JUROR MULLIN ESCAPES
WITH CAUTION BY COURT
Final Chapter in Stout Case, When

GRAIJD ISLAND, Neb., Jan. 4. (Spe
cial Telegram.) The closing-Incident of
the Stout trial occurred today when Juror
Ed Mullln, who was withdrawn from the
box In the middle of the trial on the af
fidavit of W. F. Thompson, was cited to
appear and show cause why he should
not be punished for contempt. Mullln ap
peared, represented by counsel, and It was
shown from the court record that he had
admitted In the examination that he had
an opinion qualifying this, on further ex
amination, by the declaration that he
could and he would lay that opinion aside.
It was shown that he had not apparently
attempted to conceal anything. The Juror
himself did not recall the exact conversa
tion sworn to by Thompson, in which he is
alleged to have said he would like to get
on the Jury as he would take pleasure in
sending Stout to h . but declared that
he hud no prejudice against Stout upon
entering the box. It was shown that the
Juror was a man of excellent repute and
the court after a sever admonishment dis
charged him, the Juror to pay only the

ALLIANCE, Neb., Jan. 4 (Speclal.)
Members of the State Board of Education
visited Alliance Monday to Inspect the sites
offered for the new normal school. The
party was greeted by the city's foremost
citizens and taken to the Drake hotel,
where luncheon was served, being Joined
therein by the reception committee, which
consisted of Q. L. Griggs, F. E. Reddish,
W. W. Norton, 8. K. Warrick and Mayor
F. W. Harris.
The committee escorted the guests over
tho city and to the various tracts offered
for their consideration as sites for the
normal, either of which the Alliance citi
zen believes Is sufficiently attractive to war
rant Immediate acceptance for a normal.
Emphasis was laid on the advantages
offered such an Institution by the modern
city of Alliance.
The trip of the afternoon was followed at
6 o'clock by a banquet at the Alliance hotel.
which more than 100 citizens attended.
The Invocation was pronounced by Rev.
J. L. Vallow of the Methodist Episcopal
church. Ira E. Tash, postmaster and presi
dent of the Commercial club, was toast-
master. R. M. Hampton, vice president of
the First National bank and president of
the Nebraska Stock Growers' association,
entered seriously Into the advantages
offered by Alliance for the normal, In re
sponding to the subject, "Western Ne
braska Its Future Development."
"Alliance Its Moral and Religious Atmos
phere," was dwelt upon by Father W. L.
McNamara, pastor of the Holy Rosary
Catholic church. He said Alliance should
have the school because It Is a city com
posed of law-abiding citizens. "When I
discovered the subject upon which I was
to speak," said Father McNamara, "I began
to cast about for material. I betook my
self to the legal fraternity of our city and
I was informed, not by one, but by all the
attorneys of Alliance, that one attorney
could easily attend to all the law practice
of Box Butte county, and one legal gentle
man. In order to add force to his argument,
added that this one would surely starve to

tants. Yes, It Is a busy city, but from this
you must not get the Impression that It Is
not a religious city. We have nine large

ple of Alliance. Other cities can boast of
their large congregations of women, of
their large Sunday school classes, and while
we are not behind them In these, we sur
pass all others In the number of church-
"When the Catholics of northwestern Ne
braska decided to build an academy to care
for the needs of the people, they decided
after mature deliberation to place It where
It was likely to do the most good and
minister to the wants of the greater num
ber, and It was in Alliance that St. Agnes'
academy was built."
Senator L. L Raymond of Scotts Bluff
followed, speaking to the subject, "Tribu
tary Territory." Mr. Raymond said the
newly opened up portion of the valley along
the Union Pacific road was also in the van
for the location of the normal at Alliance.

Member of Law College Faculty Says
Dances, Theaters and Parties
Menace to Education.
LINCOLN, Jan. 4. -(Special.) In a talk
before the freshman law class In torts this
morning, Prof. H. H. Wilson of the Uni
versity of Nebraska Law college faculty,
declared that large cities in which universi
ties are located are a menace to the edu
cation of the young Americana who attend
those Institutions; that they offer too many
sources of amusement and entertainment
which enervate and enfeeble the young
"As I have watched your work during
the last few months," spoke Prof. Wilson
to his students, "I have been astounded by
the ravages that the evils of the modern
city life have made on the powers of the
university students of today. The large
city offers too many pleasures for consist
ent study by the college students who llvt
in it; the small town gives the best college
atmosphere, and as a result produces the
best college graduates.
"Study In the city is made difficult by
the many things that distract the student's
attention from his work. The fraternity
dances, the theaters and Lincoln now has
so many that a person can attend one every
night In the week and the many social
functions that obtain In the city, give the
students an opportunity to turn their at
tention from the class and study rooms,
with the result that their power and energy
Is sapped up by these functions outside tho
college. Even the purely innocent pleasures
when given no restraint are a big evil.
"I wish to warn you young men who are
In this law class that If you will cut out
Just one-half of your outside events during
the rest of your college life that you will
find yourselves doing much better wor
In school than you have done heretofore.
"A young man cannot remain out at a
dance or show until 12 o'clock on three or
four nights of the weet and then expect to
do efficient school work. He has not the
energy left to get to work In the right way.
A young man In college Is like the farmer
who eats up all his seedcorn he cannot
grow a crop."

UNION MEN OF STATE MEET
Federation of Labor Holds Annual
Session at South Omaha.
SOME DELEGATES WALK IN SNOW
President Maapln Says the Session la
ISot Only to Maintain Principles,
bat to Crystallse Them
The president gave In the opening of his
annual addrtss a brief history, of the or
ganisation of the state federation, which
was largely the result of his call Issued
after the adjournment of the last leglsla
ure. The first convention met with a
hearty response and eighty-three delegates
were present In the Lincoln convention
June 26, 1909.
The chaiiman then reviewed labor condi
tions of the state which he said had been
fair during the year. He made mention
of the Omaha street railway strike as the
only disturbance of magnitude. He said
the strike was lost through the influence
of the Omaha Business Men's assooiatlon,
and he declared the cause was reasonable.
Deploring the outcome, he said the street
railway company had spent enough and
lost enough, during the strike to have paid
the employes higher wages for several
years. He denounced the strike breakers
In unsparing terms.
Object of Convention.
He declared the object of the convention
was not only to maintain the prlnc.ples of
labor, but to make them practical by crys
tallzlng them Into laws. He strongly op
posed prison contract labor In competition
with men of the trades and mentioned the
last labor contract which has been drawn
a few days since at Lincoln.
He recommended that the American Fed
eration be asked to send a permanent sal
aried organizer to Nebraska.
The report of the secretary and treas
urer showed that the receipts for the year
were $325 and the disbursements were $lo2,
leaving a balance of $168 In the treasury.
