Men in Political
(Prom Staff Correspondent.)
LiWCOLN, Feb. , 12. (Specials-Chancellor
Samuel Avery has Issued the fol-
"The non-partisan character of the man
agement of. the University of Nebraska
..urlnjr the forty-one years of Ha exist
ence Is a matter of public record and
need not be emphasized In this connection.
Boards of Regents, the majority of whose
mombers were democrats or republicans,
have at all times resisted the pressure of
politicians In a way which has been most
commendable and have established a prec
edent which I not likely to be sot aslda
at eny time In the future.
"Heeently there has arisen a question of
the propriety of scheduling, under the
auspices of the university extension de
partment, certain men in the state who
yirt candidates for office or who are sup--potx-d
to be fcuch, It has been, up to the
presont, the policy of this department to
publish- In its list of available speakers
the names of ,a very large number of pub
lic men of all political parlies who are
waling to discuss on the lecture platform
Wi'ica of public Interest In a non-partisan
way, and In preparing this list no dis
crimination whatever has been made on
account of the politics of the various
eakers. Furthermore, no attempt has
boon rnade o place a speaker at any par
ticular point, and in placing the speaker"
the wish of the several communities have
been the sole determining factor. These
communities pay the actual expenses of
the speakers only, the service being
gratis, and so the work has been con
ducted without expense to the university
except for the maintenance of the central
"However, in spite of the efforts to eon
duot this work In a perfectly non-partisan
way, the presence on the lecture platform
of certain men generally regarded as candi
dates, for office or for re-election has
brought criticism on the university man
agement, generally from those who have
falUd to realise that the local manage
mcs was responsible for the speaker's
presence and a man of a different political
creed could have been secured ff so de
sired. As the work of university extension
Is new to the director and to the uni
versity, the attitude of the state In, regard
to the matter has been followed very
closely by all officials Interested. After
many consultations and a very careful
study of the situation, the director of the
extension work, the chancellor, and all the
numbers of the Board of Rregents who
could be reached for consultation, are
unanimous In the opinion that it Is for
the best ' Interests of the ' university ', that
in the future no one shall be scheduled
to lert'iro under the , department ot uni
versity extension whose presence might be
reasonably Interpreted as representing a
deBire on. the part of the local committee
or on th Part, t apypne else, to Influence
in a partisan way , votes at 'any , coming
election. .... , . .
'Mitpresontatlvea ,of communities, there
fore, which desire the presence of , men In
publlo life should write directly to the
speakers themselves. Any letters from now
on received by the department of university
extension asking for the presence of any
of the gentlemen of the class under con
sideration will be sent to the speakers
asked for, explaining the reason why It is
thought - undesirable to continue their
names on our lists. The university au-
t her Ill's regret that this attitude may. de
prive the people of the state of the oppor
tunity of hearing seme of our public men
of very htgh character and will make It
Impossible for us to serve communities In
the same way that we have In the past,
but the necessity of continuing the uni
versity's record, not only of being non
partisan, but of teeming to b non-partisan.
has outweighed the other considerations.
This change In policy will not, of course,
result In the cancelling of dates already
made, as after a date Is made the depart
ment of university extension has no further
connection with the matter."
Who Gave Oat Ittert
Did Governor Shallenberger or did J. W.
Crabtree give out the letter which W. R.
Rose, then chairman of the republican
state committee, wrote to ' Mr. Crabtrcef
That Is the question which has been asked
around the state house today.
In the office of the governor clerks who
have had to do with the papers on file
raid they had not seen the letter on file
and they believed It was not In the office.
Governor Shallenberger Is out of the city,
so could not be Interviewed.
When he left the office Governor Sheldon
took with him all of his private letters, or
at least he thought he was getting them
Unless the governor himself gave out
the letter It Is thought Mr. Cr.ibtree kept
a copy before sending It to Governor
Sheldon and that he himself furnished the
copy to the demo-pop paper.

The late Mr. Brockman and Mrs. Brock-

Lincoln at his father's home.; Young
Brockman and Lincoln became acquainted,
and when the former had reached an age
to decide upon a career for the future he
wrote to Mr. Lincoln, asking his advlco
about taking up the study of law and Its
advisability as a profession. It Is Mr,
Lincoln's reply to this letter that has
been carefully guarded in the Brockman
family ever since some time before the

LINCOLN, Feb. li (Special.) While

plore" the action of a state board the

room for criticising the governor for not

Colonel W. J. Furse, private secretary to
Governor Shallenberger, has returned to
Lincoln from Alma, where he sold at auc
tion twtnty-three head of horses. Colonel
Furse reported that about 400 people at
tended the sale and that several horse
buyers who were present Informed him that
the prices paid were higher than the mar
ket price. The sale netted something over
$3,400. The large prices paid, Mr. Furse said,
he believed was due to the scarcity ot
horses for use on farms. Several profes
sional horse buyers had been buying up all
the surplus stock and for that reason ti.
farmers found themselves short.

The efforts of those working for the
Omaha convention of the laymen's mis.
slonary movement to be held here In March
are taking positive direction. Committee
organizations have been completed and
the departmental work has begun. . Mon
day night the deputation committee, which
has In charge the work which will mean
tho spreading of the campaign throughout
the Nebraska territory, will hold a meet
lng and dinner at the Young Men's Chris
At this meeting the territory for each
of tha men who go out to spread the
movement will be chosen. The deputation
committee is to concern Itself only with
Nebraska territory, as Council Bluffs has
a special committee to eare for the por
tion of the Omaha convention district lying
In western Iowa. Sixty county seat towns
In Nebraska are to be covered In the
campaign. The visitors to these towns
will be Omaha layn.en who are interested
In the movement. At each of these towns
they are to familiarize the church people
with the movement for the convention and
what It stands for. In these communities
It Is then presumed that a local organisa
tion for the purpose of carrying 'he move
ment Into the towns about the county seat
will be formed.
Campaign Work Over State.
The men who will take up the work laid
out by the deputation committee have not
yet been chosen. Among those who will
speak over the state are J.. P. Bailey, field
secretary of the Young Men's Christian
association; Judge Sutton, and Bishop Wll
Hams of the Episcopal church.
The entertainment committee, headed by
Harley O. Moorhead, held a meeting Sat
urday at noon to make plans for the con
ventlon week. An official hotel will shortly
be designated and railroad rates for the
convention quoted. The principal wck of
the committee Is In the arrangements for
the big dinner to be given at the opening
night of the convention In the Auditorium
when It Is expected that covers will be
laid for from 1,000 to 1.500 delegates. This
dinner Is to be served by the women of one
of the Omaha churches, yet not chosen,
The statistical committee Is gathering
figures to showhow much Omaha Is send
ing Into the foreign missionary field. Upon
this report much of the important work
of the convention will be based.
Larue Bum for Missionary Work.
The Detroit convention's report showed
that that city was spending 132,000 a
year on mlsrlonary work. The Impetus
given by the movemont Is credited with
an Increase in the annual contributions
to the sum of $103,000 a year. In New
York the Increase attained was from
$400,000 to $760,000. The United States
is now giving about $10,000,000 annually
to foreign missions and those behind the
movement expect that this sum may be
doubled by the series of conventions
which Is to be held across the country.
The "Omaha Standard," recently reached
by the Klrst Presbyterian church here,
has attracted a wide degree of Interest
throughout the country and because of
the attention that has been drawn to this

BANK RESUMES UNDER LAW
Sooth Dakota Statute Permits Failed

8IOUX FALLS, 8. D.. Feb. 12. (Special.)
South Dakota Is one of the two or three
states In the union which has a clause
In lta banking laws permitting failed
banks under certain conditions to resume
business. This clause Is a part of the
new banking law, enacted by the legisla
ture of 1309, and reads as follows: '
"It the public examiner, upon taking
charge of. a bank as hereinbefore provided,
shall discover that the said bfink is only
temporarily embarrassed, for want of avail
able funds, and that in his opinion the
bank would have been placed In the hands
of a receiver and its affairs liquidated, with
the result that the funds of depositors
would have been tied up for months, and
In the end they would perhaps have had
to accept a very small percentage of tha
amounts actually due them.

deputy . to Carlock to take actual charge
of the bank and ascertain ths value of
the assets and extent of the liabilities.
Under the guidance of the state bank
examiner .the bank now has been reorgan
