Featnres of Law Jost Enacted la Maaaachaaetta. The college extension ideas of Edmund Dana Barbour, a wealthy and philanthropic cltlren of Boston, have been embodied in law recently enacted by the legislature of Massachusetts and approved by the gov ernor. The plan contemplates extending the benefits of college education to the people of communities distant from public colleges. No college buildings are to be erected, rub lie buildings, particularly high school buildings, will be utilized during the hours of Idleness, thus reducing the cost of main tensnce to a minimum. "The scheme ap peals to me as a business man," says Mr, Barbour. "It Is co-operative. It utilizes by-products and It establishes the plant at (he scat of raw material. I could not be lieve that young men and young women should be compelled to go a long way from their homes for a college education, any more than the people ot a village or town Should all be compelled to go to a town pump for water. Take the college to them was my Idea. The work of the new Institution is to be gin when 1500,000 shall have been subscribed, Mr. Barbour has already given $100,000; he has a promise of $100,000 more, and is con fidant that he can raise the rest within a nhort time. After this amount has been obtained he will set about raising an en dowment fund of $2,000,000. "If we succeed in getting the $3,000,000," said Mr. Barbour, "It Is Intended to use the Income of $150,000 yearly for scholarship fees for 1.000 boys and girls who may wish to enter one of the older colleges for their fourth year and receive their degrees there. In that way this Massachusetts college will become a kind of college extension for all tha colleges. Under the law of lajpaes, as we have figured It out, the income from the $3,000,000 ought to provide enough money for all those who need it who remain for ths fourth year." UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN.

Writing to Omaha friends, Colonel Charles E. Fanning, the officer of the gov ernor s staff who never donned his uni form, says his eyes have seen and his feet have trod pavements that are 8,000 years old and still in fairly good condition. "They are a bit rough, though," writes Colonel Fanning, "and It would be quite an Improvement to replace them with Purlng ton block." Colonel Fanning also describes with much sentiment some of the roads over which the Caesars marched their troops In the grand old days. - , "Thousands of captives-, have been led over these roads as slaves," writes Colonel Fanning, "and as one .views them stretch ing away In the distance ho can almost im agine he sees tha victorious legions, with their flaunting banners and glittering arm- raent, proudly marching homo with their long lines of captive warriors, women and workers. Of oourse, today these wonderful roads, built by the old nwman contractors, give no hint of the historic scenes they have witnessed, bu they are hi a remark able state of preservation." On the subject of Monte Carlo, where his party watched the gambling games from a safe distance. Colonel Fanning Bays: 'We have found that If you go against the games here they will put you 'on th hog.' The man behind the table gets the money here Just as easy as he does In the United States, but with a more artistic touch and amid surroundings calculated to make a fellow forget the cold feeling due about tomorrow." Of Naples he says: "Omaha Is pretty rich, and so are a great many other Amer ican cities, but it looks like all the wealth of the world was centered hereabouts. It Is called the most beautiful spot In the world, and the most cosmopolitan, but Omaha will look mighty good to mo."

FLASH CONSTITUTION ON ERMINE Menken at Canr Are Always Wel come aa Gneate, Bswws noeeh Male at Baanet at Loral Hotel. Members of ths Douglas County Bar as sociation voted Saturday night as they sst around the banquet board at th Loyal that the district Judges and county Judge should be guetts of the association at all times, but that they could not become members. The question came up when th application of Judges Redlck and Sutton were read along with a list of twenty other appli cants for membership. It was held that tho constitution specifically said that only practicing members of th Douglas oounty bar could become members of th asso ciation. Charles A. Goss, former United States district attorney, spoke on soma of th phases of the federal court procedure and especially on what extent th laws of tha state control the federal courts. He said tho law of the ststes ar regarded as rules of procad ire In trials at common law In th federal courts In cases where they apply. "The common law, as It exists in the individual states today, is th common law of England as It existed tn th early part of the Seventeenth century, when colonists from England settled In America," said Mr. Goss. "Rules of evidence are aa they were in that state at the time th state was admitted, except tor such changes as have been mads by congress and not by the state legislatures. Federal courts are not always bound by state decisions. "Federal courts are coordinate with, but not subordinate to the Jurisdiction of the state courts, and are bound to exercise their own Judgment as to the meaning and effect of those laws." Judge Lee Eatelle told some reminis cences of the early days In Nebraska, and Judge Day discovered that Howard Smith was the only attorney around the banquet board who waa practicing law in Douglas county when he arrived in Omaha twenty- six years ago. "I have seen many young men with brilliant minds come to this bar and go down the road to ruin," said Judge Day In speaking to the younger men. "If you young men apply yourselves to Indus try, self-reliance and good character. It will carry you above any who might be endowed with a silver tongue." Notable Speakers at Ad Convention List Includes John Temple Graves, Me dill McCormick and Lew W. Hill. A list of the speakers who will be in vlted to address the Associated Ad Clubs of America when they meet In Omaha July IS, 19 and 20, has been prepared.

Gil lette of razor fame, George S. Parker of the. lucky .curve, L. W. Hill president of the Great Northern railroad; Herbert Quick, editor of Farm and Fireside at Springfield, O., and William Morris Reedy, editor of the St. Louis Mirror.

OMAHA, March 11. -To the Editor of The Bee: In A. D. Bremen's letter, which appeared In yeoterday's Be, I find noth ing in the line of Information, nothing that would alter my expressed views, to which the aforesaid writer take exception. She writes aa If sh had Just had a talk with the parish priest. If Henry VIII could have moved the pop to consent to his divorcement of Katherine ot Arragan (though Leo's op position was not so atrong aa Wolsey's. who foresaw his own power wane with the eel I pee of hla friend and obedient servant, Katherine), perhaps the matri monial antics which the bloated monarch afterward Indulged In would never have taken placa W do not forget that Henry VIII had been educated for th church; Indeed, for th seat of errhlbnhop of Can terbury, which he would have filled had his elder brother, Prino Arthur, lived to succeed their father, Henry VII, on the throne. After all that may be said against Henry VIII, to his credit b It written that he gave England her first Protestant queen, Katherine Parr, a woman whom her coun try may hold up as on of the few shining lights of those dark days of political and religious Intrigue and persecution. Ths suggestion that I "tak th trouble" to enter the church and pick up a prayer book to read certain chapters provokes a smile, as I am not unfamiliar with the in terior of the church in question. The command to Its married children to "live In peace" Is good, excellent. Too bad 'tis so poorly followed. Very respectfully, XENIA FAIRCHILD.
