peal for patronage to tho entire nation,
tha attrndaife this year alone represent
ing thirty-three states, besides two foreign
countries, 30 per cent from tha north.
An innovation of the year is the new
and thoroughly equipped school of house

mestic science and domeatlo arts, and an
attendance which has taxed the capacity
of the school. At the head of this school
aa director Is Miss Grace E. Fryslnger,

Featnres of Law Jost Enacted la
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."

Colonel Fanning
Writes of Romans
Omaha Traveler Describes the Old
Cities and Events in For
eign Life.
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."

Douglas County Attorneys Exclude
Them from Their Association.
Menken at Canr Are Always Wel

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
"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."

Fir broke out Saturday evening at I0J
South Fourteenth street, whirh threatened
the whole block at Fourteenth and Doug
las streets for a time.
An alarm was turned In from th Ruben
stein Tailoring company, 111 South Four
teenth street, aiui when the fir depart
ment arrived It found the whole rear por
tion of the block extending from the alley
to Douglaa street enveloped In smoke.
A general alarm was turned In and the
blaze was soon quenched. The Moeher
Cigar company probably was th worst
damaged concern. The firm had a number
of crates of cigars ready for shipment, and
when tho fire broke out they were scorched.
The worst frightened Inmate of the
building were the members of th Inde
pendent Political Colored club, which has
Its quarters In the block In which the fir
originated. When the alarm was soundid
colored men made a dash for the fir es
cape and by the time the fire apparatus
arrived and the stress wer filled with
people the fir escapes were filled with
negroes. However, th flames did not
reach the third floor and the negroes wrre
in no particular danger.
The fire is supposed to have started tn
a pile of papers in the basement. The
Janitor of the building cannot account for
th origin. The occupants were mostly
protected by Insurance.
