Tibbets of Adams county haa a rod In

of public Instruction and now director of
the university extension work. Penator
Tibbets Is not impressed with the Import
ance to . the state of the office Mr. Mc
Brlen holds, nor the character of service
he renders, though he Is perfectly willing
to concede the value of th office to the
personal fortunes of the Incumbent.
Therefore the Hastings statesman pro
poses to abollxh Mie office by curtailing
the appropriation therefor and he is going
to have some stout allies in his undertak
ing, too, for there are many In both
houses who feel as he does about thla
The off! wa created for Mr. McBrien,
at least- that Is the general belief. And
this belief Is helped uut by the' fact that
McBrlen was active in the movement that
culminated In the creation of the office
and Jumped Into the aeat tho minute It
was made possible. It pay him an annual
salary of $2,000. The appropriation carry
ing th expense for the office comes out
of the general appropriation fund and
when the. time comes for action on that
fund, Senator Tibbeta and his friends will
gently withdraw their rod from the pickle
and go aftec Brother McBrien.
"And we will come near getting him,"
the senator wg heard to remark.
Fight Brgaa Two Year Abo.
Senator Tibbeta recently opposed th crea
tion of this place for McBrlen two year
ago, when he was a member of the senate.
He fought It to th last ditch, but lost,
and now he believes he has reinforced hla
argument aumciently to win. And his
argument 1 going to consist, chiefly, of
the record McBrlen haa mads In th office
and the Inspirited displeasure that rcord
ha engendered. It ia contended that Mc
Brlen haa made excellent us of th office
In furthering his own political ambiltlons
and no better proof of thla will be asked
than the simple fact that the board of re

works, had occasion during th last elec
