State Board Refuses to Pay $12,500
for Land in Omaha.
OPEN KEARNEY HOSPITAL SOON

for Tuberculosis Patlrats In
llnnnlnic Order at an
LINCOLN. Neb., Nov. S. (Special.)
The etate board of public lands and build
ings today made official announcement
that It had declined to raise Its offer of
til, 000 for ten acres adjoining the state
school for the deaf at Omaha. The prop
osition of Paul V. Kuhns, the owner of
the land, was turned down by the board,
the Omaha man telling the board that the
offer of $12,500, which amount was appro
prlated by the past sesnlon of the slate
legislature, was the least that he would
tuke for the tract.
The opinion of the members of the state
board was that It would bo Inflrftely
better to have the money rather than the
land. Further, the board recommended
that better use be made of the land now
available for school uses rather than go
to the expense of buying more.
The matter of opening the now tuber
cular hospital at Kearney was taken up
at the meeting at which the Omaha mat
ter was turned down. A tenant whose
lease expires In March, 1012, has asked
Jl.000 for a cancellation. The owner who
sold the land to the state will have to
turn It over, however, when It Is de
sired. The opinion of the majority of the
members of the board Is to open the In
stltutlon before January. Mrs. P. F.
Barker of this city has already been ap
pointed head nurse of the hospital at a
salary of $75 per month.
