McKeen Defendant
By Order of Court
Objections to C. W. Hull's amended pe

husband into the case as a co-defendant,
were overruled by Judge A. C Troup In
the equity division of the district court
t Mrs. McKeen several weeks ago objected

The court suatalned this objection and

The suit- now Is almost rary to be
tried on Its merits. The bringing of Mc
Keen Into the case raises a question
whether the divorce suit itself was
. brought In good faith, and the trial
finally may result In setting aside of the
entire divorce decree, though thts Is not
likely. Should the decree be set aside
the marriage of McKeen and the former
Mrs. Hull would be nullified.

days over. There were young and old,
the graduates of last year and the grad

Everything was strictly informal. Tt
was like a family reunion. There were
no set speeches or oratory, but there
were numerous school songs and tales of
pranks played on the teachers. At s
. o'clock a basket dinner was spread. It
being the concluding feature of the gath

men and women, a large number of whom
have given up teaching, the women to
become wives and mothers and the men
to engage In other lines of business.

The general catalogue of the Nebraska
State university containing the record of
academic year 111-113 and announce
ments for Wi-mx are being distributed
from tbe registrar's office.
By reference to the summary of students
in th catalogue a total attendance of
MS? I recorded. A comparison of this
total with that of the academic year lu
111 shows an apparent loss of mors than
90 students This, however. Is almost
entirely due to the severing of the af
filiated relations with th conservatory of
music, and the reclassification of students

This la a decrease of sixty-nine, ss com
pared with the same total of last year.
However, taking Into account the change
In the classiflcstlon of the university ex
tension and summer session students, an
accural computation ahows that a gain
of in bona fide university students has
been made. This very nearly approaches
the gain of last year. Consequently while
th totals show a decrease in numbers the
general quality of scholarship haa been
A comparison of colleges shows an In
crease ef fifty-four In th graduate col

abolished and these students are now
registered In the College of Art and
Science. Th Teachers' college now re
ceive student of Junior and senior rank
only. Th total number registered In the
two college shows a gain of twenty-five
over last year. Th engineering college
suffered a loss of twentyelght. while the
agricultural college records a gain of
eighty-five. The college of law shows a
loss of twenty-three. This Is probably due
to th raising of th standard to Include
on year of college work tn addition to
regular entrance requirement for admis

loss of three. The school of agriculture
made a gain of seventeen In the regular

Thomas McQovera. head of lha depart
ment of public Improvement, haa aet a
pace his employes are finding It difficult
to follow. Sine he was a newsboy on
the streets of Omaha way back In ths
days before Fortune smiled on hi earn
est endeavor Mao haa had a habit. Thla
habit Is to get up at an early hour In the
morning. He begins work at T o'clock.
And he Is on th Job all day.
This habit has forced employe to th
conclusion that their Uvea hav been east
along bard line. They have worked un
der other chiefs, but when they were
weary of work they could Hough a little,
anoos for a few quiet minute or repair
to th shade of some nearby place and
soliloquise on th live of political heeler
and the chronic lav era of labor.
All the softness of th old day Is
gone, Mao has preached hi eermon. Ha
practice what h preaches and he ha
pronounced the ultimatum. "Get off thts
Job," he told in tnapector of sewer yes
terday, "this work 1 not up to specifica

conviction thst every man In his employ

to asm mine," he said. "I'v always
worked hard. I've never had such au
thority before, but now that I am re
sponslbl for this department my men
must work or they must cess to draw
pay. I hav told them a much."
This announcement ha created mild
consternation In tbe department of public
Improvement. It struck first on dum
foundsd disbelief. But Mao 1 an Irish
man who give th Impression thst he
will do a lot more than ha says. Hence
there is a new atmosphere In th depart
ment. Employe are on ths Jump. They
are getting enthusiastic. Thay are cul
tivating th acquaintance of a full day'
work. It I coming a little hard, accord

Story of The Bee's
Photo of Mark Hanna
Retold in Biography
Omaha and Th Be flgurayfn a newly
publlahed biography of Mark Hanna,
which comes from the pen ot Herbert
Croty. and the pre of th Macmillaa
company. In th account of Chairman
Henna's western speaking tour during
th campaign ot 1900, this la recalled:
"Just outside of Weeping Water a stop
waa mad by th engineer tor the purpose
of permltlng Mr. Hanna to shave before
hi meeting In Omaha. Th ptaitogrspbsr
of Th Bee took advantage of th oppor
tunity to aecure a picture ot 8onator
Hanna and his party. Just as th sena
tor was about to be photographed alone,
th engineer, grimy with coal and grease,
sauntered up to see what waa going on
'Her. you are Just th man 1 want.'
said Mr. Hanna, grasping th engineer
by th arm and drawing him Into th
field ot th lens. 'W are both engineer.
I run the republican party and you run
me.' 'Well! I guess I'v got you faded
then, senator.' said th engineer, with a
grin, aa the camera clicked. The picture
of the two engineer' was reproduced
extensively at the time and certainly
enabled a good many people to under
setand one of them better."

ing that he had already been oualshed
enough nd that there were many ex
tenuating circumstances in thq rase, one
of which was that there was uncertainty
whether he hsd embesxled anything.
It waa shown st ths trial that he had
kept no accounts, but had depended on
hla check stubs to make up his statements
from and that he had psld out money
to the girts, who were the heirs, to keep
them In school and pay other expenses.
Th check and stubs were tost, h
claimed, when In moving hi office hi

the wind. There waa a difference of
opinion aa to how much of th estate's
money he was responsible for and h had
nothing to show for what hsd been ex
pended. -. . 1
