LINCOLN. Neb., June 16-Speelal.)-That
the finances of the state are pick

at the close of business Saturfin-. the
treasury was $4.".O0O to the gwl as com
pared with S1S.O0O the Saturday preced
ing; and a month ago several thousand

Car of Stone Fonnd.
At last the lost is found. The last
car of stone for the Lincoln monument
has been found in Kansas City. Work
lias been delayed several weeks on ac
count of the non-arrival of thla Identi
cal rut, and while it would seem to be
pretty hard work to lose track of a
carload of big granite, such is the fact
and for more than two weeks the rail
way companies have been trying to lo
cate the big blocks of stone, which left
Quincy. .Mats., weeks ago.
The controversy which was recently
started over fhe publication by a Lin
coin paper of an article 'claiming that
the granite was not good stone, ha not
created very great alarm. Treasurer
George, who Is a native of Massa
chusetts and was born and raised near
the Quincy quarries, where the atone
came from and has seen lota of It, says
that the stone la all right He further
says that he never saw anything which
came from Massachusetts, but what was
all right. In this statement ha is backed
up by two or three other native son
and daughter of the old Bay Star, who
are holding down jobs in the statt house,
