Aldrlcli. fonner Kovernor and member of the Hoan! of Irrigation, made BJi argument tonlgut before the special conservation commltteo of the houso against the proposal that the state de velop its water potter and engage In fur nishing power for commercial enterprise At the outset Mr. Aldrlch paid his respects to H. R. Howell of Omaha, who was quoted as having cost aspersions upon the members of the Irrigation board who granted certain water rights t-i private companies. At the conclusion of the address, the meeting took on the appearance of a farce. Trumble and Mc JLUlster asking numerous questions to each of -which the governor had a warm reply. For instance Chairman McAllister read several minutes from the report of the conservation commission of Canada. Orodn-FIro In Wnriu. "Isn't that right, governor? "If you read It right it la," replied the former executive. Trumble asked several hypothetical ipiestlons to which the governor replied that probably the board which Invest. Bated applications for water did not understand the questions paBsetl on as veil as some who knew nothing about It. While the visitors laughed at the rep artee between the governor and members of the committee, Reich moved to ad journ and the meeting ended. Mr. Aldrlch, told the committee that he wbb present on his own Initiative; that he represented no client, no special In terest, but was merely talking as a prl ate citizen, concerned in the welfaro of his state. At tlio Uabcock hearing, for example, attorneys and others had been present, and written as well as oral argu ments had been presented to the board The former governor wont on: "In view of all thli t was Indeed surprised to note a statement In the dally press by a certain political engineer of Omaha to tho effect that the rights of the public had not been adequately pre sented, seemingly due to the fact that the public had been deprived of his services through the fault of the board In falling to seo that said services were of sufficient Importance, that the board should have adjourned its hearings, when witnesses from many parts of the state were present, until this august person- COPLEY- PLAZA HOTEL BOSTON One block I ram Back Dir Station I aaaraaicnt Is thoppmj. theatre tad rtMOCDtuI district Boston's newest hotel.

"And yet 1 am not surprised when I note thnt s0lirce of Ul0 charge of unfair treatment conies from a self-designing, unscrupulous politician, whose record as state engineer of Nebraska dis closes the fact that for the last three months of his time as state engineer, he was drawing pay from the stato and from the city of Omaha us city engineer. 'The rei-ords In tho Btate engineer's office discloses that Mr. Howell, the poli tical engineer leferred to. had the op portunity to present his views to the board before any decision was rendered In any case. Tho record discloses that he did not care to submit a brief and formal written argument, where he would have the opportunity to conslsely and logically state his views without sur plusage and have the same preserved as a part of the record "The rules of the board provide for written argumejits and briefs to be filed In each case olid when Mr. Howell was requested to submit his argument In brief, he was accorded the same treat ment as the other council and Interested parties in the case. He was at one time accorded the courtesy of an adjournment until he could appear before tho board and make his argument, which was done over the strenuous protest of all the at torneys In the case, who had not been granted that privilege. Challenge" UoirrlP Vornulty. "On the facts and records in the case, when Mr. Howell says he has not been affo.tfiod an opportunity to present his views, he speaks that which Is untrue and contrary to the record and facts. "Of all the men who have appeared before tho board from time to time In theso Important matters, Mr. Howell stands out alone as the only man with a grievance for not having been heard. "The facts are, as 1 have said, that many prominent members of the Munici pal Ownership league of Lincoln, as well as attorneys, were present at some of theso hearings and Mr. Howell himself Is on record as having declined to make a written argument. It would seem that this political engineer counts more upon his personal magnetism than any facts or logic that he might be able to adduce He does not complain that he was de prived of an opportunity to present tho o..4 and urinimpnt. If he had any. But rather ho complains that he was deprived of the opportunlt to submit his person- ! allty. In other words the gentleman counts moie upon his form than he does upon his powers of argument. AVIint the IjBW Provide. "I am here to say as a matter of law that these water power rights already granted under and by virtue of the laws of this state are accepted, subject to the control, regulation, and any future legislation that may be enacted bV the people of Nebraska. "I also state at this time, as a matter of law, that whenever It becomes a public necessity or Is proper for tho general good, that the public can condemn any service corporation and take It over. "If our engineer-politician friend from Omaha gets his way ho will have a com mission appointed to make a survey and Investigation, which competent engineers and experts have told me would cost not less than JIS.OOO, exclusive of salaries, as. to tlTose III charge of the work." "We already have too many expen sive boards and commissions, but the embarkation on this sort of a project would make insignificant the doings of boards and commissions that we now have. "Instead of frightening and discourag ing Investment for the purpose of de veloping thb water power of our state, every facility consistent with the pro tection of the public school should be granted to build these canals. Iltmell mul (he llnllrontla. "In tho city of Omaha nnd Lincoln, alone, there Is used In horso power to day, produced by steam hollers, approxi mately (10,000 horsepower. This consumes about 1,000,000 tons of coal per year. This at a cost of fl.SO er ton at the mines means that J2.0OO.0O0 Is paid out for Coal. Then add to this the freight at $1-70 per ton and you. have $2,000,000 for this Item. ThUB to the railroads and the I coal mines, Omaha and Lincoln annually i pay over HOCO.OOO. j "Js It not plain whose Interests our (engineer friend is advocating? Whether Mr. Howell is In the employ of the rail j roads or npt the argument ho mukes suits them and places dollars and cents I In their pockets. I "Let prlvato enterprises develop this ' water power and furnish the power that the railroads In the transportation of coal and the coal mines furnish, and you will save to the cities of .Lincoln and Omaha tho vast sum of J4.000.000 per year In addition to a conservation of coal.

"Let me In conclusion, then, give you a brief summary as to why I think the statu should not go Into this project, but should allow- It to bo developed by private enterprise subject to regulations. 'Firm The entire proiosltloii Is purely experimental and speculative, due not only to a limited market, but to physical dlffluultles Incident to a successful con trol of the waters of the Loup and Platte, which are so patent that all engineers regard the building of an auxiliary steam plant Indispensable. "Second The stato has no right to embark upon an experimental and specu lative undertaking, which will Impose a heavy financial burden upon the people thereof. "Tlilrd-The known largo expense that would be necessary In the preliminary I'tas" of waUr ,0er development In 1 . eaUUriv y OOL Zi3A3U 3H CWW T.V7df SM WWW AHlOVAIff tisu.3Hciaai.nl 3HJ.

'Fourth Only a limited portfon of the state will bo directly benefitted by this water power project, but under state ownership a heavy burden would be Im posed upon all the people thereof. "Fifth The state has ample power under the constitution to control the rates and services of. or take over and own, any water power company. It therefore follows that development of private enter prise subject to reasonable regulation by the state accomplishes the only legiti mate object of state ownership, without calling upon the people to assume any enormous financial burden. "Sixth-The Income from new taxable property created by tho development of a water power project would ho substan tially greater than the income derived from any plant or plants owned and operated by the state."

Tho Ledger wants all thoso schools brought together so h constitutional provision may be made to 'give the unified collegiate forces a rcr- taln share of the state revenues, follow ing the example of Wisconsin,-and glvlnir Pennsylvania "a real gre-.it stato unl verslty."

The ledger comments on he Pennsylvania situation In tho follow lrc editorial of a recent Issue: For Duo Crrnl Unl vcrallr. Tho suggostlon has often been mini' that tho 1'nlviiislty of Pennsylvania should be mado tho University of tho Stale This Is a return to Its title .ml liosltion wlien It was enlarged after tho revolution. Indeed, tho historical claim to the title and any substantial value It may enrry with It goes back to William Penn. who. In his' charter and his publi cation of it. pledged his colony to an es tablishment or higher omicauon, in anoi tlon to that for the peopUi nt large.

Other sources of income, fees from students, dormitory, dining halls, gymnasium and other such uccessorieH have raised the total Incomo for 1911-13 to mom than fi.VO.M. With this largo Income obtained without any need of applying to thn legislature or to Individuals tho University of Wiscon sin has maintained colleges of loters and science, of agriculture, of engineering, of medicine, of law. of pharmacy, of music and has shared with the Statu His torical society In a large and growing library, In a stately building provided by tho state. Tho return for this to tho state Is that one in ten of the cltliens of Wis cousin ha benefited by Its instruction that 123 cities and towns of tlio slate UBcd Us municipal refcrenco bureau, 4fi0 its hyglenlo laboratory, that H of its grud uatea are school teachers In Wisconsin nnd that many thousands carry Its influ ence Into many varied and distant field ior Intellectual activity unci usemineus.

The game started well for the variety tossers. During the first half they ran the score up to It to 9 In their favor, but lost their advantage early In the second period through a slump In their own work and the faster play of the opposing five. Captain Linn substituted Nolan at forward and shifted Welgel to guard. The change worked well and In this half the north elders scored but six points while their antagonists were making thirteen. Clinton Halsey of the university squad had a collision with Crocker, a teammate, and had to retire from the game. Nolan at forward played a stellar game.
