(From a Staff Correspondent).
LINCOLN. April 27.-(Spec!al.)-Pnst
sessions of tho Nebraska legislature have
developed questions which have over
shadowed nil others and have been the
mentis nt times of oreatlng antagonism
between the two branches which devel
oped Into open charges ot bat faith and
broken promises, but It was left to tho
session Just closed to develop a ques
tion which not only covered the fore
going, but wns the means of drawing
out the sesclon for 11 full week after the
day sot for closing. Tho proposition re
sponsible for this was university exten
sion or "university removal." as it wns
moro commonly referred to.
Probably nn Interview with Dr. Tal
cott will give a pretty good idea of tlit
kind of fight put up during the session
for tho retention of the university at Its
present location. Dr. Talcott represent
ed the F.lghth senatorial district, repre
senting tho counties of Cedar nnd Knox,
and wus one of the leading democrats
In the upper body, serving his second
term. The doator wan not n member of
tho senate conference committee which
was for removal of the university to the
Seoren Iilneoln I'npers.
"In all my experience and observation
of legislatures," said Senator Talcott. "I
have never seen anything put up In
the way of a fight thut was quite as un
fair and uncalled for hh thnt put up by
tho people of Lincoln and the local pa-
'pers, especially the paper of my own
political faith, ngalnst a body of men
who were doing- what they considered
best for the Interests of a state Institu
tion. From the very first part of the
session, any member who was for uni
versity extension on the stute farm site
was made tho object of editorial attacks
and every effort made to hinder his
work as a member of the legislature.
The attack was especlully aimed at Sena
tor Ollls, one of the most conscientious
members In the senate and -i democrat
we are all proud of. The charge wns
openly made that they would get Ollls'
goat before the session was over, and
because they failed was not the fault
of the local democratic sheet
"The house members charged publicly
that the delay In getting together was
due to the senate conference commit
tee falling to do business. This Is un
true. I know for a fact thut tho senate
end of tho conference committee tried
several times to get a meeting with
the house members of the committee to
no avail, nnd In desperation at one time
went over to the house and sat for more
than an hour In the office of the speaker
waiting for the house committee to show
up ,and were then told that there would
not be time for a meeting. Several at
tempts were made to hold other meetings,
but nothing could be brought about.
Then, In desperation, Senator Ollls de
cided to spring the proposition of limit
ing saloons to three blocks of the uni
versity In order to wake the house com
mittee up, and for a few days they did
wake up. Because of the spilnglng of
that proposition Lincoln papers charged
thut the liquor Interests of the state were
back of the senate committee, hoping
to put the senate committee o the bad
