LINCOLN, Nov. 2S.-(8pec!aU-The
war between the Statt Board of Public
Lands and Funds and the war depart
ment of Nebraska has finally been Fet
tled without referring the matter to tho
National Peace congress and the janitors'
of the state house will not have to step
over the dead body of Major Hayscl In
moving out tho furniture.
When tho edict of the board first went
out that the adjutant general should
move to the fourth floor there was much
ado. General Hall did tho weeping, Ma
jor Blrkner the watllnff and Major Hay
Bel the gnashing; ot teeth, but Governor
Morehead Is the real power behind the
"thrown." and when he said that the
National Guard believed In obeying or
ders and should therefore set a good ex
ample by obeying the orders of the board,
the war was over and tho dove of peace
z fluttered back through the window.
As soon as the Board of Control, which
Is responsible for the change, can pur
chase carpets and other equipment for
th new quarters of the adjutant gen
eral the "tramp, tramp, tramp" will be
heard along the corridors of the state
house. The new quarters of the guard
will be In tho northwest rooms ot tho
newly finished fourth floor.
