MNCOLN, Jan. 21.-(Speclal.)-,lncoln
papers have been throwing catnip fits
the past two weeka for fear that when
the meetings of organized agriculture
were held this week In this city someone
would attempt to Influence thoso In at
tendance In favor of moving the state
university out to the stato farm. They
liopcd and prayed that the proposition
would not be forced upon the visitors
ind that they would bo allowed to look
the situation over calmly and no one
liUtt In and attempt to prejudice them in
any way when they looked over the two
propositions of university extension. But
now that the visitors aro hero ono sheet
Is full of double-dlstllled headllnera. in-
.Btructlng the farmers how they should
vote on the proposition and giving1 them
to understand that to move the uni
versity to the farm would be a great loss
financially to the state.
Proposition ! Mlmrrnreiienteil.
Not only Is this paper attempting to in-
Jluenco the visitor how he should vote.
but it is not above misrepresenting the
proposition In its frantic efforts to save
the Institution as a prey for the business
Interests of the city. In Its issue last
night it had the audacity to say that to
move the university to the state farm
would mean a sacrifice to the state of
all the buildings now upon the present
campus and also every building but
three at tho state farm would be de
stroyed to "carry out the verv elaborate
Bcheme of new university development
Just why any Lincoln paper should take
advantage of visitors to tho city and
flaunt In their faces such statements Is
Jiard to understand and much comment
was heard last night about the matter,
come visitors going so far as to say that
they were tired of coming to Lincoln and
having the papers try to show them what
they ought to do when they get home.
The fact of tho matter Is that the
present buildings on the down town
campus will not bo lost to tho state In
tho case of removal to tho state farm.
Just why business interests of Lincoln
cannot see beyond their noses Is hard to
understand. The present plan of the Com
mercial club to build up In Nebraska's
capital city a wholesale and manu
facturing center for this section of the
country could not be better carried out
than by a removal of the university to
the stato farm and the vacation of the
present buildings, nearly all of which
would make Ideal places for either whole
wale or manufacturing plants, yery re
cently a large manufacturing plant em
ploying 700 people was compelled to take
ft downtown, building because It could
,not. find a suitable - building elsewhere.
jiHaa the university buildings been vacant
any one of eight buildings there would
ihave been ideal for its use and with the
- Iieatlng plant already Installed the whole
Broup of buildings could be ised suc
No Plan for Destruction.
The statement Tthlchl s openly crltlolseoj
-the most was the ono made, that bulld
.inge at the farm would be destroyed to
make room for the very "elaborate
.scheme there for university extension."
Thetruth is that thero is no adopted
plan for extension on tho farm. 'Lots of
pcoplo have made plans, but none of
them has been adopted
made to mako visitors bellevo that there
Is any "elaborate" plan arranged for Is
wholly wrong. Plans have been drawn
contemplating several mothods and even
this Lincoln paper published a plan some
time, ago for extension and erection of
mew buildings on the downtown campus
to cost tho people of the state H.000,000
The one thing which should be borne
In mind by everybody Interested in uni
versity removal Is that new buildings
will have to be built on the six blocks
purchased by tho stato for the down
town campus Just the same as there will
Iiuvo to bo new buildings built at the
btate farm it the university goes there.
Jt Is a proposition of tweedle-dee and
twcedlerdum, the balance, if any being
in favor of moving the university to the"
farm and then disposing of the present
Property downtown, which, according to
the Lincoln paper, tho building alone are
worth J959 KO. and surely would bring half
that much. If not nearly, their full value

LINCOLN, Nob., Jan. :i.-(8peclnl Tele
gram.) The address of General John L.
Webster at tho opening spsslon. of tho
Stato Historical society last night wok
given ono of tho greatest tokens of ap
preciation ever given nn address in thM
city, tho great audience rising In a body
at the close as a testimonial to tho good
things expressed therein by the orator.
Today's session of tho society failed to
develop tho antagonism to tho officers
which was fcured might arise, thejiohemo
to get the scalp of cither President Web-'
stcr or Secretary Tnlne, being a flash In
tho pan, tho vote to re-rlnct tho old of
ficers being practically unanimous. Only
eleven Insurgents had tho courage to
stand up nnd face tho music and not
one of them raised his voice against the
motion to make tho elections unanimous.
Ono man asked what tho society had
to do wth the publishing of tho tlilM
volue of Morton's History of Nebraska
and tas told by President Webster that
It had absolutely nothing to do with It.
Ho then asked If there was a ring within
a ring In the society nnd' was again
told absolutely that there was 'not.
Criticism of Secretary Paine felt when
ho announced that he had los $11,000 In
publishing tho work, had disposed of his
Interest In It three years ago and had
received nothing from Its publication In
the past six years.
The election of officers then resulted
unanimously as follows: President, John
Tj. Webster, Omaha; vice president, Ro
bert Harvey. Lincoln, nnd 8. C. nassctt
lGbbon; secretary, C. S. Paine, Llncpln,
treasurer, Dr. P, L. Hall, Lincoln: mem
