I lie climax of a big day's enter

visiting htudents of the University of
Nebraska enjoyed the lap supper, fol
lowed by entertainments and a dance
at the Auditorium.
Although the rain kept many away
from Omaha, so that only .lot) stu
dents came on the special train, it
proved that many had eoine over on
lluiisday evening, and Mill others
came on afternoon trains Friday when
the rains ceased. Thus when the

And the Dance Is On.
Noon the tables were cleared and
.hutitlcd out. Then dancing became
general. Joe Kelley, chairman of the
merchants' market week committee,
stepped upon the platform and made
an announcement. No matter what
he said, no one Jieard him, for there
was lots of noise, and, anyway, Kelley
had not finished his supper. He had
his mouth full of ice cream which he
uas getting in big bites from an ice
cream brick in his hand. Following
the announcement, the program went
on in good shape, so it was assumed
that he had announced its continua
tion. Scores of students had pocketed
('ranges from the table and they be
gan to roll them across the open
space on the Auditorium floor. One
Mopped in the middle. The students
then began to roll at the one for a
target. The snort developed into a
big game of bowling with oranges.

came together in a head-on collision
in the center of the floor. Others
struck the wreckage, arid in a moment
broken oranges were scattered over
the floor. v . ,

appreciated by the students.
U. S. Ilarkson, a student, leaped
upon a table in the center of the room
and led the college yells until the big
Auditorium walls fairly bulged with
the pressure of the shouting.
The dance started and continued
until shortly before 9 o'clock, when
the students hurried from the Audi

and boarded the train for Lincoln,

Archbishop Who Comes to Omaha to
Succeed the Late Bishop Scannell
Washington, D. C, May 19.
The appointment of the Most
Rev. J, J. Harty, archbishop of
Manila, P .1., since 1903, as arch
bishop of Omaha, to succeed the
, late Bishop Richard Scannell, was
announced here tonight by Mon
signor Bonzano, the aportolic
delegate. Archbishop Harty,
who is a native of St, Louis, or
ganized the parish of St. Leo's
''tere in 1838. His successor at
Manila has not been announced.
The newly appointed prelate for
Omaha is 63 yeais of age, having
been horn at St. Louis November
185,?. He was educated in the parish
schools of St. Louis and attended Si.
Louis university and St, Vincent's
college at Cape Girardeau, Mo., com
pleting his divinity studies in the lat
ter, He was ordained priest April iS,
1878 and was at first assistant rector
of St. Lawrence OToolc's church and
later was stationed at St. Bridget'
church in St. Louis, where he was
commissioned to organize the parish
of St, Leo' in St. Louis, which lie oc
cupied with widely recognied ability
until he was appointed archbishop of
Manila June , 1903.
His was one of the rare cases in
which a parish priest was elevated
without intermediate steps to the
rank of archbishop.
Late in 1914 he returned to St.
Louis on a vinit and was given a re
ception at St. Leo's chapel church,
which he founded twenty-eight years
ago. He later toured America and
went to Koine, After a journey
through Europe lie returned to the
Extends Omaha Jurisdiction, v
Cathode clergymen of Omaha who
were asked concerning the amioint-
mcnt of the new archbishop say that
an archbishop here will bring under
the supervision of its head the bis
hoprics of Kearney, Cheyenne and
Lincoln, Omaha's importance in
church circles will be greatly en
larged. Still all are in the dark as to
the plans of the head of the church
and have no other information than
that reported in the newspaper dis
Knows the Situation.
None of the local clergy is ac
quainted with the archbishop, but all
arc satisfied that his long residence
in St. Loins will make him thoroughly
familar with the problems existing
here and they look for his administra
tion to be of the greatest benefit to
fhe Catholic church in this territory.
Bishop Scannell died 'January

churchmen that a member ot tn

another possibility as a successor to

Another possibility, it is asserted,
is Y. L. Scott, president of the
Texas lines of the Southern Pacific.
Mr. Scott for a number of years was
general manager of the Union Pa

Ware, It is asserted he went to the
Southern Pacific fr the nuiuosc of

In Big Wire Plot
New York, May 19, Mayor
Mitchel, in a statement issued from
his office today, accused Senator
George F. Thompson, chairman of
the legislative conmrittee which has
been investigating wire tapping acti
vities ot the police, "of treachery to
the United States" because of bis at
tempt to investigate ihe tapping of
the telephone of the munitions-dealing
firm of Seymour & Seymour.
Mayor Mitchell in his statement
demanded that Police Commissioner
Woods be given an opportunity to
explain publicly before the commit
tee Ihe activities of the police in tap
ping telephone wires "so far as they
relate to the local situation."
"Treason to the government" read
the statement, "is defined in the law
as giving aid and comfort to the ene
mies of a government or a nation. To
deliberately destroy one of the most
powerful weapons in the hands of
the government to detect and prevent
the operations of public enemies; 1
brand as treachery, Every repetition
of these attempts to disclose the op
erations of the city police force made
in the interest of self-advertisement
constitutes a cumulative act of
treachery toward the United States."
This statement was issued after
Chairman Thompson had announced
that the inquiry into the wire tap
ping would be continued at today's
session, although in executive scs-,
sion. Thompson told Corporation
Counsel Lamar Hardy, representing
Mayor Mitchel, that "there is not
now and never was a question of in
ternational interest involved in the
case." This was after Hardy had pro-
i tested against further inquiry into
I the Seymour case on the ground that
the national interests were at stake if
publicity were given 10 the case.
