The trouble started when 'three

'maintenance bill for the "University
of Nebraska and iik 'branches. They
declared that the Omaha mcdicat col
lege buildings should be taken .care
of out of the university building fund.
This was fiercely debated for half
an hour, when Trumble moved thau
the committee ot the wnoie report
progress on the bill and ask leave to
sit again. The motion prevailed, and
then Trumble, affer the committee"
had risen, moved to not concur in
the action taken on the tlrree bills
involving the Omaha end of the ap

As the procession left the Court of

the tjavalry formed a hollow square,
with the president's carriage in the

where the president and vice presi

inatrgural addresses, occupied Jittle
more than an hour, and it was shortly

; My. Fellow Ciluent: The four
years which have elapsed since last I
stood in this place have been crowded
with counsel and action of the most
vital interest and consequence. Per
haps no equal period in, our .history
has been so fruitful of important re
forms in our economic and industrial
life or so full of significant changes in
the spirit and purpose of our poli
tical action. We have sought very
thoughtfully to set our house in or
der, correct the grosser errors and
abuses of our industrial life, liberate
and quicken the processes of our na
tional gtnius.and energy and lift our
politics to a broader view ot the peo
ple's essential interests. It is a record
of singular variety and singular dis
tinction. But I shall not attempt to
review it. It speaks for itself and will
be of increasing influence as the years
go by. This is not the time for et
rospect. It is time, rather, to speak
our thoughts, and purposes concern
ing the present and the immediate

"Although we have centered coun
set and action with such unusual con
ccntration anj success upon. the great
problems of domestic legislation to
which we addressed ourselves four
years ago, other matters have more
and more forced themselves upon our
attention, matters lying outside our
own life as a nation and over which
we had not control, but which, despite
our wish to keep free of tlicnt, have
drawn us more and more irresistibly
into their own current and influence.
"It has 'been impossible to avoid
them. They have affected the life of
the whole world. Iheyyiave shaken
men everywhere with a passion and
an apprehension they never knew be
Currents in National Life.
"It has been hard to preserve calm
counsel while the thought. of our own
people swayed this way and that un
der, their influence. We are a conl
pdsite and cosmopolitan people. We
are of the blood of all the nations
that are at war. The currents of
our thoughts as well a the currents
of our trade run quickly at all sea
sons' back and forth between us and
them. The war inevitably, set its
mark from the first alike upon our
minds, our industries, our coinjnerce,
our politics and our social action. To
be indifferent to it or independent of,
it was out of the question. "
"And yet all the while we have
been conscious that we were not part
of it We were conscious, despite
many divisions, we hive drawn closer
togctlrer. We have been deepfy
wronged upon the seas, but we have
not wished to wrong or injure in re
turn; have trained throughout' the
consciousness . of standing in some,
sort apart,-intent upon an interest
that transcended the immediate is
sues of the war itself. As some of
the injuries done us have be-ome in
tolerable, we have still wade it clear
that we wished nothing for ourselves,
that we were not ready to demand for
all mankind fair dealing, justice, the
freedom to live and be at ease against
organized wrong. 1
