SHUMWAY ENTERS LAND RULE PROTEST Land Commissioner Takes Oc casion to Dissent from Su preme Court Opinion. State House News ASKS RECONSIDERATION (From a surf Corrcupondent.) Lincoln, May 8. (Special.) State Land Commissioner Shumway has dissented from the opinion of the supreme court in the case recently rendered in which the state loses eighty acres of land in Furnas county hecause it failed to assert its rights tor a long period of time. Mr. Shum way protests against such decision, because it will lose the state many acres of land. He said in addition: t protest also, (or the mason that It tn tirferea with the handling of this xtcu tlvo department and reflects upon the Integ rity of the officials alnco It win organUfd. Why ahould the court assume that the state nan not aaaertad Its right many tlmea through the ordinary chHnnela ot corro apondenra between this office anrl the In dividual or the county treasurers, with out aearchlng the frtre and the proceed -Ings of the Board of Public Lands and Buildings and the Board of Educational Lands and Funds since the beglnnlnjg of the state? The fact that It has not b prev iously called to the attention ot the court does not Justify the assumption that the state has been negligent In claiming lta own. Furthermore, this state has 30,000 forty acre farms besides Innumerable smaller tracts scattered through eighty-nine coun ties and tt Is utterly Impossible, with the appropriations that have been granted, to know If an occasional tract of these lands la not occupied, used or claimed by an In dividual other than the state. In the Interest of fairness, I urge a re consideration ot the decree, becauoe It lays a foundation for absorbing extensive acreage without compensation.

Senator says early peace upto kaiser Hitchcock, Thinks May Come if Hollweg Lays Down Reason able Terms. ALL EUROPE IS DESPERATE "If Von Bethmann-llollweg in his expected peace speech lays down rea sonable terms it is quite possiLte that peace will be declared in the great world war before Christmas," said Senator G. M. Hitchcock, who arrived yesterday from Washington to spend a few days here on business. "All the countries involved in the war on the other side of the Atlantic are in desperate condition," he said. "Russia is in a turmoil; Italy is fac ing financial ruin; ?mit and Eng land are seriously short 'on food and other supplies; Germany is verging on starvati n and threatened by in ternal distention; Austria is in tire same condition. Submarine Menace Serious. "On top of all this is the subma rine, which is a most serious menace. The submarine is a success, a decided success. And no adequate way has been found to fight it. "The only thing I now of now under consideration to combat it is the proposal to stretch a cordon of small vessels, cruisers, torpedo boats and so on, from the Shetland islands to the Norway coast, and have nets between these v-ssels, thus shutting the sub marines from the Atlantic ocean. "The distance is 180 miles and it would require all the small vessels of England and France and the United States and would cost $150,000,000. It is possible tlut out of many sugges tions something may come to destroy submarines mure rapidly than they are being destroyed now." Concerning war enthusiasm, the senator said it is greater in the east than it is here, but that the enlisting is greater here than in the east. . . More Enlist in West, "New York waves the most flags, but Illinois enlists more men than New York. And Nebraska shows a very healthy enlisting spirit," he said. "Washington is a scene of the great est activity now. Departments work day and night. The buildings are lighted up until the small hours. While peace may come, we are preparing for a three years' war." Senator Hitchcock is one of the three senate members of the commit tee conferring on the draft bill. He is the only one of the three in' favor nf the provision allowing Colonel Roosevelt to lead a volunteer division to France. last night. The speakers -were Miss Sarka llobeck of the State university and George H. Hastings of this place.
