To Investigate Institutions.
Apart from the action of the, house
in providing for a legislative investi

gation of four years of the Manuel ad
ministration of Uie boys' industrial
school at Kearney.

of Red Willow being sufficient to lay
Uie matter over one day under Uio
senato rules. A promised deficit of
close to $30,000 at the school furnish

with sufficient reasons for its adop
tion by tho senate. It is likely that
