Buenos Ayp.es, July 9.— The President
of the Argentine Republic has authorized
the issue of bank notes to the amount of
$100,000,000 for the puruose of relieving the
.financial situation. The rejection of the
proposed sterling loan has caused great ex
citement on the Bourse. At Montevideo
the run on tne banks continues.
Despite the objections raised by the Min
ister of Finance, Congress referred to the
Finance Committee the Cedilla Note Bill,
providing for the emission of $100,000,000
notes, 10 per rent of which shall be re
deemed ami burned annually.

New Yoke, July 9. A cable dispatch
from London says that in view of the prob
able necessity of the shipment of gold to
either Buenos Ay res or Montevideo, to pre
vent the suspension of specie payments, the
Bank of England was reported to be arg
ing 5 per cent to-day lor discounts, though
the official rate, established last Thursday,
was only 4 per cent. It is expected the
bank to-morrow will raise the rate to 5 per
cent. This has caused a general selling of
American stocks, which were all from '•' to
154 lover in London before the opening of
the New York market. It is expected, also,
that gold shipments from New Tors will
soon be resumed.

the office of the Postmaster-General, they
found that ho was absent. They saw the
Sub-Controller, however, and stated their
demands to him, but he informed the depu
tation that he was powerless to reply on
his own responsibility. The deputation in

THE CHINESE MINISTER.
What He Did Say on the Subject of
Washington, July 9.— The Chinese Min
ister admits having had an Interview with
a World reporter, but says his language was
misrepresented. He did say that China
had ample provocation to retaliate for
the action of Congress, but he made
no threat that Americans would be
excluded from China He said a few hot
heads had advanced such a proposition, but
it had never been for a moment entertained
nor is it likely to be. He alao denies that
Bayard and the late Minister from China
formulated the now treaty after passing the
Exclusion Act, embodying that law.

Baton- Rouge, July 9,— To-night the lot
tery matter was submitted to the Judiciary
Committee of the Senate, which, by a vote
of Bto 3, made a report which disposes of
the matter. The report holds that the Gov
ernor has, under the State Constitution, no
power whatever to veto a bill proposing an
amendment to the Constitution, and speaks
rather sharply of Governor Nicholls' action
in so doing, saying in part: "Any infringe
ment by the Executive of the Constitution
is alive with great and distressing danger to
the liberties of the people. It is resolved,
therefore, that the veto of the Governor,
whicli is without authority, be returned to
the House of Representatives and that the
Clerk of the Senate furnish the Governor
with a copy of this resolution."
This report was adopted and so tho whole
matter is disposed of.
The Attitude cf the Pac fie Coast Assailed in
the Eastern States.
New York, July 9.— first-class raid
against Chinese exclusion seems to be on
foot throughout the East. A fraudulent
interview with the Chinese Minister on the
subject is being made the excuse for attacks
on California and the Pacific Coast gener
ally on account of its attitude on the
Chinese question. Colonel Bee succeeds in
having his special plea for Chinese printed
in the World through the agency of a tele
graphic correspondent in San Francisco.
Wharton Barker, who was engaged with
Count Mitkiewitcz in securing alleged great
concessions from China for a Philadelphia
syndicate, also appears iv a lengthy article
to abuse the restriction acts. The majority
Of the Washington correspondents of the
New York, Boston and Philadelphia papers
to-day take a hand in spreading the idea
that the restriction measures are unjustifi
able and deiiiarrogi -al, and many papers in
other sections East niso seize the occasion
to read the Pacific Coast dwellers a lesson.
Nothing like it has been seen in the East in
years, and never since the Chinese Literary
Bureau at Washington, San Francisco and
New York went Into the business of dis
torting facts concerning the Chinese ques
tion ou the Pacific Coast.
KILLED HER HUSBAND.
An Atlanta (Ga.) Woman Uses Her Dagger
With Fatal Effect.
Atlanta (Ga.), July 9.— "With words
that weep and tears that speak," Mrs.
Charles Gould, who is confined in jail at
Murphy, X. C, on the charge of murdering
her husband, declares the killing was unin
tentional; that she was forced to it to pro
tect herself from a man who, when sober,
was a loving, careful, thoughtful husband,
but who under the influence of liquor was
a disgraceful, inhuman brute, whose chief
pleasure lay in torturing her with threats
of violence. It was not the husband this
quiet, golden-haired little woman killed, it
was the beast. The story in brief is that
Gould and his wife came to Murphy from
England, wheie they spent money with
priucely liberality. The other day Gould
returned from a hunt and drunk, began to
abuse his wife and struck her with a riding
whip. In the struggle which ensued she
drew a dagger from her bell ami stabbed
him blindly, furiously till dead. She now,
heart-broken, is in jail awaiting trial.
ENGLAND AND AMERICA.
Tha Eonds of Union Ee'weeu the United
States and Great Britain.
Baltimore, July 9.— Lord Wolseley, In a
letter received in this city, writes: "The
closer the bonds of union between mother
and child— England and the United States—
the better it will bo for both, and our race,
and, indeed, for civilization. Those who
rant about causes of quarrel between us
are no friends to either nation or to human
ity. There must never be war between us,
no matter how much either or both may be
egged on by those who Pate the En
glish race, and would, therefore,, like to see
us at one another's throats. We feel quite
as proud of the United States as any of its
people cau be. its honor and its reputa
tion are as dear to us as they can be to those
on the other side of the Atlantic, and I re
joice above all things to think that this mu
tual respect we have always had for one

Against Di'criminatine K-port«.
New Y'okk, July 9.— A special from
Washington says that Spreckels has gained
a victory by the issuance of a new circular
concerning the sampling and classification

order that with tho view to securing uni
form results in the testing of sugars at Iho
several ports, samples will be tested daily

A Total Failure cf the Crop— Ho Peaches, Aj-
pies or Fears.
Dover, July — This season not a single
car-load of peaches will be shipped from
the entire Delaware peninsula. Pew grow
ers will have even a basket for their own
use, and many not a single peach. In
former times It was no extraordinary thing
for 300 car-loads to be shipped daily, and
some stations sent off as many as thirty
five car-loads in a single day. The failure
of the fruit crop is not confined to peaches,
Out apples, pears, plums, grapes and cher
lies are all short and scarce, so that a gen
eral dearth is inevitable.

despondency of the men was but a lull be
fore a storm. Two hundred strikers a;-
Beared in Main street and proceeded t'J
Twelfth street to where about forty men
were employed. The strikers rushed upon

ing and striking a man named John Fos
ton in the left arm. The strikers then
charged, but Anderson held his ground
with a drawn revolver, and the mob threw
bricks and clubs, and anything they could
lay their hands upon. When the Mayor

The Sun Obscured by a Clcud of Dust One Hun-
dred Feet High.
Cleveland, July 9.— The wind-storm
which swept over the city last evening was
the most severe ever experienced. The ad
vance of the storm seemed to be in a num
ber of sharp, quick gusts, that wrecked
Chimneys, blew down trees, and sent every
thing movable through the air. its coming
was shown by a cloud of dust one hundred
feet high, which obscured the sun and made
the streets as dark as midnight. Not a
single object could be discerned at a dis
tance of fifty feet. The fine dust filled the
eyes and sifted into the clothing, and
breathing, to those on the streets, was im
possible without a handkerchief pressed lo
the nostrils. Then came the rain in rush
ing, swirling sheets, that beat down many
plants and caused exceedingly heavy loss to
the crops. In every part ol the city large
trees were uprooted. The damage on tlie
ore docks along the old river bed will
amount at least to $80,000. The telegraph
and telephone companies lost a number of
wires, wliile the service of the Fire and
Police departments was nearly wrecked.
Half a dozen yachts inside the breakwater

to-day received a message from Manager
Waters of the Yellowstone National Park
regarding the bursting out of the new
crater geyser yesterday. It quieted down
somewhat during last night. At half-past
C o'clock this morning there was a solid
column of steam forced up constantly to a
height of from ISO to 173 feet, and about
seventy-five feet in diameter. The
roaring had subsided considerably. The
location is exactly identical with the "New
Crater" geyser, The old hole is enlarged
to a width of about eight feet and a uew
hole is visible auout six feet from the old
one, which is about eight by twelve feet.
Very little water, however, is coming out
of it. All the pine trees iii the neighbor
hood are covered with thick sediment.
Present appearances seem to indicate that
the geyser will go down considerably soon.

now goes to the President for his signature.
On motion of Blair the Semite proceeded to
executive business. The doors were opened

tion Bill was reported. Allison stated he
would ask its consideration to-morrow.
The consideration of the conference report
on the Silver Bill was resumed.
Cockrell continued bis argument against
the report and criticized the last clause of
the second section of tho conference bill
and said the language therein indicated a
preference for the single gold standard.
The section reads, so he would interpret,
that until a parity between the metals be
established gold would be given the prefer
ence and legal tender notes be redeemaed
Teller controverted this assertion.
Jones of Arkansas read an extract from
an article in yesterday's New York Even
ing Post, a paper opposed, he said, to sil
ver legislation in all its forms, to the effect
that the conference report contained some
features not embraced in either the House
bill or the Senate bill, and tending to make
it a better measure than either. It also
stated lhat the purpose of the silver men
Cockrell— Precisely what I have said.
That article is from a very able representa
tive of the gold interest, and it is a warning
to the Senator from Nevada (Jones) that
he has abandoned the cause of the equaliza
tion of silver with gold. Under this con
ference report the Secretary of the Treasury
can drive the country to part with every
dollar of gold, and lock up in the vaults of
the Treasury every dollar of silver. That
is the most dangerous power given to the
Secretary of the Treasury since the founda
tion of this Government.
Piatt— Hoes the Senator mean to say he
would not give the Sccietary of the Treas
ury discretion as to which coin he would
Cockrell— l certainly would give him that
discretion. I would say "redeemable in
Piatt— That is all there is to say.
Cockrell— That Is true, but there is with
it a declaration which is a fatal thing, and
that is that the gold standard still exists
ami must be maintained.

ference bill, Cockrell entered a most earn
est aud solemn protest against it as mean
ing a practical cessation of silver coinage
after July, 1891.
Joues of Nevada— That is all we want.
Cockrell— ln other words, the Senator
from Nevada is willing to abandon the
double standard, to make silver a mere
commodity, to step its coinage and to tell
the people of the country he has done
something for them in the restoration of
the double standard. The conference bill
is a total abandonment of all pretentions to
a double standard.
Mitchell, in the course of some questions
involving Cockrell's consistency, remarked
that while he was in lavor of the fret, aud
unlimited coinage of silver, he would sup
port the conference bill because it was all
the friends of silver could get.
St Cockrell— l believe that if the Senate will
reject this report the House will, in tiie
end. agree to the Senate bill. We have
made no determined effort to support the
Senate bill. We show no backbone; we
show no disposition to stand by what we
have solemnly done, aud we give truth fully
to tin* assertion of the mouometalists of the
East that the bill was only a project to fur
nish a market for silver bullion.
Daniel addressed the Senate in opposi
tion to the Silver Bill, a question which he
said was a great deal bigger than the Presi
dent of the United States, or whether the
President's name was Benjamin Harrison
or Gruver Cleveland. Daniel argued that
under the conference bill 870,000,000 worth
of silver bullion would be piled up in the
Treasury every year, fur all the years that
the silver stream would be flowing, and not a
dollar of it could be coined to pay the bonds
or the obligations of the United States,
which were payable in coin. Such an
enormous discrimination against silver as
that never existed iv legislation, except
when silver was completely de
monetized. He admitted it would
be better - that the conference
hill should become law than no bill on the
subject should become a law; but it was a
mere makeshift. Sooner or later, Daniel
said, Congress and the Executive had got
to come into a collision on the silver ques
tion. Why not let the collision come now ?
If the friends of silver stood up to the fight
they could win it, and if they ran away they
"would lose it. If they believed in the free
coinage of silver, as he did, they should
stand by the Senate bill and let the Presi
dent if the United Slates take care ol him

The Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation
Bill Fails to Pass.
Washington, July 9.— ln the House this
morning llitt of Illinois, from the Commit
tee on Foreign Affairs, reported back the
resolution requesting the President to fur
nish the House with the correspondence be
tween the Government of the United States
and Great Britain, touching the subjects in
dispute in Behriug Sea since Marcii 1, ISB9
After some donate the resolution was
Uitt presented the Conference report on
the Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation
Bill. In the course of the discussion that
followed, reference having beeu made tn the
appropriatiou made by the last bill for the
protection of United States rights In Samoa,
MoMillin (Tennessee) declared it now ap
peared that the entire result of the Samoan
negotiations had been to enthrone a King
who bad been dethroned by his people.
Our representatives, scut abroad for the
purpose of settling Samoan matters, bad
actually gone to the extent of overriding
the will of the people of Samoa and selling
up as King a scapegrace who had been de
throned ; and moreover, this American -Ad
ministration bad undertaken to pay part of
the expenses of In- kingdom. It was a dis
grace to the American people and to the
Administration responsible for the negotia
McCrenry of Kentucky, who was Chair
man of the Committee on Foreign Affairs
in the last Congress, said be believed we
had done the best that could be done, and
McMillin was putting it too strongly. . If
he was not satisfied with tbe negotiations
be could Introduce a bill to carry out his
views, or he could call for the correspond
ence with foreign nations. There was not
a word about Samoa in the present bill. • -
McMillin — The gentleman - has admitted
taking up the deposed King and placing
him on the throne. Was there not another
agreement that a Chief Justice should be
appointed aud the governments of the
United States and Great Britaiu and Ger
many jointly guarantee his salary? •-:
: McCreary — Tho gentleman ■ states it -.- too
strongly. The Samoan question , has noth
ing to do with this appropriation bill.:. '
. Hitt demanded the previous question, de
clining to yield to McMillin, who .was de
sirous of ■ continuing the Samoan contro-
versy.' . . . .- •,- r>: /:
Thereupon McMillin raised the point of
no quorum, pending which Rogers of Ar
kansas moved that the House adjourn.
Lost— Ayes 70, noes 98.
The previous question ordered— ayes 103.
The Speaker declared a quorum present,
and then McMillan moved a reconsidera
tion. . The vote on tabling the motion to
reconsider resulted : Ayes 104, noes 60, the
Speaker counting, through tho clerk, a
quorum, and declaring the motion carried.
Brcckenridge (Kentucky) challenged the
correctness of the count. Instancing the
names of Enloe, Herbert, CrainandFithian,
and stating they were not present Subse
quently lie withdrew his challenge to the
names of Craln and Fitlilan but persevered
so far as Enloe and Herbert were concerned.
The Speaker, admitting the necessity for
absolute correctness, said that in the record
those members were present and voting;
but even eliminating the names of Enloe
and Herbert, there was a quorum present.
He therefore declared the motion to tablo
carried, and put the question on agreeing
to the conference report.
The vote was resumed, resulting in ayes
111, noes 33, and the Speaker was unable to
count a quorum, so the conference report
has not been agreed to for the present.
CENTRAL AMERICAN REPUBLICS
Trouble Brewing Over the Proposed Confedera
Washington, July 9.— That trouble is
brewing among the Central American re
publics over tho proposed confederation,
which may result at any moment in war, is
manifest from the latest advices received in
this city. The jealousy and distrust with
which each country views the designs of
the other, together with other matters, the
chief of which is the great disparity in the
respective national debts and the local ad
vantages of the Nicaragua Canal, have com
bined to raise the bitterest opposition to a
scheme which would link together in one
nation tho Central American republics of
Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, San Sal
vador and Guatemala. Among the diplo
mats here it is talked that instead ol draw
ing to a peaceful and amicable settlement
the imbroglio is daily becoming more com
The story of the death of President
Menendez of San Salvador is given as fol
lows: At the banquet table a small bottle
of wine was set apart for the President's
own use. Jn fact, the guests surrounding
him had bottles of a similar character.
During the progress of the banquet the
President complained of not feeling well
and asked to be excused. He retired to a
room and in a few minutes was seized with
convulsions, frothed at the mouth and
turned livid. Medical aid was summoned,
but without avail. Within three-quarters
of an hour the lifeless body was all that
was left of the President of "San Salvador.
General Ezeta was at once summoned, aud
collecting all his available forces, he
inarched to the White House and took pos
session of the Presidency, causing his
soldiers and remaining guests to proclaim
him Provisional President.
The following morning General Ezeta
summoned the same Ministers who were
with President Menendez and requested
them to remain in office subject to his or
ders. This the Cabinet agieed to do, but
within twenty-four hours General Ezeta
made himself master of the situation, dis
banded the Cabinet and selected new men
known to be opposed to Guatemala's scheme
to secure control in San Salvador, and who
were mere in accord with the will of the
people at large. As soon as Ezeta formed
a new Cabinet he found the Guatemalan
faction in San Salvador maturing plans for
his overthrow. The ringleaders in the plot
were summarily dealt with. No less than
thirty were shut and about forty were ex
iled from the country. The garrisons at
the seaports and on the frontiers are being
re-enforced and San Salvador to-day may be
fairly said to maintain an armed peace. The
military, which had been considerably re
duced during Menendez' administration, is
now being re-enforced and all civilians are
llHble to military duty.
Nicaragua, learning of this, became con
siderably alarmed. As she desired to avoid
bloodshed she consulted with Costa Rica,
and efforts are being made on the part of
these two republics to induce San Salvador
to promise not to lend her aid to any
movement toward union that may. be ac
companied by. force. ... ..„ .„ ... . „ .
The Nicaragiiaii Canal is playing an Im
portant part in the matter. The interests
of both Costa Rica and Nicaragua are akin
in this enterprise, even were it necessary
to use desperate measures to avoid submit
ting in any way to Guatemala. Both Nic
aragua and Costa Rica have the idea in
view of entering into a confederation with
the United States of Colombia. The prime
outlook of this hinted federation is protec
tion to mutual interests on one side and
the control of the only interoceanic commu
nication on the American continent on the
other. Should this federation take place
the keynote to all Pan-American enter
prises will, it is said, be held by tiie three

"New York City, Minneapolis, St. Paul and

will be a perfect rush of census returns, and
these will be published as fast as tabulated.

REDUCED FREIGHT RATES.
The Interstate Commerce Commission Hears
Arguments frr Lower Charges.
Washington, July 9.— The railroad com
panies having presented an argument in op
position to the contemplated order of the
Interstate Commerce Commission reduc
ing freight rates on grain shipments in the
West, on the ground of want of jurisdic
tion, the commission to-day heard argu
ments from persons of the opinion that the
proposed reductions, and even greater,
should be ordered. There wereprosent the
following persons Interested in the matter:
T. H. LamUertson of Lincoln, Nebr., repre
senting the State and the State Farmers'
Alliance; E. F. Dousman, member of the
Chicago Board of Trade, and George T. An
thony and James Humphrey of Kansas, and
the Railroad Commissioners of lowa. Dous
man made the opening argument.
THE LION'S SHARE.
A Growl in the Home Committee on an Ap-
propriation for Oakland.
Washington, July 9.— The House Com
mittee on Public Buildings and Grounds
met this morning, and, after considerable
wrangling, finally agreed to report favor
ably the Senate bill for a public building at
Oakland, Cal., to cost S"o0.000. Some of
the members of the committee believe that
California is getting the lion's share of ap
propriations for public buildings, and there
was considerable bad temper displayed to
day. One of the Republicans loudly com
plained that Clunie, a Democratic member,
received more favor than some of the Re
publican members of the committee. The
Oakland bill is on the calendar, at any rate,
and Is likely to pass before adjournment.
Chicago Has Over One Million Inhabitants.
Baltimore ard St. Lenta.
; Washington, July 9. — A rough official
count of the population of St. Louis by the
Census Office was; completed to-day. It
shows the city population to be 448,124.
This . is in excess about 12,000 over the esti
mate made by the local supervisor.
Baltimore's population is something over
433,000. The Chicago Census Supervisor
sent bis returns to Washington to-day. He
says now that Chicago's population is not
less than 1,100,000. t
To Refrain From Votirg.

Return of President Mone from Oregon.
Selna's Conduct to be Officially
Investigated— Eastern Games.
John J. Mone, President of the California
Base-ball League, returned to this city
yesterday morning from the north. He had
been away nine day-, and during that time
visited the four towns represented in the
Northern Pacific League. The exact object
of his trip could not be learned, Mr. Mone
insisting he had been traveling merely for
pleasure and that base-ball business had
nothing to do with his departure. One fact
lenjiug color to the impression that Mr.
Mono had a few schemes on hand was his
constant presence with Henry Harris dur
ing his entire stay in the webfoot region.
"When I arrived in Poriland," said the
league President yesterday, "1 was disap
pointed to find that Harris was in Tacoma.
I left for the latter place as soon as possi
ble, and accompanied the Portland team to
Spokane Falls, Seattle and back to the burg
on the Willamette Kiver. One of the amus
ing features of the trip was the anxiety of
the newspaper men to ascertain the object
of my visit. A rumor preceded me that I
intended to Induce Harris to return here,
and when I set fool in Portland reports
were flying about regarding my proposed
purchase of the best men in the league. 1
was buttonholed at every corner, roused
out of bed at all hours of the night and in
terrogated until 1 was tired; but I could
not convince the people that 1 did not have
evil designs on their clubs. I got into Ta
coma , about, the time Earl, the Eastern
catcher, was expected, and the cranks im
agined I intended to steal him. I was in
formed afterward that a close watch was
put ou my movements until 1 left town.
"How does the Northern Pacific compare
with the California League? The teams
up there would give our clubs a hard battle.
They are equal In everything but batting to
California players. Ido not desire to con
vey the impression that they are weak hit
ters as a class. There are some very heavy
baiters in the clubs and the pitchers are
above the average. The teams appear to
be making money, and even at Portland,
when the home ciub is iv last place, the at
tendance is heavy. Seattle has the finest
grounds on tlie Coast aud the stands are
handsome structures. Tacoma has also
good grounds, but the Spokane Falls Park
is not properly laid out. Portland's grounds
are In fair condition."
"Was there any talk of a consolidation of
the California and Northern leagues?"
"The subject was discussed in a general
way, but nothing definite was arrived at.
The association there is yet in an experi
mental stage, and it would not be good pol
icy to enter into such an agreement just
now. A plan was also proposed to have
the leading clubs of both leagues play a
series of games ut the end of the season
for the championship of the Pacific Coast,
but the scheme is still in un embryotic
"Henry Harris," continued Mr. Mone,
"will not leave Portland uutil the close of
the season. He likes the country and the
people up there. He is endeavoring to
strengthen the team, but good ball-players
are too difficult to secure for that place.
Borchers is again pitching and is behaving
himself. I saw him pitch two games and
he was in fine form. The crack batter of
the league, Turner of Spokane Falls,
struck out twice before him. Harris has
one of the best shortstops on the Coast.
His name is Hassamer. He covers much
territory, goes after everything, and while
he errs occasionally plays good ball all the
lime. Ben Young and McCue are the um
pires. The former seems to satisfy every
one, but McCue, who is a relative of 'Peek
a-boo' Veacb, is unpopular and I think
has been released within the past few days.
"Every treated me very nicely on the
trip," said Mr. Mone in conclusion, "and
they all were well posted on the affairs of
our league. I saw a great deal of the coun
try, spending all my time riding about the
Charley Gagus has consented to umpire
for the local league until another referee is
engaged. He will officiate in the games of
this week. President Moiie has entered into
negotiations with Umpire McLaughlin of
the International League with a view of
bringing him out here.
Whitehead could not secure bis release
from Denver, as the man who was expected
to fill his place has fallen ill. Finn is now
endeavoring to get Tommy Forster, short
stop and manager of the Hartford team.
Should Forster be engaged Ebright will be
placed at third base. Finn is also trying to
sign Pitcher Jack Fanning, late of the Kan
sas City Club.

held next Saturday night to settle the
claims of San Francisco and Sacramento
regarding Koscoe Coughlio. The case of

During the afternoon there were seven
meetings of educational departments in
various parts of the city. The Department
of Music and Education met in the People's
Church, being presided over by Herbert
Griggs of Denver, whose opening addresa
was a comparison between old and new
methods of teaching music, in which he
strongly urged making a musical atmos
phere in the school and having all things
harmonious, in that way faster advancing
the pupil. Other papers were read.
Kindergarten work was considered at the
First M.E. Church.
Professor Irwin Shepard of Minnesota
thought every primary teacher should be
taught in a kindergarten.
Secondary education was the topic at the
mouth Congregational Church. A paper
on the high school as a fitting school was
read by A. F. Bcchdolt of Minnesota, who
thought high schools too superficial.
Fifty colleges were represented at the
meeting of the higher education depart
ment at the First Baptist Church and three
papers were discussed. President Blan
chard of Wheaton College, Illinois, took
up the query, "What have the people
to ask of the college?" and con
cluded that they could ask colleee men
to become more of leaders in affairs even
than they now are. President Stetson of
Dcs Moines College considered the question
of "Shorter college courses to meet a pop
ular demand," and his position, as well as
that of those who followed on the same
subject, was strongly against the innova

President in the veto says: "There is no
objection that 1 know of either on the cart

due to the purchasers." The President, how
ever, objects to the provision "that all

Nebraska as fully paid for and the patents
