GOVERNOR SAVAGE'S VISIT.
Ho Explains Ruling In Regard to Fam
ilies of Stnto Employes.
i'roni Tumidity's Dully.
After inspecting ulT.ilrs at the Norfolk -
folk hospital for the Insane yesterday
Governor K/.ru P. Suvugo came to the
city and was the guest of his daughter ,
MrH. 0. M. Janes , over night. During
the evening an informal reception was
hold at the otllco rooms of Messrs.
BarnoH & Tyler in the Mast block and
ho wus mot there by u number of busi
ness men and politicians. Ho returned
to Lincoln on the early train this morn
The governor stated last evening , con
cerning the recent ruling that the
families of employes at state institu
tions are not to live at the institutions ,
that it is probable that the order will bo
modified so tlmt the fumillos may con-
in no to reside at the institutions by
paying their board to the stuto , at a
rate proportionate to the cost of main
taining the institutions. The governor
gave as the reason for the now order
that at some of the state institutions
the free board privilege had been shame
fully abused in the past , one instance
being related of an employe who not
only tried to huve the state keep his own
family but several of his relatives. If
a man works for a private firm or outer *
prise he expects to provide for the main
tenance of his family out of his salary ,
and the governor noes no reason why u
person working for the stuto should be
any bettor treated. The law provides
that certain employes shall bo paid u
certain amount and board , but says
nothing about boarding their families ,
hence the governor believes that in
justice to the tax payers no extra per
sons should bo bourded at public ex

The Pacillo hotel will bo reopened to
the public in nil its branches on Friday ,
after having boon closed but little more
than two weeks the actual date of clos

ered that there is enough trade iu sight
to warrant the resumption of business.
Manager Patterson will continue to con
duct the hotel and II. A. Molor , for
merly chief engineer at the Norfolk hos

The eating department has been the

mout will therefore plnco the hotel on

The spelling contest announced by
Supt. Cruui came off at the High school
building last evening. Only thirty-five
teachers could bo induced to take part
in it. This is taken as evidence of the
fact that a large proportion of the
teachers are fearful of their ability iu
this subject. A general effort is being
put forth to improve the work in this
hue. The Eighth grade examinations
daring the past three years by Supt.
Cruui have done much to cause the ex-
poudituro of more effort on spoiling and
a correspoudeuing improvement. The
Eighth grade pupils of the county aver
aged 5' ) iu the first examination and 83
In the last. That Is , the pupils three
years ago spelled on the average 59
words out of a 100 and last year they
spelled 8 ! ) words out of a 100.
In the contest last evening 20 of the
35 made grades above 75. Of these six
are young teachers of but ono or two
years' experience , six are young people
expecting to teach for the first time this
year and eight teachers of more than
two years' experience. Of the IE fall
ing below 75 , eight were teachers of
more thau two years' experience and
seven of less than two years , or no ex
poriouco , the test showing Jthat the
younger teuuhers in both classes hold
the advantage over the older ones ,
which goes to show tlmt improvement is
being imulo in this work.
Miss Mary O. Crooks of Meadow
Grove took highest lionois in the con
test. She bpt-llod all the words pro
nounced and reci'lvod a grade of 100

Rape Case at Madison.
Wednesday morning the citizens of
this city were surprised and shocked to
learn that an assault with attempt to
commit a rape had boon committed by
Warner Sutherland about half past
nine Tuesday evening. The assault
was made upon Bertha Rowlott , a
young lady seventeen years of age , of
excellent reputation and unblemished
character. The assault was of a most
ilotprmiuod aud brutal character , and
Sutherland was only prevented from
accomplishing his purpose from the
fact that the cries of the young lady
brought assistance and caused Suther
land to take flight. It is supposed that
Sutherland escaped by riding out of
town on horseback and up to this time
bus not boon apprehended. Miss Ber
tha Rowlett , the youug lady in ques-
tiou , is the daughter of a widowed
mother , and has been a resident of this
city for a number of years. Sutherland
cauio litre about a year ago and has
been employed in his father's barn
When the facts of the assault became
known , great indignation was expressed
by the citizens and a determined effort
will bo made to apprehend Sutherland
aud bring him to justice Madisou Star.

The hospitality of smaller places 1
rare If not unknown In New York.
Hospitality there Is different and tend *
to be swamped by numbers and even
chilled Into an apparent Indifference
that is really compelled by clrcum
stances. Often It makes a brave fight
nnd never wholly gives up , but It Is a
struggle against great odds. Not sel
dom It happens tlmt the enormous ag >
gravation of social and Intellectual op
portunities that confronts country people
ple who come to live In New York so
discourages them tlmt they end iu liv
ing narrower lives iu the great city
and seeing fewer people than iu the
smaller town from which they came.
And if It does not discourage them It
is apt to drive them too hard. A New
Yorker who already had a house in
town nnd another in the country near
by excused himself for building a third
In New Hampshire by saying : "In
town or nour town I never get away
from engagements. I want a place
where I can have some leisure , and
leisure to a New Yorker means , of
course , a chance to do some work. "

A Missouri paper says that Senator
Cockrell keeps In closer touch with the
people of his state than any other man
In the senate. One of his habits , ac
cording to capital gossip , Is to read In
the senate the name of every con

Other senators content themselves
with presenting petitions In an Indefi

fashion they are noted In The Congres

there are the names of his constitu

The Oitkdale Sentinel says that the

Humphrey's defeat yesterday by the
Norfolk team was largely the result of
uperior field work. Their pitcher put
up a pretty good game in that there
were 11 strike outs and not a base on
bulls , but the Norfolk boys hit him
> retty regularly and he was not sup-
> orted by the field , which made several
costly errors. Plum gave but few hits
and when one was made it was usually
within reach of the fielders and every
position was well fielded. The feature
of the game was a running catch in the
fifth by Hoar. There was a fair attend
ance at the game aud considerable en-
; husiasui was shown.
