Lincoln Star : The special commit
tee appointed by Speaker Pool brought
Into tlie house Saturday a favorable
report on the proposed purchase of the
Wayne normal school. The commit
tee reported that the place was worth
$105,000 and that It was being offered
to the state for $90.000. The bill ap
propriating this money was llrst re
ferred to the committee on univer
sities and normal schools. This com
mittee decided to Indefinitely post
pone the bill. The members from the
northeast part of the state , with a
few exceptions , were eager for the
purchase of the school anil and the
report of the committee riles them.
Case , chairman of the university com
mittee , said that the present pfo-
motors of the Wayne normal school
bad offered to pay the expenses of the
university committee to and from
Wayne if it would only Moat up that
way and see what the school was
worth. Case and his committee didn't
care to take the trip at the expense
of the interested parties. Thereupon
the Wayne promoters and the mem
bers from the northeastern part of the
state got busy and secured the seine-
lion of a special committee of seven
members. These members , appointed
at the reiiuest of those who wanted
the school to be purchased by the
state , brought In a favorable report.
The Institution now has about 700
students enrolled. U Is urged In favor
of the purchase of the college that Hie
school will close this year If the state
does not back It.

All of the pastors were present at

however , Is not taken as Indicating
that they will control the city conven

Rounds of Tame Fighting.
New York , March 13. Joe Cans ,
former lightweight champion of the
world , easily defeated Jabez White ,
the English lightweight champion , in
a ten-round bout at the National
Athletic club last night. It was a
tame exhibition and the big crowd
was disappointed , as the men wore
slow and lacked force behind many of
White used his left cleverly in the
first two rounds , but In the third he
changed bis tactics , relylnc on his ;
right. Two rounds later the cause of
this shift was apparent. White had
broken his left arm some time ago In
England and' ho hurt It early lu the
third round last night. i
White was knocked down once la

the boll saved him by one second , and
once in the eighth.
Gans was far from being the Cans
of even two years ago. He missed several - ' |
oral blows , misjudging distance , and.
failed to take advantage of many op

Civic Forum. The meeting was to dis
cuss "Hileet of Direct Primary Nomi

Senator La Follotto of Wisconsin , who
Is an ardent advocate of the plan. Hu
said In part : "Senator Depuw was
wrong when ho called the direct pri
mary law a leap In the dark. Twenty-
Boven states now have the law In ono
foVm or another. It is true that no
state has obtained a perfect direct
primary law. In Wisconsin wo have
found that the provision which allows
a candidate to secure a nomination on
a plurality rather than on a majority
makes It possible under certain cir
cumstances lor a compact and well
organized nuu-hluo minority to domin
