State- Could Srrnrr Smile nt Much
I,ra from Any Agency
(From a 8t&ft Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Dec. 7.-(Spcial.) With the
Increase In the cost of living tho rental
on typewriters seems to have more than
Kept a corresponding pace, according to
a meeting of tho State Board of Public
Lands and Buildings held yesterday.
Jand Commissioner Cowlos, the watch
nog of tho state, presented a, resolution
Just at tht close of the session calling
upon Superintendent C. B. Manual ot
the Boy's Industrial school at Kearney
to reimburse tho stato in the amount
f five dollars a month for a typewriter
ovned by himself and rented to hla
uenographer for use at the Institution.
According to Mr. Cowles, the steno
nrapher was required to draw her
voucher for $15 a month and then pay
air. Manual back tho five dollars above
:r salary of $10 for tho use of the
iliaclvlne, M. Cowles says that all
kinds of typewriters can be rented for
nbout half what the stato paid for tho
una of tho Manuel typewriter, and he
thought that there was no call to list
Iho machine In tho Kerns listed in the
' high cost of living" catalogue. After
considerable discussion the board votod
to oak Mr. Manuel to put it back.
Superintendent Manuel was chairman
nf the populist state committee during the
campaign when A. C. Shallenberger was
the democratic candidate for governor
against tho republican governor, George
K Sheldon, renominated" for re-election,
engineered a deal wheroby the populists
fused with the democrats and assisted in
the defeat of a republican governor. As
a reward for his able leadership he was
appointed superintendent of tho Kearney
As tho term of Governor Shallenberger
drew to a close and he wa3 renominated
for governor by tho democratic party,
Superintendent Manuel showed his fine
Italian hand In a political way by pulling
off a deal that ended In tho populist com
mittee of the stato endorsing C. H. Ald
rloh. the republican candidate, for the
governorship. Mr. Aldrlch was elected
and Mr. Manuel was again rewarded and
showed his appreciation during tho late
campaign by trying to again get tho pop
ulist endorsement for Governor Aldrlch.
However, he was unsuccessful and the
indorsement went to tho democratic can
didate, Mix Morehead, and as the latter
won out the chances for Mr. Manuel re
taining his Job do not seem to bo good.
However, Mr. Manuel owns, a papor at
St. Paul, and when he has turned over
the institution to his successor ho will
not be out of a Job, but can hie himself
back to the print shop and with tho type
writer grind out a story of "How I
Stacked tho Cards Wrong and Lost Out."

A'cw Hnnril of Control Amendment

Inn In Nclirnaka.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Dec. 7. (Speolal.)-Tiiat
Omaha and Lincoln may yet be Joined
by an interurban railwa ywas evidenced
by a meeting held in Havelock last night
In which lYesldent W. K. Sharp and
other officials of the Lincoln Traction
company m"t with the cltliens of the
shop town and asked for a franchise for
the "Citizens Interurban railway"
through that town. Mr. Sharp told the
citizens of Havelock that It was the In
tention 'of the company aa soon as the
Havelock line was laid to continue the
lino to Omaha.
Both nt Omaha and IJncoln, con
nections wilt be mado with the local
companies of those cities and transfers
Issued to all parts of tho cities.
According to Iresldent Sharp, the
decision to build the new lino to Omaha
comon from Indication that the Loup
river power project In which he Is In
terested will bo developed.
People of Lincoln have been greatly
disappointed for years that the old
Omaha. Lincoln & Beatrice Interurhun
road was not built and had always hoped
mat as tho line had beon graded, tho
track might be laid. Whethnr thU will
ever be done now that Indications point
to competing road. Is a matter of con
jecture. Tho Omaha. Lincoln & Beatrice
and tho Lincoln Traction company have
beon at war for some months, and have
been fighting for territory, but no one
will venture a guesa as to whether tho
activity of the Sharp Interests to Uulld
to Omaha will wako up the others and
cuuso them to get busy.
Power of Hoard of Control. '
A proposition before tho board of pub
lic lands and biillrilnrn nt h tvi..i
tlmo Is whether tho constitutional amend
ment creating a board of control usurps
the duties of tho board of nnKII
and buildings and thus puts It out of
Dusiness. Tho amendment provides that
tho board of control shall havo charge
of tho public Institutions of the state,
which have heretofore been looked after
by tho board of public lands and build
ings, and reads aa follows:
The board of commissioners shall have
run power to manage, control and gov
ern, subject only to such limitations as
"hall bo established by law, tho Btate
soldiers homed, hospitals for the Insane,
Institute for the deaf. Institute for tho
blind. Industrial schools. Institute for
feeble-minded children. Nebraska Indus
trial home, Orthopedic hospital, tho state
penitentiary and all charitable, reforma
tory and penal Institutions that shall be
by law established and maintained by the
state of Nebraska.
The proposition before the board Is
whether It was the intent of tho amend
ment to do away with the board of pub
lia lands and bulldlngst, or Just take
away away from their control a portion
of their work. It will be noted that the
above' section of tho amendment does not
Includo the state houso or any other
building owned by tho state, nor does It
refer In any way to tho public school
lands of the state, which are-" also under
the control $t tiio board bf public lands
and building's. )
It is t?ie opinion of some of tho mem
bers of tho board ot public lands and
buildings that It was the Intention of
the f miners of tho amendment to do
away with the board and turn every
thing over to the board of control. Tho
way the amendment leaves It now there
will be practically two boards to- conrol
tho property of the stato and may result

has been the custom of the pardoning
board to recommend pardon or parole !n
cases where the convict cannot live long

or Infectious nature, as long as friends
