NEW M ETHO D 0 Fs H ARING
STATE SCHOOL FUND CASH
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN1. March 31. (Speclal.)-State
Treasurer George Hall will advocate a
(hdnge in the methods of sending out
chool apportionments from that which
has been practiced for many years.
At the present time the apportionment
Is made semi-annually. Mr. Hall believes
that the apportionment should be made
whenever there Is $100,000 for distribution
In the school fund. As the amount runs
from $700,000 to JSW.tJfO each year thla
will make from seven to eight distribu
tions of tne fund and will save many of
the poorer districts from being corripelled
to Issue warrants and pay interest on
hem because of lack of funds.
Mr. Hall is of the opinion that thla
:n be done without very much extra
work because in the distribution of the
1100,000 it will be known each time the
ixact amount to go to each district, as
,t is made on the school census each

Friends Aroused to Insistence that
' He Shall Accept the Nomi
nation. NEBRASKANS TO WRITE IN NAME
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March 31. -(Special. )-That
there is a decided and growing sentiment
favorable to the nomination of Charles
E. Hughes of New York for president on
the republican ticket Is evidenced by re
ports from people coming to Lincoln from
different parts of the state.
That the disappointment over his with
drawal as a candidate before the primar
ies in this state has worn off and this has
only had the effect of arousing his friends
to Insistence, Is also apparent.
I'eoplo in Lincoln and out In the state
who heard him when he visited Nebraska
a few years ago, cannot easily get away
from the belief Inspired at that time that
Hughes was presidential timber and a
man close to the people. Consequently
they have faith that If a positive de
mand la made for Judge Hughes he will
not refuse to accept a nomination.
People out In the state seem deter
mined to vote for him anyhow and It Is
probable that that little old lead pencil
will be much In evidence when Mr. Voter
goes to the booth on April Id, next.
A grest many people are convinced that
when the national republican convention
meets it will rot waste much time on pre
liminary skirmishes and that when It Is
seen that none of the favorite son candl
dates stands any show that there will
be a rush for the Hughes band wagon
and his nomination will be so unanimous
that he cannot refuse to serve.
Going on this proposition It Is evident
there will be much writing In of the name
of Hughes on the presidential ballot, and
he is likely to carry the preference vote
of the state. At least this Is the conclu
slon of the men who come to the capital
from different portions of Nebraska.
