SINGLE COPr 3TIYE CENTS. i-X KENRICK IS NOT DEPOSED Archbishop Kain Simply Appointed Ooad- jntor with Greatly Enlarged Powers , WRITTEN DECREE ENROUTE BY MAIL Announcement nt St. Louis limed Upon What tlio Vutlcun Terms nn Unfor tunate MUconitrnctlou of a Cable Ulipntch from Komo. HOMI $ , Juno 4. It U stated at Ihe Vatican that the brief cablegram from St. Louis an nouncing the deposition of Archbishop Kcn rick and the nomination In Ma stead of Arch' bishop Kaln as successor Is duo to an unfortunate - fortunate misapprehension , ot a cable frorr Homo which summarized the action taken b } the congregation of the propoganda. Tin V y written decree was mailed to the Unltct T States scvcrcal days ago and gives In full thi contemplated changes. It docs not depose Archbishop Kcnrlck from his present title 01 position nor docs It appoint Archbishop Kal : as his successor. Such action could havi been taken only through a papal bull. The present action Is a decree of the con gregatlon made for the purpose of nsslstlni in the management unJ administration of thi church property ot the archdiocese. Ha < the archbishop been relieved ho would havi been given a new title as arch bUhop of a suppressed dloccso Ii the far cast In order that the chang would entail no sacrifice of dignity or sta tton. Hut the decree makes no change li his title and leaves him In possession of hi present title as archbishop of St. Louis. I defines exactly and clearly the position o Archbishop Kaln as coadjutor , making mor * definite the powers conferred -upon htm , r i year ago. It does not , however , make hln the successor of Archbishop Kenrlck , bu gives him such strong powers as coadjuto that ho wll bo able to carry on the laborlou work of managing the church property an affairs as though ho were archbishop In nam or fact. This will bring no deposition o removal ot the venerable head of the arch diocese. It Is regretted that the few word sent by cable summartzng the full decrc should have been misconstrued. The dc crco was mailed to Archbishop Knln an would not have reached him until after th announcement made last Sunday based o tlio cable. HOW THE MISTAKE OCCURRED. ST. LOUIS , Juno 4. The cablegram froi Rome puts quite n different face on th supposed removal of Archbishop Kcnrlck , a narrated yesterday. There has been n mil talto somewhere , nnd the way It came abet Is like this : When proceedings were recent ! Instituted In the local courts In behalf e prominent Catholics , lay nnd clerical , asl Ing 'tor the removal of Archbishop Kenrlc from his trusteeship In the church propert of the St. Louis diocese , Archbishop Kal took similar action In _ the ecclesiastic : courts. Ho sent to the propaganda a pet tlon setting forth the same condition ( facts narrated In the prayer of the pet tloners In the local courts. IIo furtlu asked that the old archbishop bo remove and that ho be appointed archbishop of S Louis In his stead. There was n reason for this dual pn cedure. The focal legal proceedings woi Instituted to determine , first , that Arcl bishop Kcnrlck held church property I the dloccso of Missouri an a trust. Sccon that ho was mentally Incapacitated fro administering this trust. Third , that a no trustee bo appointed. The hitch cnmo In on the last poln While Archbishop Knln was .merely coai Jutor archbishop of St. Louis , even thoup appointed with the right of succession , 1 had no standing In court over his appoln ment ns successor In the trust held by tl old nrchblshop , which. In virtue of his p Billon , was optional with the court. ' fact , If the Judge saw fit ho might ha' created n 'fat Job for some friend , not nece sarlly a Catholic , nnd appointed him servo ns trustee until Archbishop Kcnrlcli successor ns archbishop of St. Louis w appointed by Komo. The point was for seen , and Archbishop Knln petitioned Ron to appoint him bishop of St. Louis. On May 2 ho received a brief cablegra from the propaganda stating that his poi tlon had been received and favorably act upon. Ho took this to mean that his r quest hnd been complied with. Tlll\lCti TltK MUST Mrv. William Ilerklfe of tlio Imlh Agent , on thn llotorvntlon Trotililr. WASHINGTON , Juno 4. ( Spcclnl Tel Rrnm. ) Mrs. William H.

The fact that the troops at Oma are so near the reservation Is the prlncli reason why the War department refused 7 tend troops to the reservation. Mrs. Beck &ays : "I hnve hnd a heart with the secretary of the Interior , and ho undoubtedly In hearty accord with Captc Heck and his course In the trouble on t reservation. Whatever the agent says recommends will most likely bo adopted the department. I do not think the all ment of the lands on the reservation will made for some tlmo to come.

CHICAGO , June 4. The Investigation of the officers of the old Whisky trust before William Dooth , master In chancery of the United States court , ended In a draw today , and the question of the subject matter to bo Investigated goes back to Judge Showalter on a reference. The countel of tlie receiver and the reorganization committee , and the master In chancery maintained that the order granted full power and authority to Investi gate anything appertaining to the business of the old trust. The counsel for the officers of the old trust held that the Investigation was limited to books , papers and records of the company supposed to bo or which had been In the possession ot the officers ; that where the receiver was now In posses sion ot nny such data the Investigation was limited to any particular transaction appear ing therein. During the hearing President Grecnhut was put on the gridiron of cross-examination and through direct question and tnuedno , touching the character of this or that ot his acts , was held near the flro until lie flared up and scorched the cross-examining lawyer In turn. A number of Mr , Ureenhut's tele grams wcro also produced , and he was called on to mpko explanations In regard to them , ' Whllo' the Investigation was In progress for two hours , over half of the time was taken up by asking Messrs. Greenhut nnd Hennessey questions , to bo mot by the prompt objection of Mr. Hurry , the mastei responding , "I direct the witness to answer the questions , " nnd the witness relortlng "I decline by advice of my counssl. " All questions relating to the possession of the books and records of the trust wcro per mitted to bo answered , but when Messrs Iloysen nnd Moran attempted to ask n ques. tlon that might bring out Information re. spectlng the alleged criminal acts of tin officers of the trust , they were met by th < peremptory refusal to answer. The effort ! of Attorney Mayor , representing the new organization , who conducted the examlnatlor of Mr. Greenhut , seemed directed to having the ex-president of the trust disclose hli use of tlio trust's funds In private specula tlons. To this course of Investigation Mr Hurry , attorney for the old organization entered an emphatic protest , supplementec by Mr. Walker , who declared that the re cclver had alleged nil thcso acts In n bit fl ed in the court , nnd It was not contem plated under the order of the court that tin receiver should sccuro from Messrs. Green hut and the others Information to be usei In the prosecution of that suit. JRAI.VUXl' LKAltH TO A. ClllMI KvaniivUlo Mnn KIIU ill * Child nnil I.I to nil j Cut * IIU Wife to I'locei.

OLNEY TO SUCCEED GRESIIAH Apparently Well Founded Rumor to that Effect Oomes from Washington. DICKINSON MAY BE ATTORNEY GENERAL Some Doubt , However , Kxpre9cil Whether the Michigan Man Would Accept u Cabinet I'oslllon. WASHINGTON , , Juno 4. There Is no longer any reasonable doubt but that the presi dent has fully determined to ask Attorney General Olney to accept the State depart ment portfolio. While this Is an undoubted fact , It Is also certain that the president has not even Intimated to Mr. Olncy that this was his purpose. To other members of his cabinet , however , It Is learned that he has stated In substance that ho should ask Mr. Olncy to accept the position , nnd that ho was delaying the public anounccment In order that ho might at the same time name a suc cessor to Mr. 'Olncy as attorney general. Persons In a position to know what the pres ident's purposes are anticipate an early an nouncement of Mr.f01ney's appointment nnd probably that of hls'successor. Senator Gray's visit to the white house was undoubtedly In response to a telegram from the president , who , It Is learned , would not hesltato to offer Mr. Gray a place In his cab inet were It not for the fact that his retire ment from the senate would almost certainly result In the election of a republican as his successor. It Is thought that up to this time , the presi dent has not definitely decided upon Mr. 01- ney's successor. A long list ot names are being discussed , but everything In that con nection Is purely speculative. Ex-Postmaster General Dickinson , It Is said , would be very likely of appointment If he would accept. A possibility Is Mr. Holmes Cdnrad of Virginia , the present solicitor general. He has the rep utation of being a man of brilliant legal at- talnm'iits and enjoys tha high regard of the members of the Uulted States supreme court , The fact that Mr. Conrad comes from Vlr glnla , however , may operate against his ap pointment , but In case he Is selected , It 1 ; believed that Mr. Uhl , the present asslstanl secretary of state , would be a candidate foi the solicitor generalship. Mr. Uhl was a can' dldntc for this position at one time , and it 1 : believed that the change would be most agree able to htm. DETROIT , Mich. , June 4. Upon rccolp of the Washington dispatch containing tin rumor that Don M. Dickinson would bo ten dered the office of attorney general of tin United Sates , an Associated press reportc showed the dispatch to Mr. Dickinson , am asked as ts whether ho had received an ; Intimation of that character. "Is it secretary of state or attorney gen eral this tlmo ? " queried the postmaster general oral Inquisitively. After reading the dispatch Mr. Dlcklnsoi replied : "I really cannot discuss these ru mors In any way. Not because I do no wish to give the news should I have any but , as you nro nwnre , my relations ar somewhat peculiar. " Mr. Dickinson was then asked whethe ho would not state nt this tlmo what h would do In case a position In the cablno were again tendered him. "No , I could no say as to that , " he replied. "I cannot dls cuss these matters In any way. " H Is regarded hero ns by no means Im probable that Mr. Dickinson would accep the legal portfolio If tendered , and his we ! known Intimate relations with the preslden renders It not unlikely that he has nlread been consulted with reference to filling th vacancy In the cabinet.

COLUMBUS , June 4. The following wns Issued from the rooms ot t the democratic stale executive committed * tbli evening : "To the Democrats of Ohio : From the vast number of letters received by this com mittee from all parts of the state urging the calling of th'e democratic state conven tion , the Impression seems to prevail with a large number that thli committee has au thority to name the lime and place for the holding of the stale convection. This , how ever , Is nol the case. Tnc authority to Issue a call for the assembling of the convention Is vested In the state central committee , and Iho calling of lhat committee together for the purpose of naming thp date nnd place rests with the chairman of the stale cenlral committee , Mr. M. A. Smallcy of Upper Sardusky. "The state executive committee , from the Information It has received , believes thai Iho rank and flic of Iho party of the state desire thnl the state convention should bo assembled nt once , nnd wo have requested and urged Mr. Smalley to call the centr.il committee together. Wo hove done this , not only because the democracy of the state seems to demand It and that we believe that their will should bo obeyed , but have nlso urged It becnuse wo know that the executive committee lately chosen for Iho coming year musl have sufficient tlmo In which to com plete a thorough organization throughout the state and arrange for an active speaking campaign. Your cxecullvo commltleo must have time In , which this can be done If you expect success. The republicans are al ready In the field. Why "should not the democracy bo thcro alsoT , The undersigned know of no reason , other than that Senator Calvin S. Brlce , who apparently controls the chnlrman of the state central committee , will not permit It. "The reason for thl Is perfectly apparent. Senator Brlce , realizing thai he Is nol In harmony with the great majority ot Ihe Ohio democrats upon the money question , wants tlmo In which ho can by political manlpjla- tlon and machinery control , If possible , the dcc'aratlon ' the democracy of the state will make upon this Issue In the conven tion. He seems to bo afraid "to let the dem ocrats of the state meet when they so desire and express their Independent views. How successfully a political machine may control a convention nnd misrepresent a political party Is thoroughly demonstrated at the laic republican convention at Zanesvllle. "Democrats should be on their guard 01 their convention will bo controlled In the same way. Judging from the Inforinotlor received by the officer ? of , ' the executive committee , wo are led to ) believe at leasl four-fifths of the democratic , party of Ohlt are In favor of readopllng tljo plank of lasl year , ndvocnllng the free coinage .of goli and silver nt the ratio of 1C to 1 , and w further believe that they nh uld be per nitted to meet In convention ! and so ex ress themselves If such Is their will , fret rom Inlerfercnce from leaders on ellher sld < f this question. After thp democracy Ir onventlon assembled has spoken all mus bide the result. Senator Brlce knows wha Ills result will bo If the democrats of thi tate are permitted to frasly and untram ncled In every way express their own views nd therefore he will continue to do all In hi : ewer to prevent the convention from belnj , eld until he Is ready.

BRADFORD , Pa , , Juno 4. Elk county has experienced a number of destructive forest fires , but those of Sunday and yesterday surpass them all. The fire at Russell City last night was one thai drove lorror to the hearts of the COO people who Inhabit the place. Al 10 o'clock a brisk wesl wind sprang up and fanned Iho burning under brush nnd hemlock Umber Into one solid mass of flre , covering a stretch of three miles In width. The people , who were about exhausted from fighting the flames for the past three days , were foccd to flee for their lives. The flames spread so rapidly that the people had to leave everything and run to the clearing two miles distant to High land corners. Women with children In their arms , shrieking and bemoaning their fate , ran and stumbled as they escaped from the flre. Many yfoincn fell exhausted and were trampled on , but reached high land In safety. Nothing U left ot the once bustling llttlo place. The lire Is still burning fiercely among the oil .wells. The Northern Oil company has twenty oil wells and a number of tanks burn ing nt this place now , and there la no abate ment to the fury ot Ihe flames. It Is im possible to estimate the loss. The woods leading lo Clark's mills are ono mass of flames on both sides of the road , nnd how the people who live along the road could have escaped Is beyond compre hension. There Is no communication of any description with this place and no news obtainable from there , but there Is no doubt of everything having been burned In the path ot the flre , ns lucre wns no prolecllon of nny kind. EVERYBODY FIGHTING FIRE. Every available man Is out fighting flro and there are not half enough. There Is flro In every direction and all efforts to check Its progress seem futile. Coon Run , three miles from Russell City , which was wiped out yesterday afternoon , was entirely obliterated from the face ot Ihe earth nnd nothing remnlns to show that there was ever such n plnce ns Coon Run. The place consisted of twenty-seven buildings , a pump station , schoolhouse and saw mill. A. B. Fowler , superlnlendent of the Northern com pany , says whllo ho and his men were nt work "backfiring" n stiff bre ze from the west came up like magic nnd In less time Ihnn It takes to tell It the fire wns upon icm. They rnn to the town and aroused IB people to flco for their lives. Men , omen nnd children made a wild race for tie railway Irack , n dlstnnco of flvo miles , hlle the flames played havoc with all their elonglngs , and the Northern company losl orty oil wells at this place and a large num- er of new rigs that hnd been built for new veils. About twenty-five tanks of oil were onsumed and lent energy to the flames , 'ho Elk Oil company Is also a heavy loser. The pipe lines lost both their pump ( Italians vlth a quantity of crude oil. The loss will e very great. No estimates can be made intll Ihe flre abalcs. " -The flre al Wesl Kane , which Ihrealened ho destruction of thai place , Is now under ontrol. The damage done was the burning f nine oil well rigs owned by the Griffith state , ono engine house and ono dwelling louse. The flre reported at Knapp's creek s still raging and has done a Irago amount f damage. The flre has spread to Bell's amp and thlrly-flvo oil wells are now on ro. Reports from Duke Center state that the ntlre valley Is on flre , and the loss to oil nd lumber men will bs Immense. Kansas Branch , Rlxford , Davis City , Summit City , ) allas City , Oil Valley , Limestone , State jlne , Derrick City , and Red Rock are nil In t , and unless rain falls soon there Is nc elllng what the result will be. The sky Is lark with smoke and the mountains are In- Islblo on all sides , and the heat Is Intense , -lot an able man can be found , and calls or men come from every direction. Mer are still fighting the flre at Degolla , and up- mrently have It under control. Nothing has > een learned from West Branch , where brisk fire Is burning. Everything at Sugai tun , Including saw mills and dwellings , were lurned , and nothing remains ot the place. The fire at Brookston Is still burning fiercely , and thers Is no prospect of checking ho spread of the flames. It Is Impossible tc get men , and consequently the fires make apld headway.

SALT LAKE , Juno 4. ( Special Tele- ; ram. ) The Oregon Short Line and Utah Morthern receivership case was yesterday set for hearing before Chief Justice Mcrrltt on Thursday. The appointment ot John M. Kgnn ns receiver Is said to bo with the ap proval o Judge Mcrrltt , so far as It affects the Utah lines of the system proposed to be cut oft from the Union Pacific. It hns been generally assumed that ns the case wns de cided adversely to the Union Pacific , both In Portland and St. Paul , after full hearings , that the approval ot Egan's appointment by Judge Mcrrltt would follow as n mailer ot course. But the Indications are multiplying : hat the trial hero will be fully as earnest n jattlo ns wns fought In cither of the other courts. President Clark of the Union Pacific nr- rived from the east today. Senator Thurs- ton , Attorney Pierce , John M. ICgan and the American Loan nnd Trust company ntlorneys will nrrlvo from Portland tomorrow. The Union Pnclflo apparently Is preparing tc nako n Inst ditch struggle to hold the Utnh lines. If It should succeed Its victory would seriously handicap the Short Line people , as they would bo without connection with Utnh points nnd bo cut off from transcontinental : onnectlons , except the Union Pacific , via Granger nnd the Northern lines. The case will como up before Judge Merrill under con ditions different from these that existed nt Portland nnd St. Paul. New questions will bo raised , but Just what form they will take s not explained. The Utah Southern nnd 1U Utnh Southern extension lines , extending from Salt Lake to 'Frisco , about 200 miles , are covered by separata mortgages and the court will doubtless bo asked to protect these Interests. The lines south of this city arc losing properties , and It Is understood the court will bo asked to except them from Its order , giving to Egan only the profitable line' ] . President Clark was seen by The Bee cor respondent today , but declined to make any statement concerning the receivership pro > cccdlngs until ho had consulted with the ntlorneys. The American Loan nnd Trust company's application would bo opposed , but ho wns not prepared to stnto the grounds of opposition. Should the Union Pacific company fall Ir Its effort to prevent the granting of the pe tition of the American Loan and Trust com pany for the separation of the lines from the Union Pacific system , It will , It Is said make an effort to secure the appointment bj Judge Merrltt of a separate receiver foi Ihose lines , In which case there would be two receivers for the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern roads Egan and the np- polntee of the Utah court. It would bo advaiv tagcous to Salt Lake City to have n sep nrnte receiver appointed for the lines wlthlr this territory , for , ns a consequence , tin headquarters ot tlio Utah portion of tin system woukl undoubtedly bo cstabllshec here , whereas Is Is cxpectcl that Egan wll locate at Portland. What nctlon Judge Merrltt will take Is o course not known , but It Is believed that hi will not feel bound to coincide with thi other courts unless convinced that It Is t < the advantage ot nil parties to do so. I Is reporled that the bondholders of the Utal companies will stoutly oppose the conflrma tlon of Egan , and this opposition will brlni questions Into the case that have not beci passed upon elsewhere. It Is understooi also that the government Interest In prc bcivlng the value of the Union Pacific sys tern will cut more of a figure hero than 1 has In the other courts. Attorney Kellogg , representing the Amcr lean Loan and Trust company , mndo th positive statement tonight that Salt Lak would bo headquarters of the Short Lin system under Egan's receivership.

( IOT AFTER STATE PLUMS Lincoln Statesmen Eager to SacriCco Themselves to the Public- Service , ANY KND OF AN OFFICE WEIC ME Troubles of tlio Slnto Itnnktng lloant In Selecting Itecelrern for Defunct Ntnta Ilnnkii Wool of the Nevripnpcr Wrecked by W. .Morion Smith. LINCOLN , Jtmo 4. ( Special. ) The po- lltlcnt crop 1ms been wonderfully sympa thetic with the prospects of the more stable and profitable products of the state and th old Bang of barnacles , tnxcaters , cx-officlali and their next best frolmls have taken on now llfo nnd new hope during the growing weather of the past week. With business men and farmers feeling Jubilant over the prospects of a bountiful harvest , there Is no reason why the delectable coterrl of publlo leeches should not extend their tentacle ! with more hope and assurance. Of course , Just at present the publlo pas ture land does not afford very succulent pick ing , but 'ho barnacles arc wathclng for the tender shoots nnd nip them as soon as they appear nbovo the surface. In fact , some of tlio very hungry have been taking a mean advantage and have been rooting for plums that have barely sprouted. The best thing In sight Just nt present Is the receiverships . that are being provided for the banking In stitutions of the state that have succumbed to the llnanclal depression. With the limited picking nnd the limitless number of plckurs , thcro has been some tall hustling to tnako the provender come anything like going around. Thcso receiverships arc passed out by the State Banking Hoard , composed of the state treasurer , attorney general , stnto audi tor , and the men they have selected to manage - ago the afta'rs ' of embarrassed banks would cut n strange llgure In a monetary confer ence. At the first symptom of disease In a banking concern In the stuto the political browsers prick up their ears nnd there Is a stnmpcdo for the scene of action. SAMPLE OF THE TROUBLE. The difficulties encountered In fixing upon a receiver for the late Hank of Commerce of llroken How furnish a good example of the troubles that constantly bceet tlio over worked members of the State Hanking Board. About the ( line the local barnacles were waiting for the bank to ask for a re ceiver Hon. Gilbert L. Laws , ox-secretary ot state , ex-member of congress , ox-United States land commissioner and cx-a number of county olllccs In this and other states , was on n train Hearing the Nebraska line nnd coming through Kansas. Hon. Gilbert had been playing In hard luck. Ho had run the list of offices In Nebraska and had then , gone to Oklahoma to got In on the ground Moor and get at picking while It was fresh. Ho had got In the wrong push , had been branded as a maverick and frozen out of every political field ns fast ns he could break Into It. Ho was on his wny back to Nebraska. Just before reaching the state line n friend dropped In and asked Laws why he did not put In an application for the receivership of the Hank of Commerce at Hrokcn How. Suggestion was promptly fol lowed by notion , and the operator nt the next station , Just outside the border oC the prom ised land , had filed with him for transmis sion n telegraphic application for a position as receiver , by Laws , for the Hrokcn now bank. The next morning Hon. Augustine H. Humphreys , late commlslsoncr of public Innds nnd buildings , filed his application with the banking board for tlio position. Laws' claim was in ahead of him and the delay gave time for another applicant to get In line In the person of Frank Uoss , ex- deputy oil Inspector under Frank Hilton , who was out of meat and had to have some thing done for him. It is with the settlement of such vexed financial matters as these that the State Hanking Hoard Is being kept busy these days. The Inability of the stnto banking board to find fnt places for all of the barnacles has caused trouble that threatens to affect the board and other Rtato house employes. The men who hungered for placet ) nro mak ing , In their desperation , charges to the effect that at least two of the stuto house salary drawers nro revelling In snaps that are pretty rich during thcso depressed days , when ono Job with a pay attachment Is all that a reasonable barnacle ought to expect. Dick Townley , chief clerk of the state bankIng - Ing board , IB a retired naval officer , and draws $110 a month from the government of the United States , . In addition to his $1,500 yearly rake-off as a member of the banking board. Then there Is another man In a similar boat. Hrad Cook , a clerk In the office ot the commissioner of publlo lands and buildings , draws $1,500 a year from the etato of Nebraska and at the same time Is on the pension roll of the United States at $72.60 a month , the pen sion drawn for total disability. In times like these the hungry applicants feel that Colonel Townley and Colonel Cook ought to bo satisfied with ono pay day n month and give their follow sufferers a whack at the fodder trough. W. MORTON SMITH'S HOODOO. The affairs of the Lincoln Call nro very much In evidence In political , newspaper and business circles hero Just at present , and thereby'hangs n tale. When the guber natorial campaign was on last year I. M. Raymond of Lincoln was an aspirant for the nomination. IIo felt the need of an organ , and so Invested $3,000 In an Interest In the Dally Call with L. H. Austin , suc ceeding Hushnoll & Cox. Mr. Raymond made a present of his Interest to AV. Morton Smith , who was Installed as the manager of the brain department. Tlio venture did not prove a success , either .for Mr Raymond politically , nor for his protege , Mr. W. Morton Smith. Creditors recently took a hand , and Mr. Smith was sidetracked , much against hit ) wishes Ho Is now very much out of a Job , and n receiver Is being nought for the Call , so It Is rumored. Mr. Smith has not decided yet as to whether he will Jump In the river , leave the city to pre vent further embarrassment , or stay and let tils claimants have some fun with htm. Mr. Hanna , manager of the John R. Clarke estate , has a big Interest In the Call and also In the Lincoln Journal , and ho Is very anxious now to have the Call placed on Its feet again , but only ns on evening paper , thus keeping It out of the fluid as a rival or competitor of the Journal. H. M. Hushnell Is the fellow who has fallen upon his feet In the shake-up of the Call af fairs and now hua a soft snap In tlio state treasurer's office. In 1887 Charley Moshcr , late of Lincoln , had a bill passed by the leg islature which provided that all permanent school fund bonds that should come Into the hands of the state treasurer should bo of stamped , "Tho Property of the Nebraska Permanent School Fund , Not Negotiable. " At the last session of the legislature the etato treasurer secured an appropriation for a bond clerk at $100 per month for two years , to bo known as bond clerk , and charged with the duty ot stamping the above endorsement on the back of the warrants that may come Into the hands of the state treasurer. That work will keep a man busy , If he Is lucky , about ten minutes a month. Mr. Hushnell has that Job. Al Deeiner. late warden of the peniten tiary , has taken up his residence In Lincoln and Is In line for the appointment as super intendent of contractor * at the penitentiary under the Russell-Churchill regime. Gov ernor Holoomb holds a different .view of the situation , lie asserts that Warden Leldlgh Is competent to protect the state's Interosta nt the penitentiary , ami will oppose the Inno vation proposed by Churchill and Ruisell. in The plan to fatten Reemcr on the peniten tiary carries with It the appointment ot an nn army nf assistants and hangers on. It Is un- den'ood that Warden Leldlgh will appoint a deputy warden soon. Thin Is a new de parture at the penitentiary , as under the old ' Dntr.irl system the work that belongs to th deputy warden was done by th * head keeper.
