ELECTION OF THE OFFICERS IS HELD Vote to Mrrt In Lincoln 'Nrtl Yrnr , After Wlilc-li I lie So r I lien All bit DOMII tn ii Ilnmitirt. The Nebraska Press association closed Its iipsslon In thl city WeJnc-sday evening nhortly after 5 o'clock. The members ap peared to bo well satisfied with the treat ment accorded them by the local committee on arrangements. During the afternoon ereslon the association elected ofllcera and finished up Its buMnesa At ' 1 o clock In the evening a banquet was given the mem- tors by the business men of the city at the Paxton. Before going to the dining room the guests circulated through the parlors of the hotel and were Introduced to the men whoao guesUi they have been during tholr stay. Yeaterday morning the members were a little alow In getting together and It was fully half past 3 o'clock when Presi dent Howard called the meeting to order. The report of the secre tary-treasurer was referred lo a special auditing committee , consisting of Messrs llralncrd of the Chester Herald , Ludl of the Ilarlan County Democrat and Sheldon ot Chadron The secretary called the atten tion of the association to the death of John A MacMurphy , one of the \etcrnn editors of the state , and suggested that a special page In the coming report be devoted to Ills life , The suggestion waa adopted On hccount of the absence ot J. W Tanner of the rullorton Post his paper on "Tho IJps and Downs of a Newspaper Life , " was dispensed with. 12. Cunningham of the Wayne Republican addressed the members on the subject of "The Scmi- Wcckly Not Practical. " Mr. Cunningham stated that he has never had a personal ex perience In the publication of a semi-weekly paper and that therefore his remarks wore necessarily based upon his observation ot other editors' efforts to successfully publish i n paper on that line. A few of them were successful , but the great majority failed. In the cases whore SUCCOSH crowned the ef forts ot the editors the men who had charge I of the publications were men of exceptional ' nullity. A great deal depended upon the towu In which the papci was published. In moat country towns the farmers , upon whom the editor must depend for his subscription lint , came to town but once u week , nnd If they found two papers In their box they would naturally bo Inclined to look upon them as practically two numbers of the Fame edition. Ho thought that the extra labor and expense Involved were not Justified by the Increase In circulation. The fact that many able men had attempted the publication of a semi-weekly newspaper and Jmil failed was a strong argument against its practicability. I * Not n rnllnrc. Ii. A. Williams of Blair , who publishes a eml-weekly , replied to Mr. Cunningham "I am not prepared as jet to spcvik on this subject , not having had enough experience to Justify me In saying that the semi-weekly Is an entire success. Still 1 can safel ) s ly that In my case at least It Ins not been a failure. I found It a great advantage over the regular weekly papers during the late war. I could print the news on Monday that my competltorB did not get before the public on Thursday. I am free to confess that at first my subscribers were greatly opposed to having two small editions of the paper , In- etracl ot one large weekly edition. Thla I remedied by Issuing an eight-page piper on Thursday c and a four-page paper on Mon- III j P Krlr Johnson of tLe Wahoo New Hra ad dressed the meeting on the "Country Press. ' He stated that his experience In the news piper business extended back to the ' 40s nnd TiOa. when the country press WOK of little consequence , all people reading the large metropolitan weeklies It was this npli It that caused the New York Tribune to bilng its weekly circulation up to 500,000 "Today. ' he added , "wo have In Nebraska COO country papers , each publication aver aging mnro than 300 subscribers. These pa- peri reach every farmer In the state of Nebraska. They nre read by every English speaking family and discussed over the din ner table , so thet at the end of the week every article in the paper has been de bated and digested. The power exorcised by the country press for good or evil is almost unlimited. I believe thtit the country c'd- itor. possessing " " no does this Influence , should so regulate his life that ho may never bo ashamed of his acts If ho does so be will be a man of whom the community will feel proud. " The "Question Box" conducted by II B Herbert of the National Printer Journalist ot Chicago was a most Interesting feature , Mr. Ileihcrt was fully at homo along this line and answered questions covering .1 very wide range. He stated that ho hat' had seventeen years experience In publish' ni Ing country newspaper and was well Informed : irs formed nn the dlftlcultles that most editors urn forced to meet The * Invitation of Charles D. Thompson. n local advertising man , for the convention to go to the postoflire building and bo photo graphed was gratefully accepted. Mill on the < luentlon llos. The afternoon session was opened with n continuation of U B. Herbert's question box. The typo setting machines were thoroughly Oiscutuicd The chief objection urged nealnst them , aside from the throwing of so many men out of employment , was that In many cases thn men who operate the ma chines never learned the printer's tratlo nud ( hat they cannot therefore bo said to have Improved the condition of even the printer who operated them C F. Calhoun of the Springfield Monlto read a paper on "Tho Banker as an Editor' Mr Calhoun assured his hearers thnt hi lld not become an editor through choice , though he had for a long time desired tepee poe his thouehts in print.

On that day "Hobby" Burns was born , the poet of the- common people , whoso simple ver * < u und touching HOUR have become1 a pare of the lives of Scotia's sons , as the hard has become ouu of the heroes of Scot tish lege'tid and story. It Is a duy celebrated tlio world over by the Scots , with beautiful devotion to the memory of their beloved countryman.

Pictures of Burns and of "Highland Mary" were upon the walls and the atage was draped with the stars and stripe ? , the colors of the clan also finding a place In the dccoratlotis. Scottish costumes with men. women and children. were numerous throughout the audience anil ever and anon the nasal tones of the bagpipe - pipe would add a further Scot coloring to the gathering , made positive by the musical program , which opened with "Annie Laurie" nd closed with "Auld Lang Syne.

This opened ho regular program of the evening Shortly after this Clansman A C. Trout * made an address on "Memory of Burns. " He said the virtues and beauties or the poet's Ifo and worus have been * o often told by orators , writers and tdiolars It seemed use > ess to attempt to add anything new to the tvealth of eulogy which has been laid at the Vet of Burns Ho said the poet seemed to : iavo two separate and distinct phases to his . character , so much at variance with each | other that they might be assigned to differ ent Indlvldinls. One > of these was that of a light-hearted and fun-loving man , while the other , and the greater and more conspicu ous , was that of a person burdened with sorrow row and desoalr. Many people remembered the works of Burns for their bright humor or keen witticism , while his greatest work was performed whllo gloomy and dla- 'ouragcd ' The latter had been clabslfied bv competent tcholars as containing some of the noblest and mo t beautiful thoughts ever In theHngllsh language. Mr. Troup referred to the poet's writings on the subject of the tender passion and paid a beautiful tribute to them. He said It was these which caused the name of Bums to bo revered In every country on the gloho , re sulted In the poems being translated into nearly all of the languages and made- the poet loved by men and women , adult ami child , wherever his line1' were reau Throughout the address the speaker Illustra ted the point he was making by a short quotation from a Docm on the line of thought upon which he vms dwelling.

I Members of the executive and advisory committees of the Greater America Ksposl- tlon , together with a number of the direc tors , held a conference Wednesday after noon at the Paxton hotel for the purpose of discussing plans relative to the exposition pioject. The discussion touched In a general way upon financial matters , but no definite action was taken. The news from Washington re- gardlng the action of the ways and means committee In shelving the Mercer resolu tion came In for a share of attention. The action ( of the committee was not regarded ns n setback , and no one felt any discourage ment because ot It. The consensus of opin ion was to push ahead with all the plans , with or without the aid ot the government , After the conference P. 13. Her said with lefercnco to the action of the congressional committee : "It will make no difference at all with our plans. We had decided a long while ago to go ahead , whether we could get government assistance or not and the ways and means committee's action will not re tard us. " No llttlo additional encouragement was Infused later In the evening over the re ceipt of a mesaago from Senator Thurslon ! saying he was planning to get his hill through the eenate at the earliest possible moment.
