of publicity and give . the facta" to the
people of the state. Dr. Clark gave the
board until June 1 to get rlKht. He stated
in Ills letter that the child was first of
fered to the home a year ago, and because
of the fact that an operation was neces
sary before It would be a normal child.
Mis. Johnston, the superintendent, refused
to accept It, as she did not want It to as-em-late
with the other children. Applica

cause he said It would be at least two
years or eighteen months before the opera

cn the recommendation of the two super
intendents and refused to accept the child.
Dr. Clark wrote today that the child is

BUI for Plans Rejected.
The tSate Board of Public Lands and
Butldinga raised the axe this morning and
beheaded a voucher filed with the board
by Governor Shallenberger, turned It down
cold and refused to endorse It and rejected
It. The voucher was for 15 for piano rent
and it waa money due the Ross P. Curtlse
company, from, whom the governor had
rented the Instrument. On one or two pre
vious occasions the amount had been al
lowed. The piano was originally rented by
Governor Bheldoa and was at the mansion
when the present executive moved In.
The board decided that If Governor Shal
lenberger desired music he could buy an
Instrument out of the appropriation for the
maintenance of the executive mansion, but
It was poor business for the state to be
paying for a piano, which In the course
of time would more than pay for the in
strument The board thought the rent ex
orbitant anyhow. Besides, It was pub
lished- this morning that the governor's
office held there was no half way road
when it cornea to passing on claims either

In the meantime, during the absence of

Numerous complaints are being made to
day at the unusual number of drunks who
were present at the base ball game yester
day and made themselves obnoxious. When
Lincoln went dry It was hoped by those
who voted for prohibition that the city
would be elevated morally, but arrests
have been frequent since ths saloons were
voted out In addition to the drunks who
got into the ball game, one person was so
drunk at the Burlington station that the
train men refused to permit him to get on
the train. One drunk was removed from
the ball park.
Just where these people are getting their
boose, of course. Is a question which the
police are working overtime to discover.
Several places have been raided and con
siderable beer has ben confiscated and yet
the drunks continue to appear at publlo

Governor Shallengerger Is booked for an
appearance In Omaha Monday night, at
which time he will address a meeting of
mail carriers. The governor has not in
cluded Omaha very frequently In his In
tlnerarles since the signing of the S o'clock
closing bill, but his friends anticipate no
trouble when he reaches the metropolis
Monday afternoon. In fact, Omaha is ex
pected to give the state executive a
magnificent reception, because It was the
governor who raised his voice In com
mendation of the big city as a market
town when Omaha men who were present
said not one word. This was at a meeting
of bankers at Hastings.
Incidentally this appearance of the execu
tive will give Colonel Kuncl a glorious
opportunity to get right with his commander-in-chief,
though It Is likely he will
be beheaded unleas he informs the go
ernor Just who It was that tried to per
ace high with the chief, his humble letter
saude him to desert the staff in a time of
