FOUB YEARS IN STATE OFFICE Has Tana-at In Nnroner at School Tnreaahoat Nebraska State Penitentiary Earning Montr, (From a Btaff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, June 16. (Special.) JoBeph C. Sparks, who - was yesterday elected prin llpal of the Chadron Normal school, has been In the office of the mate superintend ent for the last five years, having charge t the 'work of county certification and being also a member o fthe board of ex amlner which passes on applicants for life certificates. Mr. Sparks came to Ne braska 1from Illinois In 1x85 and since that time he has taught In the following chools after, his graduation at Nebraska Central' college: (jieeley, for two years; Orleans; ftfr three years; Fairmont, for four years, and Aurora, for five years, llo was picked tip by State Superintendent Mc Brten to inaugurate the work under the certification law and he was highly recom mended for his present place by Attorney General Thompson, who has known him for twenty-five years. Mr. fcparks has a wife and three children. When he was state superintendent Jasper L. Mclirlen wrote of Mr. Hparka: Mr. Sparks Is an able organizer and Irons tUsoltillnnrlan. lie 1h courteous all and yet firm without being partial. lie Is systematic thorough, endowed with rare common senne, ami aDreast tne times on all educational problems. His work as president of tne state examining board for county certificates has given Nebraska a system for the certification of teachers unsurpassed In any state and the equal In every particular In efficiency and thor oughness to the United mates civil service commission." Were the state of Nebraska educated up to the point of paying Its public servants a salary commensurate with the service rendered, and our funds woud warrant it, I would pay Mr. Sparks uch a salary as to place his services be N yond the reach of any Board of Education in Nebraska. Prison Almost Self-Snstalningr. Statistics Issued by the office of the gov ernor Indicate that the state penitentiary Is almost "self-sustaining" again. The re port shows that at this time the receipts from the 250 convicts employed in the broom factory produce for the etate $3,515 '.monthly; from the 100 men employed In the ahlrt factory the receipts are $1,625; from heat and light furnished the state, $427.44; from cash and miscellaneous, $310, a total of $5,877.44. The maintenance. Including a payroll of $1,360 and coal, $1,200, is $6,000 a month. This would leave the Institution running behind, only $122.64 a month. It is reported that $350 extra had to be paid for coal last month because the warden was . unable to- secure the coal under contract, but had to buy it at retail In the city, and that tha increased cost of meat, based on the same number of convicts a year ago, had amounted to $876. Donovan a Resignation Received. The resignation of John Donovan, men- . tlon of which was made a few days ago, .haa reached Game Warden Oullus and has been accepted. Mr. Donovan was consld ered one of the best deputies the game warden had and he had several Important catches to his credit. Mr. Donovan will devote his. time, to his newspaper at Mad! son, probably taking a hand in democratic tJPOUUM.:,, o Mirw-T . Uootl Newe for Wayne, It Is possible that Attorney General .Thompson may decide that the State Nor mal board has a right to use that portion of the $30,000 appropriated for the purchase , of the Wayne Normal achool, unexpended, t pay for the maintenance of the lnstl tctlun. The board required only $70,000 of the appropriation to buy the school and nothing was appropriated to maintain it, so unless the parties from whom it was bought keep the school running it will be necessary to create a deficiency until the next legislature convenes or close the school. The attorney general looked up the law Ihl morning and, while he has not fully determined, It was his off-hand opinion that the balance of the appropriation could ba used to maintain the school.
