Revolutionary Collegians ! ! Columbia's Ruffians' Midnight Riot. DWELLINGS BROKEN INTO. CHURCHES DESECRATED. A BLOODY FIGHT ON FOURTH AVENUE. A DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
Revolutionary Collegians ! ! Columbia's Ruffians' Midnight Riot. DWELLINGS BROKEN INTO. CHURCHES DESECRATED. A BLOODY FIGHT ON FOURTH AVENUE. A DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR. (After the N. Y. Herald.) A T ERRIFIC panic occurred at midnight on Thursday, among the female patients of the Woman's Hospital. There were heard in the street sounds as of two hostile armies engaged in deadly conflict. Several of the buildings in the immediate neighborhood fell in ruins, and the uproar so alarmed the delicate patients in the hospital, that about fifteen of them jumped from the roof to the street below, and were instantly killed. The hospital is located on a mountain, bounded on the north by Fritz's; on the east by Lexington Avenue; on the south by 49th Street; and on the west by Fourth Avenue and the sunken track. This sunken track forms no mean fortification for two parties of hostile inclinations. It is spanned at 50th Street by a drawbridge with portcullis, which, on Thursday night, was made the scene...
Peithologia vs. Barnard. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
Peithologia vs. Barnard. Friday, May 7th, Barnard, for the second time this year, met Peithologia in the lists of debate, and came off victorious. The exercises were held in the chapel, and were not very well attended by the students in general. The audience mainly represented the two societies most interested, with the addition of a few Miners, who stole in during the debate for the purpose of gleaning some crumbs of literary knowledge. Mr. W. Forster, 'Bl, a memher of Peithologia, spoke on the "Benefits of Opposition." Mr. Forster's motive was well carried out, and the oration itself was carefully studied, and delivered with an earnestness and force that claimed attention throughout. Barnard was then represented by Mr. J. Carter, 'B2, who read an essay. Mr. Carter's subject was, "The Weak Things of the Earth shall confound the Strong," and his essay was a very interesting and well written production. The subject of the debate was, " Resolved, That Russia was justified in making wa...

The Mass Meeting. T N response to a call posted on the trees the students met in the chapel on the ioth instant, to take action in regard to the account which appeared in the Herald stating that Columbia students had been guilty of outrageous conduct at the Hahnemann Hospital Fair, and afterwards near College.

About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
About College. | "HE juniors are joyful at their day off in the midst of examinations. How are you to get to the benches without walking on the grass ? AN unusually accurate report of our regatta was given in the World. IT seems probable that we will meet Yale next summer on Lake George. THE Trustees met yesterday to decide about next year's course of electives. THE Miner is very good this year, though rather late in putting in an appearance. 'B3 HAS lately attempted to obtain a quorum for a class meeting, several times, but in vain. THE net receipts from the burlesque amount to about $4OO. The expenses reached about s7is. THE launch netted thirty-eight dollars to the boat club, on the occasion of the College regatta. THE list of substantial at Wall's is gradually becoming smaller, and is replaced by crackers and milk. SEVERAL of the shells in the boat house have been lately sold, including the eighty-one eightoared shell. ON May 13th the eleven defeated the St. George team by 21 ru...

HALLOCK, formerly Professor Joy's assistant in the College, now fills the position till lately held by Marsh, '79, viz: of assistant in the qualitative laboratory. ON Thursday, May 6th, Dr. Chandler delivered his lecture on the " Electric Light," under the auspices of the Chemical Society.

The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
The College World. AMHERST: — The prize in philosophy is to be awarded this year. It was last awarded in '76. The students have had the bumps on their heads examined by a phrenologist. Water pipes, to supply the College, are now being laid. We take the liberty of saying to our compatriots at Columbia that the Columbiad for this year is one of the nicest pieces of literary and artistic work of the kind we have ever seen. We trust that the editors in futuro of 'B2's Olio will read it simply to see what can be made of College Annuals. — Student. The nine has been successful in its games, so far. I3ARTMOUTH: — The college has just received $50,000 from B. P. Cheney, Esq.; $40,000 of which is to be used in endowing a Cheney professorship in mathematics. A bonfire was lit under the '77 class-tree, which came near destroying it. The new Dartmouth editors have been elected. HARVARD: — Memorial has 588 boarders. The Bicycle Club had a dinner on the 6th inst. Sherwood and Burch have taken the...
The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
The Library. \\T E have received " Rollo's Journey to Cambridge," which is reprinted from the Lampoon and published in book form, with illustrated colored cover. It is the combined work of J. T. Wheelwright and F. J. Stimson, both of '76 Harvard, and F. G. Atwood has illustrated it in his own taking style. The morals thrown in here and there, and the questions, to bring out the thinking powers of the young, are excellent, and we predict for the work a success like that attained by " The Little Tin Gods on Wheels,' which proved so popular last year. All who desire a hearty laugh should buy " Rollo."
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
Our Exchanges. ' I A HE Princetonian brings its fourth volume to a close and the Exchange editor reviews several of his more prominent contemporaries. He amuses himself with some harmless flings at Columbia as a " Day School " whose scholars come out at recess " each with his basket of gingerbread and doughnuts, pensively gazing up and down for a quiet nook in which to talk of beer-saloons." It amuses him and does not hurt us, so we are not revengeful ; but it seems rather inconsistent for the same paper, which rejoiced over the success of Princeton's graduates at our " Day School" commencement, to endeavor to cast a slur on the institution to which they came in search of knowledge. THE Echo has passed out of existence, if the Yale papers are correct. At any rate we have not received it for a long time, though at last accounts it boasted of a circulation of some 20,000 weekly, and printed the same in big letters on the first page. We hope prosperity has not proved too ruinous, and t...
Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
Shavings. Fresh. —"Please, sir, did I pass in—?" Prof. —"Well, no, I'm sorry to say you didn't quite come up to the mark." Fresh. —Thank you sir," (and starts out, smiling all over, as if highly delighted). Prof. —"Excuse me, Mr. , I'm afraid you misunderstood me. I said you hadn't passed." Fresh. —"Oh! I don't care anything about that. I've won my bet all the same." — Cour ant. Cam. Com. —" Mr. X., are you ready to pledge to me now?" Mr. X. —"No, not yet. I intend to pledge, I feel sure. I shall go to your society. I know how much you want me; my decision is made up, but give me two weeks to consider." This man enters 'B4. — Record.
The Inter-Scholastic. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
The Inter-Scholastic. | HE Second Annual Inter-Scholastic games were held on Saturday, the 15th, on the grounds of the Manhattan Club. As a number of the competitors in the events will be in College next autumn, and several of the winners and best athletes will be striving for Columbia's honor, and, perhaps, representing the Blue and White in the Inter-Collegiate next year, we take pleasure in chronicaling the sports. The referee for the occasion was Professor Van Amringe, and the judges were Mr. W. Taylor, '80; Mr. G. H. Taylor, '81; and Mr. W. S. Sloan, 'B2. THE HALF-MILE RUN was a walk-over for W. R. Trask, in two minutes, twenty-nine seconds. THE TUG-OF-WAR was won by the Wilson &amp; Kellog team, with the Cutler's, last year's winners, second. E. F. Coward took the QUARTER in, fifty-nine seconds; and H. Fairchild crossed the line first in the ONE MILE WALK; time, eight minutes, twenty and one-half seconds. The final heat of the ONE HUNDRED YARDS DASH was won by H. S. Br...
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 May 1880
Our Exchanges. A yl/"E have received the Harva?-d Register , and congratulate the proprietor on the success with which he has, single handed, been able to publish his journal. The present number contains several interesting biographical sketches, with a portrait of Prof. Pierce, the well known mathematician, and a sketch of the Hasty Pudding Club, with plans for the new building, which it is proposed to erect. THE Knox Student says : " Columbia ought to muzzle THE SPECTATOR on the question of her elocutionary department." If the Student's ad- vice were taken there would be reason to fear that oratory would be still less looked after than at present, and it is with the hope of bringing it to the proper standard that we have been so strenuous in advocating the establishment of a chair of oratory. We are sorry, very sorry that the Student should have a chance to speak of Columbia's deficiency, but the fact remains that oratory is neglected, and it is THE SPECTATOR'S endeavor to have it...
