ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
ALUMNI. K®sag|GAlN does it become our sorrowful duty to chronicle the visitation of death into the ranks of the Alumni. This time we are called upon to mourn the passing away of two young ecclesiastics, just in the prime of life. With four deaths the current scholastic year already gives promise of an unusually large harvest for the grim reaper. The first to answer the call was Rev. Dennis J. Crowley, 'B7, who died of pneumonia at Wilmington, Delaware, on the 18th ult., after a short illness. Father Crowley was born in Boston thirtyone years ago and was educated in the public schools, from which he entered the College. After graduation, he decided to study for the priesthood and chose St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, as the place of preparation. He made an excellent record as a theological student, just as he had done when in college, and was ordained for the diocese of Wilmington, by Archbishop Williams, in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Boston, June 26, 1891After a short rest, Bi...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
CLASS NOTES. Class of '97. H E philosophers, ever desirous of jfjjtgP spreading the fame of the college and being especially interested in her athletics, have undertaken their part in the formulation of plans for the coming athletic meet with an enthusiasm which is highly commendable, and which is rapidly spreading in the student body at large. Hugh M. McDermod, the president of the Fulton Debating Society, has been elected president of the committee of undergraduates for arrangements, and Patrick S. Cunniff, the editor-in-chief of the STYLUS, has been elected treasurer. Eeo F. O'Neil, Henry M. Brock, Dennis J. Brown, and John T. McEleney have received hearty congratulations from their fellow-stu-dents for their excellent work in the public exhibition before Father Provincial. Eeo O'Neil's disputation on the nature and certainty of logical truth was remarkable for the classic purity of the Latin, and it well won the generous applause it received. William F. Lyons, the captain of the...
A SCHOLASTIC PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
A SCHOLASTIC PROBLEM. SOMEWHERE, JANUARY 30, 1897. DEAR EDITOR: The fatuousness of that fellow in Shakespeare who asked the question, "what's in a name," was never more manifest than it is this year, when a host of ripe Freshmen have begun their college career utterly at sea as to their common denominator. We of '99, who have attained the highest mark of any class in the century, may heartlessly laugh at the plight of the class of 1900 ; but College spirit ought to induce us to give what assistance we can to solve this problem. For four years these seekers after a degree will, unless something is done, wander namelessly from classroom to class-room, around the gymnasium, over foot-ball and base-ball fields, through debating, literary and scientific societies, having a local habitation but no name, unless two naughts make a name. Peter Schlemihl's loss of his shadow is a small misfortune compared to theirs. Peter, Adalbert Chamisso tells us, nearly went mad at the uncanny thought tha...
SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
SOCIETY NOTES. HE fourth and last preliminary debate of the Fulton Debating Society will be held in the Society's room on the twenty-sixth of the current month. "That an income tax is a desirable and practicable mode of taxation," was the subject chosen by the house after much discussion. Michael J. Casey, '97, and George A. McEaughlin, '9B, will speak in favor of such a measure; John P. Sheehan, '9B, and John B. Doyle, '99, however, will oppose any such law. The duty of critic will devolve on Henry A. Grainger, '97. In the establishment of the " Annual Boston College Open Meets," the Athletic Society has found an earnest and zealous supporter in the Fulton Debating Society. This organization, at a recent meeting, voted one hundred dollars to aid its sister Society in paying whatever expenses might be incurred by this undertaking. The Committee on the Constitution hopes ere long to put in the hands of the members the revised edition. In the John Boyle O'Reilly Debating Society it ha...
AD SOROREM ABSENTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
AD SOROREM ABSENTEM. Though far from you, my sister dear, I still behold your sparkling eyes; I see upon your tender cheek The bloom that breathes of Paradise. In dreams I hear your rippling laugh, I know your voice so sweet and low; Anon I see your wealth of hair Reflect the sunset's golden glow. My love is pure as spotless snow, As broad and deep as any sea; And fervent as the tropic sun, And lasting eke as life may be. Did I but know the winds could speak The brother's love I bear for you, I'd whisper gently to the breeze, And waft a greeting kind and true. Francis J. Carney, '9B.
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
ATHLETICS. Igggggfo^fflHOßTLY after our open indoor meeting last year, §|S|ragl| the proposal to hold a grand athletic carnival ||g|gE| this year was made, and was looked upon with favor by those intimately connected with athletics. There were, however, some " doubting Thomases " who believed that the undertaking was too great, and that the advances were too rapid to insure success. As the time for preparation drew near, the number who believed failure would follow was greatly augmented, and open declarations were made against the plan. It was but the fear of cautious men, however ; for once the advisory board met, all doubts were dispelled, and the members of the Athletic Association, urged on by the encouraging remarks of Dr. Dunn and Messrs. Drum, Buckley and Brett, took the first active step when a committee was appointed to take charge of affairs. The following were asked to serve in conjunction with the members of the advisory board in carrying out the plans determined upon : ...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
EXCHANGES. MONG the new exchanges that have gsKp! reached our table, we are pleased to notice the S. V. C. Student from Los Angeles, Cal. With its artistic cover and the systematic arrangement of its reading matter, it is a magazine which the Exchange editors hail with delight. In poetry the Student chants the requiem of the old year, and bids the new year a hearty welcome. " Vignettes of our Land" are two delightful sketches of California life, while "Dreams" and" History " are well written. The Editorial and Exchange Departments are carefully edited and manifest the earnest work of their respective editors. We admire the excelsior tone of the Student , and we trust that it will be one of our regular visitors. The Mountaineer for January is, as usual, full of excellent literary productions. An essay on Edgar Allen Poe is a learned comparative study of the famous author of " The Raven." "Memoirs" and "In the Land of Dreaming " are poems worthy of the Mozcntaineer, while " An Innocen...

TRANSLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
TRANSLATION. ( Horace, Book 1, Ode 8.) O Eydia, by the gods above, Why dost thou bring on Sybaris Swift ruin by thy wanton kiss, Which turns his every thought to love? Why does he loathe the training ground, Though once inured to dust and heat? i\nd why desists from martial feat, Nor musters at the bugle sound? And why no more does he control With wolf-fanged curb the Gallic steed? And why no more does he proceed To bathe where Tiber's billows roll? Why shuns he still the wrestler's oil, As though it were a viper's sting? Why doth he now no longer swing Arms black and blue with martial toil, Though once renowned by frequent cast Of discus or of heavy dart Beyond his mates, and though his art Had easily all else surpassed? Why hides he, as tradition boasts The son of Thetis sought to do Ere Troy's sad downfall, to eschew The slaughter of the Trojan hosts? Joseph P. Cady, 'pp.

SONG OF THE SNOW-BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
SONG OF THE SNOW-BIRDS. Merrily, merrily chirping and singing, As over the hills we fly; Now down to the dale with its frozen brooks, Then up o'er the crags with their crystal nooks, While chasing the snow-flakes that whirl along, We weave them into our blithesome song. Happily, happily singing and dancing, As over the hills we fly ; So far from the land of the ice and snow, We follow the winds where they chance to blow ; We sing on the boughs" of the leafless trees, Our carols are wafted on every breeze. Cheerily, cheerily piping and chirping, As over the hills we fly; 'Neath the furze and the heather we make our nest, At thy kindly door we're a welcome guest, While under thy window we sing to thee And carol our thanks in joyful glee. Mournfully, mournfully, sadly retreating, As back o'er the hills we fly ; When the brooks are released from their icy bed, And flowery meads their sweet perfume shed, Then back to the north, with its bright blue sky And frozen seas, will we homeward f...
REMINISCENCES — (Fourth Paper). [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
REMINISCENCES — (Fourth Paper). MUSICAL AND EPISTOLARY. HE labor and sacrifice given to the interests of the St. Cecilia Society laical by Mr. James A. McHugh, S. J., during the years of '7l and '72 were prodigious. A musical library was started by him, and a musical cabinet, with a hundred musical gems, was left by him at his departure from Boston College as a reminder of his work in the interests of the St. Cecilia Society. Above all, he left a musical spirit after him among the students, and I firmly believe that that love of music was handed down from class to class in succeeding years. Father McHugh, S. J., wrote me after his departure from Boston as follows: WOODSTOCK COLLEGE, SEPTEMBER 21, DEAR P. H.: What a pleasant surprise your letter and music gave me ! I was sitting here in my room poring over physics, and preparing like a schoolboy my lessons for class, when in comes an extra amount of mail stamped Boston. What does this mean? What have I done? Why, nobody writes to me ...
A HINT FROM HORACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
A HINT FROM HORACE. To be a poet of renown And read by high and low; To gain a never-fading crown Of laurel, don't you know, Be patient for a score of years, And have a middle name ; And if accounts be in arrears, Be patient just the same. Retire to a secluded spot Where cooling zephyrs blow ; And then if write you still cannot, Why let your nailkins grow. Be sure and leave your locks to flow In ringlets long and white; Be sure and let your whiskers grow, Or else you cannot write. Don't mind what folk may say or do ; As Samson could not fight Without his flowing locks, so you With short hair cannot write. I once touched up the things of life, And did it with a will; I wrote of Sorrow, Love and Strife Whole pages I could fill. But I have lost that noble art I fear I'm past my prime ; And though I'm still a bard at heart, I scarce can lisp in rhyme. It is not through a lack of hair, As everybody knows: The jealous speak as if I were Attempting rhyme in prose. Bartholomew B. Coyne. '&a...
A FINE REFUTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
A FINE REFUTATION. jjfe'jiggjHlHK Editor of the STYLUS has asked me to review a pamphlet of some forty pages written by Dr. Shanahan of the Catholic University at Washington, against a work composed by Professor Fiske of Harvard University. The pamphlet is entitled " The Idea of God," and contains a vast amount of erudition in the various fields of Philosophy, Theology and modern science. The essay is clear and methodical throughout; and, considering the abundance of technical language which it contains, it is rather intelligible even to a person who has not studied Philosophy or Theology. In the year 1895, Professor Fiske published a book on "The Idea of God as affected by Modern Knowledge." In this book the author maintains that the modern world is much beholden to the theory of evolution for brushing aside old notions of the Deity ; because recent and mediaeval Theologians are tinged with anthropomorphism, which they have inherited from the days of Augustine. Dr. Shanahan first p...
LUCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
LUCY. She dwelt among the untrodden ways Beside the springs of Dove, A maid whom there were none to praise, And very few to love. A violet by a mossy stone Half hidden from the eye ! Fair as a star when only one Is shining in the sky. She lived unknown, and few could know When Lucy ceased to be ; But she is in her grave, and oh ! The difference to me. Wordsworth.

HAPPINESS, NOT MATERIAL PROGRESS, THE END OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1897
HAPPINESS, NOT MATERIAL PROGRESS, THE END OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT. O writers, ancient and modern, the subject of government has been a feiPigal theme fruitful of discussion and research. It has afforded some ample latitude to give their wildest fancies fullest play; while to others, who have built upon a sound and solid basis, it has given much matter for deep study and reflection. Poet, orator, philosopher, statesman, all alike with more or less enthusiasm and success, have roamed and revelled within its domains. The theories resulting therefrom have been often marvels of genius rather than productions of reason. For the ingenious manner in which many marshal their statements, and the adroitness with which their deft pens manipulate obscure phrases adapting them to the conclusions they desire rather than to their logical consequence are indeed skilful but amazing. It is genius run riot. Many modern writers point with boastful triumph to the marvellous strides which progress in its tire...
