Scarcely once a year , except during Commencement week, diO we have the opportunity of listening to a dliscourse from an eminent person. Hitherto our onl y means of getting a lecturer has been to engage him under the ausp ices of some one of the organizations of the students , generall y the Athletic Association. V A ~~~~ lecture whil e a stu dent ’s m _ind is fresh with educational top ics , goes further to fix itself in his min _d than at any other time ; and has a tend ency to set him to thinking on lines which he woul _d not , had he not the opportunity thrust upon him. At Commencement evei_.y one is too busil y engaged to think candidl y of what is being said , and if not busy with his own affairs, he tires of the tedious exercises so much that reall y he little appreciates the importance of ...

an institution of learning. One step in the right direction has been the refusal of late of some of our most note _d institutions of learning to grant such degrees as C. E., M. E., and Ph. D., until after the canciklate has finished some considerable amount of advanced work in the instituti on or submitted proper work as an equivalent. The practice of some of our colleges conferring hi gh _d egrees on men in elevated public positions without regard to their accomp lishments in the lines which the degrees should require, leads to confusion however. The term Professor is much used by gradu _~ ttes of colleges who are teaching graded schools and academies , who maki ng specialties of no branches of learning, who would find it _dl ifficult to say what they are Professors of, or what Chair they hold. Almost any noted cowboy, bicycle rider , or snake charmer , can style himself "Prof. " and have the assent of those who should receive it with clisapproval. - Not unlike many oth _erexamp le...

have always been the main featu res of the literary societies. At this day in a country like ours no man can hold a promin ent position among his countrymen who is not able, not onl y to write so that he may be of interest to the general reader, but also to speak extempore at some length. IT mi ght be well to speak now , seeing there is an opportunity for it, about the dangerous manner in which snowballing is liable to be carried on. It is true that *e all naturall y seek for en joy _nient, those sports which are slightly associated with danger ; and there is probably no sport as tempting as snowballing is in its season. If it must be done , let it be done in a manl y and refined way. There is probabl y no _snore danger in a snow-ball match ‘ than there is in a game of foot-ball. But let it take place away from the buildings and main walks on the campus , where there is no danger of injuring disinterested persons. There is much danger of dloing injury by throwing snow at a person wh...

biased in jud gment on their cases. Relatives and friends can _’ visit them and they can keep up a healthfu l correspondence with ’ the outside world. Instead of schools of vice we have reforniatories which are nurseries of virtue. All this means that forces are at work social , moral and reli gious for the criminal’ s welfare. But after considering these mi ghty changes wrought within a century, comes the _perti _l ~ ent question : Have these improvements in prison systems and criminal law been followed by a proportionate decrease in crime and the number of criminals ?" It must be confessed they have not. Is it because of too great leniency or because our system is fundamentall y wrong? Prisons arc established to protect the communit y and to reform the prisoner. Theti have we adequate pretection , and have we the most efficient means for the re formation of the prisoner ? When a hardened criminal comes to the courts of justice time after time it is not just that he should be turne...

such _productio _t ~ ‘‘takes the bread from the lionest laborer. " Let us look at statistics bearing U ~~Ofl this subject. We find in several states the pro du cts of prison labor amount to a number of millions annuall y. U pon superficial examination this seems enormous , but let us remember that this includes the immense cost of raw materials and the pay of skilled labor and supervision , by no means convict labor. Viewed in this lig ht , the actual convict production dwindles from inillions to a few hundred thousands. Why have we labor in our prisons? Chiefl y because of its aid in maintenance , and not from a reformative stand-1 _oiiit. Whether this be ri ght or whether it be wrong, it is upon this same laboring class the main burden of these idle convicts will lie. Challeng ing the charges of sentimentalism we _claim that from a practical standpoint such abolitio n of prison labor would be very wrong. ‘With the awful consequences, of enforced idleness hang ing over us, with the...

At this juncture we find our highest office presided over by one who chose to be chief ofa party, ami d not of a nation. In his eye no country existed , except _. that of the party which elected him. Under this petty "Czar ,’’ public officers , from t h e hi ghest to the lowest , who were thoug h t to look upon this new dynasty with disfavor , were dismissed. Their places were filled , n ot by men of honesty, sobriety and competency, as per co nstitutional require ments , bu t by men who were active in securing his election amid zealous in supporting his party , Since then public interest has been the last thing considered when public servants were to be selecte d , and a public treasury is to-day looked upon _l)_oliticall y as so much leg itimate booty to be dished out to the successfu l party, in much the same way as the merchandise of a rich caravan is divided by the Bedouins of the desert. Forthermore there was no effort made to conceal the mercenary character of this system , b...

familiar with its workim _igs , a machine-governnient. This political machine is a contrivance , composed of numerous elements , so combined as to produce a given result or attain a specified object. These elements are represented by a class of men , who make politics a profession , ami d above all , aim at making it profitable to themselves. This of course necessitates placiii g all positions of tru st and emolument in the hands of men of their own class, aiming always to deprive the people of the ri ght or option of selecting them ~ It ~ war we know it is impossible to accomplish anything without orgam _iizati on , unity of purpose , ami d concert of action. So in politics , and under our defective forms of popular election , this process of manuevering proves an easy matter as it is but a curious combination of fraud and force. The first step in this _I)ohitiCal farce, is termed engineering the primaries and is done by an assemblage of _sovere, _~ i_,,s. The routine is somethin g...

of the incumbent? Two gross and painful cases coni c to mind as I write - first that of Matthew S. Quay, the owner and proprietor of the Republican party of Pennsylvania , and second that of Stevenson A. Archer , the pride and idol of the Democratic party of Mary land ; both guilty of the same crime , committed in the same pos itions of tr ust. Quay today represents the comnm _omiwea lth of Penna . at our national capi tal , while Archer ’s _presemice traces the hosp ital of the Baltimore Penitenti ary. Quay in the outfit ofa sportsman seeks his healt h in the ~ ‘iand of flowers , ’’ but Archer in prison garb looks after the health of his fellow comivicts. This represents some of the phases of American politics. This is the deplom’able condition into which the public affairs of our nation have fallen.
