UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

We are sorry if THE ILLINI has been so conducted in former years that the faculty have fears of its becoming a disturbing element among the students under its present conductors . If an honest and warm affection for the University can keep it from becoming such , then there is nothing to fear . We are not to be held accountable for what any one else has done . Whether former editors have done right or not does not concern us . We only know that if we do not speak freely our opinions upon nmtters relating to , the students and the University , we are not fulfilling the duties of our office . Of course we will always try to be in the rig ht and will never be forgetful of the interests of the whole institution . But we must have our say , and on the side which we think is < right . To stir up idle and useless tumult is surely not the office of a college paper , but to express the truth and the whole truth is its right and duty .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

The effect of the trustees action in limiting the stay of the preparatory students is already discernible in the unusual smallness of that class this year . We do not know whether to be glad or sorry that the sub-freshman is going . He is occasionall y troublesome , but still we always had an affection for him . He always pays whatever fees are charged him , but he must go . There is not a doubt but that the trustees have good and sufficient reasons for banishing him , or else they would not do so . Yet it hardly seems possible that his presence keeps the standard of the University proper lower than it would be in his absence . Can nothing be done to let him still have a place within these halls which he knows so well ? Let him be charged larger fees . We are sure that he will pay them readily rather than go forth as a wanderer in a strange land . But if the sentence is not removed from his head we can only give him a tearful (?) farewell , and hope that his going may prove a blessi...

Can not foot-ball be revived among us ? There is a woful need of some such game to call forth the energy and enthusiasm of all tHe students . The only game which finds favor here is base-ball . While this , in our opinion , is far ahead of any other in giving an opportunity for the exhibition of the highest scientific skill , it can only be participated in by a limited number at any one time . So , while there are a few excellent ball-players there are a great many who know nothing of the game , and even if they did they- would have no opportuni ty to play . During most of the college year , also , the weather is not suitable for the playing of base-ball . On the other hand , a very large number may play football at the same time . As in that game all the p layers are actively engaged during the whole time , the weather must be very cold indeed to be unlit for playing it . No one has to wait for his turn . Great skill is not requisite for successful playing ; all that is required is...

Prof . Crawford is deserving of the heartiest thanks from the members of the senior class for the action he has taken in regard to themselves and their intercourse with the library books . Having , as they now do , free access to all parts of the library , at least one day in each week , they have the opportunity of becoming acquainted with many classes of books , and can , with a little care , lay out p lans of reading which will be of great help to them in after times . A knowledge of what books have been written on any subject in which one is interested may here be obtained in a short time , the more intimate acquaintance which comes through reading and study must come later . All that can now be done is simply the rough-hewing of what is to be shaped slowly into rounded completeness . These days among the books do as much towards knocking away the rough edges of ignorance as do many of the studies of the curriculum . They give the student new foot-holds on the heights of learnin...

We fear that the bugbear of bankrupt ; cy cannot be removed from the students government as lightly as the regent thinks . It is not b y any means a question of generosity but a question of right , in regard to paying the government s indebtedness . The students cannot be governed by means of a system of charities . Collections of money have been made before to pay debts which could not be met by the proceeds arising from collected fines , but we hope that it will never be necessary to make any more such . By no means still do we think that the generous offer of the regent should be taken advantage of . . The question is not as to who shall , out of charity , relieve the government , but who should rightfull y do so . As we have before stated , we think it the place of the members of the faculty to do this . Suppose that as the regent suggests the debt should be raised by means of a collection . among the students . For a time all would be well . But another debt will be accumulatin...

Why dp not the professors attend chapel more regularly ? Some of their number , it is true , are seldom absent , but a far greater number only appear at long intervals , and a few are not present during the exercises , on an average , twice a year . We think that this is not just as it should be . It is setting an example to the students which , if they should follow , would cause trouble at once . But really , now , we cant see how a professor who has not been to chapel for a whole term can have the heart to pass judgment upon a student who has three unexcused absences in the same time . If a professor has no interest in the chapel exercises and the whole body of assembled students , we do not know any better way for him to show it than to stay away regularly from chapel . If his work will not allow him to attend all the time , he can certainly gladden the students with his presence at least occasionally . We can assure them all that with their presence the exercises are more inter...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

In nearly all the colleges of the country political clubs have been formed among the students . We . are happy to say that no such organization exists among the students of the State University . It is well to live as college men do , apart from the universal every day rush of the world , gaining simply knowledge : why then should they deliberately and uselessly drag into their midst such a discordant element as politics ? It is true that every , intelligent man should be acquainted with the political questions of the day and know how to vote , but he will never gain any information which is worth having from a noisy club . If the only object is to express enthusiasm , then let us say that any such ebullitions of patriotism had better be restrained until the posesser shall have emerged from college walls . It will appear amusing to any one who will take the trouble to reflect upon it , to see the excessive eagerness which many show in taking to themselves the grevious burden of a gr...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

In our next number we will present to our readers the oration delivered b y Mr . Allen at the late oratorical contest . We take great pleasure in being able to present to our readers so fine an article as this . That in thought and composition it stands high above all the other orations delivered at that time there is not a doubt . We know from his- own volunteer statement that this is the opinion of at least one of the judges . Our University should have a pride in the orator who as her representative , delivered this oration full of thoughtful argument expressed in finished benteuces ; a pride deeper than that felt by the college whose orator gained the first prize by the splendid delivery of a disconnected row of schoolboy paragraphs . We are perfectly satisfied with the decision of the judges . We think the prizes were awarded justly . But when either of the winning orations shall be reduced to cold type and placed beside that of Mr . Allen , it will be found wanting in many res...

To ^ -us there seems to be a very distinct moral discernible in the result of the oratorical contest . It is this : our University can never hope to compete successfull y in oratory with other colleges , so long as its students have no more facilities for elocutionary training than they have had in the past . Net only must the orator who hopes for success write a worthy oration , but he must also practice it long and carefull y under the direction of an able master of vocal expression and platform graces . But before this he must have had long training to make it possible for him to profit by the lessons of his teacher . This last is what can only come through school training which extends over a considerable portion of time . Such training it has been impossible of late years to obtain at the University . But we hope for better things in the future . From the beginning of next term we hope that there will never be a time when a regular teacher of elocution shall be wanting among us...

The seniors haw arrived at a part of their course where it is well for them to do more than simply study and recite . They should teach themselves to think independent of books . If they have not already learned to put forth their powers in preparing society work or otherwise , they should not neglect to do so in writing the required bi-weekly essays . This essay writing furnishes an excellent drill if it is gone about in the right manner . The too common way is to get all ideas which are expressed in them from reference books , and in such a servile manner that nothing is the students own except the mistakes in composition . A better way than this is to read nothing until the first draft of the essay is written . This will contain all the thoughts which the writer can put forth as his own , and will accordingly be more valuable to him than if the finest thoughts of any amount of great men were there expressed . When the essay is once written in this way , let him read whatever bear...

BRIDGES OF NEW YORK . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

BRIDGES OF NEW YORK . Thinking it might be of interest to the readers of THE ILLINI , I have undertaken to give a description of the two famous bridges of New York City , High Bridge and East River Bridge , both of * which are among the most famous bridges of the JUorld . High Bridge , so called from its great height , is used for the purpose of supporting the aqueducts which supply New York City with water . It spans Harlem River at 175 th street which is some eleven miles above the foot of the city . Its total length is 1 , 460 feet , and it is supported b y thirteen arches , resting on solid granite piers . This gives to each arch , including the space of one pier , a span of nearly no feet , as the ends take up some space . The arches , too , are of solid granite and the outside walls above them are of the same material . The arches , over the water , have an altitude of 116 feet , but the top of the bridge is some thirty feet higher . When you think of the vast breadth and heig...

CLAD PAN . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

CLAD PAN . Pan went piping through the reeds , Less a god than shepherd wight he ; What cares he that no one heeds This , his music sweet and mighty ! Joyful did his syrinx sound , Joyful , with a touch of longing , Sweet , and down his sun-embrowned Cheeks the sudden tears came thronging . Then again he kissed his pipe , Smiling , though the tears were glistening , And the chestnuts dropping ripe Listened , and the boughs were listening . ) Why should we deny him praise , I Though uncouth his form and face is , Who along the forest ways Scatters songs in wayside places ? ! Pan , tiie poet , who shall say ? Pan the god or Pan the shepherd , But not poet-like are they , . Hoof of goat and skin of leopard . But Pan cares not ; dews and dawns , \ Pipe of reeds , and shepherds dancing ( On the steep Arcadian lawns , Are enough for joy s advancing .

GALESBURG AND THE CONTEST . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

GALESBURG AND THE CONTEST . It is somewhat hard on returning from a p leasant excursion to sit down and write a satisfactory account of it . Everything which occurred seems worthy to be told , and only a little of all can be told . But if that little can only be expressed in an entertaining way , that is all that can be asked of the writer . Therefore , O reader , read and judge ye . Between three and four oclock on the morning of October 13 , a party of about sixty students boarded the I ., B . & W . train and started for Galesburg to attend the inter-collegiate oratorical contest . About a dozen ladies were in the party . At that early hour there was little outside of the car to be seen so no attention was paid to the fleeting but invisible landscape , and all rode merrily through the darkness , leaving lessons behind without a pang . But a few miles beyond Bloomington the sun came up in a splendid manner , arid seemingly regardless of expense . From that time on the h...

THE SIGNAL SERVICE STATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

THE SIGNAL SERVICE STATION . At last the United States signal service station at the University is in running order . Sergeant L . A . Welsh , formerl y stationed at Escanaba , Michigan , has charge of the observations . The room which was used last year as a painting studio has been fitted up for an office anc an access to the roof has been arranged To most it will be surprising to learn tha the amount of apparatus is small and th < working very simple . A wind vane , at anemometer , barometers , hygrometer anc self-registering thermometers are the prin cipal instruments . Four observations pe day are taken for the central office : at a . m ., 11 a . m ., 3 p . m . and 11 p . m , whicl by our local time will occur forty-fiv < minutes earlier .

TO WHOM IS THE HONOR DUE ? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

TO WHOM IS THE HONOR DUE ? BUFFALO , N . Y ., October n , 1 S 80 . P ^ DITOR I LLINI : — Dear Sir—I have just read with pleasure Mr . A . B . Seymour s article on Pear Blight , in THE ILLINI , of October 5 . I am pleased to see knowledge of that sort disseminated , but I think he is claiming too much for the University . What has the University discovered ? That the pear blight is a fungus we have known for years . I think the honor belongs to Mr . Thomas Meehan , of Philadel phia . I refer you to the Gardners Monthly , page 304 , October , 1879 . Honor to whom honor due . Yours respectfull y , CHAS . D . ZIMMERMAN . The article referred to reads as follows : It ( the Gardners 1 Monthly ) has shown by careful microscopic examination in the earliest stages , that the disease is caused b y a minute fungus which develops in the bark and penetrates inwardly , destroying the cell structure as it proceeds . The fungus is so small that the distinguished investigator , Dr . J . Gibbons Hunt...

Good advice—Let the other party worry about your debts . Where arc those two little S s that madethings so sweet last year ? Will the students pay the government debt ? Shall the Regent do it ? Then upon whom does it fall ? The boys didn t take in the Decatur reunion on the 7 th , as arrangements could not be made to stay over ni ^ ht . A and B companies take skirmish drill . It relieves the monotony , of fours riwht and left , and it is a good departure . The intcr-socicty oratorical association have adopted their annual constitution .

Base-ball at Calesbure . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 20 October 1880

Base-ball at Calesbure . Below will be found a partial score of the match game played at Galesburg , Wednesday afternoon , between the Knox nine and one from our own University . Not much was expected from us , being a farmers college , but the boys did about as well as they could under the circumstances , as did also their opponents , The Knox pitcher and catcher are said to have been imported from Peoria , which makes Champaign s victory the more praiseworthy . From the score it will be seen that Knox was ahead at the end of the fifth inning , but our boys got the hang of Schneblys delivery , and , in the next three innings brought in ten scores , winning the game . The umpire , Mr . G . R . Walker , of Chicago , was impartial in his rulings and gave general satisfaction . SCORE : ILLS .

July 30 , 1 SS 0 , his inar . y friends have sustained a loss which they cannot at first full y realize . After a long and painful illness of eighteen weeks , he passed away just at break of day , without a murmur and without pain . Cover me up warm , Father , and let me alone ; Mother I am dying , were the last words he said . We buried him on the Sunday following , in the little village churchyard beside a younger brother . There were hundreds who mourned his sroing , manv tears were shed bv those who loved him . The old and young alike , united in offering tributes of affectionate regard to departed worth . His gentle and faithful disposition , his truth and sincerity had won for him the esteem and confidence of all good people who knew him , and his rare abilities , his untiring industry , might have won for him a great name . We cared for him tenderly and fait...
