A VISIT TO MENLO PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

A VISIT TO MENLO PARK. MENLO PARK is an incipient metropolis twentyfour miles from New York on the Pennsylvania Railway, yclept after the euphonious patronymic of a whilom wealthy Californian. It cannot boast of many inhabitants, and the houses are few and far between, in fact the scenery thereabouts has all the monotony which is inseparably connected with the name of New Jersey. Nevertheless, this town is to-day, probably as well known in the United States as Cincinnati or Buffalo, and the number of pilgrims thitherward increases every day. Menlo Park is the place of residence, and contains the laboratory of THOMAS A. EDISON. Explanations are unnecessary. On Thursday, the 12th of September, Publius resolved to augment the stream of visitors to this modern scientific Mecca. He had before written to Mr. Edison, asking whether his rules would permit a representative of the paper of New York's proud old university, etc., etc. to visit his establishment, and in return had received a ver...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

ABOUT COLLEGE. MR. JOHNSON, 'BO has left his class and entered Cornell. THE Junior class mourns the loss ot six members. ONE HUNDRED candidates for admission, of whom seventy-nine have already entered. PRES. BARNARD and Prof. Burgess are still absent. CYRUS EDSON, formerly of 'BO is now at the School of Medicine. THE work of blasting and laying the foundations for the new buildings still continues. THE Senior class comes back with the addition of one member, Mr. Kellogg, who had left it on a leave of absence. AT the meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science held at St. Louis, Aug. 22d and following days, Morgan, 'BO read a paper on a " Cliff-house in the Canon of the Mancos River, Colorado." Mr. Benjamin, '7B, S. of M., of the SPECTATOR was also present. THE following men have matriculated in the classes named, this year for the first time, Mr. C. S. M. Belden in 'BO, and Messrs. Wm. A. Dunning and L.W. Hotchkiss in 'Bl. ROSE 'Bl, won the quarter mile run, a...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

OUR EXCHANGES. THE Yale Courant has not much of interest, this number, except an article which shows how students often " stuff" the profs, and a well written article which tells us, what we knew before, that men often write more than is beneficial to their reputations. THE Princetonian complains that the number of men who are allowed to choose any particular elective is limited, and that, as it is now, many men are cut off from studies in which they would do good work and obtain the best preparation for their career in after life. These men naturally lose interest in their studies, and to them Senior year, instead of being the most, will prove the least profitable of all the years of College life. It also contains an article on Foot-Ball, which contends that the Rugby is less dangerous than the old Association game ; and that players get hurt chiefly through inexperience. On the whole it is a very good college paper. THE Niagara Index gets very wroth over the expression "howling We...

ALUMNI NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

ALUMNI NOTES. THE annual meeting of the Alumni Association of Columbia College was held on the evening of October Bth, at Delmonico's, Prof. Drisler occupying the chair, The annual election resulted in the choice of the following officers: Pres. Henry Drisler; VicePres., Frederic DePeyster; Sec., Robert C. Cornell; Treas., Seth Low ; Standing Com., Messrs. J. H. Van Amringe, R. A. Hamilton, R. H. Work, George C. De Witt, Jr., G. M. Spear, Jr. The Standing Committee reported that the academic department comprises 75 Freshmen, 69 Sophomores, 38 Juniors and 45 Seniors. The report says that the $4,000 appropriated for the purchase of books devoted to municipal law, and $2,000 for books on political science and international law will greatly enhance the value of the library. A special committee reported that the Strong library could not be procured. A resolution of thanks and congratulations was voted to the Columbia College crew for their great international victory at Henley. AT the me...

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

School of Mines. WE were mistaken in our last issue when announcing that Prof. Trowbridge proposed the the adoption of a German text-book. We have, nevertheless, the very best authority for saying that German is a real necessity to the advanced students and to graduates. And yet the professors who urge this, and who must surely know that the study of the German language in the School is a farce, will not take the first step towards making the department efficient. In the Sheffield Scientific School this study is considered to be by no means the most unimportant of the list and its graduates show the results in being able to translate at sight. Why can not such an order of things be established here ? It has been urged that our men are so occupied in other branches as to render the prosecution of this comparatively unimportant one impossible. By the new regime this is untrue as regards the first class ; and for the second, surely, a competent instructor could accomplish much in two h...

THE SUMMER SCHOOL OF MINING. (1878.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

THE SUMMER SCHOOL OF MINING. (1878.) IN accordance with a decision of the trustees it was announced, early in the spring, to the miners of the third class that their attendance would be required at a practical school of mining as a condition for further promotion. Great was the consternation that at first followed this announcement. All projected plans for the seaside, the mountains, the West, and the South had either to be given up entirely, or postponed indefinitely, and preparations were begun for the six weeks excursion. A committee of two was elected and sent at the close of the examinations to Port Henry to decide upon the vital questions of comfortable accomodations and location. This committee resolved to engage rooms, at a hotel in the village, known as Pease's, at the very low rate of $6 a week. Several other members followed. but it was not until Friday, June 14th, that the class left, as a body. Reduced rates had been obtained by one of the enterprising committee-men, vi...

The Law-School. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

The Law-School. THE COLUMBIA SPEC TATOR is designed to be a University paper, and hence every department of Columbia has a right to representation in its columns We might go further and say in the abstract —all departments have equal rights of representation, and none has any precedence. But this is stating an ideal case, and it is our duty to state that this case has not yet by any means become a reality. Not only is one great department—that of Medicine —not represented at all, but all attempts, however well meant and however faithfully made of giving the School of Mines and the Law School equal rank with the academic department have hitherto failed entirely. The reason for this it is easy to state. It is this, that the students in the Mines, and, more especially in the Law School, being engaged in the acquirement of knowledge which has a direct bread-and-butter value to them —being indeed not undergraduates any more but having been fairly launched into the deep sea of life, have ...

THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst : The ball game between 'So and 'B2, on Wednesday, September ir, resulted in favor of 'BO. Score 7 to 6. Two sedate Juniors were recently taken for Freshmen, and have gone into deep mourning. A big Sophomore who was absent at the rush, being called upon to account for his absence, said in a demure tone, " Whoso offendeth one of these little ones, it were better for him that a mill-stone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depths of the sea." Cornell:— At the Trustees' meeting in June, Henry W. Sage gave $25,000 to the University. Our esteemed President is with us once more; renewed in health, he brings back to Cornell all the energy, all the devotedness of former days, and more.— Era. The Senior and Junior classes have adopted their constitutions, and the lower classes will probably have followed their example within a week. On Saturday afternoon the contending forces of the Sophomore and Freshman classes met on the Fair Grounds in ...

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. HENRY YE EIGHT, now running at Booth's is undoubtedly the best of the classical Spectacles that has been offered at this theatre. The properties and costumes of the piece have all been taken from originals in Tower of London and elsewhere, and are positively correct. The moving panarama of the City of London as seen at that time from the deck of the Royal Galley, is an exceedingly realistic exhibition and alone is worth going to see ; while I doubt if anything has ever been put on the stage exceeding in beauty the vision of angels in Oueen Catherine's dream. Miss Genevieve Ward acts the part of the injured Queen superbly. The Woolsey of Mr. George Vanderhoff is, I think his best character, and at the close of his address to Cromwell he becomes sublime. Mr. Taylor as the King, and Mr. Levick as Buckingham are fully equal to what is expected of them. Miss Eily Coghlan takes the part of Anne Boleyn simply and gracefully. In fact with the exception of some of the mi...

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 October 1878

THE LIBRARY. WORDS: Their Use and Abuse. By Prof. WILLIAM MATTHEWS, LL.D. This is one of the most instructive and entertaining books we have read in some time, and is written on a subject to which too much attention cannot be paid by everyone who wishes to use the English language correctly. The amount of information contained in this book is wonderful, and all told in a manner so interesting that he who has once taken up the book is unwilling to put it down again until he has read it through to the very last page. At this time, when the study of philology has assumed such an importance, a good work of this character may be considered a valuable acquisition to the literature of the day. We commend a perusal of it to every student and alumnus. Indeed, none who read it can fail to be benefitted by it. (C. Griggs & Cos., Chicago. Price, $2.00.) HOURS WITH MEN AND BOOKS. By Prof. WILLIAM MATTHEWS, LL.D. Another work by the same author, containing a series of exceedingly well...

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

CURRENT TOPICS. TN another column appears an account of the Harlem Regatta, in which is told the story of another of Columbia's defeats. We should have thought that, after our miserable performance at the Metropolitan Regatta, the Boat Club would have hesitated to send out another unpracticed crew to represent the College in such a well known regatta, and against such crack crews as the Atalanta and Dauntless sixes. The eights we undoubtedly had well in hand, and would have won, had it not been for an unforeseen accident. But to row a six that was not picked out until the day of the race, is unpardonable. This custom of sending out scratch crews to row in every regatta that comes along will soon give the College a very unenviable boating reputation. After our late victory at Henley, people naturally look to Columbia for good rowing, but if they see us beaten right and left by unknown clubs, they will begin to think that perhaps our success was not such a great thing after all. It ma...

SECOND OPEN REGATTA OF THE H. R. A. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

SECOND OPEN REGATTA OF THE H. R. A. THE second open regatta of the H. R. A., held on Oct. 19th, proved, except as far as our entries were concerned, a complete success. The only fault to be found was in the weather, for a strong wind blew directly across the course. The races were divided into morning and afternoon divisions; the former, the trial heats, were rowed from McComb's Dam to the Lumber Dock; while the latter, the finals, had the opposite direction on account of the tide.

THE AUTUMN REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

THE AUTUMN REGATTA. IT is with the utmost pleasure that we record this most enjoyable affair. Saturday, Oct. 26th, was a thorough oarsman's day, warm with a gentle breeze from the Southward ; and as a consequence the boat house balconies were filled with New York's fairest, while the Harlem was covered with racing craft of all descriptions, from the frail single to the last curiosity, the "quadruple scull." The races were advertised to begin at 2:15, and almost at the moment the solitary sculler was sent on his way. FIRST RACE —SINGLE SCULLS. W. B. Parsons, Jr., '79 1.

THIRTEENTH FIELD MEETING OF THE C. C. A. A. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

THIRTEENTH FIELD MEETING OF THE C. C. A. A. OUR Athletic Association held its thirteenth held meeting at Mott Haven, on Saturday, Nov. 2nd. The handicapping experiment has been tried, and proved a partial success. Of course, through inexperience, several blunders were made, but next year, profiting by the experience of this, many of them can be avoided—the principal one being putting the limit mark too far from scratch. In the 100, 220, and 440 yards it was about fair; but in the half-mile run, and the two walks, the scratch men had not a ghost of a chance. None of the records were much, as not a single one of our cracks competed, but nevertheless we noticed one or two men who, with practice and perseverance, will in the spring make teazers for our flyers. Notably among these were Moore's half-mile, Taylor's 220 yards, and Lee's pole vaulting; while plenty of good rough uncultured stock comprised the fields. The following summary speaks for itself. 100 YARDS DASH First Heat —This wa...

School of Mines. THE poles and other rougher instruments for surveying will find repose in the new closets adjacent to the assay-room. THE fraternity of Alpha Sigma Chi, of late so flourishing in the School of Mines, has consolidated with Delta Kappa Epsilon. THE collection of comparatively simple models for the use of first year draughtsmen, which have lately made their appearance in the drawing-room were procured by Mr. Pistor from the Delamater Iron Works. MR. AUSTIN G. DAY, the real inventor of hard rubber and of kerite has for some time past been experimenting with the electric light in the engine-room. UP to date, seventy-six men in the first year class, and two hundred and thirty-six in the whole School. Judging from past years there will be additional entrances sufficient to bring the total up to two hundred and fifty.

THE COAL MINES OF ANTRIM, PA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

THE COAL MINES OF ANTRIM, PA. THESE mines, which are comparatively unknown to New Yorkers, are situated in the western part of Pennsylvania, about thirty miles south of the New York line, and are part of the property of the Fall Brook Coal Company. They are located in the wildest, and we may say the most beautiful part of the State, 1600 feet above tide-water, and within a few miles the country is a perfect wilderness, and deer and bears are as plentiful as a hunter could wish. On alighting from the train one is immediately struck by the peculiarities of the place. Save a few miners' huts, there is no indication of a coal mine being near by, and we seem to have arrived in a western pioneer settlement. Enquiring our way to the tunnel, we innocently started to walk into the mine, but soon found that out ol question, as the entrance was only four feet by three, the floor covered with mud, and mule trains constantly passing in and out. So we seated ourselves, with several others, in a t...

The Law-School. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

The Law-School. DR. DWIGHT returned to the Law School after a very pleasant summer trip, on Oct. 21st. His .arrival was the signal for a hearty welcome on the part of the students, which, with the Seniors took the shape of two handsome flower baskets with which the morning and afternoon sections surprised their beloved professor. The latter, in thanking the class for their good will, made a very interesting and able address, in which he graphically described his recent visit to Europe, and especially the Law Courts of England and France. He was much surprised by the fact that the great courts of England, the Queen's Bench, Common Pleas and Exchequer were housed in rooms no larger than half our law lecture-room, but was very favorably empressed by the procedure which he witnessed. We regret that the address was not taken down in shorthand, as its publication would interest many readers beyond the circle to whom it was addressed.
