School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 24 February 1880
School of Law. appointment of Judge Dillon to the chair of Real Estate and Equity Jurisprudence, has added another light to a brilliant constellation of talent, and very materially increased the already widespread fame of this institution. It would have indeed been impossible for the Trus- tees to have made a more suitable selection, or one better calculated to strengthen the reputation of the college through the West. We infer from the following statement made by Judge Dillon to a World reporter, that he finds little difficulty in accommodating himself to his new position : " I am much attached.'" he says, " to my college work. Here is an opportunity of building up the greatest law school on the continent, and I trust that New Yorkers know and appreciate, as I have learned to do, the growing greatness of this institution. It is an honor to their city." THE moot courts have become a matter of history, owing to the impossibility of securing volunteer speakers, but the law clubs still...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 24 February 1880
The College World. BROWN : The freshmen have organized a new class society called the Delta Epsilon, and have also started a boating association. The nine are now at work in the gymnasium. The men in training are : Richmond, Winslow, Meader, Ladd, Rose, Dilts, Hovey, John Greene, Waterman, White, all of last year's team ; Verner and Stuart Greene. The Clipper Almanac puts Richmond second in the National batting record, and gives Brown the Intercollegiate base-ball championship for last year, with a record of 75 per cent, of games won, placing Yale and Harvard second each, with a record of 42 per cent, of games won. — Brunonian.

The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 24 February 1880
The Library. FREE SHIPS. By Capt. John Codman. 2d edition. With a review of the plan of Senator Blaine and Secretary Sherman, for the restoration of the American carrying trade —G. P. Putnam's Sons, pp. 54. Price 25 cents. proof that this little volume has been read and appreciated by those who are interested in the restoration of our carrying trade, is the fact that a second edition has been necessary to supply the demand. Captain Codman takes a very sensible view of the matter, and presents his arguments in a forcible manner, showing how England and Germany have taken advantage of the opportunities afforded by our negligence, to build up a trade which was formerly largely in our own hands. We advise all who are interested in a subject of such vital importance to get this book, as they will find in it much profitable reading.
Our Exchages. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 24 February 1880
Our Exchages. \\ 7" E have received The University , from Ann Arbor, and hope that its career may be long and prosperous. The editors seem to have started on a rather thorny journey, however, if we may judge from articles in the Chronicle and from the current number of The University. In the Christmas number, the editor of the Chronicle said, "We most heartily welcome The University to the ranks of college journalism," and criticised that journal in what seemed to us an impartial manner. The University , however, resented the article, and the two journals have since devoted a portion of each issue to giving a parting fling at the other. The University is particularly savage, and in an article entitled " Professional ' Crudity ' vs. Literary ' Culchaw,' " states that a majority of the "lits" are a set of conceited, useless, or innocent beings, whose ambition should be to "rise to the dignity of a book or chromo agency," and says that a "lit." alumnus says of the professional schools,...
Columbia for Grant! [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 March 1880
Columbia for Grant! PARTICULARS OF THE VOTE. CUCH is the verdict rendered by the students at the polls last Friday. In order to obtain the expression of the college on the preferences for Presidential Candidates, the SPECTATOR placed boxes at the college and Law School, and we herewith give the results. It is to be regretted that no account was taken of a man's preference for parties, whether Democratic, Republican 01* Independent. But by regarding those as Democrats who cast their votes for Democrats, and those Republicans who likewise voted for Republicans, taking no account of the Independents, we find that the Democrats number 191 and the Republicans 385. Total 576. In regard to second choice of the 334 students who voted, 67 votes were given to Blaine, the highest candidate on the list, or about 20 per cent of all the votes cast. Sherman is second with 46 votes, and Washburne and Grant each have 29 votes. The following table will explain itself. 75 2 0 * r——t ' £-3 Xp (J O &...
Peithologia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 March 1880
Peithologia. MARCH 5, 1880. THE meeting was called to order by the President, Mr. C. E. Manierre. Mr. Demorest delivered a select oration. r l he subject for debate was, Resolved , " That should the proposed canal be cut through Central America, the United States ought to have control of it." Mr. Carlin, 'B2, opened the debate in the affirmative, followed by Mr. McDougall, 'Bl, in the negative. The debate was then thrown open to the house, and Messrs. Beers, Butler, Demorest, Lloyd, Smith, and Sayre, took part. The point was raised that the wording of the question was ambiguous, and the President decided the interpretation to be, that should the United States not be able to gain control of the canal by buying stock, it would be justified in using force. Mr. Tieman then closed for the affirmative. The closing negative was absent. The President decided the merits of the argument in the negative, and the Society the merits of the question in the negative. The committee on prize essays ...
