PHOf. ROSS VINDICATED
Tha TrofeMr of Fourteen Universities
Investigate the Matter and Declare
Great for th Economist.
When Professor uoss was dismissed
in November, he made a statement in
self-defense to the effect that his opin
ions on silver coinage, coolie immigra
tion, and the ownership of public util
ities had displeased Mrs. Stanford. On
the basis of this statement, the news
papers brought the charge that free
dom of utterance was suppressed in
Stanford. The university authorities
thereupon denied the allegation, and
said that Professor Ross had not given
the true reasons for his dismissal. As
a result of continued controversy over
this point, the American economists at
their meeting in Detroit appointed to
investigate the subject a committee
consisting of Prof. E. R. A. Seligman
of Columbia. Prof. Henry W. Farnam
of Yale, and Prof. Henry B. Gardner of
Urown. This committee, after exam
ining a large mass of documentary evi
dence, has concluded that Professor
Ross utterances on economic ques
tions were what troubled the mind of
Mrs. Stanford, and led tohi3 dismissal
and after long and patient investiga
tion they have made the following re
port: The evidence which we have been
able to obtain indicates clearly also
the following facts:
(1) The causes which led to the
dismissal of Professor Rosa existed in
(2) Although the dismissal of Pro
fessor Ross may have been occasioned
by his published statement of Novem
ber 14, his resignation was practically
forced by the wish of Mrs. Stanford.
This fact is distinctly stated in the re
port of the alumni committee of in
vestigation, which report apparently
has the run Indorsement of the uni
"(3 Mrs. Stanford's wishes in the
matter were expressed as early as
"(4) The delay in the acceptance of
Professor Ross' resignation was due
to an effort on the part of President
Jordan to overcome Mrs. Stanford's
"The question In regard to which we
have been called upon to express an
opinion is: What were the reasons
which led Mrs. Stanford to force Pro
fessor Ross' resignation?
"Two classes of reasons have been
"(1) Dissatisfaction on the part of
Mrs. Stanford with Professor Ross' ex
pressions of opinion on questions of
economic policy, notably in regard to
the free coiago of silver in the cam
paign of 1896, and more recent ly in re
gard to coolie immigration and muni
"(2) It has been asserted or sug
gested that Professor Ross has mad3
statements before his classes reflect
ing upon Senator Stanford, that he had
shown himself selfish and lacking in
loyalty to the university, that he was
erratic and frequently overstepped tho
bounds of academic propriety in the
manner of giving expression to his
opinions, that his publication of No
vember 14 was a violation of confi
dence, and that there are facts which,
if disclosed, would reflect upon his
"While it is, of course, impossible
for us definitely to determine what
facts or reports of supposed facts may
have weighed with Mrs. Stanford, the
evidence in the possession of the com
mittee seems to justify the following
"U There is no evidence to show
that Professor Ross gave occasion for
his dismissal by any defect in moral
character. On the contrary, President
Jordan states in his letter of February
7 to the committee: 'No ground exists
for any interpretation, of his dismissal
reflecting on his private character.';
"(2) There is no evidence to show
that Professor Ross gave occasion for
his dismissal by incompetence. On the
contrary, President Jordan , stated in
a letter of May, 1900, that he was 'a
careful thinker and a patient investi
gator,' 'a constant source of strength'
to the university, an 'one of the best
teachers, always just, moderate and
"(3) There is no evidence to show
that Professor Ross gave occasion for
his dismissal by any unfaithfulness in
the discharge of his duties. On the
contrary, President Jordan stated in
a letter of May, 1S00, that 'he has been
most loyal, accepting extra work and
all kinds of embarrassments without
a word of complaint,' and that he was
'a wise, learned and noble man, one
of the most loyal and devoted of all
the band' at the university.
"(4) There is no evidence to show
that in his published statement of No
vember 14 Professor Ross violated any
confidence reposed in him. On the
contrary, in a letter of December 24,
Professor Jordan states: I wish, af
ter conversation with Dr. Ross, to
withdraw- anything I may have said
implying that he had knowingly used
confidential material, or la any other
way violated personal proprieties in
making his statement.'
"(5) Concerning the point that Pro
fessor Ross gave occasion for his dis
missal by remarks derogatory to Sena
tor Stanford, your committee finds, in
a statement by Mr. C. F. Lummis, in
the Land of Sunshine, dated Christ
mas, 1900, the following passage:
"The precise words Professoj Ross
may have u'sed I do not know, but I
do know., that, tie has stated in his
classes in Stanford many things which
his students; understood to be reflec
tions on Senator Stanford; and I know
also that Mrs. Stanford -firmly be
lieves that he did slur her husband's
"In the Independent of February 7,
1901, Mr. Lummis repeats his charge,
ruoting Mrs. Stanford's reasons for his
dismissal. . . . 'He has called my
husband a thief.' ;
"The committee also finds that Pres
ident Jordan, in a letter of November
16, 1900, states:
Mr. Keesling informs me that he
and others of the alumni have heard
you in your classes condemn the means
by which Mr. Stanford became rich, in
such a way as to make it clearly a per
sonal reference, and that some time
last year Mrs. Stanford was told this
by a prominent alumnus, Mr. Crothers,
if I understand correctly.
"In a letter of the next day, however.
President Jordan retracts this by say
ing: 'Mr. Crothers tells me that he
has never mentioned the matter in
question to Mrs. Stanford. I was not
sure that .1 understood my informant
to say so. , .
"Professor Ross, moreover, at the
time unqualifiedly denied all such
charges, and insisted that statements
to this effect are 'a thorough-paced
falsehood and a disingenuous attempt
to befog the ,real issue.- In another
place he says: 'The charge, from any
quarter that I have ever made remarks
derogatory to the character of Senator
Stanford isfalse;; absolutely without
foundation.' In a subsequent letter he
states: 'I have never referred in a de
rogatory way to Senator Stanford, nor
have I reflected upon the manner in
which he accumulated his fortune.
Both my. sincere respept for the sena
tor and my sense of the proprieties of
my position forbade anything of the
kind. i , . :t,.
"Moreover, that this charge could
not. have been, a determining cause in
President Jordan's acceptance of Pro
fessor Ross' resignation, is shown by
the fact that,i in a letter of November
16, two days after his dismissal, Pres
ident Jordan says, in reference to these
charges: 'I never heard anything of
the sort before.'
"(6) There is no , evidence to show
that in the opinion of the president of
the university Professor Ross, in his
utterances on; the silver 'question, on
coolij immigration, or ; on municipal
ownership, overstepped the limits of
professional propriety. On the con
trary, Jordan stated in May, 1900, that
his remarks on coolie immigration and
on municipal ownership were in accord
with the drift of public sentiment on
those subjects,' and that even on the
silver question 'he never stepped out
side of the recognized rights of a pro
fessor. f .
"(7) There is evidence to show.
"(a) That Mrs. Stanford's objections
to Professor Ross were due. in part
at all events, to his former attitude
on the silver question, and to his ut
terances on coolie immigration and on
municipal ownership; and
"(b) That while the dissatisfaction
of Mrs. Stanford, due to his former at
titude on the silver question, antedated
his utterances on coolie immigration
and - municipal ownership, her dissat
isf action was , greatly increased by
these utterances. . -.-.
"As to (a). This is shown by the
fact that President Jordan at first at
tempted to deter Mrs. Stanford from
taking any action for such reasons,
stating, In a letter of May, 1900: 'I
feel sure that if his critics would come
forth and make their complaints to me
in manly fashion, I could convince any
of them that they have no real ground
for complaint.' President Jordan,
moreover, intimated that to dismiss
him for uch reasons would be im
proper In the extreme, for 'no graver
charge can be made against a univer
sity than that it denies its professors
freedom 'of speech. v -
"As to (b). This is shown by the
fact that not until immediately after
delivery of the coolie . immigration
speech did Mrs. Stanford force Profes
sor Ross resignation, as well as by
the fact that in a letter of June, 1900,
President Jordan stated: "The matter
of immigration she (Mrs. Stanford)
takes most seriously.' " '
"In the, same letter, while Mrs. Stan
ford's objection Is declared to be due
to the fact that the reputation of the
university for serious conservatism is
impaired by the hasty acceptance of
social and political fads, it is added,
that these 'local criticisms which
weighed with Mrs. Stanford 'unfortun
ately are based on chance matters and
obiter dicta, not at all upon your ser
"We have not deemed it wise to pub
lish in full the letters upon which we
have based our conclusions, but we
stand ready to publish them if such
a course is necessary to establish the
truth in this matter. '
"We are. aware that owing to the
failure of President Jordan to give
definite replies to all our questions,
there may be important facts with
which we are unacquainted. On the
other hand, we cannot but feel that a
refusal to, furnish specific information
in a case of such importance in which
it is charged that the freedom of
speech is at stake is itself a fact of
significance, which, to say the least, is
much to be regretted.

All the evidence in- the case was sub
mitted to the leading economists in the
various universities in the United
States and in connection with their
own report the committee publishes
"The undersigned have examined the
evidence submitted by the above com
mittee and believe that it justifies the
conclusions which they have drawn:
John B. Clark, Columbia university.
Henry C. Adams, University of Mich.
Frank W. Taussig, Harvard university.

After reading the above report and
the testimony of the professors in
fourteen of our greatest universities,
it might be well to reflect upon the ac
tion of the two little republican re
gents of the Nebraska university. You
will feel like going off and having a
little quiet laugh all by yourself.
The University of Nebraska will ob
tain, more credit throughout the whole
scholastic world by having employed
Dr. Ross than by any other thing in
its whole history. The only trouble
is that it will hardly be possible to re
tain him here. The great, highly en
dowed universities can pay three and
four times the salary that we can here.
We have only been able to retain some
of our best professors by their refus
ing to take larger salaries in other uni
versities and have remained out of love
for our great, free institution. It now
steps to the front rank. It will draw
students from every state in the union.
It is the one great institution that
dared to come to the defense of aca
demic freedom and the professors of
the United States, whatever their be
liefs and private opinions, will never
forget, that fact.
Hurrah for the Nebraska university!
May it ever be the home and defendei
of free thought :

Ways and Means Committee
- Secretary De France of the ways and

recently sent out are somewhat more
encouraging. This letter was mailed
on the 20th to 489 prominent populists
and fusionists men who in the past
have done good work in their respec

Adams, Antelope, Boone, Burt, But

selected and mailed to first to decide
the question of whether the letter
should be sent sealed or unsealed. And
since then the work of mailing to
workers in other counties has prog

the letters being mailed on the 23d,

Out of the 489 persons addressed, 33

te- squarely in the face, and acH
It seems a little strange to The In
dependent that $2,300 cannot be
raised by 113,000 fusionists in thirty
days. A month ago we predicted that
the debt would be . cleared up by the
first of March. We were mistaken. The
taxpayers who were benefitted by fu
sion economy in state government are
surely , willing to contribute each ac
cording co. his ability; but the hjtbit
of '.'putting off" till a more convenient
time and the great amount of labor
required to send all a personal letter,
renders the ways and means commit
tee's work a difficult task.
The IndepenJent has been wa.tcb.ing
the work of the ways and means com
mittee, and believes that every reason
able effort is being made by it to col
lect funds. We had Intended to
preach a short sermon on the evils of
procrastination but will wait an
other week for developments. In the

THE RECORD'S INFAMY
Its Washing-ton Correspondent Denounced
. by Members of Congress as an,.
. Odlou Talslfler. - ?
Washington, D. C, Feb. 25,' 1901.
Editor Independent: Our attention has
been called to an article copied in your
paper; and 'credited to the Washington
correspondent of the Chicago Record,
concerning Senator Allen and his ac
tions and condition on the occasion of
the announcement of the electoral vote
in the house of representatives on the
13th Inst. i
The article referred to is a tissus of
malicious and outrageous falsehoDds.
The joint session was held in the hall
of the house of representatives. , The
room was very much crowded and the
senators marched in, coming down the
center isle of the hall by twos, the vice
president pro tempore, walking arm in
arm with Senator Allen, heading the
line of senators.
We were all proud of the position ac
corded Senator Allen on that occasion,
it being a post of honor; he having
been selected by the vice president pro
tempore for the reason that he was one
of the senators from Bryan's state and
represented - the opposition : party.
Senator " Allen conducted . the vice
president pro tempore to the speaker's
stand, presented him to Speaker Hen
derson, and then retired to the au
dience and took his seat among the
other senators where he remained
throughout the entire proceedings.
No telegram was handed him by any
s :r (Continued bn Page Six.)
