Missouri University Commencement
Columbia, Ma, May 83. Considera
ble excitement has been occasioned
among the church circles of Columbia
by the announcement that the com'
mlttee of the faculty on commence
ment programs has decided to have all
of the -''ting exercises of the unl
versity In the day time, ao as to set
apart the commencement week for the
various society balls and other social
events. The president and members
of the faculty have been severely
criticised for thus arranging to make
every night of commencement week
one of dancing and revelry.
Yesterday all the ministers in the
city by special agreement, preached
special sermons on this subject con
demning the action of the faculty.
They regard the giving up of com
mencement week to dancing and rev
elry as a dangerous precedent, and
they will seeklo prevent a repetition
of this next year by denouncing it in
tbe most scathing terms.
NO HOPE OF A COMPROMISE.
Tbe Kansas Miners' Strike Certain te De
Pittsburo, Kan., May 23. All ef
forts to arbitrate the differences be
tween the executive board of the min
ers' union and the mine operators
in this city have so far proved futile.
The conference proposed for Sat
urday was not held, and both
parties to the contest are now
convinced that the fight is on to last
an indefinite period. Arbitration is
the ultimatum issued by the executive
board, while the operators are enunl-
)y firm in their decision to deal with
tne men on individual basis only.
The strike has already crossed tha
Kansas line into Missouri. The miners
at Minden are reported this morning
as being out The strike is not ex
pected to extend beyond this, how
ever, until the official edict la issued
by President Walters declaring that
it is necessary for the good of the
cause in Kansas to stop all commercial
shafts in Missouri.

Itoiamapolis, Ind.,May 83. Lnclns
B. Swift, the noted civil service re
former, to-day gave out a copy ot
the report of the investigation
of the Terre Haute postofHca
affair, copies of which were
sent to the president and post
master general, it chargea a conspira
cy to effect the entire partisan recon
struction of the office in manifest
evasion of the laws. Part of the con
spiracy was the attempt to bribe
Postmaster Greener to resign, made by
Crawford Fairbanks and the
threat by John E. Lamb
that aensatlonal charges would be
filed against him if he did not resign.
The chargea were filed and Donham
was appointed. Meanwhile a civil
service examination had been fixed for
Terre Haute for Miy 5, but it was im
portant that t Ins should not take place
till Donham l id been enstalled. Of
this the report says:
Charge were preferred against tb local
board of eiaminers upon the ground that such
board was so partisan In It character that aa
Democrat would apply for examination.
A a matter of fact the board wa
composed of men of high character, of
fair and honorable reputation, and do attempt
will ever be made to specify or prove the
charge. Upon these charges the civil service
commission postponed the examination for
one week and provided that it should take
place on Hay 1 , IRtfi
Donhum's commission arrived May 13. He
at once demanded possession and refused
to obey Instruction from Washington,
directing that the offlo be turned over
to him Saturday. He occupied tbe office
by force and served notice of dismissal oa
all carrier and all elerk except three In di
rect violation ot law. He now alleges that
this wa done aubjeot to approval of the de
partment Moreover Donham declared that
he did not think much of the civil service law
and wanted to avoid tbe euu.t of the law, but
did not defy it.
And we respectfully sub nit for your
consideration not only tbe . -vallty of all
these appointments and ren.u.j' "4 tbe
necessity of providing for apu. ..-ienta
