A New York dispatch carried by

President Taft addressed tho
alumni of Yale, June 30. Some sig
nificance is attached to the remarks
of the president when, after refer
ing to the differences among demo
crats, he added: "Now, my dear
friends, in suggesting differences
among democrats I am far from ig
noring some difficulties tha,t there
are on our side. I remember in

opened negotiations with European aia ina 0Ie or tne essentials of a
"o awoiinueui, wiia an. u,uie, pain
otic and efficient opposition and that
as the democratic party had utterly
failed in reaching that ideal, ho
was in favor of cutting the republi
can party in that place. Now I ven
ture to say that while that may not
be the reason which shall move the
American people, it is true that if
the republican party does not live
up to its promises,, and what tho
people expect of it, it will be rele
gated to a position like that of his
majesty's opposition, and therefore I
may say by way of caveat that we
havo trouble of our own."

Address Orders to THE COMMONER, Lincoln, Neb.
The report of President Hadley of
Yale university for the current year,
discusses tho diminution in the study
of Greek, and Its effect; the possi
bility of combining modern culfure
studies with the old-fashioned re
quirement of hard work; the con
siderations which should govern the
choice of professors; and the pos
sibility of introducing honor courses
like those of Oxford or Cambridge
into the American college. In his
comment on the present position of
Greek, he starts from the statements
in President Garfield's inaugural that
both the language and the method
of instruction have been standardized
(partly because the language is dead
and partly because it has been
studied long enough for teachers to
agree upon a certain fixed order of
reading the different authors); and
The Holliday state-wide prohibi
tion bill, passed by the Tennessee
legislature went into effect at mid
night, June 30. An Associated Press
dispatch from Memphis says: "The
bill makes it illegal to sell whisky
or other alcoholic beverldges within
four miles of any school house in
the state. The passing of the sa
loon, according to advices received
here tonight, was 'marked bv scenes
of unusual hilarity. All through tho
day and up to the very stroke of
midnight saloons and grog shops
were crowded with revelers. Extra
police precautions were taken here,
a patrolman being on duty in every
city block wherein Is located a sa
loon. This Is done at the request
of the saloon men, who feared that
the crowds of revelers would over
step the bounds of good behavior in
some Instances. In the main tho
crowds were good natured. In strik
ing contrast with the scenes of rev
elry in the heart 6t the city, the
state-wide prohibitionists, who had
waged and won ono of the hottest
anti-saloon campaigns in the history
of the state, held private meetings
of rejoicing. There were prayers of
thanks, and hymns of praise in the
hpmea of leading men of the prohibi
tion forces, although no nufilin mcaf.
