BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF NEXT COM
Born In Ireland Successful New Yorl-
.Lawyer and Politician -An
Hon. Bourke Cochran, who was se
lected by the cIbbs of '07 as7 their com
mencement orator, wasborn In Ire
3and? February 28, 185-7. He received
Jiis'prellminary education In his native
country, and was then sent to Prance
to completo his jcourse of learning. In
1871, at the age7 of seventeen, he came
to the United States.
Ivir Cochtan at first engaged In the
3rofessIph of teaching In a private
acadorrfy, thfen, as principal of the pub
lic schools in Westgate county, New
"York. Later he practised law in Now
"York city. , Here the young Cochran
found his best field of usefulness In
l)olitlcs. Ho soon became prominent
in municipal politics and in 1884 was
sent as a delegate to the national
.Democratic convention. His uncom
promising fight against Cloyoland
made him a marked man, but so great
was his influence- over his constituents
tliat he secured the congressional
aiominolion and election in 1887. Ho
lield thisofllce for one term, then re
turned to private life for two years,
until, in 1891, ho" was again sent as
Congressman to Washington. He re
peated his brilliant fight against Clove
land in the Democratic national con--vention
of 1892. In 1893, the Con
sresBmanship again fell to-hiB lot. He
filled tills term as efficiently as before,
Tjut the bringing of the issue of freo
silver into the Democratic party in
1806 caused him to change his party
Mr. Cochran's telling work for Mc
Klnley -brought him much animosity
from the Domocrats,but.this was for-
gotten when 1900 found him again In
the Democratic party, this time pn the
Issue of anti-imperialism.
He was elected to fill a specialtorm
in the House in 1904, was re-elected In
1905, and will serve till 1907.
Mr. Cochran Is a man of remarkable
talent and intense virility. His inde
pendence of thqtight and the striking
"eloquence with which he has defended
fhls "positions make him no of the
unique .characters in our present-day
Chatburn's tecture Postponed.
Owing to his Inability to secure a
suitable lantern,' Prof. Q. R. Chatburn
has postponed his illustrated lecture
on "The San Francisco Earthquake
and Its Lessons to Builders." The lec
ture, which was to have beeji given
last Wednesday will bo given next
Wednesday, November 14.
The views were taken by Professor
Chatburn himself and are yery good.
