IN THE EVENING.
In the ovenlng John P. Irish of Oak
land, California, addressed the gradu
ates in Momorial Hall on tho subject
"Is Goverment a Failure?" Mr. Irish
is one of the prominent men of the
coast state, whero he is engaged in tho
banking business. Ho has taken an
active part in tho public affairs of Cal
ifornia, and is a strong advocate of
clean politics and pure government.
Mr. Irish took for his main theme
the ownership of public utilities and
treated it adversely so as to Bhow why
it is a failure. He said that tho duty
of tho government is to treat both tho
artificial and the natural bodies indis
criminately but held that this is impos
sible under a public owonorshlp gov
ernment. Tho name "artificial" Mr.
Irish applied to private corporations.
In embarking upon public owner
ship the government, he said, could not
fulfiill its political duty and hence
failed to give administration to tho ar
tificial and natural creations. As an
illustration for this statement Mr.
Irish pointed to tho proposed system
of electing senators by popular vote,
which would send men to the congress
with very one-sided views, and showed
how unjust tho government toward the
corporations might bo. Ho hold that i
representative government should be
just in the administration of affairs
both to tho individual and the massed
wealth and said that tho present day
government, not succeeding in this re
spect, is a failure.
IN THE PA8T .
A detailed history of former charter
day celebrations would make what
Josh Billings would call "mighty in
terestin' readln'." To read accounts of
how the students behaved on
holidays back in tho pioneer times
of this state would bo euro to satisfy
tho most sensational of literary tastes.
It was not until the University was
some ten or fifteen ears old that the
anniversary of its chartering began
to bo enthusiastically celebrated. In
the year 1883, when the main hall was
.the only building on tho campus and
the student body was small and thoro
ly democratic in spirit, tho Palladlan
Literary Society closed tho Charter
Day oxercjses with tho minstrel show
that proved a matter of so much dis
appointment, not to say disgust, to
the State Journal. However much
unfavorable comment this Ethiopian
entertainment may havo occasioned
from the press at that time, it seems
to have been in thoro harmony with
tho democratic spirit of the little
pioneer college. This little vaudeville
consisted of multitudes of jokes, puns
and songs, stale and otherwise, of the
burnt cork order, which called forth
varying opinions concerning their mer
its and demerits.
Upon another occasion the burlesque
entertainment that closed, the day's
exorcises was brought to a sudden
close by a heated dispute between 'the
performers and a part of the audience.
A fow members of the audience made
bold to chargo the performers, who
promptly vanished thru an upper story
window, and descended by means of a
rope previously arranged for such an
emergency. The evdnlng's entertain
ment ended hero and there is no fee-
