THE BAND COMPLAINT.
Tho unlvoralty band complains that

Its ubo and aro a dollborato Blight by
(the unhorsity authorltioB. It Is - con
tondod by mombors that tho band, in
'creased in slzo to forty piocos cannot
.bo accomodated in tho room at prosont
Whilo Jt"lB hardly fair to accuso tho
untvorslty authorities of Blighting tho
band, thoro 1b undoubtedly some
ground for 'complaint. Tho room which
Ib now occUpIod is situated directly
under tho stago of tho thoator and
oan bo ontorod only from tho alloy.
This Is a groat objection as tho alloy,
npt any too clean In ploasant weather,
is liable to bocomo littlo moro than a
mlro in rainy woather. Tho room 1b
pot woll lighted and is not flntahod
any moro than tho ordinary collar.
hiB placo, however, Is used merely
as a lockor ropm and for that pur
posp is about as good as tho lockor
roomB provided in tho gymnasium.
Tho stago of tho thoator 1b used by
tho band, for practice purposes.
Tho band 1b supposed to have tho

...Tho band is a very valuable part of
unlvorslty lite.. It is Invaluable as an
aid to athletics and is a very important
paft of tho battalion. For these rea

should bo givon. If tho othor musi

than right that tho band should havo

Reply to Mullen.
"I boo that Mr. Mullen in his ad
dress before tho University Demo

"It alwayB amuses mo to hear the
solicitude of democrats for departed
republicans. Abraham Lincoln was
traduced, slandered, and vllllfled by
democrats during his lifetime, and
now that he is dead and can't de
fend himself he Is canonized as a
second 'Peerless Lender.'
r"lho grave of James Gillespie
Blaine in Oak Hill comotery, Wash
ington, D. C, had for years as its
headstone a shattered oak this was
the request of Mr. Blaine.
"Yet Mr. Blaine was tho greatest
American that ever appeared in pub
lic life, and was twenty years ahead
of his tlmo. He was the beBt equip
ped man who over ran for the presi
dency, at that time.
"William Howard Taft is tho Blaine
"Tho Republican party esteems and
appreciates living statesmen and
revere their dead not by costly
monuments, but by their deeds.
Tho Democratic party never dis
covers anytnlng good in Republican
otatesmon until after they are dead.
"E. E. GILLESPIE, 1890."
THE REPUBLICAN CLUB RALLY
Brown and Williams Speakers of the
The Taft anj Sherman club opened
the campaign last Saturday evening
by a rally In tho Temple, at which
Ned Brown and T. F. A. Williams,
both of tho clasB of 1892, were the
The hall was decorated with Taft,
Sherman .and Sheldon pictures. Taft
pennants in blue and white were hung
about the room,, suspended from u
border of scarlet and cream bunting.
Mr. Brown said that ho did not like
to discuss tho details of thl cam
paign with his university audience,
they had not got far enough away
from basic principles and into actual
experiences as yet. However, ho
thought the practical side of politics
was often .carried too far and tho
principle lost sight of. Ho waB a re
publican because that party tried al
ways to keep ultlmato advance and
tho good of the peoplo in mind. All
men are likely to make mistakes, said
ho. Taft, 'Sheldon, Bryan, all poll
tlclans -and statesmen aro" opportun
ists, andnB humans are liable to err.
T. F. A. Williams told why he was
a republican. Ho had no sympathy
for tho man who could seo no gool
or honeBty in the opposition party.
Ho thought democrats were hono3t
when no campaign 'was op, and ho
had no reason to suspeot' otherwise
during the heat of a campaign. On
the whole, though, as a republican,
he would look with considerable com
placency on the campaign as Jar as
li had gone.

The onglnorlng society will hold its
first meeting tonight at 7:30 o'clock,
In Science hall of the tomple on tho

cussion cf the plans for this year. It Is
Intended by many of the old engineers
to make this tne best yoar since. the
nrganijiatlon of tho society and (hey
hope that everyone interested In any
engineering .mo wJll come out nnd
jlvo their i-osrty support.
