crowded with Btudents .and faculty
members who camo to hear tho great
reformer. Although ho clalma to bo
no orator and Just talks, the strong
personality and sincere meeeago held
the closest attention from the begin
ning. Tnking as Ills subject "The Unrest
and Difllcultles of tho Nation Today,"
ho told the story of his own life and
his experlonco In lighting graft In San
Francisco. Beginning as a boy he
worked In lIs father's sugar refinery,
where ho had a chanco to lenrn the
methodB of corruption. Tho sugar

the factory and break tho machinery.
Mr. Spreckles statod that he had be
come acquainted with graft and Its
methods by buying Into tho corpora
tions and becoming a director, and
not by examining tho books. The gas
company was corrupt and ho fought
hard for decent business principles,
but was unable to do anything until
he wrote to all the stockholders and
camo Into a meeting with proxies
enough to put every corrupt' man off
tho board. This, ho said, was what
started him In his war against graft,

do it and furnlshe'd tho money were
set free. Ho spoke of other Instances
