The attendance at the joint debate in
Union Hall the evening of November 2nd
was not so largo as the promoters of the de
bate desired. The snow storm, prop, socials,
Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the advene report
from the Kansas City foot ball game, cut
down the crowd at the debate to a half house.
But the debaters had the satisfaction of see
ing that none of those present demanded the
return of their admission fee when the debate
was over. The question was, " "Resolved,
that state legislatures should consist of one
house only." .Lambert, Williams and others
of the Maxwell Club, spoke on the affirma--tive.
Branch, Searson and other Unions
spoke on the negative.
The general debate was witty and divert
ing, Maxwellians and Unions alternating
in pounding each other into the earth. Mr.
"Wilson told a story of a whale it was. a
"whale," which prompted Mr. Abbott to re
ply that lawyers invariably tell yarns when
driven into a corner. One Lung, the China
man, was lugged into the debate and his
heavenly virtues extolled. Mr. Cramb
kicked foot ball with his customary vigor,
and put in some solid shot for the affirmative.
Hayward, McGuffie, Kinyon, Neal, Baker,
Kuhlman and Short made telling speeches
and received merited commendation.
Mr. Branch created considerable merri
ment by his closing speech in which he dis
cussed with much vigor some phases of
Nebraska politics. "When ho reached the
climax of his eloquence and shouted, "I
remember Patrick Henry," the effect was
appalling. After a few words from Mr.
"Williams in which he reminded the audience
what was tho question under discussion,
President Cain declared tho meeting ad
journed. As one of the boys remarked after ad
journment, "these here things are sort of
interesting." Accordingly other debates will
be held between the clubs during tho school
year. The embarrassment incident to the
first debate having passed, subsequent de-
bates will be held in the chapel if it can be
secured, and co-eds will receive invitations
tendered on silver salvors.
