favor of foreign missions. Mr. Speer also met the
members of the Volunteer Band and conducted
with them a very instructive conference on their
Mr. Holmes, formerly exchange editor of the
State Journal, and who for the past year has been
traveling in Europe in the interests of his profes
sion, addressed the cl iss in journalism Thursday
morning, October 4. His remarks were chiefly
upon English and French newspapers as compared
with American newspapers. He mentioned the
marked conservatism of English papers, saying
that commonly three or four lines are all they
venture even on the report of a murder or suicide.
Verbatim reports of trials, of sessions of parlia
ment, and of speeches, however, are continually
given. No Sunday papers are known. In Eng
land and on the continent very little is done in
the line of telegraphic reports. Journalists pre
fer to publish "Ancient History" rather than make
mis-statements through over haste.
The democrats and populists of the University
turned out great in numbers and great in enthu
siasm Saturday evening, and organized a Bryan
Holcomb club, electing the following officers:
President, S. H. Martin; vice-president, W. W.
Wilson; secretary-treasurer, O. H. Allyn; sar-geant-at-arms,
J. H. McGuffey. A few rampant
" pops " lead by Messrs. Brown and Hale, who
had turned out with the intention of knocking
out fusion and turning down Bryan were prompt
ly and effectually squelched, not, however, with
out considerable debate and filibustering which
the malcontents made against the adoption of a
fusion constitution. Pres. Martin, in taking the
chair, characterized the club as a "unique gang"
which extremely fitting appellation met with the
good natured laughter of an erstwhjle "scrapping"
but now united club.
The Camera Club met in the Chemical Labo
ratory Tuesday evening, October 2d, and listened
to an exceedingly interesting talk by Prof. Bar
bour on Experiences Photogrophic in the Bad
Lands. H. A. Senter's resignation as president
of the club was received and the place thus left
vacant filled by R. S. Hiltner, the vice-president.
E. C. Hardy was elected vice-president. Several
new members were received and plans of work pro
posed and discussed. Work is to begin at once
for the annual exhibition, which is to excel,
both in quality and quantity, all previous
exhibits. It is desired that all amateur photog
raphers become members of the club. Give your
name to one of the executive committee, the mem
bers of which are R. S. Hiltner, E. C. Hardy,
Rosa Bouton, Prof. Barbour and Mariee Gere.
Come to the next meeting, sign the constitution
and pay the annual fee of fifty cents. All mem
bers who wish to get photographic supplies at
reduced rates will find it to their advantage to
consult Ward Hildreth or E. C. Hardy in regard
to the matter. At the next regular meeting,
which will be held the first Tuesday in Novem
ber, there will be an exhibition of lantern slides by
Prof. Barbour, Mrs. Canfield and Mr. Hardy.
This exhibition will be a treat and it is hoped
that every member of the club will be present and
bring friends with them.
