12 THE HESPERIAN favor of foreign missions. Mr. Speer also met the members of the Volunteer Band and conducted with them a very instructive conference on their work. 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. URYAN-HOLCOMB CLUB. 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. POINTERS. Hot and cold soda at Rector's pharmacy.
