voto8 than for any truth contained in the
atatomont. How any self-respecting student
can promulgate any such absolutely untruth
ful statomont is more than wo can under
stand. Tho resolution or amendment speci
fically provides that it shall not go into ef
fect until tho dobato of 1897. How, in tho
name of common , sonso, can an amendment
which does not go into offoct until '97, harm
a debater who is debating in 1895 ? If the
good and righteous opposors of this resolu
tion will prove how it does, TnE Hespekian
will gladly cast its vote against tho measure.
With this express provision, that it shall
not effect any student now registered, TnE
Hespekian is in favor of the amendment.
Wo favor it because it is to tho interest of
our association to rotate tho honor; because
nothing will bring us to a more speody wind
ing up of our affairs than to have some one
or two mombors continually monopolizing
the attention of tho public. Tho wise pro
vision of tho State Oratorical Association
forbidding repeaters should bo followed.

Again, in conclusion, The Hespekian
warns you, don't bo deceived by the un
truthful hurt another student argument.
It is safo to say that at least tho students
of the law school, as a unit, regret the senti
ment expressed by some in tho academic
course, in condemning the circulation of a
paper for the purpose of raising money to
assist Mr. Foote in carrying his case to the
supremo court of Oklahoma. Tho law stud
ents came horo imbued with tho idoa that
all men, before conviction, aro entitled to a
fair and impartial trial. Therefore, this
man is entitled to a roviowal of his case by
tho chief tribunal. Were ho tho worst crimi
nal in our land he should bo ontitlcd to this.
It is not necessary to point to tho thousands
of cases which have been reversed by tho
supremo court, to show that thoro is a possi
bility of error in this man's conviction.
If thoro wore no such possibility and if ho is
not entitled to tho benefit of tho doubt, our
judicial system is a failuro and its decisions
but a farce. Instoad of aiding or abetting
crime by signing this paper, ono is doing a
Christian act of charity, by assisting a fol-low-boing
to receive justice and deserves
praise rathor than consuro.
Captain Qullfoyle and the Bon-Ton.
Tho bon-ton, tho elect, tho chosen, the
spotless, tho four hundred, aro in commo
tion. What is tho matter ? Tho story goes
as follows: a certain Baldwin is a tailor, ho
is also a dancer, and president of tho Pleas
ant Hour Club. Captain Guilfoylo is tho
new commandant who has perhaps more
knowledgo of army tactics than precaution.
Not long ago tho now captain remarked that
it was very surprising to him to find a tailor
a mombor of a cultured socioty, tho result
of which has boon that tho Pleasant Hour
Club has administered a rod hot roast upon
tho now commandant.
What comment can wo make on such
tom-foolory? Tho Pleasant Hour Club,
composed as it is of members from overy
honost calling of life, ought to have been
self-respecting enough not to call attontion
to such snobbishness, it givos a bad impres
sion. And wo would suggest to Captain
Guilfoylo. to sit down on a pail behind a Cali
fornia borough and give a small boy a quar
ter to tickle tho donkoy under its fifth rib.
The four winds met
For a trysting place
On a horn of the silver moon;
The salt tears wet
Streamed a-down each face
To u inobt Iugubrous tune:
"Ah woe, ah woe
Its blow, its blow"
"Ah me, ah me,
O'er earth and sea"
"Its go, its go
To blow, to blow"
"And every day
Forever 'n aye"
Mad as March hares
That's what's the matter.
