The first of a series of joint debates
between tho Dellnn boys debating club
and the Alpha Omega society of Doane
college was held In tho chapel Friday
evening. The question of tho justice
of British action In the Transvaal was
carefully discussed by representatives
of both clubs, with honors about even.
Tho audience was large and gave
strict attention to tho speakers. H.
A. Butler of Doano presided. The
speakers for the Alpha Omega, who had
the affirmative, wero G. C. Snow, A.
w, Taylor and R. C. Vance. The De
Han club was represented by W. Mor
row, R. Sampson and C. W. Jones.
G. C. Snow opened the debate with
a brief history of the Boors and the
rights England, under international
law, had acquired over them.
Morrow followed for the Doliong
with a re-statement of the history of
the South African republic, and ar
gument to prove that the Boers were
able and should be allowed to govern
This argument was attacked by A.
V. Taylor, who said that the Boers
were not only ignorant, but brutal;
that their treatment of- the Kaffirs was
wholly unwarranted and that for hu
manity's sake if for no other reason
the Boers should be subjected to the

and 1884 were binding; if England
had acknowledged the right of the
Boers over all international govern
ment, then clearly England was in the
wrong in attempting to force the Boers
to grant citizenship to outsiders. Be
sides the men who wanted to bocome

itants engaged in gold mining and
whose only aim was the getting of
The next speaker, R. C. Vance, gave
some time to rebuttal and then spoke
of England's liberal treatment of her
colonies and her influence as a factor
in advancing civilization.
C. V. Jones closed for the negative.
He summorized the argument of his
'olleagues and gave a detailed account
of the Jameson raid to show that Eng
land desired not citizenship, but con
trol of the country.
For the affirmative G. S. Snow had
five minutes for rebuttal. After re
stating England's alleged rights over
the South African republic, he Hosed
with a description of England's fair
treatment of her subjects, and the hon
est desire of the Englishmen to se
cure citizenship in the Transvaal.
The next meeting of the two clubs
will be held at Doane college some
time In January.
