oinco the outside of our paper was
printed, another election has taken place
in tho Palladiun and tho events that trans
pired in cannectlon with it, exceeded any
thing, that has heretofore happened in
- pojnt of oxcitement and local interest.
. The facts in brief are as follows: Candi
dates were chosen and the usual amount of
electioneering was carried on even to the
timo President Howard called tho meeting
to order. Instinctively each party had
taken opposite sides of the room and now
eyed each other like combatants thirsting
for blood while excitement closed their
mouths and silenced reigned! but for a
moment,howcver. Then nominations were
made and a vote was taken. Before tho
result was announced votes were chal
lenged, these were followed by others,
and these again by others, until a general
uproar was beginning to prevail. At this
juncture an unlooked-for and unprecednt
ctl circumstance occurred which created
a lull in the storm and good order was re
stored. This was tho withdrawal of tho
two opposing candidates from tho field.
A motion to adjourn was then lo3t. Soon
after this" tho President, fearing another
outbreak, declared tlio meeting adjourned.
About half the members considering this
an illegal adjournment, remained in the
room with tho Vice President in the chair
and proceeded in a cool and orderly man
ner to elect olllcers for tho ensuing term.
The other half, however, did consider; tho
adjournment legal and proper; whereat
they immediately proceeded to an olllcn
in tho city and called a special meeting
with tho President in tho chair. They
also elected dfllcors for the Palludian Bo
ciety for tho ensuing term. Here was a di
lemma. That there were ofllcers enough,
was certain ! Neither party would give
up and they were equal in numbers. It
was finally agreed to leave tho decision to
arbitrators each party to choose ono mem
ber of tho Faculty, and these two to choose
Jtthlrd. Those chosen were Professors
P E. Church, S. Aughey and S. H. Man-
ly. Each party then choso two of its num
ber to present the case, as follows : by those
who left the University, J. S. Dales and
G. A. Watson; by those remaining in the
Hall, W. II. Snell and II. K. Motcalf.
Tliis nowly installed Court was held
on Friday afternoon, and at a regular meet
ing the same evening, tho following ro
port was niado by tho committee and
adopted by the society :
March 21bt, 1878. Tho members of the
Faculty to whom was submitted the settle
ment of tho trouble which has unfortun
ately arisen in the Palladian Society, here
with render decision and make recomend
atlons as follows: 1st. They cannot re
gard either of the elections as valid, lor
reasons which appear to thorn as sufficient.
While they do decline to give an opinion
as to the legality of tho adjournment by
the President, t ?ey are clearly ot the opin
ion the meeting afterward at Dr. Bur. '8
office was unconstitutional. 2nd, That
those members reported as expelled from
the society were realy no more deserving
of expulsion than others not expelled, by
reason of a non performance of duty on
the part of certain officers. They there-
lore reccommenu that all students then m
in the University who havjo been admitted
as members to the society shall meet on
tho first Tuesday evening of next term
and participate in the election of officers
for the society. They recommend further
that the Chancellor of tho University be
invited to preside at such election. The
members of the Faculty earnestly trust
that these unhappy divisions may be speed
ily, amicably adjusted, and all the mem
bers of the Literary Society may work
together in future, zealously, harmonious-
y and unitedly tor mutual ueneilt and
