On Tuesday morning tho students met
hi the chapel for the last time to hear the
results of examinations of which some
were encouraging and some not. Regents
Fitlokl and Holmes were present and ad
dressed tho students. Regent Filiold
spoke to them concerning the government
of tho University, refening to the late
dissatisfaction in the military department,
lie thinks so long as tho Regents stand at
tho head of tho institution U103' must see
that the rules aic enforced, and when the
legislature thinks bobt to place the gov
eminent in the hands of the students
dents they will willingly step down and
out. His remarks were received with
much applause by the students. Hegent
Holmes also spoke on the same subject.
In the afternoon the cadets assembled on
tho campus in presence of the Kegonts
and a largo assembly of people gathered
to witness their last parade. Lieut. Dud
ley, assisted by his able corps of oHloois,
very plainly showed that thoy had not
been drilling, these mouths, for naught.
After successfully executing several move.
meiiLa in tho manual of arms, squad and
company drill, they had a miniature skir
misli battle witli blank cartridges.
Ok tho evening of May 29th ex-Chan,
cellor Benton lectured in tho Opera llouso
for tho beneilt of tho IIesi'Eman Stu
dent. His subject, "The American OilL
zon," was handled in an interesting and
instructive manner. For an hour and a
quarter the Chancellor held the close at
tention of the audience. He held that
the division of the world into nations is
wise and necessary. He dwelt on the vast
resources of our country, tho enterprise of
the Anglo-Saxon people and the diffusion
of wealth which prevails in our midst.
Antagonistic factions are necessary to a
vigorus national existence, yet, thorough
nationality must be maintained. The
greatest danger to our country is not, as
some have thought, the barbaric feature
of western immigration, but is found in
communism and corporations. Tho
study of foreign tongues should not be an
essential part of common school Instruc
tion. The vital question is whether re
ligion and Sunday observances need give
place to liberty and progress. Faith,
freedom and fraternity should be tho
motto of the American citizen. At the
close of the lecture a portrait of tho Chan,
cellor, tho gift of the students, was pre
seated to him by Mr. McKesson. Tho
lecture was not so well attended as it
should have been, and those not present
missed a rare treat.
Akteh tho exhibition of the Union So
cicty, on Tuesday eve, the Seniors and
Alumni met at the Commercial Hotel for
the purpose of having a social time, sup
per, etc. J. S. Dales with his usual
llowery and well chosen language deliv
ered the addiess of welcome. The Al
umni and those who were to deliver thoir
graduating orations tho next morning
were now seemingly bound together by
the strong bonds of kindred. Having is
sued from the same Alma Mater, each
striking for his ideal of successful life
they now signify by this meeting their
