The promised hydrant does not seem to material
ize and those students who are compelled to stay in
the building for thegieater part of the day are under
the necessity of going down town for a drink, drink
ing luke-warm water, or going without. Some ar
rangement ought to be made immediately by which
students could be supplied, withoi t so much trouble,
with this necessity.
About the most pleasant of news which has circu
lated among us for some time is the success of the re
gents and Gov. Thayer in -procuring the prolongation
of the term for which out Lieutenant has been de
tailed to this University. Lieut. Dudley has served
his second term here, and in that second term has
built up his department so well, and has won the es
teem of so many students that all felt saddened at
the prospeet of loosing him just as the armory, for
which he labored so hard, was finished. By the terms
with us till September, 1888', not long enough, per
haps, to enjoy the full fruits of his labors, yet we, and
we hope he is also, are pleased that his term has been
lengthened even that lung.
The question was recently asked, "How many
trees lo the square foot on our campus?" We could
not answer it, but realized that there were a jreat
many trees upon it. Has it become" so that Arbbr'Diy
should bring around with it the planting of numerous
trees without reference to the actual need of them?
It seemed that every space of ground which would
allow of a tree space of two feet would be filled with
a young tree. It is a fact that if all the trees grow
which are now planted upon our campus, there will
either be stunted trees or a good deal of grubbing to
of the letter recently received, the Lieutenant stays
The editorials of the New Republic and the clip
ped article in the State Journal 'concerning the action
of certain University professors and the student vo
ters in regard to the recent city election, has excited
no little merriment among those who understand the
real facts in the case. It is true that a meeting of the
student voters was called, but not by any professor or
through the instigation of any professor. It is true,
also, that two professors spoke at that meeting,but on
ly as stating opinions, and it is a mistake to say that
one of them declared Mr. Sawyer was a prohibition
ist in principle, to catch the prohibition vote. He
did state, however, that Mr Sawyer was a temper
ance man and advocated temperance principles, and
he plainly stated that Mr. Sawyer would not, under
all probability, attempt to carry out prohibition prin
ciples. Furthermore, there was no pledging done
on either the part of the professors or on the part of
the studenis, and the result of that meeting was the
adoption of a resolution favoring the election of Mr.
Sawyer, leaving the rest of the ticket untouched.
'I his is not considered by the students, nor can it be
so coi-sidered by any, as interference, or an attempt
to whip the students into line for any party favorites,
on the part of the professors.
The latest movement of the faculty in insisting up
on the proper use of the halls has certainly many
things which recommend its wisdom to all thinking
students. They have been misused and that, shame-
