It scorns but a day since the doors ol
Crolgliton college were opened for the
reception of students , nnd yet not las'
than eight yesirs have elapsed sJneo tlmi
well-remembered ovunt. Kncli of these
years , as they liavo folded Into the past ,
has boon signalized by collcgiato enter
mcuLs which have bcon , In many re
spccts , the marvel of the times. As r
rule , the audiences which have onjoyct'
these intellectual ovonlnffs have
boon of the most representative
chnr.tclcr , and few of the people
composing them felt otherwise than thai
the cause of advanced education , to those
desiring it as frco as thu wind Hint blows
was being excellently subserved.
For Ihooicbth titnu , since the opomnp
of the college , an audience ) assembler
last evening in thu hall of the collegu U
witness another of its colnnioncomcnt ox
ercises. Like its predecessors , it waf
represuntatlve , inlclligont and upprccia <
live. A number of loading oiti/.ons were
present , immediately In front of the
stage sat a number of Catholic clergy'
men , among them being Hov. M. I' .
Uowling. president of the college , anil
Fathers sliaflbl , S. J. , Koopmans , S. J. ,
Kiguc , S. J. , Jeannctte anil Daxachur.
The stn"o was ranged at the back with
a row of email's , in the middle of which
stood an attractive row of books antl
medals , intended for distribution among
the .students ,
HoH'man's orchestra opened with
Schloppegroll'a "Tourist. "
The prologue , an original picco in
rhyme , "What Echo thinks of Crclghton
college , " was excellently contrived , Master -
tor Itodoriok Murphy reciting it in H vcrj
clover niannur , thu answers of the ochc
attracting much attention.
The drill of the elocution class Intro-
uncon in recitations Masters M. 11 ,
Walsh , licrnartl Hollo. Kdward Maginnis
anil Samuel Grace. The oHbrta of these
little follows wore warmly appreoiated.
Poo's "Hells" Phil
was recited by Mc
Millan , assuming the silver , Thos Swift ,
the golden , E. M. McCroary , the brazen
and Harry Cotter , the iron bolls. The
part of each lad was adapted to his voice.
The idea was to inuny unique , and
heartily appreciated by all. The recita
tions wore concluded by an exercise in
unison , Introducing all the voices as it
wore as a chime of bolls.
The College Glee club sang "Moon
light on the Lake , " and to au encore- re
sponded with "Boatman , row mo o'er
the Stream. "
The duet by John Mulick anil Hartnell
Murray , "Tho Harp anil the Willow , " was
most deservedly encored. The alto voice
of Murray was a little weaker than the
tenor of young Mulick , but ho sang with
courage and precision , as indeed did his
companion It was certainly : v vocal gem ,
The chorus "Sunrise" by the St. Cicilia
society was remarkable for the purity ol
the higher voices. Every one of them was
as clear and pure as young voices may bo ,
ypt , above them coufel easily bo disting
uished the belKUkq .sweetness , and clear
ness of tlio voifco' ' d'f 'ii ' 41tllo boy named
Thomas Swift. ' . _ <

The chairman regretted that , owing to
the limited time allowed , the dcbaton
could not give as full a specimen of theii
exercise in elcbating as they would wish ,
How much so "over they wore inclined tc
glvo pleasure to the audlonco , they fell
they could not do so at the sacrifice ol
the patience of the audience. As tliej
could see in the printed programmes ,
the debate was couched In the terms.
"Are Strikes Beneficial to Strikers and
Their Country ? . "
The tirsf , speaker , in the .afllrmativo ,
John Wimlen , contended that they were
Ho did not intend , however , to include
in the list of holiest'workingmcn thai
refuse of nations , that scuih of society ,
tliii socialists or , better , anarchisms. Wore
they given a thought other than whal
wouluplan their extermination or a word
other than would down them to death ; il
wcro too mijoh honor done them. Thoj
would not bo elevated to the rank ol
labor , neither would labor bo degraded
to their plans. With the understanding
that "strikers" wore men of true and up
right principles , seeking to improve then
conditon , ho'hdld ' that strikes wore thoii
only moans of defense. A laborer , in the
first pliioo was a man equally capable as
n capitalist of discriminating uotweoti
right and wrong. The laborer dillercd
from the capitalist only in that the lattci
possessed the advantage of riches , while
the former had all tlio sorrows of the
poor. Should only ono clasi
enjoy the privileges of oui
great government. Both wore
entitled to and should receive thobcuotiti
of freemen. Ono could not enjoy then :
without the other. If the more powerful
stopped over the boundary of justice une
oppress the weak , had not the weak the
right to resist ? Granting that right , il
should bo admitted that tlio only mean.
by which they might resist successfully
was beneficial to thorn , And , ho hold
strikesworo , the only means within the
power of the poor man. The spcakei
then draw n powerful picture of the mis
cry of the poor , stinted wages , long hours
of toll , equalid homes , pale nnd languit
children and the wasting away ol the
wife and mother , who sutlers for the hus
band and father with toar-rcddeneil eyes
yet over hopeful for the tuturo. Wore
not workmen organized would tholr de
mands bo barkened to , much loss respected
spectod ? Whether their rights bo grunted
or not , the fatrlko Is beneficial to them , as
they stand up for justice. And as it was
bonetielal to them , it must bo necessarily
so to the government , of which they form
the solid ilush ami bone.
The lirst speaker for the negative ,
Harry Town , told the audlonco ho was
not a capitalist , yet ho would not defend
the capitalist nor condemn the laborer.
What was the watchword of strikers and
of unions ? "Was it not down with mon <
opolit's , down with capitalists and thoh
corporations ! " ' Suppose capitalists did
go down , what wouui ensue ? Why , such
a depression would follow that those
now loudest in their denunciation would
bo most clamorous for their ro-instato-
niont. Wo had railroads , to every point ,
also telegraph , telephones , and ships and
countless other industries. AU of those
required capital. S liOuld capital then go
tlqwn ? Worklngmou gnlnou nothing uj
strikes , They did not injure the-cprpor-
ntlonq so muck as thtf country , its trade
nnd themselve's. Their plea was poverty ,
they complained of long hours and small
pay , but will thov Improve their lot by n
series of revolts , by overlaying idleness' '
The sneaker then referral to the cast
of twenty men , who , although thc'i '
wages had shortly before that boon'In'
creased , deliberately debated whether in
not they would strike , notwithstanding
that they knew that the employment of r
thousand men depended upon their ac
lion. Ho did not want to bo told thai
those mrn were standing up for1 right
They were not standing up for right ;
withhold them , They simply saw :
chance to raise themselves , oven had the
to take the steps on broken hearts. Thai
poverty existed among workmen cotili
not bo gainsaid , neither could It bo gain
said that the poverty was occasioned lj (
the much abused loni hodrs anil shot
pay. It was a fact tliatnntch of it wti
caused by strong drink and canlcs5siic4i !
in saving. If reformation , were com
mcni'cd ut home , if the surplus use o
boor and whisky were suppressed am
rare nnd economy oxdresheu. imibh of tin
poverty of the workingolnsses woult
take wings and jlv away. TllCiro was
where the strike should begin , ,
The second speaker in the alllrmatlvo re
viewed tlio arguments of thn young mai
who preceded him , anil held nA false UK
idea that organizrtion among working
men conduced to violence ; and mob law
During the recent uprisjhjrs 'In Uhlcngi
resolutions condemning such violence hnt
been adopted by sons of Jabor. Shouli
men of such mould ba-hald clangorous ti
society ? Were they not rather lovers < i
their country ? Now that workmer
reaped tlio golden harvest , who 'cbtilj
deny the beneficial cflectg in both nloi
and country ? Who could object to tht
grand strike which caused John , king oi
hngland , to yield to the united barons
the historical magna charta. Who coult
deny the bonplicial elTects of tha strike ol
the colonists in America against England
the dictator of Iho worla ? Wno wouh
deny the beneficial effects of Ire
hum's urcsont strikewhether or not sue
cessful ? What difference is there in tht
principle of the thing whether the stnkei
is a nation or an individual ? It had bom :
said that all strikes litid not been success
ful , " but ho hold that even when not sue
cessful strikes could not bo otherwise
than successful which originated with r
just causo. One stop , ono rung in tlio ladder -
dor might not be sulllcient to enable the
climber to roach the height desired , bul
oven that rung led upward nnd the lix-
ing of it was neither time nor labor lost
Ono strike might bo the lowest rung in
the ladder of progress , but by pcrsovor
anco the ladder would bo finished ami
the object gained. Who should say thai
with all our strikes the laborer and the
country had not been bonclitted ?
Thomas , ) . Hussoll closed the debate.
His opponent had lost sight of the facl
that capitalists had rights as well as
workingine.il. No workingman would
condemn a fellow worker because lit
sought to secure a homestead. No la
borer would brook that intcrlorcnce
which would interfere with what be
longed to him. If the laborer had the
right to acquire property , ho had the
right to retain it. So had the capitalist.
A\ hat law prevented him from bccominc
richer ? What name would bo applied to
the laborer who would endeavor to pre
vent a capitalist from exorcising thai
right ? It was because they sympathized
with the laborer that they opposed
strikes. All .strikes didn't originate from
real grievances. The remedy for the !
wrongs of workingmcn was * ' tlio "ballot
box. They should secure men for ollico
who would enact laws which would
nlToril ihein protection. Lot workingmen -
men rise in. their might to redress their
wrongs , but lot them rise "at thel righl
time nnd and . ,
placet with-tho-atrong.ami ;
-of power when , thoy. stood-'at lh polls
with the badge " of freemen , "thu "ballot in
their hands. ' * ' ' J
The chairman left each auditor to decide -
cido for himself or herself as to whiohside
had won the debate.
The subject was finally developed , in
so far as the aim of the writers extended !
The arguments , however , were not ex
haustive , the governing idea seeming tc
bo to avoid extremes and - wounding-'thc
feelings of auditors , who of course , mighl
bo found to espouse either side.
Din clearness , and strength and beautj
of language , the debate was remarkable
for such younjr people. It was listened tc
with close attention , and each of the eio-
balers was rewarded by the audience witli
both llowers and applause

"Man is the greatest of nil chemical

In another sot of n million chambers

chemical action thcso nre changed and
purllled in thu lungs nnd the skin. The
blood wo often say is a great livingrlvor ,
In Its current are masses which the all

chalk ; slabs of tartar ; pieces of bono-
ash , strings of albumen ; drops of mo
lasses , and lines of alcohol. How ore- -

strikes a nerve before they will realize
that they have any trouble. They do no (
know that pain concerns chiefly the ex

tain sot of nerves connect these blooi
purifying organs with the brain. Thej
may not gnaw and bite as does the tooth
ache or a scratch , but they regularly
silently report When these organs an
failing these nerves indicate it by draw
ing the blood from the face and cheek
leaving the I'm and eye blanched by send
ing uric acid poison into the smallcs
veins , the skin then becoming gray
yellow or brown. They also prevent

finally comes , its fatal cfi'ect is seen jn r

of human ailments originate and are sus
tained nro the kidneys. They have
not been much discussed in public , be
cause it is conceded that the profession
has little known power over them. What
is wanted for such organs is a simple
medicine which can uo no harm to the
most delicate but must bo of the greatest
benelit to the afflicted. Such a remedy ,
tried and proved by many thousands all
over the world , Is Warner's s > afo euro.
With these in whom eliscaso is deep

prevent death. With its aid Iho great
filtering engines of the system kcoij on

without it they get out of gear , anil then
disease and death open the door and cross
