CHICAGO, June 11. Ambasador James
Lryce delivered the convocation oration at
the graduation exercises of the University
of Chicago today. The subject of the ad
dress was, "What University Instruction
May Do to Frovlde Intellectual Pleasures
for Later Life."
After the awarding of degrees to the grad
uates President Judson conferred upon the
Erltlsh ambassador the honorary degree of
'doctor of laws.
The an.bassador opened his address by
commenting upon the fact that production
And transportation all over the world have
been transformed by science and, he as
serted, the effect of science la also strongly
fp't In education. '
Sixty years ago, ha said, sciences was not
given a prominent part In the curriculum of
schools and universities, and now It Is try
ing to relegate the study of language and
literature to a secondary place. In some
parts of the world, he aald. It la becoming
necessary to Insist upon the Importance of
the human as opposed to the natural or
I ask you to Join with ma In considering
the value and helpfulness to the Individual
man of scientific studies and of literary
studies, respectively, not for success In any
occupation or profession, nor for any other
gainful purpose, but for what may be called
the Enjoyment of life after university edu
cation has ended.
Two Bides to Education.
All education has two sides. It Is meant
to Impart the knowledge, the skill, the hab
its of diligence and concentration which are
needed to Insure practical success. It Is
also meant to form the character, to Im
plant taste, to cultivate the Imagination and
the emotions, to prepare a man to enjoy
those delights which belong to hours of
leisure and to the Inner life, which goes on.
or ought to go on, all the. time within his
Every one of UC ought to have a second
or inner, life over and above that life which
he leads among others for the purposes
of his avooatlon, ba It to gain money or
, power or fame, or be It to aerve his coun
. try or his neighbors. He ought to have
soma pursuit or taste to wnicn he can turn
from tha dally routine. Whatever the
taste ' or pursuit may be, whether of a
higher or common type. It la good for him,
. but of course the more wholesome and
elevating tha taste or pursuit la ao much
the better for him. '
The speaker then asked Ma hearers to
consider tha question of what can ba dona
,. by Instruction.' In haturaj .aclqnoa. and wh&t.
instruction In tha human or literary pur
suits can do to instil such taetea of suggest
pursuits. Tha human subjects, ha declared,
are best fitted to nourish and Illumine tha
Inner or. personal life. Poetry and tha
imaginative treatment of human themes,
ha aald, where potent In this direction.
Deduces Practical Lessons.
"The practical lessons I would deduce,"
' said Mr. Eryce In closing his address, "are
that, tha ardor with which tha atudy of
tha physical sciences la now pursued for
practical purposes must not make us forget
that education baa to do a great deal
mora than turn out a man to succed In
' business. In tha second placa ' students
must remember that la tha atudy of lan
guages and history they must beware of
giving exclusive attention to the technical
philological work and to purely critical In
quiries. Nowhere In tha world does thera
aeera to be so large a proportion of tha
people that received, a university educa
tion as hsra in America, The effects ' of
this will doubtless ba felt in tha next gen
eration. Let us hope that they will ba felt
not only In tha complete equipment of your
clllsens for public life, and in their warmer
seal for clvlo progress, but also In a true
perception Of tha essential elements of
happiness a larger capacity for enjoying
t those simple pleasures which tha cultiva

WASHINGTON, June 11. A case of
more than ' ordinary Importance to the
Puget Sound territory was heard today by
tha Interatate Commerce commissl6n. It
whs that of tha Pacific Coast Lumber
Manufacturers' association and other lum
ber organisations In the state of Wash
ington against the Northern Pacific, the
Great Northern, the Oregon Short 'Lino,
the Union Pacific and fifteen other mltway
companies. The complainants allege that
tha defendanta refuse to establish for
thelr products a through route via Port- j
land. Ore., betweefc ports In western i
Washington and points In ' Wyoming. I
Colorado. Nebraska, Kansas and other !
polnts In tha middle west but require
them to pay local rates on ehtpmonts to
Portland, the shipments there to ba trans
ferred to other care for shipment to des
tination on tha rata to destination from
Portland.- It also la alleged that de
fendant lines refuse to Interchange cars
and that they do not furnish enough cars.
The petitioners assert that tha lumber
Interests In Washington are suffering be-
....... h.i iHim. . -
causa of their Inability to secure trans-
portatlon facilities for their products, al
though other classes bf freight are hand
led by the railroads with no more delny
than la Incident to natural conditions.
Tha complainants ask the commission
to compel the defendants to establish
through routes and Joint rates via Port
land and to make such other orders aa
Well facilitate the transportation of their
business. .One of the difficulties. Is the
lines of tha Harriman system refuse to
change these cars with the lines of tha
Hill system because of differences of the
two heads of tha companies. On tha eon-
trary It Is urged by tne raliroaas tnst
they have been unable to supply the
censary cars to transport the lumber traf-
fc, because tbetr Increase of equipment
unavoidably haa not kept pace with the
development of tha lumber Interests in
the state of Washington. .
The case is ' lrne of the first to be
brought before the commission under the
provision of the new rate law whl(h re
quires, carriers to establish through, route

PUT DICK BILL IN EFFECT
Governors Requested to See that Its
Provisions Are Followed.
MEANS MUCH TO NATIONAL GUARD
Acting- Secretary of War Calls At
tention to Reqalremeate of State
Militia - Before Appropria
tion Become Available.
WASHINGTON. June 1L-Actln Becre-
UrT of wr Oliver Jiaa addressed a letter
""-iy"g governors or states and territories
th,t on January 21, next, under the terms
of th militia act, the mllltla organls-
atlon must conform to that of the regular
and volunteer armies of tha United Statea.
He auggeats that the governors take ths
necessary steps to secure such conformity.
Says General Oliver: "Failure to meet
this statutory requirement will result In
debarring a state from the , use of tha al
lotment of tha annual appropriation ' of
13,000,000 for the eupport of tha mllltla,"
Tha act requires that the number of reg-
,. .. , . .
marly enlisted, organised and uniformed ac-
.. . .nm- . ., . . . wv .
each senator and representative of each
state. General Oliver suggests to the gov
ernors previsions for enactment by tha leg
islatures In brief as follows:
"Tha definition of tha dutlra of the ad
jutant general and his assistants and tha
quartermaster general and hla aaslstants.
"Provision for the necessary ganeral of
ficers and for a staff made up of adjutant
generals. Inspector generals. Judge advo
cates general, quartermasters, subsistence,
medical, hospital corps, pay, engineers,
ordnance and signal corps.
"The guard must be divided Into divi
sions, brigades, regiments, etc., to conform
to the regular army organisation, reserving
to the government the power of reorganisa
tion and to make tha companies and num
ber of officers . assigned to organisation,
correspond to the regular army."
The new law will have a far-reaching ef
fect upon the national guard of the coun
try for In very few statea do the organisa
tions at present correspond with those of
the regular service. The most Important
change required will probably ba in the
great Increase In the number of men In
camps and regiments for It is a fact that
in many states so-called regiments of
mllltla Instead of being 1,200 strong, as they
should be to meet modern service demands,
number" scarcely more than a battalion, or
800 men, and skeleton companies are every
where in evidence.

NEW YORK, June 11. Anounoement waa
made today that Howard' Gould Is consider
ing ths advisability of starting a counter
suit for separation sgalnat his wife. Such
an action, ha thlnka, would lessen ths
chancss of Mrs. Oould's obtaining a court
. OBCI.M for alimony of 2280.000 a year. One
j or ur. Gould's friends Is quoted today as
; saying that Mr. Gould would be willing to
j set aside a sufficient sum for tha support
of his wife, but that ha certainly would
not entertain ths demand for 2260,000 a year.
Ha thought It likely that Mr. Gould would
be willing to give his wife S10O.0OO a year
alimony and fait sure that Mr. Gould would
consent to settle the ault on that basis, al
though Mr. Gould had never aald so di
rectly. Briefs of the argument between Deiancy

Hughes today vetoed the bill Instituting
a flat passenger rate of 2 cents a mile on

In his veto message, the governor pointed
out that the passsge of the bill waa tjot

suitable Inquiry. Nor Is the fixing of this

The governor also said:

"It Is of the greatest Importance not

that they should be permitted to operate
under conditions that will give a fair re

The senate today passed the New York

republican voted to sustain the veto. The

BOISE, IdarV, June 11. Tim attack of tha
Haywood defense on the testimony of
Harry Orchard goes on unremittingly, and
the witness will probably be continued on
the stand for two full days more. Orchard
withstands the strain with remarkable
fortitude and at the end of six days shows
no Indication of mental or physical ..eg
ging. This day began with the story of the
dynamiting of Fred Bradley In San Tran-

determined effort to expose several festnrea

' ht Plnkertons. Then the
play went back tb Denver for the winter
of 1904-06 and the spring that followed, and
there was an extended effort to show that
Orchard had practically no communication
with the leaders of the federation; that ha
received no pay for the Bradley crime or
anything else, and that with Steve Adams,
In a period of extreme poverty, extending
over a period of several months, he waa
reduced to the necessity of stealing a sheep
from the Olohevllle stock yards that ha
might have food.
Orchard Denies Poverty.
Orchard to a laughing court room seri
ously confessed that 'lie stole the sheep,
but stoutly denied that It was because of
want. He Insisted that all through that
supposedly hard winter and spring he con
tinued to draw money from Pettibona
through Adams, and explained that If ha
did not see .the federation leaders often It
was because he wss lying low to avoid
capturee for previous crimes. This Globe
vllle Inquiry developed a more shocking
crime. At this Denver suburb there was a
diabolical plot Orchard swore It was In
spired by Max Mallch, the defense claimed
that Orchard was Its author to dynamite
a boarding house where ISO nonunion men
lived, and In preparation for1 the murder
on bloc Orchard, Adams and a man named
Joe Mahallch broke Into two magazines
and stole 600 pounds of dynamite, which
they lugged home at night and buried In
their cellar. Tha crime was abandoned.
Orchard aald. In one of those flashes that
make his testimony remarkable, because
Haywood Intervened and forbade him te
have anything to do with R. -
Carrying out the' lines of testimony to
how that ' Orchard, regardless of tha
great hold which it is presumed he had
on the federation leaders, was frequently
without finds, tha defense showed that
from late in 1908 until tha middle of
1(04, Orchard continually drew strike
relief t Cripple Creek and then dramati
cally invited Orchard to explain tha In
consistency to the Jury. Orchard replied
that Haywood. Moyer, Parker and Davis
all advised him to continue to draw relief
because if he displayed money he would
excite suspicion. ' .
- Attempt to Kill Peabody.
Tha examination next covered a review
of the early attempt on the life of Gov
ernor Peabody and the making of tha
bomba to kill him, and tha plota against
Judgea Gabbert and Goddard, with an
effort everywhere to lighten and cat
doubt upon the testimony of tha witness.
Orchard told a dramatic story of tha first
attempt to assasslnata Peabody n early
morning drive through the snow to place
the bomb and await for the victim who
waa spared by tha unexpected appearanae
of two coal wagons that, coming from an
alley way were driven across the trigger
string at the moment that Peabody was
croaslng tha mine field.
Orchard brought Mrs. Steve Adams Into
play today. He said that while he and
Adams were watching Judge Ooddard's
house Mrs. Adama went with them a cou
ple of tlmea aa a blind to divert suspicion
from them. Mrs. Adams, who had a seat
among the witnesses, laughed when Orch?
ard told the Incident.
Orchard who confesses that ha hesitated
at no crime and took a hundred desperate
chances In those committed made an inter
esting contribution to the psychological
study of Ms personality when he called him
self' a coward. eH said ha was too cow
ardly to openly kill Judge Gabbert; aald
that he regarded all hla assassinations as
' In five minutes today Orchard showed
mora emotion than any time since he began
his testimony. It was when the defense.
In a roughshod digression, asked him If
ha had not deaerted his Cripple Creek
wife, stripping her of every nickel aha had,
and leaving her In poverty, that Compelled
the sals of her waahtub to buy bread.
Orchard's lips quivered and with tsars near
he falteringly denied that he had dona ao,
and said that federation leaders had prom
ised to care for her In hla absence.
Details of Bradley Crime.
By noon today Harry Orchard under
cross-examination, had described In detail
the explosion at the Bradley residence In
San Francisco and was giving tha partic
ulars of the attempt in Denver to aasassl-
, nu aovernor Peabody and Supreme Judge
i Gabbert of cJbiorado, in December, ISO,
