BASKET BALL SOGIETY.
Much interest bRS been manifested
lately at the State University Basket
Ball. The young men's team has been
organized for some time and has had al
ready several games with outside teams.
Week before last, tbe young women un
animously elected Miss Loime Pound
ss captain of their team with power to
choose her players. a
Everyone who has been interested in
Basket Ball among the young women
this year, appreciated the difficulty of
Miss Pound's task. There was no lack
cf material from which to pick an excel
lent team the difficulty, was simply in
cBOosi&g six strong players who would
work well together..
There was considerable excitement
among tbe young women as to the
choice ct the players, not only for the
'vanity, but also, for the recond team.
Those chosen were: For (he first team,
Kicks Helen Welch, Bertha DuTeil.
Lojisa Pounc, Harriet Ccoke, Marie
Beach and Marie Kennedy. Also as all
aroand player on first team, with title of
capttin of second team, MjebRoeb Long.
The young women onljie second team
aw, Misses EleoDora Miller. Daisy Bon
sell, Anna Tritsch, Ida Taylor, Mabel
Dempster and Alberta Spurck.
The two terms had tbeir first practice
game on Thursday, 13th. Particular
stress was laid on calling fouls. The
score resulted 8 to 5 in favor of the first
team which played at the disadvantage
ct having one of its towards absent. At
-present the second twn excels the first
in gocd throwing, and has just as skill
The victory of the first team seemed to
be due only to the fact that it bad the
4d.raT)t8go in strength and enduraace.
Tho joucg wemen expect to have
several matches in the future and hope
to sake social as well as athletic events
of them, incidentally serving a luncheon
to the visiting players and inviting a
throng of patronises.

during the same period the suite lias
received In cash from convict labor
$14,0375:1, or $3,394 03 more than has
been expended. The same record shows
that of the $60,000 appropriated for the
maintenance of prisoners for the two
j-ears ending March 31, 18JH), there has.
already been drawn 812,891.19. As
suming that the report is correct and
that it costs only $338 per month to
maintain each convict, whatdisposl
tion has been made of upwards of
$12,000 that has Leen drawn frcm M12
appropriation and more than $3,000
that has been received from labor
above the expensa of maintenance?
Here is an apparent deGciency of up
wards of 810,000 which should be re
ported upon and explained. The leg
islative investigating committee was
organized to give pops pap and manu
facture ammunition to be expended in
future political campaigns, but it ap
pears to have made a mistake in its
report on the penitentiary.
The statement in tbe New York
Journal that 3Ir. Bryan is not of so ,
much consequence as Bryanismcrea'.eS
a desire to know just what Bryanism
is. It is a new word and has not yet
achieved the distinction of being
spelled with a small letter. It means
one thing to Mr. Bryan's Farty- It
means a good many other things to
republicans and to gold democrats. To
silver republicans, democrats and
populists Bryanism stands for the peo
ple vs. power of various kinds. It
means income tax, government owner
ship and operation of railroads, tele
graph, express matter, banks, and
other things thereafter to be evolved.
It means a man is a man if
his trousers are not creased
and if they are pinned up around
the ankle by a brass pin and a'
tbat and a' that and finally it means
that if all men arc not born free and
equal, legislation is going to make 'em
so. To gold republicans and demo
cratsthere are no gold populists
Bryanism means repudiation, a danger
ous stirring up of discontent and ambi
tion in the laboring classes, a leveling
of barriers supposed to have been
erected by God himself, rank socialism
and anarchy, the suppression of the
rich, the destruction of manufactur
ing and manufacturers, contempt of
the supreme court, carelessness of all
precedent, and unfettered radicalism.
Between these two interpretations of
bryanism there is another that recog
nizes that that democracy which began
to develop what time the first com
munity was conscious of the power of
united action has not yet flowered.
The selfishness and strength of the
few has been throttled by a few revo
lutions only to begin to grow again at
the point where violence stopped
growth. Those who recognize the
potential energy of democracy are un
willing to charge Mr. Bryan with
creating class hatred. They recognize
that he arouses the spirit 6r democ
racy which has slumbered not, for
nearly nineteen hundred years and
which in a few thousand, it may be a
few hundred, years will overcome all
forms of monarchial, plutocratic and
oligarchical forms of government.
Mr. Bryan has only thrown himse?f
into the current and by doing so, got
tbe current called bryanism. It has
come from a dim past and it is still
further to the ocean. But the ocean
is there and the river will empty into
it and neither Bryan nor any one else
can stay tr hurry it.
