BIG STEAMER GOES DOWN IN 14 MINUTES Managing of Towns Is Recognized Profession Washington, D. C.- Preaident Wil ton and two i^embers of his cabinet, Secretaries Bryan and Daniels, parti cipated Thursday in the formal open ing of the American university, the Natoinal Methodist Episcopal school located on the Potomac heights over looking the nation’s capital. Bishop Earl Cranston, of Washing ton, presided nt the ceremonies, [held on the university campus and attended by thousands of educators and church men from all ;«arts of the United States. The late President McKinley and Colonel Roosevelt laid corner stones of buildings for the university, which was projected 26 yearn ago by Bishop Hurst. “Scholarship, it seems to mo,” said President Wilson in his address, “is the mastery, the exact mastery, and comprehension of great bodies of knowledge, and the comprehension is more difficult than the mastery. It is much easier to acquire than it is to interpret, and yet all knowledge is dead which is not interpreted. The vision of the scholar is worth OHM «•> the world than his industry “It is knowledge, pn>|>erly interpre- tated, seen with a vision of insight, that is uniting the world, the spirits of the world.” The President old an anecdote of Charles Lamb, who said he was never able to hate any man he knew. "There are races whom we dispisc, ” he added, “and it generally turns out that we despise them liceause we do not know them. We have not found the same common footing of hu manity with which to touch and deal with them.” Secretary Daniels described the navy as a great university and empha size«! the fact that patriotism an«i re ligion have always gone han<l in hand.

It will hear the clear call that Wesley heard at Oxford arxl put all learning and science under contri bution for the ofiening of doors of help and opportunity to struggling men and women.” Bible Study in Schools Asked by Presbyterians Chicago A resolution favoring th«* study of the Bible in the public sclxsils and urging churches to petitoin state legislatures for the passage of the nec essary laws to bring about the desire«! reform was adopted by the general as sembly of the Presbyterian church of the United States of America. Another resolution, urging the es tablishment of a permanent tribunal of arbitration at The Hague, with a view of abloishing future wars be tween nations, was a«lopted. The assemblage exchanged fraternal greetings with the Protestant Episco pal church of the diocese in Chicago, in session here. The use of grape juice, or “non alcoholic wine,” in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper was recommended in a supplemental re[iort from the commit tee on temperance and the report was adopted by the assembly. The reorganization of th«- Is/ard of home missions was accomplished when the report of the standing committee was ailopted. It provides for an in crease from 24 to 30 members, that the headquarters should remain in New York and that the work of the lioard shall be divided into four or more de partments, tentatively listed as the executive or administrative depart ment, the department of church exten sion, with headquarters in the West; the department of immigration and social service and department of finance. Synods and presbyteries are to have supervision of home missions in their own territory. Elk Herd Is Nuisance. Seattle, Wash. — State Game Warden L. H.

The Federal authorities will ship the Startup herd to Oregon if the beasts can be corralled. It was supposed that the animals would browse in the moun tains, but instead they have come down to the river bottoms, seeming to know that they were proctected by law. “Eugenics” Mo 'e Opposed. Baltimore- The American Medico- Psychological association, at its annual convention, refused to go on record as favoring hygienic marriage laws. The resolution adpoted by the conucil of the association recommending the en actment of laws requiring a clean bill of health and evidence of a normal mind before issuance of a marriage li cense was tabled by a large majority. Resolutions recommending the segre gation of the feeble-minedd, imlieciles and the establishment of separate in stitutions for their care, were adopted. Depot at Detroit Hurns.
