LAST KVKSIXd's KXKItCISKS.

(ieorge II Williams last evening at his
address before the university.
The exercises opened w ith u highly
pleasing chorus of eighteen v:m-es un

Dr. I D Driver ollered prayer.
Next was a duo for two pianos by
Mi" si's Fiieudly and Miller.
President Chapiimn iu a f-w well
clioseu words introduced Hon (leo II.
Williams, the sH'aUer of the evening.
The subject of his discourse was "liein

was an article prepared by him some
time past, and read before the law i'e

Judge Williams became Intiiiiatily
acquainted with many of the judges of
the supremo court, and was evidently
a close olservier of their customs und
peculiarities. He dwelt minutely on
the characters of the various judges on
the supreme bench for a number of
years. Ho related many amusing an
ecdotes of the various judges with
whom he became acquainted. lhe
supreme court consists of nine mem
bers, n chief justice and eight ns-md-ute
judges. The chief receives 10,. 0
per year, nnd his assoulatts receive
$10,000 each et year. The killings of
tha court are from noon until 4 p. m,
of each day. ,
The discourse, though of an unusual
order, was quite entertaining, and there
were just enough comic anecdotes and
witty quotations to keep the audience
in a good humor.
Today Yilliird Hull was packed with
an audience of J5M) or mom tr, hear the
graduating exercises f the literary de
partment. This is tho principal day
of commencement week, being the
finishing touch to the education orthe
students of this university. lhere
were flowers u profusion today, each
graduate Imviug many friends who
observed this custom of showing ap
preciation. At 10:15 a. m. the class,
numbering eleven, marched up the
hall and took seals on the phitronn.
The exercises opened with a chorus
-one of the sweetest pelces given (hir
ing the week-by the U of O (.lee
Club. , , ,
Kev M C Wire ollered a fervent
prayer, followed by a pleasing piano
du 'it, "pnritunl," executed by Misses
H i vev and Simpson.
President Chapman in his introduc
tiry remarks, spoke of the progress of
the university and Its present stand
ing. The attendance during tho past
wear in the literary department lias
been an Increase of 00 per cent, over
previom years, and the enrollment iu
the first year has Increased 30U per

Spoka on "Nemesis in History." The
fascination of history lies in the tact
that it shows us a supreme intelligence
shaping the dirvctljii of events. This
overruling power governs the universe
by llxed I imh.oii obedience to which
hiini in welfare depends. Violation of
the laws ol nature is always followed
by Mifleriiig. In short "crime and
punishment grow out of one s'em."
The ancients, recognizing the certain
ty with which retribution followed
crime, ascribed it 'o an avenging
power of fate, which they called Nem
ts!s. Since man first sought to hide
his shame from llod the spirit of
Nemesis lias been shaping the outcome
of history. In every ege, natloniil
calamities have been but the working
t Nemesis, (it the ghastly terrors of
the French Revolution France but
reaped what she hud sown. We find
this exemplified also In the career of
the Persian under tfoioiwtel'. 'Ibis

and Kgvpt, corrupted by luxury, fell

dominion brought riches and luxury
to the Pcrg'uns, and soon followed

sturdy tlreeks. Nemesis is not always
Indicative of divine wrath btit is a
divine means toward a dlvlno end. A
perfect architect is rearing in the
world a perfect biiihliiig-the perfected
humanity. Nemesis bus done much
to further man's progress; nor will her
mission be ended till Is brought to pass
"the one fur oil, divine event, toward
whloh the wholo creation moves.

"The Function f th.t NoVspap.'.r I
llreater than to (liveNes." Traill
lion iinlicbtos thCit tho ntrd news Is
derived from the initials that name
the four points of the compass north,
east, west and south. The llrst pur
nose of a newsuMT Is to give news,
lu this all arts and Inventions are
brought into play In its composition;
energy, alertness "and great comprehen
si vene-s arc required. From tho four
corners of the earth are gathered the
achievements of human activity every
twenty-four hours. Hut the functions
of the newspaper are more than to fur
nish news. It must give the philoso
phy of things, the results of happen
ings; it must tell what is cccurrring
and how to prepare for what will oc
cur. Conditions indicate changes and
the ncw-puiH-rls the responsive barom
eter. In all countries the press docs
more than anything else tosecure good
laws; through It the oftlce-hoTders
learn the will of the people; It Is the
administrator of public trusts; It keeps
every part of our wide land a unit un
der the reach of our executive bodies.
The editor is the school muster of the
common people; he is always at his
post alert, eager, high strung the
telegraph pouring upon him tho news
of the whole planet. The newspaper
is an edition of history. In tlermuuy
32 daily papers ate published; circula
tion from a few scon' to 1011,000. The
"Petit Journal" of France, has a cir
culation of over a million copies; in
the United States January 1, 1804,
there were published 1,8.V daily pa
pers, with a circulation of 2,000,000.
Add to this the local papers of every
village and imagine their mighty edu
cational liower. The newspaper's
greatest mission Is that of moulding
public opinion. Compared to It how
ignoble the broadcast scattering f sen
sational news. Against tho uewspa
per neither dognastlos nor government
can stand. Napoleon said, "Four
newspapers were more dangerous than
100,000 soldiers." Lord Salesbtiry has
said: "The editor is fust superseding
the prime minister, and the reporter
the house of commons, in Influence."
The newspaper Is at once the eye, the
ear and the tongue af the people.
The great editor is always la the van.
He is the Columbus of discovery; the
(itilileo of Invention; the Luther of
reform. Ho must bear persecution
and even martyrdom. When tho edi
tor has the cotirngo to lead a forlorn
hope; when his paper will resist the
public for the puliliu good, then will
i ho mtwNQuticr fulrtll its greatest func
tion; then will it become the argus of
the universe, me ear-gauery oi me

the teacher of mankind,
