Last night the chapel was crowded
so that standing room could hardly
be found for the late comers. The
academy graduates held their exer
cises last night, and thoy proved
very interesting. After music by
the orchestra, Rev. Dr. Hines of
Portland offered prayer, and Mrs.
Kraus.se, Misses Moores, Scriber and
Moores rendered, on two pianos,
Wollenhaupt's Grand Concert
March, by Berg.
Then followed an essay, "The
Stage" by Miss Acta Forrest; oration,
"Development of the Mind," by
Chas. T. Lowrie, both full of
merit, followed by "The Roll
Call," bass solo by W. H. Bagley,
accompanied by Miss Forrest. L.
R. Greene took "Law" for the
subject of his oration, and did very
well with it. Miss Lottie D. Ben
nett read an essay on "Overcoming,"
and this was followed by music by
tho orchestra. Harvey Bend's
oration, "Our Nation" was full of
patriotic sentiment, and R. M
Hester discussed "Education for a
Special Purpose," in which ho set
forth some excellent precepts to his
class fellows. Mrs. J. H. Strickler
then sang "Di Qua! Soavi," by
Donizetti, in her usually excellent
manner, and Jns. S. Van Winkle
delivered an oration on "Station."
Miss Carrie Gleason read nn essay
on the "Progress of Civilization,"
after which Mayor Murphy was
called upon to present tho class,
thirteen in all, to Hon. J. D. Leo of
Dallas, for their diplomas.
Mayor Murphy recounted, in n
short but interesting speech, how
the class, after much valuable time
and effort in acquiring knowledge,
had now reached that degree of in
tellectual attainment that entitled
them to receive these diplomas.
That these evidences of the result of
their labors hau already been pre
pared, and to him, as the executive
head of the city, had been assigned
the pleasant task of aiding in their
formal delivery. The mayor recited
how much more potent a factor In
the restraint of crime and uphold
ing of good government, were tho
schools and colleges, then tho courts
police forces nnd jails. "Students,"
he said, "have neither tho time nor
inclination to Indulge in riotous and
boisterous acts against the peace of
the land. Hence those crowds that
wo see day after day marching from
tho jail to the police court, nnd from
tho police court back to tho Jail,
never include them." After a few
words moro of praise, encourage
ment and admonition, the mayor
presented tho class to Mr. Lee, who
responded in a very fitting way, and
then as the class was called presented
each witli a diploma. A cornot

Thcro is lots of kicking on the
streets to-day at tho action of tho
council last night in its proposed
reduction of tho police force.
Economy is a good thing; but this
is considered very poor economy.
The forco had better bo increased, is
tho verdict of all business men to
whom the matter was referred by
the writer, to-day, now that the
city is without lights at night, in
tho interest of proper protection of
property, both from midnight
marauders and fire. An olllcer
should be stationed at the university,
too, these evenings, to guard the
decent people of the city from insult
at tho bauds of a crowd of hoodlums,
mentioned before in theso columns.
Last night, the stile posts were
found covered with tobacco spit, the
work of these nico young boys ono
referred to by the way, asked this
paper to-day to deny that it was
he. Another action of the council
only causes Riniles among the citi
zens. That is their repeal of an
ordlnanco by a viva voce vote of the
council, Instead of by another ordi
nance. This was tho ordinance re
lating to the city attorney. Tho
council will likely be surprised to
hear, notwithstanding tho motion
and Its adoption repealing tho same,
that the ordinance is still in force
and that Attorney Bingham can
still draw his salary.
Last night, several communi
cations were presented to tho city
council concerning our volunteer
fire service, and while all bear more
or less merit, it cannot be seen that
that honorable body paid very
much attention to them.
One was from W. F. Dugnu, of
Capitals, asking the council to take
some action to provide teams for use
in pulling engines to fires. This is
almost an absolute necessity, espccl:
ally in the case of CapltinVmid I
such niggardliness as the council
once displayed In this mattor was
absolutely criminal. Ten minutes
of time saved in getting a firoengine
to a single fire would be likely to
save to the city property of suffici
ent valuo to pay the expense of
teams for a whole year. Arrange
ments should be made for keeping
the tennis in the engine houses.
The insuranco companies doing
business in this city, have applied to
tho department to have all appa
ratus, hose, etc., tested, and this
should bo done. A bursted section
of hose is always a cause of tho loss
of much valuable time at a fire, aud
bad hose, etc., should bo condemned
before, rather than after a fire.
Chief Churchill informed the
council that the pressure obtainable
in tho 38 hydrants of the city ranged
between 00 and 80 pounds, and that
the pressure would be always sulllci-
ent it people would tako tho pre
caution at an alarm to shut off
lawn hose, faucets, etc., and ho sug
gested that the water works bo con
nected with tho lire bell, so that tho
engineer would have immediate
notice of a fire, and put on the
necessary pressure. If this would
help matters, it should be done at
once. An electric fire alarm service,
however, is what this town should
have. Referring to tho lowered
pressure from the continual running
of garden hose, tho council might
pass an ordlnanco requiring theso to
be shut oft at night, under penalty.
A good many improvements might
be made in our fire service, which
would aid It In many ways.
Tho conservatory graduating class
this year is W. II. Bngloy, Jewlo
Dalrymple and Knto D. Roynolds.
The commencement exorcises this
morning wore very fine, and wore
llstenod to by a large number of
people. Following whs the program.

All item in yesterday's paper spoko
of a lot of hoodlums who gathered
at tho university, and stated that
they were undor tho leadership of
a young man aged about 20 years.
While the young man meant was
at the place nnmed at tho time, it Is
evident now that ho was not com
mitting any of tho acts claimed,
but was talking to a couple of
friends. Tho parties who were
engaged in tho Insulting remarks
constituted a different party of
young men, and our informant
probably was mistaken when lie
picked out tho young man as the
