The annual commencement of Allen
university was conducted last night
with the annual election of the teach
ers. The commencement exercises
hr.ve been In progress for several
days. The graduating exercises of the
college were held yesterday in Coppin
hall. Great crowds of negroes from
different sections of the State at
The most prominent speaker at the
commencement was John Mitchel, Jr.,
editor of the Richmond Plannet
president of the Mechanics and Sav
ings bank of Richmond. Mitchel de
livered the address to the alumni as
sociation. He is a speaker of repu
tation and the only negro member
of the National Bankers' association.
For two years the administration
, of the college has been In the hands
of the Rev. W. W. Beckett, a native
of Charleston. President Beckett's
administration has been very fruitful
and the general opinion in th*
State of the college is good. Dr,
Beckett was a candidate for bishop
In the A. M. E. church at the last
I general conference, which met In Kan
sas City. He held the office of sec
retary of missions and has traveled
, extensively throughout the United
States In the interest of his people,
. He waB unanimously reelected presi
dent of the college. The trustee board
at its first session received from th?
reports of the presiding elders and
. other members of the board $10,300,
which was raised in a special spring
rally for the college.
, Allen university has no endowment
fund. It has a unique scheme
( of raising funds to maintain the col
lege through the membership of the
! A. M. E. church in this State. From
the report of the secretary of int
' board of trustees over $25,000 were
the annual receipts for the scholastic
i The trustees have purchased 54
acres of land near the city for the
. establishment of an annex to the
college plant in which many phases
of Industrial education and agricul
ture in its broadest sense may be
given 'the students. It is rumored
that the board may sell the present
. property of the college in Waverlej
and move the entire plant of the
' school to the new site. Whether this
will be finally agreed upon by the
leaders is yet speculative.

The chemical laboratory has 96
individual lockers. Each stu
dent has his key and is held re
sponsible for the contents of the
locker. There is good space for
four persons, and plans made for
ten. Eighteen persons work in
the laboratory at one time, each
having his own Bunsen burner
on his desk and the water with
in his reach just over the lead
trough that carries the waste |
liquids. All dilute and common
liquid are on the individual shelf,
while those of a more important ?
nature are upon a common shelf I
in an alphabetical order thus
saving the student much time
in performing his experiments.
When he strikes an experiment
that calls for apparatus not iii
his locker, he fills out a borrowed
list and gets the same from the
instructor for the said experi
ment, returning it in good condi
tion when through with it. .So,
the plan is for the student to do
experimente that are given and
the material is always on hand
if it can be had.
The biological laboratory is in
good working condition and
work is now going on in it.
There are ten compound micro
scopes and six dissecting micro
scopes for the use of the college
student. There are slides pro
vided for the students when
fresh material cannot be had.
Regular laboratory tables are
now being placed, and plans
made for charts and maps for all
classes in botany and zoology.
The Physical laboratory is
nearing completion. Already
the gas burners for individual
work have been placed and the
tables are being constructed.
The laboratory is equipped with
apparatus to perform any of the
experiments called for by the
text. The students have done
great work in this department
this year, especially with the
pulleys heat, light, electricity.

the laboratory work, so anxious
is he for the course. If the de
