Special to Tlie journal.
Winnebago City, Minn., Dec. 9.
This has been a history-making day
for Parker college of this place. Since
9:80 a. m . the exercises incident to the
inaugural of Rev. E . W . Van Aken as
president of the college have been
under wax. The townspeople are at
tending in large numbers and dele
gations of churchmen and friends of
the college from many outside points
Addresses of welcome to the presi
dent-elect were made by representa
tives of thp trustees, alumni, sister col
leges, high schools and other institu
tions. Among the speakers were
President Northrop of the state uni
versity and J. W . Olsen. the state
superintendent. Governor Van Sant
followed with a strong address, and
then came the installation and the
consigning of the keys and charter
and their acceptance by the new presi
The reception la st night was one of
the finest social successes ever known
here. I t was held in the college
chapel by the trustees in honor of vis
iting frifinds and citize ns of Winne
bago- Several addresses were made
on "The Value of the College." Music
was furnished by the city band and
the grand march closed the evening's
The inaugural address of President
Van Aken was the next feature of the
forenoon's exercises and was in part
In the gathering of this assemblage to
do honor to the cause of education, and in
the outburst of words of welcome to which
we have listened inheres a significant fact
a hearty co-operative spirit and interest
along the lines of higher education. Such
an interest evidences a healthy college life
and gives us promises of a future for our
college, progressive and unhindered.
Thruout our fair land, in the newer sec
tions as well as the older, the dream of
educators for a prevailing sentime nt in
favor of a long and thoro course of edu
cation is being realized as never before.
This condition generates an enthusiasm
and consecration in the heart of one b e
ginning a work of this nature, greatly en
couraging to his success.
The future of Parker college will be
what we make it not what any one man
purposes to make it "or tries, to make it.
Co-operation is the watchword of progress
in institutions of so public a purport and
The Christian college takes a view of
education with which all sane-minded
people concur. This view, T take it, is
that the true end of education is the up
building of character, character being
thought of as strongest in him who is best
developed both intellectually and morally.
The modern college is a place for young
men and women of purpose, not a lounge
of repose for prospective "Weary "Willies."
This is a day of rapid progress and in
this very progress lies a grave moral dan
ger. This danger inheres in the vast pr e
ponderance of wealth and Its fruit in en
hancing the material greed of humanity.
The college stands as a protest against
these devitalizing, demoralizing tendencies
of the age.
President Van Aken expressed firm
belief in the sphere of the small col
lege, and considers our state as not
overburdened with Christian college s.
Christian education, with him, is not
of that creed-signing or sectarian in
struction.- I t is the infusion of the
most sacred principles of manhood
and womanhood, of usefulness and ef
ficiency, as enunciated and practiced
by the Man of all men, into the lives
of maturing young men and women,
along with the mental discipline and
knowledge gained in a colle ge course.
From all the signs to be noted, he said,
a prospect for Parker college is found of
brighter, more substantial character than
It has had for some years past. This pros
pect is based upon the realization bv both
local and general constituency of strong
oonstant co-operation necessary
success of a college.
Three addresses were made this
afternoon, a ll of a high, scholarly
character. I t was fitting that Presi
dent Sallmon of Carleton college, who
was inaugurated this year, should
speak on this occasion. His address.
"The World-Wide Christian Student,"
was the first of the afternoon.
J. W . Olse n, "state superintendent
of public instruction, gave the friends
of Parker much encouragement in his
remarks upon "The Small College."
The third and last address, "The
Promise of the New Century'''was,
made by 8. J. Pace of Redwood "Falls.}.
A banquet at the Doud house this
evening will close the installation.
Elbert W . Van Aken was born in
Pittsford, Mich., in 1873. H e began
his collegiate career in Hillsdale col
lege in the fail of '91. Three years'
work completed the preparatory de
partment, and having taught onle year
he entered upon his college ourse
proper in 1895, graduating with the
A. B . degree in 1899, as valedictorian
of Ills class. Early in his colle ge life
he decided to give his life to the gos
pel ministry, and in April, 1899, was
ordained a minister of the Free Bap
tist church. During the four years
following the spring of 1898 he had
The vears 1899 to 1901 were also
spent in completing the three-year
course in theology in Hillsdale divin
ity school. During the la st two years
Mr. Van Aken has been studying in
Union Theological seminary and Col
umbia university, New York city. A t
the last commencement of the sem
inary, May 13, there was conferred
upon him by the regents of the Uni
versity of New York the degree Bach
elor of Divinit y, and at the same time
his residence requirements for the
doctor's degree in Columbia university
were completed. During these two
vears President Van Aken was asso
ciated with R . D . Lord, D . D., of
Brooklyn as assistant pastor.
Early in February he was called to
the chair of Greek and sociology in
Keuka college, New York. About the
first of June, however, owing to the
pressure brought to bear upon him to
accept the presidency of Parker col
lege, he deemed it best to resign his
professorship in Keuka college. The
unanimous call of the board of trus
tees of Parker was accepted and July
14 he began his duties as president.

Free Baptist denomination and was
incorporated in May, 1887. Winne

STRAIN IS TELLING
Two More Riders Drop Out of Six Day
New York, Dec. 9,Nearly all the riders
in the six day race at Madison Square
Garden showed evidence of the strain
wh en daylight came to-day. The sole
topic of discussion in the camps of the
riders was the show of pluck made by
C. D. Barclay who, rather than break his
contract with the management, continued
to ride while suffering from a broken left
rib and numberless bruises which he had*
received in a fall shortly before midnight.
Barclay's pain w as so great that he could
not redch out his hand to take food from
his trainers while riding. His helpers an
nounced without any attempt at conceal
ment that they had given him large doses
of what they termed dope before he re
turned to the track.
Franz Krabs did all he could to relieve
his partner by returning to the track fre
quently. This rapidly sapped his strength
and he, too, was forced to lose some laps.
A t 6:30 o'clock Barclay and Rittlch re
tired from the race. Barclay had then rid
den nearly four hours while suffering from
a broken rib and other injurfes. H e pracr
tically had to be carried to his quarters.

House Has N o Right to B e Consulted
w About Treaties.
Washington, Dec. 9.Senator Clapp
insisted, in the course of a discussion
of the subject in the senate yesterday,
that if the Cuban treaty must be ap
proved by congress, there is no such
thing as a treaty with Cuba. H e said
that in the matter of appropriations,
which, of course, must be made- by
both houses of congress, the h_o_use
has the power to nullify a treaty which
contains a provision for the payment
of money, but the act of the house in
joining in the making of the appro
priation was no part of the treaty
Senator Clapp also entertains posi
ti ve views on the subject of the power
of the president and senate to make
a treaty ceding territory belonging to
the United States, as in the case of
the Isle of Pines, which, it is proposed
in the treaty with Cuba, now pend
ing in the senate, to cede to Cuba.
This subject was brought up in the
house to-day by a resolution offered
by Judge Crumpacker of Indiana,
raising the question whether the pres
ident arid senate have power to cede
territory belonging to k the United
The point made by those who dis
cuss the question from the standpoint
urged by Judge Crumpacker is that
the power to dispose of the territory
of the United States is vested in con
gress, the treaty-making power alone
is not sufficient to make such disposi
tion as oronosed.
