Dwoto Oocbty, Miss., July 3; It
-wm with iRtonlahmeot and mortifica
tion that I read In last Sunday 'a A p
riAL cf the dismissal of five member!
of the facu'tr of the University of
Miwiasippi. For I wag a Undent in
the university from 1878 to 1882, and
have been familiar with the history of
the Institution from that time ti
within a few monthe of the present,
and I know of nothing to excose the
recent ac'ion of the Board of Tros
tee a, much lose to demand such ac
tion. I am not ready to qneetlon the
motive of the board, but they have
been over aealoua to an extent that ia
inexcusable if not ruinous. There
have at timoa been rurauri of ini ub
crdlnation among the studonts and of
lark of tractive discipline on the
Cart of the faculty. Theee have been
itbemainnntiue. But to the extent
to which they were true the faculty
are not responsible. In 1K81 the Board
of Trustee, ia their mistaken xsal,
sent a committee to Oxford which
summoned the senior class before it,
and invited the boys to make anch ac
ctuatlona and criticisms on the faculty
aa they aaw proper. At that very time
all .Departmenta of the institution
were moving in perfect harmony and
order. The faculty were 10 supported
by tbe slndent body tbat ro immedi
ate svils reealtel from this unwise
anH nninnt action of the board. But
the boya began more and more to re
gard themselves the masters of the
faculty. Every grievance, real or Im
aginary, wai to be redressed by the
trustees. "I'll lay the matter before
the board in Jane," come to be a fav
orite boast or threat. The voice of
lander it teems hid found a willing
ear. The olllc'ous and ignorant med
dler outside the university bejaa to
carp, to crlticlte and misrepresent.
The more fearless and conscientious a
Sroleisor was in the d acharge of his
uty, the more exposed wai ha to
these Insidious attacks. Perhaps tbia
goes far to explain the seemingly an
explainable fact that the five beat pro
fessor! in the facu'ty were dlsmiraed.
Us&tlemen of tbe Bwdof Trutt;e,
these men have not merited this treat
ment at your hands. The welfare of
tbe nnivera ty bia not demanded it.
I personally know they bava been
v'.g lent in discipline and auccesafal
in t aching. Tneir effoiti and their
met hods mtt the rfnuiremeEt l of for
mer yean. They have done all that
could be done under the disciplinary
pnwar vested in them. If the yooth
lulnesaor the spirit of insubordina
tion of a nortion of the present stu
dent body demandi stricter discipline,
put the university under military reg
- illations. Do net strike down these
men because they may have failed to
reform the boy who has come to them
an embryo gambler and drnnkard.
This, nnder the present order of
thlrma. cannot be done. If the charge
against them la failure to aid efficiently
in tbe government of the intt tution,
t taenia altntrather inanilicleot. It
ranntt be the puny plra that
the public demands a change
somewhere or in eome way,
lor this Is the reasoning of the rabble,
not of etateainen. Then they mutt be
inferior instructors, or their characters
and reputation before the publio does
not lend stronirlh and dianitv to the
university, or thoir service to the State

them to honor and trust. Let a see,

The claw of 1882 held tbe unanimous
op'nion tbat Dr. Johnson is the
most successful, snd thorough pro

learned anything during cur f ur

little of the man. The man is him
self greater than any position he may

when lecturing on the Ureea. mythol
