their recent annual lestion, will aires:
the attention of every able student
and alumnii", and is en'itled U tbe
earnest consnleta'.ion of the friends
and pairoosof the university through
out the 8 a e. It comes from an old
student, lung eoouiih separated from
the icflae nces cf. a student's life, to do
impartial jufctice to bis old profeisors,
an i to fully appreciate the many and
perplexing difficulties and the grave,
ever txittioa teiponsibilitiea of tbeir
po itions. He evidently feels tr bo
declaies tbat the trustees have com
mitted a great, inexcumble, lulnom
mistake seemingly withoat Buflicient
cause that the university will seri
omly sufler from the less of , the five
. ableit aod mort experienced of ita
prolcssois, and he pleads for their
reinttatement wilh great force and
earnestness, springing from a personal
knowledge of an efficient and faithful
dischatge of all their duties during
the lour years of his collrge life.
Indeed, what be claims for each and
11 of their eminent ptofetsOrs would
be cheerfully conceded by every wof-
, ehtf n n.l.tit of'lK-irs in cast years, and
their hearts 'swell' "with becoming

like trne patriots, faithful to tbeir

and thev will receive theuuivenal
thanks of tho neoDle. whose repre

their best Interests, the future welfare
of the grand old univer. ity. It was
anoihir crisis in the history of the

trustee tor their action, satisfied notb

the university will survive thie, as
she has survive 1 and prospered after

equals of their predecessor, thereby
securing onte more the good will, con

have a liaht to petition tbe trus'ees
whenever they please and tbe trustees
have a right to do as they please In

tbat the people find fault with the

failed yesterday, mak. s tbe following
Btemtnt as to now mat even as
rouuht about : "When the Board of
Directors counted tbe cashier's reserve
fund, two weeks ai;o, preparatory to
derlring their dividend, ibey found
$40,000 in the bank vault. The night
atchman informed me last evening
that Mr. Thomson entered the bank
builcing on Sa urday evening at about
10;30 o'clock, and it wae tnen un
doubtedly tbat the f ashier jalted $15 -000
of the fund in bis pockets, end the
n ate t iurpr.se to me is that lie aid
not appropriate toe rett of it. ine
fint discovery of this shortage was
made last Friday by me, and ic cime
about like this: Mr. Strain, the acting
nreaident of tho bank, on that cay
came to my place of business and in
formed me tnat tne aireciors nau just,
loaned Thomson $8500 on 100 shares
of the Crystal Plats Glass Company's

he did not show up Monday my lears
received a eubstii-tiai actnowioag-
ment of his crookedness, i wer.t to
tbe bank and by means of amiiro
rcope detecied very plainly that the
