Coi.dwter, Mbh., July 15. For
some monihiback ihtro has been
eenerul opinioo that ti ere is "onio
tbiog wrong with the Uniyertity of
the ttat. There have been tojie
things to wrrnt ttiU report, but
there his never been Dytbing to jus
tify the malicious etatumanis o( ctt
tain partite who are as ignorant oi the
needs o! the scboal ai unqualified to
judge of the wants and qualifications
of those whom they ac.use. There
have been at several limes newspsper
reports of crtain profeswrs and of the
workinns of the university from same
who profdss to be sealons of its Inter
ests, when in fact they were misdi
rected by le'Sinal anJ insane prtju
dice and Imcimnt of the troe cause
of the diDtontent. These rerorts
have bsen too much accredited
by the psrp'e of Miesssippi,
who took .or granted that such
writers wera inlormed and responsible.
Even auch eminent nien com
pose the hone role Board of Trustees
sei m to have lent a too ready ear to
these a well as to certs n persons who
met them personally, and through 1) as
or mis'aken seal, bed more influence
than their knowledge or ability will
justify. Thus the. e was unread over
the Bte the idea that "soouttbiug
mutt be done," and so the board came,
resolved on dolnu something. Ihis
board is composed oftlieableHt inn
in the Mute, but tlio best men will
Aleep, and it is too near fie truth tut
thene men have been taking a Hip Van
Winklo nnoor.0 of about ten yearj.
Tint thB niutturirL'S of the storm waked
than up and heuring the clamor that
tomeihing mmt be done," they be
gan to stiike bef re they fairly got
their eyes open. Vrgt d by the vulg r
cryct a few clamorous vois, thoy
etrock blind'y about until they had
struck out some of the vory bent pro
fessors In the ftiulty, men whosa
places cannot bs tuppliul.
Thu question Is asked now who runs
the univeisity? ThaHUte? No. The
lAigis'aturo? No. The truBtucs? No.
The ficultyl , Thorp never was a big
jjer mistake. It is a number of clnm
orous busy bodies who baveiucceeded
in getting an anicle in the newspapers
or tiave got a hearing w th the trus
tees, and they then yell, "Turn the
rascals out." A lew tf these are stu
dent!, but Invariably of the lower
clnssee, subfreshman, freshman, and
one or two sophomort s. With an am
bitious bitterness that ranks the spe
cies their object is to tear down ; tcoy
E refer to rgn in hell than serve io
eaven. For Instance: Just before
commencement one of the students
approached another who has the honor
of holding np the drooping tail of th
cubfreshman class, and sccostcd him
somewhat thus: "Well, M , are you
coming bick next year?" "No," re
plied the gunt'eman of the rearguard,
with all the grace of bla profession ;
"not unless there's a change in the fac
ility." Now this from a prep., whose
oDlnlon would not attract enough at
tention to bs held in contempt there
where ha is known, vtt would, in a
newspaper, have all the weight of that
ci a ptinosopner.
This Is the wsy it lias been. The
loudest voice is listened to and some
of the beet men and ablest instructors
in the nniversitv. men whose supe
riors are not to be found are 8 nt adrift
because tomi thing must he done. Thus
must the Interests of the s-hool end
: I hone, of the Slate be sacrificed to an-
. pease the fury of this diminutive bark
ing Getbtrus. Beside these mentioned
thort is another clsfB of grumbler?,
doting mother's, who complain o( the
prolesscrs. because their l opelul sons
didn't make the rise. I have known
such who would buttonhole every
man of the boaid and pour into Irs
car the ta'o of their wioiigs with at
much taut and wiih soma have as
niuoh influence as if their sons bad
actually been men of brains.
Of course tbo trustees are not
wholly nsponsiblfl for thms ill re
ports and not wholly for the weight
they havd hud, for they must listen to
some one, as tbey Liivo not them
selves attended any ltcluree, recita
tions, elc., in penon. It unfortu
nately occurred tlmt tbo flist thoy
beard and the hardest tbey heard was
liomsuuh unauthentic sources.
It is uot my businefsto dictate tt
that honorably body what tbey t-lnill
do or to whom tbey shall listen, but 1
would think, if it be uot inunoiliw', for
one of the number to say it, that t e
voice of the alumni who luivo b.-en
with these proftB-ors and 'r im their
experience rf them nro it i meil to
iuuge of thti-av i it p. a id man whom
bo one ou'd feel a deeper iuterest in
the uuiwisty, should be 1 ear J la
. their mtdit-tionssnd wtighedio their
counsels. There has been such ex
pression from a nutnbt r of them, some
in your co limns, but enough cannot
be slid io fvor of some of those men,
so pre ib b ut in scholarship, so able in
inutruc ion and so worthy in their
Christina thirattor. Tin much can
not be said in condemnation of the un
just all cks that have linen made upon
their names, and which It is believtd
bad some wt-ight in the wroog that
wfs doue tbein in June.
T.ien, is there lmpp, er possibility,
c( lnip'.ovii-g matters by a cbaiign?
These men have bten tried, and no
toinpettnt authority tan pronounco
Ibeui anylhing less thnn a sucoeis, but
theie is cer a'uly a chance, and, judg
ing fiom Eonin paet exp.rirr.c8, a great
probability, of getiicg inferior men to
succeed them. Ojo of the beard re
marked ncent'y that mon who rml
ciini iiighly reuoiumi'iiil d had fallen
tl-.oit of expcc'.ation. 11 is now slight
: - ly amueiug t) see thd way HpplicutiouB
nave pouroj in iroin every quaitor,
from men who would l ido their
diminutive bends htfjio the
in ft they seek li replace
. and )et they tome recommended. If
t'aey had as much bri.-,s as bru-s they
might hope to win dittinction.
It is impoisiblo to take by name
thmn pro'eaeors who have been Ihus
without any assignable cause deprived
of their chairs and do jtiKt cs to iluir
abilities I could not extol their
nitrite because my mind could not
re '.eh tbe point tney have won and

One of these is tien. C. W. Stars,
who hs grown oil in the service,
with bis menUl vigor never a whit
impaired. Beyond the consideration
of the distlnguithid service he rm
dcred and the Iofs hesu.taintdfor our
people for he lugs nothirg cow for
cbatity or reward for the pant he hits
that p'-culiar tact of interring
while he instructs, which makes
him so much admired and
respected by every student in the uni
versity. Dr. Little's scholarly att tin

methods, combined with gentral in

him i felicity in t' e leo'd'e room and
reputation abroad which have msd

Dr. Johrson Is a scholar whess con

lnturo jf Mi-s SHipol, in administerii g
the fund granted by the Oorg'e?s of
the United S.ates for the creation aud
maintenance of a univeisity in ihe
State, required the Governor to ap
point a Board of Tru-teej. As th
tfllce is wi houteimlument, it teemed
to tbe Guhernator al mind to be a s irt
of complimen ary affair, enabling Mm
to pay a nes.t ompliment to sundry
dibtingoished cit rons of tbe tta'e,
mostly lawyers rpecialists, however,
who had achieved di tinciion by the
entire devotion of their minds to the
one erg'ossing pursuit, the law. Be
ing unaiulifi' d for the position, their
failure tins not caused surprise, except,
perhaps, in the mind of tbe Governor.
Since this was but an experiment,
another will he in ordor. If the ap
nointin at power should be committed
to tbe people, there is a chance that
competent educates would bo elected
to meet in Oxford annually and guido
and watch over the interests of thd
univorsitv. As thero are no emolii'
moots connected with the position it
would not be coveted by the mers
oflke reeker, aud it is probable that
thoee only who were inters stod in euu
cation would sek the pos'tion.- Should
a trustee be cite ed in esch Con-
?;re8eional district, he would interect
llmself in the boys fr, mi hisdisrict;
would distribute informal on among
parents and exert himself to incretse
the number of pupils. It would cause
the voters Iu sanu d strict to rotliz
that it was their nuivQisity. It t as
been difficult t) eliminate from the
Board of Trnetees the idea tht tbey
had the r g'lts and duties of towu
meetings. Now it is conceded In en
