lancellor Holland Rives Diplomas to the
2ILLIAKT SCENE IN CARNEGIE HALL
After four years of intellectual toll and
ouble the fair maids and ambitious youths
the class of '92, of the Central High
hool, gathered the fruits of their labors
st night amid the plaudits of their rela
tes and friends.
The knowledge that these ambitions
ung people were to bid formal adieu to
eir masters and their books proved a po
nt magnet to the multitude, and when
e curtain rose on the stage of the Grand
aera House an audience of noble propor
ins gazed across the row of flick
ing footlights into the happy
ces of the graduating class,
rery seat in the house was
cupied; the aisles were crowded and, to
rrow a stereotyped professional phrase,
tandin room was at a premium." Despite
e torrid heat, and the unusual length of
e programme, not a seat was vacated from
e moment the first delicious strains of one
Straus's waltzes inaugurated the exercises
itil the final diploma had been awarded.

It was a great night for the people in

Jed dignitaries who run our public school
stem, but beyond all manner of doubt it
oed a greater night for the young men
id women seated on the stage. They reel
ed that for the time being they were the
rorites of the hour and they made the

But after all the most attractive and mag
hic feature of the entertainment was the
tistic grouping of the class. The stage

as not a girl among them. In point of

Dip omat From the Hands of Chancel
lor Holland An Entertainlnc Pro
grainme rnrnhlied by the Students ot
Last night at Carnegie Hall another com
mencement mill ground out its quota of
graduates. The occasion was that of the
closing exercises of the "Western University
of Pennsylvania, at which 17 young men
received their several degrees, conferred by
Chancellor Holland in the presence of the
masters, the undergraduates and their
friends. The programme was of an un
usually erudite order, the salutatory and
other orations being of a thoughtful as well
as interesting nature. The Latin salutatory
was begeed off, owing to the fact, as
Chancellor Holland said, that the language
was the mother tongue of so small a part of
After thus discoloring the eye of classical
education, the programme was proceeded
calmly with, and an English salutatory was
delivered by Mr. Charles De Moss Emmons.
Mr. Emmons' oration was not too long, in
fact there was displayed an interesting in
telligence regarding the bulk of memorized
manuscript that the average audience can
digest that proved an agreeable diversion.
The applause invariably following had not
that note of relief that is too often painfully
evident and depressing.
The Story or n Swedish Chemist.
The philosophical oration of Mr. Walter
Kiddle dealt with the noted Swede, Ber-
zelius, one of the most illustrious of modern
chemists. The every-day misfortune of a
stepfather was in the case of this amiable
and intelligent youth a providential visita
tion, for seeing the genius of the lad, he en
couraged him in the paths trod afterward
with so much distinction by the great phv
siologist. The young speaker treated his
subject in a broad, intelligent fashion,
which won for him the attention of the
audience and a warmly expressed applause
when the oration was ended. The an
nouncement that Mr. "V7. McD. Dorrington,
of the class of '91, the crack soloist ot the
University Glee Club, would sing was re
ceived with cheers, mingled with a college
salute on the hands.
Mr. Harry Maxitnillian Ferren, who has
been deprived of the delivery of the Ltin
salutatory, delivered an exceedingly
scientific oration on "The Study of
Germanic Philology," which, unfortunately,
oould not be heard with ease throughout
the hall, owing to the heterogeneous row
in the street; including particularly, the
small boy and the electric car. Hi's com
plete mastery of the subject, however, was
evident to every hearer, br his ease of
manner, self-possession and unhesitating
The immigration problem was the sub
ject of an exhaustive oration delivered bv
Mr. E. EL Fulnier, who both well and
wisely handled a problem that men whose
infant statesmanship days are far behind
them could scarcely have maintained with
more clearness of purpose and logical
The Allegheny public organist, Mr. H.
P. Ecker, intervened at this period of the
proceeedings with an overture "Zampa,"
by Herold played in capital Btyle and
Thou Reoeivlnj; the Honor.
Followine this was the conferring of
degrees by the Chancellor, the following
young men being thus honored:
Classical H. M. ferren, J. f. Grigss, Jr.
Scientific Walther Kiddle. Ensineerimi
f. M. Cooper, J. T. Donaldson, L. E Isen
thal, J. W. Miles, J. C. Xasle, Frank Rhea,
J. F. Smith, Chai lea W. Davis, C. De Moss
Emmons, C L. Jvunkle, A. B. McGrew, W. G.
Pmdy, George K. Rose, George Wltmer.
Whtn the proceedings had reached this
point the Chancellor made an announce
ment that, while it came as news to nine- I decided
tenths of his audience, was received with
unanimous satisfaction. This was he state
ment of the annexation effected between
the West Peun Medical College and the
university, whereby that college becomes
henceforth the medical department of the
university. A settlement of this nature
has been strenuously sought after for a
number of years, but it has remained for
Dr. Holland to do what his Dredecessors as
eagerly wished for, but were for several
reasons unable to accomplish. The impor
tance ot what Dr. Holland has brought
about cannot be overestimated. The
delight of the students was
variously expressed, their joy finally
finding vent in the W. U. P. college cry
given three times resoundingly. The up
roar lasted for several minute's and then
settled itself, while Mr. Joseph F. Griggs
made the valedictory oration, after which
the Kev. David T. Carnahan pronounced
the benediction. As it had opened, the
commencement closed with an organ rendi
tion by Jlr. lacker.
Decrees Conferred on 1 romlnent 3Ien.
Chancellor Holland then in a neat speech
declared that the Board of Trustees had de
cided to confer honorary degrees to men of
prominence in this community, as follows:
Master of philosophy, Addison F. Hofiman,
Elmer E. Fulmer, Edwin S. Johnson,
Charles Morris Johnson, Adam C Davis.
Master of arts, Samuel Joseph McGeagh
and Francis H. Knox; the honorary degree
of A. M. was conferred on Ed J. Smith.
The honorarv degree of LL. D. was con
ferred on Justice Christopher Heydrick, of
the Supreme Court, and Judge Christopher
Magee, of the Court of Common Pleas No 2
of Allegheny county. The honorary de
gree of D. D. was given to Kev.
Da; id Todd Carnahan, of the class
of '40; Kev. Samuel Jackson Fisher,
of the Smithfield Presbyterian Church, and
Kev. George Hodges, of the Calvary Metho
dist Episcopal East End Church.
Each of these gentlemen as he received
his diploma responded in brief speeches
couched in suitable terms.
SPECIAL TELrQBAM TO THE DISFA.TCB.
Atlantic Crrr, June 2a This wu the
busiest day the National Council of the
Junior Order United American Mechanics
has had since its session opened here. The
controversy over the Illinois difficulty came
up and consumed a great deal of time, but
was finally disposed of in favor of the new
board of officers in Illinois. During the dis
cussion of the matter a serious predicament
developed. When the old board ot officers
seceded they took with them all the money
in the State's treasury and such of the
property of the order as could be used in
performing the private work in another
To-day the National Council discovered
that this propertv could not be recovered
because the national body is not an incor
porated concern. A resolution was passed
officially recognizing the new officers and all
the actions of the National Councilor and
his deputies in connection with the estab
lishment of the new State Council in Illi
nois, and while the order will lose, or rather
has lost, two or three councils in Chicago,
it is expected thdt the difficulty can be
Helped to Get on Their Fert.
The National Secretary has been in
structed to communicate 'with the new State
officials of Illinois, giving them assurance
that they have the fullest support and
sympathy of the National Council, and an
organizer will probably be placed in the
State for a few mouths to help them get on
their feet again.
Another prolonged discussipn took place
to-day over a petition presented by H. J.
Deilr, Past State Councilor of Pennsyl
vania, asking that a special per capita tax
be levied, or that the National Council
make a special appropriation forthe support
of the American Defense Association, lo
cated in Philadelphia, and ot which Mr.
Deily is the Secretary. The American De
fense Association has taken an active part
in the agitation of important questions per
taining to new legislation, and as it is com
posed almost entirely of members of the
Junior Order, and is partly indorsed as an
adjunct to it, Mr. Deily thought he would
have smooth sailing in getting the financial
aid desired, but after the matter was dis
cussed, it was decided to refuse the appro
priation, on the ground that the additional
per capita tax levied now for the support of
national organizers, is all the membership
can stand at present.
A Dlscnsiion Ovrr Finances.
Quite a discussion arose this afternoon
over the amount of money that should be
appropriated for subscriptions to the vari
ous organs of the order. It was decided to
give discretionary power to the national
board of officers in the division of $1,000
among the different papers, the principal
one ot which is The American, of Pittsburg.
In view of the condition the National Coun
cil found itself in indisposing of the Illinois
matter it was decided that the National
Council should become incorporated at
once, and that all State Councils not now
incorporated of their onn accord be com
pelled to procure charters immediately.
(juite a number ot the state councils,'
including that ot Pennsylvania, have for
their own protection, procured charters. The
National Council will be incorporated under
the laws of Pennsylvania, after which the
Illinois matter will be carried into court, in
the hope of recovering the money and prop
ertv belonging to it
In an appeal from Pennsylvania the State
Council was reversed in a matter involving
the-question of .membership A member
had applied for a withdrawal card and did
not take it. The , State Council decided he
could retain his former standing, but the
National Council says by its action to-day
that the asking for a card is equivalent to

Important Decisions for Membrr.
The committee appointed last year to
make a digest of all former decisions of the
National Council reported. Some of these
decisions which have for years been inef
fective and obnoxious were reversed.
Among the most important was one pro
viding that the suspended members lost
their membership in the order entirely.
This is reversed by the National Council
saying that "Once a member always a mem
ber until death or expulsidn."
A resolution was passed fixing the Na
tional Councilor, National Vice Councilor
and Junior Past National Councilor, as the
members of the National Board of Officers.
This reduces the board from five to three
A decision was made to the effect that a
Junior Past Councilor or Councilor cannot
occupy their respective positions whjie in
arrears for dues, and another that the rights
and privileges of a past officer cannot be
taken from him as long as he remains a mem
ber of the order. S
National Secretary Deemer presented the
National Council iiith a new ritual, which
was referred to a special committee and
will probably be adopted to-morrow. It is
a remarkahlv progressive improvement
over the old one, involving an entire
change in the obligation and initiation. The
truth is, there has not been sufficient
secrecy on the part of the councils w th re
spect to the secret work, and a change was
rendered absolutely necessary.
The National Council should have ad
journed to-day, but it is quite doubtful it it
will complete its work to-morrow. A great
deal of the most important business to be
acted upon is yet in the hands of com.

THE BLACKBURNE-LASKER MATCH.
The London Evening Newt and Pot states
that one game is so much like the other that
a repetition of the course of play in each
game Is unnecessary. The usual description
also fits tho eighth game played Enday,
June 10, namely, an uneventful opening,
which is correctly defended by Lasker. An
attempt by Blackburne about the fifteenth
or twentieth move, or thereabouts, to get
up some sort of an attack. Suceesdlul
thwarting of that intention by Lasker, re
sulting in leavine one or two vulnerable
TJOlnts in Blackburne's game. Detection of
these enfeebled points by Lasker; very
clever utilization of these chances by Las
ker In forming an attack in the middle or
end name. Invariable success of these
efforts, and finally resignation or Black
burne in 51 moves. The coincidence of de
scription even applies to the number of

(a) The position at this point is the sime as at
the fourth move in the eight variation of problem
No. 17i of Gould's Book of Problems, at which
point 17-13 is plaved.
(b) Mr. Gould credits Mr. Charles Hefter with
this most excellent problem (175) and In his "Notes
on Te Positions" (page 215) Mr.Goald says: With
the white king on 2 iuitead of 7, white to move,
black to win, by Charles Hefter, was first pub
lUhedear; ago In 'Wild Oats' as. a competi
tion problem and was awarded the prize by
air. Janvier, who aciea as junge: out, as
the rditor of "V na Oats' refused to abide by Mr.
Janvier's decision, the prize was withheld. As
some line players considered this position a draw,
Mr. Janvier republished It in his 'Sturges' and
offered a prize to an one who could show a sound
draw which could not be upset by himself or Mr.
Hefter." This is only part or what Goud says
about tills problem, but It is sufficient to show that
at one time It attracted wide attention. 1 dare not.
therefore, flatter njj self that I am the first to dis
cover the win as above given, hut if It has ever
been published 1 hae not seen it. My play may
not he sound; if it is not I hare notbeen able to find
the flaw. I invite criticism. MET.

Such in brief is an epitome of the achieve
ments and recoid ot James Wyllie, the
honored "Herd Laddie of My Native Land,"
Who, like Samson of old, beiefc of his
Strength, is mocked and Jeered at by those
who in the days of his mental and physical
stiength dared not accent the gage of battle,
even when odd accompanied the gauntlet
ot defiance. Mi. Baiker says: Nothing would
please me better than to meet Wyllie for
$1,000 a side, and further along adds, "his
expiession of late in regard to the relative
stiength ot playeis leads us to believe that
his reason Is failing, for no man in his right
mind could talk as he does." Then follows
a sneering expression of pity.
Here is a fine sample ot American courage
and manliness for all to wonder at, (for It is
be presumed that Mr. Darker believes what
he has written to be true, else be must con
vict himself of deliberately writing an un
truth. The iedoubtable,the courageous and
the invincible Barker actually puts himself
on record ag being anxious, ready, eager,
willing to contest a match at checkers with
an insane man for $1,000 a, side. O, my
adopted country, I blush for you if tne
written and printed sentiments of C. F.
Barker, aie a fair sample of American cour
age and manliness. But no, a thousand times
no; the Sons of America are as upright and
manly as are the sons of any nation on the
face of God's footstool. Joszfh Maize.
P. 8 On looking over the record I find I
have been more than generous to Mr. C. F.
Baiker. In 1873 Wyllie and Barker oontested
an exhibition match at Boston. Score:
Wyllie, wins 10; Barker, 3; drawn, 7. J. H.
Mr. Barker's letter, which appeared in lull
in the Cltronicle-Tf'egraph, is regretted by all
the best checker players in the country, and
leading experts do not fall to blame the
management of the column for not suppress
ing the letter. It will give the ever ready
cheoker editors of Great Britain another
chance to belittle Americans, but they can
rest assuied that there is none of the
American players but that regrets the pub
lication ot such stnff, as It does no good to
tne game ana only nurts our stanuing with
our cousins. What a contrast there is be
tween the kind and gentlemanly words of
Mr. Barker to The Dispatch correspondent
in Chicago in September, 1831. His exact
words then were as follows:
"I have no desire to cross swords with Jlr.
Wyllie. What would it profit me if I were
to win from him? nothing: besides, it would
break the old man's heart; of course, ho
might defeat me.
"Mr. Wyllie has been a remarkable player,
all themoieso because he has gained his
knowledge alone. He never trusted any
body, but solved the problems himself. I
prefer to let the 'Herd Laddie' carry his well
eained laurels to the grave."
Mr. Barker, wehope, will come forward
and explain this change of mind. He can
not deny he made the above statements to
Mr. Maize, the referee, as well as The Dis
patch correspondent, of the Reed-Barker
match. We deeply regret that Mr. Barker
has not the same Judgment with his pen, as
he has across the checker board In playing
the game. Checker Eoitob.

MAIZE'S CRITICISM OP C. P. BARKER.
o the Checker Editor of The Dispatch:
My attention has been recently called to a
scurrilonsly abusive letter over the signa
tuie of Mi. C. F. Baiker, Cambridgeport,
Mas;., in which tbeie is so much that is not
stated that it carries with It its own refuta
tion. Indeed so much so.that a noh-cheoker
playinir fnendof mine, on handing me the
paper containing the article In question for
perusal, lemaiked: "That fellow seems to
say the least, to be taking a gretmany
playful Hbei ties with the until." Mr. Baik
er say: "The following true history of
Wyliie's matches with the leading players
will no -doubt interest your readers. It Is
notaiecoid to be proud of, and your read
eiscanbut agree with me that Wyllie was
never a successful match player. On the
contraiy, he was very unsuccessful. 4.
checkerlat's ability is judged by his lecord,
such as masters in cliess.boat t owing, sprint
ing, pugilism, etc." Then lollows a choice
collection of epithets, pi obably culled from
Boston's most unsavory slums, foul, false
and lull of the coward's innate savagery.
Mr. Baiker concludes with! "In summing
up these matches wo find that Wyllie had
won 8, lost 11 and drawn 8 "
True, a cbeckerist'g ability must be meas

I From a Philadelphia Judge's Decision.
Philadelphia, June 23. Luther 8. Kauff
man, attorney for the Dairymen's National
Protective Association, which brought suit
recently against parties engaged in the sale
of oleomargarine, stated yesterday that an
appeal would be taken from Judge BIddle's
decision, and that he felt confident of having
it set aside by the Supreme Court.
Mr. Eauffman possesses circulars Issued
by the Chicago oleomargarine manufactur
ers, of which the local dealers are agents,
providing that tne material is intended to be
sold for food, which is an infraction of the
law nnsspil bv the State Legislature in 1S85.
Through the efforts or the Dairymen's
Association the retail dealers In oleomarga
rine have been driven opt of-the bnsineis,
and all bnt one or two of the wholesale deal
ers have Deen compelled to retiie.
Mr. Kanffman expresses confidence that
before long the business will have been
abandoned in this State, and in event of an
adverse decision by the higher court, the
Dairymen's Association Is prepared to go
before the Legislature at Its next session
and obtain more stringent laws governing
the handling of oleomargarine.
