The Graduating Exercises of the

VAST CROWD FILLS THE HALL

cation by Mr. "Wilson Mr. Hoss
Introductory Remarks Br. Wlii:
uian'sj "Old Saws and Modern In
stances." Tlie fourteenth annual graduating ex
ercises cf the Washington High Schools
was held at Convention Hall last night
The commencement wis attended by a
moiiUer umlieiice. Hundreds of electilc
lights, "ted, white and" blue, twinkled
througlKMit the vast aUdllorium, and a
wealth of bunting made the ball ladlaut
with all the colors of the spectrum. The
usual commencement palms were pies
ent to leud a cooling aspect to the heated,
animated tceue. Alxive the stage swung
-and swayed a. great American ensign. On
the right hung the yellow flag of China,
painted with a black dragon chafing a red
ball. This conspicuous tuition wai given
to the flag of China in consequence of the
Chinese graduate, in honor of whom the
member's of the Chinese legation and the
Koieau mlnlstei, his wife and ton, wcie
present on the platform. Directly over
the stuge was the legend, "W. 11 S., '97.'
The letters and figuies were in blue,
w rought on a background of white, and
the whole was wieathed with palms.
Thousands of feet xvere shuffling over
the floor, tcoies of the commencement
functionaiies were hurrying to and fro
and there was a tumult of converse when
Trot. Fanclulli waved his baton and a
cection of tho Marine Baud struck up
"Zampa." This selection was closely
followed by the fantatle, by Fanclulli,
htvled, ""Old and New Favoiltcs." The
principal favorites introduced in this Tan
tasie were the Toador' mmis from
"Carmen," the soldiers' chorus from
"Fauit," aud the intermezzo fioir. "Caval
Then the baud opened up with Sousa'a
march, "High School Cadets." The col
umn of graduates had .formed in the reception-rooms,
at the rear of the great
auditorium, aud, at the signal from the
band, moved slowly down the center aisle.
The sweet girl graduates had the pest
of honor, and the boy graduates brought
uu rue rear They took teau. on tue
1 platform facing the audience, and little
! spasms of applause broke out here and
there in the hall as friends caught sight
of some favorite In the. regiment of
graduates On the platform were Com
j missloner John W. Ross, Commissioner
j John B. Wight, Dr. B. L. Whitman, prcsl
! dent of Columbian University; Rev. Dr.
I L .B. Wilson, Dr. Bayne, representing the
Eons of the "Revolution; Mr. Hunter, re
resenting the Sous of the American Revo
lution; Miss Spalding, representing the
Eastern High School; Mi. Walker, rep
resenting the Central High School; tha
board of school trustees, several prin
cipals of the public schools, Supt. Powell,
the Korean minister, wife and son; and
the following members of the Chinebe
legation: Ho Tung Shing, counsellor of
the Chinese legation at St Petersburg,
and secretaries Sung, Wang, Chung, Cheng
loininifisioner Ross acted as master of
ceieu.onies, and introduced Rev. Dr. L. B.
Wilson, who rendered the Invocation. He
.appealed to God by worshiping Him as
the giver of all gifts greater than he could
name and greater than he could measure
He thanked God for the possibility tli.it
men could think. He asked that men,migiit
be made to fully understand the things that
surround U3 in this world. He thanked the
Divine Power for the blessings He had be
st wed on this land of ours, in which it
hart been possible to instruct the youth
of our homes. He prayed that we miht
fully appreciate the opportunities glveu us.
He asked that these privileges might be
given to all lands, and that equitable laws
might prevail throughout the world and
hasten the day when peace and prosperity
sha 1 be the portion of.every nation. He
called down a blessing on "our servant,"
the President, his counsellor, and on the
great institution represented in the com
meiicement. He called for a blessing on
the graduates, their friends, and the public
geneially. He prayed that thelcarning they
hal acquired would aid them in resisting
thj temptations which would beset them.
He hojwd that the graduates would love
only the things that are of high nature and
of good report.
Commissioner "Ross then made a brief
address of welcome. He said that it
was the fourteenth anniversary of the high
schools. Fourteen years ago there had
bet- adanced grammar schools in the
District, and perhaps In their nature they
somewhat resembled the high school of
today. Since the establishment of the
high tchool in 1882 3,000 people had
passed through it and out into the walks
of life. The graduates of tills school
nov adorned many honorable rositious.
They were prominent in the world of
btiKiiiffrs, professions and letters. They
wenj among the most successful lawyers,
physicians and newspaper men in the
District. He extended his hearty con
gratulations to the graduates uron the
completion of the four years' course of
study. To complete this course satis
factorily had required courage, ability,
and tenacity of purpose. He congratulated
even I lie friends of the graduates who had
come to Phare in their triumph on ih's
Commissioner Ross stated that there
were in the public schools of this city
43,6 4R scholars, who were taught by
1,071 teachers. Congress had treated the
District with a fair degree of liberality
In the matter of public education. For the
fiscal year just dosing there had been
erected nnd repaired nine public school
buildings. The appropriation for next year
contemplated the erection of four eight
room school buildings. It was only through
the co-operation of all the people of the
District that we could get from Congress
what we wanted and what we needed In
the matter of educational facilities.
He said that there was one feature of
the public school system of the D'strict
in which the Commissioners and the school
authorities felt especial pride. This was
the system of manual training. The
strength of this system lar In the fact
that it began in the primary school. This
feature of the system called for more
generous treatment. The Commissioners
wanted two great manual training schools,
one for the colored and one for the white
children of the city. The Commissioners
in their last eUmutes submitted to Con
gress had asked, said Commissioner Ros,
for SlfiO.OOO for one school and $100,000
for another school of this character. If
the people of the D'str'ct pulled together
thej- could accomplish this needed re
sult. He stated that he had visited the schools
In other Arociican cities, bat in no other
jurisdiction has he een pupils so ord'erjy,
so polite, and so well-behaved generally, as
right here Jn the schools of "Washington.
This did not mean that the children of
Washington were spiritless or dull. Oa
reason might He in the fact that as many
of the teachers were women, and many of 1
the pupils were boys, these boys vfcre too
gallant to be of any trouble to their
jteach era. He uld tha t instances of corporal
punishment are very rare in the iocai
t-ehools. Oho reason for tho orderliness
of the hchool children of Washington was
tliut we had a unique population Jn WubU
ington there were tens of thoueauds of
people employed in the Government bervlce
who were gentet-'l and educated. This could
not fail to have a marked beneficial effect
on maimers generally in the Difctrfet. The
people in tho departments were trained
and disciplined, nnd thejsu characteristics
had been transmitted to their children.
Commlsbionei Ross told of the manifold
duties of the Commissioners, aud said that
the question or paramount Interest to them
was the question of themauagemcut Of the
public schools. The school buildings would
crumble and decay and the Capitol would
disintegrate, but the influence which was
behig sent out f 10m all these schools would
go on till t!-e end of time Commissioner
atcuw closed his pleasant and Instructive talk
by congratulating -everybody iu sight.
Following the addiess of the Commis
sioner the Murine Hand played Orth's
musical sketch "Jn a Blid Stoic," ".villi
Dr. D. L. Whitman, president of Colum
bian University, wasnext introduced. He
opened his nddresscby remarking thaf.
nil were present both to give nnd receive
congratulations. Everybody felt satis
fied tnat these congratulations were de
jt.rved. He would say a few words con
cerning the future, w hich he trus-ted might
be of tome help to the young people who
werelaunched tonight. He would askthem
seriously what their attitude was toward
the character or life they would essay
It wae the wise man who said: "As a
man thiuketh in his heart, so Is he." As
one of the first essentials to success Dr
Wl i miurecommendedconiidence Coward
icenever wona battleiiorreapdaharvcNt.
The man who looked for nothing usually
found it. A stout heart made a .strong
ann. ltut then man should bear in mind
the limitations of his power. 1c was a
great mistake for men to think that they
were gieater than God. In explaining
what he meant by the sense of limitaticn
Dr. Whitman told the story of a little
fellow who was told to pour molasses fiom
a jug into a jar. The Jug held mote than
the jar. He poured till the jar was full
to overflowing. Then he called to his
mUtress, '-The jar is full up; shall 1 pour
in some more." It was a great thing to
know when to stop. He advised men to
obey the amenities of life, but the ameni
ties if followed extremely would lead to
imbecility. Man needed his faculties vith
him. No soldier wanted to use blank
cartridges on the battlefield. It was a
mistake for men to be too much on diess
parade when they should Jju oil active
Tncn Dr. Whitman eulogized independence-
Incidentallj, he said that the con
cert of the powers had become a com
pact of shame, aud referred to the co
ercion ol Crete and the fear of the Turk.
Ho Sjwke warmly about the conflict in
Cuba as inhuman and lmrbarous, and
showed very clearly hife sentiments on
tluit point. He scored the present legis
lative methods of the United States.
Outside our borders were butchery and
barbarity, and Inside greed and avarice
which teemed to know no bounds.
Then another good thing to have was
plenty of hope. One of the magic words
of success was "pluck," and this was but
another word for luqe. Then It ias also
a good thing to be progressive. He paid
bis respects sharply to cranks, enthusiasts,
'Mrcinlst.s and conservatives There was
once, he said, an inconsistent man. He
had concluded that life was not worth
living. He started across the fields to
wards a rh er in which he decided to drowu
himself. Over the field came a bull.
This man bent on suielde shreked for
help and fled in terror- He did not want
to die in that way. He returned to the
rher and ended his life. He wanted to
die in hi.i own way. He would have h'n
way. There were others of a similar
uatiitc who had not yet committed suicide.
Then there are extremists. He had
heard of a man out Weut whoentertalmxl
such decided notions about silver coinage
that he refused to speak to his father
after tne old gentleman had celebrated his
golden wedding. There wire some ieople
who submitted everything to the wrong
test. Some Larbarlans, when they Wanted
to test the strength of a gun measured
the intensity of its kick. They calculated
the energy of the gun at the wrong end.
A man to be prudently progressive must
be a student or history A great deal of
human energy Is wasted in trying to
bring to life ideas that the world has
tried and proved failures.
Dr. Whitman quoted the words of John
Wesley, who said that, next to his Bible
he preferred common pease Common sense
was simply the Unking of all that was in
the pufct with all that was in the future.
The past was a pretty good thing to
interpret the future by
Then Pome men are so conservative
that they ne in the past the boundary
beyond which the future cannot go.- The
speaker recited a little poem entitled the
"Conservative." It was the lament of a
butterfly that his Jegs and down were
goue and that wings had come instead.
He would rather squirm than fly. It is In
the future that the sense of pleasure lies.
In closing he bade Godspeed to the gnd
uatea who were going from the tutelage
of our school Into higher institutions of
learing or out into the activities of the
Commissioner Ross Introduced Dr Bayne,
who announced that the Sons or the
Revolution and the Sons of the American
Revolution had offered a gold medal to the
scholar of the high school who would con
struct the best essay on what thatscholir
deemed the inostlmportant event in Ameri
can revolutionary history. ThLsyounglady
stepped down to the front of the stage, and
Dr. Bayne pinned the golden trophy to her
