Decides That Arbitration
Is Impossible in the
STANFORD UNIVERSITY. Sept 8.—
The faculty committee has decided that
arbitration in the case of John T. Nourse.
; the treasurer of the student body, is Im
possible. They have given to Ralph S.
Fisher, captain of the varsity football
team, complete control over the ath
letic interests, virtually making him, dic
tator of athletics. Captain Fisher was
officially Informed of the decision of the
faculty committee by the following let
ter which was given out for publication,
STANFORD UNIVERSITY. Sept. 7. 1901.—

Sir: In 'View of the situation set forth in a let

..The letter to the president of the As

Resolved, That the executive committee In

has been a misunderstanding between tha offl- -
cers of the Associated Students and the commit

tion it deems it unwise to take any action in
the matter of student body treasurer, believing 1
that, so far as the students are concerned. Mr.

Nourse declines to state what action he
will take in the matter, but affirms hls»
intention of continuing in the exercise of
his duties as treasurer.
It Is understood that the money of the
Associated Students; which is In the Bank
of Palo Alto, has been placed beyond
Nourse's control by faculty action. It is
possible that this may call forth legal
action on the part of the treasurer. Ex
citing developments along this line are
expected to-morrow. There may, how
ever, be no direct legal clash until the

The late Benjamin Disraeli was wont to say
'the unexpected always happens." The truth
of this dictum is Ftrikingly illustrated In the

1fsu». Hoping against hope we unite in the uni

Fj>eedy restoration to family, friends and peo

If we are correctly informed the would-be
murderer seeks to extenuate his crime by con

capital. Never was greater mistake made in
ttie man or the office. The President is per

class however influential. And those who know
( ihe man need no assurance that hie first con
cern is the welfare of the American citizen,
Personally 1 do not think we can -attribute
this terrible deed to the struggle now on be-
tween capital and labor. It is to be remem
bered that the labor problem is as old as time
and as universal as man. It is not confined to
any one race or country or form of government.
Its weapons are not powder and dynamite.
These are the peculiar property of those ene
mies of organized society called anarchists, ni
hilists and revolutionary eocialists. In all
countries and under all governments a group
of persons, men and women car be found whose
quarrel is with government in the abstract as
well as in the concrete. AH forms of govern
ment are equally oppressive in their eyes and
to be destroyed. Hence their resort to violence
in Russia, Italy. France and America.
The lesson of this national tragedy Is that
liberty is not to be confounded with license;
republican government is not to be confounded
with the shout of popular anarchy; freedom is

A remarkable falling off In the percent
age of women students Is reported by Re
corder Sutton, who has just completed
compiling the statistics of the new fresh
man class. The class of 1905 has 42 per
cent "co-eds," .which Is' 7 per cent less
than the number in the class of 1904. This
is all the more noteworthy when it is re
membered that this year's class Is fully
7 per cent larger than last year's. '. This
sudden decrease in ' the " attendance of
women students is unprecedented in the
history of the university. Heretofore the
women have entered in such numbers that
they threatened for a time to outnumber
.the men. The change is considered sig
nificant, though the causes are difficult to
determine. , . . ; ¦ . ...
It being early in the evening when the
fire broke out, few of the hotel occupants
were asleep, and the firemen . and police
had no : difficulty in alarming i every one
in the building.- All of the storekeepers
carry insurance, so the net loss will not
be very heavy. Baker / Martin suffers
most severely, as nothing was left of nls
business. ' . ..".
At 8:30 o'clock the department was
called to the Liberty bakery, 857 Wash
ington street, where a big pot of hot
grease had boiled over, setting the base
ment kitchen ablaze in an instant. The
bakers had barely time to escape before
the - place was a roaring furnace. The
fire worked upstairs into the hotel, and
smoke added to the damage. The firemen
saved the building by hard effort and the
flames were confined in greater part to
the bakery, but this was destroyed. -
Clem Martin, the owner, is absent from
the city and the amount of his insurance
was not available.. His loss will reach
$10,000. The fire worked Into Robert Vin
cent's butcher -shop, at 853 Washington
street. Smoke did much damage there,
as well as to Christensen &. Shaw's sa
loon, at 851 Washington street. * .
At the same number is C. E. Qiiigley's
cigar store, which was slightly damaged
by smoke. William Heyers' saloon, 859
Washington street, and his residence up
stairs were filled with smoke. . The hotel
building Is owned by A. Bocqueraz. His
loss will be $2000 for repairs. The proprie
tors Of the hotel are Henri Cammas and
Pierre ! Rouguet, who recently purchased
it for $3000. They carried $1500 insurance
on the furniture. Water ; and smoke
