done. From the outlook on this, the
fiftieth anniversary of Newbqrr)
college, it -would seem that this in
stitution might be forever done with
adversity and discouragements. From
what has been said it would seem
that the college is deserving of per.
petual light, with a clear sky and
abundant prosperity-that all thal
she wotdd have to do now would be
to tht?jw 4nt her sails and let the
propitious *inds carry her forward.
"But the life of an itisfitution ol
learning in some respects is ver3
much like the life of an individual
full of ups and downs-we cannol
expedt sunshine all-the time. Amid
all, the - past discouragemeuts th(
coufse'of the eollege has'always beer
onward and upward. Often impeded
in her- course by such she struggled
on and on until she fred herself fron
the same and upward she would go.
This to some extent at least ma3

knows-but sbe has in the past len.
kthened her - cord, and strengthenet
her stakes, and coming up througi
adversity she has made herself bul
the stronger and better from the ex
perience. ' If these kind of times 61
anything similar to them should
again overtake her, with an ever
loyal and faithful church at her sid(
and with a town grown into a city
as her ever devotep and. trusted
friend, 'God,bdifig with lx.r .o bless

Wall Street Pays "Moral Debts."
New York, June -4.-Wall street
has had quite a shnelk and is eagc':ly
discussing the ''reculiar" action of
a man who gave up a considerable
fortune to pay eeri.:um morni debts
which he was by no meani obliged
to pay under the law. The man wvho
caused this sensatim~ was Edwvin S.
Hooley, whose firm, E. S. Hooley &
Taylor & Co., and W. L. Stow & Co.,
y Co., of No. 49 Wall street, failed
during the panic of 1903. The fail
ure occurred on July 27, 1903, three
days after the failure of Talbot J.
and was for $3,000,000. The firm
settled with its creditors in D 9cem
ber 1903, at fifty cents on the dollar.
In October, 1904, Mr. Hooley form
ed his present firm of Hooley, Larn
ed & Co., his partners being George
E. Larned,.and Frank E. Brumley,
the latter the board member.- The
house was notable successful from
the start and Mr. Hooley, who when
the old firm made its assignment as
suimed sole liability for' its debts,
found recently that the time had
come when he could carry out his
steadfast purpose to discharge his
"moral obligations'' to the credi
tors. As a result he mailed to each
of his creditors a check for the re
maining fifty cent of his -. claims,
with interest at six percent from the
date of the failure. His action is
not without precedent in Wall street,
but the precedents are not numerous.
*Mr. Hooley, who is still a young man,
has always been swell liked in the
street. The failure of Mr. Hooley 's
firm in 1903 was due to an overload
ed account In Evansville '& Terre
Haute and Keokuk & .Des. Moines.
These railroads the firm expedted to
sell. The money developed, however
bankers refused to loan on the col
latetal and the Hooley firm was forc
ed; to suspend.
