That the leaven of justice is surely wcvkiug In tbe big Russian lump was Indicated once more Dec. 2G, when
the long awaited reply of the czar to the appeal of the zemstvo representatives was issue! In the form of an
Imperial ukase. While this decree is not likely to satisfy either the reformers or the reactionaries, it does make
some Important concessions. It displease the former because it distinctly . rejects the proposition for a repre
seats tire form of government and sharply warns against all farms of agitation for constitutional reforms. Tbe
conservatives deplore any cessions.
The principal concession Is in the direction of securing political and legal equality of the peasants with all
other classes. To this end a revision of the laws Is ordered, and the matter is intrusted to a committee of min
ister headed by the liberal leader, M. WJtte. This step is second only In Importance to the emancipation of
the serfs, but hardly less lnijortant sre the guarantees which, the manifesto directs, are to be incorporated in

zemstvo units, the definite protection of the Jews. Armenians and other unorthodox sects and the revision cf
the press laws are all in line with the zemstvo demands.
VOCATIONS OF YALE MEN:
THIRTY PER CENT IN LAW
Secretary Stokes of the Yale corpo
ration recently published an elaborate
set of tables showing Occupations of
living Yale graduates, says a New Ha
ven special dispatch to the New York
Post. These, combined with statistics
compiled several years ago by Profess
or J. C. Scfiwab, show some interest
ing chauges and other features. "
During the first century and a half
of the college a large proportion of
graduates went Into the learned profes
sions, especially the ministry. Thus,
from 1701 to 1744 out of 4S3 graduates
there were 22(5 clergymen, 33 lawyers,
3' ihvsk-ians: from 1744 to 1702 out of
Jki3 graduates there were 1H clergy
men, 3'J lawyers and 0! physicians;
from 17iSJ to 1777 out of 4S4 graduates
there were 131 clergymen.-32 lawyers
and 3: l physicians. Fourteen classes in
the lirst half of the nineteenth century,
ending with the year 1S13. show, aver
aging the percentages, tihout 31 ler
cent In the ministry, 34 per cent in th-3
law and about 12 per cent in medicine,
the rapid growth of the law as com
pared with the ministry being note
v.orthy. During the Inst sixty years
il:es proportions have so changed that
now out of 7,o23 living graduates of
the academic department only 4US, or
nltout 7 per cent, are in the ministry,
while 2,i:;:. or about 30 per cent, are
in the law and 337, or about S per cent,
Taking the last ten years, during
which the number of living graduates
In each class is about eiual, the num
ber of teachers rose from 2S to 40,
finance f-oiu 33 to 43, manufacturing
from IS to 33, and in mercantile life
from 10 to 30. Out of 12.003 living
graduates of the whole university there
are In arts and music 130; agriculture.
234; education, 1.4SJ); engineering, 840;
finance, 1.13S; government service, 200;

representing the , vocations of mpre
than 90 per cent of living Yale grad
uates. The striking features of the figures
for the last few decades are the great

graduates who go into business and
become "men of affairs" and the de
crease of the ministry and of agri
culture. Education, law, medicine and
public service latterly about bold their
.The departmental returns show that
out of M0 graduates of the theological
school 208, or almost one-fourth, have
abandoned tht ministry for other call
ing, chieily teaching, which took 121.
Out of 1,423 living graduates In law
327 have gone into other vocation,
chieily finance, -manufacturing .and
mercantile life. Out of 333 living grad
uates iu medicine only 34 have aban
doned It. Of 2.S23 living graduates of
the scientific school about one-quarter
(710) have become engineers, while 115
have become teachers, 315 have gone.
Into finance, 300 into manufacturing,
210 into medicine and 300 into mercan
tile life. Out of 303 living graduates
of the graduate school receiving de
grees 230 have become teachers.
The local drift as to occupations Is
comewhat strikingly denoted by re
turns which show that during the three
yea rs 1001-04 the north Atlantic
states gained from 8,047 tp 8,510 grad
uates, the south Atlantic states from
451 to 5.44, the middle and northwest
from 2.034 to 2.251, the southwest from
204 to 315, and the Pacific states from
547 to 050. In proportion to the whole
number of graduates in a locality the
changes are thus very evenly distribut
ed. There ''are 500 graduates whose
vocations cannot be classified. "
Do not undervalue the
services of a skilful phy
