K Ai.AMAZH'i, Mich., March It. One week
BjsSfl IbbJ night tile faeultv of Kalamazoo col

ping of Frofessors Ferry and Trowbridge
by the students, and to-day the chaotic con
lit ion of affairs at tic-institution is evidence
"nough that the learned pedagogu -s have
Isen enduring a week of anxiety. The re-
suit has btien that the college is practically
closet). Alter the punishment for the twenty-one
youths engaged in the hazing had
been announced, the liody of students re
maining petitioned the faculty for a heiring
in behalf of their suspended friends, and
when that hearing was granted they asked
that the punishment be made lighter. It
was given out that the students would not
remain in the institution if the matter was
not reconsidered, ami while they made no
threat th- y let thoir position be plainly
The Decision and Its Effect.
On Saturday evening the faculty met to
decide whether it should reconsider the pun
ishment iiiflicteiL At that meeting the fac
ulty enme to the conclusion that it could not
recede from its posit ion with any degree of
Belf-resp. ot. The decision was ma Ie known
tothestule ts yesterday, and they at once
heltl a meeting and resolved to carry out
their expressed determination to leave the
college. Accordingly, all but eight, four la
dies ami four gentlemen, among the latter
being the sons of President Willcox, signed
an agreement not to go back until the punish
ments of their fellow-students were moditl si.
The consequence was that grave professors
ItHiked at empty benches in the class-rooms
yesterday a ft-ernoon. The btu leuts s.sm to
be determined, and some have already
packed their effects to leave.
Trustees Hacking the l iirulty.
The affair is creating great interest through
out the BBete, as the whole Bapt ist denomina
tion h is look, fl with pride on Kalamazoo col
lege. Tho students have iheir friends, who
insist that the puuishmen' was too severe,
anil the faculty is sustained in its effort to
quell one lor all the praeiieeof has ng lie
hoys are actiug moderately, and. unless. some
other steps nr.- taken, fl ad have dep irted
for home in a day or two The fa-ulty will
keep the doors af the college oj e i ami hear
recitations it any students present them
selves. Th" trustees of tlie college are hack
keg the faculty, and two of them came from
Detroit last night to consult on the situation.
Nml Have Proper Respeet.
The management asserts that the students
who were not in the trouble have not shown
a proper degree of respect for the faculty in
investigating their action in suspending the
hazing students. This is the general opin
ion, and vt h:le the subtended students have
numerous sympathisers on account of the se
verity of the punishment the others have
none. A committee waa appointed to state
the facts in the case in printed form and dis
tribute the same throughout the state. A
committee was also appointed to draw up a
petition to the board of trustees asking ac

about 25 years old was found yesterday In

HIS FUTILE ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE.

by Express The "Country Member"
Takes in the Sights A Frank Confes
sion by the Unfortunate Statesman
His Political Career Blasted.
Pierre, 8. D., March 11. Representative
Samuel L. Hess, of Moody county, a member
of the present South Dakota legislature,
wound up a disgraceful debauch Saturday
night by taking poison In a notorious house,
with one of whose inmates ho had become
infatuated. Soon after his arrival in Pierre
he strayed into a den of iniquity and be
came acquainted with a woman known as
"Frankie." She is describe! as being far
from beautiful, but Mr. Hess became an ar
dent adminr, and paid more attention to the
woman than to his legislative duties. Often
during a call of the house when the sergeant
at arms went out to bring in recreant mem
bers he was informed that Mr. Hes was
with the woman.
Went from Had to Worse.
The infatuated legislator rapidly went
from Baal to worse. Though not ordinarily
an i litem 1 1 -rate man, he soon drank heavily,
and is said to have invested a considerable
sum of money iu win' at high pric 's for the
woman and her companions, a ml remem
bered himself so well that the change in his
appearance excited remarks among his fel
low statesman. His clear eyes I came
cloude I end bloodshot. The nntty clothes,
which gave Was rather a giddy appatraiice
when he arrived at the capital, went un
brusbed, and he wore the gen -ral asect of a
man whose sentiments regarding public
opinion resemble those, alleged of the late
A High OM Wind-l'p.
The night before the legislature adjourned
the members of that body received invita
tions to attend a party nt the hou e where
"Frankie" resided. Mr. Hess and a numb t
of country BMnban were on hand, and the
night was pa-taed in wild revelry. Mr. Hess
indulged freely in intoxicants, and toward
morning he was unable to take tlie special
train that Imre his fellow gafoere to their
Very Far Gasae Was Hess.
The next night he kept the girl's com
pany, and made her a proposition to leave
with bim and become his wife. She refused,
whereupon he again quenched his sorrow in
the flowing bow L In the frenzy of his dis
appointment, Saturday night, when sober
ing up, he purchased a quantity of strych
nine and swallowed a large dose. An inti
mate friend discovered him in a dying con
dition, and summoned a doctor, who was
sworn to eternal secrecy. The friend and
physician stood over the sufferer all that
night and Sunday, and finally saved his life,
though death's call was close.
He " Acknowledge the Corn."
Representative Hess was able to take a
ride yestenlay, though sick nnti feeble. When
approached by a 0Ot respondent and asked if
he wished to say anything regarding the
story concerning him, Mr. Hess replitsi ; "Yes,
I will say this much: 1 have disgraced and
dishonored myself and the constituents I
represent. 1 only have this excuse to offer,
and it is a poor one. 1 bought the poison
and took it in an effort to end my life. It
was taken in the midst of a drunken frenzy,
when no man is responsible for what he does.
I would give the greater part of my natural
life had this never happened. But now it
has happened, and it will be my art to hoar
the disgrace that will always follow."
Killed a Promising Career.
Mr. Hess has proved himself a ready de
biter and was always faithful to the inter
ests of his constituents. He is probably the
m ist popular jsihtician in Moody county.
At Flandreau, his home, he has a lieautiful
ami charming young wife and three small
children and a g'ssl BsjBkBBM His escajtade
has disgusted tlie state officials and legisla
tors, who can see no excuse for his disgrace
ful infatuation. Politically he is ilea 1 He
has heretofore afliliate.1 with the faction in
hi county dominated hv S-naior Pcttigrew,
with whom he bad considerable prestige.
The resort when-disgrace mid death, almost,
came upon him has filched from many a
plethoric purse and blasttsl the lives of many
FARMER THURBER'S STALLION.
A Sanguinary Beast Who Kills Cats and
Scranton. Pa , March 11 Prin.-c. a large
bay stallion, owned by a farmer, lavid N.
Thurber, of Price township. Monroe county,

nf the dead felines have lieen found one at a
time in the horse's stall with their backs
broken and prints of his teeth in tbeir flesh.
He was caught at his mur BBrXHjM w ork one
day, and this is how he went nlmut it: At
first the stallion appeared to !. friendlv
toward the cat

the cat rub against it. A II at nice t h horse
seized the cat by the neck, and tf vngclv lieat
it against the sides or the stall, l ee cat
scratchtsl the stallion's under jaw, but the
enraged horse kept shaking the heh-jkeaj cat
until it had stopped scratching and s limp
and almost lifeless. Then the horse dropped
the cat in front of his manger, and pant no
more attention to it.
Has a Spite Against Catvea, Also.
But tiie meanest thing that the horse has
ever done. Farmer ThurliT declared, was to
kill a '-'-weeks-ill 1 calf nlmut a fortnight ago.
The calf eras being l iitt. no I and-it was tied
in the end of the stable, twenty feet from
the stallion's stall. In the night the horse
slipped his halter off, mil when Farmer
Thurlier's son opened the stable in the morn
ing the stallion stood over tho dead calf and
snorted He had bitten the creature to
death, they concluded, ami then stamped on
it. The horse hn) nipped more than twenty
boles in the calf's skin with his to -th.
