JAMKS OX COKDL'CATIOX.
President nt Xnrthweatrrn University
I)icasftC8 an Important Question.
CHICAGO, March S. Dr. Edmund James,
president-elect ,of the Northwestern Uni
versity, presented his first communication
to the board of trustees to-day. On the
subject of coeducation he said in part:
"There are many signs of a marked re
action in the public mind on the subject of
coeducation. Friends of the movement may
well view it with some concern. The tide
seems in certain ways to have ebbed. A
pronounced reaction has set in. Not only
has the system ceased to make new con
verts, but there are indications that it is
losing ground in the very territory which
it had so completely won. A new period
of questioning is upon us. A sort of vague
prejudice has arisen In the country at large
which indicates a new attitude of the pub
lic mind toward the whole problem. The
system Is attacked on new grounds and
from new points of view.
"We are, moreover, not left to merely
theoretical criticism and vajruo suggestion
as to what the public sentiment is on the
subject. This is evidenced in certain quar
ters by some very interesting external
signs. The distinct alteration in the atti
tude of a number of Institutions toward the
subject is indicated by their policy. The
rapid growth of attendance at the women's
colleges during the past few years is also
a very significant fact.
"All these things and many others of
like kind point to a serious crisis In the
history of this movement, and it behooves
those who believe in coeducation to study
the system with all seriousness. The
grounds of discussion have changed entire
ly in the last generation. The old objec
tions have lost their force and entirely
new ones are now to the front. The notion
that women are Incapable of doing college
work so commonly urged a generation ago
has completely disappeared. The objection
that young men and women cannot be
trusted to observe proper relations In their
social intercourse has lost its force in view
of the plain fact that the moral tone of
coeducational Institutions is distinctly
higher than that of the community at
large nnd is certainly not inferior to that
of schools for one sex alone.
"But, on the other hand, one hears off
ener the claims that the increasing num
ber of women tends to feminize the insti
tutions where they are, in some cases to
such an extent as to discourage the attend
ance of men. It is urged with increasing
persistence that the social distractions and
dissipations with their widening invasion
of the parlous purpose that should go with
school life for a very serious problem;
while others emphasize the fact that the
broad difference in the future careers of
the two sexes should lind a more adequate
recognition in the college curricula."

light of the main entrance. The mob tore
his silk dress to tatters and dragged him

NO COLLUSION IN CASE
DEXIAL OF A REPORT COXCERXIXG
THE FAYEHSIIAM DIVORCE.
Actor nnd Actress Hnppy Recanse
Their Marltnl Hondn Were Severed
Letter nnd Interview,
NEW YORK, March 28. Counsel for both
plaintiff and defendant in the divorce suit
of Actor William Faversham indignantly
deny that the decree In tho case was ob
tained by collusion, as Indicated by a letter
and Interview fcaid to have been written
by Faversham. The letter in question was
written to tho New York Herald and read
"After reading the New York newspapers
of March 3 in reference to my divorce I feel
that I owe it to my friends to send you the
inclosed interview and add to it here. My
divorce is no more mysterious than others
that the papers have handled lately. It
was arranged between Marian Faversham
and her advisors and myself that I should
give some grounds. I arranged it the poor,
mythical corespondent's name shall be told
when I come to New York all the details
for the terms of the divorce I practically
arranged myself. So all these stupid stories
and insinuations from certain newspapers
are of their own manufacture. I shall
thank the Herald for a correct version of
my part of the affair.
"Pittsburg", Ta., March 2G."
The "interview" Inclosed was as follows:
"If the divorce has been granted, then I
am very happy, and I feel sure that Marion
Faversham is also happy on account of be
ing able to obtain the divorce so easily and
without any contest, publicity or expense.
It was a matter of life and death to both
of us that this divorce should take place.
Our marital secrets we do not care to dis
cuss. I would like to say how much I
thank the newspapers for the consideration
shown to both parties after the affair came
to their notice, and the really clever and
dignified way some of the Eastern papers
have handled it. I feel that, had the edi
tors been handling such a case involving
their own family or parents, they would
not have shown more consideration than
they have shown Marion Faversham and
A. H. Hummel, counsel for Mrs. Faver
sham, and former Judge Charles Dona
hue, attorney for Mr. Faversham, to-day
denied there had been any understanding
in the case and pronounced as absurd the
contents of the letter and interview. Faver
sham is at present appearing in Pittsburg.
PITTSBURG, Pa.. March 28. Mf. Favor
sham would neither confirm nor deny the
authorship of the letter. He did say tnat
the divorce had been legally granted and
that there was no collusion. Further than
this he refused to discuss the matter, say
ing he was thoroughly sick of the publicity
already eiven the suit and would like to
see the matter dropped.

LYNCHED ON GALLOWS

1IAXGED I1Y MASKED MEX.
Wyoming: Murderer "Who Wonld Have
Reen Legally Executed Yester
day but for a Reprieve.
PROCESS OF LAW TOO SLOW
SUCH WAS THE VERDICT OF THE
TWEXTY-FOLR L, XC1IERS.
Scaffold that Was Erected for Expect
ed Execution Used by Avengers
Postmaster Out of Peril.
CASPER, Wyo., March S. Charles Fran
cis Woodward, the condemned murderer of
Sheriff W. C. Ricker, of this county, was
hanged In his night clothes at 1 o'clock this
morning by twenty-four masked and armed
men on the scaffold erected for his legal
execution. The men overpowered Sheriff
Tubbs, secured the keys and led the con
demned murderer from his cell with as lit
tle ceremony as possible. At 1 o'clock there
came a loud rap at the sheriff's door and
twenty-four determined men demanded the
keys to the Jail. On refusing the demand
Sheriff Tubbs was seized and bound and the
keys secured. After this there was no re
sistance to the lynchers. They soon se
cured the prisoner and led him to the scaf
fold erected in the jail yard, on which
Woodward was to have been hanged to-day
but for the intervention of a respite granted
by the Supreme Court. A rope was quickly
fastened to the beam and a noose placed
about Woodward's neck.
While the preparations were being made
Woodward talked rapidly. His words were
Incoherent, but this was gathered from
his talk: "Boy, let me kneel and
pray. I want to pray for all of you and
send a message to my blessed little wife.
I love her dearly and want you to tell her
that. I pray that you will have the papers
print it. I pray for you, Charles PJcker,
and for all of you. I never had a grudge
against Sheriff Ricker; never in God's
world. I never meant to shoot him. For
God's sake don't choke me to death. Oh "
Then somebody gave the condemned man
a push, forcing him on the trap, and the
rope began to tighten. Woodward gave a
leap before the trap could be sprung and
fell oft the gallows, hanging himself.
One of the lynchers pinned to the dead
man's clothing a card bearing the following
words: "Process of law is a little too slow,
so this Is tho road you will have to go.
Murderers and thieve?, beware! People's
verdict." Early this morning Sheriff Tubbs
took the body down and removed It to the
city hall, where the rope was cut from the
neck. It was then turned over to the cor
oner. Late this afternoon the county attorney
received a telegram from acting Governor
Chatterton, calling upon him as "the county
prosecutor to institute and make a thor
ough investigation of the crime, with a
view to the punishment of the guilty
On the evening of Jan. 2 last, at his
ranch, near Garfield Peak, in the Rattle
snake mountains, seventy-five miles west
of Casper, Woodward shot to death and
mutilated the body of Sheriff William C.
Ricker, of Natrona county. Woodward,
with his wife Bertha, and brother Clarence,
was arrested last November on the charge
of stealing clothing and provisions from a
ranch. It was alleged that Woodward's
ranch was the headquarters of a band of
cattle and horse thieves.
At the preliminary trial Bertha Wood
ward was released from custody. The
brothers were held to the District Court,
but were unable to furnish bond. On tho
night of Dec. SO. 191, they sawed oif the
bars of their cells and a window and got
away. At the stockyard3 east of town
Charles Woodward secured a pistol which
had been placed there by a friend. Near
Casper he stole a horse and rode to his
ranch, reaching there on the evening of
Jan. 2. Instead of finding friends ready
to assist him, he found Sheriff Ricker and
two deputies at the house, who were look
ing for him. He went to the barn. Intending
to abandon his horse and steal one of the
officers' animals. It was about 7 o'clock in
the evening and was quite dark. He
