In his speech. President JBchurman said:
As we survey the work of Cornell I'nlversity
for forty years' I think we may justly claim that
it ha* been one of the potent educational factors
of the country. It has stood for progress in
education. It was the champion of scientific anr
practical education, when tiie mr-n of tlaairaj
learning looked on It with suspicion and even
with contempt. And the service Cornell has ren
dered to the farmer, to the artisan, to the en
gineer, to the manufacturer, to the vast body m
men engaged In producing and transporting the
commodities of life, and comfort, i.s writ large in
the achievements of its graduates and old stu
dents as well as In the teuchings and Investiga
tions of Its professors m
Cornell University, as the land grant college or
the State of New York. ls under obligation to
bring the result." of science to the help of the
farmer, the artisan md the Industrial classes in
general And Cornell University rejoices in this
honorable function. I trust the time [•> not re
mote when it may make a new departure in the
accomplishment of this work as head and leader
of a great system of agricultural schools for our
rural districts and of trade schools for our vil
lages and cities. What the university has done
in one place needs to be done in a hundred places
umler the guidance and stimulus of the univer
sity. Boys and girls need to be educated in
terms of their environment and industrial pros
pects. The college course is too long for the
majority, but a training for work on the farms
and in the shops could be given in day schools
and In night schools, too. for the benefit of boys
who must start to make their own living at
sixteen or seventeen years of age

St. Louis. June 17.— The Mississippi River has
reached a stage of 33.7 feat, almost four feet above
the flood danger line, and the levee is completely
submerged. The cellars of buildings along the
levee are flooded. Five thousand sacks were hur

strengthening temporary Jevees and repairing weak
places In old levees. Most of the steamboats are
obliged to lower their smokestacks in passing un
der the Eads Bridge.
Four hundred feet of the Missouri. Kansas &
Texas Railway embankment, which served as a
levee protecting f ms from the Missouri River,
gave way .at St. Charles thlß afternoon, and four

crevasse, and frightened families fled for their lives
to high ground.
The floods continue to recede at Kansas City

The Results of the Ontario and
Quebec Elections.
Toronto, Ju >• 15 (Special.— Canadian political and
constitutional conditions sometimes afford peculiar
opportunities for the picturesque, for the display
of political fireworks, for the expression of emo
tional sentiment. The French element In Quebec,
combined with certain continental forces, have
evolved something of this: the curious commingling
of monarchical Institutions and their dignified front
and forms, with a freedom and facility of demo
cratic action unknown even to the republican sys
tem, fire responsible for more. Underlying these
conditions In most of the provinces there Is a staid.
sober, God-fearing. Sabbath observance, temperance
loving clas% built four-square upon the ideas of a
Scotch ancestry or the traditions of an English
home. The result Is occasionally seen In startling
political contrasts. Americans in reading about
Canadian affairs should also bear In mind that
while the Governor General at Ottawa opens and
closes Parliament In a state of royal splendor and
lends regal, style to all state documents and law?,
and while the lieutenant governors of the prov
inces also represent the King and each In his lesser
circle duplicates the style and dignity of the fed
eral capital, yet the prime ministers are the real
rulers of the country. Each Is absolutely dependent
upon a majority in his respective legislature; each
must resign or appeal to the people If hi* policy or
proposed legislation Is defeated in the House; each
is affected by varying winds of public opinion as
reflected by the constituencies of the province (or
Domlnlor) through the Individual representatives
In the legislature.
In the provincial elections of Ontario and Quebec,
which took place recently, there were some In
teresting points. The Whitney government In
Ontario was too certain of its position, too assured
of Its success, too flushed with the consciousness of
a good record In legislation and work In the last
three years, to allow of the contest being exciting.
At the same time the province had In local, or
what Americans would call state, politics boasted
a liberal government in power and office from 18.2
to 1905. and though the landslide In the latter year
had returned the Conservatives with a majority of
40 In a House of 106 members, it was hard to say
whether the alignment of forces would remain the
same. The Liberal overthrow in 1900 had come as
a result of political decrepitude and of barnacles
attached to a party ship of state which was really
rotting with «ge and was corroded by the evil In
fluence of office seekers, campaign or machine poli
ticians, corrupt methods of winning elections and
even frauds at the ballot box. Public opinion de
manded a change, and Liberals, as well as Con
servatives, had voted for it. But the question Just
answered was the problem of whether the voters
would stand t>y their recent decision or return to
their first love. As a matter of fact they almost
doubled the majority and gave Mr. Whitney JO
seats of out 105, with a support which, in quality of
membership and size of Individual majorities, added
t > the value of the popular tribute.
What was the cause of this unusual reawtt? Mr.
Whitney Is a plain, straightforward man. blunt in
his expression of opinions, not very conciliatory In
manner, forcible In style of speech, but not by any
means an orator. His cabinet Is made up of good
average business or professional men. It was not
a question of brilliance or of oratorical fireworks.
All kinds of reasons are being given. Support of
public ownership of public utilities through the
government's Niagara power policy, say some; the
Influence of popular suspicion of the Liberal gov
ernment at Ottawa, say others— and here comes In
the curious fact that Ontario during the last thirty
years has usually voted Conservative In federal
elections while voting Liberal in the provincial con
tests; the absence of any real reason for dissatis
faction and the lack of Liberal organization, declare
many more. One might S3V that the result can-.e.
in the main, from public belief In tbe Incorruptible
honest of the Prime Minister. His policy might
be misrepresented, as all political policies are mis
represented; his legislation and record could be
minimized; his friends and followers mis»t be in
fluenced along lines of temperance or some other
special sentiment of the moment; the opposition
might be ably ted and i's contests skilfully con
ducted: but there was no meeting the statement
that the province had a transparently honest man
in control and should keep him there.
No better Illustration of Mr. Whitney's char
acteristics could be lia.l IBM his statement to a
Prohibitionist deputation a year ago that the
bigotry of extreme temperance men. their Intem
perance of language and advocacy, had for .s.ime
tin!.' pa-t retarded progress and r. form ratlvr
than helped their cause. Like master, like man.
and his Minister of Lands and Mir— carried a
measure in the I*.? session im:>osi:i* ft - itloa upon

the credit of political human nature, be II said.
Mr Coehrane's majority has Just been .louMe.l.
A different kind of conflict was thai fought oat
on the sHine day In Quebec. Tie atmosphere was
lie :l with certain unproved charges of corruption
again** one of the ministers, and of maladministra
tion In tbe affairs of one of the departments, and
the. Uoiiln government, though reasonably certain
of a return to power, was made anxious by a
dramatic occurrence in what might be called per
sonal politic-. No province but Quebec could
produce a Henri Bourassa; no people but ttie
French can thoroughly understand him or his in
fluence; no other political division of thai continent
could afford the picturesque background painted
into his canvass of life and character. Quebec
has Been many striking pictures of a political kind,
and in them all oratory held a foremost place.
Papineau, < 'artier. Mercier. «'hapleau. I.aurter.
have passed athwart its pages of history', and In
each case there has ."Hi 'i dramatic moment which
prefaced and secured success. Bourassa appear?
to have now experienced and grasped this essential
factor, and. it may be, has won his place among
the Olympians.
Only forty years old, and yet a member of the
House of Commons . since ISK; ■ bitter opponent
of Canada's participation ha Ins South African war
! and a keen critic of the Chamberlain policy; ■ ><»
I enemy to every form of Imperialism, yet a be
liever in British Institutions. In British connection
: as it is nt present. In monarchy as a principle and
in aristocracy as a practice; a Liberal in politics
', when lie feds like it. and an admirer of I.aurier's
personality and leadership; a Radical in all mat
ters of theory, yet ■ grand seigneur In manners
and stylo; an orator in voice and delivery, a keen,
i quick, sarcastic and clever speaker— he presents a
most interesting picture of personality and possi
bility. For some years past he had been drifting
away from his Liberal moorings at Ottawa. Im
possible as a minister, on account of his unpopu
lar war attitude and Its influence In Canada out
side of Quebec; honest in matters of public trust
and therefore revolted by certain indications «>f
political and personal corruption in Dominion af
fairs; approving of Sir Wilfrid Lauri^r tut disap
proving of many of his ministers and some of his
legislation, lie had voted and spoken accordingly.
Hence his position m Par!ian.*nt was becoming
strained when, In the spring of 190 T. certain charges
were made agaln«t Act-lard Turgeon. a minister of
the Quebec government, and he seized the oppor
tunity to leap into the provincial arena and start
-upon an oratorical tour of the province in the
avowed Interests of purity in its political life. In
Mr Turgeon he seems to huve met his match. A
comparatively young man. a member of the Legis
lature for seventeen years and a minister for some
time, the orator of the government and of the
party at Quebec, decorated by the Crown for gen
eral merit and position in public affairs, he was
no mean antagonist. The charges in question in
volved his alleged effort to obtain a campaign fund
out of the sale of several hundred thousand acres
Of provincial lands. Newspapers charged It. the
courts dealt with it and the Legislature discussed
it. Nothing was really proved, and in the end
lawsuits and newspaper abuse and partisan decla
mation «'n!y brought the matter down to a basis
of Mr. Turgeon's word, character and career
against the allegations of a man variously de
scribed as an adventurer an.l a H.-l.;ian nobleman.
Hut the charges were good platform material to
an opponent, and no man could use them more
forcibly than Henri Buuras»a
In the en-1 Mr Turgeon Interrupted the BovrsMa
tour of the constituencies by daring his critic to

At Ottawa did the *aru«, and the ensuing fight In
Bellechasse was spectacular In the extreme. t ir/f
It finally left Bourassa lying uader an adverse ...a
jority of TOT votes. With the general election*
which have Just ended he revived, raised his lane*
against the whole Gouin government, ran several
candidates In other constltnetictes. while he hlmsel*
faced the Prime Minister in a division of Montreal.
The Conservative party, which has Men" almost
dead in the province, with seven members of th*
late Legislature against a Literal host of aboaS
seventy, also picked Itself up. got out Its candi
dates in the constituencies, and. under the leader*
ship of P. E. Le Blanc, proceeded to put up a vig
orous light for life and Influence- even if there «*•
not much chance of winning office.
Premier Gouin Is not a man of magnetic P*r*;
sonallty, but he is respected and he had a recor*
of reasonably good legislation: his government*
in its three years of office^ — he ha.l succeeded S..
N. Parent, another Liberal, without any laterven-*
Ing election — had been clean of scandal except in;
the Bouraasa charges of the last year; he had a>
progressive educational policy which even his*
opponents could not criticise; his administration
had won a record for careful and cons*rvatt»ar
management of provincial finance?. Prestige and'
position went a/ long way. also, and they go fur
ther in Quebec province than in most place*, and.
to the public. It seemed a very plucky thing for*}
Bourassa to go up against thr Premier In a>:
metropolitan constituency which was supposed to;
be strongly liberal, and where Sir Wilfrid Lao
rier's specific statement that he -was personally*
a supporter of Mr. Gouin might be expected t»
have a pronounced effect Each candidate ran in
another constituency, so as to be fairly certain
of a seat In the House, and their Montreal battle
became the spectacular centre of the elections.
Mr. Bourassa could obtain ho halls larg*»
enough to hold the crowds that desired to hear
him; out-of-doors meetings ran into masses of?
ten thousand and twenty thousand persons; spon
taneous processions followed his carriage through*'
the streets. Yet there was nothing striking in hi*'
policy of an honest administration of depart
ments or of the better protection of forests and'
crown lands. He did. however, stand for Quebea
and Quebec alone; he was throwing off all Do- 1
minion entanglements and becoming purely pro
vincial in politics, as he had long been French la
principle. These things, in a man of impressive*
personality, the masses could understand, and
these things they liked. He was elected by a.
fair majority, with two follower* In other con—'
stituencies, and the opposition as a whole In th*«
new Legislature will have a great advance upon
the last in numbers, although Mr. Gouin carried
the province by a substantial working majority.'
Mr. Le Blanc is still in doubt as to his personal!
election, but about eighteen Conservatives tr*i
returned as compared with seven in the previous^
House. Mr. Bourassa becomes, so far as one can-:
anticipate anything from his complicated per
sonality, a power in the province, a force bitterly*
opposed to the Gouin government and not very
friendly to the Laurier administration at Ottawa,
and this latter fact may have far-reaching result*,
in the Dominion elect:.. of some time in th»
next twelve months. For the moment, however.;
Mr. Gouin and his friend* express satisfaction.'
with the situation.
This revival of Conservatism In Quebec. Its
overwhelming victory in Ontario. Its recent success
in carrying New Brunswick after twenty years of'
Liberal rule. its proved ability in the last year to>
boM Manitoba and British Columbia by good ma-
Joritles. have put new life and heart into the Do
minion Conservative party and have made possible*
■ change which two years ._ would have been
annul impossible. In the Parliamentary strug- ,

preparation of the electoral lists for Dominion pur- •

nre that a compromise has now been reached in
the fight grains on for some w<*eks past and in
which the Conservative opposition practically said:
■if you da not eliminate the obnoxious clauses in

In other words, the government would have hid no
