What a National Institution
Should Be. SUBJECT OF DISCUSSION Banquet Under Auspices of George Washington Trustees. THE AJTER-DINHEB SPEECHES M Jusserand. French Ambassador, Former American Ambassador White and Others Deliver Addresses. "To learn what great universities are af fecting at the capitals of other nations, what they are accomplishing at the capitals of states. and what the George Washington University may be expected to do as a uni versity of a national character, non-parti san. non-sectarian, lion-political, to incar nate the principles of the greatest Ameri can. George Washington, and to do honor to his memory by establishing freedom in ull departments of learning, to seek and spt K the truth has been the purpose to night of this gathering." P'esidi nt Charles Needham of the George Washington Cnlverslty -so summarised the address's' at the banquet last evening of ti e trusters and alumni of that Institution ?t the New Willard. 5J Jusserand, the French ambassa Ijr,' predicted a splendid future for the univer sity and Biade particular reference to the Htuii> of diplomacy. I'rof. Kichatd T. Kly of the I'niversity of Wisconsin 'dwelt epon the opportunities in Washington for a school of polities. Andrew I>. White, for merlv ambassador to Germany, touched tlpon tin- special ? haracteristics whi-.-h he tie. ! >d make the feder il city the best p. ssible site of a great un versity. Speaker , Cannon spoke of the gr -at value of the higher education, and Dr. Needham told of the organization and prospective work ot the George Washington University. Com missioner Maefarland prefixed wli.li a gra ?'<? and felicity of phrase which did much to make the evening brilliant. The ladles of the George Washington .Me morial Association came in for coffee and tie speeches. They were seated in the galler.v. where their presence again demon strated, as Commissioner Maefarland very happily said, that man is a little lower than the angels. The banquet room was decorated with American (lags and the colors of the uni versity. The tables, placed in the form of a gridiron, were loaded with roses and car nations. At the guest table with President Need l.am were Col. Biddle, 11. S. Boutell, K. S. G. Boutell. Justice Brewer, Speaker Can non, L. A. Coolidge, Justice Duell, John Joy Kdson, l>r.

White, Nathaniel Wilson, A. S. Worthing - ton. Prof. Ely of the University of Wiscon sin and others. Mr. Macfarland's Address. Commissioner Maefarland acted as toast master, and he proposed the health of the President and then that of the ladies. The Commissioner said, in part: "We have George Washington for our spiritual father, and so have a right to bear his great name. We aim to obey his last command to establish a national uni versit . in the national capital which iie founded, worthy of the nation which lie creat 1. What lias already been done to < arry out his ptivat thought and what is planned fur -,.e future needs only be knoivn to s'cure the moral and material aid required for complete success. So mod estly has President Needham done the. work of reorganizing the university an l Manning its new career, providing it with a new t-pint even more Important than its new Bite, that it seemed neeessa-y to publicly Mate the progress and the plans. We are confident t.'iat the university, now so strong vith its fine faculties, its sixteen hundred H'udents. Its unexampled spirit and all the opportunities of the national capital, the natural place for university and research work, and already rich In the good will of this community, in which Its alumni are leaders, will have the sympathy and sup port of patriotic and public-spirited Ameri cans everywhere. The new interest in the national capital, the new desire of the peo ple of our country to see It developed and embellished and made a. model in Its laws and customs, will not Ignore this univer sity. "The national life. Informed and inspired by education, must find the ciown of its expression at the national capital, in a uni versity national in character, where ardent students may behold "the bright face of truth in the quiet and still air of delig ltful (studies.' " Ambassador Jusserand Introduced. Referring to l^afayette. the Cornmissioner Introduced M. Jusserand as the present rep resentative of the entente cordlale existing l>eiween France and America, and said, ln cating the ambassador's scholarship, that he is becoming an American by "degrees." Ambassador Jusserand said: "A city which bears the name of Wash ington and a university which bears the name of Washington are bound to be great, noble and beautiful; to be the pride of the country. "Like any human being a university TTiu-,t, in order to succeed, answer a need ?nd dapt itself to circumstances. Now Washington city. In which the Washington 1 ; iverslty Is meant to develop. Is not famous for its trade, its Industries enjoy rio celebrity, and the world has heard lit tle of its agriculture and navigation. But famous is Its Supreme Court, famous its Capitol, famous 1 , may say its White House v?fy famou*, Indeed It is pre eminently a.town of magistrates and states men. representatives of eternal justice and of the (not perhaps quite so Immutable) will of the people. "Universities must produce all sorts of men; else they would not Justify their pame; but It is quite natural that each ?ta>u!d pay more attention to one special kind of knowledge. I,et others then choose ms their specialty literary training, scien tific training or commercial training. The Washington University cannot hesitate an 1 ha* no choice; It will become famous and l>e of use to the country. In belug a nursery of magistrates, statesmen and diploma ts. "Diplomacy can be taught." said M. Jusserand.

Institutions in Germany. ? j After hearing from France Commissioner | Macfarland introduced Andrew D. White as one who could speak for Germany, and ; referred to Jefferson's ambition to found a university which in Cornell l>r. White had . accomplished. In beginning. Mr. White alluded to the fact that a university at the national capi ta! had not only been proposed by Wash ington- and indorsed by every President since his time, but that it had received a widespread support among unbiased schol ars throughout the entire country, such as had been obtained by no other educational effort In the history of the country He next dwelt upon the special character istics which make the federal city the best possible aeat of a great university, and spoke in part as follows; "Consider, first, the great scientific enter prises and organizations which center here - the coast survey, the Smithsonian and Carnegie Institutions, the Department of Agriculture, the Department - of the In terior, with its bureau of education, and the long catalogue of other bodies associat ed for the highest special purposes which a great university would include. "Consider the beginnings of universities alreadv so nobly made-the George \S aeh I UK ton Vniversity. with its splendid career thus far and its admirable plans for ttie future; the Catholic Vniversity founder'. b> one of the noblest and most larslghted of American educators, Archbishop Keane tae Methodist Vniversity, founded by that emi nent American scholar, the late B,"lloP v Hurst and. by no means least among tliese efforts, that wldch has been made so S and with such -^sacrifice. out so many years, by JohnJA. Hoyt n behalf of a governmental effort to aid the creation of a university. Libraries, Museums, Laboratories. "Consider the libraries gathered here, with their vast collections In every field of human thought?the Library of Cong-res#, the libraries of the departments, the Car negie Public Library, the library of the Geographical Society, the special libraries , of various organisations. _.r<.at "Consider Its museums, from the great I National Musettn down '"their varilu stages of development, all directed and per inertted by earnest thought and devoted P "Consider Its laboratories, ?n everyeclep tiflc field, directed by some of the most eminent scientists of the world, and filled with e.\ger Investigators. "Consider what U greatest of ail In select in* a university c?nUr?the man hare gath ered and groups about all these scientific and llteraiy centers, men of wide scien tific reputation, men pressing on in tne highest iield of research. "Consider the attractions of the city and its neighborhood. It is a capital in which are stimulated thought and discussion on the greatest problems, national and inter national, which can occupy the human mind. These give Its Ideals; these form its rflal atmosphere. In Every Realm of Thought. "Here, of all places in our country, are the things which are sure to attract those worthy to teach and discuss the highest themes in .every realm of thought. To uni versity hails here the foremost men in the great universities of the old world coulll be invited, with a certainty that they would be heartily glad to come?to teach and to bf"lagKreat and fully developed university here would benefit every existing univeisity in the country, every college, every nigh school, as regards lite-iture, science and a Mr. White In conclusion referred to the happy Influences exerted in other captU ? of modern nations by Sreat universale ^ and expressed not merely the hope but: thle firm belief that, either from the Present. ef forts of the existing institutions of learning at the federal capital, or from Congress or from noble foundations b> puSil.-Spirited citizens of great wealth or from all of these together Washington would be endowed with a unlverMt> which should take rank among the# best now In existence as a great center of ^ diating most happily not only throughou our country, but throughout the world. Independent of Government. Speaker Cannon made a characteristic speed). maintaining that a university should be independent of government, ani applauding the common school system which prepares for the higher training. Prof. Ely of tho University of Wisconsin Kouke of the peculiar' advantages which, the schools of Jurisprudence, economics and history had received In n.s college from its location at Madison. A railroad commis sion, a tax commission, a stateclvilBervlc club HW each been instrumental bring ing the government and college officials tp gether. with a. result that could only be at tained at a seat of government. President Needham outlined the scope ?md the purpose of the university, and. m Uie words of Prof. Jenks of Cornell, indi cated the possibilities of the institution as "i recognize clearly the many advantages 1 of a college of politics and diplomacy in Washington, with its great libraries, ts position as the center of the political life of thu nation, and even its geographical location, which, with Its political status^ makes it the intermediary between noithern andSouthern political ideas as no otner | city can be. I No Other City Its Equal. I "There is certainly no other city In Amer ica. probably no other city in the world, so well suited for a great school of politics and I diplomacy if sufficient funds are provided.

Escaped Murderer May Be Masquerad ing as W oman. An arrest has been made by the Mary land authorities In the case of Isaac Winder, colored, who escaped from Jail at Towson ten days ago while under sentence of death. The prisoner Is a young colored man named Harry Lee. It Is charged that he has assisted Winder to escape the death penalty. Lee- admits that he gave the fugitive murderer ?t and a plug' of to bacco since his escape from Jail, and also I admitted that he had since called upon the mother of the fugitive In Baltimore. Mrs. Winder, however, denies that she has seen anything of Lee recently. The prisoner was t committed to the Towson Jail for a hearing at some future date. No agreement has been reached in the matter of calling upon a troop of Maryland cavalry to participate in the search for the condeflfced murderer. Reports received by the authorities Indicate that Winder Is not far from the Jail from which he escaped, i It is now thought by some of those en gaged upon the case that Wlader is mas querading In female attire. 10 Is. a small man, and, it Is said, might easily pass for a woman should he wear a dress.
