DEFENDS THE NEW SYSTEM
MR. MOORE ADDRESSES VIR
GINIA UNIVERSITY ALUMNI.
Declares That Vesting Direction of
the Institution in a President Has
Been a Decided Success.
Those member* of the Washington
Alumni Association of the University of
Virginia who did not go to Charlottes
ville yesterday to attend the Founder's
day celebration gathered at the Univer
sity Club last night at the annual smoker
of the association.
Surgeon John C. Wise -of the navy pre
sided. and the principal address of the
evening was delivered by Walton Moore,
s former member of the board of visitors
of the University of Virginia.
Contest Over the Presidency.
Mr. Moore reviewed the history of the
election of President Alderman, the pres
ent head of the institution. Mr. Moore
was a member of the board of visitors
which elected Dr. Alderman. Until then
the university was run by the facuky.
The Acafcqfs oX the faculty, most of
whom had Influential friends among the
alumni in various sections of the country,
opposed bitterly the election of a presi
dent. They interposed all sorts of ob
jections. one of the strongest of which
was that presidential control of the in
stitution was contrary to the spirit in
which it was founded. In support of their
contention the advocates of the faculty
system claimed that Thomas Jefferson,
the founder, had strongly disapproved of
having a president.
Mr. Moore related some Interesting tils-1
tory of Jefferson's views. That the fa
mous commoner had opposed a presi
dent he admitted, but he said that econ
omy, and not principle, was Jefferson's
reason for such opposition at the time.
That Dr. Alderman had made a decided
success of the work Intrusted to him. Mr.
Moore asserted, was clear to every alum
nus who had watched events at Char
lottesvllle since Dr. Alderman's Inaugura
tion.
Greeting Prom Dr. Alderman.
Mr. Moore read a letter of greeting
which Dr. Alderman had sent to the
Washington Alumni Association.
In It Dr. Alderman referred to the
S1.U00.090 endowment fund and other evl
; dences of progress at th? university. He
thanked the Washington association for
the assistance and support it ha.. always
given him and expressed his apreclatlon
of the fact that the local association was
largely Instrumental In carrying to a suc
cessful finish the movement for the elec
tion of a president.
As presiding officer Dr. Wise took occa
?ton several times to criticise the lack of
interest shown in the association by alum
ni. and in these criticisms he was heartily
supported by the other members of the as
sociation present.
The following officers were elected: Sur
geon General G. H. Torney. U.8.A.. presi
dent; Dr. William Wilmer. vice president;
William Saunders, treasurer, and Richard
B. Mlcou, secretary. The executive com
mittee is composed of Dr. John C. Wise,
! Dr. George Tully Vaughan. Walton Moore,
Col. John R. Kean and Dr. Julian M. Ca
bell.

TELLS OF BRIBES OFFERED
OBANO JURY TESTIMONY IN
LOS ANGELES CASE.
Prosecutor Fleming Declares He Was
Approached by Former Police
Commissioner Schenck.
LOS ANGELES. Cal. April 14.?District
Attorney Fredericks has made public
the grand jury testimony which- resulted
in the indictment of former Police Com
missioner Samuel Schenck on a charge of
bribery
It was alleged that 8chenck, who is
out on bail awaiting trial, offered City
Prosecutor Pleming bribe money if he
would cease his efforts to close up the i
red-light district. Fleming's testimony
was to the effect that Schenck took him
to luncheon and there made a proposi
tion to him. Mr. Fleming testified that
Schenck said: "There Is money in this
proposition in Commercial street and you
can have yours every month. You can
just as well retire independent."
" 'Well,' I said, 'Sam, that sounds fine,
doesn't it?*
"Later I told him I would think about
it. That was the end of the incident.
He offered me no specific amount of
money." After some of the raids directed
by Mr. Fleming, Schenck, it is alleged,
made another call at the city prosecutor's
office. "The mayor thinks you are get
ting too long-haired," Schenck told Flem
ing. The mayor was sent for and an in
terview followed.
"I believe in. regulating this thing," Mr.
Fleming testified the mayor told him,
"I thought you would be reasonable, but
you want to be like the preachers."
"I told him," continued Fleming. " 'Mr.
Mayor, you are in the hands of designing
scoundrels.'
"Then I told him of the incident ot
Schenck offering me a bribe. His face
turned white .and he said: 'My God, I
did not think such a thing.'"

FRANCE PRESENTS A MEDAL
COMMEMORATES REBUILDING
OF SAN FRANCISCO.
Token to the United States of the
Sympathy and Admiration of
the French People.
A medal of gold, the gift of the French
government, commemorative of the res
toration of 8an Francisco from the fire
and earthquake of three years ago, is to

and issuing forth from the ruins, while
on the other Is represented France pre
senting a branch of laurel to America.

cidents and motives which inspired his
government in presenting the medal.
Congress in 1004 directed that a single
gold medal be struck to commemorate
the 200th anniversary of the birth of
Benjamin Franklin and presented to the
French republic. M. Jusserand received
it from Secretary Root at Philadelphia
4bout three years ago, and the ambassa

of the next medals to be struck would
commemorate the resurrection of 8an
Francisco, the disaster to which awaken
