Last evening, according to the - torn followed every year on the ev'-ii'.i ., of June 15, the Yale freshman ria-s 'handed over the sophomore fence to iti.j anew sophomore class, that class on this occasion being '99. As Is generally known, there are three class fences on t.he campus a senior fence, a junior fence and a sophomore fence. The present "fence" extends alone' the wall; from North college to the west end o Durfee. The original "old fence" was, however, the fence which enclosed the southeast corner of the campus before Osborn hall was built on the site. When the . old fence was torn down to make rooiin for Osborn hall there was no "feitjce" for over a year, but finally the frequently expressed regrets of alumni and undergraduates at the loss of that time -honored institution led the faculty to decide upon building a fence whlcn would take the place of the old one, and in the fall of 1S93 the present fence was built. The sophomore class each year selects a member to act as its spokesman, who in an appropriate oration hands over the fence to the freshmen, while fie freshmen in turn select a member of their class to accept. The orations began last evening at 7 o'clock, and at that hour a crowd ot several hundred students occupied the space in front of Durfee, where the ora tions were to be delivered, while in the windows of Durfee were numbers off ladies on hand to hear the orations and see the fun. The orator selected by '98 to hand over the fence was J. H. Scranton, and the one chosen by '99 to accept was E. T. Noble of Wichita, Kan. Mr. Scran ton spoke as follows: MR. SCRANTON'S ORATION. We have no doubt, gentlemen, that you want the fence. You've always wanted it. It is perfectly natural that a class like yours, which always wants anything that it can rest its hands on, should occasionally want something upon which it may rest its feet. Yet, believe me, gentlemen, you almost fail ed to get it. Ninety-eight saved it for you. You were so obtrusive when you came here that the rest of the college wanted you to get off the face of the earth, so we decided to put you on the fence. At the first faculty meeting held last fall the president exclaimed with a sigh of relief, "At last we have a fresh subject for discussion." But af ter you had been here awhile and they knew more about you the faculty didn't want you to stay. They said they could get along without a freshman class this year. But '9S objected. We told the faculty that such a course Would take away from them a great source of pleasure and would also spoil our beautiful system, for at pres ent '98 sits on her fence, soon '99 will sit on her fence, while the faculty sit on '99. And we thought ythe good old customs ought to be kept ijh. But I must leave these general re marks, and like the Greeks before Troy, I must hasten to the horse. Yet in disclosing your history to a forebear tng college it is hard to know just where to begin. You have so many stars, some shooting stars, some stars that often get shot. Like Long Island sound you offer room for many jibes. As the best way out of my predicament I'll be gin at the beginning. That ought to suit you, for where are you yourselves but at the beginning? Before you came here last fall we heard large rumors of your greatness. People said you were to be the biggest class on record. We said the freshest. And after you had arrived we found the rumors were correct. You certainly were the biggest class when counted per capita. And often as we looked across the freshman gallery in chapel and observed the sea of nodding heads we were tempted to remark with the girl upon the seashore, "What awful swells." You had not been here long before it was generally known that you were an athletic class, yet you were very quiet about It, and you increased rapidly in modesty. We visited you often and helped you to get acquainted with each other and with the town. You were shy and often retiring (or about to re tire), but we urged you on. We prais ed you we even flattered you. When i you shook your fists at us, refused to 1 go out, and declared that your heads were level, we gently asserted that they were absolutely flat, and that your faces were built upon the architectural lines of a commons pie. Thus, as I say, your gentleness increased until you even blushed vividly whenever you 1 were obliged to turn up your trousers. It was at about this stage of your ex istence that in large herds you wan- ; dered to the lake, and like the snail of wise Instincts, you crawled into your shell. But right here let It be said that as between the shell of the snail and the eight-oared shell of the freshman crew, '98 offers odds on the snail, with good prospect of winning. And yet we would not underestimate your oars men; they are a goodly lot of men. Though like the duck when moulting it is rather hard for them to feather, yet they are a noble set. It is with some trepidation that I venture to speak of them. I know that Windy Abbott has his eagle eye fixed on me. I do not dare to smile lest he smile, too. Those of you who have seen Windy smile probably understood the paragraph which appeared In a New York paper last fall declaring that since the advent of the new freshman class certain H. M. MANWARING, Jototoer and Manufacturers'Agont No. 179 Grown st., opposite Grard Cpsra House, Hew Haven, Ccnn. Y. M. C. A. Building, Bridgeport, Conn. things at Yale had been expnnded In every dirertioii.

In fact, I should not speak of him. but every little counts. But now we must pass to football, for after all like Trilby you get there large ly with your feet. You did well upon the gridiron; we honor you for it. You proved in fact that although you may and often do make a bull of athletics yet you stand in no fear of the tiger, and this under the present circum stances is very encouraging. In speak ing of football, you doubtless expect nie to mention Harvey, and Harvey prob ably expects it too. They say that Clark regarded himself as so essential to the success of the team that he used to lock his door each night and go to bed with his lingers crossed for fear somebody would steal him away. Then there's groehy Connor, one of the few men on the team who did not belong to the medical school or the Bible class if I may dare to mention these two in stitutions in the same breath. Connor is that well known gentleman who was refused admittance to D wight hall be cause he contended that Abraham went to the Valley of Sichem for the pur pose of seeing a dog fight. Upon the diamond you are famous for lots of things. Lack of space and per haps lack of appreciation of the ridicu lous prevent me from mentioning nil of them. Even early in the spring when the beautiful snow, spotlessly white, was decorating the campus, you were to be seen flitting, lightly clad about the ; town. And when a respected resident asked who you were and was told that j you were the Yale freshmen hnsrbll J team just beginning to work in the cage, "Cage," said he, "well they ought to be kept in their cage." Yet the team could not conceal its identity long. We soon learned, for instance, who the Heckers were, a name of which we had heard in the dim past as Identified with a particular brand of oat meal. The. twins are very fond of each other. One of them actually refused to pay his term bill because his brother was not invited to the president's reception. Then I must also mention Joe Ware; in fact he especially asked me to speak of him, and I am glad to gratify his whim. But when I promised to men tion his name he asked me to pronounce it distinctly for he did not want to get mixed up with his room-mate West. He said he was the king of the fresh man class and he did not care to share his honors with anybody. Yet Joe is a most generous sort of a fellow. He even parts his hair in the middle be cause as he says he is too fair-minded ever to agree to a one-sided arrange ment. As I look upon your well grown feat ures this evening I feel that it Is not wise to say too much for it is very evident that there are more of you than there are of me, and I have no desire to borrow trouble. You yourselves are noted for your borrowing. In fact, since you came here this fence is the only thing you have not touched. Your prominent men whom from long prac tice have gained proficiency in this art are numerous, but none are better known than Upton, who believes that because he lives in what is called a commonwealth he is always at liberty to take the loan of five or ten, without regard to previous acquaintance. There are many other little games, too, in which you excel us; one in par ticular often played without the joker, at which we could never beat you. The reason is quite plain, for while our re sources are limited, you, as you will observe by a close inspection of Durfee, can easily draw any number of queens. Freshmen, in the years to come we expect much of you. From head to foot, including both, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. At prfsrnt next to Savin Rock you are the most popu lar feature of New Haven. But do not let that make you unduly conceited for they say that Dante wrote his "In ferno" after a short visit to Savin Rock. You are an attractive class. You even drew some men from '9S, some men whom we had fondly cherished; men whom we were sorry to see go, but with whom we were forced to agree when they declared that they needed a little refreshing. In this class the genial Brastow is particularly prominent. He is an authority upon prep, schools, be cause of the large number which he at tended. And whenever, as often hap pened, he suddenly and unexpectedly left one of these instil utions his class mates would sadly gather round him and woefully yell "fire." He might be called the Hephaestus of '99 in that he has been falling, as Milton says, "from morn to noon, from noon to dewey eve," and some people say he is going to get dropped again. Right here a word must be said of the talkative Dewey, the man who is taken on the Glee club trips in order to supply the members with wind when they, meet with a reception warm enough to take their breath away. When discovered some distance off Dewey is usually greeted with the same exclamation with which the mariner greets the whale, "There she blows!" Gentlemen of '99. this probably inac curate summary of some of your lead ing characters. Including a few of our own late lamented, cast-off characters, is completed and now '9S hands down the fence to you. Yet do not imagine that you have won it hands down. Take it gratefully, for now you can do it safely without needing '97 to urge you on. Guard it well. P. wear by it; don't STEANRS, EAGLES and B0YD8, 100 new '96 model wheels, ladies' and gent's, other dealers in this city are selling for $So and $8s, we place on sale to-dav at $57 $57 $57 $57 swear on It. Clinrr to It as closely as is consistent with the safety of your trou sers.

THE ORATION OF ACCEPTANCE. Gentlemen of 9S: In the first part of your freshman year your home training still manif. st ed itself. Hut those charitable t. as given you by some one of those charit able ladies who took pity on your lone liness had a bad effect. You became I vociferous, even arrogant. The intoxi cating effect of lukewarm tpa, without a straw, was too much for you. You lost all sense of the artistic and beau tiful, so much so as to Imagine that your own discordant shrieks and yells, were more pleasing to the audience than the Glee club concert. For this act you were deservedly chastised. But let us draw a vaile over your last year's record. It was but the first step, and this year the university was I made unpleasantly conspicuous by an J outsider's natural inference, on seeing I you In your new-born dignity of pipes ! For such unwarranted clouds of ashi ; ! and smoke ascended from this very ' fence that the more religiously minded , townspeople thought that Vale consist- ed only of a cinder path and some sul I phurous oiles, with his Satanic Majes ty, the man of many languages, who rooms alone in Berkeley, addressing his pulling and prostrate minions In French, English, Sandwich and Hobo ken. Poor '98! You could not expect to stand against the last and best class of the century a class whom the Good Book did not forget to mention Ninety and Nine. You are proud of your ath letic record, but, alas! we have beaten ery record you have ever made a football team that went through th entire season without losing a game: a baseball team that defeated you wltn ease: and a crew that will lead Wis consin from start to finish. But I for got you pride yourselves on your row ing. Yes, you have a strong pull, but, unfortunately, It is not with the fac ulty. The mental strength of your oarsmen is not in equilibrium with their physical. When they exercise one they lose the other. Accordingly, you have to call upon '99 to fill the empty places in your boat when you wish to row. Your only real track athlete, your hurdler, obtains his wonderful form from nature. When a small boy he dreamt that he saw the cow jump over the moon. This seemed a favorable portent, and ever since he has been imitating that graceful animal admir ably. High, the silver tongued orator, from Honolulu, is next on the list of your loud men. He and Buck, and Weston, blow gales about the campus. Whoever wrote, "Man wants little here below. nor wants that little long," didn't know Buck. They changed waiters at his table at commons, the other day. and when Buck came in and yelled, "Bring me four dinners and a gallon of soup," the waiter fainted. In direct contract to your prim, nicely fitted men, like Frederick van B. and William Whiting A., whose blue blood is easily discernible under a microscope, is the strawberry blond", who is always so conspicuous on great occasions. After a careful diagnosis ot his case, we have come to the conclu sion that his tailor is blind. He is es pecialy noted for the fit and number of his golf suits. While speaking of your valiant marshal and great occasions let us stop a moment and consider how and why it happened. Your display was beautiful. Cavalry, infantry, artillery and foolery. From the amount of fuss you made one would think that you really thought you could play baseball. As the poet has so fittingly said: . On you came with banners flying, and your goat was almost dying. Stately tread and great ado, simply that and nothing more. While you wildly thought us napping, we were you more sure entrap ping. Either base ball, or at scrapping, vou're not in it any more. Why why It thus. I muttered, and the bird it simply uttered: Hecker's Oatmeal," nothing more. Can there anywhere be found one as "Beautiful, as sweet! And young as beautiful, and soft as young' And gay as soft' and as innocent as gay?" Wherever you go it is hard to 'dodge Marshall and his pipe. He first became attached to it, because it placed him be yond the possibility of a doubt, and now there has grown up in his kind and ten der little heart a genuine love for his inanimate idol. Of your singing it might be said "Discord oft in music makes the sweet est lay." And of your singers "Swans sing before they die; 'twere no bad thing Should certain persons die before they sing. There is Gren, who "Utters such dulcet and harmonious breath," "that mighty orb of song, the divine Brewer;" Marshall, the boy so prano, and last but not least, George otherwise known as "Dutch." "His voice more gentle than the sum mer breeze That mildly whispers through the wav ing trees." In a literary career you started out boldly. "The Kipling club was found ed for the puiyose of promulgating a literary appreciation in the sophomore class." All well and good. "The Stev enson club began on a somewhat differ ent basis, meetings being held once a week, at Billy's restauiant, but after a time this plan was found impractic able." Outsiders are left to draw their own conclusions. The question is now, whether Mr. Kipling cast any reflec tions when he wrote. I "That youth is fractious and whiskey's tlintious, An' there's nothin' certain but the mornin' head." With Lit. heelers you are well sup plied. There Is Herbert 1 . CI., warbler of poetic prose. Lord, w hat a man Is he, and "Trilby, whose name shall live In epic song While music numbers, or while verses have feet." Gouveneiir Is "One whose extraction from an ancient line Gives hope again that well born men may shine." Poor bald fat Jack, If work and per spiration will do It, "Our homespun authors must forsake the Held. And Shakespeare to the linsey-woolsey yield." Scrawny Tonimie of Yamlerbllt, Is a horoscope, has a keen Insight Into the hearts of the ladles. He fusses and loves to analyse prominent men. He has submitted a few samples, on condi tion that 1 do not use last names. Gren was born under a full blast of the constellations. Terpsichore seated at the harpsichord, Orpheus singing, "Just tell them that you saw me," with calliope on first bass. He has a good figure, is fair, with lleliuholtx resonator In his nesophagus. Dresses well, but looks host In a vacant room. Should avoid the society of Indies, and think ing of himself. If persistent and takes Delsarte. may learn to sing, but doubt ful. Would do good work as a dry goods clerk, but will succeed as choir boy in the Salvation Army. Garry was born with both dippers full. Apollo and Jupiter shooting craps for the drinks and the milkyway sea soned with nutmeg. Is below the me dium height for children of his age, and should wear knickerbockers to keep up appearances. Has blue eyes, a sunny disposition, and curly hair. Would do well as a professional ball player, but will succeed as leading lady in Steve Brodie's "On the Bowery." Del was born during haying time, In the Flysian fields, the sun shining In all directions, and Venus feeding Ganymede Mellln's Food, with a silver spoon. He liar, not reached his full growth, and will rapidly decline if he cats more than three meals a day. His Roentgen photograph shows a hashed brown complexion, and a fat skeleton. Should wear a chest protector, and ear rings. Will do well as a soubrette. Ham. from Madison, was born under the sign of himself; the milky way curdled. Vulcan roasting chestnuts and Aphrodite reciting poetry on the top of Mt. Athos. He Is tall and fair, with black half and a manufactured smile. He Is gentle, refined, courteous to otl'.ers, and has traces of genius. Talks through his hat with case, and does not think enough of himself. Ts the soul of generosity, frequently giving him self away. Should avoid writing poetry and putting himself on Record. Looks best dressed In his right mind, and if forced to it will give offence. And now. In all seriousness: Gentle men of '99: Let us feel that our meet lug here and talking and singing and smoking (it needs he) will make a stronger bond of sympathy and friend siitp between us. Ami when it comes our turn to hand over this fence to the first class of a new century, may we tie able to say: "We give to you a tradi tion which has for many years fostered the manly, democratic spirit of this university. It has done much for us; may it do so for you. Gentemen of '9S I thank you.

A crank walked into the Bank of New Amsterdam, at Thirty-ninth street and Broadwa shortly before 1 o'clock this afternoon. and, after demanding ?il,000 from Pres ident George II. Wyekoff, shot him in the abdomen. The man then shot himself in th neck. Both are dangerously wounded and may not recover. The crank afterward described him self as George Clark. He refused to give any address. Before shooting President Wyekoff, Clark handed him this note: "We want S6.000, five in $1,000 bills and ten in $100 bills. I will shoot you make a false move. Be careful My partner has you covered, and von make an alarm within three mill I utes after I leave he will throw a sticli of dynamite through the front en trance. Put the money m an envelop Don't talk." The note was written on a sheet of Marlborough hotel paper. It was un signed. President Wyekoff's office is in the front of the bank facing Broadway. The shooting was done within sight of the street. President Wyekoff, after reading the letter, refused to give the money to Clark, and the latter then shot him. The police believe that Clark is in sane. At the New York hospital it was said that his condition was more seii uus than was that of President Wyek off. The latter, it was stated, might recover, although his injuries are very serious. Funoriil of Sister Adelaide.
