To-day marks the close of one of the
most noteworthy events in the history
of New Haven, the commemoration of
the two hundred years of the existence
of Tale. The event has thus far been
in every particular a complete success,
and If the programme as arranged for
to-day is carried out without Interrup
tion the day will be in many ways the
most Interesting of the three over
which the festivities of the celebration
were spread. '

Woodbrldge hall, to-day's programme
is replete with features which make a
fitting culmination for the great Tale
week, which will never be forgotten by
the Tale graduates who have been
present, and which will eyer furnish
a highly Interesting chapter in the his
tory of New Haven and of Connecticut.
The address of President Cyrus
Northrup, LL. D., of the University of
Minnesota, and President Daniel Colt
Gllman of Johns Hopkins university,
together with reports of the other
events on yesterday's programme are
published in other columns.
Before an audience of fully tO.OOO peo
ple the Tale Dramatic association last
night successfully gave in pantomime
the history of Tale university from the
founding to the present day, choosing
for the scenes the most striking and
dramatic events of Tale's two hundred
years of existence. No more unique
and pleasing way could have been
found of thus reviewing the existence
of the university.
Historical plays, so-called, were put
to shame by the simple yet complete
and correct staging of the scenes in
the various dates. The costuming was
in keeping with the staging, and pro
duced at no trivial expense.
The hour announced for the beginning
-of the performance was 8 o'clock, but
at 7 o'clock the campus presented a
lively appearance. Ladles, fortunate
enough to have secured tickets of ad
mission, arrived early In the hope of
possibly finding a vacant seat on the
stands, a convenient doorway uninhab
ited. About 7:30 o'clock the classes began
to arrive and took the places assigned
them by the ushers. Each class as it
entered was cheered" by those already
in position, and thus a continual cheer
ing was in progress with not even a
breathing Intermission. Seated direct
ly in front of the stage was the bicen
tennial chorus of 150 voices under the
direction of Professor S. S. Sanford.
Between the chorus and the director
was stationed the Second Regiment
band, with the leader, Frank Flchtl,
who had charge except for the render
ing of the college songs. Immediately
in the rear of Professor Sanford and
occupying the entire floor space of the
amphitheater were seated the members
of the classes from 1850-1870, while on
the bleachers, arranged in the order of
graduation were the classes from 1870
to 1901, whiicmh turned out In full num
Preceding the dramatics was given a
musical programme by the band, which

The Dramatic Performance.
Th03e who had expected to witness
an amateur performance, thrown to
irether and run as a purely undergrad
uate affair, were agreeably surprised
Under the direction of George Miller of
the Hyperion thejropromptu stage had
been turned into a model of its kind.
jThe electric HbW equipment was com
plete and directed by Burt Van Buren,
while the props were cared for by Bob
Kelly, also of the Hyperion staff.
The first scene was entitled "The
Founding of the Collegiate School.1701."
The scene was laid in the house of Rev.
Mr. Russell o Branford. Mr. Russell
was shown the books which he had
promised to give for the founding of
Tale. Nine other ministers presently
entered, one and two at a time, each
carrying the books he had promised for
the .founding of the college. Solemnly
all laid their gifts upon the table, com
mit them to Mr. Russel's keeping and
join In prayer for the" success of the
Following this ?cene the chorus gave
the famous college songs "Here's to
Good Old Tale." and "Eli Tale."
Seventeen years are supposed ' to
have elapsed before the next scene. A
building has been secured and the col
lege Is now on something of a firm foot
ing. The title of the scene is "The Remov
al cf the School Library from Say
brook to New Haven, 1708." The scene
is in vltlent contrast to the first one.
The students rise in rebellion. Gover
nor Saltonstall. aged and Infirm, lean
ing on his staff hobbles into the pres
ence of the company. He Is accom
panied .by the sielff and followed by a
crowd of New Haven townspeople. The
governor manages to say; "For the
good of the colony this school must be
moved to New Haven, no matter what
they say. Here is your warrant! Sher
iff, do your duty!" The sheriff rushes
forward, followed by the New Haven
ers, and the books which have been In
rage thrown upon the ground and
loaded into a wheelbarrow and carted
"Washington at Tale" (a the subject
of the third scene. The stirring times
of the Revolution are at hand. The
entire undergraduate body Is afire with
patriotism. A company has been or
ganized and in the middle of a discus
sion by some of those too young to
join the company a captain arrives and
announces the coming of General
Washington. The general enters and
the company executes a drill that leads
the future first president of the United
States to accept their services. He is
escorted on his way by the company of
Scene four shows another year to
have elapsed, for the date is September
22, of the year 1776. Nathan Hale has
been arrested and is to be hanged as a
spy. He stands by the historic tree.
Around a limb over h'.s head Is the
rope with the noose, just above his
head, open and eager to receive its vic
tim. In the rear and at the side stand
the British troops, grim and immova
ble, apparently not a sympathetic
heart in the whole assembled company.
A long step is taken between the
next scene and the last. The date is
1850-60 and the setting is from the tra
ditions of the initiations of freshmen
societies. Stocks and guillotines, ekele-
! tons and hooded beings make a dread-
" ful and aweinsplring scene until finally
cloaks are thrown aside and the fresh
men are shown being initiated.
The same period of time is represent
ed by showing the "Burlng of Euchid."
The undergraduates' hatred for the
classic is shown by the burning of all
valumes Just before the term examina
tions. "1870-1880" is the date of the seventh
scene and it was easily within the
mcmlry of perhaps one-hnlf "f the
graduates present. The old Tale fence
was shown. Seated on it were students
donned in the fashion of the day and
discussing the new bicycle called a
safety, which then had first come into
use. Hannibal with his basket of can
dies Is introduced and In his most real
istic and persuasive manner says
"Gentlemen will you have something

Glasgow, Oct. 22. Sir Thomas Upton
while desiring to avoid monopolizing
the British side of the America's cup
contests, has already taken steps to
wards a third contest for the trophy.
Captain Robert Wringe, who returned
here from New Tork on the Archor line
Rtfinmer Citv of Rome yesterday, went
to Fairlie and had a long conference
with W. Fife, Jr., as to wnetner ne
would undertake designing the Sham
rock III for a series of races in 1902.
It is understood that Mr. Fife was op
posed to rushing out a- challenger for
ians. Tie considered the time too short
to do his best work, but was willing to
design a challenger to race in me
autumn of 1903. No absolute arrange
ments can be made until Sir Thomas
Lipton arrives, but there is little doubt
that a challenge will be sent.
Acting on Mr. Fife's suggestion, Cap
tain Wringe went to Careloch, to pro
vide for the better preservation of the
Rhumroilt I. which will be used In the
trials on this side of the water, the
Shamrock II will be employed in the
trials on the American side of the At
lantic. Just before sailing for England this
afternoon Sir Thomas reiterated to a
renorter his intention, expressed yes
terday, to wait a reasonable time and
then challenge again for the America e

the "Hora Novissima" performance at
the Hyperion yesterday afternoon. He)
entered the Hyperion shortly before the
concert began and wore a white badge,
the badge of a guest of the university.
At first he was not recognized and was
taken to the very front row among1 the
seats reserved for guests. Just as he
was about to sit down he was recog
nized, and whispers of "There's Mark
Twain" went about the theater. Then
a great hand-clapping followed. After
his identity had become known one of
the ushers escorted Mr. Clemens from
the very undesirable seat In which he
had just been seated to a more desira

Booker T. Washington at the While
Home-Resolution Paaaed Without a
Chicago, Oct. 22. President Roose
v?lt's action lit entertaining Booker T.
Washington, the noted colored edu
cator, at the white house, was upheld
and publicly approved by th American
Mlperlonary association, which opened
its fifty-fifth annual meeting to-day at
the First Congregational church at
Oak Park. The matter had been a
common topic of conversation among
the delegates to the convention
throughout the day, the societies prom
inent in the education of the negTO mak
ing the matter of unusual interest.
Additional Importance was lent to the
affair from the fact that Booker T.
Washington is a protege of the associa
tion. He received his first assistance
in securing an education from the asso
ciation and the Impetus and encourage
ment thus given him in his youth has
often been acknowledged by him as the
basis of the eminence he now enjoys.
The afternoon session had slipped
away before the sentiment of the del
egates crystallized Into action and the
matter was taken up by the business
committee. Before they had formulat
ed suitable resolutions the session had
ndjourned and action was poptponed
until the evening meeting which, It had
been planned, was to have been en
tirely taken up with a sermon and the
communion service. The matter was
deemed, however, of sufficient import
ance, for a change In the programme.
When the meeting convened In the
evening Thomas C. MncMillan of Chi
cago, one of the lay delegates, arose and
on behalf of the business committee
presented the following resolution:
"The American Missionary associa
tion of Congregational churches at Its
fifty-fifth annual meeting held in Oak
Park, III., Tuesday evening, October 22,
1901, desires to express its cordial ap
proval of the act of President Roosevelt
in entertaining at the White house re
cently Booker T. Washington, a justly
honored representative of his people,
thup Ignoring race prejudice publicly
and officially reaffirming the equal
rights of American citizenship and em
phasizing the principle of brotherhood
revealed by our great Exemplar and
Master, even Christ."
The resolution caused some flutter
among the congregation who were not
aware of the change in programme, but
it was adopted without a dissenting
voice and with manifest approval.
The same matter received attention
from Rev. S. Parkes Cadman of Brook
lyn, who delivered the evening sermon.
Referring to the Incident, he said::
"We cannot shut out from the Inclu
sive meanings of the blessed evangel,
any single child of the race, and we re
joice In the courage of our chief magis
trate, who receives at the executive
mansion of this nation a distinguished
son of our African citizenship who is
also an apostle of the principles for
which I am pleading.
"There is scarcely a monstrous para
dox in this social order of to-day which
cannot be traced to the refusal of man
to link every other man with the effi
cient causes of the kingdom of God and
the failure to look upon him as a broth
er In Christ and to estimate him by
the law of Christian comity."

London, Oct. 22. Sir Reavers Buller
has been relieved of the command of

of the speech he made October 10 after
the luncheon given in his honor by the
King's Royal Rifles dealing with his
famous despatch to General White at
Ladysmith. He has been placed on

appointed to succeed him.
In the official announcement the war

superoesslon was not unexpected, but
the manner of it has caused a sensa
tion. It Is understood the government
endeavored to break the fall by giving
him the option of resigning, but that'
Buller declined to give way.
The morning papers all express sym
pathy for the unfortunate ending of a
brilliant career; but they are unani
mous that no other course was open af
ter his indiscreet speech and they ex
press the greatest approval .of the se
lection of General French to succeed
The Dally Chronicle and the Daily
News attack the government for weak
ness and lack of courage in ever ap
pointing General Bullar to the com
mand of an army corps.
The Times, confirming the report
that General Buller preferred dismissal
to resignation expresses astonishment
at his "amazing defects of judgment
and sense of military discipline," and
says it hopes the change Is the begin
ning of an era of real army reform.
Proceedings at the Scaeton Held Yea
terday. Washington, Oct. 22. The Sohley
court of Inquiry opened to-dajr with
Lieutenant B. W. Wells, jr., who was
Commodore Schley's flag lieutenant
during the Spanish war, still on the
stand, but he was soon displaced to
allow Teoman Albert V, Mason, who
had written the Brooklyn's log for the
period covering the Santiago campaign,
to testify. Mr. Mason explained the
erasures in the log entry referring to
the Brooklyn's turn on the day of the
battle off Santiago.
He was followed by George B. Gra
