Woolsey Hall Filled With Graduating
' Classes and Thelc Friends Address
' 01 the Characteristic of the Hlcht

The Broader View of Christian
' , Doty a Applied to the College Man
illa Duty to the Future.
The annual- baccalaureate address at
Tale was delivered yesterday morning
by President Hadley In Woolsey hall.
The galleries,, parquette and extreme
rear of the hall were filled with the
relatives and friends f the candidates

seated the regular college choir, the
members of which have remained In'
town for commencement. ,
Just before 10:30 o'clock Prof. Harry
Jepson began the organ prelude, and
soon after the academic seniors enter
ed by the leeft aisle, taking the seats
on that side in the front of the hall.
Following them, in the other aisle, came
the scientific school men, and then
those of the other departments. These
In turn were followed by those who
ere candidates for post-graduate hon
ors, among them being a few co-eds.
The dark gowns made a pleasing, ap
pearance in the white hall, here and
there being relieved by the colored
bands of those already having higher
degrees. 'i . - . .

The address by the president was one
r of the strongest and best delivered in
' recent years. : President Hadley spoke
right to the students and made every
Word tell. The address follows:
"Except your righteousness shall ex-
oeed the righteousness of the scribes
and Pharisees, ye shall in no case en
ter into the .kingdom of heaven,"
What was the essential characteris
tic of the righteousness of the scribes
. and Pharisees? ,;
It was this: The scribes and Phari
sees made morality; and even religion,
a1 matter of rules and conventions.
They looked for - nothing higher and
cared for nothing tetter than a system
of observances which they had inheri
ted from their fathers. This system
was not in itself a bad one. The
Pharisees had a more enlightened code
of conduct than any of their contem-
' poraries or than most of the peoples
who have come after them. This code
Inculcated in a high degree the vir
tues of cleanliness and religious obser-
' vance and of obedience to public and
private law. It laid some emphasis on
the more fundamental virtues of jus-
i, tice and reasonableness. ; It ,was basedt
on a philosophy in which God and a
(uture - life were essential articles of
faith. Doubtless , there were among)
the ranks of the Pharisees many hypo
crites, Who used the forms of religion
and of morality as a cloak for their
vices and sins; but there is no reason
to believe that the proportion of such
men was 'greater than has always ex
isted in any society where righteous
ness has been sufficiently valued to
(make it worth while to put counter
feits into circulation..
Why, then, does devotion to 'a good
system of rules and observances like
that of the Pharisees leadits followers
astray?' ,
Partly because the practice of rely
ing upon rules and conventions, how
ever good, lessens a man's power of
meeting the unforeseen emergencies
and crises of life. Next to the boyj
who comes to college with bad hatilts,
.the one who is in most danger is he
who has had such superlatively good;
lhabits that an infraction of a single
ens of them breaks down the barrier
nipon which he has relied, and leaves
him -without a system of inner de
Jenses. There are two kinds of degen-
i eracy; one which comes from too little
xeliance upon law, another whichi
comes -from too much. The man whom
we commonly call a degenerate suffers
from the former cause. He has broken
bo many laws that law as a whole
ceases to have authority over him, and
Jie becomes powerless to resist tempta
tion from any quarter. But there are
and always have been degenerates of
.'- the opposite type men who have kept
the laws that they were taught to obey
until such laws become the only au
thority which controls them and the
only standard which they recognize,
and they are powerless to feel the
stimulus, of anything better. There is
a point beyond which drill ceases to
be a help and becomes a hindrance ;
there is a set of circumstances where
the person who has been subjected to
too much control is as helpless as the
one who has Ibeen subjected to too little-
Every college man, as he goes out
Into the world, is exposed to a change
of atmosphere not unlike that through
v which he passed in coming from sqhool

Speculation In Paris Regarding. Its
Probable Purport. '
Paris, June 25. Speculation is rife
regarding the probable purport of Ger
many's reply to the French note con
cerning the proposed v.' international
conference over Moroccan affairs, which
reply has not yet been received. ,' The
statement that Germany would refrain
from replying before further verbal ex
planations took place - between Premier
Rouvier and Prince ; Radolln, the ' Ger
man ambassador, is not regarded seri
ously in well informed circles Where it
is thought, probable that an Interview
will not take place before Wednesday,
when the reply from Berlin may reach
Paris, but the officials afe wlhtuot def
inite information on this point
It is alleged that the contents of the
reply were given out to-day in which
Germany requests a clearer statement
of the French programme (or Moroccan
reforms, suggesting that each subject
be discussed Separately in accordance
With the tetrms of the Madrid conven
tion, the two points principally referred
to being coast trading and frontiers,
and that should France accept Ger
many would abandon the idea of the
conference. This, however, is regarded
as a surmise.
Meanwhile' public anxiety relative to
eventualities, though somewhat abated
is still intense. The press continues to
advise patience and confidence in the
efforts of the French . government' to
arrive at a pacific settlement. ...
It is pointed out that the negotiations
have heretofore .been conducted ! in a
spirit of courtesy and that appearances

Sometime During First Ten Days ' of
August Suggested for the First Meet
ing of the Plenipotentiaries ilussian
Under Minister of Foreign Affairs of
Opinion That Armistice is Not Likely
Japanese Take Offensive and Dis
lodge Russians from Position In
flicting Heavy Loss.
St. Petersburg, June 2612:51 a. rn.
Negotiations for the peace conference
have taken an important step forward,
a proposition for the date of the meet
ing of the plenipotentiaries at Wash-,
ington having been submitted to Russia
and being now under consideration.. The
exact date proposed has not been ascer
tained, but there is reason to suppose
that it Is some time during the first
.week or ten days of August, which' is
1 about the earliest period in which the
j Japanese representatives can . be ex
pected to reach Washington, allowing
reasonable time for the acceptance of
the proposal and the interchange of tile
nominations of plenipotentiaries. .
The emperor's answer is not expected
for a day or two, as the diplomatic
mills of Russia grind slowly and the
foreign office, as one of the secretaries
put it, "is not used to American hust
ling methods," but It is thought that
ithe date will be satisfactory, as it will
give ample time for M. Nelldoff, the
i Russian ambassador at Paris, or other
'Russian negotiators, to reach Washing
,ton, and as there will be little prelimi
nary work for, them to do until the
Japanese terms are submitted.
Whether the proposal regarding the
date originated at jToklo or at Wash
ington cannot be learned, but the fact
.that the negotiations were conducted
(through Ambassador Meyer may indi
cate that President Roosevelt has per
haps again stepped to the fore and sug
gested to the two powers,, neither of
,whi4m would-ba willing to take the ini
tiative, a suitable date. . .! '
Ambassador Meyer is still exchanging
communications with Foreign Minister
Lamsdorff by letter, the minister being
confined to his apartments in the min
istry; but in his latest note, written by
his . own hand, Count LamBdorff . ex
pressed the hope that he would haye,
sufficiently recovered to permit of per-
j sonal- exchange; of views to-day. The
minister's indisposition also prevented
him from receiving the German, French
and other ambassadors during the last
few days. -(. Js ,
t M. Neratoff, under minister of foreign
'affairs and the spokesman of the for

"The enemy holding the northwest
eminence of Manchenzou was attacked
and dislodged on the afternoon of June
22, but a portion of the enemy holding
the hills to the west offered stubborn

enemy holding the hills due north was
attacked from the front and we simul

.Washington, June 25. By direction
of" President Roosevelt, action has been

trative features as have been the sub

ers, students and others of .the exempt
classes shall ha vs the same courtesy
shown them by officers of the immi
gration bureau sis is accorded to'i Citi
zens 'of the most favored nation. 1 . ;
. Represenatipns have' been made to
the president that,; in view pf alleged
harsh treatment to many Chinese
seeking alandlng in the United States,
the commercial guilds .of China have
determined to institute a boycott on
.American j manufactures. The repre
sentations, backed by the authority of
the American Asiatic society and com
mercial ibodies throughout the country,
induced the president to make an in
vestigation of the situation with a view
to remedying the evils complained of,
of they were found to exist. The sub
ject was discussed thoroughly by the
cabinet, and the president took it up
personally with Secretary Metcalf of
the department of commerce and labor,
who hae-' supervision of the immigra
tion bureau.
As ft result of the Inquiry orders have
"jren issued to the diplomatic and con-:
eulaf representatives of the . United
States in China by the president him
self that they must look closely tar the
performance of their duties under the
exclusion law, and see to it that mem
bers "of the exempt classes coming to
this" country are provided with proper,
certificates. These certificates will be,
accepted at any port of the United
States, a ndwill guarantee the bearer
against any harsh or discourteous
treatment Such treatment, indeed,
will be the cause of the instant dis
missal of the offending official, whoever
he may be.
In addition to the president's orders,
Secretary Metcalf has issued instruc
tions to the Immigration officers which,
it is believed, will remedy the difficulty
heretofore complained of by the Chinese
government and Individuals. It is an
ticipated that the prompt action taken'
toy this,- government to meet ' the ob
jections made by the Chinese will elim
inate the possibility of serious trade
difficulties between China and th
manufacturers of this country.
