The Baccalaureate Sermon by Prof. Dennis, Yester day Tonight Com mencement. 7 bo most interesting week of the entire year at Karlham, so far as the city is concerned, bccjan today com mencement week. As all the meet ings and exercises are public and the citizens lnvuea, tne attendance from the city is greater than in former years. Tonight is the meeting of the Ionian and Phoenix societies. A most interesting program is to be present ed. lomor-ow at 10 o clock in the morning occur the class day exer cises, mere will be class songs, speeches ana the like. In the even ing the meeting of the alumni asso ciation occurs. On Wednesday at 'J o'clock the commencement exercises occur with a class of forty graduates Yesterday Prof. D. V. Dennis de li vered the baccalaureate sermon, from the text "Ye are the Light of mo oria. i he sermon was a very scholarly and timely one, which we regret not beinr able to t?ive in full. We give the following extracts from it: We have denounced trusts; they have swept over thu country and held up their rnotto, 'Join or die,' to tue small business every where; thou Hands have found refuge in them who did it because they must. What if our great steel trust comes to rule the markets of the world and it is j in or din' to the steel plants in a1! lands! What if all our industries be come so consoliddted and the world .

It may be, let us hop- that it will be if we doourduty it must be.that these world industries will fall into hands so just that they will use this great jHJwer for the good of all. The Pacific ocean is too wide for us single handed; its l-'aues ar s toa long to be plowed by competing keels. The preacher and the teacher must fur nish forth men equal in mind and heart to the new demands, aid the statesman must give luws to curb where they ought, and to foster, not to crush. We can be as completely an las justly organized industrially as the body ot man is pht sically. Many millions of cells iu the body f ru the bone trust, the muscle trust, the heart trust, etc., and the brain trust rules in fairness over all. It is thus that the work of the body is apportioned justly and done economically.

Industrial freedom and in ternational unity, and with them lasting aee, may lie along the same line. From the days of Ceasar until now we have made deserts and called them peace. Maybe now we can make a garden and call it peace. We have some great and s-ome small opportun ities to try , ami the iwssible re sults are worth all the mistakes, suf fering, lalor and sacrifice they are sure to cost. '"In this new era that confronts us. the twentieth century will discover afresh, as other centuries have done, nut of its deepest need, the divine Son of Uod in the Nazarene. Capital will see that 'ye' means labor also.4. Ignorance wi 1 see that it means I arning; goodness even will see that it means the bad that is susceptible t remedy.

The cou- oof the future will not permit the unfairness of the past. ine laborer, shaking now through the strike, economists everywhere speak ing through prose aud verse, and re ligion from a thousand pulpits, are all agreed that the laborer is worthy of his hire, that the ox must not be muzzled that tread- out the corn, that all ye are brethern.that the hand e tc not say to the foot, I have no need of thee. "I am not complaining of trusts, I must say again. The evolution of in dustry called them and they came. If the world is to be in any sense one its units will have to be larger than m m. Complex and world wide and world-big commercial interests will be a long stop toward the brother hood that is implied in 'Ye are the light of the world.' Nor am I seek ing to champion labor. I know that it can waste until it ceases to have worth. but the niulti-mi'lionaire is estopped from saying it has not been good. I5igness has its advantages: unfair ness rover has: it grows in ugliness us it grows tn size. Justice aiso grows greater with the scale. I have a faith some future liockefeller will turn on not almost, but altogether all the lights for a continent, if not for a wor d. and that he wul be wise enough to do it econicallv and irood enough to do it honestly.

Girls strut last February and firms refused to take them back. assessors; plea Instead of Employing Ex tra Help They Worked Extra Hours. The assessors of this townsl.iD at the meeting of the county council presented a iietition or claim for al lowance for pay for overtime aud extra work. The council did not con sider the claim at all, but pigeon holed it until the September meet inir. It was addressed to them in the following terms: The undersigned, assessors of Wayne township, respectfully show that at your yearly meeting, Sep tern ber last, you appropriated ior tne assessment of W ayne township the sum of fl,200; that in endeavoring to keep within the limits of said ap propriation 1 appointed nine depu ties, making ten in all, and allowing sixty days each at s per day; that all wi r.ied diligently and in good faith tried to complete the work in sixty days, but alter the expiration of thirty days it became apparent that the work co ild not be done in the legal time with said force. The work was then-- iu such a staje that if new and inexperienced men were apjxinted they could not take the work up in its incomplete stage aud render as sufficient service us could be done by requiring the as sessors already appointed to work nights and Sundays; and the latter course was pursued and a schedule of this extra time is here presented. Tue extra time wa actually and nec essarily employed in said work and the services were honestly and faith fully performed. I le therefore prays for an additional appropriation as will compensate for this extra work and services. The statement accompanying the petition shows that the assessors worked eight hours per dav, claim inxr f 2 per day for that; then kept track cf all over time, am) oxpect pay at the same rate of f "i jer day lor an eight hour day. Their claim is as follows: T. F. Swaine, 120 hours. David Geyer, 1!M hours. J. 1. lleid, SO hours. J. C. Ilarrell, SO hours. J. K. Ueid, ItiO hourc. 15 F. Parsons, lt"0 hours. T. F. Ferguson, 13i hours. A. K. Klmore, 122 hours. S. li. Oxendine, 141 hours. Aleda Swaine, 1'.'2 hours. This is a total of 1,420 hours or 177 J days of eight hours each, which ai $2 per day would amount to $;$.5, making the expense of assessing this township over $1,"00 for this year.
