Medical College of Virginia,
An Afcle Discussion of- the ' Advance
in -Medical Knowledge.
Uilioinl S<atonieM< Conpcrnins Its
I-iitnr*-— College Course Increased
«.» 1-onr Years— A Large Crowd at
the AcadtMiiy—iirllliant Banauet.
A brilliant audience filled the Academy
«>f Music last night, and saw Torty-seven
graduates of the Medical College of Air
receive their sheepskins.
The great feature of the occasion was
the- address by Dr. Charles A.' v Reed,
the eminent surgeon, of Cincinnati. It
was jwonounced one" of the ablest ever
h<ard in the -Academy upon a similar
The p'.sy-houpe was in gala attire in
!i< nor of ihe occasion. The front of the
>:.iir? was banked high -with palms, the
.-»lid green being relieved by the delicate
pink of masses of hydrangea and the
vfixen whiteness of majestic lilies.
On the . stage were the graduates, of
course, but, besides, there was the fa
tuity, members of the Board of Visitors,
Governor Tyler, Rev. Dr. J. B. Haw
thorne, and the orator of the evening.
Dr. Christopher Tompkins. .'dean, of ihe
faculty, presided. When the orchestra
had ceased playing at 5:35 o'clock, the
curtain rose, there was a burst, of ap-
V'r.ure, and then Dr. Tompkins: intro
duced Rev. Dr. J. E. Hawthorne. D. D.,
"who made the opening prayer.
The band played "All Hail the Power
<-.f Jesus 1 Name," and Dr. Tompkins^
made a brief addres?. He said:
"We have assembled here to-night to
:*!ebrate ihe" commencement exercises of
Uie sixty-second annual session of the
Medical College of Virginia. It gives me
v:n^t pleasure to state that the. college
.s In a most satisfactory and prosperous
oondition. The four-year graded course
of medical education was put in operation
this present session.
"Students who beg-an the study of medi
cine this session will have to pursue their
studies for- three more years before; they
can obtain their diplomas. The adoption
of th° r.our-y.tsar system, -is. regarded as
one of the most progressive steps in med
leal education which have been taken in
recent years; and this school has the
honor of having been the first in the
biate to adopt it. Under this system our
class has increased to a most gratifying
extent. All of the various enterprises de
sipned for- the improvement of the school,
notably the dental and pharmaceutical
3<?partments, are in complete and success
ful operation, and there are other enter
prises of great importance that are now
irigagim? our earnest attention.
"Among the most important of these is
the Charlotte AVilliams Hospital. This
magnificent charily is 'the outcome of the
}>tu!anthropic impulses of Messrs. John
I-. "Williams. John Skelton William?, K.
L. Remiss. W. R. Trigg. C. W. Tanner.
Major E. T. D. Myers. Colonel William
31. Palmer. W. M. Habliston. R. S.
Kosher, Dr. Ennion G. Williams, Fred.
Xolting, and E. Randolph "Williams.
"It is to be situated on the southeast
t-orner of Governor and Broad streets—
un ideal place for such an institution.
More thon $100,000 will bo expended upon
it, and no effort Mill be spjired to make
it the equal of any hospital in this coun
try. ]t has received its name in affec
tionate remembrance of a lady who was
tnken away in her youth and loveliness—
a lady who was the daughter of one of
lie chiftf of the noble founders.
"All of its surgical and medical work
v.ill b<- under the control of the faculty
<f the Medical College of Virginia. Aside
irom the manifest bessings that it will
confer upon suffering humanity, we can
not forbear from eongrattilating our
>t-lves upon the immense aid it will, give
us in our efforts to impart and promote
irodical instruction. Thiti session has been
propitious*, and we have every reason to
1-flievf- that the coining one will be yet
more successful. We will now award the
<i«sree of Doctor of Medicine ,to the class
•if forty who will have the honor of ap
j>f.arir.g before you."
At the conclusion of his address JJr.
T.Minpkins awarded the degiees" diplomas
to forty-seven graduates.. Ol this num
'.'■r forty received ihe degree of Doctor
..f Medicine, five of Doctor of Dental Sur-
Kery. There were ..two graduates of
Ihe School of Pharmacy. The names of
graduates were published in the Dispatch
ff last Sunday, with the exception of
that of .lohn -F* Rasland. Jr.. of this city.
which was unintentionally omittc-d. He
rof-elved his diploma with the others.
The orchestra struck up a gay tune as
It. Tompkins concluded, and the. boys,
who had remained standina after having.
r«-c«?ived tlieir diplomas, tiled back to
ihelr seats. Then the ushers began bear
ir>s in tbo flowers. They came in: the
most royal profusion, until some of the
11-ioro. favored of the boys were almost
hifldpn by the masses of bloom.
Dr. Tompkins announced the following

Tito Interesting Sessions Held Yes
' tvrtlay — The Boni-d of. Visitors.
The Society of the Medical College of
Virginia held two very interesting-, ses
sions yesterday in the chemistry lecture
room at the college. '.;■.„-/.
After the old graduates had attended
an interesting "clinic., conducted; by Dr.
Lewis C. Bosher. of this city, they: gath
ered in the chemistry lecture-room. The
body was called to order by. Dr. W.. E.v
Anderson, of Farmville, .the president.
The roll was called by Dr. D. A. Kuyk,
the secretary. It developed a; large at
tendance. . - - ;
Dr. W. S. Beasley, of this city, read an
interesting paper on "Medical Advance,"
showing, the progress made in medicine
and surgery since, the last annual meet
ing of the society. ,
A paper on "Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis"
prepared by Dr. S. B. Barham, of Spot
sylvahia county, was read by. Secretary
Kuyk, Dr. Barham being' unable to be
pi-esent on account of illness. There
was a spirited and somewhat lengthy
di-scussion of the subject. The paper was
pronounced a very able-.one.
At the conclusion . of the debate the
society adjourned / to,/ the laboratory,
where an excellent colla tion . was ten
.dered it- by the faculty.
At 2 o'clock the society went in a body
to the operating-room of : .the Old JDo
minion Hospital, to see Dr. George Ben.
Johnston perform a surgical operation.
Dr. Johnston, however, invited Dr. AY.
-A. L. Reed, of Cincinnati, and Dr/Mur
trie, of Louisville, who; were '-present, to
perform the .operations, and each of
these distinguished surgeons wielded the
knife in an abdominal operation. Each
was an wninent success. ,".
The chief business', of the afternoon
session" was the election of officers "for
the . ensuing year. The following were
chosen linanimously: ■'
President. Dr. W. LI Harris. Virginia

Dr. Kuyk got in after he had been cho

the . Chair to rule such talk out of order.
Everybody agreed, and Dr. Kuyk was
forced to serve again. : All the speakers
united • in" commending Dr. Kuyk as a
model official. .; V : ' ■
