joy in his work, and because he had

PRESIDENT OF STATE XORM.4I. 1)19
CIJSSED IMPORTANT SUBJECT IN
USUAL DELIOHTFVLLY INSTRUC
The title of it was The Man from the
Other Side. He gave his hearers the
benefit of suggestions which appealed
to him and the observations made dur
ing his visit to continental Europe last
year—dwelling particularly of what he
saw in Italy. President Weld was
greeted by a large audience of stud
ents and the general public and mere
words are futile to adequately express
the pleasure of the people at the close.
Mr Weld prefaced his lecture, which
was illustrated with a magnificent ar
ray of slides, with a review of the very
earliest migrations, even back to the
Israelities and primitive methods and
inspirations for people moving from
here to there. He told of the migra
tions which were to the east and then
he took his audience through the
phases of the more modern migrations
wlilch began with a move to the west
across broad seas to unknown lands
when first undertaken. He told of the
move of peoples from northern Europe
accompanying the text with scenes
showing tvpes of the Slavs and Italians
and with them showing scenes in Aus
tralia and Hungary all full of interest
Part two of the lecture was greatly
devoted to sunny Italy. The beautiful
pictures portrayed the dally life of the
Italian workers, among them those who
travel five miles to their dally task.
Life in Naples in the various phases or
existence was naturally depicted.
Scenes along the docks at Naples were
shown and how the peoples were han
dled on their departure for the new
world. Then the arrival in oik
harbor and what appears fiist to the
eyes of the new arrivals and the an
chorages made at Ellis Island.
TIVE MANNER UNDER AUSPICES
OF CIVIC LEAGUE.
President Weld of the state normal
school has prepared and delivered many
great lectures to hi3 students and the
public of the two cities. Live every
day topics and observations made dur
ing his travels have always been so
full of the descriptive and so profuse In
different phases of instruction that he
leaves his audiences hungry for mor.3.
It would seem however, that the peer
of all of Mr. Weld's lectures was the
one delivered last night under the aus
pices of the Civic league.
ies of beautiful pictures were those of
the great steamer Ivernian and the Pro
cedures which immediately follow the
arrival at the dock of the greatest im
migration bureau in the world.
Shear Was Convicted.
Senator Marden lias returned from
Detroit where he has been assisting
the county attorney in the prosecution
of a saloon keeper,
Ogema who was charged on
ment for selling liquor to Indians. The
defendant was convicted and Judge
Roescr sentenced the prisoner to Berve
a term of six months in the state
prison. The government has been
tracking the defendant for a long time,
but owing to the unwillingness of the
Indians to divulge where they buy the
whiskv they get and from whom it
has been a difficult job to secure con
victing evidence. It is said that Shear
has been doing a remarkably good
business and reported to have had
plenty of money to pay a fine, but the
court considered the enormity of the
crime committed and did not give the
defendant a chance to use his alleged
ill-gotten gains to keep himself out of
prison which he feared greatly.
President Weld will give an illus
trated lecture Monday evening, the
proceeds of which will he devoted to
the movement begun by the Civic club
to secure a playground for tne chj*"
dren of the city. This lecture Is the
first of a series planned by President
Weld. Many pictures of the finest
manufacture will be used, and th© lec
ture will be a remarkable exposition
of the Italian life, character, and
work. The lecture will be given in
the normal school auditorium.
