Today, public announcement was made of a "single and final gift" of $10,000,000 which in cludes all the contributions that Mr. Rockefeller had planned to make to the university. The sum, which is to be paid in ten annual payments, b?ginning January 1, will make a total of approximately $35,000,000 that Rockefeller has do nated to the university. Rockefeller says he now belieyea the achool should be supported and enlarged by gifts of the many rather than those of a single donor. This, he believes, will be better accomplished if the public understands the limit of his contem plated assistance. Founding of new departments he leaves to the trustees as he says they should be furnished by other friends of the university. Up to the present time about $7,000, 000 has been donated to the univer sity in addition to Rockefeller's gifts. With the announcement of Rocke 'feller's final donation came the resig' nation of John D. Rockefeller Jr., and Fred T. Gates, Rockefeller's personal representatives, from the university board of trustees. In enclosing these resignations, Rockefeller explained that he was only carrying out his conviction that the institution should be "controlled, conducted and supported by the peo ple," with whom up to this date he had been simply co-operating. Rockefeller'3 idea aa it is under stood, is that ha is turning over the institution and its endowment to Chi cago and the west, and in so doing withdraws from any further represen tation of its control. Official an nouncement of the benefactions was made at the quarterly convocation at the university this afternoon. Presl dent Martin A. Ryedrson of the board of trustees, read a letter from Rocke feller which bore the date of Decem ber 13, and was addressed to the president of the university of Chicago.

Conferences were held today and will be continued to determine the exact form of amendments that are to be offered at the earliest pos sible moment. The insurgents are not at all sat isfied with the manner in which the new rule, giving the house power to discharge a committee from consid eration of a bill was administered when its first trial occurred yester day. The rale was procured after a hard fight last session to provide means whereby a bill could be brought before the house when the committee refused to report it, or delayed too long in acting upon it.

The insurgents declare that this 1st a restraint of business which can easily be remedied by a small change in the rule. They propose to offer an other amendment that will require only the reading of the title of the bill, when a motion is made to dis charge the committee and to bring it before the house. Further than this the insurgents propose another amendment that will limit the amount of debate that can be had on bills that are on the calendar. They think too much time is given to unimportant measures and that business will he greatly expediated1 if such amendment is offered.
