President Wheeler of the University of .California presents a eulogy of the late Professor L. Du Pont Syle, form erly professor of English literature and dramatic art, in a memorial letter pub lished to-day at the university. The letter, reads as follows: The untimely end of Professor Syle's career as scholar, and teacher must bring pain to every one who had occasion to know his brilliant gifts and to expe rience the helpfulness of his instruction. He possessed undoubtedly a rare sense for the fineness and dignity of English dramatic literature and had shown unus ual tact and good taste in giving English plays a worthy setting upon the college stage. Any one who saw the Charter Day play of .1900 could not fail to know that a master hand was in control. It would. I believe, have given highest sat isfaction to his talents and to his ambi tion could he have developed here a de partment of dramatic criticism and art, using the actual representation of plays as the concrete and practical form of instruction, through which the theoreti cal and ideal might be given body and form. His natural talents as a teacher were greatly enhanced in value by a, natural interest which he took In the Interest and the points of view of those he taught. There are hosts of students from many classes who bear thankful ness toward him in their hearts, not only for what he taught them, but for the In terest he showed in their troubles and perplexities as well as in their joys and successes. In the face of these sunnier memories of his work and desire we for get the shadows that ill health brought upon his mood and life; for the sunshine is there forever, and the shadows are but for a day.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.— The .pro test of Paymaster Briscoe and Lieuten ant Williams of the navy regarding the ' language used by Rear Admiral Evans In reviewing the findings of the court which tried Assistant Paymaster R- Nicholson presented to the Navy De partment a knotty problem. The pro test went direct from the Bureau of Navigation to the Secretary of the Navy without the judge advocate gen eral passing on it. After considering the matter in all its details, it is said. Sec retary Moody concluded to sustain Ad miral Evans. Later the Secretary changed his mind and at Secretary Moody's instance Assistant Secretary Darling took the matter up. It is under stood he takes the position that Ad miral Evans in unequivocal terms at tacked the integrity of the members of the court, and that, having done thia, and if he had the evidence at hand to sustain his charge, it was his duty at once to order a court-martial of the officers to whom his remarks were di rected. Not having so acted, it is un derstood, Mr. DarHngr holds that the admiral was derelict in hla duty and should be reprimanded. The matter had reached this stage when Secretary Moody determined to enlist the legal talents of Secretary Root, who. It is understood, has given his view of the case. It is said to-day that it is Secretary Moody's present intention to return to Admiral Evans the findings In the Nicholson case, with a notification that he had decided to dismiss the protest of the two officers, Briscoe and Wil liams, but warning the admiral not to repeat the 'offense. The matter contained in the envelopes complained of is what is purported to be a Register and Directory of Qualified Veterinary- Surgeons in the State of Cal ifornia, which list has been widely cir culated among the stock owners through out the State, in which purported list the undersigned names have been pur posely omitted, for the reason that the undersigned did, during the session of the last Legislature, oppose certain measures that said association was lob bying through the Legislature of this State. We ask that a hearing of this matter be accorded us and that we be allowed to present evidence as to improper and un just acts of said C. H. Blemmer. We fire, most respectfully, GEORGE W. STIMPSON.

Eddy, who stated to the court that the prisoner had saved the, county the expense of a trial and also that he was the only surviv ing child of an aged mother. Judge Ellsworth in reply said the most pain ful part of his duty was the infliction of suffering upon innocent persons through the wrongdoing of those con nected with them. For the good of the public he stated that he believed it his duty to put Dunbar where he could do no harm. John Smith, a pal of Dunbar's and charged with the same offense, bur glarizing a room In the Windsor Hotel, withdrew a plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty. He was represented by Attorney Arthur Mack of San Fran cisco, who asked that sentence be post poned until next Monday. While Dunbar is not yet 30, he has already established a reputation for himself as a crook and is known to every policeman in ' San Francisco,* where he has done most of his work. He has seven prior convictions against him, and his admission of two of them in connection with the present charge was responsible for the severity of the sentence imposed upon him. | The girl that fainted looked hardly out of her teens and wept bitterly. Be fore Dunbar can again enjoy his free dom he will be an old man. George Dunbar, a self-confessed bur glar, was sentenced to twenty-five years in j San Quentin this morning by Judge Ogdeh. Upon hearing the sen tence a young girl,- whose identity was not disclosed but who was evidently in terested in the young criminal, fainted and had to be taken from the court room. Dunbar himself gave no evidence of unusual feeling in regard to the sen tence. He did not see the girl. She re fused to give her name or acknowledge that she knew Dunbar.- A girl friend who was with her,' however, said they had come to see what "would be done to him." Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, Nov. 16. The addresses by the other players were brief and referred mainly to the work of the team in Saturday's contest. Trainer Christie had something to say about breaking the training rules and appealed to the co-eds to help out in the future. Captain Overall was cheered when he said the team had done its level best. It was lucky and yet unlucky that the team scored and was scored o gainst. "The main thing," he said, "is to look out for next year. We lose many of our veterans. Stanford retains most of hers. We must get a team together that will beat them." The varsity football men were given a royal welcome at an Impromptu rally this morning on the sward opposite Harmon Gymnasium. Instead of the regular Monday morning: drill the "rooters," assisted by the "co-eds," "rooted" for the men who tried so hard to bring back victory after last Satur day's fight on the field.

"That was a good game Saturday," President Wheeler said. "The team represented us and j, we are going to stand by It. I have nothing to criticise and no one should be allowed to criti cise anything. I saw Stanford make her first touchdown Saturday. And I don't want to see her do It aeain. I once saw California make a score of 30 to 0. I like 40 to 0 better. Let's make it 40 to 0 next year. "We have good material for a team here next year. It grieves us to lose a man like Overall. Not altogether be cause he is a good football player, but also because he Is a good man. We will have to get somebody to fill his place and the places of the others. We can do it. We don't have to tave all four-year men. A few good ones will form the bulwark of the team and we can develop others who will Improve in time." • Berkeley Office San Francisco Call, 214S Center street, Nov. 16.
