BERKELEY, March' 29.— Hugh M. Garnett of the class of '03, University of California, married Miss Emma Ammand in Portland three weeks ago and nobody knew anything about it until a few weeks ago, when the news leaked -out through a casual remark dropped by one of the interested parties. It seems that the bride met Mr. Garnett soon after his arrival in Port land, where he went after his gradua tion to take a position, and from that acquaintance grew an engagement.

COLLEGE MAN SURPRISES FRIENDS BY MARRYING This overt act on the part of the sophomores is more than likely to end in another attempt at rushing: It amounts to a challenge to the "freshles" to knock the chip off the "sophs' " shoulders, and hostilities may be precipitated at any moment. In anticipation of such a thing. Pro fessor Cory has trimmed the wick of his peering searchlight and picketed a guard around the hill. With the dawn may come a list of dead, dying, wounded and prisoners. That '07 was as a red rag to a mad bull to the sophomores, the traditional enemies of the freshmen, and a band of them charged up the hill. In a lit tle while, there being no opposition, the sophomores had changed the '07 into '06, life size. When the shades of night lowered over the campus this evening the '06 was still there. BERKELEY. March 29.—"Resolv ing" and "whereasing" seems to have resulted in some satisfaction to the juniors at the' University of California, for when -Professor CJ L. Cory, chair man of the students' affairs commit tee, arrived at his office this morning and found the' set of resolutions adopted by the claps vesterday, he immediately made up his mind to re turn all the jewelry and letters and key rings that his imported policemen took from the would-be rushers last Charter day eve. Professor Cory called the six or eight recalcitrants before him, and, after reading them a lecture, gave them back their property. This was emi nently pleasing to the students, and they are all so glad that they were not "fired" . forthwith - that they couldn't kow-tow enough to' the professor. Now the account' is square again. There is a promise of more- trouble, however, in the developments of the day. For on its way across the campus this morning the college population discovered some numerals on the for bidden Charter Hill. They were the figures '07 in big white letters of lime, visible from every point in Berkeley. The freshmen class had planted them there in the night. Edward K. Clarke, the capitalist, who is suing for the annulment of his marriage to Rosalind H. Bower-Clarke, the "sweet pea girl," yesterday filed an answer to her cross-complaint.

The action is brought by Mary Tobin, v ho states that in IS 93 she and Tobin held up their right hands and ewore they would take other for better or for worse. The formality of a wedding ceremony was dispensed with, but this was in the days of con tract marriages. They afterward lived together for a period of eight years and passed as husband and wife and it is urged that this made the marriage a legal one. About a yea* or so ago Tobin's fancy Ftrayed. He left his partner, and some time afterward married a second time; then the first Mrs. Tobin began her action and asks for a division of the community property, which she al leges amounts to about $2000 cash. «m her behalf Supervisor A.

Oakland Office San Francisco Call, HIS Broadway, March 29. The aid of orchardists of the State is solicited by the College of Agriculture in the study of the moth, by making observations in their own localities of the facts upon which the timing of the applications in each of these cam paigns must be based. "In the lower portion of the Pajaro Valley the danger of poisoning the fo liage is so great, even when the maxi mum of lime is added, that we cannot recommend the use of paris green at all, but suggest the substitution of the lime orjead arsenite." When and how to spray are questions which Professor Woodworth says must be answered by the orchardist himself. California is of such diversified climate that no precise rule ttill obtain in any two parts of \the State at the same time. Every part requfres a different kind of campaign, differently timed and differently executed. Here is what Professor Woodworth says: AH the spraying operations should be made to dcoend upon data, determined for each region as to certain essential facts In regard t;j the history of the codlinc moth and of the tree?. These facts are not difficult to ob tain and there is no reason why any grower of eprles might not make the necessary ob servations to determine the proper time for these sprayinc operations. ;^'K ¦ Under tfct worst conditions ttaere will be the necessity of making three campaigns each sf-a?on acair.5t the Insect. In many regions one or tvso of these might be omitted. How raufh may be omitted will have to be de termined by the conditions and the locality. The firrt campaign is intended for the pcison- Ins of the calyx cup of the apple and re quires spraying from above and more than ':¦,.' application, if the blossoms are not uni form in time of opening. The second cam psign is timed by the appearance of the moth in the spring and requires a method of spray- Ing different from that of the first cam paign, the idea being to cover every part ef the leaf and fruit with poison. The third campaign is for the . later worms and the times of beginning and closing this attack are determined by the production of pupae, from which moths will hatch that season, and lay eggs for another brood of worms. The danger to foliage by poison Is greatest during this period- Berkeley Office San Francisco Call, 214S Center Street, March 29. Full directions for destroying the codling moth, the enemy of the apple trees of California, are contained in a bulletin issued at the University of California to-day by Professor C. "W. Woodworth of the entomological de partment of the College of Agriculture. Professor Woodworth directed the war with sprays against the tenacious lit tle insect all of last season in the Pa jaro Valley and is therefore qualified to tell the orchardists of the State the way out of loss and ruin. The campaign demonstrated to Pro fessor Woodworth one thing and that Is that arsenical sprays are the only real remedy for the codling moth. There fore he lays considerable stress on this point in his bulletin. Of all the* many suggestions that have been made for controlling the insect, none but the arsenical sprays have yielded any re sults ,worth mentioning. The others have been tried and found wanting. His advice to the orchardist is that he not attempt to experiment with any thing else, unless it be on a small scale. Paris green. Professor Woodworth finds, is the most effective arsenite in dealing with the moth. It is trae that there* are some places where paris green is likely to injure the tree, an injury that might result in greater loss than any that the moth might inflict, and even affect the crop of the follow ing year. But in most of these regions the danger of injury can be avoided by the addition of lime. On this point Pro fessor Woodworth says: '"The amount added to the spraying mixture should be the greater the more susceptible the trees are to injury. The regions in which the trees are most lia ble to injury are those where dews and fogs are most prevalent. Five or ten times as much lime as paris green is the proportion recommended in the most moist regions. The amount of paris green commonly used and found very satisfactory is one pound for 150 gallons. Policeman John P. Scanlan wa» ar rested to-day on a charge of battery preferred against him by John J. Mul vey, a crippled newsboy, and a com plaint has also been lodged against the patrolman with the Police Commis sioners, charging Scanlan with conduct unbecoming a peace officer. The po liceman and Mulvey quarreled over a bet made on the Britt-Ccrrbett flght, which Scanlan won. Mulvey was not on hand with his money the next day and it is charged that he was accused by Scanlan of "welching." and that when this was denied it angered the officer and he attacked Mulvey and kicked him, injuring him to such an extent that he had to take to his bed. When arrested on the battery charge Scanlan put up $30 bail and was given his liberty. '¦¦'.'. Mulvey says he has several eyewit nesses to the treatment he received. He claims he would have had his money on hand if Scanlan had given him a little time. He had bet $30 on Corbett against Scanlan's $19 oo Britt.

McClymonds, S. D. Water man, F. T. Moore, D. R. Angsberg and Dr. Sarah Shuey. Just before ,the noon recess the following committee on resolutions was appointed: Perhaps th» most important work under taken by the government of the Philippines Is that designed to provide for the Filipinos an opportunity to learn the Knglish langua?p, the knowledge of which it is proposed to con vey with a distinctly practical purpose in view. The Spanish policy of preventing the Filipinos In many Instances from learning the Spanish language and of looking v.ith distinct disapproval upon the use of this language by the natives is a policy Fometlmes pursued to make a subject peoplft feel Its subordination. One of the practical advantages of a. knowl edge of the English language for the • people of the Philippine Islands la that It will supply a common medium of communication where no such medium formerly existed, and in view of what has already been achieved .the task of giving the educated part of the people the practical use of a new language appears new much less difficult than at first. It is as practicable as teaching a community the use of new tools. It is our educational policy that gives us a chance of distinction, and it might be said that on it hangs the justification of our control of the Philippines. But If we turn this business over to politicians of the ordinary sort, with their indifference to the school teacher and the cultivation he represents, we shall be likely to lose the distinctive feature of the administration that has been established, with very little chance of showing in any other direction a superiority the world will ap plaud. PURPOSE IX VIEW. The government of the Philippine Islands ha». therefore, aimed to impart such knowl edge as would put. the Filipino in touch with the practical ideas and- affairs of modern civil ization. It has believed, moreover, that this might be done without educating him dut of his race, for the Japanese have found a thor ough adoption of Western arts and sciences and Western practical methods quite consist ent with an uncompromising retention of their race spirit. They have not lost their essential characteristics because they build steamships and railroads and no longer commit hari-kari, •nd there Is much In Japanese history to sup port the idea, that the Philippines may be led to accept many of the arts and practical methods of the West, while still retaining many of the distinctive qualities of their race. The educational policy of the Government of the Philippine Islands differs from that fol lowed by any other Ruropean nation in Its Oriental dependencies, and this is and must continue to be the distinguishing feature of American administration of dependencies. Without It. It might be difficult to show wherein our government of these dependencies Is likely to be superior to that of other na tions. The work undertaken by the Government In the Philippines involves the problem of one people educating the members of another, and an alien race, whose thoughts are not our thoughts, and whose motives in conduct It Is not always easy for us to understand. There fcre at the foundation of our educational ad ministration In the Philippine* He the facts of racial distinction and the question of the relation of one race to another. The professor said In part: The system of education Introduced by the United States Government in the Philippine Islands was explained this afternoon by Professor Bernard Moses, under whose direction the sys tem was inaugurated In the islands, in a lecture before the Alameda County Teachers' Institute at Hamilton Hall. The topic of Professor Moses* address was "The Establishment of Public Schools In the Philippines," and in his introductory remarks the professor outlined the history of the laws passed regarding the establishment of schools in the islands, and the division of the archipelago into the • present school divisions, thirty-six In number, all ex cept four of which are under the di rection of a regular division superin tendent. These superintendents are under a general superintendent ap pointed by the Government, who is authorized to keep in the service of the insular Government a force of one thousand trained teachers for the primary schools. In addition to these there are a number of teachers in the employ of the various municipalities. Professor Moses pointed out that the work undertaken by the Government through the Department of Public In struction was new to Americans, and was in. some respects different from the course pursued by other nations In carrying out their colonial policies.
