WiUT-tiS iXU PRESIDENT KELLY OF COLLEGE LIFE In Old ' England Graphically De scribed in the Missive Received Yesterday THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP Some Interesting Points Told of Un known to the Average Person Very Interesting. President Kelly, of Earlham Col lege, has received a very interest ing letter from 0. E. Hamilton, of this city, who is now a student at Oxford College, England. Hamilton was formerly a student at Earlham. There is one strong point in the fol lowing letter that is brought: out very strong and that is that the work that Mr. Hamilton did while at Earlham places him on the same standing as it would in a college in that country. The letter is writ ten on monogramed paper with-a H-very blaek- bord-er. .. This bcrderr sig nifies that the college is still in mourning for Queen Victoria, but Mr. Hamilton explains it in a differ ent way. The letter is the follow ing: v Pembroke College, Oxford, Eng., Nov. 1, '04. My Dear President Kelly The Oxford and Oxford life that I heard so much about last summer has proven a surprise in reality in a great many ways. I have never passed two weeks of such fascinat ingly interesting experiences as my first two weeks here. To say that we were received with polite hospi tality is not sufficient. At Pembroke we have been petted, lionized and treated much better than we deserve, I am very sure. There are four of us and we have been present at functions where there was no one else but upper classmen, still we are regarded as freshmen. That brings me to a difficulty which I will try to explain to you. If I can get these authorities hero to believe that I have completed two years at Earlham College, that I have carried a full course and pass ed all the examinations with honor, I will be given the privileges of a Junior Foreign Student, which will, enable me to get my P. A. with hon ors much more easily and get a good start on an M. A. In fact, all that I will lack will be paying fees for a couple of years. Now, I have the statement I got, last summer but they don't understand what a "cre dit'' is, or a " recitation," Again they can't conceive of so many ? ex aminations. You knew, here a fel low never takes but .two examina tions in his whole course : ,. Modera tions and Finals. As soon as I get "Mods" off my hands I will begin on Littera ITu manives, majoring in Philosophy. However, this course requires an al most perfect knowledge of Greek and Latin, besides German and French. As far as I can see a man is supposed to read every book that was ever written on philosopy in the original language. I have ap plied for an honor school and hope to make a first. I might add that I am a little nervous about it because this is the hardest school here and few men ever get above a third class. Gladstone took a first. Well, I hope the faculty will give me a favorable consideration in this mat ter and permit me to have the honor , (Continued on' fourth . page.) EX-GOVERNOR PATTISON'S HOME TO BE SOLD.

DRAFT OF DILL COMPLETED BY COUNCILMAN O'NEAL TO BE PRESENTED AT SOUTH BEND TO MUNICIPAL LEAGUE Board of City Commissioners to Be Done Aiway With Other Fea- v W - tores. The draft of tho new civic im provement bill has been completed by Councilman O'Neal and he will present, it the session of the Indiana Municipal League tobe held at SouL Bend. I that body approves' the bill it Will be presented to the next legislature A large number of changes' are made in Mr. O'Neal's bill from"; the law that is in effect at the present time. It favors the old Barret flaw in one way in that it provide that assessments for im provements be made according to the number of front feet of abutting property?: The new bill does aAvay with the board of city commission ers. One of the neAv bills. proAisions is thatthe common council of a city may by Ordinance provide for the construction or the reconstruction of alleys streets or other" public ways, tmd side walks upon the pe tition bf resident oAvners of a ma jority rot the front or abutting feet of the real estate abutting on such improvement, or Avithout a petition by a Aibte of two thirds of thj coun cil. HteVcitj shall pay the cost of interscrtions, : When the improAC- construe- tion of a sewer it is provided that the cost shall be assessed according to benefits, this is about the same provision as the present law with the exception that the assessment shall be made by the board of public im provements and the city engineer in stead of city commissioners. Under the neAv law city engineers will be required to make full reports to council after improvements have been made, showing the total cost of the improvement, the name of each property owner on each street, or al ley improved, the number of front feet owned by respective property owners and the amount of cast for the improAoment due upon each lot affected. The bill provides that no property .shall be assessed for more than half its valuation. This will give ample protection against injus tice to all property owners. Property owners may be assessed for the sweeping of streets accord ing to the number of feet of abut ting property. The new laAV pro vides that the : net revenue derived from any city or municipal electric light plants or water Avorks shall be applied exclusively to the reimprove ment. or the reconstruction of the streets or other public Avnys'of the city. This last provision ;.s in the last section of the laAV and is ' sup xsed to be one of the most import ant ones in th entire law. "ER'S ENVOYS EN ROUTE TO WASHINGTON. Washington, Noa 15.
