Dauglierty received A telegram at Trinidad containing the sad intelligence of the accidental death of his brother, Wm J. Daugherty, who was thrown in front of and run over by his caboose at Han Luis Fotosl, Mexico. The deceased was well known in Trinidad, having been both conductor end later yardmaster for the Atchison at tbat place. j . An incident which is reported to have happened In Albuquerque, a few days ago. shows plainly the difference between that city and Las Vegas. A sheepman drove into the town, with bis spring clip of wool, and after making the rounds of the wool buyers, was compelled to sell his wool to a speculator for '2 cents per pound. It would, have almost paid him to have driven to Las Vegas where bo could have old it for as high a. price as the! market would justify. V ; Last evening's passenger train, No. 1, jroni tne east, uonductor Murray, was delayed three hours by tne loss of a child, who fell off a car somewhere between La Junta and Belhi station. The family of foreigners, Hestler by name, were en route from Lost Springs, Kansas, to Cali fornia, there being four children with the parents. The family got off the train at Raton, and await with breathless anxiety the report from the searching party that was sent up the road from Belhi station after the missing child. .

' COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES The Third Class of Orutlunte. lroin the IOnst Las Vegas High Heliool, THI3 ORATIONS AND AIIKKS9. Much pleasure end satisfaction were ex pressed by the largo audieuos ' in tbo Tamme opera house, last evening, nfter Untuning to the ton excellent (rations by the graduates from the public school. Una oould but be impressed by the ulr of happy contentment Which clmraotorlzjd the ex ercises from beginning to end, as well as the sloiplo good taste shown in the ar rangement of the stage, the class motto, the decorations and seating of the grad uate?, board of trustees, and visitors, Prof. J. A. Wood aud tbo tires asslstuot, Mils Mary Honry, occupying the saats at the either end of the platform. Especial Intorcst pertained to this class of 11890, a It Is the first to hive completed the regular four years' course, and their record Is a most creditable one to tbelr In structors and themselves. Some of their faces have been familiar to LasVegans for many years, amidst the throng of school children, but a few. are new-comers none the lesi welcome, however, and-a real addition to the force of the class. The optimistic spirit with which they dealt with the various problems of the day was most cheering to their audittrs and showed much reflection and research. The best of success attend the ambitious, energetic glass of 18901 Tbe' most pleasing selections c:ntributed by Prof. Hand's orchestra' were a marked feature of tills successful entertainment. Las Vegas should certainly be proud of such a body of musicians, and rejoice that we can have such acceptable music from our own towtspeople. The ever-admired "La Paloma" was perhaps the choice number on a program of merit, through even numbers. Certainly, the third annual commence ment of the East Las Vegas high school was entertaining and gratifying, as well as a proof of increasing ambition and wise management on the part of the super intendent aud assistants. THB ORATIONS. "The Oak and the Mushroom" was the subject of the first oration, which was dis cussed by Miss Elsie Carrutb. Bho first drew a comparison of the growth, develop nient and -endurance of the osk and the mushroom. As the one grew up In a night, so it perished in a night; as tba oak was a century in maturing, it was strong and firm and out-weathered the winds and itorms for centuries to come. By an eny transition, the speaker then dMu39d the principles of true and false growth iu a physical and mental development, show ing that there might be a mushroom growth, mentally and physically, result ing iu disappointment. But the Blow, steady, well-trained growth of body and especially of mind wai the growth tbat would tell for good In after years. "Every wise observer know, Evtry watchiul gazer tees, Nothing grand or beautiful grows. Save by gradual, slow degrees." The next subject waj "The Cbiuese Leak," discussed by Frank Jones. lie said, among other things l '. "A complete presentment of this case is impossible, at the present time. To is is not alono due to the natural failure of smiis-glers to preserve records of their op orations. It is not wboly accountable to the impenetrability ol too uuinese tnoin selves with regard to all matters which they, with cjmmon accord, determine to keep from the olllclals. c r the putilic knowl edge of .Americans, l bess would-be bin derances are serious, by tbemselveo, but added to these is a worse ot staple still. perfect system of falsehood, which starts up at every question put to the average American or Canadian, who is preeutn- ingly in a pisition to know tbe fac's of the matter, at least, In a general way, "Now, true American citizens, shall we allow these depredations to oontinuef Shall we allow these in fid 1 foreigners to enter our country, nsalnst its laws, and deprive true Americans of their daily breartr Shall we allow tbem to arow r.'oh on tne losses or true Americans, and then go back to their native lind, and live the i est of tbelr lives in luxury f . w nat is needed is a line ox ollloeri.trom the cabinet down, who will do their duty, at all Hazards and under all circum stances. Wben all officers are true to their country, their country's- flag, and their sense of honor, these wrongs will be right ea, ana true Americans win not be crowd ed out of employment by wealth-seeking foreigners." The subject of "Evolution," followed next, it being discussed by Arnold Garlick, He started out by saying that "modern scientists, not being content with the simple statement of the Bible as to the origin of life, have advanced various theories to account for It." The speaker went on to say tbat one of these theories is that of spontaneous generation. But by careful tests by our most able scientists this theory bas been exploded entirely. An other theory of importance Is tbat of evolution," as set forth by Darwin. This theory was very popular twenty years ago. But the advance of science has put quite a different interpretation ' on the theory of evolution from that given by Darwin. La Conte, one of our most re cent and best geologists, says i "Species come in at once in full perfection aud remain substantially unchanged through out their ranges, passing out on tbe other border, other species taking their place further on in tbe zone, as if by substitution and not by transmutation." Hpeclrg evolnte and develop along their own lines, but never from one line into one of a different line or family. John Hoiman discussed in brief the sub ject of "Foreign Immigration" and its ef fects on our country. He stated tbat for Ign immigration is one peril of our country to day. To allow ignorant for eigners of all nationalities to come to our country of free institutious and be allowed to rote and to hold office, and to help shape tbe policy of our American government, is extending our freedom a little too tar, and may eventually lesult in the downfall of our free republican form of government He closed by saying: "We do not want any more poor foreigners; we have suffer ed enough already. Our motto should be, 'We must not, we shall not and we will not put up with tbis any longer.' " next luuowea ioe inaian rroolem," as discussed by Frank Parney. He started out by saying tbat the Indians are-of an unknown origin. He then proceeded to discuss the troubles In tbe past between th Indian and tbe white man. He gave vari ous theories of treatment as advocated by our leading statesmen, emphasising the theory of educating them by establishing free s chools among tboru.and teaching them how to work ond to farm as civilized peo ple do, Tbe sooner tbe tribal relation is broken up, tbe better, that they may live more independent ot each other as Ameri cans da Th subject, "Public Opinion," was ably treated by Horry Brown. He began with tbs statement that publlo opinion Is that power which from time Immemorial has ruled the world, and which will rule it to tba end of time. He showed how public opinion varie.l at times, in different suites, and in illllereut cities. What is allowed iu oue, may not be at all tolerated in another. He then sbowtd bow the - bappl'najs and prosperity of a community, city or state, depended on tbe proper education of publlo opinion. ' He discussed tbo various menus by which pub lic opinion is educated. Amoug these are the press, publlo lecturers, Christian min isters, schools, colleges aud universities. His closing sentence wast "It is to be hoped that, although tbs power of these for good is felt to exteusire'y over our broad land, they have ouly brguu tbe great work of moul ling publio opinion, and directing the thoughts of tbe on-coming generations into those avenuos of in vestigation and discovery, which will re sult in making the people of our country tbe grandest, freest, and tht happiest peo ple on earth." ..',''! "Mind and Music" was the subject dis cussed by Annie Eckel. She said music Is Gcd's best gift to man, the only art of heaven given to earth, the only art of earth tbat one takes to heaven, Every nation and every age steps forward as a separate witness to prove the existence of musical faculties and musical desires In tbe race. She spoke of the close union of mind and music, and showed how, when a person was tlred or despondent, music would cheer toe soul and relieve it of its burdens, for, although there Is not much muflc Jin mediolne, there Is a great deal of medicine in muiio. She re lated an Incident where a two-year-old child had been captured by Indians and kept until she was eight years old, when her mother found ber, but could do nothing to make tbe child understand ber until she started to sing a nursery song, which the little one at once recogulsed, and mother and child were re-united, and made happy. George Ross took as his subject, "Arbi- tratim vs. War." He began by saying tbat ever since tbe slaughter of Abel br Cain, war had been practiced by all tribes, nations and kingdoms. IP wtfTwar for tbe slightest offenses, and the universal cry was war, war everywhere. Nothing set limits to this devastating agent wben onoe set In motion by the heartless in vader, but tbe swiftly -flowing river, the snow-capped mountains and the wasting pestilence. Then, after tracing tbe hor rors of war down through the oenturies, be showed where the Idea of arbitration s emed to dawn on tbo miuds of various notions a a better way of settling diffi culties between tljem, tie urged it as a sacred duty of all to persist la arranging tbe principles of arbitration, under all circumstances, rather than to resort to the harsher means practiced, by barbarous and uncivilized nations. He closed with a prophecy which Bays; "They shall beat their sw;rds Into plowshares and their spears Into pru linj books; nations shall not lift up sword agiinst nation, neither tball they leirn war any more,' "Not vain the Melon which the prophet saw , 8k'rttn with green the Aery wasts of war. Still lives for earth, which friends so long The great hope resting on the truth of God lilvll shall ftniiBa an I vlnlnnr-A nnaa flwav Tito tired earth'sliaUbreatliealangSabbotn ine eubjec, "Modern Patriotism,:' was well treated by Irad ' Cochran. HeTTrst defined patriotism as understood in the early agos of man. Coming on down, he showed what were tbe later ideas of patri otism, saying: "When we speak of patriot Ism we think of William Tell, and William the Silent, and LaFayette.and Bolivar, and Garibaldi, and Washington, all men with awards in ctnelr Hands." - Tbe earn sentiment has been woven Into our liters ture. such as "It is sweet to die for one's country," and "Land where our fathers died," and "Columbia's heroes fought and bled in freedom's causa." He urged that modern patriotism demanded a different kind of bravery, a bravery tbat will cause men to live for one's country instead of waiting to die for it; a patriotism whioh would advocate the same standard of purity and moral obligation for both" men and women ; a patriotism tbat would spurn bribes; a patriotism that would ca'usfl a man to attend the. caucuses, to vote, to pay nis raxes, to npnc the spoilsman even In Lis own party. He closed by saying, rbe spirit that rebels, to-day,' and declares Kb independence of corporate rule and boBs rule, is tbe spirit of '78 arming itself with twentieth-century weapons, for a twentieth-century conflict." The closing address was given by Wil'. lam Woods, who obose as the. subject fof his address. "Is the Worli Growin Worsef" He began by saying: "To" un derstand tbe man thoroughly, we paust nrst know something cf tbe boyhood period, and of the child, that developed inn ine ooy; so it is necessary, if we would understand tbe social and political life of our people, to know something of the childhood period, or form the acquaint ance of the youth to know tbe man." He then proueeded to show the condition of early Bociety and the barbarous ideas held by tbe early nations. He showed bow tba nobler, sentiments triumphed over tbe baser ones, .and little by little tbe nations advanced In education, morality and oivl lizatiQU. Coming on down.be enumerated the various civilising agencies which hare been active in bringing the world to a higher standard of perfection. His closing sentence was: "Situated as we ere, la the midst of such elevating surroundings, It Is an impossibility for the world to be grow ing worse." . . . . Immediately after tbe - delivery of the orations, came tbe presentation of di plomas by J. A. Carrutb, president qf tbe school board, and the distribution of pres ents, consist. ng of books, flowers, and other suital le mementoes of tbe auspicious occasion. The very excellent and timely address to the graduating class, delivered by Mrs. J. B. Dickinson. Is published below in full THE CLASS ADDRESS.
