Teddy that he should findione good

The New York correspondent of
the Philadelphia Ledger writes: (1
"Twenty-five years ago there were a
12r0 deaths from small pox in this t
city. In 188f there were 451 deaths
ancd in 1894 there were no deaths
frou the disease. This year there
have been ten deaths. At the health
department it is said that small pox
epilhUics come about every seven
years, anid are due to a falling offlt
in vaccination. Only one (ase in
ten- now results in death."
Henry M. Neil, the cotton ex.
pert, is out with another report of
the cotton crop, and now says l
that the cotton crop of the United
Stales will not exceed 9,900,000
bales, or 200,000 leess than the es
timate of the Department of Agri- I
culture. This report is taken to be
more correct than any given out,
and it will have a tendency to
stiffen cotton prices. The Agri
cultural Bureau did the cotton states
a great deal of harm in it,, exagera
Prepyamtions are anow: Iiog ratde
to plant an acreage througbhout the
ootton-growing countries, which,
with an average yield, means from
11,000,000 to 12,500,000 bales.- A
12,000,000 bale crop means 4-cent
cotton shortly after the opening of
the znark6k It' f foolish for cut

The Baton Rouge Advocate in an

DEMOCRATIC REORGANIZATION. of
The Daily States i. a well written Sc
editorial oa the mneh disoassed ques
tion of t)eWocrat1s reorganization, th
Certain criticismr whitb have ap- c
peared in the press since thtelate elec
tion Ipointing out the opportunities jf
the Democratic party and its mis- la
takes seem to have been construed
y a great iasay papers as being a ea
demand for an immediate reorgani- fe
zation of the L)emocratic party. In- ai
deed, some of the harsher critics of fe
that party, some who in recent years tl
have not contributed much to its up- h
building, have seized the occasion to 1
loudly clamor for such a reorganiza- tl
tion, but such clamors are not likely di
to have great a eight with those who d
have followed through storm andu
stress the fortunes of he Democracy. I
IEx-President Cleveland struck the f,
nail squarely on the head when ie t
declared that reorganization was im- p
practicable at the present time and i
its advocacy hurtful to the best in- I,
terests of the party; that the time i
had now arrived for thoughtful con
sidleration, earnest effort, at coneiii- r
ation and a return to first pri'i:illeS. 1
j'he needs of the party conuld not be
more strikingly summed up in a few
words. Hasty or intemperite (rlti
cism, crimination and recrimination,
instead of helping to wend matters c
can only serve to make them worse
and to drive farther away elements
that are absolutely essential to luture
At the present moment Mr. Bryan
and ex-.President Cleveland represent i
the two extremes of Democratic
ideals, each has at his back a hand of t
devoted admirers and followers, and I
e any attempt at reorganization at
9 this time would necessarily mean an
effort to cast the fortunes of the
party in aecordance with the views
of one or the otlier of theue leaders!
e representing the extremes of partiy
h polioies. To attempt to commit the
Iparty to an acceptance of either at
the present moment would he to ere
ate a yawning chainm in tinhe midst (of
if the party ranks and to divide rather
n than cement the party. Such a
course, it is needless to observe',
would he to commit political suicide.
In its future encounters with Repub
licanism entrenched in power the
l)emocracy has need of the services
of both Mr. Bryan and ex-P'resident
d Cleveland. In order to win the
efforts of its leaders must he directed
to closiug up the breach and to
. strengthen the weak points. It is a
time to attract and not to repel.
The policy of exclusion. and of pun
iahment by political proscription has
been carried too far already and the
o party has paid dearly for it in two
it successive and progressively over
s whelming defeats. The tearing down
a process indulged in from motives- of
personal revenge has operated with
destructive force upon the solidarity
le and the moral of the party and the
time has now come to build up, to
1e draw together all the forces that
1, make for Democratic unity and sue

A consammiatiou to be desired; if, as
I we contend, the great principles of

th The opening of the session of
1900-1901, marked the beinning of
nga era ;u the history of T1ulane Uni
o versity. Preceeding the accession of
of the new president, .college spirit
he seemed to be hard to aronse, but fol

towards its proper ydaoe among the
i foremost of Southern inatitutions.
ng Irhe enrollment so far this session
ed has been very gratifying, though last
year there were 1145 students, a
larger nulmber than in any other
re Southern unmversity.
To add to the handsome collection
of buildings opposite Audubon Park,
composing the Colleges of Arts and
Sciences and of Technology, there
will soon be erected'the 'Iflton Me
morial Library, so called in honqr of
the late latnented F. W. Tilton,
whose wife has mile a donation of
$50,000 to the University for that
Regarding the student life at Tu
lane, great stress should be laid
I upon the important inauguration of
I chapel services and lectures. For a
few moments each day the students
- are assembled, at which gatherings a
f few verses from the Bible are read,
s the Lord's prayer recited, and a
l hymn sutg by a choir of students.
o On these occasons any announcements
that there may be, are wmde and fre
y ituent short talks made to the stu
0 dents by the president and members
d of the faculty. On one day in the
week, however, an address of about
e forty-live minutes duration is added
eto to the customary service. During
1- the past three months, several prom
(I inent men and scholars of New Or
- leans have addressed the students on
ie interesting and( instiuctive sulnjects.
- Tihere are two literary societies
now in existence at Tulane. "The
s. Forum" having recently been found
c I e, in addition to the time renowned
w "Glendyv Burke." These societies
i- are for the cultivation of the powers
n, of elocution, debate and oratory,
rs and in that line they are doing good
se work. Arrangements are being en
ts ergetically made to hold an intercol
re legiate debate with the University of
'Texas, which it is hoped will take
an tplace this session and become an an
nt nual occurrence hereafter.
ic There are other students of like
ofj order, among the most prominent
ad being the Cercle Francais, the Greek
at Circle, the Sketch Club and the
an Symphony Orchestra. A 'Cercle

w' Tulane, and the present club, al

y membrutership of over seventy from the
