Action of Students Affaire Committee
in Refusing to Reinstate Suspended
Men Brings Situation to Acute CM
sis Tliree Hundred Student Sign
Statement Declaring Tlietuselvea
Equally Guilty Mass Meeting Is
Planned for Tonight,
Stanford University, Mar. 20. The
student affairs committee today re
fused to reinstate the 12 men sus
pended by the student affairs com
mittee because of the fact that they
were known to have been members
of a crowd of 300 men who made a
demonstration in front of the home
of Professor Clarke, chairman of the
committee, because of an unpopular
ruling made by that committee In re
lation to the drinking question.
This action brings the situation at
Stanford to an acute crisis. Three
hundred students yesterday signed a
statement that they were equally cul
pable with the 12 and that If the sus
pended men are not reinstated, would
walk out.
Yesterday afternoon the entire stu
dent body met and passed resolutions
apologizing for the demonstration and
petitioning that the men suspended
be allowed to come back.
Th action of the committee is con
demned by the entire Stanford stu
dent body and It is said many of the
faculty oppose it. In fact one mem
ber of the student affairs committee
resigned rather than follow" Presi
dent Jordan's orders in regard to the
drinking question.
It was the Introduction of this pol
icy hy the new committee that caus
ed tho outbreak. Tonight a mass
meeting of the students Is expected
an 1 radical action will be taken.
This afternoon 300 students who
signed the confession are in a line
before the committee rooms await
ing an opportunity to personally de
elare the fact that they were In the
crowd that made the demonstration
It is probable that more than the
fit st 300 will enter ple;is of guilty. It
is rumored on the Stanford campus
that the Stanford alumni body are
taking steps to urge the board of trus
tees to ask Jordan to resign.

Miners lose Grub ami Agree to Shoot
"Five Finger Jimmy" at Sight.
About 250 miners are said to be
spending the winter on Little, Gaines
and Folger creeks, and so many
caches had been robbed that the mi
ners, having no other redress, band
ed together and took oath to kill at
olght a person known as "Five Finger
Jimmy" against whom much evidence
of guilt had been adduced, says the
Seward, Alaska, Gateway.
From one cache there was stolen
over 2000 pounds of provisions. With
flour selling at $50 per hundredand
nothing retailing for less than )1,
and all provisions scarce, It Is evi
dent that the miners are In no mood
to be trifled with. The chances are
that "Jimmy" will meet with sum
mary punishment before the legal
authorities can secure his arrest and
trial If he should fall Into the hands
of the suffering miners.
