The feature of this morning' ses sion came nearly the last thing on the program with the fine report of Dr. J. W. Hatch, principal of Montpeiier seminary, on the progress of the sem inary in the past nine years or since he was called from Maine to undertake the administration of the sghool. At the time Dr. Hatch was called to the school he was told that it was a sinking ship, that it had only a fighting chance. Dr. Hatch took over the school under these very distressing conditions, and from the report sub mitted this morning, he was justified in exclaiming, "It has not sunk and it will not sink." The purpose of the school, said the principal, was three fold, to develop to the utmost of their ability the physique, the intellect and the religion of every student that came under their tutelage. It is no small task, he said. In many cae there hsa been failure, but he ex plained that he. the trustee, and the faculty clearly bear in mind that to fail is not a psrt of their creed, and that if anything within their ability can be done to prevent failure every effort will be made to see that it is done. This past year the school enrolled a student body of 200, a surplus of two or three over the adequate rooming fa cilities at the seminary. Suih has been the gain in student body in recent year that it has been necessary to add to the expense of the school in the na ture of providing sufficiently for the care and keep and Instruction of this gain. During these year the expenses have increased proportionately more than the income. A recent installation of a steam heating system in the dor mitories, with the neceary collateral repairs and other additional repairs, has made an expene item in the past two years of over 120.0(H). Since Dr. Hatch's connection with the school a gain in the finances of the school hss been msde i leap and bounds; a large share of the debt ex iating over the school at hi entrance, due to deficit, ha been taken care of out of the running expene of the M-hool. With the rnormnu expenditure of the past few year Dr. Hatch said IT.at he felt the school wa on a credit able, comfortable and safe foundation for at lrat four or five year and that the income of that period will he more than enouch to take care of that outgo. Double the amount of insurance i now on th seminary property, and the endowment fund ha grown mate rially within the lt nine year. Tn" reference Jo the seminary que tnn. Rev. A. W.
