Mr, Weber stated that his family would move here about Oct 1 next and that he would makt Columbia his borne while Col. Hardy will remain as prin cipal of the institution. The an nouncement was also made that Mr. Wtber bad secured a twenty year Icaso on the Academy. Upon his arrival here, accompanied by Prof. W. E.

M. Dedman, Col. J. C. Hardy, .f. I. Finney, Eugene Ander son and Warren Titcomb.

Mr. Weber held a regu lar reception at the hotel, numerous callers being received. After the reception at the hotel Mr. Weber went to the Military Acade my with Col.

He has a num ber rf personal friends here and his career as superintendent of the school? of Nashville has made his name conspicuous in the list of suc cessful educators, of the state. When he arrived Mr. -Weber gave out the following statement: "I aa hoped that the differences between . Cols. Hardy and Edgerton migut bnve been adjusted and that they would have continued in the management of the Academy under teir lease until Its - termination- three years hence. It was my pur pose to have applied for a lease at 1 that time. The failure of agreement betwen Cols. Hardy and Edgerton made tho property available at this time and I secured the lease of same ior a period of twenty years. Immediately j upon being notified of the decision of the board of trus tees to grant me- the lease, I wiote both Cols. Hardy and Edgerton invlt-l-ig them to remain in the faculty. I regret that Colonel Edgerton could not see h?s way clear to stay with the school. "UiAJD receiving answer from Col onel Hardy that be would take the matter up with me I made him a proposition which he accepted with out bufjesting a change. It was my purpose to make either or both of the principals such a proposition that should they remain they would be in perfectly dignified position. Colo nel Hrly will be principal of the cademy and control the student body, wh'le I as lessee, shall look af ter te tuslness affairs; aa(J,we both will see to it that the general policy of the Academy snail be to furnish the youth of the country with the best possible training. I think Col. Hardy Is perfectly satisfied with all arranpmentr and I see no . reason why . school ,secod ta noe in its class should not be maintained."
