The Democratic county convention met
in the Court House on Tuesday at 12
o'clock. The outside attendance was
small, partly for the reason that under
the new rules, the Congressional, Sena-
torial and Judicial preferences had been
determined without reference to the
sonvention, and partly because there
was no contest except for one member
of the Legislature, and that could
scarcely be called a contest, as the candi-
dates simply submitted their names for
nomination without a canvass or an at-
tempt at working up an sentiment for
As a convention it was one of the best
representative bodies of men that ever
met in this place, for the purpose for
which they convened. Every district
in the county, had a full represen-
tationof earnest, intelligent, men
present, and by their presence and ac-
tions showed that no matter what Re-
publicans may say, or think, or hope
tor, that the Democratic people of Cen-
tre county are still awake and have no
idea of surrendering the county to their
political opponents.

The committee on resolutions reported

ed, on motion of Mr. Robt. McKnight,
to insert the one relating to an in-come
tax, were adopted with a hurrah :
The Democracy of Centre county in conven-
tion assembled, Resolved :
First. That we enthusiastically endorse the
action of President Cleveland,and the attitude
of his administration towards all public affairs
and the various interests of the country. -
Second. That we gratefully commend the
action of President Cleveland and the Ameri-
can Congress for their patriotic fulfillment of
Democratic promises in the repeal of the ob-
noxious Federal Election laws.
Third. That we heartily endorse the prompt
legislation passed by the Democratic Con-
gress, and approved by Peesident Cleveland,
that resulted in the repeal of the dangerous
Sherman law.
Fourth. That we again reiterate our hostili-
ty to the McKinley bill, which has so com-
pletely prostrated the industries of this coun.
try and increased the costs of living for our
citizens, and we demand in lieu thereof, the
early passage of the Wilson bill.
Fifth, That the present financial and econo-
mic prostration,through which this country is
now passing, is the direct and legitimate re-
sult of unwise, unpatriotic, and selfish Repub-
lican legislation ; some of which is still upon
the statute books of the country, and that we
demand the instant repeal of such Republican
legislation, and the substitution therefor of
Democratic bills.
Sixth. That we hartily endorse the adminis-
tration of Robert E. Pattison, Governor of this
Commonwealth, for his earnest and fearless
execution of the laws of Pennsylvania.
Seventh. That we urge our representatives
in the next Democratic State Convention to
use all reasonable efforts to secure the nomi.
nation of Hon. William M. Singerly for Gover-
nor of Pennsylvania.
Eighth. That we hereby pledge our united
and earnest support to both the state ticket
and the county ticket this day nominated.
Resolved, That we favor an income tax, as
proposed by the Wilson bill, believing it to be
a measure that will, to some extent, equalize
taxation between those upon whose shoulders
the burden of government exactions have al-
ways fallen the heaviest—the middle and
poorer classes—and those whose wealth is
hidden from the tax assessor, and will require
the later to bear, at least, a portion of tha ex-
penses of protecting their own property.

The Pennsylvania State College; Com-
The Class of 94 is Graduated —The Twenty-
eighth in the History of the Institution. More
People and Better Entertainment Than Ever
Before.—The College Future Predestined.
The balf of June is gone and with it
the twenty-eighth annual commence-
ment exercises of the Pennsylvania
State College. Another class has been
sent out by the State’s highest institu:
tion of learning to compete in the pro-
fessions and arts with the graduates of
other colleges. And time, the inexor-
able judge, alone will render the decree
as to their success. :
Sunday June 10th was the baccalau-
reate Sunday, when the Senior class
listened to the learned Rev. George T.
Purves D. D., Professor of Bible his-
tory in the Princeton Theological Sem-
inary. His sermon was excellent and
thoroughly appreciated by the many
people who filled the chapel.
The opening day of the week brought
hosts of strangers to the College and ere
night had come every room in the town
had been taken and the University Inn
was filled with extra cots. During the
afternoon of Monday the annual inter
class athletic contest was held on Beav-
er field. The rivalry between the Col-
lege classes as to which one would score
the most points and secure the '92 Class
cup led to the giving of a very pretty
contest, but notwithstanding the num-
erous entries of the others the class of
’96 ran away with most all the events
and was the victor.
Class of "94..
In the evening the Junior oratorical
contest was the attraction that drew
many to the chapel. The program con-
tained the names of six orators who
competed for the prize and after reading
it, here appended, you will know that
things social, political and spiritual all
came in for their share of the discussion.
The men all did very creditably and
though the orations of Messrs Burkett
and Patterson seemed to please many
the judges decided that all in all Mr.
Keefer had excelled.
Oration, . . . Can Our Republic Endure ?
Charles Watson Burkett, Remington.
Oration, . . The Place of the Technical School
in an Educational System :
Robert Mathias, Chalfont.
Oration, "0. . Church and State :
David Leslie Patterson, Jr., Allegheny.
Oration, . . Popular Education in Citizenship :
Melvin Jesse Keefer, Sunbury.
Debate, Resolved; That Independence in Pol-
itics is Better than Party Adherence:
Affirmative, Budd Gray, Tyrone
Negative, William Mitchell Whitten, No-
Announcement of Judges’ Declsion.
Since the length of the commence-
ment week has been shortened Tuesday
has usurped Wednesday’s former right
to be called the ‘big day,” and this year
it made a record for itself that puts to
shame any of the turnouts ever attracted
to the College in former years. As has
always been the case, the general cause
of wonderment was ‘‘where did all the
people come from ?”’ and such a bevy of
pretty girls,why there was ona for every
man in the institution and hordes of the
poor dears who had to content them-
selves with their chaperones the while
they cast envious eyes on their more
fortunate (?) sisters who had succeeded
in monopolizing some man or other,
The routine began with the meeting
of the alumni association in the morn-
ing at 8:30, It was well attended and
continued its organization by electing
Howard Walton Mitchell Esq., '90, of
Pittsburg, president, John Price Jack-
son, '89, of State College, secretary and
treasurer ; and Prof. Wm. H. Buck-
Lout, vice president of the College was
continued as historian. The association
re-elected Gabriel Heister, of Harris-
burg, as alumni trustes.
At 9:45 Lieut. McCaskey called out
his artillery squad and fired the Guber-
natorial salute of seventeen guns, then
the annual meeting of the Board of
Trustees was held. The directors of the
big institution just finished their work
in time to head the procession that
formed in the old College building and
proceeded to the armory, where the
alumni dinner was served.
To the strains of Meyer’s orchestra the
guests took seats about the many tables
and were soon making practical illustra-
tions of their appreciation of caterer
Achenbach’s dinner. With the last
course served the Hon. Francis Jordon,
president of the Board of trustees, rapped
| for order and as toast master called on a
number of the distinguished visitors for
talks. They were all of the post-prandial
order, happy and eulogistic of the Col-
The dinner was hardly over when a
thunder shower dampened the ardor of
those who anticipated seeing the cadets
give their annual exhibition drill, It
wasn't of long duration, however, and
instead of interfering made the atmos-
phere delightfully cool and refreshing
by the time the **{all in” was sounded.
The drill, as usual, was excellent though
the pity is great that tactics have lost ;
nearly all the pretty manouvers that at |
' one time characterized it.
Military has
gone more to the practical lately, leav-
ing the beautiful as altogether unneces-
sary. The commander, Lieut. E. W.
McCaskey and his cadet corps deserve
much credit for the fine showing made
on Tuesday. The firing by battalions
being especially note-worthy.
At the meeting of the delegates and
alumni to elect trustees, which was held
at two o'clock. Gen. Jams A. Beaver,
Bellefonte, Capt. Chas. W. Roberts,
West Chester, Cyrus F. Fox Esq., Read-
ing, and the Hon. Francis Jordon, Har-
risburg, all old members of the Board
were re-elected and Hon. Chas. W.
Stone was chosen to fill the unexpired
term of the late Judge Orvis.
The evening program began with the
annual address before the alumni by the
Hon. Marriott Brosius, of Lancaster,
member of congress. It was delivered
in the chapel and the crowd that packed
the pretty little assembly hall were re-
paid when they heard him handle the
theme “College and Country.”
After the address the members
of the Faculty held a reception
in the armory which lasted un-
til eleven o'clock then the older peo-
ple went home to rest so that they
might be up bright and early for the
final exercises in the morning.
Possibly the greatest attraction of the
day was the danca given by the Adelphi
club at the University Inn in the eve-
ning. The large dining room of the
new hotel certainly presented a gay ap-
pearance when filled with the young
guests of the College social organization.
Stopper & Fiske’s orchestra furnished
the music and the wide corridors and
verandas of the hotel furnished de-
lightful retreats from the ball room.
Wednesday morning dawned bright
and clear, but cooled by the storm
of the night previous. By 10 o’clock
the time for the opening of the
graduation exercises the walks and
buildings were fairly alive with friends
of the class of 04 and others who had
been led thither by curiosity to see what
kind of a place the so much talked
about Pennsylvania State College is.
Standing room was at a premium in
the chapel when the opening music be-
gan. Then followed the invocation and
the introduction of Walter Blair Waite,
‘Water Street, the first of the class ora-
tors. His subject was ‘the Mission of
the American Scholar.” Arthur George
Guyer, Warrior's Mark, followed on
the subject, ‘“Macrocosm and Micro-
cosm.’”’ The oration of Lewis W. Mat-
tern, Warrior's Mark,on “Silent Forces’
followed ; then almost before the assem-
blage had time to realize that it was
intensely hot in the chapel the valedic-
tory oration was announced and Boyd
Anspach Musser, of State College, said
the formal farewells of his class to all
friends and associations held dear.
The address to the graduating class
was made by William Pepper, M. D.,
L. L. D., provost of the University of
Pennsylvania. He did not announce 9
subject, but talked for a short time gon-
gratulating P. S. C. on its remarkable
growth. One of his expressions being,
“from a comparatiyely well known col-
lege with only eighty-four students in ’82
it has grown until to-day it stands sec-
ond to none of the technical institutions
of the State.” From this line of praise
he drifted into a dissertation on the
needs of practical learning and expressed
the hope that the usefulness of technical
learning would become more and more
recognized. His talk was short and he
left the audience wanting more, rather
than waiting for an end.
The president of the College after a
brief talk to the graduates presented them
with their diplomas and conferred the
following degrees :
M. S. on Geo. M. Downing 88, pro-
fessor of Electrical Eagineering at the
University of Now Burnswick, Canada;
M. S.,, on Geo. M. Kessler, Dickinson
College, of Altoona ; C. E., on Thomas
A. Gilkey, "91, of New Castle ; E. E.,

degree of B. S. was taken by all the
members of the graduating class.

as follows : First, Messrs. Brewer, Guyer
and White. Seconds, Messrs. Hench,

examination on entering college, was
awarded to W. H, Feas, Philadelphia.

Keefer, Sunbury, and the Orvis prize in
mathematics,for the Sophomore,year to
Walter B. McCaskey, Lancaster; W. E.

Wellsboro. »
Dr. Atherton concluded by announec-
ing the following changes in the faculty :
Thos. W. Kinkaid promoted from assis-
tant to associate professor in mechanical
engineering. J. Price Jackson, T. E.
Foss and J. M. Willard from associate
to full professorships in electrical engi-
neering, civil engineering and mathe-
matics respectively. W. M. Fowell was
appointed assisiant professor of practical
mechanics. Frederick Lewis Patty, of
Norfolk, N. H., was given the assistant
professorship in English, vice Fred P.
Emery resigned. W. H, Rebhun '94
was announced as the successor of W,
H. Walker '90 Ph. D., instructor in
chemistry who resigned to accept a
similar position in the Boston Institute
of Technology.
These announcements concluded the
program. The graduates received a last
congratulation, from professor and stu-
dent,then wended their way to relatives
waiting to carry them off to the new
life where the results of their college
labors will have severer tests that ever
examinations gave. The class of ’93

Though the commencement ended
with the morning many of the visitors
remained at the College for the Junior
reception, to the Seniors, given in the
armory Wednesday evening. A ball
game between the College team and the
Demorests of Williamsport, during the
afternoon attracted a great crowd. The
collegians put up a beautiful game and
won from the visitors by the score of 7
The Assembly in the armory in the
evening was by fur tbe finest social
event ever given at the College. Youth
and beauty were dominant and the
immense dance was a scene of gay
splendour. :
Possibly the most notable and in the
words of a distinguished visitor ¢‘the
most gratifying feature” of the-com-
mencement was the presence of such a
number of well-known people from all
over the State. During the entire time
there were men high in social, political
and financial, circles interested in the
various exercises and regular attendants
too. Such a fact is evidence of the grow-
ing popularity and worth of the institu-
The commencement was a delightful
success and none dare gainsay it.
