CLOSE OF THE FESTIVITIES AT FRANK
LIN AND MARSHALL.
The Itaccalaureate Orations Yesterday
Afternoon Degrees Conferred The
College Closed for the Summer
Vacation The Fraternity
Kaccalaurcate Orations at the College.
The graduating exercises of the class of
18S0 of Franklin and .Marshall college,
which were reported up te neon yesterday
in last evening's paper, were resumed in
the afternoon, the chapel being again
crewed by the friends of the students and
of the college. The exercises opened with
an overture " Seven Sisters" by KelTur's
orchestra, and then Mr. William 3f. Apple
of Lancaster, who divided the salutatory
honor with Mr. Xctscher, delivered an
oration, his theme being ' The Law of
Historical Progress." Law, he said, reigns
supreme in the handiwork of Ged. Order
and regularity in His creation beautifully
typify and manifest His infinite wisdom.
Frem the crudest mass of inert matter te
the highest form of developed life there is
one grand exhibition of that universal law,
whose plastic genius is co-existent with the
attributes of Divinity. It is the unfolding
of this internal principle or law in man
which, in view of his infinite faculties and
boundless potentialities, constitutes
the law of indefinite progress in
the life of every individual. The
rise and fall of nations, the migra
tions of peoples and tribes, have a peculiar
significance in the great movements of his
tory. In the successive manifestations of
an unknown power we may perceive a pos
itive law, whose effect upon the student of
history is manifest, transforming him as
by wand of a magician, a chaotic monoto
ny, disjointed and disconnected incidents
and facts, into a most beautiful, systemized
plan of development. The victory of the
ineial law finds its culmination in the tri
umph of the Divine will and the subjugation
of the powers arrayed against it. In the
advancing generations of men history is
ever changing yet ever pursuing its one
course of development, guided by the law
of progress. It is a mighty stream which
Hews ever onward guided by a power be
neath. Peer, weak man may with his hu
man efforts modify and change the .surface
of the mighty deep, but he can never
its course. Humanity ever ad
The great paean evolves from age
Thus does the law of human pre-
Assert eternal Providence
And justify thewaysef Ged te man.''
Oration--"The Victoryef Peace "Mr.
Frederick W. Bicscckcr, .Tenner X Reads,
Pa. Military achievements of the here
have ever claimed the admiration of the
world. The deeds of the general and con
queror swell en the pages of history.
Under the benign inlluence of Christianity
and civilization, however, man seeks for
something higher, mere ennobling ,e his
race, than that whose fruits arc crime and
whose natural prey arc order and freedom,
and finds that the circumstances which
have most inlluence en the happiness of
mankind arc created net by the achieve
ments of war, but in the neiselcsss revolu
tion of blessed peace, under whose inllu
ence religion, science, art, literature and
all that which tends te truly elevate and
ennoble man arc cultivated. Here wc find
the only true and permanent progress of
any people, the progress of knowledge and
power. Peace festers everything which
tends te the glory and prosperity of na
tions. It has victories in comparison with
which Marathon, Bannockburn and Bunk
er Hill fields, held sacred in the history of
human freedom, lese their lustre. They
are wen by these who conquer by patience
and suffering, laboring for a higher regard
for justice, for the elevation of fellow men ;
whose names, though net always found in
the records of man, shall be recorded
in the register of everlasting life.
That higher civilization which is coming
shall recognize the peculiar Christian sen
timent, when every people shall recognize
Ged as a common father, when distinctions
shall disappear and the various people of
the glebe stand forth as brother members
of one human family, and when the last
footprints of war shall disappear and hu
manity bow under the leadership of Him
who is above all ethers the Prince of
Music Aria, "Theu Art My Own "
Oration" The Letus Eaters" Mr.
Henry C. Eschbach, Paradise, Pa.
The orator after quoting from Tenny
son a passage describing the laud of the.
" mild-eyed, melancholy Letus-Eaters,''
dwelt at length upon the beauties of that
strange country where the sun shone from
a cloudless sky upon fruits and flowers ;
where soft, dreamy air whispered gently
through velvet foliage ; where sleepy
rivers sparkled in the sunlight like path's
of diamonds ; and beyond the smiling
lotus plants the blue mountains towered
in silence and beauty ; where the sea
waves as they retired te the besom of old
mother ocean, sank lazily te sleep upon
the sandy beach, and the mild inhabitants
reclined en messy banks, in the cool shade
feasting en the ripe, mellow fruit, and
drinking of the rich dark wine, which
caused that strange sleep te steal ever
them, in which they still saw, and heard,
and spake. Upen such lotus shores as
these is the weary, voyage-worn mariner
en life's great ocean frequently driven.
Here we would fain spend our remaining
days. But nothing in life is at rest. On
ward ! is the word, coming up te us from
the seething vertex of the crowded marts
of the metropolis. It is the lotus-eater
who sends up the cry, "Give us long rest
or death." Such has been the cry of many
a bright intellect, who, but for indulgence
in the lotus fruit, might have carved for
himself a name upon the mighty archi
trave of fame's temple, and heard the an
gelic choristers sending his praises in
swelling symphonies up te its heaven
reaching dome. Then let the lotus shores
of life be bravely avoided. Let the mark
of our life be set en pure and fertile shores,
that when the pert is reached we may " in
Elysian valleys dwell, resting weary limbs
at last en beds of asphodel."
"Die Schwarmeiei" (Fanaticism) was
the subject of the German oration of Mr.
Alfred P. Hern, of Lchighten, Pa., which
is described as a powerful and original
composition, but te which our reporter's
linguistic accomplishments arc incapauic
of doing justice.
Franklin oration .sccenu nonerj inc
Ethical Basis of Law" Mr. Frank S.
Elliet, Yerk, Pa. There is but one
spot en earth which seems te be the
magnetic pole et our moral sensibilities.
There is but one place toward which a
l effective spirit can turn as te the shrine of
the morality of the world the Reman
forum, the hallowed shrine of the world's
morality. Law is the most perfect use
and application of morality. It grounds
itself in the eternal idea of right back of
LANCASTER, PA., FRIDAY,
all phenomenal existence, and grows out
of the customs and maxims, of man in
which right embodies and expresses itself.
Laws are essential te the well-being of
society. In its fallen and degraded state
some form of external restraint is neces
sary ; but as every human institution is
subject te gross imperfections se they
must necessarily be liable te the same
error. Hence the fewer laws there are
and the nearer they approach te the idea
of justice, as it is revealed in Ged's express
commands, the higher, purer will be the
morals of society. There is a mani
fest degradation in our modern system
in the making and execution of the laws.
In their truest sense they are far from
being commensurate with equity and from
the wild whirlwind of selfish and party
spirit, they are becoming mere se. This
same immoral tendency is witnessed in the
executive and judicial functions. The
judge and lawyer are filled te satiety
with base awl dishonorable motives,
and shame aud disgrace their ifiblc profes
sions. Conscience veneration and benevo
lence, the three great pillars of the judici
ary, are reeling from their pedestals, and
the structure is tottering te its fall. The
angel of justice is in tears and weeps ever
the wrecked glories of men. He sighs, and
with an.aching heart fairs that an institu
tion, founded en the principles of virtue,
wisdom and truth, is beyond the scope of
mortals, and that the earth must continue
te be cursed with tyranny and oppression.
The source of the moral degeneracy in the
sphere of law is in the people. It is they
who send te our legislative halls political
demagogues, men faithless te their vows,
scoffers of public virtue and morality, par
tisans, tricksters, plunderers and traitors 1
It is they who place upon the bench these
who are far from being prompted by the
principles of virtue, honor and integrity
that arc the foundation stones upon which
it rests ! And it is they who shall suffer
retribution and groan in bondage at the
less of their wonted liberties. There can
only be justice among men when in the
making and execution of the law they pay
due reverence te the great laws of Ged ;
when man shall build for himself a beauteous
temple of justice, from whose portals the
moral law will no longer be exiled, but
placed upon its altar, shall' glow in its
purity, and shedding beauty and grace o'er
the soul of man, will speed away and min
gle its sweet fragrance with the glorious
effulgence of an all-wise Ged.
Marshall oration (first honor) "Spirit
ual Virien" Mr. David B. Schueder,
Bowmansville, Pa. Man, iu the presence
of a material world beholds with admira
tion the outward beauty of its various
forms, but is net content. Frem the
earliest times men have longed for a deeper
insight into spiritual realities. They Lave
had recourse te the light of human reason,
and the philosophers of the ancient world
built theory upon theory in order te arrive
at a clearer view of the true essence of
things. Yet they failed. Plate rose te a
height almost Divine. Yet even he failed
of clearing up the spiritual firmament of
man. And his school of philosophy stand
ing se high above all ethers, yet perceiv
ing itself foiled in its grand un
dertaking, despaired of the human mind
itself and fell into depths of skepticism
only equalled by the heights it had
reached. It is a significant fact that about
this point of the world's history arose an
other light in the horizon of man's spirit
ual vision. It was the Sun of Righteous
ness, whose beaming rays cast into the
shade the light of reason. It brought into
clear view man's origin, duty and destiny,
and thus solved the deepest problem of his
being. Net only was the appearance of
the new revelation foretold by the long
line of prophets, seers and sages of the
Old Testament, but the whole ancient
world was one vast prediction of this reve
lation. The philosophies of reason were
futile, ending iu skepticism, confusion,
death. The philosophy of revelation will
never fail, but will continue te upheld in
dividuals and nations. Under it man will
obtain a clearer and clearer vision of
spiritual lealities until he be merged into
the light of the eternal day.

Ya'cdictery oration " Meral Dynam

"The progressive development of phy
sical science has been the course of mod med
thought. The influencing agents, the dy
namic forces, which lay held upon man in
order te urge him en te greater spiritual
perfection, constitute a study te which at
taches the deepest human interest.
Among these directing energies the signifi
cant service performed by the higher mor
alities cannot be overlooked. The finer
and deeper excellencies in character, the
purity of soul, awaken desires in the hu
man besom of reaching heights te which
ethers have attained, strengthen minds
in their upward aspirations, and inspire
them with confidence iu the possibility of
the existence of sages and saints in the
present and future as well as in the past.
The orator discussed at length the theerki
and ideas held by the various schools of
ancient philosepy, which have arrived at
conflicting conclusions, and claimed that
inquiry into the philosophical researches
might be indefinitely extended and still the
true moral dynamic remain undiscovered.
Only when we reach the cxhaustlcss and

unostentatiously pursuing the course pe

Te the president and gentlemen of the
