thou read a paper w liich was ordered te be
rccordeil en the minutes as a mark of
esteem for tlie retiring president, Dr. Thes.
O, Apple. He referred te the fact that Dr.
Apple had held since 1877 two professor
ships, that the cellege had grown in
fdlkicucy and had recoUed great buuetlt
fiem his go eminent. '1 he thanks et tlie
beard were then extended te Di. Apple let
his labors lu tlie college.
It is well Uneun that after the with
drawal of He. Dr. Xeviu from the presi
dency el tlie college in lb7ll, tlie mcoine of
tlie cellege was net such as te justify the
HjHiiiumuiei a suctosser. At comiiieiico cemiiieiico comiiieiice
lnont of 1677, accordingly, Dr. Thes. (J,
Apple, proksser In the seminary, was re
quested te soreas president ter the Hum
being en anemlnil salary, with the hoi e
thai Ultimo the endow meiit or tlie cellege
would be sn Increased as te support a
salaried pirslduut. This expectation, how hew how
eei,wasnot reills-ed, and it doelcdon
Dr. Apple te remain ler tw oho ears until
lie was relieved a year age. During this
peiied he discharged the duties et the two
prnlossersliips, ene In tlie (.emlinry, an
ether iu tlie cellege, with ability; engaged

We thoreroro deem it proper te place en

labors, successful teaching, or his
ability as a scholar, a philosopher and a
thoelogiin; and et his character as a
Iteseltcil, That the thanks or the beird
are horeby extended te Dr. Apple for his
services In llie college, and that the mem
bers ofthlsbeard will ever held him In tlie
highest respect and osteeni, hoping and
praying that a kind proidence will re

XHK ANXUAI. ORATION.
Gen. iTnHttnua Views or Educational
and Polltleal Advancement The
The court heuse was well lilted en Tues
day evening with the literary societies of
Franklin and Marshall college and their
friends, te hear the annual address bv Gen.
Daniel II. Hastings. Cel. II. Frank I'shlo I'shle
nian Introduced the speaker as one who
bad always bad an appreciation of educa
tional work and been Identified with
Its promotion and development. Following
Is an abstract of Oen. Hastings' address:
" Within a week the cable has reported
an authorl7ed Interview vvltli Prlnce I) s
marck, In which that distinguished states
man declared that Ihcre has neon tee much
education both lu Germany and Russia;
that lu tlie former country it led te dissatis
faction and disapM)lntment, and iu the
latter te disaffection and ceuspliacy. There
were, he said, ten times as many peeple
educated ler the higher walks of life as
therowcre places te llll, and that further
education was making pedantic theorists
und visionaries unlit ler constitutional gov
ernment. " Nothing could better illustriite the wtde
difference between governmental sv stems
and peoples than Mich a declaration as
this. Se American statesman within the
past 100 years could have given utterance
te such a statement. It is the education of
the people, their enlightenment and the
exorciseof braid Intelligence which gives
strength te tlie best forms of constitutional
government, Education makes no class
distinction under popular forms of gov
ernment whero every inun Is a sovereign
whose woll-trained intellect Is a Bourceof
pewer net inorely for its po-sessor, but for
the state. The United States would net
have come us they did through tlie I olltl elltl olltl
eil storms and the civil waret uquartoref
a century age had it net been for the moil meil
tal breadth and character of the common
peeple, due te the unlversdltv of thelr ed
ucation. Se far from unfitting thorn ler
constitutional government,, it oquliiped
them for tlie best duties of citizenship
that citizenship which Isatoueetho foun
dation and reliance of constitutional gov
ernment. " Inte wliatsoever avocation he gees the
young man ewes It te himself, net less
than te his country, te concern liimself
vv ith public affairs. It is from the ranks of
theso best informed, most intorestol and
most Industrious that moil for public ad
ministration ure drawn. Thore are loftler
icaseus. Tills is a governmont or tlie
peeple by the peeple in just that drgrce
that the people themselvcs choeso te make
it such. It will retain its best characteristics
and wholesemo rotations te the poeploonlv
se long as the peeple shall dotermlne it
must be se. Thore iue no times when
the peeple should leave te ethers
the duties they ought te attend
te themselves, and the aggressive
interest or the ediicuted man in all polltleal
action is always te be dostred and must
always nrove bonellcliil. Thore in e always
men willing te reap the bonefit or tlie
voters' Indltlerence. As party government
Is necessary and inevitable iu n free coun
try, It is the duty of every citizen te attend
the primary meetings of tlie party with
which he acts. If honest and intelligent
men neglect sueli duties, they Uiercby
hand the control of the party ever te ethors
who may net mske Htieli uss of it as they
would doslre. There Is tee much exaggera
tion lu talk about corruption in politics and
iu public life. Olten theso most responsible
are the loudest lu complaint. Our own
pell'ics are less corrupt, and our own poli
tician, taken as a whole, am far uiore
scrupulous than theso of most free nations
have been, either anclent or medern. We
may admit that thore are iguorauce and
corruption exlsting among seme in politi
cal life In this country, but net nearly se
much as there is In Lugland or in France.
What there is we see much mero distinctly,
bocause we meet It face te face. The truth
is that our party politics are mero Intelli
gently, less dishenestly and mero honor
ably conducted than theso of Great Iintaln,
with which we are oftenost compared, and
the avorage of political morality is higher
in the United States than lu any ethor na
tion in the world.
"This will be impieved by the direct at
tention et educated men, and from time te
time a higher tene will he given te all our
affairs. Geed morals Iu public administra
tion have an elevating Inlluouce en all tlie
channels of business and indlvidu-il enter
prise. It needs no argument te inspire the
Intelligent citizen te vigilant and correct
particiiiitlen iu politics. It is the proper
disposition ofevory man te belong te hoiiie
ene or the political parties. Many loftily
profess want ofli.tercst in mattets of party
detail or political organization; and yet all
that our government is te-day is due te
party effort, and te party politics are we
indebted for most of tlie great achieve
ments iu our national career.
" It Is a tee common practice te speak
lHp-Muitly of our legislative bodies and
officials, for whom we are ourselves
primarily responsible. IT they de net suit
us we are te blame for having failed te
Intei est ourselves lu the choice of theso
who would have suited. Politics should
net be left altogether te theso w he make a
business of politics. Politics should be a
part of tlie business orevery eitlzeu. Thoi e
is always need or a strengthening Inlluouce
and practical Judgment of educated uien,
nailtcularly educated uien In business life.
Theorists ure common enough, but ene
practical thought usefiilly applicable te
man's overy-day allalrs Is worth moie te
humanity than all the vapory theories of a

Gov. Waterman, of California, addressed
a letter te Attoriiey-Gcncral Jehnsen en
