versity win formally opened, and the
great lubonitorv in which the exrcises
were held was packed to overflowing.
When the Oliio u vernor appeared,
arm-in arm with President W. R. Har
per, it seemed HI if Bedlam had broken
loose. Cheers and couintr-nlieer, col
lege yella and cluss yell4, and the pip
ing voices of the girl students, while
they waved their ciimbric handker
chiefs in uuiion, all combined t
make a splendid but withal
noisy ovation. After tbe singing
of patriotic selections Governor
McKinley was presented an 1 spoke for
five minutes on "the hatchet story,"
dealing with that mueb-told-of , n.l
mucb-written-of alleged iucideutin tbe
life of Washington in a half humorous,
half serious vein, especially dwelling
on the moral sought to be conveyed re
garding the necessity of absolute truth
and veracity in all the relatious of life.
He laid emphasis on the fact that tbe
future of the country rested upon tbe
students and scholars of the present
generation, and urged that nothing was
more calculated to promote the peace
and prosperitv of the Republic than the
observance of patriotic duties by the
rising generation. Tbe governor re
ceived an ovation when he left the hall.
THE DEMAND 10U ADMISSION TICKETS
Between 6,000 and 7,000 people of
both sexes crowded the auditorium and
its approaches this afternoon to par
ticipate in tbe recognition of tbe day
under tbeanspiras of the Union leagu
of Chicago. Admission was solely by
ticket and fully 4,000 applications were
received after the lust of the coveted
pasteboards had been given out.
Upon tbe platform were ministers
representing nearly every denomina
tion, the presidents of the variom uni
versities and colleges and of the city
elnbs, General Milei and his staff and
other special guests of tbe club. The
exercises opened with a rendition of
patriotio airs The invocation wai
pronounced by Charles H. Fowler, of
Minneapolis, and President John P.
Wilson felicitously introduced the ora
tor of the day, Governor William Mc
Kinley, and the applause that followed
continued for several minutes.
The governor spoke for one hour,
eulogizing Washington and drawing
lessons from his life, but avoiding all
political references. X tie exercises
closed with singing of "America" by
the andience. It had originally been
arranged that the governor should be
escorted from tho Union League club
to the Auditorium by tbe inembn of
the Cook County Republican Marching
club, in evening dreBS, silk bat, white
umbrellas, a band of sixty pieces, and u
carriage with six wi.itu horses
Ol jnctions to this prograinm-, how
ever, were made by several members of
the Union league on the ground that
the governor was the guest of that in
stitution, and that partisan politics
hould not enter into the celebration
of tbe day. Th members of the Re

upon carrying out their programme,

THE FATAL CORNELL FUN.
President Bchurman, of the University,
Biaoueaed the Accident
ITHACA, N. Y., Feb. 22 -To a United
Press reporter, President Soiiurman, of
Cornell university, in speaking of the
fatal accident at the freshman dinner
eald: "In connection with this Bad
and deplorable circumstance two facta
should be stated: First.it is not known
that the perpetrators of the act are
members of tbe uuiverslty, second, it
is kuowu that the act was not the act
of the sophomore class or of any other
clans in the university. The individual
offenders, whoever they may be, will,
it is hoped, be discovered aud punished
according to the severity of the offence.
It has been the policy of Cornell uni
versity to treat its etudents not as
school boys but as men,
"They are answerable to the law for
their conduct aud tho civil authori ties
have for years past understood that no
immunity was expected or desired by
the university authorities for student!

This policy has resulted iu a very high
standard of character and condnct

The coroner summoned all the stu

Tte Statcn Island Millionaire Refuses
to Be Interviewed in
New Yohk, Feb. 28, Erastus Wiman
steadfastly declines to receive visitors
since his incarceration iu the Tombs,
with the exception of his lawyers and
members of his family. Warden Fal
Ion says that Mr. Wiman, under the
circumstances, does not appear unduly
depressed, and seems to take matters
easy. After the first great surprise at
his arrest he seemed to hare summoned
mutdi courage, an I doos not betray any
unusual amount of anxiety.
Iu response to a uote requesting an
iuterview, Mr Wiuiau sent out the
following written statement: "Would
by very glad to do so, but under the
advice of General Tracy will make
no statement till my turn comes. Am
sorry to deny anything to a newspaper
man, but must adhere to that determi
nation for the present.
In response to inquiries sent in by
friends this morning, Mr. Wiman in
variably returned word that he was
comfortable. Sumo of Mr Wiman's
friends maintain tndsy that he would
not accept bail, if it should be pro
cured. Tby think that Mr. Wiman's
specnlatious in Stateu Island real es
lat", wl ich has naturally depreciated
iu value, involved him to a great ex
tent, and that Caen, driven to deepora
tion, he did wrong.
Ernstns Wiman has been conspicuous
in baelnoal circles in tbe United States
since 1808, and of resent rears has also
been before the pnbilo constantly as a
philanthropist an I as a writer on socio
logical questions He is a foreigner by
accident of birth. His parents were
both citizens of the United States. Ue
was born In Churohville, near Toronto,
in liW) His father was a poor me
chanic. Wiman begau earning his living
early as a newsbov, and between times
he (licked tip some edncition at public
sohools. When 10 lie got a job iu tuo
Toronto Globe as a roller boy and fin
ally got to be a printer, lie drifted
Iroin typesetting into writing ou the
markets and finance for the Toronto
Globe. His fame as a niarketmaii spread
so that when R. (J Dun & Co. wanted
to start a branch of their commercial
agency in Toronto, in 1881, tbe agency
was offered to Mr. Wiman, and he ac
cepted it. Four years later he came to
the New York office. He insisted on
the Arm branching out its bu-iuess,
and aarried out this policy until R G.
Dun & Co, instead of having sixteen
ngODOiet had 103.
Soon after he came to New York he
became interested in the development
of Staten island. H i invested all the
money ho eould rink in property there,
and devoted the greater part of his
time to improving it. He got control
of the Staten Island Rapid Transit
railroad, and of the ferry to Staten
Island, and managed them so as to de
velop both shores of the island. It was
through his effort in later years that
the bridge over the Kill von Knll
was luilt and tho Ualtiuiore and Ohio
railroad got an eastern outlet to New
York city. There bus been practically
no great improvement ou Staten Island
since the day Mr Wiman went there
that he was not interested in, directly
Two years ago he was supposed to
bra very rich man. His fortune was
estimated to b uot less than $:i.0U0,U0l)
and some placed it at fi.OUO.OOO.
Ah a public speaker and as a writer
Mr, Wiman has been most noted for
his advocacy of commercial union be
tweeu this country and Canada, He
has duvoted a great deal of time uud
luoniyin helping along tho growing
sentiment of this annexation. Mr.
Wiman lias been a prolific writer for
the uiag.zines and newspapers. Ho
wrote a book addressed to voting men
on the way to achieve business suc
