W. L. TAMKERSLEY& CO.,
Confectioneries, limits, Cigars, Tobacco,
The Dialectic Society lecture
committee have secured Hon.
Henry W. Watterson for Monday
night of Commencement. It is
not necessary to say that this will
be a rare opportunity to hear a
gifted orator and. one of the most
distinguished men in the Union.
Mr. Watterson will give his fa
mous lecture on "Money and
Morals." Of this lecture, the
New York and Washington City
papers speak in glowing terms.
At the latter place, the President
and Cabinet together with Con
gress were present and one con
tinued round of applause greeted
the distinguished lecturer from
the beginning to the end. Of
Mr. Watterson's brilliancy, and
wit, of his clear, deep thought,
and magnetic oratory, comment
is unnecessary, for these points are
too well known. It is sufficient
to say that if the Dialectic Soci
ety Committee had tried, they
could hardly have gotten a more
distinguished person or a more
gifted orator. And for this they
are to be highly congratulated
and complimented no matter what
objections may be urged as to
further arrangements in connec
tion with the lecture.
an enviable name for himself as a
lawyer of great ability. His rep
utation as a lawyer, rests chiefly
on his argument in what is known
as the "Freedom of the Press"
case in which the constitutionali
ty of the Anti-Lottery Law was
involved. Soon after being ad
mitted to the bar, he began col
lecting materials for a "History of
the origin and growth of the
English Constitution," a work on
which he labored fifteen years,
and which has made him well
known to the legal fraternity in
the United States and England
The book was published simulta
neously in London and Boston,
and received immediate recogni
tion, establishing his reputation
as an author. Mr.- Taylor's work
has been adopted as a text book,
in nine of the leading universities
of the United , States. His ap
pointment is one that gives entire
satisfaction throughout the South
and is but a just recognition of
talent and genius. The Univer
sity of North Carolina has fur
nished three of Mr. Taylor's pre
decessors, at the court of Spain,
John H. Eaton, Daniel M. Bar
ringer and Romulus M. Saunders.
THE NEW MINISTER TO
Hon. Hannis Taylor, who has
been recently appointed by Mr.
Cleveland, as Minister to Spain,
is a North Carolinian by birth,
and an alumnus of the University.
Mr. Taylor was born in New
berue, N. C, in 1851, and enter
ed the University in 1867..
In 1869, he moved with his
father to Alabama, where he has
since resided. He was admitted
to the bar at the age of 19, and
before reaching his maturity, was
admitted to practice in the State
Supreme Court. He .soon won
FIELD DAY AT TRINITY.
We note, with pleasure that our
athletic association will be repre
sented in the field sports which
will be held at Trinity Park on
next Friday the 14th.
This in our estimation is one of
the most interesting and should
be one of the most interesting
features in our college athletics.
Heretofore, our time and atten
tion have been devoted too much
to Base-ball and Foot-ball to the
almost entire exclusion of this
branch of athletics, and we have
overlooked the important fact that
a erood Track Team will tend
more to build up these depart
ments than any one thing we
could do. It will not only stim
ulate the Athletic spirit in our
University, but will give us a
wider field from which to select
trained men for the other teams.
The contests on next Friday
will consist of the following,
100, 220 and 440 yard dashes.
One mile iun, one mile walk.
140 and 220 yard hurdle races.
Running, Broad, High, and Hop
Step and Jump jumps. Putting
1 61b. hammer and 1 61b. shot, and
Those who will in all probabil
ity represent the University in
the different events are; Stanly
and Moye in 100 yard dash.
Hoke and Barnard in mile run.
Ramsey and Stanly in the Broad
jumps. Mattocks in mile walk.
Kirkpatrick, Gibbs and Guion
with the shot and hammer and
Justice and Smith in the pole
With these men we certainly
ought to win our proportionate
share of the records.
We are unable to give the
names of those who ' will repre
sent Wake Forest and Trinity but
are informed that they will be
present with a number of excel
lent men and some good, records
may be expected.
TRACK ATHLETICS IN THE
Woulditno.be a good idea to
include Track Athletics in the
Southern Intercollegiate Athletic
That association as now formed
consists of Base-ball and Foot-ball
only. But why exclude Track
Athletics ? We hope at the next
convention of tne colleges that
this important feature of our col
lege athletics may be placed on
the same footing with Base-ball
and Foot-ball, and that every
spring representatives from all tlje
colleges will meet and participate
in the field events.
Especially is the South behind
in this department of athletics; but
is it not time that we should wake
up and realize the importance of
the work? How manv of the
world's amateur records does the
South hold? We blush with
shame when we attempt an an
swer. But should it be so ? Are
not our Southern men capable of
developing into as good athletics
as our Northern brothers? Has
not this been demonstrated be
yond a doubt by the make up of
the great Northern teams, both in
Foot-ball and Base-ball? Look
at the McClungs, Kings, Green
way and Poes and a score of oth
ers. And was this not evidenced
by the visit of one of the leading
Northern Foot-ball teams to the
various Southern Universities
looking for material to take North.
So let us Southern colleges be
stir ourselves in the direction in-dictated.
