It is expected that work oil" jthe new Presbyterian - Church, which is to re place the old First Presbyterian Church, will bejin within the next month. There is some difficulty in getting brick. The contract calls for completion of the new building by Oc tober 1st As soon as the Penitentiary case is decided the Governor will calla meet ing of his Council and recommend the loan, from the State Treasury, of the $6,000 which the Legislature failed, by an oversight, to appropriate for the support of the criminal insane. It is very likely that the Governors recom mendation will be adopted. The A. & At. College. i. Th members of the committee on reorganization, appointed by the trus tees of the A. &M. College at their recent meeting, are how making in quiries and investigations into the work and management of the college, with a view to ascertaining what changes in the faculty should be made. It Js expected that a meeting of the committee will be held next week. A report will be submitted to a full meeting of the board in June. ; (Until they do meet and take aome action it is impossible to say just what changes will be made. ' It seems to be thriplan now, however, to request the resignation of Mr. F. E. Emory, the professor of agriculture, and elect Mr. W. F. Massey, the present professor of botany ana horticulture, as pro fessor of sericulture and horticulture. In such event a new professor will be chosen for the chair of biology and botany. Such an arrangement has the merit of combining the theoretical work under one man, and the practi cal work under another. It is said that' Mr. W. J. Peele,- of this city, is a candidate for bursar of the college, the position now held by Mr. sutler. ! ' Butler's Book-keeping has been anything but a grand suc cess, it will be remembered that soon after appointmenfhe got things into a tangle and it took a special committee some time to straighten them out. Recently, when the college wanted a statement of its r finances, for a report to the Legislature, it found a similar state of affairs existing. Again special help was called in and it took-the com mittee three weeks to bring order out of chads. Finally, when the com mittee did succeed in hnding out something about the financial condition of the college they discovered that some departments had not spent their allowance, while others had been permitted to go away over theirs. Because of this the trustees, at their recent meeting, passed a reso- ution to the effect that no professor shall spend more than the amount al- owed by the trustees for his depart ment. In case he does so he shall re place the excess with his own salary. For some reason this resolution was never given out for publication. Another Change, j Another, change contemplated by the reorganization committee is the aooiition ot tne omce oi Director oi the Experiment Station a position now held by Mr. W.
