JAM ES WOOD GREEN
The Kansas University Law School.
From the very moment the westward wan-
derer set foot upon the soil of Kansas, that
Territory was designed to become a great
State. Here, like a huge slate tipped to
the east and one corner broken and gone, it
stretched, and on it was written the song of
freedom afterward to be sung by the nation.
YVas it any marvel that with the west-
ward march o-f civilization and freedom there
should be the germs of learning and knowl-
edge? These seeds have grown into a plant.
That plant has borne fruit. and to-day Kan-
sas has a University of which an older State
might be proud, a Universitybaptized in
the blood of a war fought for freedom. The
Kansas State University sprang into exist-
ence by an act of, the Legislature in 1864.
Ah! T'hat beginning, how small compared
with the Kansas University of to-day! Al:
though in every alumnus, heart there is
cherished a grateful remembrance of his
Almer Mater, yet it is beyond the present
moment to speak the praises, to chronicle the
history of our University as a whole, how-
ever pleasant the task might be. It is one
branch alone o-f the Kansas University which
has conferred its share of blessings on the
people-though it may not have received in
return as much recognition as so-me of the
less worthy courses of the University of
which it is a part.
As the University grew and prospered
there sprang up with' the advancement of
the time a desire forprofessional courses
in its curriculum. The earliest of these, the
Law Department, was organized in October
of the year 1878. Practicing law down in
the city of Lawrence was an able attorney, J.
YV. Green, and to him Chancellor Marvin
applied. Prof. Marvin's idea was to make
the Law Course an optional to be carried in
addition to some of the collegiate branches.
Mr. Green took up the work, and while doubt-
ing the practicability of the Chancellor's
scheme of making Law a minor to collegiate
work, was willing to give it a trial. From
that moment the life of this great-hearted
man has been given to the building up of this
school in the University.
As Mr. Green suspected, Chancellor Mar-
vin's plan was not a success. Thirteen young
men from the Art School enrolled in the
Law Department, and they met 'fUncle Jim-
mie" for the first time in a small room to thc
left of the main enltrance-now the Secre-
tary's oiiice. The class of thirteen soon dwin-
dled to four, these, .one by one as the work
grew harder, .dropped awayuntil but one re-
mained. His name was Howard Smith. He
studied himself stupid and Hnally gave up.
He afterward graduated.
u V The next year better arrangements were
made, and we ind a 'class fairly started under
Prof. Green with Mr. J. Patterson 'as his
assistant Still, the work was but a mere
beginning. The Dean and his co-worker,re-
ceived as compensation for their time and
eiforts a small fee paid by each student. This
fee was 35153 and as the class only consisted
of but seven or eight members, of course the
Instructors could not be expected to wholly
dispense with their practice in the courts.
This first class of eight members graduated
in 1880, and among their number we find
the name of Lucius H. Perkins, an able
attorney of Lawrence. J
This year, 1880, Mr. Patterson discontin-
ued his connection with the now small but
fully established Law School, and his place
was filled by Marcus Summerfield. From
'time to time the place of recitation was
shifted about to suit the Convenience of the
janitor and a growing University. This con-
tinual change of loco did not seem to agree
with the classes, and for several years no out-
going one equaled the first in numbers. Fin-
ally, after settling down into a room some-
where near their present quarters, the Law
School began to thrive. The Dean kindly
brought up his library from his down-town
office, and the Regents, as if for the first time
recognizing the fact that an ever-persistent
man was in their University turning out
lawyers, made a donation of 35500 for books,
and so forth.
But a political squabble on the floor of
the Senate Chamber of the State Legislature
was ordained to shape more clearly the des-
tinies of "Uncle Jimmie's" protege. Late 'in
the eighties R. XV. Blue, afterward Congress
man-at-Large, and Senator George Barker, of
Douglas County, were at swords' points over
the passage of some bill. Senator Barker had
introduced a bill which had embodied in it
an appropriation for the Law Department of
the State University. "Dick" Blue opposed
this, and added with his opposition the caus-
tic inference that the Instructor of said De-
partment could in all probability be found at
that present moment down in some justicets
court in Lawrence arguing a case. This
statement nettled Judge Barker, and he re-
plied to the effect that as said Instructor re-
ceived very little if any compensation for
his services to the University, it was neces-
sary that he follow his profession at least a
part of thertime. The result of this passage
at arms was a fixed salary for Dean Green,
with a provision. finserted by the vindictive
Senator from 'Linn Countyi, that barred the
Dean of the Law School from practice. The
Law Department was at last brought to
notice, but the State lost a future Supreme
Judge in J. NV. Green, for he has since that
time devoted his time and talents almost en-
tirely to the upbuilding of this school.
Soon after this the fees were abolished,
and, with exception of a library fee at one
time, the Law School has been and is abso-
lutely free to every student from the State
of Kansas. As to the library fee-thereby
hangs a tale. About six or seven years ago,
the Regents, judging success through inan-
cial specs, as Regents are prone to do, allowed
a library fee of five dollars to be charged for
the purpose of purchasing books for the li-
brary. fThe supreme gall of this wise body's
action may be easily imagined, when it is
known that the larger part of said library
was the private property of Dean Green.l
Now, in the Class of 1894 there was one Eli
Cann, and said Eli proved that he was 0116
that did not belie his name. He conceived
the idea of using some of the Law School's
own law upon itself. The consequences
were that the courts sustained him in his
action, and the library fee was forever abol-
ished from the whole institution.
As the University grew the Department
dealing out LL.B.'s also made ranid strides.
The Regents grew a little less reluctant to aid
it. The classis grewin number eachy.ar until
the present Senior Class will graduate more
than eighty members. As the enrollment in-
creased, so also was the number of Instruct-
ors and Lecturers added to. For 'several
years previous to January 1, 1899, Wlm. B.
Brownell, himself a graduate of the Class of
18-86, was assistant to the Dean. At his resig-
nation last year Prof. WV. L. Burdick, of the
Yale Law School., was called to this position.
Again in the fall of 1899, another Instructor
was added to the list of the Law Faculty.
This time it was XV. E. Higgins, a practicing
attorney, who had graduated in the Class of
1894. From time to time and with a few
changes the corps of 'Lecturers has been
augmented until we find the following: Jas.
Willis Gleed, Judge A. YV. Benson, Judge S.
A. Riggs, Judge Charles L. Dobson, Judge
David, Martin, and Marcus Summerfield.
From this list of names must not be omitted
that of Charles Vickrey, Professor of Elocu-
tion and Oratory.
For several years previous to 1894 old
North College wasuthe home of the Laws, but
new buildings having been built which al-
lowed more room in Fraser Hall, we were
again in 1894 established in the north wing
of the main building. Here, with two class'
rooms, library and reading-room, Instructors,
office, and cloak corridor, we threaten to
grow until some alumnus, grown wealthy,
dies and leaves us a bequest to shame the
State, whose generosity has done the least
always, for the most important of the cour-
ses at Kansas University.
Thus the Law School has grown until to-
day it is no 'longer an annex, but an integral
part of the University itself. The efforts of
its friends and supporters have been to place
the work in this Department on a basis no
less high than that occupied by Chemistry.
Mathematics, the Languages, or Engineer-
ing. To find a cause of any deficiency is to go
a very long way toward curing it. Our de-
ficiencies, if any, are in sight, our friends are
men who will remedy them as fast as the
slow progress of a great school with limited
means will allow. Here the budding attor-
ney meets men who have made the teach-
ings of principles of Law their life-work.
That university atmosphere, and those Uni-
versity ideals, so dear to the college man,
here surround the student of 'Law as well as
the student of the Cla.ssics or fthe Sciences.
He receives not only a lawyerts training, but
has a scholar's horizon. The basis of Law is
in the nature of man, not in the statute books,
and here what is best in that nature is devel-
oped by contact with other natures, other
If the Kansas University followers o-f Black-
stone have succeeded in making themselves
felt in the world without, their triumph in
this little world within has been none the less
great. Time there was when the student of
the Law Department to be recognized by
the student body of the University must have
carried some work in the Art School. The
Law to -the Art was a hayseed, an intruder
from the boundless shores of ignorance. For
years no brawny son of the Law School,
whatever may have been his physical or men-
tal ability, had a place or dared to contest
for honors upon the gridiron, the diamond,
or the rostrum. Theirs was an unwritten
history devoid of athletic or literary recog-
nition. Only now and then did some spe-
cial shining light gain any social prominence.
XVhile quartered in North College some of
the more shy ones had never' entered Fraser
Hall but twice: once to register, and again to
graduate. A few, more bashful than the rest,
while in these to them strange halls, backed
down at the last moment without the cour-
age to go after their LL.B. tHowever, f'Un-
cle Jimmie" always saw to it that such ones'
degrees were forwarded to thema
f'Yours is only a two-years course," was
the ever fatal sentence which pronounced
the doom of all aspirations to enter the arena
and break a lance with champions from other
departments. "But the worm will turn," and
once started, she is likely to keep flopping at
a rate productive of a few dizzy heads.
About the first hint that the other schools
had that there was a Law Schoolfin Kansas
happened thus: Judge Graves, sometime in
the spring of '92 or '93, gave the Laws a. lect-
ure on some branch of their work. No room
in North College being large enough to ac-
commodate the Judge's audience, they re-
paired to the lecture-room in Snow Hall.
Now the Laws, even at that early day, were
civilized enough to wear some sort of head
coverings. They left these, their hats, in the
ante-rooms of the lecture hall. A few Art
students having seen the Laws enter the
building in a body, came over from Fraser
Hall to investigate. These scouts spying the
head-coverings of a heretofore unknown race,
conceived a highly amusing practical joke.
Collecting together about forty or fifty Art
studensts, they made a silent descent upon
Snow Hall, and spirited away every hat to
the tower of the main building. Then, mass-
ing their forces upon the stairs, they sent
word to the Laws that the hats tby this time
l11lSSQd.D were in the tower, and if the Laws
wished said hats, to come and get them. The
Laws did go and they got their hats, but the
fight which preceded their recovery is one
of the hardest unrecorded battles among
the students of the institution. .Up the stairs
went the Laws. At the first landing was
grouped a crowd of Arts. There was a rush.
Clothes were torn and heads bumped. The
Arts who escaped ascended to reenforce those
on the landing above, while others less for-
tunate were passed, not too gently, down the
stairs by a dozen pairs of eager hands and
kicked out onto the campus by as many pairs
of eager feet, and the Laws of that day did
not wear Viet kid shoes either. Landing after
landing was captured until the little band
of men from North College reached the nar-
row stairs leading to the tower. Cn these
sta.irs were the football boys, the invinci-
bles of that year. Passing these tough-
ened athletes from hand to hand might have
been slow work, so the attacking forces facili-
tated matters by dropping them bodily from
landing to landing, and added an extra kick
at the door by way of distinction for their
victims' position on the 'Varsity team. The
hats were recovered, and with them respect
from the lads who had reckoned without
Another memorable battle was the result
of a practical joke perpetrated by some
down-town wag. It had long been the cus-
tom for the Laws on each 17th of March, St.
Patrick's day, to wear their colors, green and
brown. Early in the morning on one of these
dates some joker, aware of all the facts, tele-
phoned to North College 'to the effect that
if the Laws would come over to the campus
in a body the Arts would remove their colors
by force if possible. Another telephone mess--
age from the same source, but pretending to
come from the Laws, gave notice to the Arts
that the Laws intended invading etfheir domin-
ion, the campus, and defied the Arts to at-
tempt to remove their brown and green. The
result was a drawn battle, after several hours
of hard fighting.
These little instances and the return of
the Laws to quarters in the Main Building
soon opened the eyes of the other depart-
ments to the kind of material of which the
Laws were made. The Law Students began
to try for athletic, literary, and social dis-
tinctions, till to-day they are equal to any
in the athletic, social, and forensic life of the
University. True, we are not on equal foot-
ing with the four-year men in the matter of
the annual oratorical contest, the conse-
quence of an arbitrary rule- of the State Ora-
torical Association, a rule the injustice of
which our friends in the Art School acknowl-
edge, but one easily overcome by the Law
student applying himself to some work in
the Collegiate Department. I,
In athletics we proportionally surpass the
remainder of the Universitly, supplying to
football such men as Hamil, Wfoodward.
Hess, Smith, and a dozen others. The cap-
tain of the team for 'next year, Wilcox, is at
present in the Law Department. In baseball
the list of names, in numbers as well as in
strength, will equal that of the fall sport.
The interstate debates are one unbroken
record of victories for this department.
Our class-rolls are filled with the names
of the graduates of the Art School, of nor-
mal colleges and high schools, men who have
been County.Superintendents, men who have
spent years in educational work, men who
have already been admitted to the bar.
Our standard of admission has been raised,
and the despised "two years" lengthened to
In last year's annual, into which the Law
students were inveigled by a few oily-
tongued college politicians from the other
end of the hall, was a coat of armspurported
to be those of the Law School. It repre-
sented a shield upon which, alongiwith 'fUn-
cle Jimmie's" physiognomy, was portrayed
a sack of Duke's mixture, a pipe, a Battle Ax
tag, and several other emblems suggestive
of festive occasions in rented up-stairs rooms.
It was a creditable piece of art, but its fal-
lacies were in picturing the extreme. The
true coat-of-arms of the Law student, the one
he brings to the University with him, bears
the motto "Fight," It is the shield he bore
while battling to gain means to enter
school, the shield he bears here, be it in the
class-room or in a tussle around a May-day
flag-pole,and he will bear if with him out into
the world without the class-room walls.
Individually, and with few exceptions, the
Law student, like his brother in practice, is
a good fellow to know. His close association
with classmates wears away the sharp C01-.
ners of his nature and polishes off his lit-
tle conceits and prejudices. The very study
with which he is occupying himself is pro-
ductive of a broader nature.

As one brings this survey to a close, one
is tempted to offer a few suggestions. Uni-
versities are not ends in themselves. They
must help the people of the State collective-
ly. The most direct way that this is done is
through the teacher, the mechanic, and the
professional men, here made. The teacher
does his share, and it is a noble one, but he
seldom accomplishes anything outside of his
narrow line, and when one has once gone
into teaching it is easy to stay. The luxury
of a salary is not quickly abandoned for the
uncertainty of "hustling." The ,best invest-
ment then for the State is the professional
schools. And they must not be inproficient
ones, for from the weakness of the profes-
sional schools the common man is the chief
sufferer. The highly educated man can judge
of the best, and the wealthy man can buy the
best, but the common man is left to choose
where he may. Cheap education is dear at
any price, if it be poor education. The Fates
charge compo-und interest on every blunder,
and they have their own way at last.
Now to apply these thoughts to our Law
School. It is daily bringing a larger offering
to the lawyer's office, and through that to
the State. The man of law brings his quick
crop iirst to market. He is becoming the
court of appeals on all public questions. We
have here a University of splendid construc-
tion- and proportions, with a Law Depart-
ment almost' deserving mention in prece-
dence. There are great schools in the East:
philanthropic men have endowed them Gian-
sas University, too, has received a small
sharej. But is it not a shame that a mill-
ionaire should outdo a commonwealth?
W'hat University is not always in need of
more money than it can get? It must draw its
revenues from the governmental chest. The
whole University belongs to the people, so
no part of that University has a proper right
to make an appeal for funds to the people,
unless it exhibits to the people some return
either to itself or the people, for the funds
T'he Law graduates of Kansas University
have never once denied their time, influence,
or money, when their Alma Mater demanded
them. They have ever been her most numer-
ous and ardent supporters. And to the peo-
ple of Kansas her Law School has and will
ever keep its obligations.

FRANCIS HUNTINGTON SNOW,
Chancellor of the Kansas State University, is a
native of Fitchburg, Mass., born June 29, 1840. I-Ie
comes of the class of men who settled along the
Kaw River in the lifties, and made-the name of
Lawrence a synonym for liberty. Prof. Sno'v's first
connection with Kansas State University was in the
capacity of Professor of Mathematics and Natural
Science in 1866. Uniting his life work with this in-
stitution, he has striven ever for its best interests,
and in 1890 was elected to his present honored posi-
tion, a just reward for his ever-unending labors for
Kansas State University. Chancellor Snow's most
conspicuous work has been in his chosen Held of
labor, Natural Science, one of the results of which
has been the building up of the large natural his-
tory collection belonging to the University. While
Mr. Snow's position does not bring him in as close
association with the Law students as do those of
our Lecturers and Instructors, yet deep down in the
heart of every Law student there is a reverence for
the quiet, unassuming, business-like man and Kan-
sas is proud to have him at the head of this great
body of schools, her State University.

After graduating here, he entered Williams College

the degree of A.M. from that institution. HowiMr.
Green took charge, in 1878, of the then struggling
Law School, and built it up to its present high
standing, is told in our history of the Law School,
and need not be repeated here. While not a rigid
disciplinarian, the Dean has a. control over his large
class of young men which is proverbial, and the
friendship and esteem which these classes hold for
him can not be over-estimated.

WILLIAM E. HIGGINS.
Born in Indiana, educated in Ohio, received his
professional training in Kansas, and a practicing at-
torney in Missouri, such is the ground plan of the
life of William E. Higgins, A.B., LL.B., Associate In-
structor of Law in the University of Kansas. Prof.
Higgins received his early training in the rudi-
ments of education in the common schools of Cleve-
land, Ohio. Yearning for the health-giving zephyrs
and sun-kissed hills of Kansas, he "pulled out" for
the West, to grow up with the country. After two
years in the Lawrence High School, he entered the
Preparatory Class of the University in 1882, then
one of the prominent departments of the Uni-
versity. After an absence in 1883, he again en-
tered the University in '84, this time in the
Freshman Class, graduating from the fthenl Col-
legiate Department with the Class of 1888, be-
ing chosen by the Faculty as one of the five Com-
mencement speakers. I1Vhile in the University he
Won many honors, among which were the winning
of the Crew Prize Essay in 1883, the Botis and Field
Oratorical prize 1885, editor Unizrcrsit-y Rc-Ificw '87,
Phi Beta Kappa '88. Mr. Higgins, after completing
his University work, took up the teaching profes-
sion, holding down a position in Lawrence the fol-
lowing year, and was Principal of the Grant School,
Topeka, from 1889 to 1892. In the fall of '92 he en-
tered the Law Department, graduating therefrom
two years later, and was chosen the class orator.
In 1892 he was offered a position in the State Agri-
cultural School of Oregon, which offer was refused,
and again, after the completion of his Law work,the
offer was renewed. Upon his obtaining his Law de-
gree, he located in Kansas City, Mo., hung out his
shingle, and began the career of a practicing attor-
ney, building up a good and increasing practice.-
From this he was called at the beginning of the
present school year to bec-ome a member of the
Faculty of the School of Law. In this position he
has put himself in personal contact with the stu-
dents, aiding and assisting them in all ways possi-
ble. To his training is due largely the victory in
debate over Missouri this year.
JUDGE CHARLES LEE DOBSON,
One of our Lecturers, is a noted man. 'His res-
idence is Kansas City, and he is one 'of the most
prominent figures of the bar of that city. Born in
Virginia, he later came to Missouri, and was edu-
cated in the common schools and University of our
sister State. Judge Dobson was admitted to the
bar in 1870, and has been in active practice ever
since, with the exception of the time spent on the
bench. He was appointed Circuit Judge of the
Sixteenth Judical Circuit in 1894, and was elected
tothat oflice the following fall. In 1897 he refused
re-nomination, and resumed practice 'with his for-
mer partner, Henry L. McCune. Judge Dobson is
an authority on the Law of Corporations, and is a
Lecturer on this specialty in the University Law
School. ' .
JUDGE DAVID MARTIN. J. W. GLEED
DR. WM. L. BURDICK.
Dr. Wm. L. Burdick, Associate Professor in the
Kansas University Law School, was born in East
Greenwich, R. I. After completing the work in the
common schools, he entered East Greenwich Acad-
emy, an old classical school, situated on Narragan-
sett Bay. He was the valedictorian of his class,
and four years later he graduated from Wesleyan
University, taking both general and special honors.
He was one of the Commencement orators. He was
president of- his class, a member of the Psi Upsilon
and Phi Beta Kappa fraternities, and played upon
the baseball and football teams. Immediately after
graduating from Wesleyan he became Instructor in
Physics and Chemistry in EastGreenwich Academy.
He studied Medicine for two years, and was exten-
sively engaged in popular lecture courses in the
cities and towns of New England. Deciding, finally,
to enter the Law, he began its study in the oilice of
Judge D. W. Northrop, Secretary of State of Co-n-
necticut, and in 1886 he was admitted to the Con-
necticut bar, the report of the examination commit-
tee particularly commending him for his high stand-
ing. In 1888-89 he spent a year at Harvard, taking
graduate work in special lines. In 1891 he was
called to Fargo College, Fargo, N. D., to take charge
-of the educational work of that Congregational Col-
lege. The following year he was called both to
Carleton College and to the University of Colorado.
Accepting the latter position, he was for three years
the head of the Preparatory Department of the Uni-
versity, and Latin Instructor in the Graduate School,
In 1895 he was offered the Latin chair in the Ho-tch-
kiss School, of Connecticut, at a salary of 53,000
This school is one of the notable high-grade fitting
schools for Yale and Harvard. After two years in
this school, Dr. Burdick resigned, intending to de-
vote-himself henceforth to the Law. Expecting to
practice in Connecticut, he entered the third year
of the Yale Law School, graduated the following
year, receiving the "Governor Jewell Prize" for
highest standing in his class. Immediately he
opened an oiiice in the city of Hartford, and that
same fall was called to teach Law in the University
of Kansas. He has traveled extensively, having
been abroad three different times, and visiting all
parts of Europe. He has embodied the results of
his travels in a series of illustrated lectures, which
he has extensively delivered in popular lecture

summer of 1883 was spent by him in Europe. In
1884 he graduated from the Columbia Law School.
In October, 1884, he and his brother Charles opened
a law oilice in Topeka. With them was associated
for a time a prominent Lawrence attorney, George
J. Barker. Willis' earliest success was, attained in
connection with the celebrated Walruff and Mugler
cases. No case in Kansas annals is more famous
or more important than State fvs. Mugler, 29 Kan-
sas'181. He wrote the brief which wo-n the case in
the United States Supreme Court, Mugler cs. Kan-
sas, 123 U S. 623, as he did the brief which later
won the famous Walruff case, involving again the
prohibitory issue. In 1893 the law firm of Gleed,
VVare 85 Gleed was organized. In 1894 Willis was
empl-oyed to represent the bondholders of a branch
line of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad in
litigation against the receivers. In 1886 he was em-
ployed as the general solicitor for Kansas, for the
St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad. In 1885 Mr.
Gleed was made Instructor in the Law of Real Prop-
erty in our Law School. He has spent from a mo-nth

MARCUS SUMMERFIELD A
Was born August 15, 1842, in Persia. His early
education was received in the schools of his native
land. At the age of fourteen he emigrated to the
United States. Here his education was continued
by private tutors. -In 1864 he graduated in Medi-
cine, and in 1869 was admitted to the bar, and since
that time has practiced Law. He has been con-
nected with the Kansas University Law Sch-ool since
the second year after its organization as Assistant

tinction, and has been identified with important
corporation litigation. During his absence from the
State, and entirely without solicitation, Justice Fos-
ter, of the Supreme Court, appointed him receiver
of the Watkins Land Mortgage Co. Dr. Summer-
field's work ini the Law School has always been
highly appreciated by his class, who realize its
merit and true worth, and it is to be hoped that, as
his' faithful labor has helped to build up the school,
he may long continue in his capacity of Instructor.

WILLIAM B. BROWNELL.
To the members of the Law Class of 1900, and to
several preceding classes, the subject of this sketch
is known as "Professor Billy." For several years
VVil1iam B. Brownell was a Lecturer and later an In-
structor in the Law Department of Kansas Univer-
sity. He was born in Hamilton, N. Y., in 1859, and
in 1883 graduated from Hamilton College, of his
home town. Immediately he came to Kansas Uni-
versity, as assistant in the Department of English.
While an Instructor in the institution, he took a
course in Law, graduating with the Class of 1886.
He at once entered upon the practice of his pro-
fession with W. C. Spangler, under the firm name of
Spangler Sc Brownell. For several years he was em-
ployed as a Lecturer upon certain subjects, and for
two and one-half years held the position of Associ-
ate Prof. in Law. In November, 1898, he was elected
County Attorney of Douglas County, without oppo-
sition, being nominated as a Republican, and the
Democrats and Populists making no nomination
against him. At the close of the school work, at
holiday time, he resigned, and the esteem in which
he was held was shown by the Classes of '99 and '00,
on his leave-taking, by the presentation of a hand-
some office-desk and chair, the donation of the
boys and girls of these two classes. "Prof.'Billy"
Brownell is makinga splendid record as County
Attorney, and his ability as a teacher will be at-
tested by any who were fortunate enough to be
members of his classes.

W. C. SPANGLER.
Another graduate of Kansas University, whom
we are pleased to mention in the capacity of Lecturer,
is Mr. Spangler, who took his degrees from this in-
stitution, A.B. '83, LL.B. '85. He was and has been
since that time closely allied with the University.
As Chancellor's secretary from 1880 to 1885, Vice-
Chancellor from 1889 until 1890, Regent of the Uni-
versity from 1889 until 1893, and this year taking
the position of Lecturer and Instructor in Real
Property. In this latter position he has given great
satisfaction to the class, and we feel safe in adding,
to every one. Mr. Spangler was born in Illinois in
the year 1859, and came to Kansas in 1870, entering
on his University career nine years later. He has
been engaged in the practice of his profession, since
graduation, in the city of Lawrence. His ability as
an attorney may be attested by the fact that since
1887, two years after beginning his practice, he was
elected to the ofiice of City Attorney of Lawrence, to
which oiiice he has been repeatedly re-elected to the
present time. I

YVILDER S. METCALF,
Colonel, was born at Milo, Maine, on September
10, 1855, and removcd with his parents to Elyria,
O., in 1857, where he graduated from the public
schools in 1872, and from Oberlin College, Oberlin,
Ohio, in 1878. After nine years in the wholesale
butter and cheese business in Wellington, Ohio, Col.
Metcalf removed to Lawrence, Kansas, where he
engaged in the farm mortgage business as junior
partner of the well-known firm of Russell Sc Met-
calf.i During his residence here, Col. Metcalf grad-
uated from the Law Department of the Kansas
State University. While a resident of Ohio, Col.
Metcalf served an enlistment in the Ohio National
Guard, rising from private to first lieutenant of-
his company. In 1888, Col. Metcalf enlisted as pri-
vate in Company H, Kansas National Guard, at
Lawrence, Kansas, and rose rapidly through all the
grades to the captaincy of the company, which
command he retained a number of years, and the
records of the Adjutant-General's lofhce at Topeka
show that for years his company was the best in
the State. Later, he became major of- the regiment,
then lieutenant-colonel, and at the outbreak of the
Spanish-American War was colonel 'of the regi-
ment. Governor Leedy in no way recognized the
National Guard in the organization of the volunteer
regiments inlKansas, but finally offered Col. Met-
calf a major's commission in the 20th Kansas, which
was promptly accepted. ln his ofliclal report Majo.-
General McArthur referred to Maj. Metcalf as fthe
strong right arm of Col. Funston in all of his opera-
tions." Maj. Metcalf was Wounded at Bocane, and
when he returned to the regiment, he carried a
commissionyas colonel, caused by the promotion of
Colonel Funston to brigadier-general. Col. Metcalf
has been a close student of military affairs for
years, and possesses a fine military library, with the
contents of which he is practically familiar. Col.
Metcalf has a wider acquaintance among Regular
Army officers than any other American citizen, and
among them he enjoys an enviable reputation be-
cause of his knowledge of military art and the
science of war.
CLAUDE V. HICKMAN,
Attorney-at-law, was born on a farm near Robin-
son, Kansas, May 21, 1873, and remained on his
father's farm until he started to procure an educa-
tion in the higher branches in 1888. He is a son of
Henry H. Hickman and Jane Hickman fformerly
Jane Saxtonj, who moved to Brown County, Kan-
sas, in 1865, at the close of the Civil VVarg his father
having spent three years in the war in Company H,
Thirteenth Kansas. At the age of fifteen, Mr. Hick-
man started to school at Highland University, and
attended there fouryearsg from Highland Univer-
sity he went to Kansas University in 1893, and grad-
uated from the Law Department of that institution
in June, 1895, at the age of twenty-two. While at-
tending Kansas University, he met Miss Myrtle
Lodge, who was also a student there, and was mar-
ried to her December 26, 1895, from which union a
daughter, Helen Margaret, was born, and is now
three years old. Mr. Hickman started to practice
law in St. Joseph, Mo., soon after graduating, and
has offices in rooms 310 and 311 in the German-
American Bank building. Mr. Hickman comes of
Republican parentage, and he himself has adhered
to that faith, and has taken an active part in poli-
tics. Without asking for or seeking oliice, he was
nominated for Prosecuting Attorney of Buchanan
County, Missouri, in 1896, but was not able to over-
come the Democratic majority, and was therefore
defeated. In 1898-his party honored him again by
nominating him for City Attorney for St. Joseph,
but factional party difliculties caused, his defeat, and
also the defeat of the entire ticket.

located in Durango. Was County Attorney there
in 1895, and removed to Colorado Springs in 1896.
Practice confined almost entirely to civil matters in
the State and Federal Courts, and bankruptcy mat-
ters. Possibly the most important litigation that
he has had is that relative tothe title to Manitou
Grand Caverns and Cave of the Winds, which has
been pending since 1886, and been twice to the
Supreme Court. There are now pending, as an out-
growth of'the original suit, three cases in the Court
of Appeals, and four in the District Court. When
County Attorney of La Plata County, the "Fee Bill"
was taken to the Supreme'Court, argued twice oral-
ly, and an interpretation thereof obtained, as well
as other important county matters. He has also
had some important mining litigation, in connection
with Cripple Creek properties. More particularly

from the Law School in 1897, and returned in the
fall of 1878 to take up a special course in Political
Economy, and the allied subjects of History and
Sociology. For his future success, he realizes that
he has two of the primary requisites-time and op-
portunity. He has just emerged from that period
of existence in which "boys', are said to feel so
heavily the burdens of life, and is now a professed
optimist, having unbounded faith in uncorrupted
human nature, and looking to the future with dar-

life, teacher, editor, correspondent, lawyer, While
he was yet a boy his parents moved to Newton

his fatheris large implement store. Turning his at-
tention to Blackstone, he entered the Law Depart-
ment of the University in the fall of 1889, grad-
uating therefrom in 1891. As an appreciation of his
ability, he was selected as one of the six class day
orators. Starting out for himself, he went to Raw-
lins, WVyoming, and hung out his shingleg but not
finding that place what he desired, he went to Den-
ver and established himself in his present location,
in the Ernest KL Cranmer Block. Here, at the be-
ginning without reputation, friends, or money, he
has built himself up so that now he is one of the
most successful of the young lawyers in Denver,

where he graduated with distinguished honors, in
the ancient classical course, in 1877. Immediately
after graduation, he entered upon the study of the
Law, to which he brought a well-trained mind and
habits of concentration. He was admitted to the
bar in 1879, and in the following year graduated in
the first class of the Law School of the Kansas
State University. His subsequent life has been a
rebuke to those who claim that a man can not be a
successful literary lawyer. While winning an en-
viable name and independent competence in his pro-
fession, he has been able to devote much time to
study and general scholarship. His addresses are
models of vigorous Anglo-Saxon, with pure diction
and elegant simplicity. Of his addresses before the
State Bar Association, the one on the English Con-
stitution was pronounced one of the most scholarly
papers ever read before that body. He has been
President of the Kansas Academy of Language and
Literature, and has written, more than he has pub-
lished, in economics, philosophy, and prose fiction.
He was married in 1882 to Miss Clara Morris, a re-
fined and educated lady, who is a co-worker with
him in much of his literary work, and has been his
traveling companion in many thousand miles of
travel. The present Senior Class remembers him as
giving several able lectures before it, and knows
him to always have at heart the interests of his
Alma Mater. .
The Kansas University Law School numbers
among its graduates the popular and successful
journalist, Mr. Tom Charles. He was born in Re-
public County, Kansas, in a log cabin, on his
father's homestead. He has attended the Agricul-
tural College and the State Normal School, each
one year, and has spent one year in the Arts De-
partment of Kansas State University, and two years
in the Law School, graduating in '98. Through the
kindness of Chancellor Snow, he obtained work
which enabled him to complete his course in the
Law School. Mr. Charles is at present editor of the

Of the Class of ,95, was born at a village then known
as Osage Mission, but the people of Neosho County,
realizing that when his fame had spread abroad in

birth-place, named the place St. Paul. "Lamb" is
a misnomer, as the possessor of the name is a fighter
of note, as a number of older lawyers in southern
Kansas can testify-uniting with his fighting qual-
ities an utter inability to see when he is whipped.
In his live years of actual practice, he has succeeded
in becoming identified with some very prominent

TIMOTHY J. BUTLER,
Class of '99, has crowded into his short span of
life what would fill a large volume. Born in Cloud
County, this State, January 27, 1874, he enjoyed all
the joys and sorrows of other boys of his age, until
he Successfully completed the gradations in the
steps of a common-school education. He then sjent
some time at the Agricultural College, also at the
State Normal. The three years following he spent
wandering about in the cramped confines of Wis-
consin, Michigan, and Illinois, where he varied his
Vocation to suit the occasion-teaching school, keep-
ing books, and being a clerk in a postoflice. His
headquarters during this interim of -three years
were at Madison, Wis., where during vacations he
would attend the State University and the North-
western Business College. Try as he might, he
could not throw off or outgrow the longing for his
native State, and, unable to resist the temptation
longer, Butler returned to Kansas in 1897, and en-
tered the Law Department of the State University,
graduating therefrom a year ago. He is again in
school this year, taking post-graduate work along
special lines. It is his intention next year to go to
the Columbian Law School at Washington, D. C.

peka. He is one of the alumni whose career Kan-
sas State University has watched with pride. He
graduated from the Art Department in 1891 with
the degree of B.S., and returned a few years later
to again carry off a degree in 1895, this time that of
LL.B. Soon after returning to Topeka, he was ap-
pointed Assistant County Attorney of Shawnee
County, taking the place in 1897. This spring his
party-Republican-honored him with the nomina-
tion to the place of County Attorney, he having re-
ceived the largest vote ever cast for that office in
the Republican primaries in that county. All Mr.

The Kansas University Law School names as its
graduates many men whose fame is not limited by
the boundaries of their own State. Among these
may be mentioned C. K. Holliday, one of the most
noted lawyers and politicians ofKansas. Mr, Holli-
day was born in Meadville, Penn., February 12,1859.
He studied in the preparatory schools of Germany
and France.. In 1882 he received the degree of A.B.
from Washburn, and the degree of A.M. one year
later. He graduated from the Yale Law School
with the degree of LL.B. in 1885, and received the
same degree from Kansas University Law School
in 1895. President Cleveland app-ointed him in 1888
to be Cllayrgc d'Affaircs to Venezuela. By appoint-
ment of President Harrison, he acted as Commis-
sioner of World's Columbian Exposition. His pop-
ularity is shown by the fact that as candidate for
Chief Justice he carried Shawnee County, one of
the strongest Republican counties in the State. Mr.
Holliday has been a busy man of affairs during' his
professional and political career, being now presi-
dent of the Excelsior Coke and Gas Co., of Topeka.
He has also given considerable time to journalism,
having been editor of one of the leading Democratic
dailies of the State for a number of years.

que, N. M., and in the following October began the
practice of Law at that place. His activity and en-
terprise won for him a good clientage from the first,
and the firm of Johnson Kc Finical, which was
formed a short time afterwards, has since enjoyed
the confidence of the business people of that city to
a marked degree, and their business has kept stead-
ily increasing in volume and importance. Mr. Fin-
ical has always been a staunch Republican, and as
a candidate for the Territorial Council in the last
campaign, he carried his county by a majority of
1274, over Neill B. Field, his Democratic opponent,
while Mr. Catron only carried it by 625 over Mr.
Ferguson, the Democratic candidate for Delegate to
Congress. This gives the promise that if he should
remain in active politics, there is no position in
New Mexico to which he may not confidently and
successfully aspire. During the past three years,
Mr. Finical has been City Attorney of Albuquerque,
the largest city in New Mexico, and has been re-
cently honored with the appointment and confirma-
tion of District Attorney for the counties of Berna-
lillo and Valencia. He has become widely and most
favorably known throughout the Territory, and has
made many friends who will only be too glad to do
anything they can for him in the future. He is
true to his friends, and never fails to remember his
enemies. He never forgets his party, and atthe
same time he does not allow allegiance to it to con-
flict with what he believes to be the best interests
of the people as a whole.-Saw-ta Fe New Mcaficcm.,

The subject of this sketch, who is now serving
his fourth year as- County Attorney of Cherokee
County, this State, is a Hoosier, but went to that
county when a small child. During his boyhood
days he worked on a farm, made brooms, and re-
paired stoves to support his widowed mother,
younger brothers, and sister. One of his earliest
desires was to become a lawyer, and it was under
the greatest difficulties that he secured his" educa-
tion, which enabled him to graduate from the Kan-
sas University Law School in 1893. With limited
means, he "batched" on Indiana Street, in Law-
rence, in order to complete the course and avoid
expense. He is a strong campaigner, and has al-
ways taken an active part in politics, and while at-
tending Kansas University took the first steps in
the organization of the "Fusion Club," which was
the iirst club of the kind ever organized in the
University. Soon after hanging out his "shingle"
at Fort Scott, he was nominated for County Attor-
ney of Bourbon County, but was defeated with the
balance of his ticket. After engaging in the suc-
cessful practice of his profession at said place, he
returned to the home of his early days, where he
was twice elected public prosecutor by overwhelm-
ing majorities. Chas. Stevens is a self-made man,
having, step by step, worked his way up from the
boy broom-maker and stove-repairer, in his humble
cabin, to one of the most successful and wealthy
young lawyers of Southern Kansas.

AUSTIN CURTIS CUNKLE.
One of the best known and most popular mem-
bers of the alumni is Austin Curtis Cunkle, now a

Mr. Cunkle was born in Ohio in 1867, his parents
removing to Greenwood County, Kansas, in 1870.
After attaining a common-school education, his
father, who, until his death, was one of the most
successful physicians in the State, beingya great be-
liever in education, early started his son into the
University. It was in the good 'old days of the
"Prep" Department, and after six years of German,
French, and Anglo-Saxon, young Cunkle graduated
in the Arts Department' with the Class of 1888.
After two years' struggle with the world, without
any real genuine preparation for life, he returned
to the University and entered the Law Department,
graduating with the Class of '91, Here he found
what he liked. Law pro-positions were more inter-
esting than the diflicult translation of foreign and
dead languages. Mr. Cunkle has proven himself
quite proficient in public speaking. and being a
Democrat in Arkansas, he is, figuratively speaking,
"strictly in it." 'tThe Shingle" expects to hear of

of Lawrence. In the fullest sense of the word, Mr.
Caldwell is a self-made man. He was born in In-

ily settled in Allen County, Kansas. After years
spent in farming, and after a common-school edu-
cation, the subject of this sketch entered the Uni-
versity in 1879, graduating from the Art Depart-
ment in '85, After severa.l years spent in railroad
and newspaper work, he was appointed deputy post-
master of Lawrence, which position he held for
live years. During this time, he took a course in
Law, graduating with the Class of '94, In the fall
of 1894, Mr. Caldwell was elected to the Legislature,
and served with distinction in the '95 session, and
is credited with being responsible for the election
of Senator Lucian Baker. In June, '98, he was ap-
pointed postmaster of Lawrence. Aside from beirg
a successful politician and lawyer, he has been con-
nected with several enterprises, notably the publi-
cation of Dr. Cordley's "History of Lawrence," the
"Album of Lawrence," and several other publica-
tions. His success in life is due to his own exer-
tions, as he not only put himself through the Uni-
versity, but he has forced the recognition of his
ability by the public.

Saline County, Missouri. He had practically no
public-school advantages, having only a few months
of such in all. He entered Lincoln Institute at Jef-

of negroesj, worked his way through, and finished
the c-ourse in 1885. In the same year, he entered
the Law School at Lawrence, and by the same
method finished that course in 1887. He immedi-
ately opened an oflice in Kansas City, Kanl, and
pegged along until April, 1889, when he was elected
one of the justices of the peace in the city, there
being three. In 1891 Mr. Bradley again took up the
practice of the Law, and kept at it until January,
1895, when he entered the County Attorney's oiiice
as second assistant, and in a few months became
the first and only one, which position he held until
January, 1899, when he entered upon his present
practice. tHe tried to make it warm for criminals
while prosecutingj There is one thing Mr. Brad-
ley is vain enough to speak about personally, and
well he may be. "We have organized," says he,
"and have been maintaining for more than -one
year, something that I think is worthy of mention,
and that is the Douglass Hospital and Training
School for nurses, of which I was one of the found-
ers, and am still the president of the board of di-
rectors. I speak of this, because it is the only
thing of the kind in the United States, organized,
managed, and maintained by negroes alone, and I
will add that it is run on the charitable plan, and
its doors are open to the world, regardless of race,
color, or condition." In politics, Mr. Bradley is a
liberal Republican, and has not an overplus of re-
ligion, being a sort of a Dr. Roberts-Bob Ingersoll-
Free-Thinking-Orthodox Christian. He is one of
the colored men Kansas University is proud to

ship with D. S. Alford, one of the oldest and most
successful attorneys in Lawrence, and the new firm
ranks as one of the best in the State. It can be de-

account of himself, and that Kansas University will
be proud of him.

Wfas born June 23, 1867, in the State of Iowa, and is
the eldest of Hve children. His father was an old
so-ldier, being of Company C, 70th Indiana Volun-
teers, of which regiment ex-President Benj. Harri-
son was colonel. In 1870 Mr. Sharpe came to Kan-
sas with his father, and located on a farm in Wil-
son County. He attended the county schools a few
months each year, and after getting a fair smat-
tering of education himself, taught school. After-
wards he attended and graduated from LanewUni-
versity at Lecompton, Kansas. He graduated with
the Kansas Law School Class of 1893, and began
his practice in Lawrence, where he is at the present
time justice of the peace for that city. Mr. Sharpe
was married on June 7, 1893, to Miss Linnie B.
Worthington, and they have one child, a girl. Jus-
tice Sharpe came into pleasant relationship with this
year's class, among which hexhas many personal
acquaintances, by several interesting lectures on
"Practice Before the Justices' Courtsf' In this
capacity the boys of 1900 will remember him as a
fluent and interesting talker. ' I

1879 he removed to Kansas. He graduated from the
Kansas University Law School with the Class of '88,

most energetic and industrious sons. '

CHAS. H. TUCKER.
The subject of this sketch is not a teacher,
alumnus, nor member of the Law School, but he is
the fellow who puts the finishing touches upon the
graduating members of the Law School. As Clerk
of the District Court, Mr. Tucker "admits us to the
bar," and he has the distinction of admitting more
men and women to the bar than any other-per-
haps more than all other clerks of the court in
Born in England in 1857, left an orphan at an
early age, without friends or wealth, Charles H.
Tucker has known the trials and hardships of life.
In 1870 he came to Lawrence, Kansas, to live with
an aunt, and by the dint of hard work has made his
way in life. After several years inthe produce
commission business, he was elected to the Kansas
Legislature in 1895 as a Republican, and in '96
elected Clerk of the District Court, and re-elected
two years later. Last January, he was made cashier
of the Watkins National Bank, and Captain Adna
Clarke, a Law alumnus, as the deputy, runs the

ALEXANDER C. MITCHELL
Was born October 11, 1860, at Cincinnati, O., and
came to Kansas in 1867. After graduating from
the county schools in 1880, he learned the machin-
ist's trade, at which he worked in Cincinnati' until
1885. Later, he was a machinist in the Santa Fe
shops. Entering Kansas State University, he took
the degree of LL.B. In giving up his trade for
the Law, Mr. Mitchell seems to have made a wise
choice, as he is to-day one of the leading attorneys
of this part of Kansas. He located in Lawrence,
wherehe has since been a member of the firm of
Bishop 85 Mitchell. He was County Attorney from
'93 to '97, and -for four years prior'Deputy County
Attorney, under Mr. Bishop.

X CATHERINE SWOPE HYATT.
The Kansas Law School, in keeping with the
progress of the age, has and is graduating, a few
ladies each year, and they are heartily welcomed by
the legal fraternity. One of the best students of
the Law, who ever graduated from the Kansas Law
School, is Mrs. Catherine Swope Hyatt. Both she
and her husband, W. S. Hyatt, were graduates of the
Class of '89, Mrs. Hyatt is a native of Delaware, O.,
and received a degree of A.B from the Ohio Wes-
leyan University. Prior to her entering the Law
School, she was an Instructor in the Labette County
High School, and since her graduation has held the
position of Professor of Mathematics in the Law-
rence High School. As her husband has recently
been nominated, and will undoubtedly be elected
County Attorney of Labette County, Kansas, he will
certainly have an able assistant in the practice of
Law. 1 , '

W. S. HYATT
VVas born in Labette County, Kansas. He is a
graduate of the Law School, Class of 1899, but has
spent the past year taking special w-ork in the Art
Department of his Alma Mater. Mr. Hyatt is a
successful orator and debater, being a member of
the debating teams, and representing Kansas in the
annual debates with Missouri and Colorado. He
was nominated by the Populists and Democrats of
Labette County, Kansas, for the oflice of County
Attorney. This is a 'strong Fusion county, and Mr.
Hyatt stands a strong chance of being elected. If
such should prove his good fortune, we predict he
will make a good official.

PHILIP E. PARROTT.
Born in the county of Surrey, England, and
moved to Kansas in 1885. Was educated at Baker
University and Kansas State University, entering
the Law School of Kansas State University in 1891.
He graduated in 1893, and located at once in Kan-
sas City, Mo., where he became associated with the
firm of Beardsley 85 Gregory, of that city, in 1894,
and became a member of the firm in 1898. Their
offices are in the Waterworks Building.
DALE D. GEAR
Entered the Law School of Kansas University in
1896, and graduated in the spring of 1898. He also
spent four years in the Art School. After grad-
uating from the Law School, he attended the New
York Law School in New York City. He is a mem-
ber of the Phi Delta Phi, Phi Gamma Delta, and T.
N. E. fraternities, also a member of the Temple
Lodge, No. 299, A. F. and A. M., of Kansas City,
Mo. During the year 1896 he captained the Uni-
versity baseball team. In the summers of '96 and
'97 he was with the Cleveland, O., National League.
The seasons of '97-'98 he pitched for the Kansas
City Blues, winning the pennant of the Western
League. Though a Kansan by birth, he is a Mis-
sourian by adoption, and is at present located at
Kansas City, Mo. I
HORACE G. POPE
Was born August 15, 1873, in Cawker City, Kansas.
He attended the Cawker City High School and Man-
hattan College, from which he graduated in 1894.
After spending one year in the Arts Department at
Kansas University, he enrolled in the School of
Law, from which he graduated in 1897. While in
school, he was editor-in-chief of the Law publica-
tion, the Kansas Lawyer, which, under his manage-
ment, become prominent as a Law journal. After
graduating, Mr. Pope began the practice of Law in
Kansas City, Mo., and in '99 formed a partnership
with L. F. Bird, formerly of Atchison, Kansas, un-
der the firm name of Bird Ka Pope. Mr. Pope is a
pro-mising young attorney, and is making a reputa-
tio-n for himself in his chosen profession.
Perhaps the most enthusiastic and energetic
friend of Kansas University, and especially of the
Law Schoo-1, is John Sullivan, of the Class of '87.
When he came to Lawrence, fresh from the farm,
he had, figuratively speaking, uhayseed in his hair,"
but he soon developed hustling and political quali-
fications, and became the leader in University circles.
Following his natural bent, he located in Kansas
City, and at once entered into politics, and has been
for years one of the Democratic leaders of that city.
Under President Cleveland, he held a very fat posi-
tion, but refusing to desert his idol, Bryan, in '96,
he was removed by the noted "duck-shooter," and
still remains one 'of the leaders of Missouri Democ-
racy. Mr. Sullivan has been a money-maker, and
enjoys 0-ne of the most lucrative practices of any of
the Kansas University alumni. You can always
find him smiling and happy at his ofiice, "first fioor,
from the roof,', in the New York Life Building.

The Class of tooo.
Cn the nones of September in the year of
our Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-eight,
some threcscore ladies and men, seeking the
fountain of justice, wended their way up Mt.
Oread and found said source of justice and
knowledge on the first floor, north, Fraser
Hall. Here they eagerly drank in the words
of law and equity that poured forth from
the lips of "Uncle Jimmie." And those words
irrigated the tired brains of this assemblage,
and started them again in greater activity.
This was the beginning of the Class of '00,
a' class composed of and taken from every
vocation and walk of life, from the congested
city, and from the sparsely populated Hshort
grass" country, from the money centers, and
from the corn-fields, from the school-room,
and from the 'cattle range, and which in a
few years will be shaping the destiny of State
and nation. D
This class of sixty gentlemen and three
ladies has grown in two years, not only in
the Law, but in size to near fourscore and
ten. Its growth has not been without its
loss, for of the number enrolled during the
first half-year of its existence nearly twenty
have severed their connection with the class.
The first four months of the Junior year were
uneventful. Prof. Brownell, having been
elected County Attorney of Douglas County,
resigned from the Faculty, and his chair was
filled by Dr. YV. L. Burdick, of the Yale Law
School. lVith his coming also came the case
book, and its toil and terror to the class.
It was about this time that the course
was raised from two years to three years, and
a higher degree of admission requirements
was established, all due to the earnest and
persistent efforts of the Dean, Prof. Green.
As a result the class this year has been
obliged to take much extra work heretofore
The class has been fortunate in selecting
its officers. The first year RobertJLanders
acted as President, with Miss Margaret Cas-
ey as Secretary, and made for themselves an
enviable record as able officials. At the be-
ginning of the Senior year a number entered
the race for President to succeed Mr. Lan-
ders, who declined to serve longer. After a
spirited and closely contested race and sev-
eral meetings, Mr. J. A. Anderson was elected
President and Miss Caseyreelected Secretary.
On the athletic field, in every department
of sport, football, basketball, baseball, and
track, the class has been 'well represented,
having in each case the guiding hand in the
contests and games. On the gridiron in the
'fnever-defeated, ever victoriousv eleven of
399, were XVilcoX, Hess, Parent, Cates, Smith
QT. DJ, and lVoodward, with P. S. Elliott,
manager, whileYVilcoX is the captain selected
to lead the team of 700 to victory.
In basketball Hess was a strong member
of last year's team, and for his good work
was made captain, but resigned later. Par-
ent, Carroll, and Moore represented the class
in the diamond, Parent being chosen captain
of the 'Varsity nine for this spring, and Cates
is captain of the track team.
Last year during the inter-class games,
this class carried off the pennant. After
badly defeating the Senior Laws and Phar-
mics, the team was matched against the
Senior Arts, for the final game, but, the Arts.
refusing to play, the game went to the Laws
XVhen the time came this year to make
arrangements for the Annual, the Arts asked
the Laws to join them, but, as the Law Class
was as large as the Senior Arts, they asked
a share in the management as well as on the
editorial staff. This the Arts refused, and
the Laws decided to go it alone, and they
have made a success of it, as is well at-
tested by this book, the Kansas University,

GRACE BUCHANAN BARNETT
Was born at Bolton, Mo., December 21, 1875. She
came to Kansas to mix in politics and assist the
down-trodden women of the Sunflower State. This
resolution came to her very young, so she was but a
child when she left Missouri. After attending the
Goodland High School, Miss Barnett was for six
years a school Hmarmf' Finding this the sure road
to old-maidism, she resolved to lead a better and
higher life, and to-day we find her one of the three
Graces Cladiesl in the Senior Law Class of 1900.
Besides being well versed in legal lore, Miss Bar-
nett has talent in a literary way, and the editor
here wishes to say that much is due this lady as-
sistant for the success of "The Shingle." Miss Bar-
nett will become the senior member of the law firm
of Barnett Ka Barnett, and will practice at Good-
land, Kansas. Who the junior member of the part-
nership will be she does not state, but we predict
for the firm success in future years.

CHARLES CRAVEN HOGE
Was born March 15, 1872, near Shawnee, this State,
and was raised and lived on a farm until the age
of seventeen years, when his parents removed to
Olathe. He passed successfully through the com-
mon schools and the Olathe High School. After
graduating, he spent one year in the Beggs Acad-
emy at Olathe. Following this he took a commer-
cial course in the Spalding Commercial College,
Kansas City, completing his course in 1892. He
soon found a position with the Johnson County Co-
operative Association, one of the largest mercantile
establishments in eastern Kansas, where he rose to
be the foreman in his department. Resigning his
position in 1896, he took a vacation and spent sev-
eral months in different parts of Old Mexico. Upon
returning fronrhis pleasure trip, he opened a gen-
eral merchandise store, and dealt in grain at Bucy-
rus, Miami County. At the beginning of the Leedy
administration in 1897, Mr. Hoge was appointed
bond clerk under D. H. Hefflebower, State Treasurer,
which position he filled with honor to himself, to
the administration, and to the State. After the
close of his 'official career in 1899, he became the
managing editor of the Olathe Tribune, the leading
Populist paper in Johnson County. Resigning this
after three months' trial, he entered the Law School,
and has been a faithful worker since. While here
he has become very prominent in University affairs.
His powers of speech, as displayed in stumping the
State for Leedy in 1898, made him recognized as an
orator, and he was chosen President of the Orator-
ical Society, and was chosen an alternate for the
Kansas-Missouri debate for this year. He was a
member of the Kansas University Glee Club, which
made a successful tour of the State the past winter,
and is now auditor and member of the Board of
Directors of "The Shingle."

ROBERT ELIJAH TROSPER
Was born May 5, 1856, in Nodaway County, Mis-
souri. In 1859 he came to Kansas, locating in Mar-
shall County, which place he has since made his
home. He received his early education in the pub-
lic schools and at the State Agricultural College
at Manhattan. He has engaged extensively in bus-
iness, meeting with exceptional success, and al-
though pursued at times by that malignant, envious
spirit with which it is the lot of successful men to
contend, each encounter has but created strength,
and he has grown fat and jolly over these small
troubles. Mr. Trosper has lived in a log cabin, has
hoed corn, has seen the buffalo, the coyote, the
grasshopper, and the Kansas cyclone, but he has
never lost sight of the noble ambition to become a
graduate of the,Kansas University Law School, and
has wisely chosen to graduate with the Class of
1900. He is recognized as an able speaker, and the
faith his classmates have in his integrity and busi-
ness ability was shown by his election as business
manager of the Law Year Book. It is a fact worthy
of mention, that at the same time that Mr. Trosper
graduates from the Law School, his son, Robert E.,
Jr., graduates from the Art Department of Kansas
State University. ' V

ROBERT E. EVERETT
Was born November 21, 1874, at Pleasanton, Kan-
sas. In '92 he graduated from the Pleasanton High
School, and coming to Lawrence that year, attended
and graduated from the Art Department of Kansas
University. From that time until '99 he followed
journalism as a. profession, meeting with gratifying
success.- Since entering the Law School, Mr. Ever-
ett has had ample opportunity to keep uphis jour-
nalistic work, as he has been connected with the
various University publications. He was unani-
mously chosen editor-in-chief of the Kansas Uni-
versity "Shinglef' He is a member of the Sigma Nu
fraternity. He has never taught school, and has
nobly reso-lved never to do so, no matter how sorely
tempted. Although Mr. Everett has not increased
in stature to a very great extent, he has increased
in wisdom, and in the future, if any of us shall
chance to meet a small man with a merry twinkle
in his off eye, pointed to by the admiring natives as
"Little, but oh my!" we will rub our glasses, take
a- second look, and remark: "Well, I guess yes!
That is Bob Everett, the wit, poet, and caricaturist
of the Law Class of 1900.7 Mr. Everett will com-
bine the professions of law and journalism.

JAMES VANDAL V
Was born in South Dakota in the year 1876, August
26th. The blood of the noble red man fiows in his
veins, and he evidences its presence by his artistic
temperament and his love for nature. He attended
the Mission School of his native State, and after-
wards, in 1894, Haskell Institute, at Lawrence. He
completed the normal course of the latter institu-
tion in 1898, and the same year entered Kansas
State University. He says that he will practice law
and starve, but this is one of Jim's jokes, and we
have no doubt that his teepee will always be filled
with the best that a "lawyer" deserves.

at Rossville, Ill. In November, '91, he decided to
come West, and grow up with the country. On
arriving at Florence, this State, he immediately en-
tered the Florence High School-graduating in 1894.
To obtain the wherewithal to go higher in the edu-
cational line, he turned to that ever-ready vocation,
teaching. After following the career of a pedagogue
for two years in the country school-houses, he en-
tered the University in 1896, and took a year's spe-
cial work in the Art Department. The following
year he was Principal of the Florence High School.
Again, in the fall of '98, he entered the University,
and in the spring entered the Law School. In the
summer of '99 he officiated as "pencil-pusher" upon
the Florence Bulletin., in the capacity of local edi-
tor. Before hanging out his shingle for himself, he

FERNAND BURTON. '
In the far-away land across the sea, Belgium,
ushering in the New Year, came Fernand Burton,
born January 2,1876. In the first eleven years of his
youth, he gained a fair education in his mother
tongue. In 1887, wishing to learn more of the
world, he secured transportation for his family, and
sent them to America, following himself 'on the
same vessel. His first location was at Florence,
Kansas, a thriving little railroad town, where he
sc-on had the rough edges knocked off of him. After
migrating to several other places, he at last settled
down at Ponca City, Oklahoma. He increased his
fund of knowledge in the Ponca City High School,
and by a short term in the University of Oklahoma.
He secured a teacher's certificate, but decided to en-
ter the Kansas Law School, which he did in '98.
He has become quite prominent in olratory, and has
taken part in several contests.

ERNEST C. LOCKWOOD.
Ernest C. Lockwood was "shown" the light of
day for the first time, some twenty-six years ago, in
Davies County, Missouri. Since that time he has
had to be "shown" in nearly everything in his brief
existence. Among the moss-backed hills of his na-
tive State, he received a common-school education
and attended a college a year or two. His first
ambition in his 'fteens" was to pull taffy with the
girls, and find the first "red ear" at the "husking
bees." Not content with always being a Missou-
rian, he went to Iowa, and later to Nebraska, work-
ing on farms, and looking for the goal of happiness.
To make this happiness more palatable, he taught
school once. In July, '98, he came to Kansas, and
entered the Law School that fall. The Juniors have
"shown" him, and he expects to be "shown" some
high place in State or nation in the dim future.
J. HOWARD TORRENCE.
Born on the banks of the Ohio in Middlepiort,
Ohio, and wishing to grow up with the country, he
moved with his parents to the short-grass country
of Kansas in 1884. Being of a studious turn of
mind, he so far completed a common-school educa-
tion as to spend a year in the Central Normal Col-
lege at Great Bend in '92 and '93. The next year he
graduated from the Ellinwood High School. To
secure the "wherewithal" to acquire professional
training, he taught school the next three years.
Emulating the example of his worthy ancestor,
Judge Torrence, of the Supreme Court of Connecti-
cut, he entered the Kansas University in the fall of
'97, going into the Law School the following year.
His aspirations are to be on the Supreme Bench of
his adopted State.
' ofrfro SUMP
First saw the light of day in a log cabin in Ran-
dolph, Riley County, Kansas, January 17, 1878. His
early education was received in the little log school-
house of his home neighborhood. At fourteen he
entered the High School, and advanced so rapidly
in a year's time that he, armed with a common-
school diploma, hied himself away to the State Nor-
mal at Emporia.. He attended the State Normal in
'94 and '95. Taught two years, and returned to the
State Normal for another year. Later he was em-
ployed as conductor on a street railway in Topeka
for several months. Tiring of this, and other work
he had been doing, he decided to study law, and en-
tered the Kansas University Law School. He is at
present editor of the Kansas University Lawyer, and
is an energetic young man. He aspires to the Chief

t'States are not great, except as men may make

Emory W. Earhart, who was born at Lykens, in
that State, May 26, 1872. In 1884 he decided to give
the citizens of Kansas the benefit of his wisdom
and "sagacity," so moved to Oxford, in the southern
part of the State. Mr. Earhart engaged in the no-
ble occupation of teaching for several years, but,
co-nsidering how much more he could do for suffer-
ing humanity in the legal profession, he gave up
teaching to enter the Law School in the spring of
'99. He has already had nine cases in court, and as
he is a calm and fluent speaker, as well as a logical
reasoner, he will undoubtedly have others. .
A product of a Kansas farm, Cornelius Gant, was
born near Topeka, October 27, 1877. Here for the
first seven years of his life he grew as did the corn
and the pumpkins, and developed into a sturdy
youth. In the fall of '84 his family moved to Leav-
enworth, where he received a goiod education in the
city schools, graduating from the High School there
in June, 1898. That summer he came to Lawrence,
where he has since made his ho-me, and expects to
hang out his shingle. In September, 1898, he be-
came a charter member of the Law Classof 1900,
and, notwithstanding matching cloth and samples,
and remembering that it is No. 40 white, instead of
No. 50 black, he has found time to study, and has
successfully passed all quizzes.
CHARLES DARWIN DAIL
Is the son o-f Attorney C. C. Dail, of Kansas City,
Kansas. His home is at Quindaro, a small village-
suburb of Kansas City, Kansas. He was .born Jan-
uary 30, 1878, in Douglas County, Kansas, six miles
from Lawrence. He graduated in the Latin course
from the Kansas City, Kansas, High School in the
spring of 1898. He entered the Law Department of
the State University, at Lawrence, in the fall 'of the
same year, graduating in the spring of 1900. He is
altogether a Kansas boy, and is not only' proud of
his State, but is trying to make his State proud of
him. He is thoroughly temperate in all his habits,
using neither intoxicating liquors nor tobacco in
any form. During the summer 'of 1897, he had a
severe attack of the gold fever, and, accompanied
by his father, made a trip to Alaska, returning in a
few months Crich in experiencej, and cured of the
fever. His prospects are bright for success in the
profession he has chosen, and if. determination.
pluck, and energy will aid, then Kansas may add
one more name to her list of bright young lawyers.

in legal lore, he took up the study of 'Blackstone in
the oflice of W. B. Glasse. To prepare himself
further for his chosen profession, he attended the
University from 1895 to 1898. In the latter year he,
accepted a position with the Republican State Cen-
tral Committee. His stay at the "county" Copeland
put him in touch with nearly all the prominent
men of the State. During his stay in this "county,"
and from its lasting effects, he has expanded with

DAVID W. WOOD.
David W. Wood, grandson of the late S. N. Wood,
whose name was a familiar word in the sod homes
in the early days of Kansas, was bo-rn near Strong
City,'Chase County, this State, March 9, 1878. He
grew to manhood among the hills and rocks upon
his father's ranch, always foremost in anything
which seemed to catch his eye. While but four
years of age, he ran away from home to attend
school. While at school he was very often caught
breaking rules. In 1896 he graduated from the Cot-
tonwood Falls High School, and immediately se-
cured a teacher's certificate. After a year of this
profession, he gave it up, and came to the Univers-
ity. Upon Mt. Oread, where, forty-three years be-
fore, his grandfather had camped, he commenced.
this last course of his school life. A year's work
in the Art School fitted him for the Law, which he
entered in 1898. Mr. Wood will not practice this
line as a profession, but will use it to assist him in
the business vocation which he may take up. In
the Way of athletic sports he has taken great inter-
est, and has developed himself into a good, healthy
physical man. He has participated in baseball,foot-
ball, and basketball, being manager of the victori-
ous Junior Law baseball team of '99.

We almost wished to break into song when called
upon to describe this illustrious young man, but, for
the sake of uniformity, will refrain. He first ap-
peared in Farlington, Crawford County, Kas,,August
17, 1874. His only playmates were grasshoppers,
sandstorms, and prairie fires. He attended common
schools until he found them too common, and then
hied away to the Fort Scott Normal. where, in four
short years. he lived, loved, lost, and graduated. It
is hinted that he taught school, but he denies it
from the depths of his poetic soulft He entered
the Law Department of the Kansas State University
in 1898. Mr. Landers expects to form a Law part-
nership with R. W. Field, one of his classmates.
They will probably begin practice somewhere in
southern Kansas. Geniality, industry, and beauty
-this combination-can not fail to heget honor.
wealth, and matrimony-success indeed. He is a
member of Phi Delta Phi.

FORREST C. COCHRAN
Makes aflidavit to the biographer that May 7, 1880,
he was just one day old, being born the day before.
The place of his birth, said Forrest C. Cochran
further swears, was Columbia, Iowa. N-ow, Iowa
being a good place in which to be born, but a poor
place to live, our hero came to Kansas, and, to be
plain, to Plainville, Kansas. Here he safely ran the
gauntlet ofcommo-n and high schools, but fell into
the toils of Washburn College at Topeka. Entered
Citizens' Bank at Plainville in 1897, and remained
in that institution in the capacity of assistant cash-
ier until September, 1898, when he entered the Law
Department of the State University. He is a mem-
ber of the Phi Gamma Delta and the Phi Delta Phi
fraternities. Future clients will do well to consult
him when in need of legal advice.

PAUL ADDISON DINSMOOR.
'FA handsome lad, I trow." Born in the intel-
lectual atmosphere of Lawrence, no wonder he
panted for knowledge. After graduating from the
public schools of that city in 1894, he entered the
Freshman Class of Dewey's old Alma Mater, Nor-
wich University, at Northfield, Vermont. He came
back to Sunny Kansas in 1898 with the degree of
Bachelor of Science, in chemistry. He entered the
Junior Class of the Law Department of -Kansas
University in the fall of 1898. Besides his school
work, he has studied, on the side, in the law oflice
of Judge Barker, of Lawrence. Mr. Dinsmore is a

Vilas born April 10, 1869, at Stanley, Kansas, and
was educated in the public schools of his native
city, the Paola Normal School, and the State Agri-

Kansas. In 1890 he was appointed railway postal
clerk on the main line of the Atchison, Topeka 85
Santa Fe Railroad. In 1898 he entered the Law
School of Kansas University. He is one of the men
who give exceptional promise of success. He is a
Kansan by birth and training, and will undoubtedly
become one of the number who prove that Kansas
produces men of true worth. He is a Phi Gamma

RUSSELL W. FIELD.
Russell W. Field was born, the 12th of July, 1877.
He emerged from chaos at Solomon, Kas., where he
dreamed the dreams of joyous adolescence. But one
day, Hnding ignorance no longer bliss, he entered
the School of Arts of Kansas State University, in
the fall of 1894. Here he spent three useful years,
working the professors, and studying on the side,
until one day he strayed into the class-room of the
Law Department, and heard one of "Uncle Jim-
mie,s" stories. "I will have more of this,', he de-
clared, "for it is true wisdom," and the next year
418983 he entered the Law Department. Here his
work has been of excellent grade, and he has evi-
denced the material of a good attorney. He will
form a partnership with Robert Landers. Both of
these gentlemen are members of the legal fraternity,
Phi Delta Phi, classmates, and chums, and we be-
speak for them successful careers.
GEORGE L. DAVIS
Was born in 1875 at Spring Hill, Kansas. His
early years were spent attending school, and in the
employ of the Spring Hill Banking Company. Af-
terward, he accepted a position in the American
National Bank, of Kansas City, Mo., which position
he resigned to enter the Kansas University Law
School. While in school he has been local-agent of
the Kansas City Star Company. The high esteem
in which his business ability is held by his class-
mates was shown by his being elected business
manager of the Kansas University "Shingle," but
'his other duties compelled him to resign. He is at
present associate editor of the Kansas University
Tlkielcly. He is a member of the Phi Delta Theta

tice of Law at once, but will spend four years in the

Since that time he has resided in Moray, Doniphan

dent, and, although from Missouri, he is not slow
at finding out a few things without waiting to be

marked with success.
MARGARET ELIZABETH CASEY
Was born at Beatrice, Neb., December 1, 1875. She
moved to Topeka, Kansas, While in her Utoddling
teens," but soon ceased to "toddle" and walked to
school. Attended School of Assumption at Topeka,
and Mount Saint Mary's Academy at Leavenworth
for one year. After graduating from the Topeka
Business College, she accepted a position as ste-
nographer with Call Sc Ingalls, who were succeeded
by Dobbs 84: Stoker. Miss Casey held this position
six years, at last resigning to enter Kansas Univer-
sity Law School. A glance at Miss Casey's picture
will explain her popularity with so many of the
embryo lawyers in the Class of 1900. She emphat-
ically states that she is, as yet, undecided as to the
future,-much to the regret of many of her friends
in the Law School.

AL. R. SPRINGER.
In Riley County, Kansas, "the Stork" left Alvin
Springer with his future parents, on the 5th day of
July, 1880. Thereby the subject of this sketch
missed one celebration, which, had he been one day
sooner, he would have enjoyed-therefore the al-
ways sad expression he wears fsee picturej. He
soon moved to Pottawatomie County, where on a
ranch he longed to grow up into a cowboy or Indian
fighter. But such a wild free life was not for him.
His way was to be along the "iiowery path of knowl-
edge." He attended Lane University at Lecompton,
Kansas, until a Sophomore, but one day he was
missed from the class-rooms of that historic school,
and when next heard from was studying Law at
Kansas State University, having entered this insti-
tution in February, 1899. Mr. Springer is verv self-
ish, and exnects to withhold from the world the
knowledge he has gained, so he will not practice
Law, unless his country demands that he sacrifice
DUFF G. PHILLIPS.
Duff G. Phillips was born August 11, 1871, in
Leavenworth County, this State. His youth to
manhood was spent on the farm, attending the dis-
trict school and the Tonganoxie Academy. After
finishing his academical work, he went forth armed
with a permit from the County Superintendent "to
teach the young idea how to shoot." Desiring a
higher education, he entered the School of Arts,
Kansas University, in 1894, graduating therefrom
in 1898. In the fall of '98 he accepted the principal-
ship of Southland College, Helena, Arkansas, which
he held until in May, 1899, when he entered the Law
School. Mr. Phillips has been a hard student and
a keen observer of the world's affairs, and will make
a successful attornev. On August 19, 1897, he shuf-
fled off the coil of single blessedness. and took unto
himself a wife, Miss Lucy Steele, of Jackson County,
Missouri. At the close of the school, he will form a
partnership with his brother Oliver. a graduate of
the Class of 1897, and will open an Oifice in Leaven-
SHERMAN G. ELLIOTT
ls a native "Jayhawke1'," and was born in 1872.
He discontinued his studies in the Art School in the
middle of his Senior year to take up the Law, He
was Kansas University's orator in the State contest
in '99. After graduation he will resume his studies
in the Art School, and will take his A.B. in '01,
after which he will join his brother in the Law firm
of Elliott Bros., in Kansas City, Mo.
CAMPBELL F. ROBERTS
Was born May 20, 1878, at Greenfield, Missouri.
He received his education in the public schools of
that city, and at Topeka, Kansas. In the fall of
'98 he entered the Art Department of Kansas State
University, but realizing that the talent and genius
of the great institution were centered in the Law
School, he withdrew to begin the study of Law in
January of '99. While Mr. Roberts is not the Rob-
erts of Utah notoriety, nor the celebrated Lord Roh-
erts of England, yet we shall not be surprised in the
hereafter if his fame exceeds that of either of these.
EDWARD THOMAS RILING
Was born November 15, 1875, at Leavenworth, Kan-
sas. He obtained a common-school education at
Leavenworth and Leadville, Colorado. Later, he
attended St. Benedict's Co-llege at Atchison. After
four years of college work, he returned to his coun-
try home at Worden, a few miles south of Lawrence.
Being the oldest son at home, the work of the farm
devolved upon him. In the year 1898, he entered
the Kansas University Law School. He is a Kan-
sas man through and through, and expects to make
his ho-me in Kansas, He is a Roberts man, al-
though he does not advocate Mormonism.
CHARLES WILLIS WILCOX.
Jolly, jovial "Wi1key," a product of the short-
grass country, was born September 5, 1878, in Cloud
County, Kansas. His boyhood days were spent on
the farm driving the ducks to water, and "swap-
pingn marbles while at school. He graduated from
the Concordia High School in 1898. The same year
he entered the University Law School. His fine,
massive physique and earlv athletic training won
him a place upon the football team of '98, and on the
"ever-victorious" team of '99. For his good work
the past year he has been chosen captain of the
eleven of 1900. He also prides himself on being
very fond of the ladies.
FRANK EUGENE CRABTREE.
Frank Eugene Crabtree, of Scott City, Kansas,
was born in Polk County, Iowa, and during boyhood
years lived on a farm. He received his education
in the schools of his native State, being a high-
school graduate. He began teaching at the early
age of seventeen years. After teaching several
years in Iowa, he came to Scott County in 1891,
where he has since engaged 'in educational work.
He was in 1896 elected to the position of Superin-
tendent of Schools of that county, and filled the
position with credit to himself and satisfaction to
the people. He has served one year as President of
the Western Kansas Educational Association. Read
Law for a time with Mr. Travis Morse. now of Iola,
Kansas, and entered Kansas 'State University Law
School in February of 1899. Mr. Crabtree has. as

In a little log cabin, out upon the treeless plains
of Kansas, in 1879, William H. Zwick was born.
Like a sunflower, when it Hrst begins to rear its
head to the gentle zephyrs from the south, he took
upon himself a bright smile, which he still keeps.
At the age of seven he began to learn his A, B, Cs,
and had so far progressed that eleven years later he
entered the University. When the Spanish War
broke out, he enlisted in Company H, Twentieth
Kansas Infantry, April 29, '98, and went with that
famous regiment to San Francisco, but, on account
of illness, he was unable to proceed to the Philip-
pines. Returning, he re-entered the Law School in
January, 1899. He hopes to be elected Justice of
the Peace. I
NATHANIEL CHARLES ELSE
Was born in Davis County, Iowa, March 24, 1879.
In 1885 he came to Kansas with his parents, and

He attended district schools and Washington
Friends' Academy until 1898, when he entered Kan-

uates with this class.
PHILIP S. ELLIOTT
was born . III 1898 he took the
degree of A.B. at Kansas University, andat the
opening of the next school year entered the Law
Department. We have searched the records in vain
for anything that would not reflect honor and glory
on Mr. Elliott's life, but even those mistakes which
it is the misfortune of great men to make are en-
tirely absent, and each page of his history shines
forth with a lustre all its own. In 1898 he was
chosen State Orator, a place which his talents en-
abled him to fill with marked credit. In 1899 he
was elected manager of the "ever-victorious" foot-
ball team of Kansas University. In this position he
has distinguished himself by his fair-minded, hon-
est management. So we might go on repeating hon-
ors and distinctions which he has won, but, as he is
a notoriously modest young man, we will refrain.
Mr. Elliott will be "at home" to his clients and
friends at his oiiice in Kansas City after September

JOHN W. HAYSON,
Pursuing the even tenor of his way, was born March

this place, and at Burlingame, Kansas, where he
later located. After three years of uneventful lite
as a country school-teacher in Osage County, he en-
tered the Kansas University Law School in the fall
of '98. Thus "quiet waters run deep."

den, New York. Entered public schools in Law-
rence in fall of '93, and graduated from the Law-
rence High School with the Class of '97. Entered

J. L. COLVIN.
As nearly as J. L. Colvin can remember, he was
born in the year 1870, in Carroll County, Illinois,
and moved to Jewell County, Kansas, in the spring
of 1880. His boyhood days were not different from
those of other children. He enjoyed the same pleas-
ures and pastimes, and had the same sorrows. More
prominent among the latter was attending school.
Later, however, he apparently developed a taste for
school. He attended school at North Branch Acad-
emy, and the Wesleyan Normal College at Lincoln,
Nebraska. Then for six years he devoted all his
time to teaching school in his home county, Jewell,
and throughout the six years he enjo-yed success
simply from following the motto: "Spoil the rod
and scare the child." He took one year 'of the Law
coursein 1895-6. Of late he has been perfecting a
scheme whereby the skins of clients can be used

public schools in 1894, and the Washington High
School in 1898. W He went to Baker University, and
remained one term. The redeeming feature in his
downward career was that he quitted Baker sosoon,
and enrolled with the Class of '00, Kansas Univer-
sity Law School, in January, 1899. He says that the
future is to-o big to give his possible location, but
will prosecute "some suit in some ordinary court of
justice to prevent or redress some wrong."

CLEMENT J. TAYLOR.
Born, reared, and cultivated on a small farm in
Hardin-County, Ohio,' Clement J. Taylor began his
his short span of life August 21, 1869. The stock
of the tree of which he is a branch was English.
At the age of ten, his father having died, he be-
came a resident of a village. Here, as a bo-y, earn-
ing his own way, and helping his family, he secured
an education, by attending school four months dur-
ing the winter, and the remainder of the year work-
ing at whatever he could get to do-farm work, in
the saw mill, factory, or store. He managed to at-
tend an academy and the Ada University. and after-
ward spent several years teaching. Following the
advice of Horace Greeley to "go west and grow up
with the country,', he went to La Veta. Colorado.
where he secured the superintendency of the city
schools. Here he met a fair Kansas damsel, Miss
Gillette, of Ottawa, and won her for his bride. In
1897, coming to Kansas to visit his wife's folks, he
decided to stay, and in the fall of 1899, entered the
Senior Law Class. ,

same in 1894. The same year he entered the Bax-
ter Springs College, and graduated in 1896. The

Was born in Darke County, Ohio, the State from
which so many great men come tMark Hanna, for
instancej, June 22, 1866. His parents removed to
Greenwood County, Kansas, in 1870, and the sub-
ject of our sketch got his early training in life lis-
tening to the plaintive tales of woe sung by the
coyotes of the "Flint Hills," and watching the fes-
tive jack rabbits gambol over the green of the then
wild and uninhabitable prairies. He had the chills,
wrestled with the drouths of Kansas, and skirmished
with the grasshoppers of 1874 and ,75 for enough
corn bread and bacon to survive. After receiving a
fair district-school education, Martindale spent one
year at the Presbyterian College of Emporia, and
three years in the Art Department of the University.
In 1889 he left the University, and is now publisher
of the JUffC?'S07liU-711 Gazette, one of the strongest and
most successful Democratic papers in the West.
While he does not expect to practice Law, he rec-
ognizes that for a broad, liberal education, no-thing
so peculiarly iits a man for any business or profes-
sional life as a course of Law. The practical news-
paper man of the Class of 1900 has made a phenom-
enal success in his chosen field, journalism, both in
a literary way and of a financial nature, and has
demonstrated that a live newspaper can be built up
in Lawrence, which has been dubbed "a newspaper
graveyard." Mr. Martindale is one of the few mar-
ried men in our class.

HOMER F. POWNALL.
Born January 6, 1875, near Clayton, Ohio. Wish-
ing to honor Kansas with his name and presence,
he moved with his parents to Neosho County, Kan-
sas. Here, on his father's farm, he scattered the
seeds of kindness and' sowed wild oats for four-
teen long years, when he entered and, in 1895,
graduated from the Thayer High School. The next
year he appeared in all his glory at the State Nor-
mal in Emporia. There he brushed up against the
pedagogues, took the craze, and taught one year.
Teaching gave him an appetite for Law, and he
entered the Junior Class in Law at Kansas Uni-
versity in '97, He attended one year. Took a re-
lapse, and taught another year. Recovered, and is
with the Senior Class this year. Mr. Pownall won
lirst place in the State Bar Association thesis con-
test this winter, and read the same before that
learned body last February. His forensic powers
will no doubt lead him to high places in the world
without Kansas University's walls.
ERNEST P. ROCHESTER.
On the 21st day of August, 1877, at Bath, Illinois,
Ernest P. Rochester became a reality. His parents
removed to Scott County, Kansas, in 1886, where
they are now residing. His occupation is that of a
printer, and his profession that of a lawyer. When
war was declared against Spain, he responded to the
Presidentls call for volunteers, enlisting in Com-
pany A of the 21st Kansas. He was mustered out
with the regiment on December 10, 1898, as ser-
geant. He distinguished himself in his company
for bravery. On January 2, 1899, he entered the
Law School in the Kansas University, and is vice-
president of the Senior Class and local editor of the
Kansas Lwwycr. 'He is also a regular member of

J. A. ANDERSON.
It is the common belief among intelligent peo-
ple, that in order to be perfectly successful, one
must come from the short-grass country. J. A. An-
derson has had the advantage of spending a num-
ber of years in the western part of this State. He
was born in Urbana, Illinois, but as he came to
Kansas early in life, it will not be surprising if his
career is almost as remarkable as if he were a native.
He was educated at Hutchinson, Kansas, and later
on attended the State Normal at Emporia, after
graduating, he taught school a. number of years,
serving as Principal at Iuka, Cullison, and Alto-n.
Mr. Anderson has had his share of the honors since
entering the Law School. In his Junior year he
was elected to represent his class in the Kansas-
Missouri preliminary contest, and at the beginning
of the Senior year the class, having to choose some
one to preside over its august assemblages, very
wisely selected him as Senior Class president. Mr.

early education was received in Leavenworth, after-
ward, she was a student for nearly four years at the
College of the Sisters of Bethany at Topeka, from
which college she was graduated valedictorian of

taking one year's work in this department, he real-
ized his time was uselessly expended in hollow
theories, and so entered the Law School to fit him-
self for a future life. During' the year 1898 he or-
ganized the famous Kansas University Band, and
was leader during its existence. He has a wonder-
ful talent for music-another element which will
tend to bring him into prominence,

LESLIE JAMES LYONS
Was born January 30, 1872, at Stanley, Kansas.
His early life was spent on a farm. After attend-
ing the public schools, he went to the Olathe High
School and Hesper Academy, graduating from the
latter institution in 1891. He was engaged in teach-
ing for five years, and during vacations acted as
deputy county clerk of Johnson County. He at-
tended Baker University two years. He was one
of the Kansas-Nebraska debaters. He will practice
Law in Kansas City, Missouri.
WILLIAM B. HESS.
William B. Hess, a native "Jayhawk," was born
at Wellington, September 21, 1877. Born and raised
in the Arkansas Valley, he imbibed some of the
"sand and grit" of that region, which has made
him his present self. His home is still in that part
of the short-grass country at Pratt. In 1897 he
graduated in the Art course of the Central Normal
College at Great Bend. For two years of his life
he followed the course of the pedagogue. He en-
tered the class at its beginning, and will be with it
at its ending. His location will be in Indiana, ad-
ministering justice to the Hoosiers. The last year's
basketball team, which defeated nearly every team
it met, found him a member, and for his good work
he was made its captain, but, owing to close work,
was forced to resign. He played center for the
"never-defeated, ever-victorious" football eleven of
'99, and made for himself an enviable record.
CARL M. STARR.
Carl M. Starr, born October 27, 1879, spent the
first five years of his life at Sigourney, Iowa. In
the spring of 1885 his parents started for the buffalo
plains of Kansas, and located at Scott City, making
the trip overland in a prairie schooner, and of course
Carl "treked" with them. At the age of nine he be-
gan his apprenticeship, learning the "art preserv-
ative" by being "devil" in his father's ofiice. He
continued at his type-sticking trade until the fall
of '98, when he entered the Law School. While at
home during vacations, Starr is the general man-
ager, foreman, and editorial editor of his father's
paper, the Scott County News-Lever.

CHARLES T. WHITTAKER.
Charles T. Whittaker, another "show me," was
born August 25, 1873, in Kansas City, Mo. At the
age of seven he removed to Johnson County, this
State, and has remained there since, except for a
short time, when he lived in Crawford County, Mis-
souri. Among other things he did while growing
up with the country was to attend the public schools
of his home county. He is a graduate of the Ed-
gerton, Kansas, High School, and has been a stu-
dent in Midland Academy, Midland, Mo., and Otta.
wa University, Ottawa, Kansas. In September, 1898,
he entered the Kansas University Law School, and,
while carrying his regular Law studies, has done
special work in the Art School. Mr. Whittaker will
continue his Law course at Ann Arbor, Michigan,
the coming year.
WILLARD REYNOLDS. '
Willard Reynolds was born in Neosho County,
Kansas, November 15, 1868. He spent the early
years of his life on the farm, then went to Parsons,
Kansas, as an employee of the Missouri, Kansas K:
Texas Railroad, and afterward attended the busi-
ness college at that place. For a short time he trav-
eled for a Chicago book concern, but subsequently
lresigned to accept a position as bookkeeper, cash-
ier, and stenographer with a mercantile establish-
ment at McCune and Parsons. Mr. Reynolds ex-
pects to practice Law in the State, but has not de-
cided as to location.

A. R. Hetzer was born at Toledo, Ill., in 1873. In
l878 he moved with his parents to Kansas, locating
in' the central part of the State, but subsequently
moved to Linn County, where he has since lived.
After attending the La Cygne High School, he
wielded the birch for a number of years, but, tiring
of this exercise, he concluded to study Law. Mr.
Hetzer will begin the practice of Law immediately
after finishing his course in the Law School.
WILLIAM HENRY WAGNER
Was born on a farm near Independence, Montgom-

armed himself with a license from the County Super-
intendent, and went forth. Sweet as the revenge
had pictured itself to him, it was not what he rel-

JAMES STEPHEN BARROW
Was born at Hollidaysburgh, Penn., October 12,1875.
He resided in Kansas City, Mo., one year, but, like
all the truly great, moved to Kansas in early life.
For twelve years he lived on a farm, then entered
the Ellinwood High School, from which he grad-
uated in 1895. Then, following the noble example
of others, he taught school for two years, and at
the close of that time entered the Art Department
at Kansas University, preparatory to taking acourse
in Law. As a. Law student Mr. Barrow is a model,
and his child-like faith in his instructors is shown
by the way he submits vexatious questions to them
for decision. He will begin the practice of Law in
Kansas City at the close of the school year.

ROBERT PEEL B. WILSON
Was born in Lancastershire, England, but in 1871
moved to the United States, and, having traveled
through five States looking for a location, finally
settled in Kansas. His early education was ob-
tained in the common schools. He was the chief
instigator in the organization of "The Rose of the
West" Lodge, No. 8, P. O. G. T., at Rockvale, Colo-
rado. At Jetmore, Kansas, he was raised to the
sublime degree of Master Mason, A. F. and A. M.,
Alpha Lodge, No. 282. While in Hodgeman County,
Kansas, was nominated for Register -of Deeds by
the Fusionists, but failed of election, while receiv-
ing the highest number of votes on his ticket. He
had the gold fever, and prospected some in Colorado,
but never struck it rich. At Great Bend, Kansas,
he attended the Central Normal School two years,
and graduated with the Special Science Class in
1898. While an Englishman by birth, his sympa-
thies are for "Oom Paul," and he expects to em-
bark for the Transvaal, and become the legal, con-
fidential adviser of that honored personage.

L. E. MCKNIGHT,
"He of modest mien," was born in Ramsey, Ill.,
March 11, 1876. Early in his career he manifested
a desire for the Law, and in his early childhood was
often caught peeping into the pantry, but why this
evidence foretells of his future profession we are
not at liberty to explain. He attended the gram-
mar school at Ramsey until ten years of age, and
then came west and settled in that wild border
town, Caldwell. He graduated from the Caldwell
High School in 1895, and at once applied himself to
the study of his chosen profession, in the office of
Herrick 85 Rogers, at Wellington, Kansas. Being
admitted to the bar flegal, of coursej in June of
1899, he, desiring the polish that a Law School can
give, entered the Senior Class at Kansas University
the next Septemberf And further deponent saith
W. J. SELLARDS.
A man from the land -of feuds and bullets. Away
down in the bluegrass country of Old Kentucky,
on October 1, 1873-this is the date handed us by
the owner of this biography, and we respectfully
refrain from further comment-Mr. Sellards was
born. He sojo-urned among the bluegrass-covered
hills of his native State until 1884, when, overhear-
ing a chance surmise that he might some day be
elected Governor of that State, he fled in haste to
Kansas. In 1893 occurred another exodus of his
own to Oklahoma. Took up a claim and remained
there, until he entered the Kansas University Law
School in the fall of 1898. He left the claim in
Oklahoma-it was too large to bring with him.. His
laudable ambition to become a lawyer is soon to be
accomplished. To what further heights it may
carry him, we do not dare predict.
ANTHONY M. ABEL '
Was born September 20, 1874, at Fernhurst, Sussex,
England. in 1884 he emigrated to America,ll'ocating
in Saline County, this State. His summers were spent
on the farm, and his winters in Salina, where he
attended the High School, and later on the Salina
Normal School. After teaching two years, he en-
tered the Law Department of Kansas University.

"A -youth to fortune and to fame unknown."
This protege of the Suniiower State was born near
Leona, Doniphan County, May 21, 1875. He is of
English, Swiss, and German ancestry and was reared
upon the farm where his father, R. B. Overlander,
an extensive farmer and raiser of fine stock, still
resides, he is one of the five surviving members of
a family of seven children, the eldest of whom is
an alumnus of Yale University, and the elder soon
to graduate from the same institution, while the
two younger are making preparations for a college
education. The initiatory steps in the education of
this young man were begun at Ottawa University.
and completed in Washburn College, at Topeka,
from which latter institution he graduated in 1898
with the degree of A.B., and in the near future will
graduate from Kansas University with the degrees
A.M. and LL.B.

Born September 25, 1873, at Gaylord, Kansas.
Died -- -. "Amiable, loving, and
self-willed." He graduated from the Lawrence High
School, and attended the Art School of Kansas Uni-
versity for eighteen months, taught school two
years, and then entered the Law Department of that
institution. So much for his past-it is secureg
the future is conjectural, but we predict a. successful
life, and hope a long one.

W. T. HARWOOD.
Much of this good-natured student's biography
remains- yet to be written, but we predict that it will
be one filled with the rewards of honest labor and
constant application. He was, from the date of his
birth, August 17, 1875, a native of Hamsoln, Hamil-
ton County, Ohio, but at the age of four years he
took his family with him to Butler County, that
State. There he settled on a farm, and prepared to
lead the simple life of a farmer, but in 1884 the
roving spirit again became irresistible, and he
"treked" for Kansas, and settled in Kingman. Fin-
ishing the High School of that city in 1896, he en-
tered the Law Department in Kansas University in
the fall of 1898. What befell him in the interim
we know not.

in school work and the cause of education, sent
their children to school, so that they might obtain
an education. At the age of nineteen, John at-
tended the Coffey County Institute, and secured a
teacher's certificate, and during the next six years
was engaged in teaching school. The last two
years of his teaching he was employed in the schools
of Gridley, Kansas. In 1897 he began the study of

young men, will arise some whose names will

Literary and Quasi-Literary.
The 'Law School atfords abundance of op-
portunities for the would-be lawyer to exer-
cise and regulate his powers of speech and
pleading, and it is well that it is thus, as
no one has more occasion for different kinds
of talks on various topics and in many divers
places than has the lawyer. He needs, above
everything else, to cultivate thought, expres-
sion, and address. The various clubs and
societies where he may receive these prac-
tical qualities, are the Kent Club, moot court,
practice and pleading courrt, the elocution de-
bating clubs, and the Adelphic.
The Kent Club, the literary society of the
Law School, was organized about the time
the Department of Law was made a part of
the University. It has come down through
these many years with varying degrees of
success, but it is now firmly established, and
has become one of the fixtures of the school.
The club meets Friday afternoons, and not
only discusses legal and current topics, but
also renders a general literary programme.
Here are developed the "Laws" who repre-
sent the University in the interstate debates.
All students of the Law School, are members
of the Kent Club, and the only requisite for
active membership is attendance art the regu-
During the first year the Juniors are re-
quired to take Elocution and Oratory. One
of the requirements as outlined for the first
half-year is the organization of debating
clubs of not more than twelve members each.
These clubs meet once a week, and render a
general literary programme, but make de-
bating and original talks a specialty. Since
the membership in each club is limited, every
one is on the programme for something each
Another aid in enabling to tl1e Juniors to
lay away their swaddling-clothes and reach
the age capable to make valid contracts for
more than necessaries, is the moot court
work, under the supervision of Dean Green
and Prof. Higgins. This court meets twice
a week, and at each session a statement of
facts is alleged and the legal effect is ar-
gued, the argument being based on the law
as found in the text-books, and decisions of
the courts as found in the reports. Each case
has four lawyers, two on each side, and the
experience and practice in looking up cases
and the law upon different questions is verv
The Seniors are haunted in their dreams
by visions of legal blanks, filled and untilled.
For them a practice and pleading court is
provided, presided over by Dr. Burdick. The
Iirst half-year the course consists of lectures
by the county ofiicers and practicing attor-
neys well learned in the profession, upon the
duties and manner of procedure in their re-
spective ofHces, and the mode of procedure in
carrying a case through the Justice of the
Peace Court, and up to the State Supreme
Court. The second half of the year is spent
upon the various legal blanks in use in the
State, and their various requ'iremen't's and
legal effect are discussed. During the clos-
ing weeks of the school year an actual case is
prepared for the criminal docket, is filed, and
a jury summoned. All the various steps and
pleadings are gone through with, as in actual
practice, and the Code and usual rules. gov-
erning the proceedings in the District Courts
are followed as to matters of law and fact.
Lastly, but not least, is the Adelphic Lit-
erary Society. This is not a Law School or-
ganization, but as the Laws dominate and
have kept it alive, it may very properly be
classed as a quasi-legal institution. The
Adelphic had its beginning during the time
when literary societies were important fact-
ors in the University life, a time so long in
the past that the 'fmemory of man runneth
not to the contrary." This society has sur-
vived the attacks and rebulfs of these inter-
vening years-a 'reminder of those halcyon
days when to be at member of a literary so-
ciety Was an honor. Perhaps the credit for
its continued existence and its rehabilitation
each year is due 'to the Law School more
than any other department. The society
meets every Friday evening in Fraser Hall,
and has a large membership and attendance.

In the fall of 1894 the then Senior Class
cf but forty-seven members were seized with
the desire to herald abroad the fame of their
beloved institution, and being of an adver-
tising turn of mind, they resolved to pub-
lish a monthly journal under the name of the
XV hen the Kansas Lawyer was started,
there were sages and prophets who predicted
for it a short career, and when it was
launched on the turbulent waves of life. the
world laughed and said: tfOh, you foolish
builders! it can never survive. The.storms
it must encounter will cast it upon the hid-
den shoals. Venture not or all will be lost."
But, undaunted by reproach, it darted into
the waters of experience. XVinds blew,
waves dashed, but how fearless it rode! for
the storms came but from the mouths of the

been compelled to assume the duties of busi-

to issue the ten numbers, involving much
time and work, but we feel more than repaid
by the experiencewe have gained. But the
time has now come when we must consign
the management of the Lawyer to the hands
of anotherg when, after two years of pleas-

It is a matter of considerable interest to
a large number of the friends of the Univers-
ity that so large a number of its students
served with the 20th Kansas. YVhen it is
remembered that the company formed from
the State educational institutions was as-
signed to another regiment, it is all the more
conclusive evidence of the University's influ-
ence on all S-tate institutions to note that of
the University men connected with the regi-
ment, two became generals, one a lieutenant-
colonel, six held the rank of captain, tive
the rank of first lieutenant, and one the
rank of second lieutenant 5 that of the non-
commissioned 'staff of the regiment, three
University men were hospital stewards, and
one was regimental quarter-master sergeant 5
that in the ranks of the various compa-
nies University men were holding non-com-
misioned otlices, as first sergeant, second ser-
geants, and corporalsg that every company
had its University representative, and that
all or nearly all of them were holding posi-
tions of trust and responsibility.
That a university education makes a man
a good soldier is evidenced by the fact that
while but one man in twenty-five in the regi-
ment became an otlicer, one in every three
a.nd a fraction of the Kansas University men
obtained that rank. It is still more gratify-
ing tothe Law Alumni to note that of its
representatives, nine were commissioned and
the other two were non-commissioned ofhcers.
GEN'L W. S. METCALF, '97, who went out as
junior major, has just recently been commis-
sioned a brigadier general by brevet. He was
twice woundedrwhiie in the service, a Mauser
bullet passing through his ear at Caloocan, and
another through his foot atBocane, Luzon, P. I.,
the latter wound being very serious and painful.
It must be conceded by all that General Met-
calf's military pride, precision, and information
did more towards perfecting the discipline and
promoting the eiiiciency of the regiment than
any other combination of influences.
CAPT.. FRED E. BUCHAN, '95, had had military
training as an officer of the Kansas National
Guards. He acted as adjutant-general of the
2d Brigade, 2d Division, 8 A. C., in Manila be-
fore the insurrection, and was in command of
the first battalion of the 20th Kansas in its first
series of engagements. The serious illness and
death of his wife, Lucinda Smith Buchan, Arts
'95, terminated his service with the regiment in
the P. I's. He has, since his discharge, been
commissioned a second lieutenant in the Regu-
lar Army, and assigned to the Sixth Cavalry.
LIEUT.-COL. E. C. LITTLE, '86, had had little
previous military ti-aiming, but being an ardent
student, he soon fitted himself for his position.
His big-hearted disposition made him a favor-
ite among the men of his battalion. His inter-
est in and care for the safety of his men re-
sulted in some very unfair criticism, but no one
who ever saw Ed Little under Hre approves such
CAPT. EDVVARD L. GLASGOW went out as iirst
lieutenant of Company M, but was promoted
captain and assigned to the command of a
company. Entering the service with no pre-
vious military training, he soon became rec-
ognized as one of the most eiiicient oiiicers in
the regiment, When the 11th Cavalry, United
States Volunteers, was formed at Manila, Glas-
gow was given a commission as captain, in
which capacity he is still serving. And here 's
hoping that the boys who are still serving their
country in- the far-off tropic isles will receive
regular promotions, and will be permitted to
return in health and strength to their native
CAPT. WILLIAM J. WATSON, '96, was a justice of
the peace in Pittsburg, Kansas, when he en-
listed. He was elected first lieutenant of Com-
pany D, and was promoted to captain, and was
assigned to Company E while the regiment was
entrenched at Caloocan. The first fight in
which he commanded, his company saw some
very severe service at the Tuliajan River. In
this battle he handled his men with remarkable
coolness and courage. He was severely wound-
ed at Guiguinto, March 29, 1899, a bullet pass-
ingthrough both lungs, and it has not yet been
removed from his body. At the expiration of
his service with the 20th Kansas, he was com-
missioned a first lieutenant of the 40th Infantry,
U. S. V. He returned with that regiment tothe
P. I's, and has since been promoted to captain.
CAPT. CLAD HAMILTON, '92, a practicing attor-
ney, of Topeka, Kansas, entered the service as
a private. Acted as clerk at regimental head-
quarters, while the regiment was at Camp Mer-
ritt, San Francisco. Was there appointed first
sergeant of Company B. He was appointed sec-
ond lieutenant at Camp Merriam, Presidio, San
Francisco. He acted as brigade quartermaster
during the early days of the insurrection, and
was promoted first lieutenant and subsequently
captain, and assigned to Company A, the To-
peka company. No man in the regiment, and
indeed few men in the entire Volunteer Army,
received so many promotions as did Clad Ham-
ilton, and yet there is not a man to be found
who will not say that he deserved them all.
ALFRED o. ALFORD, '97, first lieutenant, had held
all the various ranks in Company H, lst Regi-
ment, Kansas National Guard, from private to
second lieutenant, in which capacity he went out
with Company H, 20th Kansas. He was soon
promoted to first lieutenant and assigned to
Company B, and while leading that company
was killed in action February 7, 1899, near
Caloocan, Luzon, P. I. Much has been said ot
Alford's merits as a student, a soldier, and a
gentleman. Suffice it to say here, that of all
the eloquent tributes which have been paid to
his memory, none have even approximated the
greatness of the man.
CAPT. ADNA G. CLARKE, '97, was captain of
Company H, lst Regiment, Kansas National
Guard, at the time the 20th Kansas was formed,
and went out as captain of Company H of that
regiment. He was in command of the post
guard at the time the outbreak occurred. Was
severely wounded in the right shoulder at the
Tuliajan River, March 25, 1899. Returned to
San Francisco, Cal., August 2, 1899, on the
United States hospital ship Relief.
FIRST LIEUT. E. GUY SIMPSON, '98, Went out as
first sergeant of Company H, 20th Kansas, was
promoted second lieutenant Company L in the
field near Caloocan, and subsequently promoted
to first lieutenant Company H, with which or-
ganization he came home. While first sergeant
he was known, by those of the company who
required discipline, as "the big unjust." It is a
fact, however, that no man who filled that difli-
cult position ever acted with greater fairness
and fidelity. It may be said of Simpson that he
was far more successful in living the life of a
Christian soldier than an eminent minister has
recently been in editing a Christian daily.
M. DE VERE RAFTER, '98, Was appointed hospital
steward while the regiment was encamped at
the Presidio of San Francisco, Cal. He made
four trips across the Pacific as hospital steward
of an army transport. It is reported that De
Vere enjoyed his duties while serving with a
volunteer organization, but that he never could
accustom himself to the ways of regular service.
With all due respect, it may be said that his
work as a "saw-bones" was not sufliciently dis-
tinguished to tempt other lawyers to desert their
HARRY GLEN DAVIS, '98, enlisted as a private in
Company H, 20th Kansas, without hope of pro-
motion, because that company, being a National
Guard organization, was already oiiicered. He
served faithfully and intelligently as a private
soldier, and was appointed corporal While the
company was in Manila. As an extra duty, he
mastered the art of the army "wig-wags."

Dim and faint through a halo of his own glory."
It falls to the lot of 4'The Shinglei' to men-
tion the annual Law Alumni banquet, and
not yet being an alumnus, f'The Shingle" has
not the power to speak from experience. . But
it has dreamed land are not banquets the stuff
of which dreams are made?j of a banquet.
Allow it to speak of that prophesying vision 5
one which needs no Joseph to interpret. -
This dream carrie as all good dreams come
-in the early waking hours. An hour of all
the hours 'twixt the dawn of day and the
one wherein the morning star shines thc
brightest. Spreading away down a bril-
liantly lighted hall was a festive board, at
which sat half a thousand men. For once
there had come together, if only in a passing
dream, all who had gone out forever from the
class-rooms. At the upper end of the room,
near the Dean, sat the earlier classes. Here
many of the heads were gray. At the foot,
near "The Shingle," it recognized the more
familiar faces of the graduates of 1900. Here
and there where each class was grouped were
a few of the weaker sex, but all were there.
At the head of the board sat the Dean, and
though far from "The Shingle," it could sec
an appreciative twinkle in his eye as he noted
what each speaker said. How with quick
perception he remarked how each had grown
in eloquence, matured in reason, or expanded
And the feast! 'Twas a double feast. The
memo of the one contained the best of the
viands 'the productive soil of a great State
could provide, augmented by special dainties
from every quarter of the globe, the mcmu of
the second was Reason, Humor, and Poetry
dished up with Eloquence, and served by
Good Cheer and Fellowship. .
As "The Shingle? well fed a.nd comfort-
able, listened, 'heard the words of others, ones
to whose voices the worldtwould now listen
if they but spoke for it, it wished that it, too,
could be alive, to move and breathe, and with
that breath to talk.. as 'those men were talk-
ing. And as .it mused and thought of itself
in a human form,:erect and manly, speaking,
not with cold and- ugly print, but with the
fire of a human vo-ice, as a dream within
a drea.m, come to grant its wish, there stood
such a one, dim and faint through a halo of
his own glory, but with a face the compose
ite of the Olds-S of 1900.
But here "The Shinglev awoke, and the in-
terpretation of its vision we leave to you.

A GREETIN G.
"Brother in a most true brotherhood, thy hand:
I, too, am from Kansas, God's favored land.
And from K. U.'s halls, with your LL.B.?
Shake again! You 're more than brother to me-
We have both studied under Uncle Jiinfl
"What! You of the nineties swore by his name?
Why, back in the eighties 'twas just the same,
I'm glad his place is not filled by anotherg
Some may be teachers-but he was a brother
To the boys who called him Uncle Iimf'
"I remember how--I expect you 've seen him do it-
When one of his boys was in trouble, and he knew it
He 'd pull him out, though he was in the wrong,
But the lecture that followed was no lullaby song,
That fellow 'd get from Uncle Jim."
"But-yes, I know-his frowns would end with a grin,
,And some Profs. even dubbed his familiarity a sin.
You 've got' his picture? Let me see it again.
Many never made lawyers, but he kept us men,
And as such we 'll never forget Uncle Jim."
JUDGMENT FOR PLAINTIFF.
A youth and a maid strayed by the seag
A brilliant and young attorney was he,
A maid worthy of wooing was she,
And in these words he filed his plea:
"Oh fair judge, my pelzlion hear,
"And grant, oh gentle court, my prayer,-
" My slaiemeni I will verqy,
"And the best evzkienee supply.
'4My sm? is but on justice based,
"My heart is cruelly ddaeed-
"In fact is broken quite, unless
"You gran! relief to my a'z's!ress.
4'Wherefore said for! so great
"Demands, as damage, as I state
" In this my humble, closing prayer,
"This hand I hold, so small and fair."
The maiden, blushing, hungiher head.
What matter if no word she said?
What could she do but grant the plea,
When no one answered it, you see?
The moral is as plain as it is truezz
" In caurlzezgf make the judge a parbf, too."
Law Students-Ancient and Modern.
In attempting to compass with a compara-
tively few lines the field of legal education,
one undertakes an impossible task. Let me
rather, therefore, try to present a few facts
concerning lawyers and their studies, which
may prove of interest, although void of log-
In the early days of ancient Rome there
was no distinct professional class of lawyers.
In the year 450 B. C., the Decemvirs, in re-
sponse to the popular demand for the codi-
lication of the laws, prepared those immortal
statutes known as the Laws of the Twelve
Tables. After the Twelve Tables, the Col-
lege of Pontifices was the repository of law
learning, and the control of the calendar
gave the college the control of the calendar
of the courts.
The earliest record I find of a Roman law-
yer is that of Tiberius Coruncanius, who was
the first plebeian powt-ifeav mawifrnus, in 281
B. C. He was the first to put out his Ushin-
gle," or to declare himself a professional
lawyer. His act must have had many fol-
lowers, because in 203 B. C., seventy-eight
years later, the Lex Uinciu. prohibited legal
advisers from receiving any compensation for
their services. This principle pervaded the
Roman law for centuries. Services were
gratuitous. Clients frequently- made large
presents to their legal friends, but nothing
could be' exacted. Indeed, I believe it is the
law in England, to-day, that even there, and
in these times, a barrister's services are, in
principle, gratis, and that no action can be
maintained for legal assistance. Before
Cicerofs time, however fCicero was born 106
B. CJ, there was a distinct and recognized
profession of the law. There were three
classes of lawyers-namely: '
1. The J urisconsults fJu1'isconsultij.
2. The Advocates fzlclfznoccztij.
3. The Orators or Patrons fOratores,
The great authorities in the Law were
the Jurisconsults. In this class was Cicero,
and Servius Sulpicius Rufus, who was con-
sul 50 B. C. Of Rufus it was said, by Cicero,
that he was the greatest Roman lawyer of
his day. The Jurisconsults gave opinions
K1-esponsaj upon legal questions. They did
not appear in court.
The Advocates, something like the En-
glish attorneys and counsellors, were friends
at court, accompanying one into court, giv-
ing advice and directions. These men, how-
ever, did not speak in behalf of clients.
The third class, the Orators or Patrons,
was the conspicuous class. T'hese were the
public speakers and the pleaders. At differ-
ent times the same man might be in a differ-
ent class. Cicero often appeared in court,
but then as an Orator, not as a Jurisconsult.
Time, however, does not suiiice to enter
into details. In imperial times there' was
little practice of the Law as such. The sov-
ereign was the Law, and only a limited num-
ber of Advocati was permitted to attend each
place of justice, thus making 'fthe Law" one
of the earliest of monopolies.
In 534 A. D. the great jurist Tribonian,
under order of the Emperor J ustinian, com-
piled the Code o-f the Roman Law, which is
the basis to-day.of the magnificent system
of the Civil or Roman Law. This spread
with Roman influence over a great part of
Europe, and the codes of the continental
European nations, to-day, are the success-
ors of the Code of Rome. In J ustinian's time
there were three great schools of law, one
at Rome, another at Constantinople, a third
at Berytus, modern Beyrout. YV e think we
have advanced because we have changed our
two-years course to three. T'hese Roman
schools required five years.
Such little glimpses as are afforded us
of the procedure in Roman law courts show
that human nature was the same then
as now. In those days there were rant-
ing fellows who "sawed the air," and
who supposed they were objects of admira-
tion to gods and men as they substituted
rubbish and bombast for legal argument.
The Roman poet Martial tells us of a poor
client who entreated his lawyer, a long-
winded speaker, to say something about the
real issue, a simple matter of the ownership
of three goats. The suffering client exclaimsz
ffYou, with full lungs, and with pounding of
the bar with your fists, make a noise about
the battle of Cannae, the war of Mithridates,
the peridy of the Carthaginians, about Sulla
and Marius, and Mucius. Say something, I
pra.y you, about my three goats.
It is a long step from Rome to England,
but most students of the English Common
Law fail to appreciate the debt that the Com-
mon Law owes to the Roman Law. In fact, it
was due to the antagonism and the regret-
ful rivalry between the two systems that
modern English law schools, if they can be
called law schools, arose.
The universities of England, being under
'the control of the ecclesiastics, offered cour-
ses in the Canon-and Civil Law, but refused
to teach the Common Law of England, which
as a. scientific system was discredited and
even despised by the clergy. In this state
of affairs, Blackstone tells us, that upon the
fixing of the courts of common pleas at YVest-
minster, by King John, the lawyers gathered
in that vicinity, and having purchased the
old town houses or the inns fnot public tav-
ernsl of Earls Gray and Lincoln, also the
assembly halls of the Knights Templar, the
four great inns or halls of the law courts
were instituted-namely, Gray's Inn, Lin-
coln's Inn, the Middle Temple, and the Inner
Temple. Blackstone is doubtless mistaken
in the time of the origin of the English law
courts, and with Lord Mansfield we may
more safely say that the exact time of the
institution of them is uncertain. YVe do
know, however, that Fortescue, who died a
few years before Columbus discovered Amer-
ica, tells-us that in his day over two thou-
sand students were studying Law in the
various Inns of Court. The names of the
greatest of English jurists have been connect-
ed with these halls, where for centuries young
Englishmen have resorted to read La.w with
their preceptors and to listen to readers of
the Law, appointed by the governing com-
mittees or the "benches" as they are still
called. Coke, Holt, Hale, Blackstone, Hard-
wicke were at different periods entered here.
There is no doubt that in the early days the
Inns were great schools, requiring rigid ap-
plication and close study. In later days,
however, even in Blackstone's time, they had
become mere travesties upon legal study,
were farces of la.w schools. Finally, one
could be called to the bar if he 'fhad kept
twelve terms" at the Inns. A termis attend-
ance was proven by the number of dinners
one had eaten there, ive dinners at least be-
ing the minimum attendance at a "term," It
followed, therefore, that if one could prove
that he had eaten sixty dinners at the Inns,
he was, peer sc, entitled to 'fadmission to the
bar? No examinations of any kind, it seems,
At the present time, however, all is
changed for the betterg In the vicinity of
the new Palace of Justice, upon 'the Strand,
in London, the old Inns still have their quar-
ters. Examinations are now rigid, and to-
day one cannot be called to the bar before
he has passed successful examinations in
Jurisprudence, Civil Law, International Law,
and English Law. They are not law schools
as we understand the term, with: regular
classes, but the "benchers" appoint lecturers
or readers whose exposition of the Law
matriculants may hear, and, if they wish, ap-
ply in due time for examination. The old
Inns used to give titles or "degrees," known
as Nbarristerv and 'fsergeantf' To-day the
title of sergeant is no longer given, and a
ba.rrister's ambition is to be enrolled a Q. C.
fQueen's Co-unsell, which may be attained
after a stated term of service at the bar.
The English barrister is more like the Ro-
man patromcs than our lawyer. An "attor-
ney" in England, is one of a distinct class
of lawyers. The 'fattorneyv prepares the
papers, the pleadings, the case. No barris-
ter is permitted, in general, to appear with-
out the intervention of the 'fattorneyff
Our "Bachelor of Laws" is an American
institution. In the universities of Germany
there are four faculties or schools: one of
Theology, one of Medicine, one of Philosophy
fincluding'Languages, Mathematics. Sciencej,
and one of Law. The degree there given is
the doctorate, which can be obtained only by
one having a preliminary education equal to
that of a college course. It will be remem-
bered that in this country, Harvard, at thc
present time, and Columbia, beginning in
1903, require a college education as the
standard of admission. '
"But say, I pray you, something about
my three goats." It is time now to speak
of our own schools. It is interesting to
note that for a hundred years after the
Pilgrims settled at Plymouth 'there was
not a lawyer in all New England. Possibly,
this may explain the severity and the nar-
row-mindedness of our revered forefathers.
In fact, however, there was, -in those primi-
tive days, but little need of lawyers. Lest,
perchance, some "Arts" should say, "Happy
people, happy day!', let us next recall that
in a few years, when great questions of lib-
erty, government, legislation, and justice
arose, then the lawyer also appeared. Of the
fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Inde-
pendence, twenty-five were lawyers. Of the
fifty-five members of the Constitutional Con-
vention, thirty were lawyers. Although in
those days the favorite method of studying
Law was in the office of a lawyer, yet very
soon after the close of the Revolution, or
in 1784, the first la.w school in the United
States was opened at Litchneld, Conn. Har-
vard was the first university to open a law
school, and hers was the second school, dat-
ing from 1817. Yale followed in 1824. To-
day there are eighty-six law schools in the
country, most of them well conducted ably
instructed. The day of law study in an office
has not wholly passed, for many of the best
lawyers of the country never saw the inside
of a school of law. None will denv. however,
that the time has come when he who would
study the Law as a science, should connect
himself with some good school.
In conclusion, let me say, as I have fre-
quently stated in 'the class-room. that -the
study of the Law is not a mere trade-craft,
but a liberal science, and worthy of one's
noblest efforts. Emory VVashburn said, thir-
ty years ago, and it is just as true to-day:
f'There is no school so well calculated to
educate a young man in all respects as a
good law school. In that is embraced a good
library, good instructors, and a body of in-
genuous young men who have come together
with high purposes, generous motives, and
old enough to know what is due from one
gentleman to another. They should be in-
depend-ent enough to rebuke rudeness or
coarseness in any of their number, and to
imprint lessons of propriety on the minds
and memories of the most reckless among
I wish the Class of 1900 a heart-felt 4'God-
speed you" as it leaves us. Remember that
loud mo-uthings and exhibitions of anger
never make a. lawyer. Never forget what
belongs to a gentleman, and never deny your
claim to be one.
A final word of encouragement: The next
few years are years of tests of endurance,
but to the young lawyer who both works
and waits, the reward will come. In the first
fourteen years after being called to the bar,
Blackstone had only two cases, both of them
unimportant. Horace Binney waited ten
years for a. fee. Webster's receipts were so
small for several years after he was admitted
that he seriously considered the abandon-
ment of his profession. Rufus Choate, his
biographer tells us, also during his iirst two
or three years, was several times upon the
point of turning to other pursuits. With pa-
tience, zeal, and fidelity these periods of dis-
couragement, however, can be bridged, and
the young lawyer can, if he but will, enter in
time into the promis-ed land.

,"The Shinglel, is out, anxious inquirer.
The last page has been written, the last stick
of type has been set, and this book, a new
venture for theffiansas Law School, has been
given to the world. The editors have not
aimed to make it a text-book on any subject.
They have, therefore, made no use of many
legal articles which might have Hlled up its
pages. Believing that its patrons wished for
a souvenir that would represent the lighter
side of life, we have so tried in our book to
The advent of "The Shingle" is coincident
with the dawn of a new era for the Law
School, as well as the closing of a century
for the world. As the herald of such "The
Shinglev goes forth. May it ever be an ob-
ject of remembrance to every member of the
Class of 1900, to call up pleasant memories to
them in after years. May it carry a message
to those of a devoted alumni who yet rever-
ence this institution. Its spirit is not one
of anta.gonisn1, but a desire to chronicle the
fruits of a worthy past. P
Should there be other f'Shingles" in the
years to come, the Class of 1900 will extend
to them a welcoming hand, and give them
places on their shelves.
Our 'task is Iinished. The work is submit-
ted to' your examination. VVe trust to the
intelligence of our rea.ders to appreciate its
merits, upon which every work must stand
or fall. If they derive as much pleasure from
it as the board has, the labor will not have
been in vain. '

Where our lawyers get inspiration for oratorical efforts.
Needs of the
Every lawyer or would-be lawyer, from the
ablest jurist to the youngest student who
visits the University, notes the needs of the
Kansas Law School. From its establish-
ment it has been a struggle to get: Hrst, ap-
propriations, second, lecturers, third, room,
and worst of all, a sufficient library. Per-
haps you don't know it, but if NUncle Jim-
mief' should remove his own private library,
which he has so generously donated to the
use of the students, there would hardly be
books enough left to make even a 4'starter"
towards a law library. '
The Kansas Law School needs room, and
needs it badly. It has always been kicked
around from "pillar to postf' Wie need a
building, we need a libra.ry, and we need
more liberal trea.tment. The time is coming
when the Law School will get what it needs
and wants. The future statesmen and poli-
ticians of Kansas will number many more
who have a f'LL.B." subscribed to their
names, acquired from the Kansas Law School.
YVhat we need we are going to have, and it
can be depended upon.
T'he following extracts are taken from re-
port of the Committee on Legal Education
and S-tate University Law School, read be-
fore and adopted by the Kansas State Bar
Association at Topeka, January 30, 1900, by
L. H. Perkins, of Lawrence, Kas.. chairman:
"Your committee is greatly pleased to re-
port that the school enters this year upon a
new era, having added a third year to the
course. The Junior Class which has now en-
tered for the three-years course is one of the
largest in the history of the school, and it is
plain tha.t with three classes instead of two,
as heretofore, the attendance is likely to in-
crease from about one hundred and iifty to
two hundred and twenty-five, without count-
ing the regular annual increase. Hence, with-
in the next three ye-ars, quarters will have
to be provided for about two hundred and
fifty students. The quarters in Fraser Hall
are who-lly inadequate for the present attend-
ance, and the State must suitably house this
great and growing school.
"The second recommendation of your com-
mittee is that the next building at the Uni-
versity be for the Law School, and that the
next Legislature appropriate 380,000 for such
building and equipment.
'fYour committee found but one set of
Kansas Supreme Court and Court of Appeals
Reports, and but one copy of the last edition
of the General Statutes. Imagine one hun-
dred and fifty lawyers trying to consult one
book! It is therefore recommended that the
Executive Committee deposit with the Law
School four complete sets of Supreme Court
and Court of Appeals Reports, and four
copies of the General Statutes.
fflt is also recommended that the members
of this association urge their representatives
in the Legislature to make a separate and
distinct appropriation of 310,000 for the
library of the Law School, which is wholly
inadequate and bears no sort of comparison
with the libraries of first-class law schools."

"The time has come when there is no
longer any rivalry between the country law
office and the State University Law School.
It would be well for the Law to require at
least three years' study before admission to
the bar, but whether it does or no, the Law
School will continue to grow and overflow
with ambitious young men and women, who
will refuse to be persuaded that urbanity
and scholarship and culture count for noth-
ing among the attainments of a successful
f'The value and work of the Law School is
no longer to be tested by numbers. It can
make its standard equal to the highest and
still have numbers enough. 'Let us give it
all possible countenance, encouragement and
support, and in the coming years these halls
will shine with its light, and it will repay
tenfold honors to the State Bar Association

.- Meanwhile he pored over volumes old,

At last one man did that stairway climb,
i One who was charged with a felonious crime
' His guilt to the lawyer he admitted,
A- But asked some way to be acquitted.
. The lawyer listened with eager care
, To the story the horse-thief told him there.
As the law was all against his man,
He thought a speech to the jury the plan
When came the time for the case to be tried,
Down to the court-room our lawyer hied.
The county attorney's speech was brief-
For the proof had been all against the thief-
So when he brought his short address to a close,
With finished grace our lawyer arose,
Upon the the jury bestowed a smile.
Cleared his throat and coughed a while.
The room was packed with an idle crowd,
So our lawyer talked in accents loud.
He quoted law from authorities old,
Cited cases, and sad stories toldg
He began at two, but the evening sun
Sank, and he wasn't half done.
Sunset's beauties and liberty's charm, -
Social temptations, and life on the farm,
These and others came in for a share-
Hour after hour he talked to them there.
And the arguments, that he thought deep,
But soothed and lulled the crowd to sleep.
At first the spectators gave way to the spell
Then the bailiif dropped oH', as well.
The jury, one by one, began to doze,
Till all the twelve were in calm repose,
When the gray-hairedjudge gave up at last
Nodded a moment, and was soon as fast
Asleep as the rest of the sleeping crowd,
The lawyer timed his words to snoring loud.
As soon as he saw that the sheriff slept,
The prisoner away from the court-room crept,
Untied and mounted the judge's steed,
And rode away at a furious speed.
Over the prairie the horse-thief sped.
Little he cared what his lawyer said.
That night as the stars began to peep
The janitor came his trust to keep,
To lock and bar the court-room door,
But looking in, he softly swore.
The lawyer was nearing the end at last,
Speaking to a court and jury now fast
Asleep. A happy flush was on his brow,

THOROUGH MODERN AMERICAN
THE LAW 0F WILLS
Their Execution, Revocation and Construction, the Rules of Real
Property Law and the Doctrines of Equity Most Frequently
A Applied to Wills.
By H. C. UNDERHILL. LLB.,
OF THE NEW YORK BAR.
Author cf "A T realise on the Law ofEz1ia'enee," ana' "A Treatise on
tlze Law of Criminal Evidencef' ele.
This work contains in two volumes an exhaustive and comprehensive view of the
whole Law of Wills. Careful attention is paid to the rules of construction, and to subjects
such as the Rule in Shelleyis Case, Estates upon Condition and upon Limitation, Tenancy in
Common, Equitable Conversion, Satisfaction and Election, Annuities, Gifts Causa Morlis,
Trust Estates and Powers, Charities, Perpetuities, Vesting, Domicile, etc , which are often
involved in will cases. A A
VOLU ME l.
Is complete in itself, arranged and indexed to sell separately. It comprises the elementary
principles of law which are peculiar to Wills, as Execution, Revocation, Testamentary
Capacity, Undue Influence, Lapse, Ademption, Survivorship, Abatement, etc. It is designed
to be used separately from its companion volume, and as an introduction to it, by students,
as a full exposition of the Law of Wills. - A
Contains a full exposition of the rules and principles of the construction and interpretation of
testamentary language, and of those rules of the law of real property and doctrines of Equity
Jurisprudence which are very frequently employed in connection with wills. It is meant to
be used by the practitioner, together with the first volume, and it may also be read with profit
by the student.
'THE ,TWO VOLUMES
Cover the entire field of Testamentary Law as it exists to day. The propositions in the text
are sustained and affirmed by more than 17,000 carefully selected citations, the majority of
which are American cases of recent date.

t A TREATISE ON THE

By JAMES DE WITT ANDREWS.
ONE LARGE OCTAVO VOLUME, 86.50 NET, DELIVERED.
The Plan is analytical, being an application of the same principles of legal analysis
applied by Gaius and justinian in the Institutes, followed by Hale and Blackstone and
endorsed by Wilson, Sir William Jones, Austin, Pollock and Chalmers.
The Outline of the work shows the whole body of the law in logical order and relation.
The Treatment consists of a presentation of the origin of rules, the fundamental pring
ciple uponlwhich they depend, and their present condition and application. The treatment,
then, is elemenlary, seientzfie and eminentbf praelieal.
The Citation follows the method so much commended in- Mr. Andrews' earlier
treatises, viz : the citation of the great Leading Cases, where the rules are formulated or ex-
pounded, with the modern great Ruling Cases, showing the prevailing and conflicting views
of the law, to which is added such Collateral Citations as will enable one to make an exhaust-
ive brief on the subject. ' ' p
The Richness of Citation is in this manner enhanced vastly over the space it occu-
pies in the notes ,About 7,000 elzoiee eases are cited.
The Value of Citation is beyond comparison with that attainable by any other method.
It is greatly increased by judicious references to the American Decisions, American Reports,
American State Reports, Lawyers' Reports Annotated, and English Ruling Cases.
AS an Elementary Treatise it is the clearest, the most comprehensive, the most
practical and scientific ever offered to the American student.
Is a Practical WOI'k for the busy lawyer. The wheat is separated from the chaff.

GQULD Q PLEADI G.
Since its first appearance inil832, james Cgould's work on Pleading has been the'
standard work on that subject for the use of law students, and has for years in many law
colleges been used as a text-book. '
Pleading, as well asrother departments of the law, has undergone many changes since
Mr. Gould wrote his treatise. Many matters treated in the original work are now obsolete
and serve only to confuse rather than enlighten, while new matters not there treated'require
explanation to the modern law student. '
In ten years' woik as instructor and lecturer on this subject, the- editor, Mr. Adelbert
Hamilton, of Chicago, using Gould's work as a basis, has gathered many notes relative to
these changes and additions, and these have been embodied in a reprint ofthe work, bringing
it down to l899 and making it answer exactly the needs of the modern law student. The orig-
inal text has been preserved when possible, and distinguished from the new matter by 'quotation
marks. Enough citation of case authority is given for student purposes, and the simpler and
elementary forms are also incorporated. - M ,
In many Colleges of Law, perhaps in most, the tex-books on Pleading are more or less
inadequate. When this is the case, we will be pleased to furnish the instructor in this
department the fullest opportunity for looking into the merits of this work, with a view to its
introduction. We invite correspondence in this line. I
