WHAT IS ELOQUENCE?
The Subject of Gen. Ewing's Ad-
dress Before the Oratorical
Hon. William G. Ewing, who
speaks before the Oratorical Associ-
ation, Saturday night, is one of Chi-
cago's most eminent jurists.
Judge Ewing was born near
Bloomington, Ill., May 11, 1839,
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1893.

where he resided but for a short
time. While teaching school in
Kentucky he spent all his spare
moments in studying law and was ad-
mitted to the bar in 1861. Since
that time Judge Ewing was twice
city attorney of Quincy and for two
terms state's attorney of the Quincy
judicial district. He also served as
United States attorney for the
Northern district of Illinois. In
1882 he removed to Chicago and,
until 1892, when he was elected one
of the judges to the Cook County
Superior Court, has been actively
engaged in the practice of his pro-
As an orator, Judge Ewing stands
a peer to any in the country, and
his oratory is of a kind which car-
ries the listener along in deepest
sympathy with the words and
thoughts of the speaker. The inter-
est never flags for a moment and
however cold and prosaic one may
be, he cannot fail to be infected
with the fire and poetry of the
Judge Ewing possesses in its
highest degree that subtle, impal-
pable, all pervading something,
called personal magnetism. We do
not simply comprehend, we feel
what he says. Back of his eloquent
word painting, back of his nervous,
forcible sentences is the man him-
self and it is the man with his cer-
tain inexpressible charm who ap-
peals to the audience.
At the banquet given by the Dem-
ocratic club of the University in
91, Judge Ewing responded to a
toast. The subject and occasion
were such as to demand the best
even from him. All expected much
and no one was disappointed.
Sparkling wit, deep pathos, earnest
purpose, light and shade, and be-
hind it all, himself. The vast audi-
ence was spell bound, electrified,
and as he finished, rounds of ap-
plause greeted him. Nit even the
silver tongued Breckenridge made a
deeper imupression than lie, that
Those who hear him Saturday
night on "What is Eloquence?'' will,
we prophesy, enjoy the evening
thoroughly and if he can ipart the
secret of his own rare powers, Miclh-
igan need have no fear of future

The Astronomical Society will
meet Saturday evening, at 7:30 0'-
clock, in the lecture room of the
physical laboratory. The subject
before the meeting will be "The
Solar System as Seen Through the
Lick Telescope,' given by Prof.
Townley, late of Lick Observatory,
but now of this institution. The
lecture will be illustrated by stere-

NINETY-SIX AND NINETY-SEVEN
Each Has a Strong Team ard Will
Cut a Figure in the Class Con-
While the thick covering of snow
that is on the ground, at present,
has slightly dampened the enthusi-
asm over the inter-class football
games, and there is even some talk
of having to put them off till spring,
yet the captains and members of
the various class teams are getting
everything in readiness for a hot
contest, and great rivalry exists be-
tween the classes. The DAi s has
already given the make-up of the
'94 and '95 teams, and those of '96
and '97 are now in order.
The team that '96 will put into
the field will be a strong one, indi-
vidually and as a whole. Among
the number are two 'Varsity men,
Freund and Greenleaf; but Baird,
who has resigned the captaincy to
Greenleaf, will not. play. The fol-
lowing will probably be the line-up:
Left end, Ryan; left tackle, Cumi-
mer; left guard, Raikes; center,
Evans; right guard, Wolcott; right
tackle, Thompson; right end, Thorpe
or Hanford; quarter and captain,
Greenleaf; left half, Freund; right
half, Miarsden; full back, Mclen-
A freshman team is always an un-
certain quantity, but it is safe to say
that the team '97 now has in readi-
ness will be no easy mark for op-
Two 'Varsity men are with '97
also, Henninger and Bourland,
while Ferbert's lame ankle will pre-
vent his playing. While most of
the men are inexperienced, yet so
faithfully and willingly have they
come out for practice, appearing on
the campus almost as regularly as
the 'Varsity team, that Capt. Keep
is quite confident of victory. To
Mr. I. Hill, manager, is due much
of the credit for the enthusiasm dis-
played by '97. The following line-
up is probably the correct one:
Ends, Bourland and Barrenburg;
tackles, Farnham and Hawkins;
guards, Henninger and Dicken; cen-
ter, Wahmbacher; halves, Lorman
and Spicer; full back, Capt. Keep.
Ninety-seven has succeeded in
immortalizing itself. Some ingeni-
ous freshman is no doubt to blame
for the tatooing of a white dog, who
is carrying around a large "97,''
beautifully done in red and blue.
