TALKED WITH NEW YORK,
The Inaugural Test of the Long
Distance Telephone in Ann
Arbor a Success.
Yesterday afternoon a number of
professors and newspaper represen-
tatives were present at the inaugur-
:ation of the long distance telephone
in Ann Arbor. Among those pres-
ent, besides the representatives of
the Argus, Register, Courier, U. of
M. Daily and Times, were Pres.
Angell, Sec'y Wade, Major Soule
and Prof. Carhart.
The test was a most satisfactory
one, as the conversation, over a
thousand miles of wire, was more
distinct than in the local service.
Conversation was had with New
York, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit
and Port Huron. One newspaper
oan was confronted with the fol-
lowing question: "Have you even
talked with NewV Yawk befoah,"
and being unfanilliar with Yankee
dialect, was taken somewhat by sur-
prise, much to the gratification of
The question of another joint
debate between the University of
Michigan and the University of
Wisconsin is again being consid-
ered at the former institution. The
debate last year was not as success-
ful as was expected owing to a dis-
agreement in conditions under which
the debate was to take place. The
literary societies of the University
should consider the matter of a de-
bate this year, and if it is thought
desirable to have such a debate, the
conditions should be arranged in
accordance with the wishes of both
sides as far as possible. -Daily
That Sophomore Election.
There has been trouble in the
camps of '96. One of its warriors,
who, but shortly, smoked the pipe
of peace in the retirement of his
teppee, has put on war paint, and is
now a decidedly "bad injun." It
appears that the cause of the trouble
was an article in one of Detroit's
evening papers, which stated that a
certain prominent member of '96
was an ardent candidate for class
president. Now, when it is known
that the man who occupies this
chair has generally the honor thrust
upon him and that it is the custom
to make the unfortunate both "pres-
ident and his vice," the liumor of
the situation may be appreciated.
The man who wrote the article, one
of the best known correspondents in
college, is in hiding, and the "can-
didate" was down town last night
whooping things up in a lively man-
I ner. At last reports, he was track-
ing the correspondent to his lair.
The Inland League.
;The opening entertainment of the
Inland League will be given at the
Church of Christ, on Monday even-
ing at S o'clock p. us. Prof. H. L.
Willett, A. t., will deliver his cel-
ebrated lecture on Savonarola, and
Miss Alice Bailey, of the Univer-
sity School of Music will sing sev-
eral beautiful solos. Prof. A. A.
Stanley will play the accompani-
ments. 'his is a good opportunity
to hear a good lecture and listen to
some sweet music at a sery low
price. The admission at the door
is ten cents. Season tickets ad-
isitting to the entire course of 20
evening are on sale at various places
in town at S :00.
Junior Laws Meet.
The junior laws met immnediately
after the quiz yesterday and tran-
sacted some important business.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read and approved,
the report of the committee on con-
stitution and by-lass was read.
This committee submitted the con-
stitution, handed down from year to
year by the preceeding class which
was unanimously adopted. A com-
mittee of three was next appointed
to select a class motto and colors.
After some little debate on parlia-
mentry rules, it was decided to hold
an election for the chosing of class
officers, four weeks from next Satur-
day, at 9 o'clock.
Courtney Wil Remain.
The $s,200 necessary to retain
Trainer Courtney, at Cornell, will
probably be secured, $936 having
been obtained day before yesterday.
If Courtney stays, a launch will
probably be purchased by the navy,
like those Harvard and Yale have.

promise of success this year is very
