The Big Chimney and Tunnel.
A student returning to the campus
after the summer vacation would
scarcely recognize it as the place he
left this spring. The ground is strewn
with timber of all description, with
here and there a pit or hillock as if
an earthquake had been at work.
Everywhere there are signs of im-
provement and there is hardly a build-
ing which has not received some at-
The greatest change, however, has
been in the method of heating by

The old system of heating having
proven inadequate the buildings will
now be heated from a central heating
plant from which a tunnel or conduit
will extend to e-vcry building on the
This central plant is located near the
medical building, where the new
boiler-house formerly stood. This
building was torn down to the founda-
tion walls, enlarged and is now well
under way. The basement will con-
tain the 16 boilers necessary for heat-
ing and is 141/2 ft. in depth. Large
coal bins have been constructed of
the same depth.
On the west side of the boiler-house
and in direct connection a building is
being constructed for the dynamos,
engines and machinery of the electric
lighting plant. It will be two stories
high of Buryea stone and will have a
Gothic and slate roof.
Opposite on the east side of the
building an immense round chimney
150 feet in height has been construct-
ed. This chimney has a double case
and has a flue eight feet in diameter.
The lower portion is faced with stone.
The conduit is built of brick. It is
5% ft. wide by 6 ft. high with walls
8 inches thick. The floor is of Port-
land cement and a person can walk
upright through its entire length thus
making repairs easy.
The conduit goes north from tht
boiler-house to the Medical building
thence to the gymnasium, then west tt
the Dental college and Homeopathi
college and on to the Law building an
the museum. After reaching Tappat
hall it extends east again past the lab

The new heating plant whea entirely

The street car hne commenced to
run regularly last Monday morning,
with a full equipment of six motor
cars and two trailers. The line has
been overhauled, and new wire and
generators, together with all the latest
improvements in electrical machinery
put in. The old track will be used,
except that there are two extensions
one of which has already been built
from the fair ground to Packard st.
The other will extend from the present
terminus down Hill st. to East Uni-
versity ave., thence to Monroe down
to State and then to William, thus
naking a loop. When this is com-
pleted cars will run alternately, one
going each way, on a 10 or 12 minute
schedule, thus giving efficient service
to passengers. There are to be two
men to each car, a conductor and
Inotorman, both in full uniform.
The officers of the new company are
F. H. C. Reynolds, of Bangor, Me.,
president; Chas. E. Hiscock, of Ann
. Arbor, secretary, and James Carroll,
superintendent. About five-sixths of
the stock is owned by Maine bankers.
Graduate Club.
s The U. of M. Graduate club of the
Literary department, which organized
e last year with an enrollment of two-
, thirds of the graduates, will continue
o its work this year with J. B. Johnson
c president. Socials, consisting of re-
d freshments and short programs, will
n be held every two weeks at the homes
of the different professors. The aim of
the club is to keep up, as far as possi-
ble, close associations, and college
n spirit among the alumni.

of Princeton, will be here today. Capt.
Baird also came this morning andi all
the candidates are called out to begin

Any new men who intend to try for
the team should get out today.
School of Music.
The indications are that the success
of the school this year will be even
greater than it has been in the past.
It has been the good fortune of the
school to add to its faculty some
names well known in musical circles.
Alberto Jonas, the Spanish pianist, is
a graduate of Brussels Concervatoire.
and a pupil of Gevaert and Ruben-
stein. His fame is well established
over nearly all of Europe and he was
most enthusiastically received on his
first appearance in New York last win-
ter in the concerto of Paderewski.
Miss Charlotte Jaffe, pianoforte and
voice, is a graduate of Hamburg Con-
Mr. Gardner D. Lainson, a pupil of
Georg Henschel, is at the head of the
vocal department. All of the faculty
have arrived and the enrollment is
increasing rapidly.
The first faculty concert will be
given next Thursday evening in

The Harvard Daily News.
We have received the first issue of
the Harvard Daily News, the new
Harvard Daily. This will not con-
flict with the Harvard Crimson, al-
though Harvard will be the only col-
lege in the country publishing two
daily papers. The Daily News will
consist mainly of correspondence from
other universities. C. H. Flandran,
'95, is editor and L. W. Mott, '96, man-
aging editor of the new paper.
