Eening News Agitating the Ques-
The Detroit Evenieg News is still
keeping up its warfare against the
permanent location of the U. of M.
at Ann Arbor, and continues advo-
cating its removal to Detroit. The
only solace which it holds out for
Ann Arbor in case this is done is that
possibly a great Normal school can
utilize the buildings on the campus-.
The following is the News' edi-
In no way could the bicentenary
of our beautiful city be celebrated
more easily or with greater effect
than by the removal hither of the
University of Michigan. It could
be done easily, because the $3,000,-
000 which would probably be needed
to accomplish it could be raised by
au issue of city bonds, the paymentt
of which would be distributed
through a series of years and would
be but little felt by the taxpayers.
Meanwhile it would add 3,000 or
more persons to our population to be
fed, clothed and amused, none of
whom would come at all in competi-
tion with bread-winners already here.
But there are higher reasons why
we should aspire to it. Nothing can
make a city more famous than the
possession of a great university. Ox-
ford and Cambridge never would be
heard of but for their famous insti
tutions of learning, and so of many
other places-New Haven, Ithaca,
Cambridge, Mass., and our own Ann
Arbor. Universities bring the cities
possessing them closely in touch withi
the whole world. No doubt, too,
they tend to raise the intellectual
tone of the conimunity
Another great benefit it would be
to our city would be its affording an
object about which our wealthy peo-
ple could center their pride and
liberality, for without a doubt a
broad spirit of liberality would be in-
cited ly the possessot of an itit"-
tion of world-wide fame-.
The university would be the gainer
because it would enjoy larger means,
draw an increased number of stu-
dents and have the benefit of the ad-
vantages which a great city would
give, to say nothing of the advantages
afforded for acquatic sports, whicht
enter so largely into university life.
The state of Milhigant wouldl le
benefitedbecatse it would receiva, as
a gift, not only the new and commo-
dious plant the city would provide,
but also a handsome endowment fund,
which would by so much relieve the
taxpayers of the state at large.
Ann _Arbor need not necessarily
suffer by the transfer, for the state
would still hold property there avail-
able for some other education insti-
tution --perhaps a great normal
It is well known that some of the
professors would heartily favor the
removal as a step forward in the
building up of the institution, but
naturally they do not wish their
names to be made public.

Manager Lieseiter of the opera
house had announced Saturday's
performance as a strictly "studentt
night,'' one evening in which the
students could have as nmuch fun
and make as much noise as they
wished, and nothing would be done
to prevent the good time. Nothing
beyond the making of a great deal
of noise occurred during the entire
evening. Toward the middle of the
second act Manager Lieseiter, be-
lieving the performance was going
beyond the bounds of decency,
caused the curtain to be rung down.
This closed the performance.
Afterwards a number of students
became engaged in an altercation
with some of the stage hands near
the stage entrance. Stoies were
thrown and several windows brokent
including the large plate glass one in
front of the Times office. The po.
lice took a hand and arrested three
students although it is very doubtful
if they secured the real authors of
the trouble. The boys were released
early Sunday morning upon promis-
ing to pay for the damage done,
which will a.nount to about $50.
Manager Liesetter when seen last
" have had so little trouble and dis-
turbance in the ohera house this year
that I determined to give the boys
one night in which they could do as
they wished, providing of course
that no rough conduct took place.
They were allowed to make as mucht
noise as they pleased and no attempt
was made to stop them. I have no
fault to find with the conduct of
those present and saw nothing thatt
eeut beyond the bounds of the gen
ertal dectirumi swlichm tas observed. I
hope that the boys will appreciate
my good feeling towards them and
endeavor to reciprocate by observing
good order at future performances."
