Twoenty Men and Coaches Left Last
Night for Illinois.
In 'spite of the inclemency of the
weather some 250 students turned out
last night to give the team a send off
for the game with Illinois Saturday.
They were reported to leave on the 9:43
train and the crowd began to show up
about a half hour before that time.
With much cheering and yelling they
routed out Captain Steckle f om where
he had already found rest in the special
sleeping car, "Waterloo". He was
modest in the claims he made for his
team and spoke feelingly of the large
number of cripples among the men.
He thinks we will win though he is
backward in predicting a large score.
More of the men were called for but
they had all reti ed and it was not
until aftfr much yelling and persuasion
on the part of the crowd that "Pa"
Henninger made his appearance. He
too did not make claims of a great vic-
tory but expressed himself as thinking
we will win. In regard to the name of
the special car "Waterloo" he said that
when the team rolls into Champaign
tomorrow night "Illinois will meet he,
A little more persuasion brought
Director Baird on the platform. He
said that every man on the team was
in the game to win and with such a
send off as the boys were giving them
would win. His remarks were cut
short by the appearance of the west
bound train which cut off the crowd
from the special. Immediately after-
ward the eastern express came in and
occupied the front rank. Each in turn
was greeted with the old U. of M. yell
and "Who Can."
On the last train to pull in was a
gentleman of an inquisitive turn of
mind who came out on the platform to
see what it was all about. He found
out and before the crowd would re-
lease him rose nobly to the occassion
and offered a toast to Michigan "12 to
0", he declared, " will be too low a
score but it will be at least that." And
laterafter the burst of applause had
subsided to some extent waving his
hat in the breeze he shouted "You're
going to Champaign and she will have
a pain when you are through with
her." And the train pulled out and the
crowd yelled some more for the edifii-
cation of the passengers on the one re-

Steckle, whose knee and side a e sti.1
in bad shape from the wrenchings re-
ceived in practice and Snow, who has
been on the sick list the past two or
three days.
The initial line-up Saturday aftr-
noon wili be as follows: Cunningham,
center; Kramer and Seigmund, guards;
McDonald and Juttner, tackles; Snow
and Her.ns ein, halves; and Keena,
full. Almost a whole team is 'e-
ing taken in addition to these men
and there will be no hesitancy in
changing the men about after the first
line-up should the condiiton of affairs
demand it. As stated yesterday in The
Daily, 'Heffinger of Yale, and Brown
of Cornell, will be the referee and um-

its most briliant and outspoken defend-

Iowa has a way of telling things that

Prof. W.LW. Campbell has Established
this Without a Doubt.
Oe of the most curious discoveries of
astronomical science has just been
made by Prof. W. W. Campbell, son of
William Campbell, of Pittsfield. Prof.
Campbell graduated from the U. of M.
in 1586 and was for a time instructor
in astronomy at the University here.
He afterwards was made director of
the Lick Observatory of Califronia and
it was with that telescope that he has
made a discovery that makes his fame
His discovery is that the North Star
is not one star, but thee.
This star, which is 5,000,000,000 miles
away from the earth, has been one of
the most familiar objects in the fir-
mament since the beginning of crea-
tion, and yet its true nature was not
even suspected until the other day.
The North Star is one of the most bril-
iantly beautiful in color and is the star
which the children are first taught to
distinguish. It points constantly to
the North Pole of the earth and has
been of more aid to navigators and
travelers in unknown regions than ay
other cefestial body which illuminates
the night.
It was by means of the spectroscope
attached to the great thirty six-inch
refracting telescope at the Lick Obser-
vatory that the existence of two com-
panions of the North Star was dis-
cove.ed the other day. Only one star
is visible to the eIe, even with the
greatest telescopes, but the spectos-
cope reveals the existence of two others
with mathematical accuracy. The
spectoscope is an instrument which
seperates light into its component col-
ors. When the light from the North
Star was examined in the spectroscope
attached to the Lick telescope the other
day changes in the lines of color were
observed which could only be account-
ed for by the fact that there were other
bodies pesent. From this point it was
only a matter of mathematics to cal-
culate their number, position and
The North Star, which is called by
astronomers Polaris is really a grat
sun. It is accompanied by two invis-
ible stars just discovered by the spec-
troscope. One of these revolves about
Polaris, just as the earth and moon
do around the sun. It is calculated
that it requires four years for the two
invisible bodies to revolve around Po-
laris. The year there is four times
longer than ours. The bright Polaris
rovovas on its axis once in four years.
Polaris is approaching the solarsys-
tem at a varying rate which has reach-
ed as high as 16 miles a second. The
variation is due to the attraction of
the two bodies upon the third. This
was another fact which proved to the
astronomers the right nature of the
Philosophical Societi.
Dr. Rebec addressed the philosophical
society yesterday on "The Heart of
Modemo Life"-A Criticism of Hegelian
Optimism. The speaker before entering
directly upon his criticism gave a ret-
rospective view of philosophy. He said
the Greek philosophers sought truth
but depended entirely upon the ability
of their reason. Their logic was their
strong point. Modern christianity
seeks to escape the world. Its vital
concern is with the church which
brings it into communication with
heaven. All writers agree that mod-
ern life represents a return to nature.

maining train. That pulled out shortly
leaving the "Waterloo" behind. Man-
ager Baird then made his second ap-
pearance and stated that it had been
decided to wait for the later train that


the men might rest better. He asked
the crowd to consider that they had
gone and thanked them for the send-
off, but to yell once more and let the
men go to sleep. With one last rousing
cheer the mob started toward the cam-
pus and left the men to their first trip
of the season. '99.
The party consisted of the following
players: Cunningham and Larsen,

YM centers; Kramer, Barkabus and Seig-
mund, guards; Steckle, capt.; McDon-
SUITS ald, Juttner and Wilson, tackles;
Snow, Gill and Martin, ends; Street and'
Fitzgerald, quarter-backs; McLean,

as to leave no doubt of his conviction.
For a long term of years he has rep-
resented Iowa in Congress, and his
strength has been acknowledged in that
body by the position he holds upon the
great co mittee of ways and means,
and it is not too much to expect that
he will soon be at the head of that
committee and the framer of the ta-iff
of the United States.
Mr. Dolliver has chosen the subject,
"The Nation of America," a subject of
great breadth and one which will allow
his eloquence to flow unhampered. He
may be expected to furnish both en-
tertainment and food for reflection.
The recorded circulation in the gen-
eral library for the college year of 1898-
99 was 137,365 and the number of vol-
umes drawn by members of the facul-
ties for home use, 3,200-a total of 145,-
565. This is an increase of about 2 >er
cent over the previous year. The daily
average attendance in the reading
room was 170. Of these, 90 or 53 per
cent, were men and 80,-or 47 per cent,
were women. The number of students
admitted to the seminary rooms was
428 for the entire year 80 of these to
the east room and 330 to the west. The
number given permission to work in
the bookroom was 75.
