Ex-President Grover Cleveland wil] visit Ann Arbor, Pebruary 22, and will deliver the annual Washington birfchday addressbefore the lavv department. There is no man in the United States who ean draw a largei audience in Ann Arbor tbaii Grover Cleveland and University Hall will not be large enough to accommodate all who wish tobear him. Arrangemetits will undoubtedly be made, however, so that all can see the great ex-President. These arrangements have not vet been perfected so that the details cannot be at present given. Mr. Cleveland comes on the invitation of the senior law class extended tbrough its comniittee and also on the nvitation of President Angelí, Judge Coole3T and one or tvvo prominent demócrata of the state. The invitation has not yet been formally accepted but he has said that he would come and as soon as Mr. weveiana returns trom JUmisiana a formal acceptance will without doubt be received by the committee, ïhis is Mr. Cleveland's first visit to Michigan and lie will be given a warm and enthusiastic reception. The hall where he speaks is the largest in Michigan and sorne 3,500 to 4,000 people can be crovvded hito it. Delegations will be here from Detroit and from many surrouuding towns and villages, wliile from the expressions heard from many farmers, we judge the city will be crowded with farmers who desire to see the great ex-president. Mr, Cleveland has so many invitation extended to him from all parts of the country and there issuch a demasd mude upon his time tliat lus acceptance oí' the invitatioii here for Wasliington's birthday is a great compliment to the University. Tliis is the third time Mr. Cleveland lias been invited to Ann Arbor, the other times being at the senii-centennial and Washington's birthday in 1889, but on these previous occasions he was unable to accept the invitations. The occasion is strictly without politics. The last ex-president of the United States will speak on the auniversary of the birth of the lirM president. It is Htting, therefore. that the city government should extend ! to America" distinguished citizen the freedom of the city, b.v a non-partisau vote of the council.
