Ever since the split in the Lecture Association last spring, caused by the attempts of both lits and laws to hold supremacy in the attairs of the association, the final outcome of the dispute has been the subject of much speculation, and even of some concern, lest a final disruption of the association might result. The rival boards then chosen have been unwearying in their efforts to secure lecturers for the coming season, and were apparently determined to fight it though to a final issue. The refusal of the university authorities to permit either faction to use University Hall, however, put the matter in a new light and brought both organizations to see the necessity of a compromise. This compromise was effected Monday afternoon.when committeesfrom either side met President Angelí, and arranged a settleinent satisfactory to all. As bütli courses could not be given in f uil, selections were made from the leading attractions, as convenierice of dates would permit. The literary departmnt course retains Prof. Von Holst, Hon Jerry Simpson, Hon. Roger Q. Milis, Rev. F. W. Gunsaulus, Hon. Frederick Douglass, and Hon. John J. Ingalls, while the law department course contributes its share with Riley and Shirley, Marteau the vioinist, the New York Philharmonic Club, and John T. Graves. The course will be opened Üct. 19, by Hon. Frederick Douglass, the noted colored orator, who will present his views on "The Race Problem." He will be followed on üct 27, by Riley and Shirley in one of their characteristic entertainments. Hon. Jerry Simpson, the Kansas statesman, will be here Nov. 10. His subject will be, "Some of the Causes of the Decline in Agriculture." The next lecture will be by John Temple Graves, on Nov. 18. In December two especially fine attractions will be here, on the 8th, Marteau, the great French violinist; on the ióth, Prof. Herman Von Holst, of .Chicago University, who will lecture on " Toussaint L'Ouverture."
