Wells; Regent Biiffleld, VanRiper, Sliearer, Norris and Grosvenor ; Professors Frieze, Winchell, D'Ooge, Wilson, Pettee, Palmer, and others. After musicby Spiel and prayer by Rev. Steele, the class and those present were addressed by Prof. William P. Wells, on the " Relation of Lawyers to the Reform of the Laws," arguing from incidents of history that reforms of the laws must be made by lawyers. The address was well received, and at its close the speaker received a handsome basket of flowers, presen ted by the class. After another musical selection the degree of Bachelor of Laws was conferred upon 154 gradĂșate?, by which act their connection with the University was dissolved, and tbey were sent forth into the world well equipped for its struggles. A feature of the exercises especially worthy of notice.was the music furnished by Spiel's orchestra, öeveral novelties were introduced, and it certainly seems as thoujrh it is getting much better every year.
