A gemtlejnaa has proposed to the trustees oí Columbiu iuiil of the University 'ol the City of New York offering a largc ondo'wment lor a common building fund, should the two institutions lie Consolidated. Already the univcr■sity ccmncil ha-s considei-ed the matter na far as to appoiat a committee to confer wiek any similar committee wliich might be appointed by Colnmbia's trustees. The plan is likely, therefore, to engage the interest of the governing boards and the alumni of both institutions, and the inore it is disenssed the more practicable it will appear. New York should be the seat of the greatest and most complete university of tlüs country, as it i-s the commercial capital umi tla.] center.

The University oí the City of New York has the title, and Columbia has the momey and the prestige, but ïieither has the students, nor do the Students ol either have the Indescribable "esprit du corps," the "college spirit," whlch characterizes and perïneatee the student body of country colleges, ;uid whlch is almost inseparable f rom tlie dorraitory system. Créate ia dormltory tsystem, somewhat removed from the din and bustle of the tity, foster the college spirit, use the ïnatchless endowment of Columbia to tprect suitable buildings, and not only will tilue Btudents who aiow go irom New York to other colleges stay at home, but studente -will be drawn hither from all over the country."
