The Board of Regen ts of the University held their annual meeting this week and transacted considerable important business, every member beins; present. The principal matter under discu&sion was the fight in the medical faculty and what course to pursue to quiet the dissension which has beea going on for years. In all the talk before the board for several sesaions there has been a growing sentiment that it must be stopped at all costs. At this meeting that sentiment took form in the shape of a resolution which passed unanimously, in effect bouncing Drs. Maclean and Frothingham from the medical faculty. The reaolution states that the action of these two men in opposiog the plans and interests of the regenta has not been consistent, and states that the board in now prepared to accept their resignations. Tbe regents mean business this time, and unless their resignations are handed in bsfore the regenta' meeting, J uly 17, they will be fired. The belief of the two doctors that the university clinical department should be removed to Detroit is, of course, the root of the trouble, but that particular point ia not dwelt upon by the regenta with so munh forcé as is the fact that Maclean and Frothineham do not harmonizewith the university management any longer. The question referred to them by the medical faculty regarding the graduation of Corydon L. Ford, the student who signed the famoua circular denouncing Drs. Herdman, Vaughan and Obetzasmountebanks, also carne up aud was promptly disposed ot by the regents, they retusing to grant him a diploma. The degrees were conferred upon the graduates as recommended by the different faculties. The most important appointments were: Prof. Francia L. Kelsey, of Lake Fore9t University, to succeed the late Prof. Elieha Jones a8 professor of Latin; Jerome C. Knowlton as Marshal professor of law; Jacob F. Reighard as assistant professor of zoology.

The appointments in the medical department were postponed until the next meeting, July 17. The medical committee reported that after July 1, 1890, all students entering the medical department must complete tour years of professional study before graduation. The law faculty asked the regents to give them a three years' course, and confer two degrees in that department but the regenta postponed action on this. A course was provided leading to the conconferring of the B. S. degree in electrical engineering. The committees were authorized to expend such money as was appropriated for them, and to build the addition to the chemical laboratory. No decisión was reached upon the site for the new hospital, although several propositions were made to the board. Action will be taken at the next meeting. After transacting business of minor importance, the board adjourned.
