$20,000,000. His widow has since increased the amount of endowment, and in 1899 it represented a total of $45,000,000. The buildings were constructed without regard to their cost, and are nowhere surpassed in beauty and fitness. Many of them are of yellow sandstone, and the Moorish style of architecture has been followed in their construction. The courses of instruction embrace almost every department of study imaginable, and provide a complete system of education from the kindergarten to the postgraduate course. There are not only schools of agriculture, machine-shops, and laboratories for the study of the applied sciences, but there are colleges of art, of law, of medicine, and of music. The first president of the institution was Dr. David S. Jordan, formerly president of the State University of Indiana. At the close of the school year 1900 the university had 131 professors and instructors; 1,400 students in all departments; 45,000 volumes in its library; and 1,099 graduates.

about giving them good government and that they are better off than they ever were under Spain, I feel very much as if I had learned that my father or some other honoured ancestor had been a slave trader in his time and had boasted that he had introduced a new and easier kind of handcuffs or fetters to be worn by the slaves during the horrors of the middle passage. Co-operating with this group were Samuel Gompers, the labour leader, Edward Atkinson, statistician, Professor Sumner, David Starr Jordan, President of Leland Stanford University, and Andrew Carnegie. As an organ for propaganda the New England Anti-Imperialistic League was formed at Boston in 1899, and about one hundred subsidiary branches were established. A notable episode was the exclusion from the mails by the postmaster at San Francisco of three pamphlets addressed to members of the Philippine Commission, written by Edward Atkinson. These were entitled The cost of a national crime, The hell of War and its Penalti
