In these colleges, he said, are being trained the future electors and law-makers of our commonwealth; they will be in large measure what they are made by the education or by the ignorance which she fosters; does it not therefore behoove her to see that they are fitted for the high positions they are to fill? As a country keeps troops drilled, and furnished with the necessary equipments for carrying on war, so she will also, if she is wise, keep her young people mentally trained and equipped for the equally important service at the polls and in the senate-halls. She can better afford an inex perienced army in time of war than an inefficient government and administration both in war and peace. Such, in brief, was the line of argument presented; it certainly furnishes food for reflection to thoughtful minds. As students of this State University, we have been taught respect and gratitude to the people of Dakota for their generosity in establishing and so liberally endowing this institution. If Dakota has by this course best conserved her own interests — if whatever she does for her young men and women shall presently redound to her own glory — we are none the less grateful for her favors. The wonderful growth and improvement of the U. of D. speak well for the future interest her benefactors shall receive from their capital; nor is the time far distant when she shall be able, in the person of her alumni, to fully repay the people of Dakota for the efforts they have put forth in her behalf. ---------------------- There appears to be an impression abroad among certain misinformed classes of people that the reputation and influence of this University are decidedly local in extent and confined to Vermillion and Clay Co. That this is a false impression is clearly manifested by the marvelous growth and prosperity of the institution within the last two years. The proportion of students from other parts of the Territory has during that time increased from 10 per cent. to 56 per cent. Thirty counties are already represented. Nor is the source of its supply confined to Dakota; its reputation has gone abroad and over 75 students hail from eight different states.
