TIESSETTLE THE QUESTION.
Tin 1 members of the Lysian, G.
F. O. and Ciceronian societies of
Gordon Institute, with colors fly
ing, were out in full force at the
auditorium Thursday evening Inst
as well as many of their friends
to hear the debate, which had
been arranged to take place at
The following was the question
“Resolved, ‘That the United
States Should Withdraw Entirely
From Cuba, and Leave the Cuban
People to Work Out Their Own
Freedom Without Interference.”
The Lysian society was repre
sented by Messrs. Walter Marsh
burn, Warren Woodward and
James Kelley, for the affirmative.
The other two societies were rep
resented by Messrs. Bolton, Cook
and Autrey, for the negative.
From start to finish it was ex
ceedly good, all of the boys ac
quitting themselves with credit.
Mr. Bolton, however, captured
the audience and the honors. His
first speech was good, presenting
splendid argument with plenty of
spirit. His closing effort, being a
reply and somewhat impromptu,
swept the audience off its feet,
and lie was quite vigorously ap
plauded. When the judges, Revs.
W. R. Branlmm. F. R. Graves
and C. W. Durden announced that
the negatives had won, the ap
plause approved the decision. All
of the speakers were highly com
plimented on their efforts.
The music pupils of the Insti
tute furnished a number of pieces
which added much to the pleasure
of the evening.
