The day passed off quietly in town, with the greater part of the ballots cast early In the day. The most noticeable feature was the presence of women working for the Sixth Amendment, and they did not leave the field until after the count was completed. The McKinley Club had arranged to give the returns at Nortruo Hall, a telegraph wire having been extended to that point and an operator secured.

Beard was found dead at her home at College Terrace last evening. Dr. Beard, her husband, left home at one o'clock, and when he returned about dark, he found her lying on the floor of her bedroom, dead. Mrs. Beard had been in delicate health for some time und was afflicted with melancholia. She had been taking laudanum to alleviate heart trouble, and whether death was caused by natural causes or from an overdose of laudanum taken either through mistake or Biiicldai Intent Is uncertain. The coroner is holding an Inquest this afternoon. The family, until "about one month ago, lived in the Perry building on University-avenue. The deceased was the mother of three- children, the youngest of which was born less than two months ago. We would urge that the Town-Trustees prohibit the placing of electric light poles on University avenue. Let tbem be put on side avenues, and thus prevent our main street from being defaced by them. Incomplete returns Indicate the defeat of the Sixth Amendment. both sexee, with the colleges, schools, seminaries of learning, mechanical institutes, museums, galleries of ar't.'iiiid other things necessary and appropriate to a university jof high degree." Its object is "to qualify students for personal success and direct usefulness in life." Its purposes are -'to promote the public welfare by exercising an influence in bo- j half of humanity and civilization, teach - ■ ing the blessings of liberty regulated by ' law, and inculcating love and reverence ! for the great principles of government ' as derived from the inalienable rights | of man to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." That the University is so endowed as to be able fully to carry out the designs of the founders cannot be gainsaid. It owns the Palo Alto estate of 8,400 acres of choice land, upon which the University is located; 58,000 acres in Tehama county, known as the Vina estate, and 22,000 acres In Butte county at Gridley. By the will of Senator Stanford, a bequest of two and one-half million dollars waemade, .and this was paid to the trustees some months ago. Mrs. Stanford makes the advancement of the University her one great object In life, and devotes much of her private means to that end. With such a vast endowment at their command the * . • men in charge of the University will not be hampered in the work of making the institution all that It has been designed to be. *. The location is especially advantageous. ' The Santa Clara valley poss- sesses in a marked degree all the particular advantages of California's perfect climate, attractive scenery and great fertility, There are no extremes of temperature, at any season Of the year, the mercury rarely falling below 30 degrees in winter, and averaging 75 to 80 degrees in summer, The nights are always cool, the rainfall is well distrlbu- ' over the winter months and at no time causes unpleasant conditions. Thus a high degree of healthfulness is the natural result. The University buildings are of the California Mission style, which Is allied to the Moorish, being one-story and so i arranged as to provide for indefinite expansion, arseriarvf quadrangles being arranged to be erected,, as the needs of the University demand. Surrounding ' the quadrangles will be detached buildings for miscellaneous purposes. The central group of buildings will constitute two quadrangles, of which the Inner quadrangle is now comploted, except the chapel. Facing this court, which is three and three-quarters acres In extent, are twelve one-story buildings of buff sandstone. Six smaller quadrangles will exist when the buildings shall have been completed. Kn- cina und Ruble Hulls, the two Gymnasiums, tho museum und und other buildings have already deen erected und 'other buildings will lie constructed us fust us the means ut hund und the requirements of tho University demand; Tho library already numbers thirty thousand volumes und ten thousand pamphlets. The museum contains a» varied collection oflntorosting articles.... of virtu, made up of smaller collections donated by different persons. Tho Hopkins Laboratory of Natural History, located at Pacific Grove, is u branch of tho biological work of the University, The Faculty Is made up of over one hundred members,- each of.whom has mude a reputation In his particular branch of work. David Starr Jordan, the president, is doubtless the leading scientist of America, and under his wise guidance Stanford is attaining a high rank among insltutions of learning. Tuition in all departments of the University is free, tho only charge being a registration fee of ten dollars per semester for regular students and fifteen dollars for special students.. It is estimated that the expenses of a student, exclusive of clothing and railway fares, need not exceed $225 to $300 pe'r - year. There are many students who, In whole or In part, earn thclrexponscs, although no direct pecuniary assistance for such has as yet been arranged by tho University. The student who works to pay his way is treated with the same degree of respect as tho one who has . plenty of money. It will be readily seen that, under these favorable conditions, the future of the University is assured and that It is destined to rank among the greatest institutions of the world. In this connection, It is equally certain that Palo Alto has In store a growth and- prosperity that will make It ope of the lending interior towns of Central California. The town Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting to-night. A. N. Nicholds will wheel J. F. Parkinson eighteen blocks Saturday afternoon at two o'clock. Get out and see the fun.
