MEETINGS OF THE BQAltD OF TRUSTEES.
S E P T E M B E R 23,
The Board of Trustees met at the University, at 4 o'clock, P. M. The President, Mr. Cobb, in the chair. Present—Messrs. Brown, Boyd, Blackburn, Gardner, Salim, and Mason. Absent—Gov. Beveridge, Messrs. Pickrell, Slade, and Eeynolds. Dr. Gregory, the Regent, informally addressed the Board in regard to his connection with the University. He cheerfully accepted the conditions of the new law, believing that the duties of Regent of the University and President of the Board should be separated. He regretted that complete freedom in choice of studies had been chauged by the law, regarding the change to be contrary to the spirit of American Institutions. He stated that some 400 students were present in the University, expecting the number would be increased to 500 before the close of the term; that the reputation of the University was not merely local, but equal to that of some of the leading institutions of the Old World. By vote of the Board, Dr. Gregory was requested to reduce his remarks to writing, for publication. Mr. Cobb replied that it was expected and desired that the Regent would be present at all meetings of the Board, etc. The reading of the minutes of the last meeting was dispensed with. The following bills were audited and allowed:
