      Mr. Peak submitted the following:

                               Lexington, Ky., May 31, 1898

To the Hon. Board of Trustees of the A. & M. College.

      The undersigned, your committee on Internal Expansion
respectfully report that we met at the college, May 23 and
24 1898 and made as complete an examination as we could
in the time engaged and find that the college is well
managed, disciplined well, and is in a prosperous condition
with largely increased attendance there being four hundred
and fifty scholars now in attendance; but we see no necessity
of enlargement or curtailment of the courses of study at
this time. especially as many of the teachers in some
departments are over worked by reason of the
increased attendance.

      We find that Prof. Mathews has been unable to give
to the Experiment Station (owing to his other duties) time
proportionate to the amount paid out of the government funds.
He is now paid $1100 out of the college funds and $900 out
of Government funds: We therefore recommend an adjustment
of either the time given by Prof. Mathews to the College
and the Station, or the pro rata of salary as now
fixed. As Prof. Mathews is a competent and useful man in the
Station department we think that he should be required to
give half of his time to the Station and that equal parts
of his salary be paid by the college and station respectively,
also that he be allowed an assistant.

      We recommend that new chairs and curtains be furnished
Prof. Scovells office at a cost not exceeding $75.00.

      In V. E. Muncys  eoft* we find there are not desks
and deats suff icient and recommend an appropriation of not
exceeding $75 to furnish same.

      Owing to the growing interest in the Mechanical
Engineering Department and the large number of scholars in
the class in Mathematics in Prof. Whites department, and


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 181

as a thorough practical knowledge of mathematics is necessary
before entering the Mechanical Engineering Dem rtment we would
recommend that $600.00 be allowed Prof. White for the em-
ployment of such assistance as he can procure, until our
financial condition will justify us in giving him an

     We find a large increase in the number of students in
the Mechanical Engineering Department, which department is
growing in interest very rapidly and Prof. F. Paul Anderson
is very energetic and is forging his department to the front
ranks of such work.

      We recommend that $2500.00 instead of $2000.G be
appropriated for the operation of that department, and $700;OO
to repair floor etc. in forge shops. The department is in
need of an office and library room, and an addition to
Mechanical Hall to be used by the Civil, Mechanical and
Electrical departments jointly.

      The cost of these additional buildings is estimated
at $5400.00 which we would cheerfully recommend to be
appropriated if our financial condition would allow it, as
we fear it would not be good policy to order new buildings
with a deficit of $3600.00 now before us; but as soon as our
finances will admit we think these improvements should be
made as we are thoroughly convinced of their urgent necessity.

      We would recommend that during the coming year Miss
M. E. Milikan be permitted to organize m d teach a class in
Phonography in a room in the College Building in the after-
noon so as not to interfere with other studies, and that a


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 182

proper presentation of that department be made in the College

      The tuition to be paid by the members of the class
free of cost to the College. This we think is a very important
branch of study as the use of short-hand and typewriting is
rapidly increasing and such a department will add greatly
to the growing popularity of our college.

      We recommend a appropriation of $500.00 or so much thereof
as may be necessary to complete the upper story of the Natural
Science Building.

                       Respectfully submitted,

                       (Signed)   W. F. Peak
                                   Thomas Todd,

      On motion the foregoing report was received and filed.

      The Committee on Military Instruction and College
Discipline reported as follows:

      " So far as we have been able to form an opinion from
enquiry and observation, we find that the Military department
has been in about the same condition during the last year
as in the years immediately preceding.  During the last
year of an out going officer there is sometimes a visible
letting down in Military discipline in the dormitories and on
the College grounds. The President is anxious that such a
degree of discipline as is indispensable for good. order and
propriety, ard for the proper cultivation of habits of
promptitude, exactness and industry should be maintained
on the college grounds and to this end that existing
regulations should be enforced with a firm but
prudent hand.


MIiTU7.ES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 183

      inasmuch as Capt. Swigert's detail has expired and the
War Department declines at present to detail a successor, we
recommend that the President of the College be authorized
to provide at reasonable compensation for instruction in
drill, Military Science and the superintendence of discipline
in the dormitories and on the college grounds. In conversation
with him be believe that he can make the necessary provision
for this purpose until the War Department sees its way to
provide the Military Instructor.

      We find that the usual course of Military instruction
has been given during the year, and that in recent exhibitions
of skill and proficiency in Military tactics they acquitted
themselves with credit before the State authorities and
the general public.

                                   Thomas Todd

      On motion the report was accepted and approved, and
it was ordered that the President be authorized to carry out
its provisions.

      Mr. Flournoy submitted the following:

To the Board of Trustees:

      Your committee appointed on the minutes of the
Executive Committee report that they have examined said
minutes and find the expenditures therein allowed have been
done as directed. We concur in the change proposed by
the Executive Committee of the student mess system to a
regular boarding system under the plan suggested by
the Committee, but recommend that no contract for
students board be made for a longer term than
one year.



      We approve the employment of lMr. Rhordr and recommend
it be made permanent at the salary of 475O00 per month.

      We further recommend that the proceedings of the
Executive Committee be approved as a whole by the Board.

                 (Signed)          J. C. Floulrno-y
                                   D. F. Frazee

      On motion report received and approved.

      On motion ordered that three fifths of the time of
Prof. Mathews be given to college work and two fifths to
station work, and that three fifths of his salary be paid
by the college and two fifths by the Experiment Station.

      Prof. John Shackleford was elected Vice-President
for the next two years.

      It was stated that-on account of some question of
legality the Business Agent had refused to pay the $200O.0
appropriated on May 31 for the benefit of the Association
of Alumni.


MINUTES OF THE BO.XRD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 185

     Mr. Mathews then moved ' That a mandatory order be
issued here and now to the Business Agent to draw his check
at once for the amount specified.  -    Seconded.

      After remarks by several members of the Board and the
suggestion that the whole matter be left to a committee
composed of Judge Holt, Mr. Flournoy, and Mr. Mathews. M1r.
Peak expressed some doubt as to the propriety of the motion
by Mr. Mathews, and raised a point of order.

      The chair sustained the point of order, Mr. Mathews
appealed from the decision of the chair to the house.

      The decision of the chair was lost by ayes and noes
as follows:

      Aye - Flournoy, Peak, - 2.

      No - Boswell, Frazee, Gooding, Holt, Marcum, Mathews,
Patterson, Stoll - 8.

      The Business Agent was then called in, and after being
assured that he would not be personally responsible for the
result of any illegality connected with the appropriation,
agreed to pay the amount appropriated.

      Mr. Mathews then withdrew his motion.

      Judge Holt now took the chair.

      Messrs. Gooding, Plournoy, and Todd then submitted the
statements which appear on the two following pages.


                  M E M 0 R I A L - P A G E.

      In memory of Judge Thomas H. Hines, who was elected

     Died May 3rd, 1898.


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 188

      Mr. Kennedy submitted the following:
To the Board of Trustees of the A. and VI. College.

      The committee on buildings and grounds beg to report
that they have carefully examined the buildings and grounds
of the college, and find the same in very good condition
except, that natural wear indicates the necessity of trifling
repairs in the steps and plastering of the college building
proper, and in the old dormitory. This last building, too
needs paint, and a more careful supervision of janitors

      The change of location of water closets and bathrooms
in the new dormitory seems very necessary to the committee.
We believe that the best of attention is given these quarters
by the attendant in charge but owing to their situation, the
sanitary conditions must be bad; we, therefore, recommend
that the Business Agent be directed to change same to the
rooms now used as an armory, and tu put in two additional
bath tubs, and to make such changes on the sewer pipes
as may be needed to effect this changes his expenditure not
to exceed, however, $150.00 which is to be taken from the
general fund for repairs and improvements, if same is
available; if not the Executive Committee is directed to
supply any deficiency; and the Business Agent is directed
to use the two rooms just in front of the present Armory
as an Armory, and to make such changes therein as may be
needed for such purpose.



      In this connection we desire to commend the janitor
service at the new dormitory, and we particularly desire
to express our praise of the very excellent care that our
Business Agent bestows on this entire property in all its
details. We cannot forbear to say that his oversight of
the buildings and grounds lack in nothing that the uttermost
care could bestow on his own property.

     We recommend that a new floor be laid in the blacksmith
shop and that a down-blast system of draft be placed at the
forges, provided our funds allow.

     We further recommend that a neat pavilion be built
at the style entrance to the grounds, for protection of
those awaiting the street car, not to cost exceeding $50.00.

     We recommend that the grounds be neatly mown for the
sake of health and neat appearance.

      Lack of means alone prevents us from suggesting all
the improvements set out in the President's report, and we
recommend that the Board make a personal and concerted effort
to obtain an appropriation from the next Legislature for
building purposes.

                 ( Signed)        J. B. Kennedy,
                                   J. C. Flournoy

                                   Stoll, and

      Attention was called to the fact that no report on
Salaries had been submitted and that Gen. Hobson & Mr.

      Mr. Boswell moved that the President be authorized
to compensate cadet officers for the faithful performance
of Military duty.

      No --

      The Committee on the Experiment Station submitted the
following. After changing the salary of Mr. Rhorer from
$65.00 to $75.00 per month.

      " To the Trustees of the A. & M. College.

        Your Committee on the Experiment Station has
investigated its condition and management, and find every-
thing highly satisfactory.

      We believe that the recommendations of the Director
will improve its facilities, and are necessary to its best

      We therefore recommend, that the Board approve the
recommendations of the Director, as follows.

      1 That the funds from the Hatch Act, the income from
the fertilizer control and the pure food bill, and from the
farm, and any interest accruing on these accounts be appropri-
ated for the use of the Station.

      2  That the Committee on purchase of land, Mr. Hart
Boswell and the Director be continued with power to purchase
land for the use of the Station, subject to the approval
of the Executive Committee.

      3 That $2500 be appropriated for a dairy barn, if
in the judgment of the Executive Committee, such funds
be not needed for the purchase of land.


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 1, 1898 - page 193

      4  That Mr. J. N. Harper be elected Agriculturist
for the Station at a salary of $75.00 per month; his
duties to be assigned by and subject to the orders of
the Director.

      5 That the Director be authorized to employ Mr. J. W.
Nutter as a dairyman, at $40.00 per month.

      6 That the services of Mr. Edward Rhorer as stenographer
and secretary to the Director, be continued at $75.00 per

      7 That the Director be authorized employ temporarily, at
a fair renumeration, such additional help as he may require
in the chemical laboratory.

      8 That some readjustment of salary or time of Prof.
Mathews should be made between the college and Station.

      As to minor details we believe that repairs and
painting on some of the buildings at the college farm are
necessary,but as such work is already being done by
