Charge* A c ->l,.«t Pr-glden t Stratton— H« la Kzi>ner>t«<l. Since last January [lie management of Mills Seminary lias not been conducted with complete Harmony between the President, Dr. C. C. Strat ton, ana the lady teachers, and this fact becama publicly known yesterday. Tb« trouble was commenced by charges made against the con dnct of Dr. Slrattou while discharging the du ties of his position. The Doctor at once de manded an investigation, but all Inquiries mads by the Trustees in the matter were met with re luctaut responses. Then a committee of three persons was ap pointed, to meet on Kfbiuury loth and hear the accusations from those who had made them. The- committee repotted to the Trustees that the result of the investigation did not reflect la any manner upon the conduct of the President. • The '1 ruslees held several meeting* subse quently, and about two weeks ago, at a meeting or the board, there being absent but two mem bers— Mills and James (J. Fair— fol lowing resolution was unanimously adopted: WEnuua. Urowlug out of serious and perplexing misunderstanding in the. college, certain charges and counter-charges affect In;; the personal and pro fessional standing of Dr. U. C. Stratton, and of other members of the faculty, have Been iiroiwut to tha attention of the board: anil whereas, these chimes nave, in the presence or a full board, keen patiently and carefully considered, HesoivtJ, That in our judgment It Is neither needful nor wise that the said charges should be entertained. . It is therefore ordered that all proceedings con nected with the aforesaid matters be, ana the same are hereby dismissed, and the personal ana official standing of all persons connected with the Institu tion shall remain as before these proceedings wera begun. An 1 we recommend to all parties In any ' wise connected with the aforesaid differences that they shall, as far as In them lies, lay aside all feel- Ings of animosity and work together In a spirit of harmony and forbearance and of loyalty to Mills College, remembering that the welfare of the col lege and the work connected therewith Is of far greater consequence than all possible Questions of precedency or official dignity. Dr. str.titon was Interviewed by a reporter or The Call, last night. He denied most emphati cally that he had transceuded his position as President of the collect- lv any manner what ever. He positively denied the chaises roads public ugaiust him, and at the same time as serted his determination to say nothing which, would be detrimental to Mills College or the teachers connected therewith. Referring to tno accusation that he had entered a teacher's sle*" lug apartment several limes at a late hour to usa the telephone lv that room, the Doctor said ha had never been lv that chamber at an Improper hour, and. furthermore, he had always deslied and requested In vain that the telephone ba removed to a more public ana convenient place.
