It is announced that Yale has chosen the negative of the question selected for the Yale-Princeton Debate. "Resolved; That it would be wise to establish in respect of all state legislation of a general character, a system of referendum similar to that established in Switzerland." The interpretation of the question is as follows: "State legislation," refers to an enactment by a State legislature; "of a general character" means affecting general as distinct from particular interests, and does not necessarily refer to geographical application.
