The Cambridge Conferences.
Last week, Dr. Lewis G. Janes, the director of the conferences, read a valuable paper on an interesting but little known pioneer and philosopher of the Colonial era, Samuel Gorton, the first settler of Warwick, R. I. The paper was largely the product of original research in unpublished manuscripts. The remaining lectures on Wednesdays during February will be given as follows:
Feb. 10-Rev. Samuel M. Crothers, "Shelley and the Spirit of Revolt."
Feb. 17-Herbert Ernest Cushman of the Harvard Graduate School, "Casuistry; a Study in Ethics."
Feb. 24-Frank Russell of the Peabody Museum, "Social Life and Customs of the Athabascan Indians."
The paper of Mr. Russell will be the result of original studies made during an extended residence among the Indians in the region of the Great Slave Lake.
