Last night about seventy men assembled in Sever 11 to listen to the Harvard Union debate on "Resolved, That the Republican party has outlived its usefulness." The principal disputants were: Messrs. Lloyd, '83, and E. A. Hubbard, '84, for the affirmative; Foss, '85, and Merriam, '86, for the negative. The affirmative claimed that the party should cease to exist, since it had fallen completely into the hands of demagogues. The negative gave an able review of the good work done by the party in the past, and claimed that it could and would continue in its labors. Messrs. Barnes, Jones, Saunders, Hayes, McDuffee, Carrier and Hoar made remarks from the house. The question was decided in the affirmative.
The subject for the next debate is, "Resolved, That suffrage in the United States should be limited by an educational qualification."
