A Boston paper chides the college papers of Harvard and Yale for the supposed part they have taken in the recent prolonged negotiations for a race between the two colleges. This charge we consider it a duty to ourselves and (if we are permitted) to our esteemed contemporaries, to deny. To the best of our belief far more, proportionately, has appeared in the public press in the way of announcement and more or less partisan comment on the proceedings than in any of the college papers. Indeed, it has been principally the outside press which, with perverted enterprise, has perpetually dragged the matter into publicity, both in and out of season. The public, of course, has a decided interest in learning the final outcome of the discussion, but they have no claim to learn more than this. The impertinent comments on the matter that have appeared from time to time in the daily press have derived a manifest absurdity from their impertinence. It is a matter of congratulation that in the future opportunities for publicity of this sort are not likely to arise.
