The University Senate resumed at ten o'clock yesterday, the Chancellor, Sir James Hector, being in the ..chair., CONDUCT OF EXAMDIATIONS. The Committee on the Conduct <of Ex-' uninations reported that the Chancellor's action in appointing Napier an examination centre for the last November examinations 1w approved, but the committee saw no necessity for including it in the list of permanent centres. With respect to the case of dishonesty referred to in the 13tn clause of the Chancellor's address, the Committee was satisfied of the candidate's guilt, and recommended that he be disqualified from sitting at any examination for a term expiring on the day before the commencement of the December examinations, 1904. The Committee . also recommended that, in order to moke clear to candidates the serious consequences of dishonest practices at examinations, the statute "Conduct of Examinations", be amended by adding the following clatlse: —"Any candidate who is guilty of any dishonest practice in connection with any examination shall be liable to disqualification for such period as the Senate determines." In order to ensure decorum of dress and conduct at examinations, the Committee also recommended that the same Statute be amended by adding the following clause: — "Every candidate shall appear in the examination room dressed as becomes a student of the University, and shall conduct himself in a decent and orderly manner. The supervisor may decline to receive the answers of any candidate who fails to 'satisfy him in this respect." * Upon the motion of Professor Cook, it was decided to extend the term of disqualification of the matriculation student till 1905.
