WILDE'S WELCOME IN ROCHESTER

ROCHESTER, Feb 8th--A hundred students of the Rochester university created great disturbance at Oscar Wilde's lecture here last night.  A policeman attempted to eject a disturber, when a melee ensued and the gas was turned off.  Before additional policeman (sic) arrived most of the students had left. Only a few people remained till the conclusion of the lecture.
