collector of customs ut Newport

Lee's birthday.
The resolution considerably surprised
southern democratic statesmen
and probably many on the republican
side of the chamber. It
wna such an unexpected waving ot
the red flag that it astounded everybody,
particularly in view of the light
it shed 011 Senator H?yburn's aspvr

Benedict ArnoldB in thatt spuecii became
miplcuKaiHly significant.
In Ilia speech Monday on tho accoptance
of tho statue of George L.
Shoup, presented by the state of Idaho,
H<'iiator Heyburn asked if It wore
the intention of congress in passing
the act of July H, mt>4, to provide that
any traitor should ever have a place
in statuary hall, or that a Benedict
Arnold should ever be ho honored".' lie
held that no statue was of rig/it in
the hall unless accepted by congress.
aonuvoi Money OT MiBBUHippi, 111
Kpeakiug of lleyburn'8 address after
tho Henatc adjourned, Bald:
"It Is Ptrange to me that hero f>0
yearn after the war, a man who never
heard a gun fired should make such n
spectacular exhibition of EectKmal
venom. Even Mb own colloagueH will
condemn him. Nobody would havo
done ho more quickly than that great
Koldier and magnnnlmoun man, <;?meral
Cirant, During; several weeka
spent with (J<?n<*ral (Jrant at a hotel
in Mexico ho frequently spoke of lx-e j
in tho highest terms of admiration. 1 I
hope Senator lleyburp will not pur
mi! iiio iinwiHo ciJiirnu iuruiur, uui lei
tliis matter drop."
Since the opposition to the acceptance
of the I,oe stutue by congress?
has developed, there haB been conslderablo
talk of not Insisting upon
tliis mere formality. The Btatue 1b
already set up in Btatuary hull.
Asked ii he tuought the usual cere- 1
monies would be dinpensed with In
tliis ease, Senator Money Bald:
"Hather than have a statue of General
Leo sneaked into statuary hull, '
1 think no means should be Bpared
to make the ceremonies of acceptance
the most elaborate and impressive of
any over held. No man whose statue '
now stands in the hall deaerveB more j
praise tor his noble qualities us a '
in.ill a soldier liliil n ("lirf ft. lun ('.en.

I greatly admired General Slioup,

Bt'ilo of Idaho. Had 1 been able to
spare the time to prvpare It, 1 would |
have delivered a tribute to his lncinory.

in bis present course, I favor having
