General Uoynton lias suggested that
tlio Army of the Cuiubcilnnil erect n
ptatno to the Into Samuel J. Randall.
3lr. Itamlall did not servo wltli that
aimy, but while with his troop In tho
three months' service he did writo a
letter to his personal fileml, Thomas A,
S?cott, then Assistant Sccictary of War,
sufgcstliiff the promotion of Colonel
Thomas to u biigadlcrshlp, General
Tliomns being afterward a commnndor
hf the Army of the Cumberland.
General Uoynton 's speclllc proposi
tion is thnt the etntuo bo an equestrian
one, and that 3Ir. Kendall be put for
ward as the typical repiesentattvo of
the Ainciicnn privato soldier. There
t'rnilil certainly be none better, so f.ir
as tho man goes. But !Ir. Ilamlall's
service was so short and so devoid of
incident, as it seems to us, as to give,
this proposition an element of Incon
gruity. It was not Sam llnnilnll, the privato,
but Samuel .T. Itundall, the merchant
and politician, whose letter had weight
and Influence at tho War Department,
then controlled by two of Pennsylva

Revolution, who at the siege of Fort
Sloullrle in 1770, when the ilag-staff
was shot away and the flag fell into the

an tmbrosure, rescued it, fastened it to
n sponge-staff, replaced it on the para
pet and there held it amidst a hail of
bullets till another Hag-stall: could bo
prepared. Offered the commission of a
lieutenant, he declined the promotion.
He performed numerous other exploits
of personal daring, and was killed at
tho assault on Savannah In 1770, while
attempting to fasten the colors of his
legiment on the parapet of the redout
the regiment was assaulting.
Find a soldier like these, General,

THE COLUMIJUS L1BKA11Y.
If the proposition adopted by the
I'an-Americans yesterday to establish a
Latin-American library In this city Is
carried out, as it should be, it will bo a
valuable contribution to the' llbrories
and collections which already go far to
make "Washineton a literary centre. It
would be of especial value to tho hls
toilcal student, as It would bo rich In
books, maps and manuscripts relating
to the discoveries, explorations, settle

complished than tho founding of this
appropriately named Columbus Library
the conference would have justified Its
The Pan-American Confeienco yes

reference to arbitiatlon as a part of
American public or international law.

2. That all cessions of territory made

bitration, made under the conditions
named Id the second section, shall be null
It Is, perhaps, significant that Chill
did not vote.
It may seem somewhat ungracious to
criticise arbitration at this time, but the
plain truth Is that this plan to abolish
wor and substitute diplomacy, under
the guNo of arbitration, will probably
fall the first tlmo it is really tested.
Nations heretofore havo only consented
to arbitration in matters concerning
which they cared llttlo one way or tho
other, or In cases where one nation felt
It was In the wrong, and selected this
wny out of it. No nation ever yet con
sented, and, unless human nature
changes materially, no nation over will
consent, to arbitration on any essential
point involving Its honor, Its dignity
ir tho integrity of Its territory. In
inch cases tho only appeal is to the ar
bitrament of war,
'Jills Is not to say thai tlio action ot
yistcula.v is without value. It is of
great value. It Is a step, however
short, in tho right direction. It will
probably do away with wars for which
there Is no especial cause. In fine, It
ought to picvont what wo may term
avoidable wars. Our peaceful brethren
of the (Juakcr persuasion and members
of peace societies generally to tho con
trary notwithstanding, nil wars are not
avoidable, and will not bo so long as
quarrels among nations which can only
be dtteimlncd by war continue to oc

the human Individuals who compose
the nations can get along among them
selves without recourse to tho civil and

Arbitration will fall whenover cither

FURTHER ABOUT BOOK BEER
JCditor Critic: Your Impression this
evening contains a learned and interest

headed "How Hock Hcer was Named."
There are one or two points upon which
tho writer might give us further In
formation, to wit:
1, "The Babylonians ond Assyilaus
Invented beer." It would bo gratifying
to obtain indubitable testimony to this
statement, since tho Babylonian account
of tho delngo casually mentions that
among other articles taken Into the ark
were "wine, beer uud divers provis
ions." A strong probability o.Ists that
some sort of beer was coexistent with
man's thirst for it. At all ovonts It was
evidently n common antediluvian drink.
Soino contend that the Babylonian Tal
mud was bodily stolen from that of the
Jews. . Others, again, maintain the re
verse. Seeing tho rcspcctlvo contem
poraneous weight of evidence, the re
verso would scorn, more probable, as tho
cylinders antedate both.
"Tho bock beer is only an uufit
translation." Why a translation
