GRANT AND LEE
TO EllErT A COLOSSAL STATUE
AT CUMBERLAND GAP,
WITH CLASPED HANDS ON HORSEBACK
Looking Toward the Sections Against
Which They Fought.
FAVORED BY SOLDIERS FROM BOTH SIDES
Interviews With Prominent Confederates
and Grand Army Men- Will Re
store the Unity of the Country.
Cumberland Gap attracted consider
able attention to itself when It received
a vote for the "World's Fair In the Home
of Representatives last spring, and It
lias now come forward with n proposal
that will undoubtedly tend to Increase
It proposes to raise by popular sub
scription the amount necessary to erect
a colossal cquestrlau statue to Generals
Grant and Lcc, with hands clasped and
looking towards Hie sections against
which they fought.
The sentiment which prompted thts
Is a beautiful and patriotic one, looking
as it docs to the typifying of the mag
nanimity and fortitude of two nf the
?;rcatcst of America's soldiers. It puts
n bronze the famous sccno at Appo
mattox when the two opponents clasped
hands at the conclusion of hostilities,
and furnished a lesson that should havo
been profited by.
SuchnBlatuoas Is proposed, If erected
by the subscriptions of the North and
Ekuitb, will tend to do much to allay
the feeling between the sections, and to
make them onco more n common counj
try and a united people.
The plan Is generally approved by
persons with whom Tub Ciutic has
talked men prominent in the Federal
nnd Confederate armies who fought
under l lie command or uic men 10 wnom
It Is proposed to erect this memorial.
The suggestion has been made that
Washington Is the proper place for
such a monument, and no doubt If tho
Idea was ngltatcd its successful con
summation could bo reached.
The following dispatch In refcronco
to tho matter was received at tho State
Department yesterday from Middles

North, extending bands to eaeti; baa taken
country by atorm ami $14,000 already auti
scrl!d. Will you co-operate with u tu
this noble enterprise.
Alexander A. Arthur,
Johv JI. Uhouks,
Mr. Maine could not be seen, but his
private secretary said the Secretary
probably would pay no attention to It.
Ciutic reporters saw Secretary Proc
tor of the War Department, Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Hatcheller,
Commissioner of Internal Itevenue
Mason, and they declined to express an
opinion one way or another.
The dispatch was also shown to, and
read by. Senator Ingulfs, Major Me
Klnley, Mr llurrows. and Mr. Cannon,
but each of them, while he seemed In
tcri'ted, declined to say anything.

Postmaster General Wanamaker said
to the reporter that, before erecting any

be better to complete the one In New

I can very frankly sy that I am in
favor of It". I feel that anything that
will bring about peace and harmony In
the republic ought to be favored. One
thing that has (leadened all Inspiration
on my part to the South is the un
disputed fact that had General
Grant so desired he could have obtained
the assistance of 100,000 Confederate sol
diers In n campaign against Maximilian
All that they would have asked would

services of any Confederate ofllcer then
they would be at his dlpotl and that
he for one would volunteer his aid. I
would very much like to see any steps
taken that would tend to harmonlre the

SUMMER WHITE HOUSE
WHAT THE WILD WATBS ARE SAYING
OF THAT COTTAGE BY THE SBA,
Tflint Dill It Cost? Only Tito Men
Know Preparing to Itecelve
the President's Faintly.
The hamlsome cottage which a num
bcr of gentlemen liav prwentetl to Mrs.
1'rMldent llarrlwn, sltnateil at Cape
May Tolnt, K. .!., Is one of the finest
butldlnga of the sort on the lower New
Jersey coast. It Is located directly on
the beach near the light house at Cape
May I'olnt, and commands an excellent
view of the entrance to the Delaware
Hay and a sweep of the ocean.
Just what the cottage cost only two
men know, and they will not tell.
Those gentlemen are Mr. A. II. Hamil
ton of the Slinrcliam Hotel, and Mr.
William V. McKean of the VubHc
Lcilper. It Is known that these gentle
men were among the contributors to tho
fund Messrs. Gcorne W. Chllds, A J.
Drcxcl, I'ostmaster-Ocnoral Wana
maker. General William J. Scwcll nnd
A. II. Hamilton. It is understood that
there were other contributors to the
fund, but there names are kept eecrct.
A ni.iND root,.
A good story is told In connection
with the Hartlson cottage atthecxpente
of Mr. George W. Chllds of the PaWc
iMlgtr. Mr. Chllds' confidence In the
manager ot ills paper, .Mr. William v.
McKean, Is akin to that which a child
has In Its father. One day Mr. McKean
said to the proprietor ot tho 'We
Ledger: "How would you and Mr.
Drcxcl like to co Into a blind poolv"
Knowing that It was for somo worthy
object the two gentlemen handed over
their checks for the sum requested.
KarJy this wick Mr. Chllds read In n
newspaper that he was one ot tho con
tributors to the Harrison cottage fund.
He asked Mr. McKean how nbnut It,
and be was then informed that that was
the blind pool.

All is bustlo nnd confusion about tho
collage now. Tho carpentors, garden
ers, upholsters and painters arc hard at
work preparing the building for tho
new occupant, Much admired Is a
beautifully carved mantel at the end of
the first tloorhall. Ills set In artistic
tiles, surrounding an open lire place.
At the left the parlor furniture ot velvet,
with a groundwork of autumn loaves
Is beautiful. The floor are covered
wilh rich oriental matting. The recep
lion room Is opposite to the parlor, and
Is furnished In cane seated cherry, light
and graceful. The dining room Is fur
nliheil In oak.
The stairways nro ot ash, highly pol
ished. The President's room Is cov
ered with velvet carpet, and the furul-
turo is or rich cherry, with brass han
dles. On the third Hoor arc the sleep
ing rooms and a spacious billiard hall.
To each suite of rooms Is attached a
bath-room of luxurious design and
finish. The gas fixture are very artis
tic. There are electric bells, complete
modern kitchen appliances and perfect
sanitary turroundlngs. The house Is
proticted from the weather by deep
double-banked porches on all four of
fiem M SI. Lo'iU JUt IHiixitc.
When the President permit hi Cab
inet officers or other appointee to make
presents of valuable mansion or real
estate to hi wife or children, why
should not hi subordinates Intrusted
with the management of polo!tice and
ctwtom-house Imitate hi Illustrious
From (At IVtttirg IUI.
The llepubllcan organs were much
concerned about Mayor Grant's gift to
the Crokcr girl. The I'ltUburg QuuU
wants an iu estimation ot this incident.
Wherein doe it differ save it is lea
offensive from the gift of the twenty
room cottage at Cape May to the Harri
sons! From Ikt ( kkago lltxilU
It l bad enough that John Wana
maker, who raised a gigantic corruption
fund la lbtttt. should have been paid for
his service by an appointment to the
Cabinet, but it Is een worse that he
should characterize hi orHcial career
by making such gifts to the wife of the
man who placed him, a ad that his la
suiting generosity should be accepted
without a blush With thl wretched
example la high places we may look for
a speedy revival of gift giving awl gift
taking. It is an easy descent front cot
tages by the sea to bull pup and pack
ages ot greenbacks.

I.t I ino, June 1 1. Old stories of th
bite of tho tarantula inducini: an uncon
trollable desire to dance have been re
called to mind here by the death of
little Maurice llenton, son of Lemuel
Denton, a prominent lawyer. The little
fellow hail been play lug on the lawn of
his father's residence and ran in to hi
mother, complaining that something
had Muck In his bare foot. The mem
ber was c.Yjtmlned by Mrs. llenton nnd
a small red wound, such as a large sized
ueidle might have punctured, was
found, but wa accompanied by no
swilling and but little pain, so apply
ing a little camphor to the place hU
mother thought no more of It.
Dining the night, however, she was
aroused by the child's uneasiness and
complalnlug, to she took him out of his
btd and to her horror discovered that
the entire limb had turned a purplish
black. A physician was sent for, but
before he arrived the boy was In strong
convulsion, of so peculiar a character
that tlie doctor at once ausnectetl the
pretence of some unusual poison. The
spasms seemed confined to the limbs,
which were so violently ami continu

dam log up and down, throwing it
arms wildly ami twitching its linger.
These painful contortions lasted until
the little fellow sank exhausted ami
unconscious, in which state he re
mained all the next day, dying in the
The body wa perfectly livid, with
great spots of discoloration nearly black
ou the limb and stomach, while a pe
culiar fungus growth made it appear
ance between the parted lip. The
phy siclan were much puzzled to ac
count for the case, a the limb wa so
swollen as to render any examination of
the wound Impossible, but old settler
say that from the description ot it and

undoubtedly caused by the bite of a

Nbw Youk, June 14. A JleruM

States Marshal George K. Gaul, at Kn
tcnada, has disclosed the fact that the
Mexican Land and Colonisation Com

In fact, put In force a policy with the
object ot driving every American set
tler oft the peninsula of Lower Cali
fornia. The company's Idea was to colonize
the peninsula with Kngllshmcn nnd
establish a Itrltlsh protectorate over
Uic country. The Lngllsh company
was desirous of the establishment of a
republic of Lower California, was ready
to assist such scheme, nnd its olllcers
had agreed to do so. A course ot per
secution and proscription of the
American colonists had for some
months been pursued by Major
lluchanan Scott In his capacity as
On July 17, 18S0. a decree was issued
by tho contral government of Mexico
containing a list of articles that should
be admitted Into Lowor California free
of duty for the use of the colonics.
To prove that one was a colonist It was
necessary to secure a certlllcate from
the Mexican Consul at San Diego.
Upon Its nrilval at ltasenada the cer
tlllcatc was registered by an Inspector
of colonies and by the International
Comany, which keeps a roll of all the
colonists. The policy of the English
corporation, through it olllcers, has
been to strike from the rolls such colon
ists as It has seen fit, the names being
without exception Americans.
As a matter of course, the American
colonist whose names wete stricken
from the roll, were forced to pay duty
on every thing that was Imported. The
original list ot tlie colonists contained
about 1,'JOO names. Under the policy
of proscription the list ho been re
duced to !(00.

After beating the burden for some
tlmo the American colonists concluded
to band together and do something to
save themselves. They therefore organ
lied what Is known as the American
Colonists' Protective Association. They
have now a healthy organization. The
member are engaged In circulating a
memorial, which Is being liberally
signed by residents, and which will 1
presented to President Diaz through
(Jen Torres. The Protective Association
has Inert organized In accordance with
the laws of Mexico. Settlers who are
members of It alUrm their loyalty to the
The memorialists ask that President
DIa revoke the grant made to the In

among other things, that It ha failed to
comply with it agreements made with
tlie colonists . also that they are ion

matured plans to Involve the American
colonists ia a filibustering scheme for
the purpose of creating a strong preju
dice against Amerh aus on the part of
the Mexican Government and people
with a view to securing the full eon
tulence of the Mexican Government
and Anally controlling the peninsula,

Mexico had not a stronger fores of

said "Mexico does not rely upon Laid

MFXICO WAS TO HAVE TIRES I5VADn.
It l known that when reports of a
filibustering attempt against Mexico
came to the ears of the Administration
the special agent of the Department of
Justice, Mr. 1J C. Foster, was sent to
California by the Attorney General to
make a tlrortnigh Investigation of the
facts. He is now on his way to Wash
Ington, ami a San Francisco dispatch
reports him as saying-
"The flllmistetlng scheme Is fully as
extensive as has been reported. It may

being placed along tlie Mexican
Ptivate leports received at the Mexl

These reports asert that the plan of the
filibustering conspirators covered larger
ground than has htthetto been de
v eloped, and that they expected lo at
tack, not the peninsula of Lower Cali
fornia, but the mainland of Mexico.
The plan, as thus .slated, contem
plated an Insurrection of the Yngttl In

Nr.w Youk, Juno 11. Althouzh It Is
given out that there has been no con
fcrence on the subject of Hlehard
Crokct's coming examination liefora
the Faisctt committee, It Js a fact that
several meetings of such admitted
loaders ss UourKe Cockrun, Corpora
tion Counsel Clark, lleglster Fitz
gerald, Polite Commissioner Martin
and Commissioner tillroy Have been
held since Mr. Croker's return from
Kurope. The cause of this anxiety Is
the probability that the big chief may
be ipieslloiifcd regarding matters not yet
touchid upon by the committee.
llrother in-law McCann Is credited
with the assertion that there are several
surprises In store for Mr. Croker when
he goes upon tho witness stand, and
that he is very much mistaken If he
imagines that he will only lie questioned
upon facts already brought out. Mr.
McCann hints In a very mysterious way
that many matters of fur more Im
portance have been held in reserve for
Mr. Croker's appearance.
Mr. Ivlus, counsel of the committee,
said he extiected to day to announce the
date of Mr. Croker's examination. In
regard to the line of examination to be
followed In the questioning of Mr.
Croker Mr. Ivins wa reticent.
Lawyer ltoardman, Mr. Ivlus' part
ner, said he expected Mr. Croker to ad
id It that he was, contrary to statute, a
partner In the Mt St Vim ent Hotel
undera city contract while he wa Fire
Commissioner. Mr. lloardman added
"I do not think he will corroborate
Mayor Grant's story, that the $10,000
was a gift to bU daughter Flossie or
that it wa all the money he received
from the same source. Mr. Croker is a
Arm believer in the tenet of the church
to which be belongs, and I do not think
he will go that far."
