Dr. lltlss of this city has taken up tho
question of Geneial Giant's burial place,
called upon tho Dlstilct Commlssioiieis

In reply, tho Commissioners say thoy

that thu Commlsiloucis took steps as

people to have the tomb of tlio General
located neai the National Capital.
Thoy ask whcio ho lluds a precedent
for such hastv mid unjust action.
Comiiide Edward Holland of tho

tho Giant family In sending the swords,
medals, trophies, etc., lo Washington
should set llo the disposition of llm to

leudeied to him by every clvllied

Undoubtedly Hoscoe Conkllng will bo
tho eulogist of General Grant. As nn

lilting. As Conkllng has been the vety
