IMMENSE QRANITE MONUMENT.
It.llnrks the Wlnton Family Plot in
Forest Hill Cemetery.
One of the most Imposing monuments
In Forest Hill cemetery Is that re
cently erected, which marks tho Wln
ton family plot on Pine Hill, In that
cemetery. It Is massive but plain.
There is an entire absence of orna
mental carving, and tho single word
"Wlnton" Is the only lettering on It.
The monument is the work of Ed
win S. Whitney, of Delaware street,
Gieen Ridge, and is of light Bnrro
granite from the quarry of the Capi
tal Granite company, at Barre, Vt.
Resting on a solid stone foundation,
and even with the green sward that
covers Pine Hill, rests the lower block
of the monument. It Is nn immense
p'ece of granite 10x7 feet, and one foot
and eight inches In thickness. Rest
ing on this is a smaller blockof gran
ite, eight feet and four Inches by five
feet and four Inches. This Is one foot
and three Inches In thickness.
Surmounting these is the main por
tion of the monument a block of gran
ite sovon feet and two lnche3 long,
four feet and two Inches thick. The
weight of the monument Is thirty-five
tons. The corners of tho plot are de
Ignated by four granite posts of the
somo color as the monument, and there
are six markers of the same material
which point out tho location of as
many graves. On these markers are
tho following inscriptions; "W, W.
Wlnton, 1815-1894;" "Catherine Wlnton,
1818-1895;" "A. H. Wlnton. 1S3S-1S96;"

How Ucncrnl ClnrkMin Missed Secur

General Clarkson was the representa
tive of a syndicate of capitalists who
wanted to control the street railway
system of the City of Mexico, says
tho San Francisco Wavo. Dealing with
Mexican officials is purely a game of
patience, and as a rival syndicate en
tertained similar designs, the degree
of forbearance exercised may be im
agined. Tho opponent was a Spaniard,
and he had relations with the govern
ment which made him dangerous
However, tho general dealt with the
president, and finally they agreed to
$11,000,000 as the price of tho property.
To ratify tho transaction tho consent
of a certain high ofllclal had to be
obtained. He succumbed to pressure,
and agreed to sign his name next day.
This document was beforo him, the
pen In his hand, when a messenger
arrived from Diaz, commanding him to
desist. The rival had seen Clarkson
ascending tho treasury stairs, and real
izing by the triumphant expression of
his face that the game was won, rushed
off to tho president and told him the
general was the advance guard of an
American Invasion; that the United
States government having decided to
annex Mexico, had delegated him as
Its representative to obtain tho car
system, and form an army of em
ployes. Lint to a Mexican of Gringo designs,
and there Is no story too Incredible for
tholr gullibility. So posltlvo was tho
effect of tho story on Diaz, that all
negotiations wero at onco dropped and
Clarkson retired. However, tho rival
won nothing, for tho property has re
mained slnco In the hands of the gov
ernment, until bonded recently by a
Prom tha Youth's Companion.

Monument to Lincoln.
Editor of Tho Tribune.
Sir: Wo, tho undersigned Afro-American
citizens of Scranton, have formed
ourselves into the Lincoln Memorial as
sociation, tho purpose of vhlch Is to
erect a monument sacred to tho memory
of the myrtyred president In this city.
Charity to all, malaco to none, Insplro
us to this effort no less than gratitude
and appreciation for tho Inestlmablo
blessing of liberty ho uchsafed the col
ored rnce, and their prosperity and tho
restoration of nn undivided Union.
Two grand Juries of Lackawanna coun
ty having favorably endorsed the prop
osition to erect a monument to commem
orate the "soldiers and (tailors of tho
lute war," this city can rest with a de
gree of absolute nssuranco that the hon
orable commissioners will In no distant
futuro creditably fulfill this lofty mis
sion. While Justice forbids our abating one
Jot that admiration to which the "sol
diers and sailors" are- entitled, yet tho
highest Instincts of gratitude compel us
to respectfully suggest, as a tribute that
Abraham Lincoln shall also In cither
marble or metal tako his placo If not
at tho head, certainly along Bldo of thoso,
who were under his great command. We
ask It for a race, which, during the
last war, was without a traitor, and
which was neither drafted Into tho mili
tary nor tho naval forces of tho federal
government. A class of peoplo whoso
only flag was that of tho atar3 and
stripes, thus showing tho subllmest allcg
lanco to this republic, and not tho slight
est consideration for tho departed glories
of Africa. A people who today obey tho
constitution of tho United States, who
speak tho same language, discharge tho
same obligations to our country, prac
tically unanimous In conceding tho larg
est liberty to all, whether religious or
civil, and beyond all. Instead of Infidels,
wo aro unflinching believers, not only In
tho Bible, but In a matchless and ever
living God as well.
