Mr. It. O. Jones ol the .Viijuii-.'uiirn.i,
In an article on "Decoration Day," in
dulges In the following ungractou re
marks We are not ditpo-cd to crillcKe. wheie
everything wont off pleasantly, but wu
must say that there nppeared. In llro.
Oln-rly's speech, a studied purHsc to el
evate Dr. X. R. Caey at the e.pen- of
somebody. We offer n sectarian objec
tion ami say to llro. Oberly "You lav
too much stress on Casey." 'Let it bo un
derstood that we do tint object
to a reasonable amount of laudation
for this gentleman, but llro. Oborlv
presumed on the Ignorance ol hi audi
tors, when he Iwrvd them by reading o
copiously from the proceeding of the
2sth General Acmbly in order to -how
what a great triend the soldier of tills
country had In Dr. Caey : ye, we mut
say that quite a number of people were
bo'red. not to say dlgii"ted, at ibis part
of tlie proceeding.
We cannot understand why the charge
Is made, tliat we laid too much stress ui
on Caey, and that we read copiously
from the proceeding- of the Twenty
eighth General Assembly to show how
great a friend Casey liad been to the sol
diers of tlie country. We did not read a
line from tlie proceeding of the
General A-eiubly. and we did not lay
any tiv whatever uiou Casey. If
Mr. McCartney, who i omewhat scat
tering Iu his cliarge. had written tlie
paragraph above, we. would have attribu
ted it to the promptings of tli.it pure
cucdnes which, in a very marked man
ner. ditinguiihes hlur. but that Mr.
Jones, of the Journal, who is generally a
very Jut nun, should have written It Is a
tart tliat surprises ti-. It is po-ib!e he
penciled it while In one ot his ecstatic
mood, while his eye wa in a tine frenzy
rolling, ami we will therefore lay the
blame ot it upon hi imagination and not
reproach hi- good vm-' or reflect upon
The fact Is, we did not attempt to ele
vate. Dr. Casey at anylxlys expense,
and Mr, -lone will, we are sure, when be
lias come down out ot tlie mountain of
the muse, and has coiid-ceided to in
dulge in pro-aical (nr.tr. aIiiiit thl ! If
Theoccaviou was the dedication of n
monument ; and, iu our -pe.-.-li, we liad
to iiKjiiIre : Who ordered the monument
to be built': Why wa it ordered'; In J
replying to the lir-t que-iioii we :
said: tlie people of the Slate,
at the MlggcMiou of Dr. Casey,
a member of the General Assembly, or
dered it, and tlieii We proceeded to tell
our auditors why It liad lx-cu ordered.
Iu doing this we used Dr. Ca-ey'-name
twice only. We had to give the
history of the bill, ami, in doing so. we
were compelled to name the mcmticr of
the General Assembly who had Intro
duced it; but wo did not, iu our remarks,
evince any purpose to elevate him at
any other person's exiK-use; and, In fact,
gave to every jierson who was connected
with the construction of the monument
as iiineli prominence as we gave to Dr.
Casey, naming them ail.
Hut the fact Is and this we know that
to Dr. Casey does Ulong the credit of the
monument. It Casey had not lx-en a
member of the Twenty-eighth General
Assembly, an appropriation to build the
monument would not have been made.
He Introduced the bill ; followed It lo
the committee ; got it back to the House ;
called It up without delay ; and paed it.
He followed It to the Senate and to the
Senate committee; got It reported back
without delay ; had It called up without
loss of time and passed. lie took It to
the Governor and had It signed the day
after It passed the Senate. We saw hlm
tit these labors, and we know, us well as
we know anything, that It was Casey's
energy and tact that passed the
monument bill. Ho inanaired tin. bill
himself solitary and alone from the
day of Its Introduction until Its passage
ami approval ny tho Governor, and he
must bo a mean man who would deslro
to take from the doctor any credit that
may belong to securing tills appropria
tion. This we did not say at Mound City,
uuineiuiKij ii now, not tor the pur
pose ot elevating Dr. Casey ut anybody's
expense, but In Justice to hlm, and Iu
compliment of the skill ho displayed,
much to our admiration, Iu handling the
monument bill in the General Assembly.
