that he's been Ku-kluxed. If he Is alive,
this will bring a response from him. and

secretary. Mr. John Waugh, nsltaut
secretary, wrote to three papers in eaen

reach many of those whoso notice we
wished to attract. He replied that he
thought that we ought to publish our ad
vertisement in his paper as tho local pa
per of the county In which tho monument
was to bo built. I replied that if wo be
gan by giving to bis paper an advertise
ment that wo would have to give the
same to others ; inasmuch as the monu
ment was to be built out of tho funds of
the Stale of Illinois, each county paper
would feel that It had as good riglit to

to call the bidders hack to state to them

they nil agreed to do. We then niter some

and Joined with the other commissioners
in the performance of thedutlesfor which
wo were appointed.
Mow let me say.here, that no hid. speci
fication or design was presented for tlio
consideration ot the commissioners that
contemplated or even hinted at live stat
ue. The parlies receiving the contract
presented three designs, with three sep
arate set of Fpccillcatlous, and three
separate bids. (X. it. they are all In
my poses-Ion nnd can be seen bv any
one who feels mi Interest lu tlie truth or
fal-lty of tills statement). Messrs.
Emery & Co. received the contract on
tail-competition, and no lair minded man
can gainsay It.
Several articles having appeared In the
Mound City Journal dlllerlng in every
essential particular from this, jn-onoso
to notice lu detail, but very brlelly, some
of them. Article 1st savs, poorest design

shows that 1 was not in favor of.

called on Mr. I'otter and intimated mv
desire to post him (so that I would not
bo held up hi a community whoso re
spect and conlldcnco I sincerely desire,)
but found after talking with him for
some time, that there was determination
on his part not to be posted. I then told
him that I had been lu full accord with
the other commissioners since tho letting
of the contract, and I did not want him
to try mid c.xhoncrato mo from nnv

They never persuaded me that shabby

persuade me that llrown or .Metropolis,
