be here for soveral days yeU decllnodlo
tmy anythlng, about tho action of tho
bommlttee, 'of whlch, up to thnt time,

Tho Judgo was eenlcd in hls room At
JFord's Hoiel when tho reportcr knock
od. Two of hls friends woro present and
the lltUe company were cliuttlng pleas
nntly in the mldst of a cloud of ebacoo
smoke. Judge Campbell wns q,umUo ed
about the acllon of tho conimttoe.but
he declared that he had boen unablei to
Bscertaln what had boen declded. The
. only thlng be knew was that the gontie
mon of t_?, commltteo had detorniined
?to glve out nothlng. Both ho nnd hls
" frienda cxprossod great surprlso tliat the
newspapers should be able lo/loarn thin_B
denled to thoso personally lnterosted.
Not by any sign did Judge Campbell
manifest the feellng whlch must havo
ctirred liis breast when ho was told ot

calmly aboul. tho matter and asked vori

Then ho was asked to mako somo st,ate
Inont, but he 'declinod.
"No," ho declared; "I havo nothlng to

Even if 1 had'-.heard offlclally from the

thlng; Ccrtainly 'under thn present clr
cumstancos. when I havo bad.no com
jnunlcatlon from them.'Jt would not ne
proper for me to do so." .
It ls llkely that Judgo Campbell wlll
fctay in the city untll tho reports aro

come back. Accordlng to his own statc

Approved Sentiment of His Address.
Staternents from Lee and Hunton.
Editor of ,The Times-DJspatch:
Slr,?My aeknowledgment and thanks
fcre due you for tho prompt efhclency of
5-our effort to correct the misappi-ehen
_'on' by your reporter of my address at
I,ee Camp Hall on tho evenlng of Feb?
ruary 20th. ; -
The verbatlnii'report of that address
tend the "acconipanylne editorial corn
ments in yotiir tssue" of February _!d
?wero sufllciently convincing that I had
tiot made the declaratlon orlginally at
Itributcd to me.
But paxt of tho erroneous lmpresslon
has not been rernoved. It has not been
tnade plalu (whlch ls the truth) that
neithe tho aud'ienco nor the speakers
who followed me failod- to understand
the true Import of my remarks; and that
the latter, instead of crltlcislng my ut
tcrances, were entirely in accord wlth
them, and had no reference to me nor
to anythlng I sald ln thelr forclble pro
lests agalnst the opinon of some South?
ern men, that "jt was best tlie war ended
as it did."
To clear up that phaso of the, mlsap
prehension,. and ln dlsmlssal of thls mat?
ter, I rehi-^aritly.'.ask' for further space
in your colurnns for reproductlon of ex
tracts from letters I have received from
prominent ex-Confederates who wero
present at Loe Camp on the occasion In
questlon, lncluding the speakers on that
occasion other than myself.
What General Hunton says: "What I
pald ln condemnation of thoso who had
expressed pleasure at the failure of the
riear "Lost Causo" was not lntended for
you. J. heard no word uttc-red by you
whlch could be construed lnto the lan
gnage attributed to you by newspaper
report. Your spcech waa ono lhat re
ffiected crcdit on your head and heart
and dellgh'ted Vour'bld comrades."
TEHTIMOMY'CSF GENERAL LEE.
"ln your flne.'s'jieech made recently at
Loe Camp Hall, y'ou stood steady, as I
heard it, on the same ground 1 took
nftcrwards, and did not re.ioico In the
fact that tlio war of lS61-'65 onderl ad
.vorsoly to tho Southern cause. I did not
rcply to ajsylhlng you had sald, but^ at?
tempted. ,tff.ksfTal&htoii. If posslblc, and
make mbre" cmphatlc your statoment on
thu same subject."
FROM EX-GOVERNOR O'FERP.ALL.
"I llstened wlth Intense lntorest to your
nddress last Frlday ovonlng. I sat lm
nic-dlately lu front of you and hcarci every
word ol' yorti flne effort, and the lan
guagb alti'lbutc-d lo you was never ut
tered. Tho speecli was absoiutoly fault
Jesa in language and sontinieut from tho
rtandpolnt of a 'Confederate soldicr. Thore
was not a senten'co or a word thal could'
? havo Ll-ou torturnd into an expresslon of
Batlsfactlon that Ihe South did not uchlcve
her Independence."
FROM COMMANDER SMITH.
"I beard you witli great attontlon, and
J know the newspaper report on Saturday
mornipK was entirely niit-takcn and did
fou great lnJufiUcc, Permit ino to thank
you personally for that nobla address.
It was an lns'pjratlon glven by a loj-al
and patrjQtlc, heart."
Slmllarly uruphatie and gratifylng let?
ters hava heen-recelved from many other
well known c-x-Confederate soldiers. Judgo
George L. Clu'i.sllaii and Captaln W. Gor?

Washlngton, D. C? Fobruary 37, 1003,
The \ Domocrats are so nearly mastert
of tho Houso of Reprosontatlvea tliat
they aro practlcally ln control. Thero
has "heen practlcally no buslness done
elnce Wedneaday snvo the oustlng of
Butler,. the Mlssourl Democat, a.nd tlie
seatlng of Wagoner, tho Repuibllcan. The
threat of the minorlty that lf thef ma?
jorlty unseated the Democrat, without
ever having read tlie testlmony that flll?
busterlng tactlcs should provall untll the
end of tho sesslon, is belng fulfllled. F-ull
rellef ls not ln slght, and it ls not pro
bablo that thero wlll bo much moro lcg?

opposltlon to every blll to whlch there
Is any objectlon.
Thls atidden Inauguratlon of a filibus

tho omhibus public bulldlngs blll, and
tlio appropriatlon for tho, purchase of a

er' Henderson ls opposed to tho whole
blll. He has declared ho will not allow
It to be callod up. Hls attitudq.is be?
lieved to be due to that of the Democrats
In opposlng leglslation.
An eff'ort ls belng made by tho Domo?
crats to lnduce tho Speaker, upon assur
ance of no Democratlc opposltlon, to al?
low tho blll to go 'through. Ropresenta
tlve Lamb is very hard at work among
Democrats to agree not to oppose the
blll, and among Republlcans to induce
the .Speaker to recognlze Mr. Mercer,
chalrman of the Commlttee on Publlo
Grounds and Bulldlngs to call up tho
bill. Mr.11 Lamb hopes to be succesful,
but savs'ho wlll not clalm a "vlctory"
if he is.
It wouid look as though the bill wouid
pass, but it wlll not have the plaln sall
ing expected for it boforo the arbltrary
exercise of power by the majorlty in
seatlng a contestant without even read
lng tho ovldenco In the case.
Thls fllibuster is productlve of evll.
in so far as lt prevents the passage of
doslrable leglslation, but good will fiow
from the preventlon of bad leglslation,
whieh is always enactod ln a sesslon's
closlng days.
Thero is heard now more talk of an
extra session of Congress than at any
time since thi6 sesslon began. A num?
ber of the Democrats havo said they
wouid not hesitato to defeat appropria?

tlcs of obstructlon.
Although a rule adopted by the House

VTTER FAIbURE.
A talk with a Democratlc member of
the House to-day was interesting, as
showing the utter fallure of the Repub
lieans to regulato trusts. The ono thing
tho peoplo of tho country had a right to
expect Congress to do lt has not done,
and cannot now do were lt so disposed.
It wa.i proclaimed the length and breadth
of the land that tho chlef good work
whieh wouid be done by tho .Republlcan
majorlty at this session ? .wofuld bo the
remilatlon of the trusts. I . ?
"It is easy to show''that tho leglslation
having for Its ostenslble purpose tho reg
ulation, not to say subjugatlon, .of the
trusts, is in reality ln the Interest of
combined wealth. The so-callod publlolty
featuro of the Department of Comraerce
blll Is Just exactly what a blg corpora?
tion wouid ask ln Its flght to crush out
smnll conipetltors. As a stock boomer,
nothlng could be better than the general
publlcatlon of Its hea-vy dlvldonds and
gcnornl prosperity. Of courso, Mr. Rook
efellor, whose averslon to having the pub?
llo know aught of hls affalrs has pre
vented the llsting of Standard Oil on the
New York Exchanjfe. mlght for a tlmo
object to having publlohed to the world
the truth about hls pront- sand mothods,
hut .his averslon wouid sOOn vnnlsh when
ho saw auch great roturns ln tho way
of lnereasod prlco of 'stock.'
"Upon tho other hanu, weak corpora
tlons, composed of mon with small means,
men wlio valnly bolleve thoy can success
fully pit industry, bralns, energy and a
llttle money agalnst unllmited capltal,
wlll suffer. Tlioy will he hurt Immeasur

bunlness publlshfTd tb- the publlc?that
part of tho publlo'looklng for profUablo
Investment. Thoy cannot stand tho com
parlson with tholr glanl competitors.
"Tho Elkins blll,. forblddlng rallroad.
