* Endeavoring to Appear
G'eneral FltzhUgh Lee was asked yes
terdav what he thought about placing the
statue of General R. E. Lee ln Washlng
"Oh," said he. "I do not know that I
ought to say anytlilng about. thls, but,

"Tho people of the North seem to bo
dlvldod into three classes:
"1. The liberal, generous. broad-mlnded
men nnd women who know that thc war
is long over, and know. too, that It Is per
fectly natural in Vlrgin.ans to honor and
respeet the momory of great citizens and

and do not cjire ono way or the other and
are not dlsposed to int<?rforp wlth a mat?

trylng to make up for such deflclency by
aiipearlng to be Invincible ln peacc.
"I am informed that the United States
Government paid $2,000 to tho nrtlst, or
hls heirs. for the statue of Washlngton
now In the StaLunry Hall In Washlngton.
It Is a plnster enst of the "Hotidon
