Davis Memorial to Be of Joint
THE SITE UNDETERMINED
Much Will Depend on the General Char?
acter of the Memorial, and Judg?
ment of Messrs. Valentino and
Noland Will Go Far. *
The selection of a. site for the Davis
memorial Is yet to be made. The direc?
tors of the Monument Association, ac?
companied by Messrs. E. V. Valentine,
sculptor, and William C. Nolnnd, archi?
tect, drove over the city yesterday morn?
ing, lo iking at various localities which
have been suggested. Twelfth and
Broad Streets nnd Monroe Park st?.,.id
out most prominently In the snln?ls of
all, but no decision was reached. The
ladies will be guided, to some extent, by
tho character of the memorial designed
by Messrs. Vnlentlno and Noland, but as
tho shapo, size and exact nutute of it
ore not known, no dsclslon can yet bo
reached. The surroundings must bo suit
able to the memorial and will have to bo
?elected with that thought first In the
minds of those to whom this duty Is en?
Each Has His Share.
The work of Messrs. Valentine and
Noland Is quite clearly defined. Mr. Val
??ntlne will make tho cast of Mr. Davis,
which Is to bo moulded Into bronze. He
Is to make any other figures which tti<:
two gentlemen may deefdo to employ for
the. embellishment of tho general struc- I
ture. In designing the general form of
the memorial tho two will be likely to
"get together," though In this matter
It would not be surprising If Mr. Noland
takes the initiative. He exhibited to the
assembled directors nnd advisory board
on Thursday night drawing? showing
bis Idea of a suitable memorial, whlcn
excited considerable admiration and In
the main was considered satisfactory.
There Is no doubt that In the design
which will be submitted to the directors
November 10th next, when they meet In
Charleston, will In It? main features be
very similar to that shown by Mr. No
lend Thursday night and of which a cut
was printed In Tho Tlmes-DIspatch not
long since. Mr.* Noland will give the
contract for the prectlon of all the me?
morial save the Ilguro of Mr. Davis, the
?contract for the cavtlng of which Mr.
Valentine will award.
Cost Sixty Thousand.
The cost of the entire memorial Is not
to exceed KO.WO. This la about K.OOO short
of the sum In the hands of the associa?
tion, but money will be needed for Inci?
dental expenses and this contingent fund
The design will be prepared as soon as
possible, and sent to Mrs. McCullough,
president, and by her forwarded to all
members of the board. Each will thus oe
given an opprotunlty to make any sug?
gestions or change she may see lit. The
plans, revised If necessary, will be sub?
mitted to the board assembled In Char?
leston, S. C, November 10th next, the
day preceding the annual meeting of the
Daughters of the Confederacy. If the de?
sign be approved by the directors It will

The decree of the highest court, con?

Labor Leader tho Guest of
GIVES BIT OF HISTORY
In Well-Chosen Words Ho Told of the
Advantages of Agreements in the
Preventing of Labor
Not since the visit of Mr. Frank Mor?
rison, secretary of tho American Federa?
tion of Labor, to this city three years
ago, have tho laboring people been hon?
ored with a visit from an official of the
body until last night, when Mr. Jamaos
Duncan, first vice-president of the A.
F. ?f L. and secretary-treasurer of the
Oranltecutters' International Association
of America, was the guest of the local
branch of granltecutters.
Mr. Duncan arrived In Richmond yes?
terday afternoon and was met by a com?
mittee from the local and escorted to
New Ford's, where he will remain until
to-day at noon.
AN OLD RICH MONDER.
Nineteen years ago Mr. Duncan used
the hammer and chisel, and occasionally
the bush hammer, on government work
for the erection of the War and Navy
building in Washington, over In the
Westham quarry, across the river. Ho
spent the afternoon In visiting old ac?
quaintances here yesterday.
From this city Mr. Duncan sought his
home North, and entered the movement,
and has steadily rifen from president of
a local branch to his present position.
He ranks next to President G.-rmpera, of
the A. F. of L.
MEETING OF LOCAL BRANCH.
When President Ben Schutte called ti?.
local branch to order In Smlthdeal Hall,
the full membership was present. The
routine business was hurriedly disposed
of; ' and Mr. Duncan, the guest of the
union was Introduced.
Mr. Duncan, who Is of fine physique
and a fluent talker, spoke on the theme
He referred to the close alliance of the
employe to the employer, which had
brought about a. closer adherence to union
principles. The conditions of the granite
cutters was by far better than they had
been In thirty years, and ninety-seven per
cent, of the men who worked at the trade
were members of locals.
"In New England." said Mr. Duncan,
"the existing circumstances are better
than ever. In three and a half years the
hours of labor have been reduced from
nine to eight hours, and a Saturday half
holiday, with an increase of thirty-three
and one-third per cent In wages.
"There has been only one strike In our
craft In three years," continued the speak?
er, "and this was occasioned by unfair
stock, and at that the cost to the union
was only $100.
'All over the country we have agree?
ments from one to Ove years of duration.
This Is a condition we can be justly proud
of, for It takes a ninety days' notice from
either side before the agreement can be
opened again, thus avoiding strikes and
lockouts. In these bills are incorporated
plans for arbitration, thus ensuring a
double guarantee against any unpleasant?
THIRTY TEAR CAMPAIGN.
Mr. Duncan then told of the thirty year
campaign in Congress for the eight-hour
day. which had failed utterly, and said
that three vears ago the granite cutters
notified their employes that In 1903 they
would inaugurate the system as a trade
condition, and to-day his craft employed
shorter hours through their own cam?
paign as against that of a thirty year
political strife. Ho then told of condi?
tions existing in the Dominion of Can?
ada, where the clergy and polltlcans hud
striven to defeat unionism by denounc?
ing the members of the A. F. of L. as
foreign agitators and how when Presi?
dent Gompers had entered Montreal a
week after the denunciation the populace
turned out en masse and greeted him.
President Gompers addressed that day
10,000 people and to-day three labor union
men are in the Dominion Parliament.
This, he said, had padded the brethren
across the border against the so-called
Mr. Duncan spoke for nearly an hour
and his address was replete with inter?
esting Information and at times he waxed
After the meeting the members repaired
to Snnger Hall, where Lawler served an
President Schutte presided as toast
master, and Mr. Duncan again made an
address to the union and Invited guests.
He, In a most humorous strain, referred
to the granite cutters as the "preservers
of the art preservative," nnd delved Into
ancient history to show that his craft
were the first unionists.
Commissioner of Labor James B.
Doherty and Organizer W. H. Mullen
made addresses, which were happily re?
ceived. During the evening Bezln Orr
and Wilbur J. Grlggs, of the street car
men, were presntcd to Mr. Duncan.
Mr. Duncan will leave to-day at noin
for his home In Washington,

EVIDENCE OF CONSPIRACY
Drift of Evidence Tends to Show that
Jett and White Were Not Parties to
Conspiracy, but Hired
(By Associated Press.)
JACKSON, K?? June 12.?A number of
correspondents arrived here to-day. Includ?
ing magazine writers and artists for Illus?
trated papers. Provost Marshal Longmlre
has made no arrests for two nights and
two days. Since ho closed the "blind
tigers" there has been no shooting during
the night. The- free use of weapons In
tne carousals around these places led to
reports at times of bands of feudlsts
coming Into town to attack the Jail. Court
had to take the noon recess to-day earlier
than usual, because the next witness was
unable to get on tho witness stand, and
it was evident that liquor Is still available
from some sources.
Tha feature of the trial to-day was the
drift of 'evidence townrd a conspiracy
implicating county officials and others,
and tending to show that Jett and White
had no such motives as the conspiracy,
but were simply hired to kill J. B. Mar?
cum. who was the attorney for parties
contesting the election of county officials.
The defense during tho forenoon moved
to have the case continued on account of
the absence of witnesses, and again In the
afternoon on account of the Illness of one
of the attorneys for the ?lefens?. In both
Instances -Judge Redwino ordered the
trial to proceed.
