a .map showing vthc lines prepared by
himself for the benefit of the commit?
tee. This report did not Include Barton
Heights, Chestnut Hill or Manchester,
and It soon became evident that most i
of those present desired a much broader
extension, especially on the eastern,
western and northern sections:
Mr. Garber's Views.
Councilman Garber spoke for the east?
ern section, and In favor of, reaching
out beyond Fulton. He thought the peo?
ple favored annexation down t?ls way,
and he earnestly pleaded that the east?
ern section be enlarged.
Mr. S. B. Cowardln spoke for Colonel
Cutshaw's roport, so far as It refers to
annexing property near Chlmborazo

sion? of the statue of Stuart mounted
had also been reopened by a suggestion
of C-encra.1 Fltshugh I>eo that these be
made tv/lco life size Instead of heroic, as
originally agreed upon. Some of tho
members of the committee were afraid
tho statue monument would he too small
to comport with that of General Robert
E. Lee, not far westward of the Stuart
monument site. Sculptor Moynihan waa
present at last night's meeting and gave
tho committee the benefit of Judgment
in the matter of tho pedestal and the di?

present. - *
Tho suggestion, of General Lee that the
statue of horse and rider bo made tivlco
life size, instead of once and a half or
herolo size, wan rejected, the committee
preferring tho heroic model;
There was considerable difference of
opinion as to how high* tho pedestal
should ho to proper show the statue that
will surmount It. After conslderable^dis
cusslon, It was agreed that the plan for
a pedestial 15 feet high, twenty feet long
and twelve foet wide would meet all re?
quirements. This was Anally agreed
The inscription to be placed on tho
pedestal was dlscussod and finally agreed
upon. The horse will face down Frank?

direction of the Let statue. On the two

In tenement houses, occupied by a large
I number of families ' and at least two of

tus enabled the firemen to save many per?

flames and choking smoke.
Nearly all thj flres started in the lower
part of the buildings, and although In

TRY TO BREAK
President Roosevelt Will Out?
line Policy Toward Negro
and the South.
WILL DELIVER ADDRESS
Friends Claim That He Has
Been Misunderstood by the
People of This Section.
(From Our Regular Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Novi 10.?Pres?
ident Roosevelt will make a trip to his
mother's old home In Georgia before In-,
auguratlon day and on that trip will de?
liver a speech In which ho will outline his
policy toward the South. This state- ;
ment is authoritative and Is the first an?
nouncement made concerning the lnten
Uonb of the President with reference to
his atUtude toward the negro and the
white people of the Southern States. ,
It Is asserted by friends of the admin?
istration that tho Southern people have
misunderstood Mr. Roosevelt -and that
he will mako it plain before ho takes his
seat again on the 4th of March, that ho
has been misunderstood and that It Is his
desire to be regarded as tho President of
the entire country. Though tho Presi- !
dent Is unwilling to anticipate-the speech
those -closest to him say ho will outline
a policy, which will appeal to tho peoplo
of the South as magnanimous and Im?
Admiration of Enemies.
. Mr. Roosevelt's most bitter political
enemies have expressed admiration of
his renunciation In tho hour of triumph
of ambitions looking towards another
term. That ho did not say while tho
campaign was on that ho would not again
sock tho nomination, though urged to
mako such a declaration, proves, thoy
say, that ho was above demagoguery of
that kind. It is assorted that he did not
mnko a declaration regarding tho negro
policy ho would pursue after election, be?
cause ho felt It would ho construed as
a bid for s'upport, but that ho will now
declaro a policy, which will compel tho
rympathetlo assistance of the people of
the South In 'its execution.
There has never been tho slightest
doubt of tho ambition of Theodore Roose?
velt. His closest friends say that now
that ho has beon elected President by
tho greatest popular majority over given
any president, It is his ambition to retiro
from offloo with tho good-will of the good
men of every section and party.
However this may bo, It Is confidently
believed that the forthcoming nddrosa
will outlino a Southern policy very differ?
ent from what has boon accepted gene?
rally as that which ho Initiated when ho
nesumed Hie fieilt n",fU> vilca?t >>>' the
death of McKinley. But It is not bollovod
that ho will withdraw the appointment
of Dr Cr?ro to the eollootorshlp of tin?
iort of Charleston, which was made ovur
two years ngo and which has nover boon
confirmed by the Renato. \

Jackson was shot and killed. Harvey
Jackson, a brother of W. A. Jackson
and two othor brothers, armed them?
selves and started out to "clean up" the
entire police force of the town,' which Is
a small hamlet, near Fayette. A tele
phono message was sent to Sheriff Daniels
of Fayette county, to come to Montgom?
ery at otice, as bloodshed was certain.
Daniels reached Montgomery at 10 o'clock
this morning. Just as ? he stepped from
tho train he saw Ilarvoy Jackson, and
placing h la hand 'on Jackson's shoulder,
told him to leave the, town under penalty
of being arrested. Jackson, without a
word, llrcd twice point blank at tho
sheriff, each bullet taking effect.' Tho
sheriff dropped to the ground, dying in?
stantly. John Rolf, a prominent citizen
of tho town, was standing nearby and
had witnessed the talk botween Daniels
and Jackson. Throwing up his hands ho
advanced toward Jackson to remonstrate
with him and to help Daniels,. Jackson,
turned and shot Rolf dead. Then reload*

his hip pocket, ho brandjshed thorn In

base nearby and. escaped in tho woods.
After Ash had''drlven the murderers to

(By Associated Press.)
LON7DON, November 10?1:63 P. M>*
Unofficial representation? to Russia,
looking to peace, have been made by
Japan and have resulted In failure, and
tho step, even privately, is not likely; to
Although tho suggestion o? a paclfhj
settlement was made unofficially. It ac?
tually had behind it all the weight of.
an offer by the Japanese government
It was made dlreot to Russia. No pow?
er aoted as an intermediary. The propo?
sition was. put forward tentatively and
unofficially, so that the Japanese gov?
ernment would be In a position to deny
any report that it was suing for peace.
The failure of ?these direct negotiation? '
has resulted In bringing Intervention
within a measurable distance. Foreign
Secretary Lansdowne's ' plea for arbitra?
tion yesterday evening at the Guild Halt:
banquet Is taken here to too a pointed
suggested to the United States and Franc?
that the time is approaching when Ute
powers must take some action. It can
bo definitely stated that Lord Lansdowne
made .his spoech. with full knowledge ,thai '
Japan will .not resent a proposition look?
ing to peace from.'the three powers?the;
United States, Franco and Great Britain.
There Is a definite lmprossion here that
the initiative will come from President
Roosevelt, though the notion would b?
What Hayashi Thinks.
In an Interview regarding ? the forogo
ing. Baron Hayashi, the Japanese minis?
ter, said: ,
"I should not be surprised to see the
three powers named,, or two of them,
take tho action suggested. Exactly upon
.what basin of a settlement peace could
bo. secured. It is at present impossible to
soo, but there Is not the. slightest doubt,
that 'combined representations, especial?
ly If led by .President Roosevelt, .would
have a far-reaching result between two,
countries, one of which was thorough?
ly defeated. It is comparatively easy
?to make peace In this case, as neither
side Is thoroughly defeated yot. Tho
prospects for the success of friendly in?
tervention have vastly increased. Sinco
the commencement of the war, the two
nations now respect each other to a'
degree never dreamed of before they met
In battle. That mutual respect is tho
most hopeful factor for peace, Japan
does not want to go on fighting forever.'
