liminary arrangements for ?i'e cele?
bration of tne fiftieth anniversary of
the battle of Gettysburg, to be held
on that historic field during the first
four daye of next July, are steadily
go:ng forward, and thus far nearly all
the states of the Union have sppro pri?
nted funds to transport their veterans
to the scene, or will take such action
abortiv. Arrangements are also being
made by the War I>epartmi-nt for the
construction of the sp at tenfed ally
for the accommodation of the 40.00J
veterans expected to attend.

Colone. Beltler said yesterday that1
letters had been sent to all the <Vjv-I
trnors throughout the country, re?
questing that the approximate number
of honorably discharged veterans of
the war. whether Union or Confeder?
ate, living within their jurisdiction,
and who would probably attend the
ceremonies, be secured and forwarded:
to the commission without delay. So1
fnr several re plies have been re-j
calved. Indicating that fully 40.0001
men will encamp In Gettysburg on thej
day the celebration is :n. It was
also stated that at the meeting to bei
h--ld In Harrlsbur.,- Tuesday arrange-;
merits will be made for the transports-j
tion of this great body of men. and
that the Heading Hallway has slgnl
Bed i's intention of double tracking
Its line from Carlisle to Gettysburg
before the date of tS^e celebration. |
The movement for the proper ob- J
Survance of the fiftieth anniversary of
the battle was launched May 13. 1309.
when the legislature approved an act i
creating a commialon to provide for
Its fitting recognition, at the same j
time extending an invitation to all j
the other States to participate in the
celebration. On October 13 and 14.
1910. the commission and a number
of Governors and representatives from
other States met at Harriaburg and
Gettysburg and agreed upon a plan of I
action. .State after State then made j
adequate appropriations for the trans- i
portstlon of Its veterans on June 14,
1911. the State of Pennsylvania ap
proprlated the sum of $160.000 for that
i Jrpose.

Parle, October lt.?The funeral mon- !
ument. In the form of an Egyptian
Sphinx, for the tomb of Oscar Wilde,
by the English sculptor. Jacob Ep?
stein, which the curators of Pere La?
ch else pronounced unfit to be placed
within the precincts of the cemetery
because of Its undraped nudity and
consequent lnapproprlateness In S>
burial place of religious character, will
nevertheless be sccepted by the Pre?
fecture of the Department of the Seine
and duly Installed without any mate?
rial modification of the work.
This result Is largely due to the IfY
eral-minded decision of the Prefect ot
Police. M. Lepine. and Is keenly
apprdfliated by French tdbnlrers of
Oscar Wilde's literary woran
The statue was pie sea over the,
grave some ttme ago, but was shrouded
in accordance with orders given by the
curators. A few days back Mr. Ep?
stein flatted the cecnetei y with the
Comtess* de Bremen?, surbor of s
book on Wilde, snd tore down the
sheet in order to snow hor that his
work was In no way offensive. A wide?
ly chroulated remark made by Ma, to
the effect that the statue should In
no way be altered, and that If the
authorities mutilated It tn any way be
would sue them for $l?.e&? damages,
may possibly have weighed somewhat

we certainly have not solicited a penny from them. The

Colonel Roosevelt yesterday, gave out I
to-night a statement saying in part: |
"Governor Hadley Introduced at the;
Republican National Convention a mo?
tion to take out of the temporary roll
the Taft delegates and substitute
Roosevelt delegates In certain con?
tested states These numbered about
seventy-eight delegatea Colonel
Roosevelt sent for me and asked me to
introduce a resolution limiting the
number to the thirty-four delegates
from Washington. California, Arizona
and Texas. I refused to do this with?
out Governor Hadley's consent, because
he bad presented the motion.
"I went to tne convention and saw
Governor Uadley. and Governor Had
iew himself wrote the amendment to
his motion, which I introduced.
"The motion of Governor Hadley was
to strike from the temporary roll the
Taft delegates and substitute Roose
, salt delegates In their stead. My
i amendment provided that no delegate
whose right to s sest la the conven?
tion was questioned by Governor Had
ley'a motion should have a right to
vote on the selection of a member for
the credentials committee.
"Colonel Roosevelt la bis statement
of Saturday mskss ms responsible for
Governor Hadley's mot loa, and states
that my motion charged that the Taft I
J delegates were stolen. The resolution'
j does not so state, and there Is no pos-'
! slbility of placing upon it such s cea-J
j structlon.
"Governor Hadley himself said to the
convention la urging adoption of his
motion:
" 'I don't say that these charges arc1
true. But true or false, let us meet
them here. J
