OUR WASHINGTON LETTER..
Justice for the South in Payment Wax
Special Cor. Herald and News.
Washington,. Nov. 21.-Prospects
are bright for the passage, during the
approaching session of Congress, of
the omnibus claims bill ctkrrying large
amounts for the payment of wai
claims in every State in the South.
The justice of these claims is not de
nied. Many of them have been pass
0d upon by the Court of Claims and
the amount due from the Unitee
States adjudicated by that tribunal
The failure to pass the bill at the lasi
session was due to the efforts of th(
Republican leaders in Congress t<
keep down the total of appropriations
as much as possible for effect in the
Congressional campaign. They piled
up extravagant appropriations foi
other objects but refused t.o authoriz
the payment of the just debts of the
- government. The Southern men ii
Congress will also make a determine
effort to secure the passage, during
the approaching session, of the bill
providing for the refunding of thi
millions of dollars illegally collecte
in the Southern States during the wai
through the cotton tax. This mone
is in the Treasury but it can not. b<

proposition to have the Congress in

mystery surrounding the ancin
muounid builders was discovered re(
cently in one of a series of hills alon;
ilWe Illinois river, in that state. Th,
find'' shows traces of handicraf
of past ages, and the bones0 of thos,
who wrough t it. Several skeleton
were exhumed more thani eight fce
long, also pieces of remarkable pot
tery, heads and curious implements
Under the bones of' the ancient deal
were found vases, the largest of ivhiec
are capable of holding more than tw,
gallons, while under a skull was ur
earthed a bowl, in the center of whiel
is .a well fashioned figure of a King
seated upon a crude throne. It is be
lieved b)y scientists that these bone
may be those of a great leader of th
race that once ruled this portion o
Strangest of all articles found wvitl
the bones wer'e implements that ar
apparently made of bamboo, some o
them evidently shaped for paurpose
of weaving. Countless beads wer
found in the mound of a strange mat

Another interesting and euriou
''find'' is a shell shape dish wvith

A.no doubt that it was carved, even thi
teeth of the wolf gleaming fromn .il

Thousands of persons are being at
tracted to the scene of excavation b;
the news of the wvonderful discoveries
' The soil of the mound has never bee:
disturbed and to this fact is attribul
ed the marvelous preservation of th
things taken from it.
Eminent archaeologists are' unani
mos in t he opinion that the moun,
is a pre-historie burying ground great-,
er in extent and more perfectly pre
served than any yet discovered, and
is a valuable contribution definitely
.settling many mooted points.
An effort is being made not only
to secure this remarkable "find'' in
its- entirety for the Jamestown Ex
position, but the resilts' of investiga
tion determining the history of this
race and extinct race of people.
The Statue to Hampton.
The sculptor's idea as brought out
in the figure is that of a commander
I hs lie is being cheered by his men.
I General Hamp'ton is represented with
hat oMY and sword at salute, riding
along in front of his army, while the
soldiers express their confidence and
love for their leader. The whole atti
tude, as well as the face, is expressive
of pride, the shoulders thrown back,
the chest out and the eyes afire. The
praneing steed typifies the same con
Cption. General Hampton was a su
perb horseman and always rode a good
steed, and old soldiers say the artist
I has done both man and horse justice.
Tihe whole statue, man and horse, is
15 feet 5'1-2 inches high, being one
and one-half times life size. If stand
I ing, the man's figure would be 9 1-2
The pedestal is 13 1-2 feet high,
making the total height of the monu
lment 29 feet.
The pedestal is of two parts, upper
- and lower. The upper part is of gray
I variegated granite from the Vosgs
mountains of France, highly polished.
It, rests on two steps of Winnsboro
granite, surrounded by a curving
i mound covered with sod. The whole
is surrounded by curbing of Winns
3 boro granite and at each angle is an
E ornamental railing of bronze, special

I this monument.

S Mr. Ruckstuhl is himself a native of
tFrance, having been born in those
Csame Vosgs mountains from which
shis beautiful marble came. When one
t' year old his parents, who were of Al
satiain descent, came to this country
and the sculptor's boyhood wvas spent
in St. Louis. His home now is in
INew York city, but lie has visited
0Paris frequently and speaks French as
fluently as lie does English. He has
'taken great pains with this work and
has personally supervised t.he placing
of every stone in the monument and
a thle erection of the statue itself.

C New'. York, Novembier 20.-A cable
dispatch from President Roosevelt (le
s clining to suspend his order discharg
a ing the inegro) troops of the Twenty
s fifth. regiment unless the facts as
e known to him are shmowni to be false,
'but expressing his willingness to hear
enew facts bearing upon the ease, was
.made public~ today by Gilchrist Stew

S Mr. Stewart cab)led Roosevelt at
Ano,Panama, as follows:
"'Republicani county committee un
Canimousl& denounces discharge of col
ored soldiers. Parsons, Oleott, Bien
Snett, committee, p)etitioninig depart
ment Newapnes emphat.ic. Dowel
opients and new facts warrant an im- P1
mediate suspension of order.' w
The president's reply contained the c
''Unless facts as known to in are
shown to be false, the order will under at
no circum'stances be revoked, and I N
shall not for one moment consider sus
pending it on a simple allegation that
there are new facts until these new
facts are laid before ie. Inform any
persons having new facts to have
them in shape to lay before me at my dc
return, and I will then consider
whether or not any further action by I
me is called for.
''Tmeodore Roosevel.'' fi
The presideit's view is that the nc- i
gro soldiers, in reifusing informition r1
necessary to the apprehension of the oj
min who coimlitted criminal acts at
Brownsville, Tex., struck at the very ti
heart of military justice and discip
lne. Had the white froops done this
sane thinir. they wvould have suffered
tle same pelnalty.
Taft Responsible for Abeyance Order.
Fort leno, Okla., November 20.
Tlie order from Washington to hold
in abeyance the order discharging the
negro troops without honor, did not N
come as a complete surprise at Fort t
l?eno. Military men who have watch- R
ed tihe extent of the public feeling so
against the diseiarge orders have be- i
lieved that the war department would el
delay the carrying out of the project
until a further investigation was
made. It is believed here that See
retary Taft is responsible for the 9
abeyance of the order. During his re
cent trip of inspection of the military cl
posts of tile southwest, it is under- o
stood tlat General McCaskey, head b
of' tlhe department of Texas, made the S
