Employes of the Road to Erect a Suit
able Monument to the Memory of
The President of the Road.
The management of the Southern
'railway has received a farge iniumher
of resolutions, uianiniously adopted
by the eipiNles in various depart
im;ents expressing,- a desire to ereet a
suitable iontiient to the neiory of
the late Samuel Spencer, president
of, the Soullihern a?ilway company.
WIo lost his life in an accident on
his line November 29, 1900. These
suggestions have met with the hearty
aPproval of the exectlive offleers,
from ithe president down, as it ap
pears that the employvs wish to make
the contributions freely and volun
farily and to such ait extent as would
insure the erection of a monument
comnictistirate with Mr. Spencer's
services in life. With this assurance
on the part of the employes, it has
beet deemed advisable to organize a
general committee to outline plans for
collecting these cont ribult ions, Whicl
would give each and every employc
an equal opportunity to contributN
to the fund. Following this idea, v
gen1eral committee has been formed
composed of men to represent th<
varions classes of employes.
This commniit tee has a1reed upon 1

fered the hig.hest offleial of the com.
pany, and lie canl proudly state thai
he contributed just as much to thi
donuient. in proportion to his earn
ine-s. as did the president. of the road
The plan is to allow each employe t
contribute on a percentage basis, ir
accordance with the following gradu.
