AND GEN. HAMPTOh
VENERABLE SOLDIER HONOR1
MEMORY OF GREAT CHIEFTAIN
Beautiful Inscriptions on the Confed
erate Monument Admired by the
Soldier of Blue and Gray.
Yesterday afternoon at rine iookiin,,
gentleman, with g-ray hair but stal
wart figure and the appearance of
youthful vigor, stood for a full hall
hour gazing uipon the e<questrian sta
tue of Gen. Wade Hampton oil th<
Capitol green. le walked around the
haindsome monument time an( again
and it was evident that his gaze was
not that of an ordinary park pedes
trian or curious onlooker.
The man who spent the half hour
in silent conininion with the great
Con federate eavalr-Y leader, in bronze,
was Maj. Ch:n-les Waite of Culpe
per. Va., a man who knew Wade
Hampton ill the 60's-rought -with
him in Viwrinia-was with him in
t.he battle of Manassas----and knew
hii intimately for years after the
war wIe le IplesetIlled South Car
olina in tlie ITnited Sta,te,s seIIate-e
and lie knew him, as all men knew
him, as the peer of any main the
Soith ever produced.
''Oh, but it did me gOod-brought
back memories of tle plast-to again
look upon the features of that grand
111an,'' said Maj. Waite. ''Hampton
was a great man and the boys who
wore the gray loved him. le was a
great. general., and a great and grand
man in every way.'
Mtt. Waite walked away from the
Hampton statue and stopped at the
Confederate monument in front of
the state capitol. Another man with
gray hair was there. The two walk
ed around the base of the monument
and read with grea-t care and extreme
interest in iniseriptions on the four
sides. With ole acelaii the t woi men
pronloilnced the inscriptions (le most
beautiful they had ever seen earved
upon slone. Tmr1ether tihey -ave a
parting look at the monument and
started to walk away.
''No finer English was ever con
tained inl the writings of any nian,''
declared tho second man, ''and I
propose to have itihose inscriptions
eopied atid printed inl papers baek
home.'' And this man, too, saw duty
in the four years' war between the
states, but on the other side. He was
from fie bleak New EnI'land shores
and fought. bravely against men
whose memory this Ioniumnent was
erected to perpetlate. Thllerv was no
bitteiness in his tone and the evi
deit. respect with which he look
ed upon tihie IIIoIIII mnInt erected by
South Carolina women and his 1e
marks of appreciation of the beauti
fiul sentences that appear upon those
marble sides mighlt have marked him
as a vetrian ii~P tho ''Lost Ca use.'
M~a.j. Wanite hiimself declared that
lie lua iiever before road siuch bean
tifiil senltences, and added: ''I want
those inis.criptn ins prilated in my~
home papers. Th'ley will bring tears
to the eyes of many of the 'hoys'
back in Virginia, and( cani but be ap
preciatfed lby all who read t hem.'

ARRAY OF BATTLB SHIPS
ON HAMPTON ROADS.
Never ye has Norfolk of old the
ports of naval rendezvous witnessed
s4 inposing anl assemiblage of war
eraft as now lies in the harbor be
tween Old Point Comfort and the
1'0xposition IGrounds. Though but the
advanee gitard of the great gat-her
ing of fleets that will be here dur
ing the Exposition, the fleet is im
pressive, not only for its numbers
aid power, but by reason of the fact
that it is wholly Amerlean. Sixteoen
first class battle-ships strumg along
a lilne extendinlg three miles, with a
uniher of secondary craft make
utp this siltpetidolus arrav of Ithe na
tion's occal power, preseiting a
spectacle to stir tite soul of patriot
ismt. Otherships are daily lengthen
ing this umjestic line, a-id itever be
fore have Americans been privileg
ed to witiess the power of the na
tion in suelh compaet concourse. This
Fleet constit.ites the greatest ass6m
bhage of American war ships ever
ltell. It is the great new navy on
parade; the new na.vy with which the
nation has assumed the second place
among the navajl powers of the earth.
'Tlie fleet is maned with over five
hundred officers and thirteen thous
and men. Twenty abreast this splen
did host of American seamen on the
march would take two hours to pass
a given point.
The passage through this formida
le line on one of the many ferry
boats that ply ont Norfolk haibor,
will arouse the amtiazed 'terest of the
dutllest, and one feels that the nation
cIM i never go wrong while such ships

sea gates. There is already. a g-"rand
