Trips to Be Taken Over Them In Au
tomobiles During the Rewnion of
Gonfederates May 6, 7p 8.
Jacksonville, Fla., ApriL-It Is safe
to say that hundreds, and possibly
thousands, of visitors to Jacksonville
during the week of the great Reunion
of Confederate Veterans and Sons of
Veterans, will make the trip from
their homes in automobiles. Numer
ous Inquiries have been received from
all parts of the country concerning
road conditions, and especially in re
gard to the practicability of reaching
other points in-Florida by automobile
frips from Jacksonville.
For the information of auto owners,
desirous of bringng their cars to
Jacksonville at the time- of the Re"
union, attention la called to the fact
that the city license books show that
there are over 2.000 licensed automo
bies in the city of JacksonvMi alone,
and during the past winter season
more than 2,500 motor-driven vehicles
have passed through Jacksonville en
route to varicus places on the Florida
peninsula. * Unless - there were fairly
good roads, leading from Jacksonville
to other sections of the State, there
would not have been one-tenth as
many cars in Florida this seasott. and
the home people of Jacksonville would
not have invested so heavily in motor
Duval county, of which Jacksonville
Is the county seat, was among the first
of the Florida counties to Issue road
Improvement bonds and to begin the
paving of Its highways with vitrified
paving brick and cdnerete. With a
pcrulation of cnly 75,000 in 1909, this
county issued road improvement bonds
that year to the amount of $1,000,000,
and it was provided that not more
than $250,000 was to be expended in
road constrpction each year for four
years. The bonds were sold ,at a
h.ndsome premium and the money
has all been expended on the roads of
-the' county, with a result that this
eounty now has some of -the very best
ja the South, and these roads are a
joy to the joyrider and to all persons
who use them.
Iut this Is pot all; for the Board of
Ccunty Commissioners Is at the pres
ent time working up Interest In a
proposition to Issue from -$2,000.000 to
$5,03000 g1ditional road Improve
ment bonds and construct a system of
paved roads and highways throughout
the county of Duval that will be a
model for 4l sections of the country.
Jacksonville Is only seventeen miles
ta a direct line from the Atlantic
Ocean, where there Is one of the finest
beache in the world, affording a spe
way four hundred feet in width and
twenty mies In length. Here is the
Ideal automobile course and It Is vis.
-ied by thousands of cars every year.
From the city to the seashore the
gounty has constructed a- magnificent
boulevard, paved with -vitrified brich
and with concrete- for the entire dis
'tance. liundreds of cars traverse this
Atlantie Bdecvard, as It Is known,
daily, and during the Reunion many
thousands of visitors will make the
trip by auto to the beach. Once os
-the seashore they will find much tc
-Interest them. Surf bathing will be
at its best during the .Reunion weeb
and many visitors from Interior points,
who have never before had the oppor
~a~yto plunge Into the big breakers
ofOld Ocean, will find the experience
a; novel and delightful one.
From Jacksonville to St. Augustine
the distanee by auto is 38 miles and
the trip is easily made, In two'houra
In facf. the record for the trip Is one
hour and nine minutes, but that Is al
most too fast for a trip to the oldesi
city in the United. States.
The road from South Jacksonvlle,
- on the oipposite side of the majestic
St. Johng river from the Reunion city
Is paved with shell for nine miles and
the going is good. Then cg~mes sill
miles of brick paving over which tlie
cars fairly skim along. The next four
miles. to the Duval county line; have
ndt ;yet been paved, but a temporary
surface of shavings has been provid
*ed. From the'county line to St. Au
gustine, a distance o't 18 miles, the
road is not yet paved but shell hai
been placed In the wheel rutsahd good~
time -can be made by the average car
Still another attractive trip, on the
-south- side of the St. Johns river, is
that tp Mandarin, a pretty little - vil
lage on the banks of the river,; aboul
fifteen miles from the city. This road
Is well paved with shefi for the entire
-distance and passes through some
very pretty orange groves, whiph .,ls
themselves are all attraction to all
At Mandarin there are a number ol
attractive homes, surrounded by pret
ty gardens, groves and farms. Thi!
village is the site of the former ,home
of telate ir. Harrlett . Beeche,
Stowe, the author of "Uncle Teom's
The city of Jacksonville has sixty
miles of paved streets and contracts
are now outstanding for several 'addi
*tional miles, work en which will stari
immediately after the reu.on, as It Is
the desire of the city authorities noi
to have the streets torn up ,while the
visitors are here.

Veterans Parade Last Day.
Jacksonville, Fla.-With the near
approach of May 6, interest in the
24th annual reunion of the United
Confederate Veterans' Association and
Sons of Confederate Veterans, centers
around the three parades, one each
day of the reunion. it has been dea
nitely decided that the first parade
will be that of the maids and sponsors,
and it will be given on the afternoon
of May 6.
This parade will be confined to au
tomobiles and carriages and all spon
'sors and makis of honor will be ad
mitted to it. The Jacksonville Re
union Association has decided that.
if possible, the parade of maids and
sponsors will 'be the finest spectacle
of the kind ever seezi.liathe southern
states. The route will be several miles
long and passes through the principal
residence and business sections of the
The parade of the second day. May
7. will be of the Sons of Confederate
Veterans and local military crganiza
tions. It is the present plan for the
Sons to march on foot, and the parade
will take in the business sections of
On the morning of May 8. the last
day of the reunion, thi annual parade
of the Confederate Vete;ans will be
held. Jacksodviue labors under a dis
advantage in stag-ing this parade that
no other reunion city has ever en
countered, that of securing horses.
There are very few available horses
in Jacksonville, and as.a resuft it has
been decided to make the parade a
combination between borsea, automo
biles and foot-marching. The local
association believes that it will be
possible for the commanders and their
staff officers to te provided with
mounts, but it is going to be a - dIE
cult matte t - ecure a suffcient num
ber ev th: !.. However, a united
effort b g d to secure all the
ount - in Jacksonville and
nearty - m n Florida and South
Arrangements for these'parades are
being worked out rapidly by'special
committees. MaJ. S. C. Harrison is
chairman of the committee that will
have charge of the Sons of 'Veterana
parade. He is being, assisted' by the
local camp of Sons' of Veterans, of
which Judge- John L. Dodge is comn

the Florida division, U. (C V., is, un
der the rules of the United Confeder

shal of the veterans parade, with Gen.
W. U. Sebring, chief aide. Gen. Inglis
wants a parade in which the. older vet

of their staffs as -possible..oa horse

worked out along ;$hese lines.
The social functions ef the reunion
will be about the same as have pre
vailed at other reunion cfties. Three
balls will be given: durligethe week,
one "or maids and -sponsors, one for
the Sons of Veterans and'- the other
for the vete!5ns 4hemselves. Gen.

represent the south in the social func
tions of the reunion.
A daneing pavilion will be erected
elose to the business sections of theA
.city, and It will be large enough to
accommodate the .reunion balls. -In
addition to the bells there will be a
number of events on the program for
the entertainment of official ladies.
Chief among these is a trip to the sea
shore, and an excursion or two on the
St. Johns river. Some two hundred
young men have volunteered their
services as escorts for the visiting la
dies, and everything points to a most
enobe week for all who may par
ticipate in the social functions and
the annual parades.

Brilliant Fetes Planned For
May 6, 7 and 8 To, 3e Memorable
Dates in Florida's Metropolie
Large Crowd Assured the Reunion
Jacksonville, Fla.-Southern social
circles are again tiking an Interest
in the great social, military and sen
timental annual meeting that brings
together a crowd of from 75,000 to
150,000 people to do honor to the ex
Confederate soldler-the reunion:of
the survivors of the Confederate arm
The reunion Is to be held this year
at Jacksonville Fla., May 6, 7. 8 in
clusive. It is the Ant time that the
ex-Confederates have selected Florida
as the reunion state, and -ueoni
interest attaches to the meeting-he
and throughout the South. Owing to
the comparatively early date of the
reunion, the divisions. brigades and
camps made their appointments of
sponsors and maids early, and these
ladies compose the social side of-the
reunion. They are known as the o5
eial ladIes of the 1eeting entertained
as such, and courted by the entire so
cial fabric of the South.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans.
following In the footsteps of their ft
thers. maintain organizations In ev
ery Southern state, and hold their re
unions on the same dates. They ap
point sponsors and maids of honor.
The two organizations, closely allied,
therefore, send to each Confederate
reunion severast hundred ofcial ladies,
selected from the best families of the
South. that stand high In the social
scale in their communities.
Mapping opt a social program.
therefore. for a Confederate reunion
Is a task that demands the best of
talent in 'the entertalninen$ line.
There must be d"ners,. receptions,
balls, trips to points of Interest around
the reunion cities and anything else
in the line of social entertainment the
committee may devise. The crown
ing event of the week in socleti,
h'owever. Is the annual ball for nialds
and sponsors. It the reunion Is hold
In a city where a hall large enough
to accommodate several hundred danc
ing couples at once can not be se
cured, a dancing pavilion is construct
id for the occasion This pavilion
consists of a rge canvas .tent, well
floored and lighted; it Is also supplied
with comfortable seats on the grand
stand order, where several thousand
spectators may witness the ball. If
a reader has not seen one of these an
nual balls at a Confederate reunion"
he has but limited idea of its size and
brilliancy. Nothing to equal It in
splendor can be seeft in the United
States, nless i be the inauguration
ball at the nytional capital, now fallen,
Into social desuetude. If the inaugu
ration ball is put out of the contest.
the annual ball of the Confederate re
union, at which the maids and spon
sors hold sway. Is the greatest social
function of the United States.
The social side of the Jacksonville
reunion will be participated In by rep
resentatives of all Southern States,
the border states and a few western
e~mmonwealths. There are sixteen
state divisions of the United Confed
erate Veterans' Association, gs fol
lows: South Carolina, North Carolina.
Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland,
LousanUa, Tennessee, Florida, Ala
barna, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky,
Texas, Ok~ahoma, Missouri and Ar
kansas. Each state sends large dele
gations of young women to the re
union, selected with regard to their
social standing at home. in addition
to the state delegations, the com
mander-In-chief has his own official
lades, chosen from the South at large.
There are three departments, known
as the Army of Northern Virginia de
partment. Army 'of Tennessee depart
ment and Trans-Mississippi depart
ment. Each department appoints
maids andsponsors and sends them to
all reunions. The scope of country'
covered by these many organisations
hai about halt the population, of the
United States; hence, the interest in
a Confederate reunicn is always wide
spread. Society circles In all of this
territory are interested In the Jack
'sonville reunion, and the event will
bring here cne of the largest crowds
o young people ever assembled in
~he South. Florida appeals to the
.young, because oi its flowers and Its
wonders-its pcetry, Its songs and. its
attractive history. Rivers and ocean,
gulf and bays bare Interest all their
own. The palm and the pine. liveoak
and holly, and a hundred other forest
trees that abound throughout the
tate as nowhere else on the conti
ent. invest Florida with an interest
as wide as the nation. Greater inter
est attaches to the Jacksonville re
union than to any recent meeting of
the Confederates, and preparations are
being made to entertain a large
crowd of .peoplei In May.

about 85,000. The hasessed value 8f
