There can tin no denying the fact
that the recognition of the great
ncblovement of the admiral ha been
tardy. It Is well known, however,

ly the cruel contempt with which the
fearless navigator was treated In Iris

Judgments, nud It has done so In the

The wonder of hi achievement Is
universally recognized and the worlds
both old and new, have testified In

The custom of preparing efflglea In
stone, so that the names nnd achieve
ment of a nation' heroes may be
passed on to posterity, finds Its or
igin In most ancient times. It la but
natural that this custom should have
been followed In the cnio of Colum
bus Today we find statues erected
to the discoverer n Italy, Spain and
France, and In nvany nil of the
countries of the new world.
At Oenou, which city claim the
honor of being the birthplace of Co
lurabus, there has been erected a very

the foundation had been laid a far

In tho new world nearly every
country has testified In recognition
of tbe deed of Columbus by tho erec
