The Riohmoud Times says: 'The
Danville Register ?seem? to have a spite
against Hon. W. A. Jones. We clip
the following from the editorial enl?
atan? of the Register "
"Hon. Willie Anxious Jones, late
senatorial aspirant, is contemplating a
candidacy to succeed Gov. Tylet in the
election of 1901 for the governorship.
At leaet, the Richmond Times, which
booeted Mr. Jones' senatorial confer?
ence with all it? boosting powers, an?
nounce? that ' it ia stated by per?
sona who are auppoaed to know that
he (Mr. Jone?) expects to become
a candidate for governor ' two years
benoe. And surely % man who en?
joya hi? confidence ought to know. The
Timee add? further that 'There ia hard?
ly any doubt that Mr. Jonea ha? made
up bis mind to aspire to ?nooeed Gov?
ernor Tyler. ' 'Aspire' is very good by
the way, for truly many are called (or
think they are), but few are ohoeen. It
is a long time off yet, and Mr. Jone?
will have ample time to give the mat?
ter consideration suob a weighty propo?
sition deserves. ' '
Commenting on the foregoing ?the
Times says :
' 'We are no champion of Mr. Jones'
nor are we onampioning the candidacy
of any other man. But we do not see
what he haa done to deserve such un?
kind mitloism as this. He is a demo?
crat in good standing and haa made a
useful member of Congress. If he
ohooae now to stand for the Senate, or
if be shall ohooae hereafter to become a
candidate for the gubernatorial nomi?
nation he has the right to
do so and the right to expeot that his
candidacy shall be respectfully treated
by tbe leaden and newspaper? of his
own party. We say this much, not in
tbe Intereat of Mr. Jones, but in the in?
ter??! of fairness."
All of wblob wonld seem to indicate
that If Congressman Jones enten the
gubernatorial race, he will probably find
"Jordan a hard road" to travel.

Monument to be Erected at Virginia
Lexington, Va., June. 2:1. ? At the
alumni meeting of the Virginia Mili?
tary Intitute yesterday, there was pre?
sented the desigu of the proposed uitm
ument to the memory of the young
heroes who nobly gave their lives for
the Lost Cause, and to those who sur?
vived of that youthful band of the
memorable battle of Newmarket, Va.,
whose bravery will ever live green in
the memory of the cadets of the past,
present, and future and incite them to
The proposed monument is to be
known as the "Battle and Battalion
Monument. Virginia Military Institute
Cadets, Newmarket, May 15, 1864,"
and ia to be made from a model by one
of the gallant members of that band
who took part in that battle and was a
member of Company C?Sir Moses Eze
kiel, of Rome, Italy, who haa gained
fame abroad and at home as an artist,
and who now offers this, one of his
masterpieces, aa a memorial to his dead
and liviDg comrades. To quote bia
words : "Aa orderly s?rgeaut of Com?
pany C, Virginia Military Institute, 1
feel it almost a duty to write and say
that, if you intend putting up a memo?
rial to my fallen comrades in the battle,
I hope to be the means of rendering my
tribute to their memory in the work of
my hands in my own art 1 would be
willing and glad to give my time and
labor and art toward it. "
The monument is to be in bronze,
heroic size, and ia a female figure, clad
in nia'l, mourning, seated upon a piece
of breastwork. Her foot rests upon a
broken cannon, overgrown with ivy,
and abe holds a reversed lance in her
handa. The atafoe in seated posture
is 7 feet high, the oval baae is 4 feet
6 inches by 8 feet ; the whole to t>e
placed on a solid block of Virginia
granite 7 feet high and D feet by :i feet
? inchea. The pedestal ia to be placed
on a living rock baae on tbe western
corner of the parade ground? at tbe
Virginia Military Institute, the top
of Jwhich ia 16 feet above the
general level ; this to be surrounded
by a symmetrical mound loo feet In di?
ameter, enciroled by a walk and drive?
way. The face of the monument is to
be turned toward and overlooking the
graves where sleep the boya who were
killed in the charge that won tbe battle,
and at the same time the entire monu?
ment will be in unobstructed view from
the cadet barra- kb and every point of
the parade ground and the camp ground
by it, having for a background the west?
ern mountains and the sunset eky, and
one of the moat magnificent views in the
Valley of Virginia. Bronze platea will
inclose? the pedestal, properly inscribed
The cost of all expenses attached to
the proposed monument is estimated to
be $5,000. Of tbia, $3,000 will be for
casting in bronze and the remainder for
carriage and completion at the Virgin
ginia Military Institut?. Of this
amount $1,000 has already been raised
by the efforts of Misa Margaret Free
land, of Lexington,Va .and Hon. Chas.
J. Faulkner, of Martinsburg, W. Va ,
whose interest and enthusiasm, almost
unaided, have accomplished the above.
Three hundred dollars additional
has been received from N. B. McDow?
ell and his aged mother, of Charlotte,
N. C.. they having had a brother and
son, W. H. McDowell, killed in the
battle. In the same mail were received
contributions from Charlea Broadway
Kouas, of New York, and William
Wheatley, of Washington, DC. At
that rate, the amount necessary to com?
plete the work will be forthcoming ere
long, and the monument nnveiled next
anniversary day. It is hoped that such
will be the case.
