Mo severer criticism of President
McKinley has come from any quarter
than the one contained in the Rich?
mond Times of Friday last. The edi?
tor of the Times is an open, a fair ad
Ternary; a fast, unfailing friend.
When be makes disparaging remarks,
yon may most oertaiuly know that he
sincerely believes be bas good reason
to oomplain. In view of this generous
sentiment that inspires the editorial
criticism of tbe Times, very special
significance U to be ascribed to the
following extract from the editorial re?
ferred to :
The Times believes that William Mc?
Kinley has a warm and g?nerons heart,
and tbat he is earnest and sincere in
his desire to preserve his country in a
position of honor and to advance the
interests and prosperity of his fellow
citizens. That being so, Tbe Times
is glad to approve of bis actions when?
ever they deserve approval, but The
Times does not shnt its eyes to his de?
linquencies when they are evident and
seen of all men. The blemish upon
Mr. McKinley's administration?and it
is a blemish that soils it from end to
end?is his time-serving timidity and
play to the gallery. Instead of going
rtraight along executing tbe laws, and
leaving criticism and consequences to
themselves, he has one eye always open
to what the politicians will say, while
the other gnldes the ship of State in an
unsteady course that takes its reckoning
from ward meetiegs and sensational
We donbtad for a long time whether
the statement? published from day to
day that no telegrams were allowed to
come from Manila tbat would tend to
injure tbe administration were trne.
But we can doubt it no longer It is
perfectly evident to us now that a cen?
sor of telegrams has been pat in office
there, who receives every dispatch that
comes over the wire and prohibits any
that in his opinion can tend to operate
against the popularity iu America of
tbe McKinley administration. The
President's attention has been so re?
peatedly and so pointedly called to this
outrage that be oannot fail to know of
it in all of its enormity, and yet be
permits that condition of things to
stand. Mr. McKinley knows better
than to allow this thing, yet bis con?
stitutional timidity and time-serving
disposition lead him into putting op
with it to the lastiog shame of bis ad?
- This is a severe arraignment, but who
can say that It is undeserved- That
MoKi-ley is a patriot and a high
minded American oitizen no one oan
deny, but that he is aooessllbe to the
lnsidoons appeals and seduoements of
ambition is equally apparent He la
eagerly anxlons to be renominated and
re-eleoted to the Presidency-, and it
would perhaps be asking too much of
frail human nature to require him to
stem? his oourse clear of all the demot?
ing demands upon him to take cogniz?
ance of the forcee and Influences
that favor his re-election. That
he has taken cognizincea of these
forces and influences is most ap?
parent. There is a big, a great big,
political oanvass now brewing for the
prize of the Presidency in the election
of next year.
There is much talk of amendment
to tha federal constitution. Accordin)
so tha notions of Tbe Free Lanoe th<

Presidency six years, and make it in
alliglble ; that it is to say, presorlbe
that no President should be eligible to
a second term. Tbe history of the
country has shown that the actions of
Ina Oblf Executives have been too of?

path of duty towards that course which

There is almost equally divided sen?
timent in the criticisms of the pre?f
apon the assignment of Admiral Sch
ley to the Sonth Atlantio Statiou.
Sime warm admirers of the hero of the
Spanish war think that Admiral Sch
ley's assignment to tbe South Atlantic
Station is a slight put upon the great
naval commander. It is not easy tc
ascertain whether this is so ; but one
thing Is easy of ascertainment ,and thai
is tbe fact, tbat Admiral Schley hat
shown the true character of the Amer?
ican ' 'sailor" In uncomplainingly ac?
cepting any assignment that might be
made of him. The people of the South
are very jealous of the characters of
Admiral Sohley and General Fitzhugh
Lee. That the envy of the old army
officers has prevented a fair recogni?
tion of the services of Fill Lee, is ap?
parent to a blind man. That the ?mi
green-eyed malevolence has denied to
Admiral Sohley, because be is a south?
ern man, the position to which he is
entitled, is equally manifest Neverthe?

is considered a sufficient excuse for

HISTORY OF THK MONUMENT.
The seven men in wnoas memor
the monument was today unvellet
were members of Mosby's battalion ant
were executed just 35 years ago by thi
order.it is alleged of General Ouster
The movement to promote this ob
jeot had Its origin about three yean
ago in the minds of a numbei
of the most prominent survivors o
Mosby's old oommand. At this time i
committee was formed, of which W
Ben. Palmer, of Richmond, was chair
man, and Charles E Riedler, of Haiti
more, secretary. This committee thet
went to work to secure donations
Last spring It announced the collection
of the fund, and the oommittee cam?
to Front Royal to consult with the
town authorities, the William Rlobard
son Camp of Confederate Veterans and
the Ladles' Warren Memorial Associa?
tion as to a suitable sight. The mem?
orial association has charge of the
Prospect Hill Cemetery and offered tc
donate a site, with a promise to tak?
into their care the monument when
erected This offer was accepted.
The location is an ideal one and i
situated just on the brow of the hllj
overlooking the town and at the head
of the terraced stone steps which leads
to the highest point cf the cemetery.
It is one of the most prominent spots
of the gior?d and is in fnll view from
all the surrounding country. The mon
nnient is a plain granite ?haft IS feet In
height, resting on a marble pedestal 5
feet square, on which are inscribed tho
names of the mirtyred men, with the
words: Dulce et decorum est pro put
SOME HlaTOEICAL KKMINIsi T.N< ES.
The occasion recalls to mind some
interesting historical remtnlsoenees
On September .'.i, 1894, the seven men
? Carter, Overby, Live, AndSJtwOa,
Jones anil Willie To whom the mon?
ument is erected were members of the
Mosby's famous partisan battalion
Just s ?nth of the town, on thtit day,the
company of Mosby's command to
which these men belonged attacked a
wagou train aud wero surprised to End
they had eucounteied a large Federal
force, a part of Caster's brigade. The
company extricated itself without dif
fioulty, and in the ?haip tight that fol?
lowed theso seven men wero captured.
Ouster charged Mosby with having
fired on his ambulances and ordered the
prisoners to lie executed. Three were
aocordtugly shot just smith of the
town and were hanged on a walnut
tree north of Front Royal on a lull
overlooking the Shonaudoah The sixth
?Rhodes a boy of 1? -was dragged
through the streets by two calvarymen
past his mother, who begged for his
life, and shot to death a few moment?
afterward?. The seventh?Willis?was
hanged in Rappahanui < k c unty about
su miles from here.
The executions were attended with
much harshness and barbarity and call?
ed forth a burst of iudigtiatum all OTSS
the South, in retaliation aud to pre
vent the recurrence of such treatment
of priioiiers of war, Mosby ordered to
be ?hot an equal number of Caster's
men who he had taken prisoners. This
waa done aud hangings ceased.

ex-Confedeaates was chielly In the
hands of Mr?. George 0, Davis, proal
