Colfax Riot Mon
Fitting Ceremonies Commemorating
Historical Event Carried Out
Between April Showers
After half a century there was
unveiled in the Colfax cemetery
on last Wednesday, a monument
recently erected to the memory
of the three men who on Easter
Sunday, April 13, 1873, shed their
life's blood in a battle in Colfax
in order that white supremacy
might reign supreme. The de
tails of this memorable occasion
are yet fresh in the memory of
the older citizens of Grant parish
and Louisiana, land having been
very recently recited in these
columns, it is only necessary
here to say that the unfortunate
event of half a century back has
been the means of a more com
plete and better understanding
between the rases.
Inlement weather marred the
unveiling, but in spite of a down
pour several hundred men, wo
men and children stood at close
attention during the ceremony,
' which was beauty persQnified in
its simplicity. Promptly at 11
o'clock a procession headed by a
r band formed at the LeSage hotel
and marched to the cemetery.
There the Colfax high school
awaited in a body. Arriving at
the monument, Mrs. M. A. Harris
of Newport, Ky., and Miss Mary
Hadnot were accorded a seat on
one side of the monument, while
Mr. Overton Harris and wife and
daughter, also of Kentucky, were
seated on the opposite side. The
surviving veterans were.then ar
ranged near the speakers stand
just off the base 6f the monu
ment. At a given signal the
band played and the school
marched around the monument
dropping flowers around the base
as they passed. Passing in view
of the speakers stand the school
formed in L shape and sang
"Tenting on the Old Camp
Ground." Judge J. A. Wiliiams,
as master of ceremonies address
ed the assembly in his usual hap
py manner, and at the close of
his remarks introduced Mrs. Har
ris and Miss Hadnot, the wife
and daughter of two of the mar
tyrs, who would unveil the monu
ment. Deftly untieing and pull
ing the cords holding it in place,
the veil gently and slowly un
folded and revealed to the on
lookers a beautiful narble shaft
bearing the inscription:
In Loving Rememberaace
Erected to the Memory of the Heroes
James West Hadnot
Who fell in the Colfax Riot fghting
for White Supremacy
April 18, 1873I
The unveiling being completed,
Judge L. L. Hooe in an address
reviewed incidents following the
civil war and leading up to the
Colfax Riot, and paid a glowing
tribute to the men who, took part
in that event. He *as followed
by Mr. A. M. Pyburn, an attor
ney of Alexandria. A heavy
rain was threatening as he rose
, to speak, but he made a splendid
n and fitting address for the occa-,
1 sion, although a hard April
a shower caused him to curtail his
-I remarks. The rain getting-hard
er an address by Hon. Cleveland
1I Dear, district attorney, was
t omited, and the program at the
s cemetery abandoned.
v Proceeding in the rain to the
a large pecan tree in front of Mr.
e R. S. Cameron's residesce, the
d program was concluded by the
e dedication of this tree also as a
e memorial, it having afforded
shelter and protection to those
I participating in the fight of '78.
- The dedication address was de
s livered in a down pour by Mayor
1 A. G. Buford, concluding the out
t of doors program.
The crowning event of the day
was a 2 o'cloc& luncheon at the
I LeSage hotel in honor of the vet
r erans attending the unveiling,
) at which 24 veterans were enter
tained, together with 74 of their
relatives and friends. The af
fair was under the supervision of
I Mr. S. J. Simmons, of Simmons'
" Cafe, and was a spread of viands
that only an experienced caterer
" knows how to prepare. Judge
" Williams presided at the banquet
as "toastmaster, and introduced
District Attorney Dear as the
after dinner speaker. Mr. Dear
" acquitted himself most credit,
ably itian oratorical effort of lau
dation of the veterans present i
which struck a popular chord 4
with his audience and he wasa
frequentl, applauded in the I
course of his speech. Judge 4
P Hooe also respondedto the toast- i
master on behalf of Miss Mary I
Hadnot, who felt too deeply the i
honor accorded her father to at,
tempt to express her feelings in
words. Mrs. Harris and her son, I
Mr. Overton Harris, responed in I
a few words of appreciation and
thanks for the monument erected
to the memory of husband and
father. One of the veterans
made a short speech voicing the
sentiments and appreciation of I
the entertainmen"t and great hon
or accorde4 the declining sur
vivors of the Colfax Riot, thus
bringing to a close a program
that for nicety of arrangement
and appropriateness in commem
oration of a historical evernt will
be long remembered by the those.

The clean-up campaign inan
gurated last week has resulted in
Colfax presenting the cleanest
appearance to visitors and resi
dents alike that the town has
shown for a long time. bMore
trash and garbage was- disposed
of than in any previous clean-up
eamlpaign, and conments have
been heard freely of the'sucem
of the campaign. Possibly the
notice from the board of health
that a committee of ladies woold
assist in making an inspection
gave considerable impetus to the
work. If that be true, we Inove
