WHERE ARE THE FUNDS?
Who has not hoard of Lincoln monument
associations, and who has not contributed
something a dimo or a dollar to Lincoln
monument funds ? It will soon bo four years
sinco the as.irissln's bullet handed that greot
man's body over to tho grave, and during tho
greater part of"lhatong interval the pcoplo
of every state, city, town and village, hnvo
ecn importuned to givo, give, give, that
monuments might rise to honor his mcjnory.
Various jihnis of shafts and monuments wcro
perfected; lithographic elevations of thosame,
somo gorgeous, some plain and unpretending,
wcro ovorywhero exhibited; associations wero
formed; receivers of contributions wero
named in almost every county; and, actuated
by a sincere sorrow for tho Illustrious dead,
everybody contributed his mite, with ready
cheerfulnes. Milch monev was cortalnlv
raised ; but wjicro aro tho monuments? whero
tho money? No monument has been
erected, and tho furvrc, oven tho interest, tho
monument movement created, has died away.
Where is the money that those months and
years of organized begging accumulated?
Has a s utlklont sum been raised ? If so, why
sit not employed as promised? If not so.
why this calm, this protracted hush this
general quiet and non-action? Surely thq
"Lincoln Monument Associations," in whoso
sacred namas fairs and lotteries wero held,
and collections made, wcro not baso swindles
and cheats? Wo do not think they were; but
where Is tho vast sums of money raised
through their agenoy? Tho public may not
be tho victim of fraud and deception in this,
but thu matter has usstuntd an ugly phase,
and calls for explanation. The long contin
ued lull excites inquiry. If the public has
been dealt with honorably, some one can say.
whero tho Lincoln monument funds, collected.
everywhere, has been concentrated. Vi ho Is
ho? Who can speak and give us reliable in
formation? XE WS PAPA OPA PHS.
