the past has had considerable difficulty
with property owners who have laid
sidewalks to suit the situation, rather
than the, grade,' and in every instance. so
far, the city has carried its point.
Alderman Clayton announced Thurs
day morning that the city would soon
be able to give grades for sidewalks in
Highland Park, but that streets would
not be craded until -nroperty owners had
laid sidewalks and curbing.

MEMORY OF MARK

Henry Watterson, Champ

New York, N. Y., Dec i. Recollec
tions of Mark Twain's life were given
by Henry YVatterson of I.ouisville in
his speech at the Mark Twain me
morial. "Although Mark Twain and I," said
Mr. "Watterson, "called each other
'cousin, and claimed to be blood rela-W
tives, the connection between us was
by marriage. A great uncle of his
married a great aunt of mine; his
mother was named after and reared by
this great aunt, and the children of
the marriage were, of course, his
cousins and mine. Though the family
became widely separated, we were life
long and very dear friends; passed
much time together at home and
abroad; and had many common ties
"Mark Twain's place in literature it
Is not for us to fix. TV,e are here
rather to commemorate his character
and his personality; his courageous
and upright manhood as strong as
Scott's, as primitive as Carlyle's, as
unassuming and simple as Irving's and
"Whittler's; integrity the bedrock, hard
and fast, quite hidden under the ver
dure of sentiment and the flora of the
loyal and the gentle."
Congressman Champ Clark of Mis
souri spoke on "Mark Twain as a Lob
byist." "It is in keeping with the eternal
fitness of things," he said, "that a
Missourian should participate In pay
ing honor to the most famous Mis
sourian that ever lived. "With me, it is
a labor of love."
The intellect, the power and the
wealth of the land gathered at Car
negie hall to pay tribute to the mem
ory of Mark Twain.
William Dean lowells presided. Jo
seph G. Cannon and Champ Claifc
spoke from the same platform. Dr.
Henry Van Dyke of Princeton, Henry

among those Invited.
