only one exception, this is the highest
price ever paid a fisherman for any
pearl and this was only equaled
about a year ago, when Heide paid
Albert Cnrdine a like amount for a
large' white beauty. While none of
the other local buyers have yet equal
ed the above price, some of them
have gone much higher than any of

the great auditorium at the fair

of fluttering Mags and waving stream
ers. There was martial music without
limit and enthusiasm unbounded. Over
the beauty and success of the day
there was but a single shadow, and
that promised to disappear before the
morning. Thla was the illness of Gen
eral Gordon, the commander-in-chief of
the organization, who had to remain
away from the afternoon session. It
is possible tint he may not be able to
preside for a day or two.
General Gordca Address.
The opening exercises consisted of
the customary series of welcoming
speeches and responses, and General
Gordon's address. Home of the no
ticeable sentences in this were as fol
lows: "We will not indulge on this
centennial this iolitical millenial
morning nor at other times, in any
bitterness. We feel none. We pity
those who do. We have long since
drawn the curtain of oblivion over
the regretful and unseemly things of
the past: ami we c herish as Americans
the valor and noble deeds of both arm
ies and of all sections. Wo are proud
of all the past. Moreover, we are now
facing a future pregnant with tremen
dous possibilities: but we face it with
a strength of hope and assurances,
born of an unswerving purpose to
discharge our every duty to all races,
and to the whole country."
Mrs. Stonewall Jackfon.
At the conclusion of General Gor
don's address :ie led to the front of the
platform Mrs. Stonewall Jackson and
said: "It was my fortune and I will
never cease to thank God that it was
my fortune, to follow, to know well,
and to love Stonewall Jackson. lie is
not here, but the best half of him is
here in tlio person of his wife. Com
rades. I present to you Mrs. Stone
wall Jackson.'" In the wild cheers
that swept the hall, the fair faced
lady from Virginia was made to know
once more how southern love remem
bers. Gordon' Enviable Position.
"And heivs a young Jackson,"
called out the general., leading for
ward a very pretty girl, Miss Julia
Jackson Christian, the grand-daughter
of the famous soldier. As he spoke
he kissed her and the cheers were re
doubled for the general and the girl.
Last of the Confederate Cabinet.
Hon. Joiin II. Reagan, the sole sur
viving member of the Davis' cabinet,
then spoke from one iortion of the
rostrum. After the speech the mob

with redoubled energy. One old slo

COLOMBIA READY FOE BLOODSHED
Pretext for Letting Loose the War
Dogs Being the Panama
London, May 20. Senor Culllermo
R. Calderon, Colombian consul-general
in Croat Britain, cabled the Bogota
government as follows: "Ships nearly
sold; advise holding them. War pre
paring. Be on your guard." The sldps
referred to are the cruisers which the
Colombian government authorized
Calderon to sell at the conclusion of
the recent revolution. Explaining the
cablegram the consul general said:
"Everything is in readiness for a revo
lutionary outbreak against President
Marroquin because of that official's
reported determination not to call con
gress together to ratify the Panama
canal treaty, but to execute the re
quired ratification himself.
Colombia Needs a Dictator.
"(Jeneral It.iphael Iteyes and (Jener

mand the sympathy of Conservative
and Literals alike. However, Presi
dent Marroquin is supported by the
army, the official classes, the diplo
matic corps and above all by the Fnit

America be sufficiently pronounced the
president may succeed in holding pow

the true interests of the country are
likely to be promoted, since a dic tator

Colombia needs. Every Colombian

munition and supplies and war will be
begun the moment Ileyos and Fernan

Colombians and the Canal.
Several Colombian revolutionists
who have arrived in London express
great surprise that the coup d'etat ar
ranges! some weeks ago to displace
Marroquin still lungs tire. They as
sert that M.irroquin's assumption of
arbitrary power means war unless the
president should give way. They add
that all Colombia wants the canal, but
that the majority wishes the consti
tution upheld and adequate payment
made Colomnia for its canal rights
either by the French company or by
the Fnited States. South Americans
in London who anticipateel an easy
trlumph for Ileyos and Fernandez say
that their scheme appears to liave mis
carried. They agree that Fernandez'
resignation of the ministry of war
points to war under his chief com
mand. KRTJGER REACHES PARIS:
