Charleston Post, 1st.
W:rington, Va., March ist.-Maj. Mi
cah Jenkins has declined to accept the
sword which it was proposed to present
hiin at Charleston, S. C., whet theI Presi
dient shall visit that place.
Major Jenkins, who is ai member of the
faculty of the lethleheni Academy here,
has sent the following telegrain to I,ieu
ten1ant Governor Tillinan, of South Car
"Lieutenant Governor James. 11. Till
man, Coluunbia S. C.:
"YoU are repreprsented in the press as
having telegraphed President Roosevelt
at the r(quest of the subscribers to the
sword recently offcred inc throlgh you,
requesting hiii to withdraw his accept
ance to present the salue.
"If this is so I nust decline, under these
ciicutistances, to accept the sword.
"Thanking-you for your personal kind.-|
ness in the iiatter, I an, trnly yours,
"M. J. Jenkins."
A miovemnent was started in this city
yesterday to raisea fund for a sword to
be presented to Majot Jenkins in place
of the one that Lieut. Gov. Tilhian had
secnred for the same end The matter
was brought to the l.vening Post, but,
after full consideration, it was decided
best to do Iothig that might embarrass
Major Jenkins who had been involved
ini an unpleasant affair through no
fault of his own. In view of the action
taken by Major Jenkins today, however,
the movenent has been released and the
Evening Pt"st is glad to present it to the
public and to undertake to receive sub
scriptions. for the fund. A conmittee
will be organized to take the matter in
hand and to this body will he given over
ally amnounts handed in to the I,vening
The sentiment in the city is very
strongly in favor of relieving Major Jen
kins of the enbarrassmenlt into which he
has been brought and at the same tiiie as
suring a mark "f his gallant services
under Col. Theodore Roosevelt of the
Rough Riders, and already, although
the mnovemnent to procure a sword for him
was halted at its incipiency, a sumil has
been subsci ibed albost suflicient to pur
chase the testimonials. Now that the
matter is released by the spontaneous
action of Major Jenkins, it will be a very
few days before the whole stum needed
It is considered eminently fitting that
the sword should he presented by the
people of Charleston, as this has been
Major Jenkins' home. Of course the
President would be asked to present the
sword to Major Jenkins upon his visit to
Charleston and it is believed that this in
vitation will move the President further
to make his visit as originally planned,
from consideration for his comrade iil
arms, whose ac,ionl iln esenting so
p)romphtly and emiphlatically the affronit
upon his commilander will commilend( himi
