They Are Taken From a Letter Written by General George Washington to General Iiochanibeau in 1TS4. The Republic Bureau. th St. and Pennsylvania Ave. Washington, May "1. The --secretary of tho French Embassy said to-day that the Itinerary of Count Rochambeau and his party has been completed and that St. Louis is not Included. As decided upon, the trip will include Niagara Falls, West Foint, Newport and Boston. No city farther west than Buffalo will be visited. The secretary added that this ltinerary might be changed somewhat at the last moment, but he thought It very Improbable. He said that, while the cordial invitation of Governor Francis to visit St. Louis was appreciated fully, there was little pros pect that It could be accepted, owing to engagements already made in the East. Since the arrival of the Count and Coun tess de Rochambeau. a new impetus has been given to the preparations for the un veiling of the statue of their great ancestor. Tho Count last night showed M. Juls Cambon tho copy of a letter from General Washington to his colleague in command at Torktown and it was Immediately decided to embody a sentence from it as an appro priate inscription ou the reverse face of the pedestal of the statue. After considerable search the authenticity of the letter was positively proven from the archil cs of the State Department and ar tists were immediately put to work to en grave tho following sentence on the re verse medallion: "Wo have been contemporaries and fellow laborers in the cause of liberty, and we have lived together as brothers should do, in harmonious friendship. "WASHINGTON." Washington's Letter to Rochnmliean. The letter is as follows: "To Lieutenant General the Count de Rochambeau: My Dear Count Haling re signed my public trust and with it all my public cares into the hands of Congress. 1 now address you in the character of an American citizen trom the banks of the Potomac, to which I have been retired, fast locked up by frost and snow ever since Christmas. "The tranquil paths of domestic life are now beginning to unfold themselves and promise rich harvest of pleasing contem plation, in which, dear Count, you will make one of the most pleasing themes, as 1 ohall recollect with pleasure that we have been contemporaries and fellow-laborers in the cause of liberty and have lived to gether, as brothers should do, In harmoni ous friendship. "I saw all the British foiees embarked and on the point of sailing before I left New York, about the 4th of December. 1 then repaired to Congress and surrendered all my public appointments, and am Just now beginning to look into the deranged situation of my private concerns, which had come in for no share of my attention during the past eight years. "To see you, then, at this seat of retire ment from the business of the world nnd the cares of public life is a pleasure too great to expect, though you must allow me to wish it, because I can with much truth assure you that I am, with every sentiment of esteem, regard and friendship, my dear Count, your most obedient and humble servant- G.

I WABASH ACQUIRES THE ANN ARBOR. Purchase of the Mieliirjan Railroad Was .Made by .Men in Ful ler Svndieate. LAKE FERRIES ARE INCLUDED. Cape Girardeau and Thebes Bridge Company Is Enjoined Iowa and St. Louis Line Is Under Wav. REPUBIJ. SPKCIAL New York. May 21. OHieial confirmation of the purchase of the Ann Arbor Railroad for the Wabash, exclusively announced in yesterday's Republic, was obtained to-day. The road was puchased by a syndicate com posed in part of the men interested in the Fuller syndicate and friendly to the Gould railway system. The Ann Arbor was acquired by the pur chase of the large holding" of Wellington R. Burt, president of tho railroad, and smaller holdings, among them the stock of Amos F. Eno. Mr. Burt conducted the ne gotiations lor the Ann Arbor Railroad, and ngreetl lo turn over the control of his road to the syndicate ,-epresented hy Joseph Ramsey. Jr.. president of the Wabash Rail road. On the ground that the purchase money has- not yet been paid, persons interested in the sale of the Ann Arbor declined to make public the price paiel lor tne t-tock and the exact amount transferred. It wan sold, however, that sufficient stoik had been aeijtjirtd by the syndicate to leave no doubt as to the control. President j.amaey. commenting upon the jiurcnate of tne Ann Arbor to-uay, sa.d mat neither the abash iialltoaa nor tilt eloulus eurectiy had acquired the control. "A eyndicaie.' said Mr. Ramsey, "has ac quired tne Ann Arbor by purchase. Tnis syndicate is not the Fuller Vindicate, that puicnased the Western .Maryianu and tne M'est irginia Central, but some of the in terests are the sume. The Ann Arbor will be held as the West Virginia Central and the Maryland are held. They are operated harmoniously and lur mutual advantage, but, nevertheless, they preserve their iden tity. It is not 'community of Interest," Tnat means nothing. It is ratner 'co-oneration.' " Asked whether the plans of tne Wabash syndicate contemplated further develop ment of the co-operation west of Lake M.eh igan. possibly to St, Paul and Minneapolis by way of the Wiscoi fin Central, Mr. Ramsey replied that there was, no such arrangement Included in the present ac quisition. Taps the (.rent Northwest. The Ann Arbor, by means, of its ferries across Luke Michigan, now makes connec tion with the Chicago and Northwestern, the Wisconsin Central, the Chicago. Mil waukee and St. Paul, the Canadian Pacific, the Wisconsin and Michigan, the Green Bay and Western and the Kcwannee rail roads, and has trailic arrangements by which it obtains freight from Northern Wiscornin and Northwestern Michigan. By means uf ice crushers, except in most bitter weather, the Ann Arbor terries are able to run without interruption during the entire year. They have not been seriously impeded for twelve years. According to the freight classification for 1!1 the highest tonnage was received from transporting lumber, coal and grain. During the year 1531 the transportation of ores showed a pronounced decrease, but under the new management it is believed that this traf fic can be reclaimed, ore. grain and lumber being carried east to Pittsburg or Balti more and coal being brought west from the fields of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. This trailic. Mr. Ramsey said, would be for the mutual advantage of both the Ann Arbor Railroad and the Wabash system. Easy .access into Detroit from the East for the Wabash was among the primal con siderations of the syndicate in taking over the Ann Arbor. A branch of tho Wabash from the West runs directly to Detroit, but from the East there would be great ad vantage in running over the Ann Arbor's rails from Toledo to Milan, where a con nection would be made with the Wabash directly into Detroit.

Jackon. Mo.. May 21. Judge Kochler of the Probate Court of this county to-elay is sued an injunction to prevent the Cap? Girardeau and Thebes Bridge Terminal Railway Company from constructing a rnad from Houck s Hallway to tee west landing of the proposed bridge over the Mississippi at uraysboro.

The Injunction Is intended as a restraining order until the suit for condemnation of the strip of land to be used ns terminal grounds for the bridge is settled.
