As most of the contributions to the

the various towns, both those that have
reported progress in raising a fund In
their towns and those who have not yet
had the matter called to their attention" in
an official manner..
Since Governor Doekery sanctioned the
efforts of the St. Luls committee to rnlHe
the fund throughout the State there have
been many subscriptions sent to The Re
public. Some of them were raised through tho
efforts of the Mayors of the towns, in

Inhabitants (the populaUon of LaPlata)
can raise such a subscription by an appeal
to the patriotism of his townsmen, other
towns of ninny times the size of LaPlnta
should be better icpres-ented In the fund
