ROUSS STATUE UNVEILED. Tfte Millionaire's Gift to New Toft City Formally Presented, [Sptcial litporl for tlie Spirit of Jefferson New York. April 20, I g x>. Yesterday afternoon the magnificent bronze statue representing Washington greeting LaFayette, Air. Charles Broad way Rouss' gift to the city of New* York, was unveiled with fitting ceremonies. The statue, which was modeled by Bar tholdi, is located at the junction ot Morn ingside and Manahattan avenues, on LaFayette Square, 114th street. There were many people present prominent in social and public lite, among whom were Gen. Horatio C. King, Hon, Randolph Guggenhejpftsr, President of the Board of Council; Mr. IJdmond C. Bruwaert, French Consul General, who represented Ambassador Cambon; Gen. H. Kyd Douglas, ot Hagerstown, Md.; Mr. Ed ward Markham, the author of the " Man With the Hoc;" Prof. Adolph Cohen, Col Win. Dellertburn Washington, Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss. The 14th Regiment and. 7th Regiment bands fur nished the music. Col. Wm. DeHertburu Washington, ivfio had charge of the ceremonies, m ide :he opening address, in which he alluded feelingly to the character of the man who, lirough patriotic sentiment, had present ed to the great city of New York the Deautifni monument they had assembled :o unveil. He lefcrred briefly to the life jf LaFayette and Washington, to their levotion to the cau ;c of the pc rtriots, and ,vhat they had (lune .for the cause of Liberty. Amongoth^r things Col Washi ngton said, of LaFayette; " Have we orgotten how this young patriot shared he difficulties unci discomforts of the itruggle ? His honesty and earnestness >f purpose won him the confidence of his iuperiors and his future conduct proved t never to have been misplaced. His Dersonal courage distinguished him the noment he came into the presence of the :nemy. He never faltered, and the credit ind honor which he ttaiued so rapidly, md which increased duringeach succeed ng year of his service,were based alone ipon the courage and sterling qual'Lies >f the man, and won his way to the afTec ions of his commanding general and brother officers. But his proudest title ,vas his soubriquet throughout the army >f' The Soldier's Friend.' It was neither ?ank nor wealth, but the true, earnest and infaltering man which won him success. His amiable temper, his extraordinary prudence and judgment, his exalted levotion, his unquestionable integrity, lis conduct as a soldier, ajid his stead astness as a friend ot liberty, have placed lim in the esteem of the nation and in the oregrouud among the acknowledged eaders of the Revolution. A man. the lighest type cast by nature, to whom equality was the most sacred symbol, and ,vhom for the cause of mankind aud its reedotn, gave life and fortune. Purity .vas his soul, and justice and freedom his ife. A century ago it was said ' By equally gentle, prudent and courageous :onduct he has made himself the Idol of Congress, of the Army and of the people >f America,' and so may he ever remain." Col. Washington then introduced Gen. Horatio C. King, who had been chosen to present the statue to the city on behalf of Mr. Rouss, Gen. King's speech elicited frequent and hearty applause. He said in part: "When LaFayette arrived in this country matters were in such shape is to shake the confidence in final victory Df even the most sanguine. The cam paigns in New York, New Jersey and elsewhere, shrouded the bravest hearts in gloom, while in many cases large numbers abandoned the cause of liberty and re newed their allegiance to their oppres sors. Thefirein the rear has always been more depressing to the loyal patriot in every war in the life of this nation than the armed enemy at the front. History repeats itself, and there have been found, down to .the present day. vast numbers who stand ready to ^embarrass the govern ment in its efforts to sustain the honor of the flag. France did much to help the cause of Liberty, in both men and money. Many Frenchmen sacrificed their lives in the cause. The memory of those days never ought to be, and I think never will be, forgotten. However strained our relations with Francc may become, I do not believe that we shall ever go so far as to cross swords with her. The two coun tries will always remain united by the bonds of the past, when France sent her sons to help us, and the names of La Fayette and Washington will always remain as the two bright stars in the revolutionary war," President Gugenheimer, in accepting the monument on behalf of the city, said, among other things: "Thestar of Amer ican republicanism and prosperity will set in darkness when American l>oys and girls will cease to be instructed in those superb lessons of self-reliance and na tional independence which were taught to America and the world by the united genius of Washington and LaFayette. This beautiful statue is a national object lesson, the value of which cannot be overestimated. It represents and keepi alive our memories of the historic rela tions of friendship and mutual esteem which existed between the French and the American revolutionary forces. It will proclaim with voiceless eloquence i the unforgotten fact that France sent not only a message of cheer across the Atlan tic to the first Republic of the Western World, but expended, on behalf of this nation, its richest blood and treasure. The American people will never be so ungrateful as to forget the services ren dered to America in her hour of need by the gallant General whose name is per petuated in almost every city throughout the United States beside that of the first President of the great Republic. In be half of the city of New York, I officially accept this statue and transfer it to the care and custody of the Park Depart ment." Greatly to the regret of Col. Washing ton and others the French Ambassador was unable to be present. He was re presented by Edrnond C. Bruwaert, the French Cousul General, who made a short, pleasant speech, and brought forth considerable applause. Col. Washington and Mr. Bruwaert then gently pulled the American flag which covered the statue, and Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss' maginificent gift to tlie city stood unveiled. Great aud prolonged cheering greeted the un veiling. When the applause had subsided Mr. Rouss arose and endeavored to speak. He was so overcome with emotion that he had to be assisted back to his seat. Again the cheering broke out and lasted for fully five minutes. The fig ures of the statue are twelve feet high and the group stands on a base of granite and marble of an equal height. Wash ington is represented as grasping La Faycttc by the hand. LaFayttte up holds with his left hand a stand of colors which forms a backing for the figures. Commemorative exercises in honor of the presentation of the statue were held in tl\p evening at Carnegie Hall. Most of those who attended the unveiling were present, and the hall was crowded to the doors. Col. H. Kyd Douglas made the principal address. Edward Markham, the authorof "TheMan With the Hoe," read an original poem. The Committee in charge received several hundred letters of regret from both sides of the water from those who were unable to be present, among them being a telegram from Hon. Wm. Jen nings Bryan, who said: "Please express to the Committee my regret that other engagements prevent my witnessing the unveiling of the statue of Washington and LaFayette. Their names are linked together in history by their joint efforts in behalf of liberty and self government, and their glory cannot fade wnile the principles for which they fought are remembered." Letters of regret were also received from President McKinlcy And Pere Ilyacinthc, of Paris. Col. Wm. Dellerthurn Washington, who had charge of the ceremonies, carried the unveiling through to a most success ful ending. HarveyN. Dorsey.

There are a great many Phillips's here, with a variety of sur names, but there is only one R. H., and he is the senior member of the firm of Will. Phillips' Sons, lumber dealers, this city. We thought certainly everybody in the county knew "Bob" Phillips. Ilis business relations running through a number of years has afforded liim not only an opportunity for wide acquain tanceship but popularity as well, and to our best knowledge he enjoys a full measure of each. We are more than satisfied if he should be made a custodian of county affairs.
