Qen. Craighill Dead.
Bng.-Gen. William Price Craighill. r<
tired chief of engineers of the Unite
States Army, died yesterday afternoo
at his native home in Charles Town
H s funeral will take place tomorrow al
te noou at 3 o’clock, from his late res
deuce.
At the time of his dath General Craig
hill was attended by his two sons. Dr
Jnies M. and Major William E. Craig
bill, of Baltimore; his two daughter*
Mrs. Hunter Davidson.of Hannibal, Mo.
aid Mrs. E. Tayloe Perry, of Charle
Town, aud his three sisters. Mrs. Charle
Butler and the Misses Ellen and Mar’
iCttfl9MP£Ni
V/reiKnm, an ot unaries town. Uttie
survivors are two children—Prof. N. R
Graighill, of the University of Montana
and Mrs. W. F. Lippitt, of San Juan, P
R —and two brothers Dr. Edward C

testant Episcopal Cathedral, of Wash

fie was for 25 years stationed in Balti
more, where, among other works, he
superintended the dredging of the deep
water channel which bears his name.—
Primarily a domestic man, his chief de
light was in his family, but be found
time to foim a wide circle of friends in
addition to those identified with his home
life. His love of home, books and fam
ily kept him apart from club life and his
c lief bobby was his work—military en
gineering.
It has been told of the General that at
the outbreak of the Civil War he spoke
to Gen. Winfield Scott of his inteuded
resignation from the army, because he
could uot fight against the South. Gen
eral Scott is said to have gotten him to
admit that lie was a “Union man” acd
to have promised him he would not have
to fight against the Southland, because
he would keep him in the engineering
corps. The General won much credit in
the struggle.
After the war General Graighill rt
mained in the engineering department
and superintended much important work
in connection with the country's fortifi
cations and other projects. He went t«*.
Baltimore as a major, just as his son fol
lowed him years later.and was appointed
by President Cleveland to the highest
p >st in his branch of the service when
he was 62 years old.
General Craighill's love for engineer
ing was reflected in the fact that two ot
liis sons were influenced by their father’s
career to follow the same, one becoming
a military and the other a civil engineer.
General Craighitl was born July 1
1'33. in Charles To wo, his father being
Mr. William Nathaniel Craighill, f
niiiiy years teller of the old Valley Bank
in this place. He entered the West
Point Military Academy July 1, 1849 —
Four years later he was graduated No 2
in a class of 52 members. Among his
classmates were Generals Sheridan.
Schofield. McPherson. Sooy Smith and
Vincent, of the Union side during the
Civil War, and Generals Hood, Cham
bliss and Walker, of the Confederate
Army. Appointed a second lieutenant
of the Corps of Engineers, he superin
tended the buildingof Fort Sumter (1854
5;) and Fort Delaware (1858), Aftei
this work he became instructor at West
Point and in 1863 built defenses of Pitts
burg. He was hrevetted lieutenant-col
onel March. 1665. for services at Cum
berland Gap.
After a short tour of duty in Washing
t >n in 1S63 he was engaged in the cot -
struction of the defense of Baltimore
from September, 1S63, to June 1864 in
cluding service as chief engineer. Middle
Department, from April to June, 1864
and again served as assistant professor
of engineering at the academy to August
31,1864, His subsequent services were
principally on defensive works for the
harbors of San Francisco, New York
and Baltimore and the mouth of tin
Chesapeake.
He was a member of the Board of En
giueers.in company with Gen T I, Cas-v,
then chief of Engineers; Gen E P Alex
aider. Admiral George Dewey and Mi
Mendes Cohen, which recommended the
Back creek route for the proposed Chesa
peake and Delaware ship canal in 1894.
He was appointed a member of the orig
inal Nicaragua Canal Commission, bn:
declined, and was president of the board
appointed to select aud recommend to ]
Congress sites for manufacturing heavy !
guns on the Pacific and Gulf coasts and
several times he was tendered the ap
pointmentof superintendent of the Mili- I
tary Academy at West Point.
For many years he was a member of !
the American Society of Civil Engineers *
aud became president of that orgauiza ’
tiou in 1894, being the only officer of ti e I
array who has attained that distinction
Me was also a member of the Americar
Association for the Advancement o
Science, the Historical Society of Mary
land and the American Economic As
Kociation.
In 1S61 he compiled “The Army Ofti
cars' Pocket Cotnpviien;” in 1S63 In
translated and published General Du
pout’s “Coursde Tactiques,”and in con
nection with Captain Mendell, he a's.
translated General Jomini’s “Precis dt
1’Art de la Guerra,”
A'ter the centennial of the surrcn let
of Ctrnwallis (1881) General Craigh ii
built the monument at Yoiktown, Va.,
for which funds although ordeied by t\
Continental Congtss. were not providi d
until a ce ituty later.
General Craighill was a stautuii
churchman and was deputy from VWst
Virginia to the General Convention of
the Protest rut Episcopal Church sev m
times. He was one of the most gen-.V
and gentlemanly of men, of high ch- ,
tian charac er, a-id posse istd a rich
fund of local historical information,mu ii
of which, from conversation with h m
we are assured he Ins left in manuscript
form with his children.
He was first married Octt ber 14, 1850,
to Miss Mary A Morsell. of the District
of Columbia. He was married a second
time, September 22, 1874, to Miss Re
fcecca C Jones, of Virginia.

telephone Business Not Injured.
To the Editor of ibe Spirit of Jefferson:
u My attention has been called to an ar.
tide which appeared in the CharlesTown
and Shepherdstown papers signed by Mr.
, H. C. Gttz;»d*oner, Manager of the
Jeftu.on County Telephone Company,
“ addressed to the 'phone-holders of said
. company, protesting against the County
Court of Jefferson county granting a
franchise to the Winchester & Washiug
a ton City Railway Company to construct
j its lines to Shenandoah Junction on the
ground that tile electric current greatly
injures the telephone service.
As Manager of the Frederick & Clarke
Telephone Company, I have an intimate
knowledge of this matter, as the lines of
the Winchester & Washington City Rail
way Company parallel our lines,
I am free to say that when our lints
are clear of ground and in good cond;
. tion the service is not in any way injur
ed, and am certain that the patrons of
, the Frederick & Clarke Telephone Cora
. pany will bear me out in this statement
It the Jefferson Couaty Telephone Com
pany will use proper care in keeping
their lines in good condition, I am cer
tain that they would have no trouble
whatever from induction from the l;nes
of the Eleclnc Company.
I make this statement in a spirit of per
sect fairness to all concerned.
Respectfully,
(S:gued), II. c. Warden,
Manager.

The house of Mr W C Clipp on South

was discovered to lie on fire about S
o’clock this morning. The fire com
panies responded promptly-, and the
b'azj was extinguished bufore it hid
done much damage.
There are now blight pio-p-cts that
the recognition long denied to James
Rumsey, the inventor of the stearnooa',
is to be at last accorded him. A bill will
be introduced in the West Virginia Leg
tslature by Delegate Keatfi.tt, of tins
county, iu the House, and Senator Me
Intire in the Senate, providing for an
appropriation of *5,000 for the erection
of a monument to the memory of the
great inventor at Sliepherrl-onv-n, the
scene of his labors and success, With
two influential representatives like
Messrs Mclutire and Kearfott urg'ng it
and with a strong endorsement of the
movement given by . x Governor Whit
in his message two years ago, at d with
the cooperation of Governor Dawson,
there is every reason to hope that some
thing 'substantial will be done in rescu
ing from oblivion the name of one of
America's greatest inventors.
