Result is Somewhat in Doubt?To
Boa Well-Attended
Tho contoflt among artlsts for tho
honor ond "buslness" of doslgnlng the
equcstrian stntuo of General J. E. B.
Stuart promiscs now to be far more in?
terestlng than at flrst thought.
From what cnn bo learned hero and
thero, tho mnjority of tho members of
t?io commltteo who resldo ln ltlchmond
thlnk that tho best model for tho pro?
posed statue Ib that of Fred Moynlhan,
formerly of Rlchmond, but now located
In New York clty.
Tho appearanco of General Fitzhugh
Leo and Major A. R. Venablo. of Farm
vllle, on tho scerte, has conslderably
complicatod mattors. It Is understood
tbat they favor the model of Monlhnn,
also nf New York. It Is snld that Gene?
ral Leo ls very much moro Impressed
wlth that of Monlhnn than any othor,
whlle Major Venable ls posslbly opon to
a llttle argument and mlght be brought
over to vote for Moynlhnn's. But thn
reported division in the commltteo ln
tnsto ls likely to be productlve of some
interestlng votlng to-nlght, when the
flrst formnl meeting wlll be held.
One of Three Courses.
It must not be understood that any
member of tbo commlttee has voted for
thls or that, but all the models have been
seen by all of tlie members of tlio com?
mltteo save Mr. Joseph Bryan, and they
have all expressod oplnlons. From what
can bo learned of theso cxpresslnns, all
f-nve Gonrenl Leo and Major Venablo
gave the most abundant pralso to the
inodol of Moynlhan. Oeneral Leo ond
Major Venable, lt1 ls reported, vislted tlio
hall together, nnd eame away convlnced
that tho model of Moynlhan ls tho best.
Tho real contest ls golng to bo between
theso two models. Those who think
Moynlluin's ls most desirable aro alilo
to see many good polnts In the model of
Monlhnn, und probably vlce versn. Cer
