LEE STATUE FIELD IF BITTLE Senator Edmondson Makes EIo quent Address on Gettys? burg Monument. "I want General Lee riding on 'Traveler,' to look right In the faces of thoso people, just as he dld in life,' sald Senator l.dmondson yesterday, ti rpcaklng of the monument to thc Vlr glnla troops to be placed on thc bat tlcfield of Gettysburg. in a speech of true and touchlng feellng. The Sen ate had under discussion thc bill to renew thc appropriatlon for that mon? ument, and whlle lt was not contestc.l, thc gallant old Confederate took the floor to make some explanatlon of the work and alms of the commlsslon ap? pointed to execute the trust reposed by the General Assembly. Scnator Danlel, Former Governor Swanson am] others are colleagues of Senator Ed mundson on tho commission. "The monument ls to be placed right where General Lee formef] lils army on July 3, 1863, at Gettysburg at the head of Armistead's Brigade." said Scnator Edmundson, "not far from the ?Bloody Angle.' We wanted to put it on thc crest of the hlll where Pickett and hls tmmortal follo\vers went down in death. but the government had or? dered that no monument shall be pla.rcd at that spot. Twenty years ago the concession of a Confederate monument at Gettysburg would not have been thought of. but time, as it rolls on. seems to have meltcd the hearts of both thc Nortii and ttie South. "Yes. they tell us we lost there at Gettysburg. but it was a drawn battle. "We returned in peace. V,'e wcrc not molc-sted. They dld not try to follow us or engagc us further. They just said to us: 'Go in peace.' "Now, upon that great arena of a mighty conflict, hundreds of statucs perpetuate the Federal generals and men who fought there. There, faclng thc South. are General Meade, General Hancock and a legion of others. and 1 want to put General Lee there on Traveler, right in front of them, fac ing them just as he dld in that battle. I want him to slt there and face them for all time to come." Senator Edmondson spoke straight from his heart, with the simple elo ?juence of slncerity and loyalty to the lays that were. His speech was not jxpeeted, and its welcome was as spon .aneous as its origin, for feellng ap nlause Interrupted several times. With :he reverence which one who woro the iiroud gray coat of a Confederate major might use to "Marse Robert," he paid his eloquent tribute to him. There was' a mlst in the eyes ot many of the members of the Senate when he con cluded, and many said openly that it was the most eloquent speech of the session. HOUSE (Continued from Page 3.) poses.

It was polnlcd out to Judge Wil? liams that thls blll was a revenue one, In asmuch as II brings tn interest on daily bal- j anccs.

It would ren- J der all deposlts safe and would make the States bonds worth more, as they would be in greater demnnd. The trouble wltli lhe present system Is that tnc qucstlon of new deposllarlea comes up every session. and the money ls belng scallered all over lhe .state to the inconvenlcncc of the treas jrer. Small banka could borrow bonds. as Is ?onstantly done by natlonal banks with United States bonds. Mr. Rew sald the blll looks like class eglslatlon. allowlng thc big Iish to swallow he little ones.

Here and There tn the Legislature Continued attacks were made yes erday morning on the Fltzhugh dyers pure-food bill before the House 'ommittee on Agriculture and Mlning. rhe opposition was so pronounced hat lt was the opinion of the co:n nlttee that it might be best to defer egislation of this sort untll the next lesslon of the Legislature, when tho nalter can be consldered carefully. joseph Wallersteln said that if lt vere not for cold storage eggs ln the vlnter season would cost from 65 to '5 cents a dozen, ln response to tbe aws of supply and demand. Hc said .hat the eliminatlon of cold storage ivotild Increase the cost of llvlng. The public health, hc thought. was fully protected by existlng laws. The blll .vould merely help concerns outslde of Lhe State. Other cold storage men sald that much prejudice agalnst reilly pure foods would be arou "d in the mlnds of the Ignorant by tne "cold storage" tag, which would be put on thd pro? duct. It would be to such an one like fiauntlng a red flag ln the face cf a bull. "But," he said, "they say we should tell the truth. Thc truth tells noth? lng. I don't care for the truth if the trutli tells me nothing. If this blll would result in saving a single llfe, it ought to pass. But lt would not result in any guarantee of purity," He showed how eggs, for instance, which had been In cold storage ln Washlngton for elght months could be brought to Richmond and stay in storage here for a week. The pur? chaser would think thom compara tlvely fresh. whereas they had been ih another State for many months. Judge George _. Chrlstian appeared before the House Committee on Fl? nance yesterday morning asklng for contlnuance of the work of preserv Ing the Confederate mllltary records. ile thought the Statc could not spend tbc money to greater advantage. Not only the voterans, but their descend ants, are especially Interstd. To sus pend the offlcd. he sald, would be to Jestroy the efflciency of the work al rady don. "What is $5,000," he asked, "to Immorlalize the names of tho men who gave thelr lives and thelr blood to the State?" He thought abolltlon of the department would so cripplo the work as not o make it useful here aftcr. He dld not, he said, believe recent crltlclsms were just. Whilc he hlmself, a.s a member of the Committee of tlie Grand Camp, did not investigate Major Hutiter's office. hc approved the report, because he had confldence in the judgment of Captain W, Gordon McCabe, who had dono so. He be? lieved, be said. that he represented thc sentiment of the Confederates of thc state. For tlie Sons of Confederate Veter ans, John B. Llghtfoot, Jr? said that It was a requlsite to membershlp ln ihat organization that tho fatlier's mllltary rocor_ bc secured. There are men awalting membershlp untll the necessary information Is gotten. Attention was called by Mr. Wlngo, for the committee. to the fact that these men were mlstaken in tho as sumptlon that there was nny thought of discontlnulng tbe gntherlng of the records.
