Congressman Called It Disgrace
That Tyler's Grave Was Not
Marked by State.
Examination of the Congressional
liccbrd ltd: shown th^t an argument
advanced )>y CongrcsaVmn Mann, of
Iilinol:?, to the effect that Virginia,
should have done. something for the
memory of President John Tyler, came
near causing th0 defeut of the pro
vlding for a monument in Hollywood
to his memory. During th< iast days
ot Congress, one objection was sufh
.?!? nt to kill a bill, and Mr. Mann mur?
dered a coed many in this why. He
became known as the ?reut objector.
??Now. \yhyi"7a5kcd Mr. Mann, "does
hot the State of Virginia do soirie
thlng for John Tyler's memory.* That
Slate whs proud of John Tyler, who
way formerly President, and why has
rtbt (hat State done sOmethihg?"
"Becuuse," responded Representative
Utmb. of Rivhiuohd, "they thought It
would be a pleasure for the Congress
of ibe United Suites to meinorallze
John Tyler."
Further colioauy was as follows: j
Mr. Mann: "Perhaps we might think j
i! would be u pleasure for Virginia to |
?lo it." ' j
Mr l*rimb: ? 1 cannot speak j
for the Legislature of Virginia. I can
speak for Virginia, though, along cer
lain lines. Virginia after the war \vas
in such a " 0110111011 financially that she
did not feej she was abb- to respond to
tl.i- and many kindred calls. She hud
to just lo her creditors before she.
could lie jrehorous 10 her most favored
sons."
Mr. Mann: "That nc>t the case now.
Virginia Is very prosperous at pres?
ent, and ought to be proud of the
memory of John Tyler." i
Mr. Dumb: "And so she Is."
Mr. Mann: "And ought to provide a
monument over his grave; It is h. dis?
grace, almost,'to Virginia that she has
gl\-eh no thought to the subject of
marking the grave pi a 1'resident clcct
? d !: oin Vlrglniu."
Mr. l.umb: ?'Vlrginiti has hoped and
bolloved it,ai the richest .government
on the glol^e would wish to honor tiic
memory ol one of her sons who formu?
lated the policies that gave to the gen?
era 1 government the great Common?
wealth of Texas. Other States, richer
than Virginia, have seen their "favored
sons who were national characters
honored. 1 will ask my friend why
\ irglniii should i,e made an exception'.'"
Mr. Man if; "That is what I ask my
friend. Why should Virginia, bo made !
an except ion V We are not doing it for \
other Presidents."
Mr. linmb: "Wo have done tills same
itilhg for citizens of other States who
furnished Presidents to the country.
My friend knows the record as well as
any member oh this floor, i hope my
friend from Illinois wilt withdraw his
objection.
Mr. Mann: "Out of regard for the
gentleman from Virginia himself, who
is hs gallant an old .soldier as ever
mad,- a light (applause). | will not
make any objection.'' (Applause.)
The Speaker: "Is there objection in
the consideration of this lull-.' (After a
pause.? The chair hears none."
The bill was ordered to be read tho
third time, was read the third time, and
passed.

but his condition was not regarded
as grave enough to excite the fears
of hia family. Death wag at hand,
however, and the new:,- of the passing
