I ton to the NatulHCOmmlttee t that the

scarcely received before dispatches ar

The park which is to be dedicated is
of Immense dimensions It extends
with its approaches from Sherman
Heights in Tennessee six miles north
of Chattanooga to Glass Mill In Geor
gia a distance of twentytwo miles
Tile broad boulevard oetween the two
points Is owned by the Government a
part of the park and full jurisdiction
over this over the fifteen miles square
of the Chlckamauga Held and ovei
e many miles beside ot other approaches
has been ceded to the Government by
the States of Tennessee and Georgia
This drive runs for eight miles along
Braggss line of battle on the crest 01
Missionary Ridge It passes along the
fronts of Shermans army Thonmst
army and the army under Hooker Ii
overlooks all the battlefields about
Chattanooga including Lookout Moun
J tain and runs for twelve miles through
the center of the lighting ground of the
three days battle uf Chickamauga
Of the territory over which Jurisdic
tion has been ceded to the United
Slates for park purposes ten square
miles have been already purchased in
a single block on the chickamaUga
Held The entire crest about Draggse
headquarters on Missionary Ridge Or
chard Knob the headquarters of Grant
Thomas and Granger during the battle
ot Chattanooga a tract eight acres in I
extent llfty acres at the north end 01
Missionary Ridge being the ground
assaulted by Gen Sherman and defend
ed by Clebuine and a tract of live
acres on another portion of the Ridge
marking the left of the assault of thi
Cumberland form portions of the park
Congress has also authorized the addi
tion to the park of Hookers and Val I
thall battleground on Lookout Tht
Government already owns the roads tt
and over Lookout mountain through
Hookers field to Wauhatchle on Long
streets field
The park and Its approaches embrace
or overlook the fields of live days ol
general battle between great armies
and three days of minor engagements
namely ChlcUamauga Orchard Knob
Lookout Mountain and Missionary
Itldgc Browns Ferry and Wauhatchle
The plan of the park Is to restore the
fields as nearly as possible to theft
condition at the time of the battle to
close all new roads and reopen and im
prove thoso used in tho battles and
over which the armies moved to and
from the fields The lines of battle
have all bwn ascertained and a vasl
amount of work toward permanently
marking them has been done This Is
accomplished by historical and guide
tablets which point the way to and
explain the movements upon every por
tion of the lines These tablets show
UK organizations of armies corps di
visions and brigades with the names
of the respective commanders and
their staffs of the field and the com
manders of all regiments and batteries
Full historical text on each tablet sets
forth the details of the movement at
each IKint
There Is no distinction In the prepara
tion of these tablets between Union
and Confederate forces nor in any
other department of the work Is there
In difference The design Is to mark
with historical accuracy the Identical
ground of engagements which occurred
on these fields and thus present an ob
Jtn t lesson in actual war which no
otlltr nation has attempted
Besides tho historical tablets which
are prepared by the Government the
States are erecting monuments to mark
the positions of their troops Already
nearly a half a million dollars have
bean appropriated by States which had
troops here and all of the Staten but
two of tIbet twentynine which were rep
resented In battles have commissioners
at work locating positions for monu
ments There arc nearly a hundred
miles of roads opened and fiftytwo
have been Improved In most substan
tial manner and all through military
positions l Over 400 guns of the but
teries used on these fields have been
obtained fioin the arsenals and 160
have already been mounted upon Iron
guncarriages which are of the pat
tern of the carriages of the war and
set up to mark the exact position of the
batteries of ouch side In the battle
Eventually the whole 400 guns wijl be
i n position Visitors find this one of
the most imposing features of the re
storation as they come upon batteries
of real guns at every prominent pulm
of the lines 8te < l nlisui viiilnii invert

The Chlckamauga Held Is already
thickly dotted with State monuments
and the Government tablets and while
not over half of the number of each
which are to be erected have yet been
provided the lines of the threedays
engagement are readily followed Ohio
has fiftyfive monuments and fifty
three granite markers for minor posi
tions In place Minnesota has five
monuments to her two organizations I
and two of these are the most costly of
any yet erected Massachusetts has a
fine granite and bronze monument on
Orchard Knob All of the monuments
thus far erected except those from In

The park project and the main de
tails of its comprehensive plan was the
conception of Gen Boynton now the
historian of the National commission
Ills public suggestion to make Chicka
mauga a National park was taken up
by the Society of the Army of the
Cumberland and his first plan was to
secure this through a joint memorial of
Union and Confederate veterans with
the idea of securing State assistance
A memorial association was organized
and chartered but before it began op
erations he perfected a plan for a Na
tional commission acting under the
supervision of the Secretary of War
He wrote a bill which is the present
law l placed it in the hands of Gen
Grosvenor of Ohio who Introduced it
In I the House of Representatives Many
members of the House took an immedi
ate and strong interest In the measure
notably thirty of those who served in
one or the other of the armies of the
battle of Chattanooga Before it was
called up universal support had been
secured for it and it passed both
houses by unanimous consent It pro
vided for the purchase of 7600 acres of
the Chickamauga field and for the
equal participation of both sides in
the marking of the lines and the erec
tion of monuments All subsequent
appropriations now aggregating 750
000 havo also passed without opposi
r roctor took great < intoroit
mission under which the park is being
established Secretary Elklns gave the
project energetic support and through
the last two years while the Immedi
ate work has been placed in final
shape Secretary Lamont has rendered
constant and most energetic assistance
The National commission consists of
Gen J S Fullerton chairman Gen A

London Sept 16Hon James E
Eckels Comptroller of the United
States Treasury made the following
itatement today on request of a repre
sentative of the Associated Press
Being thus far away from New
Vork and not knowing the exact con
lltlons prevailing there which are pro
luclng the shipments of gold abroad I
eel I can say nothing upon that sub
ject wblch will bo of special benefit to
the public Generally speaking the
sold shipments came about from the
fact that the American people are buy
Ing a great deal abroad and not sell
Ing sulllclent of their own products to
equalize things thus necessitating the
settlement of the balance duo in gold
We maintain a financial systemwhich
makes tho United States Treasury the
general market of supply for all re
lulrlng gold Consequently more or less
ambarrassment comes to the Admin
istration of the Treasury department
when these balances require to be set
tled However the Treasury has al
ways managed to maintain unquestion
ed the payment of its obligations and
always will do so The system under
which it is forced to operate makes it
sometimes expensive to do so but as
long as the voters tolerate them the
people have no right to complain of
tho expense

Varian on the ground that he was a
nonresident of tho State and conse
quently not eligible to admission to the

thorities In support of their objection
and contended that Mr Varian could
only be allowed to practice in our

tended that an attorney not a member

upon himself the quasijudicial func

admit Mr Varian reserving the privi
lege of renewing the same later on
