RICHMOND UNVEILS ITS
MONUMENT TO DAVIS
Remnant of Army of Con
federacy Treads Streets
of Wartime Capital
RICHMOND. Va., June 3.— Lnder a
perfect sky. with bands playing "Dixie
and "Maryland," the remnants of the
army of the confederacy passed through
the streets of Richmond today and outj
Monument avenue and unveiled a me
morial to Jefferson Davis. The event
came as the climax of- the reunion
of the United Confederate Veterans and
every man of that body who was able
to walk at all'took part.
That the great multitude had gath
ered for one purpose alone was evi
denced by the attitude of people toward
William J. Bryan, who was the guest
of the reunion. He was given a re
markable ovation as be drove through
the streets in the line of march aud
was cheered to the echo as he mounted
the stand lust before the program was
begun. At the conclusion of the cere
mony there were a number of calls for
him to address the people, but these
were Immediately drowned in a chorus
of "Xo. no. no,- many tlmea repeated.
The objections came from everywhere
and were led by the women of the
J&Cerson Davis monument association,
ajfo General Stephen Lee. grand master,
who presided at the stand and an
nounced In ringing tone*:
"There will be no politics - nere."
He turned to the crowd in every di
rection and Bhouted the warning and it
had the desired effect:
BRYAN MUCH PEIITUIUJED
Daring the ceremony* Mr. and Mr*.
Bryan had occupied an inconspicuous
position in the rear of the speaker*3
stand out of sight of the people.; As
soon as his name was called Bryan
made a movement to withdraw from
the stand. He realized that If he ap
peared before the people a political
move would be attributed to him by
many and for that reason he had op
posed going on the stand at aIL
When the monument was unveiled,
I Mrs. J. A. Hayes of Colorado Springs,
daughter of Jefferson Davis, pulled th« >
cord that held the canvas ehroud which
covered the bronze statue. Her two .
young sons, the grandsons of the con
federate president, caught the two j
cords used to complete the unvelllny. j
The monument to Jefferson Davis »s j
the crowning feature of Richmond's
great Monument avenue. The memor
ial consists of a semicircular colonnade,
terminating at either end in a square
pier, with a large fcolumn or shaft aris- !
ing from the inclosed space. The semi- ,
circle Is about BO feet across, with a
depth of SO feet and stands 67 feet in
height. The monument typifies the vin
dication of Davis and the cause of the
confederacy for which iie stood before
the world, the leading inscription being
"Deo Vindice" <God will vindicate). -J
The colonnade, composed of 13 dorse
columns besides the two end pieces,
rises about 18 /eet above the walkway
and has its frieze decorated with bronze
seals of the 11 states th«t seceded and
the three others that sent representa
tives and troops.
BRONZE FIGURE OF DAVIS
In the center of the space Inclosed t>y\
the column 6tands a large doric column I
more than five feet in diameter. , The
.olumn forms- a background for the
bronze figure of Davis and also carries
on its top an allegorical bronze figure,
whose right hand points to heaven and
rvhose title, "Vindicatrlx." represents
the whole spirit of the monument. The
large column bears, the seal- of the
vronfederaey in bronze and has the in
scription. " Jefferson Davis, President of
ihe Confederate States of America^
IS6I-1565." !.--'<?\u25a0 .
The bronze figure of Davis stands. on
a great block of granite In front of the
column and about 12 feet above "the
roadway.
Ge'noral Clement A. Evans In his ora
tion paid tribute to the women of the
south, through whose efforts the statue
had been erected. Speaking of;the-re
sults of the civil war and the criticism
directed at the defeated leader of -the
secession, he" said:
