Brewster, is the sculptor, tor us conception, its execution in detail, and its likeness to the man it com memorates It has been highly praised by critical friends of Mr. Walsh. Patrick Walsh, once United States Senator, Mayor of Augusta, news paper proprietor and publisher, Irish patriot and tariff reformer, is con sidered by Southerner, one of the most powerful factors in the work ol the new South. A. a man of peace, as a meditator, he spent his whole life in mitigating the burdens of the South after the war, and securing for it justice from the North. With Henry W. Grady, who sounded the keynote of the new South, he worked untiringly as a friend and compa triot to revivify the exhausted South and to renew the broken bonds be tween that section and the rest of the country. During his life (he was fifty-nine years old at the time of his death In 1 899 ) Patrick Walsh was the friend and co-worker of every Democratic leader since the war.

C, with his parents in September, 1852. He began life as a printer's deviL Whatever schooling he got was gained by his own endeavors. Be fore the war he attended George town College, paying his way with money saved while learning the printer's trade. When war broke out he returned to Charleston and -with Capt. Simonds organised a com pany in which he was elected First Lieutenant. They were stationed at Castle Plnckney, but when his two brothers entered the Confederate army he had to resign to aid his par ents, hla alster. and hla brother.' famille.. To do this he worked a. a printer on the Charleston New. and Courier. After the war he moved to Augusta, Ga., as a Journey man printer on the Augusta Con stitutionalist, tt was not long be fore he became a reporter and hortly after city editor of the paper. In 1866 he became editor of the Chronicle, which he subsequently owned Jointly with Gregg Wright, then a well known Southern .pub licist. Mr. Walsh waa also asso ciated with 'Father Ryan, the poet priest. In the publication of the Ban ner of the South. It waa in Augusta that he married Ann Isabelle McDon ald, a belle of the old South, who survives him. She was a true help mate In all his struggles and aa plratlons, and la loved and honored today In the city and State that were the acene of hia labors. When the Associated IPress organized its busi ness In the South, Walsh was made General Manager for the South, and became a very close friend of Will iam Henry Smith, for many year. President of the association. He be came General Manager and Treas urer of the Southern Associated Press when that organization formed an alliance with the Western Asso ciated Prss and the United Presa and aubdivided the field of news gather ing. Thia alliance lasted but a short bile, and when the split cam Walsh and a coterie of Southern newspaper owners who were a powei in the South allied themselves with the United Press, comprising at that time most of the big New York and New England papers. He often aaid he waa willing to bow and let other. rftan. Tn 1KR1 hn nipt with financial reverse. In Wall atreet, but recouped his fortunea somewhat in Augusta real estate, and shunned Wall street rorever arterwara. In 1194, on the death of Senator Colquitt, he was appointed United Statea Senator to fill the unexpired term by Gov. Northen, though Walsh earnestly advocated tha inniiitme,.t who ever held that office In Georgia. Patrick Walsh waa at all times ths cuampion or tne industrial South and carried on the work which Henry W. Grady so brilliantly began when his career was cut short by death. The schools, the great cotton mills nd the winter tourist hotels xt Auauata are among the most priffu- Inent monuments of his uscfulnesa in the reawakening of the South after ita long struggle. HELPS SOUTH. Panama Canal Creating a Decided Industrial Change. That the Panama canal ia creating a decided change in the industrial problems of the United State, and Canada is already an established fact; that It will exert a powerful influence on the development of the South ia freely admitted. There is a quickening of Interest In every Southern port from Tampa on the west coast of Florida to Brownsville In the most southern part of Texas. An intense rivalry has sprung up be tween Southern cities that enjoy deep water harbors. Other cities not. so well favored by nature are doing their utmost in preparation for the advantage that the Panama canal may (possibly give to them. The business interests of Jackson ville, Fla., in conjunction with the Board of Trade, were responsible for the calling of a special session of the Florida Legislature, at which special session the only business transacted was the passage of a bill which al Icwa the city of Jacksonville to own its docks and to levy taxes for the purchase of land on which to erect the docks, the building and main tenance of same and other necessary river lmproveemnts. For a time it looked as though the good citizens of Jacksonville had labored in vain, but tn the last hours of the last Congress the rivers and harbors bill was passed, which seems to assure for Jacksonville the realization of its commercial dreams. Much activity is also manifested In such ports as Pensacola, Fla.; St. Andrew. Bay, Fla.; New Orleans and Houston. All of these cities are sparring for com mercial precedence through the ad vantage which comes from the meet ing of rail and water transportation. In the sixteen Southern States 4,300 commercial organizations, representing a membership of over 3,000,000 live business men, are working for the Industrial develop ment of Southern cities and com munities. It is estimated that cap ital Is going into the far South at the present time at the rate of over 14,000,000 per week. THREATENING. Division 1, A. O. H., Going After Ita Careless Members. With President Tarpy in the chair Division 1, A. O. H., at the meeting Tuesday night decided to go alter those member, whose delinquencies retard the progress of the oldest di vision in tha city. Secretary Cusick will notify all members to be present at the meeting on April 15, when reports will be made and decided action taken to revive interest among the members in the work of the Ancient Order. One proposition for membership was received and an other candidate elected. President other candidates elected. President Tarpy announced the death of James Doran and an order was drawn for the payment of his death benefit. Action on a motion to meet but once a month during the summer waa de ferred for two weeks In order that a full expression may be had from the members. Division 1 has been under a heavy expense for sick and death benefits during the past six months, and in order to bring the trea.ury up to it. normal standing Messrs. William M. Hlggin., Walter Cusick and Joseph Farrell vre ap pointed a committee to recommend ways and meana for that purpose. AWARDED PIAXO.

POST KNOCKS PROGRESSIVES At the meeting of the Democratic City and County Committee on Mon day afternoon Frank McGrath, pres ent Chairman, was again .elected to ! pave the way for a continuation or the splendid Democratic successes of the, past years, and in thi. selection the committee made no mistake, hid proven ability making him the right I man fm tha ntnp. anil 1 f th. aoliuh.

CHAIRMAN proach, and above all a man of the people, Mr. McGrath possesses every characteristic necessary tor success ful political leadership, and the local Democracy ia to be congratulated in ita choice. After the election a ban quet waa aerved in the Italian room of the Tyler Hotel, at which talka were made by Col. John Whallen, County Attorney Scott Bullitt, John J. Barry, Frank Dugan, E. T. Schmltt, Judge Herman Gocke, W. P. McDonogh, Charlea Foster, Jack Shea, Lloyd Gatea, Joseph Overberg, James Fahey, Charles Barker and Theodore MoCrory. The Louisville Herald this past week attempted to arouse the public by stating that the McGrath-Whallen regime wanted to select Busche nieyer for Mayor and that he la not the people'a choice, but forgot to add that the above regime also selected Mayor Head, who, in the opinion of men of all political beliefs, baa made the best Mayor Louisville ever had, and If the Horald la as public spirited as it claims to be It should lose no time in securing a vote of thanks from our commercial bodies and the public In general for Messrs. McGrath and Whallen for their wise selection. The Kentucky Irish American has feldom found any thing in the Evening Post's political opinions worth an Indorsement, but the following from Editor Knott certainly aunts UD the oouular view of the local Progressive party: "All that the public knowa about this organization la that it ia bigoted apd Intolerant with ostracism organ ized into a system. There 1b no possibility of utilizing the so-called Progressive party, because It has gone up In smoke. The vote of last ran was primarily a Roosevelt vote, lit was made up largely of the work- logmen's vote and the colored men'a vote, and both the worklngmen and the colored men have abandoned the so-called Progressive party. A straight Progressive ticket, made up in acordance with the spirit that baa l controlled the so-called Progressive I Club, will not poll 3,000 votes in the city of Louisville." The altuatlon In Louisville ia no j different from that of Chicago and St. Louie, where in the eleotione of mis past week the Progressivea made a miserable showing, running behlud ths Soiialint party, and In the latter city only polled 4.611 votea out of a total vote cast of nearly HI, 000. As waa predicted In these column the week after our last election the Progressive were made a misfit party of aorehead Republicans Roosevelt ahouters and religious bigots, and our further prediction waa that many of them would be found trying to sneak back in the G. O. P., which Is being done here dally. The Post also aptly stated this week that municipal Improvement could only be found In selecting strong ticket at the Democratic primary, and Judging from the call ber of the men announcing dally this can easily be done. One of such announcements I. that of Dr. Harry E. Mechlin g for Coroner, who ha. a following in thi. city of young men of all parties second to none. Dr, Mechling's service a. physical direr tor at the Y. M. C. A. and his long career In the furtherance of amaleur athletica have won him a host of boosters, who are always ready to fall behind hla banner! In the Legislative races quite field is expected and good stand ard-bearers that will be a credit to Louisville will be chosen in the primary. In the Flrty-flfth district George B. (Cack) Barrett Is still In the field by himself, while Henry E. uwen s friends are persuading him to enter the race against the present Incumbent, Adam Spahn, tn the Forty-sixth district, and are already busy forming a working organization in hia interest. In the Forty-seventh distrltc popular Billy Kuh has no opposition and hi. splendid record is mucn in nis ravor. No announce ment, have been made In the Forty- seventn tnus rar or the Fiftieth, while Will Perry and Will Duffy are icampaigning in the Forty-ninth and rirty-rirst districts. X CITY AND COUNTY COMMITTEE. KETREAT. Brings Knights of Colum bus and Many Men to Cathedral. The retreat instituted by the Knight, of Columbus and conducted by Rev. Father Benedict Hanley, C.
