" ADDITIONAL HOUGHTON SATISFIED WITH SITE. Graham Pope Experts Shipment of Monument Base Soon. Graham Pope, donor of the proposed soldiers' monument to the village of Houghton, this morning expressed Ilia satisfaction with the site on Pearl ktrect selected by the council for the location of the statue. Mr. Pope would have preferred, however, to have It placed nearer the business section of the town. Dakota street near the bridge being In his opinion the best available site if arrangements could have been made Ut secure a narrow fctrln for the widening of the street, to allow of a driveway on either sido of the monument plat. He Is desirous of having the foun dation and curbing laid aH quickly as possible, In order that the cement may have time to set before the arrival of the large stones that are to be used In erecting the pedestal for the monu ment, nnd which he at any time ex pects to hear have been shipped from Chicago. "I wish," said Mr. Pope, "that peo ple would not refer to the soldiers' monument ns 'Graham Pope's Statue' or the 'Pope Monument.' as many have been doing. Some one remarked the other day 'It was a pity that they couldn't wait until Pope was dead be fore erecting a monument to him, evU dently having a ndstaken Idea as to the purposes of the monument. It re minds me of an incident that I noticed at Charleston, S. C, where a hotel keener wlto hail fought in the Confed erate army during the Civil Whr had a large statue of himself erected In one of the pnrks. It was dedicated to 'General' Wagner, but. I found that the man had not been an olllcer at all and had placed the title on the monument ho thought It would look well." DRAGGED FROM LAKE.
