T!iE COLUMBUS DISPATCH.
P. W. Maer, Lessee and Manager. Entered at the po.-t.mje in Columbus. Miss, a. second-class mail matter. THE CONFEDERATE MONUMENT. Last Tuesday the monument to the Second Tennessee Infantry, Bate's regiment, was unveiled on Shiloh battlefield. During the past year a laree . number of monuments have been erfcted in the Southland to , the h?roes of the Confederacy and vithin the last few months the Jefferson Davis Monument Func7 has been completed. For this tie Daugh ters of the Confederacy have labored long and ovingIy and when it is placed m Richmond, not only the SoutN but the Nation will feel a pridf therein. We are gre just in propor tion to the rPeet and veneration we show oc the heroes of our land, anr'when love of the brave, the ide1 anc the heroic dies in the hait of the Nation then is the -ory f that people altogether a .ing of the past. An effort is being made to juild a memorial to the Confed erate dead of Lowndes county which will be placed in Columbus, the county seat. The movement has met with encouragement and already a measure of success. This town is conceded by everybody to be the best and most progressive in the State. In it we would build a monument that would adorn and beautify it and commemorate in a fitting way the grand and spot less record of the Lowndes coun ty soldiers. Interest and aid are essential. Without them we can do nothing. It is to be built by the people. It will belong to the people. It is but right that each citizen give it his personal sup port. The work was started with a view of placing the monument at the intersection of Main and Market streets but a good many have suggested the city park as a more suitable place. The Bradford square would be an ideal situation for the monument if the city owned it but at present it is merely leased. This 'will, however, be settled at some future date in the most satisfactory manner possible. For the present the most important thing is to collect the funds. Every contri bution, no matter how small, helps. Amounts can be placed in the small banks which are in all the drug stores or sent to any member of the board of trustees. Three persons are willing to give o00 (i0 if ten can be found. Who will be the fourth ? THE FEVER SITUATION The outbreak of fever at Natchez and other points should not alarm tne people or cause them to lose their heads. W ith the knowledge of the fever sup pressed for sixty days in New Orleans and free intercourse be tween that city and the South, the marvel is that it has not ap peared iu other localities. In truth, yellow fever has lost its horrors for the South and the whole country. The time for epidemics like that of 1878 has passed and science has found a weapon with which to con trol the disease. WheD this fact is universally recoguized and people co-operate with the officers in dealing with the scourge, yellow fever will occa sion no alarm- The present outbreak is not one to alarm the people. Al though the death rate of an epi demic cannot be determiued until it has ended, it is low enough in the present instance as to trive those afflicted little concern. Up to date it has been about eleven per cent, and while, with the approach of the fall months it will probably in crease, its per centage will riot be so high as in former out- Truly the situation is not bad and the people should not be alarmed over it. The fever has another month and a half to ruu" before the frost will put an end to the mosquitoes but the passing of the fever this year will mark the end of the yellow fever epidemics for the South. Atlanta's mayor, Jas, G. Wood ward, has again distinguished himself. He has committed this feat several times before but the place was in his home town and home folks are wont to overlook and forgive. This time Mayor Woodward selected Toledo, Ohio, for his exhibition. Sent to that city as a delegate to the meeting of the League of American Muni cipalities, representing the "Gate way of the South," as Atlanta is being advertised in these ye! low fever times, he elected to make a speech on the question of muni cipal ownership. He fortified himself for his task by very com fortably filling up on mint juleps, high balls and otier com binations which haraly a Ken tuckian can resist much less a Georgian, and selected an oppor- J tune time for his grand entree, just after Mayor Dunne, of Chicago, had finished a very ex haustive study of the municipal question. Woodward managed to get upon the platform and as that edifice covered quite an area he had room to keep his feet during his tirade. He de nounced everything, said he knew more about municipal ownership than Tom Johnson or Dunne, said that he owned Atlanta and many other equally ridiculous and silly things. He finally be came so violent and boisterous that: the delegates left, leaving the Atlanta man sawing the air to empty benches. He broke up the meeting. There is talk of im peachment in Atlanta, but it will amount to nothing. Atlanta must have her sensations and why not have the Mayor furnish one occasionally. Greenwood . has quarantined Birmingham, not because there is any yellow fever in the Magic City, but because it is alleged that physicians or irresponsible officers have made a practice of selling health certificates indis criminately. The' same reason has caused Columbus to draw the line tighter in its dealing with the health authorities of Georgia. In several instances it is reported that people have come from the Georgia capital to Columbus up on certificates, which certified nothing, and it has been made necessary to have all certificates official from the Atlanta town. Just upon what information the Greenwood citizens are acting we do not know but if health cer tificates are 3old without regard to reason in Birmingham, it will be well for the people of Colum bus to interpose additional pro tective precautions.

To settle the many alarming and misleading reports which have been circulated over the State for the past ten days, the Governor and Dr. Hunter, president of the State Board of Health, visited that city last Sun day and spent several hours in what was supposed to be the fever district, interviewing the people and making a rigid per personai investigatien. When they had finished they had a lengthy conference with the Memphis health officials which confirmed what they had found out and both issued cards that there was no fever in Memphis. This statement is accepted with out reservation to Mississip pians. . - While the country has accepted the estimate that the President is a streneous and aggressive man, eager and ready for a fight or fray, it is pleasing to contemplate the other side of his character, that is the side which makes for peace. In all of the negotiations for peace at Portsmouth the president's personality has been recognized and in every emergen cy presented he has been equal to it . with rare diplomacy, fine tact and unlimited resourceful ness. The conference will give the country a new estimate of the man and will serve to place him in the catagory of great men where he belongs. The larion-Ledger announces that it will soon begin to issue a morning edition of its paper. This would give the Capital a morning and an afternoon paper, some thing which would be appreciated by the patrons of the Jackson press. Vard man's card about Mem phis was better than Atlanta's page ad about that city. The people know that their Governor would not mislead them in an important crisis like this. Mobile has put herself in Havana's class and is now quarantining against everything. Farm Near Dunbar.
