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
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

There is no yellow fever in
Memphis. 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
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.
