It is important that the people of Columbus should sustain her system of public school s. There fore when men of the old board of trustees auuounce that they will retire when their present term of office expires and will not be candidates for re-election the question of providing their successors should receive consid eration. Dr. K. S. Curry, who has served on the board of trustees for twelve years and who has given the school problem caretul thought and study with a view of giving the city a system com mensurate with its needs, an nounces that under no circum stances will he again serve in this capacity. Dr. Curry states that lie has served long in this position and is entitled to a re tirement and he insists that the position should be tilled by others. This leaves three of the old board Messrs. Wm. Newby, Wm. Kilpatrickand W. C. Gun ter who are considered as pos sible candidates. They take the position, as every gentleman should, that the office is entirely honorary, it is fraught with important duties and re sponsibilities and if it is the wish of the people that they serve them in this capacity they will do so. They are not in any sense candidates and will not be unless the people ask that they run. The board is composed of four men and the retirement of Dr. Currj leaves a vacancy. The elec tion occurs at the same time that other officers of the city are selected and this is early in May. Since it has become known that Dr. Curry of the present board will not be a candidate several names have been suggested as his successor. The trustee of the school has to be a pation ofitaud among the names sug gested are William Rhett, G. F. Brown, W. N.Puckett and osiers. The matter is before the com munity now and no doubt the people will make no mistake iu the selection of aboard whi -h will maintain the well earned reputa tion wl ich this city enjoys in this respect.

It is a sacred and beautiful custom which the people of the by Mrs. Sheffield, Miss Daisy Chapsky received the -announce-South established and which Sherril and Miss Annie Wade ment of the sudden death of thev still adhere to. the decora tion of the graves of the soldiers of the Confederacy. It P r o claims their love and loyalty to Anvcn tboir- livna in ripfpnco nf their country and it teaches present generations of the valor and heroism of those who wore the gray. It is peculiarly appro- priate that the people of Columbus should still observe this touching lete. It was here that it had its origin, it was here that flower first fell alike upon Federal and Confederate grave and that too at a time when the country vas rent in twain by the ravages of war and when the first memorial day brought to the people a hope that some day they would be unit ed as a nation, as a people again. The custom established by the gentlewomen of this city years and years ago has grown until North and South it is recognized and year after year the people rather to honor the memory Gf their soldier dead. It is well then that Columbus still reveres the memory of the soldiers who wore the gray and that all cares and responsibilities of the battle of life are laid aside for the period while our people unite in this sacred and beautiful celebration. It was held yesterday. This date had been hot apart by the Confederate Veterans and the Daughters of the Confederacy and every arrangement made for its observance. Despite the weather, which was biting cold and very disagreeable, a large number participated in the Cele bration. Towards ten o'clock the people began assembling at the Court House where the pro cession was formed. Some delay ensued in waiting for the arrival of the Lee Guards from the A. and M. College but they wheeled into line at 11:30 o'clock and the parade started to the cemetery. The procession was under command of Hon. Edwin T. Moore as marshal with Messrs. W. C. McClure, Chas. W. Hale and O. M. Lawrence as aids. Following the marshal with his staff came the veterans under command of Maj. Thos. Harrison, Adjutant of Isham Harrison Camp and headed by Gen. Stephen D. Lee and Col. W. C. Richards. The company of old soldiers numbered about half a hundred and it consisted of members of Isham Harrison Camp, E. C. Leech Camp and other veterans, a pitiful remnant of a once great and glorious army. Following the veterans came the A. and M. College boys one company, the Lee Guards, named after Gen. Lee, first pres ident of the College, the com mand officered by Capt. S. M. Hearon and Lts. W. B. Crump and N. M. Parker. Following the cadets were the members of the local chapter of Daughters of the Confederacy in carriages preceded by the orator of the oc casion, Rev. Dunbar Hunt Ogden. Citizens in carriages completed the procession to the cemetery. Arriving at the cemetery Ex- Lieutenant Governor James T. Harrison in a fewT words an nounced t h e program. The ceremonies were opened with prayer by Rev. J. B. Oakley after which the veterans held a short but impressive service with reading by Col. W. C. Rich ards and responses by the com pany. Gen. Lee was next called on to read te rules for the be stowal of Crosses of Honor and did so begining with a few graceful words of praise and thanks to the United Daughters of the Confederacy as an organi zation and especially to the local chapter for the interest they had shown i n keeping alive th e memories of the Confederate soldiers. Mrs. G. EL Mathis as President of the TJ n i t e d Daughters of the Confederacy, next addressed those who were to received the Crosses of Honor, wnicn were atterwards bestowed - UiSeUl. This part of thp pre cram completed. Kev. D. ti - ea, me speaker 01 tne aay, was introduced. Mr. Ogden's I address was short, being of aoout ten minutes duration, lie first spoke to the veterans not as a body cme to mourn over au inglorious defeat or men made sad by the consciousness of having fought for a Lost Cause, but as thc remnant of a gallant I J 1 J " 1 A - h14" Luat uyeu vluulwteu b history from any charge of saving lought trom base and low motives and lor a treasonable rau A lJI J.uuus meu ttuu Maaies he brought a message of a lesson learned from those who had bled for the Confederacy, that "great crises do not make the man, but only serve to pro duce and put to use that which is born in him." With a short eulogy on the loaders of the cause and those who served under them Mr. Ogden closed his address- The graves of the dead were then decorated and two salutes tired in their honor by th Lee Guards. , The following were awarded crosses: D. A. Bardwell, H. G. Bard- well, J. M. Breazeale, J. G. Car- roil, VV. ftl. Chiles-, J. A. caroth- ers, Dr. Wm. Edwards, C. E. Gay, J. B. Glenn, J. B. Hudson, J. W. Howard, F. E.

A. EcuusToa. Sheriff. A Street Car Line. With the healthy, solid and substantial progress of Colum bus, with the gradual advance ment of the city, with the in crease of her population comes the question of a car line. A few years ago when the local light company renewed its con tract with the city for the public lighting it stated that it endeav ored the country over to find some one who would take the bonds of a car line compauy here, but without success. It further averred that it would install and operate a car line in this city just as soon as the city's growth would justify it. It is believed with the secure ment of the khittiDg mill and the natural increase of population which will follow this enterprise and the removal of the stove works to this city that every condition here will fully warrant and sustain the establishment of car line in Columbus. Even should the local company not I care to undertake sucn an invest- 1" .A 1 A 1 .1 ? A.

The acquirement of large sub urban interests by local capital ists has stimulated interest in this movemeut-to a great extent and it is being discussed on all hands as one of the things Co lumbus needs most. There is sufficient capital here to estab lish such a plant and it would not be surprising within the next few months for this movement to be put well underway. The car line is the thing. Strayed.
