Our readers are familiar with the
Sampson-Schley controversy. It
will be remembered that while the
former was in command of our navy
when Cervera's fleet was cstroy-
ed, he was absent and did not
take part in its destruction. The
work was accomplished by Rear
Admiral Schley, although Admiral
Sampson was given the credit.
The Commercial Appeal, in order
to show the appreciation of the pub
lic of Schley's services, is soliciting
ten cents contributions, for the pur
Pose f purchasing a medal to be
presented to him. bo far over one
thousand dollars have been raised
by popular subscription, and the
amount increases daily.
Miss Myrtle True, i patriotic lit
tle lady, who believes in giving
cridit to whom credit is due, has

by raising a fund here, which has
