destruction, although its retreat is en

Gift to France By the Knights of Col
umbus of America Stands' on
Eminence Dominating Val
ley of the Moselle.
Metz, Alsace Lorraine, Aug. 21 (By
the Associated Press). The statue of
Lafayette, presented to France by the
Knights of Columbus of America, was
unveiled to-day by Supreme Knight
James A. Flaherty of Philadelphia.
Most of the population of Metz cheered
when Mr. Flaherty drew aside, the silk
sheet veiling the Btatue, which stands
on an eminence dominating the valley
of the Moselle.
In hit speech of presentation, Mr.
Flaherty said: "This noble figure of a
French nobleman denotes more clo
quently than I can say the nature of
this gift from the Knights of tolumbus
to the republic of France in memory of
our common dead, who perished so that
the liberty that Lafayette and Wash
ington fought for and won might be
preserved to the world."'
Mr. Flaherty said that the Knights
of Columbia), as Catholic citizens of
America, desired by this memorial to
commemorate foever the holy bond
of union between France and America,
sealed by the blood of the Freuch and
American hero dead.
William P. Larkin of New York, su
preme director of the Knights of Col
umbus, delivered the oration of the
day . He reviewed the historic rela
tions between France and the United
States, and told of the French Catholic
clergy collecting $6,000,000 to aid the
colonies of America.
"We of America can never forget
the pastorals issued by the bishops of
France urging the people of France to
aid America in those trying days," he
continued. "It is altogether fitting
and appropriate that the Knights of
Columbus should select this hUtorle
spot as the object of their pilgrimage.
for was not Metz the starting point of
Lafayette's American career!"
And was it not in Mezt that, 100
years afterward, within the sacred
precincts of St. Clement's college, Mar
shal Ferdinand Foeh, the hero of the
war, was laying deep the foundations
of that character and genius which, in
later years, stood civilization in such
stead and saved France!"
"Mr. Larkin said the Knights of Col
umbus welcomed the opportunity to
symbolize the age-old binding Ameri
ca to France. He declared the organi
zation had chosen Lafayette because he
typified pre-eminently and beyond all
others the incarnation of France's fra
ternal feelings towards America
throughout the centuries and because
he was a loved and trusted friend of
Hugh C. Wallace, the American am
bassador, in his address discussed the
Russian situation in describing La
fayete's "service to an ideal.'"
"What would this great apostle of
liberty think of the crimes being com
m it ted to-day in the name of liberty!"
the ambassador said. "The madmen
who have clothed, themselves with brief
authority are trying to barter a bogus
mess of pottage for suppression of the
civilized constlcnce and recognition of
their government. , Notwithstanding
their crimes, the great people whom
we know as Russians will, in the provi
dence of Uod, come out of their present
darkness into the light.
"Those among them who lion"t!y
are deceived will cease to follow their
false prophets and the nation will turn
to its wise men and through them es
tablish government worthy to en
dure. The imperial autocracy one de
throned on the battlefield is not to
rise again through the excesses of
barbarous proletariat, nor can tl.e
great battle of civilization won in the
west liel ost.
Mr. Wallace retold the car-er of
Lafavette and his relations with the
Americans, "who took him to their
hearts." He descrilied Washington's
and Jefferson's efforts to obtain la-
favette's release from an Austrian
prison so that he might come to the
L'nited States. The ambassador quoted
Lafavette's answer to Talleyrand, who
had offered him the ministry to the
l'nited States. "I am too much an
American to present myself in the part
of a foreign diplomat."
A great company of notable persons
representing i'.e French and Anvrian
governments, the prelate nd armies
of both countries were on the platform.
Among them were Marshal Forh. Min
ister of Justice LUfpitean, Bishop
Pelt, General Johnson, commander of
the 91t division. Dr. Marcel Knwht,

sion to the l'nited State, and he mu

During the Fighting Between Bandits
and British and Greek Troops on
Eastern Shore of Bosphorus.
I Constantinople, Aug; 21. Many
Americans have had narrow escapes in
the fighting which British and Greek
troops have kept up for several weeks
wjth the bandits which are harassing
the eastern shore of the Bosphorus.
Beikos, a summer place 10 rarles north
of this city, reached by hourly ferry
service, has been the chief center of the
flgrts, between bands of adherents of
Mustapha Keml Pasha, nationalist
leader, and the British-Greek soldiers
operating under the artillery protec
tion of British warships.
An American oil company is erect'
ing two great steel tanks at Beikos
which came well within the line of
fire between the rival forces. The steel
riveters were compelled to flee for
their lives and for several days bul
lets played a tattoo on the tanks
which was nearly as constant a the
tune of the riveting machines. Many
Americans were in summer camps and
cottages in the vicinity of Beikos the
night the fighting began, but they
speedily moved to the western shore of
the Bosphorus, where it was possible1
for several nights to watch the fight
ing on the Anatolian hills by the light
of the naval rockets and searchlights
used in directing the gunnery. Robert
college and Constantinople college for
for women, the two Amrican institu
tion of higher learning on the Bos
phorus, both commanded an excellent
view of the struggle and were safely
out of range of the nationalist bullets.
Professor F. W. Kelsey of the Uni
versity of Michigan wa prevented by
the fighting In Anatolia from making a
survey of the famous battlefields of
Ca'sar, south of Samsoun. Professor
KejKey haa been in Turkey for many
weeks investigating old manuscripts
and-studying ruins of the Roman civili
zation. He hoped to make the trip from
Samsoiin to Zile, about which uu of
Ciesar'a best-known campaign was
waged, and had made all arrangements
for motor tranortation. But the un
settled political conditions and the ac
tivities of the various bands forced him
to abandon the expedition.

War Correspondent Sibley
Will Tell His Interest
ing Story of the 26th
Bulletin No. five of the Vermont de
partment of the American Legion, just
issued' from department headquarters,
announces a program for the Barre
convention, August 30 and 31, which
assures a very interesting meeting for
the Y'erwont legionaries. General Ed
wards, now commanding the northeast
ern department and the famous 26th
division leader, is expected for the pub
lie meeting in the opera house Monday
evening. Frank P. Sibley, famous war
correspondent of the Boston Globe, will
tell his famous story of the Yankee di
vision at this meeting.
The convention will continue through
Tuesday, when delegates will be elect
ed to the national convention and im
portant amendments to the department
constitution will be considered. The
Barre board of trade is cooperating
with the Barre post of the Legion in
providing a lunch at Williamstown
gulf and automobile trip to the quar
ries and the new Barre aviation field
where Major Drenan, air service officer
of the northeastern department, is ex
pected to arrive from Boston. All in
all the second convention of the Legion
is likely to duplicate in pep and en
thusiasm the celebrated first conven
tion held in Burlington a year ago.
It is especially fortunate that the
Legion is to hear Frank P. Sibley cf
the Boston Globe, known to every man
of the 20th division and to thousands
a!' over New England as the war corre
spondent for his paper w-ith the Yankee
division. Since his return from France
he has been speaking constantly and
has come to be recognized as one of
the most vivid speakers on the subject
of the boys who went from New Eng
land. No other correspondent knows the
daily life and. the heroic actions of the
New England boys so intimately as Mr.
Sibley. Hi long training as an observer
and his facility of expression have
made him a speaker of more than usual
Mr. Sibley has come to crystallize
from the experiences of American citi
zens in the war and his own observa
tions thereon a belief that the satis
faction always felt by the man who
has served ought to be capitalized by
our country. He has formulated this
in a lecture of intense patriotic fervor
and has illustrated every point of hi
argument with incidents so pungent
and with facts so significant that he
has met with universally favorable re
sponse throuaji a year and a half
speaking on the average three times a
Mr. Sibley's own personality is best
known as that of a rather humorous,
dry Yankee and his talk, though al
ways earnest, is illumed with many
good stories and flashes of typical New
England humor".
