Honor To Federal Dead.
Tributes Paid to Men Who Wore the
Blue by Distinguished Son of the
Southland Whoss Father and Kin
dred Wore the Orey Significant
Sign of the Changes Time Has
Wrought North and South United
Capt. Hichmonil Person Hobson, of
Alabama, delivered the memorial
j address in honor of the Federal dead
J at Detroit, Michigan, May 30th. He
j says he was never more touched by
j an invitation nor responded lo one
I more gladly. Following is a part of
' his s peach:
j "It .not only ;ives me pleasure to
; meet you and get a glimpse for the
lirst time of a part of the great State
1 of Michigan, but it stirs my heart in
; its depths to participate with you
in the exercises of this solemn day,
i which with the Fourth of July, should
; be foremost of the civic days of our
country. The Fourth of July marks
tin beginning and the Thirtieth of
May the perfecting and perpetuation
! of this glorious Union of ours.
I '! am fresh from mv home in the
; Southland where the gracious words
! of our president have touched every
I Southern heart. The time is ripe
there and I believe it is ripe in the
1 North and throughout the country
; for us all to come together to rejoice
: in the common joy over the glories of
both Federal and Confederate armies,
and over the self-sacriliee and devo
tion of iht: people on both sides, ami
I believe that in this I but voice the
sentiments of the Confederate vpI-
ans now assembled in Memphis,
nnessee, and of the I rand Army
posts now celebrating this dav.
"It touched me, a Southerner, very
deeply to be invited to the far North
to participate in the memorial exer
cises for the Federal dead. I wish
indeed that the States of the. South
would all adopt this day for Memorial
and Decoration Day for the Confeder
ate dead, and that the custom would
begin and become general for the
South to invite citizens of the North
to come South, and for the North to
invite citizens of the South lo come
North to join in a common memorial
celebration for the gallant dead of
both sides.
"Indeed I believe that the time is
ripe for us to look dispassionately
even on the conditions and causes of
the war. While the North has the
great glory of having preserved the
Union, it cannot deny the South its
joint, heritage of glory in the forma
tion of the Union and the guidance of
the Ship of State through almost a
century. In truth a study of history
convinces me that the American Civil
War was a sociological necessity,
that the question of the the relation
of the States to the Union, which,
under the loose conditions of the
bonds between the colonies, could not
be settled by our forefathers, even in
the wisdom and liberality that
brought them to form and adopt that
grand bulwark of Liberty, the Consti
tution of the United States, that this
all important question could only be
settled by war. if it was to be settled
permanently, and the more terrible
the war, the more permanent the set
tlement. Who now, or who in the
future, will ever dream even in de
liriam, of such a thing as secession?
Yet, before the war this thought was
a m.trhtmare on the minds of all our
patriotic statesmen.
"Moreover, the one additional
handicap to our free institutions, the
existence of slavery, was settled by
the same war that set at rest the
question of secession. I believe that
slavery as it had existed from the
foundation of our nation was a. part
of divine providence to redeem a por
tion of the benighted races 01 Atnca.
How else would natives ever have
been brought over? How else, even if
such a thing as voluntary immigration
could have taken place, could the un
hatmv emigrants have taken care of
themselves when found adrift in
new continent. How could they 111
such a condition have been brought
under the UDliftinsr influences of a
higher civilization? There is no an
swer except that slavery was for these
reasons necessary. Ana my irienas,
believe me, for I have seen the old
darkevs and have listened to their
accounts of the times before the war
that on the whole the condition of
slavery with the highly cultured peo
ple of the South was indeed a beneh-
cient one. I hus, instead or inexact
of slavery beirnr a blot, I consider it
in all its elements a credit to tne
South. And to it we must ascribe
the remarkable progress made by the
colored population in so short a time,
to it we must attribute this reserva
tion from the native populations of
Africa, which left to themselves are
gradually advancing to an inevitable
"On the other hand, that the con
dition of slavery had run its course,
that it was no longer necessary, that
preparation for freedom was prac
tically complete and, moreover, that
the abolition of slavery had become
necessary to make the avenue of
freedom "open for our country in its
advance upward with the principles
of universal and complete human
"To my mind it is doubtful whether
even this question of slavery could
have been settled without war. In
any event it waa settled with the
secession, and we have no cause for
reproach for either side. Our old
Constitution, an institution of our
forefathers had to be modified for the
perfection and future unlimited
greatness of our country; and it could
only be completely and permanently
modified by war. Indeed our sym
pathies must be with the South for
destiny decreed her the unhappy role
of opposition in a necessary war in
which we may say both sides were
right. Thus we can

whereas in the Civil War there were

highest case. In the Confederate
army there were lifty-three cases of
losses in single battles that exceeded
50 per cent, while the highest loss
ran up to the similarly fearful figure

Smile of Woman Beguiles the Old
Memphis, Tenn., May 30. Dallas
gets the next reunion.
A woman's smile, a dazzling smile
it was, beguiled the honor from the
veterans yesterday afternoon.
When in the course of the meeting
the matter of selecting the place for
next year's gathering was reached,
Mrs. Kate Cabell Curry, of Dallas,
Texas, a beautiful dark-haired young
woman, with flashing black eyes,
mantling cheeks and teeth like pearls,
stepped to the front of the rostrum
and stretched out her arms for si
lence. There was a burst of cheers from
the grizzled hundreds before her as
she came forward thus, and then a
hush fell upon the great assembly.
She waited, poised in the attitude
of supplication, a radiant picture
against the gray background of beard
ed, uniformed old soldiers, till perfect
iiiiiet ensued.
Then in clear, bell like tones that
carried to the farthest corners of the
great auditorium, she cried:
"Come, sweethearts, to Dallas,
won't you?"'
"We will! we will!" shouted tho
old soldiers quickly, cheering her

Colonel Bennett Young, of Louis

in his chair on the floor, and with a
courtly bow and trumpet voice,
shouted: "This is a very charming
surprise from Dallas, and surely such
loveliness is not to be denied what it
would have.
"But, comrades, if Dallas sends
beauty as its messenger, Louisville

(Atlanta Constitution.)
With the formal opening of the
Confederate Veterans' Home and the
impressive exercises held at the State
capitol, Atlanta's observance c(, the
birthday of the illustrious chieftain
of the Southern Confederacy of yes
terday was characterized by features
which will long make it famous in her
Civic leaders seldom receive much
of the homage which the world be
stows upon military heroes, and on
this account Mr. Davis not only suf
fers in comparison with the great
commanders who figured in the tragic
field operations of the Civil War, but
much of the obloquy growing out of
the South's unsuccessful struggle at
taches to him, as though he alone
was responsible for the consequences
which followed. Mr. Davis cannot
be charged either with precipitating
the war or with causing the defeat
which the war brought about. He
was the South's chosen leader for the
simple reason that his abilities enabled
him to command the respect and the
contidence of the South, whose devo
tion to the cause which he represent-
ed was absolute and uncompromising,
and so far as the result was concern
ed, it was nothing more nor less than
the decree of fate to which the South
was obliged to submit.
In this connection we reproduce, in
part, an editorial which recently ap
peared in the Springfield Republican,
published in the heart of New Eng
land, commenting at some length
upon the favor in which Gen. Lee is
growing in the. North, and, inciden
tally, commenting upon the attitude
of the North toward Mr. Davis. Says
this candid commentator:
"General Robert E. Lee seems to be
faring much better in the esteem of
posterity than Jefferson Davis at
least in the North, where formerly
the one was as much a rebel as the
other. The annual observance of
Memorial Day serves to emphasize
the fact, and this year more than be
fore has Northern appreciation of Lee
been manifested. The tablet to the
Confederate general in the New York
Hall of Fame apparently closes the
argument and fixes his name perma
nently among American heroes.
"Is Lee, in reality, more deserving
of this glorification than Davis? He
was a great, yet unsuccessful, soldier
Davis was an unsuccessful statesman
and nation builder, vet had he suc
ceeded he, too, would have been call
ed great, the inherence, then, is
this: A soldier can be unsuccessful
and still be great, while a statesman
can never be great and still be unsuc
"lhe distinction is odd, vet it is
one, apparently, that the world makes
Is it logical in the cases of Davis and
Lee? If you accept the theory that
the fall of the Confederacy was due
primarily to the superior resources of
the North, which were sure to prevail
in the end, Davis can be held no more
responsible personally for the down
fall than Lee. Both were in the grip
of forces which were beyond the power
of themselves or the people they led
to overcome. If Lee was a great gen
eral and admirably fitted for the posi
tion he occupied, then Davis must be
awarded the credit of having recog
nized the fact at the very outset of
the war and of having kept the gen-
eneral in his place until the last shot
was fired. Mr. Lincoln, shrewd as he
was, blundered steadily in his selec
tions of commanders for the army of
the Potomac until he hit upon Meade
in the summer of 1863, yet Davis,
with unerring judgment, quickly
fixed npon Lee as the military chief
tain of the Confederacy. It was
Davis who gave the Virginia soldier
his opportunity, and always the two
men worked in the completes! har
mony and trustfulness in each other.
"As for the motives of the two men
in making war in the effort to found
, a new nation, those of the one were as
! e as Qf the olher Davig
; F m co08cientious and consistent with
principle8. He even surpassed
General Lee in his belief in theSouth-
ern cause, for the soldier hesitated to
the last before casting his lot with
the Confederacy,

mately than his superior, who was
the political leader of the Southern
people. One reason for this mav be
that admiration for military trenius
is irrepressible, while there is always
a disposition to isolate the soldier
from the political cause he contended
for when his career is being studied.
The French admire and applaud
Moltke, while their detestation of Bis-
mark endures; and the British will
long revile Kruger, while honoring
Joubert, Botha and DeWet."
While this editorial will be warmly-
appreciated throughout the South, it
will make good reading Tor the coun-
try at large, aud we cordially com
mend it to our friends at the North.

An examination of the list shows
that the University Publishing Com

number of the books adopted, having
received the award in Histories, Geog

mars go to Newsom & Company, of
Philadelphia; the Arithmetics to B. F.
Johnson & Co., of Richmond: the
Spellers to American Book Company,
of New York: while Johnson & Co.,
and Heath & Co., of New York, share
the copy books, Johnson & (Jo. get
ting the' best of the division, as that
company gets the slant copy b.xks,
while Heath & Co. get the vertical.
Language Lessons also go to Heath
& Co.
Not a single book on the list has
been secured by Ginn & Co., of New
York, and this is one of the surprises,
as it has been thought on the outside
that a goodly share of the books would
go to them, it having been understood
that the sub-commission recommend
ed a number of their books.
The estimate is that under the new
contracts the reduction in price is 35

Virginia's Apples at the Biz Show
Richmond Should Have a Tobacco
Exhibit Alabama's State House ia
Corn The Agricultural Exhibit of
Missouri Interesting; Exhibit From
the State Department Negro Ex
hibit in the Liberal Arts Department.
(Special Correspondence of the Uold Leaf . )
Buffalo, N. Y., June 13, '01.
Virginia's exhibit of apples is
attractively displayed in the Horti
culture Building and general regret
is expressed that Richmond did not
at least exploit her fine tobaccos
here. Other cities, which cannot
compare with the Capitol of the Old
Dominion as tobacco manufacturing
centers, have spent hundreds of dol
lars in exhibiting to Pan-Americans
what they can do in this direction.
As the factories of Richmond are fed
by the products of the rich golden
tobacco belt of North Carolina it
would have paid two States to have
had a full exhibit here Perhaps it
is not yet too late, and if one or two
energetic men will take hold of it
now, the Exposition authorities will
cordially co-operate with them.
Alabama made an appropriation of
$5,000 for the Pan-Ameriean Exposi
tion. The State?s commissioners
have been on the ground less than a
week and they did uot begin to in
stall their products until Saturday,
but the work was all finished Monday
night. The commission is composed
of three members, K. F. Poole, J. C.
Adams and L. W. Gorman, the last
of whom will remain in constant
charge of the exhibit through the
Exposition period. Mr. Gorman is a
newspaper man from Opelika, Ala
bama. The installation in the Agri
culture Building is very artistic and
for the amount of money used makes
a most creditable display. What
attracts most attention is the State
House at Montgomery reproduced in
corn. It is the old colonial style of
architecture, with a long piazza in
front which is of especial historic in
terest because it was here JetTerson
Davis took the oath of oflice as Presi
dent of the Southern Confederacy.
Cotton as well as corn is conspicuous,
though the Alabama pavillion contains
about every agricultural product
known to America. Commissioner
Gorman says:
"We can grow pretty near anything
in almost auy part of Alabama. A
farmer comes into the State a stranger.
He plants anything he wants to and
get a good crop. There is no weather
like this in Alabama. Trees are in
leaf there the year round. I hope
this weather changes soon, but if this
is the kind of weather you produce in
Buffalo, then I hope I will get accli
mated as soon as possible."
Mr. E. S. Fursman, the corn king
of Illinois says if he were a younger
man he would -'pull up stakes and
emigrate to Alabama." He adds,
"Though I am too old to go myself I
have sent a number of young men
there. It is a great State and is going
to be a greater one."
Mr. Robert M. Yost, Secretary of
the Missouri Commission says: "Corn
is Missouri's biggest specialty. She
raised 195,000,000 bushels in 1900.
She still hangs on to her mule indus
try, too. She produced mules to the
value of $20,000,000 last year. Her
chickens are becoming famous all
over the country. The value of the
poultry produced last year was $20,
000,000. In that year she also pro
duced $95,000,000 worth of cattle,
$15,000,000 worth of hogs, $50,000,
000 worth of horses, $9,000,000 worth
of zinc and lead ore, 16,000,000
bushels of wheat, 30,000,000 bushels
of oats, and 40,000 bales of cotton.
These and other statistic about the
State are given on charts placed
about the booth. They show at a
glance what the State is doing in agri
culture and other industries."
The Missouri pavillion in the Agri
culture Building is arranged with
great taste. In the center is a blue
tower of octagonal shape, 34 feet
high. It is topped by a shock of
grain, bearing tne name ami arms 01
Missouri. This banner is higher than
anv other exhibit object in the build
ing and can be seen from nearly all
the doors leading into the building.
In the lower part of the grain tower
is shown behind panel of grass.
Arranged in glass cases aud jars on
step-like shelves beginning at the
floor and extending to a height of six
feet, are oats, wheat, over 1O0 varie
ties of shelled corn, manv kinds of
timothv seed, beans and peas. Huge j
cauliflowers, musknielons and car
rots, preserved in liquid, are shown
in large bottles. On the counter
forming the Northern boundary of
the booth rests a squash weighing 81 1
pounds. It is said, too, that this isn t
much of a wonder in Missouri, but
that squashes often grow to that size
there. However, the enthusiastic
superintendent of the exhibit, J, E.
Crumbaugh, of Columbia, Mo., ad
mits that the average Missouri squash
is a trifle smaller.
Exhibits of cotton and wool are
shown, for Missouri does quite a busi
ness in both. One case shows the
different stages of wool, from the
fleece of the sheep to the manufac
tured cloth.
There is a eronp of "official treat-
iti" in the exhibit of the Department
I of State, which excites much curios
1 ity. One of these is written in Greek
j on a slab of white Pentelican marble,
i It was found among the ruins of the
j Acropolis and belongs to the age of
j Pericles. It is a treaty between the
j Athenians and Chalcideans. The
j translation, made by Professor Basil
Gildersleeve, Johns Hopkins Univer
1 Ritv. accompanies it: It was sent to
United States Department of State
by Merideth Read when he was Min
ister to Greece, but has never before
been permitted to leave the Depart
ment Building at Washington.
Another curious "treaty" is in tbe
form of fhe tooth of a sea mnster
presumably a shark, sent to the Presi
dent of the United States bv the
Chief of the Fiji Islands. There are
many others, but these two repre
sent the extremes of foreign diplo
matic negotiations. This group was
selected by Major William II. Michael,
the Chief Clerk of the Department and
its able representative on the Govern
ment Board.
The negro exhibit which was at tbe
Paris Exposition has been installed
in the Liberal Arts Building. It shows
th negro of tbe South as he was at
the time of emancipation and as he it
today, "Progress of Negro Education"
is the subject of an instructive group.
This shows a white frame school
house of the district school type, of
the date of 1879, used by colored
children. The next group", "Educa
tional Results" shows a crowd of well
dressed, intelligent boys and girls,
who are attendants at the negro high
school in Washington, D. C. "Invest
ment in High School Education" is
represented by a model of the large
four story brick negro school at the
National Capitol.
Not quite so graphic, but no less
instructive, are the series of photo
graphic frames showing tho different
educational institutions which have
been built throughout the South for
the education of colored youth. A
few schools are represented bv "be
fore and after
pictures showing them j
after thev have been at the institu
tion a yenr or two, or when they have
completed the course. Iu the latter
pictures they appear as well dressed,
intelligent men and women, whose
latent capabilities are plainly indi
cated. Among the schools represented in
the pictorial -display are: The Hamp
ton Normal and Agricultural Insti
cultural Institute, Hampton, Va. ;
Fisk University, Nashville, Tenn.:
Tougaloo University, Tougaloo. Miss. ;
Rerea College, Rerea, Ky.; Shaw Uni
versity, Raleigh, N. C. ; Roger Wil-i
Hams University, Nashville, Tenn.;
Union University, Richmond, Va.,
Challin University, Orangeburg, S.
C; Haines Normal and Industrial In
stitute, Atlanta. Ga. ; Howard Univer
sity, Washington, I). C. ; Lincoln In
stitute, Negro State Normal School,
Jefferson City, Mo.; Agricultural and
Mechanical College, Greensboro. N.
C. ; Tuskagee Normal and Industrial
Institute, Tuskagee, Ala. This is
the school founded and largely main
tained through the efforts of Booker
T. Washington.
To show the present prosperity of
the industrious, educated negro, there
is a series of photographic frames
giving views of the home, interior
and exterior, of well-to-do negroes in
manv of the large Southern cities.
None of these is palatial, but all of
them show the comfort and good
taste of the occupants. Affording a
comparison between the past and the
present, the last frame in this scries
shows the old fashioned log cabin
home, of the slavery days. People
who think the negro is without capac
ity for business, will have something
to think about after they have seen
the series of pictures devoted to the
display of business institutions, own
ed and operated colored by men. The
largest business in which they are en
gaged is a cotton mill in North Caro
lina, which is owned by a company
composed exclusively of negroes, ft
is the onlv cotton mill so owned in
the United States. In the remaining
pictures of the series there are shown
iron foundries, steam laundries,
hotels, contracting outfits and stores
of all kinds owned and run by negroes.
One omission the negroes have made
in this and all their previous statistics
and exhibits. They have never shown
the part they bore in the Revolution
ary War. There were about a dozen
negroes in the Rattle of King's Moun
tain, a negro named Rowman having
fired the fatal shot that killed the
gallant Captain Ferguson, the British
commander. My authority for this
is an old book in the Library of Con
gress. From the same source, I
learned that several took part in tbe
battle of Guilford Court House and in
other battles fought on Southern terri
tory. I know of a number of daring
acts performed by the negro servants
of voung Southern officers in the late
war. The slave of a brave oflicer who
fell near Richmond went through a
hail of shots to secure tbe body of his
young master when he saw him fall
riddled with bullets. He got tbe
body and a slignt wound and car
tied it home to the family where it
was buried in the plantation ceme
tery. Being of Southern birth and
breeding, with all of similar educa
tion, I know of and gladly admit all
thai is best and noblest in negro
Drive It Home.
(Tlie Tiaveling Tartner.)
Some men think that by making a
great stir for a little time thev will
gain a (erruanent advantage. This
is far from the truth. How quickly
a thing i forgotten if it is not con
tinuously advertised It is said the
public have bad memories, but per
haps they try and rrowd too muc h in
them, line event usurps anoiner id
importance, and the panorama of
daily incidents diverts the mind from
ceaseless concentration on one par
ticolar thing. Day by day the happen
ings increase in number and impor
tance, and the public mind is ever be
ing conducted to a new channel of
thought and consideration. Tbe neces
sitv for continuous advertising was
nevermore pronounced than at tbe
present time. A passing flash causes
but a moment's reflection. Perma
nent drive-it-home advertising makes
an impression that lasts.
