UiM-ert Toombs sent a letter to Chi-e-igo
avowing extreme secession views
and his opinions might have created a
sensation, had it, not been that think

ignored his opinion since the war, and
mainly because he had promised to

it does not come no congressional

Sonic writer complains that while
monuments have been erected to the

George Washington, who was first, in
various IhingH-, is allowed to1 languish.
The rea.-oni for the-. d'HVrenco is too
plain. If about two-thirds of all the
folks in this great and glorious etc.,
will set in and abuse George a while,
the other third will whoop- that 500
feet monument up to its full height
and add an extra hundred or two, just
to show wlit they cando. Why, ev

The womans right theory is making

That the Chinese should bring abcit

and China led the Japanese Govern
ment to pin-chase in Fiudand a num
ber of very heavily armored' vessels
for offensivo operation? along the
coast of China. Thereupon, the Ohin
