THE CONFEDERATE REUNION.
Gen. Clement A. Evans, in Orders.
Takes Particular Notice of
Wirz Shaft and Restora
tion of Davis' Name
on Cabin Bridge.
New Orleans, La., May 30.—Gen.
Clement A. Evans, commander-in-chief
of the ITnited Confederate Veterans,
and those who are making plans for the
reunion which will be held in Memphis
on June 8, 9 and 10, are determined
that there shall be no grounds for the
charge that the old veterans them
selves have been slighted during the
festivities, or that social features at
the gathering have overshadowed the
parts played by the men whose careers
have made the reunion possible.
Memphis will make the treatment of
the old veterans and the hospitality
shown the men who fought the South’s
battles from 1861 to 1365 the principal
feature of the reunion of 1909, although
nothing will be lacking in the way of
elaborate entertainment for all who at
tend. The hospitality of the people of
Tennessee on former occasions has re
cently been the subject of several or
ders issued by the general commanding,
and to-night Gen. William E. Mickle,
adjutant-general and chief of staff, by
command of Gen. Evans, published
several orders touching upon what
would be expected of those who will
enjoy this hospitality, and laying down
certain restrictions. General Order
No. 14 says:
“As there prevails among the mem
bers of our federation a great deal of
uncertainty as to what provision will
be made by the Memphis reunion com
mittee for the enertainment of the
sponsors and maids of honor who may
be in attendance at the approaching re
union, the General commanding feels
that he should let those interested un
derstand exactly what will be done.
“The committee is very desirous that
there should be a large attendance of
sponsors and maids of honor from de
partments, divisions, brigades and
camps; and are determined to do ev
erything possible to render pleasant
the sojourn of all sponsors and maids
who come to Memphis, and shall see
that they are supplied with invitations
to the various balls and entertainments
that are given ; but the committee can
not attempt to meet the hotel expenses
of the two thousand who will be pres
ent, or provide them with escorts or
.carriages. These must be provided by
those who elect the young ladies to
these positions. Neither can the com
mittee allow them in the parade, even
though they supply themselves with
carriages, as the line must be made as
short as possible, that the old heroes,
for whose pleasure the reunions are
given, who are rapidly growing fewer
in number and feeble in body, may not
be shut out of the entire line of march.
The only provision that the reunion
committee will make will be to supply
hotel accommodations at the Peabody
Hotel (the general headquarters) for
one sponsor and one maid of honor
from general and department headquar
ters for June 8, 9 and 10; and furnish
carriages for them and for the sponsors
and maids from divisions in the pa
Gen. Evans also takes official cogni
zance of the restoration of the name of
Jefferson Davis on the Cabin John
Bridge, near Washington, D. C., say
“The General commanding also takes
pleasure in expressing the satisfaction
he feels in announcing officially that
the name of Jefferson Davis has been
[restored to the tablet on ‘Cabin John
| Bridge.’ As Secretary of War of the
' United States Mr. Davis had been
| largely instrumental in constructing
j this aqueduct, and commemorating this
j feat his name, with others, had been
placed on the tablet; but during the
i War Between the States partisans
I caused it to be chiseled off. Mr. Davis
' being at that time the President of the
Confederate States. By this restora- j
tion an act of justice has been done to j
one of America’s greatest statesmen.
The fact in itself is triviai. but it is mo
mentous in significance. It emphasizes
the truth that our countrymen will rec
ognize worth ; that Mr. Davis, who was
thoroughly Southern in his sentiments,
can be truly valued by those who were
once his enemies, and that he was act
uated by lofty motives and conceptions
of duty, as were other statesmen and
soldiers of the Confederacy.
“It is possible that this desirable re
sult would never have been reached
had not our glorious women taken the
matter in hand and pushed it to com
pletion. The Confederated Southern
Memorial Association started the work
in 1907, and Mrs. J. Enders Robinson,
of Richmond, and Mrs. W. J. Behan, of
New Orleans, assisted by the IJ. D. C.
and kindred organizations, have the
thanks of all Confederates for the ac
complishment of this work.”
Another order issued by Adjutant-
General Mickle at the headquarters of
the Confederate Veterans Saturday
quotes Gen. Evans as follows;
“The General commanding announces
that the Georgia Division of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy, ever
ready to defend the honor of all who
discharged with fidelity the civil and
military duties upon which they were
honorably engaged in the Confederate
service^ has made the vindication just
ly duyCapt. Henry Wirz, commandant
of the Andersonville prison, by erect
ing at Andersonville. Gu., a handsome
monument to his memory, witli suita
ble i^eriptions, and dedicating it with
impressive ceremonies on the 12th of
May, 1009. The justice due Capt. Wirz
has been tenderly done by this noble
band of Southern women, with full
knowledge of his innocence of the
charges made against him.”
Taft * Tribute to Southern Valor.
Macon Bvenir.n News.
Nothing truer, more generous or
more just could be asked of a Northern
man, leven though President of the
whole'people, than the tribute paid to
Southern valor by Mr. Taft in his
speech at Petersburg, Va., at the un
veiling of a monument to Northern sol
diers. President Taft said;
“Wi) stand here in the center of the
bloodiest and most critical operations
of the last year of the Civil War. only
a few miles distant from that dramatic
scene at Appomattox between Grant
and Lee which marked the great quali
ties of the heart and soul of each, and
which was the real end of the terrific
struggle between the two sections.
“Here in and about Petersburg, the
outworts of Richmond, the home of the
Confederacy, were carried on those be
sieging operations begun late in the
sp^ing of 1864 and continued with the
courage and the tenacity of purpose
chdcactiatic of the Federal commander
for nearly a year, a.pd resisted with
the bravery and strategy and wealth of
expedient of the Confederate leader,
until the forces of the South, worn out
by the constant assaults and the inces
sant hammering, were compelled to
yield to the greater numbers and the
resources of the North.
“In the time which has passed,” the
President continued, “the bitterness of
the internecine struggle has passed
away and we now treasure as a com
mon heritage of the country the brav
ery and the valor of both sides in that
controversy. The army of the Poto
mac, under Grant and Meade, was sec
onded and supported by a generous gov
ernment. It was hardly so with the
Confederate forces. Scantily clothed,
rarely on more than half rations and
for considerable periods reduced to an
allowance of bacon and meal hardly
sufficient to sustain life the long win
ter through, their shivering infantry
manned the ever - extending siege
works against the vigorous assaults of
the Union army until their depleted
ranks were no longer equal to the de
fense, and they gave up a contest which
by any other soldiers but the tried and
seasoned veterans of the army of
Northern Virginia would long before
have been abandoned.”
There have been other Republican
Presidents before him who have praised
the South’s heroism in the great war
in figures of speech and flowery phrase,
but none of them said anything finer
than this, because it is the bedrock, ab
solute truth, that could only be spoken
at the risk of giving offense to the vic
tors, the glory of whose triumph was
outpointed by the Southerners in their
Your nation may have art, poetry
and science, all the refinements of civ
ilized life, ail the comforts and safe
guards that human ingenuity can devise ;
but if it lose this spirit of personal and
local independence, it is doomed, and
deserves its doom. As President Cleve
land has well said, it is not the busi
ness of a government to support its
people, but the duty of the people
to support their government; and
once to lose sight of this vital truth
is as rlangerous as to trifle with
some stealthy narcotic poison. Of the
two opposite perils which have perpet
ually threatened the welfare of politi
cal society—anarchy on the one hand,
loss of self-government on the other -
Jefferson was right in maintaining that
tne latter is really the more to be
dreaded because its beginnings are so
terribly insidious.—John Fisk.

Progressive Dublin is sadly behind
the times in some respects.
We have made material advancement
along many lines, but there is yet
something we have not attended to.
There is here an urgent need for a
Young Men’s Christian Association
building, which we have not yet erect
It is natural for young men to desire
some place where they can have recre
ation, can enjoy innocent games, where
they can meet and mingle freely with
one another, can lounge, rest and read.
The association of young men with
each other is necessary to their exist
ence. When a place is provided where
these young men can meet in an atmos
phere that is wholesome and where all
forms of vice are burred, a great step
forward will he made.
Club life is the bane of the existence
of young men. In clubs they are
taught to gamble, drink and generally
follow the wayr of the world. If some
thing better is not provided, they will
join the first club that is organized, it
matters little what it is.
It has been found in cities that the
Y. M. C. A. is the best auxiliary that
society can have outside the church. It
provides a home tor the boys and young
men, where they are sure of congenial
companions and where the wickedness
of the world cannot enter.
Those who know say that Y. M. C.
A.’s pay a better dividend on the in
vestment than any other building of
like character. The merchant is sure
of better service from his clerks, the
banker feels safer regarding the money
handled by his bookkkeeper, fathers
and mothers spend many less anxious
moments regarding their boys, minis
ters find a greater help in leading
boys to a better life, and society reaps
a big reward in that better citizens are
made of those who are later to take
the place in the world of those who
now manage the affairs of church and
Recently in Jacksonville, Fla., a bus
iness man investigated the good done
by the Y. M. C. A. and donated $5,000
towards the erection of a building in
that city. He continued his investiga
tions and later voluntarily contributed
$5,000 additional. In the modern Y.
M. C. A. buildings there is a reading
room, athletic department, assembly
hall, sleeping quarters, dining room,
and other necessary adjuncts to the
care and comfort of boys and young
That Newnan needs such a building
all must admit. What is needed is for
some one or some set of men to take
the initiative and raise the money with
which to erect and equip the building.
What is every one’s business, is no
one’s business. That is the reason a
start has not been made.

A Bad Practice.
The practice of "paying negroes out
of trouble” is dangerous to society.
Ofttimes, beenuse a negro is a “good
hand ” responsible white men go be
fore the court officers and pay his fine,
after bargaining with the culprit to
work it out on the farm.
If a negro (or white man) commits a
crime and is brought before the bar of
justice and proved to he guilty of what
he is charged with, he should be sent
to the chaingang and not allowed to
go free, and sooner or later commit
some other crime.
The courts too often impose sen
tences of fines when they should be
penitentiary sentences. Sorry, low-
down, worthless negroes and white
men should be placed in confinement
and made to work.
Negroes often boast of the fact that
they cannot be sent to the chaingang,
as “the white folks will pay them
out.” Such a state of affairs should

soon us he is arrested he sends for his
“white boss,” who employs a lawyer
and instructs him to look after the ne

In many instances, when the case is
called in court the negro pleads guilty
of a misdemeanor; the Judge fines him
so much and costs; the white man pays
the fine and the negro goes to work for
him. In nine cases out of ten he com

terms with the horse. It was a com

Yesterday morning Mr. Rogers was
awakened at an early hour by a noise
on the outside of the door, and upon
opening it in came the cat. It would
not eat a mouthful of anything, and
continually pulled at Mr. Rogers'
trousers and kept running toward the
door. Its strange actions caused Mr.
Rogers to go to the barn, headed by
the faithful animal. There he found
that his horse had been loose in the
barn, and, after doing sonsiderable
damage, had fallen and become wedged
down, and nearly exhausted by efforts
to rise. After the horse had been
helped to its feet the cat made one leap
and was on the horse’s back, purring
and acting in every way as if satisfied
with its noble deed.
