vacancies in their ranks when the work

much below the actual cost of materials,
and gives you a whole suit for about
what you’d have to pay in early season

you take into consideration, how much

MOM >iE\T TO THE CAT A\V B AES.
South Carolina It- member* Her
Columbia, S. C-. July 31—In the center
of a triangle formed by monuments to
the loyal slaves of the South, the women
of the Confederacy, and the Confederate
soldier, there was dedicated at Fort Mill.
York county, tc-day a monument to ihe
Catawba Indians who espoused the cause
of the South in 1861 and fought gallant
ly to the close of the war. The Catawbas
sent a company of tcouts Into the army,
some of them doing service under Hamp
ton, for which th y were commended,
and many being killed.
The monument to the Indians i3 a
graceful shaft of fine granite supporting
the figure of a Catawba chief in war
tear. Appropriate set ms and ir.scrij
tijna appear on the sid s of the pedestal.
It was erected by Col S. E. White, who
was also chiefly instrumental in having
elected the other monuments in the Fort
Mill : ark. At the time it was unveiled
• h monument to the women of the Con
federacy was the only one In existence,
while those to the faithful slaves and the
fri ndly Indians are the* only ones in ihe
world. Col. White was a large slave
ho.c. r and one of the Indian scoits was
attached to his com. any during the war.
The services at Fori Mill to-day were
brief. Half the tribe on the reservation,
ten miles distant, w'ere in attendance.
1 ut the band was small as there are but
seventy-six left and eight or ten of these,
only, are full-blooded. The address of the
day was delivered by Chief Ben Harris,
one of the few surviving warriors and in
all probability the last chief of his tribe.
H s lather was killed in battle during
the Civil War.
According to the writings and traditions
of ihe Catawbas, they moved in a great
body with thousands of warriors to the
South in 1566, invaded the land of the
Cherokees, and after scattering tights and
skirmishes came to a great battle on the
banks of the Catawba river, where Fort
Mill now' stands. There the Catawbas hod
a thousand warriors killed, but the losses
of the Cherokees were much greater, and
i hat nation was conquered and driven
from their hunting grounds. The famous
battlefield is still ixdnted out and the re
mains of fortifications erected by the In
dians can yet be seen.
The Catawbas welcomed the whites
when they came, and for hundreds of
years have maintained the same friendly
reunions with them. In 1825 the tribe was
given a reservation of 10.000 acres of land
in York county and the state annually
gives SBOO to the tribe and $250 for a sc'hool
for the Indian children. The widows of
the men killed in the Civil War are pen
sioned by the state.
Until within the last few years the chief
of this tribe made a formal visit to the
Governor at a stated time of the year, de
clared his friendship and presented some
token—the gift was game as long as there
was any to be procured about the reserva
