The Canton Monument.
The National Memorinl As iciation,
organized for tho jurposes (f raising
funds and crectinp a worthy monu
ment to William McKinley over his
grave at Canton, has completed tho
most onerous portion of its task tho
raising of funds. Tho treasurer is
Governor-elect Myron T. Hernck, of
Ohio, and he reports that $150,000
are now on hand. Of this, $ 1000,000
is to be devoted to the erection of
the memorial, and the remaining $50,
000 will be invested, the income to
be devoted to the maintenance and
care of the structure, and the grounds
The necessary funds being sub
scribed and paid in, tho next step is
to decide on an appropriate design
for the memorial. The competition
was opened to all American artists,
and a large nurd er of designs have
been submitted. It is said, however,
that the most of these, if not all, will
be dropped from consideration; and
the time for receiving designs has
been extended to January 1 next. It
has also been decided to ask the lead
ing members of the American
Institute of Architects for opin
ions and advice in the choice
among the designs submitted. It is
to be hoped that the design accepted
will be one that will commend itself
not only to the present generation of
Americans, but to the future ones.
There is but little in American mauso
leum architecture so far to be com
mended. Wo need a new departure.

broucht her in opposition to the
Catholic church and she has recently
had a sharp controversy with a Cath
olic priest. The occasion of the dif
ference is that Miss Gould served the
children meat on Friday. This is
against the discipline of the Catholic
church which insists, that flesh shall
be obstained from on that day because
on that day Christ was crucified. The
school is open to children of any or
no denomination, but of course, if no
concession be made to the prejudices
of the Catholics, they will not permit
their children to enter the school.
The situation raises the query: Which
will be best for the poor child, to
learn to sew and eat meat on Friday,
or forego this advantage and minis
ter to its soul by obstaining from
meat? It is probable that many
children, if withdrawn from the
school, would be unable to get meat
any other day of the week as well
Religious prejudice certainly works
some peculiar and annoying embar
rassments for a heart filled with the
love of doing practical good. Miss
Gould, in her reply to the Catholic
priest, says she will not only continue
to serve meat to the children on Fri
day, but that she will begin the prac
tice of reading portions of tho Prot
estant Bible to them before teaching
them to hem shirts.

OFFICE IN MARKS BLOCK,
All Californian records for verdicts
involving loss of human life were
broken by the award made in the
United States District Court at Los
Angeles last week. Mrs. Cora Ver
non was given judgment for $27,500
against the Southern Pacific Railway
Company as compensation for the loss
of her husband, who was killed in a
wreck at Byron, on December 20,
1902. Attorneys say tho highest
award ever made heretofore for
human life in California was $20,000,
and they believe the verdict the
largest ever awarded outside of New
York. Vernon was scalded and crush

placed in the cotton plots by some
interested person, perhaps for specu
lative purposes. The Agricultural
Department expresses tho opinnn
that the weevil will in time spread
over all the cotton fields of the South,
unless something is found to prevent
it, and the annual damage, based on
that which has already taken place
in Texas, will amount to $250,00),-
000, or one-half in value of the cot
ton crop. This is a very serious mat
ter for tho nation, and tho world in
