.Market Quiet. The local retail
and wholesale market was a little
quiet yesterday, only two changes
. being noted. One was a drop in j
strawberries, from 15 cents a box to
12 cents per box. The wholesale
price of rolled barley dropped 50
cents on the ton, which, while not
very much, shows a tendency that
will not bo looked upon with any ill
feeling by those who feed a great
deal.
Painting Days. The electric light
company is improving the appear
ance of some of Marshfleld's streets
as well as preserving Its property
by painting the poles carrying its
wires. The poles are being painted
white from the top to within A few
feet of the ground.

location for the new hotel, and or-
unveiling of the monument was the
fruition of eighteen years of patient
and loving effort, and every man who
woYe the southern uniform had in his
heart a desire to be present. A de
votion which knows no equal in
American history is responsible for
its bulldlng.v It was a work the
South had to do without help. There
was no United Nation to bear the ex
pense. Love and Sacrifice were the
masons who piled the stones and
spread the mortar that cemented
them into one enduring memorial.
Beautiful sentiment was heard on
every side and the thanks of the en-1

Messrs. Bennett & O'Connel, of
Marshfleld, have returned to renew
Daughters of the Confederacy, whose
work it was that made the Jefferson
Davis Monument Association a suc

tion from the writings of Jefferson
Davis himself, which was given in
the principal speech of General
Clement A. Evans, of Atlanta, Ga.,
evoked the most applause. The
sentiment occurred in the dedication
of the "Rise and Fall of theConfed

All of the work of the reunion had
been done and the fifth and last day
was devoted wholly to the payment
of a tribute to the memory of Jeffer
son Davis. The 'streets were bril
liantly decorated. There .was
scarceely a house or business build
ing In the city that was not profuse
ly decorated with confederate colors
and bunting, and on account of the
injury of much of the decorating by
severe rains, additional bunting was
put up by the city today. This was
especially true of Franklin street
and Monument avenue, the lino of
march for the unveiling of tho Davis
monument. JThe grand parado to
the unveiling started at 11:30 a. m.
The military feature was similar to
the parade on the first day of the re
union when the statue of Major Gen
eral G. E. B. Stuart was unveiled, but
there were far more veterans In gray
In line. They appeared to have been
saving their strength for this event
and although tho walking was bad

were formed In open rank within one
mile of tho statue, and the modern
military organization marched
through in review, to bo followed by
the veterans, the carriage containing
the auxiliary orders. This entailed
no long march for the veterans and
avoided all counter marching In tho
parado formation. Tho grand, pro
cession was under command of Gen
eral Smith Boiling, of Portersburg,
Va., as chief marshal.
Along tho lino of march a dense
crowd lined tho streets, tho windows
were filled and many of tho house
tops were covered with cheering and
singing groups. Flags were waved
in beating timo to stirring Confeder
ate airs. In the great concourse of
veterans' organizations which pro
ceeded in perfect order was a con
stant succession of bands and fife
and drum corps. Following tho vet
eran section of the parade camo the
carriage division, carrying many of
the women to whom the Confederate
soldiers owe nearly every memorial
that has been erected in honor of the
heroes of tho Confederacy. The
Cross j military saluted, the crowds cheerod
' and tho bands played "Dixie" and
"Maryland." The procession con
tinued out the avenue to the Davis
monument where a dense crowd had
assembled. The ceremonies were
opened with prayer by tin Rev. Dr.
J. William Jones, of Richmond,
Chaplain General. The first ad
dress was by Governor Claude A.
Swanson, of Virginia, and he was fol
lowed by Mayor Carlton McCarthy,
of Richmond, who Introduced Gen
eral Evans as orator of the day. At
the conclusion of this address the
m ayropso.sez ofad aoln noln aoln 1
mayor spoke briefly, accepting on be
half of Richmond tho trust Imposed
on It by the South. Mrs. J. A.
Hayes, of Colorado Springs, Colo.,
daughter of Mr. Davis, pulled the
cord that held the canvass shroud
that covered the statue. Her two
sons, the grandsons of the Confeder
ate President, caught tjje two cords
used to complete the unveiling.
Mrs. Norman V. Randolph, of
Richmond, chairman of the Central
Committee , Jefferson Davis Monu
ment Association, made an address of
welcome, to which a response was
made by Mrs. William J. Behan, of
Mississippi, president of the Confed
eiato Southern Memorial Association.
Mrs. Geo. S. Holmes, of South
Carolina, chairman of the Central
Committee, Jefferson Davis Monu-,
ment Association, made a report of
tho work done, and Representative
John Sharp Williams, of Mississippi,
read a response that had been pre
pared by Mrs. Lizzie Georgo Hender
son, president general of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy. The
monument of Jefferson Davis Is the
crowning feature of Richmond's
sreat monument avenue. It is the
combined work of E. V. Valentine
and William C. Noland, of Rich
mond. The memorial consists of a
semi-circular collonade terminating
at each end in a square pier with a
large column or shaft rising from the
Inclosed space. The semi-circle Is
about fifty feet across with a depth of
thirty feet and stands G7 feet in total
height. The momument typified the
vindication of M. Davis and the
cause of the Confederacy. The lead
ing Inscription being "deo vindlce"
(God will vindicate).
The colonade, composed of 13
doric "columns besides the two end
pieces, rises about eighteen feet
above the walk way and its frieze is
decorated with bronze seals of the
eleven states that seceded and the
three others that sent representatives
and troops. In the center of tho
space inclosed by the colonade stands
a large doric column over five feet In
diameter. The column forms a
background for the bronze figure of
Mr. Davis, and also carries on its top
an allegorical bronze figure whose
right hand pilnts to heaven and
whose title "vlndicaterix" represents
the whole spirit of the movement.
The large column bears the seal of
the Confederacy in bronze and has
the inscription, "Jefferson Davis,
president of tho Confederate States
of America, 18G1-18G5."
The bronze figure of Mr. Davis
stands on a great block of granite in
the center of tho column and about
twelve feet above the road way. ( The
President Is represented In a stand
ing posture as though addressing an
andlence,-wlth his right hand resting
on an open book.
Around the molding is traced a
noteworthy extract from Mr. Davis
farewell speech when he resigned
from the United States Senate on the
secession of Mississippi:
"Not in hostility to others, not to
conquer any section of tho country,
not even for our own pecuniary bene
fit: But for the high and solemn
motive of defending and protecting
tho rights wo Inherited, and which it
is our duty to transmit unshorn to
our children."
On tho points of tho colonade
stand bronzo tablets, one to the army
of the Confederacy and one is in
scribed "From Sumpter to Appomat
tox during four years of unflinching
struggle against overwhelming odds."
The navy tablet Is inscribed: "Giving
new examples of heroism,. teaching
new; methods of warfare, and carried
the flag of tho South to tho most dis
tant seas."
