ROBERT E. LEE.
(1'xtr.tft from the address of Dr. E.
A. Alderman president of the Univer-
sity of Virginia at the banquet to
President Tnft at Petersburg Va.
May 19 1903.)
Sympathetic and curious friends
from other lands and states some-
times wonder why Virginia and the
south give to General Lee a sort of
Inte'tisity of lovp that they do not give
even to Washington. The I'ason Is
simple to those who knew Virginia
tod I.ee Washington stands high
(b an spotless like the shaft that
eennmeniorates his fame in the na-
tional capital at the gateway of our
republican history symbolizing the
majesty of the era of origins and guc-

romantic history of the whole state.
Its triumphs. 1 ts defeats. Its joys its
sufferings its rebirths. Its pride its
patience center In him. In that reg-
nant figure of qub-t strength and In-
vincible rectitude and utter self-surrender
may be discovered the com-
plete drama of a pieat stock. As he
stood at Arlington on that fateful day
in 1SSI. smiting his bands In p.gony
over a decision he needs must make
his ftgony was th9 people's agony; as
he rode In triumph by virtue of genius
and valor through the storm of vic-
torious battle his glory was their
glory; as be stood forth amid vicissi-
tudes ever unshaken of disaster or
unspoiled by success his fortitude
was their fortitude; as the result of
the great appeal waa seen to rest at
last upon bis broad shoulders and bis
operation of every republican member
ot Congress ia this effort; that If any
republicans oppose such of his recom-
mendations as are party measures
that ! such as are promised la the
piatform he will not strengthen sucB
members by giving them the accug-
tome d shares of the patronage. !
Now the Question arises is this
presidential policy retroactive? Is It
aimed at the insurgents for their
course in the tariff session or ia it
designed to procure their support for
the future program? ;

other things but never gives it to us
or tries. We say the democrats will
no: help us but fights us all the time.
Well why not look at it in a sen-
sible way. We fought the democratic
pariy all the time. If a man does all
he can to injure me do you think I
shall go out of my way to favor him?
You know I will not neither will any
other man. Now the democratic party
la Juxt like that. We colored people
have fought it al! our lives and we
are not in position to ask favors of It.
That is our situation we cannot ask
favors of the democratic party and
the republican will not grant a favor
when It can.
What Is the colored voter going to
do about it? We make a business of
fighting the only party that Is able to
help us and give our aid to the party
that fills us up with promises but
gives us nothing more substantial

Hence by this test patronage ac-
cording to the President's policy in
using it should be denied to the re-
actionaries not to be retroactive this
patronage pe nalty.
Well then what ere the probabili-
ties as to the l.-glslatlon already re-
comruended by the President with re- oln(r jt
ference to tne railroads and trusts
and that Indicated by the President as
to the the conservation of the natural
resource's? So far as Mr. Taft has de-
fined his purposes those purposes will
ba supported by the progressive re-
publicans. If there Is opposition it
will come from the reactionaries from
tie same source that opposition to
honest tariff revision came from. Sure-
help the democratic party and see
if they will not help us. For myself.

is not natural for men to
think according to color. When we
all vote the republican ticket Just be-
cause we are all of one color we
show that we lack the thing that

power to think for oneself. We will
never be worthy of recognition and

Kansas City Ktock Yards Jan !
Receipts' of quarantine cattle last
we k showed the same lack of quality
and finish that has characterized sup-
ply In that division for several weeks
although there was a slight sign of Im-
provement last of the week. Prices
were lower first of the week but the
market closed the week with all of
the loss regained. The run Monday
was 23 cars containing a better as-
sortment than usual market steady
to 10 lower. Among receipts today
was steers at 14 C5 to fu.To. which
Included several lots at 13.20 and 11.20
weighing fcCO to 930 lbs. The top
steers weighed 1130 Jbs. Fed cows
are worth up to 14. 30 cancers at 12.73
to 13.40 bulls J3.40 to 11.30 choice
veals 17.00 to $$.00 several strings
of Texas calves here today weighing
230 to 230 lbs at $4.33 to $3 00. The
imn of cattle in the native division was
i small last week after Tuesday but
there is a fair run today mainly rae-
idiurn grade short fed stuff. There is
a strong demand among consumers
jfor cheap meat and the lower grades
I of fed stock find a broad ou'let. The
fact that average quality of fed
'steers Is far below par is taken to
'indicate a shortage of cattle later in
the winter with a corresponding
strength and the prediction is made
'that the feeder who wins this year
J will be the one that sticks at bis
j feeding operations the same as this
j Individual has won out each of the
lat several years.
Hog sellers took the buyers into
;camp early last week and dictated
terms each day thereafter with the
exception of a small decline at the end
of the week net advance for the week
13 to 23 cents. The run is 9000 here

timate ar.d the market Is strong to 5

$7.&0. Although receipts are running
only a little more than half the sup-
ply at this t'un- a year ago at all the
markets crippled railroad service is
partly responsible and the altitude of
the market Is not considered safe. A
slight Influence would bring a break
in prices and country buyers are be-
ing told that caution is necessary la
Sheep and lambs sold lower middle
of last week but closed with a good
advance and at the highest priees of
