! General Reunion, United Confederate Vet
erans, Richmond, Va., June 1-3, 19 5.
Richmond, Va., May 17, 1915
The second week in May finds
plans for the lwenty-fifth annua!
reunion of the United Confederate
Veterans, shednled to be held in
Richmond, Juue 1, 2 and 3, all
but whipped mto perfect shape .
Work of preparing for the baud
ling of the reunion and the vast
crowds that are expected to attend
has been so thoroughly distributed
by the committee system employ
ed that Richmond will be ready
to receive the visitors weeks be
fore the actual opening date.
The 1915 reunion, which comes
fifty years after the fall of Rich
mond and the end of the War Be
tween th9 States, is expected to
be of the utmost significance and
solemnity. To Rich noud in June
will come the greatest gathering
of survivorB of the Coufederata
arms that has perhaps ever been
3een. With them will come
thousands of visitors, relatives,
and curiosity seekers, -who will
find much of interest during the
week to repay them for the trip
Acceptances from may Southern
GjvwrnorB of the invitatioa to at
teud the reunion as the guests of
the Confederates have been re
ceived. The presence of so many
State executives will lend much J
to thfj importance of the occasion.
President ' Wilson's reply to the
invitation of the general com
mittee ii still iu obeyance.- That
he also will attend is the expecta
tion of those in charge of the re
Richmond almost to the last
man, is aminated with the desire
to make the twenty-fifth reunion
the greatest event iu the memory
of the old Confederate a. For one
week the great city will bs turned
over tc the visitors in strict truth
Each person seams determined
that business and private affairs
are to give place to the greater
duty of entertaining the reunion
Great plans have been mide for
tho decoration of the city and of
the Court of Honor, iu paticnlar.
Tie Court of Honor is to be locat
ed at Lee Cirole, in Monument Ave
nue, a situation ideally suited to
such a pnrpese. Brick and mor
tar iu all R chraond is to be cov
ered with flags and bunting dr,

city will i iJeed present a beauti

fhe Austrian, however, assert
that their army still advances.
A homeward bound Z ppelin,
returning from a raid oo Euglaud,
was attacked today as it reached
the Belgian coast. The big gas
bag is reported to have been dam
aged, but the fate of the aircraft
was net learned as it drifted away
in the fog out of sight of the at
tackers. The strain of waiting for defi
nite news of Italy's intentions
with regard so the war has been
relieved somewhat by the stato
ment that nothing further is to be
done until Parliament meets
Thursday. Meantime special
trains are reported to be in reudi
ness to take the German and Aus
trian Ambassadors out of the
cmntry. The German press is
gloomy over the situation.
