THE LEE AONTJIKM".
History ef the Movement to Se
cure its Erec!ion.
The first association to raise
money tor the Lee monument was
organized on November 3, 1870,

dent, and S. Basse tt
secretary and treasurer,

neighborhood with its sombre
shades. But theie was uhick
jand euergy in the people
who had been spared that they
might see how heavy was band of
afHiction that had been laid upon
them, and there was love for the
great and good man who had com
manded the armies of the Con
federacy, and who had so heroically
shared the common fate of his
people as to challenge the admira
tion oi his enemies.
Poor as the South was, money
was sent from all parts of the
whilom Confederate States (and
none from abroad) until the Lee-
Monument Association had at its
command the sum of nearly $20,000.
The Board of Directors, composed
of the Governor, the Auditor and
Treasurer of the State, were au
thorized to invest the money, which
they did in Yirgina State bonds
and awaked developments.
About this time the patriotic
ladies organized the Lee Monument
Association ana witn characteristic
energy set to wort to raise iunds.
They met with great success and
soou placed 20,000 in the hands of:
that great philanthropist, W. W. After the surrender at Appomat
Corcoran, for investment, and he tox Lee returned to this house aud
made such good use of it that when occupied it until called to LexiDg

the meantime, owing to a decline ! the subseouent ve'ars the West,
in State bonds, the State Associa
tion found they only had 9,000.
Although the ladies had a majority
of the stock when the two associa-
tions united they demanded only ;
equal representation on the Exec
utive Board. They delegated their
representative force to Colonel
Archer Anderson, and at all subse
quent meetings he represented the
ladies. It was mainly due to the
efforts of ex-Governor Lee that the
two associations were united as
one, and that the work has

stands was waving with yellow

The mansion, No. 707 East
Franklin street, between Seventh
and Eighth, a red buck front, with
basement and three stories above ;
it, was built forty jears ago by Mr. 1
Notman Stewart and was occupied i
as his residence until 1.31, and at
his death was devised to Mr. John j
Stewart, of Brook Hill, to whose j
estate it now belongs. Early in
the war it was occupied by Gen.
Custis Lee, then a member of the
President's staff, and a number of
other officers. From the carriage ;
block in front of the house, in June,
1803, after the wounding of Gener
al Johnston at Seven Pines, Gener
al R. E. Lee mounted his horse aud
rode away to take command of the
Army of Northern Virginia. Soon
after that it became his house; a

"Well," says he, "I'll make a

He had some materials and at
it he went. The way he drawed
off that rabbit and slashed on
the paint was jest boy's piay.
He'd pick up a little paint here
and a little there off the board
he held on his thumb, and
almost before I knowed it he
had a likeness of that dead

so, for I knowed he was good in

wasn't worth so much she might
cook it for breakfast.
Well we went to bed, and
rabbits and dollars danced in my
head all night. The first thing
in the morning I sat it up and
looked at it, and couldn't hardly
get off to work.; It was a mighty
hot day. When I came home at
night there wTas an awful smell

Roper, N. C, May 26. A bold at
tempt at assassination was committed
here Saturday night, about ten o'clock.
Some unknown person fired a load of
buckshot at a party of colored people
standing in front of a Bhop, seriously
wounding four men and one woman.
The shooting was done at short range
and would have been death to r verni
if the gun had not" been ai-i.e.l rits.es
The woman iu this ci?e is a pretty
mulatto about seventeen years old, and
is the wife of Lloyd Arnold, who is now
serving a term of ten years for killing
his .wife that he might marry this wo
man, which be did at earliest conve

turn, it is thought, is guilty if the
sho ting. He was arrested Sor.day
