One of the good suggestions made in connection with the Indiana centennial centennial this year is that of George of Columbus, which would provide for a popular fund, to be raised in Bartholomew Bartholomew county, to pay for a statue of -Gen. Joseph Bartholomew, for whom Bartholomew county was named. Pence would have the people people of Bartholomew county place the Bartholomew memorial statue in the court house square. It is understood an effort will be made to carry out Pence suggestion. Further, it is urged that a marker he set to point out trail over which Bartholomew and hie soldiers, in 'the pioneer days, pursued a marauding band of Delaware Indians following murderous depredations by the redskins. Pence has for many years had in mind the memorial statue or monument in honor of General General Bartholomew. It seems that this year, with the centennial in prospect, the people are more willing than formerly formerly to give heed to the monument plan. If the people of Bartholomew county are ready to provide for the monument in addition to the local cen- ennial celebration" the Bartholomew memorial will fit in splendidly with he general idea of commemoration ind historical education for posterity. Many Indiana counties have in their early development characters and events such as those brought to mind be well for the people to consider enduring markers may be erected to draw the attention of coming generations, generations, to the greatness and. achievements achievements of early days.--Indiana Times. the
