ARCH OR MONUMENT. The Woman's Confederate At-aod-. ation Not Yet Agreed Upon '. - the Memorial. Another Entertainment Te Be Clren For tke Benefit ef the : Faad. Almost every Southern city but Louisville has a Confederate monument. The mernbeis of the Women's Confederate Monument Association of Kentucky are now hopeful that soon it can be said that Louisville has one of the handsomest monuments to tlie Confederate dead in existence. Some time ago the charter of the association was sent to Mrs. Susan 1. Hepburn by Gov. Buckner. l"reviously to that it had been decided that when as much as fS.OoO had been secured the coroer-str.ne would be laid. The association now has about this amount in the treasury, the money being dercsited with the Louisville Trust Company, and some time this summer the stone will lie placed ia position. Three locations had been suggested to the association : the intersection of Third and Broadway, in-' terseclicn it tlie boulevard and Third, snd a circle of ground beyond tha railroad crf.ssing en the boulevard. A vote v.'ns taken, which resulted five to one in favor if the Intersection of Third street and the boulevard as tlie site for the !roiosed ruemoriaL As was stated in tlra Courier-Journal yesterday, the asnocia-tion has leen granted pernibin by the Park lioniniiseierHTa tv erect their monument at the chojsrn site. - Whether the memorial win be a monument or an arch t not just yet settled. An arch will be very expensive, but the sentiment i greatly in favor of.lt. The monument would be cheaper, but it would not look so well. An imposing white marble arch would show up magnificently and Mayor Jacob suggested to Mr. Hepburn that it be erected there. When the memorial shall be built it will be dedicated to the Unknown Confederate Dead." - Tho location is by no means yet settled, and Cave Hill may get tlie monument, but if the subscriptions come in as they should Mrs. lieph'ira thinks that a beautiful memorial can be erected. The members of the Association are working hard to increase the funds in their possession, and will soon give another entertainment. They liave secured the famous Harvard Quartette for this, and toe organization will appear at Liedcrkrans Hall on the evening of January 1. Tlie quartette will present an entertaining programme, and the muai will be of the highest class. A full house should greet them, as the concert ia not only to be given for the benefit of a most worthy cause, bnt will in Itself be a very fine entertainment. The quartette appeared here" last year and drew a splendid house. A section In the hall w-ll be reserved for the Harvard alumni, who are numerous in this city.
