Indianapolis, Aug. 22. Unexpected opposition to removal of the remains of the Confederate dead from Green-lawn Cemetery has developed among southerners in Indianapolis. The War Department has taken initial steps to disinter the remains of the 1,616 Confederate soldiers buried there in order that these soldier dead may find a final resting place in more attractive surroundings. The opposition which has arisen is voiced not by northerners but by direct and collateral descendants of the hosts that went down to defeat for a lost cause under the leadership of Gen. Robert E. Lee. "Let them rest where they are," is the verdict of these sons of the southland. The Southern Club of Indianapolis is opposed to removal of the remains, according to E. S. Fisher, president of the club. Mr. Fisher, who has lived here seventeen years, formerly resided in Tennessee, where he has prominent family connections. There Alexandria, Ind., Aug. 22.

The Men's Bible Class will have charge of the Sunday evening services in the Christian Church.- A musical program will be given and talks will be made by the Rev. G. W. Winfrey and E. E. Reavis. Mrs. P. J. Reehling, 81, underwent an emergency operation at 1 o'clock this morning at St. John's Hospital at Anderson for appendicitis and gallstones. Her condition is serious and her son. Bert, who is vacationing in the East, has been called. Mrs. Gordon May is improving following an operation performed at St: Marv's Hospital at Rochester, Minn. Mr. May and daughter, Barbara, will return from Rochester the first of next week.

They will attend the twenty-fifth biennial grand chapter meeting of the Sigma Nu fraternity at Bigwin Inn, Lake of Bays, Ontario, from Thursday until the following Sunday. WORTH KNOWING. Visitor "I suppose you know all the ins and outs of this place?" Natice -Well, air, I know all the inns." Exchange. Mr. Fisher says they are agreed that the remains of the Confederates at Greenlawn should not be disturbed. Would Seem Like Sacrilege. "Any attempt to remove the remains of these soldiers would seem to us like sacrilege," said President Fisher. "Furthermore, it would be ineffective and an absolute waste of money. There are no marks of any kind to serve as a guide. It would be possible to dig up some bones, no doubt, but who would know whether they are the bones of Confederates or others, as Greenlawn was a general cemetery and others besides Confederates were buried there. If an attempt is made to exhume the remains of Confederates the result will be that some Confederates bones will be removed to Crown Hill and Others will be left at Greenlawn and that will be wholly ineffective and unsatisfactory. If the idea of the War Department is to show the proper sentiment of respect for the Confederate dead, as it undoubtedly is, that end can best be attained by leaving the Confederate remains undisturbed. Let them rest where they are." The Southern Club of Indianapolis views with apprehension the suggestion of the removal of the Confederate monument from Garfield Park to Crown Hill Cemetery and if the War Department undertakes to carry out that plan the club probably will adopt resolutions of protest and will seek to stop the movement. That monument was first erected at Greenlawn and later removed to Garfield park. Tablets affixed to it set forth the names of all of the 1616 Confederate soldiers who were buried at Greenlawn The club regards Garfield park as a much more desirable place for that monument than Crown Hill, one of the reasons assigned for that belief beine that many more people will see ffkt feu v T'j y-fTT-rr-ij w i :: ...

At a meeting of editors of weekly newspapers in Northwestern Indiana George Ade imparted some interesting advice on circulation building. "If I were the editor of a weekly newspaper," said he, "I would get the name of every resident of my county in the paper twice a year if all I could say about him would be that he took a walk from his house to his barn." Frank Young, an octogenarian farmer of Pulaski County, might be de scribed as a simon pure partisan. When he called at the office of the Pulaski County Democrat at Winamac the other day to see about his sub scription he said to E. C. Gorrell, the busy editor: "When I die I want a Democratic preacher to prea"bb my funeral and I want six good Democrats to serve as pallbearers." "Have you got all that arranged?" asked Mr. Gorrell. Me jmo, im not dead yet, was the reply. While Mr. Young is still very active, as befits his last name, he is looking forward to a Democratic send-off into the next world. A Wells County farmer Is refusing to get his hair cut because wheat Is thirty-five cents a bushel and a hair cut in Bluffton costs forty cents. He cannot reconcile -himself to the thought of paying more than the pro ceeds of a bushel of wheat to have his hair trimmed and he has solemnly resolved that he will let his hair grow until the price of wheat goes up or the price of hair-cuts comes down. Abram Simmons, of Bluffton, one of the Nesters of the Indiana bar, has a library that is noted for its many old and rare volumes. He has all of the statutes ever enacted by the Congress of the United States and likewise all of the statutes ever enacted by the Indiana legislature. What is more rare and valuable in his collection is the complete Journal of the Continental Congress, in which appears the notation that on a certain day in July, 1776, a Declaration of Independence was adopted just a little incident that has caused a good deal of talk ever since. While Mr. Simmons appears to have about everything in his library along historical and antiquarian lines one of his guests the other day sought to drive him to cover by remarking: "My grandfather was a member of the Indiana constitutional convention that framed the present constitution of Indiana and I own a copy of the debates of that convention, which is so rare that I do not know anybody else who has a copy." Mr. Simmons reached for a shelf high above the visitor's head and pulled down a book. "Here is a copy," he said. Tom Emmons, president of the Izaak WaUon League of Rochester, has just received a heavy compliment from officials of the United States Bureau of Fisheries on account of the great number of dog fish he has caught this season at Lake Mani-tou. An official of the bureau happened to be at Lake Manitou recently when Mr. Emmons hauled away a wagon load of dog fish he had caught. This made him a hero in the eyes of real sportsmen. All of those who know Mr. Emmons say he is death on dog-fish. Pulaski County has paid a beautiful tribute to its veterans of the World War, some 500 in number, by displaying their pictures in glass covered cases on the interior wall of the courthouse at Winamac. In this mural collection are the pictures of twenty-nine Pulaski County soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice. The display is as unusual as it is appropriate. rnnum, Come Prepared to Make Final Decisions! SUMMERTIME FURNITURE Glider, covered in good serviceable fabric, to go at a bargain price.
