a constant moral menace to the soldiers.

LANDS GRANTEDTO LAFAYETTE
CommUaloner Hermann Hevlevm the
ActH of ConBre n and Loca
tion ot the Landi.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 12. Apropos ot th
Lafayette monument movement nnd discus
sion , the Interior department Is receiving
numerous communications asking Informa
tion about lands , moneys , etc. , given Lafay
ette in testimonial ot his service m the
revolution. Commissioner Hermann of the
general land office , discussing the queries
coming In from newspaper men , historians
i and others as to the location of the landd
voted Lafayette , made the following state
ment today , reviewing all the government
land transactions with Lafayette : "Con
gress , on March 3 , 1S03 , authorized the sec
retary of war to Issue land warrants to
Major General Lafayette for 11,520 acres
( one-half ot a township ) , and on March 27 ,
1E04 , General Lafayette was authorized and
empowered to locate the warrants In the
territory of Orleans , now the state ot Loulsl-
ana. The locations were subsequently
made on the west ) bank of the Mississippi
river , In the parish of Polnte Coupee. Pat
ents thereon were Issued in January and
April , 1810 , and March , 1813.
"In 1824 congress , by a unanimous vote.
requested President Monroe to Invlto Gen
eral Lafayette to visit this country. The
Invitation was accepted and while here con
gress granted him $200,000 in cash and a
township of land , to be located under tbe
authority of the president on any of the
1 unappropriated lands ot the United States.
This township was in Leon county , In what
| was then known es West Florida , being
j township 1 , north of range 1 east , contain-
I Ing 23,028.50 acres and patented July 4 , 1&.25 ,
the forty-ninth anniversary of the dcclara-
j tlon of Independence. This patent was rte-
llvercd to General Lafayette in person by
the then coinmlRRioner of the general land
! office , Mr. George Graham. Tbe city of
Tallahassee Is located on a part of this town
ship. Commissioner Hermann also called
attention to the fact not generally known
that there Is on file In rho general land
oifice an original deed executed jointly by
General Lafayette and another and ac
knowledged before United State Consul Isaac
Cox Barnet at Paris , October 2 , 1823 , trans
ferring a portion of the land .embraced In
the first ) grant. The signature of the gen
eral to this patent is simply "Lafayette , "
written as one word and with a small "f , "
which would seem to settle the discussion
on the question as to whether tlhe name
should bo written as two words and with n
capital "F" or not

department. He brought with him a record
of the proceedings , findings and sentence
ot the court-martial. The papers will now
be carefully reviewed by Judge Advocate
Lemly with a view to ascertaining their
regularity in all points and will then bo
parked on to the secretary of the navy for
action. If the sentence Involves dismissal
the case must go to the president for bla
action , sothat In view ot the common un
derstanding of the result of the court-mar
tial no final action can be expected Until
the president returns from the west. '

her any good ; In fact she kept getting worse.
I used to wrap her liam'.s tip , and irhcn I

for I could not hold her. She would kick and
