For a Monument
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
AMflTKRDAAl. May XI The Herman
emperor recently sketched a design for a
monument which In to be arreted In the
former French town -of ff. Quentin, to
the memory of tne dead tn the present
war. The glory of what led to this la
given In the German paper as follow:
"The Germans, on occupying St. Quen
tin, found a very fine mpntiment to the
French soldier fallen .In 171, by the
tide of which a plain memorial tablet In
honor of the German dead of the, same
year formed a rather undignified con
trast. The military official, therefore,
decided to have another monument
erected, thla time to the dead of 1914-lS.
which, however, la to be common to both
French and German. The local city
councillor offered to bear half the cost.
and a Charlnttenburr artist. Prof. Wand-
achaoldr, wa charged with drawing th
design. The artist sent in three design
and the emperor came down from the
main headquarters specially to view them.
''Ho found them unsatisfactory. Ha
wantad a richer design. II himself In
dicated the leading Idea an open temple
hall In Etruscan form. In the background
the memorial wall with the name of
the dead, and on either side, on th right
and on th left a Oerman and a French
oldler standing a guards of honor. Th
obvlou objection to this plan wa that
th figure of th Oerman soldier may
later on, perhaps, be damaged by fanati
cal chauvinist bereft of the high and
noble ideas of th emperor, who, la a
truly German . spirit.' waa prepared to
honor the brave foe, a much as the vic
tor. Thereupon the emperor deolded
tt tho warrior be equipped In an an
tlqu fashion.' In the course of th next
few day th emperor mad two sketches
ex pressing hi Idea and cent them tt

remark, however, that he need not, so
far aa detail wer conoemed, feel him
self In the least tied down to th model.'
