General Miles’ portrait did not
ornament the Georgia capitol along
with tbe recent war beroei at the
peace jubilee at Atlanta. Inquiry
develops tbe fy^ tbat a state senator
had openly declared that if General
Miles’ picture was bang up in tbe
capitol be wonld tear it down, say-
ing that “no man who put Jeff
Davis in irons should be so honored
in the capitol of Georgia.” Good
for that senator. It was by General
Miles’ order that President Davit
was put in irons when a Federal
prisoner in Fortress Monroe, and
for no other purpose than to humil-
iate tbe distinguished statesman and
patriot. It was a cowardly act, that
tbe Southern people will never for-
get and never forgive.
