THE SOLDIERS MONUMENT
The bodies of twenty-two volunteers were brought back to their home state and all but nine were claimed by friends and taken to their respective homes, but these nine friendless bodies became the honored dead of the state of Washington. They were brought to the Capital City, where the Masonic fraternity, of Olympia, donated a handsome tract of land for their interment. It is considered desirable that an addition to the land donated be purchased by the state in order that the plot can be beautified and reserved especially to the dead of the state's soldiery, and there it is proposed to erect the monument.
