Resolution? were passed at a meeting of Iro
quois Post, 89. Iroquois, Dec. 9, requesting its
Senators and Representatives in Congress to do
all iu their power to have all claims now pend
ing before the Commissioner of Pensions acted
on before December 31, 1894.
W. H. Robinson, Commander, Ord Post, 3. San
Antonio: As many comrades of the G.A.R.
feel desirous that Comrade R 21. 2Iooro, Past
Commander of E. 0. G Ord Post, No. 3, should
be our Department Commander for the ensuing
year, I desire to give, briefly, his war history.
Comrade 2Iooro raised a regiment (the 117th
III.) ; was elected and commissioned its Colonel,
and served to tho close of tho war in command
of the same. He refused to bo recommended
for a Brigadier-Generalship, preferring to re
main witii his old regiment. This command
is referred to by Gen. Grant in his final report
of the war, as one that never failed to execute
to his entire satisfaction. This command saved
Gen. Banks up Red River; drove Hood back
from his line around Nashville, Dec. 15. 1801.
He has flattering testimonials for some battles
in which he was engaged. At Ploa&ant Hill, La.,
his command defeated Kirby Smith and Dick
Taylor. At Tupelo, Mies., where Smith's com
mand defeated S. D. Lee and Forrest, after they
routed Gen. Sturgis. At Guntown R. 21. 21oore
relerred to him as winning honors only seconJ
to Gchb. Smith and Mower.
The Council of Administration have selected
Thusday, Feb. 15, 1891. at 12 o'clock in., as tho
time for the convening of the, 12th annual
Eiicannmeiit of this Department, at G.A.R.
Hall, Salt Lake City.
On last 21emorial Day the two Posts mus
tered over 100 comrades in tho ranks, with
several, who wero crippled or wero too feeble
to march, in carriages. That noble body of
women, the W.R.C., mustered nearly 100 mem
bers. The cadet from tho 2Iilitary Academy,
the uniform ranks of tho K. of P.. the A. 0. U.
W and other hocietics, took a prominent part
in tho ceremonies of tho day. Over 1,000 per
sons marched iu the procession. This year the
Posts will do still better.
The entertainraont given at the Installation
of officers by John A. Logau Post recently, at
Ogdcn, was the most notable event of tho
week. Tho rooms were crowded tho entire
evening, about 300 people being present. A
fine program had been arranged, which wan
splendidly rendered, aud heartily applauded
all through. In tho diniug-room two long
tables wero laid, and hero tho visitors wero
regaled with a regular army supper of pork
and beans, black coffee aud hardtack, rnd it
kept tho young ladies aud the old " vets" who
waited on tables rustling to supply tho wants
of the dinors. At tho west end of tho diniug
room there was a ranged a picturesque scene;
a genuine pup-tent, with two bunks made of
blankets and piuo boughs inside, while outside
wero tho stacked arms and camp utensils, and
the whole Bet down in a little grove of pine
trees. The address of welcome was delivered
by Gen. R. II. G. 2Iinty. After the regular
program and supper tho guests repaired to the
lodge-room, and spent tho rest of tho night
and part of tho morniug in card games and
social couveree. Hero, midst tho Rocky

Tho Division Commander, Albert C. Blais
dell, Boston, in Order 1 makes some remarks
which are particularly fitting at this time,
when so many of tho brothers aro out of work,
and tho tendency is for them to drop their mem
bership in Camps on account of the exponso.
The Commander says: Captaius of Gimps for
tho currentyoarare nowoutering upon tho dis
charge of now duties, aud are reminded to ever
keep boforo thom the obligation assumed at
their installation and to act in accordance
therewith. A personal examination of the
books of the Camp should bo mado, and every
effort tried to regain tho momhers lost by sus
pension. See to it that no brother loses his in
terest, and that suspensions aro made only when
it becomes absolutely necessary and all cither
means Jail. Wo do not mean by this tlut mem
bers should bo carried who aro in arrears, but
that personal effort, personal solicitation, and a
knowledge of tho circumstauccs should bo
known before suspension takes place.

Defenders' Day, Feb. 12, shonld not pass un

3 one of celebration. "Union Defenders'
Day" should bo made particularly appropriate
by us, for when tho great war Prosidentcalled
for volunteers, Pennsylvania was tho fir.u State
to have its soldiers iu Washington in defeusoof
the Capital. As our fathers wero first iu tho

petuating the memory not only of the martyred
head of this Nation, hut tho deeds and history
of the brave defenders of the Union. All Camps
aro urged to fitly celebrate tho occasion with

aud conditions. An open Campfire, patriotic

planned. He has assured a correspondent that
it was not his intention to givo any informa
tion about the formidable weapon to the public,
as his secret is reserved for tho Government!
Ho did not, however, dony that some of what
had already leaked out as to tho naturo and
capabilities of tho weapon was true.
According to theso statements, 21. Turpin
goes so far as to say that tho figures already
given as to four discharges in a quarter of an
hour, each belching 25,000 projectiles, only
represents a minimum. Ho believes that his
gun could, in fact, be brought to fetich a pitch
of perfection as to enable thoso using it to
sweep several army corps ofl' a field of battle
as by a gust of wind.
As to tho principle on which tho torriblo
weapon works, M. Turpin says it has an elec
tric basis, and is of tho utmost simplicity.
His Bccret, as ho emphatically reiterates when
spoken to about tho matter, will only be di
vulged to his own Government, and under
cortain conditions. These are, that a commit
tee of officers should bo appointed to try tho
experiments with him on a secluded headland
on tho Finisterre coast, with a cordon of troops
round in order to keop back tho inquisitive.
As to taking out a patent, ho moans to do
nothing of tho sort, as his secret might thus
bo communicated to a Gorman, Englishman,
Italian, or, as the inventor expresses it, an
Armstrong quclconqtio. His melinite is now
usod in overy country from Germany to Japan,
and ho docs not want his gun to become iu tho
same way tho common property of natious.

Eloinontary Training in American Citizen
ship, ami Information How tho Itelief
Corps May IJcgln.
In numerous places, as has heretofore baon
noted, tho Woman's Relief Corps hn3 enlisted
in tho great work of Caching patriotism in
our public schools. '
Tho hoisting of flags over Bchool buildings,
tho placing of flags within tho school-rooms,
and tho effort to iutroduce systematic patriotic
instruction into the daily school routine, aro
all n part of tho present movement.
How shall wo secure elcmontary instruction?
is the question reaching us. Aud another is,
What shall we do if our school authorities aro
indifferent to our appeals?
To the first question wo would say, Address
Comrado Wallace Foator, Indianapolis, Ind.,
for information. And, should you want print
ed mattor bearing upon elementary training
iu American citizenship, address Col. Georgo
T. Balch, 33 East Twenty-second street, Now
Col. Balch has prepared "A Patriotic Primer
for tho Little Citizen"; "Tho Salutation of
tho Flag and tho Use of tho Ballot Coucretoly
Taught"; "Tho Declaration of Independence,
July 4, 1776," with history aud chart, which
should bo in every school-room, as well as
every G.A.R. hall iu tho laud; nnd "Teaching
Patriotism in tho Public Schools."
To tho second question wo would say, Do
what you can with tho school anthoritics, but
do not wait for thorn. Get up Saturday after
noon "Schools of Patriotism" in your Corps
rooms; invito all tho children who will como,
the more the belter; sccuro tho sorvices of
tho best instructor possiblo, in or out of the
Corps; have music, marching, tho flag saluto,
aud a little elementary instruction, each after
noon; and, our word for it, you will bo the
means of giving more pleasure and profit to
the child ron of tho community than can be
combined in any other way.
DKCLACATIOX OF INDEPENDENCE.
Col. Balch, in a description of his historic
chart of tho Declaration of Independence,
quotes William von Humboldt, tho great Ger
man educator, who Eaid that "whatever we
wish to sco introduced in the life of a nation
must first bo introduced in tho life of tho
schools." In tho course of his remarks ho says:
Tho millions of children who havo heretofore
been educated in our schools, uevor had tho
great privilege of seeing the Declaration in
its original form. For tho first time, there
fore, in the history of our Government, tho
youth of this Nation havo tho opportunity
presented them, not only of seeing the great
charter of our liberties, just as it was signed
by the 50 representatives of tho 13 colo
nies who, as Benjamii Franklin remarked
at tho time, "would hang separately, if they
did not hang together," but of having bofore
them, ou the same shce't, the veritable history
of the venerable document. '
When it is burun iu mind that revolt against
the Government of Grcit Britain was treason,
and that iu that day, as was proved by many
cruel examples, the penalty of treason was con
fiscation of all wordly possessions, attainder of
blood, hanging aceoinp.iliied Jir beheading, dis
embowelling, cutting out lliojfcart, and quarter
ing the body of tho traitor, in accordance with
the savago penal code of a brutal age; wo can
better understand how deep is the significance
of tho language in which, in subscribing to tho
" Nation's title dcod." those courageous repre
sentatives thereby " pledged their lives, their
fortunes, and their sacred honor," to tho cuuso
they had espoused. ,
With a knowledge of, llieso facts, and with
the sign manuals of those' ifoblo men ever be
fore litem, the vast army of ourschool children
will appreciate, n3 they could in no other way,
the words of tho poet Winttier in his odo to
Gov. Harriett, ono of the .signera, in which ho
In thai great hour of destiny,

President recommends that theso committees

Tho Ohio Soldiers' and Bailors' Orphans'
Home Should Have the Historic World's
Visitots to tho World's Fair who visited tho
Ohio Building will recall tlio group of statuary
which stood on tho lawn to tho left of tho
grand portico, and which was uuvailed with
proper ceremonies earlyin the season.
This group represents "Ohio," aatatoly figure
of heroic size, standing like Cornelia, mother
of tho Gracchi, with her civil aud military
heroes around her Chase, Stanton, Garfield,
Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan saying, "Theso
are my jewels."
Now that tho great World's Fair is a thing of
the past, a patriotic movement has begun in Ohio
to place tho Ohio group ou tho lino plat in
front of tho Administration Building of tho
Ohio Soldiers' and Sailora' Orphans' Homo
There it would stand forever an object-lesson
in patriotism, pure citizenship and immortal
valor to tho children of tho great State which
furnished great citizens and great soldiers, aud
one-tenth of all tho men who bore arms in tho
old heroic days that saved the Union of States
aud placed the flag of National iudepeudouco on
tho highest summits of fame.
At tho last mooting tho Board of Trustees of
the Ohio Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Homo
issued an appeal to the people of Ohio, fully
setting forth tho project and asking their assist
ance in securing needful legislation.
Veterans of tho Grand Army and women of
tho Relief Corps who read The National Trib
une and their namo is legion can render
good Bervico by soliciting tho support of their
Representatives in tho Legislature in support
of this measure.
Tho resolutions of tho Board aro to tho effect
that tho original act, providing for the memo
rial design placed on the Ohio Building lot in
tho grounds of tho World's Columbian Exposi
tion at Chicago, provides that " tho said memo
rial design shall bo removed to Columbus, O.,
and placed permanently in tho rotunda of tho
Capitol," and said design is too heavy and cum
bersomo and dangerous to be so plarcd. The
Ohio Soldiers' und Sailors' Orphans' Homo ap
peals to tho patriotic pride and nobler senti
ments of the people of this State, as a con
spicuous monumout of tho gonur.il redemption
of thoir pledges made to tho soldiers at the
beginning of the war, tho highest compliment
Ohio can pay to hor illustrious sous whoso
satuots ornament the pedestal of this memorial
design is to placo it where their memories will
bo perpetually invoked for tho inspiration of
her orphan children ; therefore, tho Legislature
is respectfully requested to so modify said origi
nal act. eithor by ametidmout or by joint reso
lution, as will authorize and direct that said

and turning tbo hearts of all for individual and
National help to tho God of battles. Ths same
was true- in the late civil war. No factor was
more potent in all the3e directions than tks
God-fearing, patriotic ministry of the land.
Why may not the thousands of G.A.R. Chap
lains now exert such a commanding influence
over the veterans committed to their care?
They can. Now is our opportunity. To-morrow
will be too late.
Some Chaplains realize this and are bestir
ring themselves. Others seem ignorant of, er
indifferent to, thoir high privilege and duty. It
is to theso wo appeal.
Arouso yourselves ! Help us to help thesea
growing weak and weary, and dropping oat at
tho astonishing rate of 100 a day.
How was it in tho days of war? Did a com
rade wounded, Bick, or suffering, ever appeal
to you in vain? When he asked for a drink
from your canteen, a hardtack from your haver
sack, or a friendly lift from yourstrongerhand,
did yon tarn a deaf car to hi3 cry, or turn from
him with indifference? No, indeed! Yoaweze
too good a soldier, too trne a comrade for that!
Snrely, to-day, comrades appeal for help.
Comrades broken in body, wounded in spirit,
suffering in soul, by their very attitude, if not
iu words, beseech your friendly aid. What
answer will you make to them? Will yon
close yonr ears, pass on the othor side, and
coldly leave them to tho kindlier sympathies
of some outside Samaritan? For the honor of
our comradeship and our Christianity, let asb
the helpful Samaritans.
Let us make a united effort to do somethlsg
for our faltoring comrades. There is no & ele
so inviting and so promising for our wise effort

ON THE SKIEMISH-LINE.
Among the live G.A.R. Chaplains la Et.
T. H. H agerty, D. D of St. Louis, Chaplain of
Ransom Post and of the Department of His
eouri. He was a Chaplain in the war, and bai
been unceasing in his activity in the G.A.B,
and among the comrades sinco the war. F07
many year3 he has been Post Chaplain, and 1ft
all these years has scarcely been absent from
Post meetings. Chaplain Ilagerty is deeply
interested in this work, and writes as follows:
"I think a Chaplain, first of all, can be helpful
to his Post hy being a truo Christian zentle
man. Otherwise he will be a reproach and
stumbling-block. Further, he can aid greatly
by being punctual at Post meeting?, and by
giving Btrictand intelligent attention to busi
ness. Further, be can aid by the advocacy of
industry, temperance, and good morals gene
rally. A good, honest, consistent Chaplain is
the army was always respected, and was vott
nsefnl in the service. The same is trne in th
G.A.R. Better no Chaplain than to ba7e OB
who is a reproach. Let the Chaplain be for
ward in all good counsels and suggestions, and
back them up with a consistent life, and ht
will be of great value to his Post."
Hero 13 the ripe fruitage of long and suc
Chaplain G. T. Dennis, of J. Righter Post,
Eldred, Pa., also catches the spirit, and send
good cheer: "I am very much pleased to fled,
as published in our soldiers' paper, The Na
tional Tribune, that an organization of the
G.A.R. Chaplains has been effected. I think
that the oflico of Chaplain is a very important
and responsible one, and should be filled, if
possible, by a comrade who is, if not a minister,
a professed Christian. I think the time has
como whtn we ought to be more particular on
that point. Our ranks are thinning very rap
idly, and therefore, in view of the fact that
we are all getting old. I think the office of
Chaplain is a very important and responsible
one; and it behooves ns as Chaplains to lLag
nify our responsible office, and not be bound
merely by the ritual service. Wo can be very
useful iu the Post-room and various otheCf
places with the boys, hy giving a word of
counsel or reproof, and visiting our comrades
who may bo sick, or their families in times of
sickness or suffering or in the dying hour.
Thus may we fulfill our obligations as Chap
lains, and 00 in oar various Posts useful, and
the means of accomplishing much good."
Comrade E. H. Rogers, of Chelsea, Miss., U
fired with tho prospect of an aroused Chap
" I havo just read with profound satisfaction,
in The National Tribune, of tho formation
of tho Chaplains' organization, and also of
your leadership. You will not need that I
send you a long letter, to understand jaat
what I wonld have yon do; that is, to enlaig
the conception of tho present opportunity of
the ex-Chaplains from the personal to tbe gen
eral. I feel that it is a trouble with tho G.A.R
itself, that it has not risen into any trne con
ception of the results of its own work."
Chaplain-in-Chief A. V. Kendr'ck, a stirring,
onergetie, devout minister and comrado, is
heartily with us in this endeavor to do some
thing for the comrades and to Order, and
writes words of good cheer. Thus tho leaves
is working. Who will bo nest to take np $h
pen aud gospel sword ?
I would liko tho opinion of 1,000 Chap
lains and other com ades as to tho probabl
proportion of .he veterans who are activa
Christians. I am sure thoso who have not
considered it will be astonished at the larga
p"rccutum thus in the army of our God
doing good service. What i3 yonr estimate,
based upon your observation? Te Chaplains
of the civil war are growing old; most hav
joined the bivouac on the otho- side, wnilt
thoso remaining aro feeble, yet full of enthusi
asm aud remiuisceuces. Will not such writ
03 brief accounts of their war experience, in
cidents, etc.? The comrades will be oelighted
to bear from these Chaplains who, amid tht
billows of war, win their cotifidenco and love.
Our good Chaplain Adams, of the 121st N, ?,,
said that at one time during the war not at
officer of the regiment drank ny Lind ef la
toxicants. Did ny other Chaplain havo a lik
experience ? What have the old Chaplains to w
about the prayer and preaching services thry
held, and the "boys" altendinc them? Whal
have the comrades to say about their Chaplains,
their preaching their conduct during tho war?
