The proceedings In connection w.th

available for tha subsequent gatherings
they were h;ld In Druid's ITall. There
were about 500 of the veterans In attend.
ancc. Several ladles wer! also present,
and a number ot visitors.
General M. D. Monson presided. The
proceedings la the morning were ct a
business character. Nearly three hours
were occupied In going through the roll
of the veterans. Several attempts were
nude to take the list as read, but the
meetii g In.-istcd on the roll being called
and each man having an opportunity cl
seeing that his name and address, and
the company and regiment iu which he
served, were correctly set fcrth on the
Alter Secretary A. M. Kenaday had
completed the reading ot the list Gen
era. Johl D. Stevenson, of this city,
de' vered an oration, in which he
sraphically recounted the details of
the war and the exploits of the volun
teers under Generals Taylor, Winfle d
Scott, Doniphan, Harney and Price,
lie said tie record ot the Mcx-cia
war was one of ublch those who took
part In it might well be proud. The
National Leg! lature had failed to
properly recognize their services, and
rightly they were amar-d and Indig
nant at the repeated rejections of their
demand. No National cum teries con
tained the bones ot their dead comrades.
They were moldcring oa the fields where
the heroes fell. The Mexicaa war
soldiers had received few testimonies
ot their country's gratitude, but they
had raised an Impcri-hable monument
In the shape of the territory which
was added to the country by their
valor and endurance. The address was
enthusiastically received by the veter
ans, who accorded General Stevenson
a hearty vote ot thanks at its clos:.
The committees then reported. Oa the
recommends! I n ot the committee, four
resolutions were unanimously accepted
by the meeting. The first congratulated
the association on ths attendance of so
many veterans at the reunion, and ex
pressed sympathy with the telatlves ol
veterans who had died since the last
annual gathering at Washington. The
others bad reference to the pension ques
tion. The first was to th fleet that ths
services ot the soldiers ol the Mexican
war entitled them to ths rams recognl
tion at .he hands of the Government as
those n ho had borne arms In th defense
of the honorand Integrity of the country
oo other fields. Toe second set forth
that the veterans regarded is unjust the
discrimination schlch had been made
against them In the matter ol pensions,
and asked Congress to comply with the
demands of tha twenty-eight States by
placing the few survivors of Jhe wsr
upoa the pension roll on equal terms
with the pensioners of the war ot
ISIS. The last resolution declared that
wbde the bill passed the House ot Rep
resentatives last session was acceptable
to the veterans they protested against

it was asserted, wero outrageous and of.

dcslrabillty of passing a vote thinks to
Martin L Townsheud, Congressman, ot
Illinois, for his eifurts to pass the pen

deemed inadvisable to pus a special vote
to Mr. Townshend, and a resolution was
adopted thanking all the members of
Houses who stood by the cause f the
veterans In the effort to pass the pensions
A resolution was next passed expres
sive of the egret of the veterans at the
death ot Mr. Reynold., ot Philadelphia,

Mr. Mm too, Chief ot the Bureau ot Statis
tics, yesterday handed In his annual re
port to the Secretary ot the Treasury.
The matter of chief Importance treated
of Is the emrmous magnitude ot our
internal commerce. It Is shown that
the value of the products of the various
Industries of the United States Is seven
times the total value ot our foreign com
merce; nearly three times the total value
ot the foreign commerce of Great Brit
ain and Ireland, and fire times the to
tal value of the foreign commerce ot
France, Including ln.each case both Its
ports and exports.
The total value of the products of in
dustry In the United States is also shown
to be a little more than twice the total
value ot Imports ot merchandlzo from
all the countries of Europe. The United
States Is now the largest manufactur
ing country on the globe. The value of
products ot American manufacture con
sumed at home Is fire times th: value ot
the manufactured products ot Great
Britain and Ireland exported to all other
countries, and more than fourteen times
the value ot the exports ot manufactured
products from Franco to all other coun
tries. The relative value ot the Internal as
compared with the foreign commerce ot
the country is also Illustrated by state
ments shotring that 93 per cent ot the
coal mined in this country, 95 per cent,
of our Iron and steel products, 95 per
cent, ot the products ot oar leather In
dustry, more than 93 per cent, ot our
manufactures of wool, 95 per cent ot the
products of our cotton manufactures,
more than 93 per cent ot our manu
factures ot silk, and 97 per cent, of our
manufactures ot glass, glassware,
earthenware and stoneware are con
sumed In the United Slates.
Referring to period of phenomenal
prosperity and of phenomenal depres

larged the commercial and Industrial
growth of the cuuatrr, ho says: "Ex

he Ihed. If Obert would give him
his dauihtcr In marriage. Although
the dauchtcr was entirely ignorant of
the fact that the widower Mine desired to
irony her. her parents rageily accepted his
oiler. They said nothing to the girl about
their intentions towanls her, and Mines
never alluded to It In his dally conversations
wiih her. The Oberts at once began to pre
pare for the wedding, which was set down
for the evening of October 1. Week before
