The election to-day culminated as your

The report of the committee in favor of
holding the next encampment at Shamokin
was adopted, but when it) became understood
later that the place could only accommodate
500 there was a general remonstrance.
The soldiers orphan school question was
disposed of to-day, to the surprise of every
one, without debate. The committee to
whom the report had been referred reported
back to the department a scheme for han
dling the matter, which was that schools be
continued without limit, but nonew appli
cations be accepted, although it is said there
are hundreds of them on file.
A NEW PLAN.
The commander was asked to appoint a
committee of five to take charge of the
orphans' school question. The Legislature
will be asked to put the whole affair ia the
hands of a commission. George Wright
and his henchmen from Mercer saved their
bacon by the hardest kind of work, although
every member of the Grand Army looks
with disgust upon the last 'scandal at Mc
Alisterville. Resolutions were adopted indorsing the
Legislative bill to prevent the sale of liquor
on Decoration Day; commending Major
Tyron's management of the Soldiers' Home;
to appoint a committee to harmonize the
relations between the two ladies' organiza
tions whicb are associated but not connected
with the Grand Army; recommending that
pension examining boards be made up of
ex-soldiers, and thanking the posts and peo
ple of Erie for their hospitality.
The Ladies of the Grand Army, or that
organization which accepts only the imme
diate relatives of the soldiers, elected offi
cers to-day as follows: President, Mrs.
Charles Sheriffs, Pittsburg; Senior Vice,
Mrs. Caroline Atkinson. Erie; Junior Vice,
Mrs. M. Carey, Millville; Treasurer, Mrs.
Eachael Doran, Pittsburg; Chaplain, Mrs.
Adelia Murray, Pittsburg; Delegate-at-Large,
Mrs. C. G. Bruner, Altoona; Council
of Administration, Mrs. Julia M. Johnson,
Altoona; Mrs. Nellie Rupert, Allentown,
and Mrs. Margaret Eeed, Pittsburg.
SO UNION IN THEIRS.
The Ladies of the G. A. R. will not ac
cept any suggestion from the department as
to merging into a union with the Woman's
Belief Corps. They are entirely satisfied with
their prosperity, and growth and will not
widen their condition of admission so as to
admit of a union with the Woman's Relief
Corps, which will accept any loyal lady as
The Women's Belief Corps of the Grand
Army concluded its labors by installing its
officers to-night as follows: President, Mrs.
Helen M. Morrison, Smethport; Senior
Vice, Mrs. Emma S. Lindsley, Warren;
Junior Vice, Mrs. James Ltley, Erie;
Treasurer, Mrs. Evans, Lock Haven; Chap

The Cominitteeon the Widows reported a
scheme for dividing the State up into 15
eections,andMrs. Wittcnmycr was appointed
at the head of a Committee of Fifteen to
carry out the plans which were adopted.
Fairs will "be held in all of the districts, and
these will lead up to a State fair for the
benefit of the home. It is the intention to
start at first with a rented building.
A BROAD INSTITUTION.
The institution will accept indigent sol
diers and their wires, and also widows and
orphans. The relief corps say they will go
ahead with the scheme regardless of the
action of the Grand Army department, but
have asked their co-operation as a matter of
A resolution was passed on the subject of
soldiers orphans' schools which is very ex
pressive, and which is easily understood
when prefaced by the corps' action upon
-their own proposed home. It is as follows:
In view of the condition of the soldiers or
phans' schools and lack of confidence in the
management. iV favor the discontinuance as
' soon as possible, but recommend the continued
aid and the supervision of the State in behalf
of these children.
It comes from good authority that the
Women's Belief Corps will send a commit
tee to Harrisburg to work for an appropria
tion for the Widows and Orphans' Home.
The plan is to have a school in connection
' with the home. Mrs. Wittenmeyer is be

One of Ayer's Pills, taken after dinner,
or a dose at night before retiring, never

Pills are unequaled.

Conn., testifies: "I have used Ayer's
Pills for the past thirty years and con
sider them an invaluable family medi
cine. I know of no better remedy for
liyer troubles, and have always found
them a prompt cure for dyspepsia."

Dyspepsia, complicated with enlarge
ment of the Liver, most of the time
being unable to retain any food in his
stomach. Three boxes of Ayer's Pills
cured him. .
