meeting of the post. Then there kdi nn
open session, In which theie wns plenty
of excellent tniHc, many Rood speeches
and nn alitlndnnco of good cheer. Post

ant adjutant general of MIsouil; John
W, Scott, Inspector Rencrnl, and 12. .1,
Smith, Judge ndVocnto of the depart

Commander Louis ilruntl, of St. LntiK
would nlso be present and the meeting
was arranged for his reception, but yes
terday morning lmpoitant matters con

When the time came for speeches dur
ing the evening Department Commander
W. P. Campbell, of Kansas, responded
with a statement of the order In general
nnd of the state of Kansas In pirtlcular.
The condition of the older In his state,
he declared, never was better or moie
encoui.iRlng than nt the picsent time.
Theie was one startling leatuie In the
annual icpoits coming In, and that was
the ndvanco statement of the chaplain
i elating to the deaths during the past
jeai. Theie would be about 500 ic
ported for the past -ear, but, notwith
standing that fentuie, the oiganizatlon
was actively engaRed In label s. and,
despite the hard times, there would be no
loss In membeishlp, outside of deaths,
to repoi t when the dep.u tment met nt
Lnvvience soon. The posts had been
cmed for In good shape duilng the past
)ear and there had been a iehal of
Intel est all oer the state. Of the 4fi"
I osts In the state, theie had been nil
but twenty Inspected since December I.
It was a noticeable fact, he said, that
each post had done some wotk dining
the ear and the lesult was that Kansas
wus to be one of the few states In the
countrv that would have no loss In
membership during the haul ear just
The annual encampment of the depatt

and was to be the luigcst and best meet

inspltatlon of their presence to the gath

membeis In this city to attend.
John I. Pachall, assistant adjutant
general of Missouri, spoke for that de

but In the country posts theie was, In
many cases, an inciease. Taken ns a
whole, tlio department was In splendid
shape and theie was gie.it cause for
congratulation. Touching the matter of
the decieaso in moinbeibhlp, Mr. Pach
"Tho huge number of membeis
dtopped mo for the non-payment of

many cases the conuudes aio not nblo
