the National assoceiation for thme cour
'I esies, buit thme malijor' por't.ioni of' his
speech was in the form of a plea for
eloser social andl coimeial relations .i
between the Undited States and Ger'
many. Ho spoke of the common in
terests of the two countries and grew
very eloquent on the sutbject. He had
a surprise for the association in thmei
diandsome anedal which he presented
in closing his speech, the medal hav-t
ing been given by Emporer William, L
rwho also gave the .present medal now
in use. He spoke with gret apprecia
tion of the honor conferred -upon him f
an being the medium of the presonta
tionof he avo ofthe emperor.Th <
uAe of one medal deprived the incomn
ang officer of wearing the proud em
blem unitil just before the close of
the festival and the suggest.ion of
'iuperor William, as explained by Dr.
Zoeffpiel, was a happy suggestion that
there should be two medals, one to
be worn by the retiring president,
tie officers alternating in presenting
the medal to their successors.
Congressman Legare, an oirnest
worker in behalf of the success of
the festival closed the speaking exer
cises, speaking in his usual interest
ing and eloquent style.
With the conclusiom of congress
man Legare's speech, the merry mak.
