WAsn\IsGarOx, August :.-Gen. Rose
crans recently received from Charles
Whitehead, chairman of the committee
on resolutious of the National Veteran
Association, Des Moincs, Iowa, copies
of the resolutions adopted by that asso
ciation repudiating the utterances o
certain members of the Grand Army of
the Republic in conection with the pro
posed visit of the President to St. Louis
while the Grand Army of the Republic
encampment is in progress there; com
mending the President's veto of the de
pendent pension bill, and condemning
the efforts of those who seek by the rebel
flag episode "to rekindle the ilames of
sectional hate and contention as uuman
ly, unpatriotid and meriting the con
tempt of intelligent mnI."
The resolutions also compliment Gen.
Black's administration of the Pension
Office. Gen. Roscerans was requested
to deliver copies of these resolutions to
both the President and to Gen. Black.
To-day he called on the President and in
presenting them said:
omN. .osEcr.ANs Xu-REss.
"Mr. President, at the request of the
National Veterans' Association, of Des
Moines, Iowa, in mass convention as
sembled, on the 15th day of July ultimo,
I )-ve the honor to present to you thiz,
engrossed copy of the resolutions then
passed, declaring the views of those
veterans respecting the attempts of cer
tain officers and members of the society
of the Grand Army of the Republic to
prevent the President of the United
States from accepting hospitalitie s ten
dered to him by the city of St. Louis on
the occasion of the meeting of the Na
tional Encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic, which had voted to be
come her guests.
"As a member of that society it affords
me pleasure to perform this duty and to
state my concurrence im the sentiment
expressed in those resolutions. I am
pleased to say that I believe the general
tenor of- these resolutions is in accord
with the views and feelings of the vast
majority of the members of the Grand
Army of the Republic as to the loyal re
spect due the Chief Magistrate of the
Union, and as to the impropriety of de
nouncing him for doing what he believes
to be his official duty. I feel equally
assured that those sentiments will com
mand the assent of that much larger
body of en-Union soldiers not belonging
to the society of the Grand Army of the
Republic who are surviving members of
the real Grand Army of the Republic,
which, after having saved the nation's
life, dissolved and joined the great in
dustrial body which assures the wealth,
the glory and the prosperity of our
THE PvimENT'S REPLY.
President Cleveland, replying to Gen.
"Without reading the resolutions pre
sented by you in such a gratifying man
ner,I have only to say that, judging;
from the tenor of your rem-' 's, the
action of the veterans mentic, -d is in
the direction of acknowledging the duty1
which devolves upon them as veterans~,
to emphasize the value of their services
in the field by patriotic service at home,
and to demonstrate the same bravery'
shown in battle by a courage no less
conspicuous when called upon to defend
and maintain the freedom and patriotism
which in peace is the safety of American
institutions. Understanding this to be
the purpose of thie resolutions, I am glad
to receive them at your hands."
Gen. Rosecrans t - day sent the follow
ing note to Coin. ,ner Black, with
copies of the resolumi s:
"Gnmma: In compliance with the re
qetcontained in the accompanying
letrfrom the chairman of the commit
-tee on resolutions, it affords me great
pleasure to present this engrossed copy
of the resolutions expressing the senti
ments of the Democratic veterans of the
National Veterans' Association, of D)es
Moines, Iowa, in mass convention as
sembled July 15, 1887.
SCORING G3EN. TCTTLE.
* "These resolutions are replete with
patriotism, good sense and just denun
ciation of the disloyalty to tne country
and treason to the spirit of the society
of the Grand Army of the Repubhic
manifested in the recnt attempts of
*certain officers and members of that or
ganization to raise for partisan purposes~
an outcry against the Chief Magistrate
of the nation, and to prevent him from
accepting the hospitalitics tendered him
by the city of St. Louis at the same time
that the National Encampment of that
order had accepted her invitation to a
generous welcome. No less gratifying
are the declarations of the resolutions,
characterizing as whoily incompatible
-with that loyalty which is one of the
three fundamentals of that society the
attempt to use its voice in denunciation
of the President for the discharge of a
painful duty according to his judgment
"When it is remembered that largely
more than one-half the rank and file of
the Union army, probably of those en
listing for the three months' service and
certainly of those who came in after
wards, were either D)emo'cratic or merely
Union men, it will be plainly seen why
the G. A. R. as a Republican machine
was a miserable failure; why it at a later
,time only revived when non-partisanship
was made fundamental; why the hypoc
risy of violating this principle by taking
small partisan advantages im the choice
of its oflicers, posts and comnmanderies
and the paying of special public favors
and honors to comrades of the Republi
can persuasion had hitherto created such
a disgust of its spirit as to prevent the
society from including double and possi-,
bly triple its present membershnip and
commanding universal respect for that
self-controlling loyalty which covered
with glory its members during the dark
days of war for tlie Union.
"The resolutions well say that if this
spirit of partisanship cannot be rest rain
ed it will be a matter to be considered:
whether the survivors of the real Grand
Army of the Republic would not better
have some other organization.
"I take pleasure in notirg the just
commendation given in the resolutions~
to the administration of the Pension
Office since you have been Commissioner
of Pensions. Yiours truly,
"W. iS. Rossesns."
Mr. Whitehead in his letter to Gien.
Rosecrans asks the General to preaent
these resolutions in the name of at least
ten thousand ex-Union soldiers of Iowa.

Dr. McGlynn has induced some of on:r t

form of excommunication which is to i
found in Ste ne's veracious history of "Tri

on more than one occasion, and its publi
tion as the genuine form used by t he Chunri
has always been promptly refuted. Never
theless, some secular papers have repeated
it at this time, neglecting, either through
ignorance or malice, to attibute it to is
true source. It was widely published about
the time of Victor Emmuanuei's excommun':
cation, and his Eminence Cardinal Gib!,
refers to it in his book, "The Faith of Oar
Fathers," in these terms: The "c-urse is a
