Closing Days Proceedings
Detroit Mich August 0 The closing
of tlie twentyfifth annual encampment of
the A Ii opened as bright and balmy as
the previous days of the reunion Today
closes the business sessions of the order
Aen now the veterans ate leaving the city
It has been indeed a week of leunion Xo
less than eight national organizations are in
ession or have adjourned and the encamp
ment in its many innovations has certainly
been a greater success than any which have
preceded it
Some sensation has been created by the
die s of the president of the national
ssneiatinn or Union exprisoners of war E
II Williams of Indiana Ueferring lo the
treatment accorded exprisoners the presi
dent says In view of tlie great and peculiar
hardship and Ruffcrinsf endured as prisoners
we believe special compensation is due us
Many when captured were robbed of what
ittle earnings they had saved from the
small compensations allowed by the govern
ment as well as other valuables tuken from
them Many were held long months after
their term of service had expired while
others were compelled to expend their own
means in order to get home after their re
tease all of which ought to be valid claims
against the government For a number of
years bills have been presented to congress
looking to such measures as we felt were
due us but so far all of our appeals have
availed us nothing It would seem that the
sufferings and death ol 47000 of our com
rades who are buried around Southern
prisons should over be kept sacred in the
memory of what they have suffered for
their country for by the sacritire of such
men civilization survives Around the
names of Audeivonville Loreuce and other
prison will ever linger the memory of mis
ery and suffering which has no parallel in
history Yet for twentylive years our
goverumeni has never so much as given us
a vote of thanks for the sacrifice made
This portion of the presidents address
was formally approved by the association
Among the reirfirts of the committees made
was one embodying a bill to be presented
at the next session of congiess in behalf of
soldiers who were in prison for a period of
not less than sixty days or more providing
that they shall receive 2 for every day of
their confinement from the government

under the lire of the enemy not less than
ninety days or wounded and disabled from
further service A constitution and by
laws were adopted The association holds
its next annua meeting in Chicago
The sixteenth annual reunion of United
States veterans of the signal corps showed
a membership of 51J At the business ses
sion reports of officers and committees
were received and new officers and new
committees elected The latter committee
raised a 1000 subscription from tho e pres
ent toward erecting a monument to United
States veterans of the signal corps
The Ladies of the G A Ii have held
a very successful meeting The order is a
purely charitable and social institution and
was called into existence for the purpose of
taking into a benevolent working patriotic
association all members of soldiers fami
lies While the G A Ii excludes women
and the Womans Relief Corps excludes
men the Ladies of the G A It makes both
eligible admitting soldiers mothers wid
ows wives sisters or daughters and all
exsoldiers and marines Its popularity is
attested by its growth This is the fifth
year of its national organization Its total
membership is between 13000 and M000
and the president states that OO new cir
cles have been chartered during the past
year Its object is very broad being sim
ply to render protection and aid to all sol
diers their widows and orphans and see
that no one who has served his country in
its hour of need shall be an inmate of a
poorhouse Its revenue is derived from its
dues donations and proceeds of entertain
ments

forgery caused quite a sensation notwith
standing it was at first represented as

it which he proceeded to do
by paying part of it in cash and working in
another forged note with tho name of Col
Ben T Duval and Dr G Y Smith on it
However he had obtained Dr
Smiths signature by trickery
but did not present the note
at the bank that contained the genuine sig
nature He is also charged with taking
290 out of Col Duvals safe
and also that he had forged
Keysers name to a 2o0 note which
he had cashed at the German hank but this
note was taken up by a genuine note of

ANOTHER DAY OF IT
The Commissioners Ears Open
to Complaints
THEY HEAR NOTHING ELSE

Haulers Have to Saj

Specal to the tJazette
ArsTis Tim Aug C The discussion ol
the rate questions by the traffic men and
others to day was as active and interesting
a yesterday The song was varied some
what by the arrival of a delegation of
Northeast Tevas mill men who came to re
fute the rate logic of their Southeastern
brethren made yesterday and to susta a
the policy of the commission in promul
gating a mieage rate on their products
Mr Xcvvlin general freight agent of tha
Fort Worth and Denver railway the fir
to tackle the proiwed rates said that lui
represented th iargei single interest iu
the state which wi here doing business on
the faith of the state He discussed tuo
proposed tariff Xo 1 on wheat rye oals
and barley undertaking to how how is
would affect the road adversey
The chairman interrupted him to say
that his constiurtiou of the proposed rain
was erroneous and that the proposed
schedule permitted roads on a division of
freight to apportion the charge according to
the distance hauled bv each that is to say
the proposed rate on a haul of fifty miles u
7 cents If that haul is over two roada
each road receive > couts providing tho
haul of each is twentyfive miles A haul
of twentyfive mile on a single road is Ii
cents
Mr Xewliu compared the grain ratei
proposed with those of Georgia showing
that the latter on haul above thirty mile
were a tnllo higlir than the rales proposed
here lu explanation why interstate rates
were
LOWER THIN I Of VI RAIT
Mr Xowliu said that they were so pur
roselv in the interest of the people o
Texas and that if the roads shoald raise
the rates on interstate traffic to meet the
treatened reductions on local rates it would
be hard to teil what would beoiue of tha
state
This somewhat menacing remark was a
tritle at variance with the positive assur
ance given by several traffic men nt their
first meeting vv ith the commission that a
i eduction of local rates would be surely
followed by a corresponding reduction of
the interstate rate
General Freight Agent Polk of tho Aran
sas Pass read a comparative tabulated
statement showing the losses his road
would incur under the proposed rates Tho
average leduction in cotton would amount
to417 per cent The rates would decreaso
the net revenue of the road 20 per cent
below the operating expenses He desired
to enter a protest against any reduction
whatever in the articles included in tha
proposed schedules unless he could
be shown wherein the commission
would make up tne loss in
other things As other rates
v rre already pretty well up he doubted if
the commission could make the increase
elsewhere necessary to effect
TnE NEEDED COMIEVSVTION
Mr Polk sprong a difficulty in whieo
points on separate roads may he competi
tive though not junction points and there
fore not entitled to the 10 per cent reduc
duction allowed tho long haul at juuetiou
points
Chairman Reagan admitted the force of
the difficulty and expressed a wish to hear
from the traffic men any reasonable solu
tion they might have So far he had heard
only stories of losses from tho system
and not a word of the gains
which somebody on somo road
must enjoy He heard only from the long
haul fellows and would like to hear from
the short haul gentlemen
The latter failed to show up
Mr Laceyof Waco explained how tha
present system of localing cotton to tha
nearest compress was more desirable and
profitable than that proposed by tho com
mission
The chairman asked if justice would no
result to all if cotton localed to the com
press in whatever direction should pay
freight from the initial point of shipment
The reply was that perhaps it would
Mr Trammel of the Texas Trunk line
read a comparative statement showing tha
percentage of reduction resulting to his
road from the proposed rates
Mr Reed representing the Houston cot
ton exchange asked that the commission
take into account iu its cotton rate the dif
ferential of 10 cents existing at present be
tween water and rail transportation from
Houston and Galveston
General Freight Agent Masters of tha
Gulf Colorado and Santa Ke placed soma
tabular statements liefore the commissiou
showing the effect of the proposed rates oa
his road and also showing that the pro
posed salt rate was
LOWER THAN IX KVNsVS
Mr Terry of tho Gulf Colorado and Santa
Fc said that cotton timber aud cattle would
have to bear tho burden of the freight tar
iffs because they were about the only ar
ticles of commerce that brought any reve
nue into the state As well place ail
tlie freight on cotton a half on cotton and
half on the calico brought into the state
Reduce the tarilT on cotton and something
else must shoulder the burden of the reduc
tion
Several lumbermen of Xortheast Texas
appeared to explain how the proposed lum
ber rate on the mileage system
would serve to equalize the conditions
between Xorthwest and South
East Texas mills Under the existing
blanket system Beaumont and Orange lum
ber reaches Sherman and Denison ut tha
same rate given the mills at or near Tex
arkana The inequality of such a system
was apparent and could only be corrected
bv some such system as that proposed by
the commission
After two days talking and palavering
the commission and the railroad men looked
fapged and anxious to be rid of this rata
question when tj oclock arrived this after
noon but the powwow is not yet ended
ludgc Reagar having stated that the cotton
Belt desired to be heard tomorrow Doubt
less others will be here to make statements
as it is the policy of the commission to give
the fullest hearing to every one qualified to
throw any light on the situation
