ing i. A. IL The ball was crowded with
comrades and friends, and deep enthusiasm
prevailed. The jsist hall was look-
I mg at its tiest. . tmii who is '
desirous of selling Mitchell post some ap-,
pmpriate (i. A. U. luniture. had replaced !
the otlicers' tables with others made up en-'
tlrcly of soldierly designs. For example, ,
the altar for the center of the room consist
ed of a mouutisl cannon, bronzed, and very
much resembling the ordinary held-piece;
the commander's desk consisted of a cais-
111 resting on four inverted cannon; tne
M'tilor vice's table was a capstan and an
chor; the junior vice's, a large drum, and
the chaplain s. a rustic stump. These add i
very much to the appearance of the hall, j
and it is very likely that the tsist will pur-'
chase them. I
Six: new liiemlsTs were mustered in lat '
night and two reinstated. Three of those
mistered appeared only last night, and
their muster was accomplished under a spe

this city, commencing on Wednesday, April
J7. at 10 o'clock iu 111. Iluring the entire
session of the encampment of three
days, it is eseclally ordered that every
officer and comrade of the "post wear his

afternoon at l:;;u o'clock sharp, the post
will assemble at their headquarters for
parade, and Comrade It. 1.. Kiljiatrick is
hereby detailed to act as grand marshal of
said parade, with power to select his own
personal statr. and issue his own orders
pertaining thereto. It is hoped and e.x
Ifted that every comrade will exert him
self, and use every endeavor to make this
department encampment, a complete suc
cess, and thereby reflect credit iimii the
post, and honor to the city in which we re
side. l!y order

The rest of the meeting was devoted to
siieceh making, t olonel Conger was called
upon and made a timely and stirring ad
dress, just such as pleased the (1. A. It.
lsiys. Ue said that Ohio was ahead of New
York, and only. second to l'ennsylvaiila in
numbers, that state hav ing :!ii.000. while
this encampment reimrts will shows that
Ohio has :tr,oou. The (.. A. It. ought to
bring in all soldiers and sailors -they helped
to save the country and to them should be
given the honor. When he was in France
and Italy lie observed the superiority of
American institutions, and that these coun
tries were iK'ginning to see it. He expect
ed the national membership to reach 400,
000. and through the 0. A. It. sentiment
the soldier should obtain his dues. The
surplus money in the treasury should be
uisiriouiea in pensions to those who saved
the country. If tliey stand together with
out regard to party this result can be ac
complished. Past Commander Brown found
that In Ohio there were 4.00 soldiers in
lioor houses. Through the influence of G.
A. It. St0,000 had lieen obtained bv legis
lation for the state soldiers' home: it had
been established, and the Increase of the
levy to three-tenths of a mill will give
stoo.ooo, which will furnish cottages ami
homes for all. Don't talk imlltics, but only
what concerns old soldiers, and if all pull
together we will jet get the pension bill
through congress. Ceneral Warner voted
for the bill, but had not the nerve to vote to
pass it over the president's veto. At the
camp-lire Colonel Conger said he would
present statistics of what had been accom
plished through the influence of the (,.
Assistant Adjutant (ieneral K. F. Tag
gert was next called tisin. He said lie
would not make a sinscch. but would tell a
story of an incident that happened whili
returning from Calitornia, tune of national
encampment. A fellow 011 the cars had
been lull for several days, and while talk
ing to him it was found the "cuss" had
been in the rebel ami). He urged with
drunken gravity : "If it had not lieen for
the south where would your grand armv
have Ixvn." Taggert was in prison at
Anilersouvillc. Not many n-alle how
many died in these pens. Theie were ls(),
000 captured. IDn.OOO in 11ris.u1, and a good
many paroled on lield; ::o.oo0 -tarved to
death and 00 per cent, of remainder have
since died from the result of being in
prison. The government owes to every
soldier a pen-Iou. hut he is not likely to get
it while there is a president that can pull
his shirt oil over Ids head without unbut
toning the collar. There is due each
soldier Ji'..4" jier month for time served, on
account of the depreciation of the paper
money with which they were paid when
gold was worth S2 so. if all stand and pull
together it will result in a pension for all.
II. X. Johnson, department historian. was
Introduced by Colonel Stewart. Colonel
Conger remarked that the historian was the
handsomest man on the start 1 which was
about literally true). Johnson got back at
the commander b) saying that if that were
true, the chairman had shown good i.-iste in
introducing age before lieauty. Mr.Johnsoii
made a short but happy address, and was
followed by acting Assistant Adjutant
Chas. E. York, of Akron, who has charge
of the state G. A. It statistics. Comrade
York made the gratifying statement that
Mltchel post stood a Xo. 1. in the depart
ment, and was considered a model G. A. It.
These addresses closed the meeting,
which was odc of the best and most profit
able ever held by Mitchell jiost.

Tha decorations this season are jiarticu
larly elegant and elaborate, the chieftest
being expended on the interior of the Ar
cade, mentioned elsewhere, and Black's
opera house. The Interior of the latter
presents one mass of color ami blaze of
glory. The entire rear flat of the stage is
covered with what the decorators call a
"radh.tr." It consists of an immense
wheel composed of the national colors,
mingled with gilt and 1-ardered with small
tlags. The effect by gaslight is said to be
Over the center of the stage is a beauti

On the right hand side of the stage is a tig-1
ure of a soldier taking leave ot his wife for
the war, and In front of this plei-e is a por
trait of Lincoln and the figure of a bugler,
corresponding iq size to the drummer on
the left. The secretary's and president's
desk Is handsomely draped in tlags, and in
front of the stand is an excellent likeness
of General Grant On either side of the
stage between the proscenium and the
balcony hang Immense banners upon
which Is inscribed the names of the various

with the national flag tastefully grouped

The council of administration met this

A meeting of citizens and old soldiers
was held in the board of trade rooms at Co
lumbus last night for the purisiseof extend
ing a formal invitation to the national en
campment of tile G. A. It to meet in that
city 111 lsss. The Ohio Stnt4 .li.nnml of
today, says, in reference to the matter:
l'resident Itindall stated theobject of the
sieeial meeting and introduced (ieneral
Hurst, dirts-tor general of the Ohio centen
nial. This gentleman represented that the
question of having s-cial days for the dif
ferent organization and orders had sug
gested itself to the centennial commission
several weeks ago. The national eiieainn-
ment would eclipse all other combinations
by far. In three years the Grand
Army has grown from r.0.000 V
:;oo.ooo. Their encampments have
always lieen held in the extreme eastern 01
western cities, and this )ear it will be heli'
in St. Louis. General Hurst was of the
opinion that the encampment would bring
at least 100.1100 comrades to this city, be
sides others who would attend with them
and on account of the centennial and other
well known considerations it would be
reunion of such magnitude as was nevet
U'fore approached. Two great qestlon-pre-eiit
themselves, and to the first of these,
as to how the visitors can be entertained
(ieneral Hurst explained that a bureau
similar to that in Philadelphia in
17 would be thoroughly organized and
equipped, and that entertainment ticket
would be 011 sale at different cities hi thi
and neighboring states in connection with
excursion tickets. The -,eeond considera
tion was that of decorations, but the citv
would already be in holiday attire for the
centennial, and a very slight increase In the
expenditure in this would be required. The
first step would be to go to the state en
campment at Springtield. which is held to
morrow, and urge upon the delegates In at
tendance the Imiiortance of the matter to
Ohio as a state and get their indorsement
to the national encampment at St Louis Ir
August. The delegation would probably
lie headed by Governor Foraker.
The question of expense was discussed
in several of its bearings, and Cantain C
T. Clark stated that the neighboring village
of I lav ton was making a feeble effort to
get the plum, basing her claims principally
on the faet that the National Soldiers' houje
wa.s located there. They have guaranteed
the magnificent sum of SI 5, 000 for the en
tertainmt'iitof the encampment Philadel
phia is really the only competitor, and her
geographical position Is against her.
the universal sentiment was that Colum
bus should not attempt to buy thecomrades
of the Grand Army witli money In the
shajie of a guarantee fund, but should
pledge the hospitality of the city In all thai
the comprehensive word implies.
On motion of HC. Beach a committee.
composed of representative business and
Grand Army men. was appointed to go to
springtield tomorrow- to prestnt the mat'er
to the delegates to the state encampment
