.Mr. Miruupf having stated that some
troll fencing would be needed, Mr. 1-orenz
moved that the rouiuuttee on building and
repairs be authorized to receive bids for
necessary iron fencing for different build
lugs, where needed, similar to the fence at
the Clifton street building, or after an
other good pattern, and report the same at
the next or the next following meeting.
At the next meeting of the board, held
Jul j lstli, the committee on building and
repairs reported a large nuiulier of im
provements needed about the various
school buildings of the city. The only part
of this report liertlnent to the rase, is that

with several amendments, none of which
pertained to the matter of iron fences. On
motion of Mr. itidgeJ) the committee was
autlionred to receive bids for the work.
The committee on building aud repairs
consists of Messrs. Frauk Mminpf, of the
Seventh ward; It. J. Heck, of the Third, and
A. It. bpieluian, of the Second. Mr. bpiel

gentlemen. He Is an anient prohibitionist

the amount ol fencing required was
about 17 feet, more or less, for the High

Between July 7 and July IS the com
mitter on building and repairs had time
to look up the iron fencing
matter. With almost a certainty
that these resolutions for various Improve

The camp-tire at Camp Clark, so fondly
anticipated by the old soldiers, wasgreatly
disturbed by the rain last evening. Ample
provisions had been made for an out-door
meeting, but a heavy rain came up just
when the meeting should have begun, and
so it became necessary to go totheuiiin
hall, or the headquarters of the Forty -fourth.
It was half past ctight when tlie
meeting was called tj order by Comrade
Cllne, In the absence of Captain Ab Mat
tox, who was to have led the caiuji-hre, but
who was unavoidable alisent.
Comrade Cllne, after a few timely re
marks, introduced Mayor O S Kelly, who
extended the freedom and hospitality of the
c.ty, giving the old boys a cordial welcome.
He spoke nt the several organizations that
had gone out from thlscity and county, and
and especially ot the Fort) fourth, which,
just twenty-six ) ears ago this month, was
camped upon the same grounds now occu
pied b) Camp Clark, and left for the froot
1,000 strong. He said the citizens
were proud of them, as well as
of all other companies or detachments,
who left our count) for the war, as all did
their dut) nobly.
The rt-spouse was made by Col. I,. W.
Tulleys, of Iowa, colonel of the Forty
fourth, who read refulls-prepared ad
dress, containing m ,'ixsl points, but he
unfortunately wound up by givlugaset
prohibition speech, to which the boys
strongly objected. So great was this feel
ing that at last the) forced the Colonel by
their disapproval to suliside, one old vet
calling out, "No iolltics at a camp tire."
What he said was well enough hail it been
in its proper place, but as one comrade re
marked he was just one we'ek teo late, that
he "should have been at the late prohibi
tion camp meeting"'
The Big Six then plived a lively selec
tion, after which Cagt Win. Wade, of the
Thirty-first Ohio, now of Missouri, was
introduced as master or ceremonies, tor the
rest of the evening He responed in a few
brief words, telling humorously about his
connection with the war, and of his grett
monest). which had a!wa)s prevented him
from doing an) thing eminent, either as a
soldier or a citizen Captain Wade repre
sented Missouri In congress most bril
liantly. He then called for the next
speaker on tlie programme.

Mitchell spoke of his own regiment, which
left Urbana in lSiil. LOM strong, of which
only U5 of the original returned, aud that
the 86th had tne Honor oi oeing me nrsi

Captain Wade opened the meeting for vol

but was called up to make one himself. He
responded, and In strong terms made a tell

country, in allowing over s.uoo of the old
