bas expressed bis willingness to be re

deem It proper to tendor him a reception,
nut is rather disinclined to have any dem

division of the Grand Army of the Rpubllc
will take any aotive measures toward giviug
a distinct reception, but the Frank Blair
Post and one or two other commanderies
are making preparations to receive
the retiring General iu a befitting
manner. No definite plans bave yet
been fixed upon, but It is probable he will

Southern hotel, where an informal recep

banquet will be tendered him by tbe mem

than probable tbat the Commercltl Club
will have tbe honor of his presence at one
