in tne regular army. A man with a fund
of good stories of army me and every

the boys in this, the second meetine
of their organization. He was intro

American war he was a brigadier gen

"I can't make a speech," said the
general upon being introduced to the
assembly, "and I didn't know I was go

They are passing away not only in phy

every day that they are passing away
from the hearts and the memory and
recognition of the people.
"It is plain to my mind that this
country is proceeding to the greatest
turmoil ever seen here. I do not want
to say, in my position, that it win be a
bloody revolution, but will call it a tur

be ready to stand up and hoist the stars
and stripes between them and say, 'Go
now to your homes.'

TRIBUNAL NO. 1
IN I. 0. 0. F. HALL
Quarters Occupied in Past Are Too
Small and More Commodious
At a meeting of Tribunal No. 1, of
the Fraternal Tribunes last evening, it
was decided to remove the quarters of
the Tribunal from Carse's hall, where
the Tribunal has met since organiza
tion, and hereafter occupy quarters in
the I. O. O. F. hall in the London build
ing. The tribunal, which now has a
membership of about 500, has found
the hall in the Carse building too small
for their purposes, and have chosen
the more commodious rooms in the
Odd Fellows' hall. The next meeting of
the tribunal will be held at the new
quarters, the first Tuesday in Septem
ber. Since the Fraternal Tribunes wa3 or
ganized in Rock Island eight years ago
with a membership of 300. Carse's hall
has been used by the Tribunal for its
meeting place. The order now numbers
about 10.000 members, and the local
tribunal's membership greatly exceeds
the entire membership of the order at
