decorated with flags and flower, the stars

which appealed strongly to tbe patriotism

seats immediately ia front of tbe altar.
The bugler of the Rodman Rifles then
sounded the reveille after which tbe choir
led by Prof. Housell, sang "My Country
'Tis of Tbee." Rev. T. W. Grafton pro
nounced the invocation followed by sing
ing by the male choir. Then came the
reading of orders by Msj H. C. Con

. . Circular Letter No. 3 Comrades:
Af8emb!ed as we are at .this moment in
one simultaneous post meeting, to com
memorate the founding of this our be
loved order, twenty-five years ago, there
are a few salient points of our history
which I deem it fitting to call to your re
membrance at this time, y
Lr. B. F. Stephenson, surgeon cf the
14th Illinois infantry, and Chaplain W.J.
RtUledge, of the earn regiment, talked,
as ttev marched under Sherman in Missis
stppi in 'C4, of the capacity for good in
an organization of veterans, acd agreed,
i spared, to work out some plan to that
epd. In March, 1866, they with ethers
met aC Springfield, Illinois, and on tbe
6th day of April, 1866. the first post was
organized at Decatur, Illinois; Comrade
Stephenson mustering in tae members,
and granting them a charter, an exact
fac simile of which 1 send ou herewith;
The first department encampment was I
held at Springfield. Illinois, July 12, '6, 1
and the first national eccampxent at In
dianapolis, Indians, November 2U of the
sama year. Comrade S A. Harl&ut was
tbe first electe i commander in-chief. Com
rade Stephenson Laving provisionally a?.ted
as such theretofore and bavins caii-id to
gether tbe first national encampment.
The violence of political strife at that
time involved the tew ordsr more or less
and cubsiantiaily destroyed its vitality,
especially in the section of the country
where it bad its origin, some of the de
partmentn being left with notbiag more
than a mere nominal existence, with
scarcely a post in active operation. This
was the situation at tbe time of the sec
ond national encampment, bell at Phila
delphia Jaa . 15, 18C3. and continued till
after the death of i;s founder. Aug. 30,
1371. His dream of an order cnclly
carrying out his noble conception seemed
only a dream never to be realized.
At this point that peerless volunteer
soldier. Login, took command, succeeded
in turn by Burnside, Devens acd Hart
ranft. Tbe nine years of service as com.
mander in chief rendered by these faith
ful and devoted comrades, now ail
mustered out forever, and the work of
the able s tt 5 officers of their administra
tions, laid deep and broad tbe founda
tions now so widely bui It upon, and
could Comrade Stepbenson have lived till
now to share with us the fruits of . his
years of toil, despondency and disappoint
ment, he would hardly recognize tbis our
gian order which when he died was ap
parebtlyso near its enl. Wisely guided
and carefully fostered, it has gathered
strength each year, and today occupies a
a position of character, beneficence and
influence second to no organization of
our time. The same conservative course
can keep it growing a few years more
despite our increasing death.. rate; but
those comrades who celebrate tbe semis
centennial anniversary, twenty five years
hence, will be few in number. It is there
fore for us who now turn with thankful
ness to the founder and to the preservers
of our order, to so conduct its aSairs, to
so guard it from dissention, and to so
keep it true ta its immortal principles,
that its influence will be felt long after
the organization has ceased to exist. In
this each comrade has bis share, each
post its measure of effort, each depart
ment its burden, to be loyally accepted,
performed and borne, with a deep sense
of tbe privilege as well as obligation that
is ours. Forward then, my comrades,
into tbe next quarter-century, with the
one purpose animating us all, to suu
farther extend our lines and to light our
camp fires yet more widely, not alone for
our Bakes, but as an inspiration to the
neW generation. Shipmate, under the
Union Jack; soldier, of whatever rank
or arm; marines, gallant as any; all
pressing on ia this tbe work of our de
clining days, elbow to elbow, stirrup to
stirrup, yard arm to yard-arm, heart to
heart, all one in the Grand Army of the

W. G. Veazet, Com'dr in Chief.
J.' H. QotrLDiNG, Adjt General.
This was followed by prayer by Rev.
J. H. 'Kerr, after which Mrs. W. B. Bar
ker sang the "Star Spangled Banner", in
a charming manner, and was followed by
an address of welcome by E. D. Sweeney
on behalf of the M. E. church. He wel
corned the G. A. R., telling them that the
H. E. church ia, and always bad been
their friend, mentioning bow the church
had sent nurses to the front and had
aided the cause with stirring appeals from
pulpits throughout the land. He then
poke of the state of affair before tke
wax, Bhowing that if It bad been precipi
tated ten jean before slave oligarthy
would have triumphed In the south, after
which be traced the Grand Army from
its beginning to the present, and showed
the aims of the organization.- Prof
Griffith rendered a vocal solo in a superb
manner, after which Col. W. S. Brackett
delivered a touching address.
He traced the Grand Army from iu
first conception by Dr. S-.evenson, sur
geon of the Fourteent Il'inois volunteers,
while on a march in the swamps of the
Mississippi, and the confiding of his
views to Chaplain Rutledge, ot the same
regiment, their first efforts in this direc
tion, after they came home and the or
ganizing of tbe first post at Decatur, 111.,
on the night of April 6. 1866. He then
spoke of the diflcuities it experienced in
its early days, of the call on Oct 1, 18G6,
for a national convention, which was
held in Indianapolis on Nov. 2 of the
samejear, and of the first national . en
campment held at Independence ball in
Philadelphia. Jan. 15,1863. about which
time Gen. John A. Logan was elected
commander-in-chief. He spoke of the
vicissitudes tbe order encountered in the
way of declining strength and being ac
cused of being a political organization
until 18G9, the clause prohibiting political
discussions at its meetings was adopted
and from this time on, tbe order "gained
in strength until today it numbered 7,000
posts and nearly a half million men. He
said that tbe G. A. R. did not keep tbe
sectional hatred existing between the
north and south, that it was done
by politicians that the Grand Army
was the first to respond with "money to
the yellow fever sufferers in the south
and those at the Charleston earthquake,
and that tbe G. A. R. bas done more to
secure pensions for deserving soldiers, and
exposed more fraudulent claims than any
other source in the country. He then
paid a glowing tribute to tbe memory of
Gen. John A. Buford. tracing his career
as a soldier of his country, and meriting
his reply to the governor of Kentuchy
when, at tbe breaking out of the war,
that gentleman told him be could have
anything be wished. He replied that be
was a captain in tbe U. S. army and that
be expected to remain one. He closed
his address by saying that the influence of
the Grand Army for loyalty and good
government was more potent than any
other in the land.
The choir Iben saog the "Star Span
gled Banner." after which Uev. Marquis
spoke of the good work done by the Pres
byterian cburcb during the war.and of the
feslingsof a boy when seeing the soldiers
leave for tbe front. Miss Lucy Coyne fa
vored those present with a charming vo
cal selection which was will received.
William Jackson followed with a few
appropriate remarks which were inter
spersed with some biti that occasioned
considerable merriment, after whish the
male quartette sang "Falling into Line,"
and -"Marching Through Georgia," the
audience joining ii the latter, and tbe ex
ercises were at a close.
Tomorrow morning the delegation of
veterans, representing Buford post ta the
Illinois state G. A. R. encampment,
eaves for Decatur. The following com
rades have been appointed: C. B.
Knox. Rev. G. W. Gue, Gen. W. A.

Aldrrmaaue Eloqnrnre In the ton-
At last night's meeting of tbe city coun
cil Aid. W.F. Schroeder attained tem
porarily though the distinction for
which be has so long a time been strug
gling. He was mayor. For the time being
be was the executive officer of the city,
in so far as the deliberations of the law
makers were concerned. Tbe alderman
whose higher political aspirations have
recently received such a crushing set
back, ascended the seat of honor with an
expression of combined satisfaction and
disappointment. He was gratified at tbe
compliment paid him, yet his face bore
tbe lines left by bis recent disappoint
ment and the apparent further realization
that bis good fortune of last evening was
only accidental and temporary. The
Seventh ward veteran, however, made a
clever presiding officer.
There were several bursts of aldermanic
eloquence last nigbt over the proposition
to reimburse Oliver Olson for money ex
pended during his recent visit to Wash
ington where he overcame the final ob
stacles to the viaduct. Aids. Evans and
Larkin made strong argument) in favor
of the promp payment of the amount,
while Aids. Corken and Kennedy were
for letting it lay over one meeting to as
certain if the railroads had done all that
they would in tbe matter of defraying
expenses. When the motion was put
the prevailing sentiment was that the
city pay the bill if the railroads refuse to
Mr. Olsen explained that the council
owed him nothing. That while he
had gone as the official representative of
the cit) .bearing an endorsement from tbe
mayor as such, be had entered into no
contract whereby he could present any
claim upon tbe city. Nevertheless he
had expended $100 over and above the
amount given him by Fred Hass for ei'
penses, and he thought it no more than
proper that this amount be paid him by
Of course, the council will not hesitate
to reimburse Mr. Olsen. and it will do it
cheerfully. And the estimate placed by
Aids Evans and Larkin last night upon
Mr. Oisen's services to the city that the
city was paying ao exceedingly small
amount in proportion to tbe good accom
plished wis perfectly proper. He has
done the city an ir.c ilculable amount of

up to 3 o'clock tbe vote was generally

In fact it is generally conceded that Mr.

'A bet of $125 on Oalweiler was made
