Vashixgtox, Sept. 23. A pleasant fea
ture of the opening exercises of the Grand
Army encampment yesterday was the pre
sentation of a pavel to Commander Palmer
by members of the staff of the department
of the Potomac. The welcoming address
on behalf of the city and District was made
by District Commissioner Douglass, and re
sponded to by General Palmer, who was
approached liefore he could sit down by
Comrade T. D. Yeager, who acted as
spokesman. In the presentation speech
Yeager told him the gavel was made of
historic wood and described its parts and
A Memento of Six Rattles.
He said: "The head of the gavel is com
posed of four pieces of wood. The section
of yellow pine formed a part of the mor
tar hnttery that fired the first gun at Fort
Sumter, April 12, 1861, at 4:30 a. m. The
section of white walnut was cut from a
tree which stotxl in the field of Gettysburg.
The piece of red cedar was cut from a tree
Guiding in the angle formed by the cross
ing at Five Forks, Va., being the point
around which the battle was fought. As
this was the battle in which your bravery
won the siiecial commendation of your com
mander it was deemed fitting that it
should le included. The piece of walnut
was cut from the body of a tree which
stood in the court house yard at Appomat
tox at the time of the surrender. The han
dle is made of two pieces, one of which was
cut from a tree which stootl on Stiodgrasf)
Hill it Chicknniauga, while the other
formed part of that glorious old ship, the
And Still Another Oavcl.
He closed with assurances of the best
wishes of himself and associates for the
commander's future happiness. Com
mander Palmer made a pat riotic reply, and
was aliont to resume his seat when he was
addressed by Mr. 15. H. Warner on lich:tli
of the citizens' committee ami presented
with a gavel. Warner's presentation and
Palmer's response were both felicitous and
evoked applause. The commander's annual
address having been iii iivored. the reports
of ollicers were the next tiling in order and
showed the order to be flourishing. The
receipts of the quartermaster general were
nearly $.1n.0oi, tie- expenses a little over

Point from Other Reports.
The judge advocate general reported a
decision that an acting assistant surgeon
V. !s. X., appointed by the navy office for
temporary service, is not eligible to niem
liership i:i the G. A. K. The adjutant gen
eral reported that there was much trouble
organizing the departments of Iouisiana
and Mississippi, but that it had leen ac
complished wit h seventy-three posts. The
Iensioit committee reported in reference to
expeditions of work in the pension office
that all is being done that can be reason
ably expected, and the report was approved.
Sympathy for the President.
Junior Vice Commander T. K. Clarkson,
of Omaha, offered the following resolution.
It was seconded by ex-President Hayes and
unanimously adopted: "Resolved, by the
mem tiers of the twenty-sixth national en
campment of the G. A. K., and through
them the 500.O0O of its members, that their
most sincere and heartfelt sympathy is
hereby extended to Comrade Benjamin
Harrison in the deep affliction which has
kept him from our midst, with the earnest
hope and prayer that his noble wife, that
true American woman, may be spared to
him and to us for even greater opportuni
ties for gfMKl."
Indianapolis Gets the Prize.
Governor Chase, of Indiana, ex-department
commander, asked the encampment
to determine the location of the encamp
ment of 1H!3, as he was compelled to leave
the city. He presented the name of Indi
anajolis. On motion of a delegate from
Ohio the encampment by acclamation ac
cepted the invitation from Indianapolis
without waiting to hear further in regard
to it, or for any other city to be named.
The date of the meeting will be fixed by
the council of administration after confer
ence with the citizens. The encampment
then adjourned for the day.
The President Will Not Participate.
The presence of President Harrison in
Washington will not alter his plans an
nounced several days ago. He will be un
able to participate in any of the exercises
of the G. A. R. encampment, as he remains,
as he did at Loon Lake, constantly at the
bedside of Mrs. Harrison. Xo work except
of the most urgent character will be at
tended to and he will not receive any callers,
except those having the most pressing busi
ness. In other words the president wants
to devote his entire time to Mrs. Harrison.
' THE BUDGET,' OF REUNIONS.
John W. Foster Talks to the Twenty-Third
Army Corps Other Meetings.
Outside the encampment hall reunions
were the order -of the day. The Twenty
third army coi-ps held one that waa largely
attended, at which Secretary John W.
Foster made the principal address. He
paid a glowing tribute to the services
of the corps and then referred feel
ingly to the absence of the president from
the festivities and its sad cause. Said he:
"He is absent from our gathering to-day,
bqt you will not forget that he was
found at the bead of his regiment, brigade
and division in the dark days of the rebell
ion, when all that was dear to us as Ameri
can citizens was at stake in the field of
"On Roard" the Kearsage.
There was an enthusiastic reunion of the
marine corps held alioard the Kearsage at
12 o'clock. Many prominent personages
were present, among whom were Vice
President Morton and Secretary of the
Navy Tracy. Vice President Morton called
the meeting to order and introduced Secre
tary Tracy, who made a rousing address,
which was interrupted frequently with
loud applause. ' At the conclusion of
Tracy's address Lieutenant Winslow, son
of Admiral Winslnw. who commanded thfl
Kearsage when she sent the Alabama to J
the bottom, made a brief address.

vention in the afternoon and re-elected

the way of prosecuting pensions free of

MORE SUSPICIOUS CASES.
The Cholera C.erm at Gotham Is Very
Wide Awake. J
New Yokk, Sept. 22. Dr. Rolierts, of the
health board, said last night that reports of
suspicious cases were constantly coming in
and that the inspectors had their hands full
investigating these cases. Two people
were removed from their homes to the re
ception hospital yesterday, but it is doubt
ful if either has cholera. They were Henry
Kngel, of 4 Kxtra place, and Mary Murphy,
of KS Cherry street. Kngel lived in the
same house with Weinhagen ami had liecn
suffering from diarrhu-a. Mary Murphy
was found suffering from fits of vomiting,
cramps and diarrluea. There is reason for
belief that she has the disease.
And Here Are Three More.
Another suspicious case reported was that
of Patrick Steward, fifty years old. a Iniiler
makerin the Brooklyn navy yard. Steward
lives at 15 Morris street. He has Iieeu suf
fering from the severe pains in the stomach,
vomits, fits anil diarrho'a. He was removed
to the Reception hospital and an inspector
was sent to the Morris street house to quar
antine it. Among other cases reported
for investigation was that of Wozzlck
Heolmer. i.i.d still another, that of Mrs.
Vincenzo Capjiolas. aged H5 years, of Xo.
104 Bayard street, who died suddenly last
night. The case s reported to the health
board as a suspicious one, and the coroner
They All Had the Scourge.
The Case of Jumes Carr. who died at
Xew Brunswick, 2s. .T., Las licen proved to
have been cholera. The result of the ex
amination of Louis Wcint.iueii. of i4 First
street, proves that he has the true Asiatic
choir-. He is still at the Reception hos
pital. Simon Knox, of the steamship State
of Nevada, who died on shiplsiard on the
1Mb. also had the Asiatic cholera. Mrs.
Gim n. at (.'amp Ixnv. is improving. There
were no fresh cases at quarantine.

stepped at a , point-where transfer to an
ambulance would be easiest and she was
gently lifted out of her bed on the car end
placed on a stretcher, which was slid into
the ambulance by four trained men nurses.
This shows how weak the patient is. Drawn
by two quiet horses the ambulance pro
ceeded by the smoothest route to the White

When the patient had been deposited in
the ambulance. Dr. Gardner and the presi

was left open to afford air, and as the am
bulance moved off the few persons present

sadly v.-r.tcl.Ii:;; the ii.tle procession as it
