Anna Eva Fay's mysterious performance
at the flrand th wpflt ha Rtlrrpil im th
, mystery-loving public. All who have wlt
. nested the performance and the rest who
have heard about It from their friends are
.laying their heads togethej and endeavor
ing to fit some explanation to what seems
to be unexplalnable. Every night this week
- Miss. Fay has called out the names' of fifty
people or more in the audience and accu-
a rainy reaa questions wmcn uiey nau wni
: ten co slips of paper. One, of the most ln-
terestcd spectators the other night was
Chief Powell. whose hair suddenly raised
oa his head when Miss Fay announced that
eome one whose name she could not quite
catch .had. askYd "who murdered Ida Geb
haxd." Although no one acknowledged hav
ing 'written the question, several admitted
they were thinking- about it and wishing
some one would askMiss Fay that very
. question. When no one . claimed the ques
tion. Miss . Fay continued, and told of the
' murdsr of the little . girl 'In July, saying
r that several people had been arrested, but
. .that the: right one had not.'been apprehend-
ed. The little woman announced that, with
more time, t he believed she could give the
name of the murderer.. She was apparently
In a. hlghlvHcdted nervous condition,. and
uddenly ehouted the name " 'Charles T.,"
And then, said the rest of the name was a
blur to her. The audience i was Etill as tne
grave while, this was going on, but the little
woman cut short tha revelation with the
remark that the little girl' had been foully
assaulted, ana that the murderer snouta
not be permitted to live, She thought the
criminal might be captured without much
effort, if the police would make a sincere
effort. After the show she said she had
never heard of the case until the question
came to her while blindfolded on the stage.
In vnlalnlnr i f t Arwarrl hoot she some
times caught questions that no one had
.written, Mlsa Fay said that when some one
was thinking Intently of a question to ask
.her. It seemed to come to her. She claimed
that to reveal the murderer of Ida Geb
hard would, not be" a more surprising act
on her part than many others in w hlch she
has been ruccessfuL She is reasonably cer
tain, she says, that people taking her ad
vice given in her answers, when she is in
touch with her audience; will find that she
has not misled them: -
The audience last night was highly enter
tained with some of her answers. In one
instance a man in a box wrote asking how
hot it was yesterday. He signed a fictitious
name and afterward destroyed the question,
'-but began thinking about it, and suddenly
Miss Fay caught the question without get
tin? the man's name, but she described him
-nd .told where : he , was sitting with a box
.prty; and the questioner then acknowl-;
edgeC-. . .
Mls3 Fay will be at the Grand for two
more performances only to-night end to
morrow night. Miss Fay says it is Impossi
ble for her to give matinees, as it takes all
.her time-during the day to answer the let

Forty-Six Royalists, Convicted of Con

SAX.' FRANCISCO, Cal.. Sept. llThe
steamer Australia, .arrived to-day - from
Honolulu, bringing the following advices to
the Associated I'ress under date of Sept. 5:
Forty-cne cases of cholera have been re
ported to date, with thirty-five deaths. The
disease attacks only the natives. Every ef
fort is., being1? made to stamp It out. . No
island steamers are allo-Ared to leave port
without first remaining in quarantine for
five days. Passengers must undergo the
same ordeal. The Australia leaves to-day
for San Francisco, with cabin passengers
only. The cholera, according to (he gen
eral theb'ry7:-was brought to Honolulu by
the steamer Belglc, whlclf arrived on Aug.
9. with ZZi Chinese Immigrants on board.
The vessel had a' clean bill of health, but,
following the. custom, the Chinese were
placed in quarantine. On Aug. 18 it was
learned that three of the immigrants had
died,-- two from bowel complaint and the
others from exhaustion.' As soon as it was
publicly . announced that a death bad oc
curred at the quarantine station, people be
came alarmed and declared that Asiatic
cholera, had broken out among the Chinese
immigrants. Physicians made a careful ex
amination v of the first cases and declared
that it was not cholera. More cases broke
out soon, ' however,, and this Intensified the
alarm. By this time the disease was de
clared to be genuine Asiatic cholera. It was
decided .to inaugurate a system of house to
house inspection r. and other1 precautionary
measures, were adopted to Insure, if possi
ble, the -security "of -the-community. ..No
cases 'developed among the Chinese at the
quarantine station after Aug. 16, and the
Immigrants have been since released.
Up to Aug. 23 five cases of cholera' had
developed at Honolulu with four deaths.
On the. evening of the 24th another case
was .reported. For five days there were no
cases reported, and people became easier,
believing that the disease bad been stamped
out. But it was only a respite. On the 30th
nine cases were reported, five of which
proved fatal. One of 'the cases was a sea
man on the' Bennington named W. II.
Goedel. He was taken ill while on board
the vessel -and lived but a short time. He
had .bathed in the haibor. and it is thought
he contracted the disease in this manner.
On the following two days four cases were
reported. On the third seven cases devel
oped. With the exception of . the Ben
nington sailor, the scourge has attacked
only natives. ;
The chief difficulty in dealing with the
cholera hero is the ignorance and unclean
habits of . the natives and Chinese. The
natives, . of .course, have no conception of
the nature of the disease, its origin or the
proper treatment cf it. In this, as in all
other respects, they are children and must
be treated accordingly. The physieiansare
gradually locating- the germ centers, tut
new cases .arise in unexpected quarters,
and there has not been a sufficient number
of facts to enable any safe generalization to
be made.
- The Council of State held a meeting yes
terday afternoon and evening, and after
appropriating $10,000 for expenses incurred
by the Board of Health, the matter of
pardoning political prisoners came up for
consideration. The executive recommended
that Carl Wldemann. the four Lane boys,
Junius Kaao, Joe Widdlefleld and thirty
nine others be pardoned. The Council
adopted the recommendation. At the same
meeting the ex-Queen was pardoned also,
and the others will be liberated as soon as
the pardons arc made out.
Gladstone Opposed to Bimetallism.
' LONDON. Sept. 12. Replying to an invi
tation extended to him by Mr. George
Peel, secretary of the Gold Standard Asso
ciation and son of Viscount Peel, formerly
Speaker of the House . of Commons, to ex
press his views7 on "the question of bimetal
lism, Mr. Gladstone writes that he has
not altered-hb opinions which he expressed
In Parliament two 'and a half years ago.
He , adds that, he'regards the bimetallic
schemes as passing, humors,, doomed to
nullity and disappointment.' lie is con
vinced, he says, that if London stands firm
for the gold standard no power that bi
metallism commands or Is likely to en
list will be able to overcome it. Mr. Glad
stone ad-ls'that he regrets that age and
its disabilities .prevent his active partici
pation in the controversy. .

Hawaiian government a franchise for a
cable line, between the Hawaiian .Ulands
and California, arrived in-Washington yes
terday from "California. He went from here

waii,, tp explain that at an early date I will
submit a proposition for establishing cable
communication between San Francisco and
Honolulu, - and ' to - ask for aid frm'" the
United States government. At present I am
on my way to visit my family, but I ex
pect to return to Washington within two
months. - As soon as Congress meets a
charter will be asked for by a company of
American capitalists,,. to whom I shall as
sign my concession from Hawaii, nnd, if
sufficient assistance be granted by tl.a gov
ernment., to make it feasible, to construct
and. maintain the cable line, work wilhte
commenced at once. I have been premised
private subscriptions to stock in the com
pany Xo the amount of a million dr.iiars, and
hope that our government will grant a
yearly subsidy which.- In-connection with
that granted by Hawaii, will enable us to
raise tht money necessary to carry out the
'project.- As soon as details aic r.ec?dd on
they will be made public, and every cpicr
tunlty be given for scrutiny and ir.vrst'ga

No Withdrawal of Gold.
WASHINGTON.' Sept. 12.-So far as re
ported to the Treasury Department there
were no withdrawals of gold to-day at
New York, nor were there any deposits
of gold except In the regular course of
business. The true amount of the reserve
at the close of business was J39,ul2,X. At
Chicago there- was a deposit of J7;.000 in
gold in exchange for small notes, and the
balance of the net gain of HOW was ob
tained at the assay office.
The demand for Columbian half dollars
in exchange for gold at the subtreasuries
of the United States, except San Fran
cisco, continues without abatement. At the
present time there remains unsold only
J322.0OU. These halve are perfectly new,
having never been In circulation, and have
the same legal tender and redemption
qualities as other half-dollar pieces.-

letters of living light upon their ample
folds, as they float over the sea and over
the land, those words dear to every Amer
ican heart, "Union and liberty, now .and

And why not? What is left for you anl
me to cavil about, far less to fight about?
When Hamilton and Madison agreed in
supporting a Constitution wholly acceptable
to neither of them, they compromised some
differences and they left some other differ
ences open to double construction; and,
among these latter was the exact relation
of . the States to , the general government.
The institution of African slavery, with its
irreconcilable conditions, got between lhe
North and the South, and. But I am not
here to recite the history of the United
Mtates. . You .know what happened as well
as I do, and we all know that there does
not remain a shred of those old Issues to
divide us. There is not a Southern man to
day who would recall slavery If he could.
There Is not a Southern man to-day who
would lightly brook the effort of a State
to wlthdaw from the Union. Slavery is
gone. Secession is dead. The Union, with
its system of statehood still Intact, sur
vives, and with it a power and glory among
men passing the dreams of the- fathers of
the Republic. You and I may fold our arms
and go to sleep; leaving to younger men tr
hold and defend a property ten-fold greater
than that received by us, its ownership un
clouded and Its title-deeds recorded in
heaven.
It is, therefore, with a kind of exultation
that I fling open the gates of this gateway
to the South. I bid you welcome in the
name of the people whose voice is the voice
of God. You came, and we resisted you;
you come, and we greet you, for times
change and men change with them. You
will find here scarcely a sign of the battle;
not a reminiscence of its passions. Grim-visaged-
war has smoothed his wrinkled
front, and whichever way you turn on
either side, deepening- as you advance
across the Chaplin hills, where Jackson
fell, to Stone'a river, where Rosy fought
and on to Chattanooga and Chickamauga
and over Missionary Ridge and down by
Resaca and Kennesaw and Allatoona, where
Corse "held the fort." as a second time you

valor and travail, only the magnanimous
spirit of dead heroes, with Grant and Sher
man, and Thomas and Mcpherson and Lo
gan looking down from the happy stars as
if. repeating the. words of the master,
"Charity for all malice toward none.
We, too. have our graves; we, too, had

psalmist's prophecy of peace:

Peace in the -woodland and the lonely glen,

"Peace in the crowded town;
Peace in a thousand fields of waving grain;
Peace in the highway and the flow'ry lane,
Peace o'er the wind-swept down.

Peace where the scholar thinks, the hunter

And all our hearts!"
AN AFFECTING SCENE. ..
It Is impossible to describe the scene
that followed Mr. Watterson's address. The
speaker himself was overcome with emo
tion and left the front of the stage. Men
rose in their seats and not only cheered by
turns, hugged each other and threw hats,
fans and handkerchiefs into the air. Mrs.
John A, Logan was seated a short distance
back of the commander-in-chiefs stand,
and as Mr. Watterson walked away with
tears coursing down his cheeks, General
Lawier presented him to Mrs. Logan.
Neither could speak' and the white-haired,
motherly-looking lady took his hand in both
of hers and when she found her voice, said:
"I am glad I have been permitted to live
to hear your speech." That was all she could
say and she sat down and wept. Mr. Wat
terson and Past Commander-ln-chkf War
ner then greeted each other and sat down
together. This caused another "burst of ap
plause almost as great as the first, and it
was nearly five minutes before quiet was. re
stored. . -
Past Commander-in-chief Warner, of Kan
sas City, was enthusiastically cheered as
he stepped forward to deliver the response
to Mr. Watterson' address, which he did
lr as forcible a manner as had Mr. Watter
son. He said:
Colonel Wattefson anl Citizens of Louis
villeOur annual pilgrimage has brought
U3 to your beautiful citv to hold our Na
tional Encampment. You have received us
as though we were the princes of the earth.
Never, did I realize the poverty of speech as
I realize it now, in attempting to convey
to you . what I know to be the heartfelt
thanks of these veterans and myself for
your royal reception and unstinted hospi
tality. You possess the rare faculty, peculiar
to the Southern people, of making a strang
er within your gates feel that he is at
home and that he is in the house of his
friends. Foremost among those to welcome
the veteran of the blue to the common
wealth of Kentucky, the State that gave to
the Nation that great commoner, Henry
Clay, and that greatest of Americans. Abra
ham IJncoln. have been the veterans who
wore the gray.
At the close of General Warner's ad
dress. Commander Lawier said he took
great pleasure in Introducing James Whit
comb Riley, the Hoosier poet. Mr. RlleV
then read an original poem.
, Mr. ni'ley Poem nnd Preface.
In attempting any answer to the In
vitation to prepare a fitting poem, for an
occasion so memorable in our history as
the present, the writer has felt that he
coufl only trust to the .long prior in
spiration of another that inspiration
evoked by the once alas! exact opposite
of the sectional feelings and conditions of
to-day. Then, high above the havoc of
civil war, rang out "The Battle Hymn of
the Republic:" Now, in faintest echo, yet
most grateful fervor, is offered:
A PEACE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC.
(Louisville, Ky., Sept. 12. 189G: 29th En
- oampment G. A. It.)
There's a voice across the Nation like a
mighty ocean hall.
Borne up from out the southward as the
seas before the gale;
Its breath is in th streaming flag and In
the flying sail
As vie go sailing on.
Tis a voice that we remember ere Its sum
mons soothed as now
When it rang in battle challenge, and wc
answered vow with vow
With. roar cf gun and hiss of sword and
crash of prow and prow.
As we went sailing on.
Our hope sank, even as we saw the sun sink
faint and far
The Ship of State went groping through the
blinding smoke of war
Through blackest midnight lurching, all
uncheered of moon or star.
Yet sailing sailing on.
As One who spake the dead awake, with
life Wood leaping warm
Who walked the troubled waters, all un
scathed. In mortal form
We felt our Pilot's presence with His hand
upon the storm.
As we went sailing on.
O voice of passion lulled, to peace, this
dawning of to-day
O voices twain now blent as one, ye sing all
fears away,
Since foe and foe are friends, and lo! the
Lord as glad as they
He sends us sailing on. '
When Mr. Riley concluded, Commander
Lawier said the comrades had decided to
honor Past Commander Gen. John Palmer,
of Albany, N. Y., by presenting him with a
tcen of their regard for the faithful per
formance of his duty while he was com
mander. Judge Cochran would formally pre
sent the token. The token was a solid silver
tea set. Judge Cochran ' spoke briefly anl
to the poinL He was sure the boys could
not have presentel the gift to any one more
deserving. In accepting the present General
Palmer spoke feelingly. '! can scarcely find
words to express my gratitude to you, my
comrades." he said. "T Shall always keep
it and shall always cher;sh It as the most
precious of all my possessions."
The next feature on the preliminary pro
gramme was the presentation of a gavel
made of gold, silver and copper, and studded
with diamonds, rubies and sapphires to
Commander Lawier. It was presented him by
Senior Vice Commander 0"Leary, of Mon
tana, in behalf of the Montana division. It
was given because General Lawier was the
first commander-in-chief who ever visited
the Montana porfts. -
Commander Lawier' Address.
As soon as the preliminary programm
was over Commander Lawier directed all
persons not members of the Grand Army to
withdraw from the hall, as it was to be a
secret meeting. When all such had gone
out General Lawier directed the Rev. T. H.
Haggerty, "of St. Louis, the national chap
lain, to Invoke the blessing of the Deity.
Commander Lawier then delivered his an
nual address, whlchwaa as follows:
Comrades I take great pleasure in calling
to order the twenty-ninth National Encamp
ment of the Grand Army of the Republic.
We meet for the first time south of the
Ohio river, in this beatuiful city of Louis
ville, not as we did thirty-four years ago
then we were ordered here, but now we
come because we are invited by all its citi
zens to accept Jhelr hospitality and receive
a royal and -loyal welcome to old Kentucky
and the new South: What memories of the
rast rise before us as we stand here and
think of the great men born on Kentucky
soil. But the one whose memory is hon
ored most by the people of this great Re
public Is the name of him who by a stroke
of his pen and the power of your bayonets
struck the shackles from four millions of
slaves Abraham Lincoln.
One year ago, at J Pittsburg, I entered
upon the duties of the omce to which I had
been elected, and located tho headquarters
at Rockford, 111. The. experiment of hav
ing both the adjutant-general and the quartermaster-general
at" headquarters has
proven very satisfactory.. Requisitions are
filled immediately on -receipt of same. Re
sides the saving of: time there is a saving
of postage and correspondence which-, would
be necessary if the two offices were sta
tioned at different points. I was very for
tunate in being able to. appoint as my adjutant-general
a man who has proven him
self to be prompt, thorough, efficient and
obliging, and the name of C. C. Jones will
appear In the future" records of this great
organization as one of its best adjutants
general. Both he-and - the quartermaster
general. J. W. Burst,, have labored hard
during the year to' make the administration
of affairs of the Grand Army a success.
At once, calls for'the' presence of the commander-in-chief
to attend reunions, camp
fires, dedication of.monuments and installa
tion of post officers were received, and I
accepted all that T' Was able to reach. I
am not going to weary you with a history
of my travels, but will say, briefly, one of
my first visits was to Petersburg, 111., to
attend the unveiling of .a. monument to the
founder of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic, Major. B..F. .Stevenson, who builaed
"better than he knew." It is- a simple
shaft. In a beautiful spot, and was erected
bv the comrades of the Department of Illi
nois. I had the pleasure to receive it in
your behalf, from Department Commnder
H. H. McDowell." as gift frorn that
partrr.ent to the Grand Army of the Re

VISITED MANY DEPARTMENTS.
The first department encampment -I at
tended was held at , Brattleboro, Vt., on
Jan. SO and 31, and the last one was held
at Salt Lake City, U. T., June 25 and 26. I
tried to reach every J department encamp
ment while In session-rEast, West, North
and South. Sometimes- two departments
wojdd arrange their meetings for the same
date. Of course, that prevented my reach
ing all. However, I succeeded1 In attending
thirty-eight out -of r the forty-five depart
ments while they ': were' holding their an
nual encampments, and have attended
meetings in every State and Territory in
the United States except two Florida and
Arizona. I have traveled about thirty-six
thousand miles during the year. While the
work has been . hard,- yet the deep, fervent
spirit of fraternity shown me by comrades
everywhere, and the loyal demonstrations
of the people-in" every department visited,
has made the year'swork one of the pleas
antest and" bappiesV'Wm life. Veneration
and esteem for the comrades and love for
the "old flag" was manifested everywhere,
and through this beautiful Southland from
nearly every schoolhouse and public build
ing in the cities where the department en
campments were held "Old Glory" was fly
ing. That you may fully understand the con
dition of Rains and losses for .the- year
past I append the following recapitulation:

Considering the fact that many of our
comrades are poor, and owing to business
depression many having been out of
employment, and added XO this the fact that
many are not able to atter-i'. post meet
ings by reason of 'their lntirmities and
have allowed themselves do , be suspended
for nonpayment of due?, ouv membership
has kept up wonderfully well. . ith the
increased prosperity whlcJi we are sure to
have I see no' reasonwhy very many of
the fifty thousand who are on the sus
pended list may not take their places again
as active working members. I have urged
all posts to appoint a- special committee
on reinstatement to .call on every sus
pended comrade and 'settle with him in
some way and get him back Into our ranks.
In many departments I heard the delegates
talking about establishing picket posts, and
believing that consolidation of many of
the smaller posts must soon , take place, I
recommend that the committee on rules and
regulations be instructed to prepare a plan
of organization and - report . the same to
the next National Encampment, by which
this question of consolidation and the es
tablishment of picket st! may be uni
form and la accordance with rales and
regulation?. - -' '' --. -
THE PENSION" QUESTION.
This Is a question that e, as an organi
zation, fell a deep-interest in. We know
that all the legislation enacted by Congress
in the interest of the old .soldier, has been
brought about by or through the influence
of this great, pow'erful organization the
Grand Army of the Republic and those of
us who are more fortunate physically than
others propose to. keep' it up' just as long
as we live. And while we are not asking
for any new pension legislation we do ask
and insist that when a law 13 pass-d by
Congress that Its provisions as intended
by them shall be carried out und not mis
construed and misapplied by any man or
set of men of any party who may be In
power. I am not a lawyer, but I know
the verdict of any court of ldyal ir.cn would
be that after a man has furnished the
proofs and has been granted a pension,
that pension cannot be taken rv,ay from
him without due process-of law. I know
this Is being done, however, bll over tne
land.' for I have seen the .vidences of it in
every department In which I have botn
pensions reduced from $12 to fs, &nd nom
t8 to $8, and many cut off entire. Then
again, a man who applied for a, pension, two
and three years ago will receive a notice
that his claim is rejected, then notified
that his case is reopened and allowed, tut
only from the time of . reopening, thus
cheating a worthy man out of Vjt; or so.
Many of our comrades thus dealt with are
not able to bring suit to test the constitu
tionality of this sort cf ruling of a Pen
sion Commissioner. I would, therefore,
recommend that the incoming counsel of
administration be empowered to select a
case and prosecute the same. It has been
the custom of enccmpments to appomt a
committee to prepare some testimonial for
the retiring commander-in-chief. I recom
mend that no such committee, be .ap
pointed this year, but that this money be
used In making a test case a to the con
stitutionality of the act of June Z7, 18W.
This Soldiers' and Sailors' day Is becom
ing more sacred to' us and to the Ameri
can 'people: for each year our ranks are
thinner, and there are mor 'mounds to
cover with flowers and the '"old flag." I
think it safe to say that the day-was more
generally observed this year than ever
before, and especially through the South.
By the generous contributions of the Wom
an's Relief Corps, the Sons of Veterans
and our posts ofthe Grand Army of the
Republic, we have been able to place a
flag on every grave 'in the eighty-one na
tional cemeteries, and we have also setr"
In money to help our comrades in he
South defray the expenses of properly ob
serving Memorial day in these cemeteries.
This work has been cheerfully performed
by our comrades scattered through the
South, and in some places' It has been quite
burdensome to them; and believing that
this beautiful observance of the day should
live as long as the Republic lives, and
that there is no place from which pa
triotism and love for country and the old
flag can be so well taught as from these
national cemeteries, and as the govern
ment, through the War Department, has
the care of these cemeteries, I recommend
that the commander-in-chief who shall be
elected here shall appoint a committee of
three, to memorialize Congress to Include
in their appropriation for the care of these
cemeteries a sum sufficient to defray the
expense of holding Memorial day services
at each of them. The expenditures can be
made through the Quartermaster-general's
department of the army.
Comrades. let us see to it that the day
is kept as a Memorial day; let us denounce
in our own communities any desecration
hf the day. such as races and games, ex
cursions, balls and other amusements of
which there is too much on this day the
tendency is to forget the objects of its ob
servance and make it a day of pleasure
and recreation. -. ,-;
WOMAN'S RELIEF CORPS.
. This grand organlzatidaV'o'ur auxiliary,
composed of the loyal 'women of this coun
try, is doing a noble, patriotic work every
where.. During the past year, under
the leadership of that noble woman
from my own State, Mrs Emma R.
Wallace, it has done - much to aid
us in our work teaching patriotism to
the children, placing the flag on our
schooihouses, caring for' our comrades and
their families when In need, looking after
the comfort of the "boys" In the soldiers
homes: in fact working all along the line
with us and for us. In Its membership of
nearly 150.COO are found many of the bright
est and best - women of the land. In my
visits to the department encampments I
have deemed it a pleasuro to visit their
conventions, and in your name bid them
God speed n all tholr undertakings. And
right here, comrades, Jet me say to you,
with all praise for the work of all other
organizations, from my experience in mak
ing the "grand rounds' and coming in
contact with all, I believe that if there
were fewer organizations and all working
along the same line there would be better
results and more accomplished for the
veterans of the war. In unity there
is strength. . I believe. Judging from
what I ha-e seen, that there ought
to be but. one- soldiers and sailors'
organization (and that ." the Grand
Army), one woman's, organization and
the Sons of Veterans, these three all work
ing togethervwill accomplish more than we
can if. we scatter into so many different
orders. ....
I have had the loyal support "of this earn
est and Intelligent, body of young men, and
It has been my pleasure to. visit many of
their camps, and I am more than ever im
pressed that the organization o camps of
the Sons of Veterans is a work the Grand
Army of the Republic should encourage
more than they have in the past. They are
our boys, and we can't do too much for
them. They don't: ask to.be a part of the
Grand Army,, for they know there can
never be bilt.bne Grand Army in our time,
but they want, our advice and encourage
ment, and we all know that should the oc
casion ever require it, they will be as true
to "Old Glory" and Its principles as were
the fathers whose records they are so justly
proud of.
On assuming command I found that La
fayette Post, No. 140,. of New York, had
commenced a work thp.t we all believe in,
and I placed Comrade, E. L. Zalinski, of
that post, in charge of the military In
struction in public schools. Having to leave
the country on government work, he re
signed. I then appointed Comrade George
W. Wingate as special aid In charge of this
work. He has devoted much time and his
own money in this direction, and I would
ask every comrade to read his excellent re
port on this subject. You will find it with
the other published reports, and it is "very
interesting. I am more than ever im
pressed that the move was one in the right
direction. I recommend the continuation
of this work and trust that my successor
may be so fortunate as to secure the serv
ices of as able a comrade as Comrade
George W. Wingate, whom I desire to thank
personally for his loyalty and devotion to
this work.
' SCHOOL TEXT-BOOKS, ETC.
The Department of Pennsylvania had
started the good work of examining the his
tories which are used in our public schools
so well that I published their work entire,
and called attention to It in circular No. 2,
Issued by these headquarters, " and with
good results in almost even' department. I
wish you could read the accounts of the
work as received by. us. .They show that
patriotism . and love of, country burns
brightly An .every State in this Union, and
the .watch-fires , of liberty and right are
kept blazing through the work of the Grand
Army.
On my first visit to Washington, D. C,
(when I did not see the President) my heart
was pained as I listened to the recital of
the sufferings of our comrades, and widows
and orphans of our late comrades, caused
by their dismissal from the departments,
and their belief In the power of our great
organization to again restore them to places
from which they claim they were dropped
without cause, convinced me that we ought
to have a special committee to look after
and belp them.- I do, therefore, recommend
that my successor be empowered to appoint
a committee of three for this work.
And now, comrades. I thank you for the
high honor which you conferred upon me
cne year ago, and as I go down the hill of
time I will always remember with pride and
gratitude the pleasure of this year's serv
vice; and when I take my sat at the close
of this encampment simply as -a member of
It, I hope that you will feel that-1 have

thank all my personal staff iind all the offi
cers of this encampment for their faithful
ness and fidelity to duty, and especially
Senior Vice , Commander-in-chief A. P.
Burchileld and Junior Vice Commander-in-Chief
Charles H. Shute, who have support
ed me so loyally, and who have performed
so well every duty required.
Comrades, as we leave this place at the
close of this encampment, let us feel like
going home to those less favored than we
who are permitted to come here, filled with
agreat love for .our grand organization and
urge all to Join, and labor with us in the
grand work of fraternity, charity and, loy
alty. Comrades of this mighty fellowship,
with more to bind us than mere word or
grip "
Let us dedicate ourselves to liberty again.
To holy memories of duties done.
To firm resolves in duties Just begun;
To ever stand by comrades in distress,
To aid the widow and the fatherless;
To readiness, if e'er our country calls.
To take our war-worn saber from the walls
And strike again, as we have struck before.
For that dear flag our fallen comrades bore.

departments not answering the questions
addressed to them, show that in many de
partments there has b?en legislatives enact
ments making it compulsory on u'hool
boards to furnish the schools with the stars

the movement. In the forty-nve districts

ever, had been very satisfactory. Relative
ly, it had been greatest in th Eastern and
Middle States. In New York city Vhere are

Governor Tlinyer Sot Hooted.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 12. Sensational
reports have been sent out about Gov.
John M. Thayer, of Nebraska, being hooted
oft the stage at the Phoenix Hill campflre
last night. Governor Thayer complimented
President Cleveland ' for maintaining law
and order during the Chicago riot and de
nounced Governor Altgeld and Eugene V.
Debs in very severe terms. His denuncia
tion of Anarchists was very severe, and
there were cries for McKlnley and others.
When the interruption continued, Congress
man Evans dismissed the meeting, as the
programme was about completed. . Thayer
was not hooted oft the platform, but he
closed abruptly by saying: "I thank all
the respectable people in the audience for
the polite attention they have accorded me.
For the disrespectful people I have nothing
but contempt."
THE IVOMEX'S SOCIETIES.
Injunction Ajcatnst the Relief Corps
The Lndles Circle.
LOUISVILLE, Sept. 12.-Jude Edwards
to-day granted 'Ada F. Clark, of Canton,
O., a temporary restraining order cgainst
the following officers of the Woman's Re
lief Corps, enjoining them from preventing
her from sitting and voting In the conven
tion; Emma R. Wallace, Helen S. Mor
rison, Lizzie 'It. Herrlck, Armilla A- Chen
ny, Jennie Bross, S. Agnes Parker, Agnes
Hltt. Sarah C. Mink, Sarah K. Phillips. Lo

E. Minot, Louise B. Bobbins, Florence Bar
ker, Sarah E. Fuller and Anna E. Witten
meyer. Judge EJwards will hear the case
to-morrow and decide as to whether the in
junction is to be made perpetual. The
plaintiff says that under the rules of the
organization a member who had been a
president of a local corps had a rlht to
vote in the department .conventions and
also In national conventions. She says she
was president of the Canton corps, anl bas
since been a member in good standing.
Notwithstanding this she charges that she
has been notified by letter that she is not
entitled to a vote In the convention and
urged to remain away. She has also been
charged as not being a member In gcod
standing, which, she charges, is false. Mrs.
General Sherwood, of Canton, while not
among the national officers- enjoined, is
considered a' leader of (he opposition to
Mrs. Clark. These two ladles hail previ
ously had a long fight in the Department
Of Ohio.
The Woman's Relief Corps met to-day at
Library Hall, Mrs. President Wallace pre
siding. The exercises were opened with sa
lutes, flag drills and tableaux. In the cur
riculum of. patriotic teachings. The open
ing session was devoted to welcome ad
dresses and responses and to the hearing of
the annual reports of the national officers,
Fro'm the information furnished in the an
nual reports of the thirteenth r.ational con
vention it is evident that that organization
is in a prosperous condition. Total mem
bership at tho present time, according to
the report, is 110,774, or a total gain of
35,636 members over last vear. The total
number cf corps is given in the report as
3.141, or a net gain of thirty-seven during
the year. The amount expended In relief
is JS4.S53. The total amount expended dur
ing the year, including relief anl current
expenses, was I1S3.329, while the total
amount of relief furnished since its organ
ization Is $1.210.KKL Continuing, the report
says: "Notwithstanding the prostration of
business and cry of 'hard times' . throu3h
out our land, . the closing of another year
shows the finances of our order to be In a
prosperous and - encouraging condition.
True, we cannot report as large a surplus
as we wish we might, yet feel there are
good and sufficient reasons therefor. The
tact Is, however, noted that the revenue
from sale of supplies has decreased during
the past year f 1,814 from. that of the" pre
vious one. This is surely owing to above
general conditions, and not to lack of in
terest or enthusiasm throughout our order.
This is proven by the fact that the amount
received for per capita iitx has incread
$237 during the same period." Regarding
the National Woman's Relief Corps Home
at Madison, ., the report 5ays: "Since the
opening of the home ninety-four applicants
have been approved, nine have died before
coming to the home, seventy-two havj; ar
rived and been care! for, fifty-two were
present during the past year and forty
thrte Inmates are now at the home.
The Ladies' Circle of the G. A. R. met
at the Board of Trade to-day, with Mrs.
President Gunlock presiding. Its opening
session was also devoted to hcaring.annual
reports, which showed increased member
ship and good condition generally. -The
floral designs were appropriate and the
music and opening exerclse3 were interest
ing in welcome . addresses and response.
The ladies of the circle, however, showed
no general disposition to-day to unite with
the Woman's Relief Corps. It has been ar
gued that the federal and Confederate vet
erans were united on everything at this
anniversary, and that the two organiza
tions of the ladles should get together, but
they seem to be Inclined to flht it out,
and their two national conventions will
continue during the week with considerable
rivalry. Both had open sessions this morn
ing, as the crowti got into the halls, but
hereafter the password will be required.

It Took a Clenn Score to Win In AH
bat One of Yrsterdny's Events
Team Event Declared Off. '
The first amateur tournament of the lim
ited Gun Club of IndUnapolbr closed with
yesterday's contests. The meeting had last
ed three days, arid the minigers state that It
was the most successful of any tournament
ever held in this city, . Considering the fact
that there were tournaments In Detroit and
' several other cities at the Fame time.the at
tendance here was very satisfactory, and
the general results warrant the continuance
of the meetings.
There was really not much sensational
rhootlng done yesterday, although some
good records wea-e made. A great manyf
the sportsmen from oui of , the city left
Wedresday' night, so . that mos of ht
contests yesterday were between members
of the club. The club had offered a hand
some' cup, valued al $100, emblematic of
the club championship of Indiana. . Ken
tucky, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois, tp be
competed for annually on the grounds of
the Limited Gun Club. This trophy --wis
to have been competed for by teams of "four
from organized clubs cf the, States' named.
There were four prizes, the frst consisting
of the trophy and $10 In money; sscond.
$20; third, $10, and fourth. $10. There were
to be one hundred targets to each teacj,
knowr traps, unknown angles and no han
dicap. Therefore considerable disappoint
ment was manifested when It 'was learned
that there were not enough clubs represent
ed to warrant the event takiug place. . In
stead, four teams were picked from the
membership of tne Indianapolis club. The
teams were as fellows: No. 1. Messrs.
Raymond, Brltton, Cooper and Moore; No.
2, Messrs. Dando, Comstock. Tutewiler and
Tripp: No. 3. Messrs. Mumma, Polster,
Lock wood and Parry; No. 4, Messrs. Rlke,
Wildack, Robinson and fowniend. Team
No. 2 took first place, breaking fc3 out of
the lOd targets. Teams No. 1 and 4 each,
broke 81 targets and No. 3 M. The trophy
will be kept by the club until next year,
