His services to- the organization
Post Department and National ever
since its beginning have been contin
uous zealous and conspicuously use
ful To those of us who served in the
army with Comrade Ketcham and have
known him thru the years since this
kind of service and accomplishment
was only what was expected the nat
ural result of the determined forceful
character which has marked his life
froin boyhood

was a boy attending school in Ger
many He returned home in the Sum
mer of 61 and was a student In Wa
bash College until the time of his en
listment After his service in the war
he completed hi college education ati
Dartmouth graduating with the class
of 67 He enlisted as a private soldier
In the 13th Ind in February 1864 and
carried a musket until December when
he was promoted to Second Lieutenant

On his return from the army he be
gan the practice of law In which he
has since continued He has twice

and Is a member ot the Eoard of Re
gents of the State Soldiers and Sailors

sition will be by all Ujo
comrades jU are pnaraf teristfl of his
ability to do things for
nis comraaes to wnicn ne believes tney
are justly entitled
It may be recalled that this State
has had but one Commander-in-Chief
In the 43 years of the existence of the
Order and in presenting Comrade
Ketcham for Commander-in-Chief the
comrades of this Department feel that
they may properly claim that Indiana
is entitled o flist consideration at this
time Htr early appreciation of the
value of the organization to the coun
try and to soldiers of the Union her
effective service in its upbuilding her
contributions to the work and her

mcrlcal importance caused It to be
conceded some half decade ago and
that she should be honored with its
Chief Executive and the lamented
Carnahan was named as its candidate
His untimely death just before the date
of the Encampment placed the badge
of mourning on their arms and until
now they have not claimed the recogni
tion then so generally considered their
We feel therefore that while we
fully appreciate the splendid comrades
who have served as Commanders-in-Chief
and those who may now be can
didates for the place wc offer and
pledge one who in strength of body
and intellect character as soldier and
citizen devotion to the Grand Army of
the Republicand the ability and earn
est desire to acrlflce his time and
means in ccopomlzing its present re
sources and building upand making
even more useful its splendid organi
zation is the peer of them all and in
every way worthy of your support

Recruiting the G A It
James H Price 123 N 50th street
Philadelphia Pa cites his case as one
deserving attention in the matter ot
recruiting the G A R He joined a
Post at Philadelphia several years after
the war and was a member for a num
ber of years Then reverses came and
he was compelled to withdraw which
he did by paying his dues and getting
a transfer card which he held was
good until he could join another Post
He had financial troubles and remained
out of the Order for several years and
when he applied for readmisslon he
was told that he must pay 100 This
would entitle him to a share in the
benefit fund but he was willing to for
feit that on condition of being readmit
ted He had the money to pay it but
did not think it right to be pracically
fined for returning to the Order It is
true that some of the Posts which have
the benefit feature refuse to admit a
comrade over a certain age and this
stands in the way of their recruiting
He thinks that this is poor policy and
that they should admit members if they
are willing to relinquish all rights to
the share in the fund

When the civil war was over Dr Reed

concerning the outcome of the war I
am glad that I do not have to live In
a divided country

No record exists in the archives of
the State of Missouri- of her sons who
supported the Union and fought to
maintain her in It The Grand Army
of the Republic has been moving to
have this inglorious omission repaired
and a step In that direction has been
taken Dan Fraser Thomson Chief
Clerk of the Adjutant Generals Office
of Missouri was given a small appro
priation by the last session of the Leg
islature and went to Washington to
study the records on file in the Office
of the Adjutant General of the Army
He came to Washington last March
and worked until May copying the
names of the commissioned officers the
time and place of enrollment time and
place of order Into service and date of
relief from service also the number of
non commissioned officers and men and
approximately the number of days In
actual service shown by the rolls of all
the State organizations which were on
the pay roll of the Government This
makes a good beginning and undoubt
edly the Department of Missouri G A
R will see that it is followed up until
a complete record Is made for the State
of all that Missourians did In the great
war for the maintenance of the Union
Civil War Photographs
from the famous collection of 7000 photographic negatives made by Mat hew Bradt and xexaxder Gaedxeh
Tourists travel hundreds of miles and spend hundreds of dollars to look upon the sites of tho famous battlefields of tho
Civil War and then they see the situation only as it appears today and not as it was when tho famous events were be
ing enacted How many a veteran would rejoice to go back once more to those localities where the roar of cannon and
musketry resounded m his ears over forty years ago This Album makes this well nigh possible and these famous
photographs take the precedence of a visit today since along with the natural localities one sees the great actors tho
1 resident and the armies as they moved over these localities The whole action and movement live once again before
the eye making the situation
Hundreds of letters of strong commendation from military and educational authorities have been received which are of
convincing importance to all svho have any interest in the history of the great Civil strife as tho following
J W Cheney Librarian War Department Washington says
