SIB O-vnwerclal Btrwt. nl — v THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 22, 1892. THE G.A.R. ENCAMPMENT. The Commander -in - Chief 's Annual Address. Colored Posts Must Be Recog nized in the South. Membership of the Grand Army at Its Highest Point. The Next Encampment to Be Held at Indians polls — Reunion* and Sessions of Subordinate Associations. By tho Associated Press. 1 Washington, Sept. 21.—At 10:15 a. m. the G. A. R. encampment was rapped to order by Commander-in Chief Palmer. A glee club sang a song invit ing the encampment to Indianapolis next year, and was uproariously ap plauded. Commissioner Douelass of the District of Columbia read an ad dress of welcome, and General Palmer made a tasteful and appropriate reply. After the report of the committee on credentials had been received, General Palmer made his annual address. The address of the commander-in chief was well received. A large portion of it was addressed to patriotic reminis cences of tbe war and memories that the sc: nes around Washington recalled to the veterans. The race question, which has disrupted theG. A. R. organizations in Missippi and Louisiana, was reviewed at great length, the commander explain ing how he was forced to ignore the rights of the departments in those states to surrender their charter, and to insist that colored posts 9 to 17 must be rec ognized. After commenting en a series of resolutions published by the recalci trant and insubordinate retiring white posts, he concluded as follows: "In dealing with this subject I was not actuated by an unkind thought to ward a single member of the depart ment. It was known there were dis integrating forces at work which the national encampment concluded it was time to arrest, and in the discharge of the duty incumbent upon me, under my oath, I did it without either feeling of fear or prejudice." The passage by congress of the dis ability pension bill was warmly com mended, and it was urged that statutes to protect the rights of veterans of the late war, in the civil service, be more rigidly enforced. HIGH WATER MARK. The report of Adjutant-General Fred Phister followed the address of the com mander-in-chief. This report shows that there waß a gain of 229 in the number of new poets dnring the pau year. _ A significant and most pathetic sentence of this report is the follow ing: "Practically, it may be said that the membership of the G. A. R. is now at its highest point. It no doubt will remain about stationary for a few years to come, when necessarily it must drop, and the decrease will be rapid. NEXT CAMP AT INDIANAPOLIS. The only interesting feature of the afternoon session waß the selection of Indianapolis as the place for the next encampment, Lincoln deciding to make no contest. Many resolutions and communications were referred to the committee on reso lutions. The special committee appointed to pass upon the report of the surgeon general, brought in a report congratu lating the G.A.R. upon the increased efficiency of that bureau. The report was adopted, as was the report of the committee on pensions, which was in cluded in that of the adjutant-general, and contained no item of interest. An adjournment was then taken till tomorrow. THE NATION'S DEBT OP GRATITUDE. B. F. Stevenson, surgeon general of the G. A. R., in his annual report, com plains that many jaoßts failed to make any sanitary or mortuary returns, so the statistics on these matters are very incomplete. According to Pension Com missioner Katun's report, at the close of the fiscal year there were 870,078 pen sioners on the rolls, and the appropria tion aggregated $139,132,387. In addi tion to these vast expenditures the an nual appropriation for the numerous government homes was $2,633,840. There were also 173 government ceme teries kept up by government appropri ations. These appropriations, says the report, seem large, but, it adds, "they should be thought of in reference to the grand, loving cause calling them into being, the preservation of the govern ment from overthrow; and who can place too high an estimate on tbat achievement? It is absolutely beyond monetary consideration." In this connection, the report makes statement of the national resources, quoting Superintendent Porter, of tbe census bureau, to the effect tbat the absolute wealth of tbe United States may be estimated at $63,648,000,000,000. UNION VETERANB' UNION. The Union Veterans' union,which has 30,000 members, preceded the encamp ment meeting today, with a fine parade up Pennsylvania avenue. General Voder, commander-in-chief, and a large staff, headed by Adjutant-General Street, rode at the head of the procession. At the subsequent meeting General Voder delivered the annual address, reviewing the progress of the order. Gen. Green Clay Smith offered resolu tions, which were unanimously adopted, expressing sincere sympathy with Com rade Harrison because of the serious ill ness of his wife, and a sincere prayer for her recovery. A committee, of which ex-President Hayes is a member, was appointed to take measures for the establishment of an industrial home for the sons of vet erans. ON BOARD THE KEAR"SAROE. A number of corps re-unions were held during the day. On board the Kearearge it was marine corps day, and the old sailors entertained the land lub bers. Captain Herbert Winslow, son of Rear Admiral Winslow, who com manded the Kearsarge when she fought the Alabama, delivered an address. Vice-President Morton and Secretary Tracy visited the ship, and both made brief remarks, Secretary Tracy speaking of the need of a strong nany. THE MINUTE MEN OF '61. Steps were taken today having in view the birth of a new G. A. R, subordinate organization, under the title of 'The Minute Men of 1861," to be composed of all who entered the service under Presi dent Lincoln's call of April 15, 1861. Massachusetts has a state association of this character, and in Wisconsin a sim ilar organization I ma been staited. EX-PKISONEBS OF WAR. The association qf ex-Prisoners of War elected Marion T. Henderson of this city president. The association is interested in having congress act upon the bill granting a pension of $2 a day to all ex-prisoners who were imprisoned over a certain number of days. A com mittee was appointed to consider the question further. THE NEXT COMMADBR-IN-CHIEF. The Pennsylvania and New York del egates to the national encampment de cided tonight to vote as a unit for Cap tain Weissort, Wisconsin's candidate for commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. This action, it is asserted, will give Cap tain Weissort a majority of the votes and the election. Army and Navy Union. Detroit, Sept. 21.—The National Reg ular Army and Navy convention began here today, Commander Roche, of Bos ton, presiding. After a number of speeches were made, a recess was taken until tomorrow- The report of the com mander shows that the union now has 91 garrisons and a membership of over 10,000. ARSIS FOR THE REBELS.

The captain thereupon announced that there would be no delay in getting to aea. The Venezuelan consul says measures will be taken for preventing the arrival of the South Portland at Venezuela.

Portland, Ore., Sept.2l.—At the es •sion of the Sovereign Grand lodges of Odd Fellows, today, the headquarters of the order were changed from Columbus, Ohio, to Baltimore, Md.

Fusion in Wyoming. Douglass, Wyo., Sept. 21.—The Peo ple's party state convention met here today. The delegates were in caucus until after midnight, debating the ques tion of fusion, and most of the forenoon was devoted to the subject. A vote on fusion resulted 27 to 19 in favor of fusing. Great excitement en sued, and many delegates left the hall. The conditions of the fusion are these: The state Democratic nominees for presidential electors are to be withdrawn and Weaver electors se lected by the Populiats.

COLLIDED AT FULL SPEED. A Terrible Railway Disaster in Northern Ohio. The Worst Ever Known on the Fort Wayne Road. Freight and Passenger Cars Piled in Awful Confusion. The Wreck Takes Fire—lmprisoned Pas sengers Slowly Boasted to Death. Thirteen Blackened Corpses Recovered. By the Associated Press.] Cleveland, 0., Sept. 21. —What will undoubtedly prove the most disastrous accident in the history of the Pitts burg, Fort Wayne and Chicago railway, took place this morning early, near Shreve. An eastbound express train collided with a westbound freigh, both running at full speed. The collision oc curred on a sharp curve in a cut, where neither crew was able to see the other train approaching. Immediately after the crash flames burst forth, and it is believed but two or three persons were killed outright, the others having been pinned down and ?lowly roasted to death. Thirteen burned and blackened bodies were taken from the wreck. They were those of George Smith, fire man, of Crestline, 0.; D. E. Reese, poßtal clerk, Massillon; H. 8. Allen, postal clerk, Columbia; G. C. Mann, postal clerk, Chicago; J. Palterson,postal clerk, Beaver Falls, Pa.; A. D. Glenn, brakeman, Allegheny; N. Hammond, fireman, Allegheny; Samuel Jackson, expressman, Chicago; five unidentified bodies, including those of a lady and child. Some of the unidentified were bound for Alliance, 0., and others for Espeyville, Pa. The seriously injured are Frank Burta, Crestline, engineer of the express train ; James Ady, Sandusky, passenger; G. Stoker, Pittsburg, Pa.; D. O. Rhodes, Mahonington, Pa.; W. H. Brown, Hunt ington, Ind.; L. Koch, Massillon, O.; M. Armstrong, Noblesville, Ind.; J. Earnest, Millville, N. J. Two postal cars filled with through mail, one express car and three freight cars were consumed by fire. This after noon $50,000 in silver bricks was taken from beneath the masses of iron and cin ders. Some of the silver was melted. A temporary track has been built around the wreck, and travel partially resumed. The wreck was a terrible one, and, with the exception of three Pullman cars, the passenger train was a shapeless mass. I As soon aa the people of Shreve heard 'of the wreck many of them hastened to the scene with tbe local physicians, and tried to extinguish the flames acd res cue the unfortunates in the day coaches. The Are gained too great a headway, however, and little could be done. Those that perished were pinned down by timbers, and the people outside had to stand back while the helpless victims slowly burned to death. The fireman of the f/eight train had a horrible death, as he was caught in the cab, and his frightfully burned body dangled in the air in view of hundreda who visited the scene, the rescuers being unable to get at it because of the beat. A Pennsylvania Disaster. Lancaster, Pa., Sept. 21.—The second section of the westward bound express on the Pennsylvania railroad ran into the firat Bection at Rheims station, yes terday afternoon, and both trains were badly wrecked.

Archbishop Ireland expressed the utmost surprise at the resolution, and said it would never be adopted. The archbishop added that Cahensly's whole language was an insult to our natianal honor, and Senator Davis did well in repelling such a foreign attack, and all Americans will applaud his action.
