The Next Encampment to Be Held at
Indians polls — Reunion* and
Sessions of Subordinate
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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.

the arrival of the South Portland at

that some steamship has been bought

soon as she gets into Venezuelan waters.

Thirteen Blackened Corpses
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

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

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.

cars, the passenger train was a shapeless
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.

impressive sense of his duty as an
American citizen and senator. The sen
ator paid his respects once more to Ca
henslyism, and said he would rather be

mand full of insolence. Archbishop
Ireland expressed the utmost surprise
at the resolution, and said it would
never be adopted. The archbishop

Perfect confidence was restored here
among tbe detained people by the an
nouncement after the daily iuapeetioßj

fant, whose mother and two little sisters
died on the Rugia while at sea, and who,
through the neglect of the ship's stew
ard and stewardess, it is reported, is

nant at the wanton cruelty of the steam
ship people.
