Monday evening at 6 o'clock a special

( > consideration of the members. President

the meeting and ask for a large and
representative attendance.
The committee that went to Columbus
recently and secured for Wheeling the
1898 reunion of the Society of the Army
of West Virginia will make Its report
and offer recommendations relative tc
beginning the work of preparing for
tne entertainment of the 10,000 to 15,00C
people who are expected to come to
town for the reunion. The committee
believes that this work should be started
at once and doubtless a recommende
atlon on that line will be offered Moil,b{
<luy nlttht.
s- The other important matter that will
come up is the representation of Wheeling
ut the third annual convention of
the Ohio Valley Improvement Assocla?*
tion, which is to be held In Evansvlllc,
= on October 11 In the last two years
^ this organization has accomplished
- much In the cause of river improvement
$ and its proKramme for the future Is one
hf that relutes Intimately to the progress
C> and prosperity of all the communities
J on the upper Ohio river?certainly to
& none more than It does to the greater
W Wheeling. Slackwater Is the motto or
? the association, and success means a
& great deal for Wheeling. If no other
? town on the river were represented at
hi the convention, Wheeling ought to be
5? on hand at Evnnsvllle.

& the president of the association, recent2?
ly ?ent the following open Jotter to the
i.secretary of the organization:
Mr. E. P. Wilson, Secretary Ohio Valley
improvement Association, Cincinnati,
MY DEAIt SIR:?As the time approaches
for the annual convention of tho Ohio
Ohio Valley Improvement Association, It
Is proper to submit to tho membership a
brief statement of the present conditions
brought about by the work already accomplished
by the officers of tho association.
it is my firm conviction that this work
w has revolutionized public sentiment in roff
Kord to the Improvement of internal water1
ways. Instead of looking upon every projg
Ject of this character with suspicion, the
p public in all sections of the country has
ff come to regard tho systematic plans now
ft- in progress with a hiffh degroo of favor.
a it Is noted with a marked degroo of satis1
/'action that the work of tho Ohio Valley
7J Improvement Association has not been
i* local, scctlonal or selfish, but has been
? mapped upon broad lines, from which the
benefit to the country at largo is already
? clearly disci'rnable. The release of tho
Monongahela river, which ia now an accomplished
fact, abates a tax which was
assessable with ?reat uniformity and rejr=
ularity upon every consumer of coal from
the source of the Ohio fo tho headwaters
? and mouth of tho Mississippi, tho carrv~
