THE MEMORIAL COMMITTEE AT WORK.
Preparations are being actively made by the Me
morial Committee of this city for a proper observ
ance of Memorial Day, and matters are in as ad
vanced a stage as could be expected at this date.
President Cleveland and his Cabinet, members of
the Senate and House, Governor Hill and his staff,
Generals Sherman and Sheridan, and many other
distinguished military, naval and civil officials have
received, or will receive, invitations to be present,
and a large number of these prominent gentlemen
■will doubtless accept. It is understood that Com
mander-in-Cbief Fairchild cannot attend, and that
Department Commander Treadwell has accepted an
invitation Ito review the parade in Brooklyn in the
morning, and will be the guest of John A. Dix Post
in this ci y, in the afternoon.
An elaborate programme is being prepared for the
exercises at the Academy of Music in New York in
the evening, but the only thing settled is that the
Rev. De Witt Talmage will deliver the oration. He
is sure to fill the house to its utmost capacity, and
those desiring to attend should take the first op
portunity to secure tickets.
THE McLEER-JOEL SUIT.
The Dispatch thinks that Comrade McLeer wishes
Just now that ho had kept out of lawsuits. Some
five or six years ago Comrade Joel, of the Grand
Army Gazette, in commenting upon tho fact that
Commissioner Dudley had granted Comrade McLeer
a pension for total disability (then SSO per month)
which had been refused him by Commissioner
Bentley, who was Dudley’s predecessor, accused the
applicant of seeking and obtaining a rate of pen
sion to which he knew he was not enti
tled. A row followed, and Comrade Mc-
Leer procured an indictment in New York
against Comrade Joel for criminal libel, and
at the same time began an action for $50,000
damages in a civil suit in Brooklyn. Mutual friends
intervened, and Comrade Joel having become con
vinced that ho was misinformed, or ignorant in re
gard to certain circumstances, offered to make a re
traction of his statements and did so in the col
umns of his paper.
Several years passed by and nothing more was
hoard of the matter until a few months ago, when
for reasons not easily discernible upon the surface,
but thoroughly understood by those behind the
scones. Comrade Joel was suddenly informed that
measures were being taken to bring the criminal
indictment found against him in this city on an ex
parte statement, to trial.
This was shortly before the last Department En
campment. A Brooklyn comrade, to whom it was
known Comrade Joel was strongly opposed, was a
candidate lor Department Commander, and it was a
matter of rumor in Grand Army circles that this
candidate, if elected, would make Comrade McLeer
his quartermaster general, thereby enabling him to
continue his custom of drawing a salary, to which
the accession of President Cleveland had proveda
serious drawback. The revival of the case alter the
lapse of so many years and this state of affairs in
regard to the approaching Department Encamp
ment may be only a coincidence, but it must be ac
knowledged a enrious one.
Well, the criminal indictment came up before
Judge Gildersleevo in this city, (prior to the en
campment, mind you), and bis Honor, upon being
Informed of the facts in the case, and that a civil
cuit had been instituted upon the same grounds,
promptly announced that be would have nothing
to do with the case until the civil case had been
tried. Thereupon Room 14, Brooklyn, retreated to
its den so discomfited that its candidate withdrew,
and those who voiced its sentiments upon the floor
of the Encampment were hooted at. The brilliant
strategy of the Lilliputian Corporal had been a
dismal failure, and Department Commander Tread
well did not appoint Comrade McLeer his Quarter
master General.
But Comrade Joel, like a wise soldier, was. not to
be caught napping again. The enemy having un
masked their batteries and revealed their position,
he decided to dislodge them. Through his counsel.
Comrade General Horatio C. King, he insisted upon
the immediate trial of the civil suit, which Comrade
McLeer had instituted years ago. The battle began
on Tuesday last, and was not decided until Friday
morning, when it was found that Comrade Joel and
bis able counsel had won a glorious victory, the
jury having disagreed after eight hours of delibera
tion. That this was a complete victory is shown by
the fact that the contents of Room No. 14, were
turned into the court room to bolster up Comrade
McLeer’s cause. But the right won, as the right
will always win, and the "gang” was defeated.
They must be getting used to it now for they have
been getting heavy punishment ever since the day
that the legloss corporal after crossing the continent
went, saw and was conquered.
But perhaps the most significant thing about the
whole trial was the testimony given by Comrade
Lewis R. Stegman, who swore that he once re
marked to Corporal Tanner : " You seem to own
the whole Pension Bureau at Washington;’’ and that
Tanner replied : " That's about the size of it.”
ECHOES OF THE TRIAL.
Comrade McLeer was a gallant member of the
©ld •• Fighting Fourteenth,” of Brooklyn, and had
he not listened to evil advisers, he would be happier
to-day. Motto: "Don’t try to pull chestnuts out
©f the fire for somebody else.”
Corporal Jim Tanner seemed to be the bright, in
spiring spirit of the prosecution. Ever and anon
he whispered words of unutterable wisdom in the
Brobdignanian ear of Counsellor Backus, and he
frequently turned his face in such away that the
jury could fully appreciate its more Grecian beauty.
Such an array of office-holders and ex-office
holders as the witnesses lor the prosecution pre
sented, is seldom witnessed. Among the most
notable was the plaintiff himself, whose testimony
showed that he had been holding office almost con.
tinuously since the war; Corporal Tanner whose pro
clivities in this direction are too well known to need
any comment, and E. A. Perry, a very willing wit.
boss, who is still an office-holder in the custom
house.
••That’s about the size of it.” Comrades remem
ber that remark of Corporal Tanner’s, as testified to
by Comrade Lewis R. Stegman, and scattered broad
cast throughout the land by the press. When you
meet in Post, Department and National Encamp
ments, do not give him an opportunity to go out
among his cronies, and in response to their adulia
tion boastiully remark: " That’s about the size of
it.” It wasn’t the size of it at Albany last February.
dr. McGlynn and dakin post.
Rev. Dr. Edward McGlynn was recently invited
by the Memorial Committee of T. S. Dakin Post, of
Brooklyn, to deliver the address at the memorial
services to be held by the post on the 29th inst.
The following reply has been received:
"April 27, 1887,
••Fenton Rockwell, Esq.. Brooklyn, N. Y.
"Dear Sir : Dr. McGlynn has duly received your i
esteemed favor of the 25th inst., inviting him to
deliver the address at Cypress Hill’s National Ceme
tery (new one), on the 29th of May next, on the oc
casion of the memorial services of the G. A. R. over
the Union soldiers and sailors there buried, and he
requests mo to thank you for your courteous invi
tation, and to say that he cheerfully accepts it. Dr.
McGlynn sends bis kindest compliments and re
spects to you and your associates of the committee
in charge. I am, dear eir, sincerely yours,
"GAYBERT BARNES, Secretary.”
In view of the fact that the Cypress Hills column
will have all it can do on Memorial Day to suitably
care for the graves in the old cemetery, Dakin Post
has thought it advisable that imposing ceremonies
should be held in the new cemetery on Sunday,
May 2Stb. As has been seen, the oration will be de
livered by Dr. McGlynn, and Mayor Whitney is ex
pected to preside. The event will be an important
one in the history of Dakin Post, and to signalize it
several sister posts have been invited to take part,
and the invitation has been accepted by Strong,
Doane, Middleton, Casper Trepp, Lew. Hamilton
Posts, of Brooklyn, and Ford Post, of Canarsie.
The line of March will be from the terminus of the
Elevated Railroad, East New York, the start to be
made at 2:30 P. M. Dakin Post will leave its head
quarters, No. 136 Broadway, Brooklyn, E. D., at one
o'clock, sharp, preceded by its flute and drum
corps, and each comrade bearing in his bands one
or more pots of flowers.
The post will march to the intersection of Bedford
and Flushing avenues, where it will be joined by
Strong and Doane Posts. Then they will proceed
to Nostrand avenue and embark upon the elevated.
A very handsome rostrum, capable of affording
Boats to 1,000 people, has been erected in the ceme
tery ground by the United States, and as this is the
first time a general service has been held there a
large turnout is looked for. Comrades of the Grand
Army are invited to take part in the ceremonies,
and as the expenses will be heavy those attending
are requested to bring with them, if convenient, a
pot of flowers, as there are some 600 or 700 graves to
be decorated, many bodies having been removed to
this cemetery from David’s, Hart’s and Governor’s
Islands and from different hospital grounds. Any
post desiring to contribute flowers in bulk is re
quested to send a note to the beadquarters of the
committee, No. 242 Grand street, Brooklyn, and
wagosfl will be sent for the donation! on Saturday,
the 28th inst.
MIDDLETONIAN ENJOYMENTS.
In every month in which there are five Saturdays,
B. F. Middleton Post, of Brooklyn, celebrates the
event by a literary and musical entertainment at
their headquarters In Lexington Hall, corner oi
Gates and Reid'avenues. Consequently, on the
evening of April 80, one of these pleasant affairs was
In order. The elegant and spacious hall was crowd
ed with members of the post, visiting comrades and
tho wives and sweethearts of all. The programme
which had been arranged was an excellent one, and
the wav in which all who took part 'in it were re
ceived must have been very gratifying to them.
Encores were frequent, and the audience were
splendidly entertained. Addresses were made by
Commander Shattuck, of the post; Past Commander
L’Hommedieu, Adjt. J. Worden Gedney, Past Com
mander Henry A. Phillips, of Perry Post, No. 89, aud
Comrade Van Houten, of Ford Post, Canarsie, song
••■1 ho Flag,” the chorus being carried by the audi
ence. Past Com. L’Hommedieu, in the course oi his
address, unfolded a rebel battle flag which had been
taken out of Richmond City Hall on the entry of the
Union troops at Richmond on April 3, 1865. The
other entertainers were Master Bloodgood in a re
citation; tho Misses Wood in a duet and piano solo;
Comrade Franklin J. Hill in a cornet solo; Miss
Lotta Cooper, Miss Marion C. Shattuck and Miss
Fannie Whitnack in recitations; a solo by Andrew
C. Ogden; duet by Mrs. F. J. Hill and Mrs. H. M.
Lney, and the "Modern Sermon” by Mr. J. B.
Sheehan. Dancing followed, and a good time was
had until Sunday morn warned the merrymakers
that it was time to go home.

NO MERCY FOR OLD SOLDIERS.
The friction between the Bureau of Employment
and Relief, and the office of the County Cl-rk still
exists. In order to make the cause of the misunder
standing plain to the readers of -the Dispatch, the
following explanation is given:
When a paper is sworn to before a Notary Public
to be sent outside of tho county in which the notary
resides, it is necessary that the certificate of the
County Clerk shall be affixed to the document
attesting to the official position of the notary and
the genu neness of bis signature.
Most, if not all, of the departments in Washing
ton, including the Pension Bureau, are crowded
with business. To simplify and hasten the transac
tion of affairs they have for many years been in the
habit of placing on file a general certificate signed
by the clerk of the county in which it is issued,
which does away with the necessity for numberless
journey s to the County Clerk’s office every time
that a paper intended for that department is attested
by the notary aud the consequent delay aud ex
pense. The form of certificate in use in the Second
Auditor’s office, Washington, which will giveagood
idea of all, is as follows:
of the Clerk of court.
[National Seal.] [Official signature of Notary.]
State of New York, |
County of New York j
I , Clerk of the Court of the County and
State aforesaid, do hereby certify that is a
Notary Public in and for said county, duly quali
fied to act as such; that his term of office com
menced the day of , 18—. and will expire on
the day of , 18—, and that the impress of
his seal aud his signature above written, are genu
ine.
Given under my hand and the seal of the
[L. S.] said court, at , on this day of
What the Bureau of Employment and Relief
claims is, that it has always been customary in this
county, heretofore, and is still customary in other
counties throughout the United States, to grant
these certificates upon the application of a notary.
This certainly seems proper aud appropriate, as the
forms issued by the general government were evi
dently intended to be used lor this very purpose.
But since County Clerk Flack came into office, this
custom, which usage bad made a law, has been
changed, and a rule has beeu established that no
general certificates shall be given, but that the
clerk must attach one of hie certificates upon eacu
separate document sworn to before a notary.
That this ruling presses heavily upon decrepit
soldiere and needy widows and orphans, who swear
to applications for pensions, it is needless to say,
and it is a shame and outrage that the great and
wealthy city of New York should be the first aud
only oue to make a ruling like this imperative. It
was asserted by a correspondent of the Dispatch.
last Sunday, that County Clerk Flack would remit
such lees at the request of the Relief Bureau; but
we are assured upon good authority that this prom
ise has been violated during the past week. Tho
payment of a fee oi twenty-flve cents lor a County
Clerk’s certificate may seem like a small matter,
but if readers will only drop in at Room No. 4 City
Had on any Wednesday or Friday morning, and see
the aged and destitute veterans aud widows assem
bled there, to whom comrades are giving time aud
assistance without reward, or the hope of it, except
in the consciousness of do.ng good, they will have
their eyes opened.
But, desiring to do no injustice, the Dispatch
representative called npon Deputy County Clerk
Gilroy, whose statements and explanations were
substantially as follows:
"We have taken a firm stand on the question of,
issuing these certificates to be placed on file in
Washington, and will not do it. We are guide ! iu
, this matter by the laws of the State, and not by the
' usages of the United States, or some other State.
Other counties in the State of New York may, or
may not, give these certificates, and as to that we
have nothing to do with it; all we can do is to carry
out the law as we find it.
"Before Mr. Flack’s incumbency the County Clerk
received the fees of the office and could remit them
if he saw fit to do so, but now the County clerk re
ceives a salary and the fees are handed into the
State treasury and belong to the State. In deserv
ing cases we remit them, if we deem it justifiable,
but it would not do to make the practice universal.
Another thing, the granting of such certificates for
filing in Washington or elsewhere would bo produc
tive Of fraud. A notary public is appointed lor two
years, but it he removes from the county where he
is appointed (which renders bis appointment in
valid) if his certificate is on file elsewhere he can
continue to exercise the functions of a notary pub
lic, although the papers attested by him would be
worthless.”
This is a very specious presentation of Mr.Gilroy’s
side of the case, but on the other baud is the fact
that it has beeu the habit in this city to grant these
certificates for many years past and no evil results
have followed. In other cities they are still granted
without question and nobody has heard a word of
complaint from any source. There are still a few of
the old soldiers alive, and they may have a few
friends. It seems pretty certain that none of tho
latter are among the "powers that be ” in the Coun
ty Clerk’s office. Comrades, there are thousands of
us that will be alive for years to come and it be
hooves us to have good memories.
FIRST NEW YORK VETERANS.
The members of the Veteran Association of the
First New York Volunteers, celebrated the twenty
sixth atniversary of the departure of the regiment
for the front on the 23d ult. An elegant and
bounteous spread had been prepared in Beethoven
Hall lor the members aud their guests, an I about
nine o'clock all took their places at the board with
Pre-ident Samuel Minnes at the head of the table.
He was llank-d on the right by General James R.
O’Beirue, and on the left by Commander Van Riper,
of New Jersey. The" old boys” pitched into the
good things without formality, and showed them
selves as able trenchermen as they were a quarter
Of a century ago. Alter everybody had come to tho
conclusion that they would not care lor another
meal, for a week at least, cigars were lighted, and
Captain Minues congratulated the veterans upon
their being together again after the lapse of so many
years, and narrated many incidents, both pathetic
and ludicrous which took place while the regiment
was in the service, He was loudly applauded, and
finished his remarks by introducing General
O’Beirne as an adopted member of the " First.’’
The general’s response was an eloquent one,
abounding in pathos and humor. He exhorted the
veterans to stand together regardless of party affilia
tions, and declared that this course was the only
oue which would secure them the recognition to
which they were entitled. Able and interesting
speeches were also made by Commander Van Riper,
Quartermaster Wansloy, Assistant District Attor
ney Douris, Color Sergeant Ben. Levy, Secretary
Elliott, Treasurer Juiicb, Comrade Adam Brown
and others. It was a late hour when the party
broke up, congratulating each othar upon the
pleasurable nature of their reunion.
SOME PAST EVENTS.
Last Monday evening the Twelfth Regiment
Athletic Association gave a reception aud exhibition
in amateur athletic military games, at the new
Armory. The attendance was large, and the occasion
all that the most exacting member could have de
sired.
A package sociable was given by the members of
the Veteran Association of the Second Fire Zouaves
on Thursday evening last, to commemorate the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the battle of Williams
burg. Tho vets, who were present will remember
th<* commemoration almost as long as they will the
battle.
A complimentary concert and hop took place at
Walhalla Hall last night, which was tendered to
Prof. Wm. McCarthy by his pupils. It was a de
servedly brilliant success, for it is mainly owing to
Pro 1 . McCarthy's able and faithful instruction that
tho flute and drum corps of Dahlgren Post has at
tained the proficiency that makes it second to no
other organization of the kind in the country.
Members of Dahlgren Post, their families aud
friends showed a suitable appreciation of his efforts
by giving him a "rouser.”

until next Fourth of July, but he writes, or rather
spells out, an excellent letter. A handsome photo
graph of the little fellow also came along as a pres
ent to Mrs. Fargls, the sister of Comrade Minnes.

gas without expense, this may be true. All posts
attending in a body, with their drum and fife corps,
will be admitted free of charge.
Late meetings of the C. D. McKenzie Post, of
Brooklyn, have not been as lively as usual, owing
te the illness of Comrade Boyce (the Post’s •* war
horse ”) and the members of his family. He had
hardly recovered from a month's sickness when
his wife and children, one after another, were taken
down. His comrades stood by him nob.y in his
hour of trouble, but even Comrade *' Boreas ’ Kem
ble and lively Comrade Leamy were infected by
the gloom that shadowed the Post. Matters were
livened a little at the last meeting, when Com
mander Rutan, of Odell Post; Chaplain Riley, of
Devin Post, and other comrades dropped in and
made some interesting addresses.
Martin Thum, who served in the United States
Navy during the war, and who was a member of
Dahlgren Post, died on Thursday last, after an ill
ness oi several weeks. He will be buried from his

(Duryee Zouaves) will meet at 392 Bowery, at eight
o’clock, next Tuesday evening. All comrades pro
posing to go to Newport, R. 1., on Memorial Day are
expected to qualify on that evening.

B. F. Middleton Post, of Brooklyn, will attend
Divine service Stephen's Episcopal Church,
corner o: Patchen and Jefferson avenues, liev.
Joseph Reynolds, Jr., will deliver a special sermon
to the Post. Comrades are requested to assemble at
the residence of Conrad Keymer, 864 Quincy street,
at 4.30 P. M. sharp, and a cordial invitation is ex
tended to members of sister Posts.
Dr. John T. Nagle, of the Bureau of Vital Statis
tics, unlike some of our county officials, does all he
can to aid the Relief Bureau by furnishing it with
the necessary transcripts from his bureau relating
to destitute veterans, gratuitously. The " old boys’’
will always remember him with gratitude.
Cameron Club, of Company D, Seventy-first Regi
ment, National Guard, will give an entertainment
and reception at the armory, Broadway and Forty
fifth street,next Thursday evening. This is the re
ception announced lor April 27, but unavoidably
postponed. The entertainment will boot a first
class character, and will consist of a short drill, fol
lowed by singing, recitations and character sketches.
The Dispatch devotes considerable space to the
libel suit tried in Brooklyn last week, and while it
does not pose as the champion oi Comrade Joel, for
he is able to take care of himself, it believes hiiu to
be actuated by the best oi motives. Ho has his
laults, and commits errors, like all other human
beings, t ut he bears more scars upon his body than
either General McLeer or Corporal Tanner, having
been shot in five different places. Odo bullet passed
tnrongh his lungs, and this wound frequently
causes him intense suffering. Another thing is,
be is not a perpetual and chronic office-seeker, in
side and outside the Graud Army.
On Tuesday evening next at eight o’clock a meet
ing of the Bixth Corps Society will be heal in the
Common Council Chamber, City Hall, Brooklyn, to
receive assessments and contributions from those
who have not as yet subscribed for the Sedgwick
memorial tablet. Veterans of the "Old Sixth ’
should surely be present at the meeting. Any com
rade or other person intending to be present at the
dedication of tho tablet at Spottsylvania. Va.. May
12, should at once notify the Transportation Com
mittee, consisting of Henry C. Larowe, No. 114 Han
cock street, Brooklyn; Henry W. Knight, No. 41
Seventh avenue. Brooklyn; or James N. Mills, room
3, Court House, Brooklyn.
Counselor Backus should have studied the record
before delivering bis high-sounding eulogy upon
the martial services of Comrade Tanner lust Thurs
day.
At the encampment of. Koltes Post, held last
Friday evening, the following resolution was unani
mously adopted : " Jlesolved, We protest against
the passage of any bill refunding the money paid
by drafted men for substitutes furnished during the
War of the late Rebellion.” 'lbs adjutant was
directed to forward a copy of these resolutions to
the Governor, members of the Senate and Assembly
of this State.
Farnham Post has fifteen or more recruits ready
for muster, and they are expected to be present at
the next regular meeting, which will take place at
the headquarters, Forty-ninth street and Seventh
avenue, next Wednesday evening. The post num
bers nearly 250 members and is rapidly growing.
