On Friday meetings and reunions of all national organizations will en? gage the attention of the veterans, and Saturday will be tnken up with pleasure tours and leave-takings. Though each year takes Its toll <n the veterans' ranks, and each year In? creases their burden of age. the well preserved appearajice of th? thousands of veterans that throng the streets of Rochester seems to bear out the well defined sentiment of cheerfulness, op tlmlsm and comradeshlr prevalent throughout their ranks. Veteran meets veteran with boyish enthusiasm, the crowded hotel lobbies are the ] scenes of excited gatherings of old j soldiers, the martial spirit is rife, and stories of the war the current tenJer of gossip. That those whoso feeble1 ess lays them open to attacks of illness may be taken care of with the utmost facili? ty, emergency hospitals have been es? tablished in all parts of the city, and first aid stations at short intervals throughout the downtown section of the city. All these arrangements are In charge of the public health com? mittee of the Rochester Chamh/sr of Commerce. This body has provided a large corps of physicians and nurses. Ninety-two automobiles and twice as many doctors and nurses will be post? ed along the line of march during the parade, and local companies of the National Guard will also be on duty to see that no accident that can be prevented takes place. In addition to these precautions and safeguards against accident to the veterans, the residents of Rochester have thrown pen their homes to the old soldiers, placed their automobiles at the disposal of the G. A. R. com? mittees, and subscribed a large sum to be used In attending to their com? fort. In addition to the convention of the Grand Army, there are hundreds of regimental and association conven? tions going on this week, all of them related In some way to the great struggle between the North and South, over fifty years ago.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.] washlngton, August : 3.?'Die Inter? national Joint Commiaslona which will shortly be completed by the piomuiga tion of the ncuv.'s of tho Canadian commissioners;, the announcement of the Canadian personnel coming through the British Foreign Office, as of the appointment of His J'.aJosily, King George, 1j tho hrst piece oi interna? tional inacninery for ulrect negotia? tions and settlement of questions thai , may ar'se bctwsin ilte i.'ilitod States and tho Dominion of Canada. It is a; modified Hague tribunal confined to! the northern part of tho North Amer- j ican continent. Through the powers ttonferrovl upon this commission by I the treaty with Great Britain of liiC'.'. | the representatives of the United States and those of Canada may t;.kc up questions relating to the develop? ment and use of the waterways be? tween the two countr'es To Fix Use of Waters. The primary work of the commission is in relation to tho water bouudury ?not as to Its location, but as to Its uses. There are many plans /or the use of these international waters other j than for navigation, but there has j been no competent authority for grant. Ing permits and at the saute time properly protecting the rights of the: people on the othe rslde of the Inter? national llrjf. There arc pending schemes for de? veloping water power in the St. Johns Klver, which forms the international boundary between Maine and Now Brunswick; for the development of the Richelieu River, whtoh s the out? let of Lake Chaplain; for the improve, meat of navigation und the develop? ment of water power n the St. Law? rence River between New York and Ontario; for the sanitary canal around Niagara Falls on the American side; for the development of water power In the Rainy River betwown Minnesota und Cnnada; also for development of water power in the Lake of the Woods, and uses of the?water of the St Mary River and the Milk River. In Montana and Sashkatchowan for Irrigation pur? poses. Thoro are smaller projects, but these larger schemes will furnish ample work for the commission, and If sottled ample Juntif.uatlon for the creation of such an international court of arbitration. The negotiation of this waterway.: treaty, creating the International Joint Commission. Is the first sfupv towards an enlarged control oy the Dominion of Canada of her, relations with the. .United States. These questions relat? ing to the water boundary are not ribw. Shey 1 have been und?r consideration for years, hut they had to be handled In the old way through the diplomatic representative of Great Britain, and the negotiations had to be conducted In the roundabout way of London to Ottawa and back by the same route to Washington. Such Indirect negotia? tions were In a measure responsible for the dissatisfaction the Canadians have manifested wltn the settlement of the Alaskan boundary and other Questions In controversy. Direct Negotiations. The International Joint Commission provides for direct negotiations be? tween Canada and the United States on all questions relating to the water boundary, and opens the way for the settlement of all other questions that may arise by the reference of theso questions to that commission. The : general arbitration trsutles between the United States and Great Britain ' and France may fall of ratification, ! but In the creation of the Interna i tional Joint Commission the beginning ; has been made in the most practical i way on the questions tuocning the re | lations of this country and its nearest neighbor, who is progressing along I the same lines as ho.re, with the same I kind of people, who have ambitions and the enterprise touching the de i velopment of the greatest water power [ on the American continent I The commissioners to represont the United States have been appointed, and are former United States Senator Thomas H.

Politicians In tho Southslde antici? pate an unusually large attendance of votors to-night at a mass-meeting to take place at i o'clock In fraternal Hall under the auspices Of the Wash? ington Ward Democratic League, when all of the candidates from Richmond will make their pleas for support of citizens at the primary, which takes place September 7. The maetlng will be an open one, and all men are urged to be present. It Is not expected that any sensations will be afforded, for the campaign thus far has been a more or less friendly I one. ? However, Interesting food for voters' thought will bo served by the speakers. Interest I'nahnted. ITnabated Interest Is still being dis? played by every man. woman and ! child In South Richmond in anything! which Is connected with the case of Henry Clay Beattle, Jr.. now under Indictment for tho murder of his young I wife on tho Midlothian Turnpike, Clies-i terfleld county, on the night of July IS. The crowd from South Richmond which ' went to the courthouse last week to i be present when the grand Jury re- j turned a true bill nnainst the accus .ed. Is expected to be several times as; large to-day. As far os-could be learn? ed last nlirht there was no Indication that there will be any further post? ponement In this case, as many have supposed, and those most e.loBely con? nected with the case wero satisfied when seen that the work of empanel? ling a Jury will begin this morning. Of course, there Is a possibility that on account of some unforseon obstacle the trial mny be continued, but It Is accepted that If nothing turns up tho court will go Immediately Into tho case. Tho ease of tho Commonwealth 1 against Boattlo will be ceiled ai, J.?. o'clock. On account of the distance of tho courthouse from the city, thoso wishing to be present will leave on early trains. Practically every vehlclo in South Richmond, It Is expected, will be pressed Into service as a means of reaching the courthouse. Realizing tho Impossibility of gain? ing admission to tbe scene of tho trial, many persons are going merely for an opportunity of seeing the prisoner an.l the two now noted witnesses In tho case, Beulnh Btnford nnd Paul D, Beat tlo. It Is not believed that tho wo? man who will testify for the State, will be summoned to court to-day. nnd there is some doubt whether Paul Beat tie will be taken out. Henry Beattle, however, will bo present. Funeral of Mra. Bnrnlab. ' Tho funeral of Mrs. Harriet D.
