THE 49TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT Of the G. A. R. Department of Wisconsin, at Wausau, June 14th, 15th and (6th, 1915. • .... ■- - ■ 1 * - ' Wausau has done a thing which perhaps, it will never have an oppor tunity of doing again—entertaining the Veterans of the Civil war. Not because they have not the inclination to do so, hut because of the fact that those old veterans are fast passing away; and, in as much as every city of any importance in Wisconsin is de sirous of doing the honors for the saviours of our country and by the time Wausau’s turn would come again, those now living of that great army of the flower of American citizen ship, which fought so nobly and so bravely for the preservation of the Union in the sixties, will have passed to their eternal home. Judge Louis Marchetti, our foremost citizen, noted for his intense patriotism: love for humanity; great pride in the affairs of his home city and who has no superior in working out the details of such a large undertaking as the entertaining of the Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, realized that this was Wausau’s only chance to entertain the G. A. R. and he bent every energy to make the event such a one as would do credit to our city and meet the high expect ations of its citizens, and above all to give the old soldiers such a reception and kindly greeting that there would not be the least doubt of the sincerity of their “Welcome.” At the close of the civil war in IBtis, 35,000 war worn veterans returned to Wisconsin, out of the much larger number who had enlisted in this state, to resume the avocations from which they had been called four vears RESOLUTIONS Passed by the G. A. R. Encampment on Wednesday Morn ing, June 16, Filled With Beautiful Thoughts of Our City and of its People. What can we say about Wausau, Queen of the Wiscon sin Valley, and her 18,000 wide-awake citizens? What can’t we say about these days of uplift, a season of undisturbed pleasure, and a time of continuous manifestations of patriotism that have thrilled and re-thrilled in a way we can never forget. Comrades, visitors all, what can we and what can’t we say? Our full hearts and our keen appreciation make it possible to say whole columns, and never in our experience have we had, during our Grand Army experience, two days so crowded with pleasure and so complete with satisfaction. The day will never come when we shall not keep in pleasant memory these days in Wausau. No matter how earnestly we may desire to properly thank the people of this city, for what they have done to make our visit one of pleasure and profit to us, we shall fail to do what it is in our hearts to do. In the first place, we thank them for the invitation to come here; we thank them for the complete preparations they made for our coming; we thank them for the open doors to their homes; we thank them for the generous hearts worn on their sleeves; we thank them for the hearty handgrasp and their words of welcome. Words fail us when we attempt to thank them for the manner in which they have decorated their city. No matter in what direction we looked, we saw the dear national emblem which it was our privilege to follow in a great war, and to bring back to the people with the dark spot taken off, Lincoln's flag, the flag of the first nation of the world. No other decoration could have pleased us so well. Our hearts go out in gratitude to the teachers who trained the more than one thousand little girls in preparing them for one of the most beautiful displays we have ever witnessed, either at a department encampment or a national encampment. That flag composed of those little children will prove an inspir ation to us the balance of our lives. We cannot begin to make known to the people of Wausau how keenly we appreciate what the schools and their city have done to give us something we shall ever hold in almost sacred remembrance. That flag and their court of honor, the latter displaying the names of our different regiments, has never before been attempted in a de partment or national encampment. VVe shall return to our homes with beautiful pictures of Wausau and her people so firmly stamped upon memory’s plates, that they will remain with us and give us pleasure to the end of the journey. In many respects the banquet and campfire differed from anything we had ever before experienced. That vast hall so beautifully decorated was an inspiration to all who beheld it, and the banquet and its long tables laden with everything that could be wished, and the novel and perfect service by a body of thoroughly trained young soldiers, and music that could not be improved upon, constituted a treat to all of us that we had no right to expect, but it waa appreciated to the fullest possible extent. For this we are grateful. Wausau and her 18.00® sterling, stirring, patriotic people, let us say thanks, and again thanks, and again thanks. W. J. McKAY Department Commander. before. The ease with which they did this, as well as the millions of soldiers in other states, is one of the marvels of American history. Gov. Fairchild of Wisconsin, well said at that time: “The transition from the citizen to the soldier was not half so rapid, nor half so wonderful, as has been the transition from the soldier to the citizen. The citizen soldier has become the plain citizen, and as the former has never been wanting in the discharge of his military duties, so we know that the latter will ever be equal to the responsibilities and cares of civil life.” Out of those 35,000 who came back to Wisconsin, less than 1,000 were in Wausau to answer the roll call at the Encampment. Truly, they are rapidly passing from us. Was the Encampment a success ? The Pilot can only refer its readers to the various resolutions passed by the visitors. They say it was, and we believe them. One who holds a high place in G. A. 11. circles, as well as in the state at large, said: “1 wish you would say for me, that Wausau has given the members of the G. A. R. Encampment the best entertainment they have had for I twenty years. It is a surprise and ! gratification to us all. We appreciate ! it and will ever remember the good l people of Wausau for their very gene i rous hospitality to the old soldiers. It cannot be excelled anywhere.” The G. A. R. Encampment at Wau sau for 11)15 has now passed into history, and the patriotic lessons taught our boys and girls, the mem ory of those gray-haired veterans, will JJa (isa r JSBs Pilot. Wisconsin Department Headquarters LADIES OF THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC Office of Department President WEST BEND, June 18, 1915 HON. JUDGE MARCHETTI, Chairman of Citizens’ Committee, Wausau, Wis. Dear Sir: The department of Wisconsin Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic desire to extend their appreciation and most grateful acknowledgement to the citizen's committee, who by their untiring zeal, made our sojourn in your beautiful city of Wausau an event never to be forgotten. We thank you. Respectfully yours in F. C. and L. OLGA SCHAEFER, MARTHA E. A. MERRIAM, Secretary Department President ever remain as an inspiration for greater effort along the lines of love and duty to our beloved country. And for all this and the great soccers of the Encampment the people of Wausau are very grateful to ihe lion. Louis Marchetti and his able corps of workers. nOW IT WAS SECURED. At the 11)14 session of the G. A. R. Encampment held at the city of Madi son, Wis., the city of Wausau, through its mayor, lion. John Ringle, invited the Department to hold its next ses sion in Wausau, which invitation was accepted without a dissenting voice, the reputation of our city as a good entertainer, having evidently reached the members of that organization. The new commander, Hon. S. A. Cook of Neenali, visited Wausau early in the spring to acquaint our people with the needs of the Convention or rather Encampment, in the way of 'halls and meeting places for the differ ent organizations affiliated with the G. A. It. lie was assured by the citi zens that everything needful would be provided and the city would be in readiness to receive their honored guests. PUBLIC MEETING. Soon thereafter some of the citizens issued a notice for a public meeting, which, however, was not very well at tended, because of the fact that it was so long a time before the event that immediate work was not thought necessary. Nevertheless the meeting was held and the following committee was appointed to make all needful arrangements tor the convenience and comfort of many hundred guests which were expected, viz: LOUIS MAKCHETTI, C. S. INGRAHAM, W. 11. CUKLLIS, M. B. ROSEN BERRY and j. e. young. ORGANIZATION WITH L. MARCIIETTI. CHAIRMAN. The committee met in the first days of April and organized by the election of Louis Marchetti, chairman, and W. 11. Chellis, secretary. After some consultation as to what should be done in the way of decoration and entertainment and probable costs, the chairman was authorized to appoint a committee of finance to provide the funds. The committee was unani mous in the opinion that something better and on a grander scale than ever before should be planned, and it also was of the opinion that on the proper selection of that committee, everything would depend. The diffi culty was happily solved when Mr. Marchetti announced that the follow ing well known gentlemen were to compose that important committee, viz: WALTER ALEXANDER, C. C. YAWKEY, C. S. CURTIS, W. 11. BISSELL, B. F. WIL SON, G. D. JONES, B. lIEINEMANN, M. B. ROSEN BERY, L. A. I’RADT and E HUDTLOFF. WALTER ALEXANDER CHAIRMAN OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE. It was for this committee to obtain the funds necessary, and soon after their appointment, they met and organized with the election of Walter Alexander as chairman, and quietly and without commotion, went to work and secured the amount necessary to carry the undertaking to a successful end. That the entertaiiuent was carried out as planned by the committee of arrangements, was only possible by the active and generous support which they received from the committee on finance. It may justly be said, that one committee planned the entertain ment, and the other provided the means to pay for it. There was not the least friction or misunderstand ing between the members of that committee at any time, and if the encampment passed off to the enjoy ment and gratification of everybody, the committee of finance is as much, if not more entitled to praise, than the corfimittee which simply laid out the program and let the others pay for it. The decorations were planned by Hugo L. Mumm with the aid of the committee. The county generously voted $200.00 for the court house and public square decoration, and the merchants' association agreed to join in the general plan, and in that way there was complete harmony as to decorations and with what success, the public, as well as our guests have given their unqualified approval. WAliSAli, WIS., TIiESPAY, JUNE 22, 1915. The next problem which confronted the arrangement committee was the question of providing quarters for the concourse of guests, for as time passed on and grew nearer, it became evident that the hotel capacity of the city was wholly inadequate to properly take care of the daily growing demand for rooms; and in this dilemma, the “Rotary Club” stepped in and under took the work of finding quarters; and while we cannot mention every one who rendered valuable service, there is one whose work is so conspicu ous, that not to make especial men tion of him would be little less than | j Judge Louis Marchetti, Wausau, Wis., Honorary Member of the State G. A. R. downright uncivility. We have re ference to Alfred Zimmermann who gave more than one full week to that task, and with the aid of his co workers was able to furnish not less than 1800 places where veterans and other guests could be comfortably housed and quartered. That all these places were not needed, by several hundred, is accounted for by the fact that many of the veterans were taken care of by relatives, who took advan tage of their visit to the Encamp ment to entertain them. The “Rotary Club” is entitled to the thankful consideraton of the com mittee of arrangements, who can not say too much in their praise and also for the valuable help rendered by Alfred Zimmermann and Chas A. Cowee in registering the veterans and for three days worked at the head quarters, aiding visitors and supply ing them with their badges, and rail way tickets and placed them in homes while staying here, and whose whole time was given without any compens ation, but prompted solely with the desire to be of assistance and to make the encampment a success in every particular. The campfire, only anotner name for the word “banquet” which was given to the veterans at the Roth schild pavilion, was in charge of M. C. Ewing, who relieved the committee from any anxiety on that score; and it must be said, that the arrangements for the same, in the way of eatables as well as service was not only satisfactory, but highly com mendable. The veterans were im pressed by what was done by our citi zens for their comfort and entertain ment, as will best be seen by the resolution which they adopted, and which is published in connection with this article, and which is the finest compliment ever paid to our city, and all the more valuable, when it is re membered that it was passed by a body of men, the members of the Grand Army of the Republic, who have within their ranks men who are not given to effusive utterances by way of encomiums, but, who also can well differentiate between an honest effort to please and serve them, and one which is simply a colorable one. At the request of the chairman of the committee, the Commander, S. A. Cook, made another visit to Wausau to be consulted about the parade and Mrs. Amanda Wettig, president of the W. R. C., and the presiding offi cers of other affiliated organizations all appeared some weeks prior to the encampment, to make sure that the halls reserved for their meeting places were satisfactory and convenient, and they all expressed themselves as in every way pleased with the arrange ments. and when the day of opening arrived they found their halls ready for occupancy in the center of the city, within easy walking distance from one assembly place to another. The G. A. R. held its session in the Circuit Court room in the court house: the Sons of Veterans in the fine hall of the Knights of Pythias: the First Regiment Cav. association had headquarters in Widmer's store in the business college and general headquarter *vere in Zentner's stores on Third street, all almost within hailing distance of each other. The W. R. C. had as its meeting place in the Methodist church; the Ladies of the G. A.R., the Presbyterian church, OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.

Will Davenport’s ponies rattled around pretty lively among the stumps and logs near the depot on Thursday. The buggy to which they were attached was badly demoralized and the varnish was knocked off sev eral stumps and logs. Will ought to fasten a buckshot somewhere about the harness for ballast. A most sad and distressing accident occurred at Waupaca Sunday, which resulted in the drowning of Miss Anna Cate, oldest daughter of Judge Cate of Stevens Point. Will Drost stepped into J. C.

The Rothschild pavilion is located five miles from here, but was easily readied by the street cars, and trans portation was given to the veterans at the time of their registering, so that they had the benefit of the finely decorated hall, for the camp fire in beautiful surroundings. Everything passetf off according to program with out a hitch, and in spite of the im mense local traffic and the congested condition of the streets during the whole Encampment and especially, immediately before and after the pa rade, not the least accident marred the festivities. MONDAY’S DOINGS. The ‘‘Patriotic Institute” held by the W. R. C.*at the Opera House was greatly enjoyed by a large audience, which filled the building to overflow ing. Mrs. A. Wettig presided. Ad dresses were given by Eliza L. Blum of Waukesha: Cora Lane of Waupaca: Sophia N. Strathearn of Kaukauna, and Sarah E.

These short addresses were distinguished in that each speaker covered a different branch and advanced new ideas. The speak ing generally was of a high order and the ladies made themselves heard clearly and distinctively over the whole house and each address was generously applauded. Miss Cawley, a Wausau student, selected by the Superintendent of Wausau, delivered an essay and was the recipient of a loyalty pin by the W. R. C., after which Henrietta Pease of Lowell, presented, in behalf of the organization, a splendid silk flag to the high school, which was accepted in fitting, eloquent words by Supt. S. B. Tobey. Hon. Chas. F. Sherman, the federal commander of the S. of V., was invited to address the assemblage, and in a short five minutes address electrified the audi ence. Commander S. A. Cook made the last address, full of good advice to people and grand army men in general and his short, humorous stories with which he illustrated his remarks kept his audience almost in a continual state of mirth. He closed his remarks under a round of applause. Besides the music which enlivened the occasion, a feature of the even ing was the singing of Miss Mary Ilarger. Her’s is a soprano of great range, soft and sympathetic, as full and round in the middle register as well as in the high scale, with a per fect voice control. As she came upon the stage, wrapped in the flag, she captured her audience by her very appearance, singing “The Star Span gled Banner,” and her distinct pro nunciation of every word, and ex quisite singing, created unbounded enthusiasm. The audience was not satisfied until she appeared and sang the last stanza again, and retired un der a storm of applause. In her next song, “A Forest Song,” she had selected a number which gave her a chance to display her splendid trained voice to the best advantage, a song which, while exquisitely melo dious, nevertheless requires skill and voice culture to a high degree, and as an encore, rapturously demanded, she gave the familiar “Long, Long. Ago.” It may be truthfully said, that never before was that sweet, melancholy song better interpreted than on this occasion; the voice of the singer floated out into the audience in melli fluous.Jdulcet tones,falling like a charm on the ears of the listeners, reaching into the furthest nooks and corners of the large house, the whole audience (Continued on fourth pure) No. 32—TERMS $1.50 Per Annum HENRY B.

Bump Elected to Head Knights of Pythias. The forty-fourtli annual convention of the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin Knights of Pythias was held in Ra cine the past week closing on Wednes day, Judge Franklin E. Bump of this city was elected Grand chancellor. The following are the balance of the officers: Grand vice chancellor, Judge Franz C. Eschweiler, Milwaukee; grand pre- late, John E. Barron, Eau Claire; grand keeper of records and seal, Orrin Thompson, Milwaukee; grand master of exchequer, Otto C. Knell, Milwaukee; grand master at arms, Herbert E. Swett, Fond du Lac; grand inner guard, M. L. Gregerson, Stoughton; grand outer guard, Henry Staab, Milwaukee; grand trustee, Judge Lawrence W. Halsey, Milwau kee; supreme representative, Richard Warner, Sheboygan. The next con vention will be in Watertown. A GREAT HELP. The roads throughout Marathon county going East and West and North and South will soon be marked to the very border of the county, so that there will be absolutely no doubt as to which direction is being travelled. A white circle will mark the highway from the East to West while a :ed circle will mark North and South. The Yellowstone Trail at Abbotsford will be connected. It is confidently expected that other counties throughout the state will follow this system as the state men approve this manner of marking. The Wausau Advancement Associa tion has its hands full and no doubt as soon as this big task is completed, Secretary Chellis will undertake another useful one. A committee of Joseph Coel, Orin Liljeqvlst, Emel Hochtritt, Henry Pagenkopf, August Kickbusch, Otto Muenchow, Roman Deutsch, Hans Kuschman, Ray Law rence, has been appointed by the directors of the Advancement Asso ciation to make arrangements for the annual picnic, held so that the busi ness men of thiscity can get together in a little social time. The exact date of the picnic lias not yet been determined. INCLEMENT WEATHER The inclement weather of the past three weeks has kept the majority of early summer tourists, campers and those who have cottages, in the cities. The entire spring has been an unusual ly queer one. Generally, April fur nishes most disagreeable weather, with mucli rain, but the present year, April proved to be a most pleasant month, with beautiful sunshiny days, while this month of June has ruined its reputation by the cold, rainy., most unpleasant weather which has prevailed practically through the en tire twenty two days passed thus far. The resorts to the north have had but very few guests and but few cot tages in the lake district have been opened. Fishing remains poor be cause of the chilliness of the air and water. Of course there is another side to the fact, that there have been unpleasant weeks—the farmers' crops have recieved plenty of moisture. What they need now, however, is sunshine. A week of warm weather and we will see the people of this city flocking to the country by tens, twen ties and thirties; also the farmers grains will shoot up in no time. Y. M. C. A. NOTES. An innumerable number of Wausau boys have been taught through Y. M. C. A. swimming classes to swim. This summer at least for a period of a month or more, a swimming class will be conducted for boys under fifteen years of age. The class was started a week ago and arrangements have been made for the use of the pool every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 on. All boys under fifteen are in vited to join and it makes a difference whether they are members of the Y or not. Raymond Johannas has charge o.* the class, which num bers about fifteen. As soon as it in* creases in number several assistants will be secured. Russell H. Starke, Y physical director, who has been spending the past several weeks visiting friends and relatives in York, Neb., and vicinity, returned home the latter part of last week. His wife and daughter, Gene, who were also visit ing, returned with him. Mr. Starke on ids way to Nebraska visited a number of Y. M. C. A. associations in order to see their work. On ills re turn he spent a day at the Chicago Y. M. C. A. Training College. Upwards of forty boys of this city have enrolled to go to the Waupaca Chain o’ Lakes to camp the latter part of August. The local Y lias usually sent about twenty-five boys to the camp but this year fifty are ex pacted to go. Those who have so far determined to go are as follows; Chester Ilartlett, Elvin Bartlett, Dewey Wright, Elmer Larson, Charles Turner, Clyde Hayden, Clement Olson, Gale Meyers, John Sturtevant, Edward Fvanson, Wilbur Ixxlge, Eugene Hoeper, Fowler Stone, Donald Evans, Jimmie Rowley, Roger Wil terding. Mark Splaine, Sam Iledetzki, Earl Lutz, Edward Thayer, Charles Manson, Fred Crocker, Albert Buten hoff, Emery Skinner, Arthur Beilke, Charles Corwith, George Turner, Alford Watson, Ewald Sch Adt, Earl Booth and Walter Bissell. This will undoubtedly be the biggest bunch of boys ever having represented Wau sau at the Onaway Island Camp. FOR RENT. The P. O. Means cottage on Plum lake is for rent.
