The condition of pur treasury has
always beeni mentioned In this report
and although many of our treasurers,
without any fault of their own, have
'been compelled to report a deficit, I am
both proud and glad to inform tho
league at the opening of this meeting
that with all obligations cared for tho
league is out of debt, and the treasurer
thas in his hands a small balance on
tho right side of the ledger.
Much pralso for this is due our
friends In Cincinnati, who so nobly
and generously cared for tho conven

year ago, contributing even more than
could, Trader any construction, bo re
quired of thorn, and by so doing keep

fortune nas led them to enter its gates.
