Lincoln Post, 0. A. R., to Hold “Bivouacs,, in the Afternoon Instead of Night Although once they camped In the open during the hardest campaigns of history, the members of the Grand Army of the Republic are finding It more und more dlfllcult to face the winter winds and storms at night In order to attend their weekly "bivouacs" In their own snug post rooms. Lincoln Post No. 11, the largest post in the State, hus solved the dif ficulty by changing the time of its meeting from Monday nights, on which the members have gathered together for half a century, to Sat urday afternoons. The bylaws of the post had to be amended to provide for the new ar rangement. A few of the veterans opposed the change for sentimental reasons. Their Monday evenings had become so associated in their minds with the activities of the post and so fraught with pleasant memories that they did not wish any breaking away from the old precedents. The opinion of the majority, how ever, was that the Increasing feeble ness of so many of the veterans made it wiBer for them to hold their re unions in the afternoons. Next Saturday, for the first time, the post’s campfire will be lit by day. Holy Name Banquet Plans Are Completed for Tonihgt The second, annual banquet of the Federation of Holy Name Societies.

Beeken, the Colby cam paign manager who was elected to the Ananias Club by Repbllcan State Chairman Bugbee, made the retort courteous today In a letter, reiterat ing his charges that a very large amount of money must have been ex pended In behalf of former Governor Stokes during the pre-election light. The letter follows: “I have read your somewhat be lated burst of virtuous indignation. I use the word 'belated' advisedly, for, as you must have known, during the campaign the air was full of charges about the use of money by the Re publicans. These charges did not originate with me: they were the com mon talk wherever men met. So much so, In fact, that both Governor Field er and Everett Colby publicy called attention to them in their speeches. Colby also challenged Stokes to pub lish his campaign expenses before the election. “Then, If ever, was the time to set the public mind at rest on tho sub ject, and the burden of doing this was upon Mr. Stokes. The only practical way to kill the rumors was to pub lish the expenditures, and this Mr. Stokes refused to do, and he should not be heard now to complain that he has been misrepresented, If he has been. I may say, however, that your post-mortem Is not convincing. “Now these rumors were not based on thin air. There certainly was enough tangible evidence that plenty of money was being used. Mr. Stokes was advertised like a patent medi cine from one end of the State to the other—in newspapers, on bill posters on sign-boards. In street cars, along the railroad tracks, etc. This, aside from the so-called 'fako letter' sent broadcast over the State. And, by the way, you seem to have a choice collection of epithets; how would you characterize a man, running for the great office of Governor, who sends out ‘fake’ personal letters to thou sands, stating In substance that ‘You have been mentioned to me as a man of Influence, etc., when as n matter of fact the vast majority of such persons must have been un known to him. I have Been it stated In the papers, by Governor Fielder, I believe, that this little 'fake' letter alone cost $16,000. I haven’t seen that denied. The spending of money for this purpose was shameless. This letter was not a political document— it contained no political argument. It was an attempt to make a lot of simple-minded folk believe that they %vere getting a personal letter from Mr. Stokes. 11 was mienutni wi iu iuni vanity. "But in addition to the above how much money was spent In the coun ties bv Mr. Edge and the machine In Atlantic; by Mr. Baird and the ma chine In Camden; by Uncle Dan Voor hees in Morris; by Ham Kean in Union: by Dory Strong in Middlesex; bv Ace Francis und Joe McDermott in Monmouth; by Joseph Hoff and Tom Mathis in Ocean; by Morris Davis and Doc Thompson in Cum berland; by John Rotherham in Hud son: by Jack Fla veil and Franklin Murphy’s henchmen in Essex; by Ed Wakelee and hie crowd in Bergen; by ex-Sheriff Allen in Salem; by Tony Kuser. General Murray and your other friends In Mercer? “X agree with you that falsehood doesn’t make statesmanship. I think that was proved when the voters re fused to accept Mr. Stokes's state ment that he was a Progressive. “And. before I forget it, let me say that this Ananias Club which you have started is the only real evidence I have seen that the Republican party means to follow Roosevelt. "But. my friend, don't forget that the delicate intimation about my veracity, which you have clothed in such exquiBite language, and con veyed in such tactful grave, applies lust as much to Governor Fielder and Everett Colby as it does to me."
