Sessions of the IL C. V.
New Orleans, May 19.-The thir?
teenth annal reunion of the United
Confedelrate Veterans was opened in
the great auditorium at the fair
grounds today at noon.
.. ? The weather was perfect and all the
arrangements by the local ' entertain?
ment committees the most successful.
There were thousands of veteran sol?
diers, hundreds of beautiful women
and above and around oh every hand a
profusion of fluttering l?ags, ^aad wav?
ing streamers. There was martial
music without limit and enthusiasm
unbounded. Over the beauty and .suc?
cess of the day there was but a single
shadow, - and that promises to disap?
pear before the mornning. This was
She illness o? Gen.Gordon, the com
mandler-in-chief pf the organization.
^pHe was not well , when he left his
.? hotel for the' auditorium and has not
been in his usual heatlh: for several
days. ; His strength was not in reality
sufficinet for. the ordeal to which he
subjected himself and before the close
of the owning session he was a great?
ly wearied man. 'Nothing but his
grim fighting spirit carried him
thro?igh the day without something:
akin to a collapse. He was not able
to attend the afternoon session, at the
auditorium,-and remained quietly in
.his room at the hotel, rscieving no
visitors. His condition is in no man?
der serious, but it is possible that he
may not be able tb preside at all the
sessions at the auditorium between
now and Friday noon. He expects,
however, to be present tomorrow.
When the hour for opening the con
Ipvention arrived ' the platform . was
crowded with fair women and men
whose names are household words
throughout the south. Gen; -Gordon
was, delayed somewhat in reaching the
grounds and his entrance into th? hall
was an ovation* Cheer after cheer
rang through' the* building as he " came
rapidly down the -aisles leaning On the
. arm of-Adjt Gen. Mickle. He was
surrounded instantly by a group of
iriends as he reached .the rostrum arid
-for a time was unable to ' reach his
No sooner was he seated than a fair j
young woman,. Miss Tarlton,, of Waco, !
Tex., approached and bending down j
kissed the general, fie sprang quickly >
> to his feet to . acknowledge the honor ,
;vith repeated-bows.
Gen. J. B. "Levert, commander of
the Louisiana division of the Confed- ,
erate veterans, called the assembly to
order and introduced the champlain
general, $?ev. J. William Jones, who !
delivered an eloquent invocation.
Then, in succession came speeches of
welcome to the veterans: from Paul
Capdevielie, mayor 'of New Orleans ;
Loys Charbounet, who spoke for the
local organization of the Sons of Vet?
erans; Mrs. William J. Behan, repre?
senting the Confederate ; -Southern
Memorial association, and Gov. W.
Wi Heard, who spoke for the people
of the State of Louisiana. After a few
opening words of welcome the gover-^
nor said:
'. ' Veterans, the outcome of the strug?
gle that you carried oa for four long
years against the mostpowerful forces
and armaments that the world has yet
seen, in no manner or sense can ob
B^scx^re the glory and ?ame triat you vron
: for Dixie's land. With a total enlist?
ment of 600,000 you confronted 2,800,
O00. Of these in round numbers 500,
000 were of foreign birth and had
Europe been* in' formal alliance with
the north, it eouM scarcely,ha ve been
expected to send more than ' this num
. ber of its organized soldiery ? for its
^quota in such ?' condition. Consider?
ing the 200,000 negro soldiers, the 500, -
000 foreign soldiers and the 2,-100,000
native Americans, it -is not extrava?
gant to say that ,the 600,000; Confeder?
ates confronted a coalition of America,
Europe and-Africa. - >
4 ' When we' consider ?hese indisputa?
ble facts we cannot but hav? commis
seration for the-person who would seek
to detract f foin" tue' un paralleled resis?
tance made by the armies in gray, by
impugning the motives by which they
were impelied^to make this truly leg?
endary j defense of their homes and
constitutional'rights as ?fcey construed
these rights to be. "

by repeating the welcome of the peo?
ple of Louisiana. '??$':%i-.?$fm

As Gen. Gordon rose to reply bte was
enthusiastically cheered. [ }
Gen. John B. Gordon said in part:
"To my thought it is' most fitting
that this proud and .patriotic organi?
zation should meet, again in this his?
toric city which gave it birth. The
meeting of such m?n as you welcome
today, whose past deeds, will remain
forever an inspiration to American
valor and to fature, sacrifices for con?
stitutional freedom,, is an auspicious
event in the country's history, when- I
ever and wherever it may occur; but ?
.how pecitfiariy inspiring is this renn- j
ion in Louisiana, on this 100th anni-*
versary cf her birth into governmental j
alliance with American States. A !
Roman eye would have discovered in ?
a meeting o? such men, at such time,
an omen of good to the cause of liber?
ty ; and, American eyes should see in
it nothing bat good to the whole re?
public? lt must of ?necessity be b?n??

not indulge on ^thi? centennial-this

none. We pity those wljio do. We have I
long since drawn the curtuin of obliv- !

things of the paAs; and we cherish

At the conclusion of Gen. Gordon
address he turned to greet a la<

spoke from one portion of the rostron

silent and to allow Gen. Gordon 1
Mr. Reagan, spoke but briefly: af ti
this, and an adjournment. was take
until afternoon. Immediately th
mobbing of Gen. Gordon was resume
with .. redoubled . energy. }One ol
soldier, /intoxicatedly his enthusiast*
sank oh hi& knees/ before the .geneis
and would' have hugged him had he
the bystanders interfered.
The oration of Judge Rogers coi
sumed the entire afternoon'session.
His address, which was remarkabl
well delivered, was a brilliant success
New Orleans, La, May 20.- Today'
session of the Confederate Reuni?
closed with a prayer. The first word
of the petition for Divine guidance an
blessing were .spoken by the chap?ai
while the echoes of taps, " the mos
sad and yet the most beautiful of al
bugle calls,.' were yet quivering in th
air., For this was the day, a portio:
of which had been set apart for sei
vices in honor of the hero dead of th
Confederate cause, for the glorificatio:
of their deeds, for the hallowing o
their memories, for the sanctificatio;
bf the cause for which they lived an
died. The tribute was most ampi:
rendered. It Was offered in the bum
lug:words of the orator and the fier,
plauuirs of his hearers; they . sav
again through him the martial prowls
of their broth?rs who have joined th
eternal .muster. It was tendered ii
the sobs of beautiful women and in th
self-contained grief of stalwart men
when it. was borne home to them one
more that the comrades they so deepl;
loved, the .leaders so highly honored
could be nothing to them but a price
less memory.
Tlie memorial services were opene(
promptly " at 12 o'clock by Gen
Gordon, who said:
" And now? my comrades, the ap
pointed time has come for the service!
in honor of cur immortal dead, ant
: for the opening of these exercises]
; believe we shoula give thanks to Al
niighty God for the li ves they li vee
and ask. His benediction for them anc
us for the time to come. I am going
to ask Gen. Young, of Kentucky, tc
lead us in, prayer. " "
Gen. Young offered an eloquent in?
vocation and was followed by Gen. J.
Ai i Chalaron, who read a eulogy on
the late adjutant general of the United
Confederate Veterans, George Moor?
man, of New Orleans. Gen. Cabel]
followed in a brief address, in which
fae ; paid a warm tribune to the i late
adjutant general. The " resolutions
were adopted by a silent rising vote.
Gen. "Gordon then introduced the
JRev. J. J. Finley, of Fisher vi lie,
Va,- who delivered tne annual memori?
al, .sermon. It was a strong address,
feWid in its patriotism, replete with
joying words' fdr the dead and-bright
promises of hope for the South that is
and the South that is yet -'to be. He
moved, his hearers tb frequent applause
and several times brought many' of
them tb tears. *? >'The Vacant Chair"
was played softly by the band and then
"taps" was blown. A short prayer
by Chaplain Gen. Jones brought the
memorial exercises to a close and an
ad journment- was taken until tomorrow
morning at 9 o'clock.
Prior to the memorial exercises the
financial report of Adjt. Gen. Mickle
was presented and approved, show?
ing for the fiscal year the following
receipts: Camp dues, SI.212; commis?
sions and certificates of membership,
831 ; donations, $838. Total, $2,081.
Disbursements were $1,267, leaving a
balace of $814.
|The report of the historical com?
mittee, which was of considerable
length, was read by Gen. J. J. Horner
and Gen. S. D. Lee by turns. It dealt
exhaustively with the efforts of the
committee to secure an impartial his?
torical record for the South and made
a series of recommendations regarding
various publications, praising some and
condemning others, lt was adopted
without dissent.
. Following the presentation of the
committee reports NV. P. Lane, of Tex?
as, a member of the Sons of Veterans, I
presented the greetings ot bis organiza?
tion to the ;olcer body and created .
much enthusiasm among the Veterans
by the energy of his sentiments and
. the force.of bis delivery. .
j When he had ceased speaking Gen.\
C. I. Walker, of South Carolina, j
moved'that a committee of five be ap- j
pointed to arrange for a closer rela
tionship between the Sons o? Veterans
and the parent organization, i
Gen. Gordon appointed as members.
Gen. C. L Walker, Gen. B.
Young, Gen. Robert Wliite, Gen.
A. Webb and Gen. W. P. Tarry.

Gen. Cabell, rising to his feet, " ti
the Trans-Mississippi department
represented on that committee. 1
have by far the largest camp of Sc
of Veterans in the South and I th i
we should be represented."
"I guess there will be no objecti
to that," said Gen. Gordon, and
named as additional members Ge
Van Zans and Gen. Felix Robertsc
of the Trans-Mississippi departmei
"Gen. Gordon! Gen Gordon
shouted a delegate. ,
"What is it, comrade?" asked t
"That committee is all generals;

-The motion was promptly second
and carried, and the General said :

the General.
"All right, Alabama; let's have

"Well, the commander-in-chief wi
assume the responsibility of puttii
an Alabama private on that committ
at a later time. "
Gen. Gordon then introduced to tl
Convention Miss Lucy L.. Hill,

She was accorded j& most enthusiast

vention, the hour for the memori
service having arrived.

? Gen. Joseph Wheeler arrived tods
to take part in the. Reunion and "wi
remain until it is ended.
New Orleans, May 21.- The actu
business of the Confederate rennie
was brought to an end today and tl
delegates adjourned sine die at noon.
Gen; Gordon vwas ie-elected COD
mand?r-in-ehief ^and all the depar
ment Commanders, Gens. Lee, Walk?
and Cabell, were at tlie same tin
chosen to fill for another year ti
offices they have held so long. A
th?' elections were unanimous and we:
made by one shout of "aye." Tl
place of holding the next Rennie
was left to the executive committee
It will be held in Louis ville, NasI
ville or St. Louis. It is the desire <
the officials of the organization i
arrange matters so that a single rai
road, rate will allow the delegates to a
tend the Runion and . visit the World
Fair at St. Louis, either [going c
coming. In tlie absence of ac
definite agreement with the railroac
and their ianbility to say what coul
be done. the. department, commande;
asked that the entire matter be left 1
the executive council' for a final d<
cisi?n after consultation .with the rai
road officials. Their wish was grante
by a unanimous vote.
Gen. Stephen D. Lee presided i
the openin?Tsession of the Reunion, i

mained in his room at -the hotel t
gain as much strength as possible fe
the ordeal of the parade tomorrow
The attendance was smaller than s
any previous session, though the ha
was well filled before the time for ac
journment. The committee on CK
dentials reported that there was
total of 1,523 camps" represented at th
reunion, with 2,423 properly accredit
ed delegates. The report was anani
mously adopted.
Gen. A. P. Stewart presented a re
port covering his connection with th
project to erect a monument to th
women of the South. Gen. Stew?i
reported that ?t tlie Memphis Reuni?:
in 1901 he had been made treasurer c
the fund, but had later resigned hi
position in favor of a firm which ha?
been previously appointed for the sam
purpose. He announced he had a furn
amounting to $202, which he was pre
pared to turn over to the committee
unless it should be otherwise orderei
by the Convention. The matter, upoi
the suggestion of Gen. Lee, went ove:
until a later time for action.
The report of The Battle Abbe:
Committee waschen offered, by Gen
Clement A. Evans. :He had ^aid bu
? a; few words .when G?n. Jpsep?i Wheel
i er>came into the hall,'.and for a fev
minutes it was all over with the Bat
tie Abbey report, while the delegatei
cheered a welcome to the little com
' mander. .' ?. . > '. -, . ,
Gen. Wheeler,' after reaching the
rostrum; made:a short address; He
urged upon his hearers the necessity
of providing for the needy and1 aged
soldiers of the. Confederacy^ suggest
in that the best way to bring about
this .vvas through the -various ?State
L?gislatures. ' '
At the conclusion of Gen. Wheeler's
speech Gen. Evans resumed the read?
ing of the Battle Abbey report. :He
announced that the cash in,: hand and
in immediate prospect amounts to
$204,471. Of this amount $104,471 is
cash in bank, $40,000 is the remaining
portion of the Rouss donation, $50,000
has been donated by the city of Rich?
mond and $10,000 by individual resi?
dents of that place.
The committee, therefore, recom?
mended that, as $200,000, the mini?
mum amount desired for the, erection
of the Abbey, had been secured, the
time had arrived for the commence?
ment of the work. Tlie report was
Dr. G. H. Tichenor, for the South?
ern Memorial Association, reported
that the fund for the erection of a
monument to Jefferson Davis had
been finally secured. The announce?
ment was received with tremendous
applause, ile urged in addition that
the plan to erect a monument to the
women of the South be taken up with
A delegate from Texas asserted that
he wished to see a monument erected
to the private soldiers, claiming that
none existed. Ile was promptly snowed
under by the declaration that they,
existed all ov?r the South, three - bf
them being in his own State. H.T.
Davenport, of Americus, Ga., declared
rhat tiie private soldier built a monu?
ment to himself when he built one
for Jefferson Davis, lie declared that
Mr. Davis was a patriot and Abraham
Lincoln a traitor to the country, and
that the Davis monument should' be
erected at once.
Judge Christian, of the Davis monu?
ment committee, announced that all
the money required to build the me?
morial was not yet in hand. The com?
mittee desired at least $75,000 and
it had but $57,000.
Mr. Davenport insisted that it
would be a disgrace to erect a monu?
ment costing less than $1,000,000. He
was promptly ruled out of order.
The committee on resolutions re?
ported favorably on a resolution offer?
ed by Gen. S. D. Lee, expressing the
thanks and appreciation of the Con?
federate Veterans to Congress and to
Secretary of War Koot for the offer of
the National Government to prepare
a roster of all the soldiers of both
sides during the civil war.
Gen. Joseph Wheeler spoke strongly
in favor of the resolution, saying he
had the assurance pf the Secretary of
War that all original documents sent
to the war department would be care?
fully copied and returned. An amend?
ment was offered to the resolution by
Taylor Stratton, of Richmond, pro?
viding that three commissioned officers
of the Confederacy be added, if possi?
ble, to the committee in charge of the
preparation of the roster, in order to
insure fair treatment of the Confeder?
ate soldier. This brought Gen. Lee to
the front in an impassioned appeal for
the passage of the resolution. He de?
clared the offer itself was a proof.'of
the integrity of the Government The
resolutions were then passed. The
selection of the place for the reunion
of 1904 was taken up. Gen. B. BL
Young, of Louisville, offered a motion
that the selection of the city be left
to ' the executive committee, wi^h
power to select a city at some future
time. Gen. Hickman, of Nashville,
seconded the motion, saying it was de?
sired to see if arrangements, could not
be made whereby the railroads could
be induced to great a rate which
would permit the delegates to attend
the reunion and at the same time go
to St. Louis for the World's Fair.
Gen. Gordon, who was. late in arriving
in. the hall explained the matter, and
the resolution* was carried, leaving
the selection of the city to the execu?
tive commitee.
A resolution was adopted providing
that ho person be chosen sponsor for a
Confederate camp unless the wife or
lineal descendant of an honorably dis?
charged Confederate soldier or sailor.
A resolution urging moderation in
the expense by cities entertaining . the
Veterans was adopted. Gen.' Young,
speaking for Louisville, said that this
city would not permit the Association
to limit its hopitality. The resolution
was adopted with the understanding
that entertaining cities could do ks
they chose, but that the Veterans will
be satisfied with less pomp than has
characterized the last few reunions.
Gen. C. L Walker, from the com?
mittee appointed to established closer
relations between the veterans and
sons or veterans .reported a plan for
the affiliation of the two bodies,
which was adopted. \
The plan provides that at: all re?
unions the Sons of Veterans shall have
the full privileges of the floor, but
without the right to vote. That in all
parades the Sons shall be the especial
escort of the Veterans.
That camps of the United Veterans
be authorized to euroli the Sons in as?
sociate membership.
That the Sons be uniformed in Con?
federate gray, but without insignia
of rank, and that all military titles
be abolished among them.
The time for the election of officers
having arrived, all former officials were
elected by acclamation.
: Following the election of officers,
brief addresses of thanks were made by
Gens. Gordon, Lee, Cabell ?nd Walk?
er. Addresses were also made by Gen.
Francis T. Nicholls, of Louisiana;
Governor Frazier, of Tennessee ; Gen.
George W.' Gordon, of Nashville, and
Ex-Governor Robert Lowry, of Mis?
sissippi. Thea came Gen. Gordon,
who, responding to repeated calls,
came to the front of the plaform and
said: -' * .
.'Boys, I am willing to spend and be
spent in .your servic?, but I'm just
about spent. All I can say now is,
that you boys must not die until yen
have built that monument to. southern,
women. *
Build it white and pure, and let it
tower. to show what the, mer/of .the
South think of-the women."
_Gen. Bennett H. Young, of Louis?
ville, declared that Kentucky "h?d
built thirty-four monuments to Con?
fed?rate dead and none to Feeral dead.
He also strongly urged the erection of
a woman's monument.K j ;. -, f J
. The Convention 'then-, adjourned
sine _die.
The last feature of the Reunion will
be -fthe. great- parade . tomorrow^
scheduled .to move -at 3' p. m.; Ela?
borate preparations-have'" been ; mad?
for the event and it is expected to
surpass anything of the kind ever
seen jin the South.. It is estimated that
fully; % 000 men will'be in line. ' Un/'
fortunately, it is predicted iDy the
weather bureau that the ideal condi?
tions which have existed will not last
throughout tomorrow and the fore?
cast is for "occasional showers."
Rain or shine, however, the parade
will be held.
