ECHOES OF THE ANTE > ROOM The state encampments of the Sons Veterans and the Daughters of Vctera which were held In this city during the ji week , ( ltd ono thing that was of general tcrcst to the people of Omaha. This c slated In the Instructions given to the di gates to the national encampment to do In their power to bring those big gatherl to this city In the exposition year. 1 the 1 matter assumes Importance from that the action will mark the beginning n moil active campaign to capture tbo mi Ings. Ings.Tho Sons of Veterans' encampment naturally the bigger nnd more Importanl the two conventions. H will bring thousa of delegates and visitors to the city. Sc dea of the size of the crowd * In nttenda can bo gained when It Is said that the i 'ormed men that come to the encampm number 0,000 or more. In point of numl ho encampment would be one of the ( conventions of the exposition year , and fit would undoubtedly r t the merchants great benefit. Kvcr since the exposition scheme broached the local members of the or lave been laying wires to capture this tlonal meeting. The state meeting was talned for this city In great measure n step toward the SUCCCM of the scheme , was believed that If the state encampm vero brought to Omaha the delegates could ro Imnresrtcd with the Importance nnd m iltudc of the exposition that they would E Instructions to the strongest possible Iclegates. The value of the plan demonstrated , because the two delegE every legitimate men were ordered to use n their power to bring the gathering this city. The Omaha memUers went Into the com tlnn with the Intention of having Seni selected as one of lolm M. Thurston lelcgates. and in this they were also i eessful. The senator has already flgnl Us willingness to assnnn the olllco. other dslcgatc Is J. A. Collins of 1-rem ast year's secretary of the state enca ment. nnd one of the best known member ho order In the state. The local members realize that n g task lies in front of them , and they In begun preparations for therefore , already onslaught. TliQ national encampment lot be held until August , but It Is consldi that the time Is none too long. This ye neetlng will occur In Indianapolis. Among other things , It Is Intended tin special train of Omaha people shall gc the encampment to work for the convent Tills project Is being pushed by Crook ca and more particularly by John G. Kuht that body. It Is Intended that the c : shall go In a body and be accompanied the Woman's Aid society , that lias just t organized. In addition to this contlnRon s believed tint many of the members In o parts of the state will be Induced to go ah The two conventions of the Sons Daughters of Veterans were very succcs and harmonious. Possibly the attend ! was not as gocfl as It might have- been , any lack In this regard was fully made .n . enthusiasm. The columns of The D [ ! ee have given prominence to both meetl ind this column will , therefore , dismiss meetings with but a few words. None of the business transacted by ell jody was of any great Importance , Daughters" were almost entirely oecui n delineating for the Increase of tbc 01 n every way. A few changes in the p cnt constitution and system were made , ; hey were not of any particular Inter The discussions were only lively enougl make the sessions Interesting and v without acrimony. The Sons of Veterans did quite a 11 business , but this has already been notl ns the sessions occurred. Possibly jlggest innovation was in the establlshir of a relief fund for funeral expenses and rendering assistance to the families of. ceased brothers. This fund will be kept jy 'an assessment of 50 cents on each mem whenever a death occurs. The plan state divisions and : > een tried by other aeon found successful. The attempt to corporate a regular Insurance dcpartni n the order failed. Another Innovation was inaugurated both bodies in deciding to meet next yea ; [ he same time and place with the Gr Army of the Republic , the Woman's He corps and the Ladies of the Grand Arm ; the Republic. Thus the big patriotic on will mcej together next year. The cnca ments and meetings will occur at Nor : seine tlmo during the early part of 1 niary. They have never In the history of state been held together , but the sys lias been In vogue In other states. The Sons of Veterans elected the fallov olllcers : Commander , W. H.

The Foresl will give a hop at their hall In the Mcrr block , Council Ulufts , Tuesday even March 2 , nnd from the way the Invltatl nre being accepted they will have a crow house. H goes without saying that all ' attend will have a good time. The Mod Woodmen of Omaha have been Invited , many have signified their Intention of tending. "Tho accounts of the trouble tween Rock Island nnd Fulton , over the headquarters of the Mod Woodmen of America sent brondi by the A&occlnted press are misleading , therefore I would llko to state the follow facts , " says P. 0. Schroder of Maple canii | this city. "The article referred to was gl to the Asscclt.tcd press by the Dasl brothers of Fulton. 111. One Is the publla of n dally parer , nnd the other Is postmu at that place. They are In a position send out the Associated press dispatch , wl look ? -bad , on the face of It , when as n ma of fact the Modern Woodmen cannot placed In the hands of a receiver for such cause , as the order has now In benefit fund a surplus of $147,500 , nnd in than $200,000 In Its general fund. The dlst court at Fulton decided In favor of Modern Woodmen , granting permission move to Rock Island , III. , as per vote of Omaha hoa-1 camp meeting , November , 1 nnd confirmed by the Madison , WIs. , h camp session In 1S95. Immediately n this meeting the officers attempted to movi Rock Island , when A. W. Hastlan secured Injunction , which held the head office Fulton. The head officers appealed the c. . nnd In due t'tno ' the Injunction wns dlssoli Mr. Dastlati then took an appeal to appellate court , and again the order caino victorious. The Rock Island people t agreed to move the records and furnltun the ordc'- free of charge , and took their < train to Fulton In good faith and for no ot purpose. The Fultonltcs prevented the moval of the furniture by turning city wi on the Rock Island people , and A. W. Hasl in the meantime took an appeal to the Un States court to further delay the remo A. W. Hastlan was at one time one ot head officers of the order with J. C. Root , was ono of the parties ngainst whom ; wns brought , during the stormy days 1S80-DO. On that account there has alw been a bad feeling- between him nnd present head officers , and on account the head office being located at Fulton , salary of A. W. Haatlan as poatma ; amounts to about $3,600 a year. Should head oirtce be removed , the receipts of poMofllco would be cut down at least c half and the salary of-the postmaster we suffer a corresponding- reduction , hence can.nHord to spend $100 or $500 to delay removal until thexplratlon of his term postmuatcr.
