Full text of "Proceedings of the ... annual encampment"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search

I. The Annual Inspection of the Posts of this Department will take 
place between September 15th and December 1st, under the direction and 
supervision of Department Inspector Alexander F. Nicholas. 

Upon receipt of this Order the Assistant Inspector-at-Large will at 
once arrange the details for the inspection so that the work may be prop- 
erly performed. Assistant Inspectors will forward their reports imme- 
diately after each inspection to the Assistant Inspector-at-Large in 
charge of the District who will examine the same, and if approved, so 
endorse and forward them to the Department Inspector, Alexander F.

ger and the files of General Orders from National and Department Head- 
quarters. Reports must not be made in lead pencil. 

Assistant Inspectors are requested to make a special inspection of the

means that the Post receiving this Order so marked is delinquent.

ment, for the proper reception of Assistant Inspectors, etc., is trans- 
mitted herewith.

dance of the Comrades. The great benefit intended to be secured by an

tance.

IN MEMORIAM 

Regretful announcement is made of the death of 

COL. ELI G. SELLERS 

who* died at Philadelphia, Penna., August 18, 1905. Comrade Sellers 
entered the service in the War for the suppression of the Rebellion, Sep- 
tember 2, 1861, as Captain of Company G, Ninety-first Regiment Penna. 
Volunteer Infantry, promoted to Lieutenant Colonel, October 31, 1864. 
Mustered out with the Regiment, July 10, 1865. 

In the earliest days of the Grand Army of the Republic (1868) he became 
a member of Post No. 8, and was Commander of that Post in 1870. He 
was noted for the effective work performed by him, in placing the Post 
in the formost rank of the Department. 

He was faithful as a Department Officer, having served for a period of 
twelve consecutive years as a member of the Council of Administration. 
His memory will ever be honored, as a splendid specimen of the Amer- 
ican Volunteer Soldier, and for the earnest work performed in behalf of 
our organization. 



By Command of J. ANDREW WILT, 
Department Commander. 
CHAS. A. SUYDAM, 
Assistant Adjutant General.

Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 

Philadelphia, October 29, 1905. 
General Orders, 
No. 6. . 

I. The Department Commander takes this opportunity to congratulate 
the Comrades of this Department upon the large attendance from Penn- 
sylvania at the recent National Encampment held in Denver, the Com- 
rades participating in the parade to the number of six hundred, by their 
adherence to the uniform of the Department, by their splendid marching, 
soldierly bearing and discipline, added to the reputation of the Depart- 
ment, which has so long been recognized as a model. 

II. The Representatives are to be commended for their faithful at- 
tendance at the sessions of the Encampment and the Department Com- 
mander feels a just pride in making this fact known. 

Especial thanks are due and are hereby tendered to Lieut. James M. 
Lysle Post No. 128, of Allegheny, for its escort to the Department Head- 
quarter Specal Train, and to the Department on parade. The splendid 
music of the "Grand Army Band" which accompanied Post 128, was an 
attractive feature. 

III. Copies of the printed proceedings of the Thirty-ninth Annual En- 
campment held at Reading, June 7th and 8th, 1905, have been mailed to 
each Post Commander. 

IV. The Department Commander has been in attendance at many re- 
unions of County and District Associations, and is pleased to note the 
fact that these gatherings have been very largely attended, and of a 
most enjoyable character; he desires to thank all with whom he came 
in contact for their courteous fraternal greeting. 

V. The fall and winter work is now before us, the annual inspections, 
With the larger attendance, should be pro'ductive of much good; with an 
effort on the part of each Officer and Comrade, many that at one time 
Were connected with the order, could once again be brought into member- 
Bhip, and many of those who have never connected themselves with any 
Post, could be placed on the roll. Let there be an effort in this direc- 
tion through the entire Department. 

VI. At the Thirty-ninth National Encampment held at Denver, Penn- 
sylvania led all other Departments In the amount contributed to the 
fund for the erection of a Memorial to Comrade Dr. Stephenson, the 
founder of the Grand Army of the Republic. Additional subscriptions

were there pledged from Departments toward that proposition; among 
one of the subscriptions pledged and paid was that from Mr. Z. G. Sim- 
mons of Kenosha, Wisconsin $2,500.00. This gentleman is not a member 
of our organization, but a wealthy and patriotic citizen. This donation 
places Wisconsin ahead of all other Departments. As but one-third of 
the Posts of this Department have contributed to this fund, the Depart- 
ment Commander urges upon the Posts that have not done so to at 
once take action in that direction, that the Memorial can be an assured 
fact in the very near future. Send your contribution to Gen. Louis Wag- 
ner, Treasurer, Third National Bank, Philadelphia. 

VII. In accordance with the action of the Thirty-ninth National En- 
campment so providing. Chief Mustering Officer, Chas. O. Smith, is ap- 
pointed "Department Patriotic Instructor." 

VIII. J. C. Frederick, Post No. 190, is hereby appointed Chief Mus- 
tering Officer, vice Chas. O. Smith. 

IX. It has been a long established rule in this Department, that 
appeals to Posts for funds for various purposes, should have the ap- 
proval of the Department Commander. Attention has been called to the 
fact that appeals are now being made to Posts for funds to assist in the 
erection of county Monuments to the memory of the Soldiers and 
Sailors in the late war for the suppression of the Rebellion. This appeal 
is without the approval of the Department Commander. In his opinion 
the movement is unwise, for the rear.on that the County Commissioners 
of the several counties of this Commonwealth are directed under certain 
conditions to erect such monuments (see pamphlet laws 1903, page 136). 
In several counties this has been done under said law. In some instances 
Posts of the county have contributed to the fund provided by the county, 
to add to the adornment of the monuments, and it is not fair that the 
Comrades should be solicited to contribute to this object in other coun- 
ties. 

VII. The following additional appointments are announced, to be 
Aides-de-Camp. 

D. W. Laws Post No. 27, Philadelphia. 

Albert Ritter " 76, Reading. 

C. C. Fawcett, " 181, Braddock. 

Daniel Cramer, *• 566, Rawlinsville. 

They will be obeyed and respected accordingly. ■

Department Commander.

held at the first meeting of the Post in December. 

II. Enclosed herewith are blank forms A and B, Adjutant's and Quar-

Alternates. The blank credentials (two copies enclosed) should both be

filled with names plainly written. One copy must be forwarded to these 
Headquarters immediately after the Post election, and the other copy be 
presented by the Post Commander to the Assistant Adjutant General, at 
the meeting of the Committtee on Credentials, on the day before the 
first session of the Fortieth Annual Department Encampment, and the 
reports of the Adjutant and Quartermaster, with the per capita tax, 
must be forwarded immediately following the last meeting of the Post 
in December. Especial care should be exercised in giving the names, 
commands, etc., as suggested by the head lines in the blanks. The 
figures in red ink in the Adjutant's report must not be changed; they 
represent the number of members in good standing reported by the 
Post for term ending June 30th. Postal card herewith enclosed is for 
use in making a correct roster of Posts. Fill up and mail immediately 
after the installation of ofiUcers. 

III. The Department Commander desires to impress upon Post Com- 
manders the fact that it is their duty to give personal attention to the 
prompt forwarding of all reports and per capita tax for the term ending 
December 31st. All money orders, checks and drafts, for per capita tax 
should be made payable to John L#. Grim, Assistant Quartermaster Gen- 
eral, and forwarded to Chas. A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General. 

IV. The Department Commander notes with pleasure the large num- 
ber of Comrades, and the interest manifested, at his many visits to 
Posts and reunions that he has had the pleasure of attending recently. 
In his judgment there cannot be too many of these gatherings, and he 
suggests that at least quarterly there should be a reunion of the Com- 
rades of the Post. Invite at such times Comrades who at one time had 
been on the Post roll, 'those who had never connected themselves with 
the Order, get into close touch, and the results will be both surprising 
and gratifying. 

V. The following new Post has been mustered: 

Corporal A. J. Grim Post No. 640, at Spring City, Chester Co., on 
November 3, 1905, by Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General, 
Arthur Bennett, Commander. 



VI. It is with sadness that the Department Commander announces 
the death of 

PAST JUNIOR VICE DEPARTMENT COMMANDER I. H. SEEHOLTZ. 
As a soldier in the war for the preservation of the Union, and as a Com- 
rade of the Grand Army of the Republic, his record was one in which 
all can take Just pride. "We shall miss him."

INFORMATION WANTED. 

Former members of 3rd and 4th Regiments, Penna. Reserves, are re- 
quested to send their names and P. O. addresses to John N. Reber, S. W. 
Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Sts., Phila., Penna., that their names can be 
placed* on the rolls of the respective Associations and be advised of the 
time of the dedication of the monuments to be erected by the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania, on the Battlefield of Antietam. 



Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
' Grand Army of the Republic. 

S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 
Philadelphia, December 8, 1905. 
General Orders, 
No. 8. 

I. National and Department Countersigns are enclosed with this order. 
By direction of the Commander-in-Chief, they go into effect on January 
1st, 1906. Posts who do not receive them are delinquent. 

II. Post Officers elected to serve during 1906 must be installed at the 
first stated meeting in January, or at a special meeting called for that 
purpose, as near the date of the regular meeting as may be possible. 

III. The Department Commander is impressed with the beneficial 
results of open Installations and whenever jKJSsible, he recommends that 
this feature be adopted. If the Post hall is too small to accommodate 
their families and the many friends of the Post, court houses, churches 
or other large rooms could no doubt be obtained for the purpose. Make 
this event one of interest and pleasure to the comrades and the com- 
munity. 

IV. On the recommendation of Comrade J. C. Frederick, Chief Mus- 
tering Officer,' the duties of Installing Officer will be performed by the 
Senior Past Post Commander present, although it is preferable that 
arrangements for an Installing Officer be made prior to the date set 
apart for the installation. Should a Past Commander decline to act, 
the Post Commander may assign the duty to any Comrade who will 
serve. 

If a Post desires a Comrade other than a member of the Post to act as 
Installing Officer, it will first arrange with the Comrade, and then for- 
ward the name of the Comrade so selected with his Post No. and post- 
office address to these Headquarters so that the proper detail be made. 

Officers elect who may be absent at the installation must be installed 
by the Post Commander or by a Comrade assigned to that duty, at the 
earliest possible date thereafter.

held at Altoona, in June next, should be forwarded promptly. Atten- 
tion to ithis will materially aid the Officers of the Department. 

VI. Quartermasters are required to furnish bonds on the form pro- 
vided, by this office; where Quartermasters have been re-elected, they 
will not be required to make new bonds, unless the amount or condition 
of the securities has been changed. 

Installing officers should satisfy themselves that this requirement has 
been complied with. Posts that have not been inspected, cannot have \ 
their officers installed until this has been performed. 

VII. Blank postal cards mailed with General Orders No. 7, should at 
once be filled in with the names and addresses of the Post Commander for 
1906, and mailed without delay. If this matter is given prompt atten-

Past Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief, A. P. Burchfield, for his munifi- 
cent gift of a handsome brussels carpet, covering the floor at Head-

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 41 



Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 
Philadelphia, December 21, 1905. 
General Orders, 
No. 9. 

The Department Commander announces with sadness and a feeling of 
personal bereavement the death of Past Department Commander 
Thomas G. Sample, which occurred at his home in Allegheny, Pennsyl- 
vania, December 3, 1905. 

In his death the Grand Army of the Republic has lost a comrade 
whose wisdom for many years has helped to shape its affairs and 
guard its interests; the Department of Pennsylvania a leader who en- 
joyed the respect and confidence of his comrades; the Post to which 
he belonged and in which he held official station a member upon whH>m 
his comrades leaned with that trustfulness reposed only in the faith- 
ful and deserving. 

We may not intrude our grief in that home now bereft of husband 
and father. Theirs is the greater bereavement, and to them we tender 
the loving sympathy of a soldier and comrade's heart. 

Thomas G. Sample served his country faithfully and well as a soldier; 
performed conscientiously and honorably the duties of a citizen; exem- 
plified fully and grandly the fraternal comradeship of the war days, and 
jewelled his life with an intense and lofty patriotism, so that It may well 
be said of him 

"His Life was gentle, and the elements 
So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up 
And say to all the world, This was a man." 

He was a man of strong conviction, but withal frank, openhearted, 
honest, true — leaving "no day pass whose low descending sun did not 
record some worthy action done." 

He was devoted to his friends, to his comrades of the war, and to the 
Grand Army of the Republic, that he loved and served so well. 

We shall miss his wise counsel, his ripe judgment, his inspiring 
presence, his encouraging words and his cordial, kindly greeting, but 
his memory will be cherished, and though dead he will live in the loving 
hearts of his comrades as they shall speak of his worth and be in- 
fluenced by his example.

Philadelphia, February 10, 1906. 
General Orders, 
No. 10. 

I. On December 9th, 1905, National and Department countersigns 
were mailed in sealed envelopes to Post Commanders; as the same were 
not returned to the Assistan<t Adjutant General, it is very evident that 
proper delivery was made. Posts that are not in i)ossession of these coun- 
tersigns should make injuiry of the Post Commander for 1905. 

II. Credentials of Representatives and Alternates to the Fortieth 
Annual Encampment have not been received from several Posts. Post 
Commanders will make inquiry in this direction. Those delinquent in 
this particular are requested to at once forward the same to these Head-

III. The Fortieth Annual Department Encampment will be held at 
Altoona, during the week of June 4th to the 9th. Headquarters will be

House rates accompany this order. Railroad rates will be promulgrated 
in future Orders. 

IV. A revised edition of the Rules and Regulations can now be fur- 
nished on requisition. Many important amendments makes it desirable 
that Posts should be in possession of the same. One of the amendments 
makes it obligatory upon Posts to drop a member who remains twelve 
months in arrears for dues, after the prescribed two months notice. 

V. The Department Commander calls your special attention to the 
Sons of Veterans, composed as it is of the sons whose fathers fought for 
the suppression of the great rebellion, their objects to care for and per- 
petuate the work for which we are banded together. Their organization 
is now upon a higher plane than ever before, and is worthy of our con- 
fidence and support, and it is desired that Posts give to them every aid 
possible in the extension of their organization. 

VI. The Proceedings, Finding and Sentence of Post Court-Martial in 
the case of Charles Hay, of Post No. 97, are hereby approved, and the

VII. With regret the announcement is made of the death of 
JAMES MORRIS GIBBS 

ComniAnder of Post No. 116'. This sad event occurred at Harrisburg, on 
February 20th last, and came with a great shock to his large circle of 
friends. For two years he had served his Post faithfully as commander 
and had but just entered on his third term. He served his country well, 
as a citizen he was respected and admired, as a comrade his fraternity 
was boundless, and his geniality was beyond measurement. His record 
was one of which the Department and his "Post can be justly proud.

No. 13. 



I. Comrades: As we approach another Memorial Day, with its tributes 
to the dead, and its lessons to the living let us prepare for the work that 
devolves upon us. 

The dead whom we honor were our comrades in trial and purpose; — 
and with us wrought the victory that preserved a Nation that to-day re- 
ceives the homage of the world, and whose flag, typifying its strength 
and power, will on next Memorial Day droop in tribute above eyery 
grave where sleeps a soldier or sailor, who in days that are gone offered 
his life that its clustered stars might remain in their places and con- 
tinue to illuminate the pathway of liberty and progress. 

We miss from our ranks each year thousands of Comrades and ship- 
mates. We could wish it were not so. 

Ah, well the years sweep swiftly on; 
Death's sickle does not, may not, rest. 
And shall not spare the brave, the best. 
For any prayer, for any moan.

52 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Ours is the blessed privilege of added years, and we live on to feel 
their glory, and be inspired by their example. 

Let us therefore be true to the comradeship of the flaming battle line 
—the weary march, the lonely -picket pwst, the joys, the sadness, the 
hardships of our soldier days when we with our comrades were fighting 
humanity's battle. 

Let every comrade, every survivor of that great war, enter fully into 
the spirit and the duties of the day, help to broaden its observance, and 
intensify the interest of the people in the beautiful ceremony, so that 
old and young, soldier and citizen, may gather into their hearts the 
lessons it unfolds, and the glorious patriotism it teaches. 

Forget not those who sleep far away from kindred and friends, their 
resting places known only to Him "who numbereth the stars and palleth 
them by name." Over their graves the vines will tenderly creep, and the 
wild flowers will perfume and adorn the spot. Strew flowers upon river 
and sea, and let the restless waves bear them lovingly where sleep the 
dead, who found a grave in the gardens of the mighty deep. 

Let tuneful choirs fill the air with sweetest music, and patriotic speech 
and verse to stir the hearts of the people, that this and coming genera- 
tions shall not only remember the patriot dead, but shall learn and re- 
member what is cost to save the Nation, and preserve the flag. 

II. Commanders will arrange to have their respective Posts attend 
divine service on Sunday, May 27th. These memorial services, prepara- 
tory to the observance of "Memorial Day," are worthy of our highest 
consideration, and to which the Sons of Veterans should be invited to 
participate. 

III. The attention of Officers and Comrades is called to the fact that 
the designation "Memorial Day" is proper, and that "Decoration Day", 
should not be used in connection with the observence of the ceremonies 
as provided for May 30.

Philadelphia, May 22nd, 1906. 
General Orders, 
No. 15. 

The Department Commander announces with sadness, and a sense of 
personal bereavement, the death of Past Department Commander Edwin 
Walton, which occurred at his home, in Philadelphia, on Friday, May 
18th, 1906. 

He was one of the great hosts of brave boys, who, before they had 
reached the years of manhood, rallied to the defence of the Nation, 
and stood side by side with those of maturer years beneath the Nation's 
Flag in the pitiless tempest of battle. He was a commissioned officer in 
the Volunteer Army of the Union before he had attained his majority. 

As a citizen he lived a life of great usefulness, and stood for those 
things which ennoble manhood and uplift and dignify American citizen- 
ship. 

As a Comrade none were more faithful, and, in the closer circle of 
those who knew him best, none more beloved. 

The Post Room of the Grand Army of the Republic, next to his home, 
wais a holy place, -where he found loving companionship with those who 
were bound to him with the ties of the great fraternity within whose 
membership have been and are gathered men who with their Comrades

in stress, and trial, and sacrifice, wrought out the great results that 
have uplifted humanity. 

His Comrades recognized his worth by calling him to important offi- 
cial station, where his wisdom guided and his untiring devotion to duty 
and high ideas inspired them. 

He wAs Department Commander, for many years a member of the De- 
partment Council of Administration; as Assistant Quartermaster Gen- 
eral he rendered conspicuous and valuable service; as a member of Na- 
tional and Department Encampments his advice was freely sought and as 
freely given, but amid all the honors conferred upon him, he seemed 
to t-ake greatest delight in serving as Adjutant of Gen. D. B. Bimey Post 
No. 63, which place he filled consecutively for twenty-five years, with an 
earnestness and fidelity that endeared him to every Comrade. 

The Department of Pennsylvania stands in the midst of this bereave- 
ment with bowed head and sorrowing hearts, and extends its heartfelt 
sympathy to the home that is so sotely stricken, and to that family 
whose bereavement is the keenest and sorrow the deepest.

56 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

Office of Patriotic Instructor, 
53 Fidelity Buildingr, 
Pittsburgh, Pa., February 2, 1906. 
Circular. 

In General Orders No. 6, announcement was made of the appointment 
of Charles O. Smith, of Post 259, Pittsburg, to be Patriotic lastructor 
for Department of Pennsylvania. 

That appointment has been accepted and the appointee has entered 
upon the discharge of his duties. He fully realizes that without the 
assistance of his Comrades his field of labor will be confined to that which 
he can cover personally; this of necessity will be narrow, results 
meagre, unsatisfactory to himself and not creditable to our Department. 
He therefore appeals to the Commander of each and every Post in the 
Department for his help and earnest co-operation and shall expect a 
hearty response. 

Above all else the Grand Army of the Republic is a Patriotic Organiza- 
tion. Patriotism is the one grreat force which can save this Nation in 
times of danger, and it is eminently proper for the Grand Army of the 
Republic, in its closing days, to take up this work with increased vigor 
and to invite the co-operation of all Patriotic Societies and of every 
American Citizen. 

At this time, when people from foreign lands are coming to our shores 
by hundreds of thousands, who are unfamiliar with American ideas, 
and ignorant regarding our form of government and our institutions, it 
is clearly our duty, by our presence, example and best efforts, to edu- 
cate them up to a point where they will understand what it means to be 
a Citizen of the United States and the requirements of good Citizenship. 

The Grand Army of the Republic has been, and will continue to be 
until the end, a great factor in promoting and encouraging Patriotic 
education in our Schools. In this, as it is in all Grand Army work, the 
Comrades will see to it that the Department of Pennsylvania- is second 
to none. 

The new Rules and Regulations Provide "that the Department Com- 
mander shall appoint, on nomination of the Department Patriotic In- 
structor, as many Assistant Instructors as he may deem necessary." 

In compliance with this, every Post Commander is called upon to 
nominate a comrade of his Post for the position of Assistant Patriotic 
Instructor, sending the name on blanks attached, and full Post Office 
address to Department Headquarters. In due course the Department 
Commander will confirm these nominations. 

Yours in F. C. & L. 

CHARLES O. SMITH, 

Patriotic Instructor. 
Approved.

Office of Patriotic Instructor,

To the Assistant Patriotic Instructors, Department of Pennsylvania 
Grand Army of the Republic: 

Dear Comrades: Your having been* selected and appointed Assistant 
Patriotic Instructors indicate that^ou are qualified to perform the 
duties devolving upon you and that it will not be necessary, nor possible, 
for the Department Patriotic Instructor to do more than throw out a 
few hints and suggestions for your guidance. Competency to assist in 
this work does not of necessity, require that you shall possess extraor- 
dinary oratorial powers. Your experiences as soldiers and as comrades 
of the Grand Army of the Republic fully qualify you for this important 
work. In your person you represent the grandest and grreatest of "ob- 
ject lessons" in patriotic education, and what is needed on your part is 
a little study, much thought and great earnestness in order to accom- 
plish the desired results. Truth, honesty, love of country, respect for 
its laws, and reverence for its Flag— is Patriotism and Patriotism is 
the foundation stone of good citizenship, a citizenship that will never 
require the services of an "Investigating Committee." 

In your associations with the people and in your readings you learn 
many lessons that you will be able to use to advantage in your work.

58 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

For instance, only recently the newspapers contained an account of a 
Socialistic-Anarchistic speech made by Jack London (the author) before 
Yale College students, in which he said: "If the peofple object to our pro- 
gram because of the constitution then to h — 1 with the constitution— Class 
war is our watchword." A principal of one of our public schools (if cor- 
rectly reported) recently denounced the celebrating of Washington's 
Birthday as useless and a waste of time. He also condemned the childish 
patriotic spirit in his pupils which found expression in the immature 
declaration— "To lick any person that said anything a^ain this country." 
You have no doubt heard of the movement in the South to erect a monu- 
ment in honor of Capt. Wlrz, Commander of Anderson ville prison during 
the war of the rebellion. This is particularly unfortunate, coming as it 
does, at a time when so much is being done to allay the animosities 
engendered by that war. Incidents such as these demands patriotic 
treatment and this should be done in a kindly spirit— "with malice toward 
none and charity for all." Let the people, especially, the strangers thai 
have come to abide within our gates and the youth of our land, be 
taught to emulate the virtues of Washington, Lincoln, GJ-rant and 
McKinley and to apply them to the duties of life and there will be no 
question as to the future of this Republic. 

Happily, there is much on the other and brighter side which should 
not be overlooked. The comrades of Post 70, Corry, Pa., are justly 
proud of the fact that for over 35 years Old Glory has floated over their 
Post Headquarters each and every Friday, that being the day their 
Post meets.— "Hats off." 

"Look at the Grand Army men," exclaimed a youth,* "they are re- 
turning from the funeral of another one of the veterans." How much 
nicer, more dignified and patriotic than if he had said "Old Soldiers." 
Veterans; yes; Old Soldiers, never. 

With rare exceptions, the teachers in our schools and school authorities 
love and honor the veterans of the Civil War and are in healrty sympathy 
with the Grand Army. of the Republic in all of its patriotic work, and 
if approached in the right spirit will encourage and gladly render all 
the assistance in their power. When it can be done, through the aid 
of patriotic citizens or in other ways— prizes should be offered to the 
pupils of the schools for the best essays on patriotic subjects— such as 
"What is patriotism;" "Patriotism vs. Immigration;" "What are the 
qualifications of good citizenship?" In visiting the schools always wear 
your G. A. R. Badge and when ever possible your full G. A. R. uniform, 
this in itself is an object lesson that makes a lasting impression, parti- 
cularly so on the younger children and those of foreign birth. Explain 
the meaning of your G. A. R. badge. 

One comrade writes me that in his visits to the school he takes with 
him a United States Flag and a Confederate flag and uses these to good 
effect. Articles used during the war with explanations of their uses 
and personal experiences of the war will be more impressive than any 
set speech. "Look pleasant" and above all avoid being tiresome. Make

yourselves familiar with the "Salute to the flag" adopted for the schools 
and encourage its use. 

Our State has laws prohibiting the desecrating of our Flag and pro- 
viding for its display on school buildings; interest yourselves in the 
enforcement of such laws. 

Placing the intials **G. A. R." or any other matter on the U. S. Flag 
is a desecration and a violation of the law. 

Of course, comrades, Memorial Day will have your most earnest at- 
tention, and I nee'd not remind you of your duties for that occasion. 

The following are other days when patriotic exercises in the schools 
and elsewhere are desirable and should be encouraged: 

February 12th— Lincoln's Birthday. 

February 22 — Washington's Birthday. 

April 9th— Appomattox Day. 

April 27th— Grant's Birthday. 

June 14th — Flag Day. 

July 4th— Independence Day. 

Enlist in your work the co-operation of the Woman's Relief Corps, 
Ladies of the G. A. R., the "Sons and Daughters of Veterans and Kindred 
Patriotic Societies; also the Church, Clergy and Press. 

There is much food for thought, in the excellent report of Col. Allan C. 
Bake well, National Patriotic Instructor. This report is published in the 
proceeding of 1905 National G. A. R. Encampment which should be found ' 
in your Post library, If not you may, perhaps, secure a copy of Comrade 
Bake well's report by addressing him at No. 479 Fifth avenue. New York, 
N. Y. I would suggest your subscribing for "The Industrial School 
News" published semi-monthly, by the Soldiers' Orphans School at 
Scotland, Pa. It only costs 25 cents per year and Is wor'th many times 
that to any Comrade. 

It win be almost Impossible for me at this time to give Individual at- 
tention to the many letters and inquiries that I receive, therefore I have 
covered more ground In this circular letter than I would otherwise have 
done. The Comrades have my thanks for the Interest they are taking, 1 
am always pleased to receive suggestions and, regret that I cannot ac- 
cept all the requests that come to me for visitations. 

With best wishes and fraternal greetings I am 

Yours In F. C. and L.,

40th ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT 

UNOFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS 

ALTOONA, PA., 
Tuesday, June 6, 1906. 



Shobt-hano Report by Comrade H. L. Bubnell. 



Camp-fire at the Opera House, Altoona, 8 P. M., Tuesday June 5, A. D. 

1906. 

Honorable J. D. Hicks, presiding: 

Comrade Hicks: Now, my good friends, it is not often that the good 
people of the city of Altoona have the opportunity of greeting the Com- 
rades who fought in the War of the Rebellion forty years ago. But 
once before in the history of our city did we have this distinguished 
honor— but once before. At that time the ranks of the Grand Army of 
the Republic were filled with stalwart men; it was fully fifteen years 
ago. From that time until the present, the ranks of this Grand Army 
of the Republic that did so much to make our nation famous, have been 
greatly thinned. 

To-morrow when you see it on its march through your streets, you 
will notice its decimated ranks, and the thinness and the grayness of the 
Comrades who at one time marched and kept step to the music of the 
Union, and I know that you will join with me when I say, all honor to 
these gallant men who did so much to save this nation and preserve it 
until the present time. I know that you will say with me, honor to these 
gallant men who bared their bosoms to bullets and scars in order that 
this country of ours might be preserved as it was handed down to us by 
our fathers. 

Little did we dream, those of us who had the honor of serving in that 
wonderful struggle, little did we dream of the greatness, the magnifi- 
cence and the glory that awaited us as a nation, but thanks be to 
Almighty GJod we were preserved as a republic and our mission will not 
be accomplished until we carry Christianity and freedom to all the 
benighted people of this great world. Our destiny as a nation will not 
be fulfilled until the glorious stars and stripes shall wave in every land 
and proclaim freedom to every nation. I do not say that we are to rule

every land, but I do say, and I firmly believe that the freedom which 
prevails in this our own glorious country, will prevail in every country on 
which the sun shines, and your example and your education and your 
force of character will bring about that happy result. 

But I am not to make a speech, I am an Altoona Comrade. This is 
the night we welcome the remnant of the Grand Army of the Republic 
of the Department of PennsjUvania, and Altoona opens its heart to it, 
and our hands are open to it, and the welcome we feel is warmer and 
greater than tongue can utter. 

Invocation by the Rev. Dr. Wagner. 

**0 God, our help in ages past, cur hope for years to come, our 
shelter in the stormy blast and our eternal home," it is to Thee that we 
look; Thou are great in goodness. Thou art good in greatness. 

In the days of the past, when the clouds gathered above our national 
horizon, when the blood of heroes was crimsoning the soil of this great 
land, when hope was sometimes changed to despair, it was to Thee that 
we looked; it was to Thee that we cried; it was in Thee that we put our 
trust and Tliou didst not forsake us. Thou didst hear our prayer then; 
Thou didst answer us. Thou didst cheer our heroic, brave men on 
through the smoke and blood of battle to final victory, and in this the 
hour of our triumph, in this the hour of victory and peace, we would 
not forget to bring to Thee, the grateful prayer of thanksgiving. 

We thank Thee, O God, for that help in the past, and as these brave 
men come together now, we look to Thee and thank Thee for all they 
have achieved, for all that they have sacrificed, for all that they have 
offered, for all that they have accomplished. 

We thank Thee for their coming together in our midst, and we pray 
that Thy richest blessing may rest upon them, and as they gave and 
offered the best they had to their nation, may their nation now bring 
to them the best it has, its reverence, its unfeigned gratitude and 
thankfulness. 

We not only thank Thee for their past and for this present, but we 
pray Thy blessing on them in the days to come. We pray Thy blessing 
upon them personally. May they who fought so valiantly the battles of 
their nation, fight well the battles of life, and may they acknowledge 
Thee as the captain of their salvation, the one foundation alone upon 
which the immortal can build with safety. 

Grant, O God, that they may ever look to Thee, that they may accept 
the salvation that Thou hast provided for them. Bless the soldiers' 
families, bless the soldiers' widows and his orphans. Let Thy rich bless- 
ing, O God, rest upon this nation. Bless our dear old flag, may it ever 
be the emblem of the highest civilization, and of humanity. May the 
days of its future fulfill the prophesies of its birth, and may it go on 
second only to the banner of our Lord Jesus Christ in working out the 
great mission of humanity. Amen.

62 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

The Chairman: The President of the Ladies of the Grand Army of the 
Republic and the President of the Womans' Relief Corps and the Sec- 
retary of each of these associations, are invited to the stage. Will the 
ladies if they are present, please come forward and t-ake seats upon the 
stage. 

The members of the Citizens' Committee of Altoona are requested to 
come forward and take seats upon the stage, if they are present. 

I have already indicated on behalf of the citizens of Altoona their cor- 
dial welcome to all who have gathered here to attend this our Fortieth 
Annual Encampment of the Department of Pennsylvania. You know 
that the hearts of the people in Altoona and Blair county, beat in unison 
with your own in their love for the flag and in their love for our com- 
mon country, and we are prouder of our flag and of our country to-day 
than we ever were before in all our lives, and we are thankful to 
Almighty God that we are spared to see this day. 

I now have the pleasure of Introducing to you the Hon. Simon H. Wal- 
ker, the Mayor of our city, who will address you with words of welcome 
in behalf of our citizens in general. 

The Hon. Simon H. Walker, Mayor of Altoona: Mr. Chairman, ladies 
and members of the Grand Army of the Republic, my memory carries 
me back to the time when as a boy in kilts I flrst saw the marching hosts' 
go down the old Cumberland Valley to do battle for home and flreside. 
Later I heard the thunderous volleys from the battlefleld of Gettysburg, 
and if I was to live another half century, I would not forget the visit of 
the butternut uniforms to my father's home. With these stirring inci- 
dents so indelibly impressed upon my childish mind, there is naturally 
no organized body of men in whom I have a greater interest than the 
dear old Grand Army of the Republic. (Applause.) 

Of the gallant hosts that I saw pass down the valley of the Cumber- 
land, there remain but the remnant of a hundred battleflelds. They 
poured out their lifes* blood from Gettysburg to Charleston, from Chick- 
amauga to New Orleans, and from Atlanta to the sea. On all these 
flelds they answered the last roll call , and their names are written in the 
muster roll of God's heroes. Of the Grand Army sent by the Keystone 
State for the preservation of the nation's life, that came marching down 
our streets at the call of our great President, only these remain. 

The generations born since then, can have no personal recollection of 
your deeds of valor, nor did they feel the mighty thrill that swept the 
country at the sound of your marching feet, but your achievements are 
80 written upon the archives of the nation, that each succeeeding gen- 
eration will value them the more as the perspective increases. As the 
years go by, the importance of the principles for which you fought, 
the effect upon generations yet unborn, and the new epoch in civiliza- 
tion that your valor established, looms larger and larger. You settled 
once and for all certain fundamental questions upon which depended the 
perpetuity of the nation. The grand Commander over us, looking down 
upon the development of the nation from his seat upon the circles of the

earth, saw in the very evolutions of the banners under which you fought, 
and those opposed to you, that their emblems were of the earth, earthly, 
and ours adorned with "the milky baldric of the skies." (Applause.) 

"The lily will fade and die, 
The rose from its stem shall sever, 
The shamrock and thistle pass away. 
But the stars shall shine forever." (Applause.) 

My friends, we feel highly honored to have you with us to-night; it 
will not be the privilege of many committees to welcome you in the 
ifuture. As you all well know, the Angel of Time is calling the roll at 
fast increasing speed. For you, the last taps will soon sound, the last 
greeting will soon be "hail and farewell," therefore we have nothing 
that is too good for you; our hearts, our hoijies and our city are open 
to you. Come and go as you will, and may you carry to the other side 
pleasant recollections of the hospitality which you received while among 
tis. May God bless you. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: I now have the honor of introducing our Department 
Comm'ander, who will respond to the address of welcome. 

Department Commander Wilt: Mr. Chairman, and Mr. Mayor, fellow 
citizens of Altoona, Comrades, and ladies and gentlemen, I have missed 
a large portion of this speech of welcome, so of course if I should fail 
to respond to all the minutiae of that speech, you will pardon me and 
know why. 

Now we are accustomed to these words of welcome and these words 
of praise and commendation of . the Grand Army of the Republic and 
we are very nearly in the same condition that the young soldier was who 
had been taken into a hospital, after he had received serious wounds. 
A lady came in and finding him lying there in the hospital wounded ser- 
iously, she said, "Young man, is there anything I can do for you?" He 
jsaid, "No. Ma'am," She said "Can't I wet your brow?" He replied, "O, 
yes ma'am, you can, if it will help you, or do you any good, but if you 
do it, you will be the fourth lady that has done the same thing." 
(Laughter.) 

Now we are so accustomed to these speeches of welcome wl.ei vei 
we go, that they are not a novelty to us. We receive these same words 
of praise and welcome whereyer we go in this great Commonwealth. So 
if it does you any good, we are the gainers by it and we are glad of it. 
(Applause.) 

These words of praise and welcome that your Mayor has spoken for 
your forty or fifty or sixty thousand inhabitants, that compose this 
mountain city, twelve hundred feet above the level of the sea, I want 
to assure you are appreciated. He speaks for each one of you. He 
speaks for all of your people, and brings to these survivors of the 
Grand Army of the Republic these happy words of greeting, and on be- 
half of the 24,000 Comrades enrolled in over 500 Posts, over this great 
Department of Pennsylvania, I wish to return thanks for the kind 
words spoken.

64 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

In welcoming these survivors who are present with you in your beauti- 
ful city to-d-ay, what is the class of men to whom your welcome is ex- 
tended? They are the men who fought at Gettysburg and climbed the 
heights of Lrookout Mountain, and marched with Grant and Sherman 
and Meade, or in the cavalry corps of Sheridan that sent Early whirling 
through the valley, and it is no wonder that you welcome this organiza- 
tion of veterans. For forty-one years, sir, these survivors have been 
among you, and everywhere they have proved to be the best class of 
citizens. We believe that this organization has demonstrated that they 
are not only men of war, but they are men of peace and they have per- 
formed the duties of good citizenship wherever they reside in this great 
Commonwealth. 

These survivors, sir, are representative men who have served in 
various civil positions of honor and distinction to which they have been 
elected by the suffrages of thousands of their fellow citizens, and I ap- 
prehend that because of this fact, too, as representing the good citi- 
zenship, representing the best of our land, your citizens welcome these 
veterans into your midst. 

Taking this into consideration, I believe that your Mayor is safe and 
you are safe in inviting us to come into your midst, not only as men of 
war, but especially as men of peace. We have learned the ways of 
peace through the ways of war, and we are here to transact our little 
business in our encampment, and we hope to carry away with us not 
only the words of welcome extended to us by the Mayor as your repre- 
(sentative, but we shall carry with us into our homes and to our fire- 
sides, the acts of kindness that you have extended to us and will extend 
to us during the few days that we are to remain in your midst. We 
shall carry with us these things in memory as an evidence of the 
patriotism and cordiality that has been manifested and will be mani- 
fested by the good people of Altoona. 

We are glad to be with you. We believe that our conduct will be 
such that when we leave here, you will feel gratified that you have had 
the privilege of entertaining and welcoming once more the survivors 
of our great war. We are glad to be with you, and hope that you will 
take into your minds the inspiration and influences that will make you 
better men and better citizens of Altoona because of our presence. 

Again, we thank you all for the kindnesses you have extended and 
will extend to us, and we assure you that we shall carry them home with 
us and keep their memory in our hearts. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: We will now have a sohg entitled "Columbia the Gem 
of the Ocean." Prof. Winter will play the piano accompaniment. 

Miss Cora Hicks then favored the audience with the song above named 
which was greeted with hearty applause. 

The Chairman: 1 now have the privilege and the great honor of in- 
troducing as chairman of this meeting, now that these preliminary ex- 
ercises are over, a gentleman and Comrade whose name I need not an- 
nounce, but one who is dear to every Comrade of the Department of 
Pennsylvania, one who has filled ^)i^ Jiighest pffice iji tjje Gr^wjd Army of

the Republic; I refer to our honored ^ast Commander-in-Chief Thomas 
J. Stewart. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and 
friends, I have been sitting: back here watching the progress of this 
program; I was a little startled when Comrade Hicks made the an- 
nouncement that you old fellows had saved the Union and said you 
were going to save the whole world. I thought you had trouble enough 
-with the job you had on hand in *"61," and then I listened to the welcome 
by the Mayor and the response by our Department Commander, and then 

I thought that probably we had better get down to the camp-fire and 
then Comrade Hicks made an announcement as to the next number on 
the program which reminded me of a song that I heard many years 
ago called "The Dost Chord," but that is not in it, we have lost the 
whole orchestra. (Daughter and applause.) 

Now that is merely a diplomatic way of telling you that it is not here; 
Comrade Hicks, in that splendid way that he has of ma,king everything 
look like a peach, announced the fact that I had held the highest office. 
Fortunately for the Department of Pennsylvania, she has lived to see 
within our Department four Comrades who have held the highest ofiice 
within the gift of the Grand Army of the Republic, and it is the only De- 
partment in the whole Grand Army of the Republic that has four Past 
Commanders-in-Chief to the credit of the Department and all good, 
sturdy fellows. I am about the weakest of the lot. We have three on 
this program, but there is only one of them present, and I am about to 
call upon him, and I take this long method of introduction, so that he 
may have the opportunity to prepare his speech, because he didn't know 
that he was to be called on first, and I fi.m going to introduce to you 
now a Past Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic 
who served in '61 in the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteers answering the first 
call, then again in the 47th Pennsylvania and served there until the 
close of the war and has been a soldier all the years from that time until 
now, a splendid Comrade of the Grand Army of the Republic, a dis- 
tinguished citizen of this State, and to-day the Major General of the 
National Guard of Pennsylvania, Past Commander-in-Chief J. P. S. 
Gobin. He ought to make a speech after that, hadn't he? 

Past Commander-in-Chief Gobin: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and ladies 
and gentlemen, I am reminded of a story I once heard as I am placed 
in this position, and pleased as I am to meet you all to-night, I am some- 
what embarrased. 

I remember distinctly the story of a man who was inclined to be 
bibulous in his habits. His friends tried to correct his morals and his 
habits in various ways, and finally on one occasion when he was unduly 
hilarious, they fixed him up in a place and made his surroundings to re- 
semble a dead .house, a place where we take those who have passed 
away. They made it very serious and solemn in all its surroundings, 
and as the old man waked up>and took a view of what was around him,

he said, "Well, I expected it, butol didn't expect it so damn soon." I 
am very glad to meet you here to-night and I am glad this tent don't 
Wak. As I listen to the rain falling upon the roof I think everybody 
connected with it is glad that we have comfortable surroundings, and 
pleased with the opportunity it has given us to hold our camp-fire in 
peace and security, with no possibility of anybody's being sent out to 
go on picket out there, unless some of the younger fellows might be 
attracted by the handsome young ladies in the house to go on their own 
responsibility. 

In an audience of this kind, where the ladies are all young and hand- 
some, it is a great satisfaction to bring,them together because they make 
up a great part of the citizenship of this nation, that we think %nd be- 
lieve is the best in the world and the men and women are the best, be- 
cause they make it the best nation. 

I like Altoona; they used to tell a very good story about Altoona, one 
that I got from General Stewart. He won't have an opportunity to tell 
it until I get through, and I think I bad better put it dfC on him now. It 
• is a true story. He never tells any others because he usually makes 
them up himself, therefore he knows they are true. (Laughter.) They 
used to tell a story of an Irishman who was very proud of his job; I 
s»'ppose you people in Altoona may have heard this story. This Irish- 
\*nin had charge of a section of track on the railroad and he was very 
proud of his job, very proud of the roadbed and very proud of the man- 
ner in which he built the tracks and kept them in order. 

On one occasion, a brother of his, who had just come over from Ire- 
land, paid him a visit, and about the first thing he did was to take this 
newly arrived brother out and show him the road, show him how he 
had cleaned up around the bank, and how nicely everything had been 
put in order, and as he was looking at it and extolling the work he had 
done, one of these magnificent fast express trains came rolling along, 
and swept by in its magnificent grandeur, everything beautiful and 
bright about it, when, as they were looking at it as it was moving along 
in its swift career, it plunged into a tunnel and out of sight, and this 
Irishman turned around— this roadmaster, turned around to his brother 
and said to him, "Did you ever see anything grander than that? Wasn't 
that beautiful? You might live a thousand years in Ireland and you 
would never see anything like that." "Yes," said the brother, "sure and 
its beautiful enough; it's a pretty sight all right, Pat, but if it had missed 
that hole, wouldn't it have raised hell?" (Laughter.) 

We are glad to meet you, we are glad to get the veterans occasionally 
togrether, it does them good. We pick up a newspaper now-a-days, and, 
some fellow will say, in reading off the list, "Well, about 6,000 old sol- 
diers died last month." They make up the record for us in that sort of 
a way; they try to kill us off by mathematics, algebraically or geologi- 
cally or some other way, but when we come around annually to meet in 
these Department Encampments, we find there are still a good many of 
us left. There are still enough of us here to pay tribute to the fiag and 
to pay tribute to the memories of those who are no more with us, there

are still enough of us left to say to the young and rising generation, and 
to those of later days, that a nation that don't take care of its soldiers, 
a nation that don't revere the men who died that your homes might be 
preserved and made secure, and the integrity of your nation maintained, 
is a nation that don't deserve the love of its people. 

It is a pleasure for the old soldiers to come together to recount the 
stories and talk of the good times they had, and the serious times and 
to teach again the lessons that will sink down deep into the hearts of the 
American citizen. 

There is one thought that I would like to leave with you, which is this, 
that the work of the soldier as he fought in the sixties is being developed 
and growing larger and more important under God's providence day after 
day, as we move on through life's journey. 

This nation to-day, occupying the position it does, as a world power 
second to none, this nation to-day upon whose beck and nod the mon- 
archs of the old world are waiting, was made possible as a world power 
by the men whose representatives sit before you to-night. (Applause.) 
It was the American soldier that placed it where in a short time you will 
hear the reveille of the soldier from morning till night away ofC in the 
Pacific, in the Arctic, and away ofC be yond the Pacific, in the Philippines, 
and let me say it is the same old tune, the same old sound, and what is 
the music that is wakening up the boys over there, three or four or five 
thousand miles away? It is the same old reveille that sounded "Get up, 
get up in the morning you can't get them up, you can't get them up;" it 
is the reveille of the American nation, the American soldier, the Ameri- 
can "bugle, and the tribute that we pay to the flag is the same that we 
always played, the Star Spangled Banner, that is played by the bands 
of the world to-day in stronger tune and with nobler music, and to 
more listening ears than ever our fathers dreamed would be possible, 
and you can say as Kipling says, 

"Take 'old o* the wings o* the morning'. 

An' flop round the earth till you're dead; 
But you won't get away from the tune that they play 
To the bloomin' old rag over 'ead." 

Your own flag, "old glory" represents the magnificent growth and 
prosperity of our country and above all things, it yields protection to 
your homes. The home of the American citizen is his castle. Around 
that home centers all the affection and all the thoughts of his mind 
and feelings of his heart. It is his home and the home of those who 
are expected to come after him. In it he finds his joys. As the home 
is protected and taken care of by the State, so is the citizen pleased and 
the State happy, and you old soldiers and you citizens, let nothing in- 
terfere with your love of home, and your love of country. Let it be the 
proudest record of your life that as you were good soldiers in war, so 
you are good citizens in peace. 

While life lasts you may well be proud of the fact that forty years 
after the great war in which you were engaged, you are now known as 
peaceful, God-loving men, and there is no higher title that could be

given to any man, than that of an American citizen soldier. I bid you 
good-night. (Applause.) 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: I presume that 
you noticed as I did, that Past Commander-in-Chief Gobin expressed a 
desire to tell this audience a true story, and he selected one of mine for 
his purpose, which is one of the best compliments I have had in the 
story-telling line for a good while. 

Comrade Hicks has given me instructions to vary the program a little, 
and I next present to you Miss Reed who will favor us with a piano 
solo, entitled "The Night Before Petersburg." 

Miss Reed then played the piano solo named, which was greeted with 
marked applause. 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: I am sure there 
are many Comrades in this audience who will recall the night before 
Petersburg and there is one Comrade who I know will recall the night be- 
fore Petersburg, for he served in that gallant Pennsylvania regiment 
that wrought out one of the mightest achievements of-the war in tun- 
neling under the earth and under the rebel fortifications. I see back in 
the audience Captain Jack Crawford, the poet-scout who served in the 
48th Pennsylvania. He is known all over this country. Will the captain 
please come forward? Everybody wants you. You havn't lost your 
voice; come up here on the platform. 

Now, not that it is necessary, nor even as a precautionary measure,- 
but before I introduce Comrade Crawford, I am going to prepare this 
audience for a treat by introducing the Department Chaplain who has 
prayed for us and taken care of for thirty-four years, Comrade Sayers. 

Chaplain Sayers: Mr. Chairman, I am reminded of a story. 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: A true one? 

Chaplain Sayers: Yes, it is a true one, for I have told it before. 
There was a quaker in our community engaged a clerk and he was a 
young fellow, very slight and very quick in answering all questions, and 
very apt in scripture, in quotation. One day a lady came in the store 
and she wanted to buy some gingham, and inquired the price. He said 
13 cents. She said, I don't want to buy any gingham costing as little as 
13 cents; havn't you got something else? And the friend, his employer 
was in the rear of the store and he saw the boy going around to the other 
side and getting a piece of gingham from the shelf and spreading it out 
before the lady he says, "This is 25 cents and he sold her as many yards 
as she desired, and she paid for it, and after she had passed out, his 
employer came up to the young man and said to him, "How can thee 
answer in the scripture for doing what you did at this time? Selling 
that lady that piece of gingham for 25 cents a yard, when the price was 
less.^ The young man replied, "Why, I can do that very easily, *I was 
a stranger and ye took me in.' " (Laughter.) 

I am glad of one thing, that Gen. Gobin didn't put the theological pro- 
fession into his category to-night but he left us out, and I am much ob- 
liged to you. General Gobin. I am gjad of that because we don't pro-

pose that the old soldier shall die. He is going to live forever. He is 
going to live as long as the stars and stripes float, and that will be until 
the end of time, in my judgment, if we behave ourselves. (Applause.) 

The devotion and the love of the boys of '61 and 65 to that flag, can 
best be described by this story which is a true story. Some years ago 
a certain gentleman went to California as the editor of "The Advocate." 
He had been the editor of one of our eastern papers and after he was 
out there a little while he found that a family from Ohio that he knew 
had moved out into that country, so he hunted them up and there he 
found the father and the mother and three children. They had cleared 
away perhaps two acres and built themselves kind of a log house in 
which they were living miles away from neighbors. One day the father 
said to his wife, "I must leave and go into the city on business, and I 
will be absent for several days; he went. That night at twelve o'clock 
the mother took sick. She needed relief. The only help she had, the 
only one she could send was a little girl twelve years of age. They were 
several miles away from the nearest neighbors. The little girl had to 
go through a ravine, a very wild country, and she heard the howling 
of the wild beasts, but she went and returned and brought the relief to 
the mother. The doctor said to the mother, "I should think you would 
have hardly dared to send your little girl out in the night on such an 
errand, and turning to the little girl said, "How in the world did you do 
it, weren't you afraid?" She said, "I only saw the white face of my 
mother and I didn't know anything else." So the boys who followed the 
flag, only knew that their country and flag was in danger and they 
didn't look for any trouble anywhere else. (Applause.) 

When General Gobin so magnificently spoke of the flag, he might have 
said that from the very time that that flag was given to us as a nation, 
when the founders of this republic got as near to Heaven as possible, 
anG tore out a patch of Heaven's own blue, and joining it to the rain- 
bow, God's symbol of promise, in the (farkest hour as the fittest ex- 
pression of their trust and hope in Almighty God, and gave it to us, and 
that is why it has been honored and revered wherever liberty is loved. 
(Applause.) And you are loved because you made it passible for this 
to be a great n-ation and so while some are passing away, and I do not 
want to turn this camp-fire oft into a mournful channel — I dare not trust 
my feelings, but I do not want to turn it off into any other line, than a 
camp-fire, still we are passing away, but I pray that God may so help 
you and each of you, to live, that when those who shall come after you 
shall look over our record, wherever that flag floats, they shall speak 
of what you did to save this nation, to bring liberty and to enhance 
liberty everywhere where manhood loves freedom. (Applause.) 

Comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic, in annual encampment 
assembled, now as you come together I hope that we will get closer 
together than ever before, and as Memorial Day comes and you instruct 
the boys and girls and do the greatest work that any organization under 
the sun has ever done, for this republic in teaching patriotism or In-

culcating patriotism into the hearts of the young, I hope you may live 
until all these boys and girls are taught to love their God and their 
country, and I only hope that I may with General Gobin and yourselves, 
be permitted to live to carry on the work. 

While there may be gray hairs here and there — and mine are 
not very gray yet, and I don't propose as long as I can help it that they 
shall get gray, for this world hasn't very much use for an old man — , 
but I would say to you, look on the bright side and God will give 
sunshine to come into your hearts and cheer the evening of your lives, 
so that those about you shall speak of you as happy men in the commu- 
nity. God bless you all. (Applause.) 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: I want to present 
at this time Mr. Frank H. Waring, who will now favor us with a solo, 
entitled "They are One Beneath Old Glory." 

Mr. Waring: Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, I think it is a 
noteworthy fact that this song was published in the "Atlanta Constitu- 
tion" during the late war between this country and Spain. 

Mr. Waring was in magnificent voice, and his singing was greeted with 
great and long continued applause, and in responding to the encore, 
he sang, "As I Came Through St. Ives," which was very much enjoyed 
by the audience, which manifested its delight by laughter and great ap- 
plause. 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: It gives me great 
pleasure to present to you now a Past Department Commander of the 
Department of Pennsylvajiia and I think that he can prove to you that 
the women do not do all the talking. Comrade Morrison. 

Past Department Commander Morrison: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and 
friends, it is under very distressing circumstances that I stand here to- 
night, from the fact that I can't enter into an understanding of some 
of the matters talked about by Commanders-in-Chief Gobin and Stewart, 
when they talked of a cold deck and dealing from the bottom as one of 
them did, and the other talked about three card monte and three of a 
kind and two pairs, I had no more idea what they meant than I have 
of the meaning of the hieroglyphics on Cleopatra's Needle. (Note by 
reporter. The reference made here is to remarks by Post Commanders- 
in-Chief Gobin and Stewart as to card playing, which were purposely 
omitted by the reporter.) 

Then again, I am unfortunate, and I guess I am in sympathy with 
Comrade Hicks in being unfortunate, for he seems to be particularly 
unfortunate to night— I am unfortunate from the fact that when I 
started to come to the camp-fire, General Gobin said to me, "tell them 
that it will be impossible for me to do that" and practically the first 
Comrade called on was Past Commander-in-Chief Gobin, who had in 
the meantime turned up on the platform. It is because of these things 
that I am completely knocked out. 

The Mayor of Altoona has told us that he was glad we are here. 
Commander Wilt told him that we were glad that we were here, and

do you know, I am grlad that I am here, because our train was an hour 
late. 

I was at a gathering: the other night, and a gentleman was called on 
for a speech, and he had none, and he went down in his pocket and 
took out a newspaper clipping and I thought that was a pretty good 
dodge, and I have just one favor to ask of you at this stage of the game, 
and that is, if there is any Allegheny county man here with a brick that 
he will hold it until I get through. 

"Pittsburg, Pa., is not only a soft coal smoking town, but also a 
stogy smoking town. I know what I am talking about because I used 
to live in Pittsburg, but my laundry bills in that berg got to be some- 
thing fierce, so I moved. It is difficult nowadays to get a plumber on 
short notice in Pittsburg— nearly all the plumbers have quit plumbing 
and gone into the laundry business — there's more money in it. A man 
with a white collar and a clean pair of cuffs walking quietly along the 
street in Pittsburg will cause so much excitement .tlfat the cars will be 
blockaded. 

When the business man goes to work mornings in Pittsburg, he usually 
carries an extra collar and a pair of cuffs in his pocket. On his way to 
work it is customary for him to step into a doorway and change his 
laundry. You remember that little verselet Andy Carnegie is said have 
written about Pittsburg? It runs something like this: 

Mary had a Uttlfe lamb, its fleece was white as snow 

It fallowed her to Pittsburg, 

And now look at the confounded thing. 

For days on end I never saw the sun in Pittsburg. It was a common 
occurrence to meet a friend on thfe street and say good morning. "Is 
it," he would ask, glancing up at the pall of soft coal smoke which over- 
hung the town. 

You can't tell beans about the time of day in Pittsburg by the sun. 
The only way you can tell is by looking at your watch— and then you 
can't tell unless you can remember whether it is A. M. or P. M. 

This causes considerable confusion. Pittsburgers never know when it's 
bed time. All days and nights look alike to them. Street lighting plants 
run twenty-four hours a day. If a Pittsburger lives in the suburbs where 
it is a long time between street lights, he carries a lantern to and from 
work. 

But I am not knocking Pittsburg, you understand. Pittsburg has pro- 
duced some great men. Now for instance, there is Andrew Carnegie 
and Charlie Schwab and George Westinghouse, and Hen Frick and me, 
and — O, several more millionaires. It is a notable fact, however, that 
most of those who have really jolted the world much, didn't do it while 
they remained in Pittsburg. Pittsburg is a good town — it's a good town 
to get out of once in a while so that you won't forget what sunshine 
looks like. 

However, it was the Pittsburg stogy I started in to write about, not

the Pittsburg: smoke. Everybody who smokes has heard of the Pitts- 
burg stogy. Pittsburg is a community of stogy smokers. Stogy smok- 
ing is epidemic there. Every man from the millionaire to the hod car- 
rier smokes Pittsburg stogies. 

It is a curious fact that the "Pittsburg" stogy is made in Wheeling, 
West Virginia. Of course there are Pittsburg stogies made in Pittsburg 
and Pittsburg stogies made in Chicago and New York. (Successful pro- 
ducts are always imitated) , but the old reliable and original Simon pure 
Pittsburg stogy comes from Wheeling, where it is turned out in oar- 
load lots by M. Marsh & Son who were established in 1840. 

When I was in Pittsburg, I did as Pittsburgers do and smoked Pittsr 
burg stogies. When I came to Boston I couldn't get Pittsburg stogies, 
so I took up the pipe, and began smoking hashed browned cabbage 
leaves, tan bark plug cut and other things, but the yearning for the old 
Pittsburg stogy remained with me. I couldn't wean myself away from 
it. Thus it came to i)ass that a couple of weeks ago I sent back for two 
boxes of the weed I used to smoke. They came by express. 

The boxes are round, and bear on the outside a red label. Each box 
contains a hundred stogies. Each stogy is about as long and as big 
around as a lead pencil but more pliable. When they are fresh and moist 
you oan tie one in a knot, like a string. They smoke better, however, 
after they are dried out slightly. 

When you smoke one that is fresh and damp, you use about half a 
box of matches to each stogy — you hold the stogy in one hand and carry 
a lighted match in the other. These stogies are black, and each is 
guaranteed to be of two-horse power strength. It is a common lay- 
ing in Pittsburg that the cheapest drunk for a tenderfoot is to smoke a 
Pittsburg stogy and take a drink of water. 

As soon as my stogies arrived, I placed one in my openface movement 
and lighted it. Then I began smoking it with the zeal of one who is 
hungry for something he has wanted for weeks. By the time I had half 
finished it I put on the brakes and slowed down. I began taking longer 
rests between puffs, and gravely contemplating the stogy in my fingers. 
By and by I laid the stub end of it down on the table. 

Then the table began to whirl like a merry-go-round. I got up and 
tried to walk across the floor just for exercise but there was a heavy 
swell running and I didn't have my sea legs on straight, but I didn't give 
up. I thought I was going to once or twice when I was sea-sickest, 
then after a time my vision cleared and I knew I was coming instead of 
going. 

As I wrote this, I am back in fine form again and take a stogry after 
each meal for what ails me. 

I sent a few of these stogies together with my best wishes to Joe 
Cone, a pal of mine down in Connecticut. They brought the following 
letter: 

Dear Newt.: If I ever did anything to you I am sorry for it. What "was them" 
you sent me? My wife used three for leather crimpers to put her hair up, but she

said they smelled of tobacco and stopped using them. I began smoking one a week 
ago, and have been working hard at it ever since whenever I had time, but have only 
got half of it smoked at this writing. Also I don't feel very well, and hope you feel 
the same. 

l^hey ought to be great things to keep moths away, also ones friends. Don't send 
any more — I have figured out that the half dozen you sent will last me seventeen 
years and I am a reckless smoker at that. Yours with that nutty flavor, Joe, Old 
Saybrook, Conn. 

One of my neighbors dropped in the other evning to borrow some .tobacco. I lent him 
a Pittsburg stogy. He smoked it on the spot, and wen*^ back home on his hands and 
knees. The next day I asked him how he liked it, and he never let on he heard 
me. I understand he has been telling his friends that I lured him to my room and 
drugged him. 

When the garbage man called last week, I gave him one. He carried it to his nose, 
then he handed it back. 'No, thank you, this business I am in as bad enough, but 
that's the end of the limit." 

Just between you and me, I have got a good deal of fun (and seasickness) out of 
those Pittsburg stogies. 

NBJWTON NDWKIRK." 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: Now I want to 
present to you a good old Comrade of the Grand Army of the Republic, a 
Pennsylvania soldier, Comrade Jack Crawford, known all over the coun- 
try as the "Poet-scout," a man who served in the 48th Pennsylvania 
Regriment during the war and afterwards served on the plains. He is 
a splendid entertainer and I know you will all be glad to hear him, and 
I take great pleasure in presenting Comrade Jack Crawford. 

Comrade Crawford: Past Commander-in-Chief, Comrades and Lfadies 
and Gentlemen, I should have refused to obey the Commander-in-Chief, 
had I not known that there are two Past Commanders-in-Chief that are 
not here, and I believed that by coming up here, I could possibly to some 
extent fill the vacuum. 

I want to say further that I came to your beautiful city because I was 
invited here by telegraph to spend a few days with my old Comrade 
George Mosher, and I came from my distant home two weeks ago to 
Bradford, Pa., to deliver a Memorial Day address, and also to help at 
the camp-fire, and gave an entertainment in the evening at the opera 
House to an audience that looked a great deal Hke this, only I think 
the lady portion of the audience is a little better looking than those of 
Bradford. However, if I was at Bradford, perhaps I should make the 
same remark there. 

When I left my mountain ranch, 9,000 feet above the sea at the foot 
of the mountains and then looked irom the foot of those mountains tu 
the top of old Solidad, rearing its head toward the sky, I thought, what 
grandeur in nature! And when I left that beautiful scene in the moun- 
tains there, I thought of a little scene that occurred about twenty years 
ago, a place where I had given an entertainment and had recited some 
of my poems— at the close of the entertainment a gentleman stepped 
up to me and took me by the hand and said, "Captain Jack, why don't 
you publish a book of your poems for the people are hungry for them." 
Well now you know no man can go hungry where I am; my latch-string 
is always out, and I said, "I will do it," but I found out that it would 
cost $500 for me to get my poems published, and I had never seen $500

in my life up to that time, but I found a bold-hearted friend who was 
laboring under a temporary fit of insanity, who told me he would loan 
me the money, but that he never expected to see a dollar of it back 
again provided Captain Jack expected to get it back out of his poetry, 
and he was about right, for I never made a dollar out of them. 

When I came to New York city I was a green-horn. Now you know 
when I get my hair up under my hat like that (illustrating) it makes quite 
a transformation scene, and although it is getting a little gray and we 
hear a Kood deal about the old\ soldier passing away, I want to say to 
you that the Woman's Relief Corps will have to bury me, because I am 
going to be the last one left, and so. Comrades, when I came to New 
York, I was told by some friends not to go near the Bowery. I said, I 
won't, but in less than two days I found myself on the Bowery and as 
I was riding on a car, I heard one conductor say, "Jay" and another 
one, "Damn hay-seed." I said, "If I had one of you fellows on the Rio 
Grande where I live, I would make you look like a frame house struck 
by lightning. 

You know in New York they have railroads up in the air, and it was 
the first one I had ever seen, and I was looking at it right sharp, and a 
newsboy came along, and he noticed my long hair, and he said, "HuUy 
Gree, is all de barbers on a strike?" In less than two minutes they had a 
crowd around me there, and one of the street gamins flaid, "Qit onto de 
guy; he's fraid of de El." 

Captain Jack then recited a poem of his own com^position entitled 
"Where the Hand of God is Seen," which was received by the audience 
with the highest appreciation d-nd followed by great and long continued 
applause. In response to the encore Captain Jack recited some verses 
entitled "Sanctimonious Ike" which were of a humerous character and 
written in frontier dialect. 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: We will now sing 
the old song entitled "Marching Through Georgia" and be led by Com- 
rade Cover, and I want everbody in this audience to join in it, old and 
young and everbody. (Applause.) 

The song "Marching Through Georgia" was then sung by the audience 
led by Comrade Cover, with vigor and enthusiasm. 

The Chairman, Past Commande^r-in-Chief Stewart: I hope that the 
ladies and comrades will wait. We will close the camp-flre in a short 
time, but there are some Comrades here from whom I am sure you 
would like to hear, and I now have the pleasure of introducing to you, 
Comrade M. A. Gherst, who, judging from present appearances, is 
likely to lead the Department during the coming year as Department 
Commander. 

Comrade Gherst: Mr. Chairman, Comrades, Ladies and Genetlemen, I 
rather like that introduction; I like your generous reception, but I fear 
that after you have listened to the magnificent music and to the eloquent 
speeches and charming recitations, if I attempt to take up your time, I 
shall be in the position of the man of whom I recently heard who made

a speech, and in his judgment it was a grood speech; probably it was 
not such a speech as Comrade Sayers or Comrade Stewart or the rest 
of these eloquent Comrades could m-ake, but it was a good speech. His 
wife was in the audience, and when the meeting adjourned he expected 
her to meet him at the door and greet him enthusiastically and cor- 
dially; greatly impressed by his speech. She met him at the door, but 
she didn't seem enthusiastic. They started on their homeward journey, 
and he was quite anxious to get her opinion, but she said nothing, and 
she kept on saying nothing. Finally he could not restrain his anxiety 
to get her opinion any longer, so he said to her, "Elizabeth, what did 
you think of my speech? She said, "You made a good speech, but — ." 
He said, "What do you mean by qualifying it in that way? What do 
you mean by "but?" She said, "I think you missed your opportunity, I 
think you had so many splendid opportunities to quit and sit down long 
before you did." Now I can sympathize with him I have been there! I 
may be there after this effort I can't tell. 

While I am very glad to be here, I would rather be a listener than 
to be here trying to entertain you. 

Altoona, while it is some distan-de removed from the active scenes of 
the war of '61 to '65, is yet not without its historic interest. Soon after 
the rebel hordes were hurled back from Antietam, in the same- month, if 
I remember rightly, seventeen Governors met in this city representing 
so many loyal states and here, led by our own brilliant and patriotic 
Curtin — (Applause) who towered perhaps above them all, they here re- 
solved and said to the great Lincoln that we will stand by you, and 
assist you in crushing the most unholy and unjustifiable rebellion known 
to history, if it takes all the resources of the States we represent, and 
they did it, and you, my Comrades were the men who responded to 
their oall, followed their leadership and crushed the rebellion. You are 
the men who brought back that flag which now proudly floats over the 
greatest and proudest nation of the earth. 

May I quote and repeat what a writer has said in reference to the 
boys that constituted the armfes of those days. He said "the average 
soldier boy of '61 was pure metal; the glint of his eye reflected the stars 
of the flag, and the prophesy of Api>omattox was reflected on his brow. 
Within the white chambers of his soul nothing could enter that was not 
in aflftliation with the guests already cherished, his mother, his sister, 
his sweetheart and his G^d." 

These are the men who composed the armies, fought the battles and 
won the victories for the Union. These were the men baptized in the 
fire of battle at Bull Run and who distinguished themeselves in every 
subsequent campaign. These were the men who were present with Grant 
when Appomattox came. 

But that same writer also said, that the women of *61 were not the 
frail creatures sometimes imagined and depicted. They were not merely 
lint scrapers, but they were the Inspiration of the soldiers of the Union, 
lint scraping and bandage winciing were minor episodes. Their work

was as many sided as a prism with each angle reflecting the radiant 
intensity of their souls. (Applause.) These were your mothers, your 
sisters and your sweethearts, the best in the world, God bless them. 
(Applause.) 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: I was very glad 
to hear Comrade Gherst refer to our old war Governor Curtin, and to 
the fact that the other Governors from the loyal stales had met in this 
city and had expressed their confidence and determination to sustain 
the great President. Governor Curtin will always be remembered as the 
greatest war governor of all the loyal states. There was one thing he 
did fhat will remain in memory and in history as long as our flag floats, 
and that was the organization of the Pennsylvania Reserve Division, 
the only division of volunteer troops from one state that kept its division 
organization throughout the entire war. 

I want to present to this audience in a few moments, one of the Com- 
rades who served in that Pennsylvania Reserve Division and who gave 
an arm to his country, Comrade McCauley, Past Department Com- 
mander. (Applause.) 

Past Department Commander McCauley: Mr. Chairman, Comrades, 
Ladies and Gentlemen, your chairman has made a kindly reference to 
the divi^on in which I had the honor to serve during the war of the 
rebellion. It is not necessary for me to recount the battles, the sacri- 
fices and the weary marches of that distinguished body of men. They, 
as all Pennsylvania soldiers, did their whol^ and honest duty to the 
Grovernment. I don't suppose that we did more, perhaps not as much 
as some particular regiment who enlisted and served from Pennsylva- 
nia but they were a little army in themselves and did noble and good 
work. 

This Grand Army of the Republic of ours, is a very unique organiza- 
tion. Nothing like it has ever beon known before to my knowledge 
in the history of the world, and I doubt whether any such organization 
will follow it after it shall have died oi^Jt; it is altogether probable that 
with the death of the last man who belongs to it, no other or similar or- 
ganization will ever exist. We can scarcely talk about it, without indulg- 
ing in self-glorification, but we are proud of it, proud of the many great 
deeds accomplished by it. As an organization it has had as much to do 
with legislation and the making of laws by the government it not more 
than any other association. Five of our Comrades have been elected as 
chief executives of the nation. Our great Captain Grant, Statesman 
Hays, the brilliant orator Garfield, the distinguished lawyer Harrison 
and the beloved McKinley. All these men belonged to this organization, 
and in the different states, scores of men have been elected the chief 
executives of their different Commonwealth, and all through these forty 
years, the members of this organization have made their impress upon 
the laws for the benefit and for the holding up and building up of this 
great nation. I consider it the greatest honor that I have ever en- 
joyed, to belong to this organization, aAd I would rather feel that 1 have

earned the right to wear this button, than to be decorated with the Vic- 
toria cross, or the Black Eagle of the Kaiser. I thank you. (Applause.) 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart, I want you to wait 
and help us sing "America," but first I want you to hear a few words 
from Comrade Holgate. 

Comrade Holgate: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and I^adies and Gren tie- 
men, I don't know what I can say to you in addition to what has been 
said here to-night. I take it that the purpose of this meeting is to illus- 
trate an old original camp-fire such as the boys — we called them boys — 
they were the boys of '61 — such as they held when they were marching 
through Virginia, or down at Missionary Ridge, or camping at Vicks- 
burg, or down here on the hills of Gettysburg. When they got together 
after a long weary march was over, and they built their little fires, 
and cooked their coffee, and gathered around perhaps two or three 
of them in a knot, perhaps a dozen of them, and told their stories, 
and related their experiences, told what occurred to them on picket or 
in battle, but do you know what they talked about mostly, those boys 
who had left their mothers or their wives or their sweethearts, had said 
good-bye to them; they were the ones they talked about, their mothers 
and their sisters and the girls they left behind them. Of course they 
talked about other things, too. We had every general in the army 
sized up, just such men as Gobin over here, and they criticized them and 
discussed their merits, and they were good judges. They also talked 
about the whole history of this country, night after night, week after 
week and month after month. They talked about the history of this 
magnificent country of ours, they talked about the history of that 
beautiful flag of ours, and they got together night after night in their, 
camp-fires, just as we do now in our state encampments and national 
encampments and Post meetings to exchange experiences, one with 
another, to tell the experiences of the years that are gone by. I don't 
know how I can tell that; I don't know where I should find words that 
would carry the meaning to you of the parting between a mother and 
her son. I don't know where you would look for the colors to lay on the 
canvas that would illustrate the feelings of these boys when they were 
first under fire. I don't know where in all the universe there is power 
enough to depict the experiences of men at that time, and the women; 
and I want to say to you that the history of that war has never been 
written and never will be written. It cannot be written, nor can it be 
carved on the marble statues nor on the bronze tablets erected by a 
grateful people, but it must be written on the loving hearts of the peo- 
ple that are to come, in all the ages to come. There is the true history 
of it and so long as this history survives, and so long as our cou/itry 
survives, in its present form and in its present glory, the things tha-t 
these men did in '61 to '65 will be a living witness to bear testimony to 
the value of the institutions of this country; they will bear witness to 
the solidity with which our government was formed in the years that 
are past and gone, and they will carry conviction to all the coming

generations that the war that was fought by the boys of '61 to '65 was 
eternally right and the men misguided and mistaken who lifted their 
hostile banner against that beautiful flag of ours— that while we were 
eternally right, they were everlastingly and eternally wrong. (Ap- 
plause.) 

They died — 400,000 of them died on 2,000 crimson fields, they died that 
this country of ours might endure and that "government of the people, 
for the people and by the people might not perish from the earth." (Ap- 
plause.) 

It is to perpetuate the history of that tremendous season in our na- 
tion's crisis that we gather together year after year, not to glorify the 
deeds' of any one man, but to-day the glory of the Grand Army of the 
Republic is the glory of all the people of all the United States, and it is 
due to 'the efforts of these men that we conquered as we did conquer, 
that we fought the war to a finish until to-day we have a restored and 
regenerated government, and have built around that government a 
rampart so high and so strong that to-day this nation of ours may defy 
a hostile world in arms, and the flag of the free lives, and will live as 
the token that the Union lives, and that liberty reigneth forever. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chairman, Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: No four years of 
time in the history of the world produced so much music and so many 
songs of a patriotic character as did the years from '61 to '65, songs that 
were sung in the camp and have been sung every year from that time 
until now, and no audience ever, fails to sing in this country where 
patriotism exists, and to sing with fervor, our own splendid hymn, 
."America." 

"My country, 'tis of thee, 
Sweet land of liberty." 

I want this audience to sing this with earnestness and with power, and 
let us close up this magnificent camp-fire. 

The audience rose and joined in singing America after which the 
camp-fire adjourned.

PROCEEDINGS 



OF THE 



40thANNPAL ENCAMPMENT 

DEPARTMENT OF PENNSYLVANIA, 

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC, 



HELD IN THB 



OPERA HOUSE, ALTOONA, PA., 

JUNE 6th AND 7th. 1906. 



Altoona, Pa., Wednesday A. M., June 6, 1906. 

The 40th Annual Encampment of the Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic was called to order at 10 o'clock A. M. by 
Department Commander J. Andrew Wilt, who opened' the Encampment 
in due form as prescribed by the ritual. 

The Department Chaplain, Comrade John W. Sayers, made the open- 
ing prayer in the following words: Almighty God, humbly and rever- 
ently would we come into Thy presence. We thank Thee for Thy lov- 
ing care over us and invoke Thy blessing upon us. We thank Thee, 
Almighty God for the way in which Thou hast thus far preserved our 
lives in permitting us again to gather in our annual encampment. We 
pray that whatever we do may redound to Thy honor and glory, and 
do Thou grant that our comradeship may be more precious than ever 
as we gather to-day and think of the many who are absent, those who 
were wont to be in the forefront of our organization; some of them have 
fallen asleep since last we met, and there is the vacant chair; their 
voices we shall hear no more, but we thank Thee, Almighty God, our

Father, that Thou hast sustained so many and that we are permitted 
thus to gather here. 

We pray that Thy blessing: may rest upon the sad homes and their 
inmates, and as they think of our encampment, of father and brother 
and friend who were wont to gather wtih us that are no more, may 
they look up and not down, and may they look forward to that time 
when they shall meet again. 

We pray. Almighty God, our Father, that Thou wouldst wonderfully 
bless us and sustain us during this encampment. Let Thy blessing rest 
upon \he officers and upon every member. Now Lord, do Thou grant 
that the spirit of harmony and brotherhood may prevail, and guide us 
in all our transactions. We pray that Thy blessing may rest upon the 
absent ones, some of them upon beds of disease; some of them who will 
never again gather with us, who remember the days gone by, who were 
wont to be associated with us. O Lord, bless them who are with us in 
spirit if absent in body, and may they look to Thee for comfort and for 
strength. 

We pray Thee, our Father, bless our land, and do Thou grant that 
as an association, as a comradeship as one by one we shall be mustered 
out, may we hear Thee say, "Well done, good and faithful servant" and 
may we all meet again to part no more and Thine shall be the praise 
forevermore. Amen. 

The Department Commander: The Assistant Adjutant General will 
now call the roll. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Department Commander, the officers 
are all present or accounted for. As the Committee on Credentials has 
checked off the officers and Comrades present, I move you that the 
further reading of the list of representatives be dispensed with. 

The motion having been duly seconded, and the question put, it was 
agreed to.

GRAND ARMY OP THE REPUBLIC. 135 



Address of the Department Commander. 



Comrades: Another year has passed since we assembled in our annual 
gathering. Liite our Armies toward the close of the struggle in which 
we took part, those of us who have been spared, are better prepared, 
by previous experience, to do better more effective work in the uphold- 
ing and advancement of the principles of Fraternity, Charity and 
Loyalty. Many of our Comrades have fallen, but those who remain 
have Worked resolutely and, I think, more enthusiastically, to fulfiill 
the objects of our association and impress on the people in their re- 
spective communities, that the Comrades of the Grand Army of the 
Republic, are not only the survivors of the war for the suppression 
of the Rebellion— preserved the Union of the States — but that we are 
the leaders in all movements which tend to the betterment and advance- 
ment of our country, and that the surviving soldier is an object lesson 
to the young of our land and is a convincing object of that mighty 
struggle which demonstrated to the world that this country shall in 
truth and in fact be the "land of the free and the home of the brave.' 

When I assumed command, I did so with a full realization of its 
burdens and responsibilities, and had many misgivings as to my 
ability and strength to meet them; but the perplexing questions have 
been made easier by the kind, generous and fraternal advice and 
assistance of my Staff and the Comrades; and while the work con- 
templated has not been fully realized in several directions, yet, what I 
have done, was with the purpose of aiding each comrade to realize 
more fully, if possible than ever the honor that is his, in having been 
a soldier, sailor or marine for the Union, and feeling that membership 
in the Grand Army confers, not only honor, on account of service in 
the Army or Navy, but that it carries with it, duties and responsibili- 
ties for the present and the future. While we take pride in our 
military records, and the questions our services helped to decide, yet 
we must realize fully in our declining years, that our previous good 
records may be sadly marred by unseemly conduct, either as members 
of this organization or as citizens. From my observation, in al^ parts 
of this Department I am convinced that the Comrades act more fully 
in harmony with this proposition than ever, and as a result, the 
members of the Grand Army are held in the highest esteem and honor 
in their respective communities, — honored as soldiers and respected 
as citizens. 

WTierever I have been I have endeavored to preach the gospel of 
good cheer and happiness. Our organization will eventually become 
extinct; the time is coming when the last Veteran of the War, in which 
we participated, will be gone; this is but natural; we know it and 
realize it fully. Does this occasion sadness in your hearts? It should

not my Comrades. Let us rather, from this fact, take new ]ieart and 
courage to battle manfully for the rigrht. There are still battles for the 
"old boys" to fight; there are still wrongs for them to right. If the 
saying, "That we are as old as we feel" is true, then we should 
measure our ages from years downward, and say we are so many years 
young. Rather let us resolve that each one of us will henceforth, be as 
cheerful and happy as possible; show to the world that our service for 
our country has not made us miserable fault finders, but that the old 
song, 

"So let tlie wide world wag as it will. 
We'll be gay and happy still." 

has the same influence over us as in days of yore. 

Great as was the influence and power of Washington, Lincoln and 
Grant, while living, their influence on the present and future gen- 
erations, is still greater and will shine with brighter lustre as their 
deeds mark time with the passing ages. As the Veterans pass away, 
and become fewer in numbers, the lustre of their deeds will begin 
to shine, and when we are all gone, our sun will Just rise over the 
Eastern horizon, and as years roll on, will become brighter and 
brighter. There is, therefore, nothing over which to feel sad, but 
everything to cause us to look to the future with hope and confldence. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

By reference to the report of the Assistant Adjutant General, you will 
see the gains and losses, the net loss not being as great as the number 
of deaths during the year. 

Comrades we cannot increase numerically, but we can and do increase 
in power and influence for good. 

FINANCE. 

The report of the Assistant Quartermaster General and that of the 
Council of Administration, will show that the expenditures have been 
well guarded, and that financially we are in a healty condition. 

VISITATIONS. 

I have attended all of the reunions, district, county and regimental, 
so far as time and conflicting dates permitted. I had hoped to havo 
made more visits to Posts, but those visited, and Camp Fires attended, 
cover in territory one half the counties of the Commonwealth. 

Besides the forty-flve Posts visited, there were present, Comrades 
from other Posts in their vicinity representing eighty additional Posts. 
I was present at thirty different reunions and Camp Fires, in all 
sections of the department. I have travelled within the State of Penn- 
sylvania, in the performance of my oflflicial duties, 10,550 miles, and to 
attend the National Encampment at Denver 3,865 more, making a total 
of 14,415 miles travelled. I have devoted of my time 115 working days 
to the interests of the Grand Army of the Republic.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. u; 

Comrades, my effort has been to encouragre you in your work for our 
organization, to feel a pride in your service to your country, and fit you 
for better lives and citizenship, and thus to teach the practical lessons 
of patriotism to the present and coming generations. I trust and hope 
that my humble efforts will not have been entirely in vain. 

SONS OF VETERANS. 

This orgaYiization is doing much to perpetuate the services of their 
fathers, and in most parts of the State, are active and energetic, but 
in other parts, the sons do not seem to appreciate the honor that is 
theirs, of being sons of worthy sires, and fail to interest themselves 
and other eligible to membership in the organization. 

In some parts, the Grand Army assists the Sons, while in the majority 
of places where this body of young men exists, they are great aid to 
the Posts, and are taking greater interest in the work of the Grand 
Army of the Republic. Every Comrade should use his influence to have 
his son or sons, if he has any, to join this organization, thus doing 
the preliminary work, which will devolve entirely upon them when 
we are mustered out. 

WOMEN'S RELIEF CORPS. 

The Pennsylvania Memorial Home at Brookville is a most admirable 
Home designed to care for the Veteran and his wife, and alse the widow 
of the Veteran. This Home is well adapted for the purposes for which 
it is used; the buildings and grounds are well located and kept. The 
loyal and unselfish women who manage this Home are painstaking, 
and see that all the comforts and conveniences are furnished the in- 
mates, which in any way tend to make them more comfortable a'nd 
happy in their declining years. 

This Home is conducted and managed by the Women's Relief Corps, 
auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic, and is deserving of the 
encouragement from members of the Posts as well as from the Com- 
monwealth of Pennsylvania. 

LADIES OF THE G. A. R. 

The loyal women composing this organization take great pride in 
the Home for the mother, widow, sister or daughter of the veteran, 
which they have established at Hawkins, near Pittsburg. 

I visited this Home and found it in an excellent condition, the manage- 
ment being in good hands, and everything being done by them to make 
the inmates comfortable and as happy as possible. 

The purposes and objects of this Home appeal to all of the Comrades, 
and the efforts of these generous women should be seconded by all 
Veterans and charitable citizens. These great hearted women, who 
have labored so industriously for the support and maintenance of this 
Home, merit our most hearty commendation and assistance. 

The Home in Philadelphia at 65th and Vine streets, is managed

138 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PBNNA., 

'and maintained by the ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, com- 
prising the city of Philadelphia and is finely arranged, well equipped, 
and pleasantly located. To this Home are admitted the Veteran and 
his wife, and those in charge are doing all in their power to maintain 
the Home, and provide for the comforts of its inmates. 

The thing that is needed t&r the comfort and convenience of the in- 
mates at each of these Homes is an elevator. Those who are quartered 
on the second floor and above, are not in a physical condition to go up 
and down long flights of stairs; the attendants upon these old and 
inflrm people could thereby also save much exertion and time as well. 
We have suggested to the management, such action in this respect, as 
will tend to make their labors less as well as the comforts of the in- 
mates greater. 

PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIERS' AND SAILORS' HOME AT ERIE. 

At the time of my visit to this Home I found 506 members, who 
were provided with all the comforts and conveniences which in any 
way could add to their happiness, as soldiers, marines and sailors who 
had served their country in its day of need, and now are privileged 
to accept the generous provisions of a grateful people in providing 
such a place in which they can be cared for in their old age, and 
not be left to the charity of a heedless world. The officers do all 
in their power to carry out the object for which the Home was instituted; 
its management is in good hands and we can see in it the 'fulflllment 
of the promise made by our patriotic War Governor Andrew G. Curtin, 
that the soldier shall be cared for. 

The citizens of this grreat Commonwealth can feel proud of the fact 
that they maintain such a Home, and the members of the Grand Army 
of the Republic can feel a just pride that in its inception and main- 
tenance the members thereof have sustained its management and by 
officlsa visits and inspections have kept it up to its present standard. 

COMMISSION OF SOLDIERS' ORPHANS' SCHOOLS. 

The death of Past Department Commander Thomas G. Sample having 
caused a vacancy on said Commission, in accordance with the Act of 
the General Assembly approved May 27, 1893, I recommended to the 
Governor for appointment, Comrade Andrew G. Williams, of Post No. 
105, which recommendation the Governor approved, by appointing 
Comrade Williams, who accepted the appointment, and having pre- 
viously been a member of said Commission, has brought to it ex- 
perience and good judgment, and is in full sympathy with the schools, 
their purposes and objects. 

SOLDIERS' ORPHANS' SCHOOLS. 

The promise made by Grovernor Andrew G. Curtin to the soldiers 
as they were leaving for the front, that in case anything happened 
to them, he would see to it that their children were cared for, has 
been carried out in spirit and letter in the Soldiers' Orphans' Schools

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 139 

of Pennsylvania. I visited the school at Chest-er Springs, which is 
admirably located, and well managed. The Superintendent and teachers 
are interested in the welfare of the children committed to their care, 
the instruction given will equal that of any similar school with pupils of 
that age; the books used and supplies are up to the standard; the 
teachers are well equipped for their work; the pupils appeared healthy 
and happy. 

INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL. 

The Soldiers' Orphans' Industrial School at Scotland, is a credit 
to the State. Pupils from the schools at Chester Springs and Jumon- 
ville, when at fourteen years of age, are transferred to this school, 
and their studies are' here supplemented by training in the industrial 
arts. Carpentry, cabinet and pattern making are taught practically, by 
doing the work in the shop, to those boys who have a desire .or 
aptitude in those direction. Those who wish to become machinists go 
into the machine shops. Printing, tailoring, dressmaking and launder- 
ing are taught by doing the actual work in that department of the 
schools. Each pupil spends half the time in school and the other half 
in the industrial department of the institution. Obedience and punc- 
tuality are taught by the practice of them on the part of each pupil. 
Military training is required of the boys, and calisthenics of the girls. 
Patriotic instruction is made a leading feature. If the boys and girls 
who pass through these schools do not become useful, patriotic and 
good citizens, it will not be the fault of the schools. All honor to the 
men who have established and maintained them. We hope that they 
may be continued in their present state of efficiency, so long as there 
is a soldier's orphan who needs their aid and assistance. No appro- 
priations, made by the Legislature of the State, are doing more good 
and used to better advantage than those for the care and maintenance 
of the Homes for indigent soldiers, their widows, and the Soldiers* 
Orphans* Schools. 

NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT. 

The thirty-ninth National Encampment was held at Denver, Colorado, 
and the Department of Pennsylvania was fully represented by its 
officers, representatives and Past Department Commanders. This De- 
partment sustained its previous good record for soldierly appearance 
and marching in the parade. I am pleased to report that the repre- 
sentatives of this Department, were in attendance at every session, and 
participated in the business of the Encampment. 

Post No. 128 of Allegheny City acted as escort to Department 
Headquarters and with its band added materially to the pleasures of 
the occasion by its splendid music, for all of which I extend my most 
heartfelt thanks. 

The trip going and coming was delightful, and our stay in Denver 
was one of pleasures, as well as an inspiration to all who were 
fortunate to be with us.

MEMORIAL DAY. 

As the grraves of the veterans become more numerous, the interest 
on the part of the people in this day becomes greater. As each year 
removes us farther from the time when these men whose services and 
herioc efforts wrought such wonderful results, so the people of this 
Great Republic comprehend more fully the sigrniflcance of this day to 
the present and future grenerations. Recognnizingr in the strewing: of 
spring's choicest flowers over the last resting place of the veteran, 
as symbolizing the most sacred memory of their heroic services for their 
country, it is also emblematic of the hope, that the present and future 
citizens will be patriotic, vigilant and brave in the perpetuation of the 
principles of equal rights and national unity. 

The Grand Army of the Republic, the Sons and Daughters of Vet- 
erans, Womens* Relief Corps, Ladies' of the Grand Army, the Patriotic 
Sons of America, and all kindred patriotic bodies, have still the work 
of teaching the lessons and sacred memories of this day, so that the 
public will recogrnize it as a Memorial Day, too sacred to be profaned by 
all kinds of amusements. 

Never, since the American Memorial Day has been established, has 
it been more generally and sacredly observed throughout this Depart- 
ment than this year. 
■ 

PATRIOTISM IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. 

For years the members of the Grand Army of the Republic, have 
recognized the importance of emphasizing in our' public schools, the 
instruction in patriotism. We have, heretofore, in many ways, especi- 
ally by visiting the schools preceding Memorial Day, and also by 
attending, as Posts, religious services on the Sunday prior to that sacred 
Memorial. The Camp Fires and Reunions have also been strong factors 
in educating the public mind in the duties of citizenship. Our organi- 
zation, as such, as well as its members, individually, have always 
stood ready and willing to lead in all movements which tend to educate 
the people in their duties as members of this great Republic. 

From all this the Grand Army hasi prepared the field for more 
systematic work. At your last Department Encampment, you recom- 
mended that there be a member of the Staff to be called the "Patriotic 
Instructor." Your recommendation was acted upon favorably by the 
National Encampment, and National, Department, and Post Patriotic 
Instructors have been appointed, and the work of patriotic instruction 
has been commemorated in a systematic way. 

I appointed as such Patriotic Instructor for this Department, C. O. 
Smith, of Post 259, and he has taken up the work with enthusiasm and 
energy. Time has not yet permitted this branch of our work to show 
by the reports from Post Patriotic Instructors, but enough is shown by 
the report of the Department Patriotic Instructor that the Posts^and 
members are much interested, and fully appreciate the importance of it, 
and the work in this line that the Grand Army can do to benefit the 
future men and women of our Commonwealth.

CONSOLIDATION OF POSTS AND OUTPOSTS. 

The consolidation of Posts in some localities becomes a necessity. 
Posts that have become so reduced in membership as to be unable to 
keep up the organization, should take steps to consolidate with the Post 
most convenient for its comrades. It may become by proper action an 
Out Post, and thus keep in touch with all doings of the Grand Army of 
the Republic. 

I recommend the careful perusal of Chapter 2, Article I, Section 5, and 
Chapter 2, Article 2, Section II, of the Rules and Regulations for all 
needed information on this subject. 

SAN FRANCISCO. 

The terrible calamity on April 18th, to San Francisco, by earthquake 
and fire, which wrought such destruction to life and property, again 
calls into action our most worthy acts of charity. Within fourteen 
days, the Posts, in response to an appeal, contributed nine hundred 
dollars, which was at once telegraphed to the Department Commander 
of California, for the use of the comrades of the stricken district. 

The American people are sometimes accused of too* much commercial- 
ism, and a tendency to worship the "Golden Calf," but such generous 
and prompt responses to the needs of comrades in distress, warrants us 
in saying that when the occasion demands it, we are guided by the 
same generous impulses which, in days gone by, prompted us in sharing 
our last hardtack and when "we drank from the same canteen." 

DEPARTMENT OFFICERS AND STAFF.* 
In Senior Vice Department Commander Andrew Lee, and Junior 
Vice Department Commander William H. Green, I have had able, con- 
scientious and energetic assistants. Their work has been well and 
faithfully performed. All the predictions made of them one year ago. 
have been fulfilled in letter and spirit. 

It has been demonstrated by actual experience, that a veteran can 
accomplish more than a recruit; experience is of great value everywhere 
but in no place is it of more value, than in the position of Assistant 
Adjutant General. If my administration as Department Commander for 
the past year, has had any merit, it is due largely to my efficient, pains- 
taking, obliging, kind and good natured Assistant Adjutant General 
Charles A. Suydam. He has accompanied me on nearly all of my visits 
to Posts and Reunions, and has everywhere been, not only the Assistant 
Adjutant General of this Department, but to me, a comrade and 
companion, full of the milk of human kindness and known, loved and 
respected in every Post in this Department. For his efficient and 
courteous manner of conducting the business of this Department for the 
past year, I render to him my most sincere thanks. May the lines of 
his future life fall in pleasant places, and his blessings be as numerous 
as his friends, is the sincere and ardent wish of the retiring Department 
Commander.

142 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

In Assistant Quartermaster General, John L#. Grim, the Department 
has also had the benefit of a previous experience, which has made him 
more efficient as an officer. The labor of keeping the accounts and 
funds for the past/ year, has taken considerable of his time and atten- 
tion. He also accompanied me on visitations in the southeastern part 
of the Department, and he has cheered and instructed by his eloquence 
and counsel. May his enthusiasm for the Grand Army of the Republic 
and his country never grow less. 

The efficiency of an Army is determined by inspection; so with the 
Grand Army, without thorough and careful inspection, the Posts and 
its members might become careless in the discipline or negligent in the 
performance of duty. This duty of Inspection, one year ago, I assigned 
to Comrade Alexander F. Nicholas, and from his able report each 
Comrade can determine the standing of his Post. His practical business 
methods, in the performance of this duty, has added another star to his 
crown of duty long and well performed. He too was with me on visits, 
and added to them by wit and merriment. Well done good and faithful 
servant. 

In Judge Advocate, D. J. Horner, I have found a most estimable 
Comrade, who always entertains and cheers, by his humor and wit. 

J. C. Frederick, who was appointed as Chief Mustering Officer, vice 
C. O. Smith, appointed Department Patriotic Inspector, has performed 
his duties satisfactorily. 

I appointed Charles O. Smith, Department Patriotic Instructor, im- 
mediately after such action was authorized by the change in the Rules 
and Regulations. With his ent^iusiastic and gentlemanly persistence, 
his devotion to the cause, and his great faith in the good that can be 
accomplished, for the future, he has proved the right, man for the 
place. I ardently hope that his successor may continue the good work 
inaugurated by him, as the first Patriotic Instructor of this Depart- 
ment. 

Medical Director, Albert M. Smith, M. D., has performed his duties 
faithfully and well. By his good cheer greeting of the Comrades ht 
has ministered to their needs, and aided everyone with whom he has 
come in contact. 

In his long service as Department Chaplain, John W. Sayres, has 
impressed on the mind of every Comrade of this Department, his un- 
selfish devotion to his Comrades, his country and his God. May his life 
be spared many years, to instruct us, and by his teaching we render 
thanks to Him "from whom all blessings flow." 

If the position of Chief of Staff has heretofore been considered more 
ornamental than useful, then to my Chief of Staff, E. M. Tuton, belongs 
the honor of establishing a precedent for his successors to fol- 
low. He has accompanied me on many visitations to Posts and Re- 
unions, and by his fervent and spirited addresses, and his many social 
qualities, has demonstrated that the Chief of Staff is a useful and most 
efficient factor in upholding and advancing the interests of the Grand

Army of the Republic. His genial qualities have endeared him to all 
with whom he came in contact. I thank him most heartily for the 
valuable assistance rendered. 

No five comrades have done more, faithful, conscientious work than 
•Comrades Jonas H. Dettre, H. T. Stan wood, Theo. E. Turner, Chas. 
Rodebaugh and John Dougherty, who constitute your Council of Ad- 
ministration. The Minutes of the Council will show, these comrades in 
attendance at monthly and special meetings, carefully scutinizing all 
bills for expenditures of the funds. For the business methods and care 
which they have exercised, each is entitled to the thanks of the 
comrades. 

For careful attention to details, punctaality and courteous attention 
and. treatment to all, no one can excel Comrade John N. Reber, Clerk 
at Department Headquarters. May the number of his friends never 
grow less. 

IN MEMORIAM. 

Since our last Encampment a regiment of our comrades from Penn- 
sylvania have been mustered out by death. These Comrades proved 
their heroism and valor on land and on sea, their worth as Comrades 
of the Grand Army of the Republic, and as citizens of this Common- 
wealth. The places that have been made vacant cannot be filled. We 
will miss them in our Posts and Encampments; they will be missed 
in their homes and communities. The high and the low have answered 
to the same call. While we mourn them as comrades of the Grand 
Army of the Republic; we shall recall their virtues and cherish their 
memories — sacred memories to us. We, the living, share their glory 
and will tell the rising generation of their devotion 

Let the lessening ranks lead us to resolve that our work for our 
comrades and our country, for the few remaining days of our lives, 
shall be made more true in our friendships and more earnest in our 
patriotism. 

The Chaplain, in his address, most fittingly refers to Comrades de- 
ceased, and I recommend for it a careful perusal . 

Let us pay to them the tribute of bowed head, and to each say, 

; 
*'We shall meet but we shall miss him." 

THANKS. 

For the faithful discharge of every duty by Department officers I 
extend to each one my thanks. The Aides-de-Camp have aided me 
greatly in making my labors less ardous and more pleasant, and merit 
my kindest regards for their able assistance in making my administra- 
tions successful. To the Past Department Commanders and the Com- 
rades, who have helped me so much by their kindly advice and sug- 
gestions, I am placed under renewed obligations.

144 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

CONCLUSION. 

Comrades: I appreciate the honor you conferred upon me one year 
ago. I have never worked more earnestly or with more enthusiasm in 
any cause than I have as Department Commander of Pennsylvania. It 
has been to me a pleasure as well as a duty, to endeavor to hold the 
standard of this Department high, and not permit, by act or word, that 
which would tend to lower it from the high position it has held under 
my able predecessors. If I have succeeded sufficiently in my purposes 
and aims to merit your approval and respect, then I shall feel that my 
labors have not been entirely barren of results. 

I shall step back into the ranks to continue my labors for this 
unique organization and the comrades, and my most ardent wish and 
hope is, that you and I may live many years to enjoy the pleasant 
and lasting friendships formed and cemented during the past year. May 
success attend you in your every effort, and your remaining days be 
days of pleasantness and of peace. 

Hearty applause at the close of the reading of the address of the De- 
partment Commander. 

Comrade Holgate, Post 211: Commander, I move that the reading of the 
remaining reports as they are all in print, be dispensed with, with the 
exception of the report of the Department Chaplain. 

The motion having been duly seconded and the question put, it was 
agreed to. 

The Department Chaplain, John W. Sayers, read his report which was 
as follows: 



Report of Department Chaplain. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of the Chaplain, 
Chester, May 22, 1906. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Sir and Comrade: According to the requirement of our order, I have 
the honor to submit herewith, the report of the Department Chaplain for 
the year ending with the coming Department Encampment, to be held 
June 6-7 next. 

I have faithfully endeavored to discharge the duties of my office to 
the best of my ability, and have given freely as much of my time to the 
service of the Order and of my comrades, as a large and important 
pastorate would permit.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 145 

The reports received from the various Post Chaplains were most 
gratifying, showing as they did that there was no lack of interest or 
effort, on the part of the Comrades in the observance of Memorial Day. 
It was my honor to deliver Memorial Day addresses for Hetty A. Jones 
Post No. 12 (Roxborough), Philadelphia, and Wilde Post No. 25, Chester. 

During the year I have attended many Post meetings, camp flres and 
public ceremonies of a Orand Army character, and very often said the 
last words at the funerals of Comrades. With that steady swing "deaths 
sickle** is cutting the ripened grain \p. the field of blue, and gathering 
into the harvest the Comrades of the great army of the sixties, 1,056 in 
this Department have been mustered out during the past year. 

"They have fought their last fight. 
They have won their last battle; 
No sound can awake them to glory again." 

They have Joined the mighty host already gathered beyond the river, 
and on the green hills far away await our coming. Homes have been 
rendered desolate, and sorrow sits at many a fireside. 

"Oh for the touch of a vanished hand, 
Aijd the sound of a voice that is still.'* 

The memorial list of the Department contains the names of many 
Comrades, who were conspicuous in the work and the fraternity of the 
Grand army of the Republic. Eli G. Sellers, for many years a member 
of the Council of Administration, and a familiar figure at Department 
Encampments, and who labored earnestly for its honor and advance- 
ment. Past Department Commander, Thomas G. Sample, few in our 
great Comradeship so well and so favorably known, forceful, eloquent, 
untiring, he was a tower of s-trength, and the Department of Pennsyl- 
vania leaned trustingly and lovingly upon him for advice and direction, 
with a confidence which his manliness and integrity Justified. During 
the many years that he was a member of the Commission in charge of 
the Soldiers' Orphan Schools, he gave to that sacred trust his best 
thought and effort, saw that the bounty of the State was properly 
applied, and the homeless ones helped and encouraged to lives of use- 
fulness and honor. When the Master came he found him ready, found 
him patient in suffering, brave in trial, saddened in leaving his family 
and comrades, but rejoicing in the new life he had found by trusting 
Christ as his personal Saviour. 

"How beautiful it is for a man to die 
Upon the walls of Zion; to be called 
Like a watch worn and weary Sentinel, 
To put his armor off and rest in Heaven." 

Thomas H. Kay— few fitted like him to win the heart of men, cheerful 
in disposition, gifted in song, always wanted, and always ready to 
make the Camp Fire burn brightly and make the Comrades happier. His

voice is stilled, but the melody of his music still lingers with us. Clay- 
ton McMiohael, who helped to shape the foundation upon which the 
Grand Army was built, and the first Commander of Post No. 1, his 
was a life conspicuous in the life of the State and Nation G. Harry 
Davis — what a life of usefulness and Christian wOrth ended in his death. 
An upright Judge, a devout and consistent Christian, a faithful Com- 
rade with high ideals; and sincere love for every Comrade. None knew 
him but to love him. And then I. H. Seesholtz, George S. Shattuck, 
James H. Gibbs, Chas. H. Betts and Charles H. Ott, but space will not 
allow of the mention of the many splendid Comrades that we may not 
call by name, all of whom have passed from our ranks in the year now 
at its close. 

Just on the eve of this Encampment, the shaft of death found a shin- 
ing mark. Another leader answered the call of the Master and Joined the 
mighty host of immortals. Past Department Commander Edwin Walton, 
a commissioned officer of the Volunteer Army of the Republic before 
he had attained his majority, he was a representative of that patriotism 
and devotion that makes a nation strong in trial and invincible in war. 
Among his comrades he was a tower of strength, always laboring to 
advance the interest of our order, and by clean citizenship and high 
ideals adding to its dignity, its power, and its wOrth. For more than a 
quarter of a century he was an untiring, earnest, faithful worker in 
the Grand Army of the Republic, and his life was an inspiration to 
those about him. Let us emulate his example and cherish his memory. 

Those that I have mentioned were types of our great Comradeship, 
and the perfume of the sweet flowers with which their graves 
shall be strewn each springtime, and the sweet melodies of the 
sacred songs which shall be sung at their resting places, shall be a 
memorial to all 'the soldier and sailor dead, who having served their 
country faithfully in life have passed to their rest of eternity. May we 
all so live and act that when we shall be called to pass through the 
shadows that gather about the closing of our life here, our pathway 
into the realm of bliss shall be illuminated with the blessed assurance 
that we shall meet our departed Comrades upon the plains of light 
beyond, till then Comrades, Hall and Farewell. 

I desire to record my unfeigned gratitude and appreciation for your 
kindness to me, and pray that God's choicest benediction may abide 
with you all. 

Yours in F. C. & L., 

JOHN W. SAYERS, 
Department Chaplain. 

As the Department Chaplain closed the reading of his report, he 
started to sing "Nearer My God, to Thee" in which the entire encamp- 
ment Joined.

Report of Senior Vice Department Commander. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of Senior Vice Department Commander, 
Hazleton, April 30, 1906. 

Chas. A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Sir and Comrade: I herewith submit my report as Senior Vice Depart- 
ment Commander, for the year now almost at its close. 

I consider it a high honor to have been elected by my Comrades to 
the second highest honor within their power to bestow, it is certainly 
a privilege of the highest character, to have been the next in com- 
mand of the Veterans who wore the blue from 1861 to 1865. No other 
citizens of this great Republic deserve so well its tribute of respect and 
care. 

During the year I have visited many Posts of this and other Depart- 
ments; as a rule these gatherings were well attended, and apparently 
were as full of energy and as much interested in the welfare of each 
other, and the Grand Army of the Republic, as in the years that have 
gone by. 

lU health during the past winter has prevented me from accompany- 
ing the Department Commander on many of his visits, but I have been 
pleased to. note his untiring efforts, in behalf of the Department. 

To the Department officers, and Comrades in general, I extend my 
sincere thanks for the confidence reposed, and courtesies extended to 
me at all times. 

Yours in F., C. and L., 

ANDREW LJEE, 
Senior Vice Department Commander.

My Dear Comrade: In accordance with a custom established by my 
predecessor, I have the honor to report my observations during the 
past year, of such matters as I deem may be of interest to the Com- 
rades of our order.

148 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

The official duties I have performed have been very light but ex- 
tremely pleasant, made so by the uniform kindness of my Comrades 
wherever I have met them. 

My visits to Posts at inspection, installation of officers and entertain- 
ments have been made as far as opportunity offered, and all efforts 
tended towards the good of our organization, and I am pleased to 
report that as a rule they are in good condition and devoted to the work 
and principles that govern our order. 

I desire to extend my sincere thanks to all the officers and Comrades 
of the Department for the kindness shown during my term of office, 
pleasant memories which will long be cherished. 

Fraternally yours, 

WILLIAM H. GREEN, 
Junior Vice Department Commander.

The losses and gains for the year ending December 31, 1905, were as

150 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

follows, viz: By death, 1,055; loss by suspension and other causes, 1,135; 
the gains by re-instatement, transfer, and muster, were 1,335, a gain 
of 200, after deducting the losses by death, showing that the "Grim 
Reaper" is our greatest foe. 

The condition of the Department is fully up to the standard as com- 
pared elsewhere, first in discipline, second to none in the carrying out 
of the objects for which we are banded together, and foremost in the, 
teaching of law and order, and inculcating the principles of patriotism. 

During the year now about to close, I have devoted my entire time 
to the work of this ofllce, in addition to which I have installed th3 
ofllcers of a number of Posls in various localities, and as you know 
have been your companion on many official visits, not only to Posts, 
but also to anniversaries, camp fires and reunions of county associa- 
tions, at all of which the greetings have been so cordially fraternal, 
that I have been more than repaid for the fatigue incident to travel 
and broken rest. 

Both by letter and in person, has my best thought been given to en- 
courage and strengthen the weak, and hold them up to the work, and 
I desire to say that the devotion of the Comrades among the smaller 
Posts located in thinly settled districts, is mos*t pathetic in character, 
and I feel assured that it requires a greater sacrifice, and a stronger 
feeling of fraternity to keep up their respective organizations, than it 
does in the cities with their easy means of getting to their respective 
gathering. All honor then to "The Boys" in the country districts, and 
who write "we will never surrender our charter so long as five Comrades 
are left." 

As in a former report, I desire to call the attention of Comrades to 
the importance of copies of bills pending in the Congress of the United 
States, upon which they desire legislation by the National Encamp- 
ment, through resolution presented tp the Department Encampment, 
should be presented with said resolutions, to the end that if considered 
favorably, the matter can be acted upon intelligently by the Representa- 
tives to the National Encampment. 

I think that I would be derelict did I not call attention to the un- 
selfish devotion of the elective members of the Council of Administra- 
tion, to the duties for which they were elected; they have been faith- 
ful in attendance at the monthly meetings, keenly alert to all business 
presented, and quick seekers after information explanatory of every 
thing presented for their consideration. 

Appended herewith is Exhibit A, showing the gains and losses from 
December 31, 1904, to December 31, 1905. Also Exhibit B, giving the 
number of Posts, together with the membership at the close of each 
year from 1867 to 1905, both years inclusive. 

And now Commander, in closing I desire. Sir, to thank you for the 
honor conferred upon me one year ago, by selecting me as one of your 
official staff, I have tried to come up to your expectations, by a faithful 
attention to the duties of the position of Assistant Adjutant General,

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 151 

to the end that your administration should be a success, and the 
Deparment not suffer for want of proper attention, and it is for you to 
say if I have performed my duty faithfully. At this the close of our 
official relations, I desire to bear testimony to your unfailing courtesy 
in all of our relations, and that we both may be spared to still greater 
efforts (if possible) for the benefit of our Comrades, individually and 
collectively. 

To those who have been associated with me on the staff, and tho 
Comrades who have been so kind during the year, and thereby made 
it one of the years of pleasant recollections, my earnesit thanks are due 
and hereby given. 

Fraternally yours, 

CHARLES A. SUYDAM, 
Assistant Adjutant General

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 159 



Report of the Assistant Quartermaster General. 



Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. 5th and Chestnut Sts., 
Philadelphia, May 12, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: I have the honor to submit this, my third annual report 
from May 12, 1905, to May 12, 1906. I have on hand at. this date de- 
posited in Third National Bank, $1,914.59 an increase of $175.97. This 
is especially gratifying from the fact that while we are losing very 
rapidly by our comrades falling in death, reducing our number but 
not our expense, we are still able to increase our funds. We also have 
as I reported last year, $10,000.00 invested in three per cent, bonds of the 
City of Philadelphia, making cur total funds to date, 111,914.59. 

I would also report, I have on hand up to May 8th, 1906, the sum of 
$1,149.95, donated by ninety-two Posts, G. A. R., four Circles, G. A. R., 
and one Canxp, Sons of Veterans for our suffering comrades of the 
California District. This fund is still increasing. A detailed account of 
each donation, by whom given and the amount, will be announced in 
General Orders. This outburst ot. charity from comrade to comrade, 
proves that the ties were indeed welded in the fire of battle. 

It gives me great pleasure to commend Assistant Adjutant General 
Suydam, Inspector Alexander Nicholas, John N. Reber, Clerk at Head- 
quarters and the members of the Council of Administration for their 
kindly feelings, profitable advice and strict attendance to all our meet- 
ings. They have made it a rule, whether in storm or sunshine, to 
answer "here" at all roll calls, as the minutes will show, proving their 
whole purpose was for the interest and success of our organization. 

I visited, in conjunction with the Commander and his Staff, nineteen 
posts where I gave a few encouragring words. I expect during Memorial 
week from Sunday, May 27th to Sunday, June 3d, to speak in five 
schools and make four memorial addresses, including one at the 
National Soldiers Home at Hampton, Virginia, where I shall meet 
face to face, under one roof, nearly three thousand of my old comrades. 
I also made the address at the unveiling of the 2d Pa. Vol. Monument 
at Petersburg, Virginia, and attended during the year five re-unions 
of regiments, forty religious meetings at the Home for Aged Veterans 
and Their Wives, and to all to the best of my efforts, tried to give 
and uplift the Grand Army of the Republic. 

In closing my term as Assistant Quartermaster General, I wish to 
return my thanks to the Commander for the honor conferred upon me, 
to yourself, his staff, the Council of Administration and the comrades in

general for their uniform kindness, endearing words, and the many 
invitations to be with them, some which, unfortunately, I could not 
accept. As I stated one year ago, it takes time and some expense and 
often late hours, but I feel I am well repaid and shall hereafter when 
silent and alone, ponder over the past with pleasant recollections. 

I do not feel that I can close without a word of one whom, I think, 
has been our guiding star. Comrade Sample; a comrade true and tried, 
noble in thought, wise in action and trusted in advice. He has struck 
tents and answered the roll call with the majority on the other shore. 
We are all on the same march, those still left are only the left of the 
line, the last corps of the Grand Old Army for the preservation of the 
Union. 

Appended hereto are abstracts one to seven, showing in detail the 
business of my office during the fiscal year. 

Yours in F. C. & L., 

JOHN L. GRIM, 
Assistant Quartermaster General.

The foregoing summary and the tabulated report that follows show 
the splendid condition of the Department at the close of the fiscal 
year, June 30, 1905, and it proves conclusively as stated in former 
reports, that the night of Inspection is the one great night of the year 
in all the Posts: a larger number of members turn out and more in- 
terest is taken in the proceedings than on any other night. It has been 
my pleasure to visit a large number of Posts during the year, both as 
Inspecting Officer and as a visitor, and in all cases I have noted the in- 
terest displayed by the members of our grand organization. Too much 
praise cannot be bestowed on the boys for their attention to duty at 
their advanced age. It is* remarkable that a large number of our com- 
rades, who are active in the work, are over seventy years of age. They 
still have the love and interest in their comrades, as in days gone by, 
which proves the assertion that has been so often made, that no or- 
ganization in existence can compare in fraternal feelings as exist 
in the Grand Army of the Republic. I have had the pleasure to 
witness it on many an occasion, not only during the past year but 
in the many years our organization has existed. While it is true that 
many smiling faces are missed (our comrades having been mustered 
out), yet I firmly believe, taking into consideration the exposure and 
hardships endured by the boys from 1861 to 1865, our order will show a 
smaller death rate than any other body, or of men in any walk of life; 
a fact that we should all feel proud of. 

To the Assistant Inspectors-at-Large and the Assistant Inspectors of 
the various districts I desire to return my thanks for the work they 
have performed, and with so much satisfaction. 

To Department Commander J. Andrew Wilt I tender my thanks for the 
honor conferred in selecting me as a member of his official staff, and to 
yourself my thanks are due for courtesies received. 
Fraternally yours, 

ALEXANDER F. NICHOLAS. 
Department Inspector. 
12-^1906— G. A. R.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 199 



Report of Judge Advocate; 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of Judge Advocate, 
Somerset, May 21, 1906. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Sir and Comrade; I have the honor to submit my report for the year 
for which 1 was appointed. 

It is a pleasure to note the fact, that the comrades of this Depart- 
ment are fully alive to the laws governing our organization. 

During the entire year but one case was submitted to me, oife on 
which our laws have no bearing; this wds submitted from a Post direct 
to this office. I desire at this point to call attention to the fact that the 
"Judge Advocate" is the adviser of the Department Commander and 
all questions of law should be first submitted to him, and through him 
to his legal advisef. 

While my duties had been light as a dispenser of law, my association 
with my comrades in the Post rooms, and gatherings of a social char- 
acter, have made the recollections of the year now closing most pleas- 
ing in their character, I sincerely trust that we may all live for many 
more years to enjoy these pleasures, and that the harmony now exist- 
ing in the Department may long continue. 

Thanking the Department Commander for the confidence as expressed 
In my appointment, and yourself for the many courtesies extended. In 
which I also include my associates of the Staff, I am Sir, 

Yours in F. C. & L., 

D. J. HORNER, 
Judge Advocate.

200 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 



Report of Medical Director. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of Medical Director, 
Beaver Springs, May 19, 1906. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: The office of Medical Director is one that a Comrade elected 
to that positiion, has the pleasing knowledge that he enjoys the con- 
fidence of his Comrades, and while his duties have been made light by 
reason of legislation of the National Encampment, yet the honor con- 
ferred I assure you is highly appreciated by me. 

During the year I have attended many Post meetings in my imme- 
diate neighborhood, in addition to which I have been present at many 
Regimental and Association Reunions, keeping in touch with my Com- 
rades and doing in my humble way all that I could, to encourage the 
spirit of those who are striving so manfully, to keep their respective 
Post organizations In the front line. 

As the years come and go, it is evident that with each Increasing year, 
the infirmities incident to advancing age, are with alarming frequency 
depleting our ranks, and it simply means that we must "close up" and to 
the fullest extent in our power, continue the work for which we are 
banded together. 

At all times during the year, day or nigjit, I have stood ready to obey 
the call of my comrades to whom I could lessen pain or weaken disease, 
and one of the pleasant thoughts of my life is the fact, that I -have tried 
to be of service in that direction. 

Thanking you, and my Comrades of the Staff, for the uniform kind- 
ness extended, and the fraternal feeling manifested at all times, I re- 
main, 

Yours in F. C. & K, 

ALFRED M. SMITH, M. D. 
Medical Director.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 201 



Report of Patriotic Instructor. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 

Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of the Patriotic Instructor, 
Pittsburg, April 28, 1906. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General. 

My Dear Comrade: In compliance with your request of a recent date 
and fully appreciating the responsibility assigned to me, I hand you 
herewith the report of the first appointed Patriotic Instructor of the 
Department of Pennsylvania Grand Army of the Republic. 

Having been honored with this appointment, I felt in accepting the 
office, that I would find the duties, not merely perfunctory, but in 
truth, "manifold and laborious," requiring constant thought and activ- 
ity. My experience thus far has been a realization of this, but withal, 
pleasant. Interesting and instructive. 

In establishing a Department of Patriotic Instruction the Grand Army 
of the Republic, in my judgment, acted wisely and nothing It has 
ever done will receive greater commendation, approval and encourage- 
ment from the loyal people than this display of "unselfish patriotism." 
No one in this broad land of ours can afford to neglect any opportunity 
to further the interest in a cause that is tor the betterment and uplifting 
of its citizenship. 

Upon the acceptance of my appointment, I reported to Allan C* 
Bakewell, National Patriotic Instructor, and in due course received his 
acknowledgement and an outline of the duties of my office. Among 
his first recommendation was one for the appointment of "District 
Aides" and I had already done some work in that direction, >when this 
recommendation was withdrawn and instead one urging the appoinunent 
of an "Assistant Patriotic Instructor" in every Post. Both, by letter 
and In a personal Interview with me, Comrade Bakewell explained his 
object in making this change. I am now, more than ever, convinced 
that he acted judiciously, and no doubt, on the principle that "in the 
multitude of counselors there is safety." 

This question having been settled I issued, with the approval of the 
Department Commander, the circular of February 2nd, and followed it 
with that of March 22nd, (copies submitted herewith). There has been 
a gratifying response to these circulars and the prospects are most 
encouraging. It will, however, be apparent to all, that at this date, 
(April 28th), the assistants have scarcely more than received their 
appointments, and it is to bo regretted that no review of their labor

can be made at this time, other than that all are taking up the work 
with an earnestness that forecasts excellent results. Thus far the 
work has devolved mainly on me individually, and has been mostly 
of a preliminary character, and as the remainder of my term of office 
is short, I am obliged to leave it for my successor in office, to complete 
and perfect the organization of this branch of our Department. It is 
pleasing to note the revival of patriotic sentiments in the hearts of our 
Comrades, and that this new proposition, (as it seems to be to many 
of the Comrades), has created an interest in the Post meetings and 
elsewhere, beyond anything that has occurred in Grand Army circles 
In recent years. 

The past, with its glorious and sacred memories, shall ever remain 
with us, but we are living in the present and not in the past, and we 
shall never be old enough to turn aside and fall to make good use of 
the patriotic lessons we learned in the years of 61 to 65. 

Heretofore, the work in charge of Comrade Bake well has been confined 
to the schools, and while this is still the primary object, the work han 
been greatly broadened and we believe that the American people will 
solve wisely the* problems of the present and the future, as they have 
those of the past, and yet, without being pessimistic, we must recog- 
nize that the situation of this country to-day is one that demands 
serious and patriotic consideration. That this is appreciated by the 
people is evidenced by their increased interest In matters patriotic. 

Washington and Lincoln's birthdays, and Appomattox Day were cele- 
brated this year in all parts of our 'State, with more than the usual 
interest and the indications are that the remaining patriotic holidays 
of the year will be equally recognized and appropriately observed. 

The Comrades throughout the Department are already arranging for 
their annual visitations to the schools on the Friday preceeding 
Memorial Day. In this connection I am glad to report that the National 
Patriotic Instructor has called the special attention of all the Depart- 
ment Patriotic Instructors to, and commended the manner, in which 
this particular work is conducted by our Comrades in Philadelphia, 
and also for their earnestness in the preparations they are making 
for tne celebration of Flag Day. I am advised that the Comrades of 
gjcranton, Williamsport and several other cities are worthy of the 
same recognition as those of Philadelphia. As usual the posts will 
attend divine service on the Sunday preceding Memorial Day. This 
custom Is firmly established throughout the Department and from a 
patriotic standpoint, if not otherwise, is as impressive as the school 
visitations. 

Through the efforts of the Veteran Soldiers and Sailors of Allegheny 
County, a proposition was submitted to the citizens of the county 
at the last November election and approved almost unanimously, pro- 
viding for the erection of a Soldiers' Memorial Hall, to cost not less 
than one million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, ($1,250,000). 
A pleasing feature of the campaign was the distribution by the school

children of thousands of little cards with the United States flag and 
"vote for the Solders' Memorial Hall" printed on them. This was a 
splendid practical lesson in patriotic education. 

During the year, (first as Chief Mustering Officer and afterwards as 
Pati;iotic Instructor), I have made many visits to Posts, Camps of 
Sons of Veterans, public gatherings and schools, always being cor- 
dially received and granted hearings, in which I was not only an 
"Instructor" but was instructed as well. There being no appropriation 
for expenses or to provide patriotic literature, in the form of leaflets, 
for distribution, has been somewhat of a handicap. This is an import- 
ant matter and I recommend that the necessary action to provide 
such literature be taken by our Encampment in 'June. My successor 
should also be in a position to issue circulars to his assistants on any 
matter of moment that may come up, and this without any expense 
to himself, (aside from the "midnight oil" he uses in preparing them). 

I desire through you to convey my thanks to Commander Wilt for 
horfors conferred, to my assistants for their help and encouragement, 
and to you personally for assistance and courtesies shown. 

Fraternally yours, 

CHARLES O. SMITH. 
Patriotic Instructor.

204 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 



Report of Chief of Staff. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of the Chief of Staff, 
Bentley Creek. May 19, 1906. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Dear Comrade: I have the honor to submit my report for the year 
about ending. 

At the outset I wish to say that my appointment came to me un- 
sought, and against my wish and inclination. I realize that with the 
many other duties incumbent with me, that in some degree I have 
failed to measure up to the requirements of the position of Chief of 
Staff, and that the Department Commander could have selected a Com- 
rade more capable and competent for the position. But to err is human, 
to forgive is divine. The Department Commander and yourself possess 
the forgiving spirit. . 

I had the honor to accompany the Department Commander and his 
Staff on many visits of an official character, and recall with pleasant 
memories the fraternal ties that bind the boys of '"61 to '65," in bonds 
of love and good fellowship. 

The Comrades of this Department wherever I have met them, have 
extended a most royal welcome, a warm and cordial reception, at all 
times overflowing with the milk of human kindness, and the fraternity 
of comradeship. 

In this short report I wish to express to the Department Commander 
my thanks for the honor conferred upon me, of being one of his official 
family; to yourself I am under obligation for the many courtesies re- 
ceived at your hands, and trusting that we will meet many times ere we 
go to that happy land, and let that going be **far, far away." 

Yours in F. C. & L., 

E. M. TUTON, 
Chief of Staff.

The Department Commander: The next business in order will be the 
reception of communications from Posts. Now is the time, if you have 
any resolutions to present. 

Comrade Shook, Post 88< Commander, I move that all resolutions be 
referred to the Committee on Resolutions without reading. 

The motion having been seconded and the question put, it was agreed 
to. 

The following telegram was read by the Assistant Adjutant General: 

Scranton, June 6, 1906. Fred G. Amsden died June 5th; funeral June 
8th at 12.30 P. M. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: He was the Senior Vice Commander 
of the Department at one time; nearly every Comrade knew B*red 
Amsden, until he was stricken with the illness that kept him -confined 
to his house. 

The Department Commander: The next order of business is, reports 
of committees Are there any committees ready to report at this time? 

Past Commander in Chief Wagner: Commander and Comrades, I pro- 
mised you at Reading, and I am ready to live up to the promise, that 
if you made liberal contributions to the Stephenson Memorial Fund, I 
would not ask for any additional contribution. I come to report to-day 
and I am sure that you will be interested In the statement that I am 
about to make. 

When the National Encampment met at Denver, the total amount of 
the Stephenson Memorial Fund was about $12,000. The total amount now 
is nearly $23,000 and the end is not yet. 

An interesting incident in connection with the matter is this; the De- 
partment having the largest contribution to report was Pennsylvania 
and the others came trailing in behind. A gentleman by the name of 
Simmons from Kenosha, Wisconsin wanted to know how much it would* 
take to put Wisconsin at the head of the list. I told him about $2,500. 
Pennsylvania had at that time about $2,300 more than the others. He 
instructed me to draw on him for $2,500 in order that Wisconsin might

232 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. DEPT. OP PENNA.. 

be placed at the head of the list. I drew on him and secured the $2,500 
and put Wisconsin at the head of the list, but it didn't stay there. 

Since our last encampment at Reading, when the contributions were 
so liberal, additional amounts have been received from Posts in our 
Department and from individuals, and the total amount foots up to over 
$4,000 and it is the intention of some of us to make it $5,000 before we 
eret throuerh, the additional contributions received were nearly $1,700 so 
that 1 am sure you will be glad to know that Pennsylvania heads the 
list so far as the amount contributed is concerned by any one Depart- 
ment. 

Since this Memorial Fund was started, a question has arisen as to its 
character, and when the memorial i«< to be erected. When we started 
out we supposed we would get about $7,500 with which we would put up 
a statue of Dr. Stephenson, the organizer of the Grand Army of the 
Republic, but after awhile the thing stuck and we didn't know whether 
we would get even the $7,500, but wc went at it again last year, and we 
have at this time practically $25,000 and it has been thought advisable 
to enlarge the idea and instead of making it merely a Stephenson memo- 
rial, make it a Grand Army of the Republic Memorial. 

There is an Act of Congress pending and it will be looked after by Past 
Commander-in-Chief, Senator Warner, appointing a commission to se- 
lect a place for the location of this monument and this Act of Congress 
appropriates $10,000 toward the funds so that we shall have somewhere 
in the neighborhood of thirty to thirty-five thousand dollars to be used 
for the purpose, and that will put up something that will be a reminder 
for all time to come of the Grand Army of the Republic, something 
worthy of the Grand Army of the Republic, and something of a dignified 
character. What that will be, we cannot tell yet, but we are certain this 
joint resolution of Congress will pass, and we hope to have the memorial 
ready for unveiling in 1908. 

I make this statement. Commander and Comrades, because I know 
you are interested. This is simply for your benefit and not for the 
benefit of our fund. If any of you feel that you are not properly repre- 
sented, and you wish to contribute toward the fund, we will either 
print your name or print you as "cash" whichever way you want to 
have it done. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart: I notice. Commander, that when 
Commander Wagner gets hold of a project, he generally goes about the 
country sand-bagging everybody for money and when he gets that fever, 
it costs about $25 to say good-morning to him, and I was afraid pro- 
bably he was going to start in on the same kind of a campaign as he 
did last year, not satisfied with the fact that we headed the list of all 
the Departments. 

Personally I am entirely satisfied that this monument may be erected 
to the man who was known as the founder of the organization which we 
know as the Grand Army of the Republic, and I presume that under the 
operations of Comrade Wagner, we will have the $25,000.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLJC. 233 

Now I have said I am perfectly satisfied that the monument may be 
erected to Comrade Stephenson, but there are some Comrades in the 
Grand Army of the Republic who came into it in the later years, after 
General Wagrner came Into it, and after Comrade Gobin came in, and 
these Comrades have been doing some work to keep the Grand Army 
alive, and to continue the place in the hearts of the people that it has 
had up to this time. 

I have been selected and directed this morning to intrude upon the 
proceedings of this Encampment for a moment to give to Department 
Commander Wilt a token and evidence of the esteem in which he is 
held by the Comrades composing his staff, and individual Comrades of 
this Department, who were given an opportunity to subscribe, and they 
have purchased this magnificent watch and chain, something he can 
carry every day and look at every hour, and as often as he looks at it, 
it will recall the kindness and fraternal comradeship that prompted the 
Comrades who gave this to him. 

Speaking for them, I trust that the hours which it records and ticks 
off, may be hours of contentment and joy, days of honor and of peace, 
and that he may live many years to wear it, and as the years go by, 
may it bring to him the recollection that he lias not only served his 
country, his Post and this Department to the best of his ability, but 
also bring to his mind that he has affiliated with the Comrades of the ^ 
war for the Union which he has helped to preserve, and to make power- 
ful and strong. 

As Past Commander-in-Chief Stewart handed the beautiful watch and 
chain to Department Commander Wilt, he said, "Please accept these 
with the best wishes of the donors." (Applause.) 

The Department Commander: Comrade Stewart and Comrades of my 
staff, and Comrades of the Department of Pennsylvania, I can scarcely 
find words sufficient to express my feelings at this time. I feel, as 1 
said in my address. Comrades, 'that if my humble efforts as your De- 
partment Commander for the past year have merited your approval, I 
feel amply satisfied, and for this additional evidence of respect and your 
approval of my efforts in your behalf, I desire' most heartily to thank 
my staff for this valuable testimonial of their confidence. 

I shall look at this, and shall carry it with me as long as life shall 
last, and shall carry in memory and in mind all the kindnesses I have 
received as your Department Commander, and the only thing I regrret 
is this — I will carry in my mind's eye your faces; they shall be to me as 
plain as the hour hands and the second hands, or as the face on this 
watch — the only thin|r I regret is, that I cannot call every one of you by 
name and so recognize the friendships I made during the last year. 
This is the only regret I have, but I remember your faces and shall carry 
them in my mind as long as life shall last. 

Comrades, I believe I shall carry with me, your faces, your kindnesses 
and your comradeship both as members of the Grand Army of the

234 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PEJ^NA.. 

Republic, fellow citizens and human beings even after this life has gone. 
Again, I would say to each member of my staff and every Comrade of 
this Department, I thank you most heartily. 

The Assistant Adjutant General -.Commander and Comrades, I think 
it would be well to make a statement in reference to the funds sent to 
the Comrades of San Francisco. As soon as we could get in touch with 
the Department Commander, by direction of the Council of Administra- 
tion, he was directed to draw on the Assistant Quartermaster General 
for the $900 then in hand, and it was suggested that this fund, so far 
as it would go, should be given to the San Francisco Posts by means of 
which they could again get into standing, purchase furniture, and con- 
tinue their Post organizations, all of which they said in letters was ac- 
complished. Since then we have sent them an additional $500, making a 
total of $1,400 and the amount paid to date is $1,527.60. That amount has 
been paid directly through Department Headquarters; some Posts paid 
in* other directions. Of that we have no official knowledge, either as to 
the number of Posts nor the amoant contributed. 

I shall be glad to have the Commanders of Posts that contributed, 
write to Headquarters to whoever may be the next Assistant Adjutant 
General, stating their contributions, so that it may become a matter of 
record in general orders. 

Now, Commander, I think a motion at this time to take up the nom- 
inations for officers would be in order and would be a saving of time; I 
would also suggest that the Comrades prepare their tickets for represen- 
tatives to the next National Encampment and for members of the Coun- 
cil of Administration, which will be collected after the nominations for 
officers are made. * 

The motion having been seconded and the question put, it wai 
agreed to. « 

Past Department Commander Curtin made an announcement as to 
the dedication of the Curtin statue artd Centre County Soldier's monu- 
ment at Bellefonte and an invitation was extended to all members of the 
Encampment to attend that dedication on Friday, June 8th. 

The Assistant Adjutant General; The railroad company will run a 
special train provided there are one hundred Comrades or 100 persons to 
go on the train at the rate of $1.44 for the round trip, which is one fare. 

The Department Commander: It is now in order to make nominations 
for Department Commander for the ensuing year. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Gobin: Commander and Comrades, there 
are some duties that carry with them great pleasure, and great pleasure 
for many reasons, and the pleasure that comes to you and to me for 
reasons that appeal to your head and your heart, must necessarily be 
good reasons.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 235 

I rise to present to you the name of a Comrade whom I hope to see 
elected to fill the office so ably filled by Comrade Wilt and his illustrious 
predecessors. 

I present to you one of the youngest, one of the most devoted, one 
of the most earnest and satisfactory soldiers that I know of, who served 
during the war, and I know a great many of them. 

I learned to know this boy right after he came home from the war. 
I found him teaching school in a little school house in Lebanon county.* 
Not only did he serve his time as a soldier, but in addition to that, he 
was sent as a soldier across the plains, and i>erformed his duty there, 
coming back at last in his old blue uniform, and he went into a little 
country school house to teach the young, lessons of liberty and patriot- 
Ism and love of country. 

He never rode at the head of a regiment or battalion, never marched 
at the head of a company, but he marched in his column of fours and 
marched well wherever he was ordered to go. 

In these latter days as a citizen, he has always been found march- 
ing in line with the Grand Army of the Republic, and has been a member 
of the Post with which I have the honor of being connected and of which 
I was a charter rhember. 

He has established for himself a reputation and a record for good 
citizenship second to none. As a soldier, as a citizen and as a man of 
affairs, and as a Comrade of the Grand Army of the Republic, it Is 
not necessary for me to indulge in laudations of him. 

Look at the record of his regiment; whever his cavalry regiment went. 

Look at the record of his regiment; wherever his cavalry regiment 
went, he went with it. He swung his sabre well. Mosby met him on one 
occasion and captured him and put him in Libby. They marched him 
through the snow with his bare feet. 

The Comrade I present for your choice, with the full assurance that 
in his selection you will make no mistake, I repeat, is a soldier, a citi- 
zen, a man of affairs, a lover of his country, and his name is Milton A. 
Gherst. (Applause.) 

Comrade L. W. Moore: Post 1, Philadelphia. Commander and Com- 
rades, I rise to say a word for a Cqmrade who was in the old 14th Penn- 
sylvania Cavalry, and the Comrades that are here from the old state 
of Allegheny know that no better regiment than that commanded by 
Col. Jim Schoonmaker was in our late war. 

It is true that the Comrade served in the Cavalry, but that should not 
be held against him. He was a good boy, a boy from the farm, a boy 
who had no military training, a boy who had no military knowledge, 
but a boy of sixteen when he enlisted, who had no knowledge of the 
comparative ease of the doughboy nor of the dangers, sufferings and 
privations that were the lot of the cavalry. He wanted to serve his 
country and wanted to serve Lebanon county, and he enlisted. I don't 
have to tell you because any one in the regiment can tell you that Mil- 
ton A. Gherst was one of the bravest and best soldiers in the command 
of Col. Jim. Schoonmaker.

236 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

I heartily endorse the nomination of Comrade Gherst for Department

Gherst be elected Department Commander by acclamation. 

It was moved and seconded that the nominations close for Depart- 
ment Commander, which was agreed to. 

Several Comrades seconded the motion of Past Commander-in-Chief 
Beath, and the motion being put, it was agreed to. 

The Department Commander: No objections being made, tl»c ballot 
will be dispensed with, and the election of Department Commander will 
be by viva voce vote. 

After the vote was taken, the Department Commander declared Com- 
rade Milton A. Gherst of Post 42, Lebanon, unanimously elected by ac- 
clamation as Department Commander for the ensuing year amid great 
applause. 

The Department Commander: Nominations for Senior Vice Department 
Commander are now in order. 

Comrade Holgate of Post 211: Department Commander and Comrades, 
it affords me great pleasure to present the name of a Comrade who 
served in the same regiment as myself who enlisted in the Sixth Regi- 
ment of Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteers as a private soldier, and car- 
ried his musket in the ranks of that regiment and who was afterwards 
transferred to the 141st Pennsylvania Volunteers and lost his leg in the 
service of his country, a man who stands practically as the leader of the 
bar of Tioga county. I want to present to you a fit running mate for 
the distinguished Comrade who has just been elected Department Com- 
mander and I present to you the name of Comrade George W. Merrick, 
of Wellsboro, Tioga county for the office of Senior Vice Department Com- 
mander for the ensuing year. 

The Department Commander: Are there any further nominations for 
Senior Vice Department Commander? 

It was moved and seconded that the nominations for Senior Vice De- 
partment Commander close. 

The question being put, was agreed to.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLJC. 237 

The Department Commander: If there are no objection, the election 
will be by acclamation. 

There being no objection, the election proceeded by acclamation and 
the Department Commander declared Comrade Greorgre W. Merrick,* of 
Wellsboro, Tioga county, duly elected Senior Vice Department Com- 
mander for the ensuing year. 

The Department Commander: Nominations for Junior Vice Depart- 
ment Commander are now in order. 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157: Commander and Comrades, I take it 
that there is no greater commendation that can be accredited to a Com- 
rade of the Grand Army of the Republic than to truthfuflly say that he 
was a faithful soldier, a good citizen, and a consistent member of the 
Grand Army of the Republic. The Comrades of the West have. assigned 
to me the duty and to me the benor of presenting to this Encampment 
the name of a Comrade that in every manly way fills the qualifications 
I have named. The Comrades of the 71st/ Pennsylvania Volunteers join 
in commending the services of the Comrade that I will name for the 
office of Junior Vice Department Commander: He came home from the 
service in that splendid organization and he entered upon a business life 
that has been wonderfully successful to hiniself and greatly beneficial to 
the community in which he resides. 

He represents Post 518 in a little town known as East Bethlehem in 
Washington county. The Post is small in numbers but large in frater- 
nity. I know personally that he has been one of the most active, 
earnest, sincere Comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic in the 
work of that locality. 

I take very great pleasure. Comrades, in naming for Junior Vice De- 
partment Commander of this Department, Comrade Joseph E. Clark of 
William Horton Post, No. 518 East Bethlehem, Washington county. 

Comrade Amos D. Hutchinson, Past 87, Allentown, Pa.; Department 
Commander and Comrades, I rise to put in nomination a Comrade who 
4ost his eye in the service. He has been the Commander of his Post for 
live years. This Comrade is A. S. Moyer of Post 13, Allentown. 

. It was moved and seconded that the nominations how close which was 
agreed to. 

Comrade Moyer, Post 13: Department Commander and Comrades, I 
rise to decline to be a candidate for the office of Junior Vice Department 
Commander, as we have an esteemed Comrade nominated for that office 
from East Bethlehem, I therefore withdraw my name. 

Past Conimander-in-Chief Stewart: Department Commander, I move 
that the Junior Vice Commander be elected by acclamation as there is 
but one candidate, Comrade Moyer having just declined. ,

I wish to second the nomination of Comrade Albert M. Smith for Medi- 
cal Director. I want to say to the Comrades of this Department that 
Comrade Smith has satisfactorily filled that position, he is a good Grand

The Assistant Adjutant General: I would now ask that the nomina- 
tions for Council of Administration be made by ballot and the tickets 
prepared with the number and location of the Posts and the Comrades 
named for representatives. 

In order to avoid mistakes, I will put the box right here and as some 
mistakes have been made in the i»rst in nominating representatives, I 
would request that the Comrades be careful, putting only one name on 
a card, so that mistakes may be avoided. 

Past Commander-in-Chief S-tewart: Commander, will you allow me 
to intrude Just a moment. Now time is valuable and we will waste it if 
we undertake to do that. There are only five Comrades to be elected, 
members of the Council of Administration, and I hope that the sugges- 
tion of the Assistant Adjutant General will not prevail, that we put 
the names of the Council of Administration ijn one box and the names 
of the representatives to the National Encampment in another. I. do 
not think there are a great number of Comrades to be nominated for the 
Council of Administration, and valuable time can be made use of In 
the preparation of the tickets. 

The names of John Dougherty, Post 8, Philadelphia, Theodore F. Tur- 
ner, Post 31, H. T. Stan wood. Post 334; Lemon Buch, Post No. 16; Jonas 
H. Detry, Post No. 6; Charles Rodebaugh, Post 312; Wm. H. Dayis, 
Post 54, Coatesville, were nominated for Council of Administration. 

Comrade Gerwig: Commander, I move that when we adjourn It be 
until 2 o'clock. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: I move that these names be printed 
In alphabetical order. Motion seconded. 

The Department Commander: We will direct that to be done. 

Those who desire to nominate Comrades for representatives to the Na- 
tional Encampment, will do so by writing their names, the number of 
their Posts and the location, and c'c posit the ballots in the box which 
will be placed at the door. 

Motion to adjourn was seconded, and the Encampment adjourned to 
2 o'clock P. M. 

Opera House, Altoona, 2 P. M. Wednesday, June 6, 1906. 

The Encampment was called to order by the Department Commander

two notes, one from the Mayor of the city of Easton, and another one 
from, a dear old Comrade of this Department who through sickness was 
unable to be with us to-day. He was designated as the one to present 
our beautiful city as a candidate for the next Encampment, hence I am 
before you to perform that duty; I refer to Comrade Past Senior Vice 
Commander of this Department (under the lamented Tom^ Sample) 
Charles F. Chidsey. 

Commander and Comrades of the Department of Pennsylvania, I place 
before you the city of Easton, the beautiful queen city of the Upper 
Delaware in which to hold your next annual Encampment. 

We have forty thousand patriotic people there who are always en- 
thusiastic over the veterans. One Comrade of Lafayette Post has ob- 
tained pledges of enough and more than enough to cover the expenses 
of the Department Encampment from Easton, from this old soldier lov- 
ing people. 

The Almighty Creator has been lavish in adorning our Lehigh Valley 
with natural scenery of remarkable beauty. At the forks of the Dela- 
ware stands our attractive city. Like huge sentinels all around it stand 
the grand and majestic mountains, picturesque glens abound, and trolley 
cars run in every direction possible. New York and Philadelphia are 
only two hours away by rail, and innumerable parks and pleasure re-

sorts are easily accesible. There are plenty of hotels of well known ex- 
cellence, and the people are noted for hospitality. No convention 
whether civic, politicaF or religious was ever held there that the dele- 
gates did not become enthusiastic over the generous and warmhearted' 
treatment they received at Easton. 

Comrades, our shadows are lengthening fast as we near the setting 
sun of this life's Journey, and these shadows are pointing to the east- 
ward; follow them in spirit and come to Easton, on the eastern border of 
the State for your next Encampment. 

In the name of tlje 300 Comrades of Lafayette Post, and over 40,000' 
fellow citizens, I appeal to you to come to EJaston. 

I have also in my hand a letter from the Mayor of the city which I 
will read. 

Easton, Pa., June 2, 1906. 

To the Grand Army of the Republic, in Encampment at Altoona, Pa.: 

As Mayor of the city of Easton, I desire most heartily to Invite you to hold your 
next annual encampment for the year 1907 at the city of Elaston. Our city Is situated 
at the Junction of the Delaware, the Lehigh and the Bushkill, surrounded by the 
Blue Mountains and all the great State railroads connect with our city. 

The hospitality of our citizens has often been demonstrated, and Its loyalty at- 
tested by the hundreds of patriotic men borne upon your roster. 

If you come to Easton, the city will welcome you as heroes of the great war for 
the Union should be welcomed, and the city corporation will join with your brotheni 
in arms who are settled here in making your visit a notably pleasant one. 

Respectfully yours, 

S. H. MARCH, 
Mayor." 

We have never come before this Encampment to ask for vour Con- 
vention at our place before and every place wherever this Encampment 
has been held, Lafayette Post, with our 300 members has been present, 
not only with her delegates, but often with her whole command. We 
went to Gettysburg year after year; we went to different places where 
our Encampment has been held. Only last year, you remember, we 
came to Reading with 175 men in full uniform, and paid their expenses 
while in the city, jwhich cost our Post $500. 

As I say. Comrades, wherever an Encampment has been held within 
two or three hundred miles, Lafayette Post h%,s always been represented, 
and I think we merit your recognition, when our people have their arma^ 
outstretched and waiting and appealing to you to come. 

We have $1,600 already pledged i and $500 more In sight. 

Comrades, I appeal to you to come to Easton, and you will never for- 
get it, much less regret it. 

Comrade Ziegler, Post 9, Gettysburg: Department Commander and 
Comrades, at the special request of Post 9 of Gettysburg I extend to 
this Department a most cordial invitation to hold their next Encamp- 
ment at Gettysburg. Now in that connection. Department Commander, 
I want to say that I have on a number of occasions heretofore, invited 
this Department to Gettysburg, but on all those occasions it was upon 
the solicitatidn of the Citizens' Committee of that town.

242 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

Now on this occasion I come here direct from our Post 9 with our 
special and cordial invitation that this Departmejit meet and hold their 
annual Encampment at Gettysburg next year, and I want to say further 
that if you will vote to come to Gettysburg next year, that Post 9 will 
look after you and take charge of you, and attend to your wants while 
there, in such a manner that I know you will not regret coming there, 
and it will be our aim to give you the best time you ever had. 

Come there, and we will give you a royal good time, as we have always 
on every occasion, and bring your wives and bring your children and 
grandchildren with them, and show them where the Grand Army fought 
the greatest battle of the war. 

You can spend the entire week going over that battlefield, and at the 
end of that week, commence and go over it again. I ask you, where can 
you go any place else in this God blessed State of ours, where there is 
so much to interest you. Where can you go where there is so much of 
interest as there is at Gettysburg? 

I want to say further, that every hotel in Gettysburg has changed 
^ands. (Laughter and applause and cries of "It was high time") within 
the last year every hotel has changed hands and we have impressed upon 
them the importance of taking good care of the Grand Army of the 
Republic, and I have assured them that if I hear any more complaints 
about the hotels of Gettysburg that I never again will stand up in the 
Department of Pennsylvania and invite them to come to Gettysburg, so 
you may have no fears but that we will take good care of you. 

I heard quite a number of complaints about the charge of ten cents 
to Little Round Top, and I see an apparent reference to that on the 
cards of our friends from Easton. They say that the trolley cars will 
not increase their prices if you go to Easton. It was necessary four 
years ago for that trolley company to increase its prices from five to 
ten cents. It takes them one hour to make that trip. I pay it and 'every- 
body else pays it, and they have paid it ever since. 

I want to go on a little bit farther and say this; it was publicly 
given out on your stage this morning that the Pennsylvania Railroad 
Company would run an excursion tonight from the Pennsylvania depot 
leaving at a quarter after five and coming back at six o'clock and 
charging you 50 cents apiece. That is for a ride of three quarters of an 
hour. Now it requires a full hour to make a round tri-p to Round Top, 
and for that trip you pay 20 cents. Now why do you say that the 
charge of twenty cents at Gettysburg should be complained of. wheTi 
you are willing to pay 50 cents at Altoona for a trip of three quarters of 
an hour? I think it is all. in favor of Gettysburg. 

I do hope that you will all vote to come to Gettysburg next year and 
we will take care of you. Our Post will be there to meet you when you 
come, and will look after you while you are there, and will give you a 
God-speed when you leave, and I hope you will all vote to come to 
Gettysburg. (Applause.)

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLJC. 243 

Past Department Commander Curtin: Commander, I would like to 
ask the Comrade what the distance is to the top of Round Top? 

Comrade Ziegler: It depends altogether upon how long it takes to get 
thfere. I think if you would ask any old rebel soldier, he would tell 
you that it is about 5C0 miles. The way we go now it is about four miles 
up there and four miles back. 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157: Departmeht Commander and Comrades, 
I feel like extending my sympathy to Comrade Zeigler and to Post 9. I 
know these men well, but if there is one thing that we have learned in 
this world it is this, that experience is a great teacher, and we have had 
Che experience. (Laughter and applause.) 

It may be possible that there are better men who have secured control 
of the hotels in Gettysburg. I hope to God for the sake of the people 
who have to go there, that they are better. It does seem to me that 
we had best give those fellows a little probation; wait a little while, 
and let somebody else go there and tell us about how they are doing. 

No convention was ever treated so contemptibly mean anywhire or tt 
any place wherever the Encampment has been in the history of the De- 
partment of Pennsylvania, since its organization, as the Comrades ot 
the Grand Army of the Republic of this State were treated in Gettysburg 
by the hotel people. (Applause.) 

So fax as I am concerned, Comrades, I do not want to go to Gettys- 
burg, until I have positive assurances that the whole condition of things 
is changed there, and I tell you that the day has gone by when I will 
permit or allow any people in this country to profit off my Comrades be- 
yond what is reasonable. Now let us be fair and sensible in Judging 
of these conditions, and let us s-ay to the boys that have to go to this 
Encampment next year, that we have considered their comfort, and 
let us go to Easton. We will be treated well there, because it 13 
a much larger place, and we know what the Comradeship of Lafayette 
Post is. We know also what the railroad conveniences are, or rather 
the inconveniences for reaching Gettysburg, while Easton is so situated 
that we will have convenient railroad facilities for getting there, and I 
hope the Comrades will vote to go to Easton. (Applause.) 

Comrade Lantz, Post 42: Commander and Comrades, I am delighted 
with this discussion this afternoon. I am delighted for various reasons. 
We all take great interest in Gettysburg so far as its history — its won- 
derful history is concerned, but there are other things that are to be 
taken into consideration when we go to hold our annual Encampment. 
The first is railroad facilities. You can start at Harrisbursr at eight 
o'clock and you will be at Easton, probably, before ten o'clock and 
that is one great consideration. If you go to Gettysburg, you can't tell 
always when you .will get there, and there is another thing; when we 
go to an Encampment, we go for business. Gettysburg is such a well- 
known place because of Its history, and reminiscences of the war in

244 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

which the grreater part of us have taken part, that we have been upon 
the grround repeatedly since, we have looked at every monument that is 
there, we know what they are and what they represent, we have studied 
the map and the history of Gettysburg, and have frequently been over 
the field, so that we see nothing new now when we go there, but the 
tendency of Comrades is to go out upon the field with the result that 
we are likely to have slim audiences in our business meetings. 

If you want to go there, and want to visit Gettysburg, go there indi- 
vidually; if you have never been there, go there and study the battle- 
field, but when we have an Encampment, we go for business and not 
to take trolley rides, simply to get over the ground, nor do we go there 
simply for the purpose of paying fifty cents or a dollar to some hack 
driver, liveryman or battlefield guide. In going there, the result is, that 
we lose time and interest in the business of the Encampment, and are 
likely to get away from our duties and responsibilities, simply for the 
sake of sight seeing. 

I am for Easton in that wonderful section of country at the forks of 
the Delaware. We love the Comrades there, and we shall enjoy the de- 
lightful scenery, and I say, grive the boys of Lafayette Post a chance 
to entertain us, as they desire. Let us go there, and let us have one jf 
the grandest conventions that the Department ever experienced. 

Comrade Kirk, Post 462, New Cumberland: Department Commander 
and Comfades, I want to say that I live within thirty-six miles of 
Gettysburg but I am for Easton. (Applause.) 

Comrade McCarthy, Post 21, Philadelphia: Commander and Comrades, 
I do not think the Comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic are 
dead beats, and want to be fed for nothing, as Comrade Bengough in- 
timated that the people of Gettysburg charge a profit on what they fur- 
nish to the Comrades who go there; we expect a man to live. 

We have a patriotic instructor and we go around to the schools to in- 
struct the children about being patriotic, and here we «ire assembled to 
boycott one of the noblest places on God's earth. 

The Comrade on the other side said, there is so much to see, that the 
Comrades will not properly attend to the business of the Convention. I 
believe according to the report there are 800 Comrades— 800 delegates 
connected with this convention. Now where are they? Wouldn't you 
have a larger convention in Gettysburg? I think if we are going to take 
such ground as has been taken upon this floor, we would better do away 
with the patriotic instructor. 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157: Department Commander, I want to say 
one word in answer to the Comrade. I certainly am willing to pay and 
want to pay and do pay for everything I get but I want everything that 
I pay for. (Applause) and that is precisely what we dpn't get at Gettys- 
burg, and there are Comrades here from all over this Department who 
know that my statement is true.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLJC. 245 

A whole lot of beautiful things can be said about Gettysburg, and I 
like the Comrades of Post 9. There is no Comrade of this Department 
that I have a higher regard for than Comrade Ziegler, who is pleading 
to-day for Gettysburg, but I am not carried away by methods of that 
kind. I work every day in the interests of the Grand Army of the 
Republic, every day I am doing something, and let me tell you. Com- 
rades, make no mistake about it, you vote for Easton. 

Comrade Ziegler, Post 9: Department Commander and Comrades, 
Gettysburg is my home, and the people of- Gettysburg have as warm a 
regard for the Comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic asL you will 
find in any place in the Commonwealth. When I go to a hotel and find 
it too full, or cannot get accommodation, or fail to get what I am paying 
for, I pick up my little grip and go to some place else, and so you can 
at Gettysburg. If you go to one place, and the conditions there are not 
satisfactory, and you remain there, that is your fault. There is any 
amount of accommodation to be had in Gettysburg if you just look for 
it. You can get as much for your money in Gettysburg as you can in 
any other place in this United States of America, I don't care where you 
go, whether it Is Altoona pr any other place. You havn't got to put up 
with poor accommodations at Gettysburg, if they are given to you, all 
you have to do is to look around and you can find plenty of good places 
where the accommodations will be satisfactory. 

Comrade Powell, Post 151, Pittsburg: Department Commander and 
Comrades, I confess I am a little surprised at some of the arguments 
that have been advanced against Gettysburg. I have been there twenty 
times or more. • If these people want to reform, let's give them a chance. 
The only way that we can demonstrate whether they want to do it or 
not, is to give them the opportunity. 

Now I would ask, how long does it take to get from Harrisburg to' 
Easton, and how long does it take to get from Pittsburg to Easton? 

One Comrade said he lived only 36 miles from Gettysburg and yet 
he was in favor of going to Easton. If we all lived that near to Gettys- 
burg we would not want to go there, either, so I do not think that his 
argument amounted to very much. 

Now there is one thing that is true, Comrades, as the years go by, a 
great many of our Comrades are answering the last roll call. Some of 
us have attended these Encampments many a time when there were ten 
or eleven hundred delegates present, but our Posts are diminishing in 
number, and it is apparent that it is difficult to keep up the interest and 
secure the attendance that we used to have at our Encampments, but 1 
want to say to you that we can get three times as many Comrades to 
Gettysburg as we can to any other place, and the reason for It is that 
they can go there with their wives and children and grandchildren, and 
not only have a pleasant time grreeting the delegates, but there they 
meet a great many Comrade" that are not delegates that go there in

246 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

order to have an enjoyable time. I didn't intend to say only a word to 
you, only I wanted to meet these erguments and I wanted to take up 
your time for just a moment or two to give you an opportunity to con- 
sider this matter. 

I want to say this, a great many of us that would spend the time in 
this Encampment even if we went to Gettysburg, would be glad to takt-* 
some portions of our families with us, who would enjoy a visit to that 
field. 

For one, I say, that if the people of Gettysburg are willing to reforni 
and if the hotels have charged hands, so that we are likely to be well 
aecomnwdated there, as Comrade Zlegler assures us will be the cr.so, 
let them have a chance to demonstrate what they claim. 

The Department Commander: All of you who are in favor of going to 
Easton at our next Annual Encampment, will please say aye. 

To this the response was a thunderous aye. 

Opposed, no. 

Upon the vote a division was asked for, whereupon a rising vote was 
taken, and the result after the count was Completed by the Assistant 
Adjutant General was announced as follows: 

Gettysburg, 69. 

Easton, 245. 

The Department Commander: As Easton has been selected as the 
place for our 41st Annual Encampment to be held next year, you can 
all go to Easton and is it so ordered. 

The chairman of the committee appointed to consider the report of 
the Assistant Adjutant General, informs me that his committee is ready 
to report, and he asks leave to present it now as he wishes to take the 
next train for home. 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157, Chairman, presented and read the re- 
port of the committee appointed to consider the report of the Assistant 
Adjutant General. 

Altoona, June 6, 1906. 

To the Commander, Officers and Members of the 40th Annual Encampment, Depart- 
ment of Pennsylvania, Grand Army of the Republic: 

Comrades: The Committee, to which was referred the report of the Assistant Ad- 
jutant General, respectfully submits the following: 

Your committee has given the subject matter of the report of the Assistant Adjutant 
General the most careful consideration, and commend him for the clear, concise 
information therein presented to the comrades of the Department. 

We sincerely regret that the officers of twenty-one Posts, as noted, have thus far 
failed to transmit to the Assistant Adjutant General the semi-annual returns of their 
Posts, as required by the Rules and Regulations. There can be no excuse for such 
dereliction of duty. 

It Is gratifying to note that, notwithstanding the loss by death during the year

of 1,055 comrades, the membership of the Department shows a net gain of 200, a 
clear evidence of good work performed. 

Words are InadequatCfcto properly and fully express the appreciation on the part of 
the Committee, of the splendid and valuable services rendered this Department, and 
the Grand Army of the Republic, by Asslsts^nt Adjutant General Suydam. He Is 
entitled to the thanks of every Comrade for his faithfulness to duty. His work is 
always well done; he Is ever alert to advance the Interests of our Order; always 
courteous and obliging; he possesses the qualities that are necessaiy for the posi- 
tion he haa so ably filled. 

We fully realize that the past year has been an exceedingly trying one to him, 
due to the fact that death has claimed so very many of his nearest and dearest 
comrades, those who were ever ready to uphold and cheer him on In his arduous 
labor of love and fraternity. 

In conclusion, we earnestly join In the hope and prayer that his life and useful- 
ness to his comrades cf this Department may be spared for many years.

Committee. 

The Department Commander: What will the Encampment do with the 
report? 

It was moved and seconded that the report be received, adopted and 
filed, which was agreed to. 

The officer of the day reported a delegation from the Woman's Relief 
Corps, and Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic at the outpost 
with their escorts. 

The Encampment was called upon to rise and the ladies were escorted 
to the platform. 

The Department Commander: Ladies, we are glad to receive y,ou here. 
I am sure that the Comrades will all agree with me— the dear ladies, 
what could we do without them? We are glad that you are with us, 
and we are glad to receive your fraternal greetings, and we hope that 
we will have the pleasure of meeting with you for many years to come. 

The Department Commander: I take pleasure. Comrades, in presenting 
to you Mrs. Evans of the Women's Relief Corps. 

Mrs. Evans: Department Commander and Comrades, I have been in- 
structed that the best course to follow here was to look pleasant and be 
brief. We know that you have work on hand which requires your g^tten- 
tion, and we aleo have our work pending, and the election of officers. 

It afCords us a great deal of pleasure to come here and bring you the 
report that Mrs. Riebling has just read to you, and we want you to un- 
derstand that we are disposed, and are just as ready as we ever were, 
to do all we possibly can Tor you. 

I think you have heard in listening to the report of your Department 
Commander, of some of the work that the women are doing. For eight 
years I had the pleasure and the horior of being in that Home of which 
you all know, as Superintendent, and I think, if we did nothing else 
but continue the good work that has been done there for so many years,

that we are doing there. • 

I thank you for this opportunity of coining here and bringing you the 
greetings of the Women's Relief Corps, and I will not take up any more

to bring the greetingrs of the Women's Relief Corps. I feel it to 
be a great honor and pleasure to be permitted to meet so many of the 
heroes of the Civil War, and to renew our pledges of loyalty and fidelity 
to you. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander: Comrades, these Ladies of the Relief 
Corps desire to retire. They say they have a contest on at their con- 
vention for the election of officers, and they are anxious to return, zo 
we will arise while they retire. 

The Encampment was called upon to rise, and the Ladies of the 
Women's Relief Corps retired under escort and while they were retiring 
were greeted by the cheers of the Comrades composing the Encamp- 
ment.

The Department Commander: It is my pleasure to present to you Mrs. 
Ella Jones, Past Department President of the Ladies of the Grand 
Army of the Republic of Pennsylvania and her associates who have been 
appointed as a committee to convey the greetings on behalf of the 
Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic of Pennsylvania to this En- 
campment. 

I piesent the National President of the Ladies of the Grand Army of 
the Republic. (Applause.) 

Mrs. Coats, National President of the Ladies of the Grand Army of 
the Republic: Department Commander and Veterans, I am always proud 
to be able to bring to you the greetings of the Ladies of the Grand Army 
of the Republic. I bring to you the greetings of the national body, 
which I have the honor to represent. 

Many of your faces I remember seeing at oilr convention last year, 
and you know whether Denver proved to be a royal entertainer or not. 
I was more than pleased to have the pleasure of being here with our 
Ladies in their Department Convention. From Denver to Missouri and 
Lincoln, Nebi:aska, I had the pleasure of being with your Commander- 
in-Chief Tanner, and Mrs. Adams, National President of the Women's 
Relief Corps. We were also present together at Lafayette, Indiana. 
From that place they went west and I came on here; all the same I want 
to bring to you their greetings and say to you, as the wife of a veteran— 
for I have been one for thirty-nine years, and I wouldn't know how to 
live with any other kind of a man — that my heart and soul is in thi^ 
work, not as your auxilliary, that honored place belongs to a grand 
and noble body of women, but as the wife of a veteran, and as the repre- 
sentative of the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Ilepublic. 

I will hot take any more of your time, but I wish you all God-speed 
and thank you. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander: I have the pleasure of presenting to 
you Mrs. Ella Jones, Past Department President of the Ladies of the 
Grand Army of the Republic. 

Mrs. Ella Jones, Past Department President of the Ladies of the Grand 
Army of the Republic: Department Commander and Comrades, I bring 
to you the greetings of 325 of your mothers* wives, sisters and daughters, 
members of the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, assembled 
at this place. 

I know that you are busy and we are busy; we are just getting into 
the election of our officers — as I met Colonel Beath coming up the stairs, 
he said, "Make your speeches brief" and I intend to follow his sugges- 
tion. We bring to you the love that only mothers, daughters, sisters 
and wives can offer you. 

As the years go by, you only grow dearer and come closer and closer 
into relationship to that organization, and we wish you God-speed in 
your work, and we know that we will take back with us the best wishes

of your organization. Our work is not only to help the Grand Army of 
the Republic where it is needed, but we are proud of two organizations 
in Pennsylvania, which are under our direction, taking care of the 
mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of your Comrades who have 
passed away, one of them in the western part of the State near Pitts- 
burg, where we have a home for those mothers, wives, sisters and 
daughters, and we have sixty-six at present in that Home, and many 
more have been there. We have another home for veterans and their 
wives, and it is one of our greatest pleasures to be able to receive and 
take care of these mothers, wives, sisters and daughters as they come 
to us. 

Now I will close my remarks, only saying that as long as you live, you 
will have your mothers, wives, sisters and daughters right with you. 
(Applause.) 

The Department Commander: Comrades, I take pleasure in presenting 
to you Mrs. Shannon, Past National President of the Ladies of the 
Grand Army of the Republic. 

Mrs. Ada L. Shannon, Past National President of the Ladies of the 
Grand Army of the Republic; Department Commander and Comrades, 
I feel very highly honored to-day in being selected to bring to you the 
greetings from the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic. 

We are justly proud of being able to wear this badge which indicates 
the purpose of our organization, which is assembled about a block away. 

I feel that as the years go by, we are drawn closer and closer together. 
As your National Commander has announced, your Comrades are pass- 
ing away at the rate of some 50,000 a year. 

I feel proud to be able to be here, and to have been selected to bear 
the greetings and the love of our organization to this Encampment. 
Comrades, I thank you. (Applause.) 

Mrs. Linda Heald, of Circle 94, favored the Encampment with a reci- 
tation entitled "The Boon I Crave," which was received with apprecia- 
tion and applause. 

The Department Commander: Comrades, I take pleasure in present- 
ing to you Mrs. Emma M. Bennett, of Circle 91. 

I 

Mrs. Bennett: Commander and Comrades, I wish to extend to you, 

the greetings of the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic and to 
bid you God-speed in your work. I do not intend to take up your time 
v/ith a speech. (Applause.) 

Mrs. Shannon: Past National President of the Ladies of the Grand 
Army of the Republic: Department Commander and Comrades, I wish 
to extend to you all an invitation to attend the reception to be given 
by the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic this evening at the 
Methodist church.

then retired, under escoit, the Encampment being called upon to rise, 
and as they retired, they were also greeted with hearty cheers.

committee appointed to extend the fraternal greetings of the Commander 
and Comrades of the Department of Pennsylvania, Grand Army of the 
Republic to the Womans' Relief Corps, beg leave to report that they 
have performed the duty assigned to them, which was an entirely new 
and very pleasant one. We were very much gratified with ouf reception, 
and I think we might ad<^ that the committee would like to be continued 
indefinitely. (Laughter.) 

The Department Commander: If there are no objections, the report 
will be received and the committee discharged. 

James E. Porter, of Post 3: Department Commander, as chairman of 
the committee appointed to act upon the report of the Assistant Quar- 
termaster General, I wish to announce that the committee is now ready 
to present its report. 

Altoona, June 7, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Sir and Comrade: Your Committee, to which was referred the report of the As- 
sistant Quartermaster General, beg leave to submit the following:: 

The report is full and explicit^ containing: in detail an account of all receipts and 
disbursements. It is not within the scope of this Committee to examine bills and 
vouchers, these, we understand, having already been audited by the Council of Ad- 
ministration. We would, however, recommend that a copy of the Auditor's Report 
accompany the report of the Assistant Quartermaster General. 

The financial condition shows that the receipts from per capita tax are gradually 
decreasing, and that rigid economy must be exercised. 
His work meets with our warmest commendation.

252 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA.. 

The Department Commander: Are there any other reports now ready, 
from any of the committees? 

I am informed' that the tickets to be printed for the Council of Admin- 
istration are not yet here. What is the pleasure of the Encampment? 

Department Chaplain John W. Sayers: Department Commander and 
Comrades, I would like to say a word to you before you are scattered 
this afternoon and that Is in regard to the report made by the Chaplain 
In regard to Memorial services. A part of the reports have come in, but 
of course a great number are out. I wish yo\i would be kind enough to 
see that your reports come in just as early as possible. 

I am expected to make the report to the Chaplain-in-Chief by the first 
of July, while some of the reports do not reach me until the end of 
September. Of course it is not your Post but it is somebody's Post, and 
it does not do justice to the Department. I can't make the report when 
I havn't got it, and so when you go home I wish you would tell them 
to make their reports just as complete and quickly as they can, and I 
shall be much obliged to you. 

The Assistant Adjutant General presented and read the report of the 
committee appointed to. act upon the report of the Council of Adminis- 
tration.

Oomrade: We, as a committee to which was referred the report of the Council 
of Administration, begr leave to report that the aftalrs of the Department, under the

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Your Committee on the report of. the Judge Advocate submits its report, as fol- 
lows: 

The Department cf Pennsylvania, Grand Army of the Republic, may well be con- 
gratulated upon the fact that the past record of the comradeship shows that the 
members of the Grand Army are a law abiding and order loving people, giving very 
little business for the Judge Advocate to attend to.

Altoona, J\me 6, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

The Committee to which was referred the address of the Department Commander, 
submits the following report: . ' 

We commend the address for Its concise and complete account of the work during 
the year. Commander Wilt has endeared himself to all of the comrades of the De- 
partment with whom he has come in touch as he made his round of official visits 
to preach the gospel of "good cheer" and he has entered so completely Into the spirit 
of the work as • to leave a most salutary influence for the good and perpetuity of 
the order. It Is a most honorable record that he has spent over one-third of the 
working days of the year In this good work, and we believe it is through this in- 
strumentality that the numerical strength of the department has been kept to near 
its normal condition, notwithstanding the fatalities that are operating to reduce our 
ranks. While we mention this fact, your committee Is of the opinion, that we are 
taxing the strength of our Department Commander beyond the bounds of reason, 
and we would suggest that these visitations should be divided up more equitably be- 
tween him and the Senior and Junior Vice Department Commanders, in the future. 

We commend the Commander for cultivating a closer relation with all of the 
Auxiliary organizations, and the incentive he has given to the duty of teaching 
patriotism in the public schools. 

We call especial attention to his remarks as to the sacredness of Memorial Day, 
and his touching tribute to the Comrades who have fallen during the year. 
In recognition of the good work of Commander Wilt, we offer the following: 
Resolved, That the incoming Commander appoint a committee to prepare a suitable 
^ testimonial to present to Department Commander, J. Andrew Wilt, in appreciation 
of his valuable services. 

Fraternally submitted, 

CHARLES T. HULL, 
CHAS. W. GERWIG, 
J. HUNTER WILLS, 
S. M. CALLENDER, 
JOHN COOPER. 

On motion duly seconded, the report was received, adopted and or-

the committee appointed to act upon the reports of the Senior and Junior 
Vice Department Commanders. 

Altoona, June 7, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam. Assistant Adjutant General: 

The Committee, to which was referred the reports of the Senior and Junior Vice 
Department Commanders, reports as follows: 

We c(Hnmend the reports as showing* grood intelligent work, and a conscientious de- 
sire to promote the Interests of the order. They have been efficient helpers to the 
Department Commander In securing the admirable results of the past year, and they 
deserve the grateful recognition and thanks of the comrades of the Department.

254 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENt, DEPT. OP PENNA.. 

On motion duly seconded, the report was received, adopted and or- 
dered filed, and the committee dischare^ed. 

The Department Commander: Comrades, I have the pleasure of pre- 
senting to you, your Senior Vice Department Commander elect. Major 
Merrick. 

Comrade Merrick: Department Commander and Comrades, I feel that 
it is taking? a little advantage of me to call upon me a,t this time. I do 
not know what the Commander wanted to present me to you for. I 
suppose you understood what you were doing when you elected your 
officers. 

I am happy to have reached this meeting, which I did within the last 
half hour, and gentlemen, just a single sentiment now. I never look 
over a body of men like this, without feeling as I do when I meet a 
woman; I want to lift my hat to you, and you see it is already off, and 
what should be under it is nearly ofT. 

I think we may congrratulate ourselves that we were born in the time 
that we were, in the early part of the nineteenth century. I congratu- 
late myself that I live in the time when this country was rescued by the 
heroism of its citizens, and my Comrades, I want to say that I appre- 
ciate the honor you have done me, and I consider it as high an honor as 
can come from any body of men I know of in the civilized world. 

Your country is the record of your valor; your valor was prompted by 
your patriotism, and your patriotism not only saved your country, but 
exalted it. (Applause.) 

Past Department Commander Morrison: Commander, before you put 
a motion to adjourn, I think it would be well to have it understood that 
the election of officers shall be fixed as the order of business for 10 o'clock 
to-morrow morning. 

It was moved and seconded that the Encampment adjourn until it 
o'clock to-morrow morning, which was agreed to, and the Encampment 
adjourned accordingly. 

Opera House, Altoona, Pa., Thursday, 9 A. M., 

June 7, 1906. 
The Encampment was called to order by the Department Commander 
at the designated hour. 

The Encampment was opened In due form by the Department Com- 
mander as prescribed by the ritual. 
The Department Chaplain offered prayer in the following words: 

_ Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for Thy_lovIngr kindness^ in 
watching: over us through the darkness of another night, and permitting us to sel 
the^ light of _thisnew_day. With it come new responsibilities. We pray that _Thou 
'wouldst prepare us for the work there is for us to do. 

Grant, Almighty God, our Father, that Thy choicest blessings may rest upon us 
as we have come to the closing hours of this Encampment, We thank Thee for the 
harmony and for the good fellowship that has prevailed during all our sessions, and 
now as we shall separate, never again all to meet on earth do Thou grant, O Lord, 
whatever the future may have in store for us, that we may so walk before Thee, that 
we may honor and glonify Thee, that when our life on earth is ended, we may all 
meet around the throne.

Bless us, we pray Thee, and bless the families of the Comrades wherever they 
may be. Watch over us all, and guide us by Thy unerring spirit and then save us 
through Christ. Amen. . • 

Past Department Commander McCauley: Commander, I have been 

requefited to withdraw the name of Comrade W. H. Davis of Post 54, 

Coatesville, as a candidate for the Council of Admlnlstcation; that leaves 

only five to be elected, or to be voted for. 

The Department Commander: You have heard the withdrawal of Com- 
rade DavlB announced as candidate for Council of Administration. 
What is the pleasure of the Encampment? 

It was moved and seconded that the Council of Administration be 
elected by acclamation which was agreed to, and the election proceeded 
accordingly, and after the vote was taken, the Department Commander 
declared the following Comrades elected as members of the Council of 
Administration of. this Department for the ensuing year: 

Jonas H. Dettre, Post No. 6. 

H. T. Stan wood. Post No. 334. 

Theo. P. Turner, Post No. 31. 

John Dougherty, Post No. 8. 

Lemon Buch, Post No. 16. 

The Department Commander: What is the further pleasure of the En- 
campment? Are there any other committees ready to report? 

The Assistant Adjutant General presented and read the report of the 

committee appointed to act upon the report o-f the Department Patriotic 

Instructor. 

Altoona, June 7, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Your Committee on the Beport of the Patriotic Instructor most respectfully submits 
the fcllowing as its report: 

That after careful consideration of the Report of the Department Patriotic Instructor, 
Charles O. Smith, it is apparent that in the short time of his service, he has been 
instrumental In arousing patriotic sentiment not only among the Posts of our or- 
ganization and our Public Schools, but also among kindred patriotic and fraternal 
organizations, and, to a large extent, among our people generally. 

We appreciate the fact that this work, in the way of printed addresses, circulars, 
and newspaper articles, has been done at expense of time and money on his part, 
and believing that this important and valuable work should be done at the expense 
of our organization, we therefore heartily endorse the recommendation contained In 
his report— that proper action be taken by this Encampment to provide for the neces- 
sary printing and postage of literature required by the Patriotic Instructor, with- 
out expense to himself. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WM. H. FELIX, 
ROBERT D. McKEE, 
WM. C. BESSELIBVRE, 
Committee. 

The Department Commander: Comrades, what is the pleasure of the 
Encampment in regard to this report? 

It was moved that the report take the same course as previous re- 
ports. 

The Department Commander: There being some . recommendations in

this report, It might be a question whether or not this Encampment 
ivouid authorize and instruct as recommended in the report 

A motion was made to amend the previous motion by adding to same 
that the report be received, that its recommendations be approved and 
adopted, which amendment was accepted by the Comrade who made the 
original motion. 

The amended motion being duly seconded, and the question put, it 
was agreed to, and the Committee was discharged. 

The Department Commander: Are there any other committees ready 
to report? 

The Assistant Adjutant General read the report of the committee to 
which was referred the report of the Department Chaplain, on motion 
the same was approved and the committee discharged. 

Altoona, June 6, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, AsBistant Adjutant General: 

Sir and Comrade: Your Committee on Report of the Department Chaplain, re- 
spectfully submits the following: 

"We have given our careful consideration to the duties assigned to us, and in a 
spirit of fraternity, commend our esteemed comrade, the Rev. John W. Sayers, for 
his faithful Christian labors in his high and holy office as Chaplain of this Depart- 
ment. We beg leave to say, that his able and very Interesting report speaks for it- 
self, and needs no commendation on our part. 

Fraternally yours, 

MAHLON SHAABER, 
CHARLES D. HARRIS, 
L. L. BABCOCK, 
■ Committee. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander and Comrades, in spite 
of precautions on the part of the Adjutant General there are some names 
mis-spelled in the printing of the representatives names to the 40th 
National Encampment. Of course I understand that mistakes of that 
sort are liable to occur in printing, even with proper care, but they will 
be corrected when published in General Orders. 

I have been approached by three Comrades this morning complaining 
that their names are not on the ticket. I want to say that every name 
that was placed in the box was put on that ticket, and we have pre- 
served every scrap of paper that was placed in the box. You will recall 
the fact that I yesterday stated that they should place their names, 
Post number and location on the card or slip of paper. 

I want to call your attention to some things that I have observed, 
and I think you will realize some of the difficulties under which the Ad- 
jutant General labors; we simply have to use horse sense in solving 
the problems presented. 

Here is a Comrade of Post 427 who nominates Edwin Barry, for dele- 
gate. Now why should he mention his own name In connection with it? 
I can't understand why that should be done and that is where errors 
creep in in sorting out the cards, because there are names on both 
sides of the cards. 

Comrade George W. Boyer of Post 216 votes for blank, but I presume 
he meant the name on the other side of the card, and here is one slip

so small that what is on it could not be determined. It seems to be 
Oliver somebody, of Post 8. There are three names that are not on the 
ticket, and it is not the fault of the Assistant Adjutant General. 

In regard to those other than I have mentioned that are not on 
the ticket, I want to sfty that their names have not been placed in the 
box. 

Comrade Johnson, Post 237: Department Commaader, I would like 
to state that I placed the name of Edwin Barry into that box myself. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: I know, an4 the name is on the list. 

Comrade Parks, Post 217: Department Commander, I want to call the 
attention to the Encampment to a resolution. The resolution was this, 
asking the Legislature to appropriate money for badges for every soldier 
who served in Pennsylvania' regiments. Last year I tried to ascertain 
what had become of that resolution after it had been passed by the En- 
campment. • 

Past Department Commander Sample, I believe, was on the resolu- 
tion committee at that time, and it was approved by all of that com- 
mittee. 

This yean I 'have tried to ascertain what had become of that resolution, 
and I found one of the Council of Administration and inquired about it, 
and he said they knew nothing of it. Just a moment ago I spoke to 
Comrade McCauley who is chairman of the Resolutions Committee, tell- 
ing him that it was my place to bring it before this Elncampment. 

That resolution was brought here by Lafayette Post and presented to 
this Encampment, and has never been acted upon. 

There is no reason why this grand old Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 
should not present to every soldier who served in a Pennsylvania regi- 
ment, a medal. We have worked it up among our representatives in 
the eastern part of the State, and they are ready to use their influence 
for its passage. Now I would like to ask this Encampment what has 
become of this resolution? The Council of Administration this year 
say they know nothing of it, and last year I was instructed that it had 
been handed over to the Council of Administration for their action. 

The Department Commander: Do I understand that you claim this reso- 
lution was adopted last year? 

Comrade Parks: It was adopted by the Department Encampment four 
or five years ago at Gettysburg. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander, I recollect very dis- 
tinctly that there was such a resolution and that it was reported back 
from the committee four or five years ago, but I wont undertake to say 
what has been done with it; I had nothing to do with the ofllce of Assist- 
ant Adjutant General at that time, but whoever was then the Assistant 
Adjutant General should have forwarded that resolution to the Legisla-

258 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

It seems to me that if Comrade Parks wants to get action on the mat- 
ter, he had better re-introduce that resolution, and have this Encamp- 
ment act upon it. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: Commander, I do not think that 
is a good way to do it; most of the New England states and also the State 
of New Jersey and perhaps some of the western states have a law like 
that; that is, the ^tate presents to every man who enlisted and is still 
living and to the family of those who are dead, a medal, a bronze medal, 
or a certificate showing his enlistment in the service of the United States 
in that particular State, 'and I think that Pennsylvania should do the 
same thing. It costs some money, because the number from Pennsyl- 
vania was large, but it would be a matter of which our descendants 
would feel very proud, and if you will permit me. Commander and Com- 
rades, I will make a motion, and I hope that this Encampment will 
pass a resolution directing the incoming administration to send a request 
like this to the Legislature next year. 

If we wait until the Encampment meets next year, it will take three 
years longer, and it should be done now in order to get it before the 
next Legislature, therefore I move that the incoming officers be in- 
structed to send a copy of this resolution to the Legislature requesting 
them to enact that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania distribute a 
medal of this kind to those who enlisted from this State. 

The motion was seconded by several Comrades. 

Past Department Commander Cumings: Commander, I would like 
to suggest that the motion be slightly amended, instructing the Com- 
mander that the legislation desired be properly framed — that a bill cov- 
ering what you want, be properly drawn before it is presented to the 
Legislature. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: I will accept the amendment, and 
Senator Cumings will be one of the men to look after it unless he goes 
to Congress next year. 

Comrade Cordes, Post 212: Commander, I would like to make an 
amendment to that motion to include the men who enlisted at the be- 
ginning of the war or during the war out of the State of Pennsylvania 
in the regular army. When the war broke out, unluckily I happened to 
get into the regular army. I was a pretty fair sort of a citizen before the 
war, and have tried to make a respectable record for myself and for 
the State of Pennsylvania, but a thing occurred when the monument 
was dedicated at Chicamauga— when that was before the Legislature, 
some representative in the Legislature got up and referring to those who 
served in the regular army, he said^hey were not Pennsylvanians. 

Now Comrades, I will leave it to anybody who knows me, and there 
are a good many here among the number, including Comrade Suydam, 
Comrade Stewart and Comrade Sayers, and they will say that I have

attended every encampment in the Department of Pennsylvania, and 
I consider myself just as good a Pennsylvanian as anybody else, and I 
think an amendment should be made in that resolution to include the 
men of my standing because if everybody else wears a medal, I would 
like to wear one, too. 

Comrade Fulton, Post 84: Commander, I rise to second the amendment 
that the regular soldiers be included in this resolution, and I would also 
make a suggestion that the L*egislative Committee— I understand that 
we have a Legislative Committee — be placed in charge of this resolution. 
I think that if Comrade Wagner would include that in his motion, it 
would be proper. 

The Department Commander: We have no such standing committee. 

Comrade Fulton, Post 84: Then. Commander, I move that we appoint 
a legislative ^committee — appoint a committee of say five. * 

(Several Comrades, No!) 

Comrade Fulton, Post 84: Why, we have a national committee on 
legislation In Congress and why not have one for the Department of 
Pennsylvania to help the Legislature through In a case like this? 

I want to second the amendment of Comrade Cordes of MUlersburg. 

The Department Chaplain: Commander, General Wagner's motion 
includes that; it takes in all the soldiers from Pennsylvania, whether .in 
the army or In the navy, and don't lumber it up; don't create another 
committee. You have got a Department Commander who Is perfectly 
competent to look after this matter, and you can place the responsibility 
upon him and he will attend to it. I find, after all, that with your 
large committees, there are always one or two men that have to do the 
work. 

Comrade Fulton, Post 84: Cojnmander, I think It Is time that the regu- 
lars should be recognized. If you go to Gettysburg you will not see a 
monument nor anything in recognition of their services there, and I think 
It Is time that something should be done to show that their seiivces are 
appreciated. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander, I am rather surprised 
at Comrade Fulton In the remark that he made, that the regulars are 
not recognized at Gettysburg. 

I want to say that through the efforts of the "Grand Army Associa- 
tion" of Philadelphia, a bill was Introduced Into Congress and an ap- 
propriation made, I think of $60,000 to erect monuments to all the regi- 
ments and batteries of the regular army that served at Gettysburg. 

The Department Commander: Comrades, I am very glad to have this

matter of the regulars emphasized here. There is a Comrade of my 
Post who served a number of years in the navy and yet, just as has been 
said, when he came to go down to Andersonville, because he was in the 
navy, he found he was not entitled to the benefits of the act which pro- 
vided transportation for the men who served in the army from Penn- 
sylvania, and he felt hurt over it, so I think we ought to include the 
regulars in this resolution. 

Comrade Kirk, Post 262: I want to say that I have a letter in my 
possession from the association saying tlftit the dedication of the monu- 
ments will occur this summer. 

The Department Commander: Are you ready for the question that the 
incoming Department Commander take up this matter and present it 
to the Legislature requesting that there be medals presented by the 
State to all the men who enlisted from Pennsylvania, whether they 
served in the army or in the navy, or in the regular or volunteer ser- 
vice. (Cries of Question!) 

The question being put and the motion amended so as to include those 
mentioned by the Department Commander in his statement of the 
question, was agreed to unanimously. 

It was announced that the Committee on resolutions was ready to re- 
port. 

Past Department Commander L. G. McCauley presented and read the 
report of the Committee on Resolutions as follows: 

Your committee begs leave to report that it held a meeting at 8 P. 
M. in Room No. 100 in the Logan House and considered the resolutions 
presented to it. 

Resolution No. 1 (Presented by Post No. 214). To change Memorial 
Day from the 30th of May to the last Sunday in May or to the first Sun- 
day of June was considered and the committee has concluded that it 
does not seem wise to make the proposed change at this time. 

I move the adoption of the recommendation. 

The motion being seconded it was agreed to, and the report of the 
committee was adopted. 

RESOLUTION NO. 2. 

Presented by Comrade W. T. Zlegler, Post No. 9. 

Relative to the Prisoners of War Pension Bill. 
Resolved, That Senate bill No. 1716, and House bill No. blGO in the 58th Congress, 
and now pending before the present Congress, granting pensions to soldiers and 
sailors who were confined In so-called Confederate prisons, receive our hearty en- 
dorsement and approval, and that the matter be reported to the Representatives 
to the Fortieth National Encampment, with ar request for like favorable action. 

I move the adoption of this resolution. The motion was seconded. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander, I wish to amend 
that the Comrade presenting that resolution should furnish copies of

("Senate bill No. 1716, and House bill No. 5760") to the Assistant Adjutant 
General to be presented to the representatives from Pennsylvania at 
the fortieth National Encampment. 

The amendment was accepted. 

The Department Commander: With that amendment accepted, are 
you ready for the question? (Cries of Question!) 

The amendment having been duly seconded and the question put upon 
the motion as amended, it was agreed to. 

The Department Commander: In our rules and regulations the Grand 
Army of the Republic has established the 3(>th day of May as Memorial 
Day. Now if we wish to change that, Comrades, we in Pennsylvania 
could not do it. If we want to make a recommendation, we can of 
course do that, but as it stands to-day we cannot change it and the 
only thing we can do is to refer it to the National Encampment. 

Comrade McCarthy, Post 21: Commander, isn't the 30th day of May 
a national holiday by act of Congress? 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: There are no national holidays 
by Act of Congress. All the states have their laws fixing holidays; the 
southern states have Decoration day; the northern states have Memorial 
Day; the acts of the state legislatures in the north provide that when 
Memorial Day falls on Sunday, Monday shall be observed, therefore 
if the National Encampment makes the change to Sunday, it would be 
necessary to have 'action in every Legislature in the United States. 

Some of us, Commander— and pardon this elaboration on this point- 
it does not appear to be in order — some of us remember that there was 
a time when Memorial Day came on Sunday. It will again in the year 
1909 — the 30th of May came on Sunday. The first Memorial Day was on 
Saturday, in 1868 and the next year it came on Sunday, and the condi- 
tion of afCairs in connection with it was so demoralizing that it was 
changed, as I have stated. 

If the National Encampment should see fit to make the change, every 
Legislature in the United States would be required to do the same thing. 

Comrade Grim, Post 21: Commander, I do not want to difCer with Com- 
rade Wagner, but my business is such that I have been brought into 
connection with all the rules of the Government and its departments, and 
I am compelled by Act of Congress not to allow any work to be done 
on national holidays, one of which is the 30th of May; so I fear that our 
Past Commander-in-Chief has got that wrong. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: Commander, the Act of Congress 
which governs the subject, is a clause for the protection of labor unions, 
and says that no work under those contracts shall be done on these holi- 
days. I cannot give you the exact phraseology but providing in sub- 
stance that no work shall be done on any days that are public holidays.

ceedings of our work, to the memory and honor of Past Department

Walton.

Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 

Philadelphia, December 21. 1905. 
General Orders, 
No. 9. 

The Department Commander announces with sadness and a 
feeling of personal bereavement the death of Past Department 
.Commander Thomas G. Sample, which occurred at his home in 
Allegheny, Pennsylvania, December 3, 1905. 

In his death the Grand Army of the Republic has lost a com- 
rade, whose wisdom for many years has helped to shape Its 
affairs and guard its interests; the Department of Pennsylvania 
a leader who enjoyed the respect and confidence of his Comrades; 
the Post to which he belonged and in which he held ofilclal sta- 
tion, a member upon whom his Comrades leaned with that trust- 
fullness reposed only in the faithful and deserving. 

We may not intrude our grief in that home now bereft of hus- 
band and father. Theirs is the greater bereavement, and to them 
we tender the loving sympathy of a Soldier and Comrades heart. 

Thomas G. Sample served his country faithfully and well as a 
soldier; performed concientlously and honorably the duties of a 
citizen; exemplified fully and grandly the fraternal Comradeship 
of the war days, and jeweled his life with an intense and lofty 
patriotism, so that It may be well said of him 

"His life was gentle, and the elements 
feo mixed in him, that Nature might stand up 
and say to the world, This was a man." 



MExMORIAL. 

From the report of the Department Chaplain, and read at the 
Fortieth Department Encampment. 

"Past Department Commander Thomas G. Sample, few In our 
great Comradeship so well and so favorably known, forceful, elo- 
quent, untiring, he was a tower of strength, and the Department 
of Pennsylvania leaned trustingly and lovingly upon him for ad- 
vice and direction, with a confidence which his manliness and 
Intregrlty justified. During the many years that he was a mem- 
ber of the Commission In charge of the Soldiers' Orphan Schools, 
he gave to that sacred trust his best thought and efCort, saw that 
the bounty of the State was properly applied, and the homeless 
ones helped and encouraged to lives of usefulness and honor. 
When the Master came he found him ready, found him patient 
In suffering, brave In trial, saddened In leaving his famfly and 
Comrades, but rejoicing in the new life he had found by trusting 
Christ as his personal Saviour.** 

"How beautiful it is for a man to die 
Upon the walls of Zion: to be called 
Like a watchwom and weary Sentinel, 
To put his armor off and rest in Heaven."

Department Chaplain Sayers: Commander, let me say with regard to 
this, that what I read in regard to Past Department Commander Walton 
is not in my report, but it will be in the report that will be completed 
and published. You understand that we had made our report, and mat- 
ters had gone into the printers' hands, after which Comrade Walton 
died, and so we had to make this report as it is, but it will be put In 
proper shape when you receive the regular printed report of the pro- 
ceedings. 

The question being on the motion, it was agreed to. 

The Assistant Adjutant General presented and read the report of the 
Committee appointed to act upon the report of the Department Inspector. 

Altoona, June 6, 1906. 
Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

The committee on the report of the Department Inspector, offers the following:: 
In discharging the duty assigned us, we have carefully read the report of the De- 
partment Inspector, which shows such faithful discharge of duty as to merit the 
highest commendation of the Department Encampment. 

Fraternally submitted, 

N. P. KINSLEY, 
JAMBS BRADY, 
PBl'BR DBUSCHEIN,

Committee. 

On motion duly seconded, the above report was received, adopted and 
ordered filed and the Committee discharged. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander, I wish to say for the 
information of Comrades, that the question may be asked why some of 
the papers which were presented here, were not read. 

I have some papers from the Division Commander of the Sons of 
Veterans relative to some trouble in Philadelphia with the camp con- 
nected with Post 51 of Philadelphia and it was probably thought that it 
would be brought to the attention ^f the Department Encampment by 
that Post, but inasmuch as it has not done so, I think this matter 
had better not be read and become a matter of record. It is one of those 
ugly things that I think ought not to go Into our proceedings. I simply 
make the statement so that it may be understood why it was not pre- 
sented. 

The Department Commander: Are there any other committees to re- 
port? 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157: Commander, I want to make a motion. 
I wish to move that when the Encampment adjourns, that the tellers 
appointed to receive the votes for representatives to the National En- 
campment take their place out in the hallway and as the Comrades pass 
out, let them deposit their ballots, and then we can leave quietly and 
nicely; the object Is to avoid confusion. 

Motion seconded.

244 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENI", DEPT. OF PE^^NA., 

Comrade Cole, Post 68: Commander, some of the Comrades will go out 
before that time, and unless the box is placed there soon, they may not 
get a chance to vote. 

Comrade Bengough, Post 157: I will ask the Etepartment Commander to 
direct that the members of the committee on counting the votes for 
representatives be directed to take their places now. 

The Department Commander: If there are no objections that will be 
done. If the committee or a part of it will have a box or boxes there, 
so that any Comrades who have to leave the hall can have an oppor- 
tunity to vote, it will meet the request of the Comrade. 

The Department Chaplain: Had we not better include in that motion 
that the 49 who have the highest votes shall be the regular representa- 
tives? 

The Assistant Adjutant General: That is always done. 

The Department Commander: The Assistant Adjutant General will 
read the returning board for the election of delegates to the National 
Encampment. 

The same was read by the Assistant Adjutant General as directed. 

Comrade Barnhill, Post 73: Commander, I call a/ttention to the fact 
that several Comrades have no blanks on which to make out their 
votes. 

The Department Commander: There are plenty of them and you can 
secure all you want. 

The time has arrived which you fixed yesterday for the installation 
of your officers. The custom is to have the Senior Department Com- 
mander install the officers, and I have asked Comrade Wagner to per- 
form that duty, and I will now turn the gavel over to him. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: It has been my custom to do it in 
the short way, and I will do so now unless you desire me to adopt the 
regular forms of the ritual. Shall we do it in the short way? 

Several Comrades: Yes. 

The installing officers: The Assistant Adjutant General will announce 
the names of the officers elect. 

Assistant Adjutant General then announced the following: 
Department Commander, M. A. Gherst, Post No. 42. 
Senior Vice Department Commander, George W. Merriek, Post No. 315. 
Junior Vice Department Commander, Joseph E. Clark, Post No. 518

Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 
Philadelphia, May 22, 1906. 

General Orders, 
No. 15. 

The Department Commander announces with sadness, and a 
sense of personal bereavement, the death of Past Department 
Commander Edwin Walton, which occurred at his home in Phila- 
delphia on Friday, May 18, 1906. 

He was one of the host of brave boys, who, before they had 
reached the years of manhood, rallied to the defence of the 
Nation, and stood side by side with those of maturer years be- 
neath the Nation's Flag in the pitiless tempest of battle. He was 
a commissioned officer in the Volunteer Army of the Union before 
he had attained his majority. 

As a citizen he lived a life of great usefulness, and stood for 
the things which ennoble manhood, and which uplift and dignify 
American citizenship. 

As a Comrade none were more faithful, and, in the closer cir- 
cle of those who knew him best, none more beloved. 

The Post Room of the Grand Army of the Republic, next to his 
home, was a holy place, where he found loving companionship with 
those who were bound to him with the ties of the great fraternity, 
within whose membership have been and are gathered men who 
with their Comrades in stress, and trial, and sacrifice, wrought 
out the great results that have uplifted humanity. 



MEMORIAL. 

From the report of the Department Chaplain, as read at the 
Fortieth Department Encampment. 

*'Just on the eve of this Encampment, the shaft of death found 
a shining mark. Another leader answered the call of the Master 
and joined the mighty hosts of immortals. Past Department Com- 
mander Edwin Walton was a commissioned officer of the Volunteer 
Army of the Republic before he had attained his majority, he 
was a representative of that patriotism and devotion that makes 
a Nation strong in trial and invinciable in war. 

Among his Comrades he was a tower of strength, always labor- 
ing to advance the interests of our order, and by clean citizen- 
ship and high ideas adding to its dignity, its power, and its worth. 
For more than a quarter of a century he was an untiring, earnest, 
faithful, worker in the Grand Army of the Republic, and his life 
was an inspiration to those about him. 

Let us emulate his example and cherish his memory."

266 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. DEPT. OP PENNA.. 

The Installing Officer: Comrades, you will assume your proper sta- 
tions, all except the Department Commander. 

Comrade Gherst, it is a source of satisfaction to those of us whose 
interest in the Grand Army of the Republic is as intense as ours, to know 
that you have been elected to command the Department of Pennsylvania 
during* the coming year. 

From your long association with us, we feel that you are desirous and 
ready to enter upon the offlce to which you have been unanimously 
called, with zeal and with faithfulness. We are sure that all the affairs 
of this Department of the Grand Army of the Republic at your hands 
will be looked after and attended to with fidelity and with earnestness, 
and I am certain that we can congratulate ourselves, and I desire to 
congratulate you upon the work which we are now about to complete. 

Are you prepared to take upon yourself the obligation of your office? 

Department Commander Elect M. A. Gherst: I am. 

The obligation of our order was then administered to Department Com- 
mander Elect Gherst in due form. 

The Installing Officer: Comrade Gherst, it is my privilege and my 
pleasure to fasten upon your breast the official badge of Department 
Commander which I am sure you will wear with the satisfaction of your 
Comrades, and we trust with satisfaction to yourself. 

Again, permit me to congratulate you upon your election and Installa- 
tion to suggest that the Comrades now hear from you your Inaugural 
address. (Applause.) 

Department Commander Gherst: Comrade Wagner and Comrades of 
the Department of Pennsylvania, Comrade Gobln yesterday was kind 
enough to present my name for your suffrages and referred to my youth. 
Do not charge that against me; I will do the best I can, and we are all 
just as old or as young as we feel, and I was particularly Impressed with 
that fact yesterday when on this stage in his quiet, unassuming way, a 
Past Department Commander celebrated his 80th birthday, and if he 
hadn't left the platform I would have liked to have him rise so that 
you might see how young we can be if we feel young. I refer to that 
brilliant soldier, modest as he was brilliant, brave as he was unassum- 
ing, a Comrade in every sense of the word, General John P. Taylor, of 
the First Cavalry. (Applause.) 

In assuming this gavel, I feel that you have honored me far beyond 
my deserts, but I feel as keenly as any Comrade can feel, that with the 
honor come responsibilities that I hesitate in assuming, but I trust that 
I may be able, at least to some extent, to measure up to the duties and 
merit the confidence you have placed in me. 

I am fully aware— probably not fully aware— of the duties and of the 
responsibilities, and of the labor that pertain to the office of Department

Commander. I feel that with this long list of illustrious predecessors, it 
is not an easy task for me to carry on the affairs of this Department, 
with the success that has characterized my immediate predecessor, and 
his predecessors,, but no man is strong enougrh, no man is capable of 
discharging the duties of this responsible position, unless he has the 
unqualified, loyal, earnest, devoted support of every Comrade in the 
Department of Pennsylvania. (Applause.) Can I ask you for that sup- 
port? If I can, and I believe I shall have it, I will do the very best I 
can. I will not promise you a brilliant administration, I promise you, 
however an administration that will not reflect against this Department, 
an administration so far as it lies within my power, of dignity, of 
economy, and along the lines that will best serve the interest of the 
Department of Pennsylvania collectively, and the interest of every in- 
dividual Comrade in this Department. (Applause.) And as you go 
from here, carry back to the Comrades who were not fortunate enough 
to be with us, this message, that the earnest devotion of your Com- 
mander shall be at their service, so far as it lies within his power, and 
I would like to meet and take by the hand every Comrade in this De- 
partment, but that will be a physical impossibility, but let this be the 
thought as we separate to-day, as we are passing the western slope of 
mortality, and in the division of our lives, may our actions towards one 
another be such that, as our shadows grow longer our friendship one 
for another may ever grow stronger. (Applause.) Some one has said, 
if you have a flower, give it to me now, rather than lay a boquet of 
roses on my casket when I am gone. Let that be the spirit, my Com- 
rades, amongst us, that we help our Comrades over the rough and 
rugged path of life. Let us give them a word of cheer, let us give them 
encouragement, let us give them all they need, and don't let us wait 
until they are dead and gone. 

I thank you for the honor conferred upon me, and I trust that I may 
be able, one year hence, to bring back the banner of this Department, 
unstained and receive your commendation, "Well done." (Applause.) 

The Installing Oflacer: Oflacer of the Day, please present to me the 
newly installed Senior Vice Department Commander. 

The Oflacer of the Day presented to the Installing Ofllcer Comrade Mer- 
rick, the newly •4nstalled Senior Vice Department Commander as di- 
rected. 

The Installing Oflftcer: Comrade Merrick, it is also my duty and my 
pleasure to place upon your breast the badge of ofllce to which you have 
just been installed. I am sure I voice the sentiment of the Encampment 
and of all your Comrades when I say that we are glad that you are 
here. Senior Vice Commander, and I congratulate you that you are to 
fill this oflace for the current year, and feel sure that you will fill it with 
distinction and honor, and to the satisfaction of all your Comrades. It 
will be in order for you now to deliver your inaugural address.

268 40TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

The Senior Vice Department Commander, Comrade Merrick: It was 
an unexpected honor, and I supposed that the only inaugural address 
required upon this occasion was that of the Commander, but lie has 
spoken of the epitaph that he wants upon your tombstome. L#et me give 
you a suggestion. I suggest this for all of you, or the intrepretation 
of tt. 

I saw a little anecdote the other day of a father with his young son, 
passing through a cemetery where they saw that on most of the stones 
were the letters R. I. P. (Rest in peace.) 

The boy wanted to know what that meant. The father said, **What 
do you think it means, my son?" After thinking a minute the boy said 
he thought it might mean "return if possible." I suggest that as my 
epitaph, when the time comes. I hope the time will be postponed a long 
time. 

I remember another anecdote that is really authentic told in Phila- 
delphia a few years ago to the New England dinner in that city The 
gentleman who told it said the host where he was staying had a little 
girl who had Just reached that stage where she could ask questions that 
a wise man could not answer and here is a sample of her questions. 
"Papa, where were you born?" "I was born in Boston." "Where was 
Mamma born?" "She was born in San Francisco." "Where was I 
born?" "You were born here in Philadelphia." "Well," she said, "isn't 
it funny how we three people happened to meet." (Laughter and ap- 
plause.) I have to say that it is not only funny, but entirely agreeable 
that we happened to meet here now. 

My inaugural address is very brief; the first duty that I learned as a 
soldier yvras to obey orders, and I promised to obey the orders of the 
Commander here, and I promise also to do my duty with fidelity. 

The Installing Ofllcer: Interrupting the final presentation of the offi- 
cial badge, this epitaph to which the Senior Vice Commander has re- 
ferred, has reminded me of an epitaph on a tombstone, which was sent 
to me by a friend of mine on last New Year's Day, accompanied by a 
photograph taken on the spot. This photograph w^as sent to me with a 
Happy New Year greeting, to which was added "May you beat this 
record." It is from a tombstone in the upper burying ground in Ger- 
mantown, where all the important events of the nation transpire. It 
reads as follows: — the record reads "In Memory of Adam Stabler, who 
departed this life December 22nd, 1777, aged 969 years." Now you will 
bear in mind that he wished me to beat this record. Somebody said it 
couldn't be so, but that is a photograph of the tombstone now in place 
there. 

Officer of the Day, please present the newly installed Junior Vice De- 
partment Commander. 

The Officer of the Day presented the newly installed Junior Vice De- 
partment Commander, Comrade Clark as directed.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 269 

The Installing Officer: Comrade Clark, I also take pleasure in pinnin© 
upon your breast the official badge of your office. We have heard from 
the center of the State— Berks county used to be L#ebanon— and also 
from the northern tier of counties, and it gives us great satisfaction to 
know that the southwestern part of the State has not been forgotten, 
and that you have been selected also unanimously to fill the office of 
Junior Vice Department Commander, and it is in order for you now to 
address the Comrades. 

Junior Vice Department Commander Clark: Comrades, I will not at- 
tempt to do any more than just to say that I wish to express my thanks 
to the members of this Encampment for their kindness in electing me 
to this office. 

I will pledge you, that so far as I am able, I will assist the Commander 
in all that will be necessary to be done in the work of the Department of 
Pennsylvania, and I hope that we may be able to give at the end of the 
year a good report of what we have done. 

The Installing Officer: (Addressing Department Commander Gherst) 
I present to you the gavel, the emblem of your authority. I will assure 
you there is little use for it in this Department. 

I am sure that with you in the Chair, that you will dispatch business 
and that all the interests of the Department of Pennsylvania will be 
properly cared for during the term of your office. 

Past Department Commander Morrison, Post No. 1, Philadelphia: Com- 
mander, In view of the magnificent manner in which Past Commander-in 
-Chief Wagner has conducted the ceremonies of installation, I move that 
the thanks of the Encampment be tendered Comrade Wagner. 

The motion having been duly seconded and the question put, it was 
unanimously agreed to. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: Commander, I want to say that 
forty years ago, I was installed as Department Commander of Penn- 
sylvania. It was but a little child, a small child at that time. Every- 
body prophesied or almost everybody, that it would die in the homing, 
but it has lived and grown and prospered and marvellous things have 
been accomplished for the Commonwealth and for the nation by reason 
of the existence of the Grand Army of the Republic in Pennsylvania. 

The Department Commander: Is there any further business to come 
before this Encampment? 

Patriotic Instructor, Comrade Smith, Post 259: Commander, I desire 
to return my thanks to you for reappointment as Patriotic Instructor. 
I want to say that on the 14th day of June is the 129th anniversary of the 
birth of the American flag, known as Flag Day, and I trust that 
Comrades will see that their wives, their daughters ancj their ^ons, their

uncles and their aunts, will have a flag out on their houses on that oc- 
casion, and that the school children in their families, when they go to 
school, have a small flag pinned on their breasts. (Applause.) 

Comrade Bengough, Post 57: Commander, I move that the Encamp- 
ment do now adjourn. 

Several Comrades seconded the motion.
