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.

II. The Commander-in-Chief has directed that the Annual Reports 
of the Assistant Adjutant General, and the Assistant Quartermaster 
General, shall be in the bands of the Adjutant General not later than 
July 15th. The fact that the Thirty-eighth National Encampment will 
convene on August 17th, compels prompt attention to this order. It is 
expected that Post Commanders will see that at the close of the last 
meeting in June, the respective Reports for the 1st term of 1904, are at 
once made out, signed and forwarded to the Assistant Adjutant Gen- 
eral; by this attention, they can be consolidated, and forwarded to 
National Headquarters on time, and the reputation of this Department 
for promptness be maintained. 

III. Drafts, Checks and money orders should be made payable to 
JOHN L. GRIM, ASSISTANT QUARTERMASTER GENERAL, and 
enclosed with the Reports sent to the Assistant Adjutant General. 

Reports of Post Chaplains should also be promptly forwarded to Rev. 
John W. Sayers, D. D., Department Chaplain, 330 Kerline St., Chester, 
Penna. 

IV. It is the purpose of the Department Commander to attend the 
reunions of Grand Army Associations, and other gatherings, if invita- 
tions to the same are extended in time to make the necessary arrange- 
ments. While he may not be able to accept all invitations, it will give 
him pleasure to attend whenever it is possible for him to so arrange. 

V. Post Commanders will at once recommend for appointment, as 
Aide, a Comrade noted for his work for the welfare of his Post, and who 
will by his zeal assist in keeping this Department, in the front rank of 
the Grand Army of the Republic.

Tne Grand Army oi the Republic, has been and is siaII the most con- 
spicuous fraternal and patriotic organization in the Nation. No history 
of the Republic written in future years will be complete or truthful 
that does not recognize its work and worth. 

^rely the founder of such an organization, the soldier whose pro- 
phetic vision saw the great good to be accomplished by uniting in our 
brotherhood, under our banner, the survivors of the Union Army and 
Navy, is entitled to a lasting and fitting memorial in the Capitol city 
of the Nation. 

The Grand Army is committed to this work. Let it be done in a man- 
ner befitting the history, the achievements and the dignity of our order. 

Pennsylvania foremost in all good works must not be a laggard in this. 
The Department Commander therefore commends the project to the 
careful and liberal consideration of every Post, and of such individual 
Comrades as may be able to spare from their abundance something for 
so good and worthy a cause. 

IX. Reports and per capita tax from quite a number of Posts are 
overdue, for the term ending June 30th, it is of the greatest importance 
that these reports be forwarded at once. Post Commanders and Ad- 
jutants who have not already done so, will attend to this requirement 
immediately. 

X. In Compliance with the action of the Thirty-eighth Annual De- 
partment Encampment, Past Department Commander, W. J. Patterson, 
Past Department Commander, Thos. G. Sample, Past Department Com- 
mander, Levi G. McCauley, Comrades William F. Bimmer, James E. 
McFarlan, J. Henry Holcomb and Joseph E. Clark, are hereby appointed 
a Committee to procure and present to Past Department Commander 
Edwin Walton, a suitable testimonial, in recognition of the service ren- 
dered by him to the Department. 

By command of JOHN McNBVIN, 

Department Commander.

VII. Pennsylvania has long been noted for its discipline, and adher- 
ence to the prescribed uniform of the Department, and it is expected that 
all Comrades parading will appear in **dark pants, dark blue four button, 
blouse, white vest, fatigue cap, black necktie and white gloves," and 
again will this Department be accorded the credit of being the Banner 
Department in soldierly appearance. 

VIII. Officers and Representatives to the Encampment will convene 
in session at Department Headquarters, on Tuesday Evening August 
16th, at 8 P. M., for the transaction of business. 

IX. Our Comrades of the City of Boston have arranged a program 
for Entertainment of an elaborate character, all of which is set forth "in 
Gen. Orders No. 12, from National Headquarters, and there is no doubt 
but that the gathering will be one that will long be remembered by all 
who shall have the pleasure of participating. 

X. Comrades who may be located near National and Department 
Headquarters, should get off their train at "Back Bay Station." It is 
but a few minutes walk to the Vendome, Lrennox, and other Hotels in 
that section. 

XI. Post No. 166, reported suspended in Gen. Orders No. 3, current 
series from these Headquarters, having liquidated their indebtedness, 
said Post is placed in good standing in the Department. 

By command of JOHN McNBVIN, 
Department Commander.

Asst. Adjutant General. 



Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania,

S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets,

General Orders, 
Ni>. 5. 

I. The Department Commander takes this opportunity to express 
his gratification, and to congratulate the Comrades upon the large at- 
tendance, and splendid bearing of the Department, at the Thirty-eighth 
National Encampment, held at Boston, Mass. 

In the grand Parade they were favorably commented upon for their 
Soldierly appearance, discipline maintained, and fine marching. 

II. It is a matter of regret that the supply of tickets for the Grand 
stand, from which to view the parade, and other Entertainments, were 
so limited in number, that Representatives and Comrades could not be 
supplied with all that they desired, but it is pleasant to note the fact that 
the local Boston Committee were not responsible for this condition of 
affairs.

Comrade Atkinson enlisted as a private March 10th, 1862, at the age 
of 19 years, serving nearly three years in Company G, 48th Regiment, 
Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was actively engaged in the following 
battles, viz: Bull Run, August 30th; Chantilly, September 1st; South 
Mountain, September 14th; Antietam, September 17-19th; Fredericks- 
burg, December ll-16th. He was personally complimented by the com- 
manding officer of the regiment for gallantry during the Fredericks- 
burg engagement. 

Served as Post Commander of Robert Wainwright Scott Post, No. 464, 
several terms, and upon the first election after the consolidation of Post 
No. 67 and Post No. 464, was elected Commander of Post No. 67, and 
was recently unanimously re-elected for the year 1903. 

Faithfully he served the Department as Senior Vice Department Com- 
mander, from June, 1903, to June, 1904, he was a familiar figure at many 
of our Encampments, and Comrades will recall his presence with us in 
June last at Gettysburg. By his death we have lost a Comrade who was 
always true to our organization. His memory will l^e an incentive 
to others throughout the Department to emulate his conspicuous Com- 
radeship. 

By command of JOHN McNBVIN, 
Department Commander. 
CHAS. A. SUYDAM, 
Asst. Adjutant General.

20 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 
Philadelphia, September 30, 1904. 
General Orders, 
No. 6. 

I. The Annual Inspection of the Posts of this Department will take 
place between October 15th and December 22d, 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 immedi- 
ately 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. Nicholas, 
S. W. Cor. 5th and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia. 

The inspection will consist of a thorough examination of Minute or 
Record Books, Descriptive Book, Order Book and Quartermaster's Led- 
ger and the files of General Orders from National and Department Head- 
quarters. Reports must not be made in lead pencil. 

The Assistant Quartermaster General has submitted to the Depart- 
ment Inspector a list of Posts from which Adjutants and Quartermaster's 
semi-annual reports and per capita tax for term ending June 30th last 
have not been forwarded to Department Headquarters as required. No 
favorable reports of inspection of such Posts can be made until this 
delinquency has been removed. A blue pencil mark at this paragraph 
means that the Post receiving this Order so marked is delinquent. 

Form of Inspection adopted at the Twenty-sixth National Encamp- 
ment, for the proper reception of Assistant Inspectors, etc., is trans- 
mitted herewith. 

The Assistant Inspector-at-Large in charge of the District will give 
tim e] ^^ n otice to each Post Commander of the date selected for inspection 
witl^^e name and Post of the oflicer detailed. 

All necessary blanks, etc., will be furnished by the Department In- 
spector to Assistant Inspector-at-Large for Distribution to Assistant In- 
spectors. 

Commanders of Posts should use every effort to have a full attendance 
of the Comrades. The great benefit intended to be secured by an inspec- 
tion of a Post, can only be had by making it an event of importance.

the blank provided in the Semi-Annual Reports, giving company, regi- 
ment, vessel or other command, with rank and date of death of a com- 
rade.

S. W. Cor. Fifth and Chestnut Streets, 
Philadelphia, December 1, 1904. 
General Orders, 
No. 8. 

I. Post Officers elected to serve during 1905 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. 

II. The Department Commander is impressed with the beneficial re- 
sults of open Installations and whenever possible, 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. 

III. On the recommendation of Comrade Chas. O. Smith, 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.

40 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

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. 

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. 

IV. Reports of Adjutants and Quartermasters, with per capita tax, 
for the term ending December 31, are due immediately after the last 
meeting held this month. Post Commanders are directed to give per- 
sonal attention to the prompt forwarding of the same, as under the 
Rules and Regulations, Post officers for the ensuing year cannot be in- 
stalled, until such reports have been forwarded to Department Head- 
quarters. 

Checks, drafts and money orders must be drawn to the order of the 
Assistant Quartermaster General, John L. Grim, but enclosed to Assist- 
ant Adjutant General, Chas. A. Suydam. Credentials of Representatives

Attention to this will materially aid the Officers of the Department. 

V. Quartermasters are required to furnish bonds on the form provided 
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 who have not been inspected, cannot 
have their officers installed until this has been performed. 

VI. 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 1905, and mailed without delay. If this matter is given prompt at- 
tention, it will greatly enable the Assistant Adjutant General in getting 
out a new edition or the Department Roster, at an early date. 

VII. The Birthday of Washington, February 22, and that of Lincoln, 
February 12, should be an inspiration to every Post to at once make 
preparation for their proper observance; let us on these days lay aside 
"the pursuits and pleasures of civil life" to contemplate the grandeur 
of their character, and to again realize their wonderful achievements, 
which has made our Country the greatest and best on earth.

order. By direction of the Commander in Chief, they go into effect on

geant in the 110th Penna. Volunteer Infantry, is at these Headquarters,

the broken thread of your life's work which had been torn, asunder by 
your service in the Army and Navy, and started in to help bind the 
wounds of our common country. You took your places in the ranks of 
the Grand Army of the Republic, and faithfully, sympathetically, and 
sincerely on the 30th day of every May, accompanied by a patriotic pub- 
lic you have repaired to the cities of the dead, and there placed your 
emblems of remembrance upon the graves of your Comrades who have 
crossed the dark river, and are resting under the shade of the trees on 
the other side. We are now approaching that period fn our lives when 
again we will perform this loving service. The mounds over which 
wave the flag of our country are multiplying with great rapidity, the 
messenger of death is visiting the home of the Soldier, Sailor and Marine 
of the War for the Suppression of the Rebellion with alarming frequen- 
cy, and soon, ah! too soon, we shall have all answered the last call and 
will stand in the presence of Him who doeth all things well, but in the 
garlanded chambers of memory the veteran of the war will continue to 
live until time shall be no more. Let ub, therefore, with a full knowl- 
edge of the purposes of the day, imbued with that same patriotic spirit 
that has actuated us for the past forty years, approach the discharge of 
its duties with a reverent spirit, and as we scatter the beautiful flowers 
of spring on the graves of our comrades, or cast them upon the waters 
to the memory of the sailor and marine, let it be done with the thought 
that with them it has been 

"Life's race well run. 
Life's work well done, 
Life's victory won, 

Then cometh Rest." 

II. Commanders will arrange to have their respective Posts attend 
divine service on Sunday, May 28th. These memorial services, prepara-

39tli ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT 

UNOFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS 
READING, PA., 

Tuesday, June 6, 1906. 



Phonographic ALLY Rbportbd by Comrade H. h. Burnell. 



Camp Fire at the Academy of Music, Reading, 8 P. M., June 6, 1905. 

Chairman of the Executive Committee, Lemon Buch, opened the Camp 
Fire and when all was in readiness, the word was given, and the band 
swung into the patriotic and stirring medley of "The Echoes of '61." 
It was splendidly rendered and brought back to the veterans the days 
of '61 when they marched and fought for the Union to the strains of the 
stirring war songs. As the band began "The Star Spangled Banner," 
the entire audience arose, and remained standing until the close, 
when the applause was deafening. 

Department Chaplain Rev. John W. Sayers, D. D., made the follow- 
ing prayer: 

"Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we come before Thee with grate- 
ful hearts. We thank Thee for this hour, an hour so full of saxjred 
memories to us, and we pray that Thy blessing may rest upon us, and 
that all that is done to-night in this Camp Fire, may redound to Thy 
honor and to Thy glory. 

Grant that nothing may occur that shall mar the enjoyment of this 
occasion, and when life with us is ended, may we gather with those who 
have preceded us across the river, and praise Thee for ever and ever. 
Amen." 

Major Milton A. Gherst: Comrades and ladies and gentlomen, I have 
been asked to announce the name of the presiding officer of this Camp- 
fire. I want to relieve your minds at the outset by saying that I will 
not make a speech, and the Comrade who has been selected as your 
presiding officer needs no introduction to the Department of Pennsyl- 
vania. He is handsome, eloquent and irrepressible, and he will speak 
for himself. I have the pleasure of presenting to you Past Depart- 
ment Commander Thos. G. Sample, of Post 128, Allegheny. (Applause.)

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 51 

Past Department Commander Sample: Now what do you think of 
an introduction like that for a man to face a great audience like this 
for the balance of the night? I am reminded of that old experience when 
we used to stand in the front line of battle waiting for the order to 
go in; you old fellows all recollect what that meant; you couldn't do 
any shooting, you just had to stand there and you had to take just 
what came, and just about the time the courage of all was oozing out, 
and their hair beginning to stand up, and they were ready to get out 
and run, the performance began. You would have seen me run after 
that introduction, if it was not for the fact that I had a little pride about 
me that made me determine that I would see this thing out. 

A presiding olUcer is like a bridegroom on a wedding day; he is a 
sort of disagreeable necessity; you have got to have him around to 
sort of encourage the bride to go on with the performance, but he isn't 
of any further use. 

i want to say that this audience ought to please every Comrade of 
the Grand Army and his friends from all parts of the State. When we 
voted in Gettysburg to come to Reading, and Comrade Lem. Buch 
and his friends turned in to give us a welcome, we expected to be 
well treated, but oh my! what a royal reception they are giving us, 
and how well we feel towards the people of Reacung. Now I am not 
going to make any speech; it is not my province. I will trot out the 
horses, and I will start them on the road, and then you can all tell 
whether they approach the quarter chain all right, and if they do what 
they ought to do, applaud them, but if not, let them sit down and hold 
their peace. 

The grst number on the program — I am trying to think that I am 
young, but I am not; I will just put my glasses on — the first number will 
be an address of welcome by the Mayor of the city, the Hon. E. R. 
Gerber, who will tell you, Comrades, and you ladies, and the people 
from all parts of the State, how glad the people of Reading are to have 
you here. 

Mayor Gerber: Mr. President, officers and members of the Grand 
Army, ladies and gentlemen, one year ago my predecessor extended the 
formal invitation to you to hold your next Encampment in this city. 
He described its advantages as a convention city to you, told you of 
the beauty with which nature has endowed it, and of the respect of its 
people for the Grand Army of the Republic. You accepted that invita- 
tion and it now becomes my duty as the present chief executive to 
welcome you among us. I know of no organization that is more en- 
titled to be received with unstinted hospitality and welcome than that 
of the Grand Army. I know of no body of men who are more welcome 
in the homes of our people than the men who offered their lives in de- 
fense of those homes, when danger threatened. 

Time moves on relentlessly and unceasingly; I need not tell you that 
your ranks are thinning out, but the glory of your deeds and the memory 
of your sacrifices will go on undimmed and unforgotten long after all 
of us have passed away.

52 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

To bid you welcome, therefore, is not only a pleasant duty, but it is an 
honor which I esteem. I trust that your sojourn in this city which was 
founded by the Penns 157 years ago, will be pleasant and profitable; 
that you will carry home with you recollections of time well spent, 
and that we may all be better and more patriotic for your coming. I 
bid you welcome not once, but thrice welcome. I might say in this 
connection a few words in behalf of the committee which arranged for 
this gathering. That committee, headed by your Comrade Lemon 
Buch has worked hard and successfully, how successfully you have 
doubtless already observed. Comrade Buch began work immediately 
on his return from the Encampment a year ago and has been at it ever 
since. He has had the hearty co-operation of our people and he is 
justly proud of the result of his labors. I congratulate your Chairman. 
I congratulate the committees that have assisted him, and I congratu- 
late the Grand Army. Again I bid you welcome. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: In the eternal fitness of things, it is in order to re- 
spond to this welcome; it is proper that some person should respond on 
behalf of the Department of Pennsylvania. We have many eloquent 
men in our ranks, and if you were in our conventions sometimes, you 
would suppose that we were all natural born orators, but there is one 
among us who stands away above us all as the most eloquent Comrade 
of the Grand Army of the Republic, who will respond in behalf of the 
Department of Pennsylvania and in behalf of his Comrades from the 
North, South, East and West, Past Commander-in-Chief, Comrade 
Thomas J. Stewart. (Great Applause.) 

Past Department Commander Thomas J. Stewart: Mr. Chairman, 
Comrades, ladies and gentlemen, the most dangerous thing on an occa- 
sion of this kind is an introduction. That is what we all are airaid of, 
especially when Comrade Sample ia in the chair. I remember speaking 
of the glorious hospitality and welcome of Reading, a speech that was 
made in one of our Department Encampments, praising another city 
in this State in the warmest terms, and it seems to apply magnifi- 
cently to Reading, although it was not made in the interest of Reading 
at that time, but this Comrade, who made the speech to which I have 
referred, said, "Comrades, ve vill gif you everything you vant; if you 
vant wasser, all you got to do is to ask for it, and you can get it, or 
you can go into any drug store and if you vant anyting else to drink, 
dey vill gif it to you, and he says, it is the ^nest place to live ever you 
vas in in your life. Dey got de nicest girls to wait on de tables by de 
hotels; day alvays pring you someding goot to eat, anyting you vant, 
you yust ask dem and you get it, and if you go dere to live, you vill 
live, forefer, if someting don't happen." (Laughter.) 

I think we would all be glad to stay in Reading, "if someting don't 
happen." But even if something does J^appen, the Mayor has assured 
use that he turns over the keys of the city to the Grand Army of the 
Republic for the time being. I have seen welcome written almost 
everywhere.

GRAND ARMY OP THE REPUBLIC. 53 

1 remember an occasion when the Grand Army of the Republic met 
in its annual Encampment in a city of this State where they had all 
the flags out, and the banners were thick, and we were marching past 
a large building in the parade where there was a great banner bunging 
out, and innumerable smaller banners with the word "welcome" written 
overy every one of them, and the flags were flying and the bands play- 
ing, and a comrade said, as some of us were riding along past this 
great building, "What is that building?" The driver says, "That's the 
jail." (Laughter.) So you see we are welcome everywhere, although 
sometimes we don't seem to appreciate it because we don't wish to par- 
take of the hospitality of that particular institution, but Reading to- 
night has given a glorious welcome to the Grand Army of the Republic 
and the veteran soldier. Your flags old and new, large and small are 
waving a welcome to us from the windows, from the hill sides and from 
the mountain tops, and that flag never had any better or nobler de- 
fenders in all its history than the men of the Grand Army of the Re- 
public. (Applause.) 

The Grand Army of the Republic, Mr. Mayor, is honored, sir, by being 
within your gates, and accepting of your hospitality. It is an honor to 
be within the gates of the county and within the gates of the city that 
gave to the cause of the Union some of that great band of 530 men that 
shall live down through the ages as the "First Defenders." (Applause.) 

They, like all the great hosts that took part in that four years of trial 
and of war, become soldiers under the highest, strongest and grandest 
impulse that can actuate men, and whereever the soldier and sailor ap- 
pears in this day and time, we are glad to see that he is welcome, and 
especially do we recognize and appreciate that he is welcome in the 
city of Reading, whence went forth so many of your citizens to help 
make up the armies of the Union from '61 to '65. 

We to night can appreciate looking back over the years from 1860 to 
this magniflcent present, just what was involved in that great struggle, 
but never was there a result struggled for by any nation in all history 
that was more completely realized or which carried on its banners 
principles of greater importance to the liberties of the world. The flag 
of this Republic to night floats proudly and grandly over every foot of 
our territory and the men who in the days long gone with angry hands 
were reaching for the stars in its blue, and who would have torn it 
from its place and driven it from the sky — these men are now ready to 
acknowledge that their own banner went down in defeat, and they are 
ready to rejoice in that defeat and that we have to-day a united coun- 
try, a country dedicated to freedom and humanity ever since the new 
morning dawned upon the old at Appomattox. For flfty years we have 
lived in glory, we have lived in grandeur and in magnificent achievement 
in this country, but all that we have of glory, all that we have of gran- 
deur in this magnificent present, are but the fruits that were gathered 
from the seed time which was from '61 to '65 when the soldier and the 
sailor offered their lives to keep the flag in its place and to keep this land

united, and what we have today as security in our homes and what we 
have of solidity in our institutions, are the result of all that was done 
during those four heroic years in the life of this Republic. 

We are glad to be here in this city to-night, and all these welcomes 
•and these reunions revive and stimulate the patriotism that kept the 
men in the field and the sailors on the decks of our ships of war during 
all those four years, and this glorious welcome to Reading can but 
revive the patriotism and stimulate it in the hearts of the younger men 
who must be the defenders in the years to come of all their fathers 
won in the years that are gone. 

The mayor said something about the declining years of the soldier. It 
is true so far as the veteran soldier is concerned, that we are passing 
along; we are falling off, and we realize and understand and know that 
the evening shadows are gathering about us. We realize that the boys 
of '61 to '65, of which there were 231,000 in the Union Army under 
sixteen years of age, 15,000 under fourteen years old, and 288 under 
twelve years of age, and in that great aggregate of the millions gath- 
ered under the old flag, there were 2,000,000 of men under 21 years of 
age, who are approaching the gathering twilight of their years. They do 
not view that with sadness nor do they speak of it in tears, but rather 
in elation that their lot was cast in a time when it was their privilege 
and their glory to work, to toil and to endure, that the nation might 
be united, might be consolidated, and that it might take its place as 
the leader of all the nations of the earth, leading them up to a new 
and better history and to a newer and grander life. (Applause.) 

We meet here in our reunions and we relate the old experiences 
and we sing the old songs, and no songs ever had such a place in the 
hearts of the people as the songs that were sung from '61 to '65, some 
of the airs that were rendered by this magniflcent band in this great 
meeting to-night. 

No war has given us such airs, such sentiment and such song, and 
out of no war in all history, out of one of which came our "Star 
Spangled Banner" has there been forged on the anvil of war, in the 
white heat of battle, any such organization of soldiers and sailors as 
that which makes up the Grand Army of the Republic to-day, an organi- 
zation which has always been close to this nation's heart, an organiza- 
tion that has been more deeply rooted in the hearts and affections of the 
people than any organization that ever existed; an organization that 
has taught the people patriotism and taught them to love and revere 
and honor the flag of their qountry; that has unfurled the stars and 
stripes over every school house until the children are taught to look 
out and see that —

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 55 

"There are many flags of many a land 

And flags of every hue, 
But there is no flag however grand 

Ldke our own red. white and blue. 

Then hurrah for the flag, our country's flag 

Its stripes and white stars too; 
There is no flag in any land 

Like our own red, white and blue. 

I know where the prettiest colors are, 

And I'm sure if I only knew 
How to get them here. I could make a flag 

Of glorious red, white and blue. 

I would cut a piece from the evening sky 

Where the stars were shining through 
And use it just as it was on high 

For my stars and field of blue. • 

Then I'd want a part of a fleecy cloud 

And some red from a rainbow bright; 
And put them together side by side 

For my stripes of red and white. 

We shall always love the stars and stripes, 

And we mean to be ever true 
To this land of ours, and the dear old flag 

The red. the white and blue." 

To-night as the defenders of our flag, in its hour of darkness and trial, 
in these piping times of peace, when the men of the Grand Army of the 
Republic are as loyal and as true as they were in the days of war, we 
come within your midst, and accept with kindly hearts your glorious 
welcome and your splendid hospitality. 

I accept it for all the Grand Army of the Republic all over this nation, 
for the men who have taken your torn battle standards and blood 
stained banners and carried them in a pilgrimage from the Atlantic to 
the Pacific coast. 

I accept it for every man living to-day who followed the flag of the 
Union in the war for the suppression of the Rebellion, and all the wars 
in which this land has been engaged. 

I accept it for all the patriotic men and women who aided th^ old 
armies of the Union in all the work they had to do. I accept it for 
every man who sleeps to-night in an unknown grave, and who gave 
not only his life, but his very name, for his country. I accept it on 
behalf of the Grand Army of the Republic located within the glorious 
State of Pennsylvania, rich in all her soldiers dead and living, rich in 
patriotism and in affection for the Union, and for all that we as a people 
have accomplished and hold so dear, and for all those for whom I 
accept this welcome, I voice the prayer that there may never be a time 
in all the years of this Republic, when the men who are willing to 
give their lives and shed their blood upon the altars of human liberty 
and human progress, shall be less welcome than they are in the city 
of Reading to-night, and I assure you of the unstinted, heartfelt thanks 
and appreciation of the Grand Army of the Republic. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: Didn't I tell you what you might expect? That's the 
first one of the Grand Army of th© Republic that I have had the pleas-

ure of presenting. Now you will believe me in everything else that I 
may say during the balance of the evening. 

We will now have some music by the quartette of Post 16. 

A Comrade: The quartette ain't here; they will not believe you any 
more. (Laughter.) 

The Chairman: Well, it's on the program; I supposed they were here; 
if not, then the band will toot a small piece. 

The band then played "The American Patrol." This represented the 
approach, the march past, and disappearance of a military parade, and 
was cheered to the echo. 

The Chairman: If I had had the opportunity to-night to introduce the 
next number on the program, it would have given me more genuine, 
heartfelt satisfaction than anything I know of. My own daughter was 
to have been the song-bird on this occasion, and was down on the pro- 
gram for this number, but she was compelled on account of the sick- 
ness of her child, to return to her home in Kentucky; otherwise she 
would have been here to-night to have sung for this splendid audience. 

(Referring to Mrs. Irene Sample Blackwell of Kentucky.) 

The Grand Army of the Republic is a peculiar institution. We elect 
our Post Commanders and Department Commanders and then we come 
together from all the great states in this magnificent country, and out 
of all the 255 thousand members of the order, we pick out one man and 
we elect him as a Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Re- 
public. Just think of it, that the grandest body of men that ever 
marched under any banner or any flag, come together and one is se- 
lected, forty years after the war is over, to lead these men for a year. 
To-night the Department of Pennsylvania and citizens of Reading are 
honored with the presence of the Commander-in-Chief of the Grand 
Army of the Republic, and while he is a Massachusetts man, he is a 
Pennsylvania soldier. It gives me great pleasure therefore to present 
to you to-night. Comrade W. W. Blackmar, the Commander-in-Chief 
of the Grand Army of the Republic. (Applause.) 

Commander-in-Chief Blackmar: Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, 
it is a mighty hard thing, and we all know it who do some speaking, 
to follow dear old Tom Stewart, but he has done a good thing to-night 
for he has waked up this audience and made them so receptive that 
anything with a Grand Army badge on it will be acceptable. I thank the 
presiding officer first for presiding. I have just come back from a long, 
long trip through the Southern States and to the Pacific Ocean, 
and I heard on my trip that dear old Tom Sample was sick, and I am 
so glad to find it is not true, but if he is sick, I don't want to have any- 
thing to do with him when he is well. 

Yes, I am from Massachusetts; but when the war broke out and men 
were called for, I came home and enlisted in a Pennsylvania regiment, 
and I have always been very thankful that I did. I did another thing in 
Pennsylvania, I was born here; (Laughter) over on the Delaware, and 
for that I am thankful, although we are getting old, as some of them

have told you. These fellows will all deny it if you get at them 'per- 
sonally, but as our presiding officer and as my honored predecessor in 
this exalted position who spoke to you so eloquently has said, we would 
not have it otherwise than that, we of the generation that did not 
shirk its duty, but assumed the great responsibility of the war of the 
Rebellion and fought it to a finish. (Applause). For that we are 
thankful, for that we are proud, and if we must give up our experi- 
ences during the great war of the rebellion, if we must give up the 
dear friendships that have come to us during these years since the war 
in the great Grand Army of the Republic, why even the glorious, splen- 
did, envied youth of the young women and men who are just coming 
upon the stage, we would pass by with the truthful saying in our hearts, 
we will not ask for youth, we would not take it as a gift if it must 
deprive us of our experience during and since the great war of the 
Rebellion. 

For a good while now I have been trying to imitate and emulate my 
honored predecessor in this office. There are several of them upon the 
stage here to-night, the Nestors of the organization, by going out and 
trying to do something for the old comrades that shall at least remind 
them that I highly appreciate the great honor conferred in electing me 
to this office. I wondered what I could do to best show them my ap- 
preciation and perhaps do something for the order, and I made up my 
mind, that God giving me strength, I would look into the faces and take 
by the hand as many Comrades as I possibly could during my term of 
office, and so I have been out and I speak of it for many reasons, and 
for two especially. 

I began away up in the New England states and went to their De- 
partment Encampments all but Connecticut, and I was there last night, 
and then started out for Delaware where my honored predecessors 
Beath and Wagner came to see me off. We had a Department Encamp- 
ment in Delaware, and we had to walk very carefully for fear we would 
fall off the State — we were in Wilmington, Delaware, a little bit of a 
state, and it was magnificent in its reception. Wherever we go, no 
matter how few they are, the boys make us so welcome, that it is a 
reward for the effort in getting there, and these dear Comrades come and 
started me off and bade me God speed in the long journey before me. We 
went on through Maryland and on through Washington and on to At- 
lanta, Georgia, to Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Florence, Alabama, and 
then ever beyond through Memphis and Arkansas to the Hot Springs in 
Arkansas where they held their Department Encampment; then to New 
Orleans, from there up to Dallas, Texas, and from there to Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, and then over into California, that magnificent State to 
Los Angeles and San Francisco, and then up to Marysville beyond 
Sacremento where they had their Department Encampment; then over 
to Ogden, Utah, and then, where we are going to meet next September, 
to that magnificent city, Denver, Colorado, and they are making great 
preparations for you there and want you to come and bring all your

friends, and it does seem, if they keep half of their promises, that you 
will have the time of your lives. From there I went to Kansas and 
then to Nebraska and then on to the glorious old Department of Illinois, 
where we wound up that trip. Now we are starting out to take in the 
great middle states, and after visiting the great middle states, along in 
July we propose to go up into the Northwest where the Department 
Encampments are to be held and they are going to have a great camp- 
fire in Boise, Idaho, and from there we go to Tacoma and Seattle, 
Washington, and then the Surveyor General of Alaska, who is Past De- 
partment Commander of Illinois, and whose home is at Rockford, is 
on his way back and he has invited us to come, and we have accepted his 
invitation. He is the Surveyor Greneral, next in command to the Gov- 
ernor of Alaska, and we are going up to Sitka to hold a magnificent 
Campfire up there, so I tell you of the little journeys we have planned, 
and the thousands we have met and thousands we expect to meet, and 
we have conveyed to them as we met them, as I convey to you, the 
good wishes, the God-speed, the hearty loving words of welcome over 
every part of this great country from all the Comrades who stood 
shoulder to shoulder with you in the battles of the Republic from Bull 
Run to Appomattox. It is a glorious thing to meet all these comrades, 
and, my comrades, you need not be ashamed of the dear old boys wher- 
ever you find them anywhere in this country. Why, we got off in some 
Departments that we never perhaps went to before — we step off the 
train and do we land among stangers? Oh, no; we see there on the plat- 
form a man wearing the little bronze button, and we go up to him and 
put our hand in his, and we are then hand in hand not only with a 
comrade, but with a dear friend, for the terms are synonymous, and 
we are received as brothers wherever we go in this great land. Oh, my 
Comrades; that little bronze button that cannot be bought, that cannot 
be received and owned by inheritance even, that little bronze button is 
me open sesame to all and everything in the nature of a loving recep- 
tion wherever we go, and these dear old fellows realize and remember 
as do you, that even Rockafeller or Carnegie, or any man of great 
wealth cannot buy that little bronze button. (Applause.) How did 
you get it? Oh, Comrades; you earned it upon the battlefields of the 
Republic, and no man can possess himself of that, except he earned it 
where we earned it, and it is indeed an emblem to be prized, and one 
that has not and can never have its equal upon this globe. 

I was away out in Kansas, and I heard of the death of my Judge-Advo- 
cate, Judge Thayer, of St. Louis, a learned and splendid Comrade; a 
man who had been for many years a member of the Circuit Court, and 
had been mentioned for the Supreme Court. The loss to us as an or- 
ganization was great, but while I was there in Kansas — it only demon- 
strates what we learned in the great war, that no matter how magnifi- 
cent a Comrade fell before the bullets of the enemy, some one stepped 
into his place, and all things went on as usual. Out there, as I say, 
I learned of his death. The Judge-Advocate of the Department is

charged with important duties about various things, and out there in 
Kansas I met this man and he was a splendid Comrade, and I took a 
great liking to him, as you would to a learned man, a man who was 
the Judge of the DistrictCJourt, had been three times elected — they elect 
tneir judges out there, not appoint them, as we do in our State, for 
life — an ideal fellow, a splendid Comrade, and found that he 
rode in the Third West Virginia Cavalry in the old brigade that served 
up here in Pennsylvania; he was up here at the time your Commander- 
in-Chief was at Chambersburg; got there the next morning in time to 
see the results of that cowardly and uncalled for burning of the homes 
of women and children. He saw, as did they ail who were there, the 
horrors of that terrible scene. Oh, it was something to be remembered 
as long as life lasts. That little town, beautiful, as you know, was 
laid in ashes; the people there without homes wandering in the streets, 
the dead unburied, the sick lying on the sidewalk. It reminded me then 
and does now as I look upon it, as I ^recall it to my mind, like a terrible 
dream, of some things I have read of the old French Revolution where 
the people were crazed; they were going through the streets where the 
rebels ha4 just been driven out of them, and in one place a Major had 
paused a little too long, demanding a ransom before he burned the 
house, and hearing our cheers as we came in in the early morning, the 
householder instead of paying the ransom demanded, put a bullet 
through the rebel Major's head. I shall never forget the scene; an 
old gray-haired citizen had the body of this Major on a wheel-barrow, 
tne head lying over the wheel, and was wheeling him through the 
streets, and the citizens, men, women and children were picking at >.is 
clothing, and saying everything that you can think of abouc this poor 
dead rebel. It was a scene that, if put on canvas by an artist would 
chill the blood of the people that looked at his canvas a hundred years 
after he had executed it. As prevost marshal of the hrigade, 
I had charge of the prisoners; we brought most of them in with 
us, and we have got them in the square and the burning buildings 
were all around, and we made a circle of the provost guard about them, 
and I am mighty glad to say as a Pennsylvania boy, and as our eloquent 
Commander Stewart has said, I am glad to say for the honor of our 
old birth-state and the uniform I wore, that we gave them protection. 
I look back upon it and speak of It now with satisfaction. I stood there 
and faced those citizens and a lot of our boys who lost their heads and 
led them on as a mob — they wanted to take these prisoners and throw 
them into the burning buildings; you could hardly blame them if you 
had seen the wreck and ruin that was around them. That beautiful 
city of Chambersburg would now hardly suggest the horrible scene of 
that morning, but this Judge-Advocate followed those men together 
with our command until we overtook them at Moorefield and then at 
the battle-cry "Remember Chambersburg," we went in and annihilated 
their whole division so that McCausland never appeared again in the 
field with any command, and this Judge-Advocate remembered all this

and brought it back to my mind with all the details of the final charge 
at Moorefield. I immediately appointed that splendid Comrade for our 
Judge-Advocate-Geueral of the Grand Army of the Republic, and when 
you come to see Judge Moore at Denver you Will indeed find a splendid 
Grand Army man. 

Now I have told you this story for many purposes, and one is to illus- 
trate this fact, that everywhere through this country I find our Comrades 
men of note and infiuence, worthy men; men that we may be proud of, 
holding good positions in their communities, often leaders in their 
communities; they are men worthy to be respected as they are, and the 
Grand Army of the Republic, as has been said to-night, is holding the 
love and affection of the people throughout this magnificent country. 

Even in the South — I dreaded to go down there, because I didn't know 
what might be said, and I feared I might say something in return — I 
wanted to treat those people fairly and well. You know we turned 
over to them at the surrender at. Appomattox — those of you that were 
there will remember it, we divided with them our food and gave them 
our extra clothinng; we began by treating them well. I didn't know 
wnat they might do, but I found almost without exception, they were 
friendly and pleasant. They have seen the light, and it seems that 
everything is coming right, and the final battles in which we were en- 
gaged, are now ripening into feelings of loyalty and friendship that make 
for unity, for the strong uniting of this magnificent country of ours 
into a nation, one and the one, among the nations of the world. 

There was only one little incident down there away in the South, 
when one of the Confederates — some of them I had met in Boston — 
one of them spoke up from the circle around me and said **I would like 
to hear from the Commander-in-Chief, his opinion about our co^nstitu- 
tional action forty odd years ago in performing our duty according 
.o the Constitution." I pretended not to hear him. I have a very 
decided opinion on that question, and did not think that was the place 
to discuss that question, and I remarked to another Confederate that it 
was a beautiful day, but the Confederate was determined to be heard 
and he said to me, "I am a Virginian." I looked at him, and I took one 
step nearer to him, and I looked him right in the eye, and I said to 
him, "I am an American." (Applause.) That ended the incident, and 
that, my Comrades, is the keynote of this our great country; we are 
Americans. True, I live in Massachusetts, but as I have traveled all 
over these different Departments, away out to the Pacific coast and back 
to the Atlantic, seeing this magnificent country and only the stars and 
stripes wherever I have been in all these more than ten thousand miles 
of travel, the belief has grown with me until it has sunk into my heart, 
that that is the thing, that is the belief, to teach our children, and our 
people, and to say ourselves, we are Americans, and this great country 
belongs to us. 

Why, out in Denver they describe their city as the most American 
city that was ever dreamed of, and their city, Oh, Mr. Mayor; you

should hear them describe their city. I have got an old trunk full of 
things that have been told to me about their cities by the Mayors 
throughout the land, and as for the Governors, splendid fellows, two of 
them Grand Army men, I might tell you how with the greatest grace 
and courtesy they accepted positions on the staff of the Commander-in- 
Chief. We are getting a fine lot of men on the staff. 

If you go through this country, as you all should, travel through the 
country and see what a magnificent country it is, worth living and 
dying for, you will love it better than ever. 

I am glad to see so many young people here. All through the dif- 
ferent places where I have been, the schools have been closed and the 
children lined the streets, each provided with a flag. In Ogden and 
Los Angeles, they were there in perfect swarms, and it is a splendid 
thing to have it so, my Comrades. It is a gratifying thing to known 
and feel as Comrades, that we are respected and honored by the pure 
and innocent souls of the children. We must appeal to them and teach 
them the lessons of patriotism; that is what we stand for; that is 
what these noble women of the Relief Corps and Ladies of the G. A. R. 
are doing with all their heart and soul every day in every department 
of this great nation, and there is where the work must be done, to teach 
the children patriotism, the school children. No matter what you give 
them in the way of education, no matter what you shower upon them 
in the way of privileges in our public schools, if they are not taught 
the fundamental, basal principles of patriotism, all the rest is wasted 
and you are in danger of bringing up a great community of men and 
women who may as well be anarchists. 

We, my Comrades, wherever v/e are in all this great country, are 
loyal, true and patriotic and we are a great conservative body, the 
greatest conservative body of men in the country, and anybody that 
heads any gi-eat movement looking to the benefit of our nation, the 
Grand Army has been right behind him and helps him in every way. 
We must help the children; teach them patriotism by our own spirit 
and these songs, these beautiful tunes that the band has been playing, 
so much better from our standpoint that the music of Beethoven or 
Mozart are in danger of being forgotten. Less than ten years 
ago, in a great audience that filled Tremont Temple in Boston, where 
my Post was conducting Memorial Day exercise, we had invited a school, 
and one young lady said afterwards, that that was the first time she 
had ever heard the Star Spangled Banner, but if you will remember 
not so very many years ago, before the Spanish-American war, our 
old war tunes become unfashionable and you did not hear them. It is 
a pity to let them die out. They mean something because of the men 
that marched to those tunes, throughout the war of the Rebellion. 

Two years ago I was in Japan and as I went into the great world's 
fair at Nagasaki, I heard the band playing something, and what do you 
suppose it was? "Marching Through Georgia." Why, my Comrades 
you know if you think a moment that the Brritish army, any army, the

Japanese will do very well for an illustration, any army made up of 
brave men don't march to the tune of cowards or poltroons, and when 
I heard the dear old Marching Through Georgia being played by a Japan- 
ese band, it gave me a very good opinion of the Japs, and I looked at 
them, the army of soldiers and the naval men on the ships, and I made 
up my mind two things were going to happen ; they were going to fight 
Russia and going to give her the test of her life, and so I said two 
years ago. (Applause.) 

One word, my Comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic, and 
you younger people here, one word that may explain in great measure 
the terrible and unprecedented defeat of the Russians on land and sea. 
Say that those armies of the Russians en the land had won; say that 
those great naval forces had won on the sea of Japan. Would their 
sailors or their soldierrs have been one whit better off? There is not 
one of them that owns a rood 'of land or a bit of personal property. They 
do not have the right or the power to read, only a very small portion 
of them. They have absolutely no interest in their government; they 
have no rights and no power of holding property, real or personal. All 
the property of Russia is held in the hands of a few thousand men; 
tney have no interest in their government, hence they are not like the 
army that we marched with shoulder to shoulder during the War of the 
Rebellion. Our bayonets were thinking bayonets and we of this great 
nation were fighting in a war more to be justified than any war that was 
ever waged upon the face of the world. So you may account, in great 
measure, for the defeat of the Russian army. Their soldiers and their 
sailors unlike ourselves, my Comrades, have no interest in their gov- 
ernment; they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain either by vic- 
tory or defeat. It does not mean to them what it did to us. 

Now, my Comrades, I bid you God-speed. I join with my Comrade, 
who has thanked you so eloquently, in thanks to this magnificent mu- 
nicipality, in thanks to its Mayor, and through him to every individual 
in this city, and here in this magnificent State of Pennsylvania, and 
in this beautiful city, it is a peculiar delight to the old soldier to find 
that forty years after the war, the Mayor, representing the younger 
generations, and the ^ople under his government can be so loyal, can 
be so true, can be so considerate of the men who fought the battles of 
the Republic and made that the only flag that can wave from the Pacific 
to the Atlantic, from the Lakes to the Gulf, over this magnificent coun- 
try. 

I thank you for your reception and for your attention. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: There are some things in which the Grand Army of 
the Republic of Pennsylvania is very much interested and one of those 
things is the boys and girls that are being educated at the expense of 
this State. There have been nearly eighteen thousand of them sent out 
in all parts of this great country, sons and daughters of the soldiers of 
the war of the Rebellion. I have one here, and I am going to escort 
her to the front of the platform.

(The Chairman then escorted a little girl apparently about five years 
old to the front of the platform.) 

Now this is Miss Elsie Beebe, of the Chester Springs Soldiers* Or- 
phans' School, and I have brought her out here because I want you to 
hear what this little girl has to say. 

The little girl then cleverly recited a poem entitled, "I'se Bad, I Guess 
I is," which was roundly applauded. 

The little girl was in charge of Dr. M. B. Hughes, Superintendent 
and Miss Bertha Holgate, of the Home. 

The Chairman: I just want to say to this audience that we have three 
of those schools in this State and we will be delighted — the members of 
the Commission will be delighted to have the citizens of Pennsylvania 
go into them and see what we are endeavoring to do for the boys and 
girls. We are proud of these children ; we are proud of what they can 
do, and proud of what they have done, and we believe that this great 
State in the future will be proud of the record that has been made by 
these children when the schools shall be closed. 

Now Pennsylvania is a great State; I needn't tell you that, because 
we are here in Berks county and that is a part of Pennsylvania. (Ap- 
plause). They don't always vote right all the time, you know, but 
ours is a great State. Pennsylvania has been honored by the National 
Encampment from its early history by very many Comrades filling the 
position of Commander-in-Chief. To-day we are the only State that has 
four living Past Commanders-in-Chief, represented within our ranks. 
We have the oldest— the Senior Ck>mmander-in-Chief, Past Department 
Commander of Pennsylvania, the Psist National Junior Vice Commander- 
in-Chief and Past Penior Vice Commander-in-Chief, and the Past Com- 
mander-in-Chief, who, in the early history of the Grand Army of the 
Republic, when it was not so popular to belong to it as it is now when 
it required earnest and sincere effort on the part of the men who were 
carrying this banner in order to keept it together — these men are still 
in the ranks. 

Napoleon once said to one of his armies, "Your proudest boast should 
be that you belong to the army of Italy," and these Comrades demon- 
strate that your proudest boast should be that you, from '61 to '65 be- 
longed to the army for the suppression of the Rebellion, and since that 
time you have marched along in the ranks of the Grand Army of the 
Republic. Among the men who are here to-night, is the Senior Past 
Commander-in-Chief, Comrade General Louis Wagner, and we will be 
glad to hear from him. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: Mr. Chairman, Comrades, ladies 
and Gentlemen, I of course knew that was coming and therefore all 
ihis Senior business didn't astonish me a bit. There is a protest, how- 
ever, I desire to make, Mr. Chairman, to the suggestion made by Past 
Commander-in-Chief Stewart and Commander-in-Chief Blackmar, and 
that is, that we are getting old. This little girl is the orphan of a sol- 
dier who fought in the war for the suppression of the Rebellion; it is

not necessary to make any further comments. (Laughter and applause.) 
Some of these people may be getting old, by the way they are hobbling 
around on sticks, but that is their misfortune; I don't know, perhaps 
their fault; I protest against all that exhibit of seniority. Of course 
you understand that the only war I fought in was that of '61 to '65 and 
not as you may be led to believe, by what you have heard from the 
Chairman, that I fought in the war of 1812. (Laughter.) 

I am very much interested in parts of this official program, that 
portion of it headed "Berks' heroes in the Civil War." First I want 
to protest against that suggestion "Civil War." There never was any 
civil war. There was a rebellion and we put it down, but I am inter- 
ested in that suggestion for other reasons; if it is fame to be killed in 
battle and have your name mis-spelled, as I note upon this program 
it is not the sort of fame we crave. I find among the heroes of Berks, 
under the head of the 88th Regiment, which was ours — we suppressed 
the Rebellion. There were three companies from Reading, the first was 
Company A, commanded as appears on the program by Captain George 
^^. Knable. Now some of the old soldiers ought to know that that is 
Captain Knabb, a man living to-day and suffering mentally and phy- 
sically, decrepit in every possible respect, caused by a bullet received 
in battle which lodged under his spinal column, one of the heroes of 
the war, evidently forgotten, even to the extent of believing him dead, 
when he is still living, a care and a burden and an anxiety to his wife 
and his children, because of the wounds he received in battle, and from 
which he is suffering and continues to suffer, even unto this day. It 
is not the men, ladies and gentlemen, who are killed who suffered the 
most, but take a case like this, in daily and hourly pain* and misery; 
fortunately he has reached that condition of mind and nerve when he 
hardly knows that he is alive, one of Berks county's brave soldiers. 

Then when you take these other names and companies — Company B, 
Captain Henry R. Myers, and Company H, Captain D. A. Griffith, and 
call the roll of these men from Berks county who enlisted as soldiers 
for the suppression of the Rebellion, and joined the regiment to which 
I belonged. This man and that man, and the other man, gave their 
lives for the maintenance of our institutions and for the support* of 
our flag, and if this roll was called to-night, while these names might 
appear strange to many of you, I am sifre that there are hundreds 
present who would recall them, Captain Rhoads, Lieut. Col. James 
Blaine, killed at Bull Run, the battle in which I was killed, according 
to the newspapers, the battlefield I visited but a few weeks ago and 
saw the place where he gave his life for the country and where I was 
wounded and taken prisoner. The newspaper said I was killed, but as 
I said to the man who published one of the papers that containedjthe 
news, that I knew it was not so as soon as I saw it, and I have had no 
confidence in the papers since that time; couldn't believe a word they 
said. They would make a false report rather than a true one. He got 
la little excited and finally laid his hand on my shoulder and said,

"Never mind, General, we were not running the newspaper at that 
time; if we had been, you would have been dead." Why, if you will 
take this list furnished you in this official bulletin, it will bring you 
back to the years '61 to '65 when hundreds of thousands of them enlisted 
for the defense of the flag, hundreds of thousands who left your State 
nievjer to return, not even as corpes to be buried with the honors of 
war. But the country exists to-day one and indivisible because of their 
s;ervices and because of the fact that they, and we, and hundreds of 
thousands of others, responded to the call, and said, "We are coming. 
Father Abraham, five hundred thousand more." We came, and others 
came to put down the attempt to destroy this country of ours, and 
thanked God that we secured the victory after all these conflicts, and 
that for forty years now we have met, and I trust and pray that for 
many more years to come, we shall meet, not to wave the bloody shirt, 
as they do in some parts of our country — not in the North — but to re- 
count our battles over again, because it can only be in that way kept 
alive in the hearts and minds of the coming generation, the great truths 
for which we fought and which we firmly established, it can only be 
by doing this, by gathering in places like this, with thoughts of patriot- 
ism and love of country, and determination to give life, if need be, for the 
flag — only in this way, our spirit can be left in the minds and hearts 
of those who will succeed us as the coming generations of men and 
women in this land of ours. 

It is noble and grand to die for one's country, yes, a nobler deed no 
man can do, but it is just as noble and just as grand to live for that 
country, as well as to die for it, and by your example as a citizen to 
show forth that the principles for which we fought and the convictions 
which influenced us shall remain as a lesson of loyalty for the genera- 
tions that are to follow us, that they may realize that they are princi- 
ples and doctrines and rules that will make for the best interests of 
the land, and we, as the remainder, if you please, we who still live to 
receive the plaudits of our admiring fellow-citizens and friends, must 
so live and so shape our conduct and our action, that the coming genera- 
tions will learn that we fought not merely for an idea, for a principle, 
but that in our lives as well as in our deaths, if we had been called to 
die, we honored our country. 

We have lived to see the principles of our republican form of govern- 
ment so firmly established that all Hell could not shake it, and our 
country will continue prosperous and an example for all the nations, let 
us hope for hundreds of thousands of years to come. 

The Chairman: I was nearly horrified and nearly fell off my chair 
when I heard Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner use the expression "all 
hell." 

Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner: You can readily see why Sample 
was horrified when he heard the word hell. He wants to keep just as 
far away from it as possible. I don't know what he has done to make 
him so sensitive. (Xjaughter.)

66 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. DEPT. OF PENNA., 

The Chairman: We have another Past Commander-in-Chief a royal 
good fellow, one that we all love. 

When we were out to Denver with the Commander-in-Chief making ar- 
rangements for the Encampment, the Mayor of Denver said in his 
address, **We want you to come to Denver and bring everybody with 
you. We will welcome you to our homes, and we will take you to our 
hearts, and our girls will clasp you in their arms and wish you God- 
speed." When it came to my time to speak I said that about the time 
we got there there might be a rush and I would prefer, if the girls were 
to clasp me in their arms, that they would clasp me now. 

I want to introduce to you Past Commander-in-Chief Comrade Beath. 
(Applause.) He knows more law than all of us combined. 

Past Commander-in-Chief Beath: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and ladies 
and gentlemen, I am not going to make a speech or try to; the hour is 
getting late and probably there has been talk enough. I wish I could 
throw in some of the funny things that Comrade Stewart can get off 
once in a while. We old fellows deal a great deal in reminiscence; I 
could not help thinking of the olden time when I heard this magnifi- 
cent band, this Ringgold band play for us this afternoon, and to-night 
of forty-four years ago, and that is a long time to look back for some 
of you; forty-four years ago there were two young men walking behind 
the Ringgold Band of '61 who became among the first of the Post Com- 
manders of this Department and both Department Commanders and 
both Commanders-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, the 
only regiment in the United States that can boast of two Commanders- 
in-Chief, and I was more than pleased to find that two of the tooters 
of '61 are tooting for us to-night. (Applause.) Long may they be able 
to blow their own horns and everybody else's. One of the funny things 
I can think of connected with the old Ringgold Band — I am not going 
to mention names — but he was a German, and he was out a little later 
than usuel one night, and when he came back into camp he found a 
sentry on guard, and sentry challenged him in the usual way, "Who 
comes there?" and the response was, very quick, "Me;" "Who is me?" 
"I bin John P. Schmidt. I bin John Schmidt of de Band." He belonged 
to the Ringgold Band, and I suppose if we got that off on poor John 
once, it was done a thousand times when they came out on parade. 

We are very proud of the part Reading took in the war of the Re- 
bellion, especially proud of the part it took with the 88th Pennsylvania 
in which we two served, and it was a great regiment, one of the great 
regiments of the war. Comrade Gllligan, who sits in front of us here 
can testify to that. I wish I had time enough to start off and tell you 
more about it. 

Chairman Sample's talk about the rather particular invitation given 
by the Mayor of Denver reminded me of the time of my coming home 
from the three months' service. I was quite ill, and I did't like things 
at all; I had written home that when I came back there must be no 
kissing in the street; that I would not stand for it at all. We marched

down Washington Avenue and were welcomed home, and one of the 
young ladies of our city was going to throw her arms around my neck. 
I said, "Hold on, Em, it's not your turn;" there was a number one 
girl that was to occupy that position, but I didn't want it done on 
Washington avenue, it was too public. I suppose I was ill and feeling 
bad, or 1 wouldn't have acted as I did; I haven't done it since. 

How I have ejijoyed these thirty-five years' attendance on the Na- 
tional Encampments, Comrade Sample has told you. I expect to leave 
soon to spend nearly two months in Europe, but I am coming back in 
time to go to Denver provided our Commander Blackmar don't put a 
veto on it 

Commander-in-Chief Blackmar: We want you to be sure and.be 
there. 

Past Department Commander-in-Chief Beath: Now I fear I am taking 
too much of your precious time and keeping back other speakers that 
/you all want to hear, but I want to say a word for the great work 
that has been done by the ladies' associations connected with the Grand 
Army of the Republic, the Woman's Relief Corps and the Ladies of 
the G. A. R. They have been very great helpers in all our work, and 
we look to them to carry on our work after we have passed away. We 
want these great associations to be maintained and carry on the pa- 
triotic work that we in the past forty years have been endeavoring to 
instil into the hearts and minds of the people of this great country. 
(Applause.) 

• The Chairman: How did you like that joke, about his not permitting 
the girls to throw their arms around his neck on Washington 
Avenue? I want to say to the ladies of the Relief Corps and Ladies of 
the G. A. R. that they can array themselves on Penn street to-morrow 
as he starts out on the parade, and as he marches along, each one can 
kiss him if she wishes to. The difference between him and me was, 1 
had a girl that swore eternal fealty to me — she don't know what she 
has lost — but I will tell you that after I had been away some four or 
five months, I got a letter from my sister in which she said that this 
girl had gone ofC and married a handsomer man, notwithstanding that 
she had sworn to marry me. Now what do you think of that. I had 
my revenge, for the poor fellow that married her, had her to live with, 
and tried to raise a family of fourteen children. (Laughter.) 

We are going to have a few words now from a Comrade who in forty- 
eight hours from now will lay down the gavel of authority and step 
back into the ranks of the faded flowers, one of whom I am which; I 
have the pleasure now of presenting to you the Department Com- 
mander of Pennsylvania, Comrade McNevin, of Post No. 62, Altoona. 

Department Commander McNevin: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and 
friends, after hearing the eloquent addresses of the distinguished 
Comrades who have preceded me, and in view of the fact that there are 
others equally eloquent to follow me, I consider it rather presumptions 
on my part to say anything, and fear that I cannot say anything that

will interest you, and as Comrade Sample has stated, in the course of a 
few days, I will step down in the ranks and become a faded flower. He 
knows very well that during the next few days, I will have troubles 
of my own in trying to preside over this Elxcampment that will con- 
vene to-morrow. I want to save what little bit of voice I have for 
that purpose, therefore I trust the Comrades and friends will excuse 
me from attempting to make any further remarks. 

When I pass out of the office of Department Commander and become 
what is called "a faded flower," I hope I shall follow in the footsteps of 
the other Past Department Commanders present, who, if they are 
faded flowers, are all doing their utmost to continue and maintain the 
principles on which the Grand Army of the Republic is founded. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Chairman: Now we have heard from the cavalry and we have 
heard from the Infantry — rather aged Infantry, some of us, like Com- 
rade Wagner and Eeath, and we have been reading in the papers re- 
cently of what can be done on the water; Togo has simply wiped up 
the water with the other fellow — I can't pronounce that name (Rojest- 
vensky), and I am not going to try, because I am afraid my false 
teeth might fall out, but there has been from the standpoint of the 
"doughboy," the fellow that carried the gun, from his standpoint it 
looks as though the entire naval warfare has been revolutionized; 
they do their fighting underneath the water now; no navy for me, if 
you please; no, I want to be out where I can get a good chance to run 
if the occasion presents itself. Comrade Charles Lawrence of Post 1, 
who served in the navy during the war for the suppression of the Re- 
bellion is present with us and I want to present him to you in a moment, 
but before he gets up I want to tell you a Uttle story about the navy. 
One of our gunboats went up the James River on one occasion, and 
they ran out of their regular ammunition, so they flred everything 
they could get hold of, pieces of railroad iron, and anything that came 
along, and flnally they flred an iron kettle, and as It was sailing through 
the air, there was an old darkey saw it coming, and he looked up and 
he batted his eye, and he turned around and he said: "Fore God, there 
comes a cask of ale." (Laughter and applause.) 

I now have the pleasure of presenting to you. Comrade Charles Law- 
rence, of Post 1, Philadelphia, who will talk to you about the navy. 
You know the navy did things, too; the war of the Rebellion was not 
all fought by the army. 

Comrade Lawrence: Mr. Chairman, Comrades and ladies and gen- 
tlemen, I appreciate the honor of having the opportunity of saying a few 
words to you after all the eloquence you have heard to-night As a 
navy man, we appreciate all the honors bestowed upon the army. I 
have often thought when the grand old veterans walk along the street 
and the people show their great respect for them, that there must be 
some reason for it, and the question is, what have they done to endear 
themselves to the hearts of the American people, and the answer is

they saved the nation. They did something; they sacrificed some- 
thing; they were willing to sacrifice their lives that this great country 
Df ours might live. Our country has been termed a nation without a 
history; let us consider that a moment. But little more than four 
centuries ago, the civilized world did not know that such a land as this 
existed. Other nations had been in existence for thousands of years. 
I have seen buildings in Europe that were erected hundreds of years 
before America was discovered, and they are in existence yet. Look 
back only 125 years ago when our forefathers struggled for freedom 
and independence in this country, and to-day what a great country have 
you got? Look at it. Only a hundred years ago, thirteen struggling 
little colonies with a population of not more than three millions rose 
and had the courage of their convictions to fight and to leave you 
this great country that the veterans saved for you from *61 to '65. 
(Applause.) 

Only a hundred years ago it was the weakest nation and the poorest 
on earth; to-day it stands the strongest anywhere, the greatest in in- 
dustrial pursuits and the most progressive on God's earth. (Applause.) 
Isn't that a history to be proud of? and that is what these veterans did 
from '61 to '65 that makes it possible that this country shall have such 
a history. That is why I glory in the army, and it a pleasure to me to 
recognize what they did. 

I have been spoken of as being in the navy. I thank God that I had 
the opportunity to serve my country in that position. I was with that 
greatest of all admirals, David Glasgow Farragut, on the Mississippi 
River. (Great applause). I feel thankful that whenever the navy was 
called upon, no matter for what duty, they always responded, whether it 
was to fight forts, mines, batteries or fire ships, they were always there 
and always ready. The great Lincoln once said that wherever the dew 
fell heavy enough to wet the grass, there our naval vessels were found 
doing efficient service. Theodore Roosevelt said, in accepting the 
nomination for the Presidency a short time ago, that, "The men who 
fought from '61 to '65 for Union and liberty, not only saved this nation 
from ruin, but bestowed a blessing on all mankind," and the people of 
the United States can see to-day that this is but the fact, so I say we 
have a history that we may well be proud of and be thankful for. 
You need not look to ancient history for deeds of heroism. You need 
not study what the Spartans or the Romans, or the Greeks did; you 
need not read of the charge at Balaklava for deeds of heroism. You 
can find them at home, right here in your own State. No European 
army ever lost fifty per cent, of those engaged in one single engage- 
ment while there were sixty-three regiments in the Union army that 
lost more than fifty per cent., and there were twenty-three regiments 
that lost more than any regiment in any European war had ever lost, 
and there were 122 regiments that lost as many men as were lost at 
Balaklava. The men in the Union army were brave, and so were the 
men in the navy.

70 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

When the Civil War broke out — 

Past Department Commander Wagner: There you go again, the 
"civil war!" 

Comrade Lawrence: Well, when the Rebellion broke out. There were 
but three vessels available here, not more than three hundred seamen 
in all the receiving ships along the coast. A blockade was declared 
extending for two thousand miles, and had that blockade not been 
maintained, there were other nations that were ready to step In and 
anxious to furnish ammunition and ship munitions of war into the 
country, and had it not been for our navy preventing that, the war 
possibly would have gone on until now, and had the navy done noth- 
ing else, their service to the country would have been incalculable, but 
they did more. On the Mississippi river they cut the Confederacy in 
twain. They proved there, that with wooden ships, manned by men 
with iron hearts, we could pass any fort in existence. I have seen men 
many times on the bloody and slippery decks fighting forts, gunboats 
and fire ships. I have seen those men within a stone's throw of these, 
with death and destruction staring them in the face, and notwithstand- 
ing the dreadful roar of the guns and the shrieking of ti^e shot and 
shell, not a man quailed. Every man did his duty like an American. 
(Applause.) 

These are the kind of men of which 1 speak; these were the kind of 
men in addition to the army, that saved this great country of yours, 
from '61 to '65, and can such men ever be forgotten? No! Their names 
will live as long as the stars shine in Heaven and as long as the sun 
lights the earth. (Applause). The men that brought that flag out 
triumphant without a star being obliterated, and not a blemish on it 
anywhere, pure and sacred as it came, an honor to you, an honor to 
them, and an honor to the country, cannot be forgotten. 

Our nation is a great nation. No accident of birth can put a man on 
the throne here. Every one has an opportunity. It can be truthfully 
said here, "Honor and fame from no condition rise. Act well your part; 
there all the honor lies." 

The mighty ocean is composed of little drops of water which the 
constant play of the winds disturb and bring from the bottom to the 
top. The rays of the sun make them scintillate like diamonds for the 
time being until they give place to other drops, and so with our nation. 
A man may be on the bottom to-day and on the top to-morrow. 

What more humble occupation than that of a canal driver, a rail 
splitter, a tanner, a tailor, a farmer, yet men occupying these humble 
positions have been elevated to the highest office in the gift of the 
nation and made presidents of the United States. What an incentive to 
laudable ambition! What a great land! What a great country! God 
bless it evermore. (Great applause.) 

The Chairman: When I started out to run this show, I told you we 
had the greatest aggregation of orators to be found anywhere, and I 
think you will all agree with me now. If you try to get in some time

to-morrow, when the business of the Encampmc^nt is going on, you 
will be more convinced of it than ever. 

Now then in this great State you know there was a command con- 
gregated and enlisted amounting to about fifteen thousand men, ever 
since the close of the war, known as the ^'Pennsylvania Reserves," I 
have been introduced and introduced to them. Now we have here to- 
night another of those Pennsylvania Reserves. I think I have shaken 
hands with about nineteen thousand of them; there were only fifteen 
thousand of them in the first place — ^we have a representative of that 
famous command here to-night, and I call upon Past Department Com- 
mander Levi McCauley, to speak for that organization. 

Past Department Commander McCauley, of West Chester, Pa.: Mr. 
Chairman, Comrades, ladies and gentlemen, the Pennsylvania Reserves 
da not need to have any apologies made for them; they were a unique 
organization, and did their duty with as little fuss as any organization 
placed in the field from this Commonwealth. Many of them were from 
this county — some part of this county. 

It is not necessary for me to say very much to the audience. I 
rather admire your patience during all this display of eloquence. 

You had an opportunity by the way to see one of the orphans from 
the Soldiers' Orphans' School. I have the honor— the distinguished 
honor to be on that commission; at times there has been some adverse 
criticism upon its management. I here to-night, as a member of that 
commission, invite you one and all to visit these schools and see for 
yourselves what we are doing for these children of our deceased Com- 
rades, and I might say that all these Comrades, Wagner, Beath, Stewart, 
Morrison, Sample, and all the men that have been connected with this 
system at one time or another, stand by the system, and will stand 
by it as long as there is a single orphan to educate and bring up pro- 
perly. Eighteen thousand of these children have been educated, and 
many of them have done great credit to the schools. We have made 
them stenographers, tailors, electrical engineers, that is of the boys, 
and we have educated and made good, honest mothers of the girls. We 
have not heard of more than ten or twelve of these children who have 
ever been haled before a court of quarter sessions for crime. 

As I have said, they have gone out into the world to take their places 
there and are a credit to this old Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Why, 
ladies and gentlemen, some of these boys have really gotten into the 
Legislature and really they do their work well. 

Some years ago four boys that were at the school at Jumonville in 
Fayette county, returned and called upon their old preceptor. Dr. 
Watts; I am credlly and truthfully informed that one of those boys was 
several times a millionaire and not one of them but whose checks would 
be honored for $25,000 in the town where he visited. Those are ex- 
treme examples, but we feel proud of them, just as we feel proud of 
beiUo here to-night, for, to my mind, the people of Reading believe 
in the city of Reading and have made it what it is by effort and energy;

therefore, I say to my Comrades, stand up for your town and your 
county and State, your Prehkknt, your God, and the flag. (Applause.) 

The Chairman: Just wait a moment and we will let you all go home. 
I understand that this amber stufC that they have here in Reading is a 
little stronger than it is in any other part of the State; a little of it 
wouldn't hurt you. I would like to drink about two kegs of it myself, 
but I want to say to the people of Reading, we are more than gratified 
with our reception, and with the beautiful decorations, and illumina- 
tion you have taken pains to prepare, and for the interest generally 
which you have shown in our behalf. 

Now gentlemen of the Ringgold Band, if ever you played in your 
life, let us hear you go now for all you are worth. 

The Ringgold Band then closed the campflre with the beautiful 
strains of Auld Lang Syne, as the audience passed out. 



THE PARADE. 



G. A. R. PARADE. A GREAT SPECTACLE ON CITY'S LEADING 
THOROUGHFARE. 



Nearly 3,000 Men in Line, Besides the Bands — ^War Veterans who 

Marched with Youthful Spirit, but whose Steps Show the 

Effects of Age — Organizations Participate from all 

Over Eastern Pennsylvania. 



[From the Rtading EagU^ Wedaesdaj, June 7.) 

The annual parade of the Grand Army of the Republic, Department 
of Pennsylvania, this morning, was a splendid spectacle. It was made 
up of many of the survivors of the Rebellion and other organizations, 
and was a great object lesson to the present generation. Between 2,500 
and 3,000 men and a dozen bands were in line, while scores of flags 
waved in the breeze. 

An Immense throng of people witnessed the great spectacle. Penn 
street was alive with humanity. 

When Abraham Lincoln called for soldiers during the early part of 
1861 these were the boys who responded. They were then in the bloom 
of youth and came from the store, shop and farm. 

That was 45 years ago. Great changes have occurred during the in- 
terval. Thousands who marched with Grant, Sheridan, Sherman and 
other great generals, and who participated in the bloodiest battles of 
the great Civil War, have gone to the great beyond.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 73 

But a remnant of the great armies of the Rebellion remains, and it 
was in evidence in Reading to-day. These men came from all parts of 
the State. Their step was steady, but age was depicted on almost every 
countenance. 

The boys of '61 are no longer classed among the youth. They have 
the spirit, but that same elestic step so familiar when commanded to 
charge the enemy is lacking. 

The demonstration was one of the most imposing ever seen in this 
city. Everybody was happy. As the veterans swept along the great 
thoroughfare, with their battle flags and other emblems flying, they were 
greeted with vociferous applause. 

As each Post passed the reviewing stand the men raised their caps 
and hats and saluted. The view from the windows of the big stores 
along Penn street was magnificent, and thousands of the youth of 
Reading were witnesses to a sight that will linger long in their memo- 
ries. 

With some of the old soldiers marched tots attired in military suits. 
They were probably their great-grandchildren, who have inherited the 
spirit from those who led them. 

One little fellow, probably six years of age, wore a blue suit and leg- 
gins and carried a gun at right shoulder shift. Others carried flags and 
all seemed gleeful. 

GOOD MARCHING WEATHER. 

The hard rain of the early morning made the prospects gloomy for a 
parade. The elements ceased falling around 8 o'clock and occasionally 
the clouds broke, emitting sunlight. But while it did not rain during 
the demonstration the sky hung heavy with clouds. The state of the 
weather, while not of the sunshiny, balmy kind that the old soldiers like 
for their annual parades, tempered the scorching heat of the past sev- 
eral days. It was good marching weather and did not detract in the 
least from the success of the affair. 

So that the weather might become more settled and to give posts ar- 
riving late an opportunity to get into line, the start of the demonstra- 
tion was 25 minutes after 9, the time set for the movement of the regi- 
ments of old soldiers, their offspring, wearing the uniform of the Sons 
of Veterans, and other organizations. Most of the visiting posts were 
here by 9 o'clock, but marched about Penn square before proceeding to 
the points of formation. The music and the flags, which floated proudly 
in the stiff breeze, had an exhilerating effect on the gathering spectators, 
who were dubious as to whether a procession would be held. 

LARGE TURNOUT A SURPRISE. 

The large turnout of paraders was a general surprise. The Committee 
of Arrangements hardly expected more than 2,000 in line. The weather 
indications reduced this estimate. That probably 3,000 veterans. State

Guardsmen, Sons of Veterans and musicians turned out was very 
gratifying to the committee. 

Immense throngs of people, possibly 15,000, were assembled along 
Reading's main thoroughfare, eagerly awaiting the head of the proces- 
sion that is a big event annually to the survivors of the Rebellion. The 
police preser\ed admirable order. Penn street was roped off and the 
mounted policemen — Stechler, H. Y. Miller, Kissinger, Mayer, Bowman, 
Machamer, M. Nicklas, Sloat and Smith — ^was an Innovation here. The 
crowds had proper respect for them and kept to the sidewalks. A 
number of the regular policemen and the 50 supernumeraries gave ex- 
cellent service. 

HEAD OF THE PARADE. 

Heading the procession were 16 policemen, with Third Sergt. Klee in 
command. They stepped with military precision, all abreast. 

Next came the Ringgold Band, 40 men, with Monroe. A. Althouse, 
wielding a baton, to the fore. The musicians, in their blue suits, with 
black braid, were eight abreast, the trombonists in the first row. Its 
music was superb. 

Following were Chief Marshal Milton A., Gherst, of Post 42, and his 
aides, Fred. M. Yeager, Jeremiah Seider, Wm. Dougherty, Matthias 
Moyer, F. S. Jacobs, Edward W. Alexander, Henry S. Babb, Robert 
McLean, Frank L. DeGour, Philip Bissinger and J. B. Potteiger, either 
in the uniform of the G. A. R. or the Sons of Veterans. They were on 
foot. 

Of the military organizations, Cos. A. and I, Fourth Regiment, N. G. 
P., had the right of way. Captain Allen, of Co. A, which had pre- 
cedence, had out 42 men and Co. I, Captain Koser, 38 men. They were 
in fatigue uniform, with rifles slung over their shoulders. Their dril- 
ling was a great feature and their marching was faultless. 

Next came the barouches with prominent G. A. R. men in State and 
Nation and local oflacials and veterans occupying them. In the first, 
drawn by two white horses, were General William W. Blackmar, head 
of the Grand Army of the Republic of the United States; General Louis 
Wagner, General Robert B. Beath and Lemon Buch, chairman of the 
Committee of Arrangements. In the second, also pulled by a pair of 
whites, were General Thomas J. Stewart, Major George Brown and 
Mayor Gerber. General J. P. S. Gobln was assigned to It, but did not 
appear. In the third, drawn by blacks, were General Gregg, and Past 
Department Commanders of Penn'a, George L. Brown and Thos. G. Sam- 
ple. These guests, especially Gen. Blackmar, attracted general atten- 
tion. 

SONS OF VETERANS. 

Meade Camp, No. 16, Sons of Veterans, and Its two companies, D. and 
E. were given a conspicuous place in the line, following the carriages. 
The marshal was William T. Monyer, and aides, Edwin Epstein, N. E. 
Deem, Andrew Schwelmler and Captain B. F. Hollenbach, Twenty mem-

bers of the Cadet Band followed, to the strains of which marched 75 
members of the camp in uniform and citizens clothes, and 50 members 
of Co. D, and that many of E, in charge of Captains Haines and Eisen- 
bise, respectively. They carried their guns and marched and drilled in 
great style. Visitors from Minersville and Pottsville, to the number of 
50, were in these ranks, and behind Co. E was Co. C. S. of V., of Lebanon, 
16 men, in full uniform. 

Succeeding the young "Vets" was McClean Post, No. 16, G. A. R., 
and never before did the members turn out in public in such strong 
numbers. First came the marshal. Senior Vice Commander Samuel 
Davis, as marshal, he taking the place of Commander Eisenhower, who 
is indisposed and was in the reviewing stand. Mahlon Shaaber, one of 
the tallest Civil War veterans in the country, was his aide. Twenty- 
five members of the Cadet Band were followed by the flag-bearers, Wil- 
liam Winn and Joseph Black. Thirty men were in the Post Guard, with 
Thomas Sassaman as captain. Following were row after row of McLean 
members in civic clothing. It was an immense turnout, possibly 250. 
Francis Yocum was color-bearer, and Mr. Sassaman captain. Their ap- 
pearance, and the fact that among them were a number of First De- 
fenders, provoked general hearty cheering. A feature that took thoughts 
back to the bloody Rebellion were the flags they carried, now in tatters. 

Department Commander John McNevin, of Altoona, and staff; past 
department commanders and the delegates to the convention, more than 
500 in all being in this division, were next in line. A magnificent de- 
partment flag — red silk with the country's flag and the G. A. R. badge 
beautifully worked on its folds, was held by George L. Baker, of Wayne. 
This was one of the largest divisions of the line. There were few that 
didn't wear at least three badges. One carried an immense bouquet tied 
with white satin ribbons. 

U. V. L. MAKES GOOD SHOWING. 

Union Veteran Legion, of Reading, 60 strong, was next in order, 
with Albert Flannagan, commanding. They made a good showing. 

The above-mentioned bodies had formed on Penn street, right resting 
on Third, the visiting Posts, which were assigned to south Third, right 
resting on Penn, swung into line. 

At their head was the pioneer post of the Commonwealth, Gen. Geo. 
B. Meade, No. 1, of Philadelphia, 35 of whose members, some gray- 
headed and others white-bearded, marched behind their commander, 
Samuel G. Diehl. Owen Jones carried a beautiful white flag, the Penn'a 
Reserve headquarters' colors, representing the Fifth Corps, connected 
with the Amy of the Potomac. Ellis Post, No. 6, of Germantown, had 
a delegation. 

Captain Walter S. Newhall Post, No. 7, of Philadelphia, had 50 mem- 
bers in line and a Post Guard of 16 members. Hugh McGrogan was 
commander. The Newhall Band, 15 pieces, furnished its music.

General Welsh Post, No. 118, Columbia, 25 men, T. C. Emmons, com- 
mander. 

John W. Jackson Post, No. 27, Philadelphia, 20 men. 

There were fully a score more of Posts represented, but they marched 
with other Posts which had bands. They included colored delegations 
from Philadelphia, Columbia and other places. 

Bringing up the rear of the procession was Keim Post, No. 76, of 
Reading, with the 46th Regiment Band, 25 pieces, of Reading, furnishing 
the music. This Post did well, mustang fully 150 men. James Gal- 
lagher was the commander. 

THE ROUTE. 

The route was up Penn to BYanklin, to Perkiomen avenue and coun- 
termarch down Penn. 

At sixth and Penn the Ringgold Band stopped in front of the- review- 
ing stand and played a lively air. The parade halted and the carriages 
proceeded to the reviewing stand where General Blackmar and the rest 
ascended to the stand. They were given an ovation by the crowd. The 
band marched back to the head of the parade and to a patriotic tune 
led the soldiers past the reviewing stand. Hats were doffed and the 
reviewing party was deeply impressed with the appearance, marching 
and general deportment of the men. The procession went out Fifth to 
Walnut, to Sixth and thence to the Academy of Music, where it dis- 
missed. 

Especially on Penn square, whidi was clear of all save the marchers 
and officers, did the pageant make an imposing picture. It thrilled the 
great masses of onlookers and caused their hearts to swell with pride 
as they gazed on the hundreds of "boys in blue" and flags and listened 
to the martial music. It was a sight that has not been seen in Read- 
ing in many years. The a^ed veterans, in the suits of blue, which they 
regard with almost reverence, were in their element, and to them it 
was one of the geat days of the year. The affair was splendidly man- 
aged. There wasn't a hitch and the spectacle goes down into the his- 
tory of the State Departments as one of its most memorable demonstra- 
tions.

im ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT 

DEPARTMENT OF PENNSYLVANIA, 

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC,

READING, PA., 



Academy of Music, Reading, Pa., 
Wednesday 10 A. M., June 7, 1905. 

The 39th Annual Encampment of the Department of Pennsylvania,

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, our Heavenly 
Father, we pray that Thou wouldst teach us how to pray and how to 
come into Thy presence this morning. Our hearts are filled with 
gratitude and praise to "Thee for the unnumbered mercies and bless- 
ings that have come to us, as this morning we gather in this hall and 
in this place and think of Thy love to us since we met in an Encamp- 
ment here twenty-five years ago. How many of our Comrades are 
spared to gather with us; where shall we find words adequate to ex- 
press our gratitude and praise to Thee.

80 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DBPT. OF PENNA., 

"Now, Lord, we pray that Thy blessing may also rest upon the 
families of our Comrades this morning who are sleeping the sleep of 
death, who have been mustered out, and as they think of this encamp- 
ment to-day, and as they read of it and the memories of their fathers 
come to them, and their hearts are sad, do Thou, O God, comfort them. 
Do Thou bless those of our Comrades who are sick, wounded or in 
sorrow; who would like to be with us and who. are with us in spirit 
this morning although absent in body. Help us who are privileged to 
be here, and may we so walk before Thee that we may bring honor 
to Thy name and to Thy cause. 

"We pray that Thou wouldst bless us in all our deliberations; grant 
that whatever is done here will redound to Thy glory and the good 
of our organization. We thank Thee for what Thou hast done for us. 
We pray that Thy blessing may continue to rest upon us. Bless we 
pray Thee all the officers of all the encampments, and those who are 
our leaders. O Lord God, bless them. O may they have wisdom 
from on high, and grant that all we do may be of such a character as to 
be acceptable to Thee. 

"May Thy blessing rest upon our land and nation and upon the Presi- 
dent of the United States and those associated with him in counsel 
and in administration, upon the Mayor of this city and all his friends 
who have given us such a cordial welcome. 

"Almighty God, we pray Thee to guide us all by Thine unerring 
counsel and hear us when we pray, 'Our Father who art in Heaven, 
hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth 
as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us 
our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us 
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the king- 
dom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen." 

Department Commander: The Assistant Adjutant General will now 
call the roll of officers and representatives of the Department. 

The Assistant Adjutant General: Commander, I move you that the 
call of the roll of Past Department Commanders and the representa- 
tives be dispensed with inasmuch as each member has a printed copy 
of the roll. 

Motion seconded by several comrades and agreed to.

Address of the Department Commander. 



Comrades: We, who while Uncle Sam's boys some forty years ago 
shared together the perils of a great war, and who have since been 
spared by a merciful Providence to meet again as veterans at our 
Thirty-ninth Annual Encampement in this beautiful and hospitable 
city owe a debt of gratitude to the Great Commander, which we here 
acknowledge, for the blessings of health, happiness and prosperity to 
us as individuals, and for His guiding care for our beloved country. 
In closing the term bf office to which I was elected a year ago, I wish 
to return thanks to comrades throughout the State who have helped 
to lighten my labors, and who have made my official duties pleasant 
and agreeable. No veteran can be more highly honored than to be 
chosen as your Department Commander, and, although I may not have 
measured up to the highest standard of efficiency, I fully appreciate 
the great trust reposed in me and have tried earnestly to uphold the 
principles and to promote the best interests of the Department. With 
this introduction and in observance of the usual custom I shall give a 
brief review of the work of the Department during the year. 



MEMBERSHIP. 

The report of the Assistant Adjutant General will show a slight de- 
crease in membership. Although some careless comrades have allowed 
themselves to be dropped from the rolls on account of their own de- 
linquencies, the greatest decrease was occasioned by death, a cause 
which will be more marked as the years go by, as one by one our com- 
rades are taken away, the younger generations will regard the sur- 
vivors with increased gratitude, respect and esteem, a thought which 
should induce every comrade to keep in good standing on the rolls. 



FINANCE. 

The report of the Assistant Quartermaster General will show that the 
finances of the Department are in an excellent condition. There have 
been some unusual expenses this year, among which, may be men- 
tioned the payment for the Stephenson Memorial, the painting and 
papering of Headquarters room, and the changes in heating. This last 
item, however, is expected to result in a future saving of our fuel bills.

136 a9TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

VISITATIONS. 

During the year I have attended many Post meetings. Reunions, 
County Grand Army Gatherings and Camp Fires in every part of the 
State, nearly always accompanied by Assistant Adjutant General Suy- 
dam and Past Department Commander Sample. On these visitations I 
have traveled over ten thousand miles. Everywhere I was" received 
with the most generous hospitality and true comradeship, and I found 
in all localities the same spirit of loyal devotion to our organization. 
Indeed, with a diminishing membership, which is to be expected and 
cannot be avoided, the feeling of pride in and affection for the princi- 
ples of Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty is steadily growing in the hearts 
of our Comrades. 

SONS OF VETERANS. 

This organization should receive the support of every comrade in the 
Department. The Sons of Veterans will be our successors, not to 
perpetuate the Grand Army of the Republic, but to have an organiza- 
tion of their own for carrying out the principles of our order. Eveipr 
Post in the Department should have a Camp as an auxiliary. Posts 
of small membership stand in special need of such support, for in some 
localities the Camps of Sons of Veterans not only provide rooms for 
the Posts, but also defray all other expenses. This fact alone should 
convince us that they are in earnest and deserve our recognition. 



WOMEN'S RELIEF CORPS. 

The Pennsylvania Memorial Home at Brookville, Jefferson County, 
is under the control of the Women's Relief Corps. The aged veteran 
and wife are admitted and cared for until death parts them. If the 
husband survives he is required by the rules of the Home to make ap- 
plication for admission to a Soldier's Home. I made an official visit to 
this Home and found the buildings well adapted for the purpose, the 
surroundings pleasant and homelike, the inmates contented and all 
their wants provided for. The comrades of the Grand Army of the 
Republic appreciate the good work done by these noble women, who 
are laboring so earnestly for the welfare of the aged people in their 
charge. 

LADIES OF THE G. A. R. 

The Home of the Ladies of the G. A. R. ia located at Hawkins Sta- 
tion on the Pennsylvania Railroad. The mother, widow, sister or 
daughter of the veteran is admitted and cared for during life. On a 
recent visit I was pleased to find it so pleasantly situated and well ar- 
ranged for the comfort of the occupants. No complaints were heard 
and this fact speaks well for those in charge. The managi&rs are to

be congratulated for their efforts in erecting and maintaining this 
splendid home for the dependent ones of our deceased comrades. 

The Home at Sixty-fifth and Vine streets, Philadelphia, is managed 
by the local members of the same organization. The veteran and his 
wife are here admitted and made comfortable. This Home is well 
built and thoroughly equipped for the purpose intended, and the com- 
pletion of the third story will afford accommodations for many who 
cannot now be provided for. 

The Board of Managers deserve credit for the manner in which the 
affairs of the Home are conducted, and the best thanks of our comrades 
are hereby tendered them. 

All of these Homes should be granted larger appropriations by our 
State, so as to enable them to improve their buildings and enlarge the 
charitable work in which they are engaged. 



PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIERS' AND SAILORS' HOME. 

This Home is located at Erie, Pa., and is under the management of 
eleven trustees, five of whom are to be comrades of the Grand Army 
of the Republic. It becomes the duty of the Department Commander 
each alternate year to appoint the comrades on this board. The term 
of the trustees expired in January last, and, believing that the m^age- 
ment of the Home was entirely satisfactory to the comrades of the 
Department, I reappoint Past Commanders-in-Chief Louis Wagner, R. 
B. Beath and Thos. J. Stewart, Past Department Commander H. H. 
Cummings and Comrade John P. Nicholson, of Post No. 19. 

The Home at Erie is a place where any soldier or sailor residing in 
Pennsylvania who is incapacitated from labor, can comfortably pass his 
declining years. I visited the Home recently and found everything pro- 
vided for the comfort, convenience and entertainment of the soldiers 
and sailors who are making their home there. The restraints pro- 
vided by the rules and regulations are mild, notwithstanding 'which, 
the discipline in the Home is perfect. 



THE SOLDIERS' ORPHANS' SCHOOLS. 

In accordance with the Act of Assembly creating a Commission for 
the management of the Soldiers' Orphans' Schools, five which shall be 
comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic and appointed by the 
Department Commander, on January 18th last, I recommended to the 
Governor for reappointment Past Department Commanders Thos. G. 
Sample, James F. Morrison and Levi G. McCauley, Comrades Richard 
H. Holgate, Post No. 30 and Thad M. Mahon, Post No. 309, and they 
were promptly confirmed. I made no change in the members appointed 
heretofore, as I was satisfied that by the careful and intelligent man- 
ner in which they had discharged the duties devolving upon them, and

the splendid progress made in the schools during their administration 
they were justly entitled to reappointment. There are three Soldiers' 
Orphans' Schools in the State; at Scotland, Franklin county, Chester 
bprings, Chester county, and Jumonville, Fayette county. The schol- 
ars at Jumonville and Chester Springs Schools remain till 14 years of 
age and are then transferred to the Scotland Industrial School, re- 
maining there until 16 years of age or 18 years of age (this being op- 
tional). During that time in addition to other studies the boys are 
given an insight to mechanical trades. I visited all of these schools 
and found them as reported by our Department Commanders, model 
institutions. Much credit is due to the Comrades of the Grand Army 
of the Republic for the interest manifested in their welfare and to the 
State (^t Pennsylvania for maintaining them. 

BOSTON. 

The Thirty-eighth Annual Encampment of the Grand Army of the 
Republic was held at Boston, Mass., during the week of August 15, 
1904. The Department of Pennsylvania can feel proud of the comrades 
who attended. Their soldierly appearance and splendid marching 
won for them the applause of. all who witnessed the grand parade. It 
affords me pleasure to report that a number of Past Department Com- 
manders were present, and with the representatives elected were prompt 
in their attendance at the sessions of the Encampment. 

MEMORIAL DAY. 

I take the liberty of repeating what has been said by my predecessor, 
that Memorial Day should not be observed as a holiday, but as a 
holy day, the growing practice of making it a day of sports and pleas- 
ures should be discouraged as much as possible. From reports received, 
the services incident to Memorial Day were properly observed in every 
community throughout the Department. The custom of holding ser- 
vices in memory of our departed comrades, and of strewing their 
graves with flowers should be perpetuated as long as the memory of 
their heroic deeds remain with the great Nation they helped to save. 

DEPARTMENT OFFICERS. 

Senior Vice Department Commander H. R. Brenneman, and Junior 
Vice Department Commander James L. Vose, have been active and 
energetic in the discharge of their respective duties. Comrade Brenne- 
man represented me at Sunbury when it was impossible for me to be 
present, and my thanks are due to him. 

Assistant Adjutant General Charles A. Suydam, is to be congratu- 
lated on the careful and eflacient manner in which he has discharged 
his duties. Devoting his entire time to the affairs of the ofllce is a 
sufficient guarantee that any information requested will be furnished

promptly. He accompanied me on many of my visits, and I am in- 
debted to him for visits he made in parts of the State, which I could 
not possibly make. 

Assistant Quartermaster General John L. Grim, has faithfully per- 
formed the duties of his office with honor to himself and for the best 
interests of the Department. He also accompanied me on some of my 
visits and his able and eloquent addresses were greatly appreciated by 
all who had the pleasure of hearing them. 

Department Inspector Alexander F. Nicholas is another Comrade who 
devotes a considerable portion of his time to the work of the Depart- 
ment, and he also accompanied me on some of my visitations. His re- 
port is prepared with great care and is commendable. It contains valu- 
able information and should be examined by the comrades. 

Judge Advocate D. J. Horner. The legal questions for his decision 
this year were but few in number which is very gratifying and is con- 
clusive that the comrades in the Posts are working in harmony. 

Chief Mustering Officer Charles O. Smith has performed the duties, 
of his office in a creditable manner and has made it one to be respected. 
The interest manifested by him in endeavoring to increase the mem- 
bership of the Sons of Veterans, is worthy of our commendation and it 
is hoped that good results will follow. 

Medical Director Dr. Alfred M. Smith, is a kind physician, a splendid 
comrade and one who takes great interest in the welfare of his com- 
rades. He is doing noble work for the Grand Army of the Republic 
in his own and adjoining counties. 

Department Chaplain John W. Sayers, has served so long and faith- 
fully in his office, that he is known to all the comrades throughout the 
Department. No word of mine can add to his splendid record as a 
Minister of the Gospel, or to the magnificient work he is doing for 
his comrades, and we sincerely hope that so long as the Department 
of Pennsylvania shall exist he will be our Chaplin. 

Chief of Staff John A. Hindman. In making this appointment it 
way my desire to reward a comrade for the excellent work done by 
him in Post No. 62. The manner in which he has discharged the 
duties satisfies me that he appreciates the honor. 

Comrades Charles Rodebaugh, H. T. Stanwood, Philip H. Fratz, Wil- 
liam H. Green and Jonas H. Dettre, members of the Council of Admin- 
istration, have performed their duties in an able and business-like 
way, having been punctual in attendance and exceedingly careful in the 
management of the funds of the Department. Their detailed report of 
the receipts and expenditures should be examined by the comrades. 
They are entitled to our thanks. 

John N. Reber, Clerk at Department Headquarters, by the careful 
manner in which he has attended to his duties and the courteous treat- 
ment accorded visitors has endeared himself to all.

THANKS. 

To the Department officers I am under many obligations for their 
loyalty and faithfulness in the discharge of every duty imposed upon 
them. They, as well as the Aids-de-Camp throughout the Department 
have done everything possible to make my administration successful. 
My thanks are specially due to Past Commanders-in-Chief Louis Wag- 
ner, R. B. Beath and Thos. J. Stewart for kind counsel and advice, to 
Past Department Commanders Thos. G. Sample and Edwin Walton for 
their courtesy and substantial assistance. Comrade Sample accom- 
panied me in my visitations, frequently responding to my call when 
hardly able physically to make the journey. It was only his indomita- 
ble will and untiring love for the Grand Army that made it possible 
for him to attend some of the reunions and camp fires. The mere an- 
nouncement that Comrade Sample would address the comrades was 
sufficient to insure a large and enthusiastic audience. They were 
always amply repaid by the eloquent manner in which he entertained 
them. His services to the Department can never be adequately repaid 
by his comrades. 

Conclusion. 

Comrades: I am soon to retire from the responsible position of De- 
partment Commander, to which I was chosen a year ago, to make way 
for my successor. No honor that can ever come to me will be so en- 
during; none can be so much appreciated. To have served as Comman- 
der of the great Department of Pennsylvania is not unworthy the am- 
bition of the most distinguished comrade, and to have served with such 
measure of success as to merit your respect and approbation is all I 
can hope for. I again thank every comrade. 

JNO. McNEVIN.

required. At most times, these have been of the most gratifying na- 
ture, in the ofllcial gatherings of comrades, cheered by the grand spirit 
of fraternity, brightening in its influence, as the order grows in inter- 
est with age. 

The peculiar social warmth of soldierly greeting, the memories in- 
voked, mellow as the falling season noted each year, on every side, 
in the garnering of the ripened fruits of our toils and sufferings, which 
closed in the field two score years ago. 

That so many of us, in the days of this new century, meet to give 
free course, to the kindly fraternity, born of those days of trial in the 
heroic past, is gratifying to us as survivers, and inspires a just pride in 
the fact, trat we contributed largely to the history which the genera- 
tions to come will cherish, and whose lessons are graven by us on its 
most stirring pages forever. 

We haVe set the pace in our services for the later soldiers of the Re- 
public, which they will ever strive to emulate in standard, as the duty 
our country expects of them. While pleasant greetings, valued asso- 
ciations, and cordial good feeling form the spirit of our martial assem- 
blies, there are times when the strongest demands of duty hold us to 
the tasks official life presents, as the graver features of a soldier's lot, 
that set aside all others, and call for the rugged qualities that* bring 
results through sacrifice. 

That the teachings of our order and the training of our lives have 
set stern duty above all choice, as times demand, have largely made 
us the strong characters that stand peculiarly, as types of the soldier 
of the Sixties. That our citizens have heartily acknowledged these 
features, in times of impending stress in public affairs, as they tum- 
toward the veterans for loyal strength and counsel, is a tribute to the 
manhood which those days of struggle have developed in the fibre of 
our natures, virtues recognized whenever manly duty, in any emer- 
gency, must be undoubted, in leading public opinion. 

I do not raise too high the standard for the veteran, always modest 
in his claims to credit among his fellows. I state the facts as observed 
in our relations toward the body of our people, whose traditions are not 
our own and who cherish more strongly, as days go by, the memories, 
the grand results for humanity, of a service, that taught us first, un- 
selfish devotion and fortitude in all affairs, which has set us apart for 
Honor among all men. As V,his regard is realized in full by ourselves, 
perhaps somewhat slowly, does its influence not strengthen our resolu- 
tion, to live up to the grand character, in which our countrymen have 
set our deserving; to jealously regard our reputation, as a class unique 
in this Republic, as citizen soldiers who have achieved distinction 
among those of every age, who have kept the faith and been found 
worthy. 

Among the bright days of summer visits passed, that of the Grand

Army Association, comprising the Posts of Philadelphia and vicinity, 
August 10, at Willow Grove Park, was one of especial interest, in its 
magnitude and fine features of entertainment. 

An outing for the comrades and their families, attended in large num- 
bers and enlivened by the presence of all Past National and Department 
Officers within reach, with full dress parade and review, rare music and 
campfire exercises in the grand pavilion of the park, attractive enough 
to hold the assembly through the storm and thunder peals of a summer 
night, until a late hour and the special car service to the city, left 
an impression of arrangement and plan worth going far to realize. 

Visits to Posts at inspection, installation of officers and entertain- 
ment have been made, as far as opportunity offered and all efforts 
given toward the good of our organization. 

The reunion of the Central G. A. R. Association of Pennsylvania 
at Lancaster, in October last, was in numbers and spirit, the most suc- 
cessful in its history. The officers and past officers of the Department 
were largely in attendance, including reception, parade, dedication 
of a new soldiers' lot in Greenwood, purcnased by the county commis- 
sioners, afternoon and evening campfires, it contributed much toward 
the interests of the Association and the Department, and was signi- 
ficant. in its public influence. 

Representing the Department at a flag presentation to Rest No. 355 
at Sunbury, by the Women's Relief Corps, in December last, followed 
by a reception, held at the court house, the President, Mrs. Estelle Hall 
of the Women's Relief Corps of Pennsylvania, being present and taking 
part, accompanied by comrades from Wilkes-Barre, the fine social care 
of the comrades remains a kindly recollection and the spirit of the 
affair is warmly recognized. 

On January 6, of this year I installed the officers of Post 84, Lan- 
caster, and have given my best offices to their local work, acting as 
chairman of the Memorial Day Committee, in preparation for the ex- 
ercises of May 30. 

In pursuance of this work, our committees made personal visits to 
the public and parochial schools of Lancaster, addressing them on the 
history of the war and securing their aid in the Patriotic duty of 
gathering flowers and placing on the graves of soldiers in our ceme- 
teries. 

This has been, in marked degree, popular and is anticipated yearly 
by the schools with much pleasure and cordial co-operation. We are 
implanting patriotic feeling in the youthful citizens of the future, 
which is growing into flourishing public sentiment, which we trust 
will bear fruit in reverent observance of Memorial Ceremonies, long 
after the veterans, who now conduct the children in their work, have 
been gathered to their rest, their marshalling assemblies of springtime 
remain only as fragrant memories of blue clad comrades, fatherly at- 
tentions to the boys and girls and flowers, that bloom and sweeten

life breathe, with each perfume, a new lesson of undying patriotism and 
reverent regard to perserve what the past has achieved for future ages, 
to our beloved country. 

As mingled pride and tender sentiment is cultivated, in leading the 
young in a work whose doing is looked for as a keen joy, their hearts 
can be trusted to hold the seed now sown, to bloom in cherished cus- 
tom in days to come, to guard the memory of the vanished host in 
blue, that saved our grand Republic. 

A late success in the work of the Department may be referred to, 
for the personal graitfication it brings, in a very ordinary line. 

A local Post of colored comrades, after some years existence, had 
fallen into decay, and virtually had no organization, the matter of at- 
tempting to infuse new life into the Post was referred to me by the 
Department Commander. After many weeks of persistent effort the 
comrades were gotten together, and I have the pleasure of announcing 
there is every indication that the Post will take on a new lease of life, 
it is their intention to ask for a change of location, which in my judg- 
ment "vnll be for the best interests of the membersaip. 

Approaching the close of our term, I heartily acknowledge the kind 
and cordial consideration, which has marked all official intercourse 
in the Department and extend to the Administration my congratula- 
tions in success and bear to the comrades under its command my best 
wishes for the success of the work in the coming year, in whose ap- 
proved results we all may share in satisfaction and draw closer the 
bonds of our fellowship. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. R. BRENEMAN, 
Senior Vice Department Commander.

144 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

While the duties of Junior Vice Commander are not very exacting, 
I fully appreciate the fact that one in this position has an influence 
that should be used to further the grand objects of our Association. 
And I can say that I have, so far as I have opportunity, used my in- 
fluence for the good of the order. While owing to unavoidable cir- 
cumstances I have been unable to attend all calls that I have received 
from comrades, I take this opportunity of giving them my thanks 
for the many courtesies extended to me. 

I have visited a number of neighboring Posts and have assisted at 
the installation of oflicers of some of them, and I flnd the interest in 
my district to be unabated. 

In my visits to the Posts I have urged public installations, as I 
think this is a great help, bringing us more in touch with each other 
and creating- an interest in the order. 

I have also urged a more general observance of Memorial Day, real- 
izing that each succeeding year means more graves of comrades to 
strew with flowers and fewer comrades to strew them. And we should 
try to impress upon the minds of the coming generation the fact that 
they will have to take up the work when we lay it down. 

Again I desire to extend my sincere thanks to all the officers and 
comrades of the Department of Pennsylvania Grand Army of the Re- 
public for the kindness shown during my term of office and I assure 
them their memories will long be cherished. 

I am fraternally yours, 

JAMES L. VOSE. 
Junior Vice Department Commander.

During the year the calls to camp fires, anniversaries, reunions, 
etc., have been of a numerous character, and I have responded as 
often as possible, finding the same genial companionship everywhere 
that has characterized these gatherings in past years; in my opinion 
there is nothing that keeps up the interest more than these annual 
outings, it has been a matter of sincerce regret that on many occa- 
sions (owing to ill health) I was not able to. join my comrades when 
expected. 

I regret that it is again my duty to call attention to the delin- 
quency of Post Commanders, in neglecting to forward the semi-annual 
reports when due, necessitating the writing of several letters calling 
attention to their carelessness, which causes delay in forwarding the 
reports to National Headquarters that is certainly vexatious. 

The room occupied as an oflSce for these headquarters, had become 
so dingy in appearance for the want of paint and paper, that the Coun- 
cil of Administration thought it advisable that the same be placed in 
shape to present a good appearance, and with your approval this was 
done, and as a result we now have a headquarters, neat and cleanly in 
appearance of which we have no reasons to apologize as had formerly 
been the case. 

The Department still continues to hold its record for discipline and 
eflaciency, in all that pertains to the welfare of the comrades. We can- 
not expect to increase our membership to any great extent, other than 
from the dropped or suspended list, as those that have remainded out- 
side the ranks all these years, cannot be prevailed upon to unite with 
us except in a few instances, death of comrades make vacancies that 
cannot be filled, as this loss is coming to us with great frequency, our 
ranks are necessarily being depleted beyond the point that can be 
covered by any increase in membership. 

On February 1st last I wrote to L. P. Farmer, Commissioner of the 
*'Trunk Line Association," requesting that he would furnish the '*rate 
of fare from points in Pennsylvania, to the Encampment to be held 
at Reading in June next," on February 15, I was advised that the rate 
would be "fare and one-third." I then took up the matter twice after- 
ward with the Commissioner, respectfully asking that the Association 
reopen the question with a view to according a rate of "one fare," but 
the answer in both cases was that "they deem it inexpedient to make 
any further concession than fare and one-third". 

Attention is called to the fact that, at the sessions of the Department 
Encampment comrades present resolutions calling for action at the 
coming National Encampment of measures relating to pensions, etc.,

some of which were pending in the Congress of the United States. The 
committee to whom such resolutions are referred refer them to the 
Encampment with the recommendation that the comrades so interested 
should furnish copies of said bill, or bills to the Representatives elect, 
for their information, this they neglect to do, and as a result the mat- 
ter cannot be intelligently acted upon when the Representatives meet 
for deliberation. 

Appended hereto is Exhibit A, giving the gains and losses from De- 
cember 31, 1903. to December 31, 1904, also Exhibit B, giving the num- 
ber of Posts, together with the membership at the close of each year 
from 1867 to 1904, both years inclusive. 

I take this opportunity to express my appreciation of the honor you 
conferred upon me one year ago, by selecting me as Assistant Adjutant 
General, I leave to you to say if I have come up to your expectations 
in the discharge of the duty incumbent upon me. I have endeavored to 
be prompt, courteous and fair in the performance of my line of duty, 
and so far as my best thought and effort could suggest to advance the 
interests of the Department 

At this the close of our very pleasant official relations, I desire to 
express the wish that we may both be preserved to many years of life, 
and a continuance of these pleasant personal associations. 

To my associates of the Staff, and the many comrades of the Depart- 
ment whose fraternal kindness has done so much to lighten the work 
in which I have been engaged, my most sincere thanks are due and 
hereby extended. 

Fraternally yours, 

CHARLES A. SUYDAM, 
Assistant Adjutant General.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 155 



Report of the Assistant Quartermaster General. 



Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
S. W. Cor. 5tli & Chestnut Sts., 
Philadelphia, May 18, 1905. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: I have the honor to submit this, my second annual report 
from May 14, 1904, to May 12, 1905. You will note that my last report 
of May 12, 1904, the balance was $11,379.01 and my present report is 
$11,551.12 showing an increase of $172.11 over my last report. This is 
especially gratifying from the fact we have gone to some extra ex- 
pense in the way of repairs and improvements to the Headquarter 
rooms, and made a donation of $250.00 to the "Stevenson Monument," 
and changed the system of steam heating which will make a saving of 
two hundred dollars a year on coal. 

In accordance with the approval of the Department Encampment 
last year under my suggestion in last report, a committee comprising 
Assistant Adjutant General Suydam and myself, by direction of the 
Council of Administration, were directed to invest ten thousand dol- 
lars of our balance on hand in bonds in U. S. or bonds of the city 
of Philadelphia. After a thorough search, we recommended, and were 
directed by the Council of Administration to purchase city of Philadel- 
phia bonds as follows: 

Number 44, loan of 1893, $5,000 00 

Number 52, loan of 1893, 2,000 00 

Number 53, loan of 1893, 2.000 00 

Number 583, loan of 1898, 1,000 00 

The first three bonds are series J and the last series E. They all 
expire and fall due in 1912 and pay three per cent, clear. While the 
face value is $10,000, we were able to purchase, the bonds complete for 
$9,812.50, saving $187.50 in the purchase, and increasing our revenue 
$100.00 a year in interest and $23.43 a year increase in value. The 
bonds are now in a box in the vault of the Finance Company of Phila- 
delphia, and it can only be opened in the presence of two of the fol- 
lowing: the Assistant Adjutant General, the Assistant Quartermaster 
General and the chairman of the Council of Administration. 

I can with pleasure report we have to-day in city bonds, par value, 
$10,000.00; balance in Third National Bank, Philadelphia, May 12, 
11,788.62.

156 39THj ANNUAL ENCAMPMEJNT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

U gives me great pleaure to commend Adjutant General Suydam, In- 
spector Alexander Nicholas and the members of the Council of Ad- 
ministration for their prompt attendance at all meetings during the 
year. It is our pride that almost without exception, as the minutes 
will show, each one answered the roll call, and their whole purpose 
was to carefully guard the treasury and serve with fidelity in the office 
you intrusted to their charge. All the other officers were so far away 
that we did not look for their attendance. 

I have visited in conjunction with the Commander, Assistant Ad- 
jutant General Suydam, the Inspector and other members of the Staff, 
thirty-four Posts in the city and State, four reunions of regiments, five 
reunions of combined Posts, two erections of monuments, four Sons 
of Veterans Camps and one reunion Sons of Veterans, forty-three re- 
ligious meetings of veterans and their wives, and to the best of my 
ability, I have tried to speak a word of encouragement at each meeting. 

I have also spoken to five gatherings of school children and at three 
flag raisings. I also spoke at the State Encampment of Delaware. To 
all these I have tried to hold aloft the old stars and stripes, what they 
cost and what they mean. 

In closing my term as A. Q. M. General, I wish to return my thanks 
to the Commander, yourself, his Staff, the Council of Administration 
and the comrades in general for their endearing and fraternal com- 
radeship, and while it has taken time and expense and often late hours 
at night, all without cost to the Department, I can only say that noth- 
ing less than my duty to God has been a great pleasure, and will be 
held in memory's sunshine until the reassembling across the river of 
time and eternity. 

Appended hereto are abstracts I to VII, showing in detail the busi- 
ness of my office during the fiscal year. 

Yours in F. C. & L., 

JOHN L. GRIM, 
Assistant Quartermaster General.

Headquarters Department of Pennsylvania,

consideration) will show that the same interest is being taken to ad- 
vance the interests of the Grand Army as ever before, quite a large 
number of the Posts have increased their membership, not only in hav- 
ing suspended members renew their allegience, but in many instances 
securing comrades who have never been members of our order. Quite 
a number of Posts have recruiting committees who are always at 
work, atnd they deserve great credit for the able manner in which 
they have performed their duties. 

Inspection night, as usual, is the banner night of the year in re- 
spect to attendance, many comrades travelling eight and ten miles to 
be present One report of an Assistant Inspector which shows the in- 
terest manifested, reported every member of the Post present but one, 
and that comrade was eighty-three years of age and at home sick. 
Surely we should be greatly pleased at this time of life to see the in- 
terest still being retained by our comrades. 

Too much praise cannot be given to the Assistant Inspectors at Large 
and the Assistant Inspectors for their very valuable assistance at all 
times in making this report so complete. 

To Department Commander John McNevin I return my sincere thanks 
for the honor conferred in selecting me as a member of his Staft, and 
to yourself personally I extend my thanks for valuable assistance and 
many courtesies shown during the year. 

Fraternally yours, 

ALEXANDER F. NICHOLAS, 
Department Inspector.

196 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 



Report of Judgre Advocate. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of Judge Advocate, 
Somerset, May 3, 1905. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: I have the honor to submit my report for the year now 
about to end, my duties have not been of an arduous character, not be- 
ing called upon for a single decision, this in itself is a cause for con- 
gratulation evincing as it does, the fraternal comradeship and intelli 
gent comprehension of the laws of our organization, that enables the 
solution of questions, without the aid of the Judge Advocate. 

To me personally the year has been one of great pleasure, I have 
attended many camp fires, county and regimental reunions, at which 
the renewal of old acquaintances and the forming of new ones, has 
strengthened ties that I trust may not soon be broken. May the peace 
and harmony that pervades the Department continue to the end. 

Appreciating thie honor conferred by the appointment that came to 
me, and thanking the Department Commander for the same alsc* to 
you and my associates of the Staff, for many courtesies extended I am 

Yours in F. C. & L.,

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 197 



Report of Hedieal Director. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of the Medical Director, 
Beaver Springs, May 20, 1905. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: The office of Medical Director having by action of Na- 
tional Encampment, been made one of honor only, and no report be- 
ing expected of that officer, yet I deem it but just that I should say a 
word or two to the Department of Pennsylvania. 

During the year now closing I have kept in touch with my comrades 
in this locality particularly, having attended many gatherings of the 
Grand Army, and did what I could to encourage my comrades, to ad- 
vance and strengthen the Department. 

I have attended many comrades in sickness, and in no case has a 
bill for services been presented, the fact that I have been able to re- 
lieve them in their distress was sufficient compensation. 

In this connection I desire to say that I will be in attendance at the 
coming Department Encampment, to be held at Reading, should any 
of the Comrades be so unfortunate as to be taken with illness, I will 
readily respond to any calls that may be made upon me, at the Man- 
sion House. 

Thanking the Department Commander for the honor that came to 
me by this appointment, to yourself for courtesies received, and my 
comrades throughout the Department for their many fraternal greet- 
ings, I remain. 

Yours in F. C. & L, 

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

198 39TH ANNUAL. ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 



Report of Department Chaplain. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the Republic, 
Office of the Chaplain, 
Chester, May 27, 1905. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: I have the honor to submit my thirty-third annual report 
as Chaplain of the Department of Pennsylvania. 

My duties, during the year, have called me with increasing fre- 
quency to the house of mourning, when the last roll has been answered 
by some comrade to whom death had given his final discharge. I have 
visited many of the sick; have preached funeral sermons at the ob- 
sequies of many and paid the last tribute of respect to many who fol 
lowed the flag, between 1861 and 1865 but who have gone over to the 
other shore. 

As it has been my duty, so has it been my pleasure, to attend many 
camp fires and reunions; my church duties alone prevented me from 
a more extended participation in the gatherings of the comrades. On 
Memorial Day, a year ago, I had the pleasure and honor of delivering 
the address for General R. L. Bodine Post, No. 306, at Doylestown. The 
reports from Post Chaplains during the year showed that, in the De- 
partment of Pennsylvania, the attendance at religious services on the 
Sabbath preceding Memorial Day was universal and that great inter- 
est was manifested everywhere over that feature of our sacred services. 
These reports show too that in the twelve months, 1,005 comrades have 
been mustered out by death; some of them have been prominent at 
our Encampments for years — ^we have now only their memories. We 
miss their faces to-day; each year the number of the missing increases — 
our ranks are rapidly thinning; but few years will elapse before the 
book will be closed and the Grand Army of the Republic, made of the 
brave and true men who followed the fiag of their country, from 1861 
to 1865, shall live only in history. But what a glorious history it is; 
an untarnished fiag, a reunited country, recognized as a world power 
by all nations of the earth; this recognition and this power made possi- 
ble by the valor and sacrifies of the men composing our great organi- 
zation; men who represented the manhood, integrity and patriotism of 
the American people. In the ranks of the great armies of America 
and among the men who trod the decks of ships of war of our gallant

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 199 

Navy were thousands of men who since the day of Appomattox, have 
graced every position in civil life; men who have achieved the highest 
honors in the fields of literature and science; men who have wisely 
controlled railroad, banking and other great corporations, men whose 
learning has honored the judicial ermine and whose eloquence has 
charmed the multitudes, men whose statemanship has shaped the 
policy and controlled the destinies of our country. All honor to 
America's volunteer soldier and sailor. 

I want to acknowledge my indebtedness to Department Commander 
McNevin and yourself for many courtesies extended me and to thank 
the Post Chaplains who have so faithfully performed their duties in 
making their reports, and to all my comrades my sincere appreciation 
and thanks go out for the splendid fraternity and magnificent evidences 
of comradeship that have come to me, from them, during all these 
years. 

Yours in Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty, 

J. W. Sayers, 
Department Chaplain.

200 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 



Report of Chief Husteringr OflBeer. 



Department of Pennsylvania, 
Grand Army of the R^ublic, 
Office of Chief Mustering Officer, 
Pittsburg, Pa., May 8, 1905. 

Charles A. Suydam, Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: In submitting my report for the current year, I beg leave to 
say that I have kept no record of my work and, tfierefore will not at- 
tempt to make a detailed report. 

It has been my pleasure, during the year, as a member of the Staff 
of the Department Commander, and occsasionally as his personal rep- 
resentative, to attend numerous regimental reunions and Grand Army 
functions, such as camp fires, banquets. Post Memorials, inspections, 
installations, and G. A. R. Association meetings. 

I accompanied the Commander on his visit to the Memorial Home 
at Brookville and the Ladies of the G. A. R. Home at Hawkins. I also 
visited the Soldiers' Home at Erie, and was present at the National 
encampment in Boston. 

I have visited many G. A. R. Posts and Camps of the Sons of Veterans, 
everywhere receiving courteous treatment, and shown true comradship 
— that comradship which with each succeeding year — as our ranks 
grow thinner, our hair grayer, and our eyes dimmer, brings us closer 
together and becomes more sacred. Naturally all work in the Grand 
Army at this time carries with it a tinge of sadness — yet there is much 
to cheer and make glad the hearts of the comrades. 

The duties of my office have been light and the opportunities I 
have had to see and mingle with my comrades have afforded me the 
greatest pleasure. My thanks are due and heartily given, to Com- 
mander McNevin for my appointment and his many kindnesses; to 
my brother members of his Staff for their good comradeship, and to you 
personally for favors and assistance rendered.. 

Yours fraternally, 

CHARLES O. SMITH, 
Chief Mustering Officer.

many courtesies extended to me, and the Department Commander for

attention was given to al Imatters presented, for the details, of which 
attention is called to the minutes of the Council, and the disburse- 
ments as reported by the Assistant Quartermaster General. 

The rooms occupied at Headquarters for the transaction of the busi- 
ness of the Department have been neatly painted and papered which 
was badly needed after the many years of occupancy, the rooms oc- 
cupied for purposes of the Board of Trustees of the Soldiers' and Sai- 
lors' Home, and the Soldiers' Orphan Commission, are now in the 
process of renovation, after this is completed we believe that the opin- 
ion will be expressed that this ought to have been attended to long 
ago. 

In accordance with the action of the Thirty-eighth Department En- 
campment, two hundred and fifty dollars ($260.00) was voted by the 
Council to the "Stephenson Memorial Fund" this amount with the 
cost of painting and papering Headquarters, $91.65, were extraordinary 
expenses, were it not for that fact the receipts over expenses would 
have been $513.16. 

The rules that have been in existence for a number of years relative 
to the conducting of the business of the Council were adhered to, and 
we recommend to our successors a continuance of this mode for the 
transaction of the business for which the Council is elected. 

Fraternally yours,

The Department Commander: It is hoped that the Comrades named 
on the respective committees will attend to their duties promptly, 
in order to expedite the work of the encampment. 

Past Dpartment Commander Sample: Commander, there are pro- 
bably more members in the Encampment now than there will be either 
immediately following the noon hour, or just before we adjourn, and 
I move you, sir, that all those who desire to nominate candidates for 
the National Encampment will write the name. upon a card and place it 
in the box in order that they may be placed in the hands of the printer 
immediately following the adjournment. 

I make this motion at this hour for the reason that there has been 
more or less complaint in regard to the matter of the names of dele- 
gates, and the vote not being known before the adjournment. We are 
all here now, and every man that desires to nominate a Comrade, can do 
so, and also the members of the Council of Administration, as that is 
another ticket that has to be printed this afternoon. 

The Department Commander appointed Asst. Quartermaster Gen- 
eral Grim to take up the cards nominating Comrades as delegates to 
the National Encampment for one aisle, and Chief Mustering Officer 
Charles O. Smith for the other aisle. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: Department Commander, those 
of us who were present at the campfire last night are aware of the 
fact that the Commander-in-Chief is with us in Reading. He has 
honored the encampment with an official visit this morning, and I have 
great pleasure in presenting him to you. 

As the Commander-in-Chief stepped forward upon the platform, he 
was duly saluted at the command of the Department Commander. 

The Department Commander: Our Commander-in-Chief needs no 
introduction at my hands. Those who heard him last night were 
greatly pleased, and we welcome him to our Encampment. 

Commander-in-Chief Blackmar: Department Comftiander and my 
dear old Comrades of Pennsylvania, representing as you do all the

228 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Comrades of this magnificent Department, I am pleased to greet you. 
I know how busy you are; I know what a close contest is on for the next 
Department Commander, and I do not propose to detain you with a 
long speech, for I want to retain, as I believe I hold, your love; it is 
a sacred thing to hold the love of our Comrades of the War of the 
Rebellion in this great organization, the finest organization in the 
world. (Applause.) 

If 1 ever had any doubt of this statement, it has been borne in upon 
me during the last few months as I have traveled all over this great 
country of ours. The men who established the Grand Army of the 
Republic wisely chose that the organization should die with us. There 
is no way to recruit it. We are going down the western slope together, 
my Comrades, and after us it will be only a memory. I used to doubt 
the wisdom of having it die with us, but it has come upon me with the 
greatest possible force that it is best that it should be the most unique 
organization ever known, dying with the men who, upon the battle- 
fields of the Republic earned the right to be among its members. 

I bring to you the greeting of the 250,000 still living and active in our 
ranks throughout this country, and I know without a vote from you, 
that I may assume the right to bear your greetings to our Comrades 
to-morrow in Ohio, and on then to Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, New 
York — all the great Departments I shall visit within the next few weeks. 
1 v/ill bear your greetings, your loving greetings to these men, our 
Comrades, in the other Departments. 

I am impressed beyond measure, and I would not speak longer if it 
were not that I feel it my duty as well as^my pleasure to express to you 
how I am rejoicing and have been rejoiced by the magnificent recep- 
tion we have received here in this beautiful city of Reading. 

Comrades, you are doing God's work, because you are doing the 
work of your country in this being an object lesson to the citizens in 
this beautiful city, and all the surrounding country that stood six to 
ten deep on the sidewalk as we passed by to-day. The public schools 
adjourned; the children were there to meet and greet you; the shops and 
stores were shut up; it was the greatest possible object lesson that 
could possibly be given to the citizens of this community, as they saw 
the old veterans pass by, and to have the children asked and have it 
answered, why are they thus organized? Why are they thus received? 
Why is this honor paid them? They will remember it as they never 
would remember what they read in books, so that I say you are doing 
great work in inculcating the lessons of patriotism among the children, 
the little plastic minds, the pure, white souls, are the garden spots 
upon which we and our allied organizations must work and plant the 
seed that it may bear that splendid fruit of patriotism in years to 
come. 

My Comrades^ it is a perfect delight to meet with you here, and more 
than that, I jcan truly say that in almost every Department that I hdve 
had the honor to visit, I have met with a splendid reception; there have

been some of the greatest turnouts away out in the West, away out in 
Ogden, Utah, where the children were gathered under their teachers and 
filled a great, big park, and each one had a flag. That was something 
delightful to see and to remember. One of the little children asked, 
"What* does this mean? What is the Grand Army?" His father 
looked up to our faces, and positively blushed that his child, eight or 
ten years of age, should have to ask such a question. It showed that he 
hadn't taught him as he should, and it was perfectly apparent that 
that little boy will never have to ask that question again, and with 
thousands and thousands of children, the lessons that we are teaching 
them as we go along, will last forever and forever, and we may be sure 
that the generation to whom we are going to bequeath thlfe magnificent 
Republic, that we have kept united, kept one, the children will look to 
it that it is kept one; that it is kept above question; that it is in every 
possible way worthy of the men who saved it from destruction and 
kept it from annihilation during the great struggle between '61 and '65. 

My Comrades, it is a great honor, as my honored predecessors will 
assure you, to hold this position of Commander-in-Chief. We are re- 
ceived everywhere with the greatest respect, with the greatest 
love, with the greatest interest, and although it is a very hard billet, 
and we have to work mighty hard during the year we hold it, earning 
our salary many times over, still we are glad to do it, and being in the 
work, we are glad to continue it, for the reward is great, is mighty. 

I left a sick bed only a few weeks ago and started on this great trip. 
I had really been very ill; I had worked so hard on the office matters 
that I was sick, and lying there very ill, but I was determined to start, 
and I did so, accompanied by Past Commander-in-Chief Wagner and 
Beath and the ubiquitous Suydam. We started in at the little city of 
Wilmington, Delaware, and I began to get better and better. Now why 
do I mention this? I mention it because when I get an opportunity to 
get hold of my doctor I am going to ask him why in the name of 
Heaven he kept me in bed so long, when he should have had me up 
and dressed and going out to greet the men that rode with me and rode 
side by side with me, that everywhere have greeted me with love and 
respect, and I say and think that has made we well and strong again. 

I thank you for this reception, for this opportunity to be with you 
at your Department Encampment. I bid you God-speed and wish you 
every possible success, and my Comrades, the last word I will say to you 
is, hold up your organization; if you feel sometimes that you are not 
appreciated, remember who you are; the Comrades of Lincoln, of Grant, 
of Sherman and of Sheridan; remember that you stand among the 
mighty men of the world, the protectors and saviours of a nation. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: Department Commander and 
Comrades, three years ago the National Encampment appointed a com- 
mittee to collect funds for the erection of the Stephenson monument 
as a Grand Army Memorial in the city of Washington. The committee

230 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMEINT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

has designated for the occupancy of this memorial a grand plot just 
across from Pennsylvania Avenue, a magnificent location, and we have 
been endeavoring for the past three years to secure sufficient funds for 
the erection of this memorial. You will be interested to know that the 
largest contribution from any of the Departments has come from Penn- 
sylvania. The first year we received from twenty-four Posts $194.15 
and from ten individuals |100. The second year we received from 
fifty-two Posts 1589.25 and during the past year I will give you the con- 
tributions received in detail. You will see that out of the 520 Posts in 
this Department, we have received contributions from only eighty-two 
Posts and from individual members we have received contributions 
from fourteen. 

Now there should be, notwithstanding the fact that the contributions 
from our Department have been larger than from any other Department, 
there should be a record f ron> every Post, no matter how small the sum, 
in connection with the list of Posts contributing for this purpose. 

The Grand Army is passing away but this memorial which is to - 
cost $20,000 will remain forever as a reminder and remembrance after 
we have departed this life. The suggestion was that if each member of 
the Grand Army would contribute ten cents, there would be sufficient 
funds to pi^oduce the sum needed for the work. 

You can readily see that eighty-two Posts have contributed less than 
$700 and I am sure that those of us representing Posts in this Encamp- 
ment to-day, ought to go home and I trust we will go home to see that 
if our particular Post has already contributed, that the contribution 
will he repeated, or if it has not yet made a contribution, the contribu- 
tion will be promptly sent to me as treasurer. We have in actual 
cash some $10,000. The contributions received during the past year, 
were from Post 28, $10.00; Post 80, $10.25; Post 100, $15.00; Post 117, 
$1.10; Post 151, $5.40; Post 378, $5.65; totaling the sum of $47.40 re- 
ceived from Posts of this Department during the past year. From in- 
dividuals we have received the following contributions: Robert B. Beath, 
$25.00; H. H. Cumings, $50; Comrade Burchfield, $100.00; Louis Wag- 
ner, $100.00; Past Department Commander Miller, $1,000.00. (Applause.) 

Now can't I say to every comrade present, go thou and do likewise. 
If you can't give a thousand, you can give a smaller sum, but I tell you, 
Comrades, we ought to feel a personal pride in being represented upon 
the roll of men and of Posts who will make this memorial possible, 
and I trust that our committee will hear promptly from individuals 
either in their own name or representing their Posts, the amount they 
will contribute towards this laudable and proper object. 

Past Department Commander Miller: There is no time like the pres- 
ent time; the best way to take up a collection is when you have the 
people present. I want to say to Comrade Wagner that we don't want 
to be selfish, because this is a matter that every Comrade should be 
permitted to have the pleasure of contributing something for the fund, 
tnerefore I want to say as representing Post 220, we will contribute if

you will let us, twenty-five cents each instead of ten; we are a little 
selfish out there, and we would like to have your permission to make 
it twenty-five cents for each member. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: You have 500 members I 
believe; that would give us $125.00. 

Past Department Commander Miller: Well, we will make it 50 cents 
then for each member.

The Department Commander: The next thing in order is nomination 
of qfficers for the ensuing year. 

Comrade K J. Ayers of Post No. 68, Towanda: Department Com- 
mander and Comrades, I rise to nominate for the important office of 
Department Commander for this great Department, Comrade J. Andrew 
Wilt of Post 68, Towanda. (Applause.) I do this, Comrades, most 
cheerfully, because I have been acquainted with him nearly forty years. 

He enlisted in the service of his country in his teens in the 18th 
Pennsylvania Cavalry, and followed through the service until mustered 
out at the close of the war, and still in his teens. He is a Comrade who 
is known as the working man in our Post; he has been Commander 
several times and been Adjutant for the past twenty years. I want to 
say to you. Comrades, if you elect him to this important office, you 
will make no mistake. (Applause.) 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: Department Commander 
and Comrades, it has been suggested to me that I should say a word. 
Twenty-nine years ago when I was made Assistant Adjutant Greneral of 
this Department, Comrade Wilt was the Judge Advocate. During the 
six years that I served as Assistant Adjutant General, such was his at- 
tention to the interests of the Grand Army, and such his standing and 
influence in his community, that twenty-three years ago when I was 
elected Department Commander, I appointed him my Judge Advo- 
cate, and during that year and in all the years that have elapsed since 
then there has been no more devoted and worthy Comrade than (Com- 
rade Andrew Wilt. It is therefore with great pleasure that I rise to 
second his nomination. (Applause.) 

Comrade John T. Howe of Post 139, Scranton, Pa.: Department Com- 
mander and Comrades, I am here to-day to perform one of the most 
pleasant duties that I have ever been called upon to perform in the 
Grand Army of the Republic, and that is, to place in nomination the 
name of a particular friend of mine, a man whom I have known for 
the last forty odd years, who has grown gray in the service of the Grand 
Army of the Republic, a man who went out in the 203d Pennsylvania 
Volunteers, and has been the Commander of Griffin Post No. 139 of 
Scranton for the last seven years without opposition. 
' The man whom I place in nomination to-day, is Comrade A. B. 
Stevens, of the city of Scranton. There is no man in whom the good 
citizens of old Lackawanna have had more confidence than in him. He 
has been once Marshal of his county, another time elected sheriff, and 
he took care that none of the Grand Army boys were left to pine be- 
hind the bars while he was in that office. There is no one who can lay 
a finger upon anything that Comrade A. B. Stevens has ever done in 
that locality that does not become an honest man and a good soldier. 
I know that there are just as good Grand Army men before me to-day; 
I have nothing to urge against Comrade Wilt; nobody thinks more of

him than I do, but we think and claim that we have got a better man 
even than Wilt. We tie ourselves fast to that. 

I want to say to you also, that no difference what the result may be, 
you will find that the members of Post 139 will be right in line, and 
we will wish you God-speed and stand by you as we always have. 

The Department Commander: Comrade Wilt and Comrade Stevens 
have been placed in nomination for Department Commander. Are 
tnere any others? 

Comrade DeLacey of Post 139: Now my Commander and Comrades I 
desire to say a word in behalf of my Commander and Comrade; know- 
ing this Comrade so well for so many years, knowing the attitude that 
the other Comrades in this Department have taken in the discharge of 
the duties of Grand Army men, think about it for a moment, what a 
grand body of men is assembled here to-day. We can't very well make 
any difference, any Comrade in my mind that has the record that en- 
titles him to a position in this grand body of American soldiers or ex- 
soldiers, he certainly is entitled to be the Commander if his comrades 
see fit to nominate and elect him. 

Now we of North-eastern Pennsylvania, of the city of Scranton, we 
feel as though our great commercial industries and interests and those 
patriotic people should be recognized. We don't feel that we are asking 
too much from you. I ask you Comrades, to treat us, the Comrades of 
the city of Scranton, fairly. We don't claim that our Comrade excels 
the Comrade whose name has already been presented in any particular 
way, but we ask you in behalf of the Comrade whose name we present 
and request you, if you cannot support us, to permit us to go down in 
honorable defeat by standing by our guns, as the men on the Cumber- 
land stood by their guns and fired their last shot with their decks 
Darely above water. 

We have a Post to-day of 417 members; we have lost 21 members 
since last Memorial Day. We sent out instructors to deliver lectures to 
over 20,000 children; we have over forty schools in Scranton, and we 
also visited surrounding towns and we did this all under the command 
of A. B. Stevens, the Commander of Post 139. We have been giving 
this patriotic instruction to the children of that locality, and I want 
to say to you that we will continue to do it. Comrades, I thank you. 
(Applause.) 

Comrade , of Madison Cooper Post No, 445 Bradford 

county: Department Commander and Comrades, I have listened with 
a great deal of enthusiasm to the compliments paid by the members 
wno have presented the names here for Department Commander for 
the ensuing year, and I can truthfully say that I believe they have not 
overstated the case in any particular. 

Judging from the looks of the m^n who represent the Grand Army 
here to-day, those men have spoken the truth, but I want to say to you 
that all that has been said of Comrade Stevens of Scranton, is equally

true of Comrade Wilt, of Towanda. By day and by night, early and 
late through all the years of his life, he has worked unselfishly for the 
building up of the Grand Army of Pennsylvania and of Bradford county 
in particular. We up in Bradford county are agriculturists. We dig 
our living from the soil, and want to say to you that the old 
Comrades spread out in those farms over the hills, all over our county, 
are passing away, and they are looking forward to the time when they ' 
shall be represented in their declining days by a Department Com- 
mander. 

I ask you, my Comrades, in justice to a working community to a 
community so far as I know which has been self-supporting, self-sus- 
taining, and so far as the records show, they show that there is not a 
name from that county in the Soldiers' Home. I ask you to take these 
things into consideration, and give old Bradford county a Department 
Commander. As to Comrade Wilt, I can add nothing to his virtues; 
they speak for themselves. You who have been identified with him 
for the last twenty-five years, know his character and can read it 
like an open book, but we ask you in behalf of that section which sent 
at least one regiment to the front, which at Gettysburg lost 78 per cent, 
of the number engaged on that field, to elect Comrade Wilt. Comrade 
Wilt went in there a boy and came out a boy, but he didn't forget his 
patriotism. From time to time, without money and without price, he 
has come here and he has gone all over Bradford county, and has 
built up that institution and maintained it to its present strength and 
we ask in the interest of the Grand Army of the Republic and Bradford 
county in particular — we ask you to endorse his nomination and elect 
him. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander: Are there any other nominations? If 
not, I declare the nominations for Department Commander closed. 

The next business in order is, nominations for Senior Vice-Department 
Commander. 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: Department Commander 
and Comrades, while speeches may not be necessary in matters of this 
kind, it seems to me that when you have gone to the expense of travel- 
ing and attending these Department Encampments, you should know 
something of the men for whom you are asked to vote. 

Last night while you were enjoying the pleasures of the campfire, 
there met in another hall some forty or fifty survivors of a Pennsylva- 
nia regiment, and with them until midnight, sat Reading's foremost 
citizen, one of Pennsylvania's foremost citizens now livmg, General D. 
McM. Gregg, (Applause) the man who had organized, and disciplined 
that regiment until, as he stated last night, he could take it out and 
manoeuver and drill in competition with the regulars with whom he 
had served before. The history of that regiment is probably known to 
almost every man who served in the Army of the totomac. It was its

236 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

peculiar destiny to have led that old army of the Potomac in every one 
of its spring campaigns. That was the regiment that led the army as 
it moved up the Peninsula. It was the first to lead the way across the 
Chickahominy and plant its colors on the other side. It covered the 
withdrawal of the army as it mcrved to Harrison's Landing. It led it 
on the Antietam campaign and to the battle of Chancellorsville and 
" on the second day of that engagement made its historic charge on the 
Plank Road. It led the Army of the Potomac again as it moved from 
Gettysburg to go back into Virginia. In '64 it led it as it crossed the 
Rapidan being the first regiment to cross at Lee's Ferry. It moved 
again in the advance in the Appomatox campaign, and was the regiment 
that fired the last shot in that battle. 

To this regiment when it was first organized in 1861, came an un- 
assuming and quiet kind of a boy, a little past eighteen. His had been 
a hard life; left an orphan at an early age he had known nothing but 
toil in the mines and in the lumber camps. He served his first three 
months' enlistment with the 11th regiment, then joining the 8th Penn- 
sylvania cavalry, for that is the regiment to which I have referred, he 
participated in every one of the 135 battles and skirmishes which the 
records of the War Department show, that regiment participated in. 

At Appomattox, after his squadron having been practically annihi- 
lated because of his gallantry and valor, he was selected by his Brigade 
Commander, and placed in command of the battalion that made the 
last charge and captured the last rebel flag, and killed the last rebel 
soldier killed in the Army of Northern Virginia. 

This Comrade, Andrew J. Lee, having won the love of his Comrades 
in the regiment, returned home to civil life without the advantages of 
education, but such was his devotion to every duty that was imposed 
upon him, that within a year after the close of the war, he had eighteen 
hundred men under his control and charge. It is said of him that not- 
withstanding the many important positions which he has held in civil 
life, that there is not a single one of them that is not open to him 
when he wishes to return to it. He has only left them because of ad- 
vancement to other positions. This Comrade does not claim to be a 
speaker; it was not his good fortune to be an educated man. He has 
simply, by devotion to every duty which he ever faced in military or 
civil life, advanced himself by his sterling qualities of manhood. 

His record as a Grand Army man will stand comparison with that 
of any man in this Department. For thirty-eight years he has been a 
steadfast member of Post 20 of Hazleton, and has always done a great 
deal to promote the interests of the three Posts near his home. 

I have made these statements that you may know something of the 
quality of the man for whom I ask you to vote as Senior Vice Com- 
mander. 

It was moved and seconded that the nominations for Senior Vice Com- 
mander close. Agreed to.

The Department Commancler: The next business in order is nomina- 
tions for Junior Vice Department CJommander. 

CJomrade James Walker, Post 94, Philadelphia: Department Com- 
mander and Comrades, I desire to place in nomination for Junior Vice 
Department Commander, a comrade who served on the Council ot 
Administration for the last two years, and who has been a member of 
our Post for the past thirty years. 

I desire therefore to place in nomination Past Commander William 
H. Green for Junior Vice Department Commander. 

Comrade Joseph Gould was also placed in nomination for Junior 
Vice Department Commander. 

Comrade Donelson, Post 27: I rise for the purpose of seconding the 
nomination of Comrade Green. In seconding the nomination of Com- 
rade Green, I simply want the Comrades of this Department to under- 
stand that he is worthy in every respect, and I hope that this Convention 
will unanimously give him their support. 

It was moved and seconded that the nominations for Junior Vice 
Commander close. Agreed to. 

The Department Commander: The next business in order is Medical 
Director — nominations are now in order for Medical Director. 

Past Department Commander Taylor: Department Commander and 
Comrades, I rise to place in nomination the present incumbent, Dr. 
Albert M. Smith of Post 612, Beaver Springs. Dr. Smith's record for 
the past two years is suflacient to warrant his continuance. 

The nomination was seconded by several Comrades. 

It was moved and seconded that the nomination for Medical Director 
now close. Agreed to. 

Department Commander: The next business in order is nominations 
for Department Chaplain. 

Comrade A. P. Burchfield, of Post 117, Pittsburg: I nominate Com- 
rade John W. Sayers, the present incumbent. 

The nomination was seconded by many Comrades. 

It was Inoved and seconded that the nominations for Department 
Chaplain now close. Agreed to. 

Comrade A. P. Burchfield: Department Commander and Comrades, 
no one has so endeared himself and impressed himself upon the Com- 
rades of this Department as the man that I have named for that posi- 
tion; so much so, that for the past thirty-three years he has occupied 
that office and now for the thirty-fourth time we are going to elect him

again. He has so impressed himself upon us that we all love and honor 
Comrade John W. Sayers as the Chaplain of this great Department. 
(Applause.) 

It was moved that the Chaplain be elected by acclamation. 

The Department Commander: We will take up the regular order in 
the order that they were nominated and we will elect the Senior Vice 
Commander first, as there was no opposition to the Senior Vice Com- 
mander. 

Past Department Commander Stewart: I move that in all cases 
where there is but one candidate, that the candidate nominated be 
declared elected by acclamation. 

The motion having been duly seconded, it was agreed to. 

The Department Commander: I therefore declare Comrade Andrew 
J. Lee duly elected Senior Vice Department Commander for the en- 
suing year, Dr. Albert M. Smith duly elected Medical Director for the 
ensuing year, and Chaplain John W. Sayers for the 34th term, duly 
elected as Department Chaplain for the ensuing year. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Department Commander and 
Comrades, I want to state that the procession has been formed down 
town, and I have been trying to get up here for three-quarters of an 
hour. I don't know whether they are waiting on this Encampment. 
While I am satisfied that very many of us could not walk out where 
the monument is to be unveiled, erected in memory of President 
McKinley, yet we ought not to be in session during the ceremony. We 
ought to adjourn out of respect to the citizens of Reading and to the 
memory of Comrade McKinley, while they are dedicating that monu- 
ment, and if the Comrades will vote for the oflacers as they pass out, it 
will save time and forward the business of the Encampment. Boxes 
will be placed at the door in which to deposit your ballots as you pass 
out. 

Comrade Stevens, Post 139: Department Commander, I heard a man 
to the right of me, and a member of Post 139, say that he did not un- 
derstand what was said and I would like to have the motion repeated so 
that we may know what it referred to. 

The Department Commander made a statement in explanation in 
response to the request of Comrade Stevens. 

Comrade Hicks, of Altoona, presented the name of Altoona as a 
candidate for the place of the next Department Encampment. 

Comrade Hicks earnestly and cordially invited the encampment to 
come to Altoona, assuring them of a hearty reception by the people of 
that loyal mountain city. (Applause.)

Comrade Asa B. Stevens, Post No. 139: Commander, I rise to a ques- 
tion of privilege. I want to say to the Comrades of this Department 
that my being a candidate for Department Commander was unsoli- 
cited and against my expressed wishes. The Comrades of my Post and 
vicinity were the authors of my candidacy; I have never solicited nor 
declined an office in the fraternal organization of which I am a mem- 
ber. They put me forward. I was in their hands; but I want to say 
that as far as the Comrade selected for the office is concerned, I do not 
hold him responsible for the untruthful statements that have been made 
about me in this town. I do not believe he is responsible, and I want 
to say to him that there will be no more loyal supporter among the 
Comrades of this Department than your humble servant. (Applause.) 

The Assistant Adjutant General presented and read the report of the 
committee appointed to act upon the report of the council of Admin- 
istration.

Reading, June 8, 1905. 
Charles A. Suydam, 

Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: Your Committee, to which was referred the report of the 
Department Chaplain, have the honor to state that they have attended 
to the duty assigned them, and like all the reports emanating from 
Chaplain Sayers, is altogether worthy of acceptance. We warmly com- 
mend Chaplain Sayers for the faithful discharge of his official duties. 

In submitting this report, we desire to further say that during the 
period of his incumbency of the office of Department Chaplain, our 
beloved Comrade Rev. John W. Sayers, D. D., has delivered many 
Memorial Day Sermons — a number of them upon the historic field of 
Gettysburg, and at the earnest request of friends throughout Pennsyl- 
vania and elsewhere, some of Chaplain Sayers' Memorial Day Sermons 
have been published in book form, under the title of "The More Ex- 
cellent Sacrifice." 

Your Committee has examined that volume of Memorial Day Ser- 
mons, and we commend it to the careful oonsideration of our com- 
rades throughout the American Union, preserved by their valor. The 
little book is an honor to Chaplain Sayers, and wherever read will ad- 
vance the cause of religion, morality, patriotism, country, home and 
humanity. 

Throughout all its pages, the Man of Nazareth is held up as the model 
for ail human creatures to follow, and the love and affection and pride 
of Chaplain Sayers for the veteran soldier of 1861-65 is manifested in 
every sermon.. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EBENEZER ADAMS, 
WILLIAM M. EISENHOWER, 
JOHN W. FRAZIER.

that we have carefully examined his annual statement, and find that 
it is admirably prepared and shows with great minuteness his receipts

Reading, June 7, 1905. 
Charles A. Suydam, 

Assistant Adjutant General: 

The Committee, to which was referred the address of the Department 
Commander, submit the following as their report: 

We commend the briefness of the address and the able manner in • 
which it was delivered to the Encampment. 

The good news again conveyed to the Comrades in relation to the 
able and conscientious management of the Pennsylvania Soldiers* and 
Sailors' Home and the Soldiers' Orphan Schools must be most pleasing 
to every Comrade, and the Department Commander deserves great 
praise for the interest he has manifested in both these institutions.

Prom personal observation, the money expended in renovating the 
Headquarters Room has been v^ell spent. The Comrades can now visit 
a pleasant home at Fifth and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, where all 
are welcome. 

The attention of the Encampment is especially called to the number 
of miles travelled by the Department Commander in his visitations 
during the year. 

We have some knowledge of the sacrifices he is required to make if he 
attend# to his duties in a proper manner. Commander McNevin has 
made these sacrifices in the interest of our organization willingly, cheer- 
fully, and in the hope that he might do some good for the Comrades who 
elevated him to his high position. 

The Committee presents the following resolution: 

Resolved, That the incomingr Commander be directed to appoint a committee of five 
Comrades to procure and present to Department Commander McNevin a suitable testi- 
monial In appreciation of his valuable services.

Republic can be followed by their successors with profit to themselves 
and our organization. 

It gives the Committee pleasure to express words of praise in behalf 
of such excellent cocarades, whose devotion to the principles of our 
order has been marked by every comrade with whom they come in 
contact.

244 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS. 

Past Department Commander Hull: 

The Committee has carefully considered all resolutions presented, 
and report that number one is a resolution presented by Post No. 64, 
as follows, calling attention to the plan adopted by that Post in coniiec- 
tion with Memorial Day and the public schools. We give the entire 
text of the same in full: 

To the Qrand Army Oamrades of WUllamsport, Pa., belong the distinction of having 
Inaugurated a patriotic educational movement not only highly commendable, but one 
that gives promise of spreading throughout the country, and becoming more popular 
from year to year. Reno Post, No. 64, Depeurtment of Pennsylvania, Q. A. R. origin- 
ated the Idea of organizing the boys of the public schools into Cadet Companies, 
well drilled and uniformed, to participate In the Memorial Day services, was put Into 
effective operation. 

The proposition was officially sanctioned by the State School Authorities, as well as 
by the Department of Pennsylvania Qrand Army Officers. 

Through offering suitable prizes to the best drilled companies as shown by com- 
petitive contest, a friendly rivalry was developed among the boys making up the 
several companies, and a wide-spread public interest was aroused. Flags were given 
as prizes for the first year; for the second year, sets of popular books were awarded: 
and for Memorial Day observance this year a handsome sword and belt were given 
as both first and second prizes. The degree of efficiency shown by the boys of the 
six contesting companies was such as to elicit the warm praise of experienced military 
men, and the appearance of the Cadet Companies in their drilling and peurade of the 
day was universally culmired and applauded. 

A largely increased Interest was shown in the general proceedings of the day. The 
parade was unusually creditable, being participated in by a number of pktrlotio 
organizations and societies in addition to the National Guard, the Grand Army Vet- 
erans, the Sons of Veterans and the Public School Cadets. 

Resolved, That the plan being followed by the Comrades of Post 64 of this De- 
partment to secure the active and organized co-operation of the Public Schools in the 
general and regular observance of Memorial Day, and as a means of educating the 
young along patriotic lines, be unqualifiedly approved and commended to all Posts of 
our State, and that the delegates representing this Department in the National En- 
campment be instructed to present this subject to the National body as worthy of its 
cordial approval. 

Your Committee respectfully submits the foregoing, with a recom- 
mendation that the Resolution be approved, which was agreed to. 

Number two, presented by Post No. 3, requesting for "The appoint- 
ment of a Committee to present an 'Act' similar to that passed by the 
Legislature of Nebraska (see copy attached) to the next Legislature of 
Pennsylvania, and urge the passage thereof." 



Legislature of Nebraska. 
Twenty-ninth Session. 



A BUrL. 

For an act to provide for the proper observance of Memorial Day, and to prevent 
horse racing, ball playing, and all other sports and games, on that day, tending to 
disturb the publici peace, and prescribing a penalty for Its violation. 
Introduced by H. Hughes. 

Read first time February 27, 1905. Read second time February 28, 1905, and referred to 
Committee on Miscellaneous Subjects. Sent to printer March 1, 1905. 

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Nebraska: 
Section 1. Any person or persons who shall on the 30th day of May, commonly known 

as Memorial Day, engage in horse racing, ball plajring, or in any game of sport, 

which may tend to disturb the public peace on the 30th day of May, shall be deemed

eruUty of a misdemeanor, and shall be punished by a fine not exceeding One Hun- 
dred Dollars, or by Imprisonment for not more than thirty days, or both, in the 
discretion of the Court. 

Your CJommittee report favorably and request the adoption of the 
foregoing. Adopted. 

Past Department Commander Beath: Commander, before Comrade 
Hull disposes of that, I would like to inquire whether the word "decora- 
tion" — this is a copy of the bill presented to the Nebraska Legislature, 
and this was stricken out with pencil when I read it. I think we had 
better tell the Department of Nebraska that there is no such day known 
to the Grand Army of the Republic as "decoration day." 

Past Department Commander Hull: This next resolution has reference 
to a change in the rules and regulations, so that a Comrade applying 
for admission to a post on a transfer card, can be balloted for and ad- 
mitted at the same meeting at which he presents his application. The 
committee reports on that — the second one — ^referring it to the National 
Encampment. 

Past Department Commander Beath: I would like to know why you 
didn't refer that to the committee on laws. 

The Assistant Adjutant General Suydam: Commander, I move that 
this be referred to the committee on Laws. 

The motion being seconded it was agreed to. 

Number three is an invitation to attend the "Silver Anniversary En- 
campment" of Pennsylvania Sons of Veterans. 

Headquarters, Executive Oommlttee, 
Twenty-fifth Annual EIncampment, 
Pennsylvania Division, Sons of Veterans, U. S. A., 
Milton, Pa., June 3rd, 1905. 

To the OfHcers and Members of the Department of Pennsylvania, Grand Army of 
the Republic, Greeting: 

'Ve wish you God speed in the work of your Encampment, and extend a hearty 
invitation to our Silver Anniversary Encampment at Milton, Penna., June 14, 15 and 
16, 1905. 

Fraternally yours, 

WIULJAM B. QODCHARLES, 
Chairman of Committee. 
Secretary, 

FRANK RHOADS. 

The Committee report favorably, accepting the invitation, with the 
recommendation that there be a large attendance of the Comrades, who 
by their presence will give encouragement to "The Boys" in advancing 
the interests of their splendid organization. Adopted.

246 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Number four is a resolution presented by Joseph E. Clark, Commander 
of Post No. 518. 

Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Encampment that the part of the pension 
laws which deprives a Soldier's widow of her right to a pension because of her having 
married after June, 1890, Is an injustice, and that part of the pension law works a 
great injury to the widows and children of very many of the veteran soldiers and 
sailors, whose services were so valuable when most needed, and who have married 
later than the date named in the Act, That we petition Congress through the Thirty- 
ninth National Encampment for the repeal of this portion of said Act. 

Your Committee report this with a favorable recommendation and 
move that it be referred to the Representatives to the Thirty-ninth 
National Encampment. So ordered. 

Number five is a transcript from the records of Posts No. 37, adopted 
April 1st, 1905. 

That the representatives of this Post attending the Etepartment Encampment at 
Reading, Pa., June 7th and Sth, 1905, be instructed to vote in favor of instructing" 
the representatives of the Department of Pennsylvania attending the National En- 
campment at Denver, Colorado, in September, 1905, to vote for a straight service 
pension bill, granting $12 per month to every honorably discharged soldier, sailor and 
marine, regardless of age or length of service, and a like amount to the widows of 
such soldiers, sailors and marines. 

Unanimously agreed to. 

JACOB H. RAHN, P. C. 
Attest: F. R. HENDRIOKSON, 

Adjutant. 

The committee report favorably. Adopted. 

Number six is a resolution presented by Comrades John T. Howe and 
P. DeLacey, of Post No. 139: 

Resolved, That it is recommended that each Post in this Department make a detail 
suiflcient to visit the various schools in its vicinity previous to Memorial Day, for 
the purpose of bringing out a better observance of the day, and also to impress the 
Importance of giving our school children instruction along patriotic lines. 

Your Committee report that while this feature incident to the ob- 
servance of Memorial Day is generally provided for, we move the 
adoption of the resolution. Adopted. 

Number seven is a preamble and resolution presented by Comrade 
Ebenezer Adams of Post No. 21. 

Whereas, Our ranks are being rapidly depleted through the frequent visitations of 
Death, and Whereas, These visitations are leaving many widows and daughters who 
would esteem it a great privilege and honor to wear upon their breasts the badge of 
their deceased husbands and fathers; therefore, be it Resolved, That this Encamp- 
ment request or petition the next National Encampment to make this privilege per- 
missive by an action of said National Encampment. 

The Committee returns this resolution with a negative recommenda- 
tion for the reason that a number of states (including Pennsylvania) 
have enacted laws prohioiting the wearing of the badge of the Grand' 
Army of the Republic, by any person not a member of said organization. 
On motion, the action of the Committee was approved.

GRAND ARMY OB' THE REPUBLIC. 247 

The resolution in reference to a change in the rules and regulations 
permitting a post to act upon the application of a Comrade for admission 
on a transfer card on the same night the application is presented, was 
referred to the committee on laws. I make this statement so that com- 
rades may understand that it has passed out of the hands of the com- 
mittee on resolutions. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Department Commander, I now 
move you that the report of the committee on resolutions be adopted 
as a whole. Motion having been seconded, it was agreed to. 

Past Department Commander Beath presented the report of the Com- 
mittee on Laws and Rules, as follows: 

Reading, Pa., June 8, 1905. 

To the Department Encampment: 

Your committee appointed to consider proposed amendments to the 
Rules, liegulations and Ritual, respectfully report that the following 
be approved by the Department of Pennsylvania, and be duly submitted 
for the action of the National Encampment: 

First: To amend Paragraph 1, Article 2, Chapter 3, Rules and Regu- 
lations (page 14) to constitute comrades of a Department who have 
served as Senior or Junior Vice Comamnder-in-Chief, members of their 
respective Department Encampments, as now prescribed for Command- 
ers-in-Chief, by amendment to the rules of 1902. 

Second: To amend Section 3, Article 4, Chapter 2 (page 9), so that 
Comrades who have been honorably discharged from the Grand Army 
of the Republic shall i^ot, upon rejoining any Post, require to be re- 
obligated. 

Comrades dropped from the rolls, upon rejoining or on reinstatement, 
are not required to be re-obligated, and the same rule should apply to 
comrades honorably discharged. 

Third: We also recommend for careful consideration of the National 
Encampment, condensation • of the obligation imposed on the intro- 
duction of new members. 

Fourth: Post No. 18, of Philadelphia, presents a resolution to amend 
Section 4, Article 4, Chapter 5, Rules and Regulations (page 29) to make 
it obligatory upon a Post to formally drop from the rolls a member one 
year in arrears, after the formal two months notice prescribed in that 
section. 

Under the present rules, such action is optional with the Post, and 
it is argued that Comrades standing suspended are so carried on the 
rolls of the Post for a number of years, thus preventing the Comrade 
from making application to another Post of his choice. When a 
comrade has been dropped, he is at liberty to join another Post upon 
payment of not exceeding one year's dues, but for the suspended mem-

ber, dues accumulate until they amount to a larger sum than many 
Comrades can pay for relief from suspension. It seems just that some 
limitation be imposed, and while not clear that the remedy is exactly 
that proposed, the question is of such general and far-reaching im- 
portance, that we recommend its submission to the National Encamp- 
ment. 

Fifth: Paragraph 2, Article 2, Chapter 3, Rules and Regulations (page 
14) prescribe that Departments are, at their discretion, authorized to 
restore honors lost by Past Post Commanders. 

Post No. 58 makes application for reinstatement of Comrade Daniel 
W. Cox, of that Post, and also of Franklin Snow, formerly of Post No. 
8, Philadelphia, and W. F. Eicher and A. A. Wasson, late of Post No. 
37, York. The above-named are now members of Post No. 58. It is, of 
course, understood that in this Department no special privileges are 
given to Past Post Commanders. In a number of the smaller Depart- 
ments, they are members of the Department Encampment. The case 
is clear as to Comrade Daniel W. Cox, who was dropped from Post No. 
58, but it not clear that we have the right to restore the honors of 
comrades who served as Post Commanders in other Posts, and certainly 
this should not be done without the consent of such Posts. We there- 
fore recommend that the Department approve the application on behalf 
of Comrade Daniel W. Cox, and that i}ie Assistant Adjutant General 
shall correspond with Post 8 and Post 114, as to the restoration of Com- 
rade Franklin Snow, and with Post No. 37 as to the restoration of 
Comrades W. F. Eicher and A. A. Wasson, and if such Posts approve the 
application, then the Department Commander is authorized to declare 
the honors of such positions restored to the Comrades named. It will 
be understood, that if so restored, they cannot be borne on the rolls of 
Post No. 58 as having served that Post as Post Commanders, but on 
the roll it can be stated they were Commanders of the other Posts. 

Sixth: To amend the fourth paragraph of Section 1, Article 2, Chap- 
ter 4, page 20) to change the ratio of representation from Departments 
to the National Encampment from 750 to 500. 

Seventh: To amend Section 1, Articles 3, Chapter 2 (page 8), so that 
a Comrade applying for admission on Transfer card may be ballotted 
for and admitted at the meeting at which the application is presented, 
the application being received, and referred to a committee with au- 
thority to report at that meeting. 

Eighth: Past Department Commander Thomas J. Stewart presented 
a resolution recommending the appointment of "Patriotic Instructor** 
for the National Encampment, and of "Department Patriotic Instructor** 
for Departments, whose duties shall be to advance and urge patriotic 
instruction in the Public Schools. 

This work, for some years past, has devolved upon a special Aide-de- 
Camp, and its importance and continuance seem to justify more formal 
and official recognition. 

We approve the suggestion, and recommend its submission to the 
National Encampment.

GRAND ARMY OP THE REPUBLIC. 249 

Ninth: Post No. 56, of Philaxielphia, presents a resolution for the 
restoration of Comrade R. M. J. Reed, former Commander of that Post 
It is stated that the reason he was dropped from the rolls of the Post 
was because of continued absence in the work of organizing the Sons 
of Veterans. 

Some questions have arisen in this case which, in the opinion of the 
committee, require further consideration which we are unable to give 
at this time, and as no harm can come from a postponement, we recom- 
mend that the application be referred to a special committee of three, 
who shall have authority to make such investigation as may be proper 
and requisite, and report their conclusions to the next Department En- 
campment.

Past Department Commander Sample: I move that the report of the 
Committee be adopted as a whole. The motion being seconded, it was

ment the report of the committee appointed to convey the greetings 
of this Encampment to the Ladies of the G. A. R:

Charles A. Suydam, 

Assistant Adjutant General: 

Comrade: Your Committee appointed to convey greetings to the 
Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, respectfully report they have 
performed the duties assigned them. 

The ladies gratefully accepted the greetings, and directed us to convey 
their heartfelt wishes for the welfare of the Grand Army and their 
desire for its future prosperity.

To the Commander, Officers and Members of the 39th Annual Encamp- 
ment, Department of Pennsylvania, Grand Army of the Republic: 
Comrades: The committee, to whom was referred the report of the 
Assistant Adjutant General, respectfully submits the following:

250 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PEINNA., 

We have examined the report with great care, and find that the same 
is full and complete in every detail, and demonstrates that the Depart- 
ment Commander committed no error in appointing Comrade Charles 
A. Suydam to this, the most responsible position (except Department 
Commander) in the Department. 

Your Committee regrets to note that the report shows the delin- 
quency of Post Commanders in not promptly forv/arding reports, and 
thus delaying the work of the otRce, and imposing additional duties 
thereon. In view of the arduous work of the Assistant Adjutant Gen- 
eral, this negligence on the part of Post Commanders, while not in- 
tentional, nor intended to impose additional labor, is really inexcusable, 
and the additional burdens imposed by this neglect or omission, entails 
a hardship that is not realized by those who cause the same. 

It is earnestly hoped that no cause for a similar complaint will ever 
again be reported to the Department, as our records should be correct 
and complete, and this can only be accomplished by prompt and well 
prepared reports. 

The long experience of Comrade Suydam as Assistant Adjutant 
General and his familiarity with the Department and the various Posts 
composing the same, and his close attention to the duties of the position, 
peculiarly fit him for this important work that he has so long, so well 
and so faithfully performed. 

The thanks of the Department and every Comrade of the same are due 
to Comrade Suydam for the able, courteous and eflacient manner in 
which he performs his duties and for the management of the affairs 
of the Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WM. T. POWELOL., 
JOHN G. TAYLOR, 
A. S. MOYER, 
A. I. ACKERLY, 
CHAS. F. HUBER. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: Commander and Comrades, I 
have a statement to make as to the result of the canvass for the Steph- 
enson Memorial fund. We have pledged from forty-four Posts amount- 
ing to $400.00 even, and from three individuals amounting to $40. We 
also have pledges from Posts at so much a member amounting to $99.40, 
making a total of $539.40. 

Now have any of you paid me money that is not mentioned on this 

list? 

A Comrade: Post 297 is not mentioned. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: What was their pledge? 

A Comrade: $5.00; it was paid in cash.

Past Department Commander Wagner: Has anybody else been 
omitted ? 

A uomrade: Post 59 pledged $5.00. 

A Comrade: Post 366 paid $5.00. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: Comrades, that lets me out; I 
am obliged to you. I had $10 in cash that I could not account for. $500 
added to previous contributions from the Department will give us 
about $2,800, especially with the thousand dollars contributed by Com- 
rade Miller. If anybody else has a thousand dollars to give us, let 
us have it. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Department Commander, dur- 
ing the meeting of the Committee on Resolutions, I desire at this time 
to make a motion that when we adjourn, that we adjourn to to-morrow 
morning at nine o'clock, and that the Election Board for Junior Vice 
Commander and members of the Council of Administration will take 
their places, and that the Comrades will vote for those ofllcers before 
retiring from the hall, and the result will be announced in the morning. 

The name of Comrade Joseph Gould who was nominated for Junior 
Vice Department Commander was withdrawn by Comrade Alfred Ayers, 
Post Commander of Post 92* of Mt. Carmel, who stated that he was 
authorized to withdraw Comrade Gould's name. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Commander, I move you that 
the Assistant Adjutant General be authorized to cast the unanimous 
vote of this Encampment for Comrade William H. Green of Post 94, 
Philadelphia for the position of Junior Vice Commander of this De- 
partment for the ensuing year. 

The motion having been seconded, it was agreed to. 

Assistant Adjutant General Suydam: By direction of the Department 
Encampment, I cast its unanimous vote for Comrade William H. Green,

252 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Department Commander elect Andrew J. Wilt: Department Com- 
mander and Comrades, you have heard the expression, "I am too full 
for utterance." I wish I was able to express the feelings of my heart 
to-night. Comrades. I assure you. Comrades,^ that I esteem this a 
great honor, and I hope that during the coming year my conduct and 
action will be such that you will be able to say that he has certainly 
endeavored to do the best he could. 

If I had been told when a boy seventeen years old, when I was mus- 
tered out of the service of the United States, that I should ever have the 
honor of commanding 25,000 men who served in the different branches 
of the armies of the Union, I should have said. No, I am not worthy of it. 
Comrades, I don't know that I am to-night, but I shall do the very best 
I can wherever I go, and I will try to preach the gospel of comradeship, 
fraternity, charity and loyalty, and will try to stir up the old Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania as she has never been before. 

You have passed resolutions at this encampm^it that are most dear 
to my heart. I have contended and shall contend in the coming year, 
that one of our duties, and one of our most important duties as Grand 
Army men, is that we shall be the advance guard and take the boys and 
girls of this great Commonwealth and instil into them the right ideas 
of American citizenship. That subject is dear to my heart, and wherever 
I shall go, I expect to preach it to you, and I want every Comrade in 
this great Department to be on the picket line, but I don't want them 
to shoot unless there is an enemy in reach of them. 

I believe that the greatest duty we have to-day is to do the things 
which will work for the future good of our country. We have done our 
duty as soldiers. They tell us we are old men, but you know the saying 
is, "Young men for war and old men for counsel." We have been the 
young men of the war, now let us be the old men of the council, and 
let us teach the younger and rising generation now, let us show them by 
our lives, by our acts and our instructions what is the end in store for 
this great country of ours in which I take great pride in still advancing 
it and having it go further forwards and forwards, still carrying on its 
banner the principles for which we fought. 

I do not want to detain you; I should be glad to take every Comrade 
by the hand, but I will again say to you my Comrades, that I shall do 
the best I can. Mistakes I shall no doubt make, but if I do, they will 
be mistakes of the head and not of the heart. Again thanking you, ' 
Comrades, I bid you good-night. (Applause.) 

The Senior Vice Commander elect was called for and appeared upon 
the platform, where he was introduced by the Department Commander. 
Senior Vice Commander elect Andrew Lee: D^artment Commander 
and Comrades, there is nothing in my life that has given me more pleas- 
ure than to be the second in command of the Grand Army of the Repub- 
lic of this Department. I will give you my word that this year I will 
do all I can, as I have done for thirty-eight years in the past, for the 
benefit of the Grand Army. I will endeavor to teach the children pa-

triotism and to defend the old flag if need be as I defended it four long 
years. 

I thank you kindly for the honor you have conferred upon me to-day. 
(Applause.) 

The Junior Vice Commander elect was called for and appeared upon 
the platform where he was introduced by the Department Commander. 

Junior Vice Commander elect William H. Green of Post 94, Philadel- 
phia: Commander and Comrades of the Department of Pennsylvania, 
allow me to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the honor you 
have bestowed upon me^ and you may rest assured that I shall fill the 
ofllce of Junior Vice Commander in as able a manner as possible. (Ap- 
plause.) 

The Department Commander: Comrades, I forgot to introduce to you 
the Department Chaplain elect. I now have the pleasure of presenting 
to you Department Chaplain Sayers, who will say a few words. 

Department Chaplain elect John W. Sayers: Department Commander 
and Comrades, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your kindness 
and your confidence, and so far as lies in my power, I shall do every- 
thing to further the interests of our organization. I need not tell you — 
those of you who are in contact with me from day to day or week to 
week, that next to my church, I give my time to the interests of the 
Grand Army of the Republic, and I love it better than any other or- 
ganization. (Applause.) 

Let me also say this, lest it might be misunderstood; I think the man 
is on this platform now who is responsible for my being in this position. 
It was not sought by me, and Comrade Beath can testify to that, for 
I had no thought when first elected to this position, of filling it, but 
when we elected men who did not serve, who didn't care anything 
about us — let me say that to you also— men who wouldn't do a single 
thing, I came into the position and I served. I tried to do the best 
I could, and by the help of God I mean to do it, and in the line in 
which the Department Commander elect has been speaking, in educating 
and training the boys and girls in our publfc schools and elsewhere. I 
think it is our mission until the Master shall call us hence, to teach them 
to be true, to teach them to be loyal to the flag that you and I love so 
dearly, how it flies above the flag of every other nation, and how it 
is honored as no other flag is honored. I have often said in speaking 
and listening to addresses like that of last night by Comrade Blackmar, 
and often thought that our flag, like the rainbow is the symbol of 
promise and the sign of victory over the darkest powers. We have fol- 
lowed it and it has brought victory to us and it will bring victory to 
those who come after us, if we are true to the principles of our fathers. 
(Applause.)

254 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OP PENNA., 

Past Department Commander Hull: The Committee on Resolutions 
have another resolution which they have given Comrade Vanderslice 
permission to offer to this body. 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice presented and read his 
resolution to the Encampment as follows: 

Resolved, That at future Encampments, the Department Commander shall at the 
time of announcing committees upon reports and resolutions, appoint a Committee of 
fifteen, representing as nearly as possible the various sections of the Department. 

To this committee shall be referred all nominations for Representatives to the 
National Encampment. The committee shall hold a meeting and give those so de- 
siring an opportunity to appear before it in behalf of any candidate. It shall make 
a report recommending for election by the Encampment^the candidates named by it, 
giving each section of the Department as fair and just a representation as possible. 

The adoption by the Encampment of the report as made or as amended, shall con- 
stitute the election of Representatives. 

Provided, That no Post shall be represented on this committee two years in suc- 
cession. 

Comrade William Besselievre, of Dupont Post No. 24, Philadelphia: 
Commander, I move that the resolution be laid on the table. 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: I move the adoption of the 
resolution. Motion seconded. 

The Senior Vice Commander in the Chair: The resolution is before 
the Encampment for action. 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: Commander and Com- 
rades, I have given for years considerable consideration to this ques- 
tion, and I think that almost every Comrade in this hall will agree with 
me that the question of the election of representatives from the De- 
partment of Pennsylvania to the National Encampment has caused 
more ill feeling and more dissatisfaction than any other matter in this 
Department. For this reason, because of the large number of repre- 
sentatives that Pennsylvania must elect, there is no time given to 
a Comrade to say a word in behalf of the man he nominates, and 1 
know this to be a fact, that in this Department, when I was Assistant 
Adjutant General, a certain leading Comrade, a man who stood high 
in his community, who had equipped at his own expense the first year 
his Post was organized — had equipped bis Post so that it might turn 
out in proper shape on Memorial Day, and that Comrade held a re- 
sponsible position and was the unanimous choice of his Post for three 
or four years for representative, and each year he was defeated until 
he now pays his dues and that is all. There was no feeling against him 
in this Encampment, and had this custom then prevailed, some com- 
rade would have gone before that Committee and told the standing of 
the man, and what he had done for his Post, and he would have been 
recommended, and would have been elected by your vote. 

This prevents a man from coming here and having himself nomi- 
nated against the wishes and protest of his Post, as has been f re-

quently done in this Department, causing a great deal of dissatisfac- 
tion. Comrades don't know in such cases that a Comrade who may 
nominate himself is not the choice of his Post and the result is, they 
have often been elected to the detriment of the Department. 

In every large body this practice prevails. It is fair; every sec- 
tion of the State will be represented by this committee of fif- 
teen men, and when the names are taken out of the box, anyone who 
has nominated a Comrade can say a word in his behalf, or the repre- 
sentatives of his Post may appear before the committee and state the 
character of the man and tell why he is recommended. It may be that 
they cannot agree upon every man. As it is now, practically twenty- 
five men control the representation of this Department, I do not say 
unfairly, but as there is a large number nominated, if twenty-five men 
unite upon any one man or set of men, they elect him, and yet they 
may not be one-fourth or one-fifth of this Encampment. Under this 
plan some Comrade may rise and say that a Comrade who is recommend- 
ed to that committee, is not the choice of the Post, or not the choice of 
our section. 

As I have said, I have given this matter consideration for years. At 
one time as the Chairman of the Committee, we had mapped out a 
plan of districting the State. The order is now changing so rapidly 
that this would be impracticable, but with a fair committee I believe 
all. this trouble would be obviated; this waste of time, getting these 
tickets printed with a large number of names, some of whom will get 
five or six votes, and probably will be offended, whereas with this method 
we can have a fair representation, and have an opportunity for a man 
to go before this committee and explain why comrades are recom- 
mended. 

I have presented this resolution in the interest of harmony and in the 
interests of all the Posts throughout the State, many of whom have 
nominated men year after year, and notwithstanding they may be the 
very finest of Comrades, and representative Grand Army men, they have 
Dcen defeated. 

A Comrade asked for the second reading of the resolution, and the 
resolution was read a second time. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Commander and Comrades: 
For twenty-six years I have been coming to every meeting of this En- 
campment and for twenty-six years I have heard all sorts of schemes 
brought forward for the purpose of the election of delegates or repre- 
sentatives. I have seen the representativs taken during the adminis- 
tration of Comrade Venderslice that he speaks of, fourteen or fifteen or 
sixteen of them from Philadelphia and nine or ten from Allegheny 
county and the balance of the State could go and find out where they 
could get representation. For the last five or six years — yes, longer than 
that — I challenge any member of this Encampment to take the list of 
representatives to the National Encampment and go over it and ex-

amine it carefully, and he will find that it is the fairest distribution of 
men geographically that could possibly be gotten together in an organi- 
zation of this character. The country representatives, if you choose 
to term them so, the smaller Posts, have been recognized. Now what 
does this propose to do? It proposes now that the Department CJom- 
mander shall appoint, at^the opening of the Encampment, fifteen men, 
to whom all candidates for representatives shall be referred. What 
does that mean? If it means anything, it means that these fifteen men 
that will be named by the Department Commander, can take every repre- 
sentative from any portion of this State that he desires and make him 
a representative to the National Encampment, and you haven't anything 
at all to say about it. (Applause.) 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: Why haven't they? 

Past Department Commander Sample: (Continuing.) I am one of the 
fellows who believes that every Comrade has the right to any office in 
the Grand Army of the Republic to which he may choose to aspire, but 
I also believe that if a hundred Posts in this Encampment should elect 
a representative to the National Encampment, they have a right to do 
so, and who is going to prevent it? How are you going to prevent it? 

It has been truthfully said by other Comrades in speaking upon this 
question every year, that there is no Department that comes upon the 
floor of the National Encampment that has a fairer, squarer repre- 
sentation of the different portions of the State than the Department of 
Pennsylvania. (Applause.) To-day you will find probably Philadel- 
phia with all her membership having five or six representatives to the 
National Encampment. You will find the next section in the far west 
with probably three or four, both of them we will say with ten or eleven, 
then there are twenty delegates or representatives to be distributed 
throughout the State. That was not the case formerly. It was not the 
case during the time referred to by Comrade Vanderslice. 

We have tried every means; we have done everything that is possible 
to be fair and to be square, and the present method has been found 
to be the fairest and the best way that we can devise for the election 
of representatives to the National Encampment. 

There will always be dissatisfaction, I don't care what plan you 
adopt. Every man thinks when he is nominated, he has a right to be 
elected, and so he has, if he gets the necessary votes. That is the 
only principle that should guide us. 

I am opposed to the adoption of the resolution because it creates a 
power and puts it all in the hands of one man, who can elect if he 
chooses every year, the representatives ot the National Encampment by 
the selection of his committee of fifteen, and I trust that the resolution 
will be voted down. (Applause.) 

Past Department Commander Vanderslice: Commander, when we 
discuss measures that affect the welfare of this organization, that affect 
the fraternal and good feeling that should prevail, we ought not to

engage in buncombe, and we should not make statements such as have 
been made by Comrade Sample that in previous administrations, the 
cities of Pittsburg and Philadelphia have been represented to the ex- 
clusion of other portions of the State. The records of the Department 
Encampment are printed and open to every man, and you will find by 
referring to them that Comrade Sample is simply mistaken, but that 
is not the question here. There is no question about the Comrades 
being or not being representative men. There is no question about 
their being an honor to the Department of Pennsylvania, but the ques- 
tion is, why should you go through the farce of having these tickets 
printed, and having an election of representatives when forty or fifty 
votes sometimes are cast for a Comrade, when you have a representation 
here of six or seven hundred. Why not have a majority vote? 

Referring to the statement that Comrade Sample has made that this 
committee can absolutely control this thing, and if desired could recom- 
mend the whole ticket from Philadelphia or Pittsburg, would there a 
committee be found or that could be appointed to come before 
you with such a recommendation and expect it to be adopted? Their 
recommendation is only for the action of the Encampment. I do not 
say, and no one else says, that the different sections of the State are 
not fairly represented, but I think we should get away from this farce 
that don't mean an election, because twenty-five or thirty men elect 
a man. Why should not a committee of fifteen sift out and recommend 
to you such and siich a Comrade for representative, then if one of you 
should get up and say, it is not the desire of our Post; we do not de- 
sire that man to be elected, do you think he would be elected? 

This plan is adopted by other bodies; it is done in other Departments, 
and it seems to me it would prevent a waste of time and would give 
every one a chance to go before that committee and speak a word for 
their Comrades, and then they could not say that his name has been 
hustled through and that he has not been fairly elected. 

It cannot affect me nor my interest one way or the other. It cannot 
affect the Post to which I belong, because it has been fairly treated by 
this Encampment. What I say, I say in the interest of harmony; I 
say it in the interest of the welfare of the Department, and I leave it to 
you for decision. 

Post Commander William Besselievre, Post 24, Philadelphia: Com- 
mander, I have some knowledge of parliamentary law, and I claim that 
Comrade Vanderslice had no right to take the fioor after he had spoken 
once upon his resolution, and when I had the fioor. 

The Department Commander: You are right about that 

Comrade Besselievre: Commander, I renew my motion, which is 
always in order, that this resolution be laid upon the table; that cuts 
off all debate.

258 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA.. 

A Comrade: I rise to a point of order. There was a motion made 
and seconded to adopt the resolution. 

The Department Commander: A motion to lay upon the table is 
always in order. 

The motion having been seconded and the question put, the Com- 
mander declared the motion apparently carried, when a division was 
called for. 

The Department Commander: All in favor of that motion will please 
rise and remain standing until counted by the Assistant Adjutant 
General. 

After the count and the members were seated, the Department Com- 
mander announced the vote as reported to him by the Assistant Ad- 
jutant General to be 271 in favor of laying the resolution on the table, 
therefore the motion carried and the resolution was laid on the table. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Commander, I move that we 
now take a recess until to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock and that in 
passing out, the Comrades cast their votes for the members of the Coun- 
cil of Administration. 

A Comrade: I move you that before we adjourn we select the place 
for the next meeting. 

The Department Commander: It is too late to-night; we will do that 
to-morrow morning. 

As the members passed out, they cast their votes for the members of 
the Council of Administration, and the meeting adjourned until to- 
morrow morning at nine o'clock. 

Academy of Music, Reading, Pa., 9 A. M., Thursday, June 8, 1905, the 
Encampment was called to order by the IDepartment Commander at 
the designated hour. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Comrades, I said a year ago 
when we elected our Department Commander, that he would give us a 
creditable administration, and one that would be satisfactory to all; that 
his ambition and loyalty to the Grand Army of the Republic was of 
such a character that he would size up to the situation. I think you 
will all agree that he has more than verified the good words said of 
him a year ago. To-day he comes to us, and in a few hours will lay 
down the gavel of authority and step back again into the ranks of the 
Grand Army of the Republic and do as he has done in all the years of 
the past, the very best he can for the interests of the Grand Army.

His Aides have asked that I shall say to him something:, give him 
something that will always be a reminder of the pleasant times that 
he had as Commander of this Department notwithtsanding the laborious 
wQrk accompanying it. 

Comrade McNevin, the aides of your staff, sir, have delegated me to 
present to you in their name — not only your staff, but your friends — 
this beautiful watch and chain, and I want to say to you, sir, that in all 
the years that may yet be given you in this life, that when you take 
this watch from your pocket and look into its face, and see the hands 
revolving, even if it should be your fortune to lie upon a bed of sick- 
ness, it will still be a pleasure to you to know as you look upon it, 
that you have won the hearts of your comrades of this Department, 
and that you have done the best that you could in order that this 
splendid organization of ours might continue along the lines of pros- 
perity. 

Now sir, in the name of your staff and your friends, I hand you this 
watch accompanied by their best wishes, and not alone their best 
wishes but those of all the Comrades of this Department with whom 
you have been brought in contact. (Applause.) 

Department Commander McNevin: Past Department Commander Sam- 
ple and Comrades, I hardly know what to say. As I stated one year 
ago in assuming command of this Department that I desired the co- 
operation of the Comrades throughout it in order that my administration 
might be successful, and during this time I have labored to the best of 
my ability, and at this time I can truthfully say that the Comrades have 
rallied to my support, and made my administration I believe, successful. 
To these Comrades I certainly am greatly indebted. 

In receiving at your hands this beautiful watch, I desire to return 
my sincere thanks to the members of my stafC and other Comrades 
who have so kindly remembered me on this occasion, and as the hands 
of this beautiful time-piece mark the hours I shall recall with great 
pleasure the faces of the Comrades who have so honored me on this 
occasion, and I desire to thank each and every Comrade in the Depart- 
ment of Pennsylvania, and I trust that we shall have the pleasure of 
meeting in future Encampments. 

Comrade Theodore Schweriner, Post 6: Let us give three cheers for 
Department Commander McNevin. 

The cheers were given with a will by the entire Encampment. 

The Officer of the Day: Department Commander, I have the honor 
to report that the Woman's Relief Corps it at the door waiting to be 
received and make their report. 

The Department Commander: Please advise them that we will receive 
them in a few minutes.

Prayer by the Chaplain: Our Heavenly Father we look up to Thee 
this morning with grateful hearts and thank Thee for Thy watchful 
care over us in the night that has, passed. We pray that Thou wouldst 
give us grace for the labors of this day. We thank Thee for the har- 
mony, for the brotherliness that has prevailed in this Encampment. 

As we approach the close of the session, while our hearts have re- 
joiced to see so many of our Comrades here, we have also been sad in 
the thought that never again shall we meet as we have met, all of us 
together, this day and yesterday. While some must drop out by the 
way, we pray that Thou wouldst help us that we may go forward 
praising Thee; that no matter what shall come to us in the days and 
weeks and months that are before us, that we may be faithful and true 
In the discharge of every duty. 

Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to watch over us and keep us 
in the hollow of Thy hand, and do Thou grant, O Lord, when our life 
work is ended here, that while we may not meet here again as we have 
met, may we meet around the throne of God, and hear Thee say, well 
done, good and faithful servant, and unto Thy great name will be 
praise forever more. Amen. 

The Ofllcer of the Day: Department Commander, I have the honor 
to report that a committee of the Ladies of the G. A. R. is waiting at 
the outpoet. They wish to be received and make their report. 

The Department Commander: You will please say to them that we 
will receive them in a few minutes. 

Past Department Commander Sample: I have been requested to an- 
nounce that Mrs. Spargo, President of the Ladies of the G. A. R., from 
Wilkinsburg, fell yesterday with a stroke and I believe has died 
this morning. The Comrades from that PoSt desire that I should 
make this announcement to the Encampment. 

The Department Commander: I will appoint as a committee to escort 
the Ladies of the Woman's Relief Corps upon the platform. Mustering 
Officer Charles O. Smith, Senior Vice Commander H. H. Breneman, and 
Junior Vice Commander J. L. Vose. 

The Committee so appointed escorted the committee of ladies frcwn 
the Relief Corps to the platform, the Encampment being called up and 
saluting, as usual. 

The same committee was appointed by the Department Commander as 
an escort to the committee of ladies from the Ladies of the G. A. R., and 
they were in turn escorted to the platform, the Encampment saluting. 

The delegation from the Woman's Relief Corps consisted of the follow-

262 391^H ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PEJ^NA., 

Again we pledge our loyalty to the Grand Army of the Republic and 
all its interests, and assure you of our readiness to aid you at any and 
all times. 

Respectfully submitted in F., C. and L., 

F. ESTELLE HALL, 
Department President. 
ABBIB LYNCH, 

Department Secretary. 
Mrs. Emma D. Lemon was introduced by the Department Commander 
as the superintendent of the Brookville Home. 

Mrs. Lemon: Commander and Comrades, I will not take up your time 
for I know you are in a hurry to get through with your work to-day. 

Mrs. Dr. Chapman: Comrades, I want to tell you something that one 
member of the Home has said about this small woman we bring with 
us. About a year ago a fine old gentleman who had come to the limit 
of his strength for his support met a man you all know, his name is 
Thomas G. Sample, and he told this Comrade of his distress and of an 
effort to secure a home, and he expected to go to Erie himself and to 
secure a place for his wife in a church home if possible. Comrade 
Sample advised him to go to the Brookville Home, a place the old gen- 
tleman had never heard of, but through his influence, he secured a home 
there. He is now in almost a dying condition, but he is a feeble, honest, 
gentle old man, although he doesn't always express himself as some 
other persons do. After he had been there a time, there was a meeting 
of the Board of Directors, and he came to us and said, I want you to 
find Sample; I want you to tell him how good a home I have. He 
showed me the way to come here, but after I came and Mr. Evans died 
and Mistress Evans was sick, and when we couldn't have her any more, 
we thought this Home would stop. We thought there would not be 
any more home, but we made it a subject of prayer. He said the family, 
the Protestants and the Catholics and everybody had a prayer meeting, 
and they prayed that the Board of Directors would be guided in the 
selection of some one to take Mrs. Evans' place, and he said, do you 
know, the Lord granted it, and we have Mrs. Lemon, and she is so 
gentle, and so mild, and has such superior methods, and is so knowl- 
edgable that we know if we didn't have her this Home would stop, but 
we have her, and we don't expect the Home to stop. (Applause.) 

Mrs. Barrett was then introduced by the Department Commander. 

Mrs. Barrett: Commander and Comrades, it gives me great pleasure 
to greet you, having been the wife of a soldier, which will prove to 
you my deep and abiding interest in the soldier. 

Assuring you of the pleasure of this meeting, and hoping we may all 
meet again I bid you good-bye. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander then introduced the National President, 
Mrs. Hagar, of the Ladies of the G. A. R. from Chicago, who was re- 
ceived with applause.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 263 

Mrs. Hagar: Department Commander and Comrades: It was a great 
pleasure to me this morning to be invited to come with this committee 
of the Ladies of the 6. A. R. of the Department of Pennsylvania to 
meet you. I bring you glad tidings, and the fraternal greeting of the 
30,000 women and about 20,000 Comrades who are honorary members 
of our order. We wish we were able to embody in words and to convey 
to you the sentiment that we entertain toward the brave men who de- 
fended the flag of this nation when it was in danger. They were as 
brave as any army that Napoleon ever led to victory or defeat, and as 
patriotic as any Spartan that ever offered his life as a sacrifice for his 
country. They had a more thorough comprehension of the principle 
for which they fought, and a more thorough realization of what defeat 
meant to themselves than any army ever before marshalled on the field 
of battle. With such an army as that although you had eminent com- 
manders, there was really little need of leaders although you had 
leaders who neither asked nor expected any man to go in advance of 
them to battle. They were enlisted for three years or during the war, 
and they enrolled under our flag with a full knowledge of what our in- 
dependence had cost in blood and treasure. They went to the front, 
there to remain until every rebel had laid down his arms and acknowl- 
edged allegiance to one country and to one flag. (Applause.) At the 
call of Abraham Lincoln, the most majestic flgure in the history of the 
war, they were the loyal sons of the North who responded as though 
touched by the mighty hand of Omnipotence. They waited for no second 
call; they knew that armed treason was assaulting the flag, and they 
went to the front there to remain for four long years of war, of suffer- 
ing and of death, and until the cause for which the South had fought 
went out in everlasting midnight, never to have a resurrection. 

The Grand Army of the Republic is the noblest and grandest organi- 
zation of men in existence. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander then introduced Mrs. Kate E. Blair, of 
the Ladies of the G. A. R. 

Mrs. Blair: Commander and Comrades: This is one of the highest 
honors that has ever been conferred upon me. I never realized at any 
time that I would have the pleasure and the honor of addressing the 
Grand Army of the Republic in a body, therefore I consider it quite an 
honor, not that I have a great deal to say, nor will I take much of your 
time, but I will convey the warmest and the kindest greetings from the 
Ladies of the G. A. R. to this body. They exte%d to you the highest 
and the warmest feelings in their hearts, your mothers, wives, sisters 
and daughters composing the Ladies of the G. A. R. 

Now Comrades, I have only a few words to say. We have several 
others to hear from, but I would like to say that in the past year in 
Pennsylvania we have given to the Grand Army of the Republic $11,215, 
and our total membership is 5,617.

264 39TH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PEJ^NA., 

Now, Comrades, I have nothing more to address to you only to bring 
to you the warmest and the kindest greetings from the Ladies of the 
G. A. R. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander then introduced Miss Bertha Holgate 
of the Chester Springs Soldiers' Orphans' School and member of the 
Ladies of the G. A. R. 

Miss Holgate: Commander and Comrades, I am only going to say that 
I bring to you from the Ladies of the G. A. R. God-speed and God's 
blessing. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander then introduced Mrs. Jennie Troxell of 
the Ladies of the G. A. R. 

Mrs. Troxell: Department Commander and Comrades, for the second 
time it is my pleasure to bring you the greetings from the Ladies of 
the G. A. R. and I am sure I deem it a very great honor. I can scarcely 
find words to express the feeling that takes possession of me in facing 
a body of men whose history has been so spleiidid and whose patriotism 
has been so grand. Two score and four years have passed since the 
war drum ceased to beat, as it led your columns upon fields of battle. 

How can the thought help but thrill us when we look back and see the 
men of the sixties leaving their plows in the field, deserting their 
workshops, leaving their stores and their business, leaving the schools 
even, and above all, their homes, and those they held so dear, making 
such sacrifices for the righteous cause, and going forth to meet the 
forces of rebellion which were trying to destroy our country. 

It was the spirit of patriotism and principle of liberty displayed by 
you Comrades that led so many of our young men, following the example 
of the heroes of '61 to '65 to rush into our recruiting offices during the 
Spanish-American war in numbers far larger than those called for by 
the President of our nation, your martyred Comrade, William McKin- 
ley. You know the glorious result. 

The Department Commander then introduced Mrs. Joseph E. Clark, 
of the Ladies of the G. A. R. 

Mrs. Clark: Department Commander and Comrades, I feel very proud 
of the honor of being allowed to appear before this great organization. 
As the other ladies have used up all the other available ammunition, 
as I suppose I may say, I will not take more of your time, but will 
simply assure you yiat we bring to you our best wishes and kindest 
greetings. (Applause.) 

The Department Commander: By request. Past Department Com- 
mander Miller will respond to the greetings of the Ladies: 

Past Department Commander Miller: Commander, Ladies and Com- 
rades: The Commander stated that by request, I would respond to the

ladies. Of course you would infer that I requested the Commander to 
have the privilege of doing so. I want it distinctly understood that 
while I am obeying orders, I didn't ask him to do anything of the kind. 
Who could reply to these eloquent words we have listened to? Surely 
not I. I would have selected Comrade Stewart, or our old friend Gen- 
eral Wagner, or any of the other boys that know how to talk to the 
ladies. 

I was thinking yesterday that this is rather a peculiar audience; 
most of us have passed beyond the middle age of life, and some of us are 
.on the other side of tne hill. I see no young men amongst them, and 
surely, I miss the ladies. I feel somewhat encouraged this morning. I 
suppose you remember when you first enlisted, how many of you bade 
good-bye to your sweet-hearts and how the songs would stir you, "When 
this Cruel War is Over," and "Dearest Love, Do You Remember,'* "We 
Shall Meet, But We Shall Miss Him," and many other songs that stirred 
the heart, but you know those days are gone, but notwithstanding the 
fact that you are getting along in years, the example that you men 
have set and are setting will have a wonderful and potent influence 
upon the. coming generation. We are sometimes called the "has-beens," 
but I believe in the "has-beens" because they have achieved their 
wonderful work. Robert Bonner once said that he didn't care anything 
about a "has-been" nor a "will-be." What he wanted was an "izzer," 
and although some people who have not properly read the history of 
our country, may look upon you as "has-beens," I claim that we are 
"izzer's" too, because we saved the nation and our country to-day is 
greater and better because of the "has-beens." We are "will-be's" too, 
because through our example the young men of the future, will emulate 
our history. I am sure we have all been gratified by the sweet words 
that we have listened to by these ladies. What more can we ask than 
to have such eloquent words to tell us what we are and what we have 
been? Why, I tell you, a man isn't worth very much if he doesn't hear 
any one say he is a very good fellow. I wouldn't give a cent for a man 
that hasn't somebody to stand up and speak well of him, and surely the 
words that we have listened to should encourage us to stand up just 
a little straighter, to do just a little better, to try to be a better example 
than ever before, for we surely wish to retain the respect and confidence 
of the Ladies of the G. A. R. and therefore we should not do anything 
that would cause them to blush or to apologize for us, or for anything 
they have said of us. 

We thank you, ladies, for these kind words, and assure you that as 
General Wagner told some of the boys yesterday — I was a little em- 
barrassed — he said "Boys, don't talk to the girls, but look at them." 1 
would like to talk to the girls, but I can't, but will invite you with 
myself to look at them. 

We thank you, ladies; (Applause.) 

Three cheers were moved and given for the delegation of ladies from 
the Woman's Relief Corps and Ladies of the G. A. R. as they passed out 
of the hall.

Dougherty, have been duly elected as members of the Council of Ad- 
ministration for the ensuing year. 

Past Department Commander Sample: If there are no other com- 
mittees to report, I desire to offer the following preamble and resolution: 

Whereas, The meeting of the Department Encampment of the Grand Army of th« 
Republic, held in Reading the present week, has been of rare pleasure to us all, and 
has demonstrated beyond question the advisability of taking the Department Encamp- 
ment to different portions of the State; And Whereas, the citizen's committee and 
the comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic have vied with each other In look- 
ing after our comfort and pleasure, and while it has been twenty-five years since 
we have met here before, the Encampment of 1906 will live In our memory for very 
many, many years. 

Therefore, be It Resolved, That we, the members of this Encampment, unanimously 
do hereby tender our thanks to Mayor E. R. Gerber and the city government of 
Reading, and to the patriotic liberty loving citizens, who Joined hands with the 
comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic, through the Executive Committee, the 
able Chairman of which. Lemon Buch, of Post No. 16, of Reading, is entitled to 
special mention, and made it possible to give us one of the greatest demonstrations

that has occurred in the Department of Pennsylvania; also to Posts 16 and 7S for their 
Individual efforts in looking: after the comfort, pleasure and entertainment of the 
Comrades from all parts of the State. • 

To the press, which by full and accurate reports of the proceedingrs and gatherings, 
have made it easy for all comrades to keep a complete record of the doings of the 
Encampment. 

To the women of Reading for the manner in which they have attended to the 
wants of our wives and daughters who accompanied us on our trip. 

Resolved, That a copy of the foregoing preamble and resolution be furnished the 
Mayor of the City, and to Posts 16 and 76, and that the same be published in the 
daily papers of Reading, and that an engrossed copy of the same be presented to 
Chairman Comrade Lemon Buch. 

The following addition was made to the above resolution: 

Also that we desire to congratulate the citizens of Reading upon 
the splendid demonstration upon the unveiling of the monument to 
our martyred President and Comrade, William McKinley. 

Comrade C. M. Slack, Post 158: Commander, I move you that this reso- 
lution be adopted by a rising vote. 

Motion seconded and the resolutions were adopted by a rising vote. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Commander, I move that we 
now proceed to the selection of the place of our next meeting. Motion 
seconded. 

Comrade James P. Long, of Post 9, Gettysburg: Commander and Com- 
rades, I have been instructed and authorized by Post 9, of Gettysburg, 
to extend a cordial invitation for the next Encampment to be held at 
Gettysburg. I am authorized to say to you that the money has been 
subscribed to defray all necessary expenses, and guaranteed by the 
three banks of Gettysburg. 

Gettysburg is the Mecca of the soldier. It is the Mecca of the tourists 
of the world. It is the greatest marked battle-field in the world. There 
are to-day 550 monuments on that field, and there are no two designs 
alike. They cost a thousand dollars to $50,000 each and together they 
represent an expenditure of over $7,000,000. 

There have been more monuments erected on that field than on all 
the other battlefields of the world combined. 

The battlefield covers an area of twenty-five square miles or 16,000 
acres. There are 467 iron tablets on the field. There are 350 cannon 
mounted on the field, and over a thousand markers. There are five 
iron observatory towers located on the field. It is now, as you all know, 
a National park, under the control of the United States Government, and 
the Government has built fine macadamized roads to enable you to 
make tours over that field. When they have completed the roads now 
laid out, there will be a hundred and five miles of macadamized road- 
way, the finest in the world. 

Comrades, I ask you in behalf of the living who participated in that 
battle; I ask you in memory of our noble dead who so freely gave their

lives to the land they loved, I ask of you in memory of the unknown 
dead who sleep there on Cemetery Hill, that died on that battlefield in 
defense of our flag, I ask of you to come to that historic field. I ask of 
you in memory of the lamented Lincoln who made his famous speech 
at the dedication of those grounds of the National Cemetery, on Ceme- 
tery Hill, when Lincoln said, "Fourscore and seven years ago our 
fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in 
liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. 
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, 
or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. 

"We have met on a great battlefield. We have met to dedicate a 
portion of it as the final resting place of those who here gave their 
lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper 
that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we 
cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, 
living and dead who struggled here, have consecrated it far beyond our 
power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, 
what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. 

"It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated to the unfinished work 
that they have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be 
here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these 
honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they 
here gave the last full measure of devotion; that we here highly re- 
solve that the dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation shall, 
under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the 
people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the 
earth." (Applause.) 

Comrades, in conclusion, feeling assured as I do, that when you pass 
your vote for the next Department Encampment, that you will pass It 
in favor of old renowned, historic Gettysburg, I thank you. 

The nomination of Gettysburg was seconded by Comrade DeLacey, of 
Post 139. 

Past Department Commander Sample: Commander and Comrades, I 
desire at this time to say that the eloquent manner in which Gettys- 
burg has been presented would naturally appeal to all our hearts, but 
I also want to say that the average age of the boys that would go to 
Gettysburg is somewhere in the neighborhood of about sixty-five. We 
leave our comfortable homes and go to Gettysburg for the purpose of 
spending a week. Many of us have been there time, and time, and time 
again. All that Comrade Long has said about the beauties of Gettys- 
burg is true; all of the history that he has related is connected with it, 
and we know it is all true, but the people of Gettysburg ought to re- 
member that the men who go there must have a comfortable bed and 
something to eat. 

I want to say that of all the places that I have ever been in this State, 
and I have been to them all for a quarter of a century, I don't know 
of any town where we have been treated so far as that part of our

comfort is concerned, worse than we have been at Gettysburg, and I 
believe therefore that about once every four years we can go and take 
our children and grand-children, so that they may see that great battle- 
fiela and all that the United States Government has done and is doing 
there to beautify it and make it attractive, and to preserve its history, 
but I believe the rest of the time it is well for us to travel around in 
other parts of the State and carry the glad tidings to Comrades who 
otherwise would not be able to meet with us, going where we can get 
what we certainly all must have, comfort and satisfactory rations 
while there. 

I, therefore, second the nomination made by Comrade Hicks yester- 
day, of the city of Altoona. All us people have come down with a full 
delegation every year. We have to bring our people from the western 
part of the State to attend these Encampments. Now we ought to meet 
somewhere near the central portion of the State where we can be com- 
fortably provided for; where our personal comfort will be looked after, 
and give all the old Comrades an opportunity to stay and look into the 
eyes of the men who attend these annual encampments. 

I, therefore, second the nomination of Altoona. 

It is moved and seconded that the nomination for the next place of 
meeting now close, which was agreed to. 

A rising vote was called for. 

The Department Commander: All in favor of going to Gettysburg 
next year will rise and remain standing until they are counted. 

It was announced that 106 members of the Encampment voted for 
Gettysburg. 

The Department Commander: All those in favor of going to Altoona 
will now please rise. The greater portion of the Encampment then rose, 
defeating Gettysburg by about four to one. Several Comrades who 
had voted for Gettysburg announced that they were satisfied that Al- 
toona had won without a count. 

The Department Commander: 1 declare Altoona selected as the next 
place of meeting according to the vote of the Encampment. 

Fast Department Commander Sample: Department Commander, I 
move you that we now proceed to the installation of officers for the 
ensuing term, and that immediately following that, that the Encamp- 
ment adjourn, and that the tellers take up the vote for delegates to 
the National Encampment as the members pass out. That the tellers 
take their places at the door and receive the tickets so that they may 
be counted at once before we leave the city of Reading. The motion 
having been seconded, it was agreed to.

The Department Commander: We will now proceed with the instal- 
lation of officers, and as Comrade Wagner is present and is the Senior 
Past Commander-in-Chief and Senior Past Department Commander, he 
will install the officers. 

Past Department Commander Wagner: The Encampment will be 
kind enough to come to order. Shall we do this according to the ritual, 
or in the short way? 

Several Comrades: In the short way. 

The Installing Officer: Commander, we are here to instal the officers 
elect for the ensuing year; have they been lawfully elected? 

The Department Commander: They have. 

The names of the officers elect were announced by the Assistant Ad- 
jutant General, as follows: 
Department Commander, J. Andrew Wilt, Post No. 68. 
Senior Vice Department Commander, Andrew Lee, Post No. 20. 
Junior Vice Department Commander, William H. Green, Post No. 94. 
Medical Director, Albert M. Smith, M. D., Post No. 612. 
Department Chaplain, Rev. John W. Sayers, D. D., Post. No. 16. 
The officer of the day presented the officers elect for installation. 

The Installing Officer (Addressing the Commander elect): Are you 
prepared to announce the several appointments on your staff? 

The Department Commander elect: I am. 

The Installing Officer: Please do so. 

The Department Commander elect: We propose to continue the Com- 
rades who have done faithful work. I announce as my Assistant Ad- 
jutant General, Charles A. Suydam of Post 2; Assistant Quartermaster 
General, John L. Grim, Post 21; Department Inspector, Alexander F. 
Nicholas, Post 2; Judge Advocate, D. J. Hornar, Post 210; Medical Di- 
rector, Albert M. Smith, Post 612; Chief Mustering Officer, Charles O. 
Smith, Post 269. 

All presented themselves with the officers elect to be installed, and 
the obligation of their respective offices was administered to them by the 
installing officer. 

The Installing Officer: Comrades, your officers for the ensuing year 
are installed. (Applause.) 

The Installing Officer: At this time the installation of officers is not 
completed. Commander, I move that authority be given the Depart- 
ment Commander to make a proper detail for the installation of the 
Medical Director, Comrade Smith, and also the Council of Administra- 
tion.

272 39TH ANNUAL. ENCAMPMENT, DEPT. OF PENNA., 

Department Commander Wilt: If there are no objections that will be 
so done. 

The Installing Oflacer: It is always customary at this stage of the pro- 
ceedings for the Department Commander to deliver his inaugural ad- 
dress. 

Upon motion, the installing oflBcer, Past Department Commander 
Wagner received the thanks of the Encampment for the eflacient manner 
in which he performed his duty as installing officer. 

Department Commander Wilt: Comrades, there is no time for 
speeches now. As I said last night, if I am spared and have life and 
strength, I will try to blow my bugle throughout the Department of 
Pennsylvania by visiting just as many parts of it as it is possible for 
me to do. 

I wish you would carry back to your Posts the wish of the Com- 
mander of the Department of Pennsylvania that we may go on in the 
good work we have been doing since the close of the Rebellion; that we 
may go on in this good work and let them understand that our work 
is not yet completed. 

Comrades, I will say this to you. We will, as long as we can, keep 
right on living; I am going to say to you right here, when you are fit 
to live, you are fit to die. Now still another wish. Keep right at it. 
We must admit that in fact — we don't want to admit it, but it is a 
fact, that we are somewhat old, although we are still the boys in 
spirit, and let the communities in which you live understand that we 
are not old in spirit and that we are going to continue to live as long as 
we can. 

Wishing you just as long a life as you can have, and the selfish one — 
I want to live long enough to see every one of you buried, and Com- 
rades, I think that is the spirit that we all have, to live as long as we 
can, but in your life and no matter how long you^ live, lefe^ us never 
forget the purpose for which we are organized. Let us show by our 
lives that we are fit to teach the young men and young women who 
will occupy our places, what is meant by loyalty and good citizenship. 

I have sometimes said, and I think it is true, that the love of coun- 
try is something like religion, it is a personal matter; each individual 
performs his part in the community in which he lives, and to a certain 
extent his example permeates it, goes out among the mass and gives us 
the power that we have to-day. 

Now I want to say thank you again and I want to leave with you my 
best wishes, and I hope that we may all have the pleasure of meeting 
again. (Applause.) 

Is there any further business to come before this Encampment? 

The Installing Officer: Commander, I have great pleasure in placing 
upon your left breast over your heart — the Bible says, you know.

that the wise man's heart is on his right hand, but they didn't know 
you at that time, but I have great pleasure in pinning upon your breast 
the badge of your ofllce; the emblem of your oflBce; the gavel, emblem 
of your authority, we haven't got. 

The Installing Oflacer then pinned the badge upon the breasts of the 
Senior and Junior Vice Commanders. 

The Senior and Junior Vice Commanders returned their thanks for 
the honor conferred upon them, whereupon, on motion, the Encamp- 
ment adjourned.
