W. P. Devire. of the The Commission feel that Ihe time has come when guides should be licensed through the War Department, Especially is this the case as the older and experienced guides are passing away and their successors discuss the phases of the battle at variance with its history and, from, their statements, it r.-ould appear that they had the privilege of the views of the conamanders- n-ch:ef of the armies here engaged. "A system has grown up with many of them that deprives the visitors of a greater portion of the field and rarely, from "die statistics gathered, does the tourist, under the understanding that ippears to exist, pass over more than l~ of che 2S miles which is requiste for a conception of the battle. 'There are honorable exceptions to his course in the veteran soldiers who ccompany visitors over the Seld- "This in the public interest should e remedied and a guide, after an ex- minarion, and by a. proper board, be icensed without exacting-a fee. and in jvent of deception and imposition this icense and badge be revoked. "Photographers are licensed by au- hority of the War Department with- jut charge and assigned each week to .rations on the 5e!d- Complaints as to mposition or excessive charges have oassed and They take pride in the ·naintenance of the assignment rule .nd their reputations for fair dealing with the public." That a greater number of guards should be placed on the avenues is =ta"ted in the renort which recounts the public highways than it now has, explained the necessity of making the bonds. -Pennsyivania pays Si.41 per ton !
