A. B. Other Officers Chosen and Mnch Business Transacted — Seniority Question Unsettled. A Bousing Reception at Turner Hall —Peneral Palmer Present and Speaks. Commander'* Address. When the Wisconsin department of the Grand Army met in secret session in tbe assembljcbamoer in the capitol Wednesday morning. Commander Upham delivered big address. He said he proposed to address the veterans before him a* comrades, for in this encampment there were neither colone.s nor privates. He then asked, "What constitutes h comrade? An honorable diecuarge and service during the war of tne rebellion. It was greater to be a R Jiimn than a king. la it not greater to bt> a comrade than a brigadier V Is it length of service that gives "out the name of comradt ?" Tne commander said the department has betrayed timidity. Yet he did not mean that. Ihe department of Wisconsin has never been afraid and never will be afraid; but some comrades in this department have been afraid, and afraid of what? That an organization of only 180 shall con* trol ov<;r 14,000. Djes that look reasonable? It reminds one of an ant and an elephant walking across a forty-acre lot, ana the elephant is afraid ne will be crowded. Ttmt is not good sense in the elephant. cost of subsistence $65.

From all quarters of the globe come almost in conjunction two tales of woman's iuSdel- ity, and of bloody homicide by an outraged husband. It was but a few days ago that an American killed a French gallant in his wife's chamber at a foreign fashion resort, and now comes the story of v he shooting of an English swell in far cfi Japan by another American whose honor had been insulted, Scarcely a day passes when Una old species of crime is not reported here, tuero or elsewhere; and when it is not of this peculiar nature, the horror of a hinging, the burning of a rupist at the stake, tbe-midnight murder by Ihe surprised houte breaker, infanticide by the "lovely woman who stoops to folly,'' or the shocking recital of the blood> events of (ho prizi ring are subjects the news of which is flashed from every part of the globo. The world may not b< growing more wicked, but the character of the prei-s of the prefent day is neverthe- '')«B enough to make one believe it. Every post in this department is a judge of its o«n proceedings within tbe rules of the G. A. K. Thu sending out of unauthorized and unofficial circulars with only the name of a post attached is reprehensible and not iu the inteiest ot accord and harmony; but every post has a right to send a circular signed by iis adjutant and post commander when so given by tbe post. But no post should allow its name to be uaed at the will of any comrades of the post, whether it is for good or evil, and tne post should be the one to discipline the comrades, and not the department headquarters. Anotner element looked gratifying. Bryant reported ut-Oshkosh a year ago the department at the "top LOtch." It has gone one notch better, having 14,443 members, tnough 776 have come in uuuer tbe canvas, the inspector general giving a greater number than are reported to tne adjutant .general, and who do pay per cupitu tat. Acljutiint's Report. The report of Assistant Adjutant Or ay was read. The following austracts are taken from, it: Eight new posts have been organized since you were installed, March 16, 1891, viz., at B»zel Green, North Murceliori, Florence, Colona Station, Sharon, Ful River, Glenwood and Cadott. Post 183, at Cjlfttx, inn become extinct by voluntary surrender of its charter. The number of posts in the department is 272, a net gain of seven for the year. The membership, Den. 31, 1890. was 13,775 and one i ear later was 14,413, cuumiug 767 on the suspended liso not rep-jrtbU to the adjutant general but included in the inspector general's report. The membership of the department now is 3.619 greater than it was five years ago. The amount expanded for charity during the year Wr.s $3,457.71. Jt has been suggested and is considered worthy of submission to this encuipnient that in sparsely settled districts posts establish pickets where three or four comrades reside too far away to attend its meetings regularly; that a sergeant of each picket be appointed by the post commander, through whoru the pieket may report to ihe post its returns and make culls for supplies, aid, etc. A large number of those desiring tho comradeship of the order who are only kept out by reason of their distance from any post would thus be mustered into the ranks. These comrades of the pickets could meet with the post once each year and be detailed to observe memorial day and attend to the of comrades i» their variovw localities. The Waupacu Homo. One of the most interesting reports of the entire session was that submitted by Hon, J. Hi. Woodnorth, OHO of the trustees of the Wuupaoa home. This report set forth that the home wiiS-never in mosu prosperous condition, but it bad been discovered that the $3- per week per in.- matH paid by the state was not oxkq,ua,te. to support the institution with needed repairs and the outlay on buildings. It is proposed to ask the legislature for a. contingent fund which cjn. be uaed for these purposes. During, the year there was spent on permanent improvements 125,000'of the $50,000'appropriated by I ho legislature of 1891. Regarding the rumors of tuoublo at the home the trustees ask any one who.thinks the inmates are not well treated to make- a personal investigation. The Woman's Riliaf corps-is found to be a most valuable auxiliary in, tho wo*k at the home. It has turnishadi carpets for cottages and bas eonstsucted and cotii- plttely tuinished a chapel at a, cost ot &U50. Tho h&me has received mush praise, from those who have visited there. For instance. Gen. W. Averill, inspector of Rtato wul mvlio-aal homes, says of it: "I find no, home in the United States better managed or where &j few mistakes havi been msde in the general comfort and convenience, or where there is more to show tor money expended than at Waupaca." Mr. Woodnorth said: "Such endorsement from those so competent to iod«e is very pleasing to us and hardly agrees with statements made one year ago. Ot the many ctuel things said ot us and our home at that time you ure well aware, but in almost every instance they came Irum a sourca that knew nothing of our home and fi'oui those who never caw it We will say to them as did He whim the (jood Book tells us about, 'Forgive them for they know not what they do.' " The cost of maintaining the home for the year was $25 304. The cost of subsist ,,,.. w. r .— for the year was $144 84, an average pet week of $2 78. The number of pensioners in the home is 110, and the average pension per month is $9.49. Tne number of inmates is 214, of whom 146 are males and 68 females. The average age of inmates is 62 years and of the inmate'- who are wives, 48; tbe widow in* ma'es, 60. The average age of all inmates is 60 years. There were four deaths during the year and the per cent, of deaths »o population is two and fourteen fifty- fifths, the smallest death rate of any state or national home. A. number of comparisons are given For instance the average per capita cost of maintenance in all of the state institu tions is $168 66, while at tbe veterans home it was only $144 84. Tbe cost of maintenance in the national home as averaged from the time of organization to.tbe date of last report was {169.33 nearly $25 per capita more than at Wau paca. C. C. Washburn Pose. Ou the qnection of post seniority, Capt. Nye, of Milwaukee, presented the Berlin post side in a minority report of the council of administration. A good deal ol °zcitement followed and, finally, a motion fn table the minority report was carried. Notice was at once given that the subject would be call?d up this morning. As it requires a two-thirds vote to do this it is quite likely the report will remain tabled. The Campfire. Soon after 7 o'clock Wednesday evening The assembly chamber was crowded w_ith veterans and members of their families, and the large audience amused itself with the singing of old war songs until the hour for the j program to begin. Shortlv after 7:30 o'clock commander-in-chief Upham uppeared on the rostrum accompanied by Lieutenant Governor Jon is and Mayor Rjgers, and announced that the exercises would be opened by an appropriate selection by the University Glee club. The club was obliged to respond to a hearty encore. Col. Upham then said that it seemed to many of the soldier bpvs like coming home to be again in Madison. All day long they had been looking for th'- housekeeper and at length they had found him—in this case it was him ins'ead of her—in the person of Lieutenant Governor Jonas, who wonld deliver an address of welcome. Gov. Jones said that he had been for a few days on the sick-list, but he was glad to be sufficiently recovered to report for duty. He was glad to be able to welcome to the capital of the state the G. A. R. No other organization had such an interest for every man, woman and child I 'he commonwealth. The reison was pi Had it not be^n for the devotion ot|l members in tbe hour of need, thtre woof now be no United States of Arrencaf under whose protection the state of Wisconsin today exists. Turning to personal reminiscence, the speaker said thit he arrived in New York during tbe war, coming dii*ci from England, where t'nere was much sympathy with the south. Sx>n af-er he landed he saw for the first time a fqtsad of the blns- co ited defenders oi the Coi'e-i Jitate; and his heart thrilled as it had nerer done before. Only obligations that he had assumed before crossing the ocein prevented him from at ODCS j lining the ranks. It ririrbi be an im pious thought, but he bai a m>s v . wished that there might be anoiber chacc-s to save the union, in order ttat be might personally aid in the jdoriosis work. The commander reinaiked that it was a remarkable exhibit, of '"gall" toii-vite the mayor of Mor-bfield to e-jtae into tbe assembly chamber and introduce to an audience gathered there tfap mayor of Madison. Nevertheless be toos pleasure ia pert'drraine that duty. Mayor Rogers said" that it was his of flcial duty to welcome the encampment to Madison, but it was also a. persona privilege. Theie was DO reason why th mayor £of anv city might not he glad t welcome the Grand Army of the Republic Mr. Rogers touched briefly on the beroi labors of the boys from '61 to '65, an said that if the nation could be intruste. to their care for those fourlnng years, h could certainly resign Madiaon to the! keeping for three days. The Grace Church choir sang M Country, 'Tis of -Thee, the audienc being invited to join in the chorus. Miss Belle- Flesh gave a spirite recitation of a war poem that was fre q.ueutly interrupted by applause an called forth an ovation* at tbe elos«, I response to the encore she gave a rendi tion of an anecdote of Napoleon and drummer boy.. Tiie choir,, assisted by the veterans Battle Hymn of the Republic. In responding to the addresses of wel wind" to respdnd fco a tomultneuB encote\ the University Banjo club, led as of old by Mr. George Mam, played a selection and met with the hearty applause which it was wont to receive in Madison. Col. Gray neifc gave some of bis es periences at early encampments. People come to a campfire and sit hour after hour, because the story of the war has a personal interest for each of them. The country is better for the great conflict. The speaker urged the comrades never to breathe a word against the militia. They would rally around tbe flag as loyally as did the yonng men of 30 years ago. The boys were begged not to say anything against the veterariSj no matter how much they might think could be criticised, The colonel eulogized the Wau paca home and incidently got in some severe thrusts at the policy of the national institution at Milwaukee. Comrade Pier, of Milwaukee, was presented as the originator of the first state reunion in Milwaukee, in 1880. He told several entertaining stories. Chaplain Lozier having recovered his composure, was again called upon and indulged in some amusing personalities and closed with the recitation, What Did Them Privates Do. QAn overflow meeting was held in the senate chamber, with Comrade A. G. Weise_rt, of Milwaukee, presiding. Ac ine Governor Jonas and Mayor Roberts delivered addresses of welcome. Cols. B. F. Briant,.of Li Crosse, and J A. Watrous, of Milwaukee, 'wore happy in brief remarks. Grace Church choir sung war songs to the delight of tbe great assemblage. Miss Belle Flesh recited Sheridan's Ride and John Burns at Gettysburg, and received enthusiastic applause. Chaplain Lozier, of Iowa, indulged in happy remarks. Major Roper, of Illinois, sang an old army song which delighted the veterans. Capt. Carlson, of Milwaukee, made a few remarks and sang a song. Capt. Henry Frisk, of Milwaukee, entertained the "boys" for a few moments. A selection by the University Banjo club was decidedly entertaining. Col. Pier and Albert De Lner, of Milwaukee, spoke briefly. *. A happy time followed, shaking hands and exchanging stories for half an hour, when the gathering adjourned. Tbe Wifconsin department of the Grand Army did well Thursday in electing Coanncey B. Welton, of Madiaon, Us commander. Or course the Capital city looks upon the result as a great victory. The full list ol officers elected Thursday is as follows: Department commander—Chavmcey B. r elton, of Madison. enior vice commander—P. S. Fenton, ence waa $11,180, making the per capita come Commander Upham s-iid he felt lik the servant girl riding i» her master' carriage—sho- wished she aould stand on ;tbe sidewalk and see herself goby. H felt lost, and< like other lost men he hm .travelled in a circlet eoaiing back tn the 'city where long ago he hadstepped off th train, a raw;-honed youth, and marched t old- Camp. Randall. He- mentioned th names of Comrades Fail-child, Oakle, apd Philljufl, and said that Madison men, aulike Richard C'raur de- Lion, with his two-handed sword, had one hand and two hearts. Iin conclusion he introduced Col Watrous as a man who had found the fountain ®f perpetual youth. Col. Watrous said that he should speak mainly of the csmradt'S- who were gone. Madison* was a great place to tnru bacit tbe memories of Wisconsin soldiers, especially those-who. had served at Camp Randall. The speaker took up each of tbe commanders oft the Wisconsin regiments and toid of tlie wounds, or death of each. 1'he rid spldie*H K bowed great interest as the nuuilifir na.mes were-recouvr.od. Dtr. Carlsoa, who followed, S;i\d that the reason wiiv <»he offices, wiiow names had just been read had beori killed, were because they were its the from:.

Mayor Roper, of llockforo, was intro duced with the remark that as old soldiers there was no feeling ot state rights. The mujor gave a dialeut recitation and in response to applause sang a song "written for the occasion," While waiting for the ncx'; speaker the atr led in singing Marcbing Thro' Georgia. Chaplain Lozier, ol Iowa, who had been speaking in the senate chamber, was brought in and said that big guns—referring to averdupois—ought to be allowed to cool off before being fired twice. He managed, however, to keep the audience in a roar of laughter for some time with ij Junior vica commander — S. H. Tubbs, ofSjperior. Medical director— Dr. Dantley, of Milwaukee. Chaplin— M. Wells, of Richland Center. BiisliMiss Transacted. When the Wisconsin department of the 3rand Army reassembled in the capitol Tnursd-jy morning, a motion was made and carried to call from the table the ma- jirity and minority reports on the senority uf posts. Considerable excitement followed on the question whether the C. C. iVaahburn post or the Berlin post should- be considered first; and while the discussion was going on tbe commander announced that the hour for taking up the special order— the election of officers — had'arrivrfd. The post matter was therefore dropped 1 . The presentation of jum o s fordepart- m*nt commander being- in order, the name of Dr. Carlson, of Milwaukee, v-as predated by Gen. Bryant,. of La Crosse.

The question ot thn veterans M.

A committee of three was ordered appointed to collect the personal historiei of soldiers for preservation, said committee to confer with the State Historical society, posts, corps, camps, etc., and report at the next encampment. A resolntion was introduced favoring the formation of an auxiliary body to be known as the G. A. R. Reserve corps. This was laid on the table almost unanimously. A resolution waa presented from Wai worth county po4, Elklofn, asking the department to petition congress to allow Mrs. Margaret Judge a pension of $8 a month. She lost hei 1 husband in J856 and was dependant upon a son for support. This son enlisted and went through the war. He is dead and she is without support. Thanks for Madison, On motion, a vote of thanks to the people of Madison was adopted, the entire assemblage standing. After a great deal of dUcuwion of a rather animated character, L \ Crosse was chosen as the place for the next annual stato encampment. Milwaukee made a great fight for the honor. A Conference. Representatives of the C. C. Washburn post and those of the Berlin post held a conferenae during the afternoon yesterday. The C. C. Washburn post was very conciliatory in its manner. To put an end to any controversy at this time, it accorded to the Berlin posh the honor of leading the column at the next national encampment at Washington, D. C.; but at the next Wisconsin department meeting, which will be at La Crosse, the question of priority will comR up for decision. The Reception. Every effort had been made to restrict the attendance at the banquet Thursday to those legitimately entitled to gain admission, but neverthelets Turner hall was more than crowded. While waiting for the arrival of General Palmer the audience was entertained by a varied program. Chaplain Lozier was called upon and recited Why 1 Joined the G. A. R. General Mark H. Barnum, of Wausau, was introduced and'delivered an oration on the glorious labors of tho union army. Mr. W. W. Young and tbe University Glee club sang Tenting on the Old Camp Ground. Miss Ada Sumner recited a patriotic selection. The next number was Tramp, Tramp, Tramp sung by the Grace Church choir. Comrade Phil. D. Cheek told one of hU characteristic stones. Another song followed by Eirl Da MOP and the University Glee club, which called forth an encore. Commander Upham announced the arrival of Commander in Chief Palmer, who was greeted by a general rising of the audience and three cheers. General Palmer said it was asking much of a man to expect him to travel all day and after arriving at Madison Iste in the evening to make a speech. He told an amusing story in connection with his reasons for his delay in reaching the city. The general said it was hurd to travel and f.peak but the surroundings furnished an insoirafcion. He felt that be was not elected to his present position because of any distinguished achievements during or since the war. He was simply on" of the rank and file who from '61 to '65 devoted l hirnselves to tue cause of the country. Ewry one of them was as loyal as the tna.n who happened to stand above him in official position. The soidiprs of thp union did not commit depredationi. This was never impressed on the speaker more than when he wa-i forced to cross the to seek treatment in a ' Paris hospital and wit- nppsed tbe devastation of tbe Franco- Prussian war. The gen era! referred to general order No. 4, which has eausid 10 much comment. He believed nations, like plants,, could be preserved by proper treatment. When the young men of the south said to the conf -i' soldiers, "The stars and bars are to you a memory,, but to us an inspiration—we will yet redeem tbe lost eauss of our fathers," he thought ic was time for every loyal man, whether_he fought for or against the union, t&rise in- condemnation, lie had been accused 1 of oeing a politician. He was such in the sense that he wanted to see tho nation in hands where it was safe. After TPeeivtng many press notices and anonymous letters from the south he received an invitation to visit the department of Georgia. His friends advised htm not to go, or at least to take a body- guurd; but he replied that four years' experience had taught him that the southerners were no cowards, while men who write anonymous communications were usually not very brave. He anticipated no trouble and went to tho encampment with nnly a single aide. On arriving he met a number of ex- eon IeJei-ate*. the lowest rank represented being that of colonel. After some conversation he spoke of the tirma of surrender at Appomattox, and asked if a war ever e'osed with fairer offers to the vanquished. He then asked if they considered it good taste to flaunt in the face of a visitor from the northern army a rebel flag, and what good it would do to make new flags and use them to incite sectional prejudice among the young iho rtiplies that he received were what he bad expectfd and he was assured that the rue inwi of tbe south were glad to greet r m \,1"u d i 11 ?* 1 * U wa8 not the men who fought bat the men who talked that made si-cuonal trouble.

Department Oomman3er-elect ^, was presented and excused himaelt f rom speaking more than a faw words of wel- cone, and asking united support in the work of the coming year.

' The audience cnllad on Coaplain „„ for the song Old Saady, but he first responded by proposing three cheers tor MM Woman's Relief corps and called forth Chautauq'ia salute from the ladiea and waving of hats from the men for General Palmer in honor of order No. 4. Thii was followed by three cheers for thecom-ll mander. The chaplain then called on tbe Glee club to assist him in singing Old Snady, which was wildly applauded. Mrs. Helen Puffer, of Ihe Woman's Re-, lief corps, -was called forward and told of I the growth of the ladies' organization, Mrs. Charity Ru-ik Craig, of Milwaukee, followed and said that the Womau'i! Relief sqips was proud of! its organization because it was connected with the Grand Army of the Republic. The Glee club rendered 'Tis Drill. Hon. M. R Doyon, representing the Sons of Veterans, said a fiw words in behalf of the younger or_der. Comrade Carlson said he bad recovered from tbe wounds received in the conflict ol thomorning and was again ready to fight for the Grand Army of the Republic. The Glee club gave another Mrs. L>ui*e C. Williams, of Oconomo- woe, president-elect of the Woman's Belief corps, was presented to the audience, but waa indisposed and did not speak. Chaplain Lozier, nfter a few preparatory rfltnarki", sang with the assistance of .'he Gjee club, Oh Guard that B inner While* We Sleep, This closed the regular program; but it was announced that sup- 1 per was still being served below, and that if those who intended to take morninp trains wished to remain in the hall they could do so and entertainment would be provided for them. Caaplain Lizier took charge of the large after-meeting and intromced Miua Mamie Cholvin, who recited Bay Billy in a manner that was warmly corurnendtd by thn chaplain and the audience. Mr. John Donovan and others followed. Woman's Relief Corps.
