C. Wiener, Proprietor of the Square dealing Golden Eagle.
It will not be over-statmjr
matter in the lcat to say thai the
inter-state reunion held in Red Cloud
last week was a success. Good will
and harmony prevailed throughout,
and a general good time and a hearty
and endearing fellowship obtained
among the veterans aud their friends,
with nothing to break their felicity
of iutercour.se nor mar the success of
-iS the varied and entertaining program.
The reunion committee to whom the
, success of the encampment is largely
due, is deserving of great credit, and
commander J. L. Miller and adjutant
Chas. Wiener deserve special mention
for the efficiency with which their re
spective duties were peformed. It
was the verdict of many s.tldiers that
Camp Phil Sheridan was the best ap
pointed camp for a reunion they had
cvor visited. Certainly with its four
or five hundred tents, immense pavil
lion pleasure hall, booths and other
conveniences, electric lights and
street railway, and a level virgin sod
for a floor, and its nearness to the bus
ncss center of the citywith furnished
fuel and feed, and with the weather
cut and driod for the occasion, it pre
sented attractions that elicited favor
blc comments from the thousands in
As the realities of the war are
gradually rccccdinp in the vista of
the past and victorious ranks of the
boys in blue are being daily thinned by
the ravages of time, these gatherings
arc gaining a standing and character
commensurate with the. memories
they revive, and the deeds they eulo
gize. It will be impossible for us to
give even a synopsis of the various
programs or the sanies of the many
who participated therein, but must
confine our report to salient features
only. The principal speakers were
Senator A. S. Padd ck. Congressman
W. A. McKeighan, Paul Vandcivcort
and C.pt. C. E. Adams, of Superior.
Among the pirticipints and camp fire
orators from abroad were Gen. A. II.
Bowen and Gen. Pilworth of Hastings,
Colonel Gage of Franklin, who pre
sided so acceptably over all meetings
in the pavillion, Dcpt. Com. Jos.
Teeter, Col. O. II. Coulter of Topeka,
and Capt. Church, of Kansas, Sen.
Vice-Corn, of this reunion. The parts
undertaken by the Women's Kolief
Corps of this city were material to the
success of the reunion. "The Tennes
see Scout" produced four evenings iu
the opera hall, was under the auspices
of the S. of A, and lead bj Capt. Dobbs
of Garnet, Kansas, supported by an
able corps of home actors. The music
for the occasion was furnished prin
cipally by the Superior cornet band,
the Daisy Stoddard band, Bottom's
martial band, and Cozad's Bed Cloud
?. dram Corps, each o' which will be
more fully noticed in connection with
the band contest. Vocal music was
furnished by the Josie igou club and
individual singers from home and
abroad. The Gangbio band of Cowles,
consisting of father and five sons, the
youngest being only ten years of age,
enlivened many an interim of wait
ing with their lively straius. The
grand parade, Thursday, was partici
pated in bj all the dignitaries and
4- organizations of the reunion and the
city, including the Bed Cloud fire
department in uniform, and citizens
in teams ahd a foot.
The Program for Friday afternoon
was ably carried out by the Officers
and members of the W. It. C.
The livelist entertainment, how
ever, was furnished by the baua con
tests Friday morning. First came the
Daisy Stoddard Band of Bcpublican !
City, consisting of eight members,
three gills and five boys. One-half the
members belonging to the Stoddard
family, two girls Mirtie and Daisy,
and two biys Bode and Italph. Ethel
and Budd Gillespie, Fred Hunt, Tuba
and C. H. Dorty, bass drummer, com
prise the list Mr. Bode' Stoddard is
leader, and his sister, Mirtie the solo
Cornet player. The band had only
bee.i organiz 'd six weeks, but since
its organization their practice has
Their first selection was the
"Dream of Peace" by Bipley, and
their second pltcrnating with the Su
perior Cornet Hand, was "Fascination"
Baritone solo, by Barnhousc, the solo
being carried by the leader. Both se
lections were rendered in faultless
time and wi'H beautiful "expression,
and with the case and vigor and con
fidence characteristic of this band.
The Superior cornet band followed.
This band consists of twelve members
in uniform, with F. A. Scherinzer
leader, and Harry Graves, Henry
Vollbihr, CSteeiiSon, II. C. Volts, C.
B, Edenfield, John Hopper, CCha
Pasons, Walt Eastman. Walter Steven
son, Will Foster and B. G. Wright
members. Their first selection was
the "Helena Waltzes," by Pettee and
the second the "Kamwah Overture,"
by Barnhousc. The Superior bojs
presented a fine appearance and were
expert in marching. Their first for
mation, an ellipse, made against thcai
by placing part of their number with
backs to the audience. By crowding
the platform, their second formation
was semicircular aud perfect.
The Daisy Band received the heait
icst applause and finally the award of
first prize from the judges. Next
came the Martial Baud Contest, each
band to render three selections in suc
cession. First came Bottom's nurtial band
of Buskin, consisting of five members
in uniform with John Bottom leade
and his two brothers and nephew F.
X. Bottom, It. C. Bottom, N. E. Bot
tom and L. E. Speace members.
The father Mr. J. C. Bottom is their
color bearer. Their selections wre,
the "Whipporwill," "Pnuty Maid"
and "British Quickstep" reniered in
artistic style and all parts m per
fect harmony, the fifeing being ex
ceptionally fine. r
Lastly came the Red Cloud drum
ccrps of eight members, with L. A.
Haskins leader, and six brothers
and a nephew members as
follows: William, Harry, David,
Charley, Simeon and Arthur
Cozad and Henry Cozad Jr. Their
selections were, "The Picnic." "Our
Girls are Isie Yet" and "Yankee
Doodle" with change of time. Their
placing wjs fine throughout and their
drumming was superlatively so, and
in the las' selection so much enthusi
asm and skill were displaced that the
audience was carried by storm. How
erer a few points were scored against

them by the judges, out side of t.io
mu-iic proper and Bottom's Martial
Band was awarded the first pirze.
Bottom's Band also 'took the first
prize in this reunion held in Superior,
ltst year. Henry Cozad Sr , the
father of the Cozad boys, took first
premium as Tenor drummer in Chic
ago in 1SG1.
After short exercises Friday even
ing the encampment broke up and
thus ended the third annual reunion.
From a clipping from a Denver
paper, we learn that Albert Robin
son, a brother of C. D. Robinson
cashier of the Blue Hill bank, was
shot and killed while playing a fjsoeial
game of cards at Denver this week
He was a married man, 29 years old,
but has no children. His father and
mother live at Hastings, Nebraska,
and a brother, ('. D. Robinson, is
cashier of a bank at Blue Hill, Neb.
A coroner's inquest will he held at
10 o'clock this morning and the funer
al will probabl occur Wednesday.
Hcwcll, Bowles and Ilaydcn were
taken into custody, but were released
on bojnl of $o00 each.
In our lust issue we ommited to
state that the citizens committee of
the reunion did their work well. We
alse stated that "there was a feint
suspicion in the minds ol some, that
the commi iico had placed names on
the program of parties who were not
expected to be present" this was an
unintended thrust, as all who had
been advertised promised to be pre
sent. If the statement should go un
corrected it would be a manifest injus
tice to the committee who worked dil
igently for the success of the reunion.
