Yesterday morning ttic thoughts of the occu
pants of Camp John A. Lo'an seemed hope
ful of a pleasant day. They were not disap
pointed in so fur as thu absence or Indication
of rain was concerned. liut the sun shone
with ( treat intensity , and if it had not been
for a pleasant brcu/.u Iroin thu wust the heat
would have beun oppressive. ( ! r ; at us It was ,
It intencred with neither man , woman or
child In the performance of business or pur
suit of pleasure1. Quartermaster Clarkson
worked as If the temperature was not the
subject of the general consideration ; the
commander and his aides busied them
selves with their wonted devotion ,
and the fakirs , hucksters and shopmen lost
no opportunity to make an advantcgeous
In the tents the heat was experienced most ,
nnd those In them lost no time In raisin * thu
walls to admit Of all the friendly breeze
which came their war. Many ot the veter
ans were reminded by the heat of the scorchIng -
Ing suns of thu south nnd there wuru but few
of them who were wlllln- admit that they
felt annoyed by thu unexpected visitation.
Among those who sulTured most were the of
ficers of thu state organisations , who yes
terday in the various state headquarters
opened thulr book by way of preparation tor
the roster of ttio present year.
The tents In which they held
their levees wcru crowded with
veterans the greater part of the day and the
atmosphere , as aconsequcncu , was at times
almost stilling. Hands without number
paraded the stieets or stood In the immedi
ate vicinity ol thulr headquarters and played
by thu hour to thu delectation of sweltering
circles of comrades , who between tunes eavu
expression to commendation of the muscular
and long-winded performers.
About 4 o'clock in thu afternoon , the breeze
became cooler. Dark clouds formed In thu
uoith , and Increased In darkness as they
slowly moved inward the camp. The
wind veered to the east and thu
clouds were wafted toward thu west ,
where they piled In dense masses threatening
to burst into oceans of rain. Thu sun , tor a
time , was obscured , and when at length It re
asserted ItSilf , the black clouds spud toward
thu city , leaving a sunset splendor which was
admired by thousands of the occupants of
the cairp. It wns thoiuht that a fall of rain
had been avoided , but whim the floating
masses readied thu city thu storm hroku with
considerable violence. Thu wind asserted
Itself for about ten minutes and swept the
streets with torrents of rain. At the camp
thu severity of the storm was not
felt , although .the rain and wind
weio lor n short time , the
masters ot the situation. They soon ex
pended their force , and the inmates of the
camp , under thu light of a brilliant moon ,
Immediately iravu themselves up to all kinds
of legitimate pleasme. To-day thn grounds
will bu In good condition and everybody
feels that tha short-lived tempestuous visita
tion was ptodiictne of thu bunellclul cll'ect of
cooling thu heated atmosphere.
Thuuaily tialns , and indeed these up to

At three o'clock there was a public meet
ing in thu MHiaro in front of headquarters ,
which , notwithstanding the Intense heat , was
largely attended. It was occasioned by the
appointment of Governor Faiichlld to make
a speech. Commander ItusseH called the
assumblagu to order and bald.
Comrades and Fellow Citizens : Wo are
hero this afternoon to meet ttio Commander
In Chief , ( Falrchlld. It Is very
warm and 1 will taku none of your time in
lutioduclug the general.
As General Falrchlld made his appearance ,
hu was received with applause. Attcr an
entertaining Introductory , thu general spoke
ns follows upon thu subject of soldiers' re
lief :
The work of the ( i. A. It. Is outside of fun
and trolle. Wu bind ourselves by a solemn
oath that no comrade shall want for bread ;
no comrade's wife or widow shall want tor
bread : no comrade's orphan child shall want
tor bread : and please ( ! od , we have almost
literally kept that bond that wo made with
our comrades and with one another ; to-day ,
comrades and yon have been compelled
every year of j our life , to put your hands
In jour pockets for sweet charlt > 's sake.
Last year the posts of the Grand Army of
thu Republic expended over 820ooo for
charity and about an equal sum was ex
pended in private llfu without the order and
thu woman's relief over SM.OOO , making over
half a million dollars expended tor the relief
of our disabled comrades. 1 want to ask
you , Is not that a good record for us ?
( Voices , Yes , yes ) . Wo am not asking thu
government of the United States for
iliikt which wo will not do our
selves. We simply us ) : the govern
ment of the United States , for which
\ > e fought , to stand between us and our com
rades that are so far disabled as to bo Inca
pacitated for labor , and we have for years
ml years asked congress to grant this one
thing for the disabled men. Kvery man , so
far disabled as to bo Incapacitated for manual
labor , shall be given a small pittance of 8114
- * . per year , § W per month to keep him out of
> ( he poor house. For that , comrades nnd
commander , we have been charged that dur
ing these last few months by people ot tins
Kuutry With being treasury raiders. It has
bcon publicly stated and publicly printed
that thu sooner this prcal ( irand Army ot the
Hupuhllc dies the better thu pcoulu will like
It and the burden will bo removed from them.
What would you do with a man that uttered
such sentences as those ? ( Voices : "Uane
him ! " ) ' You hang a decent yellow dog. I
would not honor him that mucn. ( Ap
plause. ) 1 would not dishonor n do ;
by putting such a man up beside him.
( Laughter , ) 1 have some respect for a de
cent yello.v doi : , but no respect for a man
that talks that sort of thing. That is all wo
have asked for twenty years , and what wo
will continue to ask until the government of
the United States will do It , and not men
only who aru disabled In the service In the
army , but men that have become disabled
since. Wo say , and I think wu say no moro
than the truth , that the government of the
people of the united States of America can
not and should not let a man that served two
months or more In the Union army be an
Inmate of a common pau ) > ur bouse and re
lieved by public charity. ( Applause. ) It Is
a shame and a disgrace to tnls nation if they
allow that to continue , 1 think the govern
ment of the United States ought to tike care
of all the soldiers that are to
e taken care of. You have soldiers'
ml orphans' homes In every state ,
'hoy ought to bo turned over to the govern-
ncntofthe United States. You did not
ight for Nebraska , you did not light for WIs-
lousln , Ohio or New York. You fought for
ho government of the United States and the
great noi th west. You fought tor the whole
country without regard to statu line' , and
that brings mo to thu oath , gentlemen , In our
jreed. Hecauso wu fought for the whole
union , wu believed our allegiance was to the
ivholu union and not to any state , and wo
; each loyalty to the union to our children
and they In turn to their children that our
loyalty is not to Nebraska , Ohio or Pennsyl
vania , or any other state , but to the union ,
and they shall never , by any means , turn
thulr backs upon the Hag of the union at the
command of the state authoiltles. It makes
us cltl/ens of the United States of America ,
and citizens ot thusUtn of Nebraska , but of
the United States llrst and last IncludlngNc-
braska. ( Applause..That ) Is thu loyalty , com
rades , that wu teach to our children and we
aru teaching this in capital letters fif-
'cen feet long and every man can read
hem. ( Applause. ) There is no qiiallllcatlon ;
t Is slmolv loyalty to thn United States of
America. 1 know thuy tell us that all people
are loyal , but 1 doubt it a little. ( Apulause. )
lint tills lesson of loyalty should be taiuht teach
ach of our children. No man was ever too
patriotic In this country ot ours. There are
nen that teacli loyalty to the state bf their
) lrth or adoption , and men who say that
state-rights doctrines are right and that the
south had a right to secede. That is simply
scotched in this man. Our children arc to
take our places , and I want them taught the
same doctrines and keep It scotched. I want
the sons of veterans to follow us and teach
their children to sing the same songs of loy
alty throughout all generations. ( Applause. )
You have heard from some of these men
what the United States government could
do. Wo USK nothing for patriotism. The
man would bo a low-born
scoundrel that would ask pav
for his Every man Is above
that. Wo simply ask that the contract made
by the government of the United States with
the armv when you entered service , shall bo
kept. Thuy told us that no man that en
tered the union army should ever want or be
come a public trust as n pnuper. if misfortune
fell to him. Von remember that and 1 re
member It. Nor that ho should ever bo the
nmate of a poor house , and no orphan child
should bo thd Inmate of a poor house. I
want the contract kept ( A voice , that's
right. ) 1 heard but a few days ago that thu
contract had been more than kept. 1 declare
.t . has not and thu same article read in this
iv.w. 1 cannot quotu thu language if you
will excuse me. ( Hero the speaker took off
ills necktie and him , ' It on the railing , and
then took oil' tils collar. ) There Is not as
much starch In that collar as there was In ono
of those fellows that went to Canada in 1801
( Loud applause. ) ( Hero the speaker took
oil ills coat ) I I bog your pardon 1 couldn't
help it. ( That's all right , eo on. )
Everything that my coat him ? on Is
butter than money. The man that will make
that answer Is a man whose heart was not In
accoid with the cause for which you fought.
( A voice. That's right ; ono is In the presi
dential chair now ; if anybody wanted to
shoot him ho would go a-lishlng. ) Let mo
make this caution to you. comrades , never
opan your moths at any'time or place where
any man can by any possibility found the
charge or possible charito that you have
spoken disrespectfully of the piesident of thu
United States. ( Voices , Good , good. ) When
it is the propur timu to talk , and there are
seasons when every man has a right to open
his mouth , then open them and lot all the
woila kilo * what you think. ( Loud ap
plause. ) liut when wu meet as Grand Army
mon in reunion aa we are , a portion of tills
L'ruat on-'anl/.atlon , let us keep our mouths
.sealed. ( Anplauso.
Governor Thayer and General Mandorson
made short speeches which were well re-
Hrnto Hosters.
Yesterday , for thn first time , the veterans
met , to hold their annual statu meetings.
Thesu were held In tents spacially marked to
distinguish the states represented by mem
bership at this reunion.
The lirst of thesu visited by thu UEE re-
poiter was that of Iowa. It was pretty well
patronUud , although the number of names
could not be determined. The names were
written In small books , each of thu latter
being Intended for the names of the survivors
at thu reunion of the n'clments'which left
that statu. It was thought , however , .that
about 250 names had been entered.
In the Illinois registration were found 203 '
names , but It Is thought that these i
will bo Increased before Friday night to morn i
than : ) , UOO. Last year there were 3,000 on the )
Ohio veterans to the number of 303 had in
scribed their names at their headquarters , and
their number will be Increased before tr.a
close of the week.
Michigan was represented only by five
men , the last of whom a feeble old gentle
man , wrote Ills name in the presence of the
HKK reporter with a trembling and almost
palsied hand , which made the signature all
the moro Important.
The Hadgor state , Wisconsin , had eighty-
four renrt'scntativus. as nynlnst a total regis
tration last year of 400.
Thu Kansas hoadinarters were deserted ,
although it seamed linprobiblo that
in all thu posts present a Kansas nun could
not bu found.
The ex-soldiers of Nebraska had a little
picnic In their hcadqnaiters , tumbling In thu
( raw like c'lddMti. ' Of thow. thlrtv-thruu
had gotten tosethor. Some of these went out
with the First Nebraska and others with the
Second and others still represented tha Hlack
Horse battalion when the First was merged
Into it In 1S05 , when it was assigned for bor
der auty.
In front of another tent floated a small
silk American Hair , on ono side of which
were the arms of Kentucky and on the other
these of Tennessee. The representatives
of these states had joined hands with Min
nesota In a three-fold association. Kentuck-
tans to the number of live and Minnesotans
to thu same number had recorded , but no
body had called to speak tor Tennessee.
Last year's total registration for Kentucky
and Tennessee was twunty-nine and Min
nesota had the same number.
In the cavalry headquarters the reporter for
the HKK found a loiter from Commissioner
Hlark , of the interior department , asKing tor
thu address and regiment and rank of vet
eran cavalrymen , to be added to a list of
about seven hundred thousand now In thu
department. Sixteen of these bad regis
West Virginia was represented by six vet
Indiana was represented by 100 soldiers ,
wliile last year's showing was 331. ,
The Nebraska batalllou of Nuw York vet
erans , with a biuutitul banner in front of Its
tent entrance , had an enrollment of sixty
All Now England was remesentod by but t
twenty vetoraus , and Missouri had none to
do her honor. ,
Pennsylvania , which was prided In by
Captain Wood , had secured 150 names and
expects about r > 00.
Registration will bo continued to-day and 1
to-morrow , and this afternoon thd various
statu organizations will elect officers who
will make out the roster of survivors trom
these lists. '
Military Kvolntton * .
For the second time In the camp the In
fantry companies took part Ina dress
northeast ot the reunion
grounds , and were witnessed by a largo
number ot spectators. Commenting on the
drill , a German military gentleman said to a
BBB reporter : " 1 know what good drilling
13 , and I must say that these soldiers are an
excellent body of men. They really drill
very well In fact almost aa well as some of
our best Gecman soldiers. "
In the afternoon , at throe o'clock , Colonel
Porter's Hunt battery entertained the specta
tors with about an hour's exhibition of their
skill In artillery movements. Some of these
were executed at command by the sword ,
others by the voice , and others still by the
bugle. These consisted In forming action
front and tnovlnz by the right left and Hank
Into the same. The evolutions were made
with great rapidity , and formed a feature so
full ot Interest to many who had never seen
them before , that an immense crowd will
desire to witness them again on Thursday
To-Day' * 1'arndo.

Youthful Durmmorn ,
The attention of the campers until yester
day was divided among the host of adult
musicians who throng the grounds. They
then found now objects , however , to intcres
them In a trio ot youthful drummers , who In
some respects mar bn considered remark
able. They are the sons of voter
ans and coma trom Pawnee City ,
Thu eldest Is scarcely seven years and their
names are Jake Bole , Lehman and Hob
ert Albright , son of John Albright , of the
place mentioned. Lehman Is a slight little
iellow. seemingly weighing but little moro
than his drum , while Hobbln Albrleht Is nose
so tall though a handsome little fellow and
compactly formed. Each of these
Is itDout four years ot ace. Of the
three , Hobble Is thu moro competent , hand
ling his sticks In a manner to surprise and
evoke the admiration of the crowd. Ho
drums , too , with a sense of timing thn music ,
displaying a talent quite unusual. The other
two little fellows do well also , and the trio
form a combination which Is not the least
among thu attractions of the grounds.
The morning breezes that came gently stroll
ing from the upper realms yesterday morning
had to kiss the profusion of Hags , bunting ,
wreaths and welcoming and patriotic decora
tions of all kinds. The city is indeed in red ,
whitu and blue attire , and , saving a demo
cratic patcli or two , thu garment of thu union
Is as intact and as now as when the veterans
who are hero to-day handed It over to the
people. Yet the work of decorating Is not
nnlshcd , and It Is hard to toll where any more
little and Dig Hags can come from. One
thing Is noticeable the postollico remains
without "patriotic frill or furbelow" with the
exception ot two tiny Hags stirKln ? out of
thu United Status marshal's oflico and three
from the United States court clerk's room.
Evidently It the postmaster had written
to Grover asking an appropriation to
ornament the bulldinir , Dan would
have replied , "Let 'er go Gallagher. "
Both of tnu railway headquarters are also
devoid of anv welcoming emblems , which is
also noticeable , especially when occasions of
this kind are financial harvests for them.
Otherwise thu citizens ot Omaha are to be
congratulated on their display and U will
undoubtedly bo remembered.

The Salvation Army yesterday sent an am

farmer wagon with Dlack.sjdes , on ono ot
which was chalked : "God so loved the
world that Ho gave Ilia only beloved Son
that these who would Dcficvo would bo
