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 sale. 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 noon , brought a number of Grand Army posts , all ot whom wuro quartered without delay and dllllciilty.

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 , ( imiur.il Falrchlld. It Is very warm and 1 will taku none of your time in lutioduclug the general. T1IK ( IKXKIIAU 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 patriot.sm. 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- cehod. 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 ) roll. roll.Ohio 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 tered. West Virginia was represented by six vet erans. 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 four. four.All 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 next.

Hussoll. CiiAni.ns E. BumiKSTEK , Adjutant General. 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. Decorations. 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. Notes. The gospel ark did not arouse much devo tion. tion.Thero There aru about 2,000 Iowa people In the camp. General Fairchlld left last night for Wis consin. The Hanscomo Park M. E. dining hall Is doing an excellent business. Mrs. Clara Bewick Colby was on the grounds yesterday , and tacxcd up a copy of her "Woman's Journal" to the outer support of one of the dally newspaper tents. General Manderson yesterday presented General George Crook camp , Sons of Vet erans with a beautiful procession Ha ? , which was received by Colonel O'Brien. Captains Munn , of Omaha , and Chantry , of Malvcrn , la. , and Lieutenant Newman. The formal presentat'on ' will take place after the re union.

' The Salvation Army yesterday sent an am bulance through the camp In the shape of a 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 granted everlasting life. " On tha other was the legend : "The wages ot sin Is death , but the gift of God la eternal life. " The horses were caparisoned In linen , which was cm- blazoned with the words , "Holiness unto God.

It Is feared that th ? death list will leach 140. In nearly every case the clothing had been torn oil the victim ; . From many of the bodies the limbs ; were missing and tha re mains show evidence that they had been wrenched oft" . Several whole families , num bering from two to live porsont , lost their lives.
