Philadelphia , has not yet abated in the least ,
says the Philadelphia Hccord , and the dis
cussions and differences of opinion which
prevail upon the subject by grand army men
promise to create trouble In the ranks of that
organization. The members of Colonel Fred
Taylor Post , No. 19 , ono of the largest posts
in this city , nave become particularly in-
censed over the election of General John
ston. A resolution was unanimously adopted
at the last muster condemning Post No. 8
and stating "That on consultation with able
counsel we are advised that the action taken
by General E. D. Baker Post , No. S , in elect
ing General Joseph K. Johnston , of tbo rebel
army , as a contributing member thereof is a
violation of tbo objects , alms , principles ,
spirit and meaning of the organization of thu
Grand Army of the Republic , ana in order
to have thu subject properly adjusted b.y the
proper authority a committee of three com
rades of tills post ( of whom the past com
mander shall bo ono ) Is appointed to properly
present the case to tbo department comman
der , and through him to the cointnandor-inj

ble , bu corrected , and future blunders
Ono of tbo department ofllcors of the G. A.
R. in this city , who is thoroughly acquainted
with the working of the order , stuted that
the national judge advocate general had de
cided , when un appeal was made to the order
for contributions to assist some southern
people at u time of great distress , that posts
could not contribute money to aid those who
has rebelled against the government. Inas
much us this decision had been made , this
gentleman claimed that | < osts should not re
ceive contributions from ex-confeilurutcs.
This view of the subject is , however , rjdl-
culcd by some members , who say that posts
can receive contributions for Decoration day
or for other puriiosos from confederate sol
diers without violating any law. Onu of tbo
interesting questions that liavo been raised
In as to whether tbcro can bo "contributing
nr honorary membership In the Grand

membership. Nearly all tbo jwsts have ,
however , these superfluous members con
