ths lirst post of the Grand Army of the Ho
public was organized and all over the land
the bravo men who wore the blue In the hour
of thrlr nation's peril \vlll join in a celobr.T
tion of the silver anniversary of their beloved
order ,
The Grand Armv of the Kopubtlc was
founded by Ur. U. Stephenson , who was a
urgoon during the war of the rebellion In
the Fourteenth Illinois regiment. Ho was
born In Illinois In 18'i3 nud served through
tbo war and died at Hock Creek , August at ) ,
1H71.Tho early history of the Grand Army Is
largely n matter ot conjecture. All the rec
ords of the early da\ have been lost and the
only history of the Inception of the order is
that Captain .lohn S. Phelpi of the Thirty-
Eccoud Illinois Infantry , who was the llrst
person to bo admitted Into the order and who
was mainly If not solely , instrumental In
Biircudinj' tbo organization.
Ucforo the robulllon ended nnd the army of
volunteers was disbanded the warmth of as
sociation ongcndoio'i by long service led the
vctuiansi to consider the question of contlnu-
Cngtho comradeship nnd a number of orgiin-
.Izatlons were founded with that end In vlow ,
Nearly nil of these wcro short lived.
Among UIOBO who gave much thought to
the Idea of iiorpetuntirig the associations of
the war period was Ur Henjnmln Franklin
Ktcpberisou. Ono morning in February IWji } ,
there were sitting InDr Stcphenson's of'
lice , In Sprlngllold , 111. , Ur Stephenson , his
two partners , Drs Allen nnd Hamilton , ax-
Burgeons , nnd Captain John b. I'helps. Dr ,
Kt'-phonsou romaikod that bo hail a plan
which wouldinovo , the country In response
to Imiujrirs from Captain Phelps ho produced"
n roll of immusciipt containing n cmdo
ritual , This was looked ovtr , but nothing
further was done for soveinl days , when a
mooting was held and followed hi several
othoi.s , at which alterations and additions
wore made to tbo forms drafted by the
The ritual was taken to Dccatur , III. , by
t'uptuln I'helps , to the olllco of thoTilbunc ,
loth proprietors of that paper and nil the
compositors being old soldiers The oath of
the order was administered to nil of them by
rnijtAln I'helps and the work of printing tbo
ritual was perfoimed.
The mission of Captain I'helps soon be
came known and a post was organized ut
Dccatnr on ApiilO , Ibdti , with Colonel Isaac
C. I'ugh as commander and Captain M. F.
Kunan as adjutant. Tbis post was known as
'N'o. 1 , ami from Its organization dates the
birth of the order.
ComraUo 1'helps was appointed organizer
and traveled through southern Illinois organ
izing posts , Oigaiil/ciii weio appointed in
other states and before the end of I'M. the
order had extended Into Indiana , Kansas ,
Minnesota , Missouri , Ohio , Pennsyl
vania , Massachusetts , Now York , Maryland
and Wisconsin.
Dr. Stenlienson assumed the command of
the organization In May , IMii ) , and u call
for a convention was Issued and signed by

Our brigade was changing positions nt
Btoiio Ulver so as to cover the exposed Hank
of another brigade , when I suddenly sank
down lu a heap , suys an old veteran la the
Detroit Tt co Press. lean rctnomber of fallIng -

of fifty feet. I also heard n fnr-iwuy volco
Baying :
"Forward , men forward I Steady on the

If the missiles which struck mo bad reach

quiet where I lay , I had boon hit ! The
thoucht gave mo n , sudden shock and cleared
ray mind , Where had the bullet struck mot
I felt no pain , and for n few seconds hoped
that I had only boon stunned. Then I lo-
rated the wounds. One of nrngc's shells

Just worked fclong Into ft hollow spot , where
I had a rest for mv back , when a llctco lookIng -
Ing fellow , whoso drcii showed him to bo a
tcnrastor or a camp lol' nvcr of some sort ,
came out of a clump of bushes about ten rotU
away. Illi object , as I suspected nt llrst
glance , was to rob the dead.
It was very seldom that OTCII the worst of
the army bummers had the cheek to play the
ghoul in broad daylight , and that with Hunt
ing still going on , but this fellow went about
it ai coolly as ycu please. Ho went throagh
the Dockets of every dead man in front of me > .
getting considerable plunder from each , and
when ho had finished with the last ho came
over to me , rcirnrded mo with evil eyes a mo
ment , nnd thun asked :
"What have you gotl"
* "About $10 In tconoy. "
"Shell out and bo d d quick about it ,
"I can't. I'm hit in three places , and the
money Is In a pocket under me. "
"Hand It over , I say "
"My friend don't bo rough on a wounded
man. If you'll raise me up I'll ' try to got It
for you. "
"Raise 1" he growled. "I know of a
way to get It without so much trouble. "
Ho hadn't far to look to find n loaded mus
ket , and ho picked It up and raised It to hi.s
Bhouldor , nnd stepped forward to put the
muzzle to ray head before hepulled tbo trigger.
Tha Infernal ghoul meant to blow my head
oft and then rob mo ut his leisure. I saw it
In hH eyes as plalu as day I believe his lin
ger was on the trigger when ho suddenly
suiggured back and fell to the earth , the mus
ket hoing discharged In the air as ho fell. I
also saw the bullet ns It struck him. It hit
him In tbo center of the forehead , andsccmed
to bo enveloped In smoke as It struck.
"That's what 1 think of him. no matter
\\hicb side ho belonss tot" called a volco behind -
hind him.
I know by the voice ho was a confederate ,
und I called.
"I that you , Johnny 1"
"Yes , that's me , Yank I"
"Did you shoot that fellow ! "
"There ain't nobody else around ycro as
could hevdono It' "
"Thank ye , Johnny 1 What regiment do

Hut I couldn't linlsh. I fainted dead away ,
nnd when I came to 1 was being picked up by
the ambulance corps und was suffering such

The Fieemason's Repository contained the
following In icsponso to the queries 'Was '
Napoleon a member of the Masonic frator-
ternityl Is 'Napoleonic Masonry1 u part of
the legitimate craft system ! " :
"Our correspondent refers , no doubt , to
Napoleon the Oicat , who was inado n Mason
at Malta In .Tune , 17H. ( Ho did not , however ,
publicly Identify himself with the craft ,
though ho showed special favor to the insti
tution. In ISO I ho appointed his brother ,
Joseph Buonup.irte , grand master of the
.Grand Orient , thus making a significant ex
pression of his Interest In nnd regard for the
organi/atlon. In the year 1811 ! some of the
zealous partizans of the Napoleon dynasty
sought to make use of the name and power
of Masonry in the Interest of their desisns.
Hcnco they founded 'Maconnerlo Nnpol-
Icnnn , ' thouah beyond Its form there was
nothing Masonic about It. The order
had three grades. the last one
having three subdivisions , nnd the
wholes Inner bearing of the ritual and
ceremony turned upon the glory of Napoleon
and the porpotiiution of his dynasty. Gen
eral Bertram ! , who accompanied Napoleon In
his exile to St. Helena , was the first grand
master of the older. Tor a tow years
'Napoleonic Masonry' wis well known ' and
oxcrci.scd considerable inlluonco tn'Franco ;
but It did not long survive. Jt perished with
the generation to which Napoleon I. be
longed. "

A recent Kansas City dispatch Intimated
that'G. W. Vorter , high ranger of tlw Inde
pendent Order of Foresters , who is alleged
to huvo absconded a few dajs ago , Is sus
pected nf appropriating funds of the order
Those suspicions , It Is said , are well grounded
The dispatch also says that Porter , besides
being high ranger , was organi/er for Missouri
and Kansas.
Notwithstanding the nbovo statements ,
the Kansas and Mlssoutl Jurisdiction
of Foresters Is an entirely separ
ate one from that to which Ne

to the Jurisdiction having central headquar

Jurisdiction are entirely separate. The order
in Nobiaska Is growing , having now between
eighteen and nineteen thousand members ,
Several of the high officials are expected to

Sioux CITT , In. , April 2. [ Special to TUB
HKR. ] There has never before been shown
the Interest In Sioux City sporting clrdcs
that Is to bo seen hero today. Sioux Cltv is
the gamest town of Its weight in the United
States , Tlmt's the fcellnp hero , at least.
The chief nun of Sioux : City is to stop the
talk In some of the towns of the Western ! association about Sioux City drop
ping out. The Idea bcro Is that some-of these
towns will hoar something drop before the
Sioux Citrtenro gats through with thorn thi *
season. The Sioux City nssociatlon Is far
bolter oft financially than It bus ever boon
boforo. There Is a .nice subscription list to
start Off \\llli. The subscribers nro paying up
handsomely. If as good ball Is put up as is
expected mid promised , there will bo a good
mnnv lamer ducks than bloux City , from a
llscal point of view , In the association before
the pennant Is won.
The whole team is hero except "Strauss " and
Poorman. Hero is the phalanx , with the
batting order , as cortllleil by Manager" lluck ,
enhcrger :
L'oorninn , center Hold ; Scholbcck , short
stop ; Vamiyhe , loft Held ; Swartnooil , right
Hold , Morrlssoy , llrst base ; Nicholson , second
end base ; ( ieuins , third bnso , E.irl , Strauss
anil Crossloy , catchers , Slebol , Hurt , Dewald
ami ritzKernlil , pitchers , Hl.u-k , extra.
They call them winners lioto nnd conclude
that at least they are M strong ns the best In
the association.
Hero's a big assertion : "Thcro Isn't ' a
"lusher" on the team. If there Is ho wont't
last long. There ha\o been bums enough
harbored under Corn Ilusker uniforms nl-
rcudv to last forty years. Tlio boys must
keep In conditioner draw no salary. " That's
what Manager Bnckonbergor says , and
those who have looked him In the oyosoom
to be Impressed with the notion that what
ho says "goes. "
All tbo boys have reported hero In flno
condition-not an exception. Thcro wns
some doubt about Slobol showing up in
shnpe , but ho Is all right. \\illboheard
from this season.

amily nicely settled hero. Tin : Him tientod
Sioux City handsomely in the Vandyke deal ,
'he Kansas City papers toasted us by the
olumn before thcv heard our side of thocuso.
S'ow they crawfish The Athletics of Philn-
lolphla have given up Vandyke that Is , they
ay they "don't want him. " They made a big
Ight for him.
Manager BuckenbcrKor denies that the
Sioux City salary list Is too high , or , in fact ,
my where us nc.iV as the salary lists of three
sr four other clubs In tho.association. "Wo
lave amassed great players truo. Hut wo
nro cunning and know "whoro to get them.
Jjcauso some otherclubs arc paying great
stipends Is no reason why they should take
t for granted that we "hnvo to start a na-

which carries heavy capital nnd Is already
carrying out extensive schemes , among

river. . fcSSi
It has not been decided \vhothcr the track
will bo elliptic or idle-shaped , but , upon ad
vice of Dud Doblo , probably the former , and
upon the model of the Washington p.irk track
nt Chicago. It will bo the most beautiful
track in the northwest , nnd the Inducements
will be surpassed nowhere.
The plan Is to hnvo a meeting this fall If
preparations on the scale resolved upon can
bo completed In time. If not , stakes will bo
opened for a spring meeting.
