The hall Is very handsomely decorated
iwlth bunting and flags In honor of the con
vention. The walls are very plentifully
hung with the red , white and blue , whllo
the stage was draped with a background
Df the same tricolor. A etlll further patri
otic coloring Is given to the gathering from
the fact that a majority of the delegates
xvcro uniformed In the military costume of
the order.
Chaplaln-ln-Chlcf Harry L. Veazey of Har-
rlman , Tcnn. , Is absent and In his place
Past Commander William G. Duatln was ap

Yesterday afternoon was to have been
upent by the delegates In visiting the ex
position grounds , but on account ot the wcl
nml disagreeable weather It was decided
to hold a business session and to select
Bomo other afternoon during the encamp
ment to make the visit. Consequently the
delegates were called together again at S
o'clock and remained In session during the
remainder of the afternoon.
The principal part of this session was
spent In listening to the reports 'of officers ,
In the absence of Commnndor-ln-Chlef Dar
ling the most Interesting report was thai
ot Adjutant General Fred E. Belton , whc
took occasion to review the work of tin
administration. In the course ot the reporl
bo , said i
'This ' encampment meets at a'most ausplc-

Speaking of the present condition of th (
order the adjutant general referred to th (
Tact that shortly after the election of the
commandor-ln-chlcf a year ago headquarter !

the routine business of the order has beer

March 31 of this year , thcro was a nc

in a number of years that gains were show
Tor three successive quarters. The Jun
quarter , however , which has been ordl
narlly one of the best of the year , has bee
less successful for the following reasons :
First , the outbreak of the ) war with Spal
called forth a great number of the most Ir

tor. Secondly , to secure reports In tlmo for
preparation for presentation to this encamp
ment it was necessary to call upon the dt-
vlrlon commanders to submit the same nt nr
earlier date than on previous occasions.
The number In good standing June 30 , 1SS7 ,
was 1,178 camps , 31,712 members , Juno 30

Te future may bring many changes In the
linen upon which we are nt present consti
tuted. There nro many who think thai
changes nre necessary and many brothers an
of the opinion that we should become mort
of a historical body , dropping our semi-mill'
tnry characteristics. Legislation to this cf'

The remainder of the report was take

of Omaha as early as 1865 , nt the rime D
Durant ! was having his rail's shipped be ;
for the Union Pacific , bringing them up tl
river from St. Joseph by steamboat. I
had time last night to comment briefly (
the political situation In New York , as to
lows :
The republicans will capture the legl
lature of New York If Roosevelt Is non
Inated for governor ; If Roosevelt Is n
nominated I do not think they will. I <
not believe Mr. Platt Is taking any partlci
lar Intercut In the contest between Rees
veil nnd Black. The leaders of the dem
cratlc party In my state are opposed to si
vcr , and I do not believe there will be an
thing said about silver In their platter
save to smoothe It over In some way. t
to business there has been a steady Improv
mcnt In every line of Industry and trad
Wo do not attribute thi prosperity to tl
war , for the only thing benefited Cy t !
war has been the production of the mur
ite tlons of war , and the consumption of brea
e stuffs and the other staples and necessltl
of life would haw been Just as great If t :
men mustered nito the army liad stay
at home. The withdrawal ot men from t
channels of Industry to carry on war d
not have any perceptible effect on so gre
a city as New York. The prosperity , In 11
opinion , has come about through the con
dcnco the people have In the wisdom of t
administration. Business has simply r
siimed In view of the safe conservatism
the administration's financial and corn me
clal policies.

Congressman Fowler Is serving his seco
term In congress as the representative
the Eighth district of his state. The not
In&tlng convention of that district will
Eomo time In October , and though Mr. Fo
ler does not say BO , his friends think
Is sure of a renomlnatton. Ho discussed Ni
Jj Jersey politics somewhat , saying :
For a democratic state which voted agalt
Abraham Lincoln , and which had not elect
a republican governor for thirty years un
Grlggs , Mr. McKlnley's present attorn
general , was elected In the last catnpalf
New Jersey did pretty well for McKlnli
It gave him 87,000 majority. We think
will do OB well this year. The republlca
8 there feel very much gratified over the i
suit of the war and the business condltlo
are good , which IB always a presage of r
publican success. Foster M. Voorhees , w
has be-cn acting governor since Grlggs' a
polntment , will get the nomination for go
ernor and there Is not the slightest dou
of his election. New Jersey Is one of t
strongest gold standard states.
Louis R. Ehrlcb , whose home Is at Col
rado Springs , bad a word or two on Col
ado politics , somewhat different from the
lows brought hero by Chairman Towno ol
ho silver republicans , particularly the affali
it the killing ot a McKlnley republican nt
Colorado Springs recently. Said he :
The remarkable thing about the situation
n Colorado Is the practical abandonment
of Senator Teller by the so-called silver re
publicans , Indicating that the silver antl-
McKlnley republicans will be a pretty lonely
sot In 1900. The culmination ot feeling
which led to tbo murder ot a McKlnley
cpubllcan In the Colorado Springs opcrs
louse has a deeper significance than mosl
people realize. To my mind the crack ol
that rlflo means the approaching death ol
the free silver craze , Just as the attack ot
Lovejoy , however unrecognized at the mo
ment , meant a culmination ot feeling whlct
brought about the speedy abolition of slav <
cry. Thcro can be no doubt but that then
Is n weakening ot the free silver sontlmcnl
In Colorado. The tremendous Increase o :
the gold products of the state has , ot course
contributed to this result , but , Imlcpemleu
of this , the thinking men ot the state nr <
gradually realizing that the gold standard
whether for gcod or for 111 , Is a fact t (
which wo must all accommodate ourselves
As soon as there Is sufficient moral couragi
to lead men to speak out their views frccl ]
and frankly the whole agitation , which hai
been so disastrous to the Interests ot oui
own state , will vanish.

An Interested spectator of the debate !
and probably a participant will bo ex-Sen
ator Fred DuBols of Idaho. He got In yes
terday and soon found Mr. Towne's quar
ters at the Paxton. Senator Frank Petti
grew of South Dakota , being Indisposed , ha
sent word that ho cannot come.
"The republicans of Idaho , " sold Mr
DuBols , "aro more honest than those o
Utah. The Utah republicans declared li
their platform for the Independent frc
coinage of silver at 1C to 1 , but the repub
llcana of Idaho came out flat-footed for th
gold standard. In our state the democrat
and the silver republicans have united 01
one ticket , but the populists have split am
have two separate tickets In the Held. Th
numerical strength , though , of the com
blued democrats and silver republicans I
much greater than that of the gold re
publicans and populists all put together. "

tics , with the exception of .tho gold standar
republicans , belong to It.

The hard ruin of Monday morning could
not prevent the soldiers of the Scconil Ne
braska regiment from pulling out for home.
At noon there were not more than 150 sot-
dlcrs left In Camp George U. Mclklejohn ,
and the bulk of these are the men selected
to remain hero with Colonel Bills during
the thirty days' furlough to look after the
post. One hundred and twenty soldiers and
a half dozen officers will stay hero.
There was no ceremony about the depart
ure of the mpii. Aa Undo Sam did not have
charge of their homeward transportation
there was nothing official about their going
out , and they left whenever they pleased ,
They were paid off Sunday attcrnoon , anil
some of them reft for homo on Sunday even
ing. The great majority , however , did nol
leave until Monday morning. At all of the
railroad stations they could bo seen buylnf
tickets and boarding the first westbound
trains going near their respective homes
All of the railroad companies allowed tin
soldiers halt rates , so they bought rouni !
trip tickets for the regular one-way faro
A few of the men remained In town t (

quarters yesterday In no very cheerful frami

surroundings rather dismal. Another bur
den was the return to camp discipline
which has been entirely relaxed during thi
