FOR REUNION OF VETERANS
Opening if the Florence Lint Makos Old

FIFTY THOUSAND VISITORS EXPECTED

The opening of the Florence Una makes
H probable that Fort Omaha will ba the
scene of the veterans' reunion to ba held
thie fall. The Commercial club, which took
the lead In the effort te capture the re
union, has conferred with General Bates
f the Department of the Missouri who
has promised the use of Fort Omaha If It
Is desired, provided the club will guarantee
to clean up the grounds after the crowd
haa gone. The line to Florenca goes di
rectly past the fort and now that the cars
are put in operation the selection of a site,
uaiuvlly n1t4 a problem, has become easy..
eoretary Utt of the Commercial club
said: "This veterans' reunion is often con
fused with the state encampments of the
Grand Army of the Republto. They are
very different affairs. The encampment la
the meeting of the organized body and at
tended almost exclusively by delegates. The
reunion Is a ree pitch-in attended by sol
diers and their whole families. It will oc
cupy some week not yet announced by the
council and reunion committee, but likely
to be In -September or October. Possibly It
will t-e the week of the Ak-8ar-Ben festivi
ties, whloTi are to be from October 1 to 10.
The total attendance at an encampment In
Nebraska la measured by hundreds. The
attendance at a reunion mounts to 15,000
soma days and for the week will total
about 60,000. Tents are provided on the re
union grounds and there many of the old
soldiers camp out with their families.
There Is no program of business, but Just
a free and eaay good time, devoted very
largely to the swapping of war tales and
reminiscences. For additional amusement a
number of the better class of Midway at
tractions are 'usually rented space, but
neither gambling devices nor liquors are
"The club made no Tight' to get the re
union away from other towns If the vet
erans preferred to go there, but we made a
liberal bkl because the reunion, In addition
to being a pleasant affair, is good from a
business point of view. Those attending
always spend a part of each day In the city
shopping and in that way the business men
f the entertaining city are given oppor
tunity to meet them and to promote trade
