have arranged to receive the visitlog
lady organizations affiliated with the
veterans. Washington will strain points
to accommodate the ladies as well as
their fathers, brothers and sons who
are with them.
There will be decorated on the occa
sion of this thirty-sixth reunion, the
corner stone of the memorial bridge to
connect Arlington .with the city. Many
are the disappointed ones who hoped
to see the bridge this time, for next
year tbey may not be here indeed,
many certainly will not Well they
will know at all events that soon the
wayfarer may walk dryshod from the
sleeping place of the defenders to the
beautiful city that they fought to pro
tect. It Is well to state, perhaps, that the
reunion committee will have Its head
quarters on the Monument lot.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. Under most
unusual conditions the thirty-sixth an
nual encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic opens In the nation's
capital on Sunday evening October 5 th.
Religious services in all' the churches
will usher in the entertainment ten
4ered to the veterans. Washington
ted the G. A. R. ten years ago, on
which occasion the sum of 170,000 was
expended for free quarters alone; this
tteie the total subscribed is far less
than that amount. The thinning
ranks of the wasted old Boys in Blue
My possibly find the reduced appro
ptaUon not Insufficient. And yet, thln
Blng and thinner as those ranks are,
they are an Order of Merit In the
Republic whose membership and
patronage include the highest
worthy of all our dtteen-

Amy parade, Wednesday, Oc

lest f the business men's
itton. In this parade no body
c aca outside Grand Army member-
Is ever admitted; hence the civil-
go ahead with the com-
to-cWe. The famous fighting
wtt be seen for the first time
tk jtrsets WasWagton.
The real work of the encampment
will begin on Tuesday the 7th, with a
parade of about ten thousand made
up of regular soldiers and sailors of the
civil war and of today, visiting organ
izations, sons of veterans, army and
navy, revenue cutter service and oth
er branches of the various services.
The president is expected to be re
covered in time for this parade, by far
the most impressive object lesson that
national life affords the broken but
still heroic old tar who fought with
Farragut, shoulder to shoulder with
the clean-limbed, broad-chested fight
ers of the modern battleship; troops
from Fort Myer and empty sleeves
from the soldiers' home those who did
defend, and those who are ready with
fearful machines to defend, Columbia
In her hour of need the one going,
the other coming one whose work is
today, the other a nation's pride be
cause he has done his work welL
To say that Washington will be en
fete to welcome the G. A. R. very
tamely expresses it. The court of
honor all that part of the city be
tween Fifteenth and Seventeenth
streets, will be devoted to reviewing
stands, for the president and Invited
guests and for the Grand Army and
their invited -guests.
The Rochambeau and Lafayette stat
ues will not be hidden by any of the
structures In the court; and a very
fine vista will extend from the square
of stands straight up to the White
House through Sixteenth street past
the Jackson monument. Standing with
old-world, old-time stately dignity the
figures 'Of our nation's early friends
will tower somewhat approvingly over
the bared heads of the bowed, the griz
zled and the maimed who have made
those friends' efforts worth while. The
grand parade of Wednesday witl dis
band at Seventeenth street after pass
ing up that street a little way beyond
the reviewing square.
Then the veterans will be left to
themselves and their friends. There
will be fireworks at the monument, .flo
tillas on the Potomac; camp fires be
ginning with he rousing biff one that
opens things wide on Monday night
Comrades of distinction will address
large crowds. All the old tunes will
stir the blood of the veterans and the
populace. The old boys will sing some
that were once a terror to the foe and
now a terrible memory of havoc,
slaughter and destruction.
It Is announced that on October ,
Camp Roosevelt will be formally
opened on the White lot The old sol
diers will convene here. Secretary
John Hay will deliver the oration of
the day. Mrs. Ellen Spencer Massey
