ovation as he always is He took a seat with the Missouri dele gates and refused to go on the stage eveia when OomuianderinChief Alger told him that it was the wish of his comrades thai he do so The preliminary prayer and other matters being completed Gen Alger began his annual address A Tribute to Old Tecump The commander af ter a few preliminary remarks went on as follows While we lament the loss of nearly all of our old commanders it is a source of great consolation and pleasure to knovr ihat one of those great leaders of men is still spared to us and is in our midst to slay Upon him this nation is pouring its wealth of love and gratitude Let UH hope and pray that he may long he per mitted to remain here our leader our commander our idol and our comrade God bless you Gen Sherman our lovis for you is beyond words The Color Ijlne Trouble Referring to tho condition of the organ ization he said that with few exceptions it was excelant There have been he continued some disagreements in tho de partment of Louisiana and Mississippi drawn upon the color line the details of which will be found iu the records of the advocate general It is the samei question that today is disturbing many localities in the southern part of this country and which will require patience and concessions from all parties to settle It has beeu my determination to recognize as a comrade the equal rights of every man no matter what his color or nation ality provided he has the two qualifica tions service and honorable discharge In this great struggle of life the strong should aid the weak It ennobles the for mer and helps to elevate the latter Membership and Pensions The official reports presented to the twentythird national encampment dated June 30 1SS9 gave the total membership as liorne on the rolls at that date 41068ri On June 30 1SWO the total membership was 45S23U With regard to the disabil ity pension bill ho said By a careful reading of this law and the official ex planation given of it it will be seen that no matter what a mans financial condi tion may be if he be physically disabled from performing manual labor he is en titled to a pension Let us be just to our lawmakers even though they have not given us all we asked No country on earth is or ever has been nearly as gener ous to itssoldiers as ours The Matter of Monuments Referring to Gen Logans monument he said The funds in the hands of the trustees outside the appropriation made by congress for the site and pedestal amount to I sincerely trust that the time is not far distant when this tribute to this beloved leader will have been completed Speaking of the Gen Sheridan monument Gen Alger stated that under general orders issued from Grand Army headquarter to the posts throughout the country asking for con tributions of from 10 to 25 cents per mem ber there has been received to Aug 2 in clusive Congress continued the general has heretofore passed a law granting each for the purchase of site and pedestal for monuments to Gen Sheiridan Logan and Hancock Unless this law can be so amende that a portion of the amount not needed as specified can be converted to the purchase of statues when we consider the fact that an eques trian statue costs about it is evi dent that the time for their final comple tion is far distant These works should all be pushed with the utmost vigor Memorial to Gen Grant Touching the Gen Grant monument he said An ordinary plain vault on the banks of the Hudson marks the resting place of our great chieftain This is not creditable either to us or to this nation There should be erected at the capital of this government dedicated to the memory of this great man a memorial building such as will bo a credit to the whole peo ple Not a shaft not a statue but a monumental structure such as has not been builded in this or any other country One ito which every citizen within the do mains of this great land can refer with just pride I recommend that a commit tee of five be appointed br this encamp ment whose duties shall be In accordance with the foregoing and empowered to so licit aid from the general government and from individuals A Plea for Patriotism I think we give too little thought to patriotic sentiment to the glories of the past and to the shrine of old flag too little thought to the blessings we enjoy Every patriotic act every subscrip tion to a monument fund every dollar De voted to the relief of the suffering every gathering where patriotic sentiments are expressed help to build a wealth that can not be represented in figures because every such act breathes the life that will perpetuate our love for the nation and continue Its prosperity1 Gen Alger closed his address with a eulogistic reference to Comrade John F
