XIieNoxti Encampment to Me Held at I�e-  troit-Tiio Woman's ICellof OorpH Moots InEIglitU Annual Convention-An Ovation to Paul Vandorvoort. Boston, Aug. 14.-The convention of the twenty-fourth national encampment G. A. B. came to order in Ma-Bonichallat 11 a. m. Commander-in-Ohief Alger delivered his annual address. He said in regard to the disability pension bill that by careful reading of the law it wDl bo seen that no matter what a man's financial condition is, if he be physically disabled from performing manual labor,'he is entitled to a pension. Be' ferring to Gen. Logan's monument, he said: "The funds in the hands of the trustees outside of the government appropriation for the site and pedestal amounts to $12,841.70. I trust the time is not far distant when this tnbute to this beloved leader will have been completed." '-'Tonching Gen; Grant's monument he said; f'A plain vault on the banks of theiHudson marks the resting place of our great chieftain.' This is not creditable to us or the nation. There should, be erected at the national capital, dedicated to the memory of this great man, a 'memorial building, such as has not been built in this or any other country. To that end I recommend that a committee of .five be appointed to solicit aid from the government and individuals." Gen. AJger closed his address with an euloCTstic reference to Comrade John P. Hart-ranft, the fifth, commander-in-chief, who died daring the year. The address was received with frequent^ expressions of approval by the large body of delegates present. � The report of Adjt. Gen. George'H. Hopkins shows that on June .30,1890; there were in the several departments 71,'78l posts, with a membership of *97,38!i. The gains since June 80, 1889. were 520 posts-and 20,317 members. The losses were 20 posts and 1,S81 members. Amount expended for relief tor. the year was ta!fl,850.18.     _ ELECXINO OI'FICEIIS. Washington as vice president, and Nathan ^Nuwhall of Maiden as tecretai*y. Speeches were made by.these three om-cers. It was voted to hold the next re-uuioniat Washington in the fall of 1801. In the"" afternoon the'association dined at the Arlington house, Nftntasket, A thoroughly enjoyable' roanion of tho former members of .4he Forty-fifth and One Hundredth Pennsylvania was given by the members of the Thirty-sixth Massachusetts Infantry association at their headquarters, ��� womaiv's RKI.IEV corps. .And ke�;p;oWn,9t^k^Ne9 and Freab.^ ^ At the afternoon session officers were elected; the principal positions going to the east, in pursuance as it is claimed by some, of a plan to give the emcamni-I2^D"^rfeie'-Tn-l5ffl7-Topeka iil89arand Chicago in 1893.. The roll was called and representatives of each state had an opportunity to name their choice for commander-in-chief. California presented the claims of Col. Smedberg, a retired officer of the regular army. Connecticut named Col. Wheeler O. �Veazey of Vermont and Maine seconded the nomination. Col Veazey's name was received with applause. Indiana and Ohio named Gen. Alvin P. Hovey of Indiana, while Montana supported Smedberg; Minnesota; New Hampshire, New Jersey, Idahoand Iowa expressed � a preference for Col. Veazey. When New York was reached Warner Miller arose and was greeted with applause. He was obliged to take the-platform, and' said he- had been in-' structed to second- the nomination of one-whom the delegates honored and loved. � If New York.. had no candidate of her own he did not want the: en-:; campment to -forget that New YorkV once owned alittlestrip in the Green-mountain state. Although its soil; might be nnfittedfor ordinary crops.yet there was one crop that could be raised to perfection-the crop of loyal men. Mr; Miller concluded by seco^d^ng the nomination of CoL Veazey as the comr rade who would: be supported by the; entire delegation of New York, Penn-i sylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and; Texas in quick succession named Col., Veazey. Ex-Governor Pingree for Vermont eulogized the services of Coli" Veazey. -Utah, Virginia : and Alaska wanted Col. Smedberg, and Illinois was; the last state to respond for Col., Ve Or zey. Massachusetts would have supported Col. Veazey, but as the dele^a--tion was divided in the: m&tter of seuor . vice commander, it was decided to take; ! no part in the selection of- commander-1 in-chief. ! :As:soon as-the tollman ended Col.i Smedberg ascended the platform and? gracefully withdrew his -name, Otm^i :Hovey pursuing a similar course;,^ This. 1 action was : greeted with applause; and' by a unanimous vote Col.
