The attendance was not large, but those who did attend are surely interested in the coming encampment. Tellers being appointed, ballots were cast for an executive committee and the following named gentlemen were elected to this responsible position. E. M. Mussell, S, C. Kirkbride, A. E. Canfleld, J. A. Jackson and L. E. Davy. The committee of two years ago were in various ways handicapped, much to their displeasure, and profiting by this experience they demanded the making of all contracts, payment of all debts, procuring and paying for all supplies, and the disbursement arid collection for badges. In other words, the committee elected have charge of everything pertaining to the encampment, and we feel sure, that, three of the above riamed gentlemen having acted on the committee of'97, whatever they do will be done thotfully, intelligently and to the satisfaction of the reasonable public. These gentlemen should be supported by every citizen, Let it be remembered that it will take from twenty to thirty days' work from each, and hard work too, add doing thii* witliont salary, the person who prefers charges againist these gentle men without any grounds whatever should be court-martialed. This might remain unsaid were it not that two years ago the committee were unjustly censured. Let the spirit of helpfulness possess every citizen and the committee thus well sunported will manage the encampment to the satisfaction of citizens and guests. "Bauder> Alfred.
