visit them several times, and I know of no institution that is bet-
ter managed, whose beneficent results are more apparent, and
whose claims should meet with a more prompt and hearty response.
Thanks to the sisters of the Relief Corps, the Home is constantly
receiving embellishments, and the wants of the men are looked
after as only mothers, wives and daughters can oversee and relieve.
These good sisters are in earnest in assisting the trustees in the
proposed fair for the benefit of the Home, and you will not, I feel
sure, fail in doing your part to make it a success.

Our National Encampment, through its Committee on Pen-
sions, is seeking such amendments of existing pension laws as
shall increase tlie pensions of widows, minor children, and the
total or partially maimed soldier; shall create pensions for the
dependent ])arents of the soldier who left no widow or minor chil-
dren, for disabled and dependent soldiers who have reached sixty-
five years of age, without requiring proof of origin of disability,
and for all disabled ex-prisoners of war, without requiring proof
that disability is the result of imprisonment; and shall provide an
equitable equalization of bounties. That committee report that,
"There are now pending over two hundred and fifty thousand
pension applicants, of the eyeless, legless, armless and sick, and
of the widows and orphans of comrades deceased. It is estimated
that four-fifths of this list are delayed and their present adjudica-
tion prevented from the lack of testimony which the lapse of



296 HISTORY DEPT. OF MASS., G.A.R.

twenty years, and the death of witnesses since the war, render
unattainable." In view of these facts, my comrades, it seems to
me that it is just and equitable, wise and charitable, that we throw
all the weight of our associated and personal influence in obtain-
ing the results which this committee are seeking, and that we
refrain from participation in or sympath}' with any movement which
would hinder or embarrass this. In a recent order the Com-
mander-in-Chief calls attention to the '' Mexican Pension Bill,
with amendments," now pending in Congress, as covering many
of the recommendations just enumerated, and urges immediate
petitioning for its passage by the House of Representatives. Let
us respond promptly and heartily.

In the absence of any prescribed topics to be brought for-
ward by the Department Chaplain in his annual report, I have
reckoned on your indulgence in presenting the foregoing. In
conclusion, I call your attention to a fact which we cannot too
deeply ponder, as the remembrance of it will be a spur and incite-
ment to the use of opportunity and the discharge of obligation. I
allude to the fact that there is necessarily a limit to the numerical
strength of our organization and also to its existence. Unlike all
other associations which are worthy of enlisting our energies for
their growth and efficiency, the Grand Army of the Republic
cannot be made perpetual. It will terminate its existence as mor-
tality consigns the honorably discharged soldiers and sailors of
the war for the preservation of the Union to the common lot of
man. We can have no successors. Every year diminishes the
possible number of recruits to our ranks, as it hastens the coming
of our own impotence. Today, therefore, while it is called
today, let us lengthen and strengthen our lines, closer clasp the
bonds that unite us, renew our vows of duty, discharge our obli-
gations, and, so -caring for those who were dear to our departed
comrades, receive to ourselves and be enriched by that which is
greater than all else attainable by mortals, — the consciousness
of the approval and blessing of Almighty God.

Respectfully submitted in F., C. and L ,

RICHARD EDDY,
Department Chajylain.



On motion of Comrade Chas. B. Fox of Post 68, it w^as voted
to appoint a committee of five to whom may be referred the
address of the Department Commander and other officers, for
such action as will be necessary. The Commander appointed
Comrades Charles B. Fox of Post 68; C. W. C. Rhoades of

and H. S. Buuton of Post 121.



NINETEENTH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 297

Moved and voted that a committee of five be appointed to
receive communications from Posts and comrades and report
thereon.

The Commander appointed Comrades J. P. Maxfield of Post
42; Charles F. King of Post 139; Ivory R. Allen of Post 35 ;
Arthur Neilson of Post 2 ; and Darius Hadley of Post 15G.

Comrade E. B. Loring of Post 15 at this point arose and
addressed the Commander as follows : —

At a meeting of the delegates of this Convention in favor of
the Eight-Dollar Pension Bill, I was requested to present to this
Convention the following motion : —

Moved, That this Department is in favor of the passage of the
Lovering Bill, H.R., No. 6463, and that our delegates to the next
National Encampment be instructed to so vote and act as to put the
Grand Army of the Republic on record in favor of that bill.

A moment ago I was spoken to by Comrade O'Donuell of
Post 2, who asked me to give way to him for a moment, in order
that he might introduce a motion looking to the free discussion of
this subject. I think he is opposed to me on this question, but
I hope his motion will prevail.

Comrade J. H. O'Donuell of Post 2 : Commander, I under-
stand the motion introduced by Comrade Loring to be this : that
the election of delegates to the National Encampment will depend
greatly upon the action taken here tonight. I an:, I need not
say here, utterly and wholly opposed to the so-called Lovering
bill. I do not believe in it in part or in w'hole ; but I do desire
and hope that the fullest and freest possible discussion will be
given to it tonight, that the Commander will not entertain a motion
for the previous question, or any motion that tends in any way
to shut off debate, so long as any two comrades desire to debate it.

Comrade Loring then in a very able manner presented his
question, and was listened to with marked attention and fre-
quently applauded.

At this point, on motion of Comrade Chas. B. Fox of Post
68, it was voted that when the Encampment adjourn it be to
meet at nine o'clock a.m., in Tremont Temple, Jan. SO, 1885.

THE RECEPTION OF COMMUNICATIONS FROM POSTS AND COMRADES.

cation which I desire to present and have referred to the proper
committee, asking the Department to petition the Legislature for



298 HISTORY DEPT. OF MASS., G.A.R.

a law giving cities and towns the right to lease halls to Posts of
the G.A.R. in their vicinity; as they cannot rto it as the law now
stands.

Comrade J. L. Knight of Post 1(5 offered the following
resolution : —

Besolvp.d^ That it is the voice of this Encampment that the head-
quarters of this Department be retained in the city of Boston

Comrade Augustus H. Wright of Post 73 : I desire to ask the
committee to whom communications are referred, to take in
charge the communications from Post 73, submitted to the last
Encampment.

The discussion upon the pension bill was then resumed ;
Past Department Commander Austin S. Cushman of Post 1
speaking in opposition.

Past Commander-in-Chief Geo. S. Merrill of Post 31) moved
that when the discussion of this evening shall have been con-
cluded, it shall be resumed at the morning session at ten o'clock,
and that the vote be taken at eleven o'clock. After some debate
the latter part of the motion in regard to the time of taking the
vote was lost, and the former part of the motion was adopted.

Comrade J. P. Maxfieid of Post 42 moved that the dis-
cussion be limited to ten miuutes for each speaker.

Adopted.

The discussion of the main question was again resumed.
Past Commander-in-Chief George S. Merrill of Post 39 and Past
Department Commander J. G. B. Adams speaking against the

Geo. L. Goodale of Post 66 moved that the Convention
adjourn to meet at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

Commander R. F. Tobin moved that a committee of five be

Adopted.

The Commander appointed the following committee : —
