charged from the military or naval service of the United States, and the
widows and orphans of deceased soldiers and sailors.

Thus it will be seen, comrades, that the time has arrived
when it becomes the duty of the Grand Arm}' of the Republic to
demand the enforcement of the laws in favor of those men who
formed a nation's bulwark around a nation's heart, and tendered
their lives as a free-will otTering for the preservation of the
nation's life, and the unity of our Republic. May my arm be
palsied by my side when it shall cease to hold aloft the banner,
inscribed all over with their glorious deeds ! May my tongue
cleave to the roof of my mouth when it ceases to pronounce the
praises of that matchless courage, unrivalled fortitude and unself-
ish patriotism of the boys iu blue !

For the support of the Veterans' Rights Union, I would
respectfully recommend that the per capita tax be restored to
thirty-two instead of twenty-four cents, and that the amount
restored be set aside and paid by the Assistant (.Quartermaster-
General of the Department to the Board of Control of the Vet-
erans' Rights Union, to defray the legitimate running expenses.



TWENTY-FIKST ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 449



LEGISLATION.

1 desire to call the attention of the Encampment to the
Soldiers' Exemption Bill, which has been before the Legislature
for the past two years. Last year it passed both houses by
very large majorities, and was finally vetoed b}' his Excellency
the Governor. It is a bill to exempt all honorably discharged
veterans of the war from the civil-service competitive examina-
tion. I would therefore respectfull}' recommend that this Encamp-
ment petition the General Court for the passage of the same, and
Posts of the Department be requested to urge the senators and
representatives of their respective districts to aid in securing the
passage of the bill, which will thus allow employment to be
given to comrades who are competent to discharge the duties of
the position for which they may apply, while perhaps they may
not know the height of the Alps, or the width of the Amazon
at its mouth.

RKPORTS.

The reports of the Department and official Staff officers will
show in detail the operations and conditions of their several
Departments, and I commend these reports to your careful con-
sideration. They have each performed the duties pertaining to
their offices in a thorough and satisfactory manner, and I desire
to embrace this opportunity to return to them my acknowledg-
ments and sincere thanks for their hearty co-operation and ever-
willing disposition to render their services in the interest of the
Department during my administration. The Department Senior
and Junior Vice-Conunanders have alwaj's responded promptly
and cheerfully to the performance of all duties required, and have
proved themselves worthy of the trust reposed in them.

But I desire to embrace this opportunity to return my most
sincere thanks and to publicly acknowledge the obligations under
which I rest to Comrade A. C. Monroe, Assistant Adjutant-Gen-
eral of the Department, for the faithful and energetic manner in
which he has attended to duty, and I trust that he may live to
enjoy the confidence of many successive Department Commanders
and the respect of his comrades in this and other Departments, as
a thoroughly efficient and honest man.

. CHARLESTON RELIEF FUND.

Early in September a circular was issued, calling upon the
various Posts of this Department for voluntary contributions for
the relief of the afflicted and terror-stricken people of Charleston,
in response to which I received and forwarded to the ma3'or of
that city, in the name of the Department of Massachusetts,
Sl,()88.3!), which has been duly acknowledged and for which I

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

desire to return my sincere thanks to the comrades who so gen-
erously responded to the call.

GRAND ARMY RECORD.

Again I desire to call the attention of the comrades of this
Department to the fact that the Grand Army Record, a paper
published in Boston by a comrade of the Grand Army of the
Republic, and having the indorsement of headquarters, should be
more generously subscribed for by the boys. Its cost is but one
dollar per year, and it is a genuine Grand Army of the Republic
paper.

Its columns are opened to all comrades for honorable com-
munications and for general Grand Arm}^ news interesting to all
who may avail themselves of the opportunity to read. Don't let
it be said that this Department would allow a paper, in which we
ought to be interested, to discontinue its publication because of
the lack of interest among our members. Send in your subscrip-
tions, boys.

THE DEAD.

Comrades, as the end of my offlcial term was drawing near,
I had begun to congratulate myself and the Grand Army of the
Republic that during the year we had not been called upon to
record the loss of any of our distinguished military leaders, such
as had characterized the previous year, when there flashed across
the wire that intelligence which brought grief to the heart of ever}^
comrade in the Grand Army of the Republic, and told them that
the brightest star in that galaxy of volunteer officers of the war,
a gallant soldier, an able statesman and an honest man, — Senator
.John A. Logan, — was dead. Peace to his ashes ! may his mem-
ory be green and our thoughts of him and those whom he left, be
thoughts of love, gratitude and pride.

" A widow's blessnig
And comrade's trust
Lie in the grave

With Logan's dust."

CONCLUSION.

In conclusion, comrades, I would express my appreciation,
as far as words will convey, for the distinguished honor conferred
upon me by the last Encampment, in calling me to the exalted
station of Commander. It is an honor whicli many comrades far
more worthy than I have ever been might well feel proud to attain ;
and now, as I surrender to you the trust so recently confided to
me, I am deeply moved by the recollection of words and deeds of
kindness which have been so generously bestowed upon me during



TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 451

the past four years with which I have been officially connected
with headquarters. It affords me a peculiar pleasure to record
my appreciation of the faithful and efficient service rendered bv
the elective members of the Council of Administration and mem-
bers of the official Staff. In the charge of their several Depart-
ments, they have been diligent and faithful. The dissolution of
these official relations cannot sever the ties which bind me to these
comrades.

The recollections of my term as Department Commander, the
new friendships formed, the old friendships strengthened, will
enter into my future as bright and welcome guests. For him whom
you may honor as my successor I can express no hope or wish
niore pregnant with good-will and esteem than to desire for him
the same courtesy, respect and expressions of kindness which have
everywhere and at all times been extended to me by the comrades
ot this Department. To the members on my personal Staff I
desire to return my sincere thanks for their uniform courtesy and
kindness to me during the year, and for the faithful manner in
which they have each performed the duties of Assistant Inspectors.
May God bless and prosper the Department of Massachusetts,
Grand Army of the Republic, and the individual membership of
our beloved Order, wherever it has a name and place '
