The next business was the reports of the Department officers,
commencing with the address of the Department Commander,
Charles D. Nash, as follows : —



TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 523

ADDRESS OF
DEPARTMENT COMMANDER CHARLES D. NASII.

Comrades : — By the ceaseless and ever onward march of
time, we are brought to this our Tw'enty-second Annual Encamp-
ment, where for a time we will halt for the purpose of reviewing
the past, considering the present, and taking such action as may
seem to us wise for the guidance of our noble association in the
future. To this, then, the Twenty-second Annual Encampment
of this Department, I bid you all a most cordial welcome. Let
us act with the wisdom that comes with experience ; let the ques-
tions that may come before us receive due and respectful atten-
tion ; present them if need be with zeal and vigor ; but in the
discussion, let us remember that the minority are entitled to
respectful consideration. Let the principle of Fraternity in its
broadest sense govern our deliberations, and the Twenty-second
Annual Encampment will take its place beside those that have
preceded it, with the commendation of all the members of the
Order.

I feel that I must congratulate the J^ncampment as we enter
upon the twenty-third year of our existence, upon the return to
our ranks of that feeling of good-fellowship which has been so
conspicuous for tw^o or three years past by its absence. I will
not dwell upon the causes which led to so undesirable a state of
things ; but will merely suggest that the life of our institution is
altogether too short, and its importance too great, to endanger it
by the introduction into the discussions upon the questions that
may come before us of bitter personalities. If we cannot discuss
a question upon its merits, let us never allow its introduction into
our Encampment, for harmony is a source of strength that we, as
an institution, cannot afford to dispense with; let us then, com-
rades, recognize the right of every member to his own opinions,
and all of us press on for that which we believe to be for the best
interests of the Order.

MEMBERSHIP.

It will be seen by the report of the Assistant Adjutant-
General, that we have made a gain in membership during the
year of 3,291 and that our losses from all causes have been
