while the bill has many merits, it is deemed inexpedient to endorse
it, in view of the fact that the Encampment has already nearly
unanimously endorsed the '•' Eight Dollars per Month Service
Pension Bill." The report of the committee gave rise to an ani-
mated and interesting discussion upon the relative merits of the
Eight Dollars per Month and Per Diem Service Pension Bills,
which was participated in by a large number of comrades. The
recommendation of the committee was finally adopted by a large
majority.

On resolutions presented by Abraham Lincoln Post 1 - of
Charlestown, protesting against the discharge of veterans from
the Navy Yard and the substitution of men who never served in
the army or navy, the committee report in favor of resolutions and
recommend their adoption. Report of committee unanimously
adopted .

of Post 35, the Convention adjourned to meet at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

Commander-in-Chief Rea delivered a short but eloquent
address, in which he stated that he found that the place to come
to to learn the true comradeship of the Grand Army of the
Republic was among the hills of New England and along the
Atlantic seaboard. This he considered the grandest fraternity in
the world, and he was happy to be able to state, from a telegram
received last night, that eight Departments showed large gains
during the quarter ending Dec. 31, 1887. The remarks were
received with great enthusiasm by the Encampment.

The Committee on Resolutions resumed its report, and unani-
mously recommended the adoption of the resolutions presented
by Comrade L. E. Jenkins of Post 159, condemning the action
of delegates to National P^ncampment for refusing to obey the
instructions of the Department. After some discussion, the
matter was laid upon the table.

to case of Charles A. Robinson, Co. G, First Massachusetts
Cavalry, the committee unanimously recommend its adoption.

Comrade Weymouth, in behalf of the Committee on Resolu-
tions, reported unfavorably on the resolution of Past Department
Commander Adams that the delegates to the National Encamp-
ment be instructed to vote to so amend the Rules and Regulations
as to prevent Past Department Commanders from holding per-
manent seats in the Department Encampments. The report of
the committee was adopted and the resolution defeated.

Comrade Chas. B Fox of Post 68, in behalf of the Com-
mittee on Veterans' Rights Union and Employment Bureau,
presented the following resolution, which was accepted and
adopted : —

Eesolvt'xl, That the subject of the support of the " Veterans' Rights
Union and Emplo5'raeut Bureau " l)e referred to the incoming Council of
Administration, with instructions to procure, if possible, an appropriation
from the Legislature in its behalf, in the belief that the efticient working
of the Bureau, the aid it has extended to disabled and destitute soldiers,
the widow and the orphan, the assistance it has rendered to comrades in
the presentation of claims for pensions or support, will amply justify the
appeal.

Comrade A. H. Spencer of Post ^ presented the following
resolution in relation to the Sons of Veterans' organization, which
was adopted : —

Resolved, That the Department of Massachusetts Grand Army of
the Republic, in Convention assembled, desire to express its appreciation
of, and cordial co-operation with, the labors of its junior organization
and legitimate heir and successor, the Sons of Veterans ; and to express

the sincere hope that the Sons may be prepared to take up and carry for-
ward our work when, by advancing years, we must relinquish it.

corrections he desired to make in his report, and which would
appear in the printed proceedings of the Encampment.

Upon request of the Commander, Past Department Com-
mander John D. Billings installed the following named comrades
into their respective offices : —
