As it is important that the inspections should be concluded on or
before November 15, it may be necessary to call special meetings of Posts
in some instances, therefore Commanders of Posts will govern themselves
accordingly.

The travelling expenses of the officers will be borne by the Depart-
ment, but all local expenses will be paid by the Posts visited. At each
inspection the complete ceremony will be shown, including muster-in, and
all books and papers of the Post, including records of the Relief Com-
mittee or Trustees, must be presented for inspection. A statement of
amount expended for relief, for the year ending September 30, will be
required.

Inspectors will insist upon a strict compliance with Section 1, Article
VII., Chapter 5, General Rules, Rules and Regulations, a blank bond hav-
ing been furnished each Post in the Department to secure uniformity.

II. The following new Posts have been organized since date of last
General Orders : —

J. Orson Fisk Post 105, Upton, Worcester Co., E. Warren IIarl)ack,
Commander.

L. L. Merrick Post 107, Palmer, Hampden Co., C. P. Stone, Com-
mander.

III. Since our comrades are interested in the advancement and suc-
cess of our Department, the Commander desires that the progress made
during the past six months should be communicated to the Posts, that
those who have worked so earnestly may see the results of their labors,

The Department on the first day of January of the present year
numbered 8,889 comrades; since that time, seven (7) new Posts have
been instituted and two (2) old Posts reorganized, and are now in active
working order. The quarterlj'^ report ending June 30 shows the aggre-
gate membership to have increased to 9,650 — a net gain of 761 members
for the first six months of the year.

Let us not feel satisfied with this improvement but continue the
work; let every comrade constitute himself a recruiting officer for the
Grand Army ; let no worthy soldier or sailor have occasion to say that
he has not been solicited to join our ranks.

IV. Officers of Posts will bear in mind that the reports for quarter
ending September 30 determine the representation in next Department
Encampment. In this connection attention is also called to the necessity
of forwarding reports promptly on the jlrst of the quarter, as less time
is given for consolidation by National Headquarters than formerly, and
by resolution of last National Encampment all Posts in arrears for reports
on the twentieth (20th) of the first month of each quarter are to be
reported in General Orders.

V. Information is wanted at these lieadquarters of the present
address of any member of Battery M, 4th U.S. Art., or G Battery, 5th
U.S Art., who served in either of those commands from 1861 to 1865.

VI. A person calling himself Charles H. Lynch, well posted in
G.A.R. matters, and claiming; to be a member of Post 7, G.A.R., has been
heard of recently in the central portion of the State Post 7 disclaims
any knowledge of him and he is believed to be unworthy. .

VII. The findings and sentence in the court-martial of William L.
OrciTtt of Post 40, G.A.R., are hereby approved, and the said Orcutt is
dishonorably discharged from the Grand Army of the Republic.

"God reigns and the governinent at Washington still lives." The
loug-sufl'ering stricken President is dead. The great heart of the Ameri-
can people could not shield the old soldier, and in the long contest
between life and death, death is again victorious.

To the roll of martyrs who have died to insure permanenc.v to
our republican institutions has been added the name of

James B. (3arfiel&,

and in long years to come, when our country shall have more fully
accomplished its mission among the nations of the earth, his name with
that of Lincoln will be honored and revered by all who love pureness of
life, honesty of purpose, and a true loyal heart.

All Department and Post Officers will for thirty days from the date
of this order wear the usual badge of mourning on the left arm and
sword-hilt when on duty, and the chartei* of each Post Avill be draped in
mourning in honor of our departed President and comrade.

No. 8. /

Comrades : As you are aware by circulars that have been issued by
the Trustees of the Soldiers' Home, active preparations are now being
made to liold a grand bazaar in the Meclianics Fair Building in this city
about the 1st of December or immediately after the closing of the
Mechanics Fair.

The objects of the bazaar should interest us, not only as members of
the Grand Army, but as soldiers. We have, through our Trustees, pur-
chased a Soldiers' Home, where all comrades who are sick and destitute
can be provided for. The only reason why those who are enfeebled because
of their faithful service during the war are not admitted to it — why it
is not at the present time sheltering very many of our comrades Avho are
unable to provide for themselves — is for the want of money to meet the
ordinary running expenses.

To provide this the bazaar is to be held, and the success it attains
depends greatly upon the support we give to it, individually, as members
of the Grand Army. Every Post Commander is reminded that the deter-
mination of this Department to establish a Soldiers' Home in Massachu-
setts has been so often expressed in Department Conventions, that the
vigorous co-operation of every Post is a duty. By charter, lifteeu out
of eighteen of the Trustees of the Soldiers' Home now established must
be members of the Grand Army. The Home, over which the old flag now
flies, is a Grand Army charity, and the most conspicuous and useful
monument to our destitute comrades that can be raised.

The Trustees have appointed large committees, including the Com-
mander of every Post in the State, to organize the bazaar in aid of the
Home. The citizens in many localities are already active in our soldierly
cause. These committees and citizens look to us of the Grand Army,
and reasonably expect the prompt, vigorous and whole-souled co-opera-
tion of the men whom the ettbrt honors and is intended to benefit.

Every Post is, therefore, expected to take some immediate action in
securing the aid of the people in its locality, in order to furnish an hon-
orable Home and Hospital for our poor, and to make the bazaar a success
as one of the means to carry out the will of the Department Convention.

Commanders of Posts will report immediately to these headquarters
what action has been taken by their Posts, and what is Ijeing done by
the people in their locality in aid of the Home.

GEORGE W. CREASEY,

Circular, \ Boston, Feb. 16, 1881.

No. 1. /

A special meeting of tlie Conucil of Adniiuistration was lield on Sat-
urday, 12tli inst., to discuss the pension question, but tlie importance of
the subject was so apparent that an adjournment Avas made to this
(Wednesday) afternoon when, after the most careful investigation, it
was unanimously decided that this Department should take immediate
and earnest action.

To this end a committee consisting of Commander George W. Creasey,
Senior Vice-Commander Benj. S. Lovell, Comrade Charles A. Stott of
the Council of Administration, and Junior Vice-Commander E. B. Loriug
of Post 15 of Boston, was appointed to proceed to Washington as soon
as possible, and secure such legislation from Congress before the close
of the present session as Avill relieve the existing over-crowded and sloAv-
moving condition of things.

There are at present over two hundred and eight'/ thousand (280,000)
unsettled pension claims on file in the Pension Office. New claims are
being presented at the rate of about two thousand (2,000) per month, and
the total number of claims allowed last year (1880) was less than 1.5,000
Therefore it will readily lie seen that under the present system the newly
filed claims cannot be disposed of, to say nothing of the hundreds of
thousands of claims that have been on file, many of them for nearly a
decade.

Comrades: This is a subject that is considered to be not only the
right, but the duty, of the G.A.R., to be interested in, standing as we do
as the representative soldiers' and sailors' organization of the Union ; we
owe it to the widows and orphans of those who "gave the last full
measure of devotion," and we owe it to those Avho stood shoulder to
shoulder with us in the " old days," but who do not appreciate as v-e do
the three great principles of our Order. Therefore in order to make
the burden as light as possible in the matter of the actual expenses of the
above delegation, the Council voted to ask for a contribution from each
Post of at least five cents per capita, and as the committee will start at
onre, it is especially desirable that remittances be made to the Assistant
Adjutant-General without delay A full account of receipts and expendi-
tures of this fund will be submitted to the Department.
