Manager'PIiillips Talks About
tlie Home Team.
Buffalo Ball Players Kick Against
Colored Colleagues.
ir Beddy Gallagher and the Marine Hatched
to Fight
Manaeer Phillips was in & mood to talk
frankly about the local team last night and
the details of the recent trip. Horace is not
s man who is easily discouraged, and the
apparent shortcomings of the team while
away from home have little or no effect on
him. He also made a statement last even
ing which shows that all the players are not
in the best of condition. Daring a conversa
tion last evening be said:
'There is one feature that I want made clear
regarding our playing with the Association
clubs. I never termed any of those clubs
dubs.' I ha7e been quoted by papers of Asso
ciation cities as using that term, but the charge
Is false. We aidn't set out with the intention
of disparaging any team or anybody. While
practice was our great object we made reasona
ble effort to put up good games. The players
generally bave done well, considering that It
was their first effort of the season. In fact,
many of them bave done so well that there will
be great difficulty in selecting our regular nine.
The troubte will be in determining who we will
dispose of
Maul Is dlng well, and so are Nicol and
Coleman. They are doing such excellent work
that really at present I don't know who of them
would be best to keep. As usual, our pitchers
are behind in condition. It seems that this is
our trouble every season, and I'm sure we offer
every reasonable inducement to them to get
into line. Conway has gotten a cold In bis arm,
but I don't think it is of much significance.
Of course I am well satisfied withLauer, but
be also has an injured arm; at least it is
poisoned. The dye of his new uniform pene
trated a sore on his arm, and poisoning set in.
His arm is considerably swollen, but the case is
not a serious one. He will be a great catcher,
I think.
"We will not select our team until, after all
the exhibition games and even then we may
keep some of the vounger players who arc not
assigned to a regular position. Allen has not
bad a fair chance yet.
in the game that he played and was extremely
afraid of his ankle. Altogether, I am confident
that we have a stronger team than we bave
ever bad. All that is needed now is good
practice twice a day, and this must be done.
Of course our trip West was not a brilliant one,
but if we had stayed at borne we couldn't bave
bad the practice that was gotten on the trip.
During our absence the grounds at Recreation
Fatk have only been in condition to play on
two days."
Regarding the comparison made by certain
writers about McPhee andDunlap, Manager
Phillips said: "Now let it be understood that
Dunlap during our trip was not so foolish as to
run any danger of hurting bis ankle, or injur
ing himself in any way. Fred simply says wait
until the warm weather comes and we are out
for the stuff, and then people can judge as to
good or bad playing. McPhee is a cood player,
EutDnnlap is just as good. Fred, at any rate,
is good enough for us. or anybody else for that
The Allegnenies will play at Johnstown to
Jay -against the dub at that place. Galnn and
Miller will be the Allegheny battery. The
players will leave about 8 o'clock this morning
and return this evening. On Wednesday and
Thursday the Toronto aggregation will be here.
The Syracuse Stars will follow for three cames,
and there will be no more contests until the
Chicagos come and open the championship

The Homesteads and the McKeesports
opened the County League season on Saturday
on the grounds of the former. The game was
fairly well attended, but was poorly played.
Homestead fielded wretchedly and batted poor

ebony second baseman, is not likely to play
with the Baffalos this year. Manager Rowe
has been looking for Grant and Cliff Carroll
with a view to signing them. Grant played
with the Cuban Giants in Washington yester
day, and In reply to an inquiry said be would
;- sign only for 230 a month.
This is considered too high -and the other
Vmembersof the nine threaten to rebel if he
ilPlays. Last year they refused to bave their
pictures taken on Grant's account and objected
to traveling with him. The boys acknowledge
Iithat he is a good player, but they are in re
'hellion just the same. Their sentiment Is that
colored men should not play with white men.

Some Interesting: Matches Talked of by the
The echoes of the pedestrian contest were
numerous and interesting yesterday. Almost
all the contestants were at the Central Rink
and bad a look at the track on which such a
stubborn contest took place. Golden was more
broken up than any of the others. Hegelman
looked like a shadow, but "his legs were all
right. Noremac was just as chipper as ever.
The sheet keeptrs bave completed the fig
ures regarding the amount of sleep each of the
five winners had during the week. Correctly
speaking it cannot be called "hours of sleep,"'
but the time each was absent from the track.
The list is as follows: Horan, 24K hours: Nore
mac 23 bqurs and 37 minutes: Hegelman, 4
hours per day; Connors, 28 hours; Golden, 28
There is considerable talking about matches
among the pedestrians. During yesterday
afternoon Messier stated that be was prepared
to walk any man in America 100 miles, bar
Hoagland. George Cartwrigbt at once offered
to match a man against him but Messier de
ferred putting up a forfeit until later. There
was a talk of a 2mil race between Peter Heg
elman and E. C. McClelland, of this city. The
latter is willing to run Hegelman 25 miles and
a race between them is likely to be arranged.
Almost all the pedestrians except the
five winners will remain in the city to take part
in the 12-hour consolation next Saturday.

This date is too early for Gallagher, who can
not get to California or in proper condition by
May 28. President Fulda is now considering a

following challenge:
"I will walk H. O. Messier, of Den rer, a heel-ana-toe
race of 25 or 50 miles for $200 or $250 a

Mr. Carnegie Will Support Representative
Wherry's Ami-Discrimination Meas
ure Through Thick and Thin
Hope at Leant In the
Near Future
Habbxsbuso, April 14. Representative
Wherry is in receipt of letters from Andrew
Carnegie, in which that gentleman declares
that he is in the anti-discrimination fight to
stay, and will support Mr. Wherry through
thick and thin. He will carry the fight
through to the next session of the Legisla
ture if a bill does not pass this Legislature,
and it is quite likely the'fight will have to
be made there, and before the people.
Mr. Wherry said to-day: "The good
Lord and the people of Cumberland county
willing, I will be in the next Legislature to
help make this fight. Here is where I want
to be and not in the State Treasurership or
A Republican member, speaking on the
subject to-day, said: "There is this peculiar
feature about the Knights of Labor peti
tions for Mr. Wherry's anti-discrimination
bill, that none of them were presented
through the regularly appointed legislative
committee. There is also a peculiar feature
about the Knights of Labor legislation of
the session that has succeeded, and that is
that it all came from Democrats."
The prospects of any legislation adverse
to the railroads going through the Legisla
ture at this session are verv slight, but it is
more than pfbbable that the bill that will
be taken up is the railroad commission bill
of Mr. Williams, of Luzerne.
The Williams bill was introduced on
February 5, and was reported by the Rail
road Committee, with a negative recom
mendation, on February 22. It provides
for a commission of three persons, at sala
ries of $3,500 each, with $300 additional to
the one elected chairman, and a secretary at
52,000. The duty of the commission is to
know all about the railroads of the State,
and fjpr that purpose it is to have access to
all books, papers, etc, of railroad corpora
tions, and may through the courts compel
the production of these, when they cannot
otherwise be obtained. It shall examine
complaints of shippers against railroad com
panies, and its finding shall be accepted as
evidence in any judicial proceeding. The
commission is given no power to punish of
fenses, and the bill does not define any of
fense, except refusal to give the commission
fall and free access to all information, upon
report of which to the Attorney General he
shall take such action as he deems expe
dient. It is made a misdemeanor for the com
mission, or any of its members, clerks,
agents, etc, to disclose the business of one
corporation to another. The commission is
designed to see that the railroad companies
obey such laws as exist, and to ascertain
whether they are violating them or not.
After that it appears it can merely recom
mend, and if the railroad pfficials do not see
fit to adopt its recommendation, the only
recourse of the complainant is to go into
ithe courts. It may be intended to make the
bill a basis for something stronger.

His Position as Manager of the Grandest
Ball of the Century.
But Ward Claims That Members Were Jealous of
His Superior Still.
Ward McAllister will resign as manager
of the 'Washington inauguration ball. He
takes the request of the committee to with
draw very coolly, and naively tells a re
porter how he came to get himself disliked.
As for the committee, its members say the
famous 'Ward is getting too old to conduct
such an affair, if, indeed, he ever was able.
New York, April 14. Since Mr. Fish's
Centennial Entertainment Committee clip
ped Mr. McAllister's wings on March 21,
thereby reducing him from a position of
power to one of empty honor and a badge,
the committee and Mr. McAllister have not
met On Friday he received a notification
that there would be a meeting, of the com
mittee in Mr. Fish's office on Saturday. It
was the same lormal notice that every other
member of the committee received. Mr.
McAllister did not care to attend, but he
did want to know what was expected of
him. He wrote a note asking for that in
formation, and received a polite request to
resign his place as manager of the ball.
A member of 'the Centennial Committee
said to-day that the best thing Mr. McAllis
ter could do was to act upon the polite sug
gestion. "The whole thing in a nutshell,"
said he, "is that "Mr. McAllister is getting
pretty well advanced in years. He must go,
you know. "Well, it is natural that a man
ofhisyears but I'll tell you theFntertain
ment Committee is not made up of the kind
of men that can be bossed by any dema
gogue, big or little, old or young. Take a
look at five men who are on the commit
tee, for instance, take "William Jay, Stuy
vesant Fish, "W. "W. Astor, "William K.
Vanderbilt and Robert Goelet. You'll
have to look far before you can find five
other voun? men of equal ability and in
fluence. Do you think they are the sort of
men who will submit to bossism?
Mr. McAllister said this afternoon that
he would now resign. He explained that
the committee's letter was not a dismissal.
The committee had no power to dismiss.
His resignation from the committee has
been draughted.
"My object," said Mr. McAllister this
afternoon, was to do all in my power to
make that ball a success. I am not a man
who seeks work, you understand. I have
the interests of the ball at heart, and if the
committee thinks I can best serve the good
interests of the ball by resigning, then noth
ing will give me more pleasure than to re
sign. I have no resentment for the com
mittee, and if they want my help or advice
in any way, at any time, Iwill most cheer
fully give'it to them. I do feel, vou under
stand, a little stronger on balls than a rail
road president. You don't run balls and
railroads the same way, though both oi
them do make fast time.
"Mr. Gerry once told me," continued Mr.
McAllister, "that it did not make the
slightest difference whether you had bon
bons or pork and beans at a ball, or whether
half the ticket holders got in or not, for the
crowd, so long as you had a big crowd there.
That was his idea of a successful ball. I
replied to him that anyone who went to a
ball and suffered on account of the crowd, or
did not get a first-rate supper, or first-rate
wine, and plenty of both, had a perfect
right to say he was swindled. You see, we
differ on some points."
"Why do you think the committee took
this move?" asked the reporter.
"It is undoubtedly all Mr. Fish's doings,"
said Mr. McAllister. "He's been stirring
the other members up. "Why, only a short
time ago, when I gave up my books to Mr.
Morris, the new secretary.I told himl would
resign with pleasure, if the committee was
hostile, and ne replied that the committee
was not hostile, and would be very glad if I
would go right along with the work. His
letter of to-day was the next thing I hear.
"The whole trouble came of three causes.
There's a mighty interesting inside history
to it, you know. The first cause was my op
position to Fish's desire to turn the whole
ball and banquet into a Republican ova
tion. I made a great many objections to
certain proposals that clearly tended in this
direction, and with that began the first
estrangement between us. "Why, Mr. Fish
went out to Indianapolis last fall to see if
Harrison would dance in the opening
quadrille. Harrison, naturally, refused,
and actually, sir, Fish telegraphed me that
the quadrille would have to be abolished,
because Harrison wouldn't dance. That is
one instance. Gerry was with them in the
desire to make it a celebration of the Re
publicans' return to power.
"The next thing in which I came in con
flict with the men who are running the af
fair was my opposition to Mr. Gerry's de
sire to sit at the head of the table, near the
President. The place belonged to Mayor
Grant, who was Chairman of the whole
committee. Mr. Gerry was only Chairman
of the Executive Committee. I held to the
point that the place belonged to Mayor
Grant. Mr. Gerry Faid something, I be
lieve, about Mr. Grant not being able to
carry the thing through, but Mr. Grant
finally got the place. That started an op
position to me right away, on the part of
Mr. Gerry, which has unquestionably been
a factor in this trouble. There is another
matter that was very potent, but I won't
speak about it, because if involves the
names of ladies."
"I suppose you refer to the selection of
ladies to dance in the quadrille," suggested
the reporter.
"I do," said Mr. McAllister. "I made
out a list that meant something. I knew
Mr. Fish wanted a different list, but his
list I
by agreeing with. In this affair I could
have accepted his list only by making a fool
of myself. The name ol the dance qua
drille d'honneur demanded age, distinc
tion and prominence in those selected for it,
or if not age, it at least demanded the other
two qualifications. At the ball given to
the Prince of "Wales on his visit here, about
30 years ago, such ladies as Mrs. Governor
Morgan and Mrs. Bancroft danced the
quadrille d'honneur. It seemed to me ap
propriate that this dance should be given
by people who were descendants of the men
and womenwho stood around "Washington
in the opening dance of his inauguration
ball, and I modeled my list on this idea."

StnyTesant Fish Bays McAllister Could Get
Up aPntrlarchs' Ball Quite Well,
Bat This Contract Wis Too
ninch for Him.
New York:, April 14. "The committee,"
said Stuyvesant Fish, to-day, "has been
trying for a long time to get rid of Air. Mo
Allister, and they are mightily tickled now
that they have succeeded. When
the sub-committee was appointed to relieve
Jiim of his duties as Secretary, they found
A" ,-
that he had entered into a great number of
absurd verbal contracts and agreements.
All of these they as, gentlemen have as
sumed and will nbw carry out. Mr. McAl-,
lister's withdrawal will not injure the ball,
seriously or otherwise."
"I will pay him one compliment," con
tinued Mr. Fish. "His arrangements about
the box tickets were excellent , All the de
tails for the ball are now complete, the con
tracts are made and the boxes are sold. Mc
Allister will do very well for the manager of
a Patriarchs' ball. That is quite a difierent
affair from this. Then he would have to
provide for only 400 persons, and spend
only about $5,000. Here we have to pro
vide for 800 persons, at an expense of $100,

Patriarchs ball? He goes to Delmomco
and says: 'Give us another.' Then he goes
to Johnson and savs: 'Give us another
400 carriages, just like the last' The only
changes he needed to make in the Delmoni
co order was to substitute different colored
globes for the lights, a different brand of
wine, flowers of a more seasonable kind or

"This talk about the McAllister 400 is all
nonsense. It was Charles Delmonico who
created them, by his building of a ballroom
that would accommodate just that number.
There are two 400's in this city. My brother
belongs to the McAllister 400, and I belong
to the other. McAllister is a very good
dandy, but he is utterly incapable of look

That's the Belief or Senator Sherman

Other Editors and Senators.
Part of the United States Senate was at
the Union depot last evening, Senators
Spooner and Philetus Sawyer going home,
and John Sherman returning to Washing
ton to see the ".President, possibly about
Ohio appointments.
It is not more than a week since Senator
Sherman was interviewed in Pittsburg; but a
man of his experience and ability has al
ways something new to say. Here's his
No, the rejection of Mr. Halstead by the
Senate will not improve his chances for the
Governorship of Ohio, for tho simple reason
that he Is not a candidate. Mr. Halstead
doesn't want anything. He wasn't even
anxions to go to Germany, and the honor came
to him unsought. The Senate certainly made
a ereat mistake in reviving the Payne case. It
is ridiculous to call up newspaper articles.
Mr. Halstead has a kind heart and is witbont
President Harrison has appointed a number
of editors to Imnortant positions, hut there is
nothing remarkable or strange In that. Gen
eral Jackson did the same thing.
As for the alleged snubbing of Mr. Blaine by
the President, and the rumors that the former
will soon retire from the Cabinet to preserve
his dignity, these are journalistic stories.
I am glad the Senate has lately disonssed
diplomatic problems with open doors. The

Samoan difficulties were considered In Dublic"

questions in secret, and why should weT
Certainly, I bave always been in favor of de

wouldn't subsidize a line of steamships; that
word subsidy is odious: but I would pay a good

taken there or not Like the man who spends
money for a few years in building up trade
from which he will reap profit In the future,
such a system would materially increase our
South American commerce.
Senator Sawyer said that the President
had turned out of office twice as many,
so far, as Cleveland did in the same time,
and he thought this was sufficient to show
that Mr. Harrison is not moving too slowly,
as the politicians complain.
Senator Spooner remarked that the Demo

and they are responsible for the rumors cir

Waiting OJ&ce Seekers Put to Work by
One Shrewd U. S. Senator.
Speculation as to theBesnltof Two Pend
ing Courts Martial.
Snperintendeat Bell, of the Foreign Moll Serricf, and
His Wort
A Senator has found a way to made office
seekers useful. He tests the depth of their
desire to obtain work by asking them to as
sist him in answering his correspondence
while they wait. Army and navy circles
in "Washington ate gossiping about the ont
comejof a couple of pending courts martial.
Superintendent of Foreign Mails Bell is
more anxious to give up hisjob than the
administration is to have him go.
"Washington, April 14. A United
States Senator has hit upon a novel plan for
testing the faithfulness and sincerity of
office seekers. The Senator has a large
mail, and cannot afford to "cm ploy the neces
sary clerical help to handle it. so when a
man applies for an office the Senator sug
gests that while he is waiting for the ap
pointment to be made that he five him a
little of his time instead of holding down a
chair in the hotel lobbies; If the applicant
Is the right sort of a man, he takes hold
with a will and soon' gains the favor of his
patron. The scheme has served to throw
out a number of the leeches who hang about
the rooms of the public men, taking up
their time, interfering with their work, but
never volunteering to help them in any
The Senator, however, is very much em
barrassed about one case: A faithful con
stituent has put in all his time since the
yU a fAPAri wn1rin l-tnvrl and ino Cart
ator has not yet been able to secure any-.
thing for him, though he has haunted sev
eral of the departments in his interest. He
fears now the man will think he is using
him, and that he will bring suit for services
Army and Navy Circles Spccnlntlnir on the
Lydecker nnd Armes Cases.
"Washington, April 14. All the talk
in army circles is the probable outcome of
the Lydecker and Armes courts martial.
The trial of Major Lydecker for neglect of
duty, in failing to give proper oversight to
the great water works tunnel for the Capi
tol, was long and searching. The finding
of the court has been in the hands of Major
General Schofield for seyeral days, and will
probably be approved and made public
within a day or two. It is whispered about
that the sentence of the court is that the
Major shall be 'suspended from rank and
duty for a period of two years.
As to the Armes case, it is a general
opinion that in consideration of the Cap
tain's peculiar temperament, and on ac
count of his" record for bravery during the
war, the sentence will be a light one, proba
bly censure and a brief suspension. It is
understood that Governor Beaver, while too
much of a soldier to attempt to interfere
withlhe severe discipline of a court mar
tialr has expressed a hope thafno supposed
indignity suffered by him will procure any
additional punishment for Captain Armes.
The Captain has been anything but war
like since the beginning of the trial, and is
said to keenly regret his indiscretions. It
is asserted by some of his friends, however,
that if opportunity offers during the course
of the trial the Captain will explode a
bomb by producing sworn evidence in re
gard to the conduct and transactions of
some of his enemies who are high officers
that will be decidedly startling.
Armes feels that he has always been
hunted and persecuted by a certain army
clique, and will do anything he can by way
of retaliation, if driven to the wall. His
former trial, which resulted in his dismissal
from the army, was shown to have been a
disreputable conspiracy, the chief actors in
which were themselves soon dismissed lrom
the army in disgrace, and while the Cap
tain's erratic but really harmless, conduct
in connection with the inauguration is
deemed worthy of some formal action, the
hearings of the court would arouse like in
terest, were it not for an expectation that
Armes will produce something sensational
in his defense.
Superintendent Bell, of the For elan Mall
Service, a Bard Official to Beplnce.
"Washington, April 14. One of the ap
pointees of the late administration who is
most anxious to surrender his place to a suc
cessor is Mr. Nicholas M. Bell, Superin
tendent of Foreign Mails in the General
Postoffice. Mr. Bell has been from the time
oijiia appointment one of the most popular
gentlemen in the publio service. Having
important warehouse interests in St. Louis,
the city of his residence, he presented his
resignation to Postmaster General Wana
maker almost as soon as that gentleman was
inducted into office, but it has not yet been
accepted, and no successor has been ap
pointed. During Mr. Bell's incumbency he gave
special attention to the extension of tne for
eign mail service, and at the time of his
resignation had negotiations well under way
by which the conveniences of the parcels
post would have been in operation between
the United States and every South Ameri
can Stafe. At present nothing except a let
ter or a newspaper can pass by mail between
this and the South American countries,
and this renders it so expensive to send
small parcels as to almost prohibit their
transmission. '
A young Spanish South American from
Ecuador desired the other day to write a
friend residing at Quito to forward him a
few boxes of cigars, which are made there
at about tliree for G cents, but which are
superior to cigars sold in the ordinary
shops of the United States at any
price. He inquired of Mr. Bell what it
would c6st to have them brought by mail,
and was informed by the superintendent
that they could not be mailed at all. He
discovered that the only channel through
which they could be transmitted was a sort
of express arrangement between the two
countries, and that the carriage of a box of
SO cigars between South. America and the
United States would cost about $18,exclusive
of duty and regardless of their value.
Had Mr. Bell remained in office the ar
rangements for the parcels post would have
been completed within a few weeks, but the
cessation of correspondence touching the
matter, and the probable inexperience of
Mr. Bell's successor, will doubtless defer
negotiations ior six months or a year.

Brief Sketch of BU Life.
We may watch for it never so anxiously;
anticipate its approach with all the precau
tions the human mind can coneeive, yet
Death, the unbidden messenger, comes into
our midst at last an unexpected guest, and
we shrink before the chilling shadow of
his approach just as if his advent had never
been thought of, and as if it had not been
inevitable. This is tne sad fact forced home
upon the mind of the writer as
he sits dowa to say on pa-
per tnat Major Sidney Omohundro,
his friend the friend of many hundreds, if
not thousands, of good men in "Western
Pennsylvania is dead. It had been looked
for, and dreaded, both in that' model house
hold on Meyran avenue, Oakland, and out
of it; but that hope which srrings
eternal 'in the human heart had caught at
every ray of sunshine that darted through
the shadows, and well, they said, and all
fondly hoped that "he was better."
He is better now, good man ! But be
cause he was so exceptionally kind and
good and worthy of respect among all his
fellows, it is said, for all who Knew him to
say "goodby," and feel that they shall look
into his friendly eyes no more.
Major Omohundro died of typhoid pneu
monia, at his home, foot of Meyran avenue,
Oakland, about 1 o'clock, this morn
ing, after a very severe ill
ness ol only a little more
'than two weeks. He was so near deaths
door a week ago that hundreds of his
friends began anxiously to inquire as to his
hopes of recovery, and none seemed ready
then to accept the verdict that he must die.
They hoped, the 'physicians conferred again
and again, and, gradually, as the sufferer
lingered at the very threshold, and then
seemed repeatedly to turn back and
take another faint hold on life, (here went
forth the expression'that he simply must re
cover. He had been very ill in the sum
mer of 1887, but had got around
yith plnck enough to ride in the
E recession on Grand Army Dav (although
e was still a sick man); and everybody
hoped the unflinching courage of the man
was to pull him nicely through again. But
this was not to be, for, although he seemed
so much better that his son, as late as yes
terday morning, felt encouraged enough to
almost believe the crisis past, it was only
the twilight gleam that precedes the fall of
Sidney Omohundro was born in Cincin
nati June 22, 1842, and immediately after
his collegiate education enlisted, August 31,
1862, in the Fourth Ohio "Volunteer Cavalry,
which was la regiment composed almost
exclusively of the young business men
of the Queen City. His regi
ment participated in the principal battles of
the "West and was with General Sherman in
his famous march to the sea. Omohundro,
after the war, studied law and did considera
ble journalistic work in Cincinnati; then he
engaged in mercantile pursuits until his
health failed him. and finally acain tookuD
newspaper work. He is a chair officer of
.rostd, and was a delegate to tne last three
State Encampments, an alternate to the St.
Louis Encampment and a delegate to the
Columbus Encampment. He was unani
mously elected Commander of the "First G.
A. B, Division", and also is Secretary of the
General Court, and Chairman of the Court
on Invitations, which position he has held
for several consecutive years.
He was also prominent in Sunday school
work; was elected in 1868 to the
Iionorableand : responsible position of
President of the Sunday School Union of
the M. E. Church, of Hamilton coun
ty, Ohio; taught class at the Lib
erty Street M. E. and Smithfield
M. E. Sunday schools in this city, and was
identified with the work in Erie. He had
been Superintendent of the Oakland M. E.
Sunday school for a number of years.
Major Omohundro held ope of the most
important positions in the business office of
TnE Dispatch, which he had filled, with
exceptional fidelity, ability and popularity
for more than two years last past. In addition
he found time to attend to all tlimany
calls of fraternity which could nWbut be
exacting upon oneconnected with so many or
ganizations, both among Union veterans
and in other societies. Ho edited the
best Grand Army column that the veterans
read, attended the gatherings of his own
post and others; and, wherever he went,
either among the best business naffer the
leading veterans, that friendly, Sincere
smile of good fellowship and unexceptional
good will was sure to be reflected from the
faces of those who encountered and were
warmed by it.
Whether! hey shall all be able to gath
er about his bier or not, there will
be more mourners on the day of Major
Omohundro's funeral than have grieved to
gether for many a day. To the family, Ed
ward, Erwin and Mortimer the three sons
and their widowed mother, a very sympa
thetic, tender feeling will go out.
The arrangements for the funeral are not
yet, completed.
