Tbey are not only lioeral and genial, but tbey

BTJSI TO THE VIET LAST.
The Clmntnuqnans Had a Programme That
Full Occupied Their Time.
israelii. TrtEGEAlI TO THE BISPATCH.1
ChatttaccjUA, August 3L People are stay
ing later than usual tbis year. Probably it is
mainly due to the perfect weather we are
having. Formerly Chautauqna has been al
most deserted at this time of the year. The
programme, too, held out unusually well. In
stead of having to exercise their ingenuity to
plan impromptu entertainments to fill up tbo
time, the management have scarcely been able
to find enough hours lor all they had on hand.
Tbe last day was as full as any. It seemed a
pity to come to a full stop w hen everything was
atitsbeigbt, Buiattbesame timeitlsarellef
to ba e tbe programme concluded, and to feel
that there is nothing one ought to attend.
While tbe grounds are being canvassed, after
the closing, to make sure that everyone has a
ticket before opening tbe gates, one is obliged
to show bis ticket at a moment's notice
wherever he may be. For instance you may be
accosted a half a dozen times on your way to
the postoffice with the .proverbial remark,
"Show your ticket, please." Argue as elo
cnentlv as you nill on tbe uselessness of such
a proceeding, you are invariably met with the
unanswerable argument, "Show jour ticket,
please." One is apt to be restive at first, but
he soon learns tbe futility of attempting to
cope with grim fate in the person of the ticket
The closing exercises were held Monday
'evening. They were very simple. Bishop Vin
cent made a touching farewell address, tbe
- doxology was sung, and the season of IiS9 was
pronounced at an end.
G. A. K. Day was a success. A large number
of veterans were in attendance. The celebra
tions really began the night before with a
camp-fire, consisting of addresses and patriotic
tones. Each speaker had some pathetic or
humorous reminiscence to relate. The next
day nas very lively. Tbe patriotism and en
thusiasm were contagious. Flags were flying,
bands playing and cannon firing. The princi
pal speakers were Dr. Paxton and Corporal
Tanner, the United States Commissioner of

Subject of trusts.

tbe attempt of a rascally lawyer to palm off the
daughter of a sturdy farmer, as the heiress of
a large estate. Incidental to the play are a
number of new sonas, dances, melodies, etc.,

The Boston Herald said of "Fine Feathers"
last week: "Miss Lizzie Evans scored another
success at the Globe Theater, last evening, in a
bright and entertaining play appropriately
named "Fine Feathers." Like 'The BucKeye,"
which Miss Evans produced during the early

Feathers'! was builded expressly for her, and
with a view to providing opportunities for the
introduction of a certain kind of comedv work
which this actress has presented with good re
sults." Frederick Warde's versatility may be expect
ed to sbow Itself in a remarkable degree during
his engagement that opens to-morrow at tbe

settles the truth that this composer is evidently
a most commonplace musician. His orchestra
tion is that of an amateur. He steals his melo
dies in a brazen way tbat would make Edward
E. Rice blush with mortification. We have
dozens ot men here who are his superiors at
all points. Mr. Rice would not be guilty of bis
steady flow of dull tunes, and Mr. Eerker, of
tbe Casino, couldn't get an engagement if be
possessed such a wretched technique as his
concerted numbers betray continually. Mr.
Faultou's fun is of an uncertain sort, utterly
Cockney in all regards, but occasionally suc
cessful, while never subtle. He has copied the
intricate absurdities of paradox in situation
and dialogue that W.S. Gilbert has made all
his'owo, and while it is laughable In spots as he
handles it, tbe profound wit of bis master is
never visible. The bumorof "Paola" Is planned
on burlesque lines. Tbe dialogue is devoid of
keen and sparkling repartee, but it has obnnks.
of farcial quips and quirks plugged through it
tbat send a protesting laugh over even tbe sen
sitive people in an audience. If Mr. Paulton
intended makiug only a mirth-provoking out
rage out of -his story, then be has come quite
near to realizing his intention.- -

THE NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT.
Proceedings Marked by Moderation- and
Good fienso A .Tribute to Mnjor Warner
Pennsylvania Solid for Alger New
From tbo- Posts,
The encampment of the representatives of
the Grand Army at Milwaukee last week
was a notable one. Tbe proceedings were
marked throughout with moderation and
good sense. The reports of the various de
partments show tbe organization to be in a
highly prosperous condition. The deep in
terest manifested by the publio at large ia
these annual meetings is an indication that
the veterans of the country still hold a place
in the hearts oi the people. Tbe high
standing of the organization may be judged
from the character of the men selected as
officers. The term oT Major William
Warner as Commander-io-Chief just closed
was exceptionally successful. The wise and
conscientious manner in which all bis duties
were discharged extended to every department.
His considerate and conservative course carried
tbe organization through a heated Presidental
campaign without ajar, that demonstrated to
tbe country that tbe G. A. R. is In reality a
non-partisan body. Everything like buncombe
was banished from bis admlnutration. Major
Warner's successors will do well to follow the
same line of conservatism by recognizing the
fact tbat no political party can claim as its own
all those who wore tbe blue in the battles for
Tbe officers elected are General Russell A.
Alger, Michigan, Commander-in-Chief; Colonel
A. G. Weiasert, Wisconsin. Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief,
and John F. Lovett, New
Jersey, Junior Vice Commander-ln-Cbief; Dr.
Horace P. Porter, Kansas, Surgeon General,
and Rev. W. H. Cbilder, ot Kentucky, Chap-laiii-in-Cbtef.
Captain William McClelland, of
Pittsburg, is agalu tbe Pennsylvania member
of the .National Council ot Administration.
As predicted in tbis column Pennsylvania
held a conspicuous place in Milwaukee. At
the conference of delegates on Tuesday even
ing General Alger became the unanimous
choice of tbe delegation for Commander-in-Chief,
and this action virtually settled where
tbe honor would fall, as the larger delegations
at once followed tbe course of Pennsylvania.
In the parade on Tuesday the complete uni
form, fine military bearing and soldier-like ap
pearance of tbe State delegation was greeted
everywhere with applause. Lysle Post No.
123, of Allegheny, acting as escort to Depart
ment Commander Stewart, headed by tbe
Grand Army Band and the gun squad of Post
41, received a continued ovation, and were tbe
recipients of marked attention by prominent
citizens and social clubs of the town. On
leaving Milwaukee yesterday morning the
Post was escorted to the train by 250 members
of tbe Calimet Club, composed of prominent
citizens. Commander Sample may well feel
proud of tbe honors showered upon Post 123 by
the people of Milwaukee.
Logan aiemorlnl Hall.
The Logan Memorial Hall, adjoining the resi
dence of Mrs. General Logan, on Columbia
Heights, Washington, D. C, is completed. The
ball is 15x40 feet with a lofty ceiling, erected to
preserve tbe memorials tendered Mrs. Logan
by tbe comrades of tbe General. Tbe ceiling
is of stained glass, representlnga blue sky with
stars; the border is of an amber shade nn
omamented. On the north and south sides of
the deep historic frieze are represented eagles
with tbe streamers extending from their beaks
bearing the names or the battle In which Gen
eral Logan participated. The features of the
west and east sides of the frieze are the coat of
arms of tbe United States and or Illinois. In
tbe corners are conventional representations of
Ivy, laurel and shamrock and thistle. A mar
ble bust ot tbe General is conspicuous, while
photographs, battleflags and other objects of
interest are hung against tbe walls or rest upon
easels. A low bookcase extends round the
room. Comrades visiting Washington have a
cordial invitation from Mrs. Logan to call and
view tbe hall and its contents.

General Halleck's report of tbe battle
of Gettysburg contains the .following tribute
to General George G. Meade: ' "The opposing
forces in this sanguinary contest were nearly
equal In numbers, and both fought with the
most desperate courage. The commander
were also brave, skilliurand experienced, and
handled their troops on tbe field with distin
guished ability: but to General Meade belongs
the honor of a well earned victory in one of the
greatest and bet fought battles of the war.1'
Much Indignation has been stirred np among
the comrades ot. the eastern part of the State
owing to tbe actions of tbe officials of the Mont
gomery Cemetery, at Korrlstown, in relusingto
permit Post 11 to bury a dead colored comrade,
named Henry Johnston, in that cemetery. The
refusal to permit the burial of the body on ac
count of tbe color of tbe man is bad enough,
but, just think, tha pet dog of a family named
Stelnmetz was burled in tbe cemetery with
great pomp. Johnston's body was finally in
terred in the Baptist bnrial ground.
BRUSH AND PALETTE.
The Exposition Gallery Contributions by
Famous Painters Hovr tbe Local Artists
Are Represented The Most Interesting
Exhibit West of the Mountains.
Of the complete success of the art exhibit
at tbe hew Exposition there bas not been tbe
slightest doubt for some time past. We
have Irequently been assured that the dis
play would be one of the most interesting
ever held tbis side ol tbe mountains, and
tbat this is now an established fact is fully
evidenced by tbe pictures already upon the
walls of the gallery. In the rooms devoted to
oil paintings by artists located elsewhere than
in this city a picture which attracts imme
diate attention on account of its size and the
ipromlnent position it occupies upon tbe wall of
the gallery is "The Puritan Bridal Procession,"
by C. Y. Turner. This picture is too well
known through reproductions to require com
ment, but the interest tbat attaches to tbe work
is greatly enhanced by its clever coloring, which
can only be seen in tbe original painting.
"Christopher Sly," by Chester Loomls, Is a
well-composed and well-handled wnrk, and
very clearly expresses tbe character of tbe be
wildered tmker. A magnificent work by Fred
erick W. Freer is entitled "Love's Token."
The subject isa young girl with a remarkably
beantlful face; examining a rose. Tho pose of
tbe figure is exceedingly graceful, the coloring
Is very fine and the work is well executed In
every respect. One can scarcely ask more of
Mr. J. H. Witt than he has given us in his pic
ture. "The Pick or the Orchard."
showing an excellently drawn figure
of a young woman sitting npon a fence
holding a basket of apples which shebasjnst
gathered. "It Might Have Been," a fine paint
ing of a young lady with a sadly pensive ex
pression seated upon a stone bench in a garden,
is tbe work of H. N. Hyheman, and a clever
work It Is. Mr. H. B, Poose, of Philadelphia,
is represented by his picture, "Pioneers," a
scene of frontier life with its covered wagon,
campflre burning anil horses grazing close by.
An otherwise beautiful stlll-llf d by M. Ronisey,
consisting of curi"s. roses. t(Von the corner
of a table would be vastly improved if Its yel
low background was made to retire a trifle
further back. A pleasant , work by DolphM
shows a fine loosing cog guarding a crauie
containing a sleeping child. "Tbe Dominie's
Daughter." by Hamilton Hamilton is a master
piece in its way; beautiful in conception and
execution. There is also another fine work by'
this artist, showing tbe figure of a young girl
on a hill overlooking tbe sea. There is a
longing, pensive look npon the face of the
girl, and a dog seated near by
stretches his bead toward her in' an endeavor
to express sympathy with a sorrow he can feel
but not understand. -Overdue" i3 the title of
a work by James G. Tyler. Tbe subject Is a
marine with a vessel that, from its appearance,
bas evidently bad a hard passage. A work by
Charles Stanley Reinbart, painted In Paris last
year, is better in conception than execution.
There are some magnificent landscapes, not
the least notable ol which is a work by Thomas
Moran. beautiful and rich in color, and with a
splendid effect of skyandclond. Tbe "Marshes
of tho Shiawassee," by Harry Eaton, is a noble
and original work; honest and straightforward
in style of execution and truthlul in color. Chaa.
Linford, formerly of Pittsburg, is represented
by a fine landscape, and J. B. Sword by a strong
marine wiib a very fine effect of storm-cloud
clearing off the sky. A. H. Munsell has a large
upright marine, one-half of which Is taken
up with tbe prow of a vessel drawn upon
avervlarge scale, the whole constituting a
very strong picture. Tbe above list is not
given as comprising all tbe best works exbi'i
ited, and in all probability it does not include
some of tbe finest and most important paint
ings. Those which have been mentioned
above were only such as conld be seen In a
somewhat burned visit to tbe gallery while
everytbing was in a state of confusion and dis
order incident to tbe opening and arranging of
COO or 700 pictures. Mr. E. A. Poole, an artist
whose work is well known In this city, sends
three pictures with titles as follows: 'Cum
berland Is., Georgia, a scene near where An
drew Carnegie has recently built an elegant
residence, "3" bridge. National Pike, west of
Washington, Pa., and the Potomac River near
In tbe room devoted to water color paintings
there area large number of pictures, Including
a few of surpassing excellence. Among the
first on the list must be mentioned Mr. Hrmil
ton Hamilton's "Noonday Rest," a scene in a
harvest field, with a brilliant effect of color
and bright sunlight. "A Summer Morning In
the North Woods," by F. Hopkinson Smith; a
picture of a young girl gathering wild flowers,
