would suggest that Chicago be the place for holding our annual meeting next year and the year after.
The President:-That would supersede this motion entirely
Dr. Plummer:-That would give Chicago the next place, and leave the committee only to fix the time.
General Hickenlooper:-I think it would be well to refer that matter to the committee on time and place, and if the gentleman has any suggestion to make, to make it to that committee, and let it decide that matter, and so report to the Society. I might say in passing, that there are special reasons that will be presented for consideration by the Society why that motion should not prevail. It is understood that the Society is desired to meet there in the year following, to unveil and dedicate the equestrian statue of General Grant. So I know that I reflect their views when I say they would not prefer to have the meeting at Chicago next year.
The President:-This motion is a general proposition legally falling under some other question. If you will withdraw your motion, Doctor, I will let this go through, and you can go before the committee, if
choose. Dr. Plummer:-I withdraw the motion.
The President:- The next business in order is the selection of a committee to nominate an orator for the next annual meeting.
On motion of Colonel Dawes,
Resolved, That a committee of five be appointed to recommend an orator for our next meeting.
The President appointed Colonel Dawes, Colonel Cadle, Major Ware, Captain Chadwick and General Chetlain.
The President:—The next business in order will be the reception of reports. I will call for the report of our Recording Secretary.
Toledo, O., September 5, 1888. GENERAL W. T. SHERMAN,
President: Dear Sir:-*ithe total amount of money paid me by members of the Society since making my last report is $434, which covers money paid for fines, dues and certificates. The division of this money should be as follows: On account Permanent Fund,
$125 00 On account General Fund,
Making total of
$134 00 Your Secretary desires to call attention of the members to the fact that many who change their post office address fail to advise him and therefore their record cannot be kept correctly, nor do they get the reports and other papers they are entitled to.
Your Secretary desires also to bring to your attention the fact that we have no designated place where the badges of the Society can be secured, and suggest that some action in the matter should be taken by the Society. The party who made the first badges has gone out of business and at present sev. eral parties are making badges, none of which are standard, conforming to the original design. Respectfully submitted,
L. M. DAYTON,
Recording Secretary. On motion of General Stockton,
Resolved. That the report of the Recording Secretary be accepted.
NOTE.-Payments by members, from December 21, 1886, to December 10, 1888, on account of fees and dues.

Maj. L. H. Evarts, 3 00 General Chetlain:-I would make one suggestion; that is, in looking over the list of our members, I find that by some oversight the names of dead members are carried from year to year in the list. It makes no difference, because you know the fact; but these publications going into the prominent libraries of the country, they ought to be correct. Also, there are some four or five in the last list dead, carried forward in the
The Recording Secretary:~All have died within the last year.
General Chetlain:-Lieutenant Borland is carried on the live list; I think he has been dead five
years. The Recording Secretary:- I never have been notified,
The President:-I think, if some one will take the pains to notify the Secretary, he will put it in the list. There is no use notifying him that a man is dead until we know he is dead; we are dying fast enough, anyhow.
General Dodge:-I move that the Recording Secretary be requested to designate some person to furnish the badges.
The Recording Secretary:~That question has come up to me from the fact that I have seen different badges. They are making them various sizes, of all kinds of gold, and also of very cheap silver. Our members are buying them. Of course, we can't prevent them from buying them; but if a member wants one, he wants it right. The original dies from which our badges were struck have been destroyed. The badge was originally designed by General Hickenlooper, General Yorke and General Force.
The President:-I should think that Tiffany would manufacture them.
The Recording Secretary:~He made the dies originally, but has destroyed them, and won't make others without this approval. I have investigated, and he won't do it.
Colonel Dresser:-It would be well enough to suggest to the Secretary in making these badges that a certain fineness of gold should be provided for-not less than 14 karat.
The motion of General Dodge was carried.
The President:-The next report is the report of the Corresponding Secretary,
CORRESPONDING SECRETARY'S REPORT.
Toledo, O., September 5, 1888.
To the President and Members of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee:
GENTLEMEN.-I have the honor to report the preparation and transmittal of the official notice, or call, for this meeting, on the 1st of August.
