CINCINNATI, October 24, 1889.

I respectfully submit the following report:

At the last report, there was in the Permanent Fund $11,500.00 of Government Bonds and $150.42 in cash.

It has since received from Colonel L. M. Dayton, Recording Secretary, $82.00, and from interest on bonds $160.00. Total receipts since last report, $512.00. Aggregate cash in this fund *992.42.

There has been no expenditure from this fund, but $166.35 was transferred from it to the General Fund to make complete payment for printing the report of the last meeting.

There remains in this fund $11,500 of Government Bonds and $826.07 cash.

There was nothing in the General Fund at the last report. It has received since the last report, from Colonel L. M. Dayton, Recording Secretary, $120, and from General A. Hickenlooper, Corresponding Secretary, proceeds of sales of consolidated annual reports, $22.50. There has also been transferred to it from the Permanent Fund $166.35, making aggregate cash in the fund $608.85.

The expenditure has been payment to General A. Hickenlooper for expense of the Corresponding Secretary's office for printing circulars and for envelopes, postage for the years 1884, 1885, 1886, 1887 and 1888, $101.85, and for wrappers and twine for consolidated reports $4.00, and for express, boxes, etc., to and from Chicago in 1885, $30; total, $135.85.

Paid for stenographic report of the proceedings of the last meeting, $41.60. Paid Safe Deposit Company for keeping the bonds one year, $6.30.

Paid F. W. Freeman for receipt book, $4.50, and for printing the report of the last meeting, $420.

Total expenditure, $608.85, leaving nothing in this fund.

As before, I have made a special deposit of the bonds in tne Safe Deposit Company, keeping the receipt in my box. As the treasurer should be of the same city with the secretaries, and I have moved to the Soldiers' Home at Sandusky, this will be my last report.



Colonel McCrory:-As I understand it, there seems to be in the winding up of that report, something about the selection of some other person for treasurer. If that is embodied, I recommend that that be rubbed out. If it is not true, I move that the report be received and adopted.

General Noble:-I hope that it will be referred to a committee.

The President:-General Force's reports have always been found so admirably correct that they have never been referred; not within my memory. The motion before us is that the report be accepted.

The motion was carried unanimously.

The President:—The next report in order will be that of our Corresponding Secretary.
