Owing to the desire of the delegates to get away the election of officers was brought up and GeDpriU W. H. Powell, of Belleville, elected eommander. The vote was: Powell, 453; McNuIta, 319, and lt was made unaniinous. C. T. Coleman, of Cantón, was elected senior vice commander, and B. D. Hubbard, of Neoga, junior vioe commander. The matter of selecting the location ol the enoampment next year comes up today. It will probably be left to the commander and a committee, and located wherever the best railway rates can be secured. Cairo still seems to be in tha lead for the honor. It is conceded that Commander Powell will retain Fred W. Spink, of Chicago, as adjutant. This fact flgured in the election.
