Tlie Oregonian says that Oregon has
495 postoffiees. During the fiscal year
ended June 30, 1886, 192 of these were
filled by appointment—in most cases the
former incumbents being removed. This
is the record of twelve of the seventeen
months of the present administration.
The whole is not before us. In some ol

THE G. A. R. REUNION.
The reunion of veterans al San Fran
cisco is the grandest affair of the kind
ever held. Monday was the big day,
and to give our readers some idea of the
affair we quote a paragraph from the re
port to the News:
The entire population of the city was
out to witness the parade. Every win
dow along the entire line wa* filled w ith
spectators. Nothing approaching the
display was ever seen here before. A
continual cheering greeted thoee on the
line from end to end. As particular fea
tures came to view the applause was
deafening. The old battle flags, now in
rags, created the wildest kind of entbus
When General Sherman and
General Logan appeared in carriages,
the enthusiasm knew no bounds. To
ward the end of tlie parade they and the
stale militia, officers and grand encamp
ment officers review ed tlie parade. Sbei-
man and Logan stood in carriages, Shet-
man being nearest to the approaching
column, and every band struck up
“Marching through Georgia.” In this
they were joined by ail the veterans in
Both the old Generals
joined in the old war song heartily. The
cheers which greeted these old com
manders were tremendous, which were
returned by bowing. Many ot the old
soldiei s dropped from lino to clasp hands
with their old commanders. This neces
sitated a constant command to “move
on.” Scores of old veterans were to be
seen with tears streaming down their
faces for joy at seeing them. Of the
two, however, Logan received the great

made to unhitch his horses and to pull
his carriage by band, but the driver
finally managed to move on. Logan
then leaned over from the carriage side
shaking hands with tlie soldiers with
both hands. Thousands followed the
carriage for blocks unable to greet him.
Mrs. Logan stood in the window of the
Baldwin hotel and strewed flowers in
the path of the veteran generals. The
unanimous verdict on the affair is that
it was the grandest kind of a success.
No accident occurred to mar the harmo
ny of the day. 1 Business was entirely
suspended. The entire country sur-
rounding the city was literally drained
of its population, Tlie veterans are well
pleased with the day’s doings. Last
night tho hotels were the fullest of guests
ever known. All of them bad to turn
guests away, and even private houses
were nearly all full.
Following is tlie complete list of mem
bers of tlie legislature of Oregon, which
will meet in January next.
