me Jiasonjc associatiou, or more
properly, tho convocation of Hie Gene
ral Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Ma
sons, is the latest sensation in this city,
this week, and makes the third of the
great public events here this summer,
the opening of the Exposition, heiug
the first, and the National Encampment
of the G. A. II. being the second. The
Masonic movements have nut been an
especially prominent allair, as their bu
siness is neccdsariij' of a rather private
nature. They had, however, a pretty
parade on Monday, and a day or two
since, lioper (jommandcry of Judianap
olis, gave a splendid exhibition drill at
the Exposition grounds. The election
of officers resulted as follows :

Out at the Exposition matters are
now in good running order, and allot'
the regular habitues are dwelling to
gether in harmony. The show is m a
good state of arrangement now, and
additions being made daily. Every
day there is music by Wolffi
orchestra a splendid organization,
and there have in the past weeks been
concerts by Pryoi's Military Band, of
St. Joe, and one day by a Chinese band
of eight musicians'.
A band of twenty Indians from the
Uintah agency has been here for sev
eral days, and every afternoon they
-give a war-dance, scalp dance, or some
other entertainment "in their own pe
cuiiar style." Last Sunday, Chief Jo
seph, who speaks good English, but
who totally disregards grammar, made
a speech in which he called everybody
good, and expressed upon the part of
self and followers the bett of inten
tions as to their future good behavior.
This band i3 a remarkably clean look
ing set of Utes, and includes two
squaws and several "pappooses." a few
years advanced upon the journey of a
copper colored life.
The Exposition is a good show now,
end is growing in attraction. Tho at
tendance is also on the increase, and
the prorpect is that the financial re
sult will be satisfactory. One of your
Nebraska journals gave a splendid no
tice of last year's Exposition which
reads just as well at this time and is
much better reading than any poor
word3 of mine.
In this letter, I will give a slight de
scription of some the exhibits in the
department of ores and minerals leav
ing more for future letters. I will be
giu with the exhibit of
The Arizona exhibit, excellent as it
was last year, is much nicer at this
time.- There have been constant addi

the display is one of the largest in the
building and combines the rich, the
useful and the bea utiful in an eminent
degree. There are here specimens from
about 500 properties iu weight, nine
tons, and in value some $5,000. One of
