Wcro Americans nnd nil tho principal
cities of tho country wore represented.
There wcro soino objectionable chnrnc

knights were comfortable, for they oc
cupied spuelnl couches and In many
cases special trains. Thoy wero accom
panied by their wives, daughters and
lady friends. The depot yards and tho
streets of the dty were tilled with
marching knights all day. Tho visit

across tho streets attached to which nro

tho general Illuminations of tho city
been shown. The streets wcro lighted
up for miles around with many colored
stringers, fancy emblems of masonry,
colossal search lights, und brilliantly
decorated arches. Tho electrical Il
lumination Is ono of tho main features
of the conclave entertainment and is
tho result of months of patient
work and study n well us tho
-expenditure of considerable money.
Tho contract was carried out by tho
Denver Consolidated Klectrlo Co. nnd
involved tho erection of a special plant
for tlii) purpose. It U the 'largest and
anost cxteiiblvo contract of tho kind-over
undertaken by any single oieotrlo com

Two other nrches near tlw depot arc
fitted out with 500 and 200 llghta re
spectively and over a score of emblems
on the public streota havo each from 80
to 200 lights. In addition to theso
street emblems intersection stringers
are so arranged as to harmonize with
tho other Illuminations and give to the

however, confined to theso publlo ilium
