crowned with Masonic emblems. Directly
over each entrauc- are semi-circular sun
bursts constructed of evergreens , Hags and
buntiiu' . Tlie building nrcsentcd a brilliant
appearance ,
All business houses were tastefully
dimmed. Washington avenue and Olive
stieet were cay witli llutturini : bunting.
Pine , Clu-itmit and Market streets had their
share of Hags , while less popular tho/ou h-
farcs had Hags on eveiy window which gave
tlie streets n gala appearance. Flags and
pennants were so thick on some stieets that
vlt-wintr them in porsiective | overv breeze
seemed to set tlie walls in motion. 'Immedi
ately in front of tlie main entrance to the ex
position tjullilinir , a reviewing stand had

When the Knlchts Templars awoke this
morning the clear skv ot last , cveninir liad
become overcast with clouds and a damp ,
northeast wind was blowing at considerable
velocity. At 8 o'colek a steady rain set in.
As early as 5:00 n. in. squads , companies and
ciinimamlfiies , many of them accompanied
by bauds of music , could have- been seen
hurriedly inarclilnc to. tlu-ir re.ndezvous.
Those who started thither early in ihc morn-
Ini : were more loitunate than their
br-itheia wlio at HiO ; : were strolling
to the apuolntcd places with ( Irooiiiiir
plumes and dripping uniforms. Earlv tliis
nidi nine tiaius weie all on time and depos
ited many e unmamlerlcs who had come to
tut- conclave tiou : points near St. Louis , nnd
they pioctvded i.iiuicdiatcly to tlieir positions.
At half past eight tins nrst cun iliiectiiu

streets leading into nnin thorough-

weie to pnitioipntc In tlio par.ule ,
hurrying to their positions and soon after
wards were all reauy to oln tiieir divisious.

catoil to tiio faithful kiiiglits who had been
standing in tlic lain ready to match , and
theiebv broke ranls , gieatly disappointed at
not being able to parade , out weio willing to
get In out of the wtt.
- Said Comiiiaii-U'r-In-Chlef Parsons : ' 'The
disappointment is itieater than I can ex-
piess. The airansciiu'iits were perfect to
the minutest details , \Vu Had impicssed Into
our service for tlio occasion tlie very best
military talent in this section , and were as-
suiedof somethini : over'.20,000 men being in
line at the strike of the apiiointed hour , and
liad tlie state of the weather permitted the
iiai.ule would have been the finest ever
known. As it was , however , nothing was
left but to abandon it and thus cut out one of
tno most prominent public features of the
conclave. "
Ninety local coinmanderlcs only were held
at tlieir headquarters to form an cscoit to the
grand encampment in case the weather would
allow even that small display. To tens of
thousands of spectators who had begun to
ciovvd the streets along the proposed loute of
the pioccsslon thodNappointmcnt wasnlmost
as griMt as to the Kniirhts themselves. The
decorations were drabbled and torn , wfiilo
the heavy wind which accompanied the rain
toro many fiom their bcaiings , and by 10
o'clock tlio spectacle was anything but beau
tiful and enliveuinir. In uvt-ry quaiter
stores doorways and eveiy place otl'erine tlie
slightest shelter from the dilving wind and
rain weio cio\\dcd with wet , bi-draggk-d
and thoroughly disgusted men , women and
childicn. The hotel lobbies nnd various
licadriuailers were tlnongcd with Knights
and their friends , bitterly bewailing the
misfortune of tlio morning. Xot only was
the abandonment of the parade made ncccs-
siry , but the continuance of tlie storm icn-
dend a repetition of frlumllv calls with
which yesterday was occupied impossible.
Numerous reviewing btands erected alonj
tlio route of tlio moposed piocesslon , which
early began to fill with sight-beers , presi > nted
a deserted and lonesome appearance , and
speculators who had pounted on handsome
lelurns on their Investment * in constructing
them , as they suw the prospective profits van
ish , voiced their disappointment in accents
stionger than those emplou-d by the
knights. The only people benefited by
the storm weie the keepeis of down-town
ii'sorts , whoso places rapidly tilled with those
who could tiiiil no other way of passing time ,
and the bticct car and other transfer people
whoso services werolngicat demand.
At the time set for the departure of mem
bers of the grand encampment from tlioir
renderous for Kncatupment hall , It was
deemed inadvisable to furnish any escoit ,
and the local coinmanderles which bad been
held in le.ullness to act in that capacity ,
were permitted to disperse , and the managers
of the encampment were taken to the hall in
carriages. The grand encampment bejan Its

On tlie conclusion of these preliminaries at

In tlio executive session the first business

while the fact Is deplored fiat o few contri

for the grandmaster. He also recommends
that the bonds of the crand tieasurcr nnd

The deputy grand n.aster reports the fol

sume original Jurisdiction. In the c.t'eof
Anderson dud. ) cominaiulery , chartered by

that on appeal the actmn of the ernnd cotn-

should cause conclaves of the new coiinu.itul-

and I trust that you will devote your time
only to such matters In regard to which an
honest difference of opinion may exist.
The acting grand master recommends that

shall decide it , Um grand master predicts that
