ECHOES FROM THE ANTE-ROOM Items of Interest to the Members of the Secret Organizations. GENERAL PYTHIAN NEWS. The K. of II. The A. O. tT. "WV Doings of the Knights of Honor General Bub- Itosa Gossip. ONB OF the youngest nud most prosperous Knights of Pythias lodges In Nebraska is En terprise , No. 79 , of South Omaha. In May 1887 this ledge was organized with twenty- eight charter members. To-day it has a mem bership of sixty , und is in a decidedly pros perous condition. Arrangements tire being made for a uuw and commodious hall to bo built by the lodge , UNIFOHM RANKS with secret organizations are becoming popular. There have been com- mandcries of the uniform rank Knights of Honor organized in Boston , Now York , Pitts- lleld , Mass. , Louisville , Ky. , and Dayton , O. Ax UNTLEASANT task has been set down for the United States marshal , at St. Louis , Miss Phoebe W. Couzzius , the daughter and suc cessor in ofllco of the late marshal , J. E. D. Couzins. While Marshal Couzins was con- lined to his bed , unable to attend to business , his able and loving daughter , Miss Phuebo , attended to it for him. The late marshal was n niember of Missouri ledge , No. 11 , of the Independent Order of Odd-Fellows and also of the Odd-Fellows' Mutual Aid association. The last named body is comixiscd solely of members of the I. O. O. F. , but is a separate incorporated body. The bcncilt derived from membership is $1,000 , to bo paid the family ut the death of a member. During Marshal Couzin's illness a member from each body called regularly each week , jiaid the weekly benefits and made their rejwrts. It was on one of these visits that the visitor In formed Miss Phoebe Couzins of dues accruing in both societies. She instructed him to re tain an amount suflleicnt to pay both dues , which ho did. The young man departed and the matter passed out of Miss Couzius' mind , until after the death of her father , when shu received notice that ho had been suspended from the Mutual Aid association for nonpayment ment of dues. Inquiry brought out the fact that the young mun did not fulfill his promise of paying the dues und the Mutial Aid asso- i-iationnow holdstothOBUsncusion. Thoques tion of payment is now in debate and there is Rome possibility of its being paid without re course to measures which Miss Couzins says BUO would dislike very much to take against the association. J , E. U. Couzins was a char ter member of the Missonrl ledge I. O. O. F. , organized la St. Louis in 1345. Ho was alsc one of the organizers of the Mutual Aid asso ciation , and never , as long as ho was a mem ber , did he fall behind hi his dues.

Instead of the supposed marshy island , there is a strip of dry , elevated land , with eleven miles of turnpike well graded , and seven or eight more miles of it yet in construction. The work has boon going on so quietly that the now assured utilization of the island will bo a surprise to the great mass of the people. Some 1,200 acres of this country hnvo boon purchased by a syndicate known us the East Omaha , Land Company , composed of leading railroad men nnd real estate dealers in Omaha. It is their intention to increase their possessions by the addition of 800 acres lying near it , and this great tract of 2,000 acres is to bo the future great manufacturing quarter of Omaha. The land is high and dry , and the greater portion of it has never boon submerged. In location it is admirably situated for the purpose for which it is intended to utilize it. Its nearest point is only a milo from the Omaha post- ofllco. Several ; manufacturing companies have already made arrangements to build factories on this tract , and the already assured works will employ over 1,500 men. Among these is iv box factory that will employ nearly 400 men , steve works that will employ 150 , besides glass works und other manufactories , each of whichwill give employment to a largo force of workmen. It is the intention of this land company to spend $20- 000 this fall in improvements OH the island.

The B. &M. nnd Union Pnoi'fio rail way companies will build , a track ex tending the whole length of the island on its south side , nnd will extend traekn to any portion of the tract wished by the manufacturers who are to locate there. Work on the main track is to bo com- inonccd immediately und is to bo fin ished in thirty days. The so-cullod island is about two miles long and two wide , but it re no longer an island us it is joined on the southeast with the mainland. It Is the intention of the syndicate to put good turnpikes around every forty acres , and lot the parties to whom the land is sold plat it and make whatever other divia ions they wish. Some of the factory sites have already boon selected , and oven spots for future homos have boon picked Out. The superintendent of the work of improving this tract is in the hands of Potter & C'obb , the enterprising real es tate firm located in the board of trade building on the corner of Farnuin and Sixteenth street. The opening of this island for manu facturing purposes will bo hailed with delight by all far-sighted citizens of Omaha , as this assures the permanent prosperity and future greatness ol Omaha beyond any reasonable doubt.
