E.G. French has been appointed reprcient-
ntlvo to the Bupremo lodge vice J. S. Shrop
shire , resigned. A few weeks ago an item
was published lu this department to the ef
fect that Mr. Shropshire lAd removed his
family to Butte , Mont. , where ho is attorney
for the Union Pnclllc railroad , and bud , in
fact , tnado "a change in residence. " 'J bo
article further stated that Mr. Trench
would probably succeed Mr. Shropshire as
supreme representative , as that Was the do *
&lro of the latter. This item was copied In
nn editorial In ono of the Pythian publica
tions under the caution , "What Nonsense. "
The editorial then wont on to say. "This Is
a specimen of the reliable news which fre
quently appears In those Omuliu papers
which pretend to publish secret society
news , etc. , " and proceeded to denounce it as
utterly without foundation. The paper pub *
llshing this uncalled-for tirndu neve/1 struck
the nail more squarely on the head than
when it referred to the paragraph m ques
tion ns "reliable. " That it WOH perfectly
reliable iho sequel shows. Mr. Shropshire
forwarded his resignation to Grand Chan
cellor Macfarland aooti after his removal
from the sidle , but the latter did not tuko
anv action in lha matter until n few days
slnco. The appointment nf Mr. French Is a
well deserved recognition of that Kontie-
inan'a worth and lalthful service. lie held
the oOlco of grand keeper of records and
seals for twenty years , being theilrst person
elected to that position , and being ro elected
continually until the last session. Mr.
French Is ono of the best posted men on
Pythian law in the ntuto and Ispre-oinincntly
uuallllod to succeed Mr. Shropshire , who
was recognized as ono of the most prominent
members of the supreme lodgu. Groit re
gret was expressed when It became known
that Mr. Shropshire was to remove from the
state , but the appointment of Mr. French
will meet with the approval of all interested
parties. The term for which Mr. French
bus boon appointed expires at the next meet
ing of the grand lodge , wbon a successor
will bo elected.

New York Mercury savs "tho grand ledge
of Minnesota lias Issued a decree cranting a
monopoly of Scottish rite decree selling to
Brother Albert Pllco with an additional

It empowers him 'to adopt the first three de

while declaring no other society or organi

of soiling printed copies of the ritual of the

for this gross violation of his obligation * has
asserted that his degrees were of the Scot

sonry. Now ho is authorized to soil thorn ns
the standard work of Minnesota , und will
undoubtedly roiip a good paying harvest.
While smiling at the Ingenuity of
Pike's literary enterprise , ono must
laugh outright at the spectacle
of Minnesota's complacency in converting
