Omaha is rapidly coming to bo rocognizce
As the center of the universe and the ono bcs
place in which to hold conventions. All gath
erlngs of Importance , composed of delegate :
wuo attend from all sections of the country
are becoming cognizant of the fact thai
Omaha possesses advantages equal to thosi
offered by any other city in this grea
and glorious republic , and they glvi
evidence of their appreciation of the strcngtl
of the argument by flxlne upon this , th
Gate City of the west , as the place for th
future meeting.
v The latest society to fall into line is tin
' - * Modern Woodmen of Amoi lea"which held It
bl-cnnlal session at Springfield , 111. , com
monchig on November 10 , This action of tb
head camp Is duo to the efforts of Dr. E. E
, „ _ Bloman , who during the absence of his col
leagues of the Omaha delegation , took I
upon himself to Invite the governing body t
hold its next session in Omnbn. nnd emplm
sized his Invitation by dwelling upon th
many advantages offered by this city. Whci
the matter was put to a vote Omaha receive' '
n large majority of the votes cast , the nox
place In favor being Madison , "Wls.
The next regular session of the head cam
will bo held In November , ISOa , but ill
highly probable that a special session of th
head camp will bo called during the Intorva !
in which case the camp will meet in Novon :
bcr , 1SU1.
A session of the bead camp means the
J,000 or 2,000 delegates will bo In nttendnnc
from all of the northern states for seven
days and It is reasonable to suppose the
these delegates will spend , on an average , f I
each , or an aggregate of 110,000 , which \\1
go into the pockets of Omaha merchants. 1
would seem good polir-y to entertain thci
well no that they may come again.
The matter of state jurisdiction was ono (
the most important brought before the hca
camp and was the subject of a great deal t
dobnto. It was developed during the cot
aldcration of the matter that the laws of U
state of Illinois , under which the soclcl
was organized , would not allow any dlvlstc
to asiumo the responsibility in the matter <
making assessments to pay death losses , bi
required that the head' clerk and a majorlt
of the board of directors should bo resident
of Illinois. It was therefore decided to ado ]
nsjstem of state Jurisdiction , in ovcrythli :
except the levying and collecting of asses
. menu to pav death losses and the board i
directors was ordered to make a thorough Ii
vcstlgntlon ot the matter and report to U
next meeting of the head camp a feasible pic
for state jurisdiction la all matters pcrtalnh
to the order.

A special communication of the grand lodge
was convoked to assemble nt the residence ol
the pro-grand master , from whence a proces
sion composed of all brethren desirous of dis
playing himself in regalia In the rear of the
grand lodge , would- pass to the cathedral.

informed that * 'tho ' police commissioner.
( Brother Fotorswald ) has kindly permitted
the services of the police band who will lead
the procession1 showing' that at the anti
podes , music has practical charms to soothe
the savage breast. Thus far good , but now
comes n very objectionable ami to our minds ,
an un-Miisonlc ! innovation. "Admission of
the general public to witness the ceremony
will bo by ticket , which may bo obtained
from the grand secretary at Freemason hall ,

two shillings six pence ( sixty-two cents ) . "
In other words , the solemn ceremony of lav

fice with high Masonic honors degenerated
into an open air , financial exhibition.

The experience of the Ccrncnultcs in the
matter of grand commanders who succes

Straugo to remark , author ot the resolutions
severing relations between that grand lodge
and the grand orient of Franco , Seymour and
Gorgas had once been members of legitimate
Scottish rite .bodies , i'cckhnra never had
been , and it was on this account that his
supreme council to a man passed over to the
Thompson Folgor revivalists , the grand sec

an "honorable nmalgatlon" of the two bodies
claiming n similar tltlo and a legitimate
debcont equally from the grand consistory ol

movement for consolidation has been and
over will bo hopeless , inasmuch ns the Gor <
man supreme council , known as the Veteran ,
will sanction no stop towards union with w

as spurious in the extreme. Nevertheless ,
to rectify In nn honorable way the wrong ;

a regulation flag , the other the post flag ,
under escort of the color guard and com
manded by thoofllcor of J.hodny , are admitted
o the post-room. The commander calls up
the post. While the comrades are singing
ono verso of the "Star-Spangled Banner" the
color guard nnd bearers advance to the altar
and thcro halt.Vneu the singing ceases the
post commander orders "present arms. " All
present salute , the color bearers dipping
their flags. At the order , "carry arms" the
color bearers pass each icthpr right and loft
and advance towards sthe commander's sta
tion or headquarters , and plant tbo
flags at tbo right of the post commander nnd
return to their position , i The post is then
seated , and the color-guard , under the com
mand of the ofllrer of tbo.1 day , in then dis
missed. As there is no patent on this little
ceremony , it Is worth w.hilq for other posts to
