The above officers were elected yesterday
at the thirty-fourth annual convention of
the Grand Lodge, Knights of Pythlaa of
the domain of Iowa.
Waterloo was selected as the place of
the Grand lodge In 1904.
The Grand lodge placed itself on record
ns being favorable to the recognition of the
Rathbone Sisters and Instructed Its repre
sentatives to the supreme lodge to vote In
favor of a measure to extend recognition to
the Rathbone Sisters as a woman's auxil
iary of the Knights of Pythlaa.
The proposition to establish a Pythian
sanitarium at Colfax was made a special
order of business for 9 o'clock this morn
ing. By resolution the Judiciary commit
tee was Instructed to formulate a plan for
changing the method of election of grand
lodge officers, It being suggested that they
be elected by the subordinate lodges.
The reports of the several grand lodge
officers showed that the order had made a
material Increase In membership during the
preceding year and that its finances were
in excellent shape with a handsome bal
ance In the grand lodge treasury.
Welcomed to Cltr.
Preceding the opening business se salon of
the Pythian grand lodge yesterday 'morn
ing in the New theater there waa a Joint
meeting of the grand lodge and grand
temple Rathbone Sisters at which a wel
come was extended to the visitors by
Mayor Dell G. Morgan. , Grand Chancellor
O. M. Gillette, Mrs. Belle Quintan, supreme
chief, and Mrs. R. I. Robinson of Oelweln,
past grand chief Rathbone Sisters, made
addresses In response. Clem F. Kimball,
chairman of the local executive commit
Mrs. Belle . Qulnlan of Gnlesburg, 111.,
made a strong plea for the recognition of
the Rathbone Sisters of which she is su
preme chief, by the Pythian supreme lodge.
She proved herself a. most eloquent advo
cate of the cause she was pleading and
her address undoubtedly was responsible
for the subsequent action of the grand
lodge In Instructing Its representatives to
the supreme lodge to vote in favor of the
official recognition of the Rathbone Sisters.
Mrs. Qulnlan said that while the Rathbone
Sisters were seeking recognition as a
woman's auxiliary to the Knights of
Pythias and to which she felt they were
oertalqly entitled, they did not want to
be "adopted" or taken under the wing of
the supreme lodge In such a way as would
curtail or take away any of their rights
to govern themselves. All they wanted was
official recognition. The Rathbone Sisters,
she said, had got to that point where they
had to be reckoned with. She did not fear
for Iowa as the knights of Iowa had always
recognised the order as an auxiliary, but
there were some states where the order
was not so well known who would prob
ably oppose its recognition by the grand
lodge. One obstacle heretofore to the
recognition of the Rathbone Sisters, she
stated, was the fact that In the east was
another woman's organization known as
the Pythian Sisterhood and the two orders
had been both knocking at the gate for ad
mission. Negotiations, however, were now
pending, she was glad to say, looking to
the consolidation of the two orders.
Mrs. Robinson ' of Oelweln, past grand
chief, spoke" In place of Mrs, Carrie J.
Hunter of Newton, the grand chief, who
"was unable to be present on account of
Illness. Mrs. Robinson told of the Insur
ance feature of the order . and of the
growth of the order which was represented
in 130 towns In Iowa. She also made a
strong plea for the recognition of the
order by the supreme lodge.
The morning session of the Pythian grand
lodge was taken up with the reading of
reports of the officers and placing In nom
ination the candidates for the several offi
ces to be voted on at the afternon session.
Bernard Murphy of Vinton etated that he
had withdrawn from the contest for state
representative against Carl F. Kuehnle of
Denlson, and his withdrawal brought to a
close one of the bitterest fights lit the his
tory of the Iowa Pythian grand lodge. Mr.
Murphy withdrew In order not to handicap
State Senator C. C. Powell's chances for
re-election. Indications were that had Mr.
Murphy remained In the field the election
would have resulted in the selection of
Kuehnle and Murphy and the defeat of
Dowell, and Mr. Murphy withdrew rather
than Impair Mr. Dowell's chances for re
election. Committees Are Named.

Grand Chancellor Gl'.lette in hla report
I am pleased to say that the reports
from subordinate lodges Indicate that the
order In this domain is having a healthy
and vigorous growth, and that we may
confidently look forward to a membership
of H'.tXv in January, laoi.
The So.uuO mark, for which we have been
so arnetly striving, was m-arly reached
In January, when the returns showed
our membership to bo is. 4 1, larking less
than l.tuo uf tho number ii'Mwrv to a-lva
US aa additional representative la the su
preme lodge. In thf coming January I am
confident there will be nothing lacking,
and that we will be safely above the mark
and secure the additional representation.
The financial condition of the order has
continued to Improve, and I am glad to
state that this grand lodge session will
clnoo with a larger balance In the hands
of the grand master of exchequer than we
have had for many years. This gratifying
reoiilt hw been reached through your wise
legislation, nnd I trust at the present ses
sion you will bo governed by the same wis
dom that has controlled your legislation
in the past. "
During the year there has been four new
lodges instituted, four consolidations and
The Rathbone Slstero, I am pleased to
state, have also had a prosperous year.
They have now 1W) temples In this domain,
and a membership of 7,500. composed of
3,oO) knltfhts and 4.500 sisters. In many lo
calities1 they have been a decidedly helpful
ally, and I hope In the near future they
will receive tho official recognition they so
This branch of the order shows a slight
decrease In number of companies, caused
by consolidations, but shows an Increase
In membership. The number of companies,
I am Informed, Is now twenty-seven, with
a membership of 9fi3.
The npws of the death of Brother Julien
C Manchester of Ottumwa, brigadier gen
eral of the Uniform Rank, came like a
shock to his rrmny friends and acquaint
ances. No knight was better known or
better loved In the order, and his familiar
face will be sadly missed at this session,
and I recommend that the gTand lodge take
such action as will best testify to our love
II. D. Walker, grand keeper of records
and seal, presented his twenty-ninth an
nual report. It showed that on January 1,

Bank Burglars Go to Soatb Dakota.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D.. Aug. 12. -(Special.)
An eastern company which makes a spe
cialty of Insuring banks against burglary
has notified the officers of a number of
South Dakota banks that three of the most
expert cracksmen in the United States are
en route for South Dakota for the pur
pose of attempting to rob some of the
financial Institutions In the southern por
tion of the state. The men are doubtless
drawn to the state at this particular time
by the fact that there are thousands of
harvest hands from various western states
now at work in South Dakota, strangers
being so numerous aa not to attract any
attention. The authorities of the various
counties have been notified of the expected
arrival ot the three professional cracksmen
and will maintain a close watch for them.
Farmer Has Fight with Bell.
SIOUX FALL8, 8. D., Aug. li (Spe

farmer, had a remarkably narrow escape
from being killed by a bull owned by him.
When he entered the pasture the animal
without delay attacked him, knocking the
surprised farmer against a barb wire
fence and making every effort to trample
him to death. The animal, . fortunately,
had no horns, or Rathburn would have
