The directors of tho Masonic Mutual Relief
Association will meet at the office, 419 Eleventh
street northwest, Wednesday evening, when it
is expected that the long-delayed action relatiTC
to the change of eligibility for membership will
be definitely settled. At" tho last meeting the
committee appointed to look into the matter
did not make any report, and consequently the
subject was not discussed. What result will be
reached next Wednesday evening cannot be
predicted, as it is not known how many of tho
board favor tho change.
At the last meeting of the Imperial Council,
Ancient Arabic Order, Nobles of the Mystic
Shrine, it was decided to hold the next session
of that body at San Francisco in August, but a
contingency has arisen which may cause a
change in this arrangement and a more central
city to be selected for tho holding of tho festi
val of tlio wearers of tho "fez." Tho proper
authorities of tho council have been as yet un
able to secure from the railroad companies any
thing like a satisfactory rate for tho trip, when
tho largo number who will make tho journey is
taken into consideration, and for this reason
they are seriously discussing the advisability of
electing another citj. Pittsburg is tho favor
ite, especially of the Southern and Eastern tem
ples, and unless satisfactory arrangements are
shortly consummated with the transcontinental
railroads tho latter city will undoubtedly secuie
the prize, in which ovont tho date will bo
changed and the session of the Imperial Coun
cil will bo held in Juno instead of August, on
account of tho weather, Tho members of Al
mas Temple, of this city, aro very enthusiastic
over tho proposed change, and aro booming the
claims of Pittsburg with true Arabic perdistency.
In case tho change is made tho caravan from
this city will be a lengthy one, and in tho reti
nuo of tho imperial officers will bo found the
most prominent members of tho order who owo

Tho report of Very Eminent Sir Myron M.
Parker, chairman of tho triennial committee,
Is now extant, and in a couciso form gives a
full and complete history of the great Templar
event. To tho f raters of tho District of Colum
bia who desire to preserve a record of the hap
penings of that eventful week, and to the
authorities who will conduct tho affairs of
future triennial conclaves, it is au invaluable
document for reference The unparalleled suc
cess of tho twenty-fourth triennial conclave
was tho deserved reward for the wisdom, hard
work, and executive ability of tho distinguished
officers and members of tho triennial committee.
Chairman Parker introduces tho report as fol
lows: "The services of tho triennial committee
were so officient and satisfactory, and of so
much importance and benefit to Templar Ma
sonry throughout tho world, that I have deemed
it proper to make a report thereon as a matter
of permanent histor)'. Had we a grand com
mandery In tho jurisdiction that duty would
havo been performed by tho Grand Commander,
and tho doings of tho committee having in
charge tho ceremonies incideut to the twenty
fourth trleunlal conclave of the grand encamp
ment would have found a placo in tho libraries
of tho various graud commanderles of the United
States. While I vory much regret that we do
not permit ourselves to enjoy the benefits of a
grand commandery, I do not regret the neces-sltj-
that calls forth this report, as It enables
me to record tho services of a committee that
wero unparalleled in tho history of our order."
Do Molay Commandery No. 4 will tiansact
routine business at tho next conclave, Tuesday
evening. At the last conclave handsomely en
grossed resolutions of thanks were presented to

courtesy extended Do Molay Commandery dur
ing tho triennial conclave held in this city last
October, wlicu California Commandery presented
them with a beautiful silk commandery banner

Between the latter commandery (Mount Calvary J

sentiments exist, umi the Washington Sir

Army and a member of Do Molay Commandery,

action with the Indians upon the fiontier.
