GRAND SESSION OF THE
U. B. F. AND S. M. T.
The Thirty-seventh Annual Session of the I'nitit! Brothers of Friendship,
Twenty-third Annual Session of the Grand Temple of the Sisters of the
Mysterious Ten, and the Second Session of the Royal House are now con
vened In our city. The sessions began last Monday. 10 a. in., at Arlington
Hall, with a full delegation, and th re are good indications that this wil, be
the best session in the history of the organization.
"This Order is one of the best Negro frati rnal organizations and is n
deserving one for all of our people. The membership has been steadily In
creasing under the administration of Mr. S. T. IVttigrew, and has reacl: .1
H.iHtO in the last year. The financial condition of the Grand Lodge is above
Titlcism. and indicates wise and businesslike manngi mint. The Lodge has
ft! present a surplus of $20.00ii, and supports an Orphans' Home, located in
Hannibal, Mo., which is free from all Incumbrance. This year has been one
tit the banner years in the history of tl". organization, and the credit Is due
the present officers. All Kansas Citynns have been and are watching the
sessions and we express public opinion whi n we congratulate the Oi'd.'r and
its oflicers, from the Grand Master to the Outside Stntinel.
At the time we go to press tin elation of officers has not been made,
but we learn that the following are the h ailing candidates:
For Grand Master: Prof. S. F. Cobs. Pr. .J. T. Cnston, William Harrison,
J. II. Williams, S. K. Howard. ( I'. Hubbard and Charles Brown; Endow
ment Secretary. S. T. Pettlgrew. C. . Hubbard. .1. It. CoKman, .1. M. .lack
son and Charles Brown; Grand Tnasiirtr. W. I'. Gordon.
This is the year, according to the Constitution, that the entire body of
officers of the Grand Lodge must be changi d. Quite a number of d. h-nali s
have expressed themselves against this proei .lure, as an entire new set of
officers may not prove the best for the Order during these fruitful years.
We fet l sure our visiting friends will look out for the best interests of the
Order along this line.
There aro several invitations for the next session, nmong which is otu
from Keokuk, Iowa, containing the nanu s of 1 .r.oo of its best citizens.
We give below the list of Grand Officers:
