morning the fifteenth biennial session
of the supreme lodge of the Colored
Knights of Pythias, the largest and
strongest organization In the world,
came to order when Supreme Chancel
lor Starke for the fifth time struck his
gabel. There sat before him repre
sentatives from not only 27 grand
lodges of the jurisdiction, but those
colored men who in their several com
munities have stood the test, and
come to be leaders of their people and
examples of business integrity. Un
like most colored institutions, the
Knights of Pythias is a business insti
tution. The Supreme Prelate, C. D.
White, invoked the divine blessings,
and the real machinery of the organl
bation which directs the uniform
ranks, which has attracted much fa
vorable attention since beginning its
sessions .ast Sunday, had begun to

a few minutes. Supreile Chancellor
Starks announced his committee on

of Arkansas, chairman; H. C. Wallace
of Mississippi, Dr. E. E. Underwood
of Kentucky, J. J. Woodson of Ohio
and Dr. George N. Stoney of Georgia.

The Supreme Chancellor, amid tre
mendous applause of the members,
announced that a faction of the Col
ored PythlanB, known as the Eastern
and Western Hemisphere, had with
drawn from that organization to re
turn to the mother lodge, and that the
representatives of the only grand
lodge in that particular jurisdiction
had come to Louisville to be re-obligated
and to their places In the orig

A JOKE ON THE EDITOR.
The other evening the editor of The
Son appeared at McCampbell's drug
titore, and Just as he entered the door
he was kidnaped or taken charge of
by a number of ladles whose names
must have been entered In the beauty
contest. He was court-martialed and
brought before the judg and Jurors,
consisting of women. Ms. Frankle
(livens was the Judge, and the follow
ing ladles were the Jurors: Misses
Bessie Patterson, Lottie Whlttlngton.
Sadie McWaters, Nellie Snod. and
Mesdames Nellie Davis and Myrtle
Willoughby. The Jury found him
gulltv, and a fine of Ice cream Sun
daes was the penalty for insurbordl-
tl e union of all colored Pytlilans
throughout the world, and no part of
Supreme Chanceller Starks' report
will call more for the gratitude of his
hundred thousand fellows than that
dealing with the dissolution of that
wing of the union which seceded 20
years ago. The uniting of all colored
Pythlans is due wholly to Supreme
Chancellor Starks, who said when he
took hold of the reins of government
ten years ago that he dedicated him
self to this end.
One of the pleasant hours of the
encampment at Camp Corbin, 28th
street and Broadway, was that spent
yesterday when the Major General of
the Uniform Ranks of the now dead
Eastern and Western Hemisphere was
received with honors into the head
quarters of Maj. Gen. Jackson, in
command of the encampment.
The afternoon session of the su
preme lodge was tsken up with the
report of the committee on credentials
and the conferring of the rank of

committee reported no contest and
also that the grand lodge of each state
presented the full quota of represent
atives. .This morning will come the reading
of the Supreme Chancellor's report,
which Is always the big feature of the
several sessions. Then begins the
routine work of the lodge, and this
will go on until Friday afternoon.
At S o'clock this afternoon, at Camp
Corbin, the "Escort to the Flag" will
occupy the attention of the uniformed
rank. Henry Watterson and Col. W.

made the burden bearer, paying the
entire cost and fines.
