A GALA DAY IN WICHITA.
The Knights of Pythias Parade,
and Prize Drill Yesterday a
THE GOLDEN CROSS DIVISION OF
ATCHISON WIN FIRST PRIZE.
The X.T. Band of Emporia Score Anoth
For goiuetirac past the people of this city
have looked forward with more than usual
interest to the convening of the Grand
Lodge of Knights of Pythias in this city,
and the exercises incident to the occasion
hae been lully canvassed, as the merits of
the various divisions of the order and the
various bands of the State have been freely
discussed. The very unpleasant state of
the weather Tuesday, making any public
exercises impracticable i( not impossible,
cast a shadow over all who had so expect
antly awaited the time of the annual meet
iug. Not wishing to disappoint the hun
dreds of people anxious to see their parade
and drill, the Knights kindly postponed all
excicii.es of a public nature until yester
day, but the coming of another Xlay tended
not to raise their spirits as the morning
dawned dark and loweiing, and with every
prospect ' of a rainy day. Fortunately,
however, by 11 o'clock the clouds had dis
persed and the sun came out smiling its
warmth upon the earth, rapidly drying the
mud, and by 1 o'clock p. in., one could not
have asked for a more beautiful day for the
carrying out of the proposed programme,
but owing to the muddy condition of some
of the streets, the proposed line of march,
as mapped out Tuesday, was laid
aiilu, and the procession formed
in Iront or the Trcmont hotel promptly at
one o'clock and took up its line of march
west on Douglas avenue to Main street,
north on Main street to Second street,
thence et on Second to Riverside Park,
where the competithc drill and band con
test wcjc had.
As the grand and inspiring pageant
moved up the street, led by the Knights
Templar band of Emporia, the streets,
houi-etups and awnings were thronged with
people, and many were the complimentary
remarks nude as the lincly uniformed and
better appearing divisions of Sir Knights
passed, their Uty uniforms, bright hel
mets and gorgeous plumes showed off to
fine advautage. First in line were tho
ollieer in command, closely followed by
the lainous K. T. baud of Emporia, which
discounted social popular airs in excellent
stjie as nicy passed up street. Acxt came J
Golden Cross division of Atchison, Tju
cred division of Columbus, Mystic division
ofGirard, Waiidotte division, or Wyan
dotte, Warwick division of Wichita, then
came Concordia lodge, Newton cornet bauil,
members ol Leavenworth lodge officers of
the grand lodge, followed by citizens in
carriages, horseback and afoot.
Arriving at the Park it was found that
Mr. Gay, the gentlemanly proprietor, hud
put cvciythlng in oxoollont ehttpo for tho
occasion. A large number of comfortable
seals had been arranged, at the west end of
which was reserved ample room for press
rcpicculutivcs. The ground in front of
the heals had been put in excellent condi
tion for the drill, which immediately fol
lowed the choosing of the following judges :
Capt. II. II. Matthews, of Leavenworth,
Lieutenant Ji. W. Ong, ol "Wichita, and J.
A. Ask, Adjutant Second Itegimcnt Kansas
There, were three divisions that took part
in the competitive drill, though there weic
one or two others present which gave an
exhibition drill, notably the Tancrcd di
vision of (. oliiinluis, which carried off first
pi ie at Louisville in the national contest.
The divisions to enter were Golden Cross,
Mystic and Wyandotte comprising the
following olllccrs and men, the latter given

Each division was allowed to adopt their
own method of drill, ami given thirty rain
utestiine. The division of the Judges
was based on a general average, and was
as follow :
Atchison, S First prize.
(iirani .2d i
Wyandotte. C 2d I
On the decision of the Judges being an- j
nouiiced, three rousing cheers were given I
the Golden Cross division, and the same
compliment was extended to the other two
divisions. The drill was probably the fi
nest ever had in this section of the state,
and it was ilillicult to any but a practiced
) eve to find a Haw in the well executed
movements ol .v v one of the three divis
ions. Tho decision of the judges gave en
lire satisfaction, and i:i fact seemed to have
been anticipated by all the Knight.
The baud contest which took place at the
same time the drill a going on, was had
on the south side of the nark, and about
evenly shared publlcuttentlon. Therewere
but two bands present lo compete the K.
T. band of Emporia and the cornet band of
Newton. Uy some misunderstanding i to
dates, the Silver cornet band of Kingman
which expected to contest for the prize,
failed to reach here until nearly dark last
evening. After the following gentlemen

The judges' decision was then announced
from the stand and elicited three rousing
cheers for the K. T. band. This closed the
exercises of the alternoon, and the large
crowd, estimated all tlic way from !!,t0) to
4,000 people, slowly dispersed to their homes
and places of business. Tho Knights of
Pjthias ought to feel proud of theliual out
come of their public exercises, as they all
passed off most satisfactorally, and vv ere
greatly enjoyed by the hundreds who were
fortunate enough to be present.

A CALL TO PRAYER.
Issued by te National Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union in View of
the Pending Presidential Convert..
ons and Campaign.
Headquarters, N. W. C. T. IX,
16 East 14th St., N. Y.
To All C-Rutiax People. "Bight
cousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a re
proach to any people." Our nation is to
day a legal partner in the business of sell
ing intoxicating liquors as a drink. This
fact defines the greatest, most immediate,
most vital issue in National polities. Gov
ernment of the people cannot successfully
co-exist side by side with a traffic protected
by law, whose result is to render
the Individual incapable of self-government.
The homes of America are im
perilled by the saloons, whose patronage is
constantly recruited from the fireside and
the cradle. We therefore, mothers and sis
ters, wives and daughters, beseech all who
believe in God to join with us in solemn,
earnest and importunate prayer that the
hearts of the people may be so turned unto
Him upon whose shoulders the government
shall be, that by some party such princi
ples may be declared and such candidates
chosen that Christian men can conscien
tiously cast their ballots for the same, be
ing assured that they have thus struck a
blow for the national prohibition of the
traffic iu strong drink.
Wc name Tuesday, May 27, as this day of
prayer, and urge all our local unions to ob
serv e this date, enlisting all pastors and
churches to co-operate, so far as possible
with us, and respectfully requesting pas
tors to preach on the subject of God in gov
ernment on the Sunday preceding or fol
lowing this day of prayer;
We suggest the following programme:
Tuesday. May 27th, 10 to 11 a. m. Subject:
"For the Leaders of tho AV C. T. U.:'
That they may be wise as serpents and
harmless as doves in this great controversy;
that they may have the courage of their
convictions and be true to the National
motto, "For God and borne and native
laud;' that a divine charity may pervade
alt their utterances, that they may meet ar
gument with argument, misjudgment with
patience, and all their difficulties and dan
gers with prayer.
11 to 12 m. "For Christian pastors aud
editors;" That their trumpet may give no
uncertain sound; that they may demand the
outlawing of the liquor traffic.
1 to 2 p. m. "For the platforms of par
ties;" That they may not seek to revive
sectional issues, or glitter with old-time
generalities, or conceal thought under
subtleties of expression, but that they may
pointedly declare that the saloon must go.
2 to 3 p.m. "For the presidential candi
dates:" That tbey may be men of such
personal habits as the mothers of this na
tion might safely hold up as models for
theirson; men committed by characterand
public pledge to national prohibition; men
who fear God and work righteousness.
3. to 4. p. m. "For Christian Voters of
the Republic, with whom rests the balance
of power;" That their spiritual Insight
may be greatly quickened ; that their con
sciences may be alarmed ; that the cry from
broken hearts, defenceless homes and ruin
ed souls may stir their whole being to its
noblest possibilities ; that tbey may see that
there is no postponement of duty which
docs not involve irremediable loss;
that they may bo convinced that the
right is always expedient, and resolve to
walk worthy of their high calling, and to
make no compromise with wrong; that
they may be inspired to see their duty to
their home constituency, and to represent
the women whom they love and honor by
outlawing the saloon and protecting the
Let tho leaders be one for each hour
duly chosen and announced. Bible texts,
illustrating aud enforcing tho five general
topics here given, may be readily collated.
Yours for a Republic whose rulers shall
be men of God.

A HINT TO CITY SUBSCRIBERS.
Three of the live routes of The Eagle
are delivered by boys on horseback. We
would hint that few boys can mount and
dismount from one to two hundred times
every morning, and papers left in the yards
are so liable to blow away or be stolen. We
would accompany the hint with the respect
ful request that our subscribers throughout
the resident portion ol the city nail up a
little box on a post or tree at the outride of
the sidewalk where neither wind, rain nor
thieves will disturb your 'paper. There is
li irdly a residence In the city before which
does not grow a row of shade trees. A
nail or two driven in a tree docs not harm
it in the least. Please put up these boxes,
friends, and not only preserve your paper
bright and clean, but help the faithful little
Albany Evening Journal, (Rep;): It will
not do to underrate the strength of the in
dependent voters of New York. They were
strong in 1SS2, they were strong iu 1SS3, and
they arc strong in 1881- Nor do wc mean
by "independents' the self-important,
egotistical, denunciatory, and proclama
tory few, who arc Independents only so
long as they arc not flittered and purchased
with sm'ies and favors. These are not the
independents of to-day. If they were, no
words would be wasted on them. The in
dependents of to-day arc strong because
they are in earnest, because they arc sin
cere, and better yet,bccausc they arc right.
The party that refuses to believe this will
make a costly mistake.

Whtrtas, Wc recognize the fact that the
growth of our nation to a deserved
position of permanent prosperity
and sunremacv in thu art of good govern
ment depends largely upou the virtues and
intelligence of those vvuo control its des
tiues at the ballot box, and the deport
ment by labor of those great resources of
wealth which nature hath so bountifully
bestowed upon the laud of our inheritance
aud adoption, and, ahertai in regulation
of the truths good citizenship requires us
tovield our allegancc to these particular
organizations which affords the most
promise of multiplying these facilities for
education, which lead up to the
broad highway of intelligent citizenship
and of dignifying and protecting labor as
the sure foundation of national content
ment, peace and prosperity; therefore,
Resolved, By the Republicans of the
Fifth congressional district or Kansas In
convention assembled :
First, Thatwc do hereby declare our
selves to bo iu full accord with the princi
ples and policy or the Republican party,
and the principles as enunciated by the
platforms of 1872, 1876 and 1880, and the
policy as declared by the present efforts of
its representative In congress to devise
liberal means of education as the bulwark
ol safety to our institutions, and to main
tain the protc.lion of home industry upon
which American labor depends for its re
ward. Second, That the proposition of the
Democratic party to force the great indus
tries of the country and to Increase the
disturbances Incident to free trade experi
ments, Is In violation to commercial inter
ests and disastrous, and a consequent Im
poverishment or labor which should be and
will be promptly rejected by the country.
Third, That we unhesitatingly affirm that
the disposition or the Republican party to
adopt as the guiding principles orits states
manship a thorough diffusion of knowledgo
among the masses, and such a reward for

ple or Kansas and the Nation. The success
lul conclusion of his efforts to compel the
taxation of railroad lauds, all of said land

tax roll bearing their share of the public
burdeni, and for his labors for the adjudi
cation of land titles, the conflict between
corpniations and settlers in several parts of

the precnt opportunity to express our un
qualified and emphatic approval or his
course upon the tariff question, believing
as wc do that the views of our representa

ble ; and his action on the floor of the
House, especially 011 the Morrison bill, has
been that ol a wine and far seeing states
man. Sixth, That while wc are in favor or a
protective tariff, wc do, nevertheless, be
lieve th?t it is our agriculturalists first, and
not our lumbermen that need protection;
however, we arc In favor or placing lumber
upon the free likt We also believe that
teas, coffees, spices, mahogauy, logwood
and all other articles which constitute the
basis of coloring matters io not come in
competition cither with American indus
tries in agriculture or manufacturing, and,
therefore, ought to be al-o relegated to the
list of free goods, to the nd that the reve
nues of the government may be reduced
and all of our national industrial interests
be at the same time duty protected.
Seventh, That our representative in con
gress and the delegation from Kansas gen

enal profits, many persons have come for
ward with their money, and some of them
say to-nlgb that tbey think .tho Invest
ment is permanent.
