Ycterday was another gala day in Wich
ita, the occasion being tho sixt3'-s9venth an
niversary of Odd Fellowship in America.
The day was bright and beautiful, with
an exhilerating brccz?. perhaps a little too
fresh, but otherwise tho day was propitious
for the grand demonstration.
The local members of the order were atir
early and donned their regalia. The several
committees wero alert, and Marshals W. A.
Itichey and Dr. Minnick, mounted on fine
steeds, were firing about everywhere,
Tho morning train from Caldwell and Ar
knnnis City brought in large delegations
from Mulvane, Belle Plaine, Wellington,
Caldwell. Winfield and Arkansas City.
Next came tho Wichita and Western
laden with tho knights of the threo link"
and the daughters of Itebekah, from God
dard, Garden Plain, Cheney, New Murdock
Then came the Frisco with its crowds
from Agusta and Bt-aumont.
The Santa Fe, from the north, brought in
alargacroud of Odd Fellows and their
families from Valley Centre, Sedgewitk and
Nowtoti, Burrton and Brainard, while the
Fort Scott was laden with large delegations
from El Dorado, Anthony, Conway Springs,
Argonia and Clearwater.
The Eaglo line brought in its quoto from
Mount Hope and other points.
Tho visiting members were met at the
several depots by committees and escorted
to Odd Fellows' hall, which had been re
painted, papered, carpentcd and profusely
and most appropriately decorated for the oc
casion. Itev. Waitc, the orator of tho day, arrived
by tho Santa Fe train and proceeded quietly
with his friend, Geo. W. Knorr, to tho Man
hattan hotel, Hanking the carriage that was
in waiting for him at tho depot. At pre
cisely 1:30 p. m. the members of tho various
lodges and encampments came pouring out
of Odd Fellows hall, going up to the county
building, where the bands di. coursed sweet
Or.DEH OF rilOCKSSIOX.
The lino of procession formed on Main
street, tho right resting in front of Odd Fel
lows hall. At precisely 2 o'clock tho pro
cession began to move down Mam street to
Douglas avenue in the following order:
Four mounted police in uniform headed tho
procession, followed by tho Knights of
Py thias band of Wichita, w hich made a
rery fine showing and acquitted themselves
nobly. Next camq the orator of tho day
accompanied by ex-Gorcrnor Glenn, presi
dent of the occasion, Wm. Mathewson, J.
T. McMillan and others in carriages, fol
lowed by tho visiting lodges in the following
order: El Dorado, Augusta, Newton, Win
field, Wellington lodgo headed by the Wel
lington cornet band, Arkansas City, Mul
vane, Sedgnick, Bello Plaine, Kingman.
Mt. Hope cornet bind followed by the fol
lowing lodges: Valley Center, Mt. Hope,
Anthony, Conway Springs, Cheney, Burton,
Clearwater, Goddard, Brainard, New Mur

Next camo tho Wichit cornet
band, followed by the following
encampments in tho order named: Augusta,
Newton, Anthony, Winfild, El Dorado,
Valley Center, Sedgwick and Wichita No.
29. Next came the Daughters of Itebekah
in carriages, led by the Wichita drum
corps, and the Patriarchs Militant, on horse
back, brought up the re-ir. The line ot
uiirch was south on Min street to Douglas
srenuc; cast on Dougl&ss to Fifth avenue;
counter march on Douglas to Emporia
avenue; north on Emporia to Second street;
west on Second to Main; south on Main to
Douglas; east on Dougla to Market; north
on Market to the opera boue, where they
all filed in, filling it to its utmost capacity.
The procpion reached from Main street
to the Santa Fe depot, and was a very
brilliant and imposing demonstration, num
bering probably five hundred.
The scene within the opera house was
very impressive. Old men and young,
mothers and daughters, mingled in ths
throng, arrayed in the flashing regalia of
the order, while beautiful banners were ar
ranged in conspicuous position! about the
There were a number of ladies and gen
tlemen present not members of the order.
On the stvge were the orator of the occa

N. E. Harmon, chaptain; Hon. John B.
Carey, J. T. McMillan, and one or two
others with some ladies the reporter did not
Judge Glenu announced the programme,
and after prayer by the cheplain, the choir
rendered the red, white and blue most beau
tifully. Next came the Wichita Lotos club,
who did up the "Yalta Gal down in Mo
bile" in their usual captivating style, and
being loudly recalled they encored with
"Gloria Hallalujah," in a style that electri
fied the house. Past Grand 1L Waite, of
McPherson, the orator ot the occasion, was
then introduced, and spoke as follows, and
wm frequently applauded doling tut speech:
MB, WAIT'S ADKBESS.
Mr. President, Ladles, Gentlemen. Brothers:
In rcsponso to your kind invitation to ad
dress you, I come before jou with mingled
feelings of gratitude, humility, and of pride.
I am proud of the order so largely re
presented and so creditably paraded.
I look upon these men so far advanced in
degree and in proficiency, compared with
which, I am a mese novice, with somewhat
of reverence and much humility, yet my
heart rejoices in the honor you confer upon
mc, entrusting me, as you do, with the re
sponsible position of speaker of the hour.
As I visit this city ot Wichita, my old
home, I am amazed at its marvelous de
velopments, its rapid and substantial growth
its evident continued .prosperity, yet this is
not so strange. It is hut the result of a
universal law to which we may have occa
sion to refer further on. It is but the pro
duct of association, association of ideas, of
means, of influence, accomplished by push
and enterprise. May you evea flourish.
And now as I look about me upon the
large numbers in procession and here as
sembled, as I sec the extecsivo preparation
to make this anniversary an event long to
bo remembered by our order in this part of
this great state. As I see these encamp
ments, these subordinate lodges, this fine
company of Patriarchs Millitant, these
cloth d with the proper regalia and insignia
of order and office, I should shrink from the
duty assigned me were it not for the happy
thought which impresses itself upon my
mind, "Wo are brothers."
I said, "the happv thought." it is more
than that, it is a most agreeable fact.
With all the proficiency of these bodies,
Doin in advancement in degrees ana in a
knowledge of the grand acd noble princi
ples and work of this great Order. We meet
to-day as brothers, bound together by ties
that cannot be severed by rank or position
by wealth or its opposite, by creed or by
party. As brother, 1 am happy to address
you on this 07th anniversary of American
The number of our anniversary clearly in
dicates the fact that Odd Fellowship in
America is of comparatively recent origin,
and, indeed, this is true of Odd Fellowship
in the world. We do not, as on order, lay
claim to great antiauity. Tho peculiar
claim which clusters about things ancient.
is not ours to enjoy. I bo strange fascina
tion which attaches to things covered by tho
dust of ages and almost obscured by the
dim distant pat belongs not to our order as
such. Had we naught to recommend us to
the world but our age, I fear our boasting
would be in vain.
Some over zealous members have en
deavored to place the date of our birth at a
much earlier period than the facts will ad
mit, doubtlisi thinking this might gire us
Different dates hare been mentioned,
founded chiefly on tradition. Some of these
have reached back to our honored Father
in tho Garden of Eden. Perhaps reverence
for the Scriptures has prevented an earlier
date being giren.
No one will presume to question the lact
that Adam wa, at one time, an Odd Fellow;
yet, as filling the highest chair in the Lodge,
we have no record of his ever meeting with
a quorum present.
Wo are, as an organization, sixty-soven
years old lo-dav; young, healthy, vigorous,
with an exceedingly unghi lulure bclore
It must be remembered, however, that
whilo we are young in years, we are organ

as th-) world it-elf. Aye, my brothers, the
principles which govern our noble order
have their origin in, and are coeval with, tho

You. fellow citizen, can teo by what has
been said, that we are, in no sense of word, a
political orgauization. In no way do we
interfere with the rights of others in this re
spect. Wokno no diflerenccs among m
on account of political adherence.
We recognize, as has been indicated, no
rank betauo of wealth, social position, or
natural or acquired ability.
Having thus briefly mentioned a few neg
atives, I am pleased now to call attention to
some of our claims to the more positivo
side. This can be largely summed up in
very simple, yet wonderfully comprehensive
words, " Wo aro brothers." Theto are, in
deed, plain words, yet they ere strangely
Minds, which havo solved many of the
great questions ot tho past and of tho pres
ent, have seemingly overlooked the sublime
height and profound depth of this trite say
ing. We feel warranted in saying that if these
words wero better understood and moro
carefully heeded, many of the evils which
now curse our fair land, would bo avoided;
harmony would reign where distention and
strife now threaten confusion and disaster.
Tho great question of capital and labor
can onlj bo properly adjusted by a due re
gard for these words so familliar to every
member of this order, "wo are brothers."
The study ot this saying leads us, very
soon, un to" tho great source of all truth.
The bible held sacred by our order, (and
without which no lodge room is completely
furnished) reveals to us the fatherhood of
God; it also clearly teaches the fact that all
men are members of a common brother
I know of nothing more fitting at this
hour, than that we emphasize one af the
recognized and cherished principals of our
order, viz: fraternity, based as it must bo on
the fundamental law of human brother
hood. This subject is coming to bo moro gener
ally understood. Mankind are making rapid
sinues in ims uirecuun, are gaining a oeucr
knowledge of each other and of tho obliga
tions placed upon us by the very laws of
our being, as well as by tho rerealed will of
the infinite Father.
As far short as wo may come of fulfilling
the law of Christ in this "matter of fraternity,
when we read the history of nations and in
dividuals for centuries prior to the advent
of the Son of God, we wisely conclude tho
golden age of fraternity is not in the dim,
With the world's Itedeemer was ushered
in tho dawn of a new era, not only in mat
ters strictly religious, but also in this most
closely allfed subject true fraternity.
It was Chri't who asumed a po-ition cal
culated te check tho pride, the arrogance
and selfishness of the human heart and to
encourago feelings of sympathy, of tender
ness and of charity toward all.
It was Christ who gave us tho parablo of
the good Samaritan, so dsarto our order and
so highly prized for it plain, practical lesson
of human brotherhood. He also said,
"Thou sbalt lor thy neighbor ai thyself."
"Do unto others as yo would that they
should do to you
Christ was no respecwr of persons. With
him there was neither Jew nor Gentile, high
nor low, rich nor poor, bond nor free-
None wero so derated as to be independent
of Him; none so lowly as to be passed by.
All were on an equality so far as human
brotherhood is concerned.
Man is by no means independent of his
fellow man Indeed, in a rery important
sense, we are all dependent upon each
other. The rich man is at times, and I may
say quite often, dependent upon the poor
man. The poor man is dependent upon
and too often at the mercy of his more for
The principles of Odd Fellowship are as
sociation and the fellowship of man. There
is association everywhere, in the heavens
and in tho rarih. We see it in the state and
ia the nation. The secret of the marvelous
development of this great city is in unity of
action on the part of her citizens. We have
in our lodges an emblem illustrative ot the
strength ot unity, nc a little bundle of
sticks. When tied together tbey form a
strong body, but when takes apart and sep
arated each piece appears weak alone. Odd
Fellows were organized for fraternity and
for mutual advantage. There are thousands
of Odd Fellows in ibis Ticisitj who could
not be here. Were it not for the grand,
noble and divine principles of this order
this nation might tremble in view of the
power of this LTeat association. Fear for
the direction that might be given to this
mighty power. He then west oa to show
that this power is directed towards U .
lifting of suffering humanity all over the
Sixty-seven years ago this order was
founded by a little band of fire men and
new its members are counted by hundreds
The founders of Odd Fellowship were
poor men men who were personally ac
quainted with the toil, the hardships and
the privations which poverty imposes. Be
ginning with an empty treasury, tho order
has, by careful management, strict integrity
and honesty, reached a position where it
counts its wealth by millions of dollars.
Thus has she enlarged ber borders; thus in
creased in numbers, influence and in power.
This marvelous growth is but the result of
these noble principles that are inscribed up
on our banners. It shows that the order
has also lived up to them in word and deed,
What has been accomplished? Forty mil
lions of dollars have been paid
out in benefits; 150,000 families have been
assisted; 100,000 brothers aided, while the
unrecorded deeds (save in the annals of eter
nity) is very great. We have but done our
duty. We might, 1 dare say have done
more, but what mistakes were made, were of
the bead aud not of the heart.
The future of our order is bright. It is
full of possibilities. We may rectify the er
rors of the past in the future. As true Odd
Fellows let us go forward in our duty. Do
all to promote the good of onr noble order.
God ble-s Odd Fellows, in this city, and
all over the world, and may the day bo hast
ened wnen maiKinu, recognizing the lather
hood of God and the universal brotherhood
of man, shall accept the obligations resting
upon us, growing out of these fraternal re
lations. To tho great father bo all the
At tho conclusion of tho conclusion of tho
oration, tho Mt. Hopo Quartette band ren
dered somo fine music, followed by a vocal
rendition by the choir. Then followed mu
sic by tho Wellington and Wichita cornet
bands, and song by the Lotus club. After
benediction by the chaplain and music by
the Wichita Drum Corps, the meeting ad
journed to re-assemble in the Garfield mem
orial hall for a grand banquet and ball, Be
ginning at 8.30 p. m.
When the grand march was called last
night at the G. A. It. hall, exactly fifty
couples took the floor. Over threo times
that number were acting in the capacity of
spectators at the timo. Both the dancers
and the spectators increased rapidly, until
by 10 o'clock the capacity of the large hall
was not sufficient to afford comfortable cir
culation. Truly, it was a joyous affair the
crowning feature of the day. The pleas

both tho youn and tho middle-aged. The

LECTURE AT THE Y M. C. A.
The oeond lecture of a series was given
at the Y. M. C A. rooms last evening by
Rev. Mr. T. S. Hodgson on the subject "Ed
ucation." Ho had no hesitation in saying
that a lazy man's, definition of a great maa
u that be was "born to." lie makes labor
indispensible to excellence. He conceded
that a man might be in some degree modi
fied by his environments, but people were
too apt to place too much stress upon the
old theory that "circacasUaccs make the
man." Hence a man should not surrender
to his surroundings, although they may not
He maintained that every mas was is
certain sense a self-educated maa. No col
lege or university course was sufSdest is
itself to make an educated mas.
His lecture was lstecd to with interest
throughout, and showed that the speaker
bad given his subject a careful study.
Owing to the strain on our space we are
unable to give Mr. Hodgson's lecture the
attention it deserves.
Hon. B. F. Hohart, bar.ier.of Springfield,

ANOTHER BIG SALE.
The sale cf 175 feet on Douglas avenue
by 131 feet on Washington a7enue, on which
the Globe Iron Works cow stands, for the
pitiful sum of $12,000, was closed yesterday
to Kentucky parties through Brown & Cole,
real estate agents in the Furley-Koth block.
This is for the bare land, Mr. Flagg retain
ing the buildings and machinery of the
Globe Iron Works, which he will move to
another part of his property.
This is another instance of big money be
ing made on Wichita real estate. Two years
ago seven acres, of which this purchase is a
part, was sold for $1,500. The buyers of
this corner propose to build a large block
there, but Mr. Flagg is not to be disturbed
for six months in order that his sammer's
work shall not be interfered. Tho reporter
has not been advised as to the purpose the
purchasers will use this corner for, but is
assured it is something of no small magni

Home Talent a: the Opera House To-NIght.
Probably few of our people really appreci
ate or understand that there is to be given,
at the opera house to-night, one of the most
taking and delightful entertainments ever
offered our people, and by home talent. A
delightful threo drama act by Miss Lillian
Brandom's elocutionary class and upon
which drill work has been done for three
months, and which is to be intersperced with
music, solos, etc., and supported by Arnold's
full orchestra. The drama of Itebeckah
will run in about two hours, but it will be
proceeded by an elocutionary concert of ten
different pieces by the following scholars1
Revs. Hodgson, Hendrix and Brown having
consented to act as judges. This feature
will be very fine and will bo participated in
by the Misses Kate English, Lotta Butler,
Maude English, Annie Boyd, Ella Bliss,
Nellie Feichheimmer, Mabel Pierce, Blanch
Feichhcimmer, Fredonia Clifford, Jennie
Hays, Tickets and reserved scats can be

"Will be at the Presbyterian church to
night. Blind Boone is a musical prodigy
in whom music is a sense which absorbes
all other senses. He reproduces on tho
piano any and all sounds and combinations
of sounds that he ever heard. He inter
sperses a number of imitations, some clever,
some grand, by way of variety. The imita
tion of a railroad train is very striking, and
tho imitation of a cyclono is grand and im
pressire. But it is tho rendering of such music as
the grand compositions of Liszt and Bee
thoven that shows Boone's real power and
calls out the cultured audiences which ncrer
fail to greet him. Tho most remarkable
thing about his playing, perhaps, jj that his
marvelous, accurate and delicite touch
which gives his runs and rapidly executed
passages a smoothness and distinctness that
are little less than wonderfal.
About 3 p. in. ye-terday a boy named
McMillan, about 10 years old, deliberately
shot another boy, named Charley Brown, a
boy of S, noar the Ft. Scott railroad bridge,

near the temple, lodging about three inches
from where it struck, inflicting a painful but
not dangerous wound. Dr. B. A. Guy ton

Tho boy who did thy shooting ran when
he found w hat ho had done, and as far as
heard from, ho ha, not been captured. The
wounded boy was taken to his home by M.G.

saying only that his assailant told him not
to go across the bridgo and not heeding the
warning he was shot.
W C. T U.
Tho literary and musical entertainment at
tho AV. C T. U., rooms last night was a de
cided success. Tho entire programme was
rendered with excellent effect and the whole
entertainment was highly appreciated by all
present. The excellence of tho rendition
bespoke considerable training, and care, in
preparation. AVcre it not for the tax on our

WHITE HOUSE FASHIONS
For May, 1886.
It is said that black will be
worn and more
fashionable during the
and the coming seasons than
for several years, Its possi
bilities of various arrange
ment seems to have been dis
covered anew by those who
have discarded it for colors
some time since, and there are
some authorities who even go
so far as to say that the fash
ionable world will soon be
plunged into a season of unre
lieved sombreness. This seems
hardly possible, glancing now
at the niagnihcent displav of
brilliant colors that greet the
ej-e in the windows and on the
shelves of the fashionable dry
goods house of Innes fc lloss.
They are also prepared to -suit
the taste of those who prefer to
wear the dark colors. They are
showing some beautiful black
silks in gros grain, armure,
faille, Francaise, etc. There are
a large number of ladies who
wear black silk from choice
considering it at once more
quiet and elegant, and possess

claim, especially when trimmed
with those rich garnitures of
jetted bands, steel and dull
leaden beads, front panels and
