ceived satisfactory reports concerning
trio progress1 that Is being made with
plans for tha colcbratloli of tho nlnoty
tnlrd anniversary of the establishment
of tho order ono week from tonight by
all tho District lodges. John Payne, tho
representative of Salem Lodgo on tho
Central committee of arrangements',
submitted a detailed report.
The seventeen subordinate lodgcB of
tho order In tho DlBtrlct, tho four cn
campmonts, and the live Rcbckah
lodges, will assemble In Odd Fellows
'Hall, In Seventh street northwest,' at
8 o'clock next Friday night to observe

Canton "Washington, No. 1, tho uni
formed branch of the order.
The independent Order of Odd Fel
V lows was organized llrst In the United
States In 1S19 at Baltimore, -mu.. anu it
was the offshoot of the order then long
existing in, England, known as the
Manchester Unity of tho Order of Odd
Fellows. The order was established In
the District of Columbia in 1827. The
celebration Is not conllned to tho Dis
trict, but will bo universal In tho world,
according to mo manuaie or me sover
eign Grand Lodge. In Washington
alone 2,900 people are affiliated with the
different lodges. Statistics of the order
show that It has about 1,900,000 members
A miniature cloudburst In the Ana-
costla section of the District yesterday
afternoon was accompanied by an elec
trical disturbance and a hailstorm. The
hall fell for half an hour, and tho
stones were likened in size to marbles.
Lightning Hashed vividly, and a large
silver poplar tree on the Frederick
Douglass estate, at "W and Thirteenth
streets, was struck and was splintered
from top to bottom. Tho bolt aroused
the people in that neighborhood. Some
telegraph wires on tho street were
struck and hurled about. At the same
time there was a terrific downpour.
It was feared that tho hailstorm
would cause injury to growing crops in
tho gardens hereabouts, but reports this
morning Indicated that in the opinion
of tho truck gardeners they had suf
fered no damage. It is believed tho fall
of hall and the storm in general was
much severer in the adjucent portions
of Prince George county, Md.

mllltarv aide. Senator Augustus O.
Bacon of Georgia said:
"I've known Major Archibald Butt
from his very early manhood, and ho
was one of the best of characters and
the most loyal of friends. I doubt If
thorn tn n mnn In the United States
who had more friends than he, friends
who will most sincerely mourn his loss.
To mo personally, he was one of the
best friends I had and his losa to me
Is almost like that of a brother. He
was a very rare character and we shall
not see his like again."
Senator Tillman of South Carolina
also called on the President,: "Just to
say a good word for poor Archie Butt,"
as he expressed It.
"Major But was one of God's gentle
men," said Senator Tillman. "1 knew
him for some years and he was a splen

"No man grieves more for Major
Butt than I do." said Senator aUlloy
of Texas. "I became acquainted with
him twentv years ago and I always
knew him for a fine type of gentlemun.
His death Is a great loss to the coun
