Unprecedented Attendance of Knights
at the St. Louis Assembly.
St. Louis, 3Io., Sept. 20. It was after
midnight when the last special train dis
charged its load of visitors to the triennial
'conclave last night, and day had not broken
this morning when the procession of arriv
ing commanderics was renewed. At an
early hour bands were playing, command
cries marching, and the history of the fore
noon has been but a repetition of that of
last night, only on a much more extensive
At the Lnion depot the tracks are
crowded with extra trains, and no sooner is
one emptied than another take- its place.
Along the wharfs on the river side a simi
lar scene of activity is witnessed, man
commanderics from along the river having
chartered steamers which will be used as
combined hotel and headquarter during
the week. Tlic weather is especially fit
ting for-the occasion, and inconsequence
the streets are thronged with sightseers,
while everywhere may be seen marching
commanderics, making fraternal calls on
local and visiting headquarters.
The work of decorating buildings for
the occasion is only fairly begun this morn

in the last preparation for the illumination
which begins tonight are complete and the
apparatus has been tested and found in per
fect working order, assuring a display far
in advance of anything previously attempt
ed in this city. " Other arrangements for
the work of the encampment are perfected
and nothing remains but to receive Knights
aud get them established in their temporary
quarters. It is an utter impossibility at
the present time to give an accurate esti
mate of the number of Knights already on
the grounds, a individuals aud in many
instances commanderics are slow in register

while hundreds are quartered with friends

The incident of the morning, causing
amusement and sonic teinporarv annoyance,
was a strike by waiters in several hotels
and restaurants. They demanded !sj per

One of the chief subjects, if not the main
one. for discussion and determination at
the meeting of the grand encampment, is
the question of amending the organic law
of the order ith reganTto the powers and
privileges of the grand cucampment.
A meeting of members of the grand en
campment has been called for tomorrow j
attemoon at tue AeorasKa neauquancrs 10
decide whaf course the opponents of Hie
proposal change shall pursue. The call is
addressed to all memlx-rs of the grand en
campment who opiM)se its emasculation,
and the object set forth is '-devise way-
and means to give effective expression to 1
the desire for reform (if reform 1 needed) j
within our order as now constituted, and to
defeat the exi-ting effort to weaken our j
general governingl-ody, thereby destroying '
its efficiency. j
A circular letter accompany ing fhL case ;
sets forth the matter in controversy. It
quotes from the proceedings of the grand
commandary of Xcbraska, which
appointed a special detail of five
in May of this year to prepare a
report on proj-Osition-; for changes made '
by the grand conimandry of Pennsylvania. ,
and licing adopted as the views of the Iowa !
grand conimandry. -n ere formulated by the
latter body as resolutions, as follows:
Resolved, That the grand encampment, j
Knights Templar, of the United States,
abandon the system of centralized and ex
clusive power which it now maintains and
return to the general system devised by its
Resolved, That its constitution and code
be revised and so simplified as to include
general principles, only Jeaving to the
grand commandries the" power 'which of
right belong to them, to legislate unon all
matters of detail.
Resolved, That sovereign power be rec
ognized as vested in grand commandries and
such general powers only in the grand en
campment as nmv be expressly delegated
Resolved, That under the general legis
lation of the grand encampment jurisdic
tion be vested in grand commanderics over
the subjects of uniform, ritual and mem-j
Resolved, That in order that the grand
encampment may in peace and quietness
provide the legislation necessary to cam
out the foregoing changes, it is in duty
bound to positive! prohibit all parades
aud entertainments at the time and place
where its conclaves shall be held.
The question involved, it seems, is to be
as to what is known in politics as the
state's rights problem. The circular issued
by the Nebraska commandery takes very
strong ground against the proposed changes,
claiming that their adoption would ac
complish the eventual dismemberment of
the grand encampment.
The crowds on the streets at the various
headquarters and at the Union depot this
morning were but insignificant when
brought into comparison with those of the
afternoon. At the depot not a quarter of
an hour elapsed without the arrival of a
delegation and this evening the throng was
so great that movement was difficult and
marching by commanderics was next to im
possible. At tue headquarters of the triennial and
subsidiary committees all Avas a bustle and
confusion; but little effort was made to
keep a record of the arrivals of command
cries, and in fact such an effort would have
been crowned with only a small measure of
success as the registration of arrivals was
purely voluntary and but few command
cries registered, :is such guests were speedily
located hi hotel and boarding houses.
At state aud commandery" headquarter
the day wa. given up to the work of dec
oration and to friendly calls between the
various coramandarics. Bands from the
several states were engaged in serenading
visitors from other states, and the socials
were the chief feature of the day.
An incident worthy of note wa. a sere
nade by a Georgia band of the Kansas
headquarters, at which "Dixie" was ren
dered, and received loud applause, follow
ed by laughter and applause when the med
ley changed to "Marching Through Geor
gia." The hotels presented a pittur. of won
derful activity, and while all who applied
were furnished with some sort of sleeping
accommodations, the crowding was some
Tonight the streets were brilliantly
illuminated for the first time, tiie work of
preparation having been brought to practi

private buildings bla.cd forth in electric
light and gas, mnhlanee designs appropri

the following letter:
Dciimx. Sept. 9, iS?(J.
My Dear Father O'Rilev:
I beg to acknowledge vour favor of the
24th ot August enclosing a bill of exchangr
on the Alliance bank of London for the
sum of 3,000 on behalf of the Irish Na
tional league. Tins generous contribution
from our kindred and sympathizing friends
in America comes to us most opportunely
at a time when we are in the beginning of
what i likely to prove the " accursed
portion of the struggle v. ith
landlordism in this" country.
Everything promises that the coming win
ter will be the closing chapter of the strug
gle with landlordism in Ireland, at least the
beginning of the end. The temporary tri
umph which the Tory party has secured in
England and has given encouragement to
the Irish landlords to enter again vigorous
ly upon an eviction campaign. We believe
the people are fully prepared to go boldly
and determinedly" into the struggle with
them, and if we are able to give the people
financial assistance, which for our part we
arc not piepared to give, in proportion
to the determination they exhibit in the
fight, we are very hopeful. The landlords
will come out of'the fight more broken and
ruined than they have emerged in any
struggle with the Irish tenantry.
I have to beg on behalf of the executive
of the Irish National league that you will
convey to the members of vour organiza
tion the assurance of our warm thanks for
the generous aid they have given us, and
the encouragement and sympathy extended
to us bv them at even period of our "-triig-

Abilene, Kan., Sept 20. The Daily
Gazette tomorrow morning- will contain
the following opeif letter from Hon. A. S.
Wilson to Hon. J. A. Anderson.
To Hon. J. A. Aadeivou-
Sir: At the Republican congressional
convention for the Fifth Kansas district,
which convened June 29th at Concordia,
I had the houor to receive the nomination
for congress. This nomination was with
out solicitation on my part and was made j
unanimous. Yoit were a candidate before
that convention and were defeated. The
convention after my nomination had
thus made and adopted a platform
and selected a central committee consist
ing of one member from each of the ten
counties of the district. Half of the mem
bers of that committee were selected by
vour friends; all the members of that com
mittee met immediately after the conven
tion adjourned and orgauized by the selec
tion of Capt. II. D. Baker, of Salina, -is
chairman and Hon. J. W. Proctor, of
Washington, as secretary. On the 16th
of July vou addressed a letter to W. II.
Smith, J. T. Billings and W. R. Higgin
botham, in whicli you stated that you had
received a number of letters, petitions
and telegrams from different parties
urging you tojbecome the people's candidate
and others urging you to become :n inde
pendent candidate," and others that consent
be given that your name might be used,
and still others stating they would vote for
vou whether a candidate or not, and merely
desired to know whether if elected you
would serve. Xcne of the letters, petitions
or telegrams which you received, accord
ing to your statement, urged you to be
come the Republican candidate, which is
perfectly natural and reasonable, as the Re
publicans had already made their nomina
tion. Neither the writers of the letters,
the senders of the telegrams, or the signers
of the petitions asking you to be a candidate
conceived the -idea That it w:is possible
for you to be the Republican candidate,
nor according to our letter of July 1ft, did
they ask you to be such. The letters, tele
grains and petitions, admitted the Repub
Hcans liRd made their nomination. e
pressed dissatisfaction mid a-k you to run
as the people-, candidate as an independ
cut candidate that your name might be
used, or whether you will serve if elected.
The parties who thus addressed you had
not conceived the idea that there could be
two nominees at the same time, any more
than that two persons could occupy the
same space at the same time. Hence, they
did not ask you to become the Republican
nominee, evidently recognizing the fact
that the Republicans already had a noini

them, together with a "desire stronger than
mv desire for office to be able when mv
public service shall have terminated to look
back upon it a ith regret, alike render me
unwilling to become a candidate of any
other party than the one of my youth and
life, the one of my convictions "and affoc

and evinced a loyalty to that party v.hich
was commendnbl". Notwithstanding, how
ever, hen on the 28th of July a Green

endor-ed your arts or your candidacy, and
when on the in-xt day a delegate conven

tan, on the '51st of August, write another
letter, which you were pleased to address
to lion. Wirt'W. Walton, chairman of the
