News and Courier, 27th.
After two days of business and
pleasure happily combined, the an
nual conv-ention of the Southl. Caro
lina Grand Lodge of tihe Knights of
Pvthias came to an end last night.
-Various matters of importance were
disposed of in Vhe business session
yesterday morning. In the afternoon
a most agreeable excursion to Fort
Sumter and up the harbor to the
navy yard was tendered the visitors,
and in the evening they were enter
tained very pleasantly indeed at the
Sehuetzenplatz. The present conven
tion was generally pronounced to be
one of the very best that has ever
been held in South Carolina, and the
delegates and visitors seemed one and
all to enjoy its various features. The
grand lodge will meet next year in
Matters of -importance and of gen
eral interest to 'he Grand Pythian

upon at the session of the grand lodge

As to Use of Name.
The pommittee appointed at the
meeting of the grand .lodge in Aiken
last year "to. ascertain if there is a
legal remedy t.o prevent the use of tihe
name of Knights of Pythbias, badge,
ritual, etc., by those not entitled
thereto"'-the real purpose in the ap
pointemnt of the committee being to
seek a legal remedy to prevent the
use of the name of the order and the
ritual by negro lodges-reported that
the committee had held two sessions
in Columbia, at both of whicih the
grand chancellor had been present,
-and that after thoroughly going over
the situation it had been decided that
it would be advisable to await the
final termination of a case now pend
ing in Georgia. It was stated in the
<report of the committee that the
grand lodge of Georgia had been suc
-eessful in its conten'tion so far, but
tihat the case was now on appeal, and
it was thought that its final adjudica
:.ion woud settle the whole matter
from a legal standpoint. The report
was received as information, and the
committee was continued until the
next session of the grand lodge.
M. D. Kirk, of Columbi.a. presented
a proposition to repeal the sections of
the grand statutes providing for the
publrication of the South Carolina
Pythian. He stated that this propo
sition was presented in order to bring
the paper before the grand lodge fair
ly and squarely on its merits. Mr.
Kirk 's resolution was tabled without
The judiciary committee submitted
an unfavorab~le report on the proposi
tion of Gamocock Lodge, No. 17. of
Sumter. to limit representation in the
grand losig t one delegate at large
and one additional delegate for every
one hundred members or frsction
thereof. The unfavorable report of
the judiciary committee was adopted,
killing the proposition.
The juiiary committee recoin
mended that the proposition~ of Mr.
Hartwell M. Ayer to repeal the provi
ions f the grand statutes providing
for -the payment of per diem ani mi
eage of delegates to the grand lodge, i
be printed in the minutes and lie over (
for consi,deration until next year. The
report of th;e committee was adopted
and the proposition will come up for c
discussion at the next convention of I
the grand lodge. E
The report of the board of publica
tion of the grand lodge. having in
e.harge the South Carolina Pythian.
was s.ubmitted by Mr. M. Rutledge
Rivers, seeretary of the board. Ac
companying the report was an itemiz
ed statement of the receipts and dis
bursements of the board, together
witch a full and detailed report of the e
transactions of the board in tha man
agement of the paper during the past
year. The report showed that, not
withstanding considerable items of t
expense. which it ihad been necessary E
to incur, but which would not have
to be incurred hereafter, the cost of
the paper had been kept within the 1
appropriation maae by the grand
lodge. The grand lodge adopted and
approved the report of the board of
puiblication. and was practically un- <
animous in its -decision to continue I
In connection with the report of
the board of publication Mr. E. H. I
Aull. chairman of the board of pub
lication and editor, and manager of
the South Carolina Pythian, submit- '
ted his resignation as chairman and
n1ember of the board, for the reasons
which appear in his letter of resigna- -
,tion. The grand lodge refused to ac- f
cept Mr. Aull's resignation. and con- I
tinued him as cbairman of the board. t
His letter of resignation to the grand c
lodge was as follows: C
"To the Grand Chancellor and E
Members of the Grand Lodge, t
Knights of Pythias. of South Caro
lina: I herewith hand you my resigna
tion as member and chairman of the c
board of publication of .the grand
lodge. I take this action for the rea- 1
son that I understand it is desired by t
some of the Pythians of this Domair,
to submit propositons for the editor- t
ship and management of the Sout!1
Carolina Pythian, and, inasmuch as I E
am editor and manager of the paper, t
it may be that I should no, rema'n a t
member of the board, which most I
pass upon these propositionz. Fra- t
ternally yours, E. H. A tll. I
The sentimen,t of the, grand lodge t
was that the interests of the paper
could best be promoted by continuing
Mr. Aull on the board, general satis- x
faction being expressed in the paper
as now issued. r
The -report of the committee on
state of the order, submitted by Mr.
Hartwell M. Ayer. showed a steadye
and healthy growth of the grand (
lodge along all lines. It
Mr. Mendel L. Smith offered a res-''
olution to the effect that the supreme
representatives of the grand lodge be
instructed to advocate in the supreme
lodge an amendment to the supreme ~
statutes, under which the grand lodge
could create grand masters of exe
chequer and grand keepers of records 1
and seal, who have served for ten
years continuously, past grand chan-e
cellors. The resolution was adopted. Ic
The object of the resolu:tion is tshe i
manifest desire on the part of tihe c
grand lodg~ to make Grand Master of
Exhequer -ilson G. Harvey a pasti

re presence of lions roaming at night on

the tive nor to whites who have come -to
reunderstand the beast. Persons re
ltturning to their camps after nightfall
do not notice the roaring of .lions or
the cries of leopards or hyenas.
