they will give have attracted other thou
fandswho want to soo tho show. The
thing most discussed in the ranks of tho
knights is the annual report of the su
premo chancellor to the supreme lodge.
He says that Kid times have hit Pythian
Ism hard, yet the order has grown stoadjly
larger through tho long season of hard
t.mes. Losses hnvo been nnprecedeim-d-ly
large, lint o have gains. Supremo
Chancellor Walter H. Ritchie reports in
hi annual message that during the two
years ended In-e. 31, lsO.", tho suspensions,
practically nil being for the non payment
of dues, amounted to M2.44. "These flg
nres." he says, "are startling, nnd there
rhould come from the supreme lodge somo
rtiggestion or recommendation which
might be of benellt to the suljordinate
The Qaarrel Almnt a Langnnge.
Bi:t the portion of the n-jiort that is
most interesting to outsiders is that re
lating to the German nbjivtion to the use
of the I'nitcd States language solely in
the ritual, or this matter Ritchie says
that "most of the better class pf German
Ainerican members have remained true
to the order, i;i spite of the decision of the
supreme Imlgp that all lodge work must
1m conducted in tho F.nglish language."
Of tho-e w ho have sece led on this ground
nnd of those who. sympathizing with
them, have artacke.l the order, the chan
cellor emphatically declares: ' The state
ment was made that our order was op
posed to foreigners. This I resented with
i ll the force at iny command. Oar order
is American; it stands -for country and
for order. Imt believes in loyalty to flag
nnd tongue. Ir web nines those who come
to us from foreign shores desiring to be
Americans, knowing our language, ob
serving our laws and aiding in tho pros
lcity of our country.
The Order MatoN Tor Americanism.
"And in using the word 'country' I do
not linit it at nil to what is commonly
called the I'nifcd States. Our order stands
for Americanism. It says to those vouiing
to our country not coring to know our
1'injrnnge. not caring to observe our laws,
not caring for our diatoms, thrice wel
come will he the ship thut fludl bear yon
back to the land whence you came. This
order in this country desires no man for a
member who docs not wish to know its
tongue and does not care to familiarize
him-elf with lis laws, nnd has not a pro
per regard for its customs nnd its institu
tions. Fully id irr cent, of tho foreign
iiiemlersliii of our order prior to the
adoption of the new ritual are loyal today.
O.ir order is liettcr off, our country is liet
ler off without those who care not for its
tongue, its laws and its ciis tuns."
