Band of Emporia Score Anoth er Walkaway. For goiuetirac past the people of this city have looked forward with more than usual interest to the convening of the Grand Lodge of Knights of Pythias in this city, and the exercises incident to the occasion hae been lully canvassed, as the merits of the various divisions of the order and the various bands of the State have been freely discussed. The very unpleasant state of the weather Tuesday, making any public exercises impracticable i( not impossible, cast a shadow over all who had so expect antly awaited the time of the annual meet iug. Not wishing to disappoint the hun dreds of people anxious to see their parade and drill, the Knights kindly postponed all excicii.es of a public nature until yester day, but the coming of another Xlay tended not to raise their spirits as the morning dawned dark and loweiing, and with every prospect ' of a rainy day. Fortunately, however, by 11 o'clock the clouds had dis persed and the sun came out smiling its warmth upon the earth, rapidly drying the mud, and by 1 o'clock p. in., one could not have asked for a more beautiful day for the carrying out of the proposed programme, but owing to the muddy condition of some of the streets, the proposed line of march, as mapped out Tuesday, was laid aiilu, and the procession formed in Iront or the Trcmont hotel promptly at one o'clock and took up its line of march west on Douglas avenue to Main street, north on Main street to Second street, thence et on Second to Riverside Park, where the competithc drill and band con test wcjc had. As the grand and inspiring pageant moved up the street, led by the Knights Templar band of Emporia, the streets, houi-etups and awnings were thronged with people, and many were the complimentary remarks nude as the lincly uniformed and better appearing divisions of Sir Knights passed, their Uty uniforms, bright hel mets and gorgeous plumes showed off to fine advautage. First in line were tho ollieer in command, closely followed by the lainous K. T. baud of Emporia, which discounted social popular airs in excellent stjie as nicy passed up street. Acxt came J Golden Cross division of Atchison, Tju cred division of Columbus, Mystic division ofGirard, Waiidotte division, or Wyan dotte, Warwick division of Wichita, then came Concordia lodge, Newton cornet bauil, members ol Leavenworth lodge officers of the grand lodge, followed by citizens in carriages, horseback and afoot. Arriving at the Park it was found that Mr. Gay, the gentlemanly proprietor, hud put cvciythlng in oxoollont ehttpo for tho occasion. A large number of comfortable seals had been arranged, at the west end of which was reserved ample room for press rcpicculutivcs. The ground in front of the heals had been put in excellent condi tion for the drill, which immediately fol lowed the choosing of the following judges : Capt. II. II. Matthews, of Leavenworth, Lieutenant Ji. W. Ong, ol "Wichita, and J. A. Ask, Adjutant Second Itegimcnt Kansas State militia. There, were three divisions that took part in the competitive drill, though there weic one or two others present which gave an exhibition drill, notably the Tancrcd di vision of (. oliiinluis, which carried off first pi ie at Louisville in the national contest. The divisions to enter were Golden Cross, Mystic and Wyandotte comprising the following olllccrs and men, the latter given in fouis: (tOI.DEX CUOSS, So. 420 3IEX. Of Atchison; E. J.

The division of the Judges was based on a general average, and was as follow : Atchison, S First prize. (iirani .2d i Wyandotte. C 2d I On the decision of the Judges being an- j nouiiced, three rousing cheers were given I the Golden Cross division, and the same compliment was extended to the other two divisions. The drill was probably the fi nest ever had in this section of the state, and it was ilillicult to any but a practiced ) eve to find a Haw in the well executed movements ol .v v one of the three divis ions. Tho decision of the judges gave en lire satisfaction, and i:i fact seemed to have been anticipated by all the Knight. The baud contest which took place at the same time the drill a going on, was had on the south side of the nark, and about evenly shared publlcuttentlon. Therewere but two bands present lo compete the K. T. band of Emporia and the cornet band of Newton. Uy some misunderstanding i to dates, the Silver cornet band of Kingman which expected to contest for the prize, failed to reach here until nearly dark last evening. After the following gentlemen had becuf elected as judges, toe K. T. band To. each band playing alternately three had been elected as judges, the K.

This closed the exercises of the alternoon, and the large crowd, estimated all tlic way from !!,t0) to 4,000 people, slowly dispersed to their homes and places of business. Tho Knights of Pjthias ought to feel proud of theliual out come of their public exercises, as they all passed off most satisfactorally, and vv ere greatly enjoyed by the hundreds who were fortunate enough to be present.

A CALL TO PRAYER. Issued by te National Woman's Chris tian Temperance Union in View of the Pending Presidential Convert.. ons and Campaign. Headquarters, N. W. C. T. IX, 16 East 14th St., N. Y. To All C-Rutiax People. "Bight cousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a re proach to any people." Our nation is to day a legal partner in the business of sell ing intoxicating liquors as a drink. This fact defines the greatest, most immediate, most vital issue in National polities. Gov ernment of the people cannot successfully co-exist side by side with a traffic protected by law, whose result is to render the Individual incapable of self-government. The homes of America are im perilled by the saloons, whose patronage is constantly recruited from the fireside and the cradle. We therefore, mothers and sis ters, wives and daughters, beseech all who believe in God to join with us in solemn, earnest and importunate prayer that the hearts of the people may be so turned unto Him upon whose shoulders the government shall be, that by some party such princi ples may be declared and such candidates chosen that Christian men can conscien tiously cast their ballots for the same, be ing assured that they have thus struck a blow for the national prohibition of the traffic iu strong drink. Wc name Tuesday, May 27, as this day of prayer, and urge all our local unions to ob serv e this date, enlisting all pastors and churches to co-operate, so far as possible with us, and respectfully requesting pas tors to preach on the subject of God in gov ernment on the Sunday preceding or fol lowing this day of prayer; We suggest the following programme: Tuesday. May 27th, 10 to 11 a. m. Subject: "For the Leaders of tho AV C. T. U.:' That they may be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in this great controversy; that they may have the courage of their convictions and be true to the National motto, "For God and borne and native laud;' that a divine charity may pervade alt their utterances, that they may meet ar gument with argument, misjudgment with patience, and all their difficulties and dan gers with prayer. 11 to 12 m. "For Christian pastors aud editors;" That their trumpet may give no uncertain sound; that they may demand the outlawing of the liquor traffic. 1 to 2 p. m. "For the platforms of par ties;" That they may not seek to revive sectional issues, or glitter with old-time generalities, or conceal thought under subtleties of expression, but that they may pointedly declare that the saloon must go. 2 to 3 p.m. "For the presidential candi dates:" That tbey may be men of such personal habits as the mothers of this na tion might safely hold up as models for theirson; men committed by characterand public pledge to national prohibition; men who fear God and work righteousness. 3. to 4. p. m. "For Christian Voters of the Republic, with whom rests the balance of power;" That their spiritual Insight may be greatly quickened ; that their con sciences may be alarmed ; that the cry from broken hearts, defenceless homes and ruin ed souls may stir their whole being to its noblest possibilities ; that tbey may see that there is no postponement of duty which docs not involve irremediable loss; that they may bo convinced that the right is always expedient, and resolve to walk worthy of their high calling, and to make no compromise with wrong; that they may be inspired to see their duty to their home constituency, and to represent the women whom they love and honor by outlawing the saloon and protecting the home. Let tho leaders be one for each hour duly chosen and announced. Bible texts, illustrating aud enforcing tho five general topics here given, may be readily collated. Yours for a Republic whose rulers shall be men of God. Frances E. Willard, Illinois, Caroline B. Buell, Connecticut, JIary A. Wooddridge, Ohio. L. 31. N. Stevens, 3Iainc, Esther Pugii. Ohio.

We would hint that few boys can mount and dismount from one to two hundred times every morning, and papers left in the yards are so liable to blow away or be stolen. We would accompany the hint with the respect ful request that our subscribers throughout the resident portion ol the city nail up a little box on a post or tree at the outride of the sidewalk where neither wind, rain nor thieves will disturb your 'paper. There is li irdly a residence In the city before which does not grow a row of shade trees. A nail or two driven in a tree docs not harm it in the least. Please put up these boxes, friends, and not only preserve your paper bright and clean, but help the faithful little carrier bovs. Albany Evening Journal, (Rep;): It will not do to underrate the strength of the in dependent voters of New York. They were strong in 1SS2, they were strong iu 1SS3, and they arc strong in 1881- Nor do wc mean by "independents' the self-important, egotistical, denunciatory, and proclama tory few, who arc Independents only so long as they arc not flittered and purchased with sm'ies and favors. These are not the independents of to-day. If they were, no words would be wasted on them. The in dependents of to-day arc strong because they are in earnest, because they arc sin cere, and better yet,bccausc they arc right. The party that refuses to believe this will make a costly mistake. 31ilwaukec Sentinel (Kep.): The nomin ation of 31r. Uiainc will certainly asure a very lively campaign, full of "noise and hoarse disputes," replete with charges concerning extremely complicated sub jects not adapted for every exposition, aud It l w ell for Republicans to consider, calm ly whether they hanker after that kind of canvas.. New York i'un (Dem.) : 31eanwhiieGen. Benjamin Franklin Butler rises upon the view as another Democratic aspirant for presidential honors. He too is a protec tionist; and a great deal might be said in his favor that can't be said of either Flow er or Cleveland. But if he should be nom inated, would Flower and Cleveland sup port him? A lot of interesting questions arc just now going about and waiting for answer". DONNELL' LAWSON 4 SIMPSON. New York, May 21.

The republican nominating convention ol the fifth congres sional district organized to-day by electing Geo. E. White, or Bepublic county, chair man, aud Geo.W. 3Iartin, ol Davis county, secretary. Every county was fully repre sented. John A. Anderson was nominated by a rising vote. The following resolutions were adopted without a dissenting vote, those relating to 31r. Anderson creating unusual enthu siasm : Whtrtas, Wc recognize the fact that the growth of our nation to a deserved position of permanent prosperity and sunremacv in thu art of good govern ment depends largely upou the virtues and intelligence of those vvuo control its des tiues at the ballot box, and the deport ment by labor of those great resources of wealth which nature hath so bountifully bestowed upon the laud of our inheritance aud adoption, and, ahertai in regulation of the truths good citizenship requires us tovield our allegancc to these particular organizations which affords the most promise of multiplying these facilities for education, which lead up to the broad highway of intelligent citizenship and of dignifying and protecting labor as the sure foundation of national content ment, peace and prosperity; therefore, Resolved, By the Republicans of the Fifth congressional district or Kansas In convention assembled : First, Thatwc do hereby declare our selves to bo iu full accord with the princi ples and policy or the Republican party, and the principles as enunciated by the platforms of 1872, 1876 and 1880, and the policy as declared by the present efforts of its representative In congress to devise liberal means of education as the bulwark ol safety to our institutions, and to main tain the protc.lion of home industry upon which American labor depends for its re ward. Second, That the proposition of the Democratic party to force the great indus tries of the country and to Increase the disturbances Incident to free trade experi ments, Is In violation to commercial inter ests and disastrous, and a consequent Im poverishment or labor which should be and will be promptly rejected by the country. Third, That we unhesitatingly affirm that the disposition or the Republican party to adopt as the guiding principles orits states manship a thorough diffusion of knowledgo among the masses, and such a reward for labor as will enable an industrious person to lay hold of the means of physical com fort and Intellectual development, entitles it to the continued confidence and support of the people. Fourth, That our hearty commendations are hereby tendered to the Hon. John A. Anderson, our representative in Congress, for his faithful services in support ol the many Important matters of legislation which arc of prominent interest to the peo ple or Kansas and the Nation. The success lul conclusion of his efforts to compel the taxation of railroad lauds, all of said land within bis own district now being upon the tax roll bearing their share of the public burdeni, and for his labors for the adjudi cation of land titles, the conflict between corpniations and settlers in several parts of the State being a detriment to the progress or, and a great wrong upon many settlers, and for his determined resistance to the incroaebments up on the rights of the government, and the people by corporations and monop-'ies, that for his faithful and efficient services and distinguished character we cordially tcuder him our support for re-election lor a fourth term. Fifth, That these representatives or the Republican party or the Fifth congressional district of the State of Kansas in conven tion assembled, iu giving expression to our full confidence In the honesty, integrity and great ability of Hon. John A. Anderson, tind gtcat pleasure in availing ourselves of the precnt opportunity to express our un qualified and emphatic approval or his course upon the tariff question, believing as wc do that the views of our representa tive 011 that question as jut aud reasona ble ; and his action on the floor of the House, especially 011 the Morrison bill, has been that ol a wine and far seeing states man. Sixth, That while wc are in favor or a protective tariff, wc do, nevertheless, be lieve th?t it is our agriculturalists first, and not our lumbermen that need protection; however, we arc In favor or placing lumber upon the free likt We also believe that teas, coffees, spices, mahogauy, logwood and all other articles which constitute the basis of coloring matters io not come in competition cither with American indus tries in agriculture or manufacturing, and, therefore, ought to be al-o relegated to the list of free goods, to the nd that the reve nues of the government may be reduced and all of our national industrial interests be at the same time duty protected. Seventh, That our representative in con gress and the delegation from Kansas gen erally are requested to support and vote for the paagc of the substitute for house res olutions numbers 145 and 276, placing the military telegraph corps of the army on the same baU with the soldiers as to penMon and homestead and other land rights.
