"Camp II. N. Dunnell" at Laurel
Hill park Is ready to accommodate 600

Knights of Pythias, and their officers.

and ten additional for the rank are now

erected yesterday afternoon. The en-

campment presents a very military ap
pearance, not unlike the annual camp
of the National Guard, after which the
Uniformed Rank Is to a degree mod
eled. The soldiers' tents have been ar
ranged In ten rows or "streets," of
twenty tents to each. These are situ
ated In order on the gently sloping hill
behind the grand stand of the race
track at Laurel Hill. The spot could
not have been better selected from the
standpoints of comfort and health. The
ground Is grassy and most of the tents
are shaded by trees. The .officers' or
headquarters' tents, ten In number, are
situated In one line, facing and a little
to the right of the camp. The tents In
use are state property and were placed
at the disposal of the Uniform Rank
by Adjutant General Stewart.
ERECTION OF TENTS.
They were erected under the direc
tion of Colonel Martin Joyce, of Major
General Carnahan's staff, by the fol
lowing local Knights of Pythias, men
who are also members of the N. G. P.:
Colonel McDonald, Frank Mallott,
George Mallott, John Gaines, T. J.
Smith and Gus Moore. Sunday's storm,
fierce as It was, bowled over only twelve
of the two hundred tents. Additional
supports were placed at each tent yes
terday. It Is not generally known that this
Is the first state encampment of the
Pennsylvania Uniformed Rank. Such
Is the case. There have been National
encampments, but the state rank has
never been In encampment by them
selves. For this reason it Is not known
at present Just in what manner
the camp will be conducted. The Na
tional encampments are held under
strict military rules posting sentries
and no passing the lines without per
mission from headquarters, counter
signs, regular calls, and taps, and all
that but It can not be definitely stated
whether or not such will be the con
duct of the present camp.
According to programme the camp
will be formally opened at 9 o'clock
this morning, when the flag will climb
to the top of the pole attached to the
grand stand. The exact number of men
who will be In camp will not be known
until tonight. Ten companies at least
are expected. Ten members of Com
pany 26, Altoona, were In the city yes
terday. They arrived at 1 o'clock' p.
m. over the Delaware.Lackawanna and
VISITED THE CAMP.
Yesterday they visited the camp and
expressed themselves as pleased with
the place, but were disappointed In the
spot selected for the competition drill.
The Altoona men say the race track Is
too small for the drill manoeuvres. The
Altoona people ought ufknow, as their
company has won In the competition
drill for seven consecutive years. They
expect to win this year, but It Is said
that Company 26 will have a much
stronger competition this year than
The prize Is $300, worth trying for,
and Colonel Joyce is authority for the
announcement that several other com
panies are hard after the victory this
year. The officers of Company 26 are:
Samuel Roberts, captain; William Bal
lentlnc, first lieutenant; William Hoar,
second lieutenant. The company will
have thirty-two men In line at the drill.
The Inspecting officers will be Major
W. S. Millar, ex-Chaplain James Molr,
of this city, and Lieutenant Colonel
Wallace, of Wllkes-Barre,
At 9.05 o'clock last night a delegation
numbering over 100 men arrived from
Pittsburg and vicinity via the Dela
ware, Iyackawanna and Western rall
load. With them came General Wal
ter II. Starblrd, the state commander,
and the Knights of Pythias band, 22
pieces, of Pittsburg. After alighting
from tho train the men marched to
Lackawanna avenue and In front of
the Valley House formed a lino of fours.
The march up the avenue of this dele
gation was the most pretentious display
THE FIRST MARCHERS.
Tho Knights of Pythias band, headed
by a tall young man In a flashy gold
spoted uniform and white leggings, car
rying a silver plated musket which" ho
used as a baton, played exquisite music
for the marchers. General Starblrd
nnd his line of officers were followed by
companies 47, fil, 62 and 65, or jxarts of
each. Up Lackawanna avenue the col
umn proceeded to Wyoming to the Ho
tel Jermyn, where the line halted for a
few minutes to do deference to Major
General Carahan. The march was then
resumed to tho Terrace hotel, where the
Knights were served with supper. Af
terward the contingent boarded street
cars for Camp Dunnell at Laurel Hill
park, reaching there at 10,30 o'clock,

General Starblrd, as may be suppos
ed, was too busy to talk much for
publication last night. It Is given out
however, that camp will be regularly
opened this morning, and after that
regular military order will be attempt
ed. Colonel Grlpp, at his own ex
pense, has brought along with him
from Tyrone, his home, a buglar from
the regular cavalry. It Is the Inten
tion to sound revelle nt 6 o'clock, mess
nt 7 and thereafter drills of whatever
form the headquarters may command.
Guards will also be stationed at all
hours of the day.
Meals will be taken at 25 cents per
head at the restaurant In the park. The
soldiers are renting matresses at $1.50
for tho week, and late last night can
dles were distributed In each tent. Tho
general appearance Is quite formid
able. Fires were built In the company
streets and around these circles of men
gathered. There are now In camp
about 100 men. The number will be
materially Increased today and to
night. It Is not known Just how many com
panies will enter the competition drill
Wednesday morning, many of the
companies now here fearing that they
cannot muster a sufficient number of
men, the high railroad rates In the
west keeping down the attendance.

HOME AND FOREIGN HOTELS.
A Comparison of Their Clnlms Upon
the Comfort-Seeking Public.
American hotels are so taken up with'
the desire to dazzle us that they some
times make us uncomfortable. It Is
very fine to have one's card handled by
two men and a big boy and then a little
boy when calling upon friends at a
great hotel, but It Is fatiguing, never
theless, to wait thirty minutes and then
haw tho little boy come down and tell
you they are not at home. Though
most of us cannot abide some of the
petty nuisances of the foreign system,
such as being charged extra for soap
and service, yet many traveling Amer
icans, who are sufficiently unpatriotic,
say that our big glittering hotels are
not quite up to the standard of the
best ones ot the other side In the small
details of making one peacefully and
restfully happy. The Inn-keeper's In
stinct for knowing exactly what Is
wanted wlth'out being told Is more
highly developed over there. They have
been at it for so many more genera
tions. Tho swellest hotels In England and
on tho continent are considerably moro
economical and a great deal less lavish.
But they put on "lugs" of another sort
and some people think that they are a
moro enjoyable sort. For Instance, at
two or three hotels that set up as the
finest In the West End in London one
does not have a bird's-eye maple up
right piano in one corner of a 15x12
room and an Impressionist's cornfield
on a glided easel In the opposite one,
but his newspaper Is warmed before it
Is handed to him In the morning and
ho finds his evening clothes pressed
and laid out for him when he returns
to his room in the afternoon.

many hundreds before nightfall by tho
arrival of the delegates to the C. T. A.
II. and I. C. B. U. conventions, which
begin tomorrow morning.
At 9 o'clock this morning the recep
tion committees of the respective or
ganizations will be abroad meeting tho
incoming delegates at the trains, es
corting them to their hotels and placing
them In charge of other committees,
whose duty It will be to see that they
pleasurably employ tho Interim be
tween their arrival nnd the beginning
of tho actual convention work.
The Father Mathew men havo no
definite Idea of how many delegates
in J visitors will come, as representa
tion is not mandatory and many of
the societies do not decide to send del
egateb until it is too late to give of
ficial notification to tho general secre
tary. Rev. Father Doyle, the secre
tary, however, states In his convention
bulletin that 1,200 would be a fair esti
mate of the attendance. The local so
cieties hope that this estimate Is a
correct one, but they do not hesitate
to give out that they fear It will fall
much below this figure. No matter how
lmge the crowd may be the commit
ter Is prepared to take care of It and
It says with all earnestness tho more
COME FROM FAR AND NEAR.
Tne total abstainers are scattered
all over the United States, from the
Atlantic to the Rockies, and It Is no
uncommon thing at the annual con
ventions for the most distant societies
to not only send delegates but to at
tend In a body. This Is especially true
of societies that are drilled and uni
formed, such as the 'St. Paul's Pioneer
corps, of this city, which sent 100 men
to the Pittsburg convention, five years
ago. At the St. Louts convention the
year before many of these tourist clubs
as they are known, were In attend
ance. As yet the committee has not
received word of any of these clubs be
ing en route, but it is, nevertheless,
quite possible that some of them will
put in an appearance today.
Far-off Minnesota, where the Father
Mathew movement Is particularly
strong, has the honor of landing the
first delegates In the convention city.
They are James McDonald and his
daughter, Miss Cecilia, of Waverly,
Minn., who arrived Saturday evening.
Mr. McDonald represents the Minne
sota State union and his daughter is
delegate from the Waverly cadets.
H. F. McAteer, J. W. Boden, Richard
Sheehan and J. L. Snyder, of PlttBburg,
arrived yesterday and are stopping at
the St. Charles. Mr. McAteer is first
vice-president and organizer of the C.
T. A. U. of the Diocese of Pittsburg
and one of the best known Father
Mathew men of the state. He Is also
president of Branch 12J, C. M. B. A.,
and a prominent member of the I. C.
B. U. and Y. M. I. Mr. Boden and Mr.
Sheehan are also I. C. B. U. and Y. M.
Rev. Father Doyle, the National sec
retary, was scheduled to arrive from
New York on one of the early morning
trains. He has four rooms engaged at
the Jermyn for the national headquar
ters. A meeting of the board of gov
ernment will be held there tonight. A
serenade to the officers and delegates
Is the only other thing on the pro
gramme for today.
The ladles' societies met last evening
at St. John's church, Gig street. The
St. Paul's, of Green Ridge, was repre
sented by Miss Early; the St. Cecilia's,
of the West Side, by Miss Hennigan,
and the St. Irene's, of the South Side,
by Mrs. E. C. Connell and Mrs. Jennie
Kinney. Many others besides the
regularly constituted delegates were in
attendance and an enthusiastic meet
ing was held.
It was decided to hold a reception for
the visiting lady delegates at Hotel
Jermyn, Friday afternoon, between the
hours of four and six. The presidents
of the various local ladles' societies will
compose the reception committee and
distribute the cards of Invitation.
Rev. E. J. Melley, spiritual director
of the Scranton Diocesan union; J. C.
Gallagher, chairman of the local ways
and means comnilftee, and others
prominent in the Work were present to
aid the ladles with their counsel.
In a leter to the Tribune last night,
A. A. Boyee, of Philadelphia, national
secretary of the I. C. B. U. states that
seventy-one societies will be repre
sented at the convention, each society
sending one delegate.
Most of the societies are clustered In
and around Philadelphia, and the most
of the delegates will come from that
city on a special train leaving the
Reading terminus at 9 o'clock a. m.,
arriving here at 2:55 p. m.
A meeting of tho executive commit

HIS IDEA OF REST.
From tho Times.Herald.
A business man accustomed to hard
work for many years usually finds id

That Stupid Conductor Hnd Put Him
OtTnt tho Wrong Plncr.
From Harper's Round Table.
The train was roaring along about
forty miles an hour and the conductor
was busily punching tickets full of
holes, when a little thin old man who
sat In one of the corner Beats plucked
up his sleeve.
"Mr. Conductor, you be sure nnd let
me off at Speer's Station. You see, this
Is the first time I ever rode on Bteam
cars, nnd I don't know anything' bout
them. You won't forget It, eh?"
"All right, sir; I won't forget."
The old man brushed back a Btray
lock of hair, and straightening himself
gazed with increasing wonder at the
flying landscape, every now and then
exclaiming, "Gracious!" "By gum!" etc.
Suddenly there was a crash, and af

made him think of his school days, he
found himself sitting on the grass of
the embankment alongside the trJrck.
