nigbti of Pythias are to be Hoyally
Entertained at
rhe three local companies of the Unlrm
Rank, Knights of Pythias, are preirlng
for their approaching trip to the
dlaaapolls national encampment, bennlng
Monday, August 22, and It la
pected-fully 160 of the Wheeling unlrmed

and other knights wdll accompany

, the Fan Handle road,
rhe Indianapolis encampment Is of
fecial Interest as the order, will celeate
die twentieth anniversary of the
alformed Hank In the city of Its birth,
je fact that the Uniform Hank was
irn In Indianapolis twenty years ago
la month Is not generally known, but
was there that the supreme lodge
issed the resolution giving existence
this higher degree1, wMch has now
tcotne such an Important branoh of
Previous -to the organization of this
parate military branch, the order of
nights of Pythias was known as a
exni-mllltary" body and there was a
ilf-way attempt on the part of moat of
e lodges to appear military. At the
inual meetings of the supreme lodge
rge delegations would go, as they do
>w, to the convention city and a Wg
monstratlon would be made. Old
embers of the order, who remember
w* gatherings, admit now that they
jre ludicrous In some ways and it Is a
atter of "history that members of other
ders laughed at the spectacle.
-? I
mere was aiways a. sircvi. pmauc ???
was In this that the ludlcrousnesa of
e attempt at military display became
parent In a painful way. At the conntlon
In Cleveland In 1877 this was e?clally
noticeable. There had been pro- ,
ulgated a sort of an order regarding
ilforms? but no two lodges seemed to
terpret It thejiame way, as it was not
nding on any, every imaginable kind
uniform and dress were to be seen in
e Cleveland parade. There were some
Jges which had made careful and contentious
attempts at dressing In the
egulatlon" uniform. Some whole
ites came uniformed alike and would
ive appeared well alone, but there was
diversity of colors, different styles,
tapes and material of helmets; and,
ought together, as they were, lnt??one
ganization, the dissimilarity became
iinfully apparent. Something akin to
Uniform Rank company was in existce
.under the name of drill corps. They
ade an effort to appear well In the
leveland parade, but as there was no
mpulsion about uniforms, many corps
ere uniformed no further than that
"" ?"*"> ?M?* nrmft Thore were swords
id belts buckled over Prince Albert
ata, over short sack coats and over
len dusters, but the sword was always
ere. All these costumes appeared in
le company in many instances and the
>adgear was equally as heterogeneous,
here were silk tiles, dfcrby Hats, straw
its and caps.
This display of miscalled uniform on
lblic occasions of the order provoked
uch ridicule from other societies and
any of the knighthood had been
ought thereby, to the belief that the
me had come for the order to take adinced
ground on the matter of uniform
id the uniforming of the knighthood,
stead of following In the w.tke of other
tiers their desire was to put the
nights of Pythias on a basis never here
reached by any other fraternity,
hese were the men who believed in
king the so-called semi-mljltay organation
and remodeling It, so that it
ouid "become a thorough military body
least so far as one branch of it was
ncorned, and that its outward display
tould be consistent and pleasing in its
liformUy and serviceable as need be.
For years after the organisation of the
nights of Pythias In 1RC4, there was
Is military spirit and this idea of a
nformlty in dress. They took posseson
of the members of the order and the
ellng that the order or a part of It
tould become in fact a military organatlon
was almost unanimous, but there
its a difference of opinion us to how
le result should be acompllahed. Old
embers feared to support the Idea of a
parate branch because they thought It
nuld result in a feeling arbing between
lat branch and the members of the
ibordlnate lodges. Others argued thnt
would be a great help to the subordlite
lodges, as the branch rank would
lcourage young men to Join the order. '
When the supreme lodge met in Inanapolls
in August, 1878, everybody
as ready for something to be done. A
>eclal committee was appointed nnd
aue a report ravonng xne nuupuun vi u
tual and constitution for the new depee.
In all the discussions of It the
nlform Rank was spoken of as a "hlgh
degree." Judt at a time when It was
lought the rank would be adopted a
otlon was made to postpone the whole
alter until the next seeslon of the sureme
lodge and the motion carried,
uoh to the consternation of the thouinds
of members of the wo-oalled "drill
trpt." who were there to nld by ni"rul
jaalon, the adoption of the new rank,
ut there were men who had the course
of their convictions and did not
t the subject die on the table. Among
lem were Justus H. Rath bone, the
under of the order. The next morning,
ugurit, .10, 1878, a Kentucky repreJcntave
moved that the matter of the Unlirm
Rank be taken from the table and
considered. This was done and a renoitlon
for the adontlon of the rank car
ed. The Hupremo chancellor at once
ppolnted :? committee to prepnre a
tual and constitution nnd by Novom?r
1, there were promulfrated and "drill
>rp?" were rapidly converted Into Unl?rm
Rank companle*.
