TUESDAY EVENING. FEB. U, 1909.
The scene iD the Young People' Building hst night was one long to b remembered i y all wbo mingled in tb happy gathering which participated ii the closing act of the observance of th 22d of February. Tue auditorium o tbe building bad been metamorphose* into a banquet ball where Masons frou diilerent sections of the world met parted aud uttered thrilling truths con cr ming tbe principles of an historic in s.lunion tbe tenets ol which have frnn time immemorial been world-wide Representatives of the fraternity wen present from Massachusetts, Oklahomi and other states of the union, while i native of far-away Ohina mingled witt brethren of the Occident. Every on< who took ? prominent part in thc exercises seemed attuned to his number, and while the responses to the toast* were impromptu, there was no faltering, and tbe words uttered were trulj ex animo. Tbe speeches were brief bul pregnant with beautiful aod apt illus, trstions and references, and the exclama tiona uf appreciation were loud and hearty. Alexandria-Washington Lodge never conceives or executes anythirj ia a nalf-hca-ied manner. Wbatevei is attempted enlists the energy and en? thusiasm of its members, and last nigbt'f festivities were justly noted by all pres? ent a- among the most successiul of the annual entertainments given by tbi fraternity in this city. During tbe current public discusser of the pros and cods of a permanent tari! commiesion in connection with the prob lem of revision before the new congress, Mr. Andrew Carnegie bas proposed the crea'ion of a supreme industrial court, which eventially would have to pan opon prices. After referring to the ab? surdity of leaving the question of tarif* revision to the tender mercies of legit tors having no technical knowledge 0/ the subject and misled by interested parties, Mr. Carnegie, taking tbe role of prophet, said: The industrial world is about ti un? dergo the most momentous change kuown in its hiatrry. * * * We are rapid? ly losing competition in articles of gen? eral consumption upon which nanon* have hitherto depended to iosure reason? able prices for the conenmer. Some ot our most important industries are toda only nominally competitive, and in real? ity are monopolies so far that an under? standing exists as to prices tbat will pre? vail. Mich attention faa been paid to the speech made by Chairman Gary, of the steel trust, at the dinner of the Illinois 8 >ciety in New York last week, in which he declared that vetted rights must yield whenever they became antagonistic to the public welllare and safety. Be arged tbat leading men in business should try to harmonize themselves with public officials for tbe betterment of govern? ment management. Ia this cojnection Judge G ?ry said: "Tho opportunities for the acqui* sidon of wealth have been and are eo great that large and increasing fortunes of individuals and corpora? tions compel the most thoughtful men to dread the results of the fir ure unless tbe influence and power of money can be controllen by government authority. Tbe question is too far-reaching to be laughed out of court. If the power of money be not so controlled, who earn tell when cr how or to what exttnt it na? be attacked by the mob?" I'i:< m n h 1 wife invaded the lodge room of tbe Order of Foresters in Spo? kane, Waah., where he wai presiding as chief ranger at the trial of a member, broke up the meeting and forced him to go home, addressing him as "imp" and "Indian," Gxrge F. Gillette was grant? ed a divorce from his wife, Anna Gil? lette, by Judge Huneke io the Spokane county Superior Court. Gillette declared ia bis petition that be wat forced to leave home, following the lodge room ?pi?ode, to escape the ridicule of neigh bors and numbers of tbe order. By taking him borne, the complainant adds, she broke up the lodge trial and he waa forced to resign his office, as it wss like? ly his wife would come after him at any time during lodge meetings. Tbls was dreadful; will nov body blame bim? Bot where wa< the goat? That would have put a quietus ta her. ?gsjafi??????-?? At Portlan.l, Malwa, u?t week depu? ty sherifh raided the officea and itore hoases ol seven express companies and confiscated liquors valued at $0,000 or more, this being mainly supplies of liquor from Boston consigned to parties ?bo would have received it for uss over Sunday. Tnis is the experience of all prohibitory communities. L'quor ia bought and sold in such bnt tbe state re? ceives no revenue therefrom. 1'Roprik. || ,.)ii? in Kenosha, W.< , have started a pr -bibition law of tbsir own, refusing lo sell liquor ta nine habiti.ally thirat men ol the town. Tbis ls a most excellent Hes and its adoption in other cities would do much ,to check the radicals ia their prohibition move? ments. The retirement of the employes in tbe c'aa-ified civil service is provided in a bill introduced yesterday by Representa? tive Gillett, of Massachusetts. M re pensions!_ From Washington.

It is announced that tonight will see the end of tbe conference.

It will he submitted to President Roosevelt, Presi? dent Diaz, and Premier Lord Grev, of Canada, and noue of ila terms will he made public except by these three otri? cia's.
