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

thusiasm of its members, and last nigbt'f

During tbe current public discusser

Mr. Andrew Carnegie bas proposed the

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?

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?"
