McKeesport. Pa., had a unique pa rade a l'ew nights ago when no less than 3,000 women and young girls pa raded the streets on their way to the meeting of Rev. "Billy" Sunday, the baseball evangelist who conducted a tive weeks' campaign in Fargo last spring. It was women's night, and in ad dition tho night was called "the 25 cent" night, for each one attending on this occasion was expected to give that amount to the cause. It is stat ed that there were 10,000 people in the tabernacle that evening. At noon the next day Rev. Mr. Sun day spoke to the delegates to the United Brotherhood convention of the United Presbyterian church in the city of Pittsburg, while in the same afternoon Rev. I,. K. Peacock, who was in Fargo with Mr. Sunday, ad dressed 500 people on Let the Re deemer of the Lord Say So. The to tal collections received by the Sunday meetings until Wednesday night last in McKeesport amounted to the sum of $4,147.11. At the last Sunday night meeting Mr. Sunday spoke on the text, Thy own Wickedness Shall Convict Thee, md the 10,000 people who heard the sermon were much moved. The final reports of tHfe meetings that were held by Sunday in Beaver Falls last spring prior to his coming here, show that $13,589.21 passed through the hands of the committee 'having the meetings in charge in ad dition to the $10,000 that was handed over to the evangelist on his last Sun day there. Homnr Rodeheaver, the chorister of (lie Sunday party, is expected to be able to leave the Bast Liverpool, hospital next week and rejoin the meetings, as he has about recovered from his attack of erysipelas. It is stated that Mr. Sunday has been invited to hold a series of meet ings in the city of St. Paul and lu is considering the matter, and has written to the effect that he will not go there unless the churches are unanimous for his coming. It is be lieved that he will be in St. Paul within the next few months and in order to do this will set 'jack a pre viou?Jy made date. Wm. L. Cook.

GAVE FAIiuOANS "WARM" WELCOME DULUTN #HRINERS PUT ON SUCH CLEVER STUNTS THAT EL ZAGAL TEMPLE MAY IM PORT THEM BODILY TO THIS CITY.- Duluth Herald: Cleverness on, the part of A. F. M. Custance at shttne ceremonials hag become so much the usual thing that only visitors wonder at it, and last night the "stunts" put on by the musical director at the cer emonial of Aad temple had its effect upon the visitors from El Zagal temple of Fargo and Kem temple of Grand Forks, to such a degree that it. would not be surprising should they make an effort to have Noble Custance's entire "companv" attend their neect ceremonials in their home towns. They talked about it last night. As a prelude to the ceremonial the visitors and local members were en tertained by one of these "stunts." In the cast were about thirty of the city's prettiest girls, who in addition to the impression made by their appearance, could really sing and act. They posed as the Fates and what they did not do to "that North Dakota bunch" could be quickly told. Mr. Custance had taken the scores of the most popular airs of the day and had written for them the words which localized and Fargoiv-ed tile situation to a nicety. He played upon the weaknesses and characteris tics of the visitors to such an extent that they admitted that he had for them held the mirror up to nature. The hits were generally acknowl edged as exceedingly clever and Mr. Custance was the recipient of hundreds of compliments. The visitors were each presented with souvenirs and former Governor Sarles of North Dakota, past potentate of El Zagal temple, was pre sented with a floral heart, one of the young women makinir the presentation in a neat address. The illustrious visitor replied in an apt speech which amply sustained his reputation in that line. During the ceremonial, which fol lowed, Governor Sarles and M. A. Bald win of Fargo, both past potentates of El Zagal, occupied seats on the official divan. Eleven pilgrims crossed the hot sands to the tune of much mirth. In the banquet room, luncheon was serv ed. The attendance was large and the whole evening's entertainment was very successful. Visitors*, besides those from ffl Zagal and Kem temples, were noticed from Tripoli of Milwaukee, Medinah of Chi cago, El Iliad of Sioux Fall, and other temples throughout the west. We Buy Scrso Iron.

NOT YET READY MAYOR SWEET SAYS THAT IN VESTIGATION COltiMITTfcE MAY NOT REPORf FOR* SEVERAL DAYS YET—REPORT IS^ NOT RE40Y 1*&R THI8 EVENING. Mayor Sweet stated this morning to a Forum representative that the report of the special investigation committee of the city council appointed to probe the alleged graft charges in connect ion with the police department, will prob ably not be made public for several davs yet. There is to be an adjourned meeting of the city council tonight at which it has generally been expected that the report of the committee will be sub mitted and made public. The mayor said this morning he did not think it was possible for the committee to get its report in shape in time enough to submit tonight as it yet had several witnesses to call in the matter. The mayor says h© feels he has been somewhat unjustly criticized about the secrecy of the sessions of the com mittee and its procedure. Ia the first place he said he was the one who wanted all the sessions of the com mittee open to the public, but that after the appointment of the committee he found it was better to- have the sessions held in secret as in that way naorc could be learned from the wit nesses they called, who were in no way duty bound to appear or tell any thing on summons of the committee unless they were so disposed. "It was only a matter of expediency that we concluded to hold the sessions in secret," said the mayor. "As it was felt that much more could be accom plished in that way. Everything will be told at the right time, when all the evidence is in. From the looks of things now I don't think that wUI be for several days yet." VUNEIt WAS KEPT BUSY YESTERDAY GRAND. FORKS SECRETARY/ OF THE Y. M. C. A. SPOKE AT THREE DIFFERENT PLACES IN FARGO AND MADE AN EXCELLENT IM PRESSION. Yesterday was an exceedingly busy d^y for Secretary Werner of the Y. M. C. A. of Grand Forks, for he made three addresses during the day here. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon ho spoke to a large crowd in the men's meeting at the association and tall. i on the Objective of the Y. M. C. A. w Phone 125. IN in general. He opened his discourse by givinp a clear and concise history uf the formation of the Y. M. C. A. and of how its work had gone into ev« r civilized country in the world and how it was constantly going onwar and upward. He talked of the work that it was engaged in for the youth of the country and spoke of the work that was done in training men for th field. He said that the present Y. M. C. A. grow out of the fact that some religious men In England formed a club in the store they were employ J. and told how that club had grown in membership until larger quarters bad to be secured. He talked of the churches uniting in assisting in the work, on the whole his address was exceedingly interesting. After the meeting was concluded the resident members served tea In one of the rooms and Mr. Werner gave them a short talk. Last evening he again spoke in the First Congregational church to a large audience and took for his subject The Community's Interest in the Y. M. C. A. work. He showed that every man, woman and child in the city should be interested in this work and of the good such an organization is in a com munity, but he said that the parent who relied too much on the association for the religious training of the child was not acting wisely toward that child. Dr. Beard, pastor of the church, gave a short talk at the close of the meet ing. This morning Secretary Werner met Secretary Wolf and the other em ployed men about the assoeiat: building and a conference on the w s both here and in Qrund Forks folio ed. Mention should be made of the cellent music that was furnished the glee club of the association yestt day afternoon. It was very much predated. THE NEWLYWEDS-OF THE STONE AGE AND TODAY.

Hodgson Realty COURT AGAINST WITH INTEREST HERE BY THE FRATERNITY. North Dakota 'ha* many members of the Modern Woodmen of America and they will all be interested in a recent decision that was given in the state of Iowa. In the district court at Des Moinear, Judge Bradshaw has filed a decision in the Modern Wood men rate case tried before him two weeks ago in which he holds against the society on aW points. The de cision sweepingly denies the right of the supreme governing body of the society to enact legislation increasing the insurance rates of the members, Judge Bradshaw, holding that the rates lixed to the benefit certificates issued to the members constitute a lixed contract that cannot be modi fied by any legislation thereafter en acted. Judge Bradshaw holds that instead of increasing rates if the so ciety requires a larger income to meet its assumed insurance obligations, it has its remedy in the levy of an in creased number of assessments. Whether the decision will apply to the members of the society in North Dakota and elsewhere, or only to the individual plaintiffs in the suit tried, will not be known until the decree is entered. The society has already given notice that it will appeal the case and It will doubtless "be fought to the courts of last resort.
