' The party left New York on Saturday.
May 31, and on arriving at Cincinnati
was royally entertained by Syrian Tem
ple. The party was crowded into eight
Pullmans, and after reaching the Middle
West it was found necessary to divide the
train into two. sections. Imperial Poten
tate Shaffer going with the second sec
tion. This section was delayed several
hours at Minton, Colo., because of a
wreck, and this caused the section to
reach this city several hours after the
first. Both parties were well entertained
en route. At Denver the Nobles were en
tertained by El Jebel Temple, and Pikes
Peak and other points of Interest were
visited. At Salt Lake City the members
of. the party bathed in the lake and at
Sacramento the resident Nobles gave the
visitors, a breakfast and coach ride about
the city. The delegation expressed itself
as being heartily pleased with its journey
across the continent.
Imperial Potentate Philip C. Shaffer ar
rived shortly after 8 o'clock with Mr3.
Shaffer and party. They were accorded a
fcearty reception and their escort to the
imperial headquarters at the Palace was
jin imposing spectacle. The potentate ex
pressed himself as being in excellent trim
aod ready ,for,the arduous work of the
week. He was accompanied by Past Im
perial Potentates William B.. Me.llish of
Cincinnati and Lou B. Windsor of Grand
J&apids, Mich, Sixty of the party are

der at the St. Nicholas.

ters last night from Carlin, Nev., an
nouncing that Naija Temple, from Dead

cause of the delay.
Isews was received from Cinnabar.
Mont., stating that El Jebel Temple, from
Denver, was all right and that the party
expected to reach the Oakland mole be
scre 10 o'clock this morning.
¦¦ The tieadquarters of Islam Temple in
the Spreckels building annex, was a scene
of intense activity all day yesterday.
Hundreds of Nobles from all parts of the
cpuntry made pleasant calls upon mem
bers of the local Shriners and hearty
greetings were extended. For the thirsty

ing the day and evening and for the
greater part of the time standing room in
the headquarters was at a premium.
At the Palace a like state of affairs pre
vailed. Most of the visiting delegations
are quartered there, and friends of the
visitors are constantly on hand to render
the stay of friends enjoyable. The frater
nal greetings were numerous and hearty
Visiting nobles and their wives, sisters
cousins and aunts thronged the. corridors
and courtyard, each wearing the Islamic
badge, the whole presenting a scene of
animation and radiant color extremelv
pleasant to the onlookers. At the St

hotels where headquarters have been es
tablished, the crowds are constantly in
creasing in size, the result being an ac-
tivity quite refreshing to all who have oc
casion to call at the respective hostelries.

on considerable interest is being manifest
