Tbe State National bank is an angle door at the cu:uur. to have The Sovereign Grand Lodge. Springfield, 111., September 21. Business and pleasure were combined by the Odd Fellows today. The inter national Sovereign Grand Lodge, now in seventy-third annual communication devoted the morning to a business ses sion, adjourning1 shortly afternoon to take part in the annual parade. A large number of decisions made during the year upon questions at ist-ue were reported by the Grand Sire. The sta tistical reports show that the member ship exceeds a round million, while that of the Daughters of Rebekah is in the neighborhood of 300,000. These figures include the independent grand lodges in the German empire, Austra lia, Denmark and Sweden, -all of which are subject to the jurisdiction of the Sovereign Graod Lodge.' The financial reports show that in this particular the order is in an eminently satisfactory condition. Ttie annual parade, which moved at 2 o'clock, was a brilliant affair. Lodges from all parts of the state were in line, and the division assigned to the Patriarchs Militant gave a military aspect to the column. The streets along the line of march were crow ded and the martial step and bearing of the Odd Fellows was recognized with cheering which ran from block to block. After the parade had disbanded the prize drills of the Patriarchs Militant opened at the state fair grounds. This evening the annual reunion of the past grand representatives will take place in the first Methodist church, when there will be addresses by W. G. Nye, of Minne sota, Lucius S. Fuller, of Connecticut, and Stillwell H. Russell, of Texas. Strong1 Proof of Prosperity. Springfield, III., September 21. : An object lesson of the fact that im proved conditions are prevailing in the industrial world is afforded in the an nual report submitted to the Sover eign Grand Lodge by the Mutual In demnity association, one of the largest of the few insurance bodies licensed by the Sovereign Grand Lodge to make provision for the widows and orphans of deceased members. The returns made by President aad General S. A. Mi'ler of Chicago and J. B. Freidheim of Camden, Arkansas, chairman of -the board, oi directors, snows that the as- soc ation is operating in twenty-five states by virtue of the license of the Sovereign Grand Lodge and subordinate jurisdictions, and has in force certificates repre senting over six million dollars of in surance. During the first six months of the present year nearly twelve hundred new certificates were issued, representing a million and a half dol lars of insurance, being the largest in crease in membership for a similar period in tbe history of the organiza tion, while for the month of August the new certificates aggregated nearly three hundred. As the certificate holders are In the main composed of wage workers or professional men of moderate incomes the remarkable in crease so far during the year is regard ed as a significant sign of tbe times, es pecially as the organization operates on the natural premium system instead of the assessment basis. Union Veteran Legion. Columbus, O., Sept. 21. Various local c mm it tees having chrge of the arrangements for the twelfth national encampment of the Union Veteran Le gion were actively engaged today in receiving and making provision for the numerous arrivals of comrades acd members of the ladies' auxiliary.

Mr. Aronsteiu aad Mi?s Helens Ster- nau will-be married tomorrow night at the residence of ex-Alderman Kohlberg oo North Oregon s reet 'The baopy couple will take a bridal trip into Mex ico. The W. G. Walz company has opened a fancy lea'-her fa :tory io the city - of Mexico, The Opera The Columbia Opera company are now playing the current week in San Antonio. Their performance of Fra Diavolo Saturday night was satisfactory both in singiDg and from a dramatio standpoint. There is genuine satisfac tion in listening to a good ensemble; a fact illustrated by the experience here of the Grau Opera company as well as the Columbia company. Of course trreat stars are real nice luminaries to listen to and look at. But the equally great cost of maintenance necessitates a decided whittling down of expenses with the chorus, and Metropolitan opera house experience in New York has demonstrated that 91000 to $2500 per night stars baoked by a fish horn chorus will always cause disatisfaction. Good all-round singing is what is de manded, and it is evident that travel ing troupes are having that In mind. Miss Balch, the prima donna was a special favorite Saturday night, and her sweet, pure lyric voice won tbe hearts of her audience. Tbe other singers all did well, and the interpola tion of the saxtet from Lucia, one of the most beautiful pieces of concerto melody ever written, was deservedly well received. An encore might readi ly have been responded to, but it was evident that Miss Balch was not feel ing sufficiently strong to make the at tempt. The finale where the shooting comes in was made a farce by the appearance on the staare of the bird dog belonging to the local manager of tbe theatre. The dog, true to its nature, chased and trashed around tbe stage to the disgust of both audience and performers. Why this dog should be allowed to roam at will in the opera house during per formances is what is occasioning a great deal of grumbling, and Lessee Walker will be complained to, if be has not heard of the matter already. There were three dogs in tbe house Saturday night rushing around among the seats, and theatre goers are wondering how much longer this sort of thing is to be kept up. Under previous manage ments no dog was allowed in the bouse. A number of people in the audience were wishing that tbe orchestra had been larger, especially in the Bohe mian Girl and Fra Diavolo. Twelve or fifteen men would have been the pro per figure. Encouragement In Buatneas. "There is no baiting in the advance. Business grows better in all ways, for while its speculative end breaks con spicuous gamblers .for a decline, a steady increase in production, in work ing force and in the power of the peo ple to purchase is the feature which overshadows all others. Reports of New York trades unions show an In crease since one year ago of 34 per cent. in tne number oi men at work, and a si milar increase among men in like posi- :ion tnroughout tbe country would ex ceed 340,000, while every week adds oa any establishments to the active list. The coalminers' strike has disclosed such facts and brouerht to liffht such differences that work will probably be very soon resumed by a large share or the men. The farmers are helped by nigher prices for wheat, and, while western receipts do not show that they have marketed a tenth of their crop, as surance or handsome profits to come prepares them to buy liberally hereaf ter. Because of this and the increase of hands at work dealers throughout the country have started to replenish stocks, which is the great force at pres ent operating in manufactures and trade though distribution by retail trade has greatly increased. A fain of 12 per cent, in one month of the output of pig iron from 165,378 tons August 1 to iso.oob fceptember 1 with a knowledge that half a dozen other fur- nances are preparing to resume, and that unsold stocks have been reduced 14,440 tons weekly in August, indicat ing a consumption of about 190,000 tons, more than explains the moderate advance in prices of finished products, averaging but 6 per cent, since the lowest point, August 12. Wheat has risen 5 cents the past week, not in a flurry, but in answer to the daily in creasing foreign demand. Though re ports oi the crop now almost wholly out of dangor indicate a yield never surpassed but once, foreign accounts still strengthen the belief that the de ficiency abroad will be about one hun dred million bushels more than usual, and meanwhile reports indicate that less corn than was expected will be available for export." From Dan's Review, Sept. 11. For the first time in seven years, it is said, the demand for labor is greater than the supply in many parts of Ala bama, and, as a result, there is not a strike or labor dispnte of any kind in tne state, increased demands lor Ala bama iron in Europe are pressing the furnaces to fill orders. Coal mine and f urance operators are advertising for labor to meet the requirements of the i-ituation, and labor agents are being piaceu in tne neia.
