entirely by the Grand Cominandery oi

until a later convocation.
c >:i Tu ~ ig, Bates Lodge No.

CONCLAVE OF GRAND COMMAND
ERY.
On Wednesday last at high twelve
oocured the twenty-third Grand Con
i clave in the Masonic Temple of the
Grand Commandery of West Virginia,
with all the officers present, and the
! wing Past Grand Commanders in
at:,; ance: Hugh Soling, Alexander
Park. J. A. Miller. J. W. Morris. Alfred
Pauli, and W. W. Van Winkle; also
v«: v chartered Coraanderv of the State
tally represented. The reports of all the
tii rts were presented to the Grand
j Body, and shown forth to the Sir
Knights present, that Teinplarism was
making good substantial progress in
cur little Mountain State, that the best
of harmony prevails throughout her
jurisdiction, and that fifty-nine new
soldiers of the cross have been added
to the Fraternity to battle valiantly for
the cause of our Master “Immanuel.”
that they may. V en the carnage inci
dent to life shall have ended, come forth
as conquer rs. with him and with their
motto inscribed on their banner. “God
With rs." As the business of the
Conclave was onlv of routine nature,
th" e mmittees apointed were not com
pelled to do very much laborious duties,
and in consequence about 1 o’clock or
soon thoreaf r. the first session closed.
At 2:30 in the afternoon the parade that
had been in contemplation for weeks
t iok place, but owing to the rain in the
| , arly morning, and the prospect of its
! continuance during the entire day.
i many of the Sir Knights and visiting
; (’••mmanderies from cities surrounding
Whirling did not come, hut notwith
standing. there were nearly 000 in line,
j as follows:

The column moved from the Masonic
Tempi promptly on its march of about
two miles returning to the Temple,
where the parade was reviewed by the
Grand Commanderv. All along the line
of march the sidewalks were lined with
visitors to our city, and its populace.
! whilst many of the residences and busi
| n. ss houses were fin lv decorated with
i flags ami hunting, displaying to the eye
i the colors of the order. Wheeling Com
mandery. the mother of Knight Ternp
! tarism, mot only of West Virginia, hut
j of Old Virginia and Pennsylvania!, was
1 placed at the head of the line, and had
a large number in their ranks. Alle
gheny and Tnncred Commanderies
were placed in line as to seniority, the
former escorted by No. 1. the latter by
No. 7. of Wheeling. Roth of the visit
I im Commanderies displayed themselves
in going through various evolutions
during the march, which were done in
faultless manner to the edification of
many people who had oportunity to
view tfhem. and to receive their ap
plause. Of the other Commanderies in
line, all were of cur own jurisdiction
except Hope, of St. Clairsville. all of
whom we must say. marched splendid
ly and looked like veterans as to pre
cision of step, and manner of executing
fine movements, which they did during
the entire march. Of the bands we
must say we had more to the square
inch than has been seen or heard in
Wheeling for a long period, as regards
the number of men in line, and of first
class bands than has ever before npear
ed on the streets of our city with a
fraternal organ Nation. After the nnr
ade was over, the Grand Commanderv
again resumed its labors, when the fol
lowing officers were elected and ir.stall
ed for the ensuing year: Rt. Eminent
Grand Commander, T X. Tavenner.
Parkersburg: A’ice Fminent Grand
Remitv Commander. John A. 7^rn. of
Wheeling; Fruinent Grand Generalissi
mo. George TV Rolt. of Fairmont- rini
nent Grand Captain General. F. H ATar
kell, of Charleston: Eminent Grand
Prelate. J. A. Bryan, of Parkersburg;
Eminent Grand Senior Warden. J. K. F.
Steele, of Bramwell; Eminent Grand
Junior Warden. William Campbell, of
Charles Town: Eminent Grand Treas
urer. D. W. Emmons, of Hunt

R C. Dunnington. of Fairmont;
Eminent Grand Standard Bearer,
J. E. Vandervoort. Weston; Em. Gr.
Sword Bearer. George W. Creel, of
Grafton; Em. Gr. Warden. Charles H.
Ahrens; Em. Gr. Cant, of Buard, Sam
uel W. Myers, of Martinsburg. After
the installation, which was conducted
by Past Grand Commander Riheldaffer.
assisted by Past Grand Commander
Sterling, as grand marshal, the body
was clespd to meet on Thursday morn
ing. when only business of a routine
nature was acted on. and reports of
committees made. One of the princi
pal features of this conclave, was the
creating of an office to be known as
Inspector General, whose duty it shall
be to visit ev'—r eommandery of the
jurisdiction and ascertain if the work
ings of the ritual and the costumes are
uniform and in conformity with the
edicts of the Grand Encampment and
the Grand Commanderv. Sir Hugh
Sterline. Grand Commander, was elect
ed to the office for five years, and the
commanderies should prepare them
selves for inspection, for he mieht drop
on them unawares. Sir Odell S. Long,
the first Grand Commander, having for
the first time In twenty-three years,
been prevented, owing to business, from
attending this conclave, a telegram
was sent expressing rfgret at his ab
sence. with the hope of his lie ng pres
ent many years yet to coni'*. The work
of the Grand Commanderv having been
accomplished, it was closad to meet in
Parkersburg on the second Tuesday in
May. 1898. During the Installation cere
monies. Sir George W. Creel, the Grand
Standard Rearer, was doubly decorated,
first by the jewel of his-office, and then
by a Past Commander’s jewel, which
was procured for presentation to him
bv the Knights of his Commanderv.
To say he was surprised is no joke, for
he was so muchly so as to nearly he
unable to find words for utterance.
As to the reception provided for vls
j iting Knights, the arrangement proved
first-class. Wheeling Commanderv re
i ceiving at the Hotel Windsor from early
j morn until eight o’clock in the evening,
; and also gave to all visitors a souvenir,
i in the shape of a glass, on which was a
maltese cross, inscribed with the motto.
“In hoc Signo Vinces, and compliments
of Wheeling Commanderv No. 1. May.
1897.’’ Many there were who wanted
one of them who were not members of
the order, hut the demand exceeded the
supply, and they werp all gone before
the headquarters closed. Cvrene had
headquarters at the McLure House, and
had a full house all day long, and en
I tertained every one royally until six
o’clock in the evening, when prepara
! tions had to be made for the joint re
ception of Wheeling and Cyrene Com
manderies, which were given at that
hotel from 9 until 12 o’clock that even
i ing.
The account of the good work done ;
I hv the members of the Fraternity of
Wheeling, would not be complete if we
did not refer to the efforts made by the
i Scottish brethren, under the direction
of Grand Secretary Parrah. who opened
up headquarters in a room just south of
the Hotel McLure. which was splendid
ly decorated, not only with bunting and
flags, but with emblems and regalia
of the rite. There was also displayed
there Pro. Parrah’s banner of Knights
Templar badges, which he gathered
' while attending the Cleveland. Chicago j
and San Francisco Conclaves, and its
beauty were praised by the many
: Knights and ladies who viewed it. A
souvenir glass was also given by Rro. I
Parrah. on which was delineated the j
Pouble Eagle, and the inscription “The
Consistory of W. Va. 32.” and the motto. |
“Spes nea in deo est." This souvenir,
os well as the one presented by Wheel
ing Commandery No. 1, was furnished
bv the North Wheeling Glass Works,
and made under the supervision of Sir
: Fred J. Park, member of Wheeling
Commandery No. 1. The visitors at
Scottish Rite headquarters not only re
ceived the gift of the glass, but were
well entertained whilst there.
BY THE PESERT ROFTE.
Special telegram by air-line to the
Sunday Register, from Osiris of Wheel
ing. May 14th. 3 p. m.
“The good ship of the desert has pull
ed in her sails, and now comes into
i port with thirty, who were once of the
unregenerated, now thoroughly subdu
ed. sore, and muchly sunburnt on the’ir
souls, (if we consider their feet is
where they keep their understanding),
but otherwise marked right-side up with
care, and are now. (animals and Arabs),
enjoying the fodder of Osiris at Stamm's j
Hotel, Wheeling.”
To explain the above, we must exam
ine the log. furnished by the
| Arab Captain of the Cheese Knife, who
i done away with those thirty pilgrims,
hut as the ramel that brought them was
I sure footed, he came out of the race 30
j to 1. against time, or of any of the mules
that we’ve had hushed.or the driver who
was kicked bald in order to win. and
as the victors came up the home stretch
1 and under the live wire of Irwin’s elec
tricity. it is said to have been the most
j successful inning played for strikes (to
he had later on nt the Stamm House),
ever held in Wheeling. So much for
the Noble who furnished the salve to
make the wci k go smoothly, and the
cordial to keep the pilgrims in good
. health during the journey.
Well, we saw the caravan as she was
on her journey to Arion’s heights, and 1
as the ship Osiris come to view, we saw j
at its prow, a squad of Wheeling’s fair- -
est. doing duty, and to throw overboard !
any tramp who could not pay his pas
sage money to Arabian lands. Mayer’s
band, led by our Bro. Billie, followed
them in the wake, and discoursed some !
familiar airs, to encourage them in the
discharge of the arduous duties of j
tramping. Behind them followed, at a \
little less than break-neck speed, a
double team of fine coal bank mules, \
that it run against wind at a mile a min
ute would get there some tlme.provided ,
they did not kick a streak of lightening. )
and call a halt on those who followed j
closely in their tracks, but then the
driver of those two-forty wags, though \
bald. won. for we'de. and thtn (the :
mules included), had just come out of
the bush, where they had been fed. and
ail looked the very picture of health. :
Following the muleteers was the Pale- j
n-Late, a dinifying persounge seated on i
the throne of Turkey, whose costume j
and make-up was such as ti cause us *
to think he should be sent over to
Greece, to maks those greedy fellows
lay down their arms, ave, probably
their heads, so that his cheese knife- j
man migH do away with them. Near
him was his prophet, whose name we !
were told was High-a-High Muck-a- j
Muck, but whose duty, tlthougn a wolff !
in nature, is o detect all A vh? who arc :
going about seeking grub to devour,
and are wolves in sheep’: clothing, and
although there was not, nor couid there
be, flies on cither the Pom’ ite cr him,
they had two Hottemotts dressed in
nature (except a clout), who wer? fan
ning away at imaginary ilies, bu: they
I HAD THE FUND S BEHIND HIM.
Howe—I met Brokeleigh on the str eet to-day. He Informed me that he is
going into a big literary venture.
How^?"^further told » e that he had one hundred thousand dol
lars behind him. . . . . „ . OT,v .u
Comeyewsew—Ah, he was standing in front of a bank, eh.
looked natural as life, and were much
admired as the float went by. The live
camel attracted much attention, though
many thought he seemd to slo*»pv to do
justice i) forty riders, but l.e must h«ue
been mad, for his back was not only up
once, but had got up twice, but that
may only have been a ruse to form a
saddle for the accommodation of the un
regenerated, the humps to drop
out of sight, and let them slide off and
get a kick from his heels for falling.
Following came the thirty victims who
were to ride the aforesaid camel to
death, or the mule to victory, all full
of fine spirits and eager for more, (I
mean degrees), and following them was
the inule that we’ed left behind in the
bush, as a reserve force, if the mules
at the head of the line kicked out of
the traces before the driver got kicked
bald to win. Now followed the Noble
men of Osiris, in fine order, one of them,
badly in form, strutted along the high
way as though he desired some one to
tread on the tail of his coat, and wished
to have opportunity to leave the mark
of his claws behind him as a memento
of the orcasion. All clad with the fez
and dress coats, looked immense. We
failed to mention the Arab patrol, a
fierce body of cheese and meat sllcers,
who go into the business of putting
through a candidate in good order, but
just think, sixteen Arabs to one candi
date, when he wants to get a little
cheese sandwich on his journey. But
how could it he otherwise, for to reach
fame he must he done away with hv
those fellows. The success of the last
effort of Osiris to have pleasure and to
entertain the unregenerated was large
ly due to the Potentate, W. W. Irwin,
the other officers of the Temple, and
all others who took part in the cere
monies. even to the mule who laughed
until he got fat. and the camel who
over-fed at the Stamm and has not been
corralled as yet.
THE MOGULLIANS.
The installation of officers for 'La
Belle Conclave No. 2^, which has been
deferred for some time, will take pace
next Wednesday evening, and in addi
tion a candidate has been secured to
traverse the path which leads to the
abode of All MJagusalem. the High
Cheif Porus Paster of all Moguls. Pro.
McGee, of Benwood. No. 3. who had the
nerve to travel at the last meeting, will
be on hand to give the prospective Jack
information as to the best and most
direct route. This will be an unusual
advantage and inducement not offered
to everybody. It is sincerely hoped
that the’Yellow Gang will find time tu
appear on this occasion and make it hot.
for the man who knows all about it
until he gets into it. when he admits
that there is more in it than he antici
pated. The Mogullian? have done much
to elevate the A. O. I . M. to the high
position it now holds among fraternal
organizations, and will continue in the
good work as strong as ever. Conclaves
may come and go like a circus, but La
Belle Conclave 2*4 goes on forever, not
withstanding claims for broken china
ware and ceiling plaster, which is some
times accidentally shaken from the
walls during the course of operations.
\s yet there have been no broken necks,
as some peope predicted, and for this
the members are grateful and some
times surprised, if it must be admitted
I et everv Mogullian come to the next
meeting.’loaded with ammunition and
candidates, if you can get them, and it
you can’t get them, come without them.
