Yesterday was tho sixty-eighth anni versary of Oddfellowship in this country, and the event was celebrated in an ap propriate manner bytho membors'of the ordor in this city. Tho ordor of Oddfellows is ono of the noblest and most extensive self-governed provident associations in existence. Its first organization was effected at Mancheffe ter, England, in 1812, and its growth has boon remarkable from the date of its in stitution. In England there are now be tweon 4,000 and 5,000 lodges, with a membership of over half a million. Tho order in that country still has its head quarters at Manchester, where its general business is under the supervision of a Grand Master and Board of Directors. Tho society in England has an annual in come of about $4,000,000. The first lodge in America was organ ized April 20ht, 1819, in Baltimore, by T. Wildey and four of his friends. It was known as Washington Lodge No. 1, and in ifs'work it was governed by the usages of the order in London. For a few years after its institution in this country,. the society's growth was rather slow. The second lodgo was organized March 26th, 1820, in Boston, and the third, December 20th, 1821, in Philadelphia. Having once gained a footing, however, the order spread rapidly, and lodges are to be found ' now in every State and Territory in this country. In this country and Canada there aro now in the neighborhood of fifty grand lodges, thirty-six grand encampments, over five thousand four hundred sub ordinate lodges, over fifteen hun dred subordinate encampments and more than five hundred Rebokah Degree lodges. There aro now over 500,000 odd fellows in tho Unite J States and Canada, and to givo some idea of the extent of the grand work in which the order is on gaged wo have only to state that in one yoar recently over $1,500,000 were paid out for the - relief of sick and distresssd mombars. In 1873 the subordinate lodges had a total revenue of about $4,500,000, and this iucome is much larger now. Tho seat of government is at Baltimore. Sinca 1843, the order has been independ ent of that in England, and has been known as the independent Order of Oddfellows. We hayen't tho exact date of the first institution of the order in Kentucky, but it was prior to the year 1842. At present there are one hundred and seventy-nine lodges in tho State, with .a membership of over 7,300. The Grand Lodge of this State is now officered as follows: B. U. EllloH-a. M., ot Lexington. A. J. Reed D. O. M , of Richmond. G. W. Wnlnsoott a. V., of Lexington. Win. Whlto-a. S., of Louisville. Geo. W. Morrls-G. T of Louisville. R. K. Cook G.,M., of Henderson. B. P. Remington Q, Q , of Paris. T. W. Reld-Q. O.,of Lancaster. J.J, Montague Q. H ot Cattettsburg. JohnR, B. lliokle-O. M., of Louisville. Joa Uorwl'n Q. C, Of Florence. ' Oddfellowship in Maysvillo dates back to 1842. March 14th, that year; the first lodge in this city was organized, and was given the name of DeKalb Lodge No. 12, which it still retains. Its charter members were Wm. Rea, Jno. O. Wal lace, Ezekiel O. Hawkins, PaulX. Hoe filch and G. W. Evans. The Grand Lodge of Kentucky woo officered' fiB follows at that time : Wrd. S. Wolford-M. W. P. Q. M. Thos. J. Harrlon-R. W. D. Q. M. John Fonda-R. W. O. W. A. W. R. Harrls-R. W. Q. 8. Ckas. T. Blaok-R. W. Q. T. May 5th, 1846, Ringgold Lodge No. 27 was organized , with the,following charter mornbeW, James. Rice, S. R.. Poj-nti, Wm. P. Con well, E. Dimmitt, L. J. Frazee, Wm. McOIanahani J. Taylor, Nf D fiun tor, J. T. Young, F. M. Weedon, Jas. A. Johnson, J. Brosee, R. O. Fant, B, Davis and W. H. McGranaghan. Its charter Is 'signed by the following, who were ofllcors pf the' Grand Lodge in this State at the time; A. K, MarihallrM. W.G. M. Jolin Fonda-R. W.D. Q. M. . ' Gpo. Ulanohard-B. Vf. Q. W. P, M, Jonos-R. W. G. S. John Irvlne-R. W. G. T. These two lodges havo prospered in a wondorful mannor. For years alter they were first organized their moetings woro hold in a room on the oast side of Sutton street, botweon Front and Second. After wards thoy moved to a room on the op posite side of that street, and then to 'Cooper's Hall, now 'occupied by tho Knights of Pythias.. These latter quar ters were, fitted up especially for them, and woro occupied until 1878, when they moved into the magnificent Oddfellows' Hall, their present quarters, which was dedicated that year. D&Knlb now has a membership of one hundred, and forty, and Ringgold about ninety, tho roll of the two embracing tho narnCB of a large number of the leading citizens pf this city. The order is ateiul ily4growing, and becoming stronger year aftor year. ', 'F. H. Traxol is tbo present Noblo Grand of DeKalb, and W. C. Miner is the Vice Grand. In Ringgold these two offices are filled by George Schwartz and W. B.-Pecor, respectively. , Financially as well aa otherwise tho OddfollowB aro the strongest secret soci ety in the city. They own tho magnifi cent three-story stone-front hall on Sec ond street, the ground on which Heiser'a European Hotel stands end a house and lot on Market street. Their real estate and other property is estimated at about $50,000, and this has all been accumu lated, notwithstanding that tho two lodges have been, and still are, continually giv ing relief in money and otherwise to their sick and distressed members. In addition to tho two lodges hero, thero are the Encampment and tho Can ton, each representing higher degrees of the order. Pisgah Encampment No. 9 was char tered May 8th, 1840, with only about fif teen or twenty members. It now has about one hundred and thirty, and it is in good fix financially. R. A. Carr is the present Chief Patriarch, and Hamer Stallcup the High Priest. Canton Maysvillo No. 2 is the young est division of the order hero. It was chartered December 31, 1885, with forty four members, and has added several to its roll. Jacob Miller is tho present Cap tain, with John C. Adamson Lieutenant. The cardinal principle of the Patriarch's Militant is universal justice. Tho exercises last evening in citnmem oration of the sixty-eighth anniversiry of the order in this country took place in Oddfellows' Hall. The invitations were limited to members of the order and their families, but those without families wero permitted to invite some of their friends. Seating capacity had been pro vided for about, five hundred, but, owing to the rain, many were kept away, and thero was ampte room for all. Tlie hall was comfortably filled, and all pnssed a most pleasant evening. The exercises wero of a literary and musical nature, consisting of addresses, sandwiched be tween choice selections of music ren dered by the Maysville Orchestra. The speakers wero limited to seven minutes each, but in that timo the cardinal prin ciples of the order were discussed in an interesting mannor. Hon. R. A. Cochran presided, sup ported on the right by Dr. John P. Phister, Grand Representative to the Sovereign Grand Lodge, and on the loft by W. H. Cox, Special District Deputy. Tho following is the programme as ren dered : Music Prayer .i Captain Jacob Mlllor Music. r Address" Friendship "- Thomas A.Davls Music. Address-" Love" ..Thomas R. Phister Music. Addrdw-" Truth ".
