"Illinois KnighUUIke to gather In Rock Island and that ls the rea son that we are having the largest and best conclave in the history of the grand commandery," remarked Grand Commander Louis L. Em merson today after seeing com mandery after commandery arrive in the city last evening and early this morning. "This city made a great name for Itself when it last entertained the grand command ery in 1908 and the Knights haven't forgotten how they enjoyed themselves hero at that time." The last conclave held in Rock Island opened on Oct 13. 1908. Contrasted with the 4,000 who were in line today only 1,500 marched in the grand street parade at that tome. That accommoda tions were taxed as well then as now even though the number of visitors was much smaller, " Is shown by the fact that many Knights had to be quartered in sleeping cars in the railroad yards just as is being done today. ; Delegations Largrr. ' ' The Montjoie, Siloam, Knglewood and Temple commanderies had not, many more than 60 representatives here in 1908, while this year each has more than one hundred. According to the files of The Argus, Colonel W. T. Channon was commander of the parade by ap pointment of H. H. Cleaveland, grand captain general. Mr. Cleave land was grand marshal of the pa rade today and Colonel Channon was marshal of the first division. . In 1908 the grand ball which closed the conclave was held In the rink on Sixteenth street which was torn down but a short time ago. The following local officers were among those active at the time ot the 1908 meeting: David J. Sears, commander; Charles Schneider, S. J. Ferguson, H. A. Clevenstlne, M, S. Heagy, C. W.
