18, to assenilde about the banquet
board for a feast of reason and flow
of soul. Last evening a pleasant in
novation was made by the Sir Knights
of inviting their ladies to participate
in these festivities, and the represen
tatives of the gentler sex. together
with representatives of each of the
daily newspapers, constituted the
only persons outside of the tin er so

From U o'clock in the afternoon
until 9 in the evening the comr land
ery was busily engaged with work
in the Red Cross degree. Ten can

stages of Knighthood, the eercn onies
being distinguished by the presence
of NirJKnight William Jenki is, of
Mendota. grand standard beaier of
the grand commandery of Illinois,
who reviewed Kvcrts commandery.
Considerably before the work in
the temple had concluded, the fuests
began to arrive and assemble i i the
parlors, ami it was shortly alter 9
when the doors of the temple were
thrown open and the procession
formed for the banquet hall. Three
tables were set in the main ining
hall, while a long table was also
spread in the parlor adjoining.

After an hour had been happily
passed, during which the foregoing
was subjected to discussion of a
highly complimentary nature. Sov
ereign Commander Keator in a gal
lant and graceful speech introduced
Grand Standard Bearer Jeukin. who
in responding in behalf of the grand
commander extended his thanks for
the greeting that had been tendered
him. He spoke of the pleasant inno
vation of having ladies present on
such an occasion. He was pleased
with the idea and hoped it would be
extended. He prophesied that the
time would come when the ladies
would have more to do with Masonry
than they now have, a circumstance
that would be beneficial to the order
and to the ladies. He alluded I riefly
to the erroneous impressions
that had gone abroad
in relation to the myfiteries of tae or
der. The predominating secret of
the order could be told in si few
words Truth is Mighty and Will
Prevail. Wherever a red cros altar
is erected men kneel to lean the
truth. There the truth is taught.
He sK)ke of the beautiful and im
pressive forms of the ceremony,
which are but the outer covering of
the forces which for 0,000 years have
been battling for the truth. The
Mason is ever trying to work upward
and onward to that which must event
ually prevail truth. He strives to
conform to the laws of eternal right
to so direct his lite that he shall be
one with the growing corn at d the
falling rain. Templar Masonry was
but hastening the time when that
which we all pray for shall come
when truth shall fulfill the prophecy
and possess the world.
Past Commander Tremlin, of Ot
tawa commandery, was then intro
duced and spoke pleasantly o; the
pleasure he felt at being present.
Alluding to the proper concept on of
the grandeurof theorderof Maeonry,
he said that within its lines all stood
equal in the highest light. He spoke
of the elevating tendency of the
Templarhood. It is the acme of
regularly accredited Masonry, and
treated of its traditions and precepts,
congratulatingthe local cammandery
on the manner in which the Red
Cross degree had been conferred; he
had never seen it done in so masterly
and classical a manner. In conclu
sion he joined in the sentiment ap
preciative in the presence of the
ladies, and expressed the belief that
if the ladies could see the rituals of
the order exemplified they would
have less imagination and more
knowledge as to tho orders teachings.
Sir Knight Virgil M. Blanding, the
first commander of Everts eomman
der'v, spoke briefly of the history
of the local commandery, from its or
ganization in l!5t)G, w hen 1 members
were enlisted, and of its growtli to
the attainment of its present prosper
ous condition, lie touched on the
virtues of Masonry, its teachings of
truth, justice and morality, of hope,
faith and charity, and its sacred pre-
Sir Knight Koodhouse, of Uales
burg, responded pleasantly to an in
vitation to speak. Sir Knight C. W.
Durham made one of his characteris
tically h timorous speeches, Sir Knight
H. C. Cleaveland spoke impressively
of Knighthood, and this concluding
the festivities about the ban
quet board, the company re

W. II. Judge, whose resignation as
secretary and superintendent of the
Rock Island (las works was recently
accepted reluctantly bv the Brush
company of Cleveland, the present
owners oT the plant, has received a
very complimentary and favorable
offer to manage another and larger
gas company, and will undoubtedly
accept it. The Brush company owns
and controls a number ol electric
light and gas companies, and it
knows a good man when it finds one,
and it is its policy not to make any
changes in the management of the
companies it purchases unless abso
lutelv necessary. At a recent meet
ing of the board of directors, B. E
Sunnv, of Chicago, the western mail'
ager of the General Electric com pan v
of Boston, which is very closely con
nected with the Brush hi ec trie com
panv, was elected a director and sec
retary, and K. it. Macaiunan, the
present manager of the Brush Elec
tric light station, was elected to the
position of treasurer and superin
tendent, the hooks ol the two com
panics will be kept separate, but
their general offices will be in the
office of the gas company, with Mr.
MacMullan in charge.
The gas company, under its char
ter, caunot operate an electric light
plant; neither can the electric light
company operate the gas plant, so
that a new corporation, larger and
stronger, will undoubtedly be
Mr. MacMullan has just ordered
from Cleveland 100 new double and
single arc lamps of the most modern
make, in exchange for the old Brush
lamps which have been used in Rock
Island for a number of years. The
new Brush lamp is most modern of
all arc lamps and is not equaled by
any on the market. The lights of the
Brush company, although greatly im
proved of late," will now be for supe

experience that made ins mission
happier than he had anticipated. Mr,
White had not corresponded regular

rival in New lork Citv at the num

found that the man who was so seri
ously ill was not his brother at all
but a man bv the same name of
Thomas White. Mr. White's brother
had left that number last December
but another man by the same name
had located there and had been re

he boarded found the letters in ' his

Within an hour after he had discov

well and hearty, which compensated
