ON MASONRY IN DAILY LIFE
Thine at the St John's Lodtte is Annual
ThutkBgiring Symposium.
HOW FRATERNITY FiTS INTO BUSINESS
Km from Various Calling Kxprcns
Themselves an the General Toplo
and All Agree, on the
Outcome,
The members of St. John's lodge, No. 23,
observed Thanksgiving day momorably by a
symposium In which Masons ot all degrees
participated, Tho templo was open dur
ing tho evening to a host of Invited guc3ts
who assembled In responno to tho annual
Thanksgiving communication. Most of them
wore members of other lodges and chapters.
The cntortalnmcnt differed from tho cus
tomary program only In respect of ex
cellence, tho banquet being more elaborate
than usual and tho Intellectual session being
marked by talks of oven more lively Inter
est and music ot surpassing charm.
At the outset thcro was a reception In
tho drawing room to cnablo tho unac
quainted to meet on tho common ground of
friendship tho lodge officers officiating as
a reception committee. Immediately after
wards the company was ushered Into tho
commandery hall for the musical selections
and tho talks that preceded the banquet.
Charles 8. Loblngler, who presided, stated
tho general topic, "Masonry, as Viewed
from tho Various Walks and Callings In
Life," saying that tho subjects talked about
would be but phases of this theme. He
aid that as everything begins with the
schoolmaster, ho thought It fitting to make
no exception to tho rulo, and so had asked
l'rof. Carroll 0. I'carro of Cnpltul lodge
No. 3, to Bay a few words by way of be
ginning. How It Helps a I'ciIiikokiif.
Among othor things Prof, Pcarao, whoso
subject wbb "Tho Schoolmaster In Mn
onry," said: "As a schoolmaster It Is ex
pected of mo to say why It Is beneficial to
be a Mason. You know that things have
come to be managed In such a way that a
large proportion of the Instructors In the
schools arc women. Now, It Is not wholly
good for a man to havo all bis business
relations with women and children alone,
In other words, with those to whom ho must
dt for for reasons of sex or age. Man needs
to strlvo with other men. neuds to bo thrown

who falls to gauge his capacity In this way
falls to make tho most of his ability. Men
aecd to bo Masons to get best the shoulder-
to-shoulder contact with other men that
rounds out the character to Its fullest ex-
tent."
Judse W. W. Kevsor discussed "Tho Law-
yor In Masonry." Ho said:
"Thero Is no placo whero you will not
find a lawyer, excepting In that spot which
Dante, tells nbout in tho 'Dlvlno Comedy.'
Among other things I am grateful for to
day Is the fact that I am a lawyer. Thero
Is no profosBlon In 1 lfo but what those In
It somotlmo require legal advlco. Although
It may be as Walter Scott oneo said, the
legal profession Is the chimney through
which the soot of society goes, nevertheless esieraay alter a years Illness of corn
It Is a necessity. A good lawyer cannot Plicated diseases. The deceased catno here

If It Is true that lawvers oucht to be nroud

crafts. The mechanic who turnn out a

the lawyer comes up hero to these lodge
meetings tho argument and contention of
tho day's work ceases. We all meot here

Where the Preucher Coined In,
Ho v. Luther M. Kuhns took for his sub
Ject, "The Minister In Masonry." An cx-
corpt of his address Is:

The moral law Is to bo carried to the re
motest lands and latest times. Here than
are tho things In which a minister can bo
llovo and for which ho can stand. Tho
charity exorcised toward the poor is
Christlike. Masonry is a beneficent In
stitution for tho amelioration of humanity
and tha Inculcation of morality."
Tho othera who contributed to tho In
tellectual entertalnmont are; Dr. B. D.
navls, who discussed "Tho Physician In
Masonry," and Simon Goctz, who talked
about "Tho Business Man In Masonry." In-
terspersed throughout the program were
musical soloctions by tho Madrigal club and
Bolos by tho Individual membors. Mrs.
Kolly's soprano solo. "The Silent Wnrlil In

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. Tho houso com
mittee on mllltnry n flairs tonight made
public a leter received from Secretary Root,
under date of tho 23th Inst., transmitting
a draft of a bill prepared by the War de
partment for tho reorganization of tho
army. Tho letter says that tho army, as
at present organized under the present law,
will ceaso to exist ou July 1, 1901, and
thereafter will consist of a total enlisted
strength of 29,025 men. Without further
legislation, ho says, tho volunteers now In
service must bo dlochargcd July 1, 1901,
and tho regular army reduced from 63,000
to 29,025 men. Continuing tho letter says:
"Without leaving much, If any, margin
for Btckness, such as tho campaigns of tho
last two years warn us must bo counted
au nu Importunt factor In any occupation
by tho tinny, peaceful or warlike, of many
of the Islands which constltuto the Phil
lppiuu group, tho strength thus fixed must
prove utterly Inadequate, leaving out of
consideration tho sorvlco In the United
Stntes, ,lu Porto Rico and, for tho time
being, In tho Island of Cuba.
Show of Force In Needed.
"Tho nrmy Is confronted with many se
rious problems, tho solution ot which de
mands not only Intelligence and wisdom,
but a showing of well-organized force in
tho now pcsscsslons. Tho history of our
Indian wars Is replete with Incidents show
lng tho futility of sending nu Inadequate
forco to bring Into subjection hosttlo na-
tives such aB those occupying tho Philip-
plno Islands, It Is presumed under theso
conditions that congress will provide a
suuicient number or men to caro for tho
coast defenso fortifications, to provldo gar-
rlsons for the moro or less permanent posts
un tho Canadian and Mexican borders nnd
tnoso scattered through the Indian coun-
try, smnll garrisons in Porto Rico and
Cuba and a sufficient forco In tho Philip-
plno Islands to restoro order and cstnb-
llsh peaceful nnd stable conditions of gov-
crnmcnt.
"in tne preparation of tho present bill
tho minimum number of men Is fixed for
each 'organization, with a proviso that tho
picsldent mny In his discretion, enlist tho
ni mber of enlisted men In any troop, bat-
tf.ry or company, provided that tho total
number of enlisted men authorized for the
nrmy by congress shall not at any time
bo exceeded. Ry the adoption of this plan
tho absoluto fixed strength of the regular
army can bo shown nt a glance, and any
Increase of numbers nbovo tho minimum
will bo limited by such authority ns mny
bo conveyed from tlmo to tlmo by congress.
The peace strength of each troop, battery
nnd company Is fixed In this bill as now
authorized by existing law. Tho number of
reglmen'.H has been Incrcasod by five of I
cavalry, five of Infantry, numbers which
would correspond to five regiments of nrtll-
lery nnd two battalions of engineers. As
tlie Increase In tho artillery Is Intended for
tho scacoa8t defenses, tho only InoreaBf of
tbo regular army for field service will bs
ten additional regiments of cavalry and In-
fnntry nnd tho two battalions of engineers,
Authority Is asked In this bill to rnlso a
provisional forco ot natives In tho Island
of Porto Rico nnd nlso In tho Philippine
Islands. Tho organization of the native
Hoops tn tho Philippine Islands will, under
tho peculiar conditions existing there, bo

"The necessity for returning them home

cost of a forco of tho same strength en
listed for three years sorvlce, and tho

will be more economical to obtain the
Increased strength of the army required

"For short terms of service and durlug
war, when large numbers of men are re
quired, the country must always rely, as it
has dono in tho past, upon the volunteer
soldier, but the conditions now confront
ing tho department demand that It shall
havo at hand a sufficient number of reg
ular regiments to furnish tho garrisons

sufficient to enable the department to re

that tt will bo next to Impossible to con

Charles tho Bold, tho rash and romantic
duke of Uurgundy, Is tho figure about which
Kirk La Shollo has woven a somewhat
tenuous tulo of lovo, wnr and Intrlcun,
Tho story comes most wlnsomely nnd with
exquisite finish, however, from tho Hps of
Miss .Margucrltn Sylva nnd a band of merry
liegemen. None nro able to follow whero
Bhc lcadu, however, except bor faithful
stewnrd, who passes undlemaycd through
many quaint disguises each succeeding. In
cldcntally, In setting forth tho physical
chnrms of the Princess Chic to excellent
ndvantnge,
Tho opera Is put on In thn manner of the
day with a prodigality of scenic elothluir.
unly two views are presented, tho court
yard and grand hall of n Durgundlan chn-
teau, but upun these good artists havo ox-
ptndcd their best effort. Tho stage ar-
rangomcnt Is remindful of other recent pro-
ductions, notably tho "Singing Girl." Just
as a similar levy seems to huvo been mado
In tho choice of Jests. In the setting bril
llnnco of color blended Bhado to shado had
been rarely conceived as a treat to tho eye.
To this effect Is added tho gleam of steel
and tho flutter of skirts dyed with gaudy
ncmonts
Julian Edward has furnished n bountiful
supply of melodies which linger In tho
memory, the most choice of tho lyrics fall
lng to tho sharo of Miss Sylva, Tho llbrot-
tlst has sot tho most quaint and dainty
fancies to tho airs and altogether tho opera
has conspicuous merit as a musical com
position. Miss Sylva appears In throo cos-
tumes, two of them disguises, nnd to tho
best advantago In the simplest one that of
tho peasant. Her vo'leo Is puro and clear
wltn yet a quality and richness in It fun
of promise for the singor's future. Tho
song which found most favor was "Tno
Wood Nymph nnd tho.Rivcr God," a lyric
or superior merit. As'tne -princess cine, a
whimsical young personal, who appears nt
almost nny tlmo In any garb sho wins the
lovo of Charles tne uoia. ho stoops to
offer his hand nnd holdings to a supposed
pensant girl and Is accented after many
happenings by tho princess In her true per
son despite tho fact that history pelslsts
in awarding him to the sister ot tho Eng

Politicians of nil kinds, colors nnd de
scriptions wero engaged yesterday In talk
ing charter lovlston. Thero Is to bo a mass
mooting tonight for tho purposo of tnlklng
over tho needs ot tho city, nnd whllo tho
regularly appointed, committees do not coun
tenance tho meeting it will doubtless be
hold. Somo of tho taxpayers assert that
they will not trust tho revision of tho
charter to tho commltteo appointed by tho
council nor tho aggregation composing tbo
Commercial club committee. Fault is
found with both of these committees, tho
statement being mndo that selfish ends are
Involved In both cases.
In enso tho mass meeting tonight pans
out and a commltteo to draft a charter Is
appointed there will then bo threo charter
committees In tho field nnd It will be a
question which will bo accepted. On ono
point all those who nre Interested aro as a
unit, and that Is tho naming of a tax
commissioner. It Is asserted thnt tho as
Besaments mnde hero are not right and
that If a commissioner Is appointed who
la paid a good salnry tho property in every
ward will be assessed In accordance with
law.
There Is somo llttlo hitch between tho
committee appointed by tho Commercial club
and that named by the council for tho
renson that tho club Ignored the city offi
cials entirely, whllo on tho other hand tho
council commltteo Is composed of two well
known representatives of labor organiza
tions. If tho mass meeting called for to
night develops and n commltteo Is appointed
It Is probablo that negotiations will be
mado for a Joint meeting of tho threo
committees In order that time, labor and
expense mny bo feaved nnd tho Bamo re
sults arrived nt as If each commltteo
worked separately.
