WASHINGTON, Aug. 28.—Convention hall, the largest association hall in Washington, was brilliant with banners and the evening costumes of hundreds of ladies during the reception given Monday evening to the supreme lodge of the Knights of Pythias by the city and the district commissioner. Just as the scarlet coated Marine band struck up a march, "The Great Republic," composed for the occasion by its leader, Professor Fanucilli, Vice President Stevenson walked down the aisle escorted by Mra. Richard Goodhart and followed by tbe officers, who took seats on tbe stage. Chairman Goodhart introduced John W. Ross, commander of the District of Columbia, whose remarks were in harmony with the spirit of the occasion, dwelling upon tbe establishment of tbe order in Washington. Mr. Ross presented W«? President Stevenson, who was warm I- applauded before he could speak. He *aid: "The pleasing duty is assigned me to extend to the representatives of the order of the Knights of Pythias a welcome to tbe nation's capital. I may be pardoned for detaining you for a • moment before this formal welcome is extended. Your committee did well in selecting the city of Washington as tbe place for this great convention. In tbis selection yen have honored yourselves as well as the great city in which you are assembled. This is no ordinary gathering. It is literally the coming together of honored representatives of a great -brotherhood from every state and section of the An'-ncan Union. It is indeed an honor to t.iy city to claim as its guests the knightliest representatives of an order whose membership falls little short of half a million; whose living faith—the beautiful legend of Damon and Pythias —whose shibboleth 'Friendship, Benevolence and Charity' and 'the greatest of these is charity,' Not a Member of the Order, "As it is not my good fortune to be a member of this great fraternity, I cannot know to whom future ages will do honor as its founders, bat that he builded wiser than ho knew is evidenced by the fact that what our eyes now behold is the growth of leas tbnn a third of a century. I trust I divulge no secrets which would bring upon my pour head the dread penalty—when 1 say I have heard that each regular assemblage of the Knights of Pythias, the official inquiry is made, 'Does anyone know of a sick brother, or of a brother's family in distress?' If this be true, then even the wayfaring man may know whence came the inspiration that formulated the ritual and founded the order. I cannot but believe that m illustrating in deeds tbe sublime tenete of its order, your inspiration is that of the new commandment, 'Ye love one another,' I repeat, you did well to select for your biennial convocation the national capital, tho city that boars the honored name of the father of his country. "Coming from and representing every •tuto, it is meet that your assembling be at tlie political couter of this great nation. It matters not whether your abiding place be on,the great chain of lakes, or where rolls the Oregon, yon owe allegiance to but one flag; you are citizens of a common country. In your beautl ful ritual there is no place for aught that savors of sectionalism or of strife. Whatever troublous times tbe rolling years may bring to the state, wbo can doubt (hat the knightly men of this great brotherhood will stand as adamant for the preservation and perpetuation of all that is bt»t in our civilization—of all it Una cent oonturlw* of tiresome endeavor to ucuiovo. UepreBuutlug uvery portion of the republic, every vocation and call ing in life, it is yours to bind by yet •trougor chords every section and ututo into 0110 indivisible, indestructible union. "And now it but remain* to welcome you, Kuigfat*) of Pythiai, to Washingt I cordially bid you welcome to tbe most beautiful city in tbe world, Here U the symbol of the authority, the grauduor, tho power of tho greatest governiuuni known to inuu. .You will tiud it indued no mean, city. You are not strangers but fellow citizens. It is your capital and you are welcome to your father's house. Your arrival is timely. Congress has adjourned and the right of way is yours. The public buildings are open to you. Upon every lintel is . the grateful welcome. Upon your long line of march a thousand times your (heart will be made glad by the cheering words floating on streamers from mansion and mart. Welcome, thrice welcome, Knights of Pythias." Supreme Chancellor W. W. Blackwell, who was to have tesponded, refrained from speaking on account of the death of his predecessor in office. Congressman Shaw of Wisconsin. Congressman M. C. Conn of Indiana, a member of the fraternity, gave the address of welcome on behalf of the knights of Washington, incidentally paying a tribute to the late Chancellor Shaw, whose untimely death, he said, had changed'the rejoicing into mourning. The influence of fraternal brotherhoods, he prophesied, would eventually solve difficulties between governments and put an end to war. The program was closed by a stirring march by' the Marine band, "The Pythian Encampment," composed by Mr. D. B. McLco£ of Washington.
