Officers and members of the Grand LoJgc will accompany the parade and review on the march. As to the origin of this order, the following will be round or peculiar interest at this time,: This older was rounded February 10,1804, at Washington, D- C, by Justus II. Rath-bone. At a time when "war was in the hcirt or man and sorrow was in bis home;" whfc lean to oc;an, from gulf to gui irious laud was engaged in hiage and death, Justus II.

On behalf of the citizens or Wichita the Daily Eagle extends a hearty welcome to all visiting Knights, and hopes that their stay in this city as our honored guests may prove botiuprofitabla and enjoyable. It is expected that over 1000 Knights and ladies will be in the city during the session of the Grand lodge. A special train from Frcdonia arrived last evening bringing 23 members of Frcdonia lodge and two ladies, and the Co'ura-bus division. Fifty members or Tancard division No. n tin.l Vvttlp division Vn. 9 of Girard. and tcniatliep. arriving in the city last eve ning. The Golden cross of Atchison is expected to arrive to-day. The Newton cornet band is expected here to compete for the Jpriaes, as is also the K. T. band of Emporia. :robbed.x The residence of Mr. Z. Tuttle iu the north part of the city, was broken into yesterday aficrnoon while the liinily were absent, and closets and drawers broken onen. and the con tents ecittcred about the floor. Nothing was taken except fifteen dollars iu money, the jewelry being even left on the floor. Mr. T. has the hanger-on -theives of the snide circus to thank for the felony, of course. Mr. Drokaw has determined to sell out his business here and return to his old home. He desires us to return his heartfelt thanks to all those friends who, in the hours of his deeie-t afllic-tion, extended their aid aud sympathy. He has sold his beautiful residence iu the upper part of the city to Mr. II. L. Peck. Col. Martin Adams, father-in-law of Col. Fonts, iu company with the latter gentleman, called upon us the other day. Col. M. is almost a centenarian, having been born in 1797. He served iu the war of 1812. His home is iiLClark county, Indiana, and barring a slight lameness, ho looks as hale and hearty as many men do at sixty. Mr. E. Phillips sold his highly-cultivated forty-acre tract on the banks of the Little Hiver, adjoining the old fair grounds, last week for the sum of $4,750. Mr. P. informs us that he 1ms purchased a desirable tract of two hundred acres near the I own of Greenwich, in Payne township, which he will immediately take possession of aud improve. A gentleman from Detroit, Michigan, mi expert in the manufacture of gas, and who owns a patent process, is hereto arrauge the works of th!- oity, whereby he proposes to double the lllumiuary power of theprcsent article, thereby insuring a great saving to the consumers. Mr. Ed. B. Porter, son of Governor Porter, of Indiana, who.iSpcnt last week in our city, made many friends when here, it seems. Mr. P. is a chip off the old block, keen, witty, wide awake, and knowing a good town and country when he sees them. Wc understand that the lumber is now on the road for Jioberl Black's new business block, to be erected on the corner of Douglas and Topeka avenues. The building will be three stories with a 100 foot front. Miss Alice Murdock and Miss llas-sett, of 1 Dorado, are visiting relatives and friendf, in t lie city; coming over on the extra train 1 it evening which brought in two divisions of Knights of Pvthias. Some ten couple of young people of tliis city indulged in a boat ride on the Lit tie Arkansas Monday evening. The new boat was pronounced a great success, and the occasion proved oue of much enjoyment to all. Ifev. Win. Campbell, of Kankakee, Illinois, brother-in-law to Professor I Hammond, is looking this county over with n view to locating here with his family. The reverend gentleman is highly pleased so tar as lie lias seen. itaooi isenson, in eminent light of the Israelitish faith, will be in Wichita within a short time and deliver a free lecture at the Presbyterian church, on the "religion of our age,'" which in fact is a reply to Ingersollism. A large number of strangers are visiting Wichita this sea-on with a view of locating in south west Kansas, and the accommodations of our hotels arc taxed to the utmost limit.

The Cause of the Panic Last Week. Ingalls and Plumb of Kansas Favoring Arthur. HOUSE. Washington, May PL Oa motion of Mr. Randall the House proceeded tor consider the appropriation bills. Mr. Cannon moved to re-commit the consular and diplomatic' appropriation ' bill, with instructions that the committee on appropriations report back tbc bill covering appropriations similar to those for the current year, with certain specific excep- tlnn. I.naf Vpsa Kir mvs. 1.16 rr.. , in .1 . !--.. .... n,l n-t.ett.l The bill was then taken up and passed. Yeas, 129; nays, 85. ".' .VJ. w-., , rf-f The army andDistnetofColumblaappro- nriation bills nasscd without opposition Holman and Moulton opposed the bill. Collins said he was not to be deterred from hii adversity to the bill by any suggestion as to the Imminent presidential election, let it come with all the issues that might be invented. He did not believe that the passage of the bankruptcy act would militate against the interest of bis party. Motion lost. Yeas 107, nays 113., 'ot necessiry for a two-thirds vote in affirmation. Hanking and currency committee was next on the list, and Wilkens was ready with a resolution fixing a day for the con sideratibn or the Mel'herson bill, but motion to adjourn was interjected and carried. Mr. Coltlngs from the jtfdicla! committee moved to suspend the rules and adopt resolutions making the senate bankrupt bill the special order for "Tuesday June 10th. 3Iotion accorded. 100, to GO. Mr. Culbertson. or Texas favored the mot on. With this through the bankruptcy bill should not be present until the presidential election is over. A bankrupt law is demoralizingand promotive ordesponendcy. At this very time Wall street was in a mael-storm or speculation and great names were resting under a shadow of disgrace on account of that speculation. Congress should not encourage this by the passage of a bankrupt law, which would operate as an injustice to public morals, and would work ruin to thousands of widows and orphans. SENATE. Washington, May 19. Morrill modified his motion by mowug reference of the resolution to the Finance Committee. Bayard supported the motion. Sherman supported reference. Tho senate ougbt, be said, be very carelul in questions of this kind. He had been in N'ew York the day when the trouble referred to occurred, and be could assure the senate that although there might be trouble here and there over tbc certification checks, yet there had not been trouble at all. Iu the present -case the trouble was caused by spcculativ u operation of officers orthc banks affected, and In some cases not by certifying the checks but rather by non-certltiea-tion. The proper remedy would be to prescribe severe penalties against any dealings in speculative transactions by officers of the bank, or using money of the bauk in transactions that such officers might engage iu. Sherman saw no special uc in committee investigation in .New York. We had government officers there who could give u all ueeded information. If a committee were to go there to make a commotion and keep up an agitation regardingthe failures, it might embarrasj us in this call. There had been no panic. If the people of New York had not been alarmed the securities specially effected would havo been those involved in the transactions exposed by the failure, but confidence in the standard securities of tbc country had not suffered. It was like cases in New York City not extending over any other part of the country. It had resujtcd in clearing tho atmosphere, and he believed the present commercial position was iietter than it had been before the recent trouble. MISSOURI CROPS. Kansas Cily, Mo.
