The Knights Templar of Oregon, who are now members of the Dixon Commandery, are desirous of establishing a new Commandery in that 'city, and have made application for it, and they propose to comprise in it part of each of the Dixon and Freeport Com- manderies. It is quite likely that it will not be established however, as' the Knights Templar of Dixon object, • pa the ground that it would take away too much of the Dixon Commandery's territory. .The Freeport Commandery has given consent, but it is necessary to obtain permission from' Dixon. Each Commandery Is under the general supervision pf the Grand' Com- mandery of-the State. -No definite action has been taken in regard to the matter yet, but it is likely that it wtyl, be within a few days. When it is decided, the decision will more than likely be adverse to the Oregon Knights Templar, ^ , ......
