manderies. The narade of tbe Knights Templar yes
terday in Washington was a brilliant dis
play, and the day was exactly suitable for
it Pittsburg Commandery carried off a
large share of the honors.
"Washington, October a A more per
fect day for the occasion could not have been
made if it had been made to order, than
this day of the great Knights Templar
parade. It was just cool enough to take
the Knights oyer the several miles of the
route without perspiration, and for the more
portly of them there was a gentle breeze that
fanned and encouraged them without rais
ing the dust It was undoubtedly the finest
parade, though not the largest, that "Wash
ington has ever seen, with its over 20,000
Knights in gorgeous regalia and waving
plumes, and the hundred musical bands in
magnificent costumes. In all this, the
Pennsylvanians have a prominent part,
having more Knights in line than any other
State, and of Pennsylvania, Allegheny
county did really more than its share in
contributing to the great display.
The Pittsbutg Commandery, with 128
men in line, claim to have made a more
numerous showing than any other Com
mandery, except the "Washington, of this
city, which, being at home, was ont in lull
force. All of the Allegheny county Com-
manderies made a fine exhibition in their
evolutions, and were frequently and heartily

of Allegheny Commandery are George C.
Johnston, E. O.; W. R. Heckert, C. G.; James
E. Porter, E.; W. H. Walker, a W.; Andrew
Williams and Edward Coates, P. C.
Most of the married gentlemen in all of
tbe oommauderies are accompanied by their
wives. Tancred had a few more than 100
men in line, Allegheny about the same
number, and Pittsburg 128. The com
manderies and guests number about S00
persons. The fact that all of the com
maderies brought a larger number than was
expected has cansed a deal of inconvenience,
notably in the case of Tancred, which stops
at "Willard's Hotel. There acco mmodations
for only 100 persons were engaged, and to
put 175 into the space intended for 100 has
led to much grumbling, both on the part of
tbe hotel people and members of Tancred.
Soaie of the ladies had their tempers sorely
tried, but altogether the situation was taken
philosophically, and this evening at the
commandery headquarters, which are beau
tifully decorated, good cheer is being dis
pensed unsparingly.
One of the officers of the commandery
states that the proprietorof "Willard's offered
them 500 to relinquish their bargain with
him, as be could have let the rooms occu
pied at much higher figures than the 4 50 a
day charged. The Pittsburg Commandery
is pleasantly located at the new Hotel John
son, and, in private rooms near by, Alle
gheny Commandery have elegant and quiet
quarters at the Irvington flats, on K strtet;
they have taken the place entire.
This evening Pittsburg Commandery gave
a short exhibition drill on the street in front
of their hotel, and were much applauded.
They, and perhaps tbe other commanderies,
contemplate a trip to the Lnray caverns on
Thursday. The remainder of the week will
be taken up with receptions, river excur
sions and seeing the thousand novelties of
the national capital.
The city was profusely and gorgeously
decorated all along the route of the parade.
., The main body of the procession formed
"in the streets about the Capitol by 1130
o'clock and awaited the arrival of the offi
cers of the Grand Encampment with Gen
eral Charles Boome, Host Eminent Grand
Master, and his personal staff in carriages,
tinder escort of the First division. The
Knightly escort, with Eminent Sir Myron
M. Parker, Chief Marshal; Sir Knight
Harrison Dingman, Chief of Staff, and a
host of Sir Knights as aids-de-camp lead
ing, soon approached and halted on the spa
cious plaza at the east front of the Capitol.
A few moments later a word from Chief
Marshal Parker put the head of the column
of tbe grand parade and escort of the Grand
Encampment in motion.
At 1230 President Harrison entered the
reviewing stand leaning on the arm of Secre
tary "Windom. He was followed by Secre
taries Tracy, Noble and Busk, Attorney
General Miller, General Schofield and Gen
eral Vincent, Assistant Adjutant General.
They were accompanied by Mrs. Harrison,
Dr. Scott, Mrs. Scott-Lord, Mrs. Halford,
Miss Sanger and several Indiana friends.
The entrance of the Presidental party was
the signal for loud applause.
The parade moved in 12 divisions in the
following order:
First Local commanderies, Colonel W. C.
Moore, Commanded escorting officers and dele
gate to the Grand Encampment in carnages; :
llnnra up
detachment of Cccnr delieon Commandery, No.

and North Carolina.
Twelfth Vf. D.Stites. Commander; Canadian
preceptories and commanderies of Montana,
Dakota, Wyoming and Washington.
The last commandery passed the Presi
dental reviewing stand at 3:30 o'clock. The
procession went the remainder ol its long
line of march and was finally disbanded
about an hour later.
The Grand Encampment began its ses
sion immediately upon arriving at
Masonic Temple at the close of the parade.
Mr. Myron M, Parker delivered an address
of welcome on the part of the local com
mand, and introduced Commissioner Doug
lass, who welcomed the Knights on the
part of the city. To both addresses the
Grand Master responded, and this closed
the public exercises. The encampment then
began its business in secret conclave.
The Iowa trouble immediately loomed up
and a resolution was offered excluding the
members from that State from the session.
This resolution was carried and the
Iowa members somewhat indignantly
withdrew. General Boome, who, as
Grand Master of the order, had
declared the Iowa Commandery and its
members in rebellion, had nothing to do
with offering this resolution, but simply
placed it belore the convention. It is au
thoritatively stated to-night that he took so
side in th- matter during the discusssion of
the resolution. .
The annual address of Grand Master
Boome, who presided over the session was
then read. His address opened with a
reference to the Knightly dead during the
past three years. He recommended selecting
Ascension Day, as a day of especial com
memoration and religious services by the
order throughout the country. He then de
voted a great deal of space to the Iowa
trouble, reviewing the whole matter from
beginning to end. He said the Grand
Commandery of that State had
the deliberate will of tbe Grand Encamp
ment and though still professing loyalty to
the Grand Encampment and the constitu
tion, its deeds had belied its empty words.
He admitted that the ritual adopted by the
San Francisco Conclave in 1886 has not
commended itself to all State commander
ies, but insisted that while it wasin force it
was the bounden duty of Knights to obey it
He declared that he had no ill feeling for
bis erring Iowa brethren, and what be had
done bad been intended solely to promote
the dignity of the Order. Soon alter the
reading of General Boome's address the
conclave adjourned until to-morrow.
Although Iowa senta number of Knights
Templar to "Washington, none of them took
part in the parade to-day, as they were for
bidden to do so by the Grand Master,
who has placed them under a ban.
A lantern bicycle parade to-night of about
800 wheelmen closed tbe entertainment of
the day. The procession moved up the ave
nue into the "White House grounds, and
was reviewed by the. President-ifrom the
portico. This evening has been given up to
serenades and receptions; Music-loving
"Washington never heard so many bands at
one time. It is said that there were 83 bands
in the parade to-day, and all of them seem
to be blowing their bravest to-night. The
Golden Gate Commandery, of San Fran
cisco, have been the recipients of unusual
and marked attentions.
This evening a public reception was given
by Golden Gate Commandery. The ladies
and Knights all appeared in lull dress. The
reception rooms were thronged for several
hours and great numbers of persons enjoyed
the liberal open-handed hospitality of "the
Califormans. California Commandery, No.

Kokomo, lND., October 8. The citizens
of Jerome, a small town 14 miles cast of this

night, and took for the purpose the Diamond
Plate Gla-i well, just drilled there, and the
strongest well in the State. A60-fbot, 4-inch
pipe was laid from the well and to this was
attached a four-foot elbow vertically.
"When the torch was applied the end which

the CO feet of pipe among the spectators
with terrible force.
Most of the younger people in the crowd
were able to escape from the roaring flames
which burst from the pipe, but several were
caught Among these was Chusa "Warmon,

struck him full in the face, and he fell to

millionaire, whose death is supposed to have
been the work of burglar Tascott'a pistol.
At a meeting of the park board this aiter

New Yoke, October 8. Mrs. Michael
McDonald, wife of the famous Chicago
politician and sporting mac, who disap
peared from Chicago on July 24 last, at the
same time as the Bev. Father Joseph.Moy
sant, of Notre Dame Church, is at the Fifth
Avenue Hotel. She arrived on Saturday.on
the" steamship City of Chicago, traveling
under her maiden name, M. Noonan. Her
husband heard of her coming, and a private
detective was on the pier awaiting the
steamer, with a photograph to identify
Mrs. McDonald. He didn't recog
nize her. The detectives told the
steamship officers that Mrs. McDonald had
cabled to her husband that she was coming
home on that steamer and he is said to be
ready to receive her. The detective who
was looking for her told the purser that she
had sailed with the priest on the Nor
maudie, of the French line, and had gone
on board disguised as an elderly nun, with
spectacles and a gray wig.
Mrs. McDonatd talked in the hotel par
lor with great animation about what she
termed "the scandal." She denied em
phatically that she had eloped with the
priest She had left her home
in Chicago, she, said, because her
father-in-law made her borne life unhappy.
If the' priest disappeared the same day as
she did, she said, that was a mere co
incidence, for which she was not responsi
ble. She had not seen him, but she heard
that he was in a monastery near Paris. "I
am not going home to Chicago," she con
tinued. "I am going to stay here and work
for a living."
She was furious at the detectives that she
said had been dodging her about. She called
them "rats," and said that her husband
would gain nothing by keeping them at her
heels. "If he should send a gentleman to me
to bring me home, or should come himself,
why the matter might be adjusted. It sever
can be with detectives, though."
Tho Distinguished Statesman Not Likely to
Appear In Congress.
Philadelphia, October 8. Ex-Speaker
Samuel J. Randall is a very sick man, and
those who are fully advised of bis condition,
will be very much surprised if he ever re
sumes his seat in Congress. Neither Mr.
Bandall himself nor the members of his im
mediate family are fully aware of his con
dition. Mr. Bandall has for more than a
year been treated for internal hemorrhoids,
and reports are every now and then put out
to the affect that he is much better, but his
doctor knows that he will never be really
any better, and so do the members of the
medical profession in Philadelphia gener
ally, by whom the case of the distinguished
patient is closely watched and often dis
cussed. These encouraging reports are
given out for the salutary effect on the
spirits of the patient, which it is hoped they
may have.
Dr. Martin, "Mr. Band all's physician,
said to-day that he expects to accompany
Mr. Bandall to "Washington on Thursday
and had no doubt but that Mr. Bandall
could stand the strain. He did not say he
expects Mr. Bandall to recover.
It is hoped that the removal of Mr. Ban
dall to his own home in Washington from
the rented country place where he now is
may be temporarily beneficial and tend to
prolong his life.

who robbed Mrs. Susan Mulford's aud Mrs.
Mary J. Boss' houses here last week and

eral Boulanger crossed the channel in the
small hours of the morning through the tail
of a big storm, which for 48 hours past has
been devastating the British Islands. Tbe
sea was high and the General prostrate
throughout the voyage. His fair friend
fared far worse, for in addition to the ago
nies of seasickness she was thrown from her
berth with great violence and sustained an
ugly cut on the right eyebrow. The wound
was roughly dressed aboard.
General Boulanger was too ill to assist,
but he gave orders that when the vessel
touched at Guernsey a telegram should be
sent to Jersey for a surgeon to be "on hand
on their arrival. Then he retired to his
cabin and was seen no more nntil the
steamer was safely moored in St Hellers
harbor. The party put up at tbe Hotel
Pomme d'Or, but.were scarcely in a condi
tion to draw omens of good or evil from the
classical story about Paris and Helen and

concerned the application might have been
too personal. Dr. Chappins, who was in at
tendance at the hotel, put sticking plasters
upon the lady's eyebrow and prescribed a
tonic for General Boulanger.
A number of military looking French
men in mufti called at the hotel during the
day, ana this evening the General dined

Inventor Eiffel Proposes to Build Another
Tower for America's Benefit.
London, October 8. A well known Lon
don engineer, who was one of the 250 mem
bers of the Iron and Steel Institute who
were entertained in Pans last week by M.
Eiffel and the President 'of the French So
ciety of .Engineers, gives an interesting ac
count of a conversation he had with M.
Eiffel, in which that gentleman gave his
opinion of the feasibility of constructing a
tower of such dimensions as are proposed
ior tne one to oe coosirucieu on toe Bite 01
the New York "World's Exposition of 1892.
In this conversation M. Eiffel expressed his
unbounded confidence that tbe plan of the
Paris structure, with some slight modifica
tions which experience had suggested to
him. could be safelv adopted for a tower
twicoits heightaad tbawith this planjf'
towifrof any altifuaVdesTrea presented no
engineering difficulties whatever, but was
simply ajuestion of outlay.
It the American Exposition Committee
were ambitions to possess a tower of 1,500 or
2,000 feet high they had simply to pro
vide the funds and the structure would
spring from the ground in nine months
after the order was given. Of course
great care would have to be exercised in the
selection of a suitable site, as upon this
would very largely depend the stability of
the structure. "When questioned as to
whether he would have any professional
connection with the construction of the
proposed American tower, M. Eiffel said it
was too early yet to reach any definite un
derstanding, but he was already in com
munication on the subject with New York

sound of a voice at the paying teller's
window recalled vividly to his mind. the
voice of the man who had got the best of
him in December last Mr. Lawrence, who
is now receiving teller, looked up quickly
and recognized the young man as the very

He was locked up.
Ho Is Sentenced Fifteen Days, and Fined
8230 for Contempt of CourtHe
Will Serve Ont His
"Columbus, O., October 8. Allen O.
Myers, who was indicted, tried and
acquitted of complicity In the tally sheet
forgeries of 1885, occupies a ' cell
af the t county jail to-night, and
states he will serve out his sentence of 15
davs, which was imposed this afternoon, to
gether with a fine of ?250 for alleged con
tempt of court during the trial of Mont
gomery, who was indicted for the same of
fense. The contempt consisted of the publi
cation of an article in the Cincinnati En
jutrer reflecting upon the conduct of the
case by Judge Pugn. It also questioned
his motives in various rulings.
At the first hearing Myers was fined the
same amount and sentenced to Berve 90 days
in jail, and the case was taken to the Su
preme Court on error, with the result that
we higher court remanded the case for re
hearing on the ground substantially that
the sentence was severe. Therehearing was
had last Saturday and the sentence pro
nounced to-day. Myers refuses to allow his
lawyers to take any steps to get him ont on
a writ of habeas corpus, and it is understood
will do some writing while he is in jail.
"Were it not for the fact that it is un
popular to champion Myers' cause, even
among the rank and file of the Democracy,
there is no doubt that the action of tbe
Judge to-day would cut quite a figure in
the campaign, owing to the prominence of
the prisoner in connection with the Demo
cratic management. As it Is, however, the
effeot will be slight Myers discharged bis
attorneys and appeared in court alone, and
evidently was surprised that he got time.
After the decision he sent for an attorney
and was advised to serve the time, as it was
impossible to get the Circuit Court judges
together at this time to ant in an error case.
There are a great many Democrats, as
well as Republicans, who thought the ends
cf justice would have been served by the
imposing of the fine without the time sen
A Theatrical Manager Succeeds In Getting
Away With SS.OOO.
Philadelphia, October 8. Several of
the best-known men in Philadelphia are
anxiously looking for the return from across
the sea of a prominent theatrical man, with
"an accounting for several thousand dollars
each, with which they entrusted him some
months ago. Every theater-goer in Phila
delphia recalls the engagement of the Lon
Jnn Gaiety Company at the "Walnut Street
Theater last spring.
Among the steady patrons of the show was
iWiiliam H. Comly, a theatrical manager,
not without experience, and long identified
with James Barton Key in the manage
ment of the Comly-Barton Opera Company.
Comly saw the show, met the financial head
of the company and conceived the bright
idea ot purchasing the properties of the
company, scenery, costumes and score books
and repeating tne Gaiety successes in a
smaller way through the Eastern circuit
and the Western cities.
Mr. Comly set about organizing his syn
dicate at once. Eight thousand dollars, it
was stated, would be all that was required
to buy the costumes and stage properties
and furnish a working capital for the Amer
ican Gaiety Company. Of this. Horace
Disston contributed $3,000, ex-Governor
"William H. Bunn, of Idaho, a like amount,
and other members of the club testified
thefr confidence in tbe venture by smaller
amounts until the desired sum was com-
"3Ue moneys paldf
departed, presumably to buy the scenery
ana arrange tne date ot the show. Now
Mr. Comly cannot be found. It is said that
he is in Europe, and has gone there without
consulting any of the members of the com
pany. No contracts have been made as far
as can be ascertained. The members have
taken legal advice, and some scenery which
,was purchased was recovered in New York
and brought back to this city. In the mean
time Comly is badly wanted.

At thevLyceum Theater, New York, last
night, the leading comedian fell in a faint
as he left the stage at, the end of the first
act. He died in a few minutes. The occur

New Yoee, October 8. Charles B.
Bishop, a leading comedian in E. H. So th
em's "Lord Chumley" Company, died sud
denly at the Lyceum Theater last night just
after be had left the stage at the end of the
first act of the comedy. Bishop had been
tronbled for several days by what he be
lieved to be an attack of dytpepsia, and
when he'went to the theater last night bis
wife, Josephine, accompanied him.
She had been his constant companion for
the last 20 years, and he said that he wanted
her near in case he should be taken with
another attack of dyspepsia. He was low
spirited and weak when he went upon the
stage, but no one in the large audience was
able to detect it in his bluff and hearty im
personation of Butteraorth, the retired
his last impeesonation.
Just as he stepped from the stage into the
corridor leading to his dressing room he fell
in a dead faint Mr. Sothern and the stage
manager sprang to him and bore him to the
latter's room, just back of the stage, and
the actors and actresses gathered about him
with pale faces.
A messenger dashed off and brought two

and just as one of them, Dr. Powers, reached
the stage manager's room the actor breathed
his last. His wife was hanging over him
crying as if her heart would break. Bishop
never recovered consciousness after he fell

"When he was carried into the manager's
room Mr. Sothern believed that the attack
was not serious, attributing it to dyspepsia,
and he went before the footlights and tola
the audience that Mr. Bishop had been
taken ill, but that it did not appear to be
serious, and that he would be able to con
tinue his part in a few minutes. The inten
tion was to allow Bishop's understudy to
take his part The curtain was lowered,
and remained down nntil his death.
Mr. Sothern announced the death to the
audience. It made a profound sensation.
Mr. Sothern added that the money would
be returned to the audience at the box office.
The audfence filed out withsolemn faces.
Bishop's fellow actors were terribly shocked
by the associate's untimely death. The
actor was a jolly, wholesouled sortof fellow,
and everbody around the theater liked him.
The occurrence brought tears to young
Sothern's eyes. Bishop had been his lead

Mr. Bishop was perhaps the best and
most refined exponent of broad comedy on
the American stage. Before he went on the
stage several years ago, he was a medical
practitioner in Baltimore. He was fre
quently called doctor by his associates, but
it was a title he did not care a great deal
Mr. Bishop first starred in "The "Widow
Bedott" He made the piece immensely
popular and it had a run for several years.
But Mr. Bishop will be best remembered in
his delineation of the drummer iu the play
of "Strictly Business." This play he pro
duced everywhere and was always received
with enthusiasm.
During Mr. McKee Bankin's manage
ment of the California Theater Bishop was
induced to shelve "Strictly-Business," and
join forces with the California Theater
tock company. A grand revival of old
comedies was the result, Mr. Bishop always
assuming the part of the grotesque charac
ter. "When Shakespeare's tragedy "Mac
beth" was produced at the California two
years ago, Mr. Bishop played one of the
witches. He took the whole house by storm.
The great actors in the play were almost
ignored, while the rotund little comedian
was applauded to the echo. About this
time Mr. Bishop was at the zenith of his
popularity. A yearago the deceased joined
the "Lord Chumley" Company. Mr.
Bishop was a man below the ordinary
height and very corpulent He could play
Sir John FaU'taff without adding any ap
pendages to look the character.
Attempt to Exact a Penalty for Violation of
a Statute.
New Yobk, October 8. An argument
was heard to-day in the general term of the
Supreme Court upon an appeal by the New
York, New Haven and Hartford Ballroad
for an order overruling a demurrer in a suit
brought by the people to enforce the pay
ment of 57,000 penalties for Using stoves in
their cars after November 1, 1888. The
company maintained that the law did not
apply to them, as only 26 miles of their
road was in the State, the act not applying
to railroads less than 50 miles in length.
The demurrer was overruled on the
ground that this provision didn't refer to
trunk lines like that of the defendant, but
to short roads within the State. Decision
was reserved.
