SEW PLAN OF tiOYEBNMENT.
It Is I'ndcr Consideration at the Sessions
of tho Supremo Council of th Young
Men's Institute in Denver.
The Denver papers nre devoting a
good deal of spnoe these tlays to tne
proceedings of the supreme council of
the Younir Men's institute of America,
an organization wnicn no u. mrgo
membership in this county. So rupid
has been the growth of the Institute
that It has been found necessary to
somewhat modify the plan of n'overn
meiit. There ure now two Jurisdictions,
the Eastern and Western conventions
of which are known as sessions of the
grand council. At present representa
tives of the two grand councils com
prising' the supreme council are in ses
sion at Ijenver and the deliberations of
this body will have a great influence
on the developenient of the organiza
tion in the future.
One of the twelve representatives of
the JOastern Jurisdiction ut Denver is
Jumes L. Uaynur, of this city. In an
article describing the various members
of the supreme council the Denver Re
publican suys: "James L. (Juynor, of
Scranton. Pa., Is the youngest member
if the supreme council, being- only J.!
years of age. He is III the eli-ctricni
