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 usiness and 1ms neiii every oince in lis council." The Denver News hus the following to say concerning; the merlins; of the supreme council: I ormntlon of the Supreme Council.

Insurance and uellcial features are Included 111 tne nr- iinl.ation, but they are practically side Issues. Soon after the focieiy was started on the Paclile coast It gained the esteem of members of the church, nnd was at once success. Members going east spre.i t he scols. and soon branches were organ ized In the Atlantic slates. Having a renter population to draw from, the At- iintin Jurisdiction soon outstripped the west and sevcted nil connection or nn tllci.il nature. Then the need or n su ,reme council was felt, ur-d the outcon-e was its organization yesterday afternoon. Klcetinn of Officers.
