Chicago.—Marching to the music of
forty two hands and the almost equal
ly melodious cheers of hundreds of
thousands of their relatives, friends
and admirers, some 50,000 Knights
Templar took part August 9 in the
greatest parade ever held by the or-
der. Their waving plumes and fine
uniforms were fittingly set off by the
beautiful decorations of the streets and
buildings, and the scene was one that
will not soon be forgotten by those
who were fortunate enough to witness
This magnificent parade was the
climax, in a spectucular way, of tho
thirty-first triennial conclave of
Knights Templar, which opened here
on Sunday, Aug 7. In accordance
with the time honored custom of the
grand encampment, the doings of the
week began with divine service.

Monday was devoted mainly to the
receiving of the grand and subordinate
commanderies and escorting them to
their hotels It ls estimated that fully
100,000 visitors came with the knights
and that about 300.000 other excur-
sionists have flocked to the city this
week In consequence of the conclave.
Of course every hotel was thronged
and thousands of the visitors found
quarters in private residences.
On Monday evening all the local
and visiting commanderies kept open

ters, and many of tho visitors found
their way to tho various amusement
parks and the theaters.
Parade of The Knights.
The "grand parade" of Tuesday was
the largest parade of Knights Templar j
ever held. Tho preparations were
elaborate and Michigan boulevard was
most elaborately decorated. The sir
knights formed In lino of march on i
the boulevard south of Thirty first
street, and signal to move was given |
by the guns of Hattery B, I. N. G., the
detachment for the purpose being
composed of Knights Templar all of
whom are members of the battery
The same detachment fired the salute |
to the grand master.
Marching northward in Michigan
boulevard, the parade passed, near
Hubbard court, beneath an entrance
arch built In the form of an ancient
battlement with Its towers and tur-
rets. This was intended to represent
the entrance to the city, and as the
column passed under it. buglers sta-
tioned on Its heights heralded tho ap-
proach of each grand division.
Next the knights came abreast of
the first grand stand, one-half mile In
signed by one of Chicago's most fa-
mous sculptors. Upon its top stood
the figures of mounted kuights four-
teen feet high. At the new city hall
on Washington street the parade was
dismissed, after marching forty-three
Care For the Marchers.
Everything that could be thought
of for the comfort of the paraders and
the spectators was done by the local
committees. In nearly every block
| along the line of march were station-
ed physicians who were also knights
templar, with trained nurses and
equipment for emergency cases. In
addition, emergency hospitals to be
kept open day and night during the
conclave were established at many
points in the center of the city, and
at the West Side ball park which waa
selected as the place for the competi-
Wednesday and Thursday were the
days set apart for the drills for which
handsome trophies are awarded, and
band concerts, sight seeing and many
receptions were on the program.
Entrancing Scenes at Night.
The scene in the streets at night
was especially beautiful, for all the
arches, festoons and columns of the
decorative scheme were brilliantly Il-
luminated, and on State street, in ad
dition to the "Templar Way," the mer-
chants had put up decorations that
transformed the great shopping dis
trict into a veritable fairly land.
Undoubtedly the most spectacular
feature of the night display was the
wonderful electric set piece erected

emblem or badge of the conclave. It

Under the ruling of the court, all
these officials must remove all state
