SIR KNIGHTS IN LINE.
Imposing Parade of the Tem
plars in Washington.
Fatly 15,000 Men Marched Past the
President and Member of the Re
viewing Party Gorgeous Uni
form, Magnificent Dinners.
. The twenty-fourth triennial conclave of
the Knights Templar of the United States,
opened at Washington with a grand parade.
The day was one of those beautiful October
days, with plenty of bright warm sunshine
and Just a tinge of cold in the crisp, clear air
bringing tbe rosy flow of Color to the cheeks
of women and making the morning cocktail
doubly to be appreciated by the men. Tbe
sun came out warm and strong enough to
make tbe day perfect in wormtb. The crowds
turned out early. By nine o'clock the streets
were filled with Templars and bands hurry
ing to their rendezvous , The sidewalks were
lined with people. Schools were closed and
the departments were deserted. Business on
all streets live the Avenue was suspended,
and in many cases the proprietors of the
stores wisely locked up, and Rave their em
ployes a chance to see the parade. Tbe city
was gorgeous la its Holiday attire, anu its
quirter of a million of people turned out to
give tbe guests a royal welcome. Old and
y june, male and tenia. e, rich and poor, black
and white, native and foreign the whole
population of Washington, it would seem,
was on tbe line of parade. Every bouse along
the broad Avenue was a mass of glowing
colored flags of many nations, wreathed in
ail manner of device, conjoined with the
peculiar insignia of tbeknignts. Every bal
cony was gay with sightseers. Every win
dow was radiant with the bright tints of
1 dies' dresses. Even tbe bouse tops wre
crowded with people. The various stands
erected at tbe augles of tbe Aveou and in
tersecting cross streets wero densely packed
with human beings, who, witnout regard to
rank or dress, were mixed up with a sense of
perfect equality, wniie the sidewalks were
dense witu tbe refluent tides of curious hu
manity. The crowd on the street, like every South
ern crowd, was in perfect humor, josting and
shoving, treading on each other'. heels and
skirts occasional ly, but always good-humored,
still. Great forces of policemen were
spread along the Avenue, but there was no
need of them.
The crowd seemed all to gravitate toward
tbe corner of Fifteenth street and the Ave
nue. Undoubtedly, if one must view the
parade from the lower basis of the curbstone,
there is no better place in the town.
It was shortly before noon when the parade
started. From that time for over three hours
the tine move by. It is roughly estimated
that there were about 2J.000 men in line. Tbe
effect was superb. There have been larger
parades tn point of numbers, there have been
showier parades in point of dazzling-hued
uniforms; but there has never been such a
parade ot uniformly fine-looking, thorough
bred men. It was tbe acme of pure taste in
dress and bearing. Tbe severe uniformity of
dress varied only so far that some comman
deries wore black plumes instead of white in
their chapeaux. Two commanderiesfrom
Virginia oarried lances; but, otherwise, there
was a chaste and unuorm simplicity that
could not be surpassed. Ai tbe masonic col
umns came up the Avenue the gentle, Octo
ber wind swayed tbe white plumes until, as
some one said, tbe Avenue looked like a
"moving meadow of lilies." Platoon after
platoon marched by, always wearing the
same uniform of black, but the sight never
nr.-w tiring. Tbe m sn were too manly, their
bearing too martial, tbe music too good for
the mind to tire. Add to it tbe strange, but
porpectly executed movement?, now forming
a gigantic latin cross, now a noiiow square,
again a Maltese cross, then a triangle, at ways
with matbeinaticil exactness.
The twelve divisions of tbe procession
formed in the streets adjacent to tbe capitol.
and debauching from tbese side streets at the
signal of command filed into line, and began
tbe long march up Pennsylvania avenue,
whose broad surface waspjrfctly smooth and
level, having been newly laid with asphalt a
short while ago. The parad moved over a
line of march three and a half miles long,
beginning at Fist and B streets, east of tbe
C tpitol, thence to F street, down P street to
Pennsylvania at tbe foot ot Capitol Hill, and
along Pennsylvania avenue, pst the Treas
ury Building and White Hou, to Washing
ton Circle, where tbe parade moved into K
street, and dowu that street to Mount Ver
non Square, where the commanderies were
d.smisMd. In front of tbe White House a
stand was erected on tbe same site from
which tbe President in March last reviewed
the long columns of soldiery and civio or
ganiz itions that formed tbe inaugural pro
cession. From this atand the President re
viewed the kuignts. Another stand was
erected on K street, near tbe end ot tba line
of march, lor tbe accommodation of the
most eminent grand master, General Charles
Roome, of .New York, and here be reviewed
1 The Grand Encampment began its session
immediately upon arriving at Masonic Tem
