Cousin Of Prince Albert Victor

Post by Karen on Sun 28 Feb 2010 - 17:00

In this article, Henry James Fitzroy, the Earl of Euston, is described as being the cousin of George V of England, ergo, he was also the cousin of George's brother, the Duke of Clarence (Albert Victor Christian Edward.)

PLUMED KNIGHTS IN MIGHTY HOST CAPTURE CHICAGO

GREATEST PARADE IN HISTORY OF ORDER.

HALF MILLION PERSONS STAND IN AWE AS THIRTY THOUSAND MASONS OF HIGH DEGREE SWEEP DOWN MICHIGAN BOULEVARD IN SIXTEEN DIVISIONS; THREE HOURS TO PASS GIVEN POINT.

By Associated Press.

Chicago, Aug. 9. - Trumpets blared, a thousand orders shouted as one; out from acres of waving glistening white plumes a steady, broad ribbon of gleaming white poured itself out into Michigan boulevard with banners bearing heraldic devices and with cross hilted swords, at shoulder, and there began in Chicago today the greatest parade of Knights Templar witnessed in the history of the order. Every knight attending the thirty-first triennial conclave who could get into line was there, a part of the seeming endless stream of sombrely attired knights which took three hours to pass a given point.

Noted Britons Present.

Right Hon. Henry James, earl of Euston, cousin of King George of England and the most eminent supreme pro grand master of the Great Priory of England and Wales awaited beside the line, attired in his full regalia as head of the British Templars, to review followers of the Red Cross.

Salute With Flashing Steel.

Farther on Mayor Busse was saluted and still farther Governor Deneen acknowledged the tribute of flashing steel. This was the big day of the conclave and half a million persons stood along the streets in awe and wonderment while 30,000 Knights in sixteen grand divisions swept down the line of march.

Knight Killed By Car.

The first accident of sufficient consequence to mar the conclave occurred this morning when Herman Gressman, member of Apollo commandery of Chicago, was struck and fatally injured by a State street car as he was crossing "Templar Way."
Gressman died at the hospital. An angry crowd threatened violence to the street car crew but a squad of police restored order. Gressman, a wealthy contractor, returned from a European pleasure trip with his wife and family. He was in full regalia when the accident occurred.
