Can anyone identity the organization? SAU? AUS?

Always the possibility it is USA as well. I ran several searches with no real results. Any markings on the back to give a clue to the maker?

It seems (to me) to more likely a badge/identification for a US member at an international convention....maybe odd fellows, red cross, masons, boy scouts or the like

I agree with a convention. No unions back then so would agree with others as listed above. The letters look like SWI to me.

Maybe International Shriners - Mohammed Shriners is a fraternal society based in Bartonville (Peoria), IL that was founded in 1893....USA may refer to USA rite as opposed to Scottish rite (Until 2000, one had to complete either the Scottish Rite or York Rite degrees of Masonry to be eligible for Shrine membership )
or maybe related to the 1900 presidential campaign or even the electoral college ?
