Chaplain-in-chief, Rev. Father J. G.
Leary of Chapman, Kas.
Minneapolis was chosen as the meet
ing place for 1905.
The contest, for commander-tn-chlef
was the most interesting feature of the
sessions today. Besides Corporal Tan
ner, R. B. Brown of Zanesvllle, 0.,
Charles Burrows of Rutherford, N. J.,
and Charles G, Burton of Nevada, Mo.,
were placed in nomination. Burrows'
name was withdrawn. The call of the
roll of departments proceeded, until It
became apparent from the number of
names seconding that of Tanner that
his selection was a certainty. Although
George Stone of San Francisco was not
nominated formally as a candidate, the
department of California and Nevada
cast its fifteen votes for him. The total
vote for Tanner was 447. Brown re
ceived 187, Ohio and Pennsylvania
giving him their full vote and Indiana
a majority. The only large delegation
that voted for Burton was that of Mis
souri. His total strength was forty
When the adjutant general announced
the result the convention went wild.
The veterans leaped from their seats,
shouting and cheering and throwing
their hats Into the air. Amid the din
Brown mounted the stage and when
quiet had been restored sufficiently for
him to be heard he moved to make Tan
ner's nomination unanimous. .Messrs..
Burton and Stone both seconded the
motion, which was carried with a roar
of ayes. Commander-ln-Chlef King ap
pointed the defeated comrades a .com
mittee to escort Corporal Tailner to the
stage. While the four were walking
down the center aisle the delegates
made a rush for Tanner and lifting him
Into the air carried him bodily to the
rostrum. The delegates then rose en
masse and cheered for several minutes.
In a brief speech Corporal Tanner
thanked his comrades.
George W. Cook of Denver was tho
only nominee for senior vice comman
der and received an ovation when his
election was announced. For Junior
vice commander James G. Everest cf
Illinois and Silas Towler of Minnesota
were presented. The ballot resulted;
Everest 299, Towler 329.
Hugo Philler of Wisconsin and Fred
erick Brothers of Nebraska were nom
inated for surgeon general, # the former
receiving 362 votes and the latter 203.
The vote for chaplain in chief was
close, Father Leary of Chapman, Kas.,
winning from Jesse Cole of lowa by
a vote of 282 to 179.
Previous to the election a letter from
President Roosevelt to Commander-in-
Chief King asking him to "extend my
warmest congratulations to the com
rades there assembled arid say to them
how I regret that I cannot In person
meet them and express the affection
and regard I feel for them," was read
and a telegram in reply was sent.
Three Appointments by Tanner
The newly elected commander-ln
chief announced three appointments
and said they were all he would make
until he returned to Washington.

made adjutant general and Allen S.

Last night the visiting Elks owned
everything in view from Willie Des

presenting "If I Were King" to the lad
with lemon tablets to sell.
They arrived in Los Angeles shortly
before 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon
and were met by a reception committee
of which C. W. Fleming was the chair
Elks' hall was the Immediate destina
tion and there the hungry, herds
browsed upon a. repast peculiar to
Elks, and the best part was that It was
continuous. All during the afternoon
the tables were kept piled with eatables
and drinkables and the rooms were
crowded with men bent on striking a
death blow to dull care.
None but former Fire Chief Walter S.
Moore would have been equal to the
task of supplying the demand for
tickets to the various events of the
celebration and even he was forced to
close his window several times during
the, afternoon and cry out for mercy.
In the evening there was the theater,
with "If I Were King" as the Burbank
attraction and after that the "eleven
o'clock toast" with a response, by
Brother Tracey of Pasadena.
A special train will leave the Arcade
depot at 10: 15 :; o'clock this morning to
convey the Elks and their wives, sweet
hearts, mothers and sisters to Santa
Monica, where under the direction of
Chef Matt Everhardy the barbecue will
be given. ■
In the evening there will be "high
Jinks" and the Elks will seek thair
homes at "00" o'clock. That Is all that
is known of the evening performance
and probably all that ever will, be
known by the uninitiated. .

elaborate than any ever before at

hospital, the entire staff agreeing in
the statement that Mr. Thompson had
been beaten. There is, however, no
known motive for a murderous attack
upon the editor. , ;'.
