the Salt Lake route of Los Angeles, at
their last meeting yesterday afOTnlng
by unanimously choosing him us presi
dent of the association for the coming
year. They selected • Boston as the
next place of meeting.
The election of officers was the only
work which the telegraphers had be
fore them when they met at the Alex
andria yesterday morning. From the
first there was no doubt as to who
', would be selected to till the chief ex
ecutive's chair, as Dyer has been acting
chairman all through the present ses
sions and was the choice of the con
vention, to a man, to continue in that
In nominating Dyer, B. W. Griffith,
superintendent of telegraph for the
Erie railroad and chairman of the as
sociation's nominating committee, said:
"The chairman of this convention has
appointed my associates and myself to
introduce Mr. Dyer to this organization
as its new president, but it Is well for
me to say here that this committee on
introduction might as - well introduce
the sun rising in the east ami setting
in the west as to attempt to introduce
Mr. Dyer to this association. He has
said somewhat modestly and some
what timidly that he will do the best
he can to guide the affairs of this
association. We know what that
means. We have had it right here in
Los Angeles, and we know what we
can expect and we are well satisfied."
Following Mr. Griffith's speech the
new president was given a cheer, and
the other officers of the assocoation
elected. These were J. B. Sheldon, su
perintendent of telegraph for the Union
Pacific, first vice president; William
Bennett, superintendent of telegraph
for the Chicago & Northwestern road
in Chicago, second vice president; P.

RECEIVES WATCH . [.X<
• Another feature of interest at yes
terday's meeting was the presentation
of a gold watch to Miss Adrienne Dyer,
daughter of the new president, by
members of the association in honor of
her seventeenth birthday. Miss Dyer
is known among the members as "the
daughter of ■ the association." The
watch bore the following inscription on
the back of the case:
"From the Association of Railway
Telegraph Superintendents to Miss
Adrienne E. Dyer, June 21, 1910."
■ Yesterday afternoon was spent prin
cipally in inspecting the exhibits on
display in the banquet room. One ex
hibit which attracted much attention
was that of the Western Electric com
pany of Chicago. It was In charge of
Earl K. Dyer, son of I. T. Dyer, the
president of the association and a for
mer Los Angeles man. He was selected
especially to handle this exhibit on ac
count of his expert knowledge of teleg
raphy and of the practical needs of the
railroads. Dyer Is an exponent of the
telephone method of train dispatching
and made several talks and demonstra
tions on the advantages of the new
system over the old telegraph way.
This morning the delegates will leave
the Salt Lake station on a special train
and spend the day at Avalon. They will
return to Los Angeles this evening.
The delegates from the east appre
ciate the manner In which they have
been entertained while In Los Angeles,
and in order to show this appreciation
they yesterday passed two resolutions
setting forth their thoughts on the
subject. One of these Is to I. T. Dyer,
complimenting and thanking him for
the making possible the holding of un
doubtedly the most succesful conven
tion both to the delegates and to the
roads they represent ever held. The
other expresses the thanks of the or
ganization to many corporations and
firms which extended courtesies to Its
members during the convention.

FIRE STILL RACING IN
HOLD OF BIG STEAMER
Attempts to Prevent Destruction
of Alaskan Abandoned.
SAN DIEGO, June 24.—At 8 o'clock
tonight, one week after the American-
Hawaiian steamer Alaskan arrived In
this port with flre in her after hold,
the flames are still raging and the
prospect of subduing them Is more
uncertain than at any time since the
flre was discovered.
Late this afternoon the hatches of
the after hold, which had been- bat
tened down tight since the previous
attempt to reach the fire several days
ago, were opened. In No. 6 hatch it
was found that, a cavity had been
burned out of the cargo. The steve
dores pulled out some boxes, where
upon flames shot up. Chemicals were
poured on the fire, which seemed to
yield very quickly and hope was en
tertained that It was virtually extin
gufshed. But when the party had
worked down about four feet into the
lower hold the firemen and stevedores
found more fire and were driven back.
It was seen then that the flames
were eating their way between decks.
The attempt to fight the flames had to
be abandoned again, firemen, steve
dores and sailors being unable to work
In the stifling fumes.
As It was, twenty or more of the fire
fighters were overcome and were sent
to the hospital.
As a result of It all the hatches
were again scaled up and the chemical
engine continued to send Its streams
into the hold through holes bored In

WELCOME TO FRANK PIERCE
Past Officers of Grand Lodge At
tend Great Reception to
Head of Order
With 8000 persons In attendance and
a large number of distinguished visi

party and official reception to Frank
Pierce, grand master of Masons, and
grand lodge and past gTand lodge of
ficers at Al Malaikah Shrine coliseum,
655 West Jefferson street, last night
was probably the most brilliant as
semblage of Masonry ever gathered in
California. Members of the committee
of arrangements said last night that
the crowd was the largest that has ever
met in Southern California. Prominent
Masons from every section of the state
were at the meeting.
The party and reception was held
under the auspices of the Masonic
lodges of Los Ar.geles and was In cele
bration of St, John's day, one of the
Masonic festival days.
Outside of the entrance of the coli
seum, magnificently lighted for the
occasion, stood a long lina of repre
sentatives from every Los Angeles
lodge, and foremost men of the order
in the city. They were in full dress
and each wore the full insignia of his
office. The line extended from the en
trance across the yard diagonally to
The program of the evening was
opened with the arrival of the grand
master and the officers of the grand
ldoge past and present, escorted by
the sixty-five representatives from the
twenty-one Los Angeles lodges, and led
by the Al Malaikah band of thirty
pieces. :, V;

hall and then down the center. In the
center of the hall a double line of the

through the aisle to the stage at the
end. As Grand Master Frank Pierce
passed each section of seats he was
greeted with cheers. Judge William
Rhodes Hervey, presiding officer of the
evening, stood upon the stage while
the parade was marching.
ADDRESS OF WELCOME
Judge Hervey's address of welcome
was very brief. He spoke of the honor
with which the guests were received
by the Los Angeles lodges. Then he
commented upon the significance of
St. John's day. With that he intro
duced Grand Master Pierce.
Pierce touched upon some of the ob
jects of Masonry, thanked his hosts
for the honor and retired.

entertainment. The Philharmonic male
quartet, consisting of Leroy Jepson,
first tenor; Sheldon Balinger, second
tenor; Harold Ostrom, baritone, and
Dr. J. Lester Adams, bass, was warm
ly received upon its appearance.
Probably no feature of the enter
tainment was better enjoyed than the
selections offered by the girls' mando
lin quartet of the Masonic Orphans'
home. The four girls, dressed in
white, took a place at a piano In the
center of the coliseum and so atten
tive were their auditors that the music
could be heard to the most remote cor

A GRANDMOTHER may not be as
i .A spry as she used to be, but she is in
close touch with her world for all that.
The telephone enables her to make as many calls as
she pleases, and in all sorts of weather.
Formal gatherings have their place, but it is the many
little intimate visits over the telephone that keep people
young and interested.
Grandmother's telephone visits do not stop with her
own town. The Long Distance Service of the Bell Tel
