KAISERS ARMADA AT STOCKHOLM
NATIVES PUZZLED TO EX
WILHELM DOES NOT INTIMATE IN
ANY WAY WHAT HIS
STOCKHOLM, July 14.—Constern
ation prevails throughout the country
over the sudden announcement that a
German armada, oonsisting of 12
battleship?, 11 cruisers and 10 toroedo
boats will make a demonstration at
five points in Swedish waters between
Jnly 20 and August 7. Gothenburg
and Ud.avilla will be visited on the
west and Stockholm, Karstrom and
Narrkopmg on the east. No foreign
fleet of Buoh proportions ever came to
Sweden before. The disposition of
the squadron will amount to a bloc
ade of the entire Swedish coast.
This unexpected and unsolicited vi
sit of tbe kaiser's navy, while not
considered a hostile act, excites aston
ishment bordering on alarm. Nobody,
not even the government officials is
able to offer an explanation.
Newspapers refrain from comment
because, as editors confidentially tell
your correspondent, they are astonish
ed at this fresh outbreak of Emperor
William's favorite policy of surprise
aud mystifio tion. If he intends it as
a token of frienudship it is asserted
that he has over done it and that he
ought to have chosen a more amiable
and less disquieting form of amity
than girdling Sweden with a formid
able cordon of Gorman batteships.
Swedish bus eptabilities are further
Injured by tbe information that the
German general staff has detaied offi
cers to investigate the state of milit
ary preparations in Sweden and Nor
Elks unanimously Select that City as Meet
ing Place for Grand Lodge
BUFFALO, N. V., July 12 —The
twentieth annnal reunion of the Bene
volent and Protective Order of Elks
will be held in Denver in 1906. One
ballot deoided that at che grand lodge
meeting today. Denver received
twice as many votes as Dallas, whicb
made a strong fight. Atlantic City
had few supporters.
Early in the day the whole city was
astir preparing for the dress parade.
It is estimated that 50,000 Elks march
ed in the drizzling rain hot the streets
were lined with an eager throng that
had to be held in cheok by wires along
tbe entire line.
BOYS WERE GOOD
SEATTLE, July 14.—"1 am cer
tain that all the officers will testify
to the fact that there was no cigar
ette smoking among tbe cadet corp
at the last encampment," sdid First
Lieutenant Lloyd Woodnut yesterday,
in disoussing tbe order discontinu
ing any further encampments during
school terms because of excessive
cigarete smoking and profanity. "Some
of the boys had their pipes and tobaoco
with them, bnt I nor any of the other
officers saw any evidences of cigarette
smoking among our boys. They prob
ably cut up some, but no more so than
the football or baseball teams when
they f o on a trip. It will simply
spoil the future of the company un
less matters can be satisfactorily ad
Mr. Blanton is figuring on the con
struction of anelectrio line, probably
from Goat Greek to Pateros, and
building a smelter at the latter place.
