morning closed the first grand demon
stration by the antlered herd ever held
In Rock Island, started the new lodge
on Its way. and the visitors departed,
leaving the "baby I'lks" to grow.
Members of the Moline lodge put in
almost the entire day and night here
getting the new organization into
working order. Initiation was iu prog
i ress all of the afternoon and all of the
i candidates returned to the Lall in the

The officers were installed at this
Ki-ssion and other matters pertaiuiug lo
the welfare of the new organization
were taken up.
Suitable quarters for the Rock Isl
and lodge have not yet been found, al
though there are i.everal places under
consideration. The rooms must be suf
ficient not only for a lodge room, but
mut be adequate for a club room.
The program that had been arranged
for the day closed wilh the banquet at
night at the Harper house. Everything
that was needed or wanted was set be
fore every Elk in the room, and for
two and one-half hours the sociability
of the order prevailed in the dining
room. Over two hundred were seated,
and after partaking of the plentiful
-. spread, enjoyed the program of toasts.
Hon. Charles J. Searle was toastmas
ter and each speaker was introduced
Jn his characteristic manner.

The address of welcome to the visit
ing Elks was given by B. Frank Knox,
who had recently been chosen to fill
the highest office in the gift of the
I took Island IiNlge. "It is an unusual
privilege." he said, "to meet with hi
mauy good looking business men;
such good, wholesniiled fellows; fel
lows who will stay with you. especially
when you are being Initiated. ToUie
visiting Elks he extended the invita
tion to come again and not take the
first train back, as that leaves at 7
o'clock in the evening, but to remain
for the next one, which leaves at 7 In
the mi. ruing.
"Now that you have given us such a
good Mart." he said. "I want to say
that we am not going to stop here,
but are going to advance until we be
come, not the best lodge, but close
after you. We will not be the best in
the state of Illinois, because that will
be In Moline. (Applause from Moline).
Ccorge E. Randall, district deputy
grand exalted ruler, responded to the
address of welcome, by first discuss
ing the rivalry and the respective qual
ities of the cities of Rock Island and
Moline. and then turned to a discussion
of the merits of the. order.
"Conditions have changed in Elk
doni." he said. "There is more in Elk
dom today than simply being a good
fellow, have a good time when the oc
casion demands it; but bear In mind
that you are an Elk. and when you are
nn Elk. you are a good citizen. Chris
tian and home man." The speaker
gave the information that the Elks dis
pense more in charity than any other
order in the world and little is heard of
it. ajid said. "Bear In mind that char
ity, first, last and at all times is the
cardinal principles of Elkdom."

"As 1 look over the field of tri-city
Elkdom during the last 15 years." said
Mayor Andrew Olson, of Moline. in re
sponse to a toast. "I observe that every
five years au Eiks lodge has been In
stituted. May 10. ten years ago. there
was a lodge of Elks organized in Dav
enport; five years ago last March one
was organized in Moline. and tonight
you are instituting a lodge here in
After refereuce to the high standing
of the Elks in the three sections ol
what the sn-aker termed one great
city, he turned to give answer to Mr.
Randall, and said that it may be true
that Elgin disputes with Aurora the
supremacy of Kane county, but Rock
Island aud Moline are working togeth
er in forging to the front with one of
the greatest couuties in the state of

bers and officers of the Moline lodge
who reside In this city were given
credit for having given their time to
coming to Moline to attend the meet
ings and given their serices faith
fully. "Moline will watch you grow. he
paid, ''and as you grow will become
proud of you. If you grow larger than
Moline, ou will find no greater pride
than In that growing suburb of yours.
The towns have been more strongly
cemented by the lodge of Elks, and
one of the pleasures I look forward to
is the hospitality and friendly inter
course I know will prevail among Dav-
nport. Rock Island and Moline Elks.
A. H. Kohler, of Moline, observed
that all candidates look forward to the
-social session, but had further noticed
that men differ as to what constitutes
a social session. Descriptions of so
clal sessions hi Davenport and Musca
tine were given. In dealing with the
general subjt-t. Mr. Kohler told of
how Davenport had helied thein in
their younger days, and now they stood
ready to help Rock Island. "We are
going to make you. not the best lodge
in Illinois, but the next best, as we
must reserve the Hist place for our
"What Constitutes an Elk" was the
subject to which (ieorge W. S-ott. of
Davenport, responded, and he answer
ed by other interrogatories. What con
stitutes au ideal man? What consti
tutes an ideal state? He referred to
the remarks of Mayor Olson as to the
institution of the lodges in the three
cities, and said that since the Daven
port lodge went over to Moline and in
stituted the lodge there, they had al
ways felt that it was a child of theirs,
and enjoyed seeing it grow, "and now
we Davenport Elks who are here to
night," ho said, "feel that we are in
the midst of our grandchildren."
Robert R. Reynolds responded brief
ly and with considerable good humor
to the toast, 'Baby Elks." He took
up the physical, moral aud mental
phases of Elkdom as they are observed
by a baby Elk. and was able to sieak
for the multitude.
Henry Vollmer, of Davenport, was
to have responded to the toast, "Fra
ternalism," but he was unable to be
present, and Mayor Robert MeNutt, of
Muscatine, made a few remarks in
stead. Base Ball
