The convention was continued this
morning after a recess from yesterday
afternoon. Reports were received from
the retiring officers. When D. J. Zin-
ner, supreme secretary of the order,
submitted his report, some question
was raised by one of the delegates on
a number of items in the report. The
question raised quite a discussion, and
Secretary Zinner explained everything
in the report to the satisfaction of all
the delegates, as was evidenced when
a motion was carried unanimously stat
ing that the order had great confidence
in the work of the secretary and other
supreme officers. Secretary Zinner

retiring supreme counsellor. The of
fice formerly carried a Balary of $500

three was appointed to investigate the
matter and make a report. The com
mittee returned a report just before
the session adjourned this morning,
recommending that the office should
be abolished altogether, and to employ
an attorney when such services are nec
essary. No action was taken on the
matter this morning, and the meeting
was adjourned till this afternoon.
Rabbi W. H. Flneshriber was elected

PEORIA NOW REALIZING
THE HORRORS OF WAR
Citizens Will Ask State to Fay for
Damage Done by Soldiers Dur
ing Sham Battle.
Peoria will likely present a pretty
bill to the state as a result of the
sham battle that wound up the en
campment of the national guardsmen
in that city last week. Citizens and
park boards are getting together and
comparing notes, and they find that the
troops did a prodigous amount of
damage by charging over lawns, break
ing down young trees and shrubbery
and using the hedges and flower beds
to hide behind while firing on the foe.
Colonel Fred Smith, chairman of the
Peoria arrangements committee, was
the leading sufferer, having had a
fine suburban place which the troops
took delight in overrunning and which
was badly cut up by the hoofs of the
TO HOLD ANOTHER CONTEST
Christian Enrteavorers Planning a
Second Membership Race.
The business meeting of the Chris
tian Endeavor society of the Memorial
Christian church was well attended
last evening. At this meeting it was
decided to start another contest In
the society immediately. The member
ship will be mixed and redivided for
this new contest and there will be new
captains and officers. The same col
ors, red and white, will be used for the
sides. It was decided to give the same
points as in the last contest with the
addition of one point for attendance at
business meeting and one point for at
tendance at the mid-week prayer meet
ing. A committee of three, Rev. E. A. Mc
Farland, chairman, Miss Mollie Mayers
and Mrs. Mary Dewey, were appointed
by the president to name captains, and
to report at the prayer meeting of this
week. They will then pick their sides
and notify their members so that tie
contest can start next Sunday. It was
not decided definitely just when the
social and entertainment to the vie;
torious Reds would be given by the
Whites but It will be soon. The treas
urer's report shows that there is still
a surplus of $33.22 in the treasury and
all bills paid.
ARE FINED INPOLICE COURT
Mike Rooses and John Pole Each As
sessed $5 and Costs.
Mike Rooses and John Pole were
arrested last night on charges of dis
orderly conduct and this morning
they were arraigned before the po
lice magistrate, who assessed each of
them $5 and costs. It seems that
they are bachelors who have been
harboring women in their quarters
in the lower end of the city. One
was found with them yesterday and
the arrest followed. ' The neighbors
had made complaints about the men
previous to yesterday and the police
were keeping a quiet watch on them.
John Murphy, whom the police ac
cused of being a "moocher" or beg
gar, was sent down to the county
jail for 20 days this morning by the
police magistrate. He has used his

pity was wasted on him.

CURRAFJ BELIEVED A
VICTIM OF ROBBERS
Theory Is He Was Waylaid on Rail
road Track Not Vet Able
There was very little Improvement
noted today In the condition of
Thomas Curran' who is lying at St.
Anthony's, hospital suffering from a
compound fracture of the skull, ex
cept that he had regained conscious
ness. He Is still unable to talk,
however, and little further than that
related yesterday Is known. The
train crew which brought him in from
Carbon Cliff where he was . found
Sunday morning lying unconscious
beside the track, cannot tell how the
accident happened. It Is the opin
ion of Dr. S. B. Hall, who Is attend
ing the Injured man, that the frac
tured skull Is not the result of being
hit by a train, but rather by some
heavy, blunt Instrument in the hands
of robbers. . The doctor's theory Is
that Cnrran was waylaid and struck
from behind with an Iron bar. The
wound In the front of the head
looks as thought It might have been
made with a hammer. , The affair is
considerable of a mystery and it Is
hoped that Curran will recover
enough to be able to give the police
some "clew, provided the theory of
the doctor is correct.

the new quarters tomorrow. The
