VOL. XXII NO. 127 WEATHER FORECASTr ' BUTTE MONTANA, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST I5, zgos. FAIR-COOLER. PRICE FIVE CENTS CONOUERING HEROES RETURN IN GAY SPIRITS Montana Elks Are Met at De pot by Immense Crowd and Taken Up Town. SPECIAL CARS PROVIDEb FOR THE PRIZE WIlNNIERS Band Did Not Sulk at Final Contest, but Thought It Useless to Contend, as They Had Done Their Best at First Trial-What Salt Lake Folk Think of the Treasure State Delegation. When the Elks reached the Oregon Short Line depot this afternoon they found a warm welcome awalttng them. Manager Wharton had four special cars in readiness and in one which was superbly decorated, the Boston & Montana band was asked to ride in triumph to the city. Of course, the first question was: "How did you come to take second money at the band contest ?" "After the first contest It was a hundred to one shot that we had won," said one of the Elks. "Those who had an opportunity of witnessing the immense crowd that gathered at Liberty park to hear the great bands of the West compete will never for get it. Rarely in a man's life does he get an opportunity to listen to such a contest. "Salt Lake people place great confidence in the ability of the three men who com posed the adjudicating committee. They were Ellis Brooks, Anton Pederson and J. J. McClellan. Professor McClellan is one of the finest organists in the United States and at the exercises in the tabernacle he delighted the immense audience with his performance. Thought They Had It. "There was a general impression that two members of the commuittee stood for giving the Boston & Montana band the prize at the end of the first contest, and in counting the marks on which the con test was decided, it was thought that our band had won hands down. There was hardly a question of their superiority among the great audience. They con cluded that we had won, and not even the ardent supporters of the Denver band would maintain after the trial that they had a show for the money. "There was no such thing as sulkiness on the part of the band management when it was decided to refuse to enter a second time. It was considered the best thing to do under the circumstances, as Sam Tre loar and all who heard his band believed that there was sufficient opportunity to de cide on the first trial. "Incidentally I might mention that we got $i,ooo for the best appearance in the parade. Never was money more easily earned or more readily spent. Just ask John Kirk, he can tell you how it went and how we had several thousand dollars' worth of fun out of it." Notwithstanding the strenuous experi ences which the Elk uniforms had they looked gay and nice on their return. "If I could only get paid for wearing good clothes like this all the time I'd be satisfied," said Alderman Bacheler. "Some of us old ducks felt so years younger when we marched along and heard pretty girls cheer us on the line of march. There is much celebration still going on in the city as the Elks from other parts of the state are being entertained by the Butte brethren." At 3:40 this afternoon the Elks' special pulled into the Oregon Short Line depot. Not less than :,ooo people had gathered to greet the antlered herd returning. They came up town in a hurrahing procession, AFTER THE B ALL 18 OVER. V - , • , (Picture by In ter Mountain.) A6MWIR'TIO IS IN EVERY FMlj.

The reception committee was armed with new brooms tied with purple ribbons. HOW MONTANA BAND CAME TO GIVE UP IN CONTEST [Special to Inter Mountain.] Salt l.ake, August s5.-Santriano's band of Denver won first prize in the final band competition yesterday without opposition, the Boston & Montana band having with drawn from the contest. The Butte band claimed that the prize should go to them on account of their superior markings in the finals at Liberty park, Wednesday evening, when the judges gave them a score of t68 to Denver's t55. The Montanans co:tl.tleded that the "T'alnhauser o(vcrture alone should de termine the award without reference to the preliminary colltests. 'I he result was a withdrawal at the last mlounent before playing oft the tie at Saltair late in the afternoon. The circular upon which the .Montana boys based t..eir argument was wid,'ly dis tributed at the contests, and read inl part as follows: "It is the intention, in the first adjudication,. to eliminate approxi mately one-hal fof the competing bands, so much depends upon the first selection. The remaining one-half of the bands will compete in the second preliminary." "The wording of the circular is per fectly obvious on this point," said Band master Samuel II. Treloar. "\When we entered the preliminary contest we decided it was only necessary to play well enough to qualify for the finals of which we felt confident. If we had known that the marks were being saved up to count in the grand total we might have been far more careful in the selection of tile first number and in the manner of rendering it." "The test piece for all lanlds in the final competition is Tannhauser Overture by Wagner. Should there be a tie in the points made, or should the adjudicators be unable to award the prizes, the bands tied will be required to play hTrec Dances from music to 'Henry VIII.' by German."

Several of themc have cocme to Rdone personally for thle purpose of urging their requests. A reply has been sent to them pointing out that there are no vacan dces in the United States and, calling at tenion to the difficulty arising from the fact that the expelled sisters do not speak the English language. Canada has been suggested as a better field as sisters are comparatively scarce there and because French Is spoken In a large part of the dominion. The appli cants, however, did not take kindly to the suggestion and persist in their request to go to the United States.
