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
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
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.

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
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
"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."

Ioeiic, August j5.- Memibers of religious
-rders expelled from France, particularly
sisters, are applying to the vatican authori
ties for permission to settle in the United
Setates. 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.
