And by noon it was estimated that there were at least 2000 visitors in the village. At 10:30 a. m. a business meeting was held at the G. A. R. hall. A. J. Searle, of Lookout Tent of Forest House, re-elected president, and A. G. Woodward, of Roulette Tent of Rou lette, was re-elected secretary. Miss Mattie Beebe, of Summit Hive, of Forest House, was elected Treasurer. Charles Butler, of Goodwill Tent, of Emporium, was made chairman of the executive committee. Emporium was named as the place for holding the reunion in 1899.—Austin Democrat. ISeats the Klondike. Mr. A. C.
