Superintendent Anderson of Illinois in troduced recommendations from the con ference of state superintendents, recently In session at the Bliss building In this city, to the effect that: "When a vacancy occurs or is about to occur in the office of state superintendent of the league In any state the state head quarters committee of said league shall at once notify the general superintendent and he shall notify the national headquarters committee, and by the concurrent action of the general superintendent, national headquarters committee and state head quarters committee a superintendent shall be chosen who shall serve until the next meeting of the state board of trustees. "The general superintendent, with the approval of the national headquarters com mittee, may go into any state or territory where the Anti-Saloon League has not been organized, or has ceased to exist, or Is not at work, or is not affiliated with the American Anti-Saloon League, and where no affiliated organization is doing work along Anti-Saloon League lines, and ar range for a representative meeting of the I churches, the organisation of a state Antl Saloon League, which shall be affiliated ' with the American Anti-Saloon League, the selection of a state board and the appoint 5 ment of a superintendent with the concur rence of that board. Must Issue Commissions. "It shall also be the duty of the national headquarters committee to issue a com mission to all state Anti-Saloon League superintendents who shall be recommend ed by the general superintendent and state headquarters committee. "The national headquarters committee may at any time on the filing with it of written charges suspend, pending inves tigation, a commissioned superintedent for the following causes: Dishonesty. Im moral or Improper conduct, or the adminis tration of his office In such a manner as to compromise the cause of temperance in his own state, or prejudice the American Antl Saloon League or Impede Its progress. "Whenever the chairman of the national headquarters committee shall notify the state headquarters committee that the su perintendent of that siate has been supend ed, or that no commission has been Issued him, the chairman of the national head quarters committee shall arrange for a con ference within thirty days, or as soon there after as possible, of three factors, viz: The state headquarters committee, the national headquarters committee and the general su perintendent. "If any two of these factors shall agree that the superintendent Is a proper person, a commission shall be issued to him. If any two shall agree that the superintedent should not be left In charge of the work, his position may be declared vacant by them. A majority vote of the members i present shall be sufficient to determine the attitude of either committee for the above purpose. "Any of the factors above named may appeal at once from the decision of the other two to the board of trustees for the American Anti-Saloon League, and an act ing superintendent Shall be appointed to hold until the meeting of the board. The decision of the board of trustees, by a ma jority vote of the members present at a regular meeting, shall be final. "If the state headquarters committee per sists in retaining a superintendent after the board of trustees has approved a decision against him. such committee shall cease to be affiliated with the American Anti-Sa loon League, and shall forfeit the right to use the name 'Anti-Saloon League.' " Made a Special Order. The consideration of these recommenda tions, after some discussion, was made the special order for 9 o'clock tomorrow morn; lng. The resolutions, which are amend ments to the league's by-laws, contemplate a closer organisation and look toward the accomplishment of greater and more har monious work. It Is probable that the convention will make some minor changes In the resolutions as introduced by Dr. An derson, if It adopts them. The question of drawing up and having printed a statement of the plans and alms of the American Anti-Saloon League was brought up, and Rev. Dr. Ervln Chapman. LL.D., of Los Angeles. Cal.. spoke earnestly in favor of spreading abroad a statement of this kind, especially In order that new workers might become thoroughly ac quainted with the objects and methods of the organisation. He urged that a commit tee that was formerly appointed to carry out this object be requested to act as soon as possible. The committee was so In structed. Before the adjournment of the morning session s vote of thanks to the retiring officers was taken. The convention ad journed shortly after noon, to meet later In the afternoon. A telegram was sent this afternoon to Ifrs. P. A. Baker, la Ohio, wife of the new gci.tral superintendent, acquainting her of he* husband's election, and thanking her for the willingness she has expressed to Beginning Saturday, oj?en evenings until Christmas.
