Tho principal address of welcome in the absence of Governor Wood row Wilson, who had expected to be here, was made by Harry Bacharach, exalted ruler of tho Atlantic " City lodge. August Herr? mann, of Cincinnati, the grand ex? alted ruler, responded. The tlrst busi? ness session of the Grand Lodge will be held to-morrow. Members of the Richmond lodge arrived here yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock In their palatial special train, and at once marched to the Hotel Stanton. where they will make their headquarters during their reunlon. Thc delegations were met at the station by a body of their local broth? ers, with a brase band and escorted to their hotel, where an Informal re? ception was held. Virginia is well represented here, and there are more to arrive. Fifteen members of the Danville Dodge, No. U27. and twenty men from the Lynchburg lodge ar? rived yesterday and to-day. The for? mer expect ten more men late to? night or to-morrow. The visiting Elks aroec this morn? ing to face one of the hottest days In the history of tho local bureau.

Bill," sank Into obscurity to give place to the new one. "Take off your coat." This morning It would have been difficult to have found a man wearing this un? necessary garment, and as a result the pr ce of purple, shirts mounted to a record figure. Ten of the Richmond delegation, tempted by the fair sail? ing breeze, from the southwest, for? sook the great esplanade, and went fot a sail outside. Unlike several other parties from Western States, who have ventured on the deep, none of the. men was troubled with seasickness, and on their return another party for Wed? nesday was planned.
