ELKS’ STATE CONVENTION THE BEST EVER The Thirtieth Annual Event Held Here Tuesday aitd Wednesday—2,ooo Members of the Order in Attendance. i As stated in the last Pilot, the j opening gun of the thirteenth an nual session of the Elks’ state con vention was firec. on Monday even ing at tiie Grand Opera house in this city, at which time it was hoped that a large a large number of the dele gates would be present from the city. The opera iiouse was filled however, but mostly by our home people. Frank P. Regner. city attorney, de livered an address of welcome which was responded to by President John C. Karel. This program was com mented upon at some length in the last issue of the Pilot. Delegates from all over the state kept coming with every train Mon day afternoon arid evening and all day Tuesday and special trains came in as late as on Wednesday forenoon, and by that time Wausau had within her borders several thousand dele gates as fine a body of men wearing the purple and white as can be got ten together on any 0430081011, all bent on having a good time. The weather rian was certainly good to the Elks. Tuesday and Wednesday were ideal in every way, not a cloud dimmed the face of “Old Sol” and while it was warm, it was not too much sc for comfort. It turned off delightfully cool on Wednesday evening so that those go ing to their homes by train did not suffer from the Lt rained dur ing the night just; enough to lay the dust in good shape so those who started for their 1 omes on Thursday morning v/ere also highly favored, and thus, so far as the weather was concerned it was as perfect for the occasion as one could wish. All of the principal business streets were decorated with the white and purple and thousands of flags and banners, disturbed by every breeze, made a sight that was beautiful and inspiring. The business places, pub lic buildings and in many instances, private homes, and especially the Elks’ headquarter at the coiner of Fifth and Jefferson streets were at tractively decorated. The American colors were much in evidence together with the colors of the order. TUESDAY At Elks’ hall, at 10 o’clock a. m., die first session of the convention was opened, with President John G. Karel presiding. Addresses of wel come were made by H. E. Smith, Exalted Ruler of Wausau Lodge No. 248, and in behalf of the city by F. P. Regner, city attorney, which were •esponded to by T. H. Hanna of Stevens Point. The various committees were ap pointed and the address of President Karel delivered, which was a very able paper. On the outside there was almost a constant arrival o’’ Elks by train and automobiles. Merrill sent a large delegation and St,evens Point came up 100 strong, matiy coming in autos and there was almost continual inarching of Elks he jded by bands or fife and drum co 'ps and there was one continual round of music. In the morning base ball games were scheduled between the Elks of Rhinelander and Jrand Rapids, the former winning by a score of 4 to 1. in the afternoon, the Elks of La- Crosse and Superior crossed bats, the former w inning by a score of 10 to 9. The ladies were entertained in the parlors of the Wausau club house during the afternoon at a reception, light refreshment!! being served. In the evening there was exemplifi cation of the work at Castle hall by Green Bay, Milwaukee and Antigo teams and a banquet at Elks' hall at 10 o'clock. A pot-prandial program followed at whiei Judge Karel pre sided and many of the prominent Elks made brief talks. The Elks were out for a good time and had it andjthey were given the 'reedom of our Icily. Their good-na tured stunts were enjoyed very much by everybody.

There were also various reports read, and acted upon. The final game of ball was between La Crosse and Rhinelander Elks at Yaw key park, was played in the morn ing and was won by LaCrosse by a score of 3to 2. Avery handsome sil ver loving cup was the prize. The great event of the day was the parade which was formed at two o’cioCi; on Fourth stree* 'rom Forest to Jefferson and on side St,. *ts. Th. march was up Fourth to a. I.idoe. west on Mcindoe to Third, down Third to the city hall. This was led by H. E. Schuler, marshal, who was mounted on a beautiful white horse and was pre ceded by three little girls costumed in white and put pie. Following were the state officers and the veter ans of the order, Messrs. Jacobs of Stevens Point and Goodman of Mil waukee. Then came the Wausau Eiks, dressed in white suits with pur ple trimmings. Eau Claire, Grand Rapids, Oshkosh, Waukesha, Antigo, Superior, Mari nette and others. Eacli lodge was dressed differently, but all in the colors of the order. There were many bands in line. At the h.ad of the Milwaukee dele gation, Miss Marshall or “Miss Mil waukee” as she was designated, rode in a carriage profusely decorated with roses and June flowers. It required 800 roses in this work of art. The LaCrosse Elks carried their silver loving cup won by their super ior ball playing. The Racine marching club was headed by the Imperial band of Mer rill, numbering twenty pieces and it wits one of the best bands attending the convention. The Gi'and Ranids delegation was headed by a women’s band, anyway the members were attired as women and wore sun-bonnets, but they paid no attention to present styles, but wore dresses which enabled them to walk. The Superior bunch created a good deal of mirth. All that could, rode on one of the city’s sprinklers, or a water wagon, and back of it was at tached a couple of wagons on which the lialance were seated. It was estimated that there were 1500 Elks in line, and the parade va~ watched by many thousand people. It w as a great success. Ani tlier great event of the occasion for which extensive preparations had been made was the autoir.otn.e par ade whicli took place between eight and nine o’clock in the evening. The autos were variously decorated and all made a splendid appearance. Red lights were burned at various places on Third street, at Elks' headquarters and many places along the line. The start was on north Sixth street and then north to Third to Forest, then to Grand avenue, across Strollers' bridge up various streets on the west side and then across the main and slough bridges to Washington where the parade was disbanded. It was a very beautiful feature of the occasion. It was voted to hold the 24th an nual convention in Oshkosh. lt was & great event and two days’ full of enjoyment toour people as well as to the visitors.

Some of our citizens who were before our county probate court Monday, on business have nothing but praise for our new probate judge, Mr. Bump. In his decisions as to sending the old and infirm “over the hilts to the poor house,” he lets humanity and sentiment govern his decisions, rather than cold bloooded business reasons. The business maxim of the day is “Safe ty First,” but in dealing with the poor and the aged it is well to say “Humanity First.” —Athens Re cord. WILL HAVE A NEW DEPOT.
