HUNTINGTON NEXT PLACE WHEELING WAS AN UNSIICCESSFUL'COMPETITOR The teuton of'the Grand LoJge lost I !-slight was very brief and was only convened for the purpose of receiving the reports of the various committees. Much speculation was engaged In last,night as to whether Wheeling or Huntington would get the next Grand J<odge meeting. Neither city had much .'advantage over the other In this fight m they are both located at extreme borders of the State anJ neither can claim the advantage of the more ceutra] geographical location as Is usuallymade an issue in such fights. Wheel^inr being the largest city and In the ; most populous section of the State would probably be closer to the largest number of the membership, but "Huntington was found a strong com?? petltor and showed many arguments . to offset the good points thBt Wheeling raised. ,? . Many thought from thg fact that .t.iv i* Chas. J. Schuck, the youthful but brilliant Grand Vlco Chancellor, who la / ; citizen of Wheeling and who by a ,the tenure of his office will' be 'thq next Grand Chuncellor of the Stpte, might cause the Grand Lodge to go to Wheeling ns expediency would ^ V.vIJb best served by having the Grand .V' 'Lodge where the Grand Chancellor V -could better look after the,detalls of ] ; the moating, but at tbe meeting to-Jay 1 thp question came td a vote as to the ' ] 'place "to hold, tbe neat meeting and 1 ; Huntington won in a walk and had many votes to spore. ' Huntington will make an Ideal town for the Grand Lodge meeting, especial- | "ly for the parade and drills as her I streets are the widest, levelest and as I ; * ' ;weU paved as any of the larger cities i In the State. I The hotel accommodations will be found entirely adequate as the New ! Frederick Is Just completed and is the < > - linest hotel In the State, which, added i jS '.'ivtSift?,various other hotels, will meet fe -'"all demands that the Grand Lodge may t iy- require. Suitable lodge room accom- l modations can also he found in abund- } ance; as the Auditorium of Marshall I . : , | College, the Opera Ifonse, the various I public school buildings and lodge rooms and their magnlllcent Courtg| house, will all be available and perfectV ly adequate. Another important- matter that was " disposed of last night was the matter of mileage which was reduced to 3 \ cents per mile each way. This meets the highest rates on the railroads of the State and on many of the trunk lines is a cent more than the rate which has been made two cents. The old mileage rate was 10 cents per mile each way. The Grund Lodge as well as the Grand Temple of Kathboue Sisters have been In busy session all day today and the first real hard w8rk of the meeting was commenced by each this morning. As a diversion from the regular routine work quite a number of the ' Knights took In the street car ride to Worthington, while another crowd *TrctiI dnu-n In tho InrtL'c nn tlui Ctnnm. tfr J. O.

I con- ,, gratulate you on the fact that Sen- i; ator Davis, a member of this body, ( had the; courage and the confidence j in the outcome to build the Coal f, and Colic railroad to Charleston, so | as to make It egsy and convenient 0for the people of the Interior of the y Stale to gel here. The time was N not so long ago, that to reach the 'c southern part of the State from oar section, one hHj to go by Washing on and through Ohio. All that Is u changed now. Before the building of the Coal & Coke railroad, there was co ready and direct connection between the northern and southern liaris of the State. These two sections were almost foreign to each other and the people had but little h Intercourse of any kind commercial or otherwise. Now they ore welded together by bars of ateel.
