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
,? . 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
As a diversion from the regular routine

the weather was too cool for comfort
the excursion was otherwise enjoyed.

meeting of the Slate board of trade by
Senator Stephen B. Elklns: '
Mr. President: I ant glad to be
associated with this body of representative
men of our State. I like
the atmosprere of business association.
It is good to be here. 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.
In the midst of a political cnmtalgn,
it is a pleasure to turn aside (<
tnd take part In a movement for ()
lie good of the Stato, where all dlf
ferences are hushed Into silence,
and all Is harmony. To do good for y
