WELCOME THE ELKS.
The Home Lodge Preparing For
Convention Visitors
Next Week.
At a special meeting of Annapolis
Lodge No. 622, Benevolent and Protec
tive Order of Elk', held last night at the
Home on State Circle, arrangements were
made lor entertaining a party of visiting
Elks from the convention of the Grand
Lodges of the United States to be held in
Baltimore next week.
The iceboat "Latrobe” will leave Bal
timore on Monday at 1.30 o'clock in the
afternoon and is expected to arrive here
at 4 o’clock at the Santee wharf. Naval
Academy. She will bring an excursion
of three hundred Elks, their wives and
daughters, sisters and lady friends. The
following has been appointed a committee
of reception from the local lodge : Dr.
VV. G. Tuck, chairman; Nevitt Steele,
Robert J. Berryman,E. Stanley Toadvin,
Luther H. Gadd, George W. Wilcox,
James W. Conroy, John R. Sullivan,
Wm. B. McCready, Jas. P. Bannon.
The visitors will be extended the cour
tesies of the Naval Academy and will
inspect the sights in the Academy and
in Annapolis, after which they will be
escorted to the Elks’ Home, where a
reception will be held and entertainment
provided. The Elks' Home has been
beautifully decorated for the occasion.
On the upper rail on the root garden is
the word •• Welcome” in large letters ol
red, whi;e and blue. The windows and
porch are elaborately decoiated with
white and put pie—the Elks’ colors. Fes
toons of white and purple grace the
beautiful colonial front porch, and twine
the pillars of the the porch.
The word "Welcome” is conspicious
in all the decorations. On the bunting
festoons are elks' heads and antlers and
the clock registering the famous hour—
XI, when the Elks drink to the absent
ones, The interior of the Home is also
handsomely decorated with garlands,
stats and designs in Elks’ colors. The
Anrapoits lodge is composed of 117
members, six'y of whom will take pari
in the parade in Baltimore next week.
Tiny will wear white duck saiior suits,
and will make a handsome appeatance.
They are unfortunate in not being able
to secure the Naval Academy band,which
is engaged for the summer at various re
sorts, but will have a Baltimore band
to bead them in the parade.
Thj local lodge will be represented in
'Baltimore at the convention by Past Ex
alted Rulers Luther H. Gadd, James W
Conroy and Ct-arles A. Zimmerman,who
will be entitled to all the privileges in
the convention. Tpe local lodge have
arranged for special trains over the An
napolis. Washington & Baltimore Rail
road on next Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday nights, leaving Baltimore at
11.30 o'clock. Further arrangements
will be completed at a meeting of the
Deal lodge Monday nigbt,
Should Be Repaired.
The city authorities shoald take some
steps toward the repair of the street at
the intersection of Conduit and Duke ol
Gloucester streets, where the Mack brick
paving has rben and arched itself to tbe
height of over a fool. This state of
affairs occurred several weeks ago, and
since that time traffic has been greatly
Interfered with. Tbe election is over,
which was said to have delayed the re
pairs, and now there seems to be no
reasonable excuse why they should not
be made. Faulty engineering and tbe
failure 10 place expansion joints at certain
points ot the street paving are said to be
responsible for tbe damage. At any rate
the repairs to tbe new streets have need
lessly cost tbe city large sums of money
and tbe taxpayers will bold those re
sponsible to account.
SPECIAL TRAIHB

And Its Recent Purchaser A
Sketch of Aaron L.
Goodman.
As briefly stated in tbe Capital, the
large block of property fronting about
sixty-five feet on Main street and fifty
six feet on Market Space, and embracing
four storerooms and a dwelling, was sold
at public auciion on Thursday to Mr.
Aston L. Goodman for >9.650 00.
For several reasons speculation ran
high as to the possible purchaser or pur
chasers, and the sum total the noted
Sands'estate would realise. Reports were
current that a number ot Baltimore mer
chants and brewers were negotiating for
the estate and their fabulous offers were
warmly discussed. The sale, therefore,
took on a very interesting aspect, and
the attendance of interested and disinter
ested business and professional men was
quite large and representative.
The bidding at first seemed slow, but
soon it became lively and animated,when
finally the entire property was sold for
the snug little sum. as staled, to the
highest bidder—Mr. Goodman. So much
for the purchase. Now tor a brief sketch
of tbe successful purbhaser.
Mr. Aaron L. Goodman, who is now
coming along toward his thirtieth mile
stone, is the. son of Mr. and Mrs. H.
Goodman, of this city. In his youth he
was a student in theology and preparing
for the ministry, when an instinct and
inclination for the business world asserted
itself and he entered in the now large
business of his brother, Abram Good
man, in Laurel, Del. He remained there
until the tall ot 1895 when, coming here
on a visit to bis parents, he located in
business at the corner of Market Space
and Cornhill street, where he established
a reputation for integrity and enterprise.
At first struggling, due to rather modest
means and bard times, but finally re
warded with success for endurance, toil
and reliability. Mr. Goodman bas been
doing business at tbe same stand for
neatly eight years, but his business has
developed to such proportions that the
once large and commodious store-room
is now utterly inadequate for the conduct
of his extensive business.
Mr- Goodman's ultimate plans are to
erect on tbe site be purchased a modern
r xtensive building for the conduct of a
first class up-to-date department store,
that will complete the already impressive
business square in the "Broadway” of
Atinapolis. It is worthy to note, by the
way, that Mr. Goodman is a believer of
the believers in the value of advertising,
and attributes part ot bis success to com
municating with the people (trough tbe
columns ol tbe locsl press. adv.
