LOYAL ORDER Of MOOSE
Mas Installation Of Officers —Those
Fleeted —New Order Booming
Deputy Supreme Organizer James
J. Keogh and the following gentle
men from the Baltimore Lodge,
Messrs. W. H. Carrigan, J. G. Fergu
son, Albert Duckett, O. G. Stanley
and Dr. Wilkshire, installed the fol
lowing members into Annapolis Lodge
No 2‘JC of the Loyal Order of Moose
Sunday, July 3, at Red Men's Hall.
The officer for the year are as fol
lows: G. J. Gephardt, past dictator;
C. K. Werntz, dictator; Wm. O. Pick,
vice-dictator; E. K. Perry, prelate;
!C. C. Dulin, treasurer; Jesse Med
ford, secretary; D. V'. Miller, inner
guard; Edward Suftin, outer guard;
W. H. W. Taylor, sergeant-at-arms;
Dr. L. B. Henkle, physician. Trus
tees G. J. Gebhardt, William En
gelke, G. C. Sunderland.
The new lodge is now on in force
and the increase in membership shows
how faithfully everyone is working
for the benefit of the order, as noth
ing is left undone, and everyone is
now bringing in new members. The
lodge started with fifty-seven mem- ,
bers and now they are nearly up in the
eighties, showing what a grand suc
cess the members are making.
Every single or married man should
join and make Annapolis Lodge one
of the biggest in the order. W r ith
everybody’s help no doubt it will be.
The charter is open to new mem
bers for ninety days, and the fee for
joining is $6 at present, so when the
charter is closed it will be $25.
Try now to be a member. The next
meeting will be at Red Men's Hall,
this city.
DIED OE TYPHOID
Litde Boy Succumbs To Disease At The
hospital
Joseph A. Lee, Jr., age 7 years,
son of Joseph A. and Minnie Chaney
Lee of South River, this county, died
yesterday at the Emergency Ilos- ;
pital.
Death was due to typhoid fever and
a little sister of the dead boy is now
ill of the same disease in the same
hospital. The remains were prepared
for burial by Undertakers Chaney &
Suite, who had charge of the funeral
arrangements this aftenoon.
The funeral will take place at 4
o’clock from St. Mary’s Church.
The pallbearers will be Walton
Childs, Paul and Walters Chaney and
Bryan Claude. The remains will be
interred in St. Mary’s cemetery.
No More Mixed l-'ights
In connection with the crusade j
which has already started against
the showing of the moving pictures
of the Jelfries-Johnson prize light at
Reno, and the demoralizing effect of
the result with its race riots and
murders. Mayor Strange, has some
thing to say.
Following the Kirk-Gabriel light at j
the Colonial Theatre on Monday, i
when the returns from the Reno ring
side were announced, Mayor Strange 1
said that the affair between th e j
wlute and colored sailor in the Colo
nial was the last boxing affair be
tween represenatives of the two j
races that would be held in Annapo
lis while he was the head of the city j
! government.
This stand has met with universal
favor, and it is not unlikely that the 1
Annapolis city authorities will join
Baltimore and other cities in pro- i
hibiting the showing of the moving
pictures of the fight here.
If you want to enjoy a pleasant
day go with the Chamber of Commerce
to Cambridge on July 13th.

MIDSHIPMAN SHERMAN M. NASON
DEAD HERO HONORED
Full Navi I Funeral For M Jship
man Sherman M. Na:on
SAD RITES AT NEWPORT
Lafjre (ladi-ring Of Friends Al The Sim
ple Service In Trinity Church New
port R. I.
The funeral of Midshipman Sh- ; -
man M. Nason, first class. United
States Naval Academy, who was
drowned here a week ago yesterday,
was solemnized Saturday at noon at
Trinity Church, Newport, R. I , and
the remains were accorded all the
honors of his rank.
Throughout the formalities there
was great solemnity, and many citi- j
zens did honor to the dead, who never
knew the young man, but were touch
ed by the story of the sudden break
ing of his life thread. Along the
streets,as well as within the church at
Newport, were to be seen many of
his former classmates in the Newport
schools,and at the church were a num
ber of naval officers and members of
their families.
Two carriages were filled with flow- •
ers, several pieces coming from An
napolis and one from the Rogers High i
School class of 1907. The midship- !
man rifle team not being sent to New
port, the bearers were old Newport ]
schoolmates, with one exception. !
The body bearers were eight boy i
petty officers from the Training Sta
tion. The naval escort was in com- i
mand of Lieut. F. T. Evans and com- !
prised the Training Station band and
a full company of apprentice seamen.
They came over from the Training
Station in boats at 11:30, disembark
ing at the Government Landing and
marching up Church street to the
church entrance, where they awaited
the arrival of the body.
Rev. Stanley C. Hughes, rector of
Trinity Church, Newport, R. 1., was
the officiating clergyman. The vio
let hangings were of course used,
and the mourning for the late Bishop
McVickar lent added solemnity to the
occasion. The church was well filled.
Before the service Organist H. A.
Casey rendered a musical program,
which included Chopin’s “Funeral
March. " Just before the body was
brought in, “Nearer My God, to
Thee,” was played by the Training
Station band, stationed in the church
yard.
The funeral party was led by the
clergy and the six honorary bearers
Benjamin M. McLyman, John Hass,
Herbert P. Crowley, H. D. Schmidt,
Norman T. Fludder and Midshipman
E. Gladstone Haas, the last-named in
uniform. The coffin, wrapped in the
American flag covered with floral
tributes, was borne by eight appren- j
tices and followed by the immediate
family.
The chant, “Lord, let me know
mine end,” was sung by the choir 1
consisting of Mrs. Lena Carroll, Mrs.
Sadie Bailey King, Mr. Daniel U.
Boone and Mr. Nelson R. Duby.
The lesson, I Corinthians xv :20, was
read by Rev. Mr. Hughes and
1 “Nearer, My God, to Thee” was
sung. After the Apostles’ Creed
and appropriate prayers “The Strife
is o’er, the Battle Done” was sung
and the funeral party left the church,
the strains of “Nearer, My God, to
Thee,” being again heard in the
church yard.
After the church ceremony the body l
was again saluted as it was brought
out of the church and placed in the
hearse, and then came the escort to
' the Island cemetery, where the in
terment took place. In Thames street
the escort swung into column of sec
tions and maintaine this formation so
far as possible in the absence of a I
previous clearing from the street of
standing vehicles. On the march up
Thames street the band played
3 Chopin's “Funeral March” and at
the grave, following the committal
. service of the church, a bugler sound
j ed taps, and the escort fired the usual
j three volleys over the grave.
. Midshipman Smith, son of Captain
• Smith, of the War College, was the
’ only other representative from An
napolis present, and be went unoffi
cially,happening to be in town. Sev-
eral officers from the Training Station
l were iu attendance and Pay Director
e Goodwin Hobbs, (retired), was also
present.

Shot In The Face
I Mr. Adam Shipley, of Harmon’s, in
this county, who was accidentally
shot while trying on the Fourth of
July to stop two colored employee*
from fighting, was in Annapolis yes
terday. The ball passed under his
lower lip, just grazing along his face.
ECHOES OF THE ElliHT
Race Riots Even where As Result Of
Prizefight On The Fourth
As a result of the prize fight on
July 4 at Reno. Nev., the following
may be summed up:
Sixteen dead, hundreds of others
injured, many of them seriously
There*were serious race riots and at
tempted lynchings in New York,
I'hiladelpha, Washington, Norfolk,
\ a., Roanoke, Ya., several towns in
West Virginia. Atlanta, New Or
leans, St. Louis, Moundsville, 111.,
Plainville, Conn., Pueblo, Col., and
in dozens of other cities and towns,
including Los Angeles, Cal., which
is Jeffries’ home.
It is believed that the race feeling
engendered will cause more or less
serious trouble for weeks to come.
More than three hundred marines of
the navy who had watched the re
turns of the fight marched through
the streets of Norfolk Ya , hunting
negroes all night, and after the chief
of police found that he was powerless,
he sent to the navy yard and secured
aid.
Two persons were shot in cold blood
by negroes as a result of the Fourth
of July celebration in Washington.
Five children were setting off fire
works in tront of their home Monday
night when a surrey, with two negro
couples, drove past.
A woman in the vehicle shot a re
volver toward the children and a bullet
passed through the body of 9-year-old
Thelma Devere and lodged in the
shoulder of Mrs. Clark S. Enoch,
who was standing on a neighboring
porch. The child will die The
negroes were recognized and their
arrest is expected.
ANTI PICTURE CRUSADE
Governor Crothers Asked To Join Move
ment For Supression Of Big f ight
Films
Governor Crothers was appealed to
today to stop the contemplated exhib
iting of moving pictures of the Jef
fries-Johnson fight within the State
of Maryland. He was asked to join
a country-wide movement of state ex
ecutives in a crusade having this pro
hibition as its object.
The appeal came in a long tele
gram from William S. Shaw, of Bos
ton, the general secretary of the
United Society of Christian Endeav
orers. The telegram received at the
Executive office in the State House
was at once forwarded by Chief Clerk
Hardy to Governor Crothers’ Balti
more office for the Executive’s ac
tion.
Mr. Shaw, after calling attention
to the deaths and race rioting follow
ing the announcement of the fight re
sult in all parts of the country, pre
dicts that this result will be nulti
pled many fold by moving picture ex
hibitions.
The telegram then asks him to
join other Governors in the prohibi
tion of these “demoralizing shows
to save our young people.”

AGAINST THE SCHOOL HOARD
Action Potions Ruling 01 State Hoard Of
Education And Resignation Ot Six
Trustees
Judge Janies R. Urashears this aft
ernoon signed a petition for a man
damus against the Hoard of County
School Commissioners directing them
to show cause before July 12 why
they should not at once re-appoint six
members to the Hoard of Trustees
of the Annapolis public schools. The
petitioners in the request for the
mandamus are Dr. Louis H. Henkel.
John F. Strange and Robert Moss.
The petition for mandamus follows
the resignation of the six trustees of
the Annapolis schools yesterday on
account of the ruling of the State
Hoard of Education, to which the
county hoard had referred the matter
of the validity of the present method
of appointing trustees under Chapter
275 of the Acts of the General As
sembly.
The State board ruled that in
amending the local school law this
had been repealed and that as a mat
ter of fact there should be only three
male trustees named instead of six.
| three of whom have in the past been
women.
The petition filed today charges
that this is illegal and a nullity
claiming that the law in question is
still unrepealed and in full force.
Ihe chapter in contest provided for
the appointment of a board of trustees
to consist of three men one Demo
crat, one Republican and one Prohi
bitionist and three women.
