The Elks lodge of this city have
under consideration the building of
an elegant new home. Plans and
drawings for this new home has ar
rived and are being inspected, and the
hope is»entertained by members of the
order that the erection of this build
ing will take place this year. The
building is to be located on fifth street
on lots which are now owned by the
Elks. While it will not be the most
expensive building of its kind in the
state, it is believed that it will be one
of the handsomest exclusive Elk
homes in the entire northwest, and
would be a great credit to the city.
The building committee of the order
have he matter well in hand and much
Interest is being shown. The esti
mated cost of such a building is $30,
000, which according to the prelimi
nary plans and specifications would
be a very reasonable figure.
The style of the building will be
Colonial with the portico of terra cotta
the front of tapesried brick and the
•Ides of pressed brick. Two large ve
randas adorn the front. Everything
about the building will be absolutely
fire proof with as little wood as possi
ble. The floors, except in the ball
room, will be tile. The ground space
is 42 145 feet and the building may
be said to be three story, as the base
ment will be finished. In the base
ment will be located the dining room
with adjoining private rooms, the con
necting doors such as may be swung
back to from a banquet room 90x20
feet for special occassions. In the base
ment will be 'the billiard room, bowl
in galley and kitchen. A sub-base
ment for the heating and ventilating
plants will be provided. The system
of ventilation changes the air iff the
larger rooms every ten minutes.
In the rear of the second floor is the
magnificent ball room, reaching up
through two stories. This room will
be 40x76 feet and elegantly finished.
The system of lighting to be used is
worthy of comment. The apparatus
will be invisible and the effect will be
that of one blaze of brilliant, yet sub
dued light which, with the aid of re
flectors, will be cast through the room
apparently radiating from no particu
lar places. On the first floor are also
the ladies' reception room, the steward
Toom and other ante rooms. On the
third floor will be a number of sleep
ing rooms ail equipped with shower

Washington, D. C.,Jan. 18.—That
the District of Columbia would fare
as well under prohibition as North
Dakota, was the declaration of Sen
ator Gronna in the senate today.
"Prohibition has been in force in
North Dakota since it was admitted to
the union," he said. "The state has
prospered, and the fact that no liquor
could be sold within its borders has
had a great deal to do with its busi
ness welfaer.
"It is true that some liquor has been
brought into the state, but the amount
has been so small that its introduction
has affected only a small proportion of
our citizens.
"If prohibition should be applied to
the District of Columbia, as I believe I
it should, the result would be equally
beneficial. I hope a law prohibiting
the sale of liquor in the capital will be
passed shortly."
