Decatur. III., May 3. (Special.)
The state camp or the M. W. A. today
endorsed Maj. C. Hawes, of Rock
Island, for reelection as'head clerk of
the order, and George W. Reilly, of
Danville, for director. The opposition
expected against Mr. Reilly was tame,
and did not develop in the convention.
The camp reelected E. D. Reynolds, of
Rockford, as state consul, and J.
Freed, of Galesburg, as state clerk.
The matter was practically settled
last night and all the convention had
to do today was carry out the program.

As missionaries for the National

men on the journey will be guests of
the two railroads named. The first
stop was at Aurora, where the first of

to farmers that the proposed improve

to the interests of communities by se

traffic through the winter and spring
months, when there is a stagnation of
business occasioned by mud roads.
