vice, a bronze tablet will be pre
sented by the Martha Reed Chapter

emblem will be in commemoration of

ator William James Bryan, of Flor
ida, who died in office at Washing
ton, and whose brother now repre
sents Florida in the same capacity.
Named by His Request.
A bronze tablet in memory of Sen-
jator Will Bryan will be particularly
appropriate on the dreadnaught Flor
ida because it was at the request of

velt, who was most friendly with the
young Florida statesman, had the
tighter named for this state. The
letter dictated by Senator Bryan a
few days before his illness, asking
that one of the new battleshipB which
had just been ordered constructed,
be named "The Florida," Is one of
the most eloquent pieces of literature
from the pen of a Floridian and the
president complied with Its request
almost Immediately. The letter was
published in the Pensacola News at

spirit of it travels over the house,
electrifies every member of the band
and makes people in the audience
shout with pleasure and tremble with
appreciation. The Asheville Citizen

triumph last night at the auditorium.
Peerless leader proves claim that he
has the finest baud In the world.
Proving beyond all question his
claim to superiority the great Crea
tore delighted two large audiences at
the Auditorium yesterday afternoon
and evening. It is no exaggeration
to state that no band artist who has
ever visited Asheville created such a
lasting and favorable impression as
did this magnificent leader of a
matchless organization. While Cre
atore has mannerisms decidedly in
dividual, he Is magnetic and pas
sionate and his fervent spirit com
municated itself to his players and
to his audience. His band rendered
a musical program of the highest
