Investigates Proposition M., I Wnite Cloud Tribe, No. 4., Improv ed Order of Red Men, held an un usually enjoyable meeting on Monday evening during which definite steps were taken toward providing a lodge hall and club home for the tribe. The plan, which was conceived by W. J. Tiffany and enthusiastically in dorsed by every member of the tribe, is to erect a second story on the build ings on Second avenue east owned by B. F. Wenz and F. C. Hauge and to use the whole area, thus made, for the home of the tribe. The building now occupied by Mr. Wenz is seventy-five feet in length, while that owned by Mr. Hauge is about sixty. The com bined width of the two buildings is forty-seven feet. Mr. Hauge is will ing to build an addition on the rear of his building to make it of the same dimensions as Mir. Wenz's structure and there is a possibility that each gentleman will exteud his building to a depth of| eighty or ninety feet. Each is willing|to do this as it will af ford an extension that is greatly need ed by each in his fast increasing busi ness. It would also give White Cloud Tribe a larger' fiOor area" than any other lodge in the city. In the event that the second story is erected, the tribe will use it as a council chamber, fa club room, where members of the tribe will be permit ted,to go whenever they please to play games.,or read, a|danee hail and a gymnasium "xhergymnasium wiii be made a special feature and will supply a need tliBft has l^ng been felt in the city. kTS 1 The- trlw will linance the under taking, if possibly but should it be unable to do so ^t may invite some lodge of good standing to enter into the proposition with it. It is the plan to have the members of the tribe form a corporation and subscribe to as many as shares as each is able. It is thought that there is very little dan ger of«any disability to raise the amount of monj y, that will be re- A committee of three, Consisting of W. J, Tiffany^ u. F. Wenz and J. H. Holmes, was appointed to make ar rangem£nts with an architect for a set of plans and (#eclficationsof the building and for an estimate of the expense.
