there is none among his brothers who

Mr. Mills thanked the grand lodge for

Of this sum $20,000 Is to be used for

Bedford Home Unsettled.
No further action was taken toward
the early erection of the new home at
Bedford, Va as was contemplated by
the grand lodge session at Atlantic
City last year. The question will re
main "on- the table" for the year. It
is believed that had It been presented
to the Portland convention It would
have met disapproval Inasmuch as the
Western delegates, who do not seem
to be in favor of a home at Bedford,
were In the majority. Next year when
the grand lodge meets at Rochester,
it is likely that the sentiment of the
convention will be expressed by the
Eastern delegates and it may be pos
sible to carry out the reconstruction
The grand lodge also appropriated
$20,000 to provide relief for Elks who
may be suffering from tuberculosis.
The money Is to be given into the
hands of the grand trustees and dis
tributed, by them at their discretion.
The proposed erection of a tuberculosis
sanitarium will receive further atten
tion at next year's Convention.

Reasons Not Given.
While the reasons for the request are
not given, there is no doubt that the
British Government is concerned in the
clause to grant free passage through
the canal to American vessels in coast
wise trade and the clause relating to
the passage of railroad-owned ships.
The Canadian railways are deeply con
cerned In both, and It Is thought that
some of the representations will be
mailt In their behalf.
The canal bill now is in the Senate
committee, with prospect of being soon
reported, and will then go to confer
ence with the House. Members of Con
gress feel that If any Panama legisla
tion Is to be had it must be at this ses
sion of Congress. The exigencies that
lave arisen as the canal approaches
