Senator Lodge, republican, replied
with a demand that any Investigation

"The body of an Innocent child,
floating dead on the water, the vic

a more tragic spectacle than an un

hot fight over questions that might
come up, prominent stock owning;
members of the Carter Lake club
attended the annual meeting of
stockholders of the club last evenlnf
at Hotel Loyal. They were consid
erably surprised, when the meeting
proved very harmonious, and every
thing went off according to schedule.
A clash of Ideas had been expected en
the election of three new directors, a
proposed new club house, the allowance
of compensation to Trustee, Treasurer
and Director A. P. Whltmore, and other
questions. However, the whole sffalr
was m peaceful and harmonious that
ths stockholders did not "mix'' en a
single point. Secretary Dave Christie
alone had fifty proxies in his pocket for
use If necesssry, but ths expected emer
gency did not ariso and he kept them in
his pocket and took them home without
us"ng them at all.
A. P, Whltmore- was unanimously re
elected a director by acclamation. R. C.
Rtrahlow and Albert Rdholm were alao
sleeted directors by acclamation, to take
the places of Frank V. Waaver and
