Vesterday's meetings were full of
business. The election of ollicers was
the most important and the installa-
tion of ollicers last night was very im-
jiressive and witnessed by ono of the
largest gatherings during the entire
Mrs. Christina llokey the retiring
president installed the newly elected
ollicers and performed her duties ad-
mirably. She was ably assisted by
the other retiring ollicers.
A most interesting feature of the
occasion was the presentation of a
magnificent and cotsly jewel to Mrs.

Tishomingo on behalf of the Rebekah
Assembly. In making the presenta-
tion Mrs. Shearer referred in admir-
ably chosen words to the excellent

Tulsa has been proud of the oppor-
tunity to entertain ' so many ladies
from every point in the Territory
and the ladies without an exception
are glad to have been here. They are
delighted with the town and the
courtesies extended them and regret
exceedingly they were not included in

spent a strenuous day in Grand T-odge
yesterday afternoon and evening.
In the afternoon the session win oc-
cupied principally with the discussion
on the setting apart of $20000 for an
addition to the Orphans' Home at
Checotah. After the matter had been
thrashed over for two or three hours
a vote was taken and resulted in a
victory for the friends of the proposi-

ed to look after and direct tlwj build-
ing of the addition to the home.
The discussion delayed the members
one hour so that it was late when the
delegates got started on their drive
around the city. To the credit of the
citizens be U stated that pretty nearly
every one who had a vehicle placed it
at the disposal of the Grand Lodge
so that the 1ig majority enjoyed a
very pleasant ride! They saw what
Tulsa had in the shape of resources
and were amazed exceedingly.
The drive lasted a couple of hours
and greatly rested every one after the
arduous labor they had been enduring
and fitting them for the installing cere-
monies in the evening.
The installing f officers was per-
formed by Past Grand Master Par.
kinson of Wagoner who carried it
through in admirable manner. As
in the Rebekah Assembly and as is
customary in the Grand Lodge a
splendid Past Master's jewel was pre-
sented to retiring Grand Master P. F.
LaKayette of Checotah. The presen-
tation speech' was made by Sovereign
Representative Stillwell 11. Russell of
Ardniore one of the linest speakers
and best lawyers in the territory lie
enthused the brethren as he dwelt up-
on the excellencies possessed by the
retiring officer to whom he paid a
tribute no( often heard in lodge meet-
ings. Mr. LaKayette was too overcome t
reply. The tears coursed each other
down his cheeks as he stammered his
thanks and thus was brought to a
close this most successful session of
the Grand Lodge of the I. 0. 0. F.
By tonight the city will be empry of
the guests whose visit was so pleas-
ant and profitable to Tulsa.

SHAFFT'S OILERS SHUT OUT
WEBB CITY YESTERDAY 3-0. N
ALL DONE IN THE FOURTH
Second Game Faster than the First-
Manager Lifted One Over Right
In a game which was characterized
by several sensational field plays and
a home run by Shan't with a man on
second the Oilers yesterday shut out
the Spiders from Webb City by a
score of 1 to 0. The locals made good
with three double plays which enmo
at the right time to prevent serious
consequences and hit with such avid-
ity that Webb was forced again to
double up on delivery boys. Ole 01c-
son in the sixth broke the camel's
back with a three-bagger tiuil Mere-
dith succeeded Shancr as the central
figure of Missouri's galaxy. Shaner
was bit all over the lot during the
first six spasms and the subsequence
There was nothing doing in the way
of results until the fourth when Bate'
slugged the sphere sufficiently to en-
title him to a quarter of a bean. While
Miner was jollying Shaner with the
shillelagh he swiped another quarter.
Having placed Brother Bates where he
wanted him Miner transacted busi-
ness aggressively and promptly'' add-
ing a two-base hit to his bank account
and scoring Bates. Immediately af-
ter this Manager Shafft stepped se-
renely in front of the back stop and
humming "Home Sweet Home "with
a south side upper-cut lost the ball
in the clouds hanging over the right
field fence. That was all there was
to it. The game might just as well
have concluded at that point but was
continued probably in order to allow
Bates to distinguish himself by get-
ting under an almost iniossibIe one
in center and the Spiders' official at
the three-quarter tist to hook a tor-
rid one right off the slapstick with
his left mitt.
Selby as dictator controlled his
subjects admirably and got dust in
his eyes only a couple of times divid-
ed equally between both teams.
The third of this series of exhibition
games is being played today.
