The incoming delegates and convention visitors met by committees from Fort lodge No. 155, and escorted to headquarters as fast as they arrived yesterday.

Despite the heat, there was plenty of pep and enthusiasm in all the ses- sion of the day. The first gathering of the Elks was a business session held yesterday afternoon in the local Iqdge room, when the Noblesville and Martinsville degree teams competed in the initiation of a- class of six candidates. The Noblesville team car- ried off the honors in the ritualistic work. Last Night's Festivities. The program last night consisted of the opening banquet and parade with many visiting officials high in the order of the state present, on both occasions. The banquet was served in Elks hall, where a sea of the national colors and the flags of the allied nations transformed the auditorium and stage into a beautiful setting for the gathering. As was fitting, the Stars and Stripes, were given the place of honor, for the Elks base their "membership as American freeman upon their fealty to Old Glory. Maurice C. Niezer pre- sided as toastmaster and the wel- coming address was given by Mayor Cutshall..

Anderson opened up this aft- ernoon and admitted having killed Benadum but he declared he was in- i nocent of the Fort Wayne crime. He j said the only shooting scrape he ever was in other than the one here was at Bluefield, W. Va.. where a craps game ended in a free for all gun fight. Positive that she talked to the murderer of her fiance, Fred Holle, on the night of May 30, Miss Woen- ker returned home last night from Muncie with Sheriff Gillie, Detective Sergeants Rundell and Hall and the parents of Holle. The officers, too. are sure that the negro committed the crime and think that he will make a confession before many days. In an instant after hearing the negro speak. Miss Woenkcr said she was positive he was the man and she also identified the goggles and hood found on the negro as being the same worn by the slayer of Holle. It was learned night that An- derson and the white arrested with him after a battle with police following the Mune-le killing, had been in Fort Wayne on the night of Monday, June 9. they stopping at the Sam Bradshaw rooming house on Eureka street. It has not been learned, however, whether they had been here previous to that time. An- derson denied strongly to Miss Woen- ker and the local police that he had any connection with the crime here, but on their departure told them that they should see the Muncie jail clerk to-day. The officers believe that this was a hint that he might make a complete confession.
