In fully explaining the status of affairs which brought about the result it might be Well to let the representatives of the baud Tell their own Story. Arthur Foulk late Leader of the baud discussed the matter with a news representative yesterday. It seems to be the old trouble which stated in a nut Shell is that the town fails to support the band in any adequate Way and that it has la eau Able to keep its head above water Only after a hard struggle and at the expenses of personal sacrifice by its members. Or. Foulk stated that if the baud were furnished with quarters and was thus relieved of running expenses the members could very easily stand the loss of time required for practice Etc. In the past rent for room fuel Aud Light has averaged some twelve dollars per month. To meet the running expenses the members of the baud have always faced the alternative of reaching into their pockets and making a personal contribution or of maintaining a series of dances or of giving their time Ami labor in some other Way to raise the Money needed. Either born of the dilemma imposed a Burden upon the band members which they feel they should not be asked to boar. One year ago the band met expenses by giving a series of dances in the armory during the Winter hut or. Foulk stated that in Many cases with the members this meant the expenditure or what was equal the loss of Money. Some by playing at night were incapacitated for work next Day Aud Laid off of that account while others who worked at night in assisting the hand were unable to fill their places in the Mill. The experience of the whole was so unsatisfactory that a luring last summer the members with common consent decided to repudiate the a lances. At the same time the members were not willing to make themselves responsible for the re no a a a a. A a. It Bunin <1 Tiitu meant that Reese would have to come from some other source. Last fall the members placed themselves clearly on record As unwilling to drag along in the old Way any longer and declared As an ultimatum that unless the town came to the bands res Cue to the extent of liquidating the Cost of rent Light Aud fuel the band would give up the struggle. Or. Foulk said the baud took up irs quarters in the Lotier building opposite the Post office and for a couple of Mouths conducted practice there. Meanwhile there was no indication that the Public intended to respond favourably and then to use or. Foulks own terse expression a the baud decided to this does not imply that the baud has gone out of existence. Or. Foulk says the members can not see their Way Clear to continue at the expense of so much personal sacrifice but that if the townspeople will come to their Rescue and help them out a Little they will be glad to resume business at the old stand. He takes the View that if the matter were properly taken up the Money needed for running expenses could be very easily raised by popular subscription it would not require a very Large contribution from our business a Cople to raise the comparatively Small sum needed. Besides some person might be found generous enough to Grant the band use gratuitously of quarters suitable for practice. Meanwhile the band has no plans for tie future the members Are simply waiting. Elks elect officers. At its regular meeting held 011 monday Uig lit. Danville Lodge no. 754, b. P. O. Elks elected officers for the ensuing year.

A number of the members of Danville Lodge will accompany the Delegate to the grand Lodge meeting patients sensational escape persons living in the Vicinity of the Hospital grounds yesterday afternoon were startled by the appearance of an Odd apparition in the form of a nearly nude Man making his Way Down Over the Long switch leading from the Hospital to the d. L. Amp w. Railroad. Among others who saw him soon after leaving to la Pital Gate were Clyde Swank Ami Theodore Poeth who were engaged in hauling hides from Hoffman a Sia uglier House Uear by to the i. L. Amp w. Station. The two Young men were returning with an empty Wagon and it required Only a moment for them to take in the situation Aud to realize that a patient was making his escape from the Hospital they managed to get word to Harry Piile. Who was Busy at the Slaughter House and then hurried to intercept the Man. Coming up to him they re Quested him to Stop which lie was very slow to do. Or. Swank then caught hoi i of him hut the us Fortus ate Man put up a Stout resistance. At this juncture just As or. Piile came to their Aid. William Kester happened along who assisted or. Swank to hold the patient. The poor fellow was a bed patient who had escaped from the infirmary. All that he wore was a shirt and barefooted Aud bareheaded lie made his Way Down Over the rough Railroad track in the Chilly March atmosphere. He was really a pitiable object. Or. Piile asked him what ii was doing there and where he was going. He replied that his family had sent for him Aud that he was going Home. Of course he was taken Back to the Hospital at once. He ouly feebly resisted As he was loaded to the truck Wagon and hauled Back to a the institution. Just How the Man managed to make his escape could not be Learned to a certainty last night. According to one Story he escaped from the building via the dumb waiter which took him into the basement out of which lie could easily pass unnoticed. Another Story had it that he broke Oue of the windows and forced his body out Between the bars. The latter Story the men who made the capture think is the most plausible As Oue of the Bare limbs of the escaped patient was Cut or scratch ing held it Denver 15th, next. Colo. About.
