"When this organization was mueh smaller I was a member myself, and attended one convention as a delegate. However, an ordfer was passed by the organization, aud I believe It was a good one, that politicians be kept out, when appearing in an official capacity at least.

I.(Oud applause again greeted this declaration. "Wo have to raise that $800,000," continued Mr. Stewart, "and In addition there will be strong appeals for the Ited Cross. It is our first duty to support the patriotic fund, the Red Cross, and the land settlement for soldiers, everything that pertains to bringing this war to a successful fin ish. In conclusion! I extend my wish: ea to you for the success of your con vention.' Acting Mayor Ruttle expressed re gret that Mayor Costello could not be present, saying that he h'lmselE was not a good speaker, while .Mayor Cos tollo was quite an orator.
