Bat Tbree Ctunses in Board of DI> rectors—SaiUh Be-electcd The annual moeting of the stock holders of the Allen county Fair As, soctation which was held this after- ndon in the fanners room at the court houee was a very formal and harmonious affair. This year's fair, proving as It did a success In ever>' particular, offered but little opportunity for any movement to made radical changes in the conduct of UJe fair. Last year several ministers were present and entered a protest against - allowing pooling privileges. This matter was not a^i issue this afternoon, indicating that the betting this year, if. there was any, was so conducted tliat it was not offensive to tha patrons of the fair. The meeting was not largely attended this afternoon. President J. A. Wheeler called tlje meating to order and the .first matter that came up was the formal report of the secretarj-. The report was adopted. The treasurer's report, given by F. E. SmtOi, brought forth smiles from those present, as it showed that the fair cleared 1640 this year, a larger snin that had been cleared for years. Of this Amount $540 was paid on th> note held by the A,llen county' banl:. The note is for approximately IllOiO. If the fair next year proves as much of a; success as this year the indeht- edttess will' soon be cancelled. The election of directors then oc- curi"ed. The following were elected: J. fL. Wheeler, Ralph Drake, T. J. Anderson, Joe Eastwood, Lew Ho'rvllle. Kranic Beattie, Afark Hilles; Prank mgh and John Laury. With three ex- cepttoQS. the board has the same per-: jOMiljJ »8 laist year. Fourteen naxufs ~ weir^. ptaeed in nomination. ' Immeiitt- atflljr ^er • the election the directors went into a meeting at which the oQeers wltl'be elected. It is said that the same offlcers will be elected. J. A. Wheeler Is president and Frank Smith secretary. This afternoon the atockholders voted thanks to Mr. SttiUh for his etncient ser\'ices during, the . year. The directors will probably discuss some contemplated improvements for the fair grounds this afternoon. (t was learned just before going to press that the following officers for were elected; President. J. A. Wheeler; Vice President. L. E. Horville; Treasurer, T. Ji Anderson; Secretary, Frank Smith; Assistant Secretary, Frank L. Travis. [The only change in the ofRcers is in the treSMirer, Mr. Anderson succeeding D. P. Northrup who decljned reelection. The office of assistant secretary is c new one. It was created In order to relieve the secretarj* of too much work. LODGE HAD OYSTER SUPPER.

Topeka, Dec. 10.— A secret confer ence was held at the state house today. It was attended :»y W. H. Haskell, warden of the penitentiary; Jas. U. Nation, state auditor; Fred S. Jackaon, attorney general, and Mark Tuliy, state treasurer. When the conference was ended the men who took part In It announced that the conference waa in regard to paying actual cash to pen^teivtl^uT employees In- Btead jif maklnff tpayments by checks. Devsl^ments, whlcn appeal later, tende<f.'to show, however!. that this waa a very Incidental matter, and waa hardly discussed at all. It is reported that the real business of the conference was the selling of Oklahoma warrants by some officlalii, who turned the cash over to the state and kept the premiums. OkUihoma warrants given in payment for keeping prisoners in tJic Kansas penitentiary are at a premium as they draw iateres!. It is known that some of the warrants were sold recently and the state has never received the premiums. It has received only the actual cash value of the war rant. 1 1; IS OUIET IN NEVADA Bot^oL KeyaaW T)ii|iks Oft TiUBble \m hbgi» Whea^Mi^nea; Are . > ' ^Opeaedr EVANS IS ALL READY CHIEF OF AMEBICA'S GBEAT FLEET ASSITMES COMMAND.

Just as soon as word was received in Chicago yesterday that the national committee had selected this city for the convention, engineers and architects were told to begin work on plans for alterations, which had been' under consideration. As a result the big structure will be remodeled so as to seat 15,000 persons. 3.000 more" than the minimum requirements of the party leaders. The building is unique not only for its seating capacity,* but for its lights acoustic properties and ventilation. At the south end of the Colisum proper is an annex of two floors, either one of which Is large enough to ac­ comodate all the delegates. The! upper hall of th3se two has galleries under the east and west ends, beneath which are rooms which may be used for committee work. The Changes to be Made. The ordinary seating capacity of the great main hall is. 10.000. This can be increased to 12,000 without overcrowding, but present arrange-, meats leave too much waste space be^ neath the galleries which encJrc'e the main floor. It is proposed tq-ntll- Ire this space by the construction of hanging galleries which will accomo date 3.000 spectators. • This will give a greater seating capacity than has been available at any previous nalioa- al convention.
