Because th# mte In* of merchants, that had been called for the T>e Boto Hofei last night to consider way# and means of advancing th# .Merest# of the city in connection with the Elk#' Carnival and Htreet Fair, did not develop sufficient numbers, it w.s decided to repeat it to night. Nevertheless, those who were present expressed themselves very heartily In fa vor of the project, appreciative of the ad vantage * to he derived by the city from the carnival and anxious to do everything In their power to make the enterprise a success of the most pronounced de# ri|- tion. It wax only because a larger i*er oentage of tn#* merchant# of the city was not present, and not because of any In* k of enthusiasm on toe |rt of those who attended, that it was determined to hold a record meet.tig t* night To secure n full representation of ail business Inter ests • this rme lng a special effort will lie made to-day The nvff ing wan railed to order bs' Mr NiV. W Hfarr, of the Elk- Executive Com miftee. who st e*l its purpose. Mr B arr said that he regretted ex * e Singly that the attendance was not larg r and that h" was disk)|rpoinied that the merchants had n*t shown themselves willing to jestlfy by their mere presence and moral support their sympathy with an enterprise tha very one of them ought to approve. Two objects, said Mr. Starr, animated the Elks In the giving of the street fair. One w *# the replenishment of their chari ty fund, a fund that is distributed freely and liberally to recoqnixed charities In this and other cities, without dlsttn tlon to reed. The Elka ask nothing for them selves; their purpose is th** succor of the needy and distressed. The second object D the ad\ertisemenv of the htwuties and commercial advant ages of Havannah For five or six years, said Mr. ftiarr. Bavannah has fade*) to make an effort of this special kind to at tract the attention of the state, and the trade of the people of the section she ought to control. Her rivals, on the con trary are steadily and |* rsiatetntlv at work, ami the necessity of effort to main tain th# city # prestige I# evident to any one who will consider the situation. Mr Hlarr asked that Mr. I*. H. Levy tak* the choir and when a motion to this ef fect was put, it was carried without dis sent. Mr. Levy expressed his own regret at • he six** of the meeting and explained that he felt this to he due not to any la* k of Interest in the enterprise on th" part of th# merchants, but rather to the fact that the necessity and propriety of their at tendance had not been properly urged up on them He felt confident, he said, that were another meeting called and a full and representative attendance urged, It would te easily forthcoming Mr Sic Gard ner. secretary of the Retail Merchants* Association, added his assurance of his fellow merchants’ response to that of Mr. Levy, and his personal willingness to aid 'the project in any way in hi* i*ower. Mr. flagßs D. Benson, dire**tor general of the carnival, was called upon to explain his plans. Mr. Henson said that the pur pose of the earn val committee went far beyond the m* r* giving of series f en tertainments in the Park Extension. These had been arranged for. and they were the best of their kind. part of th* carni val features was already assured; the in terest ar.i co-o|*eration of the merchant# was essential to th** wider projects the committee entertained. A queen of ihe carnival, with her at tendant kHigots and ladies, a •oi m.iUoi fvetie, made as beautiful as gay costume and lights and flowers would per mb • floral parade, a tracks display, night pa geant#. Ilk* those of the Marili Gras, at New rl*n>. and other fr**e street enter tainment* of the tike character were m- Itided within the scope of the committee s plan.
