Charles J. Perkins, Cripple Creek.
Edward C. Stimson, Colorado Springs.
R. C. Thayer, Colorado Springs.

A list of the proposed members has been sent out to each member of the association, and you are doubtless familiar with these names. A vote must be taken by ballot. The Secretary will pass the ballots around. A recess of ten minutes will be taken, to allow members to canvass among themselves the proposed names.
After the recess had been taken, the chair appointed Horace G. Lunt and Ralph Talbot as tellers, who immediately proceeded to collect the ballots and canvass the same.
Horace G. Lunt:
Mr. President, all the names balloted upon are elected.
The chair will appoint Judge Yeaman and Judge Gunnell as a committee to notify the new members of their election.
I am requested by Judge Lunt to say that the privileges of the El Paso Club, at Colorado Springs, are extended to the members of the association.
