Carl I Ernst, 39, brew master for the Wiedemann Brewing Co. died yesterday at his residence in the Alhambra Flats, East Third-st.

The Elks will hold a special meeting tonight to take action on the death and will meet tomorrow night at the Elks Home and will march in a body to the Ernst home, where the services of the order will be conducted by the officers of the lodge.  The funeral services will be held Wednesday at 9 am at the Immaculate Conception Church.
