GIVEN A RECEPTION
Mr. and Mr. E. E. Williams Receive
thetiood Will of Friends.
It has been known for some time that
Mr. and Mrs. E. . Williams expected
soon lo take their departure from Oregon
City and to take up their home In
another state. Last Wednesday about
200 or more of their friends gathered at
Willamette hall to tender them a hearty
farewell and to express their good will
in no uncertain manner. The business
and social elements were represented
to testify to the high esteem in which
residents of more than eight years were
held by those with whom they came in
The early part of the evening was
largely spent in social chat interspersed
with vocal and instrumental selections
by a number of ladies and gentlemen
while others engaged in different parlor
games. About it) o'clock air. and airs.
Williams, with the members of the re
ception committee, were ushered to a
position in front of the rostrum, where,
on behalf of their friends Mr. Franklin
T. Grilhth presented the honored couple
with an elegantly framed picture ot
Mount Hood in the following well
"My Friends: We are here tonight
for the purpose of testifying, by our pres
ence, in slight degree, to the esteem in
which we hold those in honor of whom
we have gathered. At such a time it is
fitting that we say to them, and in so
saying I believe I express the sentiments,
not only of all those w ithin the sound
of my voice, but also ot all those within
the confines of our city, whose privilege
and pleasure it baa been, during the
years our departing menus nave re
sided here, so well and favorably to
know tbem, the husband as a man o'
unimpeachable honor and integrity,
business associate, friend and company;
the wife, most estimahle lady, as one of
thejbrigliest jewels in our social firma
ment, that they go not hence to be for
gotten, but on the contrary we part from
them with deepest regret and reluctance
most sincere and we wish the land to
which they go may be for them full of
sunshine, milk and honey.
"I have been selected tonight to per
form a duty that is to me at once a source
of pleasure and regret ; to present to the
friends about to leave us some slight
token oi our high regard, not for its in
trinsic value, but to remind them that
they are leaving in this northwest corner
of the country, this place that was so
long called the jump-off of all civiliza
tion, some mends who lain would nave
reserved for them a place in their minds,
if not in their hearts.
"And now, my dear air and madam, it
becomes my pleasurable duty to present
to you this likeness ot that grand old
sentinel, placed by the Almighty to
guard oyer the destinies ot the people of
Oregon and to express to you our wish
that your heads may be as white as the
mantle of this old mountain 'ere good
fortune ceases to smile upon you."
Mrs. Williams thanked her iriends
briefly for the good will offering but Mr.
Williams was "speechless." Words
were not available in which to express
their thoughts, and the friends again
gathered around to once more grasp the
hands of those whose hospitality and
good fellowship they bad enjoyed for all
At this point light refreshments were
served followed by dancing and other
pleasuteable festivities during the re
mainder of the evening.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams xpect to leave
for Denison, Texas, next Wednesday
where they resided prior to coming
to Oregon City, taking with them, we be
lieve, the good will and esteem of all who
had the pleasure of their , acquaintance.
One of the most delightful parties ever
enjoyed by the young people of Oregon
City, was that given in honor of Miss
Ira Harrington's eighteenth birthday, at
the residence of her aunt, Mrs. . F.
Storey corner of Ninth and Taylor streets
Saturday evening, February 12th. The
parlors were beautifully decorated with
evergreens and house plants.
A number of beautiful presents were
received. Games and other amusements
were the order of the evening. One
game in which all were very much in
terested, was given pinning the nose on
a man. A prize was given to the one
who succeeded in pinning the nose in
the right place. Miss Ira Harrington
was the successful winner. The prize
was a beautiful bouquet of LaFrance roses.
After some time had been devoted to
games, a lunch of delicacfes was served
of which all heartily partook. The bill
of fare consisted of delirious ham sand
wiches, many yareties of cake, oranges,
bananas, and abundance of refreshing
lemonade. After playing "Good Night,"
the best wishes of all were bestowed
npon the younn hostess and thanking

they loved and for whom they dillgeutly
