BIG DINNERS FOR
Thanksgiving Feasts at Char
3ABIES NOT OVERLOOKED
Tiny Tuts Do Full Justice to Kousb
Tin-key ami Its Accompani
ments Small Hoys ami
If tin- true measure of a child's Thanks
K'Vintr enjoyment is the quantity of
traditional turkey consumed and
the zest with which it is eaten, then
nowhere in Portland was the holiday
more heartily observed than in the vari
ous benevolent institutions. In each and
very ono of these refuges the 111 tie
people sat down to bountifully laden
hoards and ate turkey, cran
berry sauce, pumpkin and mince pies
and all the "Irimmin's" with as much,
if not more, relish than the more fortu
nate youngsters who have never known
anything hut a good home.
Thanksgiving was indeed a feastday
for them and they did full justice to all
its traditions. The infants at the Baby
Home, the children of the Hoys' and
Chis' Aid Society and the Children's
louie and the young girls of the Florence
Critlentnn Refuge Home all enjoyed
themselves to the utmost one might say
to their fullest capacity.
The tiny tots at the Baby Home were
too young to understand the reasons for
the observance of Thanksgiving lay. but
li.ey were old enough to realize that a
Thanksgiving feast was not something
that could be enjoyed every day. There
arc lti babies at the Home and PI of
them were old and strong enough to sit
at the tables. For more than an hour
they literally stuffed themselves with the
good, old New Kngland bird, roasted to a
turn, and the many other good things
that go to make up a regulation Thanks
When they were seated around the ta
bles awaiting the feast, they knew that
something unusual was about to happen,
but they went into spasms of delight
when the roast turkeys were brought in
on the huge platters.
Thought It Huge Chicken.
"(h! oh! oh!, see the big rooster!"
screamed a little girl, as she clapped
her hands together. She had never be
fore seen a turkey and she imagined it
was a. gigantic chicken.
In the afternoon the babies played in
the big nursery and were given a plenty
of nuts and candies. Then they were
bundled into their little cots early In the
evening as happy as happy could be,
and In their childish hearts they were
immeasurably grateful for the day of
pleasure, the meaning of which they did
Sixty-four little boys and girls sat
down to dinner in the home of the Boys'
and Girls' Aid Society and sixty-four
full-grown men and women could not
possibly have eaten more than they.
They had everything that was really
worth eating. Turkey, of course, cran
berries, oysters, sweet potatoes, rich
brown gravy, mince, pumpkin pies. etc.
Dinner was not served until about 3
o'clock In the afternoon. When the chil
dren were led into the dining-room they
found the tables fairly groaning with the
good things piled upon them. Superinten
dent V. T. Gardner suspended the rule
that prohibits talking at meals, but it
might as well have been left in force. The
youngsters ate and ate and had no time
for conversation, and when they were
done and had stuffed themselves so that
they could not possibly hold another bite,
they were so well tilled that they did not
want to talk. They just smiled that hap
py Thanksgiving smile.
Couldn't Kat It All.
Some of the husky little boys stowed
away dinner with as much energy as the
canal diggers shoveled earth on the oc
casion of the visit of the President to
Panama. When they finished one plate
the kind women who vere caring for
their appetites were at their elbows
Willi more. The children did their best
to eat everything in sight, but when they
had linislud there was still dinner left,
bo that they will not escape the much
maligned turkey hash today.
Among those who ate at the home of
t lie Hoys' and Girls' Aid Society yester
day was a little Chinese girl by the name
of Ling Tf. who lived at the home once
for about eighteen months. It was there
that she first learned of Thanksgiving
Iay. and she liked it so well that now
site always goes to the home for her
Thanksgiving dinner. 3he mingled with
t lie rest and appeared to enjoy herself
as much as any; It also might be added
that she ate about as much as any of
Many of the white children at the home
liKil never eaten a Thanksgiving dinner
before. Their parents were poverty
stricken, and to them Thanksgiving had
been like any other day. For weeks the
children have been waiting with the
keenest anticipation for Thanksgiving.
One of the boys, about eight years of
age. who until he became an inmate of
the Home had lived in abject poverty,
was much interested in the talk about
Thanksgiving. One day he approached
Superintendent Gardner and. grasping his
hand, said: "Please, Mr. Gardner, tell
me about Thanksgiving. We never heard
of Thanksgiving when I was home. I
don't even know much about Christmas.
Is it anything like that?"
When he went to bed last night he
knew all he wanted to know about
Thanksgiving, and it proved to be the
i greatest day in his youthful life.
At (he Crittenton Home.
The inmates of the Florence Crlttenton
Home had a splendid Thanksgiving Day.
Not a single case of the "blues" was re
ported, and everyone of the girls enjoyed
herself. They had a big spread in the
afternoon and at night a taffy "pull."
About a dozen of the girls who were
formerly inmates returned, as is their
usual custom, to spend Thanksgiving. It
was like one big family.
Few Portland banquet tables were
more tastefully decorated than those at
which the "8 children of the Children's
Home yesterday enjoyed their Thanks
giving dinner. The tables were arranged
Jn the shape of a letter T, which stood
for Thanksgiving, and were profusely
adorned with poited palms, ferns, flow
ers and big pumpkins filled with ever
greens. Picked the Bones Clean.
Hut the best of all was the dinner.
Two 24-pound turkeys were carved and
before the children got through the
bones were picked clean. Besides Ithe
turkeys there was cranberry sauce, sweet
potatoes, green corn, home-made bread,
pies, cheese, small cakes, candy and
The entire dinner was the gift of a
generous public. IMnner was followed
by games and an athletic exhibition by
the boys. The day was closed with the
usual good-night song and prayers. It
Was noted that the children put con-
siderable more enthusiasm Into their song
and wore more fervent in their prayers

PROGRAMME AT Y. M. C. A.
liig Building Is Crowded From
Morning Until Night.
Thanksgiving day was a big event at
the Y. M. C. A. From early in the after
noon until closing time at night the
spacious rooms were tilled to overflowing.
The attendance was limited only by the
size of the building. It was a typical
Y. M. C. A. programme that attracted the
crowds; wholesome sports and musical
and literary programmes attractively ar
ranged and successfully carried out.
Last evening there were four different
features conducted in various parts of the
building at one time "a four-ring circus"
as General Secretary Stone described it.
There was a literary and musical pro
gramme in the reception room, a similar
entertainment in the parlors, athletic con
tests in the gymnasium and aquatic
sports in the swimming pool. Fully 250
people took part in the various pro
grammes. At the musical entertainment in the big
reception room, every Inch of space was
utilized by the throng of members and
visitors. The programme consisted of
selections by the association orchestra
led by A. L. Clifford; a cornet solo by
Fred English, and four additional num
bers by the orchestra.
The programme in the parlor was as
follows: Song. Glee Club: reading, Miss
Anita Pearcy; solo. Miss Ethel M. Lytle;
reading. Miss Pearcy; solo. Master Harry
The gymnasium series consisted of spec
tacular marching and drilling, tumbling,
pyramids, a relay race and a basket ball
game between the married and single
men. In the tank there were swimming
and diving contests for boys.
Weather Bureau Thanksgiving.
Edward A. Beals, District Forecaster of
the United States Weather Bureau, was
the host at a Thanksgiving dinner yester
day, when he invited all the attaches of
the local weather bureau to partake of
their annual repast of the season. The
entire party spent an enjoyable afternoon
and did justice to the offerings of the
ROOTERS IN GRAND PARADE
Celebrate Victory in Style Dear to
the Student's Heart.
The Oregon football team and its root
ers celebrated the victory after the man
ner of students. The team went to the
Multnomah field in a tallyho. The return
of the gladiators to the Portland was an
ovation from the time they left the club
house until they arrived at the hotel. The
streets were lined with citizens returning
from the game and as the people who
made up the great crowd were overwhelm
ingly in sympathy with Oregon, the noise
and din on the streets was deafening.
There was no attempt at organization
among the Oregon rooters, but they all
seemed to meet at Sixth and Washington
by common consent. There a leader took
the rooters in charge and the order to
follow was given. Then the march up
Sixth street began. A far-sighted business
house distributed paper megaphones and
armed with these the students shouted
their college yells and sang college songs,
t'p Sixth street in single file marched the
rooters; the line reached from Washington
street to Morrison.
After they had yelled themselves almost
Into speechlessness there was a rush for
turkey. Both football teams attended a
banquet at the Portland Hotel, and after
the banquet went to the Heilig Theater.

Plan to Launch an Effective
Union Political Party of
GOMPERS' LEAD FOLLOWED
Three Ilepresentatives From Karli
Organization In City to Attend
Convention Will Reward Its
Friends, Punish Enemies.
That the voice of labor may be heard
in politics.' delegates from the various
Portland unions will meet in convention
ti - ....
THANKSGIVING DINNER AT THE BABY HOME,
tonight and formally launch the Union
Political Party of Multnomah County.
The organization is to be formed along
the lines indicated by President Gompers
of the American Federation of Labor,
and will work for the election of those
candidates, of whatever political faith,
who are friendly to legislation desired
by the workingmen.
About 200 delegates will attend the con
vention tonight in Union Hall at 8 o'clock
to outline plans and to take the first
steps toward organization. When the
new party is formed, it is expected that
noteless than 10,0(10 voters will cast their
lot "with it. There are about that many
union men In Portland, and it is said
the new party will attract workingmen
who are not members of unions.
To secure legislation favorable to the
workingmen is the announced purpose
of the organization. It is said by those
who are directing the movement that they
are tired of being promised reforms in
legislation by candidates for office who
promptly forget their obligations to the
laborers after election. Labor leaders
say this has happened so frequently that
some radical action is necessary to se
cure his rights for the laboring man.
An axe is being sharpened for the poli
ticians who have drawn in the labor vote
for their election to office, but made no
effort to fulfill their promises. One of the
purposes of the new party is to defeat
such men when they come up for re
election. Will Absorb. Labor Party.
The movement for a new political or
gonization of union men was inaugurat
ed last month, when a resolution was
introduced at a meeting of the Portland
Federated Trades Council. The plan was
first fathered by the Council and by the
Oregon Labor Party, which was formed
last January, and had purposes similar
to those announced by the proposed or
ganization. The new party, however, is
a direct result of the plans announced
a short time ago by President Gompers
of the A. F. of L., and it was thought
by union men that more good can be ac
complished by the new organization than
by the Oregon Labor Party. That party
will be merged into the new organization
and will lend its full support to the Union
Each union in Portland is to send three
delegates to. the. convention tonight.
These have been appointed, but the lead
ers of the movement do not know yet
who they are. as the names have not
been reported by the various unions. The
delegates will be armed with credentials
from their unions and will at once take
up the preliminary work of organization.
Several meetings will probably be neces
sary to launch the new party.
At the municipal elections in February
the effect of the new political organiza
tion will first be felt. By that time it is
thought the party will be in working
order and strong enough to make itself
a factor In results. Candidates who have
shown themselves friendly to organized
labor, or to workingmen as individuals,
will be helped Into office, while those office-seekers
who have shown lack of sym
pathy with the laborer in the past will
have a sworn enemy In the new organiza
tion. President Gompers' Plan.
The political phase of the labor move
ment was taken up by President Gom
pers of the A. F. of L. when he issued
a circular letter last Summer and rec
ommended that labor unions proceed
without delay to organize, that those
candidates may be nominated and elect
ed who will stand firm for the enactment
of labor's laws. Mr. Gompers suggested
that candidates of the old parties who
are friendly to labor be supported by
the labor vote, but in cases where both
parties Ignore the demands of organized
labor, he advised that a straight labor
candidate be nominated.
At the meeting tonight a resolution,
introduced last month at a meeting of
the Portland Trades Council, will be sub
mitted to the convention. Amendments
to the resolution in its present form may
be offered by delegates and important
changes made. As soon as a definite
working basis is reached a committee on
constitution and platform will be appoint
ed. Committees on finance and other
things to be considered will also be
"Party of Common People."
C. H. Gram, president of the Oregon
State Federation of Labor, spoke as fol
lows on the organization of a labor party:
"1 tWnk that through this organization
it will be the means of solidifying all the
common people, the working people, and
not alone the union people. I believe it
Is the only organization through which
we can obtain relief. We have been
waiting for years for either of the old
parties to pass legislation favorable to
the working people or the common peo
ple, but we have always been dis
appointed. "While we do not expect to turn con
ditions upside down on very short notice,
we expect in course, of time that people
will be educated up to the movement so
that when a candidate for a political
office makes any promises he will know
that he has to live up to them."
Views of Editor Fitzgerald.
W. H. Fitzgerald, editor of the Oregon
Labor Press, spoke as follows on the
"The American Federation of Labor
realizes that the time has arrived where
labor cannot with dignity continue to
plead for crumbs from the legislative
halls. It has been decreed by the Ameri
can federation oi uiuur mai w r nuuum
from now on take an active part in poli
tics, and the local branches of organized
labor have been advised and encouraged
to form organizations to carry on the
work as inaugurated by the National
body and for that reason the Portland
Federated Trades Council has taken the
initiative in the formation of a political
body in this city.
"We realize -that labor can unite on
economic grounds, but in the past through
the lack of political organization, we have
been divided at the polls and in order
to cement and solidify the political
strength of our members, we have taken
these steps. We are not asking for any
legislation that would be a benefit . to
union men only, but the legislation we
seek will be a benefit to all working
Labor Must Unite to Protect Self.
P. McDonald, secretary of the Oregon
State Federation of Labor, in discussing
the formation of the party, said:
"We hope to accomplish the solidfying
of the union voters, and we wish through
this convention to form a party that will
bring together all the union men and get
them to thinking and acting in harmony
for their own benefit. We realize it is
important for the interests of labor to
become active in politics. Onaccount of
the great amalgamated money interests,
we know it is utterly useless for organ
ized labor to continue to ignore its duty
in public affairs and by. forming a party
ready to take part in every campaign,
we can fortify ourselves so that we can
secure at all times fair legislation.
"We hope to elect our friends to office.
We hope to defeat the men who are
enemies of the laboring interests and
who have at all times been hostile to
labor. There are about 10.0(h) union voters
in this city and we know they will unite
in a party, but without organization of
such a body they will not unite either for
the defeat of their enemies or. the elec
tion of friends.
"In this convention we certainly will
not be able to accomplish all the work
of organizing a political party. It will
take some . time to complete the organ
ization, but we can no doubt take the
proper steps towards completing such a
"We will be ready to do business with
the politicians. By this I mean that the
politicians who make it a habit to be
tray the laboring people at every oppor
tunity, after first gaining the support
of the laboring interests to secure their
election, will be dealt with as they prop
"I do not believe the laboring people
want everything their own way; we do
not, but we do want fair legislation from
our law makers. This is the chief pur
pose of the organization of a labor
Labor Party Will Be a Power.
T. M. Leabo, treasurer of the Federated
Trades Council and secretary of the
Barbers' Union, introduced the first reso
lution in the Trades Council calling for
the formation of a labor party. He said:
"It is impossible to give all the reasons
why the laboring men of this country
should enter into politics. Every laboring
man knows the reason why and every man
who is outside of the laboring movement
knows why they should enter politics.
They are going to organize and band
together without a doubt, and they will
be a power.
"The party is not going to be organized
for the purpose of getting fat jobs for
laboring men. What we want is fair
legislation for the laboring Interests as
well as everyone else. Jt does not matter
to us who represents us In the Legisla
ture, so long as they represent the people
in the proper way."

With gay decorations of green and yel

candelabra of real pumpkins and candle

inviting appearance to the 200 girls who
dropped into their seats in prompt answer

pleted the Thanksgiving scheme.
Someone accused the association of be
ing solid for Oregon University, but while
the game players from Eugene had many
staunch admirers among the guests, they
all maintained that they were neutral on
the football question. All the customary
Thanksgiving dishes were served with the
menu, and naturally turkey, cranberry
jelly, celery, pumpkin pie and such deli
cacies were in prime favor. And after
eating it all the girls were able to sing
and did sing. Every old college song was
raked from the ashes of past school
years, the yells and toasts which beiong

Not a Turkey left in
Market Cleans Up In a Way Never
Known Hefore on Thunksivins
'o Holdover for ( hrlNtnum.
NOT a turkey fit to eat was left 'in
the Portland stores yesterday. The
market cleaned up in a way never known
before. The retailers and wholesalers
could not possibly have gauged the sup
ply better. There were enough birds for
everyone and none to spare. The re
sult was that prices held good up to
the close. What is equally pleasing to
consumers is the fact that no old stock
will be carried over for the Christmas
"I have been in the poultry business
for 20 years." said M. C. Mace, "and I
never saw the market clean up so satis
factorily. It was the best turkey season
I ever saw. There were just enough
turkeys to go around, the quality was
good and the price agreeable to all con
cerned." Conditions on Front street were equally
satisfactory to the wholesale trade. The
supply came in early and the jobbers
were thus enabled to work off the stock
to the best advantage. There was a
very strong demand from outside mar
kets and as the railroads got into work
ing order just in time, all the shipping
orders were tilled promptly. Otherwise
prices would have been lower.
Preparations are already under way by
the retail and wholesale trade to secure
for the Christmas market a sufficient
supply. Reports from Southern Oregon
are to the effect that there is still an
abundance of turkeys available there.
Not an Arrest Made by
All Previous Holiday Records Are

ALL Portland records for holiday
peace, quiet and sobriety were
broken yesterday. The day police patrol,
commanded by Captain of Police Moore,
went on duty at 7 o'clock in the morning
and reported off at 4 In the afternoon
without making a single arrest!
Not even a "drunk" could be found,
and the doors of the City Jail yawned in
vain, for there were none to enter. All
citizens walked in the straight and nar
row path, seemingly, or If they wandered
from it, they kept out of the way of the
police. At any rate, .such a record has

can be truthfully said of that district,
which usually teems with drunken men
and women and notorious characters on
