When the Northern Pacific train
pulled into the Union Station yesterday
afternoon at 3:30 with the special Pull
man car Anipyan, containing the Port
land delesation returning- from Aber
deen, there was to be seen as well
satisfied and smiling- a lot of men as
ever came back to this city from any
errand of the sort. x
And there was but one opinion as to
the people of Gray's Harbor and the
hospitality of the citizens of Aberdeen,
and that wa3 that they are the best
ever. Their treatment of our dele
pates was something never to be for
(rotten, always treasured up as an
event of the rarest enjoyment. At the
closing ceremonies Saturday night in
the Knights of Pythias Hall, the spirit
of the women of the city was demon
strated in a way so unique as to make
the event one unparalleled, one which
will be handed down' as a classic.
Mumicale AVIn Applnune.
It was ostensibly a musicale. the
programme saying that It was given by
the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce in
honor of the .Southwest Washington
Development League; it was in fact an
entertainment given by the women of
that city, the musical numbers being
the central setting around which was
hung an affair of great pleasure and
enjoyment to all.
The musicale was directed by Mrs.
Gertrude Croxall, a musician and di
rector of far more than average ability.
Indeed the arrangement and carrying
out of the affair mark her as an im
presario of whom a metropolis might
well be proud. The patronesses stand
ing sponsors for Mrs. Croxall were the
following: Mrs. J. B. Bridges, Mrs. A.
L. Davenport, Mrs. K. C. Mills, Mrs. A.
V. Middleton, Mrs. Charles Green. Mrs.
U G. Humbargar, Mrs. A. D. Wood,
Mrs J D Gray, Mrs. A. P. Stockwell,
Mrs. J. S. Gunn, Mrs. W. B. Mack, Mrs.
W. A. Rupp, Mrs. G. E. Anderson, Mrs.
Waldo Hart and Mrs. A. L. Paine.
The setting of the hall was some
thing whicli calls for comment, for it
was so beautiful as to excite the keen
admiration of every guest. When the
committee took the matter In charge
they selected 50 young misses from the
high school, their ages ranging from
15 to 17 years, and left the matter in
their hands. Each miss was to set one
table, furnish the dishes, silverware,
china, glass and linen, and decorate it
in her own way. Four prizes were of
fered for the four finest tables, but
the committee had not agreed at the
hour of departing yesterday morning.
I do not think they ever will agree,
for there was little choice in merit,
eimplv in taste as to the various ar
rangements. They ought to give 50
first prizes and then 50 gold medals
Hesldes. That is about what the guests
would have voted had It been left to
them. Every table was laden with
costly china- and rare silver and cut
glass, and the roses and other flowers
were In profusion on every hand. The
hall, which Is a beautiful one, was deco
rated with Autumn leaves, the glory
of their coloring setting off the great
beams to perfection.
Men Take I'art In Fete.
Following the musicale iee cream and
cake were served at the tables, nearly
300 finding seats, ajid 'afteT this, the
real fun of the evening began. Or
rather the mere men here took charge
and turned the artistic into Jesting and
story telling and speech, making, and
little things like that.

of their choice ditties. The following
got great applause:
(Tune: Amei'lra."
Three cheers for Aberdeen,
Best town I've ever seen.
liest town 'I've seen.
Three 'eat blic BlnirliiR cheers.
Three whoopJVmd whizzing cheers,
Three rouslne. rliiRins cheers,
for Aberdeen.
And the rortland "bunch" came in
strong with their stunts. One of their
yells given with a vim was as follows:
What can we from Portland do?
"We can boost a lot for you;
Who can ? I can. we can.
This was read by the megaphone
"We're all from Portland, proud to show it,
We're always glad to let folks know It,
Ever ready to boost for others.
Especially our harbor brothers:
So here's a yell, forget it never,
Fair Grays Harbor, forever and ever.
This was wound up with the "offi
cial yell" of the day:
The best folks we yet have, seen
Are those we met in Aberdeen,
Hip. hip. hurrah.
The simple printing of these words
gives no indication of their spirit. But
throated by 30 or more voices, with a
megaphone or two thrown In, and in a
crowd of 30-0, and all In the best of
humor, such "stunts" brought out the
heartiest of applause from the aud
ience. Among the jolliest and best
satistied guests of the evening were
Governor and Mrs. Hay.
Rettolntloiis Are Drawn.
While the Governor acted with all
seeming dignity, he was one of the
gayest of the participants In the fun.
nnd he and his wife led in the applause
in the musical performance. Their
presence at the business and social ses
sions of the league's meetings were
greatly appreciated by the delegates
and the people of Aberdeen.
On the train coming home the dele
gation was called into consultation by
the chairman. F. A. Freeman, and the
following resolutions adopted:
Resolved, That we express to the offieers.

Chamber of Commerce our heartfelt thanks
