HOSTS AT DANCE
Golden Gate Elks Give Ball at
Multnomah Hotel Which
BALL GOES TO WEE HOURS
Great Throng Comes and Goes at
Care-Free Informal Affair at
Which HospItH'y I Much
San Francisco Elks were hosts at a
all at the Multnomah Hotel, an event
which ranks high In the gay doings
of the Elks at the reunion. Every
body's talklnsr of It stUL "Who could
forget it? Picture to yourself the
Urge assembly rooms of the Multr
nomah Hotel, imagine them crowded
from end to end with a herd of Elks,
their wives, their sisters, their couslu
and their sweethearts: the men in unl
lorm or evening dress, in soft shirts
or in starched, in flannels or in day
attire; the women arrayed In those
creations beyond the power of mere
But that is not all. Throw in some
thousands of Portland people, all
anxious to show their southern sister
state that they knew what to do in the
way of the Grapevine Twist, the Pic
cadilly Prance and the Hamburg Hop.
Then ask yourself "What's the matter
with Ban Francisco for 1J15?" If you
can answer anything but "Nothing,
yon are surely hard to please.
Thousands Come aad Go.
There were thousands there at the
free-for-all, come-aa-yoii-please and
go - without - knocking entertainment
provided by the delegates from the San

talnment, even though billed as merely
a dance. Dances of the common or
garden variety do not appeal to every
body, but It WOUM D impraii i
find a soul who could not see enjoy
ment in this happy throng, pulsating
with life and energy.
If it is necessary to And any fault
at ' all it -la- that too many people at
a time were provided with fun and
frolic It should have been spread
over a longer period.
Now listen. To every member of that
huge assembly there was distributed
a Poppy emblem, and more than a
taste of the Juice of - the California
grape and the Californlan lemon. Try
and think what that means, when you
remember that there were, without
any exaggeration, thousands coming
and going every hour, that the ball
began at :S0 and lasted until 1 A. M.
Even at that aome kindly considerate
soul must have put the clock back, or
the watches of all the visitors were
Anctloa Comes Quickly.
Proceedings opened with a stately
march. "That's alright," ald some
one, 'but you wait till we get started.
What Is more it did not take them
long. Soon one and all were Imbued
with the San Francisco frivolity, and
the San Francisco smile.
. When the band the famous Coaat
Artillery Corps . contingent let loose,
'why you Just had to Join the throng.
From two-step to waits, and from
walta to one-step, and the lock,'' back
again to the Kansas Cuddle and the
waits .and so on, all through the Quick
ly speeding hours, as though no one
knew what fatigue were.
And at the end of It. a Golden Gate
tag. who had danced every dance
without the flicker of an eyelid, de
spite a certain rotundity of figure and
scarcity of hair, remarked casually
'These people seem to be amused with
a bit of a fling like this. Let 'em come
' to us. If they want amusement."
, What Is more, he said It -aa though
the $20,000 expended by them here In
Portland was but a mere bagatelle,
only a drop In their ocean of wealth.
til 11 :M the Elk visitors, tired out with
a big daya amusement, crowded Into
the cars by the thousands and enjoyed
the ride along the river to the city.
Nearly every car resounded with sing
ing and hilarity on the way in. They
were extremely weary but happy
crowds that piled off the cars in town
and mixed with the thousands of other
celebrators on the streets.
The outing went off without an ac
cident to mar the pleasantry- Although
the police were on hand, they bad
nothing to do. With all, the hilarity
there was no trouble of any kind.
COR DRAY'S WORK RECALLED
One of Organizers of Portland Elks'
Lodge Still Living.
While John F. Cordray was host yes
terday at the Oaks to Elks from every
section of the country, one of the vis
itors chanced to mention the fact that
Mr. Cordray was one of the three origi

The other two who helped Mr. Cordray
secure charter membera from all .over
Portland are now dead.
Work of organization started In 1889.
and several years later funds were
needed for a clubhouse. A street fair
decided upon, and so that in tne
