- "Hone Play Prohibited.
Following its action at Atlantic City
last year In eliminating the "goat"
from the initiatory proceedings, the
Portland convention yesterday took ac
tion prohibiting "horse play" at all
times, even at social sessions.
The smaller lodges protested some
what against this. Portland will be
affected somewhat by this decision,
also, as . it has , been the practice on
some occasions to introduce a little
"funny business' at the social sessions
following the initiation of some par
ticularly well-known or popular man.
The grand lodge official family was
strengthened yesterday by the arrival
of Alfred T. Holly, of Hackensack, H.
J., secretary of the grand board of
trustees. Mr. Holly just returned
fronr the Democratic National conven

rumors criticising his conduct.
An unique courtroom scene was pre

Agulerre's retirement by Judge Hut

unbounded confidence in the officer's
honesty and his fidelity to his oath.
Chief Counsel Rogers of the defense de

what he designated as the enforced re
tirement of Agulerre. He declared that
Agulerre was the victim of a plot con

defense of his friendly relations with
Agulerre and demanded a full inquiry.
Judge Hutton said that before court

was the argument advanced.
On the other hand, the lodges that
have valuable property and which
maintain a high initiation fee, contend
that a change in the law would permit
men to transfer froni a lodge having
a low initiation fee and become mem

Elks who had paid the higher rate.
This question always has caused
much discussion among Elks in all
parts of the country. It has been
brought forth frequently here In Port

lodges in various other parts of the

range from $25 to $75.
