of Cruiser Vessel ' Goes to
Port Angeles to Practice.
Bringing 813 sons of California, the
old cruiser Marblehead. formerly an
active adjunct of the regular Navy, but
which for the last few seasons has
been assigned to the California Naval
Uliltla. entered the harbor last eve-
nlng after what Is said to have been
one of the roughest voyages expe
rienced since she has been manned by
the Bear state force.
The vessel ran into the worst
weather Tuesday. She headed into it
soon after getting out of San Francisco
Bay and for 36 hours lt Is described
by the militiamen as "something
fierce." In the first place It developed
that the Marblehead is about as wet
as a deep sea vessel could be and
that, while she has been known to
reel off in the neighborhood of 19
knots, at one time during the blow
she made but four knots, with seas
climbing over her in playful fashion.
.and one report was that a green sea,
seven feet deep, was seen gracefully
bounding over the bow.
gallon Have Eaoo.
At any rate the sailors feel that
they have had all they are entitled to
1 of real navy weather and hope that
the rest of the cruise will be more
comfortable. The well deck was made
uninhabitable and the men were driven
below to swing hammocks, which made
It decidedly crowded underdeck. Lieu
tenant Barthalow. U. S. N who is de
tailed as Instructor, has put the cltixen
sailors through their paces, particular
ly with reference to target practice.
- about which he Is enthusiastic, and to
day he will attempt the building of a
sea target. . a task that usually re
quires several days at a Navy-yard,
but he says he can complete it in one.
The target will be towed to Port An
geles, where the crew will have prac
tice for a few days, and Lieutenant
Barthalow says the first shots can be
fired in a few hours after arriving.
Captain Bauer, who has been here In
the past as head of the California
organisation, accompanies the Marble
head. The full list of officers fol

Marblehead steamed, past the . battle
ship Oregon, heading for an anchorage
above the Broadway bridge piers, as
men and officers of both vessels stood
at attention and the officers saluted.
Almost before the Marblehead's anchor
was down. Ensign Kingman, of the
Oregon, was alongside In a steam
launch as the representative of Cap
tain Jenson and in a short time Cap
tain Bauer returned the call.
Lieutenant Kober. of the Oregon Na
val Militia, of which he is acting exec
utive officer, with Lieutenant-Commander
Capron. paymaster, and Lieutenant-Commander
Wolf, chief sur
geon, met the Marblehead off Bwan
Island, having made the trip In a
steam launch from the cruiser Boston,
and after being received, he outlined
steps that had been taken for the en
tertainment of the officers and men
from California. The enlisted men
were the guests of the Boston's tars
last night.-a-vaudeville show being the
programme, followed by refreshments.
The Oregon Naval Militia officers were
the guests of Captain Bauer and the
officers at dinner n the Marblehead
and they will return the favor today.
The Marblehead will sail tomorrow,
bound for Port Angeles, but because
.the vessel wss delayed on the way
from the Golden Gate, there will be no
visit to Tacoma or Seattle. From Port
Angeles the ahlp will proceed to Vic

Couple the luxury of a Pullman with

ordinary automobile, and It is possible
to gain some laea of trie aeugntiui

convention, having traveled all the way
from Pasadena, Cal, by an automobile

Snyder took no oath to avoid hotels,
but even If he had it would have caused
him no hardship to keep his word, for
he carried with him on the car all
the paraphernalia of a Parisian chef
and the appurtenances of an apartment-

though with plenty on its tonneau, was
a seven-passenger Pierce-Arrow con
verted Into a palatial place of habita
tion by the taking out of two of the
seats and the installation of the knick
knocks of the home. . -
In the party were Mr. ' and Mrs.
Charles Snyder, of Pasadena. Cal., Miss
Ann Sutherland wf San Francisco. Miss
Bess McCormack, of Reno,: Nev., and
Miss Gertrude Upton, of Los Angeles.
Last but not least a prize English bull
dog, with a. special seat for his majes
ty, affixed to the side of the .car.
Fixed onto the back of the auto was
an Iron box containing five fiber suit
cases, and two 'compartments at the
top to take the aluminum cooking uten
sils and the foodstuffs. Inside the
car were pneumatic mattresses, electric
light of every description, even to cigar
lighters, with -a plug which allowed of
the illumination of the tent at night,
Alaska sleeping bags, one for each,
guns, fishing tackle, lunch table and
stools, and a collapsible tent large
enough to act as a garage In addition
to a house.
"We left Pasadena June it. expe
riencing fine weather all the way till
we got to Oregon." said Snyder. "Then
we began to be bothered by the roads;
In fact, we were told by garage men
and others in Medford that we were
foolish to attempt to go through on
our own power. However, I preferred
to make the attempt, with the result
that we got here all right.
"But I can tell you that your roads
are more than a joke in parts. The
run between Roseburg . and Cottage
Grove was awful. The road for nine
miles from Comstock to Cottage Grove
was one mud hole up to the hubs all
the way. The road overseer said they
had had rain dally for two weeks,
which accounts for some of It, but the
road would be. bad under any condi
tions u-itll it has been macadamised.

delays, nothing eventful. - We made the
trip of 1188 miles in ten days actual

retired and is devoting his spare time,
that Is, when he is .not motoring, to
growing oranges In California.

PORTLAND ELKS WILL ASSEM
BLE AT 8:30 THIS MORXtSG.
All members of, Portland Lodge
have been lnstructod by C. C Brad
ley, exalted ruler, to report at the
Armory at 8:30 this morning to pre
pare for marching In the big parade.
As Portland will lead the procession
lt is- necessary for all member to
report promptly at 8:30. Only those
who have the regulation uniforms
will be admitted in line.
. "We will have the best and clean
est parade in the history of Elkdom,"
said James R. Nicholson, of Bpring
fleld, Mass., grand esquire of all the
Elks, last night after making a final
review of his plans for the big pro
cession of 12.000 lodgemen which will
move through Portland's principal
business streets on both the east and
west sides of the river at 10 o'clock
Mr. Nicholson declares that more
unique and Instructive features will
be presented this year than in any
other parade ever held. For the psst
few years the Elks have striven to rid
their annual parades of all undlgnlfio
advertising and otherwise objection
able entries. The parade today prob
ably will reach the highest standard
of cleanliness and dignity ever pre
sented by a fraternal organization. ;
Advertising Ruled Out. .-1
Not even community advertising
will be permitted. "Salem, the Cherry
City," "Medford, the Pear City," and
similar slogans will be allowed, but
everything in any way calling atten
tion to the alleged advantages of any
particular community will be barred.
The grand esquire, as well as George
L. Baker, chairman of the Portland
parade committee, has had frequent
applications from enterprising firms
and individuals desiring to exploit
their wares, but the unequivocal
answer in every instance has been
The distribution of oranges by the
Elks of Redlands, San Bernardino and
other Southern California cities comes
within the bounds of allowable fea
tures. Any lodge that wants to give
away samples of the particular prod
ucts of the community in which lt ii
located will be permitted to do so. But
It will not be permissible to give awsy
the manufactured product of any plant
or Industry If lt bears anything of an
Portland to Act as Escort.
Generat-W. E. Finzer, chief of stafl
of the grand esquire, announced last
night that the parade will move
promptly on time. '
Following the grand esquire, his
chief of staff, aides, mounted bugler
and administration band will march
