They frequently made themselves
conspicuous by their excuses. One
dealer with a sense of humor marked
down soma of the excuses offered for
future reference. The one that took
the grand prlxe and gold medal was
that of a -customer who bought two
gallon of whisky.
He rxplalned carefully to the dealer
that under no circumstances would he
drink the "stuff." JIo wanted It, be

Not all the saloons of Portland will
close their doors for good Just becausa
prohibition haa come to pass.
True, the majority of the nearly tuu
saloons In the city will be locked up
for the laat time tonight. But a goodly
number of the proprietors of thirst es
tablishments in the downtown districts
have made arrangements to continue In
business, for a time, at least, to cater
soft drinks or lunches.
Tho Turn Hall, at Fourth and Tarn-
hill, of which Charles Kirchner and
Henry Banno are the proprietors, will
enlarge the present grill run In con
nection with the bar. and make a spe

also will be served.
Tha Lotus saloon, on Sixth street be
tween Washington and Alder, which is
aald to ba the most Iuxunousiy-ap
nolnted liauor establishment on the Pa

a receiver for more than a year. The
receiver. John E. Kelly, has announced
that nlans to continue the Lotus as an

I J. E. Fait, of Falfs bar. Fifth and
Morrison streets, is one saloonkeeper
who Is glad that prohibition has come.
His attitude is explained by the fact
that be has made most of his profit
during the time that he has occupied
hla present location by filling orders
for crawfish, cocktails and oyster cock
tails. His crawfish business last year
was prodigious, and he expects to do an
even larger business In 1916.
He said that the elimination of
"booxe" from hla bar would also elimi
nate the "roughnecks" and leave a class
of trade much to be desired.
Owners of the B. Ic B. Cafe, Fourth
and Washington streets, will probably
go out of the business entirely. They
find the greatest profit in alcoholic
liquors and are loth to attempt the sale
of soft drinks. No definite arrange
