Fifty years ago Thursday Oregon Lodge
No. 3, I. O.O. F of this city, was or
ganized and in celebration of the semi
centennial, the Oddfellows of Oregon City
and vicinity held appropriate exercises,
concluding with a watch party. By a co
Incidence the night on which the local
lodge was organized was also Thursday,
or the regular meeting night of the Ore
gon City lodge. Hon. C. B. Moores gave
a historical address. Following the speech
making a banquet was served. There are
some interesting circumstances attending
the charter under which the Oregon City
lodge of Oddfellows was organized. But
for the elements the Oregon City lodge
would have been the first lodge of Odd
fellows to be organized In the state. The
charter for which residents of this city
made application was forwarded by
steamer from Washington, D. C, but be
fore a landing could be effected on this
coast the steamer In a gale drifted to the
Sandwich Islands, where the charter was
captured by a company of Honolulu men,
who proceeded to organize a lodge under
the charter. Where the words Oregon City
appeared In the document they were
marked out with Ink and the name of the
Honolulu lodge. Enterprise No. 1. was
Interlined. The charter as modified is
still retained by the Honolulu lodge. Be
fore the prospective Oddfellows of Oregon
City could secure another charter Salem
had obtained that recognition and formed
Cherneketa lodge No. L The result was
that Oregon City succeeded Jn forming the
third lodge of Oddfellows. In the state.
