Elks Are Prepared to Impress
. - Claims for Grand Lodge
Reunion in 1912.
I (big- delegation going
; PGo9 C. Moser, Fast Exalted Rqler, to
Head' Party, Which Will Contend
for Prize for lodge Travel
ing Greatest Distance.
Ietermined to lay a solid foundation
for Portland's claim for the 1912 grand
lodge reunion of the Benevolent and Pro
tective Order of Elks, Portland Lodge No.
143 -will be at Detroit in such numbers
that the Portland supplication will be
made known to all the Elka in the coun
try. i When the Portland .Elks special train
J pulls out of the Union Depot bound, for
I Detroit on the night of July 6 there will
be the most enthusiastic delegation of
antlered ones aboard who ever started
for a grand lodge reunion. "Portland in
1912" will be the battle-cry. Already the
committee in charge of the Portland ex
cursionists has arranged for headquarters
Immediately adjoining the reservations of
the grand lodge In the Hotel Pontchar
train. This move on the part of the com
mitteemen of "142" assures the Portland
delegation's being in close touch with the.
grand lodge officials, as well as the thou
sands of visitors who - will throng the
auite of the highest officials of the order.
Campaign Well Organized.
The Portland Elks began their campaign
last year at Los Angeles for the 1912 re
union, and so well were they received on
1 all sides that they now go . to Detroit
to impress upon the Eastern delegation,
which will be strongly represented at
j that place, Portland's enterprise and
tenacity of purpose. Portland wants the
j 1912 reunion and this desire Is to be made
' prominent In the Detroit conclaves and
i In social Intercourse with visiting mem
j bers. The scene of the 1912 reunion will
not be decided upon until 1911, but the
claims1 are always put forward In ad
vance. The O. R. & N. Company has placed
n handsomely-appointed special train at
the .service of the Portland Elks. This
train, on the night of leaving Portland,
will comprise four Pullman cars, an
observation car, dining car, dynamo bag
gage car, and a buffet car equipped with
barber shop, bath and other conven
iences. This train will be Increased by
the addition of a car at Pendleton con
veying the Spokane, "Wash., delegates,
as well as the representatives of the
Idaho lodges, while at Pocatello two cars
' bearing the Montana delegation will be
added. The train Is routed East over
the O. ' R. & N.. Oregon Short Line1 and
' Union Paclflo as far as Omaha, and
thence over the Chicago,' Milwaukee & St.
Paul to Chicago from whence the route
extends to Detroit, over the Wabash
Leaving Portland, and as far as Omaha,
the train will be in charge of Traveling
Passenger Agent Jack O'Neill, the man
. who so successfully conducted the Port
: land Elks' special to Los Angeles last
: year, while from Omaha to Chicago a
former Portland favorite, the veteran Jim
.Casey, now with the Milwaukee, will
handle the train.
Travelers' Prize Sought.
The Detroit Elks have offered a
prize of $1000 for the lodge represented
there with the greatest number and
traveling the greatest distance, and
this prize will be brought home by No.
142. according to the enthusiastic mem
bers of the Portland lodge.' Another
prize that is attracting widespread at
tention in' Elkdom is the offer of a
12000 Hudson automobile to the lodge
represented by the greatest number of
women relatives of the visiting Elks,
and already Portland lodge looks for
ward to capturing this prize as well,
for the members say they will be on
hand with enough members of the fair
ex to capture all the prizes In sight.
To emphasize Portland's claim to the
grand lodge reunion the members of
the Portland delegation to Detroit, in
addition to distributing 1000 of the
Portland lodge badges, will distribute
6000 watch fobs bearing appropriate
The fobs will be of leather bearing
a medallion with an old coin edge and
bearing on the face a raised engraving
of majestic Mount Hood, with the
horns of an elk arising from behind
the peak as the rays of the sun. The
inscription on the face is "Majestic
Mount Hood" above and below, "The
pride of Oregon, elevation 11,225 feet."
The inscription on the reverse side is
: "Portland, Oregon," and "B. P. O. Elks,
No. 142 bids you welcome in 112.
1 These medallions are of handsome de
sign and ought to prove the most pop
ular souvenirs of the Detroit reunion.
O. R. & N. to Help.
Another medium whereby Portland
bnd Oregon are to be extensively ad
vertised at Detroit will be the distri
bution of 10,000 handsomely engraved
posters Issued by the O. R. & N. Com
pany, setting forth Portland's claims
to the convention. Its population and
environments in attractive style. These
posters have already created much
comment in Elks' circles.
The committee in charge of the
Portland flics' excursion to Detroit is
as fallows: - Monroe Goldstein, chair
man; A. E. Sanderson, secretary, and
J. H. Deitz, E. W. Moore and Thomas
I. Richards. Past Exalted Ruler Moser,
of the Portland lodge. Is the active del
egate to the grand lodge and will
carry the vote of No. 142, though all
past exalted rulers and charter mem
bers are honorary members of the
grand lodge. Delegate Moser and Ex
alted Ruler Apperson express them
selves as highly pleased by the work
of the committee in . charge of this
excursion, for they have accomplished
a great deal In the work of stimulating
Interest in making this trip to Detroit.

send had little to ' say concerning the
$40,000,000 suit, and, except for the an
nouncement that he would remain in the
city until the case was disposed .of,
would not discuss the controversy.
The Attorney-General appreciates the

said Mr. Townsend, "but out of courtesy

about it. .......

neys for the Southern Pacific Company
and the Oregon & California Railroad,
the latter company being the original
holding corporation for the lands granted
a subsidy by the Congressional acts of
1866 and 187a
The case Is now standing in the United
States Court on a demurrer to the com
plaint of the United States, and was ar
gued orally in March, 1909. The written
brief by the Government was filed June 2
last, and the court allowed "W. r. Fenton
90 days in which to reply.
It has recently . become known that
United States District Attorney McCourt
made an endeavor to have the Federal
grand Jury return indictments against
some of those who have been making a
business of soliciting persons residing in
other states to tender the land depart
ment of the Southern Pacific $400 as the
purchase price of a quarter-section of
land, under the belief that such action
established a prior right to buy the
land, should the court rule that the grant
cannot be forfeited to the Government,
but that the land must be sold to actual
settlers only at the maximum price of
J2.50 an acre.
When witnesses were taken before the
grand Jury they saH that they were not
being defrauded, and had been Informed
of the exact terms of the law. They
were willing to take, the chance of the
court ruling In their favor, and to pay
the locators a large fee for the privilege.
The suit was filed by the Government
in February. 1907. It asks that the 3,000,
000 acres of land be restored to the pub
lic domain because of violations of the
terms of the grant under whioh it was
obtained. For a time the railroad com
pany sold lands to actual settlers, but
also sold for higher prices than $2.50 an
acre, and to persons who were not actual
settlers. Tracts containing thousands of
acres were sold to lumber concerns and
speculators at much higher prices, $1000
an acre being paid in Instances. The
Southern Pacific in 1890 ceased selling
the land at any price. Since that time
65 law suits have been filed against the
company In an endeavor to compel the
sale of the lands. These have all been
merged with the suit begun by Mr.
Townsend by direction of a resolution
adopted by Congress. Since the suit was
begun in 1907 about 7000 persons have been
allowed to Intervene, being those who
have made tenders at the solicitation of
locating agents.
