I ' Kid Horses Into Hotel.
At the Imperial hotel. Sheriff Taylor,
George Perlnger, "Bill" Ferguson, wheat
fimn, W. R. "Jinks" Taylor, brother of
the. sheriff, and D. J. Clark, livestock,
agant for the O.-W. R. & N. company,
rod their horses down the steps into the
bar room. On the main floor the horses
were given a "drink" at the bar. At the
Multnomah hotel the horses cantered
Into the big lobby as though It were no
thing new for them, , and then at the
Portland hotel - they walked- down the
etalra Into the 'grill, with the sure-foot,
ednesa of the range and mountain cow
poniea. ,
v Together with the "buckaroos" wera
a band of whooping "Indians," in war
paint and feathers, among them being
Mark Moorehouse, Marshall Spell, Gail
gturdlvant, Dr. W. H. Lytle. Roy Alex
ander, Jim Eatea, Cres and Jim Sturgis,
Jack Dozler, Oscar Ifohler, George
trand, deputy sheriff, and "Wlllard
Bond. At each stopping place the "war
dance" and "war-whoop" waa given with
Startling realism, which waa added to
by tom-tom mualo furnished by Charley
-Vaa-Feltr-FFaneta MoParland and Leo
Sampson, three real Umatilla Indians
brought down for the occasion.
j Bangs Vaudeville In City.
It was a wonderful show. It would be
counted wonderful if seen on the range.
Witnessed as It was last night In the
Jieart of a great city thronged with
thousands of merrymakers, It was some
thing to be remembered for a lifetime.
There wer features of the Impromptu
celebration, too. which the onlooker
could not tee nor appreciate. To tue
"buckaroos" themselves they are the
Significant detail, of the showing.
Among the 2M head of horses brought

war it head of genuine Indian spotted
horses. To the layman this probably
doesn't mean much, but- the man who
has lived among the Indians and knows

dian squaw her "spotted" horse is just
aa dear and probably more-so than an
engagement ring Is to a white woman.
To get these horses the Pendleton boys
had to enlist the aid of friendly Indi
ans and had to coax and promise and
even threaten to Induce the owners to
let the horses go for even a few days.
Bonnetg Valuable Beyond Price.
The Indian war bonnets and some of
the clothes brought by the delegation
are valuable beyond price to their own
ers. The war bonnets decorated with
real eagle feathers, the -trutlls turned
and tipped with horsehair as only an
Indian can do It, are growing scarcer
every day, and the Indians as well aa
the white men who hava them among
thalr collections, are hoarding them al
most sacredly.
Besides the horses In the Pendleton
section of the parade yesterday were 39
mules and a burro. This included
"Jinks" Taylor'a pack train of 1! mules
and a bell mare, and the famous buck
ing horses, "Long Tom," "Sunflah
Molly." "Llghtfoot" and "Hotfoot"
Long Tom," the Pendleton boys say,
has never been ridden "clean;" that Is
to say, with one hand on the bridle rein
and the other hand free.
Carload of Trapping Brought.
The delegation also brought an auto
mobile earful of saddles, chaps, spurs
and trappings, and every item of the
furnishings, as well as the livestock,
was Insured before leaving.
The Pendleton boys, all most modest
regarding their own personalities and
their part In the success of the show
ing, give much credit to Elmer ("Horse
mill") Turner, who though not an Elk
himself,' worked long and hard In as
sisting in getting the exhibition to
gether, and in taking care of the ship
ment and care of the livestock. Besides
being a "buckaroo" of some prominence.
Mr. Turner is counted the best all around

and what he doesn't know about horses,

P. C. Sparry, chairman of the 1913
committee o"f Pendleton lodge No. 288,

down early In the week to make arrang e

details of their showing in the parade.
They were accompanied by R. W. Rit

brief farewell address was delivered by
the retiring grand exalted ruler, John
P. Sullivan. When he had concluded
his remarks, delegates sprung to their
feet and cheered wildly for 20 minutes,
attesting the position he had held in
their esteem.
- His speech was followed by the Intro
duction of a aeries of resolutions by Dr.
C. H. Brough of Fayettevllle, Ark., ex

for the splendid abilities of Mr. Sulli

propriation be made for the purchase ef ;
a suitable testimonial for the retiring
chief. The resolution was adopted
When the new grand exalted ruler,
Thomas B. Mills of Superior Wla.,
stepped on the platform the delegates
greeted him with a atorm of applause
as hearty as the ovation given Sullivan.
Mr. Mills spoke only a few minutes.
He thanked the lodge for selecting him
and promised to do his utmost to guide
the order aright during his term.
- Two . matters -.of... great Importance
were settled at this session of the grand
lodge In addition to the order prohibit
ing "goat riding" as an Informal part
Of the initiation.. The first matter was
the final decision to expend $250,000 for
the construction of a new national home
for aged and Indigent Elks at Bedford
City, Va.; the second was an appropria
tion of $20,000 made to assist helpless
Elks who are victims of tuberculosis,
nan Finally Heallsed.
The action of the grand lodge in set
ting aside a sum of $250,000 for the
proposed new home marks the conclu
sion of agitation to build the home else
where than Bedford City.
Under the motion unanimously
adopted by the grand lodge a tax of 26
cents will be levied this year against
each member of the order, and a simi
lar tax probably will be levied in 1913
and 1914 to raise money for the home.
If any more Is then needed, it probably
will be drawn from the general fund.
Cary Applegate, secretary of the,
grand trustees and a member of the new"
national home commission, today ex
pressed himself as well pleased by the
action of the grand lodge In thla mat
ter. "Under the authority granted by this
grand lodge," he said, "the home com
mission will get to work as soon as pos
sible preparing plans for tha proposed
home, that will not exceed In cost $250,
000, the sum set aside for the purpose.
It will take several months to complete
the plans and preliminary work. The
matter of building the homo is settled
for good. It will be built at Bedford
and I certainly ant pleased. New plana
will be submitted to tha grand trustees
for Indorsement, and then the grand
lodge will formally pass on them. Ac
tual construction' work will follow.
"At present we have about $76,000 in
the building fund. This wilt be aug
mented this year by approximately $93,
000 through the 25 cents tax levy, and
will give us more than half the sum we
Shall need to complete the work, before
the foundations of the new home will
have been laid."
That the work toward the preserva
tion of elk of tha four footed varUty
will be continued, la assured through
tha action of the grand lodge yesterday
afternoon, when the committee on the
preservation of elks submitted an
amended report. The report showed that
congress recently appropriated a total
of $70,000 for food and shelter of the
animals In Wyoming. The grand lodge
decided to continue its work of securing

More Than 10,000 Visitors
Spend Delightful Evening
at Resort Above City.
Council Crest fairly swarmed with peo
ple last night when over 10,000 Elks
and their families and friends had the
big park on the top of the crest to them
selves. All of the amusements were
free and the visitors took advantage
of every line of entertainment offered.
The big skating rink .was turned into
a dance TTall and with the playing of
popular music the visitors hid a de
lightful time. Manager Duchamp of the
Crest, had arranged everything for the
evening and his plans were carried
through without a hitch.
Luncheon and refreshments were
served in the big orchard and were
heartily enjoyed by everybody. Sand-,

there for the taking and they were

Before it waa decided not to nave
the formal presentation, however, Mr.

After a short conference it was agreed

Tha Aberdeen delegation, which won

of purple velvet, purple high hats, pur

of white, with cuffs and collar of pur
ple, purple ties and white canvas shoes.
Pendleton easily won first for the
uniqueness of its Indian and cowboy unl
forms, and Astoria took second. Tha
Astorlans made a striking appearance,
each man marching as the body of an
enormous clam, whose shells he carried
about him. Seen from the rear they
looked remarkably like so many bird
men. The Palles won third with its Indian
costumes, which Included purple blan
kets. The Dalles Indians took delight
: In separating a pretty girl from the
crowd and then dancing a war dance
around her.
Albany, which took the $300 prize for
the Oregon lodge with the best showing
In numbers, had 392 In line. They were
