The First Annual banquet of
the Polk county Republican Club,
held at the Little Palace Hotel, in
ndependence Saturday night was
a success, such is the unanimous
verdict of those in attendance.
Invited guests from the surround
ing country began arriving In the
afternoon. Mr. Yates came , down
from Corvallis on the afternoon
train. The Salem contigent arriv
ed by boat a little after 8'oclock
in the evening. About the same
time the motor pulled in from Dal
las with a delegation of guests in
cluding Judge McGinn of Portland.
Until bannuet hour the guests ex
changed greetings in a room of the
Cooosr bl.ck and various other
places in town.
It was 10 o'clock when the doors
of the banquet hall swung open
and the guests filed in to the strains
music by the Independence
orchestra. There were 113 covers
1d hut tha number present was
arger than the seating capacity
of the dining hall and the overflow
was taken care of at a second sit
ting The dining hall was appro
priately decorated, the national
flag being in eyidence and a picture
of President Roosevelt conspicuous
ly displayed. At the entrance was
stationed the orchestra that dis
coursed music during the evening
The waitresses, dressed in their
prettiest, looked their sweetest,
and the ushers. Claud Hubbard
and Carl Percival, wem everywhere
to see that no decanters ran dry.
The assemblage, included gray
haired veterans in their 80's as
well as first-voter republicans and
tha bannuet hall was graced with
such speakers as Judge Henry E
McGinn, of Portland, W. K. i ates,
of Corvallis, E. Hofer and Hal D.
Patton. cf Salem, and leading
ights of the party in Polk county.
The menu was most elaborate and
won for J. M. Stark, the caterer,
ancomiums for those . who had
rested their feet under banquet
tables where the consideration was
$5 per plate and upwards. Eight
courses were served, beginning
with Teko Point oysters an the
half shell. There was Little Palace
consomme, salads, baked Jsalmon
ith sauce, cold turkey, cold ham,
lamb and green peas, ice . creams,
coffee, cake, nuts and cigars-
During dining hour, in addition to
orchestral music, taking solos were
rendered by Mrs. George Conkey
and Mrs. Dorris.
Jnst before the hour of 12 o'clock
W. W. Persival, who had been se
lected to represent the President,
arose and bade the guests welcome.
In the course of his remarks Mr.
Percival deprecated tha factional
fights within the party and gave
assurance of the club's purpose to
strive tor harmony all along the
line. ' ' ""
Hal D. Patton, president of the
Young Men's Republican Club of
Salem, in responding; paid a very
high tribute to the club for its en
terprise in getting p such a ban
quet and for the treatment accorded
E. Hofer, in responding to the .
toast of "Abraham Lincoln," laid
down some of the enduring princi
ples enunciated by that illustrious
leader and the speaker jocularly
and frankly referred to himself as
a prodigal returned, while bis vig
orous appearance spoke the rest
readiness to carve the fatted calf.
Hon. W. E. Yates paid a tribute
to the g- o. p., the ladies and the
club and was followed by other
speakers, including Hon. J. L. Col-
ins. J. N. Hart, Hon. G. L.
Hawkins, J. C. Hayter, E. C. Klrk
patrick, Mervin Marsh, Prof. C. L.
Starr, Mayor Cooper, Landlord
Stark and others.
Judge McGinn was unfortunately
taken sick before his name was
reached on the list of speakers and
many were disappointed in not bo
ng able to hear him on the occa
sion. He had made the trip all
the way from Portland, by way of
Dallas, without a bite to eat and
though unable to speak the judge
said before leaving: "You are on
the right track, boys. Don't allow
Multonomah nor any other county
to come in with their factional
fights to disrupt your local politics.
Your banquet was a great success."
The committee on arrangements
that looked after the many little
details that go taward making a
success of such an afiair was com
posed of President J. L. Hanna.
