Just what character of uniforms will be

local members have been advised to
spnico up something great as visiting
Mooso intend to como prepared both in
dress and equipment to show tho people
some fine stunts in the way of march
Concessioners are already making de
mands for space during the week. Un
less everyone can present a Bona fide
proposition the Moose refuse to sanction
their appearance at the carnival. How
ever, several live Salemitcs will he seen
on the streets behind booths well stock
ed with the usual holiday goods, such
as the carnival spirit brings, and every
one is Invited to dig in and enjoy them
selves to the fullest extent. The Moose
members declare thnt they will show
the visiting public and local people a
good time if thoy havo to bust a sus
pender, and that they want the public

nival is not being given for the lodge
members only, but for the public, and
evoryone is cordially invited to take
part in the sports and other contests
which have been arranged for each day.
There will be bsnd music on the

On May 20, each state society will
be requested to take part in the jolli

order and as many of tho other soci
eties as are known by the Moose, and
all others not yt being a recipient of
such invitation, are requested to be on
hand in war toga to assist in raising
things from the foundations here.
Wednesday, May 1, has been set
aside as Fraternal Day. Every frater
nal order in tho Northwest has been
asked to participate' in the celebration
on that date and it, is more than prob
able that Sulein will bo honored by the
presence of many other lodges then.
Tho best drilled lodgo team on that,
date will bo awarded a silver loving
cup by tho Moose lodgo and it is hoed
by the committoo on entertainment that
local orders will take part in the drills
together with the Moose and other
lodgos from oth;r placos.
The committees arc exerting every
effort to get word to other lodges
throughout the Northwest to como to
Salem on May -1 and get acquainted.
I In view of the fact the "Woqdinen
of tho World will spring out in its fine
duds three days during tho carnival, and
'is now !unmng to hold its annua) con-
vention here, assures tho Moose that
(they will be only too glad to assist in
making fraternal day a success. The
W. O. W. will elect delegates to tho
main ramp during the convention and
Inge numbers of visiting members of
that order will lie in Sulem during the

I be humming for sure. This is Eiigcue
! Afhany l)ay and tho two southern cities
, hnve assured the local Moisu thnt they
will turn out in full force and bring
along lot only bands, but a I'ruikei-
jack of a base ball team, composed en
tirely of Eugene Moose members, on
thnt date. Oh! you Eugene-Albany.
Salem rreds you and will surely tickle
vour riln and chuck on under the chin.
Eugene has issued a challenge to the
Moose of Salem for a base bn(l game,
and tha Salem order will muster up nine
tossers to meet tho sister lodge bunch.
A grand parade has been arranged
for thnt date and In the evening a
grand ball will be given in the Moose
hall to hich the general public is in
Tho "Prune City of the World."
Dallas, has been asked to parcipate dur
ing Friday of the carnival, this day
having been set aside as Salem-Dallas
Day. Walter L. Toor.e, Jr., of Dallas,
took up the matter of visiting Salem
that day with the Dallas Commercial
Club, ard the organization voted to
SALEM, OBEQON, SATUEDAT, MAT 17,
storm tho Capital City on tho 2.'(d. The
'Moose committee has arranged a mon
ster auto parado on Hunt date and Mr.
Toozo advises Secretary Turner that he
can bo sure of antes from Dallas to
take part in the procession.
Secretary Turner also declares that
link local automobile owners havo sig
nified their intention of joining tho
larade and that ho hopes to have
enough machines beforo tho dnto set to
reach much longer in distance than on
tho occasion of the bridge celebration
Hatuidny, the last day of the carni
val, will bring several hundrod Moose
and other carnival-loving citizens from
Portland, it being Portland Day. The
Salem lodgo has been Informed that
every "dod gasted Mooso in Portland
will bo with yer." Portland Moose,
have attained a reputntion as live wires
and that they will take the wrinkles
out of Salem Saturday the 24th, goes
without saying, and the Salem Moose
members declare that the metropolis
visitors can havo anything they want
just as 1( ng as they lenvo the hall in

on in which a prize is to be awarded to
the member who turns in the most ap
plications, and Moose list's been scour
ing the woods for every likely man he
could find to boost the member dilp.
The poor, old lodge gout will have the
hardest time in his life when he tackles
these 100 men who will be invited to
ride him at least twicn around tho hall
and tho members will no doubt be com
pelled to tighten their belts and nearly
bite an eye-tooth in two in order to
awake the next morning without a lame
back from laughing too much.
The sntics performed by the new
members while they are being put
througa the mill will be interesting,
and Tha Capital Journal has been as
sured that it will bo given an accuruto
description of the whole affair. "Let

It is the sincere dosire on the part
of tho parade committee of the Moose

is needed to make the parade the big
gest and best of the kind ever seen in
Many outside automobile enthusiasts
will bo here for the parade and the
Mooso wont Salom to go on record as
having pullod off one of the lengthiest,,
if not tho longest, vehicle parades ever
made on tho coast. In the event the
parado succeeds to this extent, photos
and descriptive articles will be sent to
all tho leading lodgo periodicals and to
the Reading magazines in the east. It
is the intention of the Moose parado
committee to engage an export news
paper photographer to catch a panoram
ic picture of the parade from the top

cession winds up Stato stroet oast.
Motion picture companies will be asked
to visit Salem on tho date and pro

All thoso who have cars aro unable
to drive tho same on Friday, will con
fer a grout favor upon the parade com-
mittoe by allowing it to select, coin
potent chauffeurs to handlo the autoi,
and allow them to appear.
Beginning next Sunday, all railroads
in the sluto will reduce their possongor
rates to one and a third which assures
thoso intending to visit the Moose car
nival regular excursion fares and the
opportunity to visit the city and enjoy
the carnival at little oxponso, as far
as transportation is concerned.
The Southern Pacific company is
rising to tho occasion, It has issued
big posters especially for tho Mooso
carnival which are being tacked up in

have also been rocoivod by Secretary
Turner, and the work of distributing
them is about complotod. John M.

agent, has advised Secretary Tumor
that his company is doing all It can to
