No intoxicating liquors will be served in the Elk or Wenaha clubs after the first of the year. Both organizations have gone on record in favor of a strict observance of the prohibition law. The Elks, at their regular meeting last evening, adopted resolutions expressing their intention of abiding by the laws of the state and of the grand lodge which has ruled that all Elk lodges in dry territory shall not keep intoxicants in their club rooms. W.J. Clarke, one of the managers of the Wenaha Club, stated this morning that that club had decided that after December 31, no spirituous or malt liquors will be permitted in the club and that the club rooms will be open for inspection at all times to officers or other persons who wish to ascertain whether or not the club is obeying the law.

A Umatilla man has notified the Pendleton City Council of his plans to convert an old theater and a former bar into a Western dinner and entertainment club on Pendleton’s Main Street. In a letter to the council, Robert M. Kenney said the Main Street Cowboy Club will be located at the former Centre Theater and Bronco Tavern at 349 and 355 South Main Street. Kenney, who was unavailable for comment on his plans Tuesday evening, said in the letter that the club will feature a smorgasbord for lunch and dinner with various stage shows during and after normal dinner hours. He said the lobby of the theater will be the main entrance to the restaurant and will include “Wall of Fame” enhanced by local cowboy and Indian memorabilia, and the business will be tied in with Pendleton Underground Tours, Inc.
