What is the error that is reported?

A couple of things stand out:

1. You have no -legend()- around the -order()- suboption.

2.  It doesn't appear that the -legend(order())- (or the ytitle, yscale....)
are attached to one of the -line- commands.

Is this what you want:

sysuse auto,clear

twoway line mpg price if fore == 0 ,sort lc(blue) lp(dash) /// 
|| line mpg price if fore == 1 , sort lc(black)  ///
legend(order(1 "white sex ratio" 2 "black sex ratio"))
