OUR BEST WISHES
The Gazette-Times wishes for
its readers the fulfillment of
. their dearest wishes. - May this
Christmas bring peace and con
tentment of mind. Nothing
else is quite so priceless. And
.then we would have the sick
well, the blind to see and the
lame to walk. Health is next to
contentment of the mind and is
all but 3 indispensable to that con
dition. And then we would have
. the needy fed and clothed, :' and
No Gazette-Times will be
issued tomorrow. Our Christ
mas gift will be to give readers
a respite from the heavy edi
torials, and misdirected, humor
of the news columns.
THE 0REG0NIAN IS RIGHT.
, Hail to the Oregonian! It is
right on the liquor question! It
says it is,' and who knows more
about it than the Oregonian?
Proof that it is right on this ques
tion comes in -its own state
ment that it t .has Been right on
common sense." ' .That makes
the Oregonian's perfect score
even more-remarkable, Such a
record would normally proclaim
a judgment and sense above the
common, out of the ordinary, but
the Oregonian stands from under.
This must be undue modesty.
To be right always,' and on all
questions of import' to a nation
and state, is a recordthat clearly
warrants a claim of extraordinary
judgment " arid a remarkable
sense. Such a claim would be
a convincing argument that the
Oregonian actually has been
right at all times. For the Ore
gonian to have only common, or
dinary horse sense and be right
always may not be accepted by
others with common, ordinary
horse sense who have sometimes
been wrong. But the Oregonian
is pght because it has always
beeri right. M If it were' not right
! at this time, it would undoubtedly
I make that statement.-- If. tne
A LESSON FOR BOYS.
William E. Craig, nineteen
years old, extracted two register
ed letters from a mail bag. He
secured $116, blew it in for clothes
and presents for "his girl." The
judge gave him one year in the
penitentiary. The press reports
say ' 'he wept bitterly. ' ' Neither
boys nor men can afford to ap
propriate one penny that does
not belong to them. Misapprop
riation, stealing, is certain to end
in grief, though it does riot al
ways bring "bitter tears." When
the temptation comes, and it
comes to most boys and men, the
suggestion to use other people's
money shotild be forced away;
safety lies in not dwelling on the
matter. The best way to dis
place a bad thought is to replace
it with a good one.
EVERY important question that J Oregonian had not been
1 J ' . j 1 f I 1 I . 1 ' '- - - 1 -
has arisen Tn the Jiistory of the
country." What could be more
conclusive than that? And the
Oregonian admits that it has
"only average ' judgment ; and
W'iik" ' ' I We are going to cast aside J W&S-l
mi I at this time commercialism and I sSti

We are going to cast aside
at this time commercialism and
talk' to jou about' Christmas.
We wish you happiness and
prosperity, not only today, but
tomorrow and the next day,
and so on right through the
year, ; because I we want the
Christmas Spirit of good will
to linger with us 'till Christmas
We may not be able to tell
you every day Because you and
we may Me busy; still that will
not make any difference as' the
thought and the wish will be
here just the same. Whatever
joy and success comes to you
will make us glad.
But today most of all let us
forget the differences, if any, we
have had, and think only of joy
and peace and good-will in the
Spirit of Christmas.

right always it would confess at
this time. The G.-T. is sure of
this because of the gloriously
splendid way in which it makes
the confession that 'it "is right,
and always has been right.' The
Christmas 'season has softened
the mood of the Oregonian.
In the" meantime booze contin
ues its. awful havoc," riot only
on the consumer but also the
vast number of helpless souls as
sociated with him who have ' no
protection' against the. personal
liberty that enables the boozer'to
make life a burden -for ' them.
Only, a very, very few claim that
the use of intoxicants as a bever
age has 'done or "will ! do them
good." A great majority confess
, to its harm and the" remairider
confess that it has done neither
harm nor; good." .Regardless of
the Oregonian's attitude, wheth
ea it is right or .wrong, thei traf
fic in intoxicants, should, not be
tolerated. Any plan that cur
tails most the traffic in liquors is
the plan that should and will be
adopted in the end. Absolute
prohibition will come nearest ac
complishing the desired result.
The - writer is. not a' "church"
member," not a , "prohibitionist
fanatic," likes "many first-class
boozers better than he does many
j of the other kind, and if . he
I wanted it would go and get a
drink, if he could get it There
is no "horrjble example" in the
family influencing our attitude on
this question. It is simply our
impression tnat liquors never
profited any man, ; and has
, wrought untold miury to mil
lionstherefore a traffic in liquor
should not "be" 'tolerated. 'Abso
lute prohibition results, in . less
: booze being usedtherefore give
us prohibition. -
"Veneers;" a bulletin from the
one of the government offices at
Washington, is disappointing in
that it gives no information in re
gard to the brand that is applied
in covering up the many spots on
the governmental escutcheon.
Vice is ever alert to poison the
mind and destroy the character
of young people. At least an
equal vigilance s should be dis
played in storing .their minds
with that which ' is wholesome
and in safeguarding their lives.
