Albany Aroused
Over Liquor Law
The regular June term of. Depart-,
raent No. 1 of the circuit Court, with
Judge George H. Burnett presiding,
convened at Albany yesterday. The
docket is a small one and unless the
grand jury brings in some true bills and
some of these cases are set for trial all
the business will be Handled in a very
short time. f ;
I General interest centers in the en
forcement of the local option liquor
law.' JFor some time rumors have been
floating that special detectives have
been in that city and that other - meas
ures were being considered to stop the
illicit sale of intoxicants. .A short
time ago the sheriff with a deputy went
to all the near-beer joints in Albany
and purchased samples of the temper-,
ance drink they were selling. 'These
were sent to the chemist at the Oregon
Agricultural College for analysis. The
report has been received- and will be
laid before the grand jury. Arrests
are likely to follow. . In addition the
city council has gone on record against
these innkeepers and has decided to
force them out of business or to pay al
most a prohibitive tax. . Some favor
$1000, others unhesitatingly declare
themselves in favor of $2000. Twelve
or 15 dealers in these drinks will pro
bably be forced out of business.

Both Senator Bourne and Congress
man Hawley have written the Portland
Chamber of Commerce that they will
. use their best efforts toward the enact
ment of a law compelling railroad com
panies to file statements regarding cost
-of roads and value of plant. ,
The Chamber, some time ago, through
its board of trustees, demanded the en
actment of such a law, in order that a
proper basis , might be established upon
which freight and passanger charges
could rightfully be made. The water
ing of stock was to be eliminated, and
only actual value of the property rec
ognized in making rates or traffic for
the people. . ': "'
- Senator Bourne is particularly - deci
sive in the matter and says he favors
President Taft's recommendation, to
pass an income tax ot 2 per cent in the
earnings of all corporations, in order
that the extra status of all public ser
vice enterprises can be reached. " ' -
Oregon's Circulating Libraries
In her report made to the State Li
brary Commission, at its meeting last
week, the secretary i Miss Marvin, call
ed attention to the "increasing necessity
in Oresgon for offering access to library
ies on political science." Continuing,
the report says: "The people in Ore
gon are, to a certain extent, 'going it
alone' in their political experiences, but
there has been no case in which it has
not been possible to benefit greatly by
the . experiences of some other nations
'or states. This. is especially true in
some measures to' be voted upon at the
next election guarantee of bank' de
posits, single - tax, classification 'and
separation in taxation,, The report
shows that thirty new traveling, libra
ries have been purchased since Janu
ary and continue to show increasing
popularity. The circulation of these
libraries ranges from a few hundred
upward to 2000 volumes.
