Keep Bright and You
Klcctric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of husiucss. People can
no more resist the attraction of u brilliant, Klcctrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a hrass hand.
Is your competitor with the Klcctrically illuminated show
windows, hrlght interior and sparkling Klcctric Sign getting
an advantage over you ? The moth never Mutters around the
tinlighted caudle! Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting a necessity, whether they remain ocii
nfter dark or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klcctric
light will make many a sale "the night before," Klcctric
light compels attention, makes eusy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail and fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Klcctric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment It is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It is a solicitor thut never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.

To the Kditor: The Rev. J. R.
Knodcll of Portland, one of the
manv salaried "superintendents"
of the Anti-Saloon League, stated
the other day that the local option
elections this year were only pre
limiuarv skirmishes. He said that
the real idea was to obtain prohlbl
tion for the entire state of Oregon
in 1010. two years from now. That
lets the cat out of the bag.
The people were assured four
years a no that the local option law
was merely intended to protect res
idcucc districts against the cu
croachmcut of the saloon.
"We are not prohibitionists,"
cried the supporters of the bill.
"We are only local optiouists."
To those who claimed that the
local option law was merely prohi
bition tu disguise, its supporters
presented an unbroken front. When
taxed with the fact that tliclr law
was unfair they replied by asking
the public to read it. As the law
was 28 pages in length the public
would not bother itself by making
a more careful investigation
When they were confronted with
the fact that states and commun
itics which adopted prohibition
grew poor and lean, they said it
was not so. When
shown that the United
sus proved that only
in the Union hud ever

were prohibition states, they

It sometimes pays to look around a little
and get prices ami see qualities before
you buy. We have both.
"j;o not worry. Tins is only a
local option law. We are not in
favor of prohibition."
When this same crowd of sal
aried agitators was asked if taxes
were not generally higher in prohi
bition communities than in com
inuuilies which handled the liquor
business under the license system
they were quick to answer: "It is
not so, but even if it were, it docs
not matter, for this is local option
not proliiimiou."
And now tlic cat is out of the
bag. They are not local optiouists
I hey are prohibitionists after all.
The opponents of the local option
law were riglit. it really was pro
hibitiou in disguise. And the
scheme of the smart attorneys, Ice
Hirers and orators, who make a fat
living out of this prohibition agita
tion, is quite plain. The scheme
is to start in quietly; to hold elcc
tious in precincts in which there
arc no saloons, never were any sa
loons and probably never would be
any saloons. Such precincts being
iriglitcued with the ubsurd ques
tion, "Do you want a saloon next
your home?" were easily put in the
dry column. Then by adding each
year to the dry territory acquired
11 this way, they have finally
reached that state of arrogance in
which they have thrown aside the
mask and boldly declared for state
prohibition two years from now.
Voters have been fooled with this
kind of fraudulent election long
Prohibition accomplishes uothiiic
tor real tcmerauce or for morality.
Bankruptcy does follow prohibition
and the united btates census re
ports prove this beyond a doubt.
Here nud there n prohibition orator
may una a prohibition town or
small community which has been
fairly proscrous even in spite of
prohibition. There are exceptions
to all rules, but government figures
which do not lie, prove that prohi
bition is not only a mark of a stag
nam community, but is a blight to
a prosperous one.
Prohibition in Oregon .would
cause 2500 buildings to become va
cant and would throw out of em
ployment 9000 men and deprive
1000 minutes ot their livelihood
Where is the prosperity in this?
Remember a vote for local option
now is n vote for prohibition in

There is no end of amusing inci
dents connected with the hard
work of conducting the state
eighth grade examinations. In
spite of the careful work of teach
crs, and hard study of the pupils
there will occasionally creep in
answers which would startle the
natives. Why they do, the mental
process through which they come
would be a study for the psycholo
Recently we looked over some
papers on history and the follow

to questions we found:

part of the United States was main

large plantations and also keep
slaves. They did what they
thought but after were under the
laws and rules made by the prcsi
dents as wc do now. Massachu

U. b. and at once was a small col

nations to interfere with their ideas,

The statement of permits issued
in bt. Johns is as good reading as
that of the big city up the river.
The number of permits issued last
year during April was 14 and the
same number this year: but while
the valuation last year was $ i,8oo
this year it was $17,250, last year
during the first four months there

the bottom with a biir berrv and
