Portland, Oregon, for the
Wolcott (the rent man) no 11 till
street, Portland, is the man to seei
for real cMntc or mercantile dents.
Rev. Pattern nt the
church Sunday evening gave as his
opinion Why merchants go Dust
ctl in St. Johns" that the saloons
are inninly responsible. Jt may be
true cnoUKh that tlie saloons con
tribute their full share toward the
downfall of merchants that have
gone to the wall in fat. Johns, but
as to bcinn the prime reason is open
to d scuss on. Were it not Hint
merchants go. busted" in prolnbi
tion cities as well ns in wet ones,
there would be stnnll grounds to
disagree with Rev. Patton in his
contention , but prohibition does
not eliminate failures, even H It
has n tendency in thnt direction.
Asn matter of fact any fair mind
ed man will agree thnt today the
citv of St. Johns is cleaner moral
ly with less drunkenness in evi
dence than has ever been the case,
not excentimr the period when fat
Johns was legally n dry city. This
has been wrought about by an eiu-
elent police force and stringest reg
ulations prescribed by the city
council. It is not our purpose or
intention to shield or uphold the
saloon business. In fact we have
not the shchtcst use lor Honor 111
nny manlier or lonn. ciwecic
sire to be fair. Many ministers of
the country seem to delight in tell
inir how saloon men invite mid co
erce the boy into the saloon. In nil
our experience we have not known
of n single instance where n saloon
keeper invited u boy into 11 saloon,
but we have known cases where
youth have been ordered out be
cause they dm not nppenrot proper
tine. It is true that in places boys
under nge can and do secure liquor
but not upon invitation of the mi
loon keener. We have known of
churches, ltowcer, to advertise in
large (luring letters right 011 the
sacred edifices the allegation: The
saloons want your boyhave you
one to spare." rossimy poor
homeless, friendless boys have at
times been thus directed to where
they are assured of welcome by
reading these, advertisements.
Who can tell! Is the saloon keeper
nny more responsible for the boy's
first taste of liquor limn is the to
ImccouiKl for his hi si chaw of to
Imcco? It is true that if liquor was
not sold boys would not become
drunkards. Hut prohibition is not
the cure. Absolute stoppage of
its manufacture is the only red
and uflicncious one. When the
temperance element begin to realize
that it is better to cut nt thu root
of the tree than snip among it
branches, brunches that too of tin
glow out again tifter pruning, and
yet the tree maintaining its full
strength mid vigor, from that Una
will date the downfall of liquor
Somehow prohibition in pluvi
does not materially or proportion
ntely reduce the total consumption
of liquor, and therefore fails of its
purpose. Liquor is something of
which there is absolutely 110 need
It has been clearly demonstrated

There are other pertinent rvusons

Due rwisoii, and 11 potent one, why
some hiiHinuM) men o " busted " in
St. Jolins is hucnute they do not or
do not know how to advertise in m
judicious and suceewiful manner
Tlmy fail to tell the public what
they hnve to sell anil the price at
which it amy be secured. The
successful stores in Portland iu;ik?
110 such mistake. After nil is inid,
however, credit busiuesK is the
quickest route to oblivion, It is
said thnt the combined credits of
two stouts thnt failed in St. Johns
totaled more tlmn Tl 6,000. That
being the case, how could they
succeed? Why do not people my
up uetter r mm a strange tuct is
that among these unpaid book ac
counts can be found the names of
some steady church attendants. A
heavy drinker con wcure but little
credit. Again, more trade goes to
Portland than many imagine, sunt
there has been more competition
along certain lines of business than
called for by the traffic, When
all is summed up, instead of there
being one chief reason for failure,
there are many, all contributing a
snare to the undoing. It is the
same the world over, und not con
fined to St. Johns. Some will suc
ceed where others fail.
