Alternate Car Service
Alternating car service on the
loop, which the Portland Rail
way, Light nnu rower uo. is
seriously considering and which
is quite probablo boforo the win
ter rains sot in, would bo of in
estimablo vnluo to many people
in bt. Johns. isach car would
alternate, one going around the
.loon ono way, and tho next car
making tho loop the other way.
This would enable people on the
south sido of tho loop to como to
tho business district and shop,
miss ono car and return direct
homo; people on tho north sido
of tho loop would havo tho same
advantage. As the average car
service is now sixteen minutes
apart, on an average every 82
minutes one could make tho trip
from East St. Johns or South St.
Johns and have plenty of timo
to shop in the interim. Coming
to the stores, banks, places of
amusement, schools, library or
churches, tho alternate service
would prove a great convenience.
People on tho south sido of the
loop and central part of the city
could then take a car going to
north sido and ride within three
blocks of tho depot to catch the
Northern Pacific, Great North
ern or North Bank trains with
out having now, ride outside
of their city, transfer at Wall
street, miss car and stand in
tho rain fifteen minutes to get
back to same placo that thoy can
go to in five minutes by direct
service. Time cards could be
made showing which way each
car goes, so that a party could
take a car from -St. Johns and
go to any part of the city wislu
ed on the north or south side of
the loop. From Portland one
wishing to go to St. 'Johns
Heights or to Oswego street stop
could do so by taking the car go
ing that way, each car being
marked "North" or "South."
St. Johns merchants loae much
business from both sides of the
Iooq by parties waiting to do
their shopping when they go to
Portland, rather than walk back
"after going to St. Johns in the
hot sunshine or wet winter
weather, it is said. Block sig
nal system and sidetracks that
will have to put in for alternat
ing service .will be of great ben
efit in case of break down on
either side of loop, and the cars
could operate with safety on one
side while repairs were going
on on the other side of the loop.
The Commercial club has been
quite active in advancing this
service, and it now seems that
their efforts will be crowned
with success before . the year is
War on-the Social Evil
Gradually wo are groping our
way toward the true remedies
for the social evil. One state
and city .after another has held
an inquiry into the subject. The
investigators have sought out
the roots of the evil and there is
general agreements as to the
principal remedial mensures.
As we read the report of ono
vice commissioner after another
ami as we study one article after
another, we are impressed with
a sense of shame at the brutal
stupidity and the abject failure
of all attempts for centuries
back to deal with the problem of
prostitution. The central idea
of all restrictive, regulutivc and
suppressive laws hitlierlo lias
been to punish the victim of
man's evil deeds and to let the
evil doer uo scot free except for
what awl ui revenge the victim
may tako by transmitting to one
man disease she has contracted
from another.
Our laws relating to proslitu
tion are the last survival of sin
very in the lands which boast
most loudly of their civilization.
In old times conquerors took
women as slaves to minister to
their passions, just as they took
mon to labor for them. Foreign
women filled Rome's first re
stricted district. Houses of evil
were frankly licensed, some were
even built and owned by the state
far into the middle ages. Then
the conscience began to prick
and nations made a pretense of
suppression, branding tho fallen
women as criminals and vaga
bonds. This only afforded a
cloak to the police to blackmail
them and to drive them into
segregated districts for greater
convenience in blackmailing.
In some European cities there
has been n relapse to regulation
under license, but it has orought I
only a fraction of tho women un
der strict control. Medical ex
amination has been adopted, noti
out of regard to the women, but,
for protection ot their male pat
rons. All these measures seg
regation licensing, medical ex-
aminnt'on and registration
have failed, for the great major
ity of the women evado them by
every uevico known to lemaio
The outcast condition of these
women fins placet! them at the
mercy ot those who, while pro
tecting them, prey upon them.
Hence hasarisemthe white slave

ported from country to country.
trom state to state and irom city
to city. The Federal Govern
ment has begun effective war on
this traffic by prosecuting the
men engaged in it and is secur
ing one conviction a day. But
this work must be followed up
by the states and cities in order
to make it effective. Even then
we shall have onlyt touched the
fringe of the evil. Vice com
missions in several cities have
shown a keener realization of
the right way to grapple with it
by proposing to treat prostitutes
as subjects for medical care, re
formation, education and train
ing in useful vocations, not as
criminals. That policy would
take the women out of the vile
houses and, if those houses could
be kept clear of the traffic, the
opportunity to rent property for
such purposes would be destroy
ed. But in order to do that, the
supply of women for white sla
very must be stopped.' There
we come to the root of the evil.
That root is the unbridled passion
of men gratifying itself at the
expense of weak women. The
In the World of Fashion
able Dress
Can you think of anything
neater or more attractive than
the simple costumes shown here? j
And what is still butter, the
making or construction of either;
is as easy as it looks.
The first dress Nos. 7800-7807, 1
is composed of a little droit
shoulder blouse which closes in:
front, and a skirt of the two
piece type. Do you note the
slight fullness in the skirt, and
the general outline which sug
gests the now thoroughly favor
ed peg top effect? Well, that is
produced by the soft plaits laid !
at the top and foot of the skirt, !
and while it is an extremely cle- j
ver idea, it is at tho same time:
the simplest thing in the world 1
to do. A word must be said of i
the cute little inset vest of the
blouse, which with the shapely
Robespierre collar are exceeding
ly pretty features of this model.
Despite its being illustrated
in (lowered silk, ' which is cer
tainly suitable for this style, there
are yet a great many other ma
terials in old blue, golden brown
moire, poplin or colienne. If
you want it real summery look
ing, choose any of tho different
dimities and printed lawns,
which aro simply adorable this
season. Pattern for blouse
comes in live sizes, 'l to M, and
you will require for tho medium
size five yurds if you uso 42 inch1

realize the consemionce of their
first lapse and, even if thoy did,
very many of them lack the
strength of will to resist the im
portunities of men.
The true beginnings are in ra
tional instruction of both boys
and girls in tho secret of sex, in
parental care and restraint oVer
children, in supervision of pub
lic places of entertainment, by
inspiring boys with respect for
womanhood and girls with re
spect for themselves. The law
and all its officers should enforce
the same code of morality for
men as for women, severely pun

bation it now visits upon his vic

encouraged and young couples
should be taught contentment

as well as men, who will act as
friendly monitors to the young

A Communication
Mr. Editor:
Would it not bo
institu-jsupremest confidence in tho ofli
cials, but it is a matter of inter
est to tho taxpayers 'to know
just how the school monoy is ox
ponded. Ono might hear it read
at one of tho public school meet
ings, but tho opportunity of scan
ning tho various items and re
membering same is very slight
from hearing a verbal reading.
Why not publish an annual de
tailed statement, tho same as
the city officials do?
(We understand the school
board intends to publish a finan
cial statement soon. As a rule
a statement is published every
year, but this year it will ap
pear later than usual. Ed.)

Published in tho St. Joluit Re
view July IS, 25 and August 1,
bo long remembered in SLJohnit,
as in all occasions, ttnamially
and otherwise, it was a complete
success. We had the biggest
celebration in the Stale of Ore
gon, more attractions and more
amusoments than St. Johns had
ever seen before, and any town
twice it sine would be fortu
nate in having such a celebra
tion. The stranger that came to
St. Johns for the IthundSth left
with the impression that St.
Johns was on the map, for you
could hear in every corner of the
city about the beautiful decora
tions, which no doubt could not
be excelled, and the Are boys
cannot express thanks enough
to the city council and Commer
cial club for the decorations,
which made the celebration long
to be romomhorod, and the peo
ple who left St. Johns on that day
for other places of pleasure were
sorry when they came home and
heard of the doings. The fire
boys did not want the celebra
tion from a financial standpoint.
The Doparlmoul wants to thank
again the banks and manufactu
res which gave so liberally,
which had no direct compensa
tion, aUo the St. Johns Review,
livonng Tologiiuu and Journal
for their efforts in makinir the
colobration a success. P. G. Gil
moro, chairman, called up the
city editor of the Oregonian by
phone and told him he was chair
man of tho Fourth of July Com
mittee in St. Johns and would
like to be represented in his pa
per and also would like to have
ono of his reporters to judge our
floats and buildings on the 4th.
A voico in a low tone replied:
"No. you got some one else." in
anything hut a pleasant voire.

cheerfully gavo us a good boost

which it has our thanks.
