SUBJECT OF WHAT THE PEOPLE
REALLY WANT CALLS FORTH
QUESTION Of PARTITIONS UNSETTLED
In the Mind of Some Who Want to
Be Fair to All SalooniaU,
Giving No Advant
There waa considerable discussion
the city over Tuesday concerning
what Council will or will not do In
the matter of open fronts to saloons.
The fact that there had been many
people preaent at the meeting In the
Council chamber Monday evening In
dicates that many citizens were inter
ested In the outcome. ,- .
The points over which ther seemed
to be considerable doubt aa to Just
what ought to be done" In the matter
were aa to tho permission of a grill
with a partition between and Uie
helghth of the screen at the saloon
front. The ultra temperance men did
not like tho Idea of any partition, even
If It did run horizontal to the aireet
line and not parallel. They also
Beamed very obstinate In their deter
mination for a four-foot screen.
But the more the temperance people
aeem to atudy this question the more
willing they seem to be to look at the
question from both sides of vantage,
which is a hopeful sign to aay the
The question brought out In tho dis
cussion of the subject on the street
Tuesday was concerning what the tem
perance people really do want In the
matter of the height of the screen.
Local temperance people certainly
want what la for the beat Is the way
one man put It. The question, then,
is to determine to the temperance
man's satisfaction Just what I best.
Th story waa being told on the
street Tuesday that in Vancouver
there la a provision for an open front
down to the pavement line. Thla waa
In vogue but few week until the
temperance people - demanded that
while the law aald there must be glass
tronU Ihey - desired . that, the glaaa
fronts be curtained off, and thla was
done-and la atlll don. If thl Is true
It may be well for Oregon City tem
perance people to study this phase of
the question at this time rather than
Another citizen called attention to
the fact that to require no partition
parallel with the street but absolutely
horizontal would put all but two or
three saloon men out of the restaurant
or grill business because of the con
formation of their rooms and build
ings. This, he thought, waa unfair
and giving those two men an unfair
advantage. He believed in the open
front, he said, but that It should be
Instituted in such a manner that It
would not favor one or two and put
at a disadvantage all tho rest of th
saloonists. ' v
It was suggested that Council and a
few of the men so anxious for the
open front and the alngle partition to
make a trip to Salem and Vancouver"
for a study of the conditions aa they
really are In those two cities; It was
said that those who went could at
least see things as they really are un
der conditions approximating what Is
wanted In thia city. He waa of the
opinion that If a temperance man had a
hobby and was shown thai it was an
unwise hobbv he had faith enough In
the honesty of the temperance man to
concede that th reform waa not really
what It seemed at a distance.
That other feature proposed by
Councilman Pope, that Council and
the temperance people also If they
wish visit the saloons and see the
form of the buildings, the arrange
ment of the doors and windows, the
way things will be once the open rront
Is Instituted, he thought would open
the eyes of some aa to how matters
stand now. This feature of the pro
posed Information hunt appealed to
more than one who talked on the sub
ject, and several expressed It that they
would gladly go along under thoae
circumstances while under no other
would they visit' a ealoon.
