. r.-jgS CLOSING 01 ' SALEM.;': J
By special ordinance, the Salem
4city council has ordered '. the en
' forcement of all laws prohibiting
gambling and the ordinance re
quiring saloons to be , closed on
Sunday. . The act is in line with
the tendency of the time. ; An ev
olution is taking place in society in
which gambling is coming moretobe
and more detested as a baneful and
wholly indefeneible practice. A
common and universal ', 'conviction
seems settling upon people at last,
that misery, and wretchedness
is the certain and sole fruit of the
gaming table. A quiet but deep
rooted belief is possessing orderly
men that the practice with its
temptation and debauch men t of
young men and its wretchedness
! for those dependent upon older
men should be thrust out of the
doors of society. It has come to
be understood that the creature
who makes it his business to sub
sist on the result - of his play at
cards pr otherwise, is in fact a more
dangerous man to society than is
the bandit on the lonely Toa.d, or
the midnight thief who steals' only
material things afcd leaves the hu
man soul unharmed. One is an incar
nated devil plundering here and
and ruining . there, , always- under
the toleration if not under protec
tion of the law and the law's min
ifons, while the other ' injures the
mental and physical in men only
in the rarest instances, and then
under stress of circumstances,
These truths are insinuating them
selves slowly but surely into the
minds of men, and the result is a
quiet but general movement to
banish the hideous business : forev
er.-r' i- -
' A similar movement, tending to
narrower use of intoxicants is
likewise observable. Decadence of
the traffic is easily seen in the dim
fcished. number of shops and in th
gradual but " certain 'narrowing
down of the privilege by stricter
enforcement of the regulations, of
which Salem is a new and import
ant instance. Education, that sur
est and best asset of reform', is
silently but certainly doing it's
work,-r-a work to benefit not only
the coming but the present ' gener
ation. .BILLS ALLOWED.

A vile case was-tH fo a -hearing

day morning. - The - defendant was
James Guier : of, the ' vicinity of
Blodgett; and by; his own admis
sions, he is guilty of both , adultery
and rape. His victim is below the
age of sixteen, her youth being the
fact that fixes the offense as crimi
nal rape. The complaint was lodg
ed with the officers by her brother.
According to the testimony the
brother and sister were enroute to
Job's addition from Main ' street,
when they were met by Guier. On
some pretext, Guier indnced the
brother to return to town. After
the brother left, Guier and the sis
ter went to a shack on , the block
in which Judge. Greffbz 5 resides,
and the two remained there Satur
day nightand all day Sunday. The
brother, as soon as his sister was
missed, instituted ' search, , visiting
all the churches Sunday evening
in the hunt. ' He finally discover'
ed the horrible truth and reported
the fact to the officers.
' Guier is a married . man, about
26 years of age. By his . own ad

guilty, the law'prescribes the pen

ITS FIRST SETTLER.
And Sometb ing About Monroe Glimpse
' at Its Enterprise and History.
One of the biggest business places
for its size in Oregon, is Monroe,
in the southern part of Benton. The
town has a population of about 100
souls. The Coast range Mountains
are west and the Cascades are to
to the east. The first settlement in
the vicinity was' by ' R. B. Henton,
father of Wesley Hinton.the latter of
whom is one of the present residents
of the town. ' The site of the town
however is not the donation 'land
claim of . James. Manning, . which
was afterward sold to White Bro
thers'. In those days there were no
roads, but there was an old Indian
trail extending up . and down the
Willamette valley and into Califor
nia, by way of which" some of the
settlers came. , '; ".y-' . .
The first store in Monfoe was es
tablished by Silas Belknap. v It was
later sold to SQeorge,- Starr, ' but
finally burned down. It had suc
cessors however, and by reason of
the fact that the place is in the cen
ter of a large section of excellent
country, all of them have joyed
an extensive trade. At ,-present
there is a large flouring mill and
two warehouses owned by A. Wil
helm and Sons', a general merchan
dise store owned by the same firm,
a general store owned by J. T. Car
penter, a shoe shop owned by E. J.
Martin and a hotel and livery
stable, conducted by C. Looney.
Steamboats have - ascended the
Long Tom river on 'which Monroe
is " situated as ' far as the
town, but navigation to that point
is irregular. A dam ' across . the
Long Tom supplies the water power
for running the flouring mill plant.
White fish and other small fish are
caught in nets below the dam dur
ing the months of. November and
December. . 1 ;
The town has a large and commo
dious school building, with a school
attendance of about 'fifty." There
are churches of the Methodist and
Catholic denominations. For sev
eral years the town has been with
out a saloon. : "
The chief industry is the manu
facture of flour, and the surroun
ding country is devoted almost ex
clusively to farming and stock rais

The hair and skin of the beast

which remain fastened to theekull,

brought by them to compel the
court to make an " order reducing
the assessment of the C & E. rail

party claimed that the valuation of
the company's road bed and other
property had been advanced 150 per
cent, ana mat u s assessment is
excessive. - .The valuation of -the
track wasraised from $1000 per inile
to $2500 per mile, and the whole
valuation from $54,000 to $149,000
On account of the lower levy the
increase in the company's taxes
is not so great as the increase in
valuation. The amount last
year was about $1,600 and
this year, $1,900. . .. . , .

party ceased firing, and called for a
parley.. Then the court announced
that it would be impossible to grant
the prayer of the besiegers, asking
a red uc; ion of the assessment,,:
The railroad company claims it
will go to the circuit court with the
matter, and that there it will , get
the relief sought.
MAHARA'S BIG MINSTRELS.
What the Oakland Times Says of the
Show Tuesday Night. '
! Mahara's big minstrels opened a
week's engagement at the Dewey
to a crowded house last night and
was pronounced by the large " au
dience as one of the best colored
minstrels they had ever seen.
In most colored minstrels ; the
funny part of the performance is
much over done, but in this one
if is carried on in" such a manner
that never fails to please an audi
ence. The introduction of lady
actors into minstrels takes out that
ancient efiect. for every theatre
goer; is tired of the bid time mins
trel show. . '':''.
One of the featuresof the evening
was John A- English, the marvel
ous hoop controller, in his line of
work is an artist. ' ,He received
great applause for good work. As
for the danang, . these : entertain
ments have no equal. : In fact, -ey;.
ery act was far above the average.
The strong feature and far the
best, was the closing after part, a
light opera, ' -Dusky Maidens,"
fetching into display the .whole
bevy of ladies and . gentlemen in
swell costumes, in choruses, march
es, cake, walking. '. :
Mahara's have about the best
chorus show seen in Oakland this
season and do doubt will test the.
capacity of the Dewey the balance
of the week. Oakland Times, Feb.
