Ono of tbo iaker at lAto temperance
meeting in Oregon City, presented a view of
tho licenso yaloni which must comincnu
iUc-lf lo every candid mind. It was tliii :
First If tho twflio ia iutoxiuitinj; si.ir
iU u bovcrago, U u tbo rumitc mnintuiu,
riglit, thco it ought to bo left frco'nnd tin
tramelod liko tlio trnflic in dry good, pro
duce, or any oilier necowary article of trodo.
And thoso wbo cngiigo in tlio trufllo are
just men, andoufe'lit to enjoy all tho im
munities of citiznlii). In this case tho li
cense eyntoni makes, invidious distinctions
between freemen and equals, and is therefore
wholly wrong, unjust and unequal.
SoconJIy. If however tho traffic, U as
the Temperance party contend, and at the
licence system ema to imply, wholly
wrong, then to throw around it tho protec
tion of law, is to plight tho faith of the
country to wrongdoing. Hunco in this
view the license system is wholly and rad
really wrong. So that take it which way
we will the license system is wrong and
ought to be repudiated from our legislation.
This representation of tho subject is
worthy of sober reflection. If tho license
system is anti-republican and morally wrong
is it not high time that wo should adopt a
mora consistent mode of legislation on this
subject. Total prohibition is just tho thing,
feolvemcy af Wells, Yars C.
Wo have received a circular frdm Wells,
Fargo Se Co. calling our attention to the "se
curities and facilities" of their firm, as Ex
press forwarders, Commission agents and
Tho circular sets forth that they have a
joint stock cimh capital of $300,000, and
that the whole "joint capital and property of
thecompany," together with the "whole ag
gregate personal property and reaponsibili
ty of the share-holders, stand pledged for
its engagements." . : t !
The circular goes on to mention various
other matters connected with the constitu
tion of the firm, which operate as strong
guarantees for tho security of thoso who
transact business with thcin.
A circular of this sort seems very well
timid in theso days, when tho bones of
bodies corpornto in every direction, are
yielding to the dreadful pressure in the
money market, and being crushed in like
the ribs of a spidor under the foot of a
giant. Wo hope tho iron skeleton of Wells,
p'nrgo & Co., will, liko that of the ancient
Mastodon, yield to nothing short of light
ning. STWa are authorize.! lo announce WM. W.
I'.OONE, as a candidate for joint representative
from folk and Tilluinouk, lubject to the majority
uf the votes cast next June.
