Punitive Clause Purposely
Omitted From Prohibition
Act as Safeguard.
Liquor Interests 'May Test Klection
Before Supreme Court Breweries
Likely to Be Changed Into
': Various Factories.
Now that the people of Oregon have
Toted to abolish the liquor traffic it
remains for the Legislature to pass
law providing penalties for violations
of the prohibition amendment.
The framers of the prohibition
amendment adopted at Tuesday's elec
tion purposely omitted provision for
penalties. They were advised by able
attornevs that this function or gov
eminent properly belongs to the Leg
islature of the state. While It would
have been possible for the people, by
their vote, to tlx a penalty, it is
nninteart nut thut the measure as passed
by the people will stand the test of
constitutionality, while. Baa 11 carrieu
a penalty clause, its constitutionality
Tnlcrht have been Questioned.
Notwithstanding that some of the
best constitutional lawyers in the state
have declared the amendment as adopt
ed is valid in every particular, it is un
derstood that some of the interests op
posed to prohibition are preparing to
carry the new law to the Supreme
Court to test Its validity.
Drya Ready for Fight.
The prohibition forces are ready to
meet just such an emergency. They are
Bupplied with ready funds and have the
command of some of the best legal tal
ent in the state. They will defend the
amendment, they declare, to the last
Am a mater of fact the liauor inter
ests have laid out' no programme of
their own and may acquiesce to the
voice of the people in silence. Only a
few of the most radical of their num
ber now are talking of carrying the
case to the Supreme Court.
The saloon Interests seemed fully
confident of success at the polls Tues
lay and made no plans beyond going
to the polls and voting against pro
hibition. They were not prepared for
defeat and do not know just exactly
what they will do.
Another step that the saloon inter
ests now are considering is to go be
fore the coming session of the Legis
lature and insist on enactments against
the liquor traffic even more drastic
than those the people have adopted.
"Double Dose" Outlined.
They want to bottle up the state air
tight, they say, and make it impossible
to ship liquor into the state and a fel
ony for anyone to take a drink in the
state. In other words, they want to
give the people such a strict set of
prohibition laws and such rigid en
forcement of those laws that they will
sicken and tire of regulation and gladly
restore the liquor traffic as a means of
relieving their restricted liberties.
J. E. Wheeler, chairman of the com
mittee of 100, which played an import
ant part in the success of the prohibi
tion movement, says that so far as that
organization 13 concerned, no legisla
tive programme has been mapped out.
It is probable that none will be out
lined. "That is something for the Legisla
ture Itself to do," he said yesterday.
"We have obtained no promises from
any of the individual members and
asked for none. '.
"Prohibition has been adopted by the
overwhelming vote of the people, and
I think the legislators will appreciate
what their constituents want, regard
less of what their own personal preju
dices on the question may be.
Legislature Relied t'bn.
"Every county in the state seems to
have voted for prohibition, so I think
there can be no mistaking the senti
ment of the people. If the Legislature
acts in accordance vith the wishes of
the people expressed at the polls Tues
day there will be Jlttle difficulty in
obtaining the kind of legislation to
make the new amendment effective."

Evan Williams, America's greatest concert tenor, 'who sings at the
Helllg Sunday at 3 o'clock under the direction of Steers & Coraan, has
"a voice wonderful In its modulations, expressing the rapture and
human appeal of song in a way that plays upon the heartstrings
strangely," according to music critics. ' t
A novel feature of his programme will be a group of Welsh songs,
showing he gift of melody and wealth of poetry that exists in that
nation. "" ';
Mr. Williams maintains that the Welsh Is a most musical and melo
dious language, suited la every way to vocal beauty of utterance,
and he will prove this to be the case by his delightful singing of
Welsh songs.

Attorney-General Says '"Trust" Need
Xot Be Eliminated.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 6. (Special.) Attorney-General
Crawford, in an opin
ion today asked by State Superintend
ent of Banks Sargent, held that banks
which changed their names after the
passage of the trust company act, be
lieving that 'it was necessary for them
to eliminate the word "trust," may file
supplemental articles of Incorporation
so as to resume the old names. The
Supreme Court recently held that the
trust company act, so far as the names
of 'banking, institutions were concerned,
only applied to those banks established
since the law became effective.
Banks, Mr. Crawford said, which did
a trust company business before the
trust company act became operative,
may continue that business without
complying with the act.

Liquor Shipment Permitted.
Inasmuch as the new law does not
prohibit the distribution of liquor with
in the state it will be possible after
the amendment goes into effect on Jan
uary 1, 1916, to have it shipped in from
outside sources provided the recipient
signs an affidavit that It is not to be
Bold, but to be put only to personal
use. The word, 'distribution was pur
