Dr. Newell D wight Hillis' Sunday Sermon
TO THOSE YOUNG STRANGERS NEWLY COME
TO SEEK THEIR FORTUNE IN THE CITY
You must not lire below the level of
your early life.
Remembering what your fathers
hare been, you cannot afford to he an
idler, a spendthrift, tapster or a pleasure-seeker.
You must be a man.
It in not enough to keep the place
you have; to succeed you must out
grow It. Promotion begins with de
Attfccrt rourself and guard your Indi
viduality. Self-reliance trill turn a wilesrrmn
into a merchant, a politician into a
rtatcMnan, an attorney Into a Jurist,
an unknown youth into a great leader.
The things that destroy man are
worry, stuff and haziness. The things
that save men are bleep, exercise and
Above all else, keep faith with your
fathers' God. If you stumble and fall,
lift the flaming torch and rekindle It
that It may burn brighter than ever.
Love upward, never downward.

GOING up and down the streets of
our city, during these days, all
thoughtful observers are deeply Im
pressed by the throngs of young men and
woman. An army of gifted youth, dur
ing these Autumn days, has Just come up
to the city to make fortune and fame.
New faces are seen everywhere, Jn counting-room
and store. In church and school.
In the lecture halls of the college of law
and medicine. In the olden time, on the
Autumnal day, the people of the city -went
to the wharf, and with sobs and .tears
sent away a boatload of their best be
loved youth to appease the anger of the
monster and feed Its hungry maw. But
now it is the country and the little town
that mourn, for the city with its gold,
Its art, Its music, it eloquence. Its com
merce, after long tugs at the heart
strings, have drawn the youth away from
the old home. The coming of these new
tides of life will freshen the Jaded and
exhausted currents of the city. Finan
ciers are rejoicing because a current of
geld has sot In from the Old "World to
wards this one. The city may need the
gold for Its exchange and the moving of
Its harvests, but the coming of this com
pany of strong young men and ambitious
young women, means -more than the re
turn of the yellow metal.
For all these young hearts, the early
days In the city are days of destiny. Af
ter long consideration, and many a flm
ilj council, at last the youth decided to
leavo forever the old familiar life. Be
holding these young strangers within our
gates, one thinks of Robert Louis Steven
ran, standing In front of the college that
had long been the Mecca of his dreams,
while regret for the past and hope for the
future struggle In his heart for the mas
ters'. We recall also the farewell be
tween David Livingstone and his father.
On the morning of the final parting, the
boy and his father walked to the hill-top,
beyond which stood the coach which was
to carry the youth to the city. "Do noth
ing unworthy of your mother, and the old
home" Then the Scotch father turned
sharply on his heel turned but stood in
his tracks. "When the son disappeared be
yond the horizon, he could still see the
father standing silent. The boy went
away from him to make his fortunebut
the father could not go away from the
boy, Oh. what an hour Is that -when a
OREGON'S FIRST FIGHT
As Early as 1845 tho Provisional Legislature Enacted
IDESPREAD attention given to
temperance, and particularly the
Temperance Congress recently held
at the Lewis and Clark Fair, prompt me
to set down for Information to the present
generation -the efforts made to promote
temperance and Prohibition in the pioneer
days of Oregon. Not many know that
Oregon had a Prohibition law that was
passed in December, 1S45, by the Legis
lature of Oregon, which antedates by sev
eral years 'Maine's famous Prohibition
The first recorded effort attempted in
Oregon to prevent the sale of intoxicating
liquors that I have any knowledge of Is
given In Dr. Nixon's ."How Marcus Whit
man Saved Oregon," and is contained in
a letter dated Oregon City, February 14,
187S, written by Hon. A L. Lovejoy to Dr.
Nixon. These are his words:
4 1 crossed the plains in company with
Pr White, and others, and arrived at
Waillatpu the last of September, 1842. My
party camped somd two miles below Dr.
Whitman's , place.
"The day aHer our arrival Dr. Whitman
called nt our camp and asked me to ac
company him to his house, as he wished
me to draw up a memorial to Congress to
prohibit the sale of ardent spirits in this
country. The doctor was alive to the in
terests of this Coast, and manifested a
very warm desire to have it properly
represented at Washington."
I am not Informed as to whether such
memorial was presented, and have no
knowledge of any public meetings being
held in Oregon to promote temperance

During these Autumn days the birds
are leaving their nests, and making ready

Following is the leading article by Edi
tor T. Vault, of the Oregon Spectator, In
the issue of March 19, 1S4G:
THE LIQUOR LAW.
Much interest appears to be manifested in
the community upon the subject of the law
that passed the Legislature at the last De
cember session, as published In the first
number of the Spectator, "to prevent the
introduction, sale and distillation of ardent
spirits in Oregon.-" We. are well satisfied
that if ardent spirits could be prohibited
from belnc etthe.- introduced or manufac
tured la Oregon It would' add much t the
of days and habit? and convictions and
duties. Remembering what your fathers
have been, you cannot afford to be an
idler, a spendthrift, a tapster, or a plea
sure seeker. You must be a man. "It is
your first duty to grow," said John Milton
to a young friend. The old home will
offor you the patterns and the models of
manhood, toward which you may well
arplre. Make the old life, therefore, and
the new life to be Integral parts of a
richer and bettor life, a life unified by tho
faiths and convictions and Ideals of your,
Bo Ambitions for Advancement.
These early days also are days for am
bition and for strengthening the determi
nation to get up and to get on. It Is
not enough to keep the place you have
to succeed you must outgrow it. Promo
tion begins with deserving it. Do not
think that the great chances are all
takon. Soon every great door of hope
will be open. Tomorrow, or on tomorrow's
tomorrow, opportunity will fling wide her
gates, and he who is ready may enter In.
If you soon master every detail of the
prosont position, and crowd your work
and put your superintendent at his wits
endto keep you busy, you can soon force
advancement. It is given to a little wed,
by working, to lift the paving toae. and
.you- cannot keep down an ambitious,
faithful and hard-working boy. "Why
didn't you give me that position?" said a
disappointed clerk to his employer. "Well,
to tell the truth, I never thought of you
in connection with it" "Haven't I done
my work well?" "Yes, you have always
done your work well; so well that you
never gave me an occasion to think about
you; but this young man. having dene his
work well, kept asking mo for more, and
made me kcp him in mind." Old mer

peace and happiness of the people as well as
to the prosperity of the country.
The first grand object of all governments
should be to establish for themselves the
fundamental principles of government, de
nning the grant of powers extended ta each
department In short, commanding that to
be done which ought to be done by either of
the departments of government. Notwith
standing we view the government of Oregon
as only temporary, brought about for the
protection and regulation of our citizens
until such time as the United States shall
extend her Jurisdiction and protection, yet
ther is as much necessity and the laws
should be Just as binding and enforced with
as much energy as If Oregon had assumed a
stand among ihe nations of tho earth as an
independent nation. It Is contended by many
and It may be fa. that the 'law on ardent
spirit is unconstitutional, but the only legal
way to ascertain that fact Is to refer the
matter to the Supreme Judge. Would It not
be more expedient to make an effort to
enforce the law and let the issue be decided
the proper authority?
Great excitement on any subject Is in

Account of a prohibition meeting, taken
from the Issue of the Oregon Spectator
of March 13, JS1G:
At a large and respectable meeting of
the ladies and gentlemen of Oregon Cltv,
held In the Methodist Church on Thurs
day evening, the 12th Inst., the following
resolutions were adopted. On motion 'of
W. H. Gray, Esq., Colonel Taylor was
called to the chair. On motion of . F.
Hedges J. S. Rlnearson was appointed
secretary of the meeting.
Colonel Taylor, the chairman, then
called upon Mr. Gray to state the object
of the meeting, who arose and said that
the law In relation to ardent spirits had
been for some time, and was now, dally
violated, and that the object of this meet
ing was to arouse public sentiment, and
appoint a committee ot vigilance, whose
special duty it should be to seo that the
liquor law was fully enforced.
The Rev. George Gary was then called
on, who offered the following resolution:
"Resolved, That the peace and tfapplr
ness of the mothers, wives and daughters
of Oregon are Involved in the fato of the
law on ardent spirits," which was sus
tained without opposition after a touch
ing and affectionate address by the
mover of the resolution.
Tho Rev. Lewis Thompson was then
called for, who arose and offered a reso
lution as follows:
"Resolved. That the tinconRtralned uw
of intoxicating liquors in this country
would retard Its future prosperity more
than all other causes combined."
The reverend gentlemen having offered
some pertinent remarks,, the vote was
taken on the resolution, which was sus
tained. Mr. Davidson was then called on, who
delivered a very animated address, and
then offered the following resolution:
VResoIved, That as citizens we will
rally to the rescue of our laws, to the
support of our Magistrates, and to the
entire destruction of alcohol."
This resolution was adopted.
The Rev. Mr. Parrish was then called,
who proposed the following resolution:
"Resolved, That the continuance of
peace and friendship among ourselves and
with the natives among us, depends on
the strict enforcement of the law on ar
The resolution was sustained after a
neat and appropriate address from Its
Elder H. Johnson Was then called, who
chants in Philadelphia tell a story about
John Wanamaker'e youth. Begtnnlng at
14 the boy worked for his employer until
he was 21. One morning he appeared In
his employer's office and said: "I am 2L
I would like to become a partner in the
business " The man was amazed, for the
youth had no capital. "I will promote
you." said his employer, v "and I will
double your salary." "No, no. In seven
years I have learned every detail about
this store, from manufacturing, buying
and selling, to financing. I have deter
mined that I will work for nobody but
John Wanamaker after I am 21." Now
between the lines of this Incident are
hidden all the golden secrets of success.
Be Yourself and Assimilate What
the City Has to Offer.
Assert yourself, and guard your indi
viduality. Many young men are over
whelmed and Injured by the greatness of
tho city. Too much wood smothers tho
fire; excess of food breaks down the di
gestion. Too much knowledge turns a
youth Into an intellectual glutton, and
leaves him at last a fecbllng. The young
stranger In the city may well go slowly,
little by little, form his opinions, slowly
canvass his Judgments, while preserving
the habit of deciding things for himself.
Reflect, reflect, and still reflect, that you
may nourish your own Individuality. Alas
for the youth who drifts, waits for his
companion's opinion, goes to the news
papers for his convictions, and echoes the
Judgment of the crowd. What the city
wants is young men of self-reliance, who
arrive at their conclusions on independ
ent lines. Self-reliance will turn a sales
man Into a merchant, a politician Into a
statesman, an attorney Into a Jurist, an
unknown youth Into a great leader. Who
are to be tomorrow's- leaders? They who
In solitude "sit above the 'dust and clang
of time, with the world's secret trem
bling on their Hps."
. Strengthen the Gun Carriage.
Modern life Is a contest,' and often a
kind of battle. Victory is to htm who has
the strongest reserves. Soldiers know that
xno explosion of the powder to hurl tht
ball forward is very hard on the gun car
riage that is pushed back. Many lawyers
and teachers and preachers. In exploding
tholr ideas, kick thplr own brains out.
The change from the out-of-door life of
the country and village Is very severe for
the youth who is a newcomer to the great
city. Some of us have long ago learned
that the Intellectual life means two hours
every day in the open air. If today you
cannot get IU by reason of some emer
gency, then double the cxcrclso tomorrow.
The things that destroy men are worry,
stuff and laziness. The things that save
men are sleep, exercise and work. Guard
your body, therefore, as an engineer
guards bis engine, oiling.lt and- rubbing
It. arid studying It, and loving It. Run
the human mechanism as It should be
run, feed the fires carefully, and It will
last you 70 years, as It moves to and fro
through the earth. Neglect It, arid the
wear and tear of the city, with Its dust
and smoke and noise and hard streets
will soon send the engine to the waste
heap. If you want to know the sorrow
of a gifted youth who has broken down
in the great city, read William Watson's
poem on "Work Without Health." Above
all else, keep faith with your father's
God. If you stumble and fall, lift the
flaming torch and rekindle "Mt, that It
may burn brighter than ever. Find a
church home at once. Make, friends by
showing yourself friendly, helping those
who have less opportunities than your
self, making friendships with those who
are wiser and better than yourself. Love
upward, never downward. Believe in your
hopes and dreams. Be an optimist. Keep
sweet. Rejoice In the success of others.
Practice cheerfulness. Give more happi
ness than you get. Soon the city will
make a place for you. When the harvest
Is all In, you will find that 'life has been
richer, happier and more successful than
j you ever dreamed.
offered and sustained the following reso
lution by an able address:
"Resolved, That no man has a right to
offer to his fellow man, either as a bev
erage, gift or for gain, any article that
he knows from experience, or from testi
mony of others, tends to injure or deprive
his follow man of a single right, privilege,
power or faculty."
Mr. Barlow was then called who offered
the following resolution, which he sus
tained by a short ingenious address:
"Resolved. That every friend of the
human family will oppose the reign of
King Alcohol with all his power, and
even friend of good order In Oregon will
oppose to the utmost of his ability the
use of ardent spirits, as a drink and wil
have for his motto, "peaceably If we
can; Jbut forcibly if wc must."
Mr. Gray then proposed that a commit
tee of vigilance, consisting of six, be ap
pointed, whereupon the following gentle
men were named by the chairman as
members of the " committee, namely,
Messrs. Gray, Crawford. Robb. Barlow,
Hood and Engle. The following resolu
tion was then adopted:
"Resolved. That the secretary bo In
