JProplem 'Dry" Area Likely
to Spread This Tear.
ROSEBUKG. Or.t May 16. (Special.)
t the coming June election it is general
ly conceded by the liquor men that
Douglas County will go dry by a large
majority. The question will be voted on
by the county as a whole and separately
by the precinrts of Scottsburg, Canyon
villc. and Myrtle Creek, the three named
precincts being dry at the present time.
The county also, as a whole is about two
thirds dry. The dry element claim it
will carry eveny precinct in the county
except Glendale, Gardiner and West Roee
burg. In 1004 the loral-optlon amendment car
ried in Douslos County by a majority of
1717. In 1)6 the amendment to the local
option law was defeated in this county
and local option was voted on by pre
cincts with the result that two-thirds of
them went dry.
The Prohibition people are making a
very hard tight in Douglas County this
year. They have secured speakers from
abroad and at home and an; in every way
working to carry the county dry. Among
the speakers, are Rev. S. A. Douglas, of
Albany; Judge V. S. McFadden, of Cor
vallis; Hon. J. M. Glass, of California;
Mayor J. D. Matlock, of Eugsne, and
Hon. B. Z. Eddy, of Roseburg-.
The "wets" have not made a very de
termined campaign against the dry ele
ment, their side of the question being set
forth mostly from literature supplied by
tho wholesale liquor interests.

Prohibitionists Hope This Year to
Make Precinct "Dry."
OREGON CITY." Or.. May 16. (Spe
cial.) Two propositions started by the
local option forces are to be voted upon
In Clackamas County this year. One
of these is to vote prohibition in the
county as a whole, and the other is to
abolish the sale of liquor in the dis
trirt comprising the precincts of Mil

Clackamas. There are no saloons in
the last three precincts, but the sale
of liquor has not been restricted in
Milwaukle, where the prevailing senti
ment is apparently wet. but the Pro
hibition people hope to vote Milwaukie
dry by combining it with Clackamas,
Harmony and Oak Grove, the latter
precinct being the home of B. L.ee Pa

paign committee of this county. The
incorporated towns of Clackamas
County, aside from Milwaukie, are not
affected, except as the county votes as
The only previous attempt made in
thi county to dtlve saloons out of busi

the vote was taken in the county as a

followed by the abolishment of the sa

DALLAS. Or., May Ifi. (Special.) In

the heaviest votes against prohibition
being east in Dallas, Falls City and In

The most Important of the "dry
districts lie in the northern portion of
the county, in Douglas prerinet and in
the p reel nets Immediately adjoining.
Voters in Douglas precinct claim that
they are obliged to vote for prohibi
tion, so as to muzzle effectually the
gallon houses in that district, which
are responsible for much disorder and
frequent crime among the Indians of
the Grand Ronde Reservation, which
lies in th c neighborhood. An unsuc
cessful effort was made to arrange for
two separate ballots in that precinct,
one for the county as a whole, and one
for Douglas precinct alone. Since this
plan failed, it is believed that the vot
ers in chat precinct wilt vote for pro
hibition for the whole county, so that
they may insure it in their own neigh
borhood. In the Incorporated towns
the vote is doubtful, but the sentiment
seems to incline against prohibition.

The people of Columbia .County will vote
in Juno upon the question of county pro

been Hied. Union Precinct, comprising
the towns of St. Helens and Houlton, was
voted dry in June two years ago, and now
the advocates of saloons have filed their
petition for another vote. The amount
of liquor sold here has been greatly de
creased, though the law has been fre
quently violated by liquor being brought
into the precinct and given away. The
incorporated towns have been deprived
of considerable revenue. There is a
strong prohibition sentiment in the coun
ty, and were it not for the question of
revenue In the incorporated clowns mere
is no doubt prohibition would carry the

strong sentiment there in favor of pro
