"I! II MMMMJ Temperance Department. EDITED EV THE W. C. T. P. Declaration of Principles Adopted by the State W. C. T. U. at Portland, Juno 26. ist. In God is our trust; in His name and by His help we wage war against alchoholic beverages and all other forms of intemperance, including 'opium, morphine and tobacco. 2nd. We are opposed to the use of fermented wines at the Lord's table: ist, because it endangers the wel fare of persons who have to contend with the appetite contracted by the use of intoxicants: 2nd, because it may en gender this appetite in those who by the laws of heredity are constiturion ally incurable; 3d, because we believe there is no warrant in tfee world of God to introduce "the cup of devils into the temple of the Holy Ghost." 3d. We are undividedly opposed to the desecration of the Lord's day which is so alarmingly prevalent, is, we fear, increasing prevalent in our towns and cities; hence we as a union, do urge upon all good people to sus- tain all the means of grace afforded by the christian churches, and we do ear nestly entreat them to induce their Children to go with them to the house of God during public services in the forenoons as well as to Sunday school. We do as a union also utter our condemnation ot Sunday picnics, base ball games, opes beer gardens, saloons and other places of traffic, for mere purposes of pleasure or gain on the Lord's day. 3d. We do as a union most re spectfully and earnestly request rail road and steamboat corporations to extend to their employees the fuliest possible benefit of the Lord's day, and to suspend the running of trains, maiing excursions or other trips on Sunday, in the honor of God, and for the good of man. 4th, we pledge our selves to use our influence undividedly and collectively, against the prevalent custom of Sunday driving and visiting. 5th. Believing that childhood and youth have been made by divine ap pointment tlie especial charge of v.Hen as mothers and teachers vt accept the sacred trust committed to u.s and by means of homz influence, a. hool instruction, kindergarten train ing. Hand of Hope and all other suita ble and available agencies, we will ..vk to awaken, cultivate and strengthen t;u temperance education 01 our cnil-i assisted us by counsel and public words of encouragement, to the sing ers who furnished such beautiful songs, to the press of Portland for gratuitous notices and reports of our meetings. 2nd. Resolved that we ask the members of the Young Men's Chris tian Association, and other christian workers to co'operate with us in getting such restrictive laws as we now have enforced. 3rd. Whereas, we painfully realize that one of the greatest dangers to the young men of our state is the custom of social drinking and the frequently following evils of drunkenness, gam bling fec. Resolved, that we greatly desire a more cordial co-operation between the V. M. C. Association and the W. C. T. Unions in the great prevental and remedial work of temperance. 4th. Whereas, the ultimate object of all our counselling and laboring is prohibition. Resolved, that we are in accord with our National Union in the deter mination never to rest ti'll God gives us, in answer to prayer and work, both state and national prohibition of the legion traffic, and whereas, from reli able testimony we believe that consti tutional prohibition is working well in Maine, Iowa -and Kansas, and that in a number of states both northern and southern, the people are steadily ad vancing towards similar constitutional prohibition, and are already reaping some advantages from various places of local oction, and whereas there is a party devoted to the work of prohibi tion, and are already reaping some ad vantages from various places of local option, and, whereas, there is a party devoted to the work of prohibition which has adopted our expressive motto to "For God and Home and Native Land," and on whose flag is the dec laration, "We neither fear or favor the legion traffic," and that the prohibition monument is gaining recruits daily from all sections of our country, those who feel this to be the supreme issue of the hour, and that the question of prohibition is thus being forced upon I public attention as never before. Resolved that we thank God and ! take courage, and we hereby conse-- crate ourselves anew, and more unre servedly to the cause of God and suf I fering humanity, and be it further re solved that we do all in our power to A PLUCKY BANK CASHIER A few weeks ago a bank at Mitchell, Dak., suspended, and the affairs were placed in the hands of an assignee. The bank had a branch at White Lake, and the cashier of the latter was or dered to close it up and turn over the cash to the assignee. But the cashier refused. He said the White Lake branch did not owe the Mitchell bank a cent, but that, on the contrary, the bank at Mitchell owed his bank J 1 1,000. He said he could not see why the money of his depositors should be taken to pay the debts of the Mitch ell concern. The assignee of the Mitchell bank went over to White Lake, and posted a notice on the bank that it was closed. Hut fhe cashier, aided by depositors, tore down the notice. The cashier then took one window and his assist ant another, and they began to pay off the depositors. The assignee jumped over the counter and ordered a hault, but, instead of haulting, the crowd took the assignee and fired him out of the building into the street. The cashier then paid off the depositors in full, and put the key of the bank in his pocket. That is the kind of a bank cashier to have around. Perhaps the vigorous action of the depositors may have had something to do with his mode of set tling up. It is an example worth fol lowing. XONECOiX Three Year Old Record 2:41.

The a. m. on arrive at A :uncan system of public schools is t'a : inevitable corollary of the declara ti '.i of independence that the great wo.'k of the school, is to prepare for go id citizenship we feel that the pub lic schools must teach temperance as a safe guard to our homes and to citi zenship or be derelicit in their duty both to the children and to the state which supports them. We rejoice also in the work of our literature de partment and would here reaffirm our belief that by a Vise distribution of a sound temperance literature adapted to home needs, by a large circulation of our national organ, the ''Union Signal," we should help to educate and uplift public sentiment to the level of that abstinence. 6th. Believing"the pen to be mightier than the sword," mightier in the slaughter of purity and innocence, and knowing that this great power is used by the unscrupulous, and does develop the coarsest forces of human nature. We will also make use of this instru ment, and by means of the press seek to desseminate information and intel ligence regarding the evils of. intem perance and all crimes against society. 7th. Believing that next to the indwelling spirit of God, a body well equipped is the best defense against ardent spirits, we wish to place our selves on record as endorsing such habits of life, in regard to dress and food, as well as drink, as shall conduce to the best development of the povv ers God has given us. 8th. Our platform is Prohibition, and until our feet can be solidly placed upon that, it is our purpose to use every weapon at present at our com mand in the shape of the execution of existing laws, in the battle against our common enemy. I mould pjabhc sentiment in favor of the I prohibitory amendment that we con Ifidently expect the next legislature of our state will submit to the people for satisfaction. 5th. Resolved that it is the senti ment of this convention that the sale of intoxicants at drug stores or other public places either for medicinal or mechanical purposes should be most conscietiously carried on. 6th. Resolved that this convention petition our next legislature to pro hibit the manufacture or sale of adul terated articles of food and drink and to appoint commissioners to test sus pected articles and report to the proper authorities. Resolutions passed by the Stats W. C. T. U. at the Convention Seil In East Portland June 24, 25, 26. ist. Resolved that we most heartily thank the W. C. T. U. ladies and citi zens of East Portland for their cordial Welcome and generous treatment. The pastors and trustees of the Pres byterian church for the free use of their house of worship. To the min isters and other gentlemen who have Harry Wilson, 17 years and 4 months of age, the son of Mr. A. H. and Mrs. M. E. Wilson of Salem was drowned in the Willamette river on the opposite side of the river from the chair factory while in swimming with some other young men. He was a good swimer and after having per formed some difficult feats in the water, he rose to the top holding up his hands and exclaiming that he was dizzy. He lay on top of the water a short time going in various directions, being so dizzy that he knew not which direction to go; but unfortunately his maneuvers were misunderstood by his friends who thought he was playing. He then went down to rise no more alive. The boys did all in their power to raise him, but to no avail. When he went down the last time, he stirred the water until it was so roily that no trace of him could be found. Tempo rary search was abandoned and help was called from the city. It was not ten minutes until a thousand people lined the banks of the river. Grapple hooks were used for several minutes without any success. Finally Gaines Fisher, Jr., diving down, found the body and brought it to the surface, after it had been under water ifbout one hour. Henry Price discovered the location of the body with a garden rake attached to a pole. The body was again dressed and brought, to this side. A.
