COMPULSORY MEDICAL AID TO
i' To Thi Editor: In your editorial on
the qnefetton of compulsory medical aid
to children, in your last issue, I am glad
to note you are not opposed to Senator
Marsters' bill. The measure is sup
ported by the same coirect principles
' which underlie compulsory education of
-children which prevents cruelty to anl
mala, and criminal negligence generally
The bill in no way impugns the love
of parents for their children, though it
xnav discredit their intelligence -for re-
- fusing medical aid, which the enlighten
ed world recognizes as affective in 'most
cases for relieving suffering and pro
longing life. It in no way interferes
with their religious freedom. They may
believe as they choose, only their religi
ous liberty must not be the pretext for
denying others the right of medical' aid
in sickness. The sick, are entitled to
relief from "whatever source it may come.
Parents may resort to praver to reduce
a broken limb if they wish, but they
must resort to surgery, which the -en
lightened world has found to be effective
in most cases. They may give the cred
it for recovery to prayer or surgery as
they choose.. Surgery is above miracle
in these times, for surgery is within
reach tf most of us in most cases, while
miracle is not. This is false to the theo
ry of the faith-healer, but it is true ' t
fact and experience. Facts are what we
want. The doctrine of prayer, and heal
ing by faith, are questions of biblical in'
terpretation which can hardly -be dis
cussed in a brief communication. Your
quotation of Jacob's words, "I will not
let .tnee co, except tnou bless me. is
unfortunate in this connection. You
should remember Jacob came out of that
struggle with a withered leg.
tWith reference to the "ostracism that
a fw devout, faithful Christian men
and women were subjected to," in
Wooiburn, allow me to say, they were
in so sense "ostracised" however some
o! them were quarantined. They cere
in no way persecuted, but were provided
with provisions at public expense,
n hue they tnauzQt themselves mvr-
tyrs, an intelligent public regarded them
George H. Bexxett.
We publish the above for all that . it
is worth: but so far as the statement
made that "the doctrine of praver, and
healing by faith, are questions of biblic
al interpretation." this the Plaik.
dealer denies. There is no interpreta
tion possible for the records of miracles
are either true or false. The statements
of prayer being made bv man and ans
wered by God are either true or false.
There is no interpretation to be put up
on such "recorded events for interpreta
tion in such affairs is nothing mere nor
less than apology in the interpreter for
his own lack of faith or direct infidelity,
and Brother, there are thousands o! men
in the Christian ministry today w ho
know nothing absolutely nothing" of
the first principle of Christianity, men
who mak6 preaching to be a profession
trying'to conform their outward life to
fit the garment, the color, texture and
beauty of which they are absolutely un
able to see because they continually
ook at self and self ideals and self inter
pretation and deny the "Thus saith the
Lord." . And now, Brother, is it not a
fact that you, like Paul in his. days of
unbelief and before the scales fell from
his eyes assisted in the persecution of
members of the Church of God or they
who professed to. be your brethern in
Christ? Months ago .when a stranger
in Oregon',1 dropped off at a village aud
the first thing I beard was a discussion
along the above lines fchd I think you
were the person mentioned -as one of
the persecutors of a number of men and
women whose Christian lives were pure.
I know not whether' you are or not, but
you know and God knows and I would
infer by your communication that -yon
had some knowledge of the facts in the
case. It is a lamentable fact that the
wrst persecutors on earth of the high
er principles of faith in individuals
spring from people, who take the name
of Christian and never take a further
step and I state this after twenty-five
years of active newspaper work and ex
perience with professional men of all
kinds. In that time I have received
scores of communications from profess
ed Christians but whenever I struck one
whose life conformed to the hidden life
of faith in God they never were found
persecuting the brethern nor defending
interpret Allow of faith because they
lived in it, breathed in it and many
have died in it.
But I cannot pass by that withered
leg statement wnnoat making this re-
maik: Jacob may have "been the first
man who got a withered leg but with
the injury came the- blessing ; and it
would be a blessing to many men if
their leg was withered also.
MERE IS THE TRUTH. .
The Observer is generally correct in
its diagnosis of men and things. From
hignest to lowest tiie newspapers have
none of them printed the truth about
the resignation of Binger Hermann. We
have the Straight Goods. To be plain
about it, Mr. Hermann stood in the way
of railroad land grabbers (and Congress,
, to some extent). - His opposition to
wholesale forest reservations antago
nized the subsidized railway magnates
who are using the forest reservations as
convenient means for relieving them
selves of worthless remnants of their
land grabs which were unsalable.
They were left open, however, in
FOR MINING AND RAILROADING
$6,000,089 Corporation Organized in Portland to 0pe
rate in Douglas Connty.
Portland, Feb. 3. Incorporation ar
tid8 of the United States Mining, Se
curities & Tnis. Company were filed in
the office of the County Clerk yesterday
by A. Rowley, R. J. Ilendrie and J. E.
Wright. The objects announced are:
To mine for precious metals, coal, stone,
marble, etc. ; also to build and operate a
railroad at a point near certain copper
quartz locations near the corners of
townships I and 2 west Willamette meri
dian, 31 and 32 south ; thence by a
northerly course to the valley or river to
the towns of Riddle and Myrtle Creek,
all in Douglas County. The amount of
capital stock is 16,000,000.
This is a developement enterprise in
heavy deals, and under the lieu lands
act secured valuable lands instead. It
will be remembered that Mr. Moody
checked a deal of this kind for 1,500,000
acres. These operations were a source
of imn ense profit to the land grabbers.
The Northern Pacific Railway Company
is said to have swiped 17,500,000 by this
system in one exchange. When it was
proposed to repeal the timber and stone
law, Mr. Hermann said no, "repeal the
lieu-land law and amend the timber and
stone law." Mr. Hermann was right,
and the people see what a great mistake
will ensue from following lines dictated
by his superior "in office." Mr. Her
mann has been verv consistent in his
reports on lieu-laud script for years, aud
if his representations had been honestly
considered and acted upon, Hitchcock's
muddle in land matters could have lieen
avoided. President McKmley investi
gated this matter and pronounced Mr,
Hermann a pure man and nothing has
since occurred to alter that opinion.
Grant's Pass Observer.
The bill of Senator Steiwer, of Gilliam
Grant, Sherman, Wasco, Wheeler and
Morrow Counties, to provide for redis
tncting the state into Senatorial and
Representative districts, which passed
the Senate Monday, provides for no
changes affecting counties other than
some of those of Eastern and Central Ore
gon, and the changes provided are mere
ly in the matter of apportionment.
Under the measure, the total number of
Senators and Representatives from all
the counties affected would be the same
as at present. Under the present law,
Wasco and Sherman Counties compose
one benatoml district, and have one
Senator; Gilliam, Grant, Sherman,
Wasco and Wheeler compose one, and
have one Senator, and Crook, Klamath,
Lake and Wasco, still another, with one
Senator. Under the Steiwer bill, Was
co County would constitute one district,
with one Senator; Klamath, Lake,
irooK ana urant anotner, witii one
- i i . ...
Senator, and Gilliam, Sherman and
Wheeler another, with one Senator.
Under the present law, one Representa
Uve district is composed of Gilliam,
Grant, Sherman, Wasco and Wheeler,
with three Representatives ; and another
of Crook, Klamath, Lake and Wasco,
with three Representatives. The Stei
wer bill proposes that Wasco alone con-
stitu'es one Representative district, with
two Representatives; that Sherman,
Gilliam and Wheeler compose another,
with two Representatives, and that
Crook, Klamath, Lake and Grant com
pose still another, with two Representa
Referring to the Reverend Bennett's
communication in Monday's issue which
crept in without our knowledge, all we
desire to sav is this : Down in Texas a
nigger went down into the water and
came np out of the water of the Brazos
river and looking upon the vast arrav of
admiring friends on the bank said:
Brethren and Sistern, If thei'se one of
you who don't think that I'm a Chris

preaching to the sinners before the
Senator Mulkey's bill relating to the
public ition of obscene or indecent liter
ature passed the Senate Friday. Its
purpose is to prohibit the publication of
accounts of the deeds of criminals or an
exhibition of a play representing the
deeds of criminals. . The bill is aimed
particularly at books or plays setting
forth the deeds of persons who have
been convicted of crimes in this state.
b be more explicit, it is aimed at the
sensational Tracy books, which have
been put upon the market in Oregon,
and whi;h are not tending to elevate
the ideals of Oregon boys.
It was reported, according to the Seat
tle Times, that after the Mayor of Walla
Walla had visited Olympia during the
late Senatorial contest, he said on are
riving home that any man who could
have a chance to beat Mr Ankenv
would have to "put up" not less than
250,000. Now did the Walla Walla
Mayor slander the Washington Legisla
ture or anybody?
The following going the rounds was

wet and twice as dirty."
The thousands of pamphlets about
Oregon that are beingdistributed by the
Harnman rail-oads will certainly be
beneficial to the state, and we shall see
good results before the year is out.

Most important of all the bills passed
by the House at the session vesterdav
afternoon was the measure commonlv
known as the inheritance tax law, in

There was no opposition to it that was
manifested, and if the bill is passed bv

it will mean that the state will be the

Considerable discussion was evoked in
the House yesterday afternoon, over the
bill fathered by Galloway, of Yamhill, to
prohibit the importation and sale of
adulterated illuminating oils. The bill
provides a penalty for the sale of such
oils and also provides a test for their
use, and Banks wanted to insert the
words, "a willful knowledge ," in order
to show the intent of the seller of the
oils. It was evident, however, from the
trend of the argument, that the Repre
sentatives believed the retail merchants
should be held resposible and find out
for themselves whether the oil was aduL
terated, before offering it for sale. It
was in its original form that the bill
passed, despite the protest offered by

BROKE INTO JAIL.
Horsethlef Returns to Bastlle throcgh
Same Hole He Crawled Out of.
Jonx Day City, Or., Feb. 3. k true
tale that reads like some of the unique
Arizona stories in the Eastern papers has
just conio to light in Canyon City, a
Grant County borsctbici cutting his
way through the stono wall of the jail,
and after three days of roughing ,it
among the rugged mountains returning
at uight to crawl through the same hole
through which ho made his escape.
The depuly sheriff found him next fore
noon clamoring for dinner.
The prisoner was l-'inniett Kimberlinp,
who with Tom Hill, another alleged
horse rustler of the interior, was incar
cerated in the county jail at Canyon,
where Kimberling was awaiting sen
tence after conviction, and Hill was
awaiting trial. With a bar of iron pro
cured in some way they broke off the
lock of their cell and got into the out
side corridor. Thence tliev worked
their way through the wall with the as-
sixtiineo ot the iron and made off for the
Eagle Creek country.
Three days of strenuous life among
the hills of the interior, where at this
season traveling, even under more
auspicious conditions, is no snap, made
Kimberling long for the old-time fare in
Canyon's jail again, and he decided to
turn back, lie says Hill came back
with him, though that worthy has not
yet shown up. Kimberling got to the
jail at night. The hole was still there,
and he crawled through it and went to
bed. In the morning the deputy heard
a tapping, tapping in the corridor. He
went in an t there was KimU-rling
wanting a meal.
Kimberling says he and his partner
got nearly to Day vi lie In-fore they de
cided to turn back. He cays Hill
planned the getaway. Kitulerling es
cajied once lx'fore from the Grant jail
and was recaptured in Portland.

Mr. Perkins Explains.
In last Thursday's Review Mr. W. A.
Perkins, of Drain, explains that during
the past eighteen months he lias con
tribute! fl2 or flS to this piper in the
form of a check on the first National
Bank and thus lie brands as false our
statement that his subscription and
printing patronage has always lieen
placed elsewhere. Now, for a little
further "explanation." Some eighteen
months ago the Plainoealf.r solicitor
visited Mr. Perkins' logging camp and
secured some ten or twelve row sub
scriptions from his timbermcn, each of
whom gave our solicitor an order on
Mr. Perkins for $1.60 the amount of a
years subscription at that time. When
these orders were presented to Mr. Per
kins he immediately issued a check to
the Pi. a i. deal ku covering the entire
amount ami charged the same np to his
men pro rata. Later, w hen the late
editor placed an order with Mr. Perkins
for a bill of lumber to use in the con
struction of his residence in this city
amounting to over f 100, a small ad
was placed in the paer but abruptly
discontinued in a few weeks on the
grounds that more orders were being re
ceived than could bo filled at the mill,
( showing the excellent work of an ad in
the Plaixdkalkk.) We simply mention
these facts to show up Mr. Perkins
boasted liberality toward this paper and
the childish nature of the controversy
he desires to burden our columns with.

waste basket, he now seeks and receives

As usual Thursday at 0 o'clock the
employes' of t lie local ncwspaiwr odice
started for their homes, leaving the
estovers to finish running off the pa
per and look after the mailing. Shortly
after 7 o'clock Boyd leisurely i trilled in
to the office, took an easy chair und lit
his corncob pie. Seeing Mr. West
over's little son busy at work wrapping
papers, he concluded to help him out
for pastime. Incidentally Foreman
Howell dropped in, and seeing Boyd at
work, told him to stop, but as Boyd said
he was not workinir, he went on wrap

mcantimu went out and got President

ed the statement that he was not work

grew warmer and warmer.
"I am from Texas," said Iu.vj, "aud
I don't want you to trille with me."
But the others did, and finally IV.yd
started in to work in a different way,
and the other printers U-gan to make
themselves scarce. So quickly did they
leave that they forgot to lake their hats
and belongings. In the meantime Dick
Hull, ua old-time printer, had taken a
hand in the fracas, and w hile Boyd was
standing off Howell and Dreyfus, he
grabbed Boyd by the throat. Boyd paid
little attention to him until Dreyfus and
llo'Aell had made good their disappear
ance, when he made one swing with his
right. That was enough, for it caught
the old-time printer above the eyes and
he was la.t seen dancing a two-step
down Seventh street.
When Dreyfus left the ollice he went
to Justice of the Peace Stipp, and swore
out a warrant tor Boyd's arrest. The f
fine was paid by Mr. Westover. This
morning the president had a conference

The Poetry of the Orange
"It appeals to yu when the fruit hang.- rijn; and
sweet on the tree in February or early in March
Then the blosm break out, and the trees are yellow
with gulden 'ol, and white with orange flowers.
It may he that a Hurry of snow has whitcncl the
mountain tops, and then you have an artistic back
ground for a tropical fortst. Tl. air full of fnn
ehirie, and heavy with fragrance as; nigfit conie on,
and then, if the moon Le shining, you may hear at
midnight through open windows, the wmg of the
inocking-hird in the scented grove, and it never
wenied v) melodious l f.re. An exjtrierice like this
is possible an- winter, and it if worth a journey a
thousand miles while you have it, by taking the sfcenic
Sha.-ta Houte through the grand and picturesque .Sis
