DECEMBER 2S, 1SW3. for A HIGHER STATE OF MOR- ALITY. The series of articles on public and private morality which the Plain- dealer has been publishing is bear- iug fruit and meeting with the hearty snnnnrf. .ind rnmmpnd.iHon of demo- crats as well as republicans, and so great was the demand for papers last Thursday and Saturday that we could not supply the numbers asked for. We are glad to know that there are and those who voted for the bill be scores of good men in Roseburg and lieved that $300 was exempt from Douglas county who say that they desire a change: and we hear that a non-political, civic federation has been organized for the enforcement of law and the inculcation of a high- er state of public and private morali- tv. Such an organization should o I meet with the hearty support moral and financial of every citizen of Douglas county and especially of Roseburg. The enforcement of law is the safety of the nation. If there are bad laws thev should also be en- forced until they can be amended or rpnpjilwl. As rprrards saloons ran- ning wide open on Sunday and, like some in Roseburg, being nothing more nor less than gambling hells, and, some, the verv lowest kind of bawdy houses, where, abandoned, de- graded, filthy, in their vile immorality and proud in their shameless aban- donment these places are cess-pools of iniquity and the breeders of crime, And our courts do they know? Are they cognizant of what is going on? Do they winK at sucn anarcnicai pro- ceedings? Do they attempt to en- force the laws on the statute hooks? Have they tried, time and time again, to enforce the laws against the crimes we have mentioned, and have the juries composed of the best citizens of Douglas county turned the offend- ers loose on a verdict of "not guilty?" If the juries have done so and the court officials and judges have be- come "heartsick" in their effort to en- force law there is a possible excuse or, rather, a palliation, for failure for not attempting to enforce the law. sent from the House to the Senate If theiaws are being violated daily in where it was lost.

Now we have no the gross miscarriage of law and jus- tice in Roseburg. We know that it made away with the bill because of exists. We have seen the laws vie- nis friends hip with gamblers and the lated, or at least supposed that viola- element, but as President of the tions were going on. There must be Senate he made no effort to find it by several broken cogs or the eccentric employing the methods known to any out of fix, but we have not yet had presiding officer of a legislative as time to examine into and find out sembly. His course, to say the least, what part of the court machinery is shows that his sympathes and support beyond repair. We want expert tes- timony, so as to know exactly where to Dlace the blame. If there is one place in these United States demand- ing the highest order of patriotism, for Oregon and failing in that ambi intelligence, sterling honor and integ- tion, has announced that he is a can rity, it is the tribunals of our land; didate for Congressional honors for and as the officers of these courts this district. Now we want this man's come from all political, social and re- record to come squarely before the ligious parties, it is to our individual benefit that no man except a pure man, and well qualified, be elected to office. Are there any republi- can officials standing in with crime? Down them at the coming election, Are there any democrats pandering to criminals? Down them. If there is any part of the machine that is still true to principle, retain it. But there are men in office who are not directly responsible for the enforce- ment of law who favor turning Rose- burg into a Sodom and Gomorrah, be- cause of the money that can be made out of the fruit of immorality and shuffled statesman of the sawbuck vice. brand. Now we are not opposing him The civic league should be backed because we are supporting or sup up by every father and mother in posed to be supporting Binger Her Roseburg who wants to raise chil- mann for re-election. We write what dren in a "for God and morality com- we publish from conscientious motives munity." It is time that the black and we care not who is the successful flag of vice be pulled down. It is candidate for the Congressional nomr time that the horrible stories of hu- nation provided he is a man of good man and animal depravity be forever political standing and is a man of forgotten. It is time that Roseburg, sterling honor and integrity. With Phoenix-like, arose from ashes of the the record that this man Brownell past and became renowned for virtue, has, to make him the nominee of the morality and law-abiding. We could wish the city no greater joy or hap piness than, that by one mighty effort, the year 1904 be ushered in by a de termination to redeem the past years of vice and lawlessness. MOST HASTY LEGISLATION While the joint legislation is to be commended for the close application to business, yet it becomes apparent that the haste in which the work was done did not give the representatives Qr senat0rs time in which to liroporlv go over the hills and guard against pjrorS It W3S the intention Of DOtll brancll- gg 0f jie legislature to have passed a bill exempting $300 worth of taxable property consisting of household fur- niture and personal effects from taxation to the head of every family. The bill passed and became a law but so far as next year's taxes is con cerned, it is inoperative, because the emergency clause was not attached and Attorney General Crawford states that in the next tax assessment that no exemption can be allowed. That the passage of the bill without the emergency clause was either by mis- take or design there can be no doubt, but as the framers of the bill desired taxation, the intent should be taken into consideration. The tax law pro- vides that the tax assessment shal date March 1, 190-1. The Exemption law will not go into force until March 23, 1904 It is hinted that this was another . specious scheme to get into the citi- zens' pockets. Suppose there are $50,000 taxpayers in tha State and the exemption of $300 to each tax payer this would give a tax exemption on approximately $15,000,000 worth of property. At 3 per cent the tax would be in total $450,000. We do not believe that there was any design to pass the bill in its present form and under the circumstance if a test case could be made before the State Supreme court, that body might rule that the intent to exempt $300 worth of property should be taken into con sideration as that is the spirit of the bill whatever the letter may be. BROWNELL FOR C0.N0RES5 Lost Anti-aambiinz Bill His pIea f0r office? In the three days session of the legislation last week, the House passed a very commendable bill when it was attempted to put this state on as high and progressive plane as Washington by adopting the anti- gambling bill of that state and mat ing it a law of Oregon. The House is to be commended for the good vrork which it did and the record it made. After passing the bill it was! desire to say that Brownell stole or was against the best interest of the State. It is this same Brownell who aspired to be United States Attorney public and although we have only been hearing of this man for the past fifteen months, yet we have watched his course and his very erratic per- formance before the public as a poli- tician. He may be a brilliant man. He may be a shrewd politican. He may even be an honest man, but his public record is against him, and re- publicans of Douglas county, this is the man who is sought to be brought before you for your support to send to Congress. This man is a political huxter, trixter and trader in poltroon- ery. He is undoubtedly a double- party would court defeat. A man ho was a Judas Iscariot and a Benedict Arnold even to an open enemy into whose commence no nau ormed himself under the sacred plea of friendship, such a man is a proper candidate for the shades of oblivion. Now the Pi.aindeai.ku is not going to make a fight on the candidate for the Congressional honors after the nomination, it is coing to have the matter thoroughly discussed before We do not know that Binger Her will bo a candidate to succeed him self in Congress nor do wo care; but one thing we do care about and that is, whoever is the candidate, wo want him to be a man of whom wo can sav: Fellow citizens we uenevo mm to be a man worthy of your suffrage; a man who will add honor to the of fice instead of getting all his honors out of the office. Truly if there is one Republican Congressional candi date of whom it can bo said: 'Thou are weighed in the balances and found wanting" it is George C. Brownell. A fierce blizzard and snowstorm has been raging in all the states east of the Rocky mountains for the past four davs. The thermometer fell in North Dakota to 30 degrees below zero. Un saturaav it was so uanc in New York City at noon that the city had to be lighted and then the bright est electric light only made darkness visible. A railroad collision at Grand Rap ids, Mich., on Saturday caused the death of IS persons and 31 were badly injured. The blizzard blew out the signal and two engines met with a frightful crash an" loss of life. On Saturday, Mrs. Roosevelt enter tained 500 children at the White House, while the President slipped in and grinned at the amusement going on. An Alabama mob, on Friday night. attempted to cover up a lynching and set fire to the jail. The fire was com municated to other property and $35,000 damages was the result. r Reliance It's a great word, isn't all it means a good deal.

This means that there will be an exo dus of gamblers, lewd women and bums and toughs of all kinds, and we hope that the sentences on those tried and found guilty will make per manent the fortunate exoders. It is about time for the army to "get up and get." A Democratic Candidate for President. A New York special of Saturday, says: "Judge Alton B. Parker's boom for the democratic nomination for President will be launched next Mon day evening at a dinner to take place in Sherry's, at which ex-President Grover Cleveland and ex-Senator Dav id Hill will speak. The dinner was arranged by Charles Murphy, and, while it is ostensibly given in honor of Mayor McClellan, it will really show for the first time Murphy's hand in National politics. Murphy has been in communication with party leaders and has laid his plans to carry the state for the demo cratic electors. The fact that he has nvited and has received acceptances from the Cleveland wing of the party is an indication that tho Bryan ele ment has been thrown overboard. The features of the platform of the democratic party may be out lined at this dinner. Murphy has not only invited Cleve land and Hill to speak, but has been assured that W. Bourke Cockran August Belmont, John G. Carlisle, John D. Crimmin3 A. P. Fitch, Hugh J. Grant and other men of influence in the financial world will sit at tho main table. Mr. Cleveland has sent a letter of acceptance. Mr. Cleveland in his speech is ex pected to outline what he considers will be the paramount plank in the Democratic platform." The Plaindealeu desires it to bo understood that it is making no fight on the saloon as a licensed establish ment. It is making a fight to cause to saloon to conform to the law of ho land the same as any other leg itimate business. Chief Newell, of the Irrigation de partment of internal affairs will make visit to Oregon to talk over intend ed plans for bringing largo bodies of and under cultivation. The Department of Justice will not illow settlers on "overlap" lands in Clark county. Wash., to settle the matter with the railroad company. The government will mako its own terms with the parties interested. Japan has decided to land 15,000 soldiers in Corea. A New Kind or Quarantine.

The Christmas tree was tastefully ar ranged and laden with costly and beau tiful presents. "Uncle" John llrou, besides a number of of other present-", received vouchers for ids pension and back pension. Of course the old gen tie- man was well pleased.
