Pitfalls of the
The W. C. T. U. is putting forth a
special work through tho purity depart
ment this year at tho World's Fair City.
Only a email number of Christian men
and women realize tho tremendous need
of this work in behalf of tho defenseless
young women of our nation.
A correspondent writes that saloon
keepers are banded together and mak
ing an united effort to bring SOOO to 5000
more girla to tho c'ty this year. "Three
hundred more saloons havo recently
opened there. WitlfTio financial limit,
they are calmly determined to carry out
their relentless purpose. This vicious
organization, whose root? havo pierced
the entire mold of tho famous city.
should arouse every Christian to make
a ceaseless and earnest effort to save as
many girls as possible from their clutch
"Hundreds of girls are on their way
to St. Louis in search of honest employ
ment. Their human enemies are awaro
of this, and havo sent out agents in
everv lanp city to lurk .about pecret
placse, to entrap the innocent and to
haunt street car transfers in the city
suburbs. They are hundreds of shad
owy waiting places in our large cities,
where many a victim's screams have
been stilled by the moral brigand's hand
as they dragged her from safety, inno
cence and purity, through no fault of
her own; while on either side loom.'d
saloons, behind whose darkened win
dows men reeled and blasphemed.
"Tho World's Fair City is hollow with
pitfalls on every hand. The great rail
roads do not warn their passengers that
danger lurks there on every highway
a id byway. The newspapers do not
pry out against it, for reform is not op-
ular. How will the great army of work
ing girls know that they ought not go to
St. Louis unaccompauied by a true and
rusted attendant", unless good friends
are there to meet them? Any girl had
better starve, than enter thjs modern
Sxlom without friends.
'Girls in search of houe.-t employ-)
ment, who contemplate going there.
hould bo informed that keepers of in
famous houses have a capital of $300,000
to secure new victims for their nefarious
business. There are miles and miles
of evil dens that cover their dark deeds
with a sign, 'Restaurant,' or 'Girls
wanted to work.' Many an innocent
airl has entered these apparently re
sectable places, only to be druggrd
and dragged to a living death. A school
teacher was rescued roeently, through
the efforts of an undo, who found her
in enforced slavery. We are reliably
informed that Russian and Japanese
girls are being imported by thousands.
'.May God move every Christian
heart to reach out a helping hand to
these helpless ones."

Portland, Oregon, April IS, 1004.
Editor IIosebckg Plaindkaleb,
My Dear Sir: To the end that
the first gun fired off this Presidential
year may be distinctly heard in all the
tatca of our Union as Oregon's endorse
ment of President Roosevelt and his
policies, as well as that the principles of
the Republican party as enunciated in
the platform adopted last Thursday by
our Mate convention may be nnprece
dentedlv sustained bv the voters of Ore-
con next June, it is earnestly urged by
the State committee that the press of
the State call and keep calling upon the
voters to not neglect to vote. The State
beine safely Republican, many of the
voters will forego their franchise unless
prompted to an exercise thereof by the
prcsii; and being a firm believer in the
efficacy of printer's ink, I am greatly in
topes that you will find it congenial to
assist the State committee in its man
agement of the coming campaign.
Your obedient servant,
Fiiank G. Bakkr,
Chairman Repub. State Com.
Eugene Fire Bugs.
Two men, giving their names aa Wil
liam and Harry Wilgate, wero arrested
Monday morning, at Eugene, during
the fire in which a laundry and a black
smith shop were burned, charged with
burglary, having been caught stealing
several pairs of trousers from F. L.
Poindexter'a dye works near the scene
of the fire. They were taken to jail and
on the way one of tho men intimated
to the officer in charge that he knew
how the fire originated and would tell if
given his liberty. Of course the officer
refused to let him go, and locked him
up. The examination of tho men was
set for Wednesday.
The Wilgates seem to bo hoboes, and
said they arrived in Eugene on tho
night of the fire. As the fire was un
doubtedly of incendiary origin, many
believe that these men are the cuilty

Skirmishes are Frequent
Seoul, April 20, 11:35 P U1- ue Japanese au
thorities here admit that constant skirmishing occurs
between the opposing armies on the Yalu river, but
they claim that no decisive action has taken place up
to date, though news of such an engagement is ex

It is estimated that the Russians uow have 50,000

The wildest rumors are afloat, largely from Core

Tokio, April 20, 9 30 P. M. Russian troops to

Cossacks has appeared for a second time at Sung Jin
(about 150 miles north of Gen San), where they
burned t he Japanese settlement and took possession
of the post and tho telegraph offices. As there are no
Japanese troops present, the Corean officials of Sung

Another detachment of 75 Russian soldiers has
advanced as far south as Puck Chyong, about 70 miles
down the coast from Sung Jin.
