ON "THh ROAD TO JERICHO'
The following, taken from yesterday
Portland Telegram, could not be con
firmed here last night and is given for
what is worth: "Instead of operating
only one boat, Elmore t Company will
soon have four craft plying between
Astoria and Oregon coast porta. The
Elmore is now on that route, and the
company has let a contract for building
a gasoline schooner of about 200 tons
capacity, which will be ready for service
by the early part of the winter. Two
mailer vessels will be placed in service
at once. Since it became an assured fact
that the Coos Bay country will soon
have a railroad connecting with the main
Ine of the Southern Pacific at Drain, the
business between Astoria and Tillamook.
Siuslaw and Umpqua has increased so
rapidly that the Elmore has been unable
to handle all of the traffic. The passen
ger trade has also been heavy. The El
more is light draft and the only deep
water boat which calls regularly at those
ports. William Baker, purser on the
eteamer Alliance, has accepted the posi
tion of dock agent for the company at
Astoria, and will enter upon his new
duties the first of next week. His suc
cessor on the Alliance will probably be
chosen this afternoon. He has been with
the California & Oregon Coast Steam
ship Company for the past six years."
Captain Sam. Bonafield, who was dis
qualified for his position as master of
the steamer J. B. Stetson, by the federal
authorities at Portland, as a result of
their inquiries into the Stetson-Jane L.
Stanford collision off the mouth of the
Columbia river on June 12th, last, has
been placed in command of that vessel
again, his papers having been restored
to him by the San Francisco inspector.
The Telegraph came down from the

The following is a Sunday morning
sermon written for Atorian readers by
Rev. C C. Rarick, pastor of the First
Methodist Episcopal Church on "Rescue
Work on the Jericho Road." The text is
aken from Luke 10:13, "A certain man
went down from Jerusalem to Jerico,
end fell among thieves, which stripped
him of his raiment, and wounded him
and departed, leaving him half dead.
We are all familiar with the story of
the stranger who left Jerusalem to go
went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
down to Jericho, a short journey of 21
miles; how that unexpectedly, on th"
road, he was smitten down and left un
able to help himself. Judaism (in the
persons ot its coici represent uvea j
parsed by and heeded him not. Happily
there came another that way, not only a
stranger, but a despised semi-heathen
Samaritan. He asked not who the man
was but what was his need. However,
the wounded Jew might have felt to
ward him, the Samaritan proved a true
My theme is the Jericho road as it is
today. We take especial pains to make
our public highways safe. The long
journeys we may take are attended by
no dangers from highwaymen such as
harrassed the traveler in the days of
Christ Yet it is true that men are be
ing robbed, and stripped and left to die
under the very shadow of our court
houses and churches. Somewhere along
the journey men are held up and man
hood, honor and self-respect are taken
Some day the young man must leave
the parental roof and walk alone. He
leaves behind him that Jerusalem his
home and starts with high hopes and
good equipment to make his way in life.
But watching by the wayside are rob
bers, whose greed no human sacrifice can
satisfy, who continually cry, "Give, give."
The saloon is on the Jericho road of
every young man. It robs him of money
and health, it robs him of manhood and
honor, it robs him of friends and happi
ness, it robs him of conscience, will and
reason, it robs him of home, heaven and
God. It has no mercy whatever. It
pushes out of its side doors into drunk
ards graves at least 60.000 of our citizens
every year. When the saloon has dona
the work it is established to do, tha man
who has received treatment at its hands,
is neither useful nor ornamental. With
money and health gone, he staggers to
the door of heaven only to find written
over its portals the words, "Nor shall
drunkards inherit the kingdom of God."
The gambling hell is on the Jericho
road. It runs wide open night and day.
Once in its fascinating grasp our hero
loses respect for himself and the rights
of others. The spirit of gambling is
abroad in the land. Men are eager to
get something for nothing. There are
only three ways by which a man can
have anything: by producing it, by re-

ceiving it as a gift, or by stealing it.
Getting money by gambling does not fall
readily under the first two heads, it
necessarily falls under the third. To
carry in your pocket money which has
become yours by no ue of your manly
powers, which has ceased to be another
man's by no willing acceptance on his
part, nor for which he has received an
equivalent, is degrading. This under
mining vice saps the strength of young
man's character; he forgets how to dis
tinguish between money earned am
money his by chance. Some night he
finds himself needing a little be is go
ing to meet his friends tonight. He will
remove ten dollar from the store till.
Ha intends to replace it for his salary
is due tomorrow and the chance are
that he will win tonight When the
lights begin to pale in the smoke-laden
parlor of the club room he finds himself
deeper than ever in debt his "debts of
honor" are many. He may tide the pres
ent crisis but the inevitable is the re
sulthis short accounts are discovered
and the future loses for him all its rosy
tint of hope. Many a young man whose
li'e is lull of riomise at its bciniii-.g
ends just so.
The "strange woman" is on the Jericho
road. "From the window of her house
she looks. In the evening, in the black
and dark night, her feet abide not in
her house, she is without, in the streets,
and lieth in wait at every corner. With
her much fair speech she caueth him to
yield. He goeth after her straightway,
as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as
a fool to the correction of the stocks;
till a dart strike through his liver j as a
bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth
not that it is for his life." Prov. 7:6-23,
Wine and women are the cause of the
downfall of more young men thm all
other causes put, together. In them our
boy loses his respect for woman, tears
from his heart the fair ideal he used to
worship and sinks lower than the beast.
These destroyers of youth and man
hood stand forth in all their ugliness
f.tros ti.e path of all who "ould wa.d
the way of life. Their victims strew the
roadside. The church seeks to help them
and now and then is able to lift and care
for a vounded one but thousands have
received a mortal hurt and are beyond
the reach of any power to save them.
It is well for the church to rescue as
many as she can and for this purpose to
establish "life-saving stations" along the
way and by means of these to save one
now and then. But why should we tol
erate such destroying agencies and per
mit the deadly work to go on t All our
boasting about our "twentieth century
civilization" as long as we permit this
awful destruction to go on, is as idle
words without weight. How shall we
come up for our reward in the great day,
when we have permitted our brother to
be stricken down and left worse than
dead? Let every agency for good join
hands against these wholesale robbers
and murderers and then, soon, we will
see the results of oun efforts appear in
happy homes, good citizens, smiling,
healthy and promising children, improv
ed and beautiful cities, a smaller tax and
fewer people going the way to ruin.
