The plan of the campaign was to
aecure general cooperation of all the
moral and religious forces or the county
to urge upon the district attorney and
aherirr that they 'do their duty against
this unlawful nuisance. To this end a
drumnoad consultation was held a few
days inter at Oladstone Park between
Mr. Tufts and four of the pastors of
Oregon City, all of whom agreed to
uring trie matter oerore their congrega
tion on a specified Sunday and take ac

to their aid and after a brief but vigor?
ous campaign the club was closed.
"The Journal as well as those fear,

day, "deserves a high meed of praise
from every law-abldlnsr citizen. Not

Washington, Aug. 7. There is

grand Jury, which meets In Chicago Au

Harrlman'a management of the Chicago

charged that the railroad 'granted
thousands of rebates to the Standard
Oil trust.- The belief la growing that
criminal prosecution of E. H. Harrl
man. John D. Rockefeller . and others
will be one result of the recent dis
closures at Chicago. Secretary Bona
parte today said:
"In some cases It Is the opinion of
most prosecuting ornoers tnat tne law

'they appeared as witnesses in the Chi
