Liquor and Unemployment
McMinnvllle, Or., Jan. 15. To the
Editor of The Journal Since this is
the season of the year when the ques
tion of the unemployed In the cities
comes up for discussion, I would like
to state my opinions. If you will be
kind enough to give them space in
your excellent paper. There seem to
be about as many proposed remedies
for this unfortunate condition as there
are writers. Th principal cause of
this great army of moneyless men
congregating in the cities during the
winter is the liquor traffic, and what
naturally goes with the liquor trafflo.
The remedy is to abolish the liquor
It Is a fact that the greater num
ber of the idle men that gather In the
cities during the winter are men who
have earned enough during the sum
mer to maintain thefn during the
months when work is scarce and
Now the remedy for these condi
tions is fcr the states of Oregon and
Washington to abolish the liquor traf
fic. Do this by constitutional amend
ments, and put men in to enforce the
laws who are made of the same kind
of material that Governor West is
made of. If th cities would abolish
the saloons and all their appendages
and put in their places reading rooms,
coffee houses and cheap rooming
houses, the problem of caring for the
unemployed would be largely solved.
The men who have been in the habit
ct blowing in their money would have
plenty to live on during the winter,
and they would be in much better con
dition when spring came.
There is no excuse for the presence
of a saloon in any city. The only
pretended excuse is the old worn out
plea of revenue. But the relief from
the care and support of the horde -of
idle, hungry men would more than re
pay the cities for the loss from saloon
licenses. Then If the saloons were
wiped out and the cities were cleaned
up, the hoboes and bums would go
with the rest of the saloon element,
and leave the dry cities much cleaner
than before. In his report the chief
of police of Oregon City says that
during 1913 the city furnished lodging
for 1930 hoboes. The city records of
McMinnvllle or Newberg or Corvallis or
Eugene do not show such a condition.
The people of the cities are beginning
to get their eyes open. The saloon
will soon be considered a relic of
barbarism. D. A. MILLER.
An Unregenerate Down-and-Out.
Portland. Jan. 15. To the Editor of
HThe Journal If you will kindly grant
me space I will reply to "A Retired
Down and Out," whose letter appeared
in The Journal last Monday. To him
I wish to say:
I hall thee, Retired Down and Outer!
I rejoice! You struck the right key
note when you said. I think people
wrong in feeding men that don't work
to pay for it" but that is exactly what
you are doing now. You are doing the
work, and feeding mamma, Baby Boy
and yourself, on $2.60 per, minus what
you save, and feeding the other fellow
on the value of your labor aboVe $3.50
a day; which, by the way, he doesn't
need to save, for. when pape dies Baby
Boy can take up the burden.
You say the unemployed don't want
hard work. No, I'll, agree with you
there. I don't believe they do; espe
cially when they get only their board
for it And I may safely add that
there are a lot of employed men who
1 don't like hard work, either.
! I have been employed since January
; 10. 1910, and have lost only half a
day, but I'll frankly acknowledge that
i I am not working for the love of work.

Chief Criminal Deputy Under
. Ex-Sheriff Stevens
Archie F. Leonard.
Archie F. Leonard, chief criminal
deputy under ex-Sheriff Stevens, has
announced his candidacy 'for the Re-'
publican nomination for sheriff of
Multnomah county. For the past year
Mr. Leonard has been employed as
Bpeclal agent by the O.-W. R. & N.
company, but In order to devote his en
tire attention to the campaign he has
resigned his place and from now unll
the primaries will be actively In the
Mr. Leonard has been a resident of
Oregon for nearly 25 years. He was
born In South Dakota in 1879. His
education was secured in th schools
of this state and at a Portland busi
ness college. He entered the polic de
partment of Portland In 1900 as pri
vate secretary to Chief of Police D. M.
McLaughlin. He continued in that ca
pacity until Sheriff Stevens was elect
ed seven years ago, when he was made
a chief deputy in the sheriffs office.
"My platform Is not a very exten
sive one." said Mr. Leonard In an
nouncing his candidacy yesterday. "If
elected sheriff, I shall endeavor to so
conduct the of floe that the county will
receive a maximum of efficiency- at the
smallest possible cost I pledge my
self to enforce all laws wtth-J-ict im
partiality. With an expert euof near
ly 14 years in th police department
and the sheriffs office, I feel that i
am not presumptuous In 'submitting
my name to the people as a candidate
for th office of sheriff."
Mr. Leonard has a wide circle of
friends and acquaintances and will
doubtless make a good showing in the
and bums you and I would not have
to work 10 hours in a ditch for $3.50
a day. And then perhaps you might
realize that there is something else in
the world for the common laboring
man and. Incidentally, for Baby Boy,
besides hard work in a muddy ditch in
the winter time. Have you got all you
want, or - all you need to make you
happy? You don't get it on $2.60 per.
No, I don't like to do hard work, for
my board. And I confess a fellow f eel
tno r thniu fellows of whom you
spoke, who were willing to work, all
right, but when they found they were
expected to do it for next to nothing.
And, finally, brother, remember that
the tramp is such from chance, usu
ally, rather than from choice. Give
him an- opportunity and he, too, will
probably make good. No doubt he has
the same desires, the same aspirations
away down in his heart that you and I
have. But if you have been really
down and out once,, you can doubtless
remember how hard the climbing was.
Perhaps he can't lift himself as well
as you did yourself. If so, let's give
him a helping hand and not a knock.
Perhaps he, too, would know the hap
piness of a Baby Boy. Who knows?

From One Who Knows Copperfield.
San Jose, Cat, Jan. 15. To the Edi
tor of The Journal Having read an
article In The Journal from one Gus C
Moser, a candidate for governor of
Oregon, I ask for a little space ,in
your valuable paper and wish to ask:
Is this the kind of man the Republican
party is going to put up for governor?
The tone of his letter leads one to
believe he is In sympathy with gam
blers and sporting houses and he seems
to feel hurt because Governor West
put them out of business at Copper
field and made them obey the law.
Also, I note that he wishes to make
light of the many things the governor
has done of late, which all goes to
show what an unfit man he would be
for governor. I only hop that when
the good people of Oregon go to vote
they will see to it that the name -it
G. C. Moser is not on their ticket
When Governor West closed the Cop
perfield saloons he did a good thing,
an act which no decent person would
condemn him for. ,
If Mr. Moser did not know condi
tions at Copperfield he did not read
the papers, for all that was printed
In The Journal was true, and, more. I
had the misfortune to live in Hunting
ton, near Copperfield, about four years,
and I know something about law-enforcement

as bad as at Copperfield. and through
the efforts of the Rev. R. C. Lee Gov
ernor West came personally . to Hunt
ington and cleaned up the place, caus
ing the mayor and justice of the peace
to resign without asking any ques
tions, and all this within 40 miles of
Baker City and after many cases had
been taken to the Baker courts and
many appeals had been made to the
district attorney. Sheriff Rand would
come to Huntington, walk the streets,
and wink at the whole proposition. Ha
did not want to do anything, and con
ditions would be the same today had
not Governor West come to the res
cue. The good people of Huntingtoi
are thanking him today for what he
did. If the state of Oregon had more
men like Governor West who believes
in enforcing the law. It would not be
necessary to declare martial law la
' If Mr. Moser thinks he can be elect
ed by the votes of saloons and the
corrupt ring, now is the time for him
to show his colors and get Into t'ai
fight with them. But to the voters
of Oregon I would say Beware of Gus

Strongly Indorsing Governor West.
Newport. Or., Jan. 18. To the Edi
tor of The Journal Sure enough,
"what la all this assault on Governor
West about, anyway?" Who makes it?
What crime has he committed? Has
he broken his oath of office? Has h
perjured himself in any way?
A lot of bums scattered here and
there through th state have been
continually violating law under the
wink and nod of recreant officials till
they nearly think they are under the

In the whiskey business.
To think of that disgraceful nest at
Copperfield carrying on almost every
conceivable manner of wrpngdolng,
even by the mayor and councllmen
themselves, and the officials of the
county refusing absolutely refusing
to enforce the law, even when asked
by Governor West to do so! We talk
of anarchy, but this is a fair sample
of the lowest grade of anarchy and

are all out of humor because the gov

As I see It the county officials of
Baker county. In falling or refusing to
stop gambling, illicit dives and liquor
selling, are themselves lawbreakers.
And because they have been volatlng
and allowing others to violate the law
for years, the Oregonlan and Mr.
Moser seem to think our governor

Captain Washington Rawlings and wife, who celebrated sixty-first
. wedding anniversary.
Captain Washington Rawlings, civil
war veteran, and his wife celebrated
the sixty-first anniversary of their
marriage last Friday, and in honor of
the event their daughters and relatives
honored them with a dinner at their
home, 421 East Fifty-fourth street.
During the dinner Captain Rawlings
displayed an old Confederate flag, one
he had captured during the battle of
Big Black River, Mississippi, in May,
'63. when 235 of his regiment were
killed and 3500 Confederates were cap
tured. The flag belonged to the Sixty-
first Tennessee Infantry. Captain
Rawlings was then in command of
Company F, Twenty-third Iowa Infan
try, attached to Lawier s brigade.
Mr. and Mrs. Rawlings were married
In De Witt. Clinton county, Iowa, Jan
uary 16, 1853. The year following they
moved to Page county, Iowa, where
they mnle their home for 39 years.
Thev lien moved to Jackson county.
Oregon, where Mr. Rawlings bought a
farm and lived there until 1908, when
they moved to Wyoming and remained
there five years, returning to Oregon
In 1913. and taking up their residence

Mrs. Hendren conceived the Idea of
making Wild West dolls while doctors
at Bt Vincent's hospital fought to save
her from death. Her illness was so se
vere that she was compelled to -remain
in bed for seven months. She had pre
viously been employed In the leather
goods department of Meier & Frank.
"I had work in leather, and one day
the idea of making Wild Weat dolls
came into my mind," she said. "I had
never heard of any dolls of that sort
and It struck me thatthe west certain

Bourne's plan, of circulating petitions
without pay, for he says his funds
have run short and that he will need
about $300 more, to bear the cost of
setting the other half of his required
signatures. If it requires $600 to get
the signatures for one initiative meas
ure, I think we had better change
our plan of working.
But what interested me most in Mr.
Cridge's letters, was the plan of as
sessing that he proposed. I actually
believe It would work. H wants the
people of each county to call a mass

assessors and the boards of equalisa

county courts orders not to interfere,
and then to give the board of equaliza

sors, and thereby legalize them, and
If any of them don't obey orders, re

!n Portland with their daughter and
son-in-law. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Eads.
Although Mr. Rawlings Is 80 years
old, his favorite diversion Is kicking
the electric chandeliers. It is splendid
exf rcise to keep young, he insists. Mrs.
Rawlings declares she can do the same,
but does not consider it dignified for a
woman of her years.
Captain Rawlings captured th Con
federate colors single-handed. During
a charge he overtook the retreating
flag-bearer, and shouting. "That's my
flag!" he grabbed the staff with his
left hand and pressed the point of his
sword against the possessor. The color-bearer
surrendered Immediately, and
today the old veteran considers his
prize as his best loved possession.
Among those who attended the din
ner were their three daughters and
sons-in-law. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Eads
and their daughter, of Portland; Mr.
and Mrs. George E. Fox, of Central
Point: Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Cooper, of
Portland, and Mrs. M. Passno, a niece
of Mrs. Rawlings. A son, L. T. Raw
linga who resides at Sheridan, Wye,
was unable to be present
"It was several weeks later before I
was able to put the Idea into practice,
because I was toe weak to ply a needle
When I got stronger, I made a couple
of dolls, and they took. I number sev

They later took along a few samples of
my dolls, and everywhere received or

Mrs. Hendren is assisted by her little
7-year-old daughter, Maxlne, who is as
expert as her mother in stringing beads
and cutting out the pretty little gar
ments of leather and brilliant colored
cloth in which the dolls are dressed.
An Idea of how popular she has
found her dolls Is seen in th fact that
she bought up every brown eyed doll
in Portland and Seattle before th holi
days, and is now compelled to use blue
eyed ones for her Indians at present,
because the market has been swept
clean of the dark eyed kind.
Mrs. Hendren has ordered a large lot
of brown hued dolls with raven locks,
black eyes and Indian features from
