The Ioyal Order of Moose at Its ladies' night last evening did Itself proud. Its two floors In the Royal buildinpr were packed with members of the loage and friends. The appre hensions of Andy Weinberger, dictator; R. 8. Beatty, secretary, and Dr. Banner Brooks, chairman of the entertain ment committee, were that there would be too many, not that there would be too few. Admission was lim- i ited to members only and their ladies. I To make things interesting George L. Baker was on the program with his entire aggregation of the Baker I theatre, and had his stage carpenter. property man and several assistants at work all the afternoon in the up per hall. The following is the program for the Baker aggregation: Maude Dial, character artist, in "The Eccentric Dressmaker"; Harriet Berlene, dramat ic sketch. "Years After"; Carl Strousse, the man; James Morell, the agent; Clara Valentine, the woman; scene, a railway station. Mrs. E. Hogan and Miss King in coon dances and stories; George L. himself; "Broomstick Bel den," a comedy musical act; W. J. Carkeelc, rube trick pianist. The au dience thoroughly enjoyed the "stunts."

C. J. Smith Will Becelve Many Tote of Members of Opposing Party Who rear Withycombe. Rev. C. T. McPherson of Clatskanie. who formerly occupied a Portland charge, was In town for a few hours yesterday on personal business. Indi cations are, she said, that work on the Columbia highway, somewhat demor alized by the recall election in Colum bia county, will gradually be read- Justed so that the county s linK will be closed and an unobstructed boule vard to the sea established. "Columbia county is right In line for progress and the people are confi dent of better things," said Mr. Mc Pherson. The farmers are prosperous and are planning for a big year in 1915." "Columbia county, long a Repub lican stronghold, is fairly teeming with Chamberlain sentiment," contin ued Mr. McPherson. "I notice it es pecially since the disclosures have been made regarding the Booth con nections with the timber 'cases. Many old-time Republicans have told me they were going to vote for Chamber lain, partly because they want to voice indorsement of the Wilson ad ministration and partly because, they resent the candidacy of Booth." C. J. Stmlth Popular. Mr. McPherson, who has long been a personal friend of Robert A. Booth, had urged his associates to attempt to dissuade him from the senatorial campaign because of the timber land trouble In the federal courts. They told ' him, however, that the timber scandal would not be brought up against him; that the influence of the friends of Booth would take care of that. Mr. McPherson said he finds much sentiment for Dr. C. J. Smith and other Democrats throughout his coun ty. This, he was informed, is be-' cause of the spread of the opinion that the great need in the present campaign is to sustain President Wil son and the policies he has inaugu rated, as well as the growing belief that the election of Dr. Withycombe to the governorship means a breaking away from the Oregon system. Flegel's Strength. Growing;. He says his county will vote "dry." In this city Mr. McPherson found a constantly growing sentiment in favor of A- F. Flegel, Democratic nominee for congress. The churches of Clatskanie will hold a union service in the Presbyterian church next Sunday evening to give a final boost to the prohibition amend ment. Mrs. Minnie I. Hyde, presi dent of the county W. C T. U., will be in charge. To Protect Imperial Valley. Los Angeles, Cal., Oct: 29.

E. WHEELER, CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEE OF ONE HUNDRED ADMITS in Public Print it : That Prohibition is AN INFRINGEMENT OF PERSONAL LIBERTY. That the word "DISTRIBUTION" was DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT of the proposed "prohibition" amendment. ' That "ANY CITIZEN" may ship liquor "direct from some other state to HIS OWN HOME." Every Claim Made by the Anti-Prohibition Forces Against the Proposed Prohibition Amend- ment in Oregon Is Confessed in the Three Above Admissions The Anti-Frohibition Forces Have Steadf astly Claimed: that "Prohibition is an infringement of PERSONAL LIBERTY." Mr. Wheeler admits it word for word' in public print. 5 that "Prohibition will not prohibit." Mr. Wheeler's admission proves his Committee of One Hundred s not trying to prohibit. - that "Prohibition does not mean dry Oregon." r that "Prohibition would be a death blow to the present .healthy growth of TRUE TEMPERANCE SENTI MENT in the land." Mr. Wheeler's admission provesit. that "Prohibition would let down the bars to BLIND-PIGSERS and BOOTLEGGERS, who - would, deal in deadly decoctions," the same law allowing any "blind-digger" with a HOME to ship liquor "direct from some other state to HIS own home. The BL1ND-PIGGER is as much of a "CITIZEN" as any other man or woman in Oregon. The blind-pigger, because he. is not under inspection by State, Federal or City of ficials, will "manufacture" one barrel of PURE WINE, BEER or LIQUOR into a DOZEN BARRELS of POISONOUS BEVERAGES that will make z new generation of imbeciles, idiots and criminals in Oregon. Mr. Wheeler's Three Blundering Admissions Are the Best Three Reasons Why His Misnamed, Misleading "Prohi bition" Amendment Is an Alarming Menace to the State IT IS AN ALARMING MENACE BECAUSE he would have the people of this state vote away their PERSONAL LIBERTY in the belief that they were voting for a "dry Oregon." BECAUSE he would take away the present splen did HOME RULE and LOCAL OPTION LAWS from the CITIES and TOWNS and transfer liquor traffic control to the state. BECAUSE, with all kinds of vile liquor being shipped in "FROM OTHER STATES" into "ANY CITIZEN'S HOME," not subject to Fed eral, state or local inspection, it will "be ENTIRE LY UNREGULATED, and will become as "free as water." BECAUSE it will permit any BOY OR MAN to "ship" in whiskey in any amount, without even having to SIGN HIS NAME with the TRANS PORTATION COMPANIES, as under the present HOME RULE and LOCAL OPTION laws. BECAUSE it will in no way check the IRRESPON SIBLE DRINKER, whom a "prohibition law" is said to protect. BECAUSE it would wipe out .$900,000 in LI CENSE REVENUES in the state, without aiding TRUE TEMPERANCE. BECAUSE it would seriously INCREASE TAXES in the state, without aiding TRUE TEMPER ANCE. BECAUSE it would seriously cripple the HOP . YARDS and HOP INDUSTRY of the state, in jure a $3,000,000 ANNUAL PAYROLL OF 50, 000 HOP-PICKERS and sadly reduce $6,O0d,000 ANNUAL LNCOME to the state from HOP SALES; without aiding TRUE TEMPERANCE, and ';. BECAUSE it would force liquor into THOUSANDS of HOMES in this state, to be drunk WHOLE SALE by UNRESTRAINED DRINKERS before the very eyes of the CHILDREN WHOM TRUE TEMPERANCE WOULD PROTECT, thus deal ing a serious blow to TRUE TEMPERANCE in the HOME, without in any way aiding TRUE TEMPERANCE, and BECAUSE it would build up an ARMY OF BOOT LEGGERS in the HIGHWAYS and BYWAYS, teaching HYPOCRISY, DECEIT AND LYING TO MEN AND BOYS and WOMEN AND GIRLS, too thus dealing another serious blow to TRUE TEMPERANCE, without in any way aiding TRUE TEMPERANCE. Read What Mr. Wheeler, Chairman of the "Pro- ; hibitipn" Committee of One Hundred, says in ji his own words in the "official dry organ," The f Evening Telegram of Portland, Sept. 29, 1914: 8. "The 'wet' forces are seeking to make capital of the fact that the proposed Oregon dry amendment-DOES NOT FORBID THE 'DISTRIBUTION' OF LIQUOR, but merely its 'MANUFACTURE and 'SALE.' "THEY ARE CORRECT. This was done DESIGN EDLY and DELIBERATELY BY THOSE WHO DREW THIS AMENDMENT. Oregon has many citizens, especially many of foreign birth, who desire. to have liquor IN THEIR HOMES. They feel that it wouldfbe a HARDSHIP and an INFRINGEMENT ': OF THEIR PERSONAL LIBERTY absolutely to forbid them the use of liquor. iU - "The present proposed law DOES NOT FORBIDTHE USE OF LIQUOR by any citizen, be he poor or ricli, pro vided he wishes to have this SHIPPED DIRECT FROM. SOME OTHER STATE TO HIS OWN HOME.";' Can Any Intelligent Voter Fail to See the . VOTE 333 X NO - And Put an End to this Prohibition Agitation.
