Attacks on Saloon Brought Rec
ognition and Elevation.to
By Victor I. Carlson
The churchy militant is the
greatest factor in the crusade
against the liquor traffic, and was
of the. 18th amendment.
There are, It rs true, the anti
saloon league with Its Wayne B.
Wheeler, whose recent death sad
dened the dry forces or tne na
tion; the prohibition party with
it never failing, support of tem
perance Ideals; and the Women's i
Christian Temperance union.
Yet, what Is the league but a
group of paid workars, operating
on money raised by the churches;
the prohibition .party but an. asso-
elation of a few earnest souls, ion
since outlived in usefulness; anf
the W. C. T. U. but an outgrowth
of church organization?
The church, almost from its
very beginning In this country,
commenced the campaign for tem
perance. Nearly 200 ecclesiastics
have lost their lives in the move
ment, vlctijjs of bootlegger's bul
lets. And nowhere in the ranks
can be found a more able foe of
liquor than Clarence True Wilson,
secretary of the temperance, pro
hibition, and public morals board
of "the Methodist church. He main
tains an office at the nation's cap
Itol, and spends his time lobbying
in congress in the Interests of the
dry forces. The doctor arrived in
Salem Tuesday, to address the
l7 rJJ agQ Dr wilson
hibition law in Oregon that he
came into national prominence.'"
qolonel EL. M...Hofer. in, 1910
and 1914, challenged Dr. Wilson
to a debate on the liquor question,
The two men journeyed all over
tne Btate, appearing before coun-
ty .and state fairs, staging heated
arguments wherever people could
b marshaled to listen. After
Dr wilson had vehemently con
demned the liquor forces. Colonel
Hofer would get up and make nu
merous harsh remarks about the
prohibitionists. The two protagon
ists then would adjourn togetner
to gome quiet confectionery and
sip contentedly from a milk shake
or soda water.
The largest. crowd addressed by
standing ability as a platform
bi horse race program. Between
heats, the two men would get Qut
inijr0nt of the stands and .launch
. .1 1 1
into an argument. Both sides lost
an qual number of converts in
this engagement as the ace fans
were in no mood to Judge orator
Attracted by Dr. Wilson's out
standing ability at a platform
worker, and his zeal ns a prohl-
bitionlst, the board of bishops rec
ommended tor. Jhe general confer
ence of the Methodist church that
he be placed op the board of tem
perance. His selection as secre
tary soon followed.

same trial and as fair a chance to
show what it can do as the li

And crests of eagle's wings.

Of nations yet to be; .
The first low wash pf waves, where soon
Should roll a human sea, 1 -
The rudiments of empire here
Were plastic yet and warm ;
The chaos of a mighty world
Was rounding into form.
Each rude and jostling fragment
Its fitting place did find
The raw materials of a state,
Its muscle and its mind
A bride-groom might forget his bride,
The like has oft been seen,
The monarch might forget his crown
But such has seldom been,
A mother might forget her child
That nestled on her knee;
But Oregon shall not forget
Her founder, JASON LEE.
She'll dress his grave in living green
Despite the winter's shock;
His name impress upon the bronze
Or chisel in the rock. 1

To rise upon that other shore,
