Democrats Would Like to Fight Fair.
It is deplorable, that we can not
have fair fighting by the opposition.
If we desire to place this campaign
upon a high level of the discussion of
principle, we almost are forced to de-
cend to a lower level and indulge in
hand to hand conflict with the man
who is willing to misrepresent and
lie and abuse for political effect.
However, the theory of the demo
cratic campaign is to make it a posi
tive fight, to offer' something good
to the voters and to say that this is
what you want, rather than to in
dulge in mere negations. If they
will let us, we will fight the cam
paign along these lines. I hope they
will. J. E. LATHROP.

This Plan of Proceedure Originated
at Temperance Meetings Which
Have Been Held in the Garden
City by Colonel C. J. Holt for the
Last Ten Days.
Walla Walla, April 24. A sensa
tion was created on tho streets of
this city yesterday afternoon at 5
o'clock when about 50 women appear
ed on East Main street, marching to
ward the business center. The wo
men were marching double file, in
good order, with the solemn tread of
a funeral procession. In the lead
was the president of the Eastern
Washington Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union accompanied by the
president of the local union. Follow
ing were a number of prominent la
dies, wives of business men, two
wives of councilmen and several
prominent church workers. The pro
cession passed through the business
center and in front of the nine sa
loons occupying a whole block, with
out a stop. In front of a west end
saloon the women halted and entered
without saying a word. Here a sen
sation occurred, and crowds gather
ed hurriedly to discuss the unusual
When In the saloon the ladles made
notes of those found, of slot ma
chines, picture machines and other
tilings prohibited by law. Four sa
loons were thus visited. In one a
mere boy was found with a pail wait
ing to secure a bucket of beer for
friends who had sent him to the
place. No disturbance was aroused
at any place and the women treated
the barkeepers with every courtesy.
In return the saloon men were cour
teous, but some hangers-on played
the ruffian act by suggesting to
friends that the proper thing would
-be to. Invite the visitors to "have
When the fourth saloon had been
visited the women formed again and
continued their inarch baclc to East
Main street where the body disband
ed. The plan of visiting the saloons
seems to have been developed at the
temperance meetings which have
been held in this city by Colonel C.
J. Holt for ten days. The report
gained credence yesterday that three
boys had been found In a salopn in
the district visited a few days ago,
and the women apparently wanted
to impress the keepers of the places
with the fact that they were advised
of the practice of selling liquor to
minors and proposed to stop it.
In this city are located about 34
saloons and two breweries. Until a
few months ago the saloons were
kept open on Sundays and did much
as they chose. Just before harvest a
petition signed by a large number of
farmers was presented to Oscar Cain,
prosecuting attorney, asking that the
saloons be colsed on Sunday to al
low working men to come to town
and return In a condition to work. Ir
previous years serious difficulty had
been encountered with drunken
workmen, and farmers were tired of
it. The matter was taken up and the
saloons were closed. Several efforts
to open resulted In defeat and fines,
and finally tho matter seemed to have
been settled permanently. Still com
plaints of illegal selling to minors,
and cases of drunkenness among
young women have been heard with
no good foundation upon which to be
gin legal proceedings. The move yes
