It Is found that there are a number of "ignored" or obsolete laws on the statute books, and still a greater num ber of ordinances under this class in every city and town in the state. Many advocate the plan of enforc ing the laws to the letter or repeal ing them. Many oppose this plan and claim it is better to keep them on tho statute books as a sort of whip over offenders. They claim that were such laws not on the stat ute books, violations would become so flagrant that conditions would be come intolerable, and that while tho laws are on the books the minute an offender steps beyond the ordinary he may be punished, and that the laws aro beneficial for this reason, even If they aro seldom applied. "We have as many laws on our books for the preservation of the mprals of the community and the en forcement of tho observation of the Sabbath and the general moral up building of the community as any state in .ic Union," said a prominent la'wyer Sunday, "but there is a long list of them that are completely ig nored and have become practically obsolete. And town ordinances, any councilman or citizen can get most any ordinance passed along tnese lines without a dissenting voice. But after they are passed, they are for gotten or ignored, and many of them are dead letters. The officers aro not to blnmo. Tho , jr; community Is responsible. The ma-1 J1 joiity in this country rule. What theism majority desires or says must go. The public pulse Is examined by the. officers with all of the care of that or a patient by a .skilled physician, and officers who are elected by this public, try to cany out Its desires and .necessities, if they should not. the public, which rules, would find officers that would do its bidding. "It is true that many of tho public would have the whole matter changed, would enforce the laws to ine letter, would purify the comunity at any cost and enforce the laws if it should revolutionize the whole community, but a majority look upon the matter from a different point of view, or are careless, or are weak-kneed, or are out and out in sympathy with a wide open community. "And it would revolutionize the community should all of the laws on the statute books be put in force to morrow. Here are a few of tho laws that are ignored, some of them wholly and some of them in a way "The Sabbath laws, laws against the social evil. laws against gam bling, laws against bribery, laws un der which licenses are Issued to saloons, laws governing prize-flghtin disturbing religious worship, selling lottery tickets, selling liquors and firearms to Indians, election Iawb. selling liquors near fair grounds, dis orderly conduct or obscene language in presence of women, destroying trees, fences and breaking window panes, cruelty to animals, and a dozen or more others. "City ordinances also cover these laws-and include many more that are ignored. "Suppose that all of these laws and ordinances were enforced to tho letter tomorrow," said tho legal gen. tlemeu. '"Only druggists and restaur ants and hotels would be open on Sundays. Eveiy man guilty of any of the social evils would be placed under arrest. The houses of doubt ful character would be closed with a firm hand. Every man that entered a rooming house, save for the pur pose of spending a virtuous night of repose would be arrested. Every saloon that should fall to close Its doors, both rear and front, and all side entraucos Saturday night at 12 and remain closed until Sunday night at 12 o'clock, would be pounced upon and the proprietor or person in charge arrested. Every person caught playing cards in any room, or adjoin ing any room where linuors are sold would be escorted to tho jail, pro vided lie did not give ample seeuri ty. "Auy merchant who should sell as much as a collar button within these hours would meet with like fate. The drug store could remain open, but could only sell medicines. The sale of a cigar or a toothpick would sub ject tho proprietor to a fine. The restaurant men and hotel men could only serve a. meal where good whole some food was required. No wine, no beer, no cigar after the meal. "Every man who should use ob scene language within the hearing of a woman would bo Immediately ar rested. It matters not whether he should know she was near or not. If he should use such language on tho street while she should chance to bo passing ho would be subject to the fine "If the letter of the law was en forced." continued tho gentleman, such a waking up would Uke place BSIFISESSED XDZZEeZECa? f MAKER TO WEARER 2 Wear a Straight' Front KID FITTING CORSET With One of Oar Salts and the STYLE Is YOURS FOR KEEPS KLEINVERT "HOOK ON" HOSE SUPPORTERS Materially Aid In Keeping Jhe Form Erect.

Tno restrictions In granting saloons licenso are such that should they be enforced two-thirds of the saloons in Pendleton, would bo closed tomorrow, for their licenses wpuld be revoked. Prize-fighting is absolutely prohibited in tills state, though we frequently have "boxing contests" to a finish. Tho sale of lottery tickets is absolutely prohibited, yet one may purchase a hundred a day in most .cities if he so desires. The sale of opium is prohibited, yet hundreds go to their graves annually the vic tims of 'dope.' Carrying concealed weanons is prohibited, yet there. !s scarcely a 'young blood' that has not a gun in his pocket at times. There is a statute against injuring trees, breaking fences and windows, yet this law is violated witli Impunity every day. The law against cruelty to animals is a dead letter. "There is a staute against selling liqours and firearms and ammunition to Indians, yet if the offender !b not prosecuted by the government for the first olfense, tho state never looks after it. And there has never been a prosecution against any one for selling Indians firearms or ammuni tion. "Any one guilty of selling liquor, or giving it away on election day vio lates the law. Any person guilty ot disorderly conduct near tho olection rolls violates the law. If all who aro guilty of these offenses wero arrested, the day after election would llnd large portion of the population in jail, and some of tho officers-elect with it. "The mo3t stringent of ail of thes( laws is the one requiring olilcoru to enforce them. They uro required to take an oatli belore entering upon tno discharge of their duties that they will enforce all of these laws. Any violation coming within their knowl edge, they aro required to Invent! gate and make arrests. Thoy aro not required to wait for complaint, but must look after tho matter them selves. "Suppose tho officers should do this? They genoially know every thing that Is going on. Suppose that the officers next Sunday should place under arrest every man that opens a place of business except tho ones enumerated In tho statutes? Sup pose he should arrest today every man guilty of any of the violations ot tho statute regulating the social ovll? Suppose be should arrest every per son guilty of any of the offenses enu merated In these 'Ignored' stautos? Would It not create a involution in social, business and court circles?" Yet the officers are not to blame continued tho gentleman, "tho public rules, and whatever It says must go. If It demands that certain laws must bo ignored it must be obeyed. There is no other tribunal to which to appeal. The time may come when all of theso laws may bo enforced, and moro stringent ones, besides, hut It Is evident that that time is In the future."
