HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY. AUG. 11, 1910
TION IS FARCE
Mayor of Tillamook iSays
Plan Has Proved a;
The sentiment throughout Ore
eon is radically in favor of the
movement to give each locality
and incorporated city a voice in
, saying how its affaire, as regards
the sale of liouor shall be con
ducted is shown by letters from
business men in all lints of trade,
' professional men. mechanics and
iarmers in all parts of the state,
which have been received at the
headqaarters of the Greater Ore
eon Ilome Rule Association.
Theseletters have been pouring in
in ever-iuereasiuf quantitiea.gand
tbey are especially noticeable as
coming from dry counties.
A letter from Thomas Coates,
Mayor of Tillamook City, to U. 0
McAllister, manager of the Great
er Oregon Home Rule Association,
is a good sample of the letters
w hich have been received recently.
Mr Coates' letter follows:
"I beg to acknowledge receipt
of your esteemed favor of the
29th inst, and take great pleasure
in signing the application for
membership in your association.
"For nearly sir years Tillamook
county had been a "dry" county,
so fur as the law is concerned, but
I believe there is just as much
liquor used as ever. A large quan
tity is sold iu violation of. the. larc.
The local officers have honestly
done their beet to enforce the law,
but the difficulty of getting the
necessary evidence is bo great that
it is almost impossible to secure
enough to convict, and in almost
every instance j where there has
been a conviction, the character of
the witnesses and their methods of
securing eyidence has been so re
pulsive that the juries Lave con ..
detuned the witness more than the
law breakers. Were it not so de
plorable, the situation in Tilla
mook county, so far as the law is
concerned, could be' termed a farce.
Tillamook City was always againrt
. prohibition, but the rural districts
carried the day for it. As a se-,
quence, our finances have suffered
severely without checking in the
least the use or abuse of liquor,
besides making it much more dif
ficult to control the .places where
it is sold. I have heard, so many
of our citizens express themselves
that I am sure Tillamook county
will go 'wet' at the next election
but in any event, I am heartily in
accord with the plan to give in
corporated cities the right to gov
em their own affairs, and I shaj
be pleased to do anything I can to
help in that direction."

In Portland Mr. Scott leaves two
sons, John H. and Ambrose B., and
one daughter, Miss Judith.
Mr. Scott besau failing nearly

Tucker Scott, an Illinois farmer.

In the family of several children
was one. a stalwart boy 14 years old,
Harvey W. Scott, whose name was
destined to become irrevocably at
taobed to all in Oregon that in practi
callv a half-century of time would
have a bearing on Western progress,
stability and right living.
Coming to Oregon with empty
hands, and a knowledge only of hard
work and of such books as are taught
in a district school, this youth plunged
into the work of reducing a wilder
ness to a human habitation, gained
the rudiments of an education by ap
plication in leisure hours, worked bia
way through a pioneer university,
cast his lot with a struggling news
paper, and oreated an editorial stand
ard that ranked with that of the
greatest journals of the country.
In 1865 Mr. Scott succeeded Samuel
A. Clarke as editor of The Oregonian.

The development of all of Oregon

Mr. Scott. To him will be given
much of the-credit for the final open

transportation. During the recent
tour through the interior of the state.
Louis W. Hill, president of the Great
Northern Railroad, said in numerons
addresses that the attention of the
Hill interests had been finally attracted
to the opportunities for railway devel
opment in this state by the efforts
of Mr. Scott. Freqopnt references to
the isolation of the district seen in
the editorial columns of The Oreson
ian had first attracted the attention
of James J. Hill and these led to con
sultations on the subject with Mr.
Scott. President Hill gave to Mr.
Scott by name a large share of the
credit for the opening of Interior

president of the Lewis and Clark Fair
Association, but declined re-election

When the old Associated Press dis
solved 12 years ago Mr. Scott took an
aotive part in its reorganization and
it was largely through his suggestion
that - the Associated Press was reor
ganizea on the present co-operative
basis. Upon reorganization of the
association, he was elected a director
and continued in office until the time
of his death, making annual trips
to the meetings of the board.
