Novel Temperance Scheme.
The great temperance work now
going on in this country, is not con
lined wholly to the radical organiza
tions of the land, but is receiving
much help from a recently inaugura
ted society of a rather novel character,
in New York city. The first public
meeting of the Business mens so
ciety," was held a few evenings since
at Chickering hall, Mr. F. J5. Tlmr
ber, well known to Astorians, oceu
p3Ting the chnir. There are some new
features about this society which ren
der it especially remarkable in this
reformatory age. In the iirst place,
its declared object and purport is for
"the encouragement of moderation in
the nse of intoxicating liquors." The
occasion of the first public meeting of
the society had the tendency to bring
out a large audience. Among the
prominent persons on the platform,
were Dr. Crosby, Peter Cooper,, Thur
low Weed, Dr. Frothingham, L. W.
Bates, Henry W. Baldwin and Walt.
Whitman. Several new songs were
sung, prepared expressly for the oc
casion, and much enthusiasm prevail
among those present, a large portion
of whom were ladies. The meeting
was opened by a short address from
the chairman, in which he explained
the object of the society.
As a part of the new base-line of
operations, the society proposes to
adjninister three distinctive pledges as
follews: 1. A pledge of total aosti
nence. 2. A pledge not to drink in
toxicating beverages during business
hours. 3. Not to partake of intoxica
ting beverages al the expense of any
other person wluilcwr, iwr to invite an
other to partake of the same, during a
special time. It is argued, that the
second and third of these pledges will
act as entering wedges to the first, and,
on the whole make it much easier for
many habitual drinkers to thus taper
off than to adopt and live up to the
total abstinence principally from the
start. On the source of ccononry
alone, this society, it is believed, will
rapidly grow in strength and popu
larity. It is well known that many families
in large cities, would gladly dispense
with wine at the table could they do
so and consistently maintain their
standing in the circle of society in
which they, by force of circumstances
alone, are compelled to move. A
great man' men of limited means,
mingle, together with their families,
in the best society in large cities, and
they find, to their vexation and sor
row, that the establishment of a wine
cellar, merely for the sake of a mor
bid fashion and vain popularity, is a
continued and ruinous drain on their
finances. The expenses for the wine
list alone, in some of the aristocratic
households of Now York city, amount
to an enormous sum during the your,
and from significant hints thrown out,
it may be surmised that many hun
dreds of the ''first families" in our
large cities and country towns, will
hail with gladness the advent of the
"Business mens society," as an expe
dient and practical means of a deliver
ance from the wine bibbliug thral
dom. It is encouraging to know that this
new movement is participated in by
men well and favorably known
throughout the whole country. The
present mayor of New York, son of
Peter Cooper, has always been a
staunch advocate of the temperance
reform, an assurance which will prove
doubly inspiring to the friends of the
cause, when it is coupled with the
fact that his venerable father has now
come out as one of the principal
workers in the new society. It can
not be denied that we are living in
the fever-age of a great temperance
reformation, and thoae devotftd men
and women who have long stood in
the front rank of the contest, have
good reason to rejoice at the signs of
"Baby carriages of the best sfcys,
and at loir prices, at Loeb's.
The Forger Iane.
The youthful forger, R. L. Lane,
who was taken to Portland from As-
4-.tiit i-kr niiin? r?riT i. rAi- nu
met at the wharf by Mr. Sam Uu'ulter, :
one or Jus victims, tie uocumxl to
converse with him, but expressed con
trition for his conduct, and said he
hoped there was sulficieut money
enough to indemnify him and Cap
tain Ainsworth for their losses. It
was his first offense and he was drawn
into it from necessity. The prison
er is really a fine looking
young fellow of 21 years, medium
height, smooth face, high, broad fore
head, ruddy complexion, bright blue
eyes, inn-set mouth and chin, a man
of intelligence and education, evident
ly used to moving in good society.
He insists in claiming Lafayette Lane
and General Joe Luiie as his relatives,
and also says that ex-O'overnor Lane
of Indiana is his iirst cousin, from
whom he has a bona fide letter of re
commendation. His father's name is
W. A. Lane, a large land owner and
farmer m northern Missouri, worth
$300,000. By advice of counsel he re
fuses to be interviewed, and is very
reticent about his aifairs, apparently
fully alive to the weighty charge
against him and his attendant punish
ment. He claims the forgery for
which he is arrested is his first offense,
an acknowledgement which bears the
impress of truth, .considering the
bungling manner of his attempted es
cape. Previous to the commission of
the felony, he had .a number of photo
graphs tiiken by Ml. Buchtel, and
neglected to call fothem, a fact which
would have secured his apprehension.
He had no thought of forgery until
moneyless and unable to secure suit
able employment; he saw Captain
Ainsworth's signature m the Stine
house in Walla Walla, when the idea
first suggested itself and was no sooner
thought of than executed. He forged
that gentleman's name to a pass to Port
land on the Oregon Steam Navigation
company's boat, and met with such
signal success that he concluded to
to continue the imposition, without
any intention of stopping until taken
up with a round turn. It is just as
well to convince the arrival from Mis
souri that these little things cannot be
done in Oregon with impunity. That
he is a practiced expert his work
proves, and he would continue at the
same business, did he succeed in ef
fecting his escape, is almost a cer
tainty. He is young, strong, healthy
and intelligent, and none oto good
to earn an honest livelihood,
like thousands of others who have
chosen Oregon for their homes and
earn their bread br the sweat of their
brows. His work was of too syste
matic a description to plead youth
and inexperience as an excuse.
