A WEAK DEFENSE
Last week's Itemlzer brings us

haps he is Judging others by himself.
The fact Is a certain business man
of Dallas who favors a wet county
says such argument Is false. People
go to Salem because of peculiar con
ditions obtaining in Dallas irrelevant
to the liquor question.
If the Itemizer only knew that a
very well-to-do citizen of the county
Is only waiting for the county to go
dry again to put up one of the best
Dallas buildings in one of the best lo
calities, he might be more careful in
his cry. "discrimination."

POLICE RECORDS GIVE FRCOF
The Dallas reords show that for
the year ending June ;!U, 1H08. 78 ar
rests were made for drunkenness.
For the two years ending June 30,
1910, there were 02 arres;a made tor
the same cause. That is, in the two
years under local option there were
less than one-half as many arrests
marto Ha in one viar under the. sa-
, loons. ,
1 The records of Independence make
la better showing. For the year end
iing June 30. 1908, there were 47 ar
rests for drunkenness. For the two
years ending June 30, 1910, there
were only 18. In other words, dur
ing tUa torn vpnrs under local option
only a little more than one-third as
many arrests for drunkenness as in
one year under license. This alone
shows that prohibition prohibits.

ty. THE REAL MOTIVE
It is commendable for an editor to
make a valiant fight for the protec
tion, of the boys and girls. , That the
editor of the Observer has recently
.itaken this role is good news. He Is
;at present greatly troubled over the
'fact that so many mtnors are getting
liquor not indeed in Dallas or Polk
'cnuntv. but from Portland and Salem
through the mail order system. He ia
apparently aware of the fact that
Dallas, being a dry town,, does not
sell much, if any, liquor to minors
and that, it being so hard to get Hq
I uor at home.these boys are compelled
to send to Portland and Salem.
The only thing that puzzles us is
why the editor did not find out a
year ago that these boys are getting
liquor? Why should he discover this
fact just before election? Has he sud
denly become altruistic and seeks
now to uplift the boys by doing his
best to bring back the saloon into
Dallas and Polk county so these boys
can get their drinks at home? Or is
he simply driven by self defense to
pick at a last straw in order to save
his own booze and his booze friends?
Is it not .a fact after all that the
boys have always been able to get
liquor in Dallas, but that the alarmed
editor has not cared enough about
the matter to investigate? Why did
he not plead in behalf of the boys
a year ago?
What is his real motive, boys or
