It Is impossible for the Enterprise
to print the many excellent articles
and letters that have come In behalf
of a dry stale and county. The fol
lowing letter deserves special notice.
It is a plea from the northwest part
of tho county. Head it before voting:
Mr. W. P. Miller, Dallas, Oregon.
Dear Sir: In reply to your request
for information concerning the con
ditions of the liquor traffic in this
hum nf lnllt countv will Bar that It
is much better since tho county went
dry In 108. Not only among me
Indians but also among tne wmies
there have been less than one-tenin
as many drunken men. While the
gallon houses were being run It was
unsafe for women and children to
travel along the road, and rendered
the community unfit to live in. We
think the condition, as it existed dur
ing the time the county was wet, a
disgrace to the county and sincerely
hope that the voters of Polk county
will aid us in protecting this com
munity from such a condition in the

The V. 8. Supreme Court says:
"There Is no Inherent right In a

by retail." Thla la a fact.
Again. It says:
"If a loss of revenue should accrue
to the t'nlted 8tats (from prohibi

of ardent spirits, she will be the
gainer' a lliounand fold In the health,

This too Is a fact.

"More misery and crime are caused
by saloons than any other curse."

other fact worth while.
Koa If the aaloon la the nation's
worst curse morally and socially and
If economically It does not pay, there
Is absolutely no reason why it should
not be prohibited. This Is the one
cold fact that burns so terribly Into
all the sophlstrlea the wets can give.
The nol ce records or uauas ana in

towns the number of arrests for
drunkenness during the two years of

fifty, and that the record shows for
the year endln June 30. laos, unaer

years of local option there were Just
two-firths as many arrests as in one
wet year. Reduced it would be in
one dry year there are only one-nuu
many arrests as under wet. And
yet the sheriff has not enrorceu uie

very severely cold fact.
Over twenty busineHS men In Dal

another cold fact.
