LAW OF COMPENSATION.
Thi i a question in which the law
of compensation operates. Will the
triumph of local option compensate
the hundred and hundred of fam
. jlies fJ Oregon,, which . are up-jxirU-d
directly by the hop industry,
for the loss which they would sustain?
The poor women who suffer from the
effect of intemperance will not escape
through the operation of local option.
Their dissolute husband will have
only to tep from the clotted saloon to
the open drugstore. The saloon men
are making no fight in this election.
It ia cheaper to operate drug
store than to pay licenso to operate
a saloon. For every saloon closed
through operation of local option
there will bo open a drugstore.
Ungulate tho saloon, but by all
menns do not vote dry. Don't abolish
the hop yards of Oregon.
OPINION OF INTERNAL REV
Shocking statistics have been given
out by an officer of the internal reven
ue department showing that two
years ago tho counties of Oregon that
went drv had 1452 federal liquor li
censes, while after being dry two years

they have lb2, or an increase m the como tQ tho

parently little renult. The failui of
the prohibitionist to w-eure convic

against partie in Albany, together
with the method employed to wrure
evidence, only served to add to the
bitter feeling. The employ nt of
W, L. Pason, an e-conviet, by the
prohibitionist, to work up evidence,
with the sensational development at
tendant upon his charge that J.
It. Wyatt , a lieal attorney employed
by a number of the defendant in the
liquor cases, had attempted to hril
him to leave the state la-fore giving
his testimony, has also embittered the
sentiment of anti-prohibitionists.

A great many republican am U-gin-
niug to ask themselves, "Why should
we elect Governor Cbamlerlain to the
U ii iU-d States Senate?"
And to this echo is answering,
There is an overwhelming majority
of republicans in this state. In the
ordinary election they have often,
nd the Telegram la-lieve wisely,
looked to the men without reference
to the party brand which they wore.
In this way they have disciplined
party and at the same time raised the
standard of the local public service.
liut in the matter of the election of
United States Senator they have pre
sented to them a different, problem.
There they come in touch with the
party of the nation, the party of
Roosevelt, of which they so warmly
approve, and the verdict which they
render the general public must accept
as very largely the judgement of the
voters of Oregon upon . that adminis
tration. Our election occur at an

than two years ago. Lane county
has fifty-three liquor licenses, eleven
of them drug stores. Every home a
saloon, and every locality with equal
saloon privileges is a beautiful dream
of the prohibitionists that does not
work well in practice. The cold truth
of the matter seems to be that under
licensed saloons, , the rural districts
have no places for the distribution of
liquor, while with saloons abolished
every county precinct sets up booze
distribution that is something fierce.
SITUATION IN LINN. , .
The following dispatch from Albany
appeared in the Portland Telegram:
With the approach of the June
election when a vote on the local op
tion question in Linn county will be
once more taken, the hardest fight
yet waged in this county on the liq
uor question is in prospect; even now
has reached the point of personal ani
mosity. The situation in Linn is interesting
-M-esent because of the determined

ting to bring back the conditions
two years ago. Anti-prohibition-
have organized effectively
xmghout the county, with head
quarters in thia city. The labor of e-
of money Washington is spending on
its schools, while Oregon is holding
up and may dufeat an appropriation
of $125,000 for the state university
In his opinion this argument is being
used effectively and it will be to the
advantage of this state if .homeseekers
can be told that Oregon has passed
the appropriation bill.

republican. It likewise knows that
till administration of President lloose
volt has here received enthusiastic
approval. That administration, dis
etiise it as we will, is now on trial
before the country. By the general
masses of the people it has been warm
ly approved; by the corporate and
plutocratic interests, it is bitterly
reviled, and, while little is being done
openly, there is deep down a smoulder
ing fire of resentment that cannot be
extinguished. For the very reason
that the plutocratic forces of the
country hate the president, the masses
of the people admire and approve him.
If under such( circumstances as
these it goes forth that the people of
Oregon in June elect a democrat for
United States Senator, the adminis
tration receives a blow in the house of
its supposed friends that it is con
ceivable may have a serious effect
upon the plans of the friends of the
administration and upon the great
contest in November following. It
must not be forgotten that much
quiet work has been done, in recent
months against the administration.
One may see the effect of it on every
hand in every community the clao-
quers busily engaged in hamstringing
Roosevelt, and msiduously under
mining the platform of principles
which he has been steadily putting
forth in his messages and speeches.
If a well-known and supposedly safe
administration state falls by the way
side in June, the prestige of the ad
ministration severely Buffers, and cn
man who honestly faces the question
can see it otherwise. I
From this standpoint, which is
nuttine the state in the very front
rank of agricultural development. He
is always ready to assist in any public
movement for the betterment of busi
ness and social conditions, and has
nroven himself a loyal and valuable
friend to the educational interests of
the county. No man has done more
for the common schools of Polk
county than Mr. Hawley, and he has
lost no opportunity to aid and en
courage the higher institutions of
learning. He is a native of Polk
county, and a member of one of Ore
gon's best pioneer families. Mr. Haw
ley is a staunch republican, and is a
loyal supporter of the candidacy of
Hon. H. M. Cake for United States
Senator. He will receive the entire
strength of his party in the June
election which means that he will be
chosen for representative by a rousing
majority. Polk County Observer.
