number of qthers spoke briefly pn ^ow
to “plan for a campaign against
licensing saloons in Forest Grove."
Rev. Daniel Staver and Messrs. Mar-
kee and Harris were appointed to se
lect a principal committee to conduct
the campaign, choosing Supt. Clapp,
J. J. Patton, T. H. Adams, Prof.
Robertson and Dr. Bishop.
The remarks of Supt. Clapp, which
follow, indicate the sentiment of the
Now. if we are to have saloons in
Forest Grove, the ordinance that would
permit it after we vote NO is the poor
est that I know. Now, they will pub
lish in this ordinance what we are
to have if we vote to have a saloon;
that is. that the saloon will hqvc no
mark to show that it is a saloon—
there will be no screens, and there
can be no other business with this.
There can be no other door than the
front door where men could pass in
and out without being seen by peopit
on the outside. I guess that there
could be no place for a man to keep
his beer. There can be no beer sold
to a minor, to a woman or to a man in
a drunken condition. In this saloon,
keep in mind, there can be no billiard
table, or amusements of any kind.
(Inquiry from listener: Were chairs
mentioned?). No, I do not think that
chairs were mentioned. It means tha.
it will close at 11 o'clock at. night,
and can't open before 6 in the morn
ing. There can be no other place In
the city where (and here the speak
er repeated a long list of liquors) can
be sold, except in this saloon. The
license is not to be more than $1,000
or less than $500. The man has to
put up a bond of $1,000. The fine for
selling enough of any one kind of
liquor that would make a person
drunk, $10. A man that Is found on
the street drunk is to be locked in
Now, that is the ordinance that the
people will want If they are to have a
saloon. There are two or three things
that I would like to say. In the first
place It indicates only what the sa
loon, the thing that we are to vote on,
is, whether we will have saloons in
Forest Grove or not. The counc...
gave me to understand that if the
people of this city wanted a saloon,
then they would license a saloc- i
There is not a child of a drunkoa
father who would not vote against it.
But they are all barred out; the ma
jority, of course, will rule, but the
only people that can vote on this are
To me it seems perfectly fair, and
I am satisfied that if we do not get
in and rustle, we will get voted down.
Two men stopped me on the street
and said that they were not in favor
of a saloon, but if we are compelled
to have this thing go on. why, let's
have a little revenue. It would be
just as hard to stop these blind pigs
after we get a saloon as it is now.
And in the meantime this saloon will
be grinding out drunkards. (Now he
tells a story.)
A saloon means not only a blind
place, but It means that they will
try to put temptation in a man's steps.
All men who are law-abiding citizens
want to protect the women. That is
the way that all these large cities
have prohibition. If prohibition can
be had in a large city, then we can
have It here. It seems to me tonight
that we are going to have a great
fight, and If v e are defeated we will
go down with our colors flying. I
think we ought to have a fine cam
paign for the next two weeks. I
would not at all be surprised but that
we get Mr. Stone to speak to us.
When I was In Chicago It was my bus
iness to visit 40 saloons every Sunday
to lulng men to God. But still I do
not think that It Is good to put a
good many people in the water to
catch one fish.

Dr. V. L. Dimmlck, a graduate of the North Pacific Dental College, em
ploys all the very latest devices for dental work. The expert dentist of to
day Is not the torturer his old-time predecessor was. Painless dentlBtry is a
fact if you patronize a competent operator.
The graduate dentist, too, far excels In mechanical skill the tooth-puller
who has gained all his knowledge from his forceps. Many a tooth can be
saved If properly treated In time. And If your teeth must come out, they
can bo replaced with others so perfect, easy-fitting and convenient that only
an expert can tell the artificial from the natural, as a gold crown may do
or bridge work so no plate will be needed.
Decayed teeth are unhealthy, as wel as making offensive breath, while
a missing tooth Injures your appearance. Then, too, with sound teeth you
can masticate your food and preserve your health. These are not luxuries;
all are within your reach.
These prices are right and you will be treated right. See how much
good we can do you for a little money:
