Dr. V. L. Dimmick, 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 dentistry is a
fa rt 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
ean be 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
o r 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
ean 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

Rev, J. F. Ghormley, pastor of the
Portland Christian church, who made
the principal address at the campus
an„i-litc-nse meeting Tuesday night, is
a well »crown advocate of the Prohi
bition party, and very consistently
took the same stand for the local
election that he does in nattoiial nf
fairs. However, the speaker knew
nothing of local conditions, and could
give no practical or intelligent ad
vice. For that reason space is not
given his excellent oration, but the
remarks of Supt Clapp, who
know, or ought to know, the real situa
tion, are here given:
“ Dear Friends:— I thought that the
open air would be better for the ser
vice tonight than the hall. When we
talk about the government, we are
the government. When we talk about
the city, we are the city. When we
talk about a brave army, we mean that
the soldiers of the army are brave.
Now a question has been before us for
a good many years, and now it is go
ing to be carried to the polls. Thero
are always two tickets in the field,
sometimes they are caled the wet
ticket and the dry ticket, and some
times they are for or against electric
lights, or for them. Whenever we
have a serious question, we are accus
tomed to call a special election and
vote on it. When this city was found
ed. it was founded around the college.
All this land was in donation claims,
and the town was founded around the
college. The campus is composed of
about 29 acres of land. Besides this,
a large amount of land was given to
the college. This was a little more
than 50 years ago. Now the man who
founded that town conceived the Idea
that a college town would be better
if it had no saloons. They put into
every deed a clause, so arranged that
if liquor should be sold on these prem-
ises, the property should revert to the
college. For a great many years the
people understood the title with which
they obtained their land, that If liquor
should be sold upon it they should
lose it. In the course of time the
people conceived the Idea that
would be better if a place should be
established where liquor could be sold
by the glass. This question has beeD
agitating the people for about
years. Now-, any election in which
we may express our opinions on this
subject, has nothing whatever to do
with the legal status of the land. The
college does not lose its title to the
land if the terms of the deed should
not be kept.
“ There are a good many reasons
why people think It would be bettei
for this town to have a saloon. And
the thought is. that ln this way the
illegal sale of liquor could be stopped
and the marshal could enforce the
law against the illegal sale of liquor.
First, there are the people who use
the liquor themselves; it is a conven
ience to them to go and buy a glass
and go home. Then there Is another
class oi people who favor the saloon
because they think that there would
be no more liquor, and that the town
had just as well have some revenue
from the liquor sold. Now, there are
people who say that there will be no
more liquor sold after we have a
saloon than there Is now, and for that
reason they are Inclined to vote for
the saloon. There will be plenty of
time to air our views before the elec
tion. There are other reasons why
people favor the saloon, ‘liquor always
has been and always will be sold.’
Now. I am going to say two things
more: If the weather is good we will
bold these meetings In the open air.
We want anyone who wants to, to say
what he thinks on this qquestlon, on
either side of the question. If you
will notify us beforehand, so that we
can make arrangements for It, we will
give the other side half of the time.
If they want It. We only want half of
