The Spread of Temperance.
The first prohibitory law was
that of Maine, 1851. In 1870
persons living under prohibition
numbered about 4,000,000. In
1908 iersons living under abso
lute prohibition, of state, city,
town or country, foot up 33,000,
000. There are six "dry" states
Alabama, Georgia, Kansas,
Maine, Oklahoma and North Da
kota. Kentucky has 97 "dry"
counties out of 119; North Caro
lina has "dried 99 per cent of
her territory; South Carolina, 50
ler cent; Tennessee has but
three places where drink can be
sold, Massachusetts is about 50
per cent "dry," while C2 per
cent of the people of New Hamp
shire are under prohibition. In
Maryland, Virginia. Mississippi
and Delaware the fight for pro
hibition is being made in earn
est. It Must Be Up In the Air.
The railroad commission has
set March G for the hearing of
the application of the Oregon
Electric company for a suspen
sion of the section of the inter
state commerce law making a
railway company liable to pun
ishment for failing to furnish
cars to haul freight when re
quested to do so. The company
makes this request, stating that
for at least thirty days it will
not have sufficient cars to handle
the freight that will be offered.
The Oregon Electric company
has filed its preliminary report
with the commission, stating that
it has fifty miles of road in use
between Portland and Salem,
and twenty miles of track com

The Cigarette Evil.
"The Young Man and the Cig
arette" furnished a fruitful
theme on which Rev. Dr. Forest
E. Dager of St Paul's Reformed
Episcopal church spoke recently
to an audience in Association
hall, Germantown, Philadelphia.
Taking as his text St Paul's
statement in his first epistle to
the Corinthians, "I keep my
body under," he said, in part
"From an authoritative source
it has been learned that longevi
ty or life has been increasing
slowly, but human life is being
crippled and shortened in many
cases by cigarette smoking. The
subject touches the moral and
civic issues of the day, and is
demanding keen attention.
'Think of these stupendous
figures. In 1900 there were
made in the United States 3.8G4,-
534,413 registered cigarettes, an
increase of 315,000.000 over 1905.
Statistics also show that every
day in the United States 1200
boys begin the cigarette habit.
There are young men, no doubt,
listening to me now who began
the habit last year, others who
will begin next year. The habit
begins early and is certainly
most injurious in many ways to
the user of the cigarette. It be
comes a disease.
One of the Sundav school
classes in my church, composed
of young boys, was nicked out
oi a hay loft, where the lads
were smoking ciirarettes and
gambling;. A woman teacher
found them there, not a nolioo
officer. He could not find them
These boys have discontinued
the habit and are becoming
stronger and better, morally, re-
lgiously and socially.
"We have no law that touches
the case. The boy secures the
vile cigarettes and, seeking of
tentimes some secluded place,
against the commands of his
parents, smokes to his heart's
content. Our chief executive,
the mayor, seems to have no
time to execute laws; he seems
rather to be engaged in framing
legislation for our municipal gov
ernment. If we only had some
kind of law to prevent the boy
from smoking, which runs fre
quently to committing suicide,
we could check his moral rotten
"I might also state that the
increase of cigarette smoking is
more marked among girls than
boys, this being particularly ob
served in cafes, ssloons and halls.
I'm told that in one of your local
high-toned institutions the corri
dors are filled nightly with the
smoke of cigarettes in the mouths
of women. I have a yonng man
in my church who could not par
ticipate in our gymnasium work
simply because his heart has
been affected by cigarette smok
ing. "The influence upon the mind
of the boy or girl is very injur
ious. Leading high school teach
ers of the country are unani
mous in stating that the cigar
ette habit has decreased the
scholarship of students fully 10
"Throw away your Turkish
Trophies, Egyptian Moguls or
whatever name you give the cig
arettes. The very name sug
gests that the devil has a hand
in them, which, if you use them,
will be your downfall. You will
lack manliness, mentality, relia
bility, truthfullness. You are
cutting off three-fourths of your
opportunity of the future by
smoking cigarettes. Insurance
companies, railroad corporations
and large industries will not em
ploy you if addicted to the habit
If you want credit with God and
man eschew the cigarette."

soft drinks, served at the foun

The largest crowd that ever

the Chicago Union Stock Yards
received SI, 501 cattle, 1.303
calves, 87,7K' hogs, 20, 900 sheep,
and &M horses, or a total of 150,
357 animals in 2,9."3 cars, break

On the receipts, there were
sold and shipjxd alive, mainly to
Eastern slaughtering points and
for export. 10,003 cattle. 28
calves, 21,138 hogs. 0,409 sheep,
and 109 horses, or a total of 37,

loads shipped and total number
of animals shipped.
The grand total handled by the
railroads and the Union Stock
Yard and Transit Co. on that
day was 188,104 animals and
3,720 cars, which is equal to a
solid train over 28 miles long, or
if ranged in single file would
make a solid procession of ani
mals over 200 miles long and re
quire ten days to pass a given
point marching constantly at the
rate of 20 miles per day. This is
something never before equaled,
moreover, all were quickly and
Monday's enormous receipts
were promptly absorbed at only
a slight reduction from the prices
of the previous week, practically
all being sold on day of arrival.
Packers got upward of 51,000
hotfs. shippers bought close to
25,000, and the remainder were
mixed hogs mostly sold to sim

4,000 were carried over by ship

most everything being sold.

FOR OREGON NATIONAL GUARD
Opening of Interurban Electric Line
Celebrated Oregon's Work in
Portland, February 21th, 1908.
The Oregon National Guard is
very active in its efforts to ob
tain a suitable and permanent
rifle range near this city. Be
sides being immediately availa
ble for the use of six companies,
including those stationed at Van
couver, Wash., the range would
attract any United States cruis
ers and other naval vessels to
this port, since this practice is
required of the Navy as well.
The matter has been taken up
with the United States War De
partment and strongest possible
endorsement has gone forward
from the Portland Commercial
Club and other organizations of
In celebrating the opening of
the new electric interurban line
between Portland and Salem on
February 18th, the latter city
entertained numerous delega
tions from the various cities of
the Willamette valley. Over a
hundred business men went from
Portland in two special cars.
Great enthusiasm was aroused
by the speeches of both visitors
and Salem men, and all united
in emphasizing the necessity for
wide-awake, aggressive adverus -

Washington's Birthday had
twice its usual interest and sig
nificance in Portland this year on
account of this being also the
city's first observance of "Rose
Planting Day." Archbishop
Christie participated in the exer
cises in connection with planting
the thousands of roses w hieh
were borne to the parks by the
school children. Vigorous two
year old bushes were set out,
which will bloom generously by
the first of June, for the Rose
Festival. A distinctive feature
of the grand parade planned for
the Festival will be the entry of
floats from different cities in the
state several have already de
signed floats illustrating some
particular product of their sec

tation will doubtless attract many
visitors to these communities.
A branch of the work of the
Portland Commercial Club which
many people know nothing about
is the maintenance of an Oregon
Information Bureau in Ios An

lully successful in its ellorts to
so interest Laulornian tourists
that they may return to their
Eastern homes by way of Ore

tributed from several of the most
centrally-located offices in Los
Angeles, and it is eagerly taken.
