Cowdry, superintendent of Mothers'
meetings, was introduced and an
nounced the numbers of her carefully
prepared program and each was a
success. Especial mention is due
the piano solos by Miss Florence La
mar and Miss Dove Williams. They
afforded pleasure to all present. Also
worthy of praise were the papers
written by Mrs. Curtis on "The Ideal
Mother in the Homo" and by Mrs.
Caldwell on "The Ideal Mother in
Society." Other ladies of the onion
assisted by reading and staging. The
next program meeting will be held iu
A. O. U. W. ball. April 20. Mrs.
Lulu Caldwell, superintendent of
Christian Citizeubhip department will
have charge of the program and we
can expect a good one. You are in-,
vited to attend Especial invitation

ville anions. Mrs. Henkle, superin
tendent of Y branch of W. O. T. U.,
invited the ladies present to attend
the regular monthly meeting of O. P.
Y. P. C. T. U. at Baptist church
that evening. Mrs. Caldwell,. Mrs.
Hood, Mrs. Savage, Mrs. Hildreth
aud Mrs. Calvert were present and
can speiik iu highest terms of the
meeting. The president. Miss Kittle
Loughrtdge, was in the chair. The
program was on the subject of "Christ
Ian Citizenship" and under the
management of Roy Hackett as leader,
the program was good. It is soul-in
spiring to atteud ruch a young peoples
sqciety. All present were very much
inter sted iu Rev. Travis' instructions
aud suggetiouB along important lines
aud the helpful advioe given by Rev.
Hughes. Success awaits those "who
endure to the- end." The W. C. X

Amid excitiug scenes the Ohio sen
ate passed on April 3, the Aiken bill
to iucrease rtlie state saloon tax from
$350 to 11000, the flnal vote being
at first a tie, or 18 to 18. Oue man,
Beatty, immediately changed his vote
from the negutive to the affirmative,
whereupon cheers resoundtd through
the capitol from the temperauce peo
ple. Afterward several sena'ors
changed their votes. The bill had
already passed the house. Brewers
say that it will drive half the sa-
loons in the state out of business, or
With but one dissenting vote the
Medford council at t'teir session on
Tuesday of last week passed an ordi
nance to close the eight saloons of that
town on Sandaya. This will prove
a decided betterment to the morals of
that town aud it is the first time In
the history of Motif or i that Sunday
closing has been enforced. Ashland
enforces the Sunday closing on their
five saloous, but Grants Pass with
12 saloons, Jacksonville with four,
Gold Hill with three and Kerby with
two saloous are the only towns of auy
importance in Rogne River Valley
that allows liquor to be sold on the
Sabbath. The leisure hours of Sun
day In towns where saloons are open
on that day are the danger times to
many, who would otherwise lead up
right livrs. They go into the saloons
first for goodfellowship and the social
glass leads to more drintcs and before
the man is aware of it his money is
gone and with a bad headache, a bout
stomach and an empty pocket book be
regius the week with a "blue" Mon
day, aud is not folly capable of at
tending to his work before Tuesday.
The Young Peoples' Christian Tem
perauce Union held their regular
monthly meeting, Friday evening,
April 6th, at the Baptist church.
After the business session, as osual, a
very interesting program was present
ed, with Roy Hackett, the superin
tendent of the Christian Citizenship
Department, in charge. A very in
teresting talk waa eiven by Rev.
Travis on the "Temperance Work
That is being done on the Local Op
tion Question." Be brought out
many things that are being done,
that few people are aware of and seem
to pay so little attention to, when it
is of vital interest to all.
The number that teemed to be of
special interest and held tbe most
direct attention of the evenlog was
the Impromptu- debate ' on "Woman
Suffrage as on Aid to Good Citizen
ship." The affirmative beiug upheld
by Mrs. Calvert aud Frit Dean ; the
negative by Mrs. Savage aud Birdseye.
It was a case of no decision rendered,
the chairman deeming this best and
least likely to cauHe any dissension,
but as th argument was presented
the negative seemed to have decidedly
the best of it.
The closing talk, given by Rev.
hughes on." Individual Respoutibility
iu the Matter of Qood, Citizenship,"
presented to us the many ways
through which we are responsible for
the government and etaud:ng of the
State and community in which we live.

He. s Made a Good Record.
Hon. A. M. Crawford, who is a
caudidate for a second nomination by
the republican party for Attorney
General, asks the voters of the party
to judge him as to his fitness by his
record during his first term. He hat
endeavored to keep the state out of
litigation by giviug -careful attention
to its affairs and advising the varioas
state officers, boards and commissions
on all questions, aud his opinions have
been very generally accepted and ant
ed upon both by publio officers and
othets transacting business with them.
This has obviated the uncertainty and
expense of having to try publio ques
tions in the courts.
A few qnestious have arisen which
involved tbe publio interests to such
an extent, and finding it impossible to
protect them iu auy other way, they
have been carried into the courts.
Notable among these is the state's in
terest in the Oregon City Canal and
locks. In 1870 the legislature appro
priated (200,000 to assist in building
the caual and locks upon the condition L
that 10 per cent of the net prooeeds of
Buch canal and locks should be paid
to the common school fund. The
$200,000 was accepted "by the corpora
tion building the canal and locks but
the 10 per cent of .net proceeds has
never been paid except for the first
year the locks were operated, in 1873.
The corporation which is the present
owuirofthe interest of the original
company, refuses to reoognize the in
terest ot the state aud feeling that the
common school fund should not suffer
the loss of hnudreds of thousands of
dollars in this way, Mr. Crawford hat
begun a suit to comel an accounting
for and payment of the 10 per cent
due the school fund. He hopes to
prosecute the suit to successful
ending, aud in the event of success,
will have rendered a valuable servioe
to his state, which will be a source of
great satisfaction to him.
His efforts in 'securing title to the
Celito Canal right-of-way and in de
fendiug the Oregon City FiBh-way
and tbe rights of the tettlert of Lake
County in their efforts to secure title
to their homes against the oorporate
greed which wishes them for a larger
stcck much, all recommend him ai
deserving of coutinuanoe in the office
of Attorney General for a second
One of his most note worthy achieve
ments is in saving to the school fund
the interest which was formerly paid
to school land speculators on payment
of the purchuse price of lands to
which tne state's title failed. It is
his opiuiou that a just construction of
the law does not award interest in
canes where the purchaser ban had or
could have had possesion of the land,
aud this construction of the law wat
adopted by the State Land Board upon
his presenting it early in his term,
thereby saving, since qit opinion was
rendered thereon, over (20 000, and
resulted in the establishment of a role
for the government of future trans
actions of that nature.
Mr. Crawford was born and edu
cated in the state of New York and
came Oregon in 18S0, and ojiened a
law office at Marsh field, Coot county,
Oregon, aud bas ever tlnce been en
gaged in the active practice of the
lw in thit state. He believes it to
be the duty of an Attorney General to
zealously guard the interests of the
people and lias conducted the office
upon that principle. He requests a
renomination at the primaries April

and women. Invaluable to good
business men and necessary to bonne

Lndidate for Republican Nomi
nation as State Treasurer.
Judge Thoa. F. Ryan, of Or. ion
Born in Rhode Island 4(1 years ago,
Jndge Ryan came to Oregon in hit
21st year and soon became recognized
throughout the state as an active tire
less worker in the promotion of all
matters pertaining to tbe publio in

recorder, water commissioner, chief
engineer, school director and school
clerk of Oregon City and as county
jndge of Claokamas county, all pf
which offices he hat filled with credit

In an interview Judge Ryan says:
"I beileve that mv record as a nnblio
officer of my oity and coonty goes to
Srove that II I am elected that every
uty required of the state treasurer
will be performed in an efficient aud
economical manner. I believe that
interest on state funds Bhould belong
to the state and thi t the ttate treasur
er should be prohibited from speculat
ing witn tne runos 01 tne ttate, either
for gain for self or in tbe interests of
banks or other monied institutions.
receiving for his servioes the salary
allowed him by law ; being neither a
president, cashier or stockholder in
any bank, I shall use my best efforts
to oonduct tne office in strict confor
mity with the lawt of the state, and
not discriminate in the iuterests of
any institution or person."
Mr. Ryan's record as indne of
Clacktnas county troves him to be a
man of exoeptionabls business qualifi
cations as he has paid off a county
indebtedness of over f 200,000, at the
same time constructed iimnv miles of
improved roads and eaoh year decreas
