It would seem that it requires
mure evidence to convict a liquor
dealer than an ordinary citizen.
We have heard of cases where the
evidence of one witness has been
enough to convict, but we have not,
as yet, been able to ascertain how
many witnesses, aside from detec
tives, the law requires to offer suf
ficient testimony to convict those
dealers who are in open violation to
our laws, making men drunk. And
yet, these law-breakers would have
us think that they are, of all men,
the most desirable citizens and the
most zealous in keeping the "Pure
Food Law" (as applied to liquor).
The malls are flooded with letters,
price lists and even premium offers
to Individuals soliciting holiday
trade in the accursed drink. How
many homes, think ye, would be
made happier. How many hearts
would be made lighter for the offer
made by these liquor dealers!
The day Is' coming when this corse
will be no more and this fair coun
try shall indeed be white. In the
meantime let the temperance forces
march steadily forward, trusting tn
God, who is the friend and guide,
leading in thla gigantic struggle
against wrong.
The Will of the Sovereign.
The anti-liquor laws in modern
democracy, are not edicts imposed
upon the people, as the saloon men
would be glad to have the people be
lieve; they are laws adopted by the
people themselves, and depend upon
the people for their execution. This
is especially true in regard t o the
local option law in our own state of
Oregon. By the "Initiative" the
citizens expressed their will, and of
fered to the people of the cities, pre
cincts, and counties a local option
law. This they did by a great ma
And again, when an attempt was
made this last year to emasculate
that law by cutting out from Its be-
nlflcent action the cities of our state
the people, by a very much larger
majority, repudiated that attempt.
By this action the people served
notice on the liquor fraternity that
they should keep their hands off the
local option law. That enactment
was by the will of the sovereign peo
ple of the state of Oregon, and must
stand. American Issue.
The boldness of these liquor men
Is Incomprehensible. One of the
class accosted a farmer the other day
day with "Do you want to do some
hauling?" This being a slack sea
son tn farm work, the farmer
thought he might take the Job, but
upon Inquiry found that the hauling
consisted of not much at a time but
a little off and on all winter or lon
ger well. In fact, supplies for the
saloon at Savage Rapids. And these
supplies are not to come from Med-
ford, but from Grants Pass. Can it
be possible that Medford liquor men
have their agents in our city?
Surely the men of Grants Pass are
loyal to the laws of our state (?).
