That Prohibition Letter
Wj publish a letter in another
Wmmn from a correspondent,
letting forth his views on the
iprchibition law, which came into
'force the first of the year. Of
course, we all realize that it is
'hard to enact a prohibition law
'that would give universal satis
faction. There are too many pro
hibitionistSi who like their
"bracer" once in a while, and
"ome pretty regular, and the
trouble is, the courts have de
tided that there is a certain ina
lienable rig.it that v, iil not permit
a law from p'.acing a citizen on a
full-fledged water wagon against
his will. So the prohibitiotiists,
"who drafted this1 law, concluded
"that it was all right for a person
1o purchase two quarts of
Tvhiskey or 21 cjuarts of beer at
iny one tirrte, and not to exceed
lhat amount in any month'.
Where a tfan keeps this is his
wn business; sff ii isn't kept in a
public place; and if lie has amis
hievou8 chiM1, vho noses out the
liquor and helps himself to it,
hat's the parent's business.
That the minor, who taps the
fcsttle, contrary to the parent's
wish, should be punished as the
parent may see fit goen without
saying. The law can't enter a
man's home and compel him to
rear his children under prescribed
rules, or dictate to him how he
shall govern his family. The idea
that the law has brought the bar
into the home is rather far
fetched. The chances are that
those who will keep liquor in his
own home now have been doing
so for years. In the mind of the
editor the average parent feels
better qualified to luok after his
own child and keep temptatior
away from him than any othei
Absolute prohibition is an im

the prohibitionist from taking
a drink when he wants it, for
you must give that inaliable right
a little free space to bump around
as it is the desire of all geod citi

that if society could substitute
the proper place for the saloon, h
long step would be taken towards
making prohibition a permanent

No Reason to Oat Excited
Our editorial in the last issue
on the new order of things seems
to have created some comment
among the church people. It was
far from our intention of giving
any opinion upon prohibition, but
to call attention to a moral phaze j
of the question that we believe
prohibitionists ought to give
some thought to. There is such
a thing as being out of sympathy
with worldly things, and to hold
so rigidly to a mdral ques'tibn as
to make it obnoxious. This old
world of ours will never be re
formed by unsympathizing re
formers. We should lay aside our
pious coats lorttf enough to et in
touch with people, who trot along
by our side every day.
This prohibition question has
been uppermost in the minds of
the people .of every state for
years and every phaze of it has
been argued out. The majority
of the people of Oregon have de
clared themselves in favor of
prohibition, and- H is our rtesire
Some thin it was a mistake t
cut out of the budget the amount
of $1500 for enforcement of the
prohibition law. There have
been several things happen with
in the past f jw months to lead
as ta believe that the amount
asked for will not be needed.
Our reasons for not getting ex
cited over the $1500 cut is thai
we think there will be less crim
committed under prohibition
properly enforced than under thi
To our knowledge over-indulgence
in intoxicants has led to er

look like two cents in comparison.
