Albany democrat. (Albany, Or.) 1900-1912, July 21, 1911, Page 4, Image 4

Below is the OCR text representation for this newspapers page. It is also available as plain text as well as XML.

The following from an Indiana pa
per, sent the Democrat by a friend,
who is in the midst of a big fight to
have the infamous saloon business
again foisted upon his city, contains
several little points people need to
keep before them even in established
dry towns:
Every one knows that when saloons
were licensed, the law was shamefully
and persistently violated. Regulation
did not regulate then and never will.
One need but look into conditions
now in the saloon towns to prove
this heavily in debt, taxes high, im
morality, vice, and drunkenness, most
common, while the law is shamefully
and openly violated every day. Is
that regulation? If regulation regu
lates, why do our government reports
show that in only 154 saloon cities of
this country an army of almost half a
million was arrested for drunkenness
alone in just twelve months? Nor
arc scarcely more than half the drunks
arrested either in these cities. Nearly
a quarter of a million more were ar
rested for disturbing the peace in
these same cities, a majority of which
were the results of liquor. Nor Ao-.s
this take into account the allied evils
growing out of the licensed saloon
Head the report of the Chicago Vice
Commission, as it is called, as to the
relation of the saloon to open vice and
gross immorality in that so-called,
regulation, saloon city. And this
commission, appointed by the mayor,
reported that conditions were even
worse in some other saloon cities.
Then, docs regulation regulate? No
such conditions can be found in dry
Not "dry" men, but the very same
men who violated the law when sa
loons were licensed. They then dog
gedly and shamefully violated the law,
and have since sought to defy the will
of the people, your courts, your laws,
and your government. They have vio
lated the law some since these towns
went "dry" but much more when they
ran their saloons. kx-rrcsident
Roosevelt called such people undcslr-
able citizens. The saloon question
would scarcely come up in a "dry
town, but for this one reason "They
have violated the law." This is the
chief reason why the brewers have
urged these men to violate the law.
But do you favor the surrender of
your town to such lawless persons?
That is just what it means to vote
"wet." These violations of the law
only prove how utterly lawless the
whole liquor business really is, and
always lias been. Is it sensible to
license stealing or gambling because
they arc hard to stamp out?
The Democrat appreciates a new
rule of the S. P. Co. doing away with
passes, each parly paving bis way in
cash, without fear or favor, a business
proposition. Here is the announce
ment :
"Commencing July 1, 1911, the rail
road companies will discontinue the
plan that has prevailed in the past of
Keeping 'open accounts with publish
ers. In the future all advertising by
these companies will he paid for in
cash monthly, instead of making book
entries of same as heretofore, and af
fecting actual or periodical scttle-
ments, ,
"As it is important that all old ac
counts be settled before inaugurating
the new plan, publishers arc urged to
render bills at once.
"Arrangements for the space we
shall require in the future will be
made soon through our local agents,
or directly with publishers at poims
where we have no agent.
"We take this occasion to explain
that this departure from an old and
established custom is found necessary
because of complications resulting
from our efforts to observe the law.
The act to regulate commerce, famil
iarly known as the interstate com
merce law, prohibits the exchange 'of
interstate transportation for advertis
ing; nnd the laws of Oregon, Wash
ington and California, though per
mitting such exchange within the re
spective states, require that it must be
exact nnd at regular rates on a basis
fixed by cash, nnd that the records
must prove a hona fide settlement.
"We have given the old method a
thorough test under these difficult
conditions, and have demonstrated
that it is impracticable. Therefore we
have concluded that it will be more
agreeable nnd satisfactory to all con
cerned to pay cash for our advertis
ing, nnd give publishers the privilege
of paying for their transportation in
like manner, ns though no advertis
ing were involved."
A convention of the unemployed
will be held in Washington next Sep
tember, when delegates will attend
from far and near, if they can get
there, and the unemployed can gener
ally travel if they make up their
minds. It is a great problem, just
now particularly, when there are a
good many out of jobs: but there are
always men out of work and always
will be. Some are not working he
cause of their shiitlcssuess, some be
cause of their character, some he
cause tit the drink habit and their uu'ility. i'lid others from d'M'cvent
causes, sonic for yo-od reasons. The
question is one that can h::nllv be

By William Steward Gordon
With feverish haste and wild desire
Earth's famished rabble rushes on
Like deer before a forest fire
By summer's torrid tempest blown.
In vain they strive to quench their:
At Pleasure's false and futile bowl,
As if the cup that sin had cursed
Could satisfy a human soul.
But the deer, by Nature's guiding
Soon finds some crystal mountain
And so for all earth's famished band
The stream of Life flows on forever.
Tis sweeter than Abana's brink,
Or David's well at Bethlehem,
Then come, O thirsty soul, and drink,
And wear a fadeless diadem.
Raging forest fires have caused the
destruction of a great deal of prop-
crty the past week, but what is worse,
the loss of many lives, several bun-,
dred. People had put some trust in
their fellow men, hail taken up homes
in the edge of the forests and had
been swept out through the careless-
ness of others. Nearly every forest
lire is the result of gross carelessness,
Men having a spark of decency should
have some thought for others. ,
In politics the sensation of the week
was the attack of Lafallet on Cana-1
dian reeinrocitv. and unon President
Taft, whom he charged with not hav-
ing kept his promises, favoring aiu-
richism, adding betrayal to betrayal.
Rcckerfeller's old pastor, named .
Akcd, down in San Francisco, told
the people there that the west is he
only part of the country where the
people respond to spiritual suggestion,
if he had any reference to San Fran
cisco he is duller than a hoe. With a
population of nearly half a million
there arc only about ijaiuu cnurcn
members, with hardly enough spirit

Albany's second Chautauqua this
week has been a very interesting af

thing for the city, n booster for the

feet, one of the best on the coast. At

Perhaps no author has ever lived
who produced characters so close to
the people as UK-kens. Those who
have read his works
marvel at his
genius in tk-lnteattng
the common
characters of everyday life, from
Pavid Coppo'lKld. his e.reatcst crea
tion, to an Weller, the oddest of
them all. There were saintly charac
ters lull of loe, mean ones, as Mack
is sin. and all kinds between. They
are interesting to read about, but
greater to see delineated by a nun
who has made a study of them and
pollen to the bottom of the author's
meaning. Albany is fortunate this
week in having such n man here, ver
satile, lric,!it, an actor of striking abil
ity as he impersonates the people we
know so well.

big Chautauqua crowd were given
genuine 4th of Jnly treat in Bnme fire
works, sent off with a snap, making a
display that was immensely appreciated,
a fine place for fireworks.

decidedly superior, altogether a program
