La Follette's Indictment.
The following i n d i c t in c n t
against the trust record of Theo
dore Uoosevelt was filed by Sen
ator Uobert M. I -a Toilette in the
United Stales senate yesterday:
"On the day that Theodore
Roosevelt was made president of
the United States there were 149
trusts and combinations in the
United States. When he turned
this government over to William
Howard Taft there were 10,020
plants in combination. When he
became president the trusts had
an aggregate capitalization of
three billion dollars and when lie
left the presidency they had an
aggregate capitalization of thirty
one billion dollars and more than
70 per cent of it was water.
"1 don't believe that the man
who was president at the time of
all times in the history of the
Sherman anti-trust law when it
could have been made potential in
deterring trust organization 1
do not think that I lie man wdio
was president then is the man to
find the way out now."
Banking Reform.
The democratic national con
vention, in session at lialtimore,
adopted the following plank on
the monetary tpiestion :
"We oppose the so-called Aid
rich bill or the establishment of a
central bank, and we believe the
people of the country will be
largely freed from panics and cou
scucnt unemployment and bus
iness depression by such a syste
matic revision of our banking
laws as will render temporary re
lief in localities where such re
lief is needed, with protection
from control or domiuio'n by what
is known as lite money trust.
"Hanks exist for the accommo
dation of the public and not for
the control of business. All leg
islation on the subject of banking
and currency should have for its
purpose the securing of these ac
commodaticis on terms of abso
lute security to the public and of
complete protection from the mis
use of the power that wealth gives
to those who possess it.
"We condemn the present
methods of depositing govern
ment funds in a few favored
banks, largely situated in or con
trolled by Wall st reel, in return
for political favors, and we pledge
our party to provide by law for
their deposit by competitive liid
dhig in the banking institutions
of the country, national and state,
without discrimination as to lo
cality upon approved securities
and subject to call by -the govern
ment." The adoption of the above
plank by the democratic national
convention indicates that the par
ly is both sa'iie and progressive.
The Aldriclt plan is condemned
in no uncertain terms and the ad
ministration pledged to a rational
program of banking reform.
The Wilson Campaign Fund.
It lakes money to finance a
great national campaign. Litera
ture must be printed, siamps must
be purchased, a large corps of
stenographers must be employed,
speakers expenses must be paid
and a hundred and one other bills
must be met, if the Democratic
national campaign is to be carried
(.Ml successfully.
Woodrow Wilson has refused
to accept contributions from
trusts or corporations. He will

the campaign, the committee has

Are yoti willing to contrihnte
a small sum to the campaign. If
yon are, send your money order
or check to the Democrat and the
receipt of the same will he
acknowledged tliroiiLdi the Co
minis of this paper the following
Governor West is Right.
In our opinion Governor West
was entirely justified in dema'.id
ing the resignation of the mayor
of Redmond.
The mayor had been duly elect
eil to the highest office in the gift
of the municipality and had taken
an oath to enforce of the laws of
the state and city from whom
received Ins ollicial title. He not
only failed to enforce the state aiK
municipal statutes but was him
self convicted of gambling.
1 lad Governor West pursued
any other course, he would have
laid himself open to the charge of
being a consummate coward.
The Journal's Prosperity.
Without missing an issue and
with no perceptible change in the
appearance of the paper, the en
tire plant and equipment of the
I ortland Daily Journal has been
moved to the handsome twelve-
story building which has just
been completed at the corner of
Yamhill and Seventh streets.
The erection of a $350,000.00
building, not only indicates that
the lotirnal is in a prosperous
condition but rellects credit upon
the business men of rorlkvud, for
without their support, the new
building would have been an im
possibility, and the Journal could
hardly have attained the reputa
tion of being one of the best news
papers west of the Rocky moun
tains. o
Haunted by Harriman's Ghost.
If the sworn testimony of form
Governor Odcll of New York-
is to he believed, the National
Progressive party has indeed been
unfortunate in the selection of its
standard bearer for the initial
campaign of the new pftrty.
According to the testimony of
this well known figure in New
York state politics, the late K. II.
Ilarriman was summoned to the
W hile Mouse by Colonel Roose
velt for the express purpose of
discussing ways and means of
raising a "slush fund" (or the
Roosevelt campaign, and for the
further purpose of discussing the
general political situation. At
this meeting, according to the
former New York state governor.
Ilarriman agreed to raise a large
sum of money for the republican
campaign and afterward did raise
the sum of $MO,000.00.
Now in all candor, how can
Colonel Roosevelt, the self anoint
ed king of the so-called progres
sive movement, explain the Ilar
riman conference and the subse
quent contribution of Ilarriman
and his friends- to the Roosevelt
campaign ?
I i we are to have a progressive
party let it be a genuine progres
sive organisation with a genuine
and iviiiinpeachable progressive
candidate. Let it not be said of the
candidate of the newborn party
that he failed to enforce the pro
visions of the Sherman Anti
Trust law; let it 'not be said of
him that he is the most consum
mate "straddler" on the tarilT
question in the history of Ameri
can politics; let it not be said of
him that he held star-chamber
sessions with a exeat railroad

a Bear Preacher Accidently j
Shot While Hunting.
After a three weeks' hunting trip in
the mountains of Douglas county, Dr.
II. A. Leininger returned this morn
ing well pleased with the result of his
summer vacation.
The doctor left Albany August
tiiird together with a party of six
business and professional men from
Oregon City, and has ben in pur
suit of big game in the mountains
south of Linn county. The doctor
killed a brown bear, which he treed,
and two line bucks. The party had
killed 14 bucks up to the time he re
turned home. The Oregon City men
will remain a few days longer and
fully expect to make a record killing
before they return.
On Monday a hunter was acci
dently shot by his companion who
mistook him for a deer, says Dr.
Leininger. The injured man was a
preacher who was enjoying a few

August 17, 1912
Editor Dmoerat:
Is beer a medicine? Is it in any
way useful medicinally? Still some
think so. Two generations ago per
haps everybody thought so. Thirty
or forty years ago a few scientific in
vestigators learned the true nature of
alcohol. Since that time real science
has spoken a final word as to the ef
fects of the use of beer, brandy, wine,
and other alcoholic drinks, whether
as beverages or as medicine. All
persons taught in American schools
know their disastrous effects on the
human system. Every athlete knows
that he must not touch any of them
wiien lie wants to be at his best.
Every Arctic explorer knows that the
old view of their use is wrontr. and
that his men must drink none of them.
Great railroad systems have found it
to be necessary to forbid all drink
ing, either on or off duty, and have
discharged men on the testimony of
a pnotograpli showing a man with a
single glass at a bar. Even the Em
peror of Germany recognizes the
harmfulncss of beer drinking, and in
a public address has advised his naval
recruits to join the Good Templars
ami inner aiisiinencc organizations.
(I will gladly procure for anyone wdio
wishes it a copy of this speech either
in German or translated.) These are
facts that leave no excuse for the
beverage use of alcohol except the
excuses oi appetite ami ot ignorance
;uid of the fashion of an outgrown
past. 1 he talse bebets and supersti
tions of the past as to the value of
ilcohol m any torm as medicine.
though they die hard, are now rapid
ly giving way. Thousands of doctors
now agree with the great Dr. N. S.
Davis, of Chicago, who said thirty
years ago that the use of alcohol as a
mediciny is never either necessary or
proper. It is a dangerous poison, al
ways a narcotic and a denressant in
its ultimate effects, and never a real
stimulant. And even if it were a real
stimulant, which science today knows
that it is not. oilier stimulants arc
liter and better. A large part of the
best doctors never prescribe alcohol
as a medicine today, l'cw doctors ol
any reputation, unless they are them
selves deceived by their own appetite
for liiptor. now prescribe a quarter as
much alcohol as they did some years
ago before modern ideas as to its use
had spread to them. Seldom indeed
would any careful doctor prescribe
any usctul medicine by the case.
Doctor's prescriptions commonly
read, "Do not relill;" and the bottles
are usually small. It is high time
now for all to know that alcohol is
never a proper medicine ill any of its
forms, and probably least of all in the
form of beer. It is a highly useful
fuel when burned in a suitable store.
