From the 7m7im IVadr we lonrn
tlmt Mm. Dunniwuy, who I flyinjr
through Eastern Oivroii in tlio Interest
of a Portland jinner, I opjPtHl tn pro
hibit on, tunl says tin1 vonun have no
interest in the antemlmont." She did
not preach that dot-trine when she was
after the teitioernnee votes of thia State
in the interest of the woman suflVngo
At that time, accord in jr to her theory,
the women were the only true tem iter
ance reformers, and the faet that the
HUfTrajfe amendment was dofi-ated
makes none of them Ie. miloii in the
Itood work aavc, nroVmMy, the old lady
herself. We regret that the nVtViit of
her amendment has made her vicious
enough ta misrepresent her sisters of
Oregon, by baying they have no in
U rcxt. In the great reform to lo br vipht
about by the success of the prohibitory
amendment. We would like to have her
come up into Linn county advocating
tuieh sentiments. There is a host of
her sex who woukt give her to untk-r-atand,
very emphatically, too, that
fle was mistaken. If the mothers,
wives and datighteis of Orcjron arc not
inteitted in the sums of prohibition,
m ho 3 ? or rather, who ought to bo ?
Let Mrs. Dunniwuy consult Mrs.
Haddock, of SSioux City, Iowa, or Mrs.
ixambtvl, of Mississippi; or, to come
home to .Oregon, and visit the newly
formed mound over the remains of
Mrs. Kilty murdered with babe in her
arms, ly her husband a few days ago
while under the influence of whiskey,
and then say "the women have no in
terest in the amendment !" She knows
tctte than that; and, as the" Blade
truthfully says, "the women, whoso
ivuumm. t.ei.Miem i.p.i.
the manners and morals of the men
a : . : t l . , ...4 ... 1
folks, are most intense) v intercetel in
thi et niggle for freedom from the rule
of ealoon-kcepers, and Mrs. 1)., altlio'
pretty flmrp, cannot argue the ladies
into indifference on the matter.''
'Prohibition does not prohibit," says
rum-fellers; and yet they tight it with
with all their power. 'We like such ar
gument. It is an emphatic acknowl
edgement on their purt, that in six
months after the Sth of next Novem

the shops they have been running in
the interest of the devil, wh-n they
will have to turn their hand to some
business or occupation which has not
for its object the degradation and ruin
of their fellow creatures. The whiskey

TO VANCOUVER AND RETURN'
Lebanon, Ok., June 20, 1S7.
Editor Exprixs: Thinking that a
description of the trip made to Van
couver by the Lebanon Hose Team
would be of interest to many of your
readers, I will give you a brief outline
f the mot interesting features.
On the morning of June Sri when
roll was calitd, jnt b-fore te boarded
the train, v& learned that Johnnv
Hope, one of our beet men, could int
accompany us. This necessarilv
pvsseit our captain. C. C Hackleniaii,

At 10:10 A. M. we arrived at Tort land
making our headquarters at the Inter
national hotel; at 3 p. m. wc took the
steamer Lurliw. for Vancouver. Our
ride down the Willamette, and up the
Colnmbia waa a very pleasant one. At
5 P. M. we arrived at Vancouver. As
we were a day ahead of time, we were
not met by the Vancouver firemen, but j
soon met wil h Chief Went worth who
directed us to the boardinar house of I
AC IT 1 I . L
v.. . runner wueie rooms were r
engaged for US. The bovs were n't
loud in their praise of the excellent ac
commodations furnished us bv the
landlady, who did her utmost to make
our visit a pleasant one.
We had the pleasure of witnessing a
dns parade of the U. S. soldiers which
aside froru being attractive, demon
strated in a marked degree their perfec
tion in manual of arms, while a more
gentlemanly and courteous set of men
is seldom met with. Their good will,
and the kind favors shown by the citi
leus of Vancouver, will not be 8:xn for
gotten by the Lebanon Hose Team.
The citizens of Leltanon were none
the less proud of the part tiicir firemen
look in the tournament, and with one
" accord were at the depot to give us a
rousing welcome home. We Iwre with
us the first prize in the wet teat hose
race, and the second prize in the State
Championship race, which we won
fairly and squarely over competitors
whose frantic efforts to secure it, made
the honor doubly welcome to us. Cheer
after cheer, mingled with the music
of the Lclianon brass baiid.grected the
boys as they stepped form tle -ars, and
recognizing the fact that a fireman is
always fond of good things to eat,
bounteous repast had been o'rdcnil for
tts the St. Charles hotel, where sur
rounded by enthusiastic friends, ample
justice was done to the spread.
One of tiic Twelve.
The Xcw Jersey conference made a
deliverance on temperance that can
hardly be misunderstood: "We insist
on legal prohibition by constitutional
amendment as the ultimate rented v in
territory, state and nation, and eiiter
our strongest protest against tiecoming
the party to the traffic by receiving a
a revenue therefrom; that traSicing in
alcholrc leverages is a crime, and the
only right concerning it is the law of
extermination and no taxation or li
cense. CttUrvJ. Cu-iatian Advocate.

an increase in colonies as soon as they

keep colonics strong.
Farmers' wive who have charge of
the poultry should not let the men feed

but keep a few quarts cxviv day and
warm it over a h t stove and then mix

When planted very early, It is an casv

Young pigs will usually commence to
eat when about tlm-e weeks old, and
the more attractive the portiou put
within their reach the quicker they
will learn to make a full feed. If they
can have a little fresh milk at the start
so much the Is-tter, but by common
consent skim-milk is counted sufficient
to meet pigry's notion. With milk as
a starter they will soon take to slop
