On second page of the ExrKESS this
week will he found some lenghty ex
tracts from a recent address delivered
by Hon. William Windom, ex-Sccre-
tary of the Treasury under President :
Arthur, on "The Saloon in Politcs."
The address was printed in the yeie
York Independent, and shows that the
whole business of salooii keeping is not
only calculated to make criminals, but
that the trade itself ought to le brand
ed sis a criminal calling. It is impos
sible to express the meanness, vileness,
and loathsome wickedness of the whole
work of drunkard-making although
legalized in language too expressive.
The Hon. ex-Senator and ex-Secretary
has done well; and would that all in
high places would disclaim all sympa
thy with the abominable trafSe as
pointedly and faithfully as Hon. Wil
liam Windom haa done. He has cer
tainly set a good example for our cow

Wherever liquor is sold there is crime,

TO THE FARMERS AND TAXPAY-
ERS OF LINN COUNTY.
On Tuesday next will be decided a
question of great Importance to the far
mers and taxpayers of Oregon. When
we consider that $91)0,000,000 is annu
ally paid into the colters of the rum
seders of this nation, sustaining a bus
iness which has no place in the con
stitution, without any constitutional
guaranty, whatever, for the purpose
of making drunkards, criminals and
burthcnsonie taxation", in many ways
to the producers the farmers and
others doing a legitimate business
is it not the duty of those who feel
these burdens, now that they have the
opportunity, to do all they possibly
ran to drive this whisky business be
yond the limits of our state?
Farmers, you are the ones who feel
the bad results from the sale of intoxi
cating liquors. It is you who pay at
torneys' and all other fees in the nu
merous cases arising in our courts from
the effects of bad whisky. It is you
who never receive one dollar's worth
of benefit from the revenue and license
on the sale of liquors that foot the bills
hi eases of murder, wife beatings, and
every other misdemeanor committed
under the influence of the poisonous
For instance: the saloon keepers of
Linn county pay into their respective
city or town treasuries a sum of money
(small Indeed compared wth the profits)
annually which is expended solely for
city or town purposes furnishing side
walks, lamps and other material for
lighting the streets, and various other
things not for the farmers' lienefif, but
almost exclusively for the "city folks,"
none of which financially benefits
their farmer friends. But let a murder
be committed in ot e of these saloohs
or let a man become "primed with
whisky" as the Oregonian tys aijd go
home and demolish his wife and chil
dren, does the money these saloon
keepers pay into said city or town
treasuries, for the purpose of dealing
out such stuff, pay for prosecuting such
violations of the law? 2s ot by any
means. Here is where the farmers and
taxpayers get a benefit by "going down
In their poekets"and"putting tip"their
hard, honestly earned coin that justice
may be meted out to the unfortunate
criminal which, were it not for the
gilded and otherwise atttractive temp
tations of the saloon, in many instan
ces, would be an honorable and re
spected citizen. In other words, Sir.
farmer, and taxpayer, you sometimes
pay very dearly for the esteemed whis
ky luxury (?) your city friends enjoy.
We would ask every fanner who!
reads the Expkfss to give this brief re
sume of the liquor business, as in our
miud it affects your interests, a carctul
consideration, and if you find us right
in the premises, go to the polls on Tues
day next with the determination that
the LJquor power, with its dire and
deadly influences, not only to your in

of producers, and especially to society,
political and otherwise, shall before

Walker of the city of Wellington, Sum
ner county, a city of twelve thousand
inhabitants, was recti ved this week, and
we take pleasure in publishing them,
that the voters of Linn county may see
how admirably Prohibition is working
in Kansas. Such frank statements as
these ought to convince any man whoj
has any regard for sobriety and public j

is simply contrary to the truth. Such
evidence as we have produced is, with

the Republican party, the man who
more than anyone else, is responsible
for the defeat of Judge Waldo because
he was too much of a temperance man,

it cannot support the infamy of such

IN UNION THERE IS STRENGTH.
"United we stand, divided we fall,"
is an adage as old as the hills, and yet
how true and how many times has it
proven to be an axiom, a Self-evident
proof In times gone by when unison
was needed to accomplish an act upon
which depended or depends the future
welfare of a nation. From the very
leginntng, when authentic history lc
gan to shine from the hills of Greece,
we obs rvo and are aware of the fact,
that all nan M ho have undertaken to
work for a good cause, that was for the
benefit of a nation or nations, had to
bntile hard against the wrong, many
diihculties to bear and many hindran
ces to overcome. Societies advocating
that every man should be governed by
his own conscience. Luther at Worms
battling with the Popo and all the
powers of darkness, he stood firm and
won the victory. How soon his fol
lowers multiplied. Now come down
to the war of secession of 1SC1, we ore
all aware of the ditlieultios that our
Government had to battle with. Fi
nancially our credit was gone. Mili
tary arms we had none, and good com
manders were also nt a premium, but
our object waa a grand and noble one.
we worked in unison with a loyal
heart and a crowning hope for Its fu
ture. Thousands of noble and Iguoble
young men hft tluir homes, their
wives, their children, all that was dear
to a father's heart, for t he sole reason
of freedom, and by this united work,
ns hazardous as it looked to be in the
beginning, we wiped slavery from the
face of this continent. And now we
have another londage or kind of sla
very, and that la the slavery or bond
age to King Alcohol. The crisis is
reached, a proclamation !s Issued, and
the battle is soon to begin, whether or
not are you going to fight for the right
or the wrong, remember God's mills
grind slow but sure. Every teacher In
the lana in every pu'jlic school must
pass an examination in physiology,
with the other branches required by
law lefore he or she can, or is entitled
to a certificate, and one of the divisions
of physiology treats of alcohol and nar
cotics, their effect upon the nervous
system, both mental and moral power.
Now in accordance to these laws, we
must teach the little boys, or boys be
their age whatever, all those that come
to school, that the use of aloohol has a
tendency to effect the brain, destroy
the seat of perception and retard the
growth and development of the mind.
Now you request this of us as a point
of law, and now let us ask your fathers
to help us to sustain this law that we
teach your sons, ami not only tell your
sons that if they -begin to use any in
toxicants, that one drink will call for
another, and that they will in the
course of time, become habitual drunk
ards, and fill an untimely grave, but
do all you can le a good commander
and a valiant soldier; when you come
to the banks of that liuliicon, stop and
think; let your own conscience dictate
to you what to doi. If the hour seenis
dark to you cast your eyes toward
heaven, for God will help those, who
try to help themselves. Work In uni
son and let it be said by the next rising
generation, that out fathers love crown
ed their children with a pure principle,
bj- denying themselves to all allegiance
to King Alcohol aud vote for prohibi
tion. ' '

Brownsville Union held an interest
ing meeting October 2S, the temperance
women feel that now is the time to put
forth every effort for the tight, resolved
thej will use tlie talents that have long
been folded away in a napkin, so that
when the Master calls for the one or
the ten talents they will be multiplied
in behalf of souls that are going down
for the want of a helping hand to stay
t heir faltering steps. Christ came fo
save perishing souls and if christians
follow his example they will make a
greater sacrifice than has lcen made.
Our temperance papers are perishing
for something more substantial than
sentiment. A wealthy prohibitionist
could do nothing better with his means
just now, than to expend a libera
amount for temperance papers for gra
tuitous distribution. Through the
press are the voters to learn the -questions
of the day.
Several Btirring appeals have bceri
made to the voters of Brownsville and
this precinct will prove the uprightness
of Its people ou the 8th of November.
CONSTITUTIONALITY OF PRO
HIBITION. For the benefit of those who are In
doubt upon this point we give some
opinions rendcerd by gentlemen who
are considered authority on these mat
ters: Chief Justice Taney said, "If any
state deems the retail and internal traf
fic in ardent spirits injurious to its citi
zens, I see nothing in the constitution
to prevent it from regulating and re
straining the traffic, or from prohibit
ing it altogether."
Mr. Justice McLean said, S'Xo per
son can introduce into a community
malignant diseases, or anything which
contaminates its morals or endangers
Mr. Justic Carton said, "If the state
has the nowcr of restraint bv license
to any extent, she has the discretion
ary power to judge of its limit, and
may go to the length of prohibiting
Mr. Justice Daniel said of Imports
that are "cleared of all control of the
government," "They are like all other
property of the citizen, whether own
ed by tho importer or his vendee, or
may nave leen purchased by cargo,
package, bale, piece of yard, or by
hogshead' casks or bottles." In an
swering the argument that the impor
ter purchases tlie right to sell when he
Jays duties to the government, Mr.
ustice Daniel continues to say, "No
such right is purchased by the impor
ter; lie cannot purchase trom the gov
ernment that which it could not insure
to him a sale independently of the laws
and polity of the state."
Aud Mr. Justice (iricr said, "It is not
necessary to array the appalling statis
tics of misery, paujierism and crime,
which have their origin in the use or
abuse of ardent spirit. If a loss of re
venue should accrue to the United
States from a diminished consumption
of ardent spirits, she will be the gainer
a thousand fold in the health, wealth
and happiness of the people."
Voters look put for tickets with "NO"
printed under "Prohibitton Amend
ment," 'Scratch" uli such hullota. '
DOES WHISKY PRODUCE CRIME?
An Array of Kvldoncc Showing that It
Since the question ot Prohibition
has been before the people of this State,
it has been our duty, rather than a
pleasure to note the amount of crime
resulting directly from the sale of in
toxicating liquors. While taking those
notes we have also observed the dis
graceful inconsistency of the whisky
papers from which the most of the fol
lowing clippings have lcen taken.
How 1W3 journal can hi one column
publish such fiendish doings, antl at
tribute them to the effects of whisky,
and then In another say we have no
right to put a stop to It, Is a question
the Oregonian, JWmv, and every other
whisky sheet hi the Shite have, as yet,
failed to explain. Read the following
extracts and judge for yourself:

In addition to the above we may
add the heartrending and brutal mur
der of Mrs. Kelty, over in Polk county,

will be remembered that Oscar Kcltj-,
