The Teachers' Institute convened in
the public school building, in Lebanon,
Dec. 26, at 7:30. The opening address
was delivered by O. P. Ceehow, Jr..
followed by the enrollment of teachers,
as follows: Josiah Gideon, Miss Sadie
Williams, W. L. Jackson, Miss Vena
Kearnes, Mrs. Hattie Tilfotson, E. H.
Bahr, David Torbet, M. A. Mi'.ler, L.
A. Wiley, S. A. Wilson, A. Mareellus,
R. N. Wright, G. F. Russell, R. V. i
Jackson, Miss Nettie Ullery, Mias
Lizzie Reed, A. J. Garland. The,
discussions of topies relating to school j
work were spirited and instructive. i
A careful calculation shows that the I
sum of S110.2S8 have been expended in
building in Lebanon the past j'ear, and
that more than one hundred house;
have been built, including three store
buildings, fine school house, a church,
a machine shop, a planer, and other
enterprises just begun. Certafn.lv, we
feel proud of these figures, but we have
many reasons for Itelieving that this
record will be beaten the coming year.
The Lebanon canal will be cut this
year and will add a number of enter

parlance of the day we would advise
people to keep their eye on Lebanon.

As we are just on the eve of an elec
tion, the following from theWoodburn
Independent may not be out of place:
"After the council refused to grant
license to sell liquor," says that paper,
"the excitement ran high during the
agit&tion of the saloon question, and
many men predicted the ruination of
the town if license was not granted.
Every means to coerce people into
sigmug the petition was used. The
leader of the saloon element told Mr.
Tooze his business would le boycotted,
alltioiiK'i. reare glad to be able to sav
that but fyw of the men in favor of
license upheld the threat. One prom
inent merchant even went so far as to
reduce his stock to about fSOO worth,
and olTered to sell his property below
cost, because he telieved prohibition
would ruin the town. However, li
cense was not granted, and property
holders anxiously awaited the result.
Never before had a village on French
Prairie dared - refuse a saloon a resting
place. On the contrary, inducements
had always been held out to them, the
logic of which was founded on ihe
erroneous idea that the saloon drew
the customers while the store, like
Lazarus of old, gathered the crumbs.
It was left for Woodburn to show the
utter fallacy of this and to prove that
the saloon is the parasite, the mer
chant the victim. Prohibition mav
not be a success in other places, but in
Woodburn it is."
