W. C. T. U. NOTES
MARY A. NOTSON, Reporter.
To bear some of the wets talk,
you would think that moonshining
was never heard of until after the
eighteenth amendment was adopted.
In 1901, a federal officer shipped
from Lexington a still which he had
seized in the mountains south of
Hardman. Several barrels of mash
were destroyed at the site of the
still. At that time there were four
teen saloons in Morrow county.
Something like four years ago, op
eratives working under the direc
tion of Sheriff McDuffee captured a
still near the Morrow-Umatilla coun
ty line. A prominent citizen of that
part of the county told the officers
that he had seen that still in that
neighborhood more than thirty
years before. At that time saloons
were running In all the towns and
liquor was cheap, but moonshining
The United States is compared
with Great Britain very frequently
as to law enforcement, and the
comparison is very unfavorable to
the United States. However, the
following Associated Press news
dispatch published in the newspa
pers of this country shows some
thing of the conditions as to the
illicit liquor business over there:
"London. Bootleg liquor is an

from abroad; some is made by illicit

In Canada, where, under govern
ment control, liquor may be easily
bought in a legal way, they have
trouble with illicit liquor business.
Several high powered motor boats
are employed twenty-four hours a
day in an attempt to keep the rum
runners from landing cargoes of li
quor on Vancouver Island, and they
do not succeed. The bootlegger, the
blind-pig, and the speakeasy are in
business because they can make a
profit and still sell at a price be
tween the rum-runners' price and
government price. Government con

fact is, John Barleycorn is an out
