Dear Sir: " "
that there Is more crime, poverty and
insanity in the prohibition states of
Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont
than there ts in any other state in the
Union. The truth of the matter Is
that one Justice of the Supreme Court
in rendering an opinion upon another
subject, took occasion to say that the
right to sell liquor was not guaranteed
to all citizens of the United States by
Mr. Van Pelt does not want the
present local ' option law amended.
Neither does the Anti-saloon league.
No one can blame them iof this. For
having secured a very unfair advantage
in the present law, they would naturally
be opposed to any amendment of it.
Mr. Van Pelt says that the present
local option law is based' upon the
principle of majority rule. " This is
true in places. In other places it
provides that a precinct shall not have
majority rule unless the majority are
Mr. Van Pelt cannot deny that the
proposed amendment - gives equal
Dnvileres to both sides. It is a
straight orecinct local option law. It
; allows a precinct election to be held In
I any precinct in the' State of " Oregon.

Mr. Van Pelt says that the Supreme
Court of the United States has re
peatedly held that the liquor traffic Is
injurious to public safety, health,
morals and welfare, and that it is the
source of more poverty, insanity.
crime and misery than any other thing
known to civilization.
This statement is one of the oldest
falsehoods of the many used by the

any such thing, and. in fact, the

For more than twenty years Mr.: J.
B. Massey, of " 3322 " Clinton St.',
Minneapolis, Minn., , was tortured , by
Sciatica. The pain' and suffering
which ,he endured during this time is
beyond comprehesion. ' Nothing gave
him any permanent relief nutil he used
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One ap
plication of that liniment relieved the
pain and made sleep and rest possible,
and less than, one bottle has effected a
permanent cure. - If troubled with
sciatica or rheumatism why not try a
25-cent bottle of Pain Palm and see
for yourself how quickly it relieves the
pain. For sale by' W. P McMillan.
