The Election,
The election In Hood River on Tues
day for town officers was more interest
ing and exciting than usual. One hun
dred nnd thirty-four ballots were cast.
The ticket nominated at the citizens'
primary was elected by a large majority.
Tor mayor, recorder and treaatuer there
was no opposition, the union primary
bavins nominated the name parties for
theae olEces that were nominated by the
citizens. A fight wan made on two of
the candidate for aldermen. Mr. Bon
uey wan outspoken in his opijnitian to
licensing a saloon under any circum
stances, and the result shows that those
ODWJSed to his views got in their work
ery effectively. S. E. Uartmess, who
ta with Mr. Bonnev on the license
question, also fell outside the breast
works. The successful candidates are
all representative citizens and business
men and can be relied upon to do what
is right and for the best interests of the
town in considering the liquor question

Hood River, Or., Dec. 1, 1899. Editor
Glacier: The wise man, centuries ago,
asked the ouestion. "Who hath woe,
who hath sorrow?" and many other like
aillictions. Then the same wise man
answered by saying, "They that tarry
long at the wine; tnev mat seeic miAcu
wines." Had he lived until the present
time he might include many other poi
sonous sample drinks. His answer then
was a truism, is now ana ever win ue
till time shall be no more.

Rev. H. K. Benson has accepted an
invitation from Mr. and Mrs. G. D.
Wood worth to sojourn with them for
two months at their country home at
of no successful argument. The might
iest forces in the universe are moral in
their nature, otherwise the evil forces of
the rum traffic would engulf the human
race. So, Mr. Editor, our motto is and
ever shall be, Prohibition. We are op
posed to any form or grade of license to
vendor sell alcoholic beverages, and can
maintain that the present law, or any
law legalizing the same, is a disgrace to
American civilization. It is the govern
ment that makes laws, but the people
nmKe tne government, it nas no exist'
ence aside from the people, is not a
thing that lives and acts independently
and of itself. Mr. Editor, you and I, in
The Portland Evening Telegram now
reaches Hood River the same evening it
ia printed. The Telegram is the bright
est daily newspaper in the state. It is
certainly the most independent, and its
hort but pointed editorials show up the
w.eak places in the make-up of our "lead

The Yamhill Reporter publishes the

army nurse who came with sick soldiers
on the transport City of Pueblo from
The trip was rough, and the poor pa

died on the way. , It is no way to send
sick home, and suclt very sick ones
some of them were. We came the
northern way bv Nagasaki, Japan, up
through the inland sea. Beautiful it
wus indeed. We were 2ti days, I believe
lost some time on account of storms.
I wish I could tell you how lovely Naga
saki is; so clean, looks as though it had
been scrubbed with soap. There are a
great many walls. All along the seawall
up the hillsides, the place is so green
and fresh, alter musty old Manila, and
the people look so happy, the place is a
good tonic. The climate is very like
San Francisco, not quite so cold. We
had one Jap dinner. In the first place
we had to remove our snoes oeiore going
into the house. There were no chairs,
only cushions, a little low table with a
ho e in the center, where was piaceu a
little charcoal stove, and our dinner was
cooked right there before us. it was
great sport, only we would get tired sit
ting tailor fashion, end hud to got up
and walk about a bit. Our dinner lasted
about two hours. I ate I don t know
hat all. Everything is nicely cooked
and clean. We ato with chopsticks,

Edrob Glacikr: As there has been
nothing in your valuable paper from
this part of God's footstool for some
time, perhaps an item from here would
tee read. W e will begin with the boom.
Dukes Valley has at last got a move on
and is trying to keep in sight of its neigh
bors of the surrounding country. Old
man Knox's barn begins to look rather
tarnish. He has only been at it now
about a vear and a half ; has the main
Dart up and one shed all covered, the
other snea reaay to raise. v new com
pleted it will be the largest and most
convenient barn in the valley.
John F. Dodson has gotten up steam,
too. Ha traded some land for two span
of eood horses, making in all seven head
for him and his boys. He has had to
enlarge his barn considerably, to make
room for hi stock.
C. W. Murphy has built an addition
to his dwelling in the shape of a kitchen.
W. G. Dodson has raised his barn
three or four feet, put one new shed 11
bv Id feet, with new roof over all, and
has nlanted a small orchard. He also
built a Doreh at his front door.
J. A. Cook is building a bedroom to
hia residence and is getting ready to go
to grubbing, to have some land ready
for the plow in the spring.
Roads, roads ; yes, roads! We must
nive a loud kick on our new road. Ev
ry other community has public roads
built bv the Duhlic at the expense of the
public We have a road granted, and
our very honorable county court has or
dered the supervisors to proceed to open
it. Our supervisor on the south nas
opened about one and a half miles of
the new road and left it to grow up
Main. Our supervisor on the north ot
ns tells us there is no work (or taxes) to
be put on the new road, except one or
two men. besides those that signed the
petition. He savs we will have to do
nate the work to open it if we get it
Mr. Editor, I am afraid this little item
l,ttfnan,nff tA milch, hilt. With VOUr
permission I will finish our kick about
our road. There are nine ranchers here
ia this valley. We have no public road
out. neither north or south. We all feel
like we are entitled to a public road
As most of us are now situated, we will
have to pay taxes, having our lands
deeded. We have spent considerable
time and a eood deal of bard labor on
the road. We have put in from one to
tour weeks' work on the road and are
willing to donate more work yet. Now
hist whv it is that our supervisors have
Jailed to obey the order of our honorable
county court ib somewhat of a mystery
to us poor benighted souls over here in
the backwoods. Will they five us good
Tenons for it? This is enough now , but
we have more ammunition left.

rage on humanity, a burning shame and
a disgrace to all civilization. If whisky
drinking and the barter and sale of al
coholic poison are right, w hy restrict it
by statute! v no ever heard oi a law
being enacted in a civilized and Christian
nation to restrict the free exercise of the
right? Law is made to suppress the
wrong, not the right. If the whisky
traffic is right, what authority has the
law to step in and restrict it? u by not
encourage the sale of it, for one man
has the same inherent right as another r
V hy not sell it same as dry goods, gro
ceries and hardware ! ihe government
realizes the fact that such a system
would be ruinous in its effects, and
therefore the restrictions. Hence the
party only who pays a certain amount
for the privilege, together with a bond
requiring certain restrictions, is allowed
to encage in the infamous traffic. If
right, w hy restrict it r ii wrong, wny
license it? No legislation can make
wrong right. The inherent principles of
right or wrong are eternal. hy then
allow me to inquire, does our govern
ment legalize and license wrong by stat
ute, permitting her subjects by law to
undermine and destroy every solid prin
ciple on which good society and good
uovernment are loundear from tne
same standpoint whv not legalize rob
bery and license cut-threats to ransack
and plundor indiscriminately? In short
to license a saloon keeper to vend hi
poisonous traffic is outrage upon out
rage, to rob man of his manhood, to
drive the spirit of action from his brain
to rob life of all its noble anections, ana
last, but not least, the soul of its great
est and future happiness and immortal
lty. License to nil jails and peiuten
tiaries. insane asylums, criminal courts
to break the hearts of loving wives and
mothers : to rob home of all its sacred
affections; to turn love into hatred. Li
cense to clothe innocent children with
disgrace and rags, to crush out of thei
young hearts every hope of life and hap-
mness lor time ana eternity.
