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. That the rum traffic of today is the W. E.

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 ing rtateemen" in all parties.

Seven 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.

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 cnened. 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. Jo. A. Ker Pine ttrore School.

The secretary, assistant conductor and i - . . . assistant guard are to be chosen 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. 1 1 -. . .i i..o i. . . : Vw. nut. la viic reiiieuy i lb icbw 111 will of the people.
