Salem, March 19.
Editor Capital Jouknal.
Your cviddnt sympathy with the
principle of prohibition and your
fairness in discussion encourage me
to ask again the favor of your col
umns for a friendly criticism of your
own posltiou and for such a vindi
cation of the wisdom of partisan ac
tion as I may be able to offer.,
First, in an editorial published
last Tuesday, you ask what we ex
pect to do without the aid of one or
the other of the two great parties-rand
answer your question by s-aying:
"of course nothing." Your answer
is not right. Now, let me guess.
In the lirst place, our ample expe
rience with both old parties forbids
us to hope for aid from either as a
party ; but we conildently hope for
the support of thousands of the best
men from both parties, and, with
their aid, we expect to redeem Ore
gon and the nation from their pres
ent thralldom. You further say:
"It is also true that every measure
for the restriction of the liquor traf
fic or for its total abolition, that has
l)een brought forward in a northern
htate, has originated in and has been
championed by the republican party,
while the democratic party has
thrown every possible obstacle in its
way," If tills comparison of the
two old parties were just, it would
in some measure justify republican
prohis in hoping for relief from their
own party and render partisan ac
tion of doubtful propriety. Hut, un
fortunately for your position, the
Voice of March 1st, contains a state
mentin tabular form of all the states
which have adopted and which
have repealed prohibitory legisla
tion under each of these parties
from which statement it appears
that ten states and territories sev
en of them northern have adopted
prohibition while under the demo
cratic rule, and ten states, all
northern liave adopted while un
der republican rule ; also, that the
republicans liave repealed in ten
states, while the democrats have re
pealed in only live. These facts
prove two tfhings: first, that neither
of the old paruefuis worthy of a pro
hi's cmiJffde,ncoseeond, that the
republican is thelcss worthy of the
two. Yet, in Saturday's labile, you
mention among "cardinal republi
can principles" "protection for
Ameriuan homes against the saloon.
An increasing warfare upon It by
the most effective methods." I
would be glad to believe tills to be
among the dearly cherished princi
ples of the party it is worthy -to be
there but-is It there? On the con-
trary, in the -national republican
platform, its place is occupied by
"The Roster Resolution" You can
not lind It in your state platform.
Is the character of your leaders, Joe
Simon, ftarvey Scott, the eity couu
cil of Salem and their late distin
guished host sucli as to warrant
your party in claiming the princi
ple? J would like to reply to "Prohi"
but have sufficiently taxed .yourjjen
eroslty. Besides, everybody iknows
that the defeat of Judge Waldo was
due to the action of whiskey repub
licans under a competent leader.and
not to the prohis, who withdrew
their own candidate in .order that
the temperance vote might iiiot be
Party spirit seems to me to be the
worst enemy of prohibition, and
the situation will be very hopeful
when men generally discover that
their allegiance is due to good prin
ciples rather than to party names
that have ceased to represent these

Walter R. Vivian, engineer of the
Portland lire engine No. 4, while
acting as driver of the hose cart on
Sunday, was thrown off by the
team running against the curbing

fallen into the unusually large catch
basin or gutter that happened to be
at that particular street corner. It
was a narrow escape.
The Leader says of the old Ben

the old jail is now to bo sold to the
highest bidder. It has covered
many an aching heart, criminal

walls, could they speak, could tell a
tale to harrow men's souls. It has
long been a disgrace, not only to
Benton county, but to civilization.

The fish commissioners have de
cided that no salmon of any kind or
description shall be caught during
the close season. It has "been the
custom hitherto to tisli for salmon
at Oregon City during Marcli and it
was learned yesterday, saysTriday's
News, that parties were catching
fish there at present. To-day h Mr.
Thompson will leave for vQregrjn
City to investigate.the matter, and
if on inquiry it is found that the
law has been violated the parties
will be arrested and prosecuted.
Governor Pennoyer's attention has
been called to the Oregon City
matter and it Is probable that he,
too, will look Into it and give it his
The fish commissioners think that
express companies and their agents
are as much interested in enforcing
the fish law its any other portion of
the community is, for the reason
that if the salmon become extinct
through ceaseless fishing, It means
loss to the express companies. The
fish commissioners, therefore, think
that the express people should
refuse to carry salmon during the
present month. It is against the
law to catch the fish, and the ex
press companies should, therefore,
refuse to transport them for this
reason alone, if no other existed. If
this was done it would go a long way
towards preventing illegal fishing.
Mr. Thompson stated that the law
is generally being well observed.
A few complaints were made about
parties fishing on the lower Colum
bia but those who filed them were
in no case willing to swear out
complaints for the reason that the
information -came to them second
handed. Subscribe for the Journal.
