Poured Oat Against the Liquor
Traffic in Salem.
AT EDWARD SWARTZ'S FUNERAL
Impressive Services Conducted by
Itov. Geo. W. Grnnnis.
A plain casket with silver handles,
covered with beautiful wreaths of
Ho wore, contained all that was mortal
of the late Edward Swartz in the lec
ture room of the First M. E. church.
Rev. Geo. V. Grannls opened the ser
vice with a feeling prayer, touching
upon the crime commlted. The trouble
and sorrow of the afflicted mother
wero eloquently portrayed In the most
Impressive lauguage. He prayed for
Lou Swartz: "God remember the father
and in sumo way reach his heart with
a blessing." He referred especially to
the liquor traffic, saying in substance:
"What ravages has rum wrought,
what bullets It has sent crashing
through brains, what daggers has it
has sent through the breasts of worse
than widowed wives and mothers
this flend let loose, this curse of rum."
He prayed for higher courage of citi
zenship to smite the liquor tralllo.
The large audience sang two verses
of "Nearer My God to Thee."
Rev. Grannls then stated that Ed-
ward Swartz was 22 years old the day J
before he received his fatal wound.
Hu was a quiet, sober, peaceably dis
posed boy, a dutiful son, the malu sup
port and comfort of tho .family. This
wua a gratiylng truth about this young
man's life and character. These words
were penned by Interested parties and
were alsospoken by those disinterested,
but were nevertheless true. He was a
quiet, dutiful, Industrious sou. This
far could we go, but no farther, Here
we must leavo lilin to God and trust
for tho beat. Thero was ample time
butweon the wound nud his death for
him to call upon and make his peace
with (J oil, hut he did not embrace It,
"I will take hued for my ways," was
uted as a text, The appeals and warn
ings continually came to men lo caiiso
them to pause and consider and pre
pare fur death, God had arranged for
tu to take heed to our lives, There was
no kiis run tee for anyone of us lo follow
any other Hue of action. There was no
other way lo be saved, Till way and

neighbors and friends for their kind
ness. TSie family of Richard Swartz and

THE QOOD ROADS REFORM.
What tho Bicycle Men Are Doing
for Good Roads.
No one wants to see good roads any
better than wheolmon. They get over
the roads moro than anyouo elBe, and
see tho necessity of road reform.
Work for good roads Is imperative.
Before good roadscan be obtained tbo
public must be oducuted to see the im
perative necessity of It.
Some one must glvo the good roads
movement an Impetus It has never yet
had or we shall never have any good
roads In Oregon. Tho wheelman can
Start the boom now for better public
Salem's four huudred wheelmen are
interested and organizing to push the
good roads movement.
The Jouknal will, on Monday,
April 20, at high noon, to the crack of
a pistol, start two riders on flue wheels
on a 6000 mllo trip each. They will re
port their riding daily and repori tho
roads as they find them.
Tub Journal will push Us own
business as the dealers in wheels can
and d3 push theirs. Rut the ouo thous
and men of Marlon county who ride
wheels owe It to tho good roads cuuso
to demand better roads by organized
efl'ort and persistently calling attention
to value of good roads.
Let tho wheelmen organize aud push
and work together and two years will
see a wonderful reformation In roads.
Tjik Journal invites tho hearty co
operation of the wheelmen of Salem
and tho adjoining country In tho cattso
of the Good Roads Reform.
There should bo an energetic, organ
ized eflort to make that Maynr'H con
vention at Salem May 8, a great suc
cess. The committee of seven aud tho
executive department should leavo
nothing undone to give the movement
a great Impetus.
It Is not every day a battleship Is

THE DDRBANT TRIAL

San Francisco, April 24. Thero is
little if any abatement of Interest In
the Durraut cnee aud Judgo Conlln's
court was crowded. Durrant appeared
a Uttlo moro cheerful when he nwoke
and a good night's rest and a good
breakfast brightened him porcoptlbly.
So far nothing new has boen brought
out by tho examination of witnesses,
though several things have been
brought out that seem to raako tho
case agaiutt tho prisoner ttronger.
Another female crank appeared. She
presented herself at the prison aud was
admitted to Uurraut's presence, and
after some conversation with hlm,iytst
of which was spoken with her mouth
almost touching his ear, alio left him
and went to Chief Crowley's olllco and
"Ho is not tho man."
Sho said that alio had looked at his
head aud neck and was posltivo ho
was not tho murderer. Sho said sl.o
was a gypsy queen, tbo most famrus
mind reader in tho world. Sho was
ejected by tho ofllcors without trouble.
Miss Williamson, who created tho
scene ut tho session, applied for admis
sion, but hor request was refused.
The flrst witness was Hurry Part

The Oauso of Bimetallism.
IL'ortland Bun, April 23 J
Tho Sun docs uotadvlso, for tho pres
ent at least, tho lndcpondent bimetal
lists of Oregon to leavo their respective
parties and join the now American bl
metalllo party. On tho contrary, It
strongly urges all tho independent bl
motalilsts In" Oregon to remain in their
respective parties and force tho selec
tion of Independent blmotallista as del
egates to tho uatlonal conventions of
all parties. TIiIb cau easily bo done by
organized and aggresslvo work, as un
questionably tho majority of all par
tics in this stato aro favorablo to indo
pendent bimetallism, An adoption of
such a plan throughout tho west and
south must result in tho independent
bimetalllstB controlling both the Re
publican aud Democratic conventions,
as well as that of tho People's party.
Tho ludepondont blmotallista uro light
iug fur tho recognition of tbo ono prin
ciple which they know is paramount
to all others combined. Tho majority
of the people aro with them; therefore,
good management only Is needed to
Tho Sun thoroughly realizes the
great diflloulty thoro is in getting men
to leave an old established party and
Its alliances. Hence, It advises tho lu
depondont bimotallsts as delegates to
tho municipal, county, state and na
tional conventions, and thereby force
tho nomination and election of inde
pendent blmetallsts to both the legisla
tive and the executivo branch of our
national government. In the adop
tion of suoh a plan failure or success
must bo shown as soon as tho platforms
aro adopted aud nominations made.
In case of fall uro then tho Independent
blmetallsts should continue tho light
they have made lneflectually In their
own parties by collectively aud unitedly
working lu tho now party.
Should the Oregon independent bl
metallsts leavo their old parties for a
new party, prior to tho next atato con
ventions, then tho Republican uud
Democratic parties in this stato would
undoubtedly soloct "goldltes" at dele
gates to tho next national conventions.
This would seriously olloot tho cause
nationally as well as locally, on account
of Oregon's, on accouut of Oregon's
geographical position. It Is of vital
importance that tho West should bo
united on the financial question. Then,
with n solid South, victory for Indo
peudeut blmotalism would boassurod,
Such uctlon might also Jeopardize Sou
utor Mitchell's chances of ro-oloctlou.
The Sun, though an Independent
paper, would greatly doprecato such a
