For the benefit of the undis
cerning, it is here stated thut
this is not an apology for intem
perance, neither ia It a would-be
arguments against fighting in
temperance. It is a- protest
against the futility of the in
temperate trying to fight intern
perance.
As there are degrees, so are
there varieties of intemperance
sins, all of them.against God's
sober law. Temptation toward
intemperance of one kind or an
other comes to all or us, and so
long as we yield to our particular
kind, it is but sorry fighters
we will make of the other kinds.
The lady who prays at church
for the undoing of intemperance
and goes home to indulge in
three cups of tea. or who is sure
to have a headache if she break
fasts without her accustomed
cup of codec; the man who thun
ders invectives from the plat
form atotho greed of the liquor
' interests, and is the next day re
ported to be confined to his bed
with an attack of dyspepsia;
the girl who just doesn't see
how men can be so weuk as to
drink the nasty stuff, and can't
herself pass by a chocolate shop
with a nickel in her purse; the
young man who 1b righteously
Bcornful of tho fellows who
make beasts of themselves, and
whoso nearest approach to being
"up agaiiiBt if' was when he
discovered too late that the neck
tie he had worn to the dance was
entirely out of fashion these
cun never be effective forces in
the fight ugainst intemperance.
Thoy may be, und are, sincere
-and good.but so ure many drunk
ards good. It is not sufficient
to be Kood in the usual sense of
the word, it is needful also to be
strong.
Do hot the churches, tho W.
C. T. U. and all tho organiza
tions who have tho cause of tem
perance ut heart, sec how it
would mightily profit their cause
had they workers who were not
only in one tiling, but in all
things, sober minded, who could
preach temperance not only with
'tho words of the mouth, but
with their every act, whoso very
presenco would preach temper
ance and tho blessedness of torn
poranco? Tho man, the woman, who is
clean and wholesome, body and
mind, And who is gladly, radiant
ly alive, rebukes intemperance
more effectively by simply walk
ing down tho street than do a
dozen of the average sermons re
buke it, and when such men and
women do find the occasion to
say a word or strike a blow for
temperance they have tho back
ing of a personality which cannot
be laughed asido or argued down.
What we need is not more
preaching of tho sins of intem
perance, but moro demonstrating
of the beauty of temperance. It
' is living tho life that counts.
We cannot fight intemperanco
with breath and complexions
that advertise our unwholesome
'ness, with aenemic blood and
undeveloped muscles that give
credence to the insinuation that
perhaps tho reason we havo nev
er yielded to certain temptations
is that we have never had suffi
cient vitality to be tempted by
them.
To be sure we cannot well wait
until we are perfect before we
take a hand at fighting the vices
of society; on the other hand it
is well to consider the great
waste of energy involved in
rushing into the battle unequip
pednot to mention the lack of
faith it shows in the resources
of the Great Commander. Let
us reflect that the Power who
saw to the creating of the world
doubtless is still in charge and
equal to the task. We believe
it, of course, but it is but a poor
way of showing it to go shouting
-about hysterically over things as
;they are, exactly like frightened
'passengers on a sinking ship.
This does not mean that we
are not to take a hand in the bet
terment of the world that is ev
idently a part of the plan but
only that we shall go at it sober
mindedly.
Much is said of the virtue of
giving oneself, when one gives
rat all, but befor'e we pride our
selves in that kind of giving it
unay be well to determine how
valuable an offering we are.
.Most causes would gain rather
Uhan lose were their collection
.plates not weighted down with
' like bulky but ineffectual offer
ings. It is a fault of natures which
-.are easily wrought up to sympa--.thy,
and therefore, perhaps, a
--fault more common among wo
imen than men, to give impuls-
The annual meeting of the
High School Athletic association
was held last Thursday after
noon. Tho lonowing omcers
were elected: Basil Smith, pres
ident: Thomas Cochran, vice
president; Florence Wass, secre
tary: Maggie Dickie, treasurer.
The association voted also to pur
chase the equipment of the east
tennis court, opposite the high
school. As soon as the boys have
it cleared the girls will have
sufficient exercise until bad
weather sets in.
Mr. Boyd presented to the as
sociation practically the samet
plan as that of last year for man
airing the Lyceum course. The
school gave a unanimous vote to
adopt the plan, and empowered
the president to appoint a com
mittee to tako the matter in
charge.
The Lyceum course oitered
this year is much better even
thun that of last year. There
are five numbers as before, and
each feature is presented by art
ists of, the highest rank. The
following numbers constitute the
course:
Gray Concert Co., Oct. 25.
Flowers, Nov. 1.

Governor Hoch, Jan. 15.
Gillilan, Feb. 13.
The box office will be oncn at
Currin's after 7k.30 p. m. Friday,
Oct. 18.
The High School students will
surely show their appreciation
of the fuct that the school tick
ets are the same price as last
year, though the new course is
far superior and the general ad
mission price has been raised to
two dollurs.
A class in manual training
has been organized, and once a
week tho boys report at tho cen
tral Bchool for real shop work.

For Insurance see F.W.VaWBtiae
The first parcels post law ever
enacted in the United states
was passed during the closing
days of the last session of Con
gress. Credit for this bill is
I due Senator Bourne of Oregon,
who as head of the Postollice
i committee was in a position to
demand its enactment. For this
great advance Oregon should
take no small pride. What oth
er legislators havo been seeking
to accomplish for years, and for
which the people of every state
have made incessant demund
has been accomplished by an
Oregon Senator. The Postofilce
Department officiuls are now
working out the details for the
operation of tho system, and
hope to have everything ready
by tho time tho new law goes
into effect.
The Interstate Commerce Com
mission recently outlined a zone
system for tho muking of rates
bv cxnress companies, the result
of which, if it finally is ordered
into effect will be greatly to re
duce express rates all over the
country.
The parcels post system will
operate under the same sort of
zone arrangement, but while
its rates probably will be cheaper
than express rates for short dis
tances, the maximum rates prob
ably will bo as high us the pro
posed new express rates for
maximum weights and distan
ces.
Tho particular effort in the
framing of the Parcels Post
Law was to benefit the farmer
and at the samo timo protect
tho country merchant against
the big mail order houses by
giving him preferential rates.
That is tho reason for the zone
system by which the rate on
parcels post man increases
with distances. There is also
1 .-11 1
an insurance anu u coueci-on-
delivcry provision In the bill,
which applies both to the
amount of the postage and tho
price of tho artido .shipped.
ThU Parcels Post Law pro
vides that, hereafter, fourth
class mail matter shall embrace
all other matter including farm
and factory products, not now
embraced in either tno nrsi,
second or third class, not ex
ceeding eleven pounds in
weight nor greater in size than
seventy-two inches in length
and girth combined, and not of
a character perishable within a
period reasonably required for
transportation anu delivery.
Tho United States and its ter
ritories, including Alaska, but
excepting the Philippines, is to
be divided into eight postal
zones, which are to be worked
out by experts.
Tho rate on lourtn ciass mat
ter weighing not more than
four ounces is to bo one cent for
each ounce or fraction and on
matter in excess of four ounces
weight tho rate is to bo by tho
pound, the postage in all cases
to be prepaid by distinctive
Rostago stamps. Rates are
xed as follows for rural route
on city delivery:
Un all parcels jost matter
mailed at the postofilce from
which a rural route starts, for
delivery at any point thereon or
at tho office from which tho
route starts or on any rural
route starting therefrom and on
all matter mailed at a city car

its delivery limits for delivery
by carriers from that office, or
at any office for local delivery,
five cents for the first pound or
fraction of a pound and one
cent for each additional pound
or fraction of a pound.
Rates for greater distances
are:
For delivery within the first
zone, except as above, five cents
for the first pound or fraction of
a pound and three cents for each
additional pound or fraction of a
pound.
For delivery within thosecond
zone, six cents for the first
pound or fraction of a pound
and four cents for each addition

for delivery within the third
zone, seven cents for the first

five cents for each Additional
pound or fraction of a pound.
For delivery in the fourth
zone, eight cents for the first
pound or fraction of a pound and
four cents for each additional
pound or fraction of a pound.
For delivery within the fifth
zone, nine cents for the first

Farmers of tho Pacific North
west are to be en vied this year
for prices are high and crops
abundant. Hi almost every sec
tion the producers are rolling in
new wealth.
Thomas Morgan of Enterprise
harvested $10,uOO worth of grain
from one ranch in Union county
and he will grow enough on oth
er ranches near Enterprise to
bring his total crop up to 35,000
bushels.
A man in the Table Rock dis
trict of Jackson county raised
0,000 Hacks of potatoes on 30
acres. These potatoes are now

A hot) farmer in the Mission
Bottom country, near Salem, has.
grown $-10,000 worth of hops on
100 acres. 1 he crop is already
sold at that figure. ,
Every neighborhood through
out tho state can show similar
instances of lannors getting
rich. There are unlimited op
portunities for others. Tho

the United States, Porto Rico,
Hawaii, Alaska or Samoa,

Tho Postmaster General is
also required to provide by reg
ulation for the indemnification
of shippers using tho parcels
post for shipments injured or
lost, by insurance or otherwise,
and, when desired, for tho col
lection on delivery of the post
ago and price of tho article ship
ped, fixing such charges as may
bo necessary to pay tho cost of
those additional services.
The Act also authorizes the
President to appoint a joint com
mission of six members of Con
gress to make a further inquiry
into tho subject of 11 general par
cels post. Three membors of
the commission will bo senators
and three will bo representat
ives. An appropriation of $25,
000 is made available for the ex
penses of this commission.
The Vale Enterprise has a "good
idea of what a Commercial club
is and has the following to suy:
"A great many of our citizens
are inclined to overlook tho good
that is accomplished by the Com
mercial club. Tho peoplo of
Vale are not alono in this, as it
is the same, practically, all over
tho country. Tho Commercial
club shoulders all tho trouble and
expense of advertising our com
munity, and trusts to tho peoplo
to repay them. They spend
many nights in figuring on
something to help tho town, and
the people, who aro to reap tho
benefit, sleep peacefully. They
give a good part of their time
and often spend some expense
money, and the people do nqt
compensate them in any way.
The officers never stand back
from the work simply becauso
there is no payroll in connection
with their office. The small
growing town is the one that
needs a Commercial club and a
town never amounts to shucks
unless it has one.
The Portland, Eugene & East
ern, the Southern Pacific's sys
tern of electric lines, has defi
nite plans for bringing settlers
to the Willamette valley. When
the interurban roads are put in-

Eastern people to settle on the
land, hoping in this way to di
vide up tho largo farms and en
courage more intensive agricul
ture. The .company will pay
much attention to the establish
ment of canneries, fruit evapo
rators and other plants to utilize
farm products.
Tho man who is the man
worth while is the man who
places his earnings or fortune in
such a manner that after his
death those who aro most near
t . 1 1
and dear to him will benefit
from his worldly endeavors.
All men know that what they
have and enjoy here upon this
earth cannot betaken with them
when they die. Many is the
good man who has worried until
his hair was gray over the prob
lem that faces every man who
has near and dear ones to care
and think for. The problem is:
how to invest his money so that
those he leaves behind will be
best benefited. He knows that
as long as he is alive, there is
no living person to whom he
would entrust the safe keeping
of his property. He would not
trust the management of the
same to any one while he him
self is living and can supervise
and keep vigilance over their
actions; therefore how is it pos
sible to protect those for whom
he lives in this, their rightful
inheritance, after he is gone?
He cannot unhesitatingly and
with a feeling of content and en
tire satisfaction trust it to their
management, and all other meth
ods under the Old System are
loose and open to grafters and
fakers. Ho knows that through
his close and personal care in
the past his properly will after
his death be all the more suscep
tible to the pitfalls of the ever
merciless swindler. If he could
only find some investment into
which ho could place his money,
so that its regulation would be
governed, influenced, und deter
mined in the future by his pres
ent judgment, do you think ho
would take advantage of the op
portunity to use his judgment by
investing in such a manner that
his heirs will not only receive
full benefit from the investment,
but will have tho same protected
by law? If he does this, he can
rest assured as to tho protection
of his people and their interests
in the future. In fact, he is li
able, through taking advantage
of the opportunities offered in
tho Bonville System to not only
protect his money and tho earn
ings of tho same at tho present
time, but to protect it and the
earnings of tho samo for years
to come.
Perhaps you have u wayward
son. Experience tells you that
your hard earned money, which
would bo tho source of much ben
efit to your son when ho is older
and wiser will, if placed in his
hands free of restriction, thru
his wanton extravagance and
deficient business ability, not
last until such time when he
would appreciato tho value of
tho same. You aro puzzled be
yond measure to know how to
manage so that ho will be pro
tected in his rightful possessions
through that period of his life
when he would be more apt to
squander the same, until such
time when ho will, through ex
perience, gain that knowledge
of business thoughtfulncss und
reservo that murks the success
ful financier.
Again wo come to tho Bon
ville mothod of tying up securi
ties for an extended period of
time. Money invested under
the restrictions of this system
in an investment wherein the
production of a staple articlo is
tho object, has no excuso for
fuilure. Tho management is
practically beyond fault, for it
lies in the hands of those who
aro most vitally concerned in the
welfare of tho organization at
all times; and the management
can not be transferred into the
hands of disinterested parties.
Those in management are sever
al in number, und must be stock
holders of tho organization of
which they have the manage
ment. This insures personal in
terest in the advancement of
those factors relative to tho suc
cess of the organization. Tho
investment is not transferable.
The son cannot sell it and defeat
the purpose of the father. He
cannot raise money upon the
strength of his holdings in the
organization because of the con
tract to tho contrary between
himself and the company. Ho
cannot secure money in advance
upon unpaid dividends of tho or
ganization tho system permits
only of the dividend being paid
direct to the owner of tho stock.
He is obliged to recognize this
feature of tho system by the sign
ing of contract agreement at tho
time of tho purchase of his stock
in the company to the effect that
Bhould ho in any way violate tho
terms of such contract he shall
be subjected to the penalty pro-
For the first time in several
weeks all members were present
at the regular meeting of the city
council Tuesday evening. Mayor
Muck, who was suffering from a
bad attack of rheumatism, pres

in good style.

A communication from D. C.
Lewis expanded on the beauty
and benefits to ho derived from
widening Fillmore street and
making it a part of Willamette
boulevard so that it will be in
position to assume its proper
position as a portion of the pro
jected belt line road around tho
Peninsula. Ho recommended
that this idea be carried out if
possible. Communication or
dered filed on motion of Alder
man Horsman.
Betchel Bros, asked for an ex
tension of thirty days' timo on
the improvement of Burington
street. Granted on motion of
Mr. Horsman.
Bills amounting to $2 10.53
were allowed on motion df Mr,
Horsman.
Alderman Hill, fresh from the
wilds of tho Nehalem country,
strongly advocated tho establish
ment of a good and substantial
drinking fountain at tho Penin
sula National Bank corner in
stead of the makeshift affair
that has heretofore adorned that
site. He thought it Bhould be
something that would prove an
ornament as well as a conven
ience, something at which wo
men and children could quench
their thirst as well as the less
fastidious men. He mado tho
motion, which was promptly and
unanimously upheld, that tho
street committee bo empowered
to arrange for and install such
a convenience.
A proposition to alter the fer
ry service to conform with tho
car Borvico on the west side of
the river afforded Bomo food for
discussion in which Captain Ful
ler, and Aldermen Hill, Hors
man and Hiller took part, Mr.
vided in such contract of by
laws for tho offence. In fact,
the father, in choosing an in
vestment in a company organized
under this system has, through
applying his own business intel
lect, been able to protect that
which ho wishes his son to bene
fit from in the future, but which,
under tho Old System, would
hava been practically and, gener
ally speaking, impossible. Many
peoplo comparo tho buying of
real estate with the buying of
stocks and figure them upon the
same basis as per reliability,
etc. This is a groat and com
mon mistake. In tho past tho
real estato world has boon about
tho only possiblo security in
which any degree of confidence
could bo placed that was worthy
of mention. Stock investments
under tho Old System have boon,
and always will bo, an invest
ment of a very unstable charac
ter. Ip tho future it will be the
reverse. Except for agricultur
al purposes and for homes, real
estato will find that it no longer
leads as the only compromise to
ward a safe and sane invest
ment, and will, to uso a slang ex
pression, have to "take a back
seat" not saying that it would
be wise to purchase a home un
der tho regulations of these by
laws, for a person might find his
homo surrounded by environ
ments contrary to his best inter
est, which would cause him to
desire to change his location.
This he can do through trans
forming his property into the
ever ready medium of exchange,
money, and purchase himself a
homo in a location more suitable
for him. The man of whom ho
buys may havo also been dissat
isfied.and finds himself also ben
efited by the transaction. In
fact, in a real estato deal of tho
common form of barter, all par
ties concerned may realize a ben
efit from tho same.
At the recent Undertakers
convention held in Portland thono
in attendance wore given oppor
unity to take a very critical ox
nminution on tho Science of Em
balming before tho State Board of
Health. Many of the loading un
dertakers of the state took advun-
age of this, amongst them Mr.
and Mrs. Allan Blackburn of this
city, and it is a credit to St.
Johns ns well as to Mr. Black
burn that ho passed by tho high
est percentage of tiny in tho
class and Mrs. B. was among
tho next highest. Both received
a state license and diploma,
which entitle them to practice
anywhere in the United States.
Mr. Blackburn is a graduate of
Prof. Clarke's school of Em
balmingof Sprimrfiold.Ohio.clasH
of 1891. and Mrs. Blackburn
graduated from Prof. Rentumrd'H
College. San Francisco. Cnl.,
class of '1)8. .Both their diplomas
from these schools were burned
in the fire that dostroved their
place of business in this city six
years ago.
Hill believed that the furry ser
vice should not be of loss fre
quency, and that if any changes
were mado it should be in long
er horn's 01 service. Mr. Hons-
man was of the opinion that it
was entirely up to the trolluy
company to change its schedulo
if it did not jibe with the ferry
service, that the ferry was not
run in the interest r tho trolley
company, and if it wrnlud to
benefit from the Terry traffic it
was up to tho cohipuny to govern
itself accordingly. It was final
ly decided that so far us tho coun
cil was concerned the ferry ser
vice should remain us it ih
throe trips per hour and if anv
changes be made it be in tho
shape of longer hours.
Attorney btroud mado a splen
did plea for tho widening of Fill
more Btrect bo that it may bo
URcd as part of the system for a
boulevard around the lowor Po
ninsula. He depicted the won
drous beauty of such an innova
tion, how it would attract uni
versal attention and be traversed
by all prominent and influential
visitors coming to Portland. Ho
told of tho important bouluvardi
of Chicago and Now York, and
predicted thut tho Peninsula
boulevard would far surpass
either from a scenic point of
view. He thought that St. Johns
should take a lesson from tho
Eastern cities and build for tho
future while tho cost is small.
W. F.Stadolman. L. B. Chimnun
and one or two olhorcitizonH dis
cussed tho matter to some
length, Mr. Chipman favoring
holding tho proposed improve
ment of Fillmoro stroot off until
Spring, as little couljl bo accom
plished in tho way of improve
ment until that time at any rate,
Mr. Stadelman feared tho coit of
widening tho street would bo too
much for tho property owner to
meet, and ho favored improve
ment as originally outlined. W.
S. Basey thought the improve-
ment should go through at onue.
Alderman Horsman advocated
delay, and made a motion tlmt
all bids for its improvement be
rejected. Aldermen Valentine.
Hill, Wilcox and Horsman voted
yos on the proposition, while Al
dermen Davis, Hiller and Martin
voted 1.0; carried.
All bids on lateral to newer
on Fillmoro between Foigeiulen
street and St. John nvenuo
were unanimously rejected on
