VOL. V. NO. 26. mm of i ROYAL ARCH DR. W. A. STEVENSON SPOKE OX TEMPERANCE QUESTION TO A LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE LAST NIGHT. Dr. W. A. Stevenson, pastor of the Presbyterian church, addressed a large audience last night on the sub ject of the 'Royal Arch. Its Functions and Purposes." He said in brief as follows: "Tex. Hab. 21 and 15. "The word of Habakuk means liter ally 'Beloved of God.' This old. pro phet lived in Jerusalem in the sixth century, when the Jewish nation was in decadence. The principal cause of their deterioriation, which finally led to the second captivity, was indulg ence in the wine cup. Ttfey became a nation of drinkers, browlers and drunkards, and when the eastern des pot camped outside the city and de manded its surrender, they, like Rome and for the same cause, had become so enervated that they could not fight successfully. "Hab. 2:12 says, 'Woe unto him that buildeth a city with blood.' As we look about us we see that some magnificent cities are being built by 'blood.' This question is now beirig brought to your very door, Mr. Voter, Heretofore we could lay the responsi bility of the licensing of the saloon upon council and the mayor—elect them and step back and watch them wrestle with the problem, but now this is all changed—the responsibil ity is on you. Yes it is true that $10,000 yearly would come from 10 saloons, but can we afford to take this 'blood* money? I say no. First, be cause it is contrary to the word of God and when a city, a nation or a people go contrary to the word of God they are going in the wrong di rection. Second. I say no. Because It is poor financiering. This liquor business costs more than it comes to. I asked an experienced superior judge of this state what per cent of the criminal cases coming before him could be directly traced to drink, and he said. 'At least 75 per cent.' For the first six months of 1909 180 cases came before our local police judge, of those 152. or 84 per cent, were charged with drunkenness. Fines? It is a well known fact that every dollar which the city receives from fines costs it five dollars to feed those who languish in jail. "Hob. 2:15. 'Woe unto him who giveth his neighbor drink, that put test the bottle to him and makest him drunken.' This is God's word. He is l here speaking to those who purvey wares that make the strong weak and destroy the weak. The state presi dent of the Royal Arch, in a speech in Anacortes August 5, after defin ing the purpose of the Royal Arch to be the defense of the saloon business as a 'legitimate' business went on to say, first, 'Prohibition does not pro hibit.' The law against murder does not absolutely prevent murder but who is insane enough to desire to have that law removed from our stat ute books? It keeps murder at a minimum. Does prohibition lessen drink? The United States revenue from all kinds of liquors was $199. --000,000 for '07, for '08 it was $15, --000,000 less —a nearly 10 per cent decrease. Let the percentage of de crease go on for ten years and what about prohibition? "1/ prohibition does not prohibit, and there is more liquor drunk in prohibition than in high license as the president of the Royal Arch claims, why then do the brewers and distill ers fight the movement as they do? The answer is easy. The claim is a lie. "Second, Mr. Morrison said, 'Pro hibition increases drunkenness. Peo ple will get liquor anyway and they will get poor liquor, poisonous liquor in the "blind pigs." ' The facts say no. In Jackson. Term., where pro hibition now prevails, the police re ports for April, 1907. under saloon, show that 84 afrrests were made for drunkenness; during April. 1908, un der prohibition, 10 arrests were made. (Concluded on page 8 > MAKES WAR ON EM BALMED PICKLES CHIEF CHEMIST OF AGRICULTU RAL DEPARTMENT STARTS CRUSADE AGAINST USE OF ALUM IN CUCUMBERS. Washington, D. C, Aug. 16. —Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief chemist of the agricultural department and guardian of the pure food laws, has started a crusade against embalmed cucumbers and gherkins inoculated with alum. He asserts that withered and half-spoiled cucumbers are given generous hypodermics of alum, and under its magic influence the once soft, soggy and generally disreput able pickle of commerce is plumped out, rejuvenated and becomes so pleasing to the eye that few persons can resist its alluring attractiveness. Although the board of food and drug inspection has had the question of the use of alum as a preservative under consideration for several weeks, no decision has yet been given. Meanwhile, Dr. Wiley is working assiduously against the embalmed pickle and the alleged unscrupulous undertakers. Alum, he says, is one of the lesser known preservatives, its use being more circumscribed than that of benzoate of soda, borax, for maldehyde and other chemicals which manufacturers wax fat while the con sumers grow lean. "What benzoate of soda is to the decaying tomato and borax to em balmed beef, alum is to the limp and lifeless cucumber," says Dr. Wiley. "The public does not appreciate the woes and misery concealed beneath the verdant jacket of the innocent looking pickle." CASHMERE VOTES TOWN "DRY" BY A VOTE OF 77 TO 46 WENAT CHEE'S LITTLE NEIGHBOR VOTES TO CUT OUT LIQUOR BUSINESS FOR TWO YEARS. Cashmere. Aug. 16. —Cashmere goes dry with a good majority, 77 to 46 against license. Cashmere had a little taste of a dry town since the licenses have expired and she seems 'o like it better so. The saddest ones are probably the two gents who wanted to do the town so much good by paying a license. Sold Bousquet Addition Lots. A. A. Bousquet some months ago gave an option on his addition on Chelan avenue. This was not taken up and ran out this morning. After its expiration this forenoon he sold a lot to George W. Wine and already has one or two other contracts in view which he hopes to close. The lots are 40x120 and are as sitely res idence lots as can be found in the city. The price on the lot sold was $1000. Clnb Meeting Tonight. An adjourned meeting of the Com mercial club will be held at the club rooms tonight. It is hoped that a large attendance will be present, as there are many matters of import ance to be considered. One of them relates to the display to be made Wenatchee day at the A.-V.-P. expo sition. Paint Arch Black. At the time the Comercial club in stalled the electric archway and ap ple at the depot it was expected that the frame would be black with white lettering so that it would be cop spicuous In the day time as well as at night, but the whole thing was painted black. A painter was sent down yesterday to remedy the de fects, but made the whole thing white, framework and all. This made it worse than the original combina tion and now it will have to be re painted again. THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD, WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 1909. HARRY THAW AS HE APPEARED AT WHITE PLAINS INQUIRY. Harry Thaw shows plainly the wear and tear of the three years' confine ment following thy* killing of Stanford White. When he appeared in court at White Plains he was not the jaunty prisoner that faced the bar at the first trial of the celebrated case. While Thaw is not nearly so impetuous and nervous as he was when first arraigned for murder, he looks much •lder «nd his carriage is not nearly so erect WIVES LIKE GOOD THRASHINGS JUSTICE SAYS THAT HOT WEA THER BRINGS ON BEATING MA NIA AND THAT WOMEN LIKE THE UNUSUAL SENSATION. New York, Aug. 16. —"There are women who like to be beaten," said Magistrate House in the Harlem court today, after declaring that the whipping post is the only effectual way to punish brutal husbands. "Wo men who have married wife beaters miss their daily thrashing after their husbands have been locked up for a few days. "A hot spell like this seems to start these wife beaters into special activ ity." he exclaimed disgustedly, mop ping his brow and tipping the revolv ing chair in his private office more comfortably. "And." he added, "there are more wife beaters in Harlem than in any other district of this city. "When a woman comes to me and proves that she has been beaten by her husband, I can issue a summons for him. But when I get him before me T can not lock him up unless the wife is willing to make a complaint, or unless he is before me on a war rant. "I used to think this sudden re lenting was due to love and Chris tian spirit. I don't any more. T think these women like to be beaten. I think they miss it when they are not beaten. "Yes, the woman who has mar ried a wife beater usually has no mental humiliation to forget. Any woman who submits to more than one beating in her life is essentially of coarser grain. A refined and edu cated woman would never again live with a man who had once beaten her. Therefore you see these women whose husbands thrash them every day have nothing to forget but the physical pain. There is no sense of mentafl degradation." "Why are there so many wife beaters in Harlem?" he was asked. "T am sure T don't know," sighed Magistrate House wearily, "unless it is because of the dearth of amuse ments in Harlem." Mr. and Mrs. John Cadman. of St. Johns, Kansas, arrived here yes terday to visit their sons. Sol and Ed Cadman. of this city. Member of the Associated Press BAD CHECK ARTIST CAUGHT PARKS, THE MAN WHO SECURED THE ENDORSEMENT OP LEM WARD TO BAD CHECK LAST WINTER, CAPTURED IN IDAHO. J. G. Parks, who made his appear ance in this city this spring and inci dentally made himself known to Lem Ward as a friend of years ago and also secured Mr. Ward's endorsement on a check for $30.35 on a bank at Astoria, Oregon, was captured in Ida ho Saturday. Deputy Sheriff Ken yon went after him and it is expected that the officer and the prisoner will be here tomorrow. After cashing the check in this city, Parks made him self scarce here. Investigation proved, that the man was wanted in other cities as well as in Wenatchee. When arrested in Idaho he supposed that the only charge against him was a minor one, preferred by a Colfax citi zen and he came over the line with out extradition papers. He was very much surprised that the charge against him was preferred by We natchee officers. Parks is an elderly man but it is likely that he will have a sojourn at Walla Walla. He is wanted in Colfax on complaint of Ed. Rosenkranz, the Whitman county agent for the Singer Sewing Machine company, for whom he had been selling sewing machines, charged with having forged two con tracts for sewing machines and upon receiving the machines sold them for cash and failed to turn In the money. He is also wanted in Wardner. Ida . ho, charged with having swindled a man out of $1,000; in Seattle for I having issued worthless checks in I,January; in Spokane for a similar ! offense, and in Lewiston, Idaho, for | having swindled a woman out of $500 under promise of marriage. Entanglements with women are said to have caused his being taken into custody, for it was through let -1 ters written him by his alleged Lew iston victim that he was apprehended \ after having evaded arrest for six months, although authorities were watching for him. Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Crawford, of Axtell, Neb., are visiting at the home of L. V. Garner. Mr. Crawford if an uncle of Mrs. Garner. They are on the return trip from the exposi tion. RRST WHITE BOY BORN HERE SOU OF POSEY S. WILSON WRITES FROM WASHINGTON, D. C.— HAS A GREAT LONGING TO RE TURN TO CTTY OF BIRTH. "Washington, D. C, Aug. 11. "Editor Wenatchee Advance, Wenat chee, Wash. "Dear Sir: Although lam a stran ger to you, I am taking the liberty of writing to you because I feel great ly interested in Wenatchee, as I have good reason to be. I was born in Wentachee November 24, 1892, and I am very proud of the honor of be ing the first white boy born in We natchee. My father, Posey S. Wilson, was the first mayor of Wenatchee. I came to Washington, D. C, when I was only a year old and have lived here ever since. Ever since I was able to think I have been looking for ward to the time when I could re turn to Washington state to live. I have finished my second year in high school and T am coming out there June next, unless I find that it is not worth while for me to finish school as I am not being equipped for any special work. You cannot imagine how anxious I am to leave this city and go to Washington for good. I don't like the people here and I hate the damp, soggy climate. Washing ton is a beautiful city, in fact I don't think there is a more beautiful city on earth, but the thought of Wash ington as a permanent residence is dismal to me. In Wenatchee I hope to engage in fruit-farming, that is, I want to work on a fruit plantation. As I have no friends there from whom to find out about conditions and how to get a place I thought that a newspaper would help me most. I do not know whether the Wenatchee Advance is still in existence, so I am addressing this to Wenatchee's old est newspaper. Please send me the subscription prices of your paper and tell me how I can send the money out there, by money order or other wise. Hoping to hear from you soon, I am "Yours respectfully.

It is his purpose to make a study of the best systems of this nation and com municate his deductions to his own country. Mr. Kaumamms is a very pleasant man to meet and spoke en tertainingly of what he had seen dur ing his travels in the west. He is very much pleased with the Wenat chee valley and was agreeably sur prised at the wealth of fruit which ladens the trees of this valley. E. M.
