Mr. Frltchel, pastor of the Lutheran, church in this city, has created quite a commotion both in his church and outside in signing a petition for sa loons. In relation to this he says: "I am not favoring the misuse of intcxicating beverages. It seems to me if I should have refused to sign the petition I would have assisted the prohibition movement, that I con scientiously cannot do. It is my per sonal conviction that prohibition is against personal liberty; that it does not eliminate the misuse of intoxicant placing very frequently cue evil in place of the other, and that prohibi tion has no foundation in scripture. Comp. Col. 2:16; St. John 2, i seg.: St. Mark 14:33 seg., and others. I shall with all my ability assist in any temperance movement which ha for its object to abolish drunkenness and lamentable conditions we find in a manner which, according to my un derstanding, is in conformity with true religion."

On the Road to Success. If the Eagle Bend Placer Mining Co., Ltd., does not prove ai success it will be no 1 fault of the promotors, they are working with untiring ze.al and are meeting with great encourage ment. They know they have a> good thing and it does not take long to con vince the most skeptic. They also use thorough business principles in placln this company on the market. Being firm believers In the use cf printers, ink they are doing considerable judi cious advertising. The plans of the mill are completed and) are quite an elaborate affair. They are to the hands of the secretary and can be seen by any one who wishes. The mill will have a capacity of 300 tons of concentrates a day, which is ex pected to pay a i dividend of from 10O per cent to 500 per cent. We are also informed that they are meeting with good success in dispos ing of stock, several shares being sold the last week. They also have a capitalist in Massachusetts ready ten take several thousand dtollars worth of stock as scorn as he convinces him self that the gold is there, and that seems easy enough to do. They have no salaried officers, and no money will be spent until enough is raised to complete the mill. In a few days they will have several agemts on the road selling stock and expect to have the required amount raised by the opening of spring.
