Prohibition Movement In Oregon.
Paper read by Mrs- W. C Wilson at tha meatinj
of the Enterprise W. C T. U July 9.
Of all the vital questions that come
before the American people to b
seriously considered. Prohibition
heads the list.
Any measure whioh helps to build
up home, community, and nation,
ought to be, and U e:couraged. Th it
which destroys and ruins, should be
crushed and rendered helptew.
The saloon la the nation's greatest
enemy, for into Its doors go honor,
health and noble aspirations, oat o!
them come sorrow, broken hearts,
misery and woe. We are on the
aide of God and Right, when we seel
by our example and precept to stor
it's baleful influence. So let us en
gage in this warfare with a Hnr
and steady purpose to raise the fal
len, strengthen the weak and woi'I
with our might In this great Temper
once cause, remembering' GoJ's prom
ise to direct and help us. If we b;it
ask him.
The modern temperance movement
may be said to date from the pabli
cation at Philadelphia in 17S" of l r
Benjamin Rusk's essay on "The e!
feet of Ardent Spirits on the Human
Body and Mind.-' We as Americans
are Justly proud of the fact that K
America belongs the merit of having
taken the first steps in this matter

ciety was formed In Saratoga count;

was the outgrowth of the Woman
Crusade which originated in Ohio la

the people under the initiative amend
ment to the constitution in 1907, the
majority for the adontion of the l&w
being about 1,603. The result of the
recent contesU in the state was a
sweeping victory for us. Of the 30
large counties i:i Oregon, 21 have
voted entirely dry, thus excluding
the saloon from over two-thirds of
the state's area. At the first elec

there were six vo'e3 cast for Prohi

that a brother's vote was one of
the six. The result of the last

This litt'.e hem is from the "Home

of prohibition are falsehoods and un
vonliy of attention, but occasionally

teems to bear the ear-marks of truth,
iuch a report comei from two towns

ire up in arms because the long

possible to secure washer-women.
Husbands no longer bend over the
ar and wive are not compelled to
bend over the board. The money

beirs all the earmarks of truth, for
lonie reason however. It has fal lei
to be copied extensively In the

Washington, July 29. The Presi
dent has Just signed a proclamation
making a National Monument of the
Oregon Caves or ".Marble Halls" of
Josephine county, in the Siskiyou
National Forest about thirty miles
south of Grant's Pass In Cave Moun
tain. The caves are marble and other
limestones and consist of innumera
ble caverns, corridors and passage
way of various sizes, all of them
decorated beyond description in
crystallized carbonates. They have
been explored to a distance of two
miles or more, the lowest of them
being at a depth of about 2,000 feet
below the summit of Cave mountain,
the highest being some seven or eight
hundred feet above it. There are
many passageways and rooms which
iave never been opened, and with
these distant and unexplored open
ings the magnitude of the Oregon
caves Is practically unknown.
These natural wonders were dis
covered in 1874 by EHja Davidson,
while bear hunting, and the greater
Part of the exploration work was
