HOOD KIVER, GLACIER, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1905.
LIQUOR SHOPS CLOSED TIGHT INTENSE FEELING AT TROUT LAKE Hood River in a dry town for the first timo since saloons were opened here six years ago. The liquor shops are securely bolted and hard or soft drinks can't be secured over a bar for love of money. Thursday of last week word came from 'i'ln Dalles tl:at the gulocn keep ers had been fined for violating the local i inn law. and the doors in this city immediately closed. Snow bopin falling at once and in a few hours the city was experiencing zero weather. During the previous week, District Attorney Meuofee informed against C. K. llayviird, John Morrison, P. F. Fonts and Seneca Fonts, the proprie tors of the four Hood River saloons, charging t hem with violating the pro hibition law by selling liquor within a prohibition district. Demurrers were tile 1 to the information, thereby raising the question of the constitu tionality of the law, and the regular ity of the proceedings in this county with reference to holding the prohibi tion election. After argument, these demurrers were overruled by Judge firndsiiaw and the defendants refused to plead further and a judgment of conviction was entered up against each of them. "When the question of fine came up," says District Attorney Menefee, "1 insisted that the fine should be a heavy one, unless with the under standing that the saloons should close up and remain closed uutil the case whs decided by the supreme court, when if it should be decided in favor of the defendants, of course we would have nothing against them. Judge lirndsliaw agreed with my advice and stooil by me in the transaction and the line's were placed at ?50 upon the promises of two defendants in open court to rite that their places of busi ness shoul 1 lie closed until the case was decided by the supreme court. Tlie same action was taken with the other defendants, the two Foutses, upon the assurance of their attorney to the same effect. In other words, wo have the promises of these people that they will not again violate the law and will do nothing in the way of selling liquor unless the supreme court holds they have a right to. "We thought this arrangement the best policy because our object was to see that the law was not violated and the sale of li pior if it was a violation of law anil alo to prevent the neces sity of further prosecutions and the expense incidental thereto, and I pre sume, that is all any people of Hood River could ask. The fines were placed at &"0 for the reason above stated, and further, when assured that tlie law would not be violated, it semed to the court that the violation so far was, to a certain extent at least, in good faith and uponJthe advice of their attorneys that the.law was not guoiLj Coral. Tlie red coral which is used in Jew elry and which Is known as precious .oral Is mostly obtained In the Med iterranean, the Barbary coast furnish ing Hie dark red, the vicinity of Sar dinia furnishing the yellow, or salmon ....invert variety and the coast of Italy the rose pink. It is also found In the Red sea. Unique Votive Offering;. In many churches of Trovence and Italy, especially those near the sea, paintings placed on the walls in ac cordance with vows made by pilgrims in moments of danger are often re markable for their frames. Among the curiosities may be enumerated laths formed of splinters from ships that have been wrecked; also frames made of pieces of heavy cables, occa sionally painted bright hues, but some times left in their primitive gray col or splashed with tar. Nailed to the laths surrounding a painting repre senting sailors fighting with fierce sav ages may be seen African or Polyne sian spears and darts or swords made of haul wood, evidently mementos of terrible struggles. Sailors or lands men who have made vows during times of peril at sea and who have no troubles to display will surround their paintings with broad bands of wood heavily inernsted witn Blieus ana sea weed, not Infrequently of rare and ex tremely beautiful kinds. Special to the Ulacier. Trout Lake, Wash., Feb. 15. A good deal of ill feeling has been stirred up over the case of the farmers va the Menominee Lumber company, but sentiment here is divided in the mat ter. The shutting down of the company's industries is looked upon generally as a public misfortune, as many em ployes are tnrown out oi worK. un the other hand the farmers are In censed at the destruction of their ir rigation ditches and farming lands by the operation of tbe splasn dams by the mill company. It is reported here on good authority that the lands of a colored man were badly in jured and his claim for redress ig nored. Action of the Earth I'pon Bodie. Years ago, when the bodies were re moved from the Cimetiere des Inno cents at Paris, the common pits in which great numbers of the bodies had been interred together were found to contain masses of a grayish white soapy substance. The matter was not very well understood at that time, but it is now known that the remains of the dead are under certain conditions transformed into such a material, ei ther wholly or in part, which has been named "adlpocere." It is a true am lnoiiiacal soap, being a combination of fatty acids with ammonia. Rodies that are exposed to the action of water percolating through the soil are most apt to undergo this species of transformation. Inasmuch as adlpo cere is not perishable under ordinary circumstances, corpses thus changed very often retain their form indeflnlU iy. Now and then they are dug up, and Ignorant writers in newspapers refer to them ns wonderful instances of "petrifaction." A Queer Crjlonee Crass. Lemon grass, known to botanists as Antlropogen scnaenaniuua nuu which 13 unknown outside of Ceylon, and there only in the Kandlan dis trict. Is in several respects a most re markable vegetable production. It grows to n height of six or seven feet and has the wonderful property of spontaneous Ignition. On the slopes of Mount Anibulawe during the wet season the grand spectacle of these spontaneous conflagrations is frequent ly seen. At first a single curl of smoke or bright tongue of flame will be no ticed. Soon, however, as the water runs down the stalks and mingles with the oil and acids contained in the pith of this curious herb fierce fires burst into view here, there and every place, soon covering the whole mountain in a sheet of flame. The botanists and chemists have not as yet explained why this paradoxical grass ignites when water falls upon its stalks. As Farmer Sees the Situation. White Salman, Wash., Feb. 15. Ed itor Glacier: I am not in a position to give much information about this suit of the farmers vs. ine lumoer company, as 1 Know iiuie oi me menu of the case, we wno resiae on this side of the little rill that sep arates ns from the goats over your way, and who are not involved iu the controversy ; those of us whose only irrigating ditch begins at the necK ot the bottle and terminates in the gastric juices, etc., deplore the inability of the parties to settle the differences apart from the judicial buzz-saw where the remnants'" are always pil ing ud in evidence and principals are so frequently enveloped in the fog. As a reformed lawyer, it occurs to me that if the plaintiff in any case could be the grateful recipient or a swat on the cerebellum with a robust club just prior to the verification of the complaint and the dofeudant have administered to him a son oi nunc Ero func installment of future retri ution, such as the Almighty used to dole out to those who expired iu their sins 50 years ago, both parties to the litigation would be iu better condi tion, say, "When the robins nest again, " and they then wouldn't have to spend eternity ruminating over the cost-bill or looking around iu Heave j for a lawyer to explain "how it h .opened. This last sentence is what retori- ciaus would call "periodic." It be gins away back in the past and comes ambling up to the present in a listless and supine manner as if the future had been delayed oy a wasn-out ana the present were in a state of coma. The Menominee Lumber company is the largest employer in western Klick itat. Its employes are many or tneni single men but in many cases families are dependent on the earnings of the sturdy men who do its work. The closing down of its camps is a public misfortune, there s no douot oi tnat. Whether tbe ust claims or tue Trout Lake farmers made the injunc tion suit necessary is a question I do not care to guess at. If unneces sary, they have strucK an unneces sary blow at the development of the section where their homes are located. If it had to be so in order to protect their interests at the expense of the employes of the company in its camps and those depending upon tneir laoor, the trial will develop the facts so that a justice-loving public may for mulate its own verdict. Meanwhile industry along the river languishes and the farmers along the irrigating ditches with grim determi nation Hx their ivory tusks into the quivering flesh of the Menominee Lumber company. If they win it will be the corporation, and if they lose, it will be the court. When the farmer finds himself hung over a clothes line exchanging chunks of fur with a corporation, the feath ers come out of the other fellow as an act of Divine favor, -but when he comes to meditate on his own bedrab bled appearance at the end of tbe ju dicial fracas.be is prone to look upon the dispensation of justice as the medicine prescribed by a corporation riddeu deity. I am a farmer. I am at present wearing a pair of pantaloons donated bv a benevolent relative in the city whose wife had condemned them to the junk heap, and digging around for back taxes, but I'll bet a big bunch of baling wire that before the case of the Farmers of Klickitat County vs Menominee Lumber Co. is decided linallv bv the federal courts, the city of Hood River will reach from Mosier to the Cascade Locks, and White Salmon will be the county seat of Kwis-whosky county an the new state of Oh-sba-gousky and the bones of the present inhabitants will have been thoroughly picked. "Government by injunction" when set in motion by corporations is a terrible iab at the very foundations of our liberties, but in the hands of the farmers is a "very present help in time of trouble, and many there le that go iu thereat." The real center of the universe is "us." God is with us and the devil is always the bugler on the other side. Why God created the other fellow still remains a mys tery. Corporations have no soul and the rest of us are lacking in good judg ment and so the courts continue to do their stunt, and in the grist are shreds of hair, loug hair with timothy seed and clover seed entangled in it and short silky locks smelling of hair dressing ; finger nails thick and horny with dried milk in the corners and fingers manicured. In this grim grist lie withered hopes, tangled purposes and rat-eaten resolutions, eyes, noses, ears, pieces of homespun and silk cravats, in short, everything that poiuts to a genuine human catastrophe. Mr. Editor, once I was young and now I am old and somewhat emaciated ; silver hairs are fast stealing into my straggling whiskers! Listen to me, my opportunity for observation has iieen exceptional. If a lawyer knows the law of the case you are gritting: your teeth about, he can show it to you, read it to you and the knowledge becomes your own. But if you go in to court to confirm your judgement and escape a head-ou collision, you are likely to be run into an open switch or jump a trestle. Between the filing of a complaint and the final mandate there is a cir cuitous route beset with the kind of paraphernalia that oriental degrees are conferred with in fraternal orders. The honest adminstratiou of law is not so bad as a corrupt one, and judi cial corruption is rare, but it is eaiaer for a hyppopotamus to thread the needle's eye than for a litigant to come out even or his adversary to get withiu megaphone call of the kingdom of Heaven.
