(Special Dispatch" to The Reformer.) Copyright 15 2. PORTLAND, Oregon, Oct. 11. Of all the amazing political situations in the United States this year, Oregon presents the most surprising, if not incredible, set of circumstances since the days of the far famed "Know Nothing" movement which in the days immediately following the Civil war sought to array Protestants agninst Catholics and' vice versa. There is actually on the official ballot to be voted on November 7. a proposal which, if enacted into law, would make a parent or guardian liable to a" fine or imprisonment' or both if he or she failed to tend all children between the. ages of ight and Hi years to the public schools during" the regular school term. Parochial sdvools of all denominations, Catholic or Protestant, private institu tions of all kinds "from 'musical" to .mili tary schools would be wiped out so far as boys and girls below 10 are concerned, if the bill is enacted. Oregon has a sys tem of initiating legislation at the polls and if enough signatures are secured to a petition the proposals are ku limit ted to the voters. Is Real Issue. This, however, i? no isolated measure thrust into an election accidentally by the small group of voters. It lias been deliberately planned and the issue is playing such a vital part in the state election that for the lirst time in many years a Democratic nominee for governor has a good chance of being elected in this overwhelmingly Republican state and largely because he has endorsed the bill, while his Republican opponent fought this movement in the primaries and won by a scant margin. Who sponsored the hill? The official pamphlet just issued by the secretary of state of Oregon, containing the views of the supporters and opponents of the measure frankly gives "as the inspiration for this jict'' a resolution adopted in May 15)20, by the supreme council of the Ani'iiMit :iiul A ccporoil rilr of Seotfish There are only two jurisdictions in the United States, so the action of the southern body which met in Portland in 15'20 is quasi-national. The grand lodge of Oregon A. F. and A. M.. and the Im perial Council of the Nobles of the Mys tic Shrine all endorsed tin' same resolu tions in June 15)20. It is printed in the official paiwddft and reads as follows: "Resolved that we recognize and pro claim our belief in the free and com pulsory education of the children of our nation in the public primary schools sup ported by public taxation, upon which all children shall attend and be instructed in the English language, only, without regard to race or creed as the only sure foundation for the perpetuating and preservation of our free Institutions, guaranteed by the constitution of the United States and we pledge the efforts of the membership of the order to pro mote by all lawful means the organiza tion, extension and development to the highest degree of such schools, and to oppose the efforts of any and all who ceek SL candy is sold Insurance Agency 20 American Building MOV THAT REMINDS ME tM SO TlCED 0 HAVING TKJ SAMS THING EVERY SUNDAY, I WISH I COUlO THINK OF 50METHINQ GOOD FOR ACKAWG to limit, curtail, hinder or destroy the public school system of our land." Masons Not United. Do all the Masons here subscribe to this doctrine? Not a bit of it. The writer talked to many Masons of high degree, who regretted that the resolution had even been adopted and who are actively fighting the enactment of the law. The newspapers are carrying paid advertise- i meats signed by "J-". It. Maivom, Z.Ul de gree, inspirator general in Oregon, An cient and Accepted Scottish Rite," urg ing voters to vote yes. Mr. Malcom t advertisement states that the bill "pro poses no religious restriction ; it contem plates no limitation of the right of the parent to teach religion to his child in his own way and according to his own belief ; it raises no issue of. re ligious difference," but that it is "purely a measure to insure that all children by attending the public schools shall be taught alike during their grammar school years so that their outlook may grow to be a unified outlook for the common wealth and for their country and its in stitutions." Were it not for the fact that the; Kit Klux Klan here is strong and that its candidates came within iAH) votes of win ning the Republican nomination for gov ernor in the usual type of anti-Catholic tight waged by the Klan, the claims of the supporters of the bill that they are not aiming it at Catholics but all denomina tions would not be so much a subject of j controversy. I here are more Catholic parochial schools thau any others and naturally the Catholics cannot be con vinced that the measure is aimed else where. In the same official pamphlet, wherein are printed the affirmative and negative arguments, one finds a vigorous denuncia tion of the -bill "by the Oregon and Washington district of the 10vaiigeli. Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio and other states." Some of the leading busi ness men and bankers, several of them . r.. : i i. .,,..,..,.... . ;,... the bill condemning it as u .denial of. the right if a parent to choose teachers for Ids children, a revival of the Prussian method of wlucation and as the svstem of I'.olshevist Rnssia. "which treats thel child as the ward of the state." Presbyterians Oposcd. Presbyterian ministers and other clergymen have joined with members of the Catholic Civic Rights association in declaring that what the country needs is harmony, not discord, and pointing out that the measure will not accomplish the objects sought even if enacted. "Who owns your child? The state? Do not you? Asks the Lutheran group in their official appeal to the voters of Oregon. 'Who 'feeds and clothes your child? The state? Not while you are living ; and able to care for your own. Why do you feed and clothe your child? Reciiuse it is your child. If you don't own your own cfifld. what in the wide world do you own? Now if you own your own child and are in duty bound to feed and clothe it, you have 'some say' about, your child's education and its teacher. The state has a right to compel you to educate your child just as it has a right to compel you to feed and clothe your child. Rut the state has no more right to ch.ooj.-e the teacher for your child and the school it shall attend than it has to tell you where to buy your child's cloth ing and what style, of clothing it inut wear. "Under the constitution of the United States and of the state of Oregon you en joy religious liberty; that is the liberty to" worship God aeoerding to the dictates of your conscience and to rear your child according to your religion. If you see fit to send your" child to a. school in which the religion 'of your church is taught not one day in the week but every day and the whole training of the children is per meated by such religion, the state, under the constitution must not prohibit you from doing so. This bill, if enacted into law will prohibit you from doing so. This bill is manifestly unconstitutional." Would Re Expensive. What makes the situation so difficult to understand is that the Democratic nominee for governor who is making such headway because of his advocacy of a program of lower taxation, should ltc endorsing a measure which if enacted would mean new schools and teachers to take care 'of approximately lU.(HM) chil dren now in private denominational schools. ' At present writing the bill has a fair chance of passage . because on subjects like these so many people "feel instead of think." I'.efore the campaign is over, however, it is safe to predict that every newspaper in Portland will come out against this bill. That may change the ;it nation considerably and bring about n defeat of the measure. The same kind of , bill was submitted' to the voters in Miehigah in recent years and wns beaten in Oregon this year except this educa tional bill and it is -inconceivable that it nearly tto to one.

His uncle forcing his way through the thick under growth ,saw what he thought to be a partridge roosting in a tree and fired. The boy fell to the ground. SAME OLD WILIIELM. His Actions Since in Exile Indicate an Unbalanced Mind. From an interview with AVilhelm von Hchenzollern. in the New York Times, written by Baron Clemens von Radowitr Nei, the world learns these instructive facts regarding the present behavior of the former kaiser: "When he looks at you, he stares long and rather blankly. "He walks vigorouslv. four or five hours a day, in the small garden at Doom. - . "Above all. he talks; and when he talks, everybody else has to listen. That, more than' ailvthing else, has made his and admirers who arc still willing to at I tn.t I,;, v "Oftentimes" for an tour those who are listening to him have.no chance to interrupt, no chance even to ask a -ques-tionj - - - "'"' . , - "Then, abruptly, all - is . changed.. Others ak questions, and the kaistr-does not deign to answer." A; charming person, indeed ! And there cannot biVuiucu doubt 's to the opin-i ion any mental specialist would express.
