to hold them. In the melee which
followed Mr. Clarke was thrown and
the team passed over him.
He was taken to the lower end of
the lake in a launch, and from there
to Joseph and. home in a vehicle,
when Dr. Ault was summoned. The
dootor found many bad bruises and
cuts about the head, some of which
required stitching, but so far as

EXAMINERS' REFUSAL TO GRANT
LICENSE TO DR. A. F. NEMIRO
(From Portland Journal.)
Action of the state board of medi
cal examiners In refusing to grant
a license to Dr. A. F. Nemiro to prac
tice medicine in the state of Ore
gon was sustained by Judge Cleland
in the circuit court this morning, in
a decision dismissing the appeal of
Nemiro, who asked for a writ of
mandamus against the board.
Judge Cleland said the state board
of examiners la clothed by law with
the power and discretion of marking
examination' papers of applicants, and
unless there Is clear proof of abuse
of discretion and arbitrary use of
power the rejected replicant can
not complain. The whole question
Is one of fact, said the court, as to
whether or not the examination pa
pers were incorrectly marked' to the
prejudice of Nemiro.
"The evidence wholly falls to con
vince the court that the board com
mitted error," said Judge Cleland,
and the appeal should be dismiss
The rules of . the board require
that applicant shall sustain an av
erage grade of 75 per cent before
license can be Issued. Nemiro re
ceived an average of 68.6 per cent.
A score of the moat prominent phy
sicians and experts of Oregon were
called during the trial, opinion be
ing about equa'Jy divided In favor
of Nemiro and against him. The
'-rial occupied several days, the ques
tions asked of Nemiro and his ans
wers being reviewed at length by

Someone has remarked that the
masters are ready to do anything ex
cept to get off of the backs of ithe
workers. It soems that thinkers
are ready to do anything except to
come to the point.
You can hardly find a man these
days whoi will not say that he be-
Ieves In many things that the So
cialist advocates. But so many stop
short of ! the one essential thing
that is, the overthrow of exploita
tion. Sociologists' are coming more
and more to recognize the truth of
the Socialist philosophy. but, philos
ophy Is not enough. We muBt come
to the point of stopping the robbery.
Words are good as means of convey
ing Ideas, but words will not fill an
empty belly. Uuless we come to
ictlon, unless Socialism is trans
formed from the realm of philosophy
Into an actuality, Into a living,
breathing condition, it is nothing.
Scientists are beginning to recog
nize the tremendous evolutionary
force which i bearing us to Social
ism. , But If we depend on forces
alone and not on ourselves .we shall
be centuries in reaching what might
be obtained In a few years.
We must learn that men are roas
ters of tilings. We must recognize
.hat we can have Socialism when
ever we want it. We must under
stand that the peDple wlU .want So
cialism so soon as It Is presented! to
Item with all its native and actual
Let us shoot at the mark. Let us
put all the force which lie in
thought, which lies in that unnara
able thing called Life, into this
movement, and we shall become
masters of the situation Instead of
being mastered by It
Private ownership of great indus
tries has proven a failure In nearly
every Instance. How many thous
ands of litem have gone Into the
hands of receivers appointed by the
courts public officials? Some of
Ui em have gone there a dozen times
before they could stand alone. If
the Judges could take a property out
of the "skilled" hands of the cap
tain of industry, and set it on Its
feet and hand It back to the wreck
ers, how much better even thy
would have been to have controlled
It from the first to the lust. Re
ceiverships have been asked and
given when the big caplte lints de
sired to squeeze out the. holdings
of the smaller ones, if the nation
had collectively owned and controll
ed, thl could not have been done,
for 'there would not have been any
Individual stockholders to be squeezed
out. Private ownership of industries
has proved a failure. Collective own
ership never proved a failure any
where, except for the corrupting of
private ownership In robbing It or
bribing the public officials to misuse
It as an excuse to get It Into their
hands and so rob the people. The
only reason that any one wants to
own an industry is to rob his fel
lows, by making them pay more for
the products than the products are
worth. Do you get that? Would
you want to own an Industry if you
could not make a profit out of ltT
And wouldn't that profit be taken
from those who made IU products?
Doing away with private ownership
of Industries will do away with rob
bery and extortion. Do you wish to
be extorted from? Get wise, man.
