ciated. With courage and foresight
seemingly denied the daily press of
the state in general he correctly
diagnosed the Ku Klux disease and
applied the necessary remedy of pub
licity. In his paper last Friday he
dealt with the "pussyfooting” of the
Portland daily press in an editorial
which is quoted hero:
“Characteristic of its logicless logic
is the editorial elucidation of ths
Portland Journal’s pitiful pettifoggy-
ing policy of the present political cam
paign. Discussing the question as to
whether we are to have irresponsible
invisible government by the Ku Klux
Klan or visible and responsible gov
ernment as provided by the constitu
tion, the Journal says in rts first
editorial discovery of the klan:
“ 'Why try to forre a question of

unable to pay their taxes ?

debate thst men were warring over
centuries ago ? Why resolve the peo
ple of the state into a pro-Catholic
camp and an anti-Catholic camp?
Hasn't hatred enough already been
stirred up without the insistence that
we make a religious question the only
"Evidently in the Journal’s mind,
the Ku Klux Klan and religion are
synonymous terms, and an attack
upon invisible gwvernment to an at
tack upon religion. Where does it
get that stuff? Who to endeavoring
to raise a religious issue, except the
Ku Klux Klan? Who is dividing the
state into a pro-Catholic camp and
an anti-Catholic camp and anti-Jew-
ish camp and an anti-negro camp,
except the Ku Klux Klan, aided and
abetted in its nefarious course by the
secret sympathy of the Portland
Journal which misrepresents facts to
shield the klan and enables it to pose
in a false attitude before the public?
"Continuing the Journal says 'What
could a few thousand Catholics do if
they won the election? What could
a few thousand Ku Klux Klanners and
members of allied secret societies do
if they won? Overthrow the consti
tution? Ditch all the laws?
down the flag and hang everybody on
the other side? Certainly not.* Yet
we have the Ku Kluxers and allied
secret societies attempting to over
throw the constitution with an initia
tive bill prohibiting private schools
and a long list of communities testify
to a goodly number of victims klans-
men have hanged. Hiey suspend the
constitution wherever they go and
take law-enforcement into their own
hands. No one can say what they
would do once in power.
“The Journal is playing the klans-
man's game. As a result of its shame
ful policy of silence, the Ku Klux
Klan has flourished like a green bay
tree in Portland and now dominates
the political life of the metropolis,
controling its schools, its city hall
and its courthouse. It has nominated
a K. K. K. delegation to the legisla
ture and carried Portland for its can
didate for governor. The Journal has
never once told its readers what the
klan really was and what its sinister
intent and baleful purpose are. Had
the Journal thrown the light of pub
licity upon the machinations of the
klan, it would have made its success
“The Journal echoes the Ku Klux
Klan bunk about a Catholic attempt
•to capture Oregon. The Journal knows
this is pure demagogy. There is no
Catholic running for high office in
Oregon. There is no effort by Catho
lics to capture state or local govern
ment If there was, there would be
the same opposition to Catholic domi
nation that there is to Ku Klux domi

Ku Klux Klan to dominate the polP
ties of the state by means of appeals
"There is no religious debate on
the part of those who are seeking
destruction of the Ku Klux Klan and
all it represents in the effort to pre
serve constitutional guarantees of
liberty. The debate is over the ef
forts of unscrupulous grafters to com
mercialize religious and racial ani
mosities for personal or politial
profit. The disuasión is over the
illegal acts of those who take the law
into their own hands and substitute
