CHURCH TAX AGAIN
-V CONTRIBUTOR EliAJDORATEIiV
STATES HIS OPIMOXS
And 3Inl:c General Replr From
His Standpoint to The
PORTLAND. Jan. 7. To the Editor.)
Kindly allow me a few words In reply
to your criticism of my communication
an The Oregonian of the 4th Inst., upon
the question of exempting church prop
erty from taxation.
My opposition to this exemption does
not, as your remarks would seem to im
p'y, spring from a spirit of opposition to
religion. Quite the contrary- No one
holds in more profound respect or in
deeper reverence the subject of religion
than does the writer of this article. He
lielleves religion to be that true relation
-which the finite sustains to the infinite,
and which we, as fellow-croatures, sus
tain to each other, and that the clearer
nnd truer our conceptions are of this re
lation, the more faithfully we live up to
these conceptions, the more religion we
have, and the more of religious inspir
ation we receU-c. But this requires no
church organizations, such as exist to
day. The writer of this articles believes,
further, that religion is the sublimest and
grandest subject which can possibly en
gross the mind and thought of man; also,
that no human being should live in any
other than a religious sense, or any other
than a religious life; that in .the living
such a life, man's truest happiness con
sistsa life wherein man's physical nature
is subordinated to his spiritual, and his
-whole being brought Into unison or har
mony with the great creator, and the
-works of his creation. While there is
happiness to be derived from the grati
fication of the senses, he conceives man's
highest and noblest to be in the devel
opment of his spiritual nature. To be in
harmony with the creator and with the
vast works of his creation, he conceives
to be the summum bonum of existence, and
the highest source of enjoyment a human
being can experience, in this Or any other
world or worlds. This he considers the
nd and .object of existence. .Entertain
ing views of this nature, his opposition
to the exemption of church taxation can
Jiot well be ascribed to irreligious motives.
To his mind, true religious views are one
Thing, and church organizations quite an
other. His views may be narrow, as you
say, but they are none the less sincere
and honest To many of your readers, it
may be difficult to reconcile this, which
lot them may .vrem a paradoxical posi
tion, of being friendly to religion and at
the same time inimical to church estab
lishments. But this is mainly owing to
education. To suoh, if any there be. The
Oregonian favoridg me with the space, I
-would be glad to endeavor to show how
this can be, and in doing so furnish my
reasons for thinking our churches of so
little help in developing human progress;
that they retard rather than help.
My opposition to the exemption of church
property Is not because I do not consider
our churches representative of the true
religious element. I should be equally
opposed to exemption If I thought the
reverse. 1 am opposed to the proposition,
first, because I consider it unfair and un
just; and, second, because I consider it
contrary to the spirit of our institutions.
It is making one portion of the communi
ty, which is in no way interested, con
tribute to the maintenance and support
of the privileges enjoyed alone by the re
maining portion. This, to me, seems un
just. Were I a member of a church ex
empted from taxation, I should not feel
as though I was doing as 1 would like to
le done by, were I to force, by law, a
Mon-churchman to bear with me the ex
pense of what is to me alone a privilege
or an enjoyment. This, to me, would be
selfish. To me it savors too much, as I
Bald In my former article, of forcing the
Entire community to support an estab-,
llshcdf church!' whether It will or no. I
Itnow The Oregonian says "no one's taxes
arc Increased by exemption of church
buildings, for chiirch buildings would not
exist if taxed as private property." But
liow The Oregonian tigures this out is
past my comprehension. Let us suppose
one-half of the property In thtsclty to be
owned by the churches and exempt from
taxation. Would not the other half have
to be assessed double what it would other
wise be were the entire city property as
sessed? Would not the tax upon one-half
have to be greater, by 100 per cent, than
it would be If the ihole bore Its propor
tion of the tax" Mr. McCamant said in
his article that 5 per cent of the property
of the city is exempt from taxation for
i-hurch purposes. But it does not matter
-whether the per cent be 3 or 50, or l-10th
of 1 per cent what we are aiming to get
at is the principle Involved and not the
amount. Possibly I may misconstrue The
Oregonian's meaning. Again, The Ore
fionian says that only upon the ground of
the churches doing police duty the render
ing a public service for good can exemp
tion from taxation, in their behalf, be
iustUled But if this be sound doctrine,
why not exempt the property of every
other individual or society rendering- a
public service for good? Where Is the line
to be drawn? Is The Oregonian quite
right in iylng our church buildings would
not exist if taxed as private property?
2s exemption from taxation the inspiring
thought and will which governs in the
erection of our church edifices? Has
fashion, or rivalry nothing to do with it?
Take the new Congregational church in
this city, for instance. Are we to under
stand that that would not have been
built but for this exemption? Or take
the First Baptist? Was the exemption
clause the deciding inllucnce which en
tered into the erection of that structure?
1 can hardly think a congregation rich
enough to build a $109,000 structure would
be deterred or prevented from carrying
out its plans by the item of taxes.
You say, further, "the.ve ediilces produce
an effect on his (man's)) intelligence and
moral nature that mckes a constant in
llucnce for the purUication of society and
the elevation of humanity." I quite "agree
with you that line architecture tends to
this effect. butcanyou not countuponthe
lingers of one of your hands all the
thurch odlflcos in this city which in any
way minister to man's higher nature?
And, if yes. how about the balance of the
church buildings iu this city, and in
the state at targe? For this Is a state
question and is not confined to Portland
Do you consider that the great bulk of
the church property in both city and
state tends to the ranking of a purifying,
elevating influence? And, if this be an
argument in favor of exempting church
odiflcae?. why should it not apply equal
ly well to all other line architectural ef
forts In the city and state?
If churches are to bo exempted on this
ground, why should not other specimens
of Hne architecture be also exempted.
Take the Oregonian building, for in
Mance. Why should not that be ex
empted? There Is no purer or more per
fect specimen of architecture in Port
land than The Oregonian building, and if
thurches are to be exempted upon this
score, why nl exempt this building also?
Again, you say, "every branch of art
In all ages of the world owes Its develop
ment to his (m&n'tO religious nature.
The oontrolHng influence over the whole
nature of mat. of this imagination that
has produced the great art of the world.
Is summed tip in the history of civiliza
tion." Granted; but where does our high
est civittxatkro come from? Does it come
from the urwtiem. or does it come from
the past hundreds and thousands of
vtars ago? Where awl when did art
raost flourish? Where do we look for Us
highest oxprtften? From what age do
ve draw the development in mathemati
cal &.IMWG that, reaHy. which Includes
all other sciences and has made their de
velopment possible? We boast of our ad
vancement under what we call this
"glorious light of Christianity," but what
have we to show for It? We are nothing
but copyists. Take- architecture, for In
stance, of which we have just been speak
ing. Wc have to go back over two thou
sand years for our models of today. There
is scarcely a thing which we do today,
unless it be the malting of a mowing ma
chine, or something of this character,
which was not executed as well. If not
better, then than now. We puff ourselves
up in our conceited imaginations over
our wonderful advancement in the arts
and sciences; but again I ask, what have
we to show for it?
For our originals, in most instances, we
go back to a period antedating the birth
of the Christian era.
Your quotation from Milton is a very
beautifully expressed sentiment, but it Is
nothing but sentiment after all. There is
no argument about It no logic It i3
simply an expression of Milton's feel
ing. I have never seen anything In any
church windows very awe-inspiring. If
you had said from Portland Heights, the
grandly majestic spectacle of Mounts
Hood and St. Helen's rearing their snow
capped peaks above the skies is one of
the sublimest sights on earth a feast
worthy of the gods you would, I think,
have sh'en your readers something vast
ly more "subduing" than any lines from
Milton, beautiful as they might be. To
me there is a jense of grandeur and sub
limity imparted oy the view of these gi
gantic manifestations of the creator's
power, which no church windows, how
ever beautiful, can ever Impart.
In the conclusion of your criticism you
say "Kvery person of tnlesensibillty must
regret that the argument for taxation of
houses of worship always runs into an
assertion that churches are needless." But
is this fair criticism? Would you have me
saj- I thought them an advantage or a
benefit if I thought them otherwise? The
Oregonian is too fair to its correspond
ents to have me say this.
This question is a church subject and if
I think I ought not to be taxed for their
support, because I consider them a draw
back to the world's progress. I ought to
say so in words not to be misunderstood,
and to be able to give my reasons, for
thinking as 1 do. The best way always is
to call a spade a spade. My views hae
not been lightly taken. They are not
screeds against churches because they
are churches. I do not underestimate the
good which the churches do, and in my
opposition to exemption I am not influ
enced by feeling. I consider that the
harm they do more than offsets the good,
and in this opinion I am as honest and
sincere as The Oregonian is in taking a
different view. My views are not based
upon prejudice.' and they are the result
of study and thought and founded, I be
lieve, upon principle as solid as the ever
lasting hills. J. R. REED.

IMPROVEMENT OF OREGON

PORTLAND, Jan. 7. (To the Editor.)
The number of communications favoring
Immigration which you have published
within the last few months, no less than
your editorials upon the subject, warrant
the assumption that the average opinion
of the people of Oregon favors an Increase
of population through Immigration. We
may also assume that the average opin
ion, notwithstanding its component parts
sprln? from various roots, represents the
best intelligence of the people. Ergo, im
migration is desirable. It Is due to the In
telligence of those favoring immigration
to suppose that they are more or less
conscious of the truth that highly devel
oped social conditions are impossible in
a country sparsely populated, and that
It Is their desire for better social condi
tions, and their recognition that to be
In touch with, and in Interdependence
with the many, brings greater possibili
ties of enjoyment than -Independence U
touch only with a few. Jt Is this truth
realized, but undeflnable by the masses
of mankind, which Impels the trend of
population from the country to towns and
cities. Manifestly, Portland need have no
concern for Its quota of the population of
Oregon. The same causes thut lead to
the Increased population of cities at the
expense of the rural districts in other
stater are at work here. It is likewise
true that Portland's prosperity must de
pend upon the productiveness of the coun
try. Civilization began with the plow, and
will doubtless end with the plow, as its
greatest factor. It might, therefore, go
without toying, that, most of all. Oregon
needs more men to make farms and till
them, more men to plant orchards of the
apple, the pear, the peach, the prune, and
the smaller fruits, more dairymen, and
more men in every department of coun
try life to draw from nature the bounti
ful promise of a fertile soil and a pro
pitious climate. It is our boast that we
possess such a soil and such a climate, yet
too many, we are inclined to think, are
disinclined to a country life, and day
wuges in town, with two or three rented
rooms. Is preferred by the average family
to a farm and farmhouse, all their own,
in the country. In the fnce of these facts
the problem of securing desirable immi
grants for Oregon warrants more than a
The attractions of the country are. for
the greater part, what nature has given.
Added to these there is a prospect of
attaining to the measure of the indepen
dence of the farmer, which is so much
talked about and seems to be so little
appreciated. On the other hand, the city
possesses the attractions of civilization,
among which are its social conditions,
made possible by the ease and facility
with which people can come together.
Other advantages could be mentioned on
both sides, but for the purposes of this
article, which must not be prolix, those
mentioned will suffice. In the light of
these facts. It seems to me that if we
could add, or make possible, some of the
attractions of town life to the country,
an abundant immigration would come
to us and our own people would find
country life more attractive. To do this
we should be guided by the same practical
rules observed in successful business un
dertakings. A real estate man, for in
stance, who was about to put an addi
tion on the market, woukl lay out and
build streets and make other Improve
ments upon his addition. Might it not be
good economics for the state to build
good public roads and bridges throughout
Oregon? There are few good roads in
any of the new states of the Union, and
Oregon is not blessed with more than its
share of them. The endurance of bad
public roads Is a part of the price, seldom
taken Into account, which wc pay for rail
roads, la fact. It may be doubted if one
native American in Ui born west of the
Mississippi river ever saw a really first
class wagon road, such as may be found
In some of the Eastern states and are
common in lSurope. Good roads shorten
distance: proximity to neighbors makes
meetings frequent; frequent meetings
make social intercourse: social intercourse
leads to the betterment of social condi
tions. I may be permitted to say. in paren
thesis, that this is in tio sense akin to
tlie Coxey plan. It would be bad eco
nomics for the state to build roads sim
ply to give Us citizens employment. Their
building should be justliled apart from
It is thought to be wise in real estate
men to offer special inducements for mak
ing valuable improvements. Might it not
be well for the state to exempt all or cer
tain valuable country Improvements from
taxation for a term of 39 years or more
Nature is the foundation of all culture;
but she hi stern even in her best moods,
and an environment of natural conditions
is only temporarily attractive. The rug
ged landscape Inspires the painter and
the poet; but means to the farmer hard
The migrations of man. like all othei i
movements, must continue to be on the
lines of least resistance. Let us remove
all resisting conditions which a sound,
practical judgment will warrant, and then
advertise Oregon's resources and advant
ages in a practical manner, as a business
man would advertise. To be more spe
cific, the advantages of our soil and cli
mate for dairy farming should be adver
tised in the leading dalrymens papers o!
the Eastern. Middle, and "Western states.
Fruitgrowers should be reached through
the columns of their papers; apiarists,
through theirs; farmers and breeders,
through theirs; and the general public,
through immense special editions of the
best papers of Oregon.
To the reader who is sufficiently inter
ested to ask. "How shall We do all this,"
I will answer, let us return to our real
estate man and we will find that the cost
of improvements is by him assessed
against the" property improved pro rata
as to benefits given. Corner lots and
others most benefited are held at higher
prices than back lots or lots less bene
fited. In the end the purchaser pays the
eost of the improvements which induced
him to invest his money. So, also, owners
of land lying in immediate and near prox
imity to a proposed rpad should pay a tax
in proportion to the proposed benefit to
ace'rue to them. Inasmuch as a good
public wagon road In any part of the state
is a benefit to every part of the state, a
general tax would be justified to meet a
small part of the cost of building roads
and bridges, but the major part of the
expense should be borne by landholders
along the line of such roads. It might be
more appropriately said that they should
advance the cost of such roads and
bridges, for they would be amply repaid
by the use of such Improvements, or In
case of sale, would recoup themselves by
putting a higher price upon the land sold.
"But how," asks the interested reader,
"can you justify an exemption of im
provements from taxation?" To which I
reply, by the same reasoning, the same
justice, equity and self-interest which
leads Individuals to pay for benefits con
ferred. . Oregon, we believe, is unsur
passed by any state or country in its
natural advantages for dairy-farming. Yet
the state does not produce sufficient of
dairy products for home- consumption.
Hence, more dairymen and the best breeds
of dairy cattle are wanted. Under pres
ent laws, the better stock a man brings
Into the state, or breeds here, the higher
he Is taxed, or, in other words, the heav
ier he is fined for doing the very thing
the state desires him to do. The fruit
grower who plants an orchard has to pay
an annually increasing fine for .several
years before he can expect any return for
his mvestlment and labor. Yet he has
done a good thing for his neighborhood
and for the state. In a line, let us invite
immigrants by our acts as well as by
our words; and above all let us no longer
repel them with statutory threats of lines
for doing good to the state and to the
neighborhood In which they may cast their

Demand Made by Them for Brend or
ST. JOHN'S. N. F., Jan. 8. A mob of
unemployed men proceeded today to the
British cruiser Tourmaline, now in port
here, and a deputation representing them
interviewed the warship's captain, de
manding bread or work, and asking
whether he would prevent their obtaining
food by force. In reply, the captain prom
ised them that he would write to Gover
nor O'Brien and other executive authori
ties about their representations. He then
advised them to disporse, telling them to
return tomorrow, when he- would be pre
pared to give them an answer. On learn
ing what .the captajn had. said, the mob
dispersed.- If. however, work or food is
not forthcoming tomorrow, the conse
quences, it is apprehended, will be serious.
Governor O'Brien this afternoon gave
his assent to all the bills dealing with
financial questions which the colonial leg
islature has just passed. The bill remov

of bribery has been reserved for the Brit

arrival here of the steamer Silvia, from
Halifax, the Bank of Montreal officials
now here received $230,000 in specie, beside
paper sufficient to establish a circulation
of $1,000,000. Their bank opens a branch
house here Wednesday.
The Religions Iknuc Riftxed iu Some
TORONTO. Jan. 7. The municipal elec
tions today passed off quietly throughout
Ontario. In some constituencies the Prot
estant Protective Association conducted a
campaign on strict religious lines, but in
the great bulk this Issue was not raised,
publicly, at least. So far the results re
ceived indicate that the religious issue cut
no great figure. Some towns, villages and
rural communities report successes of the
Protestant Protective Association, but in
nine-tenths of the dispatches no mention
Is made of the organization as a factor. In
this city the campaign was brief, but act
ive and very exciting. Mayor Kennedy, a
candidate for a second term, was opposed
by ex-Mayor Fleming, the latter being de
feated last year by a majority of 45O0. He
made a vigorous raid this year on the in
activity of Mayor Kennedy, condemning
him for his failure to keep the promises
made prior to last year's election. So close
is the vote that at midnight the complete
returns give Mayor Kennedy a majority
of but 12 votes, and it may require an of
ficial recount before a decision is reached.
At Hamilton, last year, the protective as
sociation's candidate swept the city with

CLEVELAND, Jan. 7. There was sen

coroner's investigation of the mysterious
murder of General Passenger and Freight
Agent Caven, of the Valley road, which
occurred some time ago. Walter I. Shupe,
a well-known attorney, testified that he
knew Caven's murderer, and could put
his hand on him at any time. He refused
point blank, however, to give the name,
saying the party was his client. It was
brought out that Caven had been much in
the society of a married woman, whose
husband applied for a divorce on account
of the Intimacy. A man was employed to
watch the pair and obtain conclusive evi
dence, and wound Caven slightly, if pos
sible. The shot went to Caven's vitals, and
he died almost Instantly. Attorney Shupe

election and the council finally rejected
the extra amount caused by the double

Invented iu tSto by the late Dr. A. Johnson,
Family rhysician.. It has more than satisfied.
Tor nearly a, century the demand for it has
steadily increased. It is marvellous how many
different complaints aad diseases it will cure.
It is used and recommended by physicians
everywhere. It is unlike any other. It is
superior to any other. It is the great vital aud
muscle nervine. Trust what time has en
dorsed. Every Mother should have it 5a the
house, dropped on sugar suffering; children
love it. Its electric energy everlastingly erad
icates iufiammatim without irritation. Not
a. single medicine today possesses the con
fidence of the public to so great so. extent.
Athletes, swimmers especially, are more or
less liable to the cramp and chills, which vour
Liniment will most certainly relieve liy its
rapid action in restoring 'a healtliv cad lively
