T. JOHNS, Or, Sept. 27. (Special.)
I City ""Attorney Parker, Who
drafted the motion picture ordinance
for St. Johns, which recently passed

nature of an experiment. The commis

Parker today, "whether the censorship

Governor West Assails Repub

By direct inference Governor West

This latest and most startling "policy"
of Oregon's chief executive was made
before a considerable crowd which had
gathered at the Armory to hear what
was advertised as "a plain talk on plain
facts to the plain people."
The speech which the Governor was
to deliver was also heralded In the ad
vance press notices as "a message
which would interest the working men
and women of Portland deeply."
Mr. West condemned Dr. Withycombe,
Senator Booth, State Treasurer Kay,
C. N. McArthur and The Oregonlan, dis
tributing his diatribes with absolute
mpartiality through a two-hour speech.
He dragged dead men from their
shrouds and put words of hearsay Into
their mouths to defame the living.
Nothing was faithful, nothing true. In

George E. Chamberlain these and A. F.

Respects Paid Hanley, Too.
William Hanley came in for a small
share of the mud-flow which covered
the Republican candidates.
But the high-tide in the Governor's
speech came near the close, when he
was discussing the problem of caring
for the unemployed. The speaker ad
mitted that he did not know the solu
tion, but he said that lf he had enough
money he would give all the idle men
in Oregon Jobs this Winter.
Referring to his plan to have the
state do this, Mr. West said that he
was criticised by The Oregonlan last
Winter when he came from Salem to
Portland to see what he could do to
relieve the situation here.
'The Oregonlan said at that time,"
he declared, "that what we ought to
do was to take the militia and round up
the unemployed and have them squeexe
the water out of the mud.
'Now whoever would say a thing like
that somebody should take them by
the necks and squeeze them until nearly
all the breath Is -out of their bodies."
Vitriolic Denunciation Heard.
Pausing and taking his own breath.
Mr. West added that the task should
not be left uncompleted, and that the
persons who would make such a re
mark as tbat to which he referred, hav
Ing been totally deprived of breath.
should "roast in the fires of hell, with
Booth's timber and the files of The
Oregonlan for fuel."
Mr. West opened his speech by an
elaborate and intricate defense of his
prison policy. He followed this with
an attack on State Treasurer. Kay, to
whom "reactionary" was the mildest
epithet applied. Then C. N. McArthur
was reviled as turncoat Democrat, who
had never done a day s work in his
life." Next came Gus Moser, on whom
the Governor's attacks were purely
personal. Lair Thompson, of Lakevlew,
also came in for a few rapid and rabid
Skipping rapidly from name to name,
and leaving a trail of vituperation in
his wake, Mr. West came to R. A.

criticised because of having made
money in Oregon timber.
Reapeeta Paid Lawmakers.
Mr. West defended his use of the veto
and declared against Dr. Wlthycombe's
proposed policy of harmony between the
Governor and the Legislature.
Harmony would mean, he asserted.
that Dr. Withycombe would take a
drink with a member of the Senate
