League to Make No Choice Be
tween Parties if Amend
ment Is Not Fought.
E. A. Baker's Plan Is Indorsed by
Republican and Democratic
leaders Letter Outlines
Proposed! Agreement.
A plan proponed by E. A. Baker,
superintendent of the Anti-Saloon
League of Oregon, is that the dry
forces of the state pledge themselves
to strict neutrality between any and
11 parties and candidates on condi
tion that those parties and candidates
pledge a like neutrality as between the
wet and dry forces.
This plan, as submitted to the offi
cial party leaders, had received the in
dorsement of Bert K. Haney, chair
man of the Democratic state central
committee, and C. B. Moores. chairman
of the Republican state central com
mittee. While the executive commit
tee of the Progressive party has not
yet taken action, those prominent in
party councils have indicated their
opinion that the proposition is a fair
one and have said that they believe it
will be indorsed. W. 'S. U'Ren. inde
pendent candidate forOovernor. also
lias signified his approval, it is said.
Prohlbltloalsts Xot Anknl.
The letter embodying the proposal
t is not sent to the Prohibition party,
as it is its well-known policy to make
prohibition a party Issue.
According to the understandings as
outlined in the letter, the parties and
candidates are to pledge themselves
further that in case the "dry" amend
ment ts passed they will assist in pro
curing legislative enactment which
will make ample provision for the en
forcement of the law and provide ade
quate penalties to lnsuro enforcement.
Still another condition of the agree
ment t that the parties and candidates
further pledge themselves that In case
of the defeat of the proposed amend
ment they will not become party to
auy attempt to repeal existing laws on
the liquor question that have been
adopted by direct vote of the people.
Avoiding Prejudice Is Aim.
The Anti-Saloon League and the com
mittee of 10. it is announced, are very
desirous of keeping the question out
of partisan politics, realizing that there
are scores of thousands of people who
will vote for the amendment in all of
the parties and that many of these
might become prejudiced against the
amendment If the amendment forces
set themselves In array against their
Superintendent Baker points out that
similar plan was followed in West
Virginia two years ago, when prohibi
tion carried by 92.000 majority. He
claims that the majority was largely
made possible by the fact that the dry
forces did not oppose a single candi
date for any office.
Following the adoption of the amend
ment in West Virginia, the most drastic
regulation bill ever proposed In any
state passed the lower house unani
mously, and passed the Senate with
only one vote against It. Governor
Hatfield Immediately signed It.
Brewery Lawyer Keepa Pledge.
As an example of the working out of
the agreement, Mr. Baker cites the
fact that John P. Arbenz, an attorney
for a brewery, was a member of the
Legislature. He voted In committee to
recommend the strict regulatory meas
ure and voted for It in the House.
The letter which the Anti-Saloon
League has sent out In Oregon to the
state chairmen and state officers will
be followed up by similar letters to
the county chairmen and candidates for
the Legislature. It is probable that In
many counties the local organizations
will take similar steps to Insure neu
trality as between the county candi
dates and the assistance of the elected
officers in enforcing the law, provid
ing the amendment is adopted.
Letter Is Given.
The letter follows:
Portland. Or, July 23. Dear Sirs: The
Anti-Saloon League desires to come to an
Important understanding ith you.
We are a non-partisan body. Wo believe
that those aspiring to public office in your
party ure honorable enough not only to
runpect the will of tne people when ex
pressed, but to leuve the people free from
prejudice and pressure regarding a measure
When that measure is sot a partisan issue.
As a league we have but a single aim in
the niaaent nl it ssinirtiiliP' via.: to secure
the popular ratification of the non -partisan
Initiative constitutional amendment for
"Oregon dry." We desire a free and un
prejudiced expression hy the people on this
ouestlon. uncomplicated with other mess
tires, partv policies, or personalities of can
didates. We do not wish to secure a dry
ote beyond normal through the aid of any
party. We do not wish to be burdened with
the personality of any candidate.
We believe In the fair-minded public
spirit and political honesty of your party
nd Its candidates. We believe that if the
amendment is adopted you are ready to
pledge your aid In the legislative depart
ment in securing laws providing for Its
strict enforcement and fixing adequate pen
alties for its violation.
We believe, further, that you are ready to
pledge the co-operation of the administra
tive and executive departments (provided
you hold them) in making the law effect
ive: and. since the local option laws have
been secured by direct action of the people
themselves, we are confident that you will
not attempt, by legislative action, to re
peal them.
In order that we may defend that belief,
will you assure us from party headquar
ters, and through your candidates for state
offices and legislative offices, that this is
your position?
We shall observe strict neutrality as be
tween parties and candidates, so long as
they observe a like neutrality toward the
amendment. Tf the amendment is opposed
we shall fight, whether the opponent be
an Individual candidate or a political party.
Confusion defeats the purpose of popular
government, delays progress and injures
prosperity. Lt us come together In an
aereement to keep the air clear.
Awaiting your early reply, we are yours
very cordially. .

burdened with its immense yield," said
Mr. McMurray yesterday. "We expect
a big business in that country when
