PORTLAND. Or.. Oct an Trt
Editor A significant statement waa
maoe I lew days ago by the Southern
PacifldRailway Company, in its annual
report concerning the Oreernn rii.
fornialand errant. The report says "It
uieureaj company) will Insist upon
bbseitance of the conditions that the
full falue conferred by the granting
acts Is secured to It." The question
J henbresents itself: What embodies the
lull falue conferred upon the railroad
company by the granting acts? This
queiion is fairly determined by the
Supfeme Court decision. First: That
Jno Provisions of the original acts that
til d 8ha11 be sold to actual set
tlerfe In tracts of not to exceed 160
acrfes each, and for not to exceed 2.60
per acre," are enforceable covenants.
Second: That the legal title to that land
passed to the railroad company. Third:
That the railroad company took title
to this land burdened by a reservation
of4wer in Congress to fix rules and
regulations for the disposition of such
land in conformity with the original
, The foregoing are the primal and
controlling points of the entire de
cision. Such being the case, then what
will give the railroad the full value
conferred by the granting acts? It must
be conceded to be the enforcement of
those acts as interpreted V- the Su
preme Court decision. Then let us ana
lyze each of the propositions determined
by the court.
If the original covenants are enforce
sble covenants, as stated by the court,
then they can be enforced by the rail
road company as well as by the Gov
ernment. Kach party has a right to in
sist that the lands shall be disposed of
to actual settlers in tracts of 160 acres
each and at 2.D0 per acre. The Gov
ernmert has no right to dispose of It in
any otter manner, any more than the
railroad o paiiy has such right. The
primal object of the settlement of the
country, so there would be freight and
passengers to haul, in the territory
where the road was built, was evident
ly one of tho inducements entering into
tlio acceptance of tho grants, contain
ing those covenants, by the railroad
companf, It naturally follows, then,
that tho land must be disposed of in
conformity with the. original cove
nants. It can neither turn it over to
the state at ny agreed price nor can
the Government take it over and turn
it into a forest reserve without the
consent of the railroad company.
Our second proposition that the court
held that the railroad company took
legal title to the property, we think,
cannot bo seriously questioned. Such
being the case, then it must be ad
mitted the railroad is in position to
eay to the Government, "yes, you can
make rules for the disposition of such
lands, but only such as will reasonably
carry out the terms of those original
We come then to our third proposi
tion, i. c, that le railroad company
accepted the legal tltlo burdened with
the covenants, and with such reason
able rules and regulations as Congress
may enact for the disposition of such
lands in conformity with tHose cove
nants. Since the decision of the Su
preme Court relegated to Congress, the
establishing of rules and regulations
for the disposition of those lands in
conformity with the original covenants
It practically excludes every other
question. To inject other questions into
tho discussion only tends to confusion,
and defeats the efforts of the people
to place before Congress a proposition
that will conform both to law and gen
eral public policy.
But the railroad company in Its an
nual report seems to carry the impres
sion that the railroad got whatever
value was in the lands. Such was not
the case. It simply got the legal title
restricted in value to the company of
92. 60 per acre, together with such ben
efits as the company might derive
from a settlement o the country by
placing on each 160 acres of land sold
an actual settler... This does not carry
wth it the valuable timber and the
railroad company in its annual report,
though throwing out that inference,
did not liavo the temerity to make the
plain statement. Such a plain state
ment would not have created a favor
able impression and might have aroused
the people to a thoughtful considera
tion of the rights of the public in these
matters. H. L. GANO.

M cd ford Man Says Apple-Growers

MEDFORD. Or., Oct. 29. (To the
F.ditor.) -,ln a letter from New York to
Northwestern papers, dated October 8,
II. F. Davidson, of Hood River, has
unwittingly scattered broadcast the
opinion that he is an opponent of mar
keting apples at auction under any
circumstances. Mr. Davidson's letter
at most applied only to conditions ex
isting at this time. In a letter of re

Mr. Davidson, as well as any other
receiver likewise situated, must sell to

who deal in Northwestern apples in

retailers, who always buy in less than

MOTHERS MAY REMEDY EVIL
Children Should Be Taught to Oppose
DEB, Or., Oct. 29. (To the Edi
tor.) la answer to Mrs. F. D.'s
letter of October 20, "Motherhood
Losing Its Glories." This woman
despairs of motherhood, asking why a
woman should wish to bring a" child
into the world to be shot down as a
soldier, to be exploited by those In
power, or to be one of the army of un
employed. We cannot refute & word
she Bays; and is it not enough to make
us all despair? Yet. In spite of all,
we need, not, we must not. " despair.
Mothers should bring their children
into the world to remedy just such con
ditions. How? By teaching those very
same children that the object of life is
"tha cultivation of strength, intelli
gence and beauty, to promote justice
in the world and to foster the growth
and develoDment of human genius."
They should teach the sacredness of
life, that life is above all so-called
"honor" and "patriotism." that nothing
can be honorable or patriotic that is
not based on life. That to kill for
their country can never be right, can
never help their country, and but
makes their country a country of mur
derers; that to kill, take life, is al
ways murder; it makes no difference
whether the killing is done by Ger
man, Englishman, Russian, hangman.
Kaiser or King.
All truly great men and women
strive and live to give and to express
life; by life I mean the essence of life,
life in its highest. The fundamental
error of such men as Roosevelt, the
Kaiser and other like militant spirits
is that they think by killing others
that they give life, a greater life, to
themselves and to their country. Of
course, they think that the "others" are
all wrong. Each one of us has his owr
self, soul, to defend; killing another
is, must always be, the greatest and
deepest of all offenses against our own
self. Mothers should teach their chil
dren that it can never be a disgrace
to die, or even to be killed; death can
never lessen the greatness of a life,
but it is always wrong and therefore
a disgrace to kill. "Thou shalt not
kill" means, simply, thou shalt not kill,
without conditions or qualifications.
What right, in the name of God, or
common sense, has Roosevelt, or any
other man, or body of men, to kill a
German, a Turk, a Japanese, a'Mexican
or a negro, even if he has killed an
American? Are we Americans not
starving, enslaving and killing thou
sands every day with our political, eco
nomic, moral and even our so-called
religious laws? We need mothers that j
are big and brave and intelligent
enough to teach their children that tho
enemy within is by far more to be
feared than all of the enemies with
out. Let the mothers teach their chil
dren to "prepare" for the real self-defense,-to
defend their souls.
And now the half-way peace party,
the militant party, wants to add 3502,
482,214 to our country's burden; all to
be spent on killing machines, machines
that kill both body and soul. Yes,
yes! We need mothers, many mothers.
Spartan mothers, to teach their chil
dren the crime and folly of such things.
The greatness of life is the abund
ance of life that one has, and no na
tion can add to its greatness by killing
other nations, any more than a man can
add to his greatness by killing other
men. Rome tried it; Germany, the best
'prepared" nation in the world, today
is trying it. But better a Belgium than
a Germany. And even though Germany
wins in the present slaughter, unless
she turn about, she shall be cursed with
the curse of Rome.
The world never needed real mothers
more than it does today; mothers who
will open their eyes and study the
great vital questions of the day: Birth
control, self-control, the land question,
single tax. idealism, and the ways to
open up the unlimited resources of life,
the real wealth of nations. It is by far
more important to study and teach
these lessons of life to our children in
our public schools than it is to teach
them to shoot straignt, or even to walk
straight; teach them to live straight.
Teach them not to fear the other man's
acts, but to defend their own acts, that
is their responsibility, to defend their

Belief Expressed That Preachers Are
Back of Entire Movement.
PORTLAND, Oct. 30. (To the Edi
tor.) In The Oregonian appears an ar
ticle by R. G. D.; trying to make out
that ' Sunday laws are not religious
laws. Will R. G. D. explain why the day
he wishes to force on others happens
to be the first day of the week? Why
not Wednesday or Saturday? Why rest
one day before working six? Why not
work first, three or six days, and-then
rest? Is it not because some of the
preachers are behind these Sunday
laws? Can he explain why a certain
"Rev. is conspicuous at all these Sun
day law trials? Can he refer to any
Sunday law that is not fathered by
preachers? Can he refer me to one
single instance of a preacher, for the
sake of the poor, overworked people,
having backed a law which proposed a
rest for Saturday afternoon or any
other day than Sunday? Can he refer to
one single Sunday law which does not
refer to the first day as being "the
Lord's day"? Does he dare aver that
Kellahe the seller was more guilty

He says "if Wednesday were the
weekly holiday, some would claim that
it interfered with their religious lib

Where is his proof? Has anyone ever so
complained against closing at noon on
Sunday he says has "long been desig
nated as a day of rest." How long?
Since: what year? And before that date,
which was the day of rest? And for
how many years?
He says, "those who would work
should not Interfere ... with those
who rest." Did Kellaher's sales inter
fere with R. G. D.'s rest, or with
Roberts', who testified that he went
miles out of his way to spy on

equal terms," he says, "must perish."
God so loved the world that he gave
his Son, that whosoever believed on
him should not perish. But this man
so loves the world that those who do
not agree with him must perish.
The writer of the article woefully
mixes holidays with holy days for the
sake of carrying his argument. It is
optional to close or not on "holidays."
Most people do without being forced.
But it is not optional to close or not on
Sunday, the church day. R. G. D. and
his kind will see that we do or go to
jail. Yet his ancestors came to Amer

their descendant tries to take away

CANADA YET HAS MANY MBS
Visitor at Victoria Kinds Business Dull
but Not Depressed.
VICTORIA. B. C. Oct. 28. (To the
Editor.) As newspaper reports of con.
ditions in the countries at war at the
presertt time are rather unreliable, and
as I wanted to take a trip to Canada
I decided to start out and find out a
few things for myself, so I left Ps-t-
land and came first to Victoria, B. C,
where I am at the present time.
Business is naturally rather dull but
not depressed. Shipping is active, and
there is apparently a lot of traveling.
This city is a sinecure for the jitney,
as I believe there are more than .50
miles of the best paved ana laid ou
streets to be found anywhere. The
places of amusement are doing a, good
business, playing to full houses. 1 ht.
most noticeable feature to a stranger
here is the large number of soldiers to
be seen on the streets and in th
camps; they seem to be everywhere
and recruiting is brisk. There seems
to be no lack of young men willing to
join the Canadian .expeditionary
forces. This was impressed on me by
a circumstance that I have had proof
of with my own eyes. A Canadian of
ficer, recently returned from the front
after having been wounded in the
Srenches. obtained permission from the
Canadian Government to raise a regi
ment for overseas service, and ho im
mediately came to Victoria for that
purpose, and inside of three weeks had
the full number of men, over a
thousand, all equipped and officered.
When the first contingent went
away from here they were composed
mainly of young men from the city and
men close at hand. Now the men who
are used to living a more strenuous
life in the logging camps, mines, mills
are having a chance. I witnessed -a
parade of this regiment I mentioned
and was greatly surprised, as I was un
der "the impression before that most
of the young men had gone. No, they
have not all gone and it seems that
there are lots more to come. A num
ber of old soldiers, .old in experience
in military mattccs, not in age, are
coming back to the colors, and make
excellent instructors for the new men,
who quickly pick up the main essen

are men who, by their mode of living.

When I left the States I was not very
strong in favor of "the business men's
training camps," such as the one held
at Plattsburg for training Uncle Sam's
business men to be officers in case of
emergency, but since coming here I have
changed my notions. Nearly all the
officers of the different regiments here
are business men, and from the way
the men are disciplined, drilled and
equipped, it is evident that the busi
ness man makes a good officer. Of
course I mean a successful business

everybody seems bound together by
one common cause a sense of duty to
their mother country. Right here I
want to point out that in all my con
versations with civilians and soldiers
T have never heard one remark against
the individual enemy.
Maybe a few remarks on the wel
fare of the ordinary soldier would not
be amiss. They are well paid, getting
$1.10 a day for a private, well fed (I
can say that as I have eaten at their
tables a number of times) and well
clothed. Some of the Scotch regiments
here are equipped with their full
Scotch uniform, kilts, glengarries, etc..
which are expensive, and I have failed
to see any sign of stinting or close
economy in any of these things.
Before I close my remarks about the
soldier I would like to mention the
work of the Y. M. C. A. here, which has
a building in each of the barracks.
and which supplies books, stationery.

PORTLAND, Oct. 29. (To the Edi

the letter of W. II. Treece, as printed

a few suggestions as to carrying his

with now? One batch of hard times

that Democratic Administrations never

body everywhere knows it, hence, as the
people in 1896 rose up in arms and
turned it down, we should follow their
example in 1916 and turn them down

JACKRABBITS ARE DISEASED,
Sale In Portland Markets la Criticised
FORT ROCK, Or, Oct. 2S. (To the
Editor.) Why does the Portland City
Board of Health allow Jackrabbits to
be shipped to Portland for the poor,
unsuspecting people to eat? They talk
about keeping down disease and yet
they allow these diseased rabbits to
be shipped In there by the thousands.
People in Central Oregon will not
eat them. If people of Portland could
see them lying dead by hundreds as we
do, dying of disease, and see them
running about with sores on them they
would surely not eat them. Besides
much poison is used to -destroy them.
I surely hope when I go to Portland

SUNDAY OPEM.N'G IS. OPPOSED
Writer Says It Is Case of Greed, Not
PORTLAND. Oct. 30. (To the Ed
itor.) In the bugaboo over so-called
Sunday closing is not selfishness the
driving power? Instead of calling it
a Sunday closing law. let it be known
as a six-day-week law, and compelJ
every individual and firm to be con
tent with working and selling six days
in every week, whether it be Sunday
or Wednesday they observe.
Having been in the grocery business,
with confectionery annex, for 20 years
in a poor section of New York, I know
how would-be customers pester the
stoiekeeper to supply their wants, but
there is no sane reason why they can
not and will not get their supplies
Saturday or Monday, If storekeepers
have any principle and refuse to be
kept working seven days by selfish,
thoughtless adults and children. y
If the Sunday money cannot be spent
on Sunday because the store is closed,
be sure it will be spent on Monday.
Don't be sad over the notion that it
will be hoarded or put in the bank.
The attempt to monopolize every dol
lar in eight by working seven days in
the week needs to be curbed by law,
if necessary. With large numbers out
of employment, not able to get one
day's work. Is it fair that others should
insist on seven days' business and in
come? This is not a question of any real
need, but a question of greed. Some
folks want one day of rest and others
want to take advantage of their rest
day to get that much advantage over
them. Every one of us would be
healthier and happier and more pros
perous in every way if we observed
a six-day week, and in the interest
of a happier Portland, let us press the
crusade against those who aro unwilling-
to give any time for God or roan,
but whose motto is "In the dollar we
trust" FAIR PLAT.

' PORTLAND. Oct. 30. (To the Edi
torsCommenting on Mrs. Stoner's
methods of education, we are glad to
note the adverse criticism by Dr. J
Allen Gilbert as a qualifying sugges
tion. The live, companionable spirit
of older people with children is found
in every home, and a good teacher will
feed the child mind as he is best able
to receive. But the difficult tasks,
mental and physical, and a certain re
straint are necessary and desirable,
though always less important than
natural activity and spontaneous
growth. A WOULD-BE MOTHER.
CONVENTION BINDS MAN, TOO
"Miss Rom" Not Only One Who Is Un
able to Kind Mate.
PORTLAND, Oct. 30 (To the Edi
tor.) The contribution from the pen
of "Miss Rose" to the columns of The
Oregonian relative to "Finding the
"Home-Making Man" interested me,
and perhaps it Is not amiss to give the
man s views on the subject.
In the first place, the right-thinking
man is not impressed favorably by
either fine clothes or "street-walkers"
when looking about him for a mate.
for the former denotes extravagance
and the latter a lack of all the things
which are essential to the home-mak
I think every normal man wishes a
home and the love of a good woman
and children, but it seems just as hard
from his viewpoint to find a woman
who will measure up to his require
ments in the matter. There probably
are just as many lonely men as there
are lonely women, but the men are, of
course, not so hampered by convention,
and so are able to move more freely,
not being cooped up in a room after
However, these same men, if they
had their choice, would undoubtedly
much prefer the companionship of good
women to the aimless wandering that
they invariably indulge in, but they are
in a quandary as to the method of
procedure in observing the conventions
and yet meeting these women.
EVIDENCE BEING SOUGHT
POLICE COMB CITY FOR L ATE LODG
ING OF BURGLAR SUSPECT.
Grappler Brady Recovers "Jimmy"
From River, Where Thrown by Man
Caught Rifllns Trunk.
Portland police are combing the city
to find the late lodging of John
Macklin, caught rifling a trunk In the
Edel Brau Hotel Friday and captured
after a chase of several blocks by
Harbor Patrolman Gilliland, for they
believe that they have a dangerous
burglar in the person of Macklin.

seen to have thrown some articles, a
steel "jimmy" of latest and most effi
cient design, said by Police Captain
jsaty to De one or the finest yet found
on a burglar in this city. A bunch of
skeleton keys were found near the same
spot Friday, where they were thrown
Dy the running burglar.
Macklin was welL dressed, but every
mark of identification had been re
moved from his clothes. He admitted
that the name he gave was not his
true one, but said that it "would do"
and refused to tell the police whence
he came or where he had stayed since
he arrived in Portland. The detectives
hope, if his lodging is found, to re
cover many articles stolen.
