Judge Morrow Decides That
Under Present Laws He
Cannot Act on' Parole.

District Attorney Explains Attitude
us Supporting Jurists' Right to
Amend Sentence at Time
E. C. Herlow surrendered himself
Into the custody of Sheriff Hurlburt to
serve a term of from one to 10 years,
and the constitutionality of the entire
parole law was brought into question
hv Circuit Judge Morrow yesterday
morning, when he decided that he had
no right to hear the application of
Herlow for a parole.-
"After conviction the Governor ia
given by law the sole power to grant
pardons, reprieves or commutations."
said Judge Morrow. "Under the ruling
of Federal Judge Wolverton this year
holding that a parole is in fact a com
mutation of sentence, the conclusion
seems to follow that the power con
ferred on the Governor does not belong
The validity of the entire parole law

low case, contended Judge Morrow.
"He annihilates the whole parole

commented the Jurist.
Laws Are at Tartaaeo
Judge Morrow asserted that even if
It were assumed that the law passed
by the 1911. Legislature conferring
upon the trial Judges the right to
parole one convicted of crime was a
valid act. Its effect was practically
destroyed by another act of the same
Legislature, passed two days later,
creating the Parole Board of the state
of Oregon. In it the parole power or
Judges-was limited to the period of
time before the defendant is committed
to serve the sentence for the crime.
A "commitment" was held by the
Judge to mean a certified copy of the
order Imposing sentence. Consequent
ly, the Judge contended, wnen use

ant convicted of crime, it thereby com
mitted him for his offense. The
parole law gives the Judge power to

been turned over to the warden of the
I do not wish to appear In the light
of one who wishes to do away with the
parole system in the courts." said Mr.
Evans yesterday, following the deci
sion in the Herlow case, which was a
signal victory for his office. It Is an
excellent law if properly adminis
tered. It is an abuse, however, to
permit the granting of a parole long
after sentence has been pronounced
and the case disposed of.
Preaeeator'a Stand Explained.
The stand of the District Attorney,
as set forth in the argument by Deputy
District Attorney Arthur Murphy, yes
terday morning, is that the court has
the power to grant a parole "at the
time sentence is pronounced," but at
no subsequent period.
A parole granted after the sentence
has been pronounced is considered a
commutation the substitution of a
lesser penalty. A parole given at the
time of sentence is viewed by the Dis
trict Attorney as a proper part of the
sentence and not as a commutation.

sat a small man. well dressed and of
serious mien. He wore a short,
clipped mustache and glasses. It was
Herlow. Behind him sat Deputy Sher

man as soon as the hearing was over.
At the conclusion of the argument,
and when Judge Morrow had admit
ted that he was powerless to keep
Herlow from the penitentiary, the
shadowed man walked quietly from the
courtroom and gave himself into the
hands of Sheriff Hurlburt. The toner-

man into custody, as he held a com

ROOTERS AT GAME DANCE

Basketball suddenly became an ex

that there would be dancing before,
after and between the halves of the
timta. R. iD. Leigh, instructor in
political science, furnished the dance
music playing college songs and
popular music on the gymnasium piano.
The results of the games were two
victories at the expense of the

which will again be the medium of his
expression when he returns to the
Heilig next week.
At the close of that, the most suc
cessful season of his long and inter
esting career. Mr. Whiteside went to
London, accompanied by Mrs. White
side and their daughter, Rosamond,
primarily for recreation and inci
dentally in search of a new play. While
there Israel Zangwill proposed that the
American star appear in "The Melting
Pot." supported by an English com
pany, and after much persuasion Mr.
Whiteside accepted the author's proposition.
Mr. Zangwill leased a theater, en
gaged a company and with hardly more
than the mere announcement of the
opening in the newspapers, a crowded
house greeted the American player. His
success was electrical. The critical
writers were extravagant in their
praise of Mr. Whiteside's work, and
declared that the beauties of the Zang
will play had not been revealed in
performances given in London when
the play was presented there some time
The engagement continued, although
the exigencies of theatrical booking
made it necessary to movo to another
theater, until shortly before war was
declared, and Mr. Whiteside enjoys the
distinction of being the only American
actor who ever recorded both an
artistlo and pecuniary success in the
Mr. Whiteside's career as an Ameri
can actor has been most Interesting.
Though a great artist, he has been
handicapped in the keen fight for rec
ognition by a gentleness of breeding
and a modesty of character which are
ill-fitted for the struggle for theatrical
supremacy. This has been his mis
fortune rather than his fault. The
actor or actress who hopes for finan
cial success nowadays realizes that
only a small proportion of the Ameri
can public is endowed with tasteful
appreciation or discrimination in re
gard to dramatic art.
But the very modesty that has
hitherto been deemed a detriment to
Mr. Whiteside in his struggle for
recognition has proved a mighty factor
in making for his great success. When
he finally found in "The Typhoon" a
play worthy his best efforts and hav
ing a tremendous and vital appeal, he
was everywhere acclaimed not only the
most American, but one of the best of

About four years ago the Fisch

The Council at the same time voted to

for the substitution of Bull Run water,

Leaders Believe Day Has Arrived
for Party to Stand on Its . Own
Platform to Advance Other
' Principles Than Prohibition.
"Th . important thing for us to do
now Is to hold our own people and
keep In them the enthusiasm for work
ing in the prohibition cause, for really
we have only begun he fight in Ore
gon with the passage of the prohibition
law," declared J. banger Fox. executive
secretary of the Oregon prohibition
state committee at the conference of
the committee at the Y. M. C. A. yes
terday. "Too many of our people have got
'cold feet' or lost interest since the
prohibition law carried. This loss of
interest shows in the scanty attendance
at this meeting. We have 16.000 reg
istered prohibitionists in the state and
4000 in Portland. Before this meeting
600 telephone reminders were sent out
to families in this city, and yet the
attendance at this conference today has
been a handful.
"I sent 77 letters out over the state
a short time ago, and up to date I have
received only seven answers. Those 77
were not the rank and file,, but repre
sented the very pick of our active
workers in the prohibition cause.
"And those seven letters that came
liv answer, out of the 77 sent, were
full of pessimism."
Registration Declared Essential.
Bruce Wolverton. Acting chairman of
the committee, also emphasized the
need for continued activity to follow
up and clinch the successes - already
vThe fight has only begun. We must
sustain this prohibition law by putting
in office men who will see that it is
enforced and respected." he said. "Be
cause the passage of the law has been
achieved is no reason for prohibition
ists to neglect to register and to al
low their active interest in the work
"It is the duty of every prohibition
ist to keep alive his interest and con
tinue the work until all has been done
that ought to be done." -
L. H. Suter said that the prohibi
tion platform must be extended to
cover other subjects besides prohibi
tion. He suggested that the actual sub
ject of prohibition should be sub
ordinated and the public made to re
alize that the party stands for other
important reforms besides prohibition.
Party Secession Is Advocated.
E. E. Taylor, and. In fact, practically
all of the speakers, were earnest in
their expression that the prohibition
ists should cut themselves off utterly
from affiliation with other parties and
make their fight in the elections on
their own strength.
"We have been fooled too long by
the old parties. We must nominate our
own officers and have tnem in me
field before the primaries in May," said
A resolution was adopted providing
for the holding of a prohibition state
convention on April 15.
