Stand Taken by the Federal Gov
ernment in Kcgard to Disloyal
Utterances by Press Is
Vn reply to an insinuating editorial
that appeared in the final issue of
the Oregon Deutsche Zeitungr, preced
ing the appearance of its suc cessor, the
Portland American, In which all news
and editorial comment is to be printed
exclusively in Knglish, Clarence I.
Jtames, United States Attorney, has
written a letter to the editor of the
publication in which he explains the
stand of the Government in regard to
lie also calls attention to the fair
ness with which the Government has
treated German citizens. In this con
nection he points out that of more than
800 requests for permits by Germans,
only four were denied. Extracts from
the letter follow:
"In the last issue of the Deutsche
Zeitung, the statement is made edi
torially that notwithstanding the re
peated utterances of President Wilson
that American citizens of German de
scent are loyal and that they will be
treated fairly, they have been perse
cuted. You charge that the utterances
of the German-American press have
been twisted and distorted and that
wrong translations of German editor
ials have been made: that although the
column in your paper entitled, 'The
Amateur Detective has been fair to
the Government. I, as an officer of the
Government, have demanded the Intern
ment of Max Lucke, the author of the
column. Finally, it is charged that on
account of a threat of this office the
paper will hereafter be published
entirely in Knglish.
(rnnani Treated Kalrly.
"So that all of your readers may
understand just the manner of treat
ment being accorded to German-Americans,
I will state that out of over 800
applications for permits presented to
this office, there were four instances
in which the applications were denied.
In every case a personal examination
was made into the facts and with
painstaking care we saw to it that no
advantage was taken of a man simply
because he was of German birth or !
German parentage. j
"Had governmental officers been 1m- i
bued with the idea of causing em-
barrassment to or harassing persons '
of German birth or parentage, so large
a number of permits would not Have
been issued and a greater number
would have ben denied. In many in
stances permits, were granted to men
who had been recently officers and
privates in the German military and
naval forces. These permits were is
sued to these men upon their assurance
that they would not abuse the hospi
tality of America."
Offender Merely Warned
Calling attention to the fact . thaf
under the President's proclamation,
every unnaturalized German who com
mits a crime may be interned for the
period of the war, Mr. Reames says
every possible consideration has been
shown such persons so no hardship
will be visited upon them. In most
cases that have come before his office,
he says, the offender has merely been
warned not to repeat the offense, 1r
vtoad of being interned.
He declares further that many cases
have been brought to his attention
whore unnaturalized Germans have at
tacked the policies of the United
states. Yet the offenders in nearly
all these cases have been called to
the office without publicity, the matter
has been talked over with them and
they have been warned and permitted
to go their way without punishment.
"f the column in the Zeitung ridi
culing the part of the United States
In t he war and railed "The Amateur
Selective," Mr. Keames says:
Lucke Repeatedly Warned.
"Tho column in your paper entitled,
The Amateur Detective' was pub
lished by Max Lucke, an unnaturalized
German. Mr. Lucke was warned three
times relative to his conduct by this
office. The column was utterly dis
loyal, unpatriotic and & daily sneer
ing comment upon the efforts of the
Government to suppress sedition.
Kroin the outset it appeared to this of
fice that your newspaper should not,
under any circumstances, have permit
led an unnaturalized German to be the
Author of a column in your paper criti
cizing the conduct of the war. Not
withstanding three repeated warnings,
the disloyal column was continued.
Lurk was then called to the office
and told that I would make an applica
tion for an order of internment and
that he would have three days time
in which to submit his defence to the
Attorney-General. One of the friends
of Mr. Lucke, to whom he related the
incident, gave the story to the even
ing papers and in this manner it was
P it bit .shed. It wan not given out by
this office at all and would not have
been given out unless the order of in
ternment had been made.
Cear Statement Made.
"As a result of my interview with
Mr. Lucke. the attorney for the German
Publishing Company called upon me
and asked me for a statement of my
position, which I frankly gave him. He
asked me what my position would be
in the event the newsDaper were pub
lished entirely in Knglish. and I told
him that this would be considered as
an evidence that the Deutsche Zeitung
did not desire to continue its past
policy. I also told him that in the
event the Zeitung continued in its dis
loyal methods I would attempt to so
cure an order denying to the paper the
use of the I nited States mails.
I also told your attorney that In my
opinion no unnaturalized German
liould be employed upon a paper such
as the Zeitung. This stat ement re
sulted in a visit to my office of Mar
tin Duedel and Jacob Jackie, to whom
I fully explained my position and told
them that in my opinion they should
quit the employ of the Zeitung. and I
promised to secure them other employ
ment in the city w hich would be just as
remunerative and concerning which
there could be no question raised as to
their loyalty to th Government. This
I Intend to do, so t hat no possible
hardship can be visited upon these two
"In the event your newspaper sup
ports our country in the war against
Germany we-will have no quarrel with
it. Every citizen of German birth nd
heritage. every German institution
will receive a square deal, but this of
fice will not permit in this district dis
loyal or treasonable utterances to pass
unnaucea or unpunished.

UNUSUAL interest centers in the
local appearance of May Cloy,
who Is featured . in thn Kolb &
Dili production of "The High Cost of
Loving which comes to the Heilig
next Sunday night for a week's engagement.
Miss Cloy Is a Portland girl of great
beauty and personal fcharm, and her
wedding a few months ago to William
Kolb was a great event in San Fran
cisco theatrical circles. She is a tal
ented dancer and her solo specialty in
the production is one of its attractions.
. Another principal in the company is
Lucille Chalfonte. a California maid,
who is being hailed, as a .coming Tet-fc
razzlni. Her voice has amazed critics
and as- she Ah Rtill very young a big
career Is predicted for her. Miss Chal
fonte's singing is one of the features
n "The High Cost of Loving." One of
the all-Important features of the show,
the orchestra, presents something en
tirely different In the way-of Its or
chestration. In doing this Kolb and
Dill have set the musical world agog
by their unusual -and daring treatment
of syncopated music. In order to show
how far tney have gone out of the
beaten path, they have the carrying of
a ragtime orchestra. The list includes
banjo, saxaphone, marlamaphone, along
with the usual brass, strings, drum,
Frank - Mande!, a California play
wright whose works have been the
most successful on Broadway, among
them being "Our "Wives." "Trifling
With Tomorrow," "Sherman Was
Right" and others, is the author of
"The High Cost of Loving," in which
Kolb and Dill, inimitable comedians,
are starring on their present tour.
That it is their funniest vehicle is the
unanimous verdict-of all who have wit
nessed the play, and that it is the most
successful is best evidenced in the fact
that the comedians broke theatrical
records In San Francisco with a run of
14 weeks, which was followed by an
other five weeks' run in I,os Angeles.
The plot of "The High Cost of Lov
ing" deals with four very much domes
ticated men who, for 25 years, have
been blackmailed by a dancer, each be
lieving himself the father of the
dancer's child. Situations that bring
about roars of laughter develop fast
and furiously when the four men, who,
by the way, are Purity League mem
bers, are appointed a committee to In
vestigate the blackmail scandal.
Supporting Kolb and -Dill, beside Miss
Cloy and Miss Chalfonte. are such
capable artists as Julia Blanc. Henry
Shumer, A. C. Van Slyke. Leo Kenning,
Lorenzo Gillette, Lavinia Winn and
Honora- Hamilton. A gorgeously
gowned chorus comprised of soloists
of surprising ability punctuate the
play with catchy musical numbers. A
ragtime orchestra in which Charles
Seiger. a trap drummer, is featured is
one of the novelties of the performance.

But the political iniiuence of Mr.
Keady was not confined entirely to this
state. When th- first Washington
Legislature organized at Olympia in
18S9, Mr. Keady was In attendance as
a representative of the railroads with
which he had been associated since
coming to Oregon. Through his efforts
the attempt to obtain the enactment
of a radical anti-trust law was de
feated. This measure was directed particu
larly asrainst the railroads, but Mr.
Keady succeeded in enlisting sufficient
votes to kill the bill when he con
vinced the legislators that the adoption
and enforcement of such legislation
would only prove inimical to the best
interests and development of the young
and growing state.
Railway Route Obtained.
Shortly after arriving in Oregon Mr.
Keady became identified with various
enterprises for promoting its develop
