FIERCE IS ON DOWNGRADE
Refutation of Misstatements
BITTERNESS IS NOTED
jgh Feeling Is Caused by Injec
tion of School Measure
Into Political Battle.
After listening to the contradic
tory and confusing reports from all
parts of Oregon the impression
given is that the gubernatorial con
test is a horse race. More mixed re
ports have never been collected in a
political campaign in this state nor
has any previous contest been char
acterized by such bitterness and
rancor. This feeling . has been
aroused over the injection of the so-
called compulsory school bill meas
ure, which has broken party affili
ations. Looking at the registration fig
ures, if Walter M. Pierce can turn
60,000 republican votes next Tues
day to the democratic column he
will defeat Ben W. Olcott, repub
lican candidate for governor, pro
vided, also, he can hold the full
Wholesale Desertion Needed.
Unless the democratic nominee
can cause such a wholesale deser
tion from the republican' ranks
Pierce will fail of election. It is true
that many republicans avow, their
determination to vote for Tierce and
thousands of democrats are lined up
for Olcott. More republicans are
oolting their party than democrats,
aut Olcott can lose a far greater
percentage than Pierce and still
The silent vote will elect the gov
' rnor. r. . , ...
" "As an of fset to the desertions
Trom the democratic party. Pierce
has gained the backing of the Ku
Klux Klan and the Oregon Federa
tion of Patriotic Societies. There is
an expressed desire on the part of
many substantial citizens to see Ol
cott elected because of the preju
dicial advertising Oregon would re
ceive throughout the United States
if it was believed that the Ku Klux
Klan had elected an Oregon gov
ernor. Suspicion Is Aroused.
Mr. Pierce obtained this support
by pledging himself to the school
bill, but his failure to stress the
measure in his speeches has recent
ly caused his sincerity to be viewed
with suspicion, particularly among
the voters of the federation.
The campaign utterances of Pierce
have been a series of misstatements
and exaggerations and as fast as
one of his misstatements has been
nailed and exposed he has followed
it with another equally without
foundation. He has played the
farmer against the city man "and
appealed to latent prejudices. He
has undertaken to capitalize dis
satisfaction' with local taxes and, by
inference at least, has promised to
reduce taxes 50 per cent. He has
(not told his audiences that most of
the taxes were voted by ;the people
and that a governor has little con
trol over taxation.
i Tax Reduction Need Cited.
The Olcott campaign has consisted
In showing that two years ago Gov
ernor Olcott, in his message, point
ed out the need of tax reduction and
, appointed a committee to make
scientific survey and report its
recommendations at the 1923 legis
lature. This committee has a con
Crete plan for tax reduction. As
member of the committee, Poerce,
appointed by Governor Olcott. has
tried to steal the governor's thunder.

PELLETIER CASE CITED
Appeal to Intolerance Becomes
Nation-Wide Political Asset
in Campaign for Office.
BY MARK SULLIVAN.
(Copyright 1922 by the New Tork Evening
Post, Inc. Publish by Arrangement.)
- WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 4. The
generally prevailing mood of the
country probably will not be ex
pressed at the election next Tues
day. Only in a few states or commu
nities is there any opportunity for
its expression. It is a. mood that is
equally distrustful of both the old
parties. So far as it expresses itself
by voting democratic, it will do so,
not because it loves the democrats
nuore, but for the satisfaction of ex
pressing anger at the party that
is in. '
It is a mood that is truculent to
ward both the old political parties,
toward all political leaders, and to
ward most of the other accepted
leaders and exponents, of . public
opinion. Wherever there is a third
party or a so-called radical running
on one of the old party tickets, this
mood will express itself joyously
and heartily by voting for the radi
cal. Economic Inequalities Resented.
Part of this mood Is resentment
over economic Inequalities. Therj
is no angrier man in the country
than the western farmer who has
lost money this year, who must bor
row money to pay his taxes, who in
many cases must let his potato crop
rot in the ground, because the price
will not justify his digging them,
and who at the same time sees the
city hodcarrier and bricklayer and
the common laborer getting any
where from $6 to $12 a day. And
this farmer's suspicion that he is
being exploited by some subtle and
Invisible combination is increased
when, in many cases, he sees these
prices paid for common labor in the
building of roads, for which roads
the money comes to a large extent
out of the farmer's taxes.
Wanton extravagance on the part
of state governments, and city and
county governments, especially in
the field of building automobile
roads, is one of the clearest causes
of the general feeling of' distrust
the farmer has against all poli
ticians. Pelletier Case Is Illustration.
Because it is so conspicuous an
illustration of a kind of mood which
appears sporadically in several dif
ferent parts of the country, it will
be worth while to describe the Pel
letier case a,t some length. '
Pelletier was the district attorney
of Boston. Charges were made
against him. The charges were very
odious. They were to the effect
that he had failed to prosecute a
considerable, number of crimes of a
particularly distasteful, sort. They
were, in many cases, crimes involv
ing women in illicit relations, the
sort of thing which the parties con
cerned were especially anxious to
The charges against Pelletier went
much further than mere allegations
that he had failed to prosecute these
crimes. There were implications to
the effect that the immunity of
many of the criminals was due to
the fact that they were represented
by a lawyer who made somewhat of
a specialty of this kind of case, and
who, politically and personally, had
such relations with the district at
torney that he was able to get im
munity for his clients.
The charges against Pelletier, in

Newspaper Men Puzzled as to
Whereabouts of Bride-to-Be
of , ex-Emperor William.
DOORN, Holland, Nov. 4. (By the
Associated Press.) Where Is Her
mione? This question is agitating the
newspaper men here who are en
gaged in unraveling the tangled
preliminaries of tomorrow's wed
ding, in which the Princess of Reuss
will become the bride of ex-Emperor
William of Germany.
-Scores of journalists today were
vainly scouring the countryside In
automobiles and watching all likely
points for the arrival of the princess.
, While one report on excellent
authority was that Hermione was at
Amerongen, the former residence of
the kaiser, other infdrmati6n was to
the effect that she would arrive late
tonight at Amersfoort, whence she
would motor to Doom house, stay
ing for the night in the lodge which
stands before the castle under the
guardianship of the aged pastor
The ex-kaiser, according to this
story, took supper tonight at the
lodge and will breakfast with the
princess tomorrow morning.
The organist Koornhoff, who
plays every Sunday at Doom house,
will provide the wedding music
during the religious ceremony. The
organ in Doom house being in a
bad condition, Koornhof has had
his own instrument removed to the
vestibule of the castle. The Prince
of Reuss, Prince Eitel Friedrich,
Prince Feurstenberg and Dr. Vogel
The ex-German emperor and
Princess Hermione will be married
by the burgomaster of Doorn, Baron
Schimmel-Pennik, in the presence of
six witnesses, two of them Germans
domiciled in Holland, and soon after
ward Court Chaplain Vogel will give
the benediction of the Lutheran rite
to the union. '

While Crossing Range.
DAYTON, O., Nov. 4. (By the As
sociated Press.) jAfter tlfundering
their way three-fourths of the dis
tance across the United States, from
San Diego to Indianapolis, through
storms and calm, darkness and light,
aboard 'the monoplane T-2, Lieuten
ants John A. Macready and Oakley
G. Kelly relaxed tonight after their
hazardous trip and related incidents
of their record-breaking non-stop
flight of 2060 miles.
The aviators were forced to land
at Indianapolis at 9:47 o'clock this
morning after they had exhausted
their water supply owing to a
broken line. They borrowed a plane
and flew to Dayton this afternoon.
Goal Only 700 Milea Away.
Had they traveled approximately
700 miles further they would have
succeeded In their attempt to cross
the continent without stopping.
Macready and Kelly, however, are
not disappointed, for their flight
demonstrated that a coast-to-coast
flight is possible, they declared.
The lieutenants broke the world's
non-stop distance record of 1936
miles, made by the late Captain Jaclt
Alcock and A. W. Brown in their
flight across the Atlantic ocean from
New Foundland to Ireland, accord
ing to records in aviation circles.
Fliers Battle Storm. .
In giving to Major Bane their first
official report of the flight, the air
men revealed that during their
nearly 30 hours In the air they were
in the midst of a storm and rain
for 11 hours and 30 minutes.
In crossing the mountains the
wind was so strong that it threat
ened several times to turn their ship
"At various times I thought the
end was near," "Lieutenant Kelley
said. "I can safely say that two
men never were nearer death than
when the high winds in the passes
of the Rockies tossed us about like
a toy. ,
"At one time we were flying
smoothly at an altitude of 6800 feet,
when suddenly a cliff loomed in
front of us. I began to guide the
ship to avoid crashing, and by. a
mere chance I was successful in
scaling the. top of a precipice, by
about three feet.
Motor Found Too Hot.
"Our first intimation of real trou
ble came when we noticed the water
leak while passing over Kansas.
"We made every effort to keep
our radiator cool by. using up our
reserve supply of water, and jock
eyed until we reached Indianapolis.
There we made a final inspection of
the ship and found that the mdtor
was so hot that it would not permit
us to go farther. We made the
landing' without trouble."
Disappointed, but not discouraged,
by their failure to finish the might
to New York, both fliers indicated
that they want to repeat the at
tempt from San Diego if the war de
partment will give its consent.
Lieutenant McReady, replying to
a question, said that although in the
air 32 hours as against 25 on the
flight ending today, the recent en
durance flight over San Diego was
not' nearly so nerve-wracking as the

SALEM, Or., Nov. 4. (Special.)
In response to a newspaper adver
tisement, some unidentified person
left a nine-months-old baby on the
front porch at the home of Mrs. Al
French, 1545 South Cottage street.
The baby was intended for Mr.
and. Mrs. Jesse French of Grand
Rondo, Lane county, who recently
advertised for a child to adopt, re
questing that the 'infant ba left to
night at the home of Mr. French's
mother in this city.
The child arrived about 10 P. M.
and was found when Mrs. Jesse
French, who was at the house for
the night, answered the doorbell. It
was wrapped in a blanket and was
dressed daintily. A quantity of well-
made clothing was found with the
Also there was a note saying' that
th baby's name was Maxine Brady,
and that she had been adopted by
a Mr. and Mrs. Brady who had since
separated. The date of her birth
was given as January 13, 1922, but
the place of birth was not men
Mr. and Mrs. French decided to
call the baby Zell Frances. She has-
black eyes and hair, and seemed
well pleased with her new home.
Mr. French is foreman ' of a saw
mill at Grand Ronde and Mrs.
French is, a teacher in the public
It was not considered likely that
the authorities would try to trace
the parentage of the child, inasmuch
as Mr. and Mrs. French had adver
tised for it. Mrs. French said she
heard someone run from the porch
as she answered the doorbell, but
she was not able to see whether it
was a man or a woman.

geese, pigeons and rabbits. The
other favorites of the young visitors
included the two world champion
cows, Prospect, the Holstein milker,

Prospect's greatest record was
37,381 pounds of milk in 365 days.
Lad's Iota produced 1049 pounds of

For the more serious business of
