In his petition Mr. Stettler sets forth
tlifr f ollowlnr "reasons why- the -ruling
should no be enforced and, why the act
should, be. declared unconstitutional:
;. First -It deprive the plaintiff of "his
property find his liberty without due pr
any process .of tew.f Wr.r -Hj-fc
Becondt-It denies to plaintiff 1 the
equal protection of the Jaw. '
Third It provides for the taking of
the - property . of this plaintiff without
just or any .compensation, , , -
, . Fourth The? aot denies to and 'de
prives plaintiff of the right to have the
reasonableness of the order Judicially
reviewed and determined. V v't,V.;

Father E. V. O'Hara, chairman, and
Amedee M. Smith and Bertha Moorea,
members ot ' Industrial -Welfare com
mission, declare continued faith An the
constitutionality of the law. They are
as anxious for a determination of It
constitutionality, however, as are the
cemplainants. ' . Father O'Hara says that
19.64 'a' week was carefully ' determined
by a Conference committee as the least
a woman working irt "factory could live

.. .The oommisslon holds that' it doesn't
cost less to support a "woman worker,
if aha lives at' home, but merely that
part of the support must come from
other :. sources; and -.this makes .the in
dus'ry a parasite on the community.
Oregon was the first state to pass a
minimum Wag law.- California, Wash
ington, Minnesota and Wisconsin have
since enacted similar legislation, but
have made.no rulings, Father O'Hara
said this morning ,that he did not say,
as was stated in a morning paper, that
thd" minimum wage f of legislation of
other states ,1s dependent on the ruling
In vOregoa. r.V.t- U it, :.,..:'-ih-iv-v.
It is. however very probable that ef

constitutionality of the Oregon law from
the supreme court before the Industrial

, Circuit Judge T. 3. Cleeton said this
morning ' that ,to assure the speediest

the minimum wage law, because it. is
a matter . of great publlo importance,
the Stettler' case would be advanced on
the calendar and given precedence to
others nqtao pressing.. fi'I-iAf
v OoBualssloa to Flaa Defease.
, The Industrial' Welfare commission
will meet in its office In the Commercial
block tomorrow morning at 10 o'clocic to
plan its defense of the constitutionality
of the minimum wage law.
"I have no doubt of the constitution
ality of the law, and shall' be gla to
have It tested,",- said Father O'Hara,
chairman of the commission,- this morning..-:
"I cannot . tell. - not .having . seen'
the petition for injunction, ; Just what
line of defense It will be necessary to
employ, but tha complainants cannot be
more anxious than we for a decision
supporting the constitutionality of the
Jaw.", ' - - --i 1
61 believe the Jaw is constitutional,"
said Amedee M. Smith, member of the
commission- "I do not, believe Jt Inter
feres with the right of private contract.
It is the right of private contract to
say what; wages shall, be paid. and to
determine' the -value of ! aervice par
formed..' -"'C'j- t--t iiS.Vi

'"'."Tha rulings of the commission, do
not interfere with this right. We merely
say,; after recommendation has been
made by a conference committee, what
is the least a woman can earn and sup-;
port herself in comfort, health and de
cency; Private contract has no right to
ask a woman to work' for less than ahe.
needs to support herself in decency,
comfort and health.".- , v r ' '
"I have no doubts as to the constitu
tionality of , the law," said Bertha
Moores, third member of tha commis
sion, . "But ; the commission, the em
ployers and the employed will be all
better satisfied with a. decision uphold
