OREGON VOTERS WILL
PASS ON PROPOSAL TO
OPEN THE BREWERIES
Constitutional Amendment to
Bi Submitted at the Gen--e'ral
Election in November.
REASONS ARE OUTLINED
nn, ! It Is Argued, Would Promote
Tm;ruoe by Hednclng Consnmp
r iton of Strong Spirit Liquor.
A proposed amendment to the state
constitution which would permit the
manufacture of beer In Oregon for
shipment outside and allow Its Kale
within the state subject to the limita
tions of the present prohibition law
lias been launched In Portland and will
-be submitted to the voters of the state
through the Initiative for adoption or
rejection at the general election In
-Several hundred signatures have
been secured to a statement outlining
the jcasoris for his move, chief or
which are the money being sent out of
the state for alcoholic liquors and the
loss Of payrolls incident to the brew
eries of the state being Idle.
, Xelates Only to Beer.
. ( Ths proponed amendment has to do
.With beer only, the lid being kept on
: the nftanufacture of any beverage con
" talnlng in excess of four per cent of
,'( Backers of the proponed amendment
.have Issued the following statement:
'Wei, the undersigned, feel that there
Is lack of logl'-'. even from a prohiul
tlon point of view, in allowing beer and
Intoxicating liquor to he lirought into
the Mate, yet to forbid the inanufuct
ur of beer In the state. We have un
dertaken to put on the ballot an
, amendment, giving to the Oregon
farmer, hopgrower and brewer an
'..equal right with the outsider.
j. Seasons for Amendment.
.. We have constituted ourselves a gen
eral committee favoring this amend
ment, and submit to tne public our
-'reasons as follows:
'' First A law which permits the con
sumption of liquor brought Into the
state from the outside, yet discrimi
nates against even a light beer made
In Oregon, from Oregon barley and
hops, fa neither logical nor jimt and
'seems to gnawer no good purpose
Second We believe It Is not even
; good temperance reform because It in-
evitMbly encourages the Importation of
the Strong spirituous liquors on which
transportation charges are leBS and
discourages the use of a light, non-tn-,
toxicaung malt liquor. in other
words, it forces a consumption of
whiskey Instead of a consumption of
., . j Drives Money Out of State.
Tfcird It drives thousand of dol
'. lars out of the state, which If beer
drinking Is to be permitted at all, hai
.better go to Oregon barley and hops.
Fourth We feel that tiie true meas
ure iof regulation ought always to be
,'. based on the amount of the drug alco
, hol contained in any drink. It seems
'.to Us not scientific, nor In the cause
, Of true temperance to place beer in
' exactly the same category with whis
ker: and other spirits. We think that
' the real evils are the saloon and spir
ituous liquors, but thin amendment
does not open up the general question
Or the general policy. It goes no fur
, ther than to place the home Industry,
as to' beer, on the same footing wltn
1 ( Amount of Alcohol Limited.
' Fifth By this amendment the
amount of alcohol permitted Is not in
excess of 4 per cant. This is practical
ly as low as beer can be brewed and
keep. We believe and we think the
, ; general world agrees that such a bev
,: ersge Is not an intoxicating liquor.
.Sixth It is our opinion, based on
thel experience of Germany and the
great temperance reforms made in
Denmark, Sweden and Norway, by en
couraging the brewing of Juat such a
light Deer as here proposed, that this
. amendment will really promote both
temperance and moral Integrity. This
la one of our strongest motives.
Those who'are interested anil have
time, men or women, are asked to vol
unteer as circulators of the petition,
but no money will he paid for secur
ing names. Any suggestions In the
public interest will be welcome.
Address all communications to C. T.
Haas secretary. 20rt Stock Exchange

shows renewed desire on the part of

There is need now, concluded the
executive secretary of the Chamber of
Commerce, for Portland to take seri

industrial enterprises and should be
prepared to back upthe industrial
financing company soon to be organ
