la Defense of the League -Oakland.
Or., March 11. To the Edit
or of. The JournalIn response to
Charles L. Blanchard's letter to The
Journal of March 7. "In which he de
fends those who oppose the League of
Nations and states that the people are
not behind the president and points to
the last election as proof that they are
not, not doubting; his rood Intentions, I
want to car that if those obstructionist
. senators who oppose the lea rue had
said so when , the president stated the
war alms of America and the allies, and
had flven their aims and shown where
they were better than his. they might
t now talk, and people would think them
more sincere. But they didn't. They
never said a word until the war was
won.;And now they come with a bold
face,' try to embarrass the president at
every turn, and throw cold water on all
he does. But the people know that the
war, since we entered, was fought on
'the aims laid down by our . president,
and they expect a peace made accord
ingly, and in that peace they expect a
League of Nations. s
Those who oppose : a League of Na
tions don't seem to thlifk of the terrible
slaughter In which over 7,000.000 hu
man beings ioet their lives. It ap
pears to me Uhat the life of any of
those 7,000,000 was as sweet to him as
. the life of any of the obstructionist sen
ators is to him. But they wan to con
tinue the old way, and have more wars.
Neither do they seem to think of those
who are crippled for life or blinded.
Neither do they seem to think or care
for the sad hearts at home, mourning
for the lost ones in battle. But the peo
ple who furnished the fighting boys
know the war aims. The one they re
member best is the one that says: "We
entered this war to put an end to all
"" wars." The only way to do this is by
a League of Nations.
Those senators don't seem to think
of the cost of the war, which was 1179,
000,000,000, a debt that those now living
and their children's children will have
to pay. Now, If we have the nerve to
saddle such a debt on our posterity,
we should have the courage to give them
something In return. The nicest thing
we could offer would be a world to live
In free from wars. Then they might
gladly pay the old debt. We can' give
. them such a world if we will give them
a League of Nations, such as advocated
by Wilson and Taft and a great ma
jority of the people.
Those who oppose the league have ab
solutely nothing to offer In its stead.
It Is plain that if" we don't get- the
league, we shall go back to the old war
. breeding system. Then all those fine
young Americans will have died In vain.
Concerning the Source of Law
Portland. March 7, To the Editor of
' The Joumal.--"I have not made a man
, of straw." God made man in His "own
tmaffe and likeness." He gave him the
soul powers of will, memory and un
derstanding and Impressed upon his
mind tlw norm of truth., making it
natural . to man to accept the truth ;
hence jthe law of nature. In his con
science man was provided with an in
fallible guide and by his free will was
' qualified to merit reward. In the
Image of God he was free from sin and
turpitude. Thus God left hlmv "in the
hands of his own counsel" and equal
to the achievement of his destiny.
.Allow me to incorporate a few ex
cerpts from Blackstone's commentaries:
As man depends, absolutely UDon his
" Maker for everything, It is necessary
that be should,. in. all points, conform
"to his Maker's will. This will of his
Maker is called the law of nature.'
This law of nature being co-equal with
mankind, and dictated by God himself,
Is, of course, superior In obligation to
any other. It la binding all over the
globe, in all countries and at all times :
So human laws are of any validity, ff
: contrary to this i and such of them as
are valid derive all this force and all
their., authority ,; from this original. It
Is the office of reason to discover what
the law of nature directs in every cir
cumstance of life." And If our
reason were always as in our first an-

God Impressed this law of nature ea
the mind of man and wrote it in his
heart, when He "breathed the. breath
of life" into him and "man became a
living soul"; but in the state of degra
dation consequent: upon his; fall man
was unable exactly to discover and
comprehend the will of God. So God
provided manin ?the Holy Scriptures
with the revealed law. i
"These precepts when revealed, are
found, upon comparison, to be really a
part of the original law of nature, as
they tend In all their consequences to
man's felicity." To resume from Black
stone: "On these two foundations, the
law of nature and the law .of revelation,
depend all human laws; no human law
should be suffered to contradict them."
Accepting, then, as a fundamental
principle that every people desires the
right to govern from God through the
law of nature, we build upon a philo
sophical foundation and provide a log
ical legislative guide.
Curative Publicity
Portland, March 7. To the Editor of
The Journal. The report of Raymond
Robins to the people ot the United
States, and especially to the govern
ment of the United States, Is timely and
sound. I am personally acquainted
with Raymond Robins, and I have had
occasion to differ with htm in Amer
ican politics. But his experience with
all conditions of society, together with
his profound knowledge in political
economy and of American Ideals, pe
culiarly fits him to utter a message
after visiting the scenes of Russia. And
his message is this: Kaiserisra is dead.
It has outlived its day, both in form
and substance. The old theory of mili
tary suppression.; here or elsewhere,
only Intensifies the difficulty sought to
be cured. The mayor of Portland
sounded the same note In a measure
before the Ad club. It simply means
that we must return to safe and sound
Americanism if 4 we expect to save the
ship. Not only must we give vent to
the widest publicity of various views
and remedies, but we must find the true
remedy, and then ' act. Merely discuss
ing it in pink tea parlors may a have
been all right in the academic stages of
economic freedom, but we must not only
think ; we must act. - This is the law
underlying all life, that unless It ad
Justs itself to changing conditions some
other form will supplant it.
I congratulate The Journal oh throw
ing open its columns to the widest di
vergence of views. That Is what a
great public journal is for, and I would
urge all other papers to follow suit
Ion't be afraid of the light; only dark
ness is dangerous.
More by Mr. Clark on I. W. W.
Portland, March IS. To the Editor of
The Journal I have been reading the
numerous letters bearing on the X. W.
W. The X. W. W. cause may be Just
in many respects, but they are not
worthy of the cause. As stated before,
I have had. them in my employ in dif
ferent parts of the United States and
Canada for many years and have dis
covered that all that I have dealt wfth
are criminals. - In the first place, they
refuse to work, which is a crime in Itself,
and all that I ever had anything to do
with were bent on committing crime
and doing devilment of some kind or
other, and the only remedy which the
government has found, up to date, tor
criminals is a term of good hard labor.
People should do right, no difference
what their environments are, at the
same time to have : an opportunity to
work to better their conditions. One
evil never rectifies another, and be
cause there is injustice on the part of
capitalists is no excuse for crime on
the part of others. s
One man, whose name I can not re
call, boasts that be "has a lot of rela
tives who fought in the Civil war and
in the world war," that he "is an Amer
ican to the backbone." and that he
would "take off his hat to the L W.
W." Now it is evident that this gen
tleman knows absolutely nothing about
the I. W- W., for If he did he could not
uphold them and be a true American
If the I. W. W. want to remove the
evil environment, let them draw a circle
around themselves and begin at home.
Then they will get the sympathy of
the people, and all labor unions included,
and win. any just cause they may have.

. . Would Abolish U. S. Senate
Portland. March S. To the Editor of
the Journal iris time the United States
senate was abolished. The action of the
senators who oppose the League of Na
tions and who frittered away the clos
ing'hours of the session, to say nothing
of the balance of the time, while neces
sary legislation failed of passage, have
simply added another reason to those
already growing in the minds of the
people "that the senate has no proper
place in our governmental: scheme. - It
was hoped that when the direct primary
came into existence and senators had
to go direct t6 the people for election,
it might awaken that body from Its
self-satisfied lethargy; but it seems be
yond redemption. The senate has de
generated into a second class debating
society, in which senatorial courtesy
takes .the place ot statesmanship, a de
sire for partisan advantage the place
of the nation's welfare, and. personal
spite the place of the allegiance owed
to the people who put them there. The
sulky senators are like peeved small
boys. They have been disgruntled over
since they found they could not dominate
the administration and that Wilson
could perform his war duties without
domination from : them.
Taft had his "time" with the senate,
and so did Roosevelt. Former presi
dents have experienced the same at
tempts at -dictation, generally in the
interest of something or somebody seek
ing, favors from the government that he
was not entitled to. The peevishness
has exhibited itself in many ways, ever
since the war started. And right now,
with the exception of bull-headed Borah.
th senators in opposition to the League
of Nations are hastening to explain that
It is the form of the constitution they
oppose ; which is only another way of
saying they want, the senate to have a
hand in composing the league and are
afraid Wilson -will secure too much
credit.. The cry has 'gone out that-the
senate must ' assert its power and,: re
gardless of the peace of the world or the
welfare of - the- nation, a false issue is
set up, merely because the senate feels
its-dignity touched. The infection seems
to . touch nearly every man : who la in
the. senate long; he gets peeved at a
president, and then spends good time
offering unjust criticism or blocking
heeded legislation.
I therefore repeat, it Is ' time -the
United- States senate was abolished.

Junker, . Bolshevik, Money
Portland, March 12.- To the Editor of
The Journal We bear; so. much that the
interests of the junkers in Europe caused
the war, and we democrats won't talk to
them unUI we see a change of heart Is
them, or to that effect. Further, we
read that the cause . of the war has
precipitated into another phase, a class
war, and that the latter is worse than
the former and must be crushed as we
did the junkers, and so on. - Further, we
note that the junkers .have always been
at one with, us in crushing down the
radical labor bodies.' How Is all that
mixed up? - Shouldn't we be, rather,
mighty glad that the Junkers over there
dont take on a, change of heart? " For
haven't they become now . our dearest,
allies against the labor regime, which
we -dread so much?; ..
If, then, we press too strong on the
junkers to take en a change of heart
and press their pocketbook, then they
might have to change their hearts into
Bolshevik!, and .goodbye money device !
If we take away their money in gold
and sliver, then they have to print them
selves paper money. And do you think
labor will then still be so stupid as to
give away its surplus products for the
Junkers' investment of paper capital or
paper tickets? Can't labor best print
them itself? Labor will then infinitely
more easily comprehend that the device
of gold and silver money is at best only
a means of account, or a ticket. It has
been a, confusion to all in the past, but
now the so-called poor won't be 'fooled
with it any lonfeer, Jtor knowledge is
power. Isn't.: therefore., this so-called
class war now going on. in Europe rather
a question as to- whether the old wrong
principle of money shall prevail or the
right principle of the paper ticket . with
out interest or profit. thereon? As long
as we have the money, device . we will
have wars and strife. - But economic
laws of evolution have necessitated the
abolition of money. Therefore, the labor
regime will finally win out. That's- the
inevitable law of events now In
transformation, "enhanced through war
finance. Listen closely : "Thou shalt
live by the swerd and shalt. serve thy
brother : and the time shall come when
thou shalt shake off and loose his yoke
from thy neck." (Douay version.)
If the Recall Were Invoked
Jacksonville. March 10. To the Editor
of The Journal In answer to Charles
L. Blanchard's recent letter defending
the foes of the league, I wish to say
that Mr. Blanchard seems to think the
people are not behind our president. We
know some are not. We will say the
pro-Germans are very bitter at Presi
dent Wilson. Why? Because he did
not keep us out of the war and let Ger
many' extend the German empire to
America. Pro-Germans that were reg
istered as Democrats, tried to, and did,
change their registration before the late
election. There was no pro-Germaa
vote for President Wilson at the last
election. .
I am of the opinion that a recall vote
by the voters of the country would send
the 37 United States senators home by a
10 to 1 vote, or more. A. H. S.
Toledo, March 10. To the Editor of
The Journal In The Journal of March
2, under the caption "The Late Session,"
you give the impression that the state
legislature Just past met with practi
cally unanimous approval. But some
of its enactments do not meet with gen
eral approval. Why was the emergency
clause invoked If not because those leg
islators who voted the increased salaries
for certain county officials had every
reason to believe that their constituents
would reverse such increases if the ref
erendum had a chance?
Another matter : ' We read many es
says nowadays deprecating the work of
"agitators," who are accused of gener
ating "class feeling." What name fits
the granting of a pensi&n to the widow
of a late ex-president of $5000 per an
num, who was in no pauperised condi
tion? Was not this for a "class" of ex
president's widows? If not, grant it to
all widows.
Concerning government ownership
against control of railways As the
railways of a country are its main high
ways, why should they not be owned,
as are the roads miscalled "dlrt"roads?
Is the road of iron or steel not the
cheapest to maintain, in proportion to
tonnage carried? Is it not as cheap to
build as is the average' concrete high
way? Is the rolling stock any more
expensive to build, maintain or run on
the road of steel than to, handle an
equal tonnage on the road of conorete?
If a private concern is a benefit to the
nation at the head of the road of steel,
why Is It not as much benefit if allowed
to own the concrete highway? If a toll
on all railway hauling helps to pay
a private profit above cost of carriage,
why not a similar private profit, or toll,
on the concrete, or gravel, road?
The Syndicalism dill
Portland. March 10. To. the Editor of
The Journal Aside from other serious
objections voiced by citizens whose
Americanism has never been ques
tioned against the so-called "crim
inal syndicalism "bill" which now dis
graces the statutes of this supposedly
civilised state, it seems that the most
deplorable and unthinkable feature, if
correctly reported. Is that It is directed
only at those -i who would -violate ; its
"verboten" for purposes of "political or
Industrial reform," or for "profit," en
tirely missing all who plot and murder
to try, for Indefinable and . a score of
shady and indeterminable purposes, to
stop citlsens from enjoying their con
stitutional rights.
I sent. Senator Chamberlain the' text
of the bill as reported in The Journal
and urged him, should congress legislate
along these lines, as seemed probable,
to take heed that any and all criminal
syndicalists, whatever the apparent or
plain purpose or intent of the offender

The Tin Can Nuisance ,
Portland. March 12. To the Editor of
The Journal Portland suffers from the
tin can nuisance. I have noticed par
ticularly the Mount Scott district. In
many places people have .dumped cans
and rubbish in plain sight of the carline
and road. Even if there is no certain
place for the cans to be dumped, I see
no reason why they should, be placed
in view of hundreds of people who pass
by every day, or why-cannot a place
be set aside for. them, if there is no
smelter in Portland? If we want Fort-
land to grow, we will each .have to help,
and we are not doing it hjr throwing
our rubbish beside the roads and car-
lines where motorists will see it as they
pass out of the city, and it will leave
anything but a favorable impression
of Portland with them. And is it right
that every morning when hundreds of
working men take the streetcar to tne
city they should be greeted by such a
depressing sight to start the day with?
This nuisance is affecting the real
estate business, too. If a man Is taking
a nrosoective 'buyer to see a place on
the Mount . Scott line, the first' thing
his eyes rest upon is a pile of rusty
cans and trash. Ten to one, from .hat
minute the deal . Is off. Then, If there
were a rivalry between Portland and
another city for a branch of a large
-corporation or milling business to be
started up, and- the representative was
shown around the town, and Tie passed
along a road decorated with piles of
csns, and gullies ruled with them, nis
opinion of the town surely would not
be the best. It seems to me that for
the small amount of work and money
which it would take to remove this dls
grace to' Portland, the city would be
paid many times over for us trouDie.
I understand that three Is a city or
dinance against this, and it should be
all the more shame to the city that It
is not enforced. DOROTHY BRUCE.

Opposes Bird Reserves
Merrill, March 1. To the Editor of
The Journal The crusade against the
withholding of valuable farming lands
by the fish and game commission was
very timely, and I hope It wiU persist
until a farmer s crop will be considered
worth more than a few wild ducks and
geese. Whenever It is sought to rave
for the wild ducks and geese land that a
man can make a living on and raise a
cow where a duck grew before and grow
a ton of hay where a raudhen sported
around in the water for three or four
months in the good old summertime,
that. I think, is overplaying . the hand.
There will be lots of swamps left " for
bird reservations after all the swamps
that can be drained are made available.
Those interested in birds, and birds
alone, succeeded in giving Lower Kla
math lake such a black eye that It was
thrown out of the reclamation project,
and though it would have taken only one
day's work, after the railroad was built.
to drain it. the birds had the exclusive
use of it until last summes. Then co
operation among the landowners did the
Job and took 54,000 acres away room Mr.
Finley et al. And yet. as late as last
fall a biological expert brought up the
old bugaboo of excess alkali. Just be
cause there is alkali within shooting
distance of any bird reservation it
means, according to these authorities,
that the swamp lands, after being
drained, will be too alkaline for. crop
production. They do not realise that
drainage practically asseres decrease of
alkali. There has only just now come
to my knowledge a case of the defeating
of a homestead entry for stockralslng
purposes where part of the entry is ' In
a "bird reserve." This land is so rocky
and steep that only a sheep can scale it.
and even a fool wild duck has too much
sense to build her nest on it, as a coyote
could see his breakfast a mile away on
a foggy morning, it is so bare ot pro
tection. And of what great value are
wild ducks and geese except 'as an in
centtve to the city man to take some
much needed exercise which he could
very well take In a hayfield or in fixing
up some ot the roads which his machine
tore up. Let not these bird lovers butt
in on the pioneer when he is making
avaUable some of the finest and most
productive of land. HEPPENHEIM.

to make it plain to some patrons who

to cover these living expenses. : A paint

than that Two thousand to $3000 per

Your Stomach It Is Hard to
Get Benefit From Meals.
Pleasurable anticipation of a meal,
cheerfulness at the table and a calm
state of mind during digestion are all
necessary if we are to get -the most
good out of the food we eat. But if
your stomach, is out of order and you
never have a good appetite any more,
and everything you. eat distresses you,
how are these, things possible?
Worry 'interferes with digestion and
if you are nervous you will worry. If
your blood is - thin and your stomach
has lost tone you will be troubled with
gas pains after eating. Loss of appe
tite is a symptom of a general run
down condition.
If this is your case try building up
the blood and strengthening the nerves
by the tonic treatment. See if you don't
soon notice an improvement in your
appetite. It is usually the first sign
that the tonic treatment is helping you.
Then as the digestive organs are toned
up to do the work that nature intended
you are able to eat with comfort things
that formerly disagreed with you. This
was the experience of Mrs. F. J. Wood
ruff, of No. 314 Trowbridge street,
Grand Rapids, Mich.
"My stomach was In such bad condi
tion." -says Mrs. Woodruff, "that I had
to be very careful of what I ate for I
suffered from, acute pains in my stom
ach. Frequently there was a pain that
started in my left side and traveled to
my . shoulders. I really didn't Know
what It was to sleep well and I dreaded
to see night come. I lost my strength
and my nerves were poor.
"I had heard of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills many times and when I saw a news
paper announcement of them I decided
to give them a trial. I noticed a change
when I had taken one box and I was
completely restored to health after tak
ing five boxes. I have regained all my
strength and I no longer have to be
careful" of what I eat. as almost any
thing seems to agree with, me. The
pains after eating have disappeared and
I sleep soundly. My nerves, too. have
recovered their strength and no longer
trouble me. I have recommended Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to a number of
my friends fpr I am confident that they
will help them.-. ,
Dr. Williams Pink Pills are a tonic
for the blood and nerves, y They begin
at once to build up the system weakened
by excess or overwork. The rich, red
blood soon begins to show in cheeks and
lips, the step is quicker, the eyes brighter
and the good effect is .felt in every
organ of the body,

merits and ability, with apparent good
principles, are. often on the fence. For
Instance,- while ostensibly adopting the
League of Nations idea, they seem to
adopt also and ' reargue- such - sophis

I do not like such, Instability. X have

Mother of 11 Children Tells
of Improvement Obtained
From Tanlac
"I have Improved so much since 1
started taking Tanlac that the neigh
bors are all talking about it now." said
Mrs. Mary Scott, who is the mother of
eleven children and who lives at 81$
Princeton street, Portland. r -
"About two years ago I began to lose
my appetite," she continued, "and what
little I did force down would disagree
with me.. After eating I would be all
bloated up with gas, too, and would
belch up sour and undigested bits of
food and would -often be nauseated. I
was troubled with sharp pains in my
right side and in my back between the
shoulder blades and the pains would ex
tend to my arms. I was so run down
and weak that sometimes - when X was
walking my legs would give way under
me so that I would nearly fall and X lost
so much strength that I was utterly
unable to do my housework. The medi
cine I was taking was not doing me any
good and as I heard so much about
what Tanlac was doing to help people
who were in the same condition I was, I
decided to try- It.
"I must say that I didn't get any big
results from the first three. or four bot
tles but I got enough to make me keep
on trying It and it was on the fifth bot
tle that I was able to notice the big
improvement; While I am not en
tirely recovered I, am greatly encour,
aged because-1, have a better appetite
and can digest what I eat better than
for several years and X have gained
back all my lost weight. I feel strong
again, too, and am able to do the house
work for my family, even including the
washing. I - nave told all my friends
about Tanlac and I always intend to
keep a bottle of this grand medicine on
hand for protection sake."
