MEDFORD. Ore., Dec. 17. "If
we are going to let oriental labor
ers and producers come into our
country there are just two courses
left open to us. When they are
here in numbers we must either
get out ourselves or else abandon
Christianity and abolish our pres
ent standards of living and our
Ideals as a people.
This was the summary ot the
Japanese problem presented at a
mass meeting of Medford citizens
at the Chamber of Commerce here
Wednesday night by George A.
White, adjutant general of the
state, who was a guest at a ban
quet given by the chamber and
the Medford citizen soldiery.
Gufllible Are Warned.
"Timid and guillible people and
those who have not examined Into
the very fundamentals of the ori
ental problem may not agree that
tfe question is the most vital one
concerning the whole Pacific
coast." sard Colonel White.
"But our very existence as a peo
ple depends upon knowing just
what oriental immigration means
and preventing It at all hazards.
If we are going to temporize with
that problem then we must be
prepared to put our farmers and
laborers into competition with 15-hours-a-day
labor and compel
their wires and children to go Into
the fields as beasts of burden.
"We are an altruistic people in
America and have never gone to
war unless forced Into It by the
necessity of protecting our ideals
or our shores. We welcome the
people ot the whole world to our
shores to share our bounties on
equal terms with us. We onty ask
in return that In coming here they
shall adopt the standards of Am
erica and become Americans.
Where they cannot do that or will
not do it then It becomes our duty
to ourselves to shut the door In
their faces and keep It shut.
Senator Thomas Agrees.
"We must make certain that
we pass this great inheritance of
ours in Oregon along to our chil
dren and their children unincum
bered and unimpaired. In devel
oping this great empire we must
make certain that we shall reap
what we sow and that it shall fall
