Roy Haynes, Prohibition Ag
ent, Talks to Joint Ses
sion of Legislature
Men and women - who are high
-In public and social life and who
violate the prohibition law Vere
pitilessly excoriated by Roy A.
Haynes, federal prohibition com
missioner; i In- an address jester
day, before a joint, session ofj the
state. : legislature, , The hall of
representatives where the address
was delivered: was crowded with
visitors.-,,.'. 4r : ;. ''
tOa r the; platform " with i Mr.
Haynes, were Dr. R. O. Mathews,
special ; assistant, Washington,
D.C. ; Sherman. Cuneo, personal
representative; of Mr. Haynes;
Samuel P. Butter, federal prohi
bition director of California;; Roy
C. Lyle, Washington state direct
or; C. Jackson, Wyoming direct
or; Col. E. Marsters. Idaho direct

J. .A. " Llnvllle, Oregon : director;
and F. A-VHaxeltlne, divisional

Governor . Presides - ,.
Oorernor Pierce presided ft the
, meeting,. Introducing. Mr. Haynes
he: recalled! the 5 legislative as-
- sembly of 20 years ago when the
famous "house bill 104, the
state ; treasurer's i office, t was ' the
mecca 'of :, legislative members.
The governor also ; recalled the
prohibition fight of 18 years ago
-. In which he fought for prohibition
and lost, he said. ' his place in
public life for a time as a result.
.At the conclusion of, the Haynes
address the goyernor declared that
Oregon would do iU share toward
; enforcement of the prohibition
law, and that as executive f the
- state he would see that the laws
I are enforced. , J v V
! In hitting at men of the 'prom
inent class who tlolate the, law.
Commissioner Haynes said
"It must be Admitted that one
t very serious difficulty in connec
' tion with prohibition law enforce
ment work is the surprising atti
tude of many in official and pri
rate life; men admittedly bt high
standing andy great Influence in
their respective, social, profession
al or business spheres, who will
not knowingly wink at the viola-
tioa of, any other statute, but who
will sanction, and who participate
in, the illegal traffic In intoxicat
ing liquor without any seeming
shock to their consciences.
! "It - Is - not to he wondered at
that bootleggers' and criminals
will Tlolate the law for the sake
of possible Illegal gains, but it is
difficult to understand how prom
inent clubmen,J business and pro
fessional men.w and .men high . In
the various walks of public and
private life become parties t '! to
such violations : and create a de
mand . for their continuance by
purchasing Illegally 'secured con
traband.'. If there can be any dlf
f erent degree of responsibility
among citizens' for the. observance
of law, i men of such ' Influential
circles as these ' should ; be ;' con
sidered eyen more . guilty than
those of whom society expects
, less. - v -";. ,.- " . .V
' ; Example Set
'This ' condition' la properly a
source of great concern though It
cannot In ny way reflect a
breaking , down of moral fiber
among patriotic Americans, who
are expecting the will of tW ma
jority to be, properly observed by
the minority as well as by the
, "The citizen , who, at his club.
In the home restaurant or hotel,
of elsewhere," Tiolates the 1 prohi
bition -law, not only does! injus
tice to himself but -sets an example
i: to those about . him; frequently
.' employes, which only encourages
' further violations and sets in mo
tion corrupt influences which go
on and on. When men of stand
ing and. influence do these things
which they know to be In defiance
of law, and constitution, there is
reason for grave concern.
, Referring to the crime wave
following the war, Mr. Haynes
said that - "this administration
. soonr after coming into ' power,
found that' one of the, greatest
problems confronting It was) tha
enforcement of all laws, and es-
- peclalljr difficult, the enforcement
of the. new prohibition law. The
enemies of the law at once began
to - take advantage of the situa-
' tion., ';: ., ! .., ;
; Secret Enemy Seen -
. ' "As a people we have nothing
' to fear from without.. No great
foreign foe is preparing to Jump
at VS with, sudden ruthlessneas,
but the enemy that Is to be feared
' is the subtle one that, under the
f gruise of mock patriotism, shatn
f. med personal liberty, non-observance'
of law, 'creeps'' up unawares
and threatens , to undermine the
- .very .fundamentals .which J. have
bee.n i responsible for our- great
growth as a nation and our mar
vclous prosperity and. happiness
- as a people. - " -. J.-
.'Whatever. forces are at work
in this country to lessen the dig
nity "of law or undermine authorl-
- ty coaf erred by law, strike at the
very heart of the nation.' Every
. sijnv that points' to the evasion
or disregard -of the eighteenth
amendment is on the high road of
anarchy and lawlessness and leads
toward the .fulfillment of ttiat
treble prophecy f McCauley, who
I i ti? nineteenth ceaturr, pre
dicted that: the civilization of, the
United Stated would be destroyed
by I the i lawlessness engendered
within her own institutions.
-'': Bootlegger Criminal r
"The bootlegger,' whether he
be In the highest or lowest walks
of life Is, in the last analysis, a
law violator, and stripped of his
social prestige ' or . political influ
ence he is ! a criminal giving as
sistance and ; encouragement, to
those forces of profiteering crim
inality whose business it has been
to prostitute statesmanship and
debauch citizenship,, and which
hate murdered more men in the
discharged of their duties in pro
portion to- the number employed
in the enforcement of law than
fell on the battlefields of France
in defense of our flag." '
Redemption of Stamps '
80 j Percent in Salem
Salem has gone far beyond the
average "record for the redemp
tion of - postal- savings stamps.
Reports from the national treas
ury up to January 13, show that
only $200,000,000 to the total of
$625,000,000 ' issued in ' 1918.
have been sent in for redemption.
Postmaster John Farrar estimates
that fully 80 per cent have. been
redeemed is Salem since the date
' This redemption of 80 per cent
from :. this territory, as compared
with ; the only 30 , per cent v re
demption . for the whole country
over, is taken to be evidence of
good, , Jsound , business judgment
on. the part of the owners.. The
stamps . were calculated to pay
Interest up to January, 1923, and
after that, gain nothing n value.
A considerable proportion of the
redemption fund now.. being paid
over is paid.: not in casij, but in
the new five-year . bonds sold by
Jhe government, yielding 4 per
cent interest,; and purchasable in
units of $25. $100 and 1000.!
From the. brisk selling of these
new bonds it is certain that this
section of the country is very far
from broke, as the, money can go
back Into other forms of perma
nent savings ' and does not. have
to go into' present expenses.:

troduced in the senate -yesterday:

TO BE HEARD H
Local Organization to Raise
- Funds for Boy Scouts
Date is. Uncertain
The Lions' minstrels will; ap
pear on the Salem stage about the
middle of February, to raise funds
for the, local Boy Scout fund.
This was announced &t the Lions
club luncheon Friday noon when
the cluto unanimously endorsed
the , movement and promised to
train up, its. loudest , roars and
sharpen up Its teeth and claws to
razor edge to simply herd the
crowd In and take its money for
the good; cause. ' The committees
will be announced the first of the
coming week, and . work is to be
gin to make the event a great.
and roaring success. '
Following . the national ' thrift
thrift week course of study,' and
using the allotted topic ' of Life
Insurance for the Friday program.
A, C. Barber, : state -; insurance
commissioner, addressed the club
in a very effective talk on Insur
ance; He set forth the thought
that - Insurance offers the only
sure and almost the only possible
way for the . man , of 4 moderate
means to create an' estate to care
for. his family and hla credit af
ter he has worked himself Into
the grhve. He told, of many in
stances where life insurance only
had - saved the family and the
family name. He ; differentiated
between economy and thrift;, the.
one being sometimes merely a
niggardly, painful'" mortificatI6n
of the flesh, while thrift considers
values and. not price; symbols. He
urged adequate life insurance as
one of the thriftiest ways of plan
ning for the. future.
Two ' delightful,,
numbers were given

bership and the meetings are be
