' Thp Portland Journal of Sunday showed evidences, on its
eclitoriil page, of attemptitipf to back-track from the maze into
which several newspapers of that eit', and some others through
out the stated have been led on account of the setting up of the
doctrine that "A man's house is his castle," in a high society
booze gjuzzling fest case in Portland. The Portland Journal in
its Sunday issue had the following editorial article:
r When is a Castle!
("Does the doctrine that 'a man's house is his
e;istle' bar enforcement officers from entering
h )mes when they know there-is booze inside!' a cor
' Certainly not. A house is not 'a castle' for
t shelter' of any kind of law violation. There is no
place where crime of any kind can be committed
arid be free from entrance by officers.
! rlf enforcement officers know, or have probable
cause to believe, that the law is being violated in
- - a house they can, on a showing "and affidavit, secure
a search warrant and enter any house.
; i j' To claim that a 'house is a castle' to the extent
of jsheltering law-breakers from arrest would be ab
surd. In j the recent controversy on the subject
r in this state nothing of that kind was claimed.
- The criticisms arose over the fact that enforcement
officers swore out search warrants and invaded
t premises regardless of whether or not the occu
pants were law-abiding or lawless, or whether
theire was or was not liquor on the premises.
1 There is law for governing officials as well as
citizens. There is not much reason for difference
- ! of jyiew on what the law is. A 'house' is not a
'castle' 4n which law may be violated with impun
M ity;j vA. fhouseV is a 'castle' which officers, may

has been very definitely pointed out by the courts.
v f 'f A crime is a. crime '"wherever committed, and
thejplaco where committed is subject to search,
and should be searched, by officials."
;- .-iris-: .:.
' The Portland Journal is clear enough in the above on the
main issue which was raised by misquotations and misinterpre
tation! of an address t Governor Pierce, in which he held just
what the Pbrtland Journal holds in its Sunday article
That 8 noose is nbt a castle in which to commit or harbor

fl$v of another. x

castle," what is a house f It is a structure intended or used as a
human habitation.'. In the 'last analysis, it is where a man re

may be a shed Jean-to, or a cave or'hollow log or boat or dry

The doctrine that a man's house is his castle is good doc

general open sesame in their homes of Oriental peoples; with
some-notable exceptions as to the latter .. fu
"Andbc doctrine appeals to the Anglo-Saxon sense of good
sportsmanship and fair play; to the idea that men and women

same strict account as the. poor and weak. ; iv ;
The conclusion of the whole matter is this: There are a
few people in Portland who believe their wealth right to place
them above the; law and when they are crossed in this notion
they are prone to demand 6f the newspapers whose columns they
in ne way or another control that they basely, play the role
of cuttlefish and foul the clear waters of. public oninion

NO MORE WAR
: We find on our desk this morn

clipping from some paper saying
there la going to be another-war
right away. The clipping says:
"We hop so! Better war than
false peace." We do not known
what paper this is from, but it is
a foolish firebrand. Certainly, we
have had enough war. Certainly,
the I'nitecl States has spent
enough money in the last ten years
to satisfy the moat exacting, to
say nothing of the men we lost
and to say nothing of the fact
that we took two years out of the
lives of four million young men.
No, there will be no more war.

In some way we musi enter

For five years it has tried, and
not a single nation has got on its
feet. Substantial old England has

paid for the war. France has not

GIVING THE XEWS
Last Saturday night 4here was
a scandal which broke in high
society circles in Atlanta, Georgia.
For some reason, not a single At
lanta newspaper carried the scan
dal. -This might -have been all
right except for the fact that all
the outside papers carried it.
It is a poor policy to ask a
newspaper to suppress real news;
it is never suppressed. Nothing
was gained by humiliating the At
lanta papers by showing that they
were intimidated. The news was
all the more picked up by the out
side papers. .The best cure for all
such things is publicity.
Charles Forbes has been expos
ed as the monumental grafter of
the decade. In the war everybody
was doing It;- but since the war,
we are told that we would have
publicity focused on the adminis
Istration and the grafting would
stop. However, it seems that For
bes did it.
What makes it worse is that
Forbes grafted, in the sacred name
of the dead soldiers. Any sort
of clemency extended this man
will mean a reflection on the ad
ministration, and it ought to.
President Coolidge may have an
unpleasant job, but he has his
duty to perform, and must not
shirk it, no matter who is hurt
or who is slain.
DEXBY SHOULD GO
Secretary Denby is not crimin
ally responsible. for the Teapot
dome scandal, but his stupidity is
so tremendous that he has no busi
ness staying in the cabinet. He
is taking the old ground that he
will not retire under fire. That
is the ground of the average poli
tician always, and there is noth
ing to it. Practically all politi
cians retire under fire. There is
not one in a thousand who re
tires In any other way.
Our idea is that Denby should
retire because he has shown him
self such avchump in the Teapot
A friend phoned us a proposed
slogan Saturday: "The Capital
City. .Drive slow and ee our
beautiful city, or drive fast and
see our jail." .We argued with the
man, but he was obdurate. The
slogan Is not a good one. It would
be if the last paragraph was off.
A beautiful invitation is spoiled
by an ugly threat, and it would
be a pity to do this. A very
nice slogan would be: "The Cap
ital City. Drive slowly and see our
' A PLVCKY CITY
; It,wouldtJbe Iraposslbj to keep
iirom aamirmg. ma spirit of As
toria. Adversity after adversity
has been heaped upon it, the same
as upon Job of old; but Astoria
has kept its faith, as Job did. Job
lived one hundred and forty years
after his affliction and reared
seven sons and three daughters,
all of whom were an honor to him.
His lauds and flocks were dou
bled. Astoria is not going to give up;
it is going to stay strong in the
faith until its population is doubled.
The lower house of congress has
defeated the efforts to put tax
free securities on the tax roll. One
thing sure, it this injustice is con
tinued, congress must pass a law
that there be no more tax free se
curities. It must be there is
something to this obligation en
tered into at war times, but cer
tainly it is not proper to continue
this practice, which is helping the
rich and punishing the poor.
The Corvallis Gazette - Times
takes exception to The Oregon
Statesman's protest against the
State Chamber of Commerce cam
paigning to change the state laws.
The protest is pertinent, notwith
standing. It is not a part of the
duties of a state chamber to cam
paign for or against any law.

that time Katie will have things
in full swing."
"Did you see my sister-in-law?"
I asked, perfectly willing to delay
entrance Into the house.
Lillian Ha a Hunch.
"Is she a large, placid lady, who
looks as if she'd been set to jell,
and the process had been

"You've described her exactly,"
I laughed. -

"But, seriously, Lillian, I ought to

"But, seriously, Madge," she
mimicked, "you shall be there in

I seated myself in the nearest
chair, and ' folded my hands in
mock resignation. I was so tired
and nervous that I had t'o strike a
note of foolery. It was either that

Lillian looked, at me keenly.
"Don't you dare to let yourself
down until after that stunt to

sharpness which she seldom uses.
By it I judged the importance to
her of the expedition we were to
share with Katie.
I straightened jn my chair, and
snapped my hand , to my forehead
in a military salute. J
"I won't." I promised serious
ly, and her face and voice relaxed.
"I'm probably .as crazy as a
loon," she said, "but I've got one
of my hunches about this affair of
Katie's, and it's like finding

"Just the Thing!"
"Not Jim, under any circum

quick flashing back of my mem
ory to the things Katie had asked
me to recall.
If Lillian had any curiosity as to
my meaning she didn't betray it.

confidently, "and , keep him from
saying anything to Dicky. , But
Dicky simply must not know we're

hands, but this time I ruthlessly
interrupted her planning.
"You forget Mother Graham,"
I said quietly.
She sprang to her feet, drew me
to mine, and gave me an approv
ing pat on my shoulder.
"Bless her melodramatic old
soul!" she said. "Of course! Just
the thing! If Mother Graham gels
properly excited over the thing,
she'll keep Dicky away if she has
to tie him to the bedstead in his
room. Do you want to tackle her,
or shall I-"
THE WELCOME-MADGE "FOUND
IN HER LIVING-ROOM.
At Lillian's query as to which
of us should enlist Mother Gra
ham's aid in keeping Dicky out
of the way of our nocturnal ex
cursion with Katie, I threw out
my hands with a gesture that con
fided to her my august mother-in-law,
body and soul.
"You, by all means!" I said em
phatically. "You know that by
the time Mother Graham . gets
through stirring hp things to make
room for us tonight, she'll be fit
to be tied. And she'll hold me
directly responsible. I feel it in
my bones. I couldn't impress her
with even the idea, of foiling a

If you can get her attention and
divert her mind from me you'll
not only be accomplishing your

maliciously. "All rightf I'll tackle

again there swept through me an
