REFORMATION, . NOT VINDICTIVE JUSTICE
An exchange says: "Punishment of crime in Oregon, aa
described by section 15 of the first article of the Constitu
tion, provides that 'laws for the punishment of crime shall
be founded on' the principles of reformation, and not of vin
dictive justice.' Yet what possible chance of reformation
has a youth, who on his first o'ffense is sentenced to a long
term of association with post-graduates in crime ? What-d
ever chances of reformation existed will be gone by the time
of his release." v -? '-a-' ry :4 ;2 r 1 . r: h: :
TThe reference is to several youths given long sentences in
the penitentiary by Circuit Judge TazweU of Portland,-and
specially to the cases of five younjr fellows pleading guilty
to hold-up charges and being given terms of 20 to 25 years
each, and still more especially to two youths being sent up
last Friday, for 15 years each for robberies yielding $66,
and despite the fact that the district attorney pleaded for
leniency because it was their first offense, committed be
cause bf a long and fruitless search for employment
And more especially still, the reference is to the compara
tively insignificant punishment of vastly greater offenders.
; There is ho such thing as exactly even handed justice in
this world, but there can be devis'ed ways for a nearer ap
proach than we have to this ideal in Oregon in ! the, punish
ment of men convicted of crimes in our courts.
; There is too much difference between sentences for the
eame or like offenses in the different circuit courts--
And there will always be as long as men are "sentenced"
for ascertain number of years- f jl t-"'-&.rr
Until all sentences are indeterminate, absolutely.
Theh, under laws "founded on the principles ; of rpf orma
tion, boys ought to be released on parole whenever they
become capable of leading decent, law abiding; self support
ing lives and men, too.
Such a highway as Is now proposed will lead not only to
Champoeg, but to a new appreciation for the romance of
Oregon. ' ' 1 ; " :
The above appeal of the Portland Telegram is timely and
appropriate. We must have that highway finished, if pos
sible, In time for the 1934 centenary celebration of the coming
of the missionaries to the Willamette valley, '-.
This is the week. The week to finish bond pledges to pay
the debts of the Oregon Linen Mills, Inc., and the names of
the committees at work give assurance that the task will be
done.-Then, next week and the weeks following, should have
the right of way in securing further bond and stock sub
scriptions, till the Institution shall be provided with work
ing capital to make it a going concern. This will give a firm
foundation for specialty mills, which will come leading to
the employment of several thousand people. .

question of my line of business beings over done in Salem.

THE WAY;
- OF THE
WORLD
-. By OroTe Tattersoa
: But Oregon is in a bad way for acdommodations for such
a system' even if she had it. There were 627; prisoners men
and women (and boys) counted in at the Oregon state peni
tentiary last night; the high water mark in the history of
thel institution, and the number "will likely increase during
the winter months, as is usual ... - r:
And there is no room now provided at all for more than
dtout 15 additional inmates . , j.L ,
V And in fact the number is too great now." (There is too
much crowding; too many cases of two "persons in one cell.
The ideal systen4cklls f or a single cell for every prisoner.
And the boys and young men, and perhaps some of the
first offenders, in the discretion of the, proper authorities,
ought to be taken out of the Oregon state penitentiary and
put into a state reformatory. The state has a suitable plant,
with not very expensive additions, at the old I boy i reform
school south of Salem. And the governor has authority to
make transfers. But funds and regulations are lacking
- And theliext legislature,: at the "farthest, must provide
these things. That would bring some relief.' It would cure
some of :the faults of young men and first offenders being
-rut with "post-graduates in crime.'' .-i I ; ; ,
r A new penitentiary is needed. But the people turned that
r reposition down at the polls. - ;
There is a call for some one with understanding going into
all these matters and' securing some needed reformation in
our laws covering crime and criminals, by the legislature to
meet a year from next month. - : -
A ROAD TO CHAMPOEG i'..
' " (Portland Telegram)
At Champoeg on Monday representatives from commun
ities along the proposed Salem-Champoeg-Portland highway,
organized the Champoeg Historic association for the purpose
furthering the project. '
It is said that the new.route will shorten the distance be
tween Portland and Salem by eight or ten miles, which is in
Itself a strong argument in favor of the new highway, but
quite as important is the educational value of a road which
- would touch upon these scenes of historic interest.
We have been all too negligent of the" appeal that lies in
Oregon's early story. No state can look back to a beginning
so sensationally dramatic as that famous line tip at Champoeg
which made Oregon an American state rather than a British
colony. The characters assembled in tnat -early gathering,
mi ssionarie's, frontiersmen, American and Canadian trappers,
Joe Meek, typical Eeatherstocking hero the actors and tlje
movement of the play could not be improved upon by the
most imaginative dramatist. All the story of those 'first
years of pioneering is a romance to fire the imagination and
needs only to be played up a little to arouse new pride in
Oregon on the part bf its own people, and new admiration for
it on me parto luiuiaw.,, -. i -. ; , -
Not long ago a Portland man tried the experiment of ask-
in : "every one who entered his office, "Where is Champoeg
t and what road goes to it V me answers mape up a wna

Business Letters;

Not only does the' silly striving
for pompous phraseology provide
bad English and duU reading; it
is wastef&l. , f
' Every foolish or obsolete word In
a letter takes the time of the man
who dictates It , and the sten
ographer, or typist who writes it;
still worse it ' takes up unneces
sary time of the man who receives
It so much, so that perhaps he
gets disgusted at the first glance,
and reads no ; farther. jThus t the
letter defeats its purpose.: - "
We ordinarily - attempt to be
more painstaking, more -exact, and
to proceed with less wasteful mo
tion, in our, business than In our
pleasures. Tet social correspon
dence usually gets to the point
much quicker than a business let

Why should we use a kind of
phraseology :, in business , letters
that, we never use In conversation,
In writing for publications, or ever
in other kinds of letters?
, Presumably, the reason all busi
ness letters are so much alike is
that each'wTiter wants to show his
familiarity with standardized bus
iness! forms and customs.
It one mast hare his letters
standardized, .'why not - also have
them simplified and clarified?

opinion that much time Is wasted

Since the passage of the Mann

port says, most of the "old time
leaders of the American white
slave traffic have become bootleg

The report said there is little
evidence of immigration into Can

from seasonable crossings of the
frontier by women from the Unit
ed. States.
The section on Mexico indicates
that women are taken there for
immoral purposes by evasion of
the Mexican laws. Tijuana, Tam
plco, Mexican and Mexico City, are
amonj; the clues discussed. It
states that American girls are
numerous at Tijuana,- and also

- In New York
"The Ladder" now holds the top
place, among Manhattan plays now
running, for number of successive
performances, -k It has been . per
forming continuously for over, a
year, i "Abie's Irish Rose" ran five
years and five months in Manhat
tan, but has now -.gone to the
Bronx.
' The Ladder" is not a hit. It
never was. It has lost half a mill
Ion dollars for its backer, Edgar
B. Davis, of .Brockton, Mass., and
Texas. But Davis Isn't discour
aged. He will keep "The Ladder"
going- as long as anybody goes to
see It. And it is said to bCvei
played to audiences containing not
more than five people already.
The Ladder" has a reincarna
tion theme. Davis believes in re-!
incarnation. He is willing to back
his belief with a little money, so
that others may have' a chance to
get an insight into reincarnation
theories. "". I
Half a million is a small amount
to Edgar Davis. - And, by the way.
there's a great story connected
with, Davis and his money and this
play.-.; :. . ;.
There's another Davis in it. " J
Frank Davis and Edgar B. Davis,
not related, were boys together in
Brockton.
J. Frank Davis became a news
paper man. Representing a Bos
ton paper, he went north to meet
Peary, returning from a polar ex
ploration. He slipped on an icy!
companionway, fell and broke a
vertebra. .. For IS 'ycaraj be baa
been a semi-invalid, able to sit up
only a short time each day. He
writes . short 1 stories. He also
wrote "The Ladder." .
J. Frank Davis .was living- In
San Antonio, Texas. Thither went
his old playmate, Edgar Davis,
prospecting for oil. Edgar' Davis
borrowed a quarter of a million
dollars, and spent It drilling in
wildcat territory, at Lullng, near
San Antonio. When the money
was all gone and he had mailed a
letter to the bank, saying he could
not meet the Interest, a gusher
came In. Davis sold out for 12
million dollars that time. He has
made a lot of money In oil and -rubber
since then.
- So Edgar Davis hired his old
friend by the year, paying him a
good salary. There was Just one
Job for the writer, and that was
to write a play with, incarnation ln
it. J. Frank Davis wrote the play,
and I believe he is still on salary,
rewriting it.
Edgar Davis Is a reticent man.
He is neff Interviewed or photo
graphed for" the-papers. He has
an offfc li Ne- York t.nd he em
ploys a stiff to keep playwrights
with new offerings away from
him. He doesn't in tende to be
angel to: any other play, but he
is not at all regretful for what he
has spent on "The Ladder."
Edgar Davis, by the way, is a
loyal soar of Brockton. He has
given much money to the old home
town.' : - . . .
