Would Create a Revolution If Liter.
ally Applied The Public and Not
the Officers to Blame,
The fight against1 wide-open towns
in Portland, and at other points In the
state has brought out the discussion
of enforcing the laws generally. It
Is found that there are a number of
"ignored" or obsolete laws on the
statute books, and still a greater num
ber of ordinances under this class in
every city and town in the state.
Many advocate the plan of enforc
ing the laws to the letter or repeal
ing them. Many oppose this plan
and claim it is better to keep them
on tho statute books as a sort of
whip over offenders. They claim
that were such laws not on the stat
ute books, violations would become
so flagrant that conditions would be
come intolerable, and that while tho
laws are on the books the minute
an offender steps beyond the ordinary
he may be punished, and that the laws
aro beneficial for this reason, even
If they aro seldom applied.
"We have as many laws on our
books for the preservation of the
mprals of the community and the en
forcement of tho observation of the
Sabbath and the general moral up
building of the community as any
state in .ic Union," said a prominent
la'wyer Sunday, "but there is a long
list of them that are completely ig
nored and have become practically
obsolete. And town ordinances, any
councilman or citizen can get most
any ordinance passed along tnese
lines without a dissenting voice. But
after they are passed, they are for
gotten or ignored, and many of them
are dead letters.
The officers aro not to blnmo. Tho , jr;
community Is responsible. The ma-1 J1
joiity in this country rule. What theism
majority desires or says must go.
The public pulse Is examined by the.
officers with all of the care of that
or a patient by a .skilled physician,
and officers who are elected by this
public, try to cany out Its desires
and .necessities, if they should not.
the public, which rules, would find
officers that would do its bidding.
"It is true that many of tho public
would have the whole matter changed,
would enforce the laws to ine letter,
would purify the comunity at any
cost and enforce the laws if it should
revolutionize the whole community,
but a majority look upon the matter
from a different point of view, or are
careless, or are weak-kneed, or are
out and out in sympathy with a wide
open community.
"And it would revolutionize the
community should all of the laws on
the statute books be put in force to
morrow. Here are a few of tho laws
that are ignored, some of them wholly
and some of them in a way
"The Sabbath laws, laws against
the social evil. laws against gam
bling, laws against bribery, laws un
der which licenses are Issued to
saloons, laws governing prize-flghtin
disturbing religious worship, selling
lottery tickets, selling liquors and
firearms to Indians, election Iawb.
selling liquors near fair grounds, dis
orderly conduct or obscene language
in presence of women, destroying
trees, fences and breaking window
panes, cruelty to animals, and a dozen
or more others.
"City ordinances also cover these
laws-and include many more that are
ignored.
"Suppose that all of these laws and
ordinances were enforced to tho
letter tomorrow," said tho legal gen.
tlemeu. '"Only druggists and restaur
ants and hotels would be open on
Sundays. Eveiy man guilty of any
of the social evils would be placed
under arrest. The houses of doubt
ful character would be closed with a
firm hand. Every man that entered
a rooming house, save for the pur
pose of spending a virtuous night of
repose would be arrested. Every
saloon that should fall to close Its
doors, both rear and front, and all
side entraucos Saturday night at 12
and remain closed until Sunday night
at 12 o'clock, would be pounced upon
and the proprietor or person in
charge arrested. Every person caught
playing cards in any room, or adjoin
ing any room where linuors are sold
would be escorted to tho jail, pro
vided lie did not give ample seeuri
ty.
"Auy merchant who should sell as
much as a collar button within these
hours would meet with like fate. The
drug store could remain open, but
could only sell medicines. The sale
of a cigar or a toothpick would sub
ject tho proprietor to a fine. The
restaurant men and hotel men could
only serve a. meal where good whole
some food was required. No wine,
no beer, no cigar after the meal.
"Every man who should use ob
scene language within the hearing of
a woman would bo Immediately ar
rested. It matters not whether he
should know she was near or not. If
he should use such language on tho
street while she should chance to bo
passing ho would be subject to the
fine
"If the letter of the law was en
forced." continued tho gentleman,

as has never been experienced here
before. Tno restrictions In granting
saloons licenso are such that should
they be enforced two-thirds of the
saloons in Pendleton, would bo closed
tomorrow, for their licenses wpuld be
revoked. Prize-fighting is absolutely
prohibited in tills state, though we
frequently have "boxing contests" to
a finish. Tho sale of lottery tickets
is absolutely prohibited, yet one may
purchase a hundred a day in most
.cities if he so desires. The sale of
opium is prohibited, yet hundreds
go to their graves annually the vic
tims of 'dope.' Carrying concealed
weanons is prohibited, yet there. !s
scarcely a 'young blood' that has not
a gun in his pocket at times. There
is a statute against injuring trees,
breaking fences and windows, yet
this law is violated witli Impunity
every day. The law against cruelty
to animals is a dead letter.
"There is a staute against selling
liqours and firearms and ammunition
to Indians, yet if the offender !b not
prosecuted by the government for
the first olfense, tho state never looks
after it. And there has never been
a prosecution against any one for
selling Indians firearms or ammuni
tion. "Any one guilty of selling liquor, or
giving it away on election day vio
lates the law. Any person guilty ot
disorderly conduct near tho olection
rolls violates the law. If all who aro
guilty of these offenses wero arrested,
the day after election would llnd
large portion of the population in
jail, and some of tho officers-elect
with it.
"The mo3t stringent of ail of thes(
laws is the one requiring olilcoru to
enforce them. They uro required to
take an oatli belore entering upon tno
discharge of their duties that they
will enforce all of these laws. Any
violation coming within their knowl
edge, they aro required to Invent!
gate and make arrests. Thoy aro not
required to wait for complaint, but
must look after tho matter them
selves.
"Suppose tho officers should do
this? They genoially know every
thing that Is going on. Suppose that
the officers next Sunday should place
under arrest every man that opens a
place of business except tho ones
enumerated In tho statutes? Sup
pose he should arrest today every
man guilty of any of the violations ot
tho statute regulating the social ovll?
Suppose be should arrest every per
son guilty of any of the offenses enu
merated In these 'Ignored' stautos?
Would It not create a involution in
social, business and court circles?"
Yet the officers are not to blame
continued tho gentleman, "tho public
rules, and whatever It says must go.
If It demands that certain laws
must bo ignored it must be obeyed.
There is no other tribunal to which
to appeal. The time may come when
all of theso laws may bo enforced,
and moro stringent ones, besides, hut
It Is evident that that time is In the
future."
