FESTIVAL OF NEW LIFE
; (By Dr. William E. Barton.)
Nd iHAix, nowever sKepiicai or oDtuse, can wholly escape
the spirit of Easter. He may hold his peace, but the very
' stones cry out- ifie cola, dead earth wakes to new life,
tnd the spirit of the resurrection is in every blade of grass and
every song of bird. ; , , ,
' , Let us not trouble ourselves too carefully concerning the pre
cise form of the wonder that occurred 1900 years ago. The
question is not, Did Jesus rise? but. Is Jesus Living?
Un that first Laster the world s hope rose from the dead
The hopes of the disciples lay in a tomb, and a great stone was
t tne door, tor 1900 years that stone has been removed, and
an angel has been sitting upon it, proclaiming to men that the
.Lord of life lives. .........
It is not simply the dogma of a sect; it is part and parcel of
tne Dircnngnt 01 numanity tne f.ope that springs anew at
Robert G. Ingersoll stood at his brother's grave, and asked
the centuries' old question, "If a man die, shall he live again?"
; Ke had to answer, "Reason says, Perhaps; and Love whis
pers, Yes. , '
i. Lt no man scolf at the faith of the great apostle of doubt
for that answer.
It is not so wonderful that life should exist after death as it
is that we should believe that it exists. God might have a mil
lion wondrous things in store for us which we could not possibly
understand. We live in a world where death surrounds us on
every side. How can we possibly think of life after death? The
wonder is not that it should exist, but that we should believe
that it exists. The fact is less wonderful than the faith. Yet
there is hardly a tribe on earth so low in the social or spiritual
rcale that it does not believe In life after death. "
means an individual productivity of $400 a year. With 750,000
men turned from military idleness to productive labor, this
should mean an additional national income of $300,000,000.
Add this to the actual saving of military expenditure and we
have much more than the lirst two annual instalments demand
ed, and almost exactly the annual instalments of 8,000,000,000
marks stipulated for the years 1923 to 1925." ,e.
If Germany can make this saving through compulsory dis
armament, it is a mighty good. argument for disarmament and
the allies sought to adopt voluntarily the thing they are enforc
in? upon their late enemy. - ,.r ;, .
- The tenor of the German replies on the indemnity question
are far from satisfactory to those who feel Germany should
pay for the damage wrought; the German purpose is to escape
any just reparation payment and the bill collector may have to
jse rather strenuous methods. ....
FEAR OREGON WILL SUFFER
THE Salem Capital Journal takes the view of Senator Eber
hart of this joint district that the legislature of Oregon
made a mistake in not passing the anti-Japanese bill at
tie last session.
I This vitriolic criticism of the senate recently appeared, as an
editorial in the Salem paper:
Thanks to the cowardice of the Oregon senate, Oregon is now threatened
vlth a real Japanese invasion. California passed an anti-alien land law at
the l;u general election. The Washington legislature has followed suit, and
faps, barred from acquiring property In California and Washington are turn
ing to Oregon.
Senator McN'ary is probably to blame for leaving Oregon the open-door for
alien Invasion. He wired the legislature the opinion that such action by Ore
gon would gravely embarrass the national administration in its treaty making
with J a paii. How could it? California, fooled lor 20 years by the national gov
ernment, had already acted, and it was impossible for Oreaon to add further
While Oregon was stiU dVbating the alien land law, Texas passed it. And
Washington has now followed with a similar law. But the pleas of Lodge
lot McNary and the commercialium of the Portland Chamber of Commerce,
Ivhirh does not hesitate to sacrifice the future for present gain, prevailed.
There is one way Hi which the anti-Jap bill can be put on the statutes
and that is by Initiative at the next general election. The American Legion
sponsored the bill In the legislature. Let the American Legion initiate the
measure. It has all (he machinery for securing signatures. That la what the
initiative was designed for 4o secure laws when the legislature failed to act.
meanwhile we lose two years in order to "prevent embarrassment of the ad
jaii"ratin." t The above language may be a trifle immoderate but with
California, Washington and Texas in line on the subject it looks
like our legislature overlooked something. - .
i HOW GERMANY CAN PAY
In a letter to the county court V. T.
George, Kcho merchanVcallg attention
to the need of guard rails und anger
signs on the new highway between
rendlcton and, Echo. ilr. George's
letter is as follows: , ' '
County Judge, r
Echo, March 23, 1921.
My Dear Sir:
Please pardon the liberty I assume
in addressing you thus but I can't re
sist asking if our County Court of the
State Highway Commission is respon
sible for the up-keep of the highway
between Echo and Pendleton. The
reason I ask is the many discussions
which come to me from the various
people who travel It and who express
surprise that there are no guard rails
or danger signs anywhere along the
way and there must be at least twenty
places between here and Pendleton
that are exceedingly dangerous and
there is apt to be, with the motoring
season right on nana, a great many
accidents if the proper precautions
are not taken to avoid them.- It docs
seeai to the writer that It's a matter
of grave importance that should be
taken care of at once, in order to
avoid a heavy damage suit that some
body may be liable for. With proper i
guard rails and danger signals along
the many dangerous curves and nar
row places might have quite a ten
dency to eliminate accidents and
bring people to the full realisation of
the situation and perhaps chock up
some of the speed kings who are a
regular menace to the common travel.
1 trust that' you will accept this in the
spirit intended and not in any sense
of criticism, but ! do think it's a mat
ter for the proper authorities to give
Yours very sincerely.
F. T. GKOIIGE.
RIGHT UP I
THERE seems to be a fcig difference of opinion as to whether
or not Germany can pay the huge indemnity levied against
' her by the allies. .
Without giving consideration to Germany's own plaints on
the subject, some authorities contend that it will be impossible
for the people of that nation to meet the demands of the victors
trd that to require them to try to do so would be folly,
y The New York Evening Post, however, is one that opposes
this view and presents some very reasonable argument in de
fense of the German ability to pay. This paper calls attention
to "the enormous saving enforced upon Germany by the reduc
tion of her army and the virtual disappearance of her navy."
"In 1913 the German military and naval budget was almost
exactly $500,000,000," it goes on to Kay. "The army then num
bered 800,000 men. The naval strength was nearly 75,000 men.1
The army now numbers 100,000 men. In other words, on Jhe
trinament budget alone Germany ought to save perhaps as
much as f 400,000,000 a year, which is almost the annual instal
ment for the first two years. But beyond that there is the im
portant consideration that German disarmament means the re
iue of 750,000 men from the barracks and war-fleet for pro
ductive purposes. In 1913 Helfferich estimated the annual in
come of the German people at $10,000,000,000. For a nation
l? 25,000,000 workers, speaking in rough approximation this
