AS AN aftermath of recent brutal murders, there is
popular outcry for the restoration of capital punish
ment in Oregon by the repeal of the initiative law abolish
Abolition of the extreme-penalty is not the sole cause
of crime but accoi'ding to admissions of convicted mur
derers, a contributing cause.
The law is evidently too altruistic for humanity as
at present constituted. It has apparently acted as a stim
ulus to homicidal degenerates whose existence is a men
ace to society, and upon whom leniency and kindness are
With or without capital punishment, homicides con
tinue, but there is no question but that the fear of the
gallows acts as a deterant to the born criminal. Know
ledge that his own neck is safe, makes him take a chance.
Human nature has not materially changed in. the
7000 years of recorded history. The baked clay cylin
ders of ancient Babylon and Egypt record the story of a
civilization not fundamentally different from our own and
portray the annals of a people whose daily life, though
not so complex, was similar to the life of today.
They reveal humanity much the same as today, the
same primal passions and impulses, the same natures, the
same ambitions and aspirations, the same laws, the same
crimes and penalties. The apparent changes are more or
That human nature has not changed and that civil
ization is only a veneer to cover the beast, was proved
during the war, when the Germans relapsed to scientific
savagry and re-enacted the role of brutality enacted by
Egyptians and Babylonians in ravagiing the woild thou
sands of years before Christ preached the brotherhood of
Some day perhaps we will be intelligent enough to
prevent crime by abolishing the cause, but humanity has a
long road to travel toward progress before society will
be safe without punishments to fit the crime.. As long as
degenerates, perverts and criminals are born and turned
loose to scourge society for its sins, just so long is the
spectre ot the gallows necessary to safeguard the innocent.
The assertion in the Capital Journal editorial of No
vember 20, that the president had the power to declare
war, should hav read "congress alone has the power to
declare war"" the intent being to show" that the con
stitutional powers of president and congress could not be
modified by the peace treaty or by the Lodge reservations.
