"Third, space prevents going Into a
detailed review of statistics and the ex
periences of history which, however
when gone Into prove conclusively that
capital punishment Is not a deterrent
to the potential murderer. A persorH
seldom kills another with the expecta
tion that he will be punished at ail.
and if he does kill with a knowledge
that he will be punished the conilit.,
of the murderer's mind is such, an '
his passions are so aroused, that -,
punishment will act as a deterrent. Th,
greatest deterrent of crime, and par
ticularly of murder, Is to Instill deep
the minds of all people the self -inter
est served as well as the good morals
of doing right, and In the conserva
tion of human life by example and
precept to hold it sacred. Life Is the
only thing that once taken away man
or the state cannot restore.
"In concluding we would particular
ly urge upon the voters that they d
not vote on this measure in any splrl'
of prejudice or revenge. The duty ot
the citizen as well as the legisla or is
to so cast his vote that the highest an
best Interests of society and the atato
as such shall be safeguarded; and no
question of the rights or feelings or
wishes of the convicted murderer en.
ters into this matter.
"Taken on the whole, it is the belief
of the undersigned committee that th"
highest Interests of our state and the
best exercise of good citizenship will
be had and made by casting a negative
vote against this proposed amendment
to our constitution,"

Capital punishment was abolished
b u State of Oregon by the vote of
the people on Nevember 3, 1914. It
,hoaW be noted that this vote was
ma OB a general election day after a
jeiy thorough campaign had been
mailt ooth fur and against , and at
thick time as full a vote as might be
reasonably expected was cast. The vote
for abolishment of capital punishment
was 100,525 and the vote against wyis
100,355, or In other words capital pun
ishment was abolished In Oregon by
the slight margin ol 157 votes. j
"Because of a well defined call from i
the people for an opportunity to again
paa on the matter the legislature dur
ing its special session provided that the
question should again be submitted to
th oeoDle, as per the proposed am-
endiuent herein contained, but because i
of the further fact that the people naa
been so evenly divided on the proposi
tion in 1914 the legislature took it to
he fair both to opponents and propon

ARE you getting over a cold, grip
or influenza only to find yourself
a victim of backache? Are you suf
fering headaches, too. dizzy spells, a
dull, tired, worn-out feeling and an
noying kidney irregularities? Then
don't delay! Medical authorities agree
that a vast number of the worst cases
of kidney trouble are the result of
germ diseases. In every infectious
disease the system is alive with poisonous germs and bacteria. The kidneys are overwhelmed
with the rush of new work; they break down, become congested, inflamed and diseased. Too
often the real trouble is lost sight of until some dangerous kidney ailment sets in. If your kid
neys are falling behind, don't wait for serious trouble. Begin using Doom's Kidney Pills to
day! Doan's have helped thousands and should help you. Ask your neighbor! ; ;

I V Joseph Wlmv retire blacksmith, . !?. ". ;
says- "My back and. kidneys bothered me. My kidneys
were disordered and my back seemed to lose strength. A
short use of Doan's Kidney Pills soon put me right.", ,
OVER THREES TEARS LATER, Mr. Wlnt said: t'My
opinion of Doan's Kidney Pills Is just the same today - ,
it was wheir I gave my first endorsement I haven t had
any kidney trouble now for several years and I give
Doan's credit for bringing such lasting results.".
W. C. Johnston, gardner, 1021 Mill street, says:
"Taking cold and over-ex.-rflng myelf brought on kidney
trouble. For two years I suffered with pain In the small
of my back, right across my kidneys. My back ached
at night and In the morning I Wt tired and lume. I was
languid and nervous, also. Headaches and diassy spells
both-ied me and my sight blurred. The kidney secretions
didn't pass often enough nnd they contained sediment.
Finally I heard of Doan's Kidney Pills, and after taking
them, was grtatly relieved, lioan's sure are fine.
