OEOROB PUTNAM, Editor and Publisher
Letting In the Sunlight
Believing that in morals as in medicine there is no anti
ceptic like the sunlight, The Capital Journal will begin
publication July 15 of "The Modern Ku Klux Klan" by
H. P, Fry (Copyright 1922 by Small, Maynard & Co.) an
luthoritatve and historical expose of this attempt to capitalize
religious bigotry and racial annimosity for the financial
profit of a little coterie of grafters at Atlanta, Georgia, and
another little coterie of politicians in Oregon.
It is now apparent to any observer that the Ku Klux Klan
movement is unquestionably the most sinister and baneful
proposition that has ever been started in this country.
Wherever it obtains a foothold, conditions become intolerable.
There have been many secret societies founded upon religious
prejudice, and many political movements, but the combina
tion of the two, with its ultra secrecy, lies about member
' ship, masked violence, secret espionage of citizens and the
private attempt to regulate the morals of the community by
sewing-up the law enforcing branches of the government,
and its effort to seize political power by appeal to racial and
religious intolerance, make it the most dangerous and
anarchistic scheme ever launched.
Mr. Fry is the author of the New York World expose of
the Ku Klux Klan that caused the congressional investigation
and that won for the World the Pulitzer award and gold
medal for the "most disinterested and meritorious public
service rendered by any newspaper during the year." To
the facts gathered by the World have been added many later
developments and the history of the Ku Klux Klan of civil
war times.
The publication is understaken so that the people of this
vicinity may know the truth about this secret organization
which is powerful enough to coerce the press of Portland into
a shameful silence, as welll as run the pojitics and school
system of the metropolis. Once again the people must turn
from the big city papers to the small country papers to learn
the truth.
Concerning the Ku Klux Klan and its propagandst
lecturer, who peddles his poison for 55 cents per head and
printed copies of his spiel for a dollar extra. typical of the
cash in advance klan system the Eugene Guard says :
R. H. Sawyer Is back again, telling the more gullible people a lot
of pernicious falsehoods which tend to stir up Btrlfe, racial and
religious. In a community. He la a professional talker and fakir,
having Jumped from one religious denomination to another, until he
Iuih finally landed where such men always end their careers, as a
religious agitator, and the tool of cheap politicians. If there was
any truth In the statemnt made by Mr. Sawyer, then his organization
would be no less dangerous than It Is, because It U a secret political
order, and such tjrders, which nominate nd endorse candidates for
public offices behind locked doors are a menace to the very govern
ment Itself.
There Is no objection, legal or otherwise, to any citizen who
dislikee the Catholic expressing his opinion and governing his vot
accordingly, provided he does It openly and above-board. Neither is
the man or woman who harbors a resentment against the Jews
colored people, or any foreign element or religious creed prohibited
from expressing It and refusing aa an Individual to vote tor
member of such race or subscribe to such a creed. But when me
baud themselves together In secret societies to control elections, t
boycott and restrict the rights of citizenship guaranteed by th
federal constitution they are anyythlng but real Americans. In truth
most of the Becrot orders of this character have as their active mem
bershlp naturalized citizens whho do not yet know the real meaning
of Americanism, In its broader Bence.
It is a safe prediction that this man Sawyer, If he Is really
iucere crusader for religious and racial Intolerance Is not a native
born American. It he were he would have learned that the most
effective way to protect one's own right to think ind act with entire
Independence, within the law, Is to fight the battle of the othe
fellow when his constitutional rights are attacked. That Is why the
most strenuous opponent of Ku Kluxlmn are neither Catholics, Jews,
nor Negroes, but plain Americans who are Jeulously guarding thel
own liberties against possible assault by Intolerance and bigotry
because the lite of the republic la dependent upon these guarantees
As to the masked night riders of the Klau being a necessary adjunct
to law enforcement, that would be a Joke If It did not occasionally
end in tragedy.
In this connection and in reply to misstatements of Mr
Sawyer while in Salem, The Capital Journal is not pro
Catholic, pro-Jew nor pro any other religious sect, nor is it
pro-negro, nor pro-Jap nor pro-other foreigner, nor is it
pro-secret society of any kind. It believes in the racial and
religious tolerance made the law of the land by the federal
constitution and is merely seeking to safe-guard the liberty
therein vouchsafed.

Why Gates Was Dismissed
( From the Portland Spectator.)
From Medford comes a letter
which says The Spectator did it
self a great Injustice last week in
printing the story headed "The
C.overnor, Dad Gates, and the
Klau." Well, there were four par
ties to the article-Governor 01
colt. Mayor Gates of Medford, the
KKK, and The Spectator and If
Injustice was done any of them,
I am glad it was the Spectator.
"In your story," the letter states,
"It Is said that Gates Is not a
member of the KKK You are mis
informed. Gate does belong to
what you call "the pillow slipped
and bed sheeted gang,' and In
joining that crowd of lawless
tlgota he violated the official
oath which ha took to give us all
a square deal, and is now pledg
ed to the klan to persecute Catho
lics and Jews and other citizens,
who. even If they were not born
In thia country, art as good Am
ericans as la be or any others of
his masked gang. I was not born
In America, but I am a natural
ized eitizeu. and I volunteered to
tight for my adopted country, and
in the Argonne I was baptized
American In my own blood. Now
this bigot. Gates, who you say Is J
a gooa citizen, ana nis pillow cas
ed and bed sheeted gang say I am
not enough American to enjoy the
right of citizenship. Gates Is a ku
lux, and for confirmation of this
from the ritual afterward to be
sure that I was getting It as It
really was. I believe that with the
class of ten that went In at the
time, we received It In Its entire
I said I did not believe C. E
Gates was a member of the ku
klux, and based my belief on
Gates' own statement, and on pos
itive dentals of his klan affilia
tious made to me by some of hit
friends. From the quotation made
by my correspondent. It arpears
mat i.ates original statement
was untrue, and that his friends,
who had been deliberately de
ceived, unwittingly, misled others
to his klan connections.
All that need be added to that
Is that Governor Olcott had posi
tive Information that Gates was
a member of the klan, and In dis
missing him acted for the good of
the service, and in doing so has
the hearty approval of a great
majority of our citizens.
Talking it Over
"Jim," remarked lavl, reflect
ively, to Clavering that evening
at the club, "that little tragic
drama enacted at Claire Adams'
grave thia afternoon has given me
a decidedly creepy feeling.
'There, at the head of the
grave, stood the man who had kill
ed her, tears streaming down his
face while he muttered:-'I didn't
mean to do It. Claire, I didn't
mean to do It,' Meanwhile, just
a few feet away, Bitting far back
in my coupe, sobbing with tears
also streaming down her face, was
the wife of the man who was per
haps more to blame than the slay
er. "I was afraid some of the re
porter would learn that Doris
was there, but she insisted upon
staying. As good luck would have
it they didn't recognize either of
us. I think they were too occu
pied by the services at the gTave.
"Jim," continued Davis, "I will
never again say that I know any
thing about women or that I
have the least idea how any one
of them will act under given cir
cumstances. 'I have seen Doris Glendening
treat some old friend of Harry's
with snobbish contempt. Yet here
she was, not only pitying her ri
val but seemingly to actually
grieve for her.
" 'Poor thing,' she exclaimed.
'Poor, poor woman! I wonder If.
where she Is now, she Is conscious
of all this. I wonder if she thinks
it is worth while.
' 'I do not think nature is fair
to her.
I' 'I do not think nature is fair
to us poor women, John. She gives
us some sort of reasoning power
that is much too Inadequate to
fight against our physical Inclina
tions; much too slow in battling
with magnetic attraction, and
much too stolid to really under
Htand that the tingle and thrill
of nervous tension usually pres
ages danger.' "
"Great Scott. John," exclaimed
Clavering. "I had no Idea that
Doris Glendening ever stopped to
analyze anything. If I thought
about her mind at all, I thought
she was too brain-lazy to exercise
it. If she had talked like that to
Harry, she probably would have
held him. You know he is a shark
for the women who analyzes and
ihowa -mind as well as good looks
and Doris is good broking
fahe also has a brain, Jim, al
though she has almost let It atro
phy by her calm satisfaction in
her own way of living her life
I hope this tragedy has knocked
lome of the pins out from under
her ego and that there will be
lome sort of compromise patched
up between Harry and herself.
iou Know habit Is one of the
strongest forces In the world
Harry has the 'habit' of Doris' If
nothing else, although I don't
think he could ever be true to one
I have been wondering if
Harry is going to pull out," in
terrupted Clavering. "I still think
that here is the logical place from
which Harry Glendening ought to
nart on the 'great adventure
Life can give him no more thrills
aud from now on they will be few
er and milder.
"But Fate evidently has some
thing yet in store for him on this
earth, for he was decidedly better
this afternoon. He was not delir
ious and seemed to realize everv-
tning that had happened, al
though he did not know that .Mrs.
Adams had been murdered. When
told that she was dead he whis
pered to himself: 'It should have
been I.'
When I got to the hosnltnl.
the first question he asked was:
IJo the doctors think I am going
W pull through' There was no
particular eagerness In his voice
as ho asked It, only a kind of cur
ious epeculation about the future.
It was the first time in all
the years that I had known him
that I had the faintest inklimr
that Harry Glendening had eveT
meu to iook one nour ahead of
the present."
Not even when he was des
cribing the Joys of Quito, Jim?"
asked Davis cynically.
'Oh that was merelv a nart
of the technic of his campaign of
love making. You can see that
from the way he told the Quito
story to both Margaret and Claire
Adams. Whether he meant it to
one or both of them, I cannot tell
but H seems to me as though he
were making a kind of story that
would interest the girl at the
ime of his speaking. As long as
the girl who interested him at
he time would leu him make love
to her, I do not think he cared
whether they were in Quito or
Kamchatski or here.

is held to his lips.
I expect that the newspapers
have had a fine time with me,
Jim. Did they show me up beautifully?'
Well, I must admit, Harry.
that you have been making splen
did copy and headlines during the
last few days."
"Harry turned his face to the
wall with a groan, and I went
over to Milt's room.
"'I think, Jim," Milt exclaimed
as he put a number of clippings
which the nurse had evidently cut
from the papers, 'that I will cable
Margaret. It is more than prob

papers will get some of this, and
I would hate to have her worry.
"I told Milt I had cabled Mar

to me that Harry had about being

glad that Harry had come out of

would be no danger for his speak

Earle's name from being connect

said Davis. "He always seems to
be afraid of the 6peech of people:
he has always given his wife the
very best care, and he always
seems to take himself to task for
