Washington, Ort. 21 — An ap­
peal to the American Government
and people to protect the Catholic
clergy and church in Mexico and
demamj reparation for outragen al­
ready committed wan tiled with
the State Department today by a
committee of the American Federa­
tion of Catholic Societies.
Describing the political condi­
tions which aro declared to he re­
sponsible (or the present stutu of
unrest in Mexico, the committee
asserted the attitude of the Roman
Catholic clergy has been one of
absolute neutrality, striving only
to teach the uneducated clostln
oliedience and respect for constitu
ted nutlurity.
“The revolution which will short­
ly be in control of the government
in Mexico,” says the statement,
“has proclaimed, us n necessary
means for the establishment and
working out of it« programme, the
suppression of three classes which
army, the Roman Catholic party
und the large land holders.
“The recent revolution differs
from those that preceded it only in
being more radical. The present
generation of revolutionists are
thor» uglily imbued with anti-Chris­
tian and anti-spiritull principles.
They are, therefore, enemies of all
religion and e speci all y the Catholic
religion They propose at any
cost to uproot the Catholic religion
from the hearts of tile people.
“The priests of u 11 the places
which have I teen occupied by the
revolutionists have beeu expelled
i it a body ami without trial. They
h a v e been robbed of everything
they possessed. Many of them
have been lliiowu into prison.
Others have been tortured. Borne
have been killed. Churches have
been turned into batracks and
stables. In Behuayo, Michocati,
eleven priests were threatened with
death if they would not pay a ran­
som. The bishop of Zacatecus was
also subjected to ransom but had
nothing to give. The Catholics
freed them from captivity with the
money they had gathered in order
t» placate the revolutionists.”
In conclusion tho appeal said:
Wo trust that the American peo­
ple will realise that they are in
hont r bound to defend us, to de­
mand aatisfactiou for the flagrant
violation of the recommendations
which were made by them to Car­
ranza and his followers.”
The Dental Trust, with all its powerful pol­
itical organization, is moving heaven and earth
to defeat the dental reform bill.
In every town and city members off the
Trust are out working against the bill.
The Medicai Trust is helping the Dental

All kinds off campaign lies are being cir­
culated to deceive the voters. Don’t let the
Trust scare you.
The Trust made the present dental law.
Under this law it controls the State Board of
Dental Examiners, every member of that board
is a member of the Trust.
In this way competent dentists are kept
out of Oregon, and the Trust prevents com-
petion and keeps up prices.
