Entered as second, class mail
matter September 2,' 1914, at the
postoflke at Maupin, Oregon, un
der the Act of March 3, 1879.
Free speech mid the free prcm
arrf a ticked fnun two different an
gles in the United States and (it.
Britain. In the latter country the
exigencies of war are pleaded in
defence of a censorHliip which for
liid pu'blicutiiin in the riewpuperi
of any reports or discussion of pro
ceedings of lliu Caoinet or Parlia
ment in' secret pension. New regu
lations make such publication a
crime punit-hiible by heavy penal
lies. Tim press in Ureal Brituiri
is gaged as it lias not been since
tiie diii of Charles I. The censor
Kl.'p is di f'Midi d on IIih ground
Uiiil it, in iieue.-pary to prevent
publication of information useful
to the enemy. In fact it is used
to suppres facts which are well
known to the enemy, but which
form the basis of legitimate criti
cism of the government, which
thus confounds iis duty to defend
the country ith its jn.terest in
perpetuating itsWn power.
Similar restrictions on liberty of
press are attempted in the United
States by public officials grasping
after power and by bigcts, politi
cal, religious or social, who cannot
endure criticism of thoir own be
liefs. The perfectly proper inter
dict on use of the mails for fraud
or circulation of obscene or sedi
tious matter has suggested to these
bigots a censorship of all adverse
comment on their own creeds. A
bill has been introduced in Con
gress, one section of which provides
that whenever a written complaint
is made to tbe Postmastcr-Generul
that auy publication "making use
of or being, carried through the
mails" contains any article there
in which tends to expose any race,
creed or religion to either hatred,
contempt),, ridicule or obloquy"
that ollfoial shall forthwith cause
an investigation, and if the allega
tion made is found correct he shall
within twenty days forbid "tin
further use of the mails to an)
This bill would make the Post
master General a censor of all
writings on race, religion or creed,
and creed might be construed to
cover any subject of discussion.
He Would bo the sole judge of what
would '"expose any race, creed or
religion to either hatred,, contempt
ridicule or obloquy.' lie might
stretch his powers to the suppres
sion of discussion on the charat'er
i' ticB of various races, on arjy re
ligion or creed or on any political
or economical tenets which might
be termed a creed. A law such as
is proposed would destroy liberty
of speech and of the press one of
the dearest rights for which the
Revolutions ry war was f 6 tight and
which are guaranteed by the Con
stitution. The law provides ample remedy
iii the court if for any' persons
damaged by abuse of this right,
To give a partisan official authori
ty over transmission by mail of all
all controversial matter would be
to get up an inferable tyranny.
Funny things-1 we'hrinians? are,
ain't we? Seems like vc all ought
to be friends, instead of that most
of ns are enemies just lfke a
Tck of blizzards, every one of us
a-watchinjr' for some! ctlier' poor
weak brother cf sister to ' make a
wrong move. Then we are down
on them like grim ' death and the
Scandalous toungues begin to wag.
Many a family has 'been broken up
bV these sluth-hoUnds' or character
thieves, for they are nothing but
thieves iri the worst form, as they
steal1 the most precious thing their
neighbor posSsses their repuVattdii
and character.' These scandal
uiorfgSf's do Hot stop 1o think that

Why Not Face the Facts
About Armor Competition?
To the People:
Tho policy of the United States Government for many years has made' real competition in
The Government might have asked the three armor plants for bids and let the entire
tonnage to tho lowest bidder. That would have made competition effective.
The rcrnilt of such a course would have been to drive two of the three manu
facturers out of business, and leave the country with facilities of only one
plunt in time of need.
The Covornmcnt in fact has always asltcd for bida from
the three manufacturers, hut no matter what the price
quoted, each yearns business was divided among them.
Armor makers serve but one customer the Government, junt ua a public utilit
serves but one customer a' community.
The solution of the public utility problem is regulation of rates.
The solution of the armor problem is for the Government to fir the price.
We voluntarily agree to accept any price fixed by the Federal Trade. Commission.
Isn't uceeptanee of that offer better than the destruction of an industry built solely
to serve the Government?
