When a candidate for the high office of governor bases his candidacy on certain
claims and promises as to what he will do if elected, the public is entitled to have his
claims analyzed and examined.
In this campaign, Walter Pierce has gone
about the country mdo-di amatically tearing tax
bills in two by way of illustrating what he will
do to taxes ii elected.
The voter, then, should analyze the tax mat
ter to the extent of becoming informed as to
just what part the governor plays in imposing
or reducing taxes.
In the first place, the voter should know that
the total levy in Oregon for 1922 is $40,473,906.
This is a reduction of over $1,500,000 from
last year, so that it will be seen the high cost of
government following the war is already reced
ing. Of this 1922 levy of 40 million, over 31 mil
lion was for county, city and school district
purposes, over which the governor could have
no possible control whatever.
Of the remaining 9 million for state purposes,
only Z2 million are taxes over which the legis
lature has any discretion, and of this amount,
only 2H million are for the actual expenses of
state government and might, therefore, in even
the remotest degree, be charged to the methods
employed by the governor in administering the
state's affairs.
In passing, it should be noted that this state
levy is an increase of 41 per cent, since 1916.
and not several hundred per cent, as stated on
various occasions by the democratic candidate.
It should also be noted that less than half of
this 41 per cent occurred during Mr. Olcott's
administration. This ability to keep down the
cost of the state government to so small an
increase, when living expenses in the ordinary
home in the same period increased over 100 per
cent, is a most creditable showing.
It is proper at this point to examine Mr.
Pierce's own record on taxes and see if past
actions as a legislator square with his words.
Of the $9,376,289 of state taxes for 1922,
which include the millage taxes, MR. PIERCE
$8,564,039, or 92 per cent. He had no chance
at most of the other 8 per cent
Of the 1922 state taxes, Pierce introduced
bills accounting for $1,429,126, or 15 per cent.
In" addition to this, he voted for tax bills
introduced by others to the amount of $6,114,-
109, and he has given his public approval on
numberless occasions of measures passed since
he was returned from the legislature causing
taxes amounting to $1,020,804, making a total
of state taxes approved by Pierce of $8,864,038,
or 92 per cent of the total 1922. There is no
telling how much of the remainder he might
have approved if he had had a chance, and it
may be significant that the state taxes have
decreased over 11 per cent since Mr. Pierce was
retired from the State Senate.
Mr. Pierce has always been a consistent tax
booster. He voted against only three per cent
of all the appropriations of the 1919 session of
the legislature and voted for all the appropria
tions of the 1920 special session.
In 1917 Mr. Pierce introduced a bill to exempt
money, notes, mortgages and accounts from
taxation. Vet he poses as being anxious to
take the burden off real estate!
He voted for submission of $400,000 bond
Issue to build a new penitentiary.
Mr. Olcott, at no TAX expense and with
prison labor, has fixed up the old penitentiary
in excellent shape for another 25 years.
Mr. Pierce voted against accepting road ma
chinery from the government. That machinery
now amounts in value to $1,800,000.
The above are but a few of the extravagances
of Pierce. Mr. Olcott, on the other hand, has
conducted the business of the state in an eco
nomical, sane and business-like manner. He
has saved the state thousands of dollars because
of his level-headedness and his intimate knowl
edge of state affairs. He built a new Boys'
Industrial School Building by diversion of a
millage fund, and therefore, without a single
cent additional tax. He has insisted upon devel
opment of the various state farms connected
with the state institutions until the present year
shows the unprecedented income from this
source of $491,511. He is no talker, no politi
cian, no idle promiaer and is not seeking re-election
under false pretenses nor catering to preju
dice, but is going to the people on his own
splendid record, confident that if he can but get
that record and Mr. Pierce's record before the
voters of Oregon that he will be vindicated on

Organization Formed to State
Opposing Side to Voters
of Oregon.
Opposition on the part of various
Protestant denominations to the pro
posed compulsory education bill, so
called, is being carried on through nn
organization formed In Portland, with
headquarters In the Consolidated
Securities building. Its purpose Is to
state to the voters of Oregon tho ob
jections of those whom It represents
to the passage of the measure.
W. L. Brewster, .former city com
missioner of Portland, member of
the public library board and lawyer
of prominence, is chairman. Joseph
A. Hill, principal of Hill Military
academy, Portland, a non-sectarian
school for boys, Is executive secretary.
Members representing various Pro
testant Interests Include Richard V.
Montague, James Stapleton, Frederick
Strong, H. G. Thurston, F. W. J. Syl
vester, W. J. Henderson and Mabel
Holmes Parsons.
A statement just Issued through this
office Says, briefly:
The proposed bill Is fundamentally
un-American, as it undertakes to de
prive certain people of the right to
send their children to schools where
religion is a part of the training.
It would close all private schools
of whatsoever denomination or non
sectarian institutions, such as the Hill
Military academy.
It Is unnecessary; upsets the theory
of our government; fosters intolerance,
bigotry and invites religious contro
versy. Its provisions would place on tax
payers of Oregon more than $1,000,
000 additional taxes to care for tha
several thousand pupils now in tho
various private-schools of the state;
new buildings would be required and
a large added teaching staff.
Above all, it iu unconstitutional, and
harks back to witchcraft days when
burning, at. the ..stake -.was . the .fate
of many who believed differently than
,others and dared to exercise their
rights.; it' is inconceivable ' that the
voters of- generous Oregon will put
the brand of religious bigotry and in
tolerance upon this fair stat3.
pect competition.

WHY? ,
Why Is it sought by certain people
In Oregon to revolutionize our edu
cational scheme by means of tho in
lllntive bill whi h proposes to do away
with all private schools?
Such a bill will be on the ballot
November 7.
Eut why close tho private schools,
many of which have been doing their
magnificent work of teaching a com
bination of education In material
things, with an element of the reli
gious featured?
Thus fan, there has been no satis
factory answer but there ought to
be, if the proponents of this measure
wish the voters of Oregon to dose up
such well-established schools as the
Hill Military academy and St. Helen's
Hall and others which have for years
stood for the best in everything.
The so-called compulsory school
bill would close all private schools in
Oregon. Can we afford such action?
