ABRAHAM LINCOLN said: !
"ThFamily is the corner-stone of social order and the guaranty
of public safety. No Government cau take the place of the Parent, and .
should never be permitted to usurp it." (Speech at Quincy, Ills., 1859.)
The results of the campaign against the ao-callcd Compulsory Edu
cation Bill, which is in fact a Bill to Ettabliah State Monopoly of Educ
tion, may be grouped under two heads i
Tht FACTS DEMONSTRATED, no Inngei
striously disputed by anybodv. arc these
That the Bill ftas given a False Title, to mis
lead the public and deceive the voters.
That it in no respect pretends to improve the
existing law as to the Public,Schools. but simply
destroys the Private Schools.
That not one cent of public money goes to the
support of any private or parochial school in this
State, or ever has, or ever can. under the plain
prohibition of the Constitution and laws
That it will increase taxation at least $1,1100,000
each year, and require from $3,000,000 to S4.0O0,.
000 investment in new public school buildings.
That it vests in the County Superintendents ar
bitrary and unappealable power to grant special
privileges to the wealthy and influential, by
ivhich they will be exempt from the law
That it will prevent parents from educating
their children in private schools both inside and
outside of the State, as they cannot even send
their children elsewhere to be educated
That so far ifom being united in support of the
nll. the Masonic Fraternity in the State is di
vided, many of the leading Masons are openly
Opposed to it. and the Grand Master of the State
Grand lodge has publicly denied thai the Grand
Lodge indorsed it. j
That the best elements in the social, religious,
educational, and political life of the Slate are op
posed to the measure. I
That the educational leaders, inside and outside
ef the State, are opposed to the Bill Dr. Nicholas
Murray Butler, of Columbia University, says: 'Mi
should be called a Bill to render the American
system of education impossible in Oregon " The
Presidents of Yale. Princeton. Chicago. Lelantl
Stanford and other great Universities have em
phatically condemned it. '
That the private schools, under the exist'inu
law, are reiiircd to conform their course of stud
ies to the public schools standards, the English
language is made compulsory, and they are sub
ject to the inspection and supervision of the Stat
That the proposed law will close up every
orphan asylum, home for defective and dependent
children, and other private charities, where an
elementary instruction of the inmates is at
tempted. Thai it destroys the rights of minorities, the most
vital and valuable principle of Americanism, and the
one that has preserved this country from the tyrannv
of Old World Governments '
THE ARGUMENTS UNANSWERED against
the bill are contained in the "Voters Pamphlet
issued by the State The chief points of the same
are as follows
t THE LUTHERAN ARGUMENT ' If you
sec fit lo send your child to a school in which your
religion is taught, not one day in the week, but
every day. and the whole training of the child is
permeated by such religion, the State, under the
Constitution, must not prohibit you from so do
ing This lull is manifestly unconstitutional "
. 2 THE PORTLAXDCiTIZENS AND TAX.
. PAYERS ARGUMENT "If the number of chil.
drcn now attending the public schools is to be in
creased by adding those now taught in the private
schools, it is inevitable that overcrowding must
result unless new buildings are supplied, and it IS
al'o certain that taves niuM be materially increased "
ST HELEN'S HALL (EPISCOPAL) AR
GUMENT "No invidious fact or condition affect
ing public interest has been called to our attention
that would furmr.h in the slightest degree an excuse
for the propo'M Ifcriitation "
4. THE PRINCIPALS OF PRIVATE
SCHOOLS' ARGUMENT "It is against the best
American ideal, of freedom, in that it denies to men
and women freedom of thought and action in the
choice of environment and influences lot their chil
, 5 THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS'
ARGUMENT. "We are not at all certain that a
man educated in the public school is more intelligent
than if he crc educated in a private or sectarian
school, nor have we heard any convincing argu
ment that a person is necessarily more patriotic ll
educated in a public school, than if he were edu
cated in a school not supported by public taxa

ts no occasion row for agitation that will estrange
old friends and neighbors, and that will divide our
people into classes and factions. No greater mis
fortune can befall us than movements calculated to

The State Conference ol the Methodist Episcopal
Church, at its meeting in Salem last August, refused

Upon the foregoing statement of the case we invoke the fair and intelli
gent judgment of the voters of Oregon, confident of the result if a regard
for the inherited and fundamental principles of reasonable liberty are lo
prevail in this state.
