    The Candidates
for Governor
VffHEN a candidate for public office makes a campaign
promising what he will do if elected, it is fitting and
proper that the voter examine the public records to ascer
tain whether or not the candidate's record squares with his
campaign promises. In the present campaign Candidate
Pierce professes to be the apostle of lower taxes.
Mr. Pierce's Record
Of the $9,376,000 of state taxes
for 1922, Mr. Pierce specifically
approved of $8,564,039. This is
92 per cent of the total. Mr.
Pierce had no opportunity to vote
on the other S per cent, as he was
not a membtir of the legislature
when it was Up for vote.
, He voted for 97 per cent of all
tax appropriation bills of the 1919
session of the legislature, and for
all the appropriation bills of the
special session of 1920.
In the last few years he voted
for 189 salary increases.
He voted against the bills to
consolidate the state bureaus and
Measured by every standard,
Mr. Pierce is the most consistent
little tax booster the state of Ore
gon ever had.
Mr. OllcotCs Record
He introduced a change in the
itate secretftry's report which has
saved the :tate many thousands
of dollars since 1912.
His renovation of the peniten
tiary savrid the state nearly half
million, dollars
He secured funds for a training
school building for the Boys' In
stitute without a single dollar or
additional taxes.
He is the originator of the Ore
gon Blue Sky Law, which saves
the Oregon people millions of
dollars annually.
He was responsible for the
stopping of junketing trips by
state officials at state expense.
He secured the passage of a
budget law, effecting large econ
omies in the state government
which could not otherwise be
The change In the State Ses
sions Law, recommended by him,
saves the state $10,000 a year.
He has been universally com
mended for the excellence of his
official appointments.
He has taken the first real con
structive step in the equalization
of the state tax situation by the
appointment of a committee of
experts to investigate and report
to the legislature the entire scope
of the tax problem irl this state,
thus assuring that any changes to
be made will be made along sane,
conservative and constructive
lines, which give far more prom
ise of securing results than dem
agogic bewailing and idle cam
paign promises such as are being
made by the non-partisan candi
date of the Democratic party,
especially in the light of his rec
ord as the champion tax producer
of the state of Oregon.

Entered as second class mail
matter September 2, 1914, at the
postoffice at Manpin, Oregon, un
der the Act of March 3, 1879.
At a recent meeting of representa
Ives of several non-sectarian and Pro
testant private Bchools held in Port
land, Joseph A. Hill, president of Hill
Military Academy, was elected ex
3cutive secretary of a permanent or
ganization formed on that occasion.
Mr. Hill, in addressing the delegates,
said: "Our private schools are en
dangered by the measure known as
the 'compulsory educational bill,'
which will come before the voters this
November. We have given our best
thought and effort and years of un
tiring devotion to the cause of educa
tion and now all our work would be
swept away In the flood that is direct
ed at the private schools.
"Oregon already has a compulsory
educational law. Why should this
new measure be necessary? Private
schools such as the Hill Military aca
demy and others on the list of those
to be affected use practically the same
books and courses of study as do pub
lio schools. But we have smaller
classes and can give more Individual
attention to the pupils. To do away
with our schools would be to Increase
the taxpayers' burdens materially for
:t would take millions of dollars to
build extra public schools, equip them
and provide them with teachers. In
iddltlon It would destroy the means of
living of hundreds of our teachers and
jmployes. We teach Americanism
most loyally and our patriotic exer
cises dally inspire our pupils with
irlde in their country and a respect
.'or authority."
Voters, Do You
That the so-called compulsory
education bill, on the November
ballot, would close every private
school of grammar grade in Ore
gon? That It wnuld deprive parents
of the right to send children to
any religious school or non-sec-'
tarlan school privately operated
In Oregon?
That It would confiscate mil
lions of dollars worth of prop
erty without cause, now devoted
to private school work?
That It would add more than
$1,000,000 annually in taxes to
the taxpayers by throwing sev
eral thousand pupils Into public
schools, for whom buildings
would be necessary?
That It violates the sacred
rights of parents to train their
children as they deem best, by
robbing them of their constitu
tional right to attend privately
operated schools where religious
thought Is featured or to a non
sectarian school, such as Hill
Military academy?
Education Bill Unnecessary.
The so ( ailed ronipulMiry education
bill It unnecessary, nrrordtng to many
Hided opinions, because On-con ul
ready has such a law. It Is working
well. Is fair all around why change
mmmmmmwf 1 mm' "M?
Why Stir Up Strife?
The socalled compulsory education
bill, on the November 1 ballot, hat
alrt.uly Ktirred up much religious
strife Why make It a law and con
tinue llils harmony destroying program
that can do to good?
Oregon will not disgrace her
self among her sister states of
j the nation. The trend is now
strongly against the so-called
educational bill. Men and wom
en are begining to understand it
and to what ends of suspicion
'and civil friction it would lead.
Except for a few, blinded by
zeal and others who remain mis
led by the arguments of propon
, ents, voters are turning against
(the measure. This anti senti
ment is due to grow greater with
each day between now and elec
tion, and the school bill will be
severely beaten November 7.

G. A. R. and Hill Military Academy Cadets Salute the Flag.
One of the features at Hill Military academy recently was a patriotic
ceremony in which the honored guests were prominent members of ' the
Grand Army of the Republic. The tiniest cadets and the elderly heroes of
the Civil war united in the service. These inspiring ceremonies are frequent
occurences at the academy in Portland. AmoDg the juniors were throe
little lads whose mother passed away a few months ago. The father who
lives in California could not leave his business to care for them and so
sent them to the Hill Military academy saying, "Keep them through the
grades and high school." The private schools of Oregon are carefully caring
for many orphans and half orphans who would be most directly injured
If the so-called compulsory educational measure should become a law. For
that reason many taxpayers are working to defeat that measure. In addi
tion if adopted the bill would cause a great increase in taxes as the private
school children, numbering nearly 8,000, would have to be cared for in public
Institutions and schools.
It is necessary to raise this
additional amount by special
levy for the following reasons:
