HAWLEY AND McLAIN
Congressman Hawley and Hugh
Motain have been having a short
round of newspaper controversy in
the Portland Journal.
a boost for Senator Chamberlain
bad made the statement that the
rivers and harbors bill as it passed
the House carried an appropriation
of $40,000 for Cooa Bay and that
Chamberlain bad it increased td
$50,000 in the senate. Hawley re
plies that be had an item of $50,000
in the bill ns it passed the House
“and was reported to the Senate
from the committee on commeroe
without any change in this item
McLain had also stated that the
bill for the closing of Mill slough
was put through by Chamberlain
without assistance from Hawley,
Hawley quotes the Congressional
Record to prove that he called up
the bill when it was finally passeo-
Now McLain comes back with the
statement that the figures “$40,000
aud $50,000” weie a misprint; that
he meant $50,000 anil $60,000. He
calls attention to a resolution intro
duced by Chamberlain raising the
amount from $50,000 to $60,000
showing that Hawley’s statement
was an evasion of the truth
Regarding Mill slough, McLain
shows that on account of Hawley's
absence the bill was introduced by
Lafferty, who was a member of the
committee to which it was referred
and who did what he could for it,
and that all that Hawley bad to do
with it was to call it from com
mittee by unanimous consent, when
it passed without opposition
Then McLain fires a parting shot
by bringing up the matter of Haw
ley’s holding tbe position of banker
in the W O W. at a salary of $1200
a year, and asking if he has followed
the example of Congressman With
erspoon of Mississippi, by turning
back into tbe treasury $20 55 a day
for every day he has beeu absent
from Washington when he was paid
for being there. Considering that
Hawley voted for tbe perpetuation
of the-mileage graft, wbicb is noth
ing less than stealing sanctioned by
custom alone, be is not likely to
answer this question.
is due the adoption of the "Oregon
System,” which is so heartily hated
|by the old political warboises and
so greatly admired by progressive
thinkers throughout the United
States He is greatly interested in
the passage of the $1500 tax exemp
tion measure and proportional rep
resentation, and he remarked to the
Herald man yesterday that, if the
choice were put up to him, he would
rather see those measures passed
than to be himself elected governor.
It is a sate bet that any man who
has been so heartily abused as has

Do those who advocate the

alcoholic liquors realize the
seriousness of the social and

be precipitated by such legis

fact that the heads of families

-Why Make Oregon the Goat?=r
Why Is OREGON Picked for Alleged
Nationwide Prohibition Fight?
Why Have Eastern Millionaires Brought THIS
Agitation to THIS Pacific Coast State ?
It is not generally known in Oregon that the proposed prohibition
amendment to the State Constitution :s an issue framed by men who
have no personal interest in this state.
W ho the real politicians are who comprise
this group o f men is kept a profound secret
from the people of Oregon. Their real
motive is likewise kept a secret. All that
is made public is that they are philanthro
pists, who are bent on saving humanity.
Millions have been raised to accomplish
this philanthropic w ork of saving a nation,
but who these millionaire philanthropists
are is not being told to the public.
W hy js it they have framed a law for the
Washington voters on our North for this
fall which provides that a h alf gallon o f
alcohol or a dozen bottles o f beer may be
bought every two weeks by an adult person?
'Phis would permit Washington to stay
drunk all the time. W hy do they claim
that that is temperance or prohibition?
Why do they not bring one ot these three
issues to all three Pacific Coast States?
The question naturally must arise, therefore, in
the minds of Oregon voters:
Since when have these kind of millions
worked for the uplift of real hum anity?
Having brought nearly every necessity of human life
in this nation under their monopolistic control, not
for the good of humanity, but for the satisfaction of
their own greed, why are they now so clamorous, so
noisy in their demands for nationwide prohibition?
Is it not the duty of every voter in Oregon first to
“ stop,” “ look ” and “ listen” for a moment and to ask
himself or herself:
W hy have these Eastern millionaire philanthro
pists so suddenly turned their s / hj ts? Why so
anxious for hum anity? Is there a “ dollar
reason” lurking behind the movement some
Why do they not come to Oregon with a uniform
issue? Why do they frame one issue for Washington
to catch votes in that state and an o'her issue in Ore
gon to catch votes here? Why do they not frame one
issue for all slates? Why do they not put into the
Oregon issue a provision against distribution and
giving away of liquor? Why do they only want the
manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages pro
hibited here in Oregon? Are they truly working for
prohibition or even true temperance, or is there a
ioker somewhere which they are asking the good
people of Oregon to swallow in the shape of a consti
tutional amendment? Why have they included the
words “ manufacture, sale, giving away and trans
portation from one point to another” In the Cali for
nia amendment now being agitated in that state? Is it
because they know in advance that they will lose that
t te hv at least 200,000 votes and are resorting to pol
i.i al trickery so common with millionaire phihm-
t.,o,o sfs in order that they may delude the people in
».her stages as to what they arc ” fighting for in Cal
Vhy do they not bring that same issue to Oregon?
Why are not all sister states made to confront the
same issue at the same tim e? Is it not a national or
ganization, with a national fund of millions, with a
national programme to do nationwide good to hu
manity? Or, are they really working for nationwide
temperance or prohibition, after all?
Or is there
something covered up by these nrf.lionaire Easterners?
Is it some new scheme to get the public to help them
to make some new kind of dollars?
Why has Oregon been selected as the focusing
point for this campa:gn of Eastern millionaires?
Why should it be the one state of all Pacific
Coast slates to have 5,000 men thrown out oi
employment, 1,500 to 2,000 more homes made
empty, 1,0 0 0 more stores made vacant, a $6,000,-
000 hop industry crippled,incomes reduced,real
ty values depressed, taxes made tremendously
higher and business unsettled when the very
millionaire philanthropists who have framed
the Oregon amendment have not proposed a
true temperance issue?
Many right minded men and women of Oregon, not
knowing all the foregoing facts and other facts to be
published In these columns from issue to issue, have
been swayed by the loftiest of motives in supporting
the issue brought to them by these Eastern millionaires.
They have been made lo feel that hey were enlisting
in a national fight for temperance and in too many
cas'*s have been blindly let! into the support of a cause
which will not only injure true temperance, but make
present admitted hard times in this stale twice and
three times as hard it ihe proposed statewide prohibi
tion amendment is adopted. Stagnation would have
been created, yet any husband, son, brother or father
would be able to transpor liquor into and through
the state and to give it array if the present splendid
home rule and local ottion laws arc replaced by a
state constitutional amendment and the control of the
liquor traffic is turned over to the slate police author
ities. Even then, would h u e temperance have been
secured at this fatal expense ot stagnation?
What are these Eastern millionaire philanthropists really trying to do? Are they
■ illy worrying about humanity and Oregon or is it some new scheme to control
omeihing to make som e new kind o f dollars that is worrying them?
