Charles Hall, of Mnrshfleld, 'rub
for many months said to bo consid
ering announcing lilniBclt as n enn-
dldsto tor tho republican nomination
for governor but made no detlnlto
statement ot his candidacy until n
few days ago, following his endorse'
nent In Portland by tho "federation
ot patriotic societies." Readers ot
tho Portland newspapers have seen
frequent montlon ot this organlza
tlon in connection with discussion ot
posslblo candidates for tho governor
ship and they observed that Mr
Hall's announcement camo closely af
ter his endorsement by the federa
tion. It seems to be a fair Inference
Jlhat Mr. Hall's decision was largely
influenced by tho federation action.
," Whether or not tho Inference Is cor
rect it is propor to make Inquiry as
to just what .Is this "Federation of
Patriotic Societies" that is taking so
prominent a place in tho political
discussion of tho day.
One may make inquiry but ho will
shortly find that that is about alt ho
can do. Ho gets nowhere so far as
definite Information Is concerned. A
correspondent asked the Oregonlan
what the federation was and got this
answer, t
"The Federation of Patriotic So
cieties Is an organization of' between
SO and GO delegates chosen .by cer
tain secret societies which are con
fined to Protestant membership. The
federation itself is in a sense secret.
In that the names of neither dele
gates nor participating bodies havo
so tar been disclosed to the public.
Knowledge ot identity in either case
is largely a matter of deduction, but,
generally speaking, the federation is
composed ot those bodies (with per
haps additions) which waged a suc
cessful campaign in the last school
-election in Portland."
A good many crimes ore com
mitted in the name of patriotism and
this seems to 'be one ot them. Pos
sibly the gentlemen of the federation
are worthy men with high aims, or
at any Tate, with aims they think
are high. They are going at it the
wrong way, however, to try to secure
their alms through a secret political
organization with religious and ra
cial limitations. There's nothing
American about any such procedure.
It is tho Know-Nothing business all
over again.
Until all the candidates are in the
field The Bulletin will make no se
lection of its favorite for the repub
lican nomination. It Charles Hall
secures the nomination, however, we
are against him unless he can prove
that he Is not allied with this bunch
of FOPS. I
In La Grande $3,000 is being I

In common with other newspnpors
ot tho state Tho Uullottn has ro
coivod from Uio managing commit
tee ot the 1925 exposition a request
"for n frank nnd unbiased expres
sion on tho best posslblo method ot
financing tho exposition." Further
on in ths letter tho request Is tor
an "opinion on what financial policy
would bo the most nccoptablo to the
peoplo of your community." Tho ro
quest assumes that an exposition of
somo kind will bo hold which scorns
to bo tho general Portland attitude.
Indeed, n friend has told us that
Portland will havo somo kind, ot
show evon though it is only a street
carnival. ,
Accopttng this assumption our
tlrst answer to tho request Is nega
tive Tlint is, wo bollevo that thoro
should bo no attompt to finance tho
affair by compulsion. In other
words thcro should bo f.o funds
raised by taxation. It taxation is not
used there remain only such volun
tary methods ns salo ot stock or
bonds or outright contribution.
Sinco The Bulletin makes no claim
of knowing it nil it has no Intention
of telling tho 1925 committee that
its opinion is that ot tho whola com
munlty, however, and it invites let
ters from Its readers gtvlng their
opinions on tho subject ot fair fi
nancing. In order that tho discus
sion may be all on tho samo basis
wo suggest that writers first Indi
cate their opinions on tho desirabil
ity of the fair and then stato tholr
bollors-es to now it suouia bo fi
nanced. Every letter must bear the
name ot the author but tho name
will bo withheld from publication It
desired. A summary ot tho answers
will bo sent to the fair committee
as answering in some degree tho
questions .asked.
Tho article 'appearing Monday
under the "1925'' head, which should
have, been credited to tho Portland
Spectator presents much tho samo
Idea as that expressed in this column
a few weeks ago when the announce
ment was first niado ot tho world
tour to bo mada by Julius Meier on
behalf ot the exposition. At that
tlm6 wo said, that Mr. Mclor was
making tho, trip, on his own respon
sibility and that it could not be nr
gned on his return that because ot
the invitations ho might have given
that the state was committed to hold
ing the fair.
The Spectator seems to think
otherwise so far as the possibility of
committing tho state Is concerned.
In effect It says that either "we"
must let these foreign governments
know that Meier has no authority
and that there may be no fair or wo
must provide the fair in order that
those who rely on his representa
tions may not suffer. The difficul
ty with this Is that thcro is no or
ganization to give this notice. Tho
Spectator's "we" means almost nny-

It seems to Tho Bulletin thnt this
sort ot argttmont proceeds moro
from a desire to llnd fault with tho
Oregon system or with tho legisla
ture than front n wish to consider
tho whole subjoct impartially and

Another wny of looking nt tho
matter Is that tho completion ot tho

at tho bond selling rnmpnlgu, will
bo a real community benefit. Klnco

depends on whothor tho expenditures
for which tho tuxes aro levied
should bo niado. To us, nt least,
it seems qulto clear that tho levies
voted by tho peoplo wcro jnstlllcd
and should bo continued. They have
provided, for tho most part, for
noeded Increases In salaries and fa
cilities In our educational institu
tions and for tho soldlor bonus
funds. Any one who wishes to pro
test agntnst any particular ono of
theso objects Is at do so
and It is also his duty to do so
rather than to argue in n vaguo and
general way against high taxes.
Wo aro not so suro but that for
tho legislature tho word should ho
blarao rather than 'responsibility uud
here Is our reason. The taxes which
tho peoplo voted made unnecessary

samo purposes which had formerly
been made. Instead of taking In
the slack so provided, however, tho
legislature found .other placos in
which to spend tho money and ntado
appropriations up to tho full amount
permitted under tho six per cent
limitation amendment. i.
Just how much now appropriation
was used in this way wo do not
know but wo recall thnt In Decem
ber, when tho effort was being made
to flnanco tho 19,25 fair. Secretary
ot State Kozcr suggested cutting off
and down existing appropriations to
tho total of about $2,000,000 nnd
taking that monoy. This never got
much beyond ?lho suggestion stagol

Tho Bulletin agrees heartily with
tho opinion ot tho Ku Kltix Klan
expressed by Its morning contempor
ary. This organization has no more
placo in tho nation than has tho fed
eration or patriotic societies In tho
stato. Both aro un-American but
of tho two tho K. K-. K. Is tho worso
becnuso it scoks to gain Its ends
through terrorism and by taking tho
lnw into Its own hands. Tho FOPS,
at least so far as is yet Indicated, is
not an organization of law broakers.
Its. activity Is apparently only In tho
political field.
When tho tlmo comos for this na
tion to he run by forco and secret
political organizations it had better
hang up tho "For Salo" sign aud go
out ot business.

Wo read In (ho headlines thnt tho

Ono reason why tho 1925 fair
business has novor progressed very
fast is because It was Malcrcd from

In an effort to convey to the mind of the public an idea of an un
usual picture's impressiveness, producers of photoplays often have re
sorted to a listing of statistics; a mention of the nioney spent on it, tho
gross weight of steel and stone used in structural work, the mileage of.
me mm exposeu, anu me iikc. ,
As well guage the greatness ofa master's painting by the number
of tubes of paint used, as to argue that' "The Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse" is the supreme picture play in the screen's history merely
because it required over a million to make, a year to photograph, and
six months to prepare for the camera.
And so, despite the interest of these ofT-thc-screen facts, we ask
you to forget them. Tho picture can achieve its aim only when you
respond in the measure intended to its drama; when you share tho joy
and the dejection of its people to the fullest; when you thrill as thoy
thrill to the big moments in life; when you, watching their images on
the silver screen, veritably live their experiences.
When you see this side of this master picture you will admit it is
in a class by itself.
