UES AN OPEN LETTER
TO THE PUBLIC
Tt has been brought to my attention that the Anti-Saloon League, fol
lowing the same tactics it has followed in every campaign heretofore, is
trying tu besmirch this organization and to carry on a vicious campaign of
untruths. No name seems to he. too good to be dragged into the mud by
them. I have rclial le information that a statement has been made to the
Anti-Saloon League and to the Committee of One Hundred by Mrs. Cora
C. Talbott, former secretary of the Taxpayers' and Wage-Earners- League,
that she war, brought into this work by me under the impression that it
was a Women's Suffrage movement, and her duties would be those of a
physician while I made speeches throughout the state. I also understand
that Mrs. Talbott makes the statement that funds have been collected with
out authority, and in some way the Brewers' Association has been collect
ing these funds. These two statements are absolutely untrue. The collec
tion of funds was authorized by me as president, and the secretary was
ordered to have a letter sent out in connection with this work. I under
stand that Mrs. Talbott, in this purported letter, in the hands of the Anti
Saloon League and the Committee of One Hundred, states that she ob
jected to the raising of funds under her signature as secretary. How did
the good lady think the work of this league was to be carried on? Why did
she think Mr. Eortzmeyer, cashier of the Scandinavian-American Bank, was
appointed treasurer of this league? Did she think we would ask the brew
ers to put up the money surreptitiously? If so, she reckoned without her
host. I have always fought in the open, and now, in my 80th year, and
probably in my last campaign, I do not intend to change the principles I
have always fought for, nor depart from my honesty of purpose in advo
cacy of equal rights for all the people by no means excluding women, for
whose interests I have spent my life to ohtain the ballot. My chief con
cern in their behalf has always been to secure for them their economic in
dependence, as married mothers within the home, which alone will enable
any woman to quit the business of marrying inebriates or raising drunkards.
The moneys collected are in the hands of Treasurer Rortzmeyer, and
all those who have donated have received a letter acknowledging receipt
there.-if. Any one so desiring may inquire from our treasurer as to whether
the money has been put in his hands, and I am quite sure he will advise
them of receipt of their donation. If there is any one who has paid their
money into this organization under misapprehension as donation for carry
ing on this work, this league will be only too glad to refund it.
It is indeed strange that Mrs. Talbott thought this was a Suffrage move
ment when she went to the Portland Hotel, engaged the dining-room for
our first luncheon for organization and arranged for the payment of this
luncheon, and went so far as to get speakers to express their views against
The real break between Mrs. Talbott and myself was caused when I
found out that she had gone to the Brewers' Association and told them she
could be of good service to them in connection with this league, and asked
and received a salary from the Brewers' Association on the ground that she
was putting in her time and needed the money. On the 26th of August a
meeting was held between Mrs. Talbott and myself for the purpose of get
ting matters straightened out before starting the general organization. At
this meeting a statement was signed by myself as president and .Mrs. Tal
bott as secretary that the two letters sent out by myself, as well as the let
ter sent out by the publicity department, were approved. This statement
ended with the sentence: "After discussing generally the affairs of the
league, the officers ratified all work that had been done up to date by the
publicity bureau and officers of the association."
I have lived in this state for 60 years, during all of which time I have
toiled and worked for the people of my state, and I am willing to leave it to
the public to decide as to whether I would lend myself in any way to any
. organization or any act that could be construed as anything but honorable.
Every one in this state knows Mrs. Duniway and her family. 1 whh further
to say that, if the occasion arises and I deem it necessary to go further into
this matter, 1 wiil le glad to publish some additional facts in theseTame
papers not necessary to publish now, and will meet the conditions as they
arise. If the Anti-Saloon League, by its paid foreign agitators or Commit
tee of One Hundred, think they can becloud this issue by trying to drag into
the mud my name or others, they are very much mistaken. I expect to
carry this work on to the conclusion of this campaign, and then allow the
people to judge as to whether wc will control our own affairs in the State
of Oregon or allow the paid agitators of the Last to show us what to do.
