p. veil m the ei.!M,iial am 01 oni ovn emuiii it i,ieu an
important pari, darkening what otherwise would have
been a glorious bi-torv of tliO.e men and women who
i (raved the terrors of the new world wilderness that they
might be permitted 'to Worship Pod according to the dic
tates of their own conscience. That was a right they held
as dear as life itself and yet how strange that they were
not broad enough to grant the same rig-ht to others. In
i heir efforts to make all men think alike they blackened
many pages of American history. It is not pleasant to
read of how those who differed from them were thrown
into jail or driven out into the wilderness in winter there
i ) face wild beasts and savages because their conception
of how best to follow the teachings of the Prince of Peace
did not exactly agree w .it h the beliefs of those in authority
in the colony; of the cropping of ears, the boring of
tongues, (lie hanging and the burning at the stake of those
condemned as witches or heretics.
Mitt it should not be forgotten that even in the early col
onial days in America they wore not all fanatics they did
not all follow the example of the early Massachusetts Pur
itans. Rhode Island, the colony of refugees, and Mary
land, founded by Pord Maltimore as a refuge for perse
cuted people regardless of religious belief, Protestant and
Catholic alike, were the exceptions. They set the example
of religious toleration as did also the Quakers and other
later colonies. Toleration finally became the rule in Amer
i a. It has been proved and tried and found safe and
sound as a foundation upon which to build a Republic.
Mut history repeats itself. That same old spirit of intol
erance is again .abroad in the land bringing with it a fac
tion which arrogates to itself not only the right to regulate
the education of their own children but those of yours and
mine as well, and they have embodied their ideas this time
in the sc called Compulsory School bill.
Jesus of Nazareth is acknowledged by the Christian
world as the greatest of all law-givers. Pet us apply one
of his precepts to the present problem and see if this cry
ol "Americanism," being so loudly proclaimed by the pro
ponents ol this measure, rings IntV. Is il not a reversal
ol the Ciohlen Rule, "l)o unto others as you would have
liiem do unto you," for one man to say to another, voti
musl educate your child as I say, not as vou w.isli.
Kven the title of (Ins measure is misleading since we
already hae a compulsory school law that was declared
by I I'. Cl.ixloii, I . S. Commissioner of Kducaliou a few
ears ago, to he the best law of its kind in the United
The intent of the measure is to put over on the people
ol Oregon a law that will prevent you or me sending our
ciiiuircn id any school where religious instruction is given
to take away I nun the parent the control of his chih
'ducation and give it lo the state.

"Eod ijivc us men; a time like this demands
y.tron minds, jroat hearts, true faith and ready hands;
Men whom the love of office cannot kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
.Men who love honor; men who will not lie;
"Men w ho can stand before a demagogue
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking.
Tall men, sun crowned, who live above the foy;
In public duty and in private thinking;
i or while the rabble Willi their thumb-worn creeds
Their lar.ue professions and their little deeds,
Mingle in selfish strife, lo! freedom weeps,
' roii;;' rules the land and waiting justice sleeps."
