Peterson daily news political writer nonpartisan and labor political leagues expect to file their ticket this week with candidates for governor and other state offices. Committees from both organizations visited or. Henrik in the Wake of the news another world War is close to us. A stronger Caiu a for a general conflagration of nations exists today than existed in 1914. Two principles ure Shipstead. Abroad in the european world which Benwood last week to learn whether apparently can not exist Side by Side. He will Tun again for governor. They the one being the old established also intend to see c. M. King Deer River to find out whether he will withdraw in order that or. Shipstead May be substituted on the Farmer labor ticket. Or. Shipstead was Defeated at the primary election last month for the economic order in Europe the other being the different order established in Russia. The incompatibility of these two principles was so Clear to the Allied statesmen that they and we began a War on Russia while we were in the midst of the War with Republican nomination for governor the Central Powers and this War has of or. King refuses to withdraw kept up Eer since. The russians on the plan is to file a non Par Isan la the other hand equally aware it league and publications to continue Battle for soldiers Jackson county Case to go to supreme court District judge Dean criticizes attorney but not facts in Case e fill,mi.,mmm.,,.,-. In bad taste or worse my Mem mall i in my Mem Mem i lit i i Minneita Leader Lester p. Barlow acting National chairman of the world War Veteran it has resigned. His resignation is the result of dissatisfaction with his work and policies by the divisional execu-1 five committee of the veterans. Barlow has recently been attacking the nonpartisan league by speeches and otherwise in which he made bitter personal charges against president Townley of the league and the league Headquarters at Minneapolis and was in this Way dragging the veterans into the political fight on the Farmer labor forces. Minneapolis denying the motion of attorneys of president a. C. Townley of the nonpartisan league and Joseph Gilbert formerly its organization manager for a new trial judge e. C. Dean of Jackson county did not take up the Points raised by the league attorneys. In thus passing on his own record judge Dean declares that the Case was conducted properly and endeavours to explain away what the league attorneys regard As errors by accusing the attorneys of insolence and practical contempt of court. He admits however that there is nothing in the records to Back up his a a it in a a it a a a ii him Iii hum i a Minnesota Leader editorial James Man. Han attorney for or. Kvale who was deprived of the Republican nomination for Congress in the seventh District by judge Johnson. Says it was Quot bad taste for a judge who had participated in the same Campaign with Kvale and volstead to preside it the trial. This is certainty putting in Midi. Perhaps As an attorney in the Case this is As fur As or. Monahan ought to go. But in our opinion it was something More than Quot bad taste. Call it what you will the facts Are that judge Johnson was not Only himself a candidate for office Defeated by a leaguer in the same Campaign but two years ago he presided at a i trial against a leaguer for disloyalty at Heil Wing in which Case the supt no Couit found tile league Man had been Mistriel on account of wrong rulings of judge Johnson. That judge Johnson was appointed to try the Kvale Case by governor i Burnquist for reasons that were probably efficient to Bur quiet Quot Hohr. Been a bitter Pei ecu tor of the league. I hat judge Johnson is not responsible to the voters of the seventh District whose verdict at the polls he so lightly tosses aside but was brought in from an outside District apparently so he could decide against the league if need be without risking his political future. I Hose Are the facts. It looks to us that a bad Tate is rather a weak phrase to describe we hat happened. Judge Johnson realizes the storm of criticism and indignation Thi scrapping of the verdict of the people will raise so he says in his opinion that the fact that Kettle was a leaguer had no effect on his judgment. I Kalilu in Advance will not save him. A Man Defeated by a leaguer As John Banner crops seem Outlook in Northwest Farmers preparing to Cut wheat statistics Are quoted in bulletin son was. Appointed by the head and front of the league haters of the state governor Burnquist a Man whose unfair rulings in the trial of a leaguer Bor ticket independently. Probably Only candidates for governor attorney general and one or two other offices will run on such a ticket. T. V. Sullivan St. Paul Defeated for the Republican nomination for attorney general has announced he will run for this office again either As an Independent or on the Farmer labor ticket. Fight for legislator in addition to the state ticket the nonpartisan and Lubor forces Are to line up for legislative fights in nearly every District Ami take part in congressional contests. In the 1st District Julius j. Reiter Farmer labor candidate has been endorsed for congressman against Cong. Sydney Anderson Republican. H. A. Fuller Mankato nonpartisan was Defeated at the primary for the Republican nomination for congressman by judge Frank Clogue Redwood Falls. Or. Fuller May run As an Independent. Cong. C. R. Davis St. Peter Republican is said to be the Choice of most leagues in the 3rd District. Leaguer two years ago caused him to get a new trial from the supreme court a dissatisfaction among the veterans by an Appeal from judge Deans Deci 111 to Tiu nutters Quot Hose ballots he carts in also there has been considerable assertions on this Point. Seems that these principle could Reahn of Barlow. Attempting to have Quot Ion is being taken by the league to is in our opinion completely i he financial Outlook for the Northwest is excellent. This is the general trend of the monthly report of the 9th District Federal Reserve Bank Minneapolis malt in Public today. I he report states that Banner crops Are Leady for harvesting the freight car it ution is Clearing Range conditions Are better than for Many year a Normal Coal Supply is on the Way and prices of important commodities Are on the decline.

They Are close to the capital of Poland and Are in a position to dictate terms of peace to that nation. They Are striking England and France in their weakest spot namely through Turkey Persia Arni India. At the same time Large groups of working people anti pc unt Farmers in every european country have come to think that a change in the social order would improve their lot in life. Whether they continue War or make peace the beneficiaries of the present social order in Europe Are thus equally in danger. They Are in such desperate Straits in fact to protect themselves that at any moment we should not be stir the veterans amalgamate with n the supreme court of the Tate. Third party movement or promote As the charge against the in organization the forming of a think party. The Veteran convention endorsed the principle of a third party but those who voted for the Resolution league leaders was brought under a state Law and a alleged that the defendant had encourage disloyalty in Jackson county during the War. Local county authorities brought the in Man the wasteland utterly a Squali i ibo to hear a Case of this kind and his Offin a is something More than Vul it Lamake have Loen widely circus bad lated.
