Farmer sense recognized Effort of farm bureaus in Many states to get Farmers to Pool their Wool and hold it constitutes a remarkable tribute to the Good of the league Farmer. Of the Northwest. Over five year ago the Farmers of North Dakota began their erasable for a letter system of marketing. Their program called for state owned Vaie houses unit cold storage plants in which to store Ach commodity y As Wool potatoes. Egg. Butter and meats and for a system of banking which would enable the Farmer. To get Loans on Ware nou a receipts from produce of stored advancing a similar plan to save themselves from the necessity of St Ling their wheat and other grains in the Early fall when the Market a Down. For advocating these development the Farmers of North Dakota at first and then the Farmers of 13 other state. And their leaders have been called All the vile names which evil tongues and Servile pens could of and now the farm Bureau presided Over by the it apartment of agriculture is making a feeble attempt to carry the very principle for which the a Farmer have been so foully abused. Stronger yet. The Federal Reserve Bank a evidently Macle Arr to Advance Money on Wool stored under the auspice of the county agents. We do not expect either the farm Bureau or the government of Washington to take any great stride toward giving the Farmer a fair Market for his produce. The Farmers safety lies Only in going ahead with his own program and in securing such political control that he can carry his program As it should be carried . But we wish to Point that the organized Farmer in this program Are doing nothing a t sanctioned at the pre ent time by the farm bureaus because of the desperate condition of the woe i Market. The term Bureau plan a jut As much an attack on so called Quot legitimate Busine Quot As the Farmers program a teen. It interferes with the efforts of the Woolen tru to a get the Farmer. Crop for Little or nothing. It puts the army of Wool buyers jobbers wholesaler and Speculator largely of by iness. It reduce the Field of profit making Enterprise for so called Busine a men in fact every fundamental objection Thot can by Raie i again to the league program can be again t this Effort of the farm Bureau. Thi. Effort of course i a Praise worthy one. The paint we to make i that it i a tribute to the Good of the xon parti an league Farmers. Public opinion our american government has been established on tile principle that majority opinion As expressed by votes should Nile. Probably we would have to search Long and diligently to find someone who does not accept this principle. Many who ale commonly accused of being against it Are really against an attempt to make it mean that Public or majority opinion is always right. The latter is quite a different matter and is. In fact a denial of Safe democratic government. Minority opinion i almost As Likely to be right As majority opinion. Hence our forefathers in framing the Constitution tried to guarantee that the minority opinion would always have a Chance to become the majority. They realized the importance of having Quot right Quot Rule the nation. Students of the scripture will recall Many occasions. Such As the time when the people sinned in the wilderness the time they first demanded a King to be in style the time of Ahab and Elijah and the time of Christ when majority opinion was so far from right. In fact right seemed to have a hard time throughout the whole period of acred history and its disregard frequently led to severe chastisement of the whole hebrew nation. In our time Public opinion was certainly most terribly wrong either in the Central Powers or among the Allied nations. The profiteering going on Here during the War Ami inc is most certainly wrong yet Public opinion on the whole Here still supports the Public men who make profiteering possible. Real opponents of the profiteers Are still denounced by the press As the worst of men and in Many parts of the country mob violence can be easily stirred up against them. Public opinion is most certainly not always right. It i the obvious duty of the citizen both before god and Man to attempt to keep it right for when it is not right one country is in great danger. Nation. No More than individuals succeed in doing wrong without retribution. What Safe democracy demands is that the minority who think they Are right should proceed to convince others by peaceful orderly Means. But it also demands of the majority that the minority who May be right be Given full Opportunity to proceed in their patriotic duty. Poor growing plants Broad stripes get that i distinct and people. I i a second accords them the place j of Quebec in the Dominion or of new York Wisconsin or California in the Union. Whichever Side you take consider the finn fein Flag. Have you seen it ? i it consists of three i Green White Orange please Green and Orange on the same Flag. Whoever designed that Symbol had courage vision Faith. When before in Lri a history have the Green Ami the Orange flown together even symbolically surely whatever else Ireland need whether Independence or Home Rule. Pacification or separa a lion it needs the Green and the Orange a on the same seeing which one May at least Hope that the age old difference Isnit irreconcilable. Camouflage associations supported by the steel Trust and other plundering organizations remind one of the Little boy who planted marbles in the Hope that they would grow. A. Review amid comment on various topics fighting like barbarians in one of i git at in Echo against King Philip of Mac e a who a planning to conquer Athen. Do then told the athenians that they Marie War like Barbar an in tend of like the trained Boxer. By this he meant that instead of hitting widely from toe place they were in they should hit rather so a. To do the enemy the not damage. A he Cern to us especially Good for the Effort of the american people against the profiteer we Art soaked for shoes and we make a great uproar about the a slue gouges sugar oars Ami we Vail about that. When we have gotten tired of til at yell and after the government has jailed two or three Little retailers we turn to Wool Ami Cotton cloth to Railroad fart.-, to Coal. Jut now the people of Minneapolis Are warring on rent profiteers As a whole the people of America have not looked for the Caun of profiteering anti made War on them. Until they do the a Are merely thru trig wildly like barbarian and the profiteer. Will continue to win. The one shining example of sensible fighting again to the profiteer i shown by the league Fanner and Airor of the Northwest. They have organized and Are fighting tire Power that makes profiteering , the Alliance Between special privilege Ami politician. They would replace this corrupt Rule with actual Rule of the people. By enforcing Law now on the Book which the politician refuse to enforce much of the pre ent Day profiteering could let a knocked . By pub a Ovner hip of marketing a Chine for the big farm produce and of utilities a Good Deal More could be eliminated. Bettor regulation of Busine would do away with still More. I be Workman on the other hand who merely agitate for More wage and let the profiteers handle the count or can never got anywhere. And the Farmer who confine his Effort to getting a Little More for i crop will likewise continue to get worse off. Both fight like barbarians instead of fighting with Good ene. T a Ole Hanson in Mcadoo class plutocracy a plumed Knight Ole Hanson lately mayor of Seattle who will charge a Windmill or a flock of Heep a. Valiantly a did Don Quixote Del Lobosco of ancient Fame has at lat told us Why he resigned As mayor just when he should have been basking in the sunlight of popularity among a grateful people saved from bolshevism. The great new. Came at tile trial of Onie Chicago people accused of being seditious where Ole appeared As the Star witness and expert on matters revolutionary. A Why did you resign a a aked the lawyer. A because of poverty neuritis and the a flute necessity of earning a living for my family a was the reply of the defender of civilization. The fir to and lat of the a motives it frill be noted Are exactly these Widen led workmen in tile shipyards and other Seattle industries to go on strike. Hanson was getting $7,500 a year a mayor of Seattle. Many people May think from this fact that he had a mighty poor excuse for his o n walkout but they hold remember that even a year of moving in a the Best society Quot places a family on a new scale of expenditure. Hence we see Why Han on joined Mcadoo in poverty and direct action. Ole now claim to earn $34,000 Gross a year of which 65 per cent is net by writing and lecturing and now we must add testifying on a americanism and Law and he stands firmly on the principles of honest living by Tail and weal and of Contentment seeking the meanest Man Tho a 14 clerk.-? of the War risk insurance Bureau who Are to be tried for alleged embezzlement of Over $100,000 from disabled soldiers Are going to be called a lot of hard names if found guilty. The Minneapolis Tribune thinks that if guilty a the superlative form of meanness a has i Een found while admitting that they would under such Cir cum Tances. Be pretty Low Down Bird we think that we could easily name a lot who Are worse than these. The action of Minnesota a senior senator in 1017 in refusing to pay our soldiers >�?T.0 a month because that would be an insult to their patriotism did not smell very Good to us. Then there were the men who put defective raincoats for the boy in France far worse to our mind than these 14 alleged Young thieves. Then there were the men responsible for a lot of our boy getting half enough to eat in France when court martial face the boy who kicked we would also put the judge who sentenced an 18-year-old girl to la years in Pri on for circulating leaflet urging our withdrawal from Rusia in a lower Eta s. Likewise the men who carry on a political Campaign with mob violence smell worse to us a believers in Democrat. And How a it Tho a congressmen who made no provision for reconstruction following the War and too with the plutocrats in their plans to use returned Soldier. To beat Down wage we Are Likely to hear much about the terrible 14 because at last the pre. Has found some allege evil do a ers who do not live on dividends. J. A Weatherly economic expert i of the department of Justice has Tate that approximately $9,600,-000.000 will be added to the nation s Cost of living for the year beginning with september. He Hasta his prediction on the understanding that the interstate Commerce commission will be forced to increase freight rates approximately two billion dollars. A two billion Dollar increase according to this expert a magnified about 4.8 times in the Cost of living. Why because the middleman who handles the products human beings buy will add his percentage of profit on attorney general Palmer appears Campaign fund collectors or for any up increase in freight rates to have turned Over his Campaign to similar political reason the reaction a Bat he will pay. Reduce the Cost of living to the War in Tell far East will be deplorable. He will pass on to the consumer department which now advertises it the British government shrewd in not Only the increased freight rate will sell surplus stocks of army meats diplomacy has been specially on the that is necessary for the railroads to at prices that will Knock the profi Alert to have sympathetic Amassa live but an additional amount of Teers off the Perch. It must be said Dors at peking and Tokio. Sir John profit which Weatherly says is 4.8 for the War department that it Man Jordan ambassador to China has time As much As the freight increase . A what other editors Are thinking about 11 i Timmy 1,11, ill ii Mai mkt i i a the Fanner labor coalition government of Ontario has just concluded its first legislative session which has established the precedent of having enacted More advanced social legislation than has Ever been considered within the past decade by previous administrations. When the Farmers and labovites undertook the legislative reins prediction were heard on All sides confidently limiting the newcomers tenure of office to a matter of a few months. It was said that the essentially divergent ideals of the Farmer and those of the labor men could not withstand the obstacles of the eight hour Day minimum wage and other questions which were an integral part of the Laberite platform. The answer Given by the coalition to it. Critics is that not Only has the cleavage failed to eventuate but the labor group with the sympathetic support of the Farmers has successfully sponsored tile enactment of labor legislation which even a year ago would have Ilieen considered highly Rodican a Christian science Monitor. Aged to keep mighty still about these surplus stocks during the nearly two j years since the armistice Ami win i High prices in meats were having their Palmiert Days. Of , it May have been Cabi net Courtesy Itiat kept Secretary silent 45 years in the diplomatic itself. Thus. The Consumers instead service entirely at far Eastern of paying two billion More for food posts. He Speaks chinese fluently. The organizer found him at the Hack of the barn nailing on some Loose boards. We Call it a Bam through Courtesy it was really a shed of second hand lumber and tin. He had to acres of land on an irrigation project a two room House with two scrubby Shade Trees in front five acres of Alfalfa and five acres of Sage Brush. When the organizer spoke about organizing to better his condition he swelled up with importance and replied. �?�1 maintain that conditions Are now and always have been Good for the american can you beat it?.�?yakima Valley Wash Farmer. He is probably the greatest living diplomatic authority on Oriental affairs. But British farsightedness is bet clothing Ami other necessities of life while looking up evidence of Gen that have to be transported by rail Era Prosperity at the depot this will pay nine Hundred million in week we fell on to an item that gives crease. Food for thought. In june last year of course middlemen always Fig the Railroad business Here wan in Baker from putting the army storks Ter by the recent be ure their profit on the Gross Cost of round numbers $24,000. This year i on the Market earlier. I hat would Lection of sir Charles Eliot to become doing business Ami consequently shows for the ame period about $42,-have been cutting in on or. Palmer. Ambassador at Tokio. Sir Charles when costs go up to them they go too. One extra Man is employed to game who was reducing the Cost of retire from the diplomatic service still higher to the consumer in order take care of the increase. Wonder if living by proclamation. It would t in 1904. He travelled in the Orient that the relative rate of profit to the this accounts in a degree for the fact have been ethical for Secretary Bak anti wrote a letters from a he far middlemen Ami merchants shall in that the Railroad Are using so much or to act then especially by methods so different and perhaps More practical and effective than those of the attorney general. But the War tie s apartment having waited what seems a Rea enable time. During which meat prices have declined of their own Accord now Breaks the news that it for a London newspaper. These letters which were later published. And became famous showed a sympathetic insight into the Japan Ese character. When the rumblings of the new democracy began to be heard in Japan great Britain recalled fir kept at the same ratio. Too. Is worrying Al the Cost of Charlo to his country. Service. A living Means to reduce it together tur Aliy a. A Diplomat and teacher with its surplus stocks. But that so he Way the War department always acts. Like lightning after thinking it Over a couple of years. The Fanner Sells the Packer a whole steer or hog but when the Packer tells us about his pre fits be puts it at so much a Pound. The milling Combine might beat the packers on this score by telling us the miserably Small profit made on a Grain of wheat. Or if big Biz was to get Down to the molecule business no amount of profit would appear unreasonable. The kept press can have this big publicity idea without credit to us. A press dispatch Ohio recently said Harding will declare bargaining and will strike Legi lation in and a sympathetic Friend of Japan ,.,t fir Charles Eliot is Destine to have enormous influence at Tokio during the momentous years now beginning. The american government can Well Marion afford to study British methods in senator this matter. There Are men in Amer there is no responsible government of China now in existence. The North is divided against the South and in the North itself there Are other divisions which threaten to pit. Civil War upon civil War. No state Man in China can see a Way of the republics financial Dipti Money that the government has to stake them to a Stern millions per month counting the Money in the head offices must be both an arduous and an expensive col Empire. Anti foreign feeling is again prevalent. In despair at the incompetence of their governing class the in Switzerland one big profiteer has been caught anyhow. He was Fine $2,600,000 on enormous profits made during the War on which he failed to declare in paying his taxes. Jules Bloch is his name. The Case has been peddle from that for collective Lea who can rank with Eliot in his oppose anti essential characteristic As enlightened i. Speech a and helpful Friend of the orientals. When approached by a reporter last Winter for an opinion on the Quot dreadful Quot work of the nonpartisan league in North Dakota Alex Mackenzie who had boo it toe Tate for 2 Yea replied probably of the penitence of old age a Well if they can do any worse than i did when i was running it they will have to go naturally an interview of this kind was not a fit to be Ptg the Republican nomination if the wretched system of using am for president which he is now pre Hassa worships to pay political debt paring.
