Single copy 5 cent visit the Freeborn county fair August 31, september 3 roads to shape future policy in coming year railway managers on trial says president of Baltimore and Ohio no n. Tax Levy for 1921 is tax commissioners plan Washington another Daniel has come to adjustment to Tell railway j managers that they Are on trial and that upon the Wisdom and Intel j Genet manifested by them during the next year will depend the future statue of transportation whether it shall continue Lin tier private control or to be taken Over by the government and maintained for the people. Daniel Willard president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is a typical Railroad executive but he possesses a vision that is lacking m some of his colleagues. The plainly can read the signs of the times. Re knows that the Public will not alway quiescent by accept the condition that have been established by a complaisant Congress controlled by Large business interests. There will lie a Sharp reaction against the misappropriation of Public funds to pay private dividends Ami to liquidate the Aims of private management. Already i it is in evidence. There i widespread disapproval of a Businesslike methods of railway manage s. Resulting in an almost Complete prostration of Industry and Commerce and the recent rate increase is certain to increase the disaffection that everywhere prevails. Or. Willard says that the Public is dubious of Railroad securities but he is hopeful that the future will materially soften this attitude of hostility and bring to the treasuries of the railroads the new funds that must be secured if the railroads Are to be operated efficiently of the railway managers do not see and meet their responsibility then private ownership is doomed Ami the logical next step is government ownership of railroads. What or. Willard does not see clearly is that with rates already so High that the carriers will soon be operating on a basis of diminishing returns re Hulting from curtailment of the addition of interest and amoi1wut on Quot barges will increase instead Remote Railroad troubles. That divided and interest May be paid on outstand Railroad securities the interstate Commerce commission has recently imposed upon the Public a new direct tax of More than a billion Ami a half of dollars. When this increase tuns the Gamut of multiplying increases that must be borne by commodities it will aggregate a tax of More than $50 per year for every Man woman and child in the country or approximately $3ou per year for the average american family. The railroads Are offering their securities at High interest rates increasing operating charges Ami it will be but a Short time until the executives Are again Back in Washington asking and doubtless receiving additional increases of traffic rates Industry la prostrate by what feat of legerdemain do the railroads expect to relieve the nation a Industry from the blight of inadequate transportation with Vernier coming apace and Coal bins empty with manufacturing plants closing because they cannot secure raw materials or the transport of finished commodities with last year s crop still in warehouses and this years crops still in the Fields with stagnation and paralysis everywhere what Are the railway executives doing to redeem a very serious situation the claim is made that transportation has failed because the carriers cannot secure cars and motive Power from their insufficient revenues. That was the basis of the demand for the recent freight increase. Cars cannot rebuilt in a Day or a week and if the Railroad managers had an unlimited Reserve they could not possibly add to their equipment in time to Avert disaster. Hundreds of thousands of workers Are Idle while the entire world is clamouring for the necessities of life. With under production everywhere factories cannot produce because they Lack transportation. The situation has become progressively worse notwithstanding the government has been struggling energetically for several months to Oring order out of the chaos that followed immediately upon the return of the roads to private control. There Are sufficient cars and motive Power to transport 1ne nations output if they were intelligently used. Continued on Page eight Bismarck a total tax Levy of seven tenths of one Mill will be fixed for this year 1920, if the recommendations of Tux commissioner George e. Wallace Are carried out he told a meeting of county auditors county commis loners and local tax officials before the Tate Board of equalization Here today. This Levy will be exclusive of the soldiers Bonus fund. Commissioner Wallace also told the gathering that he has u plan which if adopted and put into Law by the next legislature will entirely eliminate a state Levy for 1921. He said his plan was to raise the necessary state Revenue through the income tax thus putting the Burden on those whose income exceeds their exposes. On this matter commission r Wallace said in part a the slate Levy for 1920 will be fixed at seven tenths of one Mill exclusive of soldiers Bat tue fund if the stale Board of equalization follows my recommendation. In 1918 the state Levy was four Mills. This was the Levy for a series of prior years. In 1919 the state Levy exclusive of soldiers fund was 1.91 Mills. In 1920 i Wei recommend .7 Mill exclusive of soldiers fund and if the legislature will adopt a plan i now have worked out the 1921 Levy will be reduced to Zero exclusive of a tidier fund. That certainly will be something new in this part of the nation and will attract attention our Way from All Over the United states. My plan to raise the additional Revenue is to Amend the income tax Law so that it will produce More Revenue and take the Burden of state government entirely off of land and other taxable properly. Quot this will then give us an elastic base tor taxation. Ender such a plan Only those who have an income above expenditures and exemptions will be called upon to contribute toward the expenses of state government this is As it should be but is possible Only by affirmative favourable action by the a open shop is employers aim to defeat labor Bank of North Dakota turns $100,000 into state coffers Bismarck the Industrial commission has transferred $100,000 out of the earnings of the Bank of North Dakota to the state treasurer to be used to take care of the interest on the $2,600,000 of Bank Bonds that will become due on january i 1921, and july i 1921. These Bonds Are drawing interest at the rate of 5 per cent per annul $50,000 becoming due on each of the above dates. I he Industrial commission has mailed notices of its action to the state boart of equalisation in order that this body May eliminate this item from the coming tax Levy. This action of the Industrial commission shows that the Bank of North i Dakota has been self sustaining from the Start.

The open shop fight is More than an economic struggle. It is both Seoul and political it is at heart a struggle for human Liberty. The Chambers of Commerce seek to withhold from men tax right to organize and bargain collectively to take from them their Only effective protest against insupportable economic injustice. Disguise it As they will they cannot persuade any considerable number of intelligent citizens to accept any other interrelation of this nation wide movement. Recognition of general Wrangel a 1,1 Vaniza Jone. Constituting the de Facto government of South Russia by France mud have surprised even the general himself. He is a left Over from the evaporation of the done Kine expedition and has i toes stuck in the mud of the crimean Peninsula two weeks ago England appeared willing to guarantee his surrender As a part of general peace terms a Point which How How Little Chance this refugee has of being of use to the allies. The recognition brings into bold Relief the break Between England Republican arc calling member of their state Central committee to a St. Haul from every congressional District for the purpose of a conference with c. It. Adams chairman of the state Central committee. At these gatherings reports Are made of conditions in the differ it District and Steps Are taken to work out a card Index system showing the affiliation of every voter. From this it is hoped methods can be figured out regarding the kind of pressure needed to Wing Tho a into line who have shown a disposition to break France on Continental policy. Franc a always been the big Continental influence along with Germany and England a followed her until recently when Lloyd George undertook peace negotiation with the russians the act is probably a warning that France will not give up her claim to be first a in the continent. Some observer think that the United Staten is Back of France in the mutter. While this pressure has beet brought on England to join in a get away from the ranks of the old Tini ers. Hile thin process is going on in a secret fashion the candidates will take Hie stump in about a month and tart their talk about bolshevism and socialism. Democratic leaders also Are having conferences Ami discussions but they have adopted a different Mode of campaigning from the republicans. Instead of laying and ills to an overhanging wave of bolshevism the Many hogs Are being rained in All actions. It is interesting to compare the farms of North Dakota with those of Freeborn und adjoining counties in Minnesota. In this state the Farmers have been trying to raise bumper wheat flax and Rye crop while in Freeborn county the tillers of the soil pay less attention to raising Grain and atle to the Dairying game. Farmers of this state Are realizing that it is Imposable to Grain alone and make a living especially when the gamblers in the larger cities dictate the Price they will pay for the Farmers product. A a result it is self evident that m a few More years Farmers of this Tate will lie following the plan of those in Freeborn and adjoining counties and place Stock on their farms that will bring them at least a Little return every year for their labors.
