The federation is attempting to an Vav it a the question. A can the Farmers get anything of importance without putting their own men in Public of alive Bank or it must remain in the a a Tuv of the report tag of agitation. The federation has already run squarely into one of the great Dun Dee a Una an optimistic an of attempting to Ileal through increasing number of Plain people Mach a Poh time.

None the less it i interesting even to who believe this Way to follow Hie farm Bureau in the next few months. When la Lead a it get Lown to brass tack on the main problem they run squarely into the Stone Wall that Only the nonpartisan Hague program can break through. President Howard of the federation for instance Points in return for till unfilled uses to Aid the Farmers the federation endorsed the Esch Cummin rail null Bill and now advocate the reduction of the income surtax n Large income an the wiping out of the execs profit tax. The to in taxation to be made up by a number of direct Taxe on common fit a used by the common people. Esch Cummins act not Only made the sky the limit in rates hut it failed to provide for a fair valuation of the properties on which the returns Mut pay a 5y to to per cent rate. For years the total Market value of Railroad stocks anti Bond a. Been around ii billion dollars. Tie actual Money put into the roads by investors i liberally estimated at 12 billion dollars hut our interstate Commerce commission has allowed a paper valuation of about 26 billion dollars which includes Tho re fort. Over two fifths water the actual return on investment therefore Over two fifths water. The actual return on investment therefore under the guarantee will be not Les than n.4 or cent. Another Factor which our lawmakers overlooked perhaps because corporation blinders Are not an Aid to vision is the tracts of Public Domain granted to railroads till possess a Grout Ileal of this Ian i much of it containing valuable Oil minerals or timelier. Arni this property hoes not seem to have figured in the calculation at All except possibly As a Means of Welling the capitalization on which the Public Mut pay a Ltd per cent return through freight and passenger rates. The Railroad because the Esch Cummins Railroad out in a recent interview that one of. Act docs not provide for making up the great step toward Alvine the the deficits of the 9 per cent guar ism to Sullivan is a Hope marketing problem would be to pro i Antee out of the Federal Treasury a Ville jumping at fraud one of the Campaign tricks of the politicians in Minnesota was to give wide circulation to a fraudulent Poler advertising a Farmer candidate. In it we find the words a american gradual marketing of the big Good Many politicians Ami near poll m bib Ltd in y a taken elaborate precautions to prevent Tran be of wealth by Force we com somehow to think that Transfer by fraud is far less objectionable. Many form of fraud Art not punishable at All. A striking ill Tratman of How we distinguish Between Force and fraud a method of getting Money has come to our attention but recently. A Young botnet College student in whom Goon. Had not reached Normal development lost considerable Money in a Hock i land gambling House. The gambling House of rooms was contrary to Law. In addition it developed the gambling wit not on til Square. Made do rate by his loth tud of went to the proprietor of the crooked nth a anti recovered his Money at the Point of u gun.

I Lien came the Hess hand of the Law. The Young Man was sentenced to a to years in Joliet Penitentiary la game ing he a proprietor got nothing but the Protection of the Law which a considerable More than he deserved and went cot free he got Protection from society who Law he violated to secure the Voung Man Money. Witten web com More civilised we will realize that Tran Fer property by Frau is in objectionable than Tran Fer by Force Only in that it i less Likely to produce mood lied there i no More reason for allowing one to Rob another because he a knows More or has the Prott action of crooked pm Liticia than for allowing one to Rob because he is stronger or has stronger weapons.

Now the question arises where Are the Ware Hou coming from Ticiano Are denouncing the statement that there is a i per cent guarantee As being Mere Radical propaganda.

They Are the work of a crude undercover artist for big busmes.-. The tinn Apolis journal was among those who picked up this Crook product for political purposes. From the comment of the american newspapers on the pro pet of reopening Trail with Russia it would appear that America is Likely to a dragged into the arrangement by her pocketbook rather than by natural inclination. England has taken the step of renewing Trade relation and making investments in Russia. This reduce. The que Tion from the american business Point of View to one of doing As England has done or letting eng Lish business have the bulk of the possible Trade with Russia England likewise has probably acted As she has from practical compulsion rather than any Friendly filing which her business men or statesmen May have toward the russian government. Her colonial possessions in India Persia and the near East Are seriously threatened by the Success which the russian agents have had in lining up Tho dissatisfied Peoples with the soviet government. Some military men have declared that there is no reason Why Russia and her turkish allies could no take it Ona Pantinople in the near future if they wore to make an Effort to do so. I ii greek election was another loss to English strength in the near eat. Hence the Only practical thing loft for Tho English government unless it wishes to conduct a major War is to attempt to or made Tho soviet government to quiet Down and leave Tho East alone. Tho effective Means of persuasion is the renewal of Trade relations.
