A recently Erat out the following piece of advice a Busine men should note the acceptance of a noun a truth on the part of an increasing number of employer namely that the consuming pow Etc Public depends on decent wave Levo Teady employment. Quot a Ini Stic Ami general wage Cut in All it Ald mean a i Tinct a Ltd it a Sale i i would n get be Low sight of by merchants in their pee Clit Reluct Anre to reduce while Bab on Here is probably interested in taking a Ding at the merchants whose interest Arn not a important to it it him a Tho a of the big in Ani Actu re is who loan the merchants Shelve with High need goods i main Point never Heie so Well Worth thinking about. Low want a am greater Thrift Are panaceas which hanker Chambers of Commerce and men of Sarge business n general Hob out a. Cure for tile nation ills. And few of them Cern to realize that the Pucce of their program would be its own destruction. I he individual Industry May lie Able to gain by arbitrarily forcing Down wage but All seller of gins would lose More than they could possibly Gam. Likewise the forcing Down of the prices of farm product by unnatural methods bring profit to Tho a dealing in farm commodities but it i Little Short of dish trim for Reefy Man and interest who look to the Farmer for i Market. Low wages Ami so called Thrift would work together to de Troy our by Ine -y.-tem. The Thrifty worker when his wage Are reduced must til further increase i Thrift by throwing off certain expenditure hitherto regarded As necessary in time we might reach a glorious Tate not Uthke that to be found in China a population of few or no want aside from a bowl of Nee once a play and a few Yards of cloth a year and by that time our great Industrial development would lie thoroughly on the crap Heap. Of employers Are. As or. Babson a beginning to recognize the a fact they Arentt making much no about it. All the organized Noie of the big Busine world i for Low wage Low farm Price and greater Thrift. A society of equals report of judge Mcgee pm operators have Boon untrue to their class. They have been inefficient. They have profiteers a and got caught it it therefore they an filing not Only the i plea ure of Tho great consuming Public but of erne member of the Busine Community. If Thi nature i the report of judge John f. My ice to Senate w Illiam m.

Hoo sincere i judge Mcgee in to condemnation of the a ii hone to methods will he really Eek a cure for them or i he condemning them at the moment because. A he a he fears a the growth of socialism. Cor n in in. Bol Levi a Ami the nonpartisan league who is the merchants Friend ? Many merchant in the past and there Are some at the present Tom who imagine Taal the nonpartisan league is their worst enemy. This erroneous idea was brought about in certain localities where the merchants them Civ turned the fire Hose on the Farmers or in some other manner treated them Writh such it Irv pet that the Farmer naturally retaliated by organizing mercantile diluent financed by themselves. Thi. However never a been in the past nor is it now. The objects sought to he accomplished by the no on parti an league. We now find however that the steel Trust gang who Are to control the pol by of the state for the next two you and who Many of the a same merchants supported so zealously Are advocating co operative ownership by the Farmer of retail agencies us a practical Inlet a of Unn Ceary expenses lome by the consumer. This therefore should convince the most sceptical that Tho a merchant who were fighting the league at the lat election of vigorously were like some of the North Dakota Hank is who in reality were working against their own interest.-, and that those whom they Opp de were. In reality their Friend. The Teel tru to gang care very Little for the Small merchant and the my Ner the Mal merchant discovers Thi tact and stands by the Farmer the latter it will be for All concerned.

Objection met a whether objection Doe not lie in the fad that the get. Away from their leading string and Tendon a rep Ting Ituen he. The Christmas season a a a a that we Are still at War with Germany he considered a a legally proved by the fact that two citizen of Illinois have recently been convicted under the espionage act. Which was strictly a War measure. The Ull edged violation of the act took plier on october to. 1920. It appears that a practically illiterate lithuanian proprietor of a mall ice Cream parlor was asked by e stranger to mail a package for them. The Man to whom the package was sent a unknown to him. As were the t men w to a ked the favor and the Content. Of the package. The Man to whom it was sent who is a Miner in Herrin. Ii denied any knowledge of the Content of the package or of the parties who ent it to him l Ite Federal District attorney however. Announced Olvat a giant conspiracy to overthrow the government anti flood the country with incendiary literature bail been uncovered and the court was persuaded to agree with him. The men who Dart the package of what turned out to Ive communistic literature might easily have been employee. Of attorney general Palmer but this would not have interfered with the a a legality of the proceed Rig. And the local District attorney has probably added considerably to his prestige As a Ilef Emler of America. In a Book culled a the marketing of farm products Quot of proves or Weld Hows Over and Over again How the Market monopolist Are philanthropists. Even to the extent of boding wheat for six months until the Public is really to con ume the Tail end of the crop for Only l l cents per by neb Thi figure for wheat i arrived at by a vicious error. Instead of following the wheat raised in hip through to tile Spring of 1920. He take the prices in the Spring of 1919 and compare. Them with the Price of the fall of 1919. Thu confusing two different crops. Wallace. Farmer on the Oiler hand which a kept accurate figure films that there a a spread of More than la cent tween tin fall and Spring during the 10-year period before the War. Hanker Johnson however would a amp to have used the lying figure a i he not been Carri i away by anti a a i Farmer prejudice. And the a a kept pre of the Northwest would not have quoted him As an authority if it were not blinded by Tho same fact. Every one of sense knows that with storage cot and interest on Money invested the middlemen handling wheat would have gone broke with a margin of Only 1.1 cent not to mention their handsome profits. The Independent the state in gun of the i. V a., has seen a great Light. It a discovered that the chief sufferer in the present warfare in North Dakota Are the mall Busine men and Bankers and newspaper men. That i a truth the courier new a often Jaunted out it has wondered Why the Small business men and hanker have not seen Tho facts. They Are imply pulling the Chestnut from the fire for big interests in the twin cities that have no regard whatever for what happens to any one in North Dakota whether Fanner or merchant. I he Independent of course thinks the Farmers should surrender in order that peace May return Ami mall merchants an i Bankers May again Prosper. But Farmers Are offering cruel wrong. It would in an economic crime for them to submit to the robbery of the twin cities gamblers and Bankers merely in order that North Dakota merchant an banker might have a Little More Pence of mind. The Way out is not for the Farmers to surrender their program but for the Small merchants and Bankers loyally to support that program Fargo \ courier new. To 1920 the platforms of both Obi parties this year were More reactionary than was that of Taft in 1912. Yet in that it meantime nothing had been Dune to curb the Power of monopoly and the War added vastly to the Power of concentrated wealth. The Liberal had to bit harder than Ever or surrender and it would appear that there were not enough of them to make a ceremony of surrender. They had dosed hop sum time Between 1912 urn 1920 and disappeared. One cause of their departure undoubtedly was the espionage Law and other special War measure. The weak kneed liberals an Liberal la Aper trembled before these More than did the radicals. They ran to cover on every important Issue and Wilson would have had no support Here tor his thac term if he had a Al a wanted to Force a fair peace settlement Onku rope. A air \ Ani hed liberals what a become of liberalism it used to Ive the Case that when a Man or party became known As reactionary or its hold on the people a gun. Now it a Ems that nothing which i not hidebound gets anywhere outside of the territory a a menace in by the league. In 1912 Taft won Only two stat.
