The nonpartisan Teague by judiciously spreading knowledge concerning the activities of the special Ted interests thru the medium of a free pres Hopes and expect to be Able to educate the people until they w i a k to free themselves from the Bonds that have bean so tightly Woven about them. Fro Independent newspapers owned and controlled by Farmers workers and others not by the big inter it anti advertisers have been springing up at a rated rate thru out the Northwest. Thru these Publica to on Tho people Are being presented with facts that Are net Printe a in the a kept press a the politicians and others of their ilk have made it difficult for me of these newspapers to continue publication Ami thereby continue to Tell the people the truth concerning matters of momentous importance. But a majority of them continue to appear regularly Reg Nile of great difficulties that have to he surmounted. Even the most Radical opponents of the non parti an league would do Well to read the educational matter preen the i in newspapers and publications owned by the Farmer anti workers. It would give them a real insight into machinations perpetrated by big Busine-.-, relieving their eyes of the Blindfold that they May More clearly see the truth an Justice.

And then do something the thousands of workers who have a a cuts it there is silence Al. Been Laid off recently. I Hen we pass our plates of. My a work hard play this is a for let them Tell the Coal miners each of us is awful Busy a slogan particularly applicable at to work harder. The miners Are eating up that pumpkin pie. This time.

Work hard play it is a the Bankers however got Back at or. Williams and passed some solemn resolutions deploring any move that would a weaken the Peoples Faith Quot in the new York Hunters. Northwest conditions have forced the Farmers and labourers to get together for a common cause. It can Only be considered from one viewpoint it can Only be settled by political action. Centralised wealth sooner or later gets so top heavy that it brings about i it own downfall. No country can Long endure As a Money autocracy a especially is this True of a country whose people have had their Washington. Their Lincoln and their county Minn journal. A Farmer at Bock got returns last week for the Sale of beef steer and a fat cow. The two netted $40 on the Market in South St. Paul. Such incidents arouse every Farmer to the importance of United action to remedy such conditions but there Are a few still so deeply steeped in old party prejudices amt so dead to their own interests that Gabriel a trumpet would fail to awaken tues county Minn times. Good All around motto but never better than at this season. Trading in futures trading in futures according to its defenders is of great advantage in stabilizing the Market. The Grain Speculator by this View assume the risks of fluctuation and by careful study of the markets prevent Price from going As Low As they otherwise would at certain time or a High As they might at other times. We Are asked to believe that the speculators Are divided into two groups known As the a a bulls a Ami the when the a bulls Quot win the a a bears must lose am visa ver a. Grain speculators would have us believe. They further attempt to a educate Quot us to the belief that in either event producers Ami Consumers of Grain reap the advantage in a More stable Market. Sound Ren zoning on the part of any intelligent person will prove conclusively that this is merely a superficial excuse. Paper wheat which the speculators throw on the Market. Or take off the Market is Worth just As much for Market purposes a real wheat. Ina much As Many More time paper wheat is Ham lied on the Market a. Real wheat it ought not to be difficult to see that the once of the Grain is set not according to the Supply Ami demand for real the Ute but according to the amount it paper wheat. In some seasons the Minneapolis Market will Leal in too time As much wheat As there i actual we heat going thru. Rementa hug that the Market is a closed Market Ami that Speculator a Supply of paper wheat depends on finance it ought not to a difficult to realize that an interest Large capital can swing this Market with marked -ucce.-s. The Only doubtful Factor i the apply of capital Ami if the interest have this the matter i not a gambling proportion As so Many people a but a fixing Titan action. When there i a slight surplus of actual wheat the big internet which dominate the Grain Market make Thi a gee it surplus with paper wheat thus securing the actual wheat at much Pielow Market value. There can never be a shortage of wheat Uncle i the big Grain Intel it want to make one a a result in the Winter and Spring when Moat of the wheat has been bought from the Farmers the Speculator. Make a greater shortage by oiling Hort the consumer of wheat in Thea on pay far More than the fair Market Price. Speculate trading therefor in Tead of stabilizing the Market make a surplus More damaging than it would otherwise be to the producer Ami a Small shortage the cause of famine Price to the consumer. In fact the Only legitimate excuse the Grain speculators have Matte for future trading is the provision of hedging for actual buyer Ami Sellers of wheat. This enable the dealer in actual wheat to avoid losses from fluctuations. Naturally the speculators forget to Tell us that hedging could be provided for actual buyers Ami seller of wheat without the gambling in future Uch As we have today. To provide for hedging we would need to have Only twice a much Grain As is actually handled Gold on the Market whereas under future trailing As has been rated. The amount frequently run to too time As much there is no evading the fact that a change of marketing conditions is essential to the general welfare of producer Ami Eon Umer alike but As Long a the Market Gambler can pull the Wool Over the eyes of the people with their propaganda we will he under their domination i in nonpartisan league has mapped out a fair method to handle Thi situation and when the Farmers Ami labourers succeed in electing their own candidate to office then an Only then we will see a change for the letter that will be of Mutual Benefit to the entire populace of this and other states of the Northwest. The Minnesota University football team has made a miserable showing this season. The team has been beaten time am time again. The Independent Progre hives were beaten in the primary and Genera election in this state. The Minnesota football team Hopes to stage a comeback next season. There i no reason in the world Why the Independent progressive cannot stage a comeback a goo i Deal of urging Over a period of 20 years or More.

Them persistent advertising benefits the advertiser and the Public As Well the advantage of advertising lies in the ability of the advertiser to place his product before the people when they Are most Apt to want his merchandise. The advertising columns of the newspapers Are a certain Index of the successful business houses of a City or town. The Rule holds Good in every Metroplis in the civilized world. Printers Ink has made thousands of men Rich. The bold advertisers Are the successful business men. Those that launch out and scatter broadcast fact and figures keeping their business Ever before the people never relaxing never retreating but always pressing Forward pushing ahead never have to regret a lost opportunities or a what might have been a but unbounded Success is theirs to which the world pays homage.
