These moves and the possibility thai Italy May discard the political Mon Archy hate frightened american Bonk Era holding blocks of italian Bonds they have appealed to the state department to Stop teds italian revolution. The department has Given in answer us yet. A a Colby censors press Secretary Colby or course is very sympathetic with these Amer teat Bankers in their anxiety. He is the prise Radical hater in official washing ton. Hts daily sneers at Radical work Long class movements Here and abroad in his confidential talks with newspaper correspondent Are the subject of frequent Adverse comment in the City put Colby has the advice of the Cornu Lur service that Italy is quite Able to judge her own conditions and that la he tries any rough coercion the ital tans May deride to upset their govern mint right off. However if he can not impress his anti democratic program on the ital tan nation Colby can at least empty suppression in his own office. He has this week joined the Palmer Burle son class by excluding from his confidential press talks the correspondents of the Federated press a cooperative news gathering organisation supported by Farmer and labor papers through out the country. His pretext was the complaints made by these men to him verbally and in writing against his propaganda cloaked always in Irr Spon style secrecy against working class interests in general. The incident of Colby a attempt to muzzle the press has been widely commented on is the Eastern press and such conservative democratic organs As the Hall Tore Sun have Given him a lambasting Are third and fifth in imports. Nonpartisan ism everywhere a several weeks ago we asked the Northern display company for Bill i Board space any time before the deejays labor Organ of the plumb plan tin.

The nonpartisan political policy a imagine therefore our burp it of organized labor and the Farmers has Tovar. K when we viewed thousand lifted Many of the old Fossil reaction f billboards displaying pictures of j Aries from their mud Sills in a Way to make them stand up and think the a Farmers and labor Are supporting Only Date Many Wise words have been written about the difference Between a twiddle deep and a twiddle Dum a but nothing that can compare with the Northern display company a it Quot it a a a a a a Job a a h at of the billboard la a r a ular a it we re a can,.,late for governor of the great state of Minnesota. Reporting his speech at thief River Falls the other Day one of the leading Preus dailies in i twin cities quote Jake As urging a co operation a As a bitter cure for the ills of the Farmer than a state so Well take the word of the Pioneer thut Preus talk was correctly quoted and examine the position he takes. We do this because so Many people including a few timid local i using the non Lotical advert ing would la Yea r. By inc if the league was the a Lection. Having studied socialism or feels qualified to talk a ii the subject even though he the Little business Man was gradually eliminated. The local hauling Preus club should look carefully into the Industrial autocracy. They say so in letters referred to. Three new developments the Public is informed that there have been three important develop ments since the commission mad the steel report pre ident Wilson a referred the report to Secretary of labor Wilson who has taken up the matter with the commission the american federation of la in it or has announced that it will make a not achievements of the get societies be it love to organize the steel Industry.

Gary rushed away to Europe to escape the protest that followed its publication and the Iron age alone remains to speak for the autocrat and the Industry he dominate. To not a scr charge the Iron age does not attempt to answer the charges of the inter Church Survey but it Doe Heck to discontinued in Page eight league in an editorial on senator Myers Bolt a senator Myers is Only carrying out the methods he has Pur sued in the National legislative body lieutenant governor and Thomas v. Always against the people and in a Sullivan for attorney general says Vor of the corporation interests. No foe statement a but were told that doubt the purged democratic party in to v �?z.iu.,n display boards were All advertising and Nen actually believe that parti an league stands for socialism not i that they would Ltd e t our i a it operative lumber Yard Coal Yard hard Wain stove or garage of the Farmers and stockholders loyally followed the advice of Jake Preus ninety per cont of the local business would go to the e co operative stores and the merchants who have Money invested locally would be left to hold the bag a empty. Cooperation is going to come. We Ca Rry Herald praises Farmers senator Myers has bolted the democratic party in Montana because the nonpartisan Farmers and organized labor in that state have won the primary fight against the Anaconda Copper company ticket. His denunciation of the democratic party in Montana a a i. W. W. And bolshevism Quot has been rejected in Toto by the Washington Herald Organ of Julius Harries and Herbert Hoover on the ground that the Farmer labor movement is absolutely Law abiding open. Parliamentary and american in its methods. This statement in the editorial columns of the Herald which has on former occasions taken Issue with the nonpartisan Farmers movement is a Good Omen of the new understanding which the fast is getting with regard to the activities of the Farmers und organized labor in the Northwest. The intolerant attitude of Myers toward the Farmers of Montana gives away the secret of the general apathy in connection with the democratic National Campaign it is not or Coz that is an Issue in this Campaign it is the influences responsible for his nomination. Myers personifies those influences. There was a time and not Many months ago when Myers was brutally a a regular a in his party allegiance. He took the position that he would be willing to confirm the appointment a of even a horse thief so Long As he was backed by the at that moment he Felt sure that the Anaconda would own the party in Montana for years to come. Now that the people have driven the Anaconda gang out of the Temple of democracy he has no More interest in the party Label. Hence he is advocating the election of a Republican ticket which carries the corporation Brand. Myers attitude teaches once again the old lesson that there is no such thing As political partisanship in big business. Tee american shipping. A statement from the shipping Hoard shows that of our entire foreign Commerce during the first sit months of 1920, which amounted to about 37,400,-ooo cargo tons Over 28 per cent was carried by shipping Board vessels. Of our foreign Commerce carried in american vessels the boards Fleet handled 85 per cent. Export were forwarded from 44 american ports Aud imports were received at is Porta. Borne 1,700.000 cargo Tonz of crude Petroleum made up 24 per cent of the imports in the past fiscal year Twenty six ports handled Over 97 per cent of the tonnage moved. Taking into account both Export and import tonnage they were in order new York Baltimore Philadelphia new Orleans Norfolk san Francisco Newport news Savannah Seattle Boston Galveston port Arthur Mobile Charleston Portland ore., Jacksonville Portland me., Perth ambry Wilmington n.

A Bill is ready to be shoved through forbidding them to he affiliated with the american federation of labor a delegation representing the Post office workers interviewed senator Harding the other Day told him where they stood reminded him of the oppressions they had suffered from Burleson and asked him whether he would pledge them a Quot prompt and effective enforcement of his platform pledge to give Industrial tribunals to All workers in Public service. Harding first remarked cheerfully that a this will be line Campaign and then told the postal workers that he would answer them it is still a a a the stockyards merger As might have been expected when attorney general Palmer made his Compromise agreement with the big five meat packers Aud thereby avoided indicting the under the criminal statute for conspiracy in violation of the Sherman anti Trust Law the packers Are in no hurry to carry out their part of the bargain.

Weeks and months will be consumed in framing up another fraud on the Public As to the ownership of the stockyards. Then senator Jim Watson will be in High favor at the White House and he will arrange a new scheme of settlement which will ignore any protest which the Federal Trade commission May offer. Watson is the packers errand boy in the Senate. And that is the conduct of re Pon i ability of political parties a Loti i Hoover. A the democratic party has failed in its responsibilities. The Republican party a made definite promises to the country if it be placed in the gov private owners and operated by people through the government.

The old guard realizes that it is not being elected the voters Are merely kicking out the democrats. No other Issue is being considered when the new Congress meets Borah and Johnson and lot Follette will be to a Fine position to Lead a Senate revolt that will make Harding drop the whole Versailles mess and Call for a new conference to revise the treaty. Elements pleased at this turn of events include the Irish italians czechs chinese egyptians koreans. Hindus and the labor movements of All countries around the Earth. They want a new conference on the settlement of the terms of peace among the nations. Armline the present administration a made a failure by All the tests that we can apply. No Man would be half so narrow As to condemn the of one half of his countrymen. A inasmuch As 40 nations comprising three quarters of a people of the gluts1 have embraced the league nations As a term expressing a certain idea i prefer that term but i care Little for terminology. The a ennui thing is that the Republican party has pledged itself by platform by the actions of its majority in the Senate by the repeated statements of senator Harding that they undertake the fundamental Mission to put How it mud make these poor no guide fanatics laugh to see the Chi of the Republican party in the stat of Minneola travelling about t Tate urging the people to adopt co operation a an antidote for sip -ociali.-m.
