They know that the Tribune has always opposed anything that has not meant something in the Long run for the Tribune itself.

T a or smaller concerns to compete with them. The Tate alone having those re source necessary to furnish that or. Shipstead used the present Price of wheat the t Price of flour Ami feed made from that wheat and the great difference in those prices to Point out the need of such Competition. His numerous illustration of operation of the tax Laws of North Dakota was very Clear Ami to the Point. Or Shipstead gave a graphic description of his experience with Highway robbers at Carlton and in comparing their method with those of the Coal interest remarked that in his opinion the Only difference waa that the men at Carlton were bikers at the game of Holdup.

He voted against the appointment of judge Louis d. Branders to the unite state supreme court he voted against giving publicity y to ire they must have them to win but the Pruitt. Milie by corporation in the Wake of the news that the National officials of the United mine workers of America still face charges of conspiring to violate the lever act May be news to most of our readers. Their trial is set for november 8, at Indianapolis six Days after the election. When the injunction was secured in the court of judge Ander on of Indianapolis forbidding the National strike for better condition in the fall of 1919, the indicted officials bowled before this High handed use of War time legislation in peace time and called off the strike. It was difficult to understand what More they could have done and there was considerable argument in labor Circle a to whether they should not have defied such violation of the constitutional rights. Kansas miners organization adopted the latter course and went to jail when governor Allen started the Industrial Monkey Busine. The miners of the nation however in 1919 went out on strike in Defiance of the order of their leaders As Well As the governor Only North Dakota was Able to keep its mine going. Now the Federal government is endeavouring to hold the Coni prom leaders of the mine workers re Pon sible for this mass Adion of the rank and file. Nomination of former senator Hardwick for governor of Georgia on the democratic ticket Hows that the recent Vidor of Lorn Watson in the race for unite state senator really indicated the sentiment of Georgia and was not a Freak occurrence senator Hardwick a one of on whom the vials of wilsonian Wrath were poured out because of i Atti j tu4e on declaring War and i Atti Alexander Howatt president of the Tuff on the peace treaty at Versailles at the time of the first Wilson attack on Hardwick two years ago it was sufficient to prevent i Renomin-1 at Ion for the United state Enate. J Hardwick however a not Monde his ways in the meantime and among his late a a sins is that of serving a Legal counsel for Ludwig Marten Enate hearing last Winter. Europe now appear to be in great i danger of an epidemic of disease. Over 00,000 typhus Case Are reported in Poland. The poles appear to have no mean of fighting it except the Volunteer Charity efforts of private organizations of other countries. And lacking the scientific control which has hitherto been Superior to Thi corporation interests in Minnesota declare it is bad form for the candidates of the Farmers and workers to run in the Republican primary and then to run independently. On this Point or.

It is apparent that the Democrat Are not going to have the Wool pulled Over their Eye any More by the steel Trust crowd. Here is another example of the a Poison Gas used by the Tribune to Way opinion of voter a we knew it All the time but just the same it pleased a to hear it from a prominent focal labor Union Man. Thi Albert Lea citizen who a a wife and a Fine family stepped into the Tribune office and after paying his subscription said to the editor �?�1 am a Union Man and belong right Hare in Albert Lea. I am in a position to know that the majority of this City a Labouring men Are not going to vote for ship Stead and the rest of the non partisan league Bunch.
