A a a Issue in women of Minnesota will in their hands lies Power women voters decide the the com re Campaign supreme anti unquestioned whether or not the Industrial program of the organised Farmers and organized labor will to earned out in this sate depends for the most part on the women. It is imperative that Farmers and la eng men get their wives and daughters oho Are of Legal age to the polls november 2. _ men May talk More a pm titles and seem More Active in the Campaign but All their activity and to k is Mere froth on the water that turns the Mil wheel. The whee will be turned by the woman vote. The opposition to the Farmer labor progressive movement is Awane of this fact. Already they Are making headway. They Are making a grand Tarn play for the woman vote and they will get a share of it. But it is up to Farmers and working men to counteract this movement it can be done. Bight now close political observer admit that if the women were not voting this fall Henrik Shipstead and other or in Ives. Endorsed by organized Farmers and organized labor would Carn the state. But the woman vote has to be considered and they Are at a to to figure which Way the wind blows. No one can say that the women will Iii vide the same Way As the men. Neither can it be estimated How Many women will Avail themselves of their privilege the ballot. It cannot i gue de whether the women will consider the Farmer labor program with its minimum wage eight hour Law for women its Home building program its Appeal to keep the Money at Home and its Appeal for the chastity and Honor of womankind such a now exists in North Dakota As sufficient to Merit her App Val. Against this set of meritorious endeavours we have the propaganda spread by the opposition having for it base personalities upon the personal character of men. Insi Fence that the Farmers labourers and their leaders Are Bent on making this a socialist government. Den it ing the existence of Coil Ami inaugurating a reign of free love. If the finn Porti tin league through its leaders or it members stand for such an immoral and blah Phemom program it de Erve to be beaten any True blooded american would Lead the fight again to it. But intelligent jut son know that thee lying attack against the league Are falsehoods builder on propaganda coming from old gang politician who fears loss of control. The women in the City will not find it difficult or embarrassing to walk two or three Block to cat her first vote. She will not stay at Home. The anti league crowd will be that their women friends get to the polls. They will take them there to automobiles. It is up to the adoring Man to Uke his wife with him november 2nd. Of he has any daughters of \ Ting age they should he taken along. But to woman on the farm a no it Uch encouragement. No attraction is set Forth to gain her vote. She May have a great distance to travel Over rough or Muddy Road to duly through a storm. She May have to leave work that hould be to gone children that should be watched. But the progressive movement must have the farm vote both Iron the men Ami the women. Farmers would consider it their duty to take their wive and daughter to tie polls at the general election november 2. It is for their own Good to do so. The Fate of the Progre Ive movement undoubtedly rests in the hands of the women. May they be guides to a True and jut Deci Ion mrs. Shipstead a opinion mrs Henr it ship Lead \ Ife of or. Henrik shipload. Independent Progress Ive candidate for governor was a ked by a reporter for the associated pre some time ago How she would like to Ltd see her husband wan and become the first lady of the state of Minnesota. She replied a i should rejoice in the Victory for our cause but personally it would make Little difference to me i should be very much like a Mother when she reads of a great and victorious Battle in which her son gave the supreme sacrifice a his life for his country. No position or glory could Ever in a me forget the Honor of the past four years the heart breaking humiliations the Corn the ridicule the merciless cruelties to which our men and women have been objected in this Battle for democracy and Justice a Lim. Ship Lead voices the sentiment of the Farmer and labor candidate for governor. Or. Ship Tead does not care an Iota for the Honor connected with being governor of this state but he cares everything about the cause and ii willing to make sacrifice of every description to see the progressive movement sweep the state. Whistling to keep up courage remember when you were a Small boy now you whistles to keep up your courage when you parsed a graveyard ? the More noise you and your Small companions could make the More certain you were that nothing would grab you before you had passed by. Whistling and noise making to keep up one s courage was then a typical youngsters trick but grownup men now seem to have adopted the Small boy s custom if one can judge by the courage maintaining devices used by the opposition press. They by their pages with gorgeously coloured account of meeting and by the extravagant uses of adjectives and conscience less misstatements of facts they try desperately to make their deluded followers lie in pc that there is Little possibility of defeat november 2. The local daily Small Parrot of the twin City a kept pres a blare Forth continually along this line explaining what a wonderful Man is Jakic Preus and what a terrible Radical is or. Henrik ships Toad and others on the Independent ticket who they always allude to As the a Townley the truth of the matter really is that Breus Backer including the local daily Are afraid of the outcome november 2. Close ohs Ervil of the political situation in Thi it Tate admit that or. Shipstead and his co workers have an excellent Chance of winning. The democrats will in voting for Larry Hodgson at the coming election which will cot Jake considerable when the ballots air counted. This is going to be a big Factor in determining the Winner. It is conceded that shipload Mal in and Sullivan will poll a big vote As they did in the primaries and they Are gaining strength rapidly. But Preu strength in rapid a diminishing and loing several thousand Democrat votes i not going to help him any. I Ike the Small boy. The Preus backers Are whistling to keep up their courage. They Are going Pat the graveyard and the ghost of their past misdeed will arise and smite them mightily. They can feel their dream of Power and desire for future control of the Peoples government was disappearing. They need something Strong to put them to sleep once More and the nation is Bone dry. The opposition should not be condemned too harshly for whistling and making loud noises to encourage each other All they can. Ifs the Only method they have left of holding their dwindling rank together. I of. I Jpn review Amel Comra Esit olm various topics we hear a lot of wild talk about toe Farmers and workers menacing american institutions just As it there were not u whole lot of them that ought to be menace to death. Train gambling is an american institution. One might even Call it an american tradition. No Man living can Rem Emly or the time when the gamblers did not Tell the Farmers what they could have for their produce. We must confess to wanting to see the skids put under this particular institution and we Are glad to see a lot of business men getting j in the same Frame of mind. Hoarding by cold storage and other Means to Blee the consumer is an american institution. We Are menacing it All we can. Monopolies Nave seized on every of civilized life. Our a pre me court has put its o. K. On Ltd a a a suffer from past Folly that he in. Learn Wisdom.

At Versailles. America had the Chance to heal the wounds of e. Rope quickly and she would not. Our Farmers 4.000 Miles away pay part of the penalty. In nine states of the Northwest this fall the people have a Chance to monopoly by deciding recently in re decide whether they want to continue Gar to the steel Trust that a no go to pay the Price which Providence wheat and to make our bondage More Complete we vote for the system yet. A fool there was. And he goods had none even As you Anil i he worked All Day from Sun to Sun.

And it did no to take Hank no time a tall to say that if he we Zient a non Artishuk head have sense enough to be or. Henrik Shipstead or. Henrik Shipstead Independent candidate for governor endorse by organized Farmers and organized labor spoke to a Large audience Here last tuesday. Men and women voters of Albert Lea and h rec born county were delighted at their first Opportunity to hear the progressive candidate in this Section. Or. Shipstead is not a wonderful speaker. He does not pretend to be. But he Brot the people of this Community a real message one that should give them plenty to think about before they go to the polls november 2. Or. Ship Tead wears the Collar of no tru to or corporation. He is the people a Choice for governor of Minn Ota he a nominated by the people. If elected he will carry out the Wishe of the people not the desire of the special vested interests. Exposing the Teel Trust big packers Grain Gambler and lumber Barons is not the special Delight of i or. Shipstead. But he believes the people should know the facts he has in his Possession. He is giving them to the people during this Campaign and if voters will it get begin to think intelligently an t cast their bad t for their own a St at the coming election he will not lie the Loer. Or. Ship Tead is a Rifting considerable financially to make this Effort. If he win the Honor of being elected governor of this great Tate he will still be considerable in arrears financial a. It is not a financial proposition with the candidate Bue he is anxious to oust the special privilege crowd and place honest men in office men who will protect the rights of the common people. A vote for Shipstead Halloo Sullivan and others on the Independent ticket will accomplish this result. Be dents of Thi Section of the state were More than plea de at having an Opportunity to hear the pro Gre Sive candidate for governor. Should he Ever lie Able to return to this Section again whether he be governor of this state or the Man who ran for governor he will be azure a Hearty Welcome. Men and women when they go to the polls novem or 2, should cart their ballot for the Shipstead ticket. A vote for that ticket will assure government a by the people for the people and of the that the welfare of the masses of the the scripture it in that the sins of the people is a Good purpose. Rulers the government Are visited putting the families of victims of upon the people. Industrial accidents at the mercy of corporation lawyers is an american institution founder on the common Law. Which in turn was made by tin English ruling classes. Ohio Washington and North Dakota have put the skill under this institution. I Ach action is disloyal there a r Hope of our Ever being Loyal. The big Bankers have always Fob i towed the practice of calling farm Loans just after the Harvest to drive the Farmers to Market for the Mil. Idlemen. Our great Federal system recently made this Market Gambler Alliance perfect of this Alliance had one neck. We would enjoy being the executioner. We Are glad that the Farmers and workers in the states of the Northwest have a Chance to execute it at the poll this fall. And let us add that we love those american institutions Worth preserving because they serve the common people just As much As we hate those which Are bleeding the common people White. Aside and his legs lived on though his head had died even As you and i it Isnit a shame and it Isnit the blame that stings like a White hot Brand its the cussed foolishness of a Jay who la work ten hours for two hours pay and vote for the Bunch on election Day and will not understand. A pert Leach in the Public. What is the matter Arthur Brisbane one of americans most forceful writers asks and answers a question Paramount on the hands of those who have the country s interest at heart. He asks a what is the matter with this country a a and he answers a those that have the Power to make conditions better Are not interested in milking them and to prove his Contention Brisbane continues a the president the owner of a great industries and others that have the Power of which Money is the foundation sympathize with the poor hut they can not fundamentally or really feel with the it Oor. You can imagine but you can not feel that which does not touch Brisbane says the poor woman who really feels things such As the High Cost of sugar milk clothing or rent has no Power to change them. The powerful men he adds who could change conditions do not feel them. The solution lies in selecting men who do feel the sting of poverty who know what it Means to be unable to still the cry of hungry children for Public office. Among the working classes there Are Many capable men a far More capable Many of them than who now try to represent us. If they feel the conditions which j oppress the struggling they will change journal Cincinnati.

Someone has said that government Are like fish in that the head spoils . No country can expect Prosperity with brigands doing the managing. The anti Farmer argument of our contemporary Are stupid enough to deserve quotation in Minnesota issues. In fact we have even seen a quotation or two from the local Parrot of the a kept press in the big business scandal Sheet. Minnesota issues is known among Farmers and labourers As the great leg pulling Magazine that never discusses Issue. Despite this fact it is called a Minnesota issues a great truth lies Back of the old political argument of holding i party in Power responsible for panics and other general misfortunes. We done to hear so much of it these Days of course because the politician. Have worn it out with bad use. The evil of it Lay in the fact that the party on the out had no intention of serving the people better if it got in. A government is responsible for the condition of its people the function of government is to arbitrate Between Man Ami Man. God give us great natural resources. There enough to live on and to spare in the not a bet or a guess. The whole meaning of an election is that voters Hall Choo a Between candidates. Now the voter who cast a vote for a Man not because he believes in the Man and what the Man stand for but because he gue is that the Man is going to win. Has lost something More than his vote. He has lost his Chance to say to himself a a voter a i think a i act on what i think a i am no sheep in a daily Star.

Colonel Mccoy has pleased the reactionaries by his advocacy of Universal compulsory military training for Wisconsin Ami for a mounted state police similar to the Cossack constabulary of Pennsylvania which Gary used to subdue steel workers in their Effort to gain a decent livelihood. Such a cry of revulsion against colonel Mccoy s bold plan has come from the Public that he has been inclined to hedge and withdraw his ardent advocacy of military training and a Cossack police.
