Senator capper United states senator capper of Iza Tion formed to Market their Grain. This has paved the Way for a meeting of a Shankers and Farmers a to be called by the politicians at the head of the Minnesota farm Bureau federation for statewide plans for marketing Minnesota Grain in other words the securities commission decision has shelved the Farmer a own movement in favor of lows within the next 30 Days business must get up and walk or return to its Rick Bod and to inactivity not to make another rally until next Spring and that rally is bound to be a feebler one. We now have the great impetus of the Harvest. Next Spring this will he lacking. I am convinced that if we Are to one approved by the Republican poll Quot. A a. _. _ a a a bring about a National restoration of Loans of the state and one which will not Hurt their friends the bunks and Grain men. The Farmers thought in their own crude Humble Way that the Way to make their organization absolutely immune to any attacks by men was to centralize the Power in the hands of u few men whom they could tru to. men Are to control both the uniter states Grain growers inc., the Farmers own Grain marketing organization and its subsidiary the finance corporation. So far a the Man in the Street is Able to see. The Farmers were and Are. Absolutely right. The wider the Power i distributed in such an organization. The better the Chance for its unscrupulous enemies to buy out or otherwise to secure the Power. Rut it is the feature of the finance corporation which incurred the displeasure of the state securities commis Don it pretends to fear that the Farmers in some Way need Protection against their 21 chosen representative. So ostensibly for this reason it denied the application this sort of an organization it says is contrary to the Minnesota co operative Law business before another year we must act quickly. As no Agency Public or private can do so much to bring this about As the interstate Commerce commission it is my belief that never in the history of the country will Power and the Opportunity to perform a greater Public service for the country than your commission now has i it me urge the great necessity for an immediate and reasonable reduction of rail rates on agricultural products and raw materials All along the line to manufactures. To do this will require courage i admit but not to do it it seems to me.
