Ordinary decency require such thought for women but our Politico hate probably never Thot of it. An old line elevator manager can no longer steal of.

A Clever corporation lawyer con no longer trick the victim or the dependents of a victim of an Industrial Accident out of half or two third of what is tearfully due. Employers can not manipulate the court injunction to Knock out organized labor As they can Here. Speculator in tend have to pay a. Much tax As actual Farmers having land of ame value. Our politician have always let the Speculator Down easy. Nearly All the talk about High tax in North Dakota come from those ame Speculator who found themselves paying of r fair Hare of to amp be for the fir to time in . Re a Dent of Allied Lea and Freeborn county have fret Ham knowledge in this re poet thru the squealing of one w. Cd Mitchell Early this Spring. Or. Mitchell own a Quarter action of tend in North Dakota according to i statement. By his own admission he a Dom nothing to improve the tend simply holding it for a g 1 Price. Yet he howls when he has to pay a just tax on that piece of tend. We a detailed a few of the Little things that the a hog upper a have done in North Dakota. Our a a Learned a legislators in this state cannot Point to such Progre a legislation As having been done by themselves yet they Eek the vote of the Farmers and labourer. We wonder what their excuse is a sensible program candidate Harding peaking before a committee of Farmer organization men advanced co operation As the remedy for the marketing evil. Some people May now think More of Farmer co operation until after Campaign time when it Wilt again become class or a Nigatu re. We Are glad to see the idea popularized even through a Wal tract megaphone. The i. A Good time however to Issue a word of warning about Many new and prominent friends of cooperation do you realize that the politician have taken to boosting co operation a a cure All just be Cau a it will not hit tin big marketing interest ? do you realize they Are talking it now because the Farmer of the Northwest i Lave a big Dan that will do the work ? to hand i enough of int wheat co operatively to dictate the Market the Farmers would have i duplicate thine tent in terminal elevators and Mill now he d by til Grain Combine. Now think for a inmate As to where they would get the Money and How. I Hen recall that they would have to buy controlling i me rat in eve Tai railroads to get decent treatment. Then they would have to build up great Banks to Al Nace tie operation Independent of Wall Street. How Many years would it take to do this Macing with organizer running around in tin Lizzie arguing and pleading with Tom Dick and Harry ? to solve the packing Trust problem by co operation to e Farmers must likewise duplicate the investment of the b g five and buy a few More Railroad a the Farmer who i a been milked dry by the pro uttering of the last four years and whose parting with just 18 hard earned Dol ars brings Tea to the eyes of the new advocate. Of co operation. I Hen t Here is Wool potatoes Teret sugar and Garden truck to he taken care of after the bigger things a car will they All he finance-1 it the same time the North wet Farmer. Are going to capture their rut government. I lie having a government that represent he people they Are going to put some god Strung Legal rope on the middlemen and a fast a Poi is Ole their state is going to buy or build some warehouses elevators til. 11cold storage Plant and Slaughter houses. I he efficient Quot middlemen Are then going to he As efficient As there state plants or get out i hat a the plan for Relief before we Are dead and buried and its going across. The great French scandal a where Iron i there i the a Book by Clarence t. A Stein of England set Forth what would be to most of us an amazing scandal which was aired in France a year ago and concealed by the censorship from America it a to do with the Way interlocking directorates and ownership of the steel Industry in Germany and France interfered with the prosecute n of tile War on both sides. The in Mendel family i it the prominent figure. Francois de Mendel presided of the French steel Trust was a member of the Fionch parliament Charles de Mendel his brother whose mines on the German Side of the Lorraine fron tier connected with the French mines was a naturalized German Anil a member of the Reich Stag. All the Iron and steel pure a de for Fiance in England was obtained through Humbert de w Endel and his brother in Law was appointed to Check him up. The de Menlo family likewise distributed the Metal obtained to the various concerns which needed it in France. The French government referred to Francois tie Mendel the member All charges of profiteering in steel for investigation and report there were gentlemen agreements by which French air plane spared German smelters and the germans in turn spared the Coal mine of the French the French general staff officer responsible for Tho Protection of tile Trust property under the German Flag a an employee of the Trust. Thus we understand v by the i Arram sect a a it was called was quiet throughout the War until the american reached the front. The greater part of our men were Titca to this sector for training because it was quiet and the american army truck the first blow against the German smelters. Or. Merit conc us his Book with the remark that the fir to article in the covenant of the True society of nation would Lee a Coal and Iron can no More in any country remain private Peak their made the real sabotages m Hen machinery was invented the French ant saw it Only As a Means for taking away work and livelihood. They hated it. And they War on it. One of their methods was to pull off a wooden shoe and throw it into the works. The shoe was a a Sabot a so this practice was whet the government took Over the railroads the owner and manager Ani hanker exploiters did not like it. I hey saw government ownership As a Means for taking away their work and their livelihoods. So they threw into the works whenever they could do so without being found out. And so they made the government management More difficult. And there is still another motive at banker owners and managers of the railroads having got the government to guarantee them their profit whether they work or not have decided that it would be Nice for the government to produce indefinite millions in addition a for of a Goose will Lay one Golden egg Why will she not Lay two or two dozen so they Are sabotaging enough to make ure that the roads will not earn Money for Iretter ments. The recent Elevation of rates is calculated to take from the Public in addition to what the roads have been taking one billion five Hundred million Dollar a year which is j.00.ooo.ooo to the increase of wages and $000,000,000 to the Incret a of profits. Not biting would put one in the Field. It is to the everlasting credit of the members of the committee that not Only it they spurn the offer but they published the facts to All the world. And so now everybody in Minnesota knows except the readers of the kept press thai the very politicians who have been urging the people to a save Minnesota from socialism have been trying to put a socialist ticket in the Field. The Plain matter of fact is of Ami what other editors Are thinking about i mum ,uuinnl.- Christensen powerful forces of the common people Are Back of the Farmer labor ticket. Christensen regard himself As the John c. Fremont of the new party. M Hether he or someone Cise will be the Lincoln to head the move it la it i i i slim la Mim a ill a Mim it review amid comment Obi Kanotus topics i North Dakota Farmers have just had proof of How valuable it is to have in extra club on hand if said club is not used every Day. M Hen they passed their Grain in Section act they provided that the Tate could fix the your a that big business does t much went four years hence worries him fear the socialists with their in not at All. The one big Issue with practical vision of a far Distant him is the crystallization of Prog Rex Utopia but they do very greatly fear rive sentiment into an effective outline organized Farmer and workers that can save this coun with their definite practical plans for i Fry from the domination of Pluto limiting profiteering Here and now. Racy and militarism. This can no be built around or be dependent upon Hanks hired Man says a a my Hen any one big Man it Mas rest upon every Gol darned Money Grabier and the cause it represents Polit Ishun Kin git so Gol darned a Christensen is a powerful speaker j t riot in and respectable decent people Quot who instantly commands the Atten have to count on having pretty Bac Hon of his hearers. A Happy vein of reputed humor puts i audience in a recce rive mood. A Willmar Minn out in Montana big business has Tribune.
