This same House brought to test the constitutionality Minneota Minn. Of representatives which was con of these Bonds by the opponents of dear sir trolled by the i. V. A.

This suit was one of your subscribers in this passed a Hill just a few Days prior fought through every state and fed but one expense he Cut even More territory handed me an Issue of your to this to allow All High schools the Era court and finally passed Ujffy a i rustic ally than any other paper of August 19th, containing a privilege of charging Rural districts by the supreme court of the United the salaries Arni expenses of the summary of a speech delivered in a tuition fee of $6.00 per month per states. This held up the Bond Issue at once give the roads a billion of Legal department in june 1920, for your Community by a certain party Pupil for High school entrants from in the meantime Money rate had Money to keep them going the har example amounted to $17.99040. In named w. J.

Or. Ford believes concerning the nonpartisan league. Have been taxed practically since their current rate this was just another half billion to the private that railroads can be successfully of my first acquaintance with or.

At that time he was wholesale by the High freights and to lie a Ford Maxim. Visiting each school in the Small naturally he Cut other useless sex town asking for the privilege of prise he would have exulted As we All ought to exult when the right Tri urns Ami wrong is trodden under foot. For on the other hand the buccaneers Are plainly at work the Wilson government handed our railroads Over to private ownership and had to half the lowest wage doubled the hours of work shortened and the result an astounding Success. The whole country is suffering through inefficient and wasteful management. Of All the railroads none had a worse record or poorer Chance of Success than the Detroit Toledo Ami Trenton. The Bare Meta Are impressive. When in May 1926. A new York firm announced that bidders to let a unknown to Security owners had offered sixty cents on the Dollar for statehood to furnish state Aid to High what the opposition knew and they War successful in making it impossible to sell these Bonds at that time. During the legislative session of 1921, i was a member of Tine House and the charge was made time and a congressman who Dols things i inures Man Sydney Anderson ban. After 12 Long years of unremitting toil justified the Confidence placed in him by the electorate of the first congressional District. He has secured a captured German Cannon from the government to to Placid in the City Park or town Square in his Home town. Lanesboro. This is the brow iring achievement of Sydney a career in Congress representing As it Doe a dozen year of arduous labor and something Ever $75,090 of the tax payers Money that Sydney has pocket id in the Way of salary. True the taxpayers will hate to pay the transportation charges on the Cannon and the City of Lanesboro will have to pay for a base to place it on but when Thi is dime it will be Lanesboro very own the returned veterans of Fillmore county will doubtless be very proud of their representative and his thoughtfulness in presenting them with a memento of the world War. It is so much More practical and will be Mitre appreciated than a More sordid gift such As a Bomi for instance schools in this state. When or amok states that socialism dominates the nonpartisan league he utters a statement that facts do not Bear out the present Pense. This is shown by the fact faking before the students in the nonpartisan league of North Dakota a again by the i. V. A. Members that that the usual charge of about $5,000 interests of his Magazine which he is managed by a committee of five of the was bankrupt Ami that no a month for Clearing wreckage was maintained was being published to its members elected by the league reduced to $2,200 in june 1921 i further uplift work in this state.

After seven state wide elections in which the people voiced thir approval of certain reforms by a majority vote the men elected to ii upon to carry out the their right of socialistic Hen a new Page in political Economy a been written since i studied the subject. But in the six years since the league was organized at every election the opposition to the league have state both from the Pla Fonn and through the i that they were for the program Only in a More modified form in other words they Aper of millions of dollars of wealth in the nation has been launched. I May take the time later if the editor see fit to discuss this question for the Benefit of the readers of the Minneola Mascot. As a member of the House of representative. In the 1921 session from the 47th legislative District i had be feel called phia urn of witnessing what these wishes of the bridled progressives known a the i. V. A.

Instead every Effort was made to either Amend or repeal practically every progressive been reduced 0rd place to said or. Vol Force Quot of g with few Large cities i urn of the opinion that they May be called better. The so called free love propaganda is no longer mentioned by even the most Radical of the opponents to the league for when a comparison was made it a found that even a the instigators of this utterly idiotic f begins charge against the Farmers of a great la u proved of bonding the Tate to the extent of $2,000,000.0 for a terminal elevator and flour Mill while the league Felt that $5,,000.00 would he needed. Possibly the Sage from Lisbon can detection wherein Between these two figure social in i confess i am unable the.

The present state Board of administration has been criticised Beau a they saw fit to remove some of the in tractors and executive officer in some of the higher institutions of learning.
