Albert Lea Examiner (Newspaper) - September 29, 1921, Albert Lea, Minnesota # endorsed by the Albert Lea trades and labor Council Albert Lea examiner if you a wrong you can the too conservative if you Are right you can Tik it too radical.99 a Vav Des and labor Council volume 2, number 39, Elbert Lea Minnesota thursday september 29. 1921 pc of single copies 5 cent. Open letter to president on disarmament the following open letter in relation to the disarmament conference dated september 23rd, Baa been addressed by or. J. A. H. Hopkins executive chairman of the committee of 48, to president Harding the honorable Warren g. Harding president of the United states White House Washington. D. A my dear or president now that you have designated the i delegates who will represent America at the disarmament conference it is perhaps fair to assume that you desire to instruct these gentlemen As to the wishes of the american people in respect to the purpose of this conference with a View to achieving these purposes. It is perhaps unfortunate that of the four delegates namely messes. Lodge Hughes Underwood and Root the two first mentioned have indicated by their Public utterances a difference in their individual views As j compared to the underlying purpose in the minds of senator Horah and the other originators of the movement which resulted in the calling of the disarmament conference. # but nevertheless All of these gentlemen Are experienced diplomats. They know that they cannot get something for nothing for it can be said with no disrespect and with absolute truth that under existing conditions the disarmament conference will be a a trading proposition. Each nation will doubtless instruct its delegates As to what it seeks co carry away from this conference and the approximate Price it can afford to pay. For this is the essence of International diplomacy. I am inclined to believe that there is a considerable element of the american people who consider that our government should demand from England France and Italy the immediate payment of the interest Al a ready overdue applicable to the vast sums which we loaned to them in the prosecution of the am equally convinced that it is not the desire of the american peo a pie to consider for one moment the Gratis Nous cancellation of these debts either in respect to interest or Prin j cipo. Furthermore i am heartily in Accord with the popular yearning for disarmament Ami world peace the desirability of which you have so often voiced this naturally suggests to me the following question Are the Ameri can people prepared to instruct our delegates to state openly when tire conference convenes what we want and what we will pay for it if so it is perhaps not inappropriate to suggest the advisability of submitting the following ultimatum to the English French and italian delegates a we will not cancel your indebtedness Gratis nor Are we Content to longer postpone the payment of the overdue interest thereon. But if you and the japanese Delegate. Will collectively a Rev to disarm or agree upon a uniform and progressive ratio of disarmament America will join with you in so doing and will simultaneously cancel or reduce your indebtedness to the american people to the same extent and in the same ratio. There is however no other Way in which the american people s will consent either to cancel or to reduce your financial obligations a the acceptance of such an offer would be economical for All concerned. It would solve the problem and achieve the purpose for which the disarmament conference was called. It would reduce enormously the bursting tax budgets of every nation and relieve the increasing financial pressure which is closing in upon every individual it is not unreasonable to suppose that such an agreement would meet with the Hearty approbation of the american Public. Will you As the mouthpiece of 110,000,000 people take cognizance of this suggestion and ascertain through the publicity channels which Are open to you whether in presenting such an ultimatum our delegates would be correctly voicing the wishes and desires of our citizenship respectfully yours signed j a h. Hopkins executive chairman com of 48.�?� in connection with the above or Hopkins said today a at a time when we Are groaning under the Burden of excessive taxation it is appalling to Realise that Over 90 percent of our National budget has been set aside to pay for past a wars and to prepare for future con Farmers plan pilgrimage to Jackson in event Townley goes to jail there us More than a possibility that a. C. Townley will have to make the sad pilgrimage to Jackson county jail to i begin serving the sentence imposed on him on or about the first of october. The Farmer organizations Are up in arms at this perversion of Justice and have been holding meetings All Over the state protesting the incarceration of this Champion of free speech and democracy. We have received letters from prominent banners and leaders in the Farmer labor movement announcing their intention to journey to Jackson enemas be on the Day that Townley arrives there if the Powers that get hold to their determination to jail him to participate in a last monster protest meeting and to tender their respects to that Stalwart figure who is paying the penalty imposed by the vulpine hordes of greed and graft for speaking the truth As he saw it. Several Farmers of Freeborn and Faribault county have signified to the examiner their intention of driving to Jackson on that Day to join in the monster protest against this Gross injustice. Among the rank and file of the Farmer movement it seems to let a the Universal opinion that jailing Townley will be the biggest Folly that the Powers that dictate could possibly perform. Tried As he was in the atmosphere of a hostile Community and denied his constitutional right of addressing a jury. Clear thinking and right minded men and women All Over the state those outside the league As Well As the members Are alarmed now that the sentence of the trial court seems about to be carried out. An old wheelhorse of the Republican party upon Reading the news dispatches concerning the Case said a what Are the d d fools trying to do make a Martyr. Out of him Quot the people without As Well As within the popular pastor flays a local Butcher shop North Dakota recall aim bared As Rule by old gang hungry for political plums Grain trades biggest guns will Roar next week the writer of the following letter is a Well known anti popular Devine having charge of three Large congregations in the Southeastern part of the county. We with Hob i his name not because he requested it. But to shield him from the Petty persecutions that would inevitably result were he known to the Pinch Berry profiteers to whom he evidently refers Leat. I e strengthen de Fargo plot to grab v. Senator ship. Bys 0 Mai it i i Immi it i Mim tel Milb a a a a a a a a a ill Mim Mimm i i it i a a a a a Mem s. Bismarck n. D. North Dakota in now in the midst of a recall election great stake. Judge Young of Fargo attorney for the Northern Pacific Railroad and recognized spokesman for the railroads in North Dakota is the ruling Power of the gang and a editor examiner i am not a politician nor a subscriber to your paper but am a minister of the gospel. I have read a Campaign that is looked upon by in the i v a. Organization. He fears sympathetic politicians As a great another nailed states senator like political hoax one of the most re senator Ladd and in a be ser degree Marrable in the history of the Tate. The re election of senator Mccumer Bor the recall election is not strict the Cost entailed in the great Effort in the outcome of the opposition to is not reckoned. The recall is order the nonpartisan league but rather of in Defiance of the wishes of the represents a determined Effort upon majority of the Buvina is men in the the part of an opposition faction state in the i. V. A., but through a known As the a Fargo gang Quot to gain hand picked convention at devils control of the political patronage of Lake the gang was Able to override few copies of your paper Ami note the fact that you strike direct from the state Ami to gain a position of the opposition and puh through the the shoulder. That being my motto advantage in the next election for recall on the false plea that it was i United states senator. Inaugurated for the purpose of of i he a Fargo gang a having gained taming a a business control of All the machinery of the opposition to the nonpartisan league. I Send the following article which you Are at Liberty to use if you wish the names of the parties being furnished on request league Are sick of the Dollar patriotism that has actuated the politicians of this state Ever since the War first loomed Over the horizon As an american possibility. Senator Follette has let Een driven $5,000 As a partial payment for the wrongs he endured at the hands of the tribe of scurrilous and unprincipled liars that misquoted his famous St. Paul speech press dispatches Tell us that Eugene Debs is about to receive hts Long expected Pardon the John Mients Case which attracted More than state wide attention has been ordered Back for a retrial and it seems that he has a fair Chance of collecting from the Rock county patriots who assaulted him. In the face of All this that a. C. Townley should have to go to jail not because he made the remarks attributed to him and for which he was convicted but let because he is the recognized head of a movement that is destined to unc Lasp the foul fingers of greed from a bout the necks of the common people seems unthinkable. Rut today such seems to let a the sad and sorry Case and the least we who Ite Lieve in the ultimate Victory of right Over might and in a free Minnesota where each shall receive that which is his can do no less than make the pilgrimage to Jackson to pay our respects to that intrepid Man who goes unflinchingly to pay the Price imposed by avarice upon those who Battle for the right. A Why anarchists Why strike1? Why discontent and is at intact Ion Quot to find the answer we have Only to open our eyes and see. Being in Albert Lea i thought to buy a mess of pork chops for dinner so went into a meat mat Ket on Broadway. Threw a Quarter on the counter and asked for two bits Worth of chops.
