Albert Lea Freeborn Patriot (Newspaper) - November 23, 1934, Albert Lea, Minnesota Page pour Albert Lea Patriot Friday november 23,1934freeborn Patriot issued weekly office 247 h South Newton phone 4373 Roger b. Ostby editor and publisher subscription payable in Advance one year.$1.50 six months. 100 three months.50 reflections of the past Campaign Well governor Olson was re elected by the comfortable margin of Over i 0,000. It was a great Victory for Olson. He had dared to defy the big Bankers. He had even caused the arrest of Over 20 of the Bank corporation leaders and is holding them for trial in the District court at Moorhead Minnesota. Too bad. Our local Wise financiers at Albert Lea were taken into Camp some time ago by Chain Bankers but our local Fellows liked it and our local daily newspapers liked it so they joined in a general howl against Olson to save the Chain Bankers. Before the election Olson was charged with bribery wife and child desertion theft murder and what not by the associated press and our dry evening Tribune but when the ballots rolled in and he was re elected by a Large plurality the same honest press published a Long article about his Early life his sturdy ancestry his courage honesty and fortitude and How he had worked himself up from a Young Man until his position of prominence of now through his own honest efforts. It was a wonderful change of front. The one article about his life published following the election should be clipped out by the readers of the evening Tribune and posted in their family album or Bible for future reference when Olson runs again for some office and for comparison when the newspapers again commence their barrage of slander vilification and mud slinging. Dear readers you must now know that the Hyp Cracy of the reactionary press like the evening Tribune is supreme. You must now realize that no dependence can be placed upon new papers about to reach your doors regularly from now on whose aim is to Tell the truth you will accept our Little efforts with deep appreciations. And the reactionary press have Defeated their own Good welfare. They have Defeated the will of the people. By a most scandalous Campaign undoubtedly backed by unlimited Money they prevented or partly prevented the election of a sufficient number of Farmer labor members for the legislature so that the favored candidate of the people is to be handicapped in his efforts on their behalf. A failure to enact legislation favourable to the common people during the next two years cannot be charged against governor Olson but should be charged against the newspapers the Chain Bankers and the smaller business and professional men who have no Independence of thought but who were constantly seeking to be one of the big Fellows. So join the reactionary element and follow them then to their own detriment. Olson the marked Man will come out Victor again at the end of the next two year. We Are still wondering about the bribe complained about to have been offered to John e. Regan just before the election. John seems to make no secret about it. If John had accepted who would have furnished the Money it seems to be generally rumoured that the old Republican Boss could have produced if John had accepted. It is too bad John did no to. Olson would have received a larger majority and the old Republican will continue wasting Money anyway so they might As Well have Given it to John. In our county affairs the Bunch in the court House was quite successful. The Campaign was most Likely opened by a private meeting Between the sheriff county attorney and the auditor for they All three filed together at the ides of March and seemed to work together throughout the Campaign. Elmer Peterson was the Only one of the three to have opposition and although it was none of their affair those in the sheriffs office seemed to work very hard for Elmer. The county auditor was of course so Busy with his Job As Secretary of the Federal land Bank that he could not be out in the Field but is rumoured that he was quite faithful to the articles of association. The Campaign was complicated towards the last by the requirement of the sheriff and local daily to make alibis for the general bootlegging in the county. These folks seem to be both wet and dry you see. The Gand final was persistent reports from the country that a. T. Vollum was rapidly gaining votes. The old gang became desperate and according to reports there was some Hustle and Bustle in the Tribune office and in certain parts of the courthouse henchmen were dispatched Here and there to All parts of the county a and then the county attorney becomes suddenly and conveniently and seriously ill before a Large Church crowd. He maybe had reasons for feeling that Way. He was dramatically removed for attention to a local Hospital hushed silence pervades the air a the Tribune makes hushed reports correspondingly comes to the Aid of the defenceless until the period of danger is passed. Thus was the Wool pulled Over the Peoples eyes and the game of Blind Many a Bluff once More was played. On election Day the afflicted Rose again was removed from the Hospital and the recovery was rapid. The strategy worked so the old gang still remains in Power. All the old county commissioners were retained without serious opposition. Nobody seemed to pay much attention to the commissioners election anyhow. Maybe that was not so important. There was a great stir in the Register of deeds office. It was a Campaign of personal visitation against letters postal cards and newspaper advertising. A lot of Fine handwriting was mailed out but the voters did not seem to care about that. Guess maybe they preferred to see a fellow in person rather than just look at his handwriting. So we got a new Register of deeds. It is rumoured he expects to keep the old clerks in the office. So we expect the business will go on More or less As usual. Pless and Mccornack put up a grand fight and they won a great Deal of admiration by their honest and clean Cut Campaign. Freeborn county never had a More intelligent fair minded Able or honest senator than senator Mccornack. They were faced with a theory of the Dollar turn Over tax. They talked about facts not theories. But in the general turmoil of the Campaign the voters were apparently and entirely confused and favored theories. The voters were apparently grasping for anything to get a change. The successful candidates Berglund and Rohne have assumed the Burden of putting far fetched theories into practice. We Hope they will succeed. If they done to succeed they will fail the will of the people. The Campaign Between Steele and miss Everall was a contest Between Man and woman for office and the Man won. Both were splendid candidates. So the excitement has passed. From now on this paper is going to spend time printing facts and figures relating to our state and county government under he elected officials. Then you can decide for yourself whether or not the election was a Success for us common folks. Lets get Busy Austin already has a municipal Light and Power Plant and now the Junior chamber of Commerce is working to establish a radio broadcasting station. Lets hurry we might find ourselves two Steps behind. Life is a Compromise about 15 years ago i heard a banker say when he was referring to Loans with borrowers from his Bank that life was a Compromise and that if his Bank or any other Bank was going to live it would be necessary in Many cases to Compromise with borrowers by cutting mortgages. His Bank is still a live institution and was one of the first to open its doors after the Bank Holiday. The nobility of France and Russia refused to Budge an Inch to the new order of the Day and they went the route of the Guillotine. The nobility of the scandinavian countries and England did from time to time Compromise with the new order until today they have the most democratic governments on the face of the Earth. In England communism or fascism or whatever political Faith the people Are protected in their right of free speech. During the War Ramsey Mcdonald went about England telling the people that England had no business in the War. Whenever he went he was protected by a group of soldiers. Today Macdonald is Premier of England. Of course the nobility of England has been shorn of All its Power but the English nobility still lives while russian and French nobility lies under the Sod. Today the capitalistic world is faced with the same Issue As was the nobility of old. The new order is asking that democracy be extended to Industry. The capitalistic world is in Many instances saying that the masses of the people do not have brains enough to run their own industries. The nobility of Russia and France told the people that they did not have the brains to run the government. They Are now doing a better Job than did the nobility. In the scandinavian countries and in England the old order is again peaceably giving Way to the new. Industrial democracy is being established and they Are on the Way to recovery. What will the american capitalist do will they be stubborn and insist that they Are the Only ones with brains enough to run our industries if they do then Pray to the almighty for mercy. Once too often they will order troops and gunmen to fire into strikers. The troops will join their fellow citizens. Then goodbye capitalists. History will again repeat itself. A word to the Wise is to Compromise and live to a Ripe old age. If the new Deal is going to succeed we must have organized labor the new Deal has not Only been approved by the people of the United states but it has been acclaimed. This does not mean that the people approve of everything that the administration has done but it does mean that the people approve of the fundamental principles upon which the new Deal is built. There can therefore be no doubt upon which Road we shall travel. One of the fundamental principles of the new Deal is that labor should be organized into unions that Are free from outside interference. Any Man who works against or interferes in any Way with the organization of labor unions is working against the will of the people. Those men and women who have attempted to organize company dominated unions have done More to Stop recovery than any other group of people. In most cases they have done this because of selfishness on their part. Remember that a company dominated Union is in no sense a legitimate labor Union. Pacifist you and i May be pacifist you and i May be but As Long As greed rules the world we Are in danger of both internal and external conflict. With Poison Gas being manufactured every Day it is Only Good sense that the citizenry be supplied with Gas masks. Surely a Gas mask can not be considered an offensive weapon.
