The Embattled Farmers.
The farmer is and always has been
the*" cornerstone of this republic. Cor
nerstone? He is well nigh the whole
foundation, in fact pretty much the
edifice. It was the farmers who made
the thirteen colonies, decreed indepen
dence, wrote^ the constitution, devel
oped the country, and who today Will
save our institutions and perpetuate
nation when he fully understands
the issue and is able to clear himself
of the traps set for him by plausible
The farmer is a natural conserva
tive. He is the natural American as
well as the original one, and he still
constitutes the court of last appeal in
Early legislation was largely in the
farmer's interest, and established him
as the main estate of our free republi
can fealm. The homestead law de
termined the character of all our west
pretty much from the Appalachians
to the Pacific.
So well provided for was the far
mer both by nature and by law that
he has not been demanding much since
the civil war. True, passing condi
tidns have at times urged him to take
up the panaceas designed to cure rail
roads, or mortgages, or middlemen,
but for himself and his status the far
mer has not been demanding much.
He ought to have some things, nev
ertheless. As a political and economic
investment no government can do bet
ter than to legislate to keep the farmer
on the soil, to keep the land in the
working farmer's possession, to fos
ter the farmer's welfare, provide for
his education, consider his conveni
ence, cherish him as an individual and
promote the interestsNrf his class.
The farmer is the one indispensible
unit for a republic. It was the Ameri
can farmer who really curbed Ameri
can business when it had grown ob
streperous. It is the American far
mer who will curb organized labor
which today has a somewhat exagerat
ed estimate of the function it per
forms of the power it can exercise.
The common sense of the American
farmer before he concludes, is going
to jolt excess of labor action, just as
in Roosevelt's presidency it jolted the
toploftiness of the supermen of busi
ness. The farmer is the balancewheel,
the leveler. He proposes to continue
this republic unchangeably American,
to continue it as a land of opportunity
to the self-helper and not as a board
ing house for lazy. agitators and un
