Those Thrifty Klansmen.
The question, Why was the Ku Klux
Klan? was answered, certainly in part,
at Tuesday's session of the house rules
committee. From the testimony sub
mitted at this hearing it appears that
the leaders of this hocus- pocus cult
have succeeded in collecting $1,488,710,
and that the imperial wizard, William
J. Simmons, at Atlanta, Ga., receives
a salary of $1,000 a month for his
services. It is fairly evident from
these facts that one reason, at least,
for the existence of the Klan is that
it provides a few fairly fat jobs.
The imperial wjzard and his job lot
of aids, goblins, kleagles, etc., have
cleverly capitalized to their own ad
vantage racial and religious preju
dices, and have surrounded the whole
enterprise with a false halo of patriot
ism. "Depending upon the "joining"
proclivities of many Americans, and
assisted by certain mysterious rites,
incantations and ceremonials, they
have succeeded in separating a lot of
trustful citizens from $10- apiece. In
return for their money the members
have been privileged to attend meet
ings in damp woods, clad in sheets
and pillow cases, to carry torches and
otherwise make wild asses of ^hem
That the Klan may have collected
more than the $1,488,710 reported is
indicated by the testimony of one wit
ness who said that the total member
ship is 700,000, and this at $10 per
head would mean $7,000,000.
Congress ought not to dignify this
organization by subjecting it to an
official investigation. The attorney
general and the secret service already
are making inquiries and, if there is
any need for legislative action, it will
be revealed when these are completed.
The only effect now of a congressional
pfobe would be to give the Klan some
more advertising. If left alone it no
doubt will commit suicide.St. Paul
The Test in North Dakota.
North: Dakota will have another
election October 28 with "Townley
ism" as an issue. Radicals' ne time
got a recall provision into the North
Dakota constitution,, and now conser
vatives are invoking it against radi
cals, which in itself is interesting.
The efforts to recallthat is, to
dismiss from officeGovernor Fra
zier,. Attorney General Lemke and
Commissioner of Agriculture Hagen.
They are not being proceeded against
so much because they occupy the^of
fices their titles indicate, but because
they are members of the commission
that has charge of Mr. Townley's ex
periments in socialism. *Or, to be
more accurate, in state capitalism, for
this is really what is involved.
Probably the country will be able to
tell now what North* Dakota really
wants to do. It has looked as though
it wanted to try out Mr. Townley's
ideas certainly, thus far, candidates
representing Townleyism have been
winning the elections^though with de
creasing majorities. A good many
North Dakota people think, evidently,
that the people of that state are
wearied of this effort and ready to go

think that surely th^y would not have
invoked the recall at this time lor,
if the nonpartisan league wins this
fight it will be given a new lease of
life, not only in North Dakota but
elsewhere. On the other hand, if the
league loses this battle and finds three
of the principal officials.it has elected
voted out-of office, it will see its finish
in North' Dakota and find itself badly
handicapped in other states.
Movements, like, this of Mr. Town
ley'swho isn't being heard of in con
nection with Townleyism in North Da
kota so much as he has been, by the"75
waygenerally run a definite course.
They gather, threaten the security^of
the existing order, get control of a
local or a state government here and
there, reach their climax, dwindle and
pass off the stage. The only question
in Norths Dakota- is what stage -this
movement has reached, and whether
it has passed its climax and so is ripe
for defeat. October- 28 will show, and
it is wiser tp withhold forecasts until
As far as one may judge from an
outside observation, the opposition has
at least a fair chance to unseat Town
leyism. If it hasn't such a chance, it
was foolish to start this campaign, for
a victory now would be very valuable
to the league. The league doesn't
seem to have gotten very far with its
plans to socialize the machinery for
getting the North Dakota farmer's
products to the consumer.Duluth
The Highest Possible Wage.
The labor representatives in the un
employment conference opposed any
reduction of wages. "On_ the con
trary," they said, there must be a.
policy calling for the highest possible
rate of wages in every industry." The
Herald indorses the conclusion, but
suggests that it is hardly a logical se
quence from the premise. Whether or
not labor gets this highest possible
wage rests very largely with labor.
In the final equation what^goes to la
bor must depend upon what labor pro
duces. It can get the highest rate
only if it produces at that rate.
One of the finest results of the con
ference was that representatives of
employing capital and representatives
of labor, Jnet day.after day and dis

On this given .proposition we .doubt
if there really was disagreement. Ev
eryone wants labor to have the high
est possible wage. Wage is the meas
ure of labor's purchasing power. The
workers buy with what they get. This
buying, in turn, is the measure up to
per cent of production. It is an
endless chain and both capital and la-
