"That government of the people,

There are two kinds of revolution.
One through the use of the franchise
-the other through armed resistance
to "constituted authority."
The farmers of Montana and the
labor unions--other than those that
advocate "direct action"--are or
ganizing and maintaining a campaign
for reforms through the ballot.
When we consider how comipletely
"constituted authority" has prevent
ed the impartial operation of the laws
and has honored and rewarded those
who have defeated the imperial op
eration of the laws in Montana dur
ing the last years-who can say how
ling the farmers and labor unions
can confine the revolution to the
tpeaceful channels prescribed by the
Let me cite jtfst a few items from
the records of recent years-items
where the lawful expressed will of

arrogantly flouted by those in au
The Brower farm loan law was
passed by the legislature in 1911. It
was ignored by the then attorney
general and governor, who refused
to obey its mandates.
A similar act known as the "Initi
ated Farm Loan Law" was passed
by the neonle. Attorney General
Kelley and Governor Stewart were
both members of the state board,
whose official duty it was to put the
law into operation. Both absolutely
refused and the farmers of the state
got a view of official sabotage. The
law did not get into effect until
years afterward, nor until the farm
ers of the state at their private ex
pense, had secured a mandate from
the supreme court.
The Whiteside farm loan law was
passed by the legislature and signed
byh Governor Stewart. More official
Attorney General D. M. Kelley,
Attorney General Poindexter and the
state treasurer finally succeeded in
preventing any operation of that law.
More official sabotage.
Yes, "sabotage." Sabotage is in
terfering with the operation of mna
c'hinery to prevent or retard produc
t on, as putting sand in the bearings
otf greasing belts to cause them to
slip. Official sabotage then is in
tbrfering with the machinery of gov
ernment to prevent production.
The farmers of the state could get
laws, but they could get no operation
of those laws.
During the same time that the
state officials were preventing op
eriation of the farm loan laws, the
infamous Northwestern Trustee com
pany was roblfing the needy farmers
of Montana of hundreds of thousands
of dollars, by fraudulent devices and
Governfor Stewart was one of its
stockholders, and that fact, together
with his name and title was used in

concern was A. M. Alderson, then

treasurer was its secretary and treas
urer. The three names, with the titles
of their offices, were used in adver

They have never been prosecuted
in the state courts.
B. K. Wheeler was United States
attorney, and did prosecute in the
federal court for tilhe only part of the
crimes of the Northwest Trustee com
pany and its officers that could lie
reached in that court, viz., use of the
mails to defraud.
It was in the course of that trial
that Galen and Kelly committed the
crimes touching the jury, for which
they were punished on information
filed by It. K. Wheeler. That crime
was not merely drinking at a public
bar with members of the jury, but
was of a nature to call in question
the integrity of the jury itself. Fol
lowing that misconduct, that jury dis
charged A. M. Alderson, and other
members of the political trust in
dicted with him.
Faith in the courts to punish crim
inals, if they were in or of the po
litical trust, received a severe jolt.
Yet even worse to follow.
A campaign of misrepresentation
and villification was instituted by the
political trust and its kept press, to
destroy B. K. Wheeler, because he
had fearlessly and honestly per
formed his sworn official duty.
Evil followed evil and the cam
paign succeeded. More faith in the
courts was destroyed.
As a climax, the Montana branch
of the political trust gave the office
that Wheeler had ably and honorably
filled to E. C. Day, thus approving
his moral code and record.

crimes and mob violence perpetrated
against farmers in different parts of
the state during the past 12 months.

Mob crimes that continue, like that
about Miles City last week, even
while the legislature is in session.
Add to these the hundreds of crimes
against the integrity of the ballot
and cognizable in the house, and you
have a dim picture of the state of
anarchy and utter disregard for law
or decency maintained by the polit
ical machine at the state capitol.
What can be expected from the la
boring men and women of Butte,
where they find themselves robbed
of the franchise, only to have insult
added to injury by the contemptuous
treatment accorded their petition by
How much incentive is there left
for them to continue to seek redress
through the quiet and peaceful use
of the ballot?
Observe, too, and remember that
all during the last 12 trying months,
the farmers of the northwest have
submitted, with long suffering pa
tience, to mob autocracy, to brutal
personal violence, in beatings,, un
lawful imprisonment, kidnaping, tar
and feathers, and mob denial of their
constitutional rights to peaceably as
semble, and in no instance have they
restored to violence. Not even when
violence-going even to the taking
* of life-would have been justified
under the law of self-defense.
While the farmers have unflinch
ingly maintained this record, "crim
inal syndicaism" has run riot in the
destruction of their most valuable
property, their good names.

THE ACID TEST i
If the latest report from Vladi- y
vostok is true, tb.e newly-created =
league mf nations Will face at the out
set the'itcid test is tb whether it is to
he a league of free peoples or a
league of capitalistic imperialism. -
According to the report, the czarist C
lictator, Kolchak, who is hiding in
Siberia from the just wrath of the it
Russian people, behind Czecho-Slov- $
ak, Japanese, British, Frdtch, Ital- 1
lan and American bayonets, has made -
a deal with the imperial .1Japane 1
government whereby, ill the event of
the withdrawal of the other allies, o
Japan is to furnish him with men, s'
money and arms to uphold his dicta- t
torship. In payment of this Japan
is to get iron and coal concessions in t
the Priatuur district.
With the deal Kolchak assures Jap
anese hegemony in Siberia. Vithout I
allied or Japanese bayonets his dicta
torshp would disappear in a week.
His dictatorship of the knout, of tor- _
tute and terror, is detested by the Si
berian people. Even so friendly an
observer as Carl Askerman, Siberian a
correspondent of the New York
Times, confesses that Kolchak has
been able to dragoon into his army
only a handful of Russians--and
they are all employed as servants to I
the officers. Kolchak has not the
least shred of legal or moral right
to sign away the wealth of the iRus
sian people to a foreign imperialismn
in order to perpetuate his tyranny
over a portion of the Russian people.
Admiral Kolchak's deal would
knock points 5, 6 and 14 of President
Wilson's famous 14 peace points into
a cocked liht. What is the league of
ntuons going to do about it?- -N. Y.
