TOWNLEY IS DENIED
Jackson C o u n ty (Minn.)
Judge Rules He Must
Be in Court.
Jackson, MIinn., July 3.-If the
special referendum election in North
Dakota on tile new farmer legislation
has attracted the attention of the
entire country, it is no less true that
the trial of President Townley and
Joseph Gilbert here on the trumped
up charge of conspiracy has attract
ed the anti-league venom of the en
tire country too.
All the unscrupulous, foolish stor
ies of league disloyalty, of La Fol
lette incidents, or I. W. W. connec
tions, of sinister, hidden meanings of
everyday words and phrases when
used by Nonpartisan league speakers
--in short, every shred of alleged
evidence that the league was disloyal
is to be rehashed and gone over. It
will be done not so mnuch because of
the bearing of these things on the
Jackson county case as because it
will give the controlled press occas
ion to display the old spasms.
Knowing that the courts in Jack
son county would be prejudiced
against the Nonpartisan league be
cause of the unusually vicious meth
ods used to keep the league out of
that county in 1917 and 1918, the
league lawyers moved for dismissal
of the case before the supreme court,
but this was denied. While league
speakers and organizers have been
kept out in defiance of our funda
mental law, anti-farmer interests
have flooded the country with incen
diary literature and speechmaking.
And the rulings of the court so far
have shown that the fears about an
unfair trial were well founded Con
Irary to sectionl 200 of the ilillneso
ii code, Judge Dean ruled that M1r.
Townley had to auppear plersotally in
c(urt. This section explressly p)ro
vides that defeldantas luay be repro
senltel in court by counsel otnly in
tmisldemealnor cases. There was ob
viously the intention to p1it through
what could be painted as an hunmili
ation of the league president and to
ilnterfere with his work in the North
Great Bias Shown.
The judge has also refused to keep
t11he witnesses out of the coulrtroomll
and they an thus liear what le 1an11111
on1 tihe stand testifies antd rleframl e
their stories accordingly. te has re
fused to allow tihe defense to clal
lenge two jirollls tor cautlse whenll one
adlmittted thalt evidenclle would have to
be pro(luced tol set hinl right, itand
when another declared to a barber
that everybody seemlled to bIe pre
judiced against the league. At atin
other time lie atoppled the defense in
cross-examll illitg a "witness on the
ground that it was delaying the case.
The case wa\ iroglit lby the Jack
son counity attornlley last year whletn
the federal I goverllient refused to
take it ilup after strong pressure had
beenl brought to do sio. 'Thlle federal
lirosecutor could see nothiing in the
evidenlce. Timhe indlictment, therefore,
is brought lunttder a state law, the con
stitutionality of which has inever
been passed oin bly the fedteral c(ourt.
and alleges conspir iacy to iliscourage
enlistments i aId hinder the prosecu
tion of the war.
The conspiracy consists of the fact
that league leaders talked andtt organ
ized in Jackson county after they had
bean u.nlawfully forbidden to do so
alld that league palmers anld literature
were circulated, thy saUme literature
which the supreme court of the state
found to be patriotic in a similar
case brought up fro.:t Martin county
in July, 1918.

for the new era of industrial democ.
racy which he believes must shortly
be inaugurated. Senator Poindexter
has presented a resolution which di
rects the president to call such a
congress, but his resolution does not
cover Manly's idea except in general
"The delegates to this industrial
congress should not be named by the
president," he 'explains. "They
should be selected by the bodies they
are supposed to represent. Democ
racy requires that, and de..ocracy
should be the chief aim of the con
gress and of all who attend it.
Shouinl " iiow British Exa.iple.
"The British employer realizes
that the war has swept away the
whole foundation of industry as it
used to be conducted," Manly adds.
"He knows that both management
and profits must be shared with the
workers, and he is willing at present
to meet with the workers to arrange
the details of this joint-partnership
and division. We can do no better
than follow the British example here.
America could not escape being in
volved in the world war, and we can- -
not escape sharing in its conse
quences. We were slow to prepare
i'or hostilities, but we should make
all haste to prepare for what has
come in the wake of the war.
"The work of the war labor board
has shown that far-reaching agree
ments between workers and employ
ers can be attained if the two groups
can be brought together to consider
the facts. The industrial congress
which I propose would constitute
such a getting together. It would
not legislate. It would promote
voluntary agreements, which are
much better than legislation in many
Women'si Chances Good.
With such states as Pennsylvania
and Massachusetts tumbling over
r hemselves to endorse the Anthony
amendment to the constitution, the
chances are excellent that all the
f women in the United States will help
- select the next president, if they
s want to. Govrnor Goodrich of Mas
sachusetts recently sent out requests
to 30 state governors asking them to
call special sessions of their legis
latures to pass on the suffrage
:amendment. Twenty-five of these
governors have agreed to do so.
The suffragists are pushing their
campaign in every quarter. Legis
lators are being urged to petition
governors to call extra sessions. In
this connection a very intelcsting let
ter was received the other day by
Governor Sproul of Pennsylvannia,
from Mrs. Charlotte L. Pierce of Phil
' adelphia. Mrs. Pierce knew Susan
SB. Anthony at Seneca Falls in 1848.
lie letter reads:
A Life-Long Worker.
"Will you please accept the con
gratulations of an old woman, who
has been a life-long worker for equal
suffrage, upon your privilege of be
ing in office at a time which wit
nesses the competition of this move
ment in Pennsylvania. As a girl of
18 I attended the early meeting held
at Seneca Falls, N. Y., in 1848, and
it is a great satisfaction to see the
day when this bill comes before you
and the great end is attained."
Liberals are recalling the time
when Susan B. Anthony insist' d upon
voting in New York state, many de
cades ago, and was placed under ar
rest as an enemy of society. The
judge before whom she was arraigned
employed that ancient form of de
nunciation which never grows stale
in the mouths of reactionaries, say
ing: "Madam, if this country is not
good enough for you as it is, why
don't you leave it and go somewhere
else?" It seems to be a fortunate
thing for human freedom that some
agitators insist on staying where they
are not wanted.
Financiers Favor League.
Conservative betting on th.' Ieague
of nations is now about three to one
in its favor. The country is still in
favor of peace so strongly that it is
willing to pay a havy price for it.
Senatorial opponents of the league
have said enough to indicate that
America becomes pretty deerly in
volved in foreign affairs by thiss step,
but the mental retort to critics is
that the absence of a league did not
keep us out of the world war. The
big financiers, also, are now united
in defense of the league, so republi
can opposition will soon die out.
Burleson Rebuffs Committee.
Postmaster General Burleson gave
a sharp rebuff to the committee
named by. the American Federation,
of Labor convention to see him in
behalf of the striking telegraph op
erators. Ten days earlier Burlesosn
had warded off a strike of the elee
trical workers' union by conceding
their right to collective bargaining.
The later delegation went to ask him
why he would not grant the same
right to the telegraph operators. In
his reply to the delegation Burleson
chose to ignore his policy toward the
electrical workers and to make the
pompous assertion that "established
governmental policies hall not be
abandoned, nor governmental powers
surrendered to employes because
of threatened or attempted labor
strikes." In the case of the
electrical workers Burleson dis
covered that what he calls "estab
lished governmental policies" were
nothing more than the persocal rul
ings of Burleson, which could very]
conveniently,and properly be altered
in face of a, threatened strike.
The plan of world finan'iers to
create an international ecnholidation
is severely' criticized by George P.
Hampton, director of the Farmers'
