Yes, an American Englishman who
.understands why America went into
the war, wlw knows the language of
human rights and wrongs spokfen by
Tom Jefferson and .Abe Lincoln, who
hates secret diplomacy, and the forces
.that plot war in bade rooms where
the people know nothing about it.
"America is difficult to understand,"
Galsworthy in his high room over
looking the Dlue sweep of Lake Michi
gan. "You have your eastern states,
the south, the far west, the middle
west—each of them a section with
separate identities and traits. To un
derstand America one must under
stand these different sections, each
one almost a nation in itself in its
people, products and expression.
The question was asked Galsworthy,
"What picture does your mind form of L'
the probable developments in Europe^
mid Britain'the next'five years?" His
"I suppose we must all admit the
possibility of Europe turning to Bol
shevism. If Bolshevism comes to Ger
many I suppose it will come to France,
too, don't you? I hardly see how
France can escape it if it takes root
"In that event, with all Europe Bol
shevist, I rather expect a curious
change of feeling in England You
know, England has always regarded
itself as separate from the continent.
The English might resist continental
Bolshevism just as they resisted Na
"And your British labor men—
would they join against continental
Bolshevism?" was asked.
"I think the extremist feeling in la
bor has its chief strength in certain
not very English districts. Speaking
in large outline* would, say that
the conquest of Uu. /jto the Bolshe
viks would intensify an ancient feel
ing of many Englishmen that England
is. separate from the continent and
should not come under the dominion
of continental forces."
Often Galsworthy talks in a .tele
gram style. He gives you ten words
"and leaves you to imagine for your
self a thousand words of explanation.
Once he said:
"I would not advocate a revolution
unless such a revolution could have
the element I would call by a veryrbad

Lord Haldane, quoted in the London
Times as saying,
of the present situation is that the
working classes refuse to believe any
thing we tell them."
"I should say that is probably true,"
replied Galsworthy. "It may not ap
ply to the trades union leaders bat
the rank and file—yes. It is a curi
ous Nemesis that a press which has
led the people for centuries, or at
least, decades, should come to this."
"Those British lions in bronze in
front of the Chicago art institute—we
want to ask you about them, Mr. Gals
worthy—it taa$ been suggested that
they are imitative and the American
buffalo, like the one on your coin, the

TO ARGUE AWAY
Counsel for President of Non
partisan League Says He Did
n't Mean What He Said
BEFORE SUPREME COURT
St. Paul, Minn., April 0.—Arguing
the appeals in disloyalty cases against
A. C. Townley, national president, and
Joseph Gilbert, former national organ
izer of the Nonpartisan league in
Jackson copnty, heard today in the
state supreme court, Representative
George Norlin and F. A. Piltc, St. Paul
attorneys, sought to explain away the
alleged seditious language attributed
to the league officials. Townley and
Gilbert demurred to an indictment
charging them with conspiring to vi
olate the state law against sedition.
The Jackson county court- overruled
the demurrer and certified to the su
preme court the questions raised in
the attack on the indictment.
Seditious Language Charge.
Gilbert's appeal was from his con
viction under the same law, the charge
being that he used seditious language
at a meeting. January 23, 1917, in

the St. Paul auditorium were among
grounds upon which was found the in
dictment charging conspiracy. It was
further alleged that Townley and Gil

Express Employes Will Receive
Salary Boost and Four
Months' Back Pay
ALL GO UP $25 PER MONTH
Director General Hinesu Decrees
That Flat Increase Be
A. million dollar bonus will be
drawn Thursday by^lO.OOO North Dav
lcota express workers as a result ofN
Director General Walker D. Hines'
order of April 14 awarding express
employes in every department a flat
increase of $25 per month and decree
ing that this advance shall date from
January 1, IJUS.
Thursday, in addition to their us
ual stipend, their will be due 10,000
North Dakota express messengers,
agents and helpers 10,000 $100 checks
representing back pay at the rate of
$25 per month from January 1. This
will apply, to the lowly office boy and
the janitor as well as to the lordly ex
press messenger or general agent.
Naturally, there is considerable jubi
lance in express circles today.
New Wage Scales.
Under the old regime express em
ployes were not exactly overpaid
There has been an increase or two in
wages since Uncle Sam took over the
business, but even now the average
salary paid express office workers
only ranges from $60' to $135, while
express messengers receive from $90
to $125, somewhat less than mail
clerks or baggagemen in the same line
of work. Director General Hines' or
der will make the minimum wage in
any circumstance $45 per month* for
office-boys, errand-boys and chore
boys, and $70 per month for janitors,
elevator and telephone operators, of
fice, station -and warehouse watch
The minimum wage in a majority of
instances will be not less t'-ian $85 per
month, while the maximum will be in
creased to $160. And this is not all.
Director General Hines has decreed
that effective today eight hours shall
constitute a standard day for express
workers and that a wage rate of 1_1-
shall be received for all overtime
work. It is also ordered that a relief
period of not less than 96 hours in
each calendar month shall be allowed
at the home terminal for messengers
and others whose duties result in ir
regular periods of employment.
.Means More Jobs.
An immediate effect of this order
will be to create a demand for more
men. The Northern Pacific office of
the American Express in Bismarck
now employs eleven men. As the
trains run, extended over a period of
1!) hours out of the 24, these men can
not do the required work without put
ting in over time. An addition of two
or -three employes to the local staff
probably will he found the simplest
means of meeting the situation. The
same no doubt will be true of other
,large offices in the state.

The appointment of Fi Y^'. Cathro
of Bottineau to be general director of
the Bank of North Dakota with par

partments seems to be meeting'-with
general approval among the bankers
of the state, Mr. Cathro is a pioneer
North Dakota banker who located in
Bottineau in 886 hefSre the railway

a strong, progressive record in bank
ing circles in the northern part of
the state. He was the first pr&sidenl
of the North Dakota Bankers' associa
tion, which he was instrumental in or
ganizing. and he has been active in
its counsels ever since.
"We appointed Mr. Cathro because
he felt he was the man for the job,
and not with any regard to Jiis poli-j
tics," said Commissioner John X. Ha-1
gan of the industrial commission to
day. "The league had finished its
share of die bargain when it succeed-j
ed in passing a law establishing a
bank of North Dakota. The moment
that bill was passed the Bank of1
North Dakota left politics. Our sole
aim from this time on is to make the
institution a success and to justify
the claims of the league.
"I can state^ positively lor the in
dustrial commission that the E'anlc of

as a political institution. To inject
politics into its management and op
eration would be the surest way to
kill the bank, to disrupt the league
and to ruin the credit of North Da

we're going to use the. best material
we can get."
