GRAIN GAMBLER THREATS
Threats by the Chicago Board of
Trade, made before the Illinois leg
islature recently, that it would take
its business to Minneapolis or Winni
peg, were repeated here when the
house passed the Tincher bill by a
vote of 269 to 69.
The press which owes first al
legiance to the gram combine is
everywhere attacking this bill, conse
quently it is important to note that
the clause most complained of is that
which gives the secretary of agricul
ture power to admit co-operative
farmer organizations to membership
in grain exchanges.
Grain men declare that this would
make handling of grain on commission
practically impossible. Bu what they
mean is that co-operative organiza
Ipns could save the farmer so much in
.his hitherto closed shop business that
they would in time have most of. the
Aside from this provision it would
appear that the grain combine has lit
tle to fear, because the bill makes the
secretary of agriculture the king pin
in regulating the exchanges and he in
turn is entirely responsible to a presi
dent who not only owes his position to
great business interests but believes
in them thoroughly.
His refusal to alter the federal grain
grades would indicate the way the
wind is blowing.
The senate has not yet acted on the
Tincher bill, and the grain interests,
with the press and with the natural
inclinations of most of the senators,
may secure considerable alterations in
A N ANTI-ARGUMENT
One of the arguments most heard
here against regulating the grain ex
changes is that the farmers are mere
agitators who do not know what is
good for them. An the chief proof
of this point is that the farmers used
to agitate against the Minnesota
grades, and then when they got the
federal grades they found these worse
than the old grades.
Whereas the federal grades were
merely a political trick to head off
demand for grading according to mill
ing values. They were of, for and by
the grain interests. N real, bona fide
farmer of the Northwest ever advo
cated them or approved them.
Hopes should not run high among
farmers over the vote of 269 to 69 in
the house. Th farmers do not have
that many friends or near friends
there. It looks rather like an attempt
to get on record for progress when
there is assurance that somewhere up
stairs the progress will come to grief.

Valley City, N D., showing how
good the bonds of his home state

City publications. And within two
hours Wall street was making a noise
that was heard in Washingtonover
hot long distance wires.
The yell was not against anything
in the statement, because every big
kanker knows that it was correct, but
against violation of a statute passed
by congress in 1789 and approved by
the then president, George Washing

in or pushing che sale of any private,
state or national bonds. There was a
serious consultation by the leading
men of the treasury department im

White had not been in office long
enough to investigate as far back as

The amendment reads as follows:
"That the president is authorized
and requested to invite the govern

send representatives to a conference
which shall be charged with the duty
of promptly entering into an under
standing or agreement by which the
naval expenditures and building pro

wit, the United States, Great Britain
and Japan, shall be substantially re
duced annually during the next five
years to such an extent and upon such
terms as may be agreed upon, which
understanding or agreement is to be
reported to the respective govern

The measure will now go to the

The willingness of the senate to give
this amendment unanimous approval
may be due to the desire of the reac
tionaries to get the bill which it
amends through as quickly as possible
and to get on record for the popular
issue of disarmament.
A disarmament conference could
hardly get into action within six
months of the approval of such a con
ference, and any action would then be
postponed considerably into the fu

that the laws regulating election cor

says that if the laws do not go that
far, they ought to be amended at once,
but all efforts in that direction seem
to die in hostile committees.
"What is true," says Schall, "of the
senate is true in a more sinister sense
in the case of the presidency. It is
perfectly clear to thinking men and
women that the national conventions
of the two major parties are now be

Ex-President Taft appears to be the
man most prominently suggested for
the chief justiceship of the supreme

is about as near the truth as opinions

can see merit in nothing that is not
reactionary. When he ran for re

own making he carried Utah and Ver

to write many articles against the
farmers of North Dakota.
