LECISLATURE IS iOT
LIKE IT USED TO BE
Nowadays, When Farmer
Visits Bismark, He Is In
vited to Address the Cau
cus. An Intelligent Body.
North Dakota's law-making bodies
and processes have been changed so
completely that one encounters noth
ing familiar at the state capitol just
now but the remnants of the old
gang, according to ex-Senator K. P.
Levang of Adams, Walsh county, who
has just returned from the scenes of
his former experience as a lawmaker,
says the Grand Forks (N. D.) Amer
"They don't treat the ordinary
citizen like they used to," said Mr.
Levang, who is a substantial farmer
and was a member of the lower house
in 1902 and a state senator in 1906.
"In the old days of gang rule, a farm
er who visited the legislature was
hardly noticed. The lawmakers of
those days gave the farmer the im
pression that he was not wanted
meddling in law making; that mak
ing the laws was solely their busi
ness, and that the farmer ought to
bt back home doing his work on the
farm. For a plain citizen to visit
those legislatures was to insure him
self a frosty reception.
Invite arml'lllel' to Cau'cus.
"When I visited the legislature
last week I got the surprise of my
life. It was just like coming home.
I was met and warmly welcomed by
the legislators and invited into the
caucus to take part in the delibera
tions there. When I found myself
in the caucus, I was asked to express
my views and tell that body what
the people of Walsh county wanted.
I made a speech on the needs of my
section and was listened to with
great attention and interest.
"This is the way they are treating
citizens up there now. They are mak
ing everybody feel that this is a real
democracy by taking the citizens in
and making them partners in the
lawmaking. I have never seen a legis
lative body work with such unity,
sincerity and spirit as the present
North Dakota legislature. t felt so
much at home that I hated to leave.
Worth ai Visit to Bismark.
"It will do the farmers throughout
the state good to take a few days off
and go up to see their lawmakers.
They are honestly trying to find out
what the people want and are trying
their best to get it for them. The
more the people visit them and tell
them what they want, the better it
pleases these legislators.
"And believe me, they are going
to accomplish wonders up there this
session. They will do more real bene
ficial work thaf a half dozen former
legislatures have been able to do.
They have magnificent ability and are
the most intelligent body of men I
have seen. They will put through the
compllete Nonpartisan league pro
graln and the results will exceed all
The Pathetic Reactionaries.
"Imagine the old gang legislatures
asking the citizens into their cau
cuses. Such a thing never happened.
I noticed in Bismark, too, that what
is left of the old gang has forgotten
nothing and learned nothing since
1906. The same tricks, the same
t.actics, the same attitude, and the
same bosses are there that one would
have found 20 years ago. They have
not the slightest chance to succeed.
They cut a figure that is almost pa
thetic. They have been so badly
steamed-rolled that they" are prac
tically done for now. They are a very
tame, blue-looking bunch compared
to the airs of importance they used
to put on."
Mr. Levang is a pioneer in this sec
tion. He knew Grand Forks when it
was a little village and when the
Great Northern depot was a little
lumber shack. He visited the Amer
ican before leaving for his farm.
THEN. P, LEAGUE
Twin City Union Men Say
Farmer and Laborer Must
Unite and Fight Together
St. Paul, Jan. 27.---Labor assem
blies of both Minneapolis and St.
Paul, in official session, have adopt
ed resolutions indorsing the National
Nonpartisan league, re-affirming con
dence in the political organization of
the farmers and severely criticizing
efforts of politicians to divide the
farmer-labor contingent in the pres
ent legislature. The resolutions in
timate that it is the sense of the two
conventions that the union labor men
should stick with the league farmers
in the legislature.
Twin City newspapers, which have
been looking for the attempting to
cause a split in the farmer-labor
forces, are rapped. Politicians, who
have tried to make the laboring men
think that their interests with the
farmers are not common, are scored.
The resolutions declare that the
Nonpartisan league farmers have a
cause, in common with the cause of
union labor; that the farmers or
ganized to free both producers and
consumers from the oppression of
profiteers and that farm and city
workers can and must co-operate in
order to bring about economic re
forms which both organizations de

But Better Feeling Now
Prevails, Says Corre
spondent. Some of the
Reasons for Ill Feeling.
American Headquarters in Ger
many, Jan. 27.--To quiet rullmors
evidently in circulation that there is
considerable friction between the
American and French armnlies, some
incidents from which such a feeling
night have arisen are presented. Un
deniably there was some feeling for
a thne on the part of men in the third
army, but it originated front minor
causes and has entirely disappeared
Publication of somne of the inci
dents from which this feeling started
do more than anything else to halt
hlie exaggerated reports. As tlhe
third arniy reached the banks of the
Rhine there was a sudden change ini
orders from the allied high comnlmalnd,.
by which French troops came up and
occupied the southern portion of the
This necessitated much shifting of
American troops, causing several di
visions to march 36 miles farther to
reach the new areas assigned to
them. It also deprived the men of
the Third and Forty-second divisions
of the honor of crossing the Rhine.
Naturally the men were dissatisfied.
as it caused much extra labor and
The French apparently thought the
Americans should enforce the regu
lations which the French themselves
put into effect. For instance, when
a Ftench regiment marched through
Coblenz several French officers cir
culated through the crowds, knock
ing off hats of German civilians as
the colors passed and when the
American anthem was played.
The Americans had promulgated
to regulation regarding civilians re
mioving their hats when the colors
iassed. Some Third army officers
disapplroved of the procedlure.
American soldiers recalled petty
personal incidents in France, such as
overcharging and other inevitable
smnall affairs, and other incidents
cropped out. mostly the outgrowth of
muisunderstanding. But within a
week or two this subsided. There is
little of it now.
MIAY TURN PRIVATE
LAND TO SIOLDIElS
'abtr.Trais Held by Para
sites f6rt Speculation in
Canada May Be Taken by
Winnipeg, Jan. 27.-Plans for the
acquisition of land held for specula
tive purposes will be outlined in leg
islation to be submitted to the Do
minion parliament in the coming ses
sion. The bill will give to the Sol
diers' Settlement board power to
acquire by expropriation or others
lands held in any province. They may
le acquired either directly or through
provincially constituted boards. If
acquired provincially,- the Soldier's
Settlement board will have the first
privilege for a limited time to take
over the lands at cost price, thus
giving soldiers the preference.
Power to expropriate is regarded
as a national outcome of the govern
ment's declared policy to acquire
private lands held from 'production.
Work accomplished so far by the
Soldiers' Settlement board has shown
that there are not sufficient areas
of Dominion lands left to enable a
scheme of soldiers' settlement to be
carried out adequately unless private
lands are acquired.
