ANDREW BONRR IA PASSES G2ND BIRTHDAY (By United Presse) LonDdon, Sept. 17.-Andibw Bonar Law, qon.servative leader, and virtu ally assistant premier to Lloyd George, celebrated his 62d birthday yesterday, and was the recipient of hearty cQngratulations from all par ties. Born in New Brunswick, Can ada. Bonar Law did not enter Brit ish politics until 1900, but so quick ly did he mtake his mark that when Arthur James Balfouir resigned the leadership of. the conservative and unionist parties 10 years later, he was selected for the post, which he has held ever since, CONGRESSMAN EVANS (Continued from Page One.) • ,, oh pared to put into effect the various forns of. sttle ,socialism with which the .league. is. pow e pcerimentiag., State banks, which. will keep the noney at lIbone instead, of sending It off into reumote cities; state ele .vators where grain will be. graded finder the, upper.si'on of the state anl which will do away forever ,wlth.. the '. practice of "knocking down" grades; state packing estab lishments. antid state flouring mills tire some of the objectives of the NNpnpartisan novement. Oie of the visitors on Governor Cok's train was Representative John M. ,Evans ,of Missoula, one of Mon talln's two rvipresentatives In the lower branch of congress. He has always been a democrat, and no mani stanids' higher il the national law-making body. He has. risen in ;nfluence ,steadily and is, now one of the leading sembers of the house committee on appropriatiolns. He is one of the nunerous vie-. tins of the Nonpartisan League, whose political remains are strewn thickly in the northwgst. Notwith standing ,he is a hard, two-fisted fighter, and his fights always have been on behalf ,of the under dog, the Monpartisimn League brought out' a candidate against hihn and he was slaughtered ,at the prhuary. The average . man, after fightingi so long, with so much self-sacrifice for the under dog, :would be resent ful if the under dog should turn suddenly and bite him, but Judge Evans does not belong to that type. He told Governor Cox that there is 'not a sore spot on hinm. ,."Naturally," said Judge E-, ans to some of the newspaper correspondents, "I might be ex peeted to ,feel resentful t4owirl the Nonpartisan Leaguetld who have put sHe out of congress, but I do not. On the contrary, I believe they are everlastJingly right in carrying on this move ment and that there is ab1un 'dant Justification for the exist ence of the Nonpartisan League. "Persons who live ;Jn the eastcrn states have 'no conception at all of the hardships the farmers and Ia bopers of this section endure. Three successive wheat crops have been. tailures. Tils year the farmers raised a little wheat. When the, farmer takes his wheat to the ele vator he has to accept whatever pay tile, elevator man gives lhim. The elevator man quite likely, will guade his wheat as No. 4 when both tihe farmer and the elevator mnan know that it really grades No. 2. Tile farmer and his fmaldly have to live and they must have flour or 'they will stsrve. After selling his wheat for say ;$2 a bushel, he turns ir.ght 'around and buys some flour for which the elevator matn charges him: at a rate, that, would be equivalent to $8 a bushel for wheat., "Or ht may have 'a few hides for sale. He takes them to town and it he is lucky ihe gets $4 a hide for a good. cattle hide. He turnts around to buy a isuch-needped pair of slhqes and learns that he 'nust pay $1) or $10. When he protests he is coolly informed that the reason why. shoos cost so much is the high price' of hides. Can you beat it? "Or, to cite another example, we raise' a good deal of wool in our state. The farmer will take to town for sale enough wool to make a good woolen suit of clothes and I probably, will, get $9 for it. ,Aleing in need of clothes lie will step iito ia clothing .stot're an~ tiltll ?f the lowest pricQ.
