in thetfollowing statement how ex-:
pensivea, task it is to pay the;,men
"hig ;wages' -:
"It mrest alil to hold its skiile'

possible :oiianges. It therefore ,pays
the highest: wages and gives the

Thi'ty per cent of the workers -in
the Amseriean Woolen mills receive
less tlan,.$25 a week, and the great

profits of the company were $15,.
.0.00,000 in 1919. The company now
has a surplus Qof-$1,754;432.. Since
the war began it has earned as much
as. ,the total par value of its ample
capital stock. After deducting the
dividends on preferred from its
1919 profits, the.cpmpany .till had
enough to have paid more. than 50
per cent dividends on its common.
Keeping up this pace is expensive,
But,-Wood declares t .. could ha .'e
beep done, if the goVernment had not
indicted him for profiteerilg.g On
M.ay 26. The government, he. says,
"'should have reciprocal duties in
pirtection of this American indus

$2,000,000 odf., taxes, during one
year. However, the .tri~l proceedpd,

Accordingly, rathery-than commit
"'fingncial suicide,"., Wod shut down
his mills. The loss of orders and of
t'wo months' productidn, were there,
by.;hifted on to the public in the
cost of its winter and spring clothes.
tWood, as a good Anierican business

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

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

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
"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
