E. S. CAMERON EDITOR AND PUBLISHER OCTOBER 17, 191S. Published on Thursday of each week. Entered as second-class matter at the post office at Wahpeton, X. D.. under act of congress. [SUBSCRIPTION 1.50 :'ER ANNUM Jh S. This paper has enlisted with the government in the cause of America for the period of the war Mr. Cohen of Fargo was in the city Wednesday in the interest of S. J. Doyle's candidacy for Governor. Mr. Coben reports that Mr. Doyle has been talking to from 1000 to 2000 peo plea day. He says that many league members, especially those that are property owners, are beginning to think that^some of tbe things that the League stands for, is not to tbe best interest of the property owner. Many farmers do not want to see the safe guard around the permanent school fund lowered. There is no need to lower it in order to keep the funds in vested, and as long these funds can be invested safely, why relax your vigil ence? Then another thing that prop erty owners are questioning, is the Single Tax amendment. The Single Tax means that all. revenues are de rived from ground or land tax. There is a feeling: that the equitable method of taxation, is an equal rate of taxa tion of a just valuation of all property. When each individual pays taxes on all of his property, then no one is injured. The Debt Limit amendment is anoth er measure that property owners are beginning to study. How careful a man with property must be with his own credit, in order to keep his prop erty. How can we spend a life time in accumulating and guarding our property, and then with our own bal lot give some else power to mortgage it for an unlimited amount. Notwithstanding nil of the slogans put out by the league such as "We will stick" and "We will win," etc. I be lieve that the real safety valve in the coming election, will be the land own erg themselves. 1 can understand how the man who has been playing in hard luck and has lieen unable to accumulate any property, might be induced to follow any leader who claimed to have a panaoca that voiild cure his misfor tunes. Det-anse any change that mijri'.r c.ijini. nuist be for the better. On ti other hand the man who has a competence, becomes conservative. He cannot afford to take unnecessary chaner-s. He is the balance wheel of the nation. When economic conditions confront us, such as we are now approaching I do not believe that a majority of the people of a state like ours can be led estray. In announcing their position, the newspapers that are supporting Mr. Doyle declare they have been con vinced by his fair statement of the issues that his election is the best thing for North Dakota, The fact that the Socialists at the head of the Non partisan league have been revealed as holding close communion with the I. W. W., as shown hy the LeSueur to Haywood letter the fact that an at tempt was made to "put over" an amendment to the state constitution absolutely removing all debt limits under the guise of having proposed a $12,000,000 debt limit the fact that they are paving the way to the single tax and many other Solialist doc trines, has-been responsible for the shift In sentiment and destroyed all party line in the state. The contest is looked upon as a di rect lineup between those who favor Socialism, and those who are against Socialism: those who favor state own ership of all things, as against those who believe in the doctrine of private property rights. Speaking to over 3,000 people in one day, and with crowds ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 every day in the week, S. J. Doyle, Democratic candidate for governor who is receiving the whole hearted support of all parties in the state opposed to Socialism, is making a splendid campaign tour. During the period he has been on the stump, Mr. Doyle has toured the western part of the state, and he is well pleased with the reception ac corded him. Mr. Doyle is opening up new issues to the light of day, and no North Da kotan shold go to the ballot box in S'S-Z-Z''. S'--L tf- November without either hearing him. or reading what he has to say.

Townley has his share tucked away out of sight, and his associates have each received a little package which they are hugging devotedly, looking for more. There is still a little pork to be distributed. To help in this distribution Townley wants Frazier re-elected Governor. Frazier mal a good errand boy. The fact that Townley promised a deputy VOTE FOR make him draft proof if he would go to Kansas and handle the development of the Nonpartisan League there, is well known also that Governor Frazier did later make such appointment, thus planning to draw money from the North Dakota treasury to boost a political organization. The Plain Citizens realize that that kind of management of our government is not exactly what it ought to be, and it is to be expected that they will tire of this public pork game and put the Townley gang into the ditch too. JohnM.Baer Candidate for Re-election CONGRESSMAN FIRST DISTRICT and other lecturers will be present. On Tuesday November 19, the school officers and teacher8 of the county will have a Joint session. The forenoon program for that day will be arranged by the County Superintendent and the program for the afternoon' will be provided by the State Department. The State Department announces that graduates of four year high schools who have not had pedagogy and psychology, will be given certi ficates if they attend this institute and do acceptable work. Big Barn Burned The big barn on the John Ehlers place near Barney was burned down one afternoon last week, with all of its contents. Fortunately there was no live stock in the barn, but there wa8 a new buggy, new set of bob:ed sleds all of his harness and feed. The ]os3 is a big one. Mr. Ehlers was in Wahpeton, last Tuesday, replacing some, of the things lost. He is not certain as to the cause, but thinks it may have been started by the chil dren.

Two girls traveling on a train through Hoosierdom could have learn ed a lesson from a plain little Indiana school teacher, had they been wise enough to do so. They were going on a pleasure trip and determined to have pleasure all the way. On the train they munched candy, read magazines, played rhum and tried in every way they could to attract the attention of two uniformed young men near them— but all in vain. The little school teacher, who was on her way to attend a county insti tute, got on the train at a little country town. Shyly she entered the cur, quiet ly she took a seat across from the two girls, who were rather noisy in their efforts to gain notice, and immediately after she was settled she began to fin ish a beautiful knitted soldier sweater. Industriously she worked—so intent on her work that she noticed no one. But the people noticed her and ap preciated her zeal and the quality of her patriotism. They smiled whenever they passed her seat and proffered her the loan of their papers and books. I And before many miles had been trav eled one of the khaki-clad youths was beside her and the other one opposite. The sweater had been examined, the process of making it explained to the youths, and now they were telling the little teacher camp stories. The two girls giggled and remarked about "some people's tastes," because they didn't understand.—Exchange.

See I Louis Schennum, Standara Oil Agent "There is mo NEW ORDERS FOR ALL PUBLIC EATING HOUSES Food Administration Announces New and Stricter 1' ood Program for Hotels, Restaurants and Boarding Houses, Effective October 21st. Expect Cooperation but Prepared to Make Orders Effective. TO THE PUBLIC: The following is official information prepared at the office of the Federal Food Administration upon instruc tions from the United States Food Administration at Washington and may be relied upon as official. A new program for all public eating places, effective October 21, is an nounced by the United States Food Administration. The new rules apply to all places where cooked food is sold to be eaten on the premises and affect nine million regular or occasional patrons. The new regulations cu-ry into elfeet the recent announcement of the Food Administration that in fulfilling the American promise to the Allies to send them seventeen and a half million tons of food this year the public eating places would be called upon "to undertake In many particulars a mora strict program than last year." The general plan of the Feed Administration with regard to the een duet ef public eating laces has been reduced to twelve definite "General Orders." These twei* rules furnish the specific measures by which the Food Administration plans to earry out, ee far as public eating places are concerned, the announced plan that for next year the American food pre» gram will be a direct reduction in the consumption ef all food, particularly the staples, rather than a series of emergency regulations such as meat. lese and wheatless daye and meals, and the eubstitution of one food for another. Concerning these twelve general orders the Food Administration in a circular to the proprietors of public eating places says, "It has not been deemed advis able or necessary at the present time actually to license the operation of public eating places, but in cases where th patriotic cooperation of such public eating places cannot be secured by other means the United States Food Administration will not hesitate to secure compliance with its orders through its control of the distribution of sugar, fjour and other food supplies. "A FAILURE TO CONFORM TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING ORDER8 WILL BE REGARDED AS A WASTEFUL PRACTICE FORBIDDEN BY SECTION FOUR OF THE FOOD CONTROL ACT OF AUGUST 10, 1917." NEW ORDERS FOR PUBLIC EATING PLACES. These general orders prohibit the serving of any bread that does not contain at least the twenty per cent of wheat flour substitutes, and of this Victory bread no more than two ounces may be served to a patron at one meal if no Victory bread Is served four ounces of other breads, such as corn bread, muffins, Boston brown bread, etc., may be served. Bread served at boarding camps Is excepted as is bread containing at least one half rye flour. No bread is to be served until after the first course is on the table and no bread or toast may be served as a garniture. Bacon is also barred as a garniture and only one meat may be served to a patron At a meal. Included in the definition of meat are beef, mutton, pork and poultry. Not more than a half-ounce of butter is to be served to one person at a meal, and Cheddar (American) cheese is limited to the same amount. "Double" cream is banned. No sugar bowls will be on the tables, a teaspoonfui is the limit for a meal, and then only when asked for. Two pounds is the allowance to be observed for each ninety meals served, including cooking. No waste food may be burned but all must be saved to feed animals or reduce to obtain fats. RELY ON COOPERATION. The Food Administration relies on the hearty cooperation of the vast majority of hotelkeepers and other proprietors of public eating places to observe these regulations voluntarily, but is prepared to use the full force of its power against the few who would interfere with the success of the plan. A paragraph in the circular says: "We know that the majority of men in this class of business will welcome this enforcement on the ground that it protects the patriot from the slacker and gives the honest man who wants to save for the country protection frou the wrongful acts of his unpatriotic competitors." Attention is specially directed towards the conservation of bread and butter, cereals, meats, fats, sugar, coffee, cheese and ice, to fresh vegetables and fruits which should be served when possible, and to unnecessary suppers, teas, luncheons and banquets, which are condemned as "fourth" meals. The Food Administration desires as few fried dishes as possible. Simplified service, with meats and vegetables on one plate instead of In side dishes, and only necessary silverware, and simplification of the menu and the menu card are urged as means of saving not only food, but labor and paper. The general bill of fare .should be abandoned because the great variety of dishes listed makes waste through spoilage. Simple bills for breakfast, luncheon and dinner with limited dishes, changed from day to day for variety, are recommends I. also the use of hors d' oeuvres. vegetable salads, fruits, sea foods, made-over dishes and animal by-products, which save staples and utilize many available foods. The war program discourages the table d'hote meal except when confined to few courses and small variety, as on the Continent. American plan hotels should require guests to wri*« orders, and all menus should be in plain English, actually describing the food. The new regulations affect hotels, restaurants, dining cars, steamships, clubs, and other places where food is sold to be consumed on the premises. In a message to the managers of such establishments the Food Administrator fully explains the food situation with reference to the war, and tells what the people of the United States must do in the way of saving food in order to good the pledge which, authorized by the President, he gave to the Allies at the recent conference of food controllers. MUST PLAN FOR NEXT YEAR. E. F. LADD, Federal Food Administrator. prospect of a proper ending of the war before the cam paign of the Mimmer of 1910/' eays Mr. Hoover. "To attain victory we must place it. France three and a half million fighting men with the greateet mecUanical equipment that hae ever been given to any army. While we expect the position on the western front may be improved, from a military point of view, between now and then, there can be no hope of a consummation of the end that.we must eeeure until another year hae gone by." The Food Administrator points out that this accomplishment In 1919 win save a host of American lives that will have to be sacrifled if the war continues until 1920. To strike the final blow in 1919 means that ne must not only find the men, shipping and equipment for this gigantic army, but our own army, the Allied armies and the civil population of the Allied countries must, in the meantime, have am:le food if theif strength Is to be «we can do all these things," he declares, "and I believe we cau bring this business to an end if ever/ man, woman and child In the United States tests every action every day aad hour by the one touchstone—Does this or that contribute to winning the wafc?" "We must appi eciably decrease our own Imports of food, notably sugar, coffee and tropical fruits," be says, and points out that while our Wheat pro^ ductlon this year a better than last, our production of other cereals Is less, and our resources »re no greater than last year. "However," he says, "it is possible for us to give Europe its vastly Increased requirements and at the same tyne have a margin over the quantity necessary to maintain our own health and strength." The Food Administrator finds we shall apparently have sufficient sugar to take care of the prssent rat* of consumption and to provide for the extra drain of the Allies, and sufficient coffee if wastefulness in brewing the beverage Is eliminated. Of our own products there must be a reduction in consumption and waste of foodstuffs and of meats and fats that is to say, pork, beef, poultry, dairy products aad vegetable-oil products. Stress is laid, however] upon the fact that the Food Administration does not wish curtailment la the use of milk for children. Patriotic proprietor* of public eating-places demaad enforctble rules for their own protection against the slacker in their business. The federal feed Administrators of the various states will enforce these orders Aeaft •Dt sufficiently patriotic to fellow thsas voluntarily.
