SMITH SURVEYOR and CIVIL EN GINEER Close Attention Given to Ir rigation Work. Ohinook, Montana i I AN APPEAL TO THE REAL PRO DUCERS AND CONSUMERS OF AMERICA. -o There is rapidly developing in this country, under the guidance of the American Society of Equity, a plan of co-operation and controlled marketing among the farmers and members of organized labor, that will revolutionize present methods of marketing farm products and forever remove from the control of speculators and market ma nipulators the power to set prices on the products of the farm and work shops. At the last convention of the Amer ican Federation of Labor held in Min neapolis an agreement was reached between two of the largest industrial forces in America today, namely, the American Society of Equity and the American Federation of Labor. The strongest link binding this movement together is an agreement that both shall, when possible, buy union prod ucts bearing the union label. The farmer will insist on all he buys, from his hat to his plow, bearing the union label. In return, the union men in our industrial centers-cities, town an villiages-will insist upon the union la bel on all farm products and will pa tronize those who handle it. It can be seen at a glance what a tower of strength this will be to both classes. For weeks the officers of the Ameri can Society of Equity have been in conference with the officers of the Ch' cago Federation of Labor for the pur pose of evolving a plan for controlling the market in the interests of both and eliminating the Stock Gambler and Jobber who have been robbing both the farmer and the mechanic for years. Out of the many conferences held, we are glad to say that a Stock Com pany was formed. The shares are to sell at five dollars each, fully paid up and non-assessable, no share holder to be allowed to hold more than five shares, and to have but one vote. At the last meeting of the Chicago Federation of Labor, Mar:h 3, the con stitution and by-laws off the company were tunanimeusly adopted. This is a step forward in the right direction and from present indications, it will not be many days until other cities throughout the country will be taking like action. The name of the company is the Equity Producers and Consumers Ex change of Chicago. Its objects are: First.-To establish practical meth ods of bringing the products of the farm within the reach of the consum ers and thus establish relations which will weld the producers and consum ers into one solid body for their mu tual protection and advancement. Second. To assist the organized pro ducers to get equitable prices for their products, thereby making them better customers for the products of labor as turned out by the union laborers. Third. To assist the legitimate deal ers, the actual distributors, to receive an equitable compensation for their la bor and investment and yet protect the LAND FRAUDS TO BE INVESTIGATED Washington, D. C., March 28.---Ow ing to the importance and volume of business in the west, the department of justice has organized a corps of special assistant attorneys general for the work in connection with coal, timber and land frauds and offenses west of the Missouri river, placing Special Assistant Attorney General M. C. Burch in supervisory charge of them. Judge Burch has been in Den ver for some time quietly organizing present and future' operations, and WILL BUILD NEW ELECTRIC LINE SOON Missoula, March 2S.-The committee recently appointed by the Missoula chamber of commerce to determine the feasibility of the plan proposed by John Magee of Hamilton for the formation of a stock company to build an electric road between Missoula and Hamilton has reported favorably, and will be endorsed at the regular meet ing. Hamilton has already subscribed over $7,000 towards the stock, and Mis soula will no doubt go this better some thousands, the rest of the local stock to be taken at Stevensville and other valley towns. People along the proposed line will nearly all gladly give the right of way and eastern capitalists will put up the balance of the funds. The construct4ao and organized producers and consumers from exploitation, graft, and extortion. Fourth. To secure to all producers and consumers a guarantee that their mutual products are, in quality, mea sure, or number, standard and true and the cutcome of due and proper industrial conditions, and to insure these conditicns, organized producers and consumers jointly agree to re cognize and give preference to the products bearing the union label of all allied crafts and organizations. Fifth. To found, promote, establish, and maintain such officers, agencies, warehouses, cold storage plants, e:e vators, and other similar instrument alities as the Board of Directors may, from time to time determine, and con sistent with good business princi:ples as may be necessary to carry out The purposes of co-operation, profit-shiar between the allied producers and co: - sumers as will further their mu i:al interests. The Equity Exchange of Chicago wi hold regular monthly meetings accord ing tocons itution provisions, also the annual meeting for the purpose (if electing officers and directors shall be held at the time and place of the National Convention of the A. S. of E. The above synopsis gives a general plan subject to such modifications as the majority of stockholders may dic tate. A few words as to the value and power of such a system may not be amiss. It places the producer and the consumer very close together get ting out the crooked paths of distri bution and toll gates exacting tribute without giving anything of value in return. It insures a constant force of supply directly under the ccntrol of those most interested in it-those who produce it and those who must have it to sustain their lives. It distributes profits where most needed among the producers-the farmers and among the laboring consumers. It lessens the possibility of speculat ing in our food and clothing supplies, and protects the consumers against exorbitant prices. It also will do more than any other one thing to prevent adulteration and fraud, as practically all supplies pass through these depots so consumers can and will know where and how they are being used and can locate and punish adulterations. It will give farmers an opportunity to haul to market liberally on good roads and in proper season without, as is now the case, demoralizing pric es, as the stuff may be placed in prop er storage until the demand requires it. It makes it unnecessary for the consumers to raise large amounts of money to buy a supply in advance be cause the producers can and will gladly co-operate with them for the added benefits they will receive. It is, in short, an evolution in busi ness methods that will efffectually give to the masses the control of their food and clothing supplies and save them hundreds of millions of dollars annually that now go into the coffers of exploiters, gamblers, and manipu lators. This matter is to be taken up in all the large industrial centers through out the country. under him a strong force of special attorneys has been employed, in cluding S. R. Rush of Omaha, Ernest Knaebel of Denver, F. A. Maynard of Salt Lake, E. J. Long of Durango and H. H. Swartz of Helena. While none of those are specially located at the points named and where they are at present, matters are arranged that they or any of them may be called to any point needing their attention. A special corps of special agents are now doing preliminary work in all territory in the west. equipment will cost nearly $700,000, but the road is confidently expected to be a paying one. If it is built there is no doubt that in the near time after it has proved a success it will be ex tended from Hamilton to Anaconda and Butte. Mike Shaffer, a Frenchman, who has been for years an employe of the Poindexter & Orr live stock company of Beaverhead county, has been missin more than a week, and it is supposed to be dead. He had been on a pro tracted spree and showed symptoms of delirium tremens. He left the ranch house with a lantern to go to the barn, and that was the last that has been seen of him.
