WHAT FARMERS "DON'T THINK"
AS WRITTEN BY NON-MEMBER OF THE NONPARTISAN LEAGUE CLOVERDALE RANCH Sam E. Button, Prop. Strawberries and Fruits a Specialty Larchwood, Aug. 31, 1919. Editor Montana Nonpartisan, Great Falls, Mont. Dear Editor: A friend of mine who is a member of the N. P. L. handed me a copy of your paper the other day and in it I noted your request that members write you "what they think". I wonder if you and your readers might be interested in what some of the non-members do NOT think? Of course you know that a farmer is not supposed to THINK. Therefore: We do NOT thing the last sesion of our legislative body accom plished much material benefit for the drought stricken farmer. We do not think the Loyalty (?) Legion dope will declare a large dividend. We do not thing the farmer's taxes should be very high if only paid on his net income, as the mines of this State does. We do not think the progressive minority will be the minority in the next year. We do not think the masses are satisfied with the Townley deci sion. We do not think the Butte Miner and the Helena Independent are more than echoes. We do not think it was anything more than playing to the galler ies when Landstrum, Evans, Walsh and others spread their salve on the primary question AFTER the fight was won by the farmers. We do not think it will be long before the farmers and laboring men and women join forces. We do not think the day is far distant when we will think; and when we do think, the OLD GANG will then think that we have been thinking that the NONPARTISAN LEAGUE is not so bad after all. It does not require a great amount of thinking to make a man wonder what new name the old gang is going to call the progressive farmer now that we are sofamiliar with the terms, pro-German, so eialist, bolshevist, anarchist, seditionist, disloyalist, ad infinitum. Maybe it will be COGITATORS. Meditatinrly yours, SASE. BUTTON. McGLYNN AND ARNOLD ADDRESS BIG CROWDS AT NASHUA PICNIC Leag.e Program Discussed by McGlynn while Arnold tells of the recent Speoial ISeuion. The picnic at Nashua Saturday, Aug. 30 was a decided success from every standpoint. A beautiful day made it possible for all those who de sired to do so, to take advantage of the program arranged by the Nonpar tisan League of Nashua precinct for their education and entertainment, and the fact that about 500 persons availed themselves of this opportunity STAMPING OUT THE PROFITEER IN NORTH DAKOTA A7 /J./ . I, v The people of Montana would stamp out the profiteer just as quiekly as North Dakota did but the Lords of creation constituting the last legislature DARED NOT LET THE PEOPLE VOTE ON THE DASTARDLY LAWS THEY PASSED. No, indeed, they attached an "emergency" clause to the law killing the primary TO PREVENT THE PEOPLE VOTING ON IT. But a better day is dawning, and the short-sighted microbes who took away from the people the right they had secured by popular vote-the right of an open primary, will get a rebuke the next time the people of Montana go to the polls whi .h will last them a lifetime. to hear the program of the Nonprti san League discussed and explained in a clear, sane and logical way (one of the things the kept press always fail to do in their tirades against the League) attests the fact that the far mers and small business men are be coming alive to their mutual interests and have decided to have a hand in shaping the destinies of their state at the 1920 election. Great Interest Shown Mr. McGlynn was the first speak er and in his calm, forceful manner, went to the heart of the subject in hand with a statement of what the farmers want, must have and how they propose to get it, and although there had been some delay in getting the addresses under way and the pa tience of the audience, perhaps rather strained, yet from the moment Mr. McGlynn was introduced to the close of his address, the rapt attention which settled over the audience show ed most plainly that they were there for a higher and more serious purpose than just amusement. Old Iron Sides Following Mr. McGlynn, Hon. R C. Arnold, who might well be given the appelation of "Old Iron Sides " owing to his fighting qualities and his abil ity to withstand the most concentrat edfire of copper minions at Helena in his inimitable Arnold way, told his audience of the practical joke perpe trated upon the people of Montana un der the guise of a special session of the legislature for the relief of the drought stricken farmers. The fight made by the Leaguers to secure some real legislation to that end and how it failed miserably owing to the fail ure of three of the Leaguers to under stand the significance of that great motto "WE'LL STICK" and leaving the legislative hall before the session had adjourned, which action was tak en advantage of by the enemies of the League to kill any chance o! League success. The last speaker, Mr. J. W. Haydon, a member of the school board of Dist. No. 13, in a short address made pub lic a serious condition which exists in the official and financial condition of said board. The consensus of opinion A. C. Townley Stands Just Where Lincoln Would Stand IIathaway, Mont., Aug. 22, 1919. Editor, Montana Nonpartisan, In reply to "what Your Opinion Is" may say that we have the old gang on the run and on the live rollers and we will land them in the scrap pile in 1920. There is an end to all things; the time came when the Lord said it was time to free the black man, and he was set free by Lincoln. The time has come for the farmer to be set free and Townley stands just where Lincoln would stand if he were alive today. Every farmer and laboring man should see to it that Townley I gets fair play. when the battle is over next fall. In my opinion he is the greatest man of the day and no man can say anything about him to me without getting my reply. A banker said to me, he thought the farmers ought to be organ ized, but he did not like the men at the head of the organization and I told him that he could take a fine comb and ralCe hell over and he could not find a bunch like those at the head of the Montana Loyalty League. He said he had to go. They don't slip nothing on me. GEEO. H. EVANS. FRUIT RAISERS! FARMERS! Do you know that thousands of people want your fruit but the retail price is prohibitive?

Great credit is due the business men of Nashua who by their gen erosity and co-operation did much to make the picnic the huge sue- t cess it was. Special mention is necessary of the excellent enter. tainment provided by Captain Jimmisan's splendid orchestra, which dispensed such pleasing music at intervals during the day. Mr. McGlynn was busy after the meeting signing up new mem bers and re-enrolling old ones. Grand Forks American-J. A. 1 Hughlett and son of Lothar, Mont., were in Grand Forks yesterday on - their way to Memphis, Tenn., where they will visit relatives. The trip is being made by automobile, and will be by way of St. Louis. He called at the office of the American to renew his subscription. Mr. Hughlett is one of the many farmers of Montana who were dried out this year. He lost his entire crop, as did all his neighbors. He said that the entire Montana crop was a failure this year, on account of the drought. "The farmers will stick with Mon tana," he said. "The land is good there, and I'11 be back in the spring.
