The indict bent by a federal grand jury of a bunch of Arizo na's Jeading citizens for conspiracy to deprive oth er citizens of their constitutional rights is a hope ful sign. It so happens tWt these leading citizens of Ari zona'are managers, superintendents and other of ficials of mining properties owned by absentee landlords of the east, together with city and coun ty officials and business men who helped run the mining country for the benefit of the absentee owners—like some of their ilk ran the Colorado mining country for the Rockefellers. What the high-broW rowdies did was to forci bly deport about 1200 citizens of Arizona from Bis bee because these citizens happened to be union miners. Now Uncle Sam, through his Department of Justice, has stepped in, and the leading citizens who have took the law into their own hands will have to stand trial like other criminals with less wealth! and influence. The effect of this action by the government Will be wholesome, even though the indicted-men have pull enough in Arizona to escape conviction for they can't prevent the truth about thier out rage coming out in court and getting to the peo ple of he United States. And when the people know the truth about the feudal" practices of some of our mining barons, Uncle, Sam will put s^op tp it. There is some hope that eventually even West Virginia, Colorado and Michigan may be come civilized. '--J& If it's all right to retire generals on account of age, what's wrong with retiring senators be cause of senility We are still pestered with patriots who think everything England does is all right and every thing we do is wrong. By the way, isn't it about time for the Federal Trade Commission to call Heney back to finish that job on the food hogs? We'll gamble a big red apple that if we fill his belly in advance with fatted calf T. R. would al most agree to be a prodigal son. Uncle Sam, everybody but those who don't want to pay them, would like to know this year what next year's taxes will be. Don't allow glowing reports of a big wheat crop to halt your garden work. They "over there" will need all the wheat we can spare. All a broken down auto needs is a new chassis anew engine, anew body, new wiring, anew mag neto, anew carburetor and new tires. Which re minds us of the excess profits tax law. WITH THE: EDITORS UP TO THE VOTERS. The voters will have an opportunity to decide at the approaching primary election whether So cialism is to be permitted to continue its masquer ade under, the cloak of Republicanism, and to impose on the state, a rule of despotism as com plete as any that has ever existed, or whether there will be selected a Republican ticket composed of persons who, if elected, will be servants first and last of the state itself, and not of a small clique of politicians who have assumed the right to direct the affairs of the people according to their own notions. The people of the state are pretty well ac quainted with John Steen. They know him to be a clean and independent man. They know that if he is elected governor he will be governor in fact as well as in name. They know that they need fear, in his case, no such dismal disappoint ment as they have experienced in the case of the present titular governor. the people who are associated with Mr. on the tipket are likewise cai r*""'— $6.00 ible, jifld xe£- pectable, in most cases well known, and in every case thoroughly committed to the policy of sane progress in the management of the affairs of the state. In the Seventh legislative district the repub licans will have an opportunity to send to the leg islature a man of broad knowledge and tested abil ity. Mr. Burtness is well known in every section of the county, and he is known everywhere as a man of forceful character and independent judg ment. If he goes to the legislature he will go as a public servant committed to no interest but that of the people, and' subject to no domination but his conviction of the needs and desires of the people. No secret caucus will tie the hands or deliver the vote of Mr. Burtness.—Grand Forks Herald. WILDCAT STATECRAFT. The Kensal Progress, a Nonpartisan league pa per, is having a change of heart, so far as the editor is concerned. We publish Mr. Wasson's statement in this issue of the Times-Record. In his article he makes it very plain that he will not stand for the disloyalty that has been so rampant among the socialist league organizers and .he is going to repudiate the bunch until such time as the league purges itself of the stigma. That is the whole thing in a nutshell. People generally believe in the aims of the league as a whole, but they will not stand for the disloyal attitude of its organizers, nor the blue sky proposition to amend the constitution as outlined in House Bill 44 to give unscrupulous men a chance to loot the state treasury and plunge the state in debt through wildcat business methods. Mr. Wasson is not alone in his attitude. Others are doing the same thing.—Valley City Times-Record. SAFE AND SANE MEN. The candidacies of George Sorber and Orman zo A. Brown for the State legislature is meeting with almost universal approval of the voters of Stark county. Both are men of sound judgment favoring a safe and sane administration of the state's affairs. Although members and support ers of the Nonpartisan league, these men do not believe in Townley, but rather advocate that the farmers of North Dakota run their own league without Socialistic and I. W. W. influence. They are of the opinion that the present critical war times do Qd^'.'^rrant'tttestirrin^lip 6f class hat red, man against' nVlH'' employe' against employer, farmer against merchant. We are all working to win the war, fighting to the last ditch, if neces sary, for democracy. Tfus^s^no time to fight among ourselves. The need of all of the people of North Dakota are identical, whether they are merchants, farmers, lawyers or bankers. What benefits one, benefits all. It is true We must co operate to resist the war profiteer, the grain and food gambler, the eastern city shark who pro fits on something he did not produce—something which nevef caused any $weAt oifhis brow. We all want terminal elevatirs, w\ w0t rural credits, we want siatehlil usui*anoe, ive, want packing plants—but wnwl w*get them"we want them to benefit the people who have paid for them— not some Socialist schemer who has never pro duced a real, hard-earned dollar in his life.—Dick inson Press. WORK OR FIGHT. "Work or fight" is the oder to every American of draft age. These are the alternative duties that, confront not only young men between twen ty-one and thirty, but every mother's son and daughter of us. They are really variants of one supreme duty, for working is fighting, and fight ing is only one form of war work, though perhaps the most arduous and certainly the most danger ous. The order of Provost Marshal General Crowder is fresh reminder that, when the Nation is at war, when our institutions, our freedom, our very civilization are at stake, every individual in the Nation must bear his share of the burden, must strive to the utmost and in the most effect ive way to help win the war. The purpose, of course, is to hasten along the flow of labor into the war industries. This flow has been going on naturally and steadily, but it is not rapid enough. There has been talk of the conscription of labor to man the vital war indus tries. But the difficulties in the way of this are tremendous. So the Government now says to the young man of draft age who is engaged in any of certain oc cupations deemed non-essential: "Take a job in the service, or in a war industry." It is not to be hastily inferred that there is here involved any necessary condemnation of the occupations now listed as non-essential. Gamblers racetrack men, bucketshop employes and fprtune tellers are, of course, getting a living by worse than useless methods, whether in peace or war. But store clerks, theatre employes, waiters, el evator men, hotel and house servants are earning honest livelihoods in useful occupations. There is no reflection upon them in the order to get into some wbrk more directly helpful to the prosecu tion of the war. They are doing work that can well be performed by women or by older men in capacitated for war labor—that is all. But for the idler, whether rich or poor, there is no excuse. Several States have already enacted laws compellink him to go to work, and the Crow der order will make the policy nation-wide for all those of draft age. There must be no drones in the American hive. Work or fight! After all, is not that an in spiringjslogan?—Minneapolis Journal. BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE PEOPLE'S FORUM David in the Tiger's Dep. Parshall, N. D., May 29 1918. Editor Tribune, Bihmarck, N. D., Dear Sir: I think Editor Larin ought to have a "dig." I am enclos ing one, .which if you think suitable you may print. "Decoration day exercises in Krogen hall this aft rnoon." I am^enciosing here also an eight word announcement clipped from an inconspicuous place in his paper this week, the only word of announcement concerning the Decoration Day exer cises. These things look a little bit Hunnish to me, and I have been won dering whether there, is not some way to bring him to himself. Dave was an old friendv of'ihlfie,'and it grieved me to the core to see him slop over into this hellish iBo'lsheyike propogan da. V^ry respectfully, E. Pluribus Unum. Here's the Dig. Parshall. N. D., May 29, 1918. Flags flutter from every business place in Parshall—«xcept the build ing that houses the United States postoffice and the Parshall (Non partisan) Leader. Oh yes, David is also United States Commissioner! Yes, between forty and fifty business men are proud to float OLD GLORY above their places of business, but the office of U. S. Commissioner, and the U. S. postoffice, and the home of the Townley-kept Parshall Leader —three in one— that building, flag less, stands here in Parshall as a mon ument to Bos$ Townley's influence and whip hand over poor old Dave. We pity him. That big educational propaganda fund" hasj^sb dazzled the moth's eyes that it ha* forgot it ever had a country and a flag. If it can only bask itBelf in the heart of that "fund" the poor worm-to-be thinks It will forever be happy. I MANDANNEWS I New Men to Register.
