It's a rare newspaper you can pick up nowadays which does not inform you of new strikes being called or voted on somewhere. Everybody is striking except the poor old Ultimate Goat, who has nev er had sense enough to form a union and goes on trying to be a good citi zen, paying every added extortion meekly and humbly, and bearing all the burden of the world's troubles. Some day the Ultimate Goats may wake up and then we will see a real union, and a real strike. When a group of men threaten to "tie the rail roads up so tight they never will run again," the Ultimate Goats will come right back and quit using the railroads. How would the railroad employees like that? When the landlords raise the rent too high, the Ultimate Goats will go on strike and live in tents until the rents come down.

The Nonpartisan league now has full control of North Dakota, lock, stock and barrel. It is quietly carrying on its organ ization plans in other states from Nebraska to Nevada and Washington. The league capitalizes unsettled conditions, labor agitation .and high cost of living to further its socialistic plans for class control of government in the interest of a privileged few at the expense of the taxpayer. There is no attempt made to lower the cost of living for the consumer but merely to increase profits of the producer by having the state furnish a large part of the business machin ery necessary for handling farm pro ucts. The direct result of its activities will be greatly increased taxation bur dens and multiplied state government overhead expense. The farmers of North Dakota will charge just as much for hogs and just as much for grain in addition to receiving special privileges from the state, not granted to other lines of industry. The public, or downtrodden masses as the league leaders like to call them, will pay just as much for bacon, flour and eggs in North Dakota as elsewhere, and in addition they will dig up the millions in taxes necessary to maintain a class controlled state government. — Other states can afford to tread easy oq this proposition.
