Wilson opened the debate. He had
an hour and twenty minutes in which
to make his arguments and discuss
the campaign issues from the Non
partisan league standpoint, but fully
one hour of that time was rievofed to
a good old southern Democratic rally

the campaign in North Dakota. It

He told of hearing Governor Fiazier
give a speech in Washington at a na
tional educational rural conference,
held in 1918 to discusB war measures.
The intellectual giants of the country
were on the program, he said, and
then, he modestly admitted that he
was one of the speakers, too. It was

and forcefully denied it.
He accused the Republicans of
making a campaign of "maliciousness
and misrepresentation." He said that
if Burtness went to congress, it
wouldn't bring the price of shoes and
clothing down.
In the last ten minutes of his op
ening speech, Wilson made a very
weak defense of the state banking
law and he tried to defend the tax
increase by simply saying that North
Dakota taxes were not increased as
much as in other states.
Burtneas Takes Up Issue.
Mr. Burtness had one hour and
thirty minutes to speak. He plunged
immediately into a discussion of the
issues. He spoke of the fact that we

published, he replied that "it was im

"Answer him," shouted the audi
ence, and Mr. Wilson very feebly said:
"Love and Marriage." a book which
was not included in Mr. Burtness' list.
He accused Burtneas of being un
fair. He said Burtneas had tried to
insult him.
"He has to answer to me personally
for that," he said.
