Wheeler charges that Kelly has c "sought occasion to vent his Aspeean" because he (Kelly) was fined $800 in a the federal court for alleged jury t corruption, in which case Wheeler had h prosecuted Kelly at the direction of la the court. The letter continues: "The I. W. W. organization did herald or call the present strike in ts Butte. They were encouraged to do tl so by the paid agents of your com- C pany. These paid agents are high in w the counsel of the I. . W. W. local union. These paid agents of the Ana conda Copper Mining company serve and are serving upon the propaganda ot committee of this I.

"Sunny Jim," the efficient County Auditor, has not sent in copy as in vited to explain his transactions with Peter Westerlund and the Dagmar farmers in reference to that chapter of the seed grain flim-fiam. It is reported that he is now busy preparing an annual statement of the Plentywood Oil Company, in or der to let the stockholders of that de funct company know what became of the mazuma. This report will be very interesting to the "lunacy League" for they are glad to - know that there was some money grabbed in the community that did not go in to the pocketq of A. C. Town~ly or to swell the campaign funds ocf the Nonpartisan League, and wae. ca4 as sert without danger of disputei that none of the above money 'was 'used r'm ything but "loyal" purIposs.

" The county had security on about - $5,000 worth of property for $81.00. And the seed grain, 25 bushels of r wheat, was to cost $81.00. If you can r figure, you will see that our "Effi cient County Auditor" tried to I gouge this poor farmer out of just $.24"per iushel for his seed wheat. Maybe "Sunny Jim" can explain this, to the satisfaction of the farm ers, and if he can, no doubt he will send his deputy "Surveyor of Weights and Measures," his man, "Friday" Chapman, chairman of the membership committee of. the ."I4ina vy Lepgue" around the county aL,the expense. of ten cents per mile and other perquisites, explaining it to them privately. This wduld be cheap for USunny Jim" even if it were expensive for the taxpayers, and we understand that he is doing something like that even now. Just think of it! Three dollars and wenty-four centts per bushel for seed wheat. That's what this member of the "Sheridan County Loyalty League," "Lunacy League," or "what you call it," seems to have tried to sting this patriotic farmer for.

"Politics is adjourned," declares the president, but it is becoming increas ingly apparent that politics have been pushed aside only by these who are not politicians. The special iI terests and their henchmen in both ' old parties are making the national beehive buzz with political excite ment. The old-guard Republicans, opposed to all government regula tion of war profits and government ownership, are working night and day to send more Republicans to congress this fall, because, as they declare, President Wilson needs "their sup port." The fact that they oppose his fundamental policies is a very minor consideration. The big con cealed issue is that old-guard rein forcements at Washington, whether Republican or Democratic, this fall will mean low taxes on war profits, curtailment of war regulations and the handing back of the railroads ana ships to private monopolies. The in terests are trying to put them over everywhere in the United States on the flim-flam of "support to the president" and vaudeville loyalty. SENATOR EXPOSES PLAN. But the big flim-flam will be staged for 1920. Here is the way Senator William E: Borah, who was recently indorsed for re-election by the Nonpartisan league in Idaho pri maries, has sized up the big inter est plans. The war will probably be over at that time. Democrats will run on the fact that Wilson won the war and the Republican med by third-term Roosevelt, will appeal for votes on the boast that their crowd made Wilson win the war. Every ef fort will be. made to make the cam paign one of personalities and to dodge the big issues of America's place in international relations, de mobilization of tfoops and munition workers; market ,rform, public own ership of utilis and basic indus tries. If they appear to be failing in these old circus tricks, the conven. tional party lea.ers will make their puppets ballyho on some vital is sues until they can get into ofiee. There are two big forces, however, that threaten the forecast of the In-' surgezt senaator: The farmers' Non parti league in the West and the (Continued on Page Three) FARMER'S AUTO CRASHES INTO CITY STREET LIGHT Late Monday night Harry God frey, a farmer who resides about six [9 miles east of the city, was preparing to go home and it is said that he lost a control of the steering wheel of his s auto and crashed into the city street is light post located in front or near the ic Gold Dollar Bar, breaking the light I off at its base and smashing it com pletely.
