CHARLES E TAYLOR. Editor HANS RASMUSSEN. Manager Friday, June 5, 1931. A LESSON IN ECONOMICS From the Bould e r Monitor Real values are established from net earnings Natural resources (that belong to the people be ...... . ,. i tore given away to the trusts) become valuable s _ . . and increase in value, according to the ability of the people to pay the prices exacted by monopo- j i I : listic owners—the trusts. ■ Upon postulated valuations, watered stocks are issued and these stocks must have dividends even though wages must be reduced. The real value of a man who draws a salary of a million dollars a year is based upon his ability to produce and to pay dividends on this watered stock. A natural resource that once belonged to the people is the iron deposits of the Mesabi Range, Minnesota. This deposit was accidentally discover ed 40 years ago. After three years (without wa tered stock of trust ownership) this iron deposit (had a modest value of $420,000 based on Rocke feller's mortgage which he foreclosed for that a mount during the panic of 1893. Eight years after the said foreclosure, Rockefel ler sold this $420,000 property to the United State? Steel corporation for 80 millions. Later this property was given a value of 500 millions on the books of the U. S. Steel corporation. The million-dollar-a-year manager must now pay dividends on this 500 millions, and dividends on all other inflated property valuations belong ing to his employer, the United States Steel Cor poration, or else the said manager is not worth his salary. The economic barometer now indicates that if inflation is legitimate and if managers, in flators and watered stock holders are not over paid, the wage earners must suffer a "legitimate" cut. Orators and editorial writers are still in the habit of referring to our wonderful "natural" re sources, but are reticent in the matter of their marvelous, "guileful" operation. The Northern Pacific Railway company's water Its surplus is To pay dividends on these infla tions, the manager of large salaries and little minds are again attempting' to wreck the little Elkhom branch in Jefferson county. ©d stock aggregates 248 millions. 200 millions. TEACHERS WHO WILL RETURN AND WHERE TH EY WILL SP END SUMMER • Nearly all of the last year's teaching corps will return to the Plentywood school for tiie school year of 1931-1982. At the present time it appears that there "will be only four changes m the staff for next year. This would seem to m - dicate that Plentywood is an at tractive place to teach in and that the teachers appreciate what has been do 'e f.'r hem while here. An additional advantage is gained to the schools when the teaching staff is not dianged too much each jear since the greater familiarity wAh the P H* :* nrd the o tv and thej. system should enable a teacher to do bet .er work. Miss Mabel Nordgren, who has been connected with the Plenty wood schools for the past five years, will not return next year, It is hèr desire to attend school Again and she will probably go to the University of Minnesota for .work toward a degree. We are .sure that the people of Plentywood whose children have been under the direction of Miss Nordgren will apreciate the fine work she lias done while with us. Miss Tronson, who has taught in our fifth and sixth grades for the past two years will go to Car rington, North Dakota, next year. Mr. George M. Elstad has derided not to return for another year and At present he has not made defi-| uite plans for this fad. Miss Eva Rusdahl who has had charge oli our beginners for the past two years w '11 return n> Plentywood, this fall but not as a teacher. Miss; Rusdahl will return as Mrs. G. B. McMillan, the wife of our high school principal. Mr. McMillan will attend the University cf Washington this summer as will Mr. Slagnt. They; made the trip to the coast by auto, starting Sunday.

The timing of the election had the effect of eliminating the farmer vote. He was too busy grubbing in the fields raising more 40c wheat to pay more tax to build more interurban highways, to exercise his privilege as a free citizen of a sovereign state. Some rural precincts were never opened and in others the only vetes cast were those of the judges and clerks. To complete the farce, city voters realizing they were getting something for nothing, rushed to the polls like women to a bargain counter! Delightful task the game of pickpocket when tinseled with the gloss of legal sanction! Even in the smaller towns the vote was light but in the country it was microscopic. This was from a monetary standpoint the most important referendum ever carried in Montana. . , .. , . When the masses wake up tney will find it fraught with tremendous possibilities. Not only have farmers like vassals of a subject state been forced to pay tribute to Caesar, but the effect upon the future political life of the state is ominous. The people and their duly elected representatives in future legislatures have definitely lost all control of tens of millions of highway funds and have concentrated authority in the hands of individuals, namely, future chief executives, for governors ap point the highway commissioners who in turn must do their biddings. Fortunate indeed will the people of Montana be in selecting their governors in the years to come if they do not choose one who will ambitiously use these millions to build for himself a political jug gernaut to flatten out all opposition and entrench himself and henchmen in the seats of the mighty. During a campaign within the past decade the leading dailies of the state heralded the charge that a gubernatorial candidate was using the high way department and indirectly highway funds to encompass his re-election. Then the highway bud get was a mere bagatelle compared with the thir ty, forty or even fifty millions of gas funds to be disbursed within the next ten years. These mill ions will be juicy plums for those who "keep the faith" and should cast the die in favor of any can didate so disposed to use them. Politicians great and small are not heedless of the cohesive power of public plunder and the hind trails best when the scent is strong. What has happened may happen again and the temptation in the future will be greater than in the past. "Wages paid last year were nearly $9,600,000,000 less than in 1929. This loss is nearly a billion dol lars more than all the wages paid about nine mil lion wage earners in factories in 1928, and ap proximately as much as the gross income of 6,300, 000 farmers in 1930. In 1930 dividends and in terests payments were about $8,600,000,000, or •only $1,600,000,000 less than the reduction in wage payments, while 6 % of the people get the major part of these interest and dividend payments. » ing experience, the last two years of which have been at Chester,* Montana.

Uemanded by the I ublic - ( San Francisco, May 14.— Popu-, larity of the growing demand for the pardon and release of Tom Mooney is strongly demonstrated in the daily mail now being receiv ed at Sacramento by Gov. Rolph. There is an ever increasing num -1 ber of unanimously adopted résolu - tions sent in by labor unions and other workers' organizations, all calling for favorable action upon the impending petition for an un - restricted pardon. And in an un ceasing flood come the letters of, protest by individual citizens, with strong appeal for justice to Moon ey. The Governor of Arizona writes thus to Governor Rolph: "We have many people in Ari-; zona who believe that Thomas J. Mooney should be pardoned. I have studied his case a good deal and I have requests from friends of mine to write you in his behalf. "It is useless to go into his case. You know all about it. Because my sympathies have been with Moon-' lay, during the last campaign my ! opponents used it as a campaign issue against my re-election; hence I am impelled to write you. I know you will use your own judgment after carefully reviewing his case. i will appreciate it if your attitude towards his release is favorable. With kindest personal regards and best wishes, 1 am, c; n ' vniir „ n mt d u « n ' Geo. W. P. Hunt,, Governor. Upton Sinclair has written as j follows . "Governor James Rolph, Sacramento, California, My dear Governor Rolph; The Mooney case is a standing sore upon the face of our public life, and a continual source of mis ery to every enlightened person in the state. Once more I appeal to a Governor of California to cor rect this monstrous wrong. Sincerely, Upton Sinclair." (Signed) Numberless other letters carry a similar message to the California Governor, and express such thots as the following: From Arthur Garfield Hays, lawyer, New York City: "A good many of us in the United States who are liberals acquired consid erable hope in the Mooney when you were elected Governor. We trust you will not betray hope." W. M. Ash writes from Los An geles: case our "As a citizen, home owner, tax payer and voter, and as one of the many who wish to see the name of this state cleared of the injustice done in this case .... I am appealing to you, my dear Gov ernor, to save further disgrace to the name of our state by granting an unconditional pardon to Tom Mooney." LARGE ATTENDANCE AT KEOGH FUNERAL SATURDAY The funeral of Donald Keogh 9 son of Mr. and Mrs. Keogh of Outlook, who was killed by an au tomobile on the streets of that town Wednesday evening, occurred at the Catholic church at Outlook Saturday morning. Rev. Fr. O' Rourke of Plentywood officiated. Interment was in the Outlook etery. cem RUSSELL SEES SUCCESS FOR SOVIET PROGRAM — Washington—FP— One of tht most unqualified predictions of triumph for the Soviet Five Year plan as a means of securing to the Russion worker and peasant a high standard of living, ever made by a prominent American, was voiced bv H. L, Russell, former dean of the College of Agriculture at the University of Wisconsin before the International Chamber of Com -1 m erce, meeting in Washington on I May 7. Russell's topic was "Agri culture, the Touchstone of World Depression and Prosperity." He began by describing Soviet Russia's remarkable achievement in modernization of wheat produc tion in the past three years. He quoted American government re -1 ports on the vast extent of the program of mechanized farming j that has been thus far completed, ; and cited the rich natural resourc-, es that the Soviet Union can de vote to this end. "Russia is eagerly utilizing the, very latest of scientific knowledge to enlarge her agricultural possi-1 ■ bilities," he said. "With feverish anxiety she is literally pouring millions into expansion of her uni 1 versitiy research institutes, experi ment stations and breeding farms. Her scientists are combing the earth for new crops and new meth No country in Europe today manifesting more interest and more activity in laying hold of the best science, wherever it may be found." Still hopeful that the American farmers who possess big enough tracts of wheat land, in the west, will be able for years to come to raise some wheat for export, Dr. Russell said that the Russians mi £ht so reduce the market price of this grain, by means of their big machinery, cheap labor and gov ernment-owned lands, as to force American farmers to give up ex porting wheat. This, he said, might prove a blessing in disguise, as did the boll weevil in forcing j the eastern cotton states to take up diversified farming. 1 "Each of us may have his own idea as to what will be Russia's influence on the rest of the world," he said. "We may flout her phil-] 1 osophy of government, we may de ny her recognition in the family of nations, but this economic fact remains. There is certainly no ' area in Europe or for that matter ! in any part of the occupied world, that is fraught with such poten | tialities as to commercial expan si °? as is *° f ' ound , in the land ^ h ^f 1 ? 68 the emblem of the I "J* 1 ®. ®" d A hai , . ! - 1 ? mllho " 1)60 ple .disen thra l led from serfdom, coming up rapidly out; of illiteracy into liter I ? cv ', imbued Wlth a patriotism that 18 al Pl°, 8t fanatical in its fervor, 1 " whlcb nationalism takes the P lace of religion, the future dec ad ! s are su / e to witness a steadily nsin f standard of hying that can r® ot . be satisfied with present con dl *i2, ns * . . , Bussia will buy the good things of hfe with that which she has to „ ^ a "d no nation is uore favor ed with an abundance of natural resource that are as vet relative iv untapped as this Giant of the North.

Supreme Court Affirms Roosevelt County Action Helena.—The supreme court last week affirmed the district court of Roosevelt county in an action brot by Louis Hernes against James A. McCann and his son, Florian, to obtain damages for crops destroy ed by cattle. Hemes, who operates the Dia mond Ranch, southeast of Culbert son, sued McCann and his son Flor iam, asking $1,500 actual and $500 exemplary damages for injury al leged to have been done his crops by McCann's cattle He asserted that Florian cut the fence to let the stock into his field. The Mc Cann's run cattle on land north and east of the Hemess property. A jury gave Hemes judgment for $1296.90 actual and $275 punitive damages and McCann appealed. Confirmation Services Confirmation occurred at the Lutheran church Sunday morning May 31. The church was packed. Rev. O. M. Simundson conducted Helen Stenehjem, Frieda Raess, Lewin Timmerman, Idella Moe, Olive Brenden, Gudrun Gysler, Ellen Stenmark, No!a Jor gensen and Hazel Estes composed the class. the services. Mayor Loses Toe Belt, May 31.— H. W. Miller, owner of Miller's Coal Mine and mayor of Belt, lost one toe and had others crushed late Friday aft ernoon when a jacked-up machine in the mine slipped and fell on his foot. 1,833 Gas Stations Have Been Licensed this Year i Helena, May 20.—Thus far this year there have been 1,883 gaso line station licenses issued by the °ü and gas division of the Mon tan a railroad commission. At this time last year, 1,722 licenses had been issued and C. W. Gross, in charge of the division, estimates the tota J be more than 2,000 iHiis y €ar - i | j Port Arthur, Ont., May 30.— A special train will carry 100 lumber j jacks from this port tomorrow, 1 bound for Russia. The train will travel by the C. N. R. line to the i British Columbia coast, whence the men will embark for their native land. Most of the men are of Finnish extraction. They have been without work here for many ; months and finally made applica tion to the Russian government to allow them to return to that coun ry as they are all experienced j workers i nthe art of logging and pulp cutting. This permision hav j mg been obtained, transportation arrangements were made for the ! journey. ! - WOODS WORKERS ON WAY TO RUSSIAN JOB j owned by outsiders, or over a quar ter . The total assessed value of coun try real estate is $11,251,989 com pared with $288,545 for city and towns. The country improvements total $1,802,293 compared with $1, 136,049 for city and towns. This year the assessments of farm lands was reduced 10 % in 1 the first and second zones but this will be of no benefit to the farm ers if other assessments are also lowered. We note that the rail roads have a reduction of 10% al lowed them by the Equalization Board and other property is very | likely to be also reduced in these j times. While these reductions can be made in assessed valuations there i can be no material benefits or re j ductions in taxes as the levies will ; have to be raised so much more in ! order to raise the funds required for and by our various spending bodies. Our county offices, roads, schools, poor and debts, all make heavy demands foi and if these cannot be kept down^ or re-, • d H oed some * xtent , tb fJ- e ; will be no hopei foranywhen ; It is thought that by reducing the Val^tion of co ™' ty $1,500,000 and becoming a sev ; enthclass county a saving of about | $1500 per year can be made insa - arte* of some officials and depu ties, but this would not be effec tiv© until partly on January 1, 1932 and partly 1933. Therefore, the mot logical thing and the best chance for immedia relief taxation would seem to be TAX TALK (Continued from Front Page) to cut all expenses, all the wa> ar 9? 1 ? d- Small re-adjustments and shifting of the tax burden here and there does not effect much re lief, the total load is still there to be taken care of and paid for. —EDGAR I. SYVERUD, Secretary-treasurer Sher. County Taxpayers Assn, (Continued from First Page) able for cultivation, counterfeit money withdrawn from use be turned back to forestry and per manent pasture. What will it cost? Well 1 think that 100 million acres could be hot back for say $10 an acre — that would be one billion dollars. Lots of money! Sure! But I think it is cheap for permanent prosperity for agriculture which would help the whole nation. ..It's like ■it should be it should Now is it not foolish and finan cial suidde to permit the importa tion of million® of eggs firm China when we produce plenty of good eggs in America; and millions of tons of different oils to make oleo margerine when we produce plenty of good butter fat; reindeer meat when we have plenty of tender mutton and juicy beef, etc? And here is where the trouble is: The go vom ment which is more or less controlled by the money trust, is not friendly to the farmer. When the republican party at last was forced to give farm., relief., they gave the farmers a law without teeth.. And when Legge, to save the bankers, pegged the price far ALL wheat at $1.25 a bushel he knew and everybody else knew, he could not raise or keep the world price. Brazil tried it with coffee, England with rubber, Cuba with sugar, Japan with silk, Canada and Australia with wheat. They all failed and so did Legge for it can't be done. But, if there had been any teeth in the law, like the equalization fee the debenture plan or the Grobe plan, the wheat . orice. for what was consumed., here;., would., have been the world price plus the tar-, iff (42c> and the surplus sold on the world market for what it would bring, that would at least have brought temporary relief. That is the way the International Harvest er Company is doing—selling their, tractors and machinery to the farmer of America at a good stiff price protected by the tariff, and selling their surplus to the Russian farmers for what they can get. Peculiar,isn't it, what is good bus iniess for the I. H. C. is not good for the farmers. All agree that agriculture is the backbone of our country and that no permanent prosperity can dome long as the farmers have no. buying power. All right, here is the plan: Let the government buy enuf of the CULTIVATED land so there will be no surplus of wheat, cotton, tobacco or any other product; place an embargo on all produce we raise enough of and a reasonable tariff m . on Produce we do notra** enough of; let the farm board find out the average prune turn cost, add a teas enable profit, let that be the price nf the produce and the farmers' buying power is established. What will happen? The factories will be gin to hum; there will be no unem ployment; the farmers can buy the gioods the workers produce and the woirkers can buy the food the fjow can that be done? ^ 80VWnineirt ^ control the production and price of farm pro ducts. Immigration has alreadv stopped and if the workers ^ have should oroduoe motre gaods than the and other bu yers ^ and b uy, ^ can't tb © gur pi „ 8 abroad, at least at stop producing it. But I be beve w j ien the people have the money to buy with they can use t he goods made for many years to ^me. But should that time come the government can start work on roads canals and other permanent improvements — because everyone baa a ^ht to |i ve . and a right to ea ^ wben . be wan t s to work, and I believe that it is the duty of the government to give its citizens an opportunity to work. Sudi pub W4M .| C he payed for by all, through taxes and i hope by that time that taxes will come mostly from incomes and not ftrom prop erty. We must always remember that buying power can on ,y be pro duced by work and prosperity only buying power and prices of go,^ an d flood are in harmony, But that is price fixing! Sure! That > s what business bas been do ing alwayg . Automobiles, shoes, clothin g, 8 U gar, coffee, bread, gas, oi , lumber naik . tractors—in fact eveTything _ hMa a fixed price and that price ig the OMt p!us a pro fit with a very little readjustment each year. Business calls it price stabilization but when the farmers farmers produöe. Now we are at the root of the matter: depression and hard times come when wages and the selling price get out of harmony with the buying price. Keep the wages, selling and buying price in tune and there is prospar ity. t to prev ent the price of their products from jumping up and doWTl every day. it is called p,^ fixing, and that is awful. Now if anyone can improve this plan, or have a better one —more simple, sure and practical, let's have it. The country needs it. COURT (Continued from front page) framed up, malicious prosecution on its face. It's a shame that the people's money must be spent on malicious actions of this sort. It's a shame such men can get elected to office. W CHICKEN CASE Following the Taylor case Tues day afternoon a jury was called on the famous Raymond chicken steal ing case, the case of the state of Montana vs. Alvin Clay and Hen ry Olson of Raymond, charged with the theft of some chickens. The case was on appeal fromjus ^ lce court. The defendant were represented by Attorney Paul Babcock. The case was dismissed by Judge Paul upon failure of Bakewell to make a case against the defendants. The county attorney's handling of the case in his usual bungling and in competent manner was very ©in harrasing to the complaining wit n€S - This case cost the county probably about $300. The chickens we re worth from $10 to $20. Criminal Calendar Finished Dismissal of Clay and Olson completed the criminal calendar, Immediately the civil calendar was called. The first case was Sheridan county vs. D. W. and T. C. Kelly, an ejectment action to e J e pt the Kellys from their home w hich the county has taken for taxes. The Kellys or their attor ne >' 8 °* record did not appear w ben the case was called so it was defaulted by the court, Judge El well of Havre presiding. Kelly hav in £ disqualified Judge Paul. Judge Paal called Elwell immediatey. The wr *t cf ejectment was issued and addressed to Sheriff Hans Madsen [directing him to eject the Kelly? from the premises. This is the only case Bakewell has won so far and the lawyers say he would have lost that one too had Kely had an attorney.
