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.

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;

CONTROL SURRENDERED
By PARKER ANDERSON in the Hogeland Herald
If the 22nd General Assembly had disfranchised
the entire population of rural Montana the vic
tory of Chambers of Commerce, small town Com
mercial clubs and the civic clubs in the referendum
of May 5 couldn't have been more complete.
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.

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.

and best wishes, 1 am,

Upton Sinclair has written as

"Governor James Rolph,

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

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

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

A jury gave Hemes judgment for
$1296.90 actual and $275 punitive
damages and McCann appealed.

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

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

malicious actions of this sort. It's a

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.
Cloud vs. Scott
The next case called was the
