LUNDIN, County Auditor of Lincoln County, State of Idaho. mm nw This Is Made Plain in a Letter From United States Treasurer John Burke, a Member of President Wilson's Official Family— He Says Townley and His Crowd Did * All doubt as to the national Democratic administration's stand with relation to the Non-partisan league has been dissolved by a letter written by United States Treasurer John Burke, one of the members of President Wilson's official family. In this letter Mr. Burke directed himself to the situation in He came out strongly in opposition to the re election of Governor Frazier in that state, for the reason that Frazier is backed by the Socialists and "did not support the ad ministration in the prosecution of the war." Governor Frazier is a candidate of the Non-partisan league in North Dakota and is backed by Townley, Le Seuer and all the : other Non-partisan league leaders. These are the same men who are backing the Non-partisan league candidates in Idaho, and the national admiiystration's condemnation of the Non-partisan league runs to Idaho, therefore, as well as to North Dakota. Mr. Burke expresses himself in a letter to W. E. Byerly, Democratic State Chairman of North Dakota, in which he states the administration's reasons for being opposed to the Non-partisan league candidates. Mr. Burke says, among other things, that Governor Frazier of North Dakota, who took the same position as iiis leader, Townley, president of the league, lined up against the war the same "as does the pacifists, the I. W. W. and Socialists, and asked if everybody had taken the same position, we would have been unable to raise the money necessary to win the war." Mr. Burke's letter in full follows: i North Dakota. Washington. D. C. Hon. W. E. Byerly, Democratic State Central Committee, Far; I My Dear Byerly : N. D. I have your very kind invitation to take part in present political campaign in North Dakota. It would be a very ; great pleasure to accept this Invitation. It would give me an opportunity to meet and enjoy the companionship of my good friends-in North DaLuta an ! at d»e same time to contribute my ef j forts In behalf of democracy and the I election of true and tried men. but I'm afraid I shall not be able. I am going into the southwest iu behalf of the fourth Liberty loan, for four ; weeks and that will be about as much I am not on the ground, hut 1 keep track os well as I can of the political as my physical condition will stand. , . conditions tn North Dakota through j the papers, and 1 have actual personal knowledge of the political record of , your candidate for governor, the Hon orable S. J. Doyle. He was a member of the legislative assembly in 1909 and . ... . . . 1911 sessions which made a record for , , . , the enactment of progressive legisla tion, ail of which received the active _ „ - , t , , . , I support of Mr. Doyle. He introduced and the passage of the non-partisan judiciary; the Initiative and referen dum ; the resolution for the adoption and approval of the amendment to the constitution of the United States, pro tiding for an income tux; he support ed vigorously the anti-pass law; the presidential preference primary; the resolution amending the constitution of the state for the building of termi nal elevators outside the state; the tax ! commission, board of control, and - nmnv other acts of progressive legis latiou. He was the friend and clnim pion of ail progressive legislation and I i the avowed enemy of everything reac tlonary. He was at ail times the rec ognized champion of my administra- | turn on the floor of the house and his i record is absolutely clean and without j blemish. i During each of nty campaigns for j governor he defended my administra- ! tion and progressive legislation with i great ability and eloquence upon the siump. When he was a member of the legislatur# I relied upon him more than ; any other man In the legislature and I know that my confidence in him was , not misplaced. He never deceived me ] , . , , , , . , , . , analytical, logical mind and his ex perienee as a member of the legisla- | and we were in hearty accord in every administrative act. He has a keen. ture and ns a farmer and business man. together with Ills known honesty and sincerity, will make him an ideal executive. These are matters of pub lie record. A reference to the house journal of the 1919 and 1911 sessions. «ill prove or disprove my statements. Knowing Mr. Doyle's' record as I do. it was a great surpise to me to read in the Nonpartisan papers before the primaries and since, that the reac 1 $50 BOND WILL BUY high explosive for 100 3-inch Stokes Trench t Mortars. 2 $50 BONDS WILL BUY trinitrotoluol for one 14-inch shell. 3 $50 BONDS WILL FEED 1 soldier 350 days. 4 $50 BONDS WILL BUY 5000 rifle or machine gun cartridges. 5 $50 BONDS WILL BUY 2 light Browning machine guns. 6 $50 BONDS WILL BUY complete clothes and underclothes, summer and winter, caps and shoes (but not overcoats and slickers) for 5 soldiers. 7 $50 BONDS WILL BUY 5 loaded 155 mm. shells, 1 75 mm. loaded shell, and 1 3-inch loaded shell. 8 $50 BONDS WILL BUY trinitrotoluol priming charge, and propelling charge for 16-inch shell. I tionaries in the Democratic party and Republican party were supporting Doyle. If this statement is true that Ute reactionaries in the two old parties ; have selected Mr. Doyle as a candidate, they will be badly fooled if they elect him believing that he will be a reaction ary governor, The f arme rs of North Dakota have a grievance, but not against the Democratic party as a state organl nation in North Dakota, nor against its candiate for governor. The last legislative assembly passed an ap propriation for the building of a ^ terminal elevator and Governor Fra- . zier veto ,, d the bil) It might be we|1 < for tite farmers of the state to ask why it waa vetBed and j UBderstand that reason was given that a terminal eLe- * vator wouId be of no use wtthout t ¥ packing houses, flour mills, etc., but <ure , y it wouId have beeB a start a beginnin „ 4 ■ A half a loaf is better than no bread. U The world was not made in a day. The *' farmer might also ask if the reasons _,_ „ . ..., .. , given for vetoing the bill were the real ,. reasons or If there are others. Of ., . course if the elevator proved a solu . . „ , ,, tion of the farmers problem, they , , , . .. "' ouId 110 * onger need tb e >™P a rtisan lpague ' same ' vould be true if " a a! urP ' . North Dako,a ls a S rpat cultural ^ and the agricultural interests ' ?ll0nd receive fair treatment, but everything is now subordinated to the " ianin £ °* ^ ie war which we are engaged and in the election of men who will uphold the administration in I » * * » !he Prosecution of the war. Then again, accordln 3 t0 the Nonpartisan papers, when we became involved in the war, Governor Frazier did not support the administration in the prosecution of the war. The Courier-News of Fargo, N. D., published speeches of Mr. Townley and Governor Frazier In which it is re P° r ted tba "- Governor Srazier said; It requires 110 patriotism to buy a Liberty bond. Buying bonds are all right, but tber e is a better v r i c * 1 man s money. ; Conscript the ay. MR. TOWNLEY SPOKE ALONG THE SAME LINE AND AS I UNDER ^ 1 AND. THIS IS A POSITION OF THE PACIFIST, THE I. W. W. AND THE SOCIALIST. Courier-News because it is a Nonparti san paper and of course, would not misrepresent either Mr. Townley or Governor Frazier. If the people had taken the same position as these, we would be unable t0 raisi the money I mention The necessary to win the war. Fortunately, however, the people of this coumry and 1 the people of North Dakota, did not f and do not agree with either Mr. Town- v ley or Governor Frazier on the prose- 1 eutiou of this war, and it is much safer T to elect men who have been with the administration all the way along the line. It seems to me that the one question that a good citizen need ask himself is. "Is Mr. Doyle qualified. Is lie honest and sincere and will lie make good governor if he is ele tedV"
