FEEDING "DEAD ONES.
Walt Mason is a pippin', as a rhymster he is rip pin'—even feeble minds can savvy his snortin', tootin' style; its the simplest sort of writing, its like fishing when they're biting, so I guess I'll feed it to the "dead ones" for a while— There are "dead ones" loudly crowing, "dead ones proudly blowing—"dead ones" who are shrieking their love for Uncle Sam; they refuse to see him through, there is nothing they will do to help him pound the kaiser into jam ; each of these will bust his throat, each of these will glory, ^loat, o'er the victor ies we are winning "over there", but he is "Piker No. 1" unless he's gone and done a lot of licking these War Stamps that are sold most everywhere. There'll be gladness you can bet when Wilhelm's goat we get and the Yankee lads come rampsin', come rempsin' home again, but the boys will want to know how these geezers spent their dough—if their ans wers then are twisted, well, they're in for lots of pain ; if the shekels they have hoarded while the soldier boys have boarded on slum and bull and beans in a cootie-crowded trench, they will hear what Yankees think of each yellow-livered gink and you can notify your neighbors that it won't be said in French! If they're on the square, if they want to do their share, if they're anxious for Old Glory to survive, they will grab the coin they're hiding, they'll go skooting and a sliding to the bank and buy some War Stampf— and then they'll be alive! —Earl Wayland Bowman.

Our bunk house is an old livery barn remodeled. The mess house is a machine shop. They are both very comfortable and well arranged. The eats are very plain but we have all we want. Out of the three days we have been here there have lots of the fellows taken sick. Only five cases of influenza as yet. The men are im mediately moved from the barracks to the hospital. Every day we have to take everything out of the barracks, | clean everything up spick and span,, to prevent all sickness possible. The company of three hundred fel lows here seem to be a tine crowd of boys. W'e have some very fine officers even if they are strict as the deuce, and bawl a fellow out every chance they get. We are quarantined to the barracks for twenty-one days at the least, so there is no running around for us j for some time. ; The army life is no picnic but is good enough for us. We are proud that we are able to pass the exainin- « ations and give our services to tncle Sam. Aery truly yours. Thomas lrauf.

Davis, district manager and organiz er of the Nonpartisan league in charge of the ten northern counties, with headquarters recently opened at Lewiston, is under arrest on a charge of violating the espionage law in La tah county. The warrent for his ar rest was issued by H R. Smith, Unit ed States commissioner, at Moscow, upon a complaint sworn to by L. F. Parsons, chairman of the Latah Coun ty Council of Defense. The arrest was made by a deputy United States Mar sha. > The complaint charges that Davis made these statements: and big business concerns of America met in Berlin and framed this war. You don't have to buy Liberty Bonds. These bonds are nothing but graft. Let those who framed the war buy them. The government is standing in with the banks and you only get four per cent for your money. The banks charge S to 10 per cent for the same money. "The Red Cross is all right, but you don't know if the money goes to the right place." R. W. Rignell. another Non-partisan organizer, is also under arrest upon a warrant issued by Commissioner Smith on complaint of Chairman Par sons. of the County Council of De "Jh* fense. who charges that Bigneil said in Latah county: "There are fourteen men connected with the state food ad ministration of Washington and elev en of them have been hoarding food." On the Liberty Bond drive he is al leged in the complaint to have said: "The Liberty Bond matter is nothing but a profiteering of big business con < erns and of the banks and they are the ones that make the final rake-off." "Most of the Councils of Defense in the state of Washington are backed by big business concerns and the banks." "Capitalists Mr. Parsons said: "For some time the Council of Defense and the depart ment of justice have been at work on these cases. We secured satisfactory evidence that these men who had made these statements and that they were in juring the work of putting the bond drive over. After due consultation with the legal department of the t ounctl of Defense it was decided to make the arreests Davis was held to the l mted states District Court un der bonds of $<.500. which he did no! furnish and is in jail. V FARM MARKETS MANAGER EXPRESSES HIS OPINION Harvey N. Allred, of the Idaho Farm Markets Bureau, Writes Letter and Authorizes Its Use. Harvey N. Allred, manager of the Idaho Farm Markets Bureau, has wrtten the following letter touching upon the present politica situation and authorizes its publication or use in any other manner: Boise. Oct. 18, 1918. Mr. N. P. Hansen, quest for my reasons for opposing the Nonpartisan League and its propagan da. permit me to say first, that those who know me and record as Speaker of the House of Representa tives and State Director of Farm Mar kets, could not be honestly consistent in an effort to construe my criticism of the League and its leadership, indicating opposition to the thousands of honest farmers and laboring men who constitute the great majority of ; the League membership, for they | know too well that I have been ever consistently engaged in their inter ,est; and I challenge them to name a man who has been more active or ac complished more in their behalf, than I have done in the brief period of time it has been my honor and pleasure to serve them in official capacity. I believe that the foundation upon j which I base my opposition to the ! League is undisputed fact, j stated those reasons are: ; First: Its leaders, chief organizers and propagandists are composed of. pro-Germans and the most radical so « cial element obtainable from other states and our own State, selected to further its interests It has attracted to its following, almost without ex dencies' or radfe7l°777>'i German 7"' aencies or radical social persuasion «I?h 1 this* war 0 the* <77,7 SJ ^ pathy i nis " ar — the greatest and most: ever waged for hu "£ 14 dc *?

W. W.'s, So cialists and as such aids to the kaiser, said in part : All Radical Socialist*. "If there be any doubt as to whether or not an effort is being made in this state to establish state socialism in full bloom with one stroke, as it were, one need only investigate the lifelong political affiliation and activities of practically every man who is In charge of any important work of the Non partisan league, or even in public of fice by endorsement of the Towntey machine. The last official record of Townley's political faith, prior to the birth of the Non-partisan league and the death of the Socialist party, is his own registration affidavit signed at Beach. N. D„ on the 11th day of April, 1914. A. E. Bowen, Townley's chief speaker and organizer, was twice can didate for governor on the Socialist ticket. M. E. Elliott at one time pub lished a radical Socialist paper at Mr. Elliott was at one -Most of you will remember that ; SO me years ago there resided in Minot, N.

If we (running th - 1 «- Wi ™n hrimr «hour rliis agreement It'will mean fhe transfer . lng of the balance of power from the state government of North Dakota to 'he Non-partisan league and the I. W. w.' You will remember that a series of meetings held in this state to ratify the agreement on the part of the farm ers resulted in its rejection. Now. if there are any members of the league present I want to ask you if you really! believe that when LeSeuer w-as in Kansas City, trying to put through this agreement, telling the members of the I. W. W. that it meant the traos | fering of the power of the state into their hands, he was really working in Minot, N. D. time state manager for the Non-parti san league in North Dakota, now em ployed at headquarters at St. Paul and his place here turned over to Axel Strum of Williston, another avowed Socialist. partisan league. And so we have the <r chief counsel and executive secretary, radical Socialists. Connection With I. W. W. * the interests of the farmers of North Dakota? Think it over and see if you can reach any such conclusion, ! At Home of "Appeal to Reason." "For many years there was con ! ducted at Girard. Kan., a Socialist I school, where the simon-pure doctrine I of Socialism was supposed to be taught . to the students. And I believe, by the way. that Mr. LeSeuer was a graduo e of that school anil later on a member' of the faculty. The school was under the direction of one Walter Thomas Mills. Mrs. Kate Richards O'Hara, the Socialist lecturer and anti-war propagandist, who was convicted in the federal, court at Bismarck spring for the crime of violating tue espionage law. and who was seutem to serve five years in the state peni-| teutiary at Jefferson City. Mo., was u£so a graduate of that school. Warning to Parents. i "And I just want to say a word here in connection with Mrs. O'Hara, who! was in my custody a short time fol it j lowing her arrest and again after her j conviction at Bismarck. She was a woman of considerable talent, pos sesses an active mind and is quit, a fluent speaker, but has the most |>er I verted ideas on governmental questions with which I have ever come iu con tact. She says she owes all of her odu qiiestlons to Walter cation on th Thomas Mills ; and after I had attend ed her trial at Bismarck, and saw and heard Mrs. O'Hara, I could not help but think what a tragedy it was in her life that she had been so unfor tunate as to ever meet with and listen to the teachings of a man like Mills. And afterwards, when I heard of Mills speaking at different places in the state, and read in the paper that he had addressed the students of the agricultural college and different state institutions. I thought how little the fathers and mothers of this state real ize the kind of doctrine that is being impressed upon ttie minds of their sons sat; jo nuai e joj n*» s.uotej v oj j^q pantnapuoo pun Wnoo tviipej ■ ui -»iianf jo j«q aqj : oi zaq jqknojq 'ujwjj.o spieqotH ajuyj J° pu|tu *qj peuosiod mqj, "°P* J° *smft aqi jepun sj-tjqSnep pus UO|l8J I i 1 ; I !
