Maxwell, at that time a national lecturer for the Nonpartisan league, ! why by his ability had risen from an organizer, became suspicious, first, 1 and convinced later, that the Nonpartisan league as controlled, was not on the square. He wrote the following letter to national headquarters, which has never been answered: j ing Dear Townley; Recent developments compel me to refuse to accept the position offered me by Gilbert, your National organizer. According to Mr. Gilbert I must "RE- | SPECT" the representative of the League in Colorado. Good Heavens!

Now with regard to the FARMERS of the yuo tOgr -P- | It was clearly under to ^" R D | ER x ' sentative I will say, we have been misled. that The National Nonpartisan League was an incorporated body, the manager, says it is not incorporated and therefore has no standing in court. This in itself gives room for suspicion. Also, I have discovered that j f the entire machinery of the organization, I mean the part of the machinery > that collects the COIN, secures the membership, pays the bills, makes the j bills, pays the salaries; in short the machinery that gathers in the finances, distributes the finances and controls the finances is completely under the control of a TRIO who never were elected by the people who furnish the finances. Quite a COMFORTABLE arrangement I assure you. I have furthermore discovered from the lips of Mörser that every State j manager is simply a channel for the conveyance of ORDERS from the DIC- j to TATOR. That the so-called EXECUTIVE committee selected in each STATE is nothing but a figurehead, having no power—good but harmless folks to give prestige and respectability to the movement. I have also discovered that in Colorado it is The National Nonpartisan j a League of St. Paul that we have on our hands instead of The Nonpartisan a Political League of Colorado. The National Nanpartisn League of St. Paul. a thing that has no standing in the courts, an irresponsible entity without body, parts, or passions, a coin collecting affair governed by a TRIO, and jour manager here says that this THING proposes to organize in Co^rado 5 J OOO FARMERS at $16 apiece, making a total of $SO0,000 and that THIS THING proposes to run the campaign, stamp its appro '' al u ' h * nd paternalistic all the bills, retain in its grip all the residue of COIN and Paternalistic fashion REDEEM US FROM THE HANDS of our ENEMIES to the tune of $800 090 Surely we are quite a lot of unsophisticated RUBES in Colorado if allow THIS THING to get away with this Program. "Go home and slop vour PIGS WE WILL REDEEM YOU." With 50,000 FARMERS in the or ganization in Colorado we folks down here think that it won't cost more than $50 000 to put the program and the candidates across. Subtracting the com mission and the campaign expenses from the $800,000 the FARMERS Ot this State would have $550,000 in the hands of an irresponsible ENTITY in St. Quite a nice sum of money I assure you to give away for the PRIVI Do you blame us if we REFUSE to go the whole •ays now. 6,000 FARMERS have paid in $16 ?• we Paul.

Your MANAGER here, a very affable gentle- | man at times, led us ORGANIZERS to believe that, just as soon as the move ment was under way, THE FARMERS of this State would assume control. With this end in view he selected an EXECUTIYE committee and he told the organizers that they could tell the FARMERS that through their own regu larly elected officials, they would control the organization.
