IS EXPLAINED IN DETAIL

scheme the leaders of the Nonpartisan
league got $2,000,000 of the farmers
money for their propaganda, but the
farmers did not get any terminal ele
Farmers Not Protected.
These leaders have advocated as
one of their cardinal points in their
program the aim to secure legislation
for the farmers directed toward pro
tection of the farmers against dis
crimination in the matter of railroad
rates and transportation of freights.
Guided by the influence of Townley
the legislature of North Dakota
passed a law known as House Bill
No. 298, an act providing for a defi
nite schedule of rates of various
classes of freight, based on a docu
ment known as Circular No. 54 and
issued by the freight bureau of St.
Paul. This Circular ties the state of
North Dakota hand and foot at any
time the freight bureau sees fit to
demand the circular. Townley play
ed his cards in favor of the freight
bureau and left the farmers without
Consumers' United Stores.
Under the name of the Consumers
United Store company, Townley and
his subordinates have secured un
limited rights and privileges.
This company, supposed to be a
central buying and selling agency for
the welfare of the farmers but a
study of their articles of incorpora
tion shows that they intend to carry
out another plank in their socialist
platform, the one relating to state
ownership of all public interprises.
To this scheme the farmers have
contributed about $1,000,000 in mem
berships. Approximately three-fourths
of the memberships have been paid
in by notes bearing interest at 8
per cent from date of issue, leaving
the neat sum of $60,000 per annum
to the Consumers United Store com
pany, and all the farmers get out of
it is a lot of "blue sky."
They refused to pass an anti-red
flag law. They refused to pass a law
defining radicalism and fixing pen
alty for riots and offences. They re
fused to make an honorable account
for the millions of dollars collected
from the farmers.
Our indictment against the leaders
of the Nonpartisan league is clean
cut. Their system threatens to over
throw our government, juggle our
courts, demoralize our schools, un
dermine our home church and fra
ternal life, jeopardize our industrial
and business interests, impair our
public funds, disgrace our good name
in the eyes of the world, confiscate
our land and industries and open the
floodgates for the vastest floodtide
of political corruption that the stars
I of the firmament ever gazed down
Can you wonder that we emphatic
ally denounce the leaders of the Non
partisan league and their dangerous
propaganda. We propose co-opera
-tion and community service to be the
best methods of solving our industrial
problems, and we positively refuse to
accept a policy proposed by the lead
ers of the Nonpartisan league which
would plunge our state into a debt
that it would take generations to

exemplified in the motion picture,
