COON, • Editor and Publisher Subscription - $1.50 Per Year FRIDAY. APRIL 4, 1919. PORTM ASTER GENERAL BURLESON has endeared himself to the public again by ordering a raise of twenty per cent in telegraph rates. If he keeps on he will become the most popular man of the cabinet, we don’t think. Put the corn crop into the silo and the barley crop into the feed bin. This is more economical than using corn at present prices, says G. C. Humphrey, in charge of the dairy herd at the Wis consin College of Agriculture. Barley at 85 cents a bushel costs $1.77 a hun dredweight; corn at $1.35 a bushel costs $2.41 a hundredweight. At these prices barley, which contains 9 per cent di gestible protein and 79.4 per cent total digestible nutrients, is the more econ omical feed. Seems mighty odd if Uncle Sam can guarantee the prices on wheat and oth er commodities that he can’t guarantee the price on Liberty bonds. There should be a law passed forbidding the selling or offering for sale of a Liberty bond of any issue at less than par, like wise there should be a law against buy ing or seeking to purchase a Liberty bond at less than face value. We fix prices on everything else, why not fix E rices on Liberty bonds? It makes our lood boil to read advertisements offer ing “market” value for Liberty bonds. —Ashland Press. The sth Liberty Loan drive, which will be known as the Victory Liberty Loan, will, according to a statement made on March 12th by Carter Glass, secretary of the treasury, be opened on Monday, April 21st, will last lor three weeks and will end on Saturday, May 10th. This is expected to be the last liberty loan undertaken by the govern ment. The amount of the loan and the rate of interest have not yet been an nounced by the treasury department. This issue of government liberty secur ities will consist of short-term notes rather than long-term bonds, such as were issued during the first four Lib erty Loan drives. lowa has taken hold of its primary election law by both ears and is yank ing the miserable thing out of its stat utes, Our crippled and diseased con trivance is permitted to take up space in our statutes because, and only be cause, it is the bridge that carried most of our legislators into prominence. lowa is satisfied that any law so viola tive of the rule of reason and common sense, as the primary law admittedly is, should not be permitted to slumber in its statutes lest it may contaminate and afflict the whole body of its laws. The primary law has been tried and proven worthless. It is in dispute in every state where it h.is been tested. We retain it only because those having the power to repeal it dare not for fear of repealing themselves. Grocery Bargains for One Week. Some Slocks Limited and Prices Hold For Goods on Hand.

Hamlin of Missouri, .Keating of Colorado and Cooper of Wisconsin go on a commission appointed to begin a reclassification of salaries in the Dis trict of Columbia. They will receive for this work the same salaries they got in Congress, or $626 a month. Why is it that Mexico, a country which approaches the United States in natural resources, is bankrupt as a na tion, while the United States is the richest country on the globe? It is be cause the United States has had a stable government and the people have been able to make orderly progredi. Travelers tell us that there are mil lions of acres of agricultural land in Siberia, the equal of the best in Indi ana, lowa or Illinois. These lands can be bought for a song. Why is it? Be cause. under the government of Amer ica, the people have been permitted to develop their resources. Because great transportation lines have been laid down so that the products of our farms everywhere can reach a market. Be cause we have a government under which life, liberty and property are se cure. Perhaps the most grossly partisan law ever enacted by a state legislature was that enacted at the direction of the Non-Partisan party caucus by the North Dakota legislatura providing for the withdrawal of all legal printing from every newspaper in the state not of the persuasion of the party in power. This law provides for the concentration of all legal printing, public and private, in one newspaper in each county to be politically designated. Another law, similarly inspired, provides an appro priation of two hundred thousand dol lars a year to be used in propaganda in behalf of the present state administra tion, legislative and administrative, in North Dakota, justified on the ground that it is intended to promote immigra tion. Defense of the administration, of course, involves defense of the pol icies espoused by the party in power in \ North Dakota, and the measure simply j means that all the people of the state, ! no matter to what party they belong, are to be taxed to pay the campaign bills of the party in power. No polit ical party in this country ever before undertook to use the puhlic treasury for such a purpose. The experiment of putting some twenty million dollars provided by placing a mortgage on all the property of all the people of North Dakota into the hands or the office holding politicians, to be used by them in conducting banking, merchandising and other business enterprises, is now on. The people of North Dakota will soon be able to judge whether these enterprises are to be conducted in the same spirit which has inspired the law subsidizing the local organs of the* party in power and that using the peo ple’s money to carry forward partisan propaganda.
