DECEMBER 17. 1920. Have the farmers notierd how the nonpartisan league organizers lost interest in them as soon as the bal lots were counted on November 2? It is strange that men whose great love for the people prompts them to leave their own states and come Into this and other states to save the farmers at $ 18 per save, can forget about the distressful condition of the farmers as soon as the latter "signed up" under the stress of an exciting »•olitical campaign.

WHERE ONE LIBERTY LOAN IS (From the New York Herald) Men who know what they are talking about say government ship building and government ship oper ation have cost the taxpayers $2, 000,000.000 in extravagance, waste, graft and theft. Most of the taxpayers have standard by which to gain compre hension of what $2,000,000,000 means. This amount of money Is so great it overwhelms the imagina tion. no Yet there is one comparison which may be useful in bringing home to everybody the stupendous cost to the taxpayers of their betrayal by ad ministration incompetents. In June, 1917, the first Liberty Loan was floated. The Treasury appealed to every patriot In the country to help out. Four million, five hundred thousand and children subscribed. men, women Some of them were poor, and their subscrip tions meant for them privations. Others subscribed more than they could afford because the government had to have the money. The first Liberty Loan was for actly $2.000,000,000, or the amount which the shipping transactions of the administration have cost the taxpayers In graft, waste and spec illation. The men and women who worked And saved to buy the first Liberty Loan will have at least an Idea of ■ what the scoundrels and incompe tents have cost them in government shipbuilding and opeiatlon. ex !
