Two-Hundred Papers of
North Dakota Have
Been Denounced
Two hundred newspapers in Nor\h
Dakota are putting up a fight for
existence. Denounced by the Non
partisan league as being the "kept
press,'' because they did not endorse
the league, they are about to be
wiped off the newspaper m^p and
put out.of business by Non-partisan
legislation. The same legal enact
jnent that puts them out of busi
ness, also turns their b.i.incss to the
papers owned by the Non-partisan
league, and at ohe stroke makes
these in fact and practice a "kept
press," kept and supported by the
whole state and all the people in it
whether they like it or not.
Former Ar(V) Sian Did It
North Dakota is ruled by the Non
partisans and a former Arco man,
J. W. Brinton who once published
the /irco Advertiser, framed a law
providing for the appointment of an
"official paper" in each county in
the state, in which all legal notices
of every kind, both public apd pri
vate, must be published. Having
them published in no other paper,
no matter how large a circulation
they had in the county, would not
give the notice legal recognition, and
the only salvation there is left for
the newspapers that do not enjoy
the favor of the Non-partisan of
ficials is to call a referendum vote
of the people of the state to repeal
the law, and such referendum is be
ing fought out on the soil of North
Dakota with a bitterness seldom seen
in political fights.
Had Laid the Foundation
The Non-partisans had prepared
the way in advance, by organizing
newspaper companies or corporations
and selling enough stock to farmers
to capitalize the business and when
the chain of papers was complete
they enacted this law to force the
business to those papers.
Starting in Idaho
Such a process is in progress in
Idaho, and they have secured con
trol of a few newspapers either
openly or indirectly. One example is
the Nampa Record, which they bar
gained for for $12,000. They sold
stock to the farmers to pay for it,
and then organized a stock company
for $25,000, watering the stock for
the controling interest and making
a stock certificate to W. G. Scholtz
for the $13,000 to control it. When
the farmers finally demanded to
know where was the $13,000 Scholtz
is said to have admitted that he had
not yet paid it, but said he was ready
to settle, and lie gave them a promis
sory note payable in ten years, after
date, and got it accepted and the
meeting adjourned.
A Former Blackfoot Man
Charlie Bumgarner, a former resi
lent of Blackfoot, and Rev. Deal, a
Meth dist minister cf Nampa,
Meth dist minister cf Nampa, were
members of the board of directors,
and were very active in trying to
take away Mr. Sclioltz's power. At
a special meeting called for the
nineteenth of Marcii to "throw
Scholtz out," Scholtz had his stock
in the hands of other men who voted
as he wanted them to, and lie tlifew
out the whole board and elected one
of his own. They claim that with
out putting up a dollar he has tlie
the management and control of tlie
paper. It is said they are taking tlie
matter into the courts to see whether
"water stock" can be manipulated
in this way to defeat the will of all
tlie people who put up tlie money.
it will be remembered that wat
ered stock and the "kept press" were
two of the tilings the Non-partisan
organizers and speakers have always
condemned very bitterly and urged
upon their hearers as good reasons
why they should join the league to
right all such wrongs.
Print Paper Still High
The present high prices of print
naper are botintd to exist for some
time, or advance somewhat. The
price lias been fixed by a commis
sion, after making exhaustive inves
tigations of the cost of manufacture.
The manufacturers protested that
the price fixed was too low and got a
rehearing and it was raised some.
A short time ago the publishers made
an appeal for a re-hearing and it
was refused.
Greater Scarcity in Prospect
In the past ten years no new
paper mills have been built, and only
two have been enlarged. The vis
ible supply, or reserve of print paper
in the United States is only sufficient
to last about six weeks, and foreign
countries are buying up as much of
that as they can for shipment abroad.
Indications are that the paper fam
ine will become more pronounced as
ocean shipping accomodations be
come bettqr.

WASHINGTON. — Secretary of
War Baker and General March, chief
of staff, are charged by members of
congress with having entered into an
apparent agreement to prevent Gen
eral Pershing, hero of the war with
Germany and a Republican, from
making public his plan, based upon
actual experience in command at the
front, for reorganization of the ser
vice after the treaty of peace lias
been actually signed.
General Pershing's report, made
to the secretary of war, lies securely
tucked away in a war department
pigeon hole. Meanwhile March and
Baker are hurrying thru the details
o fa plan prepared far away from the
front in Washington by those not
directly in the fight. This scheme
gives concentrated power to the chief
of staff. Proposed to members of the
military affairs committees of the
house and senate, it resulted in a
snub for General March. Hence one
of the first military acts of the new
Republican congress will be to de
mand of the war department that
it turn over the Pershing document
so that a policy may be developed
based upon facts gained from the
war's battles and organization.
