THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION
AND POLITICAL CONDI
TIONS IN NORTH DA-
KOTA
By R. A. Lathi-op.
The writer has felt that there
is much interest in political ques
tions at this time, and a good deal
of misunderstanding throughout
the state in regard to many issues
and that therefore it might not
je out of place to discuss them
through the Pioneer. First let me
clear the Editor of any guilt in
this connection as it was at my
suggestion, that the articles are
published, and are written in the
hope of throwing some light
The writer sent a letter to all
members elect shortly- before the
Legislature met, which was sent
out in the hopes of minimizing a
prejudiced attitude that was pre
valent, (largely unjustified it
seemed to me) and in the further
hopes of inaugurating some re
forms in the proceedure. In this
was laid down several principles
or beliefs, as follows
First, The belief that every
member had at heart the welfare
of the state.
Second, That many have too
narrow a conception of the of
fice, allowing local interests to
govern actions rather than state
wide considerations.
Third, Lack of toleration of the
opinions of the "other fellow
and that if approached in the right
spirit differences of opinion woulc
make for balanced legislation.
Fourth, That we should not
place too great faith in legislation
as a cure for all our ills to the
extent tfcat we forget, and possibly
neglect, personal responsibilities
Fifth, The danger of one-sided
neSs if any one faction attempts
to govern by itself, without con
sideration of the opinions of the
whole body, or opposition to the
secret caucus system which is
sometimes used in politics, more
frequently with bad results rather
than good.
It was my feeling that if the
secret caucus was put into opera
tion, as was talked at the time,
that it could result in nothing but
driving the Legislature into two
camps where it would be difficult
to accomplish things, as, many
members would decline to enter in
to any system that bound them
to vote other than their own per
sonal convictions. The results it
seems to me confirmed this view.
The failure of folks to realize
that a person may disagree upon
some political or enconomic be
lief and yet be honest is the
greatest stumbling block to con
certed action,' or cof-operation
along any line, but yet "tis true
and pity 'tis 'tis true". So in
anything that is said in these ar
tides, it is said with this thought
in mind, that the rank and file oi:
people are honest in their intents
and purposes. Personally have

matters political and with the feel
ing that people are in a mood to
consider questions before us with
a more open mind than at any time
during the past two years. Frank
and full consideration, and even
friendly criticism, can result in no
harm, and should result in good.
Of course it is not possible to dis
cuss legislative doings, (being a
member) without bringing myself
into it somewhat, and in fact
shall touch upon the things that
1 have tried to accomplish, and
give something of my trend of
thought along political lines, for
when one holds an office of this
nature the public is entitled to
know these things. This first num
ber is more of an introduction
than anything else and an outline
of the purpose, and some general
observations as a foundation for
what comes later.

never been gi'eatly inclined to
find too much fault with existing
troubles feeling that the belter
way is to try and work out some
constructive remedy. It seems
also that there has been so much
said and written during the p'ist
two years about the calamities
under which' we are laboring
jig business, corrupt politicians,
wicked legislation, etc. etc. that
we have brought ourselves to bc
ieve that We are vastly worse
off than the facts would warrant,
for it is often said that we can.
find what we are looking for in
this world. Just to call to mind
the bank deposits of our state
for the 11 year period from Nov
ember 1905 to November 1916,
the first year being a good crop
year and the latter a poor year,
it is interesting to note that while
4 he population was increasing
around 90 per cent, the bank de
posits increased about 450 per cent
so this don't look like Ave were
going "to the bad" entirely, and
may not be out of place to refresh
our minds with these facts once
in a while. Great stress is being
laid on the Fedearl Farm Loan act
just being put in force, providing
funds at 5 per cent, (a splendid
thing too) yet it might be remem
bered that the laws in force for
years in our state have provided
for 5 per cent farm loans to the ex
tent of several million dollars,
thing that our neighbor states of
Minnesota and South Dakota are
just beginning to practice.
Don't think for a minute that
am arguing for a standstill policy,
but, the men who have been in the
lead of political movements in this
state during the past two years it
seems to me represent extreme
radical ideas that put in operation
in present form will work no bene
fit to the state. This is not at
tacking them nor saying that they
are not honest in their beliefs, for
started out with the proposition
that I believed the majority of
men are sincere in their political
opinions. Personally it is of no
importance where an idea comes
from, or what it is called, and
in fact I supported some of the
so^balled League Program before
the organization came into exist
ance. However, we must admit that
a good deal of it is experimental
So my purpose is simply to present
some of the legislative doings ant
discuss some political issues that
differing views may be before the
readers of this paper, in the hopes
that we may see that there are
two sides to some of the questions,
and, in time it may be discovere
that some of the members of the
legislature who have been repres
ented as against the farmers were
really safeguarding their interests
at least I know from contract with
them that they certainly felt that
they were protecting the best, in
terests of the state. Personally
have always tried to be progres
sive in political action, and if
I were to sum up a sentence the
ideal of political progress it would
be "progress by evolution, not
by revolution."
Next week will discuss the or
ganization of the Legislature and
the secret caucus system employed.
Don't forget the Grand
Ball this Friday night.

40 PER CENT SOLUTION
WHEAT SMUT— Mix one pound of 40 per cent Formaldehyde with 45 gallons of water. Apply
this to the seed grain in any manner that will moisten all the grain oyer all the surface.
OAT SMUT AND BARLEY SMUT—Use same mixture as for wheat, but more care should be
used to see that the grain is wet enough to soak through the ohaff.
FLAX SICK SOIL OR FLAX WILT— Flax does not exhaust the land. A parasitic fungus is
found on the seed and if planted without treatment, will spoil the land for flax. You can't get the
fungus out of the soil, but you can prevent it from going in with the seed. Treat with same solution
as for wheat. Use the spray and shovel method. A small force pump set to throw a fine gpray
gives best results. Apply about one-half gallon of solution per bushel.
POTATO SCAB—Us6 the same mixture as above. Soak whole potatoes for two hours before
cutting them for planting. Use only the best grade of formaldehyde.
Price, 30 cts. per pound. In lots of over 10 pounds, special price of 25 cts. per pound.
