^i -.. ., .: i:fc' 1 }.« 4 I *r (By Publicity Bureau, Republican Campaign Headquarters) For the first time since the rise of Socialism and Townleyism iu North Dakota four years ago, which resulted in the capture of the Republican party organization by the Socialistic leaders of the Nonpartisan league in disguised as Republicans, the opposi tion to these radical forces feel con fident of victory. The battle for the rejuvenation of the Grand Old Party is still raging, but it is being fought on the enemy's ground and the Red Guard is on the defensive. Against this ticket all the radicals of North Dakota aud a horde of im ported Red agitators from all corners of the Union are arrayed. Townley leed Socialists, Towuleyized Republi cans, Townleyized Democrats, and radicals of all kinds and descriptions will vote for the opposition to this ticket on June 30th. Therefore all opponents of Townleyism must muster every atom of strength and energy to gather every obtainable vote for this ticket in an honorable way. The declaration of principles adopt ed by nearly four huudred elected delegates in convention at Minot on the twelfth and thirteenth day of May this year with its demands for and pledges of progressive legislation and a fair trial of the plaus submitted by the farmers of the state for solution of their market problems and other difficulties have met with the ap proval of all sanely progressive Re publicans in North Dakota. Many thousands of League farmers who Joined Townley's organization in good faith in order to obtain redress from these grievances, but who are not willing to gamble with the credit and the very future of North Dakota on •the basis of Townley's rule or ruin policies, have decided to support this platform as the only safe way in which to reach their goal. The candidates selected by the con vention in Minot are worthy of the confidence of the voters of the state. From the head of the ticket down they are men with ability, integrity, experience, sound common sense, and good judgment. They are without ex ception North Dakota products. North What meal has the Townley gang In its sack? The farmers of North Dakota mis taking this gang of political confidence operators for equity and co-operative apostles, have given them full freedom of legislation during the past four years. What has come out of the sack so far specifically for the farmer? We know the I. W. W. got the Anti-Injunc tion law and, pandering to labor, the gang passed the compensation bureau law which gives labor a small slice and the gang an immense fund to man age, but what has the land owner got ten outside of higher taxes and a bunch of promises? Let us see. Thriftless and Shiftless Plan to Get Farmer's Land. When Henry George desired to de stroy human desire to own land, he called his proposed method the single tax. When Professor Roylance of Utah produced the tax bill called for by the gang, lo and behold, it provided for al most an absolute single tax on lund. But the hook was too bare and the farmer fish shied. So they baited it over by proposing to tax farms but exempt Im provements. The same tiling, but a new name. Before the Townley gang got com plete control of the legislature the farmers carried on their hacks (farm lands and Improvements) 54.83% or more tax burden. In 1920 the farmers' tax burden had been Increased to 70.36 per cent or almost three-fourths of the total tax burden though his improve ments had been exempted from taxa tion. This shows an unmistakable tend ency toward a "single tax" scheme by which to eventually transfer the own ership of all land Into the hands of the state government. "Wasn't it strange that these new "farmer friends" should go back to Henry George's exposed and exploded single tax juggle for a scheme by which to skin land owners out of their holdings? Wasn't it "Big Biz" this Townley bunch was going to chase out of the country? Can it really be that at heart they are opposed to property in land and were willing to use the single tax pump to begin running the farmers' capital, which consists prin cipally of land, into the coffers of the state? It really seems so. Socialists Always Wanted State Bank. REPUBLICAN VICTORY TICKET Republican Leaders of People's Army Against Boss Townley and His Red Guard of Paid Agitators and Import ed Office Holders. "BY THEIR WORKS YE SHALL KNOW THEM" Dakota taxpayers and North Dakota property holders none of them are professional politicians none of them are office hunters. As candidates they have volunteered, or they have been drafted. The people know this, and they know that these candidates mean it when they pledge themselves to rid the state of the orgauized greed and lust of political power which now is iu coutrol of the destiny of the state. Therefore the ticket selected at Minot will go down in history as the VICTORY TICKET. These candi dates. and others added to the list later by the central committee which was given power and authority to fill vacancies, are officers of the mighty army of Americans who will put North Dakota back on the map as one of the Uuited States after the primary election on the thirtieth day of this month. ON TO VICTORY JUNE THIR TIETH WITH THESE CANDI DATES. AND WHILE WE HAVE BEEN WRITING OF MEN, DO NOT FORGET THAT THERE IS ONE GREAT REPRESENTATIVE OF AM ERICAN WOMANHOOD ON THE LIST: MISS MINNIE NIELSON, CANDIDATE TO SUCCEED HER SELF AS STATE SUPERINTEND ENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION, THE OBJECT OF THE BITTEREST AND MOST UNRELENTING PER SECUTION BY TOWNLEY AND HIS GRASPING HORDE. The Victory ticket is well balance^ in every way. All parts of the state are as evenly represented as possible north, south, east, west and points in between have added timber to the ticket. Most of the candidates may be classified as farmers, but there are also on the list the names of success ful businessmen, teachers and news papermen. Veterans of the late war are recognized with three men on the ticket, but no man is put there for class representation. Look them over on the sample ballot in the adjoining columns and see if they are not wor thy of your confidence and support. CARRY THIS TICKET TO VIC TORY AT THE PRIMARIES, JUNE 30th. One thing more the farmers got from these brand new "friends," Debs, Mills and Townley. Charles Fourier, the French socialist and Robert Owen, the Scotch socialist,- both, by the way, honest, open and above-board men, who actually believed in socialism and communism as a cure for poverty and social evils, wanted a general state bank. Karl Marx and his friend Fred erick Engels, German socialists, con veniently located in England, demand ed a general bank. In fact, every prominent socialist has always gloated and dreamed about a bank into which everybody should put all they had in the shape of money and credits, while the Socialist leaders, of course, would be self-elected to run it. And these "farmer friends" estab lished a state bank, already boasting $34,000,000 assets. Assets? Yes, as sets. That's what they call them. The rest of us know It Is the peoples' tax money carted out to Bismarck and which, being local money, must be carted back again. And who runs it? The governor, made by the gang, ap points a man and a set of men, true and tried followers of Townley, Hal liday. Waters and the like, and this bunch operating under the friendly supervision of the governor's bank ex aminer, Mr. Loftus, who found the Scandinavian-American bank of Fargo solv^pt, do as they please. When the state auditor wants to examine the bank they slam the door In his face. It is their bank. That's the second dose of socialism the farmers got from these "farmer friends." Socialists Always Preach Democracy But Build Autocraey. The Socialist, Karl Marx, and his whole tribe have always demanded that all power shall be vested in the state. The Pilgrim Fathers, the Revo lutionary fathers and the founders of our U. S. constitution and every patriot from Samuel Adams and Ben jamin Franklin, followed by Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Abraham Lin coln, and running down to Garfield. Cleveland and Roosevelt, have stood for the freedom, liberty and rights of the individual. Each and every one opposed the concentration of power In the hands of the few. Examine the industrial commission law, the state sheriff law, the board of administra tion law, and in short, every law touching power and control passed by the Townley gang, and where is the THE HOPE PIONEER power located? In the hands of the governor,—true to the socialist theory of government. So once again these "farmer friends" follow the beaten track of all prominent socialists and withdraw power and control from the local township, school district and county, nad place it iu the bands of their political tool. Single tax, state bank and concen tration of power advocated by the Townley gang, are the footprints of Marx, Engels, Debs, Mills and other socialists. "The Class Struggle" a Child of Socialism. The farmers of North Dakota got another thing from their "farmer friends." Karl Marx's greatest dis covery was the "class struggle" idea, arraying worker against employer and preaching eternal enmity between the two classes. Thus have Bowen, Town ley and their whole army of hired and imported "soap-boxers" and "organ izers" preached class against class. Class hatred. Class abuse. These have been the slogans and stock in trade arguments in the political razzle dazzle pulled off in North Dakota. The farmers got the old socialist lie about "class struggle" thoroughly worked in everywhere, not by a ranting about the eternal struggle between classes as they do in the congested cities of the east, but by stirring up the passions of the people by the calling of such names as Big Biz, profiteers, blood suckers. plutocrats, "farmer enemy" and the like. Thus another socialist track is added. Materialism, Atheism and "Direct Ac tion", in Our Midst. One more tiling the farmers, land owners and church people of North Dakota got from the Townley gang, the pretending "saviors and friends of the people." Townley, Bowen, LeSueur, Mills and Coates and many of the lesser lights of the Nonpartisan league are social ists. Karl Marx, Henry George, Mor riS Hilquit, and all shadows of these socialist leaders, insist on the "mate rialistic conception of history." That means in plain language that the bread and butter question has always and always will determine what laws, manners, morals and notions a people will have. This materialism or atheism is a very necessary tool if socialism shall prevail. Marxism proposes the overtaking of private property, the do ing away with the middle class family, and his followers have advocated "di rect action" that is arson, robbery and murder. Even as late as January 1920, Morris Hilquit testified that 'some shooting" would be necessary to establish the new order, aud Lenlne and Trotzky have shown the world what "direct action" means for all who have property, believe in owning prop erty or are opposed to roughneck tyrants. Hence the teachings of Christ which put a premium on man's soul and magnifies the mind above mere money, and especially the troublesome golden rule must be abolished. So ma terialism and atheism are necessary to clear the track for this new religion. That's why Morris Baritz, socialist or ganizer for Canada, says in his letter to the Toronto Daily Globe: "No Christian can' be a socialist and no socialist can be a believer in Christ or any supernatural God. The church will find in us its irreconcilable ene mies." This statement was reprinted in the Minneapolis Journal and many church papers, such as Lutheraneran and others just as well known and as authentic and orthodox from the so cialist point of view. In line with this, Upton Sinclair's "Profits of Religion" and other social slush literature has been advertised and defended by the league leaders in North Dakota. Tracks of Socialists. We have then the following tracks of the world's leading socialists writ ten plainly in the work and the laws given the North Dakota farmers by these "new farmer friends." Single tax, state bank, concentration of power in the state, class struggle and materialism, that is atheism. Karl Marx and Frederick Engels must turn over in their graves with a grunt of satisfaction at the good work done in North Dakota by their prac tical disciples, Debs, Mills, Bowen and Townley. PARALYZING OUR SCHOOLS (Continued from page 1) Some of them bark and some of them don't. President Kane, of the Uni versity, was ordered to hire and fire to make room for socialists like Wil son, Howe and others, and only a gen eral uprising of the alumni saved his head. Vote for Intelligence and Independence If you believe that the state will be better off to continue these paralyzing tactics, with reference to our schools, vote for those who are responsible for this condition aud who can be depend ed on to continue it. It is true that much of the legislation which has made possible this deplorable condi tion with reference to our schools is not the result of deliberate intention on the part of many of the legislators, but it is the result of either deliberate work or ignorant bungling. There fore, If you believe that our schools NOTICE-IMPORTANT When you go into the booth on pri mary election day, you will have sev eral ballots to vote. Be careful that you mark them correctly. You can vote only the Democratic or Repub lican party ballots, but Republicans and Democrats will have the same ballot when voting for candidates for the judgeships, school offices and county offices, as well as on the initi ated and referred laws. When mark ing the referred laws ballot, be sure that you make an (X) after the word "Yes," following the Anti-Red Flag law, and after the word |'No" follow ing each of the State Sheriff law, the Special Investigating Committee law (smelling committee), and the Absent Voters law. «Yes" on the first, and "No" on the other three Is right. When marking your various ballots, as to candidates, read each name care fully and be sure that you are putting your (X) after the right name in each instance. Take the sample ballot with you to the polls on election day and mark your (X) following the same names that you find with an (X) after them, on this sample ballot Remember also that the names of candidates will not appear in the same place on all ballots. For in stance, under railroad commissioner, the name of W. H. Stutsman may ap pear first among the candidates' names on one ballot, while on another ballot it may be the third or last name among the candidates for railroad commissioner.

FRUITS HARVESTED AND PROMISED When four years ago the Townley gang through misrepresentation se cured control of North Dakota's state government, they found a state with an Indebtedness of less than half a million a state with the lowest tax per quarter section in the United States a state with unexcelled credit in the main money markets of the country, its bonds and mortgages com manding the lowest rate a state in which public spirit, goodwill and strong waves of progress In every direction were the main marks a state noted for Its freedom from un sound and freak legislation a state in which Individual freedom and strong local self-government both in educational and civil matters existed In the highest degree. Today after four years of misrule we have a state in which each of the above mentioned marks have been destroyed. In the light of these facts it is right and proper that every intelligent voter should ask: "What are the anti-Townley candi dates and the anti-Townley platforms pledged to?" In short, what may the voter expect if lie replaces the Social ist gang with au administration con sisting of North Dakota citzens who will govern the state for North Dako tans?
