And, even that tax is chargeable to the N. P- league. Last winter a law was passed—S. B. 143—which made it the duty of the county commissioners to furnish this free grasshopper poison when petition ed by not less than 10 per cent of the electors of such county. Well, the necessary 10 per cent of the electors petitioned—and the county commis sioners had to obey the law. Now, the leaguers blame the county commission ers. And the grasshopper poison, hail fl(rure the additional two to be raised for gtate gf?3 that the ball was kept rolling. ft .-i£/ A league bank at Fargo shows up in a defuct condition. The league bos ses howl that the farmers' credit has been attacked. Not at all. It iB sim ply the Townlby kind of credit that is under fire. Those who have given careflul thought to the conditions of the Scan dinavian-American Bank scandal have been struck by one particular point. Recently, all the local banks received signed notes for one thousand each, and a letter stating that post-dater checks and notes sufficient tp guaran tee the loan were in the hands of the Scandinavian-American Bank at Far go. And so. at last, we see the light. That bank proves to have greater loans than the notes and checks war rant. And still, several hundred thous and more were to be borrowed on the same "security." Just like a man mortgaging a cow to about a half dozen different banks, and none of them filing their mort gage. Whoever might get the cow, if she lived, wouVl be the fortunate one. But that's the brand of finance Townley believes in. I That's the kind of finance that al lowed him to hack the people out at Beach, and that's the reason that any thing that Townley stands for Hoses in Golden Valley county, where Beach is situated.
