wrote on April S, 1917, just as we

the Non-partisan league as at present

hostile to the United States and they

Here are the official minutes of the meeting of the I. W. W. held
for the purpose of ratifying an agreement with the Non-Partisan
"Moved and seconded: That we give the floor to Arthur LeSeuer
to explain what the grounds are on which we can meet and come to
an agreement with the Non-Partisan League in regard to working
conditions in the harvest fields of North Dakota. Carried.
Arthur LeSeuer made the following statement:
That the farmers of North Dakota would be willing to pay $5.00
per day for a ten hour day. Also that if we can come to some
understanding with the Non-Partisan League of North Dakota it
will mean the Industrial Workers of the World and the Non
Governor Burnquist of Minnesota received a letter from Arthur
LeSeuer in March 1918, which he signed as executive secretary of
the National Non-Partisan League. This proves the connection be
tween the leaders of the Non-Partisan league and the I. W. W.
Townley and LeSeuer figure that if they can get the Non-Partisan
League and the I. W. W. to vote the same ticket that he can control
The Non-Partisan League Leaders take the farmer's $16.00 and
then proceed to line up with the I. W. W. which burns his crops,
blows up his threshing machines, drives nails into his fruit trees,
opposes the war and fights the Liberty Loan. While the P'ederal
Government places "Bill" Haywood and his bunch in the Federal
Prison in Chicago, Townley coaches the farmers that only by fol
lowing his organization can the farmer hope for full realization of his
dreams, he looks to the I. W. W. to furnish part of the vote by
which he can control Idaho.
Will the farmer vote with the man who burned his crops in 1917
and who had to be driven from the states by Military authority with
the breaking out of the war?
Surely no sensible and law abiding, patriotic farmer desires to be
found in such company.
