Members of tlie Nonparti san league in convention at Fargo. (Continued From Page One.) North Dakota has been from the beginning just a fine old pock et borough for the interests. The railroads, banks, elevators and grain men had an iron-clad combination that ruled the poli tics of the state the way a bucko mate used to rule a Cape Homer. Do what you're told, keep still or get hurt. Today there isn't a rail road politician, -.lain agent or corporation ratal In the state that dares peep. The farmers are tlie whole cheese. Also, they have introduced a new system of choosing men for office. They started out literally to let the office seek the man. When It became evident last spring that they were likely to win out, a fine crop of their dear old friends and college chuniiules sprang up all about the state of fering the glad hand and pulling for this office or that. All they ever got was the icy stare and tho swift kick. Instead of listening to the dulcet notes of these charmers, the fanners went about hunting good men that were on the level and not Job hunters. l'in/.lci' Mukes t'mtat Their candidate for governor, for Instance, Lynn J.

The allies' note is not de serving of a written rejoinder. Summed up, that ls the Berlin press opinion—and It typifies the opinion of the man In the street. There is apparently a unani mous opinion that Germany's only answer to the allies' rejection of peace must bo by force of arms under Hlndenburg's leadership. Privately the editors of Berlin newspapers are even more bitter in their denunciation of the en tente's course than their printed statements. On New Year's night they were all at their desks writ ing editorials. One of these edit ors, the man writing the "leader" for the l.nkal Anzeiger, was asked what Germany would do. "Ix«t Hindenliurg Answer" "Hold out," he flashed back. "It ls Insanity for Europe to bleed to death—but the allies refuse peace. Only one reply can come —and that from our armies.
