INTERESTSBEHINDPLAN Propaganda Campaign Against Pro gressives in U. S. Printed in Thou sands of NewspapersFinanced By Rockefeller, Guggenheim, Dupont and Others. Washington, D. C.The National Security league, founded with the an nounced purpose of securing "100 per cent Americanism," was first planned in a foreign country, according to findings of a congressional coir mittee which has been investigating this or ganization. The National Security league, dur ing the last campaign, essayed to pass upon the "Americanism" of candi dates for congress- and other offices. It sent out "boiler plate" and other publicity to between 1700 and 1800 newspapers throughout the country. It was notable that the candidates op posed by the National Security league were nearly all men who had been prominent in the progressive politics of the country. The reason for this is shown in the congressional investigation. The league was supported by the big finan cial Interests who were interested in throttling liberal thought. Among the contributors were the following: The Carnegie corporation, John D. Rockefeller, J. P. Morgan, the Guggen heim brothers, T. Coleman Dupont (multi-millionaire munitions manufac turer), Charles Deering of the Inter national Harvester Company, Henry C. Frick of the United States Steel corporation George W. Perkins, W. H. Vanderbilt, P. W. Vanderbllt, B. M. Baruch and others. The individual contributions of these men ran as high as $150,000. Origin Interesting. The story of how the National Se curity league came to be founded, as revealed by the congressional investi gation, is interesting. It first originat ed in the mind of Stanwood Menken, a corporation lawyer, during a visit he made to London and the British par liament in August, 1914, long before the United States was engaged in the war. The first man Mr. Menken consult ed regarding the organization of the league was Frederic C. Coudert, a cor poration attorney representing the British ambassador and the British, French, Russian and Italian govern ments. This, again, was long before the United States became involved in war. It was long before Germany had begun to interfere with United States commerce. The munition makers, at this period, were the only ones that wanted the United States to go to war, because at this time no reason for our entering the world conflict existed. As the result of the conferences of Mr. Menken, Mr. Coudert, and others, the league was organized, with Charles D. Orth, a member of the London and New York firm which vir tually controls the sisal market, as manager. The so-called "sisal trust," Northwestern farmers will remember, is responsible for their paying about four times the former price for their binder twine. Began To Collect. Steps were at once taken to solicit funds from munition makers, packers, copper barons and all other interests which might be expected to profit from war conditions. The political persecutions, false charges of sedition, incitements to mob violence and other activities against leaders of progressive thought in America, that continued during the war, can largely be traced to the teachings of the National Security league. The league instituted a "loyalty questionnaire" and a "patriotic" inqui sition called "the league's acid test" for the purpose of hounding out of office and public life all liberals, pro gressives and radicals. Members of congress were sum moned before the league inquisitors, and were asked, not about their loy alty, but whether they had made cer tain statements derogatory of J. Pier pont Morgan. Admitting that he had made such a statement, one congress man was immediately branded as dis loyal. The league-has now been thorough ly investigated by a committee of seven congressmen. This committee has made its report, showing the above facts. Six of the seven investigators concur in the report. The minority report of the seventh member agrees with the report of his colleagues in the main, departing from it only in details. If the noldiers are to go "back to the land," the land must be made worth going back to. North Dakota alone so far has recognized that land at speculative value and without im provements is not worth going back to. That farmer-controlled state not only is taxing the speculative value out of idle land but is offering ready made farms at cost on long time pay ments. The land there wijl be worth going back to. IDAHO GOES STAND-PAT Legislature Most Reactionary of Any State in Union. League of Nations Denounced in Anti Wilson ResolutionSoldiers Are Treated Shabbily by "Memo rial" PlanAll Farmer La bor Legislation Killed. Boise, Iadho.Idaho has completed its legislative session, with the dis tinction of having the most reactionary record of any state in the Union. Of 40 states that have adopted the direct primary, Idaho was the first to yield to the Influence of the water power, lumber and mining interests and to vote to go back to the corrupt convention method of selecting candi dates. This was done, legislative lead ers admitted, in an attempt to kill the Nonpartisan league. Idaho also established a state con stabulary to punish union labor, which lined up with the farmers at the last election. The legislature took a flat stand against permanent peace through the League of Nations. It passed a res olution denouncing the League of Na tions and tried to make President Wil son's work at the peace conference more difficult by declaring, in this res olution, that President Wilson does not represent the American people. Chance for Frame-Ups. A vicious attempt to provide means to "frame up" cases against members of farmers' organizations is made in a bill amending the criminal syndical ism act. The amendments make it a felony to be a member of any "society, group or assemblage" where the crime of criminal syndicalism is advocated. This would* mean that if interests op posed to an organization of farmer's or working men could send in agents to their meetings and if these agents should advocate anything that could be construed as "criminal syndicalism" at one of these meetings, it would give the anti-farmer, anti-labor gang a chance to prosecute every member of the organization for a felony. In striking contrast to North Dako ta's generous provisions for returned soldiers, the Idaho legislature passed a bill to allow counties, with state, aid, to put up "memorials" which are to be bought by the state, in uniform style, for $24,000 a dozen. Although the state of Idaho had no money for the relief of thousands of unemployed soldiers, the state pro vided $900,000 bonds for additions to the state capitol. The main capitol building provided thousands of dollars worth of graft for state officials, among them the state treasurer, who is still in the penitentiary, a confessed em bezzler. The state still owes three quarters of a million dollars on the main building. The legislature refused to pass a League bill extending a moratorium to the soldiers and sailors. It refused to extend tax exemptions that are al lowed for veterans of other wars. The legislature refused to provide for the initiative, referendum and recall. It refused to amend the constitution to allow state development of water power. It refused to exempt farm im provements from taxation. Referring to what the legislature did in regard to the returned soldiers, one legislator said: "The boys ask for bread and the leg islatures gives them stone monu ments." Will Washington please explain how it was that after those hog price re strictions maintained with so much difficulty "in the interest of the farmer" were removed, hog prices went up? It would seem as if the packers ought to appreciate this offi cial protection rather than the farm- THE TOMAHAWK, WHITE EARTH, MINN. WHOSE FUNERALISIT? (From Stars and Stripes, Offi cial Newspaper of A. E. F.) There are a great many splen did things being said and done in the States incident to the Ameri can soldier's return. And, as might be expected, a great many things equally as silly. The American soldier believes that this war has been fought for something very spiritual and yet very tangible, and that the peace to follow is to be a worthy one. He will return to face life with the same high courage with which he confronted death. He feels sure of the welcome he will And, and he hopes to slide back quietly and unostentatiously into harness and help pull the load of a bigger, bet ter world. To programs of land reclamation and vocational training, insurance protection, and help for the maimed and blind, the returning soldier looks forward as a measure of jus tice which he hopes will be worked out to a consummation in keeping with the new order of things. There are, however, unfor tunately, a great many people in the States with lots of time and nothing to do, to whom it ought to be suggested that he does not appreciate the charity campaign now in full swing. He doesn't object to his old uniform and some of its acces sories* nor to the extra month's paythat is an intimate little matter between himself and his Uncle. But when he picks up the paper and reads in, per* haps, nine of 15 items some novel proposition, rather vague, but nevertheless entirely sug gestive of the charitable inten tions of the authors, he feels very much like a man who has left home and upon returning finds someone else Installed in the best chambers and the word "welcome" on the cellar door. One state is planting trees for us, another naming pigs for us, all the hens in another state laying eggs for us, and someone else is plan ning to make New York policemen out of us. Some governors are calling the politicians together and proclaiming that something has got to be done with us, and com mittees are being appointed (with salaries) to look into the matter. Some are recommending that all of us be sent back to the farm and others that we be hired by the gov ernment. What a tremendous awaken ing is in store for all these dear people when the soldier sets foot again upon the old sod, shakes the dust of battle from his clothes, and wades in to things with a breeze that will blow all the charity boards and governor's committees out of his way forever! Getting Together. The labor unions of Chicago have signified their intention of transferring several million dollars which they car ry on deposit in Chicago banks to the Bank of North Dakota, after that in stitution has been opened for business. They have also promised that if the financial interests of the country re fuse to invest in North Dakota bonds, to be issued for the purpose of financing the state industrial enter prises of North Dakota, they will step in and buy them. The friendship be tween organized labor in the cities and the organized farmers of the Northwest is one of the most signifi cant political developments in the United States for recent years.Fer gus Falls.

HAS UNIQUE SETTING Attack Appears to Have Been Made With Insane FuryVictim De fends Self With Leather Slungshot. New York.Criminal experts in New York city are racking their brains in an effort to find a solution of the mys tery surrounding the murder of Win field Scott Philhower, rich electrical expert and curio collector, whose mu tilated body was found in his den, with a queer Oriental sword and a heavy leather slungshot near by. Both the sword and the slungshot, alike unique in design, were among the curios Phil hower had collected during Ids life time. There-was missing only a beau tiful diamond ring which Philhower wore, Indicating that robbery was not the sole motive for the crime. The police, it Is stated, are proceed ing on the basis that the murder arose out of something deeper, some long en tertained grudge or some suddenly de veloped and Intense hatred. It may have been the act of an Oriental fa natic, they say. The sole clew is said to be a piece of paper with Phllhow er's address scribbled upon it. Th pa per was found near the body and the address was not Philhower's writ ing. Slaughtered With Ancient Swovd. According to the evidence In the hands of the police, Philhower was in his den when his assailant entered through a narrow hall and pulled an ancient Oriental sword from the wall. Philhower, it appears, must have known that death was upon him, for he jerked a heavy leather slungshot from a hook above his divan and de fended himself with it. The havoc wrought in the room shows that PhlK Slain In Den of Curios. bower fought desperately against an attack which appears to hav* been in sane In Its violence. The body of Philhower was found on the floor of his den, twisted from the fury of the death struggle. His skull was fractured from the blows dealt with the ancient sword and wounds on his head and body Indicated that his assailant had used the weapon both as a saber and a sword. The slungshot, which Philhower is believed to have used, was slashed In several places.
