Reaches Crisis.
Minneapolis, Minn. Deporta
tion of ex-congressman Ernest
Lundeen from Ortonville promises
to bring to a climax the struggle
against official and semi-official
rrtob violence in Minnesota.
Lundeen was "arrested" by the
sheriff as he opened his speech on
the League of Nations. Outside
he was turnetfTSiver to alleged rep
resentatives of the American
Legion who confined him in a re
frigerator car. He was released
at another, town 20 miles away.
Governor Burnqutst declined'to
take action because of alleged
lack of official information. But
the World War Veterans' associa
tion has taken charge of the case,
and unless the governor ousts the
sheriff within two weeks, will
bring court prosecution against
him.
The sheriff and oftiers concerned ii
this violation of lair and order alleg*
that they acted to protect the ex-con
gressman, but no evidence is at hand
to show that any danger was present
other than what these themselves of
fered. Nor did the sheriff and the city
marshall make any effort to protect
him from the alleged danger before
depriving Lundeen of his constitu
tional rights and presenting the peo
ple of Ortonville from hearing his
ideas on this vi'-l subject
Citizens Protest.
One group of local citizens has pre
sented the governor wit'i a protest
against the illegal treatment The as
sociation of returned soldiers has tak
en up the case not because of agree
ment with his ideas or any connection
with the ex-congressman but because
of the principles which must be main
tained if free government is to be re
stored in Minnesota.
In Minneapolis the mayor and chief
of police have had to take stern meas
ures to stop illegal assaults and de
struction of private property by inter
ests anxious to head off reform with
the "loyalty" issue. Already sevoral

Ex-Soldiers Act.
Resolutions adopted by the World
War Veterans' association on the Lun
deen case, read in part as follows:
"We realize that there is prevalent
in this state a vicious disposition on
the part of many newspapers and too
many public officials to spread fear
and intimidation among the mass of
the people of the state by suggesting
and encouraging individual and mob
violence and by publishing false
propaganda of law, order and loyalty
as camouflage for actual oppression.
"And, whereas, we are honorably
discharged service men of the late war
and our experience therein has
brought home to us responsibility as
citizens and our duty as such to see
that the law is enforced equally upon
all, we must therefore and for all the
reasons stated take upon ourselves to
demand and insist that mob rule and
the intimidation of our citizens be
stamped out in the state of Minnesota
and we must, if necessary, take upon
ourselves the initiative in enforcing
the laws of the state and causing of
fenders guilty of intimidation under
color of office and those guilty of mob
violence and ct encouraging mob
lence to be brought to justice and
prosecuted t- the full extent of the
law..

''And. whereas, our slogan, is, The

"Resolved, that we appoint a com
mittee of 12 of the members of this
organization, to be known as 'the slo

duty it shall be to -see that the spirit
of our slogan be realised in fact that
the committee shall solicit informa
tion leading 'o the arrest and convic
tion of those who practice intimida
tion or mob violence upon our citi
zens and others within our borders,
and that the committee shall review
all such information and shall with
their recommendations bring it to the

quarters meeting for. consideration as
to what actlr.n snail be taken. Be it

'Resolved, that' we invite all citi
