WE MAKE THEM JOHNSON STUDIO FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1914 Entered at the postofHce in Beach. Golden Valley Connty, North Dakota as second Class mail matter. HE CHRONICLE PRINTING (Incorporated) j. W. BR1NTON. Editor CO. THE TOWN UNITED During the past two weeks the Chronicle man interviewed practi cally every business house in the city with a view of securing co operation in the coming county seat fight, and we were more than pleased with the result. The town stands united likes and dislikes are going to be cast aside and a generl engagement started all along the line for Beach for the county seat." During the next ten issues this paper intends to put forth its besf efforts along that line and we are pleased to have the solid support of the business men back of us- Our enemies may contin ue their fight against us if they choose, but if they do they are going to be entirely ignored for the next ten weeks, at least, un til the county seat battle is over. We would like to have them join us, and forget their troubles, during the campaign—and boost fcr Beach. We extend them the invitation here- During our canvass on ly three Beach firms, Lovell Bros., Wm. Rosenberg and Nic Weinacht, refused to assist or co operate with the farmers paper in the campaign, but we believe it will be their los3 rather than ours. Because Beach has a few un desirable citizens is no reason why anyone should work against the town because the Chronicle is published in Beach is no reason why our enemies should work for Sentinel Butte, and because the county seat at Beach is going to benefit some of your compet itors more than it will you, is no reason for you to be a knocker. It is a time when we all should join hands, just as we did in the county,1 division campaign—and let the town traitor do his worst as he did to no avail.

Yesterday wheat was $1.25 in Chicgo and was $1.05 in Beach During the afternoon it drop ped 1 cent and today it dropped 4 cents bringing it an even dollar today in the local market. In the wheat pit at Chicago the prices jumped from 7 to 8 cents from one day to the next and the excitement on the board of trade, the dispatch says, ex ceeded anything described in Frank Norris' "The Pit" If a man wants to gamble there is plenty of opportunity now on the wheat market and he won't have to be in the game taiany days to win or lose. It was generally considered that flax was the most dangerous grain to gamble against, but since the war broke out in Europe wheat has put flax in the background and no one knows what it will do next. To sell wheat at a dollar has always been considered good business but in spite of this local men have bought large quanti ties this week with' the local mar ket over a dollar. The present action of the wheat market only goes to prove that the price i9 controlled by the grain manipulators and not by supply and demand- Of course everyone says the war causes the high price, and indirectly it does, but the rise and fall of eight cents in a single day is caused by the gamblers buying and selling on the various boards of trade and not by the war—or the number of men killed in Europe in the present crisis. fapan declared war on Ger many, Austria declared war on Japan while Turkey, Greece and Italy are mobilizing their armies and getting ready to join in the world war. These are some of the happening of the past week. If Mexico will only get agoin, again a few revolutions start in South America, the trusts in the United States would probably find excuse to raise the price again on sugar.

Press Comment CORN THE SAFEST CROP Th.'s year has demonstrated be yond a reasonable doubt that corn is not only a safe crop but a profitable cne- Corn this year spells financial salvation for more than one North Dakota farmer. 1 he perfection of the corn crop is a prelude to divers lied and intensified farming. This state is gravitating slowly toward both. A year like this, when on ail sides the beautiful stand of grain seemed to spell a bumper crop, has its lessons, which in the long run means real progress. It is the corn crop that has come to the rescue in "many parts of the state. Although the Slope country is fortunate in yields of all forms of crop, this year is demonstrating more potently than ever what can be done with corn. The next important question in the selection of seed. Thomas Cooper, director of the North Dakota Agricultural station, is taking special precautions this fall fcr the curing of seed corn. A great deal of attention will be given by the department during the first part of September to seed corn- Last year through the efforts of the field agents, 25,000 bushels of seed corn were select ed and cured in the state. It is hoped that this year will double the aount. Good corn should be seleoted early and with special Through the various seed weeks and other agencies of pub licity, the farmers have been awakened to the necessity in this line. care, corn The success of the corn crop in this state depends upon the se lection of early varieties and vari eties adapted to local conditions. —Bismarck Tribune. OUR DUTY PLAN The duty of the United States is plain in the unfortunate crisis that i3 embroiling all Europe. Neutrality in all things is now and probably will continue the watch word. Our money should not go across the seas to help finance or prolong the carnage. If American banking houses extend credit to France, they can not deny a German, English or Russian loan. Loaning one na tion only would be a breach of neutrality, and to loan all indis criminately would lower our sense of duty in this great con troversy- Inability to finance large war loans will have a decided effect in shortening the war and that is a consummation devoutely to be wished. On the other hand, it is self evident that the United States needs all her cash reserves to fi nance her own commerce and to move the crops which are now ready to be put into the various markets of the world.—Ex hange. Should Sugar Prices Go Up The Sugar Trust is already out with an advance sheet explaining that, because of the outbreak of war in Europe, prices (must go up. Immediately prices began to soar even higher than they usually do in fruit canning time. The circular does not explain, however, that, although the greater part of the world's sugar is produced by the warring countries, only about one per cent of what our country uses comes from them. Don't you really think the argument pretty far feched? Dealers, warehouse men, all who had a supply of stock, certainly were not effect ed by the rise which is to come by and by, and may have a chance now to explain to the United States district attorneys, and possibly to some grand jur ies, just how it calme about. It seems to us a better plan not to raise the prices of necessties until they come up naturally.— Fargo, (N. D-.) Courier News. They should have no chance to explain. There is no explana tion necessary, their act is noth ing short of criminal and should be dealt with as such.—Baker Press.
