GOOD FOR EVIL
(Editorial in Kensal (N. D.) Progress)
i| Begardless of the fact that the majority
:of small business mien throughout North
-/Dakota7/opposed the Nonpartisan move
4meht and were even discourteous on
^Lynn J. Prazier's introductory visits this
^magnanimous public man is planning an
adtninistration which \vill_be a direct
ibenefit to the whole state. -His campaign
•'•-iwas made .on a platfiorm of political and
economic reform with special" 'intention
to promote the state handling of farm
produce in the finished products of mill
and pacldng plant.
In the .infancy of the Nonpartisan,
movement the League appealed to the
merchants of .the small towns to co-oper
ate with the farmer, believing that the
more money made by the farmers, would
mean a ''general prosperity. Begardless
of the non-support of the commercial
factios. Lynn lS»zier ifow Appeals to ^04
commercial clubs' asking -for ideas for
legislation which will benefit small busi
tiess men, and civic organizations.

Instead of publishing & new paper and going into dii^t competition for busi-.
ness with the evening and morning Newspapers of Fargo—and a daily news
paper depends largely upon local advertising for its existence—the:Nonpjartisan
Publishing Company has purchased the Fargo CourierrfTews. This not only
assures a better field for the'Nonpartifan-Daily, but it disposes j^J^^itterest
enemy_the Nonpartisan League and itscause had in the state.
So the Courier-News Becomes the Noripartisan
The new Courier-News—the Nonpartisan daily—will be a real newspaper.
It will have the best news services, a will print the news of the world every
day all the stock and grain market quotations, sports, etc. It will be the: best
newspaper that reaches your part of the country—and it will be your news-
paper—AND (mark this) IT WILL PRINT NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.
