INTERSTATE BUSINESS COLLEGE 809 Broadway Fargo, N. D. W. H. Bergherm Props. O. C. Hellman GETTING THEIR EYES OPEN Perham, Minn., Aug. 5, 1917. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: The world moves, and sometimes the inhabitants thereof. This date was proof of that. Organizer Munger of the Nonpartisan league advertised a League meeting at the Vandeventer sum mer resort at the inlet of the Little Pine lake, and no gathering of such vast proportions ever assembled in the neighborhood of Perham. The Lake Park band furnished music. It is safe to say there were from 1000 to 2000 cars besides all kinds of teams, which would mean 5000 or 6000 people. E. R. Meitzen of St. Paul, and Mr. Meitzen, editor of the German section of the Leader, both delivered address es. Speaker Meitzen entered into his subject with a vim, and was well re ceived by the vast audience, which was composed of merchants, bankers, and professional men, as well as farmerst although the farmers were a big ma jority. Farmers came from a radius of 50 miles. They are certainly getting their eyes opened, and they will be in no particular hurry to close them again. The speakers drove some telling re marks home, and were frequently ap plauded. The farmers are ready for the change, and they are determined to get it and determined to "stick". More such meetings are needed so that both farmers and consumers will be come educated in the principles of the Nonpartisan league. PAGE TWO Pushing the League Along SAM G. WALLACE. TEXAS WANTS HELP Hallettsville, Texas. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: I received copies of the Leader and after reading same I am able to say you men "go to it" for you are sound ing the keynote for industrial freedom and equal rights to all alike. When can you let that wave strike Texas? God speed the day. We are hustling down here we want help we need it. Hurry up. J. A. M'KENZIE. A SUGGESTION Perth, N. D., Aug. 3, 1917. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: At a meeting of the Home Defense league of this village a resolution waa passed instructing the clerk to write you people as a precautionary measure against fires destroying grain fields, to insert in your paper a suggestion that farmers plow a fire guard around their fields—that is after the grain is cut and in the shock. In doing this it would be necessary to set the shocks on the outside of the fields in a rod or two and then make a few rounds with the plow, and we believe it would be a great help in stopping afire if one should occur. This would not entail very much ex tra work and we believe it would be quite a protection for the farmer him self as well as his neighbors. H. A. HAINES, Sec. OFFICIALS MAKING GOOD The efficacy of the attorney gen eral's office in the enforcement of law is being thoroughly demonstrated under the administration of Governor Frazier. One would search in vain the records of late administrations—or those/more remote, either—to find an officer who has performed his duties with more zeal and courage than Attorney General Langer is doing. He is enforcing the. law for sure. He is enforcing it suc cessfully even in spite of the indif ferent and passive attitude of local officials towards their immediate du ties and their lack of co-operation. His recent raid on the prohibition law violators in Grand Foijts and on the brewery on the east side and the success of it proves the good work that can be done in this regard, when the sentiment of the people is for law and order. His acts meet with approval except from the Grand Forks Herald, which believes the raid should have been made in the day time instead of at night. The people approve Langer's strict law enforce ment policy.—GAZETTE-NEWS, Park River, N. D. SCARED The politicians of the two old par ties are begining to feel alarmed over the activity of the Nonpartisan league, the farmers' organization that cap tured North Dakota, in Nebraska. Organizers are busy In this state. During the, last few weeks Antelope and Madison counties were organized in addition to other northeastern counties previously put tntjo shapes It is in that section of the state that the work is being vigorously prose cuted.—SIOUX CITY Oa.) TRTBUNH As to League conditions around here, I will say those fellows outside the League are trying to make the farmers believe that we have gone over to the 1. W. W. and are trying to help them fix an exorbitant wage, but I am of the opinion that they are not getting by with any of that bunk. The president of the League will give but three addresses in the state, speaking in Mitchell, Sioux Falls and Madison. Farmers and their wives drove in from many of the surrounding coun ties to hear the address, Hanson sending over a good delegation. That county has just formed an organiza tion of 400 farmers to support the Non partisan league.—ABERDEEN (S. D.) DAILY NEWS. WHO GETS THE $3,317 This spring a southern farmer raised some potatoes and sold them to a local shipper. Being of a curious turn of mind, he cut one of the potatoes in half hollowed it out, and enclosed in it a note asking the ultimate consumer to write him and tell him bow much ths cost to her was. The ultimate con'* sumer was a woman, whcU found the note and wrote to the jgrower, telling him that the potatoes cost her ?4 a bushel. He wrote her. that he received 69 cents a bushel for them. Thirty-one cents would mean consid» erable freight to pay on a bushel ot potatoes. Who got the "other $3T This is a question that underlies the prevailing unrest, and must be answer* ed satisfactorily if we would have Justice to all and -no food riots in this country. —WHITE ROCK JOURNAL. ••rn CROPS A FAILURE Lansford, N. D., Aug. 4, 1917. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: Presuming you are interested in crop conditions, I will say that our crop all through this locality is practically nothing. On 40 acres of timothy mea dow last year, I cut 60 tons of hay. This year I got just one ton. Three or four bushels of wheat to the acre will be a good average. The straw is about six inches long. Rye will go about the same as wheat. The straw of oats and barley is very thin, and so short we can hardly cut it at all. Will have to use headers or flax attachments on it and on the wheat too. Of flax, there is none at all. I don't know how we will be able to winter our horses and cattle this year. WILLIAM MARTIN. A LEAGUE PICNIC Bierman, N. D., July 23, 1917. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: On July 31 about-130 people gathered at the H. T. ranch for a Nonpartisan league picnic. Governor Frazier and Attorney General Langer were speakers of the day. Both spoke out under the grove. The band played several pieces and the speeches were good. The farmers are very enthusiastic about the League's progress and much interest was "taken in the talks made by the governor and attorney general. MILBERN CLENDENEN. CROWD HEARS TOWNLEY Probably 1,500 men and women as sembled at the corn palace building Thursday evening to listen to an ad dress by A. C. Townley, president ot the Nonpartisan league of North Dako ta. C. A. Boreson of Tobin township, presided over the meeting and while waiting for the crowd to assemble, W. B. Ronald occupied a few minutes in telling about the new political party and why he is giving it his support. Mr. Ronald introduced the speaker of the evening as a man whom he be lieved had the solution at hand and whom he believed' to be conscientious in his efforta Mr. Townley"s address was given the closest attention throughout and he was frequently interrupted with applause. Starting practically alone in the building of the Nonpartisan league, he declared that it was now becoming a national organization, reaching over the western states, which meant a sweeping in of the farmers' legislation in the west. OTHERS GOT $1.40 Since the pioneer days North Dako* ta has been filling the world bread basket with products of 52 wheat and only received 80 cents for it.—NEW, ROCKFORD (N. D.) TRANSCRIPT.
