Meatlon Leader when writing advertisers
Libeling the Farmers
effort of the Big Business press to discredit the farmers,
chiefly through questioning their patriotism, goes merrily on.
Recently the St. Paul Dispatch published an insulting cartoon,
picturing the farmer as hiding to escape Liberty Bond and Red
Cross solicitors and the income tax collector. From the Dispatch's
point of view it was funny, of course.
At about the same tinie the Salt Lake (Utah) Tribune published
an editorial under the heading, "Criminal Cupidity," charging that
farmers were "grasping" and unpatriotic. This editorial referred to
the loss of much of the potato crop in Idaho through freezing, for which
the farmers, and NOT THE RAILROADS THAT FAILED OR RE
FUSED TO FURNISH CARS, were blamed. Farmers were charged
This is the St. Paul Dispatch cartoon referred to in the accompanying article.
Farmers are grossly insulted by this picturing of a farmer in hiding while Liberty
Loan and Red Cross solicitors and an income tax collector are calling at his farm.
The inference, of course, is that farmers are disloyal—that they hide and try to
escape making patriotic contributions to the government loan and the Red Cross
work, and that they are dishonest enough to try to escape paying legitimate taxes.
The St. Paul Dispatch gets out a weekly edition, called the Farmers' Dispatch.
We do not know whether they printed this cartoon in the weekly edition or not
We doubt if they did, as it was evidently intended for circulation among city
people in the DAILY CITY EDITION of the Dispatch, and not for the farmers
to read in the weekly edition, miscalled the "FARMERS'" Dispatch.
with "hoarding" their potatoes for higher prices, and this was given
as the cause for the freezing of a large part of the crop.
To show the falsity of the charge it is only necessary to ask this
question: Are farmers such fools that they would attempt to hold
their potatoes through frosty weather when they have no adequate
storing facilities and when the potatoes would be bound to freeze?
Because the editoriai in the Salt Lake Tribune and the cartoon in
the St. Paul Dispach are typical of what the Big Business press is
printing almost daily to discredit farmers, especially because they have
dared to organize politically in the Nonpartisan league, the Leader
herewith publishes the cartoon and editorial. The editorial from the
Utah paper is as follows: ...
CRIMINAL CUPIDITY
(From the Salt Lake (Utah) Tribune)
Ward comes from Idaho" Falls to the effect that the farmers in that
vicinity have lost 2^000,000 bushels of potatoes by freezing. Were it not,
for the fact that the country is in sore need of food-stuffs of all kinds,
most people would be inclined to rejoice that the grasping grangers have
sustained such a heavy financial loss. According to the story received in
Salt Lake, the farmers refused to sell their potatoes at current prices
when they were harvested. 'When they discovered that the tubers were
not going up they attempted to rush their crops to market. It was too
late. They had been counted out and cars could not be obtained for ship
ment. The loss is a sad blow to the whole country, for it will have a
tendency to add to the high cost of living, and the only consolation to the
consumers will be in the fact that the men responsible for it are out of
pocket. The tendency among the farmers of the United States to keep
their potatoes out of market rn the hope of obtaining extortionate prices
was observed by one of the Cudahys of the well known family of meat
packers some time ago, and Kb expressed the opinion'that as an enormous
crop of potatoes was harvested this year, the farmers who "held back
would not receive to exceed 50 cents a bushel for the' tubers in the spring.
Mr. Cudahy, however, credited the farmers with having sense enough to
protect their potatoes from freezing, which does not appear to have been
the case up in Idaho.
"Thy money perish with ,thee," said the Apostle Peter to Simon the
Sorcerer, when the latter sought to purchase the power of the Holy Ghost.
The men of today who are attempting to gather much wealth at the ex
pense of the great body of their fellows because the war gives them an
opportunity to put on the screws, will make the same discovery as that
made by-Simon the Sorcerer, that gold is not all-powerful. 'Also they will
find out, unless we are much mistaken, {hat their punishment will not be
delayed until the day of judgment.
