It has served its purpose as an instructor and educator for thousands of farm ers all over "the country. It has suc ceeded in wiping the old political dust from the farmers' eyes and ifi re placing it with the sweet scent of knowledge.. The farmers possess all the ingredients which go to make a "solid rock," with one exception, the cement. The Leader has acted as the cement to stick us together and made us into a solid foundation for democ racy. :.y STANLEY WOOD. •V Editor Nonpartisan Leader: we only had a newspaper that was fair to the organized farmers, we would have something' that was up and alive. There are hundreds of farmers in*, this region that the League could get if the trvth could be got to them. Hundreds .of.them are in the grasp of Big &iz and can not join at give us their names. GANG POLITICS IN OKLAHOMA The Democratic party of Oklahoma has fallen into its own trap, and the Nonpartisans of the state are laugh ing at it. William'M.' Webster of Roosevelt, Okla., and S. R. Cary of Piedmont have written to the Leader calling attention to the situation. A few years ago the Democrats, being in the majority, and yet fearing the Republican arid Socialist parties, framed a law to prevent any fprty not casting 27t per cent of the last gov ernor's vo'te in a primary election from appearing on the ticket in the general election. The laW was in tended to avoid fusion of parties, but their own game caused fusion. The Republicans got on the ballot 1y a scratch. The Socialists lost, and now the Republicans will get the Socialist vote. The combined vote will equal 144,000, compared to the Democrats' 115,000. Of course, the Democratic machine must find a way out. Now the at torney general thinks the law uncon stitutional and will take it before the supreme court. "Watch the League climb as never before," the Leaguers write. WANTS A FRIENDLY PAPER Newport, Wash. Editor Nonpartisan Leader: As I am a member of the League and a believer in its principles, I re sent the abuse heaped upon us simply because we differ with the editors of the small-town papers. They seem to have a greater grouch against us now since we are stopping these un friendly papers.. I have ordered two of them to discontinue sending their paper and I think there will be more to follow. I would like the names of some friendly papers, preferably some farm paper. I think it would be a good thing if the Leader woiild print tiie names and addresses of all the friendly papers in the state of Wash*\ ington. This will give our members a chance of hitting back at the press that is so unfair to the organized farmers. This 'isnt la pink tea it is a fight to a finish. I am in favor of the League own ing more than one paper. Idaho has control of several small papers. The League is doing excellent work. Keep it up! We will stick! 1" COLORADO NEEDS IT Springfield, Col. ED BALCHELOR.. DONT BITE THAT HAND Ridgeland,tWis.

Editor Minneapolis Tribune: I have received your notice stating that' my subscription has expired and! saying that perhaps I have a good reason for'not renewing. Yes, I have a good reason.
