Ground is being broken at Fargo now for the first houses to be put up. by the state for home builders. At Grand Forks 100 men- and 50 teams are at work all day long. They have already excavated -a basement for the mill, 580 feet long, 42 feet wide and 16 feet deep, and are now digging the excavations for the. great cleaning house arid giant storage* tanks. Soon, with the beginning of concrete work, there will be 500 workers on the job. The contract calls for the completion of construction work October 31". Machin ery will be installed imme diately when the construc tion work is completed and the great electrically oper ated elevator and flour mill will be ready for the first North Dakota wheat by January 1, 1921—IF The big IF is this: If the. people, at the primary election of June 30, 1920, .win their tenth big victory. PAGE FOUR hp There has been little reason to doubt any"such victory and there is less reason now that the su-^* preme court of the United States has delivered itap .epoch-making verdict that the will of the people iafe supreme. Before the ^decision was rendered the I. V. A.s of^Nqrth Dakota were telling the farmers "The League has bunked you. You can't build the elevator and mill. The supreme court you'jt let l.c you." But now that the decision has come, the opposi- & tion to the League again has been proved in the?|$ wrong. HOW LANGER TRIED |r TO "THROW" THE CASE® William I^ang^r, elected as attorney general by the farmers, Tonly to turn against them in- an at- If tempt to get further glory for himself, isjhe oppo sition candidate for^governor. Langer claims to be friendly to the mill and elevator, the Bank of North Dakota and the "Home Building association—but he is Supported by every newspaper and politician that •. has been fighting the farmers' movement from the" time if started, and his own record, in addition, shows his attempt to kill the state enterprises while pretending to favor them. Langer and his deputies recently appeared be fore the supreme court of the United States,, nomi nally to defend the North- Dakota industrial pro graA. Mistrusting him, the industrial commission. of North Dakota authorized Attorneys F. A. Pike and William Lemke to appear in behalf of the peo ple. The supreme court alloweid attomeys^wb hours on each side. Langer's 4iien agreed to divide the state's time equally with Pike and Lemke. Instead of keeping their agreement Langer*s men talked 90 minutes arid devoted practically -all this time to arguing that the supreme court of the United States and the supreme court of North Dakota had no jurisdiction in the case—a ridiculous assumption. Only about 25 minutes was left for Mr. Pike arid Mr. Lemke. In this short time Mr. Pike set forth, as clearly as the time allowed, the real argument in favor of the industrial laws—which was that ttia legislature of North Dakota^ the supreme court of North Dakota and the people of North Dakota wero the best judges of wlit^^s. good for Nprth Da« %m m1M.'
