the west, where the traveling agents 1
of the non-partinnn League were;*

farmer takes tho Time to think over '

may bo generally counted upon tor
withhold hia enthusla. in from any
thing that has too radical a flavor. I s
Especially In the past season or two. 1
his experiences with radical labor r
movements during harvest, and the *
difficulty or securing dependable help
at any time even at exorbitant prices, r
hua made him very reluctant about
upsetting things j i t for the plesure *
of the experiment. The mounting r
tax bill in North D. kota to pay for r

The lesson of all strikes and other *
industrial disturbances is that the 1
cost of them must be paid by the ;
public of which we are all a part. *
•The tax exemption feature of the ;
Federal Farm Loan Act is to he tes- ;
• ted in tho courts. It Is contended '
* that our Constitution does not del :
(gate to the government power to
form organizations for private and
individual profit, loan money at less
than current rates nnd exempt such '■
transactions from all forms of taxu
t ion.
The bonds issued by Farm Loan
Banka, organized under this act are
entirely exempt from taxation and
furui*li .a secure place for investors
seeking to evade income tax.
The act places nnfair obstacles and
hcndicups in the general banking in
dustry which has to carry the load
if the public and industry and pay
regular taxes of all kinds.
The Idea of stuck tax exempt bonds
to furnish money at lens than cost
for private gain, to one class of bor
rowers, is repugnant to all American
ideals. f
I see by the papers that there Is
lots of talk about giving Ireland Its
freedom. Why not give it to them?
They are as mJiich entitled to their
fret dom as the Cecho-Slavs are to
govern their own country. So I
say give it to them and let them
fight It out? among themselves, in
stead of tlie U. S.
They are one of the oldest nntjons
of Europe and better able to tell
what they want than any outside j
nation. They were a nation long!
before Columbus founded our shores,
and some of the greatest men in the
world. We’re proud to say that {
Ireland was our birth place, and I \
believe that there-are many left vet i
who can put Ireland where she be
longs. That is among the leading
nations of the world.
Among the names of those who
are gone are such as Dean Swift,
Samuel Lower. Tom More, Dan O’-
Connell and hosts of others. So,
why in all fairness can we not wish
them to enjoy their freedom as we
enjoy ours.
HThat Ireland may be a free and
happy nation soon. Is the wish of
thousands of Americans.
