Acmrican. n- coit so .n- hau* $ ho flr*i ox c.'uii month. There is a great deal of talk around town about a press report appearing in the Standard entitled "The Cen tra'via Affair." Now let us make our Külves pi a in. Firs-., the article as it jappcaied in the Standard was a press report that came out in papers all iovei' the ec.r. *.". Second, we belived l.'r. the ballo!, in law and order, wo fr.re opposed to raids and mob rule, wo jiondem ail manner of violence and awl'-Esnezs and will use all the power vo have to »-top the t' aching or con •j'.mii ef direct action coming from any source. Now then, if the report of the coroner's jury in the articlo was untrue, we are sorry it ever ap peared in the Standard. If it is true we are glad we have not been mis led into priming something that was untrue, for it's the truth we are seek ing and intend to print. I-AWS AM) TilK l.KACiUK Laws is a rule of action laid down by authority. Authority can conic from only two sources, God and man. So we have two kinds of laws. The laws of God, natural laws, and man made laws. Natural laws are fixed laws that man cannot escape. If he seeks, finds and studies them lie can use them to his own well being. If he through the lack of knowledge, or willfully dis obeys them lie must suffer. Man mad? laws are rule« o£ action, that determine the relationship of one individual to another, or any group of individuals to all other groups. They are not fixed laws but are being in seven words, is epit omized the ideals of service animating the men who direct the of the Stand ard Oil Company (Indiana). Maxi mum service is the only foundation upon which Big Business may rest securely. It is this ideal which has impelled the Company to ceaseless effort in multiplying the number of products produced from crude petroleum, each to fulfill a definite, useful service not to the few, but to humanity. Only private initiative and enter prise, willing to hazard time, money, ingenuity, and effort to gain a prom ising but uncertain benefiit, could have developed the many products manufactured by the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) for the service of the people. In the conduct of its business, the Stand •fd Oil Company (Indiana) always has recognized the four fundamental interests in all industry—capital, labor, manage ment, and the public. 'Because of this, and because it has striven /to prepare every product as nearly perfect as ingenuity, integrity and earnest effort can make it, this Company has been able to approximate its ideal of the greatest service to the greatest number. -h 1 .- -r I 5 Standard Oil Company (Imiimi) 91Ö S. Michieaii Ave., Chicago 'a -If«7 to spend about a bil-1 changed as conditions change, and Grand Forks conditions change aa man discovers and uses natural laws. When man does not make hi« law fit the new conditions, brought about by the new discovery of natural laws, things are out of order and bound to go wrong. Let us suppose we think a territory is best for stock raising. A "free range" law is the proper and best fitted at that time for that territory. Iater we find the coun try is bc-ät adapted to Earmiug, we start our agricultural pursuits with out changing the "'free range" law to a "herd law." What happens? There is a continual strife between the ranchers and the "sod busters." Now we of the Non-partisan League claim our present laws do not fit present conditions, that tehv are out of harmony with the laws of God. President Wilson in "The New Freedom" says: "We are in the piee ence of a new organization of society. Our life has broken away from the past. We have changed our economic conditions, absolutely, trom top to bottom and with our economic society, the organization of our life. The old political formulas do not (It present problems: they read now like documents taken out of a forgotten age." A hundred year« ago farming was the chief and about the only industry. At that time each community sufficed for itself. The community village was the trading and industrial center for that community. The tanner after supplying his own needs out of his own products, took the surplus to the tillage store and traded or sold 'it. The village merchant in turn traded or sold it to some one whom the farm er was likely to meet the next day. The farmer traded directly, through the merchant, with the consumer. To-day we have great industrial centers, made possible by the advent of the rail road, and necessary thru the evolution of the hand tools to the great machine. The gramUon of the old time miller is now in some great milling center. The old time village shoe maker is now working in some great shoe factory. The village blacksmith, wheel wright is now in some great factory. The girl who used to spin the cloth and fashion the home spun clothes, is now in a tex tile mill or sweat shop. In fact the workers in the great centers of popu lation are nothing more than the grand children cf the old time com munity with its village center. You ask how about the old time village merchant? The five percent 'that did not go broke during the transition are still here, our local merchants. But now he has lo,tiling to say about (he price at which he buys, and ve-ry little to cay r.bout the price for wh'ch he sells. The whole trr.nsaci.ion of trade, so far as price is concerned, has been taken away from the producer, the locc.1 merchant vnü the consumer. This state of affairs lias been brought about through the evolution of ma chinery, cauJc.5 industry to be cen tralized, and the railroads making it possible fov the producer and con sumer to be thousands of miles apart. So we cont(.:id, thr.t with the old order, when industry was crude, small, confin.id to small communities and carried on by individual effort, the law of individual ownership of the industries w-.-.a right and fit the con ditions of -tlV3 *imc. But now industry is confined to whole country, and many caocs itak.es in. the whole world, is so largo that individual ef fort has been sub plant cd by collective effort, and wiitli itlm new order, the new law, of tlio collective ownership, will fit and harmonize with the new age.
