The Week
Saving the King Business
Holland's refusal to surrender
the Kaiser probably lifts a great
burden from the allied govern
ments. The propaganda put out
during the war makes effort to
punish him necessary. The pub
lic always likes to see a villain
properly finished off in the last
act. But if we remember that
this man is a cousin of the man
who sits on the English throne
and that royalty and nobility is
at a discount everywhere in Eur
ope, we at once see how hard iti
would be for the allies to follow
the rules of popular drama. Hol
land's refusal solves the matter
The discount of royalty has
reached such a point in England
that King George now employs a
publicity man, an American by
the way to see that the king bus
iness gets the proper amount of
favorable public mention. Per­

Residents of Grand Forks, N. D.
who gathered to promote the
sale of state bonds to build the
big state mill and elevators

Men who for years have taken
an antagonistic attitude to the

dried at small expense."
Another declared: "These

prvately owned industries which
will come to oompete to take ad

ter here could scarcely have been
brought about in any other way.
Here we have real town sense
and it is the same kind of sense
the farmer has been talking. A
few years hence the people of
our western towns will marvel
that they are so foolish as to
support a railroad and market
ing system« which robbed them
of local industry and the farmers
of fair returns.
The next wise step for Grand

Grand Forks can escape some
of the present outrageous dis

the Twin Cites and Chcago.
