BlIIMARCK, N. I).—That tlie de cision of the United States supreme' court holding the famous seven in dustrial laws constitutional meant the complete collapse of the anti farmer ease in this state is the opin ion of farmer loaders here. ''Throughout I have been of the opinion," declared Governor Fra eier, "tlmt this, would be the final outcome. There was no doubt in my mind that, the only thing the pol itical and financial interests behind the 42 taxpayers' suit could do was to delay the carrying out of the far mers' program. "It is certainly a great relief to have the way. cleared of legal diffi culties! We have nothing to light npw but the interests and the politi cians opposed to the industrial pro gjram, and I am satisfied that tin people of the state will take care of tbe latter on June 30. •'They have voted for the program •Is times and I have no doubt as to the outcome of the seventh elec tion." Hmmtm Argument In commenting on the decision William Lemke, well-Wonwn League attorney, said: "This decision proves conclusive ly that the North Daokia industrial •program is not in violation of the 'constitution of the United States but is in harmony with our form of Government, which is of, by and tot the whole people." Manager J. A. McGovern of the btate Mill and Elevator association believes the decision will enable the bsaociation to greatly enlarge the fccope of its work at once, for it now tan sell the $5,000,000 thorised to pen in bonds au by the legislature in the market. Associate Justice Day. known in Ohio sb a conservative for many years before his appointment to the Supreme court, wrote the opinion 'recording the unanimous decision •ttal parts of which read as fol lows: "In the present instance, under the- authority of a constitution and laws prevailing In North Dakota the people, the legislature and the highest court of the state have de Wa|-ed the purpose for which these' (several acts were pirised to be of i' btollc nature, and withinthe taxing fcotherityoftlie state.

Hinlted action of the people, legisla ture and court, we are not at liber ty to interfere unless it is clear be yond reasonable controversy that rights secured by the federal consti tubion. have been violated. Itwoking law Justilictl "Wa come now to examine the grounds upon which the supreme count of North Dakota held this leg illation not to amount to a taking of property without due process of law. The questions involved were 'given elaborate consideration in that court, and it held concerning what may in general be denominated the 'banking legislation,' that it was Justified for the purpose of provid ing banking facilities and to enable the state to carry out the purpos? of the other acts, of which the Mill and Elevator association act is the principal one. It Justified the Mill and Elevator association act by the -peculiar situation in the state of North Dakota, and particularly by the gteat agricultural industry of that state. It estimated from the facts of which it was authorized to take Judicial notice that 90 per cent of the wealth produced by the stale was from agriculture and stated .'that upon the prosperity and wel fare of that industry other business and pursuits carried on in the state were largely dependent that the state produces 125,000,000 bushel? of wheat each year. The manner in .which the present system of trans portation and marketing of this crop prevents the realization of wha* are deemed Just prices was elabor ately stated. It was affirmed that .the annual loss from this sourcc (including the loss of fertility to the soil and failure to feed the by-pro ducts to stock within the state) amounted to $55,000,000 to the wheat raisers of North Dakota. *'In many instances states and municipalities have in late years seen fit to enter upon projects tc promote the general welfare which in the past have been considered en tirely within the domain of private enterprise. "Under the peculiar conditions: existing In North Dakota, which arc emphasized in the opinion of itt highest court, If the state sees fit te enter upon such enterprises as are here involved, with the sanction of its constitution, its legislature and its people, we are not prepared tc say that- it is within-the authority of this court, in enforcing observ ance of the fourteenth amendment to set aside such action by Judicial decision."

"?r F? ijlji! fi 'f 4 A i# The Farmers'Bunted If Townleyism means the entire League program, as so far enucr.cd into luw and enforce'! under the state administration elected by League farmers, it includes among other things:* 1. Honest weights and measures. 2. Fair grain grades, based on milling 'and baking values. 3. Pay for dockage, o.- its return to the farmer to be usef! lit feeding his animals. 4. State mills' and elevators. 5. State hail insurance, and 6. Farm loans through a state owned bank. Under the laws enacted to carry out these provisions. North Dakota farmers already save each year, us ing even numbers— By the enforcement honest weights and fair grain grades (Dr. Ladd's GS estimate) $12,000,000.00 On grain dockage (Dr. Ladd's. esti mate) 3,000,000.00 On hail insurance premiums (insur ance Commission er's figures) 5,600,000.00 On interest rates on loans so far made by the Bank of North Dakota 50,000.00 On wheat sold to and flour and feed bought from the Drake Mill _____ 40,000.00 Making a total of $20,690,000.00 But opponents of the farmers' or ganization remind them that they have been paying $16.00 every two years in fees for the maintenance ot the League. Counting 70,900 far mers in the state (the report of the Commissioner of Agriculture and Labor gives 66,993), and assuming one league member for each two farms, the total membership fee will be $280,000. A Profitable Investment Opponents of. the League claim that, the farmerp pay 70 per cent of all ropcrt.r taxes. In that case they would pay for 1919, $2,619,S3I.2.r» for state purposes. Subtracting the t.otal of these two amounts from the $20,690,000 a year .which the far liters save through the carrying ont of the program, there remains clear gain of $17,790,169. But "lest we forget," the.Indus program is already setf-a«p porting. and, therefore, is not cost ing farmers or other taxpayers any thing. So that the .difference be tween' what the farmers pay in fees for thfe support of the League and the amount -Sthey save each year by the carrying out of their program fs clear gain_ 'trial If the program had not been en acted into law and the-Nonpartisan League not oYganised the 'farmers would be sustaining an antttnl loss of $20,690,000 less menttKenritiF fees paid 'by League members. The net loss on the products of theit farms would be $20,410,000. If we consider their. $280,000 a year as an Investment we find that it is earning for them at the rate of 7390 per cent a yiear. Rather a good investment— Townleyism—is It not? I IN DEFENSE DU PONT COMPANY Delaware-Senator H«es No Wrong In Plra to Dominate World Three pages of the Congressional Record -were used by Senator Josiah O. Wolcott, of Delaware, in defend ing the Du Pont de Nemours Co (the -American Powder Trust) against an attack recently made in the senate by Senator Charles S Thomas, of Colorado. The Color ado senator charged that these huge combines were .planning in an mega' way to control the- markets of the woirld. Mr. Wolcott took exception to statement by Mr. Thomas that the Du Pont company and Levinstein Limited, of London, had divided the world into two sections, and had made an agreement to monopolise the dye business against All compe titora.
