It has been admitted by the offi
cers of the Grain Growers corpora
tion (Gustafson. president) that the
fellow who was reported to be mtxea
up with Boiling ingetting advance in
formation on the president s message
in war time to work the New York
stock market is their chief advisor.
It now appears that this hundred mil
lion of farmers' money is to be han
dled by twenty-one men. Eleven of
them would hold the majority of the
voting stock with a Wall street gam
bler as their chief adrisor.
Governor McKelvie's paper, the
Nebraska Farmer, both editorially
and otherwise, indorses this grain
marketing scheme. Governor McKel
vie recently appeared on the same
platform with Howard, president of
the farm bureau, at Geneva. Neb.
Howard was advising farmers to buy
stock in this grain pooling corpora
tion that would take a hundred mil
lion of the farmers money and take
over all the grain they would grow
for six years to sell at any price and
at anv time they wished and if a
farmer sold outside they would fine
him 10 cents a bushel on wheat and
i cents a bushel on corn. It is self-
evident that they expect to buy it
cheap or they would not need this
clause in their contract.
It seems that Governor McKelvie
and the attorney general of Nebraska
do not feel that it is their duty to
protect the farmers of Nebraska like
the attornev ceneral of Indiana is
trying to do.
The same sort ot propaganda is
being used to j:et the farmer's money
into this latest grain marketing and
pooling scheme as was used to sell
Skinner Backing company stock to
farmers. McKelvie's paper. Gustaf
son and other Farmer's Union of
ficers were telling the farmer that
they must buy stock and own their
own packing houses, but after they
had worked the packing house deal
threadbare they commenced working
on this new scheme proclaiming all
over the state that the farmers
should own their own terminal ele
vators, etc. They never mention the
fact t hat grain gets out of condition

When our state is reeking with
graft, and all kinds of cash tip-; to
get the farmer's money, it would
seem as though our governor would
pause a moment and look over the
situation and his newspaper would
not encourage the sale of stecks to
farmers in this, one of the wildest
(and probably the largest grafting
scheme! that was ever put atioat.
The people of Nebraska, like the
people in North. Dakota have been,
are helpless to protect themselves.
Our governor, attorney general and
bureau of securities and state bank

that will protect them.
