fact is not liable to hurt Wljitted's
playing in the slightest, as he is a
man who works harder for the team
than for himself. Pittsburgh is well
fortified in having Stengel, Jackson
and Bigbce, but no matter how we
strike an average of the three it does
not make the team look strong. The
Cubs are weakest and left field is
liable to remain, a weak spot, although
Mann can do fairly well out there and
Flack can "field and throw. '.
vThe lineup is -not' formidable, but
its defensive 'strtngth is above aver

that the center fielders contribute
much more to the offensive 'strength
than do their brothers in left.

William Potter, fuel administrator
for Pennsylvania, in a letter to the
Nebraska fuel administration, states
is opinion that this section of the
country shrould be taken care of with
bituminous coal and should be per
mitted, to have anthracite coal only
out of what surplus left after
the regular anthracite region shall
have been supplied.
recently a committee of three men
was appointed by the federal admin
istration to regulate the output of the
anthracite fields 'ins the eat and to
allot such Quantities of hard coal to
given districts as may be absolutely
necessary. , ;
Mr, Potter, m his letter to Mr. Ken-
nedy,,says he has bent every effort
toward obtaining the present ruline
from Washington namely, no anthra
cite shall g"o out of the Buffalo Gate
ways to Lower Canada, the vest and

plus as may accrue after the regular
anthracite region has been supplied.

Townley's Deal'" With Anar
chists Rejected by Farmers
of North Dakota Last
, Summer.
Wahoo, Neb. April 5- To' the
Edtior of The Bee: Those who have
been fighting the Nonpartisan
league in North Dakota claim that
its leaders have tried to affiliate the
Industrial Workers of the World
with the league. I have never heard
of any of the league denying that
statement. There seems to bey a
good deal of evidence with which
Townley and his associates could be
convicted of being a good deal more
closely associated with the Idustrial
Workers of the World than the farm
ers of Nebraska care to be. I want
to give your readers a ,few facts on
that point.
Arthur LeSeuer has been, from the
beginning, "and is now, one of the
attorneys for the league and perhaps
the chief counselloj of Townley him
self. In fact it is said that he is now
manager of publicity for the league.
LeSeuer was - active with the In
dustrial Workers of the World in the,
riots at Minot, N. D., a few years
LeSeuers's Deal With I. W. W.
I have in may possession a phamph
let printed which states' that at
a meeting of the Industrial Workers
of the World last summer a' motion
was made and carried as follows:
"That we give thefloor to Arthur
LeSeuer to explain what grounds are
on which we can meet and come to
an understanding ,with the Non
partisan league in regard to work
ing conditions in the harvest fields
of North Dakota. Carried."
Arthur LeSeuer made the follow
ing statement: "That farmers of
North Dakota would be willing to
pay a wage of $5" for a 10-hour day.
Also that if we can c6ie to some
understanding with the Nonpartisan
league of North Dakota, it will mean
the balance of power will be shifted
from the state government to the In
dustrial Workers of the Vorld and
the Nonpartisan league."
On June 2 the daily paper, owned
by the Nonpartisan league of Fargo,
N, D., announced that a committee
had been appointed from the Nonpar
tisan league to meet a committee from
the Industrial Workers of -the World
for the purpose of carrying out the
LeSeuer proposition.
Repudiated by Farmers.
It is only fair to the North Da
kota farmers to say that they re
pudiated the proposition which Town
ley had tried to make, and there was
such severe criticism of it that Town
leylwas obliged to repudiate it him
self. 4
A little more evidence along
this line might be interesting. In
'Solidarity,' the official organ of the
Industrial Workers of the World,
published in Chicago, June 21, 1917,
the following matter appeared:
The tentative agreement between
the Nonpartisan league and the Ap
ricultural Workers Industrial union,
No. 400. was drafted ly joint com
rryttees selected to represent both
organizations. It is 'expected that this
agreement will cover, the harvest
season. That it will establish for the
time in the harvest fields a uniform

"Our men in the trenches and on

nothing and are maintaining the high
est . standards of American manhood
and heroism. It is our privilege at
home to sacrifice and sacrifice and
sacrifice to provide the government
with the means to carry on the war.
No man who values his freedom and
loves the principles upon which our
government was established can af
ford to not contribute the limit to the
third Liberty loan."
Secretary Lansing of the State de
partment: "The United States hai
been at war for a year. The firs',
enthusiasm, which followed the dec.
laration that we would take up arm;
in the cause of liberty and justice hat
passed, but in its place, there has corn
to the nation a spirit of determination
and self-sacrifice.- Under the influ
ence of this spirit the republic is
pressing forward to the accomplish
ment of the mighty task which this
war has imposed upon it. Let there
be the same patriotic response to th
third Liberty loan that wasmade-tc
those which preceded it."
Secretary McAdoo of the treasury;
"The least duty we can perform an c
we should be eager and happy to per
form it is to lend our money, every

to our government in order that our
gajlant sons may be ,supplied with all
they need to save America."
Attorney General Gregory: "To
save the lives and liberty of ourselves
and our children, we have been forced
unwillingly to take up arms. To pre
vail we must dedicate to the farthest
limit our every power. Shall we give
