National Secretary Takes
Stand at Lincoln in Organi
zation's Effort to Restrain
Council of Defense.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Neb., July 2. (Special
Telegram.) Arthur La Seuer, na
tional secretary of the Non partisan
league, was a witness this afternoon
in the proceedings in the district
court in which the league is endeav
oring to restrain the state council of
defense from interfering with the
holding' of league meetings. . The
secretary denied the league was un
patriotic or had unpatriotic motives.
On the stand he said that at differ
ent -times its officers had co-operated
with the government in carry
ing out matters the government de
sired brought before the farmers and
with Mr. Townley, its president, he
had gone to Washington and con
ferred with the departments having
in charge the war activities that the
best results might be brought about.
He denied that organizers of the
league "were seditious in their lan
guage, but said that they were, es
pecially instructed to be careful and
not in any way to use language which
might bring any question that ; the
league was not a patriotic organiza
tion. Two or three organizers,, he
said, had been i discharged because
of their disloyal attitude and one . of
them had already been indicted un
der the sedition act.':
The league attorneys are . assisted
by James Mannahan, former well
known Nebraskan, but of later years
a resident of Minnesota, where he
served his district in congress.
