Sunday morning the Daily Oklahoman mid that the

That was llic amount of the bond issues which the
legislature and the people authorized, thc sale of the
greater portion of which was canceled when Governor
Frazier, Attorney General Lemke and Labor Commis-
sioner Hagen were recalled.
Monday morning the Oklahoman said state bonds
were valueless in North Dakota, that not a single guar-
anteed six per cent bond could be sold, and that postoffice
money orders and express money orders became the me-
dium of exchange in North Dakota when the crash came
and the Hank of North Dakota closed its doors.
The truth is, and thc Oklahoman knoits it—but delib-
erately, wantonly and maliciously lies about it—that sev-
eral hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of these bonds
were sold at par and the rest were contracted at par, and
the Okalioman knows that the difficulty encountered in
selling these bonds was due to the boycott of the money
trust, organized and instituted by the repudiated, but pow-
erful Independent Voters' League, which had been or-
ganized, also on a nonpartisan plan, to defeat the irill of
The Daily Oklahoman knows very well that the Hank
of North Dakota has NEVER AT ANY TIME CLOSED
ITS DOORS, but is still doing a prosperous business in
spite of all the underhanded and malevolent conspiracies
which Dig Business, from time to time, have organized
against it. They did succeed in breaking the Scandinavian
Dank, a bank organized by individual members of the
League, and this by a series of dastardly plots, too long
and intricate to relate, but the Dank of North Dakota, the
state bank, not only never closed its doors, but is pros-
pering and making money for the state and saving mil-
lions of dollars for borrowers, by compelling the private
banks of the state io compete with it, thus affording the
people an opportunity to secure money without paying
usurious rates for it.
Hut let's think of Oklahoma, perfectly governed and
faultlessly free Oklahoma, a state untainted with the ma-
lign influences (?) of the League, a state which has been
ruled by the political banks, by the railroads, the insur-
ance companies, thc grain and cotton thieves and specu-
lators—ruled according to the will of the Daily Oklaho-
man—a state whose people are doomed and damned to

In Kansas, merchants as well as
farmers are helping the shopmen, as
reports show. At Parsons, one of the
most important rail centers of that
state, merchants were especially ac-
tive an official report from the un-
ion headquarters shows.
"The merchants are unloading
provisions at our headquarters to-
day," the report reads, "such as cab-
bage, beans, and other vegetables,
I and one merchant donated 25 sacks

j our headquarters looks more like a

as returns came from outlying sec-
