Washington, Jj. C, July 28. Radical
ism In the Washington state grange
and in the granges of one or two
other northwest states as voiced by
wuiiam iiouck at a recent state con
vention of grangers at Colville, Wash.,
is deeply deplored by national grange
Of all the farmers" organizations
represented in Washington the grange
proceeds by the most conservative
course. It seeks to accomplish noth
ing by attacks upon either the gov
ernment or reputable leaders in the
public life of the nation. Its repre
sentatives sit down across the table
from senators and representatives
who have to do with shaping agrarian
legislation and point out what in
their opinions will be best for the
farmers and the nation.
At the same time they serve as a
check to representatives of other
farm organizations who advocate
socialism in either a'small or a large
way. Up to this time the grange,
which is represented here by Pro
fessor Thomas C. Atkeson, has de
clined to enter any conference of
farm organizations where there was
the least hint of starting a revolu

Professor Atkeson is an economist.
not a propagandist. He has never
sought, all those who know him best
assert, to make money out of the
farmers'" movement. He has sought
only to help and in doing so has
proceeded always by the constructive
and not the destructive method, his
admirers eay. He does not believe
that the farmers can suddenly be
lifted out of a slump by artificial
means such as some of the legislative
programmes now pending propose.
No man is more welcomed before
the committees on agriculture of the
senato and house than Professor
Atkeson, because he comes, members
of those convnittees say, with sugges
tions which show earnest thought in
stead of devoting his testimony to
raving about the efforts or Wall

National Master Lowell thought It
necessary once more to define the
fine principles of Americanism upon
which the grange was founded.
Grange Ideals Voiced.
In a message to all the members
of the national grange, delivered
through the July issue of the National
Grange Monthly, Mr. Lowell said:
"No finer group of Americans lives
than our grange folks, and the fact
that here and there occasional in
stances of disloyalty appear only
serves to emphasize the splendid
American spirit and action of the
great whole. At the same time we
must have a clear understanding that
there is no place in our great fra
ternity for a single man or woman
in any state who will not line up
absolutely and all the- time behind
everything that is American and in
support of all that .makes for the
best future of this great republic.
Any move in any other direction,
any utterance that does not ring true
to the flag, any attempt to use the
grange name or to exercise grange
influence in any other direction, is
unworthy of the teachings of our or
der and should be followed by the
severest punishment it is possible to
"It makes no difference who the
offender may be the humblest mem
ber anywhere or one pledged to ac
tive leadership there is no place in
the grange for any member or for
any officer who is not all-American-in
speech, in thought, in action and
in Influence; and so lar as it n .
the power of the national grange to
prevent it no such person is going
to be tolerated within our fraternity.
"Long before there was any world
war, before one was thought of, the
grange was proclaiming anu. iivius
real American principles; its organic
law has long required the display of
the Stars and Stripes in every legal
grange meeting in every state: and
the programmes of thousands of
granges have put emphasis upon the
teaching of Americanism unfaltering
obedience to organized law, recogni
tion Ml the rule of the majority, sin
cere devotion to the government of
the United States and unwavering
support of all of its purposes."

purse seines against Carl E. Shoe
maker, master fish warden, and John
Larson, deputy warden, on the grounds
that Judge Eakin is prejudiced in the
The motion is based on en affida
vit of John Larson, who says he be
lieves Judge Eakin is prejudiced
against him as one of the defendants
and that the defendant cannot have a
fair and impartial trial before him.
Larson says also the nature of the
case is such that a change of venue
from this county cannot be secured,
and he therefore asks for the appoint

The plaintiffs procured a tempo
rary injunction a few days ago re
straining the defendants from inter

in the Columbia river during the Sun

A report has been current on the

of that organization had been called
to'consider the advisability of under

BAKER, Or., July 28. (Special.)
Enough ore is in sight at the Gem
mine at Susanville to keep a 60-ton
mill busy for a year, according to
Miles Belden, who has returned from
an inspection trip.
The Gem Mining company is op
erating the mine, a large gold pro
ducer, and more than $70,000 has been
spent in its development, according
to E. A. I. Smith, secretary of the
company. Many of tne stocKnoiaers
are Portland residents.
Mr. Belden was a chemist with the
Oregon Smelting & Refining company
which had charge of the bumpter
smelter before it closed some years
ago.- Fourteen years ago Mr. Belden
left this section to accept a position
with the Santa Fe-railroad in- eopper
development in Mexico. : Ho is a
graduate of the Oregon Agricultural
college school of mines and has fol
lowed the metallurgical work in prac

and in Alaska.

predicted that the mining industry
in Baker county will be the greatest
in the country, basing his opinion on
the fact that- most of the mines
already developed are preparing to

The Gem mine, 23 miles from Austin

Over 2000 feet of veins, averaging
six feet in width have been de

foot shaft connecting- the levels. The
mine is equipped with the usual build

The Gem includes ten patented
mining claims. The ore has tested
about 95 per cent gold and 65 per
cent silver and it has been estimated
that the annual profit of the company
would be tll5,000.
Officers of the company are: G. E.
Smith of Grant county, president; J.
H. Dunston, who will have charge of
the work at the mine, vice-president,
and E. A. L. Smith, secretary. , The
company has opened offices in Baker.

company at the North Fork of Rock

company is drilling a third tunnel
and if it proves to be as rich with
gold as the first two, these men said
the mine would prove one of the rich
