and Wheat Price.
T T is safe to say that the average farmer in Umatilla county
1 - or elsewhere in Eastern Oregon was not aware that wheat
price guaranteed by the government during the war was
too high.
The quite general impression has been that the wheat price
was not excessive. It may have been too low but the guaranty
did have the effect of assuring the farmer such returns that he
could afford to push his acreage to the limit. He did that and
the world was the gainer thereby.
But in the senate Mr.- Harding, now candidate for president,
opposed the wheat guaranty and he said some things that souad
unfair to the man on the soil. In a speech in the senate on July
20, 1917, he said: " ;
"I thare the anxiety to strike at greed. I should like to
ttrike at the greed for power. It would be agreeable to strike
at the manifest greed in some of the agricultural sections of the
United State.
"I do not think it ($2.26 wheat) will bring the desired result
but I venture to say, Mr. President, that if the qualities of Amer
ican patriotism are such that we must guarantee the American
farmer a price for his wheat in the face of a world famine then
there is not patriotism enough in the country to win the war.
The strange thing about the Harding atitude in the senate is
that he was willing to strike it what he termed "manifest
greed in agricultural sections but he was wholly unwilling to
strike at the greed of the oil companies, the fuel trust or other
Mg beneficiaries of war conditions. He failed to vote on an
amendment to include petroleum and its fuel products in the
food control act. He voted against an amendment to include
ere and its productss, farm implements and binding twine. He
opposed the Cuminings amendment to prohibit the importation
of alcoholic beverages and the withdrawal of bonded distilled
spirits during the war. ,
Senator Harding was also a bitter opponent of the farm loan
set which brought about lower interest rates on long time farm

A ?ARIS correspendent sends an extraordinary telegram to
his local organ of light and leading concerning the ghost
of Marie Antoinette. That ill starred lady might have
thought that by this time she would be allowed to rest in peace
but this alert young gentleman has flushed her ghost again in
Versailles Park, in the shape of a veiled lady in black taking
lonely walks alter nightfall, just as she did in 1911, when the
Agadir matter threatened France with war.
The supplementary part of this almost alarming report is
. even more significant of a disturbed spirit or a disordered
rnmd ; the correspondent proceeds : "Several tourists, while vis
iting the park and in the vicinity of the Petit Trianon, distinctly
feaw a tigure, clad in the costume of Marie Antoinette s day,
gamboling under the ancient trees." Now, with all due regard
to the exigencies of a correspondent s life and standing-, it is iir
possible to escape the conclusion that this correspondent had
ueen dreaming, or at least there is as much reason to believe 11
his dreaming as in Marie Antoinette's gamboling. At a time
when the world of liviner men and women is standing on its head
it is doubly distressing to hear of historic personages returning

farming. I have followed the oradte
senators, with a rake, when wheat was
sold for 40 cents a bushel. That was
in the day when farming' was someth
ing of a contest for subsistence. In
this latter day farming has become
in occupation for profit and I happen
to know that under normal conditions,

cupation, perhaps not to the- farmer

Senator Harding not only spoke
against the interest of the agricul
tural classes as in the above cases,
but he voted against relieving agricul
tural corporations from income taxes,
although he opposed levying increased
taxes on the great corporations of the
country and on war profits. i: .

Opposed to that record. Cox lead
ers point to the progressive governor's
action in a case of two in Ohio. There
was a shortage of seed corn. It was
sold to farmers at prices near '20 a
bushel. Governor Cox went into other
states, secured the corn, and sold it to
the agriculturists at $3.00 a bushel.
In another instance there was a
shortage of farm labor. There was
danger of huge loss to the agricultur
ists. The state, under the direction
of Cox, put 6000 tractors in the fields
and established a tractor school. "

Cox headquarters insist, leave no ques

relation of government to farmers. His
