She said that the
grange was accused of indulging in par
tisan politics ami she wap almost afraid
tnal it was so. She thought that the
grange should l»e allowed to discuss
different political topics, but they should
not pass resolutions favoring or not,
such topics. One can discuss such sub
jects ami enlighten themselves ami
others in grange, but it is not m cessary
to pass resolutions or vote on the sub
ject ami thus commit the grange to
