asked condemning Japanese coloni

during tho noon recess today. It
was strongly Indicated that the sen
timent of the Orange would fee
Btrongly in favor of such action.
Interest today centered about thn
work of tho canvassing committee,
which spent the morning and early
afternoon In going over the sUla
referendum vote on tho higher offi
cers of the organization. Prelimi
nary reports indicated that C. E.

Aiming against any change In -tie

turo of the organization was taken
by State Master C. E. Spenco when la
his report yesterday afternoon cover
ing tho activities of tho past year, he
declared that the Qrauge Is stronger
than ever before. In spirit. If not ta
numbers, and that Its financial con
dition will permit a moro aggressive
extension campaign.
Mr. Spence Bpoke vigorously
against uny attempt to regulate "big
business" by law, asserting that the
only satisfactory method of at
taining this end Is through cooper
ation between producer and consum
er. "It Is hoped that through an ex
change between Farmer and Labor
cooperative associations, much of the
present cost of distribution can be
eliminated," he said.

Touching . on. the present condi
tion of unrest he urged tho removal
of tho cause, rather than tho treat
ment of symptomatic conditions.
"The only way to keep men from ag
itating against grievances is to re
move the grievances," ho said. "The
seed of revolution is repression. The
real antfdoto for tho unrest which
manifests Itself Is not suppression,
but a deep consideration of the
wrongs which beset our natural ilfe,
and the application of a remedy."
The speaker emphatically stated
thnt the Grange U In no sense u polit

erated legislative measures which
ho declared should havo tho support
of tho organization. Amendment of
tho stato rural credits law to pormit

revision of the auto llcouso schedule
as regards new high-priced cars, a
graduated land tax upon oxcosslvo
holdings, a state income tax, abol
ishing discrimination in prices, or

and amendment of the land registra
