FARMER IS TIRED OF SOCIALISM; HE TELLS THE WORLD, TOO
An incident, typical of the anti-Townley meetings, occurred at a meeting at Baldwin, Thursday night when Rev. Birchenough and Frank Streeter, Victory Ticket candidates for lieutenant-governor, addressed the crowd.
After the speeches a farmer walked up and said:
"I believe every word you fellows said. I'm sick and tired of this bank of North Dakota grafting and I don't want anyone classing me with a socialist, nor do I want a socialist state."
With these words he threw his "I'll stick" button into the weeds.

The font and style of this "article" are significantly different than the rest of the newspaper. I believe it is an anti-Nonpartisan League advertisment. "I'll Stick" is a reference to A.C. Townley's quote, "Make the farmers pay their money to join and they'll stick - stick 'til hell freezes over."
