Transcription"Recently the people of North Dakota have been told that there is a new 'organization' known as the 'Good Government League' in the field to fight the Nonpartisan League. There's not a word of truth in it. The Old Gang has made itself a brand-new mask. That's all. THERE HAVE BEEN NO PUBLIC MEETINGS. THERE WAS NO PUBLIC ANNOUNCENMENT OF ANY MEETING. The whole 'organization' is a fraud, conceived in secrecy and operating in secrecy. Therre have been a few secret back-room meetings of professional politicians. There is only one REAL GOOD GOVERNMENT LEAGUE IN NORTH DAKOTA. Its name is THE FARMERS' NONPARTISAN POLITICAL LEAGUE. It works in broad daylight. Its membership consists of FORTY THOUSAND of the best citizens of the state and as many more are its sympathizers, friends and supporters. It has indorsed candidates for state and legislative offices who are anxious to give the state of North Dakota GOOD GOVERNMENT, better government than it has ever had in the past. They are not controlled by CORRUPT INTERESTS. They are THEIR OWN MASTERS. A vote for them will be a vote for GOOD GOVERNMENT." - Text below image.
