GOODWIN'S VBEKLY. 5 j
Cfe Situation in XOeher Cotinty.
The lines of the campaign have been outlined
and the fur is expected to fly next week. The Re
publicans, both as a national and local issue, are
crying. "Let well enough alone." The Democrats
are meeting this slogan by asserting that in coun
ty government the people have not been having
"well enough." They are making a campaign of
abuse and faultfinding, and they hope to horn
swoggte enough of the people to give them the vic
tory. The orators of the unterrifled have loaded
up on misrepresentations and cheap attacks and
propose to carry the war into Africa. The Repub
licans will content themselves with denying Dem
ocratic campaign stories and will depend on the
good sense of the American voter to see that the
6, o. P. ticket is victorious all along the line.
One of the really funny things of the local cam
paign is the selection of Judge Dee as chairman
of the Democratic county committee. The good
old Judge is one of our leading citizens a pillar
of our financial temple and a far-seeing, sound
business man. As a matter of fact, he is such a
sound, safe business man that he votes the na
tional Republican ticket and supports the na
tional Republican policies. He poses locally as a
Democrat, but that is for reasons which pertain ex
clusively to his own political virtue. He was a
Democrat in the olden time and at his age to
change his politics would put him in the same
class as Shurtliff. So he is a Democrat for 364
days in each year, but on election day he marches
to the polls and puts a cross up by the bee hive
and lets it go at that.
Judge Dee voted for McKinley a couple of
times and is glad of it. He is heavily interested
in the Ogden Sugar company, now the Amalga
mated, and of course he wants a Congressman
who will vote against the reciprocity bill. He is
a firm believer in sound money, so naturally he
would be opposed to the silver mouthings of Wil
liam Henry King. He is a disciple of expansion as
the Oriental market will make a demand for the
products of the West and thus help out all the
industries the good old Judge is connected with.
And that is why it is funny to see and read and
hear of Judge Dee managing a Democratic cam
paign when everybody expects him to religiously
ork and pray that from all the efforts of Demo
crats to harass the land with. Democratic govern
ment, the country may be spared yet another time.

The people in Weber have just about arrived at
the conclusion that the so-called Smoot-Kearns
combination is nothing but a dream. Those on the
inside know that the camps of each bear strained
relations toward each other, but the people gen
erally have not expected to see an open rupture.
The unexpected, it appears, has happened, as Mr.
Smoot is riding in the band wagon alone, while
Kearns is frantically gesticulating back of the
procession. For some unknown reason, let us hope
the love of self-respect, the apostle has served no
tice on the Senator to get off the earth, and the
Senator, it appears, will have a hard time trying
to evade the manifesto, if he fares no better in the
rest of the State than he did in Ogden at the late
convention. So far as the combination goes Smoot
is in the saddle and Kearns is nowhere.
It looks as though the Democratic hope that
Bill would jump on the Republican ticket with
both feet was about to be verified. The Mayor
editor has not said one kind word of the ticket or
a single nominee and that means that your Uncle
Bill must have an understanding, or he must
know where he is at politically for the future.
That, if Bill can be relied on long enough to follow
his own precedent there will not be much doing
through the columns of the Daily Bill until the
editor has been "seen." However, these calcula
tions may be rudely shattered. Bill may jump in
and put up a rousing fight just to show the boys
that he knows the Republicans are going to win
anyway and he don't propose to be outside the
breastworks when the victors share the spoils.
A resume of the Republican situation shows
that at least four of the Legislative nominees are
for Sutherland for Senator, and as the fifth is
doubtful, there could stranger things happen than
giving Sutherland the whole half-dozen from We
ber (everyone knows where Senator Allison
stands). Should the Congressman conclude to butt
in on the Senatorial fight he can start out with
practically the solid backing of Weber. That fact
is significant when the Kearns managers here have
assured the Senator that Sutherland did not get
a call at the late convention. If the daily press of
the State was not syndicated and if the truth was
not so often strangled to make a Kearns display,
the probability is that in other parts of the State
the American spirit of fairness might occasionally
be found and the Senatorial situation might be

GOLF. H M
Today's foursome should, from the view-point I - h 1
of the gallery, be one of the most interesting 1 ,"j
matches in a long; season of close contests on the ' H
local links. With the champion and runner-up ij c v H
both of the men's and women's championship j yt H
contests in the play, there ought to be enough f ', H
good golf to furnish a lot of surprises and sudden ' jj
changes in the standing of the game, with the re- rf ' H
suit problematical until near the end of the eigh- j . ' jj
teen hole match. In a match of this kind, Mr. V i M
Channing's terrific driving and Miss Judge's clever ' ' ' ' fl
approaching should make them the favorites. k ' ' '
Thirty-six holes match play is too long a game i ! ,' j
for the women, even in the championship finals. j l , 'j
To play thirty-six holes in one day takes some- I 1 , '
thing besides golfing knowledge; it takes an j il ' !
amount of endurance that belongs rather to a pro- I j' j ' ;'1
fessional pedestrian than to a woman golfer. And 1 , I I ; 41
7i I i 'AH
to split championship finals into two days' play 1 1 , ! jH
is not golf, nor is it conducive to peaceful sleep. 1 j$ .
This opinion is not the product of my own fer- 1 i' Vltl
tile brain; the women contestants declare with j i 'l :i!
emphasis that it is what they think about it, and I Jr , ( H
it is a pretty good think. Twenty-seven holes I jT ,') jfl
could be played in one day, and twenty-seven I- I?' .JIB
holes is a good test of golf. It is long enough to I lJ ' ' ' lH
prevent the possibility of winning by accident or ill '!, ijB
luck, and as the ladies wish it so, twenty-seven 1 j, '!? "liH
holes will probably be fixed as the limit of play 1 1 y '
in the women's finals next season. J m $ , H
The links at Fort Douglas have finally been tut , 'i, jjfl
completed, and a number of the Country Club I PR ' 'iJB
golfers have been cordially invited by Colonel j ifjifj ,'iffl
Bubb to bring their "cloobs" and try them. Need- I Of VjB
less to say, the invitation will be accepted! I un- ! Hi i' 1$ 4
destand the boys at the post have succeeded In j m 'n'LijB
laying out a very sporty course. That is inac- j wkj !,j H
cordance with the eternal fitness of things. And j ' M' mB
the establishing of a bogey score for the new W ' ) IjH
course will be attended with much pleasure. ' vf ' H
Col. Bubb is to be commended for his action ; !, J fl
in having this new course laid out. Most of the , : V , jl 'fl
officers at the post are exceedingly fond of the j ! ' jl( JH
game, but the Country Club links are too far j y ,0 jjjH
away for them to play much, and the new links , J j (I )$H
will give them an opportunity of slamming new ; f'v'jflM
