QH casion. Mr. La FolJetto has failed
Hf under the test..
H As a matter of simple fact Senator
S La Follctto began to over-estimate
Hf (himself at an early date; he imag-
H ined himself a popular Idol with the
m people, of the entire country when,
B in. reality, his popularity and his force
H Woro confined largely to his own state.
HH He was not of the growth from which
H comes presidential timber. Locally,
H he had done well, accomplishing many
K desirable things, but, in a national
H way, his Influence was almost im-
HH perceptible. Yet this man dreamed
HH of a presidential nomination; that do-
H nied him he exhibited nothing of
H what is popularly called "the sporting
H spirit." He did not accept defeat
H gracefully. On the contrary ho has
H turned venomously upon the freat
H new party Beeking to mako possible
iH the political regeneration or the coun-
H try, and, so far as he can produce
H results, Is striving to hamper that or-
B ganization in its progress. Unfortun-
HMH ately for Mr. La Folletto, the animus
BflH of his course is too widely under-
H stood. He cannot injure the Progres-
m sive party. The envenomed assaults
H of a disappointed man lack effective-
H ness, because of their very nature.
H They are loBt in a great national cam-
H paign. La Folletto's day is of the
H WHY SLUMBERING STILL?
WE note with regret that the
H has not yet lifted its clarion
B voico either for or against the Repub-
H lican state and county tickets; and
H the fine old line from the fine old
H TrisbT songs recurs to us. Wherefore,
H the above title.
H For the bright morn is breaking.
H The horn of the hunter is certainly
H heard on the hill, and also in the
H valley. The lark from her light wing
H the bright dew is shaking, and if the
H Herald-Republican ever is going to
Q wake uftHn defense of its party
H tickets, it certainly ought to wake up
H In the great state of Utah, and in
H the important county of Salt Lake,
H It will not bo forgotten that the Her-
B aid-Republican has had a good deal of
H substantial recognition from the Re-
H publican party. It had a little over
B five thousand dollars of recognition in
B a singlo instance. The money was
RH earned, of course, but that paper
HB never would have had a chance to
H earn it if it had not been Republican.
H Of course, some conditions have
B changed. The paper mentioned has
H been very strong for the party when
H thu party belonged to the posion
H squad of the federal bunch. And its
H silenoo now may by some suspicious
H individuals be charged to the fact
K that the said P S of the F B has been
H gently but firmly removed from con-
'H trol, and ousted from possession. And
S we would regret that suspicion should
H obtain, because the manner of the re-
B moval and the ousting was really
B a little sudden and unceremonious.
H The Herald-Republican has had a
B good many favors at the hands of the
B Republican party. That party is now
B In the earnest beginning of a verj ex-
B acting campaign. Thb Tribune, be
ing long privileged thereto, is sup
porting the claims of another party
in the county. It doesn't look well
for a paper to fatten off a party, and
then abandon its just obligation when
It can no longer control the party.
The Herald-Republican ought either
to fish or cut bait.
And there are a good many stout
Republicans in the state who don't
care much which. Ogden Examiner.
"HOTELS ARE CROWDED."
NO better advertisement for Salt
Lake can bo found than that
which adorned street cars that
were paraded through the streets dur
ing the past week. It carried an ap
peal to citizens to provide rooms for
the city's guests as all the hotels
Salt Lake has good hotel accom
modations and good hotels. Another
will be added to the list shortly and
the crowds of the coming years will
find even more accommodation than
During the past week there have
been thousands of visitors attending
the Irrigation Congress, the State Fair
and Conference. They found the most
magnificent business street in the
world decorated with flags and lights,
waving and flashing a welcome as
hearty as welcome can be made.
Some of the spirit of this city of
the mountains and some of the spirit
of the people in this ureat coirmon
wealth became manifest when the visi
tors rubbed elbows with the natives
and watched the parade on the open
ing night. One hundred thousand per
son saw the parade an audience of
which any city twice this size might
well feel proud.
Utah poured forth the story of her
development, her resources, and gave
some hint as to the state's immeas
urable possibilities, so that the visit
ing throng might know, in a meas
ure, what is being done toward the
general uplift in this wonderful state.
Can you not catch some of the spirit
that took hundreds of Utah's business
men away from their renumerative
business to plunge them into weeks of
toil only to make this a big week
wherein all will share the blessings"?
SHAKE IT UP A BIT.
THE STATE FAIR of 1912 will
not go down in history as great
er than that of recent years, de
spite the advertisements that it was
to be "bigger and better than ever."
The Fair of 1912, was not as good
as 1911, for the very reason that
many of last year's best features were
retained without change or Improve
ment. The formation of exhibits In
the various buildings and on the
grounds was not revised so that where
apples and peaches and pears ap
peared in 1911, fruit carrying quite
the same rosy blush and healthy ap:
pearance appeared this year.
Some of the exhibits appeared as
though they had been locked up over
winter only to be dusted off and re
opened for the inspection of another
The fair officials should compel ex
hibitors to make an entire rearrange
ment of booths, not necessarily forc
ing a change of position, but bringing
about a radical change In the gener
al formation so that next year it will
look like new even if it isn't.
From the standpoint of a purely dis
interested outsider, the Honorable T.
Kearns must bo having the laugh on
his life during the present campaign.
He ought to got fat.
The slight interruption of the cam
paign caused by the Irrigation Con
gress, the State Fair and Conference
should be overlooked by the politi
cians, inasmuch as there is plenty of
time yet in which to say all there is
