BOOK ON DRY FARMING.
The, .policial proceedings of the sec
ond session Qf thp TratnsUss.ouri
Dry Farming Congt;e has just been
issued . It is a ncport of the meeting
held here last January, the proceed-
ings being reported in detail.
It is gotten out by the Salt Lake
Commercial Club and is a very valu
able document to any one interested ',
in the subject of Dry Farming. , Itjj
is a pity that the work was not morc
carefully cdlitcd; indeed it docs not'!
appear to have been edited at all..?
Many of the speeches were extern-
porancous and since these were to beg
published they 'should have been sub-
matted to the authors for revision. ?
,Mich of the material could have been 1
. . .
omitted thus making the publication
less expensive and just as valuable. '
However, it is -a (splendid volume and f
shows commendable enterprise on the
part of Salt Lake's Commercial Club.
Tt can be had by any one sending one
dollar to Hon. FSshcr Harris, secre
tary at Salt Lake City, which also en
titles them to ow year's membership
in the Association.
STAND FOR UTAH.
There is littlc'usc for country news
papers bragging that they boost for
Utah as long s they arc known to
counlenaiu? the work of the Salt
Lake Trim. ic If the said papers
really want 0 give their state a big
forward pusi. and do it a splendid
service they si mid combine against
that sheet of perdition and expose to
their faithful readers the venomous
lies it scatters daily about Utah.
Their silence and passiveness is s
crime when so fair and promising a
state is so vilely assailed. In any
other state in the Union the makers
of the Tribune would long since have
been forccdl to answer for their in- j
famous work on the field of honor.
But the miserable cowards know they
are assailing the most patient, long
suffering and forbearing people on
earth. But never mind the people. ItA
the state. Any man who will ninlign
and blacken his own state and hold
it up as a stain on the nations' es
cutcheon like Tom Kcarns has done
is unfit for association, with gentle
men. And still he is above the slimy
hypocriticaJ, 'ministers, who while
masquerading behind the cross of cal
vary, paint their homo istate so black
that men floo from .it. Is there not
patriotism enough in the breasts of
native and adopted sons of Utah to
cry dowtn suclrvillanous scandal .mon
gers? If-there 'isthen in the name of
