Island to belong to the UnUed States,
as- tho plain reading of the treaty of

peals to tho administration first to be

THE PROPOSED FIRE ORDINANCE.
The ordinance Introduced In the Coun
cil on Monday night by Mr. Hartenstoln,
for the protection of the public In case
of an alarm at a theater or other place
of public assemblage, appears to be at
once efficient and conservative. It pre
scribes means of egress nnd methods of
making them available for the use of
the audience, which if In fact enforced,
will ensure the maximum of safety to
the audience without being unduly bur
densome on the management. To be
sure, there is no known peril here at
this time on this account, but it Is pre
cisely when there is none that provision
should be made to meet It In case It
should come. The groat trouble in all
this matter comes from taking too much
for granted; from ajwumlng that tail Is
right, and that nobody Is going to get
That was Just the trouble In the'
Iroquois theater in Chicago, and though
there had been at least one narrow es
cape, and though it was known to a
number of persons connected with tho,
theater (and should have been known to
many more, and to the city officials who
have responsibilities under the law in
connection with this matter), that the
asbestos curtain wouldn't work, that the
shaft above the stage that should have
drawn the flame and smoke upward
wouldn't draw, and that most of the ex
its wore concealed by curtains and the
doors behind the Curtains were locked,
still no notice was taken of these alarm
ing defects, and the public was lured
into that death-trap under the practical
guarantee that all the safety provisions
of the law had been metftas' theinAtural.
presumption Is. For this) lack, a -'num-'
her of Chicago's officials, . Including
Mayor Harrison, have been charged
with blame. It is quite right that they
should thus be held to account, for It
was clearly their duty as officers of the
city to see that the guaranty of sufety
which was Implied by their allowing
that theater to open, was in truth what
the ordinances of the city required It
And right there Is the real lesson of ,

dence man who manipulated the no
torious swindles In London, and was
convicted, took his -punishment very
hard. It was a scorchlngMccture that
he had from the Bench, and well de

Inference naturally Is that ho had
dwelt so long in an atmosphere of de

that he had lost all sense of the differ

been guilty of all the acts of financial

he did not seem to realize that he had j

ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION.
During the last month n great deal
has been printed regarding the recla
mation work of the Government In the
way of furnishing an increased water
supply to certain irrigated lands in
Utah. It has been made plain to the
people that Government fundn arc
ready to be used where It shall appear
that large areas of land arc to be bene
fited and the owners thereof are willing
to repay the cost of the additional
water supply. One particular section In
Utah seems In a fair way to secure the
aid of the Government In providing an
abundant supply of water for Irrigation
purposes. The minds of the farmers
In Salt Lake valley are taken up with
the idea of co-operation with the Gov
ernment to develop the Utuh lake propo
sition nnd to thus give ample water
supply for all lands n the valley de
pending upon the Jordan river. Other
localities are cited where Governmental
aid may be Invoked to store up
waters that now go to waste. It is all
commendable and will ultimately add
wonderfully to the land values In Utah.
But there Is another question-of al
.most. If not quite, equal importance
that confronts all the farmers In Utah,
not only in the Salt Lake valley, but In
every valley In this State where Irriga
tion Is practiced. Especially in the
older valleys, where land values are
naturally highest, the question of
drainage to remove seepage water 'and
the accumulation of alkali Is of as great
Importance as the problem of getting
more water for the land. Right in
Salt Lake county, where untold benefits
are expected to follow the completion of
the Governmental reservoir, there Is to
day as much land ruined by seepage
and alkuli as there is land suffering for
more water. In Davis. Weber, and
Cache counties . a very groat per cent of
the valley lands are rendered practical
useless from lack of drainage.
It is not our purpose to discuss in de
tail, at this time the practical workings
and benefits that accrue to irrigated
land froin..pr.pper drainage. We 'simply
wish to call1 Attention to the faoVthat
something more than Irrigation Is
needed In all the older settled
valleys In Utah, and to go upon record
most unequivocally In favor of reclaim
ing tho waste lands by drainage. The
United States Government is demon
strating the perfect feasibility of wash
ing the nlkall from the soil by means
of tile drains, and no man need hesi
tate in undertaking the work for him
self. In future articles we shall indicate the
laws needed In Utah t,o provide for
a general system of drainage for each
section of irrigated farm lands. In the
meantime, and while tlie Increased
supply of water Is being arranged for,
it jDehooves the' farmers of Utah to look
into the nature of reclaiming by drain
age their farm lands now useless from
seepage and excess of alkali.
The sulky glfl of 550,000 by the Sultan
of Morocco, nominally for the exhibit
at the St. Louis exposition, probably
won't do much for Morocco, under the
circumstances. He Is tired of the whole
affair, being bored by tho frequent and
persistent appeals In behalf of the ex
hibit that have been made to him. lie
wants to hear no more- about It.. He
tells Commissioner Langermail to take
the money and do what he likes
with it; put It In his own pocket If he
wants to. And yet. It Is all In silver,
and took a regular caravan to convey
the money to the coast. Probably thc-re
aro others who might sympathize with
the Sultan In his boredom on this mat
ter, and wish like relief. By the
way, what has become of that "pre
tender" who was makglng it so hot for
this frisky young Sultan last year?
Why wouldn't It be a good idea for
Abdul Aziz to send him to the ex
position, and thus Becurc his absence
for a while at least from Morocco?
A speed of 125 miles an hour, as pro
jected for the c-lectrlc service on the
New York Central, will certainly be up
to the times; It will take very solid
equipment to stand it. But that the big
railroad companies arc turning their
attention to electric power, with the
suggested abolition of the steam loco
motives altogether within the limits of
Greater New York, proves that practi
cal transportation men sec great
possibilities In the new motor "power.
The rate of speed proposed, If applied,
say. to a train running between this
city and a hypothetical bathing and
summor resort on the west shore of
Antelope Island, would cause it to cover
the distance In about twelve minutes
