But is the suspension of eighty school
"boys for several days for violating rules
a punishment or a reward?
The men -who reported that oil was
iflowing- from a well pipe ut Medbury,
Ida., merely had a pipe dream.
Are the police aware that in com
pelling loitering men to move on, they
are driving1 many of them to drink?
;j . .
K? Superintendent Condle Is willing to
promise that the dirt will be swept from
I tho pavements in a few days, now, If the
Xeep Greek will have to laugh when
Jt hears that Lander had a big celebra
tion becau&e of an announcement that
a railroad would be built to it.
Now that tho Mayor has heard that
Ihe smoke-consumers wfll not consume,
perhaps he can find some law that will
compel them to do so.
Hjl Doubtless, some of those wanted as
H witnesses in the Smoot case cannot see
j why they should" be subpoenaed, when
1 they have such poor memories.
H The arguments of the Democrats rela-
1 tlVe to the Council situation would all
H be sound if it could just be proven that
H six constitute a greater number than
Is The rejoicing of the Russians at Port
Arthur after one of the Japanese at

the fact that they found themselves still

etructlng sidewalks do not feel like

manly enough to send around for the
And how can young ladies be sure
that nice-appearing gentlemen are rude
enough to look at girls on the street, un
i less they assemble at some good corner
where they can see?
The Japanese, shrewd as they are in
matters of business, were evidently
1 greatly mistaken in thinking that Port,
Arthur afforded a fine opportunity for
i a bottling enterprise,
j Japan should take care lest she be
j Russified. ' She is claiming a success In
her attempt to bottle up Port Arthur
harbor, and the fleet within It, when it
seems reasonably sure that the attempt
to do so was a failure. Japan ought to
stick to her heathenish practice of tell
ing the truth.
I It Is announced that Austria expects
to intervene in the Balkans, jointly1
with Russia, in order to enforce the re
forms which these two powers mapped
out for Macedonia. On the other hand,
Turkey is taking: advantage of the oc
cupation of Russia elsewhere to Insist
that 8he can fix with Bulgaria all mat
ters relating1 to the troubles in Mace
donia, and that there Is no occasion'for
tho interference of any other power,
j Under these circumstances, If Austria
; persists in intervening, it is not sur
prising that the sentiment in Europe
Is much agitated for fear of a conflict
arising in the Balkans which may
threaten the peace of Europe.
I TV e note a beneficial work going on in
Eouthern Utah which has been little
heard of. It is an investigation by N.
H Darton of the Hydrographlc division
of the Geological Survey, of the .water
resources in the western part of Iron
county. This investigation is being
thoroughly made, with a view not only
to the water possibilities of the region,
but also in regard to Its general make
up, resources and capabilities. It is
excellent work, and Utah is favored in
receiving such attention from the de
partment. Without doubt, Mr. Dar
ton's report will be of much interest,
and it may prove to be of the highest
The people of this city welcomed with
much enthusiasm Mayor Morris's em
Hj phatlc declaration that he would wlth
out delay proceed to abate the smoke
nuisance. But it muBt be confessed
ft that their enthusiasm Is wearing away,
and that it is gradually being succeeded
by a feeling of listless despair. They
nee the atmosphere darkened by the
black smoke, note tho smirching of
clothes In all parts of the city by the
falling particles of soot, are disgusted
- at the obstruction to the beautiful view
this valley presents and are fast com-.
inpr to the concluolon that the Mayor
didn't really mean it They are sorry
for this, too, for It. was the promise of
a much-needed reform, for the lack of
which the city Is suffering both in pursct
and In reputation.
RATIFICATION OF THE TREATY.
The ratifications of the Pcnama canal
treaty were exchanged yester'day in
Washington, between President Roose
velt and M. Buneau Varilla, the repre
sentative of Panama. These cere
monies were immediately followed by
the Issuance of a proclamation by the
President, declaring the treaty in ef
This is the final step In the diplomatic
work. The -practical preliminaries will
come next; the examination into the
legal status of the transfer at Its rights,
titles and franchises by the French
ca"nal company to the United States.
As Is well known, a number of cases
are pending In the French courts, af
fecting this company and its stock. One
of them asks an injunction to prevent
the sale of the company's property to
the United States. These will have to
be looked Into sufficiently to see that
the company's officers are in fact In a
position to make the sale and convey
ance. If that is found to be all right,
there need be no bother about the suits;
the stockholders can fight them out
The people of this country will wel
come the close of these preliminary
steps. They npprove also of Secretary
Shaw's caution in announcing that he
will not pay the French company the
forty million dollars called for in the
bargain with it until he is assured that
he will get a clear title to the property,
j At the same time, they are anxious
to see the transaction concluded as
speedily as possible, and to get at the
work of actually building the canal.
And they will alo wait with eagerness
the conclusion of all the preliminary
steps, till the time comes when the
construction contracts can be let. .
AN EARLY ADJOURNMENT.
Congress is to adjourn early. It
seems, even the astonishing dates of
April 15th or May 1st are suggested as
dates at which It would be possible to
get through. It Jo a hopeful view, which
we should be glad to see realized.
The Presidential campaign is the great
event of the year, and this will be on
In full vigor by May. The members of
Congress will want to be In It, not only
because they are politicians, but be
cause they will want to be attending to
the shaping of affalrseon their own ac
count. The country will be quite content with
Congress if it passes the appropria
tion bills and adjourns early in May.
At the short session, there are all
passed by March 4th, but this- being the
long session, more latitude is allowed
and more talk has to be indulged in.
But making all fair allowances, the ses
sion could easily close in ten weeks
now, to the advantage of everybody.
It Is a surprise, though, after all, for
this suggestion of an early adjournment
to come from Congrese; it generally,
comes from the public. And it is more
especially surprising that it comes from
a Senator, a member of a body which
seems never to be ready to quit talking
and get down to business.
But no matter about where the sug
gestion comes from; it is an excellent
one, and we should be delighted- to see
it put into effect.
GERMAN RAILROAD IN CHINA.
Kaiser Wllhelm has sent a cablegram
of congratulation to Dr. Fisher, presi
dent of the Shan Tung: Railway com
pany, on the completion of the line to
the Hoang Ho, and the arrival of the
first railway train at Tsl Nan Fu, and
'the occasion deserves the congratula
tions. It is always a difficult thing- to build
a railroad in 'China. First, the line is
pretty sure to disturb some ancertor's
grave, (for China Is a vast graveyard,)
and if it is not that, then some malign
spirit might be offended. There are a
thousand objections, all of them ab
surd, but Important to the Chinaman,
why the road should not be built
These objections are overcome by
persuasion by the Americans and Eng
lish, but probably the Germane pushed
on without paying any attention to
them, and punished those who attempt
ed to Interfere with the progress of the
This line runs almost directly west
ward from Kiau Chau to Tsl Nan,
which is an important city, situated on
a bend in -the great Hoang Ho river,
and a great center of trade. Strong
commercial strategy is Involved In this
move; it looks like an effort to intrench
German supremacy in the valley of the
Hoang Ho, as the English are estab
lished In the Yang Tse Klang.
WHAT OF THE MENACE?
It seems that China is waking up to
the painful position which she occupies
In declaring neutrality while another
country is fighting to restore to her the
Imperial province now held in the grasp
of the Russian bear. The Chinese Min
ister to Berlin is said to have declared
that China's neutrality may be only
That means that as soon as Japan
wins a decisive victory over Russia in
battle, China will aid Japan, and aid-in
clearing Russia out of Manchuria, and
will endeavor to push the line up to the
Amoor. river. That sort of thing would
be characteristically Chines, and it
would be very human also, so that we
Judge it to be about what Is to be ex
pected. Lord "Woleeley, It appears, te afraid
that Japan's triumph would be a men
ace to the "Western civilization; ho fears
that it would mean the uplifting of he
Mongolian race, and Its consolidation
Into a power capable of threatening Eu
It Is astonishing that he should hold
such ,a view. How would the yellow
men ever get to Europe a sufficient force
to bo a serious menace? The overland
Journey Is out of .the question, and
equally Impracticable would1 be a sea
invasion, for ships enough could never
be collected for such a journey, even if
the combined navies of Europe were not
sure to hopeleosly overmatch any pos
sible Chinese and Japanese fleets.
The whole Idea is a wild dream, and
we are astonished to see it put In form
by anybody, much less by a man like
Lord Wolseley, who should certainly
have clearer ideas on the situation or
possible futurities than that.
But what of- the menace to Eastern
civilization, nay to humanity Itself, in
case of Russia's triumph? Those who
remember the cruel and wanton atroci
ties committed by the Russian troops in
their march to the relief of the lega
tions, their ruthless savagery In. shoot
ing and bayoneting defenseless laborers,
women, children, and even babes, will
shrink with horror from the thought pf
a Russian victory in the Far East.
And this is a live, practical question, not
an idle speculation. For the sake of
human nature Itself, It is to bo hoped
that the world may be spared the scenes
which such a victory would, bring.
THE LESSON OF THE FLOOD.
; The Weber river Is said now to be
higher than it has been at any time
before in seventeen years. The warm
weather came suddenly in the region of
the upper branches of the stream, and
as the frozen ground did not permit of
the water soaking In, it ran 'off, and
overflowed the banks of the stream. In
the upper waters, also, great Ice jams
were formed, which came near wrecking
a number of bridges, and lower clown,
east of Morgan City, a bridge was
swept out, and all traffic on the Union
PrHfln lrnc ciimArHr.1 Hlii-lnrr T'linrc-
day, delaying the malls from the East
to this city.
The damage Inflicted is considerable,
and the delay In tho trains Is annoy
ing. It was a trouble unexpected, too,
for the warm weather came almost
without warning, and Just as It could
be most harmful.
But all these things are trifling com
pared with the lesson which the flood
teaches. Here Is a torrent of water go
ing to waste. No doubt enough water
churned down the canyons In this
freshet to irrigate all the land depend
ing on the Weber river for a supply,
for a month. And yet It is gone, with
out any benefit to any one, but to the
injury of many.
Suppose now. instead of having this
'water make the trouble It has done, It
had all been carefully Impounded, and
held until it would be needed next
summer: what an agreeable contrast
from what Is to what might be would
Probably the plan of the Arid Land
Reclamation Fund Commission pro
vides for dealing with Just such cases
as this. And when the contemplated
Improvements in this stream are put in,
the flood will be tamed and made to do
useful work and fill a crying need later
on in the season.
THE FARMERS' CONVENTIONS.
The series of farmers' conventions be
ing held in several of the counties of the
State should, and without doubt will, re
sult In much good. Three counties, San
pete, Sevier and Emery, have now had
these conventions, and In each place
where they were held, the farmers took
a lively interest, both speaking and ask
Professors Merrill, Hutt, and Drydcn
of the Agricultural college are appoint
ing and directing these conventions.
They give plain, practical talks to the
farmers, and have succeeded In awaken
ing responses and securing co-operation
In a remarkable degree.
In each locality where these conven
tions are held, the special needs, products-
or requirements of that locality
are given prominence, and the talks,
answers and Information generally are
designed to be especially applicable
there. We hear that, the farmers are
much pleased with these conventions,
and appreciate fully the good work
which Professors Merrill. Hutt, and
Dryden are doing in their behalf.
In this morning's Tribune is a report
of tho convention held' at Orangeville,
in Emery county. It is a fulr sample of
the others that have been held, and
which The Tribune has reported -from
time to time.
There should be no doubt about the
importance and desirability or these
meetings. And now that the Agri
cultural college authorities can send out
experts like Professors Merrill, 'Hutt.
and Dryden to conduct them, and the
farmers arc showing such an interest
In them, we trust that they may be
made a continuing feature of the college
The Siberian railroad cost $81,326 per
mile; the Union Pacific road $50,989 per
mile; the Northern Pacific, $59,257; the
Missouri Pacific. $38,107; the Great
Northern, $40,771. Here is variety
enough for choice. And it is reasona
bly well assured that the costliest of
them all is also the poorest and the
least able to do a railroad business.
Rochester is the latest victim of a
great fire. Its affliction falls far short
of Baltimore's, to be sure; but It in

is really a marvel In this age of flre-
proof building, to see such disasters.
From the Baltimore Sun.
In the report of the Prof. Allen of
the National Pure Food Association it
is staled, as the result of investigations
made in Europe, that 60 per cent of
French wines and SO per cent of French
champagnes are adulterations or Imita
tions. Many of the wines Included In
the 60 per cent never saw a vineyard,
tho Professor states, and grapes had
no part in their composition. These
wines arc concocted of new alcohol,
dyes and acids injurious to health. The
result of studies made by ofTlclal com
missions on the continent and in
England Is to secure pretty general
agreement to the effect that antiseptics
cannot be. safely permitted in food
stuffs and that artificial coloring Is
generally on evidence of fraud. The
line begins to be drawn against sophis
ticated food of all kinds.
It Is believed that tho Rothschild fam
ily ns a wholo Is worth about $1,600,000,

Mr. Shafroth of Colorado Is not tho
first Democrat who refused to accept a
seat In Congress because he believed his
election had been tinged with fraud. When
J. C. C. Black of tho Tenth Georgia dis
trict ran against Thomas E. Watson he
was elected by a good majority, but It
was charged that tlicro was much Irreg
ular voting In Richmond county. When
Mr. Black learned of this he forwarded
his resignation to tho Governor, who or
dered a new election. Mr. Black was
