countries better to sink their ships than

the slightest account In modern days.
The reported strike in the Daly at
Park City looks good, A rich and per
manent ore body in that favorite old
property Would be a welcome addition
to the riches developed at the Park.
The Tribune trusts that the half of the
value of the strike has not yet been told.
It Is explained by a conservative au
thority that the losses caused by the
Sully failure have fallen upon solid
houses, which are able to bear them, and
that no further failures on this account
are to be expected. This will at once
be a reassurance to the country, and a
splendid evidence of .the financial
strength of our business and finance.
The departure of William M. Butler,
Esq., who for more than two years has
1 been .Identified with the Telegram of
J this city, will be deeply regretted by the
I many friends he has made while here.
The cause of his departure, sickness In
i, his family, is a source of sympathy, and
jJWj all trust that the Illness may speedily
ujj pass, and that his lines may be laid in
W pleasant places.
HI It is reported that the workers on the
H San Pedro road below Callentcs broke
H their record on Tuesday, by laying
H eight thousand feet of track, or consid-
H i erably over a mile and a half. The
H track wa3 thus carried sixty-oix mllc-a
fiS. beyond Callentcs. This Is a sort of rec-
$m ord-breaklng which tho people of Utah
In delight to see. It Indicates a magnlfl-
Jn cent Christmas celebration.
It will bo a source of disappointment
5m to the public, as it doubtless is to the
a 1 medical profession, to find that radium,
v'Js in spite of its promised efficacy in
kgX cancer cases, has failed to bear out the
ureSi hopes entertained of it. These hopes
BaS i were based on what was supposed to be
HutM pome preliminary successes. Thus, a
committee appointed by the, Vienna
Academy of Science to investigate the
O results of tho treatment of cancer with
radium reported, says the Popular
Science Monthly, "that In nine cases In
which the treatment was used abate
ment in the cancerous swelling resulted,
and In two of these cases th.0. swelling
had not reappeared after five months'
time. A case of cancer of tho palate
was much Improved by the treatment.
The use of radium Is not recommended
when an operation is practicable. Nu
merous other cases of the beneficial
results of the radium treatment have
been reported." But now the news
comes that the London cancer hospital
has discarded the use of radium as of
GOVERNMENT BEET-SEED STATION.
Tho Department of Agriculture is to
establish on the Saratoga farm west of
Lehl, a station for the propagation of
single-germ sugai-bcet seed, a culture
In which the exports aro greatly Inter
ested, and as a place for which Utah is
found to bo choice. It seems that the
Department experts have just learned
of the success achieved by the Utah
Sugar Company In raising beet Eaed,
which suggests that a live newspaper
man who would keep the authorities
posted on what Is being accomplished
In this and other lines of work by prac
tical men who make themselves experts
In various lines by actually doing
things, might be a valuable addition to
the Department's force.
Tho Utah Sugar Company has been
raising seed for the use of the farmers
who supply It with the beets, for a
number of years. This seed has been
fully tested nnd Its desirability and vir
tue fully proved. It has been used year
after year and Its superiority to tho
Imported German beet seed fully estab
lished. Tho Tribune has printed the
facts from time to time, so that it
psems extraordinary that they should
have escaped the attention of the De
partment's experts till now.
But that they have finally learned tho
facts lsa good thing for Utah, and for
them. Tho line of experiment which
they will follow Is to the point of de
veloping a seed which will yield but a
single sprout, Instead of a cluster. Tho
advantage of the single germ will be at
once evident to the prectlcal beet
raiser, always provided that the germ
is vital and will be sure to sprout.
The establishment of this station will
put Utah in the very forefront of the
beet-pugar work in the United States.
As it is, it will bring to the notice of
beet-raisers all over the country the
fact of the superiority of Utah grown
beet-seed. This seed Is raised by the
quantity, forty tons of It last year, fifty
tons this year. It is of unexampled
richness In the production of beets high
in saccharine qualities.
' As It will be, with the production of
slngle-gQrm seed, this pre-eminence
will be extended to the world, and Utah
grown, single-germ beet-seed will be
come as famous In all lands as Is now
The site chosen for the experiments
is an Ideal one: It Is miles away from
any other seed-propagating place, and
In addition. to this advantage of seclu
sion, the soil and surroundings are all
that could be desired. Success to the
single-germ sugar-beet seed propaga
THE CANAL COMMISSION.
The Panama Canal Commission is
getting down to Its work In commenda
ble fashion. Its meeting of yesterday
showed that energy and efficiency will
bo the rule with it. Admiral Walker,
the head of the Commission, is a man
of great executive force and ability, and
his heart is bound up in this work, with
which he has been connected for many
Tho Commission decides that Its
headquarters will be on the Isthmus.
This will enable Its members to utilize
their knowledge of the work and direct
it to the bQst ends and for the surest
methods of expedition. There is noth
ing like the immediate presonce of
the directing force to keep things mov
ing. It is staled that Gen. Davis, the mili
tary member of the Commission, Is
likely to be appointed Civil Governor
of the canal strip. It would be an ad
mirable appointment. He Is a man of
fine administrative ability, and as there
will probably be a guard of soldiers
stationed on the strip, to guard public
property and enforce order, his appoint
ment would be peculiarly appropriate.
The Idea advocated by Secretary
Taft, of entrusting the administration
of the canal strip 'to a commission
similar to the civil commission admin
istering the affairs of the Philippines,
is growing In favor. This commleslon
would have full executive, legislative
and Judicial powers, the Governor being
tho head of 1L Probably no better form
of administration could be thought of
for that strip, not only for the present,
but for the future.
The Commission's plan Is to sail for
the Isthmus on the 29th of this month;
Judging by the activity manifested. in
the meetings already had, and the pre
liminaries made, the members will all
be on hand, and the start made. It Is
good to sco such zeal manifested by tho
members in this business.
. The blizzard that struck this region
yesterday afternoon camo with a rush,
and, was a sharp reminder that when
the northwest coast really gets stirred
up', we must look out for the overflow
of wind, rain, and snow. It came down
fast and furious, but nowhere In the
whole country can tho peoplo bear such
things with the fortitude of the people
Admiral Makaroff Is commended at
St. Petersburg for his "self-restraint"
during the latest bombardment of Port
Arthur, In not risking his fleet by going
out and fighting tho Japanese. This
reads strangely In view of the Jubilation
over Makaroff's going to the Fnr East,
It being oald that ho was the fighting
man of the Russian navy, and that on
his arrival he would reverse the de
fensive tactics which had heretofore
prevailed. But as long as he Is able to
restrain his fighting propensities, In the
Interest of the safety of his ileet, possi
bly there may be-an error in the pro
gramme said to have been laid out for
him. Ho has at least done one thing
that his predecessor failed to do. Ho
has saved his ships.
THE RAILROAD SHAKE-UP.
That is a shake-up Indeed which has
been mado in the Harrlman railroad
system. It camo as a surprise to the
public, and not the least of the sur
prises Is tho matter-of-fact way In
which It Is assumed that the San Pedro
roadthe Salt Lake route Is a part of
the combination. This after tho re
peated assurances that It would be an
Independent, open gateway, Is a good
deal of a change, nominally at least,
though practically, so far as this city
and State aro concerned, It will make
no difference at all: the main thing Is
the road, nnd that is assured.
The key .to the position Is the great
central control which Is In charge o
Vice-President and General Manager
W. H. Bancroft His Jurisdiction on
the main transcontinental line Is from
Green River to Reno, and includes the
whole Oregon Short Line system, n
trackage of 1989 miles. Later, It Is said,
the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake
lino will be under his jurisdiction, that
Is, no doubt, after It is completed. He
will continue to reside In this city. His
Is tho great Jurisdiction.
The other divisions are A. L. Mohler,
Vice-President and General Manager of
the Union Pacific, with headquarters at
Omaha, and control of tho U. P. system
to Green River; E. E. Calvin, Vice
President and General Manager of the
Oregon Railroad & Navigation Com
pany, with headquarters at Portland;
C. H. ' Markham, Vice-President and
General Manager of tho Southern Pa
cific, with headquarters at San Fran
cisco and jurisdiction as far cast as
Thus, every division Is under a Vice
President and General Manager; and
tho divisions are laid out with every
view to working efficiency. Wo arc
sorry to lose Mr. Calvin, but rejoice In
his promotion. And we are doubly glad
that Mr. Bancroft makes It a point to
stny in this city, and that his jurisdic
tion Is so extensive.
These changes have been made by
Mr. Julius Kruttschnitt, the Director
of Tranportatlon, whose headquarters
are in Chicago. That they will tend to
a moro perfect working. of the great
Harrlman railway system cannot be
doubted. They will be welcomed by
the people of this region, who are to be
more vitally affected by them (we hope
for the better) than any others.
We here are at the parting of the
ways, the meeting-point of the long
traveling trains. If a train has started
late and Is unable to make up Its short
age, wo get the full burden of it, as we
do also whenever there Is a late train
for any cause. And there are so many
of them I Mr. Bancroft will now feel
the first stress of this situation, and he
will be expected to speak the appro
priate, emphatic words for all of us on
It Is announced that Mr. Rockefeller
thinks ho will have enough to support
him in moderate comfort for the rest
of his days by next year, and that then
he will bo ready to retire from business.
It Is to be hoped that Mr. Rockefeller
has made no mistake In this, for the
public would be truly grieved to hear
that he had ever been obliged to go to
tho poor-house. We do not believe,
however, that Mr. Rockefeller shares in
even small degree the prejudice of Mr.
Carnegie against dying rich.
The appointment of Mr. Greenewald
to be Surveyor of this port of delivery
under tho law just passed establishing
this city as such port, will be well re
ceived by the business community.
Politically, he has always been a strong
and efficient Republican, and this Is
his first party reward. The Trlbuno
congratulates him upon his appoint
ment, confident that he will render
good service and be an excellent and
General Miles Is a rare political Joker.
He counsels that the Prohibitionists
wait before making their nominations
to see if the two great political parties
will not put a satisfactory prohibition
plank in their platforms, and nominate,
satisfactory candidates. The Prohibi
tionists needn't wait; there will be no
prohibition plank in tho platform of
either of the great parties; the sugges
tion of it would throw either convention
into a spasm.
Great things are evidently expected of
the irrigating pumps that are to be ex
hibited at the St Louis fair. But we
Imagine that their use will be greater in
the seml-arld regions of the eastern
slope, whore water Is near the surface,
than In the real arid regions. Tho que3
tion In most of the arid region is to find
the water, and not so much to find
means of getting It on the land by the
The Missouri Supreme Court main
tains Its record as an ally of the con
victed boodlers, by releasing John H.
Schnottlcr, convicted of corruption. It
seems to be mighty hard for District
Attorney Folk to convict any boodler
to tho satisfaction of the Missouri Su
preme Court: so much so. that It has
become the settled opinion of the public
that that court Is not satisfied to have
any of them convicted.
DRESS THAT OFFENDS.
From the- Chicago Tribune.
In spite of tho existence of dress
makers' conventions, and notwithstand
ing the faot that tho subject of dress
has never before been given the esthet
ic and hygienic attention that It now
receives, it Is generally acknowledged
that tho ultra-fashionable gowns of to
day havo raroly been equaled for un
gracefulness and unbecomlngnoss. Some
go so far as to say that thoy have never
before been surpassed In the matter of
Indelicacy and Impropriety. The tlght
fhting skirt that Is now so much af
fected has como In for an amount of
censure and condemnation that has
rarely boon given to a femlnlno gar
ment. Men who know little and care
less about the question of woman's
dress, and whose knowledge of what a
woman has on Is limited to general Im
pressions, havo received definlto nnd
disagreeable Impressions of the present
glove-fitting skirts and havo not hesi
tated to give expression to their opin
ions. There have been styles that have
excited mirth and many that have
called forth ridicule, but tho stylo In
question has aroused accusations more
serious than those prompted by a mere
desire to "poke fun."
