deavoring to win all Republicans to the
harmonious anil united action which
will Insure to the party in this most
important campaign that is to en
gage the enemy all along the line, In
county, judicial, State, and National
tickets, the decisive triumph which the
policies and the record of the Repub
lican party have so richly earned.
THE EXPERIMENTAL FARMS.
The Tribune has from time to time
had hopeful and favorable mention of
the State's experimental dry farms.
We believe from the outlook which Is
now presented that these will be of
the very highest Importance to the peo
ple. They may not open an entirely
new era In farming In Utah, but if they
maintain their present promise, their
establishment will not lack much of
making that new era.
That all the farmers may have an
opportunity to see these farms, Inspect
them, note the manner In which they
are conducted, and learn as much as
possible about them, Professor John A.
Widtsoe, of the Experimental station
at Logan, which Is In charge of the
experiments, has Issued notice of excur
sions to these farms, and the desire is
that as many farmers as possible may
attend these excursions, and take part
In the demonstrations. The Trlbuno
urges all who can possibly do so. to at
tend; for these dry farms are likely to
prove such a valueble object lesson to
the farmers as to be literally worth mil
lions to them throughout the State.
The following Is tho . Invitation and
Experiment SlatIon,( Logan, Utah, June 2S,
Dear Sir: The crops growing oru tho
farms established last year under tho au
thority of the State, for the purpose of as
certaining tho possibility of growing use
ful crops without Irrigation upon the
lands of Utah, are now, In many cases,
approaching maturity. It is desired to
give the farmers of the localities in which
these farms aro situated a clear under
standing of tho work attempted, and of
tho results nlreadj' obtained. To accom
plish this purpose, excursions' to tho va
rious farms havo been arranged, us fol
lows: The Juab county farm (four miles south
of Ncphl). Thursday, July 7lh; demon
strator, Dr. John A. Widtsoe.
Tooole county farm (twelve miles west
of Tooele and seven miles south of
Grantsvllle), Friday, July Sth; demon
strator. Professor Lewis A. Merrill.
Iron county farm (four miles west of
Parowan). Saturday, July Dth; demon
strator, Professor William Jardlne.
Those interested should meet at the dif
ferent farms promptly at 11 o'clock on tha
days set for tho excursion. At that time
tho demonstrator and the local foreman
m chargo will conduct the parties over the
different plats and explain tho plans of
the experiments and the causes thut have
resulted In success or failure as far as
they are known. Tho crops aro now in
excellent condition, and a day spont oTTtho
farms will undoubtedly furnish the visit
ors with much profitable Information.
It Is suggested that the excursionists
bring their lunch with them. The foremen
of tho farms will havo on hand an abun
dant Bupply of lco cold water and lemon
ade. All arc invited to be present, the wo
men as well as the men. Very respect
fully yours. JOHN A. WIDTSOE,
The official organ of 4 he Russian army
says that a decisive engagement Is not
ponding, In spite of the reports that it
is, This means, then, ft that organ Is
right, that the Russian army under
, Gen. Kuropatkin has succeeded In ex
tricating Itself from ltl perilous posi
tion. The facte appcorA J.o rbe that
Kuropatkin sent a heavy culumn south
ward to the relief of Port Arthur; the
Japanese were alert, struck that relief
column in flank, and gave It, such a
8cvere drubbing that Kuropatkin had
to go to Its relief with all the force at
his command, to save it from annihila
tion. The Japanese General Kurokl In
turn got active and threatened Kuro
patkin and his main army, which was in
a dangerous position. The supposition
generally entertained has been that
Kuropatkin has gone too far south to
be able to get back without a battle,
In which tho advantage of position, and
probably of numbers, wou'cl be with tho
Japanese. And that Is In fact, the true
position now, unless tho Russian army
organ alone of all the world has nowa
not accessslble to those nt the front. So
far as the news Indicates, that decisive
battle Is still Imminent, und cannot be.
The Prohibition National convention
at Indianapolis has put forth a platform
that Is well expressed and clear In tone.
It calls for things, to be sure, that are
wholly outside of the National Jurisdic
tion, but with the ascendance of the
Prohlbjtlon Idea3 and the. majority of
ihc people adhering to them, of course
the government could be changed lo
suit tho demand.
. The nominee for President, the Hon.
Silas C. Swallow, Is a consistent rep
resentative of the sentiment of the con
vention; he was born at Plains, Penn
sylvania, March 5, 1S39, received a line
education, and has done excellent work
In the ministry, and aa editor of the
Pennsylvania Methodist, and superin
tendent of the Methodist b)ok rooms
at Harrlsburg. He lias long taken an
active Interest and part In politics; In
1S97 ho published an expose of Penn
sylvania politicians which was con
sidered to be libelous, und he was tried
on the charge of criminal libel, but
acquitted. He ran for State Treasurer
of Pennsylvania In 1S97, receiving 118,
000 votes; and for Governor In 1S9S, re
ceiving for that ofllce 132.000 votes.
The nominee for Vice-President,
George W. Carroll of Texas, Is not well
known to the public, but noldoubt he Is
a first-class man, and worthy of the
high alms of the convention.
Of course, granting the premises of
these gentlemen, that you can prevent
man from drinking by saying In a stat
ute that they shan't do It, and also
granting that the power to do that j
rests In the National Government, there
is no reuson to object to the Prohibi
tion party. But ns both assumptions
are fallacies, and as the alma and pur
poses of the gentlemen engaged in this
movement are far short of providing
otherwise for the needs of the public ad
ministration, tho well-meaning persons
who have this movement In hand must
fall very far short of making an effect
ive appeal to the American people.
HAIL, HAPPY COLOMBIA!
Colombia, despairing of any effort to
recapture and suppress the inhabitants
of Panama, lo apparently about to start
a civil war. It must fight somebody:
why not itself? There is no reason In
the world. Besides. It would be quite
in accordance with precedent; Colombia
has had many revolutions, and many
changes of dictators. Gen. Reyes may
be the new one, as it has been an
nounced several times that he has been
elected President, but that no one
seems to really know whether he was
Probably It doesn't much matter,
anyway; for elections there are not as
in the United States; even an Iron
framed returning board Isn't a circum
stance to tho "cinch" which the Gov
ernment has In the control of elections
in Colombia. The present ofTlclals will,
of course, hold on In office until the
new ones give satisfactory guarantees
of taking care of them. But, if such
guarantees are not forthcoming, the
officers elected will never know the re
sult of the election, and the Incumbents
can be ousted only by force. And In
case of the change being allowed, on
guarantees, and those guarantees are
not satisfactorily kept, a revolution will
be the Immediate, the natural, and the
Happy land!- Admirable people!
Skillful politicians! What is material
advancement and prosperity, compared
with the political freedom and excite
ment which they enjoy?
It is denied from Washington that
the United States ever guaranteed to
protect the smaller republics of this
hemisphere from "proper demands"
of European powers. Well, nobody said ,
that any such guarantee had ever
been made, or even proposed. But tho
question Is, -what are proper demands?
Germany, for Instance, might have
thought It quite proper to demand a
coaling station from Venezuela, In 4he
contention with that power; there was
In fact more reason for It than for the
seiuro of Kiau Chau in China. But
the Monroe doctrine might have made
trouble in such an exaction upon Vene
zuela, while there was no power or
sentiment to protect China. But the
case Is not helped In the least by the
1 use of the phrase "proper demands;"
the very question at Issue Is what la
proper, and right there Is liable to be
Constantinople bought ten thousand
sewing machines Inst year, which is a

that two-thirds of these machines were
of American make. The other sources
of manufacture were one-fourth Ger
man, and the remainder divided In small
fractions betweon England, Austro
Hungary and France. The Americans
Introduced the manner of selling on the
Installment plan, making the weekly
payments as low as forty cent. The
prices, too, arc, very low; the German
machine sells for from 58.12 to J10.HO,
the popular model Belling for $8; the
American machine sells for $22. with 10
per cent off for cash, the tailor's and
shoemaker's machines selling for more;
the English machine sells for from $11
to $30. Eighty per cent of all the ma
chines in use are hand machines,
though tho German can be converted
to a pedal machine.
FIGHTING AGAINST HER OWN GOLD.
From tho Washington Po3t.
A singular fact, Incident to tho strug
glo between Russia and Japan, Is
chronicled by the London press us a
thing not dreamed of when the Japan
ese forecounted tho cost of the war.
Since the first of the year Japan has
exported some $30,000,000 In gold In pay
ment of military equipment purchased
abroad. Nearly all of this money, It Is
stated, has found Its way Into Russia's
war chest, and Is being used In the ope
rations against the power that unwit
tingly supplied the wherewithal. For a
people to have their gold come back to
them through tho cannon's mouth Is not
a pleasing experience, ns we are as
sured by the London editors.
Tho process which made It pos3lble
for St. Petersburg to draw the gold
shipped from Tokyo was simple enough.
The gold was shipped from Japan to
San Francisco and thence to New York,
In transit to London. As Paris was at
that time drawing heavily on London
for gold with which to take up tho Rus
sian war loan, the Japanese gold was
deflected from Its primary destination
and sent direct to Paris from New
York, invested in Russian bonds, and
Eent on to Su Petersburg.
RAILROADS IN DARKEST AFRICA.
From tho New York Prcso.
II seems only the other day that ex
plorers were gaining fame by .penetrat
ing to regions of Africa through which
one may now ride In a drawing-room
car. Last Wednesday4 the first through
train left Cape Town for Victoria Fulls,
on the Zambesi river, near where Liv
ingstone died, and on the edge of that
region the exploration of which mado
Stanley famous. With the opening for
traffic of this southern section of the
Cape to Cairo road half the splendid
dream of Cecil Rhodes' a dream which
caused men of lesser minds to say that
he wns touched with madness becomes
materialized into a prosaic, working
fact, a matter of freight rates, time
tables and tips to the Pullman porter.

Tho story Is told of a teacher of Indiana,
at Hampton, Vu., who was reading them
the parable of the Ten Virgins by the aid
of an Interpreter; as she read, she noticed
a furtive smile on tho faces of her usually

quire the cause, discovered that, owing to
tho paucity of the Indian dialect, which
made tho same word sorve for virgin and
old maid, the story, as It was sifted down
through the interpreter, was lo the effect
that "ten old maids lighted their lanterns,
