THE NOTIFICATION CEREMONIES..
Tho ceremonies attondlng the official
notification by the committee' ap
pointed. for that purpose, to President
Roosevelt, of his nomination to .the
Presidency, were fit, and everything
pas-ed off well. The notification speech
by Speaker Cannon le one which will
well repay the reading, being forceful,
terse, and true to the record. Mr. Can
non Is always abe to put things In a
way that Is thoroughly convincing, and
his ppeeches have the high merit also of
bearing triumphantly the cjonest exami
nation and criticism. On this occasion,
the Speaker's great qualities Shone forth
with spoclal splendor. HIS recital of
the ucto of the Republican party,, of,
the sort of opposition, it has met In Its
orderly and prosperous adminlrtratlon
of the affairs of the country, cannot fail
to be convincing to every candid mind.
Of course, the chief feature of interest
in the whole matter was the response
of the President to the addr of notifi
cation. And this speech was a model of
ItH kind straightforward, vigorous,
able; It will be one of the powerful docu
ments of the campaign.
After a brief, review of the circum
stance?) under which he became Presi
dent and-of, the faith. which he and his
party have kept with their pledges and
with the people, he was especlally
strong in showing the party's consist
ency, how Republicans have always
kept the ;'faith, and "have m,ade the
.dWl.-Quare. with tjie wprd." Then
In contrast, he draws a, picture of the
opposition' that Is well calculated to
arouw a Jus( contempt; ha men "who
now appeal for .confidence- on the
ground," which some express and somo
seek to " have confidentially understood,
that If -triumphant they may be trusted
to prove false, to every principle- which
In the last eight years they have laid
down as vita), and' to leave undisturbed
these very acts of the administration
because of -which they, atk that the ad
ministration Itself be driven from
A more concise and accurate sum
ming up of thepresent Democratic atti
tude It were' impossible to make; it fits
the cas- with a nicety that leaves noth
ing to be derfred.'And When, he proceeds
to show that what the Republicans
promise- to do Is Just what they have
been doing, In furnishing a policy that
le' continuous, that Is no experiment, and
that- proves the party's governmental
efficiency, the contrast Is perfect Fur
ther, when he again states" the attitude
of. the; .opposition, no one cari fall to see
that hie words are moat apt and cogent,
viz,; "Our opponents, elther-.openly or
secretly, according to their severaT'tem
peraments, now ask the people to trust
their present promises In consideration,
of the. fact that "they Intend to treat
their past promises as null and void."
President Roosevelt reviews the acts
of-the. administration In regard to hon
esty, showing that whatever breaches of
trust or dishonesty existed have .been
promptly punished i and, mqrcjve,r that
"the betrayals of trust In the last seven
years have been lnslgnlflcent In number
when compared with the extent of the
public service;-" And on thls head he con
cludes; "Never has the administration
of the Government been on a clc'aner
and higher level? never has the public
work, of the Nation been done more hon
estly and efficiently.'' A statement
which is at once perfectly fair and per
The President argues against a change
In the (policies which have been so bene
ficial, .and which are now working so
well. "The National honor and interest
have been upheld abroad," he proudly
Says, "We huvp placed the finance? of
the Isatloi) on. a sound gold basis," and
he ohows how It was done, and that It
was the beet possible thing for' the

financial methods compared with those
of thdi Democratic dtninletratlon that
preceded, whlcli were, prettyvnear ,the
,Th working;of the tariff iire-. recited,
and an especial contrast Js niade be
tween, tho benefits conferred, "by it, and
.the injuries jr.fllcted by. the Democratic
tariff of 1S04, the pnc. being the- work of
masters of economic science and tho lat
tdr the work of pretentious bunglers.
The-governing capacity of the Repub
lican party Is noted In Its treatment
o thq tariff and of reciprocity, and the
question is appropriately asked wheth
er we hove any, right to expect that the
opposition would under like circum
stances have achieved any practical re
sult. And, In this connection we have
this sentence, which deserves to serve
as a golden text,: "We have already
shown In actual fact that our policy Is
to do fair and equal Justice to all men,
paying no heed to whether a man la
rich or poor; paying no heed to his race,
his creed, or his birthplace."
In the matter of capital and labor,
the word is that" each must be granted
the full 'protection of the law, "and
each in turn Is to be held to a strict
obedience to 'the law; for no man Is
above It, arid no man "below It, The
humblest Individual Is to have his
rights safeguarded as scrupulously as,
those of tho strongest organization,' for
each is to receive Justice, no more and
no less." The problems or modem in
dustrial and social life arc manifold;
"but the spirit In which It l necessary
to approach their solution is simply the
spirit of honesty, of courage, and of
common sence." To which It Is Irnpoa
Slble tq, add. anything....... .
,' The beginning of thq-.work of Govern
mental aid in the reclamation of trie
lands of tho arid region J.r modestly re
ferred "to, thus: "In inaugurating the
great wock! of irrigation In thf West,
the Administration has been enabled by
Congress to take ione. .of the longest
strides ever taken under our Govern
ment toward utilizing our vast National
domain for the settler; the actual home
maker." And thcVvJsdom' and helpful
character of that aid nre left for the
future fo demonstrate.- We cannot
doubt that this demonstration in favor
of. the Roosevelt Irrigation law wlll.be
The steps leading to the successful In
auguration of work on the Panama ca
nar are narrated; our friendly Interna
tional relations are referred to; the
rapid growth of our Interests In Pacific
Is shown; our acquisition of and deal
ing with the Philippines are pointed
out, and the present position Of the
Government toward the natives Is justi
fied; and the closing paragraph, sum
ming up and glorying In the work of
the Republican party, is great.
This address will Increase President
Roosevelt's alreudy high standing as a
man of mental grasp and power; and It
will elevate him hlghcr'thah ever before
In .the esteem, respect and admiration
of his countrymen. It Is at once the
most cogent declaration of principles,
the most ample. Justification of the Re
publican record, and tho inost powerful
pica for. the. continuance of Republican
administration of the affulrs of this Na
tion, that has thus far appeared. And
we cannot doubt that the people. In
their sovereign capacity, will decide a?
the .polls on the eighth day of Novem
ber next next, that this Illustrious lead
er shall continue to be the President. pf
the .great Republic.
CITY TAX LEVY, TEN MILLS. '
The decision of the Councll'to make
the municipal tax levy one percent this
year will, we bolleve, be commended by
the public as wise. It is a compromise
flgur? between the eleven mills pro
posed by the City Auditor and the D'A
mlll3 proposed by Councilman Black.
No doubi, with something of a squeeze,
the rate proposed by Mr. Black could
have been made to do; and on the other
hand, the amount proposed by the Au
ditor would have allowed of liberal ex
pedltures and Increased public -work.
But with the ten mills, all proper ex
penditures can bo fairly met, and a
measure of public Improvements which
will, kecp.thfngs moving can be under
taken. With regard to the public Improve
ments, wo note with satisfaction that
the sentiment Is growing In favor of
stopping for, the present the paving of
ThJr.d South street at the east sjde of
Second West. To pave further would
be premature, and until the railroad
Improvements the new Rio Grande
Western depot, etc., which will be
extensive and costly, are definitely
fixed and well under way, the paving
westward from Second West on Third
South can properly be postponed. In
this connection, the paving of the south
half of the street, between Second and
Third Weat. the (cost of which would
wholly fall 'upon the city by reason of
its ownership of Pioneer Square,
should for the present, with the other
points, above noted, be conclusive
against the extension now.
The public generally will, we believe,1
readily acqulese in the tax levy as
made. In view of the fact that an In
crease over last year was shown to be
necessary; This Increase Is but small,
and the result of It will be to the pub
lic advantage. The action of the Coun
cil, adopted by unanimous vote, will no
doubt carry conviction of Its necessity
a.nd propriety to the public mind.
0GDEN SHOULD HAVE IT.
vThe Sheep Shearers' union has de
cided In Its meeting at Butte, by a close
vote, that It will not this year move Its
headquarters to Ogden. And yet, Og
den Is the proper place for . that head
quarters, being more central, much eas
ier of general access, and a far more
agreeable place fotvthe meeting. Sheep
shearers from Utah, Wyoming, Nevada,
all necessarily go to Ogdon before they
can go to Butte. Sheep shearers from
Idaho must first . go to Pocatello. and
from Pocatello the ease, cheapness, und
desirability of. going to Butte .bears no
comparison to the like features In going
to Ogden; the -latter is In every way
preferable. This leaves only Montana
to favor Butte: or, If Washington Is
counted In favor of Butte, then Oregon
must be counted In favor of Ogden.
We cannot doubt thut by next year's
meeting the advantage of transferring
, this headquarters to Ogden will be so
manifest to all, that there will be prac
tically but a perfunctory opposition to
.-The fact that the meat-packers' strike
In the Kust will bring into especial
prominence tho project of establishing a
packing plant In this city, as has been
noted in. these columns .from time to
time,: will' be something, in the way of
a "placebo.", so far as we are con
cerned, here, to t against the strike.
The packers lu Chicago are calling on
the Bhlppers to send In their stook; but
until matters are more settled there, the
shippers will be very cautious about re
sponding: to tho Invitation, for a day
or two's full shipments would be liable
to utterly smash the market. The ship
pers? will have to tuke meomircs to pro
tect themselves, and tHey can only do
this by providing against such a crisis
In future through the establishment of
packing plants of their owit; and 'one
In thlf city would fit ndmlrably Into
that scheme of protection.
Barons Alphonse, Gustavo, and Ed
mund de Rothschild have given ten
million francs for the construction of
houws In Paris fitted for the needs of
the laboring population, while the rents
are to be usod In establishing and main
taining Institutions for the comfort of
tho laboring clawex.- The Earls news
papers look upon this as the beginning
of the tiettlemcnt of.'a great question of.
social hygiene' which for'years'has been
a matter of concern'ment to enlight
ened economists. It "has always been
known that-the Rothschilds were gen
erous and charitable, but this example
of. -their quality proves that large
benefactions -aro not confined to Amer
ica or to Americans. And much more
will be made of It In Paris than would
be made of a like sum In any city of
AN ALARMING RUMOR.
From tho New York Globe.
Distressing Intelligence comes from
West Virginia concerning, the Hon.
Henry Gassaway Davis. Tt Is true his
wealth Is nearly $40,000,000,. but his local
veptuatlQn. Jt seems. Is- that of an accu
, mulator, not a spender. He began as a
brakeman and know the value of a
dollar. "He won't give them a cent." if
the alarming statement made by those
who have known the young-old gentle
man for the better part of a century.
If the event shall Justify these predic
tions, It Is manifest that someone
tricked the St. Louis convention. Be
fore it was too late another heroic tele
gram should have been sent, to the ef
fect that the signer was Irrevocably
opposed to barrel-opening, and directing
that this fact should be made known to
the convention In order that. If unfutle
factory to the majority, another nomi
nation could be made before adjournment.
