Secretary of the Socialist Committee
Gives Out a Statement Regarding
Ballots Cast Tuesday.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12. Leaders of the
'Socialist party claim that Eugene V.
Debs, the party's candidate for Presi
dent, polled over 50,000 votes In the re
cent election, or over -1 per cent polled,
according to a story to be printed by
the World. Four years ago Debs polled
07,730 votes. Party leaders say that over
100.000 votes were cast for Debs In Illi
nois last Tuesday. In speaking of the
division of the vote In the leading
States, the secretary of the Socialist
party says In a statement:
"The States showing the greatest
ratio o Increase ore Illinois, Ohio, Min
nesota, Wisconsin; Pennsylvania, Mich
igan and California, The news from
Washington estimated a large Increase,
but no figuros are given. The only de
creases reported arc from Massachu

former State being half o that cast

Increases in. States.
"Illinois gives 100,000, New York about
40,000; Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin
and California about 30,000 each, and
Minnesota, Mlpourl, Indiana and Iowa
between 15,000 and 20,000 each. Massa
chusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and
Washington give from 10.000 to 15,000
each; Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho. Utah.
Oregon, Montana and Texas from 5,000
to 10.000 each; Maine, Maryland, North
Dakota, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Alabama,
Arizona, Connecticut, New Hampshire,
Tennessee and West Virginia should
give from 2,500 to 5,000 each. Arkan
sas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Rhode

1,500. The two Carollnas together did
not give more than 500,"
Debs's Vote in New York.
Debs made a good run in New York
City. Although the ofllcial tabulation
has not been completed returns at the
bureau of elections show that Debs re
ceived 24,294 votes in the greater city.
In Massachusetts Debs got 12.3S4 votes,
or less than 3 per cent. In Connecticut
he polled 3.500, in Rhode Island S00, and
in Vermont 747.

American Party Claims.
I havo considered most thoughtfully the
claims of tho American party and tho
campaign that it has waged From the
very nature of things lt cannot accomplish
that which many of my friends who havo
Joined It declaro to bo Its purpose. It ap
peals to the passions of men and not to
their reason. Their prejudices becoming
aroused, they become unfair and they
believe that extremely serious conditions
exist when In reality there ls little foun
dation for such belief This new party
drives the people apart. I bellcvo that
tho people should be brought together.
I believe that wo should be charitable
and conservative and I am convinced that
more can lie done for Utah along the lines
that I shall follow than there enn bo dono
along tho lines of the American party
campaign. And thus believing I consider
that this Is a time when men and women
should not lose their heads. The question
ought not to bo "What will gratify my
prejudlce" But it ought to bo "What
Is best for Utah?" And this question all
thoughtful men and women should con
sider. Was It Worth. While?
And now In nil kindness let mo refor to
the campaign that was waged by tho
American party and Inquire: "Was It
worth while?" What has been accom
plished? Have any abuses been correct

Many thousands of votes were enst for

As a result of the organization of this

Thoy were concentrated within tho Re

Suppose tho Mormons were waging a cam

Gentiles were Jn harmony concerning oth

u common peril. Personally, I know that
as a result of the organization of tho
American parly and tho kind of campaign
that It waged, my defeat was made cer
United the Mormons.
Tho fight made by the American party
hammered the Mormon people together
As I recall the facts, tho American party
was born from a grievance arising In the
Republican State convention, concerning
which tho Democratic party had nothing
to do. It wap claimed by members of
the American party, that tho Republican
candidates for Congressman and Gover
nor were nominated by reason of the
cccleslaatlclsm of Senntor Reed Smoot.
Tho campaign of the American party
mado certain tho election of the very can
1 dldates whoso nomination was complained
of. Instead of being able to rebuke Sen
ator Smoot, tho American party aided his
campaign. It did nothing toward defeat
ing thoso who were alleged to be the ben
eficiaries of church influence, but it was
nblo to, and it did bring to tho surface a
bitter and unrelenting spirit among the
people Was that "worth while' ?
Was It Paying Proposition?
Was It a paying proposition to make
certain the election of those whom tho
American party desired to see dofoated,
and to ignlto the llamcs of religious pas

The conditions In Utah require thought,
calm consideration and a "square deal

Japan's Patch-Work Farms.
Why, the whole country looks like a
piece of crazy patch-work. In shapes as
fantastic as ever our grandmothers cut
from odd scraps of silk and velvet, to
piece laboriously together with a "cat
stitch" done In multi-colored flosees.
And this is why, perhaps, that In the
wheat-thrashing and rice-planting sea
son the country looks so lively, crowded
as it Is with laborers, a whole family on
each little patch of ground, bobbing
about under their huge mushroom
shaped sun hats. And they are happy,
these odd little folks, although the best
of them make hardly more than fifty or
seventy-five dollars a year, upon which
families must be reared and educated.
Riding in a JInrlklsha along the narrow
roads between the rice llelds, one passes
group after group, knee deep In the un
speakably filthy mud, laughing and
Blnging and playing about their work
like a lot of happy children. The pro
cess of rlce-ralslng Is not the simplest
thing in tho world, and, considering the
fact that there are practically no farm
animals in Japan, and only the rnost
primitive of agricultural implement?,
with which half the farm land has been
literally made in terrace beds upon the
mountain slopes, the success attained
by the people is remarkable. Eleanor
Franklin In Leslie's Weekly
London Weekly Press
Talks of Roosevelt
Splendid Tributes Paid tho President;
All Dwell at Length on His
LONDON, Nov. 12. The weekly news
papers issued today devote considerable
space to the Presidential election In the
United States and all dwell lengthily
upon the personality of President
Roosevelt as the prime factor in the
Republican victory. The most notable
article appears in the Spectator, which
preludes a splendid tribute to the
President with the admission:
"Four ourselves, we do not profess
any special liking for the Republican
party," while in the same paragraph it
says the result of the election ls "a
subject for congratulation throughout
the English-speaking wr.r!-.!." The
Spectator then asks;
"What will he do with lt?" and pro
ceeds to credit Mr. Roosevelt with an
Ideal programme for the next four
years, the standard of which will be
"reason, Justice, moderation and com
Discussing the prospective policy of
the American Government in relation
to foreign affairs the Spectator savs
President Roosevelt will not be afraid
to Insist that the United States shall
hold her own among the great powers
of the world, but he will not seek for
eign entanglements. The paper con
tinues; "If the Monroe doctrine ls not to be
consigned to the political waste paper
basket lt must rest In the last resouvee
upon naval and military power, and If
America has not a fleet strong enough
to say 'thus far and no further" to
those who shall challenge the doctrine
that doctrine in the future will not
prove worth the paper on which the
Presidential message of 1S23 was writ
ten." Will Be Lesson for All.
After predicting that the Panama ca
nal will be completed by President
Roosevelt, the Spectator says:
"In the far East and In all that con
cerns the future of China we may ex
pect the President, acting under the
advice of Secretary Hay, who io now
unquestionably one of the ablest, if not
the ablest, of living diplomatists, to
maintain the attitude already adopted."
Concluding, the Spectator says:
"We believe his administration will
leave indelible traces upon tho larger
part of the English-speaking rnce and
that for the whole of that race will be
a lesson In and a sound example, of
sound, sane government."
The Speaker and Saturday Review
take a less enthusiastic view of Presi
dent Roosevelt's foreign policy. The
Speaker says lt is represented by a de
termination to "get there Just the same,
which, Involving, as it does, a disre
gard of treaties and the employ of
armed force upon the slightest provoca.
tion or pretext, represents a grave danger."
