TO THE NEW BOSS.
To Nineteen Hundred Seven;
Ton look, to be a vigorous chap and
your whole makeup seems to be ting
ling with life and energy. On tho in
stant that the finger of Old Father
Time pointed to the hour of midnight
last night we saw you almost bump
into your prcdecssor as he was taking
That sort of promptitude and energy
looks good to Salt Lakers. Tn fact, we
confidently expected it, because your
predecessor made tho promise that the
young fellow to whom ho would assign
the prosecution of his work should be
capable of just, doubling up all of his
Xow. for your information, sir, let
us say to 3'ou .that Nineteen Hundred
Six, Esqr., set a mighty lively indus
trial pace here, and if 3-ou are to ex
ceed, his speed you must, necessarily
'"go some." It would require quite a
book in which to relate all that he
did. so your work is certainly cut out
for you during the twelve months that
you are to be with us.
Your immediate predecessor found
some of us to be rather a slow lot, ex
cept, that by the aid of some progres
sive, ones Mr. Nineteen Hundred Five,
in the latter part of his slay with us
(and having a sort of prophetic, eye to
the future), had laid an American fouiv
dntion upon which his successor might,
begin to build. Your immediate pre
decessor seemed to thoroughly apprccii
ato (he valuable legacy which came to
him, and he at once took advantage,
of it to the fullest; extent. And tho
way in which he proceeded to tear
Town the old and build up. the "new
was n "caution! "
Before you get any further along
with your plans let us say to .you, first
of all, that your predecessor set out
to construct here tho Greater Salt
Lake: and be worked wonders of mag
nificence in that direction. He did
just about all that any industrious con
structionist could possibly do in a sin
gle twelve-month; and he left things
in such good shape for you that if you
got to work and etay at work all the
time 3'ou will be able to beat his rec
ord by several city blocks.
But remember that, there are. just
three hundred and sixty-five days in
your period of activity. That is a very
short stay to make, and we therefore
suggest to you that there isn't a wink
of sleep coming to yen in that time;
because there- is a littlo pleasure to
be squeezed in between the different
big works which you are to. perform, so
that taking your work and play to
gether it seems to be a case of GO
all the time for you. You can readily
see, .voting sir, that some portion of
your activity must be alive and awake
every minute of the time,
v You .remember what your predecessor
whispered into your car just as he was
leaving Well, we are Teady for it
now and can make good use of 'every
cent of it. He "loosened up" to the
limit, and 3-011 can see the result? of
his .generosity iu the great preparations
which have been made for 3-011.
Every American soul of us in this
town is with you and w'ill keep step
wilh you in the big Progress March,
You are a mighty hcalth--looking
youth and we can use every ounce of
energy .which .you possess. We want
the Greater Salt Lake, Mr. Nineteen
Hundred Seven. Here arc tho mate
rials and the tools it is up to 'ou!
The 3 ear 1906 has been one of general
activity and large accomplishment in
all this mountain region, Utah hns been j
much blessed, and blessings have come
nlsoupon Idaho, Nevada., Wj'oming,
Colorado and Montana.
Tdaho has prospered greatly. ' Her
mines have yielded well, her agriculture
has been profitable. The great reclama
tion projects have brought thousands of
si-ttlcrs into thu State; now farms in
large colonies, occup3'ing tho valley of

arc opened and opening; and new towns
forming lively and promising centers of
trade are springing up. It is a great
prospect thaj. is before Idaho iu every
material way. And with this Influx of
new population and the growth of
wealth and communication, Idaho will
be one of the foremost of Western
Nevada has again become the great
booming bonanza State- Tho magnifi
rent mining discoveries have thrown
cur western neighbor once more into the
glare of a brilliant world attraction.
The golden scepter is hers, and there
are Marvelous finds of daily report. The
ustoniHhing tinds in the Tonopnh, Gold
field, and Bullfrog camps are being ri
valed by newer aspirants for public
favor, and all have substantial reason
for making claim to attention for their

TO THE AMERICAN CITY ADMINISTRATION.
Qontlemc-n of the American part3 who hold office in tho mnnici-
pality of Salt Lako are invited to consider a fejv respectful and "
earnest words, delivered to them by The Tribune in behalf of its love
for the part' famo and its devotion o the welfare of this commu-
When you camo into 3'our oflicial station you were thereby made r
consecrate to a Cause which was great.pr in its magnificence and moro
hol3" in its purpose than an3 interest of .your own as individuals or T
an.y ambition of your own for place and power. Utah had been suf
fering for j-cars under tj'rannj" and misgovernmenr. Salt Lake had
boon retarded in her upward reach by the .world-wide knowledge ou
the part; of mankind that the supreme figure in the community was a
law breaker and a false prophet.
It; was to redeem first, tho city from such misrule nnd such bad
famo in the Nation, and then, b3 force of successful example of
American government, here, to lift thft State from its slough of des
pond, that political authoritj' was entrusted to 3our hands.
How have 3-011 maintained tho mightj" Cause to which 3'ou were
pledged by every honorable obligation that can be imposed upon
mankind? Have you Bhown such n shining devotion to the public
weal that tho whole city rises in acclaim of praise of American party
rule? Have you demonstrated to Utah that, a superior care of her
funds, that the interests of her taxpayers, that, tho progress of her in
stitutions, that, tho harmony of nor public life will .be conserved if
her people will place in hands like 3'ours tho government of the State
and her counties?
Sit down with yonv consciences for an hour this New Year's
morning and ask 3ourselves if 3011 have done the best that it wajj
in you to do to make Salt Lake City the best, governed municipality
in the Nation, and whether at. all times you have had before 3-our
c3-es tho guardian remembrance that, as you should serve tho city
with sublime faithfulness, so would American redemption of Utah be ;
Doubtless some among .you can answer that in all the respects of
fidelity to trust, scrupulously honest guardianship over' public funds,
aggressive determination to win high fame for tho city so that the
undying principles of Americanism might find readier acceptance in
this commonwealth you are without reproach in conduct and 3011
arc without fear of public scrutiny and judgment. The Tribuno knows
1 that there are some such among 3"our numbers. But all the people
of this community are wey aware that not all of 3ou can give to
3'ourselvcs tho magnificent endorsement of conscientious approval.
There has been t.0'0 much, with some of you, of self seeking, of ar
rogance, of determination io build personal machines within 3our
.own politicnl domain for personal purposes, And this should bo your
da.v of accounting Io your own sense of right for .your own failure to
live by that sense of right.
Americanism is a Cause a Cause to which over3 man in the
part3 should give his sustaining help, without one thought of self to
detract, from his highest service, without one selfish plotting for his
own advancement, without one enrichment of mone.y or power taken
from the Teoplo !s Own. Where men are devoted to such sublimo pur
, . pose there is no room for factional quarrel; there is no opportunit3- for
the individual to build his personal machine to protect his political
power, regardless of the fate of tho common cause; there is no occa
sion for the accumulation of funds for public improvement at the
cost of the taxpayer, such funds to remain unexpended for an indefi
nite period. Some of .you have failed to appreciate that the Ameri
can party was not brought into existence in order to give political
office to an3 man or to maintain in office an3 particular group of
men or to give public patronage to, an3' ..select individualities. . Tho
part3"'s birth was in the people's need; and not all of "you have
given 3'our best services as an answer to that need.
So .far as Tho Tribune is concerned, it has hail but one moti.ve
in this mighty controversy and that motive has been to secure for
Utah the full glorj of her Statehood; peace and progress at home
and high famo abroad. The onlv' reason why The Tribune favored
American part.y nominees for City office "was becnuse of a belief
that, they would unite to this might' end. To the Cause of American
ism in this State, -The Tribune is more than ever devoted deter
mined to uphold the principles of civic righteousness here, determined
to maintain; tho part' integrity and determined to reprehend all
events and nil personages, whether official or otherwise, who dero
gate from the exalted demands wliich this State makes upon her citi
zens. None need take offense at this plain speaking on the part of this
newspaper. The Tribune has watched earnestly and solicitous- dur
ing the 3car which has just closed earnestly regardful of tho fact
that men placed in trying public position should have a fair opportu-
nitv' to demonstrate their own worth nnd the advantage of their poli
cies, and solicitously expectant of the best, results. At. the dawn of
the Now Year conscious that there ha3 been some serious disap
pointment it is the duty of a public journal, trusted by the peoplo
to guard their interests, to make especial demand that the mis
takes, the blunders, the selfishness which have characterized some
American party voilicials during the past year, shall he eliminated
from their public life during the time to come.
Tho whole Nation looks to the American party of Utah to work
out the destiny of this commonwealth. And that expectation on the
part of the peoplo of this great Republic must not be disappointed.
Amerieaus in office must- be held to as strict an accountability nr.
we would hold the old regime. So far as The Tribune is concerned,
it. has demanded, of them and it will continue to demand the highest
form of service that humanity can give to the public need.
Gentlemen of the City administration of Salt Lake, it is within
your power to mnkc honor for tho name American in this State; it.
is within your duty to afford such a CM3- administration here as
will at once "conserve tho best interests of this municipality, and
mako the people of this sovereigut" of Utah anxious for an enlarge
ment of American rule for the upbuilding of the State. Onl3' so' far
as 3'ou do this are 3011 wortlo' to bear the name American; and
onl so far aE you do this should the part3' or will The Tribune sup
Cherry Creek mark thorn as the seat of
a vastly prosperous and permanent, min
ing region. Nevada's 'ear has been the
most sensational of all, and with the
best of basis for the sensations. But
great as the record has boon, the com
ing year will, beyond question, put. it
into eclipse. And it is not' aloue in
mines that Nevada has come to the
front?: She lias one of j.he verj' largest
and most important of the irrigation
enterprises that are under wnj', in the

Wyoming hns progressed well, with
her mining interests. Her great coal

to supply the demand of the extensive

to Lander and the northwestward

SOME REAL ESTATE MEN.
A strange lack of intelligence is
shown by gome of the beneficiaries of
Salt Lake's recent progress. Two
years ago, before American party power
had been established here, and before
the cit3 had become known throughout
the land as having cast off hierarchical
shackles in politics, some of the real
estate men were deploring "the fact
that no new people were coming
here, that no new capital was flow
ing in. These same men found that
business multiplied when this cil3r ob
tained the greatest advertisement of
its career that the American party
was in power in Salt Lake. Tho
dealers in real cstato discovered that
every house could be rented at a
premium; that owners of land who
formerl.v desired to sell and get away
from this afflicted communit3 were now
anxious to remain and increase their
And yet some of these same real
estate men pause between sales long
enough to nsk that the great contro
vers3" in Utah shall be brought to an
end b3 recession of the American party
Let us see what the conditions then
would be: With Joseph F. Smith and
those who sympathize with him ruling
in this communit3- not a Mormon would
sell an inch of ground for Smith ad
vised his people in a public sermon
not to dispose of the lauds of Zion
to their enemies, the Gentiles. He
boasted that he had never parted with
one atom of the soil to an outsider.
Utah would be shunned as a plague
spot if peace were established here un
der the conditions which the liie
rarchs demand. " The quietude which
the rulers of tho church and their
political allies desire is a quiotudo where
Joseph, F. Smith and his associates
shall be permitted to do as the.v please,
utterly regardless of the decencies of
However, the high sentimentality of
this great, question is be'ond the appre
ciation of some of the selfish men who
rail against The Tribune and its work;
and therefore the onh' argument that
they can understand is the sordid one
that, the old rule would injure their
pockets. Such is the fact, and it in
strange that the3" cannot appreciate
Under the domination of the old
regime Utah was outstripped 03 sur
rounding States in the race of progress.
Under American rule Salt Lake is
the best business city on the continent
in proportion to wealth and popula
tion. The man who would change
back to the old conditions at the price
of peace and prosperit3 "ccds a busi
However, the ungrateful class is the
smaller one. The majority of the
real estate men iu Salt. Lako under
stand the elements which go to make up
the city's progress, and they are
determined" to maintain the American
name, the American fame, and Ameri
can prosperit3' for the American Salt
Lake. They know that the real
knockers are the hierarchs, and they

BIG PEI3S FOR LAWYERS.
D, Michael Uelmas. the San Fran
cisco lawyer, who will lead for the de
fense in the Thaw murder trial. New
York, gets a retainer fee of $100,000.
When David Dudley Field was counsel
for tho Eric railroad as recently as 1880.
is was deemed preposterous that he re
ceived a stated salary of $7n,000. Dan
iel Webster, who was no small lawver,
boasted of a fee of $15,000 for a case
which he carried through all the courts
to the one of last resort. It was the
high-water maTk for the pft'v of lawvers
up to that, lime. When Sn'mucl Tilden
took a $50,000 fee from the Chicago &
Galena railroad (now tho Chicago &
Northwestern). G. M. Wheeler, whose
name is earned on a watch niRde at
Elgin, where he established the fnctorv,
was the treasurer of tho road and paid
the check with groans and sighs. Neith
er Alexander Hamilton nor Aaron Rurr
ever received greater p.i3' in an.y case
than $10,000. Kut the eorKrnti'on at
torney who drew tho articles for the
formation of the Stocl Trust received
$5,000,000 in cash and interest paving
bonds. The largest fee ever paid in a
criminal case in the East heretofore
was that; exacted by David B. Hill for
arguing the appeal of Patrick, now un
der sentence of death in Sing Sing
prison. He got $75,000 for his profes
