Hi r.s Slated for Deputy County
'-The talk I bad witb you Sumlay
H, r'snrding tho carving of the olliciaj
H' pio when Governor-elect; Spry takes
B control of- staio affairs, which you
Bl printed on Monday, lius stirred up tho
Hf "hoys who have been waiting in front
of the pio counter for their slice," said
tho Prominent Politician to Tho
Hr fttrollor on Monday. "
H "Thero aro a uumbor of thoso patri-
Hj ots, each of whom labors under tho
delusion that tho result on November
3 was due entirely to his efforts, when
tho fact is that tho hierarchy nettled
the question when tho command was
piven the church Democrats to ignoro
their own ticket and voto with tho
church Republican crowd. Tho patriotic
K pie fiends had nothing whatever lo do
Hf with it.
Vj "But, regardless, they aro now
lining up in front of tho pio counlor
and will demand a ccuerous slice The
V) plea they make in that the fellows who
H) are now in havo been treated moro
Hj than generously and that they should
Hl vacate tho scats they havo so long
occupied at tho tablo and givo placo to
Bj Ono Eoyal Family Enough.
Bj "Especially do they demand that J.
Hl jr. Thomas vacato his seat. They point
Hi out tho fact that tho salary ot $1500
H which ho receives direct, tho $300 addi-
tional which ho recoivea for collecting
H a special car tax, and then tho addi-
Hfl tional salary for a clerk which, I un-
Hi dorstand, is also rccoived by a member
1 of his family, should go to others who
HJy have been howcrs of wood and drawers
H't -of water for, lol these man j-cars.
i "Thcj' likewise poiut oui; tho fact
H that, the Thomas family have had the
HU most lucrative ofliecs in Utah over
HJ since their arrival hcroj that Peowec
V) Thomas is tho most persistent in hang-
ing to his seat at tho pic counter; m
fact, they declare that it may require
Ht drastic measures to loosen his hold or
H ,iar him looso, and they likowiso declare
that his brothor, John .1., appears also
Hi to be nailed to liin chair.
Hlt "There are other boards that arc
just like tho state board of equaliza
HR tion, where the members appear to
Hjjj have a lead-pipe cinch on their scats,
H) l)ut tho hungry patriots outside arc dc-
H- tcrmincd to break the hold.
Hr Place for Prophet's Relatives.
Hji "Today 1 was told that a son-in-law
Hj of Joseph P. Smith is to bo mado as
sistant county attorney when .Tob Lyon
assumes tho duties of county attorney.
Tho son-in-law of I he president ot the
church is John P. Bowman, Up be
came a member of tho roynl family of
Utah by his marriage to u daughter ot
Edna L. Smith, ono of the plural wives
of tho prophet. Bowman was a dole
"ate to the convention which nom
inated Lyou for county attorney. One
beauty nbout church Republican poli
tics in Utah -is that the Lord always
1 cares for his own.
"In a talk I had with a Cache coun
ty fricud of mine he cavo me tho in
formation that E. W. Kobinsou, ono of
tho legislators-elect from that county,
believed that ho had a cinch on tho
speakership, as ho had been set apart
bv tho federal bunch for tho position.
This Hotting apart business, however,
is getting to be somewhat old with a
good many of the church Republicans.
They are willing that tho royal family
of Utah shall be cared for properly,
and as that family haw grown to bo j
a great tribe thero aro a good many lo
provide for; hence, when this family is
taken care of, tho places left arc row.
And in view that another family has
been hogging all tho pie, there is a
great horn going up.
Bishop Thompson in Race.
"Of course, Robinson is a good fel
low, and no doubt would make a good
speaker, but ho lias got to mako his
peace with the Salt Lako delegation.
Ton votes count for a good deal, and
the Salt Lakers might mako a combi
nation with some one who has not been
net apart. There is some talk of Bishop
Orvillo Thompson of Millard county
for speaker, but it is questionable
whether tho Salt Lako delegation could
unito upon him. Not that tho delega
tion is not made up of good church
men, but Thompson has somo views of
his own, and in view that ho is an old
member and knows the capabilities of
most of tho Salt Lako delegation ho
might want to namo his committees
"Timber for the speakership is protty
scarce, and it may bo that if the Salt
Lako delegation cannot dictato terms
to Robinson they will go to Thompson,
K referring to take their chances with
im rather than with the Logan man.
Sutherland on Marshalship.
"In tho Lord's own, tho Doscrct
News, this evening T notico that tho
junior senator has broken out with
mouth disease and unburdens himself
on tho question as lo who shall be
United States marshal for Utah. Tho
occasion for tho attack was duo to the
story of an alleged disagreement among
tho members of tho Utah delegation
over candidate for United States
marshal for Utah.
"Such a r.tory," Senator Sutherland ia
reported to havo said. "Is absolutely with
out any foundation whatever. There Is no
disagreement whatsoever anions the mem
bers" of tho delegation 'or tho simple rea
son that no discussion of tho marshalshlp
has over been brought up since election.
I have had no opportunity to talk over
tho matter with Senator Smoot nor with
ltepresentatlvo JIowoll. I am committed
to no candidate! and so far as I know
neither of tho other gentlemen has com
mitted himself. As soon as Senator Smoot
reaches Washington I expect to discuss
tho question of a candidate- with him. I
cannot understand how such an absurd
story gained currenry. Certainly In this
Instance thero Is no basis for tho yarn,
and I feel sure there will be no dis
agreement among members of the Utah
' "Now, tho fnct is, as yon know, that
Sutherland will have nothing whatever
to say about who will bo United States
marshal for Utah. The hierarchy will
decide that question indeed it has al
ready been decided upon. So the junior
senator is simply talking on the sub
ject to hear himself talk, lie cuts no
:eo when a United States marshalship
is at stake."

PRESIDENT CASTRO TO UNDERGO

CARACAS. Nov. 23, via AVllkmslad,
Nov. 21. President Castro will sail to

Guadeloupe for Bordeaux, for the purpose
of undergoing an operation at tho handa
of a skilled specialist of Berlin. Kfforis
which were made recently to havo Dr.
Israel of Berlin conic to Caracas for tho
purpose of performing tho operation failed.
Tho operation will bo performed Immedi
ately on President Castro's arrival at Bor
deaux, where Dr. Israel will bo In wait
ing. Should tho operation bo success
ful, tho president will visit. Paris, where
ho will rest for a. few days only, as ho
wishes to return to Caracas at us early
a. date as possible. " Three of the lcudlng
Venezuelan physicians will accompany
tho president and several members of hla
Tho greatest, excitement prevails at
Caracas, and political Intriguing already
has commenced. It Is thought tho de
parture of President Castro may open tho
road of tho settlement of tho Holland,
American and French disputes. Vicente
Gomez, the vice-president, will assume
the presidency. Castro today Issued a
proclamation stating that speclnl circum
stances compel him to leave for Europe
for a short time. First Vice-President
Gomo; Is constitutionally charged with
tho presidency and President Castro ur-

The president of Venezuela is suft t- i
ing from an Internal abscess In tho region

When II was announced n. .fow days i
ago that tho president had dually deter- j

cas was all excitement, and tho nrobn- I
hililles of his carrying out this programme
wero tho subject of discussion throughout :
tho city wherever ono turned.
President Castro lias never been out
of Venezuela, and It Is now felt that
extraordinary pressure must havo been
brought to bear upon him In order to I
havo him consent to tho voyage.
Especially Interesting is President Cas- I
tro's departure, hfcausc of the embarrass- !
Ing effect It is likely to havo on Hol

Castro has refused to do peacefully.
CANNON SAYS THERE WILL BE '
HONEST REVISION Of TARIFF 1
WASHINGTON. Nov. 21. Declaring
that thero will bo an honest revision 6l
tho tariff and that there Is no present
need of "fretting" nbout tho election of
a speaker for tho house In the slxty
llrst congress, Speaker Cannon arrived
here from his homo In Illinois late to
day for tho approaching session of con
gress. To the newspapermen who greet
ed him he added that he believed the
people wohld get the sort of tariff, revi
sion they had voted for.
Later he Issued a statement In which
he said ho was not attempting lo dic
tate to the house, and that through tho
system of election of members the peo
plo were certain of having their views
enacted into law. Citing an examplo of
the hasty action leading to a misinter
pretation cf public sentiment In regard
to a tariff bill, he expressed an opinion
that thero would bo no mistake mado
next summer in the revision of tho tariff.
"TJnclc Joe's" Statement.
The full text of Speaker Cannon's
"Tho election of the speaker for tho '
sixty-first congress Is yet a considerable
distance In tho future. When that con
gress Is ablo to assemble which I pre
sume will bo somo lime In March the
Republican members of the houso of rep
resentatives will hold a caucus, as has
been the custom from the foundation of
the party, and select a candidate for i
speaker to bo supported by the party at i
the organization of the house. 1 presume
that tho representatives will bo perfect- '
ly competent to select their speaker, and j
I do not sco any present need for fret
ting nbout the matter.
"WM Bo Honest Revision.
"Of course, there will bo an honest re
vision of the tariff. Wo made the cam
paign on that Issue and every Republi
can member was elected with that In
view. Every one of thoso Republicans,
without an exception, will. I believe,
strive to the best of his Intelligence and
ability to attain the tariff results desired
by tho people who elected him. All will
not have tho same views, and each ono
cannot have his own way altogether.
There must be mutual concession and
compromise, out of which will como the
result which, on the wholo. Is most ac
ceptable or least objectionable to all.
That Is according to civilized and en
llghtoned government. It Is the barbar
ian who expects to have everything his
own way, without regard to his neigh- ;
bor. Whoever Is elected speaker of the ,
next house must so perform his functions. ,
as to assist tho house In arriving at the
result which vill best represent the !
views of tho responsible party in tho ;
house, striving to carry out the will of
the people who elected him. In over
thirty years' exporlunco In the house,
sometimes under one party control, some
times under tho other, I have never seen
I the responsible party go wilfully against
what It thought to be the sentiment of !
tho people. Mistakes have sometimes '
been made, as In the case of tho Wilson j
bill, enacted by the Democratic congress. I
but I believe that tho representatives in
the house earnestly tried to do what the i
people wanted. They wero misled by the
hasty judgment passed on the McKlnley
luw in 1890, and which would not. In my
opinion, have happened had tho Republi
cans had more tlmo to explain tho bill
on the stump.
Not Republican Mistake.,
i "Tho Republicans made no mistake
when they enacted tho Dlngley law as !
tho long life, as tho lives of tariff laws
go. of that law shows, and I believe they
will make no mistake In the bill which !
they will enact next summer, with the
concurrence of the senate and the pres
"There Is one thing of which you may .
bo sure. Those representatives will do
their very best lo perform what the peo
ple want done, for they must go before
tho people In 1910 and account "for their
acts. The senator accounts for himself
once In six years: the president once in
four years, but the representatives ac- '
count onco in two years. Tho speaker !
of the house has a double accounting 1
to his constituents in his own district
and to his associates in the houso who
olect him. No representative, and es- 1
peclally the speaker, will fall to do everv-
thing within his power to carry out the
well considered. constitutionally ex
pressed wish of the majority of the 1
"This is why I believe wo shall got the !
sort of tariff revision the people voted 1
for. I do not pretend to prophesv or dic
tate. It Is and should be beyond anv
man's power to dictato to the house of
representatives. I merely speak from 1
long experience and the teaching of what -I
believe to be reason and common

I NOTES Of "IT 1
Considerable dissatisfaction was ex
pressed at tho play, "Tho Other Fellow,"
which hud been selected by a committee
of the student body at the university as
the production to be given by the dra
matic club at Its annual performance In
the winter. Miss Babcock read tho play
to those intending to try for places In tho
cast, Tuesday afternoon, but neither Mis3
Babcock nor the students wero favorably
impressed. There appears lo bo no con
sistent plot In the piece, and tho Interest
Is not sustained through tho last acts.
It seems probablo that a change will be
necessary apd that another selection will
bo mado by referring tho matter to tho
student body at large. Miss Babcock
