GOOD PURE FOOD WORK,
Tho Tribune this morning prints n
fair summary of tho annual report, of
Mr. AValter .1. Frnzicr, food and dairy
commissioner for this city. Tlia work
shown to bo dono vindicates itself bc
foro the public, and Mr. Fnrior makes
a faithful, honest, and admirable report
of tho oporations of his jurisdiction fur
That conditions have improved enor
mously in tho pure food supply during
the past .year there can not be the least
question. Neither, can there bo ;i 113
doubt nt all but that Mr. Kimier him
self has .boon the main factor in bring
ing about 1 his vast improvement. There
appears, however, to be ono thing that
he can not roach, and that is ihr bail
egg question. Although it is practical
to determine whether eggs aro fresh and
sound or not. it seems that thero no
1 practical way under tho ordinance 01"
, condemning tlnso that, oijght not. to be
placed on sale. However, it is possible
that there may be an amendment to
tho ordinance- in this particular, had
that, ho will obtain tho authority lo
control tho ogg market in the matter of
purity and wholcaommoss tho same a?
he has done in milk, butter and cream.
The report details tho different arti
cles of food thai havo been dealt with
by tho commissioner during tho year. Tt
details the clci-nsing of the dairies and
putting them in good condition and. in
fact, it is a satisfactory and complete
allowing of tho work dono. That work
is' much to be commended by llm pub
lic that long suflercd from impositions
in impure foods and bogus imitation
materials of various kinds. Tho Trib
une congratulates Mr. Frazior o:i his
work, and Salt Lake City upon Slaving
such an efficient, honest, and conscien
tious official in charge- of that work
SETTLING THE CAUSE.
The increase in the prices of foods
and the necessities of life has caused
a great deal of speculation, and invited
many solutions. Prof. W. G. Sumner
of Yalo says that "the increased pro
duct, of gold and the increase in cur
rency aro the only things known to
mo that would cause a general rise of
prices."- Prof. Clivc Day, also of Yale,
ihinks that, the increased gold supply
is the chief reason. Prof. E. Ti. A, Se
ligman, of Columbia, agrees with Prof.
Day. as also does Prof. W. F. Wilcox
of Cornell. Prof. J. W. .Tenks, of Cor
nell suggests several solutions, the in
creased gold supply being first; and
next, increased cost of production de
pending in part, on the increased gold
supply; third, advance iu rents and
land, also in part dependent upon the
first clause; fourth, in certain cases
probabl", the tariff rates; fifth, in cer
tain cases also, short crops. T11 tho
opinion of Prof. James AV. Crook of
Amherst, the most far-reaching cause in
raising prices is the phenomenal in
crease in gold supply. Prof. Irving
Fishor of Yalo considers tho increased
gold supply as "the most important, in
fluence hy far." On tho other hand,
Prof. David Kinloy of the University
of Illinois considers the prime cause
"the increased cost of production of
raw material due lo tho necessity of re
sorting to inferior land, on account of
the extension of population." But he
gives the increased gold'supp' a place
among the causes which he assigns.
Prof. T. N. Carver-of Harvard saysi
that in his opinion "the chief causo of
tho upward movement of prices is in
creased gold supph". But the editor
of tho .Journal des Fconomistcs, Paris,
rojccls absolutely the 11101103' theory and
gold production as the cause of rising
prices. He thinks that money, inflation
has no influence. But Prof. Joseph
French Johnson, dean of the New York
Universit3 comhals the Frenchman's
idea, claiming that the prices of com
modities are merely an expression of
the value of gold under our monetary
sj'stem. and he considers that the
French editor might about as well un
dertake to refute tho. assertion that, tho
shortening or lengthening of the yard
slick docs not. affect, tho amount, of
cloth measured off in nominal 3'ards.
Byron W. Holt, reading a paper be
fore the American Association for the
Advancement, of Science recently, pre
dicted such a continued increase in gold
production that in lf)20 prices will have
advanced 50 per cent above the present,
level. Prof. Taussig considers that no
ono can predict what the future of
prices will be, and he considers it prob
able that, prices will continue lo rise
during tho next decade, but not as fast
nor as much as during the decade just
past ; and Prof. Scligman agrees with
this. Prof. Fisher says that it is high
time wc should appreciate the fact that
gold is not a stable standard any more
than is any other metal or commodity.
Its fluctuations (that is, tho inverso fluc
tuations in the price levels') introduce
a gambling element into trade which is
injurious, and which among other effects
tends lo produce periodic rises, and
upon this the Springfield Republican
(from which we obtain the data given
herein) comments; "So in truth goes
glimmering all that talk oflStl6 about
the gold dollar as being the one 'sound'
and 'stable' and 'honest' dollar," and
it thinks Hint "if Mr. Holt's view is
correct, we should have to consider at
once the question of ' demonetizing
gold." Tt considers, however, that the
increased flow of gold into a rcsorvoir
of gold already immense' greater than
it was a decade or so ago will not. havo
the same effect as had the first great in
flux, and thcrcforo the increased sup
pb' will not have tho same relative ef
fect; and it notes also the increased cost
of producing gold, concluding that "ap
purcnUy onb' the discovery-of new gold
supplies of almost unheard-of richness
can mako the Holt prediction true, and
such a development aa that would com
pel an international -conference for tho
closing of the world's mints io its un
limited coinage,'' ivhiuh would surety
be a hi mo and futile conclusion lo 'the
t reinondously sentimental nrgu'monts in
favor of gold some years ago as being
tho 011I3' honest money melal in the
world. And then what would the stand
However, il is likcl.y that the great
exports and scion lists have overlooked
the inspired explanation as given out. in
tho Doscrct News of Janunry Dili. It
is held iu that pnper that the question
of increased prices in simply local and
not general, and ils general idea is ex
pressed that tho American parity in Salt
Lake is the real cause of I ho increased
prices of tho necessities of life. It. goes
on (0 mnko a lot of fnlso and partisan
charges against the city administration,
arraigns II10 American part 3' for wasting
money "on men who aro given jobs
for parly service and at the expense of
iho taxpayers," claims that large siiiub
are paid out above fair prices in gift
contracts, nlloges graft and jobbery
all of which it states "adds unneces
sarily to tho cost of living." Here
is a local solution which appears to be
tho inspired solution, and claim? to ac
count for flip advance in tho prico of
living horo; but. as the cause is genornl,
it must also account for tho enhanced
cost of living all over tho world. The
American part 3' in Salt Lake is respon
sible for il. all. It is impossible to main
tain that, a rise in prices which mcrcl.y
keeps pace with the rise all over the
world is due oil her in Salt. Lake or an3
other locally to local causes. General
causes arc operating everywhere, and
unless the inspired church organ can
show that there is an Amorican part'
all over the world which is inflating
prices everywhere ami that, the gold pro
duction is not responsible, .but that, tho
American party is responsible, then it
must be plain oven to ils dense intelli
gence that, it has not rcachod the final
Tt, appears to have been impressed
ven upon tho non-luminous intelligence
of tho News editor thai, his solution of
the gouoral problem was not, a happy
one; for on Tucsda3' evening he returned
to the charge, and in place of putting
the causo on the American part 3', he
concluded that at least one of the
causes, "is the over-production of gold
and tho neglect of the farms," but it
said, "there ;iro differences of opinion
about, a great, many questions, but all
now agree that it is necessary to keep
intelligent men on farms; encourage im
migrants to fako up land instead of ped
dling as a means of livelihood; to iui
provo agricultural education and mul
tiply government stations and experi
ments calculated lo diversif3 crops, to
raise the j'icld per acre, to give us great
er and greater abundance." Which is
a sort of awkward condeusation of what
Sceretao' Wilson -says in his recent, an
But what is the ninttcr with the
church-inspired solution? If it is the
American partyjn Salt Lake that is re
sponsible for the general increase in
prices of living all over tho world, why
seek for any other causo? But if the
American parl3' has nothing at all to do
with it, what idiotic trumpery it was
for the church organ to undertake as
late as last Saturdaj evening to la3 the
blame rf a universal rise in prices
throughout the world upon the American
party in Salt Lake!
COMMENDED HIS HONESTY.
Tt seems that nothing which Tho
Tribune . has to sny coucorniilg men
connected with tho Mormon church
is satisfactor3r to tho Dcserct News.
In a fit of unreasonable jealousy that
paper has this to sa3".
The Salt Lako Tribune, a paper that
lias made It a practice to tell all manner
of falsehoods .and reprint all the scur
rilous matter it can llnd about tho mar
tyred prophet, now offers a wreath of
pral.se to his son. tho president of the
Roorganlfcs. The gentleman has our sin
What Tho Tribune did was lo pay
tribute to Joseph Smith, president of
the Bcorganized Church of Jesus Christ
of Laltor-da3' Saiuts, becauso ho per
sonifies a wortlo' innovation in the
character of Mormon leadership. Tho
gontloman was severe ill, and we
expressed tho hopo that his health
would soon mend, and that he would
live nian3- more 3'cars to accomplish all
the good that it. maj' be given to man
to do. "Was that an unchristianlikc.
thing to do? Wc would say quite
as much for Joseph F. Smith under
similar circumslauccs; for while we op
pose Joseph F.'s policies and his de
liberate law-breaking, wc regard him
as a human being, entitled to
charitable thought and expression whon
such arc due. But the News is insane
iu its jealous3', and ils evil spirit is
manifested in the term, "JRcorgan
ites," as applied to the sect which
sprang from tho source of its own be
ing, but. which does not. believe in the
ndulterous practices which tho Utah
church organ defends. There is.no
greater hatred felt by men than that
which the polygamous' cult feel for
those of their brethren who denounce
pol3'gam-, and the Dcserct News is un
able to suppress that hatred in itself.
Now, wo submit to the public that
Joseph Smith of Lamoni, Iowa, is a
vastly more honest than is .losoph. V.
Smith, of Salt Lake City, Utah. The
first accounts to his followers in minute
detail for ovpr3r cent, of the money
contributed by them, to the support of
his causo; while the second employs
tho tactics of the despicable grafter
in refufcal to eny what becomes of
tho money paid over to him b3' his
dupes, and oven goes so far as lo tell
them that it is nope, of their business
what becomes of it. Upon this one ac
count alone. Tho Tribune has the Tight
lo commend Joseph Smith of Iowa, and
to condemn Joseph F. Smith of Utah.
But with respect to tho charge- made
by the Dcserct News that wc havo
uttered falsehood against tho founder
of Mormonism, wc beg that paper to be
spcoifio'nnd to show definitely wherein
wc have done so. This pupcr never
hns gone, no far as did Joseph F. Smith
at; Washington, when ho testified in the
Smool, ca'b'e, Utah's bogus prophet
there, in plain and unmistakable effect,
declared that when Joseph and Ilyrum
Smith denied tho existence of pob'g
ani3 at. Nnnvoo . they wcro liars. His
decln ration was lo the effect, that
while .Joseph and Hyrum Smith public
I3" and officially denied polygnni3 thc3'
were themselves poygn mists. These
men were Joseph F. Smith's uncle and
father, respectively. Inasmuch as .Jo
seph F. testified falsely concerning
other matters, it is barcb' possiblo that
Iho public would have regarded him
inArn l.w.I.l.. 1 1 U .
uiun: Jlillll. Jliiu liu j;i)IH; IL llllIU
further, and lied a .bit. to shield his
own fnthcr and uncle. But it didn't
suit Joseph F. to' do that ho is loo
much I lie coward. For, look 3'ou, his
own lechery was to be protected and
excused, even at tho sacrifice of the
honor of his forebears. -
Thero are so'mo groat, differences in
the characters of Joseph Smith of Iowa
and Joseph F. Smith of Utah, and
Tho Tribune is not slow to recognize
them nor backward about pointing
them out. And in doing so we arc not.
taking sides with one cause as against,
the 0II1T. We merely speak of the
men, and stand apart from them
in anything and everything that wo
deem lo be fraudulent, or of evil.
THE NEW FORESTER.
Tt appears to bo conceded all along
the line that tho Pinchot policies, so
called, aro more agreeable to the cattle
men than to tho sheep men. Accord
iugb". tho rnttlo men in thoir convention
at Denver cheer tho announcement that
friends of Pinchor. nre to be in control
of the Forestry Bureau, and that his pol
icies are to be continued. Thc- approve
also, 1)3' hearl3' applause, the appoint
ment of Mr. Henry S. Graves to take
Pinchot, s place. Graves is a friend
and said to be a follower of Pinchot in
his ideas, and will, if any ono can, car
ry out his policies. Tt is not likely,
however, that he will havo an3' great
success in (his. becauso a distinguish
ing feature- of Pinchot 's policies was to
disregard the law and substitute his owu
whims for it. No one could possibly
guess what those whims would be like
ly to be, and it is not. likob" that, any
hod3 else could be found who would
be so utlorh' contemptuous of the law
as the late forester was. So far as is
kuown. his use for tho law consisted
chioflj' in invoking it; to show that ho
was not authorized to do what, in fact;
he had done, and thereby put down his
opponents 1)3' a show of reason,
Mr. Graves, the now forester, was
bom in Marietta, Ohio, May 3, JS71.
He was graduated . from Yale in 1SD2,
look special studies in forest- in Har
vard University and Munich University-,
Germairy, and has been professor of
l'orcstr3' and director of Yale forest
school since 1900. Ho has a degree of
M. A. from Yale. He is a member of
the Washington Acndeny of Sciences,
the Connecticut Acadon' of Sciences,
the American Forestry Association, tho
Connecticut Forestry Association, the
New Hampshire Forestry Association,
and the Socioty of American Foresters.
He tis the joint author of "Tho While
Pine," a brochure that whs published
in 1S0G. -He has also 'propared various
bullo.ins on forestry for the United
States Department of Agriculture which
havo been sent throughout the country-.
There is no doubt of his expcrtnes3 and
competence for tho work which ho is
appointed to do; arid now if ho will be
governed l3' tho law and not chiefly b3'
his own whims and desires, and will hold
an impartial hand as between the dif

LIFE INSURANCE IN UTAH.
Wo obtain from tho Insurance Press
of Now York the combined statements
of business in tho several States of 173
Iifo insurance compqnics in one 3'car,
190S. As applied to Utah, two com
panies are included as doing busiuess in
this State with the following results:
Promlums received ....S 333,318
Total Income 386.177
Payments to policyholders 56,067

Tho pa3rments to policyholders were
quite small, being less than one-third
of the total disbursements of the. com
panies in this State, as these figures
show. The "income saved" item, sji.lflS,
637, shows tho net profit, of the lifo in
surance business transacted b3' those
two companies in Utah during the year
1908. This is a profit of a good deal
more than 50 per cent on the amount of
Beccnt pa3'mcnts noted in Utah aro,
Mary Judge, $10,000; John L. Wilson,
$2000; and two industrial policies
(names not carried) $278.
The1 same paper notes a largo number
of .biisinoss opportunities in insuranco
in the various states, and quite a num
ber in Ogdon and Salt Lako Cit3'. In
Ogdcn it snys there aro two opportuni
ties for accident, and health business,
one for burglary and theft, one for fidol
it3' and surety, one for liabilit3-, ono on
plate glass, and nino in lifo insurance.
In Salt Lake City it nolos two oppor
tunities in accident and health, ono in
burglary and thoft, one in fidelity and
surety, one on liability lines, one plate
glass, and seven lifo insurance. And
still, to tho averago citizen horo, it
looks as though thoeo lines wore all
reasonably well filled.
The gain in lifo insuranco policies
during tho yenr named is very large;
tho insuranco in force is great; tho to
tal nsscts, tho surplus and special funds
are stated in largo figures, and, in fact,
Utah seems to be a convenient and vorj'
profitable field for operation for this
class of business.

FRIDAY. JANUARY 14.
This in the birthday of Benedict Ar
nold. It Ik raro that tho name of Bene
dict. Arnold Is mentioned without havlnp
appended lo H "the tralltor " The his
tory of our country contains no better
examplo of a ynunpr man whoso am
bition caused hiH early downfall. Kor
many years he had iho full confidence of
tho country, and 110 one bore him greater
regnrrl than Cencral Washington. He
offered him Iho command of the northern
army. But. unfortunately for him. his
weakness was recognized by the British
officials, who wero anxious to find some
one In tho American army who would be
wllllns to betray It. In an evil hour
Arnold was templed and yielded. With
his ambition uppermost In his mind he
asked Washington to be placed In com
mnnd at West Point, recognizing that If
he could turn over the control of the
Hudson river to the British he would
hnvo such a claim of gratitude as must
eventually innuro to his highest advan
tage. Shortly after he was given charge he
was placed in corrcsiiondeneo with Sir
Henry Clinton, and sit once negotiations
for tho surrender of West Point were
begun. Major John Andre wn.s tho go
between, and but for his timely capture
Arnold would have succeeded. Arnold
fled from West Point, received si sum
of money for his attempted treason and
made a brigadier general In the British
service. Born in Connecticut, he was
compelled to find himself a. home among
tho British thereafter, and following the
war he lived In London, where he died.
Wlille. he was In Philadelphia in 177S.
ts'o years previous to becoming a traitor
to his country, he became engaged to the
pretty Peggy Shlppen, daughter of the
chief Justice of Pennsylvania, whom he
eventually married. She was with him
at West Point when ho received the
news of tho capture of Andre, and she
followed bis fortunes thereafter, dying
In London on August 24. 180-1. three years
after tho death of Arnold. His treachery
to bis country made tho best element of
the British people turn from him when
he went to make his home among them,
and only a few rabid Tories would asso
