Kj 1(5 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER S, 1912. A
Miss Hosford Considers Dem
ocratic Presidential Candi
date Marvelous Man.
DELIVERS A BIOGRAPHY
Is Guest of Honor With Gov
ernor Judson Harmon
Mifs Hester E, Hosford, noted
writer and lecturer, addressed a largo
gathering of Democrats at tho Kcnyon
hotel last evening. Most of those
at tho nice tins: woro women, who
formed nn enthusiastic portion of the
Miss Hosford's address was in tho
natnro of an intimate character J
sketch of "Woodrow Wilson, and not i
ia an j wjnse a discussion of the is
sues of the campaign. She has been
an intimate friono of tho Wilson
family many years, nud has written a
"biography of tho presidential candi
She gave a. biographical account of
Governor "Wilson, beginning with his
.Scotch-Tri&h ancestry. A. standpat Re
publican of Atlanta who had known
him as a. boy, sho paid, told her that
as n youth he had keen perception and
wisdo"mt far beyond his years. She
said this man had told her ho. was
of tho opinion that Wilson would make
a great president.
Calls Work Marvelous.
Miss Hosford look up Governor "Wil
Fon's college career, his work as a
student at Princeton, in law school, in
the practice of law, and as an ad
vanced student at .lohn Hopkins uni-
I lt.-i.. . JuiiL. jiu cimiu umi: wiii.ieu
a thesis on "Congressional Govern-
mcnt,? at tho ago of L'f), and when ho
had never visited congress, a thesis
I that is in universal use as a text book
in every advanced country of tht
j world and that is pronounced by ex
perts thn most masterly discussion of
the subject ever written, &hc cou
tt sidered marvelous.
S Miss Hosford passed over the gov-
ernor's career as a college professor
U and collego president quickly, coming
1 to his political career, dating from his
k nomination as governor of New Jersey
J two yrars ago. She spoke at length of
ni.s triumph over Tamos Smith, Jr.,
Democratic boss of New Jersey, as tho
achievement which will make "him tho
next, president of the United States.
, That Wilson could have defeated a
man whoso political niachino extended
lo even- remote quarter of the state
and whose political sagacity mado him
l ho biggest boss of anv party in
I America, sho regarded as "one of tho
greatest victories for the people in tho
a present agp.
I Was Not Bathing.
Miss Hosford was a guest at the
Wilson home at the timo tho governor
was nominated for president. She said
that the press story that Governor
Wilson was taking a bath wheu tho
news of his nomination reached him
was inaccurate. As a matter of fact,
she said, tho Wilson familv was at
dinner at Sea Girt. The governor, Bhe
I .a id, gave no visible sign of elation,
I " declared that the solemnity of tho
1 occasion affected him more deeply than
tho noj of victory.
I , Hosford reforred only briefly to
1 ( olonel Boosovelt. She said-:
There are only two kinds of states
men In this country. One kind Is those
u 0 fo,r, H'eniHelves first, lost and
all of the time. If any benefit might
occur inddcntlly to tlio body politic,
nL?l-l aTd S2?A' 'V11 !t ,B no- the
first object. Tho other type is verv
rare. It consists of those statesmen
1 w .re (or the I,eoP'e flrr.t. Ishc and
all the time, and placo all personal
Interests secondary to those of the
If I didn't believe that "Woodrow
T llson was of this latter tvp. I
" Tr,ou.,dn't be here taking to you to-
? night. As governor of New Jersey
! he appealed to that which was high
est, noblest and beat In the assembly
of New Jersey. If that did not accom-
pllsh the result, ho threatened to go
, out In the legislative districts and
: whip the legislators In Joint debate
j, before their own constituents. That
j accomplished the result.
Will Uplift Roosevelt.
It Sb characteristic of Woodrow WIJ-
mi son that hn steadfastly refuses to
slanderously assail his political oppo
HB nents has has become the prartlep
i Uh other candidates In thin cm-
imlgn. It Is Maid of Governor "Wilson
lhat he has reformed the Republican
ab well as the Democratic party in
New Jersey. Therefore I say that If
I Governor "Wilson la not elected presi
dent of the United States which
would be a miracle, for, of course, wc
all know he Is golm? to be elected
If he reforms Theodore Roosnvelt, ho
will have performed a signal service
for tho American reople. Woodrow-..
Wilson will never defend to Theo
dore Roosevelt's standard. P.nther
will he bring Roosovelt up to hi
standard. In this day of unbridled
and reckless political attacks. Jover
nor Wllfon's speeches arc filled with
refreshing and scholarly statesman
ship. Ha has never- been tempted to
descend to personal attacks. The sr
cret of his allilude Ilea In the purity
of his moral vision.
"With Governor Judson Harmon. Miss
Hosford was guest of honor at u spc-
IS yesterday. At noon she was entertained
I by fifty. Democratic women at the
i Commercial club with an elaborate
1 luncheon. Governor Harmon called at
9 the conclusion of the luncheon and
1 spoke a few words.
The afternoon was occupied with an
automobile trip. After the address
; Miss Hosford received the worn n in-
formally. Sho left at H:in o'clock for
San Francisco and will pass the next'
four weeks in California in the interest!
of the Democratic party, I
Samuel Russell opened the meeting
iRBt night with au appeal for earcful'
thought on the part of the voters. Ho
h eulogized Wilson and called attention
H! to those qualities which, he said, best
fitted the candidate for the presidency.
Mr. "Russell introduced Mrs. H. .1. Hay
ward, president of the Women's Demo
cratic club, who presided.
A feature was the excellent music.
Charming solos wero sung by Miss Xn

STATE SHOULD PI
SS DOB CITIZEN
Tho insistence by the water department
upon the collection of a $175 deposit for
a water meter from the State Fair as
sociation was the cause of a tilt last
nii;ht at the city commission meeting be
tween Mayor Samuel C Park and Coni
mlssionci W. II. Korns.
Tho argument arose over a motion by
Mr. Korns calling for Iho rebate of a yll.
Hat rate payment which Jind been made
by tho Fair association and the Insist
ence upon the collection of the deposit.
The commission was of the opinion
lhat the. Fair association should pay
for whatever water was used, tmt whs
Inclined to think that the deposit re
quired seemed out of proportion to the
water consumption. Commissioner Korp:;
took the view that tho rimo treatment
should be accorded to tho state sts la
given a. private user. Tie. said that he
had gathered this to bo the Idea of tin:
commission from a remark which ho at
tributed to Mayor Park. Tho mayor said
that he had never mado any such remarrc.
Final action on the motion was held
up by Mr. Konis's withdrawal of the mo
tion until a meeting can be held with
the directors of the asrfoclatlon.
The commission, upon recommendation
of Dr. Samuel G. Paul, health commis
sioner, confirmed the appointment of Miss

territory for statehood. Four years later,
when I was United States attorney gen
eral, the credentials presented by Utah
passed through my hands and wero ao
cepted by me as eligible. I have never
