Mly Until October 1st, or thereabout, The Republican will be is-
m$ sued but once a week. This is due to the fact that our press, a
Ml. new Cottrell Triumph of the latest wake, cannot be delivered
' before that time. During the time intervening, the type setting
for each issue will be done at our office in the Ecclcs hall, over
Mi the U. 0., the material then taken to Salt Lake and there
I- printed. Alter the arrival of our press The Republican will be
I issued semi-weekly, as originally intended. We regret that at
I the start we cannot fulfill every statement made in the circular
I gotten out some time ago, but under present conditions, the
I changes made are unavoidable. A portion of our type, together
I with borders, stones ami job press, is also delayed, which makes
It our present work one continuous, vexatious difficulty, but in
I order that the citixens who have taken such a great interest in
I the establishing of the paper may understand that the institu-
', tlon is not a dead issue, we have deemed it advisable to issue
I once a week the best publication that the convenience of affairs
I will permit, and trust to the generosity of the public to receive
I it kindly. Inasmuch as the other publications of the city can
H chronicle local happenings more frequently, thus making such
I material a stale article in The Republican, until the receipt of
I ourpres. we will devote less attention to the news columns,
' and direct our efforts more along political lines. We offer the
H general public the assurance that as soon as our presses and the
M- remainder of the material reaches us, no effort will be spared to
H wake The Republican the best local paper in Utah.
H MORMON OR ANTI-MORMON.
H A short time ago "The Nation"
1 took occasion to say that the new
Mt paper (meaning "The Republican")
M was designed to express the views and
Ut -opinions of the anti-Mormons of the
Mj city and surrounding communities,
Ut and would keep up "the old tight."
Where the editor of "The Nation"
Uj got this information wo are unable to
H fathom probably out of his thumb.
M 'The statement was manifestly unfair
B .and evidently written with the lntcn-
U tlon of Injuring "The Republican" by
Mt' prejudicing the church against it even
Ut .before the Institution was an assured
U -fact. We care nothing about the
B .statement made, as it was so rldicul-
Ug 'Oils that the Nation man himself
B -couldn't believe it but it gives us an
Ut- opportunity of dctining our position
B in the matter and we arc pleased to
.assure the Latter-day Saints of our
B hearty good will. On our Journey to
Utah it was our fortune at Kansas
'City to fall In with quite a number of
- ,. .returning missionaries and we rode
with them all the way to Zion. These
HM men were as kind and courteous as
any we have ever met, and in conver-
j nations with them we came to the con-
elusion that they were sincere and
earnest in their beliefs, and however
HM great a divergence In our views of re-
ligious matters we could llnd no room
. forcensuie. During our .stay lieru wo
have had no occasion to change our
Impressions. We have found these
people worshipping a Clod as they tin-
fl dei.staud Him, and while we may not
M. y see it tliat way, jet this paper has no
light to make on that score. We l-
llcve that any deuoiuinatiou has a
right to come Into this state and com-
iuunlty and Inn Cluistian spliit, dc-
void of prejudice and lautlug, set be-
H foie the Latter-day Saints what 1 1 1 e
believe to be the tiuth, and such de-
B iioinliiatlonshave a right to expect
V klndl) treatment and should be ae-
B coi (led that. Wo also believe that t lie
M " Lattei-day Saints have the s;une
Christian right to propagate their
doct lino when and vvhcicsoevcr they
w 111, and they should ev er be accorded
a lespect ful hearing. If they believe
they have the Truth they should be
permitted to try their hand attest al
lishlug the proposition, and opposi-
HI tlon, except in a manner consistent
B with Cluistian teachings, should
HHj cease. The "Mormon" chinch will
HI receive fair and honorable tieatincut
BB In "Tlie Republican" and as soon as
BB wo get in shape to do Justice to any
BB p.ut of the work, church news will be
BB made a special feature all avseitlous
BB to the contrary notwitlistanding.
B LEADERSHIP AND BOSSISM.
BB Since the local campaign opened
BB much has been said about "bosses"
BB .and "leadeis" who they were In the
BB past, who they aie at present, who
BBj they will be in the future, and as to
BB their methods, etc. The two words
BB are used as though fiey are mere
BBj synonyms, and there arc not a few w ho
BBj intellectually have become so asphyx-
BBj i lated by the foul political ntmos-
BBJ phcre they breathe that they can't see
BBj the distinction and these misguided
BBJ individuals are not contlncd to any
BBJ..., I particular party, much as we should
BBJ like to believe otherwise. Wo are a
BBJ. 'firm believer In Republican doctrlno
BBJ-, and methods as a whole, but first of
BBJ .all we arc for the greatest clean 1-
BBJ ncss and purity In politics, and wo
BBjk feel morally certain that American
BBBh J citizens can not serve their country
BBBfr best, their party best, nor their own
BBBm-i Interests best until they can sec clear-
BBBBJl . y the very great difference that DOES
BBBBBBmto?n,fr'.w,f ''"'V ' mjmgi, .fflsafc-iuy
exist between a "leader" and a "boss"
Leadership Is one thing, and boss
Ism Is a distinct thing.
Leader is that kind of ascendancy
inherent in a man that by ordination
of nature constitutes him to be a guid
ing inspiration to men of shorter pro
vision and Inferior personality. It
Is by the administration of such lead
ers that the world has ever been able
to forge forward Into better days and
along better highways. Leadership
in such senses of the term, is a tribute
both to the man who leads and to the
man who Is led. It is the best that is
in the leader appealing to the best
that Is in the led. If you now spell
"leader" trickster and sne'll "led"
"plaything" you will have bosslsm.
A man may dignify himself by con
senting to be led, but he always stul
tltles himself by consenting to be boss
ed. A man who is letting himself be
bossed is a human ass kneeling down
to let his driver buckle the pack to
his back. Leading makes smaller men
bigger; bosslsm shrivels Into a still
dryer apology what little they already
have and don't know enough to keep.
You may apologi7o for bosslsm all you
like, and gloss it over with euphem
isms the most plausible that can be
devised, It still remains true that boss
lsm is an ugly cancer on the lody of
true Americanism, and an Intending
boss is a deep-djed traitor to all that
Is best in our history and dearest to a
heait that is genuinely American.
KNOX AND lilt TRUSTS.
In Sat u i day's K-,uo of The Journal
editor (iokIoii dellnes the Republican
proposition on the ti list question and
intimated that the appointment of a
tmst oiganier as Attorney-fJeneral
Is the st taw that bleaks the camel's
back. No one w 111 deny that Attorney
Knot has a gieat leputatlon as a cor
poration lawyer, that until his ap
pointment by President Itoosqvclt he
was frequently employed by trust
magnates and invariably won his
cases, but will The Journal Insist that
this in itself uullts him for the posi
tion he now occupies? Why would It
not the better lit him for his ',tlght
against the trusts or does Tlio Jour
nal want to spread the Idea that
Knox while occupying a Government
position is still at the beck ami call of
the enemies of the Government that
he will not do his duty as the oath he
took requires? Such would seem to
be the Implication. Now let's look at
it another way. We understand that
Gordon was a Republican until he was
emplojed to write Democratic editor
ials. Must we believe that he w 111 not
do his duty by his employers, or rather
shall we not believe that ho will put
his best efforts into the work and do
both himselfand his employers just Ice.
If Gordon was himself a good Repub
lican and studied the weak and strong
points of the party, this knowledge
within Itself ought the better tit him
for his present duties likewise with
Attorney-General Knox. If that law
yer was a trust organizer ho must
know the trusts' btrength, also Its
weaknesses, hence his lltness. Tho
trust question is manifestly one of
law, and at present not a matter of
legislation. It is equally certain that
thcro are now on tho books "anti
trust" laws, the ciTect and clllclency
of which have never been fully tested.
President Roosevelt litis given it out
that th"se lows shall be tested and
there aro few In this country who
doubt that ho means business. After
such a decision on tho President's
pait, tho one thing necessary was that
the conduct of this legal battle be I
placed In competent hands, and the
public testimony Is that no more
masterful man could have been select
ed than Knox. The President, the
representative of a majority of the
people, has seen fit to leave this law
case to a competent la'wycr, and It
would seem fit and proper that the
general public should await results
A RANK INJUSTICE.
Tho frequent appearance of large
numbers of catalogues sent out by such
firms as Walker Hros., the Uoston
Store, Z. C. M. I., and Auerback's, of
Salt Lake City, Mandcl's, The Fair,
Montgomery Ward & Co., of Chicago,
and various other of the large depart
ment stores, brings to mind the rank
Injustice too many citizens In every
town and small city in the country
continually practice upon their home
merchants and Logan Is certainly
not an exception In this respect.
Persons who receive these immense
catalogues grab them cagorly, quickly
work up their Imagination to a point
where they believe they can save an
Immense amount of money by dealing
direct with these department stores
and promptly lire oil a $7 money order
for a $15 (V) suit of clothes, $2.25 for an
$8 (V) silk skirt, and $15 for a $30 side
boardnot to mention $1.37 for a pair of
$0 (V) patent leather shoes and a $1.75
telescope thrown In. Thc goods come,
plus great freight or expense charges
arc unsatisfactory two-thirds of the
time, but because it involves consider
able trouble and a very strong effort to
get the cosh back in hand, the goods
are kept. The victim swears under
iris breath for a few days, and then
makes a fool of himself again. - Thus
the merchant at home who contri
butes to all the institutions of the
community, pays his taxes and Im
proves his property, is placed in unjust
competition and left to hustle for trade
and eke out a hard-earned existence.
Ten-to-one if the purchaser from the
city store had gone to his home mer
chant he would have found asgoqd
bargains and by bvrying of him would
have helped place the merchant In a
position to give him better bargains
in the future, besides keeping at home
the money that otherwise goes entire
ly away from a community never to
return. The home merchant, also, Is
Invariably a genial sort of fellow glad
to rectify any mistake, and to make
satisfactory any and all purchases.
That the home merchant Is a victim
of the city department stores and the
ccrdulousness of the people, does nojt
warrant the belief that theliome mer
chant himself is not responsible to a
certain extent for this state of affairs.
In fact he is responsible, and to a large
extent. If the homo merchant by,
proper and Judicious advertising kept
before the public the bargains lie has
to offer, there is just reason to believe
that buyers of foreign firms would sec
tho advantage of trading at home,
and would do so; but In this progres
sive age of hustle and advertising
schemes, people Judge, and rightly,
too, that firms who do not adveitlse
have nothing to offer, consequently
they go elsewhere.
However there Is a class of people
who seem Jo think they must go to
"the city" for anything and every
thing they warrt, on the assumption
that they can not secuie at home the
things thei desire. This Is certainly
a mistake and we believe In Justice to
home meichants it should not be
If nominated for congress, Flie
Chlef Dovlne's experience In handling
"fire-water" will make him a formid
able opponent for any Democrat that
may be brought out.
The Journal's Imagination causes It
to let out various and sundry growls
about a Republican "barrel", and a
well filled one. It does not state Just
what the b.iriel may be filled with,
but we'll wager that If it could get a
whack at the bunghole, the contents
would be a secondary consideration.
The Democratic organ of this city
pats the party all over, serves up some
tatty, Insists that the county Is safely
Democratic under normal conditions
and then sounds a war whoop that In
dicates such an abnormal condition In
tho party as to make that safe Demo
cratic majority look like a last year's
hlrd's-nest. Whoop'er upagaln boys,
it will take more than 1) columns of
Journal space to turn the tide.
Tho elfort of any newspaper to
build up a town Is practically nullified
unless it is backed up by the business
mon of tho town. A stranger turns
from the news columns of a paper to
Its advertising columns, and If ho falls
to find there tho business cards of the
merchants and business firms ho comes
to tho rightful conclusion that tho
best enterprise In the towrwls not ap
preciated and that it Is a -rood place
to steer clear of. A tow n cannot grow
with any rapidity without tho active
assistance of a good newspaper. Rusl
ness men should realize this and
remember that In lending support
to their local paper or papers they are
not only building up their own busi
ness but are helping to support that
which Is steadily working for tho
, growth of the wholo town.

Talk about harmony the Demo

able to accomplish It, but If It goes
about it as various eastern counties
are doing, by adopting both the Kan

same convention, the harmony they
are looking for will probably reach
them in the year 4,000.
