and is entitled to his own interpreta
tion. One tiling on which all arc agreed
and that Is that It is the Intent of
the law to get the best timber In the
cities to hold the offices, It theieforu
v ould not have been wise to have
said that anybody desiring to have
Ills name on the official ballot could
do so by making It known to the city
re older. Some qualifications must ho
prescilbed, and the law says that
") candidate must have his quail
flcatioiS 'certified to hy one hundred
fiood cltlens. And It appeals that
Hint is as far as the petition k us,

or tho signors, the same ono hundred
tood cltli-ens can sign tho petitions
oi nil tho candidates, and without any
violation of conscience or good faith,
go to tho polls and voto for whom
tl'ev think will make the best officials
In other words tlie petition appears
to be simply a bill, of character, and
qualifications, vouched for hy one
hundred cltlxeiis, and not u stutument
to tlie erfect that the candidate Is tho
best man for the office to which ho
asplies. This Is why a great many of
our biiHlncss men hao signed tho

candidates, ami their couise appeals

with the intent of the law If It weie
not so a good man might come along
today and ask for u signature certlf)
lug to character, qualifications, etc.,
and in case It Is given, and a better
qualified man comes along tomorrow,
this citlv.en Is (ieprhed of exercising
Ills best Judgment In tho Interests of
the city. Citizens are not suppsed to
say eaily in tint campaign who Is the
best qualified, to fill this position and
that position. A few cltteiis are not
Justified under tho law In stinting

JOHN HENRY SMITH,
In the passing of President Jqhn
Henry Smith, Utah loses one of her
best, and most universally lovtjd nntl
respected citizens. His family has
lost a noble and honored fnther, and
nil humanity has lost u true friend.
Hl was a 'noble character, and one
that has crimmnnded the applause
and admiration of his fellows' ever
since his first elevation to pilblic
life. Ho has traveled much and nevcf
once has he failed to oreate a good
Impression, and Ingratiate himself
and his people Into the heartB of
thoso with whom he mingled, nnd to
whom he has spoken. I.argu In sta
ture, and Just as large In jheart and
soul, with h cheerful, sunny counten
ance, and possessing a natural elo
quence, he mingled In the highest so
ciety of the nation, nnd was looked up
on as a leader among men.
At the time of his elevation to the
"'Irst Presidency of the Church,
among other things, this paper said
of him! "Ho Is undoubtedly the
btoadest-mlnded man In high official
life today In the chiuch, made so be
cause of his contact with men or
standing In nearly every, state In the
union. Kioin the Oolden date to
Sandy Hook he Is known as the Mor
niou apostle with broad, generous,
tolerant Ideas. He has represented
Utah on many Important occasions
In other states, and alwuys com
mands the lespect and admiration of
his associates. He has done the lion's
share In doing honor, and reflecting
ci edit upon Utah, nnd Is n churchman
and citlen of which nil should be
We are glad to hae so written
about President John Henry Smith
while he lived and worked for hit
church and his state, and wo, now
Join with the biggest dally paper, in
the state and endorse tho following
"Kqnlpped by nature and training
to be in the front rank of his fellows.
Ii respective of the station of. life to
which he might have been called, he
took high place In activities every
where despite tho prejudice against'
I'tah and Its people which obtained
for Mi many years. Master minds
saw in him the twin of their own
dauntless spirit and ambition for the
common weal; they accepted him
without demur in that hiotherhood of
energy 'and capability which knows
neither ciced nor polities, and Is Im
patient of metes and bounds. By his
life and works he was a livingargu
ment for the religion In whlcrnne be-'
lleved'and for 'the extension o'fAwhich
r " ft
he labored unceasingly. Those" who
saw no' good In Its teachings perforce
admitted that in this man the flam
ing spark of Christian manhood must
and would grow on unquenched.
Full of yeara and honors, respected
by all, hated by none, loved hy those
who'came Into Intimate personal con
turtt with his gieat nnd kindly na
tine, the cuitaln of life has niiig
down and .lolin Henry Smith has
passed Into tho great beyond in full
haimony with the poetic itdjuriitlon
of William Cullen llryant. that mas
ter or Kngllsh diction, who wrote:
Sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy
Like one that wraps the drapery of

The statu of Utah has lost a cap
able and earnest friend, the people
wise counselor, and tho Republican
paity a loyal follower. When tho his

luminated, will be found the life and
works of John Henry Smith.
GET INTO LINE.
Republicans should lose no time
to get Into line and march up good

It Is tho best tioket in the field there
is no question about that. All tho
men nro thoroughly capable, have
the time to deVote to the 'ork, mid
wll take pride In doing the Avork In
tho Interests of the people. The Dem
ocratic party Is bun and you may
depend upon It that by tile time tho
pilmarles roll around they will be
lined up ns Uttwllg as possible for
their ticket. All Ihdlcrttlons that h
following of the emocratlc party will
support the citizens movement will
gradually fado wy nnd the Ueitib
crnts will support their own. The cit
izen's following, If It has any, will
dome from the Ileptlbllcau party, and
It Is tho Democratic hope that tho
Hepublicuns will bo so-' split that they
will win tho victory. 'Republicans
should guard against this art they by

Already Democrats who have been
hitherto supporters of tho citizens'
movement are crying out that, the

and ns days roll by they nro gradu
ally deciding that the big flglit will
bo between tho Democratic nnd Re
publican parties. As ono Democrat
declined "that the citizens' ticket is
a Republican mongrel Is evidenced
from the fact that both tho candi
dates for mayor and long term com
missioner have been candidates for
office at Republican conventions for n
number of years past. They ale not

Republicans then should he up and

working now for the ticket that will
be In the fight against the, common
enemy on election day. Theie Is no
good reason why any Republican
should vote nnythlng but the Republt
barftlcket. The Republican party did
not put a ticket In the field until af
ter tho Commercial Club turned the
matter down; until after the Demo
cratic party had named a 'ticket, and
until after a few citizens got together
mid named a ticket. Why them should
not the great party of the city name
a ticket? It did so, and Its candidates
are tho peers of nil that will appear
on the ballot. Why then should any
"Republican vote any othof ticket?
Theie Is absolutely no good reason
for doing so. Oct into line then fcr
