1 JUST A TIMELY HINT,
1. This Is election day, and that day upon which
the voters of tho entire United States will regis-
H tcr their cholco for the men who are to guide tho
H courso of tho great ship of Jtr.te for tho next four
H years. Every man and woman who has In his or,
H her keeping tho mighty Instrument of the ballot
H Is suro to sense tho Importance ot the step which
H they aro about to tnKo and out of that appreciation
B of responsibility will comb tho expression of tho
H best Judgment of which each one Is capable.
H Thero Is a dangor looming largo upon tho ho-
H rlzon, however, and It is namely, that many voters
H throughout the country are likely to allow tholr
H franchise to go by default. It Is not the result of
H , the active voto upon election day that counts for
H so much sometimes as tho positive deleterious ef-
H I " feet of tho negative vote. In other words there
H Is danger of too many voters remaining away
H from the polls altogether.
H The present campaign has been In many re-
1 . spects the most spectacular In the history of the
Hm country. It has been marked by the very keen-
jg est personal animosities In some circles notwlth-
HK standing tho character of tho three chief candl-
H dates for Chief Magistrate of the land are each
V and all of them abovo reproach. Hut blinded by
Bv tho smoke of battle, and giving too much credence
H" to all the gruesome stories that como to them many
1 voters particularly women are expressing their
1 determination of remaining away from tho polls al-
H Now on tho laco of It, such an act of utter in-
H difference to tho welfare of the nation Is wrong.
H It Is wrong morally, because that tho oath of clt-
H Izenshli) obligates the Individual to express
H THUOUOH THE 11ALLOT their preferences for the
H men and policies of government, It Is wrong Intel-
H lectually because the glory of the American peo-
H plo Is their ability to 'devise tho policies which
H shall govern them, and It Is wrong fundamentally.
H , No man or woman worthy of the elective fran-
H chlso should bo so utterly Indifferent to the wol
Hy . fare ot tho nation as to refuse to tako their in
(1 dividual active part in proclaiming for the policies
H ' which shall best advance, tho nation. Tho man or
Hl woman who refuses to cast his or her vote think-
B lng thereby to shift tho responsibility for the out-
B-' come on to tho shoulders of tlioso who have gone
H forth manfully to battle for the right as they under-
M 3tand It, is a coward to themselves and to their
H Do not fail to vote. Tho right is yours and
H , ' It Is a sovereign one. It has been secured to
H , V-'ou through tho best blood ot the centuries and to
H .kiit that you utlllzo it intelligently Just that
B - far will you assist In advancing tho interests of
Hj humanity; in general. Voto for the men of your
H cholco and then whatever the outcome, you can re-
H turn to your homo feeling thrit you have done your
Hf duty us a nulgnbor and a citizen.
Hl ' n Just 0110 more suggestion, tho United States
Hi undor the men who havo been in chargo of its
H governmental functions during tho past four years
has gonu forward by leaps and bounds. Do not
H. be mislead by tho disgruntled politicians and
H trenzlcdly ambitious otllco seekers, who seize hold
H of any opportunity to foist themselves upon tho
h honesty and fair dealing, peace, und not Yar; If
H honesty und fair dealing, peace, and not war? If

H of tho sovereign states of tho Union, exercise your
H right as a citizen, rlso up in your power as a cit-
lien and by your voto cast for the men whom you
H havo now tried and proved in olllco administer tho
H rebuko to the malcontents which their utter disre-
H gard for all precedent has merited.

M ENGLAND HOPES FOR AMERICAN
' FREE TRADE.
t; It Is not surprising that British consular rep-
H resentatlvcs in tho United States, and even the
H Uritlsh ambassador himself, should be pleased at
H the threat that this country is to abandon tho pro
H4 ' tectlvo tariff principle and that this, tho best mar
Hl I ket fn tho world, Is to be thrown open to the man
HJ , ufacturors ot all nations. James Uryce, tho Urit
n I Ish ambassador to tho United States, betrayed that
B 1 hope In a recent Bpeeoh in Melbourno In which he
H I ' 1 Is quoted as follows by tho London Times:
H I Mr. nryce said that Americu was increasing
H ' I her manufacturers, but har city population was
MR also increasing so fast that her whole product
H would soon bo requlrea for homo consumption,
K and sbo would cease, to bo an exporting nation.
V 1 He said that iv portion of tho American trade will
B ' fall to Australia especially so slnco there ox-
H Ists at this time a greater prospect than ever
9 before of substantial reductions In thp American
4 One can tnoroyghly understand that Australia
and other foreign lands which produce so much
HI, A Ao cheaply would welcomo tho opportunity to on-
I y tcr ho American 'market J reo. of Imposts and rom-
I peto with iciiitk'Krwnlrcuanufafturod and
H 1 ',, handled by high priced American labor. That Aus-
-"-- -...-,. "f
tralla will have this opportunity In thq eyent of j
tho election of Profossor Wilson as President there '
can bo no question slnqo porsona'.ly, ,he Is commit- .!
ted to n tariff for revenue only policy, and tho j
platform upon which ho stands is bitter In Its de- :
nunclatlon of tho Amq-Ican principle of projection. ,
. This prospect rather lexers William Randolph
Hearst, one of tho bell wethers of Democracy and
one of the most conspicuous 'figures at 'the Balti
more convention. His eaitorfal dlscusslqivln the
New York American oftno tariff plank In ,th Dem
ocratic national platform may be illuminating: .-,
Mr. Bryan's freo trade plank declares Ujat
protection does not tend to Increase Hhe ag"ds
of American workmen, but that those wagcs'htjo
determined by tho competitlvo system. 1t, howi
ever, a protective tariff, properly levied, tendsto
develop now Industries and In that way-to give
employment to a greater numbelr of men, It Is
Imposslblo -to maintain that a protective tariff
does not lncreaso the demand for labor and so
tend to raise wages. '
As that Is good Republican doctrines-, wo may
safely tako Mr. Hearst's view of it, although one
may wonder at the versatility of a politician who
can argue for jrrotectlon and still support a tariff
reformer of the professor's well known proclivit
ies. Herald Republican.
SENATOR SMOOT'S ESTIMATE
OF WILSON, ',
"Is he fitted for tho position of President? Has
ho had tho experience that will Justify you In vot
ing for him as President? Let's see. What busi
ness has ho followed? What has been his pro
fession In life or during his life? One' thing, and
one only, and that Is a school teacher. A splen
did man for president of the university, educat'e'd
for that particular calling, but I want to say to
you that ho Is an impracticable man.
Why, no ddubt, many of you know Dr. Carl.G.
JIaeser. Ho was a splendid man, on educated man
no better teacher ever entered Utah than he; and
would you for a minute, think of placing him to
manago a business? Why he knew no more about
It than a baby, and I say to you that Governor
Wilson knows no more about governing a great In
stitution, outsldo of an educational institution, than
millions ot other American citizens.
"Why he novef thought of being President of
tho United States, never dreamed of It, and let
mo tell you why, It wasn't but a few years ago,
that ho retired from Princeton, and what did he
do? Mado application to Andrew Carnegie for a
pension for life, and on what ground? Because he
was a retired professor, an aged school teacher,
and that was why he hought that he was entitled
to a pension from Andrew Carnegie. Why that
wasn't but Just a few years ago, and now a great
party has asked tho American people to take and
put him In ns President of tho United States, Why
what lb tho difference between a pension. fpr life,
or going to the workhouse only la degree, nothing
more. s .
Democratic campaign expenses at present aro
far in excess of Republican expenditures. Don't
It beat all how theso purity fellows fall from grace
when tho searchlight Is turned on?
Did you read that statement of affairs at tho
U. of U. in the Sunday dallies? It was certainly
Interesting and a forecast of what is to come. If
you did not read It by all means do so, and while
reading It Just think seriously and drop In a word
hero and thero between tho lines. After doing' so
wo think you wl'l decide that It Is best to vote
the state and county Republican ticket.
In speaking of progress would you want 'the
country to progress more than It has? Progress
does not mean destruction. Progress means con
servative advancement, gradually and safely, so
that tho country will bo all that the world thinks
it to be, nnd that Is, tho greatest and best gov
ernment undor God's skies. That Is tho Republican
Idea of progress. It Is what tho Republican party
has made of tho United States. Is It nor worthy
of a vote 'of approval?
Nearly every trust In tho country has Its homo
In tho state of Now Jersoy, where tho Democratic
candidate for president Is governor, when ho works
at It, but so far wo havo not heard that ono of
them over recolved a lady llko slap on tho wrist
for existing, much less that ono has been destroyed
as the candldato tells us ought to bo done with
them. They do love their trusts nnd "skeeters"
in Jersoy. " ,

For County Attorney A. E. Bowen, Leon Foil
neBbeck and John A. Sneddon, which? Well which
ono would you engage to do your own business? Is
not tho public business your business? Tho an
swer Is evident. .

Tho Deseret Nows thinks amendment number
four on the official ballot relating to stato 'funds
should bo passed, nnd all the others killed, pending
tho calling of a constitutional convention to over
haul the constitution. It 1b not a bad Idea.

In 1009 when laboring men wore not buying
histories, Woodrow Wilson wrote they wer unprofit
able servants; In 1912 when ho needs tholr votes
in his buslnoss, they are tho salt of the earth, Won
der why the change? ,
Judging from the amounts of money Roosevelt
received to conduct his campaign for tho presidency
it took an awful amount to make "the voice of the
people" heard, ,
With President Taft elected for another four
years, next year's prosperity will bo bigger and
better still. . v

If the people look to their own
Interests they will voto this down.
On the samo amendment tho Des
eret News writes editorially as fol
lows: The News is publishing the opin
ions of prominent business men on
tho proposed constitutional
amendments, and we recommend
theBo utterances tc the careful con
sideration -of the voters. We hope
they will prove helpful to those
who want to form an opinion of
their own and voto Intelligently.
We call special attention to tho
comments of Mr. William W. Riter
on the proposed amendment of sec
tion 3, article 13. If this amend
ment is passed property will
be assessed at what Is called Its
"actual money value." Mr. Rltcr
states why ho believes this amend
ment should not be passed, and we
believe most taxpayers, when they
understand the meaning of that In
nocent looking proposition will
agree with him.
To assess property at Its "actual
money vnluo" Is not possible be
cause that value is fluctuating and
depends largely on the skill ot the
real estate agent who Bells It, or
on a number of circumstances. An
agent might chance to And ,a cus
tomer willing to pay J10.000 for a
pleco of property. That Is then Its
money value to tho owner. But
the buyer may have to sell It
shortly after he bought it. and he
may not be able to get more than
$7,600 for the samo property. That
Is Its money vnlue to him. "Actu
' al money value" Is a relative term
that has absolutely no fixed mean
ing. A boom Is started. Property
rises. Tho boom bursts. What was
the money valuo today Is not tho
same value next week. How can a
fair assessment bo made on such
How it works In practice has
been shown. The story is told of
a town where tho assessment Is
made on "actual money vnlue." An
assessor without experience and
with Httlo common sense proceeded
to put his price on real estnto with
the solo view of making himself
solid with tho administration. Tho
result was that a Httlo store was
assessed for abovo tho actual cost
of it twelvo years ago, without tho
slightest reduction for deterioration

prominent street, another round tho
corner on a less prominent street.
Both may bo worln exactly tho
same to tho owners, and yet one
would have a higher assessment
than iha other becauso of the loca
tion. And why should nn assess
ors opinion as to actual money val

This amendment is ono that
should certainly bo voted down.
Wo hope the voters will study It
closely. The promise is, wo bcllevo
that the rato will bo loweredbut
