H The Other Side of the Question.
H There are not a few individuals and a great
m many newspapers, some of national influence, that
m are demanding the government of the United
H States to interfere in the Mexican controversy, and
H condemn President Taft for not taking some ac-
H tion looking o an invasion of that country by the
fl military of this country.
fl The reasons advanced are that the lives of
H Americans are being endangered and their pro-
H perty destroyed. Regardless of the clamor, the
H president and his cabinet steadfastly refuse to be
H alarmed or to act hastily. And there is no-doubt
H but that the officials at Washington are doing the
H only right and proper thing for this country to do
M unless conditions assume a more serious aspect
H than anything that has developed tip to this time
H keep out of the fracas.
H The fact is quite clear that one country has
H no right to interfere with the affairs of another
H country simply because a few of its citizens and
H their property therein are in danger as the result
H of an organized warfare. When a subject of one
H country leaves it and goes to another and takes up
H his residence there and acquires property interests
H there, he does so solely because he thinks he is
M bettering. his condition, else he wouldn't leave his
M own country. In effect, he says that he no longer
H feels that his own country is the right place for
M him; that another offers him better opportunities
Hv is more to his liking. He' leaves his own home-
H land to develop and build up another. And when
H he takes up his new residence he believes its laws
H its form of government, the liberties or the licen-
H ces he enjoys are more staisfying to him and he
H adopts them by implication at least as being bet-,
" te'suitGd tois'jyray oflopking-at tjhings. ,y -
H This being true why then should .the country
H he has left be required to endanger the lives of
H its loyal manhood, the accumulations of its .loyal
H citizenship simply because such an one has 'later
H discovered ..that something is not to his liking in
H the land of his adoption. The property he has
H there was accumulated thereit is a part of the
H mass of -wealth of the country in which he is resid-
H ing. Not being subject to the control of or hav-
H ing been furnished by the country of his nativity,
H what right has such country to interfere? None
H unless it be the right of might. No justification
H can be be found for such interference.
H Were the individual merely a guest of that
H country visiting for a brief time with no intention
H to reside or remain permanently for any consider-
H able time the matter would appear in an alto-
B gether different aspect. A guest is entitled to the
H highest consideration and care by his host and a
H citizen of one country traveling or visiting in
H ' another should be safely protected from .violence
H oi any kind and unless so protected the country
H of; which he is a subject is wholly justified in
H taking such. measures as will .insure such pro-
H hi But such can not be true of the person who
H cares not a "tinkers darn" for his "own" country
H unless he be in serious trouble or danger.
I The State is faking Notice.
That Cedar City is coming into its own is
H evidenced by the newspaper comment she is re
H ceiving through the press of the state, especially
through the southern portion.
H The following editorial comment from the
H Beaver Press is indicative of the fact that Mil-
Hj ford has at last realized, that the county to the
H south is forging ahead at a pace that is soon to
H place it at the front among the counties of the
H '. ' It is well for the people of Milford 'to
f H-? realize that while Milford itself is a pretty
H '' "good town there are other good towns in
H ' , Southern Utah. It is especially mete for
H us to occasionally turn our attention to
H ' these other towns because of the fact that
" Milford is the hub of the Universe in

advancing rapidly many nw buildings

plumber down there, H. E. Peterson by

putting in bath tubs and eyiVy other kind
of modern plumbing at a r&ti that is keep
ing him busy all the time. I This is not
only a good thing for him-bufc It also indi
cates that the town appreciates modern
improvements. Cedar City has a fine
. electric light plant and, a 'fine water sys
tem. Many new buildings iave been put
up during the last year anch many more
arc in contemplation, including several
very fine business blocks.
"In Parowan a municipal water sys
tem is being put in, work being however,
temporarily halted on accouiit of freezing
weather. However, every tljjhg is being
pushed ahead as fast as possible ?nd the
people of the town are looking forward to
this improvement in the very) hear future.

"Conditions around Lund indicate
that that country is beirig Settled very
rapidly. A great deal of land has been
taken up and a great many people have
actually moved in and a regular influx is
expected this spring; Many of the farm
ers are already located and the hum of
industry can be heard all over the valley.
Milford is the nearest supply point and
should give this territory sufRcient atten
tion to get its attention in every line. It
will do all of us good if we lift our eyes
and look around this part of the state.

A Rotton Condition, It Hust Be.
With the exposure of the over-jssue of county
warrants in excess of $50,000,, a,nd a bitter and
unrelenting attack on the high-lianded methods
of the "Bull Moose" commissioners of the county,
the disregard of the opinion's of the county at
torney and the hiring of a special lawyer, followed
by the resignation of the county clerk and the
county treasurer, the refusal of certain men to
accept appointment to fill the vacancies, involving
of the mayor of Price in te fight, his attempt to
horse-whip the editOT-yfe UtMMnd tlrt.f ear
ful scoring to which he is beinjr snblected by the
paper, there is certainly a rotton condition exist
ing in Carbon county and a general house-cleaning
by a grand jury should .follow,., if we.are.tp believe
the extensive articles now appearing in the East
ern Utah Advocate of Price. j
And that such a condition is in a large meas
ure true is not to be disputed, for no paper would
dare make the charges that the Advocate makes
unless they were, about ninety-eight per c,ent true.
But it is nothing less than we have expected to
hear, for Price. and Carbon county have been
going at a pace that means disaster if not halted.
With almost as many saloons as all other lipes oi
business together, gambling running wide open,
prostitutes enough to cast a stigma on ;a city of
thrice the population of Price, prize fights as a
regular form of amusement, what more is to be
expected. Can anything else be expected when
the officials of a city and a county are consorting
.and hobnobbing with such an element? , It is as
natural as that water should become discolored
with the addition ored ink. But if tjie Advocate'
keeps up its present. line of attack, jthere, wll. b0
some seurryingjto.the. taJl,tjmbor down in that secT
tion of the country before the thing is over.

Old age as it comes in the or- jt
;derly process of nature is a M
' beautiful and majestic thing. It i
i stands for experience, know
ledge, wisdom, counsel. That is
old age as it should be, but old
age as.it often means poor di
gestion, torpid bowels, a slug
gish liver and a general feeling
of ill health, despondency and
rnisery. This in almost every ;
instance is wholly unnecessary.
One of Camberlain's tablets
taken immediately after supper
will improve the digestion, tone
up tho liver and regulate the
bowels. That feeling of des
pondency will give way to cne
(f hope and good cheer. For
