W WHAT'S THE MATTER, UNCLE? !
FROM Park City, a "wild and wooley" mining j
camp in the north, to Piochc, another mining
H 1 camp to our southwest, come bitter complaints
of the lack of enforcement of the prohibition laws.
Is These are not the lamentations of hysterical women
or fanatical churchmen in pastorial communities, but
arc the expressions of the public press in towns which
have been accustomed to a saloon environment, so
' that we take it there is a general protest on the part
i of the people against the looseness that is shown m
H '" the enforcement of the liquor laws.
l The manufacture or sale of beverages containing
Hi more than one-half of one per cent alcohol, is a pen
Ib itentiary offense against the Federal government, and
l the question naturally arises, "What's the matter with
Uncle Samuel?" Has he lost his pep, or has the ad
H ministration of the affairs of government and the en
H forcement of the laws fell into the Jiands of rogues
He who protect the lawbreakers, or incompetents who
HI care onlv to draw their pay? Surely a few moon-
H shiners cannot get out and defy the minions of the
HL. jaw at this day and age of our boasted civilization;
H i and yet the protests of the law-abiding citizens seem
Hr as vet to 8 unanswered, or unsatisfied.
Hi' If anyone supposed that(thc placing of a prohib-
H ition law on even the Federal statutes, was going to
Hi, cure the whole liquor trouble, they were due to a
H; sad awakening; for it must be remembered that
Hf crime, and particularly those forms of it which prey
Hft upon the weaknesses of the race, is hard to down, and
HI it is only by persistent and untiring efforts that it can
H( be kept from spreading, or can eventually be cor-
H It is, therefore, up to the people to make them-
H selves heard, and prove that public sentiment is suf-
H ficiently strong on the side of law and order to com-
H j pel action. Unless we intend to maintain a firm at-
H titude in this matter, it would have been better to
Jf have retained the licensed saloon.
m At least one gang of moonshiners has been oper-
H ating for months practically unpiolested near the bor-
H der Tine of Utah and Nevada a most surprising and
M unbelievable condition. We are not so much sur-
H prised at the failure of local officials to enforce the
H laws strictly, but when it comes to the manufacture
H I of whiskey on a wholesale scale, it is a matter which
1 1 calls for the appearance pf Uncle Sam on the scene ;
Hi and his silence and absence is beyond our compre-
v IN LINCOLN'S DAY
B - By F. P. Gallagher
ONCE more Premier Lloyd George utters a plain
tive appeal for American help to save Europe
M from itself.
B "May I be permitted to say that this torn and
B bleeding earth is calling today fctf the help of the
H America of Abraham Lincoln's day."
M America will fulfill every obligation it owes blced-
H ing and blood-guilty Europe, but it will not sacrifice
sH -1rrinclependence to join an alliance of war. It will
H help as best it may to preserve the free nations es-'
M tablished by the treaty of Versailles, but it will not'
H permit a supreme council of nations to use American.
H money, ships and men to maintain a policy of im-
B pcrial plunder. It will, first of all, preserve American
H institutions for its own security and as an example
M tp the world. It will help the world by remaining
H free. It will help the world by refusing to surrender
H its sovereignty. And if Abraham Lincoln were with
H us that is the counsel he would give.
H f It was the mission of Abraham Lincoln to save the
H Union of States. He became the leader of that party
H which stood for the indestruclable soverignty of the
H United States. After four years of war, when the
HI , South bravely assumed that it was unbeaten, the en-
H ', voys of the Confederacy held conference with Lincoln
H and urged him to sign a treaty which would allow the
H ' seceding states to go in peace. Though the skies were
H still lurid with war, though the future held no cer-
H, tainty of triumph, he refused to abandon that prin-
Hj . ciple to which his whole life had been dedicated
H' ,vV the preservation of the Union.
H' In our day another president, master of phrases
and juggler of sentimentalities, continues to mumble!
about maintaining the honor of the United States, i
although the treaty he would sign would surrender (
1 American sovereignty to a foreign power. Abraham
Lincoln struggled to end slavery, but if this president
of our day coulcj have his way America would be in
a league formed to hold subject peoples in perpetual,
I thralldom by military might. j
( When Lloyd George appeals to the America of
j Lincoln's day he docs not know whereof he speaks.
j It was Lincoln's day that ended human slavery on j
'this continent and gave to all the world a lesson iti
(will forget only in its hours of darkest counsel. The'
statue of Lincoln in London might As- well be veiled
if the leaders of British opinion continue to appeal to '
his memory to uphold imperialism and plunder. And
in our own land wc should be ashamed to look upon
that noble creation of St. Gaudcns by which he has
preserved to us the soul of Lincoln, if wc plan to give
away any part of that sovereignty and independence
which Lincoln sacrificed his life to preserve.
WHO MAY DRIVE CARS
THE large number of cars and motor vehicles
owned and operated in Cedar City, which num
ber is ever increasing, demands the more rigid
enforcement of the traffic laws already on our statute
books and the enactment of requisite and necessary
traffic ordinances by the City Council, regulating the
parking of cars, conduct in traffic, etc. This, we arc
informed, will receive attention by the .Council in the
very near future.
In the mean time, our attention has been called
to a provision of tho.statc lav, prescribing who may
and who may not drive or operate motor vehicles,
which reads as follows:
Sec. 13. No person shall operate a motor
vehicle or motorcycle upon any public street or
highway, whether as owner or operator of such
vehicle, if. under sixteen years of age or while
under the influence of intoxicating liquor and no
person shall take, use or operate any motor ve
hicle or motorcycle upon the public streets and
highways without the permission of the owner
thereof. (C. 80, 1915.)
Last week a .boy under the lagal age obtained a
jitney from a relative and took a number of his little
j friends out for a ride, with the result that the car was
, capsized and one of the little girls had her arm
Of course, accidents sometimes happen with fully
matured chauffeurs, and it is sometimes the case that
quite young lads are really more expert in the handl
ing of cars than their worthy sires, youth responding
better to the acquisition of "new tricks." but still
the law was deemed a proper one by our legislators,
else it would not have been enacted, and it should be
respected and enforced.
HERE are the salient points in Senator Harding's
speech of acceptance of the nomination fqr,
I president of the United States, tendered him
by the Republican party:
"I pledge fidelity to our country and to God, and
accept the nomination of the Republican party for
the presidency of the United States." .
"The human element comes first, and I want the
employers in industry to understand tiie aspirations,
the convictions, the yearnings of millions of American
"The Constitution contemplates no class and rec
ognizes no group. It broadly includes all the people,
with specific recognition for none."
"We approve collecting bargaining."
"Gross expansion of currency and credits has de
preciated the dollar. We will attempt intelligent and
courageous deflation." j
"When competition natural, fair compelling'
competition is suppressed, whether by law, compact
or conspiracy, we halt the march of progress, silence
the voice of aspiration and paralyze the will for
"I promise you formal and effective peace so
quickly as a Republican Congress can pass its decla-i
ration for a Republican executive to sign."
"I can hear the call of conscience an insistent
voice, for largely reduced armaments throughout the
"Our vision includes more than a chief executive.
i We believe in a cabinet of highest capacity, equal to
the responsibilities which our system contemplates,
in whose councils the vice-president, second official
of the Republic, shall be asked to participate."
i THE RAINBOW CHASERS.
WHEN an occasional citizen pulls up and moves '
to another section, it is usually because for
personal reasons he thinks himself better ad
apted to the new surroundings. Many men benefit
by the change that finds them in surroundings better
fitted to their peculiarities.
But when a general exodus lakes place to a new
j region, the reason can usually be traced to a strong
advertising campaign in behalf of the new place.
Take it from me, the ad. writer that can make Ar
jcadia, Fertility Flats or New Eldorado read like the
I earthly paradise you have always been seeking, could
make the Cedar Valley appear to you as the most de
sirable bit of heaven ever pictured to man. Hun
dreds of families better their condition by moving.
Other thousands are out what little they had gather
ed together before the move, and are finding harder
j scratching than they had dreamed of at home.
! James Lewis, a pioneer of Southern Utah who
made the last move many years ago, said impressively
i to a dissatisfied brother settler in the early days :
"Brother Smith," he said, "let me tell you this: go
where you will, you'll have ALL YOU CAN BEAR."
