I f !"L UTAH'S NEXT GOVERNOR
I t 'T'HE "Piutc News" of Mayv?,c thinks that
I ; . ' X "Tlic people of Utah arc going to be interested
I ' in a man for governor who is broad and con-
structivc enough to appreciate the value of this great
f southern empire, both in its economic and trade as
pects to the northern cities, and as a scenic wonder
for the tourists of the world to visit."
The man who comes up to these specifications of
the "News" need not necessarily be a resident of
Southern Utah and will not be an enemy of Northern
Hj.i Utah. He will be merely a man of vision broad
" enough to see the vast resources of this end of the
' state and big enough to wish to make them available
H to the markets of the world. He will be a state build
Hff cr, for merely the foundation has been laid of Utah,
Bf the mighty inland state-to-be.. . He will be a road
Hi builder, because roads arc the? prerequisite to the dc
B vclopmcnt of Utah as it is to be.
Br It is perhaps not up to us to select the man for
B the important office of governor, and it may be con-
Br sidered presumptuous for us to propose a name bc-
H fore the meeting and action of the conventions. But
B if the mantle should fall on Mr. George T. Odell, we
Bjl feel that the whole state would be represented and
H I have a friend in court willing to do everything in his
B ( power for the development of their empire, 'and that
l no one section of the state would engross all his time
Bf and attention.
Bf The people of Southern Utah generally appear
. to be favorable to the candidacy of Mr. Odell.
K THE FEDERATION OF CLUBS.
THE organization of the new federation of com-
mercial clubs of this section, which was perfect
Hi ed in Cedar City last week is the first step any
v of the outside counties of the state have taken to
H; ward placing themselves on an equal footing with
H their metropolitan neighbors. To appreciate this,
H, imagine the business men of Salt Lake City members
Hj of twenty little commercial clubs instead of bclong
H! to the great Salt Like Commercial Club.
m As soon as the road is completed connecting Zion
H Park with the Grand Canvon the ten counties of Juab,
H! Millard, Beaver, Iron, Washington, Sanpete, Sevier,
H Piute, Garfield and Kane will have a common interest
Bp in advertising the scenic loop beginning with Fish
H Lake and including Brvce's Canyon, the Grand Can
Hp yon, Zion Canyon and Cedar Breaks, including Navajo
M Lake and the Mammoth.
m This common cause should unite all the com-
B mercial rlubr on this road. The present consolidation
H is the forerunner of this greater club to be. This
j coming bigger commercial body, covering the ten
M counties named, would represent an area greater than j
H! the state of Maine, and richer in scenic attractions
Hnv than any o-her like area in the nation. Until thio
H body is oriyini7ed, this scenic empiu: cannot have ad-
Hf equate advertisement nor efficient deelopment of its
K wonderful natural resources.
K Of these we may mention the alunite of Marys-1
HE vale, already bringing wealth into the state; the coal
H and iron of Iron county, and the vast timber rcsouic-
Hi es of the Kaibab forest, to be reached only through
Bf these counties. These are only four of many poten-
j tial sources of wealth that could be mentioned, any
B one of which would justify the organization of a
H commercial club of the ten counties to promote its
VTTHEN gloom comes and croaks of the doom
1 W anc disaster which threatens us all and points
m!f a skinny finger at the lowering financial and
B political clouds now darkening the sky, and the dev-
Hh ils of extravagance, immodesty, licentiousness and
K greed mock our sober thoughts with their infernal
f glee, and we see ahead of us the imminent inglorious
md1 ending of a profligate civilization, we have only to
HL read over the latest list of announcements of modest
B but aspiring candidates and we are comforted.
B With all this, array of sterling worth lined up
Hp ready to take over the administration of our affairs,
HB we are safe. What matter if we are on the rocks when
BV Qh" these good men and true are at hand? Let us
H humbly thank our Creator for those unquenchable,
H uncountable optimists, our candidates.
THE PRICE OF SUGAR. !
TERHAPS it may interest the average sugar con-
f sumer who doesn't own a beet field to know that
while he was paying thirty cents a pound for
sugar that cost around nine cents to produce, the peo-
jple of Colorado were paying fifteen cents a pound for
sugar. This ought to dispose of the argument of
Utah's indicted sugar lords that U was not practicable
to try to maintain a reasonable price in Utah for sugar
because private profiteers would clean out the local
markets and ship to outside points. The Colorado
sugar factories kept the price at fifteen cents and tied
up the retailers in such a way that what sugar was
shipped out went in suitcases and in other driblets
that did not affect the general volume of sales to any
extent. What the sugar magnates of Utah said could
not be done, the Colorado people did without any
trouble. The question rises, arc the Colorado sugar
1 men more honest than their Utah brethren, or arc
they simply better business men?
HOW MANY TOURISTS?
PEOPLE of Cedar seeing the continuous stream of
tourists passing through the city all day, and
noting the license plates from faraway states,
often wonder just how many tourists are going thru
the county. We can count the cars that come to the
camp grounds for the night and the people who stay
at the hotel if we would, but at present there is no
cheap and easy way to tally the cars that pass through
without making a stop. The establishment of an in
formation bureau for travelers would help us to find
this out. AH travelers who called at the bureau could
be persuaded to register, and very few would pass
a bureau without calling.
HONOR THE DEAD.
THIS appeal for the respect due from the living
to the dead will doubtless receive prompt re
sponse from a majority of those to whom it is
written. What is asked is so easy that there would
be no excuse for neglecting the call.
That Bolshevik of plants, the Russian thistle, has
taken possession of the Cedar City cemetery. Each
monument is surrounded, each lot is occupied and
each path is overrun. The dead are helpless against
this foe. The caretaker is cleaning out the streets of
the cemetery and some private lots have been clean
ed in response to last week's call from the city
council for a cleanup. But there are still many lots
advertising to the world the fact that there lie father,
mothers, sons, daughters, brothers or sisters, as the
case might be, now seemingly forgotten by all those
who once held them dear.
Outside of these weeds, the cemetery makes a
very creditable showing for the city. Shade trees
and grass and flowers are helping to make a very de
sirable spot of it. It is to be hoped that there will be
no delay in getting rid of the weeds before they seed
the ground for next year. If you, Mr. Lot-Owner,
could be persuaded to look into the lots once, there
would be no question as to your next move The
hoc and the garden rake would be drafted in a hurry
and would be worked with a will.
IMAGINARY KICKS. -
IT is easy to imagine we have a kick coming as is
proved by the interesting experience of a soda
. fountain proprietor not so far from here. He
claims that when he set out a new brand of near beer
for a friend to sample he noticed that the label had
washed off in icing the beer. So he gave his friend'
the wink and asked him how he liked it. That wink
did the work. The friend's imagination immediately
whispered "real beer." The good word spread, of
course, and all day long the fountain was crowded
with men and boys thirsty for the labelless bottles of
near beer. The proprietor had to send out a hurry
call for a force of helpers to wash labels off the bot
tles. He said not a word; just washed off labels and
let the crowd fool themselves. While the little secret
lasted everybody was happy. Some of the younger
members of the bunch even imagined themselves feel
ing a little dizzy. The kick did not develop until the
next day when they all found they had no kick com
ing. Simply shows how easy it is for us to kid our
MATHONIHAH THOMAS. Federal Prohibition
officer for Utah recently made a superficial
visit over the state and went back to Salt Lake
iCity perfectly satisfied with its dryness. And yet the
manufacture and sale of extracts is a thriving indus
' try in the state. If a citizen contracts a sore thumb
and goes to the druggist alter a little lysol to disintect
I the sore, he must sign a poison register. But if thej
thirsty decide on a holiday with jag trimmings they!
can go out and buy all the extracts they want and
nothing to sign and no questions asked. If a consci
entious grocer refuses to sell more than one bottle of
the extract, they can go from grocer to grocer until
their cash is exhausted. Why not have an extract i
register, and let the buyer sign for his booze? Then
check up on the grocer's purchases of extracts. It
would work as well as the poison register does, and,
as well as the sugar list worked during the war. Then
JMr. Thomas would have some figures on which to,
base a report on the wetness or aridity of the state. '
The dry law has brought about a vast improvement I
throughout the state, but while the present activity
in the sale and drinking of extracts continues, it can-'
not be said to have solved the booze pioblcm. Both
federal and state law give the authorities full power
1 to suppress absolutely all manufacture and sale of
I any preparation that is being used for beverage pur
poses. That this includes extracts is self-evident.
j Jhis power to suppress implies the power to regulate1
manufacture and sale to prevent their use as bcver-i
ages. Somebody to whom they will listen ought to
put this proposition up to Mr. Thomas and to Attor
ney General Shields. ,

an auto tour of the southern counties

visitors also are advocating a confer

before the State convention for the
purpose of reaching some kind of a
