U. S. SENATOR BARTCH.
It gives tho Truth great pleasure to
announce to its readers that the Hon.
Geo. W. Bartch, ex-Toriitorlal Probate
Judge, tlnough the kindness of ex
Gov. A. L. Thomas, a kindness Judge
Bartch never remembers, ox-Territorial
District Judge, ox-Supremo judge,
through tho grace of tho political
ring organized by the Sllvor King
Mining company, and now supreme
judge of the great and growing state
or Utah, has condescended to emerge
from tho coat of congealed dignity
which surrounded his form and will
accept the United States senatorshlp
should an admiring legislature conde
scend to hand it to him on a gold plat
tor (it being understood that tho plat
tor goes with the senatorshlp).
When such an omlnent Jurist
Is willing to lower himself to accept
such a paltry position ns United
States senator it furnishes another
ovldenco of tho stability of our insti
tutions, nnd nssures us that tho fu
ture of tho country Is safe.
By all moans let this eminent gen
tleman bo elected. Ho Is a patriot of
Utah whom all should dollgth to hon
or. His presence in tho Senato cham
ber would drlvo all the senator sor
gums to tho cloak rooms, would cause
tho Goddess of Liberty to smile an
other smile, and Undo Sam to have
a now patch attached to tho domain
which remains forovor under tho pro
tecting caro of his protracted coat
tails. Tho peoplo learn with unadul
terated satisfaction that ho has been
endorsed by the legislatures of sev
eral states and by Hon. Thomas
Koarns. All that Is now necessary
is to have him endorsed by tho legls
laturo of Utnh, when from all parts
of tho land, particularly from Penn
sylvania, at husking nnd spelling bees,
in socials and sowing societies in
church and hall songs of joy nnd
gladness will rise like incense to the
skies, nnd abovo all will bo seen shin
ing llko the "phiz" of Horace Greoly,
tho refulgent resplendent faco of
Hon. George W. Bartch, United States
senator from Utah.
Ono of tho stalwarts, one of tho
strong men of tho land, passed to tho
beyond in the person of Colonel Wil
liam Ferry a few days ago, at tho rlpo
old ago of 81 years. Ho camo of good
stock nnd lived up to tho highest tra
ditions of his ancestors. Michigan
wns his nntivo state, but ho camo west
and more than a quarter of a century
ago planted his homo In Utah, and de
voted his energies and talents to min
ing. Presoveranco In the faco of great
difficulties and a largo share of brain
and musclo won and for many years
ho has enjoyed more than an ample suf
licioncy of this world's goods. He
was a man of sensitive feelings, al
ways kindly and considerate of others.
Ho made friends nnd kept them. His
homo and family life was Ideal and
wlthall ho over took a lively interest
In public matters. For somo years ho
was In poor health and his demise was
not altogether unexpected. In his
death Utah loses one of her foremost
and best cltlzons, the poor lose a good
nnd sympathizing friend, but the great
est bereavement falls on his family
who have tho sympathy of tho entire
THE FLOOD OF BOOKS.
It hns come to bo a trite observa
tion to any that about one-half of
America's population confess to "lit
erary" aspirations. The moro reading
of tho titles of now stories as they
como from tho modorn presses in an
over-Increasing flood would take up
all tho sparo tlmo of tho average man.
"Best soiling bdoks" now follow so
rapidly upon ono another that It is
1 'Jihjujjii i mi in HrifliiHjjrjrc
hard indeed to recall what was popu
lar a year or six months ago, whilo
of tho scores of books tho siles ot
which havo been phenomonally largo
during the past fow years, not half a
dozen have lived.
Now, of courso you knew all this
before, but a consideration of its sig
nificance In tho literary field possesses
First of all, it seems to us that the
demand for Action of today has grown
beyond normal proportions. Readers
now devour stories so rapidly and in
such quick succession that they havo
not tho time, if they possess the ability,
which Is often questionable, to appre
ciate them. Skillful advertising and
the "rush" of things In general have
both helped to bring about this con
dition. Tho effect of this heavy demand for
readable fiction has, In more ways
than one, been detrimental to the lit
erary taste of the public. The glitter
ing offers made by popular publishers
to writers of genius havo tempted
many of them to turn out work of
which a conscientious amateur would
bo heartily ashamed. Lust for gold
lias supplanted tho fire of genius in the
mind of dozens who a fow years ago
gavo promise of adding something
truly great to fiction.
It is easy to see how this hns low
ered tho public taste. Readers who
lack discrimination aro ready to take
a book because it Is tho work of somo
author who once did something good
to take it without question, and make
an Indifferent or bad talo their stand
ard of measurement.
The other phase of the question is
not less strong In Its bad effect. See
ing the tremendous demand for stor
ies, thousands of men and women,
"boys and girls even, rush for a tablet
and a lead pencil and blossom out as
writers in a single day. Fortunately
lor the public, only a small portion of
this "copy" ever gets into print, and
yet the amount of weak, inane, coarse
or worse stories that aro thrown out
for tho public to read is simply ap
palling to the lover of good literature.
There 'Is, however, a brighter side to
all this which should bo remembered.
Today the young writer of ability us
ually finds encouragement, sympathy
and success without a long period of
probation nnd starvation.
AQUARIUM FOR THE FAIR.
An aquarium which will conatin sev
eral hundred varieties of fish will bo
a feature of the United States gov
ernment exhibit at the Lewis and
Clark Centennial. Tho exposition
authorities havo received a communi
cation from tho government commis
sion asking that a supply of fresh,
cold water of 200 gallons a minute be
provided for tho fisheries wing of the
Hugo glass tanks from six to twelve
feet long will bo erected In the fisher
ies section, containing all known mem
bers of the finny tribe that the gov
eminent can collect. The tanks will
bo abovo tho level of the floor, and tho
light will como from abovo, so that
the visitors to tho exhibit can see the
flsh swimming about in their natural
element. Several hundred feet of
glass walls will bo necessary to dis
play the flsh tiuo to life. The depart
ment will bo In charge of experts from
the government dopaitmont, who will
attend to the proper caro and foedlng
of the fish.
It Is said that special arrangements
will have to bo made for tho accom
modation of tho Chinook salmon, as
ho will butt his head against the wall
If confined in a llmitr tank, causing
his own death. Imp. snt of restraint,
tho salmon would, it allowed, commit
suicide by charging against iho walls
of his prison. It is believed that to
overcome this suicidal propensity of
tho salmon that smaller circular tanks
will need to bo provided for the accom
modation of the chinooks. in bin
quarters tho fish could not get sum
cient headway, and tho curved wall
would not offer enough resistance for
him to kill himself by impact with th
