Mr. Briant S. Young, well known m
local literary circles, has written f
drama entitled "Taps and Reveille."
The story of tho play deals with inci
dents of tho civil war. Those, who
havo read the manuscript havo been
agreeably surprised at tho amount of
dramatic ability displayed by Mr.
Young. It is described as being
strong In dramatic situation, spirited
and stirring dialogue befitting a mili
tary atmosphere, while, in pleasing
contrast to tho general virility of tho
story, run tho gentle threads of a ten

ROBINSON VS. JAP.
Next Monday evening Eddlo Robin
son and a Japanese disciple of Jiu-jitsu
will meet on tho mat to determine
which is be3t, catch-as-catch-can wres
tling or the Nippon stylo of breaking
bones. Robinson is confident that ho
will be able to jam two shoulders of
the yellow man down to tho carpet,
while tho Mikado's subject Is equally
sanguine of twisting Eddie's arm off
at the elbow. The Japanese science
of placing an opponent hors do combat
lias become a fad during tho past
year, and. oven tho president has been
learning tho art. But beyond tossing
Tom Sharkey over his shoulder and
sitting on him, none of tho Japs seem
to havo done anything with profes
sional wrestlers. Robinson Is confi
dent of winning, because ho thinks
there is nothing in tho-Jnp stylo ex
cept when used against a man ignor
ant of tho methods of breaking holds
of all sorts. Against one accustomed
to wrestling ho believes tho Jap has
no show. Henco ho expects to win.
That there will bo a largo crowd of in
terested spectators, both white and
yellow, Is expected.

AN EDITORIAL ATTORNEY.
Week beforo last wo missed tho
Randolph Nows. For a time wo fearod
Editor McKlnnon hud failed In busi
ness, or died, but in the current Issue
wo discover tho cause of his omission
of ono publication. Hero it Is:
"Wo feel that wo owe our readers
an apology for tho manner In which
they were treated by us last week In
not getting out an issue of tho paper.
As somo of them no doubt are aware,
that tho editor of this paper has been
ambitious In tho direction of tho law
for somo tlmo nnd has boon taking a
courso In lnw, and on Thursday of last
week In company with somo others,
was examined by a committee appoint
ed for thnt purpose, and on Monday,
February 13, 1D05, was duly admitted
as an attorney nnd counselor at law In
tho Supremo court of tho stato of
Utah. This was tho causo or our ab
sence nnd wo could get no help to get
our paper out whllo wo woro away.
Wo hope this explanation will bo sat
isfactory to our readers."
Brothers McKlnnon Is to bo con
gratulated on having fixed hlmsolf so
when a delinquent subscriber de
clines to pay ho can Instltuto nn ac
tion against him without having to
biro an nttornoy.
During tho anthracite coal strlko
Republican and Democratic papers
allko jumped on to tho snered person
of Hon. David Bennett Hill because
ho ventured to have Incorporated Into
his polltlcnl platform a declaration to
tho effect that if tho mino owners
would not oporato their mines tho pub
lic had a right to. But hero comes tho
states of Kansas, Colorado and Mis
souri with laws establishing oil rofln- 1H
orles to bo conducted by tho stato, or jsH
tho public, and we note sovcral of the fl
newspapers which criticised Hill com- ffflH
mending tho action. It makes a wholo .HH
lot of dlffcrcnco whoso ox Is gored. tHHI
Congressmen got up nnd assort that 11
they do not hollove In anything thnt fSBl
tends to destroy the Individual effort jiH
i of man, ami they stick to it until WIiHI
their own toes nro trodden upon. Stan- stHI
dnrd Oil has stepped on tho toes of 'll
Colorado, Kansas and Missouri and , SB
IIioho states arc going to retaliate, ' HhI
even though tho retaliation is so- t
clnllstlc In principle. Surely tho So- UHl
clallst ought to bo grateful to tho UHl
Standard Oil people for helping their fliH
