I, ' I IS A REVOLUTION COMING?
I There is loud talk of revolution. Yesterday's Standard-Exam-!
iuer had a dispatch from Washington, in which the department of
justice was quoted as having discovered an agitation in favor of vio
No bo'dv of men in the United States should so deceive them
' . Selves as to 'believe violence can be successful in this' country. This
fs the most, liberal country on the face of the earth. The government
, is so organized that, when a majority has a real grievance, a remedy
js provided in t lie ballot box. ' .
: I Of course, if citizens simply Complain during 364 days in the
' year and on election day fail to vote their -sentiments, it becomes
j Evident they have no deep or nbiding convictions', and no -complaint
That stirs their conscience, otherwise they would vote as they taJk. '
I Since the war many men have grown restless and strange
thoughts have possessed large numbers of workers. The editor, was
1 jiscussing public questions with a chance acquaintance who boarded,
the same" car. The fellow spoke openly or drastic action. Unsaid
the workers no longer would go half way; that -when they became
hungrv thev would obtain whatever they desired.
I The man was well dressed, and above the average in intelligence,
but it was plain he had become obsessed with the idea that the time,
fiad arrived when America could be made a Russia, where, by anar
chy and no regard for established rights, the whole order of society
ft ad been changed.
I But Americans are not Russians and will not yield to the des
L pcrate deeds of the soviet, r.d, furthermore, America is a more eom
I I plcx industrial and commercial nation which, once disorganized by
5 f revolution, would slump into the bottomless pits of misery, deslitu
lJi 1 ion and crime. .
1 In Russia the Bolshcviki shot, down the intellectuals, wrecked m
I I Sustry and appropriated food and clothing. Russia is a country
1 1 fvherc there is no highly developed industrial pursuits. Nearly all
m the people live on farms' or in small villages. When anarchy reincd
1 11) supreme, the peasantry found sustenance and shelter on the farms.
1 1'j - "What would happen in America, if a similar reign of terror were
1 1 to prevail?
I All the great manufacturing centers would be swept as by lire.
I ; Inclustrv would be flattened to the earth. With only a small per
I S centagc of the people devoted to the cultivating of the soil, millions
I ! of men, women and children would starve before the big industries
I 1 could be re-established and the machinery of commerce restored.
I : The war in Europe would be a pleasant memory compared with
1 the horrors of this debauchery of civilization.
I Whenever men begin to think of violence as a means to an end,
I they must look farther ahead tharf, the mere inflicting of a mastery
I jl over those who now arc the ob.icctof -their revenge; they must ask
I themselves as to the jMiins anarchy will leave, and then survey the
I 1 entire field to discover how tfteTFis to be a rebuilding on the scenes
jfn of their wild excesses. '
ffj In one day the hand of destruction could do more damage to a
B country so complex in its organizations as is America, than ten years
of industry could repair, and one month of the firebrand and dyna
W miter would leave wreckage almost beyond recovery.
T OUR VISITORS, THE GULLS.
H ,. This is the season of the year when the seagulls come in from
H , the Pacific to nest on the islands of Great Salt Lake and find food on
H ) the nearby stretches .of land. The birds arc protected by the laws of
H Utah ahd'becomc so tame as to follow close to the farmer who, plow-
Hh ing: up his land,' turns over the worms which 'are dainties on the
H seagulls menu.
H j In the railroad yards of Ogden, the seagulls are scavengers, and
H they are there by the hundreds. Their cry can be heard from early
H morning until late al night.
Hr k New Yorkers, it seems, do not consider the birds with the same
H favor as is shown by the pioneers of Utah who never cease to be
Hl thankful that, in the" days of founding an inland empire, they were
H saved by the gulls from complete devastation of crops when the
H grasshoppers appeared on the first cultivated areas of this valley.
In New York, it is stated, the gulls have come to look upon Central
H park as an oasis for weary wanderers of the air. But the park has
HH 1 become over-populated with the seagulls, and a. rpniedy vrns sought.
H ' Tt is being furnished by 0. D. Eliason of the Salt Lake firm of Brad-
H ley & Eliason, general' agents for an "automatic exploder," original-
lfl 5y designed to scare coyotes from sheep bedding grounds. New
BH York City has ordered an exploder which emits light as well as noise.
HH $ This is a 'case of too much of a good thing. Like ttic sparrows,
filH the gulls arc welcomed so long as they are not too numerous,
flH I This exploder which is being sent from Utah is intended to fool
HB She gulls, which is a reminder that the birds are easily deceived, in
BB Jact are as reac1.v tricked as arc a number of human beings, who
jjHH fire known to be gullible.
I ' : ' OGDEN MORE IMPORTANT, .-v;;';.A-'
r Word comes from Washington that 500 governfiient trucks arc
to be shipped to Ogden, to be cared for by the federal road bureau
"with offices in the Col. Hudson building
To properly house these trucks $50,000 .of corrugated iron and
lumber will be needed,
f This move proves how quickly one government establishment
brings another. The first move AVas the placing of a dozen trucks in
Ogden. Then a small shed was erected in the south part of the. city
to provide a covering for a second shipment. Now Ogden is to be
i the supplying and distributing center for all the territory covered
j I 'by the surveyors who go out of Ogden, and, it is not too much to ex
jl ( pect the making of Ogden a supply point for all kinds of government
L I . tools and machinery employed in federal road work.
c With district forest headquarters and the federal road bureau
here, and the government establishing supply depots, Ogden is rap
j idly growing in importance on the map consulted by federal offi
Dn sials. j
I WHEN THE CITY .CLEAN-UP COMES.
v Do not overlook clean-up week which the city authorities have
'designated as commencing next Monday. But in cleanin'g up, be
fair to the city. Do not dump alL your surplus real estate on the
curb and expect a generous administration to cart away the accu
. mulation of a life time.. If you have more than a fraction of a load.
H. call a team and have the work done at your own expanses, but if you
H; are 0nly one of many with a few buckets of ashes and tins, then
H ! take note of the days when the city trucks will visit your district
H and the day before, wheel your rubbish to the curb line. Place your
H l dirt so the gutters, if rain falls, will not be clogged.
, In every city where civic pride is cultivated, the citizens do not
H ! defer everything worth while to city officials to be paid by the city
IH i treasury. They do their full part, and rejoice in the opportunity te
I; help beautify, and improve their-home- town. .

BORX THAT AVAY.
Some folks aro born with spirits
sour, tholr nuturo Is to whlno; the
planets, at their natal hour, wore lnn
ly out of lino. They oamo complain
ing to the earth, and squawk throuph
all their days, and they can see no
sense In mirth, they frown oh joyous
jays. They choose the grimmest nor:
of creed that filled with threats of
pain; for thoi Is naught will fit their
need, that's pleasant, kind or sane.
They arc the sad and gloomy frett-ks
who groan with every breath, who see
the bloom on maiden cheeks tho talk
of worms and doath. In vain the op
timist may try to cheer up gents llko
these; they'll answer with a dismal
sigh his gladdest, brightest "whccr.e.
They'll say his logic, blithe and brave,
la merely spundlng brass; they'll drool
a while about tho grave, and claim ai:
flesh is grass. They make mo weary
and distraught when I with them
commune; by them December chill Is
brought into the midst of June. And.
oh. I piiy such poor guys, who cannot
gsyjy laugh, who wipe the briny from
their eyes, and quote an epitaph.

which tlie American people face today
could be settled, not by organizations

A Christian layman was talking to
a group of manufacturers on Chris
tian co-operation. Uno of them re
plied, "Your theory Is nil right, but it
will not work In practice. 1 tried my
best and the labor agitators have tied
up my business."
Then the speaker put this question:
"How many of your employes have
you as a friend, not as their employ
er? How many have you visited In
their home? Do you know their home
surroundings, by 'visiting that em
ploye and passing a few moments
around his' awn fireside with his fam
ily?" ' , , ' '
"Why, none', of course," was hi an
swer. , t
"Yet, those labor agitators ,-whom
you arc complninlng about have visit
ed them," said tho speaker. "They
know the needs of that family, they
know the thoughts of that family.
How many of you know It? Suppose
you visit with them one night a month,
mingle with them, be ono of them.
Have your superintendent and your
foreman do tho samo and ee If U
would make any difference with them.
Meet them on tho common level as
men meet men, not a men meet ani

labor difficulty Is tho distance between

of personal touch stands In the way
of hparty co-operation. World do

How would YOU r jW
THAT is the kind of increase in salary the 1.
minister has received. His living expenses
have risen just as fast and as far as yours.
But he is paid on the average just 52 cents H
. more per church member than he was. paid 34 H
The Minister Never Fails You
Every officer of the Government with a war message to
deliver appealed to the ministers first of all. 'H
But 80 ft of the ministers receive less income than govern- 1
ment economists figure as a minimum for the support of an 'H
average family. 'H
When hospitals need money they enlist the support of the v t im
ministers and receive it ri HH
But when sickness visits the minister or the members of wM
his family they must be treated in a charity ward. His pay WM
is less than a day laborer's.
We Pay Him Half the Wages of a Mechanic JH
8 out of every 10 ministers receive less than $20 a week 'B
about half the pay of a mechanic. And of these pitifully in
adequate salaries, how much do you contribute? Nothing if .
you are outside the church; an average of less than 3c a day HI
if you are a church member. H
All of us share in the benefits of Christian ministers to the H
community. They marry us; bury us; baptize our children; HU
visit us when we are sick. In their hands is the spiritual
training of the youth. nKt
We Are All Profiteers at Their Expense lUf
Part of the Interchurch World program is this a living -IHl
wage for every minister of Jesus Christ; an efficient plant and j'H
a chance to do a big man's job. iB
If you want better preachers, help to pay the preachers . t
better. It's the best investment for your community and HH
for your children that you can make. j HSJ
