I A JOHNSON VICTORY.
After two days of. nerve-destroying couteution, the Republican
I leaders yesterday finally reached a compromise on the league of na
I tions by agreeing to make no pledge to rati f 3' the league with or
' The majority of the delegates seemed to be in favor of the Lodge
proposal, to declare in favor of the league of nations with rcservu-
tions, but Johnson and Borah, with their threats of bolt, frightened
I their opponents and won a signal victory.
' Having developed a conscience which worried them, the Lodge
people got rid of the worry by smothering their consciences.
Johnson, up to the present, is the big outstanding man of the
convention. He has dominated, and Senator Smoot and other lead
ers have been kept busy appealing to him to be a nice boy in the
f, presence of company,
n With the league of nations disposed of, the party is now facing
I a promise of complete harmony.
I Having yielded to Johnson on platform construction, the regu-
I lars will expect .Johnson to gracefully accept defeat as a candi
I date for head of the ticket. They will try to put over AVood, and.
I failing, will take up Sproul or Knox. Whoever is named for first
I place, he wilMiave Johnson for his associate in the race for the presi
I dency. Then, with all elements reconciled, the party will present
I; a stronger front than at any time in eight years and should have
the Democrats at a disadvantage, as the Democratic party is far
from being as harmonious as it was in 1912 or 1 DIG. many 'of its big
senators having fought the administration and opposed the policies
'011 which the organization must make its campaign this year.
I ONE TERM FOR PRESIDENT.
A good suggestion comes from Governor Lowden of Illinois. He
' would, make the term of president six years and make the president
ineligible to succeed himself. He said:
"I have had one thing in' my mind for a good many years that
, I am going to suggest to the resolutions committee. In each con-
grcss in which 1 served I introduced a resolution for an amend
ment to the constitution making the president ineligible to succeed
himself. I have advocated before our constitutional convention the
incorporation of a similar provision in our. constitution wth refer-
ence to the governor.
"I have been persuaded that the .chief executive, either of the
state or of the nation, who knew that he would not succeed himself.
I do not care how good a man he is, he would make more achieve
ments with one term than he ordinarily would in eight years if,
during the. first, term, he were considering the question of renomina
tion." When asked whether he would make the term four years or six,
"In the resolution which 1 introduced repeatedly, in congress
! I extended the term to six years, but I am not clear upon that. I
; do not think that it is essential. I think that even a four-year term,
where, when the president went iu,.,he knew that if he was going
1 ! to achieve anything he had begun the first day of' his" term to do,
lj that he had only four years to carry out his idea, he would achieve
more in that four-year term than ordinarily was achieved in0 eight
years-." ' . . '
Ij WHERE THE PEOPLE STARVE. ' j
I Coming back from Russia, where they investigated ' conditions, j
Benjumin Turner and Thomas Shaw, members of the British labor!
delegation, stated that fifty per cent of the people ,of Russia 'are hun-j
gry, although everybody is getting a certain allowance of food.
! This is the iuside of soviet Russia as presented. by men friendly
to the soviet government.
It is admitted that S500 persons have been shot for acts of
I treachery, which means a wholesale slaughter of those who were
thought to be unfriendly to the new order of things. .
Some authorities place the executions at hundreds of thousands.
The labor delegates state there'is now no red terror, but admit
there is a very real terror in the cities in the form of hunger.
' What would follow in the wake of a red terror in the United
States, if Russia, made up principally of farming communities, is
1 suffering an appalling fate from the effects of Bolshevism V Jn
"V America society is more highly organized than in Russia. Here cit-
ies' of great size contain a very big percentage of the people. Were
j business to be destroyed, the urban population could not find sus-
tenance in the land. The inhabitants of the cities would be left to
$ starvetas they are starving in Moscow and Petrograd. and the return
to to industrial stability and confidence would be so slow that a cen-
j tury might not see the effacing of the horror.
I1 j CONVENTION CORRESPONDENTS.
I Readers of The Standard-Examiner should not fail to read Ar
thur Brisbane's or William J. Bryan's comments on convention ac
tivities. The two men arc on the ground in Chicago, and they are
f giving the sidelights without fear or favor.
Brisbane predicts the nomination of Johnson. He should be in
touch with convention sentiment, although no one is in position to
forecast what a body of men will do who are so divided in prefer
ences as the delegates meeting in the Coliseum,
j Bryan says Senator Lodge fizzled as a keynote speaker, and he
proceeds to point out some of the things the Massachusetts senator
j tailed to say.
; Bryan speaks well of Chaunccy Depew 's talent for humor, but
raps the old man over the knuckles for having gh en his life to the
I false and discreditable. He tells of the bright outlook Dcpew had as
; a young man, and then declares his years were devoted to sustain
ing big business in its illegal practices.
', Senator Depew, more than once in the past, has availed himself
of the opportunity to discredit Bryan and now the Nebraskau comes
, back at him with vigor.
Depew is of the old school of politics. He believes in the dollar
V as being above everything else in this world, and during all his ca
t ' rcer he excused and defended the avaricious.

If there is anything- holy this side
of heaven, it is a mother's prayer.
Into her prayer enters her faith. First,
her faith in God. That is something1
Then besides her faith in God is her
faith in her child. What a faith &
that! It never breaks down. No cloud
can blacken its sky. It shines withj
a light that exceor's the sun. When
everyone else has lost faith in you.j
your mother behoves in you. This is!
, the kind of faith she puts Into hor
She also puts in her hope. "What!
language can describe the picture a)
mother's hope paints .as. 6he looks
across her baby's face into the future?
She is building your career. She is
directing your destiny. She is clamor-
lng at the door of the gods for the'
best that they can give. It is an an

for you. It is a saint's vision of glory
her hope pulls down from the skies
to enrich the little life in her arms.

Ogden Highway Engineer
Makes Trip With State
Joseph Ririe, state auditor and
member 01 T.nc state road commis
sion, will make recommendations
for the curtailing of the road pro
gram in Grand and San Juan coun
ties to the completion of work al
ready well along, by the elimination
of improvements of the route where
a good road already exists, according
to B. M. Matleson, highway engineer
of the U. S. bureau of public roads.
Matteson returned yesterday from
the trip being accompanied on the
journey by Mr. Itirie. Part of the
travel waB made by train and part
by automobile, the main object being
to inspect work in progress on the
post-roads from Thompson to Moab
and from Moab to La Sal Junction.
Up until May 19, on the former
road tho- state had already spent
$131,309.37. part of which will be
returned by the federal government.
On the other road the expenditures
have passed the $153,000 mark.
By building a road from La Sallo
junction to the present road 14 miles
j of the distance between Monticello
land Moab can be saved, the road to
cost about $10,000. This will be con
sidered by the state and if accepted
will aid the farmers in that section.
Work on the Thompson-Moab road
is fast nearing completion according
to Matteson. A portion of the road
is already completed, the rolling
work being finished last week.
Labor troubles are hindering tho
work on the road and it is probable
that Indians in that vicinity will be
put to work on the road work.
