I AVOID THE FLAMBOYANT
In his appeal to the Republican convention. Senator Henry Cabot
Lodge offered advice which it would be well for all platform builders
to observe. He said:
'Let us not promise any millenniums or pledge our faith
to the performance of impossibilities. Let us simply lay be
fore the people our principles and policies, policies which
are at once vigorous and practicable and then pledge our
solves to do our utmost to carry these policies into effect.
This we can do and wc should bind ourselves no. further.
If the righteousness of our cause will not win, no false prom-
ises or delusive hopes will be of any avail. Let us be true
to our highest traditions because in them we shall find both
an inspiration and a guide.
Let past dissensions among ourselves be relegated to
history and forgotten by us. Let all honest differences as to
means and methods, if there are such, be set aside until No
vember in order that the great and overruling purpose in
which wc all agree and which we long to achieve may be
attained. Make our declaration of principles so broad, so
devoted to the one supreme object, that all may accept if
and all work for the same dominant result. Thus inspired,
thus united we may feel assured that when .the banners arc
lifted and the trumpets blown we shall march forth to a
victory, not for our party alone but for principles and
beliefs which are absolutely vital if the American republic is
to continue on its triumphant course and the hopes' of
humanity, so bound up in the fortunes of the United States
arc to be fulfilled.
I FEARS FOR HIS SON
When the father of Wan-en G. Harding heard that his son had
seen selected to head the Republican ticket, he expressed regret.
"With a father's love.- he fears that should his boy become president
he would be a shining mark for an assassin's bullet. He would prefer
to have his boy in a less distinguished position and feel that he is
safe, than to have him president of the United States.
It is .remarkable that in the greatest republic on the face of
the earth, where there is less oppression than is to be found in any
part of the world, the killing of the supreme head of government
has been repeated three times. During the world war one of the
things most feared was the possibility of the assassination of Presi
f Our democratic custom makes access to the presence of the presi
dent no more difficult than the entrance of an employe to a con
ference with his employer in Europe, and, as a result, whenever u
crank, an anarchist or a man with a brain storm becomes afflicted
with the idea that he should slay our chief magistrate, the way is
open to his murderous deed,
j Our presidents should be better guarded than they are. Of late
years a greater degree of precaution is taken than when Garfield,
unattended except by members of his cabinet, was' shot as he was
1 waiting to board a train.
McKinlcy was fatally wounded at a public a-cception at an ex
position. Roosevelt, then an ex-president, was shot while campaigning for
I NEWSPAPER MEN COMING
On Wednesday a distinguished party of newspaper men will
arrive in Salt Lake, according to the following message:
CHICAGO, June 13. Ninety-five newspaper men who
attended the Chicago convention bound for the Democratic
convention at S'an Francisco lefUiere tonight for the Pacific
coast on a special train. The party will arrive in Salt Lake
over the Denver &.Rio Grande railroad at 12:45 o'clock
Wednesday and will stop over there nine hours, where they
will be the guests of the Salt Lake newspaper men. The spe
cial train is under the direction of James D. Preston of
Washington. Many of the writers are going to see the Great
Salt lake for the first time.
If the special train is scheduled to go to the coast over the
Southern Pacific railroad, the writers will arrive" in Ogden too late
dn the evening to accept of Ogdcn hospitality, but they should be
given an invitation even though their arrangements prevent a stop
over. Ogden should court the attention of the newspaper men of the
nation and. when the opportunity is presented, hold the attention of
he men who are the greatest single factor in the upbuilding of the
I RABIES AND DOGS
Ever since the coyotes of Oregon were inoculated with the germs
of rabies, the intcrmountain country has been fighting to suppress
the disease which has spread to dogs. ;
Within the past two weeks the state board of health has ordered
Tthc authorities of Ogden to clean out the vagrant dogs of this city
and to kill every dog not muzzled,
the drastic order is given for the purpose of safeguarding
human life. At least three heads of dogs sent to the state laboratory
have shown the necessity of Inking this action.
At this time of year dogs are running in packs and, in addition
to carrying a threat against humanity, they makeup a barking, yelp
nig nuisance, which should be abated even to the extent of cutting
down the dog population one-half.
The dog tax collector, who of late has been given a deputy,
should reduce the stray dog pest to a minimum.
I THE PARKS OF OGDEN
The band concerts on Sundays arc drawing large crowds to Lorin
! Parr park. Evidently the people enjoy this wholesome diversion.
Eventually Ogden must enlarge its parks, if for no other. purpose
than to afford the outdoor amusement which today causes so many
1 ' of our people to travel away from, home to be entertained,
i ' The parks,, as breathing spots, are an inestimable asset to Ogdcn.

"Tho position of eilvor Is singularly
fortunate. It lo one western commo

erally have continued to advance to
the point where they must recede be
fore very long. If the peak has not
been already reached. The silver re
cently sold in the United ISates for
lo3s than ?1 an ounce was evidently
not mined in this country.
"I am glad to bp able to say that
there is no possibility of the price of
our domestic silver going below $1 an
ounce for several years.
"Under the Pitt'rran act, 270.000.000
ounces of silver coins were molted and
sold, which the government is obliged
to replace at H an ounce. Only 70,
000.000 ounces have been thus far
purcnaseu, so that tnere remains uo,
000,000 ounceo to be purchased. The
silver to be purchased by the govern

stabilized at that minimum price for
