The Associated Prois l oxcluilvely entitled to the use for republication of any
nsws credited to It not otherwise credited In Dill paper and alio the local nev
I election and inauguration.
Advocating Hint tin- .Into of o presidential election and inaugu
ration be brought closer than November of one year and Marth of
the following year, the officers of the American Bar Association
have recommended thai a change be made as suggested, and an .-ast-ern
paper, commenting on tin- subject, says
The ailininistratn.il of a president who, near the end
of his tirst term is defeated t"r a s nd is discredited as
having received a vote i wanl of confidence. During its
final four months, of urse. such an administration carries
no prestige either .ii horn abroad And in the final four
months of auj administration, particularly if it is to be
succeeded by one of different political pnnViplcs and poli
cii , there is n lack of initiative in government which, in
easily conceivable circumstances, might not only embar
rassing but positively dangerous.
For instanee, in the period between McKiniey'a election
and his inauguration the Cuban question might have devel:
oped n demand for immediate action which it would have
greatb embarrassed Presidcnl ( 'leveland t tak. Again,
this historic example of the opportunities to prepare for se
cession of the slaw state; which were aeeordc ! by disloyal
federal offi.-m's under Imciui nan in the four months fol
lowing the election of Lincoln stands as a convincing proof
of the evil of the nation's broad twilight zone in govern
ment In matters of importance to the nation no retiring pres- ,
ident would care to initiate polii ies which he did not expect
his successor to carry oul or i saddle an incoming adfflin
afnatinri with the eonseouenees of policies it W()Uld not have
I chosen for itself The result, therefore, is a period of almost
complete governmental inactivity.
The dates of the president's election and inauguration
were determined original!) by congress to suit the necessi
ties of that time Tin- date of the inauguration has since
been fixed by an amendment to the constitution It can be
changed, therefore only in the same way. The date of the
election could be changed more easily and there are many
strong reasons why it should be changed.
CAREFUL MILK TESTS
Sot important is the supervision of the milk supplies of large
cities that great care is exercised in the work an.! organizations arc
formed the sole object of which is to prescribe rules, enforce the
same and require tests
Lately the 'New York Milk Committee'' has offered to fur
aish Ogden with speakers and literature to promote legislation rela
tive to milk and milk products
At the suggestion of the National Commission on Milk Stand
ards, the New York Milk Committee has organized a service bureau
as an aid to those cities in need of better official control of their
In the earlier campaign for pure milk, it soon was apparent that
the chief obstacle in the waj ol securing a clean ami safe milk sup
ply for New York, as v. ell as other American cities, was the fact
that public health offiicals and other authorities ere not agreed as
to standards of purii foi milk. To meet this need, the New York
Milk Committee organized in 1911 and has since financed, a na
tional commission on milk standard) i insisting of J of the leading
authorities in the United States and Canada on public health ami
aiilk sanitation The members of this commission were carefully se
lected as to the include chemists, bacteriologists, health officers and
agricultural experts who would represent different parts of the coun

Through the meetings of this commission, unanimous reports
and recommendations have been obtained These have been pub

I A SAVAGE DEMAND.
A Salt Lake paper, after the announcement had been made
I of Mayor Bock's confession oi guilt, neeompanied by a state-'
I ment of restitution and reparation, urged that the former mayor be
relentlessly pursued to the end
The old Mosaic demand w as pleaded, of an eye for an eye and ;
a tooth for a tooth
, Civilization is getting awaj from the ancient idea of vengeance.'
I Which found its highest enforcement in the rack, when transgressors:
were tortured to death
No petty offender was ever so severely punished, no wrong-doer!

The ordinary violator of the law can escape to where no one
pursueth, but one who has been so bighlj honored must face ob

Would you have a pound of flesii, or would ou pluck out the

stake and torturing him. That was savage pleasirre which came
from seeing a human being writhe in agon;.. Have we some of that
