A frequent visitor to Ogden read
the article In the Standard headed,
j "Southern Utah Buy in Ogdon, " and
j be said
! "What Mrs Benon of Parowan
i eaya of Ogden merchants being able
to command a larger amount of the
business of the southern part of the
state is true, provided of course, the
proper amount of boosting Is done
"I have been an Ogdon visitor regu
larly during the past two years and
have lived In the southern part of
I Utah seventeen years. There is a

the people of my section in regard
I to your fair city They look upon
Ogden as a great overgrown village
that has a little larger population
than Provo and that there Is nothing
here hut railroad yards and 6hops
Why don't the business men of Og-
den disabuse their minds?
"You have your wholesale houses
In nearly every line of business and
can surely compete with Salt Lake
In prices. You have a city built In
the most likely spot In the west You
have natural resources close at hand
You have an Immensely rich terri
tory to the north of ou, the trade
of which you should monopolize en
tirely. Not a buyer from the north
should escape you, if you have the
goods that he wants If you haven t
the goods, get them Carry your
boosting campaign away into the
south. Tell them about yourselves
Prove to them that you have, the
goods and can deliver them
"Another thing let them tell you
all about our people It Is very no-1
tlceable that here In Ogden you don't
know much about southern Utah.
Take my word for it, they are not
savages. Go down and see them.
You'll find them an interesting and
hospitable people They are eager to
see the state of Utah forge to the
front and will 6tay with the com
munity that manifests the same spir

Our visitor hits the mark This j
city is not as well advertised In

threat to declare war has been set
forth in the Standard The leading
military authorities In the United
States, within the last few days, have
made the same declarations A mem

Is quoted as eavinp:

at the entrance to Manila bay, which
it is proposed to hold with this force,

with Whicq to protect. Pearl harbor
and Honolulu This island is but part

troops that it has ever been calcnlai

"In the United States we have a
partly trained militia of about 120,000
men of all arms and corps, a mobile
regular army aaliable of about 32,000
men and a coast artillery force of
about 15.000 men
"This last would be in the sea coast
defenses, so there would remain for
defense about 140 000 mobile troops,
all badlv organized, the majority of
which are half trained. To concen
trate these troops on our Pacific
coast, ehould there be no hitch in
transportation, would take from four
to five weeks. And it may be said in

If we consider next the probable

our fleet First, she can seize the
Philippines. Hawaiian islands and
Alaska. Second, she can seize the j
Philippines and attack the Pacific
coast. In either case she deprives our
fleet of a base on Its arrival In the
Pacific To do either of these she has
at her disposition transportation for
150.000 men exclusive of her fleer
This has been carefully estimated by
men whose duty It 1b to be familiar
with details of this nature
"If we are to Judge her chances of
success In the first case It has been
said that, using the vessels of the
Bmaller tonnage, escorted by her poor
er vessels of war, Bhe can In two
weeks disembark on the island of
Luzon in the Philippines two divi- I

reduce Corregidor 28 miles away.
In two weeks her fleet will hn'

lays of concentration and the impos

three weeks such troops a6 she may

fleet In lour weeks, before we could
have been able to concentrate, the;

most where they would."
Military men are making this un
prparedness serve as an argument
for a greater army and a more pov
erful nav. but the real weakness is
not that we have not a navy strong
enough but Is to be found in the blun

kept there, as the presence of the
ships means th distribution of lare

a sudden demand for the presence of
the warships on the Atlantic coast,

warning, there Is a possibility that. I

need of a strong fleet on the Pacific

of the Russian ships in Port Arthur
before declaring war. When that
eountrv decides that the time has ar
rived to dispute with America the
naval supremacy of the Pacific, there
will be no preliminary blowing of
trumpets, but simply a repetition of
the Russian affair
With the American navy concentrat
ed in the Pacific, the Japanese could
neither make a successful landing on
the Pacific coast of tho United States
nor gain possession of Manila or Cor
regidor island; in fact, with the Am
erican fleet in Pacific waters, the Jap

strength, would never make the al

William Jennings Bryan, who was
In Ogden long enough Sunday to ac
cept congratulations from Mrs K.
Bhepard, state president of the Utah
W. C. T. U., on his grape juice dinner
to the diplomats in Washington, e
plaining his attitude on strong drink,
"My life has been spent In publie
life, and my experience Is that If there
is one place where a man should not
drink It is In public life Nowhere
are temptations greater, and for this I
reason a man must carefully hold
, himself in hand After having been
in public life one-quarter of a century
I can testify there has never been
one day when 1 found that It would
have been advantageous to me to
drink And I never found that I lost
standing even among those who did
drink. I have never heard one eriti
cism made of my position as a total
"In thi6 respect I Bhall continue as
I have been going. I'll not change,
even in my high office, where some
persons think that in the interests o:
diplomacy this or that should be done
which does not exactly square with
their conscientious scruples American
diplomacy Is not the kind in which you
have to make a man drunk iu order
to deal with him "
Bryan promises to be more famous !
as the apostle of total abstinence than
as the orator of the "cross of gold"
speech, which won him his first great
distinction in public affairs
