OGDEN TO HAVE 50.000
L. A. Becker, brother of G. L. Beck

and returned here the early part of
this month, noting that the Standard
Is boosting for 60.000 population in
1920, Bays we are too conservative,
that Ogden should reach those figures
In less time. He has traveled over
the country', from New York to Ocdcn
and has found no city the slzo of
Ogden that Is more progressive,
shows more signs of prosperity or
has a brighter future.
That is the Judgment of a majority
of outsiders who are in a position to
compare Opden with other cities of
25.000 to 35,000 population.
When Oeden had grown to '20,000.
the Standard predicted that the eft
would go forward by its own mo
mentum. And that has proved true.
The federal census gave us 25,580.
The school census indicates an In
crease In population to 30,100, or at
the rate of 1500 a year. That ratio

GIRLS WHO DRINK IN
Ogden has a number of places
where simnc drink Is sold to women
and girls, and that Is considered dis
graceful In a city which outwardly
1b clean, but Ogden's lapses from n
high moral plane arc only venal when
compared with Salt Lake's offending
Here Is the Deseret News, than which
there is no higher authority on the
subject, proclaiming to the world:
"In our city, as In all larger cities,
we have places called saloons where,
women are admitted, and every eve
ning, when they are open, young glrlo
can be seen emerging from them, vis
ibly affected by liquor Sometimes
they are escorted by drunken men.
and sometimes they are alone. We
wonder If their parents know where
they are, and what company they
keep. It seems to us that the Social
Service commission might do a good
work by looking after the young boys
and girls which frequent such places
and If possible, to aid their parents,
or guardians. In rescuing them from

When the curfew sounds at nigh',
the doors of the saloons of Ogden are
closed. In Salt Lake there is no clos

are Informed that the liquor law is
a farce In that city. and. accepting
the statement of the News, there Is
only one conclusion to reach and that
Is Salt Lake is wide open to men.
women and children.

THE PARADOX OF
The strongest editorials on the Su'
zer case have come from the pen of
E. A. Van ValKcnburg. editor of the
Philadelphia North American. In the
last issue of that paper at hand Is n
tribute to Sulzer's steadfastness In
the teeth of certain destruction, in
which Sulzer's weaknesses and
strength are presented in a frank
manner, as follows.
Boss Murphy'6 jeering prophecy,
that under the very first assault from
Tammany. Governor Sulzer would
crumple like a piece of wet paper haa
been proved false. Even the supreme
exhibition of the criminal machines

islature to commit high treason
against the Empire state has not
hroken him down.
We wish It were possible to picture
Governor Sulzer as a knight ot stain
less virtue defying the host of c:.
a militant crusader wielding the
sword of righteousness against the
powers of darkness
But to pretend that he appears In
such a guise would be folly. In dis
position, character and capacity, he
Is almost the antithesis of the figure
of knight errantry. Some traces of
Don Quixote's spirit constitute his
nearest approach to the ideals of chiv
alry. He is neither a warrior nor a build
