Through the persistent efforts of

office of the federal bureau of crop es

to Salt Lake, and the office absorbed
by the state organization.
Not long ago arrangements were
made to have a federal office of grain

immediately Salt Lake got busy and

; THOSE WHO ARE
"Putting poles between the spokes"
is the subject of a contribution by B.
j E. Harriman, which proves how our in
! difference or apathy is helping the en
emy. Uncle Sam Is straining hard to haul
his car up a steep grade. He is handi
capped by the clinging mud of apathy.
His feet are slimed wtih the spewings
of pro-German citizens and sly, sneak
ing aliens. They watch, eagerly hop
ing, for the first slip of a foot care
lessly planted. They work day and
night to render the way more impass
able, more hard to travel. They stand
about with quantities of soft soap
wherewith they hope to render his un
derstanding more unsafe. They are al
i ways sneaking to draw the hobnails
from his soles.
The boys have seen his need of aid.
They are flocking from every state
valiant, earnest, manly boys, intent
upon the task before them. They are
nearly there coming coming
ready, willing, eager to help. The old
gentleman spares a moment from his
task, standing braced that he lose
nothing of what he has gained, to
watch the throng that press towards
him. He rejoices in their hearty will
ingness, but, even as he smiles a wel
come, another throng interposes.
They come with shoyts of self lau
dation, cries of hysterical appeal to
the straining giant to hear and heed.
They declare themselves the" true pa
triots, the loyal helpers who have
come to saye him. He wonders why
they put no shoulders to the muddy
wheels, why every hand is yet uusoiled
by hone&t effort. Then he hears
their shoults and understands. "We
do not believe In war-cons'cientious ob
jectors no Americans in European
war-sleep and dream secure in the
peace of the unprepared this in Eng
land's war this is France's war the
Kaiser is our friend it is none of our
business peace at any price."
He sees pacifists that claw and bat
ter those who disagree with their doc
trines. He sees patriots who would
give up all, for a coward's peace. He
sees loyal legions who consult thet
emissaries of the Kaiser before they
vote on American measures. He sees
officials who cater to the alien and
half hertrtcd because they happen to
out-number ' tho genuine Americans.
Ho sees 'the coward, the traitor, the
selfseoker, the ..money grubbing alien
and citizen, the spy, the malingerer,
tho professional pacifist, tho constit
dent fearing law maker, all thrusting
their bulk before the helpers who are
struggling to reach his side.
His back Is arched and tense, the
muscles of his mighty thighs are knot
ted and- his arms swell with tho slip
and roll of great thews, as he nods
to those who reach their hands to help
"Como on, boys! We'll pull her
through a-flying," he shouts and thoy
cheer him as they come.
But the other throng throw huge
blocks of stone before the wheels.
They thrust poles between the spokes.
They drag at the car with all their
weight. They tear at the bags of food
it carries and scatter them in the mud,.
Some they burn and some they poison.
And all tho time they work to keep
his helpers from helping.
But soon the giant will los.e pntiene
with this throng of obstructors. His
voice will ring across tho hills and
"Come on', boys! Tjamplc the ras
cals In the mire if they will not go.
Patience has ceased to be a virtue.
Give them the only thing they under
stand force and make it swift. Thoy
prate of patriotism and do the deeds
of taritors. Give ' them traitors ra
tions." Then will the boys and men who are
real they who have trup hearts put
on the boots with the iron soles and
tread out tho pathway, breaking down
the weeds and nettles, kicking aside
the foul and decayed, and the sort of
"patriotism" that aids the enemy will
die as it deserves.
A DRIVE TO THE
When oyster beds in the north arm
of Great Salt Lake begin to produce
the succulent bivalve, Ogden should
have a boulevard, to that part of the j
inland sea, which would allow of an
automobile drive of 10 minutes to the
shores of the lake.
A road now leads through Wilson
Lane, on to West Weber and Warren,
and with a little work, tho highway
could be constructed to where Little
Mountain overlooks the saline waters.
With considerable traffic to the east
edge of the lake, a properly equipped
gasoline car could be operated at prof
it, carrying auto parties over the Lucin
cutoff to Promontory Point, where the
finest beach on the lake invites bath
ers to take a dip.
This lake drive could be made one
of Ogden's greatest assets as a scenic
wonder and a source of pleasure.
I Heretofore one of the big problems
has been the crossing of the Bear Riv
er arm of the lake which separates the
east shore from Promontory Point. Of j
late, eastorn railroads have been mak
ing use of a car for light traffic which
is an automobile on car wheels. In
Nevada a narrow gauge railroad, the
Nevada Central, transports passen
gers, mail and express a distance of
90 miles on one of these auto cars.
Undoubtedly the Southern Pacific,
co-operating with Ogden, would place
in service one of these cars during the

With a resolve to accomplish some
thing worth while, Ogden can make
Great Salt Lake a part of the attrac
tions now possessed by this city. With
Ogden canyon as a drive in one direc
tion, and the Dead Sea of America
annexed at the opposite side of the
city, no place on tho transcontinental
route would have more to offer in nat

A BLUNDER WHICH
Theodore Roosevelt, who Is a
mighty good American, notwithstand
ing he has faults, made a very big
mistake when, disregarding the rights
of Colombia, ho encouraged a revolu
tion which gave birth to the republic
of Panama. Fortunately, at a later
date, the United States proceeded to
repudiate the act, by making amends,
offering Colombia an indemnity.
This decision, to be fair with a
weaker nation, had an important bear
ing on our diplomacy with the nations
of South America, the fruits of which
are now being realized.
Our resolve to be honorable im
pressed Brazil, Argentina and Chile,
and led to the A. B. C. conference
which sowed the seeds of confidence.
It is now disclosed that, during tho
years prior to the war, German propa
ganda was constantly employed in
breaking down friendly relations be
tween tho United States and South
America, and, with tho beginning of
hostilities, every form of duplicity was
put forth to embarrass this countrV in
its intercourse with Argentina, Brazil
So, when the President of Argentina
became a pro-German, the one great
element that worked to his undoing
was the faith the United States had
inspired by being an honorable neigh
bor. Today the people of the Argentine
republic believe what wo tell them,
and, believing, they are about to send
the Kaiser a note to inform him they
have tho utmost contempt for him and
his perfidious representatives who
have been secretly conspiring to trick
and 'deceive the South American re
public into an enmity for the United
HOW THE DOCTOR'S WIN.
In 1898, or during the Spanish war,
our Iittlo army had 28,000 cases of ty
phoid fever and 2,800 typhoid deaths.
In three years there have been fewer
than 275 deaths from typhoid among.
the millions of British soldiers. We
will have little or none of it in our
army. Certainly, there is one great
milestone of progress in war for which
we have to thank medical science.
In the early stages of the war many
wounded men died from lockjaw. Now
all soldiers who have dirty wounds
are given an injection of tetanus anti
toxin when the wounds are dressed
and lockjaw is no longer a menace
to the soldiers. Within a year, an an
titoxin for gas-gangrene has been suc
cessfully developed and we have
learned how to treat infected wounds
