H LABOR DAY; A REMINDER.
H f fdabor Dnj' is a reminder oC the jjrowth of organized labor. It
H ) is 110t many years since hard-headed business men opposed unionism
Hl ' us 'a- source of danger; today the uverago leader of industry favors
H' I labor organizations that arc conservatively directed, and none would
H ! go back to the old conditions of cheap men, Avith the meanest men
Ht j M in business gaining an advantage by grinding down their employes.
H Ij Of course, labor unions, to be worthy of continued confidence,
Hj j must not demand moro than they arc willing to give; they must
H ' I stand for exact justice and bo guided by men of high honor and
! fairness. They are, properly ruled, u mighty force capable of com-
pelling the big corporations and othor combinations of capital to
j accord a fair wage for a fair day's work. They are absolutely ncces-
HT ) sary in these days of combinations, to resist the big interests that
H j " would debaso labor, if unopposed by a solid front of organized
H I! labor.
M j j MORE STANDPAT SNEERS.
H ' The Salt Lake TTcrald-'Ropublican says it makes little difference
H I whether Senator LaFollette is "safe and sane," and then that paper
H v' ' proceeds witli this vapid comment :
Ls, ' - "The senator from "Wisconsin is never likely to be in a posi-
H i tion where he can do flic business of the country the damage
H which his ill-considered and ill-advised remarks and attitude
H j (s would lead one to expect. Senator LaFollette will be "safe and
H sane" because he will lack the opportunity to he anything else."
B That sneer fails to lie effective. Had LaFollette never gained
K prominence; had he never been elected a senator and then re-elected
Hl! by the largest majority ever given a candidate in "Wisconsin seeking
f popular indorsement; had he never won the plaudits of the people
' , , of the nation by his vigorous attacks on corruption; had he never
M , v been the principal cause in destroying the "standpat" majorit' in
!- congress; liad ho never incurred the onmity of the senatorial hirc-
HM ! ' lings of the predatory interests; had he never won a commanding
H j position before the American people; had none of these achievements
H r j been credited to him, it might have been other than silly to main-
m fl j tain that the man is not to be reckoned with.
H' LaFollette tod.i' is a thorn in the side of even senator and
H; congressman whose soul is perturbed with the thought that the
B! ' people arc being enlightened by LaFollette' as to the real conditions
K in politics and that the unscrupulous "statesmen" are being un-
Hi masked by the Wisconsin man.
Hl The Salt lLakc paper, in closing its criticism of LaFollette, strikes
H at all the Progressive senators, saying:
Hf v "The insurgents would not prove dangerous to Ir. Tafl if
B 'they Avere able to get together; hut that will never happen.
B There is but one subject upon which two insurgent senators can
Hj agree, and that is that tho other would never be the proper
H v candidate for president. That sort of an understanding does not
H "' 7 spell political victory."
H j "If Uiey Avero able to get together."' That is enough to provoke
B jl " a laugh. "When Taft heard the returns from the last congressional
1 I ' election, he had a statement prepared by his secretary, announcing
K" ji I that lienceforth ho Avould recognize the Insurgent senators and con
K gressmen as entitled to federal patronage. Evidently the Insurgents
H H had gotten together in numbers largo enough to frighten Er. Taft
Hi' into making the blunder of offering a bribe to the Insurgents. Then
H' ft again Avhcn cougress met, the Insurgents placed the administration
R J; : followers in the minority in tho senate. Did the Insurgents get to-
H . gether when they forced nearly oil the members of Taft's cabinet to
H j : turn lobbyists, entreating congress not to further embarrass the
H j The "Standpatters" arc slow to realize the great change in public
J ) J sentiment that is causing tho people to break away from the paid
ff? servants of the "interests," but eventually they will realize that their
HH I J stupidity has been their undoing.
H ; iff . v PRESIDENT BARS DRESS SUITS.
H i f v
H - A recent dispatch from Beverly says that President Taft doea
B j j . not Avant to be pestered Avith dress suit dinners on his western tour.
V j , He Avants to meet the plain people in. plain clothes and unhampered
K i ' by $5 tickets ofadmission. llints to this effect have been sent out,
B 'ij j and already there haA'e been several responses.
Hf L It is stated that this new order 'of the president has. already
B V S Avon him man' friends in the opposite party. Men are men and a
' ) IJ, business man is as uncomfortable in a dress suit as is the president
K ' J or a senator.
H-' fl j BASEBALL ETIQUETTE.
! Exasperated by the jeers that 'came from the bleachers, a base
ball player lost his temper and hurled a ball at the crowd, breaking
the arm of a spectator.
kJ' "What folloAved might have been expected.
H I : The croAvd SAvarmed on to the field and for a time it looked seri-
I ' ous for the ball player, and it Avas only after the injured spectator
' 1 : made his Avay through the croAvd and pleaded for the offender that
j ho and the officers avIio tried to protect him Avere permitted to go by
H the angry spectators.
Hf' j There is a great deal to be said ou the subject of baseball eti-
K ' quette, says the Butte Miner.
r ' Managers in all leagues haA'e done their best and Avith praisc-
H, "' -worthy results to eliminate every vestige of roAvdiness from the base-
H; I ball field,
'r J ' 'l,c l"Bli standing of the game demands that such be the case.
Hk - Umpires haA'e more poAver. Players must conduct themselves
H; , properly.
" Spectators are there to see a scicnlnfic, skillful and exhilarat-
Hl ' ing game played, and not to Avitncss exliibitions of temper and coarse
Bt' : tactics.
H : On tho other hand, there is a great deal of talk from the bleach-
H; , ;' ers and grand stand that can be eliminated to good advantage.
B There is needless abuse and needless roasting.
H I There is no doubt of the fact that the, game arouses enthusiasm,
p I but personal invectiA'e and the like certainly never could be classified
H I as any part of enthusiasm.

M HIGH PRICES OF FOOD.
B ' Processions of Avomen arc said to" be marching through northern
R; !f Francp in protest against the high prices of food products and in-
H'? cidentally smashing things, presumably with the intent to cheapen
B; ',. them u bit.
H: "What makes the marching ladies think that smashing up dairies
H; ; and trampling doAvn gardens Avill loAver the price of cheese and vege-
, tables Ave do not knoAV. It may be only womanly intuition, says
Hl '' the San Francisco Chronicle.
H ',' The American people suffer from high priccss only to the extent
K: that social and political agitation is depriving them of Avork.
i i Our standard of living is higher than that of other people and
Hj always has been, for the reason that the rapid development of a cen-

LONG AUTO TRIP
OF IM FAMILY
.SALT IKE, Sept. 3. Glenn R.
Bothwell of Salt Lake City, his wifo
and throe children have JuBt com
pleted an automobllo trip of nearly
8,000 miles, going from Salt Iike
City to Boston and return Mr. Both
well claims the distinction of being
the first amateur driver to take a
car across the Rockies and to the
Atlantic coast and returu. Tho trip
was one of pleasure only and all
members of the party enjoyed tho
outing to the utmost.
AVlth Mrs. Bothwell, their daughter,
aged 20 and two sons, aged 1C and 12
years, Mr. Bothwell left this city June
11, driving a Wlnton "six" soven
paascnger touring car. The party
carried camping equipment and spent
many nights beneath the skies when
hotel accommodations wero lacking.
Several days out tht party ran Into
a big rainstorm and camped out ono
night during a great downpour.
The Bothwell party procoeded In a
leisurely manner. A stay of two days
was made at Stronsberg", Neb., whore
Mr. Bothwell at ono time resided,
and a fortnight's visit Avas mado his
parents at Rochello, III. The Mississ
ippi river was crossod at Clinton and
from Chicago they followed the lako
route, passing through Toledo, Clove
land, Buffalo nnd Nlngara, thence to
Ithaca and Albany, following the Hud
son river to New York City,
CrosEcd the Catskllls.
The party visited Boston and start
ed tho return trip from that point.
Tho auto was steered through the
beautiful Catskill mountain couutrv
to Buffalo, from which point tho
route Avas retraced to Chicago and
thenco to this city A sister and
niece of Mr. Bothwell made tho trip
with the party as far as Chicago.
"The trip was thoroughly enjoy
able," said Mr. Bothwell. "We found
some good roads and of course some
bad stretches, but there Is a general
improvement of roads In all sections
of the country, and within a year or
two it will be comparatively oasy to
cross tho continent by auto. Some .
places In the crossing of tho Rockies
arc dangerous, but can be negotiated
with care and patience."
In tho long1 Journey the car was
only once In a garago for repairs, not
a serious aqcldent marring tho pleas

worn out and about S00 gallons of

Whllo on the trip Mr. Bothwell

on the subject of business. "I wanted

entire trip did I ask a quqstlon rela

CATTLE WAR PROmiSED
li TOOELE COUNTY
SALT LAKE, Sept '3 A war be
tween cattlemen in western Tooele
county, in which similarity of brands
and other means of Identification of
stock are said to bo involved, may
be precipitated at the trial of F. F.
Snivley, owner of an extensive ranch
at Ibapah, which takes placo at Wen
dover, September 8, when Snlvloy
will havo to answer to charges of
stealing three head of cattle from
John A. ErlckHon, owner of tho Last
Chanco ranch In Deep Creek.
Sheriff M. M. Bush, who arersted
Snivley August 25, upon complaint
of Erickson, spent several hours In
Suit Lake yesterday investigating cer
tain details In connection with tho
cattle stealing case. Ho would not
discuss what these are, but admits
t,hat considerable fooling has -been
stirred up among cattlemen in west
ern Tooole county over "misunder
standing ' In rogard to stock, which
from a lcal viewpoint can only be
Interpreted as cattle stealing
AVheu Erickson learned that Sniv
ley was about to take 300 head of
cattle to Wendover and ship them
from that point to Omaha, he gath
ered several of the cowboys about
liim and, heavily armed, followed the
Snivley herd. As the cattle wero
about to be loaded Into stock cars
:it Wendover ho cut out three of his
3teers and corraled them for evidence.
Ke then summoned Sheriff Bush and
Snivley was arrested. Following his
iirraigument he was released under
$2,000 bond. Snivley claims that tho
cattle cut out by Erickson aro his
Snlvloy has many supporters and,
an tho other hand, Erickson is backed
by a largo following of cattlemen,
who havo urged him to push tho
case to the limit.
This activity of the" Erickson fac
tion Is being regarded with serious 1.
concern by the cattlemen who are
frlondl to Snlvloy, and since his ar
rest thoy are said to have displayed
a vengeful spirit by refusing to recog
nize or speak to any of tho Erickson
Sheriff Bush and his deputies are
keeping a close cyo on developments,
and should the situation become ser
ious after the trial of Snivley, it Is
probabio that numerous arrests will
be made, in view of averting an act
ual war botween cattlemen. Disputes
over the ownership of cattle shipped
from Wendover have been rampant
all over western Tooele county sinco
the latter part of last spring.
TO MAKE BUSINESS
LOGAN, Sept. 2. The Agricultural
college of Utah has established a
course which has never before been
given In an educational Institution in
America It is a courso in Industrial
Tts evident groat utility causes Bur
pri60 that It has never before been
thought of. Its establishment is duo
to a coincidence In n sense. Tw,o Har- j
vard men of the Agricultural college
faculty, Dr. Thomas and Professor
Porter, one an expert on economics,
the other a man trained in chemistry,
saw the great unoccupied field In their
special linos In applying tho facts at
their disposal to the business of the
state. Ono realized that there was a
need for more expert business man
agement, the other that wo needed
men trained In industrial chemistry
and physics. Thoy saw that much of
the economics and sclenco we aro
teaching was theoretical and to that
extent useless Thpy proposed to
vitalize tholr subjects by applying
them to Utah's industries. Further,
they combined their subjects.
"We aro going to take out boys,"
said Dr, Thomas, "right Into the banks
nnd make thorn work, and Into the
sugnr factories, cemont factories, lum

other great commercial concerns. Wo

"Heretofore It has been difficult to
get the business manager of a sugar
factory or a cement plant to see the
point of view ot the scientific special

been friction between the two.
"As a result also, many of Utah's
