H WHAT IS A MORTGAGE?
H Under the above heading tho morning apologist for Governor
H Spry and the miserable slute of Utah's finances, says:
" 'Xow. if a man owning a big farm, and needing monev,
H ahould decide to mortgage his properly should
H suddenly discover that n rich relative had died
H leaving' him money, and that he would hae all he needed
H for the work contemplated, conolnded not to make the loan
H would you say that ti had mortgaged h!R uroportv? Because he
H had thoucht of making a mortsage, would you siy that he had
M The morning sheet, in printing-the above, is simply trying to fool
fl fhe people. The facts are the governor proposed to build a $3,000.-
1 000 eapitol building after the people of Utah had voted it down. On
H February 20th, 131, the Governor signed a bill, which the legislature
H passed at his request (see laws of Utah. 1931. Page 9) which directed
B arid authorized the state board to loan commissioners to sell one mill-
Hj ion dollars worth of bonds and giving the whole slate of Utah as
H security for the same. Jt is true the bonds have not been sold bc-
H cause the construction of the eapitol building has not yet started and
H it would have been a crime to sell the million dollar bonds when the
H governor had three-quarters of a million dollars in cash in the eapitol
M fund 3 in his banks. Why should he sell bonds, when he had so much
M money that he did not know -where to keep it, and had to put it in
H his own bank for safe keeping?
m "What would a big farmer do, after he had received, $750,000 in
H cash from relatives; would he go on mortgaging his farm for more
H money? You say, no. But the state of Utah did. On March 4th, the
H State of Utah, received $793,000 from the llarriman estate on the
H came day the governor approved the bill mortgaging Utah for $300.-
H 000 to erect a building for the university (see page 14, laws of Utah.
H 3911) and on March 9, 1911, the governor signed a bill to mortgage
H Utah for $260,000 more to build good roads. (See page 62, laws of
M Utah, 1911).
H So it will be seen that, if we even adopt the fool argument of
H the Examiner, we find the State of Utah actually mortgaging Utah
H for two more bond issues even after the Examiner admits the state-
Hj had received the three-quarters of a million dollars inheritance tax.
H The governor may well say, "Lord, save me from my fool
H Think of it, people of Utah, even after $798,000 had been received
H and the million dollar eapitol bonds had been voted by the governor
H and his federal bunch ring., the governor deliberately signs two
H more mortgages on Utah, one for $300,000 and one for $260,000, and
Hl the Governor aud his apologist deliberately say, "Yes. we did this
H knowing all the time that we had this $798,000 Harriman estate
H money in our pet banks.
1 "Think of it, the state is paying interest on these two bond is
H buck with money in the bank enough to pay off both bonds and the
H state getting no interest on its money.
1 Yes. good people, the governor's bank loaned out your money.
H The governor's bank got interest nil right, and the people can pay
1 te taxes to pay interest on the .bonds, while the governor's bank
H grows rich.
H CHILD REFUSES TO SALUTE FLAG.'
j Yesterday a school girl, thirteen years old refused to salute the
H flag in the Franklin school in Salt Lake City, and the little one was
B expelled. Tn giving her reason for refusing to give the sign of al-
H legiance, she said : J
H "The flag today stands for a government that (Joes not belong
H to the common people any more. 'It Allows some people to starve
H and others to get all the good things in the world. My step-fathei'
H has told me about Socialism, and I have read a lot about it myself
H I think the Socialist flag is a better one to salute than the American
H The child has received a wrong impression of what the Ameri-
m can flag stands for. The flag is the emblem of a republic in which
H the pebple have themselves to blame if they have not a government1
m suited to their wants. ' Our shortcomings should not be charged
m against the starry emblem of equal rights, nor should any temporary
m advantage which corrupt men may have obtained in the control of
m the government, lessen our love for the flag. If the struggle in this
m country of the masses were -a hopeless conflict in which the common
m people had no means 6f redress, than we all might feel discouraged.
m The authorities in the Salt Lake schools should not have expell-
ed the chiia. They should have told ber the beautiful storv of the
H I THE BULL MOOSE WIN J
.American flag nnd the possibilities under its folds of correcting all
wrongs, they should have taught her to lovo the flng rather than to
have attempted to fcu'ec her to pay mock homage.
But, however that may be, is this not an impressive lesson of the
unrest and discontent in this nation? "When children begin to talk
in a pessimistic vein of the class struggle, the outlook is ominous
What is the causo? Why the powerful interests in control of tho
old parties have refused to see the storm clouds gathering; they have
refused to hear the shriek of the night winds; they have peered out
of their sheltered abodes and have said that all is lovely and there
is no storm brewing. But there is a storm coming for which this
country will be wholly unprepared unless the pleadings of the masses
are given more attention; unless many needed reforms arc brought
about; unless we turn from the old standpat policies of the parly
bosses and reactionary lenders nnd proceed to do something for the
great body of the American people who are demanding more than the
trickery and jugglery of the politics of men such as Aldrich, Crane,
Stevenson, Lorimer, Penrose, Guggenheim in the Republican party,
nnd Taggart, Sullivan, Murphy ; Belmont and Ryan in the Democratic
The way to quiet the unrest is to vote the Progressive ticket,
which has a platform of hope for every struggling man and -woman
in the United States a hope that in its realization will teach evcrj
man, woman nnd child to love the flng with an abiding fondness.
NOW THEY ARE WEEPING.
The Standpat Republicans in Weber county nnd in Utah are on
the run, as is amply shown by the pitiful cry for help which ap
peared in the Examiner this morning. A beggar on n street corner,
soliciting alms, could not have couched his plea in words more ab
jectly humble than does the organ of tho "State-Fund" bunch, in
fjict tho nppoal for help reminds one of a vagrant, a monkey nnd an
"Pleas-n, Mista. giv-e-a my monk oue-a dime-a. You know-a
Tin a poor-a mnu !" -
Those are tho words Of (he mendicant as the monkey-editor
gyrates and the wheezy organ plays in a minor key.
"Come bnck, boys, you know your mother loves you." are the
opening words of the tear-provoking supplication. "Boys, come
Yes, bqys, father's drunk and mother's taking in washing and,
though home is not what it was, you know its home.
(More tears.) I
Jn all seriousness, the appeal is about the most distressful politi
cal whimper that has come to our notice in the last ten years.
We, loo, could cry over a once great party which, nearly hale
a century after the death of Abraham Lincoln, has fallen into the
hands of a pirate crew. We could cry because the great majority
of the men who made the Republican party a source of pride are
dead or have been driven out by the swashbucklers and mercenary
scrubs who have gained possession of the party; we could cry over
the desecrating of the temple by the money changers. But we shall
not ! Instead, we shall buckle on the sword and fight fight for a
principle, for rightoousness, for humanity, and let the dead past
bury its dead.
This is a mighty conflict transcending in importance sentimental
pride in any party, of any man or any group of men; this is a battle
in which mollycoddles, sissy boys at their mothers' apron strings
and cowards have no place; this is a struggle of right against wrong
involving the living not the dead the present not the past.
CALLS "LIAR" AND THROWS MUD.
The Spry Ogden sheet abuses William Ulasmaun iu several
columns of "rot" this morning and says that Glasmann is the Pro
gressive party. What is the matter now? The sheot has said all along
that Colonel Roosevelt is all there is to the Progressive parly, and
now it says Glasmann is the whole party.
Poor old Examiner It must have a very bad case of Glns
niaunitis. We hope it recovers.
Two More Explorers Re
turn From North-Saw
San Francisco, Nov 2. Corroborat- ,
ing in every essential detail the story
of tho discovery of blonde Eskimo
tribes recently give.n the world of
science by Vilhjalmr Steffansson, his
partner In Arctic exploration. Dr. Ru
dolph Martin Anderson of Forest Cltv,
Iowa, arrived here today on the whal
er Belvedere after four and a half
years in the frozen north.
He was accompanied by Professor
E. De Koven Lofflngwell of Pasadena,
Cal.. who has spent three and a half
years making observations In the vi
cinity of tho Flaxman Islands and
surveying and mapping about 150
miles of the coast line.

ritory, on the mainland, and on Prince
Albort sound, acrOBs and to the south
of the Dolphin and Union straits, that
Steffansson first got into touch with
the blonde aborigines," Bald Dr. An-I
dcrson. '-In the spring of 1910 wo'

Barry, Langton bay and Franklin bay,
where we bad wintered. Steffansson
and I parted company, ho leaving
with two Eskimos for the oast while
I pushed on to the Mackenzie delta
for supplies. We met again at Lang
ton bay in the autumn of 1910 nnd he
told me of the queer tribe he had dis
covered. "In December we started out and
were 31 days crossing 2Q0 miles of
the worst strip of laud we ever en
countered. We explored the Httlo
known Horton river and made rec
ords and compazs calculations. This
is one of the largest rivers flowing
Into the Atlantic. This Is a group of
harren grounds, and we put in a sup

river to Dismal lake and to the Cop

was our course, the last 75 miles over
the ice, before we found these strange
people. First we came on a desert
ed settlement and later an inhabited
village with a population of id 6ouls.
"There were none of the iflat nosed
Eskimos of the true Mongolian type
among these people. Their teaturos'
never bore the characteristics of tho
human race. They do not know where
they came from and no one else
"They have no records, no history,

more of the people on tho Smday trip .
They hunt with a crude bow and ni
row and spear fish through holes in

Dr. Anderson brings back hundreds
ot specimens of mammals, birds, fish
and minerals, which will be divided
into classes by the geosraphical stir-
vey at Toronto, Canada, and the
