H i The D. & R. G. Railway has 737 miles of main track. On all its
M ' lines in Utah it is assessed $9,471,G09. The state board of cquiliza-
Hj tion says that is $33,329 per mile. Figure it out for yourself. A
M j twelvc-year-okl boy in the Sub-High school says it is within a few

Hi HOW TO GET LOWER ' TAXES.
H H the people of Utah want a square deal on taxes, it will be nec-
M essary to elect some one other than Spry for G-overnor, for he ap
H points the state equalization board, and the board he appoints sees
1 through a corporation glass.
M . The Equalization board consists of two Democrats and two Re-
H publicans, but always men who see things the way the big corpora-
H tidns sec them.
H! Saturday the Board, over the signature of its president, gave out
' ? falsii and misleading statement, the figures of which were furnished
H ' y the railroad tax agents. The statement was prepared and held
H back until the Saturday before election, and, while addressed to the
H people, a copy was sent to the Deseret News before this paper received
H "s own letter. That tells the whole story.
Hj j Thc men who prepared the statement prepared it for the purpose
K of fooling the people. Therefore, this paper will continue to fight for
H 1 equal taxation after the election, until the whole rotten method of tax-
i ation in Utah is exposed and corrected.
H This paper will demand that the Equalization board in the fu-

FOR YOU, MR. VOTER!
If you are loaded down with this world's goods, there may be an
excuse for voting against Roosevelt, that is if you are so selfish as to
look solely to your own comfort and to have no thought of the world
outside your own fireside; even then you must be unmindful of tho
future, which may bring a tremendous upheaval, reaching even to
the door of the place you call home. But if you are the ordinary
man and the wife of the ordinary man. whose outlook is none too
bright because of the uncertainty of employment, and of health and
opportunity, and you vote against Roosevelt, then you commit an
act of self-reproachment that we cannot understand.
Have you read the Progressive platform, or did you read Theo
dore Roosevelt's speech delivered at Madison Square Garden, New
York, on last Wednesday evening? if you have failed to do so, let
us call your attention to the words uttered on that occasion by Roose
velt, which drew from his vast audience tremendous applause.
"There must be bread for all who work, there must be a time for
play when men and women are young. When they grow old there
must be a certainty of life under conditions free from haunting ter
rors of utter poverty.
"We arc for liberty, but we are for the liberty of the oppressed
and not for the liberty of the oppressor to oppress the weak and to
bind burdens on the shoulders of the heavy laden. We must not per
mitHhe brutal selfishness of arrogance and the brutal selfishness of
envy each to run unchecked its evil course. The doctrine we preach
reaches back to the Golden Rule and the Sermon on tho Mount. We
decline to be bound by the empty little cut and dried formulae of by
"We propose to shackle greedy cunning as we shackle bnitc
" We care for deeds and not for words.
"We will not consent to make the constitution a fetish for the
protection of fossilized wrong.
"We arc striving to meet the needs of all men and to meet them
in such fashion that all alike shall feel bound together in a bond of

obility, there is not a man outside the pale of millionaires, who should

The old parties promise nothing but the worn-out formulae that

While Germany and England are going ahead in providing for the
care of the old, the infirm and the unfortunate, providing old-age
pension and non-employment insurance and insurance against acci
dent, we, the people of America, have been so engrossed in consider
ing non-essential and antedeluvian issues, as not to give a thought to
the things that should be uppermost in our lives. We allow the old
party politicians to divide us op the question of tweedledee and
tweedledum, while the rich grow richer and the poor become poorer
and life holds less of hope for the average family, and after each
election wonder why we remain in the same old rut.
Is it not about time that we devote some thought to the welfare
of the great majority of the people and less to the shallow sentiment
of old-party politics? Is it not about time to demand that America
be as much concerned over the fate of the average man as Germany
and England are in their respective spheres of influence? Is it not
about time that you, Mr. Voter, voted for yourself and your family?
Read those words of hope that Roosevelt offers you and yours!

Plentiful in Wash

governorship, the point of interest in
tomorrow's election is the office of
state superintendent of public instruc
tion, for which three women and one
man are candidates, with one of the
women practically sure of election.
The Republican, Democratic and
Socialist parties nominated women
for tho office and the Progressive par
ty tried to find an available female
candidate and, failing, nominated n

Joseph Preston ol Wulla Walla, has
made a skillful campaign and her
election Is thought to be assurde.
Tho Progressive state ticket is han
dicapped by having no woman on ft.

ON KILBANE GO
New York, Nov. -1. Grasping John
ny Dundee carefully and securely with
his right mitt and dangling a grip in
his left paw, Scotty Montelth hopped
a trailer at New Orleans recently.
Walkin? up deliberately to the con
ductor, Scotty suoke thusly:
"Don't stop until we hit Los Ango
Iqs." The conductor shivered, as even a
brave man may shiver, and Ingratiate
"I gotpha, Steve."
Thus started the first lap of the
journey that Scotty hopes will land
his charge the fenthcrweight cham
pionship of the world.
Down In thQ Jungles of fair Los An
geles Scotty knows he will face John
ny Kllbane, who holds in his posses
sion tho featherweight crown,
Dundee met Kllbane here a few
months ago and came out pretty good,
thank you. It was only a 10-round
bout, but ever since Dundee has been
crying for that featherweight crown.1
Ho importuned Kilbano to agree to a
battle for the title, but the holder
'Pooh! pooh! Now be a good boy
and don't bother me."
The "don't bother me" stuff did not
worry John, but that "Pooh! pooh'"
chatter got him To get even for that
insult Dundee is going to follow Kll
bane around the mnln streets of Los
Angeles and demand reparation.
There is a strong possibility that
Dundee may get a caance to fight
Kllbane for the championship. On the
other hand, he may have to tacklo
some other good bo to show the west
ern fans that he is the real goods.
Out there they want to be shown be
fore they will be separated from real
Nevertheless and notwithstanding,
Dundee Is going to try.
Eddie McGoorty has a sorrow that
is not silent and It hurts by gum. It
hurts. Eddie was engaged to travel
through tho middle west displaying his
Apollo form and how to slip one over,
lie was only to got $1,000 a week,
which to Edward is much moneys.
Everything was lovely until the day
previous to his first appearance.
"There's nothing doing on that fight
ing stuff and it's all off," was tho
message which forced McGoorty to
take to bed.
Nightly he moans of tho terrible
catastrophe, and it locks to be a se
rious case. In tho next room re
clines the form of Morty Forklns, Mc
Goorty's manager. He has been un
conscious since the shock.
Young Sammy Smith wants to know
what the matter la. Are all the fight
promoters dead or just sleeping? It
seems that Samuel has blossomed In-
to the middleweight division and in
his three battles In that class came
out like the Red Sox.
'"Is it because I knocked out Joe
West that the mlddleweights fear me?
Yes?" demands Sam.
BERT FOULGER SAYS
Albert B. Foulger, one of the de
partment managers at Wrights SUM,
says Ralney's African Hunt Pictures,
which are to pe seen at the Orpheum
tonight, aro the most remarkable
moving pictures ever made
"During ray last visit to New York."
says Mr. Foulger. "I saw the African
Hunt pictures advertised. As I had
spent 6omo time in tho Interior of
Africa, I decided to see them It was
just like being in tho interior of the
African Jungle. The pictures these
people show of tho wild animals of
the jungle nre truly marvelous. Oae
picture in particular which remains
fresh in my memory is one taken at
the drinking place. Here tho cleverly
concealed machine photographed the
animals as thoy come for water. One
old giraffe hears tho 'click' of the
moving picture machine, and n look
of alarm Is clearly shown as he
cranes his long neck and loolts for
the cause of tho noise."
The pictures are to bo seen In the
Orpheum tonight. (Advertisement)
