H EXAMINER SAYS BLACKMAILING PAYS.
B We do not believe it. Just because Leroy Armstrong is the only
H newspaper man in Utah who has made a success of blackmail and at
H the some time has kept out of jail is not a sure sign that blackmail'
H The Utah law says that a blackmailer is one "who extorts money
fl or property from another without his consent, induced by a wrong-
B ful use of force or fear."
B. II. Roberts, 0. W. Powers and J. H. Moylc, three of the
H briglitest and brainiest men in Utah, stated openly that the Intcr-
H Mountain Republican had blackmailed the liquor interests out of
H sums of money variously stated at, from $10,000 to $40,000 at a time.
H That is not all. The liquor interests never denied the story and sev-
H eral liquor dealers have admitted that the price was paid. The facts J
H arc as folows :
H Leroy Armstrong was editor-in-chief and high mogul of the
H Inter-Mountain Republican, now known as the Herald-Republican.
H The paper was known to be hard up for money. It was losing
H heavily when, without warning, on the front page of the Republican
H appeared a three column article in red ink calling on the people to
H make Utah a prohibition state. Day after day. in big type, the paper
H boosted prohibition until one day it stopped prohibition, and then,
H gradually, the Inter-Mountain Republican again became a whiskey-
H soaked sheet.
H B. II. Roberts first told the sequel that the liquor interests not
H only bought the paper's prohibition policy, but that the prohibition
H song was adopted for the express purpose of holding up and black-
H mailing the liquor interests.
H The present editor of the Ogden Examiner, Leroy Armstrong,
H is the same editor who ran the blackmailing Inter-Mountain Repub-
H lican. He is the same man who had an editorial in his paper yester-
H day saying, "Blackmailing Pays." Tt may pay Leroy Armstrong,
who has not a spark of manhood in his whole make up; it may
H pay a man who is so lost to honor that he thinks there is no wrong
H in burglary or blackmailing. But Mr. Armstrong will find his black-
Hl mailing tactics will not work in Ogden. Let us see, wiry did this
H same Armstrong leave the State of Indiana? "Will Armstrong an-
H swer? That was a nasty record the Salt Lake Tribune reproduced
H from Indiana. This same Armstrong started in to abuse the Tribune
Hl owner but he shut up like a clam when the Tribune published Ilia
H record. This same bird-of-passage comes to Ogden. and, because his
H competitor favors a good thing for Ogden, he denounces his eompeti-
H By the way, did Armstrong ever hear of the "Willard canyon
M deal? There are heavy stockholders in the Examiner who were in ,
H that deal, involving the rights of the city. We would deem it a great
1 favor, if Armstrong, through the Examiner, would explain in what
j particular the "Willard canyon deal was, a highly commendable
1 transaction while the South Fork appropriation was a steal.
H WHAT THE STANDARD COULD DO.
H From Southern Utah conies' greetings to the Standard. C. N.
1 Lund, editor of the Call, a bright aud newsy weekly, writes us from
1 Salina, Sevier county, as follows:
H "I had hoped -to see in your paper a little note about Salina,
M but as it has not appeared, I take the liberty of writing you.
M Salina went for Roosevelt by a majority of 227 over Taft. and
M that without organization here. So you see we Progressives' here
M have reason for feeling proud. We shall organize now and keep
M up the good work.
H "Let me tell you that if the Ogden Standard had been in ev-
B ery home in Utah for sixty days prior to the election, rosults
H , would have been different. I have read your paper everv day
and d0 a0 now &nd can say without flattering you that it is an
j able and interesting cframplon of the grent cause of Progres-
M sivism and efforts should be made to circulate the paper in every
1 town in Utah so that the people may be Instructed before the
j next campaign comes on. YourG very truly,
H "C X. LUND."
H "We appreciate ilje. compliment. As a daily, no doubt the Stan-
H dard filled its mission in this part of Utah; as a weekly, the Call"
H served equally as important a mission in Salina, for which the editor
H is entitled to high praise. Our regret is that there are not more fear-
M less newspaper men of the courage and ability of Mr, Lund in the
M State of Utah.
H Te Standard with a chain of weeklies made up of papers of the
M intrinsic worth of the Call, could turn Utah from the path of po-
M Jitical turpitude in one election. The people of Utah are not slaves
H tp any party, nor worshipers of a party fetish, as was amply
H proved when nearly two-thirds of the voters of the state refused to
1 commend the candidates of the Republican party in the last cam-
H paign. The citizens of this state, once they are full v informed on the
m merits of the Progressive cause, will do as they have done in Og-
m den and in Salina, and elsewhere in the nation.

PREFERS TO ACT STUPID.
The Salt Lake Tribune insists on assuming an attitude of stu
pidity rather than confess that the election proves the Progressive
.contention that Roosevelt was robbed at the Chicago convention.
The Tribune says:
"The Boston Globe argues (nnd the Ogden Standard quotes
approlngly) that because Colonel Roosevelt got more votes than
President Taft did In certain oi the stales whose delegates were
contested In the national Republican convention, and their
delegations given to Taft, therefore Roosevelt was cheated
out of the Republican nomination. A sophistical fallacy;
for It would prove that any candidate who carries a state, ought
to have the vote of that state, whether the delegation was for
him or not. As applied to a stnto it would prove that Governor
Spry ought to have had the delegations from all the counties
which he carried at the election, aud that ho was cheated in the
convention In not receiving the votes of the delegates from those
counties 'Such arguments as that will not bear examination."
There is no parallel whatever m the hypothetical case presented
by the Tribune. Had the opponent of Governor Spry in the con
vention claimed fraud, such as was perpetrated at Chicago, and had
that opponent appealed to the voters of the state to sustain him in
his accusations, and had the opponent, running as an indepeudent
candidate obtained in nearly every comity in Utah more votes than
Spry by 50 per cent, then any one holding to the contention that
Spry had not resorted to fraud would be classed as mentally dull or,
worse still, blindly partisan. The test of perfcrence as between
Roosevelt and Taft was first made evident in the popular primaries
before the convention and finally in the election itself, and he who
still holds to the theory that Taft came honestly by his nomination
at the national convention is too partisan to allow himself to honestly
weigh the merits of the case or he is intentionally attempting to deceive
SHOULD BE AN INVESTIGATION.
As an echo of the last campaign, the following from the Logan
Journal meets with our entire approval :
Certain charges made during the late campaign by the Dem
ocratic and Dull Moose parties of tho state, directed against sev
eral branches of the Republican state administration, were not
made for mere political effect, oi to create unfounded suspicion,
but were placed before the people as actual statements of fact,
and as such, should receive the attention of the state legis
lature. The charge was made, and amply proven by facts and figures
produced, that the railways of Utah are highly faored In the
matter of taxation as compared with surrounding states, and
this, of course, at tho expense of all individual taxpayeis, who
must make up the deficit between tho tn levied, and that
which should have been collected It should be looked into.
The matter of the disposition of the state funds should' re
ceive Immediate attention If one casts out suspicion entirely,
the fact that such large sums are deposited In various banks
without the state deriving any benefit in the form of Interest
upon such deposits, is, to say the least an evidence of glaring
incapacity that all attomptcd" explanations have failed to explain.
Then thero Is the state land board, charged with having, to
use the mildest term, frittered away the people's patrimony, their
landed estate, in tho most prodigal mannei, upon the "easy
come, easy go," plan, to the great proHt of certain individuals
and with corresponding loss to the state. Chaigos hae been
made, too, as to the handling of the funds derived from this
source The charges are not new, and investigations have been
proposed, but so far the party machine has been able to defeat
them. Such publicity has "been given, though, that the ma
chine will be compelled to submit to an investigation at the next
session of the legislature If strong demand is made, as it should
and most likelj will be
These are matters that have sunived the campaign because
the eils complained of havo not been lemedied, but remain a
public scandal, and one crying aloud for remedy. Let the inves
tigation be made and let it be persistent and thoiough. no mat
ter what maj be uncovered, nor who may stan l discredited.
