H A PARALLEL FOUND IN HISTORY.
HI Some oue witli a copy of Woodrow Wilson's "History of the
H American People" has been' sufficientlly inconsiderate of the presi-
M dent-elect's sensitive nature to quote from that history the following,
H under the heading, "History's Repetitions":
1 "The new party of opposition, however, did not porfect Its
H organization or "draw its strength effectively together soon
H enough to win the presidential election. ... A remnant.
M of the Whig party was still in the field. . . . The Demo-
B crats, keeping still a virtually unbroken organization in the
H face of foes divided, elected their candidates, . . . out
iH the pqpular vote for tliolr candidates had fallen short of that
B cast for their opponents, and there was In the success of the
H Democrats, it was suspected, nothing but a temporary tn-
H Not content to simply quote from Mr. Wilson, the writer says :
H "Wilson wrote of a campaign of half a century ago. We have
H recently had an election. The parallel is exact."
H SALT LAKE'S OFFENSIVE TACTICS.
H We are constantly urged to be a gentle neighbor and do noth-
H fng offensive to Salt Lake. Jvvery time Salt Lake throws a bunch
of decayed vegetables, we are' told to look upon the offering as a
H sweet-scented bouquet. When Salt Lake lifts a foot, we are advised
H-Jsiuit the city of brine is simply endeavoring to lift or exalt us. When
H' Pall Lake shoves a strong arm in our direction and lauds on our
Hr solar plexus, we are informed that the blow is but a friendly .-jolt
H calculated to demonstrate to others that we can take a good punch
H without wincing.
H Bui does it not grow monotonous, this constant opposition that
H Ogden, in all its larger undertakings, meets with in Salt Lake? Go
H baek fifteen years to the time the Hearst papers were establishing
H a bicycle route across the continent, and to the days before the
H Ogdcn-Luein cut-off. and you will find that same persistent knoek
Hl ing of Ogden which lately has been manifested in the selecting of
H the trans-continental automobile route through the state of Utah.
H We arc disposed to display the Christian .spirit which requires
Hivune to turn the other cheek, but to be both slapped and spit on is
H too much for any community not entirely disposed to be obsequious.
H GREAT SERVICE BEING PERFORMED BY OGDEN WOMEN.
H The contributors to the "Woman's Department"' of the Stan-
H dard convince us that more than one woman in Ogden has been doing
H her full part to make both ends meet in the economy of the home.
H Back of these detailed stories of how families of five and six
H, manage to live on a revenue of $75 to $S0 a month and save a dolltfr
H or two for a day of misfortune, there is disclosed a serious struggle
H that is troubling not half a dozen or a score of families, but a big
Hk part of this community.
H In today's story of home-making for that is what economy in
H the home means one woman tells how she saves in coal. The fuel
H is made to do its duty without loss. One fire in summer is made to
HL serve for the day's work and in winter the summer stove is moved
Hl into the house to warm the r6oms as well as' do service in preparing!
H the meals. The woman puts up "her own pickles and catsup. An
H yoUier woman -economizes on meat by buying the cheaper, yet wholc
M If some, meats such as a shank, for meat balls.
y There is not a family in poor or moderate circumstances in Og-
( tie n that can afford to miss reading the "Woman's Department" of
the Standard. It is a story that, on close study, conveys a world of
hi meaning to one who can read in the frugal efforts of the writers
HI the hopes and aspirations of the very best women of this city the
H wives and mothers that are doing their full part in caring for their
H' children and encouraging the head of the households to labor on
j- to keep out of debt and even accumulate a few dollars for an cmer
i Some excellent suggestions are being offered by the women who
j work with unflagging will and put thought into their work.
As waste begets want, the contributors to the Standard's de-
jj partment are teaching a lesson in how to avoid being wasteful and,
J! consequently, how to escape poverty. That is a mission as noble as
3 the preaching of the gospel, as it offers food to the body as well as
H comfort to the soul.
HI- THE STANDARD APPRECIATED.
The following letter from the Progressive National committee
I is a tribute to the Standard :
HI (t "New YorkfNov. 14, 1012.
I "The Evening Standard, Ogden, Utah; My dear Sir: Your
letter of Nov. 9th to Senator Dixon has reached us in tlfe temporary
absence of the Senator, who is endeavoring for the first time since
the opening of the campaign last March to obtain some very much
needed rest. I shall be glad to call it to his attention on his return
to New York next week.
X "The matters to which you call attention are of striking signifi

party, are endeavoring to show that, because they -printed many
columns about us during the campaign, they did give publicity to
the Progressive cause, and that, therefore, Col. Roosevelt's statement
.that the channels of publicity were choked is not true.
"Your experience in Ogden is practically repeated in all other
places where wo had such support as THE EVENING STANDARD
gavo us. Analysis of the vote shows that in places wherp we were
unable to secure publicity, our vote was the smallest. In New York
State, for instance, many of the up-state newspapers, controlled
cither by federal office-holders or by those in direct relation to either
the Republican or Democratic rings, consistently made no mention of
the Progressive campaign, and even refused to print Col. Roosevelt's
"1 am going to take the liberty of using the facts reported in
your letter in the next issue of the PROGRESSIVE BULLETIN.
Yours verv trul v. (sicrned)
0. K. DAVIS, Secretary National Committee."
The Progressive Bulletin will contain an editorial from the Stan
dard, reviewing the campaign and analyzing the presidential vote.
The Standard during the campaign was acknowledged to be one of
the foremost papers advocating the Progressive cause, and the rec
ognition that has been accorded it through the National committee
is a source of pardonable pride.

with good reason.
