r I i WATER FOR OUR CITY
I I i Some one writing to a Salt Lake paper consumes much space
I I in attempting to prove that Ogden in voting to build a now conduit
I to Cold Water canyon will make a mistake because Ogden City
I I possesses no water with which to supply the new conduit
Why has the author of such a statement waited until after Og
I den has purchased its water system at great expense to make known
1 1 this startling information
I A citys right to water surpasses that of all other users of water
i for other than drinking and culinary purposes If Ogden has not
the water with which to fill the proposed conduit then the time has
arrived when the city must obtain that water We believe that all
I I 1 elements in this community will concede that much The city au
thorities declare they have the water and have entered into arrange
ments for the obtaining of even a larger supply But if the city
i has not an ample flow of pure water is it not even moreimperative
than represented that the bonds for a better water supply be voted on
1 Tuesday next
The improvements to Ogdens water system are essential to the
future of a city which gives promise of an exceptional growth and
I which is so situated as to be able to boast of having at its very door
I streams of the purest water than ever welled from mountain springs
to quench the thirst of a people
The council made up of Democrats and Republicans and the
I Mayor are a unit on the necessity of Ogden making the proposed im
provements There is no division of sentiment and that of itself
I should inspire confidence in the judgment of the city administration
The city officials in their address to the voters have stated
I specifically that part of the money to be raised by the bond issue
is to be devoted to placing a dam in Cold Water canyon to intercept
the seepage flow which is known to be considerable and which will
I add materially to the water supply That and other plans have
been devised for meeting the requirements for a larger source of
supply
It is rather late in the day and somewhat impertinent for these
j Salt Lake paper through trumpedup correspondence to be making
an attack on these proposed improvements in Ogden
1 FRONTIER DAYS
f The readers of the Standard have been furnished with graphic
descriptions of the Frontier Day celebration in Cheyenne arranged
r in a good many of its details for the delight and pleasure of Theo
rj dore Roosevelt Some of our readers no doubt have regretted their
J inability to witness tho wild west exhibition and have envied the
I
I former President favored as ho was with a pageantry of pioneer
western life which is fast passing
Well we all are to be more fortunate than had been hoped for
The Grand exhibition which Cheyenne presented to admiring thou
sands has been placed on a train of sixtysix cars and on Septem
ber 14 will arrive in Ogden
This city on the 14th and 15th of this month is to see the
cowboy at his best And 60 of the stalwart Sioux Indians descend
ants of the tribe which defeated Ouster on the Little Big Horn are
to be in the Mammoth show
Perhaps this is the last time the people of this section will see
an aggregation so typical of tho pioneer days and frontier life It
will bo a memorable event As the veil is drawn on this vivid pic
I I ture of the primitive memory will be left to treasure the scene as
I marking the passing of the most romantic and picturesque in Ameri
I can history
t I ANOTHER REASON FOR HIGH COST OF LIVING
I
I
i1 f We have heard many theories advanced for the present high I
I
cost of living but the latest and most plausible cause is that ad
vanced by Professor Benjamin Clark Marsh I who states that the
I i i remarkable increase in the population of the big cities of the coun I
I try shown by the thirteenth census is one of the leading causes of
I the prevailing high cost of living
We will have to stop land speculation and eliminate the cost
11 i oof transit said Mr Marsh II if we wish to reduce the high cost of
living for they are two fundamental matters which make life ex
Iit pensive for urban dwellers
While the census returns show that Detroit is the leader in
1 the rapid growth of the big cities in this country several of tho
boroughs in New York have exceeded Detroit Tho Bronx for in
I stance has increased its population nt arty twice as rapidly as De
I troit
I j 1 This phenomenal jump has increased living because we have
ill I been concentrated in cities particularly large cities persons who
I I could and should provide for themselves on a farm
I i Then again our centers of production are enormous dis
J tances from our centers of consumption We have in New York
II City roughly speaking oneeighteenth of the total population of the
II country The raw material for the goods wo produce is shipped here
G from all parts of tho country and then shipped back again Some
ii I body pays the freight and iti is the consumer in the long run who is
J I made to pay the expense of shipping goods two ways
I 1 Another point is that we are housing our poor uneconomical
i Land for tenement dwelling houses in certain parts of New York is
I
I worth from 13 a square foot upwards If we shoulld distribute fac
t tories and population so that toilers could walk to their work New
York could cut out 10000000 a year in car fares and still provide
i better housing than is provided today J
1 I CORPORATION LAWYER FOR SENATOR
I I I
George Sutherland cold clammy and crusty corporation lawyer
and rich mans buffer is a candidate for reelection to the United
States senate On his record he should be consigned to eternal per
dition He has voted for everything demanded by the predatory in
I terests and opposed every measure proposed for the benefit of the
common people He voted against the fellow servant act which aimed
to make every trade carry its risk and care for its injured T scat
i bill was advocated by Union labor and supported by the better
statesmen of the nation including Theodore Roosovelt but Suther
I i land of Utah in effect said
I No I will do nothing for tho
laboring man He deserves no
proteotion If ho is maimed why just discard him you
as you would a
piece of old machinery The hulks
of
humanity are no more to m o
than the hulks of the sea I and mine arewell fad well groomed

why should I worry over the misfortunes of those who are born in
a class fated to be misfortunate Vote for the fellow servant bill
me Never I believe in caste The laboring man should be held
down and humbled Given too many legislative favors he will deem
himself entitled to the privileges of a gentleman of my class grow
independent and audaciously demand to know why I should ask so
much of and return so little to society I would sacrifice my dignity
and sense of superiority were I to condescend to listen to these clam
orings for a fellow servant act
When a clerk of the interior department following the Balling
er investigation saw that important evidence against Ballinger was
being concealed and that by further silence he would become a
party to the crime of concealment and thereupon volunteered to go
on the witness stand before the committee of investigation Senator
Sutherland with turpitude astounding undertook to quesion the
propriety of a government employe serving his conscience and aiding
the side of justice in opposition to what he deemed reprehensible tricky
and contemptible in a superior Sutherland browbeating the clerk
demanded to know why he dared to appear against Mr Ballinger
Think of a United States senator with sense of right and wrong so
blunted that he should question the right of any ono to tell the
whole truth before a committee of which he was a member presum
ably sitting as a judge avowedly free from prejudice openmindedly
weighing the testimony as presented
A person of that stamp has no conscience no heart no soul so
essential to manhood He is simply an automaton obeying tho guide
wires that cause him to flop first this way and then that
CARLOADS OF FRUIT
Tho Harriman officials found the demand for fruit cars so far
beyond their expectations that during the first of this week they
were forced 10 employ six large transfer gangs in the Ogden yards
emptying westbound refrigerator cars of their merchandise in order
to make the cars serviceable at this point
Long strings of refrigerators were turned over to the fruit men
at heavy expense to the railroads This prompt response to the needs
of the fruit growers is praiseworthy
The fruit industry in northern Utah has been growing so rapidly
that both railroad and box companies have been taken by surprise
A rush order for fifteen carloads of box material was made necessary
two weeks ago and still the supply of boxes is not equal to the de
mand
It is estimated that 400 to 500 carloads of peaches will be ship
ped from this district before the end of the season and a wellin
formed horticulturist predicts that with the new orchards coming
into bearing 1600 carloads in a season will be sent east from here
within three years
PROSPERITY FOR TEXAS
W Fenstermaker a business man of San Antonio Texas who
is registered at one of the local hotels says the South is beginning
to attract a groat immigration and states like Texas with vast acre
I s uncultivated are experiencing a prosperity which promises to
continue until every acre of arable land is made to help support a
vast population f
Texas is an empire in Itself and of late the state has been rapid

OUR ROADS AND GOO ROADS
alcate
Joseph Scowcroft has become an atf > cate of good roads since
his tour of Europe in an automobile 4 says he encountered less
poor roadway in his 9200 miles of auto abroad than there is poor
road to be found between Ogden and St Lake He drove from
southern Italy through the countries oiiiddle and western Europe
and everywhere found the military roa which are the great public
highways kept in better condition th some of the streets of our

creased still more largely and the dlv

Similar results followed tho oanall V i

of 1830 Tho river traffic which
amounted to only 16GOOO tons In that
year began to grow and has kept on I
growing being 1273000 tons In 1902ft
There are two railroads between
Frankfort and Mayonce one on each
eldo of tho river What happened to
them Did their business show a se
rious falling ott7 Or wore they forced
Into the hands of a receiver On this
contrary their traffic which was 911
000 tons In 1S8G also began to grow
and by 1902 had reached 1909000
tons or more than double what Itryras 1

The mero statement of the In
