Ht i'I Hon. Richard Kerens
H i TTON. RICHARD KERENS, who died in Phila
H,, ct( delphia on Monday last was a most superior
j man. He was not a statesman in the usual ac-
H i ccptance of that term, but rather one of those
H ! men of affairs that keep the world moving. A
H natural captain of industry one of those men to
B clear the way on the frontier of progress.
K j He was, too, a natural political organizer and
Hi j leader a general in a political campaign.
H But he had another side. He was greater in
H' . heart than in brain and drew the affections of
H I men to him as naturally as the sunbeams make
H ' the flowers open and bloom altogether a most
H' loveablo man.
I' Willis S. McCornick
A BRIGHT, genial, sunny-faced boy and pre-
carious in his studies.
Hj While yet in school ho heard the war-call
H, that his country needed its sons, and it would
H be good if all the boys of the land could read
Ht the letter he wrote his father, explaining why he
H felt it his duty to abandon the school to answer
H that call, for it would give them a thrill of real
B Americanism, from a heart throbbing with real
H ! red American blood.
l i He made a brave record in the war, then
H .' completed his education; then for practical train-
B u ing in the profession he had chosen, buried him-
'" 1 self three years in a Siberian mine.
V But in those three years ho mastered the
m I difficult language spoken there.
H a Returning homo he engaged in business and
K i the world seemed filled with the sunshine of hope
$ a before him.
m But when his skies seemed brightest, an in-
H g sidious disease stole upon him which neither the
m ' skill of science nor the affection of those who
M ,j loved him could arrest. "
M And now ho is gone. God pity those 'who so
M ioved him, God rest the tired soul that has fled.
M j '"pHERE is not a bit of common sense in say
M I ing: "A railroad is big and strong and can
m ; U stand any extra expense exacted from it." Rail-
f I roads have not a cent except what is paid them
i by people who travel or send freight on them.
U Whatever their expenses the people pay them.
I I ARRANZA promised to put down Villa.
1 1 From last accounts Villa was growing stronger
H I and stronger. It must not be forgotten that the
H I reason Carranza obtained his present position
H h was solely through the victories Villa won for

H pect that a private understanding was reached

HF When he claims that the genius, the pro
He I gress, the patriotism and the broad humanity of
Im ji the nation find their only embodiment in the

AUTHOR AUERBACH AND THE TALE
By T. G.
IT is doubtful if the eastern magazines will ever
forgive Ambroso McKay, George Hale, Ed Cal
lister and Bud Whitney for corraling the literary
output of Herbert S. Auerbach, "who Iras for a
long time, been a contributor to publications
throughout the country." Inadvertently, we have
missed most of these articles, but attribute the
oversight to the fact that occasionally, through
trouble in the mail, we have not received our cop-
ies of the Tageblatt and Vorwarts.
A prophet in his own country has a tough
time gaining recognition. We are given to under
stand that Mr. Auerbach has for years spent the
greater part of his spare time in literary work, his
most recent production being 'The Shopping
Center, "and it is also, said that he collaborated in
"The Romance of the Lace Counter." But his
most pretentious offering for public consumption
has been the tale of No-Ni-Shee, sweet child of
his fancy, who was discovered in a cave in the
Cottonwoods, and dragged from thero past the
Cardiff and down the steps of Big Cottonwood,
along Broadway to the shores' of the inland sea.
Following her reign during the coming festival
it is easy to suppose that his next sketch will bo
in the nature of an autobiography, or who put
the sale in saline.
Author Auerbach does not write from selfish
motives, and as an evidence of his magnanimity
he announces at the head of each article in which
No-Ni-Shee is exploited that the money received
by him for the Indian Btorles will be donated to
the fund of the Salt Princess festival. If this be
true it is difficult to see why any other contribu
tions should bo necessary, for if the four daily
papers are paying space rates for all of the stuff
they have printed since they began to impose on
their readers with this, it will be more than suffi
cient to meet general expenses and provide for
Author Auerbach is to be commended rather
than blamed for using the amount of space he
has, if the papers will fall for it, and being a
widely known author as he is probably explains
why nothing is cut and why every delicate
phrase remains intact and each flash of subtle
wit is printed as it originated. This, for instance
from last Sunday's papers:
In the year when the wolves were hung
ry and bold and did venture into the very
' village streets to howl and snap their jaws,
there was camped on the salt strewn edge
of the sacred blue waters, a wise and
Skookum chief by name Heap-Like-Ko-Lone,
son of Smell-Sweet-Like-Skunk. He, in turn,
did have a son who was afflicted with epi
leptic fits and whose given name was
Chief Heap-Like-Ko-Lone had brought
his afflicted son Cramp-Like-Water-Melon
from the lodge of the mighty Bow-Nee
chiefs many suns to the East as the crow
flies, that he might take a bath in the
famed tear-drenched waters of the Salt
Tradition does relate how the treatment
of the salt water baths did entirely cure
-the young chief of his cramp-like-watermelon,
and in commemoration of this mir
acle, Chief Heap-Like-Ko-Lone did erect a
large perfume factory upon the site where
they had camped and thereafter for many
circles of moons, did the Indians extract
and preserve strange and wonderful smell
There was considerable interest in the begin
ning of the story of the finding of the prehistoric
souvenirs' in the fastnesses of the Wasatch, and
appearing in four papers of repute, few but the

initiated doubted the existence of the newly dis
covered cavern. Then when the denouement
came, scientists especially interested in such
things raved, and others wondered why four of the
big daily newspapers would become parties to the
imposition. Since, the local public has been re
galed each day with the guff, and those of the
general public of the state who can get away are
preparing to come to the bunk baited for the poor
boobs. , J
And this is the reason the daily papers stand vl
for it. There isn't one of them with intestines
enough, in view of the possible loss of future ad-
vertlsing, to stand out and tell some of our lead
ing authors and others where to head in. As one
manager said: "I could be arrested for what I
think of that stuff, but I am powerless to do any
thing." A fine confession from the manager of
a powerful newspaper. Oh, for the days of real
journalism, when the business and editorial de
partments were separate and distinct. r
In the meantime, Utah, has added to the world
of letters, a star of the first magnitude, albeit his
light has heretofore been hidden under a bushel "" ,

CHARLES R. MABEY - j
A gifted speaker and a man of recognized
business, political and military success, Charles -;
R. Mabey of Bountiful, Republican candidate for ,
congress, ns one of those well endowed men
whose natural ability has gained for them more
than statewide recognition.
He comes from fighting ancestry whoso Repub
licanism has been undeviatiug throughout the
history of the United States. Mr. Mabey's fore-
fathers have fought in every war in which the
United States has been engaged and trace their
military prowess back to the time of King Ed
ward of England in 825. -"
Whatever success has come to Charles Mabey
has come through a reputation for an upright .
character and through his own natural ability. -His
career has been like that of many of the big
men of the day, beginning on a farm with a 4"
clean mind and healthy body and later attaining
the highest gifts and recognition that could be
offered by his local community.
Mr. Mabey was born in Bountiful, Utah, in Oc- '
tober, 1877. As a boy on the farm ho was as
mugh of a student and as Interested in public &
affairs as he later became in his university life. " 1
Passing through the public schools, including f
the University, he went to tho University of Chi
cago for special studies in political science.
After graduating there he returned to Utah and
taught school for four years. It was while teach
ing school that he organized a company of the
National Guard in Bountiful. At the outbreak of
the Spanish-American war he resigned his com-"
mission in the guard and enlisted in Battery A.
In the Philippines Charles Mabey took part in
twenty-two battles and skirmishes and came back
to Utah a sergeant in the bateries. While in
the Philippines he started in conjunction with
Ike Russel, the first newspaper published in Eng
lish in the islands, and for a signal display of
bravery he was especially commended by Major
Returning from the war, Mr. Mabey taught
school for one year and then went to Europe
where he visited Russia, Austria, Denmark, Italy,
France, Switzerland, Germany and England. In
these countries he made a special study of tn
economic conditions of the people, visiting the
coal mines of Germany, Magdeburg the center of
Europe, the copper mines of Saxony, the iron
manufactories of Kemnitz and the porcelain fac
tories of Meissen. In England and Germany ho
hevoted considerable time to a careful study of
the laws and institutions of the country. ,
In 190G he returned to Bountiful and entered
upon a career of business and public life. In the t
