President Harper shows himself to be

( The tone of tho dispatches from St.

The insistent protest that if war comes,

; the idea that Itussla Is framing

Japan into declaring war, while

j peace. The delay, too, in forwarding
I Russia's answer, is well known to be
exasperating to Japan, and probably Is
B, , taken to exasporato. The many rumors
about what is to be Included in this so
H" much delayed reply make It impossible
. to anticipate what It may actually con
HK tain, and probably the best means to
j Judge of it are by the sidelights as indl
cated. Certainly the dwelling upon con
j ' cessions made to Japan, which tho lat
B t ter had no occasion to ask from Russia,
will not go very far with Japan a6 long
as the vital things, which are demanded
of Russia, continue to be declined.
The Irrigation scheme for the best
utility of the streams of the State,
which a delegation from Utah Is now
In Washington to urge, embraces the
Utah Lake reservoir project, the Bear
River and Lake project, nnd the Straw
berry Valley project. All are good and
feasible. The Government has taken
up the first, pronounced it to be entire
ly feasible and ample for the lands that
lie under It, and awaits only the move
of the land-owners to begin the work.
The Bear Lake project Is no doubt
equally practicable, rind there Is an
abundance of good land that could be
legated from reclamation Works there;
this land being both In Utah and in
Idaho. It is without doubt the project
second in importance In this vicinity,
and it will have to be planned for the
benefit of the two States.
The Strawberry Valley project is also
entirely feasible, and it would add a
substantial stream of water to Irrigate
the lands about Spanish Fork, with ul
timate dlschaYge and seepage into Utah
There Is no mention thnt we have
seen in the general scheme -as. present
ed, for the Sevier River reclamation
project, so urdenlly taken, lipid of by
Major Cavanagh pome six years ago
and more. It wns a meritorious scheme
then, and it Is meritorious now; It
should be Included in any comprehen
sive plnn for the best utilization of the
waters of the State.
But the scheme as presented iscxccl
Icnt, in so far as it covers the ground;
and that it will be enlarged to cover
any points that may have thus far been
omitted, may well be assumed. It Is
good and necessary work that is being
done in this connection, by all concerned.
At a meeting of the Utah Poultry As
sociation Thursday evening at the Com
mercial club Prof. Dryden of the Agri
cultural College told of a recent visit he
made to a poultry district In California.
From one town there, north of San
Francisco, he said, the shipments of
eggs and poultry principally the for
meramounted to over a million dol
lars last year. This was from one town
of some seven or eight thousand popu
lation. It wns the leading Industry of
that section. This showed that what' is
usually considered a very small busi
ness in this State may with proper,
management be made one of respectable
proportions. .
From the best available statistics the
wholo poultry product , of Utah-barely
reaches the figures for that one town.
At the meeting referred to a discus
sion was had as to the advisability of
petitioning the next Legislature of the
State for a grant of money to pay pre
miums on poultry nt the annual winter
show, and it was voted to put candidates
for the Legislature on record as to
whether they favor such a measure be
fore giving them their votes. We hope
the poultrymon may stand pat on this
proposition. At any rato, the industry
languishes, though it is ono capable of,
greater things. One trouble with the
faithful creature of cluck is that she
has no franchise to sell, otherwise she
would have lobbyists willing to do her
bidding; nor has it been discovered how
she may be "cornered" or merged Into
one, and this accounts for some of the
paucity of promoters in one of Amer-,
lea's greatest Industries.
If the hens of this State are produc
ing, under a system of neglect, a million
dollars' worth of eggs and poultry a
year, it is but an Indication of what
might be done if they were given better
care, If the business were prosecuted
with that degree of intelligence and en
ergy that every other successful buel
ness demands. True, there are many
failures In poultry keeping when It Is at
tempted on anything but a small scale,
whatever the reason. Thero were fail
ures at Petaluma, Mr. Dryden said, but
that did not prevent others making a
success of it. Instancing one farmer who
had made thirty thousand dollars out
of hia poultry In fifteen years. When
such Instances of success are on rec
ord, though they may be few compara
tively, it shows that it Is merely a nues
Hon of men and management, not of
Tha Porte has found a new objection
to the reform project for the govern
ment of Manchuria. The Sultan hears
that the fierce Albanian Mussulmans
have determined among themselves thnt
they will shoot any foreign officers who
undertake to exercise authority in
Macedonia. There are two ways, how
ever, to head off that scheme of assas
sination. One Ik to hold the Sultan re
sponsible for the conduct of his Alba
nian coreligionists; the other Is to catch
and hang the murderous conspirators,
even if Albania has to be devastated' to
do It. The Sultan can be well assured
that the reform will not stop, and also
that the Austrian and Russian ofllcers
sent to Macedonia to ree that It is car
ried out, will neither put off the uniform
of their own country nor put on hla.
The action of the Supreme Court of
Minnesota in freeing ex-Mayor Ames of
Minneapolis;, will of course be a great
Joy to that man and his friends. It will
also be a source of helpful cheer to
boodlers everywhere in that State. It Is
notice to all concerned, and to the pub
lic, that If-any small technicality can
bo Interposed by that court to prevent
the punishment of boodlers, the Judges
thereof, the majority of them, will
hasten to interpose It, There is no ques
tion whatever as to the substance of
the matters Involved; Ames was un
questionably guilty of Doodling and cor
ruption In office; he wns proved so. and
after a full hearing the Jury convicted
him. The Supreme Court of the State
In overruling that conviction, has added
another proof of the Ineffectiveness of
the courts to do JustIceyto the public and
punish those guilty of crime.
The putting In of mi extensive electric
street-car service by Americans in Ma
nila is a distinct sign of advance in that
rlace. It is proposed to spend four mil
lion dollars In the enterprise, the power
no doubt to be generated by water.
It seems to us thai this would be the
true business for the whole archipelago;
to build electric lines instead of steam
railways. Such lines could easily bo
supplied with ample power from plants
on the mountain streams, and the line
could be equipped with freight as Well
as passenger cars, and would be able to
.take care of all the transportation of
fered. In a region such as the Philippines,
the greatest need is means of transpor
tation; but the trafric Is not now and
will not be ior years, generally speak
ing, heavy enough to call for the con
struction of steam railways. These are
very costly in construction and mainte
nance. The electric roads, on the con
trary, cost comparatively but a trifle,
and arc cheaply operated. They could
easily meet all present and immediately
prospective requirements.
Now that American capital seems to
be getting a start In the Philippines, we
believe that this electric railway propo
sition can be made the solution of the,
chief difficulties of communication and
freightage. Lines in all the Islands could
lcadfrom the interior to the main ports,'
and so solve readily and cheaply the
whole question.
We do not sec among the names of
those connected with this enterprise the
name of A. B. Johnson, who was for
merly a resident of this city, later U. S.
Consul at Amoy, China, and after
wards the first one to suggest the trolley
system In the Philippines. "We.. should
naturally have expected him to be con
nected with any move of this sort, and
later It may turn out that he Is the real
promoter of the enterprise.
Mr. Lorlng, president of a Massachu
setts cordage company, claimed the
other day 'before a Senate committee
that there is not enough Americnn ship
ping to curry the freights between the
Atlantic coast and Manila, and that
therefore It is necessary to let the
contracts to foreign ships. If this Is so.
it is a shame to the country, and a con
dition that calls for instant remedy. But
the statement is challenged, and Mr.
Lorlng's contention that the require
ment for these freights to be carried in
American bottoms would work a hard
ship on the East coast shippers to the
advantage of the Pacific const ports, is
emphatically denied by the Marine Re
view, which declares that there are two
American ships ready for this trade for
every cargo that is Hkely to be offered.
There would appear therefore, to be no
reason. In fact or In sentiment, why the
Philippine trade should not be deemed
coastwise trade.- and be confined exclu
sively to American vessels.
Ono would hardly think that at this
late day, and after p.o many Jniprove
menlp In fire-arms, that the United
State still owns lots of Hints, for use In
muskets; but it docs, and Is going to
soli 166,500 of them at a sale on Febru
ary dtli, at Augusta, Georgia. At the
same time and place tho Government
will sell large numbers of swords,
knives, forks, spoons, and various old
fashioned equipments; also. 3753 quires
of emery paper, noted as very old, oer
a ton of flowers of sulphur, also old, and
seventeen tons of old brimstone; the lot
comprising many curious things besides;
one wonders why they were ever bought,
and what they could have been used for.
But some of the things offered were evi
dently captured in the war of the rebel
lion, as the Item, "780 pikes, rebel." It Is
a curious Jumble of stuff, most of It not
worth the advertising.
A new machine Is reported, by means
of which any one, by turning a lever,
may learn the amount of his gas bill. If
that Is all there is to It, the machine Is
not important. What Is wanted is a
brake on the gas meter which will pre
vent It running up a gas account when
no gas Is used, or in excess of the actual
use. And while the Inventor of such a
machine is about it. he might got up a
companion device to perform the like
service for the electric light meters.
Such machines would be immensely pop
ular; everybody would buy them.
