Politics and religion are excluded from
the work of tho federation, attention be
ing confined to educational, social and In
dustrial interests, yet under tho present
tension of things in Utah feeling runs
deep, and the least expression or sugges
tion touching vital Issues creates keenest
Interest and starts restrained emotion.
This was noticed on several occasions,
especially when, in one address, reference
was made to the fact that the federation
stands fo. the purity of tho home. Every
ear was on tho qu! vlve and hearts wcro
in a flutter, but tho speaker cpiletly and
tactfully moved to other ground and all

with consummate skill all possible occa
sion for Ill-feeling, by overlooking tho
incident which shook tho National federa
tion to Its center at St. Louis.

Tho political emblem of tho American
party adorned the dresses of a few dele

In tho ODlnlon of Francis A. Lewis of
Philadelphia, a member of the commltteo
on canons, who favored no remarriage of

"Tho Intermountain States," ho udded,

Predicts Bad Defeat for Parker.
"I believe that Judge Parker will po

and that was the most overwhelming de

go further and predict that Roosevelt s
popular majority will be greater than
that of McKlnlcy over Bryan In 1S06 or
In 1000. All my Information from Dem

reached tho capital city today.
Astounded at Statement.
Intermountain people who reside here,
who know tho Ogden man, and who also
know his political Idiosyncrasies and
weaknesses, arc astounded at Uio state
ments mado In the speech; for Bill has
sought many places In the gift of Undo
Sam and was always turned down, for
tho present Administration has no use
for mon of his Ilk, who aro ever seeking
Bill "Wanted Place.
Ills statement that "Senator Kearns has
asked mo moro thnn a hundred times to
nccopt big offices under the general Gov
ernment; he has asked me to go as Unit
ed States Minister to the Philippines." is
absurd, when the fact Is known that ho

timo after time ho has Importuned the
senior Senator for position.
Told "Willful Falsehood.
This demagoguo who has allied him
self with tho hierarchy in Utah, and who
bawls about tho positions which he al
leges Senator Kearns tendered him, knew
when he mndo tho statement that ho was
tolling a willful and deliberate falsehood.
He was novcr tendered any place by the
senior Senator. ,

that he Is, he makes statements like tho'so

sioner Robert F. Lee for use in the Cal

The relatives aro attacking the
sanity of Miss Dolbeer, who made a
testament with her own hand by which
Miss Etta M. Warren, her traveling
companion, Is chief beneficiary to the
extent of more than $1,000,000.
Misn Warren, at a previous hearing,
testified that Miss Dolbeer tripped and
fell from the window to which she had
gone because of the heat In her room. A
city detective. Sullivan, said that Miss
Warren had told him the same story.

Saloons Abound in Peaceful Vale,
"With Other Immoral Features.
Special to The Tribune.
CALIENTE, Oct. 20. A trip to the
front at Los Vccas reveals what can
hastily result from railroad construction.
In this littlo valley, heretofore ono of
tho aulotcst and most remote portions
of tho Union, has suddenly sprung up a
town of many hundred souls. Tho ln
areaso in population Is due to tho fact
that tho Salt Lako Route construction
gangs and tracklayers havo moved head
quarters to this point It is a frontier
town In all that tho word Implies.' Camp
followers of every undesirable kind havo
followed the graders and tracklayers and
tho natural result Is Immorality in the
worst form. Saloons are everywhere and
gambling Is rlfo
While this Is not at all different from
other frontier camps on railroad con
struction, It Is more pronounced at this
point because it Is so new to tho fow
people who havo lived there always.
Rough characters from Colorado and
Tonopah havo drifted to tho front and
help to mako up the cosmopolitan popu
lation. ' In the meantime the work Is
pushing on and the track Is now woll be

ranee of or indifference on the part of Iji
foreigners to Russia's true internal con- fflf
ditlon. The fact is that in Russia, as In
other countries, there are several par- Ml
ties; two of these want peace tho ex- flf
treme reactionaries, because they con- H(
stltute what was known In the United fflj
States during the Spanish-American (
war, and In England during the Boer ' j
war, as 'peace at any prjee men,' and j
the ultra-radicals, because they are In j
favor of a humiliating peace which ; 5
would weaken the present government. : I
But these parties aro Insignificant be- fl

greBsives, who wish to see Russia's In- j
terlor economical capabilities developed

that only through a decisive Russian

be healed, not plastered. Russia has j a
