KESUIiT OF THE ELECTION.
The jXaClonjil election returns verify
lie most extravagant claims mado for
Governor Wilaon. M was a veritable
landslido for him. There will bo no
need to talk about oleclion by the
House, or-tins. of Stales, or anything
of thnt'ktnd. Wilson has evcrytbiuK
in sight, and ho has it with a tremend
There was no I -even a fighting chance
for tho Koptiblicnu party, split as it
was, inlo two factions. President Taft
deserved reflection, but tho fates were
against him. The Republican Senate
of JOOfl, in insisting upon ignoring the
people's wishes with regard to the tar
iff revision, 'laid f broad and deep tho
foundations for the upheaval which has
conic. The inconsistencies, the vagar
ies of that' tariff revision, Jts absolute
negation of the party's pledge in the
National 'platform of 100S, as construed
by President Taft, made it impossible
for the people to support the Repub
lican party any longer. Right in that
summer session of Congress was tho
?cod sown for tho fateful harvest that
The Utah Senator did their full
share in bringing about the result which
was chronicled- yesterday, but as Apos
tle Smoot told tho carded woolen men
when they warned him if the Senate
persisted in its vicious tarill revision
and its discriminations, cspccally as
concernod themselves, the country
would go Democratic. The well-known
reply of Smoot was, "What the hell do
T care if it docs go Democratic," and
so wo presume he docs not care now
any more than he cared then. But what
nn attitude for a party ' leader to ' as
sume! The Federal bunch is doomed by the
election j-cstcrday; but personally as
concerning themselves, it is a comfort
I to know that they have been forehand
ed while they had things in their own
hands, and they arc well provided for.
There will be no suffering. But tho
people of Utah will bo delivered from
a heavy and grievous load. The Re
publican party may now have some
chance, of a respectable life' in this
State. " " : '
So far as the election in Utah is con
cerned, the indications at this writing
fl a. m.) favor the Republicans, but
l- a close vote. in this county the
Republican ticket pulls through by
much reduced pluralities. The complete
returns will show tho closest vote in
A QUESTION ON APPEAX,
A question of a good deal of im
portance is to bo decided soon by tho
Court of Customs Appeals. Tfc grows
out of the act of 1.01 exempting from
duty wood pulp and print paper, which
oxemptious were carried in tho Cana
dian reciprocity treaty. Tho first sec
tion of the act provided for reciprocal
free trade with Canada in certain ar
tides. Canada refused to agree. So
that section is inoperative. But section
two of the treaty was a positive enact
ment by Congress, not depending on
any action by Canada; it piovidcs"with
out any conditions, that wood pulp and
print paper may bo brought into this
country from Canada free of duty.
But a number of European countries
claim the exemption accorded to Can
ada. Protests against the assessment
of duty were decided upon by tho
Board of General Appraiser., of Cus
toms adverse to the importers from
Canada. These have appealed t0 the
Customs Court. Two main questions
nriso: first, whether Canada is a coun
try, slate, or nation within the mean
ing of the "favored nations" clauso
of our treaties with foreign countries.
If so. then tho court will be askod lo
fcay whether a treaty applying specifi
cally to Canada must be extended lo
cover all countries with which we have
"favored nation" treaties. If not,
thru the question will arise on the val
idity of fho treaty itself, whether the
United States is authorized lo treat
with a people that is not a country,
state, or nation.
Tho Commerce Court has dona ex
cellent work in settling appeals on cus
toms rajee. Thi court has been or
ganized about two years and a half,
and in that Lime it has cleared off a
Inrge number of casus (hat wore pend
ing at the time of ita organization.
The intent of Congnws in creating this
court ws to oxncililo tho settlement
of tariff coiitrovorp'teu. This intention
Ua bcrii folly mt bv the court, and
tli work is nw up t date. The im
porter nrn much gratified by the fact
thnt they can got speedy and final de
cisions how oh any controversy arising
under the tariff low.
Thore is one feature of this biattcr
of caittrovcraivw arising ovor tariff,
however, that is usually lott sight of;
and that is whero diapiitr-a arifc, the
goveruiiMWt insists upon tho payment
of the tariff a claimed, by the customs
ofttrrs. The importers pay the dut
under protect, and add this duty to the
cost of Ute -goods, collocting tho same
from those to whom they sell. Thoy
jstc th immediately reimbursed, and
rrally 'WN "o nionoy interest in th
protoftt Hbieh I hoy havo made, yet tW

government, then thoy arc doubly
The injne is true oven whothcr tho
Customs Court of Appeals decides iu
their favor; but tho difforcnCo ia that
they'get their inouoy quickor. In any
event, liowover. tho importers cannot
wait the final decision of their case,
and they add the customs duty to the
cost of tho goods, and make thomaolvos
whole from tho first. H would bo ad
vantageous to all concerned if there
were somo competent ami final means of
determining tho matter before the
goods'aro taken out of bond; but this
is impracticable under our laws. Tho
importers, therefore, must coutinuo to
have the double advantage of collecting
from those to whom they sell, tho
amount they Imvo advanced on cus
toms duties, where there is a contest,
with the prospect of getting that mon
oy back if thoy can.
But the case referred to in regard
to wool pulp and print paper is of in
terest to every newspaper in tho Unit
ed States; and the final decision of the
court upon that question will bo keenly
THE SIXTEENTH AMENDMENT.
The amendment to the Federal Con-j
stitution specifically conferring upon
Congress the right to impose an income
tax, is likely to be the sixteenth amend
ment to the Constitution, taking prece
dence of the one providing for tho pop
ular election of U. S. Senators. A re
cent dispatch from Washington slates
that thirty-two Stales have certified to
Secretary Knox their ratification of this
income tax amendment. Two other
States have ratified, but thus far havo
not sent the ofiieial notice. That makes
thirty-four ratifying States.
As there arc forty-eight States in
tho Union, and as tho concurrcnco of
three-fourths of the States is required
to ratify a Constitutional amendment,
the consent of but two more is neces
sary in order to make this amendment
Some of tho States that have not yet
ratified, but which show indications
that thoy may ratify, are Delaware,
Now Hampshire, Massachusetts, Now
Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia,
Virginia. Florida, New Mexico, Wyo
ming, and Utah. It would bo straugo,
indeed, if two of all these do not finally
ratify. The Republican platform of
this State two years ago made specific
promise of ratifying this amendment;
but though tiio lo.wcr House ratified,
the Senate refused, and so tho pledge
was not kopt.
But it can confidently be expected
that the two necessary States will be
found ttie ensuing winter to ratify this
amendment, and the State Department
ha3 sent out word specifically to the ef
fect that expectations are for the ratifi
cation of this amendment before the
term of present administration comes to
DIAMONDS AND GOLD.
A reecut report from U. S. . Consul
Edwin N. Gunsaulus, at Johannesburg)
tells of the production of diamonds and
gold in the South African fields. Tho
official mining statistics show a' total
diamond production of the Union Dia
mond Companies of South Africa for
the six months of 1912, of 2,92,255
carnte, valued at $22,100,970. which is
a decrease from tho provious half-year
of 651,192 carats, and in value of $30,
940. Of this diamond production the
Transvaal t unfed out 982, lu3 carats val
ued at $5,0-17,200. of which -11,101 car
ats, valued at $924,936, were recovered
from the river diggings. The Orange
River Free State diamond production
for the six mouths was 330,679 carats,
valued at $0,047,027.
The gold mining statistics for the six
months of tho present year, ending .June
30, 1912, show that the gold mines of
the Transvaal are today crushing more
rock than al any previous poriod in the
bislory of the VYitwatersrand. In the
first half of 1911 tho Transvnal mines
crushed 11,70S,493 tons of ore, and in
the first half of the current year they
crushed 12,547,652 tons. Other author
itative figures are given as follows:

A TIP ON TIPPING. '
The war against tipping docs not
seem to have proved a success. It
was stated early in tho year that the
commercial travelers would take the
matter up, would refuse lo tip waiters
and holcl attendants, and that thoy
would bo supported by the general pub
lie. But the commercial travelers socnv

OOST OF LIVING DECLINE.
We notice that sonic of the Eastern
papers aru reckoning very confidently
upon a reduction in the cost of living,
to come soon. This expectation H
based mainly upon tho figures of tho
immenso crops of tho current year. It
is assumed, and the market gives some
justification for this assumption, that
the cost of living will drop as tho im
menso crops come into the market. ,
Thus, the Brooklyn Times has made up
an illuminating statemeut of the crop
products and of the reductions in prices
of the main products, so fnr as tho
Eastern markets show up to the pres
ent time. Tho following is the stato
mout referred to:
1. Corn, which for the llrst time In
the history or the country exceeds 3,000,
000.000 bushels, or HO per cent moro thun
last year. And although this crop will
not ho marketed for some weeks, thoro
has already been a decrease of fleven
cents per bushel over last yenr'a price.
2. Hay A yield of 72.000,000. or li,
000,000 more than a year ago, with a
corresponding reduction of 2.74 per ton.
n. Wheat About 100.000,000 bushels
more than last year with an initial drop
of 80 cents per barrel of flour a savins
to the consumer of S108. 000.000 on nn
average consumption of 1 1-5 barrels.
4. Oats 1,117,000,000 bushels, an in
crease over last year's crops of more
than 50 per cent, with an initial decrease
in price over last year of 0 cents per
5. Potatoes 3"0r,000. 000 bUshel3, .17
per cent Increase over last year's pro
duction, with - a corresponding drop In
price on October 1 of 37.2 cents a sav
ing to tho consumer, at this rate, of $94,-
0. Cotton The largest crop on rec
ord, Willi an Initial drop in price of 2.1
cents from the schedule of 1 y 10-
Thero can, therefore, be a fair ex
pectation of at loast sonic reduction
in the cost of living, this to apply all
over tho United States: and tho peo
ple in Utah will be ready with wel
comes for that reduction when it comes.
DRIVING OUT THE SAVAGE.
The accounts of tho atrocities com
mitted by the Turks in their wild
flight beforo the Bulgarian armies, read
like the narratives of inhuman atroci
ties perpetrated in the dark ages. To
read again of such horrors as actually
occurring within our own timo and to
be a matter of current telegraphic
news seems like setting our times back
a thousand years.
It is surely a matter of congratula
tions to all Christendom, that the sav
age Turks are being driven out of Eu
rope. They have been there altogether
too long, and tho atrocities thoy have
committed have been so shocking as to
deaden the sensibilities of those upon
whom they were inflicted for more than
four hundred years. At last, howover,
the spirit of . humanity and of revolt
against inhuman practice struck deep
into the hearts of the Bulgarian peo
ple and they aro driving out their vile
It is good lo sec that the Bulgarians
arc determined to have no interference
on tho part of tho European powers
in their successful prosecution of the
war. They will uot halt short of Con
stantinople. Thoy havo the Turkish
army driven a disorganized mass to the
last Turkish lino of entrenchment.
There is little likelihood that this line
can stay tho advance of the victorious
Bulgarians, who arc now joined also by
the Servians, and aro sweeping every
thing beforo them. They will dictate
peace at Constantinople, just as thoy
have claimed the right to do, and that
right should certainly bo accorded
them; and these terms of peaco can
be nothing less than the expulsion of
Turkish rulo altogether from Europe.
Tho question imn' fairly arise in the
minds of the statesmen of Europe
whothcr it is not botter to take this
present occasion to terminate the Ot
toman power everywhere. For it is
beyond question that if the Turks arc
merely driven out of Furope and al
lowed to continue their savage swaj
in Aiia Minor, thoy will rcvcngcfy4Yiy
inflict such massacres upon.ArYrToHianj,
und other Christians in tl,ieir power as
will palo all such previous massacres,
and will horrify the world. The Turk'
