The vote in Utah is the rlosoat for
many yoairs. Probably the nearest ap
proach U) 1t will be found in tho Pres
idential election of .l!GO. As has boon
oflon said, Utah is among the last of
Iho Stales to bo affected by any Na
tional movement or. drift, by reason of
the conservatism of those in control.
I.'itdoubtedly tho signed editorial of
President Smith's in the Improvement
Urn printed heretofore in these columns,
is what saved tho Stale lo Taft. Put
the nicoty of tho adjugtmont of (the
voto, apportioning it in approximately
equal division-, giving President Taft
just enough to socurc him, giving Wil
son a vqto that is onoouraging, and let
ting Roosovolt have a vote that is a re
minder of gratitude' duo, all maku a
spectacular finish lo a complicated cam
paign. Spry cots enough plurality to
satisfy him, Tolton is supported strong
ly enough so that he can not make much
complaint, and Morris is plucatcd by a
oto that' is really Haltering under the
circumstances. Thus, all have something
to bo grateful for. As snith the poet,
Mkc Enipoa from t ho vines of lSngcdl.
-Are the favors that fall from his bands."
It lakes nice discrimination and ap
portionment to fix things, like this; but
then, the organization iu charge of
things hero can reach to every family
of its own in the city and every house
hold in all tho countries in an incredibly
short space of time. And as stated in
the political manifesto of April, 1S9G,
tho voto is hy preference kept cvouly
balanced. It is thus easy lo east enough
of the controlled voto to get a 113' re
sult desired. That the division spoken
of in that manifesto is the ideal one for
the controlling power, there is no ques
tion. It insures nccuracy, certainty,
and, above all, discipline.
The result shows that Utah is as firm
ly bound as ever, and it also shows a
political dexterity in manipulation that
would bo admirable if it wore not so
indecontly defiant of the rights of tho
individual and destructive of the spirit
of our institutions.
Word is received at the I'. S. Navy
Bccruiting Station in Salt Lake City
that-the U. S. dreadnought "Utah" is
now the flagship of the Atlantic battle
licet. Lioutcnant Stewart W. Cake, U".
S. Navy, officer in charge of the navy
recruiting station here, is ollicialpy in
formed by tho Navy Department under
date of November 1. 1912, that the
Commander-in-Chief of the U. S. Atlan
tic fleet, Admiral Hugo Osterhaus, has
transferred his flag from the ship
"Connecticut" to the dreadnought
"Utah." This transfer took place Oc
tober 31, 1912. We aro informed by
Lieutenant-Cake that for fivo years the
Connecticut has been tho flagship of
our greatest fleet, but owing to the in
crease in sizo and activities of the
licet, the designation of a larger and
suporior battleship has boon mado im
perative for so important a status as.
tho flagship occupies.
A statement made is that "it was ev
idently expected (by whom, not stated)
that the battleship "Wyoming" would
be selected to cuccecd the "Connecti
cut," for reasons not given, and, there
fore, "it comes as a surprise" to those
who had the expectation named, that
the "Utah" was so designated. The
"Utah" has always been considered
one of the best vossols in the navy,
and the fact of her selection as flag
ship is conclusive proof of her supe
rior tactical qualities, as well as of the
alertness and the efficiency of her per
sonnel. Tho people of Utah will be
gratified at this nows of the selection
of her battleship namesake as the flag
ship of the biggest fleet of tho Nation,
It is a source of just pride, aiid we
eaq all unreservedly joiu in satisfac
tion on this preference shown to tho
Colonel Roosevelt give out his
threat of continued agitation for what
he calls progressive principles. There
(is absolutely nothing in his proposi
tions that promises the least relief to
the pcoplo in any direction. Such of
his propositions ns aro possible, amount
lo nothing, and those . that havo sub
oUnco to thorn are revolutionary. Wc
cannot imagine the American people
consenting to tfio change that Roose
velt apparently dooiros in the govern
ment of the United States merely to
)mador to Ms ambition, although it
so on is that multitude of them arc
roadpr to accopt his dictatorship.
Unquestionably rovongo and ambi
tion actuated Colonel Rooupvclt in the
cajujMigu which ha& jnst closed. Wc
do Mot know what turned him into such
a vindictive personal onotny to Presi
dent Taft aa he has ahown himself to
be; Ijut that tho outaity and tho fero
fiooo ambition whieh took possession
of him were the actuating motives of
his cajupaign, is clear,, while the false
pretenso of hia aattumptinii of progress
ive priori plea is plainly pointed out by
Senator La Toilet to. Jiooseveit had
irever paid any attention to progress
ive ptiliciee, did not understand what
they woru, or what they rneout, ami
bad uettr identified himself with them
is aay reawet; but all at oik-c he
retneo out aa a fierce advocate of those
policies, clulkiiug to be the one man
ia the whole' country who cauUl fitly
frtajid for them. Bot.it is noteworthy
that thope things he 'advocated were
ooi the progressive principles as laid
-dowb by Senator Lit FolloUo, Senator
( uniininx. and other leading Progres-
v Ix.t tru-k O'.r mi hnr of hi

j.. - i P."f,r.- uc prL
ciplc as contended for by the Progres
sive Senators.
WVr consider that Colonel Roosovolt 's
threat is a vain ono, and that when ho
undertakes again to como forward as
a National charaetor, he will be quietly
laid upon the shelf. His bolt defeated
tho Republican party this year, and
that party cannot possibly tako him
up again, whilo his so-callod Progres
sive parly was merely a subterfuge, a
moans by which ho hoped to realize
his ambitious desires.
The National result Is a sweeping vic
tory for tho Democratic parly. A di
vided Republican party could not hone
to win. Tho Democrats elect their
President by a tremendous majority
in the electoral college, and the chances
are that they will havo both Mouses of
Congress by substantia! majorities. The
Senate is somewhat in doubt, but the
winning party may as well make a clean
sweep and have it all. for it is not like
ly that a nominally Republican Senate
w,ouIrl be cohesive and ell'cctivc in any
practical way. There would be nothing
to gain either l3- tho country or by the
party in having such a frail hold upon
public airairs as would bo given by tho
ejontrol of the Senate. Tho winners
might as well have everything. The lo
cal Democrats appear well convinced
that the Democratic party will not med
dle with tho lead tnriff. Wo havo our
fears on this point, however, because
the Democratic blpw has usually fallen
most swiftly and strongly upon lead
and wool than upon any other items of
tho tariff.
President Taft sent a letter of con
gratulation to his successful rival, and
Colonel Roosevelt did the same, showing
both to be good losers lo the common
enemy, and to accept in the proper
American spirit the verdict of the peo
ple. Doubtless we shnll have from President-elect
Wilson from time to time an
nouncements of his conclusions on vari
ous points. Probably he will call an
extra session of Congress soou after his
inauguration in order to give as speedy
effect as possible to the verdict of the
people. This is clearly what the voters
expect; and in so doing President Wil
son will be simply doing what others
have done, before him, and what tho
logical conclusion of his victor- dic
tates. It is a pity that wc could not havo
the cloction machinery for President
and Vice President brought up to mod
ern conditions. There is no reason why
wo should not civo, immediate effect to
the result of tho election. The new Con
gress should begin with the new 3car,
and tho new administration the same.
This is something that we havo advo
cated horetoforo, and we boliqve that
tho change is inevitable. Under or
dinary conditions the legislation de
clared for by the election of Tuesday
would not be' possible until the assemb
ling of Congress 1 ho first Monday in
December, J9K5. When the communica
tions and transportation in the country
were slow and difficult, it v:?s well
enough to have the electors meet in the
noxt year after the election, and the
President to be inaugurated four
months after he was elected. Under
our improved conditions, however, there
is no reason why tho electoral college
should not meet in the different Stales
early in December, and have their voto
counted by the present Congress soon
after its meeting, the first Monday in
December. Everything then would be
read for a change of government with
the first of the year. The old, slow con
ditions have passed away in fact: now
let them pass awu' in procedure and
law. The next amendment to the Fed
eral Constitution might well provide for
this expediting of matters, so that the
expressed will of the people could be
given immediate effect.
Under the new postal law which un
dertakes a sort of censorship' over the
newspapers of tho country and threat
ens all who do not submit to that cen
sorship with denial of mail privileges,
there is a vast amount of uncertainty.
The law seems to assume thul a good
many things are advertisements which
arc not advertisements at all. This pa
per from the first has yielded all fair
respect to the law; but as to some
points, witholds its action in consonance
with tho determination of the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association to
soo what valadity there is in some dis
puted portions of the law.
Bnt as to the alleged advertising re
quirements, we submit to the extremo
construction of tho law, and indicate as
advertising all that is advertising and
also a good deal that Is not. But whilo
doing this wc wish to protest as to the
valuable space occupied. U is a costly
business to any newspaper to be obliged
to insert a lino upon every advertise
ment that the law seems to contemplate
must be so branded. A newspuper iu
the course of its largo issues, is liable
to be at a cost of as much as twouly
dollars a day, or oven more, in los of
paid spnee to carry this Hue. It is a
heavy waste of space for which the pa
per ets 110 return, and a compliance
with k mlo which, as a matter of fact,
is not of an) use to anybody. Still, in
order to give full faith and credit to
the law. this lino is printed.
Thoro is a great deal of uncertainty
about, the application of tho law, how
ever, with rosnect to this construction.
A i'hilndelphia newspaper printed in
tho German language, in order to make
sore of its compliance with this new
law, marks all of its reading matter
that way, so that thore shnll bo no ihjs
siblo -question of its mMilabio duality.
But it is evident thai to do this is to
incur a cot far beyond reason, and it
ought not to be expected of anv news
paper. He.Mdrs the rour- of Hnt 'irr

cent law which requires the plastering
of the pnper with tho sign "adv." can
easily lead a newspaper upon tho rocks
of the other law, where it -will bo de
nied the privileges of tho mail because
it is primaril nn advertising sheet.
This illustrates the unthinking way
iu which Congress makes its enact
ments, nud also it sIiowk the perils of
printing a newspaper at all when so
many scurvy politicians try to get after
the newspapers iu order to wreak per
sonal revenge.
The report of the Uarriman railroad
lines for tho quarter ending September
oOth shows an immense volume of busi
ness handled in the quarter compris
ing .July, August, and September, with
returns correspondingly large. The
gros earnings of the Union Pacific in
September increased about .lij 1,000 and
the not 2oG,700. Tho gross receipts of
tho Southern Pacific for tho samo pe
riod expanded moro than $ 1,100,000 and
tho net about $2S6,000. For the throe
months ending Soptombcr 30th tho
Union Pacific's gross gain was about
$1,S;)0,000 and tho net $1,150,000, whilo
tho Southern Pacific's gross gain rose
more than $",000,000 and tho net near
ly .2.000,000. Theso figures compare
with the same months of last year.
For tho thrco months tho statement
is as follows:

That corlainly shows that the trans
continental Uarriman lines havo struck
a period of prosperity that is eminently
good for thorn. A comparison of -the
Union Pacific handling shows that it
did about $1, 200,000 moro business in
Soptomber thau in July, -while the
Southern Pacific exhibits a ratio of
increase quite as good.
Tho October operating results are
expected to be tho most favorable of
any reported iu the current year, both
in volume of business handled and in
increase over the corresponding month
last year. The not receipts aro ex
peeled to show a corresponding gain.
Altogether, the Uarriman transconti
nental lines are eertainl in bonanza.
The services of aviators in war wore
made use of by the Italians in battles
iu Tripoli; but so far as reported, no
great advantage was derived therefrom.
It appears, however, that in the pres
ent war in the Balkans, there has been
decided advantage gained by the Bul
garians in tho employment of airmen
who havo spied out the positions of the
Turks and have given such information
as enabled the Bulgarian commanders
to deliver thoir attacks in the most ef
fective way and where they would be
the most sure of success. A good many
of theso airmen have been employed by
the. Bulgarians, and but one has suf
fered death. A graphic recital gives
the account of that death as follows:
Above Adrlanople today Micro swung
two lines high up Jn the sky. It was a
Russian biplane operating lor the Bul
garians, in an attumpl to discover just
what urn the conditions In the besieged
city. Instantly Turkish artillery was
aimed upward. Of a sudden there was a
Muttered movement of the plane, and It
dropped to earth within Turkish lines,
throwing out the aviator. This was the
first army aviator killed during actual
The French army is probably the best
equipped in the way of acroplaues, (bi
planes and monoplanes,) of auy ami
in the world. The Germans havo placed
their reliance chiefly upon dirigible bal
loons. It will be remembered that the
recent military operations iu England
were brought to a fiasco by the keen
observations of the aviators, who gave
such early and ample notice of the po
sitions and concentrations of the op
posing forces, that it was impossible
to bring any of the nianc'uvcrs into ef
fect. Jn the United States there have been
a good many tragedies in the
armv attempts lo use the bipluno, audvit
is commonb said that this couutry is
the least advanced in military equip
ment of any nation in this art. so far
as aviation is applied to war, although
iu the art itself, the Wright brothers
put the United States iu the forefront
of the world. A recent note from the
army aviation training ground at Col
lege Park. Maryland, states that the
army officers are trying a biplane with
a noifeeless motor, and that thoy aro go
iug to paint this biplane with an invisi
ble paint, which will make it impossi
ble to sec an aeroplane at any consid
erable height. Tho noise and the cuse
with which the biplane can be seen in
the air, havjj been tho groat deterrents
of its use heretofore in war, and have
been IhU chief source of danger. But
if a noinulchs motor can be provided and
a paint appliod that will make the ma
chine invisible, then, indeed, the biplane
should very soon boeorm; a wonderfully
