is well for .each eightftJgrado graduate

Get all you can there and you will find

There need 'no question ariso in tho

whatever may bo said by Uninformed
persons to the contrary.

are self explanatory;
Supt L. E. Kggcrtscn, Provo City,

, that the university is heartily in favor
I of public High schools nnd as a rcprc-
I BCflUijJo of tho university I would urge
I ' " . thBtublishment of bucIi bcIiooIb in
Wtown large enough to support
ttC ' one. It would bo n great advantage I
" V somo Instances for two, three or more
J towns to combine in the. support of one

high schools well done because the uni
I t .vefsity is nnxious to givo full credit for
work completed in tho high schools and
, thus to givo all the encouragement and

f perpetuity. Yours Truly.

A Strong Combine
"Citizen" Goes After Utah Coun
ty ABsocintion in a Lengthly
Article Says There is no Com
petition in Prices on Building:
Dcnr Sir, The readers of the Citi
zen nre no doubt nil conversant with
agitation of Into in our state capltnl
with reference to the Butchers' nnd
Grocers Association, which has finally
resulted in the issuance of nn order for
n Grand Jury to investigate the doings
of the said Association, as well as other
kindred combines, which nre operating
within the confines oT the state.
The investigation will no doubt meet
with tho hearty approval of tho major
ity of the people, and hopes are freely
expressed thnt it may result in putting
a decided check on trade combines
which of late have been rapidly grow
ing in numbers nnd strength to tho
detriment of the best interests of tho
community as a whole.
The people of this neighborhood have
cause to congratulate themselves that
there is still competition In prices so
far us the General Merchandise stores
nre concerned, and a merchant is still
at liberty to sell 1G lbs. sugar for $1.00
even if h's competitor only sells IK lbs.
There is nn organization, however, In
rtho county that the writer believes to
be detrimental to the best interests of
the community, nnd should not be over
looked when Grand Jury investigations
: are In progress.
Ihe renders of the Citizen nre no
I doubt aware that a strong combination
exists in Utah County, as well as in
some other counties in the state, hnv-
, ing for its main object the settirg and
maintaining of uniform prices on lumber
and building material the people buy.
The purchaser of lumber hero has lenrn-
. cd thnt there is no competition In prices
so lar as building material is concerned.
If you buy from Mr. Lumberman nt
American Fork you will pay precisely
tho same prices as if you bought of Mr.
Lumberman at Provo, no matter what
.quantity you, buy or aLwhat price the
'dealer purchased tholumber that he is
scHing you. In fact all competition Is
obliterated, nnd tho only consideration
in giving the order is your preference
for the dealer to whom you are giving
But, said one dealer, "Our prices nre
as low as prices elsewhere, and there
arc members of the association who
would object io the putting on of un
reasonable or oppressive prices." This
may or may not be tho case. The
trouble is; there is n wide difference of
opinion as to what a reasonable prteo is.
The surgeon may deem ono hundred
dollura as reusonablo for a slight sur
gical operation, but to the majority of
the people tho charge would be consid
.ered excessive. Besides th'. lumber
dealers have purchased a good" portion
of their stock nt prices mnterialiy low
er than what they uro at tho present
time, but.hu is unable to give tho pat
ron any benefit from this t-ource. he
must maintain nnd sell ut tho Regula
We conceed tho right of the dealer to
place whatever price on h:s goods ho
may see fit, but tenors hae not tho
right to destroy competit.on by com
bining into a trust for the oppression of
the public. There is no question but
that tho Lumber Dealers' Association
has had a decided tendency to increaso
prices. The A-ritcrcalia to mind one In
stance where un independent lumber
yard was purchased by n Lumbc Com
bine, und almost before the inventory
was taken prices were advanced on
lumber from two to four dollum per
But, snys one, "Why do not Indepen
dendent lumber companies start up,
which would no doubt have the sympa
thy of ihe people?" Tho answer to
th.s is, thnt it would be next to impos
sible for nn Independent Company to
operate under existing conditions in op
position to tho Combine.
There U nn understanding existing
between tho mill men, wholesalers nnd
retailors. Tho wholesalers say to tho
mill men, we want your lumber but
you must Bell only to the association.
Tho retnil lumbermen's Association
say to the wholesaler, you mUBt sell
oiny to the Lumber Combine or wo can
not do business with you, and so it
It is time for tho Americnn people to
rise up und put a stop to these oppres
sions. Thank Heaven, tho iir we brenlho is
not controlled by u irugt.
Tho writer is firmly of the opinion
that there is no curthU excuse lor tho
i . I
existent o of tho fflKiber Dealers As-'
sociation In UtaMpouiMy, so far as
price regulating tawnccrnal.
Our Locnl lumlMatcalcrs are men of
