Tinre is no fear of the United States
government taking any halfway meas
the difficulty
ures in the matter of settling
ficulty in Nicaragua If marines are
landed l with the order to assist the insurgent
urgent army in defending its position
it must be because the administration at
Washington is perfectly assured of the
backing of congress even to the extent
uf removing Zeutya and presiding at
the establishment of another ruler
And thai step means the assuming of
directory powers over the little Central
American state This is a departure for
I our nation and can be warranted only
ny grim and urgent necessity Some
thing of the kind occurred In the case
in Cuba There was a precedent and
iis i t following will make an end of the
Xihiya tyranny and mark the begin
ning i of u better day for the people of
Ins I country
The only mistake Involved in the caw
lOt a protectorate far Cuba was that the
I lung I arm of the United State was
v ithdrawn it would have been bet er
i > r the Cubans for the Americans and
i n the entire world It that protectorate
had i been continued until such time aa
Cuba could have been made a part of
the United States But whatever mis
take may have existed in that case ia
t rused because of the pledge this coun
try mad before the beginning of the
vir with Spain
I in the case of Central America the rev
< i nt I asstnfbUng > Sl Latin American rep
r natives in the City of Mexico and
ti ir open declarations of hostility to
t United States make interference by
Washington much in the nature of self
tit dun e Every ambitious politician
liom Mexico to Brazil believes himself
i possible t dictator and has hope of
v inning his way to a presidents chair
lich immediately will become the
tin otie If a goldgrabbing dictator If
the l United States shall take hold there
v ill I I be an end of exploiting the Central
American people in the interest of the
e Uliers of fortune Naturally those dis
turbers are < angry at the United States
And since they are the sort of men
tit past has proven them they are not i

ON THE STREETS AT NIGHT
Mrs 1 Adolph Simon baa done a die

vapor recently read before the Utah
state Congress of Mothers Mrs Simon
t uched upon a number of topics of vital
uTest in connection with the question
u1 juvenile life and child labor But t
in nothing did she raise a more IseI
lnrtant point than in directing atten
tion to the children who are found on
tin streets at night in this city
For inrroboratkm one has but to

from eight to eleven oclock at night A

They gravitate to the quieter places and

WHAT WAS THE GOOD OF IT
I Eighteen young men at Madison
night
Square Garden last Saturday
completed the difficult task of riding
more than twentysix hundred miles in
six days on a circular track One team
rode twentysix hundred and sixty
miles Throughout the week day and
night they have been watched by
crowds of interested peoplepeople who
became frantically excited in their in
interest whenever there was an attempt
of any rider to push the pace a little
It is all considered a wonderful thing
and the winners of the match will have i
I
plenty of money fof a day or two
But what is the good of it all Where
has one of these riders added a farthing
to the value of himself or helped any
of his countrymen
one of the millions
He has proved the possession of great
stamina and that is all But he cer
tainly doesnt seem to have made much
use of it
walk
There is some profit in Westons
across the continent It was so dis
tinctly a healthful employment that
countless numbers have taken up f
walking habit because of his example
There has been a better appreciation
of the open air a better understanding
of the value of walking as an exercise
and an extension of life and strength
to men of mature years who have
found that if Weston can keep strong
by walking so can they
But there is no health in the sixday
ride on a circular bicycle track in an
These riders have simply
inclosed garden
ply bent their heads to the handlebars
of their machines and plugged along
healthy
blindly without one human or
or sentiment to the
thought or hope
limit of the time they were contracted
to fill And when they quit the whole
Incident is closed Neither they nor any
one else is better for it
The sixday bicycle race Is the test
expression of foolish physical exercise
COUNCILMAN HALL IS
MISTAKEN
Pardon if we suggest that Councilman
the
mistake in opposing
Hall made a
motion to light as many electric street
Newhouse might
lamps as Mr Samuel
find it proper to install in Exchange
Place and Cactus street But there Is
time to correct the error by reversing
himself at the nmcil meeting tonight
Mr Newhouse bought and paid for
that land laid out the streets paved
and guttered them and gave them to the
city The property represent a large
money value and it comes as a free
gift to the whole community And it
comes in perfect condition too
It is now proposed that Mr Newhonse
will erect along these streets handsome
posts adapted for electric lighting and
all he asks is that the city shall fur
nish the lights
Mr Hall usually a careful and sa
gacious guardian of the citys interests
took the view that such a concession
would make a bad precedent
But any time you get a man to erect
two elevenstory buildings In Salt Lake
donate twostreets to the city all paved
and guttered and ready for use you
better break precedents and encourage
him At least precedents should net
stand In the way of so plain a benefit
aa this
Of course there are limits Prece
dents are good things But the whole
city ia so greatly gainer by the improve
ments In the district to be lighted the
property valuation of the whole city has
been so greatly Increased the whole
public cause has been so advantaged
that the city can well afford to light
all the lamps the owner may want to
erect
We trust Mr Hall and his friends may
recede from their position
SPOKANE SPEAKS NOBLY
It is a thing to encourage that move
ment of the Spokane Chamber of Com
merce to put new energf into the coun
try life commission at least so far as
applies to the big northwest Con
gress you will remember totally ig
nored the movement and turned a
rather broad and repellant back on the
commission that President Roosevelt
appointed and that had secured so
much of valuable data in its journey
Ings about the country I
The report of the commission passed
without even printing by congress is in
ourse of publication by the Spokane
men and will be distributed throughout
the mountain region
The subject is a very Important one
Betterment of existence on the farm is
necessary It is in line with the gen
eral movement of men away from the
consuming to the productive side of life
It is i helpful to the general cause of in
creasing the area of productive land
And because of these reasons the re
port of the commission should have
ILCM printed by congress and freely
distributed to every citizen of the re
public who could have been induced to
confess an interest in it
Utah commends the action of the men
at Spokane and hopes to walk sideby
side with the states of the west in
achieving the needed reform
BUT IT MIGHT BE WORSE
liobinson I Crusoe you will remember
gathered encouragement from the fact
that he vas just as miserable and un
torniuue as was possible and that
since this world is a world of mutations
he was bound presently to be happier
Salt Lakes police are not so Ineffi
cient at least as those of San Fran
cisco In that devoted coast town a
robber gentleman cleaned up a drug
store on theevening of November twen
tyseven Last Saturday night he
walked into the very same store and
robbed it again
He had consumed most of the inter
vening time killing the manager of a
bath < lublithnunit and emptying u
I I
number of cash registers along Market
street and didnt go home enough to
give the police a chance to catch him
Also he very inconsiderately neglected
from day to day to tell the police what
his hourly schedule was going to be
Well our poLice are not that bad any I
way In the light of what is doing in
n Francisco things might be worse I
Of course they are bad enough and I
we are going to hope that they will be I
better even without that argument
which Robinson Crusoe used If the
force here were as bad as possible there
would be a certainty of improvement I
since this is a world of changes But I
we look for better work on the part of I
the department even before it sinks to
the efficiency level of San Francisco I
WE DONT BELIEVE IT
I
One Mr M Hayes described as < as
siatant secretary of agriculture pub
lishes the statement that he and some
friends are going to establish a new
magazine devoted to the better breeding
of animals and plants Which is a
thing to be commended And then the
Hayes man is quoted as having said
We have at least induced the public
to believe the statement that a billion
dollars can be added to our plant and
animal products by scientific breeding
Another billion can be added by bring
and
ing more acres under cutivatJon
adding fertilizers
The scientific fact however is that
the billion added by breeding will be
almost all profit while the increase
from more and better farming will cost
nine hundred million of dollars
The latter part of which we dont be
lieve at all If there were no more than
one hundred million dollars profit in
any billion dollars invested in farming
then there wouldnt be any farms And
if the money invested In livestock in
terests were all profit Mr Harriman
and Mr Morgan and Mr Ryan would
have been found in that instead of rail
roads and insurance companies
The Interesting thing about farming
Is that money intelligently invested re
mains It is added to the initial capital
Every dollar of improvement adds more
than a dollar to the total And every
dollar employed In tilling and develop
ing land grows with the growth of the
grain
Stock raising needs betterment and
it will pay for the labor and money in
vested in it But It is a mistake for
any man to decry the promising possi
bilities of agriculture
MAKE THEM PAY if BACK
Attorney General Wlckeroham de
clares he will attempt to collect from
the sugar trust every dollar that trust
is proved to have fraudulently escaped
paying at the custom house And to
that resolution the entire nation will
say Amen
It seems perfectly certain the em
ployes of the trust and the employes
of the government can be convicted
The mass of evidence that has been se
cured against them is so convincing
I
tilot there is little doubt many criminals
will have to go to prison
That ftct can not be established with
out the basic conclusion that the trust
has escaped payment of money due the
government And since the trust is
solvent the collection of that withheld
cash should be by no means a difficult
problem
A CHRISTMAS VAMPIRE
A fool there was and he made a gift
Even as yOU or I
He bought it with taste and care and
thrift
For a lady his friends thought rathe
swift
And when he gave ithhe lady sniffed
Even as you or I
Oh the judgment and taste and time w4
waste
On the gifts at ChrtsmaetWe
Which we give to the lady who isnt
wedgive
pleased
And now we know she could never be
plfEfrdj
And never satisfied
A fool there was and he gave his
cheque Even as you or I
For a necklace of Marie without a
Heck
And she never thanked him a single
speckEven
Even as you or I
Oh the chink we lose and the think we
lose
On the things we buy with pride
To give to the lady who never is pleased
And Brow we know she can never be
pleased
And never be satisfied
The fool was fleeced to his last red cent
Even as you or I
She threw him aside when his gold was
spent
And nobody cared where the lady went
And the fool gave way to loud lament
Even as you or I
And it wasnt the loss and it wasnt the
dross
The reason that same fool cried
11 was coming to know that she nevf
was pleased
Seeing as last she could never be pleased
And never he satisfied
