I am unablo to shoo with cao H M ff all vicious liorsi's. i Piesltlcnt Castro of Venezuela docs notinoposc to bcbullTcd by England and Germany and Is pcrparlng to fight. Wc admire his grit but don't think much of his Judgment. 1 1 Is evident that a determined effort w ill be made by Utah's Senator and Rcprcsent.itlc to push tho opening of the Uintah reserve. Much remains to do; the consent of the Uln talis must first be had, and the land will have to be surveyed, bub lb Is hoped that the matter may bo kept moving, and the hope is for opening without unreason ablo delay. Tho main tiling Is to keep tho matter moving. The director of tho mint reports that tho United States last year pro duced $78,000,000 In gold and $33,000, 000 in silver, or nearly ono third of the world's total, which was $368,373,800 for tho two metals. Australia was second In gold production, with a total of $70,000,000. The output of gold in Africa in 1001 was only $0,000, 000. Mexico was first In silver pro duction, with a yield of $34,000,000, to $33,000,000 In tho United States. Wo understand that within the next few days tho city council and county commissioners will do asked to give a way some valuable franchises. In the past we have been In to great a hurry to grant these concessions and In many Instances the peoples Interests have been sacrificed for individual gain. While It Is right to uso all proper means to secure street car lines, tele phone si steins etc, there should bo rc strlctlons and limitations that will. en able the pcoplo to contiol them for the public good. Rcpicscntatle Do Armond intro duced n bill in tho llouso yester day that alms at the destruction of trusts. It provides that It shall be unlawful to ship fiom any State or Territory, any manufactured articles sold for shipment or intended to bo sold unless every aitlclc has stamped upon the cover containing it the words "No monopoly product. Pro duced In open competition," or other wouls of like Import. A maximum penalty of $1,000. lino or one j ear's Imprisonment or both. It Is provided ftuther that articles not thus marked may bo confiscated. Tho dllllculty that has arisen down In Venezuela may lead to complica tions that would ultimately involve this nation In the squabble. It Is just possible that Prest. Castio, In lieu of cash, may olTer a land concession to satisfy the claims of England and Ger many. In that cent It might con flict with our lntcipietatlon of the Moiuoo Doctlne. It Is haidly prob ablothatwe would peimlt a tiansfer of tcnltory to either England or Ger many; but It might necessitate our taking a hand down theie, to the extent that wo might guaiantco the pajmentof tho Indebtedness and take chaigoof the custom houses oui selves until the claims were satisfied. It would seem like an act of Christian chai lty to seveial of tho Spanish Ameilcan Republics If wo would glc them to undcistand that they must stop their quarreling and maintain somosoitof older, or we will bo com pelled to Interfeio In tho Interests of humanity, Just as we did In Cuba. Those Mho Work Tor Salaries. Itlsqulto noticeable in this coun tiy, as a rule, that men who woik fiom year to jear under a common salaiy, never get ahead financially, nor make any particular maik in life. Whllo such men may have ability In ailcd ways, even moic than thoso the) woik under, but being dentures of chcinnstances, lemaln for jeais without much piomotlon; woiking by the month, thawing sakules at the end theieof. What becomes of tho salary V Every dollar Is usually spent for the living expenses of tho family. So It goes fiom month to month, and j ear to jear, until some men pass tho meildlan of their lives woiking for wages, and not a dollar laid away to help themselves with, in tho dajs they need It the most. It may not bo put ting it too stiong If wo should say theio appeals to be a fatality follow ing all such men. It Is admitted that salailes paid to men In their early life Is a good thing. At such times while they have small families, perhaps none at all, a portion of their earnings should belaid away as a saving de posit for futuio uso, so that when an opportunity piesonis itself, some busi ness may be gone Into wheieby a profit fioinasmall Investment may bo lea ll7cd, and thus to a certain extent be come Independent. Tho western coun try being new, many entei prises In a small way can bo gono Into, that will bo luciatlvc with a small amount of capital, and therefor this wilting Is inoio applicable to this country than to tho cast. Ftuther, largo corpora tions seem to have an age limit, that when employees have spent the best of their lives In their employ, such men arc released and younger ones employed to take tholr places. To men that are approaching middle age, wo say break away, if jou can rustle a little capital any way at all. If vou carr not do anything but ralso beets, start a poultry farm, go into tho bee culture, get a few sheep and graze them on Uncle Sam's domain. Get out and direct the labor of your bo)s; have them around you. Perhaps at tho present time while you arc earn ing a monthly pittance, to bo con sumed as regularly as it is earned, your boys arc running the streets learning mischief. Wo repeat again, to young men who are earning wages; be frugal, save some of your earnings, deposit ityin a savings bank, so that in riper years you will not bo under tho necessity of being bossed by men that don't know as much as you have forgotten. Remember tliero Is no pension awaiting you in old ago. The Chicago North Western Rail Road company have a most excellent rule established. AH employees remaining faithful and loyal to their company, at a certain ago arc placed on a retired list with a pension. Even in sickness their faithful employees arc cared for. Last summer one of their telegraph operators was In this locality on a va cation through sickness, attended by a nurse, and the whole expense was paid by the company, which is cer tainly praiseworthy. These advan tages do not await you, therefor look ahead a little and prepare for tho fu ture. In making the above change you may be cut short of some advant ages for a time, but In the long run you will l)e better off, and bo placed on an indepentent footing. Men working for salaries rcllcct on these suggestions. A City Club Room. Logan needs a library and reading room. Each of tho Colleges have one but they do not fill the requirements. What wc need Is a nice comfortable room as near the business center of town as It Is possible to get It, where peoplo can diop In and spend an hour or two reading tho papcis or perusing tho latest magazines. Wc have a good many joung people and old peoplo also for that matter, whose home surroundings are not as pleas ant as they might be, and they seek pleasure elsewhere. Many of the young men como up town and drift into the saloons and billlaid halls and como In contact with the Influences and associations of those who frequent lesorts of that kind. Young ladles cannot with pioprlety seek diversion In saloons but will spend moie time on tho street that is profitable for their good. Thero Is another class oj! pcoplo that might bo considered In this connection. Wc refer now to those who are tied at homo all day with routine duties, and to whom a little exercise and mingling w lth man kind would come as a welcome diver sion. To these peoplo an hour at a leading room or club would come as a welcome lclicf as an oasis In tho monotony of dally life. An oidlnaiy reading room would hardly answer theso lcquliomcnts; wo would want to go a little further, just what we would ncetl wo could not say but It seems to us we could follow the lead of the Young Men's Christian Association with profit. wc vrsrTKn ono of their associations recently in an eastern city about tho slo of Logan and weio surprised and pleased at what w o saw. There was a nicely airanged leading room furnished with chairs and tables and supplied with books, magazines and papers; adjoining this was an other room supplied with chess and checker boards and a ariety of other games. Adjoining this again was a pool room with two pool tables. In another loom was a bath tub and barber shop; another was litted upas a gymnasium. In another room was a piano whero those who loved music could spend an hour of an evening listening to tho best talent tho town could alloid. Wo wore told that tho rooms wero kept up by tho association partly by voluntary contribution and partly by monthly dues paid by tho members. The amount of the dues wero arranged according to the bene fits dcilved. For Instance fifty cents a week entitled a pcison to ono shavo and one bath. If a peison wished the advantages of tho bath room only, the feo was less. Admission to tho lead ing loom was fiec. Fifty cents a quarter entitled a peison to take ono book a week from the library. Two nights a week tho association gave a sort of conceit In tho music loom. Wo weio Informed that tho club had become so popular In tho town that a nice little sum was left over after all expenses weio paid, which was spent in purchasing new books. A SUOUKSTlON. Now some such organization as that, It seems to us, Is what wo need. Of course It would take time to work It up, but It can be done. It would seem tons that the Mutual Improvement organizations throughout tho city aro tho proper pcoplo to take hold of this matter. Tho looms In tho second story of tho tithing olllco building would bo very suitable and would cost but little. Nearly every mutual In the city has a small library that aro doing Httlo good where they aro trow. These could bo collected and form tho nucleus for a library. Tho news papers in towrr can furnish papers and magazines from their exrham;c3. So that a commencement could bo made without a very great outlay. Time .Begin to Think olXmas h presents now.
