FRANKLIN, Ida., March 12. The
other evening a discussion took place
at the Franklin opera house upon the
question "Is socialism a detriment to
the welfare of humanity and the na
tion, and a bar to progress?" Messrs.
G. W. States, Adolph Spongberg and
F. D. Hculsh took the position that it
Is. P. Evans, of Maiad valley, and
David Egbert, df Falrvlew, contended
that it is not. Uefore commencing tho
discussion, IT. E. Shrives was selected
chairman, and he announced that each
speaker would be limited to llftccn
minutes each, Mr. Evans given two
privileges, and that tho audience pre
sent by a vote would decide the ques
tion. The Socialist View.
-The main points presented by the
advocates of socialism wes that
competition Is the cause of much
of tho adulteration In food stuffs and
In manufactured articles, and encour
aged dishonesty and greed; that large
accumulations of wealth arc detri
mental to the happiness and well-being
of tho poor, encourages Idleness
among the rich and increases the bur
dens of toll upon the laborer; that un
der the present system of government
the opportunities for advancement are
with the rich, tho poorer 'class having
no chance, but are doomed to contin
ual toll; that the experience of 125
years of the present system of the
government is a totat falluro and the
declarations of liberty a deception;
and that socialism will correct these
and many other evils and errors that
The Other Side.
The opponents of socialism leferred
to competitions as being a means of
Increased activity, an Incentive to ex
tend business and to prevent excessive
prollts The accumulation of wealth
is u privilege enloved since mankind
commenced their earthly career, and
with it has been accomplished all or
the most wonderful and beneficial
achievements in this or any other
country, and by Its use and circulation
it stimulates all the Industries where
by all are able to procure the necessi
ties and pleasuresofllfc.Theopportun
ltlcs for advancement are abundant,
the facilities for acquiring fame, posi
tion, and usefulness never were more
easily obtained than at present under
the splendid institutions established
under our government and the liber
ality of many of our citizens'. The ac
cusation of the past 125 years of our
government being a failure Is an as
tounding declaration when we note
the wonderful progress' that has been
made In that time and the difficulties
that have been overcome, and the
high position this nation holds as a
power in the world at the present
time. Indications are that this gov
ernment Is every thing except a failure.
The charge that the millions of loyal
liberty loving citizens of this country
arc so depraved that they cannot tell
the difference betweeu genuine liberty
and a deception Is most absurd. To
accept socialism as here represented
: Is to take a backward course.
When the discussion ended, the
chairman called for a rising vote and
an overwhelming majority voted that
Socialism was a detriment to the. vcl
faro of humanity, etc

" 'Of all Shakespeare's historical
plays' says Coleridge, 'Antony and
Cleopatra Is by far the rant wonder
fui.' ' Ho again says, assigning It a
place even higher than that of being
the most wonderful of the historical
plays, 'the highest praise, or rather,
form of praise, of this play, which I
can oiler in my own mind, is the doubt
which the perusal always occasions in
mo whether the Antony and Cleopat
ra Js not, In all exhibitions of a giant
power In Its strength and vigor of
maturity, a formidable rival of Mac
beth, Lear, Hamlet and Othello"'
The epithet 'wonderful' Is unques
tionably the right one to apply to this
drama. It Is loo vast, too gorgeous,
to be approached without somo pros
tration of the understanding. It pours
such a Hood of noonday splendour upon
our senses, that we cannot gaze upon
It steadily. We have read' It again
and again'; and the Impression which
It leaves again and again Is' that of

and will present "Antony and Cleo

vance man, was In Logan Monday and
while here showed the writer large
photographs of the various scenes and
people In the play. From these we
cannot but Judge that as a scepic pro
duction. "Antony and Cleopatra" will
surpass anything seen in Logan this
season, or any other season, and the
evidence is that the presentation will
meet with popular favor. Mario Drof

Mr. Ilanford, Is replaced by Miss Alice
Wilson, an actress of ability and of
remarkably pleasing features. The
femine -dancers and singers are the
loveliest aggregation we have seen on
or oft the stage since coming to Lo

puted to be unusually strong, the cos-,
turning and stage settings accurate,
and the Marc Antony of ilanford and
the Cleopatra or Miss Wilson all that
could be desired.

grand character ball was held in the

the masculine honors. The way he

a paragon, caused many to think that

Editor Logan Rkpuhmcan:
As we have seen nothing In your
valuable paper for a long time In rela
tion to this settlement, I, thought I
write you a few lines to let your read
ers know that wo are still alive and
doing welj. In spite of snow and frost,
which have both been pretty severe,
tho smoke still rises from our wood
fires and the flame of contentment
burns serenely In our bosoms. -
In the streets the snow still lies livb
live feet deep and sleighing is the
only nieans of locomotion. There are
no cutters and but two sets of "bobs"
in town, but there Is a large number
of family sleighs, holding from six to
sixteen, and In these our neighbors
and friends have been visiting all win
ter. On Sunday afternoon the meet
ing house Is surrounded with them.
We have had some nice sociables
since tho first of the year, the last one
being given a week ago today by
Brother Amos Butler, whose daughter
Matilda, was married to Jabez Thorn
ley three days previously. The party
was given In honor of tho young
couple, who received many usetul
presents and conducted themselves
with great decorum. The bride was
gowned In a drab llnsey, cut high in
the neck, and trimmed with nanow
blue velvet about the slecvcsand skirt.
The bridegroom, "Jabe," as we call
him, was in high spirits, and his face
beamed like a rose above his high col
lar and tight iltting sack suit. Rice
pudding was served during the evening
by the bride's sisters, and the guests
drank the young couple's health In
some excellent choke-cherry wine.
During thu festivities Hyrum Allen
and wife sang a new song entitled,
"Where is My Wandering Boy To
night," and Brother Baker read an
original poem which I shall send to
you as soon as I can got time to copy
it oil. Music was furnished by the
two Lemon brothers who play the
violin and harmonica very sweetly to
gether., I regret to state sickness has broken
out In the family of Hyrum Oborn.
Himself and three of his ooys arc down
with the mumps. As Brother Oborn
Is one of our leading singers his loss Is
, deeply felt by the choir. All are hop
ing for his speedy recovery. .
Will llurbldge Is building an addi
tion to his house, on the west side
facing the school house. He got out
the logs last fall and has laid them up
during the winter when weather would
permit. It will be dirt covered for
this geaon, as shingles are scarce and
dear, but It will bo a comfortable room
and in addition to the one he has al
ready will give him a convenient home.

Steps are boing takmi to till up tho
slough In the southwest part of town,
which causes so much trouble In the
spring and fall. Our worthy bishop
called a meeting of tho ward recently
to consider tho best plan for icmcdy
log this trouble. Somo advocated a
long polo bridge, while others favored
filling tho slough with gravel. The
latter plan was adopted and each own
er of a team has agreed to donate
thirty loads or gravel as soon as tho
roads permit hauling.
Owing to the great depth ot snow In
tho timber firewood has advanced In
price and Is now selling for 2 75 per
cord. Even at this price however,
there IS very little sold, for nearly
everybody is afraid or a long winter
and a late spring.
