TO THE GOOD .PEOPLE iJ , OF SOUTH CACHE. fi Kj Wo are sorry to hnvo been brought K wA into n controversy wherein your Inter- H- Ijj ests nnd ours nro Involved, especially K I wherein the fault appcarB to bo that K ff'j ' of misunderstanding, or lock of sut- Bjfll flclcnt thought nnd consideration. The Htt J entire matter appears lo hinge around B If! n certain petition circulated' In Logan H till f tor certain changes' In train Bcrvlcc, B'i ''' and certain actions on the part of B III J Commercial clubs, etc H 1 ! The Republican desires to mnko h BBK( M tj statement to the good pcoplo of south B Jl Cache and then rest Its case. The K Jj Republican In tho beginning voices BBR If . confidence in the Integrity, the man- B jl ' hood, and individual worth of the B J people of south Cache. It realizes B (j that they are human beings, howov- BBK jfj cr, and thus subject to mistakes Just BBS R ob we are. When their rights are In- H. IP , fringed upon they resent It, for which BBB Jh we admire them. They prefer peace, g ' but are not nfrald of war, and possess 1 1 tho ability and determination to hnvo I Justice meted out to all. Such Is our I opinion of our good friends on tho ? south and wo stnnd ever ready to see I I that Justice is theirs to tho ability I I ' that we possess. f C ( First wo desire to state that wo ' , refrained from making nny comments I on tho controversy, and in fact had , nothing to do with It until wo were ' assailed, feeling" that all -would work , out for tho benefit of nil in tho end. BBS!;' I I . Wo Ba' ""til wo wcro assailed, and BfJ f ' herewith submit tho evidence: BBBl I ; u" Ul '"' ,n-y 0 J,n' the Comity H ' Commissioners grunted two franchls- B . i cs In Cacho County, and on the snmo BBV day appropriated tho sum of ?1000 lo B i,, assist In tho purchase of the Lognu- Ktjr j Ballard Cut-off. On tho matter of BBWji I franchises under tho heading ".All 14 Hall tho County Commissioners" wo HlfjjH j wrote as follows: Hltf "lllt action of tho county comiuU- H l sloners at tho meeting on Saturday Id B ! the result of almost universal fuvor- Bf nbIe comment. They were presented Kf wl,h two franchises, with apparent Hjf conflicting requests, but handled tho H matters in such a way ns to mnko all BBW; parties feel good, and at the- samo B ,lmc Preserved the rights of euch Bj T1'cy acted wisely, consistently, and Hj! In the Interests of tho cntlro county. BBHf I t"eJ' "n11 previously laid down certain BBffJ coiidltlotu that must bo met, among Blj them being a definite route, and a H j i sufficient ' guaranty of good faith. BBfff These conditions being met, and tho M . requests otherwise in accordanco with HJ ' lawr there was nothing left for tho BJ commissioners to do other than to I grant the requests. They did It, and at the same tlmo maintained the dig nity, and consistency of their offlco, BBM i nnU sent rtiresonttlves of npparcnt B ' conflicting Interests away without B nn' Just causu for complaints. Tlioy ' hnvo through their acts of Saturday Bf ndded one more commendnbie act to Bi ' their already successful admlnlstra- BK tlou. All hail tho County Commls- Bf i ' sloners. They have acted wisely and BJ1 r H f " Tliat is the nitlclo in full and wo B - "8k 'ou ln reading tho snmo to do- Bf j cl(lc ns to whether or not thoro Is BBy any reference to tho $1000 approprla- B ' tl0"' or whether or not there Is arty BS ) niore to it other than a legitimate Hg I ( opinion ns to the nets of tho County '1 I ICommluslonorB. After having decided Hf j ithcn wo n8k you w,,at Justlficatlna H, ' ffl there is in the following urtlclo which Hljj ' ' w appeared In the South Cache Courier B3 ,,' under dnto of May 17th: Hf ' "With astounding audacity, the J.o- ij pan Republican comes out editorially, ? nnd unloads Itself of tho following r , drnmatlc exclamation: 'Halll All r Hall, the County Commissioners!' And BB" ' wliy thls 0Utblll'Bt of Pralso, used onlv Hg , In extraordinary Instances In dolug H1 honor to some great monarch, or in HHi.V . comic opera? nj? "Simply because the County Com- Bq '' ., mlsloners had been misled Into grant- BB-fe- lnfJ nn nppropriatlon for a private BBgMfe enterprise, nn net (vhlch the Ropubll. QIH surely knowp Is as inconsistent BBBBB as If the same approprla BBBBBBBrtlon had beei made to ald Hyrum In I establishing n water works system." This article was headed "An Il legal Gift" and nppeared on tho edi torial pngo of that paper. Wo have not quoted tho cntlro article, the remainder of It dealing on the ques tion of Illegality. Now dear people wo ask you to read and then decide es to what Justification your paper had In Jumping on to us in this way because wo voiced our opinion on tho mntter of franchises, nnd nftcr having con sidered same wo ask you If wo were not Justified In answering snmo as wo did In n recent issue nnd nro we not Justified in the conclusion th.U your editor is n wilful prevoricator, or tho possessor'of a mind diseased? As far as this phase, of the case Is concerned you have tho whole Btory. Tho legality of tho case we did not attempt to discuss. Wo are not n lawyer ns your editor appears, or pre sumes, to be. We were content with leaving this phase of tho case with' tho commissioners who hnve paid attorneys to ndviso them, and ns a last resort Blmply said, and wo say so again, that "tho commlosloners to date have evidenced tho fact that they are perfectly capable of taking enro of themselves. They are. all responsible citizens, nnd will stand accountable for their own acts. Our neighbor need have no fears of their defaulting nnd lenvlng their bonds men In the lurch. Should they step wide of tho mark, which is not at nil probable, they will Bettle tho claim themselves." Second, on tho matter of boycott we ask your Indulgence. Concerning tho petition that una circulated, nnd freely signed, In Logan, under dn'e of May 10th the South Cacho Cour ler said: "Petitions were presented to every business man for his signature, and tho result was very gratifying, In deed. I'rnctically all signed, nnd tho few who refused put themselves rn record In a manner, that will make them sadder hut wiser for tho fu ture." Then followa the list of signers, and tho article goes on ns follows: "Tho following banks signed: First National and Cncho Valley Hanking companies. Tho following furniture stores and nowspnpers slcned: Lundstrom nnd Spando Furniture companies and Logan Journal." What do you think about 'such threats dear neighbors? It was freely stated by Logan citizens that tho threat was mndo that thoso who wquld not sign would ho published. Was not this threat carried out, and could Bomo of thoso that did not sign hnvo been published moro defi nitely? Does not ovory school boy In Cncho County, say nothing of overy citizen, know that thoro nro other banks, and furnlturo stores, and nows pnpers In Logan City othor than thoso mentioned? And could there bo n more cffoctlvo way of publish Ing thoso who did not sign? In Its last Issue tho South Cacho Courier denies having "singled out thoso who dared not sign" and says tho accusa tion Is "utterly false," and further Bays that "nothing of tho kind has appeared in tho Courlor." Well what about It friends? Docs tho record of tho Courlor not throw tho lie in Its teeth And under such conditions enn you blame those business meu who Blgned your petition from Blgnlng a counter petition? Is It right for tho Courlor to thus brow beat thoso "few w'-o refused" and then make tho threat that their acts In refusing "will rnako thum sadder hut wiser for tho futuro?" Is It right for tho Cour ler to thus publish thoso "who dared not sign" and then sny thoy didn't do It? In other words Is It right to falsify? These questions are ,.11 pertinent, nnd wo ns.k your consider atlon of each of them, and ns far an wo aro concerned wo nre willing to nbldo your decision. Finally what you want, and whot we nil want are results that aro bene ficial to our county. Tho Republican la not an incident in tho controversy. Your editor was perhaps thinking of doing pennance when he said It ".might he difficult .for .i3b to prove our title to n seat ln the heavenly choir,", Ab .far as .he Is .concerned we sbali be .glad to know that his "call ing .and .election is .sure" and that this continual singing "God ln mercy hear my jirayer" has been .answered. Hut these nro .only jovafllons brought ln'.o tho controversy by tho .Jpurlcr to, be cloud Hie Issue. What (we want are results, and fair treatment between man And man. If itho business1 men of Logan who signed your petition want to stay -with It that Is 'tholr business. If tbey want -to withdraw thnt Is also their bvsrncRB mnll rthey rare no doubt rendy to account "to you for such no tions. If there nro 'those who do not want to lgn sncli petitions we take it that you Trill agroo with us that that Is their hnslnesB, and thnt such ought to be in-Ivllegcd to exercise their op tion without being browbeaten, threat ened, nnd puhllslied in the columns of a newspaper. Wo believe tho people of tho south end of the valley feel likewise, and do not think the stand taken by the Courier trnly represents tho public pulse of the good people of south Cache. ONE FOR THE NEWSPAPER MAN. Representative Adiimson of Geor gia recently hnnded out lhe following to tho newspapermen: "I never talk about the neuBpnpcr men, because there nro not only moro of them ln number, but they are big ger in size than "I or my frienda. They could talk about me or the gentleman from Illinois. Whenever they say anr- thing In the newspaper that is not strictly accurate, I ajlread tho mnntle of charity over the poetic license that exists, becauso It Is absolutely neces sary to fill those large papers up with something,' nnd If nbt enough truth happens to fill (heir papera those" enterprising men have a" right to fill up those columns by creating some thing. The smnrtcst Tnen in tho world, except drummers, are the! newspaper men." , A .?. J. ' PLAINTIVE NOTE IN ' WILSON'S SPEECHES. i It Is not possible to get an X-ray photograph of the convolutions of Governor Wilson's brain nor to watch ' tho wheels of his though'p processes' go round, therefore somo of his ex-1 presslons Inspire n dee) psychological ' Interest that might bo dissipated were' one nblo to gaze Into the Becret chnm-1 bers of his being nnd observe what la ' going on thore. The schoolmaster In' politics Is an Interesting If not an I inspiring spectacle, and the follow I Ing from him n few days ngo is wor-' thy of noto: j "I hnvo hnd to ask myself In the' last few days If It Is possible that1 men who have fought besldo mo In n ' good cause have been lured solely by' tho hopo of personal gain through public office For do I not see them becoming my enemies upon their failure to get offlco?" Does I'rof. Wilson suppose that tho whole world regards him as n Moses of statesmanship? Did ho Insult Colonel Harvey, his lntlmato friend, tho ninn who had most to do with elovatlng him o Now Jersey's guber natorial chair, for anything else than "pcrsonnl gain," slnco ho feared that Harvey's support would mark him with tho brand of Wall street? Did he cease his offenslvo criticism of Mr. Urynn nnd begin to fnwn fulsome ly upon him because ho had changed his mind, or was It merely for "per sonal gain?" Did Governor Wilson apply for a pension from n fund that was set apart for really needy nnd superannuated educators for any thing olso than "pcrsonnl gnln?" Has Wilson taken to ndvocntlng with nil his strength every popular fad which ho was onco wont to condemn for "personal gain," or Is It because he has chnnged his views concerning them? Fnugh! It Is utterly ImpoBSIblo for Wood'nhend Wilson to be honest, oven with himsolf? HernldRepubll can. v v v FOREIGN COMMERCF OF THE UNITED STATES AT HIGH-RECORD FIGURES Tho foreign trndo of tho United States In tho flscnl year which ends with next month will show larger totals than In nny enrlier year. Tho 10 month figures covoring the com-merc-o down to the close of April, Just complied by tho Bureau of Sta tistics, Department of Commerce nnd Labor, mako it quite apparent that In both Imports and exports tho totnls for tho fiscal ytnr 1912 will bo tho largest on record. Imports seem likely to approximate 1600 million dollars, exceeding by between 40 and 50 million dollars tho high record )m port year 1910, when tho total was 1.BS.7 million dollora. Exports Bcem likely to approximate 2,200 million dollars, or ; about ISO million dollar more than those of the previous high record'of 2,049 million mado in the fiscal year 1911. This growth In foreign commerce, while common to both imports and exports. Is especially marked ln the export trade. Imports have Increased approximately 850 million dollars since 1896, while exports ln the same time have increased about 1,300 mil lion, the excess of exports over lm ports In the same period Increasing from 103 million dollars ln 1896 to about 600 million dollars In the cur lent flsqal year. This excesso of ex ports of 600 million Indicated for the fiscal year now closing will be larger than that of any earlier years except 1898, 1901, and 1908, in each of whlcl years It was considerably nbovo the 600 million dollar line. The principal articles comprising the 1,600 million dollars of imports in the fiscal year, grouped according to tho approximate magnitude of their prospective totals are as follows: Coffee, 120 million dollars; sugar, 110 million; rubber 100 million; hides and skins, 95 million; chemicals, etc., 90 million; cotton manufactures, fiber manufactures, and raw silk, 50 to 66 million; tin, fruits and nuts, nnd wool, including manufactures, each about 45 million; art works, copper manufactures, raw fibers, diamonds nnd other preclouB stones, nnd wool, between 35 nnd 40 million dollars each; and tea. spirits, wines and liquors, raw cotton, leather, paper, meat and dairy products, furs and fur skins, 8h, cocoa, ranging down ward from 20 million to 10 million dollars each. The most conspicuous Increases, comparing with 1911, oc cur In art works, over 50 per cent; hides and skins, 40 per cent; sugar, 15 per cent; tin, 20 per cent; and coffee, about 30 pe cent. The leading exports and .their In dictated totals for the fiscal year rank about as follows: raw cotton, 585 million dollars; Iron nnd steel manu factures, 260 million; meat and dairy products, 160 million; breadstuffs, 13o million; copper, 110 million; min eral oils, 100 million; lumber, etc., 90 million; cotton manufactures and coal, each about 50 million; ngricultur. al implements, cars and carriages, leather, and tobacco, each about 10 million; and vegetable oils nnd fruits and nuts, between 20 and 25 million dollars each. The largest In creases occur In Iron nnd steel,' about 20 per cent, meat and dnlry products, 20 per cent, and copper and mineral oils, each 10 per cent, the comparisons both ln Imports and exports relating to values only. The, growth ln both Imports and ex ports occur in our trade with every grand division of tho world except Africa nnd in tho trade .with nearly nil tho leading commercial countries. For the fiscal year tho exports to Liu lopo seem likely to ho about 1,350 million dollars, ngnlnst 1,308 million in 1911, the former high record year In exports. Exports to North Amerl ca will npproxlmato 500 million dol lara, against the former high record of 457 million In 1911; and thoso lo South America will probably aggre gate 125 million dollars, against 10s million In 1911, tho former high )e cord In that trnde. To Asia tho year' exports will amount to about 115 mil lion dollars, a total larger than any othpr year except 1905, when Japan was drawing largely upon tho United Stntes for food and other supplies for uso In tho wnr with Russia, and China was Importing largo quantities of American cottons to supply tho short age resulting from the closing of the ports nnd mnrkets of Mnnclmrln, the great Asiatic consumer of cotton goods manufactured In this country. To Ocennlu the exports for tho year will npproxlmato 70 million dollars, against tho former high record of 00 million In 11)11. On the import side, tho totals from all tho grand divisions except Africa will bo larger ln the fiscal year t. than In the preceding year, while thoso from North America, South America, and Anin win i, ably establish new high records. From Kurope the year's Imports will show an increase of about 20 million dol lars when compared with last year, the Indicated total for 1912 bolng oppioxlmately 700 million dollars, against 708 million in 1911 and the high record total of 806 million reach ed In 1910. Imports from North America seem likely to aggregato "J2i million dollars, compared with 307 mil lion In 1910 nnd 305 million In 1911, these being tho only yenrs ln which thnt trndo has exceeded 1300,000,000. From South America tho Imports will probably reach, for the first tlmo In nny flscnl year, a total of 200 mil lion dollars, tho nearest approach thereto having been 196 million In 1910, nnd 183 million ln 1911. Tho Imports from Asia in 10 months of the current year wcro at tho rato of 225 million dollars per annum, which sum, If actually reached, will be about 12 million dollars more than the former high records made ln 1911 nnd 1907. From Oceania the year's Imports arc Estimated at 35 million dollars, belni; 2 million dollars less than those of the high record year 1910, but exceed ing by 5 million those of last year, Shipments from Hawaii, now a cus toms district of the United States are not Included In these figures. The Imports from Africa will show a total of about 24 million dollars for the year, a sum larger than ln any earlier year except 1911, when It ex ceeded 27 million dollars. mm MME. BERNHARDT INCAMILLE The Story of Camllle. Tho interest of all theater goers Is cmtered on the coming of Ucrnhnrdt In "Camllle" and Madame Rojane in "Mho Sans-Gcne", the world's two most famous actresses in a double bill, a tragedy nnd n comedy to be plnyed at the Crystal Theatre, Thurs- dnv nnil Frlilnv "Camllle," by Alexander Dumas, has been tho subject of an enormous uinount of crltlrium In the jtnte ver sion, hut we have yet to oe a discus slon of Its merits that was fair or even keenly discriminating. The Eng lish version sub-titles It "Tho Fate of a Coquette." ThIB absurd name was given It In the Interest of hypocritical morality. Once suppressed by government edict It came near being a still born play, but finally came to life, and was an Instantaneous success. To day It Is the most widely known play. Rebel forces struggle ln the souls of every one of us;, the- extent of the battle ground depending largely upon our experience. Most of us are hu man. Secretly recognizing our many weaknesses, we are of the opinion that wo might have done better under circumstances other than those thut led us Into error, nnd we know that there is good in every woman born, no mntter how the world has treated her. ' This Idea of tho author Is exqul sitely set for in the photodrama "Ca mlllo" as recently staged in tho Bernhardt Theater in Paris and play cd by the world's most famous trage dlcne. Tho portrayal Is that of a re fined woman In rangers of taste the gowns she wears are "creations" nnd her conduct Is little removed from that of our butterflies of society. Thero is nothing of the show-girl in her movements; nothing that could offend tho most exacting of tho'io who think tho stage should prove Us sermons as unentertnlnlngly as the pulpit, nnd nothing to bring the color to tho cheeks of those with the most vvid Imagination. Men sought Cnmlllo's love In vain. She hnd good renson to place small faith in their protestations. Her heart wns rcnlly virgin when Armand came to whisper words of love that would mako every nerve in her body whis per nn Impassioned rpRnnnnn Rh was waiting at tho crossing In her career and gavo Armand her full faith with the simplicity of an unsul lied girl. Tho audience watches tho awaken ing of love almost ns keenly as a mother watches .the unfolding of chnracter ln her children, nnd tho au dlenco wntches tho story sympathotl cally because of the tragic element. It Is against the rules for Camllles to hnvo happy endings but the assured disaster only serves to stlmulato In torest and Is made pitiful by the sin cority of tho social outcasts passion. Can such women truly lovo? W nro not so sharply divided into clae3 cb as theorists and moralists seem -c think. Much ns we fondle the ego tlstlcnl Idea of Individuality wo nie much alike after all. Any of us can love If wo nre hcnlthy nnd the right ono comes Into our lire, nnd wo ar npt to do so despite social regula tlons. People go to see Cnmlllo be causo of Its boundless charity for all humanity. Cnmlllo and Armand nre as mutual ly absorbed as Romeo nnd Juliet, hnppy as two children, when tho blow falls which is to send each Into the barren desert of eternal Bolltud. Cnmlllo sncrlflcps all to protect u young nnd Innocent girl because of tho nobility thnt is within her that has been stirred by true love. With only a taste of tho unfledged freedom of girls cnrefully guarded from such servitude or born beyond Its reach, oho prepares to return to the weary world of purgatorial discipline, a sn. crificial victim upon the altar of hu man betterment. She promises never to see ArmnnJ again and expects her love to die with her nnd being Blck with a dread disenso she loses all hope in the sad cadenco of her misery. Sho sinks rapidly under sickness and her silent misery becoming an angel to others In her last moraonts, and Is thon vis ited by Armand who has learned tho ilHthofherEncrlflce and her truo love, but only to take heEinmTT as she dies.

I A PLAIN STATEMENT" AND A PROMISE An honest man doesn't need laws to make him honest or to keep him so. An honest corporation does not require laws to make or keep it so. Just what constitutes an' &Hi honest man or an honest cor- jj poration is more or less a I matter of varying opinion, I but it is generally conceded I that a man who treats his 1 neighbor fairly, taking no un- 1 due advantage, asking no ex- 1 cess of profit nor misrepre- I senting the goods he has to I sell-selling the best goods 1 he can produce with a fair I margain of profit to himself I is honest. I Now a corporation is no I more and no less than a man I doing business on a large I scale; and if n corporation I can answer that definition, I then we ought to concede I that it is an honest corpora- I tion. Such a corporation I doesn't need laws or coercion I to make it honest or to keep I it so. And with all due I regard to skeptics, that is the I kind of a corporation The I Mountain States Telephone I and Telegraph Company I tries to be claims to be. I It is now giving the best I service it can produce at a I fair margin of profit, asking no excess of interest on the money actually invested. (It has no bonds and no watered stock.) inow, witnout coercion and without demand of law it makes this promise that its rates shall always be as low as possible consistent with good ser ?. If the rates snail at an, lime pro duce an excess of profit they I will be reduced to such a j, figure as ,to return only a fair t rate of interest on the money I actually invested. Keep this I in mind; it is true, and a I promise from an honest cor- I poration. I Did you know that the I Mountain States Telephone I and Telegraph Company has I actually invested in property I $1.15 for every$1.00 capital I on which it pays interest? I Your rates pay interest on I 'the $1.00, not the $1.15. I THE MOUNTAIN STATES TOEPHONE AND j TELECKAPH COMPANY. J
