Wo aro reprinting this letter so that the 7 people can sco tho stand some of our '. Utah women take on slurs and slan- ders. t "Editor Herald: May I say a few wo'Jds about tho sentence a league lo enforce peace? A leaguo to enforce peace is wrong to begin with. That was what Satan tho son of tho morn lng wished to do at tho beginning of tho world. ' In the council In Heaven when you and I and all tho peoplo of M the world were there with God, Sat an proposed to como to earth and forco the people to bo good, "And .felvo mo the honor," he said. Jesus ,Jr Christ said ho would give peoplo Ihelr freo agency and persuado tho people to accept God's laws ."and thlno be tho honor nnd glory," he said. Ono third of tho people In theisplr lt world followed Jesus Christ and two-thirds listened to tho yersuastoa u of Satan. You anil I there rejected Satan's plan of force. Therefore why should wo adopt a plan at forc ing the nations to bo good now? "Why should wo be enforced Into a way of living that by a majority of votes, may be entirely different to our ideals. Tho first acts of the proposed league are to countenance wrongs, which are morally against America Ideals and beliefs, which aro -no-grasping of weaker territories." If the league In the beginning counten ances Japan taking Shantung, with the hope, as B. H. Roberts said In his speech in the Tabernacle Monday night, that Japan will be persuaded in the future to return Shantung to China, what may wo expect from fu ture conferences, to keep peace at the conterenco and in the league? Aqd If Mr. B. H. Roberts, a man of the same religious bollcf as Mr. Jj Clark, can cast such slurs and vltup CrJw orations on tho head of a sincere ad I Tocat t Jesus Christ's methods, which are "to love our cnomtcb," and W , God will do tho punishing. Not "an f. eyo for an oyo and a tooth for a A ' tooth," which makes the enemy comw 1 back again for "for an eyo for an I eye and a tooth for a looth." I If such reflections aro cast in a holy houso of God, what can yon expect in a league 'of nations? Major Clark was a gentloman. He cast no slurs f was willing to sacri fice tho victory of his party rather than have America nccopt entangling alliances both Washington and Lin coln, advlsod against. Ho tried to avoid hurting tho feelings, of anyone. Mr. Roberts did not. I say, If a man can ncouso n brother of being a pro German, which is utterly false, what may we expect lo a league of na tions, where only part" of tho repre sentatives bcllove In a God, the samo I " Jfrthe Christians? What may we I 2iyy oxpoct where their grievances of not ' Kjr being received on an equal race basis exist? What can wo expect of auto I ciatlc, monarchic nations, who liavo I more votes than wo? t Thoy will try 1 to Emopeanlzo us. Who Is more nu ll tocrntlc than England In keeping Ire I land from becoming a republic? Can I wc Inculcate. American ideals into a I nations with more votes than wo? I What has boon our experience In I tho past, Wo bcllevo other nations I Ideals of liborty and free agency arc I far inferior to ours, but they believe 1 their methods aro superior.

It has been prophesied that tho govern ment of the United States should hang by a thread. It seems that this Is the time. Unices wo keep out of entangling alliances wc shall have thg greatest war In history; whoro each nation will bo struggling for supremacy, and only Jesus Christ can calm the lurbulont emotions of the world by saying, "Peaco, bo still." I ELIZABETH CUTLER JENKINS President Wilson Fails To Make Deep Impression At Omaha According to David Lawrence, whom the Salt Lake Tribune has" en gaged to report tho Prcstdont's au dresses, the Picsldent failed to make a deep Impression at Omaha. In Ins report of the Omaha meeting as giv en In the Tribune of tho 9th, Mr. Lawrenco says: "President Wilson did not make much of an Impieaslon at Omaha. Ills audience was Interested nnd oc casionally enthusiastic, but much of Mr. Wilson's argument went over their heads. Tho street crowds showed surprising apathy. It seemed more like Columbus than any other place visited. Little of the rlp-roai-Ing enthusiasm of Don Moines or St. Louis of Kansas City came out of the multitudes who lined the streets, awe struck or sat respectfully atten tive In the big auditorium. "After tho meeting talked with several influential Republicans nnd some Democints and the concensus, of opinion was that Mr. Wilson had not advanced much that was new or. soul stirring. I Inquired whether the people In Omaha had been reading preceding speeches of the President, and whether tho ground work of his argument was not already familiar to thorn through the newspapers. They said perhaps that has somothlng to do with It but they Just couldn't tell why Mr. Wilson who really set the town going In a frenzy of enthu siasm when he was a candidate In 1912 and again when he visited Om aha on his preparedness tour In Feb ruary, 1916, didn't arouse tho same fervor thjs time. AN EDITOR'S OPINION One editor whose newspaper ad mirers Mr. WIlRon nnd who Is him self a supporter of the leaguo of n tlons. was of tho opinion that tho President's subject didn't Interest tho people very much and that try as Mr. Wilson might to make thorn think i n world crisis was on, thoy believed tho war ended last November and that this processes of unscrambling 'in Europe would In due course re habilitate tho continent. Ho saw ov orywhere a dlstlncllnatlon to analyzo tho treaty but an Impatience to get it out of tho way. Practically the samo viewpoint of tho Impatlonco of the peoplo was given by somo leading Republicans. Thoy couldn't understand tho sen nte's procrastination .'Wo'ro with Wilson on this Ibsuo, Lut mind you, wero hot with Wilson on this Issuo. nnd If ho runs again ho won't got Democratic support either,' was tho way they expressed It. Again nnd again an undortono of political ap prehension Is encountered among Republicans who hesitate to endorse Mr. Wilson's Journey or lend them selves to tho processes of persuasion which would help get tho treaty rati fied becauso thoy somehow believe ho may shatter n precedent and run for a third term. BACK OF Till-: FOLD Those who think tho lenguo issuo will bo out of tho way In a few months, go ahead in confldont sup port of tho .leaguo, feeling thnt thoy will have plenty of timo to show their community's that thoy bnvo not swallowed Wllsonlsm hook, bait and sinker, Just becauso thoy want to sec tho leaguo of nations established. I was told by a democrat of national prominenco in Iowa that most of the Republicans who voted for Mr. Wil son In 19 1G has gone back to tho fold and that mistakes In Washing ton had turned away some Btaunch Democrats. , It is truo that Republicans pre dominate on tho reception commit Itco as Mr. Wilson moves westward, and ho helps to relievo these Indivi duals of future embarrassment by stressing his own political disinterest edness and nonpartisan vlowpolnt to ward the leaguo Issue. But Is Is clear that the lenguo of nations In Iowa and Nebraska Is gotting whole Bonio Mipputt from Republicans, In spite of tho president, rather than because of him. Many men told mo they though It undignified of tho president to chainctcrlze senators as 'contemptible quitters. ' Not that somo of the men who have been lam basting Mr. Wilson didn't desorvo such eplthots In return for tho un kind things and ugly imputations which they have thrust at him but somehow they do not expect tho president to descend to the level of his extreme opponents. CJKTS A "I1IO HANI)" "On the other hand 'put up or shut up' gets a big hand everywhere and -the hit 'em hard kind of speech makes a favorable impression with the crowds who aro immediately un der the spell of the presldont. Rca'J in cold type, however, as tho great majority of Americans aro getting the speeches, tho ultimate Impression Is certainly not a good one, Judging from the effects to bo found In Oma ha of tho remarks made by Mr. Wil son on the days preceding. "The president himself comes In for much prnlBO as tho crowd files out. I overboard many of tho pas sing remarks. 'What wonderful English: what a magnificent flow of language and how easily ho tnlks.' i On the fnco of his audiences, too, nre smiles as occasionally tho president uses a vernacular phrase. They seem pleased to learn that tho man whom thoy had grown to believe wns a re cluse knows the phrases of poker or tho Blang of colloquial speech. They nro flattered as ho says 'I owe a re port of what I did only to you.' CHEEK TO THE ECHO "And they cheor him to tho echo when ho cxclaluiB: 'I would consider myself recreant to every mother and .father, every wife and sweetheart In .this lountry If I consented to tho end ing of this war without n guoranteo . that there would bo no other.' But .they look on with a sort of Impressed .wonder as Mr. Wilson, with drama-, tic touch declares: 'If I felt tunc 1 1 .personally In any way stood In tho way of this settlement I would gladly ,dk that It might ho consummated, t becauso I have a vision that If this thing should by somo mishap not bo .accomplished there woiId rest for ever upon tho fair- name of this peo jPlo n stain which could novel- bo cf- faced.' , "Ono would think that emotional appeal of this sort would stir men to I outbursts of forvent approval. Cer- ,tnlnly Mr. Wilson's oratorical pow ers aro extraordinary. But It scorns as if thero Is a natural reaction now adays to all patriotic appeal. Pcr haps It was tho war, with Its pleth ora of liborty loan speeches and ex hortations to sacrifice, but the old i Fourth of July stuff doesn't get tho FAIR OFFICIALS MADE TRIP OUT IN COUNTRY On Monday tho omceis of the Cache Cunly Fair association visit ed the best livestock herds In the county for tho principal -purpose of securing a good display for the Coun ty fair September 23 to 2fi. Tho officers wero well pleased with their visit and they expect, one of tho larg est and best exhibits of Holstoln cat tle over exhibited at tho county or state fair. Besides there will bo many flno Jersoys, somo Shorthorns, nnd Herefords. Dairying which Is one of the chief Industries of the county, will bo well represented nt tho fair. As for livestock It would bo almost Impossible to hold a county fair with out Richmond, Two or more car loads of flno dairy cattle and some stallions will como from Richmond alone. Tho Bnllnmoor Farms, owned by tho Cnlno Bros, will have their us ual flno hoid of pure bred Jersey cattle and Ilerkshlio hogs. Thoy have somo of tho best bred Jersey lu the country. Two flno pure bred Holstoln cows, owned by Mr. C. L. Munk, besides n well hied bull and other young slock will make their first visit to tho county fair. Mr, Funk Is perhaps tho largost dairy man In tho county nnd he will have two puro bred HolsteliiH that have been on atest for ono year and have broken the records In tho state tor quantity and butter fat. Without a doubt Mr. Funk has one of the best brod herds In tho state. The Nelson Bros, known all over tho Intermountaln country for breed ers of flno puro bred Hoistelns will be present with somo good cows. Mr. P. N. Nelson has an aged bull that would) furnish tho keenest competi tion with any In tho state. He has one two year old heifer producing more than sixty pounds of milk each day. Mr. Ncph'l Nolson still has some flno cattle and will bo In tho lineup with his herd. Mr. C. 55. Hnrrls has a flno Hol stcln bull that will make an Inter esting lineup with the ono owned by Mr. C. L. Funk and Mr. Nelson. Mr. Harris Is ono of tho vlco presidents of tho association and ho will bo re bponslble for the many fine exhibits from Richmond. Mr. Hnrrls is an ardent worker, nnd enthusiast for tho inir. .Mr. Sam Telford and Alma Hill yard will have two flno porcheron stallions on exhibition. Conqueror is one of the best In oil horses In the state and he has many good offspring Mr. Miles or Sinlthflnld will have on exhibition one of the best Bel gian' stallions In the county besides a flno bull. Other exhibits are ot pected from Sniithfleld. Hyiln Park will be strongly ropio Minted with many flno mares and colls besides two flno Belgian stnl llons. A well bred poieheron kept by Mr. Rennet of North Logan but owned by Hyde Pnik Interests will he a good competitor In his class at the fair. Hydo Park will also have gntllng applauso it used to get. "And, while men and women leayo tho hnlls convinced that Mr. Wilson Is working for n great and good j I cause, thoy do not Immediately per celvo tho difference between 'mild roscrvntlontsts' and unqualified sup porters of the covenant, and thoy aro not bestirred to go out and worry ov er the possible fall of tho republic if some senators Insist on reservations which tho presldont himself claims aro merely a change lu language but not In meaning."
