H POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS H , Tn iii ii ml mi ' i ' " ' B " For Attorney Ocncml H Tho Record is authorized to announce that 1 ALBERT R. BARNES H is a candidate for tho nomination for Attorney H , General, subject to the action of tho Republican H State Convention, to bo hold September 4, 1012. B Fur District Judge H The Record is authorized to announce that 1 GEORGE B. GREENWOOD H of Milford is a candidate for Judge of tho Fifth H Judicial District, subject to the will of the Ropub- H' Mean Judicial convention. Hj For Representative H The Record is authorized to announce that i WILFORDDAY H; is a candidate for Representative in tho Stale H Legislature from Iron county, subject to the H action of tho Republican county convention. H People Easily Forget B Tho hanging recently of soven men in one day H in tho Sing Sing prison and tho storm of protest H that followed it, gave amplo opportunity to real- H izo tho surprising: forgctfulness of the race. H Fivo of tho soven murdorora who were put to H death in tho electric chair, woro Italians who were Hj convicted of cruelly killing a helpless American Hl working woman for a Cow dollars ho was suppos- Hj cd to havo saved from her toil, aftor subjecting j )ior to shameful indignities. Thoso who nover K sec, or if thoy soo. nover lend a word of sympathy Vvrc2s, ,. ,.-jr .-tkun HrUitiHte victims of tho scoVcs of M murdorora whoso crimes aro a daily occurrence, are m always and over looking for i chance to raiso a M cry in dofonao of tho heartless wretch whoso lifo is l forfeited as a partial atonement for his cruelly and B , brutal itv. mi There is in this samo Now York an nvergo t f " one murder each day of tho year. And yet, with Mu tho awful total of 8155 or more persons slaughtered i in ono year, many of them wholly innocent of any V' crimo or oven any serious offense to any ono, not B one-ton th tho protest goes up that aroso when tho B J nowfi of tho execution of the seven murdorora a fl fow days sinco was telegraphed across tho country, fl l Tho thoughts of somo peoplo aro certainly be- fl J yond 'tho palo of understanding. Why any ono m ' should want to savo a man wheirhis hands aro red fl with innocent blood, and blind their eyes and their B I conscionco to a view of his victim lying" helpless H in the grave, is too much of a problem for us to H solve, H The South Should Be Prepared Ml There is no doubt that the c unties of tho fl 4 southern part of tho state are a unit in tho belief B I that to the south belongs ono of the congrcsssmen B to bo choson at the coming election. f The Ropublicn state convention will bo held fl September 5th, at Salt Lake City. Thoro aro at fl present but two active, avowed candidates for B l tho nomination on this ticket from the counties B south, while thoro are more than that number B frm salt i'ak !iin B v However, it is belioved thoro are at least two, B- cloan, capable men in thais section, whoso names j H ( have not been mentiond who would accopt the B ,. & nomination if it were tendered them, but thoso B I man aro not seeking tho office and would go to no B K trouble to secure tho nomination. But should B f oithor be nominated or elected, he would servo the B peoplo to the best of his ability. H Wo make these suggestions, for it is not at all H impossible, and, in fact, is not imp.obabla, that the B Republicans of tho south will not be able to arrive H at an agreement between themselves as to either V of tho active candidnto, in which case it would be H! uocassnry to lose no time in agreeing upon H another for the office, or forfeit the honor to Salt Lake City. H The Republican delegates should fully sense H the responsibility devolving upon them in tho mat- H tor and should not permit their prejudices or prof- H crences to load them into a pitfall where their un- I 1; doing would be the inevitable re suit. Be prepared for surprises; b e broad enough to forget your own county, your ov n candidate, and be ready to center your atrengtl on some other man FROM THE SOUTH there are others-some of the best inthc stateand a m an could be found who would accept the nomintion if it would come to him without a contest. ) The samo is true of the Democrats, They should be prepared to meet an cjmcrgency should one arise, and have plans ready in case no agree ment should bo reached on an active candidate for the. office. . I Wo havo learned of but one man who is being j acivoly menioned for tho office by the Democrats, Harry N. Hays of Richfield is -being mentioned quito freely by his friends, and has a strong very following who believe that ho will havo no opposi tion from tho south. Wilson Speaks Plainly In a recent public address, Governor Woodrow Wilson uttered somo indisputable truisms re garding conditions which confront the people at this time. He shows that ho has a clear grasp on tho conditions which exist, and the one who fol lows his public statements closely and who is at all familiar with his achievements as governor Of New Jersey, will not question that he has somo very definite ideas of his own as to how existing condition should bo met and solved. We quote from his words, as follows: "Plainly, it is a new age," he went on. "It requires 'self-restraint not to attempt too much, and yet it would bo cowardly to attempt too littlo. In the broad light of this new day we stand face to face with, what? Plainly, not with questions of party, net with the contest for office, not with the potty struggle for advantage. With great questions of right and of justice rather - questions of national devclobmont, of tho development of character and of a better business system. The forces of tho nation aro asseritng themselves against every form of spec ial privilege and private control, and aro seek ing bigger things than they have heretofore achieved." Provo Banquets Pride of Iron County Wednesday evening the peoplo of Provo tend ered a right royal recepton to Alma Richards, champion high-jumper of the wfo)L.whQ..raturnod. tho day provios from Stockholm, Sweden, where ho establshed a now world's record in high-jump ing. ' ' Ho was hailed by the Provoites as tho44pride of tho"B. Y. U.".. and they paid him homage i by arranging great program of music and speaking. Wo are glad to see tho peoplo of our sister town showing so much prido in tho accomplish ments of Mr. Richards, but wo do object to the absence from tho program of any reference to the fact that he is a product of Iron county, and that tho particular place in this county from which he comes is Prowan. Tho peoplo of Iron county aro perfectly will ing that their neighbors should make a great noise about Mr. Richards, inasmuch as they haye no real champion of their own, nnd we take this opportu nity to expres to them the thanks of the peoplo of Iron county for their energies in royally receiving ono of our honored citizens. Wo do object, however, to tho Provo Post wel coming Mr. Richards to his "homo town." But wo must expect somo singular statements from that source, for moro crazy peoplo to Provo go than to any other town in tho state. Thoro appears to be a dearth of candidates for public office in Iron county. As it looks now, some of tho offices would have to bo abolished becuse no ono wants thorn. The Record believes its readers to be as intel ligent as any similar number of porons anywhere on oarth, and it is nofgoinjr to insult thoir intol ligonco by making manifestly" gross misstate ments to secure favor. When wo can't find onough good, truthful matters to rely upon, we'll keop silent. Much is being said in some quarters about tho resolution on tho part of tho merchants to place thoir business on a cash basis. No doubt this would bo the better plan if it could be suc cessfully adopted, but to do so will involve a change in policy tnat has boon followed so long that, to use a legal term, "tho memory of man runneth not to tho contrary." It is said by com mercial rating houses that three-fourths of all the business done in this country is on a credit basis.. No doubt it has been a convenient factor in che rapid expansion and increase of business in all lines, but it has been over-dono and should be re stricted, of that there is no question.
