I LAND BEING RECLAIMED AT GREAT EXPENSE Wnter is being pumped from Utah lake and conveyed through a canal ten miles long to the lands in Utah and Sail Lake counties. Powerful centrifugal pumps, oper ated by electric power are lifting 40 Becond-feer of water, which 16 to ro- 1 claim thousands of acres of land. Wherever an acre of land can bo redeemed, the work of reclamation is proceeding and, fortunately, Weber county of late la moving along In this j same spirit of uplifting, layinK the foundations for n greater acreage of land to be watered and made to pro vide new homes I MOUTH AND THROAT WASH ESSENTIAL The form of grippe which has af flicted many during the winter may be guarded against, doctors say, by a cleansing wash for the throat and j mouth, iu fact physicians are now recommending aa a prophylactic the ' regular use of a germicide 6uch as j peroxide of hydrogen in mild form aa a gargle. Colds, la grippe, pneumonia, diph theria and many other diseases may bo warded off by treating the mouth and throat to a w ash a6 regularly as the teeth are cleansed I THE CARTOON THAT GAVE OFFENSE On another page of this Issue of the Standard will be found cartoons ou the suffragists which Rev. Anna Shav.' declares caused the inBults and riota during the parade In Washington the day before the inaugural. The cartoons are reproduced not for the purpose of exciting ridicule, b-it ap presentations of the clever work of newspaper artists. If available we would publish as a companion piece the cartooning In de- I fense of woman's rights That the cartoon 1b a powerful weapon when produced by talented artlsta must be admitted and the suf fragists who have complained in this instance add their testimony to that effect. oo SHALL WE HAVE A PIEBALD RACE OF PEOPLE? Treating on the subject much as the Standard did yesterday a writer save "America for Americans, like for like, a homogeneous people, not a pie bald one. a god-like race of white men. I say to the California legislators, God speed you If it does not 9eem gooo. that whole settlements, whole valleys and pei haps finally whole districts shall be occupied and administered by an unlike and alien race, worthy men though they be, the time-to-act Is now! This 19 not a question of brotherly love or Christian charity, but of the bringing forth of a now people out of the mighty birth throes of 140 years gone and no telling how many lo come. Shall we be a clean race, a white race of the pure blood Or, shall we be a white and a yellow, a bluo and a green?'' That Is the great problem one of race difference. The Japanese can not be assimilated aa are Europeans, lend, if Ihey come her- in great num bcru. B serious clash must result No foreigners. In small numbers, are more desirable than the Japanese, but by the thousands, displacing tha whites and gaining a mustery, thus-' Asiatics are a menace SUGAR QUOTATIONS IN THE STANDARD The Standard, up lo a shori time ago, published the wholesale price of sugar. Of late, th loc.il quotation have been omitted, but the Now York price list has been printed. This omission has brought the following communication Editor Standard: Until recently, the Standard and Examiner have quoted wholesale prices of sugar on the Ogden market. Of lato such qoo tations have not been givoD. Wby are they not printed as heretofore.' H seems to me an omission of some considerable moment, as market quo tations are a valuable feature of a newspaper. If you can not quote the Ogden and New York markei on sugar. Is It because of trust dictation, or from desire on your own part noi to have such quotations compared? "If mv questions have no lotiml tlon in fact, please tct mo right Can vou not again give said quotations " .Signed i "J M. WRIGHT." 3224 Lincoln Ac The local wholesale quotation of sugar Is fixed by Joseph Geoghegan in Salt Lake, a representative of the sugar interests and is based on Sew York sugar prices. The Standard regularly presents the New York quotations. The fact that the Standard prints i he eastern prices proves there is nothing to hide, although if there is shown to be any demand for the lo cal list that too will reappear The insinuation that the Standard might be Influenced by the trust is not well directed. This paper is one of the most Independent publications in the United States, and our read ers will bear us out In this statement. Had the Standard been a trust -controlled organ. It never would have be come an advocate of the l'rogre6slvu principles and the Progressive can didates. Our place would have been with the old-line politicians Wc are of the opinion that the su gar people are wholly indifferent as to whether sugar is quoted in the daily papers. REGRET THE LOSS OF THE BOND ISSUE The Standard feels that a mistake has been made In voting down the High 3chool gymnasium bonds. This paper did not make a campaign on the bond Issue, because we held to the opinion that the high school 8ide was being well cared for. the re ports from that source forecasting an overwhelming sentiment in favor of the bonds We fear that the high school will suffer in prestige, if that institution )t prevented from keeping up with other schools, and one injury which will result is this Every pupil enrolle.l In the high schools draws from the state funds $16 a year If the school is unable to hold its own because of greater attractions at other institutions of learning, the revenue to be derived from state sources will be lessened. This Is what the Standard would have A gymnasium for the high school that would be a boys and girls' club, open to all the children of the city, where young people could gather evenings under strict supervision, the voungsters to be called for at appoint ed times by parents Then we would enlarge on the idea and make a part of the gymnasium a physical culture club for the men and women of the entire cit Some such Institution is needed as la part of the city schools. There is some consolation in the knowledge that even though the high school has met with a backset, the VS eber academy promises to gain its ambition, which, in a measure, will give to Ogden a gymnasium which Will be a credit to the community ou Machinists at Toronto. Can. will make an effort to secure .10 cents an ' hour and a nine-hour day. I Too Busy to write Ads. j I I Store Jammed With Bar-1 I I gain Seekers.

Finally the American lady beard of the trouble and slu- recalled that & ery morning her charge had asked permission to play in Ihe corrldoi. She watched the girl unobserved from the doorway the next morninK and was amazed to see her snatch the ba con and conceal It under ber coat while the sentry was making his mlli i;,ry match up the corridor When fonTronted the little girl ex plained that she liked bacon, but she had always been careful to leave som fat for the duchess.

Mr Bodkin has conducted the case for the government at many of the suffragette trials. He It was who pro ceeded against Mrs Pankhurst. In tha midst of this trial he was called from his bed at 3 o'clock one morninK by a telegram which staled that his of fices in the Temple were burning! Without awaiting to complete his dressing Mr Bodkin flung on an over '0:it pud was driven at high speed through the deserted streets from his' j home in the pdge of London to the Temple. Arrived there he found all peaceful and dark The prosecutor 'had little doubt as to what agency to attribute the hoax, but he was dou hly convinced when, as he climbed ( into his ear for the drive home, ho: 1 hcar.i a mocking feminine voice from the direction of the Embankment cry, I Votes '"or Women " The next day Bodkin made his ad ' drets in the Pankhurst case and some 'of the sevenn of his denunciation of the suffragette tactics has been at I tributed to his early morning vlsiuto his offices.
