Utah, most of Idaho, and parts of Montana, Wyoming and (Colorado, tho total invesement in manufacturing Is now not less than two hundred millions, a sum just about twice as great as the same ter ritory showed at the last census, tak en for January 1, 1910 Even at that, the figures we have used show a con siderably loss rate of increase than' the census figures indicated for the period previous and we have reason to think that our figures are within rather than beyond the truth The total output of the factories Is not less than thirty-five millions. i ' These industries are no less re markable for their diversity than for their aggregate size In Utah alone the factories turn out about 325 dif ferent articles. Among our industries are the manufacture of shoes and tex tiles, of cement and concrete, of su gar, candles, spices, condensed milk, creamery products, pickles and a score of kinds of canned fruits and vege tables, of paints and roofing, of ma chinery, implements and tools, of fur niture and fixtures and of brick, tile and concrete pipe and blocks, the packing of meats, brewing, printing and publishing, milling, metal and oil refining, and so on to weariness. There is no lack of variety. "Because It Is not generally enough realized on hovs firm a basis our manufactories are operating, wo wish I to call attention to two Items of evi dence bearing on the point To begin with, let us point out that a sharp increase in the number of small man ufacturing industries often spells over-expatislon, because it means the entrance into the manufacturing field of many new factors, all more or less inexperienced, all with their business to establish, and many with a capital I that is not sufficient to allow tho i proper development of the new busl- I Less. That is particularly true of a comparatively undeveloped country I like ours. It may usually be Inferred that there is little soundness in such ; a multiplication of new industries and that a violent contraction and read justment will sooner or later take place. "On the other hand, though one may easily miscalculate his chances when starting a new factory, after he has been operating it for a time and begins to consider enlargements of his plant, his ideas are likely to be preltj sane and clear That sort nf manu facturing growth seldom proves to be mistaken "II is therefore with a great deal of pride that we point to the fact that, while remarkable growth has been experienced, both in tho num ber of plants established and in the amount of the average Investment in them, the Increase In total capitaliza tion has far outstripped the increase in numbers. Of course that moans that the growth has mostly been In those Industries which have boon es tablished for a number of years and in consequence it Is likely to be tho most part very sound "Then again, a moments thought v. ill show that In any enterprise tho number of employes per thousand dol i lars of money Invested will tend to fall as tho business grows, for It is characteristic of growing concerns that in a steadily Increasing degree they substitute machine work for hu man labor. If that ie true, and If wo find tho number of men emplojed rising only about a half as BWlftlj as the total sum Invested, but twice as fa6t as the number of plants in op eration (which is exactly tho situa tion) wo may fairly conclude on this evidence alone that the average size of the units must he Increasing It is obvious that this corroborates our thought as to the stability of our growth as would also the figures con cerning the cost of raw materials and tho value of the finished goods " CHILDREN BEING KILLED BY AUTOMOBILES. Two most distressing automobile accidents occurred in Salt Lako yes terday. In one a little girl was killed, in tho other n boy 12 years old was fatally injured. The fire chief in his automobile driven by his chauffeur was respond Ing to a small blaze Brieflv related, the story of the accident that occurred follows: The tragedy was enacted before th? eyes of more than a score of men and women who were on the corner of Ninth East and Ninth South. Of these Arthur G. Hughes, a barber at 910 E. Ninth South, was first to re cover when he saw the bod of the frail little girl roll from beneath the wrecked automobile Dashing Into the street, he raised the bleeding form of the girl in his arms Her skull was crushed.. Both of her legs were broken. Hughes carried the little girl into Boyle's drug store and urged hor rified spectators to call a doctor. Segweg Paulson. 8 years of age. lit tie sister of Elaine, whom tho latter was leading when the red fire auto mobile crushed out her life, did not grasp the seriousness of the tragedy On the street corner she stood and I looked at her little sister in the arms of the barber. Running to hor home she called her mother Oh! Mother' she cried, "some thing awful has happened lo Elaine something hit her and she s bleeding awfully." Mr. Paulson was homo and snatch ing up his coat, dashed to the street corner, closely followed by his wife and little daughter They dashed into the drug store, but there learned the body of the girl had been removed to the barber shop. Upon seeing the torn body of her daughter, Mrs. Paul son fainted into the arms of a specta tor. Then little Segweg, who had broken the news of the tragedy to her par onts, brought the crowds into tear when she said innocently, "I won't have any little playmate any more," and commenced crying convulsh ely Several witnesses declare the big red fire automobile was crashing electricity!

I down the smooth pavement of Ninth East at speed not less than forty miles per hour Before the machine struck the child It ran south on the east side of the street for some distance, contrary to traffic ordinances So great was the impact when the auto mobile tore into a oirh and steel polo on the west side of Ninth East after it had crushed out the life of the Paulson girl that the big machine was irtuall torn to pieces Before it Is too late, lot us take tho lesson of this horrible tragedy home to ourselves. We do not know that our fire chief drives at 4"i miles an hour We are of the opinion that be does not If he does, he should issue orders lo reduce the speed of the fire fichting apparatus so as not to un necessarily endanger life. Houses de stroyed by fire can be rebuilt, but no one can restore to a mother her lit tle girl after a racing fire engine has crushed out tho breath of life. Of late thero has been much speed ing of automobiles in Ogden We are daily expecting tn hoar of sonic body's child run over by one of our reckless drivers Here is a concrete example of what occurs every day At tho corner of Twentieth street and Monroe avenue children are at play under tho large trees. Occasion all in their games, one of them 6ud denl dashes from behind the trees, pursued to tho street by others. Yes terday an automobile, going twenty five miles an hour, made the turn from Twentieth on to Monroe and by a sudden swerving missed striking a little girl of four Had there heon a tragedy, the father would have been justified In proceeding with a club to beat ordinary common sens into the head of the speeding. Indif ferent careless man at the wheel of that automobile Automobiles go by every day, run ning at 20 to 40 miles an hour, mak ing it unsafe to allow the children to cross the street Complaints come from all over the city of fast automobile driving Ther is only one thing that will check this craze, if the police are not equal to the task, and that is an arrest and trial for murder following tho next death resulting from reckless speed ing. oo BARBER SHOPS OF OGDEN IN THE LEAD. The Technical World, nnder tho heading, "Placing dependence on a broken reed,:' says legislation and the smattering of knowledge as regards the more obvious diseases with which the registered barber Is required to be familiar, wore supposed to safeguard the public against the common dan gers of the barber shop, but recent investigation in France and Germany have revealed dangers not suspected before, and in at least one case a san itary precaution itself has been shown to be a menace. The magazine goes on to recite that one of the alum-sticks used in a for eign shop, on being examined by an expert, was found to contain thou sands of disease-producing germs in each microscopic field. That was in Europe but in Ogden and in Utah, where "the smattering of knowledge'' has been to good pur pose, there is no alum-stick or caus tic slick either, and the barbers are prohibited from employing other than, powdered dry antiseptics, and the1 alum or caustic, if applied, is in that form Europe, it seems, is behind Ogden in sanitary' barber shops oo ' REV.

Of course, the bead of the church is a law break- r a cording to his own sworn state ment.
