I WHAT THE RICH MEN ARE DOING A number of years ago there was a great labor strike at Homestead, Fa., and, at the height of the bit terness of the struggle, many strikers were shot down by Pinkertons in the employ of the iron mills. The other day one of the men who owned the mills presented hie son on his mar riage day with $12,000,000 end the daughter-in-law received a check for $2,000,000. To Frick this was a very 6tnall amount The event has brought out considerable comment from the papers and one of them makes this j criticism: The coal miners and coke workers j of th Connellsville coke region will no doubt feel an exquisite pleasure in knowing of these gifts of Mr Frick In his son and daughter Their Joy will he like unto that of the steel workers, and Iron makers, and all that great army of industrial tollers of the steel trust All have their Joy In It For they have worked to get it, they, and their sons, and daughters, and their fathers and mothers, their grandfathers, and . grandmothers, yea, and their grand- j sons and granddaughters. All have 1 toiled to pile up that little $12,000,- I Olio Mr. Frick handed to his son, and that trifling $2,000,000 to his bod '8 bride. Younc Mr. Frick, and his father, may feel pleased at the good fortune, and the industry, and the thrift, and the foresight that founded those mil lions, but It is not likely that they get so much real pleasure from It as those coal miners, and. coke workers, and iron and steel workers, and rail road trainmen, and all that vast army which has spent the years and prec ious lives to accumulate iL Theirs Is the real Joy. If they were not in vited to the wedding, what does that matter? They made the wedding not only possible, but the glittering af fair It happened to be. Here we find well Illustrated the thing that is causing unrest In this country'- A fw men are accumulat ing millions that they scarcely know what to do with, while rountless thousands are wondering how they T.'ill meet their little store bills at j the end of each month. But the world, nevertheless, Is trrowine brighter. More men of I wealth are each day asking them selves: "What do6 all (his money bring nie, If I fall to do right by my fel low man0' The wealthy are finding their con sciences, and thousands of them arc beginning to turn from the worship of .Mammon to a better purpose. We believe that this country Is en tering on a great moral reform which Is grasping the men of big business and Impelling ihem to a nearer ap proach of exact Justice to the laboring masses. We see this in the many declarations of big concerns to no longer resort to lobbying In legisla tion and to cease fighting against organized labor that is not lawless EVERY ONE SHOULD VOTE AT PRIMARIES Tomorrow Is the date of the city primaries. The Standard, without prejudice, uipes the voters to cast their ballots The men who are worthy of be ing placed on the regular ticket for the general election should have the endorsement of a majority of the voters of the city, an endorsement which they cannot obtain If the vot ers stay away from the polls. It Is almost quite as important to make no mistakes In this elimination contest as It is to finally vote for the most worthy of the candidates. The weather forecast Is faiorable to a large vote and there Is no good reason why a big percentage of the registered citizens of Ogden should not be found In the total vote to morrow evening. oo MORE SCHOOL BUILDING A NECESSITY.

The Dee. the Farr and the Hlth School structures have been erected of late years and extensions raado to other school buildings, and still the necessity for more buildings is ur gent. The school rensus proves the growth Since 191 t he federal een sus year, the school population has Increased R0 per cent. Since last year, the number of r-hildren of school age has increased S41. That growth In itself calls for a building half as large as the Madison. At Ogden's present growth, the school board must plan to erect a large school building every two years, or, failing to do so cause overcrowd " THE SEPTEMBER HEALTH REPORT. The bulletin of the stale board of health for September is an unfavor able one from an- Otdeu standpoint. This city Is credited with 39 cases of typhoid, whereas Salt Lake, with ' its larger population, had only five I more cases. There were three cases of whoop ing cough to only seven cases In Salt Lake. Five cases of smajlpox were recorded to eleven cases in Salt Lake. All these afflictions exist in Ogden in greater proportion to population than in Salt Lake, which should not be, as Ogden Is In ;i position to bo the most healthful city in the wodld. Those contagious and preventable diseases should be kept out of this, community. INSTABILITY OF LAND NEAR THE CANAL. A cable hip has reported that ih ocean bed off Panama has subsided nearly 4000 feet. Where at one time the depth of water was 1000 feet there Is now a depth of almost a mile This breaking down of that strip of land which connects North and South America, If continued, will some day supply the world with the startling news that tho isthmus has disappeared and the waters of the two oceans have meL The land surfaces of the isthmus are changing and the repeated earth 6hocks prove the instability of that region oo SOME FIGURES ON THE CANAL The Panama canal soon will be open to traffic and the ships of the world will be Invited to make use of that waterway Here are a few facts on the canal as presented by an expert: Time required to go through the canal, from ten to twelve hours. Freight will be charged $1.20 a ton; passengers are free. American coastwise ships may pass through free of all charges. The canal will save 8000 miles be tween New York and San Francisco. New York is brought 5000 miles nearer Valparaiso aud the west coast of South America. The distance to the Philippine i-i-ands Is not reduced material! Bulk products like wheat, lumber, minerals, wool, hides and wines will get lower freight rales through the crjial from Pacific ports Eastern machinery', textiles, manu factures and finished products will enjoy cheaper rates to Pacific porta Staple products of the South cot ton. Iron, coal, lumber and ship sup plies will have similar advantage to the Orient and Pacific ports Immigration will be deflected in large numbers from New ork to Pacific ports. The cost of operating the canal will exceed $4,(00,000 annually. About 2500 employes will be re quired. To pay Interest on the Investment and operating expenses approxinial3 ly $15,000,000 revenue per annum will be needed. Traffic experts estimates that for the first few years the average an nual tonnage will be 10,000.000, not enough at the $1 20 rate to make the canal self-supporting.

W. D. VAN DYKE. JR. W D. Van Dyke, Jr., the present city auditor, goes be fore the voters of Ogden for re-election to that office on the basis of his service tohe city during the present adminis- ! tration and valuable experi ence lie has gained thereby. Mr. Van Dyke started his career as a telegraph operator j at the age of 1 7 years and had I 10 years' experience in the claims and auditing depart ment of the railroad. This is one measure of his success in keeping the city's reports in such excellent shape. L'ndcr the commission form of government the office of I auditor is of equal importance with that of mayor and com missioner. In fact in some re spects the responsibility is even greater, for the auditor is held responsible for all ex penditures made by the city. The friends of Mr. Van Dyke feel that his record dur ing the past two years is suf ficient evidence of his ability and that it is due to him to continue his services for an other term. Mr. Van Dyke has given his time unsparingly to the duties of his office, and, if re-elected, will continue the methods which have won him commen dation for efficiency.

Oct. 20. The let ter to Secretary of State Bryan in vwi.rh Henry Line Wilson tendered j his resignation as American anibas- sador to Mexico was made public here today by Mr Wilson. The letter was written in Indianapolis, nd., August 25. In part. Mr Wilson wrote: "I have the honor to acknowledge I the receipt of your note of August 14, transmitting a copy of a tele I graphic instruction of the department of suite to the American asbassador j In London, directing him to disclaim j hII responsibility on the part of this government for an Interview attri buted to me. The closing paragraph oi the Instruction referred to states that "President regret exceedingly that a diplomatic official or this gov ernment should have been guilty of such an impropriety ' The last para. atm ph of your note to me states that 'the President do not go farther at this time because he takes It for cr.-.nted thai th , tion bleb has been obliged to lake In this matter will be to you a sufficient reminder of your official oblita'ions.'

Mr Wilson then reviews the cir cumstances leading up to the instruc tions to the ambassador to Loudon. A London dispatch was published In this country August 11, stating tha' oie of the factors determining Brit ish recognition of the Mexican provi sional government was the ' congrat ulatory' speech of the American am bassador on the occasion of Huerta's reception to the diplomatic corps. Mr. Wilson says he did not believe this came from an official British source, and had decided to maintain an attitude of reserve until, on the next two days, he read in the press articles "evidently inspired from ad ministration sources containing ex pressions of gratification over the supposed propitiatory explanation" of the British government. "It seemed apparent lo me that this was the first evidence of your intention to publicly question my of ficial acts." he continues, "and I ac cordingly gave to the press the in terview referred to." "The interview," he declared, could not possibly be construed as an ex pvesslon of the views of this gov ernment as Mr Bryan had already announced Mr Wilson's voluntary resignation. He continues: 'Thereupon with tempestuous haste and apparently prompted partisan ! zeal, you dispatched an Instruction to the American ambassador In Lon ' don direcUng him to apologize for ! language ultered by me which was i not in the least degreo offensive, and which was based eutirely upon the j assumption that the supposed expres sion of the British government was j a malicious fabrication. You thus I hastily proceeded without ascertaln i Ing whether either the supposed ex pressions by the British governmnet or my comment thereon was writ able; and. as has since been develop ed your action caused the greatest I possible surprise to the government 1 of Great Britain which did not know It had been offended and had no ! crficial knowledge of the views at- trilniled -to It. "Thus, through pique, you have i spontaneously and unjustly dlscred ' Ited a diplomatic officer of this Bjpv ; ernment and at the ;nme time h&VS I exposed to the British foreign office the spirit of hazardous adventure which presides over the department i of state and the possibility of errors at any moment in future diplomatic exchanges. President Badly Advised. ' That the President ol the United : States, whom I know to possess high J aud patriotic Ideals, and whose lofty purpose ought never to be questioned hy an American citizen, should lend himself to the hasty criticism of an ) old and tried official ot the Rovern-i-.cnt, upon totally unwarranted and since discredited sources of Intorroa- i t;on, convinces me that he has ben badly advised; and that on.

He asked Mr. Bryan for a denial "and receiving none. I agan requested you to urge the acceptance of my resignation. In reply you clear ly indicated by Inference your desire I that I should remain at my post " Blames Socrctary Bryan Meanwhile, he says, the attitude of the Mexican government toward rei ognition became such that he wired for information regarding thi3 coun try s policy. "After a long delay." he comments, "you telegraphed me, in the president's name, announcing a policy so startling in character, and so at variance with the established "1 traditions and policy of this govern- I ment for 13f years, (hat I abandoned 1 all further hope of luln.nc about a II restoration of amicable relations."
