Ir will not know- ingly tolerate injustice or corruption , and will always fight demagogues of all parties; It will oppose privileged classes and public plunderers. !t will never lack sympathy with the poor, it will always remain devoted to the publ!c welfare and will never be sat isfied With merely printing news, it will always be drastically independ ent and will never be afraid to attack wrong, whether committed by the ririi or 'he poor. I NOW FOR A PERIOD OF RECUPERATION Samuel Untcrniyer. who was chief counsel for the Pujo committee in vestigating the money trust. Bounded a warning against too much prodding ol the corporations, when he address ed the Economic club in Springfield. Mass.. on last Saturday. He said there had been a sudden and alarm Ing cessation of business all over the country not due- to larilf changes, but to the unctiintles thai the gov ernment investigation have attached to all big business i Mr Untermyer believes mere should come a period of rest, during hlch confidence once more may be restored and he suggeots thai in stead of continuing prosecutions against old offender, the slate should be wiped clean and the work of re forming and strengthening the law to make impossible repetitions of previous offenses by corporations should be begun by granting general amnesty I Mr. Untermyer's program of recon struction is as follows "The currency bill now pending In the senate should be passed "Give the railroads living rates or they will perish while we are refram Ing the laws under which they are hereafter to live ' Abolish fiscal agencies.' voting trusts and interlocking directories. ".Make It a criminal offense for an officer or director ol a corporation to borrow from, or make a profit of. his corporation "Prohibit national hanks and in terstate corporations from having interlocklnc directors in potentlall completing corporations 'Destroy holding companies "Give minority stockholders repre sentation In the directorates of their corporations. "Place railroad reorganizations un der the control of the interstate com merce commission and of the. courts. "Compel the incorporation of stock exchanges so that the books of their members may be subject to govern rrental inspection. Epforce complete publicity of all corporate transactions, and especially require the fullest disclosure of all profits of bankers, brokers and mid- I Special Prices For Christmas.

We agree with Mr Untermyer that the time has arrived when the coun I try needs relief from the constant upset that the many Investigations of big business have brought about. The Investigations were necessary and the prosecutions were imperative In order to bring the large predator. interests to a full realization that they could not go on defying the government and public sentiment without endangering the liberty ot OVery corporate head responsible for the disregard of the common rules of honesty in business. But today there '.b ample evidence of reformation all r,long the line and big business gen erally has yielded to the demands of fair dealing, yet the prosecutions, and rumors of more prosecutions, continue. The policy now should be one ol reconstruction. More drastic laws should be enacted to prevent a repe tition of the abuses of the past but the attacks on the big corporations tor past offenses should cease v should have a year or two ol mending, before there is a further lipping up The whole country re quires the recuperative power of con fidence 00 A PROTECTED INDUSTRY THAT MADE GOOD The Americans have driven the British tinplate manufacturers out Of the Canadian markets Not many i i - have cone by since the first tihplate produced in this country un der a fostering tariff as placed on ilip market. The placing of the tar iff was the subject of campaign ora tory in at least two national cam paigns. The record of the business during the last ten years is a tribute to the wisdom of those who said that protection would build up an industry that could take care of itself In twen t years At one time millions of pounds of Pritish tinplate was shipped to this country Today that product Is ex eluded by the vigorous competition of the home article and. not only thai but since 1901, the manufactur ers m the United States have in creased their exports to Canada from 1900 tons to 42.000 tons and today virtually control the Canadian mar ket. British tinplate plants are now supplying only 12 per cent of the Canadian demand ONE OF THE GREAT SIGHTS OF UTAH. That Utah is rich in mineral re sources is well presented in the last iSBue of the booklei issued by the Manufacturers' Association of Utah in which there is a review of the coal measures the iron and copper depos Its and the hvdro-carbon bodies of the state Descriptive of the copper re sources the following appears "Utah is the home and was the first place to adopt the 6team shovel in working immense porphyry copper de posits- the low grade coppers as they arc called It produced the first ereat low grade mine. In Utah is the greatest copper mine in the world, containing more copper ore that can actually be measured up than any other mine in the world Railroad tracks terrace the side of tide big mountain of ore that is being taken away by steam shovels for a verticle distance of 1600 feet. There are terraces that cut across the face ot this mountain. By a series of zlg zngging back and forth, trains climb to the top of this mountain to earn away ore and waste Recently 29,000 tons of ore were taken out of this property in one day This required 580 cars, and as 20 cars of ore. a load of 1000 tons, Is a pretty good sized train, you can see that 29 trains were moved off the mountain that day Be sides that the same 29 trains had to j also go up the mountain 60 that 5S j trains passed a given point in one day From this great mine which is justly j called the Utah Copper company there is handled 50,000 tons of ore and waste each day. No other place in the world does the steam shovel and ' the railroad work as diligently except on the Panama canal. The 2.' steam I shovels are kept constantly busy dig ging in the ore and the waste on the mountain side that covers the ore body." The Utah Copper property is one of the great industrial sights of the world The titanic work being carried on there should prove a great attrai Hon to tourists An entire mountain is being gradually cut down, and trom this immense mass of material is be ing recovered part of the copper con tents not to exceed 22 pounds to the ton. The workings are i be greatest dem onstration in the United States of the economical treatment of low grail' copper ores OUTSIDE VIEWS OF THE LOPEZ MURDERS The San Francisco Examiner, with rich irony, under the head, "Brutal Treatment of a Noted Assassin.' comments on the bottling Up of Lo pez In a nilue In Bingham canyon, saying: "The sheriffs seeking to capture Ralph Lopez, in Utah, decided on Sunday to batten the mine entrances and then kill the desperado with pois ouous gas "Now, that is no way to treat a distinguished assassin in this en lightened age. To be sure Lopez has j flaiu four men and one woman, but there were inciting circumstances. The woman made him angry And alter he had shot her. the men in sisted upon following him up and making it Impossible for him to get hie regular night's rest. Advanced philosophers know, ot course, that Lopez is not to blame at all He is the creature of environ ment Therefore society murdered the woman and the four men. Ergo, i fcocietv should he imprisoned for life and Lope should be treated with the I respecnui mpaiuy ciuc 10 nis mis fortunes. "And in spite of this clear logic, here are seven heartless sheriffs re- solved to kill this poor victim of i man's inhumanity to his fellow man, just as other brutal individuals some times kill a poor mad dog. who Is merely amusing himself by biting folks When society has been prop erly reorganized by the gentler sex of both gender-, gentlemen Hssarains i will not be subjected to such inhu man treatmem. But at present the public Intelligence la not yet pre par ed to treHt criminals with the high consideration they deserve. 'in fact, most people will actually applaud the Utah sheriffs for putting an end to Mr. Lopez with any means bandy, "The old-fashioned notion that a ruthless savage, murderous beast in human shape ought to be shot down, as a mad dog is shot down, is still prevalent among plain every day Americans, who know nothing of the higher thought and are guided only by common sense. it is sad, pathetically sad Es pecially for the down trodden and op pressed Mr. Lope,, who has not yet killed half as many persons as he would If he were not so heartlessly interfered with. Yes, It is sad, pa thetically sad " The Examiner's Bares rn is to the point, but its statement of the crim inal record of Lopez is In need of correction There was no woman killed, though six men were slain. Adding a woman to Lopez' list ot murders would give to the tragedies a color of romance, but only at the expense of the truth, which a yellow jourual like the Examiner is ready to sacrifice at any time in order to tmbellish a story. oo WHEN MEN LOSE THEIR SELF CONTROL The work of tho h be khonders in Ogden and the wild career ot Raphael Lopez in Bingham bring to mind a number of crimes of outlawry, not the least important of which were the desperate acts of Sontag and Ev- ! ans in the central part of California nearly thirty years ago Sontag and Evans were law ab'd ing farmers who had been ousted from their lands by the Southern Pa cific railroad. The two men set out on a campaign to avenge the wrongs which they charged against the rail road They held up trains, robbed station agents and created a reign of terror, killing a number of officers who were sent in search of them They eluded their pursuers during the greater part of a year, but final ly were cornered and, after a bloody battle, in which two deputies were hoi down, compelled to surrender, being severely wounded, Evans hav ing had an eye shot out and Sontag receiving a bullet In his arm, In ad dition to other injuries. Owing to the feeling that r-xistcl against the Southern Pacific in those uay s rind the extenuating circum stances of their first outbreak, in stead of being executed, the men were sentenced to prison for life Af terwards. Evans, when near the grave was released and later Sontag se cured a parole On last Monday Sontag. who is ag ing rapidly and Is somewhat feeble, applied in person to Governor John son at Sacramento, for a pardon. Ot late he has been a watchman in Portland. Oregon. After being re leased from Folsom prison on parole Sontag became a quiet, orderly resi dent of Portland Deep anger Is not very far rc moved from insanity. Here Is the case ol two tarmers. who might nev er have been other than inoffensive followers of the plow, suddenly made outlaws, and then, when driven at bay, converted into wild murderers through that tirst law of nature sell preservation. Lopez, in a fit of anger, made an attack on a fellow countryman The officer, in making the arrest, fouud th Mexican rebellious and used his gun in beating his prisoner into sub jection. Since then it has developed that that one act turned Lopez from man into bea.st. The pent up hatred sent the desperado Into the moun tains, there to kill or be killed Hav ing committed one awful crime, the taking of blood held for him no qualms of conscience, and so he kill ed and killed. Perhaps he has been mercifully put to death by the fumes of the sulphur smoke In the Andy tunnel, at least let us hope that he has. for he had ended his usefulness to society when, in a brainstorm, he allowed the animal in him to gain master; of his w hole being no THE WORLD'S MARKET NEWS New York X Y..
