I WASHINGTON GARDNER AND OTHER VETERANS. I Ogden was honored Saturday by I the presence' of Washington Gardner, commander-in-chief of the G. A, R. and the other old soldiers of the great I civil war who met in state encanip- t ment. Every time th.e "old boys" meet we 1 are reminded that the years are fleet- ! ing and the day is not far distant ' when the last of the vast army, , which saw service in the struggle ' that preserved the union and served i notice on the world that American i fighting blood was near uncouquer, j able, shall have disappeared. I While they still live, we shoula ' bestow on the veterans the flowers thnt too often are withheld until they have gone beyond; we should make I the most of these opportunities of I G. A. R. rejoicing to prove to the men who yielded up so much for I country that their sacrifices were I I not without appreciation by those I j who have enjoyed the blessings of irf j a united country which they bestowed. IMj oo I) REAL ESTATE DEALS 1 IN OGDEN. P The sale of the Utahna Drug store I corner and all the adjoining property jjorth on Washington avenue to the Idanha, covorlng a frontage of SC j feet, with a depth of 132 feet, which j uas consummated last Saturday, and 1 by which A. R. Heywood becomes the j possessor of one of the very best sites j In the city for the erection of a large business block, said to be un der consideration, is added evidence of the confidence men of money have in Ogden. Mr. Heywood was foot loose and v free to go elsewhere, in fact he had made a tour of Montana, the north ; west, California, Texas and other parts of the country, with an eye t . trained to business, and then he returned home and said, "This is the place!" And Ogden is the place! There is no city with greater un developed; resources, greater oppor tunities, or a brighter future; no city J' ; with present conditions more encour f ; aging. i The things which have Impressed 1 A. R. Heywood, a man of affairs thor oughly In touch with every phase ot j business la this community, must I appeal to others. Strangers, as they come to know the progress being f. 1 made here, will do as Mr, Heywood . n as one tney invest Inspired I , by the thought that Ogden is on a I 1 firm foundation, capable of treraen 1 H dous expansion, and then we shall L 1 have 50,000; and a little later 100, ?A I 00, and 60me day 150,000 Population. 1 uu f THE EXTRAVAGANCES OF T CONGRESS I Senator Reed Smoot'B statement that the appropriation bills for the t conning fiscal year will be $100,000.- ' ( 000 in excess of the appropriations for any previous year, is being quoted extensively and commented on. The San Francisco Chronicle says the people themselves are to blame for these extravagances, declaring: "The fact Is that under the pres sure of the local interests which ex list everywhere the people themselves -. 1 are demanding expenditures vastly in -fi excess of our ability to pay without K great sacrifices and to a large ex J tent for developments In advance of actual necessity. So far as we know, fg all projects which receive favorable W consideration by congress are merl--W torious in the sense that they ought j to be taken up at the proper time, a but many expenditures, of that kind .' 3 have been made many years before ha profitable results from them could i'-iK be expected. 1 "We cannot do at once everything tgjj which ought to be done sometime 0j without most grinding taxation. It tw requires time for mankind to trans- KNOX KNIT I LUSTER LASTS I wo . , sm its m the yarn non- $4j poisonous dyes.

And as for defense, It ip quite within our power to adopt such foreign policies as will be fully In accord with all real national interests and yet make seri ous international controversies moral ly impossible "The fact is that our public extrav agance national, state and local Is the fault of - the people themselves, who aro continually pressing legisla tive bodies for expenditures whose aggregate is wholly beyond our Im mediate means or our immediate ne cessities. And whether we have Re publican government or Democratic government a change in popular sen timent must precede any real attempt at economy. "But congress should recognize, If the people do not, that conditions in this particular year do not justify any increase over previous appro priations of $100,000,000 or any other sum." DEVOTING MUCH SPACE TO OGDEN MAN. . The last issue of "The Progressive" might be termed "The Glasmann edi tion," as the paper is devoted almost entirely to the publisher of the Stand ard. There runs through all the articles animus and prejudice, which is trace able to the fact that the publisher of the Standard, refuses to follow certain- Progressive leaders into a po litical corral such as the natives of India prepare before they start out to capture an elephant. The po litical corral gives evidence of hav ing been built by Moyle, KS &na other clever Democrats who, not only have been elephant hunters In the past, but have been known as head hunters having a natural propensity to lift Republican heads. In closing an article on Hon. Fred J. Kiesel and William GlaBmann, "The Progressive" says: "Bill Glasmann is a true prodigal. He left hl6 father's house and went to live among strangers. The stran gers had no use for him. When he saw that there was no long green in sight he sent word to the old man that he was coming home. The old man answered the message by telling Bill not to be a quitter. But Bill went home, nevertheless. When the old man saw Bill coming he shut the front door, pulled down the blinds and tacked up a yellow flag on the door, and Bill went around to the back of the house and took up his abode in the barn. And the old man was wroth for that Bill did not tarry among the strangers." Not more than three weeks ago, the Progressive contained a statement that Mr. Glasmann would be tendered the congressional nomination of the Progressives on a fusion ticket. Evi dently the "strangers" had made thi publisher of the Standard most wel come and had done much to make him feel at home while awaiting the com ing of that old maid, Miss Democra cy, to whom he was to be introduced prior to escorting over the state. Now The Progressive should not be concerned over the reception which the prodigal is to receive at his "fa ther's home." So far the greeting, even at the gateway, has been most cordial, and the wanderer has been invited not only in through the front door, but has been requested to step into the parlor for a love feast. The Progressive Is not alone In Its frenzy. More than one Democratic editor is grieved. The editor of the Capital News of Boise, Idaho, express es disapproval of Mr. Glasmann's course in an editorial a column long. The Logan Journal devotes muoh space to the same subject. Tho Provo Herald, another Demo cratic organ, voices its opposition. Evidently, the Democratic papers feel called on to help regulate the affairs of the Progressives and pre scribe the course of action of every Republican not entirely in harmony with the Republican party during the past year or more. - ' w INDUSTRIES THAT FEEL FREE TRADE. Pacific coast papers tell of the cur tailing of operations In the California Cotton Mills, a factory located in Oakland. William Rutherford, managing di rector of these Oakland mills, which represent a cash investment of '$1,500, 000, said his company's consumption of Imperial valley cotton bad been reduced, as a result of the new tariff law, from 15,000 to 12,000 bales a year, while the manufacture of burlap had been discontinued.' As a result, many of the spindles and looms of these mills are Idle. This company, which was estab lished in 1883, is distinctively a Call fornia industry. Its cotton came from the fields In the Imperial val ley. Among Its finished .products are 'cod lines' for the Alaska fish eries, and fine towels, In which is inwoven the najne of San Francisco hotels. TJp to the time the beet-sugar industry was crippled by the same Wilson tariff law, these mills also turned out large quantities of. cloth used In the beetngugar refineries In this state. The power used in this plant comes from the Sierra over the wires of the Great Western Power company. Beipg a business built up with re gard to every advantage of raw ma terial, power and market, it should have been able to withstand hostile and adverse legislation If any "Cali fornia manufacturing may continue to exist in the face of these discourage ment. - The announcement that one-third ol its employes have been discharged, its consumption or raw material deci mated and a portion of its work com pletely abandoned, while its stock holders receive no dividends, Is con sequently fraught with Interest for Callfornlans who had hoped to seo manufacturing prosper. "I cannot see where the workers who will come to California with the opening of the canal." says Ruther ford, "are going to find work. Our situation, if it Illustrates the condl tions In this state, is most unfortun ate. One should keep in mind that wc pay considerably higher wages than they pay In the East, and that this is the only cotton mill in the world that operates under an eight-hour-day law. This might have been considered handicap enough; but now on top of this comes a tariff bill thai cuts away our protection from the cheap labor of Europe and India In textile products." With the breaking down of the beet sugar business, goes more than ono other industry, as the foregoing state ment by Mr. Rutherford proves. One of the serious mistakes of the Wilson administration, as seen by the, west, is the destruction of the beet sugar Industry which the new tariff bill has made certain. Ogden, with California yes. and all the rest will suffer because of this legislative blunder uu SUPERSTITIONS OF A GIRL'S EDUCATION. (The Literary Digest ) The fatal weakness in nearly every present plan for the education of girls Is a lurking assumption that girls are not to be made lo realize as boys are that they are being educated for a business which must last as long as life lasts. The writer who sees the education of our girls in this light "Mary Leal llarkness a teacher of Latin, by tho way. sees also that "they are not taught that a definite purposeful share In the outside world's work is a privilege, not a mis fortune." She belleves.that "the only way in which such a state of feminine mind can be made general is by broad ening woman's education on the pure ly, intellectual side," which she has tens to say doesn't necessarily mean more Latin and Greek, for she confess es herself "open to conviction that the result can be better attained by 'sci entific' bread-making." One thing that arouses her protest Is the fact that "superstition begins to hamper a girl's education almost at the very beginning, and one of the first forms which it takes is 'consideration for her health.' In The Atlantic Month ly (March) she begins by pricking this bubbie: "So far as the normal child is con cerned, his and her brain is nat urally as active as his body, and It is not 'crowding,' nor yet 'overstimu lation,' to give that active and ac quisitive brain material worth while to work with. Therefore, the pa thetic picture which has been recently painted in certain periodicals of the lean and nervous little overworked schoolgirl may be classed, I think, among the works of creative art ra ther than among photographs taken from life. Such pictures, as art. may rank very high, but do not de serve good commendation as a con tribution to the science of education. I am not saying that there are not many abominations practiced In our schools, especially of primary and secondary grade; but they are not in the direction of overeducatlon " The thing against which she prays to see a mighty protest is the wast ing of children's time and the dispo sition of all their innate powers of concentration through the great num ber of studies of minor (not to use a less complimentary adjective) edu- catlonal value, which Is now one of the serious evils In our schools. She finds the evil bearing more heavily on the girls than on the boys. oo CHILD HEIRESS HELDBYPOUCE Courts to Determine Who Is Legal Custodian Father or Grandmother. Chicago, 111., March 16. The courts were asked today to determine wheth er a grandmother or a father should have the custody of a three-year-old child who is said to be the heir to many thousands of dollars. On the petition of Mrs Harriet L. Janney, who, with her grand-daughter, Virginia Ford, the child heiress, de tained last night by the police on telegraphic advices from Philadelphia, Judge Walker in the criminal court today issued a writ of habeas corpus applicable to both tho woman and the child. Mrs. Janney and the child were ta ken from a train. She told the po lice that she was taking the child to its mother in Los Angeles. The police acted on a complaint from the child's father, William H. Ford, a Philadelphia civil engineer. Mrs. Janney asserted that her daughter, the child's mother, was di vorced from Ford several months ago and that the court awarded the cus tody of the child to the mother. Tho petition for release set forth that the two were detained without legal warrant. (Ml Lead. New York, March 16 Lead Quiet, $8.944.05. London, 19 pounds, 7s 6d. Spelter Quiet, ?5.255.30.

Her de parture became known early today. It was 6aid this action was taken at her request on orders on General J. Chase. "Mother" Jones was taken to Den ver. The transportation of "Mother" Jones from the strike district came after the woman labor leader had declared her Intention of leaving the district permanently. General Chas has said ever since her arrest that she was at liberty to leave when she desired The military authorities proceeded with the utmost secrecy to remove "Mother" Jones and the an nouncement was not made public un til today. "Mother" Jones was arrested at a hotel here January i2, after having been deported from the district the week previous and told not to return. Since her confinement several efforts have been made to secure her re lease. Denver, Colo., March 16. Adjutant General John Chase confirmed today the report from Trinidad that "Mo ther" Jones had been sent out of the strike zone, adding that she was somewhere in Denver. ' He stated that the action was la ken at the request of "Mother" Jones. - When located "Mother" Jones was in conference with Mr. Hawkins. From the hotel where she regis tered it was learned that Bh.e arrived shortly after 7:30 o'clock this morn ing. Soon thereafter she left her room and it was nearly three hours later that she finally was located in consultation with her attorney. In view of the arrangements for "Mother" Jones to give out a 'state ment later, John Lawson of the Unit ed Mine Workers said he preferred not to discuss the case In detail but stated tLat in his opinion it was u "case of deportation." Lawson added that "Mother" Jones was accompanied- to Denver by Colonel W. A. Da vis of the National Guard of Colo rado and by another man whom "she did not know." Wn't of Habeas Corpus.

Questioned closely, General Chase admitted that "Mother" Jones had not promised not to return to the strike district, but came to Denver "because the governor had intimated that ho vould confer with her." Chase added that "if she did return to the district she would be rear rested." oo IRATE MILITANT KNOCKED DOWN Attacks Prison Commissioner With Dog Whip Doctor Responds With Blow. Glasgow, Scotland, March 16. Dr. James Devon, prison commissioner for Scotland, when attacked today by an irate militant suffragette armed with a (jog whip, took the law In his own hands and knocked his assailant down with a well-aimed left-handed blow. The woman, whose identity was not learned, met the prison commissioner at the entrance to the Duke street prison and belabored him over the head and shoulders with her whip. Mr. Devon, who is an advocate of forcible feeding and is bitterly oppos ed to what he considers the farcical release of suffragettes because they are suffering from the effects of "hunger strikes," promptly knocked her down. The woman was picked up by a policeman and placed under arrest but Dr. Devon refused to prose- j cute her and she was released. Nine Railway Coaches Burned. BirraingKam, England, March 16. Nine coaches belonging to the Mid land railway were burned by a suf fragette arson squad early today at King's Norton, six miles from here. Suffrage literature was found littered about the vicinity. w THE WORLD'S MARKET NEWS WALL STREET New York, March 16. The main movement during the morning was C downward, although fluctuations of individual stocks were at variance with th.e general trend. Weakness of a few issues exerted an influence elsewhere, checking a tendency of recent sellers to make re-purchases, and by noon tHe whole market was ( heavy. 7. Tho pronounced weakness of Kan- B sas and Texas preferred gave rise to I rumors concerning a possible change in dividend policy and the stock- sold within a fraction of its low record for ten years.

CHICAGO GRAIN Chicago, March 16. Windy, dry weather in Kansas had a bullish In fluence today on wheat. The trade was uneasy over possible serious harm from the blowing out of the winter crop in districts where the soil is not tenacious. No rain seemed to be in prospect for a week in the southwest Opening prices, which were unchanged to l-8c lower, were followed by an all-around advance. Active buying on the part of lead ing houses put strength into corn. The strength of wheat was an incen tive. After opening unchanged to l--ic up the market scored a further gain. There was an absence of selling pressure on oats. Accordingly prices climbed with wheat and corn. Plentiful receipts of hogs lowered provisions. First sales ranged from 2 1-2 5 to 7 l-2c down and the mar ket later gave but little sign of a rally. Later the market reacted owing to an Increase of the visible wheat sup ply and to reports that crop injury would be confined in the main to a few districts of Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. The close was nerv ous, at a range of a shade off to 3-S l-2c up, compared with Sunday night. Commission selling, on the advance, however, more than wiped out all the grain in corn. Eastern call was poor. The close was steady to l-4c net low er to a shade advance. South Omaha Livestock. South Omaha, March 16. Hogs Receipts 8000; market lower.
