Two rt.ih Industries ar? feeling the
effects of Democratic free trade One
is the Knight Woolen Mllli at Provo
and the other the beet sugar indus
try in Ogden and elsewhere through
out the state. A dispatch from Provo
all the employes oi the woolen
mills have been notified that in ordcr
to prevent the laying off entirely ot
I a large number or the closing of the
mllle indefinitely, they would be put
on :i -thort shift, five days n week. I
which means a reduction In weekly
earnings of 36 per cent.

I ago the woolen mill;? company in
I Provo underwent a partial reorganlsa
1 tion and increased its capital stock in
anticipation of meeting the depres
sion that would follow the enactment I
j of the new Democratic tariff law.1
J Since that time the mill has been
I"-" ""6 -ju i muBi economical basis
and expenses have been cut at ever;
I possible point. Some of the men eni
I ployed have been working for $35
to $40 a month and it was only after
representatives of the state depart
ment of labor had spent considerable
time here that they were able to com
I pel the mills to obey the state mini
if. mum wage law.
1 lie first severe blow to the Provo
i' company following the enactment of
' the Underwood tariff law was the
falling off in the demand for Macki
I naw woolens, for which there was
formerly a demand amounting to $20.
000 to $30,000 a year from the north
ern states. This business has now
i faiien to $3000 to $4000 a year and the!
1 reason given is that because of the
I enormous infiux of English woolens,
the woolen mills of the east have
taken to the manufacture of the
goods, of which Provo formerly made
a profitable specialty.

I crippled) the beet sugar business Is
fating ruination dispatch from
Washington declares all hope of i
partial restoration of the duty on
n. w sugar has been abandoned by
the beet sugnr interests as a conse
quence of official declarations made
bj Secretary Redfield of the depart
ment of commerce and labor, and
Oscar Underwood, chairman of the
v raj a i:nd means committee of the
bouse of representatives. Both have
stated that no change In the tariff
law Mould be matin during the incumb
encj of President Wilson
Both of these leaders of the ad
ministration forces made these state
monte after discussing the subject
with the President, and both asserted
that he would veto any attempt to
revise the laws. The government
fe?.rs to reopen the tnrl'f question 'n
ahj of its phaeK because its leaders
,ir iiware that the general dissati?
faction with some of the provisions
of the law would merely lead to a
protracted attack on the measure In
Its entirety. The failure of the in
ctme tax law and the other fiduciary
measures of the Wilson administra
tion to provide revenue sufficient to
meet government expenditures, and
thu utter demoralization of trade
whic.i ha? followed their enactment
are ignored by Washington, which as
sumes to believe that ultimately they
frill work out to advantage
Secretary Redfield is quoted as say
j i"g:
I consider that the press will be
doing a public service by letting the
public know that there is absolutely
no chance for anybody to get through
any legislation looking to a change In
the fugar tariff. There seems to be
an organized bureau at work here in
Washington propagating reports for
stock jobbing purposes. To the ef
fect that such legislation is in pros
pect I have received a great number
of inquiries based on the assumed
.significance of the department in
quiry I have referred to I talked
with the President today and you can
rest assured that he will veto any
measure looking to any sort of change
in the tariff as it stands.'
Representative Underwood was f ul
ly us explicit in detail of a change of
attitude of the administration He
declared that there would be no de
ficit in the revenues when the income
t&x tor next year is collected, and
that the hopes of the beet sugar
growers might as well be abandoned
now, because he had been assured by
President Wilson that no legislation
would be tolerated that sought to
amend the tariff act in any of its par
ticulars. This is the most serious blow that
has been struck at agriculture in We
ber county and other parts of the
state where the beet industry occu
pies a very large percentage of all
the cultivated land. This year there
are 7500 acres of beets in the dis
trict tributary to the Ogden factory,
with a prospective average yield of
fourteen tons to the acre, or a total
of 105,000 tons, worth $5 a ton, or j
$5J5,000. If the administration in
sists on placing thi6 industry on the
free trade basis provided for in the
present tariff law then hereafter
all that great revenue to
the farmers will be lost'
until they can find some other crop
to supplant, the sugar beet, and, in
audition, the factory will close and
as much more money be lost to local
people in the form of payrolls to era
ployes and dividends to stockholders.
Count Alexander M. Loohwitzky. 1
one of the speakers at the local Chau j
tauqua, has a lecture on Russia, his i
native land, which, if it is not tho
extreme of exaggeration, calls for an
international protest against the Czar
and his government.
We are not to a position to contra
dict Count Lochwitzky but it does
not seem possible that any great num
ber of people, calling themselves civ
ilized, would submit to the treach
ery, distrust and brutalities described
by this Russian.
We know the Jews hae been
harshly treated because of racial and
religious differences and that the
plots of Nihilist and anarchist have
brought into existence a vast secret
service and sweeping espionage, but
that the whole of Russia should be
given over to intrigue and murder Is
almost beyond belief.
Sometimes we are inclined to 6peak
harshly of politics In Utah and to
denounce our officials for failing in
gome particulars to meet our fondest
expectations, but when we turn from
home affairs to inquire as to the po
litical welfare of other common
wealths, there is a sense of satisfac
tion in knowing that Utah Is a com
paratively clean and pure state, po
litically and otherwise. We have been
reading a quotation from the Star of
San Francisco, which Is a review of
the politics of that city, accompanied
by congratulatory statements on the
improvements being made. The Star
tells of the time when every depart
ment of the city government was in

The Christian Herald has given io
us a new prayer through a contributor
who says
"Recently when riding with a gen
tleman in the seventies, he told me
he never went to bed at night with
out adding to his prayers the prayer
familiar to most of us in childhood.
Now I lay me down to sleep.' The
thought came to me, Why not have
a morning prayer? They are certainly
Christian helps, when coming with
the heart's accord A few mornings
afterward these lines came to mv
" 'Now I wake me from my s'eep,
Help me, Lord, thy will to keep.
Make me nobic good and strong.
And protect me from all wrong.' "
Of all the prayers, the most help
ful, the most powerful for good is
that child's prayer, "Now 1 lay me
down to sleep ' More young mind.
have been impressed with moral re
sponsibility and religious sentiment
through the nightly recital of this
appeal than by any one other prayer.
It is a prayer that stays with one
even long after the period of child
hood has passed, and it brings back
to older people the memories of the
days when the world contained so
much of m story and when mother's
counsel was accepted as above question

Roy IngebretSen; a well-known local
painter and paperhanger. was 6tabbed
in the back last night with a paring
knife and dangerously wounded The
stabbing is alleged to have been donp
by E J. Spivey, who is now being held
in the citv jail, awaiting an investiga
tion. According to the storv of the affair,
as told to 'he police, Ingebretsen was
standing in front of the Llttlo Queen
saloon, on Washington avenue near
Twenty-third street, talking to John
Syphers. Spivey had entered a store
nearby while they were talking and,
as stated by persons In the store, had
a parinjz knife jn his hand He was
asked what he was goinp to do with
it and replied he was "going to get"
someone with it.
He came out of the store and, going
behind Ingebretsen, stabbed him be
tween the shoulders. He then ran
south on the avenue and was followed
by Peter Lever, who saw the trouble.
He went to the Tavern cafe, with Lev
er following, and the latter telephoned
for the police, from the Marshall drug
Btore. Sergeant C. K. Layne respond
ed and arrested Spivey in the cafe
In the meantime, Ingebretsen asked
Syphers to pull the knife from his
back and Syphers did so, using both
hends and pulling with considerable
strength. The blade was about three
inches long. The wounded man was
then taken to the Cave Drug store
and after being examined by Dr.
CrawBhaw, was removed to his home.
