The express companies In Ogden today notified the banks that they would not sell exchange on any Eu j ropean cities They had rerelved in BtruCtions from headquarters to dis contlnue that branch ol their busi ness This Is the first time In the I history of the country when an order I of that kind has been issued, and It ! is one sign of the nervous, apprehen sivc state of all business having Bu ropean connections j 1 International relation, have been almost broken off, oven between countries that are not at all Involved in the threat of a great war calamity , Today the hit; ships of the German I , 'line were ordered to remain In li American ports and cancel their sail ing dates. The fear that the mighty conflict would be In full swing before the trans-Atlantic liners could reach their destinations and that the un 1 armed passenger bonis would be easy j pmv for the warships of the enemy, j caused the extraordinary action to be taken. . This is the first direct evidence ol I the all-embracing effect the war would have on the affairs of the na tions of the world ru-i WHY SANITATION IS NOT WHAT IT SHOULD BE. When Dr. T B Beatty. in address I Ing a merlins in the Weber Club yes terday afternoon, declared Ogden s i health and sanitary conditions were deplorable, he undoubtedly spoke the I truth. With a liberal appropriation k for the.' sanitary department of ihe mL J city, he said he could make Ogden I the most healthful place In the Uni I ted States, and In that, we dare say. he also was right. Ogden has a climate nearly perfect for health. The water supply cou'id lie made abundant and pure With sanitation added, no city could excel j Ogden In health affording conditions. But, as Dr. Beatty says, our sani tarv laws cannot be enforced because the city does not provide a sufficient force to properly look after the health of the community That condition has prevailed ever since Ogden grew beyond the proportions of a town and became a city of large population Our sanitary progress has not kept I J pace with the city's growth. With only one man In the field an inspector, no wonder contagious " diseases cannot be checked, when ence they start to spread. WHY JONES WAS NOT ACCEPTED. Thomas B. Jones was the second largest contributor to Woodrow Wil son's campaign fund and that may be one reason why he was named by the President as a member of federal reserve board. That the President blundered in attempting to reward his friend with a high place in the government was brought out by Sena tor Reed of Missouri who, from his place in the senate, poured forth the following denunciation of Jones: I "Those who perpetuate monopoly are as guilty as those who create It. "Those who honor monopolists give aid and comfort to the enemies or Democracy and the causes of human liberty. "Private monopoly is Indefensible. The expression finds Its equivalent In the phrase ' private monopoly Is crim inal.'' Those who create, foster and encourage that which 16 criminal are themselves criminals. "Private monopoly la indefensible The proposition has Its corrollary In the oft-repeated doctrine that thosi who organize or operate monopoly should be held personally responsible and be tried and condemned as crim inals. "Respectability constitutes no ex ; Y cuse for crime When education, learning or great riches can be woen into a cloak to cover corrupt, criminal and unlawful practices, justice is dead in the republic. "When a man who pilfers from hunger or steals a trifle to supply a necessity is sent to Jail and those who in the teeth of the law organize commercial marauding expeditions and plunder communities and entire states not only go unwhlpped of Jus tice but are crowned with offices and showered with honor, an evil day has arrived. "I do not believe in sending the man who steals a loaf of bread o jail and exalting those who rob a nation. "The reason monopoly has not been destroyed Is because monopolists have been both powerful and respect able. If money can not buy respect. It can purchase its counterfeit. L 1 "The golden calf still command adoration. "Monopoly can not gain rights by prescription, Long-continued rob bery does not ripen into a privilege. You cau not steal long' enough to Lt. make larceny a vested right If you could, thievery would be an estab lished and flourishing business. "A man who volunteers to serve on board a pirate ship with an already established criminal history may be 1 worse than one who enlists with the original crew. The latter might have U been deceived into the service. The former knows the gory record of the craft. He seeB the black flag at the masthead. He steps upon decks slip i- pery with the blood of the slaugh tered. A gentleman of that kind knows what he is doing, "In the forum of morals there is no statute of limitations "The commonest plea of the scoun drel Is tbat he was beguiled by oth ere Adam indented that defense It was not good when It was made ' and It is not (rood now "The executioner who during WP French revolution operated the guil lotine could not shift his crime to Untoine Louis, the inventor of the in strument nor be heard to say that prior to his employment the kn.r had already gathered a great ban est of innocent heads I The man who helps to conduct the. Harvester trust can not escape re sponsiblllty by alleging tt hU sponsor and friend created It before j he took service." PLACE THE SHIPPING UNDER OUR FLAG. President Wilson has made a most important move in proceeding to call j a conference to determine whether it is possible to so amend our marine law. as to allow the shipping of the world to come under the American Hon. all ship1! nag as uru., Hying the stars and stripes during the European conflict would be free from attack and that would allow the com raerce of the world to be carried on without a war risk. The one great object, from an American standpoint, would be to pro vide a safe outlet tor the exports ot this country We have not the ships to transport more than a small frac tion of our goods and were other ves sels to be driven from the seas, our foreign trade would cease to exist With a bumper whfl't and corn crop, and all Europe forced to look to the United States for those prod nets there is a promise of high price which will do much to counteract the effect of a general financial upset, but without ships to carry the grain this country's great crops might be left to mildew and rot. uu CLOSING OF THE BIG STOCK EXCHANGES Never before were the stock ex changes of the world closed as they are today. The ur scare has par alyzed the credit system of all coun tries and there Is not a market that can stand against the overwhelming dumping of securities. The New York Stock Exchange had been laboring since the first of the week to resist the tremendous offer ing of stocks from Europe, but this morning that institution was com pelled to close to prevent panic Some idea of the great strain un der which the stock market has been moving may be gainpd by the recital of the fact that of Utah Copper alone 27,000 shares were sold yesterday representing a value of nearly $1,500, 000 One hundred thousand sharee ot Amalgamated Copper changed hands, totaling SA0O0.OO0 Of North ern Pacific 22.000 shares were traded in, valued at $2,000,000; 123.000 shares of Union Pacific represented $14,000,000; 250.000 shares of U. S. Steel called for $13,000,000 Tne shares sold and offered for sale ag gregeted hundreds of millions of dol lars. a sura large enough to stagger the strongest financial institutions of the world. That explains why the New York Exchange could not con tlnue to operate. One of the brokerage firms, In a special diBpatch. describes the situa tion as follows. "There is just one thing to say about the situation. Conditions are critical and thiB is no time to tem porire or to pursue a vacillating pol icy. Under ordinary conditions, it perhapB is alwayB well to accept the counsel of one's hopes hut during a crisis prompt and decisive action is in order and should be the watch word. Money conditions are becom ing acute and New York has been forced to permit itself to be the dumping ground for the world. In such times as these Intrinsic merit counts for little, for It is quite true that standard securities, if judged by the usual standards, are attractive for Investment purposes, but Investment purposes mean full cash payment, and the majority of conservative houses in the financial community are de manding that the cash accompany buying orders." The closing of the exchanges will ward off panic as holders of stocks will be prevented from throwing them on the market and those with mar ginal stocks will be aaved from bank ruptcy. WAR IN EUROPE A MIGHTY 8TRUGGLE. What the war in Europe would mean le thus set forth by the New York American: Since Bismarck edited the famous Ems dispatch, which let looBe the Franco-Prussian war. Europe has faced no war cloud so black and om inous as this which looms today. A war between Austria-Hungary and Servla alone would not disturb the distribution of world power. Its reeult would be knowB from the be ginning. The weight of overwhelm Ing numbers would prevail over hero ic courage expressed in battalions thin and few But the war cloud of today looms heavy against the glaut shadows ot the two great groups of European powers between Austria, Germany and Italy of the triple alliance, and Russia. France and England of the triple entente. The tramp of more than six million soldiers behind the guns of these great world powers makes humanitv tremble before the colossal poasibili tics of blood and slaughter which such a conflict might luvolve Since Napoleon and Frederick there has been nothing like it. jfiS&h ,n the &5reeive. seems to be striking over Servia's head at the Russian dominance of the Balkan f GREAT OUT -THEY -GO SALE I 1 CLARK'S ANNUAL AUGUST CLEARANCE OE ALL SPRING AND 1 if sale m. v SUMMER LSNES .1 m STARTS Jt Anyone who fails to see the importance of this great money-saving opportunity has neither i fiiF their own mteresl oi hcart or any rcard for true &conom' Come here Saturdy mornin 1 m SATUR- mEBBi whether you wish In make a purchase or not look around and see for yourself we reel g I DAY WW0&X sure that yOU wU1 be unable to resist the most temPtin8 clothing and shoe bar8ams tnat I nmDMrxi S5w Wr 1 were ever offered in this city. . . . . , , . , MORNING KM A t All Spring and Summer lines must go Good, clean stocks of strictly dependable I j tiffjt ij W merchandise, and at price for which we could not duplicate them today in the markets. 8 L2 2fei ALL SPRING CITITC 0UT-THEY-G0 I mAAmAitwk msomn dvlld as follows I IPV y ONELOTCONTAINS ANOTIIERLOT IS HEREISLOT H Mm 5ssl 3 I H'p ; Jill I j V or fancy summer suits in the very latest novelty styles P1 ll lfflifi J'ri fB if fZ jWtfi'A tA 9 newest models newest patterns all hand tailored at the jjffl font ! 14''T1 ( KmMl vonderful OUT-THEY-GO reduction of 4 jPTWl 'isr $&WO A ill m fa I I H ft! , TO UP TO $5 00 BOYS' SUITS fl g v LA SHOE ) S M) IIP A ' I I t ft Finest a-H wool suits Jacket and pants Fk M ,'fjS p-.-t, See 1 IWt Jill ' ' a"d Norfolk rtylea-nifty patterns- $$9MM J '& CTllffF W ll iM I Wi values to $5.00 OUT THEY GO at V v tt l W fwj I M windows Illy- jlifU j '!

Russia, if she enters will inter vene to prevent the practical destruc tlon of Servia socially, politically anu religiously related to her and to hold together in unity thp Balkan states, which RuBsia holds closer akin in IB terest to her triple entente than to the triple alliance, which Is over look iug greedily upon thefe pobsesslons. If Russia comes to the relief of Ser via, Germany and Italy must rally by the compact to Austria, and If one or them Joins against Russia, England and France are compact-bound to stand with the Muscovite. In this vast grapple Russia and Gerrnanj would be the central nnd titanic flgureH. England s navy alone with France would undertake to destroy the German anj Austrian navies. France, perhaps, with the ever-living sting of Alsacr-Lorralne tn her soul, could scarcely restrain th desire to fling acrosr. the German border a groat army with thf marv elous new French guns to regain her lost provluces. nn SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT BECOME A MEDICAL PARTISAN? Kdltor Standard The announce ment from Washington that the Fed era) Health service has arranged to dispense Its medical theor.PR on typhoid and other prevalent disuses to the public by means of "movies" and "canned'; lectures, will raisp a question in the minds ' of many peo ple as to the wisdom, or Indeed, the right of th(? government, to rmbark on such an innovation. Treatment by serums and vaccines Is br ing so in sistently pressed upon the public by the so-calleri "regular school of cure, that many are beginning to seriously question the governmental policy, which apparently gives approval to thi6 theory of a single school of medi cine. The only persons who have charge of and who dispense the favorable re ports of the beneficial results from serums and .accines, seem to be, the doctors who are committed to this theory, it will be remembered that some, years ago our Federal Health service hastily accepted, as a proved fact, the claims of Professor Koch that in tuberculin he had discovered a beneflclent remedy for the treat ment of tuberculosis, and this treat ment was adopted in the Federal hos pital at Fort Stanton Later Profes bor Koch created consternation among his medical brethren by frankly d mltting his disappointment in the re sults of the treatment Though tuber culin has long since been discredited, our Federal Health service persisted In the treatment until three or four eare ago, when it was discarded as worthless. During the past four years a contro versy has raged among the high priests of serum therapy In Europe, in regard to the anti typhoid vaccine. Metchnikoff strongly advocates Inocu lation with the living bacilli and holds In contempt those who believe in using dead bacilli, which is the approved treatment In our army and navy Professor Besredkn.. of the Pas teur institute, holds that his own ex periments and those of Metchnikoff thews that "the effect of dead bacilli Is very uncertain " On the other hand. Chantraesse and Vincent de nounce the Metchnikoff method as murderous Inoculation." holding that its use on man is attended by grave risks Many careful physicians, as well as Intelligent laymen, who have follow ed the history of serum therapy in recent years, entertain serious doubts as to Its efficacy and harmlessness. Very recently a woman and two chil dren in Brooklyn, who, according to Bsssssssssssi the nurses and others acquainted with their condition were apparently in good health, and who were free from any symptom of typho.d were induc ed to submit to anti-typhoid inocula tion The mother died, and the chil dren, at last report, were at the gate of death. Here certainly the treat ment was no't preventive. Did the Inoculation of supposed dead bacilli have any effect in producing the dls ease1 That is the question being ask ed by many medical practitioners who distrust the treatment Again, it will be remembered that some time ago, shortly after the Flex ner serum for spinal meningitis bad been so widely and favorably adver tised, s leading regulnr physician in the Cincinnati hospital, startled a gathering of Ms medical conferees by announcing that fourteen out of fif teen children treated with the serum had died as a result of the inocula tion This doctor uufeelingry failed to leave the customary loophole for his colleagues to claim that the deaths were occasioned by the dis ease, and nol by the much advertised cure, for he declared that he had tested the serum on animals, and the-, yiuuipuy uihu in precisely me Dam; munner as the unfortunate children In view of these things, many per sona, even those Inclined to the prac tlce of the old school, may question the wisdom of the government In lending its sanction to this theory, which It will be noted ts favored only by a portion of a single school or medicine (Signed) HENRY A TEASDEL, Christian Science Committee on Pub lication for Utah. oo A paper dishcloth which becomes soft and pliable when wet and Is dur able enough to be used sovernl times ha6 been Invented.
