GOVERNOR SPRY TALKS OH THE AUTO ROAD THROUGH UTAH . i i The Tribune says: Straight rroni the shoulder. Gover nor William Spry yesterday answered his critics on the threatened loss oi the Lincoln highway. To twelve members of the Kmar club who called on him to seek W co-operation in having the route around the south end of the lake open ed he pledged his support In thai movement and declared that a state merit that he was responsible for ug don's apparent victory was made d either fool, or knave knave It n understood the facts and fool if he did not understand them. " I WOUW Ike to tell him that to his face, the governor added. Reminded bv the committee inai Ogden had broken a gentlemen s agreement to cease working for a northern route in return for bait Lake s abandonment of the project 16 have the route from Evanston to bait Lake come by way, of Chalk creek and Parley! canyon, the governor said it would be an easy thing to have the latter route declared the official -tate highway if Ogden persisted in repudiating the agreement. He inti mated that he would be willing to recommend such action to the stat. road commission if necessary to pre I vent Salt Lake being shut out en ! tirelv The governor declared that the Lin coin highway project, so far bs its $10 000,000 finances is concerned is a lot of hot air and a myth, con cocted by the automobile interests to sell their cars He explained that the route around the northern end of the lake, over which Ogden Is diverting the trans continental traffic at present, to the elimination of Salt Lake, was declar ed a state blghwa In connection with the Midland trail project when it was generally supposed that the mam transcontinental road would extend from Grand Junction to Salt Lake, north to Ogden and around the lake The money spent in improving that road, he said, was appropriated by the legislature at the urgent request of the autolsts of the state and could not be spent in any other way. "If there is any criticism due In this matter It belongs to the autolsts oi the state and particularly to those of Salt Lake, who laid awake nights getting that appropriation through the governor declared with consider able warmth. The Rotarlans laid before the gov ernor the charge that Ogden had brok en raitn with Salt Lake in the matter of the Lincoln highway The Ogden . q had agreed to drop the northern route around the lake if Salt Lake would abandon Its effort to have tn rhalk creek and Parley's canyon route officiallv declared, they alleged Agreement Admitted. The governor admitted that such an agreement had been made by the Ogden men to himself when the route v as declared down Weber canyon to Ogden and thence south to Salt Lake. "If they have broken that agree ment, and apparently thev hae, then there is but one thing to do, and that Is to declare the official highwa down Chalk creek and Parley's can- on cutting Ogden out entirely," said the governor. Will G Farrell, one of the delega 1 tion, handed the governor a pimphlet ; gotten out by the Ogdn interests in j connection with a Nevada association, which he declared to be absolute proof that Ogden had repudiated ano broken its pledge "I used to turn a deaf ear to the stories of Ogden? antagonism when I W3s secretary of the Commercial club," he said "I was for brotherly I love and all that but brotherly love will lose us the transcontinental auto traffic in this case " The governor suggested that the ' Ogden people be given notice that , unless they keep the pledge the route will be declared down t naik creeK. The Rotarlans insisted that such ! notice was not due them; that they I had deliberately broken faith with I Salt Lake and that Salt Lake should no longer consider the Junction City. Suggestion Is Made. F C Schramm suggested that the building of a road from the mouth ot I eber canyon to Farmlngton to con- nect there with the present state road ! nughl solve the difficult) Tourists could then make heir choice at the mouth of the canyon between Ogden and Salt Lake This suggestion was hailed as a good one. Tt was generally agreed that the route around the south end of the lake must be put into condition for traffic before the city can hope to J If is only a Question ol time until I you will wear j Scowcroff s I Ncvcr-Rip Overalls j WHY NOT START RIGHT NOW?

The Rotarlans who called on the governor were F. O. Schramm, VA C Orem. Will G. Farrell, W F Jensen, president of the Commercial club; L M Bailey, George O. Relf W. F. Ad-1 ams. Dr W L Ellerbcck, N H Ber tram, F S Murphy. Fred Hornung and Roderick McKenzle Mr Orem opened the conference bv explaining the purpose of the meeting He said that Ogden had secured the highway nrouud the north ern end of the lake, because that route had been improved by the state, while the southern route had had nothing done for It. He said the Ro tary club desired the aid of the gov ernor in its attempts to have the southern route put Into a position to vie with the northern route The governor then made a lengthy statement, telling the whole hlston of the Lincoln highway project, so far as he had been connected with It officially 01. T. B. BEfiTTY GIVES OGDEN A SON SPANKING In an address before a mas6 meet ing of Ogden citizens, held at the We ber club yesterday afternoon. Dr. T R. Beattv, secretary of the state board of health, stated that sanitary and health conditions in Ogden were de plorable. This became known to him. he said, through a thorough study of the local situation and he was not surprised that it was true when he learned that the city health department was carrying on Us wor with a $5000 a year allowance The j fact that the police department, he said, was allowed $40,000 a year to j look after the safety of the public. I while the health department, with I its much more Important duty the ! guarding of the public health was j only allowed $5000 was a very bad j condition. With ?4'i,iiun a year, ' he contin ued. "I could make Ogden the most sanitarv and healthful city in the Uni ted States." In speaking of the city sanitary de partment, Dr Beatty stated that a city the size of Ogden that had only I two men in the sanitary inspector's , office and one of them being required j to do clerical work, while the other j went out, appeared to him as nn an j tedeluvian condition For proper health conditions, he said, me deparl 1 ment should have at least four com i petent sanitary inspectors, a clerk, a , pitj physician, v. ho could give all his time to the work of the department and several nurses for duty in all parts of the city to educate mother on the proper care of infants. The necessity for having nurses connected with the health department may bp known when the statistic show that 22 out of every 100 bable born in Utah, die before they reach I the age of 1 year The causes o 1 infantile mortality are largely prc ; ventable diseases and the mothers should be taught hov. to fight them. Dr. Beatty noticed, he said, in the ?.utomoDile riae about tne city wun Messrs J. M Kirkham. George Shor ten and J. D Larson that' the Ogden roads were far ahead of those in Salt Lake, but that sanitary conditions were bad The worst condition that was noticed was that there was no garbage system in the city and that the garbage which had accumulated in many back yards and vacant lots was the breeding place of flies, filth and disease He had learned also that there were hundreds of houses in the sewer districts that were not connected with the sewers though there was a city ordinance making this compulsory The cause of these bad conditions not alone in Ogden. but in other clt ies, is largely prejudice and ignor ance, but the different communities are beginning to realize the need of strictly sanitary conditions together with healthful and cheerful surround ings. The people should Increase their activity, the doctor continued, and not alone provide for healthful conditions on their own premises, but should demand that the city authori ties see to It that the unwilling should obey the law. He gave a particularh scathing dis cussion of the fly question, stating that the peculiar part of it was that the people didn't seem to realize that these pests could be exterminated. There is no question but that this can be done through a concerted and con sistent effort of the people. Before closing his address. Dr, Be atty said the foundation stones of a healthful community were proper sewage good water, and systematic destruction of garbage These parts of the civic structure should there fore be given much attention Thera should be water Inspectors on duty constantly., especially on the stream from which the city secures its water supply, above the intake, during the ramping season. These men should see that nothing contaminating got Into the stream, and that sheep and cattle are kept away from it. In conclusion, he said that a sani tary survey of the city should be made so that the people, knowing tho facts, could act in an intelligent man ner toward changing them for the bet ter Mr Kirkham, secretary of the Utah Development league, spoke brieflv, outlining in detail the features of thi "Clean City" contest that has been inaugurated by hib organization and the state board of health Among the suggestions which he made for successfully carrying on the coDlest locally, was that a com mlttee be appointed at the meeting to create interest among the people for a better and a cleaner city Much good could be done, ho said, by ere ating interest so strong that civic pride would do the work. In accordance with this suggestion. J. D.

Berlin, July 31 The morning pass ed without a break in the hea war cloud over the European horizon and! there was no relief to the almost de spairing uncertalnt existing in the German capital and excitement con tinued to increase It had been generally expected that today would bring the decision for peace or war, and when a decree was promulgated proclaiming martial law and consequent military government, all began to think that armed con flict could be the only outcome Withholding Moblllzat'on Order. Government officials however, re frained from making anv definite dec laration, saying they preferred to wait till all the resources of diplomacy had been exhausted It was well under stood that the Issue of an order for the mobilization of the German forces would be tantamount to a declaration of war, and It was decided to poet pone this action until the last possible moment in which there was a ray ot hope for peace It was evident everywhere today that the military authorities were quietly preparing for the speedy mov ing of troops In case the order for mobilization should be given. GERMANS ACTIVE NEAR FRONTIER Paris. July 31 Military movements on the German side of the frontier were very active today and French troops sent outpost6. A German patrol at one point acta ally crossed the frontier probably ow ing to a mistake. In no case has any considerable force of French troops advanced clos er to the German frontier than six mile6. The French office officials were considerably more pessimistic today because, as they explained, the grav ity of the situation was Increasing with the lapse of each day. At th? same time it was said that it must not be assumed that all hope of a peaceful eolutlon had vanished France It was said, will not mobilize her army until after Germany h done so GOLD IN PARIS AT A PREMIUM Paris.

It Is to be hoped that the centen ary may lead to a revival ot interest in the novels of Sir Walter Scott, an author of whom England has special 1 need just now. because now here i j preached more eloquently the virtue ! of tolerance. Scott wrote of English bistorv In days when religious and Civil discord was even harsher than now, and he managed somehow to do! justice to both sides He show s both ( avallers and Roundheads as fine fel-1 lows, acting according to their princi ples, and however he may distribute j praise and blame, he never makes the mistake of depicting as knaes the Englishmen allrned on either side. To turn to his pages from the acrimbn lous political controversies which dis figure the British press in these days is to breathe a purer and serener air, and to those Olympian heights the shrill acriniination.s of Whig and Tory ascend but as a faint echo of past controversies Most authors are as full of preju- dkes as an eg? is of meat, and even a writer of genius, as Rudyard Kip ; ling has lately showed, may have mean and unworthj prejudices I Scott's as one of those large mag nanimous natures that can take In i both sides and put more stress on hu manit than nn thp ch Ihlinlpf h c nvor j which humanity works Itself up to a red fury of slaughter. He was a I great man, a great author, and a great ! force for good, and England has sel dom had more need of his large per specthe. wide sympathy, and kindly i tolerance It would help amazingly j if politicians and public would forget i their party wian;rles long enough to j celebrate the centenary of "Waverlev, or 'Tls Sixty Years Since."

MEN MUST KEEP HEADS War Will Not Hurt America Greatly, But Small Losses Must Be Expected. New York, July 31. J P. Morgan today issued a statement which said: "AlarmiDg as the news is from Eu 1 rope, we are still hoping there will not be a general war While the :graty of the present situation can , hardly be exaggerated, there is still i the opportunity for the sober second 1 thought of the people of Europe to prevail over their first Impulses "The situation of the American se . curity market during the last few jft i days has been a splendid illustration , ' j of the inherent soundness of flnan j clal conditions In this country.

"It Is idle to say that America will not be hurt by a general European war. The wholesale waste of capi tal involved In such a catastrophe would result In a distribution of loss es the world over, but the Iosb herp would be infinitesimal compared with the losses to the countries tmmedlate h involved.
