I Yesterday our local column critl-
I cised the wisdom of organizing n
i Young Men's Republican club at tins
time, because the methods adopted
I bv the IcaderB of the club bore all
1 the earmarks of a political machine.
I It Is customary to form a polUU nl
I club after a party has nominntcd Its
I candidates. To form such a club at
I this time, a few weeks before the
vention will have a fenden-
I y to Injure the party rather than
' help it. in the present tempe of the
I oter6 of this part of Utah
1 Boss rule In the Republican party
' r.r Weber county will mean certain
I defeat this fall. By that we do not
I mean that : ie hybrid party of the
Bull Moose ami 'he Hon key can ad
$ minister such defeat, as there Is a
I sentiment against the fusion combinn
I t;on. We believe, however that it
I would not require much of an effor,
I for the independent voters nf Weber
J county to place a Hfizens ticket In
I J the field. That Is why we warn th
f, Republican bos-es
The Examiner, the orsau of 1 1 1
1 bosses this morning runs to the res
cue of the would-be machine and
I 1 says:
M "Bill does not like the looks of a
1 M machine unless he is the chauffeur.
S and nobody is willing to risk his neck
n with Bill in charge of the steering
S ae;ir as he was recently disqualified
I for repeated Jumping the track. So
when Bill yells "machine," toot your
horn and go right ahead "
Now let it be known that the said
"Bill" does not seek to be ihe "chauf
feur" or anything else In any po
litical machine Neither has he any
apology to make for "jumping the
track," It ws a crooked track and
voters who respected their backbone
did not follow such a track
Again, the Examiner says t hi-
morning :
"One clause of the constitution
adopted on Wednesday evening by
the new Republican club caused much
favorable comment, thai prescribing
that the club shall not participate, R8
an organisation, in any pre-conventlon
campaigns, but shall work entireh to
stir up general interest In the regular
campaign that will follow "
That resolution is what causes the
trouble. It is just "dut' to blind
the voterB.
Think of it. the bosseB appoint a
committee In each voting district pre
sumably to get the Republicans to
6ipn the club roll. Sure, every Re
publican can sign ihe said club roll
?nd become a member of the club,
but the bosses already have selected
the men to act as leaders In each
voting district. The machine !s
formed and Is In running order. For
what? The bosses sa simply to ere
ate Interest in the part How un-
Iseuisn: mow patriotic these bosses
are! Now we want to state the Stand
ard has no candidate The Standard
seeks nothing politically. But we
want, Republican success at the poles
this fall In Weber county and in the
6tate which only can be secured by
giving the people an absolutely free
rein politically.
The Progressives cast the largest
vote tn thla country two years ago.
The Progressive vote is independent
The Progressives walked out of the
Chicago convention because the boss
es packed that convention That leB
son should not be so soon forgotten.
Just look at this vote in 1912, the
' same being the total vote in Weber
ounty :
For Colonel Roosevelt j.JJj
For President Taft J-JJJl
For Wood row Wilson - JJ
For Eugene V. DebB "
For RelmeT
Total vote 1V
The question is who is going to
get the Progressive 3,608 votes? Who
is going to get a majority of them
We believe, if the vote were taken
lodav, the Republican ticket would
get two-thirds of them. But no ma
chine, no matter how well it is oiled,
can afford to take chances on that
vote Better let that Young Men B
Republican club rest until the candi
dates are nominated, and see to it
that the Progressives are not only In
vited to vote the Republican tlekn.
but Invited to help make the ticket.
The Standard has said enough
There is no intention to pursue this,
matter further at this time
Remember, forewarned is forearmed.
W know the people. It Is dangerous
to challenge them.

Count Leo Tolstov In 1910 forecast
war in Europe in 1913. In a prophecy
given bis grendniece In 1910, the fa
mous Rusplan made this prediction
"I see floating upon the surface of
the sea of human fate the huge sil
houette of a DUde woman She is
with her beauty, poise, her smil
her jewels a super Venus Nations
rush madly after her each of thflm
eager to attract her especially But
she. like an eternal courtesan flirt
with nil. In her hair ornaments, of
diamond! and rubies is engraved her
name, 'Commercialism. As alluring
and bewitching aa she seems, much
destruction and agony follow In her
wake. Her breath, reeking of sordid
transactions her voice of metallic.
character like gold, ana her iook oi
greed are so much poison to the na
tlons who fall victims to her charms
"And behold, she has three gl
Kantlc orms wlih three torches of
universal corruption In her hands.
The first torch represents the flame
of war, that the beautiful courtesan
carries from city to city and country
to country. Patriotism answers with
flashes of honest flame, but the end
Is a roar of guns and or muskets
"The second torch bears the flame
of bigotry and hypocrisy. It lights
the lamps only in temples and on al
tars of Bacred institutions It car
rles the seed of falsity and fanati
ism. It kindles the minds that are
still in cradles and follows them to
their graves,
"The third torch is that of the law .
that dangerous foundation of all unar.
thentlc traditions, which first does its
fatal work in the family then sweeps
through the larger world of literature,
are and statesmanship,
"The great conflagration will start
about 1912, set by the torch of the
first arm in the countries of south
eastern Europe It will develop Into
a destruction and calamity in 191.
In that year 1 see all Europe in flames
and bleeding. I hear the lamenta
tions of huge battlefields.
"But about the year 1915 the
strange figure from the north a new
Napoleon enters the stage of the
blood drama. He is a man of little
militaristic training a writer or a
journalist, but in his grip most of
Europe will remain until 1926.
"The end of the great calamity will
mark a new political era for the old
world. There will be left no empires
or kingdoms, but the world will form
a federation of the United States of
Nations There will remain only four
great giants the Anglo-Saxon, the
Latin, the Slavs and the Mongolians.
"After the year 1925 I 6ee a change
in religious sentiment The second
torch of the courtesan has brought
about the fall of the church. The
ethical idea has almost vanished Hu
manity Is without moral feeling
But then a great reformer arises
He will clear the world of the relics
of monotheism and lay the corner
stone of the temple of pantheism.
God, soul, spirit and Immortality will
be molten in a new furnace, and 1
see the peaceful beginning of an eth
ical era The man determined to
this mission is a Mongolian Slav He
is already walking the earth a man
of active arfalrs He himself does
nm now realize the mission nsslpncd
to him by Superior Powers.
"And. behold, the flame of the third
torch which has alreadv begun to
destroy our family relations our
standards of art and morals. The re
lation between woman and man ib ac
cepted BB a prosaic partnership of the.
sexes. Art has become realistic de

"Only small spots here ami un-re

three destructive flames The anti

a half a century By then, in th?

Just before the war broke nut a

plated to build an electric line from
Ogden into southern Idaho, but the
great uncertainty prevailing In the fi

turing of the plans

Turkey, so the cable information
states, has purchased the German
cruisers Goeben and Breslau and, as
a result, Turkey may be drawn into
the war This action on the part
of the Turks undoubtedly discloses
more than friendly relations with
Germany and a desire to succor the
warships of the kaiser found in dis
tress. The nations of the triple entente
; may decide to make a formal declara
tion of war on Turke because of
this attitude, but It would be well for
them to proceed cautiously in this
matter, as the European struggle may
start the " holy war" so long predict
ed in which the hundred of millions
Ot Mohammedans will rise to devas

world will be at war.

are not in any way complaining about
the attendance, it has been good, but
I would like to urge every loyal Og
dnlte for the lew days remaining of
this series to make a most special
effort to turn out for the games.
In baseball history, the present
Ftruggie will stand for years as one
of the most notable. The two con
tending teams are composed of the
star piayers from six Union associa
tion organizations. Long in existence,
the well-known rlvalrv of Ogden and
Salt Lake City in all matters of sport
has reached the boiling point' and
the air has become so charged with
feeling that lctory has become
personal matter to players on both
teams. Salt Lake and Ogden are im
bued with the do-or die spirit. The
three games already played have
"been sensatlonull thrilling. Thurs
dav's game, alone, was as near ma
por league baseball as it is possible
to get. It was plaed in the remark
able time of one hour and twentv
lliree minutes and it was marked bv
scores of spectacular features This
ie not so much an appeal for support
as it is an effort to acquaint all lov
ers of clean sport with the magnifi-1
cent opportunity that It afforded:
them every afternoon at Glenwood . ,
"Today, tomorrow and Sunday the
teams are to play here Then Tues
day and Thursday there will be,
pames at Glenwood. On Wednesday.;
the regular league game Is transferred
to the Lagoon diamond h'ridav, Sat ;
urday and Sunday of next week, the;
last three games of this series will,,
be played at Salt Lake City. If Og
den succeeds In taking two more
ames of the remaining nine, the lo-,
cal team will be eligible to contest for,
the association champion The pen
nant winner will be determined by a I
series of seven games, to be divided
between the two cities Prom every (
standpoint, the situation Is a thrilling
one and I hope every person iuterest
ed in good sport will let nothing keep
him away from the games."
