I SOI GRAPES KICK I HTSEIIEIS10I KNOCK AT REED SMOOT. Editor Standard: Miss Elsie Agnes Lancaster, suffragette missionary from New York, to Utah, is a most . excellent woman, there is no doubt about that, but why carry coals Into n mining camn that has nothing bu;. black diamonds in sight? Utah has settled the suffrage question beyond dispute and for all time, to the satis faction of everbod, so why with the bom finger of discontent dlsiurl) its mouldy skeleton in the forgotten grave of the past? The constitution of our country has wisely made each state the Judge of who shall have the lawful rlgbt to vote at elections, and therefore It is no concern of the general govern ment, provided the state conditions the right of suffrage in harmony v 1th specific provisions of the United States, and these provisions tho state of Utah, and the other states, has settled to the satisfaction of all concerned If I were a member of congress and lived south of Mason's and Dixon' line, I would oppose female suffrage there with all the power God has given me. and m constituents of the white race would rine up and bless my name. The men of the Xew South, like those of the Old. dearly love their morning bitters, but they have been astly willing to sacrifice that great luxury by voting for prohibition, in violation of their .acred traditions thnt claim them tp be tbe onlj Slrnon pur? Bourbon race I This they have done to protect their homes from the violent hands of the dissolute colored despoller so mad by the unbridled use of ardent spirits nnd narcotics. It is not surprising that the colored leople so late emerged from the dark ness of slavery have, with few excep tions, no sane notions of self-control, and when saturated with the murder ous stuff that would make a jackrab bit fight a bull dog they will plunge without notice into the most violent excesses and children are wantonlv murdered, their mothers and sisters outraged, farm houses pillaged and set on fire, and lynchlngs by the In jured lctims become the order of the dav. For year& the papers have been filled with these brain-storm exhibi tions till in other countries American civilization has become a byword of reprctich Not a month ago the min ister of Turkey to the United States, when risked for protection to our mio sionarteB in his country, hurled back into our teeth the story of the name less crimes committed here in Ameri ca, and for this he was compelled to leave Washington notwithstanding the truth of what he said. If female suffrage obtains In the southern states, several of them havo a preponderating colored population, the colored women will have the same tight to vote as will the white women and about the first thing they will do will be to wipe out prohibition and restrain the hand that lies heavy on the sale of morphine and cocaine, and a reign of terror will again prevail over that section of country as It once did forty years ago under the regime of Kellog and others scut from the northern Btatee to reconstruct and re derm the states lateh in rebellion O, yes. the Republican party was responsible because It was in power and yet that party was not really to blame!

It Is just and right that women In he northern states, and In the west ern, should have the same pri liege? hat are vouchsafed to their brothers, tut the southern home is an exception ind should not be put in jeopardy by repeating a lesson that has cost so much to learn. There may come a day. God speed It, when the colored people, further removed from the days of the cruel whip and the overseers' courses will better appreciate a free man's birthright and his responsibil ity to society and then be worthy a freeman's elective franchise, but let the present voters down there decide when that safe time shall be, and In the meanwhile let the southern mo ther pray to be saved from some of her would-be friends "up north " Personally, I now am and all my life have been a Republican and be cause of it I have no apology to make to any one, but I will never help my party to degrade itself by doini; something to another state that I would not have done to my own. Moreon-er, to Invoke the lawless meth ods of the English suffragettes by adopting their threats of reprisal and intimidation in our own state when quiet means and ways have been suf ficient to win for either sex the most just and liberal franchise is not In harmony with Republican Ideals, am! the women voters of Utah no mat ter to which political party they be long, will not look with favor upon such an unjust and senseless innova tion. The paramount issue with the state this fall is to re-elect Senator Smoot to his old seat in the United States senate that for twelve years he has honored as no man has honored any other seat. Senator Smoot has risen trom an obscure village lad to the crowning height of a real statesman to whom all eyes east and west are turned for the protection of our in dustrles and to strengthen the lan guishing hand of labor. He has put the dull state of Utah on the polit ical map and as never before we of the Inland Sea are proud of that map and of the peerless architect that has written It there. The Republican party has a glori ous record running through half i century of storm and sunshine and to day It face& the enemy with a smile of satisfaction on the splendid pic ture of Its past and looks Into the fu ture with confidence. The Republi can partv has stood for the weak and oppressed In its own country and in all countries and will not now, nor at any time, accept a victory by in direction or by subterfuge The Re publican party fights fair and in the open, and If It goes down in the bat tle, as other great causen have gone dovn. only to rise again, it will fall with its face to the foe The Re publican partv will not cov-r its face with a mask to deceive the peo ple, nor will it strike an adversary from the shadow of a woman's skirts (Signed).

NEXT SESSION PROGRAM Building Up of Great Ameri can Merchant Marine to Be Among Achievements. Washfneton. Oct. IS President Wilson made public a letter today to Majority Leader Underwood of the house, in which he reviewed the achievements of his administration, outlined the program for the next session of congress and declared "tho Democratic party is now in fact the only Instrument ready to the coun try's hand b which anything can be accomplished." Tbe president wrote the letter as an endorsement of all Democrat!.: members of congress in lieu of speech es he said he would like to make in every congressional district He pre dicted victor for his party in the elections because "every thoughtful man sees that a change of parties just now would set the clock back, not forward," and because "a prac tical nation is not likely to reject such a team, full of the spirit of public service, and substitute in the midst of greal tasks either a party upon which a deep demoralization has fall en, or a partv which has not grown to a stature that would warrant its assuming the responsible burdens of state.' Campaign to Set Business Free. The legislative program begun dur ing the present congress was declared by the president to have been begun "to destroy private control and set business free." He said that the people of the country had been served by this congress as "they have never been served before." Outlining the work already accom plished, Mr Wilson mentioned the reform of the tariff, the passage of the new currency bill, the anti-trust bills, nnd the handling of foreign problems. He said he doubted if "there has ever been a finer exhibi tion of team work or of unhesitating devotion to the fulfillment of party pledges." Private Control Everywhere. Praising the new tariff bill, the president asserted that "private con trol had shown its sinister face on every hand in America, had shown it for a long time, and sometimes very brazenly, in the trusts and in the vir tual domination of credit by small groups of men." He said thai high prices did not spring dlrei tl from the tariff, but out of the suppression of competition which flourished more ea8lly under the protection ot a high tariff He declared that the panic which oppo nents of the new bill predicted, had not come, and that dcspl' the Euro pean war there had been sufficient time to prove the success of the act "The trade commission bill and the Claton anti-trust bill were spoken of as designed to make men In a small v. ;i bf business as free to success as men In a big way and to kill mon opoly in the seed' He added that "monopolies art- built up by init.nr methods of competition." which would he eliminated by the new legislation. 'Monopoly is to be cut off at the roots," he declared Monoply Cut Off. "If our parly were to be called upon to name the particular point of prin ciple In which it differs from its op ponents most sharply and in which it eels itself most definitelj sustained by experience," continued tho presi dent, "we should no doubt say that it was this That we would have no dealings with monopoly, but rejeel 11 ;.:tpi.- th-.r. while our opponents wop ready to adopt It into the realm of law, and seek merely to regulate it and moderate It in its operation It is our purpose to destroy monopoo nnd maintain competition as the only effectual instrument of business lib erty." Justice has been dent- the laborer, declared the president, and his labor is no loncer to be treated as if it were "merely an Inanimate object of commerce disconnected from the for tunes and happiness of a living hu man being, to be dealt with as an ob ject of sale and barter " Democracy of Credit. Of the currency bill. Mr Wilson said "We have created a democracy of credit such as has never existed In this country before" He declared that "credit is now at the disposal of every man who can show energy and assets," and because control of the SUSPECTED AS SPY?
