1 3 III "9 Standard's attention has been
I I in) called to the advertisement of Mr. J.
I ill II S. Campbell, stating "that the legisla
te EUI ture ot utalx specifies that all candi-
lilli dates must adhero to tho non-partisan
U'ljl! spirit of tho commission law." The
I IK 111 Standard Is asked if that statemont is
fill! correct Our answer is that It is not.
III There is no such statement In tho
llHlil laws creating a coinmifislon form of
Jllilil government in the state of Utah. Tho
InJHll original intention, however, of the
IflT commission form of government was
991 t0 take PHtlcs out of cIty cPG118;
iOiJ lt the original commission form of
lU Will government has not been adopted by
1J the legislature of Utah. Tho commis-
1! slon form of government that provides
will for non-partisan candidates also pro-
1 Tides for a recall of the officers and
i l;l I any law the officers may pass.
I II J 1 1 It can readily bo soen that, if the
ill III commissioners could be recalled on
MM thirty days' notice by the people hav-
m i ncr n rnlfl on the question, that the
HI commissioners would bo mighty care-
I lul what they did. Under that pro vi
lli sion it would nwke no great diffcr
VUl ence who the parties wore in office
IB because, if they did t mrte Bjod
I! I the people could recall them within
II thirty days. Such a commission form
Ifi of government naturally can afford to
IB be non-partisan. It is the only kind
W IF 1 of a commission form of government
ill that can ever be non"nartlsai1,
BUI Under the present laws of Utah,
10 Ibe commissioners elected under the
BUS commission form become more power
Mil ful than all the people combined,
jit They cannot be removed. They can
iMl W do as they please and there is no way
H K ior the people to stop tho commls
f sioners from giving away the people s
III best interests. Therefore, the com
Kl mission form of government adopted
f in Utah for the government of cities
1 Is not a non-partisan form of govern
BQ menl and was not Intended to bo such
Iff by the legislature. The bill was or
K iginally prepared with tho "recall in
II it, but Governor Spry served notice on
nl the legislature that he would not
MR stand for the recall and tho bill was
Hi then passed without It.
Mil Mr. Campbell Is entirely in error
IH in his advertisement when he makes
Ifl the statement that the law specifies
II that all candidates must adhere to the
B0 non-partisan spirit of the law. We do
not believe Mr. Campbell read the
fl law. Someone may have told him
Ml and that js all there is to it. Mr.
' Campbell Is also a partisan candidate.
IB He is verv much partisan for himself.
B- He seeks" the office. He has rallied
B around him a lot of partisan friends
1B who are as partisan as they can be for
Bfi Mr. Campbell. There are no uon-par-III
tlsan candidates in the field this year.
IN There cannot be any under the pres
min ent law, but If the law could be
Mil amended and the recall put in force
jj then there would be non-partisan can
Mil didates and elections. Then no one
IH would seek office to the extent of
Ifl paying thousands of dollars to be nom
B inated and elected.
H) Our attention has been called lo the
M fact that the Fell-Browning forces are
If so partisan that they have employed
U several hundred workers, who have
D become so partisan that they are
f fighting desperately for their candi-
dates. They are so partisan that they
become absolutely angry if their ac
H tion boosting their candidates is re-
snntcd. This can also be said of Mr.
Campbell's workers. Such action is
not non-partisan. But If the people
had the right to recall the candidates
then it would be the people choosing
their own commissioners instead of
men spending thousands of dollars to
be elected.
"We are Informed that the Fell-
Browning people propose to employ
one thousand five hundred people dur-
ing the last week before election, fig-
uring on tho plan as follows: If fifteen
hundred people are hired to work for
Browning and Fell they naturally will
themselves vote for Browning and
Fell and each undoubtedly could in-
fluence his better-half to join him. In
I that way tho Browning-Fell combine
I J are figuring upon getting three thou-
sand votes. It Is claimed that this
would not be buying votes. We are
r advised that Heywood and Jones do
k not Intend to hire any workers with
such object in view. A legitimate
canvass to learn where the Heywood-
Jones-Larson-'Bagley people reside so
that on election day the carriages
will call for them, is all that the
Heywood-Jones-Larson-Bagley ticket
E will undertake.
One worker said yesterday that he
t4 expected to get $5 per day for the last
f week working for Fell and Browning;
that ho would, tako the money and
then vote as ho saw fit. When asked
W if he thought that was fair, he said:
"Well, I think it iB as fair as tho
Fell-Browning people are, that they
hired him presumably to -work for,
them but really to buy his vote; that
he would not be guilty of a crime in
B selling his vote but he would work
HI ior tne moaey alright but his voto
never would he part with for money.
H It is rumored around town that the
light trust has agreed to spend $50,-
000, If necessary, to elect Fell and
Browning. That will put quite a lot
MM of money in circulation, 'and the
MMm Standard hopes the boys will have a
MW good timo on this money. "Wo think
there Is nothing wrong in pulling
II Sm Brwning's or Mayor Foil's leg.
They have been pulling the leg of
the city of Ogden for four years past
and it looks like fair play to let the
people pull the mayor's or Sam's leg.

lng by less than two dozen people I
behind closed doors. The Ogden
Standard at that time pointed out that I
they were owned by the light com- I
pany and that statement sinco then I
has been proved. I
Why is J. S. Campbell positively I
non-partisan? Who does ho represent 1
and who is back of him? What is N
the secret behind his candidacy? I
Think of it, he is the owner and pro- fl
prietor of a big wholesale house and I
he promises to throw it all to the I

Governor Fielder in his letter urg- H
ed the president to spend next sum-
mer in New Jersey lo receive "the E
glad tidings'' of his renomlnatlon. D
The president only smiled when that
was mentioned. When Mr Wilson B
announced that ho would accept the B
Invitation he was warmly applauded n
and all the delegation Insisted on
shaking hands with him. I
His acceptance means he will not H
return to Harlakenden house, the res- S
Idence of Winston Churchill, at Corn- H
ish, N. H., which he has occupied gfl
each summer since becoming presi- R
dent. The Long Branch mansion is j
not as secluded as Harlakenden house
but is larger.
