j An Independent Newspaper, put
lialied every evening except Sunday,
without a muzzlo or a club.
The Examiner declares the Stand
' ard has falsified. Wo quote from
the morning paper, in reference to the
coming railroad celebration in Ogden,
1 as follows:
"The work before the city Is
one of such magnitude that In
dividual claims for the inception
of the idea can only become petty
in significance where the claims
are known to be false and made
simply to obtain a momentary
place in the public mind. As
usual in such cases assertions
have been put forth as to having
'first suggested' the celebration
1 and to 'have first suggested' con
gressional action, the claims being
adsolutely false."
The statement -in the Standard,
j which brought forth such a nasty
'fling, follows:
"When the Standard first -suggested
that the Union Pacific cele
bration in Ogden in 1919 be made
a world exposition and gover-n-
ment aid be asked, some thought
we were aiming too high, but
Senator Sutherland's Introduction
of a resolution appealing to con
gress for assistance is proof that
' the senator expects to meet with
success. And why not?"
I From the foregoing It is seen tnat
the Standard did not lay claim to
i originating the Idea of a celebration.
The credit is entirely due to Mr.
Winchell of the Union Pacific; but
that the Standard did first suggest
that the celebration be made a
out by the following editorial repro
duced in Us entirety from the Stand
!ard of Feb 23, just one week after
, 'the first informal announcement by
j iMr. Winchell:
J , Wrhen the Union Pacific railroad
was completed In the spring jDf
j ' 1869, the Central Pacific and
i . Union Pacific became united at
Promontory Point, on the old line
f : north of the lake, 53 miles west
' of Ogden.
There was a building rivalry on
i between the two roads, .as both
j were aiming, to cover as much
;' mileage as possible, being paid
; by the government a rich bounty
; in land and money.
Later the Union Pacific sold to
the Central Pacific the 53 miles of
track west of here and made Og
den Its terminal.
When that big event of 1869 is
I celebrated in i919, the Southern
Pacific railroad, built on the
f foundation laid by the Central
I Pacific, should participate and
' help make this fiftieth annlver
j sary the greatest railroad ce'lebra
I ! tion ever held in the United

tunity presented for the railroads
of the country to demonstrate to
what extent they enter into the
affairs of the people of the United
States and how great has been
thoir part in building up tho coun
try. No exposition is scheduled be
tween now and the railroad anni
versary. Why not make this a
railroad World's fair. The war
will bo over, and tho nations can
be invited to participate in a re
conciliation at the invitation of
the railroad men of the United
Ogden can be made equal to the
occasion with the assistance of the
Union Pacific already promised;
the Southern Pacific, the State of
Utah, the congress of the United
Btates, and all the railroads.
Nothing more, is necessary in proof
as to who Is the falsifier.
This discordant noto from the morn
ing paper might have come from a
peevish child, affected by the hot
Once more the Russians are pene
trating the passes of the Carpathians,
preparatory to a vigorous invasion o
Hungary. When the great Russian
drive in the winter of 1915 brought
the Czar's troops in sight of the plains
of Hungary, tho allies- celebrated the
event as forecasting the breaking
down of the Austro-Hungarian forces.
Later came tho great attack at Dun
ajec, in which the Germans aiding the
Austrians, broke through the Russian
I grand duke's forces in the Car
pathians The Russians would be Inviting a
repetition of the disaster of 1915, if
they were not better equipped ami
: The Teutons seem incapable of
again striking the powerful blows
which they delivered at Dunajec. The
year of constant fighting since then
has had a wearing down effect. For
the first time since tho opening of tho
war, the allies are on the offensive
at all points. The Teutons no longer
are in a .position to withdraw troops
from one front to overwhelm their foes
at another. ,
In France along tho Italian border
and from Riga to Kolomea the guns
of the entente are roaring in a cease
less attack and at all those points
the strain must be Intense.
There are indications that the end
of the war is in sight. Unless the
Germans are playing a very deep
game of drawing on the Russians, in
order to deal them a finishing blow, the
present Russian drive, operating bU
multaneously with the British, French
and Italians attacks, should bring a
.crisis before the end of the summer.
The San Francisco Bulletin, in an
article on "People and Taxes," says:
"Already some thinkers are begin
ning to worrv over the tendency of tho
income and inheritance taxes to dissi
pate centralized capital. The the
ory is that large amounts of capital,
if left In private hands, will be put
to socially productive uses. If one
has a million dollars he can lend it
to a railroad, and It is supposed that
this increases the community's stock
of wealth more rapidly than the uses
which the government makes of its
money. So It is argued that it is bet
ter to tax one million people one dol
lar each than to tax one person a mil
lion dollars. A person with only a
dollar is more likely to spend it for
something which is to bo immediately
used up, like food or theater tickets,
than to make a capital Investment
of it. It goes up like smoke, and that
is the end of it.
"But to Btop with this is to misread
the fact of that great wealth, In mod
ern times, is nothing more than cen
tralized control over men's labor, and
that this control is frequently despotic
and is never used wholly for the com
mon good. A million dollars, In mod
ern America, gives JuBt as much pow
er and allows it to be put to as bad
a use as that possessed by medieval
lords in their lands, castles and armeri i
ruffians. A hundred million dollars
or a billion dollars gives more power
than is consistent with democracy.
When it perpetuates itself through
untaxed Incomes and unrestricted in
heritances, as many American for
tunes have showed a canny tendency
to do, it literally creates a hereditary
ruling class. This class has to live
on the income of capital usefully in
vested, but so did the medieval no
bility, when they compelled serfs to
look after the crops.
I "Then there are tangible values to
be considered. A dollar spent for an
amuflementmay yield, greater social
value than one invested in an Iron
mine. It is people that count most,
not iron and coal or gold and sliver." j

Brlgham City, July 20. A move- !
ment is on foot hero to purchase the
interests of the Devil's Gato reser-
voir promoters for Brigham City, 1
and thus relievo the threatened $
water shortago for culinary purposes
and geatly inceasing the present sup- j
ply for Irrigating purposes.
Engineer A. K. Chatfield and as- $
soclates of Salt Lako have filed on
tho surplus waters of Devil's Gato "f
valley during the thawing period and 'f;
propose building huge dams for im-
pounding tho water and selling it for ?,
Irrigating purposes on this side of f.
the mountains and in the Immediate
vicinity of Brigham, but, 'being unsuc-
cessful in disposing of the water by
contract, the promoters, it is under-
stood, want to sell their rights. This i
Is what the city wants and needs,
and If the figures for buying the
rights of the engineers and the build- i
lng of dams, are within the reach of i
the cltv. a deal will likelv bo made. &
The undertaking is one of the biggest
ever considered here, and If carried 'i
out would insure an abundance of
water for scores of years. Water ,
would be drawn from the reservoirs
for lrlgatlon puposes, while a por-
tion of the present irrigation supply
would toe piped from the springs to $
the city reservoirs and used In the $
waterworks system.
The Commercial club Is working 8
with the city officials on the project,
and the club has appointed Wm. T. !
Davis and James Jensen to make a
complete investigation of the proposl-
tion, the costs of building the dams
and buying the interests of the Salt
Lake promoters. Their findings will i
be reported to the citizens at a mass n
meeting to be held in the near fu- i
ture. -.

A stranger, giving his name as Pat- f
rick, wont into the general manager's 5
office of the O., L. & I. Railroad Co.
this morning about nine o'clock, and 5
dlsjolntedly announoed that a conduc- I
tor had "beat him up." His state- I
ment was not debatable but instead
strongly substantiated by an ugly gash I
on his right cheek. He was directed jj
to tell his troubles to the superintend- ?
ent of transportation, which ho did to ft
the best of his ability. His account i
of the alleged 'beating was so belated f
that he was advised to call again when j
he was sober. The substance of the &
few scattered statements he did make, f
was that several days ago he came j
from Salt Lake to Ogden on the Bam-
berger and not having a ticket "gave
the conductor security" what that a
security was he refused to divulge
and that today when he went Into v
tho terminal thiB same conductor met
him and proceeded to give him a f
thumping. I
