WORK 01 S. P.
E. W Irwin, manager of the central
duplicating bureau of the Southern
Pacific system, with headquarters in
'San Francisco, arrived in Ogden this
morning to investigate the methods in
use at the local offices of the com
'pany and to suggest and arrange for
changes that will tend to save time,
and expense in the operation of the
company business In one respect,
Mr. Irwin is an efficiency expert in
matters of office routine.
Since the war began the great vol
ume of business handled by the com
pany and the loss of experienced help
through men joining the colors has
created a great pressure in all lines of
office work. It is the task of Mr.
Irwin to try to relieve the pressure. '
He was in conference with Chief Clerk
0 H. Johnson of the Salt Lake dhi
sion this morning on a plan to shorten
the work of the pay-roll system He
has a plan which will lessen the work
materially, while making it more ac
curate and will also bring the pay
day of the month around somewhat
Mr. Irwin will be In Oeden several
days, checking over the office ""ork at
the division headquarters.
We desire to express our gratitude
and appreciation for the many kind
nesses and sympathies extended by j
friends in the late illness and death
of our mother and especially do we
wish to thank the Utah -Idaho Central
Railroad company for courtesies ex- I

Great Work of Men Abroad.
Of our men abroad we gratefull)
acknowledge our appreciation. Tor
j" does and mines at sea and shot anc
! shell on land have held no fears for
them. Their escapes amid danger
have been countless. One (Frank M
America) wis knocked down by a
Zeppelm bomb in London but worked
all that night as usual merely an in
cident of the day's work in an office
building which has itself been hit by
such shells, another (Robert T. Small)
fell into the icy Somme, but rode 35
miles to cable the storv of the first
American in Peronne; another
(Charles T Thompson) was on the
highest rampart of the castle of Gor
izia when a shell buried it and him
under earth, but on that afternoon he
I wrote a story which thrilled ihe press
of Europe as well as of the United
States; another (Walter Whiffen) was
shot in the knee on a Russian obser
vation post; another (Charles S.
Smith ( after a bayonet and fist en
counter at Harbin escaped with pain
ful lacerations; another (James
Hickey) was blown through a glass
door by the Halifax explosion, but be
fore dressing his wounds was re
sourceful enough to find in a de.mol
ishe-d building the terminus of the
cable to the West Indie-, and sent by
way of Bermuda and Havana to New
York the first direct messages out of

Traditions of Journalism.
Through the years The Associated
Press has. by maintaining its stand
ards of accurate reporting, preserved
the best traditions of journalism. The
good name of The Associated Press
has not been impaired The public
confidence in our dispatches has
steadily grown, until millions of
readers now hesitate to give credence
to many published reports until as
sured that they were carried by our
association The sensational Zimmer
man note with its report of diplomatic
intrigue in Mexico was universally ac
cepted as genuine because The Asso ,
ciated Press sinl it vsas. The bom
bardment of Paris at long range was
ridiculed by other press associations
and by ordnance experts but the Paris
bureau of The Assoc i.'.led Tress which
for two days alone reported this start
ling development of the war to Amer
ican readers, convinced the skeptical
quite as thoroughly as did the official
confirmation of Its report. When the
government's action in taking over
the Dutch ships in American harbors
was reported in Europe several chan j
cellorles inquired in European capitals
whether The Associated Press an
nounced this fact. This reputation tor
telling the truth on the part of The
Associated Press is recognized now
quite as generally throughout diplo
matic and journalistic circles abroad
as it is in the United States and it isj

War Draws on Staff.
During the last year the war has
naturally drawn heavily upon our
staff. It has been the policy of the
management not only not to seek ex
emption from government service on
behalf of its employes, but to m
courage such service Men who a year
ago were serving this organization are
now by hundreds in the military and
I naval or other service of the United
States. Our operations in particular
have been able to render valuable
service for which their training has
peculiarly fitted them. W ithin a year
we have thus lost more than one - j
fourth of our -faff, and many mor?i
men are soon to leave us.
In this period of war as the activi- j
ties and responsibilities of our ser - !
vice have steadily increased, it is a
source of great pride to know that!
those upon whom the burden has fal
len have met their obligations with a
measure of faithfulness and intelli- 1
gence for which the management is
deeply grateful. By direction of the I
board ol directors and as a partial
recognition of the efficiency of the
staff, the life of each employe, in thci
United Slates, while in the service,
has been insured for the benefit of
his heirs or dependents in the sum
of 11,000. Because of the greater risk I
involved, established companies will
hot accept Insurance upon the lives of
our men in foreign service, but the j
board has itself assumed liability on!
their behalf.

cruisers assigned to block the canal
Concerning the engagement on the
mole where the Vindictive landed
storming parties, the account says
"The Daffodil after aiding to berth
the Vindictive should have proceeded
to land her own men but Captain Car
penter ordered her to remain as she
was with her bows against the Vin
dictive's quarter, pressing the latter
ship into the mole Her casualties
were one killed and eight wounded,
among the latter her commander. Lieu

the right eye t a shell splinter.
Terrific Loss On the Iris.
"The Iris' first attempts to make
fast to the mole ahead of the Vindic
tive failed as her grapnels were not
large enough to span the parapet Two
officers, Bradford and Hawkins,
climbed ashore and sat astride the par
apet, trying to make ihe grapnels fast,
until each was killed and fell down
between the ship and wall Comman

died next morning
"Lieutenant Spencer, though wound

Storming Parties.
"The demolishing and storming par
ties on the mole met with no resist
am e from the Germans other than In
tense and unremitting fire. The geog
raphy of the great mole with its rail
way line and many buildings, hangars
and store sheds was alreadv well
known and the demolition parfies
moved to their appointed work in per
feet order.

mole, but had the ill-fortune to foul
her propellor upon the net device
which flanks Its hore side. The pro

shorn batteries found her and pounded
her unremittingly until she bumped
into the. bank edged off and found her
self in the channel again, still some
hundreds of yards from the mouth of

With a total of $979,300 subscribed
in Ogden and Weber county to the
third Liberty loan, this district is ap
proaching the last davs of the cam -
paign with confidence that Ogden will
"go over" with honor. Yesterday's
subscription was among the smallest
of any day of the three-week drive
There was but $33,10n subscribed. To
day, however, saw quite an amount ol !
activity, probably because it is Lib-i
erty day and perhaps the most appro
priate day of the period in which to
subscribe Leaders of the campaign!
here declare today will easily cap the!
million dollar mark and that next !
Monday and Tuesday will witness the I
city's apportionment being reached,1
w hich is $1,370 000
The total number of subscribers is
now 3.424 there still being over a
thousand people In the city consid j
ered able to buy bonds who have not1
done so. Chairman A G Fell and Sec
retary O. J Stilwell have been en-
gaged during the past few davs going
over ihe list kept at loan headquar- I
tcrs In the Weber club, checking up,
to see who is supporting the issue and
Who is not After Saturday, remedial;
measures will be undertaken to bring
the "loan slackers" into the fold of i
good Americans.
In all of the theatres of the city to
night Four-Minute speakers will ap-I
pear and tell of the necessity at this,
time of subscribing for Liberty bonds.
These men have unselfishly given
their time and ability to aid the cam- I
paign and good results have been
It is thought that subscriptions bave
been held back somewhat by the fact j
that many people are not paid their
wages until the first of each month;
and they therefore have been unable!
to stan payments on a bond or buy
one outright. For this reason a rush
i5 expected on May 1 which will raise
the total considerably
Records of the federal reserve bank
of the Twelfth district show that Ihe
state of Utah had reached on April 24,1
$6,739,750 of its apportionment The
Twelfth district at the same time had
reached $152,213,500 of its apportion
ment of $210,000,000.
