I PROUD OF OUR American troops so far bstve not been mastered by the Germans in any of the clashes on the western front. Northwest of Toul, the Bochra were driven back in a hand-to-hand conflict, nnd yesterday to the east of Amiens, near VUlers-Bretonneux, which is the Germans' closest approach to the rail road center which they aimed to take, the Americans, after a baptism of fire which lasted two hours, received the German storm troops in a manner to add glory to the achievement of Amer ican arms. Up to now there has been nothing discouraging from the men under Pershing, who have proved they can meet the Huns in any form of warfare and beat them. But the boys must expect reverses, however capable and courageous they may be. Before this war is over, there will be days of anxiety, but being pos sessed of an unconquerable spirit, which comes from never bavinc been defeated, the American people will not falter or grow weary. They will go on until the German la tamed. oo GET RID OF THE MAD DOGS. When The Standard, a few years ago, directed attention to the danger of a spread of rabies which then af flicted the coyotes in eastern Nevada, a local writer indulged in a column of sarcasm over a prediction which he treated as absurd. In fact, the poorly informed fellow said the scare over rabies was nothing more than a wild dream. Since then we have seen the mad animals work their way over much of the intermountain country, following the sheep trails. Anyone who pave the subject thought was not surprised when mad dogs began to appear around here, as Ogden is directly in the path of the sheep which are moved from the Wa- Isatch range to the desert and bacK, at different seasons of the year. The first of this week a rabid doc attacked the dogs of Liberty, in Ogden valley and before the animal was killed, he had bitten nearly every dog in the community. This is a reminder that this rabid dog crusade must not end until all dan ger has passed. The death in Ogden of a man who was bitten was an impressive lesson, and now with this unmistakable re currence of the mad-dog outbreak, no efforts should be spared to eliminate Ihe menace to human life. on I GERMANS DOING THEIR PART. Have you noted the large number of German names in our casualty lists? It begins to look as though the Ger man blood of this country is doing its part. , Here in Ogden. a young man of Ger man parentage enlisted, and when he reached the aviation field, he was not content to be an assistant, but pro ceeded to qualify as a flier, and is now I gaining rapid promotions This same thing is going on all over the United States. Yesterday the St. Louis and Minne apolis districts had heavily oversub scribed their bond quotas. Both dis tricts have a largo German popula Lieut. Eddie Rickenbacber is now one of America's most brilliant bird men on the French front. At last the Germans in this coun try fully understand they are fighting to keep the world a place fit to live in. Carl Schurz and his compatriots came to America to escape the very thing the German military leaders are now seeking to inflict not only on Ger many but on all countries. A German slave mabttr is no better than an American slave master. Americans fought American to banish slavery. Why should not the German blood of this country be given to pre vent the crushing out of Individual rights and opportunities, even though German must fight German9 It is difficult for men to get away from clan and creed, and be really broad and philosophical, and It all comes from the little vanities of life, which at best are empty flatteries. In our daily contact, we measure men, not by their blood, but by perform ance. We demand that an American be a gentleman, honorable In all his dealings and possessed of heart and soul Otherwise, we prefer the com pany of a person nf foreign birth. And that which we demand of the individ ual, we should exact of a nation. FIGHTING IN PALESTINE AND MESOPOTAMIA. However much the British have suf fered in reverses in other parts of the war zone, they can point with pride to their campaigns in Palestine and Meso potamia. True, they did not make a sood hejnnnmc in Mesopotamia, as Gen. Townshend lost hip entire com mand in his retreat from near Bag dad, after having defeated the Turks all i he way up from the coast to iphon. but since then the British forces hare been destroying Turkish armies in rapid order. The best feature of this campaign ing is that only two white divisions are in Palestine and three in Mesopo tamia, the gTeat body of the troops beinc made up of men from India and Egypt With this comparatively small leavening of whitemen. the British are keeping a large body of Turks en gaged at the back door of the sultan's empire, who otherwise might be drawn into the trenches on the west front. oo MANY VIOLENT DEATHS IN A FAMILY. The Standard extends sympathy to the Campbell family of Ogden. On Wednesday. Alexander S. Camp bell was accidentally killed near Kenil worth, Utah. That afternoon John S. Campbell, of Ogden, a brother broke his collar bone while driving an au tomobile near Logan. A nephew, FL Leo Campbell, was injured while working on a tractor near Idaho Falls. The Campbell home in Salt Lake is un der quarantine for scarlet fever. Five years ago Arthur M, Camp bell, one of the most respected engin eers on the Denver & Rio Grande, whose home was in Ogden, was killed in a collision. In 1910 James M. Camp bell, another brother, was killed on a Bamberger train In 1916, Jennie Campbell, daughter of J. S. Campbell, was drowned in Ogden river. Tragedy has pursued the family for years, until the nerve strain must be near the breaking point THE SCUM COMING TO THE SURFACE. For a conservative paper. The Sat urday Evening Post in the following editorial uses some very strong lan guage in voicing its objections to those in America who have received so many blessings from this country in times of peace and are now repaying the nation with treachery and consnlr- acy: "American carelessness, cussedness and politics are responsible for the in ternal situation that has caused so much anxiety during the past year. In the heat and stir of preparation the scum has risen to the top. "As America has turned her face to ward the enemy every dirty cur in the country has snapped at her heels. We have found that enemy intrenched in America as well as in France sap ping in our schools, undermining in our press, burrowing in our municipal and state governments sniping when ever a back has been turned. "It looks bad, but it is only scam, and beneath it Americanism is com ing to the boiling point. We are in the healthy condition of knowing what the trouble is. We have been too free with America giving everything and demanding nothing. We have had a happy-go-lucky, don't-care theory that nobody need worry about what the un assimllated foreigner did or thought: that everything would come out right , in the end; that there was some magic ! in our air that would transform the lazy, the weak, the vicious, into hard working, honest, desirable American citizens. We have considered the "rights" of every nationality in the world except our own. "The traitors look like a formidable ;lot. but they are not These men are simply scum pikers, grafters, liars land demagogues insincere, selfish 'and dishonest who will run like rats once America recognizes that even I rats can spread malignant disease. "We must start by cleaning them 'out of the schools, the pres and the government. The man who plays par tisan politics and appeals to class and race is self-exposed work agam-i I him; vote aeaints him; throw him out. Never rabid what he calls himself Republican, Democrat. Socialist or Nonpartisan Leaguer the label is camouflage. We need brains, hone?fy and Americanism this year It is bet ter to keep ten men out of office on suspicion, than to let one traitor in. And not all the traitors are Germans or pro-Germans. Not all the profit eers are millionaires or employe There is something peculiarly vile about the American who tries to make money or office out of this war who, while other men die for an ideal, snouts out gold or place among the graves." oo FREE PHOTOS Beautiful photo of Francis Bushman tonight just a lim ited number avail able.

There is no rea son to suppose that the lord-mayor of Dublin will be refused a passport to America by the secretary for Ireland to whom he has decided lo apply, Sayfl a dispatch from Dublin to the Dail News today. The correspondent, how ever, in alluding to the purpose of the proposed deputation to lay the case of the Irish organization opposing con scription before President Wilson, adds : "People here are inclined to donbl whether President Wilson will receive the deputation and. if he decline, there would be some risk of a conflict of American and Irish opinion. The deputation hopes, anyway, to be al lowed to lay its case before the Amer ican people in a great speaking tour." IRISH HOME RULE POSTPONED. LONDON. May 2.

This, according to some. lobby cor respondents of the morning newspa pers, covers the fact that the introduc tion of the bill has been deferred and hopes of its presentation next week have been abandoned. The Daily News .-ays the govern ment has met wtih serious diffli ill ties in its Irish policy and cannot find a successor to Baron Wimbourne who has resigned the lord lieatcnantship, while the committee appointed to draft a bill up to this time has ae1 tied virtually nothing except the pre amble.

It is nowise improbable, adds the Daily News, that this course will be adopted in the near future. oo Wanted for big production of Cinderella, fifty boys and girls, only those who can sing.
