WHAT A POOR BOY
j CAN DO.
j j ! General Pershing's history is an as-
. ; surance that, if bulldog grit is neces-
sary to tho winning oC tho war, Ger-.
' many will be defeated.
J i His biographer says Pershing was
i j born poor. The father of tho general
was a section foreman at Laclede, Mo.
r Pershing won his way to West Point
t by tho hardest kind of work. After
I leaving the academy, he was seven
years in tho service before he received
a promotion. .
During the Geronimo uprising In
Arizona, he was one of tho command
ing officers in tho long chase after tho
. . renegade Apaches and made ono ride
' of MO miles over mountain trails in
T , 48 hours.
I - Later he was sent to the Philippines,
V, where he distinguished himself in a
i fight on the Sultan of Bacolod
f In 1906, Pershing was selected by
r , President Roosevelt as a brigadier gen-
I eral, being promoted over the heads ot
I- S62 officers.
j When America declared war on Ger-
j many, President Wilson named Pcr-'
l shing to lead our armies, in France.
I Pershing was the fifth general in tho
f United States army, the honor having
j! been bestowed on Washington, Grant,
ft Sherman and Sheridan prior to Per-
ij : shing's promotion.
I PLATINUM AS A WAR '
' Responding to the call of the' United
States government, a number of Og
J den dentists have broken up parts of
1 furnaces to obtain platinum for mili
J Platinum at present is many times I
: more valuable than gold, as it is being
extensively employed in the making of!
war equipment and there is only a
I very limited supply since the closing
of the mines in the Ural mountains,
John Barrett, of tie Pan-American
Union claims platinum was first dis
i covered in Colombia, in gold mining,
and the metal was thrown into the
i waste pile by the gold refiners.

f - RETIRE!
jj Up in Montana, Miss Rankin is to
aspire to be senator, opposing Sena-
j tor Walsh, one of the leaders of the
l, Peinccratio party,
j ' Oer in Nevada. Ann Martin is also
) j a candidate for (Jaltod States senator.
1 . Both female politicians should be de-
j: ! Miss Rankin made herself ildlculous
j1 ' at the opening of the war, having an
j; i attack of hysterics in the house when
1 j , called on to vote on the war rcsolu-
j. tion. When she recovered sufficiently
to voice nor sentiments, the lady voted
In opposition to war and cve-r since
has been explaining. Slio also has been
a sympathizer with tho I. W. W. of
Butte. Tho two defects should make
her return to congress Impossible.
Miss Ann Martin is a perennial in
the political botanical garden of .Ne
vada. Ann always is ready to accept
office, or otherwiso inflict herself on
tho public. Sho was ono of tho silly
women who insulted the President of
tho United Slates by parading in front
of the Whito House, during the first
days of the war, carrying banners
bearing slurring criticisms.
Miss Rankin and Miss Martin should
make themselves, in these distressing
timcsr more useful and serviceable
than mere offices seokers.
INCREASE THE SIZE
OF THE ARMY.
This country is now sending soldiers
to Franco at the rate of 100,000 a
week. With over one million men
across the ocean, this drain on the
cantonments threatens to reduce tho
reservoir of man-powerto a low point,
unless tho president issues another

have more than a force large enough''
to defeat the Germans. '

This country, should not slow up In
its preparation until victory Is ,made

sentials to victory is an army of at
least double tho men now in arras.
- AS TO THE U-BOAT
What a wide gulf separates Vice
Admiral von Capelle of the German
navy and Admiral Sims of our own sea
forces. The German admiral claims
tho U-boats are making great head
way, sinking an average of five large
ships a dny, while Admiral Sims de;
dares the U-boat peril has been re
duced until ship construction is over
taking tho losses and U-boats are be
ing put down faster than they are
We prefer to accept the word of our
American, admiral who, with the char
acteristic truthfulness of-our naval of
ficers, is never found resorting to false
If the German admiral had been tell
ing the truth, the United States would
have been helpless in seeking to aid
the allies on the battle front. Trans
ports in great fleets could not have
been sent through the war zone with
out at least suffering severe losses.
As it is, not one American transport,
convoyed by American warships, has
been sunk, and only two loaded trans
ports have been torpedoed.
Over ono million men havo been
shipped to France with a loss of only
291. This Is a record which in itself
proves Admiral Von Capelle to be a
SPEECH IS WELL
President Wilson's Fourth of July
speech Is being most favorably ro
colved by tho press of tho country.
Even tho strong partisan papers of tho
opposition aro laudatory. Tho San
Francisco Chronicle says:
"In the name of the American peo
ple, tho President at Mount Vernon
declared that this war shall not stop
until the arbitrary power of ono people
over another has been utterly de
stroyed; that those who havo attempt
ed to exert such shall be beaten to
their knees and beg for mercy, and the
freedom of all nations and all peoples
to govern themselves and develop ac
cording to their instincts, traditions
and aspirations shall be permanently
"That was the substance of tho
President's Mount Vernon speech, and
the American nation will back him
up. He felicitously states our purpose
In one sentence. It is tho 'right of law
based upon the consent of tho gov
erned and sustained by tho organized
opinion of mankind.'
"Note his words sustained, not by
tho organized -armies of the world, but
by its 'organized opinion.' And organ
ized opinion needs no armies and na
vies to support its decisions if tho
predatory of mankind are not allowed
to have, armies to resist organized
, "The President does pot say that
peace, when it comes, shall bo assured
and made permanent by the disband
ment of the United States army and
tho scrapping of the United States
navy all other nations doing the same
but he has repeatedly said, and he
repeated at Mount Vernon, what would
be folly if armies and navies are to
persist. If every nation is to arm as it
pleases and all nations unite to main
tain other 'armies and navies strong
enough to overwhelm any combination
qf national armies and navies, then
would militarism overshadow every
thing else and mankind would delve
only that it might be prepared to fight.
' "Tho President never said that. But
no one denies to him .the ; possession
of a logical mind, and it is absurd
to suppose that he does not see as well
ns others the conclusion whidh inevit
ably results from tho premises which
ho proposes to establish. Presumably
he thinks the time not yet ripe for
himself to announce his conclusion. -"Briefly,
the President proposes:
(1) Tho destruction of arbitrary pow
er iH'erywhero; (2) Ibe settlement bv
oilier means ttan ."fined force of nil
International controversies; (3) no
government anywhere without the con
sent of the governed (I) the establisn
mpnt of an organization of peace to ef
fect all the foregoing.
NATION WILL BE
When members of Utah's next legis
lative body are being elected this fall,
this question should be put:
"Are you for national p'rohlbjTion
and will you vote to ratify the prohi
bition constitutional amendment?"
Assurances are given that the Unit
ed States will bo "dry" within eighteen
months. Already 12 states have accept
ed tho amendment, and, strange to re
late, five of those states have been
counted on to vote for the "wet" side.
Even Kentucky and Massachusetts
have ratified the amendment.
There are 27 bone-dry states, which
with the five wet slates that have
acted favorably, make a total of 32.
Only four more states aro necessary
to make the nation "dry." There arc
three states counted as wet in wh'.ch a
majority of the population has voted
dry In the form of local option. That
gives 35 states. Then as possibilities
are Wyoming, Nevada, Connecticut,
Illinois, California, New York, Ohio,

MRS. AL HARDY B
lltfl 01 LIFE BY
. PISTOL SHOT
Because of grief over being separat
ed from her husband who was drafted
into tho national army about two
weeks ago, Mrs, Al Hardy, 29 years of
age, shot and killed herself last night
shortly after 8 o'clock at the home of
Albert Garner, 3740 Washington ave
Mrs. Hardy, a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs Albort Garner, had been living
at Ely. Nov., and camo here two weeks
ago when her husband was sent to
Camp Lewis In a dralt contingent. Herl
body was found in the kitchen of the
homo, a bullet wound in the lemple
and a 32 calibre automatic revolver, to'
explain the situation, lying near it.
When the body was found tho police
were summoned and Sergeant J. F.
Kelliher and Detectives J. L. Hobson
and R. H. Chambers responded, finding
the woman apparently dead. City Phy.
sician W. R. Drown also arrived on the
sceno soon after the police and pro
nounced the woman dead.
While the police held to the theory
that the woman killed herself, a defi
nite opinion as to whether the shoot
ing was accidental or Intentional
would not be given. ,
The body was removed to the Lind
quist undertaking parlors.
TO HEAR DRAMATIC
The Tabernacle was filled to
flowing and many people were turned
away last night when the program
under the auspices of the Mutual Im
provement aSSOClatinriQ nf tllA tlircn -
Weber county stakes was rendered,
and in which a dramatic reading of
"The Life of Christ" was given by
Bertha Eccles-Wright who recentlv
returned from the east. The reading o"f
the beautiful piece was exceptionally
good and the vocal and Instrumental
music that filled out the program was
also pleasingly, rendered.
The music for the dramatic reading
was taken from "The Messiah" by
Handel and was directed by Prof.
Squire Coop, who also gave the piano
accompaniment during the evening.
The vocalists were Margerv Dodge -Warner,
soprano, Mrs. Evelvn Bulah,
contralto, William Cook, tenor, and P.
Melvin Peterson, baritone. Arthur Fre
ber, violinist, also assisted.
A stage setting for the occasion was
arranged featuring scenes typical of
tho far east and Mrs. Wright appeared
in costume to read tho story of the
Master which was written in connect
ed from the four gospols.
Nearly an hour before the program
opened every available seat in the
Tabernacle was taken.
Three Logical Points for
Heavy Enemy Attack Are
WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN
FRANCE, July 7. Resumption of tho
German offensive against some part of
the allied line Is believed to be near.
It may be said that there arc three
logical points for the enemy's attack
the Chateau Thierry rogloh, the line
north of Chalons and In the neighbor
hood of Abbeville, In the Flanders sec
tor. An nsaault north of Chalons or
against Abbeville would bo less costly
for him, but in the former he would
get less important territory than be
fore Abbeville, where his loss would
From the best information obtain
able. It appears that the Germans dur
ing the coming offensive will have be
tween thirty and forty divisions ca
pable of partiicpating in tho attack.
While awaiting tho coming storm,
the Americans aro discussing tho ex
ploit of a handful of comrades from a
certain unit who participated with the
the French in operations at Hill 204
yesterday. They wore invited to watch
the attack and, if they cared to, to
join in it and many more volunteered
than could be accommodated.
American aviators in tho Chateau
Thierry sector engaged in several
fights today and two enemy planes
wero shot down. It is impossible to
discuss American casualties except as
they are indicated In official state
ments. Therefore, the details of tho
fighting cannot be written now.
