Many sentiments have been expressed as to the significance of the Victory loan, and, from the many, the following are selected: "You bought bonds for war; now buy them for peace." "If it is worth dying for, it's worth paying for." "We've won the war; let's pay the bill. ' "How much is liberty worth to you?' "Be as liberal as the boys were brave. "If you want to belong to his Union, pay your due?." "Help the government mof up, Tins is the ictory loan." "We gave it for war; let's give it for peace." "Our boys paid; have you?" As a matter of fact the great test is not whether victory shall be made endjring by jying bonds, but .t is t!Js: Have the American people the fine sense of duty which will impel them, even after the excitement of war has passed, to uphold the ob ligations which they contracted under the strain of war? Under great mental exhilaration any one can be heroic, but the Hift iea' patriot is he who, in quiet moments, is ready and willing to serve his country by making sacrifices. The war is virtually ocr and the slacker knows he is not facing the steady gaze of those who are inquiring as to his stewardship, but the real American will give as freely now as when there was a search H 'ng out of the shirks and slinks. DRUG EVIL IN OGDEN AND ELSEWHERE. 'Tl .01 One must accept with mental reservation the statements on the use of narcotics which are being circulated in press dispatches from III! New York. The Standard has a budget of "news" from the bureau of the New York World, in which this paragraph appears: A dispatch dated April 21, from Washington, D. C, states that federal officials will urge our reprcsentati cs at the peace conference to endeavor to secure an interna tional arrangement for the enforcement of anti-narcotic laws, this action being, in their opinion, demanded by the increased use of narcotic drugs in the United States and the difficulty expeiienced in controlling their distribution. The dispatch also states that the people of the United States use five times as much narcotic drugs per capita as do the people of China, and it is feared that, with the ad vent of prohibition, the number of drug addicts will greatly increase unless the most rigid measures are taken to sup press the traffic. In this connection, Daniel C. Roper, com 'L missioner of revenue, in his annual report says, "Compre hensive and effective administration of the narcotic laws must be based upon an international pcrspectie, support ed by international agreements, and co-operative interpre- tion or policy under which the drug world trade may be adequately policed." Secretary of the Treasury Glass, of whose department the internal revenue bureau forms a part, will forward a statement regarding this matter to the president within the next few days. The report of Repre sentative Henry T. Rainey, chairman of the committee to investigate the use of drugs in the United States, has been ready for sometime but the figures contained in it are so alarming that it has been held up by the treasury depart ment officials for the purpose of careful verification be i fore it is published. The report shows more than 1,500. 000 narcotic drug addicts in the United Stales, of which number New York City is said to have nearly 300,000. It may be true that this country has more users of narcotic drugs than any other country, but that weakness has developed over a long Ij period of years during which whiskey has been openly sold in nine Jmi! tenths of the states in very large quantities, and may we not make wl'1 the deduction that whiskey has paved the way for drugs? These "drug" stories arc being circulated as a defense of whiskey. They may prove to be boomerangs. For years the American people have been trained to resort to drugs. But it is our opinion that the cocaine, morphine and opium habits have decreased since those drugs have been legislated against by the federal government. Ogden, up to six years ago, had shivering, shaking men and women f who. in their nervous twitching! as they went about the streets, dis closed they were victims of strong drugs. Our jails always had one H or more of the unfortunates. Of late there has been no outward evi dence of this debasement, and. if Ogden is not the exception, we are justified in saying that the drug evil is rapidly decreasing in the Unit- jl'i ed States. Ml i DEADMAN'S GULCH FIFTY YLVIS AGO. On the old line of the Central Pacific, as one travels west from Og den. a bend in the road brings to view "Dcadman's Gulch." When lU the I men Pacific and Central Pacific were racing to cover the gap which separated them, there was a great camp of railroad laborers! at Dcadman's Gulch, working on the heavy grade and great "fill" which led up to the summit of Promontory range and the place where the golden spike was driven. In the tented city were gathered men ill. of every type. The honest, honorable I borers were there and along-' side were the gunmen and outlaws who had been on the frontier. This region at that time was in the wild and woolly west. Although parts' I. of Utah had been settled twenty-two years and Ogden was a quiet! Milage of some 2500 inhabitants, out from the settlements the trav l elr ,soon found nilf m no-man's land. So at this camp in Dead-! I man's Gulch there were few of the restraints of the law and disputes fgl were quickly ended by the crack of guns. Old timers will tell you that more untimely deaths occurred on the grade at Promontory than at any other point on the transcontinental I road. And almost over night, as the rails were spiked down fifty years! I ago. the camp at Deadman's Gulch" disappeared and with it went the badman, the gunman and the outlaw, never to return to this III I parl Utah. So on May 10, when the event of 1869 is celebrated, we shall also Jlj observe one of our earl.er victories which broucht peace and the se cunty and progress which attend orderly, regulated, just govern jf menu THROWING THE SWITCH ON A THROUGH TRAIN. When the officials of tho Weber club learned that Walter P. Hlnes and his distinguished associates were to pass through Ogden, they sent a telograDi which did not receive the response they expected, and then they resort ed to more telegraphing and fina'Iy the.V succeeded In upsetting the entire schedule of the travelers to tho extent of taking an hour from Salt Lake and an hour from other points. This is not boing obtrusive. It is nothing more than coming out from in under an obscuring fog and letting strangers know we are a big part of the west. It is asserting ourselves. Ogden too long has been playing the part of the over-modest, bashful boy and it is well that Ogden is beginning to stand squarely on its footing, with head erect. The Weber club has our thanks for calling attention to the importance ofi Ogden Eastern men going over the country do not know Ogden much more Intimately than we do Tuscaloosa. Ala., or Way Cross, On., both junctions of several railroads, but today Mr Ilines and .Mr Ilohlon are talking of Ogden's artesian wells which can supply a city of 100.O00 and they are telling others of the intrinsic worth of this city. Let us keep up the good work It Will help to giv io Ogden tho publK ity which our industrial resourcos war rant. nn New Government For Russia Is Planned in America . NEW YORK.

EUROPE MUST IMPORT TONS OF FOODSTUFFS PARIS. April 27 Tn the harvest year from August 1918 to Aupust, 1919, Europe must import 29.000.000! tons of foodstuffs from overseas and ! to moot this there is available a total of about 35.000.000 tons. Herbei' C Hoover, chairman of the food section; of the supreme economic council said today in reviewing the present world food situation. Tho supply available is sufficient to meet the needs of Europe, but shipping conditions ire not satisfactory on account of strikes in many countries r.nd. as a result there is no question that the entire American surplus will be absorbed "We are now at the worst phase of' he European famine that was inevli- able after this world war." Mr. Hooer .said. Tho United States. Mr. Hoover con-; tlnued, will supply to Europe during tho yeat ending next August food-, stuffs alued at $2,500,000,000. Enemy countries and neutrals will pay cash' for what they receive while the allied countries aro being aided by funds ap propriated by congress. The food relief authorities are do ing their be; to control the effect of the large demands on the American market. In connection with this Mr Hoover mentioned tha' a sta'.ement by him on the possible price of wheat hud been misinterpreted in some qunr-j ters. The relief administration proposes! that the last of tho food ships under! its control shall sail from tho United States before July 1st The harvest in Europe will then enable Europe to go on for some months wthout assistance. NEW YORK, April 27. Herbert Hoover, director general of the Ameri can relief administration, has called on the governments of Rumania. Po- land, Serbia and Czecbo-Slovakia, to establish commissions for the ration ing and rehabilitation of their coun tries after the relief organization di-j continues its work nt tho completion Of the next European harvest, the ad ministration's offices announced to night. American relief work cannot be car ried on indefinitely, Mr Hoover de elared. citing the press of world fiance; and urging the necessity that Euro-; pean populations return to productive labor as soon as obsiacles in the way of such operation are removed. oo I Great Medicine j Made From Corn Silk Ex cites Favorable Comment.
