i SALT LAKE, Juno 26. The mosl
i vivacious meeting of the convention
was held b the National Retail Gro
I cers' association yesterday and there
j, "was not much accomplished, duo to
the fact of technicalities betnt: brought
up every fen- ruinutep by different
delegates who insisted on following
the rulos and bylaw- of the consti"
I tion without any variation whatsoever
I Atlanta, Ga , was choseo as the next
convention city by a unanimous vote.
The convention being called to ord r
by President John H. Schaefer, the
chair was turned over by him to Vice
( President John Uliner State reports
carried over from Tuesday were then
read before the house.
One of the most stirring addresses
heard during the convention was that
given by the Rev Elmer I. Goshen.
' pastor of the First Congregational
church of this city. His opening words
were to the effect that some question
might be raided as to how he, a
i preacher, could know anything about
; the retail grocery business. He said
he had had dealings with the retail
merchants for the past twenty years
I and if in that time he had not. learned
j something about them, he consul. r d
himself a mighty poor business man.
He said any business to succeed must
I have honest principles behind it and
that honesty was the greatest asset in
the world to the man trying to build
a business today
The speaker was interrupted repeal
edly by applause and stamping of feet
when lie said that any senator or con
gressman that would go up and down
the country throwing dust into the
eyes of the people, that they might be
; blinded to the true principles regard
ing the peace program or in any way
! trying to hinder or retard its progress,
was a traitor to the country and should
he so treated; that the making over
1 of this whole world was bound to
eome. and the people of the old coun
I tries., who have been oppressed for
1 centuries, now see the dawn of liber
ty due to the fact that for the first
time in history fourteen nations have
'! come together and agreed upon a great
plan of democracy He further stat
ed that the present peace program
although not perfect, was a good work
ing program, and should have the sup
I port of every American.
John A. Green, former secretary ol
the National Retail Grocers associa
tion, gave an interesting talk on the
i present cost of high living and the
prospects for the future. He said re
j tailers at the present time have to b
I conservative In their purchases: tha1
I it is no wiser to overbuy now than i
ever was. Judicious buying is quit'
i as essential as ever. Perhaps, in soon
jj respects, it is rather more necessary
j since prices are high, and it is reason
I Hermitage I
able to expect that customers will
hesitate about their purchases in some j
degree While the feeling is hard to
hak off. yet, from his wide observa
tion, he said he was satisfied that the
questions relating to readjustments
and return to normal conditions are
settled. From now on business will I
develop rapidly and in the usual order
ly way, he predicted.
World Short of Food
Prices are not going to be much
lower than at the present time," Mr.
Green said, "because the world is short
of food, and it will take two or prob
ably three harvests to restore ihe
world to its normal state"
Mr. fireen said as long as a man
has a little money in his pocket to1
buy merchandise we will never get
,away from service. The telephone is
'here 'o stay, delivery is here to stay, I
jcharge accounts are here to stay; in,
fact, the whole business world is
made up of credit and confidence. The
person or firm giving the best service,
will always succeed.
Owing to the lack of time the reso
lutions committee was able to make
only a partial report, the most import
ant feature of which was a resolution
to eliminate what were termed trade
! abuses, and a committee of five was
delegated to investigate further this
resolution and report this morning.
Resolutions Drawn.
Other resolutions were drawn as fol
I lows :
1 The appropriation of $1500 to be
'given to the convention city.
2. Compelling manufacturers to
'give full packages,
; 3. For the establishment of uniform
weights and measure laws with a 100
pound unit base, and that a copy of
j the resolution be forwarded to the
peace congress and the United States
, congress.
4 The publications catering to the
retail trade refuse to accept adver
tisements from mail order houses.
This resolution was turned o er for
consideration to the committee of five
j on trade abuses.
5. To protect the retailer against
decline in prices.
, j 6. That all resolutions be brief.

In a lengthy report on the itinerant
i salesmen who take orders from the
citizens of Ogden and against whom
the Merchants of Ogden complained a
few days ago to the city commission,
City Attorney W. H. Reeder. Ir . 10
whom the complaint jwafl referred.
I stated that the city is powerless to act
in most cases as Lhe fall under the
interstate commerce act.
In his report the city attorney says:
"I am not aware at this time of any
persons operating in this city in vio
lation of Sections 486 and 492 (or
dinances), referred to in the Mer
chants' communication. If any such
I mailer is called to my attention I shall
, I be glad to investigate and prosecute
any and all violations
"In the application of these ordin
, ances, it is beyond the province of the
city to reach transactions that are
made in the course of interstate com
merce. The constitution of the Uni
ted States prevents the city, or even
the state, from interfering with ihose
transactions These ordinances refer,
therefore, only to local matters.
"Recently, 1 was called upon by a
man who wanted to sell automobile
accessories in this city and, upon in
quiring from him, learned that he was
selling goods of an eastern manufac
turer He admitted that he was re
quired to advance money for the pood-;
before the delivery could he made, thus
making a completed transaction be
tween himself and the manufacturer
I advised him that he would be oblic
cd to comply with our city ordinance,
as the sale made bv him was not an
interslale transaction but an Individ
ual sale after the completion of the
interstate transaction berween himself
and the manul.u turer.
"A few days ago, I was visited by
a man who expected to temporarily lo
cate in this city and sell typewriting
supplies as the representative of an
eastern firm. This man probably,
from what he stated though be did
not disclose the nature of bis agency
was engaged in interstate business.
Pursuant, to our policy of discourag
ing such business, unless positively
Legitimate, this man was discouraged
and consequently left the city.
"When in doubt as to whether any
'one is engaged in interstate matters,
lit has been my policj, subject to your
approval to discourage sales of any
kind in this city.
"Assuring you that I shall be glad
to co-operate with the commissioners
jin the enforcement of these and other
! city ordinances, this report Is rcspect
! fully submitted. (Signed) V. H.
I Reeder, jr., City Attorney."

Mrs Brown'fl statement, while in

"For the first time in years." said
Mrs. Brown, "I am able to eat what
I want without any bad after effects,
and I must say Tanlac is a perfectl j
grand medicine. 1 suffered with indi-i

often had severe pains in my stomach.
I had suffered so long that my nerves
Were all shattered and I had lost about J
all my strength.
"I have tried every kind of medicine
and have been under treatment many
times, but could only get relief for a
little while at a time, and then feel
worse than ever. In fact, tho older I
got the worse I suffered and I had j
long since lost hope of ever getting 1
relief. Finally a lady friend of mine.
Who had taken Tanlac. persuaded me j
to try it. and as I said, for the first
lime in all these years, I can eat what
I want and never suffer any whatever
from gas and pains in my stomach.
My headaches are gone too, and my
gnural health is better than for years
I have also gained several pounds in
weight. I am dnly too glad to recom

As B result of a brawl between the
! train crew and soldier passengers of
Union Pacific train No. 19. arriving
in Ogden yesterday, a returning soldier
j en route to Salt Lake, is to be tried
for drunkenness and disturbing the
j peace at Evanston.
According to a report of the affair
received in this city, about 20 soldiers,
1 just discharged from Fort Russell.
Wyo., boarded the train at Cheyenne.
iThc soldiers had a quantity of liquor
I in their possession, and became in
toxicated. One of the men was in such
la condition that every time one of the
' train crew would pass through the cars
he would offer insult by calling
"Slackers." Finally, when the conduc
1 tor came to collect the tickets, the
soldier struck him several times in the
face The conductor succeeded in put
ting the soldier in the seat but in do
ing so he ran the soldier's arm through
the window, and severely cut it. This
quieted the disturber who allowed the
conductor to administer first aid. The
conductor sent a telegram to Evanston
' to have a doctor meet the train.
When the train arrived in Evan
1 ston the soldier was placed under tho
care of the doctor who took him to the
station to dress his wound. By the
time the doctor had finished. Train No.
' 19 had left for Ogden. The soldier
i became so enraged that he started an
; other fight.
When Train No. 21 arrived in Evan
Iston, the intoxicated man ran to the
Dgine, climbed upon it and engaged
I the engineer in a fight. After a con
siderable struggle, the fireman manag
ed to separate the two and the soldier
was placed in charge of the Evanston
police and Is being tried todav on a
'charge of disturbing the neace.

Editor The Standard: A week ago
last Sunday evening there occurred on
the City Hall square a little affair
which received brief local mention In
the Utah papers but since then noth
ing has been Bald.
It was like this A cowboy preach
er was preaching on the City Hall
square and said something that hln
congregation did not like and they, or
it. mobbed him, at least tho papers
Bpoke of a mob which pursued him
at ross Twenty-fifth street, along Hud
son avenue, down Twenty-fourth atreet
and north on Grant avenue to the door 1
of the Baptist church, whore the cow
boy or preacher, which ever he wan,
found sanctuary and from which point
he was escorted by the police to the
city jail.
Ono paper said that ofter the cow
boy had been seated in the patrol
wugon the mob still tried to reach him
and one mobbist did succeed in land- 1
ing a blow
One report was that at the Baptist j
church the minister had just an
nounced his text and had gotten fair-1
ly started on his preliminary remarks
when the fugitive cowboy rushed in I
with an appeal for protection that l
brought the congregation to its feet I
and for the time being halted the ser
mon. One paper intimated that the cow-1
boy preacher had said something un-1
patriotic. Another account is that he
criticised the peek-a-boo waists that
some of hs lady auditors were wear
ing. Just like Billy Sunday does. Still
another account carries a suggestion 1
that there might have been some lit-:
tie local friction over some labor or
racial problem.
Then again the cowboy preacher is
credited with saying, in effect, "If you
don't like my doctrine, go to some
other church."
Now that is not a bad sentiment. It
is no real good excuse for mobbing
the speaker. There are some people 1
who would agree that it would be wrM
to have it engrossed in letters of gold j
on tablets of (German) silver and'
nailed to the wall of every church '
Just behind the pulpit
t It is quite a common complaint that
too often there is an effort on the part
of the pews to dictate to the pulpit
and such a sign might help some. i
"If you don't like my doctrine go to
some other church "
There are places in the world where
there la only one church, but here in
Ogden there are at least twenty. So
'no one has a monopoly and among,
them anyone ought to find a doctrine
, that suited.
It does not appear from the m v. 3
paper reports just what the cowboy:
preacher's doctrine is, or was, wheth
! er he was espec ially strenuous on im-!
meraion, infant damnation, transub-
stantiation or wheiher he may hae
taught that tue world is flat and that
"we sure do move."
None of the above subjects are suf
ficiently vital to justify his auditors
in resorting to lynch law, but the out
standing facts are that this so-called
cowboy preacher was publicly preach
ing some doctrine. The congregation
attacked him, chased him along the
stieets and only the interference of
the police saved him from serious in
jury. At least that is the report sent
abroad by telegraph. A Tine adver
tisement for our beautiful little city.
Bu1 those are not all the big facts
in this connection. Here is another.
! Nearly ten days have passed, includ
ing one Sunday, and no editorial or
ministerial condemnation of this out
burst of mob violence has been writ
J ten or preached. The papers and pul
' pits have been silent on the subject
V? hat is the matter?
Local reporters are supposed to
keep editorial comments out of their
.stories The reports of this affair in
1 the several 1'tah dailies are strictly
impartial and impersonal. So far as
a non resident reader could judge we,
here in Utah, are quite in the habit of
pulling preachers out of the pulpit
land beating them up.
But the fact Is that this mob of Sun
jday, May 15, 1919, is the only Ogden
', mob of record in 30 years.
Are we entering on a new era, one
of vicious intolerance? Is street
rowdyism on the increase? Is the "un
I hipped mob," as Funston called it, to
dictate what may or may not be
preached or taught on the streets?
Arc we to have restored to us the
rights we were once so proud of. tho
right of free thought, free speech and
j and free assemblage?
It has been quite a custom of late
for each civic order or church that
holds a city, state or national conven
tion to pass "ringing resolutions" de
nouncing anarchy and a lot of Other
things that are evil from their point
of view Some make a specialty of
Bolshevism, others of I. W. W. and
I radicalism. Some specialize on any
or all the various kinds of socialism,
but they all go after anarchy.
Well, that mob on the City Hall
.steps; that mob chasing a man on the
t principal streets: that mob at the door
jof the church that is anarchy, That's
Yherefore -this silence on the sub
Iject? Is it all right to mob street
speakers, providing you are careful to
select one who has no following and
whose doctrines are unpopular?
I The history of Utah is not friendly
to mob law The histor of Utah had
its beginnings in mob violence Of!
all peoples the people of Utah should
have most pronounced views against I
the rule of the mob. In ward and tab
ernacle meetings we still hear occa
sionally the experiences of returned
missionaries who have had their street
meetings broken up by mobs.
But can we complain of those
things, if we tolerate the same condi
tions on our own streets9
And If they happen and we do not
condemn them are we not giving a
tacit consent and approval?
The spirit of lawlessness grows. It
is the cowboy preacher today. To
morrow it may be some one else.
In the good old days "before the
yar" when an editor or minister want
ed to show that he was "virile" and
full of red blood he could take a fall
