AS TO THE NEXT PRESIDENT. Many Democratic papers arc advo- Ifllp V eating the nomination of A Mitchell Palmer as the standard bearer of the party, and popular opinion within the Hi1 party seems to favor that distin guished member of the- cabinet jjp Recently the Denver News, w hich is I 1 without party strings, in reviewing the Democratic possibilities, said: It can be taken for granted that Mr. Wilson will not be a candi date for re-election. If ihe third term did not stand as a bar and we believe, it would lead to an open revolt in the party if an at tempt were made to brush it aside for expediency's sake the presi dent's healih would keep him out Of the rare He has ben ( on- j fined to his room for three month5:. The nation has been exceedingly patient. Mystery has surrounded ihe sickroom. It is the consensus among the medical profession that physically Mr. Wilson is barred from the strenuous life. The man in succession at this writing is A. Mitchell Palmer of Pennsylvania The new atiorno general heard Opportunity knock al :lie door and opened it at once. He has been much in the public eye of late. He gave an excellent account of himself as adminis trator of enemy property during the war. It was a ticklieh job. All kinds of obstacles were placed in his way by resident sympa thizers with the enemy. He had more trouble with the hvphenates within the gate than with the en emy beyond the gate. Accusations were lodged against him hy the enemy, which were taken by the public as his credentials The war I enemy was and is againsi ihe The thought is ever uppermost in the mind of the officers that the prime object of this institu tion is financial service. Our development is the result of a great demand and need for assistance, and people are coming tg know that we supply a long-felt want that we show the way out of fi nancial difficulties. It is our business to help in the financing of a home a new business project the buying of a farm and other things where money is necessary. lit I We are at your all the time.

I Utah Knitting Store dm OGDEN, UTAH party in power, so Mr. Palmer loses nothing in this regard. Even Mr. Br.van. who resigned as for eign secretary when the moment arrived, would not as a candidate attract the enemy vote next jreaj Just now Mr Palmer is receiv ing credit for reaching a settle ment with the Chicago packers without having to go to extremes. He has secured an agreement thai on its face at any rate means a "new freedom" for those haying dealings with the stockyards. The P,ig Five have agreed to drop their side lines that had man ramifica tions and to confine themselves to the mean industry, permitting competition up to a certain point. Mr. Palmer took a middle course. The extremists demanded prose cution, punishment and a general breaking up of the packing busi ness from the federal authorities. The reactionaries thought things were just as they should be, with the law of ihe surival of the fittest operating unrestricted. The manner in which Mr. Palm er tackled the coal strike im pressed conservatives who be lleved him an improvement upon the White House. Labor leaders and radicals generally condemned him for resort to "government by injunction" but the indignation has pretty well died down We reserve judgment on Mr. Palmer's herculean undertaking of defeat ing Mr H. C. L If he wins a victory which all the people can see and feel through .heir pockets he will be a way in the lead in a few month? t'andidlv the part ha- very few to pick and choose from. Mr. Mc Adoo forgot when he resigned that the public memory is short He forgot, too, that he made himself the butt of a national joke by jumping from the national treas ury harship to the "screen." The railroad brotherhoods are behind him. This is "class conscientious ness." As to Mr. Bryan his ' paramount issues" are all in practice. And Mr. Bryan sulked in his tent for two years of momentous history. It is Palmer against the field and favorite on the books at thai. oo THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK. There are dark spots in business but las a whole the outlook is bright. Such is the conclusion of Henry Clews, the famous financial writer, who says: "Comparatively little aetual change in the general financial and Invest ment outlook has taken place dur ing the past week, but there have been development which hold out hope for la better state of things. Political fac tions are- evidently approaching much closer to an agreement with regard j to the ratifications of the peace treaty,1 and it would seem likely that som? definite adjustment may be arrived at In the near future This in itself .should serve to furnish a ne basis, for foreign trade and through it fori domestic business in many branches. I The addition of the Edge bill by Con-j gress on December 16 opens the way : to the establishment of foreign credits and the bettering of relations with for-; eign countries if peace treaty action can be secured as a basis. The events ' of the past few days a lso seem to i shokw a disposition in Congress to1 deal definitely with the railroad situ-j ation Abroad the establishment of an ! anti-inflation policy in Great Britain,; including an effort to curtail further increase of note currency, has coin-' cided with app arcnt growth of export- j ing power to encourage belief in a de-j cided improvement in British condi- lions. Buying power continues good j throughout the country and foreign ' nations are anxious to take as much of our output .is we are willing to re-1 least provided they can obtain reason able credit. The adoption of a policy for the release ot silver by the L nited States treasury is tending to improve our trade and exchange relationships wth silver-using countries, partlcular I in the Orient. There are thus many hopeful factors in the general business and linancial outlook." LAKE BONNEVILLE AND GREAT SALT LAKE. Editor Standard: Would ou kindly inform me correctly on the following questions i am led to believe that Salt Lake was once known as Lake Bonneville and at that time It was a fresh water lake of immense size. From the appearance of the moun tain range west of the city, the present site of Ogden must have been under water several hundred feet, and so far back in history that man, either red or white, must not have appeared on the fate of the great American continent. If such is the case, it is an in teresting question to know when and by whom the Great Salt Lake was called Lake Bonneville? Again at what point to the west did the ancient Lake Bonneville find an outlet to the sea? How far back in history since said outlet ceased lo function and what was the approximate area of the ancient lake at thai remote date9 What is the area of the present Is the lake slowly getting less in size0 What Is the scientific explana tion of the extreme saltness of the present lake0 What is the elevation ol Ogden peak to the east and Ben Lomond to the north? I would appreciate it very much if you can give the data asked for. As I find that most of the citi zens with whom I have talked on the BUbJest seemed somewhat at sea on the points, a general re ply through the columns of your paper would best, answer the purpose tJAMES S. FINLEY. 2409 Lincoln Avenue. Lake Bonneville covered this re gion during the Pleistocene Epoch and had an area of 19,800 square mile and a depth of 1100 feet. Its outlel was to the north through the Snake river. Great Salt Lake Is what re mains of that inland sea. The lines on the mountain side east of Ogden are the old shore line of Lake Bonneville, and the conglomer ate seen within the portals of Ogden canvon was formed at the point wh re Ogden river then emptied into Lake Bonneville. The present site of Og den was under 840 feet of water at one lime. The minerals in Great Salt Lake are ihe concentration of the waters oi Lake Bonneville. Great Salt Lake is 80 miles Ion? and 20 to 32 miles wide. Great Salt Lake has increased In area in the past ten years. The lake is not disappearing. oo EIGHT CHILDREN HAD CROUP "I have eight children and g.v e Fol ey's Honey and Tar to all of ihom," writes Mrs P.

State of Utah Although winter wheat, as a general rule, will be of lower acreage in Utah j this year, the acreage in Weber county will be practically the same according! to reports from M M. Justin, agent of! the federal bureau of crop estimates, j 'The dry weather in the summer rendered the preparation of ground for all seeding rather difficult," says J Mr. Justin, "and the rather early snow- ; fall stopped work unseasonablj earlj in the fall. Both contributed to the re duction in the acreage of wheat sown. In addition there is an attempt to get! back to normal, following methed which were disturbed by attempts to j enlarge wheat production in v. ar nun While the rye acreage remains prac tically unchanged there is a further ! concentration of the crop in Millard county." The estimated acreage of rye in the state totals 18,200 acres. The esti-1 mated acreage of winter wheat in the various counties is as follows: WINTER WHEAT. Estimated Per Cent County Acreage.

In the letter, Governor Calkins, aft er pointing out the necessity of con tinued buying of povornmcnt secur ities, said, "It is fitting thai ihe government should continue to go to the respons ible Americans such as yourself with these securities, because, after all, it is the people who must pay for the war in one way or another, either thronjrh lending their money to the government or throuch taxation There is great danger that your state, which has never failed in war financing, will not reach her quota by December 31. 1919. Therefore. I appeal to you to xert every effort you can to purchase these securities to ihe limit and to I urge upon your friends and business acquaintances, and their families like wise, to continue the patriotic lending of their money to the government."
