I CHILD DESERTED BY
I THE LAW.
'M Whatever bo the necessity of plac
et ing a reproach upon those who bring
'Jf illegitimate children into existence,
wj there Ghould be no stigma on the child
! and no unnatural handicaps inflicted
.4 on one whose only charge is that of
4 being sinned against. Lately the ehih
;M dren's bureau of Washington has
.a asked many questions of the states as
''J to the treatment of the little ones born
j; out of wedlock, including the follow-
J What rights do the laws of this
country give to the child born out of
iw What responsibility has the state to-
r ward him?
What method exists of placing a
IB part of the burden of his support and
iB education upon the father?
jg Can the child inherit property from
either his father or mother0
M Has he a right to his father's namf1
Does the subsequent marriage of hi?
jHH parents make him legitimate in the
gHj eyes of the law?
EH The English common law regard?
'ho child born out of wedlock as the
' "child of no one." He bears no legal
3HH ielationship even to his mother, and
H the subsequent marriage of his par
BM nt3 can not legitimatize him.
Many of our states have altered the
9 common law by statute more favor-
BH able to the child. One of the most rari-
leal departures is found in tbe N'ortl
HH Dakota law of 1917, which declare
vph child the VrltlmatP child of 1t
natural parents, but which weakens
j this broad provision bv the failure tn
I provide adequate administrative ma
, ( hinery.,
Minnesota in 1CT7 pa5sed a law
j which aims to recure for children born
jout of wedlock "the n?arert approxi
mation to the care, support, and edu
cation that the would be entitled to
; receive if born of lawful marrintre."
;The su.te board of control is made the
'child's official guardian; this board
may bring complaint in illegltimacy
proceedings and must see that the
Ichild'H interests are safeguarded.
I Provisions were adopted In Vlrginin
as early as 1785, whereby the issue of
.certain annulled marriages could be
made legitimate, and whereby BUbse
quent marriage could legitimate issue,
rnrt the child could inherit 'from the
j mother These provisions are not even
I yet universal in this country. Four
states have no provision for legitima
tion by subsequent marriage, and
many limitations are placed upon the
right of children of annulled or void
I marriages to bo considered legitimate
Attention is called to the fact that
'our Legal provisions for the support
of the chid born out of wedloick are
i inadequate the payments prescribed
jare often too low, and in most of the
. states the period of support Is too
! brief, sometimes reaching only to the
child's tenth or twelfth year. In one
state only a single p?yment of $50 is
required; in another $90 distributed
over thref years is Tequired. The two
most liberal states have allowances
that total, in one case, $2750 for the
first 18 years of the child's life; and
in the other, 1750 for the first eleven
(years of th- child's life.
The children's bureau suggests that
illegitimacy legislation In the United
; States might be improved by uniform
j provision for the establishment of le
jgitimacy; the legitimation of children
,of null or subsequent marriages; possi
bihty of adoption by the father; and
declaration that the relation of moth
er and child Is the same whether the
child is legitimate or not.
CANNOT STOP COUNTRY'S
This country of ours is enjoying a
prosperity beyond anything of tho
past, notwithstanding the disturbed
I labor conditions. We note that in the
eleen months of 1919 building in 155
cilies in the United States has reached
1 a total 24 per cent larger than is
the record year of 1916. The month of
November was three tirae that of No

jinto the portal of the canyon during
'the winter weather and he has felt
well repaid, for he so informs us in
this letter to The Standard
Editor Standard- Arising from
your editorial answer in The
Standard of Thursday evening,
under the caption, "Lake Bonne
ville and the Great Salt Lake," I
felt impelled, as a nature lover, to
undertake a pilgrimage, so to
speak, up the mountainside to
what must have been the upper
water level of th once extensive
Before outlining very briefly my
journey over the rocks and snow,
allow me to thank you most sin
cerely for our editorial answer a
above noted, as it gave me the
irap'tus and desire to climb to the
former level of the ancient lake.
I ascended by the way of what,
I presume, you call Taylor can
yon. It was a strenuous uphill
hike over snow and rocks. How
ever, one is more than repaid for
the lr.bor expended in the magnifi
cent and very extensive view that
is to be had from the higher alti
tudci. It is only when one climbs
to a great height, several hundred
feet above the city, that he begins
to realize that Ogden is quite an
industrial city, judging from the
heavy pall of smoke that over
hangs the city.
The view from this part of tho
lower Wasatch range, though
grand and extensive, is not nearly
so enchc.nting as the view from a
point high over Oscden canyon.
This point I reached after a rather
laborious hike over the rocks and .
through the snow drifts. The view
up the canyon Is one of unforget
able magnificence and wintry
beauty worth soing many miles to
ser. Far below in the canyon can
be soeu the cataract and roadway
and one can hear the faint mur
murs of the water in the river as
ii flows downward to the valley
far below. The hills on either
side are a picture of wintry beau
ty with every crevice filled with
virgin snow of purest white, and
here and there icic' s of long and
fantastic shapes i icles that but
a short time ago ere miniature
Tho view, looki .g high up the
canyon, la one of magnificent
grandeur, frc:.):, one might almost
say. from the designing hand of L
the great Creator.
Turning from the rugged and jj
wild banfv of tho ranvnn In 11
I Its wintry glory of ice and snow,
to the immensity of the valley
. north and west, one begins to
sense the vastness of the one-time
lake. I concluded that this point,
far up on the mountainside, was
to me, at least, "Point Inspira
tion" for all time.
However, as a pen picture of the
sight on the cliffs above the noise
and smoke of the city is far, far
above m efforts, I pass it on to
someone more able to describe
the charming and majestic out
look. After a prolonged stay at this
point, I loathfully retraced my
steps to tho lower world and,
though the day was well advanced,
I could not resist the desire to
view the famed Ogden canyon, in
all Its winter glory, from the low
er roadway. I entered the canyon
and followed the roadway for con
siderably over a mile, until I was
surrounded by the rock-ribbed
mountains that raised their heads
thousands of feet above me. I
have never had the pleasure of
seeing Ogden canyon in the sum
mer, but it must be a scene of
beauty to improve upon the Ogden
canyon of today in all its ice and
snow. As I moved slowly back
I to the outer world, I felt inward
ly as though I were walking down
one of the corrridors of time.

Federal reserve district, which in j
eludes Ogden, calls attention to the
fact that Adam Smith, the author of
"The Wealth of Nations," who was
born in Scotland In 1723, insisted that
one of the essentials of a successful j
national and individual policy was
thrift, and the director says:
"If you think that our problems to-
day are peculiar to our age, read Adam
Smith. More than a century ago,
